Oh Really Terrence Howard?

Too bad TheYBF.com wasn't around back in '01. Terrence Howard was once arrested on domestic violence charges and folks are saying that's why he should have kept his comment (that he later retracted) about Chris Brown & Rihanna to himself. He said:
"It's just life, man. Chris is a great guy. He'll be alright. And Rihanna knows he loves her, you know?

GRAMMY DRAMA: Chris Brown Investigated In Domestic Violence & Felony Battery Charges!

UPDATE (1:20a EST): Video of Chris Brown turning himself in to LAPD is below (excuse the extra large size for now). He has already set bail. Word has it he was charged with Felony Criminal Threats--which means physical violence accompanied verbal threats. Rihanna was also spotted at the LAPD Wilshire Station making the actual booking charges. She appeared to have serious bruises on her face:

UPDATE (11:13p EST): Chris Brown has officially been booked and his bail is set at $50,000.  Full Booking info when you read the rest... UPDATE (10:21P EST): We're told Chris has been getting prepped by his lawyers for the last few hours. And he has just turned himself in to LAPD. UPDATE (9:11p EST): Ok, here's the low down we got from an extremely credible PR source on the ground at the Grammys. Said source tells TheYBF.com that the "car accident" story is false and is being used to throw everyone off. Rihanna is DEFINITELY the victim of domestic violence and is now pressing charges against her boyfriend Chris Brown as we speak. Early this morning while leaving Clive Davis' party, the two got into a physical altercation in their limo and he punched Rihanna in the face. We're told that's when he/the limo dropped her at Hancock Park in L.A., and she ran and called 911. He left the scene and hasn't been found since. We're told Chris has until midnight tonight to turn himself in to LAPD. Otherwise, he will be arrested as soon as he's spotted by an LAPD officer. We're told Rihanna is definitely in the hospital recovering as we speak. UPDATE (7:21pm EST): It has just been confirmed that neither Rihanna nor Chris Brown will be performing or showing up at all to tonight's Grammys. Grammy staffers are saying Chris may be replaced by Justin Timberlake. Chris has NOT been arrested as of yet. But LAPD Officer April Harding has just said: "If police locate Brown, yes, he's subject to arrest." UPDATE (7:50p EST): The Recording Academy's official statement: "We have just been informed that Rihanna will not be attending tonight's 51st Annual GRAMMY Awards. We're sorry she is unable to join us this evening.' No confirmation from the Academy about Chris Brown, but the Grammy staff confirmed earlier he will not be attending. Being considered to replace him are Justin Timberlake and Al Green. ******************** O snap! Word just hit the Grammy Red Carpet and media sources around it that Chris Brown is being investigated for felony battery. There was an "incident" around 12:30a this morning with a female who was in his limo after they left the Clive Davis Pre-Grammy party. Apparently he and an unnamed female--who everyone's speculating is his girlfriend pop star Rihanna--got into a heated argument in the limo and it escalated. She ended up having very visible injuries to her body and she has just filed charges. While Chris was definitely with Rihanna at the party, the female's name who filed the charges against Chris is being held in secret right now. Apparently that's the policy for felony battery issues. Cops involved in the case just said: "Any victim who's involved in a domestic violence incident is entitled to confidentiality." And since they're calling this a "domestic violence" charge, this leads folks to believe this could very well involve Rihanna. Damn. Ish just got real in Tinsletown. Interestingly, when Rihanna's reps were asked about her well being, their response was: "Rihanna is well. Thank you for concern and support." Very suspicious to say the least. Chris is set to perform tonight, but the head of the Grammys just announced during the pre-show he doesn't think Mr. Breezy will be hitting the stage. Or Rihanna either. It's rumored they've been replaced by Boyz II Men. Drama! STORY DEVELOPING...

WTF Material: NY Knick Sued For Sexual Harrasment--By A Man!+Are Y'all Serious Fashion Week?

Well what do we have here? NY Knick baller Eddie Curry is being sued for sexual harassment--by his former male driver! Dave Kuchinsky says Curry owes him money, sexually harassed him and berated him with racist slurs. What's Curry's response?:
"I'm shocked, really...He approached my friends a while back, trying to get money.

Note To Sheree Whitfield: Girl Stop.

"ATL Housewife" Sheree "I'm just waitin' on my 7 figure payout" Whitfield is somewhere mad salty right now.  According to the AJC, she's appealing her divorce settlement in order to get more money.  But she already, in fact, was awarded approx. $1.1 mill when the divorce from her husband, ex NFLer Bob Whitfield was finalized back in '07.  Apparently that's just not enough for lil Ms. Sheree--who was ordered to leave the $2.2 mill house she was trying to stunt on people with during the Real Housewives show.  Mainly because it wasn't part of her divorce settlement.  The kicker is her lawyer's arguments as to why she deserves more money.  They're pretty much making her look like the helpless career groupie--and apparently she's ok with it:
Her attorneys argue that based on her lack of education and inability to earn income, the court abused its discretion by not awarding alimony and then ordering her and the children out of their $2.6 million home in Sandy Springs. Under state law, the trial court must consider a number of factors in determining the amount of alimony, including the standard of living established during the marriage, the duration of the marriage, the financial resources of each party and the time necessary for a party to acquire sufficient education and training to get a job. Her ex-husband not only received an $8 million signing bonus as part of a $30 million six-year contract, but he is also a sophisticated businessman with investment properties in Costa Rica, California and Atlanta, as well as founder and owner of a “world-class” recording studio, from which he draws $50,000 annually. To enhance his earning power, he has returned to Stanford University. She, on the other hand, has devoted her time to raising the couple’s two young children. The clothing boutique she managed for a brief time, “Bella Azul,” quickly failed under her management and oversight, her attorneys point out. With only a high school degree, she depended on her husband, with whom she had been in a relationship for 14 years. Despite her lack of education, marketable job skills and employment prospects, the court wrongly denied her alimony, even though her husband’s monthly income is almost 12 times her. The failure to award alimony is also contrary to the best interests of the children, her attorneys contend. Without alimony, she cannot afford to buy another home in the neighborhood where they have grown up, have friends and go to school.

Talking a pile of sh*t and not backing a lick of it up. Playing the helpless groupie bullsh*t role in court? WTF?  And she has an "inability to earn income"?  I know paraplegics who earn a damn income.  GTFOH Sheree.  This type of ish is a pet peeve of mine and I could give a damn who has a problem with my rant. Posers make me itch and this chick is going for Queen Bee status of Camp Poser.  Y'all already know how I feel about the Housewives and them trying to act like they're richer than rich when hardly any of them have anywhere near the mula that they claim.  And have the nerve to try to be condescending to others--who probably have more money than them.   Your bad you didn't pull a Shaunie O'Neal and take your "allowance" money and flip it for your damn self Sheree.  All these damn bailouts must stop in '09.  We're still being selfish even when kids are involved?  Get a damn job!  Womp womp! More on this foolishness when you read the rest...
