Chris Brown Pleads Not Guilty To Alleged Florida Photographer Attack

Chris Brown denies any wrongdoing.

Last week, Chris Breezy was performing in Florida for his Heartbreak On A Full Moon tour and when he walked off stage police were there ready to handcuff him and take him in. Chris was arrested for an outstanding warrant that was linked to an alleged attack on a photographer from the previous year.

Apparently, Bennie Vines was hired by a club to take photos of Chris who was hosting an event. While taking pictures, Chris punched him in the face but got away before cops showed up. The victim denied medical treatment but went forward with a case against Chris since suffering a split lip. The Blast now reports that Chris pleaded not guilty to the assault. The singer was not in court to preach his stance but the plea was delivered by his attorney who also asked the court to set a date for a “disposition/pre-trial conference.”

Chris apparently paid $2,000 to get out of jail and continue his tour and even hit up Instagram to let his fans know he’s good. “What’s NEW🙄????? Show tomorrow!!!! ❤.”

Chris is set to hit up Virginia Beach tomorrow followed by, New Jersey, Brooklyn and many more for the handful of dates left on the road.

Judge Orders Juelz Santana to Be Accompanied on Tour By His Mother

According to reports, Juelz Santana had his bail conditions modified which will allow the Harlem MC to go on tour with his Dipset brethren for five of the stops on the 15-city tour.

The only catch is that his mother accompanies him on those five stops. Among the other conditions, Juelz is required to wear an ankle monitor and has to drive to the tour stops while. Juelz is also prohibited from traveling with the rest of the Dipset crew.

Juelz is expected to be back in court in the coming weeks to monitor his tour experience and potentially grant the Harlem MC with further touring dates.

Juelz pleaded not guilty to firearm possession charges stemming from an incident a the Newark Liberty International Airport back in March. If convicted, Juelz could face up to 20 years in prison for the felonious crime.

FCC Officially Repeals Obama-Era Net Neutrality Rules

The Federal Communications Commission’s repeal of net neutrality rules officially went into effect Monday (June 11).

The net neutrality rules enacted by the President Barack Obama administration in 2015, prohibited internet providers from charging more for certain content such as those that require more bandwidth or from giving preferential treatment to certain websites. The rules basically required internet service providers to offer equal access to all web content.

Despite the outcry from the public imploring the F.C.C to leave net neutrality rules in place, the commission went ahead and voted to repeal the rules in December.

With net neutrality officially repealed, consumers and advocates are worried that broadband providers could begin selling the internet in bundles like cable television packages have begun doing; selling sports, MTV/VH1/BET etc bundles. For instance, access to Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites could require paying for a premium social media package. Memes with made up monetary figures circled around social media prior to the F.C.C’s vote and was a major part of the uproar from the public. Another concern is that now that paid prioritization is no longer prohibited, the transmission of data could be slowed for those who do not pay a premium while a fast lane could be occupied by big internet and media companies, as well as affluent households. Small business owners are also worried about an unfair playing field with their websites loading more slowly compared to big companies with a bigger budget. The internet has made it much easier for people to go into business for themselves with a fairly small budget but this could change things, as well as for freelancers and those who work remotely; they could face a higher cost of doing their jobs from home.

Citizens, public interests groups, state attorneys, and Democratic lawmakers pushed to overturn the decision, arguing that a repeal would allow service providers to censor content online or charge additional fees. Several states have taken steps to overrule the F.C.C’s repeal on a local level. In March, Democratic Gov. Jay Inslee of Washington signed a law that effectively replaced the federal rules. The Governors of Montana and New York used executive orders to force net neutrality. Also, as of late May, 29 state legislatures introduced bills meant to ensure net neutrality, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. Some of these measures, however, have failed, some are still pending, and some states have not taken any action at all.

