Soldier Kidd and Soldier Jojo Claim Innocence in XXXTentacion Shooting Death

Two rappers from Miami—Soldier Kidd and Soldier Jojo—have been accused of being involved in the shooting death of XXXTentacion, but they’re both are saying they’re 100% innocent and had nothing to do with XXX’s murder.

After the shooting death of XXXTentacion, internet sleuths went to work to find out who was responsible. Florida officials are still looking for a motive and the suspected shooters, leaving speculation to run rampant on the internet.

Shortly after XXX was pronounced dead, the Broward County Sheriff’s Office released the following description of the suspects: “At least one of the suspects fired a gun striking [XXXTentacion]. Both of the suspects fled in a dark-colored SUV. Investigators say it appears to be a possible robbery.” According to TMZ, police said the suspects were “black males wearing hoodies” and the “shooter was wearing a red mask.”

Earlier today, just hours before XXXTentacion was shot and killed, Soldier Kidd and Soldier JoJo posted this photo on Instagram, along with a caption including what many believe are threats against XXXTentacion:

“Triple X but we banging like we BD @soldier.jojo ON THE X,” reads the caption, which also includes a target emoji. If you look closely at the photo, you’ll notice a red mask (similar to the police’s description) sitting on the headrest of the car’s seat.

Also, a “Boomerang” photo posted on Soldier Kidd’s Instagram Live showed that he had picked up food from Hook Fish and Chicken, a restaurant in Deerfield, Florida, not too far from where XXXTentacion was killed. If you pause the moving photo, you can clearly see a gun sitting in his lap, along with a plate of food.

Soldier Jojo also posted a picture to his IG story with a seemingly identical red mask. The picture, which shows a timestamp of June 2nd, shows Jojo crouched beside a car with the red mask on top of his head and extending his middle finger toward the ground. Oddly enough, the image also has the letters “XXX” in red type. Another photo shows him posing in an undisclosed parking garage with Soldier Kidd.

Fans of XXXTentacion were quick to jump to conclusions and accused Soldier Kidd and Jojo of being behind XXX’s death, but both Soldier Kidd and Soldier Jojo are apparently a part of a group/rap collective called “XXX.” It’s not clear whether there’s any connection between the group and XXXTentacion or if it’s just pure coincidence.

After rumors emerged that Soldier Kidd and Soldier Jojo were responsible for XXXTentacion’s shooting death, Soldier Kidd jumped on Instagram live to clear his name. He denied having anything to do with XXX’s death, saying that he was at his house “all day popping Xanax and sh** like that.”

Soldier Kidd also posted the following video on Instagram, saying that he didn’t even know XXXTentacion.

“I seen a lot comments on social media saying I had something to do with XXXTentacion’s passing,” Soldier Kidd said in the video. “We all got love for Florida. I got love for Broward [County]. I ain’t even know who the man was, you feel me? We out here handling business, we out here getting money, we don’t got no time for none of this sh** that’s going on.”

Soldier Kidd also offered his condolences to XXXTentacion’s family before closing his video out by reiterating that he “had nothing to do with” XXX’s murder.

For his part, Soldier Jojo uploaded a video on his own page also denying any involvement in XXXTentacion’s murder.

For what it’s worth, police believe the shooting was the result of a robbery, and detectives are reportedly offering a $3,000 award for any information that leads to an arrest.

Rich The Kid’s Girlfriend Tori Brixx Denies Setting Up Home Invasion Robbery (VIDEO)

Rich The Kid’s girlfriend Tori Brixx wants the world to know that she did NOT have anything to do with the home invasion robbery that left her and RTK battered and hospitalized last week.

Last Thursday, a group of armed men entered Tori’s home while she and Rich The Kid were there demanding cash and jewelry.

Rich reportedly tried to fight them off, but he was no match for the men who beat and pistol-whipped him and Tori. After the attack, Tori and Rich were hospitalized with injuries, with Rich sharing a photo of himself on his Instagram lying on a hospital gurney.

Not too long after news broke of the home invasion, photos surfaced showing the extent of Tori’s injuries. She suffered a deep laceration on her cheek, along with bruising and swelling around her eye, which apparently required some stitches.

