FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - Two witnesses say they saw a car pull alongside a Rolls Royce driven by rapper Rick Ross in South Florida and heard numerous gunshots fired before the car crashed into a nearby building.
A Fort Lauderdale police report released Thursday says witnesses saw three or four people inside an older model, dark-colored BMW before the shots rang out. Neither Ross nor his girlfriend, fashion designer Shateria L. Moragne-el, were injured in the Jan. 28 attack. The bullets mostly struck nearby businesses.
The report also says Ross was armed with a loaded 9mm semiautomatic handgun in his waistband. Ross' real name is William Leonard Roberts II. He did not draw the gun during the shooting.
Police are reviewing video from 20 surveillance cameras in the area for clues.
HAVANA (AP) - Beyonce and Jay-Z are causing a big stir in Havana, where they are celebrating their fifth wedding anniversary.
The music power couple was mobbed by dozens of fans at the renowned restaurant La Guarida on Wednesday night, and police had to step in to keep the crowds at bay.
Waitress Silvia Fernandez said they dined with their mothers and another man she couldn't identify.
She called Beyonce "beautiful, without a drop of makeup."
On Thursday they toured colonial Old Havana and popped into another restaurant that boasts a magnificent rooftop terrace with a sweeping view of the harbor.
They declined to speak to reporters, and it was not clear why they traveled to Cuba.
NEW YORK (AP) - Rick Ross has formally apologized for lyrics some have called pro-rape.
Thursday's apology - in the form of a tweet - came the same day a women's group, UltraViolet, planned a protest outside of one of his sponsors, Reebok, in Manhattan.
In Rocko's song "U.O.E.N.O," Ross raps about giving a woman the drug MDMA, known as Molly, and having his way with her. The song was released in January but just recently began getting widespread notice.
Although last week Ross said his lyrics were misinterpreted, he tweeted Thursday that he doesn't condone rape and apologized for lyrics that were "interpreted as rape."
He also offered "apologies to my many business partners, who would never promote violence against women," specifically mentioning Reebok and UltraViolet.
