Justin Gatlin: “I Apologise For Any Wrongdoings Or Any Black Eyes I Brought Onto The Sport”

#WeGotYourBack #WeGotItCovered #BreakingNews #ITVNews #UK #London #USA #SportsNews #JustinGatlin #WorldChampion #100Meters #Apology #DrugBans #Testosterone #IAAF

Controversial 100 metre world champion Justin Gatlin has made his first public apology about the furore caused by his doping bans, in an exclusive interview with ITV News.

The American also said the booing he received at this month’s London championships hurt, but helped motivate him to beat Usain Bolt.

The sprinter has served two drug bans and has received criticism for reportedly not showing remorse for his actions.

Gatlin was first banned in 2001 for taking a banned supplement for Attention Deficit Disorder, which he had been using since childhood.

He was given an early reinstatement by world athletics’ governing body the IAAF the following year who also accepted at the time that Gatlin had not cheated.

He was banned again in 2006 after testing positive for the steroid testosterone. Gatlin maintains to this day that this was as a result of sabotage by a disaffected member of his team.

The American athlete says he wrote a letter of apology to the IAAF years ago – however he told ITV News Sports Editor Steve Scott that if people want a public apology then they can have one.

“If they wanted an official apology, I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I apologise for any wrongdoings or any black eyes I brought onto the sport, I love the sport that’s why I’ve come back to run and try to run to the best of my ability and for that I’ve worked hard to right my wrongs”.

Being presented with a gold medal for the 100m World Championships should have been a career highlight for Justin, instead it was marred with jeering and booing from the crowd in London, which the athlete admits “did hurt”.

He said: “It did hurt because I’m not there for myself, I’m up there for my country, I’m up there for my supporters, I didn’t do it for myself. Especially when I was at the starting line I wasn’t there for me. I was there for people back at home watching who weren’t able to come.

“Maybe the boos were for me but standing on the podium was for the people who have loved me and my country that I love,” said Gatlin.

The American star said he had to overcome his concern about what people thought about him before he came back to running:

“I wanted people to respect me, to love me, to know that I’m a hard worker like anybody else.

“I felt like sometimes that fell on deaf ears, and it took away from my focus of being a runner because I was so consumed by what people would think about me and judging me, that I really had to just dial-in and just focus on being a runner and let natural talent do all the talking.”

There has been friendly rivalry between the much-loved Usain Bolt and the 35 year old throughout their careers but with Bolt now retiring, public forgiveness might be easier to come-by.

Gatlin is next due to compete at the Diamond League meeting in Zurich this week.

50 Cent Admits On Instagram That He Leaked Episodes Of Power 

#WeGotYourBack #WeGotItCovered #MicstagesUK #BreakingNews #HipHopDXNews #USA #EntertainmentNews #50Cent #ExecutiveProducer #Power #Series #Film #Music #LeakedEpisodes #CriminalInvestigation 

After receiving some positive news about Power’s ratings, executive producer 50 Cent took to Instagram on Wednesday (August 16) to celebrate the show’s success. In the caption, he seemingly fesses up to leaking three Power episodes as well.

“POWER Ratings up another 10 percent for episode 408,” he wrote. “They glad I leaked the shit now. LOL #SAVAGELIFE Now watch what I do on BET. #50Centralbet.”

Given 50 Cent’s tendency to joke around, his comment about leaking the episodes could’ve easily been his way of goading the people at STARZ. The Queens rap vet has yet to clarify any of his statements.

50 first alluded to the leak on Sunday (August 13) when he wrote on Instagram, “STARZ thinks I leaked my own show.”

Although 50 may be joking, STARZ is taking the leak seriously. The network revealed its plans to launch a forensic investigation to nab the culprit and is fully prepared to take legal action against the person or persons responsible for the incident.

It Looks Like R.Kelly Is In The Clear, Again!!

#WeGotYourBack #WeGotItCovered #BreakingNews  #HipHopDxNews  #USA #EntertainmentNews #Music  #FultonCounty #RKelly #SexCultAllegations

FULTON COUNTY, GA – After R. Kelly was accused of holding women against their will in a sex cult last month, it looked like another crushing blow to the legendary R&B singer’s career. In wake of the controversial news, four of Kelly’s concerts were reportedly canceled due to poor ticket sales, which he vehemently denied.

Now that the proverbial dust has settled around the allegations and people have largely resumed focus on other matters, the Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard has announced his office is not currently investigating Kelly, according to Atlanta’s FOX 5.

