Mugshot Madness: Dominique Williams’ Booking Photo Released After Arrest for Aggravated Sodomy

Police have released Dominique Williams’ mugshot following his arrest for aggravated sodomy for allegedly raping a woman in an Atlanta nightclub.

Earlier today, we reported on Williams’ arrest and confirmed via online arrest records that he was being held in the Fulton County Jail without bond.

Atlanta police told Channel 2 Action News that the 34-year-old turned himself in Tuesday (Jan. 29) on a warrant for aggravated sodomy.

Police said on January 20th, the day after the incident, the department received a number of calls from people who had seen the alleged assault on Facebook.

According to a police report obtained by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, a caller told police she saw a video of a woman being groped and possibly “being raped” as she screamed “No, stop!”

Officers were dispatched to the nightclub and met with security, but couldn’t locate the victim because she had already left. When officers watched the video, they realized it was recorded an hour before they arrived.

Police announced the next day that they had identified and contacted the man in the video, but his name wasn’t officially released because of the ongoing investigation. However, he chose to do an exclusive interview with the Instagram blog Gossip in the City and his name was revealed as Dominique Williams.

Jasmine Eiland, the woman identified in the video, told police she was celebrating her birthday at Opera nightclub on a Saturday night (January 19th) when the alleged assault occurred. She said someone put drugs in her drink and then sexually assaulted her on the dance floor.

The video streamed on Facebook Live from inside the club “appears to show a woman being sexually assaulted in a local nightclub,” police spokesman Jarius Daugherty said.

Police said Monday (Jan. 28) Eiland wasn’t in Georgia anymore but was cooperating with investigators.

Management for Opera nightclub said in a statement on its Facebook page that they were cooperating with the investigation.

“At this time we have met with the Atlanta Police Department and have provided them with everything they have requested,” read the statement posted on January 21st. “We will continue to aid and support their investigation in any way we can.”

Chicago Police Release Useless Pics of Persons of Interest in Jussie Smollett Assault

The alleged racist and homophobic-fueled hate crime against Empire actor Jussie Smollett has rocked the Internet and shaken the nation.

Many people are eager for the alleged MAGA-loving thugs to be held accountable for the assault. So when the Chicago Police announced on Twitter that after scouring surveillance footage, they’d be releasing photos of some “persons of interest” in the case, people were READY for justice to be served.

Unfortunately, what we were greeted with from the Chicago PD was about as helpful in solving this case as sending someone to find a needle in a haystack.

OK. So we got two blurry stills of two dudes dressed in all black from really far away with no discerning characteristics visible at all.

Chicago PD, who the HELL is supposed to identify anybody for you this damn crapshoot?

Honestly, y’all might as well just have said, “We still lookin” instead of releasing these damn shadowy figures like somebody’s really supposed to be able to go up to someone and say, “Hey, ain’t you the ones that jumped Jamal from Empire?”

But anyway, I guess, if you were in the Chicago area and you recognize those generic-ass dudes in black hoodies, leave a tip or something for the Chicago PD here.

Fake Thug Tekashi 6ix9ine Rats His Boys Out in Cooperation With Police

They say prison can break a man, and by all accounts, it would seem that the time behind bars is softening the spine of the ruggish thuggish My Little Pony known as Tekashi 6ix9ine.

According to TMZ, the so-called “King of New York” dropped a dime on his associates as indictments started rolling out like hot tortillas on a conveyor belt against his boys Kintea McKenzie (aka Kooda B), Anthony Ellison and Denard Butler.

Kooda B has specifically been named as a suspect in the shooting of Chief Keef back in June of last year, and TMZ says Kooda B was allegedly paid $10,000 to do the shooting and that Tekashi specifically singled his former associate out to police.

“Tekashi spoke with investigators and pinned him as the trigger man at the Keef shooting last June in Times Square,” according to the report.

The other gentleman, Anthony Ellison, is the man accused of kidnapping and assaulting Tekashi so it’s less of a surprise that he’d drop a dime on him.