A lot of folks on social media and the comments section on blogs blamed her for the robbery, saying that she set the whole thing up, but the most vocal accusations came from Rich The Kid’s estranged wife and rapper The Game.

“I just want this to be known when I see @toribrixx I’m beating her ass [because] b*tch you know you set him up,” Rich The Kid’s estranged wife Antonette Willis wrote. “Y’all can feel how y’all want to feel. My kids could have been going to their dads funeral just bc of this dumb ass girl.”

The Game echoed Antonette’s sentiments in an IG post of his own. “Aye @richthekid you been set up blood….. surround yourself by REAL ONES asap nigga. Tyler Perry, give her a job,” he wrote along with a bunch of hashtags supporting his claims.

The accusations that she set Rich The Kid up must have gotten to Tori because she went on Instagram Live Friday to clear her name and let it be known that she wasn’t involved in the violent armed robbery in any way.

In the video, Brixx talked about how the robbery went down and how she wasn’t even worried about herself, she was more-so worried about her little sister who was in the home at the time, which is actually what caused her to be hit with the gun. “All I said was don’t f**kin touch my sister… I wasn’t even worried about myself,” she explained. “So because I said, ‘don’t f**k with my sister,’ the n**ga took the gun and hit me in the face.”

She went on to say that she doesn’t expect anyone to understand where she’s coming from, but it is upsetting to her to know that women are accusing her of the crime as if her eye “ain’t big enough.” Tori also said that she has no need to set Rich The Kid up because he takes care of her.

“I’m disappointed because I didn’t set nobody up. Because at the end of the day, if I ask Rich for it, he would have gave it to me because that’s how much he f**k with me,” she said. “I don’t gotta ask nobody for no chain. If I wanted a chain, bro, I can have 10 chains. If I wanted X-Y-Z I could have that, so I don’t need no n**gas to run in and take no sh*t. I got my own money. Let’s keep that in mind.”

XXXTentacion’s Last Instagram Live Video Before Shooting Death

Before being tragically shot and killed Monday afternoon (Jun. 18), XXXTentacion filmed one last video sharing an inspirational message to his followers on Instagram.

In the just over a minute-long video, the rapper talks to fans about his life ending prematurely, saying that if “worse thing comes to worse” and he dies “a tragic death or some sh*t” before getting the chance to live out his dream, he hopes that kids hear his message, are able to make something of themselves and use his message to make something positive out of it. “If I’m gonna die or ever be a sacrifice, I want to make sure that my life made at least 5 million kids happy.”

XXX also said that he hoped people would be able to find something good regardless of the bad things surrounding his name.

“Regardless of the bad things people say about me, I don’t give a f**k, because I know my goal in the end, and I know what I want for everyone, and I know what my message is,” he said. “So I just wanted to say I appreciate and love all of you and I believe in you all. Do not let your depression make you. Do not let your body define your soul. Let your soul define your body. Let your soul define your body. Your mind is limitless. You are worth more than you could believe. All you have to do is dream, and all you have to do is want to fulfill that dream and have the strength…”

The rapper (real name: Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy) recorded the video via Instagram Live just hours before he was shot and apparently predicted his own untimely death.

XXX was shopping for a motorcycle in Miami when he was shot while leaving the video. Video footage recorded immediately after the shooting shows onlookers checking for a pulse from the rapper, who was unresponsive and not breathing.

No suspect has been named in the shooting and a motive is not yet known. Witnesses reported hearing multiple shots fired, and according to the dispatch audio, the incident was a possible drive-by, with dispatchers naming several possible getaway vehicles, including a black Dodge Journey, a Chevy Tahoe, and a Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Though XXXTentacion was facing felony charges and was involved in a number of feuds, it wasn’t known that his life was in danger, however, he did talk about being concerned about dying in his last video.

The rapper was planning a charity event when he was shot and had posted about it on his Instagram story not too long before he was murdered.

Porsha Williams Reveals She’s Dating A Mystery Man & It’s Not Rickey Smiley (VIDEO)

After years of somewhat of a desperate search, Porsha Williams may have found Mr. Right. She recently revealed on Dish Nation that’s she in a new relationship but is keeping it private for now.

