The hip-hop star, real name Shad Gregory Moss, was first hit with a tax lien in Florida for reportedly neglecting to pay $91,106 during 2006.
However, the star’s money woes are now continuing to mount – a tax lien filed in Georgia on January 9 alleges Bow Wow owes $15,280 in unpaid taxes from 2008 and an additional $19,701 for 2010, according to TMZ.com.
Teachers were appalled when a mother sent her child to school with a sandwich filled with just Smarties.
The chocolate-filled butty has prompted calls for an overhaul in pupils’ diets at the Lincolnshire school – including a trial of free school meals.
Health workers at NHS Lincolnshire went in to assess what pupils were bringing in for lunch – and found a wealth of youngsters were gorging on crisps, sweets and chocolate.
Lincolnshire already has one of the highest rates of childhood obesity in the country, with one in three children categorised as obese.
But not only have the free school meals seen children eating more healthy lunchtime options such as pasta, baked potatoes and lean meat, it is also said to have improved behaviour.
As the New England Patriots make that long, harrowing, three-hour trip from Boston to Indianapolis for the Super Bowl, they can do it in engrossed in their music. That’s thanks to a gift from receiver Chad Ochocinco, who is participating in the first Super Bowl in his career.
The Boston Herald reports that Ochocinco dropped around $28,000 on Beats by Dre Headphones for every member of the team. The headphones, widely regarded as the best in the industry, were designed by rapper Dr. Dre. The version Ochocinco picked out for the team produce a “clean, yet forceful sound.”
Wes Welker thinks the team needs to tune out distractions:
“The game is the most important thing and all I really look forward to and concentrate on,” WR Wes Welker said. “Everything else is just kinda noise. I think the fun part is really arriving there and getting away from everything and really concentrating on the game and the task at hand.”
Which makes the gifts perfect, because of their noise-canceling quality.
They are also capable of connecting to each other, meaning that the whole team can be connected and listening to the same song, but Bill Belichick won’t be forced to listen to those darn kids’ music. The headphones elicited excited tweets from Ochocinco’s teammates, who thanked him for his kindness and shared pictures of the gift.
The headphones are the second gift bestowed on the Patriots this week. On Friday, UGGs and their spokesman, Tom Brady, gave the entire team a pair of boots.
This app… well, it lets your jilted dates kindly request an explanation (in a convenient online survey form) for why you vanished. Now, we’d never suggest you’d do something like not calling back after a date. But life happens. Phones break. Amnesia strikes when you least expect it. The problem: that Peruvian cocoa butter spokesmodel who turned out to be a little fierier than you bargained for really thought things were going great. And now, answers are needed.
Comedian/actor Mike Epps was on the Rickey Smiley Morning Show acting a fool with Rickey and the crew!
Mike talked about a possible new “Friday” movie with Chris Tucker and Katt Williams, and joked about his role as Satin in the upcoming remake of “Sparkle,” which will also star Whitney Houston and Jordin Sparks.
On a more serious note, Mike just got nominated for an NAACP Image Award for his role in “Jumping the Broom.”
