On season 8 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta Phaedra Parks confronts Kandi Burruss about hiding expensive motorcycles at her house for Phaedra’s husband Apollo while he serves time in jail for identity theft and bank fraud.

From Radar Online:
According to court documents obtained by Radar, the United States government recently filed a notice that read, “The personal property of Apollo E. Nida … is being taken by the United States” in order to help pay off his staggering $1,949,925.67 restitution debt.
On November 17, the U.S. Marshals Service was directed to go to Nida’sRHOA co-star Kandi Burruss‘ home and seize “a silver 2014 Ducati 899 Panicale Motorcycle,” a “white with red top Yamaha Raptor 700R 4-Wheeler ATV,” and “any property in which [Nida] has a substantial nonexempt interest.”
The U.S. Marshals Service has until November 17, 2016, to sell that property “on an internet auction site, through a broker, or in a commercially reasonable manner.”
The upcoming biopic based on the life of iconic rapper Tupac Shakur has taken a huge step forward thanks to the casting of newcomer actor Demetrius Shipp Jr. in the leading role. The movie called All Eyez on Me, started filming last week in Atlanta with music video director Benny Boom.
According to TMZ, Shipp’s father worked in the music industry and had met Shakur a number of years ago. Demetrius was introduced to the legendary rapper at a young age and has been a fan ever since. To top it all off, he shares a striking resemblance to the late hip-hop icon, which was definitely a selling point for the producer, Hutton.
The film is also set to feature Tupac’s death, which took place in 1996.
Demetrius bares a strikingly resemblance to the late Tupac, hopefully his acting will be on point as well.
Rita Ora is suing her label Roc Nation and owner Jay Z for stifling her career according to Billboard.
In a complaint filed in Los Angeles, the singer claims that she was “orphaned” by the imprint when it shifted its focus to sports
management and other endeavors.
“When Rita signed, Roc Nation and its senior executives were very involved with her as an artist,” the complaint reads. “As Roc Nation’s interests diversified, there were fewer resources available and the company suffered a revolving door of executives. Rita’s remaining supporters at the label left or moved on to other activities, to the point where she no longer had a relationship with anyone at the company.”
Rihanna held at her 2nd annual Diamond Ball, which took place at Barker Hanger in Santa Monica, Calif.
