Bobby V. was the victim of a carjacking, at gunpoint in Atlanta Tuesday (Jan. 22). One of the suspects has already been arrested. The R&B singer parked his 2013 Bentley outside of the Hot Beats Recording Studio, when he was approached by two men with guns. According to police, the crooner—born Robert Wilson— gave up his car without a fight, and the assailants drove away. He and other witnesses were able to identify one of the suspects, leading to his arrest. Bobby, tweeted about the incident earlier today, and was thankful that he wasn’t killed. “GOD saved me last night.. Thank u Lord life is so precious&we take it 4 granted!! Everything u wanna do, DO IT!pray&be thankful 4 wht u hav!” he wrote. An off-duty lieutenant heard about the incident over a police radio, and found the car abandoned near the MARTA public transportation station.

Even though pro quarterback Tim Tebow didn’t have a particularly awe-inspiring season on the New York Jets‘ bench, that isn’t keeping the football star from expanding his brand. Now, in a recent article from Mashable, it appears that Ludacris has enlisted Tebow to design a line of headphones for his company Soul Electronics. Earlier this week, Luda and Tebow unveiled Tebow’s new line of Soul Electronics headphones at 2013 International CES conference. According to the product description, Tebow’s line of headphones will feature two models – one a more sport friendly version called the Combat+, and the other made for more casual listeners called the Jet. ”I was so interested in having something comfortable I could practice on the field in before games,” said Tebow. “So many headphones can feel good and sound great, but when you’re warming up, they fall off and that is a big distraction. We came up with these Combat models to help you keep that focus. People who try them out will hopefully believe in them. We have headphones for athletes who want to train and some for those who want to fly or even sleep. They are even great for moms who are doing the dishes and listening to their country or gospel music. Whoever you are, whatever you are doing, we have something that fits you.” Tebow will also serve as Soul Electronics’ new brand ambassador. Images of the headphones can be seen below.
