Joel Osteen Talks Linking Up With Kanye & Their Yankee Stadium Show

Recently two names we never thought would associate with each other were on stage praising the lord, those names would be Joel Osteen & Kanye West. The act of these two being around each other threw off everyone from fans of both to haters of both. One thing everyone saw was the potential for financial earnings and that the outcome would be more activities between the two regardless of their chemistry together. Recently Kanye brought his massive Sunday Service choir to Joel Osteen’s Houston Megachurch. Yes, the same church that was famously dragged to smithereens for rejecting hurricane victims but then invited them in and passed the collection plate around.

Ever since this holy finesse started we all wondered how in the world these two linked up and what are they really getting to. Joel Osteen was on “Good Morning America” to promote his book and broke down how the two crossed paths. It’s also worth mentioning the book is advertised as including Kanye West, so Joel is making sure to cash in on the whole experience. I

In the interview, Joel says Kanye texted him saying he was new to the “religious space” so Joel extended his hand. He also discusses their plans for 2020 and reportedly 2021, where the two will reportedly tour together and perform at massive arenas. Their first show will see the two headline Yankee Stadium and hope to fill 50k seats. We already know the shows will not be free so you can already see the jig from here.

Hopefully, both are doing it for the right reasons, because it doesn’t matter what we think they’ll have to answer one day and not to any of us.

Stupid Criminals: Car Thief Flees Into House, House Catches Fire While He’s Still Inside

Car Thief Flees Into House, House Catches Fire While He’s Still Inside

Los Angeles criminals have a history of not being the brightest when LAPD is closing in on them. LAPD has several crime units with a specific task and several departments just to assist them and yesterday a car theft suspect learned this the hard way. According to ABC 7 News, the suspect has a lot of burns to go with his lesson.

A family in San Jose is now without a home, and a suspect is badly burned.

According to the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office, around 4 p.m. on Monday, members of the Santa Clara County Regional Auto Theft Taskforce (RATTF) team spotted a stolen vehicle near Lewis Road and Senter Road in San Jose.

The RATTF team attempted to stop the suspect, identified as 29-year-old Raul Anthony Rodriguez, as he left the vehicle and took off on foot. Taskforce members quickly set a perimeter around the area. After 20 minutes, task force members learned Rodriguez broke into a nearby home on Santee River Court and refused to come out.

San Jose Police Department (SJPD) then arrived to help with the barricaded suspect. The Sheriff’s Office reported the homeowner was able to run out of the house without injury.

So this is where the story gets very interesting. After he broke into the house it caught on fire. It sounds like an easy fix since police where already on the scene, but when you think of a possible armed suspect you can’t allow the fire department to come close for their own safety. Obviously, the suspect must have had another plan or some type of escape route in place but all he was stuck with was a house on fire and nowhere else to go but to jail.

As the fire raged on LAPD determined the scene was safe for the fire department and once the fire was almost contained they removed the suspect who had substantial burns and had to be taken to the hospital. With car jacking a routine thing in L.A .the police couldn’t figure out what would make anyone stay in a burning house to avoid a few hours or days in jail. They would later find out the main reason for the suspect staying in the house was a $25,000 warrant.

This has to be a contender for dumbest criminal of 2019.

Eat MOR Chikin?! San Diego Man Sets A Record By Eating Chick-fil-A For 114 Days Straight

Eat MOR Chikin?! San Diego Man Sets A Record By Eating Chick-fil-A For 114 Days Straight

Mark Mendenhall, a native of San Diego, just reached an interesting milestone in life when he set a new record for eating Chick-fil-A for 114 straight days.

According to a report from The New York Post, Mendenhall has become known as “Mayor of Chick-fil-A” by several employees at his local restaurant because of his frequent visits. He set out to accomplish this feat after hearing about a man in Georgia who ate Chick-fil-A for 100 consecutive days, which is when he thought about pushing it further. He originally only planned on reaching 105 days in a row “just to be different,” but actually ended up pushing himself and going a whole 114 days.

Unsurprisingly, Mark was already a fan of Chick-fil-A before he decided to take on this task. He spoke on his love for the restaurant chain, saying, “this habit started about five to six years ago. I loved the atmosphere, I loved how polite the team members were.”

