T.I.’s going back to jail for 11 months!

On Friday, two days after he talked a suicidal man down from an Atlanta skyscraper, the rapper, 30, was sent back to jail for more 11 months for violating the terms of his probation, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports. The rapper left prison this past March after a yearlong stay on federal weapons charges.

Last month, T.I. (real name: Clifford Harris) and his wife Tameka “Tiny” Cottle were arrested in L.A. after cops discovered marijuana in their car. At the time, the hip-hop star was on probation related to his earlier prison stay.

Police in the September bust charged the star for possessing ecstasy, testing positive for opiates and associating with a convicted felon.

On Thursday, T.I. told that he was humbled by his help in saving a despondent man from suicide. “I can’t say it’s the most heroic thing that I did,” he told Us. “It may have been one of the most spiritual moments that I’ve had.”

“Life can send you down very, very, very dark roads,” the star added. “It’s not always pleasant and it seems unlivable even at times.”

PICS: Paris Hilton’s walk of shame!

Here are the pictures of Paris Hilton leaving court this morning after pleading guilty to possession of cocaine.

Paris appeared before a judge this morning, where she plead guilty to two misdemeanor charges; one for cocaine possession, the other lying to a police officer.

E! reports that on both counts, Hilton was required to state exactly what she did wrong. For the first:

“Guilty, your honor,” she said. “I was in possession as well as tell an officer that the bag wasn’t my purse.”

When pressed to state for the record what, exactly she was in possession of, Hilton responded: “Cocaine, your honor.”

As for the second:

“Guilty, your honor,” she pleaded. “I said that the purse wasn’t mine to the officer, your honor.”

In exchange for her guilty plea, Paris must stay clear of trouble for a year, pay a $2,000 fine and perform 200 hours of community service. Paris must also attend a substance abuse program.

Clark County Detention Center Justice of the Peace Joe Bonaventure, told Hilton, “The purpose here is to change your conduct. [The Clark County Detention Center] is not the Waldorf=Astoria.”

“Defendant shall stay out of trouble. Defendant agrees that an arrest for any charge, excluding minor traffic violations for which a citation is issued, shall result in the immediate termination of her probation and the execution of the suspended sentences,” reads the deal.

As to why she misled authorities, a source close to Hilton tells PEOPLE, “At the moment it all came down, she was scared. But since then, she’s had time to think about her actions, and she’s taking this really seriously.”

BREAKING: Paris Hilton pleads guilty, gets a year’s probation in drug arrest!

Paris Hilton just stood before a judge in Las Vegas and plead guilty to two misdemeanors in her cocaine possession case. She was arrested on August 27 after police found cocaine in her purse in Las Vegas.

Paris originally claimed the drugs weren’t hers. Now, she stood before a judge and took responsibility – once and for all. In exchange for the plea deal, Paris must pay $2,000 in fines, be under probation for one year, complete 200 hours of community service and complete an “intensive” substance abuse program.

Asked why the heiress did not fight the charges against her, attorney Chesnoff said, “Miss Hilton accepted responsibility.”

As part of the plea, if Paris gets into any trouble over the next year, she will spend one year behind bars. The judge then warned Hilton, “The Clark County Detention Center is not the Waldorf Astoria.”
