Sean Kingston Claims He Was Tricked By Migos In Alleged Las Vegas Incident

The artist says he wasn't aware Offset, Takeoff and Quavo had an issue with him. 

After rumors and constant social media posts, Sean Kingston has painted another story about his run-in with Atlanta rap group Migos.

The artist sat down with CBS 8 Las Vegas Thursday (Feb. 23) to clear up claims about the altercation that took place Tuesday night (Feb 21). Initial reports painted a picture that Kingston was jumped by the rap group near the Las Vegas Strip. Kingston's friend Mioses "Bowe Jack" Johnson was arrested and charged with assault with a deadly weapon after he reportedly fired a shot in the air. Kingston might've said there was no altercation in a previous Instagram post, but his interview proved otherwise as he explains that he was jumped, but not jumped.

"You see my face, there was no beat down, it was none of that," Kingston said. "It was a jump, but it wasn't a JUMP. You get what I'm saying, We went out there thinking we were going to have a conversation. They face timed me, 'yo come outside let's talk. Man, I miss you let's chalk it up.' You know what I'm saying? And as soon as I went outside it was no talking. They just started jumping on me throwing punches. I didn't have a chance to put up my set up or do nothing."

Not only do we have no clue what he's saying, we're also not sure if he knows what he's saying. The interview caught the eyes of Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club, where the artist was awarded "Donkey of the Day."

During his interview, Kingston hints that his comments defending  Soulja Boy during his beef with Quavo may have sparked the incident.

The Migos members are not suspects although the Las Vegas law enforcement are looking to question them. One of Kingston's friends, Moises Johnson, is facing felony charges after firing a shot in the air during the assault. Johnson claims he wasn't trying to harm anyone but was merely trying to stop the attack. "To everybody in Las Vegas, we love Las Vegas," Kingston said.  "Sean Kingston is about unity and feel good music and spreading the love."

Migos haven't been named suspects in the incident, but Johnson will have to return to court for his felony charges.

Keri Hilson Says New Music Is Coming Summer 2019

Keri Hilson is making a comeback. After a lengthy hiatus, the singer announced that she will be releasing new music this summer 2019.

Hilson shared the exciting news with her fans on Instagram on Sunday (Mar. 24). "Today marks 10 years since the release of my first studio album, 'In A Perfect World,'" she wrote in the caption of a photo herself. "I didn’t mean to be gone so long, I only needed my real world to be perfect...It is now. Thank you for your patience. The wait is over. I’m ready. Summer 2019."

It's definitely been a long time coming for Keri. In Feb. 2019, the singer explained her absence from the music scene, attributing it to mental health concerns. "I've lost some pivotal characters in the process of stepping away for my wellbeing," she said at the time. "Though I was prepared for the possibility that some wouldn't understand or lose faith in me as an artist while I dealt with the trials of my life, it still hurts. But I accept the fact that some relationships have just run their course."

It's unclear whether Hilson will be coming out with a single or a full LP at this time. Stay tuned for more announcements in the months to come.

Dr. Dre Promptly Deletes IG Post Bragging About Daughter's USC Admission

Dr. Dre thought he was sharing a "Proud Dad" moment on Instagram when he posted about his daughter getting accepted into the University of Southern California, but instead, he wound up the center of social media attack.

The tech mogul's deleted post reportedly bragged about his daughter Truly Young being admitted to the university "on her own," which was a subtle joke referencing the alleged college admissions bribery scandal. "My daughter got accepted into USC all on her own," he joked. "No jail time!!!"

The college admissions bribery scandal accused a number of parents of paying more than $25 million to a fake college admissions counselor to bribe college officials and inflate test scores.

While Dr. Dre was not one of the parents named in the court case, fans reminded him that he donated a whopping $70 million to USC. The donation was made in partnership with producer Jimmy Iovine in 2013 to create the USC Jimmy Iovine and Andre Young Academy for Arts, Technology, and the Business of Innovation.

Dr. may have deleted the post, but the damage was already done. Check out a screenshot of his post below.

Dubai Denies R. Kelly Was Ever Scheduled To Perform For Royal Family

R. Kelly tried to escape to a foreign country, and he would've gotten away with it if it weren't for Dubai's government.

United Arab Emirates officials are reportedly denying that the disgraced singer was scheduled to perform and meet the royal family in Dubai after Kelly asked a judge for permission to travel out of the country while he's facing sexual abuse charges, the Associated Press reports.

"Authorities in Dubai have not received any request for a performance by singer R. Kelly nor are there any venues that have been booked," the statement issued from the Dubai Media Office on Sunday (Mar. 24), reads. It was also noted that Kelly "has not been invited by the Dubai royal family for a performance."

R. Kelly's lawyer, Steven A. Greenberg, is telling a different story, however. "Mr. Kelly had a signed contract with a legitimate promoter, and any information that was included in the motion to travel was from that contract," Greenberg explained in an email to AP. "We did not say he was invited by The royal family, but the contract did provide that he would make himself available to meet with them."

As you may know, R. Kelly was charged with 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse on Feb. 22. He's facing up to 70 years in prison. In court documents filed last week, Greenberg argued that the singer needed to travel abroad in order to raise money to support his three kids. "He has struggled of late to pay his child support and other child-related expenses," Greenberg stated, referencing Kelly's back child support case.

The court docs did not specify where Kelly would be performing. There were also no postings regarding Kelly's expected visit. A judge has not ruled on the request to travel, but it's likely that the government's statement will influence the final decision. So, Kelly will just have to find another way to make his money.
