Chris Brown Pens Open letter


It seems that Chris Brown has some things on his mind. His recent twitter beef with Model Tyson Beckford, which was not supported by his fans, may have lead to this open letter. 

I’m Konfuzed,

I always thought I knew the concept of love. Fame and Money can get in the way of that. Most of my issues always deal with love and me being in my feelings. Not to mention me being a dog sometimes. I can’t speak for everyone but I can say that my actions contributed a lot to my karma. Being jealous and angry and controlling. There has been times where I looked in the mirror and hated the person I see. I talk to God a lot now. He’s given me so much and I feel like I waste his gifts becuz of my impulsive personality. The world is full of negativity and I feel I play a part in it becuz of the choices I’ve made or mistakes. I tend to accept the negative or the riff raff becuz I know what it’s like to be a young black “nigga” in America. I always see the good in people even when they don’t see it. I love others more than myself at times. Everything u see on the surface does not reflect what’s inside. This is my white flag. I surrender to life and all its blessings. I refuse to be petty and attention seeking. To know me is to love me. Good Bad UGLY!

Sincerely, Konfuzed



Man Convicted of Attempted Murder of Side Girlfriend


A man in Hartford, Connecticut was not to please with his side girlfriend getting pregnant.  Carlton Bryan took things to the extreme once he discovered that his side girlfriend was pregnant.

According to reports by WFSB in Hartford, Connecticut, Bryan put together a plot to kill the woman who was pregnant with his child.

Bryan, 23, asked the pregnant woman, Shamari Jenkins, to have an abortion after she told him that she was pregnant. However, Jenkins wanted to keep the child and was four months pregnant when Bryan put together a ridiculous plan. Bryan hired his friend Matthew Allen Hall-Davis, 24, to shoot and kill Jenkins.

Jenkins was driving her car with Bryan sitting in the passenger seat when the shooting occurred. Hall-Davis drove beside Jenkins and began firing into the car. Jenkins was shot in the shoulder and the bullet traveled through her body.

Bryan was not hit by a bullet and called 911. Jenkins was rushed to the hospital, but later died. On the next day, Bryan arrived at the scene of the shooting where Jenkins’ family and friends held a vigil for her. He hugged and greeted Jenkins’ family members as if he was in mourning.

But police soon discovered that Bryan was responsible for hiring Hall-Davis to commit the murder. During the trial, Bryan revealed that he wanted Jenkins for sex and wanted to stay with his other girlfriend with whom he has a child.

Bryan was convicted of being an accessory to murder and faces life in prison. Hall-Davis was sentenced to 70 years in prison.

George Zimmerman Suffers Gun Shot


Daily Mail Reports: George Zimmerman has suffered a gunshot wound during an altercation with another man in Florida, according to reports.

The former neighborhood watch officer, who was acquitted in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin in 2013, was seen walking to an ambulance following the incident in Lake Mary on Monday.

Police said his wound was only minor.

‘He walked normally into the ambulance, so he wasn’t being helped or nothing,’ witness Ricardo Berrare told WESH.

The shooting involved two men and happened on Lake Mary Boulevard, police told the channel. A bullet hole could be seen in the passenger window of the vehicle carrying Zimmerman.

The 31-year-old has repeatedly made headlines for altercations following his 2013 acquittal. In that case, he was accused of murdering Trayvon Martin, a 17-year-old unarmed black teenager, in Sanford, Florida in February 2012, but he claimed he had acted in self defense.

The Department of Justice cleared him of Civil Rights violations in connection with youngster’s death earlier this year – and Zimmerman responded by saying he did not feel guilty for the killing.

‘Only in a true life-and-death scenario can you have mental clearness to know that you cannot feel guilty for surviving,’ he said in a video released by his law firm.

Since his acquittal, Zimmerman has been arrested several times by Lake Mary police.

In September 2013, his estranged wife, Shellie Zimmerman, called 911 and claimed he had attacked her father and threatened he with a gun. She decided to not press any charges.
