What’s up Drama Divas and Drama Dudes! Welcome to another recap of the intriguing lives of the rich and famous. From Diddy’s arrest to Kim Kardashian’s baby gender reveal, I have you covered. So as always, grab yourself a cuppa, clear your mind and sip on a nice helpful of celebrity tea.
Diddy has been arrested for allegedly attacking an American college football coach with a kettlebell weight during an altercation. The incident was reported to have taken place at the athletic facility on the campus of UCLA, where his son Justin Combs plays football.
The 45-year-old rapper – real name Sean Combs – was taken into custody at the campus jail on Monday afternoon. He was arrested and later transferred by campus officers to the Los Angeles County Jail. Diddy has been charged with three counts of assault with a deadly weapon, one count of making terrorist threats, and one count of battery.
The charge of terrorism has been a cause of much amusement online. With memes of “Diddy The Terrorist” being shared on social media. There is also a serious discussion about Diddy being charged with terrorism, when Dylann Roof, the man who killed nine people in a church in Charleston, has not been charged with this crime.
TMZ revealed the star was screaming threats at his son’s strength and conditioning coach, Sal Alosi. An insider connected to Diddy claims that he was not the aggressor and it all began during a workout earlier in the day where Alosi was ‘riding Justin badly’ and eventually told him not to come back until the end of summer, due to a perceived lack of effort. Diddy went to the campus later on Monday to talk to Alosi because he felt like the coach had an ‘issue’ with Justin. A scuffle then broke out with interns pulling Diddy off the coach, but he broke free and allegedly struck Alosi before swinging a kettlebell at him. There is alleged security footage of the entire incident and is reportedly being sold to the highest bidder.
A document was released by the Los Angeles Courts Sheriffs Department, with the information of Diddy’s arrest and his first court date set for July 13. Jail records show that Combs’ bail was $160,000, but sheriff’s officials reached by phone said he posted $50,000 in bail.
The rap icon released a statement via his own network Revolt TV about the incident. “The various accounts of the event and charges that are being reported are wholly inaccurate. What we can say now is that any actions taken by Mr. Combs were solely defensive in nature to protect himself and his son. We are confident that once the true facts are revealed, the case will be dismissed.”
According to reports today, UCLA has dismissed charges against Diddy, however the DA could still pursue the charges. Diddy has had support from his celebrity friends including French Montana and Tyrese. Montana posted a picture of Diddy and Justin and wrote: ”I ride the same way!! #FamilyFirst”. Singer and actor Tyrese also posted a picture of himself and Justin Combs with a message of courage and bravery. He told young Combs to ”never let anyone make you feel bad about being so blessed… Haters have a job to do. There is a such thing as people purposely treating you like sh*t because of WHO your dad is. They will tear you down, attack your character, put you through waaaaayyyyy more than the others just because of WHAT you were born into… You don’t owe anyone sh*t.”
Justin Combs himself thanked his Dad on Instagram saying “I thank God for having a father that is always there for me. Love you Pops”.
While the jury is still out on which side is telling the truth. One thing’s for sure, there’s no doubt of Diddy’s love for his son.
Mimi Faust Admits What We Already Knew: The Sex Tape Was Staged And She Leaked It!
The Mimi and Nikko sex tape became even more notorious and even more successful than the Kim Kardashian and Ray J sex tape. The scene involving a shower rod had shower rods being sold out in some stores in America! How could a seemingly classy and successful single mother have let the sex tape become public in the first place? The subject has become a central theme on hit show Love and Hip Hop Atlanta.
After more than a year of lying to friends and fellow cast mates, Mimi Faust is finally admitting that the sex tape she filmed with former boyfriend Nikko Smith was planned from the very beginning. She told Us Weekly, that not only was the sex tape absolutely not stolen from Nikko’s luggage, the decision to enter into an agreement with Vivid Entertainment, the distributor of the sex tape, was premeditated and consensual for both parties.
I distinctly remember watching LHHATL when Nikko “broke the news” that his luggage was stolen and so was their home made sex tape. The sight of Mimi fake crying even then was not only cringey but suspect. As if she would find out about that kind of life changing information right at the exact moment LHHATL cameras were rolling. More to the point who films themselves with a tape recorder these days?
Mimi admitted she still gets paid for the video once every quarter, but claims that she regrets the decision. She is quoted as saying “Stupid decision? Yes. I wish I could take it back.” I find it unbelievable that LHHATL didn’t know about this blatant lie and I believe they owe the fans an apology for misleading them.
Kim Kardashian West Expecting A Baby Boy!
Kim Kardashian West has confirmed she is having a baby boy. On Father’s Day, the 34-year-old confirmed the rumours that she and Kanye West will be welcoming a son. ‘You’re such a good daddy to North & you will be the best daddy to our new son too!’ Kim posted on Twitter.
The expectant mother shared the news after she posted a photo of North reading a pop-up book on Kanye’s lap, along with the words: “Precious moments like this when we were traveling on tour with you are what I live for.” She had earlier posted: “I’m so lucky to be married to a man who is so in love with his daughter, your bond is so irreplaceable! Thank you for being such a good dad! We love and appreciate you so much! We’re so blessed to have you!”
It was rumoured last week that the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star and the rapper are expecting a son, but Kim was quick to respond to the claims. “So many rumors…we are not having twins, yes I am carrying my own baby lol & we have not told anyone the sex of our baby yet!” she tweeted, adding: “Nothing is confirmed unless you hear it from me!”
To many it seemed to confirm that Kim would be having another girl, but it seems the Kardashian as always wanted to generate her own buzz by announcing the news herself.
So Divas and Dudes there you have it! A week full of breaking news stories. Are your ready for more? Make sure you’re here this time next week for the latest in all things pop culture!
