Remy Ma Files Appeal In Her Shooting Conviction

Posted by Bossip Staff

Remy is trying to fight her conviction for busting shots into her close friend:

Attorneys for Remy Ma filed a motion in a Manhattan Court Room this week appealing the verdict handed down against the rapper in March of this year. In court documents, the lawyers argue that errors committed by the judge presiding over the 15 day trial may have lead to an inaccurate verdict. At issue specifically, were the judge’s instructions regarding the testimony of Remy’s victim, Makeda Smith-Barnes, who was shot by the rapper outside a New York City nightclub during an argument over $3000.  Fisher was barred by the court from arguing that the shooting in fact occurred during a struggle for the .45 caliber automatic handgun which, allegedly resulted in Smith-Barnes being shot in the abdomen at close range. In addition, Remy’s lawyers argue that by including a previous unrelated violent incident at the Player’s Club in the indictment of Remy Ma, Assistant District Attorney Michael McIntosh effectively managed to taint the jury, predisposing them to issue a guilty verdict. Remy, born Remy Smith, is currently serving an eight year prison term at the Bedford Hills Correctional facility, a maximum security prison just north of New York City. The rapper was convicted of first degree assault, criminal possession of a weapon and attempted coercion. She will be eligible for parole in September 2014.

Sounds like she is paying the lawyers to find reasons to release her…and saying the judge messed up is a crock of sh*t.

Skippin’ Out on the Tab

Posted by Bossip Staff

Usher’s mom is being investigated by one-time:

Police have launched an investigation looking into whether or not Usher’s mother and former manager, Jonnetta Patton, scammed a limo driver during the recent BET Awards.

A freelance limo driver says that Patton used his services for her Atlanta-based transportation company, but never paid him his $1,668 for services. He has since filed a complaint. According to TMZ, Patton’s camp is currently mum regarding the complaint and investigation. Dekalb County detectives are actively looking into the case.

Come on, Jonetta; you couldn’t afford to pay that little tab? We can only imagine that something must have happened to disrupt her monthly allowance from Usher. SMH

Question of the Day

Posted by Bossip Staff

Mike Vick, the 4.2 in the 40 yard dash QB, is coming back to the NFL…hopefully:

Imprisoned NFL quarterback Michael Vick expects to return to pro football, according to his bankruptcy attorneys who laid out a plan to pay creditors based in part on his anticipated earnings.”The Debtor has every reason to believe that upon his release, he will be reinstated into the NFL, resume his career and be able to earn a substantial living,” Vick’s attorneys wrote in a disclosure statement filed before a hearing Thursday in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Norfolk. The former Atlanta Falcons star is serving a 23-month sentence in a federal penitentiary for bankrolling a dogfighting ring in rural Virginia and is scheduled to be released on July 20. Once the NFL’s highest-paid player, Vick has assets of $16 million and liabilities of $20.4 million, according to the court filing in which attorneys wrote in extraordinary detail about Vick’s dizzying financial mess — listing a fleet of vehicles, properties, businesses and the extended family he supported. A Vick attorney said a committee representing all his debtors has proposed a plan to pay off his debt.  “The committee attorney acknowledged that there’s been a lot of progress, so we’re hopeful,” Peter R. Ginsberg told The Associated Press. Vick still faces two state felony counts — dogfighting and animal cruelty. They carry maximum prison terms of 10 years, but under a plea deal, Vick would serve a suspended sentence and a year of probation. He is scheduled to appear in Surry County Circuit Court on Nov. 25. While Vick still has a contract with the Falcons, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell would have the final say on his return, which he is counting on after he is released. “That’s the hope,” Campsen said in an interview.  Ginsberg said if the sides can’t agree in December, another hearing will be held in January. Vick was ordered to attend.

Vick has most certainly paid the ultimate price for what he did: he’s lost more than he even had to give, which is a lot more than others who have made mistakes.

Is it time to allow Michael Vick the opportunity to collect the scattered pieces of his existence and start making a new life for himself?

