Promoter says Tony Matterhorn owes him $90,000


A promoter called  Wrenroy Smith, is upset with dancehall selector Tony Matterhorn who he says is double-booking dates and not honouring his commitments. He is also demanding the return of a  90,000 deposit for a show on April 7, 2012.

The promoter has issued a letter which states:

I, Wrenroy Smith, am the promoter for an annual event on Annotto Bay, Jamaica billed as Girls Graduation - an all white edition fundraising event.

I booked the services of Dancehall DJ/artist Tony Matterhorn, in addition to other sound system DJ's, and invested money and promotional work into staging my event and had to cancel it because Tony Matterhorn pulled out of my event at the last minute, without returning my deposit.

Girls Graduation was scheduled for April 7, 2012. On December 29, 2011, I sent a deposit of $1,065.00 to Tony Matterhorn via Western Union, officially booking him for April 7, 2012. In January 2012, Tony Matterhorn called me to say that he had accepted another booking for April 7, 2012 (World Clash RESET in New York). He asked if I could change my date to April 6, 2012. I notified him that I couldn't as I already booked the venue in Jamaica, and made a deposit on the sound systems, Swatch and Jamrock. Over 20,000 flyers were already printed and I had already started street promotion in Jamaica.

Realizing that I couldn't change the date of my event, Tony Matterhorn said he would have to cancel with me and return my deposit ($1,065.00). April 7, 2012 has come and gone and Tony Matterhorn has not returned my deposit. I have reached out to him numerous times and he had set different dates with me as to when he would return my money. That hasn't been done. He has given me false numbers and BBM pin and has dodged and evaded every opportunity for me to reach him directly.

My reason for writing this letter is to make a public statement and appeal to Tony Matterhorn to contact me directly and refund the deposit that I had given him. His behavior is false, elusive, unprofessional and unbecoming of someone of his stature in the dancehall music business. I would like to resolve this matter as soon as possible.

Dancehall Superstar Vybz Kartel’s ganja trial to begin next month


Internationally acclaimed Dancehall superstar, Adidja Palmer, more popularly known as Vybz Kartelwill report to court next month for the beginning of his ganja trial.
The prominent deejay faces a May 22 court date in the matter, which will be resumed after a three month delay. The new trial date was scheduled earlier this week in the absence of Kartel, who was not brought to the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court on the day of the hearing.
Presiding resident magistrate, Maxine Ellis ruled that a writ must be issued for Kartel's release from a Spanish Town based jail where he's currently being kept in order to ensure that he makes the May court date.
Kartel has been incarcerated since last September when he was initially arrested at a New Kingston hotel following a major police operation in which they discovered a quantity of marijuana. Kartel, amongst others were then charged with illegal possession of marijuana
Meanwhile, Kartel will appear in court on Friday as he once again seeks bail in the Clive 'Lizard' Williams murder case. On Monday, the Crown handed over audio and video evidence they believe will implicate Kartel and his co-accused, including Portmore Empire protégé, Shawn Storm and designer/road manager, Calvin 'Moonie' Haye.
Law enforcement officials allege that Kartel and other took Williams to a residence in Havendale, St. Andrew where he was later beaten and stabbed to death after an argument regarding the disappearance of illegal guns.




Finger-Lickin’ Good: KFC Forced To Pay $8.35 Million To Family Of Girl Gone Brain Dead From Chicken Snack Wrap!


The family of a girl who was left brain-damaged after eating a chicken wrap at a KFC restaurant was awarded $8.35 million ($8 million Australian) today by an Australian court.
Monika Samaan, then 7, and her family became ill from salmonella poisoning in 2005 after sharing a chicken wrap they purchased at a Sydney KFC. The girls’ parents and brother said they suffered from vomiting and diarrhea, but made a full recovery. Monika, however, spent months in a coma and is now confined to a wheel chair and unable to speak.
The family’s attorney, George Vlahakis, praised the court’s decision and said Monika’s care had exhausted the family’s financial resources.
“Monika is now a big girl and they are finding it increasingly difficult to lift her and to look after her basic needs as well as look after Monika’s younger siblings,” Vlahakis told the Sydney Morning Herald outside of court.
In a statement posted on its website, KFC said it plans to appeal the case.
“This is clearly a very tragic case but we are deeply disappointed and surprised by the judge’s decision,” Sally Glover, KFC Australia’s Chief Corporate Affairs Officer, said. ”We feel deeply for Monika and the Samaan family; however we also have a responsibility to defend KFC’s reputation as a provider of safe, high-quality food.”


