Not to be outdone, her daughter Shaniece has a blossoming modeling career and is working on starting her own bikini line, while looking to her mom for advice, which she (sometimes) takes.

Suge Knight Refused to Leave His Cell for Court Today

Marion "Suge" Knight appears for a hearing at the Clara Shortridge Foltz Criminal Justice Center March 9, 2015 in Los Angeles, California

A judge was thisclose to having Marion “Suge” Knight forcibly removed from his jail cell Wednesday after he claimed to be too sick to attend a court hearing in his robbery case.

Los Angeles Superior Court Ronald S. Coen said Knight told deputies he was too ill to leave his downtown LA jail cell. Coen said he didn’t order deputies to forcibly remove him because the Death Row Records co-founder has a hearing in his separate murder case scheduled for Friday.

Instead, the judge delayed Wednesday’s proceedings to coincide with that hearing.

But Coen said he would take a harder line with Knight, who is charged along with comedian Katt Williams with stealing a celebrity photographer’s camera. In the separate case, Knight is accused of running over two men with his pickup truck, killing one and seriously injuring the other.

“No one refuses to come to my court,” Coen told a prosecutor and an attorney for Williams.

Knight’s court appearances have been marked by frequent medical episodes, occasional outbursts and shake-ups to his legal team.

On Wednesday, Coen apologized to Williams’ lawyer Shawn Holley for making her return to court Friday for a scheduling hearing.

“I can’t afford to play any games” with Knight, Coen said.

Knight fired his lawyer in the robbery case at a previous hearing, and has not yet hired a new one. Coen said he would appoint an attorney for Knight if he didn’t have one by Friday.

Knight and Williams have pleaded not guilty to taking the photographer’s camera in Beverly Hills in September, just days after Knight was wounded in a nightclub shooting.

Knight also has pleaded not guilty in the murder case, which was filed after he ran over two men outside a Compton burger stand in January. His attorney has said he was fleeing an ambush. Coen has determined there is enough evidence for Knight to stand trial in the case, but Knight’s attorney Matt Fletcher is scheduled to argue it should be dismissed at Friday’s hearing.

It looks like Khloe Kardashian has moved from one former Laker to another.

According to Us Weekly, the 30-year-old reality star went on a dinner date with NBA veteran-turned-actor Rick Fox, 45, over the holiday weekend. The pair as spotted at Mexican hot spot Casa Vega in L.A.’s Sherman Oaks on Friday (May 22). Multiple witnesses say they arrived late and opted for a table rather than the bar.

“It looked to be a fun date,” said a witness. “She seemed happy.”

Kardashian and Fox reportedly go way back – to when the 6-foot-3 former Laker was dating actress Eliza Dushku. The insider says Kardashian, who dated rapper French Montana after her split from Lamar Odom, has a crush on Fox.

Per Us Weekly:

The pair may have had a few too many at Casa Vega — because Kardashian woke up the following morning utterly hungover from her night out. “Ugh my head…..” she wrote via Instagram on Saturday morning, alongside a photo of herself in oversized sunglasses while clutching her head. “Hangovers are the worst… this flight to Dubai will be utilized well with this long ass nap I’m about to take… I look rough lol.”

After the 15th-seeded Williams lost 7-6 (5), 6-1 to Sloane Stephens on Monday, she blew off the media, instead issuing a short statement to the press.

It was Williams’ second opening defeat in three years at Roland Garros. At 34, the seven-time major champion was the oldest woman in the women’s draw this year in Paris.

It also was the fifth time in the last 13 Grand Slam tournaments she’s entered that Williams was eliminated in the first round.

 

Snoop Dogg Reveals New Attitude Towards Women

snoop-doggSnoop Dogg is in a different frame of mind when it comes to the opposite sex.

In a recent Sky News interview, the rapper attributed his new attitude to Pharrell Williams, who produced Snoop’s latest album “Bush.” The admission came as Snoop defended himself against claims that he promotes misogyny in his music.

According to the entertainer, his attitude towards women has “changed” since his early days.

“What’s changed for me is that I have a family, I have a different perspective and view on life, I have more concern with life,” Snoop Dogg explained to Sky News. “Twenty years ago I didn’t have no responsibilities, I was an ex-gang member who was still affiliated with gangs. I was hard headed and didn’t listen. I had nothing to live for but me.”

As for what specifically has changed, Snoop emphasized, “Definitely my attitude has changed towards women.

“I am more sensitive and more vulnerable writing-wise and accepting a woman for being a beautiful person, as opposed to me saying she is a bitch or whore because that was how I was trained when I first started,” he said. “As I grew I fell in love with my wife and started to love my mother, my grandmother and my daughter. I understood what a woman was and I started to write about and express that.”

Despite his new mind state, Snoop admitted he had no regrets over anything he mentioned about women in his previous material.

“I have no regrets because I didn’t have that in my life [at the start of career], but when I got that in my life, as I bettered myself, I began to write that and started to live a better life…,” he stated. “I’m not disappointed [in former self] because he who doesn’t know it’s his job to learn, to better himself. Once I figured out there was room to grow and learn and to be a better person then I incorporated that in everything I was doing. “I don’t feel like you can be ashamed or mad about not knowing – if you didn’t know, then you didn’t know.”

Evidence of Snoop’s change of heart can be found in the song “So Many Pros,” which he admitted to changing the name from its original title, ‘So Many Hoes’.

As for Pharrell’s influence, Snoop praised the producer for being real enough to point out how things said when was young would not carry over into his current status as an older human being with daughter of his own.

“That’s what I love about [Pharrell] as a friend – he ain’t afraid to challenge me,” Snoop told Pigeons and Planes. “[He] was like, ‘You ain’t 25 no more. You’re 43, you’ve got a daughter’.”
