Ye's fans are worried after the mega producer shared disturbing cover art for his new single "My life was never easy."

The shocking cover art shows a skinned monkey covered in blood. The original image was taken by British fashion photographer Nick Knight for Big Magazine in 1997.

Knight has collaborated with Ye, formerly Kanye West, on the rapper's short film Jesus Is King (2019) and his 2013 single "Bound 2."

Ye posted the image on Instagram, which left fans shocked and expressing outrage.

Sandrarose.com will not post a link to the image, but it is still live on Ye's Instagram page.

Meanwhile, Ye is under investigation by the LAPD for allegedly punching a fan who asked for an autograph.

The incident occurred on Wednesday night outside the Soho Warehouse Club in Downtown Los Angeles.

Video of the incident shows a man on the ground as Ye screams at a woman who is attempting to calm him down.

"Give me your hand. I am your family," the woman tells him. "No! Get away from me! Ain't no hand! You were supposed to talk to her," Ye screams repeatedly.

According to TMZ, the incident happened after Ye partied with girlfriend Julia Fox inside the club.

The case is under investigation as misdemeanor battery, a crime that carries a maximum jail sentence of 6 months.

Argentinian reporter Carlos Ferrara suffered an apparent heart attack and collapsed during a live news broadcast on Thursday.

Ferrara was reporting outside a COVID testing center in Buenos Aires, when he suddenly collapsed while speaking to a colleague.

At the end of the segment, Ferrara said to Channel 9 host Claudio Perez, "Sorry Claudio, sorry."

Claudio asked "What happened? What happened?" as the camera panned to Ferrara lying face down on the sidewalk. A small pool of blood spreads outward from Ferrara's head.

Claudio shouted "No!" then composed himself and said, "Well, Carlos had some difficulty. They will surely attend to him. We are going to make a cut."

Ferrara is the latest reporter to collapse during a live broadcast.

Last week, Brazilian reporter Rafael Silva, 36, collapsed while hosting "Alterosa." The camera quickly cut away to pre-filmed footage while the TV crew rushed to Silva's side.
 

According to Mediate.com, Silva suffered 5 heart attacks in the ambulance on the way to the hospital.

Both journalists reportedly received Covid-19 mRNA injections before suffering heart attacks.

Previously, Silva announced that he had received the third booster shot on Dec. 28. It isn't clear when Ferrara received his booster.

The incidents of reporters collapsing on air is beginning to strike fear in the hearts of news reporters everywhere.

"Another isolated case of illness in a young boy with no history of health problems," Federal Deputy Carla Zambelli tweeted along with a video of the incident.

The fallout continues over a video posted by Zonnique Pullins in which she refuses to spoil for her 1-year-old daughter, Hunter James.

In the video, Zonnique pointed to a toy box and said:

"Those are Hunter's toys. She has the option of playing with those toys every day. And that's it, b*tch. That's it. She thinks she's about to have a bunch of toys because she's T.I. and Tiny's grandchild? You ain't nobody. Sit yo' ass down. Wait until your birthday..."

Zonnique added:

"Poor Hunter. She'll be alright. People out here don't get sh*t, man. Think she's about to be getting special treatment? Girl, bye."

Zonnique's followers were concerned enough to tag her mother, Tameka "Tiny" Harris, who lavished Zonnique with everything her heart desired.

When Tiny was on the road with her husband, rapper T.I., her mom, Diane Cottle Pope, stepped in to fill her shoes.

Zonnique was loved by everyone. So her detached behavior toward her only child is disturbing.

In a new video posted this week, an embarrassed Zonnique clarified her statement about her daughter.

"I meant she's not a celebrity. Obviously she is, because the streets can't stop talking about her. And I said I wasn't going to spoil her -- I was joking. Obviously she's spoiled already. If I don't spoil her, she has a million other family members that will."

Hunter is Zonnique's daughter by aspiring rapper Bandhunta Izzy.

Instagram models who hope to secure a plane ticket from rapper Young Thug will be disappointed.

The rapper shared a video on his Instagram Story explaining why women should look elsewhere for that plane ticket.

Unlike his rap brethren, Thug isn't flying women anywhere. In fact, he's not even taking a woman on baecation.

"I don't fly b*tches nowhere, P! I don't fly b*tches in town. I don't fly b*tches nowhere. I'm not even no baecation type of ni**a... Why would I, what? What?"

He continued:

"I don't fly b*tches nowhere. No b*tch traveling off of me. I'm not that type of ni**a. You know whatumsayin? Especially when I'm suited and booted..."

Thug didn't provide any context for his video announcement, but a model probably mistook him for a travel agent and got her feelings hurt.

It all started with a case of mistaken identity at a Las Vegas hotel. Singer Jason Derulo swung at two fans who mistook him for another R&B singer -- Usher.

Police sources tell TMZ cops were called to the ARIA hotel early Tuesday morning after Derulo threw punches at the men.

Eyewitnesses say Jason and one of the men were passing each other on an escalator when the guy shouted, "Hey, Usher! F*** you, bitch!!!"

