Yesterday, the Internet was ablaze with news about a sex tape that was being shopped around Atlanta featuring R&B king Usher, 32, and his comely ex-wife, Tameka Foster, 40. The sex tape may have come from the hard drive of one of two Macbook Pro laptop computers that were among a $1 million cache of items stolen from Usher's SUV which was broken into outside a Verizon store near Lenox Square Mall in 2009.

While Tameka embarked on a Twitter rampage against this blogger last night, I received a phone call from a close friend who was acting on a tip from a third party who had a screen shot of Usher for sale (presumably from the sex tape).

She told me that the seller was on his way to her location with the picture and she would describe it for me.

After viewing the photo, the friend called me back and offered up this description of it:

"It wasn't nothing but a picture of Tameka holding [Usher's] penis with her mouth open like she was about to start sucking it. Then you see his hand with the star [tattoo] on it hold[ing] the penis. It wasn't a good picture at all."

After hearing the description of the photo (and realizing it was a photo of Tameka, and not Usher as I had been originally told) I declined to purchase the screen shot.

I should point out here that no mention was made of a sex tape for sale -- just the one screen shot.

Moments later, I received a phone call from another close friend who informed me that celebrity blogger ATLien (owner of had just tweeted that she was approached by someone offering to sell her a screen shot from the alleged sex tape.

Is it just a mere coincidence that two celebrity bloggers who have had run-ins with Tameka Foster in the past were both approached on the same evening by someone offering to sell a photo from the alleged sex tape?

Last night, while talking to a record label executive about another matter, the exec casually mentioned that R&B singer Keyshia Cole was back home in Atlanta after being chased out of her mini mansion by a stalker in 2009.

The exec went on to say that Cole abandoned her beloved home for the safety of the west coast to get away from her determined super Stan, who was eventually caught with a large cache of weapons and sent to prison.

"She's back in Atlanta checking on her house because he can't bother her any more," the executive told me.

Keyshia considered putting her custom built 5 bedroom, 5.5 bath Alpharetta home on the market in 2009 after a stranger followed her home one night. “I own a gun – a Glock... and I called the police and told them I’d kill him and that I prefer not to,” said Keyshia in a cover story for the June 2009 issue of KING magazine.

Keyshia paid $827,000 in June 2006 for the 5,447 square foot home located in a posh subdivision in Johns Creek. But the depressed housing market sparked by the failing economy sent home prices plummeting in her neighborhood. Homes on Keyshia's street are now selling in the low to mid 500K range.

The family of Asheley Jewell will hold a candlelight vigil for her this Saturday near the location where she was wounded in an apparent road rage incident on March 5.

Jewell, 15, was shot in the back of the head when the car she was traveling in was fired upon by someone in another vehicle on Old National Highway near Jerome Road. Asheley remains in critical condition in the ICU at Grady hospital.

Anyone with information on the incident is urged to call Crime Stoppers Atlanta at 404-577-8477.

The vigil will be held at 7 p.m. Saturday at O'Reilly Auto Parts, 5549 Old National Highway in College Park.

"The vigil is a step toward healing a family victimized by senseless violence," said Jewell's cousin, attorney Ebony Phillips. "It is also a call for justice in hopes that someone will come forward with invaluable information about this case. Although nothing can undo the events of March 5, 2011, the family is hopeful that justice will prevail."

Asheley is the daughter of Ashley "A.J." Jewell, who was briefly engaged to former Xscape singer Kandi Burruss. Jewell died in 2009 following a fight in the parking lot of a now defunct Atlanta strip club. Jewell called off his engagement to Burruss shortly before he died.

By now you've heard the shocking news about the gang rape of an 11-year-old girl that has resulted in the arrests of 18 men and boys in a small Texas town.

The gang rape, and its aftermath, have stirred racial tensions in Cleveland, Texas, a town of 9,000 about 50 miles north of Houston.

The 18 suspects are all black and the girl is Hispanic.

"It's becoming a black and white issue because it happened over in the quarters. It's segregating our community again," said Brenda Myers, who runs the Community and Children's Impact Center in Cleveland, one of the few programs for Cleveland's youth. "The reaction is anger, devastation."

