Lauryn Hill BLOWS OFF Her Landlord + "After Earth" DISAPPOINTS At The Box Office + Cops CALLED To Shemar Moore's HOUSE
Singer Lauryn Hill has chosen to vacate her NJ mansion. Get the deets on her pre-prison move inside and see how Will and Jaden Smith's "After Earth" performed at the box office. Also, find out why the cops showed up at Shemar Moore's house.
After falling behind on her rent, troubled rapper Lauryn Hill reportedly informed her New Jersey landlords that she would vacate her rented-mansion on May 31 and settle up with them for $7,000 in back rent.
But having to find new digs for herself and her kids is just one of the issues currently facing Lauryn. We told you previously that she's due to start her three month prison stint for tax evasion on July 8 and she's been attacked for the lyrics of her "comeback" single "Neurotic Society."
Outside of a few rants on her Tumblr page, Lauryn has been pretty silent about her future and how she's dealing with the upcoming prison sentence. We just hope she can hold it together.
At the movies.....
After a whirlwind promo schedule, which even included a few high profiles stunts in Europe (DJ Jazzy Jeff and Alfonso Ribeiro were roped in), Will Smith's action film, After Earth, didn't live up to the high expectations of SONY pictures this weekend. Falling victim to bad "word of mouth" and even more critical reviews, the film took in $27 million opening weekend, landing in third place at the box office.
Though that figure may seem pretty high, it's definitely NOT "Will Smith" status. Made with a $130 Million budget, SONY tried to sugar coat the weekend gross saying, "While we were expecting more domestically, we believe the film will perform strongly when we open overseas over the next few weeks."
Good luck with that. Meanwhile, Tyrese and Ludacris are still holding steady at number one with Fast & Furious 6.
Here's how the rest of the weekend turned out:
And in LAPD news......
We all know "Criminal Minds" star Shemar Moore's party motto "What Happens At Shemar Moore's House NEVER HAPPENED", but Saturday morning, one of Shemar's guests told the LAPD "just what had happened." According to TMZ, one of Shemar's guests called the cops, claiming the actor assaulted her. And by the time cops arrived, both Shemar and the woman had accused one another of pushing and shoving. And yep, alcohol was involved. So what happened?
According to a police report, the guest claimed she was pushed into the pool and prevented from entering the house to dry off. Although Shemar did arrive with towels (at the backdoor *snickers*), the "irate" guest was asked to leave the party and that led to the pushing and shoving. The cops arrived at 3:45am to file their report, but no arrests were made because neither of them had injuries.
SMH....it's sad that they had to lay hands on each other but we wouldn't want someone "fresh out the pool" walking through our posh L.A. house either. Womp.
