Kim Kardashian has given rapper Gunna renewed hope in his efforts to secure his release from the Fulton County Jail in Atlanta.

According to Billboard, Gunna's attorneys filed a writ of habeas corpus on Tuesday in a last ditch effort to get him out of jail.

Gunna, real name Sergio Kitchens, was twice denied bond at previous hearings.

He was arrested in May, alongside rapper Young Thug and 26 associates, on RICO gang charges. Fulton County DA Fani Willis accused the gang members of committing 80% of murders and violent crimes in Atlanta.

But Gunna's attorneys insist he is not a gang member or a killer.

Reality TV star and aspiring lawyer Kim Kardashian is now calling for Gunna's release on social media.

"#FreeGunna [Free emoji]," she tweeted, while posting a screenshot of her tweet on her Instagram Story.

Kim has advocated for criminal justice reform, and has secured the release of nonviolent drug offenders from prisons.

So far, Kim has had no luck assisting former No Limit rapper C-Murder, who was sentenced to life in prison for the murder of 16-year-old Steve Thomas in 2009.

C-Murder is the boyfriend of Kim's pal, R&B singer Monica.

Police issued an alert warning people to be aware of their surroundings and stop wearing expensive Rolex watches and diamond jewelry in restaurants and bars.

Watches can be left at home since everyone carries cell phones that display the time.


Expensive watches, designer handbags, and jewelry should be worn to private events and parties, not to run errands, since you make yourself an easy target for broke criminals.

The LAPD issued similar warnings when robbing crews followed unsuspecting shoppers home from retail stores and supermarkets.

Police arrested one thug who shot a man wearing a Rolex watch as he walked in an alley near his store on April 10.

Jamario Kevin Ray, 22, was arrested a few days later and charged with attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon and being a felon in possession of a firearm, the Post reported.

His next hearing is scheduled on Wednesday.

The rapper, who was born Dieuson Octave, 25, was pulled over for driving with an expired tag and dark window tinting in Ft. Lauderdale. A search of his bulletproof Dodge Durango SUV turned up 31 white tablets of oxycodone and more than $75,000 in cash.

"How tf you send a ni**a to jail for my own medication?" Black tweeted. "Then tarnish my character like im trafficking oxycontin ??? But im posta sit here and dont talk about it? [sic]"

Black also accused the highway patrol officers of targeting him.

Police have arrested gang members who targeted the homes of rich and athletes around the metro Atlanta area.

Four gang members were arrested Sunday after attempting a burglary at a townhouse where one of rapper Future's baby mamas lives with her child.

One suspect was hospitalized after he tried to bail out of a moving car while fleeing, police say.

The four gang members may be linked to a series of violent home invasions targeting rich celebrities across metro Atlanta, WSBTV reported.

One of those celebrities is Marlo Hampton, longtime cast member of Bravo's Real Housewives of Atlanta reality TV series.


Gang members kicked in the front door of Hampton's Sandy Springs home on July 1.

"When I heard the boom, when I heard my nephew scream — and I knew that scream was a scream of fear -- my heart dropped," Hampton told Channel 2 investigative reporter Mark Winne.

Hampton said she armed her security system before the gang kicked in her front door. Sandy Springs police arrived within minutes of her 911 call, but the gang had already fled.

"I just thank God and we're covered in the blood of Jesus and I'm here to share this story with you," Hampton told Winne.

Hampton gave a word of warning to other celebrities who show off their luxury lifestyles on social media.

"My main concern is, I want all the ladies ... I want everyone to be aware if you are posting, if you do have luxury items, be careful," she said.


Authorities suspect the gang members may have also targeted the DeKalb County home of rapper Gunna, who is in jail awaiting trial on a RICO gang charge.

Investigators told Winne that the gang targets the homes of high-profile celebrities, professional athletes or social media influencers who post their lifestyles on the Internet.

Sandy Springs police are asking the public's help finding Jeremy Caldwell, a.k.a. J-Roc, an alleged gang ringleader wanted for 33 charges, including Sandy Springs home invasions.

"He's got a red falcon on the side of his right eye," said Sgt. Matt McGinnis with the Sandy Springs Police Department.

McGinnis advised the public not to approach Caldwell.

"They need to contact 911 immediately. He is considered armed and dangerous," McGinnis told Winne.

Crime Stoppers Atlanta is offering a reward of up to $12,000 for information leading to the arrest of Caldwell.

Georgia's top prosecutor Fani Willis is set to announce charges against drill rapper Lil Durk soon.

According to MTO News, Durk's legal team is preparing for a possible criminal indictment against their client.

An insider told MTO News, "Durk's lawyers say that Georgia prosecutors have arrested people [associated with Durk's label] OTF and are offering them deals to flip on Durk."

