“The juice is loose!” Yep, it is official Orenthal James “O.J.” Simpson is once again a free man! The former football phenom turned convict just finished a nine year sentence. As you recall he was granted parole earlier this year.

O.J. Simpson signing release papers

O.J. Simpson is free on parole after serving nine years in prison for a Las Vegas armed robbery, a Nevada prison official said.

“O.J. Simpson is out, he is a free man,” Nevada Department of Corrections spokeswoman Brooke Keast said.

Simpson was freed early Sunday and was picked up by a friend, according to Keast.

The Nevada Board of Parole Commissioners voted unanimously to grant Simpson’s release in July.
Simpson, 70, served nine years of a 33-year sentence for kidnapping and armed robbery after a raid on memorabilia dealers in a Las Vegas Hotel room.

Simpson has maintained that he was trying to recover family mementos and memorabilia taken from him.

After he was granted parole, the Nevada Department of Corrections took extra measures to protect him. Guards moved him to a single cell away from the rest of the prison population.

“The last thing we want is some prisoner trying to make a name for himself by attacking Simpson,” Keast said.

We are glad to see O.J. is free again, but now he needs to stay that way. We have to admit we were all (African-Americans that is) overjoyed when he was acquitted for the murders of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown and her boyfriend, Ron Goldman back in the nineties. At seventy years old, O.J. needs to take it easy and call it a true retirement from the public. We are sure he has some millions tucked away somewhere to keep him comfortable for the rest of his life. What do you guys think of O.J.’s early release? Was justice served? Sound off below!

The loss of any life is a true tragedy, and a time to reflect and honor that person’s absence. Today, we pause to do the same as we are deeply saddened to report R&B diva, Aretha Franklin, has passed at the age of 76.

aretha franklin death

Aretha Franklin, as known as “The Queen of Soul,” due to her gospel music and blues roots, was one of the greatest singers of all time. She is greatly revered by other legendary singers like Patti LaBelle and Gladys Knight; and influenced the sound of careers of singers like Whitney Houston, Lauryn Hill, Mariah Carey, and still countless others.

Ms. Franklin passed earlier today at 9:50 AM from “advanced pancreatic cancer of the neuroendocrine type, which was confirmed by Franklin’s oncologist, Dr. Philip Phillips of Karmanos Cancer Institute in Detroit,” in a statement from her family. Her death comes just three days after it was reported to CNN anchor, Don Lemon, that Aretha was now in hospice care.

A few celebrities have also remembered her in their own way:

 

This is a great loss and a tragedy that millions of people are mourning today. This amazing woman touched so many lives, made so much amazing music, and is now immortalized through her life’s work as one of the greatest singer to have ever graced the face of this Earth. Our thoughts, prayers, well wishes, condolences, and love are with her family and friends during this dark hour.

Below we have posted a few of our favorite songs by Aretha Franklin. We definitely encourage you to share your own, or even comment your memories or experiences with Ms. Franklin. May she now fly high, God Bless.

The last two years of Tyrese’s life feel like one long soap opera that just keeps on dragging out story lines. Just when we thought the R&B would be laying low for awhile more news pops up about his finances. Apparently Tyrese is saying he cannot afford his lifestyle nor to pay his estranged wife, Norma Gibson’s, attorney fees.

via TMZ

Tyrese just filed docs responding to Norma Gibson‘s request for him to pay for her divorce attorney, and they reveal some serious monthly expenses. According to the docs, Tyrese says he’s dropping about nearly $114k each month for his mortgage, child care, groceries, utilities and $10k in child support payments to Norma.

Here’s where that number becomes a problem — Tyrese says in the docs he’s only bringing in $51k on average each month. Doesn’t take a math genius to see he’s in the red. In fact, he says his savings have dwindled from $800k in cash last November to just $130k now.

He’s also blaming Norma for his lack of income these days — saying the negative coverage he got last year when she accused him of domestic violence … has made it hard for him to book movie work.

We are not really sure what to make of Tyrese’s claims. We do know for a fact he gets royalty checks for his past albums and he has made millions of dollars off The Fast & The Furious franchise. If he is broke, and that is a big IF, then where has his money gone? We really hope this custody battle between he and Norma is resolved soon and that Tyrese seeks professional help to get through his recent crises. What do you guys think? Is Tyrese really broke or do you think he is playing the system and avoiding giving Norma those coins? Sound off in the comments’ section below!
