NEWS: Future Sues Drake For $1.5M After Getting Kicked Off Tour


Aubrey is in his feelings with the undisputed auto-tune champ Future after the rapper-singer made some questionable remarks to Billboard (the comments have since been removed) during an interview about Drake’s recent Nothing Was The Same LP.  At one point Future stated to Billboard, “Drake made an album that is full of hits but it doesn’t grab you. They’re not possessive; they don’t make you feel the way I do.”  It looks like Drake wasn’t happy with what he read as Future’s comments have now landed him off Drizzy’s upcoming “Would You Like A Tour?” which is set to begin on Friday in Pittsburgh.  Obviously not happy about losing his lucrative spot on the music tour, Future has countered the YMCMB rapper by suing him for $1.5 million.  The auto-tune champ has since been replaced by songstress Jhené Aiko who took to Instagram to announce the news to her fans but quickly removed the posting following it’s initial appearance.

VIDEO: Miguel Leg Drops & Kicks Female Fans While Performing “Adorn” at Billboard Awards

Yes, this really happened tonight in Las Vegas.  R and B artist Miguel took the stage to perform his hit “Adorn” and at one point in the performance got a little too excited and attempted an unnecessary leap of faith across a sea of fans.  The only problem is Miguel ended up coming short and decided to leg drop a fan across the neck and simultaneously kick another in the back of the head live on national television.  However, the singer played it off pretty smooth or as best as humanly possible and continued doing his job while the young lady decided to flee the scene more than likely because she was embarrassed; rightfully so.  Take a look at the clip above to see how it all went down.
