Celebrity Legal Battles
Maybe this post should be called "B.A.F.F.L.E.D. is BAFFLED!"
Rap star T.I. and his R&B/reality star wife Tameka "Tiny" Cottle-Harris, were arrested in Los Angeles yesterday on suspicion of drug possession. The couple was pulled over on a traffic stop when the smell of marijuana tipped off cops. The couple was released on $10,000 bond while pills suspected as ecstasy found in the car are being examined.
We're pretty sure this violates T.I.'s probation, which he's serving for prior firearm convictions.
On the east coast, Puffy is getting sued for age discrimination. The $12 million suit was filed by 51-year-old Francesca Spero, after she was fired from Bad Boy. She claims Puffy had no patience for her after she needed a major hip surgery in 2008, and when she later “suffered a relapse” to an addiction to prescription medication and alcohol.
According to a Bad Boy spokesperson, “This is a grab for money by someone who concedes in her complaint to having had a drug relapse while on the job and an employer who was not satisfied with her work,”. "There are many reasons why Ms. Spero is no longer employed by Bad Boy, but age discrimination is not one of them.” We have to wonder where Puff's patience really ran short....
