Rapper Young Thug was arrested Monday on two gang-related charges.

Born Jeffery Lamar Williams, the “Bad Bad Bad” performer was booked into jail and charged with conspiracy to violate the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act and participation in criminal street gang activity, Fulton County jail records show.

The RICO Act charge stems from an alleged offense that occurred on Jan. 24, 2013, while the gang activity charge is from May 12, 2018, the records show.

Further details regarding the charges were not immediately made available.

Young Thug’s attorney, Brian Steel, denied any wrongdoing on behalf of his client.

“Mr. Williams has committed no violation of law, whatsoever,” Steel said in a statement to Page Six. “We will fight this case ethically, legally and zealously. Mr. Williams will be cleared.”

Young Thug, 30, was arrested at his Buckhead home, a spokesman for Fulton Conty District Attorney Fani Willis confirmed. He was charged in a grand jury indictment that identified him and 27 other people connected to his record label as members of the same gang called Young Slime Life and charged some of them with violent crimes including murder and attempted armed robbery.

The billion-dollar princess of the WWE is stepping away for an extended amount of time. WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon is taking an indefinite leave of absence to focus squarely on her family.

As of tomorrow, I am taking a leave of absence from the majority of my responsibilities at WWE. WWE is a lifelong legacy for me and I look forward to returning to the company that I love after taking this time to focus on my family.

— Stephanie McMahon (@StephMcMahon) May 19, 2022

“As of tomorrow, I am taking a leave of absence from the majority of my responsibilities at WWE,” McMahon tweeted. “WWE is a lifelong legacy for me and I look forward to returning to the company that I love after taking this time to focus on my family.”

This most likely refers to the fact that her husband, WWE legend Triple H, suffered a cardiac event last summer that resulted in a near-death experience. Currently, Triple H is back with WWE behind the scenes on a limited basis right now.

Stephanie and her father, Chairman and CEO Vince, are the only McMahons currently still with WWE.

WWE President Nick Khan will assume most of Stephanie’s duties in her absence, according to Wrestlenomics’ Brandon Thurston.

According to PWInsider’s Mike Johnson, “no one but the most inner circle” of the company knew Stephanie’s announcement was coming.

Johnson added that most people in WWE he spoke to were “completely shocked” and “taken aback” by McMahon’s decision.

Sharon Van Etten staged her first-ever late-night appearance Friday to perform “Mistakes,” from her new album We’ve Been Going About This All Wrong, on The Late Show.

Ahead of Van Etten’s Wild Hearts Tour with Angel Olsen and Julien Baker, the singer gave a preview of what they can expect this summer with a flawless, energetic rendition of the standout from Van Etten’s first new album since 2019’s Remind Me Tomorrow.

“Every album is a chapter of my life,” Van Etten recently told Rolling Stone of her new album. “On the last record, Remind Me Tomorrow, I felt like I was in a good place, reflecting on where I was, offering that to others. With this, it’s more, ‘Yeah, this is hard. I don’t have the answers but I’m trying to figure it out. I know you are too.’ More like a collective ‘What the fuck?’”

Prior to the release of We’ve Been Going About This All Wrong, Van Etten revealed she would not release any singles from the LP before it arrived in its entirety earlier this month. “I wanted to approach this release differently, to engage my fans in an intentional way, in an effort to present the album as a whole body of work,” Van Etten said in a statement. “These ten songs are designed to be listened to in order, at once, so that a much larger story of hope, loss, longing and resilience can be told.”

Following a European jaunt in support of We’ve Been Going About This All Wrong in June, the Wild Hearts Tour trio will hit the road starting July 21 in Vienna, Virginia. The trek concludes a month later at New York’s Central Park Summerstage on August 21.
