Dikembe Mutombo Child With Face Tumor Cardiac Arrest During Surgery

EXCLUSIVE

The child Dikembe Mutombo brought to the United States for a surgery to remove a life-threatening tumor on his face, went into cardiac arrest during the operation … TMZ has learned.

Sources familiar with the surgery tell us, at around 6 PM Sunday, more than 6 hours into the operation, 8-year-old Matadi went into cardiac arrest and was immediately taken to the Intensive Care Unit at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in L.A.  We’re told he’s now in stable condition and is slowly recovering.  

The emergency came toward the end of the surgery, which began at 11:30 AM.  

We do not know if the surgeons had completed the surgery, but if it went according to schedule it should have been wrapping up.

Matadi and his family were staying at the Ronald McDonald house in Los Angeles leading up to Sunday’s procedure. Mutombo, who met the little boy during a visit to the Congo, greeted the boy and his family when they landed Wednesday in Los Angeles.

Matadi’s tumor was life threatening.  He was also shunned his community. The child’s parents were forced to pull him from school and keep him confined to his room because of unrelenting harassment.

Reuben Foster Claimed By Redskins After Dom. Violence Arrest

Breaking News

The Redskins have claimed Reuben Foster just days after he was cut by the 49ers following a domestic violence arrest in Tampa Bay over the weekend … the team announced.

As we previously reported, the superstar LB was allegedly involved in an altercation with a female at the Niners’ hotel Saturday night … in which a woman says Reuben took her phone and slapped her in the face.

When the woman spoke with police, she told them Foster had also pushed her in the chest and hit her with an open hand on the left side of her face. Cops say they noticed a scratch on her collarbone.

The 49ers cut Foster following the arrest … with coach Mike Shanahan saying, “Our number one rule is you got to protect the team and he’s put us in a bad light too much.”

Redskins Senior VP of Player Personnel Doug Williams said in a statement they’re very aware of the severity of the accusations, but say Foster could be worth the risk regardless.

“We decided to investigate the situation with Reuben further by claiming his rights after candid conversations with a number of his ex-Alabama teammates and current Redskins players who were overwhelmingly supportive of us taking this chance.”

Doug added, “Let me be clear, Reuben will have to go through numerous steps including the full legal process, an investigation and potential discipline from the NFL, as well as meetings with counselors associated with the team before he will ever have the opportunity to wear the Burgundy and Gold as a player.”

“Nothing is promised to Reuben, but we are hopeful being around so many of his former teammates and friends will eventually provide him with the best possible environment to succeed both personally and professionally.”

Reuben has started 16 games in his NFL career … piling up over 100 tackles.

Michael Avenatti Proclaims Innocence After Domestic Violence Arrest

Michael Avenatti has gone from defending clients to having to defend himself.

Against a very serious charge.

The lawyer – who rose to fame for representing porn star Stormy Daniels in her legal battle against Donald Trump, and who is allegedly running for President in 2020 – was arrested on Wednesday for felony domestic violence.

According to law enforcement insiders who talked to TMZ, Avenatti was taken into custody after a woman filed a police report that claimed the attorney was responsible for her injuries.

These injuries included a “swollen and bruised” face with “red marks” on both cheeks, the website writes.

Also according to TMZ:

The alleged incident took place on Tuesday night, but there was another confrontation Wednesday between the Avenatti and this unnamed woman at a apartment building in the Century City area of Los Angeles.

“I can’t believe you did this to me.  I’m going to get a restraining order against you,” the woman reportedly said to Avenatti on the sidewalk.

Security guards then escorted the alleged victim into the building, only for Avenatti to follow closely behind and claims “she hit me first,” adding “this is bullsh-t.”

The woman in the case had visible injuries, according to Officer Tony Im, a police spokesman.

After speaking to cops who showed up on the scene, Avenatti was placed under arrest.

It’s unclear at this time just what sort of relationship Avenatti had with the woman.

Hours after being taken into custody on the same block where he lives in a skyscraper apartment, Avenatti posted $ 50,000 bail.

He then held an impromptu press conference and strongly denied wrongdoing as he left the Los Angeles Police Department.

