Former Power 106 Radio Personality Big Boy Cleared To Work For Rival Real 92.3

A Los Angeles County superior court denied Emmis Radio a preliminary injunction to prevent Top 40/Rhythmic KPWR morning star Big Boy (real name: Kurt Alexander) from crossing the street to work at iHeartMedia Urban KRRL until completion of trial in the matter. The court lifted a February 10th temporary restraining order.

The ruling stems from a breach of contract suit (EMMIS RADIO, LLC v. KURT ALEXANDER, a/k/a “BIG BOY”) in which Emmis is seeking millions of dollars in damages. In response to the new ruling, Emmis issued the following statement:

“While Emmis is disappointed with the Court’s ruling and will evaluate our legal options, we are pleased with the Court’s indication that damages are an available remedy at trial. Emmis remains resolute in continuing to protect our legal rights and committed to the continued success of POWER 106.”

Word has it that Big’s first show on The Real 92.3 will be March 9th.  Congrats Big!  We can’t wait to hear you back on air!

VH1 Star Stephanie Moseley Dead Alongside Rapper Husband Earl Hayes In Apparent Murder-Suicide

rapper-suicideRapper Earl Hayes and his wife Stephanie Moseley, actress/dancer on VH1 series, “Hit the Floor,” were found dead in their Los Angeles apartment Monday, according to TMZ.

Multiple reports state that neighbors could hear a woman screaming Monday morning and gunshots. SWAT arrived on the scene and found two bodies believed to be Hayes and Moseley. 

VH1 said in a statement the network was “incredibly saddened” at the news of Moseley’s passing.

“VH1 and the entire ‘Hit The Floor’ family send our thoughts and condolences to her family and friends at this difficult time,” spokesman Chris Delhomme told Fox411.

Burrel Wilks, self described life coach to Hayes, has confirmed the news to press.

“Stephanie was exceptionally beautiful, an absolutely amazing and incredible dancer, and judging by how the other girls spoke about her, a lovely human being,” co-star Dean Cain said. “I’m heartbroken and saddened.”

Hayes was once signed to boxer Floyd Mayweather’s record label and was often seen partying with the famous boxer. Before her VH1 series, Moseley had been a backup dancer for Chris Brown and Britney Spears among other performers.

Chris Brown instagrammed a photo in memory of the dancer with a caption, “RIP baby girl. Danced with me on tour and was always the coolest person. My prayers go out to you and HAZE family.”

“Well, I’m single too!” Brown said. After a brief pause, he added, “F— that b—–!”

Brown was referring to his on-again, off-again relationship with girlfriend Karrueche Tran. While the “Forever” singer seems less than thrilled with his ex, Tran laughed off his comments on Twitter, and implied she was the one who initiated the split.
