R&B singer Keyshia Cole is making headlines Friday (September 19) after spending a few hours behind bars for an assault in California.
Prior to posting $46,000 bail, Cole landed in jail for allegedly attacking someone at rumored rap executive boyfriend Baby’s home.
Keyshia showed up at a swanky condo complex in West L.A. at around 5 AM. We’re told she went there to see Birdman — the CEO of Cash Money — who she’s reportedly dating. Our sources say … for some reason security let her go up to Birdman’s penthouse and when she got in she saw another woman and went nuts. We’re told Keyshia attacked her … leaving scratches all over her face. Cops were called … and Keyshia was arrested for battery and an outstanding reckless driving warrant. (TMZ)

Diddy’s Revolt TV faces viewership and money issues in face of the Comcast and Time Warner merger.
We’ve seen Diddy‘s Revolt TV brand all over the net since its inception last year, but it looks like the TV network itself is having trouble increasing its viewership.
The network, which brought The Breakfast Club to TV, will celebrate its one-year anniversary next month, but they’re facing issues in terms of bringing up their audience from the original 25 million household base. NY Post reports that the possible Comcast and Time Warner merger is stunting their growth, because it is making it more difficult to get other cable companies to pick up Revolt.
Without having additional cable companies carry their network, Revolt is having trouble getting a wider array of advertisers, which puts them in a money crunch. On top of which, the fact that many viewers use the internet for their video content these days doesn’t help.
“The good news is that we had deals in place with Comcast and Time Warner Cable,” CEO Keith Clinkscales said. “They have been excellent partners. However, the merger discussions caused the whole industry to slow down. There’s a general wait and see on a lot of things.”
Despite Revolt TV facing a bit of financial difficulty (which is common in start-up companies), Diddy is doing just fine for himself. Earlier this week he purchased a $40 million home.

Maybach Music Group’s Wale has stepped forward to speak out on his relationship with locked up labelmate Meek Mill following a publicized feud earlier this summer.
According to Wale, MMG head Rick Ross played a part in bringing the peace to their situation.
”He was just like, ‘Man, what? We ain’t talking ‘bout this right now.’ The crazy thing about it, Meek ended up going to jail like two days later. So it’s like bad. You have an argument with somebody and then something bad happen and you like, ‘Damn.’ So it was bad for me in that regard.” (“Russ Parr Morning Show”) Despite Meek going at Wale’s neck, Ross recently said he ironed things out between both MMG artists.
“It’s a misunderstanding. As soon as the tweets went out, I spoke to both of them on the phone. Those two guys, they’re brothers. At the end of the day, they’re brothers and it’s time to turn up right now. It’s time for all of us to turn up and stay turned up, you know what I mean? But it’s all love between those two and everybody knows that.” (Bullet Media)
Ross also explained how the feud may have been sparked due to both artists growing independently.
“That’s why you seen whatever was said, the little brotherly jabs and then that was it. That’s all you’re going to see. They’re two real dudes, two successful dudes, and we all came from the same place. When I first brought them on the team, we all drove to our first video set together. It was just us three, and I felt we all was at the bottom at the time. You know, Wale was in his new situation, Meek in his first situation, and me in my very first situation being a CEO, being a bawse with my own label deal. So we all was on the same flow, and once we mention that, it’s all good.” (Bullet Media)
While performing in front of a jam-packed sold out crowd Monday night in NYC, August Alsina had himself what appears to be a serious health scare just moments ago when he fell unconscious during the middle of his set. Security instantly rushed to his side and called for assistance, but August didn’t look to be in any good shape according to witnesses & the IG clip that’s surfaced online (see below).
Details are unknown as for what his current status is or what may have caused his collapse, but let’s just wish he’s okay and that he has a speedy recovery.

LAS VEGAS (Associated Press) — Floyd Mayweather worked far too hard against Marcos Maidana their last time out to have to do it again in the rematch Saturday night.
Mayweather dominated Maidana from the opening bell, using his boxing skills to keep the Argentine off balance and pile up points on his way to a unanimous 12-round decision to retain his welterweight and super welterweight titles before a crowd at the MGM Grand that sometimes booed the lack of action.
It almost came at a cost, though, in a bizarre scene in the eighth round when Mayweather claimed that Maidana bit him on his wrist while they were in a clinch near the center of the ring.
“He bit me!” Mayweather yelled to the Showtime announcers working ringside.
