Boxer Adrien Broner Ordered to Pay Over $800K to His Sexual Assault Victim!!!

18 Dec

Adrien_BronerLooks like its time for the star boxer, Adrien Broner to put back on his gloves because a Clevland court has ordered him to empty out his cash drawer to a woman he was convicted  of assaulting in a Cleveland nightclub.

According to the victim’s civil complaint, back in June of 2018, Broner “thrust himself on to [the victim], pinned her beneath his body, and began kissing her.” The victim said she struggled to free herself but was unable to push him off of her as he stuck his tongue down her throat, kissed her neck and body, and continued pressing himself on her. One of Mr. Broner’s friends reportedly pulled him off of her, after a bystander snapped a photo of the assault.

The crime was immediately reported to the Cleveland Police Dept.

On April 8, 2019, the former welterweight champ pleaded guilty to assault and unlawful restraint, and was sentenced to probation. And as far as the civil suit goes, Broner did not appear at the hearing to contest the damages.

Welp, Broner was hit with a $830,000 judgment in the Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas on Tuesday, in connection with a June 2018 incident at The Park Social Lounge in Cleveland, according to the plaintiff’s attorney Subodh Chandra.

 

 

NBA Youngboy Gets Early Release from Probation; Plans to Ditch Louisiana for LA

15 Dec

NBA YoungBoy was released from court supervision Friday after a judge in Baton Rouge, Louisiana agreed to terminate his probation early, noting he’s complied with all its conditions over the past several months.

The judge’s decision, which came over objections from prosecutors, brings an end to the rapper’s longstanding legal troubles in Louisiana. NBA YoungBoy, whose real name is Kentrell Gaulden, is now free to do whatever he wants, including schedule performances, release music and even move out of state. And that’s just what he plans to do.

Youngboy’s lawyer, James Manasseh, said his client is planning to leave his Baton Rouge hometown and possibly relocate to Los Angeles for a bigger market and better opportunities to pursue his burgeoning career.

“Being in Baton Rouge isn’t conducive to him being able to grow and move forward,” Manasseh said after the hearing Friday, calling Gaulden a “genuinely good hearted, generous, sweet young man” who works hard for his success.

The judge had given Gaulden a suspended 10-year prison term in August 2017 and put him on probation for three years after he pleaded guilty to aggravated assault with a firearm in the 2016 shooting. But Jackson decided Friday that the rapper had served enough time under court supervision — 28 months on probation — and released him.

Rapper Nicki Minaj has been denied her request to seal her videotaped statement in an ongoing legal battle with a former stylist.

The”Anaconda” rapper whose real name is Onika Maraj, has been locked in a court fight with her former stylist, Maher Jridi since October 2018.

Jridi claimed that his suppliers  stuck him with a bill of almost $74,000 because he could not return the rented designer items as clothing options for a series of events in 2017, including Paris Fashion Week in France.

He demanded that Minaj reimburse him for the cost of the bill and deliver damages for emotional distress, but she challenged the claims and subsequently responded with her own claim, arguing that the Frenchman owes her money because she had overpaid him. $ 12,000 for his services.

Minaj was questioned about the dispute in a statement filmed in September, but then moved to block Jridi from using the images or throwing them into the media.

The legal documents obtained by Celawbrity show Maraj/Minaj’s lawyers aid: “Given the fame of Maraj as a rapper and cheerleader of world renown, she fears that the Claimant intends to publicly disseminate the discovery of confidential documents and testimony prior to the trial to embarrass or harm her.”

Jridi’s lawyers insisted that the hip-hop star was simply trying to use her “celebrity status” to get special treatment, and the judge who oversaw the case accepted it, and dismissed Minaj’s motion.

In his ruling, the judge stated that Minaj had not provided evidence to support claims that suggested that Jridi would filter the video or explain how its release could damage her reputation.

The case continues.

Fat Joe poses with Wendy Williams, Dec. 10, 2019 after appearing on her show where he discussed his show “Family Ties” and used the platform to condemn the glorification of pill popping in the wake of the death of fellow rapper Juice Wrld.

Unfortunately, his personal liability insurer, Homeland Insurance Co. of New York has told a New York federal court it does not have to cover the rapper Fat Joe in a copyright infringement lawsuit related to the 2016 double-platinum single “All the Way Up,” as the suit doesn’t fall under their agreement.Fat Joe’s smash hit was shared with French Montana.

Fly Havana accused Fat Joe of denying him credit and compensation  for his contributions to the “All the Way Up” track. But Joe claims he paid Fly Havana $5,000 in exchange for the release of all his claims to the work.

Fat Joe, believes the lawsuit falls squarely under the insurance agreement providing coverage for “infringement and is suing for breach of contract, breach of the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing against Homeland. He is also seeking declaratory relief. He believes Homeland should face punitive damages “sufficient to punish it and deter similar conduct in the future.”

WBRZ reports Davaughn was charged with second-degree murder and illegal use of a weapon, while Jeffrey and Anderson were initially charged with principal to second-degree murder, principal to illegal use of a weapon, and simple battery. On Thursday, however, a judge decided Jeffrey would be charged with murder and stand trial as an adult.

Although YoungBoy has said he only has one brotherWBRZ pointed to court records that indicate the rapper shares the same father with the Tate brothers. A spokesperson for the East Baton Rouge Police Department could not confirm that Jeffrey and Davaughn were, in fact, related to the rapper, but were aware that local media outlets were making the connection. According to WBRZ, Jeffrey Tate is being represented by James Manasseh. YoungBoy was previously represented by the same lawyer when he was allegedly involved in a drive-by shooting.

Assault Charges Against Remy Ma Dropped!!!

5 Dec

No more ankle bracelets or curfews. Rapper Remy Ma is a free woman (again). She was on travel restrictions, and had to be in the house every night by 8pm, all because she was accused of punching her “Love & Hip Hop New York” co-star Brittney Taylor in the face during an April 16 concert in New York City.

Remy Ma, whose real name is Reminisce Smith, was arrested and charged with assault back in May.  However, Remy always denied the incident even occurred. Her lawyer said her client was home with her daughter at the time of the alleged attack.

The case was dismissed Monday after prosecutors said conflicting evidence and witness accounts made the case too difficult to prove. Whats more confusing is that the alleged victim, Brittney Taylor went to Instagram after the case was dismissed and posted a cryptic message: “you’re welcome” after Remy left the courthouse wearing a pink and yellow faux fur coat with her husband, Papoose and a smile on her face.

Assistant District Attorney Juan Maldonado says the sole witness who corroborated Taylor’s account stopped co-operating with investigators.
