B.o.B Is Emo Like Drake

Drizzy isn't the only young rapper unashamed to put his emotions on front street. Atlanta's B.o.B is just as poignant, evident in "Don't Let Me Listen," an introspective second single off his debut album, The Adventures of Bobby Ray. Self-produced, the country boy reminisces about his struggles and triumphs, fearing that they may soon slip from beneath him: "I was shooting for stars on a Saturday night/They say what goes up must come down/But don't let me fall." Subliminal talk for "buy my album"?

Police Conducted Welfare Check On Wendy Williams Over Alleged Poisoning

Police reportedly conducted a wellness check on Wendy Williams at her New Jersey home earlier this year after an anonymous caller claimed the TV personality's husband, Kevin Winter was poisoning her, People reports.

The incident reportedly occurred during Williams' television hiatus in Jan. 2019. According to the police report obtained by People, police arrived at Williams' residence shortly after the call was made. Hunter reportedly answered the door, claiming his wife was recovering from an illness.

Authorities noted that Hunter was "hesitant" to let the police inside the house but eventually did. There, they found Williams in bed with a "blanket covering her from neck to toe." Williams told the cops she was recovering from a broken shoulder.

Williams reportedly "became tearful" when they asked if there was any truth to the poisoning allegation, but she ultimately denied that any wrongdoing was taking place. Police said Hunter "then responded saying something to the effect of there had never been any calls to his house regarding domestic violence."

While the couple might not have received calls to the house, there have been rumors of domestic abuse. Many assumed that was one of many reasons why Williams filed for divorce against Hunter earlier this month. Even so, the Williams maintained that she was leaving on good terms.

"I am going through a time of self-reflection and am trying to right some wrongs,” he said a recent episode of her self-titled show. "No matter what the outcome is or what the future holds, we are still The Hunter Family and I will continue to work with and fully support my wife in this business and through any and all obstacles she may face living her new life of sobriety, while I also work on mine."

After Teairra Mari's Arrest, 50 Cent Notes Additional Money Owed From Lost Revenge Porn Case

Teairra Mari has just stepped into deeper hot water and 50 Cent is watching it all from the sidelines with a straight face and his hand held out. Back in January, the singer and Love & Hip Hop star was unfortunately on the losing end of a case that sought to bring 50 Cent to justice for leaking a compromising photo of her.

The court ordered Mari to pay Fif $30,000 to cover a portion of his legal fees, but when she was served papers in the airport, she publicly refused to pay him a cent. (She even went on to preview a song about it.) At the time, the Power figurehead's response was straight to the point. “You cannot run from the law, you have been served," he wrote in a mocking Instagram post. "Better give me my money b**ch.”

To take matters a step further, Teairra Mari has now been arrested for not paying 50 Cent what he asked for, and has received an addition to the amount owed. "You best be coming up with my money," he wrote on Instagram, reacting to the news of her arrest. "I’m a need 75K now after they add all additional legal fees."
