Corey McClendon Arrested For Young Dolph ShootingAs Young Dolph recovers from that L.A. shooting, more details on the incident are being released. As previously reported Dolph was shot Tuesday in front of Hollywood’s Lowes Hotel. He’s currently listed in critical but stable condition despite erroneous reports that he succumbed to his injuries. Now people are curious about his rap rival Yo Gotti whose been beefing with the fellow Memphis emcee since 2014. Police named Gotti a “person of interest” in the shooting and to make matters worse, one of Gotti’s associates has been charged with the shooting. According to USA Today, Corey McClendon, a friend of Gotti’s and member of his inner circle, is facing a charge of attempted murder for the shooting. McClendon, 43 was arrested and booked early Wednesday and being held on $1 million bail. Police are said to be looking for two other men involved in the shooting.
Back in February Dolph was the target of a shooting in Charlotte, N.C. in which over 100 rounds were fired at his bulletproof vehicle. Yo Gotti’s artist Blac Youngsta turned himself into authorities afterward but maintains his innocence. Gotti has yet to speak on the shooting and is instead promoting his XXL cover. SMH, get well soon Dolph.
Steph Curry Discredits Sports Illustrated For Unity CoverSteph Curry didn’t tread lightly when asked about the cover of this week’s issue of Sports Illustrated, on which Steph himself was photoshopped arm-in-arm with Roger Goodell and LeBron James under the supposed theme of “unity.” Steph Curry spoke on the cover and said he thinks it was “just terrible” and “kind of capitalizing on the hoopla and the media and all that nonsense” around the discussions of protest this weekend.
He added that there are “real people that understand exactly what’s been going on and who’s really been active and vocal and truly making a difference… and if you don’t have Kaepernick front and center on that, then something’s wrong.” The Sports Illustrated cover was immediately met with criticism after it was revealed, prompting executive editor of the mag Steve Cannella to appear in a video in order to to explain his intentions. Kaepernick’s image appears nowhere on the cover of the issue, but Cannella claimed that “in some ways, even though his picture is not there, Colin Kaepernick is there.”
Steph Curry clearly isn’t happy about being a part of this narrative and is outwardly showing his disapproval.
Kim Receives Apology Letter From Paris RobberIt’s been almost a year since Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint for more than $10 million worth of jewelry in her Paris hotel room. According to TMZ, the mastermind behind the robbery has written and sent a letter of apology to Kim’s legal team in France, trying to sympathize with her for the incident that went down. Exerpts from the letter provided by TMZ are as follows: “After observing your emotion and realizing the psychological damages I inflicted … I decided to write to you, not to obtain from you some sort of indulgence.” “I want to come to you as a human being to tell you how much I regret my gesture, how much I have been moved and touched to see you in tears.” “Know that I fully sympathize with the pain you are enduring, your children, your husband, and your close ones.” “I hope that this letter will allow you to forget little by little the trauma that you suffered by my fault.” Aomar Ait Khedache is the alleged architect of the October 2016 heist, apparently the letter was handwritten in French and translated by Kim’s attorneys. Sources tell TMZ Kim found his words to be fake, and thinks Khedache’s only trying to appear remorseful before trial. Further proving that opinion, the letter was allegedly first sent to the judge who forwarded it to Kim’s lawyers.
