Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

Da Brat Ordered to Pay $6.4 Million To Assault Victim

These celebrities need to think twice before they act out! Looks like rapper Da Brat is going to have to shell out a pretty hefty sum for an assault charge from 2007.

The rapper was charged with attacking former Atlanta Falcons cheerleader Shayla Stevens with a bottle inside an ATL nightclub back in 2007.  She served over 3 years in prison for the crime, but Shayla sued her in 2009.

The case was finally settled this week as a jury awarded Shayla $6.4 MILLION to cover her injuries and past and future loss of earnings!

Now I KNOW Da Brat doesn’t have that type of money! She’s a decent rapper, but her last full album was back in 2003! She’s been seen trying to make comebacks, but nothing substantial. Definitely not $6.4 million worth! So the real question is how in the world is this woman going to pay this money?!

Chris Brown Goes Off On Twitter About Community Service Sentence










Chris Brown is pissed off, and had to let the world know! The singer took to Twitter last night, venting about the verdict at his last court hearing, which requires  him to complete an additional 1,000 hours of community service!

Earlier this summer, his probation was revoked when he was accused of that hit-and-run, but the case was dismissed. His probation was reinstated AFTER he agree to do the service! Prosecutors already allege that Chris never did his original 1,000 hours in the first place. It was unfair and dumb, yes. And Chris got on Twitter and Team Breezy and everybody else know how he felt about it!

rs_560x415-130822185437-1024.CBrown.ms.082213_copyMoments before, Chris also sent out some tweets toward rappers, though not naming anyone. “Most of the rap n—– make me sick! All political! It’s hip hop. All that gangsta s— y’all talk in y’all records…Boof!” Another tweet said, “Grow some balls and y’all not being fashionable wit y’all grandmother’s curtains on. Any problems… See my “by myself'”

I like Chris. I really, really do, but somebody needs to take his phone away from him for good. I understand needing to vent, but on Twitter yet again? Christopher, it’s time to grow up. When you do stuff like this, the only people who really sympathize with you are your stans. Maybe that’s what you want, but if you’re oh so mad about the system, how about you get involved to  try to change it? Twitter rants that you KNOW are only going to draw negative attention to yourself isn’t going to do anything! If anything that makes people hate you even more.

I checked this morning, and surprisingly, no one from Chris’ team has made him delete the tweets yet. Normally they’re on top of this stuff, because no one ever knows what’s liable to fly out of this guy’s mouth! Chris, I respect you as an artist, but I need you to get it together. Do this service, and try to move forward with your life as best as you can. Probation is up next year around this time, so try to just stay under the radar, including with your tweets!

Michael Lohan Finally Pays Up!


Michael Lohan has gotten his act semi-together, finally catching up on his back child support! TMZ got proof that Michael cut a check for $30, 422 to ex-wife Dina Lohan.

Now how exactly does a man end up having to pay somebody’s annual salary to his ex? When he was ordered to pay $1,500 a month for his minor children, and didn’t. So this is the total that Dina’s owed!

Only 16-year-old Cody is underage, but it covers now 19-year-old Ali’s time as a minor too! And Michael coughed up the cash right in time, because Dina marched down to the court house last month, asking a judge to hold Michael in contempt! So Michael, obviously, cut that check. Money vs. jail time? He knew which one to pick.

Michael told TMZ, “I admit I withheld part of [Cody’s] child support because I was angry about certain things that were happening … I was wrong and I’m making things right with Dina and my children. Dina says she’s grateful, but needs to know he’ll keep paying until Cody becomes an adult.

So Michael…let this be a lesson. Don’t be a deadbeat dad and take care of your kids! Nobody should have to threaten you to do what you’re supposed to do as a father.
