Jay Z Chooses Out of Court Settlement of Paternity Suit

jay-z--rymir-satterthwaite-A paternity lawsuit involving Jay Z will apparently be settled out of court.

According to RadarOnline.com, the rap mogul will likely pay a settlement to Rymir Satterthwaite, a son he reportedly fathered 21 years ago.

“Ultimately the case will probably be settled out of court,” Lillie Collie, Satterthwaite’s legal guardian, told Radar.

The settlement concludes Satterthwaite’s grievance with Jay Z., who managed to avoid Satterthwaite’s four-year attempt to unsuccessfully obtain the entertainer’s DNA by giving the court his work address in Manhattan.

As for what he’ll do with the settlement, Radar notes that Satterthwaite will reportedly use the money to pay for medical bills, in addition to his mounting legal fees.

“Nobody wants this to drag out anymore,” Collie said.

Satterthwaite isn’t the first child Jay Z hasn’t acknowledged publicly. The 45-year-old rhymesayer has a 12-year-old son, Isa Jael, who lives with his mother in Trinidad. According to reports Jay Z purchased a mansion for the mother and pays her a monthly stipend to stay out of his and wife Beyoncé’s lives.


Bobbi Kristina Transfered to Rehab Facility, Condition Still the Same


TMZ is reporting that Bobbi Kristina has indeed left Emory University hospital for a rehabilitation facility in Atlanta, however, her condition has not improved.

Bobbi Kristina was transferred to the new facility Thursday after doctors at Emory made one more attempt to slowly remove life support to see if she responds. She did not, the website reported, adding that doctors say she’s in the same non-responsive state she’s been in for weeks.

Bobby Brown and Pat Houston helped carry her belongings from the hospital to the new facility, which is reportedly better suited for long-term care.

Bobbi Kristina’s breathing tube was moved from her throat to her neck a few weeks ago in preparation for the support she will be getting in the new facility.

TMZ says “Bobby remains adamant and faithful his daughter can come out of the coma.”

People close to Angie Stone are telling TMZ that her daughter Diamond’s teeth fell out during their fight because they were already compromised.

Stone admitted to cops she hit Diamond with a metal jewelry stand in self-defense, knocking out her two front teeth in the process. But sources close to Angie tell TMZ the teeth fell out because they’d been rotting long before the fight.

Diamond admits to TMZ that her teeth were rotten but says, “It don’t matter if my teeth were rotten or not … I could have gotten a root canal, but she finished the job.”

Diamond also disputes her mother’s claim she was acting in self-defense, saying the fight started with both women yelling, and Angie grabbed the stand to threaten her. She claims it only got physical when she threatened to call cops, and Angie struck her in the face with the stand.

Diamond admits wrestling her mother to ground at that point, and says her brother had to break up the scrap. Only Angie was arrested and booked for aggravated assault.

Dr. Phil Says Nick Gordon was ‘Volatile’ During Taping


Phil McGraw is speaking out about his “Dr. Phil” episode with Nick Gordon, saying that Bobbi Kristina Brown’s boyfriend was “volatile” and emotionally distraught during the taping…and was clearly not sober.

“He said he had an enormous amount of guilt and pain” regarding Brown, McGraw recounted in an interview with the Associated Press Monday.

The 22-year old daughter of the late Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown is on life support in an Atlanta hospital after being found unresponsive Jan. 31 in a bathtub in her Georgia home.

McGraw said that Gordon entered a rehab facility immediately after the taping last week, which McGraw and the show described as an “intervention.” He said that Gordon was “clearly in an altered state of consciousness. I asked him if he was sober, and he said `No.’”

Gordon felt “it was his job to protect Krissy, as he calls her, and that he obviously had failed,” and he’s distressed over being banned from her bedside, McGraw said.

Gordon’s attorneys have said that Bobby Brown has consistently denied Gordon permission to visit her in the hospital. A lawyer for Brown said that Gordon was offered a potential opportunity if he agreed to certain conditions.

Gordon didn’t discuss what happened to Bobbi Kristina Brown and wasn’t asked about it for the episode airing Wednesday because it would have been inappropriate, McGraw said.

During the taping, Gordon veered between incoherence and sounding “normal,” McGraw said. At one point, he played a Whitney Houston song on his phone and started weeping.

Asked if the chaotic encounter for TV was helpful to Gordon, McGraw replied: “It got him safely tucked away and into rehab.”


