Rumors are beginning to fly that Aftermath’s Carson native allegedly had an affair with actress Katie Holmes. ;) Speculation of these events began when a leaked phone call of Holmes’ spouse, Tom Cruise, calling Bishop Lamont and threatening him. To add more fuel to the fire, a clip from an upcoming issue of People Magazine addresses the possibility of a “hush-hush” affair between Holmes and Lamont, including a rumored sex-tape between the two. At press time, neither of the aforementioned individual’s have made an official comment on the matter.
This wouldn’t be the first time one of the Good Doctor’s prized artists found themselves immersed in trouble or controversy. In the early 90’s, Snoop Dogg was on trial for murder and in 2000 Eminem stood trial for pistol whipping a bouncer outside a club. Bishop already made people talk with the controversial street album “Nigger Noize” he released to fans in 2007. A street album that even had MTV ask: “Bishop more controversial than Eminem?”. It seems the controversy will only get deeper as Bishop plans to release a new street album titled “Team America: Fuck Yeah!” with Indef by the end of November. The mix-tape is slated to have appearances by Nate Dogg and Warren G. among others.
Bishop will also release the follow-up to his critically acclaimed street album “Caltroit” with Black Milk early next year, titled “Caltroit: Metropolis”. Also planned for 2010 is his eagerly anticipated debut, “The Reformation”, scheduled to be released after Dr. Dre’s “DETOX” album. Dre as well as label mates Eminem and 50 Cent are said to appear on “The Reformation” among others.