Porsha and her radio hosts were discussing how love often comes when you stop looking and she casually blurted out that she’s got a new boo that she’s quite smitten with.

“And that’s how it happens, it’s always when you’re not looking anymore. It’s when you go ahead and give up…I stopped looking and he arrived. Thank you, Jesus!

“I had gave up, honey, and bought cats online. They on the way, Ima have to cancel the order. I was ready to just let it go!”

Porsha says she wants her to take her time with this relationship before making it public or featuring the guy on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. “Keep it under wraps,” new Atlanta Housewife, Eva Marcille, advised.

“I really wanna be private with this one until I have to,” Porsha said. “I’m treading really lightly.”

Some are already wondering if this new guy is Rickey Smiley. The two have great chemistry and have said they would be open to dating if they didn’t work together at Dish Nation.

Smiley has since shut down the rumor and says he’s not Porsha’s mystery man.

“What [the blogs] don’t understand is it takes an effect on people’s lives when you put out things that are simply not true. Porsha and I have a great working relationship and we are friends. People would like to see us together but she has her thing going on and I have my thing going on.”

The RHOA star has been very unlucky in love since her divorce from NFL player Kordell Stewart in 2013.

Her episode of Love Connection is scheduled to air soon, but it’s no word if that’s how she met her current boyfriend. “She’s legitimately looking to settle down and fall in love and have kids,” host Andy Cohen told Entertainment Tonight.

Whovever the man is, we wish the couple well. Let’s just hope Porsha doesn’t scare him off with another “baby-nup.”

Beyoncé Wishes Twins Sir & Rumi Carter Happy 1st Birthday at Concert: “We Love You!”

Beyoncé and JAY-Z’s twins, Sir and Rumi, turned 1 year old on Wednesday (Jun. 13), and their superstar mom celebrated the occasion with special shout-out during the Manchester, England stop of her and Jay’s “On the Run II” stadium tour.

At the end of the show, while singing the concert’s closing number “Forever Young,” Beyoncé said: “Happy Birthday to sir and Rumi. We love you!”

The crowd naturally cheered after the adorable mention, which comes just one week after the notoriously private parents gave fans a rare glimpse of Sir and Rumi during the tour’s opening night show in Cardiff, Wales.

WATCH HERE:

Fans were hella confused last week when Beyoncé’s rep told BuzzFeed that twin babies shown during the show’s opening montage (below) were NOT Sir and Rumi.

Thankfully, Sir and Rumi’s grandmother—Beyoncé’s mom, Ms. Tina Lawson—posted THIS photo of the actual twins from footage apparently showing Mr. and Mrs. Carter’s vow renewal ceremony, which is shown on the screen near the end of every “OTR 2” concert:

She captioned the image, “My sweet babies.”

This is our first “official” look at the twins since Beyoncé’s Instagram post last July celebrating the day the twins turned one month old. We also saw a quick glimpse of the babies last November when paparazzi snapped pictures of them in Miami, where the Carters were staying for JAY-Z’s “4:44 Tour” concert.

While Beyoncé and JAY-Z never speak publicly about their kids (outside of their music, of course), Ms. Tina isn’t shy about doting on her grandchildren. Last year, she gave us a small glimpse into Sir and Rumi’s personalities, telling Us Weekly, “[Sir] has a stare, like a mean mug, like JAY, sometimes, which is so cute [and Rumi], she’s just so happy all the time and so sweet. They are just adorable!”

She added, “It’s amazing. It’s one of the best blessings. Being a grandmother, it’s not like being a mom because you don’t have to have all the responsibility all the time, but they are amazing. This is my first experience around twins, and they’re so different, and their personalities, and they are wonderful.”

Tokyo Vanity & Spice’s Fight Sparks All-Out Brawl Between LHHATL Cast Members (VIDEO)

If you thought Tokyo Vanity and Spice’s purse-throwing brunch brawl on last week’s episode of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta was the last of their beef, you were sadly mistaken.

On this week’s episode, Spice and Tokyo continued their feud with a rousing round two, and this time, damn near everyone else ended up getting into brawls of their own on the side.

