NEWS: The Real Reason Diddy Punched Drake In The Face! [KingpinTV.net]

Diddy assaulted Drake early Monday morning because of a feud over a song.

As we reported, Diddy punched Drake at LIV nightclub in Miami Beach, and we were told it was because Diddy felt disrespected by the rapper, and now we know why.

Our sources say, producer Boi-1da had given both Diddy and Drake a song to record more than 8 months ago. We’re told Diddy sat on the song, which frustrated Drake because he wanted to record it. So recently Drake recorded the song on his own and it did well, which pissed Diddy off.

NEWS/VIDEO: Drake Rushes Back Into Club After Friend Gets Punched In Face! [KingpinTV.net]

Drake threw a whole lot of cash away Sunday … but he wasn’t making it rain — the rapper was rushing into a club he had just left in a fury, looking like he was ready for a fight.

Drake was celebrating his birthday at Club Stadium in Washington D.C. Saturday night/early Sunday … and we don’t know why, but Drizzy was carrying what looked like thousands of bucks.

Some people inside the club claimed they saw someone punch a member of Drake’s crew … which could have triggered his temper. The rumour right now is it’s his DJ, Future The Prince (we hope not cause that’s our fam). We’re still trying to find out more.

Someone in Drake’s entourage was heads up enough to retrieve most of the loot.

TMZ has leaked footage from a surveillance camera in an elevator which caught Solange Knowles physically attacking Jay Z multiple times, as Beyonce stood by. It is unclear what prompted the heated confrontation that occurred after a last week’s Met Gala. Every family has drama. Every one. We hope theirs is resolved peacefully. Here’s the video.

 

 

Here’s the statement from The Standard Hotel in NYC, where the incident took place:

“We are shocked and disappointed that there was a clear breach of our security system and the confidentiality that we count on providing our guests. We are investigating with the utmost urgency the circumstances surrounding the situation and, as is our customary practice, will discipline and prosecute the individuals involved to our fullest capacity.”

NEWS: Justin Bieber Attacked Inside Toronto Nightclub! [KingpinTV.net]

Justin Bieber was bum rushed in a Canadian nightclub by an over eager partier who tried in vain to tackle him — and TMZ has the pics.

It all went down at 3 am today at a Toronto nightclub. Sources on scene tell us JB left his safe VIP section to mingle with the regular folk — and that’s when a male clubgoer charged at him, got hold of his shirt (which he was wearing) and attempted to take him down, but failed.

Which makes sense … have you seen Bieber’s abs? Of course you have.

In the pics … you can see security rushed in stat (below) and managed to pull the guy off Bieber — successfully taking him to the ground. In the midst of the chaos we’re told JB was seen trying to defend himself, unleashing a fury of kicks.

The attacker was escorted out of he club. Police were never called.

UPDATE: Charges Won’t Be Filed Against Scottie Pippen! [KingpinTV.net]

Editors Note: This is an update from this previous post

Prosecutors won’t file criminal charges against Scottie Pippen for fighting with an autograph seeker who authorities say was drunk and exaggerated his injuries including faking seizures after claiming the former Chicago Bulls star punched him in the face.

The Los Angeles County district attorney’s office said Tuesday there was insufficient evidence to bring assault charges against Pippen for the altercation with Camran Shafighi at Nobu, a sushi restaurant and celebrity hangout on the beach in Malibu.

Pippen was dining with his family June 24 when he was approached by Shafighi inside the restaurant. Pippen obliged to have a photo taken but not with Shafighi, and then Shafighi followed the retired NBA forward outside into the parking lot. He again asked for a photo and an autograph from Pippen, who said no.

Pippen told investigators Shafighi became irate, “grabbing at him, cursing him and then spit in his face,” according to a report by the district attorney’s office.

Shafighi, 49, said Pippen punched him in the mouth and kicked him several times. The last memory Shafighi had before losing consciousness was seeing Pippen’s foot coming toward his face, the report said.

Pippen admitted spitting at Shafighi and pushing him away, but prosecutors said that based on witness accounts, it was unclear whether Pippen was the aggressor or acted in self-defense.