Jason apparently took offense to the disrespect and lunged at the guy. He punched the guy in the face, sending him sprawling to the floor.

Jason allegedly slapped the second man just for breathing. Security stepped in to break up the fracas. Video shows Jason pushed his burly bodyguard aside to get at the guys.

Apparently, Jason had gotten into it earlier with the same two guys for calling him "Usher."

At press time, the 2 victims declined to press charges, but there's always the possibility of a lawsuit, says TMZ. Jason was not arrested, but he did get a trespassing notice from ARIA Hotel, and was promptly thrown off the property.

Who knew Kevin Samuels had a shady past? They say he was practically chased out of Oklahoma for allegedly scamming high end stores and fragrance houses.

Before Kevin reinvented himself as a relationship guru on YouTube in 2020, he was allegedly a scammer who scraped by as a fashion consultant and cologne expert.

In a YouTube video, an unidentified sales rep at Bloomingdales called Kevin a "con artist" who made a habit of buying expensive colognes and returning the bottles the next day for a refund.

The sales rep claims Kevin made a nuisance of himself in Bloomingdale's and other high end stores in Atlanta.

He allegedly threw his weight around, demanding special treatment in Bloomingdales.

"He's a f****** con artist who comes into stores begging for fragrances," the sales rep said.

After studying video algorithms, Kevin transitioned from reviewing colognes to degrading women on YouTube.

He studied YouTube videos by Tommy Sotomayor and other women haters and basically stole their content.

Kevin, 51, reinvented himself as a suited and booted gentleman with a bit more culture and savoir-faire than Tommy and the others.

Kevin grew his YT following by degrading and insulting Black women under the pretense of helping them to see the error of their ways.

Before long, Kevin had amassed a loyal following of more than 1 million subscribers on YouTube and finally managed to pay off back child support for his teenage daughter in May of last year.

Watch the video below.

Police body camera footage captured the moment a Naples police officer fatally shot a tiger attacking a cleaner at the Naples Zoo, according to DailyMail.com.

Police say the cleaner, River Rosenquist, was supposed to be cleaning the public restrooms when he entered an unauthorized area of the zoo and attempted to feed or pet Eko, an 8-year-old Malayan tiger.

Rosenquist, who works for a third-party cleaning service, stuck his arm through the fence of Eko's enclosure and nearly lost his life and limb when Eko clamped down on it.

A police officer responding to the 911 call from a zoo employee arrived to a horrific sight. "Oh my god, is that real?" he asked a zoo employee.

The graphic video shows Rosenquist lying outside the fence, screaming in pain as Eko attempted to pull his mangled arm through the fence.

"Please help me! Please help me!" Rosenquist cried.

After kicking the fence, the officer asked if anyone had a tranquilizer gun to sedate the large animal.

Rosenquist screamed, "I'm gonna die! Shoot him! Shoot him! Shoot him!"

"You're gonna have to shoot it man," said a medic. The officer fired a single gunshot into Eko's head, as the wounded tiger grunted and fled into the darkness.

As medics tended to Rosenquist, a zoo veterinarian arrived and entered the enclosure to find Eko deceased.

Rosenquist was transported to a local hospital. His condition is unknown. It is not clear if he will face criminal charges.

"Our deputy did everything he could do in that situation and he ultimately made the only possible decision he could in order to save this man's life," Collier County Sheriff Kevin Rambosk said in a press release.

"This was a tragic encounter at our world-class zoo facility. We value our community partnership with the Naples Zoo and their focus on conservation and education."

According to federal court records, Patricia Cornwall injured passengers and flight attendants during an altercation on flight 2790 from Tampa to Atlanta.

Cornwall, 51, was making her way from the restroom back to her seat near the front of the plane when her path was blocked by a flight attendant's cart in the narrow aisle.

The flight attendant asked Cornwall to take an empty seat in the back until she was done serving passengers. Cornwall, who is white, replied, "What am I, Rosa Parks?"

An 80-year-old passenger sitting nearby took offense to Cornwall's remark and told her that she "isn't black... this isn't Alabama and this isn't a bus."

A viral video, shared on Twitter by ATL Uncensored, shows what happened next.

Cornwall became irate and snapped at the older gentleman who had pulled his face mask down to eat.

"Put your f****** mask on," she said.

"Sit down Karen. You're a God d***ed Karen, sit down," said the man, using a pejorative term for angry white women.

"Don't you dare talk to me like that... stand your a** up," said Cornwall, who then proceeded to slap and spit on the unidentified passenger.

Cornwall was restrained by other passengers until the plane landed at Atlanta's Hartsfield Airport. The FBI took her into custody since she was in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 113(a)(4), assault on board a plane.

According to Heavy.com, Cornwall was released on $20,000 unsecured bond during a court hearing on Monday, Dec. 27.

She is banned from traveling on major airlines, except for her flight back home to California. She can also fly back to Georgia for future court appearances, as long as she takes her anxiety medications.

According to Heavy.com, Cornwall is a luxury realtor with Coldwell Banker Realty in California. She is a former Playboy model and former Raiders cheerleader. She also appeared in a 1990s episode of "Baywatch" under the name Patty Breton.
