Who Shot Boonk Gang? Did He Shoot Himself?

Boonk Gang made headlines yesterday after he posted on Snapchat that he had gotten shot twice.

Boonk posted a photo of himself laying in a hospital bed after getting shot Saturday (Jul. 28). While details about the shooting have been scarce, a number of theories are being passed around online, with most popular one being that he may have shot himself, either accidentally or on purpose (or accidentally on purpose).

Knowing Boonk Gang, him shooting himself is no surprise. Plus, there haven’t been any confirmed news reports of him being shot, which is usually par the course anytime gunfire is exchanged between individuals and someone goes to the hospital.

According to Media Take Out, the rapper/social media personality shot himself in the leg “while recording a video FOR LIVE.” They never specified the platform Boonk was streaming on, and we haven’t seen any videos floating around of him shooting himself, so that’s probably not true. But, there is a strong possibility that he did shoot himself.

Boonk told fans he’s got “street problems” and suggested his gunshot wounds came from an enemy opening fire on him, but an insider at the hospital says his bullet wounds were “self-inflicted.” He was questioned by police, but they left without charging the social media star with anything.

Regardless of how he shot himself, Boonk appears to be fine now. He wrote on Twitter Saturday evening: “N***as get shot everyday, I’m cooling!”

He also posted a Snap earlier today showing him drinking Pedialyte. “Real n***as sip on Pedialyte, nom saying?” he said.

Prior to yesterday’s shooting incident, Boonk posted a number of troubling messages on Twitter, possibly as a cry for help:

Boonk also said on Snapchat that he didn’t know whether he wanted to live or die. “I just want this pain taken away from me,” he said.

And he also posted a bunch of videos showing him crying and clearly not in a good place:

The past 30 days or so have been pretty eventful for Boonk Gang. Nom saying?

He started randomly posting videos of him having sex on his Instagram Stories in late June and by early July was banned from the app. He also went viral last week after a video went viral of him falling and hitting his head on a wall after showing up high as hell to an interview on the No Jumper podcast with Adam 22.

How to Listen to Beyoncé & JAY-Z’s “Everything Is Love” Album Without TIDAL

How do I stream Beyoncé and JAY-Z’s Everything Is Love joint album if I don’t have TIDAL? Long story short: YOU CAN’T! But there are a couple of ways for you to listen to the album without paying for a TIDAL subscription. Read on for the details…

Without warning, Beyoncé and JAY-Z (aka “The Carters”) dropped their long-awaited joint album Everything Is Love exclusively on TIDAL Saturday afternoon (Jun. 16)

Following the release of their solo projects—Beyoncé’s 2016 album Lemonade and JAY-Z’s 2016 album 4:44, the power couple joins forces for a 9-track album featuring songs like “Summer,” “Boss,” “Nice,” “Friends” and their new single “Apeshit” (WATCH THE VIDEO FOR APESHIT HERE!)

The Carters announced the album’s release at the London stop of their critically acclaimed “On The Run II” tour. Just as the couple’s show at London Stadium wrapped Saturday night, the words “ALBUM OUT NOW” were plastered on the huge stage-length screen.

While people are scrambling around and scouring the Internet for ways to listen to the album, the only way you can stream the album is through TIDAL, considering it’s an exclusive release on that platform. But what if you’re not a TIDAL subscriber?

Well, if you lack the TIDAL subscription required to stream Everything Is Love, there’s a legal way to listen to it if you don’t want to sign up for the service. You can purchase the album for $9.99, the same exact price for a monthly TIDAL subscription.

Or, alternatively, if you’re still looking for a way to stream the album without dropping any cash, you can always sign up for a FREE trial of TIDAL using an e-mail address that’s never been used for such a thing.

“But what if I don’t want to listen to the album on TIDAL?” you ask. Well, in the words of the grandpa on the movie “Holes,” THAT’S TOO DAMN BAD!

Beyoncé and JAY-Z own TIDAL, so do you really think they’re going to allow you to use your coins elsewhere? HELL NO!

So, either you create a burner e-mail for a free trial, spend the $9.99/mo to become a TIDAL member, buy the album outright for the same price as a monthly subscription … or just miss out on the whole thing altogether.

Anthony Bourdain’s Girlfriend Asia Argento Was Cheating Before His Suicide?

Anthony Bourdain was found dead in his hotel room in France early Friday morning (Jun. 8) after killing himself.

According to reports, his good friend, chef Eric Ripert, was the one who discovered him. The two were in France shooting for Bourdain’s CNN show Parts Unknown. French authorities have confirmed that Bourdain’s method of suicide was by hanging himself with his bathrobe’s belt.