The sexual assaults took place on Nov. 18 after a 19-year-old man convinced the unidentified girl to take a ride with him and two of his friends. They eventually ended up in a dilapidated blue house on the outskirts of town. The men ordered the girl to disrobe. She later told police they threatened to have older girls beat her up if she didn't comply.

The men were later joined by other males from the neighborhood who got on their cell phones and invited their friends. When an adult relative of one of the males approached the house, the group, including the girl, fled out of a rear bedroom window. She left behind her bra and panties.

The group moved to a dingy, abandoned trailer where the sexual assaults continued. Police believe a total of 28 men and boys had sex with the girl.

Retiree Joe Harrison said he spotted the 11-year-old standing outside the abandoned trailer earlier that day. To him she looked older than her 11 years. She wore dark makeup and long hair. He later heard loud music blaring from the trailer. By then he thought the girl had been picked up by her mother.

Some of the suspects videotaped the assaults on their cell phones and shared the videos with friends at school. The gang rape was brought to the attention of police after the videos went viral.

The girl's mother, Maria, has seen her daughter only one time since Child Protective Services placed the girl with a foster family and restricted the family from even speaking to her.

Officials brought the girl to visit her mom when Maria was hospitalized recently with an illness.

"My daughter was crying and crying and hugging on me," Maria said. "She didn't want to leave. She misses her family and wants to come home."

Police suggested relocating the family to a different city due to death threats. Several of the suspects are star athletes at Cleveland High School. One of them is the son of a school board member. All are visible in the videos assaulting the girl.

According to The Washington Post, Felicia Pearson, 30, who played "Snoop" on HBO's critically acclaimed TV series, 'The Wire', was among more than 30 people swept up in a large-scale heroin and marijuana drug sting.

Isn't it ironic that as soon as Da Brat comes out, Snoop goes in?

The sting operation involved multiple drug enforcement agencies resulting in drug busts all across the city of Baltimore and its surrounding counties.

Raids were carried out in the pre-dawn hours by agents from the Drug Enforcement Administration, Baltimore police and a slew of other federal and state law enforcement agencies.

Felicia "Snoop" Pearson, known for her drug-assassin character on "The Wire," was taken into custody at a downtown apartment on a state warrant, officials said.

The actress has a troubled past, having been convicted at age 14 of second-degree murder. More recently, she refused to testify as a witness at a murder trial and was arrested at her then-Northeast Baltimore home.

The arrests are part of a five-month drug investigation, officials said.

According to, the R&B singer Chris Brown has angered women's groups (again) by calling his abuse toward Rihanna a "mishap".

Brown says he is ready to stop apologizing for his violent attack on Rihanna two years ago and move on from the "mishap," but women's groups aren't ready to forgive and forget.

"I’m in a positive place," said Brown, who last week leaked a graphic pic of his peen to boost album sales.

"I consider myself a grown-ass man. And at the end of the day, if I walk around apologizing to everybody, I’m gonna look like a damn fool,” Brown told Page Six magazine.

But women's groups don't believe Brown is a changed man:

In the Page Six interview, in Thursday’s edition of the New York Post, the 21-year-old singer revealed how many of his showbiz pals turned their backs on him after the incident.

"But you can’t blame people for how they want to be portrayed or if they don’t want to be associated with somebody who had a particular mishap,” he said.

Erin Matson, Acting Vice President of the National Organization of Women is disgusted that Brown would use such a word to describe an attack that left his then-girlfriend with serious swelling and bruising, a split lip, bloody nose and bite marks on her arms and fingers.

"It was not a mishap, this was a serious act of violence. No woman who has been assaulted would refer to it as a mishap, nor should anyone refer to it as such," she told

"What I am most concerned about is people who are hearing him say that he's assaulted someone and that it's not a big deal.”

One of AJ Jewell's daughters is in critical condition in Grady hospital at this hour. Police say Asheley Jewell, 15, and other teens were riding in a car on Old National highway Saturday night when someone in another vehicle opened fire. Jewell (pictured above) was hit in the back of the head. She was transported to Grady hospital where she remains in a coma.

Police said road rage may be a possible motive in the case, according to Fox 5 News.

A.J. Jewell was once engaged to "Real Housewives of Atlanta" cast member Kandi Burruss. He died after a fight in the parking lot of a strip club in 2009. He left behind six kids.

