A notorious cartel assassin is dead following a shoot out with police, New York Post reports. 21-year-old Maria Guadalupe Lopez Esquivel, also known as La Catrina, was shot in the neck on Friday after Mexico’s army, National Guard and Michoacán state police raided a safe house where she along with other members fo the Jalisco New Generation Cartel stayed at.
Footage of her murder emerged this week after she was shot. She's seen gasping for air while she's covered in blood as a police officer tries to assure her that she'll survive. "Calm down, kid. The helicopter is coming for you,” the officer said in the footage. “It is coming now, easy, easy, you are going to be OK. Try to hang on.” La Catrina died minutes after the helicopter took off.
La Catrina was known as a high ranking assassin for the cartel who has also been described as an Instagram model that flaunted weapons on social media, along with her good looks. Police said that she was responsible for bringing a team of hitmen from the New Generation Cartel to murder over a dozen police officers in October.
At the time of her death, police claim that she was responsible for paying off cartel members and organizing murders. They also accused her of extortion and kidnapping after joining the cartel in 2017.
David Ortiz’s Alleged Shooting Mastermind Arrested In Colombia: Report
The man was allegedly a drug kingpin.
Back in June of this year, Boston Red Sox legend David Ortiz was shot during a night out in the Dominican Republic. He was eventually rushed to the hospital and survived his injuries although there was a ton of suspicion behind the motive for the shooting. Eventually, a shooter was arrested who revealed that Ortiz was never the intended target and that it was all a hit gone wrong.
For a while, there were reports that a drug kingpin was the mastermind behind the whole thing and according to Complex, that man was arrested today while in Colombia. César Emilio Peralta was being accused by the FBI of trafficking cocaine and heroin through Colombia, Venezuela, DR, and even the United States.
Peralta could be facing a ton of jail time here especially if he's brought to the United States on trafficking charges. As for the shooting of Ortiz, Peralta is only the alleged mastermind so there won't be any charges against him in connection to that. The alleged kingpin goes by the nickname "César the Abuser," and is fairly notorious to the authorities.
Stay tuned for any updates on this case as we will be sure to bring them to you.
Soulja Boy Has Maintained His Sobriety, Quit Drinking Lean: Report
He reportedly spent up to $800 a day on lean.
It’s been quite some time since the world has heard from Young Draco. After serving nearly three months in jail, Soulja Boy was released from custody and retreated into his own private bubble. Fans were used to seeing the outspoken and flashy artist take to social media to brag about his status and wealth, but since he’s returned home, all has been quiet.
The 29-year-old’s manager, Miami Mike, revealed to TMZ that Soulja Boy has been spending his time wisely by taking care of his health. Soon after he was arrested, the rapper began gaining weight, and now he’s 50 pounds heavier than the 130 pounds he weighed when he began his sentence. Mike also shared with the outlet that Drako has also gone sober as he’s quit lean, alcohol, and drugs. TMZ states that the rapper would spend somewhere between $500 to $800 per day on lean, alone.
Earlier this month, Mike shared a video clip of Soulja Boy to let fans know that the rapper wasn’t hiding out. “The Biggest Comeback continues!! He’s just moving different & try”na stay out of the way & trouble,” Mike wrote before saying that a documentary and boxing match against Jake Paul are on the horizon.
Charlie Sheen’s Ex Brooke Mueller Caught On Camera On Wild Meth Binge
The controversial video emerged this week.
Crystal meth is nothing to play with, kids. Point and case: Brooke Mueller, the ex-wife of Charlie Sheen. In footage obtained by PageSix, Mueller was spotted on camera going on a wild meth binge while inside of a disgusting van. The worst part is, reports claim that she went to the van to indulge in her habits while her 9-year-old son with Charlie Sheen sat upstairs in the hotel. In the video, she’s seen crouched inside of a van while fumbling with the meth pipe and a lighter in her hands. The video was from 2018 but sources close to the situation detailed a drug-fuelled day. She allegedly left her son with two strangers that day to run off and find some drugs. She returned about an hour later.

