When The Checks Stop Coming In

Bossip is hearing rumors that Ruben Studdard was dropped from J Records. His last album, The Return, was released in 2006 and sold approximately 235,000 copies. It’s a shame that America supports Gay Clay Aiken more than the actual winner of American Idol Season 2.

Jacko may be forced to tour this spring to help pay-off a defaulted $300 million loan. Some of the problems with the planned tour are insurance companies considering his reliability suspect and him being out of shape.

Come on Michael, find what Blackness you have left and make it rain on them hoes with a comeback.

In other news, the International Olympic Committee formally stripped Marion Jones of her five Olympic medals Wednesday. The former champion has admitted to being roided up while winning her medals.

Scott Storch Beanie Sigel

They’re not quite at this status yet, but Scott Storch and Beanie Sigel are having some money issues.

Storch who was once worth $70 million dollars and now listed at $17 million, had all his credit cards declined at a night club in Miami recently. Beanie Sigel who had trouble paying for a little Nissan rent-a-car back in October, also had trouble getting his Maserati out of a Philly impound. A friend had to pay $1700 to get Beanie’s car out after it was booted and towed a month ago. The car was about to be auctioned off.

There’s clearly something wrong when you have a Maserati, but yet you cannot cough up $1700. SMH.

Gary Coleman Saturn for Sale

Gary Coleman is the official poster child for When the Checks Stop Coming In. Here he is in his little green crocs selling his Saturn and autographed pictures on ebay.

Guess he didn’t make enough selling that autographed Game Cube last month. Poor thang.

Ginuwine hasn’t had an album drop in a while but he is ok, the former stripper is doing bachelorette parties now. By the look of these two women, they don’t seem to be paying much.

It’s tough t stay in this music game. Poor thang.

The leaders of the Black Mafia Family, Terry Flenory, 37, and Demetrius Flenory (AKA Big Meech), 39 both pleaded guilty last week for operating a continuing criminal enterprise and conspiring to launder money. They could face up to 30 years in prison. The brothers agreed to turn over over $270 million in drug proceeds.

If you don’t know about BMF, they had the drug game on lock before they started making rap videos and DVD’s about their lifestyle. Continue »

Marion Jones

The future is not looking bright for former track star Marion Jones:

The world governing body of athletics has handed disgraced sprinter Marion Jones a two-year ban for doping and annulled all her results dating back to September 2000, including her Olympic and world championship titles. The International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF) also told Jones to return an estimated $700,000 in prize money and recommended that her United States relay teammates be disqualified and lose their medals from the 2000 Sydney Olympics. Jones retired last month after pleading guilty to lying to federal investigators in 2003 and admitted that she had taken the designer steroid “the clear” from September 2000 to July 2001. Jones won gold medals in the 100 meters, 200 and the 1,600-meter relay in Sydney, as well as bronzes in the 400 relay and long jump. She won the 200 world title in 2001. Jones has returned her five Olympic medals and agreed to forfeit all results dating to Sept. 1, 2000. IAAF spokesman Nick Davies said Jones can’t compete again unless she pays back the approximate $700,000 in prize money. Even though Jones has retired, she is officially suspended until Oct. 7, 2009. Jones would have to give the IAAF 12 months’ notice if she wants to return to competition after the ban, Davies said.

700K in payback dollars might not be that easy to come up with, especially since those Nike checks stopped coming in a while ago.

Kelly Rowland Tickets

Kelly Rowland tickets for her performance November 23rd at the House of Blues in Atlantic City are complimentary. Of course there is some special Ticketmaster gobble up turkey promotion going on, but damn, Kelly, Clay Aiken tickets are being auctioned off starting at 80 bucks a pop, and his ass didn’t even win American Idol. SMH.

This is just a clear sign that Kelly start dabbling into other arenas careerwise. Countdown time to “When the Checks Stop Coming In”.

Rumors are going around that K-CI was booed at the Apollo Theatre for getting too freaky in front of the kids in the audience. The homie Illseed over at AHH reports:

K-Ci started to sing but the brothers’ suggestive actions were inappropriate for the little children in the audience. He allegedly started to grope himself in a sexual manner so my boy Castle started booing K-Ci as loud as he could! The whole crowd followed suit! On top of it all, K-Ci decides it’s a good idea to take off his shirt. Somebody else told me he looked like he was “starving for a Nutriment or some type of supplement drink.”

This could have easily been a Jesus Take The Wheel. Hopefully, this behavior doesn’t have anything to do with rocks. Some throwback Jodeci under the hood Continue »

Gary Coleman

Ashy Larry Gary Coleman should be ashamed of himself. It’s one thing to be selling self-signed copies of Game Cube (not even Play Station) but does it make any sense whatsoever for that nicca’s hands to look like that? He can’t be serious. He really let someone take his picture knowing his hands looked like that. Poor thang.

Usually when this happens, we sniff a reality show coming, but in this case that has already been done. Usher’s ex and the C of TLC, Chilli has started a new business designing bags. But it’s not your average handbag, it’s a bag with a big ass picture on it.

We’re not knocking her entrepreneur game, but those bags look wack as hell.

Get yourself a reality show. The next player in the reality TV game is washed up “rapper” Coolio. The show “Coolio & the Gang” will be a real life “My Three Sons” featured on the Oxygen network in 2008. “Coolio is a single dad raising kids, and it’s got a lot of unconventional parenting aspects to it. He wants his kids to do as he says, not as he does.”

That’s good advice Coolio, make sure you tell your kids not to cut holes out of the top of hats and pull braids through. Matter fact, tell your kids that being 40 something with braids is not cool at all.

Here is Jaleel White recently putting down some of that Urkel game on some white girls in Vegas. He is probably missing those Family Matters checks. These hoes don’t seem to care. This is probably the best it’s going to get for Urkel, some of that trailer park tail. Poor thang.

According to some reports, Kelly Rowland has canceled several planned concerts and is not giving out refunds to her dwindling fans.

Damn, Matthew Knowles should have done her right by hooking her up with a post-Destiny Child insurance plan. Poor thang.

In other DS (downward spiral) news, Superhead’s cum in the face tales are not moving the numbers of her first book. It’s been dropping fast on the book charts. It is speculated it will continue to drop down the charts from here.

What do you think the desperate groupie will do next?

Hopefully no one else buys her book, and she will start focusing on her son.

OJ’s friends have jumped on the snitchin campaign and he could face life in prison if convicted on his kidnapping charges.

Via NY Daily News:

It was double-barreled bad news for O.J. Simpson yesterday as two members of his alleged armed robbery posse struck deals with prosecutors to testify against him. Golfing buddy Walter Alexander, 46, agreed to plead guilty to conspiracy in exchange for his testimony about the Juice’s role in a wild memorabilia heist at a Las Vegas hotel Sept. 13. Co-defendant Charles Cashmore also agreed to testify that guns were “brandished” during the confrontation for a single felony charge of “accessory to robbery.” Prosecutors now have the one-two punch they wanted: witnesses placing two guns at the scene and a Simpson pal admitting the plan was hatched in advance.
