It was previously reported, Fabolous was arrested for the alleged assault and was indicted on one count of domestic violence with significant bodily injury, two counts of threatening to kill, and one count of possession of a weapon.
This week Fabolous and his longtime girlfriend Emily B. have called it quits.
Sources tell TMZ the 41-year-old rapper and his longtime girlfriend, Emily B, recently called it quits, putting an end to their relationship that resulted in two children. Insiders say Fabolous is now actively dating, but they did not indicate whether he was pursuing anything serious.
News of the split arrives about a week after Fabolous was spotted at a New Jersey restaurant with an unidentified woman. Though the nature of the lunch date is currently unknown, many suspect it wasn’t business-related. We also don’t know what exactly led to Fabolous and Emily’s break-up, as they have yet to publicly confirm their relationship status.
Yesterday it was reported,Cliff Dixon, the ex-boyfriend of Erica Mena and friend of Kevin Durant’s, was shot and killed in Atlanta at the Chamblee strip mall on March 21. Click Here if you missed that.
TMZ gives us an update….
According to TMZ reports, Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … Cliff, a close friend of NBA superstar Kevin Durant, was partying at SL Lounge when an apparent lone gunman opened fire in front of the club around 1 AM Thursday. Cops are investigating but it’s unclear if Dixon was targeted.
He was rushed to Grady Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
According to an incident report, obtained by TMZ, an officer says he was in his patrol unit outside the club when he saw a black male wearing all black with a black skull cap fire at the victim.
The cop says he saw the suspect take off as others gave chase but lost him. It’s unclear how many times Dixon — who earlier Wednesday posted video of himself singing in his car — was shot.
Erica and Cliff dated for about 10 months, but their relationship was undoubtedly rocky. You’ll recall they both got arrested last October after getting into a huge fight. Erica ultimately moved on … gettingengaged to Safaree a few months later.
Cliff had been childhood friends with KD and was reportedly part of the hoops star’s inner circle.
Last month it was reported, Fabolous is set to plead guilty in hopes of getting a deal that will keep him out of prison.
Fabolous just struck a plea deal in his domestic violence case … and he’ll avoid jail time. According to the Bergen County, NJ Court … the rapper will enter a pretrial intervention program. This is generally offered to first-time offenders. Fab’s attorney, Brian Neary, tells TMZ … the charges will be dismissed as long as he completes the program and keeps his nose clean for a year. Neary says Fab must give the court a status update once a month. He also doesn’t need to take part in any therapy or anger management courses.
The rapper reportedly rejected a plea deal was going to take his chances in trial. click Here if you missed that.
Now Bossip reports, Fabolous is set to plead guilty in hopes of getting a deal that will keep him out of prison.
The “So Into You” rapper is on the verge of okaying a plea deal that will see him attending classes instead of going behind bars as a felon, according to court docs.
Fab, 41, who was born John Jackson, appeared in Bergen County Superior Court Jan. 28th with his lawyer Brian Neary to confirm the deal, but Neary asked for more time to iron out the details with the Prosecutor’s Office. Neary has said prosecutors offered a deal where Fab would plea to one count of felony brandishing and threatening a domestic violence victim with scissors, but it was not clear what Fab would plead to under the new plea.
However, a few provisions have been assured: in exchange for pleading guilty to a much lesser charge, Fabolous will not have to serve a day in jail and will be sentenced to “Pre-Trial Intervention” or PTI, which will be a series of domestic violence prevention workshops that will last from six months to a few years. If Fabolous keeps his nose clean, then he’ll have the charges expunged from his criminal record.
