Love & Hip-Hop Star Althea Eaton Busted for Smacking Benzino

Benzino was assaulted by Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star Althea Eaton who also happens to be the mother of one of his children. Eaton attempted to kick Benzino out of their house last week when police were summoned to their home for a domestic dispute.

Authorities told TMZ that Eaton smacked Benzino upside the head after he decided not to leave the house. She struck the blow right in front of police who later apprehended her and held her on $20K bond. She was released early this morning.

The two have battled publicly both on the show and social media over Benzino’s cheating. It seems like this last time Eaton finally had enough and tried to literally give him the boot but he wasn’t having it. Last year, Eaton took to Instagram to vent her frustration over Benzino’s meddling with there women.

“Been QUIET, Loyal, ride or die for this n***a for the PAST 2 YEARS!!! @iambenzino he’s been living WITH ME for the past 3 months and has the audacity to text other b****hes. Been thru so much s*** behind him and this how he repays me.

I’ve been the only one in his corner lately but he still trying to be in these streets? I guess a girl who is loyal, stays in her own lane, and NOT S*CK CHASING isn’t good enough. I changed my whole life. Quit my job, stop going out, stop hanging with friends.”



Kevin Gates Released From Prison

According to the news outlet, the rapper became a free man again when he walked out from behind bars on Wednesday (Jan. 10) morning. “Gates served 9 months of a 30-month sentence, and was released from an Illinois state prison on parole. As we first reported, he’ll be on mandatory supervision and can’t possess any firearms,” TMZ reads.

If you can recall, Gates was also released from custody back in Florida in 2017 after kicking a woman in the chest, during one of his shows. However, the former XXL Freshman was re-arrested for a warrant that was outstanding because of a previous weapon charge.

Welcome back to civilization, Gates.

Kevin Gates Offered Plea Deal

Gates, real name Kevin Jerome Gilyard, got in trouble back in 2015 after he allegedly kicked a fan who grabbed onto his shorts during a concert. The Lakeland, Florida police department filed a criminal complaint against Gates, charging him with simple battery.

The Islah spitter was sentenced to six months behind bars and ended up serving five for the assault charge. The day he was to become a free man, a separate weapons-related charge from Illinois popped up, sending Gates back in. He’s currently serving time at the East Moline Correctional Center, where he pleaded guilty to being in possession of a firearm as a felon during a 2013 arrest.

OJ Simpson Released from Prison

Orenthal James “OJ” Simpson has officially been released from Lovelock Correctional Center in Las Vegas on October 1, 2017, at 12:08 AM after serving 9 years in prison. Rumors started to circulate about OJ getting released on Monday, but the prison was concerned with a media circus and therefore chose to quietly release OJ early this morning. OJ will be on supervised parole for the next 5 years.

On October 3, 2008, Simpson was found guilty of kidnapping and armed robbery for entering a Las Vegas hotel room with a group of men and stealing sports memorabilia at gunpoint. OJ admitted to taking the items but claimed that they were stolen from him by a known associate. OJ’s co-defendants all took plea deals and he was sentenced to 33 years with a possibility of parole after 9 years.

Many believed that OJ’s harsh sentence was payback for being found not guilty of killing his wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman in the 1995 “Trial of the Century”. According to polls, 83% of white Americans and 57% of black Americans felt that Simpson was actually guilty. Simpson went on to lose the wrongful death civil case with Ron Goldman’s family, where the family was awarded $33.5 million. The family was unable to recover hardly any of that amount from OJ. The items in question that resulted in his recent jail sentence were allegedly hidden from Goldman’s family to avoid the civil suit.


Trump Tweets About Puerto Rico’s Billions in Debt After Hurricane

President Trump finally addressed the catastrophic impact Hurricane Maria has had on Puerto Rico after mounting calls for him to shift his focus from NFL protests to the urgent matter, on Monday, September 25. And in doing so, the firebrand Commander-In-Chief insensed many by raising a reminder of the commonwealth’s debt to Wall Street bondholders.

“Texas & Florida are doing great but Puerto Rico, which was already suffering from broken infrastructure & massive debt, is in deep trouble,” Trump tweeted. “It’s old electrical grid, which was in terrible shape, was devastated. Much of the Island was destroyed, with billions of dollars owed to Wall Street and the banks which, sadly, must be dealt with. Food, water and medical are top priorities – and doing well.”

The tweet is being blasted as insensitive and ill-timed in light of the devastating conditions on the ground in the aftermath of the Category 5 storm. Comedian Wanda Sykes and musician Marc Anthony are among the public figures who have blasted Trump’s focus on athlete protests as Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Rick Perry, Marco Rubio and other lawmakers urge cooperation with Puerto Rican governor Ricardo Rossello’s push for Congress to pass a relief package that could prove sufficient in sparing further tragedy and getting the island back up and running.


President Trump Won’t Be Invited To Celebrity-Studded Hurricane Harvey Telethon

Houston rapper Bun B and Scooter Braun are busy planning the September 12, 2017, celebrity-studded Hurricane Harvey telethon, but President Trump may not get an invite. As devastating flooding has engulfed Texas and the full damage is still too early to assess, people nationwide are standing in solidarity to help their fellow citizens.

The Hurricane Harvey telethon will not be a place to promote political agendas or spread bigotry and hatred. According to Bun B, unless President Trump can find his place alongside other presidents, such as Barack Obama in a show of strength and unity, he won’t be invited to appear.

There will be three simulcasted telethons across the nation including one in Nashville, Tennessee, New York, New York, and Los Angeles, California. Reese Witherspoon and Blake Shelton will host the Nashville telethon, tentatively Michael Strahan and Kelly Rowland will host the New York telethon (this is subject to change) and Jaimie Foxx and Hillary Duff are tentatively scheduled to host the Los Angeles telethon. Organizers are interested in celebrities who were born and/or raised in Houston to participate in the telethon.

Bun B is outspoken about the treatment of blacks in a country that is seemingly on the verge of a race war. With white supremacists rearing its head again, Bun B is one of the most outspoken and vocal rappers on issues of race and division in the nation.

He has repeatedly called upon white Americans to stand up against racism, and it shouldn’t come as a surprise that he would withhold an invitation to President Trump unless he proudly stands alongside Barack Obama and other presidents.

The news that Bun B will not invite President Trump unless he stands in unity with other presidents is getting a mixed reaction on social media. Some feel that Bun B shouldn’t single out President Trump, while others wholeheartedly agree.
