Benzino Stops For Seafood After ATL Arrest



Benzino just can’t seem to stay out of trouble. Just several weeks after attempting to get a loaded 9MM through security at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, the rapper was busted for drugs and driving with a suspended license.

TMZ first broke the story, the Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta star was stopped in Atlanta on Wednesday afternoon for not wearing his seat belt. But during the routine traffic stop, police discovered marijuana in the rapper’s silver Maserati. Benzino was also driving with a suspended license.

Raymond Scott, the Boston native’s legal name, was arrested for possession of pot, suspended license and seat belt violation. His bail was set at $2,269.00.

Benzino’s arrest didn’t seem to bother him one bit because what appears to be hours after his arrest, he dined at Atlanta’s popular restaurant, Legal Sea Foods. The rapper posted a photo on Instgram of himself eating a juicy lobster.

Love me some him……#bostonboy #legalseafood,” he captained the photo.

Exclusive: Sorry, Folks, Diddy Did NOT Offer H&M Model A Contract



Last week rumors started circulating that Diddy had offered Liam Mango, the young model featured in the H&M ad a Sean John modeling contract. Unfortunately those reports, as sweet as they sound, aren’t true.

Diddy spoke to reporters backstage before a tapping of his new show The Four  and clarified what really happened.

“I didn’t actually offer a modeling contract to him I told my people to reach out to him so we could use him in the next shoot that we do,” he explained.  “But with that being said, I think that what we’re seeing is just a general insensitivity to how we feel you know. I think that H&M is going to feel the results of that.”

H&M has issued an official apology for featuring Mango on their website in a “Coolest Monkey In The Jungle” hoodie, saying in a statement : “We sincerely apologize for offending people with this image of a printed hooded top. The image has been removed from all online channels and the product will not be for sale in the United States. We believe in diversity and inclusion in all that we do and will be reviewing all our internal policies accordingly to avoid any future issues.”

After photos of the young boy hit the web, folks started speaking out against the retailer calling them racist and insensitive. But one person not feeling that way was Mango’s mother. She posted her thoughts Facebook questioning what all the fuss is about. “I really don’t understand but not coz am choosing not to but because it’s not my way of thinking, sorry.”

She and the boys father Terry Odhiambo have since had a change of heart appearing on ITV on Monday, saying they don’t think that there’s ever an “overreaction when it comes to racism”.

They also said they’ve had to move from their home in Sweden, and haven’t been able to live a normal life since the controversy started.