Shafighi, who has filed a $4 million lawsuit against Pippen, was taken to a hospital with a possible concussion. All tests showed there wasn’t any internal trauma, but Shafighi returned to the hospital later and told doctors he had been diagnosed with fractured ribs and ankle, the report said. The only visible physical injuries were a small bruise on Shafighi’s chin and a cut to his lip.

Shafighi, whose blood sample turned up positive for opiates and a 0.18 percent blood-alcohol level — twice the legal limit for driving — also feigned having seizures, according to the report. The seizures ended when the doctor ordered him to stop them.

The physician who examined Shafighi told investigators he believed Shafighi was “making up stuff,” the report said.

Pippen’s attorney, Mark Geragos, indicated his client will sue.

“This shakedown artist was drunk, screaming racial slurs, and assaulted my client and his family,” Geragos said. “Scottie and his family are grateful to the sheriff for their investigation and DA for their decision to reject these unfounded charges. Scottie and his family plan on holding this man accountable for his outrageous actions.”

Steve Kaplan, a spokesman for Shafighi’s lawyer Lee Boyd, said they were reviewing the report and couldn’t immediately comment.

Pippen, 47, won six NBA titles with Michael Jordan and the Bulls. In 1996, he was named one of the NBA’s 50 greatest players. He was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2010.

NEWS/VIDEO: Meek Mill Stops Fight Between 50 Cent And Trav On Stage! [KingpinTV.net]

Beef sparked when 50 Cent brought Meek Mill onstage in Atlanta, and former G-Unit rapper Trav tried to join the party.

Meek Mill and 50 Cent have had their differences in the past, mainly involving the beef between Fif, and Meek’s bawse, Rick Ross. However, when 50 called Meek Mill to the stage at a Mixshow Live Event in Atlanta Saturday night, Meek was actually the one breaking up the beef.

As Mill walked onstage with his entourage, Fif spotted a familiar face amongst the crew. Former G-Unit rapper Trav (who has beef with 50) was attempting to take the stage by sneaking in with Meek’s posse. 

Curtis spotted him right away, and made it clear he was not welcome. When things got pushy between the former allies, Meek stepped in to break things up.

Not much else is clear from the footage, but it appears that the show continued on after Trav left the stage.

NEWS: Lawsuit Against Chris Brown & Drake Dismissed! [KingpinTV.net]

A lawsuit filed against Chris Brown and his rap rival Drake after their notorious nightclub brawl last year has been thrown out of court.

The pair’s entourages came to blows in New York City’s W.i.P venue in June last year after an argument allegedly erupted over Rihanna, who has dated both of the stars.

Following the altercation, bosses at Entertainment Enterprises, Ltd., who own a large stake in Greenhouse, a club located in the same building, filed a $16 million lawsuit against the pair, alleging their reputation was ruined by the media fallout.

However a judge has disagreed with their claims and ruled the stars have no duty to behave in the club, especially as they were not even in the nightspot when the fight broke out. The judge also insisted altercations in nightclubs are common, and bosses can’t sue every time one occurs.

Last year, Drake filed legal papers urging the case’s presiding judge to toss out the suit, claiming the Greenhouse already had a bad reputation and its liquor licence was once suspended due to a “string of violent incidents”.

UPDATE: Scottie Pippen Sued Over Recent Malibu Fistfight! [KingpinTV.net]

Editors Note: This is an update from this previous post

NBA great Scottie Pippen is being sued by an autograph-seeker for an altercation that happened outside a Southern California restaurant.

Via CBS News, attorneys for the autograph-seeker filed a lawsuit for $4 million Thursday in Los Angeles. They claim their client, Camran Shafighi, asked Pippen for an autograph for his girlfriend’s son and suffered a “brutal and unjustified” attack.

According to officials in the sheriff’s department, Pippen was eating with his family June 23 in Malibu at an upper-scale sushi restaurant. They say Shafighi was taking pictures and requesting autographs both inside the restaurant and then again in the parking lot, when an argument turned violent, which ended with Shafighi being treated at a hospital for a head injury.

After the incident, Pippen was questioned but not arrested or charged.

Pippen, 47, played 17 seasons in the NBA, winning six championships as a member of the Bulls alongside Michael Jordan. Pippen was named one of the 50 greatest players by the NBA.

