Stand Your What?? Meet Jordan Davis THE NEW Trayvon Martin!


STAND YOUR GROUND...HUH? Folks Meet Jordan Davis the new Trayvon Martin!

Man Who Killed Florida Teen Over Loud Music Alters His Story to Fit Stand Your Ground   
If a person feels  they are at risk of becoming endangered, or in a situation where there is an uncertain chance of continued survival, they surely feel threatened. Most reasonably intelligent human beings would flee a threatening environment out of self-preservation and alert authorities to assuage the danger to others and if possible, arrest whatever posed the threat whether it was a raging fire or a vicious animal. Last Friday in Florida, a gun enthusiast claimed he felt threatened by teenagers playing loud music and instead of leaving the terrifying situation, he pulled out a gun and fired eight or nine times into an SUV killing an unarmed African American teenager. The man is expected to mount a “stand your ground” defense according to his defense attorney’s intimations, and they are altering his story to fit the requirement.

The shooter, 45-year-old Michael David Dunn, in Jacksonville for his son’s wedding, decided to stop at a gas station convenience store afterward so his girlfriend could buy a bottle of wine. Dunn parked next to an SUV with 4 teens inside and complained about their music that elicited a verbal response from the teenagers. Dunn pulled out his gun and fired eight or nine shots into the vehicle striking 17-year-old Jordan Davis several times killing him, and then fled the scene after Dunn told his girlfriend he “fired at these kids.” It was not immediately clear if Dunn had a permit to carry a loaded firearm. After arriving at their Jacksonville hotel, they heard on the news that someone died in the shooting prompting them to flee to their Brevard County home. Witnesses to the shooting took down his license plate number which helped police find Dunn’s house where he was then arrested on Saturday.


When he was arrested, Dunn claimed he was going to turn himself in, but it does not explain fleeing the scene, or the county, or why his girlfriend failed to alert law enforcement about the shooting. After his arrest, Dunn told detectives “he felt threatened and that is the reason he took action.” Police in Jacksonville said the teens were unarmed, and Dunn is being held without bail and was transported to a jail in Jacksonville Monday to face murder and attempted murder charges . On Monday he pleaded not guilty in Brevard County court, and his attorney claimed “it will be very clear that Mr. Dunn acted very responsibly and as any responsible firearms owner would have acted under these circumstances.” On Tuesday, his lawyer told a different story and claimed “he acted the way any responsible firearms owner would act in a similar situation because a shotgun was aimed at him,” and that her client  was “devastated that anyone was harmed in this instance.” Dunn did not tell police about a shotgun, and it is incredulous that he fired eight or nine shots into an occupied parked car and was devastated anyone was harmed. Police still claim the teens were unarmed, and that they admitted their music was loud, but that the confrontation was a verbal exchange over loud music. Apparently no-one left either vehicle. 

A Florida attorney said using a “stand your ground” defense was tricky because “Mr. Dunn is going to have to answer the question, ‘Why did you not call the sheriff’s office? If you are reasonably protecting yourself, why did you leave the scene, get in the car, and the next day, flee the jurisdiction of Duval County?’ There’s no indication that Jordan or anyone else in that car had a gun, there’s no indication that they were any threat to Mr. Dunn.” Maybe the threat to Dunn was that 17-year-old Jordan Davis was African American, or that after just leaving his son’s wedding he was alcohol impaired; police will never know whether alcohol was a factor because they did not locate and arrest him in another county until the following day. 

A little over a week before Dunn killed Jordan Davis, a task force created by Florida governor Rick Scott after George Zimmerman shot and kill unarmed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin found the state’s “Stand Your Ground” law is “mostly fine” and recommended only small changes. The task force made their conclusions despite research that shows “Stand Your Ground” laws actually increase homicides. According  to a new study by Texas A&M University using police data, Stand Your Ground laws are associated with significant increases in homicides, and that the homicides are classified as murders. Another study from Georgia State University using public health data found passage of Stand Your Ground laws are associated with a significant increase in homicides, and they concluded “these findings raise serious doubts against the argument that Stand Your Ground laws make public safer.” In fact, the Texas A&M study found no evidence Stand Your Ground laws deter crimes like burglary, robbery, and aggravated assault, and instead, the law is used to protect criminals rather than innocent victims. 

Researchers at the Urban Institute also found striking racial disparities in how Stand Your Ground laws played out once a defendant claims self-defense. In Stand Your Ground law states, twice as many homicides are justified than in non-stand your ground states, and when white shooters kill black victims, 34% of the homicides are deemed justifiable, but when the shooter is Black and the victim is white, only 3% of deaths are ruled justifiable. The proliferation of stand your ground laws is the gift of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), and they may help Michael Dunn as a defense for killing another unarmed African American teenager. 

