Usher Raymond Tameka Raymond Judge Lane

Despite a federal probe into judicial corruption in her courtroom, Judge Bensonetta Tipton Lane denied Tameka Raymond’s request for a new trial Tuesday. Tameka Raymond’s attorneys filed a motion for recusal in September. The motion prompted a federal investigation into corruption in the contentious child custody case between Tameka and her ex-husband Usher Raymond. Tameka Raymond’s attorneys allege a special relationship between Usher’s attorney John Mayoue and the judge.

Last night, Tameka responded to the motion’s denial in a tweet on her Twitter page.

  • When human beings dress up their furry friends in Halloween costumes, is it just good fun or animal cruelty? The tradition of dressing up animals in costumes every Halloween may seem like fun for you, but for your animal it could be deadly.

    Animals already have coats — thick, furry coats that keep them warm when the temperature drops near zero. When they are covered in warm clothing their ability to regulate their internal temperature can be disrupted. Dogs can overheat and die.

    If you are one of the insensitive pet owners who dress up your dogs for fun, here’s an overview of what happens when your dog overheats. Unlike humans who sweat to cool off, dogs don’t sweat. When a dog is hot he pants by breathing quickly to remove heat from his body. Some dogs may drool excessively when they overheat as well.

    Tyler the Creator and Pharrell Williams like singer Miley Cyrus so much they wanted to take a picture with her. Pharrell tweeted this pic on Tuesday night.

    The unlikely photo session is odd since everyone thought Miley and Tyler didn’t like each other. The Odd Future frontman had nothing nice to say about Miley’s new haircut in a recent tweet on his account.

    The Apple executive responsible for the colossal failure of Apple’s new Maps app was fired for reportedly refusing to apologize to Apple’s customers.

    Scott Forstall convinced Apple execs to replace Google maps on the new iPhone 5 cell phone with his Apple Maps, which turned out to be a disaster.

    Not soon after the iPhone 5 launched, consumers began reporting problems with Apple Maps. Well-known streets and even entire towns were left off of the Maps navigation. The app quickly became a target of late night talk show hosts.

    Here is a comedic take on the late Notorious BIG’s hit track “Ten Crack Commandments,” titled “Ten Weave Commandments” by @Urbancomedynet. This video is strictly for women whose weave game is in need of serious help. This is 2012. There is no excuse for women to walk around with matted fur on their heads. Weave only looks good when it’s well-maintained and clean. Don’t just put weave in and leave it in for 6 months. Your friends won’t tell you if your weave smells.

    The Ten helpful Tips are as follows:

    1. Never let your tracks show (self-explanatory)
    2. Always travel with your weave glue (or hair pins in case a track falls out)
    3. Always pat your head when it’s itchy (patting won’t pull out the tracks or make your hair messy)
    4. Never lie and say “it’s all mine.”
    5. Never make your weave too greasy (there’s nothing worse than a greasy weave, believe me)

Both arrived and departed the party in separate vehicles. But word is that Karrueche is living rent-free in Brown’s Malibu condo (when she’s not giving him back rubs at his LA home).