"My heart feels heavy 2day," Kandi Burruss tweeted on her Twitter page about Asheley. "I have my daughter & her friends so I'm trying to keep smiling but I'm worried about some1 else I care about."

A black man who beat a Hispanic woman into a coma during an argument over a parking space in Manhattan, now wishes he'd just let her hit him.

Oscar Fuller, a 35-year-old, 150-pound father of two, is claiming self-defense.

He says Lana Rosas hit him first before he landed a punch on her jaw, sending the 4ft 11in, 100 pound woman crumpling to the ground. The punch knocked 25-year-old Rosas out cold as she hit her head on the concrete. She has been in a coma at Bellevue Hospital ever since the February 25 incident.

The argument ensued when Fuller steered his Plymouth Voyager into a parking space in East Village only to find Rosas standing there holding the space for her boyfriend, Joseph Oliver, who was making a U-turn across the street. When Rosas refused to move and let Fuller have the space, he got out of his car to confront her.

Fuller's attorney told the court that Fuller acted out of instinct, not intent, when he sucker punched Rosas as her boyfriend came running.

Fuller was charged with felony assault and released on $100,000 bond during a court hearing yesterday. He's now saying all the right things to pacify a community that is outraged at his cowardly behavior.

The electrician from Queens, apologized to Rosas and her family today, saying "I wish I just let her hit me. It was out of reflex, just a reaction that went the wrong way."

Despite expressing regret and remorse, it was a different Fuller who attempted to get away after laying Rosas out on the concrete. Luckily, a citizen witnessed the incident and wrote down Fuller's license plate number.

Fuller said he attended a child's birthday party after the assault.

He has prior arrests for assault and drug possession. Fuller's next court date is on April 7.


The "charred" body of a 3-year-old boy was found inside an oven in a Greenville, MS apartment by police responding to a disturbance call in the early morning hours on Thursday. The child's mother, Terrie Robinson, 24, was charged with his murder.

According to Washington County Coroner Methel Johnson, Tristan Robinson sustained head injuries and other trauma that occurred sometime before he was placed inside the hot oven. Police say the body was "Still warm to the touch" when it was removed from the oven just after midnight.

The toddler may have been asleep when he was placed inside the oven. Johnson said an autopsy would be conducted Friday to determine the exact cause of death.

Police also found a little girl who was uninjured inside the Greenville, MS apartment. She was placed in the custody of Mississippi Department of Human Services.

News of the child's horrific death sent shockwaves through the community. Terrie Robinson's twin sister, Sherrie Robinson, feared the public was rushing to judgment without hearing all of the facts.

"She was a great parent, a good person. We don't know what's wrong," said Sherrie in an interview with WXVT-TV. "We don't know what happened. Do not sit there and call her a bad mom cause that's not what she is."

Terrie Robinson is being held on $5 million bond.


This morning, while perusing my Twitter timeline, I spotted this story about a Middle Tennessee basketball player's roommate being charged with her murder. The first thing I thought was a lover's quarrel had gotten out of hand. I intended to write a post this morning, but it completely slipped my mind. Thanks to loyal reader Nicole B. for refreshing my memory.

Rutherford County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Lisa Marchesoni said 18-year-old Shanterrica Madden was charged with first degree murder in Stewart's death. She is scheduled to appear in court Thursday morning.

Police spokesman Kyle Evans said Madden stabbed Stewart during an argument.

Two others were ruled out as suspects after police interviewed them.

The 21-year-old Stewart had multiple wounds when authorities found her, Evans said. She was taken to Middle Tennessee Medical Center and was later pronounced dead.

Middle Tennessee president Sidney McPhee, who spoke with Stewart's father, said at a news conference that the entire university is grieving over the death of "a wonderful, talented and vibrant young woman." McPhee said Stewart had spent the past three Thanksgivings with his family because she could not return home for the holiday.

"The anguish I feel as a father and a president ... but personally as a father with a daughter about the age of Tina cannot adequately be expressed with words," McPhee said.

Counselors have been alerted to help on campus.

Athletic director Chris Massaro was emotional at the news conference.

"This is an unspeakable tragedy to one of our family members," Massaro said. "Our biggest concern is with Tina and her family. The team is devastated, but we'll work through this together ... one step at a time."