Brownstone Singer Charmayne Maxwell: No Foul Play Suspected

The death of Brownstone singer Charmayne “Maxee” Maxwell looks to involve no signs of foul play, according to authorities.

TMZ.com spoke with law enforcement officials who said that authorities combed the scene where the entertainer fell on Friday  evening. Detectives mentioned that all evidence points to Maxwell falling backward at the doorway between the house and the back patio … while holding a wine glass.

TMZ reports that the during Maxwell’s fall, the wine glass she held shattered on the ground behind her head. As a result, shards of glass punctured the back of her neck in two places when she landed. The site further noted that there was an injury to the back of Maxwell’s head and it’s possible she was knocked unconscious.

The findings mark the latest development since Maxwell’s death. According to reports, the vocalist’s husband Carsten Soulshock found her bleeding around 9 p.m. Friday when he came home.

Soulshock as well as other family members told police that there was no history of domestic violence. Meanwhile,  authorities do not suspect foul play. One theory is that Maxwell may have been intoxicated which led to her fall.

At this time, the singer’s body is with the coroner, who will conduct an autopsy and toxicology test to determine how the fall occurred.

On Monday (March 2), Soulshock released the following statement regarding his wife’s death:

“Words can not express how devastated we are at the sudden and tragic loss of our dear Maxee. She was the center of our world as a devoted mother and wife. We miss her so much. We would like to thank everyone who has been there for us and expressed your condolences. They have given us comfort over these incredibly difficult days. We would appreciate privacy during this most difficult time.”


Turns Out the ‘I’m Not Gay No More!’ Guy Wasn’t ‘Delivert’ (Watch)

andrew-I'm-not-gay-no-more-caldwellWhile his claim of being “delivert” and not liking “mens no more” went viral, Andrew Caldwell admits all was not what it looked like the day he came forward at the Church of God in Christ.

In an interview with NBC12, Caldwell mentioned that his experience was serious and not a comedy routine of any sort.

“I was serious,” he told the station. “I did not want to go viral. I did not expect that to go viral. I did not want to get up there and just say anything and look crazy in front of thousands of people.”

Caldwell attracted headlines and attention after a video surfaced of his “gay conversion” experience. In the video, Caldwell is heard saying “I’m not gay no more!” at the Church of God in Christ conference in St. Louis. “I’m delivered! I don’t like mens no more!”

The video of Caldwell’s experience has since gone viral with songs and cartoons created at his expense. In reacting to NBC12’s original online story on the video, Caldwell set the record straight on what really happened.

“And you all spoke about my video,” noted Caldwell. “I said let me reach out to him. Let him get the truth. Let him know what’s really going on in the world. I went up there because I needed prayer that day. I needed so much prayer.”

Regarding what he said about not being gay, Caldwell revealed that he felt pressured by the previous speaker at the Church of God in Christ conference in St. Louis. According to Caldwell, the speaker called gays in the church “sissies” and suggested they should “bleed from their butts.”

In response to Caldwell, the Church of God in Christ issued a formal apology via Bishop Charles E. Blake, Sr.

“As presiding bishop of the Church of God in Christ, I apologize for what seemed to be a harsh, uncompassionate, disrespectful spirit on the part of that speaker,” Blake stated. “I also apologize to Andrew Caldwell. We love all people regardless of their faith or their moral standing.”

Despite the church’s apology, Caldwell was not sold.

“They think that they can preach the homosexuals away in the Church of God in Christ. And you can’t,” he said while confirming that he was not delivered on the spot at the church

“No,” said Caldwell. “That’s not the case…I still have desires.”

“Do you have any regrets about what happened?” we asked Caldwell went on to mention that he does have regrets about what happened at the church as it led to him being attacked in the past week and being called homosexual slurs.

“I do hold regrets. Because my life has been in danger,” he said.
“That video caused a lot to me…mentally and physically,” said Caldwell. “I feel that, if I was delivered, God should deliver me more. But I know it takes a process. But I think it is going a little bit slow. I want God to work on my mannerisms. I want God to stop the switching…talking like a woman.”

All name calling and laughing aside, Caldwell told NBC12 that he sincerely wants to be delivered. Yet he added that he can’t help feeling let down by his entire experience at the Church of God in Christ.

“Continue to pray for me,” said Caldwell. “Because I am going through a lot each and every day.”
