"The Life And Times Of Prophecy"
Lupus LA held their annual Celebrity Poker Tournament and Party, “Get Lucky For Lupus LA” at the Petersen Automotive Museum last night, and quite a bit of Hollywood turned out for the cause.
The event was sponsored by Coca-Cola, and brought out folks from all four corners of the Industry. Some of the guests included Karina Smirnoff, Peta Murgatroyd, Kim Lee, Melissa Molinaro, Shanna Moakler, Verne Troyer, Quinton Aaron, Slash from Guns N’ Roses, Ryan Cabrera, Camryn Manheim and Melissa Joan Hart.
Other folks included Josh Altman from Million Dollar Listing with his girlfriend Heather Bilyeu, Borat star Ken Davitian, Omar Benson Miller from Eminem’s 8 Mile and 50 Cent’s Get Rich Or Die Tryin’, Shaun Toub from Iron Man and The Last Airbender, James Denton from Desparate Housewives, Jose Canseco Industry newcomer, Rochelle Vallese from Alien Armageddon and a slew of others.
One expected celeb that everyone was hoping for, but never showed, was Jennifer Love Hewitt.
And while all came out to support such a great cause as the fight against Lupus, I couldn’t help but have a moment of remembrance for Christopher Wallace, more greatly known as the Notorious B.I.G., whose life came to a close in front of the Petersen Automotive Museum on March 9th, 1997, and putting a close to the East Coast / West Coast War which also caused the loss of Tupac Shakur.
Yet another night to remember.
25 year-old British Hip-Hop Artist Kevin Georgiou, otherwise known as “K. Koke” was arrested in connection with shooting a man in the back in Harlesden Train Station on March 9th, strangely the same landmark date as when Jay-Z lost one of his best friends to gunfire, Notorious B.I.G.
Jay-Z signed the artist in January to his Roc-Nation label under the RCA umbrella. K. Koke grew up in the Stonebridge section of London and often raps about the violent lifestyle he grew up in, resembling life in the projects of most artists who grew up in New York. The artist deal for K.Koke was a joint venture between Roc Nation and Koke’s own Suspect Entertainment (probably not a great choice of words for right now), which was formed in 2005.
Georgiou is the 5th person arrested in the shooting incident, and is due to appear before Blackfriars Crown Court on June 15.
