Robert Kraft Challenging Florida Constitution Over Spa Video Tape

New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft is doing everything he can to keep his spa tape video out the public’s hands.

According to reports, Kraft’s legal team has filed a request for prosecutors to hand over all evidence about the “number individuals who were recorded on video in the massage rooms while receiving lawful massages or were not charged.” 

Deadspin reports that Kraft’s lawyers, William Burck and Alex Spiro, are targeting Florida’s public records laws, claiming that they violate the Fourth Amendment the U.S. Constitution, which is designed to protect citizens from unlawful searches and seizures.

In other words, Kraft contends that police had no right to record video inside the Orchids Asia Day Spa. However, as Deadspin notes, Florida’s constitution strongly endorses public records, which includes police evidence and, therefore, the videos taken by Jupiter police inside the massage parlor.

Kraft, who was recently spotted at a Boston Celtics playf game, allegedly paid and received sexual acts at the Orchid Asia Spa in Jupiter twice.

The videotaped incidents occurred on January 19 and January 20, the same day the Patriots played the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship game. Officials describe Kraft’s visit to the Orchids Asia Day Spa:

“employee] escorted Kraft to a room identified as JPPD Cam 2. There, the two hugged each other and Kraft took f all his clothing, laid face up on the massage table and employee] hugged him again. At approximately 1102hrs. (Employee) began manipulating Kraft’s penis and testicles and then put her head down by his penis. This went on several minutes.”

“After a few minutes, employee] wiped Kraft in the area his genitals with a white towel, helped him get dressed and hugged him again. Kraft gave employee] one $100 bill plus at least one other unidentifiable bill.” 

Le’Veon Bell Shows New York Jets Pride During Nightclub Performance

Le’Veon Bell had a very public breakup with the Pittsburgh Steelers that ended with the Steelers forgoing the franchise tag process and letting Bell walk away. Bell ended up signing a deal with the New York Jets and he seems to be pretty happy about his decision. Immediately after signing his deal, Bell did an interview where he explained how he had no regrets and ended up with a “beautiful” contract.

“I don’t regret anything that had happened,” Bell said according to ESPN. “Everything’s happened for a reason. Who can say that if I played last year, you know, if I do go out and play last year on a one-year franchise tag, if I do get hurt, do I end up sitting in this position today, being with the New York Jets on a beautiful deal?”

While performing at the HQ2 Nightclub at Ocean Casino Resort in Atlantic City over the weekend, Bell showed f his Jets pride by displaying a Jets logo on the screen behind him. There were “JETS” chants going on as Bell performed songs from his recent mixtape, “Life’s A Gamble.” 

The footage above was obtained by TMZ and it seems as though both the fans and Bell himself are very excited about his upcoming season.

Sada Baby Challenges Eminem’s Detroit Rap Legacy

Detroit, MI – Eminem’s career is simply relegated to an honorable mention in the Top 5 of Detroit rappers “just off the strength of 8 Mile,” according to Sada Baby his interview with SayCheese TV.

When asked is Slim Shady in his Top 5, the Bartier Bounty rapper responded, “Out of Detroit? Hell nah!” before answering with a question: “You talking about my Detroit?”

He further defended his take by explaining how the Oscar-winning rapper — who just happens to be the second highest-selling male artist ever — is not relatable.

“I ain’t know we had trailer parks until I saw 8 Mile,” he continued.
And I still don’t know nobody that know that nigga … Eminem will get to saying some shit going over everybody head like I might be able to decipher some of that shit.”

The “Bloxk Party” collaborator was asked, “When riding through Detroit nobody is playing Eminem?” he responded with “Hell nah is you serious?”

Sada’s Top 5 included Big Sean, Tee Grizzley, DeJ Loaf, Blade Icewood, and himself.

Not only has Eminem’s legacy been revered, his present-day feats are also nothing to scoff at either. The 46-year-old star sold more albums than anyone in 2018.

His recently released album, Kamikaze, was ranked No. 19 on HipHopDX’s Best Rap Albums of 2018 list.

