Grammy-nominated LMFAO rapper Sky Blu (real name Skyler Gordy) claims it was former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney that attacked him first during a confrontation on a flight between Vancouver to Los Angeles on Monday.
“He grabbed my shoulder, and I was like boom get off of me,” Sky Blu said in a video posted on TMZ.com. “The man assaulted me. I was protecting myself.”
A spokesman for Mitt Romney said the former Massachusetts governor asked Sky Blu, who was sitting in front of him, to raise his seat back before take off. According to his rep, the rapper responded by taking a swing at Romney. The plane returned to the gate and Sky Blu was escorted off the flight.
Sky Blu, however, says it was Mitt Romney who took the confrontation to a physical level first. Blu claims Romney grabbed him by the shoulder with a “Vulcan grip” after loudly telling him to raise his seat. “I just react – boom – get off me, you know,” Blu said, swinging a fist through the air in the video posted at TMZ. “And I didn’t take it any further than that. I just wanted the man not to touch me; that’s it.”
â€œI have no hard feelings toward him, Sky Blu said in the video. â€œIâ€™m sure heâ€™s a good dude. It was just an unfortunate situation.â€ Mitt Romney declined to press charges in the incident and Sky Blu was released from airport custody and allowed to take a later flight.
This is one of those time you just wish you had video… We’re betting there would be a lot of LMFAO watching that little catfight.
30 Rock star Alec Baldwin is having one hell of a week. First he is suddenly rushed to the hospital on Thursday after a frantic 911 call from his daughter Ireland. Then, after he is released from the hospital, Baldwin decided to take out his family frustrations on a paparazzi photographer outside his apartment building!
An eyewitness told E! News that New York Post photographer Tim Wiencis was all over Alec Baldwin when he came home from the hospital, taunting the 30 Rock star with questions about his daughter Ireland and the strange 911 call that lead to his hospitalization. Ireland reportedly told the 911 emergency operator that her father had threatened to take pills and kill himself during an argument.
At least one source claims Wiencis grabbed Baldwin by the arm while pestering him with pointed questions. Alec Baldwin, apparently at wit’s end, locked his hands on the photographer’s collar and started yelling for someone to call 911.
The NYPD was on scene in minutes to sort things out and reportedly had to physically separate the two combatants. “[Baldwin] lunged for the photographer, grabbed him, and then the police separated the two,” an unidentified source reportedly told E! Online.
No charges have been filed in the incident at this time. As for the whole hospital thing, Baldwin’s rep said the incident stemmed from a total misunderstanding. “Alec was quickly released from the hospital; he’s completely fine and will be at work today,” spokesman Matthew Hiltzik said in a press statement. “If there was a real problem or concern, he wouldn’t have been released from a hospital within an hour.”
John Mayer‘s racist penis jokes during a recent interview with Playboy magazine are sparking outrage from fans and heated criticism from the media. We just think his idiotic comments prove once again that Mayer should keep his mouth shut at all times unless he’s singing.
In a racy interview with Playboy, John Mayer spilled far too much information about his sex life, especially his trysting with plastic girl Jessica Simpson.
“That girl is like crack cocaine to me,” Mayer said. “Sexually it was crazy. That’s all I’ll say. It was like napalm, sexual napalm. Did you ever say, ‘I want to quit my life and just f—ing snort you? If you charged me $10,000 to f–k you, I would start selling all my s–t just to keep f—ing you.'”
If that weren’t enough to make you want to reach for the eye bleach, Mayer went on to talk about how his penis is racist when asked if he’s ever dated a black woman. “My dick is sort of like a white supremacist,” Mayer said. “I’ve got a Benetton heart and a f—in David Duke cock. I’m going to start dating separately from my dick.”
Even though his dick apparently shudders at the thought of getting it on with non-Caucasian women, Mayer apparently thinks the feeling is not mutual.
“I am a veryâ€¦I’m just very. V-E-R-Y,” Mayer said. “And if you can’t handle very, then I’m a douche bag. But I think the world needs a little very. That’s why black people love me.”
Not only do we not need to hear that John Mayer would happily pay Jessica Simpson to be his prostitute, we really don’t need to know his penis is a racist (which, being attached to your body, pretty much says you are too John). Who the hell says this kind of shit and doesn’t know he sounds like the world’s biggest asshat? Seriously, John Mayer needs to park the crazy juice and zip it before he ends up being a bigger joke than Mel Gibson.
Former teen heartthrob Leif Garrett was arrested in Los Angeles on Monday for drug possession at a downtown Metrolink station. Garrett has been charged with possession of a controlled substance and is scheduled to appear in court on Feb. 24.
Garrett was taken into custody by police on Monday and held in jail until his release Wednesday morning. Police did not release details on what drug or drugs Garrett was reportedly in possession of at the time of his arrest.
Garrett was previously arrested in 2006 after he was caught riding the subway without a ticket. The former teen star was found with heroin and Quaaludes on his person during that arrest. He was sentenced to attend drug rehab, but failed to complete the program. Garrett was re-sentenced to serve 90 days in jail, with three years probation.
We’re thinking this time around, the court is not going to be so forgiving…
Actor Rip Torn was arrested Saturday after police allegedly found the 78-year-old drunk and armed with a loaded gun inside a bank. Rip Torn reportedly broke into the bank in Salisbury, Connecticut through a window and allegedly believed he was actually inside his own house.
Oscar-nominated and Emmy-winning actor Rip Torn was reportedly found inside the Litchfield Bankcorp building with a loaded gun and appeared “highly intoxicated.” According to police reports, Torn was found lying on the floor of the bank in a confused and disoriented state. The actor reportedly did not know he was inside a bank and thought he was in his own home.
Rip Torn has previously been arrested several times for driving while intoxicated. Torn was nominated for an Oscar for Cross Creek in 1983 and won an Emmy Award in 1992 for The Larry Sanders Show. The Men in Black star most recently appeared on several episodes of 30 Rock.
Torn is scheduled to appear in court Monday on charges of carrying a gun while intoxicated, first-degree burglary, criminal trespass and several other charges. He is currently being held in jail on $100,000 bail.
We just hope somebody gets this poor guy some help before he accidently gets himself or someone else killed.
Rielle Hunter is headed to court over an alleged John Edwards sex tape she made with the disgraced presidential hopeful while she was pregnant with his love child.
Rielle Hunter has reportedly obtained a court order demanding former John Edwards aide Andrew Young turn over alleged racy photos and videotapes she says belong to her. The order, according to CBS News, “speaks to video recordings and photographs that depict matters of a private and personal nature.”
Andrew Young talks about the video tapes and photographs in his new book, The Politician. Young says he found a sex tape made by Hunter and Edwards shortly before the January 2008 presidential campaign kicked into full swing.
Andrew Young claims the tape clearly shows John Edwards having a sexual encounter with a woman who is “visibly pregnant” and wearing a ring similar to one Rielle Hunter has been seen wearing.
Young has so far refused to turn over the alleged sex tape and photographs, but is reportedly communicating with police at the Orange County, N.C. Sheriff’s Office regarding the battle with Rielle Hunter over possession of the materials.
Personally, we hope if there is a John Edwards sex tape, it gets burned in a fire before it gets leaked somewhere. Hasn’t Elizabeth Edwards suffered enough? The poor lady really doesn’t need her husband’s naked cheating ass splashed all over the Internet to deal with too. At least she finally officially announced her seperation from the sleazebag. We hope those divorce papers are in the works…

Oddly enough, this was the same county where WWE wrestling stars Chris Jericho and Greg (Hurricane) Helms were arrested Wednesday for a drunken display at a gas station.
