Drake and Diddy Reportedly Fight in Miami, Drake Hospitalized
Did Drake catch a fade from Diddy? Rumors are circulating like Watchtower pamphlets that Puff put paws on Toronto’s finest last night in Miami, sending Drizzy Drake to the hospital. Information is scarce, but the altercation is said to have happened Sunday night outside of Miami’s Liv nightclub. MTV News has an off-the-record confirmation of the fight; meanwhile, Rick Ross’ DJ, Sam Sneaker, spilled on the scrap via Twitter.
Initial reports claim that a drunken Drake was being too friendly with Diddy’s girlfriend, singer/model Cassie. Which may sound believable following Chris Brown’s airing out of his former arm candy Karrueche Tran on Saturday—he claimed she was making secret visits to Toronto while he was locked up. Yikes. Regardless of whether Drake is vying for Trey Songz’s title of “Mr. Steal Your Girl,” Sam Sneaker refutes the rumor. “It definitely wasn’t bout Cassie,” he tweeted. “Yall pray for Drake.”

Elsewhere, Nicki popped up in a Weekend Update segment poking fun at Kim Kardashian’s Internet-breaking Paper magazine cover. She also performed “Bed of Lies” with Skylar Grey, as well as a mash-up of “Only” and “All Things Go.”

John Legend and Chrissy Teigen Feed NYC Protesters
In recent years, John Legend has emerged as an unexpected music voice in America’s ongoing civil right struggle. Yesterday, the singer put his money where his mouth is, and food in the mouths of those in New York City who protested a grand jury’s decision not to indict NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo for killing Eric Garner. Legend and his supermodel wife Chrissy Teigen paid for food trucks to feed the street demonstrators. Chrissy, who happens to be a food blogger, tweeted a link to a location of the trucks. The protests demanding retribution for Garner’s death have persisted since Wednesday, when the grand jury’s decision was announced.
