What in the world is this?! News broke recently that Reggae artist Vybz Kartel, real name Adidja Palmer, has escaped the Horizon Adult Remand Centre along with 7 other inmates. According to the Hype Life Magazine,one guard, found dead, is said to have died from a heart attack while 12 others were wounded. Another two guards were shot with guns believed to have been smuggled into the prison. Kartel is suspected of holding at least one prison guard at gun point before escaping.
The star had been in custody since October after being charged with murder, conspiracy to commit murder and illegal possession of a firearm following the deaths of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams in August and Gregory Park in July.
To aid escapees, some prisoners had taken the officers’ clothing and car keys while one group apparently impersonated prison guards on the phone to ward off suspicion. After gaining control of the jail, the prisoners managed to escape from the prison ground using a maintenance pick-up truck at around 1.45am, local time.
One of the 7 prisoners were captured by the police while the others are still on the loose.
Kartel and the other escapees are currently listed as ‘Jamaica’s most wanted criminals’.
SMH! This is what happens when you are a corrupted individual who gains fame, has millions of fans and believe you are invincible! If he’s even found alive he’ll certainly be spending the rest of his life in prison. I’ll keep you posted.
Dr. Conrad Murray has been sentenced to 4 years in jail with his request for probation denied! The doctor, convicted of manslaughter for the 2009 wrongful death of Michael Jackson, but will be credited the 42 days he’s already served.
However, under new California law, Murray will not serve time in prison. He’ll serve his time in L.A. County Jail, of which, he’ll end up serving half the sentence.
Judge Michael Pastor also ordered Dr. Murray to pay “appropriate restitution” to the Estate and to MJ’s kids. As for an amount? Set to be determined at a later date. But Murray will pay an $800 fine a $30 court security fee, and a $40 criminal conviction assessment.

About a month ago, I reported that comedian Patrice O’neal had suffered a stroke and was listed in critical condition. Unfortunately the comedian did not make a full recovery and has passed away at the age of 41.
O’neal died Monday night his friends at the “Opie and Anthony” satellite radio show. He had been a regular guest on the show. He also appeared on ‘The Chappell Show’, and ‘The Office’.
No further details have been released on when he’ll be laid to rest.
T.I and Tiny‘s new reality show “Family Hustle” is getting ready to premiere and we had the pleasure of seeing the full trailer during last night’s drama filled ‘Baskeball Wives: LA’ reunion show.
The Harris’ gear up to show us just how they keep their family together, with T.I’s recent stint in prison, reclaiming his crown, keeping their children grounded, all the while keeping things spicy in their relationship. Check it out.
T-Boz is broke again ya’ll! I so wish this wasn’t true, but it is.
TMZ has learned that the TLC band mate filed Chapter 11 in U.S. Bankruptcy Court sometime last month.
According to docs filed last month in U.S. Bankruptcy Court, T-Boz (real name Tionne Watkins) found herself owing creditors $768,642.99 — mostly from mortgages on her $1.2 million house.
The docs don’t paint a picture of exorbitant spending — she takes in $11,700/month in income, with monthly expenses totaling $8,821.
Although she threatened to quit the show on allegations VH1 created false rumors that she cheated on fiance, Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson, Evelyn Lazada will be back for season 4 of ‘Basketball Wives: Miami’. The drama surrounding her exit apparently worked in her favor and gained her a spinoff!
Cameras will follow her and Chad (and their ridiculousness) as they prepare to walk down the aisle next summer (*yawn*). But it doesn’t end there. Evelyn’s threats also garnered her a raise while not being required to shoot as many scenes. How was she able to do this? Well, the “reality star” would like to focus on spending more time with her fiance as well as schedule her life around her daughter’s school schedule. If you remember, we watched last season as the single mom prepared for her daughter’s departure to college. Can you say DIVA?!
Eve and the ladies of the show, along with two new cast members, are currently filming in NY and Miami for their season 4 return. According to one of her recent tweets, the show will return this February.
Honestly, I think these two deserve each other. They’re both fame whores, obviously. Good luck with that!

Jennifer Hudson says flying out to visit fiance, David Otunga, at the time of her family’s murder saved her life. During an interview with Ebony, the award winning actress and singer says she had left Chicago to watch Otunga fight in a WWE match at the last minute. As a result, she was not present at her family’s Chicago home when her mom Darnell Donerson, 57, and brother Jason Hudson, 29, were shot dead in October 2008. Although it’s believed her 7 yr. old nephew, Julian King, was in the home at the time of the murders, his body was later found in an abandoned white SUV.
It was later discovered, the murders were carried out by Jennifer’s sister, Julia’s estranged husband, William Balfour.
“That’s one of the things that saved my life. Because I could have been home with my mum then. He [David] wanted me to come out to Florida with him instead of going to Chicago. I flew out to see him; that’s why I’m still here. I’ve never said that before, and I can’t believe I just said that now. But I didn’t know. He was just like, ‘I’m going to this wrestling thing and it’s in Tampa. I’m going out there now, so you can come out there and see me versus going home.’”
Kelly Rowland has jumped to friend Kim Kardashian‘s defense. In wake of the reality star’s divorce announcement and a tremendous amount of media criticism, Rowland says, she can relate, because she too almost married the wrong guy.
Back in 2005, the “Motivation” singer was engaged to former Dallas Cowboy, Roy Williams. Not long after the engagement was announced the two went their separate ways.
During a recent interview with British’s Daily Mail, Kelly reveals, “I wanted that wedding. I wanted to be married.”
“I wanted to have kids. At that time I was crazily talking about wanting five,” she said. “You can just make wrong decisions in life. That was all a part of growing up. I just think it’s important to trust your gut. I did a lot of soul-searching afterwards, and I want to be married, so dating is part of that process.”
Kyla Pratt recently revealed that she has a 1 year old daughter, Lyric, during an interview on BET’s 106 & Park. Now we have a photo of the little girl courtesy of Ms. Pratt herself.

Young Money CEO, Birdman is gearing up for the release of his fifth studio album ‘Bigga Than Life’ and has just released the visual for its first single off the project “Y U Mad”. But who stole the show? Nicki Minaj of course. Her portrayal of Lil’ Wayne is so spot on, plus her verse is sick! I’m sure Lil’ Kim is somewhere picking up the rest of her career off the floor, cuz it’s just been drop kicked even further. Even her recent diss track can’t surpass this. Sorry Kim fans. Lil’ Wayne is also featured on the record of course. Check it out.