Pippen was hired in October 2012 to serve as an advisor to Bulls president and COO Michael Reinsdorf.

NEWS: 50 Cent Charged With Domestic Violence & Vandalism! [KingpinTV.net]

Criminal charges have been filed against 50 Cent for allegedly injuring an ex-girlfriend and destroying $7,100 in property during an altercation, the Los Angeles City Attorney’s office said in a press release Wednesday.

The rapper, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, was charged with five criminal counts including one count of domestic violence and four counts of vandalism.  He faces up to five years in jail and $46,000 in fines.

50 Cent and the woman, who was not identified, have a child together.

On June 23, the LAPD responded to a domestic violence call at a condo where the hip-hop star was allegedly damaging the property of the ex-girlfriend.  The woman reportedly locked herself in the bathroom, but 50 Cent kicked open the door and kicked her causing an injury, the release said.

According to the release, officers saw broken chandeliers and furniture in the condo, as well as a ransacked bedroom closet and a broken lamp and TV.

“Regardless of perceived celebrity or notoriety, domestic violence is a serious crime and alleged perpetrators will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law by this office,” City Attorney Mike Feuer said in a statement. “We will continue to look out for the safety of all victims of domestic violence and seek justice for the alleged crimes.”

The arraignment is scheduled for July 22.

NEWS: Uhh Ohh… Lil Mama Calls Out Nicki Minaj, Again! [KingpinTV.net]

Move over Lil Kim, there’s another female rapper not too fond of Nicki Minaj. Lil Mama is the latest to put the formerly minted Harajuku Barbie on blast for not supporting other women in her arena.

Lil Mama says the former American Idol judge is basically a fraud. “It’s a lot of underground women who are trying to break through, but on a mainstream level the one person that I really hear on the radio is Nicki Minaj,” she said. “A lot of times, I hear her say. ‘I do this for women,’ and ‘I’m doing this for all of us,’ while she’s accepting a BET award, but other than that I don’t see her embracing any other women. I feel it’s time for female MCs to really start sticking together and start putting out some music.”

The “Lipgloss” rapper continued, “One of the things that makes me most happy about music is that I can look at a picture and see Da Brat, Missy [Elliott], Lil Kim, Left Eye and I know Aaliyah is a singer, but to see them all in one photo together hugging and laughing and really having genuine love for each other,” she said, referencing the 1997 single “Not Tonight (Ladies Night remix), “I want to feel that with my hip hop sisters.

“I feel like we shouldn’t bash each other on records and get in-person and talk about how there is no more room for another female MC, ‘It’s only me and F you.’ Even with the dudes, they will battle and let you know, ‘You are not nicer than me,’ but at the end of the day, we should be able to get together and enjoy each other. ”

Lil Mama has blasted the Queens MC before (for allegedly jacking her style), but this more recent “girl power” kick may be inspired by her role as Left Eye in the TLC biopic Crazy Sexy Cool. The film chronicles the Atlanta-based trio’s career highs and lows, and will premiere on VH1 later this year.

NEWS: Chris Brown Confirms Split With Rihanna! [KingpinTV.net]

Chris Brown’s and Rihanna’s love has hit another sour note. Rather than let the rumor mill run rampant for too long, Breezy confirmed to Australia’s Kyle & Jackie O show Sunday (May 5) that he and Rihanna have split (again).

Speaking about his birthday, Brown announced that he’d be celebrating as a single man. “I really wanna see as many girls as possible,” he said. “I’m do [this birthday] solo. At the end of the day, shorty [Rihanna’s] doing her thing, she on the road.

“It’s always gon’ be love but I’ma do me. I’m a grown man so I just gotta’ walk forward.”

The 24-year-old didn’t go too deep into detail but from the sounds of it, the relationship’s end may have been spearheaded by Rihanna, which he eluded to on the song “I Can’t Win,” released last week. “People have different wants and needs,” he explained. “At the end of the day she [Rihanna’s] a young girl. I can’t really be focused on wife-ing somebody that young…and I’m young too, so I can’t focus on that right now. I just gotta step forward and be a man, and be the best Chris Brown I can be, instead of worrying about whoever else is going to be in my side pocket.”

