Omarion Says He Now Believes Raz-B Was Molested, Possibly By B2K Manager Chris Stokes: “Something Traumatic Has Definitely Happened”

Raz-B of B2K has long claimed that he was sexually abused by the group’s former manager Chris Stokes.

While his bandmates had previously denied the allegation, Omarion now believes there may be some truth to matter after witnessing Raz-B’s behavior during their reunion tour earlier this year.

Omarion shared his thoughts during a recent interview with VladTV after Vlad directly asked the singer if he believed Raz was molested.

“I definitely think something happened to him. I don’t know what happened to him but I think something happened to him.”

Omarion resisted saying for certain Stokes was the one who sexually abused Raz, but conceded that “something traumatic” happened to his former bandmate and friend.

“I didn’t see anything happen [between Raz and Stokes],” he said. “So I don’t know; but the way that he responds to certain things, something traumatic has definitely happened.”

Raz joined all the original members of B2K earlier this year for a successful reunion tour.

However, he missed several dates because he didn’t feel safe around Stokes—who worked on the tour—and to “focus on his health and well-being” after being arrested for allegedly strangling his girlfriend.

Omarion is standing by his bandmate, though.

“Let me just say this about Raz because he’s a very passionate person. He’s obviously publicly and personally had to deal with some traumatic things. Trauma might be different for you but his heart and his effort has always been that.

“He’s a good person. He always tries to do his best. He just has some things like we all have that he needs to work out. I believe he’s working on that right now.”

However, he had little to say about where his relationship currently stands with Stokes.

“I have nothing to say about him,” he said after revealing the manager was once married to his “play auntie.”

The 35-year-old singer showed much maturity in the VladTV interview, most exhibited when he seemed unbothered while discussing the mother of his two children, Apryl Jones, who is currently dating his other B2K bandmate, Fizz.

Monique Samuels Files Counter Assault Charges Against Candiace Dillard After Brawl While Filming “RHOP”

If Phaedra Parks is still looking to return to the Housewives franchise, she may want to hit up one of the Potomac ladies to offer some legal advice.

Monique Samuels has filed counter assault charges against co-star Candiace Dillard.

Dillard has been charged with second-degree assault in connection to a physical altercation with Samuels back in October. She has been summoned to appear in court on February 2nd, 2020.

Samuels filed the complaint last week in response to Dillard filing the same complaint on November 7th, resulting in Samuels being charged with second-degree assault and summoned to court on December 23rd.

Samuels’ lawyer, A. Scott Bolden, said in a statement that his client filed the complaint after attempts to make amends with Dillard failed.

“My client wants nothing more than to find peace with this situation but unfortunately the ability to do so through mediation has been denied. Therefore, this summons is the proper next step for Mrs. Samuels and her right to self-defense.”

In both cases, if a judge finds probable cause, the women could be arrested on the spot during their court appearances. A conviction also carries potential jail time.

Dillard’s lawyer slammed the counter-claim, but stated that he and his client “gladly welcome” the chance to see Samuels and Bolden in court.

“I did not know innocent people filed counterclaims as a strategic move after we all know they have been charged and caught on video threatening and attacking our client!” said James L. Walker Jr.

“We gladly welcome seeing Mrs. Samuels in court! We pray she is presently getting some type of treatment for anger management.”

Dillard addressed the counter-charges on Saturday after having to cancel her performance of the national anthem at the Washington Fusion vs. Chicago Vikings game in D.C. due to a “personal vendetta” by Samuels.

“When your lackey’s have nothing better to do than to crawl around on their hands and knees behind closed doors; attempting to throw dirt on my name, fighting a losing war,” she wrote on Instagram.

🛑PLEASE READ 🛑 When your lackey’s have nothing better to do than to crawl around on their hands and knees behind closed doors; attempting to throw dirt on my name, fighting a losing war alongside their harrowing employer… For my beautiful followers who were prepared to celebrate with me at the @washingtonfusion game as I performed the #NationalAnthem, I regret that I must inform you all: I will not be able to perform on Saturday. This turn of events and my removal from the program by @sweetcookie100 by way of #moniquesamuels is for the fulfillment of a personal vendetta over ones own indiscretions. I look forward your next hat trick, saints. For my friends and followers: stay tuned for my next ❤️AMAZING❤️project featuring some incredible talents for the collaboration of a lifetime. I can’t wait to share it with you!!! #ISeeYou • • • #RHOP #BravoTV #shecamefromJesus #sleepingbeautyiswoke #candiacedillard #candiacedillardbassett #primahaircollection

A post shared by Candiace Dillard Bassett🎀😘 (@candeegal09) on

Samuels fired back on Twitter.

