Victim's Family Speaks

Q-Tip Blasts Russell Simmons For Defending Gwyneth Paltrow

Q-Tip is weighing in on Gwyneth Paltrow's n-word “tweeting scandal,” and he's upset with Russell Simmons for defending the Oscar winner. Uncle Rush wrote a blog post on his Global Grind website yesterday about the history of the n-word, in a foolish attempt to remove some of the “power” behind the word. The G.O.O.D. Music rapper laid into Simmons, and Touré via Twitter. “Listen Rush Simmons, Toure, and all Black folk who are sympathist [sic] to this gwen paltrow ni**a thing. She may not have meant harm, sure it was in the heat of the moment but that fact that she showed not 1 IOTA of an apologetic tone, given the historical weight of that word is not responsible of G paltrow's part,” he wrote. “As powerful as hiphop is it DOESNT erase the years of damage that not only that word has done but circumstances that usually surrounded it. Sure there is empathy for the black American struggle from all races but the empathy shld be extended to the great pain we as blacks have experienced for generations. “For the pain that we still deal with in our communities daily. Was gwen wrong for recognizing unrelated people to the song as 'ni**as in paris for real'? debatable. BUT she SHLD have. Paltrow shld have offered a 'if i offended anyone im truly sorry' as a person who loves black people and understands there's a scope of black folk that exist beyond the ones that she partied with in Paris who are still dealing w the complexities of their circumstances. black folks that dont [sic] know about giving a white person a 'pass' ... there is a lot to this thing. Rush ? Toure? its ok its all love brothas but lets build ... later! and i got love for yall and im glad we can express our views! peace. BTW i said nothing mean or nasty. i met gwen and chris. kool peeps! so no need to be mean in ur responses.” After she posted the offensive “Ni**as in paris for real@mrteriusnash (the dream) tyty, beehigh,” tweet, The Dream claimed to have sent out the post–which is highly unlikely. Paltrow also attempted to explain herself by using the “it's the title of the song” excuse.

Kim Kardashian Cops a Lamborghini Aventador for Kanye

What does the woman who has everything get the man who has everything for his birthday? If you're Kim Kardashian, you buy your boyfriend Kanye West a rare $750,000 Lamborghini. Ball so hard! Sources close to the couple tell TMZ ... Kim purchased the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 in L.A. for her new BF, who's celebrating his 35th birthday today. But Kanye can't play with it yet because he's in Ireland on the Watch the Throne tour. So we're told Kim wanted to give him a taste of his gift -- so she took a video of the car to show him ... and we're told she's screening the video in person tonight on the Emerald Isle. So it's probably safe to say the car won't be Kanye's only present this year.

Pastor Creflo Dollar charged with attacking his daughter

Megachurch pastor Creflo Dollar was arrested today in Georgia on charges of attacking his 15-year-old daughter during an argument, WXIA-TV reports. The founder and pastor of World Changers Church International is accused of simple battery and cruelty to children for allegedly attacking his daughter during an fight over whether she could attend a party. The police report says Dollar choked his daughter, then threw her to the ground, punched her and hit her with his shoe during a fight at his metro Atlanta home. The responding officer noticed a scratch on the daughter's neck near her throat, WXIA reports. She tells police her father gave her the scratch during the fight. Fayette County Sheriff's Office investigator Brent Rowan says the 50-year-old pastor "got physical" with her, leaving her with "superficial injuries," the Associated Press reports. Dollar, who preaches a "Prosperity theology" in his Sunday sermons that are broadcast internationally, bonded out of a Fayette county jail this morning. The theology, which teaches that God wants to bless the faithful with earthly riches, drew the attention of Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, who targeted six ministers in an investigation in 2011 into the personal use of church-owned airplanes, luxury homes and credit cards by pastors and their families, the Associated Press reports. All six insisted they comply with tax regulations for religious nonprofits. Dollar was one of four ministers who refused to cooperate with the investigation.

Chad Ochocinco Gets Dropped From The New England Patriots

Chad Ochocinco, is going to have to find another day job. The wide receiver has been dropped by the New England Patriots after only one season with the team. Being that he only caught 15 passes during the season, the firing was likely performance based. Ocho took to Twitter to express his gratitude for the Patriots, who lost this year's Super Bowl. “Thoroughly enjoyed the oppurtunity to play for the 'Patriot' organization ... fans were f***ing wicked awesome, I wish all of you the best,” he tweeted to his more than 3 million followers. The Miami native's fiancée, reality star and role-model (according to Vibe Magazine) Evelyn Lozada jokingly tweeted that she would take care of the 34-year-old. “Aww baby you got cut @ochocinco I got your back! I'm the bread winner now, which means I make the rules! ‪#Boom‬,” she wrote. His firing comes on the heels of friend, Terrell Owens, getting the pink-slip from his Indoor Football League team, the Allen Wranglers. Both men also had ill-fated reality shows on VH1. The struggle is real.
