Lil Wayne Settles Jewellery Dispute

Posted by mattymoe on August 13, 2008

Rapper Lil Wayne has reached an out-of-court settlement in a legal dispute over an outstanding jewellery bill.

The stars’, real name Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., was sued by the owner of Jack Sutton Fine Jewelry last year amid claims he failed to pay a $146,000 invoice.

Proprietor Jack Sutton alleged the Lollipop hitmaker placed orders over the phone for a $138,000 diamond ring and a $32,000 gold and diamond necklace.

But Sutton alleged that after handing over the first cheque for $24,000 in October, and a second in January, Lil Wayne’s payments stopped coming in – despite him agreeing to make monthly installments for the jewellery.

However, the two parties have now reached a deal in the case – more than eight months after the complaint was filed in Miami-Dade Circuit Court in Florida.

The rapper’s lawyer, Ron Sweeney, says, “We reached a settlement. Everybody’s happy.”

The terms of the negotiations have yet to be released to the media.

Lennon Killer Denied Parole for the Fifth Time

Posted by mattymoe on August 12, 2008

No need to imagine at least two more years of slammer time for John Lennon’s killer — he just got denied parole, for the fifth time.

Mark David Chapman just got the big red X from the parole board at Attica, meaning he’ll have to serve at least two more years there for the 1980 killing of the Beatle before his next chance at freedom. Parole peeps noted that MDC has had a clean record since 1994 but that his release “would not be in the best interest of the community.”

Yoko had lobbied yesterday against Chapman’s release.

Prosecutors did not paint a pretty picture of Ingrid Rivera’s last moments before she was left for dead on the roof of a Manhattan club during Lil’ Kim’s bday party — her throat was slit and her head was bashed with a pipe.

At the arraignment for Sayed Rahman, the DA said that Rivera died from “blunt impact trauma” to the head and that “incised wounds to the neck” cut her carotid artery. He’s been charged with second degree murder, and will be in custody until his next court hearing August 13.

We’re told five members of Rahman’s family were there in court, crying profusely.

Nikki Blonski And Bianca Golden Feud UPDATE

So, what really happened in the airport????

According to reports, it looks like both parties are probably to blame for the infamous throw down that raged between the families of Hairspray‘s Nikki Blonsky and America’s Next Top Model contestant Bianca Golden in a Turks and Caicos airport last Wednesday.

The limited seating at the airport’s departure lounge was the thing that supposedly “sparked it all off.”

The Blonskys allegedly had snapped up several seats in the tiny airport lounge just for their luggage.

WTF? Luggage is meant to be thrown around and on the ground.

The Hairspray family was reportedly asked by a member of the Golden family to place some of their luggage on the ground so someone in their party carrying a child could sit.

This is where it all goes nuts and things get a little cloudy.

The Goldens say that the Blonskys were peeved that their luggage had to be placed on the floor and started spouting racial hatred, referring to blacks as animals and throwing around the N-word.

But, another source claims the racial slurs only began to fly when a member of the Next Top Model group proclaimed, “I don’t want to sit next to any white bitch.”

Nikki Hairspray and Bianca the model exchanged words but not blows, though Nikki allegedly tried to rip Golden’s earring off.


Bianca’s mom, Elaine, then supposedly jumped into the mix to “defuse the situation” and to get her daughter “away from those people”.

Nikki’s dad, Carl, got into it too. He supposedly began punching Bianca’s mom in the head!

Whatever happened to the old saying that you DON’T HIT A WOMAN????

Elaine Golden is currently in an intensive care unit with a broken nose and cracked skull.

Meanwhile, Blonsky’s father is being held in a jail cell on the Turks and Caicos. The family is reportedly unable to post $75,000 bail.

Poppa Blonsky faces a potential eight-year prison term and is being held at least until Friday on a charge of “grievous bodily harm.”

Though they didn’t exchange blows, Nikki and Bianca were each charged with “actual bodily harm,” which carries a possible sentence of two years.

Hope the airport will look into more seating in their departure lounge.

We also find it ironic that the Hairspray star was involved in a race related brawl. Sheesh…Hairspray was all about racial harmony!

Friends Star Kudrow Sued By Ex-Manager

Posted by mattymoe on August 7, 2008

Looks like some of the former cast members from Friends are pretty damn cheap!

Last month it was announced that Matt LeBlanc‘s former business manager is suing him, seeking $1 million for unpaid commissions.

Now, the latest Friend facing legal action is Lisa Kudrow.

Kudrow’s former manager has filed a suit against the blonde.

He claims that Kudrow failed to pay him commissions since she fired him back in 2007.

At the moment, he’s seeking damages of at least $50,000.

Well that’s better than a million!

Her manager, Scott Howard, started working for Kudrow back in 1991, before she made it big on Friends.

Then years later, during her 10th year on the show, the two of them agreed to split his commission rate down to just 5%.

Howard states that during her time with the show and after, Kudrow paid all of his commissions.

However, since his firing, she’s allegedly refused to pay him any commissions for her time on Friends and all work she did while he was her manager.

At the moment, Kudrow has no comment.

Pay up Lisa. If it weren’t for him, you probably wouldn’t have been on the show!
