Will Smith's assault on comedian Chris Rock at the 2022 Oscars has already spawned a copycat incident in Atlanta.

Smith single-handedly destroyed his career when he walked onstage and slapped comedian Chris Rock for joking about his wife.

Cell phone video uploaded to Twitter.com on Tuesday by @Glock_Topickz shows rapper Tip "T.I." Harris snatching a female comedienne's mic for joking about his sexual assault allegations.

The incident happened at Our Bar ATL on Edgewood Avenue in southwest Atlanta.

The comedienne, Lauren K, held her own when an outraged T.I. told her to "stop playing wit me!"

She reminded him that "this is my sh*t!" just before he snatched her mic out of her hand. Security guards surrounded them while they talked it out onstage.

Afterwards, Lauren K said the incident unfolded after the "No Mercy" rapper heckled her from the audience and told her to take her wig off. She responded, "I'll take my wig off, when you address those allegations."

T.I., who had his own mic, began yelling at Lauren to stop talking about the allegations that he sexually assaulted multiple women. No charges were ever brought against him.

The enraged rapper verbally abused the aspiring comedienne. At one point he called her a b*tch and ni**a," as boos rained down on him from the crowd.

The 41-year-old Grammy-winning rapper has embarked on a new career as an aspiring comedian. He routinely hones his new craft at comedy shows around Atlanta.

Kevin Samuels read young Willow Smith's letter to the late Tupac Shakur that recently surfaced online.

Tupac Shakur died from gunshot wounds in Las Vegas on September 13, 1996 — 4 years before Willow was born.

MTO News unearthed a letter Willow wrote to Tupac Shakur when she was just 11 years old.

In the letter, Willow begged 2Pac to come back to life so she and her mom, Jada Pinkett Smith, could be happy.

Samuels read Willow's letter aloud — but not before passing judgment on Will and Jada as parents.

"You could become one of the biggest stars in Hollywood, squeaky clean image, women love you around the world — and this is what's going on in your house? Your wife is in love with a dead man," Samuels said in a video posted on his YouTube channel.

Samuels then read Willow's mournful letter to the deceased rap icon:

"I know you are alive someplace. I think that my mommy really misses you. Can you please come back? Can you come back so me and my mommy can be happy? I wish you were here. I really do."

"Why is Will Smith's daughter writing a letter to Tupac?" Samuels asked. "What is being said in that house to get this little girl - not writing Santa Claus, not writing the Easter Bunny, writing Tupac?

Rumor has it that Jada and Tupac had a torrid, but brief, love affair. Jada previously denied the rumors.

According to TMZ, the pregnancy rumors started last week after a video of Rae and Insecure co-star Yvonne Orji showed Rae wearing a skintight outfit that accentuated her bloated midriff.

Smith was shocked and slapped the guy on the chin before security escorted him down the red carpet.

"Hey, man, what the hell is your problem?" Smith could be heard saying as he stormed off. "He tried to kiss me on my mouth."

Smith later explained the incident to David Letterman, who asked him why he "beat up a guy who was trying to hug" him.

"I didn't beat up a guy!" Smith said. "He says, 'I'm your biggest fan, can I have a hug?' So I go to give this joker a hug, and he tries to lean in and kiss me!"

Sediuk apologized to Smith, but he was later fired by a Ukraine TV station for harassing other American stars – including trying to kiss Brad Pitt, who got a restraining order against him.

A viral video shows an illegal skimming overlay on a card reader at a 7-Eleven store on Shaw Avenue in Fresno, California.

The skimming device was discovered by Twitter user Joseph Harris who uploaded the video online. "Be careful, y'all," Harris says in the video as he lifts the illegal device from a card reader.

A skimmer is designed to capture credit/debit card information and PIN numbers at bank ATMs, department stores, gas stations and convenience stores.

Sgt. Martin VanOverbeek with the Fresno Police Department's Financial Crimes Unit says some skimming devices "have the ability to store the info and connect via Bluetooth while parked outside to download the skimmed card info."

He said the skimming device at the 7-Eleven is "one of the more sophisticated overlay devices out there."

Once the criminals get your card and PIN numbers, they go on shopping sprees and drain your bank account.

The 7-Eleven employees told police they did not install the device over the card reader.

Sgt. VanOverbeek believes them:

"Despite some of the negative comments on the business/employees, it is highly unlikely they knew the device was present," he tells Fox26 News. "What has happened in the past is the clerk is distracted by another suspect asking to see something behind the counter or in the back of the store while the overlay is installed on a functional Point Of Sale (POS) device by a second suspect."

He said it only takes seconds to install the devices when employees aren't looking. Later, they return to the store to remove the device and collect the data on it.

Twitter users offered tips on how to detect a skimming device on a card reader. Some of the tips include tapping the device to see if it sounds like cheap plastic. And feel around the card reader for loose parts.

"Wait, when was this taken? I didn't know she's currently pregnant?" To which @lolaloveu5 responded, "A day ago! I just found out too."

ALEXJR / BACKGRID

After the rumor spread like wildfire online, @lolaloveu5 clarified, "In my defense, I didn't even see she was pregnant. When I said I just found out it cuz y'all pointed it out to me. I had no bad intentions."

The rumors came weeks after Ciara's husband Russell Wilson was traded to the Denver Broncos from the Seattle Seahawks.

It seems Ciara is hesitant to expand her family because she turns 37 in October. Doctors warn that pregnant women over 35 are high-risk and their unborn babies may face complications.

A Texas woman went viral over the weekend when she tweeted about her son's father, who was released from prison after serving 18 years.

The woman, whose Twitter handle is @KalitafromMemphis, wrote:

"My oldest son dad been locked up since he was six months old my son is now 18. His dad has been home for almost a year now, when he first got home he promised he would buy my son his first car."

She continued:

"he made me promise that I would not intervene and allow him the time to get my son a car I agreed very reluctantly. If you know me and my kids you know they are spoiled and I'm OK with that but I wanted to give this man that opportunity."

"My son father has worked two jobs, paid off his parole and probation fees, got on his feet, and after driving for a day and a half stops included he will be here in 30 minutes with my son's first car. It does my heart a lot of good to know that he kept his promise."

The story had the potential to go left, but it has a happy ending. Her baby daddy kept his word and bought his son a car!

Kalita posted a video of her baby daddy delivering the vehicle to their son.

The other man in the video is her ex's twin brother. He was there over the years to help raise both boys while his brother was locked up.

Even though a woman can't raise a boy to be a man, Kalita is clearly a devoted mom who put her sons first and made sure their dads were in their lives. She is an inspiration to boy moms everywhere!

Dr. Phil says women who love men behind bars have low-self esteem. However, Pearl says she is a confident woman who knows a good man when she sees one.
