Britney Algood: Fast Facts About Memphis Teen Fatally Stabbed During Fight

A homicide investigation is underway in Memphis following an incident in which a teen was stabbed to death while fighting another girl around her age this week.

18-year-old Britney Algood lost her life late Thursday (Jul. 5) after getting into a fight with another woman later identified on social media as Bianca Sims.

Cell phone footage showing the fight and the stabbing went viral on social media.

According to WSOC-TV, police were called to the scene of what they described as a “neighborhood fight” Friday, and when they arrived, they found two women, who witnesses said knew each other, fighting. “Once she pulled off, the victim was bleeding heavily,” one witness told Fox 13 Memphis.

Britney Algood, a recent high school graduate, was taken to St. Francis Hospital, where she later died from her injuries. Bianca Sims, the woman responsible for the stabbing,  remained on the scene and was later detained by officers, but wasn’t charged.

According to MPD, this is an “ongoing investigation” as they determine whether the homicide was justifiable.

Here’s what you need to know about Britney Algood and the stabbing incident that took her life:

Britney Algood was fighting a girl named Bianca Sims when she was fatally stabbed. The fight was apparently related to an ongoing “beef” over a boy Britney’s friend was dating.

Memphis police said two young women got into a fight near the intersection of Knight Arnold and Ridgeway around 6 p.m. Thursday evening (Jul. 5) The fight happened between two females who knew each other, police said. Those two women were 18-year-old Britney Algood and a woman later identified on social media as Bianca Sims.

At one point during the fight, Bianca pulled out a knife and stabbed Britney. Britney was taken to St. Francis Hospital by private vehicle and later died as a result of her injuries. Bianca remained on the scene and was detained by officers, but she wasn’t charged with anything.

According to one woman on Facebook, the fight was the result of an ongoing beef over the past year between Bianca and a friend of Britney’s over a boy.

“Everything started when I got with my Ex that is currently Britney’s best friend (Rossiar) boyfriend,” a woman using the name “Kash Key” wrote on Facebook. “Rossiar started wanting to fight because of the simple fact that the lil nothing a** boy wanted me. Rossiar, Rossiar’s mother, and [Rossiar’s] friend followed me and the boy to the Southaven Mall and was trying to jump me then. So of course just like anybody else folks my people [were] pissed off about it & that’s when [Rossiar’s] best friend (Britney) got in the situation. This is [an] ongoing beef since like last year.”

Cell phone video footage showing the moment Britney Algood was stabbed went viral on social media.

Video footage showing the fight and the moment Britney was stabbed by Bianca was shared on social media, where it quickly went viral.

The viral cell phone footage also showed a baby being taken from a car near the chaos at one point. In one clip, a woman can be heard saying “don’t shoot!” insinuating that someone had pulled out a gun. “She cut the sh** out of her,” says another man off-camera. “With the big knife?” the woman asks. “Yeah,” the man replies.

A man named Julius Hughes told WREG Memphis that he saw the commotion as he was driving by. “I busted a U-Turn because I was trying to figure out what was going on and I understand she was stabbed, blood was coming from everywhere,” Hughes said. “It was broad daylight. It was hot. It was broad daylight. It’s crazy out here, this area’s known for a lot of crime, it’s getting bad out here.”

Another eyewitness, who didn’t want to be named, said he was leaving work when he saw the fight. He said he saw one of the women pull out a knife and stab the other. The stabbing victim (Britney Algood) could be seen in the video footage running from the scene.

“Once she pulled off, the victim was bleeding heavily,” the anonymous witness told Fox 13 Memphis. “It’s like they were trying to jump the young lady, the victim,” the eyewitness said, adding that many other spectators were also recording the incident with their cell phones. “One girl had her camera out and was hitting the girl at the same time her friend was dying,” he said.

Someone who was with Britney Algood allegedly pulled out a gun during the fight, and Bianca Sims is claiming she stabbed Britney out of self-defense because her baby was in the car.

Friends of Bianca’s, some of whom were present during the altercation, say that she stabbed Britney out of self-defense because a man who was with Britney pulled out a gun and pointed it at the back of Bianca’s car, where her baby was sitting.

Kash Key wrote on Facebook: “The day Britney was stabbed Bianca was taking her baby to the Emergency Room, Britney and a car full of girls and a boy seen Bianca waiting at a stop sign by her house and turned around and started following her (FOR EVERYBODY SAYING “WHY WOULD SHE BRING HER BABY TO A MEET UP”). She was telling them that she wasn’t [about to] do all that [while] her baby was in the car & the dude with the gun was hanging out the back seat pointing a gun towards Bianca’s back seat to where her baby was.”

