The week began on a bad note for DaniLeigh, who was arrested and charged with three felonies including driving under the influence in Miami Beach.
According to reports, the singer was arrested in the early morning hours on Tuesday (May 30th) by the Miami Beach Police Department. The report states that DaniLeigh, also known as Danielle Leigh Curiel, was arrested for “driving under the influence, leaving the scene of a crash with serious bodily injury, and DUI damage to property.” The “Tasty” singer was spotted weaving in and out of traffic at high speeds in a Mercedes-Benz G550 on Washington Avenue. She reportedly hit a person driving a moped by 11th Street and observers claim that she dragged the victim for an entire city block while trying to flee the scene. Local reports say the crash occurred outside of MBPD headquarters, and that “multiple people attempted to get the driver’s attention and advised her that she was dragging the moped.”

DaniLeigh was pulled over by an officer five blocks away after initially refusing to stop. The 28-year-old claimed that she was just returning home from a Memorial Day Weekend party and that she hadn’t had anything to drink and that she didn’t hit anyone. The officers noted that her SUV smelled of alcohol and had her take a field sobriety test which she “failed to perform to the standard,”  according to their report. After she was arrested, they conducted two breathalyzer tests, where it was noted she blew twice the legal breath alcohol limit at 0.145 % and 0.148%. The officers’ report noted that they found an empty bottle of Don Julio 1942 tequila in the vehicle.

The victim who was driving the moped was taken to a nearby hospital, where they were diagnosed with a lacerated kidney and a spinal fracture due to the crash. Police stated that the moped “sustained major damage.” According to the county records, DaniLeigh was no longer in custody as of Tuesday afternoon. When contacted by the press, representatives for the singer offered no comment.

YG & Saweetie Spotted Getting Cozy During Mexico Baecation, Twitter Has Thoughts

Megan Thee Stallion moves on from Pardi, and now YG is tap, tap, tapping Saweetie.

The internet is buzzing after photos of YG and Saweetie in a pool getting cozy in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, hit Twitter timelines confirming rumors of them messing around with each other.

The photos in question show a fresh-faced Saweetie rocking her vacation braids and pink bikini along with the Bompton rapper, who is hilariously wearing a fitted baseball hat in the pool.

The two Hip-Hop stars are hugging each other in photos, with YG giving her a smooch on the cheek in another flick.

Rumors of Saweetie and YG dating began to swirl after the two were seen “getting cozy” at a California restaurant while attending Coachella.

Adding more fuel to the fire, Saweetie was one of the many guests at YG’s all-red 33rd birthday soiree in West Hollywood back in March, along with other names like A$AP Ferg, Ty Dolla $ign, Offset, DJ Mustard, and Travis Scott.

The love connection could have happened in the studio after the two rappers came together on Mozzy’s 2022 track “In My Face,” featuring 2 Chainz.

Saweetie & YG’s High-Profile Love Life

Both Saweetie and YG are no strangers to high-profile romances. YG has dated Keke Palmer, singer Kehlani, whom he got caught cheating on, and two children with his ex-girlfriend Catelyn Sparks.

Saweetie famously dated Quavo between 2018 and 2021. Their romance died as allegations of Quavo creeping on the “Best Friend” crafter.

“I’m single,” she said in a 2021 tweet. “I’ve endured too much betrayal and hurt behind the scenes for a false narrative to be circulating that degrades my character. Presents don’t band-aid scars, and the love isn’t real when the intimacy is given to other women.”

“I emotionally checked out a long time ago and have walked away with a deep sense of peace and freedom. Excited for this new chapter of elevation,” she added.

Not long after, that infamous video of the elevator footage of the two artists involved in a physical altercation surfaced, but both Saweetie and Quavo said the incident happened and the past, and they were able to move past it.

Twitter Reacts To The News

Yup, Twitter is reacting to the surprising couple and is very meh at the idea of them dealing with each other. One Twitter user was unhappy to know “YG church shoe wearin’ ass” bagged Saweetie.

YG & Saweetie is something I didn’t expect……but I’m not mad at it,” another Twitter user wrote. 

Add YG and Saweetie to the list of new couples we will be rooting for. You can see more reactions to the news in the gallery below.

Diddy Sues Diageo Over DeLeón Tequila Brand, Claims Racial Discrimination 

The After Hosted By Diddy & Doja Cat

A bitter taste over failed promises over a tequila brand has led Diddy to file a lawsuit against his partner in the brand, Diageo.
According to reports, the entertainment mogul filed a lawsuit Wednesday (May 31) against the multinational spirits company, citing their neglect of the DeLeón tequila brand he co-owns with them. The lawsuit was filed by Combs Wines and Spirits in the New York State Supreme Court against Diageo’s North American entity, with the expressed aim of compelling Diageo to comply with the joint-venture agreement both signed in 2013 and other written agreements crafted to resolve complaints.

