Sean Kingston is already set to make his first big acting debut playing the late Notorious B.I.G in the upcoming film on the slain rapper:
The singer, who is dominating the charts with summer hit Beautiful Girls, has landed the lead role in the movie, which is being produced by Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs.
Kingston says, “When I first heard about that movie, it was through management. My management told me about it and you know I had auditioned for it and I met with the director and I nailed it and he gave me a shot now at being in the movie.”
Notorious B.I.G.’s mother Voletta Wallace, and his two former managers, Wayne Barrow and Mark Pitts, played a key role in casting and were keen to sign-up an unknown star for the coveted role. SOURCE
Interesting choice, wonder what Biggie’s fans think about it…
EL DEBARGE IS LOCKED UP…
El DeBarge, most known for his 80s fame with the DeBarge family and solo hits was arrested yesterday for domestic violence charges and outstanding warrents:
The singer, born Eldra DeBarge, was initially taken into custody early Sunday accused of domestic violence. The L.A. County District Attorney rejected the charge, but the crooner had a bunch of outstanding warrants including vandalism, drugs and driving with a suspended license according to authorities.
None of the infractions allow for the posting of bail, which means DeBarge will remain in custody until a hearing is scheduled. READ MORE
Man, I love me some El DeBarge but, this family has been through some stuff. Go to Vibe.com to get a history lesson.
BISHOP WEEKS GETS LOVE FROM HIS CHURCH
We’ve posted updates on Amy Wino’s drugged out relationship, but I wanted to update you guys on the church world’s latest surrounding Juanita Bynum and Bishop Weeks. After allegedly choking and beating down his wife last week, Bishop Weeks turned himself in and was set free with bond. He explained the situation to his church this past Sunday:
Juanita Bynum’s estranged husband is blaming the devil for accusations that he attacked her last week in Atlanta.
Thomas Weeks appeared in front of the congregation at his church on Sunday, expressing appreciation for prayers and support that he and Bynum have received. Weeks said he refused to stop attending church just because “certain things” were going on…
One churchgoer says he’s disappointed about the allegations but says he respects Weeks for “being man enough to show his face. SOURCE“
