Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star Tommie Lee is in jail AGAIN after she was arrested for the SECOND TIME in less than 24 hours Wednesday (Oct. 18).
As we reported yesterday, Tommie (real name: Atasha Chizaah Jefferson) was arrested on charges of battery, aggravated assault and child cruelty after the reality star allegedly smashed her daughter’s head into her locker at Griffin Middle School in Cobb County, Georgia. Online reports allege the 34-year-old also punched her teenage daughter.
Tommie posted a $27,000 bond and was released early Wednesday morning at 4:40 a.m. She was ordered to stay away from her daughter, but she apparently violated that order by making contact with her daughter within 3 hours of getting out of jail, TMZ reports.
According to WSBTV Atlanta, Tommie was arrested again at her home in Smyrna around 8 p.m. Wednesday, but not without incident. WSBTV reporter Matt Johnson said Tommie allegedly refused to come to the door when police arrived, and she tried to evade them by hiding in her attic.
After her second arrest, Tommie was charged with aggravated stalking (for violating the no-contact order) and obstruction of an officer (for hiding from police).
Tommie is currently being held without bond in the Cobb County Jail, where she will remain indefinitely.
The 9-year-old black boy at the center of the “Cornerstore Caroline” debacle is not ready to turn the other cheek after a white woman falsely accused him of groping her.
With his mother standing beside him and with tears running down his face, Jeremiah Harvey spoke out at a community meeting in New York outside the Flatbush deli where the incident occurred. “Friendship is really the key,” the boy said.
Jeremiah’s emotional response came just days after Teresa Klein accused the boy of grabbing her butt in a Brooklyn corner store and threatened to call the police. Video footage showing her antics went viral on social media and she was given the nickname “Cornerstore Caroline.”
Klein apologized after viewing surveillance video that proved that Jeremiah never touched her. The footage showed Jeremiah’s backpack brushing against her backside as he passed her in the store, and his hands were clearly in front of him the entire time.
“I was wrong. The child accidentally brushed me,” she told News 12 Brooklyn, as laughter erupted from people in the deli who gathered to watch the footage with her. “Young man, I don’t know your name, but I’m sorry.”
Jeremiah’s mother, Someko Bellille, also spoke at Mondays’ meeting, telling the crowd, “What happened to us respecting one another, having unity and being neighborly?”
After the meeting, Jeremiah told ABC New York station WABC that he does NOT accept Cornerstore Caroline’s raggedy a** apology. “I don’t forgive this woman, and she needs help,” he said.
Justin Crawford, a former Georgia high school and college football star and NFL flameout, was arrested last weekend for sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl who is related to him.
Police said Crawford, 23, was spotted by his wife in the living of the couple’s home in Columbus, GA standing over the young girl while he had an erection at about 5 a.m. Saturday (Oct. 13), the Ledger-Enquirer reported.
Crawford’s wife, Chakeya Crawford, later said that she only saw him exposing himself and he immediately ran into the kitchen to cover up.
When she questioned her husband about what had happened, he denied any wrongdoing, and she went back to bed with the hopes of revisiting the incident at a later time. (Ed. note: First of all… WTF?!)
“I did not see anyone having sex, or I would have called police right away,” Mrs. Crawford later told the Ledger-Enquirer. She said when she asked her husband why he ran, he told her, “You scared me. That’s why I ran.”
When she took the 12-year-old to the child’s mother, she asked what happened, and that’s when the girl explained everything. She said when she was asleep in the living room, Crawford walked in and had her perform oral sex on him before they had sexual intercourse.
The girl was taken for a medical exam that included compiling a “sex assault kit” to collect any DNA evidence, Detective Mark Scruggs said.
When questioned by police, Crawford initially denied any sexual contact with the girl, but later admitted to having oral sex and intercourse with her, claiming that the whole thing was her idea, Det. Scruggs said.
A judge found probable cause to send Crawford’s case to Muscogee Superior Court and ordered him to be held without bond, according to the Ledger-Enquirer.
Crawford now faces felony charges of incest, sodomy and enticing a child for indecent purpose, jail records show.
Crawford—a native of Columbus, GA—was named the Big 12 Newcomer of the Year in his senior season at West Virginia University after transferring from Northwest Mississippi College following his sophomore season.