According to, pop singer Christina Aguilera, 30, and her new boyfriend, Matthew Rutler, 25, were busted early this morning in West Hollywood on suspicion of public drunkenness and driving under the influence.

This is the first arrest for the normally squeaky clean superstar. But sources tell TMZ they have been trying to get Xtina into a rehab program for weeks.

Cops say ... Aguilera was a passenger in a car driven by Matthew Rutler when officers noticed he was driving erratically around 2:45 AM ... so they pulled the vehicle over.

Officers determined Rutler was drunk and arrested him for misdemeanor DUI.

Cops say the deputies determined Aguilera was also "extremely intoxicated" ... and since she was unable to care for herself, Aguilera was taken into custody.

Aguilera was booked for public intoxication -- and according to the booking sheet, she was listed at 5'2" and 100 lbs.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff's Department, Rutler's bail was set at $30,000.

However, the source adds, "If the driver had NOT been arrested for DUI, [Christina] would have never been in trouble.".

Xtina separated from her husband Jordan Bratman late last year and began dating Matthew. Their divorce will be finalized in April.


According to a confidential informant, who begged to remain anonymous, rapper Da Brat, real name Shawntae Harris, is back home after serving 3 years in prison for assaulting a cocktail waitress with a liquor bottle at Jermaine Dupri's now defunct Studio 72 in Decatur.

Brat, who spent most of last year out on work detail, wasn't welcomed home with lavish champagne-soaked parties and strippers. Instead, she is on house arrest and is required to notify her parole officer (whom she's scheduled to meet with today) whenever she has to leave her home for doctor's appointments or emergencies.

At 36, Da Brat finds herself washed up and alone for the first time in her life. According to my source, most of Brat's industry friends have abandoned her -- except for her "sister" LisaRaye, who calls her regularly to keep her spirits up. "No one else will return her calls," said my source, who promised to deliver a message to Shawntae asking her to call me.

"No one but LR reached out to her while she was in jail," said my source, who added that few people made the 2-hour drive from Atlanta to visit Da Brat "including JD."

According to my source, Brat spends her days writing songs and working in her home studio. But without a record deal or a publishing deal, Da Brat has to rely on residual royalties from her distant hit records to pay her bills.

According to, troubled NFL quarterback Mike Vick canceled his sit down interview with Oprah Winfrey today. It was to be his first major interview since being released from prison where he served 18 months on dog fighting and animal cruelty charges.

Oprah had won the bet she wagered with CNN host Piers Morgan about who would land the interview with Vick first.

There is no word on why he bailed out of the interview with Oprah. But we can only speculate that Oprah was going to grill him about the dog fighting. Or maybe she planned to bring out the kindhearted people who adopted Vick's surviving victims.

What else would they have to talk about for a whole hour?

The 20-year-old British student who died of cardiac arrest after being given a lethal injection of silicone, was under surveillance by federal drug agents at the time of her death.

According to London's Daily Mail newspaper, Claudia Aderotimi and her three friends were "flagged" by immigration officials during a previous trip from London to Philadelphia where they had butt and hip enhancement procedures.

Miss Aderotimi and her friends came under surveillance soon after they checked into the £100-a-night hotel near Philadelphia airport by agents who had received a tip-off that the girls were allegedly involved in some kind of drugs activity.

Officers from the Customs and Immigration Service sat outside her hotel unaware that in her fourth-floor room, she was being given a fatal silicone injection.

Police have named the woman suspected of administering the dose as a transgender singer who calls herself ‘Black Madam’.

The 41-year-old is being hunted by police after they seized syringes and silicone from her home.

Multiple ID cards in different names, among them Vanessa Brown and Padge Windslowe, were also found.

A Florida teenager is in jail charged with burglarizing an air conditioning business.

When two deputies from the Monroe County Sheriff's Office responded to a silent alarm at the Windswept Appliance and Air Conditioning in Marathon, they found an unlocked office with a light inside. There they found 19-year-old Keith White in front of a computer monitor, pulling his pants up.

According to the officers, White, who was in a state of arousal, had been watching porn on an office computer, which was still playing on the monitor. White was charged with burglary, criminal mischief and theft.

