Cardi B and Offset cozy up as they take baby Kulture for doctor visit

Cardi B and Offset are getting the hang of their new roles.

A week after welcoming Kulture Kiari Cephus — Cardi B’s first child and Offset’s fourth — on July 10, the rapper posted a sweet Instagram photo of the new parents on mom and dad duty.

In the photo, Cardi cozied up to her husband. She wrote, “Doctors visit with mom & Dad.”

Cardi B, 25, has already been letting fans in on her motherhood journey alongside Offset, 26. Last week, she admitted on Instagram, “It’s been a little hard for me to reply back cause this mommy job requires full day, all day, all night attention.”

    

She also quipped on Twitter, “When parents say ‘if you wake the baby up YOU PUTTING HER BACK TO SLEEP!’ I feel that” and added, “I still can’t believe it, all mines.”

Baby Kulture has already left her mark with a unique name — part of which she shares with her father. The infant’s middle name comes from Offset’s legal first name, Kiari Kendrell Cephus. Her first name may also be inspired by her father’s albums: In 2017 and 2018, Migos released “Culture” and “Culture II.”

Cardi B addressed the couple’s moniker choice on Instagram, writing simply, “Anything else woulda been basic.”

Months before they became parents together, Cardi B and Offset embarked on a different journey: to the altar. In September, the artists secretly wed, though Offset, publicly proposed a month later.

The “Invasion of Privacy” performer first revealed that she was expecting a baby on “Saturday Night Live” in April.

Cardi B was also feeling the love on Monday from actor Will Smith, who made a special congratulatory video for the new mom while abroad in Russia. In the clip, Smith recruited World Cup fans to share their well wishes for the new family of three.

Posting the clip on her own Instagram, Cardi B wrote: “This video made me smile from ear to ear.

“OMMMMGGGGG THIS IS WILL FREAKING SMITH!!!!!! @willsmith,” she continued. “Thank you so much!! Me and my family appreciate it !!Thank you everyone in Russia !!!!! Ommgggi feel so special.”

Dolly Parton gushes over Whitney Houston during interview

The moment Dolly Parton felt she had “arrived as a writer” was the moment she heard Whitney Houston‘s version of “I Will Always Love You” over the car radio. The country legend called up the memory in a sit-down with fellow Southern belle Reese Witherspoon for the new “Shine On With Reese” interview series, and Entertainment Weekly has the first exclusive clip of that conversation.

“She took (the song) to so many levels,” Parton said. “To think that my little song — my little heartfelt, heartbreaking song — could be that big, I felt that I had arrived as a writer.”

Parton wrote and recorded the original “I Will Always Love You” in 1973, and the song was then released as part of her “Jolene” album a year later. The song was written as a farewell to Porter Wagoner, Parton’s partner for the previous seven years whom she was leaving to pursue a solo career.

As Parton explained to Witherspoon, Kevin Costner reached out to the singer-songwriter to see if “I Will Always Love You” could be used in his 1992 film “The Bodyguard,” which starred Houston as a pop singer protected by a former Secret Service member (Costner).

“I sent it out, totally forgot about it,” Parton said, “and then I was driving home and all of a sudden I hear this sound on the radio.” She remembers thinking her “heart was gonna bust” the moment Houston’s a cappella opening came on. “I had to pull over lest I should wreck,” Parton added. “It was the most overwhelming feeling I’ve ever had.”

Witherspoon will interview other “extraordinary women,” like her “A Wrinkle in Time” director Ava DuVernay, Pink, America Ferrera and Kacey Musgraves for “Shine On With Reese.” The series, a joint effort between her media brand Hello Sunshine and AT&T, will explore “what inspires, motivates and gives joy to each of these trailblazers” and hears “their perspectives on ambition, work, family and hopes for the future.”

T.I. surprises wife Tiny with new car full of gifts for birthday

T.I. recently sent his wife birthday wishes by gifting her with a new car and a slew of presents. 

» RELATED: How teen musicians got the chance to perform with T.I.

Tameka “Tiny” Cottle, who has been married to the rapper for nearly eight years, celebrated her 43rd birthday Saturday, and she was showered with gifts from her husband. 

The Xscape member and reality star took to Instagram to show off a black convertible ride loaded with shopping bags from Louboutin.

“Thank you so much Mr. Harris @troubleman31 for showing up on MY ACTUAL birthday & showing out! I really really love this car & all the other nice gifts & I just wanted to tell u how thankful I am,” she wrote in the caption. 

In December 2017, Tiny reportedly filed for divorce. A hearing was scheduled for March 2017, according to People. However, it was removed from the calendar once court officials learned T.I. had never been served with divorce papers.

For months, the two have been spotted together at several public events and family outings. They have three children together, including a two-year-old daughter.

‘Baseless, ill-founded and unjustified’: T.I.’s attorney responds to Henry County accusation

An accusation containing charges of simple assault, public drunkenness and disorderly conduct was filed Friday against Atlanta rapper T.I. in Henry County State Court.

The filing accused Clifford Harris Jr., also known as T.I., of making a verbal threat and acting “in a violent or tumultuous manner” toward security guard Euwan James at the Eagles Landing Country Club in Stockbridge two months ago. The county solicitor general’s office filed the accusation.