There are several differences between Trayvon Martin’s death and the most recent case of an unarmed African American teen’s death and none as important as the number of witnesses. Dunn fled the scene immediately after firing into the vehicle Jordan Davis was sitting, and the county upon learning he had killed the teen. Dunn’s attorney said “He didn’t think he had harmed anybody and he just thought he had scared them off and he wanted to report it, but he didn’t want to throw himself to the wolves in a strange city without representation,” but if he “acted in self-defense” and saw a shotgun, then he had nothing to fear from law enforcement officials. However, it was three days after his arrest that his attorney claimed Dunn acted responsibly after having a shotgun pointed at him. The story is as suspicious as Dunn’s lawyer’s claim he was “devastated anyone was harmed” after firing eight or nine times into an occupied vehicle. 
Any death of an innocent victim at the hand of a gun owner is tragic, but this is the second unarmed African American teenager killed under the guise of self-defense by a white man. Residents were shaken after the shooting death of 17-year-old Jordan Davis, and police do not suspect Dunn knew the victim, but it appears he knew the victim was African American. The shooting may not have been racially motivated, and maybe Dunn imbibed a bit much at his son’s wedding, but one thing is perfectly clear; another white man killed another unarmed African American teenager and claimed it was self-defense. Based on his attorney’s allusions, he may claim he was standing his ground after being angered by loud music and threatened by words, and in a “stand your ground” state like Florida, one can only hope he doesn’t get away with it.

Keyshia Cole Reacts To Explicit Photo, & Slams Haters 
A picture leaked online of Keyshia Cole going down on someone other than her husband !!! We are not sure how old this picture is, but clearly someone must be pissed at Keyshia Cole!! NSFW Picture inside, uncensored!!! 
The alleged picture of Keyshia Cole giving a blow job, is not Keyshia Cole …..this is cruddy for someone to release this image, clearly she didn’t know she was being pictured. 
Now a Twitter user by the name of @RedHeadMari has stepped up to say it is her in the x-rated picture being circulated, not Keyshia Cole, as many on the Internet have suggested. Mari took to Twitter to apologize for the mixup. @RedHeadMari tweeted: 

“My ex, whom I have tatted on me, leaked the picture…She also mentions: 
“Damn I’m a different woman than the girl I was…It was me when I was young & dumb.” 
When the image surfaced, Keyshia tweeted: 
“Evil a** haters STAY on some bullsh*t! Y’all wish! Lol! Let em have fun! They seem to enjoy being filthy, I say let emm talk!”

Thank goodness that Mari was a real woman and apologized to Keyshia: 
“I’m so sorry I really am, it is soo embarrassing, I was 17 1/2 in the picture, I’m 20 years old now…I’m so sorry. Thanks for being understanding. I know you’re a newlywed & I would never do that to you, I love you!!!” 
Keyshia responded to Mari’s tweet.

According to his rep, Hector’s body will be flown to New York City for a private funeral and burial at his mother’s request. It’s unclear when the private funeral will be held.

Did Will Smith Tried To Pull Favors With President Obama To Keep T.I. Out Of Jail?

When T.I. returned to prison in 2010 for violating the terms of his probation, he effectively threw a wrench in his career. The Atlanta-based rapper had a roster of celebrities supporting him through his trials, including Eminem, Busta Rhymes, Diddy, and Nelly. But the most supportive friend was likely Will Smith, who reportedly attempted to use his political connections to get T.I. released. “Will actually went as far as getting in touch with [attorney general] Eric Holder and the Obama administration trying to see if we could get some kind of release. He was very politely told that was not possible,” T.I. laughed. 
He added, “He was in deep discussions about it. And he’s been a huge contributor to the administration, and I mean not just in finances, I’m talking about time and other kinds of efforts, so it ain’t like his words were falling on deaf ears.” 
T.I. isn’t upset that Will Smith couldn’t score him a break: “I didn’t even expect no help. I didn’t expect nobody to help me. I knew I made my bed and I knew I had to lay in it.” 
before burying him in concrete'Dorice 'Dee Dee' Moore charged with the murder of Abraham Shakespeare 
The lottery winner's body was found under a slab of concrete in 2009. Detectives obtained CCTV of her buying plastic sheeting and duct tape 

Woman 'befriended $30million lottery winner, swindled him out of his money and then murdered him 

Site of burial was owned by Moore's ex-boyfriend, detectives say 
A woman accused of befriending a $30million lottery winner, swindling him of his cash and killing him began her trial for murder today. 
Dorice 'Dee Dee' Moore, 40, allegedly became close to Florida lottery winner Abraham Shakespeare by claiming she was writing a book about him. 
His body was found under a concrete slab behind a home detectives say was owned by Moore's ex-boyfriend in Hillsborough County. He had been shot twice.

Moore is accused of killing Shakespeare, of Polk County, in April 2009. He won a $30million lottery jackpot in 2006. 
Hillsborough Sheriff David Gee alleges she tried to dodge suspicion by using Shakespeare's phone to send family members text messages saying he was OK and also writing letters pretending to be him, according to 10 News. 
Moore denies the murder and says she took over Shakespeare's assets, about $3.5million and a mansion, authorities say, so he could get away from people pestering him for money. 
'The money was like a curse to him. And now it's become a curse to me,' Moore told reporters in 2010. 'God knows I would never take another human being's life.' 
But investigators claim Moore turned to a man called Greg Smith to cover up the crime. 
He was already signed up as a sheriff's informant and was working with detectives to get close to her and gather information. 
Sheriff Gee allege Moore trusted Greg Smith so much that she asked him for help to find a prisoner willing to take the blame for killing Shakespeare in exchange for $50,000. 
The trial is expected to last two weeks. A pool of 100 prospective jurors was screened yesterday. 
10 News reported that more than half raised their hand when asked if they were familiar with the case and will now each have to be quizzed on the extent of their knowledge of the case. 
 Mr. Shakespeare collected his massive lottery check with his family by his side in 2006 
 Ms Moore used these leggy photos of herself on social media websites 

After his win Shakespeare, a 43-year-old truck driver, won a court challenge from a fellow trucker who accused him of snatching the winning ticket out of his wallet while the two were delivering meat to Miami restaurants. 
Shakespeare's family reported him missing in November 2009, telling the Polk County sheriff's office they hadn't seen him since April. 
Speaking at the time, Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said when their investigation began they had hoped to find Shakespeare alive. 
When the body was found, his brother Robert Brown was quoted by 10 News as saying: 'I'm missing my little brother, what ain't gonna be back no more. 
'Dead and gone, and everything. He ain't coming back.'

