DaBaby Cam Coldheart Fight Video

Someone thought it’d be a good idea to troll DaBaby in a local mall, and that same someone was left pantsless and embarrassed.

A rapper named Cam Coldheart took to IG to post a video of himself trolling the Charlotte rapper and following him around inside a Louis Vuitton store.

“You a b****,” Cam can be heard saying in the video. “Y’all look at the n**** DaBaby. That n**** DaBaby in here talking some s***.” “He walking up on me and s*** like he about to do something. What you gon’ do? What you taking your s*** off for?”

Cam apparently previously claimed that DaBaby was falsely repping Charlotte when he’s “really from Ohio”, so when he saw him out and about, he seized an opportunity.

Unfortunately for Cam, DaBaby also seized the opportunity and Cam was left in a crumpled, bloody heap after the altercation. The rival rapper’s pants were also left around his ankles.

“When bullying Baby on the internet goes wrong,” DaBaby captioned the vid.

When bullying Baby on the internet goes wrong🤦🏾‍♂️

SMH.
Cam Coldheart is adamant however that Da Baby didn’t fight him one-on-one ad says he was jumped by DaBaby’s security.

Suuuuuure.

If Cam was jumped, this is the second time in recent weeks that DaBaby’s security has been accused of being violent. They were previously seen on video beating up an “overzealous” fan, and that man is reportedly in a coma.

We don’t condone violence, but everyone knows DaBaby will defend himself. Remember when he killed a man in Walmart who was trying to rob him?

Leave that man alone, y’all.

‘No Food, No Drink, No Watermelon’ Boston Art Museum Bans 2 Of Its Members For Racist Remarks To Black Seventh-Graders

Museum Of Fine Arts In Boston Responds To Racism Claims

After a group of black middle schoolers was racially profiled on a field trip, a local museum is issuing a response.

The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston said it revoked memberships from two visitors and banned them from the museum’s grounds after a teacher said her students were racially profiled during a recent class trip, reports NBC News.

Marvelyne Lamy, a teacher at Helen Y Davis Leadership Academy in Dorchester, Massachusetts, wrote a Facebook post detailing comments made by museum patrons and a tour guide. According to Lamy, a group of 30 or so more seventh-graders were with her at the museum when a tour guide told the children, “no food, no drink, and no watermelon” after they entered the building.

Later Lamy claims one of her female students was told by a visitor; “It’s a shame that you’re not learning and instead stripping,” as the child danced to music playing in the exhibit.

She also adds that they were trailed by security throughout the museum and berated.

“We were instructed not to touch any of the artifacts in the museum, yet the white students there touched the displays several times while security looked on without saying anything. The minute one of our students followed suit, the security guards would yell at them that they should not touch exhibits. Throughout our walk through, they followed us. Many of our students grew agitated.

At the end, we went through the gender bending exhibit where the security guard followed our every movement. It got so bad that I started gathering our students so we could leave. I was pulling one of my students to come out the exhibit, when she said that one of the visitors made a comment towards her when she was dancing to music included in the exhibit. The visitor said that’s it’s a shame that she is not learning and instead stripping. That’s when I had it. I told them we are leaving right now.”

[…]

“As we were walking out, our students were standing in the doorway of the Africa exhibit. We had them clear out the doorway so people could pass by. This lady walks by and says, “Never mind there’s f****g black kids in the way.” And ironically she says this in the African exhibit.

The museum said in a May 24 message on its website that it looked into the complaints and indeed found two instances of two of its patrons making “racist comments” to students.

“We have identified the patrons who made the disparaging remarks and revoked their memberships, banning them from the Museum’s grounds,” the museum stated. “We will serve them with a no-trespass cease-and-desist notification.”

The Museum of Fine Arts also added that all front-line staff will receive additional training on “how to engage with incoming school groups about policies and guidelines.”

David Letterman Digs Into Kanye’s Trump Love, Sunday Service And Struggles With Mental Health For “My Next Guest”

David Letterman Gets Kanye To Open Up About Late Mom, Mental Illness And Trump

In case you haven’t already heard — we’ll have another chance to get a better understanding of Kanye West and his “interesting” life and philosophies thanks to his appearance in the new season of David Letterman’s Netflix show “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction.” According to an early preview by the Daily Beast the conversation covers a range of topics including music, fashion and Kanye’s relationships with his father and late mom as Kim Kardashian West sits in the audience watching. Letterman even takes a trip to KimYe’s crib where he tries on pieces from the Yeezy collection, to Kim’s approval.

“You look really good,” Kim tells him.

We were probably most interested to hear that he brings up other artists he’s been at odds with:

During a discussion about his lyrics, Kanye begins to say, “An artist which I will not mention, because I’m not allowed to mention him or any of his family members…”

Letterman responds with, “That’s fairly provocative.”