RELATED: Police report details events leading to T.I.’s arrest outside gated community

The accusation also alleged Harris “was in an intoxicated condition in a public place, which condition made manifest by his boisterous conduct, profane language, an odor of an alcoholic beverage emitting from his person, and by his own admission of alcohol consumption.”

In a statement emailed to AJC.com, T.I.’s attorney, Steve Sadow, said:

“The misdemeanor charges brought against T.I. are baseless, ill-founded and unjustified. T.I. never threatened or acted in a violent manner towards Euwan James, the security guard. Indeed, we understand the security guard was fired for the way he handled the situation with T.I. We had sincerely hoped that the Henry County Solicitor had better, more important, things to do to serve the Henry County community than prosecute an African American over a verbal dispute during an encounter with a security guard who was asleep at his post and was unwilling to provide his name to T.I. so T.I. could report the guard’s misconduct to his employer.”

Harris was arrested after this altercation, which was prompted by his forgetting his keys, and James’ refusal to let him past the gate.

James said Harris started using profanity and yelled at him to open the gate, according to the Harris County police incident report from May 16.

James eventually opened the gate and let Harris in, but Harris told police James wouldn’t give him his name or his supervisor’s name when asked. 

After T.I. parked his car at his home, he walked back to try to get James’ name, the report said. James said T.I. threatened him and said “come outside so we can deal with this man to man.”

At some point, T.I. called his friend, Marquinarius Holmes, 40, of Stockbridge, to join in, who was then arrested on outstanding charges out of Clayton County for not having proof of car insurance, the sheriff’s office told AJC.com back in May. 

Harris was released from the Henry County Jail later that morning after posting $2,250 bond. He did not appear before a judge.

Sadow told AJC.com in a phone interview that Friday’s accusation “is simply a document filed by the prosecutor alleging the charges. There is no grand jury or independent body that made the decision ... it doesn’t require anything more than crafting a piece of paper and signing it.”

Remember 2 Chainz's Pink Trap House? It's going to be torn down.

Whatever happened to the Pink Trap House? You remember it, right?

A little more than a year ago, Atlanta-based rapper 2 Chainz leased an unremarkable home at 1530 Howell Mill Road in west Midtown and dumped a coat of paint on it that resembled Pepto Bismol. He etched the word “TRAP” in black lettering under the gable of the craftsman-style bungalow and parked a wide-body classic sedan in front of it. That too, along with a stove placed in the yard, was covered in pink.

It was all to promote his newest album, “Pretty Girls Like Trap Music.” The record was a success, debuting at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart and eventually becoming certified gold. Several critics called it his best album yet. Fans flocked to the Pink Trap House is droves.

Soon, the old house will be turned into dust and rubble — only memories, selfies from the fans who took photos in front of it, will remain.

“My plan eventually is to tear it down,” said Matt Rohrig of Cartel Properties, which owns the house. “I’m not leasing it out long term.”

To Rohrig and Cartel Properties, the 0.17 acres of dirt that the home sits on is more valuable than the house. According to Fulton County property records, the land at the address is valued at $237,600 while the house is valued at $194,000.

The house is still standing, for now. It is bland, white, vacant and looks beaten down. Unless you’re looking for it, you won’t notice it. Without its pink coat, the house blends in with similar looking buildings along the road.

Walk up to what used to be the Pink Trap House now and you’ll find all the doors locked, bars on the windows and a porch that needs a sweep. There’s a Cartel Properties sign stuck in the window that says the home is available, but don’t be fooled. The one-time Pink Trap House is not for sale.

Rohrig says he has no timetable for demolishing it.

Built in 1940, the house has five rooms and a total of 899 square feet of residential space. It also features a full basement and a covered porch. According to realtor.com, the home last sold in 2017 for $450,000. Before then, it was sold in 2008 for $392,000. It is zoned as part of a commercial service district. Currently, it’s nestled between another vacant building and Sweet Samba Sugar & Wax Bar.

Torwa Joe, 38, who works at the wax bar, has bittersweet feelings about the Pink Trap House going away.

“The idea was genius, but Howell Mill has gotten so congested,” Joe said. “It was a bit of a nuisance.”

Tauheed Epps — Mr. Chainz’s birth name — grew up in College Park and attended North Clayton High School. At 6-foot-5, he had a brief college basketball career, playing at Alabama State University. Epps began his rap career shortly after college, returning to metro Atlanta to spit bars under the moniker “Tity Boi” with the group “Playaz Circle.” He eventually went solo and changed his stage name to 2 Chainz.

In 2017, he won his first Grammy for Best Rap Performance, for a collaboration with Chance the Rapper and Lil Wayne called “No Problem.” Shortly before taking home the award, he announced that “Pretty Girls Like Trap Music” would be his fourth studio album.

The album dropped on Friday, June 16, 2017. It’s unclear when exactly 2 Chainz and his team started leasing the home, but photos of the Pink Trap House first appeared on his Instagram page on June 12, with the rapper and his son posing in front of it.

Coach Tek, 2 Chainz’s manager, told the AJC last year that they transformed the house in 24 hours, covering it in bright pink paint inside and out, putting furniture and etching the track list for “Pretty Girls Like Trap Music” inside the home.

