I know what you're thinking, Allen Iverson doesn't do music. Here's what The Jewelry Man thinks about what you're thinking: An opinion is like an Escalade.everybody's got one. The Jewelry Man.telling you that you can't deny laughter; when it comes, it plops down in your favorite chair and stays as long as it wants.

In "I just want to be a part of your entourage" news, four people have filed lawsuits seeking a combined $2.4 million from NBA star Allen Iverson, his promotional company, business manager and security team members in connection with an assault at a Hampton nightclub last year.

Oh really EbenGregory.sounds like a recipe for a new Benz and a lump sum check no?

Yes.

The Jewelry Man is informed that the lawsuits stems from a July 9, 2005, event at Crabbers Restaurant and Sports Lounge in which the plaintiffs claimed they were assaulted that night by members of a security team known as "The Horsemen." The group was hired by Iverson, Gary D. Moore and Crossover Promotions Inc., to provide security for the gathering at Crabbers, the civil complaint shows.

And now.the drama.

Here's Stephen W. Bricker, a Richmond-based attorney who represents the four plaintiffs, in a statement to EbenGregory on what happened: The boys were told to leave the club and were walking outside when they were hit. One of them was thrown to the ground, where members of The Horsemen repeatedly kicked and punched him. His face looked like sausage. It was all swelled up. He still has some nerve damage.

And now.point-counter-point.

Here's Allen Iverson to the Daily Press shortly after the incident at Crabbers on what he thought happened: It's real hard for me to do events at home because people see that it's me and they feel like my life is theirs once they see me. And it's not like that. People can't understand when a security guard tells them no. People say they love me, but if you love me then you can understand when somebody tells you no.

That's nice.like knowing that if things get any worse, I'll have to ask you to stop helping me. And speaking of getting some help. each plaintiff is requesting a jury trial and $600,000 in damages, plus legal fees, according to their complaints.

And now.the jewelry.

Not being known doesn't stop the truth from being true.but what do I know, I'm just a jeweler.

PS, A.I. did cut a Hip-Hop CD, so this is a music story.

CIRCUS (n.) A place where horses, ponies and elephants are permitted to see men, women and children acting the fool. And now.the circus.

In "I'm a home-wrecker and I ain't tripping" news, Superhead-the woman held responsible for the alleged break-up of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown's marriage-has started rumors that she's had another affair with the R&B singer.

Oh really EbenGregory.could it be that when Bobby Brown is choosing between two evils, he likes to try the one he's never tried before?

Yes.

Here's Superhead to the New York Daily News on whether or not she's the reason Bobby and Whitney's marriage is like a mixed drink, you know, on the rocks: Look, there are way bigger things in the works than a romance. I'm a businesswoman. Bobby and I are working together on some things.

Okay, riddle me this Superhead.how does slow motion with Bobby Brown work?

Here's Superhead to the New York Daily News on slow motion with Bobby Brown: It's a really tricky situation. He is my dearest friend. But I'm not saying it's romantic. We won't know what it is till we're ready. There's a wife and children involved. I don't want to wreck any marriages. But if a marriage is already wrecked, that's not my fault.

True.any last words before The Jewelry Man turns down the house lights and brings out the entertainment?

Here's Superhead to the New York Daily News on having some controversial last words: So have me and Bobby been intimate? It's none of your business, I'm still celibate. And if you believe that, I'll tell you another one.

That's nice.like knowing that fidelity is a virtue peculiar to those who are about to be betrayed.

And now.the jewelry.

Here's some tasty pink and yellow lemon ice jewelry being dropped by EbenGregory on Superhead using slick lingo to play games and fuel rumors: The trouble with having a Superhead is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it.

And speaking of going to the pool palace.guess who know's how to do it, do it, do it: MySpace.com/ebengregory.

And now.real talk with The Jewelry Man.

Why is it that everything that's supposed to be bad, makes me feel so good? Making the words dance for me is a trick I learned along time ago. And now.I don't waste time learning the "tricks" of the trade. Instead, I learn the trade. But that's another story. I guess what I'm trying to say is.how could something so wrong make me feel so right? But before I beat myself up like Ike.I realize there just isn't any pleasing some people. The trick is to stop trying.

The Jewelry Man.telling you that sometimes I hear the beat, but don't know what to write.

In "Can I talk my sh*t again" news, two Springfield young ladies have filed a civil lawsuit against Mr. Curtis Jackson claiming that they were trampled and buried under a crowd rush and battered when Fiddy jumped into the crowd after being hit in the head with a water bottle.

Oh really EbenGregory.sounds like a case of my neck, my back huh man?

Yes.

The Jewelry Man is informed that Tara Lambert and Nina Gaudioso put a case on 50 accusing him of negligence and battery.

Here's the two Springfield homies to MTV on being trampled and buried because of Fiddy: We were trampled and buried under falling audience members near the densely packed front of the stage. We were also battered by 50 Cent in the melee that ensued when he jumped off the stage. 50 landed on both of us.

So tell me.do you feel like you should get paid?

Yes.

Here's the two Springfield homies to MTV on being hurt and needing to get paid: We were injured in the incident, suffering contusions and sprains and we were placed in fear of their lives. We got hospital expenses of more than $3,000, more than $4,000 in physical therapy costs and $3,000 for MRI scans and other tests, as well as $800 in doctor bills.

Here's Richard Jordan, the attorney of the Springfield homies, to MTV on how settlement negotiations have been going: Settlement negotiations with 50's representative have been going on for some time, but the offers that have been made so far have been totally inadequate.

And here's EbenGregory growing tired of telling the story.