It was Tokyo vs. Spice, Estelita vs. Sierra, BK vs. Estelita and so on…

For the past few episodes, Tokyo and Spice have been going at it ever since Tokyo found out her her ex, Tabius, had moved on and was messing around with Spice. Last week, Tokyo (almost) introduced her purse to Spice’s head after Spice kept taunting her about her weight, and this week, the pair ended up sparring again at the dude ranch.

Everyone was sitting down enjoying tacos and burritos when the subject of Rasheeda’s Pressed launch in Houston the night before came up. Spice thanked Rasheeda for the good time, and when Tokyo was trying to explain why she wasn’t there, Spice interjected.

Spice said she didn’t appreciate being talked about behind her back, and Tokyo said she didn’t appreciate being disrespected by Spice. Rasheeda tried to calm the storm, but it was too late by then. Like lost balloons, tensions were already too high for them to be brought back down.

“I don’t have no problems with her but the bitch wanted to keep playing with me!” Tokyo yelled. She could barely even finish her sentence before Spice stood up and tossed her plate at Tokyo, hitting her smack dab in the face. Apparently, Spice doesn’t like being called a “bitch.”

Tokyo tried to go after Spice, but security swooped in and held both of them back as BK rushed over to try and calm Tokyo down. Spice and Tokyo’s fight sparked another battle between Estelita and Sierra when the former accused the latter of flip-flopping between Tokyo and Spice.

Then, when BK Brasco—Sierra’s boyfriend—told Estelita to “chill out” she went off on him: “F**k you and your bitch!” And last, but certainly not least, Spice hopped out the production van (WHILE IT WAS MOVING!) to go for another round, with Estelita not too far behind yer yelling for Sierra: “Where that bish at?! Where that bish at?!”

Damn near the whole LHHATL cast showed out at the dude ranch, y’all. And Joc’s reaction was spot-on: “Boy we had a whole showdown at the O.K. Corral, and I’m looking at the cowboys, they looking like, ‘Man what’s the problem?’” Meanwhile, Sierra just wants to know “What are we fighting for?!”

Who knows, Sierra. Who knows…

Man Who Threw Homeless Man’s Belongings Into Lake Arrested for Robbery

2Sintay assaulted another man, stole his phone and took off running with it.

Another video related to the incident recorded by another man, Matt Nelson, shows Sintay returning to the lake and trying to remove items that fell into the lake, according to Sintay.

Sintay explained to Nelson that he’s always throwing away trash in the area, and he considered the man’s belongings “trash.” Asked why he was in the lake taking stuff out, Sintay claimed he was “trying to do the f**king right thing” because he didn’t want to “pollute the lake.”

Sintay then acknowledged that he’d seen the destitute man in the area before and that he knew what he was throwing away was the man’s stuff, but he didn’t care because he still considered it trash.

“He’s been a resident here for a long time,” the videographer said, referring to “Drew,” who didn’t appear to be in the area at the time. “He has no place to have his stuff, so just leave him alone,” a passerby said to the group. “He’s not bothering anybody.”

When Nelson asked Sintay what his name was (he hadn’t been identified at the time of the recording), instead of answering, Sintay—who noticed that he was being recorded—appeared to assault Nelson and grabbed his phone before taking off with it. You can actually hear Nelson crying out for help in the video and saying that he’s being attacked.

Unbeknownst to Sintay, the video was filmed on Facebook Live, so it was posted (and remains online) even though Nelson no longer has access to his phone, which was stolen by Sintay. Watch above.

According to Nelson, Sintay did not return his phone and he had to go to the emergency room after being injured from Sintay’s assault.

Nelson wrote on Facebook:

“Is this that same dude? UPDATE: Thank you, loved ones! And thanks especially to my amazing nephew, Theo! Henry and his “friend” assaulted me multiple times, I was also dragged by their moving vehicle and hit a few times in the head, but I’m safe now. Still do not have my phone. Please keep calling it and if Henry picks up, I’d like it back. I’ll continue to share the story and folks should feel free to reach out to me here or via email.