We know when Anthony Bourdain died, we know how he died, and we know where he died. But one question still remains. Why did he choose to end his own life?

Bourdain was in a relationship with Italian actress Asia Argento at the time of his death. The couple started dating in early 2017 and went public with their romance in September 2017 on the red carpet of the annual Creative Arts Emmys in Los Angeles.

Before dating Argento, Bourdain was married twice. His first marriage, to a woman named Nancy Putkoski, lasted 20 years, between 1985 and 2005. He married again a year later to Ottavia Busia, with whom he had his first and only child, a now 11-year-old daughter named Ariane.

Bourdain and Busia divorced in 2016, just one year before they would celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary, due to his extensive work schedule, which required him to travel at least 250 days out of the year. Coincidentally, that’s the same reason his first marriage didn’t work out.

But his last relationship, with Asia Argento, was different. Because she was an actress, she understood the high demands of Hollywood.

Argento reportedly lives in Vigna Clara, which is north of Rome. She and Bourdain both loved to work, which is something they had in common. Bourdain explained to People, “We both work a lot and we’re both away from home a lot so we’re both circus freaks in the same circus—or different circuses I guess. He continued, “I’m a person who likes being busy, I need a project always. I’m not a person, obviously, who’s happy being idle for too long. I like waking up with things to do. I have a restless, creative mind.”

Bourdain said in a separate interview with People, “This woman likes to work. She is strong, independent, creative, and needs to have an obsession, needs to make things … I think we’re both relieved by the fact that we both respect each other’s work. Nobody’s ever going to say, ‘Oh, but you promised we were going to go to the beach.’ No, you get a gig, that’s it. Work first.”

So a long distance relationship worked between Bourdain and Argento. Yet still, the question remains… why did he kill himself if he and Argento were so happy?

TMZ may have the answer to that question. According to the gossip site, the couple “seemed tight as ever just last week,” however, “something changed within the last few days.”

Asia and Anthony were on a shoot together for Bourdain’s Parts Unknown TV show in Hong Kong that reportedly wrapped about a week ago. Anthony posted shared a photo on Instagram of the crew, including Asia, who was sitting right beside him.

The week before that, the couple were together in Florence, Italy, and still appeared to be happy and romantic.

But, according to TMZ, while Anthony was in France shooting his show, Asia was spotted back in Rome “strolling around with a French reporter named Hugo Clément.”

An Italian photographer apparently snapped photos of Argento and Clément “holding hands and hugging,” TMZ reported, however, the photog pulled the pics off the market right after news of Bourdain’s broke.

It wasn’t clear whether Anthony and Asia had broken up, but if they did, they hadn’t yet made a public announcement. Their last public appearance together was back in April at an event in New York City, TMZ noted.

So, now we’re left with the question: Did Anthony Bourdain kill himself because Asia Argento was cheating on him? Since, as far as we know, he didn’t leave a suicide note, we’ll never know why he committed suicide. However, based on interviews he conducted after his divorce from his first wife, Nancy Putkoski, Bourdain didn’t handle breakups well.

After he and Putkoski split, Bourdain said he coped by self-medicating and behaving “in a completely irresponsible and suicide way.” He told Daily Life in a 2012 interview, “I didn’t value my own life and acted accordingly. I had put myself in a very dark place and behaved recklessly in the not-too-subconscious hope that something terrible would happen. I was doing everything possible—smoking pot, drink-driving—to invite that.” He went on to say that “divorce was just the work thing in the world: it was f**king awful.”

“It wasn’t that it was even a contentious divorce, there was no long, litigious battle; it’s just a terrible thing when a relationship that great ends,” he added.

So, it’s highly possible that if Asia was, in fact, cheating on him, or if they had recently broken up, he made the decision to end his own life, considering that those thoughts had passed through his mind before. But who knows what was going through Anthony Bourdain’s mind in his final moments, other than Bourdain himself.

For what it’s worth, Asia posted and deleted a bizarre Instagram story before Bourdain’s death was reported.

About three hours before the news broke of Anthony Bourdain’s apparent suicide, Argento shared a cryptic message to her Instagram story. The story included a photo of herself wearing a ripped t-shirt that read “F**K EVERYONE.” She captioned the post, “You know who you are.”

After deleting the story, she posted a note to Instagram and Twitter calling Bourdain a “brilliant, fearless spirit” who “touched and inspired so many.”

Anthony Bourdain was 61.