“Well, we had a little beef last year,” Kanye says, before revealing that he is referring to Drake. “He has this line that I love that says, ‘I told my story and made history’—like made his story and made history. That’s what we do, we tell our story and then people relate to that story.” But then, he adds, people latch onto that story and get mad when it goes in a direction they don’t expect.

“I have a friend who told me that my power is my influence,” Kanye continues. “And I said my power is my ability to not be influenced.”

Letterman follows with, “Wow, this is pretty good.”

The interview also addresses Kanye’s mental health issues, which he describes thusly:

“When you’re bipolar, you have the potential to ramp up and it can take you to a point where you start acting erratic, as TMZ would put it,” the rapper says, referencing his on-air meltdown at that outlet’s offices last year.

Ye, who stopped taking his medication a year ago, argues that his disease likely fuels his creativity:

“If you guys want these crazy ideas and these crazy stages and this crazy music and this crazy way of thinking,” he says, “there’s a chance if might come from a crazy person.”

Of course we saved the best for last… Letterman doesn’t ask Kanye about Trump, Kanye brings up that relationship on his own:

In the midst of an argument about his “fear” as a man during the #MeToo movement, Kanye says, “This is like my thing with Trump—we don’t have to feel the same way, but we have the right to feel what we feel.” When he wears his “Make America Great Again” hat, he says it’s “not about politics” but rather an attempt to break the stigma around showing support for Trump.

“Did you vote for Trump?” Letterman asks him.

“I’ve never voted in my life,” Kanye answers.

“Then you don’t have a say in this,” Letterman shoots back to cheers from the audience.

Kanye responds, “Well you got me, you got me,” before going on his anti-13th Amendment rant that drew Trump’s praise and may or may not have been inspired by conservative activist Candace Owens.

From there, Letterman tries to get Kanye to condemn the Republican-led voter suppression efforts during the most recent midterm elections. “So if I see a person that I admire talking about Donald Trump can think whatever he does,” he says, “I wonder if those thoughts, indirectly, aren’t hurting people who are already being hurt.”

Instead of addressing Letterman’s point, Kanye turns around and expresses sympathy for Trump voters who are “treated like enemies of America because that’s what they felt.” After Letterman makes his forceful case against the idea that Trump is some sort of savior to those who voted for him, Kanye takes a long pause.

“Have you ever been beat up in your high school for wearing the wrong hat?” he asks eventually. Asked who is doing the bulk of the bullying in America right now, he replies, “Liberals bully people who are Trump supporters!”

YIKES… But according to the Daily Beast, Ye kinda manages to redeem himself by revealing some of his James Turrell-inspired Sunday Service project.

The episode and four others lands at Netflix this Friday May 31. Will you be watching?

Shannade Clermont Recalls Her ‘Sugar Daddy’s’ Death, Hopes She’ll Come Out Of Jail ‘Strong Like Martha Stewart’

Shannade Clermont Speaks Out Before Beginning Jail Sentence

Shannade Clermont’s accepted her fate and she’s speaking out. The model who’s set to serve a year-long sentence for racking up charges on a dead man’s debit card, sat down with The New York Post’s Page Six for an interview on several things, including what really went down the night that man, James Alesi, died.

According to Shannade, Alesi, a 42-year-old real-estate broker, was her “sugar daddy” and she had no idea he was in dire straights when she took his card and left a hotel where they had a rendezvous that prosecutors called a “$400 prostitution date.”

“He wasn’t asleep when I left — he was just drunk,” an emotional Shannade told The Post. “I have never been around people who have been on heavy drugs, so I didn’t really know.

“It was like, ‘Oh, he was a drunk mess.’ I was annoyed . . . [I thought] he was playing games. So I just left.”

Alesi was more than just drunk, he was overdosing and later died from cocaine mixed with fentanyl.

Shannade admitted that she took Alesi’s card and used it (obviously) without permission and splurged on a $20,000 shopping spree, rent, flight purchases, and Valentino shoes. She also admitted that when she found out that Alesi died, she STILL used the card.

“From the outside looking in, it looks like I knew he was dead and was like ‘haha’ . . . and that’s really sick,” said Shannade.

Shannon, also at The Post’s interview, defended her sister, saying it’s “sick” anyone could think that Shannade knew Alesi was dead or dying and that she didn’t call 911.

She also defiantly denied leading Alesi down a “wrong path.”

“The thing was, he was known as a sugar daddy — very known,” Shannade said. “He’s not, like, an innocent person.” Later she admitted that she never had strong feelings for him.
[…]
“I mean, I didn’t love him; I liked him,” Shannade said. “[He] was just someone who took care of me.”

Oh, girl…..

There’s much more to this story including Shannade namedropping her buddy Kim Kardashian and shamelessly comparing herself to other incarcerated celebs.

Hit the flip for that.

O.J. Simpson Allegedly Bragged About A Hot Tub Hook-Up With Kris Jenner In The ’90s, According To Former Manager

Did O.J. Simpson Have A One Night Stand With Kris Jenner?