Teenagers who can't control their sexual impulses may have a problem with obsessive-compulsive behavior. It can be particularly problematic when teens masturbate in public during the commission of a felony or other risky, illegal behaviors.

It can be a bit hard to determine whether your teen is a sex addict unless they are open about it or caught in the act. There are some things parents can do to help prevent their children from becoming addicted to sex. For one, parents should speak with their children about sex, especially if they have questions about it at a young age. Many parents tend to ignore these questions and will heavily sugarcoat or block it out altogether. Instead, parents should answer these questions during childhood, just as they would other questions children have about life.

If your teen compulsively acts on their sexual desires and continues to do it and won’t stop, there is a high chance that he or she could be addicted to sex. It is important that you seek help for your teenager as soon as possible to prevent him or her from getting worse. Sex addiction is known to cause lots of problems in the lives of sex addicts, including problems with relationships, families and friends. Financial problems and mental or emotional problems can also develop. Get help for your teen today with teen sex addiction treatment. Source

Nancy Grace, the 'Swift Justice' host, and in-your-grill prosecutor, tells Popeater's Rob Shuter that she knows why Lindsay Lohan isn't in jail for habitual shoplifting.

Grace said what we already know: that there is a different justice system for wealthy, privileged Caucasians, and overindulged celebrities:

"I believe celebrities get into so much trouble because they think the rules don't apply to them," Nancy said. "I think it becomes instinct that they can do, say whatever they want, and there's no repercussions."

The troubled 24-year-old actress is facing felony grand theft charges for allegedly swiping a $2,500 necklace from a jewelry store last month.

"She's on video! She goes in the store without the necklace. She comes out with the necklace," said an infuriated Grace.

Grace said the reason Lohan wasn't immediately "thrown down on the asphalt" and arrested was due to her race and celebrity status.

"Let's just say you send a black girl into that same jewelry story, or an uneducated person or a poor person, they come away with a $2,500 necklace, honey, they would be thrown down on the asphalt and dragged by their feet back into the store and prosecuted!"

Watch the video of Nancy Grace's interview after the break!

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange arrived at Belmarsh Magistrates' Court, in south-east London, early this morning dressed to impress in a hand tailored, custom made suit and scarf. Assange was facing a second day in a British court Tuesday fighting an attempt to extradite him to Sweden over allegations of rape and molestation.

Even though the full weight of the Obama administration has been placed on the court to extradite him to the U.S., the 39-year-old Australian's lawyer Geoffrey Robertson argued that Assange could face the death penalty if extradited on from Sweden to the United States on separate charges relating to the whistleblowing website.

A New Mexico woman thought she was eating healthy when she accepted a yogurt sample from a male clerk at a local grocery store. After swallowing the sample, the woman thought she tasted an extra added ingredient that wasn't on the menu.

So she took her suspicions -- and what was left of the yogurt sample -- to the New Mexico police department where tests were run on the yogurt. The lab tests came back positive for ejaculated protein, aka semen, and saliva.

Police immediately took out search warrants to obtain blood and DNA samples from the grocery store clerk, Anthony Garcia, 31. Police said the body fluids were necessary to make sure the suspect doesn't have any sexually transmitted diseases.

They busted Garcia on the spot after it was determined that he had two outstanding warrants for a 2009 arrest for criminal sexual activity with a minor.

The 28-year-old victim, whose name was redacted from the police report, was shopping with her daughter at the Sunflower grocery store in Albuquerque, when she was approached by Garcia, who worked in the store’s dairy department.

He offered her a sample of yogurt, which she accepted. But she was immediately grossed out and disgusted when she realized the sample "tasted like semen.”

In a handwritten statement, the woman wrote, “I spit it out on the floor many times cuz I was upset.”

She wrote that when she talked to the grocery store manager Catherine Flores, “she told me was a Greek yoghurt. People love it has lot of protein on it.”

The woman said she paid for her groceries and returned home where she discussed the incident with her boyfriend. She told him how Garcia “just come with one sample just for me,” and that “he was so pushy to tell me how it taste.”

Her boyfriend was sufficiently alarmed enough to accompany her back to the store, where they summoned the police. When police arrived, an "extremely nervous" Garcia told them he discarded the yogurt samples in a trash compactor after the woman complained about the taste.

This story gives new meaning to the phrase "You are what you eat."

