Reportedly suffering from an illness, Meek Mill is going to have to promise fans in Luxembourg and Berlin a rain-check.
Today Meek Mill announced that his final two shows of his European leg of the ‘Dreams & Nightmares’ Tour had to be canceled. The Philadelphia emcee took to his Facebook account to notify fans in Luxembourg and Germany of the short-notice changes:
“I’m sorry to announce that due to illness I will not be able to perform my last 2 shows of my tour tonight in Luxembourg and Tomorrow in Berlin.” The Maybach Music Group star continued, “I’m so sorry to all my fans and we will be announcing rescheduled dates very soon.”
I don’t think Europe has any GD’s have they? He probably is ill then or the money wasn’t good enough!
Sounds a little weird, but Conrad Murray — who has already been convicted and serving time for killing Michael Jackson — will exercise his 5th Amendment right against self-incrimination in Katherine Jackson’s lawsuit against AEG.
Michael’s mom is suing AEG, claiming the company negligently hired and supervised Murray, which resulted in her son’s death. Katherine has subpoenaed Murray to explain his arrangement with AEG.
Sources connected with the case tell TMZ … Murray’s lawyer, Valerie Wass, will file legal docs … arguing she is appealing Murray’s conviction, and if it’s overturned it’s likely he’d be re-tried. If that happens, what he says could still be used against him, so Wass wants Murray to keep his trap shut.
It’s pretty crazy, since Murray has already served almost a year-and-a-half. By the time his case is appealed, he’ll probably be out to be honest!
The armed robber described as China’s most dangerous man has been shot dead by police, according to state media.
Zhou Kehua, 42, is suspected of killing nine people and spent eight years on the run before being gunned down in the southwestern city of Chongqing early on Tuesday, the Xinhua news agency reported.
His death brings to an end the huge manhunt that began when Zhou reportedly shot and killed a woman outside a bank in Chongqing on Friday morning, before killing a police officer later that day.
Police in the city and two neighbouring provinces were ordered to cancel all leave to take part in the hunt for Zhou, and authorities offered a 500,000 yuan (£50,000) reward for information leading to his capture.
Xinhua said he was shot dead in Shapingba, a mountainous district on the outskirts of Chongqing where he was believed to be hiding after the Friday killings.
Zhou’s crime spree began when he shot and killed a woman during a 70,000 yuan bank heist in Chongqing in 2004.
Police believe he was also responsible for shootings in Changsha, in China’s central Hunan province, and Nanjing in the eastern province of Jiangsu, earning him the title “China’s most dangerous man” in Chinese media.
Gun crime is relatively rare in China, where extremely tight laws bar almost all private ownership of firearms.
Sky’s foreign affairs correspondent Lisa Holland said the search operation was one of the biggest manhunts that China has ever seen.
“A huge amount of resources were thrown at this operation. It is rare to see the state media ask for the public’s help in hunting down a suspected criminal.
“Usually if there is such a hunt it takes place away from public sight and it only gets publicised after the suspect has been caught.”
The North Korea women’s football team walked off on Wednesday after the South Korea flag was mistakenly displayed before their match, delaying the kick-off by over an hour.
“Of course the people are angry,” Ung Chang said.
“If your athlete got a gold medal and put the flag probably of some other country, what happens?”
The two Koreas are divided by the world’s most militarised border and remain technically at war after an armistice stopped the Korean War in 1953.
Prime Minister David Cameron, meanwhile, insists every effort will be made to ensure mistakes such as Wednesday’s Olympic flag mix-up never happen again.
He said the error in which the South Korean flag was wrongly shown instead of sworn enemy North Korea’s at a football game was “an honest mistake” for which an apology has been issued.
“Every effort will be taken to make sure this won’t happen again,” Cameron said.
The North Korean women’s team staged a protest ahead of their match with Colombia after the South Korean flag was wrongly shown on a big screen at Glasgow’s Hampden Park stadium.
As a consequence, the players walked off the pitch and delayed the match by an hour.
“It was unfortunate and should not have happened,” Cameron said
Speaking on a visit to the Olympic Park, Mr Cameron said: “This was an honest mistake, honestly made, an apology has been made and I’m sure every step will be taken to make sure these things don’t happen again.
“We shouldn’t over-inflate this episode. It was unfortunate, it shouldn’t have happened and I think we can leave it at that.”