The streak– which, if you’re wondering, obviously excludes Sundays, since the fast-food chain is closed on that day–came along with some interesting challenges, especially when he and his family took a trip to Disneyland. Because he was so dedicated to his craft, Mendenhall made a quick getaway to Chick-fil-A at one point during the day to order and eat his food, later returning to the park when he was finished.

Mark’s wife wasn’t happy with his interruption to the family vacation, which made Mendenhall promise that his streak would come to an end before their next family trip.

“So, my wife promptly planned a vacation to Palm Springs,” he explained. “Far enough away that I wouldn’t drive back but close enough so we didn’t have to fly anywhere.”

During his impressive run of back-to-back Chick-fil-A meals, Mendenhall made sure to include some charitable efforts, like raising $1,000 for the Poway Unified School District Adopt-a-Family program.

As for Mark’s favorite meal? He prefers the original chicken sandwich, fries, and a large Diet Coke.

Wait…What?! 16-Year-Old Karol Sanchez Reportedly Confesses To Staging Her Own Kidnapping

Wait…What?! 16-Year-Old Karol Sanchez Reportedly Confesses To Staging Her Own Kidnapping

16-year-old Karol Sanchez, who was thought to be kidnapped right in front of her mother in The Bronx, reportedly staged the whole thing herself.

According to reports from CBS2, sources close to the situation have admitted that the apparent kidnapping was staged by Karol Sanchez, who allegedly confessed to it after being reunited with her family on Tuesday.

Sanchez was allegedly upset about an upcoming move to South America and wanted to get away from her “overprotective” mother.

New York residents and a people nationwide rallied behind Sanchez and her family, expressing how concerned they were for Karol and her mother, who witnesses say was distraught on Monday night after her daughter was driven away. Sanchez and her family live in upstate New York but were visiting relatives in the Bronx when the whole thing went down.

As we previously reported, surveillance video showed four men snatching the 16-year-old out of her mother’s grasp. Blurry footage of the incident showed the scene in the Melrose section of the Bronx at 11:30 p.m. on Monday, as the group of men pulled up to Sanchez and her mother, grabbed the girl, and pushed the mom to the ground.

Once they became aware of the surveillance video the NYPD put out an Amber Alert and flooded the neighborhood with missing posters.

That is, until 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday, when people everywhere who had been following the story rejoiced to hear that Karol was brought back to safety. But when Sanchez suddenly showed back up at the scene and turned herself into police in The Bronx, stunned people on the street watched in disbelief.

“We was at the pole over there, looking at her picture, and we walked up the block, she was crossing the street to the cop car, and I was like ‘Yo, that’s her right there,’” said witness Tommy Feliciano, according to CBS2. “She was shaken up,” added another witness, Zani Koxha. “She was bending over, grabbing her knees, and discussing with the police. And that’s when they took her into the parking garage for questioning.”

Sanchez ended up being brought to the 40th Precinct stationhouse, which is where she reportedly admitted to staging the whole thing with four accomplices in an attempt to run away from her family.

Now, the NYPD wants to talk to all of the parties involved before deciding who to charge, if anyone.

So Sad: Los Angeles Wedding Crashers Beat Groom To Death During His Own Reception

Groom Gets Murdered At His Own Wedding By Two Uninvited Men

This story is absolutely heartbreaking.

Two brothers are now behind bars on suspicion of murder after they crashed a wedding and beat the groom to death, according to police. The horrific event went down during the reception this past weekend in Chino, California.

According to reports from the LA Times, police responded to reports of a fight at a resident’s home at about 2:30 a.m. on Sunday. When cops arrived, they found two victims with minor injuries, but witnesses told police that there was possibly another victim involved in the fight who was missing.

After searching the neighborhood, officers found Joe Melgoza in a backyard suffering from blunt force trauma to his head. The 30-year-old, who had just gotten married hours earlier, was taken to Chino Valley Medical Center, where he ended up dying.

28-year-old Rony Castaneda Ramirez and 19-year-old Josue Castaneda Ramirez were identified as suspects in the fight and served a search warrant at their home in about 12 hours later, though it’s not clear how authorities linked the two men to the incident.

