Fyre Festival Restaurateur Earns More Than She Lost With GoFundMe Page

1548176231_78718526c6e8ba58f23bb88d0e8d67d9.jpg



If you haven’t watch Netflix’s Fyre festival documentary yet, you should do that now, and if you have then you’re well aware of Maryann Rolle. Maryann is the woman who fed most of the stranded festival attendees as well as the 200 plus workers who worked endlessly on the festival grounds before the disappointing event took place. 

In the documentary, Maryann explained how she blew through all of her savings to feed the people and she wasn’t paid back a dime for her daily 24 hours of work. “I pushed myself to the limit catering no less than a 1000 meals per day. Breakfast, lunch and dinner were all prepared and delivered by Exuma Point to Coco Plum Beach and Roker’s Point where the main events were scheduled to take place,” she wrote on her GoFundMe page.

“As I make this plea it’s hard to believe and embarrassing to admit that I was not paid…I was left in a big hole! My life was changed forever, and my credit was ruined by Fyre Fest. My only resource today is to appeal for help.”

The documentary along with the kindness of people’s hearts has given Maryann back her savings and more. The GoFundMe page is now sitting at $163,150 from its goal of $123,000.

As we know, Billy McFarland has been sentenced to six years in prison for his fraudulent Fyre Festival. Check out the trailer below for the series.

Pacquiao Spots Mayweather At Lakers Game, Awkward Handshake Ensues

1manny.jpg


The stars were out at Staples Center last night as the Los Angeles Lakers hosted the defending champion Golden State Warriors. Among those in attendance for the Warriors’ 130-111 victory over the LeBron-less Lakers were Halsey, Alexis Ren, Mahershala Ali and Jack Nicholson, in his usual seat.

Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao were also in the building, and the longtime rivals came face to face when Pacman approached Money May at his courtside seat. As seen in the footage embedded below, the encounter was painfully awkward for all involved, including onlookers. 

Mayweather and Pacquiao have been teasing a rematch for months now, and this is the second time that the two boxers have come face to face at a Clippers game. Coincidence? 

Mayweather, 41, defeated Pacquiao by way of unanimous decision when they first squared off in 2015. Floyd has since retired, then unretired, and most recently stepped in the ring as part of a $9M “exhibition boxing match” against Japanese kickboxing superstar Tenshin Nasukawa, which lasted all of 139 seconds.

Pacquiao, 40, is coming off a decisive victory against Adrien Broner over the weekend.

While there has yet to be an official announcement regarding Mayweather vs Pacquaio 2, Mayweather recently told TMZ Sports, “Before the Mayweather-Pacquiao rematch, I will be back in Tokyo for a huge boxing event. Stay tuned.” With the “huge boxing event” out of the way, and with Floyd and Manny crossing paths multiple times in recent weeks, that announcement could come sooner than later.

Although, is anyone really interested in seeing May-Pac 2?

Ja Rule Finally Apologizes For Fyre Festival Involvement: "I'm Devastated"

1548169191_44ec8017385bfb6c346e6ed1d705b24d.jpg



After the disastrous Fyre Festival made waves in the media, Ja Rule tried to save face. While he did take some responsibility for the horrendous event, the rapper refrained from issues an apologetic statement since the blame could be directed to the individuals who spearheaded the festival. Now that two documentaries about the failed organization and the repercussions it has imposed on many unsuspecting individuals, Ja Rule has offered an official “sorry.”

Ja Rule hopped on Instagram and shared a picture of Maryann Rolle, the owner of a resort in the Bahamas who is now in a precarious financial situation due to the organizers’ negligence. The entertainer offered some kind words. 

“My heart goes out to this lovely lady… MaryAnne Rolle we’ve never met but I’m devastated that something that was meant to be amazing, turn out to be such a disaster and hurt so many ppl… SORRY to anyone who has been negatively effected by the festival… Rule”

A GoFundMe page was created to support the Rolle’s Exuma Point Resort. It garnered over $160K in donations, exceeding the $123K goal. The page describes Rolle’s predicament.

