Mutulu Shakur, stepfather of the late rapper Tupac Shakur, was sentenced to 60 years in prison for his role in the 1981 heist of a Brinks armored truck.


Shakur was expected to die behind bars but is now free after serving half of his sentence in California.

Nyack police officers Edward O'Grady and Waverly "Chipper" Brown, along with Brinks Security Guard Peter Paige, were gunned down during the heist.


The Brinks Robbery Memorial at the Exit 11 Thruway entrance stands as a permanent reminder of the sacrifice given by the men.


Shakur's release comes 10 years after the release of Kathy Boudin, who served 23 years of a life sentence for her role in the murders and is now a professor at Columbia University.

DMX is out of the hospital after collapsing in the parking lot of a Yonkers, N.Y., hotel on Monday night, his attorney said Tuesday.
The 45-year-old rapper, real name Earl Simmons, didn't have a pulse when authorities arrived, police told the Associated Press. Murray Richman, DMX's lawyer, told the AP that although he didn't know why his client stopped breathing, the performer does suffer from asthma.
"Just got off the phone with the DOG . He's good and in great spirits Thanks for all the blessings," collaborator Swizz Beatz tweeted on Tuesday afternoon.

Suge Knight and Katt Williams are not guilty. At least, that’s what Suge Knight and Katt Williams say.

Former hip-hop mogul Marion “Suge” Knight and comedian Williams pleaded not guilty to a robbery charge during their arraignment on Tuesday, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office told TheWrap.

Knight and Williams are accused of taking a photographer’s camera in Sept. 2014 outside a studio in Beverly Hills.

Earlier this month, a judge determined that there was enough evidence for the case to go to trial.

Knight and Williams are next due in court on Nov. 30 for a pretrial hearing.

In addition to the robbery case, Knight also faces charges of murder and attempted murder stemming from a fatal car incident  in Compton, Calif., in January, which left Terry Carter dead and Cle Sloan injured. Knight has also pleaded not guilty to those charges.

Who Killed Tupac Shakur? 4 Theories Including the Latest and Most Unexpected Claim PDF Print E-mail

Tupac Shakur's 1996 death continues to spur several theories as to who killed the legendary East Harlem rapper. The latest unexpected accusation, from Los Angeles Police Department investigator Greg Kading in a forthcoming Netflix documentary Murder Rap on Shakur's and Biggie Smalls' murders, claims rapper Puff Daddy ordered the hit.


Kading, who led special task force investigations of Shakur's and Smalls' deaths, claims in the film that the two notorious murders were connected — that Diddy ordered the hit with a Crips gang member on Shakur and that Shakur's manager Suge Knight responded by ordering a hit with a Bloods gang member on Notorious B.I.G. six months later, according to BET.

Jane Fonda Reveals Skinny Dipping Adventure With Michael Jackson PDF Print E-mail

Jane Fonda has definitely had some interesting experiences in her life.

The 77-year-old actress reveals to The Hollywood Reporter that she once went skinny dipping with the late Michael Jackson -- as well as legendary actress Greta Garbo -- in the early 1980s. Fonda says Jackson came to stay with her for 10 days when she was filming 1982's On Golden Pond, and that her co-star, legendary actress Katharine Hepburn, initially disapproved.

"When I first asked her permission ... she was not happy," Fonda recalls. "But then the crew said, 'You don’t understand, it's Michael Jackson.'"


"She was very prickly," Fonda adds of the screen idol. "I mean, she was a snob, she was very moody, she was very judgmental."

Fonda says Jackson lived with her at her house on the New Hampshire set, and that Hepburn not only eventually accepted him, but mentored him as well.

"[Jackson] wanted to be a movie star -- he had just finished doing The Wiz," Fonda explains. "And he had a tape recorder with him, and every day I would bring him to the set, and in between scenes she would sit down in a chair and pull over a chair for him and tell him stories. ... And every story embedded a lesson."

One lesson, she shares, had to do with theater and silent film star Laurette Taylor. Fonda says Hepburn saw Taylor in The Glass Menagerie and was moved by it, but saw her 25 or 30 years later, and "the magic was gone."

"And she said to Michael, 'She wasn't hungry anymore' -- what a great thing to say to a young, rising star like Michael," Fonda now muses. "You gotta stay hungry. Don't ever phone it in. Don't ever take it for granted. You know what I mean?"

And is Fonda still "hungry" to this day?

"Oh, you have no idea," she swiftly answered back.

This, of course, isn't the first time the Grace and Frankie actress has opened up about very personal experiences. While playing a game of "Never Have I Ever" on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in May, she surprisingly revealed she's a member of the mile-high club.

"It was my fourth date with Ted Turner -- he has his own plane -- and we get on the plane and he asks, 'Are you a member of the mile-high club?'" she recalled about her third husband. "But I didn't know what he was talking about. And then I joined!"

"Suddenly the seats became a bed," she joked.
