DONNA SUMMER Private Funeral Service Set for Tomorrow MAY 23, 2012

RIP Donna!
According to TMZ:  “Disco Queen” Donna Summer will be laid to rest Wednesday during a private ceremony at a church in Nashville, TN.

We’re told the church is expecting a capacity crowd — roughly 1,000 people — but the service is invitation only.

The family is adamant … they don’t want the ceremony to become a media spectacle and they’ve put together a strict guest list consisting of close friends and family members.

It’s unclear if any of Donna’s famous friends will attend — but we’re told people are flying in from all over the country.

TMZ broke the story … Donna passed away in Florida last week after battling lung cancer. She was 63.

Young Buck Is Headed To Prison For Gun Possession

First it was the IRS-Now Prison! We praying for you Young Buck!
According to TMZ: Young Buck won’t be a free man much longer — TMZ has learned the rapper has agreed to serve 18 months in prison for gun possession, following a massive IRS raid on his Nashville home in 2010.

According to the deal, Buck agreed to plead guilty to possessing firearms and ammunition as a convicted felon.

According to legal docs filed in the case, federal agents recovered the firearms in Buck’s house during a 2010 raid — when feds busted into the house to repossess a bunch of the rapper’s belongings to settle a $300,000 tax debt.

According to the docs, feds found a .40 caliber Glock 22 in Buck’s home along with ammunition. As a convicted felon, Buck is prohibited from possessing ANY kinds of firearms.

As for the felony rap — Buck was convicted of assault with a deadly weapon after stabbing some guy at the Vibe Awards in 2004.

The judge signed off on the plea deal already but won’t formally sentence the rapper ’til July 13th.

Rapper Young Buck Gets Evicted

Young Buck can’t PAY for a break-literally!!! The Man is trying to take everything! Even his name!

TMZ is reporting that the rapper Young Buck, who once rapped about how much money he has, is in serious financial trouble.  The rapper has been booted out of his Tennessee mansion and the IRS is after him for $300,000 in unpaid taxes.

Buck has been ordered to vacate his home within the week.  Court documents show that the judge agreed to let Buck sell his mansion, as long as he used the proceeds to pay his IRS bill.

Buck was shot at in early March, which basically makes this a really bad year for him.
Maybe one day rappers will learn how to get an education so they don’t keep getting ripped off by their accountants and lawyers who actually did go to school.