The insider continued, "It's only a matter of time before someone [flips] and accepts a deal to implicate Durk."

The insider continued: "They're trying to link Durk to a gang. He's not with a gang. OTF is a label not a gang."

That's the same argument Young Thug's attorneys made about his Young Slime Life (YSL) record label and his alleged Young Stoner Life (YSL) gang.

Rappers Young Thug and Gunna are currently being held in jail without bond until their trials in January 2023.

Street sources say Durk is the leader of the Only Trey Folks (OTF) gang, a branch of the Black Disciples gang in Chicago.

Durk, real name Derrick Banks, seems to know his time is running out. He deactivated his Instagram page over the weekend, but he reactivated it on Monday to earn some cash.

The 29-year-old Chicago native posted a Marc Jacobs campaign photo on IG on Monday before locking his page down again.

The image shows him modeling clothing from Marc Jacobs' Monogram Fall 2021 Collection.

Durk wears the woven Italian denim oversized jeans (retail $495), a white monogram oversized hoodie ($395), and he accessorized with a monogram denim large tote handbag (retail $350).

Martin's high-powered attorney Marty Singer denies the "disgusting" allegations.

"Unfortunately, the person who made this claim is struggling with deep mental health challenges," Singer told PEOPLE exclusively in a statement. "Ricky Martin has, of course, never been — and would never be — involved in any kind of sexual or romantic relationship with his nephew."

He continued, "The idea is not only untrue, it is disgusting. We all hope that this man gets the help he so urgently needs. But, most of all, we look forward to this awful case being dismissed as soon as a judge gets to look at the facts."

Earlier this month, a complaint was filed against Martin under Law 54, also known as the Domestic Abuse Prevention and Intervention Act. A protective order was issued to the complainant.

The Grosby Group / BACKGRID

Police had trouble locating the pop star when they visited his home in an affluent neighborhood in Puerto Rico, NBC News reported.

According to reports, the order states that the two men were in a relationship for 7 months and broke up 2 months ago, but Martin allegedly took the breakup hard and was seen hanging around the petitioner's house on numerous occasions, according to PEOPLE.

A hearing is scheduled for July 21, one week after Martin released his latest EP, Play.

The news comes after Martin's ex-manager Rebecca Drucker sued him for more than $3 million in unpaid commissions, according to legal documents obtained by PEOPLE that were filed with the Los Angeles Central District Court on June 29.


Drucker's complaint described a "potentially career-ending allegation" made against Martin in September 2020. She said Martin collapsed on the floor after reading a letter containing the allegations.

She claimed that through her intervention, Martin "emerged unscathed and proceeded with his professional resurgence."

A Maryland man posing as a federal officer has been charged in a series of attacks on gay men in a Washington D.C. park.

Michael Thomas Pruden, 48, is accused of assaulting five men at Meridian Hill Park in Washington, D.C., the Department of Justice said.

Prosecutors say Pruden posed as a U.S. Park Police officer and assaulted men who solicited sex from other men at a Washington D.C., park over a three-year period.

Meridian Hill Park, also called Malcolm X Park, is "informally known ... as a meeting place for men seeking consensual sex with other men," a DOJ spokesperson said in a news release on Thursday.

The DOJ said Pruden, posing as a Park Police officer, approached men, shined a light in their faces and gave "police-style directives," according to the news release. He then sprayed the men with mace, before attacking them.

Four of the victims were assaulted because of their "actual or perceived sexual orientation," according to the indictment.

Chilling video footage shows heavily armed Uvalde, Texas police fleeing down a hallway as a crazed gunman shot school children on May 24.

The gunman killed 19 children and two teachers in adjoining classrooms at Robb Elementary School, while police waited in a hallway and did nothing.

Surveillance footage from cameras in a hallway inside the school shows the cowardly police running for their lives during the horrendous attack.

The 77-minute video, first obtained by the Austin American-Statesman, shows a small boy peek down a hallway seconds before the gunman entered a classroom and began shooting. The terrified child is seen running back down the hall.

The screams of children being slaughtered was removed from the video footage.

The video shows heavily armed police officers amassing in the same hallway. The cops just stood there as the gunman shot more children. For over an hour they waited in the hallway — sometimes checking their social media accounts and making cell phone calls — instead of neutralizing the 18-year-old gunman and saving lives.

At one point, the cowardly cops fled down the hallway as the gunman shot at them before barricading himself behind an unlocked classroom door.

Afterwards, police carefully crafted their press statements to portray themselves as heroes.

Many of the children who died could have been saved if the police had acted sooner.

Shockingly, the Uvalde chief of police who gave the stand down orders, was sworn in as a member of the Uvalde City Council just weeks after the tragedy.

Pete Arredondo has since resigned from his seat on the City Council, but he is still police chief of the Uvalde school district.
