According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, there will be a new date for the deposition that will take place on November 29. This new date will act as a last chance for Kanye to sort his affairs before the case coming to trial on December 14.

The couple had been on house arrest since June of this year and were facing many more years than given. They had been indicted back in 2019 where prosecutors stated that the couple had frauded banks out of millions of dollars.

Prosecutors said the couple took out $30 million in fraudulent bank loans to aid in their luxurious way of life and extravagant spending well before appearing in reality television.

It appears that 50 Cent is looking to take the case between him and Perfection Plastic Surgery & MedSpa and Angela Kogan that claimed he had a penis enhancement procedure to trial. The mogul took to his Instagram to share of the news in comedic style.

“yeah my d_ck is a BIG DEAL set for trial in july no enhancement necessary,these fools put them selves out of business. SMH”

The trial will be set for July 3rd, 2023 as 50 cent had previously filed a right-of-publicity lawsuit against Kogan and her company as he stated that they used his photo without his permission which led to “public embarrassment.”

Documents obtained by All Hip Hop has shared what Judge Robert Scola has said regarding the case, stating: “The appearance of counsel and each party or representatives of each party with full authority to enter into a full and complete compromise and settlement is mandatory. If insurance is involved, an adjuster with authority up to the policy limits or the most recent demand, whichever is lower, must attend. All proceedings of the mediation will be confidential and privileged. … If mediation is not conducted, the case may be stricken from the trial calendar, and other sanctions may be imposed.”

Kanye West Announces Presidential Run For 2024

Kanye West, now known as Ye has announced his run for presidency for the upcoming 2024 election. This wouldn’t be a first for the mogul as he has ran a campaign back in 2020.

The news was confirmed on Twitter with a video circulating around of him speaking on his upcoming campaign. When asked if he was running, he answered:

“Yes. It’s simple ’cause ain’t nobody can tell me, you know, ‘You should say this, you shouldn’t say that,’ you know? It’s just we’re moving towards the future.”

Trey Songz Accused Of Assaulting Woman In NYC

Trey Songz has once again been accused of having assaulted a woman in New York City who claims that he had punched her at a bowling alley. According to TMZ, the woman who had allegedly been attacked filed a complaint to the police where she says the incident took place in the bathroom where he had punched her multiple times and dragged her by her hair.

The accuser had been taken to a hospital where she was treated for minor injuries. His attorney Mitchell Schuster states that the singer is not guilty and told TMZ that he will be exonerated.

“A source close to the investigation informs us that TS has been cooperative with authorities and expects that when all the evidence is reviewed, he will be exonerated. This is another instance where those involved try to blame the celebrity with hopes of getting fame or riches.”

Just last month, Trey Songz was able to beat his 2021 case due to statute of limitations in California expiring as the incident allegedly happened in 2016 and the woman filed in 2021.

Saweetie is back with new material as she has released her latest single, “Don’t Say Nothin'”. Her latest track has stirred a bit of controversy as many thought that her timing was quite off, due to the fact of the subjects of whom she is targeting.

The song takes hits at both Lil Baby and Quavo where the two have addressed the ‘Icy’ singer regarding certain instances. Quavo had called his ex-girlfriend out for reportedly sleeping with a close acquaintance that was rumored to be Offset or Lil Baby, or both.

Saweetie also caused some commotion when she posted a picture of her and a mystery man who was identified as Lil Baby on a shopping trip at the Chanel store. Saweetie has addressed these things in the song where she raps the lyrics:

“Why n—as always speakin’ on who I’m f—in’ on? / He must’ve got excited when I FaceTimed with nothin’ on / Them same lips that’s yappin’ be the ones I n—ed on / A hunnid K, please, know how much paper I be touchin’ on? / That’s light, better check my net worth”

Speaking about the inspiration for the song, Saweetie says “It’s my memoir as a single woman, dealing with men who talk too much. I put all of my experiences into one song. The studio is definitely therapy.”
