William "Rick Ross" Roberts is set to be a free man, according to TMZ. The
website is reporting a judge in Fayette County, Georgia granted the Miami rapper a $2 million bond.
Ross paid off the amount by offering $1 million equity from his mansion formerly owned by boxer Evander Holyfield and another Georgia property as well as a $500,000 surety bond and $500,000 in cash.
The Maybach Music Group boss was arrested last week for allegedly assaulting and kidnapping a groundskeeper at his home. Jonathan Zamudio is claiming he suffered neck and mouth injuries from being dragged back into the house, beaten, and pistol whipped by Ross and his bodyguard.
Chris Brown is fed up with the mother of his one-year-daughter, Nia Guzman, is summoning the help of a judge to deal with her. Breezy has filed documents in Houston, TX to establish his paternity over his daughter Royalty so he can have more paternal rights, TMZ reports.
The "Autumn Leaves" singer wants to fight Guzman's effort to get $15,000 a month in child support. He is currently paying $2, 500 a month in child support and does not want to pay anything higher than that, as he sees the increase that Guzman wants as unreasonable. Brown wants a judge to set the figure. He also claims that she keeps him from seeing Royalty on a regular basis, which he wants a judge to address as well.

It looks like Britney Spears caught wind of Iggy Azalea's rant about their collaborativesingle "Pretty Girls" flopping. Despite the fact that the single had two pop stars on it, it still barely cracked the Top 30. For the most part Iggy blamed the flop on lack of promotion and lack of performances. Azalea didn't really blame Spears, but it is hard to look at Spears' tweet below as anything less than a jab, especially since Iggy's tour was cancelled.
Columbus Short is looking to return to television. The 32-year-old Missouri native will not be reprising his role as Harrison Wright on the hit ABC drama Scandal, but Short's face could be back on the small
The actor/dancer/singer is looking to add reality TV star to his profile. Short's career is now being handled by Block Entertainment CEO Russell "Block" Spencer, and the show biz veteran tells AllHipHop.com he is actively working to get a Columbus Short-led docu-series into production.
"We have two reality shows right now that I'm in negotiations with. One of them is with Columbus Short called Coming Up Short," says Spencer. "It's not going to be a lot of bullsh*t drama. It's going to be showing how Block Ent is rebuilding the brand for music and new artists."
Spencer is also producing another reality series titled Rebuilding Hip-Hop Block By Block. The program will travel to "untapped" markets to search for the next breakout music stars.
"They'll have a chance to be on a major motion picture soundtrack or in the movie. They'll have a chance to sign with a major label. I'm going to film all of that," explains Spencer.
Russell "Block" Spencer founded Block Entertainment in 2005. He is responsible for helping to launch the music careers of Rick Ross, Young Jeezy, Yung Joc, and Ciara. Spencer also serves as a consultant for NBCUniversal.
Besides appearing on Scandal for three seasons, Columbus Short has also acted in the motion pictures Stomp The Yard, This Christmas, and Armored. He worked as a choreographer as well.
"To set the record straight, no I did not get into it with BET," he says to Shay Diddy on San Francisco radio station KMEL. "We did not have a big ol' argument. Yesterday, I was here doing interviews and stuff like that. The time they say everything could've transpired, I was in the air on a plane, had my documents. I had my lawyers to reach out. I have no bad blood towards BET."
