According to a report, Kelis allegedly left her nanny stranded while overseas, and now has to pay almost $18,000 to the woman.

The nanny—Soraya Tascon was with Kelis while the singer was on tour in June 2016. Tascon was taking care of Kelis’ then six-month-old baby and seven-month-old son that she and Nas have together. Kelis reportedly was supposed to give the nanny $750 a week to take care of her children, but did not do so. When they reached London, Kelis fired the nanny and didn’t pay for a plane ticket for the woman to get back to Los Angeles.

Tascon had to find her way back to L.A. and filed a complaint to the Labor Commission of the State of California. It was noted that the Labor Commissioner immediately sided with Tascon in the matter, saying she was a victim.

Long Beach Rapper “Mario C” Facing 3 Years for Threating Mayor on Twitter

Long Beach rapper Mario C admits that his online trolling may have gone too far, as he’s now facing years in prison for threatening Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia.

Back in July, Mario, real name Mario Chheng, wrote, “Run up into your city halls n let off a thousand rounds.” A few hours later, he wrote, “I’ll join lbpd soon. N I’ll murk our mayor within a year.”

Chheng told the Long Beach Post that he was just trolling and didn’t intend to do anything to the mayor. He explained, “I was saying it, but there was no real intent behind it. On the scale of probability it wasn’t anywhere near above the 50 percent mark. It was just more so having the balls to say it, but at the same time I’m saying it behind a computer screen, so there’s no real balls involved.”

During his interview with the Post, Chheng admitted that he was annoyed that his posts weren’t getting the attention he wanted, so he decided to take his trolling to a different level. He stated, “I feel like people are watching my stuff but nobody is responding or reacting, so I’m just thinking it’s kind of weird, so it kind of forces me to say more and more outrageous stuff — just to get a reaction. I got a reaction. It just wasn’t the one I was expecting.”

The rapper also admitted that he was jumped by a group of people after previously claiming to be “the biggest Crip in Long Beach.”

Chheng was released on $50,000 bond after being charged with charged with one felony count of threatening a public official, which faces up to three years in prison.
