Coolio Clan Crisis

Bad couple of months for the Coolio family (of the North Umberton Coolios). First, the rapper’s son, Grtis Ivey, was busted in November on an armed-robbery charge when he allegedly teamed up with a hooker to bust into a Vegas apartment and rob the owner at gunpoint. On March 9, Coolio the Elder was a passenger in a vehicle that was stopped, when police found he had warrants for outstanding traffic tickets—and was taken to the same Clark County Detention Center that held Grtis. Released from jail later in the day, Coolio was spotted in the Golden Nugget. Hey, whatever you need to do to raise that ticket money. … Pool season just isn’t pool season until a septuagenarian ex-mayor says it’s pool season. Oscar Goodman was at Wet Republic—his showgirls in tow—on March 9 to cut the ribbon on the bikiniest time of the year. He did not, we can report with a sigh of relief, wear a mayoral two-piece.
