Two people were transported to a hospital where an adult male died, the Sheriff’s Department’s Compton Station said in a news release.

Nene Leakes hit "RHOA" co-star Claudia Jordan with a Cease and Desist letter too! Get the deets inside and read about drama between "BBW LA" stars Brittish Williams and Draya Michele and check out Safaree backtracking about helping Nicki Minaj with her rhymes.
Yesterday we reported on Nene Leakes sending a Cease And Desist to "RHOA" star Kenya Moore and now we can confirm that Claudia Jordan received a similar letter as well. While Claudia didn't post her letter (see Kenya's C&D above) she did confirm to the AJC that she's on Nene's #GirlBye list. She told the publication ia text, “I thought it was fake it was so ridiculous!”
Nene and her legal eagles can't be serious. Don't they realize we ONLY watch the show for the slander? It's the best part.

Chile....the chicks from "BBW LA" are fighting. Yes....apparently these women are still relevant and still filming.
So for those of you interested, here's the backstory: During a 2014 fight between Brittish Williams and "Mint Swim" designer Draya Michele, Brittish found out that Draya didn't own her trademark....so she bought it. This was all exposed when Draya responded about the rumor in someone's Instagram comments section.
Was that petty? Yes. But Brittish told her fans it was a "teaching moment." She did it to help Draya be "great". Read her explanation (from the bottom to the top) here:
In music news....
Remember when Safaree hinted that he had a hand in crafting Nicki Minaj's rhymes during an interview with The Breakfast Club? Well....the Barbz went off on him, so now he's backtracking on Twitter. During a long rant, he apologized to Nicki and praised her for her quick wit and ability to write a good punchline. And he says she does it all by herself. Check it:
