2 Chainz and Kreayshawn’s creepy music video starts in a poorly-lit house that’s filled with all kinds of taxidermy, tools that hang on the
dungeon basement wall like weapons and caked blood in the drainpipes. Naturally, it’s a music video for a song called “Murder,” by 2 Chinz and Kreayshawn.
The Alex Nazari-directed video starts with 2 Chainz thinking about killing but he settles for dinner instead.
He raps: “Murder, Murder, This Right Here That Murder / Pulled the Car Out The Garage, They Screaming Bloody Murder / Murder, Murder Chalk Line Around Your Daughter / 3 Cell Phones and I Still Don’t Ever Call Her.”
So he’s talking about murder, right?
Watch the video here:
So along with being an average basketball player (let’s be honest here), Shaq is also a mob boss ordering murders.TMZ has obtained a copy of the lawsuit which makes some pretty serious allegations against Shaq.
The lawsuit has been filed by Robert Ross. The suit accuses Shaq of asking Ross to kill a gang member, a record producer, and a woman he impregnated. The suit also claims that Shaq had masterminded a plan to have Ross killed in 2008 by other gang members.
In the suit, Ross alleges, “For many years O’Neal requested and directed [Ross] to perform many personal favors and directed him to perform various tasks including, but not limited to: ordering [Ross] to kill a member of the Downtown Gangster Crips who had disrespected O’Neal in front of his wife Shaunie.”
Shaq’s lawyer, Michael J. Kump, tells TMZ … “The outlandish claims by Robert Ross in his civil complaint are pure fiction. Shaquille O’Neal befriended Mr. Ross in an attempt to help turn his life around. Sadly, Mr. Ross abused that friendship again and again.
Kump adds, “Shaquille’s commitment to law enforcement is well-known and documented. He will not dignify these defamatory allegations with a response.”
We think these allegations perhaps are somewhat true but definitely exaggerated by Ross. And we also trust Larry David. If Shaq was a killer, than Larry wouldn’t have had him as guest star on Curb Your Enthusiasm. We trust Larry’s judgement of character.
Jeremy Wayne Manieri has been charged with the death of Rev. Edward Everitt. After killing the Priest, Manieri alledgely took the man’s car, picked up his ex-wife, stepson and daughter, then drove to Disneyland.
Although they made it to Disneyland, Manieri was found as the car had a vehicle tracking device. They also found the gun to kill Everitt in the car, reports the Daily News.
Hopefully they got to go on some of the rides.
Two men have been arrested for an apparent Joss Stone murder plot, reports CTV.
The two were found near the home of R&B singer Joss Stone in Cullompton, southwest England, on suspicion of conspiracy to rob and murder.
Police officials say the men were aged 30 and 33, and were arrested Tuesday after residents reported a suspicious-looking vehicle.
The men “had in their possession information relating to an individual in the Cullompton area and items which lead us to suspect that they may have intended to commit a criminal offense,” says Detective Inspector Steve Parker.
Stone’s publicist says she was apparently aware of the arrests and is being updated by the police. Police did not confirm that Stone was at home when the incident occurred.
The Sun newspaper claims, although not confirmed by officials, that the men had swords, rope, a body bag, and maps and aerial photos of Stone’s property.
The men are currently in custody. This is a scary story, especially if what the men had is true – a body bag? aerial photos? That’s a whole other level of stalking. Glad she’s okay.
Rihanna’s newest music video, ‘Man Down,’ is sparking some controversy due to its violent nature, reports Billboard.
The video features Rihanna shooting a man dead after he sexually assaults her, which many believe is encouraging young women to turn to violence.
In Rihanna’s defence, the singer tweeted claiming the video stands for female empowerment, after she herself was a victim of a violent attack by then boyfriend Chris Brown in 2009.
“Young girls/women all over the world…we are a lot of things! We’re strong innocent fun flirtatious vulnerable, and sometimes our innocence can cause us to be naive! We always think it could NEVER be us, but in reality, it can happen to ANY of us! So ladies be careful,” she wrote.
The song features such lyrics as ”Momma, I just shot a man dead…I never been so proud.”
Several groups, including The Parents Television Council and Industry Ears, are asking BET and Viacom to stop airing the video.
“If Chris Brown shot a woman in his new video and BET premiered it, the world would stop. Rihanna should not get a pass,” said Paul Porter, co-founder of Industry Ears.
Melissa Henson of the Parents Television Council continued with the criticism, saying “instead of telling victims they should seek help, Rihanna released a music video that gives retaliation in the form of premeditated murder the imprimatur of acceptability.”
On one hand, they do have a point. If Brown released a video like this, the world would be up in arms. Yet she’s allowed to condone murder?
On the other hand, though, the video would make no sense if she didn’t act out the lyrics. The song calls for a “man down,” so artistically, she had to do it. I think people are just taking this too seriously – her video is like a mini movie, an exaggerated story of a woman defending herself. It’s called artistic expression!

CNN reports a task force of federal and local authorities are working on some new tips, however no further information is available at this time. The investigation reportedly includes the Los Angeles Police Department, L.A. County District Attorney’s Office and the FBI.

Bruce Beresford-Redman, producer of the hit (and long-time running) reality show Survivor, has been charged with the murder of his wife, reports PerezHilton.
Beresford-Redman’s wife, Monica, was found dead in their hotel room in Cancun, Mexico while they were on vacation. Mexican officials ordered Beresford-Redman to return to to the country after he left last week to go back to Los Angeles. A warrant is now out for his arrest.
The “Survivor” producer first order of business is gaining custody of his children, reports TMZ. His lawyer Richard Hirsch, says that since his client has not been accused of a crime, he has a legal right to custody of his children.
Beresford-Redman’s parents currently have temporary guardianship of his two children.
The kids of “Survivor” producer Bruce Beresford-Redman finally have their guardianship issues resolved. Bruce’s parents have been issued guardianship over his children until the mystery over his wife’s murder is resolved.
During the proceedings, the judge actually called Bruce in Mexico to find out who he wanted to care for his children, reports TMZ. Bruce asked for his parents to care for the children and the judge agreed.
Although Monica’s sister, Carla Burgos Van Bastelaar, asked for guardianship and was denied, the judge did authorize “reasonable visits.”
The judge also ordered that the children’s passports be surrendered to the court and that they stay in L.A. County. The passport issue is relevant because Carla — the victim’s sister — is from Brazil.
Bruce has been released from Mexican police but is not allowed to leave the country while the investigation into his wife’s murder is active.
E! reports that a Los Angeles court has granted the parents of Bruce Beresford-Redman temporary custody of his young children. Bruce was detained by Mexican police for questioning after his wife Monica was discovered murdered.
“My wife and I are grief-stricken at the loss of our beloved daughter-in-law,” Bruce’s father, David Beresford-Redman, said in a statement earlier today. “We know our son loved Monica and would never have harmed her.”
Although the “Survivor” producer was released from police, he was ordered not to leave Mexico and has been handed over to the U.S. Consolate.
“He can’t leave the country,” said Francisco Alor, attorney general for the state of Quintana Roo. “We still can’t say that he is responsible, but that’s the starting point of the investigation because we have witnesses who say he was the last to see her alive.”
TMZ is reporting that Jon Cryer has asked the FBI to investigate a poential “hit” on his life. Cryer believes that someone is trying to kill him, potentially his ex-wife, and has hired a hitman to carry out the murder. Cryer and his wife are in a brutal custody battle and he believes this is his wife’s strategy to end the battle. TMZ reports that the FBI has worked the case for a week with zero leads.
The man charged in the stabbing that led to the death of actor Robert Knox, who plays Ravenclaw student Marcus Belby in the upcoming film “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince,” has been convicted according to reports by The Associated Press.
The actor’s stabbing took place outside of the Metro Bar in London last May. Knox was killed trying to defend his younger brother. He suffered from five wounds and died later that same day.
At the time of the incident, the 18-year-old had just finished filming the latest installment of “Harry Potter.” The actor had also signed on to “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” to return as the Ravenclaw student.
Knox’s mother, Sally, read a statement in court saying, “As a mother and parent, I can never forgive the person responsible for taking my son Robert’s life, or the devastation that has been caused by these actions”.
