Rick Ross What, Me Worry? Hits Strip Club Before Court

3/24/2017 11:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The night before his big court hearing for allegedly kidnapping his groundskeeper, Rick Ross was being held hostage by a lot of shaking ass at a strip club.

Ross was at Club Platinum in Atlanta Thursday with Gucci Mane shooting the video for "She On My Dick." While Gucci is featured on the track, DJ Khaled, Young Dolph and Gucci's protege, Ralo, were there too and make cameos. 

We're told the shoot took about 5 hours and ended at 1 AM. We know hours later, Ross showed up to court Friday morning in Fayette County, GA to testify.

Ross didn't seem too worried throwing bills in the air the night before. Our source tells The Bawse also let the dancers keep the change.

John Legend Luggage Stolen at JFK

3/24/2017 10:34 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

0324-john-legend-TMZ-03John Legend had a rough landing in NYC when someone at JFK airport stole his luggage with some very expensive items.

John arrived at JFK Thursday when a Delta greeter made a mistake and left his bag on the luggage cart. Someone grabbed the bag while it was left unattended.

We're told the bag contained a pair of Cartier Panther cuff links with clear and green stones, valued at $30k. The clothes inside were valued at $500, and there was a $500 pair of eyeglasses.

It's unclear if the thief knew he was stealing John Legend's suitcase.

Cops were able to use surveillance video to nab the culprit, and John got his bag back.

The police said the thief was John's livery driver, but Legend says that was not the case. We circled back with cops who say the thief was a livery driver who has had multiple problems with the law at JFK.

The story was first reported by the New York Daily News.

Rapper Kevin Gates got a kick in the face himself today, after he got re-arrested as authorities were about to let him out of jail.

Today was the day Kevin would taste freedom again, but as he was being processed out of jail authorities found an outstanding weapons-related warrant, so he went back inside the pokey.

Gates has a hearing set for later today. It's unclear what will happen.

EXCLUSIVE

Miguel isn't batting an eyelash at a woman's claim that he forcefully exposed her breast -- saying it's nothing more than a cry for attention ... and not worth his time.

We got the singer Thursday at LAX, where our camera guy asks what his take is on a University of New Mexico student taking to IG and publicly accusing him of sexual assault.

Watch -- Miguel chalks it up to the times and people's thirst for the spotlight. It's interesting though ... he brushes off the allegation without an outright denial.

EXCLUSIVE

0323-boston-band-member-sib-GETTY-01Sib Hashian -- the drummer for the rock group Boston -- died after collapsing onstage Wednesday night ... TMZ has learned.

Sib's son, Adam, tells us the drummer was on the Legends of Rock Cruise and was midset when he suddenly collapsed. A witness says CPR was performed and a defibrillator was used but to no avail.

The drummer -- who donned an EPIC afro in the early days of his stellar career -- was famously part of Boston's self-titled album, which featured the mega-hit "More Than a Feeling."