While at junior college, he was named the National Junior College Athletic Association’s Offensive Player of the Year.
During his time at West Virginia, Crawford racked up more than 2,200 rushing yards with 11 touchdowns in two seasons. He was considered an exceptional running back who rushed for 331 yards in a game against Oklahoma in 2016 when he was a college junior.
Crawford signed as an undrafted free agent with the Atlanta Falcons in May, but, according to the team’s website, he was cut from the roster in September during the preseason. The Atlanta Legends of the Alliance of American Football also said Crawford was waived after his arrest.
Police in have one suspect in custody and are looking for two others following a shooting outside the Cook Out fast food restaurant in Spartanburg, South Carolina over the weekend that sent six people to the hospital.
Here’s what you need to know:
The shooting happened in the parking lot of a Cook Out restaurant. Six people were shot and admitted into the hospital.
Spartanburg Police Department officers responded to reports of shots fired at the Cook Out on John B. White Sr. Boulevard not too long after 11:30 p.m. last Saturday night (Oct. 13). According to the responding officers, the suspect(s) never entered the fast food joint and shooting happened in the parking lot.
A total of six people were shot: two males and one female victim were taken to Spartanburg Regional via ambulance, and the four others with gunshot wounds were taken to the hospital by personal vehicle.
The shooting victims’ ages range from 16 to 24-years-old, and fortunately, none of them suffered any life-threatening injuries and were expected to recover, police said.
The majority of the victims in the shooting were innocent bystanders, police said, adding that some of them were students from either Dorman High School or Spartanburg High School.
Three vehicles in the parking lot were hit by gunfire, police said.
Dorman High School senior Kaden Vaughn said he was shot in the leg and his arm was grazed by a bullet.
One of the shooting victims, a Dorman High School senior, spoke to Fox Carolina about the incident. He said he was struck in the ankle and his arm was grazed in the shooting.
“We heard shots and I remember getting hit,” Kaden Vaughn said. It felt like a rock hit me. Like, I didn’t want to believe I got shot, at first, and then I got grazed in the arm and it went straight through my cup.”
Vaughn said he and another Dorman student, who was also injured, were about to leave the restaurant when the shooting broke out. He said they went to the restaurant to eat after the Byrnes vs. Dorman football game—which is something most high schoolers do after sporting events.
“Before I could even get down to the parking lot, we just heard shots and everyone started running,” Vaughn said. “I kind of went down at first to like, feel my leg. I was like, this is going to be a nasty bruise when I wake up. I ran to my truck. All of a sudden, I look down and there was a hole in my pant leg and I pulled my pants up and there was blood everywhere.”
The teen added: “There was still shots going off when I got in the truck so I didn’t want to stay. I wasn’t about to wait for nobody so I just tried to drive myself home. I remember, my right foot kind of gave out on me halfway home so I had to drive home left-footed then I got home and my parents rushed me to the ER.”
Vaughn said when he arrived at the Emergency Room, doctors found “two big holes” in his ankle. “It went clean through and left some holes, but thankfully it didn’t hit the bone or tear anything major,” he said.
The shooting happened after a fight broke out in the parking lot. One of the suspected shooters is in custody and the other two have warrants out for their arrests.
On Thursday (Oct. 18), nearly one week after the shooting, police have finally released the names of the three suspects accused of opening fire and they finally have information about the shooting.
Police said the shooting was the result of a fight that broke out in the parking lot of the Cook Out restaurant. The suspects are 16 and 18 years old, police said.
18-year-old Frederick Lee Smith Jackson was arrested and charged with unlawful carrying of a pistol, possession of a weapon during a violent crime, possession of a weapon underage, and six counts of assault/attempted murder.
Police said warrants have also been issued for 18-year-old Trevor Lamont Gist and 16-year-old Jarcoby Tramon Geter—who were both still wanted as of Thursday.
Geter was charged with possession of a weapon underage, possession of a stolen weapon, possession of a weapon during a violent crime, and assault/attempted murder.
Police are asking anyone with any information about the incident to contact the Spartanburg Police Dept. at 864-596-2065 or Crime Stoppers at 1-888-CRIMESC.
