SPOTTED@ LOHUD.COM

Malcolm Shabazz, the grandson of late civil rights leader Malcolm X, was killed in Mexico on Thursday, a close family friend said.

Shabazz, 28, is perhaps most widely known for intentionally starting a fire that killed his grandmother Betty Shabazz, 63, Malcolm X’s widow, in Yonkers in 1997.

He died of injuries suffered while being robbed in Tijuana early Thursday morning, according to media reports.

Terrie M. Williams, a Mount Vernon native who now runs The Terrie Williams Talent Agency in New York City, has worked closely with the Shabazz family and confirmed the man’s death.

“I’m confirming, per the U.S. Embassy, on behalf of the family, the tragic death of Malcolm Shabazz, grandson of Malcolm X,” she wrote on her Facebook and Twitter accounts. “Statement from family to come.”

Reached at her agency, Williams told The Journal News she had worked with Shabazz for a number of years.

“I mentored him and he did a lot of work with us in terms of speaking to young people,” Williams said. “He was a very, very powerful brother.”

Officials at the U.S. State Department’s Bureau of Consular Affairs did not immediately return a request for comment on the death.

Betty Shabazz was living in Yonkers when her grandson set fire to the apartment in which she was sleeping. She was seriously injured in the blaze, succumbing to those injuries three weeks later, on June 23, 1997.

DAYUM!!! JUDGE SENTENCES LAURYN HILL TO 3 MONTHS IN PRISON ALTHOUGH SHE JUST PAID $970K IN TAXES JUST YESTERDAY!!!

Lauryn Hill Court Appearance

We were really hoping the best for Lauryn Hill but it just didn’t work out. Lauryn Hill was sentenced to three months in prison today from the judge for not paying taxes from 2005, 06 and 07.

Hill pleaded guilty last year to not paying federal taxes on $1.8 million earned from 2005 to 2007. Two weeks ago, a judge confirmed that Hill had paid only about $50,000 of more than $500,000 she owes. She faced up to 3 years in prison.

On Monday, Hill explained to the judge that she had always planned to eventually pay the taxes but was unable to during the time; as she had walked away from the music business. She made similar statements in an online posting made last year after pleading guilty.

“I needed to be able to earn so I could pay my taxes, without compromising the health and welfare of my children, and I was being denied that,” Hill said Monday.

Before the sentencing, her attorney said Hill had paid more than $970,000 to satisfy the state and federal tax liabilities, and he was seeking probation.

In addition to three months in prison, Hill must serve an additional three months in home confinement

CHRIS KELLY’S VERY TRAGIC LAST VIDEO MADE ONLY HOURS BEFORE HIS DEATH…IT’S EVIDENT THAT CHRIS WAS ON HIS WAY OUT…LISTEN TO HIS LYRICS!!

SOURCE: TMZ.COM

Hours before his death, a drugged out Chris Kelly attempted to rap … and spit out lyrics about a room full of dead bodies … and TMZ has the sad footage.

The video — shot in Kelly’s Atlanta home around 7:00 AM on May 1 — is a window into the life of a drug addict. There’s crap strewn all over the house … and several seemingly drugged out people just hanging out.

One of Kelly’s guests — who also seems inebriated — pulls out a camera and begins to record as a discombobulated Kelly struggles to rap along with music pumping through the speakers.

We’re told the song is a track Kelly had been working on recently — and includes the lyric, “We don’t stop, for nothing or nobody … look around you it’s full of dead bodies.”

Hours after the video was shot, someone in Kelly’s home called 911 and told officials the Kris Kross rapper passed out and wouldn’t wake up. He was pronounced dead around 5:00 PM.

According to the police report obtained by TMZ, Kelly’s mother told cops Kelly had been mixing cocaine and heroin the night before he died.

COCAINE AND HEROIN SUSPECTED IN DEATH OF CHRIS KELLY OF GROUP KRISS KROSS!!

TMZ.COM

Kris Kross” rapper Chris Kelly had been using a combination of cocaine and heroin the night before his death, this according to the police report obtained by TMZ.

According to the report, paramedics initially responded to Kelly’s Atlanta home around 3 PM EST — after his mother called 911 asking for medical assistance.

When help arrived, paramedics found 34-year-old Kelly lying on the living room couch — unresponsive and with “no life signs.” The medics attempted to revive Kelly, to no avail.

Kelly was immediately transported to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead a few hours later.

After the death, cops spoke with Donna Kelly Pratt — Chris’ mother – who told police … the night before Kelly’s medical emergency, he had taken a mixture of heroin and cocaine — commonly known as “speedballs.”

Donna told police she had personally taken Kelly home to recover from the drug use … just as she had done several times before.  Donna told cops Kelly had felt nauseous all morning before passing out.

According to the report, Kelly’s mother and Kelly’s uncle both told investigators the rapper had an “extensive history of drug use.”

Hours before Kelly passed out, he had a phone interview with The Streetz Morning Grind radio show in ATL … and sounded like he was in bad shape.

In fact, Kelly made reference to his hard-partying ways, which seemed to upset the DJ, who was personal friends with the rapper.

Hollywood starlet Reese Witherspoon learned very quickly that her Tinseltown status means nothing in the ATL. When the police pulled Witherspoon and her husband Jim Toth after noticing their silver Ford Fusion weaving in and out of lanes, Witherspoon chastised the City of Atlanta police officer telling her, ”You’re about to find out who I am. Do you know my name?” The officer answered, “No, I don’t need to know your name.”

Witherspoon then fires off, “You’re about to find out who I am … You are going to be on national news.” She got out of the car a couple times before she was finally arrested for disorderly conduct.

Toth was administered a Breathalyzer test and his blood alcohol was .139; the legal limit is .08. He was charged with a DUI.

They were both taken to jail, booked and later released on a bond.

They’re due in court on Monday.
