WATCH: Ariana Grande Hit With a Lemon While Performing at Coachella

Ariana Grande was forced to momentarily pause her Coachella Weekend 2 set Sunday night (Apr. 21) after an audience member threw a lemon at her, hitting her in the chest as she made her way across the stage with her dancers.

Video footage shared on social media shows the exact moment the fruit was thrown at her while she was performing a song from her new album called “NASA.”

Because lemons are widely associated with Beyoncé due to her iconic Lemonade album, fans quickly pointed the finger at disgruntled members of the Beyhive, who are probably in their feelings after rumors suggested Ariana earned more than Queen Bey for her Coachella-headlining gig.

It was widely reported that the “thank u, next” singer was paid $8 million, whereas Beyoncé was only paid $4 million, however, a source later clarified to The Blast that both women were paid $8 million—$4 million for each weekend.

Needless to say, Ariana’s fans were not pleased that their fave was assaulted with a lemon while she was on stage.

After returning to the stage, Ariana briefly acknowledged the attack, saying to the crowd: “What the f**k? That’s ’cause one of y’all threw a lemon at me. Shit.”

Ariana didn’t let the rude interruption get in the way of the rest of her performance though.

She later brought out Justin Bieber as her surprise guest as the two closed her set with a rendition of Bieber’s hit single “Sorry.”

Last weekend, she brought out NSYNC (minus Justin Timberlake), Nicki Minaj and Diddy as her surprise guests.

Ariana Grande’s Coachella performance was also historic as she’s the youngest person ever to headline the annual event, and she’s also the fourth female headliner in the festival’s nearly 20-year history, following Björk (who has headlined twice), Lady Gaga and Beyoncé.

5-Year-Old Boy Called 911 to Order McDonald’s While His Grandmother Was Sleeping & Cops Delivered It

Ready for one of those “police officers doing good” stories?

Last Sunday (Apr. 13), a 5-year-old in Michigan stunned a 911 dispatcher due to his odd emergency.

“Can you bring me McDonald’s?” the little boy secretly asked while his grandmother was sleeping.

Dispatcher Sara Kuberski explained to the 5-year-old that she couldn’t bring him any food, but she did alert Officer Dan Patterson of the call and asked him to conduct a wellness check on the hungry child.

Patterson complied, but also went an extra step further.

“I’m laughing to myself—5-year-old calls dispatch and orders McDonald’s,” Patterson told ABC 13 News. “I figured, ‘Hey, I’m driving past McDonald’s on my way there and I might as well get him something.’”

Patterson arrived at the home with McDonald’s in hand, but did not get the welcome he anticipated.

“My grandma’” gonna be so mad. Can you please go away?” Iziah Hall told the officer.

While his grandmother slept, Iziah had gotten hold of a deactivated phone, connected it to Wi-Fi and called 911.

Kuberski says this is actually a common occurrence. She explained many parents give their child deactivated phones to play with, not realizing that it can still make emergency phone calls.

Iziah told news reporters that he thought it was funny when the officer showed up to door with fast food. However, Officer Patterson was also able to use the McDonald’s run as a teachable moment.

“He told him 911 is for emergency only,” Iziah’s grandmother said. “And he taught him what an emergency was: If someone is hurt or in trouble.”

They Got Her! Woman Caught on Video Throwing Puppies Away in a Dumpster Arrested & Charged With 7 Counts of Animal Cruelty

The Coachella woman caught on surveillance video footage tossing a bag of newborn puppies into a dumpster has been arrested.

The woman was identified as Deborah Sue Culwell and she was arrested Monday (Apr. 22) by Riverside County Animal Services at her Coachella home.

She remained silent as officers led her away in handcuffs.

The Riverside County Animal Services released security camera footage showing Cullen pulling up to the area behind a Napa Auto Parts last Thursday (Apr. 18) in a white Jeep Wrangler and tossing a bag filled with seven puppies into a dumpster.

A man rummaging through the dumpster shortly afterward spotted the bag and took it inside the store, which officials said saved the puppies’ lives.

“The Good Samaritan played a major role in saving these puppies’ lives,” Riverside County Animal Service Commander Chris Mayer said. “His actions were humane and heroic.”

The man reportedly left the bag outside the auto parts in plain sight so that someone would find the puppies, and eventually, a customer did.

“I noticed the bag on the floor, and they were tied up in the bag, so I immediately opened the bag a little further and I proceeded to call animal services to see what I could do with them because I couldn’t leave them there,” said the customer, who didn’t want to be identified.

