Trying to cash in now that the Mob Wives checks have stopped coming in? Sammy the Bull’s daughter alleges that the makers of Grand Theft Auto V based a character in the game on her without her permission. Former Mob Wives star Karen Gravano has filed a suit in the Manhattan Supreme Court for an astounding $40 million. According to the New York Daily News, Gravano believes that Rockstar Games created the character, Antonia Bottino, on her without her authorization. The character’s father, former Gambetti family underboss Sammy (Sonny) Bottino, became a snitch. In looking at the online synopsis for the mature-rated game, it states that Antonia and her family was forced to move from town to town to remain safe. In real life, Karen’s own father, Salvatore Gravano, better known as Sammy the Bull, was a Gambino underboss who snitched, helping to bring down famed mob boss John Gotti. Grand Theft Auto, which satires pop culture, history, and everything in-between, made an obvious reference to Karen as the character Antonia is not allowed to join a reality TV show called Wise B***hes

After last week’s announcement about the release, the Neptune affiliate shocks fans again by streaming the project guilt free via iTunes Radio. Skateboard P delivered a 10-song project that includes the mega hit “Happy,” which originally appeared on the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack in 2013. With that record leading the charge, the producer says this is far from a rap album unlike his 2006 solo debut In My Mind…

Robin Thicke Speaks For The First Time Following Divorce News

56th Annual GRAMMY Awards

On Monday everyone went into a bit of a state of shock when People released a statement from Paula Patton announcing that she and Robin Thicke would be getting divorced after being together some 20 years. Even if the split was somewhat expected — given the suspect behavior we’ve witnessed between Robin and other women lately — what wasn’t expected was the way in which it seems Robin’s been blind-sided. Rumor has it Paula announced the separation on her own and Robin rushed back to be by her side and talk their problems out, cancelling a few concerts along the way. Well now the singer has taken to his website to make his first statement since we heard this news.
