Two Men Arrested in Tokyo Were Not Part of the Nicki Minaj Tour

Nicki Minaj has finally made a statement regarding the apparent murder of one of her concert goers in Tokyo last week.  The two men arrested in connection with the case were speculated by many including this blog to have been in Japan working on the Nicki Minaj tour.  Today Nicki Minaj finally addressed the rumors on twitter.


Saddened to learn one of my precious fans; found tragically murdered in Japan. My love & prayers are with the family of Nicola Furlong.
that person on your sight is NOT my dancer. We do NOT know the men in custody. Too much misleading information.

There were also reports that the two men arrested were actually on tour with Japanese-American singer, Ai. There are not a lot of updates coming out of Japan or Ireland on this story. Funeral arrangements are underway for Nicola. Her female companion on the evening she was killed is said to have very little memory of the events because the two young women were drinking heavily. Nicola’s friend has returned to Ireland to attend Nicola’s funeral. Meanwhile, details of the autopsy have not been officially released.

Rumors that Bobbi Kristina Quit For Better or Worse Are False.

Tyler Perry took to his Facebook yesterday to dispel rumors that were circulating that Bobbi Kristina had quit For Better or Worse.

I woke up this morning to my publicist calling me saying that there were reports that Bobbi Kristina walked off the set of “For Better Or Worse”. NOT TRUE AT ALL PEOPLE!!! There is no way that she could have walked off the set because we have finshed (sic) taping the season.

Looks like the show is already done for the season. It will be interesting to see her performance.

Nene Leakes on Fashion Police

Interesting and conflicting Atlanta fashion news today. Atlanta has been named in a Huffington Post survey as number 7 in a list of worst dressed cities, and they specifically mention the RHOA as an example of the problem.

If the flashy reality-TV stars of The Real Housewives of Atlanta are at all indicative of how the rest of Atlanta dresses, it’s no wonder our readers ranked it as America’s No. 7 least-stylish city. Hotlanta has one of the highest per capita incomes of any southern city, but as the TV show illustrates and the saying goes: money can’t buy taste.See More of America’s Worst-Dressed People

Meanwhile out in La-La Land, Nene Leakes just finished filming her appearance on this week’s episode of Fashion Police. The show will air on E! Friday at 10 pm. Let’s hope she didn’t do the tacky one shoulder housewife top. Joan will rip her to shreds. Could be a fun show to watch. Also Nene is doing her “looking at houses” routine on twitter. Girl, please. Nobody is going to give you a mortgage. We all know that.

Video of James Blackston, American Dancer Arrested in Japan Dancing on Train in Japan

This Youtube is going around social media of “King Tight” dancing on a public train in Japan. Check out the poor passengers’ reactions. The person who posted the video says this was days before the attack and murder of Nicola Furlong.  However, the person posting the video got a lot of information wrong on their description of the video so there is no way to know when this video was made. This wasn’t funny then, but it’s really not funny now.

Two Men Likely Part of Nicki Minaj Tour Arrested In Japan for Rape

James “King Tight” Blackston

Nicola Furlong, a 21 year old Irish foreign exchange student, was murdered in an upscale hotel room in Tokyo in the early hours of Thursday morning.  Nicola along with another female friend attended the Nicki Minaj concert Wednesday night.  Details are difficult to confirm but this is how the story is shaping up for me. Nicola and her friend met James “King Tight” Blackston, a backup dancer, and Larry Perry, a 19 year old musician at the concert. It is looking likely, but as yet unconfirmed, that the two were working on the Nicki Minaj tour. The girls were wasted. They had missed the last train out and decided to go to the hotel rooms of James and Larry.  In the car on the way to the hotel, the girl that lived, claims she was sexually assaulted. Both men are arrested on the sexual assault charge. UPDATE: There are conflicting reports on who the 19 year old is. Because in Japan you are a minor at 19 the police are not releasing the name. Most credible sources in the UK are reporting that it “Larry Perry”. Other sources have mentioned a young drummer who is on a tour unrelated to Nick Minaj. However that person is still tweeting and seems highly unlikely to be the correct 19 year old.

At the hotel the foursome paired off into two different rooms. The girl who went to James’ room lived. The girl who went to Larry’s room appears to have been strangled to death around 3 a.m. Other guests reported a loud disturbance. When security checked on the room they found Nicola strangled and Larry standing next to her. She was later pronounced dead at a hospital. Update: Reports are leaking that the deceased woman was sexually assaulted AFTER she was strangled.
Some international reports indicate that the Japanese often arrest on a lessor charge while building a case on the higher charge. It appears that one or both may be charged in the death soon. James has done previous backup dancing for Chris Brown and J-Lo in the past. Not much information on “Larry Perry” yet and the Japanese are not even officially identifying him because he is 19. Blackston is 23. Both are in deep shit.

UPDATE: The two men arrested were not affliated with the Nicki Minaj tour but were working with Japanese Hip Hop artist Ai.  Ai has not issued a statement with regard to the arrests.