For those who know better (mainly people with common sense, life experience, and over 30) it was obvious that Tekashi was nobody’s legit gangster so those who expected him to actually uphold the no-snitching street code (mainly those without common sense, no life experience and under 25) were fooling themselves.

To all of the rodents who used to run around doing Tekashi’s dirty work back in the day: be afraid, be very afraid. Your name might fall from Dennis the Menace’s chapped lips and the po-po will slap you with some brand new wrist jewelry you definitely don’t want.

Dominique Williams Arrested & Charged With Aggravated Sodomy of Jasmine Eiland (Report)

The man who appeared to sexually assault Jasmine Eiland on Facebook Live has reportedly been arrested and charged with aggravated sodomy.

According to Fameolous, Dominique Williams was booked Tuesday (Jan. 29) for the crime and is awaiting his court date.

A few days after the incident went viral on social media, Williams spoke with Fameolous and told a totally different account of what appeared in the video.

“She got me in this video looking like I really did something to her. She has messages between her and her friends saying that she wasn’t raped,” he said. “But, she’s not coming out and saying that she wasn’t raped. She didn’t come out and say that she was raped either. These folks are running with it like she was actually raped.”

“Nothing happened to this girl,” Williams said. “She went to the hospital and got a rape kit. I don’t know if I can say this on record, but I’m pretty blessed and I’m 6’4” and she’s short. At no point, did I bend down and try to put anything in her. There were lots of people around! Lots of people around.”

Williams also said that Jasmine was doing all of this to get back at her ex-husband.

“I guess they were going through something,” he said. “So, she’s doing all of that mess on social media to get back at her ex-husband. And now the sh** done went viral and got my name all in it and people got video of her dancing with several other people before me!”

In the part of the clip that appears to show Eiland being raped and begging for help, Williams said he was actually helping her off the floor.

“I simply helped that girl!” he said. “I was trying to help her off the floor and she’s doing all of that, ‘Help me’—all that extra stuff for no f***ing reason!”

Williams has retained the services of an attorney who released a statement proclaiming her client’s innocence.

Attorney Shequel Ross said that it was a “consensual dance” (in the beginning) and since the police weren’t called as soon as the alleged violation happened, and since Eiland participated in a twerk contest with no panties, Williams should be given the benefit of the doubt.

“I think the evidence will show otherwise… that this was not a rape,” she said.

Reports of Williams’ arrest comes nearly a week after Eiland reportedly attempted suicide.

“I have no service in the hospital, but she’s okay y’all, she responsive now,” a family member wrote on Facebook. “She has a 2nd chance at life but she still saying she doen’t wanna be here so can THE WHOLE FB just keep y’all negativity & other bs [to] y’all self please. My cousin need his wife & Jasmine Eiland needs to be here with her babies…”

L. Chris Stewart, an attorney hired to conduct an independent investigation on the matter, also gave an update regarding his client’s mental state:

#jasmineeiland is alive, despite the rumors. She will get through this. How some people can harass a woman whom they watch get assaulted on video is mind boggling. But that’s between them and God. We will get justice.

Meanwhile, an attorney not related to the case, posted a video from a bystander on Instagram appearing to show the moment Jasmine Eiland was allegedly raped.

Attorney Joshua E. Palmer wrote: “For all the skeptics. Video shows #jasmineeiland clearly passed out when the suspect appears to spit on his hand and you see the rest smh. He then carries her passed out body into another room. The video in the other room is too horrific and graphic for Ig. But you saw it. He must be stopped! Where the f@*¢ was security?!?”

Florida Rapper Jayo Sama Shot Dead in Palm Beach County: He Was 22 Years Old

Jayo Sama, an up and coming rapper from Florida, was shot and killed in West Palm Beach County on Sunday, January 27th, 2019. He was just 22 years old.

Sama’s death was confirmed via an Instagram post from Sama’s close friend, 12 Honcho, who wrote: “F**k Palm Beach F**k Florida RIP My Lil N***a I Can’t Lose Anymore ….. RIP JAY O!!!!!”