Now that he’s single, the “Fine China” crooner hasn’t wasted much time getting back into the swing of things. He celebrated his birthday in Los Angeles and Las Vegas over the weekend, re-linking with ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran, who partied with the Virginia native on Friday (May 3) night.

Apparently unable to keep all of his feelings inside, Twitter later became the forum for a series of now deleted post-split tweets. “N—a can’t even be happy on his birthday! I’m over trying to please y’a’ll I’m catching any FADES. On god! I’m wit all the bulls—,” he wrote. “I’m personally so f—ing tired of people it’s sick! Who made ya’ll god!!!! Society is f—ing overrated and a bunch of followers.”

Rihanna’s hasn’t yet responded to Brown’s interview, but since the 25-year-old’s health is on the mend, her focus is likely on finishing up the Diamonds World Tour, which rolled into New York City last night.

NEWS: Nicki Minaj Speaks On Mariah Carey, “I Thought She Was My Friend”! [KingpinTV.net]

No one is more surprised by the Nicki Minaj/Mariah Carey beef than the rapper herself. Amid rumors that neither will return to American Idol next season, Minaj sat down for an interview with Ryan Seacrest, where her battle with Mimi took center stage.

The dueling judges never quite hit it off, first arguing during Idol auditions months ahead of the show’s premiere. Now, Minaj says that she never expected to fall out with her personal idol. “Imagine someone that you loved your whole life,” she said. “Imagine meeting them and then all of a sudden feeling like you did something horrible to them, but you just don’t know what you did. That’s what my relationship with Mariah is, and that’s what it’s been from the beginning.”

Finding common ground has been a challenge for the divas, but it wasn’t always that way. Minaj collaborated with Carey for the remix of “Up Out My Face” in 2010, and believed they were on good terms. “I just really thought that we were friends, but that’s the other thing I learned, this industry is so fake. You walk away thinking people are your friends, and they’re not. It’s a couple of nice ‘hi’ and ‘byes’ and then really, you better not step on nobody’s toes. And God forbid you get a little shine. And God forbid you may be witty or quick on your toes, or make someone laugh, then maybe you’re making another person feel insecure.”

However, when it comes to Nick Cannon’s better half, the YMCMB rhymer has no problem calling out such issues. Before the sit-down with Seacrest, Minaj responded to a “messy” tweet from celeb blogger Perez Hilton, telling him to focus on why Carey “is still so insecure and bitter.”

On a purely positive note, working next to her now nemesis has taught the 30-year-old Minaj a valuable lesson. “You shouldn’t have to dim your light to let another person shine.”

NEWS: Javaris Crittenton Officially Indicted On Murder Charges! [KingpinTV*net]

From humble beginnings as a child in Atlanta Georgia, to starring at Georgia Tech & making it to the NBA, Javaris Crittenton seemed destined to make it big. Things have changed for the former Georgia State “Mr Basketball” and member of “Future Business Leaders of America”

Crittenton was indicted on murder charges along with his cousin in a case officials call a gang-related shooting that took place Atlanta in 2011.

No trial date has been set.

Crittenton, 25, and Douglas Gamble heard of 12-count indictment in Atlanta’s Fulton County District Court. Officers allege Crittenton fired a gun that killed a mother of two, Julian Jones, who was walking in a group of people. Officials suspect the incident was retaliatory, citing Crittenton as the victim of a robbery during which he had $50,000 of jewelry stolen.

Crittenton’s last stint in the NBA was with the Charlotte Bobcats. He was drafted in the first round of the 2007 draft by the Los Angeles Lakers and played for the Memphis Grizzlies and Washington Wizards.

He is well known for a Christmas Eve 2009 incident in which he and teammate Gilbert Arenas drew guns on each other in the Wizards’ locker room during an argument over gambling debts

NEWS/VIDEO: Pacquiao Loses To Marquez In Thrilling Boxing Fight! [KingpinTV*net]

LAS VEGAS — This time, there was no doubt. This time, Juan Manuel Marquez did not leave it up to the judges. This time, the Mexican ring warrior left Manny Pacquiao face-first on the canvas.

Covered in a mask of blood, the 39-year-old fighter blasted Pacquiao with a huge right hand with one second remaining in the sixth round to score a decisive knockout, the first time he defeated his Filipino adversary in four attempts.

