50 Cent is NOT playing with Teairra Mari – Judge Orders Bench Warrant

Things just got real when a Judge ordered a bench warrant for Teairra recently  for her failing to appear at a court hearing to contest the charges against her from 50 Cent. Blast Reports:

The Superior Court of Los Angeles admitted to a clerical error in the case between Teairra Mari and 50 Cent, leading to the “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood” star to mock the rapper on social media.

The Blast reported on Monday that a bench warrant was issued for Mari after she failed to show for a hearing in their ongoing legal battle. The documents in the case reflecting the warrant were filed at 8:30 AM on Monday.

But several hours later, the court issued a rare correction, saying that “through inadvertence and/or clerical error, the minute order of 04/22/2019 in the above-entitled action does not properly reflect the Court’s order.”

They explained that while the bench warrant was issued, it was also held until a hearing on May 22. If she skips THAT hearing, then the warrant will become active.

After 50 bragged about the warrant on social media, Mari fired back on Wednesday, writing, “Never believe a ni**a named Curtisss… even if he is your favorite washed up old school rapper…. 😩”

She explained, “Here is the real news: My Lawyers are all the way on point (the best), I never had an arrest warrant… and Spare Change never TRADEMARKED S**T.. he’s just trying to steal drip.. he needs it bad.. you see how this boy dress.”

It’s a safe bet 50 won’t take too kindly to those remarks.

50 Cent got the hearing in question set by the court to examine Mari’s finances as he is taking steps to collect on the $30,000 she owes him in attorney fees.

As The Blast first reported, 50 Cent was awarded $30,000 from Mari after a judge ordered the reality star to pay the rapper after he prevailed in her revenge porn lawsuit.

The judge dismissed all claims against the rapper and awarded him attorney fees to be paid by Mari.

50 Cent tried to argue for Mari to pay his entire $161,660.15 legal bill but the judge didn’t grant him the full amount. Instead, she was ordered to pay a total of $30,618.

Beloved Director John Singleton has passed away at 51

Screen Shot 2019-04-29 at 11.59.20 PMShocking news hit the headlines thirteen days ago that John Singleton had suffered a stroke. I for one was immediately disturbed and distraught until I first heard it was a mild stroke. ( My mother recently suffered a mild stroke as well so I immediately had  confidence that he would have a slow but successful recovery. To my dismay days later I first heard John Singleton was now in a coma and his family was having a discrepancy about his estate.

Screen Shot 2019-04-30 at 1.24.37 AMIn the back of my mind I was thinking, “Why are they fighting over this man’s estate and who would decide what, as I thought that Singleton was showing signs of improvements. Hours later I read the news that John Singleton had passed away at the young age of  51. My heart is literally broken. Singleton was a young black filmmaker who understood LA history.  He perfectly depicted life in South Central LA for a black man and the worries of a black woman raising a young black son grooming him to be a man. Singleton just perfectly understood and knew how to capture it all on film. The LA Times explained it best: Continue reading Beloved Director John Singleton has passed away at 51
