Two Men Shot Dead Following Meek Mill Performance in Connecticut, No Suspects in Custody

Meek-Mill-Concert-Shooting

Two people are dead following a shooting outside a Connecticut concert venue where Meek Mill had just finished his performance. Two other victims were also shot, but do not have life-threatening injuries.

Meek finished his Friday (Dec. 30) show at the Oakdale Theatre in Wallingford, CT around 11:00 PM and was walking out the venue as shots were fired. The people shot were also leaving the theater. Video footage of the scene circulated on social media.

Meek was uninjured, but two men were dead on arrival at the hospital, while two other men were taken to local hospitals with non-life threatening injuries.

Police did not release any details on the identity of the victims and are still looking for the shooter(s). It’s unknown if the victims knew each other or if they knew the shooter(s). Possible motives are also unknown at this point.

Wallingford Police Lt. Cheryl Bradley said:

“We received a 911 call from an employee at the Oakdale Theatre … The caller reported that he was outside of the Oakdale with a victim who was shot in the leg. Our units responding determined that there were actually 4 victims, 2 with non-life-threatening injuries … 2 victims determined to be deceased. Everything occurred outside of the Oakdale, it appeared to be near closing, the closing of the event. At this time, we are looking into possible leads, suspect vehicles, descriptions.”

According to Uproxx, Meek commented on the situation via Instagram before he had all the facts of the shooting.

“Yea they really trying to slow these bags up right? I’m looking at this sh*t and they’re talking two people died, two people got shot. A lie. Somebody hating [and] trying to slow these bags up because we scooping up 250s.”

However, this comment no longer seems to be on his Instagram page.

WATCH: Ronda Rousey Knocked Out by Amanda Nunes in 48 Seconds at UFC 207

ronda-rousey-amanda-nunes-fight

Down goes Frazier!!! Down goes Frazier!!! Down goes Frazier!!!

The world has been waiting over a year to see Ronda Rousey fight after her shocking loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193 in November 2015, and in the weeks and days leading up to her UFC 207 matchup with Amanda Nunes Friday night (Dec. 30), Rousey promised she was going to deliver.

But it looks like fate had other plans, because Ronda Rousey got KNOCKED THE F**K OUT. And it all happened within just the first minute of the fight!

Yes, you read that right. Ronda Rousey not only lost the match, but she did so WITHIN THE FIRST MINUTE. (YIKES!)

Amanda Nunes basically PULVERIZED Ronda Rousey from the start of the fight, and Rousey lost by TKO after a mere 48 seconds. (48 SECONDS, Y’ALL!!! WTF?!?)

To put that in perspective, here’s a short list of things that take longer than the Rousey vs. Nunez fight did:

1.) Using the bathroom — whether you’re taking a leak or a dump.
2.) Putting on a condom.
3.) Cooking minute rice.
4.) Pumping gas.
5.) Brushing your teeth.
6.) Restarting your smartphone or computer after it crashes.
7.) Taking out the trash.
8.) Washing a dirty pot.
9.) Downloading an album.
10.) Counting to 50.

The good news? Rousey earned a whopping $3 million for the fight … even though she got the life knocked out of her. The bad news? This could possibly be the last fight of her career, because there’s no coming back from this.

Watch the ENTIRE less-than-a-minute fight here:

And of course Twitter is letting Ronda Rousey HAVE IT:

This Drake/Jennifer Lopez thing is really happening and the two can’t stop packing on the PDA. The rumored couple were seen kissing and grinding on each other a recent party. We’ve got the videos to prove it.

Rumors Drake and J-Lo were dating surfaced a few weeks ago and the two basically confirmed the speculation earlier this week with the same Instagram post — a photo of the two cuddling together. However, sources close to the situation are hesitant to say the two are exclusively in a romantic relationship.

A source told People magazine they “do work on music together” and they “clearly enjoy each other on another level, too.” The source added:

“Jen loves the attention and she seems very happy to be spending time with him. Drake is very charming. He treats Jen with lots of respect. She seems very smitten.”

“They seem to really like and respect each other, but it’s early. Where it goes, we shall see. Friends of them both are hoping it becomes something, but it’s too early to say more than that.”

The source might think it’s “too early to say,” but these clips tell us everything we need to know!

Here are more clips from the night:

T.I. Not Ready to Call It Quits, Rapper Reportedly Wants Tiny Back and is Fighting for His Marriage

T.I.-Tiny-Divorce

There may be hope for Tiny & T.I. after all. Just days after news broke Tiny had filed for divorce from her husband of six years, new reports suggest T.I. is fighting for his marriage and wants Tiny back.

According to TMZ, T.I. believes Tiny has “overreacted” to their current rough patch because of “jealous friends.” Tiny filed legal documents petitioning for a divorce on December 7th and has given herself a few weeks to cool off. The entertainment site reports T.I. is now trying to talk some “sense” into her.

Though the hip-hop couple is currently not together, sources say they are still friendly and talking to each other. In fact, a source tells TMZ “things got romantic” between the two recently. However, trust continues to remain a main issue on both sides.