“I have never struck a woman. I will never strike a woman,” he told reporters, adding that he is and would continue to be an “advocate” for women’s rights.

He also called the allegation against him “completely bogus” in a statement through his law office and said the following:

“I wish to thank the hard working men and women of the LAPD for their professionalism, they were only doing their jobs in light of the completely bogus allegations against me.

“I have never been physically abusive in my life nor was I last night.

“Any accusations to the contrary are fabricated and meant to do harm to my reputation. I look forward to being fully exonerated.”

avanatti tweet

We’ve been told the alleged victim was NOT Avenatti’s ex-wife, Christine Avenatti-Carlin, who also issued a statement of support through her former husband’s law office.

She says Avenatti is a “good man” who “has never been abusive to me or anyone else.”

As noted above, Avenatti is the lawyer for Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford – and who has said she had an affair with President Trump in 2006.

She has sued to invalidate the Commander-in-Chief’s confidentiality agreement she signed days before the 2016 presidential election that prevents her discussing this fling.

And Avenatti has often spoken on her behalf, via social media and/or television appearances, taunting the President and threatening to expose other illicit behavior.

After news of Avenatti’s arrest broke Wednesday afternoon, the LAPD Tweeted:

“We can confirm that today LAPD Detectives arrested Michael Avenatti on suspicion of domestic violence.

“This is an ongoing investigation and we will provide more details as they become available.”

Larissa from 90 Day Fiance: See Her Mug Shot, Read New Arrest Details

Larissa Dos Santos Lima may have recently called herself a survivor on Instagram, but the Las Vegas Police Department had a different label for this 90 Day Fiance star over the weekend:

Abuser.

As previously reported, the TLC reality star was arrested a few days ago on a charge of domestic battery.

New details (and Larissa’s mug shot!) regarding the incident have now emerged on the Internet.

“On Nov. 10, 2018, at approximately 1:15 p.m., officers were dispatched to a family disturbance at a residence in Northwest Las Vegas,” reads a statement by Las Vegas Police Officer Larry Hadfield.

This statement was obtained by In Touch Weekly and it continues:

“Two people were contacted at the home who were arguing.

“At the conclusion of the investigation, it was determined that Dos Santos had committed Battery Domestic Violence on her husband and transported to the Clark County Detention Center.”

Specifically, Larissa was arrested and detained on one count of misdemeanor domestic battery last Saturday.

She freaked fans out and caused major concerns when she locked herself in a bathroom, added her phone number to her Instagram bio and wrote on social media:

HELP ME …HE TURNED OFF HIDE MY PHONE HELP ME HE WANTS TO CALL THE POLICE HELP ME.

Larissa and her fiance, Colt, it should be noted, met online and are featured on this very season of 90 Day Fiance.

You can tune in each week to see their unusual relationship play out.

According to Larissa, her fight with Colt took place because he told his girlfriend NOT to share any photos of him on her Instagram account.

He said the status of their relationship had to remain a mystery, for the sake of the show.

She then went on to allege that Colt caused some damage in their home the two bickered over this demand — and she also claims that, at some point during their fight, he took her phone away.

That’s when she posted the above plea for help.

After posting a $ 1,000 bond, Larissa went back on Instagram in order to assure supporters that she was fine.

“Hello everyone. Thank you for the support and love. I am safe and resting,” she wrote, adding:

The past 48 hours have been the most difficult in my life. But reading the messages from all of you has made me smile. God bless and thank you. I’ll update soon.”

But, wait, is she still with Colt?

Yes.

“We are together and strong. We just choose [to not] expose it,” Larissa added.

Colt, meanwhile, has also responded to questions and stories about Larissa’s arrest, as well as his role in the incident.

He thinks people on the World Wide Web should stop playing amateur detective and leave the couple alone, basically.

“Self proclaimed internet sleuths who think they are Woodward and Bernstein,” he wrote late Monday on Instagram.

“They are simply people that spread misinformation, lies, and chaos to make themselves look important. They are nothing and will never be relevant.”

We don’t know what actually transpired between Colt and Larissa, of course, but we can say this much:

When you are accused of being at the center of a domestic battery confrontation… you may be best served NOT to come across as hostile in your response to it.

