Romeo Says He And Bow Wow "Should've Worked Together" During Their Rap Careers

In an extensive Instagram post, Romeo recalled that he and Bow Wow, born Shad Moss, should've worked together from the studio to Hollywood.

When both of these then-adolescent rappers made it to the height of their careers in the new millennium, Lil Bow Wow and Lil Romeo were pitted as adversaries in the music industry.

Over the years, the pair have put that chatter behind them which has left Romeo remorseful in not getting a chance to actually work with the CSI: Cyber actor.

In an extensive Instagram post, Romeo recalled that he and Bow Wow, born Shad Moss, should've collaborated from the studio to Hollywood. "The funny thing is, I never looked at Bow as competition. The world made it that way," he said.

The former USC student said that Moss also served as a "big lil bro" to him, stating that at the time of their reported strain, he was 11 and Moss was 14. "Although we had different views, he inspired me as a kid," he said. "Sadly this generation only cares about now, and oddly laughs at history."

This post arrives a few weeks after Moss announced his retirement from the music game. The news came with mixed reactions from spectators, but for Romeo, he's happy that Moss is still around to celebrate his accolades.

"My pops always taught me to give people their roses while they could still smell them," he writes. "Just some facts about the Lil Romeo x Lil Bow Wow saga for the fans."

Dear young Superstar, as kids we should've worked together, we should've toured together, we should've made movies together. The funny thing is, I never looked at Bow as competition. The world made it that way. When he was 14 I was only 11. From them late nights of us and @chrisbrownofficial hooping at UCLA (Fyi I bust everybody ass ha), to my teen dance parties, he was there. What the WORLD doesn't know is that ... Once upon a time, Bow was like my big lil bro. Although we had different views, he inspired me as a kid. Sadly this generation only cares about now, and oddly laughs at history. My pops always taught me to give people their roses while they could still smell them. Just some facts about the Lil Romeo x Lil Bow Wow saga for the fans. #tbt #wordswithrome

Nicki Minaj's Boyfriend Kenneth Petty Received 18 Violations During Prison Stint

Nicki Minaj's new boyfriend, Kenneth Petty has a very troubled past.

On Friday (Dec. 14), TMZ revealed court documents disclosing Petty's history of disciplinary actions while he was an inmate in New York for manslaughter from 2006 to 2013.

When he entered the correctional facility, he was reportedly written up for creating a disturbance. Later during his stint, he was hit with a slew of disciplinary actions following a series of violent actions that included fighting, making terroristic threats, and "disobeying a direct order."

In 2009, prison faculty placed him in solitary confinement for four months as part of being reprimanded for nine different violations. Petty lost privileges that included the usage of the inmate telephone service, recreational activity, and the prison canteen.

In addition to his prison violations, Petty is a convicted sex offender. At the age of 16, he was tried as an adult served a four-year sentence for attempted rape of a minor.

Petty, who hails from the same borough as Nicki, Queens, knew the platinum-selling rap star since she was a teenager. They dated for a short period years prior to reuniting.

Minaj posted various photos of her and Petty going on a vacation getaway earlier this month. Sources close to Minaj told the celebrity gossip website that the 36-year-old hip-hop artist is  "happier than she's been in years" with Petty.

Sandy Hook Elementary Evacuates After Bomb Threat On 6th Anniversary Of Mass Shooting

Sandy Hook Elementary School was reportedly forced to evacuate its students and administration on Friday (Dec. 14), after receiving a bomb threat, CNN reports. The incident occurred on the sixth anniversary of the school's tragic mass shooting.

Newtown, Connecticut Police Lt. Aaron Bahamonde stated that the threat didn't appear to be substantial, but they decided to  evacuate the facility as an extra precaution.

Bomb squads reportedly swept the school and surrounding area for explosive devices but did not discover anything on the property. They later concluded that there was no immediate threat. The school administration dismissed students and faculty for the rest of the day however, considering the previous incident.

As previously noted, Sandy Hook endured a horrific mass shooting on Dec. 14, 2012, in which 20-year-old Adam Lanza shot and killed 20 children between six and seven years old, as well as six adult, staff members.

Earlier this month, thousands of documents were released about Lanza that revealed his mental state and social status in the years leading up to the shooting.

The shooting is not believed to be in connection to the recent string of bomb scares around the nation that targeted major politicians including the former first families Barack and Michelle Obama and Bill and Hillary Clinton.
