Tekashi 6ix9ine Banned From Performing At Barclays Center Amid Shooting Drama

The rookie will not be allowed to perform at the NYC venue due to a pending police investigation. 

Rookie artist Tekashi 6ix9ine has reportedly been banned from performing at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York due to an ongoing police investigation regarding a recent shooting the rapper and his team were reportedly involved in, TMZ reports.

Earlier in Apr. 2018, Tekashi made headlines for his suspected involvement with a fight that broke out between the rapper's crew and a rival rap crew led by Brooklyn artist Casanova. The altercation resulted in a shooting, but luckily, there were no reported injuries. According to reports, 6ix9ine's manager Tr3way is a person of interest in the shooting.

Tekashi was expected to perform at the upcoming Brooklyn's Soulfrito Fest 2018 on June 8, but with the pending investigation, he will have to back out of the headlining gig. It's unclear whether Barclays will refund tickets in light of the news.

In the past couple of months, the Brooklyn-bred artist has been at the center of controversy. He's often engaged in online battles with veterans such as The Game and YG. He's also ruffled feathers with videos on social media as well as his affiliation with the LA-based Bloods gang. Although he may not be everyone's favorite person at the moment, his combative persona has not hurt his record sales. His first four singles have all charted on the Billboard Hot 100. Furthermore, his tracks "Gummo" and "Kooda" are both certified platinum and gold respectively.

Keep it locked here for more updates regarding the ongoing investigation.

Diddy Settles Sexual Harassment Lawsuit With Former Chef

Diddy has reportedly reached a settlement with his former personal chef in a sexual misconduct lawsuit that was filed in 2017, NBC Los Angeles reports.

The settlement stems from a lawsuit Cindy Rueda filed nearly two years ago. Rueda was reportedly Diddy's personal chef from Apr. 2015 to May 2016. She accused the Bad Boy mogul of sexual harassment and unfair wages. She claimed that she never received additional pay for extra work hours during her time of employment.

Additionally, she alleged that Diddy requested that Rueda serve breakfast to him and a guest in his bedroom. During those incidents, she said she was forced to see "Mr. Combs and his guest indisposed and engaged in sexual activity." Upon entering, she alleged that he would then yell and curse at her.

In Aug. 2017, a Los Angeles Superior Court Judge sent Rueda's case to mediation outside of the court due to the terms of an agreement she previously signed as an employee for Diddy.

The terms or value of the settlement has not been disclosed at this time.

Eminem Continues To Fire Shots At MGK During Australia Concert

It looks like Eminem and Machine Gun Kelly's beef is still going strong. During Eminem's latest concert in Australia, the rapper called MGK a "c*cksucker."

It all started when Em's fans began chanting for him to play his 2018 diss record, "Killshot." Instead of performing the track however, the Detroit native said: "I would but I don't want to give that cocksucker any more fucking light."

"Make some noise for your f**kin' selves and make nothing for MGK," he added before continuing with his set.

Em's latest comments come months after his feud with MGK exploded in 2018. The beef ignited after Em addressed Machine Gun on his Kamikaze album, which prompted the Houston artist to return with "Rap Devil." Fans thought the beef had died down, but was later resurged with Eminem's "Killshot."

Check out Eminem's latest diss in the video below.