Snoop Blazed Out of His House

Posted by Bossip Staff

This is a picture of Snoop setting some dank on fire in Australia earlier this month and well, it looks like something else beside reefers is on fire now, according to Livesteez...his house:

The Southern California wildfires that threatened to destroy the Montecito home of Oprah Winfrey have also caused Snoop Dogg to evacuate his multi-million dollar home in Diamond Bar. The rapper, his family and his staff were among 26,000 residents forced to leave their homes on Sunday due to an uncontrollable blaze that has already destroyed 150 homes and threatens 3,500 more, reports E! Online. “My family had to be evacuated. It’s right in the area of where I live in, so I’m just praying for everybody, hopefully rain, and that firefighters get it done trying to bring an end,” the rapper tells E! News. Snoop’s home is located in The Country Estates, an exclusive, gated hillside community about 29 miles east of downtown Los Angeles in the San Gabriel Valley. As part of the “Triangle Complex” fire, the inferno has already scorched 10,000 acres and spans four counties: Orange, Los Angeles, San Bernardino and Riverside.

Snoop does not care, unless it torched his Chronic crop. On a side note, It is rumored that “The Gays” may have caused the Diamond Bar fire because of that prop 8 ordeal.

Don “Cortez” Cornelius Facing 5 yrs

Posted by Bossip Staff

According to Livesteez, The Don, at 72, was just popped for beating his chick’s @ss at his crib in Van Nuys, CA and is facing serious time:

Don Cornelius, former host of “Soul Train,” has been charged in connection with two domestic incidents involving his wife last month by the Los Angeles city attorney. Cornelius was charged with spousal battery, assault with a deadly weapon and dissuading a witness from making a police report, all misdemeanors, city attorney spokesman Frank Mateljan said Friday. The married 72-year-old producer was taken to jail last month after police were called to his Hollywood Hills home following a report of domestic dispute, The Assoicated Press is reporting. Cornelius was released on $50,000 bail. He could face up to one year in prison for each of the five misdemeanor charges.

The Don is stuck in a time when you would be able to hit that pipe all night, whoop some tail in a crack stuper, then wake up the next day like nothing happened. It’s a new day, so get it together, old man. SMH

Down for the Count

Posted by Bossip Staff

Big Suge Knight is going down for attacking his girl:

Hip-hop mogul Suge Knight has been slapped with multiple charges in the August beatdown of his girlfriend in Las Vegas, TMZ.com reported Sunday.

Knight, 43, faces two felony charges of possession of a controlled substance and one count of misdeameanor battery after the Aug. 27 attack in Sin City, the gossip Web site reported. Knight, the founder of Death Row records, began fighting with his girlfriend of three years, Melissa Isaac, as they drove away from a strip club, cops say.

Isaac jerked the wheel after Knight punched her, causing the Cadillcac Escalade to hit a curb, cops say. Isaac jumped out of the SUV and tried to run away but was chased down by the 6-foot-4 Knight. Responding cops spotted Knight wielding a knife as he kicked Isaac in the head, police say. Knight was in possession of the drugs Ecstasy and hydrocodone, police said. It wasn’t Knight’s first run-in with cops. He has served prison time on assault charges in the 1990s and early 2000s.

The fact that he only got charged with a misdemeanor for whipping the chick’s @ss and kicking her in the head is atrocious. With a monster of his size, it should be a felony just to step on someone’s shoe. SMH

Kanye Talks About His Arrest In England

Posted by Bossip Staff

Yeezy reveals what really happened in England on his blog:

HERE’S WHAT HAPPENED…WHEN I LEFT THE CLUB, I WAS ENCOUNTERED BY A THIRSTY PAPARAZZI AS USUAL. HE FELT HE HAD MORE RIGHTS TO MY SPACE THAN ME, SO I PUT MY HAND UP TO PREVENT HIM FROM TAKING MY IMAGE. I DIDN’T ASSAULT HIM BUT MERELY PUTTING MY HAND UP TO COVER HIS LENS. MY SECURITY YELLED, “GET THE CAMERA OFF HIM.” I GUESS IN ALL THE COMMOTION THE CAMERA SCRAPED HIS NOSE.

