R&B singer Michel’le made headlines last week, as she shared her story with intense details of how abusive Dr. Dre allegedly was during their previous relationship.

The R&B Divas star claimed that the hip-hop mogul had given her 5 black eyes, and many more injuries from the violence, and now she’s revealing another horrific detail.

While speaking with VladTV, Michel’le claims that Dre once pulled a gun on her after the two got into a very heated argument, and missed her by just a few inches while she was running to the bathroom.

She also says that he didn’t pull a gun on her just to scare her, but believes he had the intent on hitting her with a bullet. Apparently, she left the bullet in the wall, as a reminder to him of what had happened.

Four San Francisco sheriff’s deputies were placed on administrative leave and are currently under investigation after a public defender accused them of forcing Black and Latino inmates into “gladiator-style” fight clubs, CNN reports.

On Thursday, Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi asked the U.S. Justice Department to investigate after the city’s public defender, Jeff Adachi, accused White deputies of coercing the inmates — all men of color — to fight each other or risk facing torture. The deputies reportedly placed bets on the brutal matches.

In one incident, an inmate identified as Ricardo Palikiko Garcia was forced to fight an inmate twice his size.

According to CNN:

Adachi interviewed the victims, who were being held at the Hall of Justice, including inmate Garcia. “Deputy’s betting against me and forcing me to fight and if I don’t fight, then he’s basically telling me that he was going to beat me up…

50 Cent and French Montana used Instagram as a platform for their jokes this weekend. The two rappers aimed at one another with bars and photos.

“What in the #EFFENVODKA world is going on in this picture man. 😳 SOMETHINGS not right.#SMSAUDIO #FRIGO.”

Montana fired back with his own post. His caption was “Stop!!!! Legendary !!”

It just makes sense…Of course, Ross is on his fifth album. And like I said, he’s only getting bigger. This is going to be Ross’ first platinum album. He never went platinum. So when 50…

The New York Police Department officer cleared in Eric Garner’s chokehold death is being sued over a 2010 car crash that left a man with “severe and permanent” injuries, reports the New York Daily News.

The officer, Daniel Pantaleo, was recently named as a defendant in a civil suit filed in Queens Supreme Court against the department, charging that the officer crashed a police vehicle into another man’s car on Staten Island on June 20, resulting in “severe and permanent” injuries to the victim’s neck, back, left shoulder, and knee.

Banned: Don’t Bring Your Selfie Stick To Coachella Or Lollapalooza

Global Grind

Selfie Stick

If you were planning on going to a festival this season, a selfie stick may have been on your list of essentials. What better way to capture your time in the crowd during unforgettable musical performances?

Well, if you were planning on bringing one to Coachella and/or Lollapalooza, that’s exactly what you’re going to have to start thinking about: a better way. The vanity device landed itself on the list of banned items for both fests, with Coachella specifically saying that they won’t allow selfie sticks or “narsisstics.”

Despite the typo, it seems like an attempt to eliminate all narcissists from the festival is far-fetched. But, we guess eliminating the selfie stick is their idea of the first step.

Before making your way to Cali, check out the Coachella website for other items you won’t be able to bring.
