NFL Star Braylon Edwards In Hot Water

braylon-edwards

No one is safe out here in these streets with smartphones and Instagram Video!

Welp! Braylon Edwards is the next to learn this lesson the hard way. Apparently Edwards has found himself in a tad bit of trouble after allegedly attacking a bystander outside of a club in Michigan. During the altercation Edwards grabbed the man up by his ankles causing him to fall to the ground. Now this probably wouldn’t be so bad if it all wasn’t caught on tape. When Edwards realized he was being tapped, he attempted to have  the man filming the incident  to delete the footage and grabbed him up by his ankles as well.

Of course the photographer went to the nearest police station and filed a report, but only after filming his account of events. Hopefully  Braylon doesn’t face any jail time behind this, but these young celebrities and athletes need to be aware that everyone has camera phones and no one is safe. I am glad that the guys he attacked were not injured this could have been far worst had they been hurt.

DO BETTER Braylon!!!

Blogger/TV Personality B. Scott Sues BET

20130808-154337.jpg

Welp! it seems YouTube sensation, blogger,and TV personality is not too happy with BET(EBT) he has decided to sue the network.

B. Scott is a male who is known to dress in female clothes, shoes, and makeup in his YouTube videos and during many TV appearances. The problem started when B. Scott was asked to be a red carpet correspondent at the 2013 BET Awards. B. Scott reportedly sent over his clothing options to the powers that be at BET. His clothes included a flowing tunic, pants, and heels, all of which were approved by BET before the show began according to Scott.

Well, Scott showed up on the red carpet for his first segment wearing the clothes he alleges were approved by BET with his hair down and makeup on. He alleges he was abruptly pulled backstage after that segment and made to change his clothes, mute his makeup, and take off his heels.

Check out the before and after:

After changing clothes, Scott says he was still replaced by Adrienne Bailon. Scott says he was humiliated and suffered damage to his reputation,claiming BET is guilty of discrimination based on gender identity as well as sexual orientation. He is seeking 2.5 million in damages.

Now I am not sure exactly what happened behind the scenes, but BET(EBT) had to have known from watching B. Scott’s YouTube videos and his TV appearances that he dressed this way, and clearly it was not a problem if they hired him to be a red carpet correspondent. It is not like he showed up and surprised them with his attire. I will be interested to see how this pans out.

Rick Ross Sued For 90K

20130628-083848.jpg

Apparently Rick “Tit-Tay” Ross is being sued for “allegedly” not paying the bill for 3 Rolex watches, which totaled $90,000.

Johnny’s Custom Jewelry in Texas has filed suit against Ross and his Maybach Music Company. According to Johnny’s, the Rolexes include one 18K gold watch with 30CT of diamonds ($55,000), one 18K gold watch with 7CT of diamonds ($14,000), and one two-tone watch with 5CT of diamonds ($14,000).

Johnny’s says they held up their end of the bargain by delivering the watches and they just want their coins! It’s been a rough week for Ross first he calls Africa a country, now this. As much as Rick Ross raps about gettin money out here in these streets, one would think $90,000 would be nuthin. We’ve already learned that geography wasn’t his best subject in school, so I guess it’s safe to add accounting to that list as well. SMH

Hot Damn H*e!?!: Will.i.am Takes Legal Action Against Pharrell

20130626-183813.jpg

It’s safe to say popular producer/artist Will.i.am Black Eye Peas is “PRESSIN CHARGES” against fellow producer/artist Pharrell Williams.

According to Rolling Stone, Will takes issue with William’s new creative brand “i am OTHER” Will claims that he owns the copyright to the phrase “I AM”(he didn’t try this with Beyoncé). He also alleges that Pharrell’s logo is “confusingly similar”

Will’s notice of opposition argues that Pharrell’s “i am OTHER” would be used on clothes and other items, similar to
goods that bear his own “I AM” logo. Will.i.am feels this will dilute his brand.

Lawyer for Pharrell and the “i am OTHER” brand have denied these claims. Pharrell issued the following statement:

I am disappointed that Will, a fellow artist, would file a case against me. I am someone who likes to talk things out and, in fact, I attempted to do just that on many occasions. I am surprised in how this is being handled and I am confident that Will’s trademark claims will ultimately be found to be as meritless and ridiculous as I do

Will.i.am reps could not be reached for comment.

I would have to side with Pharrell on this one. I really think this could have been handled without bringing lawyers and the court system into this.

Who knew that Will.i.am was selling clothes and merchandise like that? That memo must have missed my desk *yawns*

What do you all think?