Cook Out is a popular late-night fast food restaurant in the South.
Cook Out is a popular fast food restaurant chain that is located in the following Southern states: Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, Mississippi and Maryland.
The menu features grilled hamburgers and hot dogs, chicken sandwiches, BBQ and milkshakes.
The food has a distinct “Outdoors Style” taste (i.e. it tastes like it was cooked at a “cookout,” hence the name) and the restaurant is popular with young people as a hang-out spot because it stays open past midnight (up to 3 or 4 a.m. at some locations).
The restaurant received national attention after Olympic sprinter Tyson Gay’s 15-year-old daughter Trinity was shot and killed at a location in Lexington, Kentucky in October 2016.
Keyshia Cole appears to be madly in love with her much younger boyfriend Niko Khalé.
Keyshia took Niko on vacation to Dolphin Cay at Atlantis Paradise Islands in the Bahamas to celebrate their birthdays, which are just a few days apart. Keyshia just turned 37 on October 15th, while her barely legal boy toy Niko turned 23 two days later on October 17th.
The both of them have shared photos and videos from their vacation all over Instagram. Keyshia captioned one of the photos:
My babes, @nikokhale myself and a Sea lion named Dolce … Can’t even trust a sea lion, smh ? she was all up on bae, I ain’t lying [y’all] … SHE WAS DEFINITELY A LITE WIBE
Keyshia also shared a video with her boyfriend’s new song playing in the background (FREE PROMO?!) along with a special message:
Happy BDay to My libra, I appreciate you, I love you, and thankful for your presence, Sooo So happy we were able to spend our BDays TOGETHER, You’ve also been inspiring me, to not give up on my music, in times of being discouraged, Your work ethic has been impeccable! Soo I gotta show Your new project, that you released TODAY, Some love!!!! Keep grinding Maaaa Doooooo!!!! It gets better!!! #ONMYOWN EP OUT NOW., By @nikokhale You guys check it out and let me kno what u think!?
And Niko shared his own video, this time with music playing in the background, as he and Keyshia sang to each other about “birthday d**k”:
It isn’t clear exactly how long Keyshia and Niko have been dating, but the couple first went public with their relationship on social media back in February, and they’ve been regularly posting photos of each other on their respective accounts since. She even wrote a lengthy post defending her relationship against “judgemental” people:
“Now the reason I’m posting The pepper to my salt @nikokhale is because he’s been such a sweetheart to me, and I know people have been very judgmental about our relationship but I gotta nurture what nurtures me.”
The pair apparently hit a rough back in June, however, when Keyshia deleted all of her Instagram photos and made her account private and Niko deleted most of the pics and videos of Keyshia he had on his page as well.
At the time, Niko posted a photo of himself with the caption “What’s far fetched to a dog off the leash?” insinuating that he was single before changing the caption to “My drip a little different” after folks started questioning him in the comments.
About a month later, the two were back on strong like donkey kong, as Niko updated his IG with a bunch of new photos/videos of Keyshia, captioning one pic: “N**** that’s ALL ME… she ain’t goin no where.” And Keyshia posted a bunch of photos of them enjoying the Fourth of July together with Keyshia’s 8-year-old son DJ, whose father is Keyshia’s ex-husband, former NBA player Daniel Gibson.
“I KINDA APOLOGIZE for #TROLLING yesterday, telling y’all I was ##Preggo !!!! Buuuuuuut y’all need to stop body shamming me and sayin I’m PREGNANT EVERY OTHER DAY !!!! Like seriously, it hurts my feelings … HEY @fashionnova … thought it was sweet that you all were excited about the news tho”
Over the weekend, a video surfaced showing a white woman refusing to let a black man enter his apartment building in downtown St. Louis.
D’Arreion Toles was returning home late from work Friday night (Oct. 12) when Hilary Brooke Thornton, who lived on the third floor of the Elder Shirt Lofts, demanded Toles provide proof that he lived in the building.
“Please move, ma’am,” Toles can be heard saying in the video footage he recorded of the encounter, showing the woman—who was given the nicknames “Apartment Patty” and “Hallway Hilary”—with her dog on a leash standing in the doorway at the condominium complex. “I can,” she responds. “Do you live here?”