Authorities said the puppies, believed to be 3-day-old terrier mixes, probably wouldn’t have survived the 90-degree heat had they not been found within an hour of being dumped.

The puppies are being cared for at a rescue organization, and as for Deborah Culwell, Riverside County Animal Services is working with Riverside County Sheriff’s investigators as well as the District Attorney’s office to build an animal cruelty case against her.

She was charged with seven felony counts of animal cruelty, one for each puppy. If she’s found guilty on all counts, she could face up to six years in jail.

Kodak Black Clowned on Social Media After Revealing Yellow Hairdo Resembling Lisa Simpson

Whether it’s his ignorant comments or his legal issues, Kodak Black has to be used to getting dragged on social media by now.

Recently, he was mocked on social media after debuting a yellow dye job and a hairdo that makes him look like an animated supervillain.

Over the weekend, the 21-year-old must have felt like his look needed a changed and enlisted “beauty influencer” Despeignes Cheveux for her services.

The end result was Kodak’s black hair being dyed bright yellow and shaped into several pyramids.

“The sh*t be crazy,” the rapper said as he modeled the look.

As he had to know it would, the bizarre hair makeover was fodder for social media.

Kodak was trolled and clowned as many noted the rapper’s resemblance to Lisa Simpson from The Simpsons and Dragonball Z’s Goku in Super Saiyan Mode.

But before Kodak was the butt of Lisa Simpson jokes, he was being dragged on social media for insensitive comments about Lauren London following the murder of her boyfriend, Nipsey Hussle.

The comments sparked a war of words with T.I. and The Game.

And just last week, Kodak was arrested at the U.S.-Canada border for drug and weapon possession. He was released on a $20,000 cash bond.

Arrest Warrant Issued for Teairra Mari Because She Refuses to Pay 50 Cent the $30K She Owes Him

Love & Hip Hop Hollywood star Teairra Mari is wanted by police after a judge issued a bench warrant for her arrest after she bailed on a court hearing in her legal battle with 50 Cent.

According to The Blast, Teairra was supposed to attend a court hearing today, and after she was a no-show, the Los Angeles judge issued a bench warrant for $5,000 which states that Mari is to be arrested if she comes into contact with law enforcement.

Teairra sued 50 Cent last year for posting a graphic still image from her sex tape, which she claimed was a form of revenge porn (considering he’s BFFs with Teairra’s ex-boyfriend Akbar, who she accused of leaking the tape), but that backfired after a judge threw her case out and ordered her to reimburse 50 Cent’s legal fees.

50 actually tried to argue for Teairra to pay his entire $161,660 legal bill, but the judge didn’t grant him the full amount, instead ordering Mari to pay $30,618.

50 has been trolling Teairra on social media pretty hard lately, and she responded by releasing a song called “I Ain’t Got It.”

50 fired back by trademarking the phrase and releasing his own line of “I Ain’t Got It” swag, including t-shirts and phone cases.

Teairra recently said in an interview that the fact that she has to pay 50 Cent anything is “injustice.”

A couple of days ago on Instagram, she posted a casting call for an upcoming music video for “I ain’t Got It.”

Blogger Tasha K Threatens to Shoot Law Officer in the Head After Cardi B Serves Her With Defamation Lawsuit Papers

Cardi B is suing two YouTube vloggers for defamation, and when she tried to server said one of them with papers, the vlogger threatened to shoot the process server in the head.

Last month, TMZ reported that Cardi was a filing lawsuit against two bloggers for saying that Cardi B is a prostitute who has herpes.

Tasha K, who runs the popular YouTube channel unWinewithTashaK, has uploaded 23 videos about Cardi B over the past 14 months that the rapper wants taken down, in the words of T.I., “quickly, expeditiously.”

According to the lawsuit, Tasha posted a video last April saying that Cardi and Offset’s daughter Kulture might be born with intellectual disabilities, inferring that Cardi was doing drugs while she was pregnant.

The other blogger Cardi is suing, Starmarie Ebony Jones, posted a video last September accusing Cardi of doing molly and cocaine and engaging in prostitution. “Just a Grammy-nominated prostitute running around spreading her herpes,” Jones said in one video about Cardi.

Taking things even further, Latasha and Starmarie even teamed up and did a video together making more allegations about Cardi having STDs and prostituting.

Cardi says in the suit that she’s never been a prostitute nor has she ever used cocaine and molly, and she also denies having herpes.

She said she’s asked the women to take the videos down and retract their statements, but since they refused, Cardi is now suing them for defamation and is seeking in an injunction to have the videos removed.