Instagram Photo

Honcho added that he regularly told Sama—a native of Fort Myers, Florida who grew up in Lake Park, just north of West Palm Beach—to leave Florida because “the hate is so real” there.

Jayo Sama (real name: Jonas Joseph) first gained notoriety with his December 2016 song “Intro” and his star continued to rise with the release of his June 2018 mixtape Zumb Freestyle with rapper Soldier Kidd.

According to the Palm Beach Post, Sama was found dead Sunday (Jan. 27) as a passenger inside of a car in the 72000 block of 72nd Way, not too far away from Palm Beach Lakes High School.

The Palm Beach Post noted in their report that it’s likely that the driver of the car Sama was in drove a half-mile from 45th Street and Haverhill Road before falling unconscious.

Sama was then rushed to a hospital where he was reportedly pronounced dead. By the time detectives arrived, according to WPBF, the driver had fled the scene.

Detectives are still trying to figure out what happened that night.

Asked in a 2018 interview about the rampant violence in Palm Beach, Jayo Sama said that there were too many young people trying to join gangs in the city.

Sama said that growing up, he spent every day looking over his shoulder, adding that he has had more than one friend who had succumbed to gun violence in the city.

A little over a month before his death, Sama released a new video for his song “You Sleep,” which The Fader described as a clip paying a “tribute to fallen loved ones.”

Sama told The Fader that the song was originally written in 2016.

“I came up with the song while I was incarcerated back in 2016,” he said. “I kept harmonizing the hook in my head over and over. When I got out, I had, to make the beat.”

Sama shared via Instagram on December 8th that his girlfriend, Sofia Veronica, was pregnant with a son.

“God answered my prayers,” he wrote on a photo taken at the couple’s gender reveal photo. “It’s a boy!! #BabyOsama.”

On her own page, Veronica posted about the gender reveal:

When news of Sama’s death went public, Veronica shared a heartbreaking series of photos of the couple together.

The caption described Sama’s death as being “so painful it feels like a thousand knives going through your heart.” Veronica added: “Y’all think y’all know jay. But y’all didn’t. Y’all think you know how I feel but you don’t.” Veronica said that she and Sama were supposed to move in together in the next few days.

Veronica ended the post saying: “RIP to a man who never let me down. Who loved me HARD and let me know every night. Who fed me when I had nothing. Who held me when I had no one. Who came home when he said he would. Who held my belly every night and told me how we were going to be the next big thing. You think you know how it feels ? YOU don’t. I love you fly high baby.”

Jeannie Mai Says She & Young Jeezy Are “Having a Good Time Together” Without Labels

When Malika Haqq posted a photo showing her with her “couple friends”—including she and her own boyfriend, O.T. Genesis, Trey Songz & Lori Harvey, and Jeannie Mai & Young Jeezy—folks naturally wanted to know what was really going on between Mai and Jeezy, because out of the three pairs, they were the only ones we weren’t already privy to.

Instagram Photo

Now, Jeannie Mai is responding to the speculation. On Monday’s (Jan. 28) episode of The Real, Mai, 40, said that while she’s been spending a lot of quality time with Young Jeezy (real name: Jay Wayne Jenkins), she can’t officially say they’re a couple because they haven’t labeled their relationship just yet.

“You guys know that I’m multi-dating right?” Mai said to her The Real co-hosts Loni Love, Tamera Mowry and Adrienne Bailon after the latter questioned her about her relationship status with the 41-year-old rapper.

“Jeezy and I hang out,” Mai continued. “He’s very special to me, so we don’t really have a label to define what it is we’re doing. We’re just having a good time together.”

Mai also let it be known that she is in no rush to settle down or make it “official” with anyone at this moment.

Real fam you know I always keep it a little too real at this table,” she said. “I promise you that when there is that one special boo, you will be the first to know from me.”

Rumors of Jeannie Mai and Young Jeezy’s relationship comes a year after Mai and her estranged husband, Freddy Harteis, split after 10 years of marriage.

