WESTFIELD, N.J. (AP) — Family and friends gathered at a cemetery Monday to pay their final respects to Bobbi Kristina Brown as she was buried next to her mother, singer Whitney Houston.

Police closed the road into Fairview Cemetery for the private ceremony. Outside the cemetery, well-wishers gathered to wave to the motorcade and hold up pictures.

The casket holding the 22-year-old daughter of Houston and singer Bobby Brown arrived at Newark Liberty International Airport shortly before 10 a.m. and made the short trip to Whigham Funeral Home in Newark, the same facility that handled Houston's funeral arrangements three years ago.

About 90 minutes later, the hearse drove to the cemetery in Westfield, followed by black SUVs carrying relatives including cousin Dionne Warwick.

Bobbi Kristina died in hospice care July 26, about six months after she was found face-down and unresponsive in a bathtub in her suburban Atlanta townhome.

Her death was similar to the way her mother died.

Whitney Houston's body was found face-down in a foot of water in her bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel just before the 2012 Grammy Awards. Authorities found prescription drugs in the suite and evidence of heart disease and cocaine in her body but determined her death was an accidental drowning.

Bobbi Kristina was found in the townhome she shared with Nick Gordon, an orphan three years older whom Houston had raised as her own. Bobbi Kristina referred to him as her husband.

A police report earlier this year described the incident as a drowning, and authorities are investigating her death.

Bobbi Kristina grew up in the shadow of her famous parents. She appeared with them in 2005 on the Bravo reality show "Being Bobby Brown" and attended award shows with her mother and father.

Houston and Brown were married 15 years before their relationship ended in 2007. Bobbi Kristina was their only child together.

New York (AFP) - Rap mogul Dr. Dre will release his first album in nearly 16 years to accompany a film on his former band N.W.A. and hinted the record would be his last.

Dr. Dre -- who has become one of music's richest businesspeople and works with Apple -- said the album would come out on August 7, a week before the biopic "Straight Outta Compton" opens in US cinemas.

The album will feature collaborations with his protege Eminem, former N.W.A. bandmate Ice Cube and fellow Los Angeles-area rap giants Kendrick Lamar and Snoop Dogg, according to the pre-order information on Apple's iTunes.

The rapper, whose birth name is Andre Romelle Young, said he decided to record the album -- entitled "Compton: A Soundtrack by Dr. Dre" -- during the filming of "Straight Outta Compton."

"I felt myself just so inspired by the movie that I started recording an album," Dr. Dre said late Saturday on his show on Apple Music, the tech giant's new streaming and radio service where he has played a prominent role.

"I started recording a soundtrack. I kept it under wraps, and now the album is finished," he said.

Dr. Dre. indicated that the album would be his last, writing on Twitter that it was "my grand finale."

N.W.A -- which stands for Niggaz Wit Attitude -- shocked much of white America in the late 1980s with its unapologetic takes on street life through songs such as "Fuck Tha Police."

From his humble upbringing, Dr. Dre went on to develop headphones and other audio products under the name Beats Electronics, which Apple bought last year for $3.2 billion.

Forbes this year estimated his net worth at $700 million.

While focusing on the music business, Dr. Dre has not released a solo studio album since "2001," which despite its name was released in late 1999.

For years he has been reported to be working on an album called "Detox," but he said on his radio show that he had abandoned it.

"This is something you're not going to hear many artists say. The reason 'Detox' didn't come out was because I didn't like it. It wasn't good," he said.

50 Cent files for bankruptcy protection after losing lawsuit PDF Print E-mail

In this May 17, 2015 file photo, 50 Cent arrives at the Billboard Music Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Someone else's sex tape is proving to be costly for 50 Cent: A jury ordered the rapper-actor Friday, July 10, 2015, to pay $5 million to a woman who said he acquired a video she made with her boyfriend, added himself as a crude commentator and posted it online without her permission. Born Curtis Jackson, 50 Cent burst to the fore of gangsta rap with 2003’s “Get Rich or Die Tryin,’” its lead single, “In Da Club,” and a tough life story that included having been shot nine times.