When 18-year-old Latisha Frazier went missing last August, her case was assigned to a homicide detective rather than the missing person's bureau. Latisha would never run away and leave her 4-year-old daughter, her parents told police.

Family and friends say Latisha was a good mother and student, who went to school in the mornings and worked in the afternoons so she could take care of her daughter at night. Her father, Barry Campbell, often wears a t-shirt with a picture of himself and his daughter.

"It's so sad. It's hurtful," he told NBC News in an interview.

Investigators say a group of 6 people -- 3 men and 3 women -- lured Frazier to an apartment in D.C.'s poverty-stricken Parkland neighborhood on August 4. There, police say, her hands and legs were bound together with duct tape and a bag placed over her head. The men and women took turns beating and stomping her with their fists, feet and blunt objects.

The group then put her in a closet inside the apartment. When she began to make noises, they pulled her out of the closet and beat her again. When she fell unconscious, they took a stick and poked her to see if she was still alive, then they stuffed her back in the closet for 2 days.

At some point, her body was discarded in a dumpster behind the apartment building. Her remains have never been found.

Months went by without a trace of her. Then a tip was called into the Metropolitan police department, leading detectives to believe she had been murdered.

5 people were taken into custody months after Frazier was first reported missing. The 6th suspect, 23-year-old Brian Gaither of Southeast Washington, was arrested yesterday at the same location where Frazier was murdered. He is charged with 2 counts of murder and ordered held without bail.

The defendants told detectives they believed Latisha stole money from one of them.

"Nonsense," say Latisha's parents. The suspects don't work. The suspects don't have any money. They say Latisha was the only one among them who had a job.


Actor Tyrone Burton, 31, got his start in the straight-to-DVD movie, Squeeze. From there, Mr. Burton played "T.K." on the WB show 'The Parent 'Hood'. When 'Parent Hood' was canceled, he got a plum role as Raven Symone's boyfriend "Andre" on the Nickelodeon hit TV show 'That's So Raven'.

After disappearing from the scene for a few years, Burton, 31, turned up today selling DVDs on a Los Angeles street. Like clockwork, the LAPD's best showed up to place him in cuffs in full view of the paparazzi. His charge: bootlegging his own DVDs.

According to Burton's Myspace page, he was hustling his own comedy play "Promise", which is available on DVDs for $20. If you want to support Tyrone (and help pay his bail) you can call his business line at (323) 481-1447 to place your order.

Burton's case is reminiscent of the 2007 arrest of Grand Hustle's mixtape king DJ Drama, who was busted along with DJ Don Cannon during a raid of their mixtape operation by the feds and local authorities who accused them of trafficking their own mixtape CDs. The charges against both men were later dropped.


First and foremost, stalking is not funny. It is a federal offense in all 50 states and stalkers who are caught in the act can face up to 90 days in jail -- or more if they commit bodily harm.

That being said, a local radio personality and blogger is herself the victim of stalking in the form of online death threats, and other threats of bodily harm, all because a Lisa Turtle lookalike accused her of being racist on Facebook.

Anh Vu of BeeHive FM radio took to her blog today to share her harrowing experience as a stalking victim with her readers.

Hey Friends,

After being threatened on my YouTube Channel numerous times by different people, I realized the epidemic of lonely, insecure, angry, bitter people in the world is REAL and not something to be played with. A woman took the time to steal pictures from my Facebook page and stole a clip from one of my YouTube videos and created a 10 min. video about me trying to depict me as a racist towards Black Women. Anyone that knows me personally knows that's the furthest from the truth so I'm not even
going to dignify that with a response.

This is a picture of the woman that made me a target in her video:

Anyway, this created a frenzy as I'm sure you can imagine other angry women and men came on her page to bash me. The bashing became so bad that people began to threaten to kick my ass if they ever see me out in public to a woman being bold enough to come on my actual YouTube channel and posted a threat to my life.

The reason I'm writing this blog is to help others that have been a target of negative publicity or threats.
Of course I know negative publicity is going to come with the territory but no one should have to put
up with threats!!

You have rights and this is something that you CAN and SHOULD report. Do not let people get away
with the bullying. That's what bullies do, they try to target those that they feel won't do anything in

Another dumb rapper adds his name to the ongoing list of recent incarcerations that has dominated Hip Hop news. A confidential informant in New Jersey just told me that Juelz Santana, 28, was locked up by a Bergen County undercover officer today.