BRAVO Announces 3 New Reality TV Shows: ‘Taking Atlanta’, ‘Married to Medicine’ + ‘Don’t Be Tardy’

Hold onto your reality TV seats, Bravo has snagged three brand, spankin’ new reality shows–all out of ATLANTA. To date, the popular southern city has launched popular shows like Real Housewives of Atlanta, Love & Hip Hop Atlanta,and R&B Divas, but there’s plenty more from where that came from. Compliments of AJC, we’ve got the skinny on the three new shows titled: ‘Don’t Be Tardy,’ ‘Married to    Medicine’ and ‘Taking Atlanta’. Here’s the scoop on each: 
À        ‘Don’t Be Tardy for the Party’: Duh, we already know what this one’s about and after we learned that Kim Zolciak’s leaving RHOA, it makes perfect sense. The show will follow Kim’s professional and family/home life. And here’s the releases description: 
·        “Season two follows Kim and Kroy Biermann in the next phase of their marriage, which involves the demands of their ever-growing family, purchasing their dream house, and a possible adoption. The pressure is on as Kim tries to resolve extended family issues and manage the renovation of their house all while juggling being a loving mother, a caring wife and staying in the limelight.” 
À        ‘Married to Medicine’ appears to be a show about educated, rich and affluent women who are connected to the lucrative world of medicine. Peep an excerpt of the release: 
·        “Married to Medicine” follows a group of successful and educated women, including doctors and wives of doctors, who are connected to the world of medicine in Atlanta. Whether delivering babies in Louboutins or rushing off to galas in Buckhead, these women do everything with style, drama, and of course, southern flair. 
À        ‘Taking Atlanta’ seems to be a younger version of RHOA, as the cast/characters work in industries like entertainment, real estate, etc. The release describes: 
·        “Taking Atlanta” tracks the city’s next-generation movers and shakers as they make their mark in the glamorous arenas of fashion, music, hospitality and real estate while enjoying the city’s sizzling social scene and balancing the demands of their tumultuous family situations.” 

If you’d like to snag a role, rumor has it that there’s still time. Production has not yet begun and casting is under-wraps. Anywho, what are your thoughts on the newest reality TV shows? Sound interesting or an over-saturation of the ATL reality market?

Kanye Takes Kim to Visit His Mother's Grave

Kanye West took Kim Kardashian to his mother's grave site on the fifth anniversary of her death. 

Five years after his mother’s tragic death,Kanye West feels that he finally has a woman in his life worth bringing to her grave. 
After spending Thanksgiving with the Kardashian clan, the rapper brought Kim Kardashian back to his mother's resting place in Oklahoma City to spend a meaningful moment at her graveside and to meet his family, almost exactly five years after she was buried, and RadarOnline.com has the exclusive details. 
"Kanye brought Kim to Oklahoma City the day after Thanksgiving to pay respects to his mother and to meet his mother's side of the family," a source exclusively tellsRadarOnline.com. 
"This was her first time meeting them." 
The high-profile couple managed to go undercover for the most part on their brief visit to the Midwest, flying out of LAX on Friday and jetting out of Oklahoma City on Saturday, Radar has confirmed from multiple sources. 
"This was a really monumental moment for Kanye because he adored his mother," another source tellsRadar. 
"He wouldn't have brought Kim there unless he was completely in love with her." 
Donda West, Kanye's beloved mother, passed away at the age of 58 in November 2007 due to complications from plastic surgery procedures, and was buried in her hometown later in the month. 

Royce Reed BITES BACK At HATERS, Says CUSTODY BATTLE Is About The BEST For Braylon 

Royce Reed has taken to Twitter to respond to people with negative talk about her decision to ask a judge to make Dwight Howard pay her legal bills.  Find out what she said. 

We told you previously that Royce Reed wants a judge to make Dwight Howard pay for her portion of their custody battle....and some people felt some kind of way about that.  So with folks bashing Royce on Twitter and across the blogs, she responded with a tweet and post saying, 
"We will never struggle... Period! Braylon will always have the best! That's what I fight for!" 

While Royce is saying she needs money to fight for what's best for her son Braylon, it seems that most folks are jumping on the "gold-digger" bandwagon when this is not about getting more child support (at least not this part).  Royce is fighting tooth and nail for full custody....because Dwight has filed for full custody for himself.  And no mother wants her child taken from her. 

And we see that Usher and his money allowed him to get full custody in his battle with Tameka Raymond...so Royce does have reason to be concerned. 

We'll keep you posted on the judge's decision.....

