Cuba Gooding Jr. Has a Warrant Out for His Arrest

Remember Cuba Gooding Jr?  He’s the actor that you may not remember because he hasn’t exactly made any major films in a while.  But you could remember him from doing backflips when he won his Academy Award back in 199xxxx (we really can’t remember).

Gooding has appeared back in the news for reasons that might not exactly help his career all that much.  The actor is wanted for allegedly shoving a bartender on Bourbon Street in New Orleans.  The incident took place early Tuesday morning and the female bartender is out for legal blood.

Gooding was at The Olde Absinthe House when he wasn’t happy about a tourist who was trying to take his picture without permission.

“Gooding soon became very aggravated with them,” the New Orleans police said in a statement.

When the bartender came over to tell Gooding to calm down, he allegedly “pushed her away with an open hand.”

That’s when hell broke loose and the woman called the police.   After the bartender told Gooding that the police were coming, he allegedly pushed her again and fled.   He is now wanted for municipal battery.

Gooding was in New Orleans to film “The Butler” with Oprah Winfrey.

Sorry Teyana, You Can’t Pull it Off the Way Janet Did

Soooo, what do you think about Teyana Taylor copying Janet Jackson’s famous 1990s pose?  Yea, we agree with you.  Nobody can really do it like Janet.  Teyana is hot in her own right, but there’s just something missing.  Oh yea, that’s right.  One of these women had sold a few platinum albums creating original music, while the other is just a young wannabe who isn’t creative enough to come up with her own poses.

Are we being too harsh?  Naw, we’re not.  Teyana baby, don’t try this at home.  Go sell a few million records and try again.

Dennis Rodman’s New Talent Is Writing Children Books

Hopefully this won’t be the book cover…

Dennis Rodman Writes A Children’s Book

Don’t expect Dennis Rodman to look to prepaid cards or payday loans to help pay his massive child support debt…..cause he’ll be writing children’s books and selling them to your kids.

Would you let NBA Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman teach life lessons to your kids? The question may soon be answered when the former basketball star releases his own children’s book entitled: Dennis The Wild Bull. Reportedly, Rodman wants to inspire kids by writing about he overcame some of the challenges he faced as a young person. The Huffington Post reports:

Dennis Rodman has staked his claim in the literary world before, penning four autobiographical titles, including 2005′s “I Should Be Dead By Now.”

But the Hall of Famer’s newest work, “Dennis The Wild Bull,” isn’t the latest account of his raucous life, it may actually be a prequel — written for children, TMZ reports.

Details on the children’s book, which is slated to be released later this year, are minimal, but according to a website dedicated to the work, it will “convey good lessons to children based on Dennis’ own experiences as a world class athlete while overcoming obstacles as a child.” Rodman teamed up with author/screenwriter Dustin Warburton and illustrator Dan Monroe to create the book.

Would you buy his book for your children?

No Ball Playing In Harlem: Rucker Park Basketball Tournament Shut Down By NYPD

Well-No ball playing in Harlem! According to Hip-Hop Wired: You can’t say this wasn’t at least a possibility. Yesterday evening (July 30th), the NYPD prevented the Entertainers Basketball Classic from commencing, citing safety concerns, reports DNAInfo. Last week, a suspect now identified as Ricardo Laing of White Plains, NY, shot five people during the tournament held at the legendaryHolcombe Rucker Park in Harlem. Despite additional security being acquired by the tournament’s organizers, the authorities were not having it, and the schedule games were cancelled.

“They came in here and said you have to get out,” said Entertainers founder and CEO Greg Marius. “It’s unfair. We are an international tournament.”

According to Marius, the usually violence free tournament is being unfairly stigmatized.

Marius said he felt police were trying to force him to get people to cooperate with the investigation, a power he feels he doesn’t have.

Police did not immediately comment Monday evening.

Hundreds of people could be seen running during a video of the shooting posted on WorldStarHipHop.com. NBA free agent and former New York Knick Nate Robinson was at the event but was not injured.

Marius said that on the day of the shooting there were fewer police officers and fewer metal barricades than in years past. 

On Monday, two police officers stood near the entrance to the court, and a mobile command center and police van and car also sat outside the park.

Marius said the NYPD’s refusal to let the tournament continue was confusing because the alleged shooter is in custody and the gathering is normally free from violence.

“The last fist fight was in 1995 and we’ve never had a shooting,” Marius said. “The movie theater is still open,” he added, referring to the Aurora, Colo. shooting at a showing of “The Dark Knight Rises.”

Marius said three NBA players were interested in stopping by the tournament this week.

“They are not afraid because they know we are a safe tournament,” Marius said.

Some of the disappointed fans that came out to see yesterday’s games included players from a basketball all the way in Italy. Check out some photos from yesterday at Rucker Park in the gallery.
