Kevin Hart was arrested early Sunday morning (April 14th) for suspicion of DUI. According to E! Online, officers spotted Kevin driving erratically and speeding. They also reported witness him almost colliding with a gas tanker truck. He was pulled over after failing a field sobriety test and was arrested. Kevin was taken to the Van Nuys jail on a $5,000 bond.
After being released, he took to Twitter to vent. He wrote, "I'm officially a thug, I spent 6hrs in jail last night...I got pulled over 3blocks from my house by a d*ck head cop. This cop was the worst, he knew who I was & wanted to make a example out of me...."
He continued, "I did 6,000 push ups & 13,000 sit ups while I was in the pin....shout out to my celly 'Mark' we exchanged war stories LMFAO...When the cop asked me to take the sobriety test I said "WHY WASTE OUR TIME...I'M DRUNK MAN" ..... #TrueStory"
He then added, "On some real sh*t....drinking & driving is not a game or a laughing matter. People have lost lives because of stupid s**t this! This is a wake up call for me, I have to be smarter & last night I wasn't....everything happens for a reason...."
DMX was not too happy about his appearance on Iyanla, Fix My Life this past weekend -- saying that Iyanla didn't fix his life, she actually made it worse. According to Allhiphop, a rep said, "DMX agreed to be a guest on 'Iyanla: Fix My Life' with the understanding that she would be helping his relationships with his 10 children. When he arrived for the taping, most of the content was focused on his struggles with drugs and poor parenting. Iyanla did not 'fix' DMX's life just made his image worse, and does not have DMX's personal written consent to use the footage."
The rep added, "What the team does want DMX's fans to know is that he is working on a new album that will include Swizz Beatz and we hope to also work with Timbaland, Dr. Dre, and Kanye West. Another announcement is his upcoming film 'Blame It On The Hustle' Mekhi Phifer and Ving Rhames."
DMX'S SON CONFRONTS HIM
On the 90 minute premiere episode, DMX asked Iyanla to help him to deal with wanting to be with multiple women -- which Iyanla said was a symptom of deeper issues that he had in his life, like abandonment issues, drug abuse, etc. Iyanla also spoke to X's estranged wife Tashera and his 20-year-old son Xavier, who confronted X about his issues with him.
DRAKE TALKS CHRIS BROWN
Drake has finally addressed his issues with Chris Brown. In an interview with the East Village "Keep It Thoro"radio show, when asked about his beef with Chris Brown, he said, "For any media outlet that listens to this interview, don't ask me sh*t about that man when I come up there. Leave that man alone and stop preying on his insecurities man. His insecurities are the fact that I make better music than him, that I'm more popping than him, and that at one point in life ,the woman that he loves fell into my lap and I did what a real n*gga would do and treated her with respect. So she's not out there talking down on me."
He continued, "All of those things combined creates a n-gga that comes up to your radio station and is just gonna do dumb sh*t. But it shouldn't be about tearing that man down, it shouldn't be about wanting to see me and him tear each other down. We have an issue and it's either gonna drag out, or maybe in ten years we'll laugh about it over drinks, but let us solve that sh*t. It's not me and Kendrick [Lamar], it's not me and Hov, you're not gonna get anything out of it. I don't wanna hear that man rap, you know what I'm saying? Nobody wants to hear me rap against him, you're not even going to get anything out of it. I just urge media to leave that sh*t alone."
He continued, "That's part of the reason why I don't go up to radio. Sit up there and talk, talk, talk, I don't wanna talk. People talk themselves into a mess. Playing my beat when he comes up there and try to get him to rap, c'mon man! That sh*t is like terrible. I feel for him too. Every interview he does, they talk about me. It is what it is. I'm focused on this album and everything else that's going on. I'm not thinking about that man...or that girl."
Gucci Mane was reportedly arrested -- just one day after being released from jail. According to TMZ, the rapper was re-arrested on Saturday (April 13th) for violating his probation. Before that he was arrested on March 26th for allegedly assaulting a man with a bottle at an Atlanta nightclub. A judge initially denied Gucci's bail, but it later set for $75,000.
Law enforcement sources say that the probation violation is unrelated to Gucci's recent assault arrest.

Rapper Trina and America's Next Top Model star Toccarra have both responded to A$AP Rocky's recent comments about red lipstick not looking good on dark skinned women. Tocarra told TMZ, "His comments show he has self-hate. Doesn't he love himself? How do you make a comment like that when you're brown yourself?"

Reebok has dropped Rick Ross due to his controversial lyrics on the song "U.O.E.N.O." On the song, Ross rapped, "Put Molly [Ecstasy] all in the champagne. She ain't even know it. I took her home and I enjoy that. She ain't even know it." Reebok told TMZ in a statement, "Reebok holds our partners to a high standard, and we expect them to live up to the values of our brand. Unfortunately, Rick Ross has failed to do so."
Reebok continued, "While we do not believe that Rick Ross condones sexual assault, we are very disappointed he has yet to display an understanding of the seriousness of this issue or an appropriate level of remorse."
ULTRAVIOLET CO-FOUNDER RESPONDS
UltraViolent -- the organization that held a protest at Reebok's headquarters regarding Ross's lyrics responded to Reebok dropping Ross. Co-founder Nita Chaudhary said in a statement,"We are thrilled to hear that Reebok is joining the fight against rape culture and dropping Rick Ross. This is a huge victory for women, for the 526 survivors of rape who were brave enough to publicly confront rape culture, and for the nearly 100,000 UltraViolet members who have poured their hearts and time into this campaign. This sends a strong message that rapping about drugging and raping an unconscious woman is not only morally wrong, but has real consequences. After Steubenville, Americans expect and demand better. Thank you Reebok for taking a stand."
Nearly 100,000 UltraViolet members signed a petition demanding Reebok drop Ross and more than 10,000 called the company demanding action.

DIDDY'S BABY MAMA SUED
In other news, Diddy's baby mama Kim Porter is being sued by her former nanny Dawn Drago. According to TMZ, Drago has claimed that Kim verbally and violently abused her before firing her. Drago -- who worked for Kim from 2011 to 2012, has claimed that Kim smoked weed and did cocaine in her kids presence. She also claimed that one day she was driving the kids to school and they were covered "in a white powdery substance." She claimed that the kids had gotten into "a bag containing the powder, along with clear capsules, filled with another powdery substance in a bag in the back seat."
When Drago confronted Porter, she claimed that the bag contained "medicine." She also claimed that she was fired for complaining about Kim smoking weed in the house.
From TMZ via Bossip
The woman accusing Kim Porter — Diddy’s baby mama — of being a hard-core druggie who exposed her kids to kush and blow is a fraud who is pissed off because she got the ax … this according to sources close to Kim.
Our sources say … former nanny Dawn Drago is a convicted shoplifter — something she didn’t disclose on her employment application. But more to the point, we’re told she’s extremely bitter because she was fired for falsifying time sheets.
We’re told Kim is adamant … Drago’s drug claims are completely false and the lawsuit is retaliation for getting 86′d.
A rep from the law firm representing Drago tells TMZ, the shoplifting conviction is irrelevant “because she was not working at a shop.” That’s the quote. We don’t understand it either.
One final thing … as far as we can tell, Diddy doesn’t believe the allegation either, because he’s taken no steps to remove the twins from the house.
Diddy has responded to the rumors, saying that he is not dating Kate Upton. He tweeted, "Attn all Media. I don't even know Kate Upton personally! I'm not dating her! What's being reported is not true. END of story!"
A rep for Kate added that Kate and Diddy "barely know each other" and are not dating.
