Snoop Dogg Says He Wasn’t Threatening Gayle King Over Kobe Interview

Published

on

(TMZ) — Snoop Dogg says he was NOT threatening CBS anchor Gayle King over her Kobe Bryant interview — but the record shows he did make a somewhat threatening comment.

The rapper took to IG Saturday to clarify a video he posted a few days ago criticizing Gayle for an interview she did with WNBA player Lisa Leslie. Snoop made what many perceived as threats against her, but now … he claims he didn’t and means her no harm.

Snoop says he’s a non-violent person and was raised better than that. He insists he was only speaking on behalf of people who felt disrespected by Gayle’s interview and was only going from the heart. Snoop says all he wanted to do was point out she was out of line.

What’s interesting is that he claims he never threatened her — and only told her Kobe’s fans were “watching” her — but his own words seem to contradict him here.

What Snoop said verbatim … “Funky dog head bitch. How dare you try to tarnish my motherf***in’ home boy’s reputation, punk motherf***er. Respect the family and back off, bitch. Before we come get you.” This came after a tirade against Gayle coming after black men, but not being as enthusiastic to grill people about Harvey Weinstein (in Snoop’s eyes).

Maybe he was speaking figuratively, but the fact is … “come get you” can be seen as a threat, even if it isn’t meant seriously. Regardless, the criticism appears to have opened the floodgates for others who’ve allegedly made death threats against Gayle.

Gayle herself came out and said the clip was taken out of context from a much longer and wide-ranging interview, and that she felt CBS had screwed her by releasing a clip showing just that part where she pressed Lisa about the rape claim against Kobe.

While Gayle feels the clip was unfairly represented, it doesn’t take away from the fact she did push Lisa about that topic — and felt it was, in fact, appropriate to do so in the moment.

Either way, it sounds like Snoop wants anyone who might’ve jumped on his bandwagon to stand down and relax. Hear that, everybody?

Jason Davis Death Case Looks Like Possible Heroin Overdose

Published

By

(TMZ) — Jason Davis ‘ death has authorities thinking he might’ve overdosed on heroin — a drug he’d been addicted to in the past and once kicked … TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources familiar with the investigation tell us … Jason was found unresponsive in his bathroom around 10:30 AM. We’re told there were items nearby that were consistent with heroin or opioid use — including burnt tin foil and other paraphernalia.

An official cause has yet to be determined — we’re told an autopsy and toxicology analysis still needs to be conducted, but for now … authorities are treating his death as a possible OD. It makes the situation all the more tragic, as Jason had battled addiction … and in 2011, he was even arrested and charged for allegedly having heroin on him.

Those charges were eventually dropped after he completed a drug diversion program. About a year before that, he’d been featured on “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew,” where he attempted to get clean. We got him on camera around the time his criminal case was being worked on, and he talked sobriety with us — saying at the time he’d been off drugs for almost a week.

Jason went on to cofound a charity called Cure Addiction Now, which he’s said to have been heavily involved with running.

Jason was most known in Hollywood as the voice of Mikey Blumberg on the long-running Disney Channel show, “Recess.” He’d acted in several other movies and shows as well.

The guy was just 35. RIP.

Snoop Dogg Apologizes To Gayle King Over Kobe Bryant Comments

Published

on

(TMZ) — I WAS DISRESPECTFUL Snoop Dogg is issuing a public apology to CBS anchor Gayle King after ripping her for the Kobe Bryant interview … and he wants to hash things out in private.

Snoop Dogg is issuing a public apology to CBS anchor Gayle King after ripping her for the Kobe Bryant interview … and he wants to hash things out in private.

Snoop just issued his mea culpa to Gayle, saying the way he came at her with a profanity-laced social media rant was out of line.

As you know … Snoop went nuclear on Gayle last week, heavily criticizing her for an interview she did with WNBA legend Lisa Leslie, which included a question and follow up about Kobe’s 2003 sexual assault case.

Now, Snoop admits he was wrong for lashing out at Gayle — who says she’s getting death threats for the Kobe question — and he says he overreacted because he was rife with emotions and angry at her line of questioning.

Snoop says he was just trying to defend Kobe because Mamba can’t defend himself, but he regrets the way he expressed his feelings.

As for why the change of heart … Snoop says his mom gave him some sage advice. He added … “2 wrongs don’t make it right.”

In his initial rant, Snoop called Gayle a “funky dog head bitch” and asked her, “How dare you try to tarnish my motherf***in’ home boy’s reputation, punk motherf***er? Respect the family and back off, bitch. Before we come get you.”

Snoop later backtracked and said he didn’t mean anything as a threat … and now he’s saying sorry and hoping to sit down with Gayle to chat behind closed doors.