R. Kelly Could End Up Back In Jail Again Over Child Support Payments: Report

R. Kelly has already gone to jail twice in the past few months and there’s a good chance he could be heading back for the third time. Unfortunately, if he does head back to jail, it’ll be for the same reason he was locked up in early March.

R. Kelly has reportedly missed the last two months his child support payments to his ex-wife Drea Kelly who’s supposed to receive $20,833 a month, TMZ reports. The singer was already sent to jail in March after he failed to pay months worth child support payments which amounted to $161,633. The singer was released after someone cleared the debt for him. With two months child support owed, there’s a chance he could return to jail. 

Kelly has told the judge that he could no longer afford the $20K a month in child support and that he wanted it to be lowered. A judge said that he’d hear out Kelly’s reason but not until May 8th when the singer’s next hearing is.

Other debts that Kelly owed back have reportedly sucked his bank account dry. The singer owed his landlord $173k over back rent. One his bank accounts had $150K seized, leaving him with a balance -$13. Two Kelly’s accounts with Bank Of America also had money seized from them, totaling $154,527.22 which left him with a remainder $625 to his name.

Earlier this month, the singer was paid $22K for an hour-long club appearance in Springfield, Illinois which he apparently didn’t cough up to Drea for child support. 

Sony Reveals Official PS5 Details: Loading Screens No More?

Gamers rejoice. Wired recently met up with Sony for a meeting surrounding the PlayStation 5, where they witnessed the upcoming, unfinished console’s potential. In a presentation led by lead system architect Mark Cern, Sony revealed some truly tantalizing details about their upcoming console. For one, it will include a “high-spec solid state drive,” as well as a truly powerful Graphics Processing Unit, capable supporting ray tracingWired describes ray tracing as “a technique that models the travel light to simulate complex interactions in 3D environments.”

There will also be an increased emphasis on the audio experience. “As a gamer,” explains Cern, “it’s been a little bit frustration that audio did not change too much between PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. With the next console the dream is to show how dramatically different the audio experience can be when we apply significant amounts hardware horsepower to it.” While the advanced audio will work on television speakers, as well as external sound systems, he does cite headphones as the “gold standard.” 

Though many initially thought it impossible, Cern confirms that the PS4 will have a Solid State Drive, and uses Marvel’s Spider Man as a means measuring the difference the upgrade makes. While fast traveling previously took up to fifteen seconds on the PS4, took .0.8 seconds on the prototypical “devkit” version the PS4. And fear not, PS4 gamers – the console will be backward compatible. All things considered, the PlayStation 5 sounds like an accomplishment on every level. Look for more news to surface in the coming months, but don’t expect the console to arrive this year.

Daz Dillinger Escapes Jail Time Over Marijuana Possession Charge

Last September, in the midst a heated (though admittedly one-sided) feud with Kanye West, Daz Dillingerfound himself catching a possession charge. The rapper was found with over an ounce marijuana, as well as THC Pods and a concoction purple-tinted “Cannabis lean.” Despite the fact that he was caught with marijuana, the Dogg Pound rapper was placed in jail, and later indicted on two felony drug charges. As a result, Daz was actually looking at some hard time – up to twenty-five years, to be specific.

Now, however, it would appear some good news has befallen the former Death Row veteran. TMZ has confirmed that Daz has taken a plea deal that avoids jail time altogether. While that bodes well, Daz still walks away with three years probation, which in itself can pose further problems for rappers down the line. Alongside the probation period, Daz must also pay one thousand dollars in fines. It might have been a little worse had one the felony charges not been dismissed due to lack evidence, but for now, it looks like Daz has caught a break. 

Maybe Daz oughta move to Canada, where marijuana is not only decriminalized, but legal. In any case, Daz remains in good spirits, taking to Instagram to celebrate the fact that it’s “finally ova.” One has to wonder if the days tossing people in jail over possession marijuana will ever come to an end. 

The Game Calls For Laura Ingraham’s Termination: "We Want Her Fired, Period!!!"

