Content creator Brooke Houts effed up big time when she uploaded an unedited video to her 327K subscribers on Tuesday. The video has sparked investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department. In the video, Houts tells her subscribers that she’s trying to prank her pooch- a Doberman named Sphinx.
When the dog excitedly jumps up to acknowledge her, Houts angrily slaps the dog in the face. You can see her spit on the dog as well. It’s really hard to watch so proceed with caution.
LAPD told PEOPLE Magazine, “We are aware of the incident. Our Animal Cruelty Task Force has received numerous complaints about the video and we are currently looking into the matter.”
But hold up! Pump your breaks. According to updated reports, TMZ confirms that she is being allowed to keep her dog and LAPD animal cruelty division said that the dog is not in any immediate danger. After much backlash on social media towards her, Brooke posted this on response:
According to MTV, they are recognizing the Richmond Virginia native by awarding her the Video Vanguard Award at the 36th Annual Video Music Awards due to air on August 26.
The visionary and music producer will be the first female rapper to win this award. Missy took to Twitter to thank her “supafriends” for their love and support.

On Monday, Jay-Z and Beyonce took some time off to enjoy the summer, with their two year old twins, Rumi and Sir Carter. This definitely falls under Rare Public Sightings category when it comes to the power family, whose mostly always private about the moves they make. The happy family headed to Jay’s home state of New York, where they hit the sand and the surf in the Hamptons to chill, following Beyonce’s massive, whirlwind press tour for The Lion King. We seldom see Jay and Bey’s youngest kids out and about, and while the doting parents made sure that that their little ones were kept mostly covered by sunshades and umbrellas, it was clear that they were having tons of fun. Those tiny matching ruffled playsuits were to die for, too!
The last good glimpse we had of Rumi and Sir was earlier in 2019, when Beyonce included the twins in a montage video about the joys of last year. There the babies were, clear as day, in a snippet of their parents’ secret vow renewal ceremony. Blink and you’ll miss it, but Rumi could be seen giggling, while Sir smiled at the camera as Bey and Jay said “I do” again in the background. “At 36, I became a new mother of three,” Beyonce says in a voiceover. “I breastfed my twins. I renewed my vows with my husband of 10 years.”
Rumi and Sir’s big sister Blue Ivy, who is now seven years old, wasn’t present at the family getaway. They may just have not fit into her busy schedule! After all, Blue just became the youngest person to get on the Billboard Top 100 after appearing on, and writing lyrics to her mom’s new hit, “Brown Skin Girl”. She has a side gig too. Grandma Tina Knowles said at BeautyconLA on August 10 that Blue is a gifted makeup artist who can put even the most influential of influencers to shame.
At the crack of dawn -n-yawnin, on Wednesday morning, supporters of Cyntoia Brown rejoiced at the news that she had been released from prison. But now the sex trafficking survivor’s second chance at life has been overshadowed by concerns about her new husband.The 31- year old was convicted in 2004 and served more than 15 years behind bars for killing the 43 year old Nashville real estate agent who paid to have sex with her outside a fast food restaurant. It’s reported that she was a teenage prostitute and gained national attention when celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Rihanna spoke up about her case on social media.She was granted clemency eight months ago by Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam and released last week.Yona Deshommes, associate director of publicity for Atria, (book publisher), a division of publishing giant Simon & Schuster, Brown got married to Christian rapper Jamie Long while she was in prison.He was also a group member of Pretty Ricky.They did’nt provide details, however the release refers to Brown as “Cyntoia Brown-Long”.The marriage appeared to be confirmed in a series of Instagram posts on Long’s account that create a collage showing the couple smiling and gazing into each other’s eyes. In the photo, it’s been noted that Brown is dressed in a white dress and has diamond rings on her left ring finger.But before the public could wrap their minds around the nuptials or send the newlyweds well wishes, Long’s ex-wife, Pam Long from 90’s R & B group Total, issued a warning to Brown about who she’s really dealing with. According to reports, he and Pam married in 2013 and divorced in 2018.But this is really a serious matter. Cyntoia is someone’s daughter, and her husband is someone’s son. However, should Cyntoia take the advice of the ex-wife? I think she just needs to see if the ex-wife’s word is credible. After all, there is nothing wrong with leading with caution in a new relationship, right?”This man is diabolical and he is such a manipulator,” the singer said of her former husband who she was married to for five years. “The way this man pursued this woman is the way he did me.”Pam Long was the lead singer in the 90’s R&B trio, Total.She also alleges that while Long claimed to be “a Christian artist”, he’d verbally alluded to her in the past that he only got close to Brown due to her newfound fame and the amount of money he projected she would garner upon her release.”May the Lord God protect her and her money,” she continued. “It’s about who she is in the public eye and what she has. By her having this face in the media it helps him to have a chance to be around what he deems as the elites.”Brown is reportedly working on her memoir, Free Cyntoia: My Search for Redemption in the American Prison System,which was scheduled to be published on October 15 and expected to be a bestseller. The memoir is based on her writings in prison during 15 years of incarceration. The 288-page hardcover version is priced at $26.Brown earned two degrees while locked up, counseled other inmates and started the GLITTER (Grassroots Learning Initiative on Teen Trafficking, Exploitation and Rape) Project.As far as Brown’s safety and privacy goes, her lawyer has declined at this time. Let’s keep our sista in our prayers.