The F.C.C, however, has made arguments for repealing the rules. They voted for the repeal because the rules restrained broadband providers like Verizon and Comcast from experimenting with new business models and investing in new technology. The chairman, Ajit Pai, has long argued that the rules were just put into effect in 2015 and service providers had not engaged in any of the feared practices before net neutrality was put into place.

Several internet providers have made public pledges that they will not block sites and slow down the transmission of data once the rules were repealed. They argued that Title II gave the F.C.C. too much power over their business and the regulations made it hard to expand their networks.

Democratic lawmakers are still fighting to reinstate net neutrality. Barbara Underwood, New York’s attorney general, noted that lawsuits opposing the repeal were still pending.

Stevie J fired from ‘LHHATL’

Many fans of the hit reality show “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” were mildly surprised when Stevie J was not fired the first time he got into a violent altercation with a cast mate, Benzino, and his girlfriend Althea during the reunion taping in New York several years ago.

Stevie J fired from ‘LHHATL’

But it looks like Stevie J may have crossed the line this time when he reportedly shouted vulgarities at, then allegedly got violent with female cast member Erica Mena during the latest season’s reunion show.

Multiple sources confirm that things got over the top between newcomer Erica Mena and longtime star Stevie J. The two mercurial personalities had been beefing back and forth the entire season because Mena believes Stevie is brainwashing her former friend, Estelita. Stevie J thought he and Erica were once “cool” with each other, exacerbating his resentment towards Mena.

According to Bossip and Hollywood Life, Mena got Stevie J’s blood boiling so high with a “low blow” comment that he allegedly resorted to calling her son a homophobic slur and allegedly tried to hit her on set before he could be restrained.

Moreover, according to MediaTakeout.com“Love & Hip Hop” producers fired Stevie J from the show and have subsequently barred him from engaging in any future activities connected with the VH1 series. Reportedly, the episode went so far to the left that security had to pull Stevie away from Erica, then escort him under force from the building. CelebrityInsider.orgon the other hand, says VH1 producers have begun an investigation to decide whether to keep the famously hotheaded Stevie J or terminate him for breach of contract.

Several local New York blogs were on the scene and also reported on the fracas:

 

Erica used Instagram Live to comment on the incident, which was captured by Bossip and multiple other blogs before Mena deleted the post. But she did say that Stevie J “tried to fight her” because she took a “low jab” at him.

“He likes to fight females,” she reportedly said. “If you blogs wanna blog about anything, blog about the fact the Stevie J is a B—H, and he likes to fight girls.”

 

Joseline Hernandez, a former popular cast member of “LHHATL” and ex-girlfriend of Stevie J, now feels vindicated by Stevie J’s actions as she had spoken about his alleged violent behavior for the past several years to no avail:

Jamaican $180 Million Lottery Winner Hides Identity with Emoji Mask

A photo recently surfaced online of a lottery winner in Jamaica wearing a smiling emoji mask while collecting her check. The masked woman collected her check, reportedly worth $180,900,000, from Supreme Ventures this after winning the Super Lotto draw.

The disguise is due in part to the high crime rate in Jamaica. Simone Clarke-Cooper, assistant vice-president of Group Corporate Communications at Supreme Ventures Limited, states that since Super Lotto started, winners have been wearing disguises to protect themselves.

Unfortunately, Jamaica is not like other markets. In other markets, they don’t necessarily do it, but here I think they opt to do it to keep themselves safe. We are not going to tell them not to do that because their safety is of paramount importance to us as well,” she said.

She made it clear, however, that the company never directly suggest the winners wear disguises.

People have been coming with their own disguises. They usually don’t need our help, and they are usually very creative, perhaps beyond anything that we could think of or imagine, and it has been very effective over the years,” Cooper noted.

Fitz Jackson, an Opposition spokesman on National Security, said that it’s unfortunate that crime has forced winners of the jackpots to hide their identity from the public, but he understands the reservations people have.

Not only to protect themselves from criminals, but people inundate them to share the benefit,” said Jackson.
