He's still in custody.

I guess women are the only things the "hip, hop, rap" trash can beat up on their own without the help of their "homies" and body guards. What absolute cowardly human filth.

I'm not sure this "we need to get you publicity, why don't you beat up your girlfriend" strategy works.

Then again, bad publicity > no publicity.

Who are these people? None of us out of the Thirty Mile Zone even know who these rappers are or care. Lets get back to covering real celebrities, not people that talk to music, who cares.

Silly white people don't know where your music comes from... This guy wrote Justin Biebers son "baby".. Britney Spears "me against the music" .. Beyonces "all the single ladies" .. And Rihanna's "umbrella" .. Before you say the last two artists are black.. Remember you made him rich because colored folk don't buy songs on iTunes.

IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE? 7 MONTHS LATER AND NOW SHE REPORTS IT. AGAIN, A CASE OF PICKING THE WRONG WOMAN. MOST MEN DO THIS ESPECIALLY RICH MEN IN FAMOUS POSITIONS. WHEN WILL THEY LEARN, PICK A WOMAN FROM A GOOD FAMILY WHO WAS RAISED RIGHT AND KNOWS HOW TO TTREAT A MAN. IF YOU LOOK AT THEM FOR LOOKS AND BODY, YOU WILL ALWAYS PICK A LOSER(WOMAN) AND ANY WOMAN WHO WAITS 7 MONTHS TO CLAIM BEING ABUSED IS UP TO SOMETHING. THIS ISNT AIMED AT WOMAN WHO WERE REALLY HIT BY MEN, ANY MAN WHO HITS A WOMAN SHOULD BE JAILED ASAP BUT, FOR THOSE WHO LIE ON MEN, THEY MAKE IT HARD ON GOOD WOMAN BECAUSE THIS IS WHY MEN DONT TRUST WOMAN. I JUST HOPE SHES NOT LYING BECAUSE ANOTHER BLAC AFRICAN IN JAIL FOR THIS ISNT EXACTLY WHAT OUR SKIN COLOR NEEDS IF THIS INFO ISNT TRUE!!! LGNM
