YG’s facing a felony robbery charge for allegedly yanking a dude’s chain off his neck and taking off with the diamond-laced pendant … and we’re told there’s video evidence too. The rapper was in a Vegas court Thursday after a warrant was issued…
Before she became a household name as a result of her alleged affair with Donald Trump, Stormy Daniels made her living as an adult film star and producer.
So it should come as no surprise that she’s cashing in on her newfound fame by performing at our nation’s finest gentlemen’s clubs as part of her flawlessly-titled Make America Horny Again tour.
Unfortunately for Stormy, it seems certain authorities are having trouble separating the politics from the pole.
Daniels was arrested at an Ohio strip club Wednesday night for “allegedly allowing a customer to touch her while on stage in a non-sexual manner.”
She was taken into custody following an apparent sting operation.
Police claim that Daniels “knowingly” touched a female Columbus police officer’s buttocks while topless, thus violating state law.
Not surprisingly, many — including Daniels’ high-profile attorney, Michael Avenatti — believe the arrest was politically motivated.
“Just rcvd word that my client @StormyDaniels was arrested in Columbus Ohio whole performing the same act she has performed across the nation at nearly a hundred strip clubs,” Avenatti tweeted Wednesday night.
“This was a setup & politically motivated. It reeks of desperation. We will fight all bogus charges. #Basta,” he added.
“We expect her to be released on bail shortly. We also expect that she will be charged with a misdemeanor for allowing ‘touching.’ We will vehemently contest all charges.”
Later becoming irate over the situation, Avenatti tweeted:
“Are you kidding me? They are devoting law enforcement resources to sting operations for this? There has to be higher priorities!”
Daniels, who’s known for outspoken social media persona, has been uncharacteristically quiet on the subject of her arrest, likely on the advise of her legal counsel.
She’s suing the president and his former attorney, Michael Cohen, over a non-disclosure agreement she claims to have signed after the tryst.
Trump has denied ever having any sexual relationship with Daniels.
The strip club where Daniels was arrested has declined to comment on the situation.
According to court documents, Daniels posted bail and is scheduled to be arraigned on Friday.
We’ll have further updates on this developing story as more information becomes available.

Between Kellen Winslow II being arrested on 19 charges and LeSean McCoy accused of unspeakable domestic violence, this summer is reminding football fans that some of their heroes … are not.
Now, former NFL quarterback Brandon Browner is charged with trying to kill his ex-girlfriend. This is not the first time that has been accused of violence towards her or others.
He was arrested on Sunday east of Los Angeles. Be warned, folks: some of these details are not for the faint of heart.
According to prosecutors at the L.A. County District Attorney’s Office, the 33-year-old former athlete is charged with attempted murder, first-degree residential robbery, and other counts.
His arraignment is scheduled for July 30.
According to the allegations, Browner broke into his ex-girlfriend’s apartment.
He is said to have chased the woman, physically dragged her back into her house when she attempted to flee, and attempted to smother her with a carpet.
While it sounds considerably less serious than attempted murder of a former partner, he also allegedly stole a Rolex watch valued at $ 20,000.
It is not immediately evident whether or not Browner has an attorney.
Given that he signed a contract worth $ 15 million just a few years ago, it seems likely that he can afford a decent defense team.
Having played for both the Seattle Seahawks and the New England Patriots, he enjoys the distinction of being one of the few players who has been on two different NFL teams who won the Superbowl back-to-back.
Though online sources are unclear as to his exact net worth, many assume that his alleged theft of a Rolex watch was motivated by something other than a need for cash.
Additionally, it is unclear what exactly motivated him to allegedly break into the La Verne, L.A. home of his ex-girlfriend.
But a troubled hsitory may shed light on what went down.
Last September, Marin Foster, who is the mother of his two children, filed a restraining order against Browner.
On her application, she reported that he had broken her tailbone, busted her eardrum, and given her multiple black eyes. She also suggested that he had threatened to kill her, if not in so many words.
It gets worse, in part because the permanent restraining order was not granted.
On May 6 of this year, prosecutors alleged that Browner inflicted “unjustifiable physical pain and mental suffering” on a two-year-old.
Last month, he plead no contest to misdemeanor charges of battery and cruelty to a child by inflicting injury.
If you’re wondering how much our legal system cares about protecting children, he served one day in prison, and three years on probation.
Also, 48 hours of community service and he is forbidden from seeing his victim for three years.
The only good news about this series of horrifying events, which are going to keep us up at night, is that committing a crime while on parole could mean that he spends longer in prison.
Assuming, of course, that his is convicted and actually given a real sentence this time.

Chris Brown put on a concert at the Coral Sky Ampitheatre in West Palm Beach, Florida on Thursday night.
The singer was then put in handcuffs.
Maybe not literally, but the violent artist was taken into custody by police as soon as he walked off the stage yesterday evening.
According to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office., Brown was arrested on an outstanding out-of-county warrant from last year.
Per local station WPTV, the alleged woman beater was booked on a felony battery charge from the Hilllsborough County Sheriff’s Office, stemming from an incident last spring.
This incident centered on Brown reportedly punching a photographer during a paid club appearance when he was serving as the establishment’s DJ.
That does sound like something he would do, doesn’t it?
Brown was released last night on $ 2,000 bail and wasted little time commenting on the arrest like the jackass that he is.
“What’s NEW????? Show tomorrow!!!!,” he wrote, along with a heart emoji.
Chris Brown. Always the victim, right?
The R&B artist’s next tour date is actually scheduled for July 15 at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.
He’s been performing the road since early last month and has been keeping a fairly low profile for several weeks now, barely abusing a single woman during this time.
We last heard from him when Brown celebrated his daughter Royalty’s fourth birthday with baby mama Nia Guzman.
Over the years, of course, Brown has had a multitude of run-ins with the law, starting with physical assault charges from when he punched Rihanna in the face in 2009.
Brown was later charged with felony assault and making criminal threats for this pummeling; he was sentenced to five years of probation and community service.
In 2013, Brown’s probation was revoked after he was involved in an alleged hit-and-run in Los Angeles.
The charges were later dropped, but he was given 1,000 additional hours of community service.
Still, no jail time. Because he can sing and dance really well!
In 2016, Brown was arrested and charged with assault with a deadly weapon following a nine-hour standoff of sorts at his California mansion.
A beauty queen claimed the singer brandished a weapon at her inside his home during this incident — and Brown responded by referring to the police as “idiots” who were part of a “gang.”
He’s a real pearl of a human being.
In 2017, a judge granted ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran a restraining order against the singer for the next five years.
She said in court that Brown texted her violent threats and assaulted her.
“Make sure ya’ll don’t be listening to all this bullsh-t, man,” Brown said in response last year, adding:
“What all them other people on the outside doing, let them do what they doing. I don’t know what the f-ck they talking about.”
They’re talking about you being an awful person, Chris.
At least that’s what we hope everyone keeps talking about.
