Rapper T.I's daughter Deyjah Harris tweeted and deleted a cryptic message about her father waking her up and offering her juice at 5 a.m.

The teenager wrote: "This is gonna sound super weird but last night, my pops woke me up around 5 AM asking if I wanted some juice and when I sat up, it LITERALLY felt as if I caught a charley horse but it was on the right side of my neck [sic]."

In response to a question from a follower, Deyjah wrote: "lmaooo, this isn't a normal thing. He just randomly came and asked if i wanted juice. i was confused like shit but i took it... [sic]"

The tweet was sent out on Jan. 23 -- days before Atlanta socialite Sabrina Peterson accused the rapper of putting a gun to her head. And before a plethora of women came forward to accuse T.I. and his wife Tameka "Tiny" Harris of drugging them and sexually abusing them.

Someone on gossip forum Lipstick Alley captured Deyjah's tweets and reposted them in a lengthy thread where many speculated that Deyjah's innocent tweet meant her father's sweet gesture was somehow incestuous.

Meanwhile, former friend Sabrina, who accused T.I. of putting a gun to her head "in front of children," took a lie detector test that showed no deception.

T.I. responded to the allegations that he and his wife drugged and sexually abused women.

"What we not going to do is open up the door to my bedroom," he said in a video posted on Instagram.

"Whatever we ever have done, has been done with consensual adults who into what we into and like what we like. If we want something, we know exactly where to go get it. We've never forced anybody, we've never drugged anybody against their will, we've never held anybody against their will. We've never made anybody do anything. We never sexually trafficked anything."

He captioned the video: "No weapon formed against us shall prosper. We vehemently deny ALL these disgusting, anonymous allegations..."

He added: "I want to say my wife is a beautiful person with an amazing spirit and a kind heart," T.I. shared on Instagram. "She's a devoted mother and she has a humble soul. She don't deserve it."

Nearly a dozen women have come forward with sexual abuse allegations against rapper Tip "T.I." Harris and his wife, singer Tameka "Tiny" Harris.

The women claims they were drugged and raped by T.I. and Tameka after they met the couple in strip clubs and bars.

The women came forward after the couple's longtime friend, Glam University owner Sabrina Peterson accused T.I. of putting a gun to her head.

In a recorded phone conversation, one woman told Sabrine that T.I. made her and pornstar Roxy Reynolds pop pills like "Molly" and Ecstasy while having sex with him and Tiny.

Another woman DM'd Sabrina on social media to say she contracted an STD from T.I. and she knew of others who also contracted the same STD from the rapper.

After Sabrina shared the women's testimonials on her Instagram Stories, Tiny's BFF Shekinah Jo accused Sabrina of happily participating in the drug-fueled orgies and even supplying T.I. and Tiny with women.

Sabrina responded by stating she shared the same space with Shekinah "for no more than 12 hours in my entire life."

T.I. and Tiny vigorously denied the allegations in a statement released by their lawyer on Friday.

"Mr. and Mrs. Harris want to be on record and more importantly want the public to know they emphatically deny in the strongest way possible the egregiously appalling allegations being made against them by Sabrina Peterson. The Harrises have had difficulty with this woman for well over a decade. They are taking this matter very seriously."

Rumor has it that T.I. applied for a restraining order to prevent Sabrina from going near him and his wife or disparaging his good name on social media.

Sabrina shared shocking allegations made by women in her Instagram stories.

Subway's public relations team rushed to get ahead of a potential PR disaster from a lawsuit claim that the franchise serves mystery meat to its customers.

A lawsuit filed by two plaintiffs in California claims an independent laboratory tested a Subway tuna fish sandwich and found the sandwich did not contain tuna or even fish.

"The products are made from a mixture of various concoctions that do not constitute tuna, yet have been blended together by Defendants to imitate the appearance of tuna," the lawsuit alleged. "Defendants identified, labeled and advertised the products as 'tuna' to consumers, when in fact they were not tuna."

The news prompted rampant speculation that Subway cuts corners by serving dog, cat or even human flesh that are cheaper by the pound than wild-caught tuna from the sea.

"These claims are meritless," a Subway spokesperson said in a statement to MSN's Insider. "Tuna is one of our most popular sandwiches. Our restaurants receive 100% wild-caught tuna, mix it with mayonnaise and serve on a freshly made sandwich to our guests."

Subway's spokesman claims a serving of tuna contains only skipjack and yellowtail tuna from fisheries.

The spokesperson added: "Subway will vigorously defend itself against these and any other baseless efforts to mischaracterize and tarnish the high-quality products that Subway and its franchisees provide to their customers, in California and around the world, and intends to fight these claims through all available avenues if they are not immediately dismissed."

In 2020, Subway lost a lawsuit in an Irish court that ruled Subway sandwich rolls could not be legally defined as "bread" because of the high sugar content.

At least one NFL player threatened to "go toe-to-toe" with disgraced ex-NFL player Chad Wheeler following his arrest on domestic violence charges.