Rita Ora Bags Rihanna's Fast and Furious 6 Role

It's Rihanna out and Rita Ora in for The Fast and the Furious 6. 
In April it was reported that Rihanna was gearing up to play a villainous role in the upcoming blockbuster The Fast and the Furious 6. 
But it has now been revealed that Rita Ora has been cast for the part over the Diamonds singer. 
Rita, who celebrates her 22nd birthday Monday, apparently impressed during castings outshining the 24-year-old Rihanna. 
According to The Sun, Rihanna's hectic schedule clashed with filming commitments which led to the decision to take on Rita. 
A source told the newspaper: 'Rihanna impressed movie bosses with her role in Battleship. But schedules didn’t work out and Rita really shone during castings. 
The Hot Right Now singer, who has previous acting experience proved to be a big hit with the filmmakers, as the source added: 'They loved her look and her attitude.' 

Mariah Carey Performs for the lighting of The Rockerfeller Christmas Tree! 

It's been nearly two decades since she released her holiday hit All I Want for Christmas Is You. 
And Mariah Carey on Tuesday night proved just how enduring the track has been with festive fans as she performed at New York City's Rockefeller Center for the annual tree lighting ceremony. 

Below the 80ft tall Norway Spruce which will be lit on Wednesday night, and with Santa Claus by her side, Mariah belted out the track - and gave fans an eyeful of her ample cleavage while prancing around the stage in a low-cut red and silver dress. 

Here’s  video: 


The 42-year-old star took to Twitter before her taped performance. 'Walking to the stage to perform at Rock center. Let the festivities begin! Thx 2 all the lambs who are braving the temps here! LYM!!!' she wrote her eight million-plus followers. 
Temperatures fell into the 30s in midtown Manhattan on Tuesday night. 
And while Mariah acknowledged she would be performing in the bitter cold, she wasn't detoured from slipping into a frilly dress. 
Still there wasn't a hint of a shiver from the star, who daintily held her mic in hand with a pair of opera length red satin gloves to match her frock.

Mariah is among a host of stars performing at the 80th annual Christmas in Rockefeller Center tree lighting celebration. 
CeeLo Green, Il Divo, Rod Stweart, Victoria Justice, Trace Adkins, Chris Mann and the world famous Radio City Rockettes are among the featured acts. 
Thousands gathered in the cold to watch Mariah's taping ahead of Wednesday night's main event. 

Bette Midler and Billy Crystal will also make special appearances at the two-hour event, televised by NBC on Wednesday night. 
The Rockefeller Christmas Tree was unveiled earlier this month in Rockefeller Center. 
Topped with a Swarovski Star comprised of 25,000 crystals and weighing 550lbs, the tree will now be lit daily from 5:30am to 11:30pm through January 7; 24 hours on Christmas day; and until 9pm on New Year's Eve. 

Angie Stone & Sunshine Anderson ADDED To "R&B Divas," New ATL Shows Pop Up On BRAVO 

The streets are buzzing about big changes over at "R&B Divas" with two high-profile castmates leaving and two new divas set to take their place. "R&B Divas" turned out to be a surprise hit for TV One, but the show's season one cast-lineup wasn't exactly a hit with the executives or people surveyed about the show.  We told you earlier that Nicci Gilbert's likability wasn't very high among viewers so she got the axe, and now, sources are reporting that Faith Evans is also walking away from the show.  It's not for certain whether Faith is going away willingly...but she's not expected to be back. 

So who will be filling the void?  R&B veterans Sunshine Anderson ("Heard It All Before") and Angie Stone ("Brother") are expected to come on-board.  And since "R&B Divas" isn't necessarily built on scandals and arguments, it may be a good way to put the ladies music back on the map since we haven't heard much from either of them in a while.  I DO want some dish on Mathew Knowles (Sunshine's manager) and D'Angelo (Angie's baby daddy) though. 

As for now, Syleena Johnson, KeKe Wyatt and Monifah are expected to be back (though TV One has not confirmed). 

Kenan Thompson Has New Show In Development 

Kenan Thompson is about to have another go at having his own show. Kenan, who has been with the sketch comedy series, Saturday Night Live (SNL), since 2003, is attached to write, star in and executive produce the untitled comedy, which has received a script commitment from NBC. The single-camera comedy would star Kenan as Kenan Monroe, a guy who gives up his New York life and moves to his in-laws’ house in the suburbs, where he must contend with three generations of problems. SNL’s Lorne Michaels, will also executive produce through his Broadway Video banner and Universal Television, marking the second project he has set up this development season. 

Meanwhile, Kenan’s old partner in television, Kel Mitchell, said that these days Kenan keeps as much distance from him as possible. “The truth is Kenan does not want to be seen with me in any form of media, or even have my name mentioned around him.” 
Kel says he nearly reunited with Kenan for an interview with a popular magazine but Kenan pulled out at the last minute and he thinks it’s because — Kenan’s still trying to separate himself from his old co-star. 
But Kel’s not bitter, explaining, “I have not been upset about this. I respect his choice of wanting to make a name for himself solo.” 

Royal Shade: Prince Philip Shades Alicia Keys During Her Performance. She makes his ears feel like their on FIRE!

Alicia Keys might have a new album coming out, but she’s been making headlines lately for everything else other than her new music. Recently, Alicia Keys addressed the rumors that alleged that she had an affair with her now husband producer Swizz Beatz while he was married to Mashonda. In a recent interview with Jet Magazine, Alicia denied that she had ever had an affair with Swizz Beatz. She claimed that she and Swizz actually began dating after he and Mashonda had called it quits and had been over for months. However, the allegations weren’t invented by the gossip blogs. Mashonda shocked everyone a few years ago when she accused the singer for having an affair with Swizz Beatz while they were married. Both Mashonda and Alicia continue to go back and fourth in interviews, and Mashonda recently claimed again that she and Swizz were not separated when the alleged affair took place. Since then, the shade on Twitter has been pretty thick between Swizz and Mashonda. 