Seal Allegedly Wants To Take Half Of Soon-To-Be Ex-Wife Heidi Klum’s $70 Million Bank Roll!!


Seal Allegedly Wants To Take Half Of Soon-To-Be Ex-Wife Heidi Klum’s $70 Million Bank Roll!!


HEIDI KLUM’s divorce from SEAL is erupting into an ugly battle as the “Kiss From a Rose” singer prepares to go after a huge chunk of her $70 million fortune, say sources.
The 38-year-old supermodel filed for divorce April 6, stating they have a post-nuptial agreement, which means they agreed to keep their assets completely separate during their marriage.
But Seal has struck back, filing his own documents that make no mention of their post-nup, yet note that California is a community property state — which could entitle him to half of the beauty’s megabucks.
“Even though they may have had a post-nuptial agreement, it appears that Seal is going to challenge it,” said a legal strategist. “If he is successful, it could mean big bucks for him in their divorce.
“Seal could go after half of everything his wife earned during the marriage.
“He could also own a piece of her career for years to come since any contract she signed while they were together would be considered community property.”
To complicate matters, in december 2010, Heidi and Seal bought a $13.4 million house in Brentwood, Calif. under community property rules, Seal would be entitled to half its value if he successfully challenges the post-nuptial agreement

Kim Kardashian & Lindsay Lohan Are Invited To The White House


You expect celebs like George Clooney, Charlize Theron, Steven Spielberg and even MTV News' own Sway to get invites to Washington's annual night off from partisan bickering replaced with biting political jokes known as theWhite House Correspondents' Association Dinner. It's a tradition to mix real Hollywood with the biggest stars in politics at the gathering, which over the years has made for some truly odd place settings.
This year is no exception, as tabloid staples Kim Kardashian and Lindsay Lohan have made the cut, meaning they will be rubbing elbows with the likes of Zooey Deschanel, Paul Rudd, Stevie Wonder, "Hunger Games" star Josh Hutcherson, Mary J. Blige, "The Artist" star dog Uggie, Diane Keaton, John Legend and "Portlandia" co-stars Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein. This is actually Kardashian's second go-round, as she was a guest of Fox News in 2010, though this is the first invite for Lohan



WINKY D - MUTARE SHOW TURNS VIOLENT


Violence rocked dancehall king Winky D’s show in Mutare at the weekend, with organisers describing the red hot star as “big-headed”. Hundreds who had packed the Pavilion Watering Hole in the eastern border city turned violent after Winky D first refused to perform citing a poor sound system and then put up a poor show when he did take to the stage.
Winky D, who was expected to perform from around midnight for about two hours, performed for less than an hour even after arriving two hours late.The Pavilion experienced one of its worst violent scenes as disgruntled patrons stoned organisers and slightly damaged the public address system on learning that Winky D had snubbed the gigclaiming the PA system was of poor quality.

This forced organisers to convince Winky D, who was holed at a local hotel to perform. The damage had already been done when he arrived for the show. Obey “Big Fish” Hove, the managing director of the pavilion was a bitter man after the show, castigating the artist for an “unprofessional attitude”.

“It is sad that Winky D chose to drag the Pavilion Watering Hole brand through the mud as he did. We are unhappy over his conduct which we feel will not help anyone if he continues to act in that manner,” said Hove. Winky D’s coming to Mutare had been long awaited by the majority of his fans who range from youngsters to adults. The performer, popularly known as the “Bigiman” had attracted hundreds of people at the open venue only to bungle at the last minute




