More bad new for Bobby Shmurda.

There was a glimmer of hope that Bobby would finally get the bail he’s been so desperately seeking, but that dream ended when the one person who wanted to shell out the dough was arrested himself. Talk about irony.

Martin Shkreli is a pharmaceutical executive who had many people calling him an evil madman when he inflated the price of HIV treatment from $13.50 per pill to $750 for just one pill! He also just flaunted his wealth by buying the recent one-of-one Once Upon A Time In Shaolin Wu-Tang album for $2 million. But now, instead of spending money on pricey items, he’s spending time behind bars.

Shkreli was arrested Thursday morning in Manhattan for securities fraud. According to Bloomberg, Martin was illegally taking stock from a biotech firm he started, and using it to pay off debts from other business deals.

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.
