Terrence Howard Sued By AMEX For Unpaid Credit Card Bill

According to Global Grind, American Express is completely fed up with the Red Tails actor’s reluctance to pay his credit card debt and is slapping him with a lawsuit in an effort to recover the unpaid money. The financial service corporation is also requesting that an additional ten percent be paid on top of the money owed. How much money does a person have to owe before American Express gets fed up enough to drag them to court, you ask? Legal documents, which were filed back in November in the Los Angeles Superior Court revealed that the Hustle & Flow actor owes the company $33,474.79. It is also being reported that AMEX is not only filing claims against Terrence as an individual, but also against his company, Al Chemist Productions, Inc. So far, the actor’s legal team has not filed any court documents in response to the claims made by American Express. Hopefully Terrence has the money to pay his bill and mistakenly forgot to send out his payment, although he wouldn’t be the first celebrity who attempted to completely bail on debts owed. The timeframe in which Terrence was given to repay his debt was not revealed; however, one would think that taking Terrence to court was probably AMEX’s last resort in getting him to pay his bill, since I highly doubt the company wants to be making headlines for suing a famous client.

Rihanna Stunned by Intruder Who Broke Into Her Villa

When you’re as big as you want to be, you always have to watch out for those fans who aren’t quite connected to reality.  Rihanna is disturbed after a male fan attempted to enter her villa while she was staying in Barbados.    According to the Sun, the singer and her friends were interrupted when the man worked his way into the house.  The group was sitting by the pool and found themselves alarmed to see the unwanted visitor in the home. The villa has 10 bedrooms, making it easy for an intruder to hide out undetected. Security came onto the scene and got the man out of there fast.  Police were called, but fortunately, the man was already gone.  He was later arrested and questioned, but they only charged him with being a bit overzealous. Earlier in the week, Rihanna donated three items worth a combined total of $1.75 million dollars to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Barbados, where her grandmother died in the cancer unit.   Clara ‘Dolly’ Braithwaite  died earlier this year, and because of Rihanna’s massive gift, the unit has been named after her. “This was my way of giving back to Barbados. I believe that this will have a huge impact. This was all done to save lives, or at least extend them,” she said.   Read More »

Vigalantee The Hip-Hopologist: Fat Joe, Fat Taxes, Fat Problems – Why Do Rappers Get Financially Slammed?

In this interview, Vigalantee The Hip-hopologist from Reason4Rhymes discusses the recent conviction of the rapper Fat Joe for tax evasion.  Joe is going to be headed to prison in the spring and some are wondering, “Why are rappers having so many financial issues?” To think about the matter more deeply, Vigalantee speaks with Wayne Hodges from Mass Appeal News. The two discuss the hip-hop music industry and whether or not the blinging and balling lifestyle leads a lot of artists to put themselves into serious financial problems.   When it comes to money, rappers love to brag about how much they have, even if they don’t have any.  But then, when the IRS comes knocking, that’s when cars, houses, jewels and everything else end up getting repossessed. Is there  way to change this cycle? The interview is below:   Read More »
