Reality Star Deelishis Husband Orlando Gordon Indicted On Drug Charges!

Orlando Gordon has been indicted on federal charges. Items seized in the probe include jewelry belonging to Gordon’s girlfriend, Deelishis, who is not charged.

Detroit— Two accused drug dealers indicted recently in federal court allegedly are involved in money laundering and helped run the downtown nightclub Envy, which was raided by drug agents, according to court records obtained by The Detroit News.

The records indicate drug agents have spent almost five years investigating a large-scale drug ring and seized more than $1 million cash, classic cars and more than $130,000 in jewelry.

The haul includes a Rolex watch and engagement ring belonging to alleged drug dealer Orlando Gordon’s girlfriend, Deelishis, a Detroit native who in 2006 won the VH1 reality show “Flavor of Love 2.” The show featured women vying for the affection of Public Enemy rapper Flavor Flav.

The revelations surfaced days after Gordon and more than a dozen others were indicted in federal court and accused of participating in a drug operation involving thousands of pounds of cocaine and marijuana.

Federal court records chronicle a colorful back story to the high-profile drug bust and indicate Gordon headed the drug ring with a second man, Wendell Tobias of Detroit.

“This was a major drug trafficking organization that distributed cocaine and marijuana throughout the region,” U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration spokesman Rich Isaacson said. “There are aspects of the investigation that are continuing so that’s all I can comment on at this point.”

Tobias, 44, meanwhile, is at large and has not been arraigned in federal court.

The investigation sheds light on the shadowy underworld of Detroit’s club scene and riches that prosecutors say were generated by drug deals.

It is the latest controversy to engulf Envy. The nightclub and other downtown hotspots drew police attention last summer following several shootings, assaults and allegations of drug crimes either inside or in the area.

In May, Courtney “Cortez” Smith, a 20-year-old Wayne State University student, was shot and killed near Envy as he distributed fliers promoting a party at the club. Police have arrested two men.

Envy appears shuttered. A “For Sale” sign adorned one wall outside the club on West Larned between Washington and Shelby recently and plywood covered each window.

Before it closed, Envy was one of several locations used to peddle drugs by Gordon, 31, whose nickname is “Haus the Boss,” according to prosecutors.

RIP: Etta James Passes At 73 Of Leukemia

1x1.trans RIP: Etta James Passes At 73 Of Leukemia

Etta James, the R&B singer whose raw, passionate vocals anchored many hits and made the yearning ballad “At Last” an enduring anthem for weddings, commercials and even President Obama, died Friday. She was 73.

James had been suffering from dementia, kidney problems, and battling leukemia. In December 2011, her physician announced that her leukemia was terminal, and asked for prayers for the singer. During her illness, her husband Artis Mills and her two sons fought bitterly over control of her $1 million estate, though a deal was later struck keeping Mills as the conservator and capping the singer’s expenses at $350,000.

James died at Riverside Community Hospital, with her husband and sons at her side, De Leon said.

1x1.trans No Restitution For Jackson Family From Dr. Conrad Murray!

Conrad Murray, the former personal physician of Michael Jackson who is currently serving a four-year jail sentence for causing the singer’s death – no longer has to worry about the prospect of paying Jackson’s family millions of dollars.

Prosecutors for the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office has withdrawn the request for restitution from Murray, following the family’s decision not to pursue it, a spokesperson for the DA’s office confirms to TheWrap.

No reason was given for the decision, reports Reuters. But there’s a good chance that the singer’s famikly realized that there was no way they would collect. During Murray’s late November sentencing, prosecutors asked for restitution in excess of $100 million, an amount reflecting what Jackson would have made during a string of dates in London which the singer was rehearsing for at the time of his death.

During the sentencing, even the prosecutors conceded that it would be impossible for Murray to repay that amount.

On Heath’s untimely death:

“It was making me crazy. I felt like I was going crazy. It was too much; trying to deal with what had happened and trying to deal with what was at our doorstep. I just felt trapped. And it’s not just me; there’s somebody else who I’m trying to protect [daughter Matilda], and I can’t. I can’t make it stop, I can’t make it go away. Trying to find ways to explain it or shield her from it. It’s like you’re trying to go about your life, and make dinner.”

On her and Heath’s romance:

“Our initial meeting, the circumstances of how we first met, were cosmic or something. Yeah, a lot of things happened at once. It’s a bit like: We had a lot of things to do, because we didn’t have a lot of time, or something.”