Kash Key continued: “Bianca stopped at a gas station where PLENTY [of] people [were]. They approached Bianca car, THEY OPENED HER DOOR. That is SELF DEFENSE FOR SURE. The Detectives pulled the City street cameras and seen the car who was following Bianca Ran 2 red lights trying to get to her and they also pulled the store cameras and seen that they approached her car! That’s why ITS A JUSTIFIABLE HOMICIDE.”

Kash Key also answered the question as to why Bianca had a knife in the car to begin with, and she also cleared up some discrepancies with the stories, most notably the fact that local media outlets are saying that Britney was stabbed in the head, which Kash Key said isn’t true.

“Just because we all had words in the past [does] not justify them pointing a gun towards her baby or putting her baby in harm’s way. Just like Bianca should’ve never pulled over they should’ve never been following her. Y’all can come up with however many stories y’all want to but FACTS [ARE] FACTS, and what’s done is done,” she said. “And as far as Bianca having a knife in the car she [KEEPS] a knife in the car, pepper spray too. The same reason these n****s walk around with guns every day. AND FOR EVERYBODY ASKING ‘WHY SHE DIDNT STAB THE BOY,’ the boy wasn’t the one who opened her door, Britney was! And all the news information is FALSE, Britney was NOT stabbed in the head.”

Read Kash Key’s entire Facebook post below:

Britney’s cousins say the gun was pulled out AFTER Britney was stabbed and they’re questioning Bianca’s claim that she was driving her baby to the ER at the time of the incident.

After the incident, Britney’s cousins went on Facebook Live and explained their side of the story.

They said that the story from Bianca’s people saying that a gun was pulled out at the beginning of the fight was not true. According to Britney’s cousins, the gun was pulled out AFTER Britney was stabbed.

Britney’s cousins also questioned Bianca’s claim that she was driving her baby to the Emergency Room at the time of the incident.

“She [Bianca] claims she was taking her baby to the emergency room for some odd reason. But, why you at a gas station? Oh, ’cause they was following you. Why would you pull up at the gas station, b**ch go to the emergency room, the f*** is you pulling up at the gas station for. I wanna know the real story, that’s all I wanna know.

“It’s too many stories. First of all, y’all said she was going to the Emergency Room. But, on the post, how the f*** was she going to the Emergency Room when she was supposed to ‘meet up’ with Britney. But, next thing you know, I hear Britney was supposed to be waiting on Rossia at the pool. So what the f*** really going on.”

Keyshia Cole Confirms Pregnancy: She’s Having a Baby With Her Young Bae Niko Khalé

Keyshia Cole is pregnant with her second child.

Just days after a gossip site spilled the tea that Keyshia Cole was pregnant with her young boyfriend’s baby, the 36-year-old singer decided to go on ahead and confirm the news herself via Instagram.

In an Instagram post advertising clothing brand Fashion Nova on Thursday, Keyshia confirmed her pregnancy with the use of hashtags: “#PreggoInMyFashionNovaFit #CongradulationsAreInOrder” and the weary and devil face emojis.

Gossip In The City broke the news via their private Facebook group first Sunday evening (Jul. 1), writing, “Keyshia Cole a** is pregnant by the little boy. I thought they broke up but they didn’t. She should announce it soon as she makes it past the safe zone.”

We’re not sure if Keyshia is “past the safe zone” just yet, but it looks like Gossip In The City’s report made her go on ahead and announce the news herself.

Though she didn’t explicitly reveal who her baby daddy is, it wouldn’t be wrong to assume that it’s her 22-year-old rapper boyfriend Niko Khalé, considering she just posted a photo of him with her and her son DJ on the 4th of July.

“#HAPPY4Th from Me and My loves @daniel_gibsonjr & @nikokhale,” she captioned the pic.

Khalé posted the same photo along with another one of just him and Keyshia. He captioned his pic: “Jus livin our best lives.”

Instagram Photo

DJ (Daniel Gibson Jr.) is Keyshia’s 8-year-old son with her ex-husband, former NBA player Daniel Gibson. Cole and Gibson split in 2014 and documented the aftermath of their divorce on last season of Love & Hip Hop Hollywood, which showed off a pretty awkward living arrangement (he was living in her house).

If you’ve been following Keyshia and Niko’s relationship, you’ll know that the couple broke up not even a full month ago.

RELATED: Keyshia Cole Breaks Up With 22-Year-Old Boyfriend Niko Khalé, Deletes All Instagram Photos

Back in mid-June, Keyshia deleted all of her Instagram photos and made her account private, and Niko deleted most of the pictures and videos of Keyshia he had on his page as well. He also 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 it to “My drip a little different” after folks started asking him questions in the comments.

