‘That’s So Raven’ Star Orlando Brown Sentenced to 180 Days in Jail



Orlando  Brown is headed to jail.

The former That’s So Raven star  was sentenced to 180 days in jail; he is currently two weeks into the sentence.

Brown remained in custody on Aug. 23, after he failed to show proof that he completed court-ordered alcohol ed classes for his 2011 DUI arrest.

In 2007, Brown, who was 19 at the time, was arrested for marijuana possession in Houston. He was arrested again in 2011 for a DUI. Brown’s manager said he was just “in the driver’s seat and popped in the CD. He wasn’t going anywhere.”  The actor was not thrown in jail, instead he struck a deal that required him to attend an alcohol education class. unfortunately, he never signed up for the class and after   failing to meet probation conditions, he was arrested in May 2012. Two months later, he was busted for being a no-show in court.

LA County jails are currently overpopulated, so the actor is expected to  only serve 27 days. He is expected to be released on September 19.

Rapper Da Brat Gets Michael Jackson Tattoo

Rapper Da Brat was in prison when The King Of Pop, Michael Jackson, passed away in June 2009. After serving a 3-year bid in prison for assaulting a Hostess in an Atlanta night club, the rapper was released in March. Jermaine Dupri tweeted a link to the picture of the tattoo (shown above) on Da Brat’s leg. Even if you aren’t a MJ fan, you have to admit that the detail on this tattoo is sick!

Da Brat is planning to release some new music as well as a autobiography called “Insubordination” in the coming months.

“The book is pretty much about my life and lot of things that I have been through that nobody knows that I have been through, except the people close to me and my family,” Da Brat told The BoomBox in March. “I think it’s a great book. It’s probably going to end up being some type of movie. I’m not trying to brag on it but everybody who reads it, they can’t put it down!”

I don’t know what’s worse the fact that Tiny did it, or the fact that she spoke to the media about it.   This past weekend, T.I. got into a little trouble after  he and wife Tiny were caught getting “frisky”  during visiting hours in Arkansas.

Prison guidelines allow inmates and visitors to hug and kiss upon arrival and departure, but the hands of both the inmate and visitor must be visible at all times.


Here’s how TMZ is reporting it:

Tiny tells us T.I. was immediately reprimanded and sent to a “Special Housing Unit”–which consists of more security and less freedom.

Tiny says she hasn’t spoken to T.I. since the incident–but she’s hopeful she’ll be allowed to visit again soon…as long as she keeps her hand to herself.

T.I. covers VIBE Magazine



T.I. might be in jail, but he is still making headlines. The rapper can be seen on the Dec/Jan. cover of Vibe magazine.  T.I sat down with Vibe before entering prison. In this interview the rapper speaks candidly about his drug use, success and his talk with Eminem. This issue of Vibe hits stands on November 30.  Check out some snippets from the issue below.


I’ve heard you mention how the good that you’ve done is easily forgotten. Do you feel that you’ve been treated unfairly?
If I place my value in the way humans treat me, then maybe. But they’re human, man―they can’t help themselves. They do that to people they know personally. So how can I expect them to treat me, only knowing me through television? They did that to Jesus. They did that to Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, Muhammad Ali. They did it to every great person you could possibly think of. When it was all good, they was with them. When things got bad, then they was against them.

But in this case things didn’t “get bad.” It’s something you did.
Let me just say this: [he sits up on the couch] If you look at a guy who came up, no pops in the house, moms on welfare, food stamps; started selling dope when he was 12, 13 years old, came up handling guns, being in shoot-outs; started going to jail when he was 15. In all of this chaos and this mischief and lawlessness, the person who was just in jail for machine guns and silencers turns his life around. And now you want to crucify him ―for what? Three pills. I mean, of course it’s wrong and unacceptable and inexcusable. No problem. But in the grand scheme of things, it’s rather petty. It’s rather petty to hold someone’s feet to the fire for something so small when they have overcame things that were so big. All that could have been going wrong―if I was riding with more guns, or if I had gotten into a shoot-out and killed somebody, then I could see that. But just think about it. I’ve gotten it down to this much.

How did you get a drug habit?
I had a lot of work done to my teeth. Oral surgery, extractions, six, seven, eight root canals. Between January to February. As soon as I got out, I had a lot of stuff done. In the joint, you eat shit that is unhealthy for you. I had fillings that fell out and stuff that had to get dealt with. Of course for the pain they gave me oxycontin and hydrocodone. And, mind you, on October 13, 2007, I had cut off everything―weed, alcohol. Then I get these pills and I start taking them for the pain at first. And then I’m like, Wait―this shit makes me feel good. And it’s legal. After the pain went away, I kept taking it. I had like five, six prescriptions. So I had, like 80 pills. Everybody else might have a drink or smoke a blunt, I took a pain pill. Times when I had 18-, 20-hour days, I’d take a pain pill. And eventually I developed―I guess―the beginning stages of dependence.

Have you talked to Eminem about addiction?
Sure. We got a record together, and we talked a lot. I asked him how he knew he was an addict. Basically if you put yourself in harm’s way… if you risk that, you’ve got to assume that there is something fundamentally wrong with your thought process.
