BUZZ: Rapper Pooh Shiesty faces life in prison; ‘Chopped Junior’ winner dies at 17; more
Rolling Stone reports Pooh Shiesty is facing life in prison for his role in an armed robbery in Florida. The “Back in Blood” rapper, whose real name is Lontrell Williams, is accused of shooting a man in the buttocks during a October 2020 hotel encounter that included a rented McLaren, drugs and high-end sneakers. When Williams fled the scene with two others, a Louis Vuitton bag stuffed with $40,912 in cash fell out of the driver’s seat of the McLaren; investigators say the serial numbers on one of the recovered bills matched a $100 bill flashed on Williams’ Instagram account days before the robbery. In a separate incident, Williams, 21, is also accused of pulling a semi-automatic pistol from his waistband and waving it around the King of Diamonds club in Miami last May, allegedly firing a shot that hit a security guard in the ankle. A trial for a four-count federal indictment is scheduled to begin Oct. 25.
E! reports Fuller Goldsmith, who won the Food Network’s “Chopped Junior” competition three years ago and also appeared on “Top Chef Junior,” has died of cancer at age 17, shortly before his 18th birthday. “We are devastated after hearing about the loss of our Top Chef Junior alum, Fuller Goldsmith,” production company Magical Elves said in a statement. “He was an incredible chef and the strongest kid we’ve ever met. From the minute he was introduced to us, we knew he would make an impact on everyone around him and be a positive force in cooking world.” Fuller appeared on “Top Chef Junior” in 2017, but left before the finale to prioritize his health. “We all Loved Fuller so much!
