Why Lil Scrappy Is Behind Bars



Rapper Lil Scrappy is behind bars in an Atlanta area jail after refusing to re-submit a fresh urine sample as part of his probation.

Back in March, Scrappy reportedly turned in a urine sample that, according to officials, was cold and possibly tampered with. Authorities asked the Love and Hip-Hop: Atlanta star for another sample, but Scrappy refused.

A warrant was eventually put out for the rapper’s arrest, but it looks like Scrappy took the high road and just turned himself in. The rapper tweeted early Tuesday morning that his main concern with being locked up was leaving his daughter:

“Only thing is I gotta leave my lil one. It hurt so bad when I told her where daddy was going. She was too sad, but she said, ‘Daddy, it’s gone be OK.”

When a fan asked Scrappy how long he might be in jail, the rapper tweeted back, “I don’t know, up to the judge.”

HipHollywood reached out to Scrappy’s camp, and are still waiting on word back.


Reports: Chante Moore Accused Of Financing New Album With Stolen Money



Looks like Chante Moore has got some explaining to do!

The “Chante’s Got A Man” singer is being looped in a messy fraud and racketeering case that essentially led to two men claiming they were defrauded out of $3.6 million.

According to reports, the former “R&B Divas: LA” star knowingly accepted money that was fraudulently obtained by a criminal enterprise and using it to produce her latest album and artificially inflate her sales.

The two men are have filed a lawsuit and claim the defendants used some of their money to buy Moore plane tickets for her musical tour, lavish her with gifts, fund the production of and marketing campaign for her seventh album, “The Rise of the Phoenix,” and even to “pay off her significant personal debt.”

They also claim their money was used to open a hair bar in Georgia, and buy a house.

The plaintiffs say Moore knew the money was obtained illegally and the investments made into her career “were designed in whole or in part to conceal or disguise the nature, the location, the source, the ownership, and the control of the proceeds” of the alleged illegal activity.

It gets even messier though. The two men also claim the money was used to “artificially enhance” her album sales through iTunes purchases. Since they believe their money was used to “directly used to finance the launching of Moore’s latest resurgence effort with her new album, including all advertising and marketing efforts put forth therewith,” they believe they are entitled to any profits from the record.

If you’re wondering what Moore has to say about the situation, she is denying the allegations and wants the case thrown out.

Back in July we caught up with Moore who gushed about her new album and not feeling pressure to stay relevant in the changing music climate.
