‘Moesha’ Star Marcus T. Paulk Arrested in AZ for DUI, Drug Possession

The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department and its notorious leader Joe Arpaio had a field day with the Super Bowl in town. Some 24 hours before they hauled in Warren Sapp for allegedly soliciting a prostitute, “Moesha” star Marcus T. Paulk was arrested for DUI and drug possession, reports TMZ: marcus-paulk-mug-shot-2 According to law enforcement sources … Paulk got pinched early Sunday morning by Maricopa County Sheriff’s deputies, and blew a .109. He also allegedly had a bag of marijuana. Paulk was pulled over in Scottsdale for driving dangerously close to emergency vehicles involved in a routine stop. Cops say he failed a field sobriety test … and fessed up he’d been drinking Hennessy and smoking pot earlier in the day. It’s not Paulk’s first legal tangle — the actor was arrested in 2013 for allegedly kicking and punching his ex-GF, but avoided jail time after cutting a plea deal. MP looks higher than a giraffe’s ass in his mug shot!..He needed a time out!

Sapp was also arrested for assault.  We’re told Sapp was taken into custody at a hotel in Downtown Phoenix.
The 42-year-old “Dancing with the Stars” alum was booked just a few minutes ago.

Sapp was in Phoenix covering the Super Bowl for the NFL Network.

It’s not Warren’s first arrest — he was busted in 2010 for domestic battery, but those charges were eventually dropped. He was also arrested for an alleged domestic battery in Miami in 2014.

As we previously reported, officials made it clear before the Super Bowl they would be cracking down on prostitution.

12:21 PM PT — The NFL Network has removed Sapp’s bio from the official “On-Air Talent” section of the website.

No word if Sapp has been fired from the Network yet … but as one source puts it, “It’s not looking good.” 

12:06 PM PT — A rep for the hotel where Warren was arrested tells TMZ Sports, “we were contacted by the Phoenix Police Dept. today in a matter involving a guest.”

“We are cooperating with police as they look into the situation since it is an active investigation. We have no further comment.”
Warren we know you like to sack the quarterback, but you can’t be sackin’ the ladies of the evening! Hut Hut Hike!!!

Sly Stone Wins Millions In Family Stone Royalties

Sly Stone just scored $5 million thanks to a L.A. jury, which ruled the psychedelic funk singer was done wrong by a former manager who pilfered his fortune.

0925-sly-stone-tmz-creditWhen Sly was on the skids, his former manager allegedly convinced him to sign over all his royalties to a company the manager picked … for tax reasons. Sly says the manager assured him he’d be protected.
But Sly says the manager fleeced him, and apparently the jury agreed. The company that got the royalties must pay the frontman of Sly & the Family Stone $2.5 MIL. The manager, Jerry Goldstein, must ante up $2.45 MIL. And the lawyer who worked with Goldstein has to kick in 50K.

Sly has been destitute with severe drug problems … living in his van.

Congrats Sly!!…Let us hold sumthin’!

“The Shield” Actor Michael Jace Kills Wife In Front Of Children During Argument Over Money

imagesMichael Jace and his wife were locked in an angry argument over money before he allegedly murdered her … law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

We’re told “The Shield” star was facing serious money problems and it became a source of family conflict.

There’s certainly evidence showing there was great financial stress. TMZ has learned Jace filed for bankruptcy in March 2011. He filed for Chapter 13, allowing him to restructure and reduce his mortgage payments.

Jace owed $411K on his South L.A. home where he shot his wife. Jace stopped paying his mortgage and was on the brink of a  foreclosure sale……according to documents obtained by TMZ.

Jace’s bankruptcy settlement allowed him to drastically lower his monthly payments, but he went delinquent again late last year.

As TMZ first reported Jace called 911 last night and said he shot his wife in the face, allegedly while his 2 children watched.

RIP….It’s real in the field….



Jay Z and Solange Knowles Spotted Shopping For Jewelry

Jay Z and Solange Knowles went looking for jewelry together Tuesday afternoon at a high-end NYC jewelry store, according to TMZ.

Sources connected with the store say Jay and Solange were in Mr. Flawless, where they were looking for women’s jewelry for around 20 minutes.

We’re told the pair showed no signs of strife, and looked at gems with Mr. Flawless himself. They looked, but tried nothing on. They left the store without buying anything.

Jay and Solange didn’t talk much inside the store … they pretty much just browsed quietly.

We are hella confused now! So Solange attacks Jay Z, Beyonce doesn’t stop her, Bey leaves the party with Solange while Jay rolls solo, Beyonce post a Bible verse about relationships on her Instagram account, Bey and Jay show up at the Nets game Monday night like nothing’s wrong, Solange’s name no longer appears on the artist page on Roc Nation’s website, Solange deletes all pictures of Bey from her Instagram account, now Jay and Solo are spotted going jewelry shopping!? Where do they do that at!? #FamilyBusiness
