#McFactz: TI SPEAKS, Lil Twist Is In TROUBLE, Karrueche Tran Has An Interview Coming!

tip

The Gaye Family seems like they are not letting up off necks when it comes to copyright infringement. Since the family won $7.4 million from the “Blurred Lines” decision they Gaye’s have filed a motion to “correct” the jury’s verdict by adding Universal Music, Interscope Records, Star Entertainment, and T.I. to the list of infringers. TMZ got a hold of T.I. at the airport and this was his response..

“I don’t know what’s going on, I never really got caught up in that. I have nothing but admiration and respect for the legacy and estate. And I have nothing but support and extreme admiration for my partner Pharrell. Whatever happened, the universe agreed with it. I know that I’m a writer, I’m a creator, I know that I don’t steal from anybody creatively when I make my music. I know that and I think that anybody with common sense is going to be able to see that when they listen to it.

“Whatever it is, that’s out of my hands. Whatever happens, the right thing will always be [me] being exonerated, because I know I did the right thing and I ain’t intend to steal from anybody on any of my material.

Do you think T.I. should be held accountable?

Young Money rapper Lil Twist has a dark cloud over his head. He has been charged with six felonies for an incident that occurred at That’s So Raven star Kyle Massey’s apartment. Twist allegedly beat up Massey’s brother with brass knuckles and stole his wallet and cell phone. Charges include grand theft, burglary, and assault with a deadly weapon. If he is convicted he will face 25 years in prison. Sheesh!

Best of luck to Lil Twist!

karrueche

When news broke that Chris Brown has a baby by another woman his girlfriend Karrueche Tran was quick to cut him off. She sat down with Iyanla Vanzant to give details about their relationship. The interview airs Saturday March 28th at 8pm on OWN.

Iyanla says..

The thing that was so surprising to me is how protective and forgiving she is of Chris. She repeatedly offered that he is only human and humans make mistakes. She said she knows he loves her and she just wishes things could change for him.

I think I am a bit more troubled by his behavior than she is. I am disturbed that he has such a gift and blessing and continues to dishonor God, himself, and women with no accountability. Prison was punishment and punitive. It did not teach responsibility or accountability for his behavior or as the steward of a gift.

Anyway, she made no attempt to bash him and will probably come across as naive and relatable.

Marvin Gaye’s children were awarded nearly $7.4 million dollars on Tuesday after determining that Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams copied music to create Blurred Lines. Blurred Lines was the biggest hit song of 2013. The song Got To Give It Up by Marvin Gaye sounded a little too similar to Blurred Lines. Pharrell Williams told jurors that Gaye’s music was part of the soundtrack of his youth. However Williams said that he did not use any of it to create Blurred Lines. Marvin Gaye died in April 1984 leaving his children copyrights to his music.

Chile…this tea here is HOT! If you haven’t heard you must live under a rock! It has been revealed that Chris Brown is the father of a 9 month old baby by a 31 year old. This would mean that Chris cheated on his ride or die girlfriend Karrueche Tran. Karrueche has been by Chris’s side for a long time now. Sources say Chris is happy to be a father right now. Karrueche jumped on twitter and made it known…

“Listen. One can only take so much. The best of luck to Chris and his family. No baby drama for me.”

Best of luck to these two!

50floyd

50 Cent has LONG money, we all know that! This time 50 is thinking of betting $1.6 million dollars that Floyd will beat Pac-Man on May 2nd. “Champ’s gonna smoke him” he says. 50 also says he spoke to Mayweather in New York recently and they also spoke on the phone. $1.6 million isn’t a lot of money to 50 so even if Floyd loses you know 50’s pockets are still good. Who do you think will win?
