There's a big hiccup in online fundraising efforts for Keaton Jones -- one GoFundMe page has been shut down altogether, and another's on hold with nearly $60,000 unspoken for. GoFundMe tells us the page labeled "Stand Up for Keaton," which was opened 2 days ago, is no longer accepting donations. Since Keaton's anti-bullying message went viral over the weekend, the page has pulled in $58,249 in donations ...
however the guy who started it is putting the charity on hold. GoFundMe says it needs to contact Keaton's mom, Kimberly Jones, to ensure she's the beneficiary ... since the guy who started the page doesn't know her. So far, the company's been unable to reach her. There was a second GoFundMe page, purportedly started by Kimberly herself which solicited money for Keaton's Christmas gifts. Sources close to the situation tell us that was immediately shut down by GoFundMe due to fraud concerns -- namely,
whether it was really started by Kimberly. Further complicating the fundraising are social media postings from the real Kimberly Jones. As we reported ... photos of her with the Confederate flag and comments about whining "butt hurt Americans" have sparked an online backlash. The guy behind the "Stand Up for Keaton" page even reacted, saying, "THIS IS NOT ABOUT THE MOM!!" He added he doesn't know the Jones family, but just wanted to help a kid who's been bullied.
Chris Bosh's mom tells JAMZ 101.5 HD2 ATLANTA allegations she's trafficking drugs out of the Texas home owned by her NBA star son are ridiculous and untrue ... but acknowledges there is a rift with Chris. We spoke with Freida Bosh and her son, Joel Bosh?, about the police raid on the home where she lives in DeSoto, Texas ... in which cops claim they found evidence connecting Freida's house with a drug trafficking operation. Freida says she "built" the home with Chris roughly 12 years ago -- but since then, their relationship has deteriorated and he's been trying to evict her. Freida says the two haven't spoken in 5 years.
To combat the eviction, Freida says she's had to hire lawyers -- and has been forced to rent out the home to various tenants to cover the pricey legal bills. Long story short ... Freida says the person who brought trouble to the home is a former short-term tenant -- and she had NOTHING to do with his alleged illegal activity. FYI, cops believe crack cocaine and heroin were being trafficked out of the home. No arrests have been made, but we're told that could happen soon. Joel Bosh says he's been trying to help his mom work things out with Chris -- but his priority is
helping her clear her name in the drug trafficking case because he believes she's 100% innocent. Despite the family drama, both Freida and Joel say they love Chris and hope they can reconcile soon.
"Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" production came to a screeching halt after one of its staffers was allegedly run over in a parking lot. Production sources tell JAMZ 101.5 HD2 ATLANTA ... the scary incident went down Wednesday at the high-end Buckhead shops where Mimi Faust and co. were preparing to shoot.

Hannibal Buress seemed like he was trying to do the right thing before getting busted for disorderly intoxication ... 'cause he asked a cop to order him a ride home. JAMZ 101.5 HD2 ATLANTAhas obtained Hannibal's arrest affidavit from his Saturday night bust in Miami, in which the arresting officer describes what allegedly happened before he detained the comedian. The officer says Hannibal approached him with blood shot eyes and a strong odor of alcohol coming from his breath, and then asked the cop to call him an Uber.
The officer says he refused, which caused Hannibal to become angry and belligerent. The cop goes on to say Hannibal then went inside a bar, which the cop says he asked Hannibal to leave since he was too drunk. The two then made it outside, where the officer says Hannibal continued to hurl profanities at him and caused a crowd to form. The cop says he asked him to leave 5 times before cuffing him. As we reported ... Hannibal was released around 6 AM Sunday on a $500 bond. His mug shot was pretty epic, too.