“You are not, never was and will never be that important to me. People with no REAL responsibilities crack me up,” she wrote in part.

Sources say the former friends got into a brawl in October during a dinner party while filming the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of Potomac. Samuels allegedly grabbed Dillard’s hair and pulled her down to the ground.

Samuels’ lawyer claims she acted in self-defense, while Dillard’s team says video footage shows Samuels as being the aggressor.

RHOP is expected to return for a fifth season sometime in 2020. However, if either lady is convicted of the assault charges, it will interesting to see if Bravo will allow that person back on the show.

“Oh My Goodness!”: Jay-Z Stunned After Watching Yo Gotti Lose $500K in Blackjack

Yo Gotti’s net worth just took a massive nosedive after the rapper lost six figures in a game of Blackjack … and the look on Jay-Z’s face as it happened was priceless.

The Memphis rapper indulged in a high-stakes game of Blackjack with Jay-Z and others at the rap mogul’s Shawn Carter Charity Gala this weekend in Hollywood and walked away with considerably lighter pockets.

Video footage shared online shows Jay-Z looking on in utter disbelief as Gotti loses $500,000 in the game after the dealer had 21.

“Oh my goodness!” Hip-Hop’s first billionaire said as the crowd watching expressed the same amount of shock and awe.

As for Yo Gotti, he tried to keep a straight face, but you can tell he probably cried in the car. $500K is a LOT of money.

Fortunately, it was all for a good cause, because Jay-Z’s inaugural charity gala—which was also attended by his wife Beyoncé, Tyler Perry, Meek Mill, DJ Khaled, Swizz Beatz, Alicia Keys, and many other big names—was able to raise $6 million for future college students.

Hov’s Blackjack tournament had a $100K buy-in, so Yo Gotti TECHNICALLY only “lost” $100K of his own cash, which all went to charity, of course, but he would have taken home a $500K jackpot if he’d won (which he probably would have donated anyway like how the winner did).

“Mass Casualty Shooting” at Family’s Football Game Watch Party in Fresno, California: Police

Police in Fresno, California say at least nine people were shot and several are reportedly dead after someone opened fire on a family who was gathered in the backyard of a home.

Details are extremely scarce at the moment, however, Fresno police say that a group of friends and family were watching a football game in their backyard when one or more people came up out of nowhere and started shooting.

No further information, including the number of people who were killed, has been made available yet. A number of the surviving victims were reportedly listed in critical condition at area hospitals.

Fresno Police Lieutenant Bill Dooley called the incident a “mass casualty” in a news conference Sunday night (Nov. 17).

“A little bit before 6 o’clock this evening, the Fresno Police Department began receiving multiple 911 calls regarding a shooting that took place outside of a residence at the 5300 block of East Lamona,” Dooley said during the press conference.

“As officers and paramedics were en route, we received more and more information on multiple victims including deceased individuals. Officers arrived on scene. What we found were several individuals deceased in a backyard.

“We do have multiple shooting victims. We’re not releasing the total number yet. They’ve all been transported to CRMC. Some are listed in critical condition. Some are listed in critical but stable condition.

“What we do know is that this was a gathering, a family and friend gathering in the backyard. Everyone was watching a football game this evening when unknown suspects approached the residence, snuck into the backyard and opened fire. The suspects then fled.

“We have no suspect information at this time, no vehicle information. But obviously we’re working on that right now. Now that we’ve stabilized the scene, officers and detectives will begin going door to door looking for surveillance cameras and additional witnesses to help us piece together what took place this evening.

“This is a mass casualty shooting. There’s no doubt about it. We are looking, probably, at this point, at nine individuals who were shot.”

This is a developing story. Check back for updates.

Dad Arrested After 5-Year-Old Son Takes Heroin to School & Tells Teacher it Makes Him Feel Like Spider-Man

A Massachusetts dad was arrested after his 5-year-old son took a bag of heroin to school and told his teacher that it made him feel like a superhero.

The Daily Hampshire Gazette reports that 29-year-old Benny Garcia is facing charges of drug possession and distribution charges and one charge of reckless endangerment of a child in the incident.

Holyoke Police Lieutenant James Albert said officers were called to H.B. Lawrence Elementary School Thursday morning after someone reported that a bag containing a powdery substance had been brought to the school.

Apparently, Garcia’s son had been showing off a small plastic baggie with a stamp of the Marvel superhero Spider-Man. When the kindergartener’s teacher asked him what was in the bag, he said that when he eats the powder, it makes him feel like Spider-Man. He said he’d gotten the baggie from his living room.