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Dez Bryant tweeted: "Chad Wheeler if I ever run across you We are going toe to toe... [sic]" Bryant added that he "wouldn't mind making the news breaking something across your f***ing head then ask you are you still alive?"

Wheeler was arrested on Jan. 23 and later released on $400,000 bond.

The Seattle Seahawks released Wheeler after prosecutors in Kent, Washington, formally charged him with first-degree domestic violent assault, domestic violence, resisting arrest, and unlawful imprisonment.

Wheeler, who is Caucasian, allegedly told the unidentified Black victim to bow down to him during a role playing exercise. When she refused, he beat her and strangled her until she lost consciousness. When she regained consciousness, she locked herself in a bathroom and called 911.

According to a police report, the victim said Wheeler was astonished that she was still alive after the beating he'd given her. "Wow, you're still alive?" he reportedly asked her while he calmly ate dinner.

A friend shared photos of the victim's injuries on social media, sparking a firestorm of public outrage.

Wheeler, 27, broke his silence on Twitter.com following his arrest, saying he had experienced a manic episode during the assault.

"Events happened over the weekend that transpired from a manic episode," Wheeler tweeted.

Outraged NFL players lashed out at Wheeler on Twitter. Dez Bryant compared Wheeler's press coverage to Black athletes who are "destroyed" by the media when charged with similar crimes.

Women everywhere sympathize with Iyanna "Yaya" Mayweather (right) who is depressed and longing for her baby's father, NBA YoungBoy -- even though he's moved on with someone else.

Yaya, who recently gave birth to the 21-year-old rapper's 8th child, Kentrell Jr., took to social media to share a throwback photo of herself and YoungBoy when they were smitten with each other.

The 20-year-old's hopes and dreams were shattered when YoungBoy impregnated another woman -- while Yaya was still pregnant with his seed.

Yaya's followers begged her to let him go. They told her he's no good and he doesn't care about anyone but himself, but she doesn't care.

"I post what I want," she told her concerned fans on Instagram.

Yaya is content to be a loving single mom who waits by her phone for that one call that will never come.

Like most rappers, NBA YoungBoy has a plethora of children and baby mamas. When he's not making time for them, he's shacking up with his latest concubine, Instagram model Jazlyn Mychelle.

The couple was seen grocery shopping together in Houston, Texas last month.

Rapper T.I.'s wife Tameka "Tiny" Harris rushed to her husband's defense amid allegations that he held a gun to family friend Sabrina Peterson's head.

The 40-year-old rapper is a convicted felon and can't be in possession of a firearm.

Glam University owner Sabrina took to Instagram on Tuesday, Jan. 26, to make the shocking claim, writing: "The sad part about being a woman & BEING A BLACK WOMAN IS THIS! The public PRAISES OUR PREDATORS! @troubleman31 you PUT A GUN TO MY HEAD IN FRONT OF CHILDREN & I NEVER CALLED THE POLICE ON YOU! But for years you have painted me as the VILLAIN!"

Sabrina also leveled shocking allegations against T.I. and Tiny, claiming they are sexual predators who routinely drug, seduce, and sometimes physically abuse their female victims.

In an attempt to defend T.I. and Tiny, Tiny's BFF and hair stylist Shekinah went live on Instagram and claimed Sabrina happily participated in T.I. and Tiny's drug-fueled orgies and that she -- Sabrina -- actually recruited the girls from strip clubs and nightclubs for the celebrity couple.

Shekinah also accused bisexual Sabrina of "catching feelings" for Tiny, and she said if Tiny had responded to Sabrina's sexual advances none of this drama would be playing out on social media.

However, Tiny denied the allegations, and jumped to her spouse's defense in a comment published on Instagram blog The Shade Room, in which she claimed that Sabrina had long been harassing her family.

"Hold up... Now when did you say my husband assaulted you? Did you change your mind or change it back? What wit you today Pooh? I'm confused. Stop Harassing My Family. You strange. Everybody know you been special (face slicing seminar lady). Please get help but LEAVE US ALONE. [sic]"

Tiny also posted a message on her Instagram page, accusing Sabrina of clout chasing: "All clout ain't good clout... esp when it's revealed you're clout chasing [sic]."

While Sabrina has yet to respond directly to Tiny's comment, she did post on her Instagram page on Thursday night, Jan. 28, telling her followers she had "learned something this week".

"You never heal from the things you don't reveal," she wrote.

"Speaking to your pain, past experiences & getting them out allow you room to process them & cultivate some level of a healing plan. Also note your silence is THEIR POWER! They will do anything to discredit you and attempt to make you not feel or reveal your truth."

Rumor has it that T.I. has filed a restraining order against Sabrina.

Now that the Covid-19 outbreak is nearly over, Hollywood has gone into overdrive producing movies and television projects.

One upcoming project about racial identity is sure to have tongues wagging.

For three years, Rebecca Hall had been struggling to find financing for her racial identity movie, Passing.