Well it looks like there’s someone new throwing some shade Alicia’s way. 
Alicia Keys recently performed at the Royal Variety Performance at the Royal Albert Hall and Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip were in attendance. And according to reports, Prince Philip wasn’t too thrilled about her performance. Onlookers claim that while Alicia Keys sang, the prince stuck his fingers in his ears.

The London Evening Standard reports: 
In the 65 years since he married the Queen, Prince Philip has built a reputation for his caustic wit and politically incorrect gaffes. 
And he remained true to form at last night’s Royal Variety Performance at the Royal Albert Hall. The Duke, 91, was seen putting his fingers in his ears during a song by American Alicia Keys, making clear what he thought of her. 
Teen favourites One Direction, Girls Aloud, Rod Stewart and Britain’s Got Talent winners Ashleigh Butler and her dancing dog Pudsey were among the other acts who performed at the 100th variety show. 
But when asked after the show what his favourite act had been, he said: “All of them … but to be honest we’re both stone deaf.” 

Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie will tie the knot soon 
The wedding of the century is still on, Brad Pitt said on Monday at the premiere of his new film, Killing them Softly in New York that the kids are pressuring him and the wedding is still on. 
 “I am getting more pressure from my kids, and it is something I want to do within their lifetime, but I also feel like the time has come,” 

“The time is nigh,” he added. “It’s soon. I got a good feeling about it.”

Bobbi Kristina & Boyfriend Nick BREAK UP, Bobbi WRECKS Her Camaro 
After all the hoopla surrounding their relationship, No more Bobbi Kris & Nick?  That's what it seems like.  Krissy's been tweeting some cryptic messages the last few days, talking about only being able to trust and rely on herself.  And these tweets come after Nick tweeted days ago that he and Bobbi Kris are not together at all: 

@REALbkBrown and I are not engaged or dating. Just close like we have always been 
Oh?  Krissy tweeted this week a few things that seemed a bit hard to make out grammatically, but we think we get what she was trying to say:
“I’m leaving, this this good ole town and driving to the send of the world. Maybe it’s beautiful there (: Xxxo” 
 “Who do I trust in this world? Pfft well that’s easy beezie, #Myself, No1 will kno’s me like ME&They’d rather not take thtchance2knoME, &2me. That’s incredibly fine .. Because you’d be missing out on a #REALperson. Xxo #amryofme #onmyown #goingtomakeit #determined. ” 

“I guess it’s time 4me2stop depending on anymore. It’s my time2follow what Mom&The Lord put out on this path for me. #Thankful. Mom xxo.”
Oh the drama of youngins... 
Meanwhile, Bobbi Kris was attempting to pull out of her apartment complex in Atlanta in her new Camaro (didn't she already wreck her old one?), when she skipped over a curb and "lost control of the car".  So her car was totally wrecked...after crashing into trees on a nearby trail:
Sigh.  Cops told TMZ that they don't believe drugs or alcohol played a role here.  Really?  All this while simply making a left out of a parking lot?  We beg to differ.  But what do we know? 
Cops cited Bobbi Kris with a ticket for "Failure to maintain lane."  And she escaped the accident totally unscathed.  Horrible driver.  Lucky girl. 


Nacrisha Cash, Gay College Student, Beaten In Alleged Hate Crime!

Nacrisha Cash, Gay College Student, Beaten In Alleged Hate Crime 
A college student who was beaten at a gas station near campus Sunday says she was the victim of a hate crime. 
Nacrisha Cash, 19, told WSVN she believes her style of dress and sexual orientation prompted the assault, which left her with cuts and bruises on her face and lips. 
According to a police report, the incident began when the Florida Memorial University student and a friend sought snacks at a Citgo station on NW 42nd Avenue in Miami Gardens. 

After watching Cash argue with the cashier because the women weren't buying enough merchandise to justify a debit card purchase, the suspect, who was in line behind them, reportedly yelled, "Shut the fuck up or I'll fuck your fat gay ass up." 
The suspect then made a purchase and followed the pair outside, where Cash says he then punched her several times in the face and kicked her as she lay on the ground. 
"He told me, 'Oh you wanna be like a dude? I'm gonna beat you like one,'" Cash said.

Miami Gardens Police spokesman Bill Bamford told HuffPost investigators are still taking statements and will view surveillance video from the gas station when the owner returns to town later this week. The alleged remarks make the ensuing assault and subsequent criminal investigation exceptionally more serious. "Once the comments were made about her sexual orientation, it does raise the bar to a hate crime," Bamford told WSVN. 

I guess one day it GETS BETTER? 


The Daily Buzz For Nov 29

Gabriel Aubry OBTAINS Restraining Order AGAINST Olivier Martinez, Graphic Pics Of Gabe's Face RELEASED!
It really was WORSE than I imagined. Halle Berry's baby daddy Gabriel Aubry has obtained a restraining order against Halle's fiance Olivier Martinez, following their Thanksgiving Day brawl 
Since their fight, Gabriel Aubry has obtained a restraining order against Halle Berry's fiance Olivier Martinez.  We told you previously about the scuffle the two had on Thanksgiving, and though Gabe swung first, it makes sense that he got a restraining order since he took the brunt of the brawl.   
Newly released photos of a badly bruised and scarred Gabe have been released and they show he REALLY took a beating. Gabe's modeling agent is going to be PISSED. 
And you'll recall, Halle got a restraining order against Gabe last week because of the fight (though Olivier walked away with only a few minor scratches). 