“We wanted it to look like Atlanta. We wanted it to look like what you would typically see architectural-wise for a traditional Atlanta home, which is always ratch, has one floor and three bedrooms with bars on the windows and the doors,” Tek said.

A listening party was held there on the day of the album release, and people showed up to the home for weeks. Some came to take photos and pose in front of the pink car or stove in the front yard, others came for events at the house. The Pink Trap House hosted art galleries, paint-and-sip events and church services. At one time, it was turned into a free HIV testing center.

“It was a hell of a marketing technique while it was there,” Rohrig said.

2 Chainz also filmed a music video there for his song “Door Swangin” which shows people partying in the front yard and others playing cards and smoking inside.

Rohrig said that 2 Chainz and his crew were “good tenants” and took care of the property while they were there. Before the lease was up on July 7, they repainted it white. Cartel Properties did not say how much 2 Chainz or his management company, Street Execs, paid to lease the home.

While the Pink Trap House turned into a social media sensation, it didn’t come without problems. Nearby businesses complained about visitors to the Pink Trap House using their parking lots. Other neighbors complained about noise.

Joe was working next door at the wax bar while the Pink Trap House was at the peak of its powers, and she said the business often got bombarded with people wanting to use their bathroom or parking lot.

“It was cool to see people at the events, but it was just too crowded,” she said.

Still, Joe has good memories of the Pink Trap House too. In the lobby of the wax bar, there’s a small picture of the Pink Trap House, a one-time Atlanta hip-hop monument.

Said Joe, “A year later, we’ll never forget it.”

Friday the 13th: What’s so unlucky about 13?

If the thought of Friday the 13th sends shivers down your spine, don’t worry. You’re not alone.

The fear of Friday the 13, or just the number 13, is a common one. So common, in fact, there’s a name for it.

>> Read more trending news 

How the number has come to be seen as unlucky varies, but there is a rather unnerving amount of historical events that have likely led to the misfortune under which 13 suffers. Here are a few.

When it was unlucky

  • Pope John Paul II was shot and nearly died on May 13, 1981. 
  • There were 13 people at the Last Supper, and, in case you missed the first connection, it’s believed that Judas Iscariot - the disciple who betrayed Jesus Christ - was the 13th man to take his place at the table.
  • Jesus was crucified on a Friday.
  • A 13-year-old boy in England was struck by lightning on Friday the 13th at 1:13 p.m. (in military time, 13:13).
  • On Oct. 13, 1307, there was a mass arrest and execution of members of the Knights Templar. The Knights Templar or the Poor Fellow-Soldiers of Christ were anything but. Members were among the wealthiest and most powerful of Christian military orders. They are credited by many with establishing one of the earliest finance systems.
  • In not so Jolly Ol’ England, Friday was the traditional day for public hangings. Insult to injury – there were 13 steps up to the gallows, generally.

When it was lucky

  • The bus number 13 in London was never damaged during the blitz of the Second World War.
  • Apollo 13 was a 1970 NASA Moon mission famous for being a "successful failure." The accident that crippled the spacecraft happened on April 13.
  • It was on the jersey of Miami Dolphins Hall of Famer Dan Marino.
  • It was on the jersey of Los Angeles Lakers, and Philadelphia 76ers Hall of Famer Wilt Chamberlain.
  • A baker's dozen means you get 13 of something – or one more than a standard dozen. The down side is it is sometimes called a “Devil’s dozen.” (think donuts)
  • The visions of the Virgin of Fátima were said to have appeared on the 13th day of every month for six months in 1917.
  • It’s singer Taylor Swift’s lucky number.  

Where 13 is not used

  • There’s no 13th floor in many high-rise buildings.
  • There is often no 13th floor in a hospital, and airports generally don’t have a Gate 13.
  • In triathlons, the number 13 is not used.
  • The number was not used in Formula One from 1977 to 2013.
  • While there are 19 counties in Norway they are numbered 1-20 because there is no number 13 county.

13 in general

  • Aluminum has the atomic number 13.
  • 13 is the sixth prime number.
  • It is the smallest emirp or a prime number that is a different prime when its reversed - 31.
  • Fear of the number 13 is called Triskaidekaphobia.
  • Fear of Friday the 13th is Paraskevidekatriaphobia or, sometimes, Friggatriskaidekaphobia. 
  • Fear of the number 17 – the number of letters in Triskaidekaphobia – is Heptadecaphobia.
  • The Aztecs considered thirteen a sacred number. It was the number that represented time. It stood for completion.
  • In Tarot, 13 is the card of “Death.” The card stands for transformation – ending something and starting something new.
  • There are 13 stripes on the American flag.
  • There are 13 stars in the Great Seal of the United States.

LeSean McCoy denies accusations of domestic violence, child abuse

Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy has denied accusations of domestic violence and child abuse through a post on social media.

According to an ESPN report, an unidentified Instagram user posted graphic images that showed a woman with cuts and bruises on her face. In the caption, the user accused the Bills running back of domestic violence, child abuse, animal cruelty, and performance-enhancing drug use.

McCoy denied the claims on his personal Instagram account on Tuesday. 

Aug. 28, 1955: The day Emmett Till launched a movement

Few dates outside of Christmas, Thanksgiving or Independence Day mean anything, especially if they are random.

Take August 28.