Ice Cube Taunts Donald Trump with New Track, “Arrest The President”

Ice Cube doesn't actually mention Donald Trump by name in his new song.

But the track is called "Arrest The President." 

And the lyrics are a not-so-subtle jab at Trump, and strongly suggest that his days in office are numbered.

Ice cube image

Ice Cube's lyrics, to be clear, do not call for any violence against Donald Trump or his administration.

Rather, "Arrest The President" calls for exactly that — the arrest of POTUS.

"Let’s meet at the White House, run in and turn the lights out, they treat it like a trap house," Ice Cube suggests.

"Arrest the president… You got the evidence," he sings.

He makes no secret of why Trump deserves to be arrested.

"That n—- is Russian intelligence," the lyrics accuse.

Ice cube pic

"Did you know the new white was orange?" Ice Cube quips during the song.

He then accuses: "Boy, you're showing your horns."

This is a reference to Trump's behavior, from his overt racism to his heartless policies, being something Ice Cube would expect from a devil.

"Who you elected is so septic," Ice Cube says, putting Trump's voters themselves on blast.

He also takes aim at Trump's habit of stating provable lies as if they were fact.

"So full of s–t," Ice Cube says. "I can't accept it."

Ice cube disavows trump on twitter

Ice Cube has made his thoughts on Trump clear since before the election.

In August of 2017, an absurd rumor was going around suggesting that Ice Cube had endorsed Trump's candidacy.

The rapper took to Twitter to make certain that no one could believe this absurd rumor.

"I will never endorse a mothaf–ka like Donald Trump!" Ice Cube clarified. "EVER!!!"

Some would remain silent on such rumors, hoping to avoid controversy by speaking out one way or the other.

Ice Cube did not want anyone mistaking him for a Trump supporter.

Donald trump impeachment party whos attending

Ice Cube is hardly alone.

When Snoop Dogg peppered his art with references to Trump's death, he faced backlash from Trump's fans.

He also faced hand-wringing from people who dislike Trump but are, frankly, huge weenies who worry about optics more than anything else.

ice Cube did not backstab Snoop, and instead voiced his support.

"Freedom of speech," he cited in defense of his friend and his friend's controversial music and imagery.

Notably, Ice Cube's lyrics "play it safe" in a way unlikely to earn him a visit from Secret Service.

Ice cube in shades

Ice Cube may have produced this song simply to vent about the hellish nightmare-world that we all occupy.

More cynically, perhaps he just wanted some cash and some good press from people who hate Trump as much as he does.

It's also possible that he is hoping that this song will one day be immortalized in one or more films documenting the rise and fall of Donald Trump.

You know, if Johnny Cash's "When The Man Comes Around" doesn't quite fit a scene, maybe "Arrest The President" will.

It's sure to be a little on the nose — but there have been other, very spot-on songs that have been used years or even decades later in films about the events they describe.

That said, Trump has not yet been arrested. Right now, Ice Cube's song is premature.

Our actual president

That said, there are murmurings that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is expected to make some sort of move this week.

This comes just days after Ice Cube's song dropped.

That said, a lot of people let wishful thinking cloud their judgment.

They may get their hopes up and then feel disappointed.

It's always possible that Trump will resign, or pass away of natural causes in office, or even last the rest of his 4-year term.

Ice Cube's song, though it may give hope to many, may never come true.

We'll all find out together.

90 Day Fiance: Colt and Larissa Fight Leads to Domestic Battery Arrest

Over the weekend, 90 Day Fiance star Larissa Dos Santos Lima was arrested for domestic battery against her husband, Colt.

After Larissa's panicked messages to fans, sent while locked in her bathroom, many expected that it would be Colt who was arrested.

Now that we've heard both sides of the story, we understand a little more of how this arrest went down, and what led to it.

Also, this is not Larissa's first arrest in the last five months.

It sounds pretty toxic, folks.

And parts of this sound a little terrifying.

Beware that there are, obviously, some 90 Day Fiance spoilers here.