Whitney Houston shines in 'Sparkle - HER LAST MOVIE


LAS VEGAS -- Cee Lo Green, Mike Epps and Jordin Sparks help Whitney Houston return to the big screen for the last time in the girl group movie "Sparkle."
Houston served as executive producer of the movie, which had already finished filming in Detroit when she died in Beverly Hills on Feb. 11 at age 48.
A brief preview shared with theater owners Wednesday night at the CinemaCon conference in Las Vegas featured Houston's trademark dazzling smile as she danced in a living room in celebration.
The remake of the 1976 movie stars Houston as the mother of three girls who form a singing group and struggle with fame and drug addiction. The movie, scheduled for release in August, was seen as a comeback vehicle for the superstar, whose career suffered as she battled with drug and alcohol abuse.
The preview footage largely focused on Sparks, who was seen playing a piano in a modest home, glasses dangling from her nose. In later scenes, she appeared glammed up in sparkling, curve-hugging gowns. It's the American Idol winner's first notable Hollywood role.
Houston labored for 12 years to get "Sparkle" on the big screen. The film marked her first return to cinema since 1996's "The Preacher's Wife." Her Hollywood debut came 20 years ago in the blockbuster movie "The Bodyguard."
Houston, a multi-platinum singer, earned her first No. 1 hit by age 22.
An autopsy showed she accidentally drowned in a hotel room bathtub on the eve of the Grammy Awards. Heart disease and cocaine use were contributing factors.

Beyonce: People's 2012 World's Most Beautiful Woman


It's official: Beyonce has been named People's 2012 World's Most Beautiful Woman.The new mom graces the cover of the magazine, looking as stunning as ever.
The singer, who welcomed her first daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, with husband Jay-Z in January, opened up about motherhood in the special issue:
"I feel more beautiful than I've ever felt because I've given birth ... I have never felt so connected, never felt like I had such a purpose on this earth."
Since Beyonce announced her pregnancy with great fanfare onstage at the 2011 MTV VMAs, many people were fascinated by her pregnancy and waited for the child, rumored to be a girl, to make her grand entrance into the world.
"We are happy to announce the arrival of our beautiful daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, born on Saturday, January 7, 2012. Her birth was emotional and extremely peaceful, we are in heaven ... it was the best experience of both our lives."
Since then, we've seen a few adorable photos of the happy family, and lots and lots of photos of Blue's tiny legs as she makes her way around New York with Beyonce, who stunned everyone with her slim post-baby body in February.
Recently, the family headed south to St. Barts for a tropical getaway, where Beyonce showed off an enviable beach body as well.
While the "World's Most Beautiful Woman" is loving her new life as a mom, she is also getting ready to perform again. It's reported she'll take the stage over Memorial Day weekend in Atlantic City for the first time since giving birth.
For more on People's "Most Beautiful" issue, including all the stars included in the package, head over to People.com and pick up the special issue, on newsstands Friday


Forensic material handed over in Vybz Kartel case


Investigators probing the murder-case against dancehall entertainer Vybz Kartel have now submitted the forensic material in the case.  The forensic reports were turned over to the Director of Public Prosecutions Monday.  A senior investigator told RJR News that they have now submitted the videotaped material; the telephone data, including text messages exchanged between the persons allegedly involved in the killing, and the forensic material.

The forensic material revealed that bloodstains taken from the scene of the alleged killing, were that of human blood.  The reports also revealed that persons who carried out the crime, attempted to destroy the evidence by setting fire to the house in which 24 year old Clive Williams otherwise called Lizard, was killed.  However, the senior investigator said they were able to retrieve bloodstain evidence at the crime scene. The telephone data or text messages reportedly give goring details as to how the body of the victim was disposed off.

Vybz Kartel, whose real name is Adidjah Palmer, is charged jointly with members of  his Gaza Empire for the murder of Mr Williams.  It's alleged that on August 16, last year, Mr. Williams was taken to a house in Havendale where he was beaten and stabbed to death.  The cops reported that they seized a cellular phone used to record the killing and that has helped them to show that Williams was killed although they didn't find his body.  The others accused of  the crime are deejay, Shawn Campbell, also known as "Shawn Storm"; fashion designer, Calvin Haye, also known as "Moonie"; Cayro Jones, Sean Williams, and Andre St John.  Justice Marjorie Cole Smith had given the police until Monday to submit the material following complaints from the attorneys for Vybz Kartel.  A bail hearing is tentatively set for Friday before the Home Circuit Court.

Mavado - Dancehall Star To Movie Star - SHOTTAS TOO


International exposure keeps accumulating for prominent Dancehallsingjay, Mavado as he's set to take on a new realm of the performing arts: Acting. 
The Alliance artiste will be starring in the upcoming movie,Shottas Too (Shottas 2), a sequel to the revered urban flick, Shottas. The original installation of the film was unveiled 10 years ago, telling a story of two young men who grew up in the troublesome areas of Kingstonparticipated in organized crime in the Jamaican capital as well as Miami. Reggae superstar, Ky-Mani Marley and Dancehall veteran deejay, Spragga Benz played the roles of the young men in Shottas while the flick also featured legendary Jamaican actor, Paul Campbell and was co-produced by former Fugees rapper, Wyclef Jean.

