God always protect children and fools is how the old saying goes, so I guess we all shouldn’t be shocked that even though Chris Brown plead guilty to simple assault, he’s still a free man. Last time Chris Brown went to court for his Washington DC case, he rejected the plea deal,(Read: Chris Brown Rejects Plea Deal, Singer Will Go To Trial In September) rumors circulated all weekend that when Chris Brown returned to DC court on September 2nd, he would take a new plea deal that the District Attorney offered.
With Karrueche by his side Chris Brown plead guilty to one count of simple assault. After the guilty plea Chris Brown said “I’m Sorry” to the judge and the court and his lawyer said that Chris’ career was derailed for the last year and he would like to go back on tour. Prosecutors told the judge that Chris Brown admitted that he punched the victim with a fist and broke his nose.
The judge gave Chris Brown credit for the two days in DC lockup as time served, he will receive no probation and has to pay a DC court fee of $150.00.The judged said today (Sept. 2nd) in court “I feel he has suffered the consequences.” He was facing 180 days in jail if he would’ve went to trial.
Chris Brown is still under mandatory drug testing twice a week for LA probation and there is still a civil suit in this DC assault case pending.
Chris Brown’s bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy, who was found guilty back in April for assault, is still fighting for a new trial in this case, based on new evidence. When asked about the new evidence he said “Stay tuned, there’s more to come, I want to keep you busy for a few more weeks.”
You Beygency/BeyHive children do not play any games when it comes to Beyoncé and Blue Ivy. As we reported yesterday, Karrueche Tran was a guest co-host on BET’s 106 & Park on Monday and made a tasteless joke about Blue Ivy’s hair. (Read: BET Sets Karrueche Up By Having Her Insult Blue Ivy On 106 & Park) Well, Stephen G. Hill, President of music programming and specials at BET, also creator of 106 & Park took to his twitter account to clear any confusion on what happened on Monday night’s show and to issue a public apology to the Carter Family:
Last night on 106 & Park there was a stupid, unthoughtful joke made about a young child. We apologize publically to the child’s parents (and have done so privately) and we have taken punitive actions with those responsible. It was very bad judgment and we will serve you much better in the future. Oh and please don’t hate on Karrueche; it was NOT her fault. We also apologize to her for putting her in that position.
Karrueche (who has probably been crying her eyes out since her mentions have been taken over by Beygency and Beyhive members as well as shea butter twitter members.) took to her Instagram to formally apologize:
Past two days have been extremely draining. As I geared up for a big day for myself- hosting a live show.. I never expected things to turn out this way. I apologize to any and everyone who felt offended in any way by the comments made by BET executed through me.. I would never disrespect anyone’s child in any way and anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE Beyoncé. My comments have been in complete shambles.. yes I am human too and yes I do make mistakes.. But all this negativity and death wishes are quite a lot.. Definitely a lesson learned from here forth.. Again, on behalf of MYSELF, my sincerest apologies <3 #BeyHive Continue reading →
Football season is approaching and ESPN is full of preseason coverage. We all know that Michael Sam is the first openly gay player in the NFL, he was the 249th pick in this year Draft. While the story should be will Michaela Sam make the St. Louis Rams’ final roster, ESPN can’t really get over the fact that he’s a gay man working in the sport.
For some odd reason someone in the ESPN newsroom thought it would be a good idea to do a segment on Sam’s adjustment to St. Louis Rams. Josina Anderson reported from Earth City, Mo where the Rams are having training camp, before discussing Sam, she talked about various St. Louis Rams’ story and then went on to talk about how Sam is adjusting to the team. One of his teammates, Kendall Langford, said that Sam is “just one of the guys.”
For whatever reason after that Anderson decided to quote an “unnamed” Rams player discussing the same topic:
“Another Rams defensive player told me that ‘Sam is respecting our space’ and that, from his perspective, he seemed to think that Michael Sam is kind of waiting to take a shower, as not to make his teammates uncomfortable.”
