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?!

REPORT: Kanye West Pays $250K Settlement To Alleged Beating Victim

Reportedly, Kanye West has agreed to pay a settlement to the teenager he allegedly beat up in a Beverly Hills chiropractor office earlier this month–a nice sum of $250,000.

The incident went down after the teen called Kim Kardashian a “n—-r lover,” while they were both in the waiting room, and threw out some other ugly comments about her. Kanye later popped up in the waiting room, and reportedly punched the guy in the face. TMZ reported that the teen agreed to the $250K settlement, though at first trying to get paid in the upper six figures. He won’t go forward with any prosecution against Kanye.

Now I’m sure to Kanye, $250K is chump change, but any money coming out of my pocket for foolishness like this would piss me off. If this situation happened exactly how it’s being reported, I really don’t blame Kanye for going after the guy. It’s just sad that people adamantly try to get him agitated and violent for a payout, but that’s celebrity life. Here’s hoping Kanye has a cooler head in the future…but then again it’s Kanye, so that’s a HUGE hope.

Camille Grammer is going to be getting some serious cash flow from her divorce settlement with ex Kelsey Grammer! According to TMZ, Camille will win  roughly $30 million after this thing is over!

Sources close to the couple say that Camille and Kelsey are “very close” to signing a property settlement agreement.  The total value of the assets in the marriage, including the three homes they have on the market,  is around $60 million.  After the three homes that they own are We say “around” because a big chunk is the 3 homes they own which are now on the market.  They’re estimating when everything is sold the pot will be around $60 mil.

Camille is set to get her 50% of the assets. When she and Kelsey were married, Kelsey was completely broke (even after Cheers and Frasier). His drug problem and other bad decisions had a lot to do with it. However, Camille got them both on the right track, managing funds after to that to get Kelsey’s money back up! So she definitely deserves her piece, and I say, good for her! I am a fan of Kelsey’s work, but you have to give credit to where credit is due!

Tom Cruise Hangs Out With Suri in NYC

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For what was supposedly the first time since the Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes divorce and custody settlement, Tom was seen hanging out with his daughter Suri Tuesday.

Tom and Katie finalized their divorce and custody settlement last Monday. The actor  flew overnight from California (where he’s been filming Oblivion) to New York to spend time with his daughter.

Suri  held her dadclose as they arrived at NYC’s Chelsea Piers on Tuesday afternoon. Tom, keeping Suri protected among the paparazzi, had a smile on his face after being reunited with his daughter.

A source recently said to Us Weekly, “Katie wants to make sure the visits are in the context of him being a parent figure. He adores Suri, but now he’s afraid he won’t be able to have a close relationship with her.”

I hope that Tom and Katie come to some sort of reasonable agreement about Suri. Just because they couldn’t make it work doesn’t mean that both parents shouldn’t be in Suri’s life. Suri obviously has a lot of love for her father, and should be allowed to spend as much time with him as she can.
