Trey Songz Sued By Cop for Alleged Assault

Trey Songz is still dealing with fallout from that Detroit show in 2016 where he lost his temper on stage.

He’s now being sued by a cop who claims the singer punched him in the face with a closed fist during the incident.

via TMZ:

Sgt. Robert Avery says on December 28, 2016, he was working crowd control at Trey’s concert at the Joe Louis Arena. During the performance, Trey said, “if a n**** cut me off I’m goin’ the f*** crazy.”

The reference was to the fact the venue turned off the stage lighting because the concert had run too long.

Trey ended up hurling heavy equipment off the stage and then jumped off the stage himself, picked up a mic stand, threw it and hit a photographer … who’s also suing.

Sgt. Avery arrested Trey, tried to take him into custody when he says Trey fought him and struck him in the face. The officer fell to the ground and hit his head on the concrete. He allegedly suffered visible bruising and swelling to his right temple, as well as a contusion to his left forehead … he also hurt his hip.

The cop says Trey hurled hateful comments, including, “F*** you cracker. White motherf******. F*** all you honkeys and f*** the police.”

Trey was arrested and charged with assaulting/resisting/obstructing a police officer as well as aggravated assault. He pled guilty to 2 counts of disturbing the peace.

The docs say Songz refused to cooperate during the booking process.

 

Terry Crews Is SUING Adam Venit for Sexual Assault

Terry Crews is suing Hollywood agent Adam Venit for sexual assault.

His lawsuit comes after he already filed a police report outlining the alleged assault and the investigation is ongoing.

via TMZ:

In the lawsuit, Crews says Venit stared at him “like a rabid dog, sticking his tongue in and out of his mouth provocatively.” Crews said after the alleged assault he pushed Venit away, and turned to Adam Sandler yelling, “Adam, come get your boy!  He’s grabbing my nuts.” Crews says on his way home from the event Adam Sandler called and asked if he was ok, and Crews responded that he was surprised he got molested at age 48. He says Sandler expressed shock at Venit’s behavior.

He says the next day he called his agent at William Morris Endeavor — the same agency where Venit works — telling him of the alleged assault. A few hours later, Crews says Venit called him and apologized, claiming he was just not himself that night.

Crews says he met with WME’s chairman Ari Emanuel, who apologized for Venit’s behavior. Crews says he told Emanuel he feared retaliation, but Emanuel said Venit “did not have that level of power despite his title as head of the Motion Picture Department.”

Crews says he’s suffered psychologically and says he has never felt more emasculated and objectified. He says he worries about Venit’s power in the industry and hurting his career.

Adam is already back to work at WME following a brief suspension.

Living Life Despite Drama: Kevin and Eniko Hart Do Lunch in Atlanta

 

Eniko Hart knew exactly who Kevin Hart was when she decided to marry him — so she’s accepted his apology and is standing by her husband in this alleged extortion scandal.

“Eniko is aware of what’s going on and that Kevin is not perfect,” the insider explained. “She has accepted his apology and is focused on her pregnancy and what’s to come. She has no plans for divorce. She believes Kevin is a good husband and always comes home to her.”

The biggest issue Parrish is struggling with is the massive amount of media coverage the scandal has gained.

“She is bothered that these stories find their way into the press and that people are asking her about it,” the source said. “But she does her best to ignore it all and move forward. She listens to her husband and is not going to get stressed out. She is supporting him and standing by him.”

 

The woman at the center of the Kevin Hart sex-extortion scandal has officially identified herself and is ready to set the record straight.

On Tuesday, high-powered lawyer Lisa Bloom tweeted that she is now representing “the woman at the center of the Kevin Hart scandal,” identifying her as Montia Sabbag.

Sabbag, whom Bloom writes is an “actress and model,” will address the brewing scandal during a press conference Wednesday morning, the lawyer tweeted.

According to Bloom, Sabbag “was briefly involved with Kevin Hart a month ago. Since that time, she has been the subject of false, vicious attacks on her character.”

At the press conference, Bloom says she and Sabbag “will speak out … about the true facts of this situation, and will announce their next legal move.”

The tweet comes after Hart revealed an alleged extortion attempt against him in an emotional apology video to his pregnant wife, Eniko Parrish, and his children.

In the video, posted to Instagram, Hart claimed that there was someone who was trying to make “financial gain” from his misbehavior.

Reports surfaced over the weekend that federal officials are investigating an alleged blackmail attempt that reportedly includes a “sexually provocative” video of Hart.

“I made a bad error in judgement and I put myself in a bad environment where only bad things can happen and they did,” Hart admitted in this apology video.

As the story continues to unfold, the only lesson in this situation is that regardless of how you choose to live your life out in public, remember that someone close to you will be affected by your choices. So whether there is truth to this story or not, Kevin has to learn that when you have kids, everything you do affects them. So even if there is no respect for the wife, at least respect the kids who will have to read about their dad in the news. Let’s hope something positive comes out of this matter because right now, it looks horrible.

CHARLAMAGNE THA GOD SETTLES ROLLING STONE TRANSPHOBIC DISPUTE WITH NBJC DONATION

Charlamagne tha God and Rolling Stone have settled their beef in a charitable way … teaming up to make a donation after the magazine printed a headline falsely accusing him of making transphobic comments.

We’re told the money will go to the National Black Justice Coalition. The exact amount is unknown but we’re told it’s in the thousands.

