Sean Kingston just picked up another L ... and it wasn't cheap. The rapper's been ordered to pay $301,500 to NYC jeweler Aqua Master who sued him over 9 pieces of
jewelry but was never paid. The items included 2 diamond necklaces, a few gold chains, a ring and 2 watches. Making matters worse, Aqua says Sean flaunted the pieces on his IG. Aqua sued Sean back in 2016,
but the rapper never responded to the lawsuit, so the judge issued a default judgment. Aqua says
Sean made a halfhearted attempt to pay ...
sending 2 checks. But they later bounced. Sean's got issues with jewelers over the years.
He was sued in Florida and had already been ordered to pay another jeweler in 2015.
Nicki Minaj's brother, Jelani Maraj, faces up to life in prison for the rape of his stepdaughter but the 39-year-old's lawyer wants the conviction tossed.
According to a report from Page Six, Maraj's sentencing on Tuesday (Feb. 21) was put off for another month after his attorney filed a petition. A Nassau County Supreme Court Judge has yet to rule on the motion to vacate
the guilty verdict. Minaj's brother was found guilty of predatory sexual assault and acting in a manner injurious to a child on Nov. 9, 2017. The child, who was 11 years old at the time, is the daughter of Maraj's then-wife, Jacqueline Robinson. Police say they found Maraj's semen on the girl's pajamas, but according to the defense, the girl and her mother planted the evidence. Maraj's lawyers also argued that the mother and daughter tried to extort Maraj and Minaj for $25 million and claimed that allegations
such as Maraj coaching the girl on how to make anal sex less painful while he raped her were also made up. Reports claimed Minaj was going to testify on behalf of her brother but the rapper never took the stand. It was later reported that Minaj had not had a close relationship with Maraj since he was first charged with rape. In related news, Nicki has taken a break from social media to focus on her new album. The "No Frauds" rapper is reportedly working on the follow-up to her 2014 project, The Pinkprint.
Trey Songz is being accused of striking a woman he was partying with during NBA All-Star weekend ... JAMZ RADIO STATION ATLANTA has learned.
Law enforcement sources tell us the woman filed a police report claiming Trey hit her in the face Saturday night while they were attending a Hollywood Hills party. She claims Trey got upset because she was talking to another man,
and hit her during an argument. We're told she left the party on her own to go to a hospital, and talked to police soon afterward. We're told her injuries were minor. The case will be reviewed by the L.A. City Attorney to determine
if Songz will be charged. We've reached out to his reps ... so far, no word back. The singer was sued in December for allegedly smacking a phone out of a woman's hand in a Philly strip club.
Young Dolph dodged another bullet by being the only in his crew to walk away from a Hollywood gun bust without handcuffs on his wrists ... JAMZ RADIO ATLANTA has learned.
Law enforcement sources tell us Dolph was the only one out of 4 guys to be released during a Sunday traffic stop. We're told the 3 guys he was rolling with were all arrested for possession of a firearm. Dolph was not strapped and, therefore, got off scot-free. We're told Dolph was a passenger in the vehicle,
and was released on the spot while his pals got hauled off to jail. Hopefully he grabbed the keys. The traffic stop went down in Hollywood ... not too far from where Dolph was shot in the ass late last year. Much better outcome this time around.
Considering he also took fire in North Carolina last year, you'd understand why Dolph's friends might be armed. We reached out to his camp ... no word back.

You can say what you want about Birdman, but there's no denying he built a dynasty in 1990s after launching Cash Money Records. A dynasty that, despite its issues,
is still pumping out hits to this day. The Cash Money CEO breaks down how it all came together in his new documentary, Before Anythang: The Cash Money Story, via Apple Music, which dropped Friday (Feb. 16). With Baby as the narrator, the film takes us back to the days before the bling, chronicling his entire life,
helped out by interviews from those who are close to the label founder. We hear intimate stories about his birth, family upbringing and factors that made him the man he is today. It also features throwback footage of CMR during its heyday, with appearances from Lil Wayne, Juvenile, Turk, B.G., Mannie Fresh and more.
“Being young, we just did what we felt we wanted to do,” he says in an early scene. “Couldn’t give, so we took. Uptown, everybody knows each other, everybody knows what everybody’s about. I love my neighborhood. I’ll never leave it.
But I’ma bring you back. Show you the life, before we had anything.” The project is executive produced by Baby and Ronald “Slim” Williams and co-executive producer Vernon Brown.
It looks like Birdman and Toni Braxton might have made it official and could be engaged to be married. The latest development in the rumored
relationship comes from the R&B singer herself, who revealed the news in the new trailer for season six of Braxton Family Values. In the promotional clip, Toni says she has an announcement to make before telling her sisters she engaged and showing off a huge canary-yellow diamond solitaire engagement ring. However,
Toni never confirms who she is engaged to in the brief clip. The Cash Money CEO and the R&B singer first sparked dating rumors back in 2016, when they appeared together at a performance at Atlanta's Fox Theater. Last year, Baby rushed to be by Toni's side when she was hospitalized for lupus. At the time, Toni's mom, Evelyn, seemed excited about the prospect of the two being together. "I think he is a nice man,"
Evelyn said. "I don’t care what others say about him. He is a nice man. He is full of respect." She added, "I met him years ago. Toni been knowing him... 15 years ago something like that. Ever since I’ve been knowing that man, he’s been phenomenal.
So let me say, I hope so." Last October, rumors began to circulate that the entertainers had already tied the knot, but they ended up shooting that speculation down.