» RELATED: Justice Department to reopen 1955 slaying of Emmett Till after ‘new information’

On that day in 1955, a 14-year-old boy was snatched out of his bed in Money, Miss., by a group of white men. The “crime” that he had committed was allegedly flirting with a white woman.

By the time Emmett Till’s battered body washed up three days later in the Tallahatchie River, his death – according to many historians – would spark the beginning of the modern civil rights movement. Till’s mother would insist on having an open casket at her son’s funeral, so that the world could witness the horror.

» RELATED: ‘The Blood of Emmett Till’

A 10-year-old Shirley Franklin was living in Philadelphia at the time and said Till’s murder radicalized her.

“We talked about it as a family, especially his mother’s decision to have an open casket,” said Franklin, who would go on to become the mayor of Atlanta. “I couldn’t imagine a child being killed and what the impact of having an open casket would mean.”

Artist creates animation of Childish Gambino’s ‘This Is America’ using 1980s Apple computer

Several people have praised Childish Gambino for his “This Is America” music video, and one designer is paying tribute with a pixelated animation he created on an old computer.

Indonesian illustrator Pinot, also known as Wahyu Ichwandardi, recently took to social media to share his adaptation of the video, documenting his progress in a series of tweets. 

He began in June and revealed that he’d been using an old Macintosh SE computer from the 1980s to work on his design. After drawing every frame in an old program called MacPaint, he uploaded the images into an old piece of software called MacroMind to animate it.

"Every single pixel matters,” he tweeted.

The artist, who currently lives in New York City, also told his followers he closely examined Sherrie Silver, who choreographed the video for Gambino, also known as Donald Glover, to get the dance sequencing just right. 

As of early July, Pinot had created 470 frames and 38 seconds of Gambino's pixelated dancing, posting it to Instagram. The upload went viral, garnering more than 163,000 likes and nearly 3 million views.

Video of Mel B being groped on live TV in 2014 resurfaces online

A video of Mel B being groped on live television has resurfaced, sparking outrage across social media. 

E! News reported that the video, posted on YouTube in December 2014, is from “The Xtra Factor,” companion show to the British reality TV show “The X Factor.” It reappeared online over the weekend. It features Mel B and fellow judges Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh sitting on a couch being interviewed by Sarah-Jane Crawford.

>> Read more trending news 

As they chat, Walsh begins patting Mel B on her behind. At one point, he grabs her enough to get her attention. The musician stops the conversation immediately and says, “Hold on a second. Why are you grabbing my butt?” as she moves away from him. 

Walsh replies, “I’m looking out for Mel.”

Crawford appears to try to jokingly respond to the situation, saying, “Louis! Hands where we can see them please!”

“Honestly, you’re safe,” Cowell jokes.

Mel B, who still appears uncomfortable, scoots away from Walsh and says, “Inappropriate.” 

Walsh continues to laugh and Mel B smirks, looking to someone off camera.

A Twitter user uploaded the recording Sunday with the caption “sexual harassment on live TV folks.” It garnered nearly 150,000 retweets and more than 265,000 likes.

Others tweeted their opinions of the video, referring to Walsh’s behavior as inappropriate.

Others thought Mel B overreacted. Some said that Walsh is gay -- something Walsh has not addressed publicly -- and believed Mel embarrassed him. 

A few said the incident was just one of the many examples why the #MeToo movement is needed. 

Walsh and Mel B have not commented on the video. 

Former Bengals player Pacman Jones assaulted by employee at Atlanta airport, police say

Police said former Cincinnati Bengals football player Adam “Pacman” Jones was assaulted by an airport contract worker at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta Tuesday.

The worker, identified as Frank Ragin, made a gesture toward Jones at about 10 p.m. Tuesday, Atlanta police said. Jones confronted the man about what he meant by the gesture and the two began to argue, according to police. 

>> Read more trending news 

Police said the argument occurred on Concourse B near Gate B6. 

Ragin is accused of punching Jones and injuring his face. He is also accused of striking Jones’ companion, a woman who has not been identified, and injuring her hand. 

Police said Jones, 34, then pushed Ragin to the ground. Police eventually determined Ragin was the primary aggressor. 

Ragin, who was charged with two counts of battery, was transported to Grady Memorial Hospital to be treated for his injuries.

Ragin works for ABM, a contractor for the airport that deals with building maintenance and facility services.

Jones and his companion declined medical treatment.

Jones, who was drafted in 2005 out of West Virginia by the Tennessee Titans, has also played for the Dallas Cowboys and Cincinnati Bengals. The cornerback played in nine games for the Bengals last season. He is currently a free agent.

LeSean McCoy's ex-girlfriend victim of targeted assault at Milton home

A woman who was once in a romantic relationship with Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy was taken to a hospital Tuesday morning after she was assaulted during an invasion at McCoy’s north Fulton County home.

Milton police are investigating the incident, which happened on Hickory Pass near the Cherokee County line around 3:18 a.m. Tuesday. Captain Charles Barstow said a lone intruder entered the “specifically targeted” home.

McCoy’s involvement in the incident remains unclear. He has twice sought to have the woman, his ex-girlfriend Delicia Cordon, 34, evicted from the home, according to court records. An Atlanta-based attorney for McCoy, Jacoby Hudson, said that the NFL running back was in Miami on Tuesday and told Channel 2 Action News that McCoy “had nothing to do” with the incident.

NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said the league is "reviewing the matter."

In a brief message on his Instagram page, McCoy, 29, said, “For the record, the totally baseless and offensive claims made against me today on social media are completely false. Furthermore, I have not had any direct contact with any of the people involved in months.”

The claims that McCoy speaks of came from an unknown user on Instagram, whose post went viral Tuesday morning. Under the name “miamor_i_adore” the user posted photos of a woman she said was Cordon. One image showed Cordon in jeans and a tank top, while the other was a purported close-up of her face, which was battered, bloodied and bruised. The message accompanying the photos accused McCoy of domestic violence, child abuse, animal abuse and taking performance enhancing drugs. The post was later deleted and the user briefly made her account private.

Specifically, the user said McCoy “beat” his son for “peeing in the bed,” beat his dog into “kidney failure,” and claimed he used “illegal steroids” and “needles.” The user also called him “the devil” and an “animal” in the post.

McCoy has never failed a test for performance enhancing drugs while in the NFL, according to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network.

Another attorney for McCoy, Michael LaScala, told the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle, “It looks awful but (McCoy) had nothing to do with it.”

Around 6 p.m. Tuesday, the user created a new Instagram post, saying, “And for the record Delicia’s lawyer forced me to remove that post. I stand by what I said. I’ve personally addressed @LeSeanMcCoy on everything that was stated many many times over the year. Lie to these people if you want Shady, but you know I know everything.”

Another woman claiming to be Cordon’s friend, Cicely Billups, also posted the images on her Facebook page and claimed that men were sent “in her house to pistol whip and rob her.”

While Milton police released little information, Cordon’s Atlanta-based lawyer, Tanya Mitchel Graham sent a statement to the AJC, saying that her client was assaulted while sleeping in the home she and McCoy shared in Milton around 3 a.m. Tuesday.

Graham says that the “male assailant” entered the home with “no signs of forced entry” and demanded specific items of jewelry that was given to Cordon by McCoy. Graham said that McCoy had requested these pieces of jewelry back on “multiple occasions” and suggested to Cordon that “she could be robbed” because the jewelry was so expensive. Police did say that the intruder “requested specific items” from the victim.

Graham added that Cordon was hit in the face with a firearm “multiple times” and she suffered injuries to her head, face and arms.

According to audio from a dispatch call obtained by TMZ from the incident, a 911 dispatcher called for police and firefighters to respond to a woman at McCoy’s home who was “hit in the head and locked in the bathroom.”

Graham said that McCoy did not contact Cordon to check on her condition or to see what was going on at the residence.

Milton police did not provide any description of the suspect. A second female victim at the home suffered minor injuries, police said. A police report from the incident was not available Tuesday.

First eviction attempt

According to Fulton County property records, the home on Hickory Pass was purchased on Oct. 18, 2016 by LMK Trust Management for $822,000. The trust has a Buffalo, New York address and the initials match McCoy’s, whose middle name is Kamel. A spokesperson with the city of Milton said that McCoy has previously verbally confirmed to Milton police that he is the homeowner.

The two-story home sits on 1.13 acres and features five bed rooms and five and a half bathrooms. It was built in 2008. The total value of the home is $1.07 million, according to Fulton County property records.

Graham said that Cordon and her children have lived in the home with McCoy since Oct. 2016. Months later, McCoy tried to have her evicted, according to documents obtained by the AJC from the Magistrate Court of Fulton County.

McCoy filed to have Cordon evicted from the home on July 3, 2017. The court document states that McCoy and Cordon were “no longer in relationship” and McCoy had allowed her to stay in the home “rent-free” for five months. However, on July 6, 2017, the Fulton County Marshal’s Department told McCoy it couldn’t fulfill his eviction request because the same addresses were listed for he and Cordon. If the defendant and plaintiff share the same address, the unit, room or suite occupied by the defendant must be identified to facilitate the eviction.

Cordon remained in the home. In February of this year, she posted a photo of herself with McCoy at what looked like a bar. The couple is smiling. In other Facebook posts, she posted videos of him talking on NFL Network.

On her Instagram page, which was recently set to private, Cordon says she is a fashion designer. She has appeared in music videos for Pharrell, John Legend, Ludacris, Kanye West and Jagged Edge. She was once married to Marcus Vick, the brother of former Falcons and Eagles quarterback Michael Vick.

Second try at eviction

Court documents show that McCoy tried to have Cordon “and all others” evicted again on June 6 of this year. On behalf of McCoy, the eviction was filed by Tamarcus “TJ” Porter, who was teammates with McCoy at the University of Pittsburgh.

On June 22, Graham, Cordon’s lawyer, filed to have the court disregard the dispossessory notice. Graham said that Cordon and McCoy were “discussing marriage” on May 28, and on May 29 McCoy bought Cordon a “substantial gift.”

McCoy left Georgia on May 30 to attend organized team activities in Buffalo with the Bills and Cordon left Georgia on May 31 for her sister’s graduation in Virginia, Graham said.

On June 1, Graham says, McCoy had some of his friends remove Cordon’s things from the home. Because of cameras in the home, Cordon saw this happening on her cellphone and called police, who halted McCoy’s crew from removing the items. Graham also claims that McCoy had the electricity cut off to the residence.