Olivier clearly put his boxing skills on display.  Do better fellas. 

Third ACCUSER Comes Forward In The Kevin Clash UNDERAGE Sex Scandal 
A third accuser has stepped forward with claims of underage sex acts with puppeteer Kevin Clash. 
According to attorney Jeff Herman, a third accuser, known as "John Doe" will be filing a suit against Kevin in Manhattan Federal Court. Herman says his client is now 29-years-old and claims to have engaged in sexual acts with Kevin when he was sixteen. 

Though he wishes to remain anonymous, Herman said his client began writing a book in 2009 about his experiences with Kevin and pages from the book will be announced during a press conference on today...after the lawsuit it filed.  Of course.  We're pubbing BOOKS at underage sex claims press conferences now?  Oh. 
The lawsuit states that "John Doe" moved to New York to model at age 16, and chatted with Kevin on a gay chat line before going over to his apartment for some "some sexual activity.”  He claims Kevin went by the pseudonym "Craig" and said he was 30-years-old. 

"John Doe" says he figured out who Kevin was after meeting him again in 2003 and 2004. 
So what tipped him off? The attorney said, "He saw Elmo dolls, an Emmy award and photographs of Elmo with movie stars." Again, of course. 

Stay tuned for the developing story.

Tahiry Confirms Vh1 Rumors & Outs Joe Budden On Twitter 
Not sure what's going on with Joe Budden and Tahiry, but whatever it is, it's got Tahiry fuming!! About 4 or 5 hours ago, Tahiry went on a Twitter rant about Joe Budden not being able to let her go despite all of the females he gets with. Tahiry also says she's the reason why Joe Budden is relevant among other things. 
From the looks of the tweets, it seems that maybe Joe Budden did yet another song about Tahiry and at this point I'm sure Tahiry has had enough. And while the rumors were running rampant that the two would appear on the newest season of Vh1's "Love & Hip Hop" New York, Joe Budden never confirmed those rumors. However, Tahiry sure confirmed it in her tweets!! 

So get ready for Tahiry's tweets when you LOOK  below:.Please read the tweets from the bottom to the top: 
I went to Joe Budden's page to see if there was a response to what Tahiry was saying and so far? Not a damn thing! But I'm sure you all know Joe Budden is not one to stay quiet, so now its just a matter of time. What are your thoughts on this? 

Nicki Minaj Snaps Back At Steven Tyler After “American Idol” Criticism 
Nicki Minaj wasted no time hopping onto Twitter yesterday to snap back at former American Idol judge, Steven Tyler, after he criticized the competition’s new judges in a recent interview with MTV News. 
During the sit down, when asked if it’s difficult to be on a judge’s panel and listen to someone else’s opinion, Tyler responds: 

“It wasn’t hard for me, but I would imagine it’s hard for some people, and they need a manager to say ‘Shut the f-ck up, and just give them your opinion.’ These kids, they just got out of a car from the Midwest somewhere and they’re in New York City, they’re scared to death; you’re not going to get the best out of them. If it was Bob Dylan, Nicki Minaj would have had him sent to the cornfield! Whereas, if it was Bob Dylan with us, we would have brought the best of him out, as we did with Phillip Phillips. Just saying.” 
He continues with; “I know that they’ve got something going on on the judges’ panel, [and] it shouldn’t be that, it should be just the opposite: They should have something going on, which is called ‘camaraderie.’ “They should have something going on so thick and beautiful that they can lay it over the new talent that’s trying to birth itself. It needs to be birthed, not judged by ‘entertainment’ factors, it needs to be judged by people that [are] honest, true, that have the ‘it’ factor. Not the ‘it’ factor because they can fight. The f— is that all about?” 

This rubbed Nicki the wrong way, as she says that she didn’t do anything to him, and finds his comment racist. She later took to Twitter to fire back at the Aerosmith frontman. 
 “Steven Tyler said I would have sent Bob Dylan to a cornfield??? Steven, you haven’t seen me judge one single solitary contestant yet!” she began, then continued with; “I understand you really wanted to keep your job but take that up with the producers. I haven’t done anything to you. That’s a racist comment… You assume that I wouldn’t have liked Bob Dylan??? why? black? rapper? what? go f-ck yourself and worry about yourself babe.” 

“LOL lets make him a shirt that says “No Coloreds Allowed” then escort him down 2 Barbara Walters so he can tell how he was threatened w/guns,” she said referring to Mariah Carey’s interview with Walters. 
Nicki goes on to say that when Steven first went on “Idol” he was ridiculed by peers and fans, and called a sell out. She says that he’s now passing the ridicule on to the next judge. The Young Money femcee will make her official debut as a judge on the competition when it returns to FOX in January. 

VH1 Start Production On TLC Biopic 
For the fortunate set who grew up during TLC‘s reign, it’s common-knowledge that the trio brought the drama both on and off the stage. 

Naturally, then, a biopic centred on the lives of Tionne ‘T Boz’ Watkins, the late Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopez, and Rozonda ‘Chilli’ Thomas, has been talked about for more than a decade. 
Yet as the 10th year since Lopes’ passing draws to a close, fans will be elated to learn that the made-for-TV-movie has finally gone in to production – with the iconic group’s surviving members serving as “consultants and executive producers”. 