“QUICK UPDATE #2: Thankful for the ER staff who assessed my injuries and thankful for my hard head! Even more thankful for the kind and loving friends and family who have been looking out for me and taking care of me. And, thankful to my community, who knows that Oakland can be a place where the dignity, safety and full human rights of everyone can be defended, protected, and affirmed. I know we have a long way to go, but I also know we have no choice but to get there…onward!

“BRIEF UPDATE #3: I am recovering from a mild concussion, some cuts and bruises, and many sore and strained muscles. Your love, food, joy, outrage, companionship, laughter, rides, check-ins, insight, and incredible displays of compassion have helped me heal and prepared me for the work ahead. Deepest thanks to everyone who has reached out with love and support! You have taken care of me, and for this, I am deeply grateful.

“And let’s not lose focus: HOUSING IS A HUMAN RIGHT. While my wounds will heal, the deep wounds of inequality and injustice in #Oakland will fester unless we dramatically improve how we treat our neighbors who are unhoused, unsheltered, or on the verge of losing their housing. This is a moral and cultural issue and a reflection of our values as much (or more) than it is a policy and civil code issue. And our values and morals must guide our political decisions. We can do much better by our people. And to achieve this, we need you and the love you’ve shown me to lead us forward to a town rooted in full dignity and human rights for all.”

Dennis Rodman, Wearing MAGA Hat, Cries Over Trump’s Meeting With Kim Jong Un in North Korea (VIDEO)

Though President Donald Trump’s meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un is certainly a historic moment on its own, Dennis Rodman somehow managed to steal the spotlight away from the Trump-Kim meeting during his appearance on CNN Monday night (Jun. 11).

The NBA legend and longtime friend of Kim Jong Un, who has paid several visits to North Korea over the years, was on hand in Singapore to support Donny and Kim’s face-to-face meeting, and he turned into a big ole ball of emotions during a bizarre live interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo.

Wearing a red “Make America Great Again” hat, sunglasses, a t-shirt promoting a marijuana-related cryptocurrency company called Pot Coin (who sponsored his trip to Singapore), and his trademark face rings, of course, Dennis broke down in tears while discussing all it took to get to this moment.

The crocodile tears began to flow when Rodman recalled America’s reaction to his first visit to North Korea in 2013:

“When I went back home, I got so many death threats. When I came home, I couldn’t even go home. I had to hide out for 30 days. But I kept my head up high, brother. I knew things were going to change.”

He slammed former President Barack Obama for not taking his BFF Kim Jong Un seriously when he was in office.

Rodman said that Kim had told him “certain” things to relay to Obama about potential negotiations between the U.S. and North Korea, but Obama “didn’t even give me the time of day—he just brushed me off, but that didn’t deter me.”

Rodman also offered Trump some advice about how to gain the North Korean leader’s trust:

“President Trump should understand the fact that the reason the Marshal of North Korea [Kim Jong Un] respects Dennis Rodman is the fact that he trusts me, and I gave him something for his birthday—and I thought I couldn’t pull this off—and I said the day before his birthday, I’m gonna give you a present.”

That present Rodman promised Kim Jong Un was to bring a professional basketball team to North Korea “even though I knew I couldn’t do it,” he said, adding that he quickly realized he needed to come through with his promise, otherwise there would be a “problem.”

After helping train North Korean basketball players and arranging to bring former NBA players to the country, Rodman said Kim told him, “Dennis, you know, this is the first time someone ever kept their word to me in this country.”

Rodman said the moment was emotional and he encouraged Trump to show his “heart” to Kim, who Rodman described as a “big kid” who just wants to have “fun.”

Dennis added, “If Trump can pull this off, more power to him.” The basketball star claimed that Trump reached out to him prior to the summit through a secretary to tell him how “very proud” of him he was. “We don’t need a miracle, but we need the doors to be open so we can start fresh,” Rodman said of the historic meeting between Trump and Kim Jong Un.

“I just wanna bring sports to North Korea,” Rodman said. “That’s it, sports. … I’m just so happy to be here, man,” he added, calling Monday, June 11th “the world’s day.”

“Donald Trump should take a lot of credit for this. He went out the box and made this happen,” Rodman said.