We recently got to see a glimpse of their friendly relationship. The two spent Christmas together and Tiny shared an adorable video of T.I. teasing their 9-month-old daughter driving and wrecking a new toy car.

Instagram Photo

Tiny’s divorce documents were recently obtained. At the time of filing, she stated the couple’s relationship was “irretrievably broken with no hope of reconciliation.” She’s also seeking custody of their children and half of all assets acquired during the marriage.

A source exclusively told Hollywood Life exactly why Tiny wanted out of her marriage:

“Tiny is no Mother Theresa, but she dealt with T.I.’s crap for way too long. She stayed longer because of the five kids, but T.I. took her for granted and just thought she would always be there and she didn’t want to be stuck in that rut forever. She wanted to be loved and not be seen as an afterthought and she is now doing something about it. It’s a wake-up call for all of them.”

T.I and Tiny have been in a relationship since 2001 and married in 2010. They have three children together. Neither have spoken publicly about their impending divorce. If all goes well, there may be nothing to tell.

Azealia Banks Reveals She’s Been Sacrificing Chickens for 3 Years, Shocks Twitter by Cleaning Blood-Stained Closest on Instagram

Azealia-Banks-Chicken-Sacrifice

Just when you thought 2016 or Azealia Banks couldn’t get any stranger, the rapper hits you with some good old fashioned witchcraft chicken sacrifices. And no, I’m not making this up. This is a real thing that really happened.

Banks caught social media waayy off guard with her latest revelation. The rapper’s Friday (Dec. 30) Instagram story showed her cleaning out her blood-stained closest where she apparently has been practicing “brujeria.” Or the Spanish word for witchcraft.

“The amount of crap that’s about to come off my floor right now guys – oh my God. Three years worth of brujería. Yes, you know I gotta scrape all this sh*t up. I got my sandblaster, my goggles. It’s about to go down. Real witches do real things.”

Someone clearly didn’t tell her American Horror Story: Coven aired in 2013 (three years ago, I may point out) and she is not the Supreme!

It’s unknown what animal she was actually sacrificing, but given the feathers, many have suggested the Harlem rapper has been slaughtering chickens in her closet for three years… and not cleaning up the mess. I don’t know much about brujeria or animal sacrifices, but wouldn’t that leave a smell that most sane people couldn’t bear?

Banks’ disturbing Instagram Story has since been deleted from her account. However, Twitter definitely had a lot to say.

*Honestly, the Church of Satan’s tweet took me out!*

2016 has been quite interesting for Banks. The rapper found herself shrouded in controversy for racist comments about singer Zayn Malik, a Twitter war with Sarah Palin, bleaching her skin, and getting into a physical altercation with Russell Crowe at his private Beverly Hills dinner party.

I still don’t understand why Banks can’t just focus on rapping and call it day. She just has to go do/say something crazy for people to pay attention to her. I can only imagine what she has in store for 2017.

Joseline also did it all without an epidural.

Joseline also posted a close-up of her daughter’s hand.

After months of rumors and speculation, a DNA test definitively proved Stevie is the father of Bonnie Bella. He’s now reportedly seeking full custody, or at least visitation rights. The two were also recently in court after Stevie claimed Joseline physical attacked him multiple times.

Meanwhile, Joseline’s delivery special has yet to have a premiere date. However, the Puerto Rican Princess did not fail to shout out Mona Scott-Young and VH1 after giving birth.

Mugshot Madness: Trey Songz Arrested for Assaulting Police Officer After Going Crazy Onstage During Detroit Concert

Trey-Songz-Arrest

Trey Songz lost his mind while onstage and got himself arrested. The singer was arrested Wednesday night (Dec. 28) and charged with aggravated assault and assaulting a police officer. He has since been released after posting a $25,000 bond.

Songz was performing at Detroit’s Joe Louis Arena when he was told that his set was running too long and needed to leave the stage by 11:30. Someone threatened to cut his mic off if he didn’t comply. The singer told the audience:

“If a ni*ga cut me off, I’m going the f*ck crazy, you understand?”

Instagram Photo

And that’s exactly what he did!

Songz began throwing microphones and speakers from the stage. Someone was hit in the head by one of the flying objects and Songz allegedly punched a police sergeant, causing a concussion. The officer was treated and released from a local hospital.

Detroit police officer Dan Donakowski said:

“He was told his set was over, that he would have to get off the stage. At which time, he became irate and started throwing objects [from] the stage; speakers, microphones, anything he could get his hands on.”

TMZ reports the singer was silent while in court and didn’t even enter a plea himself. The court entered a not guilty plea on his behalf.

Detroit reporter Koco McAboy covered Songz arrest and captured his release from police custody on camera.

Trey Songz could face a prison sentence and fines if convicted. His next court date is Jan. 5.

D.L. Hughley Uses His Platform to Belittle Debbie Reynolds’ & Carrie Fisher’s Deaths and Insult Black Women

I wish I could remember the last truly relevant thing D.L. Hughley has done, but like his stand-up routine, I’m struggling.

