Mary J. Blige is currently filming the film Mudbound, alongside Carey Mulligan, Garrett Hedlund, Jason Clarke and Jason Mitchell – who you may remember better as Eazy-E in 2015’s blockbuster, Straight Outta Compton. Mary and Jason have been doing press runs together and apparently sparking tons of rumors, and now publications are posting reports that the pair could be an item. Mary, 46, is much older than 30-year-old Jason, but they’re both grown either way! Plus, the singer is fresh out of a long marriage, so a young tenderoni is the perfect way to bounce back!

Jerry Heller’s Lawyer Says ‘Straight Outta Compton’ Led To His Death

Jerry Heller passed away on Friday at the age of 75, due to a car accident as a result of having what’s been described as “a medical emergency” while driving. (His attorney says the family believes it to be a heart attack.) The former manager of N.W.A. had been in the spotlight a lot more in the last year, after the success of 2015’s Straight Outta Compton film. However, he was not happy with the way he was portrayed, and had filed a $110 million lawsuit for defamation of character against the film’s producers, Ice Cube, Dr. Dre and the Estate of Eazy-E. It was dismissed over the summer, however, the judge did say Heller might have a point as it pertained to two scenes, but he had to prove the interaction with Cube didn’t happen and that it was written into the script with malice.

Straight Outta Compton’s Jason Mitchell Accused Of Attacking Woman At Hotel

A woman has accused Straight Outta Compton star Jason Mitchell (aka Eazy-E) of attacking her at a hotel in Boston earlier this week. Police are currently investigating the matter, after they were called to The Ritz by the 18-year-old woman (girl?) who said that the actor grabbed her arms, threw her to the ground by her hair, called her a bitch and fled the scene. Jason may not be totally in the wrong, though.

Most Of Jerry Heller’s Lawsuit Over ‘Straight Outta Compton’ Has Been Dismissed

Last fall, former N.W.A. manager Jerry Heller filed a lawsuit against the producers of Straight Outta Compton, claiming that it was “filled with defamatory lies.” The $110 million defamation of character lawsuit also named Ice Cube, Dr. Dre and the Estate of Eazy-E, but they can rest easy now that a judge has dismissed most of it. However…

(Video) ‘Straight Outta Compton’ Cast Lightly Shades The Oscars At MTV Movie Awards

The record-breaking N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton was infamously snubbed at the Oscars this year, only being nominated for Best Screenplay – which even if hadn’t lost, would have went to their two WHITE writers. After winning the “True Story” award at the 2016 MTV Movie Awards last night, the cast took a second to throw some light shade toward the Oscars, as Eazy-E actor Jason Mitchell first thanked “The Academy,” then corrected it. Check out the clip below. Congrats to the guys on the much-deserved win!

The Academy Claims It’s Not Their Fault The Cast Of ‘Straight Outta Compton’ Wasn’t Invited To The Oscars

As we previously reported, the cast of ‘Straight Outta Compton’ would not be attending this year’s 88th Annual Academy Awards. Their decision not to attend however, had nothing to do with the Oscars boycott that has caused numerous celebs including Spike Lee and Jada Pinkett Smith to announce they would not be attending. The Compton cast reportedly was not invited to the Oscars, the only people invited were the two writers for the film that were nominated. Ice Cube remained unbothered by the fact he was not only snubbed for an nomination but left out of the ceremony all together. However, when The Academy was questioned about their reasoning for the diss, they claimed it wasn’t their fault and passed the buck! More below.

(Video) Ice Cube And Straight Outta Compton Cast Will Not Attend The Oscars Because They Weren’t Invited

Ice Cube remains unbothered by the growing controversy surrounding The Oscars. While actors like Jada Pinkett Smith and Spike Lee have called for a boycott of the 88th Annual Awards show, Ice Cube isn’t worried about boycotting because he wasn’t invited! According to TMZ, the cast of “Straight Outta Compton” will NOT be at the Oscars because the only people invited were the two writers that were nominated. It remains unclear if this was done intentionally or what the Acadmey’s process is for inviting actors, but Cube doesn’t seem to care. He’s been questioned multiple times about the Oscars and his feelings and he’s stuck to his answer, “I’m not worried abut the Oscars.” Sources close to him reveal even if he was invited he would have RSVP’d “No.” The Acadmey has yet to respond about why Ice Cube and the cast were not invited but it’s been reported we can expect to see them at the SAG Awards and NAACP Image Awards.