THREE HOURS LATER I GET A KNOCK AT MY HOTEL DOOR. THERE WERE FIVE POLICE OFFICERS IN FRONT OF MY ROOM AND I HAD NO IDEA WHY. I HAD MY SECURITY GO SPEAK WITH THEM. THE COPS WERE VERY CORDIAL BUT TOLD ME THEY HAD TO ARREST ME BECAUSE A COMPLAINT WAS FILED. THAT WAS THE BOGUS PART. THEY PLACED ME IN HANDCUFFS AND DROVE ME TO THE STATION. THEY SPOKE ABOUT HOW THIS WAS OBVIOUSLY A PUBLICITY STUNT BY THE PHOTOGRAPHER BUT THEY STILL HAD TO GO THOUGH THE MOTIONS. WHEN I GOT BACK TO THE HOTEL THERE WERE PAPARAZZI HANGING OVER THE BRIDGE ABOVE THE HOTEL TRYING TO GET A SHOT OF ME GETTING OUT THE POLICE VAN. EVEN THOUGH I WASN’T CHARGED, THE DAMAGE WAS DONE. SURE ENOUGH THE NEXT MORNING, PLASTERED ACROSS EVERY MEDIA OUTLET… KANYE GETS ARRESTED. IT DIDN’T MATTER THAT I WASN’T CHARGED OR THE FACT THAT I HADN’T ASSAULTED ANYONE. ALL THAT MATTERED WAS THAT I WAS ARRESTED.

No doubt, the Paps are thirsty as hell, but I think we’d all agree that he has had enough time in the spotlight to realize that and to start dealing with it another way.

Was Yeezy acting like a lil’ broad, or was he justified for going at the Paps…again?

Katt Williams Admitted to Mental Institution

Posted by Bossip Staff

Katt Williams has that blank stare for a reason:

Actor and comedian Katt Williams, of movies “First Sunday” and “Norbit” fame, apparently has made a stop in Sumter. Unfortunately it was not for one of his stand-up comedy routines but rather a visit with family members that allegedly ended with a psychiatric evaluation at Tuomey Regional Medical Center. On Friday, he turned up in Sumter and allegedly underwent a mental health evaluation for a possible hospital commitment, at the urging of local family members. This was after run-ins with both city and county law enforcement. Sumter Police Department Maj. Perry Herod said officers responded to a call in reference to suspicious behavior by Williams, 35, on Friday morning at the Mount Vernon Inn.

Hudson Family Update

Posted by Bossip Staff

William Balfour is set to released on the 23rd of this month, and his new girl is saying he told her he was involved:

William Balfour, the only individual to be identified as a “person of interest” in the shootings of Jennifer Hudson’s mother and brother, allegedly told his girlfriend he was involved in the murders, sources told the Chicago Tribune. However, Balfour’s girlfriend reportedly told police that he was not involved in the death of Hudson’s 7-year-old nephew, Julian King. Julian, the son of Jennifer’s sister (and Balfour’s estranged wife) Julia, went missing around the time of the shootings. His body was later discovered in an SUV on the South Side of Chicago. Law enforcement officials reportedly told the Tribune that Balfour allegedly stated that he was at the Hudsons’ home the morning of the murders. Darnell Donerson and Jason Hudson, the mother and brother of Oscar winner Jennifer, were found dead on the afternoon of Oct. 24 in their home on the South Side of Chicago. Balfour had been on parole since his 2006 release from prison after a 1999 conviction for attempted murder until he was reportedly taken into police custody at around 6 PM on the day of the murders. He has not been charged in the case, though he was reportedly returned to prison on a parole violation after being held for 48 hours.The day of the murders, he reportedly missed a meeting with his parole officer and told him that he was “babysitting on the West Side,” according to the Associated Press. The Tribune reported that upon his arrest, he answered officers’ questions until offered a lie-detector test, which he refused to take. Balfour is scheduled to have a hearing before the Illinois Prisoner Review Board at 9 AM on Monday, at which time he could be set free or held for further hearings should the board find probable cause that he has violated his parole or committed a crime.

This story just seems to get more and more bizarre by the day. The Police really need to get on their job here and bring Balfour’s chick in for questioning if it is within the law to do so. As the many different layers to this story continue to unravel, we will be sure to keep you posted.

Premeditated Murder… By an 8yr Old???

Posted by Bossip Staff

An 8 year old boy in Arizona smoked his dad and another man:

A man who police believe was shot and killed by his 8-year-old son had consulted a Roman Catholic priest about whether the boy should handle guns and had taught him how to use them, the clergyman said Saturday. The father, Vincent Romero, 29, was from a family of avid hunters and wanted to make sure the boy wasn’t afraid of guns and knew how to handle them, said the Very Rev. John Paul Sauter of St. Johns Catholic Church. The boy’s stepmother had suggested he have a BB gun, the priest said. Romero taught his son how to use a rifle to kill prairie dogs, Sauter said. Police say the boy used a 22.-caliber rifle Wednesday to kill his father and another man, Timothy Romans, 39, of San Carlos. The priest did not say how he advised the couple or whether they decided to buy him a gun but said Saturday that the boy “was just too young.” “That child, I don’t think he knows what he did, and it was brutal,” said Sauter, who presided at the wedding of the father and stepmother.

