They say blood is thicker than water, unless money and greed are thrown into the mix.

16 year old twins Tasmiyah and Jasmiyah Whitehead are currently being held without bond at regional youth detention centers on charges of murdering their own mother.

Police say Jarmecca “Nikki” Whitehead’s body was found by her daughters as they arrived home from school on Wednesday (Jan. 13). The 34-year-old beautician (pictured right) had been brutally stabbed and beaten and left to bleed to death in her Conyers home.

At the time, police announced they were seeking “persons of interest” in the slaying. Police assumed right from the start that Whitehead knew her killer(s).

After further analyzing forensic data taken from the crime scene, the twins were arrested on Friday (May 21) and charged with their mother’s death. One teen was arrested at a relative’s home in Clarkston, the other was arrested at Tucker High School.

They are being held without bond and kept apart to prevent them from comparing notes. One teen is at the Rockdale Youth Detention Center, while the other is at the Gwinnett YDC.

Both girls will be charged as adults. Whitehead’s boyfriend of 10 years, Robert Head, said he wasn’t surprised the girls were charged. Head speculates the two bad seeds were coerced into slaying their mother by family members who were out for money.

Singer Alicia Keys and her longtime beau producer Swizz Beaks denied rampant (and ridiculous) pregnancy rumors when they were spotted arriving back at their London Hotel after AK’s gig at the O2 Arena in London last night.

Alicia is far from stupid. Why would she have a baby by Beaks and he can’t be trusted around other females with loose values like herself? Alicia is currently on tour in Europe.

According to the NY Post, Washington Redskins star Albert Haynesworth is being sued for $10 million by a Brooklyn stripper who got knocked up by him during a chance encounter at the Super Bowl, and now she claims he dumped her.

Silvia Mena, 25, tearfully told a NY Post reporter that she hasn’t heard from Haynesworth since late March when she told him she was pregnant with his child.

Mena is naturally suing Haynesworth for $10 million — 10% of his $100 million contract with the Redskins.

Mena, who is four months pregnant, says her demands for cash to support her newly acquired taste for the finer things in life were refused by Haynesworth. And she says her medical bills related to the unborn child have gone unpaid since she can no longer strip to support herself.

According to In Touch magazine (via the NY Post), rapper Common and tennis superstar Serena Williams have gone their separate ways after two years.

I’m surprised their relationship lasted as long as it did after rumors floated around the industry about their loud fights sparked by her insecurities.

Thank God no children came out of this union.

Could there be off-court drama for Serena Williams? According to In Touch magazine, Williams and rapper/actor Common have split after two years of courtship. The celeb weekly quotes a source saying the two “just grew apart.” They appeared together at the April premiere of the romantic comedy “Date Night” in New York, but Common attended the May 4 premiere of his new movie, “Just Wright,” with his mother. A rep for Williams had no comment, and reps for Common didn’t get back to us. Source

Violent clashes between heavily armed supporters of an alleged drug lord/gang leader and police forces has left 60 people dead in two parishes of Kingston, Jamaica.

The capitol is under a state of emergency after rumors spread last week that the government signed an extradition request from the US for drug lord Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke, 41.

Coke, who is still at large, is wanted by the US for a multitude of cocaine trafficking and gun running charges. He is alleged to be the leader of a powerful politically-affiliated gang in Kingston. It is those gang members who are risking their lives to prevent his extradition to the US.

Gang members have used tree branches, old cars and refrigerators as barricades to seal off Mr Coke’s hideout in Tivoli Gardens, where he has developed a loyal following among slum-dwellers by offering money, jobs, education and security [link].
