Earlier in March, Columbus Short of Scandal was involved in a bar fight at Gabe’s Bar & Grill LA after some negative comments were made about his wife, by another man. According to witnesses, Short punched the man in the face and continued to punch the man until he appeared dead. Short then fled the scene. Investigators are looking into criminal battery charges against the actor. I need Harrison to realize Scandal is just a script and Olivia Pope is not going to appear out of nowhere in a trench coat to fix this mess.
The back story is that Short and his wife, Tanee McCall-Short (also an actor), have been going through some marital issues. The couple filed for divorce back in September, but they’ve recently called off the divorce, and have decided to work things out. Although the man at the bar hasn’t been identified, we know from his comments that he had some connection to Short’s wife, Tanee. The two men got into a heated exchange, when the other guy said something to the effect:
I have read some funny headlines in my life time, but this rumor has got to be one of the funniest. According to Radar Online, Kim Kardashian admits she and Chris Brown once had a spark between them. Not even sure what that means, but now Radar is claiming that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have been fighting over this allege “spark”. Reportedly Kanye West is so jealous after learning about this “spark”, that he has threatened to call off the wedding. 0_0
Oh Kanye, I’m sure there are a lot of “sparks,” you don’t know about, yet. Check out the juicy details according to Radar below:
Rosie Perez must be the cutest pint size person in the world, and she hits up the Wendy Williams show to discuss her new tell-all-book of, Handbook for an Unpredictable Life: How I Survived Sister Renata and My Crazy Mother, and Still Came Out Smiling (with Great Hair). Rosie sits down with Wendy for a very personal interview where she shares a lot of information about her life and growing up in Brooklyn, dating Tupac, and her beef with Jennifer Lopez.
At the age of 3, Rosie Perez was in and out of foster care and grew up with a lot of anger issues as the ward of the Catholic church. She talks about throwing a chicken wing at Don Cornelius and trying to fight him on Soul Train, where she was a featured vixen dancer. Due to her crazy past of being shuffled from place to place, Rosie Perez was later diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and anger issues. She describes having a tick, a trigger that could set her off, and she also sends a shout-out to Chris Brown asking him to get help now, because she’s had the same diagnosis.
Good news for Matthew Knowles, not so good news for his son, Nixon, and terrible news for his baby-mama, Alexsandra Wright, who tried to take this private battle to the media; Matthew Knowles child support payments have been reduced. Matthew says his income has gone down considerably since his famous daughter fired him as her manager, and thus he doesn’t have the income to pay Alexsandra Wright the $12,000 per month he was initially ordered to pay by the courts. According to TMZ, Knowles claims to only have made $127,000 last year as oppose to $3 Million two years prior.
The judge must not like Alexsandra Wright, or believes Matthew Knowles is really broke because his child support payments are reduced to $2,485– From $12,000 to $2,485 a month! Alexsandra Wright should consider moving to Texas, where the dollars will stretch a lot further.
Baltimore Ravens’ running back, Ray Rice was reportedly in a fight with his fiancee, Janay Palmer, while at Revel Casino, in Atlantic City the day after Valentine’s Day. The two were arrested for misconduct which also included domestic violence– just shortly after the hotel footage (below). In the video Rice can be seen dragging Janay out of the elevator. Janay seems unable to move until she’s out of the elevator. Honestly, to me she looks inebriated, but TMZ is describing Janay as being out cold, as in she was knocked out.
Either way this video doesn’t really help anyone’s case. At this moment Ray Rice is not speaking to the media about the situation, and according to his lawyer Ray Rice is waiting for his day in court, if it comes to that.
For the past two weeks everyone has been going crazy and looking for the sign up sheet to go face to face with George Zimmerman in the boxing ring. Reportedly George Zimmerman wanted to personally fight Kanye West for whatever reason, and Kanye hadn’t responded as he shouldn’t. Nonetheless, other rappers who have been very vocal about wanting to jump in the ring with Zimmerman is rapper The Game. Recently he called into TMZ and told them that he had contacted celebrity boxing promoter Damon Feldman about jumping in the ring. Feldman responded by saying there were still a few others he had to consider, and it turns out that DMX was picked out of 15,000 applicants. DMX told TMZ:
I am going to beat the living f**k out him … I am breaking every rule in boxing to make sure I f**k him right up
Apparently Zimmerman has been training extremely hard, but we all know DMX’s past so he should be able to keep his word. The location and date of the fight will be announced next week at a press conference on February 12th.
