Chris Brown Chris Brown

Things are getting better for Chris Brown.  The singer together with his girlfriend Karrueche was spotted yesterday attending a hearing.  The hearing was about the motion filed by Los Angeles Deputy District Attorney Mary Murray for the alleged brawl which occurred in D.C. last year.  According to the district attorney, Chris violated his probation and at the same time she also included his violent explosion against his mom.  She wrote:

“He continues to pose an increasingly violent danger to society. Defendant Brown’s violent behavior continues to increase in severity and frequency.”

Chris was lucky that Judge Brandlin repudiated the motion explaining that Chris showed good behavior and demonstrated some progress when he started entering in the anger management rehab.  According to the singer’s attorney, Mark Geragos:

“I say keep things on a short leash. Keep him where he is now. He is making great strides and all you have to do is look at him, and I’ve known him for five years. He’s as good as he’s ever been.”

What are your thoughts on Chris’ hearing?

The petition reads:

“We the people of the United States feel that we are being wrongly represented in the world of pop culture. We would like to see the dangerous, reckless, destructive, and drug abusing, Justin Bieber deported and his green card revoked. He is not only threatening the safety of our people but he is also a terrible influence on our nations youth. We the people would like to remove Justin Bieber from our society.”

As of the moment, it has about 700 signatures.  By next month, it should be able to generate an additional of 99K signatures.  After posting a bail of $2,500, the singer was released from jail.

Kim and Kanye Kim and Kanye

Kim and Kanye started the year 2014 by heading back to the headlines once again.  According to reports, Kanye allegedly punched an 18-year old guy because he called her fiancé a “n*gger lover.”  The incident occurred inside a medical building in Beverly Hills.  The details of the event are quite dramatic.  According to TMZ:

“Kim was at a Beverly Hills medical building when she was swarmed by photogs. We’re told the guy allegedly tried to help Kim get in the building, as he started screaming, “F**k these fa**ot-ass n****rs”” — referring to the paparazzi. Kim then told him it was not appropriate to use the N-word. We’re told he then screamed at her, “F**k you bitch. Just trying to help you. Shut up n****r lover, stupid slut.””

“Apparently that got Kim hot as fish grease … she watched the guy walk into an office. As they were walking we’re told the guy continued berating Kim. She dialed Kanye on his cell, and when the guy realized Kanye was on the phone he allegedly said, “F**k you N****r.” Kanye — who had just arrived at the building — then met up with Kim.”

“Sources say Kanye and Kim rushed into the waiting room of chiropractor Richard Hill and found the 18-year-old sitting there. Witnesses say Kanye punched the guy and Kim screamed, “We have it all on tape.””

“Sources say the massage therapist in the office separated the 2 men. Beverly Hills cops were called and the 18-year-old said he wanted to press charges.”

Toya-Wright

Toya Wright was having a bad day after she was arrested on the day that her husband celebrated his birthday.  She was arrested in Atlanta due to parking tickets.  According to reports, she was driving down the College Park when she was suddenly being pulled up because of speeding.  The office took her into custody after finding out that she had a warrant of arrest.

On her Instagram, she wrote:

“Wow!!! It’s true I was jailed due to a old ticket that I thought I had taken care of but it was not. I try my best to take care of that sort of thing quickly but some how the ticket slipped through the cracks. I spent a day in jail and I must say that this experience was one of the most devastating of my life. I wouldn’t wish jail time for my worse enemy. Everyone that gets locked up isn’t a danger to the community. Many people that are in jail are just like me for a ticket that was either forgotten or thought to be taken care of. But the way most are treated is inhumane. I never thought in a million years that the kind of things I’ve witnessed went on. The situation was so bad that I don’t even want to leave out the house. After my ordeal I am seriously contemplating being an advocate of better treatment for prisoners. Please believe I’m working on my lightening up my lead foot and if I do mess up and get another ticket, that day it will be taken care of.”

“After being transported from one jail to another for a freaking traffic ticket. I met some cool and helpful cops at College park Jail. Thank you guys for being so sweet and helpful to me……What a way to celebrate my hubby’s bday.”

She also posted a special message to her husband, Memphitz, before she was arrested:

“Happy Birthday to a person that is not only my husband, but my best friend too….to the best husband in the world. I feel so blessed to have found true love in your arms. I feel so proud to call you my husband. May you be blessed with all that you have ever dreamt of today and always. I love you @billiondollarboybizz#mysag #love #TheWrights”

Isn’t it an awful day?