The boy was rushed to a hospital, where doctors determined he was OK.

“[The boy] loves Spider-Man,” Holyoke Police Lt. James Albert told the Gazette. “Our officers were quite taken by it all. You don’t often deal with this.”

During a search of Garcia’s home, allegedly consented to by the boy’s mom, officers found Garcia sleeping on his bed with other bags containing white powder strewn beneath him, and as he was handcuffed, more bags fell out of his pocket.

According to court docs, police found 150 bags of heroin packaged for street sale, 20 other packaged bags of heroin in a dresser drawer, 10 clear Ziploc bags filled with cocaine, two bags of heroin on a bed, 38 bags of cocaine on Garcia’s person and two glassine bags of heroin also found on Garcia.

Authorities also reportedly found four walkie-talkies and charges in the kitchen pantry.

“The officers located the same sort of baggie (of) heroin stamped ‘Spider-Man’ that the child brought to school in a dresser drawer of the defendant’s bedroom,” District Attorney Matthew Green said in court Friday when Garcia was arraigned following his arrest.

Court documents stated that Garcia became “very emotional” when he was told by officers why they were at his home and the situation involving his son.

Garcia pleaded not guilty to the charges and requested to be released on bond with an ankle monitor, however, the judge denied those requests, pending a follow-up “dangerousness hearing” scheduled for November 20th.

Officials said the boy and an infant sibling were removed from the family home by social services.

Incarcerated Rapper Tay-K Indicted for Murder of Man at Chick-fil-A in Texas

Texas rapper Tay-K has been indicted on a capital murder charge after being accused of shooting and killing a man after robbing him.

Tay-K allegedly robbed a man named Mark Anthony Saldivar in April 2017 in Bexar County, Texas, near San Antonio.

McIntyre, who was 16 at the time of the 2017 shooting, was sentenced to 55 years in prison in July of this year after he was convicted for another murder charge in a totally separate incident from 2016. The now 19-year-old is currently being held in the Bexar County Jail while he awaits trial for that case.

While on house arrest in Tarrant County in 2017, McIntyre cut off his ankle monitor and fled to San Antonio.

That’s when the teen rapper allegedly killed Saldivar and became the subject of a nationwide manhunt that inspired the release of a song called “The Race” and an accompanying music video in which he posed in front of his own wanted poster to taunt authorities.

McIntyre was captured by U.S. marshals in Elizabeth, New Jersey on June 30th, 2017—the same day “The Race” was released—after three months on the lam.

In 2018, Lucia “Lucy” Saldivar, Anthony Saldivar’s mother, filed a wrongful death lawsuit against McIntyre that named him as a triggerman in the 23-year-old man’s murder.

According to the suit, Saldivar was in the car with McIntyre and two other people when he was robbed of his “expensive camera equipment” before being forced out of the vehicle.

The suit states that Saldivar “jumped onto the hood” of the vehicle to stop McIntyre and his cohorts from getting away, however, they were able to pull into a Chick-fil-A parking lot where McIntyre then allegedly pulled out a handgun and shot Saldivar to death.

The suit accuses McIntyre of fleeing the scene after the shooting, leaving Saldivar to “die on the street.”

Jay-Z Disappointed With Colin Kaepernick for Turning NFL Workout Into Publicity Stunt (Report)

Jay-Z is reportedly disappointed with Colin Kaepernick for how he handled his NFL workout on Saturday.

XXL reports that sources close to Jay-Z are saying that that the Hip-Hop mogul is unhappy with Colin for turning “a legitimate workout” into a publicity stunt.

Kaepernick was scheduled to showcase his talent for NFL scouts Saturday (Nov. 16) at the Atlanta Falcons practice facility in Flowery Branch, Georgia.

However, just prior to the scheduled event, Kap bailed on the NFL-sanctioned workout and held his own at another location at a nearby high school.

Kap’s reps released a statement saying he took issue with a number of things, including the NFL requiring him to sign an “unusual liability waiver that addresses employment-related issues” and rejecting his standard liability waiver from physical injury.

He also didn’t like how league officials wouldn’t allow the media to attend the combine-style workout.

“From the outset, Mr. Kaepernick requested a legitimate process and from the outset the NFL league office has not provided one. Most recently, the NFL has demanded that as a precondition to the workout, Mr. Kaepernick sign an unusual liability waiver that addresses employment-related issues and rejected the standard liability waiver from physical injury proposed by Mr. Kaepernick’s representatives.