The movie's premise -- about minority women passing as white -- was considered too controversial.

In 2018, Hall approached producing partners Nina Yang Bongiovi and Forest Whitaker, who had financially backed other films. They were blown away by Hall's script and decided to back her directorial debut.

The film — starring Tessa Thompson (right) and Ruth Negga — is shot in black-and-white. It will have its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on Jan. 30.

Thompson and Negga, who are both mixed race, explained why now is the perfect time for a film about women embracing their mixed-race heritage.

"As a British woman of Welsh and Nigerian parentage, I was struck by how resonant and contemporary the theme of Passing still is," Thompson said. "Even in this moment as some of the old binaries break down or become more fluid, others remain stubbornly resistant."

Negga added: "Being a mixed-race person, I think that it naturally informed Clare. Feelings of perhaps alienation, of being different, about trying to find your place. But it's very hard for me to find distinct experiences. And even if I did, I'm not sure if I'd be comfortable articulating them because I think sometimes that's one's personal journey to a character, really."

In a 2018 interview with Deadline, director Hall, who is also mixed race, said, "I came across the novel at a time when I was trying to reckon creatively with some of my personal family history, and the mystery surrounding my bi-racial grandfather on my American mother's side. In part, making this film is an exploration of that history, to which I've never really had access."

Marion County Sheriff's Office

An Indiana teenager was charged Thursday as an adult in the shooting deaths of 4 family members and a pregnant woman on Sunday, Jan. 24.

The Marion County Prosecutor's Office filed murder charges against Raymond Childs III on Thursday morning. He faces six counts of murder, one count of attempted murder and one count of carrying a handgun without a license.

Childs is represented by the Marion County Public Defender's office who entered a plea of not guilty for him at a hearing on Thursday.

Childs, an aspiring rapper, went on a shooting rampage hours after his father chastised him for sneaking out of the house to spend the night with his girlfriend without permission.

Police say Childs first shot his stepmother Kezzie Childs, 42, and his father, Raymond Child's Jr., as they lay in their bed. Childs Jr. pleaded for his life: "I'm sorry Raymond, I love you."

Childs then went from room to room shooting his 13-year-old sister Rita, his 18-year-old brother Elijah and Elijah's pregnant girlfriend Kiara Hawkins, 19.

Kiara, who was 9 months pregnant, was transported to a hospital, where she and her unborn son were pronounced dead.

Another brother, Xavier Childs, 15, managed to flee the home during the shootings. Childs chased Xavier down and shot him twice as he begged for his life.

Xavier said he told Childs: "I can give you forty dollars, please don't kill me."

"He just looked at me and then he shot me on the leg. I fell. He shot me in my arm. And then he tried to shoot me in my head but missed, I guess," Xavier told detectives.

Xavier limped to a neighbor's home and collapsed on the front porch. The neighbor called 911 to report the shootings at 4 a.m.

Xavier identified his brother as the gunman when he was interviewed by police at a hospital.

Hours later, Childs was taken into custody at a relative's home on Burkhart South Drive.

Xavier told police his brother used two different firearms – a 9-millimeter handgun and a mini draco semi-automatic pistol with an extended clip that fires rifle rounds.

The handgun was recovered at the scene. The semi-automatic pistol was found at the relative's home. Police say the guns belonged to Childs' father.

Pastor Kenneth Sullivan Jr, a friend of the family, told WTHR it's possible that the aspiring rapper was "acting out" the things that he rapped about when he coldly shot his family.

"If you're constantly feeding your mind negative things and destructive things, it won't be long before you act upon those things," Sullivan said.

In music videos posted on YouTube, Childs rapped about guns, money, drugs and killing people.

Childs will be transferred from a juvenile detention center to an adult jail to await trial. His next court date is set for April 21.

Indianapolis police Chief Randal Taylor called the killings the largest mass casualty shooting in the city in more than a decade.

A liquid nitrogen leak killed 6 people and injured 9 others at a Georgia food packing plant at 10:12 a.m. on Thursday.

Emergency medical personnel responded to a 911 call about people suffering from burns at Prime-Pak Foods, Inc. in Gainesville, about 60 miles northeast of Atlanta.

Hall County Fire and Rescue spokesman Zachary Brackett said a hazardous materials team also responded to the poultry packing plant, MSN reported.

A large number of employees were evacuated from the plant and multiple people were transported to hospitals.

Roads around the facility were shut down by police until the leak was contained.

A school bus took 130 employees to a nearby church to be evaluated by medical personnel.

Nitrogen is often used as a coolant in refrigeration systems to store food at extremely low temperatures.

Liquid nitrogen is a colorless, odorless, tasteless viscous gas that can't be detected by humans. Liquid nitrogen evaporates when exposed to warm air and it displaces the oxygen content in the air because nitrogen molecules are larger than oxygen molecules.

Humans die by asphyxiation as the nitrogen robs the body of oxygen. Inhaling pure nitrogen causes death in 40 seconds.