Unfortunately, the news about her drug binge shouldn’t come as a surprise after reports that went public last month that she was spotted purchasing a suitcase full of drugs. “Brooke’s family is very concerned about her relapse and about her safety,’’ a source said about Mueller’s current condition. “They are worried about her pattern of behavior that leads her to put herself in the hands of total strangers.”
From what sources are saying, it seems like her problem has been spiraling out of control for a minute. Hopefully, she gets clean soon.

Moreover, in an attempt to disguise the cocaine as “cheese” according to reports by NPR. Bolsonaro tweeted that he had “no relationship” with the individual arrested and that his team considered the incident to be “unacceptable.” “I demanded an immediate investigation and severe punishment of the person responsible for the narcotic material found on the FAB plane. We will not tolerate such disrespect to our country!” was the translation of what he wrote. Relatedly, Brazil’s Defense Ministry shared with BBC that they were “investigating the facts and launching a military police inquiry.” As such, the discovery of cocaine on the flight crew member was particularly embarrassing for the Brazilian leader considering he campaigned an extreme, no-tolerance stance on drugs and crime.

Lil Pump has announced that he has quit lean…again.
It was in a brief upload tot he socials that the South Florida-bred rapper revealed that he has given up on the popular mixture of cough syrup and soda, while also putting out a blanket statement, condemning his use of any substances.
“Yo guys, I’m making an announcement. I don’t sip no more lean at all. I don’t do no more drugs, fuck all that,” he says in the clip. As he makes his announcement, a woman can be hard congratulating Pump, exclaiming, “Oh my God! Good job, Pumpy!”
Last December, Pump made a very similar announcement, declaring that he would be giving up lean, but soon found himself back off the wagon.
“Hey, I’m Lil Pump, and I kicked the cup. I think you should kick the cup too. Look how skinny I got,” he said in a video on his Instagram Stories. Previously, he made the same joke of “kicking the cup” in April of 2018, tossing a bottle of cough syrup into the pool.
This time around, the clip seemed to be just a little less staged. We’ll see if this round of sobriety lasts for Pump.

Elderly Couple Receive $7 Million Dollars Worth Of Meth By Mistake: Report
An Australian couple left shaken upon receiving an unexpected package with interesting content. According to CNN, the elderly couple unassumingly signed for a package which they later found contained $10 million dollars ($7 million dollars US) worth of methamphetamine. The police confirm the package was sent by accident. “They asked each other if they had ordered anything, and it was quite clear that they hadn’t,” added a senior detective, Sergeant Matthew Kershaw.
Residing on the outskirts of Melbourne, the couple immediately contacted the authorities upon discovering the parcel’s content. Countless bags of a white substance clearly indicated the presence of an illegal drug. Once the police arrived, they counted a total of 20 kilograms of meth. The stated amount only emphasizing the magnitude of the mistake. Kershaw describes the ordeal as “quite incredible to comprehend that someone could be that sloppy.” In consideration of the expected profit the package would have been, the senior detective reckons: “That’s 800,000 hits off the street that we’ve intercepted yesterday which is quite significant.”

Wendy Williams Shuts Down Fan Who Tried To Hug Her During Taping
Wendy Williams got a bit aggressive with a fan.
To say Wendy Williams is having a rough time these days would be an understatement. The controversial talk show host has been living in a sober house while her husband recently had a child with his sidepiece. She's been doing her best to handle the stress of everything right now but unfortunately, she seems quite agitated which clearly is seen in her public persona.
A clip obtained by @teatenders.liv surfaced online earlier today of some behind-the-scenes footage at The Wendy Show. The talk show host was doing a giveaway when she called on an audience member to pick up their winnings. The excited fan darted through the aisles, appearing to be shedding tears of joy before trying to give Wendy a hug who rudely rejects it. "No hugging," she exclaimed at the fan before getting a bit aggressive towards the audience member. There hasn't been a clear cut reason why she was so agitated. After the past few weeks she's had, you'd think the thing she'd need the most right now is a hug.
