Flesh N Bone, of Bone Thugs N Harmony copped a plea in his domestic battery case and will remain a free man.  Also, Jay-Z will avoid being fined after all.  As previously reported, Jay was being accused of failing to pay insurance premiums for his employees in 2009.  However, he was right, there was a clerical error fueling those accusations.  As it would turn out, is was all one big mistake.

In a update on legend Etta James, the 73-year-old has been taken off respiratory assistance last week.  On Friday, her agent Lupe de Leon released a statement saying “Ms James has been taken off the respirator and is now breathing on her own.  Her blood pressure is normal.  We are happy with this news.  She could be back home next week, but we are not sure.”

Etta James is sadly suffering from Leukemia and was hospitalized about a week ago due to complications.  According to doctors though she is doing better, she will have to remain in the hospital for a least another several days.  By the way, it was De Leon who previously confirmed that Ms. Etta was not only suffering with cancer but also dementia and Hepatitis C.  Our prayers are with her and her family.
