Cee Lo Green is maintaining his innocence after a Los Angeles woman filed a police report alleging that “The Voice” mentor and rapper assaulted her. TMZ reports that the unnamed woman filed a report that puts Green (real name: Thomas DeCarlo Callaway) at the center of a sexual battery investigation. Though details are scarce, TMZ says police have visited an L.A. restaurant said to be connected to the case, and have interviewed several employees and the manager.
Green, 38, told TMZ he has not been to the restaurant in three months. “Nothing ever happened there or anywhere else,” said the “F— You” singer, who mentors contestants on NBC’s hit show alongside Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine. A source close to Green told TMZ: “I have never seen Cee Lo act in a physical way toward anybody.” No charges have been filed in the case, and it has not yet been referred to prosecutors.
Fayette County deputies arrested megachurch pastor Creflo Dollar Jr. early Friday morning for allegedly assaulting his 15-year-old daughter. According to the police incident report, the preacher’s 19-year-old daughter, Alexandria, said Dollar “put both hands around her sister’s neck and choked her for about five seconds.” Alexandria Dollar told deputies she then saw her father grab her little sister by the shoulders and slap her in the face. She says the sister tried to break free but was thrown to the ground, at which point Alexandria ran to get her mother, Taffi, whose arrival in the kitchen ended the fight, the incident report states.
The 15-year-old, who also alleges her father beat her with his shoe while pinning her to the floor, sustained “superficial injuries” to her neck, said sheriff’s office spokesman Brent Rowan. The 50-year-old minister was charged with simple battery, family violence and cruelty to children. Deputies were summoned to Dollar’s Sandy Creek Road home around 1 a.m. after receiving a 911 call. They discovered “enough probable cause to make an arrest,” Rowan said.
According to the incident report, the 15-year-old was upset because her father wouldn’t let her attend a party on Saturday. Dollar, longtime pastor of World Changers Church International in College Park, said he was merely trying to restrain his daughter, who he claims was acting disrespectful. While holding her, she began to hit back so he wrestled her to the floor, the report states. Dollar told deputies he then spanked his daughter’s rear and sent her to her room. (more…)
Pattie LaBelle Sued Over Vicious Airport Beating of West Point Cadet
‘Lady Marmalade’ singer and R&B queen Pattie LaBelle has been accused of ordering the beating of a West Point cadet at Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, Texas on March 11. According to the Houston Chronicle, Richard King, 23, was talking to his brother on his cell phone while approaching the airport’s passenger pickup area where Labelle’s limousine happened to be parked.
In security-camera footage of the incident, King is suddenly struck and thrown against a concrete pillar by LaBelle’s body guards and an unidentified woman. King subsequently tries to get up and leave the area but he falls continuously.
“Apparently, defendant LaBelle believed King was standing too close to her (no doubt expensive) luggage, even though he was oblivious to her presence and the danger he was in,” King’s attorney John Raley said in the lawsuit filing. “LaBelle lowered the window of her limousine and gave a command to her bodyguards. They sprang into action.”
