The brother of famed rapper Trina, Wilbrent "Gonk" Bain was shot and killed in Miami, Florida this morning.  According to police reports,  Gonk, who was pronounced dead at the scene, was murdered by Ron Dobson, a neighbor he’d been feuding with.   

A neighbor named "Trimel" told the local NBC affiliate, 6 South Florida, "It hit me hard because I just talked to him. This killing has to stop. It has to. All of us grew up together and that’s just senseless."

Trimel suggested that easy access to weapons is an ongoing problem in the area.  "It’s a gun problem more than anything because anyone can just get a gun. I guarantee if you walk around this neighborhood now I bet you you’ll get it."

Though little has been revealed about what ignited the argument between the men, it was reported that Gonk survived a 2008 shooting and had a record of gun possession, burglary, drugs, and domestic violence involving strangulation. 

Police stated that Ron has confessed to the killing and is charged with second-degree murder.

So far…Trina has not spoken publically about her family’s loss.

Kelly Rowland Preps “Year Of The Woman” Album & New Promo Shot + Frank Ocean HITS THE STUDIO With Pharrell & Jay-Z

Singer Kelly Rowland revealed a new website today along with a promo shot and the title of her 4th solo disc. Get the deets inside and see who Frank Ocean is working with…

Actress and singer Kelly Rowland revealed a new website today where she told fans the title of her upcoming disc.  She said,

Im so excited to reveal the title of my fourth solo studio album. For weeks I have been using the hashtag #YOTW which stands for my next album which is titled ‘Year Of the Woman‘. This album is one of my greatest pieces of work and I cannot wait to share it with you guys! xoxo- KR

Kelly spoke to Vegas Magazine about the upcoming project saying,

I am more excited going into it this time than last time because I have a concept. I’m making this album for my ladies, oh, yes, and it is strong. All of the producers I’ve been working with get the concept so much that they brought in a little more aggressive—and sometimes masculine—approach, but there is a really incredible top line: I want to tell women how incredible we are, how our intuition is so spot-on. Sometimes we don’t listen to it, but it is the thing that can actually make us happier.”

Another album though?  We love Kelly so we’ll just say do you boo.  By the way, you can also check out the new Destiny’s Child greatest hits collection Playlist which hits stores today.

*MUG SHOT INSIDE* UH OH! Dwyane Wade’s Ex Siohvaughn ARRESTED, Dwyane Wants Her Visitation TERMINATED!

In a wild turn of events, Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade‘s ex-wife Siohvaughn was arrested over the weekend after refusing to return her sons to Dwyane‘s custody.


Post has been updated with Sioh’s mugshot.  Details inside that are still unfolding just hours before Dwyane plays in tonight’s NBA Finals Game 4…


Dwyane Wade has temporary full custody of his sons Zaire & Zion.  Their mother, Siohvaughn, was given visitation rights.  But this past weekend, she allegedly did not return the boys in accordance with the court order.

Chicago’s Cook County Sheriff’s spokesman Frank Bilecki told The AP that Siohvaughn Funches-Wade was charged with misdemeanor charges–two counts of attempted child abduction, two counts of unlawful visitation interference and one count of resisting arrest this weekend.  Apparently she did not bring the boys to Dwyane’s sister in Chicago on Saturday at the agreed upon 12p time so that they could make a 3p flight to Miami in time for Father’s Day.

Dwyane’s sister called the Sheriff’s office to check on the home when Sioh would not answer calls after several hours.  The filing states that Siohvaughn attempted to leave the home with one of the boys when the Sheriff’s department showed up.

Another woman, Nadgee Alarcon, was also inside the home and was charged with resisting arrest.  And after Dwyane charted a private jet to get his boys to him on Sunday, his eldest son told him that the Alarcon woman "smacked him in the head."

Huff Post reports that Siohvaughn was admitted to a hospital later Saturday night for possible asthma attack.

All of this drama led to Dwyane’s lawyer, James Pritikin, filing an emergency motion in court today (Tuesday) to suspend Sioh’s visitation rights.  A hearing has been set in regards to Siohvaighn, whom Dwyane divorced in 2012, for June 26th, the same day as Game 7 if necessary.

Dwyane said in his motion:

"Once again, S.L. has used our minor children as the proverbial pawns in this contentious dissolution of marriage action," Wade wrote in the filing, using initials to protect identities but referring to his ex-wife. "This court must take action to protect our minor children from further exposure to the present environment S.L. creates while they are in her care and preventing S.L. from exercising her parenting time in a manner that is harmful to our children.

"The minor children have been subjected to great deal of drama/trauma as a result of S.L.’s conduct."

He didn’t seem to let it affect his game Sunday night as he and the Heat beat the Thunder.  Game 4 is tonight.

*UPDATE* TMZ reports Siohvaughn posted her $ 10K bail and has a hearing for her own charges in August.
