Nine days ago Kanye West went to the hospital.The admission followed a week of bizarre incidents during which the provocative rapper publicly railed against fellow music stars Beyoncé and Jay Z and retroactively endorsed President-elect Donald Trump.
A source familiar with the case said Los Angeles police responded to a medical welfare call about 1:20 p.m. (4:20 p.m. ET). No criminal activity was involved..
The rapper is out of UCLA Medical Center after more than a week of treatment for his mental breakdown.
TMZ has confirmed Kanye is at home with Kim Kardashian and their kids. We’re told he left the hospital under the care of Kim, and his personal physician, Dr. Michael Farzam … who called 911 the day Kanye was admitted.
As we reported … Kanye suffered what people close to him say was a “nervous breakdown,” triggered in large part by the anniversary of his mother’s funeral.
Not sure if I’m buying this information.
Elizabeth landed in some hot water after she demanded $2.5 million from Von Miller over steamy sex tape and the judge blocked her from releasing the tape.
Well… The young lady speaks out in a brief interview with TMZ.
She insists the only profit she wants to make off the video is when she’s in private.
“Well, because I used it to play with myself,” Ruiz told TMZ when asked why she didn’t delete the explicit content filmed in June while they were vacationing in Cancun. She also said she never asked Miller “for a dollar” or the $2.5 million that was being reported. Ruiz said her attorney’s went to Miller’s people to say there was a tape recorded in Cancun. Miller’s lawyers threw out a number and Ruiz’s countered with the $2.5 million.
Now private Fameolous called out both Karen Civil and Nipsey Hussle on the gram.
Wasn’t going to say anything about this because so many ppl who follow us and in the industry kisses this fraud ass bitch @KarenCivil ass but I have to now that she is playing with our money. @mr_camron was right when he said she’s a fake phony bitch! We are the only page/blog/ppl who dont kiss her ass so she is trying to get our page removed. It started months ago but the fake bitch recently tried to be our friends but we dont want to be friends so she filed a DMCA claim against our page last week. Days later our verified badge is removed. In order to get a badge removed you have to personal contact a rep at IG to have it done. With the badge you cant be deleted but without your page is vulnerable so she had them remove it so she can get the page deleted. It’s not coincidence that she and TSR are close friends. Both of them are trying to take us down because we better and dont kiss ass. But she dont know she playing with fire��Her client @nipseyhussle is from the same hood one of our investors are from so now she playing with Rollin 60s money.

Back in 2013, Michael Baisden was kicked off the air and locked out of the studio.
According to the radio host’s Facebook page, he and his staff were locked out of Cumulus Studios apparently because the show and the studio didn’t come up with a contractual agreement.
He stated “just because we couldn’t come to an agreement is no reason to drive the listeners, our affiliates, and our advertisers of only 9 days to say goodbye and show our appreciation.” Click Here if you missed that.
Great news starting Monday January 16th, WRHD-2 The All New Fresh 97.9 Greenville’s R&B and Old School welcomes The Michael Baisden Show to the 3pm-7pm slot M-Fri. Brian “B” Paiz-Brand Manager for Fresh 97.9 commented “We are excited to have Michael Baisden joining Fresh 97.9″. Source
michaelbaisdenliveMichael Baisden Commentary: I’m Coming Back To Radio…Finally!
For the past three years I’ve written two books, two movie scripts, and I had the opportunity to live my dream of mentoring young men.
In September of 2013 a passionate young teacher approached me from Evans High School in Orlando. His name was Jarvis Wheeler. He said he needed help with a group of young men who were in jeopardy of being expelled, and I knew what the result of that would have been. I accepted his invitation and on the first day of class I promised them I would see them through graduation and pay for their college tuition.
I kept my promise for two years, missing only 6 weeks in two years, often making up for those miss dates by coming twice a week. Mr. Wheeler and I teamed up with local churches, mentoring organizations, and education institutions to make sure our boys had the best chance at success. And I’m proud to announce that the vast majority of them graduated and are currently attending college.
Now that I have fulfilled my dream it’s time to get back to work! Radio is my passion. It allowed me to reach over 7 million people in 80 cities across the country to inspire them to live better lives, stand up for social injustice, and live their dreams of starting a business. And of course, we play the best music on the planet!
