Two days after an arrest warrant was issued for Atlanta, Georgia rapper Gucci Mane being charged with the assault of a United States soldier and war veteran, another victim is coming forward with additional allegations. According to Atlanta’s WSBTV Channel 2—the same outlet that initially reported the first assault, a fan was punched in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania after approaching Gucci Mane at a concert.
“I haven’t ever been so humiliated in my life and disrespected,” the victim, who asked only to be called TJ, told WSBTV on Monday (March 25). “He punched me on the left side of my face, right here in the jaw, knocking off my glasses.” The victim claims that the altercation at Philly’s Club Onyx caused him a chipped tooth and swelling of the face. The fan said that Gucci’s entourage prevented him from properly defending himself.
At present, Gucci Mane has yet to turn himself into police. This the latest in a long history of legal troubles for the 1017 Brick Squad leader, who’s been a longtime Warner Bros. Records artist throughout multiple incarcerations for battery and aggravated assault convictions in 2005 and 2011. This second assault report also follows a month where Gucci apparently kicked star protege and album collaborator Waka Flocka Flame out of his Brick Squad organization via Twitter. A label rep later said that Gucci’s account was “hacked.”
Kid CuDi has given up on a bitter custody battle with his baby’s mother over the full custody of their daughter.
According to TMZ, the former couple has been in a quiet legal war over the past year. CuDi explains that he purchased a home in Chicago, Illinois to be closer to his daughter and gave her “generous support,” but the child’s mother denies that claim, stating that he gave only “sporadic and inconsistent amounts” of support. She also accuses him of being an absentee father, as well as having violent tendencies and a “long history of consistent drug and alcohol abuse.”
On August 3rd, Cudders finally agreed to let the mother have full custody of the child. She is allowing him visitation rights and he will also pay child support.
UPDATE: Kid CuDi has addressed a report that he had given up on the custody battle for his daughter. In a statement released by the rapper and his lawyer, CuDi says that he and his baby’s mother reached an “amicable agreement” and that those details will not be revealed.
Dennis Rodman has let go of the liquor and has henceforth brought a new light while shooting All-Star Celebrity Apprentice.
Could Rodman’s public image be getting a major boost? We’ll see, but in the meantime, here’s how Page Six breaks it down:
Dennis Rodman’s turned over a new leaf while shooting “All-Star Celebrity Apprentice,” we hear. “It’s been a wake-up call,” a source said of the newly sober wild man laying off the sauce. “He did a disservice to himself with booze and strip clubs, especially at his appearances.” Rodman’s previously said he was “unhirable” when he tried sobriety years ago. But it seems the Worm’s turned. “He’s a very different person when he’s sober,” said a friend.
“He’s got a lot of integrity. He’s made a real effort. Everyone around him recognizes that.” Rodman was spotted recently at Hell’s Kitchen’s 123 Burger Shot Beer, but abstained when a friend bought $1,000 of shots and brews for the bar. “Dennis was just having fun but wasn’t drinking. He’s in town working and has been sober,” his rep said. Owner John Greco said Rodman “treated everyone like a superstar.” Rodman was seen shooting Donald Trump’s show yesterday on 23rd Street and
Evelyn Lozada has few words for Chad Johnson after his arrest for allegedly head-butting her — first, stop blaming me … and second, get help for your problems, now. Evelyn tells TMZ, “I am deeply disappointed that Chad has failed to take responsibility for his actions and made false accusations against me.”
As TMZ first reported … Chad told police that it was Evelyn who actually head-butted him during their blowout argument dispute Saturday night.
Chad was arrested and booked for domestic battery.
Evelyn also says … “It is my sincere hope that he seeks the help he needs to overcome his troubles. Domestic violence is not okay and hopefully my taking a stand will help encourage other women to break their silence as well.
Evelyn Lozada is speaking out for the first time since her husband Chad Johnson’s arrest Saturday night for allegedly head butting her.
“It is with great sadness and much trepidation that I release this statement addressing the domestic violence incident that happened this past Saturday.
I am deeply disappointed that Chad has failed to take responsibility for his actions and made false accusations against me, it is my sincere hope that he seeks the help he needs to overcome his troubles. Domestic violence is not okay and hopefully my taking a stand will help encourage other women to break their silence as well.
I’m grateful to my family, friends and fans for the outpouring of support during this difficult time,” she tells ET exclusively in a statement.
