VERNE TROYER DEAD AT 49 

TMZ 

Verne Troyer -- best known for playing Mini-Me in the 'Austin Powers' comedies, and for being one of the shortest men in the world -- has died. 

Verne died Saturday, according to a statement from his family. We'd been told he was on some form of life support since being taken to the hospital earlier this month after cops got a report he was drunk and suicidal, and was treated for possible alcohol poisoning.

From Coachella to #Beychella: Beyonce Schools Festivalgoers in Her Triumphant Return 

RS-  RollingStone's 10 favorite moments from singer's first post-twins performance

"Thank you for letting me be the first black woman to headline Coachella," said Beyoncé on Saturday night. "Ain't that 'bout a bitch?” 

An unprecedented move in the luxe festival's 19-year history, one-third of this year's lineup is comprised of female artists – and at the helm of this progress is none other than Queen Bey herself. Generations past once looked fondly on Woodstock 1969 as a crucial turning point in American culture; but in 2018, our Woodstock, our Monterey Pop, our Isle of Wight, is definitively Beyoncé's headlining set at Coachella.

Jeezy Returns With "Pressure" Album Dropping Dec, 15th 

The veteran Atlanta rapper revealed the title, release date and cover for his new album. The project, titled simply Pressure, will be released on Def Jam on Dec. 15. 

The rhymer's announcement comes as a bit of a surprise, but it's one he's actually been teasing for a little while now. For the last several weeks, the Snowman's been using the hashtag #TrustYaProcess on his social media accounts. It appears to be a very slight flip of the Philadelphia 76ers motto of #TrustTheProcess, with Jeezy's version calling people to "trust in oneself to overcome life's most difficult challenges." Dope. 

To announce Pressure, Jeezy, who signed with United Talent Agency last summer, uploaded an extra-cinematic trailer to his Instagram account. In it, Jeezy pulls up in his flossy white Ferrari before stepping onto the snow-covered road. At that exact moment, a triumphant new track, presumably from his Pressure album, begins playing, and we know the Snowman has arrived. 

"PRESSURE. 12/15. #TrustYaProcess," he captions the appropriately epic trailer. You can pre-order Pressure through Jeezy's official online store and cop official #TrustYaProcess gear from the same place. 

 

[UpDate] Yo Gotti Is Person Of Interest In Young Dolph Shooting  

Young Dolph was rushed to the hospital today after being shot multiple times outside of a popular tourist spot in Hollywood, California. He is expected to survive his wounds. 

Police now believe his Memphis rival Yo Gotti was involved in the shooting and have named Gotti as a person of interest. 

Law enforcement sources have told TMZ that Gotti and Dolph were both staying at the Loews Hotel in Hollywood and their crews got into some sort of disagreement. A short time later, shots were fired outside the hotel. 

At least one witness has said Gotti was involved. 

Dolph and Gotti were once tight, but have had a rocky relationship ever since Dolph didn’t sign with Gotti. 

Things between the two got worse after Dolph titled his album The King of Memphis, which is Gotti’s Twitter handle. 

In February of this year, Dolph’s SUV was shot at almost 100 times during CIAA Weekend in Charlotte, NC. He was uninjured. Gotti affiliate Blac Youngsta was arrested for the shooting, and is currently on bail and awaiting trial.

FUTURE & DRAKE SUED FOR $25M 

Future & Drake Sued For $25M By Woman Reportedly Raped At Concert 

A 28-year-old woman is reportedly suing Drake and Future for $25 million after she was allegedly raped after their Nashville, Tennessee concert at the Bridgestone Arena last August. 

According to The Tennesseean, the unidentified woman was viciously attacked by 38-year-old Leavy Johnson after he told her he could get her backstage to meet both artists. Johnson claimed he was an employee at the venue. As soon as they were alone, he reportedly pushed her down in a corner and raped her.

Johnson was indicted for rape in January and after evading police for months, he was finally found in Tampa, Florida. He was arrested, extradited back to Nashville and charged with rape in May. 

The alleged victim believes Drake, Future and arena employees should’ve known Johnson had outstanding warrants for assault at the time of the alleged attack, and potentially posed a threat to the public. 

Drake and Future have not addressed the allegations.
