There were several interesting posts in February which seemed to revolve around death (Russell Armstrong, Whitney Houston) and arrest records (Marlo Hampton, Chris Brown). Russell’s ex-girlfriend gave up the true tea on Taylor as she was being bombarded on twitter and in the press. We were watching Real Housewives of Atlanta and Real Housewives of Orange County. I was preparing for the Shahs of Sunset by interviewing Asa Soltan Rahmati. We had our first glimpse at her fabulous house on Venice beach. Also two Real Housewives of Miami were sued. Again, there are some formatting issues because these posts were made on Blogger, but if you were not reading Tamaratattles in February, there is good tea here that is still interesting today. Click through for all the drama. Continue reading »
I told y’all back in March that absolutely nothing was going to happen to Chris Brown for jacking that girl’s cell phone. But I’m here today to say I TOLD YOU SO! Here is how it all went down back in February. Bascically, the cops said they wanted a warrant to hold Brown because they feared he was leaving the jurisdiction. The attorney general’s office said they should have just arrested him because now that they asked for a warrant, they have to do a whole investigation. Since Florida takes months to vote when every other state can do it in a few hours, it’s taken them about the same amount of time it takes Jessica Simpson to have a baby to gather witness statements and figure out what to do. And Guess WHAT? Continue reading »
|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.
Well isn’t that delightful. It’s just like that time Miss Universe tried to rhyme on Celebrity Apprentice! He rhymed ‘her’ with ‘bad fur’ because… well moving on. Apparently, Rihanna was offended because she unfollowed Chris (how do people keep up with this) just after the song hit the Internet and then he unfollowed her (GASP!) and now they are mad at each other. This morning Chris posted the picture at left with the tweet, “Assumptions! I didn’t say any names so if u took offense [sic] to it then its something you feel guilty about.” Which basically says that Rihanna is calling herself a whore. Ouch salt on wound!
If Chris Brown and Rihanna can’t make it there is no hope for any of us. What a sad day. I’m sure there will still be the hospital IV tweets and the tweets with pictures of Rihanna mostly nekkid though so there is that. And I know y’all are gonna say I am just hating or I want to be Chris Brown or something but doesn’t he look awful?
And that is how rumors get started. It all seems to have started with Us Magazine saying that Chris Brown’s girlfriend Karrueche Tran had posted some negative nonsense directed at Rihanna on her Facebook after Rihanna went on a bit of a tirade against Karrueche. I follow Karrueche and I know she only has one link on her twitter and that is to her foodie blog. Karrueche tweeted yesterday that she doesn’t have a facebook page. So the quote Us Magazine gave was bogus. Us Magazine is quickly dropping down the tabloid cesspool into MediaFakeOut levels of crapdom. But that didn’t stop New York Daily News and others from running with the bogus story.
Rihanna posted the above picture with the comment “Imma make you my bitch” directed at Karrueche earlier this week. Because of Karrueche’s Vietnamese background, the picture is considered racist by many. Rihanna has continued to post angry lyrics that seem to be meant as insults to Karrueche. Meanwhile, Karreuche seems happy as a clam tweeting about food and playing Draw Something on her phone. While no woman wins win it comes to Chris Brown, Karrueche certainly seems to be the happier of the two women currently stuck in Chris Brown’s web.
What they are really good at in Florida is finger pointing, and that is exactly what is going on now. According to the Miami Herald, a high-ranking member of the State Attorney’s offices said,”Why didn’t the police grow a pair and arrest him when the complaint was drawn? That’s how you do it.” The State’s Attorney’s office seems to be implying that the MBPD was intimidated by Brown’s celebrity status. The MBPD has a different opinion.
On the record, spokesman Ed Griffith said the fact that the MBPD asked for an arrest warrant caused a new investigation to occur at the state level. State bureaucracy is even slower than local police bureaucracy so even if anything happens, it’s going to be a while. Griffith told the Miami Herald, “Police have the power to make an arrest at the scene when they have probable cause, but once they come to us, it brings a whole different approach. We’re re-interviewing every witness. This is not because Chris Brown’s famous. It’s about handling every case equitably.” By “equitably” it looks like they mean tying it up in red tape and hoping the whole thing eventually blows over.Prosecutors have allegedly requested security camera footage of Brown at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach as well as security footage from the Mandarin Oriental downtown Miami where some of his companions that were present for the incident were staying. Despite Internet rumors to the contrary, there is no indication that Chris Brown has been asked to be interviewed by police at this time. Don’t hold you breath for this “investigation” to result in any sort of legal action. It’s Florida y’all. Did the chick even get her phone back?
Rihanna is back to work in London after several days of partying and celebrating her BRIT award. She spent a full day in the recording studio in addition to working on her video. The British paps are saying she left the studio very late on Friday looking exhausted. Unfortunately, she didn’t get much sleep in her hotel as she tweeted the following. ” How in the phuck iz my fire alarm gonna give me my wake-up call??! #Classic” Let’s hope she has been too busy to read the tabloids and see what Chris Brown is up to.
It’s NBA All-Star Weekend in Orlando and the town is going wild. There are star-studded parties all over town making it a tough choice for fans to decide which place to go! Mary J. Blige, Lil Wayne, P. Diddy, Pitbull, Nicki Minaj and Ne-Yo are just some of the big names in town for the festivities. Know who else is there? Chris Brown. Last night Brown performed at the kickoff party (at least he was scheduled to) at H2O Live! and tomorrow night he will be performing at the Roxy. Then on Sunday, he performs at the All-Star finale party after the game at a club called Vain. It’s going to be a very busy weekend in Orlando for Brown.
Unless… Click through the jump to find out what Miami PD has up their sleeve for Chris Brown.
Gossip Extra claims that a law enforcement source indicated that the charge of robbery would be filed against Brown today. Due to the high profile nature of the case the po po are trying to be sure they have all their legal ducks in a row before filing the charge. So if you have tickets to see Chris Brown this weekend in Orlando, he might be unavailable, or better yet, you might get to see him carted off to the jail house! If you go, let me know!