A vindictive NY woman is facing attempted murder charges for poisoning her husband's mistress in hopes of causing the woman to spontaneously abort the fetus.

Kisha Jones was also pregnant when she tricked Monique Hunter, 26, into taking an abortion-inducing medication in October 2009.

However, her lawyer, Barry Turner, blamed Jones' actions on raging hormones. He told the New York Post: "My client was in the last trimester of her pregnancy and was acting irrationally. I guess her hormones were out of whack."

Here's more from London's Daily Mail:

Mr Turner accused 26-year-old Hunter of taunting his client, leaving phone messages with details of her three-year affair and claiming her husband would soon leave her.

Jones, 40, from Brooklyn, had no criminal history, a life-long record of helping disabled children, and deserved leniency, Mr Turner said.

She was under mounting pressure expecting her fourth child and 'she acted in a manner that wasn't consistent with her personality', he added.

Jones admitted using a forged prescription and a disguised telephone number to trick Hunter into taking cytotec, causing her to go into early labour.

Charges of trying to kill the premature newborn in the maternity ward and impersonating a hospital executive to try to get the baby taken off a ventilator were dropped.

I realize I'm late with this story, but bear with me and you'll see why I'm writing this so late.

Carl Tyson, the father of kidnap victim Carlina White Tyson, leaves the US Federal Courthouse in New York yesterday after an arraignment hearing for Ann Pettway.

Carlina White Tyson, now 23, was 19 days old when she was allegedly snatched by Pettway from Harlem Hospital twenty-three years ago.

Carlina was raised as "Nejdra Nance" in Bridgeport, Connecticut, just 45 minutes away from where her parents lived. Tyson and Joy White, Carlina's parents, separated a year after she was abducted. They both married other people and raised their own families. In 1992, Tyson and White were awarded $750,000 in damages by Harlem Hospital.

Carlina was reunited with her biological parents last week after she logged onto a missing children's website and found baby pictures that resembled herself and her 5-year-old daughter, Samani.

“I found out while I was pregnant. That lady told me she wasn’t my mother,” said Carlina of the woman who posed as a phony nurse when she stole Carlina from the hospital at 3:00 a.m.

The troubling aspect of this case is that Carlina reached out to Oprah Winfrey last year in hopes of finding her birth parents, but she received no reply. We all know that if Carlina was a white child with blond hair and blue eyes, Oprah would have responded personally, and this case would have been resolved before Christmas.

Butt shots and breast augmentations are all the rage in the black community now that the prices are so affordable and anyone with a kitchen table can administer the silicone and hydrogel injections.

Music videos shot on dime budgets and strip clubs that cater to so-called "ballers" with unlimited drug profits that can't be deposited into any bank, has created a high demand for black, Latina and white women with unnaturally enhanced curves.

The demand for butt shots is so great (and so profitable at $300-$3,000 a pop) that more and more black-market clinicians are setting up shop in their kitchens to administer the shots.

But according to the Feds, the administration of silicone and hydrogel injections by unlicensed personnel is still illegal outside of a clinical setting.

And unfortunately, women who desire to quickly pump up their assets are dying from nasty infections at an alarming rate as a result of the illegal procedures performed in unsterile environments. That's why law enforcement has started cracking down on the illegal activity.

Expect to see more arrests as police in every state begin to crack down on illegal butt shot parlors and their customers.

A Bronx beautician with zero medical training turned her Mt. Eden apartment into a silicone back alley, risking clients' lives with black-market boob and butt jobs at $1,000 a pop, the FBI charged yesterday. Whalesca Castillo, 36, made clients lie on a massage table for dangerous injections of liquid silicone that she had shipped in from the Dominican Republic, according to a criminal complaint filed in Manhattan federal court. Then she'd seal up the wounds with Krazy Glue. Released on $100,000 bond yesterday, Castillo, who's eight months pregnant, faces up to three years in prison on charges she distributed the silicone, officials said.

Just when you think troubled 35-year-old rapper 50 Cent can't get any more stupid than he already is -- he outdoes himself.

