HipHollywood has learned that the woman photographed frolicking poolside with Drake on Tuesday was arrested on “endangering the welfare of a child charges” back in 2010.

NewJerseyNewsroom was first to report on the story that Bernice Burgos allegedly struck a 14-year-old girl five years ago.

“Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli announced Wednesday the arrest of Bernice Burgos, 30, of Palisades Park, on endangering the welfare of a child charges.

The arrest came about as a result of an investigation conducted by members of the Bergen County Prosecutors Office Sex Crimes and Child Abuse Unit, under the direction of Chief Steven Cucciniello and the Palisades Park Police Department, under the direction of Captain Benjamin Ramos.

On December 14, 2010, members of the Bergen County Prosecutors Office Sex Crimes and Child Abuse Unit and the Palisades Park Police Department arrested Burgos after learning that she physically struck a fourteen year old female acquaintance. The incident occurred on December 13, 2010 in Palisades Park, N.J.

Burgos was charged with one count of endangering the welfare of a child, a second degree crime.”

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

Published

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.