“Back in April 2017 I pushed myself to the limit catering no less than a 1000 meals per day. Breakfast, lunch and dinner were all prepared and delivered by Exuma Point to Coco Plum Beach and Roker’s Point where the main events were scheduled to take place. Organizers would also visit my Exuma Point location to enjoy the prepared meals.

Fyre Fest organizers were also checked into all the rooms at Exuma Point Resort.

As I make this plea it’s hard to believe and embarrassing to admit that I was not paid…I was left in a big hole! My life was changed forever, and my credit was ruined by Fyre Fest. “

R. Kelly’s Alleged Non-Disclosure Agreement For Partners Surfaces

1548140248_4ce56cf169b0dbaef974df1af662d949.jpg



R. Kelly’s alleged non-disclosure agreement for his sexual partners was acquired by The Blastand the specifics are as vague and questionable as you would assume. This entire R. Kelly discussion began after Lifetime aired their docuseries Surviving R. Kelly, which became a nationwide wakeup call and sensation. Collaborators and former friends of Kelly began to turn their backs on him, and his pending criminal investigations are looming close to home. The new discovery of what is alleged to be Kelly’s NDA may only damage the R&B singer’s legacy even further. 

According to The Blast, every page of the NDA  is copyrighted by RSK Enterprises, R. Kelly’s management company. Once signed, the alleged partner becomes “a privileged member of Robert Kelly’s (‘Mr Kelly’) team (the ‘Team’), which may allow me to access privileged and/or confidential and/or proprietary information only available to trusted members of Mr. Kelly related enterprises (the ‘Opportunities’).” There are seven areas that explain the confidential information that cannot be disclosed once signing the NDA. They are:

  1. “The premise and concept of his intellectual property
  2. Mr. Kelly’s business and private life
  3. The business activities of the Company and/or Mr. Kelly
  4. The Company’s employment practices or policies
  5. ‘The activities occurring in connection with the Opportunities’
  6. Ideas, concepts or business plans disclosed by the company
  7. ‘The outcome of the Opportunity'”

The vague references to opportunity, activities occurring in conjunction with them, and a mysterious outcome all sound suspicious. The new signee is also restricted from talking about any of the confidential information “other team members and/or officers of the Company except where there is a specific reason to know.” Check out the agreement here.

Nick Cannon Says Travis Scott Isn't For The Culture Due To Superbowl & Kylie Jenner

GettyImages-963419126.jpg


Travis Scott’s decision to perform during the Superbowl Halftime show is really shaking up the hip-hop world. Last year, Trav was heralded as the man on top of the game. Astroworld was a triumph, and one of the biggest albums of the year. Just a few months later, the same people that praised him are giving him the awkward eye for heading to Atlanta to perform for the NFL spectacle. Nick Cannon, who is never shy about discussing his opinions on the culture, recently sat down with TMZ‘s Raquel Harper. Cannon claims that Big Boi is cool to represent his city, since the Outkast vet is also slated to join Maroon 5 and Trav. He describes it as Big Boi having “cultural equity,” proving throughout his career that he stands for Black culture. On the other hand, Cannon says Trav doesn’t get the same equity.

“I’m team Kaepernick all day,” begins Cannon. “I call it cultural equity. We not mad at Big Boi… he’s for the people. But someone like a Travis Scott, he gotta walk more gingerly. It’s more about truly having integrity. To who you are in your music, and your art form. The people you choose to interact with. The people you choose to procreate with… That decision wasn’t for the culture.” The sly remark makes Raq call Cannon out for dating Caucasian women as well, to which he ecstatically admits that he means no harm and that he loves White women.

Blac Chyna Insists Baby Dream Won't Meet Rob Kardashian's New Girl Alexis Skyy

1548152801_cdc98e578402fe1d3d95e8678912feb5.jpg



The contention between Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna continues on. The former lovers split up but are connected through their child Dream Kardashian. Baby Dream may be too young to understand the drama surrounding her parents, but the way it’s been going, this feud will carry on for years. As we reported, Blac Chyna got into an altercation with Rob’s new girl, Alexis Skyy. Their past interactions were under scrutiny by Chyna, who may believe the two hooked up while she was still with Rob. Now, according to TMZsources close to Chyna are claiming that she believes Rob is only dating Skyy to get under her skin. It may be working. The sources also say that Chyna thinks Skyy is just clout chasing. 

