Looks like Brandy’s little brother has gotten himself in some hot water. R& B singer and actor Ray J has been charged with several misdemeanors. In May of this year, Ray J was at a bar in the Beverly Wilshire Hotel where he was turning it up in true rock star fashion. During the course of the night, Ray J became a little rowdy and brushed up against a female patron at the bar. The police were called, and Ray J totally lost it.
Arresting the singer didn’t stop his rampage; instead while inside the police car Ray J was seen kicking out the back window. Ray told TMZ that he kicked out the window due to him being claustrophobic. Well, kicking out the window forced the officers to put Ray in restraints, and while doing so, Ray spit on one of the officers. On July 21st, the L. A. county District Attorney charged Ray J with 4 counts of resisting arrest. According to TMZ, the singer was also charged with sexual battery even though the police that were present said that no such crime was committed due to the singer’s actions not being intentional. The singer was also charged with assault, battery, and vandalism which were also misdemeanors.

It appears that this is the year of the biopic. So far biopics are in the works for Jimmy Hendrix, Whitney Houston, Aaliyah, and Richard Pryor. Oh and I can’t forget to mention the recently released biopic of James Brown. Now it appears that Iron Mike Tyson wants to jump in the biography film ring as well. Tyson has already had his life story told when he performed in his one-man show entitled Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth, which was directed by Spike Lee.
Now Tyson has decided that he wants a full-fledged film about his life, and according to Vibe, Mike has already discussed the venture with Jamie Foxx. Tyson feels that Jamie would be the perfect person to portray him in the film.
“Me and Jamie Foxx have been talking and he’s willing to take that role and portray me as Mike Tyson, doing my life story…I think he’s splendid because he’s really up to par. I think he would do a magnificent job…he doesn’t have the physicality, but he will. He’s able to […] get bulky, so he’s capable of doing it in the future.”
Jamie Foxx is no stranger to the biopic world and has already portrayed musician Nathaniel Ayers, gang leader Tookie Williams, and musician Ray Charles. There is no word yet as to who will direct the film or when it will begin production.
Former Fugees member, Lauryn Hill, has had some major obstacles throughout her career. This 8 time Grammy winner has had to deal with being evicted from her home, and serving a 3 month prison sentence for tax evasion. Since being released from prison, Lauryn has been performing around the country. Unfortunately, she has also developed a bad reputation by showing up late to performances and not giving a stellar performance.
Recently, Ms. Hill was set to perform at the House of Blues in Chicago where she graced the stage 50 minutes after she was scheduled to perform. It was reported that Lauryn’s opening song was not very good which promoted a man in the audience to express his disgust. According to Essence, the fan called out Ms. Hill’s name and proceeded to make an obscene gesture. This caused L Boogie to scold the heckling fan publicly by saying,
“When I get up on this stage, don’t be disrespectful. You could go…if a little patience is too much. It’s alright…you could go. I would prefer that. You not ‘gon mess up my vibe for the rest of these people. You not ‘gon do that.”
After humiliating the fan, Lauryn decided that wasn’t enough and taught the rude fan a lesson by prompting security to escort him out of the venue.
“Excuse me, there’s a gentleman over there who just did something I don’t like. Can you please escort him out and refund his money…I don’t play that. ..I don’t need to win you over, but you don’t need to win me over. You can go, and you can take all your money right back.”
Just when the remaining fans thought it was safe to get back to the show, Lauryn went on to say,
“You can get on your blogs and you can tweet and say whatever you want to…I do this because I love it.”
Unfortunately, the fans did not feel her passion for her craft that night. Many fans were seen at the ticket booth complaining about Ms. Hill’s performance and asking for a refund. Hopefully, Lauryn’s next performances will go smoothly considering fans now know not to cross her.
Well, it appears that all the begging and pleading that Robin Thicke has done in the last couple of months has been in vain. Robin has tried everything to get back in his wife’s good graces, but nothing has been able to change actress Paula Patton’s mind. The couple officially separated in February of this year after pictures of Robin grabbing lady parts that weren’t Paula’s surfaced. Thicke has been trying to win back his wife ever since by making public apologies and even naming his latest album “Paula” which featured songs such as “Get Her Back” and “Love Can Grow Back”.
Now it appears that Robin waved the white flag for the last time, and the couple is taking the next step towards divorce. According to TMZ, an attorney has been working on separating assets for the estranged couple, and Thicke recently listed the L.A. home he shared with Paula for sale. The home is a 3, 158 square foot mansion and will be sold for almost 3 million dollars. It’s been reported that Paula hasn’t lived in the home since the couple split, but there may still be a little inkling of hope for Robin since Paula has not yet filed for divorce. We’ll just have to wait and see how this plays out.