Though Mai and Marteis initially said their divorce was amicable, things took a dark turn between the couple when their divorce proceedings started to become official.

Mai said in October 2018 that if she could turn back time, she would have never married Marteis. “Knowing what I know now about who I married, I wouldn’t have married him,” she said, holding backs tears, on an episode of The Real.

“It f***ing sucks. It’s terrible,” she told The Breakfast Club at the time. “You wake up with a rock in your heart and you feel like you can’t really make it through the day because it’s just so heavy. Especially when finances get involved. Especially when people change.”

Mai noted that she felt as though her and Harteis’ divorce “turned when, I would say, when money got involved, and ego.” She said: “This is where you learn how things change. People say money changes people. So does ego and so does social media. And so does the press. I think that all of that mixed in between— you really gotta keep yourself grounded.”

She continued: “One thing he always said, and I love this quote and I really believe it, my ex said, ‘You don’t truly know a person until they don’t get what they want. That’s when they show you who they are.’ You wouldn’t think that the person you were married to and were with for 10 years and taught you the quote would be the best number one example to prove it.”

That being said, it’s easy to understand why Jeannie Mai is taking things slow with Young Jeezy. She just wants to have some fun and doesn’t want to involve her emotions at the moment, and there’s nothing wrong with that.

Blac Chyna Allegedly Choked & Slammed Against Wall by Boyfriend Kid Buu During “Violent” Fight in Hawaii

Blac Chyna and her new boyfriend Kidd Buu got into a huge fight while on vacation in Honolulu, Hawaii over the weekend, TMZ reports.

According to the gossip site, the couple was staying at the Ritz-Carlton where they allegedly got into a heated argument that turned physical after Chyna accused Kid Buu of cheating.

Sources say that Chyna allegedly scratched Kid Buu and he responded by repeatedly slamming her against a wall and choking her. Someone called 911 and paramedics, as well as police, arrived at the scene. Chyna was not taken to the hospital, and no one was seriously injured, TMZ reported.

Kid Buu later took to Instagram to seemingly address the incident, writing: “I wish I could travel time and erase the day that I met you. #GetBackMyWastedTime.”

Instagram Photo

Blac Chyna was in the news earlier this month over reports that the LAPD paid a visit to her home after receiving a call claiming that she was getting drunk and neglecting her two-year-old daughter Dream Kardashian.

Prior to that, Chyna reportedly got into an altercation with her ex-fiancé Rob Kardashian’s new girlfriend Alexis Skyy.

Apparently, the altercation between Chyna and Buu could have prevented if Chyna had adhered to her custody arrangement with Rob Kardashian.

According to TMZ, Rob was getting ready to drop Dream off Saturday (Jan. 26) with Chyna, but he couldn’t get in touch with her or her nanny, who is the usual third party when they do custody exchanges.

Rob eventually realized where Chyna was once Kid Buu started posting videos of him and Chyna on social media “hanging out.”

From TMZ:

Our sources tell us Rob was not given any type of warning Chyna would be unavailable to care for Dream, and he was pissed … not because he had to care for their kid longer, but because she was missing crucial Mommy time.

Whew, chile! The mess!

Jussie Smollett Pictured With Swollen Face & Bruises After Being Viciously Attacked in Apparent Hate Crime

Jussie Smollet’s facial injuries as a result of him being viciously attacked were apparent in a picture shared on social media by Empire creator Lee Daniels.

Smollett was pictured laying in a hospital bed while on FaceTime with Daniels. The actor—who plays Jamal Lyon in the Fox series—had a cut on his right cheek under his eye and his face appeared to be swollen and bruised.

Jussie was taken to hospital after he was attacked by two men wearing ski masks late last night/early this morning, according to That Grape Juice.

The entertainment blog also shared a photo of a letter that was sent to Fox Studios in Chicago last week with cut out letters spelling out “You will die black f*g.” The envelope the letter was mailed in appeared to say “MAGA” in the top left corner.