Anderson shared other team memebers’ answer to her irrelevant question. Both Kendall Langford and Alec Ogletree informed the ESPN reporter they weren’t exactly tracking his shower habits.
AS. THEY. SHOULDN’T.
After backlash from sports fans and players alike (especially from Sam’s teammate Chris Long, he sent out a tweet saying Dear ESPN, Everyone but you is over it.) ESPN issued an apology for the segment in the following statement:
ESPN regrets the manner in which we presented our report…Clearly yesterday we collectively failed to meet the standards we have set in reporting on LGBT-related topics in sports.
Even though we have to wait until Monday to see how it unfolded, the most talked about reunion fight in VH1 history now has a lawsuit attached. As first reported by TMZ when they taped the Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta reunion a few weeks ago it suddenly turned into Joseline v. The World, as she initially started the fight with Althea, then ended up in separate battles with Mimi, Tammy and Ms. Deb Ms. Deb obviously defending her daughter-in-law.) Eventually, 911 was called and VH1 stopped filming for the day and rumors have been circulating that the whole cast has demanded that Mona fires Joseline.
The lawsuit was filed in Dekalb County on Tuesday and it alleges that Joseline and Stevie J “Instigated numerous public conflicts” against Benzino and began making threats of violence against Althea, including on social media. The night before the reunion Stevie J. posted a nude picture of Althea, in what looked like to be Althea in the mist of preforming oral sex. Althea jumped on twitter that same night and claimed that the pic was of her and Benzino. I’m still trying to figure out if that was the case, how did Stevie J. get it in the first place?
Althea also claims that Joseline was high on stage (well…duh) leading up to the fight on stage. Althea says that they were tons of witness who saw Joseline smoking crack/cocaine out of a pipe backstage at the reunion before filming.
Althea is suing Joseline for assault and battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress. The amount that she is suing for has not been disclosed. Althea IS NOT suing VH1 or Monami Entertainment, even though Benzino has publicly said her feels as if the fight was a setup, since he doesn’t understand how security could not tame Joseline.
Crackheads are strong… I’m just saying. *cues Momma Dee’s I Deserve
This is a new low for the internet, I know ya’ll steal other people’s pictures and claim that it is you for some dick a date, but stealing food pics to promote your business? That’s just ridiculous. While Sean Kingston is parking his cars at his grandma’s house so they won’t be snatched by the repo man, his momma is out here stealing pics from popular food bloggers to promote her Jamaican food truck. The real gag is the food pictures that she stole aren’t even pictures of Jamaican or West Indian food.
Janice Turner runs the Mamma Kingston Kitchen food truck around the Los Angeles area. According to her Instagram account she specialize in Jamaican home cooking with the traditional dishes such as oxtails, rice and peas and porridge, so imagine how surprised Angela Davis, chef, 2013 Food Shorty Awards winner and owner of kitchenistadiaries.com was when it was brought to her attention by one of her twitter followers that her food photos were being used on Mama Kingston’s food truck’s Instagram account to promote the business!

Now you know what!? The Beyhive has really pulled it with this one yall. Yesterday, we reported that BET and Karreuche Tran issued apologies for the comments made towards Blue Ivy on 106 and Park, and baybeh, not even 24 hours later, the show is on a “planned” hiatus, and there’s an online petition (Yes, a legit Whitehouse document) to have her deported or “sent into exile.”
Don’t believe me, trust me, I had to sit up for this one too. Check it out below.
Via Deport Karruche Tran:
“WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:
Deport Karrueche Tran if deportation is not available send her into exile.
Karrueche Tran violated the number one code of the BeyHive Law.
“Thou should never come for Blue Ivy!”
In a tasteless attempt on a national syndicated television show Ms. Tran made a diss towards America’s Princess of the Carter thrown.
And we the BeyAgency demand her deportation effective immediately.”
When I tell you I could barely make it through the entire thing without crying from laughter. Some of yall really have nothing better to do with your time. This girl just can’t win.
[I’d like to point out that Karrueche was born in Los Angeles. I’m not gonna lie though, this ish is hella funny.]
