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.

“Beastie Boys” rapper MCA — real name Adam Yauch — has died. In 2009, MCA announced he was being treated for a cancerous parotid gland and a lymph node. He has since undergone surgery and radiation therapy.
So far, it’s not clear if the death is related to the rapper’s battle with cancer. Russell Simmons’ website GlobalGrind.com first reported the death. We have spoken to people independently connected to the rapper who also say he is dead. Yauch co-founded Beastie Boys in 1979 with Mike D, Mix Master Mike, and Ad Roc. The group has won multiple Grammys.
Yauch is survived by his wife and daughter. He was 47.
In addition to his 11 albums, he penned the themes for the FOX comedies “In Living Color” and “MADtv.”
He was just 44 years old.

A rapper who boasted on Twitter about beating a murder rap is a violent drug kingpin who flooded Brooklyn’s Gowanus Houses with crack and heroin, the feds said Wednesday. Ronald (Ra Diggs) Herron, charged with eight others in a federal indictment, provided prosecutors with a wealth of incriminating evidence in his YouTube videos and in his Twitter musings.
He tweeted that he has “5000 n—– with them lorcins (handguns) ready to turn the pigs kids into orphins,” federal court papers reveal. The videos depict the ex-con wearing body armor and brazenly firing guns at a target range. In them, he boasts he ordered a shooting from his hospital bed and “beat a body” – a reference to his 2002 murder after two witnesses refused to testify against him after they were threatened.
Herron warned agains people “snitching” and referenced a murder in the Gowanus Houses housing project, where the victim reportedly helped authorities, Assistant U.S. Attorneys Shreve Ariail and Carter Burwell said. Herron, 28, was arrested by NYPD detectives early Tuesday outside Club Amnesia in Chelsea. (more…)
TMZ cameras recently caught up with him to ask about his mansion in Houston that was recently foreclosed on.
“Let me give you the short business answer. I bought a house in Houston and I decided to let that house go because the house ended up being worth nothing when the market went down,” he said. “I paid like close to $2 million for that house and I decided to let it go, give it back to the bank. It wasn’t a situation where they came and took it from me. I felt like I didn’t want to pay that much for a house that I’m never at.”
Chamillionaire said he’s making money touring so money is definitely not the issue. It was strictly a business decision.He is not Chsthousaindnaire.
