R&B singer Lyfe Jennings, born Chester Bamsu Jennings, has been convicted of criminal trespassing, discharging a weapon near a street, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and fleeing or attempting to elude a police officer and is headed back to the clink.
According to online reports, Lyfe is now heading to jail for three years. The artist was due to perform in Seattle on Tuesday, but the show was abruptly canceled before Jennings was sentenced to three and a half years in Atlanta earlier today (Wednesday, September 22).
The sentence stems from an altercation Jennings had with the mother of his child back in 2008, which spawned THIS bloody mugshot.
The singer kicked down the door of his baby mom Joy Pound’s house and later fired a gun outside. He then fled the scene in his red 2005 Corvette but was caught after a high-speed chase that ended when the singer smashed the vehicle.
Jennings was handed misdemeanor charges of criminal trespass, discharging a firearm near a public highway and refusal to take a DUI test, in addition to two felony counts of attempting to elude an officer and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Last Saturday, Atlanta was host to the unveiling of Rémy Martin V – the first clear spirit from the House of Rémy Martin. The event was hosted by Takers star and acclaimed actor Idris Elba, with DJ Jazzy Jeff on the ones and twos…
Yung Joc as well as and many other industry players, all came out to get a taste of the new Rémy V. Noticeably absent was Atlanta rapper T.I., who as you know was named Rémy Martin’s “Global Creative Consultant” a few months back.
There’s no word on if Tip is keeping his consultant position in lieu of his recent legal issues, but Idris was heard telling party-goers that he was excited to be asked to celebrate the launch of V in Atlanta, and was seen sipping on some signature cocktails such as the “Victor.”
Atlanta will always love Mike Vick but he’s now been officially named the starting QB for the Philadelphia Eagles!
The Philadelphia Eagles have named Michael Vick the team’s starting quarterback, coach Andy Reid said Tuesday.
“When someone is playing at the level Michael Vick is playing, you have to give him an opportunity,” Reid said. “This isn’t about Kevin Kolb’s play. You’re talking about Michael Vick as one the best quarterbacks in the NFL right now.”
Kolb missed the last six quarters because of a concussion, and Vick played well in his absence. Kolb was cleared to practice and was expected to run the first-team offense on Wednesday.
“Kevin is fine. It’s not an injury-related issue,” Reid said. “It’s not about judging him. He’s going to be a championship-caliber quarterback.”
This decision to go with Vick had been in the works for two days.
Team sources told ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio that in the early morning hours on Monday, Reid, general manager Howie Roseman and the rest of the Eagles coaching staff and front office started going through the game film of Sunday’s win in Detroit and saw the severity of the problems on the Eagles offensive line.