Graham said that McCoy had security cameras removed from the home after June 1. He later had a new security system installed, but did not give Cordon access to it, Graham says.

Graham argued that the eviction should be dismissed because it was served to Cordon’s 16-year-old son on June 11, and the eviction was filed by Porter, who is not a licensed attorney in any state. Graham said that the notice was “falsified” by Porter.

On the eviction notice filed by Porter, the word defendant and McCoy’s first name are misspelled.

The eviction case was scheduled to be in court Tuesday. Kiarra Brown, an associate attorney with Graham’s firm, attended the hearing and it was granted a continuance.

Drew Rosenhaus is McCoy’s agent, but he has not spoken on Tuesday’s incident. He declined comment to The Athletic and did not respond to a request for comment from Pro Football Talk.

McCoy has been accused of assault previously. In 2013, a woman sued him claiming that McCoy assaulted her and then kicked her off a party bus. In 2016, McCoy was investigated for his involvement in an alleged incident outside a Philadelphia nightclub.

Milton police are continuing their investigation and are urging anyone with information about the incident to contact Detective Christopher Bradshaw at christopher.bradshaw@cityofmiltonga.us.

McCoy’s 30th birthday is Thursday. The 5-foot-11, 210 lbs. native of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles with the 53rd overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft. The Eagles traded him to the Bills in 2015. He is a six-time Pro Bowler, a two-time All-Pro selection and ranks 29th all-time in career rushing yards with 10,092. McCoy has tallied 81 career touchdowns.

In a statement, the Buffalo Bills said, “We have spoken to LeSean and have been in contact with the National Football League. We will continue to gather information.”

Whitney Houston's mom expresses 'shock' over allegations singer was molested

Whitney Houston's mother says allegations that her superstar daughter and her son were molested by her niece are "unfathomable."

» Documentary: Whitney Houston was sexually abused by cousin Dee Dee Warwick

» First trailer for estate-approved Whitney Houston documentary released

In a statement to People magazine on behalf of herself and sister, singer Dionne Warwick, Cissy Houston revealed they first learned of the claims two days before the documentary "Whitney" premiered in May.

In the film, Whitney Houston's longtime assistant said the singer told her that cousin Dee Dee Warwick molested her as a child; Whitney Houston's oldest brother said he, too, was molested.

» Who was Dee Dee Warwick? Singer accused of sexually abusing Whitney Houston 

In the statement, Cissy Houston says Dee Dee Warwick may have had her "personal challenges," but the idea that she would have molested the children is "overwhelming and unfathomable."

Dee Dee Warwick died in 2008. Whitney Houston died in 2012.

» Pat Houston delves deep into the details of ‘Whitney’

Cissy Houston and Dionne Warwick’s full statement, from People magazine:

“My niece Dionne Warwick and I make this statement to raise our voices above the din surrounding the release of the film, Whitney. Although the film is marketed as a Houston Family approved/endorsed project, neither my son, Michael, Dionne nor I knew of the allegations of abuse, the direction the film would take, until two days before the screening at Cannes.

“To begin we want to state clearly that the horror of what victims of sexual abuse experience is unimaginable. We make no attempt to minimize the pain, the trauma and perhaps lifelong damage to the psyche of abuse victims. We understand and acknowledge that there are no rules governing a person’s reaction to trauma and every person reacts differently. By this statement we do not intend to defend, condone or excuse the crime of molestation.

“We cannot, however, overstate the shock and horror we feel and the difficulty we have believing that my niece Dee Dee Warwick (Dionne’s sister) molested two of my three children.

“I’ve been told—as justification for the invasive theme of this film—that Whitney was a public person and therefore the public has a right to know any and everything about her. I say, NO, she was a famous person … a singer, an actress, a quiet but generous philanthropist. She wasn’t running for office, asking for money or trying to win the right to run anyone’s life. Her job does not entitle the “public” to know every intimate detail of her life beyond what she herself revealed during her lifetime. Although she spoke about her struggle with drugs, the interventions, her daughter Krissi and issues in her marriage, she never PUBLICLY spoke about her father’s stealing from her or revealed any claim that she had been molested. IF she was molested I do not believe she would have wanted it to be revealed for the first time to thousands, maybe millions of people in a film.

“I know the woman who was identified as Whitney’s “close confidante”. If she was my daughter’s “close confidante” it would seem she chose to betray Whitney’s confidence by publicizing rumors and hearsay. In any case Dionne, Michael and I do not know her the way we knew and loved Dee Dee Warwick. Dee Dee may have had her personal challenges but the idea that she would have molested my children is overwhelming and for us unfathomable. We cannot reconcile the Public’s need to know about Whitney’s life as justification for invasion of her privacy or the charge against Dee Dee, a charge which neither Whitney nor Dee Dee is here to deny, refute or affirm. Neither I, Dionne, nor my son Michael who was very close to his sister, and in the film is VERY candid about their drug use, has ever heard these allegations; we have never heard anything remotely connected to the crimes charged against Dee Dee in the film. How can that be fair to my daughter, to Dee Dee, or to our family?