“I’ve already answered that question,” Mr. Toles, 24, replied as he continued to try to get into the building. “Excuse me… You are blocking me into my building. This is my building as well. So, I need you to get out of my way.”
Refusing to move the hell out of the man’s way, Hallway Hilary—who said she was “uncomfortable”—then asked Toles what unit he lived in and to see his key fob. When he declined to give her that information, she remained in his path.
“If you want to come into my building…” she began before Toles cut her off: “It’s not your building, you’re not the owner. Excuse me.”
After Toles moved to pass Hallway Hilary, she followed him onto the elevator all the way to the front door of his loft.
Asked why she was following him, Hallway Hilary said “I would like to know whose friends [you are] … and why you’re here” and then she tried to flip the script and say that if he did indeed live in the building, she was just interested in meeting her neighbor. “You didn’t start off on a good note,” he said. “I don’t want no dealings with you.”
After the video went viral on the internet, it didn’t take long for social media to track the woman down and find out her place of employment.
It turns out Hallway Hilary works at another apartment building—Tribeca St. Louis Apartments to be exact—and management was far from pleased to learn that one of their employees was out here being racist.
According to a statement released from the complex, Hilary Brooke Thornton aka Hallway Hilary has since been fired.
“Tribeca-STL was recently shared a video containing a disturbing interaction that we believe is important to clarify,” the statement read. “The video did involve one of our employees, but the event did NOT take place at Tribeca-STL and did NOT involve one of our tenants. The video is showing the employee in her private life at her own residence interacting with another person.
The statement continued: “The Tribeca-STL family is a minority-owned company that consists of employees and residents from many racial backgrounds. We are proud of this fact and do not and never will stand for racism or racial profiling at our company. After a review of the matter, the employee has been terminated and is no longer with our Company. At Tribeca-STL we want all residents, guests, and visitors to feel welcome, safe and respected.”
“I need a police officer here now. I have, like 30 people standing out here and they will not leave! It’s like a riot out here. They’re destroying the outside … they’re standing outside my store, they’re videoing us and everything” — Brenda aka “Gas Station Gail.”
Wow, I can only imagine that as a 911 dispatcher, calls like this must send shivers down their spines. A call comes through and you have a frantic woman desperately pleading for help while trying to survive a violent riot.
You take down her location, locate the nearest responding officer, and then simply pray the officer can get there in time before the incident turns tragic.
And now Gossip On This has managed to get footage of the “riot” in question. I warn you, what you are about to see may be disturbing. Viewer direction is most certainly advised.
Just…wow. It’s tough to watch. I mean just go back and listen to the horrible, hate-filled speech being thrown at this poor, brave woman. “You don’t gotta be rude.” “Look at that, she’s calling the police.” And worst of all, “In a respectful manner, let’s leave.”
I can’t imagine the emotional scars those are going to leave. And those last shots of this violent gang finally leaving, politely walking away surrounded by children and pushing strollers. Scary stuff, man!
Kidding aside, this is disturbing, because it’s just one more instance in a long line of examples of black citizens being harassed for having the gall to live their lives. I mean we have Cornerstore Caroline, Hallway Hillary, BBQ Becky, Permit Patty … the list, sadly, goes on and on.
So what was the horrible thing this group was doing before “Gas Station Gail” decided the cops needed to be called? Trying to buy some drinks for their thirsty children.
They were a part of a peaceful march in North Charleston, South Carolina meant to help put an end to gun violence and were wearing anti-violence T-shirts that read “Guns Down Chuck Town.”
After marching for a mile, the group stopped by Murphy’s Gas Station to get drinks for themselves and their children when, next thing they know, the cops are being called.
The man who posted the video, Jonathan Thrower, told Yahoo Lifestyle: “A cashier came outside and said, ‘OK, I just want to make sure everyone stays on the sidewalk.’ A few minutes later, a red truck pulls up and a woman gets out and starts yelling, ‘Leave no! Leave now! I’m calling 911.”
“I felt sick when I heard the 911 call,” Thrower said. “A few kids said, ‘Every time we try to do something good, they call the police.’ I kept reassuring them that this was part of conflict resolution and why we walked that day.”
