Coolio's broke, 50 Cent's smoke, R. Kelly spoke, Blake's trial is one big joke
• Coolio can’t catch a break; the one-time rap phenom was denied entrance to L.A. club One Sunset, pleaded for his $30 parking fee back(he got $10) and was then busted by the LAPD for a 2001 charge of driving on a suspended license, TMZ reports. He had to pay $10k to get out of jail — good thing he got that valet refund.
• A judge has told rapper 50 Cent he can’t get rid of the Long Island property where that $2.4 million house burned down last month, and has to put the insurance money in a trust until he irons things out with the baby mama who was living there, the AP reports. What was the point in having it burned down then — uh, we mean, that’s too bad.
• R. Kelly told the judge in his child pornography trial that he won’t testify in his own defense, the AP reports. Because when it comes to that sex tape, a picture’s already worth a thousand words, right?
• Amy Winehouse’s husband Blake Fielder-Civil offered the pub owner he attacked $400,000 to keep quiet about the attack, the AP reports, although it’s unclear whether he was willing to accept the amount. We wonder how much Coolio would have offered in the same situation.
