Dave Chappelle and his stand-up appearances are without a doubt a hot ticket no matter where he’s performing, and a Charlotte couple tried to score big for Chappelle’s Valentine’s Day show. After getting scammed out of $ 500 on Craigslist, Chappelle personally delivered the tickets to the victims and even kicked it with them a bit.

Local outlet WBTV reports:

On Thursday night, Dave Chappelle hand-delivered tickets to his Valentine’s Day comedy show to a Charlotte couple who were scammed out of hundreds of dollars trying to purchase the tickets on Craigslist.

Not only did Chappelle hand-deliver the tickets, he sat down to chat with the couple and took time to take pictures with several people in the hotel restaurant.

On Wednesday, WBTV reported that a south Charlotte wife and mother claimed she paid a seller on Craigslist hundreds of dollars for tickets to see comedian Dave Chappelle at the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center, but never received the tickets.

Deidra Dickens thought she scored the deal of a lifetime on Craiglist to surprise her husband, Eddie, who is a huge fan of the comedian. However, the whole thing was a sham but Chappelle managed to save the day.

In video captured by the news outlet, Chappelle had dinner with the couple and posed for flicks for fans in a big-time show of class and grace. Way to go, Dave Chappelle.

Happy Valentine’s Day indeed.

Amber Rose Speaks Out For The First Time About Alleged Use Of Her Image To Lure Women In Sex Scam

Model and actress Amber Rose says she was “extremely outraged” and “in shock” when she learned last week that a company reportedly used her name and image to try and lure aspiring models into prostitution. ”I’m all for women empowerment and to see something like that, it made me really sad because I always wanted to be a model when I was young, and I was young and easily manipulated, just like these girls. Thank God I didn’t fall into anything like that,” she tells The Doctors in an exclusive interview.

According to reports, a woman said a company was trying to entice her into prostitution after she responded to an Instagram post soliciting models “for a paid celebrity photoshoot and clothing line.” Those who responded to the post reportedly were told Amber Rose was helping select the models and were set up on a fake FaceTime call with her. Then, the company tried to set the models up on dates with “rich” men and sent text messages telling the women if they agreed to be intimate, it would help them land better opportunities. TMZ has reported that the Los Angeles Police Department is investigating to determine whether a crime was committed.

In the video above, Amber explains how she first learned of the scam, and offers words of advice for aspiring models and actresses. “If you are getting hit up by a [social media] account that is not verified, or you are not actually meeting that person, you have to know that this is a scam,” she warns.

To see Amber’s entire interview, tune in to The Doctors on Friday.

Widow Says She’s In Love With Online Suitor; Stepdaughter Believes It’s A $200,000+ Scam

Seventy-year-old Kaye recalls meeting “Aaron,” the man she now calls “the love of my life,” on a dating website in March 2014. “The first time I heard his voice, it was like fireworks went off,” she says. “When he says I love you, it just gives you chills.”

Kaye says they’ve been “dating” for a little over a year, although they’ve never met in person. But she says that doesn’t bother her and that she can’t wait to marry “Aaron” — who she says is a retired airline engineer, aviation instructor and entrepreneur — as soon as he returns from the United Kingdom, where, as she explains, he claims he is stuck dealing with “business issues.” Eager to help him, Kaye admits she has sent “Aaron” thousands of dollars.

“I know in my heart, I believe it with everything I have within me, that he will be here,” Kaye says. “I don’t know when, but he will be here.”

But Kaye’s stepdaughter, Kathy, says she doesn’t believe “Aaron” really exists — and she’s concerned her stepmother is being scammed to the tune of $ 200,000.

“My stepmother, Kaye, was like a mother to me. I spent every day with my mother until this ‘Aaron’ guy came along,” Kathy says. She claims that she learned from others that her mom was marrying “Aaron” and was devastated. “I cried and cried and asked her why she didn’t tell me. She got very rude and told me I was nothing to her. It was none of my business. I knew something was drastically wrong.”

10 Clues Your Online Lover Could Be A Scam Artist

Kathy shares why she believes her mother is being duped. “In one breath she told me she met ‘Aaron’, and in the next breath she said she had never met ‘Aaron.’ I knew right then this person was scamming her,” she says. “I became very suspicious that my mother was giving ‘Aaron’ money, because she was selling my dad’s belongings. My mother finally admitted two weeks ago that she was sending all this money to ‘Aaron.’”

Kathy turns to Dr. Phil for help saying, “I want this man out of her life totally and completely forever.”

Watch the video above as the women come face to face, and see more from the show here. And, on Friday, Dr. Phil tries to unravel the mystery and find out who “Aaron” really is and if Kaye may be getting scammed.