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — 50 Cent filed for federal bankruptcy protection Monday, days after a jury ordered him to pay $5 million in an invasion-of-privacy lawsuit.

The rapper-actor, whose real name is Curtis Jackson III, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in U.S. District Court in Hartford. He owns a 50,000-square-foot mansion in nearby Farmington.

The filing lists both the assets and liabilities for the "Get Rich or Die Tryin'" artist as between $10 million and $50 million and indicates his debts are primarily consumer and not business related.

The filing comes after a New York jury on Friday ordered Jackson to pay $5 million to a woman who said he acquired a video she made with her boyfriend, added himself as a crude commentator and posted it online without her permission.

The jury this week was scheduled to deliberate on possible further, punitive damages in Lastonia Leviston's invasion-of-privacy lawsuit against Jackson. But the filing may put the trial on hold. Jackson did not appear as scheduled Monday to testify about his finances because of the bankruptcy filing, his lawyer said.

"Mr. Jackson's business interests will continue unaffected in the ordinary course during the pendency of the Chapter 11 case," attorney William A. Brewer III said in a statement. "This filing for personal bankruptcy protection permits Mr. Jackson to continue his involvement with various business interests and continue his work as an entertainer."

The lawsuit stems from a 13-minute video that appeared online in 2009, featuring a wig-wearing 50 Cent as a narrator dubbed Pimpin' Curly. He makes explicit remarks about the images and taunts rap rival Rick Ross, who isn't in the video but had previously had a daughter with Leviston. At the time the video surfaced, Ross and 50 Cent were trading barbs via video, lyrics and interviews.

Jackson got the tape from the man in it, Leviston's boyfriend at the time. The rapper said that he didn't actually post the video but that Leviston's then-boyfriend said she wouldn't mind if he did.

50 Cent burst to the fore of gangsta rap with 2003's "Get Rich or Die Tryin,'" its lead single, "In Da Club," and a tough life story that included having been shot nine times.

Jackson is an admitted former crack dealer who has built an empire beyond entertainment. He invested early in Vitamin Water and has expanded his business interests into clothing and audio equipment.

Now 40, he has gone on to become an actor whose credits include the Starz network action series "Power" and the upcoming boxing movie "Southpaw."

He also was named by Forbes last year as one of "Hip-Hops Five Wealthiest artists."

He bought his 17-acre home in Connecticut from boxer Mike Tyson in 2003 for $4.1 million. The house includes 19 bedrooms, more than two dozen bathrooms, a gym, billiard rooms, racquetball courts and a disco complete with stripper poles.

It had been listed for sale in 2009 for $10.9 million, but is no longer on the market.

A New Tupac Movie About His Final Days Is In The Works PDF Print E-mail
Written by CHET MANLEY   
Tuesday, 19 May 2015 22:39

It seems like only a month ago that John Singleton quit one Tupac biopic while promising to work on a different, “more respectful” project. There’s now word of another film, 7 Dayz, from director and Pac confidant Gobi M. Rahimi. Unlike the other projects, this film would focus on the seven days Rahimi spent with Shakur while the rapper was comatose before passing.

Rahimi – who helmed the music videos for “I Ain’t Mad at Cha” and “2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted,” among others – wants to raise $300,000 to prevent his movie, 7 Dayz, “from becoming another watered down Hollywood film,” according to the project’s IndieGogo page. The feature film will also incorporate rare, actual footage of the rapper.

Rahimi, who claims to have penned a letter for Shakur in which he fired Suge Knight, wrote on the website that since he bore witness to the rapper’s final days, he owed it to Tupac and the world to tell the story now, nearly two decades after the rapper’s death.

As Rahimi says in the video: “This isn’t a documentary. It’s not a hologram and it’s not a repurposed album. This is my experience; my story.” This is an interesting take, and I’m all for any excuse to watch unreleased Pac footage. I just hope that letter to Knight doesn’t reignite that “Suge shot me” theory.

You can support the project through Rahimi’s Indiegogo page.