Chyna and Rob entered into a court agreement that states neither one can introduce their significant other to baby Dream until after the first six months of an official relationship. Apparently, Chyna isn’t worried because she thinks Rob and Skyy won’t last that long. The 6-month term is becoming more common in custody cases, since the internet has made dating a much more casual process. If Rob and Skyy do stick it out for most of 2019 though, expect Chyna to be displeased with Dream meeting her nemesis.

Tupac Pornographic Drawing Auctioned Off For $21K

1548147309_89c3ac6c62893d78bfb699521589a555.jpg



Owning a piece of hip-hop history is priceless. Although the artists we love and revere may be amazing within their fields, it is always amazing to watch them experiment elsewhere. For example, Eminem’s ability to draw is on a professional level, and Diddy was a delight to watch in A Raisin in the Sun. Tupac also had another creative outlet, opting to use his drawing skills to vent his emotions when music wasn’t an option. He had one piece of NSFW artwork that went up for auction recently.

Tupac’s NSFW artwork was sold for a nice bag of money. The backstory for the picture is very interesting. As revealed by Steiner Auctions, the work was done while ‘Pac was locked up at Clinton Correctional Facility in 1995 in Dannamora, NY. Addressed to his girl Desiree Smith, the artwork features a handwritten letter. The picture itself depicts ‘Pac having sex with Smith, and can be viewed here. If you can look past the pure erotic nature of the image, the artwork itself is very impressive. Now, TMZ is reporting that the NSFW picture was sold for $20 grand. The picture earned ten bids during the auction, finally selling for $21,155.75.The owner is a wealthy gentleman in his Golden Years.

Ezekiel Elliott Hits Vegas With Teammates To Get Over Playoff Loss

1548145326_bcc933d3479ea77cc7c4268ecc7f2fb1.jpg



The Los Angeles Rams beat the Dallas Cowboys in the playoffs this year, and now the former St. Louis team is heading to the Superbowl. Their win against the New Orleans Saints was controversial this past weekend, but the Cowboys probably weren’t watching. TMZ Sports caught up with Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott in Vegas late last week, and he was accompanied by a few of his teammates. Vegas is a great place to forget about the rest of the world, and indulge in the madness. 

The plan was to gamble away the memory of the playoff loss, and Elliott was joined by Sean Lee, Connor Williams, and other Dallas players. The crew hit Aria’s casino on Saturday, and apparently, Elliott was throwing down $500 per roll. The players had their own private section to blow dough, but TMZ reports that no big winnings were made that night. Looks like the Cowboys are out of luck during this time of the year. Elliott is nearing the end of his $24 million rookie contract, and will undoubtedly make a killing on his next signing. Todd Gurley signed a $60 million extension with the Rams, and Elliott’s agents will be pushing to get him just as much, if not more.

Blac Chyna Visited By Police For A 2nd Time To Supervise Dispute

GettyImages-1020286628.jpg


Blac Chyna just got her second visit from the LAPD in just as many days. As we reported, the police originally stopped by Chyna’s home on Sunday evening (January 20) after an anonymous caller said that she was drunk to the point of utter intoxication and could not watch her child, Dream Kardashian. When police arrived, all was well. Dream was safe, Chyna was not intoxicated, and a nanny was home regardless to help care for the child. Allegedly, Chyna was in an argument with members of her team, which may be the catalyst for the anonymous call. Now, TMZ is reporting that the LAPD visited Chyna’s home once more on Monday (January 21) due to another dispute.

This time, the police were in attendance to oversee a potentially violent situation. Chyna and her make-up artist allegedly got into a monstrous fight this past weekend, ending what used to be a close friendship and business partnership. During the heated argument, the make-up artist left Chyna’s house either in anger or fear. In the moment, she forgot to grab her belongings. Police returned to Chyna’s residence with the make-up artist to help her retrieve mascara, eyeliner, and other work items she left after the fight.
