GUNPLAY PUTS DJ ENVY ON BLAST WITH LEAKED PHONE CONVERSATION
Gunplay has put DJ Envy on blast after posting a phone conversation between the two, where the former MMG rapper demanded an apology from the radio host for bringing up his newborn daughter’s GoFundMe page.
While engaging in his car show feud with Rick Ross last week, Envy condemned Rozay for not publicly supporting Gunplay’s GoFundMe or helping take care of his child’s medical bills.
Gunplay wasn’t happy to have his name thrown in the mix and was very offended by the ricochet shot. He demanded an apology on their phone call posted on Monday (May 29) and even threatened to get physical with Envy if that’s what the situation called for.
“Why you talking crazy? About me my brother. What I had to do with anything, and my wife posting a GoFundMe? My baby was sick. She had a heart defect. That has nothing to do with cars. You know I’ll slap the shit out you, boy! Envy, for real, you know I’ll slap the shit out of you, right?
Envy responded: “We can fight, but that’s not the reason I’m saying that… I wasn’t trying to disrespect you. I wasn’t talking about your daughter. If you feel like you were disrespected, I’m talking to you like a man. I would never. If you feel I did, I apologize. That wasn’t my intention.”
Gunplay also demanded Envy make a public apology when he gets back to The Breakfast Club this week. “My wife is affected by that,” he continued. “We sat in that hospital for 28 days. That shit was some real shit. It ain’t even about the money.
“My wife is in panic mode. I told her to chill but it’s cool. We did a GoFund Me — that’ ain’t nothing so don’t bring my child into this my n-gga because then we gon’ be having bad blood, dog.”
Envy repeatedly apologized and explained that he “fucks” with Gunplay and he plans on clearing the air over their issues publicly at some point.
Gunplay’s partner posted a GoFundMe for their daughter who underwent emergency heart surgery in February and they’ve since raised over $30,000 in the time since.

Disney’s ‘The Little Mermaid’ Swims Past $117 Million at US box Office on Opening Weekend
Disney’s live-action movie “The Little Mermaid” brought in $117.5 million at the US box office in the fifth-best opening for Memorial Day weekend in history, according to Box Office Mojo.
The remake of the 1989 Disney animated classic stars Halle Bailey as Ariel. Bailey’s adaptation of the titular character was widely praised by critics, although the movie as a whole got a decidedly mixed reaction. On review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, just 67% of critics gave the movie a favorable review.
Audiences were far more pleased with the film, with 95% giving it a thumbs up on Rotten Tomatoes. But IMDB, which also tracks audience reviews, said it had to adjust some of its ratings overseas after it found the movie was a victim of review-bombing.
“The Little Mermaid” remake has been the subject of controversy in right-wing media and on some social platforms — with users posting racist tropes — because Disney cast Ariel with a black actress. The trailer for the film made its debut earlier this year, setting off a debate about whether Ariel should be Black or White.
Rob Marshall, the film’s director, called critics’ complaints about casting a Black actor “small-minded,” in an interview with Vanity Fair. Many have argued that casting a Black actress in the role helps Black children feel represented in popular culture.
Despite the controversy, the movie was among the most successful films ever to debut on Memorial Day, Box Office Mojo reported. Last year’s “Top Gun Maverick” tops that list with $160 million at the US box office over the long holiday weekend. “The Little Mermaid” was also bested by 2007’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End” ($140 million), 2008’s “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” ($127 million) and 2006’s “X-Men: The Last Stand” ($123 million). Including international ticket sales, “The Little Mermaid” brought in $185.8 million over the weekend.
NICKI MINAJ’S HUSBAND’S SEXUAL ASSAULT LAWSUIT HITS SETTLEMENT GRIDLOCK
Nicki Minaj‘s husband, Kenneth Petty, has allegedly refused to obey a judge’s order to settle his sexual assault lawsuit by Jennifer Hough — and now, his alleged victim is demanding a legal intervention.
Court documents obtained by HipHopDX reveal that despite the previous demands of Judge James R. Cho for both parties to reach a settlement, Petty has reportedly refused to cooperate. As a result, Hough — through her attorney, Tyrone Blackburn — has demanded a scheduling order.
“We are counsel to Plaintiff Jennifer Hough in the above-referenced matter. I write jointly with counsel for Defendant Kenneth Petty,” Mr. Blackburn wrote in his letter to Judge Cho. “As you know, the Court provided the parties with an opportunity to engage in private mediation. The parties participated in private mediation, but unfortunately, we were unable to reach a settlement. We would like to have a scheduling conference with the court to set a scheduling order.” In legal terms, a scheduling order is one that a judge issues before a trial is set to take place that sets legally binding deadlines on when certain events must occur. In many cases — including this one — a scheduling order is usually given so both parties can reach certain deadlines with regards to discovery and admission of exhibits.
An in-person status conference is scheduled for June 12 before Judge Cho, where a scheduling order is due to be issued. Attorneys for both sides are required to attend.
Back in March, it was revealed that Nicki Minaj’s husband was dodging his court-ordered mediation with Hough, reportedly because he kept getting sick.
Petty repeatedly pushed back his court-ordered mediation session after claiming to have come down with an illness — though Blackburn’s letter seemed to suggest that Petty’s claims were mendacious, at best.
The update came after Nicki Minaj’s husband was ordered to settle his ongoing lawsuit with Jennifer Hough last December, who accused him of harassing her in an attempt to curtail her rape allegation against him.
