I love this guy. So eclectic and soulful.
Everybody hate’s Diddy. Bad Boy and Diddy has pissed off another ex-employee. TMZ reports the following:
A woman who claims she launched Puff Daddy‘s career is suing the hip-hop mogul for $12 million — claiming he fired her from his Bad Boy record label because she was old and disabled.
Francesca Spero just filed a lawsuit in federal court in NY — in which she describes herself as a “51-year-old white woman” who served as a high ranking exec for Diddy since 1998.
In the docs, Spero claims she and Diddy — aka Sean Combs — butted heads after she informed him that she needed major hip surgery in 2008 … and then later “suffered a relapse” to an addiction to prescription medication and alcohol.
According to the docs, Spero claims Diddy was “unsympathetic to her condition” — and ultimately tried to freeze her out of the company.
Spero says she continued to do her work — signing new artists — but was eventually fired in March
2010 … and replaced by a woman 10-15 years younger who “lacked the skill set and experience Spero brought to the position.”
Spero now claims Diddy — along with his publishing and management companies — owe her $12 mil in damages for age and disability discrimination.
I’m sure they are. With popcorn and a partner no doubt. I can’t think of why he would get in trouble for this. Granted these things are better left private, but it’s certainly not illegal to have a sex tape. If we only lived in a perfect world right? Brandon may be fined at the most and maybe a little embarrassed, but surely he’ll recover.
Brandon Spikes, the Patriots linebacker and former Florida Gators star, is said to be naked in a video of a recorded Chatroulette interaction. An emailer offered the video to Deadspin for $1,500, but the web site balked. The footage surfaced on WorldStarHipHop hours later.
In the video, a naked man is seen with a scantily clad woman in what is said to be a hotel room. The two proceed to engage in oral sex. According to Deadspin’s emailer, the man does more than showcase himself to his Chatroulette partner — he also communicates via the written word. “let’s play don’t be shy” and “you make me wanna like your p—y,” he allegedly writes.
While it is unclear whether the man is Brandon Spikes, the two look quite similar. Scroll down for a tattoo comparison.
Spikes was drafted in the second round of the 2010 NFL Draft. He was a standout defensive star for the Florida Gators during his time with the college football powerhouse, although his tenure was marred by an eye-gouging incident in 2009. (The altercation’s victim was arrested over the weekend.) Spikes was a finalist for the prestigious Butkus Award last year, and he could start for the Patriots during the upcoming NFL season.
Click for the NSFW video. Is it really Brandon Spikes?
UPDATE: The NFL is reviewing the sex tape, and comments from Spikes’ agent strongly indicate that the football star is the man in the video. The “embarrassing situation,” Spikes’ agent could be fined., “certainly doesn’t reflect the kind of person that he is.” The Patriot
Dang I sure hope moms doesn’t get a gander at these pics. Thoughts??
I am so sick of these trifling acting cops. Most of them need therapy and should not have been given an effin badge. A 11 year old girl dies of something so small as a asthma attack because of a heartless snake. Check this:
Well now they know who the bastard is.
NEW YORK — A police officer accused of not helping an 11-year-old girl dying of an asthma attack has been suspended without pay.
Brooklyn mother Carmen Ojeda was driving her daughter, Briana, to a hospital on Friday when she turned the wrong way down a one-way street and crashed her car. She claims the officer at the scene said he didn’t know CPR and couldn’t help the girl, who died soon after.
“I asked him to help me,” Ojeda said. “‘My daughter is dying. My daughter can’t breath. She needs mouth to mouth.’ And he said, ‘I don’t know CPR.’”
The police department said Tuesday it located the officer, Alfonso Mendez, by showing photographs of staff to witnesses.
Mendez, 30, was suspended pending further investigation. He could face departmental charges of failing to act.
All officers are trained in CPR at the police academy.
Before the officer was identified, Ojeda had pleaded publicly for him to come forward.
“I want nothing from you or anybody else, I just want an apology,” Ojeda cried. “Give my daughter peace … and say, ‘I’m sorry.’”
The Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, a police union, doesn’t comment in cases like this, spokesman Al O’Leary said. A phone number listed under the officer’s name doesn’t accept incoming calls, and the officer couldn’t be reached for comment Tuesday.
All his punk azz gets is a suspension………………..Thoughts???
I was surprised to hear that this was the first time they talked since LeBron decision to leave. Mostly because LeBron had been following Mo on twitter prior to this. I now see that it was an invitation to continue their friendship. Mo ran into LeBron at the airport and told a reporter the following:
From Jason Lloyd reports:
The travel delay allowed Williams to unexpectedly bump into LeBron James(notes) at Hopkins airport for a clear-the-air type of discussion between the two former teammates that Williams says was ”much needed.”
Williams and James were close during their time together with the Cavaliers, and Williams was one of the players stung the most by James’ departure to the Miami Heat this summer.
”Part of me is still sour . . . but I wish him the best,” Williams said Monday between holes at the Cavaliers’ Youth Fund Golf Classic at Westfield Country Club. ”He’s got enough people rooting against him, he doesn’t need one more.
My sentiments exactly Mo. He handled that like a mature adult.
Lebron tweeted the follwing this morning:
“Up early taking LeBron Jr to school. He hyped! Lol”
He looks just like momma Savannah to me.
LeBron sent out a video tour of LBJ Jr.’s classroom
Peter McFarland of Marin County, Calif. is suing the county sheriff’s office for tasing him in his own home while his wife pleaded with them to stop.
The deputies arrived June 29 of last year after McFarland fell outside his home while he and his wife Pearl were returning from a charity fundraiser, and he said something to the effect that if he had a gun, he’d shoot himself in the head.
It was hyperbole, McFarland told the deputies, who arrived after paramedics had already helped him inside. A rare survivor of pancreatic cancer, he considers himself lucky to be alive.
Yet the deputies insisted on taking McFarland to the hospital for psychiatric evaluation, ultimately tasing him after he demanded they leave his house. “Stop resisting!” the deputies repeatedly tell McFarland, as he whimpers and writhes in pain.
McFarland was arrested and jailed on a charge of resisting arrest, but a judge later threw out the charge.
WATCH the end of the confrontation, captured on one of the deputies’ taser-mounted camera:
That was hard to watch. I always thought that when you’re tased you lose all capabilities to control your movement. Why on earth do these cops still direct orders while tasing? For instance; they tell the person to put their arms behind your back etc.?
Cops nowadays lack compassion and God given common sense. All I see is a bunch of guys joined together throwing their weight around and hiding behind their badges like cowards. This mess is getting old. I will say that there are decent cops out there, but not many are left.