Fulton County commission chairman John Eaves, who is currently running for mayor of Atlanta, called a press conference on Friday (August 11) to demand an investigation into the situation. He alleged the investigators who were working the case had found new information that raised some concerns.

“I’m going to stress to the [Fulton County] district attorney that a full investigation be done, because I believe questions should be answered,” he said.

Ahead of the conference, he also released a statement to the media. “Today, I am asking District Attorney Paul Howard and his investigative officers and prosecutors to fully review the report of the Johns Creek Police and follow every lead — no matter where it leads, or who it implicates, and bring those persons to swift justice,” it read.

Despite his request, D.A. Howard revealed shortly after the conference that no criminal investigation into Kelly’s actions is being conducted at this time, but he will “examine the R. Kelly file to determine next steps.”

Buzzfeed broke the story in July and reported several young women were being held in some kind of sex cult by Kelly in Fulton County. Six women  were said to have been brainwashed and forbidden to contact anyone but Kelly unless they had his permission. One of the women, Jocelyn Savage, claimed she was fine after her parents called a press conference confirming the allegations and saying they haven’t been able to talk to their daughter.

Kelly responded to the allegations in a statement to FOX 5 Atlanta via his publicist. “Mr. Robert Kelly is both alarmed and disturbed by the recent revelations attributed to him,” the statement said. “Mr. Kelly unequivocally denies such accusations and will work diligently and forcibly to pursue his accusers and clear his name.”

In a video the 50-year-old singer posted on social media, he called the entire situation a “bunch of crap.”

“It’s your boy Kelz,” he said. “And I just wanted to let all of my fans out there know that despite all of the crap that y’all hearing. I will be coming to the East Coast to do my show. And believe me y’all. It’s a bunch of crap. Aight? I hope to see y’all there. I love y’all.”

With any legal troubles on the back burner, Kelly can turn his attention to his upcoming performance at the Wolf Creek Amphitheater in College Park on August 25. Live Nation, the company managing the tour, has said that the event will still go on as scheduled despite the call for its cancellation.

Quantasi Sharpton Alleges She Slept With Usher, And Did Not Test Positive For Herpes.

#WeGotYourBack #WeGotItCovered #BreakingNews #HipHopDXNews #LosAngeles #California #USA #Usher #STD #Herpes #QuantasiSharpton

Social media has been going crazy after recent allegations that Usher infected 3 individuals (one being a man), with herpes. One plaintiff claims that she had sexual intercourse with the famous singer, but did not contract an STD. There is a lot of money at stake here! could this be a damage control probe orchestrated by his team of advisers?

 

Published on Aug 7, 2017 (Youtube video) FULL PRESS CONFERENCE: Usher’s Herpes Accuser Quantasia Sharpton & Attorney Lisa Bloom Speak on STD Lawsuit

LOS ANGELES, CA – Celebrity lawyer Lisa Bloom held a press conference in Los Angeles on Monday (August 7) to address Usher’s recent flood of lawsuits alleging he had infected multiple people with an STD.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, all three of Usher’s most recent accusers allegedly had sex with the illustrious R&B singer.

Bloom said they participated in the sexual activity with Usher “because Raymond [Usher] was a revered celebrity in their eyes who they believed could be loved and trusted.”

One of the plaintiffs, 21-year-old Quantasia Sharpton, said Usher picked her out of a crowd during a concert on her 19th birthday and later had sex with her, but she admits she did not test positive for herpes.

Bloom explained all three of her clients, including one man identified as John Doe, have suffered severe emotional distress, depression and anxiety. She alleges Usher failed to inform them he was infected with herpes.

Although the lawsuit reportedly doesn’t specify the amount of damages, the plaintiffs are asking for punitive damages as well as a judge’s order requiring Usher to disclose his alleged herpes diagnosis before any further sexual activity.

Usher is already facing another $20 million lawsuit filed by an anonymous woman who claims he infected her with the virus. The controversy started to unravel after leaked court documents showed Usher had paid a woman $1.1 million after allegedly infecting her with the STD.

Bloom has recently represented celebrities such as Blac Chyna and Kathy Griffin.

Louis Farrakhan “I See The Birth Of A New JAY-Z”.

#WeGotYourBack #WeGotItCovered #BreakingNews #HipHopDXNews #USA #EntertainmentNews #LouisFarrakhan #JayZ #4:44 #FamilyFeud

JAY-Z’s critically acclaimed 4:44 album was praised for its themes relating to black economic responsibility. According to a recent video from Minister Louis Farrakhan, Hov is becoming something greater.

