The LEGAL REASONS Scrappy Skipped Out On “LAHH ATL” Premiere Parties….A Warrant For Arrest Issued Over Pee Tests!

 photo lil-scrappy-thrown-out-hotel_t750x550_zps2d8dee4c.jpg

Scrappy missed out on the "Love & Hip Hop Atlanta" premiere parties in both ATL and NYC last week.  His co-star and fiancee Erica Dixon told us they’re still engaged, but that he couldn’t show up due to "legal problems."  Now we know those are…

A warrant has been issued for Scrappy’s arrest in Georgia….all because of some fraudulent pee!

Back in 2008, Scrappy was arrest on a weed charge and part of his on-going probation was to submit urine tests to his P.O.  But last month, he submitted urine that was cold to the touch, so officials believed it had been tampered with–meaning Scraps pulled the old switcheroo with pee that wasn’t his.

Scrappy was told to do it over, and submit some fresh urine on the spot.  Of course, dude refused, and now the arrest warrant was issued for probation violation.

TMZ spoke with Scrappy’s lawyer who isn’t admitting any wrong doing:

We spoke to Scrappy’s lawyer, Mawuli Mel Davis, who tells us Scrappy plans to appear in court on May 16 to address the issue — and says, "It is our hope that the Judge will recall the revocation warrant that is currently pending against Mr. Richardson."

He adds, "Since Mr. Richardson’s release from jail, he has been reporting to probation as ordered and doing his best to comply with all conditions of probation."

Reportedly, Scrappy’s going to turn himself in to the police next week….with VH1 cameras in tow.  Of course!

BEAT IT: Michael Jordan Moves To DISMISS Paternity Suit, Says Legal Docs Prove THE KID Is NOT His Son

Michael Jordan has released a statement claiming legal documents prove he didn’t father the teenager who’s claiming to be his son. Find out what he said inside….

Basketball legend Michael Jordan has been splashed across gossip pages in the past week after the 16-year-old son of Pamela Y. Smith (shown above) posted a YouTube video claiming to be his son and then she filed legal paperwork demanding Michael to claim paternity.

Back in February, Pamela Y. Smith, 48, filed suit in Fulton County Superior Court requesting that MJ take a paternity test, pay child support and share medical, dental and hospital costs that are not covered by insurance.

So why did Pam do this now? Apparently, Pamela’s son wants to forge a relatiosnip with his father and for now…they think the legal system is the best route. In a statement released earlier, Pamela’s publicist said, "Pamela had no choice but to support her son and his desire to forge a relationship with his father. That’s why she is now speaking out and prompting Michael to do the right thing."

Not so fast…..said MJ’s lawyers today. Michael and his legal team recently filed documents seeking to dismiss Pamela’s case, claming paternity of her son has already been established.  And MJ is NOT the father.  His legal team told the Associated Press,

"Public records show that the paternity of the child was established in a prior case in this same court many years ago and that Michael Jordan is not the father. He also filed a counterclaim seeking sanctions for the false claims made against him. It is unfortunate that well-known figures are the target of these kind of claims. Michael Jordan will vigorously defend himself and his reputation."

And Michael’s team says Pamela’s suit is a "shameless, bad faith attempt to abuse the legal system."  For now, we guess a judge will decide as MJ and Pamela are set to meet in court for Tuesday, March 12.

We reached out the Pamela’s publicist for a comment….and we’re still waiting.

Womp.

Ciara has released the cover art for her upcoming single "Body Party" along with a short snippet. Listen to the track inside and hear Azealia Banks’ remake of The Strokes’ hit "Barely Legal."

 

We’ve been talking about Ciara’s upcoming One Woman Army disc for over a year now and though it hasn’t gotten a release date, we do know that she’ll revisit her ATL roots on an upcoming single called "Body Party."  The track samples the ATL bass classic "My boo" by the Ghost Town DJ’s and is a sexy mid-tempo track that listeners can dance to….or grind to.  She tweeted, "My Body’s Your Party Let’s Get It Started…"

 

Join the "Body Party"  here:

 

In other new music:

Before her highly anticipated album, Broke With Expensive Taste hits the stores, Azealia Banks had dropped yet another buzz single which she hopes will catch fire on the radio and in the clubs. The song, "Barely Legal" is a dance club remake of a rock and roll single by the band The Strokes. Luckily, Azealia can pull this kind of music off without batting an eyelash.

DIVORCE SHOCKER: Deion Sanders’ Legal Team QUITS, Says He CAN’T PAY And WON’T COMMUNICATE!

If you thought Pilar Sanders was getting the short end of the stick during her divorce from football/baseball legend Deion Sanders, it turns out the NFL broadcaster is having his own issues as well.  Find out why his legal team is walking away from him inside….

We told you about previously about Pilar Sanders coming out on the losing end of her ongoing divorce from Deion Sanders, but things just got even messier as the legal team that had previously won so many victories for Deion, is now ALSO divorcing him.

In legal documents filed on New Year’s Eve, Deion’s legal team effectively quit the divorce proceedings and asked to be withdrawn from the case, stating an inability to “effectively communicate with their client.”  They noted that Deion is “unable to pay his attorneys pursuant to the terms of the employment agreements with his attorneys.”