Though he’s denied any romantic relationship with her in the past, O.J. Simpson’s former manager is claiming that something actually did go down between the disgraced football star and Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner.

According to reports from Page Six, Simpson’s former manager Norman Pardo alleges that Simpson once bragged about having sex with his best friend’s wife, Kris Kardashian, during a 1990s hot-tub tryst that ended up ruining both their marriages.

Simpson and his then-wife Nicole, along with Robert and Kris Kardashian, were in a Jacuzzi one night while vacationing together, according to Pardo in his new documentary, Who Killed Nicole? 

Once Nicole and Robert turned in, O.J. and Kris were left alone in the jacuzzi. “‘O.J. said he stood up, pulled his shorts down and, I’ll give you exactly what he said: ‘Her eyes bugged out of her head and I f–ked that B until I broke her,’” his former manager reportedly claims on camera.

The Kardashians divorced shortly afterward in 1991 and the Simpsons ended up splitting up by early 1992.

O.J. reportedly bragged about the one night stand to Pardo during a 2003 limo ride to an appearance at an Atlanta nightclub, the ex-manager recalled to The Post.

While Robert Kardashian joined the team that represented Simpson during his murder trial in 1994–four years after the alleged hot tub hook-up–it was more out of practicality than friendship, according to Pardo.

Norman Pardo says he is currently shopping his 90-minute documentary to distributors, which will get an online release on June 12 to mark the 25th anniversary of the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Robert Goldman.

Neither Kris Jenner nor O.J. Simpson have commented on these most recent allegations–but as we mentioned before, Simpson previously denied ever sleeping with the reality TV star back in 2015.

Rapper Sosamann Arrested Following Prostitution Sting

Sosamann, a rapper from Houston, has been charged with human trafficking.

According to reports from TMZ, he was arrested this month following a prostitution sting in Los Angeles. Two women reportedly told authorities that Sosamann, along with others, had lured them to the West Coast with promises of the high life–but upon their arrival, they were forced into sell their bodies for sex and had no way to escape.

The Taylor Gang affiliate, whose legal name is Anthony Denson, was reportedly taken into custody and charged with a felony on May 11. He was released on a $100,000 bond the following day and is scheduled to go back in court on June 6.

Authorities say the investigation is ongoing.

As Complex points out, even though Sosamann has remained active on his various social media pages in recent weeks since the arrest, he has yet to address the charges.

The Houston native signed to Wiz Khalifa’s Taylor Gang imprint in 2016. His most recent album, Sauce Eskobar 2, dropped earlier this year.

Atlanta Teen Becomes Youngest Ever Admitted To Spelman

14-year-old Sydney Wilson is set to begin her freshman year at Spelman College in the fall, making history as the youngest student ever on campus.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For the Georgia teen, pushing the boundaries with her academic achievement is nothing new. According to reports from WSB-TV, Wilson was doing algebra in the first grade and began taking high school classes at Wilson Academy–a private institution founded by her father–when she was only 10-years-old. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Fast forward to current day, and she’s graduated with honors and as class Valedictorian, heading to the school of her dreams in the fall. Spelman has been Wilson’s only choice for college since she was a mere 8-years-old.

“I had taken a college tour then, and the women around me seemed so independent and strong. It really inspired me,” Wilson said. “Now I’m really excited and nervous. It’s obviously something new for me, but the Spelman girls have been really nice and welcoming. I’m excited to see the experience I’ll have.”

Sydney plans to live on campus just like her fellow students, and luckily, she’s not really worried about the age gap. “I’ve been with the older kids all my life, so socially, I don’t think it will be a problem for me,” she said.

Wilson plans to major in biology, planning on using animal science to come up with cures for human ailments.

Congrats, Sydney!

This Is America: Meek Mill Reportedly Harassed & Threatened With Arrest At A Vegas Hotel [Video]

According to TMZ, Meek Mill was denied from getting into Las Vegas’ Cosmopolitan Hotel Saturday after resort staff reportedly threatened to arrest him if he stepped onto the property.

Meek posted a video on social media showing himself, his security team and The Cosmopolitan staff discussing why he wasn’t being allowed inside the Las Vegas Strip resort.

 

The shocking thing about the video was the staff saying that Mill had been trespassing at the resort, meaning security could detain him if he were seen on the property.

Meek’s lawyer, Joe Tacopina, released a statement about the Cosmopolitan. Tacopina writes,

“… we have learned that the Cosmopolitan maintains a list of African American recording artists who should be denied access for no other reason than than their culture and skin color. Such course of conduct constitutes discrimination per se, in violation of state and federal law, and exposes you to significant monetary damages.”

The letter also states,

“…we urge you to promptly issue an apology to Mr. Williams and grant him immediate access.  In the event you fail to heed this one and only warning, we intend to pursue all legal recourse against you.”