D.L. Hughley is a black comedian who at one point, was poised to be the next Steve Harvey (if that’s a compliment…). Like Harvey, he was on the legendary Kings of Comedy Tour in 2000, and like Harvey, he’s landed some pretty high-profile TV gigs, including his own sitcom, The Hughleys, and a short-lived stint as a talk show host on CNN called D.L. Hughley Breaks the News.

But since his show got canned, D.L. has kinda fallen off of the mainstream radar, except for when he opens his Twitter account and spouts some stupid, trying-too-hard-ass bullshit. Case in point: Hughley recently decided that the tragic death of actress Debbie Reynolds, which followed the equally tragic death of her daughter, the legendary Carrie Fisher of Star Wars fame, would be the perfect opportunity to make a point about how black women are so much tougher than white women:

Debbie Reynolds died a day after her daughter did! Black Mama’s don’t die cuz they kids do!They cry and say God don’t make no mistakes!

First off, someone’s death should not be your fodder for laughs and giggles on the internet. That is unless Donald Trump unexpectedly passes, in which case, have at it.

But furthermore, the way in which both Fisher and her mother Debbie Reynolds died is absolutely heartbreaking and tragic. That Debbie Fisher died of a sudden heart attack while on a flight back to L.A. and then that her mother, in her grief, followed soon after with a stroke while making funeral plans for her daughter, is not a laughing matter.

You would think that this is human decency 101 and that a 53-year-old man would know better, but alas, common sense ain’t common.

Secondly, if Hughley thinks he’s doing black mothers a favor by casting them as being impenetrable, unbreakable and incapable of heartache and heartbreak, he’s not. He’s feeding into some nasty, longstanding characterizations of black women that strip them of their humanity and their womanhood. Black mothers are no different than white mothers. The loss of a child is just as likely to send a black mother in a mental, emotional and physical tailspin.

But even IF it were true that black women were somehow “tougher” than white women and capable of withstanding the loss of their children better than white women, what kind of trophy is that to claim? Especially a mere few days after the passing of said white woman?

If you’re outraged by D.L.’s idiotic statements, know that you’re not alone. Several Twitter users let D.L. have it:

You know, the next time D.L. Hughley is interested in making light of someone’s death, he should with the corpse he calls his career.

Bishop Eddie Long Reemerges Looking Sickly Thin, Social Media Shocked by Pastor’s Drastic Weight Loss

Eddie-Long-Weight-Loss

What happened to Bishop Eddie Long? After months of recovering from an undisclosed illness, the Atlanta megachurch pastor returned to the pulpit looking scarily thinner than his last public appearance.

Back in September, Long admitted he was dealing with a “health challenge.” However, he never stated exactly what the illness was. Whatever the illness, it has made the Bishop virtually unrecognizable.

Long returned to New Birth Missionary Baptist Church and photos of his highly-anticipated appearance surfaced online Wednesday (Dec. 28). His emaciated look shocked social media, with some still wondering if the Bishop was battling HIV or even AIDS. (Such diagnoses are still unfounded).

Bishop Long’s weight loss was first noticed months ago, which prompted him to reveal the “health challenge.” He also said the weight loss had nothing to do with his new vegan diet, which stopped him from eating from a “slave menu.”

Questions regarding the pastor’s health were still persistent until early December. Rumors even began circulating that he has been admitted to hospice care. However, his assistant Elder April McLaughlin to the Christian Post he was “doing well.”

“No, not ever in hospice! Currently, not accepting calls but thanks for verifying the rumor.”

As some have noted, is this karma for the bishop’s alleged sexual misconduct towards young men? In 2011, for men accused Long of coercing them into sexual relationships as teenagers. The lawsuits were settled out of court. Details of the settlement and Long’s plea were not disclosed.

Police did not press charges against long as the age of consent in Georgia is 16 and all four boys were 17 or older at the time they claim the sexual misconduct occurred.

Gabrielle Union Settles Multimillion-Dollar Lawsuit Against BET, “Being Mary Jane” Set to Return for New Season

Gabrielle-Union-BET-Settlement

Gabrielle Union is getting her coins. The actress has settled a multimillion-dollar lawsuit after suing BET for breach of contract and negligent misrepresentation.

BET released a statement Wednesday (Dec. 28) announcing the amicable agreement:

“BET Networks is pleased to announce that they have reached an amicable agreement with Gabrielle Union and look forward to sharing the new season of Being Mary Jane with its loyal fans beginning January 10, 2017.”

Union sued the network back in October claiming BET and Being Mary Jane producers were trying to “fraudulent extend” her contract for Season 4 of the series, subsequently delaying a pay raise for Season 5.

According to the actress, producers had promised never to exceed 13 episodes per season. However, they attempted to extend Season 4’s scheduled 10 episodes to 20 episodes. She believes this was done to delay a pay increase of $150,000 to $165,000 per episode she is expected to receive for season 5.

Essentially, BET was trying to force her to film another full season for less pay by claiming it’s still Season 4.

Union was seeking $3 million in damages. Though further details of the agreement were not revealed, I’m betting Union is getting her money one way or another.

Being Mary Jane is set to return January 2017.