Earlier this week, Twitter was abuzz with the news that Curtis Jackson made an instant $8.7 million in the stock market by urging his Twitter followers to buy shares of penny stock that he owned.

“You can double your money right now. Just get what you can afford” Fiddy tweeted. “They are no joke get in now,” he added.

Jackson reportedly received 30 million shares of H&H stock in a private placement last October. H&H closed at 39 cents on Monday, up 29 cents, netting Jackson’s shares the aforementioned $8.7 million.

But is it really that easy to rake in millions of dollars on the stock market? Of course not. If it were that easy then stock brokers would jump on Twitter giving insider advice to their followers.

According to the SEC website, a broker or investor will spark a federal investigation into their stock trades if they are caught using artificial means to manipulate or raise the price of their stock.

It is likely that Fiddy will never see a penny of that cash. He hurriedly erased all of his tweets, sending his stock plummeting. But it doesn't matter. I'm sure the feds have all the evidence they need to pursue an investigation.

Maybe 50 Cent should have consulted with his BFF, Martha Stewart, who was convicted of lying about insider trading in 2004.

Yesterday, U.S. president Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama attended a "Together We Thrive: Tucson and America" memorial service in Tucson, AZ to remember the 6 people killed, and 14 wounded during a Jan. 8 shooting spree by a crazed gunman on Saturday.

During his speech, Obama paused at the podium fifty three times to soak up the audience's enthusiastic applause and cheering.

"Gabby opened her eyes for the first time," Obama announced to thunderous applause. Obama was referring to Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, 40, who was shot in the head during an assassination attempt.

"What we can't do is use this tragedy as one more occasion to turn on one another," said Obama.

But, apparently, the occasion can be used as an unofficial pep rally for Obama's upcoming re-election bid.

"Is it just me, or is this event starting to look more and more like a political rally?," wrote one political blogger who noted that concession stands were open and Obama t-shirts were on sale.

"Do the people there know they are supposed to be gathered in solemn remembrance of the dead – not cheering like yahoos at a football game?," he asked.

I have to agree. I mean, come on, cheering and souvenir t-shirt sales at a memorial service? Why am I the only black person who sees the hypocrisy in that?

Superstar Janet Jackson, 44, her sister LaToya, 54, brother Randy, 49, and mother Kathleen Jackson, arrived at a Los Angeles Courthouse for a preliminary hearing regarding the death of Michael Jackson earlier today.

Conrad Murray's pretrial hearing resumed today. He is accused of causing the death of pop icon Michael jackson who died of a Propofol-induced cardiac and respiratory arrest on June 25, 2009.

According to paramedics, Jackson was dead even before his body left his rented mansion. But Murray refused to pronounce him dead at the scene. He insisted that the paramedics continue to resuscitate the 50-year-old singer.

Murray's defense attorneys claim Jackson took his own life, but Jackson's bodyguard testified last week that Murray ordered him to hide bottles of Propofol (an anesthetic/sedative used during surgery).

Additionally, the receiving doctor at the emergency room testified that Murray was not forthcoming about the Propofol. The doctor said Murray admitted to giving Jackson only Ativan, a sedative to help him sleep.

A judge will determine if Murray should stand trial on the involuntary manslaughter charge.

The Augusta Chronicle reports that a man has been jailed for beating his 92-year-old grandmother to death.

According to authorities, Theodore "Ted" Cornell Lockett, 21, once lived with his grandma, Dorothy Lockwood, in her Apache Trail home.

Police say Lockett returned to the home in the early hours of Sunday morning. He broke out a window and confronted his grandmother in the living room. Lockett began assaulting her, knocking her to the floor and striking her several times in the head with a glass table.

Lockett then called his mother, Sondra Lockett, around 2 a.m. and told her he'd just killed his grandmother and was going to kill her, according to the police report. He went back inside the home and resumed his attack on the elderly woman, beating her with a microwave oven.

When police arrived, Lockett surrendered without incident inside the home. Mrs. Lockwood died from her injuries at 5 a.m. Sunday. Another woman in the home was uninjured. She was bedridden and being cared for by Lockwood.

Lockett had been treated at a behavioral health facility in the past, but he has no psychiatric diagnosis.

He was booked on charges of murder, aggravated assault, burglary and making terroristic threats.