Nash and Menrathgot divorced in 2011 and now they are fighting for the custody of their children.  Most people are not aware that aside from being a referee, Hochuli is also a great lawyer.  When he was asked to compare between his two jobs, Hochulirevealed:

Ed-Hochuli

“I’m a trial lawyer by trade.  A trial is nothing, pressure-wise, compared to the NFL. … I have that long (he snaps his fingers) to make a decision with a million people watching and second-guessing (by video) in slow-motion. You’ve got to be right or wrong. I love the satisfaction when you are right — and the agony when you are wrong.”

 bob dylan2

Bob Dylan, the legendary singer-songwriter, was not aware that his racial comments can lead to a lawsuit in France.  It all started when Dylan was comparing Croats to Nazis as well as slave owners during his interview with the French Rolling Stone.

The Council of Croats in France filed the lawsuit against Dylan.  Back in 2012, Dylan was asked about how America had developed after the slavery and the Civil War.  The singer answered:

“This country is just too f—ed up about color. It’s a distraction. People at each others’ throats just because they are of a different color. It’s the height of insanity, and it will hold any nation back — or any neighborhood back. Or any anything back.”

bob dylan

He further added:

“Blacks know that some whites didn’t want to give up slavery — that if they had their way, they would still be under the yoke, and they can’t pretend they don’t know that. If you got a slave master or Klan in your blood, blacks can sense that. That stuff lingers to this day. Just like Jews can sense Nazi blood and the Serbs can sense Croatian blood.”

What can you say about Dylan’s comments?

Deion Sanders Deion Sanders

Former NFL player Deion Sanders is recently involved in a fighting incident.  This incident does not involve his ex-wife, Pilar but with an employee who worked in Prime Prep Academy.  The police officers are still investigating about the fight that occurred last Wednesday.  According to reports, Deion was allegedly assaulting Kevin Jefferson, the employee from Prime Prep.  The employee narrated:

“He walked back to the back of the classroom to where I was sitting in a desk. As he got closer to me, I stood up because he was kind of standing over me and he just kind of kept talking to me and at me and then he just grabbed me by my throat and kind of threw me to the ground. Some people had to get him off of me. I’m going to pursue my options with my attorney. I just think it’s unacceptable in a professional environment particularly at a school for that kind of behavior to go on.”

Jefferson also obtained some tests from a hospital afterwards he let the police know about the incident.  On the other hand, Deion denied the allegation of the employee and tweeted:

“Its alot of ignorance & lies circulating in DFW right now. Please know I stand for kids,teachers & Parents whom trusted me with their child. I won’t sit&witness my PrimePrep kids receive 2nds when they deserve the BEST EDUCATION!There was NO assault but a definite confrontation. The Person claiming assault is a fake administrator whom does absolutely nothing to help the school,kids or teachers reach our goals. Truth..Parents,Kids,Teachers and whomever a few times in life you will have to take a stand for whats RIGHT! Truth”

He further added:

“All Media please ask ANY Student or Teacher at PrimePrep Dallas campus grades 6-12 who I am and what im about! Then report that Live. Truth”

Recently, actress Stacey Dash attacked President Obama over several issues.  During her appearance on “Hannity with Sean Hannity”, Stacey revealed her thoughts about the lawsuit of the Obama Administration against the state of Louisiana with regards to the school voucher system.  She said:

“I’m saying, deny a child education because of the color of their skin? That’s absurd. You know, the natural evolution of a well-educated populous is integration. And this is not political, it’s not theoretical, it’s not even partisan.”

“It’s personal. You know, I was one of those children. I went to a failing school, and by the grace of God, my mother was able to put me into private school, and had she not, I would probably be in a gang or dead right now, because that was the road I was going down. So what they’re doing is immoral.”

According to Stacey, she chose to vote for President Obama due to his race.  She said:

“I didn’t know anything about [Obama] when I voted for him in 2008. My choice to do so was purely because he was black….Naively, I thought he would be the right person for the job but unfortunately it didn’t turn out that way. Obama had the opportunity to really unite this country in such a profound way, but instead he has done the opposite. We are so divided right now, everything has become about race, more than I’ve ever known in my lifetime.”
