Jagged Edge member, Brandon Casey, has apparently gone over the edge on a neighbor and has been added to the unfortunate infamous list of R&B singers with anger management issues.

According to TMZ, Brandon Casey allegedly beat up a woman because her child was riding their skateboard outside the singer’s home.

via TMZ:

The woman is Brandon Casey’s next door neighbor, and in court docs she says a fight erupted in her driveway when someone in Casey’s house got pissed about her son skateboarding. The person apparently thought the kid was on Casey’s property.

The neighbor says a heated argument got amped up when 6 people ran out of Casey’s house and “began to pummel” her. She says her husband had to break up the brawl.

She went to court to request, and was granted, a restraining order. Casey must now stay 25 feet away from the neighbor and her family.

The woman says she’s been staying at a hotel for fear of another attack.

Brandon denies any involvement, and says the neighbor has the wrong guy. The neighbor clearly believes it’s him though … because in the docs she references Brandon’s brother and Jagged Edge member, Brian Casey.

She also says “Jagged Edge” repeatedly in a YouTube video she posted of the alleged incident.

All the stars gathered last night to celebrate the Primetime Emmy Awards. The show was held in the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles and was hosted by late-night talk show host, Jimmy Kimmel. The award show aired live on the ABC network.  Jimmy kept the crowd laughing with his monologues in between presenters. At one point he passed out PB &J sandwiches made by his mother to the crowd along with juice boxes.

The show also had its share of ill-mannered jokes and awkward moments. Kimmel made several jokes about how the Emmy’s were diverse and stated: “Let’s Make America Great”. Kimmel even asked John Travolta if he would thank O.J. Simpson in his acceptance if he won. The most awkward moment of the night was when the announcement was made that Dr. Bill Cosby was going to be the next presenter. Dead silence fell upon the crowd followed by numerous confused looks. Kimmel appeared shortly after and stated that Cosby was not there he just wanted to see how people would react.

this is us hey mikey atl

It looks like NBC has a hit on their hands with their new show, This Is Us, which is set to premiere next Tuesday, September 20th at 10pm EST.

HeyMikeyATL had the opportunity last night to go to a pre-screening of the show held at the Regal Perimeter Pointe theater in Sandy Springs; and it was a success. Guest were welcomed with coupons for free small popcorn and drink from the concession stand, along with This Is Us swag including magnets and tissues (which each guest were worn that the tissue would be needed).  And it indeed was needed several times throughout the 45 minute screening.

Via NBC,

“Starring Mandy Moore (“A Walk to Remember”), Milo Ventimiglia (“Heroes,” “Gilmore Girls”) and Sterling K. Brown (“The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story”), this refreshingly honest and provocative series follows a unique ensemble. As their paths cross and their life stories intertwine in curious ways, we find that several of them share the same birthday and so much more than anyone would expect. From the writer and directors of “Crazy, Stupid, Love” comes a smart, modern dramedy that will challenge your everyday presumptions about the people you think you know.

Chrissy Metz, Justin Hartley, Chris Sullivan, Susan Kelechi Watson and Ron Cephas Jones also star.”

This Is Us - Season Pilot

This new “dramaedy” (drama comedy) will puts the good in feel good. With the multiple stages each character is going through co-currently, viewers are bound to laugh and cry within seconds of each other sending the audience through an emotional rollercoaster, you don’t want to get off of.  Beyond the great talent of the actors, the writing is superb. It gives great drama and suspense, from constant time lapse to the ultimate jaw dropping twist at the end of the debut episode, the world, just like those attending last night’s screening, will be on the edge of their seat, greatly anticipating the next episode.

NBC well done! If you haven’t already, take a look at the trailer for This Is Us below.

Brandon Marshall (@BMarshall) Gains An Endorsement Deal from Russell Simmons in the Midst of Losing Two

While the Colin Kaepernick decision of not to stand during the National Anthem seems to be rattling some, others have banded together to show their love and support.

On Thursday night, Denver Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall also decided not to stand for the National Anthem and instead opted to get down on bended knee which surely sent folks into an uproar. As a result of his decision, Brandon lost two endorsement deals – Air Academy Federal Credit Union and Century Link.

Brandon Marshall protest

“We completely respect Brandon Marshall’s personal decision and right to take an action to support something in which he strongly believes. America is anchored in the right of individuals to express their beliefs,” CenturyLink said in a public statement. “While we acknowledge Brandon’s right, we also believe that whatever issues we face, we also occasionally must stand together to show our allegiance to our common bond as a nation. In our view, the national anthem is one of those moments. For this reason, while we wish Brandon the best this season, we are politely terminating our agreement with him.”

Russell Simmons Rushcard

Hip Hop legend and Co-founder of Def Jam Recordings Russell Simmons, stepped up to the plate and offered Brandon Marshall an endorsement deal yesterday. Simmons took to Instagram to announce that Marshall’s message was heard, and that his Rushcard company would be making Marshall an offer. Yes Russell! When one door closes, another one will definitely be opened!

According to ESPN, Brandon Marshall says he will continue to kneel and ‘do what I think is right.’

Connecticut apparel company PG Sports sent out a tweet late Tuesday saying that it, too, would make Marshall an offer:

We are officially offering @BMarshh54 an endorsement deal! We’d love to have him on the

I am super excited that Brandon Marshall’s opportunities are not fading away. Our first amendment right is freedom of speech and this is Brandons way of voicing how he feels! Kudos Brandon and let the endorsement deals continue rolling in!
