Will Smith Wishes Jada Happy Birthday with Disco Pic

*It was a Boogie Nights themed birthday shout out to Jada Pinkett Smith from her famous husband.

Will Smith on Friday posted the above pic to Facebook in honor of 43rd birthday on Sept. 18. It shows the pair striking a Travolta-esque pose in disco-themed ensembles – then and now.

Smith captioned the pic: “Happy Birthday, My Love. We’ve been together at your last 20 birthday parties. Let’s go for 50 or 60 more.”

Charlo Greene In Legal Dispute with Neighbor Over Her Pot Smoking

*She wanted publicity? Well, she got her wish…and everything that comes along with it.

TMZ sniffed out a current legal case involving weed advocate Charlo Greene, the Alaskan reporter who quit her KTVA job live on-air saying, “F**k you, I quit,” so she could draw national attention to her cause – the legalization of marijuana.

According to TMZ…

Greene allegedly smoked so much pot at home that her next door neighbor’s kid got violently ill … and now they’re warring in court.

Tyler Gilbrech tells TMZ … Charlo and her boyfriend moved into the apartment above his in June, and claims she immediately started stinking up the place with so much reefer … his 4-yr-old daughter became violently sick from the fumes seeping through the walls.

Tyler says he ratted Charlo out to the building manager, and that’s when things got ugly.

According to court docs … Charlo harassed and threatened Tyler several times — telling him to “watch his back.” Tyler filed for, and got, a temporary restraining order against Charlo two weeks ago.

She’s since moved out of the building, and has to stay at least 20 ft. away from Tyler and his family. A court hearing is scheduled for later this month.

Charlo claims Tyler is the one harassing her by hurling racial slurs (he denies that) — and says she wanted to file a restraining order of her own, but was too busy because she has a job.

Stabbing Follows Chris Brown Performance in Hollywood

*Another Chris Brown event has ended with someone going to the hospital.

A person was stabbed following his performance Monday night at the Supperclub in Hollywood.

According to TMZ, the incident took place at an afterparty for the Drake/Lil Wayne concert. Several people who were leaving got into a fight and one of them ended up stabbed, the website reported. The victim was rushed to a hospital and is expected to recover.

TMZ reports:

Law enforcement sources tell us they didn’t make any arrests because no one would ante up any info, which leads to the bigger issue. Our cop sources say they believe this is all about Brown’s entourage. Wherever they go … someone ends up bleeding.

We’re told the LAPD has privately met with club owners, trying to pressure them into blacklisting Chris and his crew, but the clubs make too much money off them so they’re welcome with open arms.

As one law enforcement source put it, “When Brown and his people show, we know what’s going to happen. It’s a headache for us.”

Brown — who does not keep his association with the Bloods a secret — has not been accused of instigating the violence, but cops say they know it all emanates from the singer and his entourage.

You’ll recall three people were shot — including Suge Knight — during a Chris Brown performance at 1OAK last month.

Nicole Beharie: Why ‘Sleepy Hollow’s’ Time Gap Jokes Never Get Old

Nicole Beharie On Why Sleepy Hollow’s Time Gap Jokes Never Get Old

*All of the false murder confessions, zombie George Washingtons and purgatory dollhouses of Fox’s hit series “Sleepy Hollow” aside, half the fun of the show is watching Abbie [Nicole Beharie] watch Ichabod Crane [Tom Mison] make sense of our modern day silliness.

A scene from Season 2, for example, has “Ichabbie” in a bank when the 18th century soldier spots a pen attached to one of the countertops, then goes on a Kanye-like rant when an employee tries to sign him up for a credit card.

“These people entrust you with their fortune, yet you cannot entrust them with a simple inkwell?” he said.

And he was just getting started. [Scroll down to watch.]

Executive producer Mark Goffman says those particular scenes aren’t just for comic relief.

“It’s less about [Ichabod] reacting to modern technology like, ‘Oh, isn’t that funny that he doesn’t understand a gadget?’ and much more a social commentary, to me at least, about how somebody who was around and was mates with our Founding Fathers and here at the beginning of our country and fought for that – and now what he’s seeing in our society, and getting a social commentary.”

Goffman continues, “That’s where both him and Abbie together are so interesting to have that conversation, as they did from that very first episode in the pilot when he said he was for emancipation. We have an episode where we’ll get to see Abbie go to the polling booth and vote, and Crane gets to see voting. He gets to learn to drive, which was actually inspired by Tom, who’s learning to drive.”

Below, Beharie gives us her take on the show’s time gap social commentary:

“Sleepy Hollow” Season 2 begins tonight, Sept. 22, at 9pm E/P following the series premiere of “Gotham.”