Did Reginae Carter & Her Boyfriend YFN Lucci Get Arrested in Knoxville, Tennessee?

It looks like Reginae Carter and her older boyfriend YFN Lucci landed themselves in some trouble with police Friday night (Jun 1) in Knoxville, Tennessee.

Reginae, the 19-year-old daughter of Toya Wright and Grammy-winning rapper Lil Wayne, had social media concerned as reports emerged that she and YFN Lucci, a 27-year-old rapper from Atlanta, were arrested.

According to some reports, Reginae and Lucci were both detained and taken into police custody after a fight and a shooting at an after-hours spot (i.e. liquor house).

Video footage showing the couple’s run-in with Knoxville police went viral on the internet, however, Reginae assured fans via her Instagram story that she was NOT arrested. “I’m okay guys. I am not in jail btw,” she wrote.

Lucci himself wrote on Twitter, “EVERYTHING IS OK.”

An eyewitness told Urban Islandz that the pair was pulled over and placed in handcuffs. They were eventually let go without any charges or an official arrest. “They weren’t under arrest, but for some reason the cops felt it necessary to detain them at least for a few hours,” the witness said.

Commenters on the live video, which was posted on Facebook, seemed to be disappointed with Reginae, who is a straight-A student at Spelman College in Atlanta.

One commenter told Reginae to be careful, saying, “Hood boyfriends are the best they said. When are these young girls gonna learn? This is Not how college goes….. I pray its a misunderstanding no one needs or deserve jail. This isn’t gonna end well this reckless lifestyle young free and in love…Don’t we all know this stage????”

Another commenter surprised to see the teen in a messy situation involving police wrote, “This girl never been in any kind of trouble her whole life and now all of a sudden. The thug life ain’t for you sis. What happens when you wanna be in that life so bad. Smart decisions Lil mama. That dad you always bragging about worked so hard so you never even had to step foot in the hood. Lucci wrong af forever having her around a crowd she shouldn’t be around anyway. So quick to be down and try to end up with the pics in the shade room.When you thought you were ready to be a ride or die chick.”

Reginae and YFN have been dating for a few months now. The couple sparked dating rumors back in February and have been spotted out together on several occasions, including on Memorial Day Weekend when they were spotted on a boat with some friends in Miami (above). Some commenters pointed out how “questionable” the photo looked.

Reginae and Lucci have also posted numerous photos of them “boo’d up” on their respective Instagram pages.

Is This Reality Star Faking Her Pregnancy for a Storyline?

The word on the curb is that a famous reality star of a very popular reality series is being accused of faking her pregnancy to solidify her spot on the show’s upcoming season.

Guess you gotta secure that bag by any means possible, right?

From Blind Gossip:

This reality star did not think she was going to get picked up for another season of her reality show, so she decided to add some drama… by getting pregnant!

Only… she’s not actually pregnant.

“There might be a baby somewhere, but it sure wasn’t in her uterus a few weeks ago!”

Wasn’t this same reality star also involved in a fake engagement or a fake marriage at some point? Guess we really shouldn’t be too surprised if this pregnancy turns out to be fake as well. Her repeated staging of life events is disturbing, though. We don’t know what’s twirling around in that girl’s head!

By the way, this is not about Khloe with a K, who is a faker on a whole different level. Perhaps Khloe can send the other reality star one of her “home-baked pies” as a gift of congratulations?

Wayment. Did “Dro” and “Tasha” From “Insecure” Just Have a Baby Together?!

Earlier this week, the internet whipped out their Sherlock Holmes magnifying glasses to try and figure out the answer to one burning question: Did “Dro” and “Tasha” from Insecure Just have a baby together?!

Facts: Dominique Perry, who plays Tasha on the hit HBO series Insecure, just gave birth to a healthy, beautiful baby girl. She posted a photo of her daughter, Zen, on Instagram.

Also facts: Fellow Insecure actor Sarunas J. Jackson, who plays Dro on the series, posted another black-and-white photo of a healthy, beautiful baby girl on Instagram Tuesday morning with the caption “NWTS,” referencing Drake’s 2013 album Nothing Was the Same. Social media sleuths immediately noticed the similarities of the photos, despite them being from different angles.

Even more facts: Dominique deleted her photo, essentially confirming that, yup, that’s Sarunas’ baby.

So now that those facts are out of the way, let’s get into the drama.

While fans of the show sent their congratulations to Perry and Jackson on social media, Jackson’s girlfriend, Kaylen Zahara, wrote on social media that she found out about her boyfriend’s new baby online with the rest of world. She posted a video on Instagram talking about how she’s “dodging f**kboy after f**kboy” and even made an “insecure” reference (LOL).

