Here’s what you need to know about the woman who caught the Kardashian spotlight:
She’s serving a life sentence for a non-violent offense.
Johnson was indicted in 1994 for being part of that trafficking operation, alongside over a dozen others. She was convicted in 1996 for conspiracy to possess cocaine, attempted possession of cocaine and money laundering in Memphis and sentenced to life without a chance of parole a year later.

Conor McGregor continues his rants as he promotes his forthcoming fight with Floyd Mayweather. As TMZ shares, McGregor hurled insults at Mayweather for wasting his money on strippers and then mocked Rob Kardashian for doing the same.
“50 strippers on this payroll, this man has,” McGregor said at a media event in Toronto yesterday to promote his upcoming fight. “At least Rob Kardashian only had one. [Mayweather] has 50!”
Although he didn’t say it specifically, it’s pretty safe to bet that the stripper McGregor was referring to is Blac Chyna. Rob and his baby mama, a former stripper, have gone through very public drama in the past several days.
After he went on an online tirade that included leaking her nudes, Chyna got a restraining order against Rob. Today, he reportedly apologized to the Kardashian family for dating her in the first place.
Aside from McGregor, other celebrities like Snoop Dogg and Read more at: http://www.oxygen.com/blogs/boxer-conor-mcgregor-makes-fun-of-rob-kardashian-for-financially-supporting-a-stripper
Blac Chyna got her restraining order against Rob Kardashian. According to TMZ, Chyna and her lawyers appeared in court today. As part of the order, Rob is not allowed to come near Chyna or cyberbully her, which includes posting photos, videos and personal info about her.
“I would like to thank the judge…I’m just gonna get back to co-parenting Dream,” said Chyna following the ruling. Chyna and Rob share a daughter Dream, who was born last year.
Attorneys Lisa Bloom and Walter Mosley, who represent Chyna, held a press conference after the ruling with their client. Bloom called the ruling a “total victory” and underscored that Rob leaking naked photos of Chyna was revenge porn, which she describes as a “form of domestic abuse…and a crime.”
Earlier, Rob went on a social media tirade in which he harangued Chyna for infidelity and posted what appeared to be naked photos of her.

Rob Kardashian could face jail time for posted naked photos of Blac Chyna online during his social media meltdown on Wednesday.
Attorney Lisa Bloom — who won a revenge porn case involving actress Mischa Barton last month — told the Daily News that Kardashian violated a revenge porn law, instituted in California in 2013.
“Revenge porn is illegal in CA and it certainly appears to me that Rob has violated this criminal law,” Bloom said.
That law defines revenge porn as a person having an image of an “intimate body part of another identifiable person, or an image of that person engaged in sexual intercourse, sodomy, oral copulation or masturbation” that is then intentionally distributed with the intention of causing emotional distress.
Kardashian could face six months in jail for misdemeanor charges stemming from the naked pictures, according to the LA Times.
Bloom said that Chyna could also sue for damages.

Anyone who’s even remotely familiar with the Kardashian/Jenner clan knows that they bsolutely love fake hair — so much so that Kylie Jenner even went as far as taking responsibility for making wigs popular — but what you probably didn’t know is that Khloe Kardashian credits weave for keeping her hair healthy.
Refinery 29 reports that in a recent post on Khloe With A K, Khloe revealed that it was weave that helped her grow her hair back after she went through a period of hair loss.