Ravens Owner: Ray Rice Behind ESPN Article Claiming Cover-Up

Steve_Bisciotti_Press_Conferece_Ray_Rice_Video

*Baltimore Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti has addressed ESPN’s “Outside the Lines” article that broke over the weekend claiming that he tried to cover up attempts to have the league go easy on Ray Rice with just a two-game suspension after learning he knocked his then-fiance unconscious in an elevator.

Addressing the media, Bisciotti said he strongly believes the sources for the ESPN article were Ray’s attorney, Ray’s agent and Ray’s friends — who gave the info to ESPN in an effort to get Ray reinstated into the NFL.

Bisciotti says the allegations in the ESPN article are false, but says he believes Ray’s team would push the false stories out because the best way to build a case for reinstatement is to “make everybody else look like they’re lying.”

“The majority of the sources are people that work for Ray,” Bisciotti said. “Almost everything in there is anonymous, but it’s clear from the subject matter that it’s Ray’s attorney, it’s Ray’s agent, it’s Ray’s friends.”

“Outside the Lines” reported Friday that Bisciotti, Ravens president Dick Cass and general manager Ozzie Newsome tried to persuade NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to be lenient on Rice following his February arrest.

The Ravens released Rice earlier this month after TMZ released the second video. The NFL suspended Rice indefinitely shortly after he was released by the team.

According to the OTL report, Ravens coach John Harbaugh urged team officials to cut Rice immediately after the first TMZ video, which showed Rice dragging Palmer out of the elevator, was released in February. The report also indicated Harbaugh went to Newsome in March and asked him to release the three players who were arrested this offseason, including Rice.

Minutes before the news conference, the Ravens issued a lengthy rebuttal to the OTL report. Included in the Ravens’ statement:

• Harbaugh said he did not recommend cutting Rice after seeing the first videotape, as OTL said he had urged his bosses. “I did not recommend cutting Ray Rice from the team after seeing the first videotape,” Harbaugh said in the statement. Newsome, in the statement, said: “Neither John nor anyone else ever recommended cutting Ray Rice before we saw the second videotape on September 8.”
• The Ravens director of security denied that he received an account of the incident “within hours” of the incident. In the statement, he said that within “a couple of days,” he asked the casino and the Atlantic City policy for a copy of the videotape and he was turned down. He said that, on Feb. 25, a police department official offered to view the tape and “describe what he saw.” He said the official described both of them as intoxicated, but that “the officer could not tell from the video whether Ray slapped or punched her, but Ray told me very clearly that he did not punch her.”
• Newsome said that he and Rice talked and that Rice told him he hit his then-fiancee, but that they did not “discuss details beyond that.” “I immediately focused on Ray taking responsibility and making amends,” Newsome said. “I later said Ray didn’t lie to me because he told me he hit her, and that is what the video later showed-although the video was much more violent than what I had pictured.”
• Bisciotti and Cass denied that they lobbied the judicial system in New Jersey or Goodell to go easy on Rice. “That statement is not true,” Cass said.

Bisciotti also addressed OTL’s report that he texted Ray Rice – one day after cutting him –  basically offering him a job down the road, a move that Rice interpreted as “hush money” and left Rice “flabbergasted.”

Bisciotti confirmed the text exchanges but said they were “told to someone and misquoted” by ESPN in the article. He then published what he says are texts in “verbatim” form.

“I did have an exchange of text messages with Ray, which he initiated,” Bisciotti said. “I felt awful about what had happened. I believed he was, at heart, a good person, that he was capable of redemption, and I wanted to tell him I would be supportive of him. Here are the texts, not as told to someone and then misquoted in the article, but verbatim.”

Those texts, per the Ravens release, read as follows:

Monday September 8, 7:44 pm

Ray: I understand the decision but I am thankful for what you have done for me and my family. Me and my wife will continue to work on us and being better but I just wanted to say thank you for giving me a chance

Steve: I’m sorry we had to do this. I still love you and believe that you will be a great husband and father If you ever need to talk just call

Tuesday September 9, 10:27 pm

Steve: I just spent two hours talking to Ozzie. It was all about you. We love you and we will always figure out a way to keep you in our lives. When you are done with football I will hire you to help me raise Great young men. I still love you!!!

Ray: I know it’s a rough time for all of us I love all of you and that will never change for life!

Steve: I will help you make it a great life indeed. I give you my WORD

Ray: That means the world to me and my family we greatly appreciate you and thank you.

At his press conference on Monday, Bisciotti addressed the idea of trying to pay off Rice.

“If I cut a guy making $6 million a year — if I’m promising him to be by his side and hire him for $100,000 a year five years from now so he can help Harry Swayne in our player development department — if that is considered worthy of him going along, I find that rather absurd because it would take him 250 years to make back the $25 million that I took away from him by cutting him.”