The ‘Breakfast Club’ host had fired off a legal letter to RS demanding an apology and retraction after they picked up his July interview with comedian, Lil Duval. Duval had made headlines by alluding that he’d kill a transgender woman if he discovered he’d unknowingly slept with one. RS then ran a headline saying Charlamagne made transphobic comments, which Charlamagne called defamatory since he never made such remarks. Rolling Stone later changed the headline.

In a joint statement on Thursday, Charlamagne and Rolling Stone explained: “We hope this gesture brings more attention to the very important issue of equal rights and treatment of the LGBTQ community.”

To go back for a minute,  Monique Mosley, first filed for divorce in 2013 following 10 years together and 5 years of marriage. They share a minor daughter together. At the time, she demanded he pay her alimony, child support, private school expenses, vacation costs and various other expenses.

The divorce was dismissed quietly a year later due to her dropping the case. The reconciliation attempts didn’t work and Monique filed again in June 2015.

The divorce was finalized in March following years of battling it out in court. Prior to the case being closed, Timbaland’s divorce law firm Carlton Fields slapped their client with a charging lien over unpaid invoices for their work, to the tune of $440,000. The lawyer explained he was hired by Timbaland to represent him in the divorce back in September 2015.

A charging lien is filed when an attorney is owed money and it allows them a right to any judgement won by their client at the resolution of the case.

The amount of the lien due to the firm is $440,193.90 through November 2016 for any sums due, owing and unpaid. Work has continued and the amount due to the firm continues to grow with interest.

 Kodak Black’s Lawyer Wants To Drop Him As A Client

Looks like the lawyer needs him a little baby who can listen because Kodak ain’t paying him no attention.

According to theJasmineBRAND.com, Kodak Black is accused of screwing over his lawyer representing him in a legal battle with a concert promoter – with his attorney heading to drop his client, saying he refuses to communicate with him or pay
his legal bills.

Here’s the latest: On July 14th, Kodak’s lawyer headed to court demanding the court allow him to drop his client. The rapper’s lawyer, Darren Heitner, explains he is seeking permission to withdraw as Kodak’s representative in the lawsuit. He says irreconcilable differences have arisen between Kodak and himself, which as a result it is inappropriate for him to continue representing Kodak.

He claims to have made numerous attempts to contact Kodak and other legal counsel for him, all of which have completely ignored a multitude of emails, phone calls and which precludes him from continuing to be able to rep him in the legal battle.

Further, he says Kodak is very past due and refuses to pay by way of ignoring communications. The lawyer claims he will be imposed with an unreasonable hardship if the court will not let him drop Kodak immediately.

Here’s the backstory: Last year, the rapper was sued for fraud by Florida-based concert promoters, JackBoyd Entertainment and Three Island Boyz Entertainment.

The promoters explained Kodak signed a deal with them in November 2015 to perform a Valentine’s Day concert. He was to be paid $7k (half upfront) and would perform 1 hour on stage. The promoters said they spent a ton of money on marketing and selling tickets.

Days before the show, Kodak informed them he wasn’t going to show because he was taking a vacation with his girlfriend to Puerto Rico for Valentine’s Day. They sued the rapper for the money lost on the concert and harm to their reputations.

The rapper headed to Florida court disputing they had an agreement on the concert date and claimed they agreed to determine a future suitable date to perform. He also claimed that he was never paid the $3,500 upfront he was owed. As a result, he accused the promoters of breaching the deal first and demanded their suit be thrown out of court. He was represented by attorney Darren Heitner.

Drake hasn’t had the best luck with unwanted visitors.

A few months after a woman broke into his home and stole a few beverages, a man has been arrested for hiking into his backyard.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … a man trespassed onto the Hidden Hills property Thursday evening. A security guard patrolling the site noticed him and ordered him to leave. The intruder became aggressive.

The guard wasted no time calling cops and they quickly arrived and arrested the man. We’re told the intruder told cops he found Drake’s house after looking up the address on a blog. He told cops he was there to meet the rapper.

The man had no weapons and was booked for trespassing. Drake was not home at the time. The house is undergoing extensive renovations and Drake hasn’t been living there.

At least nothing crazy happened and nobody was hurt.

DMX Charged with 14 Counts of Tax Evasion, Faces 44 Years in Prison!

Image result for dmx 2017

DMX messed with the IRS and now he faces decades in jail. He’s been hit with 14 counts of tax evasion.

via TMZ:

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in NYC says DMX has concealed his income for several years and is now about $1.7 million in the red to the IRS. According to the indictment, X had cash pouring in during the early 2000s from a slew of hits. The feds even name checked “X Gon’ Give It to Ya” in the docs.

They say he was avoiding using any personal bank accounts, and using accounts of surrogates — including business managers — and lived mostly on cash.

According to the docs, when DMX appeared on “Celebrity Couples Therapy” he was supposed to be paid $125,000 — but when he got his initial check the proper taxes had been withheld … which didn’t sit well with him. The feds say he went back to producers and demanded a new check for the full amount … which he got.

In the indictment, prosecutors say he listed his income in 2011 and 2012 as “unknown” … when in reality he’d made $353k and $542k, respectively. In 2013, he finally did report income … of $10k. That number was a little off, according to feds, who say he actually hauled in $250k that year.

If DMX is convicted on all 14 counts, he’s looking at 44 years in federal lockup.

Man….we hate to hear that type of news. Gheesh DMX.