“I spent many years in recording studios (sometimes with Dionne and/or Dee Dee) where I earned my living. I also went “on the road” with my group The Sweet Inspirations to try to help provide a good life for my family BUT my children always came first in my heart and in my life. When I was away they did not stay with four or five different families; they stayed at home where their longtime babysitter, Phyllis, or my dear friend Bae or their father took care of them. In all the years I traveled Dee Dee, who was 21 years older than Whitney, NEVER BABYSAT for them.

“Dionne’s mom, my oldest sister Lee, was there for me after my mother died when I was eight years old, and during some of the darkest times of my young life. Lee died several years ago and although I miss her every day I am comforted by the knowledge that she is not here to live this experience

“How I wish I could ask Dee Dee and Nippy what happened, but this film distinguishes itself from the other films about her by spreading rumor, innuendo and hearsay; leaving questions to which I’ll never have the answers.

“Dionne and I are part of a family whose members have always worked hard for themselves and their children to be successful. The goal of most parents is to help their children achieve more than they did. The film treats my family’s aspirations with the heavy handedness of people who are viewing an African American family through a lens lacking in cultural sensibilities. Like most parents we gave our children names we liked … Gary Joseph, Michael Blair and our longed-for baby girl, Whitney Elizabeth, not for any other reason. We did not name our daughter because it was the name of a character in a “WHITE SITCOM” or because we were striving to be considered middle class as alleged in the film. I loved the name Whitney and Elizabeth was her grandmother’s name.

“I am heartbroken that despite all she accomplished fans and haters alike are left with the notion that she lived her life as a victim. She made mistakes and in the last few years she did live her life in the grip of the drugs that drove her and all the consequences of that, both as a woman and as a mother. She loved Krissi with all her heart and she did the best she could as Krissi’s mother, but being in a struggle with drugs is inconsistent with being a great mother. She faced challenges in her life, exacerbated by fame, divorce and family issues but she was not a victim.

“After people have seen the film they will draw their own conclusions and we are not trying to change that. We just want people to know there is another side. While the filmmakers certainly had the legal right to make this film, I wonder at the moral right. “

Footage of Mel B being groped on live TV resurfaces online

A clip of Mel B being groped on live television has resurfaced, sparking outrage across social media. 

» RELATED: MeToo: A timeline of 2018's sexual harassment scandal

Earlier this week, a 2014 video from the British show “The X Factor” appeared online. It features Mel B and the other judges Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh sitting on a couch discussing the series. 

As they chat, Walsh begins patting Mel B on her buttock. When she notices, she stops the conversation immediately and says, “Hold on a second ... Why are you grabbing my butt,” as she moves away from him. 

Walsh replies, “I’m looking out for Mel.”

A Twitter user uploaded the recording Sunday with the caption “sexual harassment on live TV folks.” It garnered nearly 150,000 retweets and more than 265,000 likes.

Many also flooded the comments section with their opinions, referring to the behavior as inappropriate.

Others thought Mel B overreacted. Some noted that Walsh is gay and believed Mel “embarrassed” him.

Actress Erika Alexander (‘Get Out,’ Maxine on ‘Living Single’) in Atlanta July 11-12 to promote new media company Color Farm

Originally posted Monday, July 9, 2018 by RODNEY HO/rho@ajc.com on his AJC Radio & TV Talk blog

Erika Alexander has been a busy actress over the past three decades though her role as attorney Maxine Shaw on Fox’s “Living Single” from the 1990s remains her most iconic. 

Most recently, she was in the 2017 hit film “Get Out” as an FBI agent mocking Lil Rel Howery’s TSA agent for his cockamamie theory about his friend being kidnapped by white folks and being enslaved. 

She has also been active in politics, supporting Hillary Clinton during the 2016 race and landing a spot on the dais to speak at the Democratic National Convention.

Alexander recently teamed up with former Google executive Ben Arnon to launch Color Farm, a multi-platform content company. (She met him while on the campaign trail.)

She is coming to Atlanta this week as part of a 10-city tour to host a series of panel discussions on inclusion in media and seeking projects from creators of color through an initiative called Keep It Colorful. 

Alexander’s company is collaborating with Black & Sexy TV, a progressive streaming service, and Seed & Spark, a streaming service seeking diverse voices. 

On Wednesday night, she will have a public discussion with Stacey Abrams, the Democratic candidate for Georgia governor who Alexander considers a friend. (The event is already sold out.)

“She’s a creator,” Alexander said, noting Abrams’ romance novels under a pen name. “We bonded on that level. I campaigned for her in Los Angeles last year.” 

Indeed, Abrams has courted Hollywood and many actresses have been receptive, including Tracee Ellis Ross, Rashida Jones and Uzo Aduba. They all took a bus tour with Abrams in May. And she has been vocally supportive of the film and TV tax credits that have brought hundreds of productions into the state the past decade. 

Alexander, in the meantime, is in super creator mode. Her company Color Farm, which seeks a broad array of voices among its creators, has already signed a deal with Lionsgate for an untitled horror/thriller written by Alexander. She is creating a “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” spinoff with Joss Whedon. And she’s developing a detective series with Jordan Peele, who created “Get Out.” 

“I’ve been in the business 34 years,” she said. “You realize you’re a tool, a work for hire. You ultimately want to be one of the toolmakers, someone who can build things. We need to write ourselves into our own futures.”

She wants to turn Color Farm into the “Motown of film, television and tech. We want to create a bridge between the street and mainstream.”