But it looks like all of that is in the past for the couple, who have only been dating for a few months. Niko has even updated his IG with a bunch of new photos/videos of Keyshia. “N**** that’s ALL ME… she ain’t goin no where,” he captioned one pic. He even posted a video of the two of them enjoying some of his new music:

Instagram Photo

Keyshia and Niko first went public with their relationship on social media back in February, and the two have regularly posted 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.”

Mugshot Madness: Chris Brown Arrested for Felony Battery Warrant After Concert in Florida

Brown had a show at the Coral Sky Amphitheater in West Palm Beach Thursday, and several officers were waiting there for him to finish. When he exited the stage, he was promptly arrested.

According to PBSO officials, the singer posed for a mugshot (above) and was released after paying a $2,000 bond.

It isn’t clear what the battery warrant was related to, but we’ll update you as soon as we have more information.

Oh Lawd, Not Again: Kirk Frost Is Reportedly Having ANOTHER BABY With a Woman Who is NOT Rasheeda

Here we go again. The word on the curb is that Kirk Frost is having ANOTHER baby with ANOTHER woman who is NOT Rasheeda.

Yes, you read that right. After spending the Season 7 of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta in the biggest dog house ever after it was “confirmed” that he fathered a lovechild with former stripper Jasmine Washington, it seemed like Kirk was getting back on his wife Rasheeda’s good side. I mean, she did let him back in the house after all, even though she “cut it in half” with the help of blue painter’s tape. But still… progress, right?

And now, reports (via Gossip In The City) are floating around the internet that all of that progress may be completely thrown out the window … because he’s STILL cheating on Rasheeda, and not only that, but ANOTHER stripper is carrying his child.

A screenshot posted on GITC’s Instagram shows a Facebook post from someone making the not-so-shocking claims. “Kirk cheated on Rasheeda AGAIN… If she ain’t sick of him I SHO AM!!” the post reads. “Some girl on IG posted her baby saying he the father, she a stripper like Jasmine, know he like those type.”

Does this story sound familiar to you? Well, it should, because we spent the majority of 2017 trying to figure out whether or not Jasmine Washington’s son was Kirk’s, and according to a paternity test, he IS the father of Baby Kannon. Rasheeda filed for divorce, and after Kirk’s mother passed away, the pair grew closer and reconciled.

On a recent episode of LHHATL, Kirk was tricked into meeting Baby Kannon at a park by his daughter Kelsie.

A source revealed to Hollywood Life last August that Kirk and Rasheeda’s relationship was repaired with the help of couple’s counseling. “Rasheeda and Kirk are in couples counseling and it’s amazing how much it’s helping,” the tipster said. “They’re going very deep and Rasheeda says she’s actually starting to understand Kirk better and why he does the crazy things that he does. He’s not off the hook, but it’s easier for her to find forgiveness for him.”

But if Kirk has indeed gotten another stripper pregnant, I don’t think any form of couple’s therapy is going to repair their marriage this time around. In fact, I have a feeling this is going to be Rasheeda’s exact reaction:

Or at least it should be.

Police Issue Arrest Warrant for Robert Allen, Second Person of Interest in XXXTentacion’s Murder

Police are still looking for the men responsible for the murder of Florida rapper XXXTentacion, and while they already have one suspect in custody, two others remain at large.

According to the Sun-Sentinel, a Broward County judge has signed off on a warrant for the arrest of 22-year-old Robert Allen of Ft. Lauderdale. The warrant was signed Tuesday (Jul. 3), 10 days after Allen was named a person of interest in the killing of XXXTentacion.

Allen was reportedly seen in surveillance video footage at RIVA Motorsports in Deerfield Beach on June 18th—the same day XXXTentacion was shopping there and was later shot and killed. Allen’s arrest warrant, which isn’t related to the homicide investigation, was issued June 28th.

The Broward County Sheriff’s Office said that Allen has been on probation for possessing PVP, also known as “flakka,” and for carrying a concealed firearm. According to his arrest warrant, he has “failed to make every effort” to find a job and owes the state more than $3,000 for community supervision.

XXX was behind the wheel of his black BMW i8 when he was killed. An SUV blocked X’s car as it was leaving RIVA Motorsports’ parking lot, and two gunmen—one in a black mask, the other wearing a red mask—jumped out of the SUV and struggled with the artist, whose real name was Jahseh Dwayne Ricardo Onfroy, before shooting him multiple times and making off with his Louis Vuitton bag filled with cash.

