Sean Levert Widow Wins $4 Million In Wrongful Death Suit

Sean Levert who crooned a string of hits with his late brother Gerald Levert ’80s trio LeVert, died in police custody in March 2008. He was in his first week of a two year sentence for failure to pay $90,000 in child support to three children from previous relationships. In the six days he was in the Cleveland jail, Sean was denied his anti-anxiety medication, Xanax. A coroner’s report later concluded that Xanax withdrawal contributed to his death.

His wife at the time, Angela Lowe, subsequently filed a wrongful death lawsuit and on Thursday, before the case went to trial, a deal was struck.”And she was awarded a 4 million dollar settlement we know this won't bring back her husband but it's good to see justice prevail.

Maxwell Cancels Remaining Concerts Because Of Jill Scott And Erykah Badu!!

Word on the street is if you are a Maxwell fan, and didn’t see him this past weekend in Atlanta, you might be SOL...Sh**T Out Of  Luck??  Maxwell has cancelled the rest of his shows because  the Diva's including him are not getting along with Jill Scott and Erykah Badu.  Snitches are saying he's He apparently was pissed because the ladies consistently go over on their time, each show, when their finish mark is actually 8:30.
This limits the time Maxwell can make the woman melt and his collection of panties being thrown on the stage are at an all time low. In the ATL concert, Maxwell snatched a pair of thongs from the stage, and inhaled deeply. He said, “ladies I want to smell it, I want to smell it…” If he doesn’t have the time to smell his thongs, there will be beef backstage. All of Maxwell’s concerts after the NYC show on June 26th have been postponed or cancelled.  Wow ladies you will be missing a lot!!

Real talk...Jill Scott, and Erykah Badu can be headliners and have just as much material as that big old Diva Maxwell and that's the real beef ...JEALOUS!!

New Music: Dr. Dre f/ Jay-Z – ‘Under Pressure’

Dr. Dre’s single featuring Jay-Z Under Pressure was released leaked online.  The song is likely to be the first release from Dre’s long awaited Detox album- which he’s been working on for over 10 years.  It opens with a verse from the West Coast producer using a growled rapping style similar to DMX. Jigga then comes in his own verse. This will have to grow on me.  The song isn't mixed or mastered and has no chorus, but it offers more than an inkling of where the two legends are headed.

Fans Pour Out for Drake’s Release Day

As Drake vast in his success, he hit up NYC for the release of his new album "Thank Drake Me Later"  in store at Bestbuy.  Lines wrapped around the block as eager fans, some crying, waited to meet their idol on his long-awaited album release day. The Drakeover was suppose to continue with A free concert featuring  Drake but was shut down by New York City on Tuesday after crowds became too much for Big Apple authorities to handle.

“It’s cancelled. Riot police shut it down. It was just too many people. Over 15,000 people and it was just too unmanageable,” said a spywitness

Drake has a lot to be thankful for, with all the records and hype behind his name without ever dropping an album until now.  Drake will celebrate what he’s calling “The Best Summer He’s Ever Had” by premiering an one-hour MTV documentary, Drake: Better Than Good Enough, on Music Television Wednesday, June 23 at 10pm ET/PT.

First Look: 'Real Housewives of D.C.'

DC being "chocolate city" somehow I though it might be more African American cast?  This August Bravo is splitting the diff between New Jersey and Atlanta by introducing its fifth "Real Housewives" city: Washington, D.C. But political intrigue's got nothing on scandal as the inclusion of Michaele Salahi and her husband (a.k.a The White House Party Crashers) will undoubtedly be the most intresting factor behind more than half the viewers.

Especially since it's believed that Bravo's cameras followed the couple as they snuck in to the White House State Dinner in 2009. Spoiler alert: there's no footage of that evening.  The only mention of the incident appears as a throw away line in a truncated group bio: "Michaele Salahi, who became the focus of media attention following the White House state dinner last November..."

Stacie Turner: Tthis Alexandria, VA native has it all – a Harvard MBA, successful real estate practice, and vigorous civic and philanthropic agenda. Stacie and her husband Jason easily move amongst Washington’s unique brew of local, federal, and international players

The source told The Associated Press that doctors at the hospital think it was a mild heart attack, but this had not yet been confirmed.  On Monday, Jackson was in L.A. with other family members attending a pre-trial hearing for Dr. Conrad Murray, who has pleaded not guilty to an involuntary manslaughter charge in Michael's death.

Video: Katy Perry f/ Snoop Dogg – ‘California Gurls’

If you like Ke$ha "Tik Tok",then you will love this fun vibrant West Coast summer anthem. Katy Perry serves up the sticky-and-sweet visuals for her No. 1 hit “California Gurls” featuring the West Coast’s own Snoop Dogg. Instead of going the obvious route with palm trees and sandy beaches, the Santa Barbara native frolics among cotton candy clouds and cantankerous Gummy Bears in the Candy land-inspired video. Snoop dons a cupcake-covered coat, while Katy wears her peppermint/gummy bear Bikinis.  I like this song its fun!!