Would-be Assassins Indicted

Posted by Bossip Staff

Certified b*tch here, Danny, is being indicted for the assassination plot on Obama and other unsuccessful horrendous crimes the shaved chimp could not complete:

A federal grand jury in Memphis, has indicted two white supremacists accused of plotting to kill Democrat Barack Obama and dozens of other black people. Twenty-year-old Daniel Cowart and 18-year-old Paul Schlesselman were arrested last month, before Obama won the presidential election. They are being held without bond. They were indicted Wednesday on charges of possessing a sawed-off shotgun, planning to rob a licensed gun dealer and threatening a presidential candidate. Authorities say they plotted a killing spree that would end with them attacking Obama while dressed in white tuxedoes and top hats. Cowart’s lawyer said he had no comment. A message left for Schlesselman’s lawyer was not immediately returned.

We hope he is placed in a cell with a huge black convict, that was given a frightening name like, The Booty Bandit, Nazi Sphincter Killer or, Pink Hole Ripper.

Mos Def-Initely Wanted by Vegas One-Time

Posted by Bossip Staff

According to Livesteez, Mos took the Kanye route to boost sales for his up and coming album, by allegedly pushing a wimpy pap person down:

Brooklyn rapper/actor Mos Def woke up this morning anticipating going to jail after the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department has issued a warrant for his arrest on yesterday evening (November 5). Mos, born Dante Smith, was allegedly involved in an altercation with a professional photographer at the most recent Men’s Apparel and Garment Industry (MAGIC) showing in August. While attending an event during the fashion trade convention, photographer Volker Corell claims the Be Kind Rewind star assaulted him, allegedly ripping away his camera, and throwing the equipment to the ground before walking away with it, as reported by AllHipHop.com. Corell, who was an official photographer for the MAGIC convention says he suffered a cut on his left hand as a result of the confrontation. Mos, who made an appearance at Vegas nightclub Prive on October 20, now faces charges of felony robbery and malicious destruction of property.

We all know that most pap’s are chocha’s. If one gets a small cut on his pinky, he’ll likely do the most un-manly, booty hole thing he could and file charges. Let this be a lesson to all the paps who stick their cameras up celebrities’ noses. Why do you think you have a zoom lens on that $1000 camera?

William Balfour May Have Had Help

Posted by Bossip Staff

This deranged looking felon doesn’t have many friends, but cops are still trying to figure out if it was indeed him and whether or not someone assisted him in these heinous killings:

Although Chicago police have only one known suspect in the slayings of three relatives of actress Jennifer Hudson, some evidence suggests that more than one person may have been involved, law-enforcement sources said today. Investigators have focused on suspect William Balfour’s movements on Friday, the day of the murders, as well as his conflicts with his estranged wife, Julia Hudson, and other members of the family. They are trying to determine whether another person drove Balfour to the West Side after the killings at the Hudsons’ South Side home, sources said. Witnesses said Balfour drove his teal Chrysler to the Hudsons’ block Friday, arriving about 7 a.m. But later the vehicle was discovered by police parked about a mile away outside Robeson High School. Balfour’s girlfriend told police that he was at her West Side home not long after the slayings of Hudson’s mother, Darnell Donerson, and the Oscar-winning actress’ brother, Jason, at their Englewood home, sources said. Security video at the South Side high school showed someone parking the Chrysler on Friday, but investigators have not been able to determine the person’s identity from the images, the sources said. A time stamp on the video showed the car was left there at 12:30 p.m. Friday, but it was unclear whether the stamp was accurate, sources said. Meanwhile, cell phone records placed Balfour on the West Side at that hour, sources said. If the time stamp is accurate, it would suggest another person may have driven the Chrysler from the Hudson home to Robeson, sources said. In any event, Balfour did not use his own car to travel from the Hudson’s Englewood house to his girlfriend’s home near 19th Street and Spaulding Avenue on the West Side, police said.

Convincing someone to help murder a child is unreal. Who ever did this should be boiled alive.
