Actor Jamal Woolard is in trouble again for assaulting his wife, Trina Younger. Gossip tabloid TMZ reports the actor who played the late Notorious B.I.G. in the 2009 biopic "Notorious" was busted Saturday night in Gwinnett County (GA) for assaulting his wife in front of his stepson.
Alexsandra Wright, the mother of Mathew Knowles' only son Nixon Knowles, lost her case that would've forced Knowles to increase child support payments.
A judge ruled that Knowles, the father of singer Beyonce, was all caught up on his child support payments, and that he didn't owe Wright any more cash for at least 2 years.
Now Wright is hitting the talk show circuit complaining bitterly that she and her son are flat broke and forced to move out of their comfortable suburban house and into a donated mobile home in a run-down trailer park.
Yesterday, TMZ.com reported that an Atlanta Judge ordered rapper Chris "Ludacris" Bridges to pay his baby mama $7,000 a month in child support for his 2-month-old daughter, Cai Bella Bridges. The facts about how much child support Tamika Fuller will receive are completely wrong. Check out the real facts after the break!
Some of you weren't even born when the youngest in charge, Special Ed dropped his blazing debut album of the same name when he was a mere lad of 16. Propelled by the album's scorchers, "I Got It Made" and "I'm The Magnificent," Ed's album, Youngest in Charge, went on to sell more than 500,000 copies in 1989.
The Jamaican-born rhyme slayer followed up those hits with "Come On, Let's Move It" off his sophomore album Legal, which dropped in 1990 when Ed turned 18.
But where is Special Ed now?
R&B crooner Usher Raymond's ex-wife Tameka Raymond has filed court documents criticizing his parenting skills. The 34-year-old singer was awarded primary custody of his two sons with Tameka Raymond last year.
In court documents filed in Atlanta, Tameka has asked a judge to hold Usher in contempt of court for storming out of a co-parenting class in July.
Moments ago, Judge John J. Goger denied Tameka Raymond's request for primary custody of her two sons with singer Usher Raymond.
After the judge gave his decision, Tameka and Usher hugged in open court. Tameka filed for an emergency hearing on Tuesday after one of her sons nearly drowned on Monday.
Both Usher and Tameka took the stand saying the other was unfit to raise their 2 children, Usher Raymond V and Naviyd Ely Raymond, 4.
But after hearing from both sides, Judge Goger let stand a previous judge's order giving Usher primary custody of his kids.
Singer Usher Raymond smiled as he arrived at Fulton County Courthouse court in Atlanta, Georgia earlier today to face his ex-wife, Tameka Raymond, in a new child custody battle after one of their sons nearly drowned in a swimming pool accident Monday.
Five-year-old Usher Raymond V, aka Cinco, is still recovering at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta Hospital, according to the Tameka's lawyer, Lisa West.
Tameka took the stand this afternoon and said she was concerned there was no pool drain cover installed in the pool as required by law. She said there have been other incidents -- in addition to Cinco's near drowning this week -- that prove Usher is a bad dad.
Tameka also expressed concerns that Usher's aunt, Rena Oden, was incapable of caring for the 2 boys. Cinco almost drowned at Oden's house on Howell Mill Road in DeKalb County, north of Atlanta.
This email came from a credible source within the Fulton County courthouse. The email concerns Fulton County Superior Court Judge John Goger who is presiding over Tameka Raymond's emergency hearing to request custody of her 2 sons with Usher Raymond.
Usher and Tameka's 5-year-old son, Usher Raymond V, nearly drowned in his aunt's swimming pool on Monday.
Usher Raymond V, aka Cinco, is still recovering in an Atlanta area hospital. The boy inhaled chlorine water into his lungs and required respiratory support when he first arrived in the ICU.
Yesterday, Tameka tweeted a photo of herself holding Cinco in his hospital room.
In the caption she wrote:
My favorite 5 year old. What a blessing! I have always loved and appreciated my sons but tragedies and close calls make this even more evident. URV had an angel named Kile Ishmael and our Lord and true savior to look after him. Words cannot express the relief and how thankful to God I truly am. Thank you Jehovah God, Jesus and Kile...also The AV worker that saved my son is my Hero!!! Period
Judge Goger is the same judge who returned a girl to her millionaire father after the father was arrested twice for abusing her.

Volatile rapper 50 Cent is due in court today to answer to a domestic abuse charge. Fiddy was arrested in June and charged with assaulting his ex-girlfriend and trashing her Toluca Lake condo. Fortunately for loose change, he has one less thing to worry about: he is not the father of his ex-girlfriend's son.
If Chicago rapper Chief Keef can stay out of prison, he will soon be forced to pay $2,600 a month in child support, $500 in day care expenses, and an additional $10,400 in back child support payments.
According to a report on gossip website TMZ, the rapper is being sued by the 15-year-old mother of his first child, born last year.
Court documents show Keef, 17, earns roughly $13,000 a month in recording royalties -- not counting the under-the-table cash he is paid for nightclub performances.