1. Colt and Larissa Had a Huge Fight

Colt and larissa on instagram
We have both sides of their argument

2. Larissa locked herself in a bathroom

90 day fiance colt and larissa
She issued what looked like a frantic plea to her followers, saying that Colt had taken her phone and encouraging them to message him to reconnect her.

3. She also seemed afraid that he would call the police

When the police arrived, it was Larissa who was arrested, not Colt

4. it started with Larissa being upset

90 day fiance larissa colt fight 01
Apparently, Colt (probably to avoid spoiling 90 Day Fiance) asked her to not interact with him on social media, which she took personally, and went on an Instagram rant about how it was selfish and hurtful.

5. Colt came home with flowers

This apparently did not have the intended effect upon Larissa, which she says that Colt took poorly

6. Larissa accuses Colt

Larissa showed her followers video of a mess that Colt allegedly made while angry. That is definitely not good.

Christmas Abbott Speaks Out After Arrest: People Are Lying About Me!

Big Brother alum Christmas Abbott was arrested for an alleged attack on her baby daddy’s side piece.

Now, she isn’t hitting back at the allegations directly, but she’s put up a cryptic post.

Christmas is implying that there is more to the story that the public doesn’t know.

Fresh after news spread about her arrest, Christmas Abbott took to her Instagram stories to share a cryptic message.

“There are lies & truth to every story,” her post begins.

“And,” she says. “I’ll share mine when I’m ready.”

If you are part of an ongoing legal matter, publicly commenting is generally considered unwise by any decent attorney.

“Until then,” Christmas continues. “I am being proactive with taking care of my responsibilities to have this matter [resolved].”

Christmas Abbott Instagram story after arrest

Christmas makes it clear where she’ll be directing her attention in the near future.

“I’m focused on providing for Loyal,” she reports.

Her one-month-old baby, Loyal Atticus, should definitely be her primary concern.

“And,” Christmas says, she will be “recovering from a very emotionally challenging pregnancy & difficult delivery.”

No childbirth is easy, but it sounds like she really had a hard time with it.

“Being a single mother is challenging enough,” she writes. “Without the world having an opinion on a situation they know nothing about.”

Christmas’ post may be vague, but her meaning is no mystery.

As we reported earlier this week, the Big Brother alum was arrested after allegedly attacking her baby daddy’s side piece.

According to reports, she confronted the woman, and then “rammed another vehicle multiple times.”

“[Abbott] came to the gym to confront her child’s father’s romantic partner,” documents say.

“Once there, she threw a coffee cup and caused a scene,” the report continues.

“The suspect entered her Mercedes-Benz SUV and proceeded to ram the victim’s vehicle twice,” the document reports.

It concludes: “This caused over $ 5,000 worth of damage to the victim’s vehicle.”

Christmas has had more to say on Instagram this week, however.

“How could I ever get enough of that sweet smile?!” she wrote on Wednesday, beside two sweet glimpses of her wee little baby.

“I literally can stare and watch him all day long,” she confesses. “Just to watch him & maybe see a lil laugh or giggle.”

That’s why they’re so cute, folks.

Christmas gushes: “He simply lights up my heart & makes me so fulfilled!”

She made this post at the same time that everyone was reading about her arrest.

But she made it clear that she just wanted to rave about her baby, not address her rap sheet.

“No teaching point on this post,” Christmas writes.

“Just some simple love & appreciation for my son,” she clarifies. “And all that he brings into my life.”

“There’s moments that are hard as hell,” she admits. “But countless more that are priceless.”

Some might cynically say that Christmas was trying to distract from the alleged vehicular attack by using her baby’s cuteness.

We hope that we do not have to explain that someone allegedly cheating on you is not an excuse for property damage.

In fact, it’s not much of an excuse for anything except a breakup. You can write a diss track if you like.

The fact that Christmas is accused of having confronted her baby daddy’s alleged side piece makes this even worse.

Any cheater — if he really was cheating — should be ashamed, but that other woman doesn’t owe Christmas the time of day.

That said, Christmas was very pregnant at the time of the incident.

While it doesn’t excuse her behavior, hormones can do wild things to a person’s mind.

Her state of mind should probably be taken into consideration if Christmas ends up facing any criminal penalties.
