George Zimmerman was arrested yesterday on aggravated assault, criminal mischief, and domestic battery charges after he allegedly broke a glass table, pointed a shotgun at his new girlfriend and then kicked her out of the house that they shared. He was arraigned today with a bail set at $9,000. Nice work man.
I’ve seen some stunner moves in my life, but oh my goodness. Flo Rida just wrapped his Bugatti Veyron in gold. Guess that radio rap money is treatin’ him well. Don’t hate the player, hate the game!
Just when we thought super producer Scott Storch was on a clean path, he’s wanted by the po-po’s once again. This time he is wanted by Florida police for not paying around $30,000 in child support. The reason there’s a warrant out for his arrest is because he skipped out on the court date that was issued to explain why he can’t pay the child support. He can avoid jail by paying $28,300 but according to his terrible financial history he won’t be able to do that.
Moving right along with more new related to Tupac, the company that created the Tupac Hologram for Coachella reportedly filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy this morning in a Delaware court. MTV has more info below on exactly what happened and why.
Apparently creating a Tupac hologram isn’t the most lucrative business venture, despite the shock waves it may have sent across pop culture.
Digital Domain, the visual effects company that blew minds earlier this year by digitally resurrecting late rapper at the Coachella festival, has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in Delaware after a series of costly projects put it in financial jeopardy.
According to the Los Angeles Times Digital Domain Group has reached a deal with a private investment firm to sell its Venice, California, division, Digital Domain Productions Inc. — which provides visual effects for film, television and advertising — for $15 million. As of June 30, Digital Domain Media Group said it had assets of $205 million and liabilities of $214 million and the Times reported that the company’s core business won’t be affected by the Chapter 11 filing.
The bankruptcy filing came a week after Digital Domain defaulted on a $35 million loan to a group of investors and announced that it was closing its controversial 115,000-square-foot animation studio in Port St. Lucie, Florida, where it laid off most of its 320 employees.
Since it was co-founded in 1993 by “Avatar” director James Cameron and several partners, Digital Domain has grown into one of the busiest visual effects shops in the business. The company has created iconic effects for nearly 100 movies, including “Titanic,” “Tron: Legacy,” “Transformers,” “Speed Racer,” “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” “Thor” and “Star Trek.”
Following the intense buzz created by the ‘Pac hologram, Digital Domain announced that it was working on a virtual Elvis? and that there were discussions about taking the Shakur projection on a stadium tour. But, despite its successes and seven Oscar wins, the company posted losses of $14.8 million in the first quarter of 2012 as a result of the expensive new Florida studio, fewer film projects and the expensive price tags of some of its new efforts.
Just when we thought all this zombie talk was over, another man strikes once again to scare the crap out of everyone in America. This man’s name is Charles Baker (gold grillin’ in the pic above) from Palmetto, FL. He ran up on his girlfriend’s house, tore all his clothes off, and bit out a piece of flesh from another man’s arm. Once the police arrived it took a lot of tazers to take him down. He was also very high off an unknown substance but if we had to guess bath salts is probably the best answer. What is this world coming to?
Looks like Rick Ross was having a little too much fun on one his boats the other day and was pulled over by a Police boat for smoking marijuana. Since the cops smelt marijuana the had the right to execute a search but nothing was found. Everybody was released and continued being bawses. Close call for Ricky.
The latest update in the Trayvon Martin case is that George Zimmerman could walk away free when all is said and done. This is what state attorney Angela Corey had to say about the matter. For more information click here.
“The stand-your-ground law is one portion of justifiable use of deadly force,” veteran State Attorney Angela Corey said. “And what that means is that the state must go forward and be able to prove it’s case beyond a reasonable doubt… So it makes the case in general more difficult than a normal criminal case.”
As you may have heard already, 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was visiting family in Sanford, Florida and was gunned down by a man by the name of George Zimmerman that thought he was “suspicious” in the neighborhood. The police told the man that they would handle the situation after they were called but he decided to take matters into his own hands and killed the boy. The man was later released and claimed that he was acting in self-defense. Now there’s no way the FBI or the Department of Justice is going to just let this slide and move on so they’ve decided to do a full on investigation.
“The department will conduct a thorough and independent review of all of the evidence and take appropriate action at the conclusion of the investigation. The department also is providing assistance to and cooperating with the state officials in their investigation into the incident. With all federal civil rights crimes, the government must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that a person acted intentionally and with the specific intent to do something which the law forbids — the highest level of intent in criminal law.” _ Source
This is such an awesome thing for Adidas to do. They had a couple sneaker heads give reviews of their most recent shoes and while that was happening had Derrick Rose and Dwight Howard come in to surprise them. The Derrick Rose one seemed a little awkward but still a great surprise. Here’s both of them.
This player’s name is Landus Anderson and he plays basketball for Florida High in Tallahassee. He only has one arm and is averaging 19 points, 8 rebounds, 2.5 blocks, and 2.9 steals per game.
“I wish I could go right, go right with my right arm,” Anderson concedes. But he adds, “I think I’m pretty good how I am, with what I have. Still, he made the varsity lineup in his freshman year.“He gets the ball off the rim and is out and gone, running past people down the floor,” marvels Florida High coach Al Blizzard. “You’re not going to stop him in the open court, I don’t care what level you’re on.”