22-year-old Dedrick Devonshay Williams of Pompano Beach, Florida, the driver of the SUV, was arrested June 20th—just two days after XXXTentacion’s murder—and faces a premeditated murder charge. Police don’t believe he was the person who pulled the trigger and they are searching for two other suspects Wiliams is being held without bond at the Broward County main jail facility. An internet rumor suggested he was raped and assaulted in the jail’s shower, but officials at the jail debunked that story, saying nothing of the sort happened.

XXXTentacion was laid to rest last week in a private mausoleum following two services—a public memorial attended by thousands of fans at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, FL and a private funeral service attended by family, close friends and industry peers.

His mother, Cleopatra Bernard, shared on Instagram a photo of his mausoleum, which is located in Gardens Memorial Park in Boca Raton, Florida.

XXXTentacion’s Mother Shares Photo of Rapper’s Burial Site, a HUGE Private Mausoleum

XXXTentacion’s mother made sure her late son was put away VERY nicely.

Following XXXTentacion’s private funeral service last Thursday, his mother, Cleopatra Bernard, shared a photo on her Instagram page of XXX’s final resting place. In lieu of a traditional burial site, Cleopatra opted for a massive private mausoleum for X.

Instagram Photo

“My guardian angel,” Bernard wrote in the photo’s caption on IG. The mausoleum bears XXXTentacion’s name across the top in large font, along with his real name, Jahseh D. Onfroy below in a smaller font.

The grey and black monument was flanked by red, black and silver flowers—the same flowers that were placed near his casket at his public memorial and private funeral.

Fans have said that XXX’s burial site is located in Gardens Memorial Park in Boca Raton, Florida and his mother plans on hiring security to guard it 24/7.

XXXTentacion was shot and killed during an apparent robbery attempt outside of a motorcycle dealership in Deerfield Beach, Florida on June 18th. So far, police have made one arrest related to the shooting. 22-year-old Dedrick Williams is currently being held on a first-degree murder charge at the Broward County Jail without bond while his two accomplices are at large.

Last week, the music video for XXX’s latest single “SAD!” was posthumously released, which eerily depicted the rapper attending his own funeral. The video was reportedly shot weeks before his murder.

“SAD!” skyrocketed to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 marking the first time an artist has posthumously reached the top of the chart since Notorious B.I.G. in 1997. Cardi B’s “I Like It” (ft. Bad Bunny & J Balvin) knocked X’s single down to No. 2 this week.

The Internet Is Going Crazy Over LeBron Signing With the Lakers: Check Out the Hilarious Memes

Unless you live under the world’s biggest rock, by now you’ve already heard that LeBron James will spend the next four years of his professional basketball career as a member of the Los Angeles Lakers and will be getting paid $154 million to do so.

As expected, the internet went NUTS over the news and took no time posting hilarious memes, jokes and GIFs all over social media, especially Twitter. And while most of the memes focused on LeBron’s “Decision 2018,” a fair amount of them also focused on Lance Stephen also agreeing to join LeBron and his new quest to add to his collection of championship rings. Kobe Bryant, J.R. Smith and Lonzo Ball also made a few appearances.

Check out some of the best/funniest reactions to LeBron James joining the L.A. Lakers below:

DeMarcus Cousins Joins Golden State Warriors With 1-Year $5.3 Million Deal

DeMarcus Cousins must really want a ring because, in a surprise move, the free agent center has taken a massive pay cut to sign with the Golden State Warriors.

According to ESPN, Cousin’s new contract with the Warriors is only for a year and is worth $5.3 million—which is much less than the nearly $18 million he got in the 2017-18 season for playing with the New Orleans Pelicans. So it looks like Cousins, who has battled injury issues and has played in less than 70 games combined over the past two seasons, values winning a championship over making money. After making more than

ESPN reports:

For the Warriors, already with a staggering lineup of All-NBA talent, the addition of Cousins gives him even more time to comfortably recover from his injury prior to returning to the court next season.

Sources told ESPN’s Chris Haynes that Cousins had narrowed his choices down to Golden State and Boston.

News of Cousins joining the Warriors comes barely 24 hours after news broke that LeBron James had signed with the Lakers for a four-year $154 million contract.

Steph Curry seems pretty excited, as does Andre Iguodala, who both welcomed Cousins to the team with open arms.

LeBron may be regretting joining the Lakers now though, because not only does his team have to play the Warriors four times per season, but they could also end up meeting in the Western Conference Finals. If he doesn’t round up enough key players to take on the Warriors, he might miss out on playing in the Finals for the first time since 2010.

Cousins is expected to start back playing by December/January, which gives him more than enough time to prepare for the 2019 NBA Playoffs
