Jagged Edge's Kyle Norman Accused Of Trying To Stab His Son During Drunken Fight

The 40-year-old singer was arrested after a violent incident in his Georgia home. 

Jagged Edge member Kyle Norman was arrested after allegedly trying to stab his during a drunken a fight at his Georgia home in September, reports Bossip. According to documents recently obtained by the site, Norman had to be restrained to stop him from beating his son, who’s age is unclear.

The singer’s wife, Merrika, was asleep at around 5 a.m., when she heard Norman fighting the son in another room and called the police. A cousin eventually restrained Norman but that attack reportedly continued as he “followed his son downstairs to the living room,” and “punched a wall” as he approached.

The police report also states that blood stains were found throughout the disheveled house, and that Norman was attempting to “clean up the area where the altercation took place,” as an officer tried to interview him.

Norman purportedly told the cop, “Nobody[’s] going to talk to you, you need to get out of my house.”

The officer reported smelling a “strong odor” of alcohol on Norman’s breath.

When questioned about the blood stains on his shirt, Norman told the cop that it was related to an earlier “motorcycle incident.” Additionally, Norman refused to allow his wife to speak with the officer, and locked the door.

“Ms Norman informed me that she does not feel safe with him and he has put his hands on her before,” states the police report.

The report goes on to reveal that Norman was “detained,” yet despite his arrest for domestic violence, battery, property damage and obstruction cruelty to children in the 3rd degree, a lawyer for the 40-year-old crooner says the story isn’t accurate.

"At this point, there’s no formal charges, no disposition," the lawyer told the site. "As far as we’re concerned, Mr. Norman is innocent of any wrongdoing."

The initial incident trigged a probation violation, leading to Norman being arrested on Nov. 2 and released two days later.

Norman faces up to 12 months for the cruelty charge lodged against him for "allowing a minor to witness violence," states Bossip. He is currently serving a 15-year probation sentence after he was arrested in 2015 for shoving an engagement ring down his now wife's throat.

Grammy-Winning Producer Detail Arrested On Sexual Assault Charges

Detail, the Grammy-winning producer behind hits for Drake, Beyonce, Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, and more, was arrested on a slew of sexual assault charges on Wednesday (Aug. 5). According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s department, Detail was slapped with 15 sexual assault charges and five additional felony assault related charges, stemming from alleged incidents that occurred between 2010 and 2018.

LASD’s Special Victims Bureau investigated the allegations and submitted the case to the L.A. County D.A. for review in January. The D.A. notified the SVB of the charges against Detail on July 31. An arrest warrant was issued with a bail amount of $6,290,000.

Details has been accused of sexual misconduct by multiple artists including Tinashe, Jessie Reyes, Bebe Rexha. In 2019, Detail lost a $15 million lawsuit brought on by recording artist, Kristin Buch, who claimed that he raped her repeatedly. At least two of his former assistants also filed lawsuits, and another up-and-coming singer, Peyton Ackley, filed a restraining order against him.

The Detroit native, whose birth name is Noel Fisher, won a Grammy in 2015 for “Drunk and Love,” and received two nominations for working on Beyonce’s self titled album and producing Khalifa’s single, “We Dem Boyz.”

Based on the “nature of the allegations,” detectives believe that there may be additional victims. Read the LASD's full announcement below.

Woman Files Lawsuit Accusing Takeoff Of Raping Her At L.A. Party

Migos rapper Takeoff is being sued by a woman who claims he raped her at a party in Los Angeles in June. The unnamed woman, identified as “Jane Doe,” accuses the rapper of sexual battery, assault, false imprisonment, intentional infliction of emotional distress, negligent infliction of emotional distress, gender violence, and civil rights violations.

According the legal documents, the woman says that she arrived at the party in question on June 22, at around 7:00 p.m. She was invited by a friend identified as Daryl “Durel” McPherson. Offset arrived at the party “some time later,” the documents state.

“Several times through the evening, Plaintiff noticed Defendant Takeoff staring at her, which made Plaintiff fell extremely uncomfortable,” the complaint reads. “Later that evening, Defendant Takeoff began talks to Plaintiff and offered her marijuana. Plaintiff felt uncomfortable and left the conversation.”

The legal docs go on to state that the woman approached Durel and informed him that Takeoff was making her uncomfortable and that she had “no desire to engage in any sort of intimate relationship” with him.

Takeoff allegedly walked up the stairs while the two were talking and got into an argument with Durel, at which point the woman “continued upstairs alone while Defendant Takeoff continued to argue with Durel.”

The woman went into Durel’s room and laid on the bed. She claims Offset came in after her and began rubbing her buttocks. “Plaintiff clearly and unequivocally refused Defendant Takeoff’s advances and stated to Defendant Takeoff that she did not want to have sex with him.”

The woman alleges that Takeoff ignored her refusals, grabbed and flipped her over face down, pulled down her clothing and proceeded to penetrate her from behind without consent. “After Defendant Takeoff finished raping Plaintiff, he immediately left the room,” the suit claims. “After recovering from the initial shock of what had transpired, Plaintiff promptly walked out of the bedroom and immediately left.”

The suit also notes that the accuser sought medical care at local hospital the same day as the assault. Hospital staff “observed physical evidence of forceful rape and notified the Los Angeles Police of the same.”

The LAPD reportedly confirmed an investigation, but according to  Rolling Stone, the woman’s lawyer “lost confidence” in the investigation and subsequently filed a civil lawsuit.

Takeoff has yet to comment on the allegations.