“Ladies, listen to your intuition! These dudes will be in your crib, eating your food & laying up with you, taking you on dates, etc but got kids on the way without you knowing,” she wrote. “These insecure men can never keep it 100. Congrats tho.”

A few hours later, Zahara followed that posts up by saying that she and Jackson were “great friends” and had “cleared the air.”

“I found out with the rest of the world so I ran with my feelings,” she wrote in a response to a commenter. “Sarunas and I are great friends and we’ve cleared the air! No foul play or games were played. He’s going to be an amazing father & we are going to continue to be close friends!”

So, despite their lack of confirmation, it looks like Dominique Perry (“Tasha”) and Sarunas J. Jackson (“Dro”) definitely had a baby together. Meanwhile, The Shade Room says they’ve confirmed “from a reliable source” that Jackson is the father of Perry’s daughter Zen.

So, there you have it, folks! Insecure’s TV drama done spilled on over into real life.

Was Tommie Lee Fired From Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Over Her Alcoholism?

Tommie showed her whole entire A-S-S on last night’s episode of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, leaving many fans of the show wondering whether or not she was fired.

Viewers watched as Tommie’s alcoholism reared its ugly head and she had an insane meltdown in one of the most explosive moments in the show’s entire 6-year history. I mean, we’ve seen Joseline go crazy, but this was a whole ‘nother level of crazy that made Joseline’s antics look tame compared to Tommie’s

It all started when Rasheeda wanted her girlfriends to fly out with her to Houston for the grand opening of her new Pressed store. But this won’t be your ordinary trip, Rasheeda says, because she plans to take the ladies (and some of the men) to a dude ranch while they’re there. How fun!

Spice made it a point to mention that she’s down for the turn-up, as long as Rasheeda doesn’t invite Tommie’s pig—a direct shot at Tommie for being “TREE HOWAS LATE” to their video shoot, which caused her to have to cancel their launch party due to Tommie’s negligence. This obviously didn’t go over well with Tommie, who was drunk as a skunk by then, and she didn’t appreciate Spice trying her (and her pig) like that.

When Spice tries to explain to Tommie why she’s upset with her, Tommie starts laughing in her face, which pisses Spice off and creates one helluva awkward moment for everyone one set. Then Tommie herself gets pissed off when a producer in the background tires to get her to change the subject why telling her to “tell them about Scrapp.” And from then on, Tommie went into full meltdown mode and went all the way AWF on the show’s production.

Tommie’s bizarre behavior culminated when she started yelling out insults that made absolutely zero sense, but you could hear her saying she was going to “shut y’all whole house down because you know I know where y’all live at” and how she’s “gotta go to jail tonight.” (Sidenote: Tommie did, in fact, go to jail that night after turning herself in for that mall employee beatdown situation).

At this point, everyone’s looking at Tommie like…

After security finally escorts her out, viewers were treated to on-screen text that read: “As Tommie was escorted out, she became increasingly agitated. She tried to return to confront Spice, and was stopped by security.” They weren’t able to capture video footage, but they did get the audio as she tried to rush back on set to “confront” Spice. The whole thing was just a big ol’ mess, and producers had basically wiped their hands of Tommie at this point.

Later, after everyone gets to Houston, the episode concludes with LHHATL executive producer Stephanie Gayle announcing to the cast that production has made the decision to no longer film with Tommie due to her erratic behavior fueled by her alcohol abuse. Without going into too much detail, Stephanie explained that Tommie had been breaking a lot of the rules, including attacking security, and production generally just wants to help her… off-camera, of course.

And with that, folks are now wondering about Tommie’s future on the show. Was she fired or is she just taking a temporary leave of absence? Based on Stephanie’s explanation, it doesn’t sound like she was given the boot COMPLETELY, but it does seem like she’s treading on thin ice, meaning that if she continues to act this way, she’ll be out of a job.

Hopefully, Tommie can get her sh*t together before she has to “part ways” with the show, a la Joseline Hernandez.

As you all may or may not know, a judge has ordered Tommie to wear an alcohol monitoring device in lieu of going to jail. According to TMZ, the device—which costs about $500 from Tommie’s pockets—detects whether or not any alcohol is in Tommie’s system through her sweat every 30 minutes.

A number of photos Tommie recently posted on Instagram shows that she’s wearing the device right now, so, fingers crossed, she’s learning how to cope with life’s ups and downs WITHOUT having to turn to a bottle.
