21 Savage Turns Himself In

It’s been one hell of a month for 21 Savage, and it seems as though things just keep getting crazier. Just days after being released from ICE custody, the Atlanta rapper turned himself to South Georgia police on Friday for a felony theft charge stemming from an incident in 2016.

TMZ reports:

In 2016, 21 was booked to play a club gig in Southern Georgia. We’re told 21 got a $9,500 advance from the promoter and got the $7,500 balance when he showed up at the club. For some reason, 21 bailed without taking the stage, but still left with the money. In all, the promoter claimed she was out $17,000. The promoter went to cops in October 2016, filed a police report and then filed paperwork to get a felony warrant.

21 was released from jail Saturday morning on his own recognizance and awaits his court date. Prayer up for the young star.

Justine Skye Gets A Restraining Order Against Sheck Wes

It looks like things between Justine Skye and Sheck Wes are getting more and more serious following the singer’s allegations of abuse and of him stalking her this past week.

Skye claimed that Sheck’s crew attacked her friends after previously claiming that an unnamed rapper–later revealed to be Wed–had put “hands” on her. The “Mo Bamba” rapper later denied the allegations, which prompted her to post footage of him on Twitter making his way into her house without her consent bv jumping over a fence.

Now, according to reports from The Blast, Justine Skye has filed for and was granted a restraining order against Sheck Wes.

In the restraining order request, Skye claimed that he “orchestrated a plan to stalk me and viciously beat my boyfriend and our friends in front of me in public.” She also alleged that ten other men besides Sheck were complicit in the supposed attack. The restraining order rules that Sheck must stay at least 100 yards away from her until their court hearing, which takes place next month.

According to reports, Skye says in the request that she does “not feel safe” and believes her “life is in danger.” It also includes a reference to an incident on July 26, 2018, where she claims Sheck “threatened to punch me in the face, headbutted me, told me he was going to ‘hurt me.'”

After Skye’s initial allegations and posting of the video, Wes responded by claiming that he never hit her and was simply trying to get back his belongings. “Just clarifying this is a video of me hopping a fence to get my stuff back from a girl who refused to give me my stuff” he tweeted. “Once again for the record I never hit or beat up any woman.”

 

Punk Who Posed As Babysitter To Lure, Rape And Pimp 13-Year-Old Sentenced To 12 Years In Prison

Man Gets 12 Years In Prison For Pimping Sixth Grader

A Brooklyn criminal who posed as a mother looking for a babysitter to lure his victim was sentenced Friday to 12 years in prison.

Anthony Charles, 24, and co-defendant William McNeil, who previously pleaded guilty, trafficked the teen girl over the course of 11 months beginning in June 2015, authorities said. According to The NY Post, Charles lured a Manhattan sixth-grader with the promise of a babysitting gig on facebook then sexually assaulting her and forced her into prostitution. When the girl arrived at McNeil’s Brooklyn apartment for the position, the defendants threatened her at gunpoint, sexually assaulted her, then pimped her out.

The two grown men forced the teen to perform sex acts in cars and hotels, using flattery and violence to keep her in line. She was raped four to seven times a day, and when her family and friends found out, they ostracized her.

The victim choked up as she read an emotional statement in Manhattan Supreme Court on Friday.

“They took away my virginity, my dignity, my freedom, my happiness and most importantly, my childhood,” she read from a piece of paper she clutched in her hands. “I never understood how people can hear you cry for help and not do anything.”

“What happen to me broke me forever,” she said, her voice cracking. “I felt disgusting. I felt dirty all the time. It was all types of men even doctors and teachers.”

The victim says she grew so depressed that she considered suicide.

Charles, who was convicted at trial of sex-trafficking and promoting prostitution, mumbled a half-hearted apology before Justice Gilbert Hong handed down his sentence. The judge said Charles faced a maximum of more than 50 years.

McNeil, 24, pleaded guilty to one count of sex-trafficking as part of a plea deal and was sentenced to five years in prison.

“The horrific violence and coercion committed against this 13-year-old child was not enough to break her spirit,” said Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance Jr. in a statement.

“She took the stand to testify in an act of extreme courage, bravely articulating the months of torture she endured at the hands of these heartless traffickers. The story of this profoundly courageous survivor shows us that in the safest big city in America, child sex trafficking still persists,” Vance said.

Good riddance!

Neil deGrasse Tyson’s Cosmos Season 2 Gets Delayed

It looks like things just aren’t in the cards right now for the second season of Neil deGrasse Tyson’s series, Cosmos: Possible Worlds, to premiere on schedule.

The science documentary series–which is hosted by Tyson– was set to premiere March 3 on both Fox and National Geographic, but has now been bumped amid investigations by the companies following sexual harassment allegations against the scientist from multiple different women.

Repeats of Family Guy are going to be filling in for Possible Worlds in the time slots it was supposed to fill on March 3 and March 10, according to reports from Deadline.

Neil deGrasse Tyson’s Possible Worlds is a follow-up to his 2014 Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, which won a whopping twelve Emmy Awards, including “Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Series.”

Trouble with his Cosmos series isn’t the only thing Tyson is facing amid these allegations, either. Just last month, the National Geographic Channel suspended Tyson’s show Star Talk mid-season once these same allegations came to light.

“In order to allow the investigation to occur unimpeded we chose to hold new episodes of ‘Star Talk’ until it is complete,” a National Geographic spokesperson told Variety.

Comedy Beef: Mo’Nique Has More Words For Steve Harvey

It looks like Mo’Nique is keeping the same energy she had for Oprah and Lee Daniels for her “brother” in comedy Steve Harvey. Mo is calling Steve out for being a coon ‘sell out.’

The two veteran comedians had an intense conversation on air where Steve suggested Mo shut up and play into a capitalist “game”. Steve caught backlash from viewers after suggesting Mo sacrifice integrity for money.

Mo, full of sense, is now showing Steve how and why he sounds exactly like the house slave in “Roots” by posting this video.

Do you agree with her? Hit play.