Smollett landed in Chicago late Monday night and headed to Subway to grab some food around 2 a.m. when he was approached by two men, TMZ reported.

The attackers reportedly asked Smollett “Aren’t you that f***ot Empire n***a?” before viciously attacking him. He tried to fight them off but was outnumbered and overpowered.

The men also reportedly put a rope around his neck, poured bleach on him, and allegedly yelled “This is MAGA country!” as they left.

Smollett was treated at the hospital for injuries including a fractured rib and was discharged Tuesday morning.

The Chicago Police Department confirmed they are looking into the incident and they’re investigating the attack as a possible hate crime. They’ve also reportedly obtained surveillance footage from a Target and an apartment building close to where the incident happened.

After reports about the incident emerged, Lee Daniels was one of the first to share his support on social media.

“It’s taken me a minute to come to social media about this because Jussie, you are my son,” he said in a video he posted on Instagram. “You didn’t deserve, nor anybody deserves, to have a noose put around your neck, to have bleach thrown on you, to be called, ‘die f**got n**ger,’ or whatever they said to you. You are better than that, we are better than that. America is better than that.”

Daniels continued: “It starts at home. It starts at home… We have to love each other regardless of what sexual orientation we are, because it shows we are united on a united front, and no racist f**k can come in and do the things they did to you. Hold your head up, Jussie. I’m with you, I’ll be there in a minute. It’s just another f**king day in America.”

Jussie Smollett Beaten Up in Homophobic, Racist Attack by Trump Supporters Who Put His Head in a Noose & Screamed “MAGA”

Empire star Jussie Smollett was hospitalized in Chicago Tuesday (Jan. 29) following a homophobic, racist attack from two men who physically assaulted him, put his head in a noose and yelled “This is MAGA country.”

Our friends at That Grape Juice first broke the story. According to TGJ, the 35-year-old—who lives in Chicago while filming Empire—was attacked early Tuesday morning.

TMZ reported that the actor/singer had arrived in Chicago from New York just hours prior to the attack.

Sources close to Smollett said that around 2 a.m. he was hungry and went to a Subway to grab a bite to eat. As he was walking out of the restaurant, someone reportedly shouted at him: “Aren’t you that f***ot Empire n***a?”

Then two white men wearing ski masks viciously attacked Jussie, who fought back but was outnumbered. The men also reportedly put a rope around his neck, poured bleach on him, and as they left, they yelled: “This is MAGA country!”

Jussie took himself to Northwestern Memorial Hospital where he was treated for injuries including a fractured rib. He was discharged Tuesday morning.

That Grape Juice shared this photo of a letter that was sent to Fox Studios in Chicago with cut out letters spelling out “You will die black f*g.”

The envelope the letter was mailed in appears to say “MAGA” in the top left corner. TMZ’s sources say the letter was sent eight days ago.

The Chicago Police Department is investigating the attack as a possible hate crime and they’re trying to determine whether any nearby security cameras were able to record the incident.

Empire co-executive producer Danny Strong issued a statement on Twitter in response to the attack, which he called “racist and homophobic.”

“I’m deeply horrified and saddened by the racist and homophobic attacks against @JussieSmollett,” Strong wrote. “He is a kind and profoundly talented soul whom I respect with all my heart. The terror of racism and homophobia has no place in our society, it is the most indecent way to live. Whoever did this, do not forget that you are nothing but hate filled cowards while Jussie’s talent and activism will continue to shine a bright light on to the world for decades to come.”

20th Century Fox has also reacted to the news of the brutal assault on Smollett, saying in an official statement:

“We are deeply saddened and outraged to learn that a member of our Empire family, Jussie Smollett, was viciously attacked last night. We send our love to Jussie, who is resilient and strong, and we will work with law enforcement to bring these perpetrators to justice. The entire studio, network and production stands united in the face of any despicable act of violence and hate — and especially against one of our own.”

A number of celebs have also taken to social media to show their support for Smollett, including Lena Waithe, Kerry Washington, Viola Davis, Jackée Harry and more.
