The Rewind with Jus Nik, keeping you informed on everything that happened in the culture this week:

Carlee Russell:

The 49-hour disappearance of a 25 YO Alabama woman named Carlee Russell is raising some questions. Carlee claimed she saw a toddler in a diaper on the side of the road at night on a highway, went to check on the child, and says she was abducted in the process. Carlee thankfully returned home, but authorities want to know what happened for the 49 hours she was missing. During a press conference, police share reasons why they believe the kidnapping story was a hoax. 

Nene Leakes:

Nene Leake’s son, Bryson Bryant, got arrested in Lawrenceville, Georgia, for possessing fentanyl and then lied about his identity. Through further investigation, police discovered Bryson had more legal issues. He remains behind bars. 

Pras Michel:

Wyclef Jean spoke out about his former Fugees group member, Pras Michel, who was found guilty on multiple charges, like conspiracy and witness tampering. Wyclef shared how Pras is feeling despite the circumstances. Wyclef also hinted at a special project being in the works.

Jamie Foxx:

Jamie Foxx is reportedly working hard to get back to regular life after being hospitalized back in April for an undisclosed medical condition. A report from People Magazine says Jamie recently had a party to celebrate his recovery. Jamie is also the co-star in a Netflix film called, They Cloned Tyrone, out now. 

A$AP Rocky x Rihanna:

A$AP Rocky fuels marriage rumors with Rihanna in his new Pharrell-produced single, “Riot (Rowdy Pipe’n).” In the song, A$AP refers to Rihanna as his wife. He also referred to the mother of his children as his wife last month. It’s not clear if they tied the knot, but they welcomed a beautiful baby boy named Rza last year and this year announced they’re expecting their second child. We love to see it!
