Scottie Pippen is a suspect in a felony assault…Aaron Carter got jumped…Paula Deen had a change of heart…Where did Justin Bieber and his entire entourage get banned for life?!..
TMZ was first to report that Scottie Pippen is a suspect in a felony assault with a deadly weapon, with the deadly weapon being his shoe. Scottie was standing outside Nobu in Malibu Sunday night when a man walked up and asked him for an autograph. Scottie said no and somehow it escalated to the point where Scottie allegedly knocked the guy out with a punch to the face and then kicked him when he was out cold on the ground. He took off before police could get there. The victim was taken to the hospital to be treated for broken teeth, a swollen mouth and back and neck injuries.
Aaron Carter says he was attacked by a gang of rabid New Kids on the Block fans — all of them grown men. Aaron claims that as he was leaving a restaurant in Boston, a huge man came up to him in the parking lot, yelling, “I heard you’re doing a show here tomorrow! This is the town of the New Kids!” That’s when Aaron says three other men jumped out of a car and started beating him up. Aaron claims he got a few punches in himself and thinks his knuckles might be broken, but he tweeted, “…That’s what they get. People think I’m a pretty little white boy but no way. I think I won. I’m still standing.” But Aaron says he won’t file a police report because that would be “girlie.”
Paula Deen was supposed to go on the “Today” show with Matt Lauer this past Friday to face the music over using the “N” word and making racist jokes, but she canceled at the last minute. But after being fired from the Food Network and losing her ham deal, Paula has had time to regain her composure and says she will appear on the “Today” show tomorrow. One PR expert says Paula will survive this, but her brand has been tainted and will never be the same. In fact, he said, “When her obituary is written, this will be a significant part of it.”
