RIP Sherman Helmsley (aka) George Jefferson Dies At 74

Posted in 1 on July 24, 2012 by bobbybounce

Sherman Hemsley, who you may better know as George Jefferson, has died at his home in El Paso, Texas at the age of 74. According to TMZ, it’s unclear at this time how he died. Hemsley was not married, and did not have any children.

As a younger man, Hemsley served in the Air Force for four years, and upon his return to Philadelphia worked at the Post Office and took acting classes. Soon after, he moved to New York City and starred as Gitlow in the early 1970s Broadway play “Purlie.” He then landed his role on All In The Family, prior to getting his own spin-off, The Jeffersons, in 1975. That show lasted 11 seasons, running through 1985, and Hemsley kept acting through last year. #ShoutOut #TMZ

Rapper A$AP Rocky was taken into NYPD custody tonight after he allegedly put the smackdown on 2 guys who took pics of him …

According to law enforcement sources … A$AP Rocky, real name Rakim Mayers, had gotten into a verbal dispute with someone in downtown Manhattan, when 2 civilians started snapping photos of the incident.

We’re told A$AP and a friend quickly turned their attention to the amateur photogs … and a full-fledged fight erupted. Our sources say the two victims suffered cuts and bruises with one requiring treatment at a hospital.

We’re told responding officers arrested AR … and he’s expected to be booked for attempted robbery. It’s unclear, at this point, what he’s accused of trying to pilfer.

Rocky is a native New Yorker and member of the hip hop group A$AP Mob. He was nominated for Best New Artist at the BET Awards this year. #SMH #Crazy