Peep the press release below… 
LOS ANGELES, CA – November 26th, 2012 – VH1 is casting the roles of Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas, for a full-length TV movie based on the celebrated pop/ hip hop/ R&B group TLC. With a script by acclaimed screenwriter Kate Lanier (“What’s Love Got To Do With It,” “Set it Off,” “Beauty Shop”), the untitled film is slated to begin shooting in early 2013. 
TLC’s humble beginnings in Atlanta quickly led to an unprecedented rise to fame in the 1990’s as one of the world’s most talented, celebrated and highest-selling female groups of all time. Through very public and high-profile success, turmoil and tragedy, TLC left an indelible stamp of female empowerment that changed the face of the music industry forever. 
The two surviving members of the group, Chilli and T-Boz, have signed on as consultants and executive producers for the movie. Executive producing the TLC bio-pic are Bill Diggins and Maggie Malina. Alexander Motlagh is executive producing for Pop Films.  Jeff Olde and Jill Holmes serve as executive producers for VH1. 
Granted every biopic brings with it fresh debate about what’s fact, what’s fairytale, and what’s  fallacy, we’re relatively amped for this. Having personally grown up during TLC’s rise, their story is one that future generations of music lovers should more than just know; it should be one they come to appreciate. For, without TLC, a host of today’s biggest artists may not have been here. 
From a pure dramatics angles too, their story almost Shakespearian. Astronomical success, bankruptcy, burning down houses, in- fighting, illness, commercial redemption, and sadly death. Their narrative is epic. As such, this is one project we’ll be watching closely.

Man Dies After Allegedly Shoplifting at Wal-Mart ?? 
A man is dead after shoplifting at a  Wal-Mart in Georgia? It appears that he was put in a choke hold by a Wal-Mart employee or two?? Police responded to a report of a shoplifter to find the suspect unresponsive and bleeding from his nose and mouth.  The man was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. 
The man took two DVD players from a Walmart in Georgia around 1:30 a.m. on Sunday but was confronted by two associates and a contract security officer outside. The security officer may have put the man in a choke hold, police said. 
A Walmart spokesperson said its employees are trained to disengage from situations that would put themselves or others at risk. 

The AJC reported when police arrived at the scene, the trio that caught and subdued the man was still on top of him.  When an officer placed handcuffs on the suspect, he was limp. 
Lawsuit,Lawsuit, Lawsuit!!! It appears like they killed that man for 2 dvd players really?? This is too sad, RIP to the man who didn’t live to tell his side of the story!! 

Bobbi Kristina Upset with Cissy Houston 
Back in June news leaked that Cissy Houston was writing a down and dirty tell-all about her late daughter Whitney Houston [click here if you missed that].

Bobbi Kristina also drops the bomb that she has been reaching out to her father Bobby Brown but he refuses to return any of her calls or texts. 

MAG FAB: Cassie & Azealia Banks SEX IT UP For V Mag's "It Girls" 
Cassie, pictured above in a Versace leather dress and her own Cartier braceltes, & Azealia Banks are fashion's "It Girls" of the moment.  And the sexy ladies are featured in V magazine's Girls of Now issue for their Girl Power special. 
They've been releasing singles and mixtapes all year, and flaunting their sex appeal while doing so to keep tongues wagging.  So it's no surprise that model/singer Cassie (pictured above in a striped Balmain jacket) & rapper Azealia Banks (below in are V mag's It Girls. 
The two ladies shot a spread, along with folks like Sky Ferreira, Venus X and more, and dished on their personal faves. 

Azealia (above in a Donna Karan Collection jacket, Alexander Wang bustier, Norma Kamali briefs & Dior hat) on her biggest moment of 2012: “Releasing my mixtape, Fantasea. I had struggled in the past to create full bodies of work, and that was my first official one, so I’m proud of that!” 
Cassie's highlights: 
What was your biggest moment of 2012? I put out two singles! “Balcony,” with Young Jeezy and “The Boys,” with Nicki Minaj. I’m beyond excited! I’ve been really patient with music, and things are moving now. I couldn’t be happier. My other big moment of 2012 was going to Italy. It was my first time and I can’t wait to go back. 

How do you feel about the term “It girl”? Everyone’s definition of “It” is different. To me it’s a girl/woman of the moment who’s doing something positive to change the world and make her stamp on history—in fashion, politics, music, anything. 

What is “It” right now? Girls taking chances with their haircuts! Also Gabby Douglas; she won the gold medal at the Olympics and now the sky is the limit for her. 

What is your style philosophy for 2012 and beyond? Keep it simple. I say dress yourself for your attitude. You’ll carry it with more confidence because it’s how you really feel. 

Any New Year’s resolutions? My friend Allison just did a triathlon today; it’s so inspiring. My resolution for 2013 is to try something different, something I never dreamed I could do and do it with no intent of failure. 

What are your goals for 2013? Album, tours and travel. My goals are to continue doing things that make me happy, stay around positive people, and take care of myself better. 

How would you like to see the world change in the coming year? Road rage has got to stop! I’m working on my personal road rage one day at a time. 

Who is your favorite It girl of all time? Bianca Jagger. She is a style icon, but also a human-rights advocate. The best of both worlds. 

Hopefully both of them get their wishes of dropping a full length studio album at some point next year....