According to police, the brothers were not invited to the wedding and had no known relationship with the groom whatsoever, but authorities are continuing to investigate what prompted them to show up at the party.

As of now, the Castaneda Ramirez brothers are both being held without bail at the West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga. They are expected to appear in court Tuesday.

So Sad: Charlize Theron Opens Up About The Night Her Mother Shot And Killed Her Father

Charlize Theron Says She’s Not Ashamed To Talk About Her Mother Killing Her Father

Charlize Theron knows childhood trauma all too well.

When the star was only 15-years-old, her father drunkenly shot at both her and her mother–which led to Theron’s mom killing her husband in self-defense. Now, the Bombshell actress is opening up about that fateful night.

“My father was so drunk that he shouldn’t have been able to walk when he came into the house with a gun,” Charlize explained in an interview with NPR. “My mom and I were in my bedroom leaning against the door because he was trying to push through the door. So both of us were leaning against the door from the inside to have him not be able to push through. He took a step back and just shot through the door three times.”

“None of the bullets ever hit us, which is just a miracle,” Theron continued. “But in self-defense, she ended the threat,” the actress said, explaining why no charges were ever brought against her mother, Gerda.

Obviously, such an insane moment left a huge impact on the actress, who emphasized just how many other people share similar stories of family violence. That’s why she decided to open up about the encounter.

“I’m not ashamed to talk about it, because I do think that the more we talk about these things, the more we realize we are not alone in any of it,” she explained. “I think, for me, it’s just always been that this story is about growing up with addicts and what that does to a person.”

She also spoke on how she saw her father before his death, calling him a “very sick man.”

“I only knew him one way, and that was as an alcoholic. It was a pretty hopeless situation. Our family was just kind of stuck in it. And the day-to-day unpredictability of living with an addict is the thing that you sit with and have kind of embedded in your body for the rest of your life, more than just this one event of what happened one night.”

SMH: Two Georgia Teens Arrested In Connection To Weekend Shooting At Cumberland Mall

Two Georgia Teens Arrested In Connection To Weekend Shooting At Cumberland Mall

Two teenagers are under arrest after authorities say they were connected to a mall shooting. Over the weekend panic ensued at Cobb County’s Cumberland mall about 14 miles north of downtown Atlanta after shots rang out in the food court. One man was wounded in the melee.

The Associated Press reports that the Cobb County Police Department used surveillance footage and interviews to identify the suspects as 18-year-old Zaire Dhanoolal and 19-year-old Joweer Ponce, both from Marietta. Dhanoolal was charged with two counts of aggravated assault, while Ponce was charged with reckless conduct and carrying a concealed weapon without a permit.

Both suspects were taken to the Cobb County Adult Detention Center.

The shooting was originally reported as an “active shooter” situation but authorities later said that shots rang out as part of a verbal dispute described as a fight that “got out of control.”

Two other young men have been identified as part of the altercation. 18-year-old Ethan Green was shot in the neck and shoulder area and was taken to the hospital for treatment of “non-life threatening injuries.” The Cobb County Police Department said 21-year-old Anthony Ezell wasn’t injured during the shooting but was considered a victim of aggravated assault because a weapon was pointed at him before Green was shot.

While it’s unfortunate that the incident transpired, at least this time this wasn’t an active shooter situation.

Fan Banned By NBA Files $100 Million Lawsuit Against Russell Westbrook And Jazz

The nerve of these people!

Earlier this year BOSSIP reported on an incident that took place between a racist Utah Jazz fan and then-Thunder baller Russell Westbrook. The fan, Shane Keisel, reportedly told Westbrook to “get down on your knees like you’re used to” which prompted brodie to reply “I’ll f**k up you and your wife”. Shane was subsequently banned from all Utah Jazz games permanently by the NBA.

Today, we report that Shane, like many white men who can’t stomach the thought of being restricted from anywhere much less a majority Black space, is playing the victim like he just got cast in the new Rosewood reboot.