In the second installment of Shottas, Mavado will star alongside Ky-Mani Marley; this, according to the movie's director, Cess Silvera, who confirmed the news, via Twitter. So far, there's no indication of what roleMavado will be playing or the direction that the storyline for the film will take this time.
While no date has been confirmed for the movie’s release, filming forShottas Too began on April 20.




ZIMBABWE - Tryson Chimbetu silences his critics


ARMCHAIR critics who doubted that young dendera musician Tryson Chimbetu’s time as the heir-apparent to the throne has come were left with second thoughts after the musician silenced them with a scintillating act at the Uhuru Concert in Harare.

The concert pitted some of the country’s finest musicians but the young prodigy sprung a big surprise that will remain etched in the minds of thousands of music lovers who were left clamouring for more. 
“Dr Nero”, as he is called in entertainment circles after one of his late father’s songs, proved why he is riding high at the moment  as evidenced by the way that massive crowd mobbed him and yelled for an encore after his act.
Some of the people who attended the gala could not help but go down memory lane to the days of the original Marxist Brothers when his late father Naison and uncle Simon were still playing together.
“Truth be told, Tryson has that original dendera flair which we used to enjoy during the days of the original Marxist Brothers,” one fan said.
Another fan said Tryson’s voice reminded them of the late Simon.
“The real dendera is the one where you take it easy. Haina pressure, you don’t sweat it out like sungura,” she said.
The way that Tryson’s Mercedes-Benz was mobbed by fans after his performance was reminiscent of a similar incident in which Simon’s car was also mobbed by excited fans at Gwanzura Stadium during the Jenaguru Music Festival several years ago.
It was a case of history repeating itself as Tryson proved that dendera music indeed runs in his                 genes.
Tryson has been toiling for years in an effort to build his name and started off as a mere curtain-raising for the likes of Alick Macheso, among others.
It was by clinging on Macheso’s music coat-tails that he gradually rose to become a force to reckon with in the “cut-throat” industry dominated by a phalanx of other gifted musicians.
But it his youthful age that has put him in good stead of becoming the dendera king of the future

Ashton Kutcher & Mila Kunis' Romantic Weekend Together

They’ve been dodging relationship rumors as of late, and Ashton Kutcher andMila Kunis definitely didn’t do themselves any favors by going away together over the weekend.
According to TMZ, the “Punk’d” stud and the “Black Swan” beauty were spotted out and about in Carpinteria, California (near Santa Barbara) enjoying each other’s company and doing some shopping.


Ashton and Mila also treated themselves to a sushi date and purchased sunflowers and fruit from a roadside stand during their three-day getaway.
An inside source claims that while there may be love in the air, Kutcher isn’t taking it seriously. "He always talked about Mila like a little sister. They're definitely close pals and have been. I think if anything she's a good time for him. But he's not looking for anything serious

KARDASHIAN FAMILY $40 MILLION PLUS DEAL With E











Sources connected to  the deal tell TMZ ... Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, Kris and Bruce will get the lion's share of the money ... and they are each getting equal pay. 

We're told Kendall, Kylie and Rob are on a lower pay grade -- and will be paid equally as well. 

Scott Disick and his son Mason have a separate deal. Ditto for Lamar ... who hammered out a package deal to appear in both "Khloe and Lamar" and "Keeping Up with the Kardashians."

We're told the new deal ONLY includes existing shows -- so if Kim and Kanye get a new spinoff show ... they will have to bang out a new contract for even MORE money. 
0314_divider_graphic
The Kardashian family has just signed on for 3 more seasons with E!, and it's the richest deal ever in reality TV ... TMZ has learned. 

Sources connected with the deal tell us, the family will get more than $40 million for 3 more seasons of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians."   

The 6th season of the show averaged 3 million viewers. The 7th season begins airing May 20.

Our sources say the $40-plus million deal does not include product endorsements and other items associated with the show that Kim, Kris and the rest of the brood are able to hock
