Lil Fizz Formerly of B2K Sued for Running Illegal L.A. Pot Shop

20 Oct

One of the guys from the R&B group B2K is being sued by the State of California for more than ONE MILLION DOLLARS for allegedly operating an illegal marijuana dispensary in L.A. … TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement officials believe 25-year-old Dreux Pierre Frederic — aka Lil’ Fizz — is one of the owners of the Little Amsterdam weed shop in West Hollywood, CA., which opened for business on July, 1, 2010.

Problem is … dude opened the shop in an area where weed shops are strictly prohibited … this according to the lawsuit, filed Wednesday in L.A. County Superior Court.

In the docs, prosecutors want Lil’ Fizz to shut down his operation ASAP … PLUS, they want him to pay a $2,500 fine for every day the shop has been open … which currently totals 477 days … so, $1,192,500.

And there’s more … prosecutors also want Fizz to pay for law enforcement costs and attorney’s fees related to the case … which could add up to another $750,000.

Whoa!! That probably comes up to more than he ever made with B2K. Sorry Lil Fizz you know better than that. How you going to open up an illegal weed show in a state where weed is legal? Just sayin!


Lindsay Lohan Handcuffed in Court, Taken Into Custody

19 Oct

Lohan was handcuffed in a Los Angeles court and taken away by sheriff’s deputies following a half-hour hearing today. A sheriff’s deputy confirmed the $100,000 bail that was set will be processed at the courthouse and that the actress will be released. 

Lohan is expected back in court for a Nov. 2 hearing to formally determine whether she violated probation. 

Judge Stephanie Sautner said that Lohan “blew off” nine scheduled appointments at the Downtown Women’s Center, where the actress had been ordered to complete 360 hours for her necklace theft case. Because of the no-shows, Lohan had been kicked out of the program. 

Lohan’s attorney, Shawn Holley argued it was premature to find Lohan in violation, saying the missed appointments were due to work commitments abroad and that Lohan received a “glowing” report from her psychiatrist. “The report says Ms. Lohan has reached a turning point in her accountability and maturity,” Holley argued in court. 

The judge retorted: “Failing to show up nine times [to the shelter] is reaching a turning point in her maturity?” 

You already know where I stand on this case. Lock her over privileged ass up so she can wake you.

Halle Berry ‘Winning’ In Child Custody Battle Against EX

18 Oct

Ahhhh, the beautiful couple in happier days. Days before law suites and court battles. I bet Gabriel Aubry is scratching his head saying what the hell was I thinking? After constantly loosing every time they go to court (I think you need a new lawyer bro) it is yet another win for Halle Berry in her bitter custody battle against her ex. A judge just shot down Gabriel Aubry‘s request to ditch his nanny-supervisor while he’s with their daughter.

Gabriel has been trying to amend his visitation rights which require a nanny to be present while he’s with Nahla — claiming he wanted more alone time with his daughter. Halle opposed the change.

The judge issued an order yesterday, siding with Halle, upholding the original agreement requiring supervised visitation on Gabriel’s part.

Sources tell TMZ, Gabriel is pissed and he feels the nanny is ruining his relationship with his daughter.

I feel sorry for Gab. It’s sad to see a man who clearly loves his daughter and wants to spend time with her being denied. Cheer up Gab it’ll get better, I hope..but you know Halle’s crazy so.

Soulja Boy Arrested For Marijuana Possession

18 Oct

Every few weeks we get what I like to call a, “Rappers Are Stupid” story. Well in fashion they never disappoint. This weeks stupid rapper is…..Soulja Boy! Now we’re going to watch Yoooouuu go to jail. 

According to TMZ:

Soulja Boy was arrested early this morning for weed possession … and law enforcement sources tell TMZ cops allegedly found a TON of weed and cash during the arrest. 

The 21-year-old rapper — real name DeAndre Cortez Way — was popped early this morning by Temple Police Department officers in Temple, GA at 3:15 AM.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … Soulja was in a car with 4 other men, which was originally pulled over for a traffic violation.

We’re told … during the stop, cops found a “substantial amount” of marijuana and cashinside the vehicle.” Soulja and the 4 other men were all arrested. Soulja is still being held in Carrol County Jail.

Law enforcement sources tell us officers also found guns inside the car — though it’s unclear if any of the men had the proper licenses to be in possession of the firearms.

We’re told an investigation is underway.

One source with knowledge of the situation tells us there was roughly $70,000 in cashand drugs in the car. 

‘Hannah Montana’ Star Mitchell Musso Arrested for DUI

18 Oct

Mitchel Musso, who played one of Miley Cyrus’s sidekicks on Hannah Montana, was arrested early Sunday morning on suspicion of DUI, according to police. 

With a blood-alcohol level “well over” the legal limit of .08, Burbank, Calif., Sgt. Sean Kelly told the Burbank Leader that Musso “drove through an intersection and failed to do what an officer instructed him to do.” 

Because Musso, 20, is not of legal drinking age (which is 21), Kelly said any alcohol in his body would be considered illegal. 

Musso, who was pulled over in his black 2007 Mercedes Benz at the time of his arrest, posted $5,000 bail and was released from jail.

Lindsay Lohan May Be Sent Back To Jail! Good Riddance!

14 Oct

Troubled “Mean Girls” star Lindsay Lohan may be sent back to jail after she was booted off a community service program and missed court-ordered appointments with her psychologist.

So far lindsay’s violated two of Judge Stephanie Sautner’s orders by not seeing a psychologist every week and not completing 360 hours of community service at the Downtown Women’s Center in Los Angeles, TMZ reported.

Lohan was kicked out of the Downtown Women’s Center because she did not show up regularly and often would stay only for a short period.

The 25 year old was sentenced to the work as part of her probation for pleading no contest to taking a $2,500 necklace from a Los Angeles boutique in January.

I say send her ass back to jail and let her serve her whole time. These pampered celebs just don’t get it. If I did what Lindsay did I’d be under the jail for a few years. Sometimes you just get sick of the celebrity BS. 

What do you think? Should Lindsay go back to jail?

Chris Tucker To Lose $6 Million Home

13 Oct

Rush Hour star Chris Tucker’s $6 million Florida mansion is in foreclosure, with more than $4.4 million owed to the bank, reports the Orlando Sentinel, citing papers filed in Circuit Court in Lake County. 

Tucker, 39, bought the 10,000-sq.-ft. waterfront home on Lake Apopka, near Orlando, in 2007. The newspaper says the residence contains five bedrooms, three fireplaces, a personal spa, an outdoor kitchen overlooking a pool, and a basement outfitted to resemble a pirate ship, including the sail. 

Court documents reportedly show an $11.5 million IRS lien on the home in 2011 in order to collect federal income taxes from Tucker, whose monthly mortgage payment, the documents also show, was $25,812.50. 

There has been no comment from Tucker, but the Times Union of Albany, N.Y., reports that his comedy show scheduled in the city for this Sunday – and was a rescheduling of a postponed Sept. 3 performance – has been canceled because of “unforeseen circumstances.”

Really Chris? Come on son…I’m going to need for you to pay your taxes or get a really good tax accountant that will.
