Bob Marley’s former The Wailers bandmate Bunny Wailer has reportedly taken aim at rapper Snoop Dogg for posing as a member of the Rastafari movement after immersing himself in Jamaican culture last year.
The hip-hop superstar previously revealed he had been anointed Snoop Lion by a Rastafarian priest after experiencing a spiritual awakening while recording his first reggae project, “Reincarnated.” He adopted the traditional dress and dreadlocked hair during his time in Jamaica and filmed his transformation for a documentary, also titled “Reincarnated.”
But Wailer is not convinced by Snoop’s new lifestyle and he has accused the rapper of the “outright fraudulent use of (the) Rastafari community’s personalities and symbolism,” according to TMZ.
Members of the Rastafari Millennium Council have also launched a verbal attack on Snoop, demanding he refrain from using the moniker Snoop Lion and apologize for his behavior or face legal action, according to TMZ. They have also fired off a seven-page letter to the marijuana-loving star, insisting that “smoking weed and loving Bob Marley and reggae music is not what defines the Rastafari Indigenous Culture.”
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.
“Dog Whisperer” host Cesar Millan might need some consolation from man’s best friend after his divorce was finalized. TMZ is reporting that the self-taught expert dog trainer must pay his ex-wife, Ilusión, a one-time amount of $400,000, a monthly spousal payment of $23,000, and another $10,000 for monthly child support.
That may seem like a huge sum for a basic cable reality TV personality, but Millan can afford it.
The recently filed divorce documents, which were obtained by TMZ, show that Millan makes $170,000 a month — which is over $2 million a year. Though he is best known for hosting the National Geographic Channel’s “Dog Whisperer” for eight seasons — it has millions of viewers and is broadcast to over 80 countries — the 42-year-old has also authored several best-selling books and runs a Dog Psychology Center. The latter, according to the New York Times, is a 43-acre mecca he calls “Disneyland for dogs.” (more…)
There are times when divorce forces people to do strange things. Burn sheets. Throw out clothes. Toss rings into the ocean. But when you get $100 million in your divorce, you can trump just about anything and that’s what happened with Tiger Woods’ ex-wife when she bought a $12 million home and bulldozed the whole thing.
Yes, according to TMZ, Elin Nordegren bought a $12 million home in North Palm Beach, Fla., but didn’t like it, and has plowed the whole thing.
The house, which had six bedrooms and eight bathrooms, is now just rubble, with no word yet on what is going to replace the beautiful building you see above, but I guess when you have nine figures in the bank, it doesn’t really matter what you want.
Game stopped by the TMZ offices on Friday (Jan. 29) to deny rumors that he’s the father of Tila Tequila’s unborn baby. In fact, he claims he’s never even met the reality star. “I ain’t never had a conversation with her,” he told TMZ founder Harvey Levin. “I wouldn’t use 50 [Cent]‘s stick.” But he does reveal that his son’s mother is expecting a child. Tila released a statement addressing the situation.
Thas a punk bitch right there. COWARD! GAME=DEADBEAT DAD. Just wait. 9 months from now I’m gonna take the paternity test to PROVE IT! Game just f*cked himself.
“Game, I don’t need to bicker and fight with you love, when I know a lot of shady things about you, that I can sell you out on but I’m not,” Tequila said in a statement to RadarOnline.com. “You know damn straight everything you said in that video [interview in which he denies he is the father] is a lie! Why would you do that??? But I don’t even care.” from Radar Online