JetBlue Flight Attendant Arrested After Boyfriend Allegedly Steals Traveler's iPhone 
People love to break the law at the airport. A flight attendant at New York's John F. Kennedy Airport was arrested over the weekend, after her boyfriend allegedly jacked another passenger's iPhone 4. 
Stacy Ann-Smith, 27, and her boyfriend, 23-year-old Jason McCaulay were going through security on their way to board an off-duty free flight to Puerto Rico, when they were busted by police. 
The theft victim alerted Port Authority cops when he noticed that his phone was gone. According to authorities, McCaulay swiped the phone at around 11 p.m., after the traveler placed the device in the bin to go through a metal detector. 

Smith claimed that McCaulay panicked and slipped the phone in her pocket, without her knowledge. After being brought in to be identified by the phone's owner, PA officers realized that McCaulay came into the airport alongside Smith who fittingly headed to the bathroom. An officer followed and confronted her, at which point she denied any knowledge of the theft, until the phone was uncovered in a stall. “I left the phone in the bathroom stall,” she admitted, according to sources. 
The couple, both from Queens, was promptly arrested. 
McCaulay is said to have confessed to taking the phone, and was charged with petit larceny, and criminal possession of stolen property. He remains in custody pending an arraignment hearing in Queens Criminal Court, while Smith was given  a desk-appearance ticket before being released. 

Warren Sapp Requests Reduction In Child Support Payments 
Ex-NFL star Warren Sapp is desperate to lower his child support payments … even though he struck a deal with one of his baby mamas to NEVER change the amount — of course, that was before he went broke. 
He has been paying baby mama Angela Sanders a total of $2,500 a month, but recently filed documents in a Florida court to have that number modified, as Sapp is facing some serious financial struggles through bankruptcy.   The main issue here is that the previous agreement he made with Ms. Sanders in 2001 stated that neither party could “seek modification” for the child support payments based off of income alterations. 
Problem is, back in 2001 — when Sapp was a Tampa Bay Buccaneers cash-making superstar — he and Sanders added a clause to their child support agreement that said … neither party could “seek modification” based on changes in income. 

Presumably, Sapp was trying to protect his millions. 
Sanders tells TMZ she’s “frustrated” by Sapp’s request … because she was fine sticking to the $2,500 a month while his pockets were getting fatter — so it’s unfair for him to lower it now. 
According to the docs, Sapp is also trying to modify child-support payments for his 4 other baby mamas. 

A judge has yet to rule. Get it together Warren!! 

J Dilla's Critically Acclaimed Donuts To Be Re-Released As A 45 Box Set [PHOTOS] 
Fans of James “J Dilla” Yancey are no doubt familiar with the famed Detroit producer's critically acclaimed instrumental album Donuts.

Thanks to the innovative label Stones Throw, Donuts will be re-released as a box set of 45s and will include some surprises as well. Check out photos 
Wax addicts already know that vinyl is where Stones Throw shines and as usual, they're spicing up the haul of the original Donuts album by adding “Signs,” a track from the formerly out-of-print “Fan Club 45” and “Sniper Elite” and “Murder Goons” featuring the metal faced villain DOOM and Wu-Tang Clan swordsman Ghostface Killa on the respective tracks. According to Stones Throw, these songs were recorded in 2005 prior to Donuts hitting the shelves. 

If you want to cop this exclusive, eight-piece vinyl set, head over to Stones Throw right now to place your order.

IN HEALTH NEWS: Generic Lipitor Recalled 
Ranbaxy Laboratories Ltd. has recalled more than 40 lots of its generic version of the cholesterol-lowering drug Lipitor from the U.S. market after finding batches containing small glass particles. 

Ranbaxy, an Indian unit of Japan’s Daiichi Sankyo Co. said the voluntary action would cause a temporary supply disruption, but the company expects to complete an investigation of the matter within two weeks and resume shipments thereafter. 
The Food and Drug Administration said the recall could lead to a shortage of atorvastatin, the generic name for Lipitor. “We are doing everything we can to mitigate a shortage, including reaching out to other manufacturers,” said Sarah Clark-Lynn, an FDA spokeswoman. “We’re monitoring the situation.” 

The FDA said it wasn’t aware of any reports of injuries or deaths tied to the recalled product. 
Ranbaxy was one of the first companies to begin selling generic Lipitor a year ago, under the terms of a prior settlement of patent litigation with Pfizer Inc., which makes branded Lipitor. Pfizer’s U.S. market exclusivity for the blockbuster branded drug expired, clearing the way for low-price generic copies from multiple manufacturers. 

Pfizer also has lost exclusivity for Lipitor in other countries. Its branded Lipitor sales declined 56 percent to $3.36 billion for the first nine months of 2012. 
Ranbaxy’s generic Lipitor sales covered 44 percent of the U.S. market for the drug—including branded and generic product—as of October, said Ross Muken, an analyst at ISI Group LLC. Competitor Watson Pharmaceuticals Inc. will “most certainly” benefit from the recall, Mr. Muken said. Pfizer supplies Watson’s version of the drug. 

Ranbaxy said Friday it is conducting a retail-level recall of certain lots of 90- and 500-pill bottles of atorvastatin, in dosage strengths of 10 milligrams, 20 milligrams and 40 milligrams. The 80-milligram dosage isn’t part of the recall. The company said “select batches” may contain glass particles measuring less than one millimeter. Lot numbers and product details can be found at http://www.ranbaxyusa.com/images/a.pdf
