(BILLIONAIRE) OLSEN TWINS FATHER CRIES BROKE

Unless your parents are the scum of the Earth, there really is no reason for them to want anything in their older lives. Especially parents of children who are/were child stars. It may be hard to fathom what a parent of a up and coming child star may go thru as that parent. I would imagine a lot of sacrifice is made on the part of the parents, so that their kids can attain the heights of stardom.

MARY-KATE and ASHLEY OLSEN’s father has filed for bankruptcy and is facing foreclosure on his California home, according to a U.S. report.

David Olsen, who fathered the billionaire twins with his first wife Jamie, has fallen behind on payments for his property in Tarzana and owes the bank almost $2.2 million (£1.47 million).

According to documents obtained by the National Enquirer , the stars’ dad and his second wife MCKenzie will be forced out of the house on 9 July (10) if they fail to settle their debt and the property will be sold off at a public auction.
But it’s not the first time Olsen Sr. has faced financial difficulty – he reportedly struggled to cover his tax debts last year (09) too.

An insider tells the Enquirer, “David almost lost his home in 2009 because he had several tax liens but managed to borrow enough money to cover them. But he’s in a worse position now because he’s behind on mortgage payments and won’t be able to stop the auction unless he gets his hands on $2 million.”

DR. DRE AND TIMBALAND SUPRISE HIGH SCHOOL KIDS WITH CONCERT

At first it sounds like the run of the mill shameless promotion artist and record labels do for themselves, but as you read the article, you will see it’s quite the opposite. It’s actually for a good cause.

Dr. Dre and Timbaland went back to school Wednesday night.
The rapper-producers shocked students when they appeared at a Culver City High School graduation party. Dr. Dre introduced Timbaland, who performed the tunes “The Way I Are,” “Promiscuous Girl,” “Carry Out” and “Say Something” on a stage inside the school’s gymnasium. Students invited had no idea the hip-hop masterminds were the guests of honor.
“When we walked in, we were like, ‘Whoa. Is this a second prom?'” said 17-year-old junior Saul Salmeron.
The surprise performance was sponsored by Hewlett-Packard and Interscope Records, who have partnered with the aim of improving digital sound quality. The promotional event, which was recorded for an online documentary, also featured free food, photos and a raffle of HP gear. The company said it was donating $10,000 worth of computer equipment to the school.
“Y’all got a curfew?” Timbaland asked the audience at one point.
Students held up their camera phones and gathered around the stage to get a glimpse of Timbaland and Dr. Dre, who sneaked a peek of the crowd before he took the stage. Dr. Dre, who is currently working on his next album, did not perform with labelmate Timbaland, whom he’s never worked with before.
Is a possible first-time collaboration is in the works?
“We should be so lucky,” said Jimmy Iovine, chairman of Interscope, Geffen and A&M Records, who attended Wednesday’s event. “I can only get them so close. The rest is up to them.”

I never realized that the two have never performed or worked together. How in the hell is that possible? Maybe there will be a change once Dr. Dre releases the forever and a day anticipated “Detox” album.

You gotta love Twitter…sometimes. With one tweet, artist, athletes and those with large followings can tweet out a message, and have hundreds if not thousands join them for a free concert, catch a movie or free food in the case of the 305’s Rick Ross.

Ross tweeted from his twitter account

Lunch on @rickyrozay Lorna’s Carribean and American Restaurant let’s go!!

The message was put out, and the people came. There was also special appearances by Triple C’s members Gunplay, Torch, and Young Breed. DJ Sam Sneaker came through, as well as the new group on Maybach Music, Duce Pound.
Shout out to Lex Promotions and Marketing Group for complementing the free food with free copies of the “Albert Anastacia” mixtape, as well as other Maybach Music Group artist.

RAPPER LIL BOOSIE INDICTED ON MURDER CHARGES

Another one bites the dust. Once again a rapper that kids and some young adults look up to has thrown himself into the judiciary system as another number.

Rapper Lil Boosie Badazz was indicted by a Louisiana grand jury on Thursday 6/17. This stems from an incident that happened in October of 2009.

from mtvnews.com

Police records say Boosie and the two men fired shots into the home of Terry Boyd, then 35. The rapper allegedly was in possession of ecstasy, codeine and marijuana. All three men were charged with conspiracy for their part in the act, police say. A district attorney said the death penalty was not out of the question.

Break out the “Free Boosie” t-shirts.

LAKERS WRAP UP CHAMPIONSHIP/ARTEST RAPS

This Laker team couldn’t be filled with more characters. Well maybe they could be. But as my cohost said on todays show, Ron Artest has out Rodman, Rodman.

Laker nation celebrated the teams back to back championship, Kobe’s 2nd MVP and the franchises 16th trophy. Kobe grabbed the girls and did his post game conference. Derek Fisher cried. So did Pau Gasol. But no celebration topped the list of things Ron Artest did, or probably will do. Let’s start with as the horn blew to seal the deal..

1. In his post game interview (if you call it that) with Doris Burke of ESPN/ABC he went off with thank yous and the ever so timely album plug.

2. Then there was the post game press conference

3. Then he takes the party to the club, in true hood fashion and continues to celebrate, as well as visits Power 106 radio station morning show to rap!

As a a person pulling for Boston, I was hating him during game 7. But I do like him for his carefree attitude and real negro ways.

Congrats Ron.

KING OF DIAMONDS FIGHT NIGHT IN MIAMI

If you live in the Magic City and you frequent the gentlemen clubs, you should be familiar with Fight Night at the King of Diamonds in Miami.

Fight Night at KOD is a hot topic in the streets, and for good reason. Ladies jump in the ring and duke it out to the delight of patrons watching the fights, in between getting a table dance and eating chicken wings. Peep the video!