It’s interesting to see how this will play out since Deion and Pilar were due back in court on January 9 to resolve their custody dispute.  SMH….

Pilar’s publicist reached out to CherryOnTop to say,

“Nothing surprises me at this point, first he screws Pilar out of her support, now his legal counsel, what’s next? I look at it this way all Deion had to do was write a check and do right by the mother of his children. That’s what this all comes down to, a dollar, a simple dollar. Deion has been very blessed throughout his career and to have made the income he has, why would he not want his children to continue on with a similar lifestyle? Spite … that’s all it is spite, hate and resentment. Sadly, a new year has no resolution in anytime soon. I would ask to have the madness to stop, the lies (which are now leading to libel law suits), he [Deion] promises small time ‘blogs’ exclusives and to put them in touch with other sports figures & celebrities in exchange to attempt to make her look bad, writing nasty lies. At the end these bloggers will realize they got screwed as well as ending up in a court room themselves.”

Well…maybe this shakeup in Deion’s camp will give Pilar the opportunity to get her foot back in the game and win her kids back.  We will keep you posted…..

Halle Berry And Gabriel Aubry Reach An AGREEMENT, Halle PAYING For Gabe’s MEDICAL And LEGAL Bills

Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry seems to be moving forward for Nahla’s sake as deets from their "amicable settlement" in court have leaked.  Find out what they worked out inside…..

The fallout from the Thanksgiving Day brawl between Halle Berry’s fiance Olivier Martinez and Gabriel Aubry has been settled as deets from the former couple’s agreement have been leaked.  

A source told Radar that Gabe will not press charges against Olivier.

 "Gabe has agreed to drop legal proceedings for the temporary restraining order against Olivier to be made permanent. Gabe suffered horrific injuries from the fight, but as part of the settlement he reached with Halle on Thursday he agreed to drop the bid for the permanent restraining order. Gabe feels that there are enough layers of protection in the settlement agreement that will protect him and Nahla in the future."  

Also, Gabe doesn’t have to worry about running into Oliver during drop offs anymore as that issue has also been taken care of.  Olivier won’t be around.

It’s also been reported that Halle and Oliver will pay for Gabriel’s medical and legal bills.  The source said, ‘Without admitting ANY guilt, Olivier agreed to pay for Gabe’s medical bills because he suffered the brunt of the injuries from the fight.’  

It seems as if Halle and Gabe are moving in a positive direction.  Her protective order against Gabe expired on Thursday, and he was reunited with Nahla on Friday.  Whew.

 

LEGAL WOES: Allen Iverson And Terrell Owens ACCUSED Of Being Deadbeats Again + Rapper 40 Glocc Tries To Choke Girlfriend To Death?!

Motions are being filed left and right when it comes to deadbeat dads and men who like to "lay hands." Get the deets on T.O. and Allen Iverson’s child support drama and how 40 Glocc tried to choke his girlfriend to death three times in one day inside….

Did former NBA great Allen Iverson leave his wife and five kids broke and penniless? According to his estranged wife Tawanna, he not only left them broke but $ 23,000 in debt.

Tawanna claims that soon after she filed for divorce in June, Allen stopped putting money in their joint bank account (despite being worth $ 20 Million).  But it didn’t end there….she claims he then made several large withdrawals and one of them was for $ 20,000, which he spent on diamonds. SMH.

Of course a judge will have to make a decision about this but with no court date set, who knows how Tawanna will be able to afford to have a nice Christmas for those five kids……

 

And in other deadbeat dad news….

Two of Terrell Owens’ baby mommas have filed a joint court motion asking a Los Angeles County judge to find the former NFL star in contempt of court for being $ 30,000 behind in child support.

The mothers, Samelia Miller, who has a five-year-old son, and Kimberly Floyd, who has a seven-year-old daughter, claim that T.O. has missed "several" months of payment and they want their money!  

For his part, T.O.’s folks say he is currently unemployed (ummm…doesn’t VH1 count?) and he is trying to have his child support payments adjusted and wants to resolve the situation.

 

And in "I might be the abusive type" news…..

Rapper 40 Glocc (he used to be down with 50 Cent’s G-Unit) was arrested by cops after he tried to choke his girlfriend to death……three times! 

According to a Las Vegas police report, 40 Glocc aka Lawrence White got arrested on October 3rd and was accused of brutaling beating his girlfriend.

The report states that 40 Glocc said his lady was "playing him" and that led to him hitting her several times around the head, face, legs and rib area and choking her until she "could not speak or breathe."

Then he reportedly took a break…..and tried to strangle her two more times AFTER his nap!  At this point she managed to get away and call the cops.  WTF is going on here??

Cops found "significant bruising to her throat, consistent with strangulation injuries."  And did we mention he’s a former member of the Crips? Yea……and he got busted as he was fleeing the scene of the crime.

The girlfriend claims the abuse has been going on for over a year and she feared for her life.  She said he once handcuffed her and locked her in the truck of his car.  Damn shame.

Currently he’s in jail (working on getting released) and has been "…charged with three counts of domestic battery by strangulation and coercion with force."