When a law officer attempted to serve Tasha Kebe with the legal papers related to the lawsuit last Thursday night (Apr. 18) Tasha went all the way off, as heard in audio obtained by TMZ.

You hear the server ID himself to Tasha and a male companion as they pull up to their home. Tasha got pissed because she says the guy was in her driveway, looking through her mail.

Although she was pissed, he does his job … handing her the docs and delivering the line, “You’ve been served.” Tasha responded by informing him she’s within her rights to “blow something in your head.”

The server assures her he didn’t do anything illegal, but Tasha wasn’t having it.

T.I. & Scrapp DeLeon Helped Bail 23 People Out of DeKalb County Jail for Easter

23 people in jail received an unexpected Easter gift after being bailed out just hours before the holiday, thanks to rappers T.I. and Scrapp DeLeon.

On Easter Sunday (Apr. 21), 23 nonviolent and first-time offenders, were bailed out of DeKalb County Jail in Georgia due to an initiative launched by New Birth Missionary Baptist Church of Lithonia, Georgia and backed by the efforts of Tip and Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta star, DeLeon.

“I was ecstatic. I was shocked. I broke down and cried,” Tyron Pollard told Fox 5 News, expressing his emotions of hearing the news he’d be home for Easter.

New Birth launched the “Bail Out” program during Lent and had hoped to raise $40,000 by Easter.

However, once T.I. and DeLeon became involved, donations poured in and the church was able to raise $120,000.

The program doesn’t just stop with posting bail.

The 23 Easter recipients—seven women and 16 men—as well as any future recipients, will each be connected with a certified mentor for weekly check-ins. And portions of the donations will be designated for college savings for children of former inmates.

“It wasn’t just: Here you’re free, you’re on your own, go to the street and do what you gotta do. They’re willing to help,” Pollard added.

New Birth’s senior pastor, Jamal Bryant, says the church is committed to offering first-time offenders a much-needed second chance.

“It’s almost like finally meeting the good Samaritan—somebody who you don’t know that you didn’t see coming,” Bryant said. “They’re appreciative to be able to press the refresh button.”

The “Bail Out” program is targeted to those jailed in DeKalb, Fulton, Gwinett and Rockdale counties.

Tip has had a very charitable 2019. He was quick to patronize Nipsey Hussle’s The Marathon clothing store following his murder, and was recently recognized by the Georgia State Capitol for his philanthropic work which includes helping low-income families and those living with Alzheimer’s and dementia through non-profit organizations.

Man Shot Alongside Nipsey Hussle Released From Jail, Charges Dropped (For Now)

Kerry Lathan, one of two men who was injured in the shooting that killed Nipsey Hussle and thrown in jail for allegedly violating his parole by associating with the rapper, has been released from jail.

Lathan was with Hussle when he was shot and killed in front of his The Marathon clothing store in L.A’s Crenshaw neighborhood on March 31st.

At the time of the shooting, Lathan had just been released from prison after serving a 25-year sentence for murder, and because he was on parole, and because Hussle (born: Ermias Aasghedom) maintained a well-known affiliation with the Rollin 60’s Neighborhood Crips, Lathan was allegedly in violation of his agreement not to be around known gang members.

Lathan reportedly met Hussle at the store to pick up clothes before reconnecting with friends and family, and sources close to Hussle said that’s the only reason why the rapper was at the store in the first place.

The two of them, along with a third man (Lathan’s nephew, Shermi Villanueva), were shot in the parking lot in front of the building.

Lathan—who suffered a gunshot wound to the back and is now confined to a wheelchair—was arrested on April 8th, just one week after the shooting and days before Hussle’s public memorial service that was attended by more than 20,000 people and live-streamed online.

According to NBC Los Angeles, Lathan was released at 3:18 a.m. early Saturday morning (Apr. 20).

“He’s very excited to be home with his family,” Lathan’s lawyer, Lauren Noriega, said Sunday in an announcement about his release.

“He’s still got the bullet in his back, and I don’t think they’re gonna remove that because it is so close to the spine, so he’s dealing with a lot of physical pain. Other than that he’s very pleased to be with his family.”

Noriega said that even though her client is now back home, and the parole violation charges initially brought against him have been dropped for now, they’re still facing the possibility of Lathan being charged in the future.

According to Noriega, the L.A. District Attorney’s Office only got Lathan’s charges dropped so that they could conduct their own independent investigation.

YNW Melly Facing the Death Penalty for Allegedly Killing His Friends

YNW Melly’s murder case has taken a serious turn as Florida prosecutors have announced that they are seeking the death penalty if he’s convicted.