Gas Station Gail was not hurt and can continue to live her life vigilantly stopping non-white people from getting drinks, but unfortunately for her, Thrower’s last threat looks to be coming true: “We just gotta make this go viral.”
Go do your job internet. Make Gas Station Gail famous.
Blake Griffin was once one of the most exciting, explosive players to ever come through the NBA. When he and Chris Paul turned the perpetually “meh at best” Los Angeles Clippers into the must-see Lob City … well, let’s just say the duo were frequent features on Sports Center’s Top 10.
Seriously, just watch. Even if you don’t read another word, your click will be worth it if you watch this.
Still reading? Well if you want your perception of Blake Griffin to remain unchanged, I’d recommend stopping here, because what comes next isn’t pretty.
On Wednesday, October 17th, Blake Griffin learned he ain’t quite the young buck he used to be. In the first quarter of a game against the Brooklyn Nets, Blake Griffin put a move on his defender, spun into the paint, and leaped up for one of his signature posterizing dunks.
That’s Jarrett Allen, the Nets 20-year-old Center who stands at 6’11” with an ungodly 7’6″ wingspan. A wingspan he put to good use by viciously making sure Blake Griffin understands that he owns the paint now.
And this wasn’t even the first time Allen has made Blake (I’m guessing) question what his 29-year-old, injury ridden body is capable of. During a pre-season match up between the two teams, Allen shut Griffin down in the paint with this beast of a block.
So Blake, maybe it’s time you start to step away from basketball and go pursue that stand-up comedy career you’ve been eyeing for some time. That’s right, Griffin has said that he considers stand-up as a viable second career for him once basketball is over. And truth be told, he’s not bad.
How old were you when you had your first orgy? A$AP says he was 13 years old, and it didn’t go over as well as you think it would.
In a recent interview with Esquire, the 30-year-old rapper revealed that he’s known for hosting group sex events at his Beverly Hills, California home—which is decorated “in the style of Tim Burton and Wes Anderson”—on a huge custom-designed bed that cost about $100,000 to make.
“The women that I’m around are into that free-spirited s–t like me,” he told the magazine. “And why not? Let’s smoke some good weed in the teepee and have a fun time!”
But it turns out that having orgies isn’t a new thing for Rocky, who says he’s been having them since he was a middle schooler.
“My first orgy was when I was in seventh grade,” he said. “Thirteen years old. Yeah, I was at Booker T. Washington [High School] in New York City. My dad had went to jail for drugs, so my mom moved us to a homeless shelter on 104th and Broadway. Our school was like three blocks away, and they used to let us out for lunch, for 45 minutes. The first time was in this apartment building. We took the elevator to the roof, and everybody put their coats on the ground. There were like five girls and 10 guys, and we all just took turns.”
Rocky said the older guys teased him because he wasn’t as “big” as he is now—if you know what we mean.
“And hopefully you didn’t have a little dick because they’re going to tease you! At that time, I wasn’t the biggest guy, but come on, cut me some slack, I was in the seventh grade! F***ing bullies!” he added, laughing. “Nah man. I love those guys.”
Sounds like A$AP Rocky had a pretty eventful life as a teenager!
Tommie Lee from Love & Hip Hop Atlanta can add yet another mugshot to her growing collection of booking photos after she was arrested Tuesday (Oct. 16) at her daughter’s middle school.
WSB-TV Atlanta obtained an arrest warrant listing a number of things the reality star was accused of, including shoving her daughter’s head into a locker at Griffin Middle School.
According to Smyrna police, Tommie—whose real name is Atasha Chizaah Jefferson—was charged with felony aggravated assault, simple battery, first-degree child cruelty and disruption of public schools.
Tommie posted $27,000 bond Wednesday morning and was released from jail.
The reality star is no stranger to run-ins with the law, as she has been arrested twice this year alone, not counting the dozens of arrests she’s had over the years, which we extensively covered in 2016 when it was revealed that she had at least 30 mugshots. Since then, she’s been arrested at least three or four times (it’s hard to keep count, honestly).
Back in July of this year, Tommie was arrested after police said she refused orders from officers and hit a valet on the head. The valet didn’t press charges, but Tommie was charged with “disorderly conduct under the influence.”