At this point, Fox News studios likely has a big red button with Game’s face plastered upon it, enclosed in emergency glass beside a miniature chisel. Following the heated roasts Tomi Lahren, The Game has made his position toward the Right-Wing news channel abundantly clear. Which is to say, there’s no love lost in that department. Now, following some shockingly disrespectful commentary from Laura “Shut Up And Dribble” Ingraham and her guest Raymond Arroyo, it would appear he’s been pushed to the edge. It all started during a segment on The Ingraham Angle, when Ingraham and Arroyo began laughing at Nipsey Hussle, ridiculing his “FDT” track and belittling the impact his death.

The segment caught Game’s attention, and the Born To Rap artist penned a lengthy message directed at Fox News, Ingraham, and any her supporters. While he’s ten hot-headed with a penchant for low-blows, his approach on this go-around is actually rather measured, give or take a few “disrespectful c**t” references. “So lemme tell you what’s going to happen here,” begins Game. “@foxnews fires this disrespectful c**t by tomorrow, Monday morning or you will lose millions viewers one person at a time until it drastically effects your ratings, views etc.”

He continues outlining his call to action, explaining that “we are NO LONGER laying quiet while you continuously disrespect our brother, culture African Americans as a whole. I will use my platform & call on my peers to do the same. Nips passing nor his legacy is to be taken lightly as there will be consequences for any disrespect now or in the future as long as I have a voice !!!” He even introduces a tangible goal, the sacking Laura Ingraham, imploring his fans to voice their demands across various platforms. “We will not be accepting any apology from her,” he warns. “We want her fired, PERIOD !!!!!”

Your move, Fox News. 

Daz Dillinger Dodges Jail In Weed Bust Case

Powder Springs, GA – Daz Dillinger agreed to a plea deal following his 2018 arrest for marijuana possession in Georgia. Tha Dogg Pound member avoided jail time by pleading guilty to one count of possession of more than an ounce of marijuana last week, according to documents first obtained by TMZ and confirmed by HipHopDX.

Dillinger, whose real name is Delmar Arnaud, was sentenced to three years of probation and ordered to pay a $1,000 fine.

The deal worked out well for the veteran rapper/producer, who was facing up to 25 years in prison after being indicted on two felony drug charges.

Last September, Dillinger was arrested at his Powder Springs, Georgia home as part of a drug raid. Police found 117 grams of marijuana, 10 THC pods, THC oil, a THC vaporizer and a container labeled “Cannabis Lean.”

He was initially booked for 12 counts of possession of a controlled substance and one count of possession of more than one ounce of marijuana. Only two charges stuck in the indictment against Dillinger, but one was later dismissed due to insufficient evidence.

Last October, reports indicated that Ms. Bieber had registered her full maiden name, “Hailey Bieber” as a way to set things in motion for the release a new clothing line.

Pistons’ Blake Griffin Expected To Miss Entire First-Round Series: Report

The Detroit Pistons were facing an uphill battle in their first-round matchup against the top-seeded Milwaukee Bucks even if Blake Griffin was fully healthy. Without Blake Griffin, as evidenced by the outcome Game 1 on Sunday, the Pistons’ will be lucky to keep any the games within double digits.

According to Yahoo Sports’ Vincent Goodwill, Griffin is expected to miss the entire first-round series due to the left knee injury that has plagued him for weeks. Although the All Star forward is listed as “day to day,” Goodwill notes there’s a “slim chance” Griffin will be cleared to play by next weekend, which likely means his season is over.

Griffin, 30, averaged 24.5 points, 7.5 rebounds and 5.4 assists in 75 games this season.

“Obviously, it’s very, very frustrating. You sacrifice your body throughout the year and play through little injuries to get to this point,” Griffin told reporters following the 121-86 loss in Milwaukee. “Obviously, very frustrated. I never like to feel like I’m leaving my guys out there.

“I have to do what our organization, our training staff, our doctors think is best—and that’s the bottom line.”

The Pistons and Bucks will return to the court for Game 2 on Wednesday night – that game will air on NBATV at 8:00pm ET.