Pacquiao charged into the Mexican counterpuncher’s danger zone and ran into a right hand, dropping the Filipino along the ropes. Pacquiao lay motionless for several seconds as the sellout crowd of 16,398 at the MGM Grand Arena erupted.

“That’s boxing,” said Pacquiao, who added he has no plans to retire. “I started to get confident, but I never expected that punch.”

Marquez said, “I knew after the last three rounds that he was going for the knockout and I could be knocked out at any time. I hit him with the perfect punch.”

Freddie Roach, Pacquiao’s trainer, said he felt his fighter was in charge. “He just got a little too careless, but he was hurting Marquez,” the trainer said. Pacquiao had knocked Marquez down in the fifth round and nearly had him stopped at that point.

Marquez, who never had won a fight above 140 pounds, was behind on all three judges’ cards when the fight dramatically ended. This time, there was no need for Marquez (55-6-1, 40 KOs) to complain about the judges’ scoring. The former four-division world champion had bitterly disputed the results of their three previous encounters, particularly his points loss last November in Las Vegas.

Marquez did not suffer a broken nose, as was believed earlier, just bruised. Pacquiao, meanwhile, was taken to the trauma center to get checked out. The CT scan was negative.

Asked about a fifth fight between the two, Top Rank promoter Bob Arum, who handles Pacquiao, said, “Why not? We haven’t seen such an exciting fight in years. This fight will go down in history as a ring classic.”

Pacquiao (54-5-2, 38 KOs), who also went down in the third round, has lost two fights in a row for the first time in his career and was stopped for the first time in more than 13 years.

The former eight-division world champion had claimed world titles at 112, 122, 130, 135, 147 and 154 pounds. He had his seven-year winning streak snapped in June by Timothy Bradley Jr. when he lost a controversial split decision in Las Vegas.

He said he would be up for a fifth fight. “It’s up to my promoter. Let’s fight again,” Pacquiao said before heading to the hospital.

Pacquiao landed 94 total punches to Marquez’s 52, and outlanded Marquez in power punches 68-41. Pacquiao connected on 37% of his punches, while Marquez landed at a 21% clip. But in the end, he only needed one.

Prior to Saturday’s fight, parity held sway in the series which began in 2004 when they tussled at 125 pounds. Pacquiao had eked out a draw in 2004 and narrowly won disputed decisions in 2008 and 2011.

In a brawling preliminary bout, Cuban-born super-featherweight Yuriorkis Gamboa of Miami won a unanimous decision against Michael Farenas of the Philippines. Gamboa, 30, a former Olympic gold medalist, remained unbeaten (22-0, 17 KOs). Farenas, a southpaw, dropped Gamboa late in the ninth round with a hard left, but was unable to finish him.

In the pro debut of 2012 U.S. Olympian Jose Ramirez, the lightweight from Avenal, Calif., stopped Corey Siegwarth of Denver with a first-round technical knockout.

NEWS: Amber Patrice Riley Of “GLEE” Fame, In Huge Dispute With NYC Nightclub! [KingpinTV*net]

“Glee” star Amber Patrice Riley threw a childish self-important temper tantrum last night at a NYC nightclub — all because the club refused to supply her 30-PERSON party with an arsenal of free booze — this according to the nightclub in question.

In case you missed it, Amber went off the rails on Twitter last night when WIP nightclub put the kibosh on her party plans — writing, “Never in my life have I dealt with such disrespect. That club @WIPNewYork on Vandam street, they are CROOKS and LIARS!”

FYI — WIP nightclub is the place where the infamous Drake vs. Chris Brown brawl went down earlier this year.

But a rep for WIP says the club wasn’t being unreasonable when it refused admission to Riley and her massive entourage. The rep says, “Ms. Riley’s team had contacted management before her arrival to work out her table arrangements which included the purchase of bottles as well as a bottle on the house.

Upon arrival, her party of 30 people refused to purchase any bottles, so they did not enter.” It’s almost like they’re in business to make money. 

Calls to Amber’s camp weren’t returned.

