Actor Kristoff St. John who starred in the hit TV series “Young and Restless” has died at age 52. This was confirmed by his attorney Mark Geragos in an email: “Sadly we can confirm.”

According to Officer Rosario Cervantes, of the LAPD, a person was pronounced dead in an incident yesterday in the San Fernando Valley area. She however failed to confirm the name of the deceased.

“We did respond yesterday at 2:05 p.m. on Morea Way for a possible alcohol overdose and that’s going to be a coroner’s case,” Cervantes said.

Kristoff St. John starred as Neil Winters in 1991 on the long-running CBS daytime soap opera. He got nominated nine times for Daytime Emmy Awards, and won 10 NAACP Image Awards.

He also played roles in a number of sitcoms in the 90’s: “Martin,” “The Cosby Show,” “Living Single” and “The Jamie Foxx Show.”

Nipsey Hussle’s Sister Keeps Custody of Daughter, Baby Mama Pissed

Published

Nipsey Hussle

Nipsey Hussle’s daughter, Emani, will not go back to her mother … and the mother is livid.

Tanisha Foster was in court Monday, trying to regain custody of her 10-year-old girl. Emani has been living with Nispey’s sister, Samantha, since his death last March.

Nipsey’s family was in court and squared off with Tanisha, whom they believe is not fit to care for Emani. The hearing was sealed … but there’s another date scheduled in July.

Tanisha’s lawyer, Larry Lewellyn, tells TMZ he’s working with Nipsey’s family on a visitation schedule that will be in Emani’s best interest.

As for Tanisha … she left the courtroom crying and told us she’s “pissed off.”

We broke the story … Samantha believes Emani’s biological mother is unfit to care for the 10-year-old, and Samantha played a crucial role in helping raise her when Nipsey was alive. Samantha wrote in her petition that she wants to “ensure the continued stability for Emani and ensure that she will be able to maintain her current and ongoing relationship” with her fam.

Emani’s mother, Tanisha, broke down crying in court last week, saying she hadn’t seen her daughter in months. At the time, the judge gave them about 20 minutes alone together.

Still … Nipsey’s sister might have a strong case in asking for guardianship. Tanisha has a warrant out for her arrest right now, relating to an unsettled DUI case in 2017. She’s also got a lengthy rap sheet filled with arrests dating back to 2006 and 2007.

Nipsey has another child with Lauren London — a son named Kross — but he’s obviously staying with his mom. No issues there.

Rihanna Confirms Upcoming Reggae Album in New Interview

Published

Rihanna

With Rihanna confirming plans for her ninth studio LP earlier in 2019, the Navy is stalking RiRi’s every move. The 31-year-old sat down with the Times’ T Magazine for an interview conducted by playwright Jeremy O. Harris in London, which touched on her trailblazing Fenty collaboration with LVMH, the highly anticipated forthcoming album, and much more.

The multi-hyphenate says she remains hard at work on a reggae album, which remains without a release date, and admitted to be leaning toward R9 for the project’s title since that’s all she hears from fans. “So far it’s just been R9, thanks to the Navy,” Rihanna stated. “I’m about to call it that probably, ’cause they have haunted me with this ‘R9, R9, when is R9 coming out?’ How will I accept another name after that’s been burned into my skull?”

RiRi would then go on to debunk a few internet forum rumors regarding possible star-studded collaborations on the horizon. There isn’t anything finished with Lady Gaga, but she wouldn’t rule something out for the future. “Maybe because she followed me on Instagram. It’s not in the books right now, but I’m not against it,” she said.

Rihanna also doesn’t see herself reuniting with Drake for the foreseeable future. “Not anytime soon, I don’t see it happening. Not on this album, that’s for sure,” she declared. The Anti artist then pondered the idea of one day releasing a greatest hits album. “I don’t know what my favorite album is — I’m sure if I put all my favorite songs together, it would be a really sick album. Maybe I should do that one day,” RiRi teased.

Items from her first Fenty/LVMH collection will debut through the Fenty online shop starting on May 29. “I want to be as disruptive as possible,” Rihanna explained of her business model. “The brand is not traditional. There is no runway show. It’s a new way of doing things because I believe that this is where fashion is going to go eventually.”

Stonebwoy Explains Why He Pulled A Gun On Stage

Published

Stonebwoy

Reggae and Dancehall artiste, Stonebwoy, has released a statement explaining why he pulled a gun during the brawl between his camp Shatta Wale’s at the 20th edition of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs).

According to the artiste, attacks on him and his loved ones, especially on his wife during the 2017 Ashaiman to The World concert heightened his sense of security.

The artiste revealed being “a victim of incessant vilification and physical attacks” caused a trauma he is yet to escape from.

“My past trauma and my heightened senses are however no excuses for my behaviour – no matter the provocation. Other lives were at stake and Ghana’s reputation was also at stake,” the statement read.

A brawl erupted between Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale camps on stage after Stonebwoy was announced the winner of ‘Reggae/Dancehall Artiste of the Year’, at the VGMA on Sunday which caused the former to pull out a gun.

It’s unclear what Shatta Wale’s intentions were considering the fact that the two, over the years, have hardly seen eye to eye.

Although Stonebwoy apologised when he return to the stage after the brawl, he has once again apologised in his statement for denting the image of Charter House and the VGMAs.

“It is my ardent hope that the show will be remembered for the showcase and appreciation of talents and not the few minutes of regretful madness. I will continue working with Charterhouse and hope this won’t in any way affect my relationship with them,” he added.

The artiste stated he is taking precautions to ensure his personal fears do not put other lives in danger ever again, “such unfortunate incidents have clearly had an impact on me.”

He revealed he would be going for counselling sessions to deal with past violent incidents and also improve on security measures within his team.

Read full statement below.

I would like to extend my sincerest apologies and deepest regrets for my conduct at what should have been the biggest celebration of Ghanaian music last night.

In seeking to entertain Ghanaians, I have been the victim of incessant vilification and physical attacks in recent times. My own dear wife has in the past suffered a knife attack at a concert – an attack that had been meant for me and which resulted in her being rushed to a hospital.

Such unfortunate incidents have clearly had an impact on me and have resulted in my having a heightened sense of alertness. Violence can easily result in trauma – especially violence against those closest to us. This sense of alertness for my personal security and that of my loved ones, unfortunately, resulted in my behaviour at the just ended 20th edition of the VGMAs.

I have been going through difficult times despite the gains my team and I have made musically in raising high the flag of Ghana and also at the 20th Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.

My past trauma and my heightened senses are however no excuses for my behaviour – no matter the provocation. Other lives were at stake and Ghana’s reputation was also at stake. I am taking remedial measures to ensure that there will never be a repetition of such actions or insecurity whenever I am in a public place. These include improving the security measures within my team and also undergoing counselling to deal with past violent incidents against me and my family. These immediate actions are to ensure that such acts do not recur, nor in any way affect my person or my professional performance.

I hereby wish to render an unqualified apology to event organizers Charterhouse Ghana for marring a rather beautiful event, which was streamed across the continent and indeed the world.

It is my ardent hope that the show will be remembered for the showcase and appreciation of talents and not the few minutes of regretful madness. I will continue working with Charterhouse and hope this won’t in any way affect my relationship with them.

To Vodafone Ghana, my sincerest apologies to you for bringing your brand to a low moment like this. As artistes, we appreciate what you invest and continue to invest in our talents. We hope you will continue to support Ghanaian music.

To all Ghanaians I ask for your forgiveness. The Stonebwoy you know always comes in peace and I will advocate for peace.

I appreciate your understanding and again, I am really and truly sorry.
