‘Stand Your Ground’ Florida Boycott List Naming Rihanna, Kanye West, Jay Z Refuted

28 Jun

Stevie Wonder might be the only man who’s still boycotting Florida after all.

As Celebuzz previously reported, American Urban Radio Network White House correspondent April Ryan leaked a list of A-list musicians – including Rihanna, Kanye West and Madonna – allegedly boycotting the sunshine State in protest of its “Stand Your Ground” law in the wake of George Zimmerman‘s acquittal for the 2012 killing of unarmed teen Trayvon Martin.

On Tuesday, Ryan updated her original story saying “several representatives of the artists named who say, on behalf of their clients, they are uncomfortable being identified on that list,” refuting the claims that the named celebrities are stopping their performances in Florida.

“The list including her name was surprising,” a source close to Alicia Keys, whose name was also on the roster, told us. “We are not aware of any boycott.”

In similar fashion, listed artists Jay Z and Timberlake are still slated to perform at Miami’s Sun Life Stadium on August 13.

Celebuzz has reached out to all the named musicians for comments and is currently awaiting for replies.

Read The Police Report On Justin Bieber’s Spitting Incident

25 Jun

Justin Bieber Police Report

From speeding to spitting, when it comes to Justin Bieber‘s alleged run-ins with the law you never know what’s fact and what’s fiction.

Well, it looks like one of them may be very real, at least according to the police report.

Remember when a DJ in Columbus, Ohio accused bad boy Bieber of spitting in his face?

He reportedly filed a police report last week for the alleged icky incident, but we didn’t believe it until we saw it.

According to a release obtained by Celebuzz, alleged face-spitting victim Addison Ulhaq has lawyered-up and his attorneys issued a detailed account of Ulhaq’s version of the night.

Here you go:

“In the early morning of July 13, 2013, Addison Ulhaq, a junior neuroscience major at The Ohio State University, and part-time disc jockey, waited for his turn to go back on stage at The Social Room bar and lounge in Columbus, Ohio where he had been asked to close out the night. Addison had finished his first set, but watched from the VIP area as another disc jockey performed. Also watching from the VIP area was musician Justin Bieber.

“As Addison waited to go back on stage, the Ohio State junior was confronted by two of Justin’s bodyguards who accused him of taking pictures of Justin on his cell phone. Addison had not been taking any pictures, but had merely been looking at his phone. The two bodyguards shoved Addison into a side kitchen, grabbed his phone, and searched it for pictures of Justin, but found none. Regardless, Justin approached Addison, and declared to his bodyguards that ‘he would handle it.’ With his bodyguards by his side, Justin then told Addison that ‘Your mother’s a [expletive]; your father is a [expletive]; and you are a [expletive].’ Justin then spit in Addison’s face, leaving saliva and mucus in Addison’s eye, nose, and mouth. Justin was then rushed out of The Social Room by his bodyguards.”

Megan Frantz Oldham, who represents Addison along with attorney Collin Wise, said, “Based on this incident and others recently reported in the media, it is apparent that Mr. Bieber thinks that he is better than other people, and that he is above the law. Mr. Ulhaq has taken the responsible step of reporting Mr. Bieber’s assault to hopefully prevent Mr. Bieber from engaging in future demeaning and damaging conduct.

“Regardless of how famous a person is, the law treats all people the same,” Wise added. “Mr. Bieber may believe that having bodyguards allows him to abuse another person, but the law of Ohio does not carve out special treatment for celebrities.”

Upon contacting Ulhaq’s attorneys, they said he’s reviewing all legal options, including financial compensation or a civil suit: “All avenues are open,” said Frantz Oldham.

“Addison filed the report primarily to have Justin Bieber held accountable for what happened.”

A rep for Bieber didn’t return a request for comment.

Gucci Mane Arrested For Disorderly Conduct in Atlanta: Report

5 Mar

Gucci Mane‘s rough week just took another turn.

TMZ is reporting that Mane, whose real name is Radric Davis, was arrested early Saturday morning in Atlanta, Ga. for allegedly “cursing and threatening” cops.

The 33-year-old was booked for carrying a concealed weapon, disorderly conduct and possession of marijuana.

According to TMZ, Mane was arrested just after midnight on Sept. 14 after a friend reported the rapper’s erratic behavior to authorities.

The Spring Breakers star has since been taken to a local hospital “as a precaution.”

The arrest comes some six months after Mane was arrested for assault at an Atlanta nightclub.

Earlier this week, Mane also made headlines thanks to a bizarre Twitter rant that claimed he had slept with Nicki Minaj, Keyshia Cole, Kelly Rowland and others in the past.