“Additionally, Mr. Kaepernick requested all media be allowed into the workout to observe and film it and for an independent film crew to be there to ensure transparency. The NFL denied this request. Based on the prior conduct by the league office, Mr. Kaepernick simply asks for a transparent and open process which is why a new location has been selected for today. Mr. Kaepernick looks forward to seeing the representatives from the clubs today.”

The NFL released its own statement about Kap’s moves, saying that that he didn’t tell them about wanting the event to be open to the media until the night before.

Jay-Z’s sources say the rapper feels as if Colin’s actions were a slap in the face, especially after he reportedly pressured the league into making sure reps from all 32 NFL teams attended (even if he did have an ulterior motive).

The reviews from Colin’s workout were mixed, with some scouts reportedly impressed with his arm strength and others reportedly saying he looked average at best.

Colin Kaepernick hasn’t played an NFL since the end of the 2016-2017 regular season after he became a controversial figure in the league for kneeling during the national anthem in protest of police brutality and racial inequality in the United States.

Kaepernick filed a grievance with the NFL in October 2017 accusing league owners of collusion to keep him out of the league.

The NFL requested to dismiss the case, but was denied, which meant the case would go to trial. However, it was announced in February 2019 that Kap had withdrawn the grievance after reaching a confidential settlement with the NFL.

Watch a replay of Kap’s full workout below:

Popeyes Customer Catches Kid Working in Kitchen of Understaffed Restaurant in Texas

Popeyes really got some explaining to do with this one.

It’s bad enough the popular restaurant chain has been making headlines lately due to customers getting into fights over their high in demand chicken sandwiches.

One man was stabbed to death after an argument over breaking in line to get one of the sandwiches. On another occasion, a Popeyes employee made headlines after body-slamming a female customer in the parking lot outside of one of the restaurants.

Then earlier this week, seven employees from Popeyes were fired for getting into an all-out brawl at one of the fast-food restaurants in Milwaukee.

And that’s not even including how they’ve failed miserably at keeping their chicken sandwiches in stock, leaving customers let down and disappointed.

Now, video footage showing a young boy working in the kitchen at a Popeyes in Colony, Texas has the fast-food chain in hot water.

A customer noticed the child helping make the sandwiches with the rest of the kitchen staff as they struggled to keep up with the orders being placed.

The customer said that the restaurant was “very short-staffed” at the time and there was a line going outside the building.

“The child was handling raw chicken before giving it to a male staff worker who went on to cook it. He was wearing an apron,” the customer told South West News Service.

The child’s father is said to be an employee at the restaurant who has since been fired.

After the video went viral, Popeyes spoke out on the incident and the fact that it is against federal and state child labor laws to have a minor working.

The chicken chain said in a statement:

“We took swift action to explore this claim with the franchisee. The restaurant owner has terminated the employee who brought their child, a minor, into the kitchen, and will fully cooperate with any additional investigations in compliance with state and federal laws.

“The safety of our guests and team is always a priority for us and we take any actions that are outside of our brand and operational standards very seriously,” the statement read.

I’m so over Popeyes and these damn chicken sandwiches. Please make it go away.

Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa Out for the Rest of the Season After Dislocating Hip

Alabama’s starting quarterback Tua Tagovailoa will miss the remainder of the season after suffering a very serious hip injury.

Tua—who was listed as a game-time decision, but started anyway—was injured with three minutes left in the first half of Saturday’s game (Nov. 16) against Mississippi State when he was brought down by two Bulldog defenders during a third-down play.

The Crimson Tide QB had a bloody nose and was seen not being able to put pressure on his right leg as he was helped off the field by trainers. The Athletic’s Stewart Mandel said the Heisman candidate could be heard “screaming in pain.”

The star QB was later airlifted back to Birmingham for CAT scans and MRIs, ESPN reported.

Alabama officials confirmed Saturday evening that Tagovailoa would be out for the rest of the season after suffering a dislocated hip.

The team released the following statement:

“Tua Tagovailoa sustained a right hip dislocation that was immediately reduced at the stadium. He is undergoing further testing to determine the best course of treatment. He is expected to make a full recovery but will miss the remainder of the season.”

This makes Tua Tagovailoa’s second major injury this year after hurting his ankle last month during the Tennessee game, which required him to have surgery and caused him to miss a game-and-a-half.

Tua returned for last week’s game against LSU, in which he threw for 418 yards and four touchdowns, but it wasn’t enough to prevent Alabama from losing the game 46-41.

Now, Alabama, currently at No. 5 in the playoff rankings, is without their starting QB with two games remaining in the regular season and the playoffs just weeks away.