Melly (real name: Jamell Maurice Demons) was charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the shooting death of two of his fellow YNW crew members back in October.

Police said after the rapper shot 21-year-old Anthony Williams (aka YNW Sakchaser) and 19-year-old Christopher Thomas Jr. (aka YNW Juvy) on October 26th, and, along with an accomplice—another one of Demons’ friends, 20-year-old Cortlen Henry (aka YNW Bortlen)—drove around with the men’s dead bodies “for a period of time” while they came up with a story to tell police.

Melly jumped into another car, and Bortlen eventually dropped Juvy and Sakchaser off at the emergency room, where they were pronounced dead.

“They arrived with multiple gunshot wounds. They were dead already,” Miramar police spokeswoman Tania Rues said at the time.

Bortlen and Melly later told police that they were involved in a drive-by shooting and also staged the crime scene to look that way.

Now, after learning the details of the case, the State of Florida has filed new legal docs stating their intent to seek the death penalty.

TMZ reports:

In the docs, the State says it believes it can prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Melly killed his friends for financial gain, the murder was especially heinous, atrocious or cruel, and he committed homicide in a cold, calculated and premeditated manner.

The State also believes Melly is a criminal gang member.

As we’ve reported … cops say YNW Melly and his friend, Cortlen Henry, shot victims Anthony Williams and Christopher Thomas Jr. in the head, torso and back. Police say Melly and Henry shot up their own car to make it look like a drive-by, and then dropped the victims off at the ER, where they were pronounced dead.

Florida is one of 30 States where capital punishment is legal.

Yikes. Going to jail for life is one thing, but getting executed is a whole other story.

For what it’s worth, in an arraignment last month, YNW Melly pleaded not guilty to the murder charges … but it already looks like the prosecution already has a pretty solid case against him.

Kenya Moore Secures RHOA Season 12 Peach After Forming “Alliance” With Cynthia Bailey & Kandi Burruss

Season 11 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta just ended with an epic shouting match between NeNe Leakes and Cynthia Baily, essentially ending their 9-year friendship. And the very cause of the duo’s fallout is most likely making a grand return in season 12.

Our friends over at Straight From The A are exclusively reporting that Kenya Moore has, in fact, obtained her peach and will be coming returning to RHOA as a full-time housewife.

We reported last week that Moore was in negotiations to return, as is if Moore was on the fence about the decision. However, STFA reports that Moore has been plotting her way back on the show since season 11 premiered.

The blog reports that Moore formed an “alliance” with Bailey and Kandi Burruss to keep Moore’s name on the show.

Burruss often stated that Moore’s pregnancy and the birth of her first child should have been captured on the show, especially since one of Burruss’ storylines was debating if she and her husband Todd Tucker, should have another child (via surrogacy).

Off camera, Moore strategically scheduled her C-section on the same night that season 11 of RHOA premiered. Though a little shady, Moore made sure that her name and the announcement of baby Brooklyn’s arrival was linked with any headlines about RHOA’s premiere.

Moore also debuted new photos of  Brooklyn on social media every Sunday, the same night that RHOA airs on Bravo.

The alliance and intricate operation to get Moore’s peach culminated during the season finale.

Bailey outright invited Moore to her event and it was Burruss who “officially” brought Moore to the party.

According to Straight From the A:

“I was told by several sources that Cynthia hoped to shoot a few scenes with Kenya and baby Brooklyn last season, but production said ‘no’. Her final option was to include Kenya on the guest list for her Peach Bellini party, which just so happened to be the season finale.”

Bailey’s move to bring Moore back on the show was seen as a form of betrayal to NeNe Leakes—who was having social media beef with Kenya at the time. NeNe felt that Cynthia and Kandi set her up by not first informing her that Moore would also be in attendance at Cynthia’s event.

NeNe stated on the finale and during the season 11 reunion that she considers her friendship with Bailey over.

With Moore returning to the show, Leakes reportedly wants someone “on her team” and is pressuring producers to allow ousted housewife, Phaedra Parks, to return to the show as well.

Moore debuted on RHOA in season 5. Frustrated producers snatched her peach after season 10 wrapped because she made filming difficult during the season and was even cut from some of the episodes, including the annual cast vacation.

Though the cast for the upcoming season has yet to be officially announced, it looks like Kenya Moore is a lock. She connived and schemed her way back on the show and it may make for a juicy season.

Season 12 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta is expected to premiere later this year.