These Depositions In Ariel Winter’s Custody Case Are Quite Insightful

26 Feb

Depositions in Ariel Winter case

For nearly a year now we’ve seen the family feud between Ariel Winter and her family play out on a public stage.

And now that depositions have taken place it’s getting more and more sordid. From her dad describing the 15-year-old Modern Family star’s violent tendencies and her mom’s TMI account of allegedly catching her in bed with a guy to Ariel’s ex-boyfriend claiming her own mother dressed her in lingerie – they all have something to say. (That is, except Ariel, whose legal team is trying to block her deposition.)

So… just to refresh your memory, Ariel’s mom Chrisoula “Crystal” Workman apparently caught her then-14-year-old daughter in bed with her then 18-year-old ex boyfriend, actor Cameron Palatas. Since then, Ariel has alleged physical and emotional abuse against her mother who’s been under the temporary guardianship of her sister Shanelle Gray since Nov. 2012 and wants emancipation.

So here are some doozies from the depos:

This is what her mom had to say when asked if Ariel had seen her boyfriend’s… well, you know what: “I caught her in bed with Cameron, she told me she did the bow and blow and go.”

Yes, you read right, but just in case, that’s “bow and blow and go.”

And when asked if producers of the hit ABC show told her Ariel was dressing too sexy off screen, here’s her response: “Yes, and I agreed with them… I asked her constantly to please dress age appropriately.”

In Cameron’s depo taken Aug. 14 he does admit to sleeping in bed with Ariel at her house, but points the finger at Ariel’s mom: “Crystal had wanted me to sleep in Ariel’s bed.”

And what did Ariel wear to bed?: “Her mom would dress her up in lingerie,” he said.

Then there’s Ariel’s dad, Glenn Workman, who goes on to describe his “scrappy” daughter’s physical freak-outs.

“She was going through a stage where she was extremely physical, so she was doing some things that were out of character. She was beating on her mother while she was driving, getting out of the car, creating scenes,” he said.

“She was telling me to F off…,” Glenn added in his 2012 depo.

“She was beating on her mother. She wasn’t afraid of her mother… I have had to pull her off my wife.”

Kourtney Kardashian Speaks Out On Paternity Suit: ‘Scott Is Mason’s Father’

19 Dec

Kourtney Kardashian is speaking out for the first time since rumors surfaced about her 3-year-old son Mason‘s paternity.

The reality star sets the record straight in a statement to Us Weekly, laying to rest any speculation about whether Scott Disick is his father.

“After three-and-a-half years of rumors and lies being spread by an individual I met briefly at a photo shoot, I am setting the record straight that Scott is Mason’s father,” the mother of two said Thursday. “While it saddens me to have to address these ridiculous lies – especially when the truth was never in doubt – this story must be put to rest.”

Male model Michael Girgenti long asserted that he is her son’s biological father and even filed a paternity suit last week asking for joint custody, according to TMZ, claiming he slept with Kardashian after meeting her at a photo shoot in 2008.

“This individual has been selling false and fabricated stories to the tabloids for years about Kourtney Kardashian and her son, Mason. Scott Disick is Mason’s father,” Kourtney’s attorney, Todd Wilson, told TMZ.

“We are informed that this individual has been seeking to get paid to publish his ridiculous pleading,” Wilson added. “His claims are absurd and this is simply another shameful attempt to gain publicity and profit from fictional stories about my client.”

Judge Orders Chris Brown To Complete 1,000 Hours Of Community Labor

17 Dec

Chris Brown Ordered to do 1,000 of Community Labor

For all you Los Angelenos, you may actually see Chris Brown picking up trash on the side of the freeways or cleaning up our local beaches.

Why, you ask?

Celebuzz can confirm that a Los Angeles judge has ordered the “With You” crooner to complete an additional 1,000 hours of community labor.

And he won’t be stuffing envelopes or doing menial office work.

Community labor is different than your typical community service in that it requires supervision with different kinds of organizations.

The judge specified Brown’s hours will have to be performed in four specific areas – doing work for Caltrans, graffiti removal, beach cleanup or through an organization called Probation Alternative Services Work (PAWS), according to L.A. Superior Court spokeswoman Patricia Kelly.

The Los Angeles District attorney and Brown’s lawyer Mark Geragos came to the agreement in lieu of revoking Brown’s probation after he was involved in an alleged hit-and-run accident in May.

The 24-year-old Grammy winner will have until August 25, 2014 to complete the extra hours when his five years of probation comes to an end in the Rihanna abuse case.

Brown’s first progress report is Nov. 20.

As Celebuzz exclusively reported, it’s been a week of slightly better news for RiRi’s ex since he was also cleared of hit-and-run charges Thursday.