She then added: “I think everybody can feel this energy happening geopolitically. We are in a space where creatives will make a difference. Amid all this vitriol and rhetoric, artists emerge.”

Two of her “Living Single” castmates will show up on Thursday for panel discussions at Plaza Theatre in the Poncey-Highland area: Kim Fields and T.C. Carson, both of whom live locally. (You can sign up here.)

Alexander said she’s proud of the impact her “Living Single” character Maxine Shaw had on many African-American women. “That character was so profoundly inspiring and had a real effect on people’s careers,” she said. “A lot of people in politics and the law.” She said Abrams is one of those people. 

8 Atlanta spots where the OWN hit ‘Greenleaf’ is filmed

The OWN hit “Greenleaf” chronicles the drama and faith of a fictional Memphis megachurch, but the careful viewer will notice that the city of Atlanta stars in the series alongside actors Keith David, Lynn Whitfield and Oprah Winfrey. 

»RELATED: OWN's 'Greenleaf,' shot in Atlanta, gets third season

The show, which premiered in June 2016 with 3 million overnight viewers (the second strongest ratings for a new scripted show that year), is produced for OWN by Lionsgate, which also shoots “Step Up: High Water” and “Dear White People” in Atlanta. 

When Season 3 premieres on August 28 and 29, numerous Atlanta locations will form the backdrop for the Greenleaf family's scandals. The return of Pastor Grace, played by Merle Dandridge, promises to unleash turbulent forces and the addition of new cast member Patti LaBelle will likely break the internet.

While casting calls for extras are regularly spotted on casting sites, shooting locations often remain secret until the very last minute. Filming at Juicy Joint in Decatur, for example, was especially secretive: "We didn't find out until the day before the shoot that Oprah would actually be on location and were sworn to secrecy," co-owner Wendell Robinson told On Common Ground News.

"She came in, greeted us and got right to work." 

Being selected as a shooting location made a real impact, Robinson said. "

Atlanta has tons of bars and we are honored that they chose a small bar like ours. It is so uplifting to have an opportunity like this come to our neighborhood, where homelessness and re-gentrification run rampant. I think that says a lot about the potential of our community."

In addition to her role as producer, Oprah Winfrey appears in the series as Mavis McCready, the sister of Lady Mae Greenleaf and a close confidante of Grace, the bishop's estranged daughter. Mavis runs a nightclub that might look familiar to Atlantans: Cigar City Club was the location for club shots.

Before Season 3 debuts in August, keep an eye out for these eight Atlanta locations:

Eagle Rock Studios

6205 Best Friend Road, Norcross

All three seasons of Greenleaf have been filmed at Eagle Rock, according to location manager Patrick Rofoli. 

"We have a portion of the Greenleaf Mansion built on stage, along with the offices and hallways of the churches, including an amazing coffee shop that we added this season to the church set."

The parsonage and various swing sets are all also shot on various Eagle Rock stages. "Both Norcross and Gwinnett County are film-ready communities with great support from the citizens and the government," Rofoli added.

House of Hope Atlanta 

4650 Flat Shoals Pkwy, Decatur

This huge, beautiful church has featured in all three seasons as lead character Bishop James Greenleaf's home church, Calvary Fellowship. Organized more than 138 years ago as a Sunday School and prayer meeting group, it now ministers to five generations under the leadership of senior pastor/teacher Dr. E. Dewey Smith, Jr. 

Atlanta Coliseum

2075 Market St., Duluth

For now, we'll have to guess what brings the series' characters to this large music venue in Episode 303. Ordinarily, the site hosts concerts like the Farruko World Tour on July 6 and the Cosculluela Tycoon Tour on Aug. 23. 

Gwinnett County Jail

2900 University Pkwy, Lawrenceville

Someone is aparently going to jail in Season 3 of “Greenleaf” (and someone else will probably visit them there for a very dramatic conversation). Scenes for Episodes 307 and 308 were shot at the Gwinnett County Jail. Operated by the Gwinnett County Sheriff's Department, it has the capacity for more than 2,700 offenders.

Wages & Sons Funeral Home

1031 Lawrenceville Highway, Lawrenceville

The upcoming season of Greenleaf will involve the fictional Thompson Casket & Funeral Service, filmed at the family-owned Wages & Sons Funeral Home, which has served metro Atlanta's funeral and crematory needs for more than 50 years.

City of Norcross

Locations include 53 Born St. and 390 Wingo St.

Memphis will look a lot like a Norcross neighborhood in the later-season episodes that feature Percy, Coralie and Grace in home settings.

TPC Sugarloaf

2595 Sugarloaf Club Drive, Duluth

This exclusive golf course outside the Atlanta suburb of Duluth will be transformed into the fictional Sommer Gate Assisted Living facility in Episode 309.

Noble Fin Restaurant

5260 Peachtree Pkwy, Peachtree Corners

If you want to dine like the characters in “Greenleaf,” check out Noble Fin. But don't expect Memphis-style barbecue! In real life, this Episode 313 location is best known for its oysters (they even have an Oyster Happy Hour) and its chef-driven fine dining. 

Summer Guide OTP edition is a seasonal series from The Atlanta Journal Constitution that highlights some of the best dining and outdoor experiences taking place outside of Atlanta’s perimeter.