NEWS: Comedian Katt Williams Has Onstage Meltdown! [KingpinTV*net]

According to mercurynews.com Katt Williams most recent performance was far less than memorable. Angry fans demanded refunds after comedian Katt Williams’ show Friday night at Oracle Arena disintegrated into chaos, with Williams delivering rambling monologues devoid of jokes and being dragged off by his own security after he challenged a heckler to fight.

Williams was already facing legal trouble over his stop in Oakland, with police arresting him in connection with a Wednesday night brawl aboard a tour van and the man he allegedly assaulted promptly suing for damages.

After Friday night’s show, angry comments from fans poured in on Facebook and Twitter, with some complaining that Williams’ show had ended after 10 minutes. Many said they expected a refund; ticket prices ranged from $33 to $94, plus service fees.

“It was the weirdest thing I’ve ever seen in my life,” said Erick Lucero, who was working on the arena floor as a security guard. “The whole show went really well (before Williams’ main set). … It was a packed house, and everyone was really satisfied with the show” up to that point.

The show, which was scheduled to begin at 8 p.m., started about an hour late, according to Christopher Douglas, 22, who came to Oakland from American Canyon. Williams came on stage briefly to start the show, tossed a Frisbee to the audience and told a few jokes about the election before introducing the opening acts.

“He was joking like he does in all four DVDs of his that I own,” said Douglas, a magnetic inspector at Pacific

Steel in Berkeley who was seeing Williams live for the first time. “I thought it was going to be a normal Katt Williams show.”

After the opening performances by fellow comedians and a couple of songs by Oakland rapper Too $hort, Williams took the stage about 10:40 p.m., Douglas said.

The comedian joked about selling out the arena, something he said the Golden State Warriors couldn’t do. An audience member asked about the Wednesday night brawl, and Williams said he had been released because even Oakland police were fans.

About seven or eight minutes after Williams took the stage for his set, Lucero said, he “started acting weird,” taking off his shirt and sweating profusely. Douglas said he quickly transitioned into his familiar closing bit, rattling off his various nicknames before leaving the stage.

“I was like, ‘That’s it?'” Douglas said. “After that, I saw everyone leaving … throngs of people leaving.”

Douglas and his father, who came to the show with him, left as well.

About 15 minutes passed, and between a quarter and half of the audience left, before Williams returned. Once he came back on stage the second time, Lucero said, “there were no more jokes.”

One video shows Williams sitting on a stool, hunched over, delivering a disjointed monologue about spending time in Oakland and discussing God.

In another video, a member of Williams’ entourage walks on stage and speaks to the comedian for a moment. As the man leaves the stage, Williams follows him and appears to strike the back of his head with the microphone.

A profanity-laced video posted to YouTube shows Williams challenging a heckler to come onstage and fight him and telling the person to come backstage after the show. A burly security guard hauls Williams away from the stage’s edge and to the backstage area.

Lucero said many people leaving the arena accosted him, saying they wanted a refund. Security personnel are instructed to have unhappy ticketholders contact the outlet where they bought their tickets.

Douglas said he “absolutely” felt he deserved a refund. Representatives from promoter Live Nation could not be reached for comment Saturday.

A spokeswoman for the Save Mart Center in Fresno confirmed Saturday afternoon that Williams’ show, scheduled for Saturday night, would continue as planned.

The incident Wednesday night resulted in Williams’ arrest, according to Oakland police spokeswoman Johnna Watson, but the comedian, whose real name is Micah S. Katt Williams, was not booked into jail and has not been charged.

An 18-year-old aspiring rapper, Delvahn Mosely-Davis, sued Williams on Friday, saying the chance encounter near Oakland’s Courtyard Marriott Hotel began with fans greeting the comedy star and ended with Williams bashing him in the head with a bottle.

Williams’ Nov. 1 show in Denver ended with the comedian jumping into the crowd to confront hecklers about a half-hour after he took the stage.

Williams is also facing a $5 million lawsuit filed earlier this month by his personal assistant, who alleges he hit her in October in Los Angeles and caused permanent eye injuries.

In June 2011, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department deputies arrested him on charges of false imprisonment for an incident involving a man on a tractor in Palmdale, according to published reports. Between November 2006 and June 2011, Williams was arrested at least two other times on weapons charges and burglary, and he spent time in jail in those cases, according to published reports.