Diddy, also known as Sean Combs, has also alleged that Diageo engaged in a pattern of racial discrimination when it came to the DeLeón brand, describing it as a “Black brand” and “urban.” He also accused Diageo of neglecting his brand while investing heavily into two other tequila brands including Casamigos, the brand backed by actor George Clooney, which Diageo purchased for $1 billion in 2017. Don Julio is the other brand.

Other examples Combs presented in the documents of the lawsuit include confusion on the pricing of DeLeón bottles and his dismay at the decision by Diageo to not provide available agave to DeLeón during a shortage of the key tequila ingredient in 2020 and 2021. Another example cited was a bottle redesign that “was prone to bubbling, which made the product look cheap,” according to the filing.

According to retail data from last year, DeLeón’s availability on shelves in retail outlets is outpaced by a vast margin. It was estimated to have been found in 3.3% of retail outlets nationwide, while Casamigos and Don Julio were available at 34.4% and 36% of retail outlets nationwide, respectively.

“This is a business dispute, and we are saddened that Mr. Combs has chosen to recast this matter as anything other than that,” a spokeswoman for Diageo said to initial press inquiries. “Our steadfast commitment to diversity within our company and the communities we serve is something we take very seriously. We are disappointed our efforts to resolve this business dispute amicably have been ignored, and that Mr. Combs has chosen to damage a productive and valued partnership.”

Diddy recently launched his Diddy Direct platform, a portal whose aim is to help consumers and retailers locate his spirit brands.

Weather Park, Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s Son, Credits RZA For Mentorship 

Weather Park


Weather Park was raised in literal Hip-Hop royalty as the son of beloved Wu-Tang Clan rapper, Ol’ Dirty Bastard. Now a rapper himself, Weather Park shared in a new interview that RZA, the Abbott himself, offered mentorship and guidance as he grew into his own.

Weather Park sat down with AllHipHop to discuss his burgeoning career as a Drill rapper, how his sound differs from that of his brother, Young Dirty Bastard, working with the 36 Chambers record label, and more.

From AllHipHop:

AllHipHop: Nice. So you started working with RZA, obviously, and this opportunity with 36 Chambers came about. Can you tell me a little bit about what it’s been like linking with 36 Chambers and what that allowed you to do as an artist?

Weather Park: Well, what I could say is it put me in a very focused state just as far as the direction of my sound. I know I’m good, but I’m constantly challenging myself to be better, just to be exposed to the greatness. It allows me to see myself in a higher light than I’ve ever perceived. You know what I mean? So as I create my music, I still have fun, but I’m creating it in a base of, “What can I?” not even like what, “How can I tell my story in a way that it can resonate with everyone just the same way as Wu-Tang Clan did back in the days?” You know what I mean? So that’s the most impactful part for me. I definitely appreciate the opportunity, and I definitely appreciate the time that we’ve had together because it’s definitely helped me grow as an artist. But the most important thing to me is my impact because I understand how impactful what I come from was.

The entire interview is full of gems and showcases that Weather Park definitely benefited from working with RZA both in music and in life. Read the whole piece here.

Megan Thee Stallion Spotted Getting Cozy With Soccer Player Romelu Lukaku At Overseas Wedding

It seems Megan Thee Stallion and Pardison Fontaine are no longer an item, and Twitter is befuddled.

Spotted on PEOPLE, the Houston rapper has seemingly moved on from Pardi. Thee Stallion was spotted with Belgian soccer player Romelu Lukaku at his teammate Lautaro Martinez’s Lake Como, Italy wedding.

In the sneaky snaps, Megan Thee Stallion, 28, can be seen holding hands with Lukaku,30, who is also under the Roc Nation management, fueling breakup rumors.

The news is a shock to fans of the Pardi and Megan relationship. Not too long ago, the rapper/songwriter dropped a video of himself doing spoken word, with fans immediately thinking he was talking about the “Savage” rapper.

Pardi and Thee Stallion became official in February 2021 after confirming she and Pardi were dealing with each during an Instagram Live session.

“That’s my boo, and I really like him,” Megan told her fans, “I never said hot girls can’t have boyfriends.”

In October, the couple celebrated their 2nd anniversary with separate IG posts. “Yr 2 with U,” Megan wrote in the caption of her post featuring a gallery of photos.

In a now-deleted or archived post, Fontaine wrote in the caption his post, “TWO YEARS AROUND THE SUN .. SEEM LIKE WE BEEN ON OUR OWN PLANET.. I love lovin you ..GOT 4 EVER 2 GO ..”

At the time, the post sparked engagement rumors, but Thee Stallion quickly shot those down, “Lol as nice as last night was we are not engaged,” she said.