When asked if he thought it was an accident, North Korea coach Sin Ui-gun was not so sure and said he would ask the organisers the same question.
“We were angry because our players were introduced as if they were from South Korea, which may affect us greatly as you may know,” he said.
“Our team was not going to participate unless the problem was solved perfectly and fortunately some time later, the broadcasting was corrected and shown again live so we made up our mind to participate and go on with the match,” he added.
“If this matter cannot be solved, we thought going on was nonsense. Winning the game cannot compensate for that thing.”
LOCOG, the organising committee of the Games, issued a statement apologising for the incident and also stressed it would not be repeated.
North Korea return to Hampden on Saturday for their next group match against France.
Rush-hour delays were reported on London roads this morning after special lanes for Olympics traffic became operational.
Motorists in the capital are being advised to allow extra time for journeys after the Olympic Route Network (ORN) came into force at 6am on Wednesday.
Thirty miles of Games lanes are now operational and “ordinary” motorists caught using them will face fines of £130, while release fees for impounded vehicles could be £200.
Their introduction immediately led to problems for those commuting by car during the morning rush-hour.
The worst traffic jams and hold-ups were reported on the M4 in west London, the A4 around Chiswick, the A12 at the Lea Interchange in east London and at the A13 Canning Town Flyover.
Grosvenor Place in Victoria, Hyde Park Corner, Tower Bridge and Baker Street were also very busy.
At the same time, Sky’s Enda Brady said the Games lanes in west London were mainly empty, spotting only a handful of official vehicles as he travelled along the official route.
He noted that the Games lanes were being “very well observed” by drivers.
The lanes have come into operation two days before the Games’ official opening ceremony and are to be used by authorised “Olympic Family” vehicles only, with other motorists restricted to using remaining lanes.
These include vehicles used by athletes, Olympics officials and VIPs. At times, some 1,300 vehicles an hour are expected to use them.
Kevin Delaney, former head of traffic at the Metropolitan Police and now head of road safety at the Institute of Advanced Motorists, said: “London’s roads are at capacity or close to it throughout the day.
“If you reduce the capacity for ordinary traffic on the Games routes up to 50%, then you have to reduce the amount of cars by the same amount.
“Many drivers will switch to public transport, which will also be used by many thousands of spectators, so the potential is there for even a small incident to bring London to a standstill.”
Transport for London (TfL) is urging drivers to avoid London from now until the end of the Games.
London mayor Boris Johnson said: “With just days until the opening ceremony, London is more prepared for the Games than any other Olympic city has ever been.
“The ORN is a requirement of all host cities, ensuring athletes and officials get to their events on time.”
But severe delays were also reported on several Tube lines on Wednesday morning, fuelling concerns the notoriosly creaky Underground system will be unable to cope with the strain of the Games.
Sylvester Stallone’s son with his first wife Sasha Czack, Sage was found dead in his Los Angeles home on Friday by an employee and a relative.
No suicide note was found but an autopsy is to be performed, establishing a cause of death is likely to take several weeks while toxicology tests are performed.
Sage Stallone made his acting debut in 1990’s Rocky V. He was due to get married this weekend.
Reports say he lived his life as her hermit and could have been dead seven days although his facebook page was updated more recently.
Sylvester Stallone has asked that people respect “my talented son’s memory and feel compassion for his loving mother Sasha.”
He also added: “This agonising loss will be felt for the rest of our lives…Sage was our first child and the centre of our universe and I am humbly begging for all to have my son’s memory and soul left in peace.”
Serena said she always wanted whatever her older sister Venus had and today she followed in Venus’ footsteps by claiming her 5th Wimbledon win.
Poland’s Agnieszka Radwanska put a great fight in the final but Serena took the title with 6-1, 5-7, 6-2.
Serena and Venus Williams have now won 10 out 0f the last 13 Wimbledon ladies singles finals – a great achievement. The sisters could go on to bring home more titles from Wimbledon tonight as they play in the womens doubles champion.
Serena’s title is made even more sweet considering the ordeal she had recently suffered in hospital which she described
I had a tube in my stomach and it was draining constantly. I had a blood clot, lung problems, and I couldn’t do anything. I felt at the lowest of lows.
John McEnroe commented
I believe that you are watching the greatest women’s player that has ever played this game.
..so now you see why those hip-hop folk are fighting over Ms Serena!