“I said, ‘Boy this man to me is becoming a leader in the economic development of our [black] people’,” Farrakhan said after reciting a line from the 4:44 track Feud “Family Feud.”

Farrakhah explains his grandchildren played him the No I.D.-exclusively produced album.

“When I heard it I was sad, so I said, ‘I have to reach out to my brother’ because he was talking about people wanting to kill him or people desiring to harm him,” Farrakhan said in reference to “Kill Jay-Z.” “I saw death too, but I never saw death for this great brother from somebody harming him. So I called him and said to him, ‘Brother, I see death too.’ I see the death of JAY-Z of old and I see the birth of a new JAY-Z.”

From the Nation of Islam leader’s perspective, the messages of 4:44 could mean a change in the right direction.

“In order to do great things, we’ve got to learn the value of pooling our intelligence, our knowledge, our money, to do the thing that will cause us to be honored and respected by civilized people all over the world,” he said. “So I saw JAY-Z’s album as a new beginning for him, and possibly a new beginning for us.”

“Rob & Big” Star Big Black (Christopher Boykin), Passes Away. Cause Of Death Believed To Be A Heart Attack.

#WeGotYourBack #WeGotItCovered #BreakingNews #EntertainmentNews #HipHopDXNews #TMZ #RealityTV #HipHop #BigBlack #Rob&Big  #HeartAttack RobDyrdek

Another tragedy strikes as Christopher “Big Black” Boykin died Tuesday (May 8), TMZ reports. Although the cause of death is unknown, several sources are speculating that the reality television star passed away after suffering a heart attack. He was 45 years old and is survived by his 9-year-old daughter.

Big Black starred alongside pro-skateboarder Rob Dyrdek on the MTV show Rob & Big where they’d go on various adventures. The two had a falling out after the series came to an abrupt end in its third season. In an interview, Dyrdek suggested it was Big Black’s sudden transition from security guard to a famous reality television personality that contributed to the rift. Fortunately, the longtime friends reconnected before his passing.

Dyrdek posted an emotional tribute to Instagram about Big Black, who he calls his “brother.”

Find Out Why Miley Cirus Is Considering Leaving The Hip Hop Music Scene

#WeGotYourBack #WeGotItCovered #BreakingNews #EntertainmentNews #USA #MusicNews #MileyCirus #HipHop

It seems like just yesterday Miley Cyrus was collaborating with Juicy J and getting on remixes with French Montana. Well, don’t expect those days to return. In a recent interview with Billboard, the 24-year-old singer said she was distancing herself from hip-hop—or, at least, the type she feels oversexualizes women.

Answering a question about singer Melanie Safka’s influence on her music, Miley eventually ventured off into the reasons why she’s put some distance between herself and the genre she occasionally dabbled in a few years ago. Like just about everyone else, though, she’s a fan of that new K. Dot.

“But I also love that new Kendrick [Lamar] song [“Humble”]: ‘Show me somethin’ natural like ass with some stretch marks,’” she explained. “I love that because it’s not ‘Come sit on my dick, suck on my cock.’ I can’t listen to that anymore. That’s what pushed me out of the hip-hop scene a little. It was too much ‘Lamborghini, got my Rolex, got a girl on my cock’—I am so not that.”

After discussing the “political” vibe of her forthcoming new album, Miley eventually returned to hip-hop, focusing specifically on the notion that she was ever appropriating Black culture.

“It’s mind-boggling to me that there was even a controversy around me having black dancers. That became a thing, where people said I was taking advantage of Black culture, and with Mike [WiLL Made-It]—what the fuck? That wasn’t true. Those were the dancers I liked!” Miley explained.

Miley said she took criticism from music industry figures when she said she wanted to work with Pharrell Williams, whom she collabed with on the 2014 track “Come Get It Bae.”

“When I met Pharrell [Williams], before ‘Blurred Lines,’ before ‘Happy,’ people wouldn’t take meetings with me because they said, ‘He hasn’t had a hit in 10 years.’ They wanted to put me with the Dr. Luke’s of the world, the Max Martin’s, and put me through the fucking assembly line, and I said, ‘No. This is someone who actually cares about me. This is someone I feel safe with.’ I got completely shut out, and I had to just trust myself. What feels right to me feels right to my fans, because they know some dude in a suit didn’t tell me to do it.”

It’s unclear how people will take Miley distancing herself from certain types of hip-hop, but there’s a good chance it sparks up the conversation about the singer’s past relationship with the genre people guard so fiercely.