The last time Fontaine appeared on Thee Stallion’s timeline was in an October photo dump.

Social Media Reactions

Twitter is reacting to the news, with some fans being happy for Megan Thee Stallion, while others are side-eyeing Pardi no longer being in the picture, while others wonder when the hell did break up.

All good things come to an end. We wish Megan and her new boo nothing but luck, and we are sure Pardi will be just fine.

3rd Man Charged For The Murder Of Jam Master Jay 

Run-DMC Performs In New York City

Over two decades after the murder of Run-DMC’s Jam Master Jay, a third man has been charged for his role in the crime that shook up the Hip-Hop world.
On Tuesday (May 30), federal prosecutors from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York announced charges against Jay Bryant of Queens, New York for the 2002 murder. Bryant is currently being detained on an unrelated separate indictment related to drugs. According to the court documents in the unsealed indictment, the charges include murder while engaged in narcotics trafficking.

When contacted for comment, Bryant’s lawyer César de Castro said that his client would plead not guilty to the new charges. “Securing an indictment in a secret grand jury, applying an extremely low burden of proof, is one thing,” Castro stated. “Proving it at trial is another matter.” Bryant’s arraignment for the new indictment has not been scheduled.

Ronald Washington and Karl Jordan Jr. are the two other men who’ve been charged with the death of Jam Master Jay, also known as Jason Mizell. Both had murder charges brought against them by prosecutors in August 2020, with authorities blaming the October 2002 shooting in the Hip-Hop icon’s studio on his apparent exclusion of the two from “a multi-kilogram, multistate narcotics transaction” after a dispute in July of that year. Both men are now expected to go to trial in January 2024.

Bryant was spotted entering the building after the shooting according to the indictment, and his DNA was also found at the scene of the crime. The documents go on to detail how the 49-year-old confessed to being there later on and claimed that he was the one who shot Jam Master Jay, a claim that prosecutors feel is false as they believe Jordan is the one who fired the two fatal shots.

After a few years on hiatus, Black Mirror will finally be making its return to Netflix. And judging from its first full official trailer, the revered sci-fi anthology series will be coming back with a bang.

Clocking in at five episodes, the new season of Black Mirror will be featuring the likes of Hollywood heavyweights such as Salma Hayek, Aaron Paul, Zazie Beetz and even former heartthrob Josh Hartnett, who unceremoniously took a sabbatical from the acting game at the height of his career in the mid-2000’s.

Speaking to Netflix Tudum, Black Mirror creator Charlie Brooker hopes fans appreciate how the series has been evolving in its previous years and how it continues to expand in its latest installment.

“I’ve always felt that Black Mirror should feature stories that are entirely distinct from one another, and keep surprising people — and myself — or else what’s the point? It should be a series that can’t be easily defined, and can keep reinventing itself,” Brooker said.

As for what we can expect from each episode, the official synopsis of each episode describes some out of this world situations that would intrigue the most curious of minds.

From Netflix Tudum:

An average woman is stunned to discover a global streaming platform has launched a prestige TV drama adaptation of her life — in which she is portrayed by Hollywood A-lister Salma Hayek.
A young couple travel to a sleepy Scottish town to start work on a genteel nature documentary – but find themselves drawn to a juicy local story involving shocking events of the past.
In an alternative 1969, two men on a perilous high-tech mission wrestle with the consequences of an unimaginable tragedy.
A troubled starlet is dogged by invasive paparazzi while dealing with the consequences of a hit-and-run incident.
Northern England, 1979. A meek sales assistant is told she must commit terrible acts to prevent disaster.
Check out the trailer for a better idea of what these episodes will be packing. Let us know if you’ll be tuning into Netflix when Black Mirror premiers June 15 in the comments section below.

Twitter Has Lots To Say About Rumored Megan Thee Stallion & Pardi AKA Pardison Fontaine Split 

AUTO: OCT 24 F1 - Aramco United States Grand Prix

Megan Thee Stallion and Pardi aka Pardison Fontaine were seen as one of Hip-Hop’s top couples but it appears that the Houston Hottie has moved on to date an international footballer. As the rumors continue to persist, fans on Twitter are discussing how Pardi might be handling the breakup and other choice comments as expected.

The romance between Hot Girl Meg and Pardi was documented heavily across the pair’s social media accounts and it looked like their bond was beyond severing. So much so that it was thought that the two would begin working on music together but Megan recently shared that she’s taking a bit of a break from music to focus on her healing.

After images surfaced of Megan at a wedding with Inter Milan star Romelu Lukaku for one of the footballer’s teammates, fans of the Texas beauty wondered aloud what happened with her and Pardi. A quick scan of the pair’s social media reveals that images of the two are long scrubbed from the pages they owned nor is there any mention of the other.

