DMX Is Getting the F Out of Florida

Posted by mattymoe on August 27, 2008

Even though he dropped an F-bomb on a Miami judge yesterday, DMX can finally get into all the sh&t he wants — for now.

We’re told his lawyer, former “Apprentice” could-a-been turned miracle worker Bradford Cohen, just worked out a plea deal with the judge: time served and about a $483 fine. D could’ve faced up to six years on the trying-to-score coke and pot charges, to which he plead guilty.

We’re also told AZ lawmen have 15 days to collar him for all his eight zillion arrests there. If they don’t, he’s home free … until the next time he gets arrested, which should be …

Da Brat — Rum and Soap

Posted by mattymoe on August 22, 2008

Da Brat will go where a lot of rich white criminals don’t — prison…over rum.

She was just sentenced to 3 years for hitting a woman with a rum bottle last October. She’ll get an additional 7 years probation.

The victim — a former Atlanta Falcons Cheerleader — was hospitalized after the attack and permanently scarred.

Ms. Brat was convicted back in 2006 of pistol whipping someone.

Hudgens Accused of Being a Big Stiff

Posted by mattymoe on August 12, 2008

Vanessa Hudgens sent a photo of herself to a guy and inscribed it with this: “Johnny, thank you for everything, without you, I would be no where, we will make it BIG- Vanessa Hudgens. Sweet.” Now Johnny is suing her.

According to the lawsuit, filed today in L.A. County Superior Court, Johnny Vieira claims in May 2005, he and Hudgens entered into a production agreement to launch Vanessa’s career. Vieira claims they had a deal to “share equally” in the fruits of their labor. He says the agreement was approved by the court because she was a minor.

Vieira says after “High School Musical” became a hit, she dumped him and they entered into a settlement agreement. He says she’s been violating that deal and owes him more than $2 million.

Johnny on the spot is suing for more than $5 mil.

Christina Claims She Was Duped By “Dip” S**t

Posted by mattymoe on August 7, 2008

Christina Milian is suing a famous record producer, claiming he puts the low in “Dip it Low.”

Rewind to 2003. Christina records her first U.S. album for Island Def Jam. Poli Paul, a defendant, is the producer. Paul wrote the song “Dip It Low,” which turned into a monster hit. But here’s the rub — according to the lawsuit, filed just minutes ago in L.A. County Superior Court, Milian claims Paul “very definitively” assured her “there were no samples whatsoever in …’Dip It Low.'”

So imagine her shock when three guys — Thomas Turino, Larry Crook and Dan Dickey — sued her! They released an album in 1983 called “La Sirena.” According to the suit, Paul was in a Pasadena, CA record store, liked the song, and looped a 12-second sample of it into “Dip It Low.”

The suit claims Christina spent more than $300,000 to defend herself in the case against her and eventually settled. She now wants Paul and his associate, Spencer Cowlings Entertainment, to pay what she’s out.

Christina’s killer lawyer, Ed McPherson, wants the $300 grand plus punitive damages.
