Big Sean’s Home Was Reportedly Burglarized

Big Sean was reportedly the victim of a robbery while away in Dubai last week.

A recent trip to Dubai seems to have been a double-edged sword for Big Sean.

As the 27-year-old rapper toured the popular United Arab Emirates destination last week, his home was reportedly burglarized. TMZ reports that his California home was targeted as Sean was overseas, and thieves made away with $150,000 in jewelry, as well unpublished music. Authorities believe it was an inside job, as the perpetrators “made a beeline” for a mini-vault to carry out the well-timed plan.

Big Sean is not the first celebrity to become the victim of a robbery this year. Back in July, Chris Brown’s home was also raided by intruders. At the time of the incident, the singer’s aunt was reportedly held at gunpoint. Police have also suspected that Brown’s incident was an inside job, as thieves also made away with money and valuables from his home.

It looks like these stars are going to have to bulk up on security. In the meantime, check out some shots from Big Sean’s trip to Dubai below:

Family Of Murdered Florida Woman Awarded $500 Million In Civil Suit

Eighteen years after the death of Kalil McCoy, her surviving family has been awarded $500 million in damages.

In 2001, McCoy, 20, was shot in the head by Frederick Lee Wade, 19, after an argument over opening a window inside a vehicle. According to reports, Wade and two other men in the car at the time discarded McCoy's body and concocted a story about what happened. Her body was found two days later.

Lynette Roebuck, McCoy's mother blamed Wade for her daughter's death. He was originally sentenced to life in prison, but after winning a retrial, is now serving a reduced 45-year-prison sentence.

"Wade will still have a little bit of life left. But this will always be over your head. If you get a dime, it is not going to be your dime. It will be Kalil's dime," Roebuck said.

"He still gets an opportunity to get out of prison and live. He could be 70 on a cane walking around to a park or movies. But my daughter can't do any of that. This will make a statement and let people know,"

The other men involved, Kennard Deshun Mahone and Jonathon Marichal Brooks, served one year in county jail with 12 years probation. They were also named in the civil suit.

Despite the ruling, it's unlikely all three men will pay the sum in total. Wade has constantly said McCoy's death was an accident, claiming the gun went off accidentally.

Nelly Doesn't See 'The Big Deal' On Super Bowl Halftime Backlash

Many people have their thoughts on the upcoming Super Bowl, and how the big event's Halftime headliners (Maroon 5, Travis Scott and Big Boi) shouldn't be performing in protest of the NFL.

Nelly, who performed at the Super Bowl in 2001 and 2004, said that he doesn't see the issue with performing at the game since NFL owners don't get paid for the halftime performance.

"I don't see the big deal on people upset about who's performing at halftime, because, what people have to understand, if you're really against the NFL, the halftime show is not what you should be concerned about," he told TMZ's cameras at LAX. "If you're watching the NFL, if you're supporting your team, that's how [NFL owners] get paid. They don't get paid through the halftime show."

The topic of Colin Kaepernick reportedly expressing disappointment in Travis Scott for agreeing to perform came up in conversation. Reports initially stated that Scott consulted with Kaepernick about performing, but the NFL free agent reportedly never said he was okay with him performing. Nelly said that the former 49ers quarterback has his own reasons for being upset, but that doesn't negate the fact that halftime show doesn't generate money for the owners.

"I wouldn't say that he has a point in the sense of... I mean, [Kaep] has his own reasons. But again, if you watch the NFL every Sunday, you support your team, that's how they make their money," he continues. "If you're trying to make a stand against the NFL, you should probably not watch it on Sunday or you should not go to the games ... the halftime show is irrelevant."

A$AP Rocky Comments On R. Kelly: "He Needs To Be Dealt With"

A$AP Rocky stopped by Angie Martinez's Power 105.1 radio show to discuss his annual Yams Day celebration in honor of deceased A$AP Mob member, A$AP Yams. The event will take place Thursday (Jan. 17) at the Barclays Center.

While discussing the special guests that will take the stage, Rocky said that his "brother" French Montana is one of the MCs who will be there. When asked about French's recent comments about R. Kelly, Rocky decided to put his two cents in on the highly-publicized sexual misconduct allegations against the Pied Piper of R&B.

"Can I say something about that?" said Rocky when queried abut French's take on Kelly's legacy.  "I think [French] had a Kanye moment where he was trying to articulate something and his delivery just wasn't right. I think what he was trying to say was people like Bill Cosby, people like R. Kelly, [they] build up this legacy for a long time, and it just gets taken away."

Rocky continued by bringing up Kelly's marriage to the then-underage Aaliyah, expressing shock that her age on their marriage certificate was forged.

"Don't get me wrong- do I know if R. Kelly is a rapist and all that other stuff? It seems like he is," he exclaimed. "I mean, like he married Aaliyah when she was, like, 15... He married Aaliyah at 14, 15… how old was he when that alleged video came out? Too g*d damn old. I look at it like this. If that man has a sickness, he needs to be dealt with. He done beat the court dates… it goes to show the whole system is corrupted… R. Kelly was the King of R&B… and this motherf**ker now is known for being a sex pedophile.”

Watch his comments above around the 16:40 mark.