Further, fans online say that Pardi was making a play recently for Megan via a series of poems and the like, signaling that the couple’s issues have persisted longer than the public knew.

An unfortunate byproduct of the rumored split is people using the moment to take personal digs at both Megan Thee Stallion and her rumored ex as the process of a breakup is a deeply personal one, especially with a relationship of their sort that both willingly shared with the fans.

We’ve got the comments from Twitter below.

Azealia Banks Banged It On Matty Healy Over Ice Spice Beef 

Azealia Banks Performs At Noise Pop Festival

Azealia Banks is one of the most talented recording artists of her time but has found more infamy in her social media responses and commentaries on pop culture. The Harlem star took a shot at The 1975 band member Matty Healy over his insensitive comments toward Ice Spice.

Azealia Banks went to her familiar space of Instagram Stories to unload off a series of shots toward Healy, who back in February of this year had some pretty unsavory things to say about Ice Spice. Adding to this, the Bronx rapper was recently added to a remix of Taylor Swift’s “Karma” from her Midnights album. Further, there are rumors that Healy and Swift are dating, which added fuel to Banks’ attack.

“Does Matt Healy know that no one thinks The 1975 makes good music and that he’s a lame poser with a trash cliche band name that actually means nothing,” Banks said, adding, “He’s clearly so pressed that a black girl who knows nothing about him or his music is making more moves and more money than him.”

Banks continued, “Does he know that black women are more coveted in the industry because there’s BIG BUSINESS in female rap. He is so obviously weak in the knees, thin-jawed, and drug addicted that it’s easy to catch his crusty ass lackin.”

Healy was a guest on The Adam Friedland Show earlier this year where the hosts referred to Ice Spice as “Inuit Spice Girl” and a “chubby Chinese lady,” prompting laughter from Healy. Healy did apologize for his comments on the now-deleted episode but hit back at critics in a new profile piece in New Yorker.

In the piece, Healy says of the controversy, “But it doesn’t actually matter. Nobody is sitting there at night slumped at their computer, and their boyfriend comes over and goes, ‘What’s wrong, darling?’ and they go, ‘It’s just this thing with Matty Healy.’ That doesn’t happen.”

On Twitter, reactions to Azealia Banks banging the gat on Matty Healy cropped up and we’ve got a few of them listed below.

HHW Gaming: ‘League of Legends’ Players Overwhelmingly Down For A Walkout Following Latest Riot... 

League of Legends Players Overwhelmingly In Favor of Walkout

The North American League of Legends esports league players have a huge gripe and are walking out.

Riot Games made an interesting decision by no longer requiring teams to field an amateur team. In response, players in the League of Legends league have voted overwhelmingly to walk out in protest of the decision, the LCS Players Association representing North American League of Legends esports players said in a tweet.

“The walk out vote has overwhelmingly passed,” the statement begins.

“This is not a decision LCS players have come to lightly. Countless discussions and debates were had between all LCS players in the week leading to this historic vote. One thing is clear from those conversations – our players want to play and compete above all else. Joining hands to put competition aside is a testament to the significance and urgency of the issues at hand.”

“We stand at this impasse because actions were taken by Riot without prior communication or discussion with the LCS players. The LCSPA sincerely hopes Riot will avert this walk out by joining us in the coming days to have open and transparent discussions so that we can forge collaborative solutions to ensure the best futures for the LCS and the NACL,” the statement concludes.

When Will The Walkout Happen?

The Verge reports that franchises have already dropped their amateur teams since the announcement cut off the ability for budding League of Legends players to compete in the League Championship Series (LCS).

The walkout has no date, but according to the website, it could go down at the beginning of summer (June 1). “We are not announcing the official date or duration at this time in order to make planning and pursuing scab labor a more difficult task,” LCSPA executive director Phil Aram told the website in an email.

The Fallout From The Decision

Players have been voicing their frustration with the league’s decision on Twitter since Riot announced the decision on May 12. In a statement, the LCSPA said, “Over 50 percent of current LCS pros came up through the NACL / Academy system.”

In a tweet, Palafox, a player for NRG’s LCS team, said, “I wouldn’t be in [the] LCS had it not been for Academy.” Chime, a player for TSM, added, “The Academy / NACL system gave me the opportunity to pursue a pro career.”

Five out of the tent teams, 100 ThievesCloud9DignitasGolden Guardians, and NRG in the LCS, also said on Twitter they would not be participating in the upcoming NACL this summer. The LCSPA said two more teams, TSM and Immortals, would not have teams in the NACL either.

Riot’s decision could directly result from the struggle that esports in North America has become. Franchises have said in some statements that trying to keep an amateur team has become a challenge. 100 Thieves recently laid off 100 employees in January.
