Saturday evening after Amar’e Studemire’s dinner at Justins, I decided to club hop with my girl Rovella from TheAlmostFamous Showcase. We hit up Eros and just a few moments later Shawty Lo came in followed by Fabolous and his crew. I was chillin in the background as I always do and I wasn’t planning on writing about the event at all since they were tripping at the door. So as I did what I do, I noticed that Fabo had the V.I.P. on lock. He and his boys were doing the standard star thang. Popping bottles and flossing. And I didn’t notice anything out of the ordinary. I soon left cause my shoes said it was time to go, but a few days later The New York Post got the scoop that Fabolous couldn’t pay his tab that night:
FABOLOUS went from “Nothin’ to Somethin’ ” on his last album, but at an Atlanta restaurant, his credit is back to nothing. The rapper showed up at the hot Eros World Tapas Bar on Saturday with an entourage of more than 20, a source said. They requested “the usual excess of champagne and alcohol, so the manager asked for a credit card to start a tab.”
Unfortunately, Fabolous’ credit cards were all declined. “By the fifth credit card, the entourage member designated to take care of his tab goes outside,” our source said, “only to start a fight with the outside bouncer. He tripped and fell, hitting his head on the concrete and started bleeding. The manager called an ambulance. But as soon as the entourage member also saw the police, he began running away, blood oozing down his face.” Fabolous and his posse stayed and ordered champagne but paid cash. Reps for the restaurant and the rapper declined to comment.
Dayum those Carlos Santana’s! I even saw ol boy falling down outside and acting a fool. I coulda got mad footage that night!
Sidebar: I bet Shawty Lo’s tab was paid… BANK-HEAD!!
Prophetess Juanita Bynum held her 50th birthday bash last Friday night at the Georgian Ballroom in the Biltmore Hotel. All that ghettofabuless-ness was going on downstairs as I was upstairs in the same building during the B.o.B. listening party. I have never seen so many church folks in one place…well except at church. I bet you’re wondering why Juanita’s wearing that dayum wedding dress aren’t you? Well…apparently she explained to Essence that for her 50th birthday she was gonna face her fears and do things a bit differently:
One of the greatest moments of my life was the day that I married. That day was supposed to be the defining moment of my life when I would show the world that I had stepped into my womanhood. It was always the original intention of my dress and I refused to let it not be because it was made for me. So I wore it because I felt like someone had robbed me of that right. I waited so many years to walk in it and I wanted to give the dress the honor for which it had been made. My father told me to always face your fears head-on, and since this was the dress that is connected to the incident for which the whole world remembered me, I said that if I’m going to cross over I have to go back and stand in the same place.
In case you’re wondering, Bynum’s dress is the same one worn in her $1.2 million dollar wedding to Thomas Weeks, the same dude who beat her down in a parking lot then said he was the abused spouse. *sigh* Anway…the dress, valued at $65,000, is adorned with Swarovski crystals and took nine months to make. Bynum says she had to alter it since she’s lost 2 dress sizes since the wedding. She also made her own skirt to celebrate her half a century on earth. The front of the skirt consisted of photos of her; the right side of the skirt had photos of her mom; and the left and back were of her dad. Photos below:
Meet Edward Richardson, 41, of Staffordshire England. Richardson was just convicted of murdering his wife last year after she changed her FACEBOOK marital status to single:
“Richardson became enraged when Sarah changed her marital status on Facebook to single and decided to go and see her as she was not responding to his messages. He gained entry by breaking the front door window and made his way into the property.
Once inside he found Sarah in her bedroom and subjected her to a frenzied and brutal attack with a knife and then attempted to take his own life. (Source)
This fruitcake has since been sentenced to life with a minimum of 17 years in prison but that still doesn’t make up for the fact that this was a totally senseless crime. I’m still amazed at the amount of people who actually PAY ATTENTION to peoples relationship statuses on Facebook. Hell…mine used to change with my mood too until I just decided to leave it at “complicated”… Life is crazy and the internet is the DEVIL.
Soulja Boy is no longer keeping quiet about the robbery that went down at his college park home on New Year’s Eve Eve. The youngster hit up Big Boy’s radio show in LA Friday (Jan 23rd) with the following explanation:
“Basically I was at my crib and I had my album release party at my club that night. I got back to my house at around 3 in the morning and I was in the studio recording. So two of my homeboys was in the living room and Me and Arab we was in the studio recording. And somebody kicked in the door.”
“One dude ran in put the AK to my homeboy head, put him on the floor,” he continued. “The other two ran in – my homeboy jumped in the other room – so the other two dudes ran back so I peeped in the door and they running through my house with Ks and pistols – so I ducked back. I really can’t dwell on what happened after that, but it was a messed up situation [and] I’m glad everyone made it out alive.”
As to why this is the first time SB is speaking on the incident, the teen rapper said it was because he wanted to protect his younger fans. “I really don’t want to dwell on the entire situation because of my career – my music is pointed towards the kids and I don’t wanna give them that bad image on what actually went down.” (Source)
Peep the video below:
I’m glad everyone’s OK too. It’s sad that thugs feel they can just TAKE what someone has worked hard for…
I occaisionally check up on my favorite peeps and wondered about Griffy2Trillion the former leader of Hot 107.9′s A-Team. I got a pleasant surprise in my inbox yesterday confirming that Arlen “Griff” Griffin is still on the grind but he’s far far away from the “A.” Griff, the ruff voiced comic who woke up most of Atlanta’s working hip-hop heads is now chillin on a morning show in NEW ZEALAND!
