Ving Rhames Defends His Dogs

Posted by Bossip Staff


Actor Ving Rhames is finally speaking out in defense of his dogs whom were accused of mauling his caretaker to death last month. The autopsy revealed that the dog bites on the victim, actor and screenwriter Jacob Adams, were superficial and he may have died from heart failure.

“I was out of the country when this shocking and terrible tragedy occurred on my property. Jacob Adams was not just a devoted employee, he was also a dear friend. I want to offer my heartfelt condolences to his family. I am relieved to know that the coroner’s report confirmed that my dogs were not the cause of his death—and that any wounds found on his body were superficial.

I would appreciate the media’s privacy for me and my family during this difficult time.”

Now that the dogs have been cleared, Animal Services will probably return the 200 pounds dogs back to Rhames. I’m sure the wifey will probably want to settle for a poodle.


More Dog-Gate

Ving Rhames’ dogs attacked his assistant and killed him today. The assistant (identified as a Black male) was looking after four dogs at the crib before the pack of dogs just went crazy and bodied him.

Michael Vick probably wishes he had those attack dogs on his team to fight for him.

Three years ago, Remy Ma talked about her gangsta:

At the end of the day, I’m a girl,” she said. “It’s not like I roll up and shoot up everybody.”

New York Daily News talked to friends of Remy Ma:

Friends of the rapper and the victim were surprised by the gunplay, saying the women were close. They chatted by phone before going to the Meatpacking District, even consulting on outfits, pals said.

Remy Ma’s lawyer is denying she dumped on anyone. Initial reports have the victim ganking 2K from Remy’s purse and Remy coming back dumping.

Former Mayor Caught Ridin’ Dirty

Posted by Bossip Staff


If you don’t know who Sharpe-motherfu*kin James is, don’t worry about it. He is just one of the most colorful politicians on the east coast. Well, old man Sharpe was just indicted on federal fraud charges:

A federal grand jury indicted former Newark Mayor Sharpe James Thursday on corruption charges. James, 71, was charged with using city-issued credit cards to spend extravagantly on himself, eight women and others during vacations and trips to locations such as Puerto Rico, Martha’s Vineyard, the Dominican Republic, and Rio de Janeiro, U.S. Attorney Christopher J. Christie and state Attorney General Anne Milgram announced. In the 33-count indictment, James is also charged with fraud for allegedly facilitating and approving the cut-rate sales of city-owned land to Tamika Riley, one of his female companions.

Riley allegedly collected hundreds of thousands of dollars from the land sales and is also charged with fraud, authorities said. James was expected to turn himself in to the FBI and appear with Riley in federal court Thursday afternoon.

You know you can’t trust a man who comes to city hall with a suspect box of signatures, a straw hat, a tank top, some locs (dark glasses), and then rides a bike inside the building.

Eve Sentenced to Three Years’ Probation

Posted by Bossip Staff


ET Online is reporting that Eve was sentenced to three years probation and ordered to wear an electronic alcohol-monitoring anklet after pleading no contest today to one misdemeanor count of driving with a blood alcohol level of .08 or above. According to Entertainment Tonight, the sentence includes 36 months’ probation and 45 days of alcohol monitoring on SCRAM — a Secure Continuous Remote Alcohol Monitoring program — an ankle bracelet that automatically tests for alcohol consumption every hour, 24 hours a day.

This sentence sounds a little harsh but then again, Moesha just killed someone with her car. Maybe if Eve was coked up, drunk, and ran away from the scene she could have copped a get out of jail free card like Lindsay Lohan.

Kid Identified, Parents Want Akon’s Money

Posted by Bossip Staff


The kid who Akon body-slammed into a concert crowd was identified by one-time yesterday and Akon is likely to face criminal and civil charges. The kid landed on a couple teens in the crowd and their parents just hired some lawyers to shake Akon down for some free money.

It’s funny how right before this all happened Akon was telling the crowd he didn’t know anything about American culture when he first arrived. Well Akon, when you look like Venom and have a lot of money, you don’t go around body-slamming “suburban kids” at concerts, especially after getting caught freaking a 14 year-old girl like it was your last day of freedom before doing a 20-year prison bid.

SMH at the parents pulling out their “Ezel” and trying to get paid.

Akon is back in the news again after body-slamming a kid into the crowd at one of his concerts. Detective. Lt. John Berlingieri of the Fishkill Police said talks have been held within the department regarding the possibility of questioning Akon about the incident, which occurred during Fishkill-based WSPK (104.7 FM)’s annual KFEST concert at Dutchess Stadium:

“We’re trying to identify that kid, just to find out whether or not we have any kind of criminal offense,” Berlingieri said. “We are looking to speak to him. No victim. No crime.”

Well, by the look of this picture, identifying Akon may be a problem too. Is that Venom, the evil Spiderman in that picture? They will probably Continue »

Posted by Bossip Staff


Via TMZ:

Rapper The Game has been charged with making a criminal threat and with possession of a firearm in a school zone during a Feb. 24 pickup basketball game, according to the L.A. District Attorney’s office. The rapper, whose real name is Jayceon Terrell Taylor, allegedly got into an altercation with a player on an opposing team during a basketball game at the Rita Walters Educational Learning Complex in South Los Angeles. After allegedly punching the victim, cops say The Game pulled a gun from his red Escalade and threatened to pop the victim.

Just last month, LAPD arrested The Game at his Glendale home, after police executed a search warrant. He was released on $50,000 bail. If convicted, The Game is facing more than five years in state prison.

Some people don’t like their freedom and counting their stacks. You’re famous, rich, and from Compton…now go sit your punk-ass down and stay out of trouble. SMH.

Alicia Keys is Dangerous

Posted by Bossip Staff

Via MTV News:

Jay-Z, Diddy, LL Cool and Alicia Keys were named in New York Police Department intelligence documentation released Wednesday, revealing that the NYPD monitored various activists, bloggers and politicians in the months leading up to the 2004 Republican National Convention. The musicians were listed in the 600-page report as those expected to attend a rally held by Russell Simmons’ Hip-Hop Summit Action Network. The paperwork was released after a federal judge ruled in favor of a motion to declassify the documents, filed by the New York Civil Liberties Union and The New York Times. …

What is Alicia Keyes going to do, play the piano against the Republicans and start a riot? I can see why the NYPD wanted this sh*t sealed. They would find more criminal activity in a Lindsay Lohan or Britney Spears purse.