According to The Salt Lake Tribune, Shane and his girlfriend Jennifer Huff are now suing Westbrook AND the Jazz for, wait for it…$100 million! The bogus a$$ lawsuit suggests that Shane was only engaging in “typical” crowd heckling and Westbrook “misheard” the comments that were made toward him. Let Shane tell it, he told Russy to “ice his knees” after the game…

The suit goes on to state that Keisel was defamed when Westbrook characterized his comments as racist which eventually led to him being fired from his job after #0’s fans campaigned on social media against him. Keisel also complains that he can’t go out in public because people harass him and his family. Boo-TF-hoo.

Keisel and Huff want a public apology and significant financial damages, according to the suit. The attorneys are seeking $68 million in damages for Keisel and $32 million for Huff on claims of defamation and infliction of emotional distress.

Let us be the first to tell Shane and his woman that they ain’t gettin’ s#!t. Not a dime. It’s also worth pointing out that although Shane is trying to spin his comment as “typical heckling”, the tweets never lie and screenshots never die…

So, yeah, f**k Shane Keisel and the burning cross he rode in on.

Lil Yachty Addresses Alleged Video Of Him Giving A Beat Down At Rolling Loud [Video]

Lil Yachty has always been known to mind his business and not bother a soul. Everything about his personality is a free spirit, fun-loving, babyface rapper. A rapper who doesn’t smoke, drink or talk crazy at all. There was his arrest in college for credit card scamming but he’s from Atlanta where you have to know how to credit card scam to graduate. It happens, besides that, you really can’t find any evidence online he’s ever bothered a soul. Usually when someone has the spirit and image Yachty has there is always that one person who just has to try him. Usually you see the person that goes against the grain coming a mile away but this time a random stranger decided to get bold with the rapper and it didn’t go the way he thought it would.

This past weekend marked the 2019 Rolling Loud fest held in Los Angeles California. After Yachty’s set, he was heading for the exit when an unidentified attendee of the show walked between his crowd of around 10 people and pushed the rapper. When confronted the man decided to get disrespectful. That’s when Yachty seemingly had enough and hit the man with a left hook and his team jumped in to assist.

After his team jumped in, a video seemingly shows the rapper giving the man a few kicks to remind him ain’t nothing sweet. After the video went viral Yachty went on his Instagram to address the matter. You can hear his side of the story below. Even staying out the way Yachty has landed his second wave of bad press after his bounced check situation with a jeweler. Maybe next time Yachty should let the crew handle it to avoid lawsuits.

Caucasity Audacity: Rochester Weatherman Who Was Fired For Calling MLK “Coon” On-Air Files Lawsuit Against Mayor

Weatherman Fired For Calling MLK Jr. “Coon” Sues City Mayor For Defamation

White folks got some nerve.

You probably don’t remember Jeremy Kappell, but Jeremy was fired from his job as a weatherman for WHEC in Rochester, New York after calling Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. “Martin Luther Coon King Jr.” on live television. Jeremy says it was simply a slip of the tongue, but WHEC wasn’t trying to hear it and gave him the boot back in January after significant public outcry.

One of those in the public who was out-crying was Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren who called for the station to terminate Kappell in no uncertain terms via USAToday:

“It is beyond unacceptable that this occurred. There must be real consequences for the news personality involved and also for the management team that failed to immediately apologize and address the slur,” the statement from Warren and Scott said. “The individual responsible for the slur should no longer be employed at Channel 10.”

Welp, according to the Democrat & Chronicle, Kappell has filed a lawsuit against the mayor claiming that she defamed him in a Facebook post where she accused him of intentionally used a “racial slur” despite his defense to the contrary that it he simply botched MLK’s name. Here’s an explanatory statement he released via his website KappellWeather:

After almost a full year of deliberation the decision was formally made to file lawsuit against Mayor Lovely Warren with regards to her involvement in my termination at News10 WHEC and also the defamation created by her careless public accusations and unlawful demands for me to be fired. As a result, not only have I lost a job and potentially a 20 year career, but my family’s name has been permanently tarnished.

Because of her actions, my family and I have suffered greatly these past many months and unfortunately, she has taken zero responsibility and has shown no willingness to move towards a resolution. She left us with no other option.
