“Real Housewives of New York” star Luann de Lesseps says Russell Simmons can’t keep his hands to himself. Find out what she said about the Hip Hop mogul “groping” her, plus an update on Trey Songz’s alleged assault inside…
It just keeps getting worse for Russell Simmons.
Over a dozen women have come forward with claims that the Def Jam co-founder either raped or sexually assaulted them. Now, a reality star is coming forward with sexual assault claims.
“Real Housewives of New York” star Luann de Lesseps is opening up about a sexually inappropriate situation involving Russell Simmons. She claims the Hip Hop mogul grabbed her a** when she hopped on an elevator at Soho Beach House, Miami a few years ago.
“He grabbed my ass in an elevator, he was just a pig,” Luann told The Daily Beast.
“I haven’t told anybody about that before. I was grossed out. I was like ‘How dare you.’ He invaded me, he took advantage of me, being who he is, thinking he is all ‘it,’ all everything. He thought he could just do that. I looked at him and said, ‘Don't ever do that again,’” she added.
When the alleged incident happened, Luann did not report it and she said Russell never apologized for it. The site reached out to Russell’s spokesperson Angela Pruitt, but she did not address Luann’s allegations directly. His initial response to the allegations were reissued to the site when she was hit up for comment.
In part, he said:
"They have shocked me to my core as I have never been abusive or violent in any way in my relations with women,” he said. “I am blessed to have shared extraordinary relationships, whether through work or love, with many great women and I have enormous respect for the women’s movement worldwide and their struggle for respect, dignity, equality and power.
"I am devastated by any reason I may have given to anyone to say or think of me in the ways that are currently being described.”
"What I cannot accept is responsibility for what I have not done. The current allegations range from the patently untrue to the frivolous and hurtful. I have submitted myself to multiple lie detector tests. I denied forced sex and sexual harassment allegations brought against me in each test; I also answered no to the question, ‘Have you ever physically forced any woman to have sexual intercourse?’ I passed all of the lie detector tests.
"We have also provided a great deal of detailed evidence to various publications, but have chosen not to make it public, in part for my family and in part out of respect for the millions of women who have suffered sexual abuse, so as not to entangle a critically important social justice movement with every instance of my legitimate right to defend myself.”
Amid the rape and sexual assault allegations, Russell is being sued for $5 million after aspiring filmmaker Jennifer Jarosik came forward with claims that he raped her inside of his Beverly Hills home in exchange to fund her project. He popped back at the rape accuser, labeling her a bad mother. He also said all of their sexual encounters were consensual and that she’s only looking for a quick come up. Not only that, Russell, who stepped down from Def Jam amid the controversy, is also being investigated by the NYPD after allegations of sexual misconduct.
In other legal ish...
Trey Songz just scored a victory, but he’s not quite out of the woods just yet.
According to reports, Trigga will NOT be charged with a felony for allegedly hitting a woman.
Last month, a woman named Andrea Buera claims Mr. Steal Your Girl SMACKED her in the face while partying in L.A. during NBA All-Star Weekend. Following the report, Andrea conducted a conference with her (and everyone else’s) attorney Lisa Bloom, showing off pictures of the alleged bruises. The R&B crooner hopped on social media to claim his innocence.
Well, her story didn’t hold water and the L.A. District Attorney has decided NOT to press charges.
Law enforcement sources tell us ... the singer's lawyer, Shawn Holley, gave numerous witness statements to LAPD that contradicted Andrea Buera's account of events during NBA All-Star Weekend in February.
We're told Holley also provided further info that led to skepticism about Buera's credibility.
The case will now be referred to the L.A. City Attorney, who will decide whether or not to charge Songz with the lesser charge of misdemeanor domestic violence.
So yeah, no felony, but he’s not completely out of the drama just yet.
Tiffany Haddish had some fun with Harvard University students after news that she’s executive producing a new show about Instagram influencers. Get those deets, plus info on Chance The Rapper hitting the stage (but not rapping) at Dillard University inside…
Hanging with the cool kids!
Tiffany Haddish may not have gotten the chance to go to college, but now she’s experiencing what campus life is like.
“The Last O.G.” star stopped by Harvard University to give out some jobs! Well, not exactly. The Girls Trip breakout actress linked up with a few students on campus and they gave her a tour of the Lampoon Castle, the headquarters of the school’s magazine, Harvard Lampoon.
The students must have impressed Tiffany since she gushed about one day offering at least two of them a job to write for whatever project she would be working on at the time. Nice!
She captioned,"I am in Boston and The Great Students of Harvard offered me a tour of the Lampoon Castle. And it was Great I Love these kids they are the future I am sure I will hire at least two to write for my Tv show one day.#sheready #thelastblackunicorn #harvardlampoon"
We wonder if she bumped into former First Daughter Malia Obama on campus. Nevermind. If she did, y'all know she would have posted a picture or at least told us about it.
Speaking of jobs...
The comedienne has booked yet another one. Except this time, she'll be working her magic behind the scenes.
The 38-year-old actress will executive produce a new series titled "Unsubscribed," which is in development at HBO. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series will “examine female blackness, beauty, and identity through a behind-the-scenes look at the Instagram hustle.”
Hmm...this show should be quite interesting.
On top of starring in “The Last O.G.” and being the face of Groupon, Tiffany will also star opposite Kevin Hart in Universal’s Night School, she’s set to star in The Temp and she’s lending her vocals for Netflix’s animated series “Tuca and Bertie.”
In other #YBFu news...
Chance The Rapper is ready to drop some gems on the college grads!
The Chi-town rapper has been tapped to deliver this year’s commencement address to graduates of Dillard University in New Orleans.
Dillard President Dr. Walter M. Kimbrough had nothing but good things to say about the Grammy award winner. She said Chance is a part of a “new wave of artists who can openly talk about faith while being in hip hop, balancing the secular and the sacred.”
“He’s not signed but a multiple Grammy winner,” Kimbrough said, noting that Chance often gives away his music, movie tickets, Jordan-brand tennis shoes and awards to school teachers. “He’s the artist that your grandmother would love.” No lies told.
No surprise that the 24-year-old rapper will deliver an inspirational speech to our future leaders. Makes total sense to have someone who they look up to and is close to their age to give them words of wisdom that they’ll actually pay attention to.

Meek Mill brings his real life woes to life in his new video treatment for his track “1942 Flows.” Peep the clip, plus see how TV host Joy-Ann Reid had to put Killer Mike in his place after he came for her inside…
Over the last five months, Meek Mill and his team have been trying their damnedest to get that “Get Out Of Jail Free Card.” But, he’s still behind bars. Just a few days ago, the District Attorney in Philadelphia co-signed his release so the Supreme Court can decide his release instead of Judge Genece Brinkley. Meek and his team are pissed at Judge Brinkley for keeping him in jail due to her “bias” ways.
With all that going on with his legal issues, the Philly native just gifted his fans some new musical material. No “biased” judge or dirty cop is going to keep Meek from his first love.
The rapper just released the video treatment to his song “1942 Flows,” a cut from his latest album, Wins and Losses. The visuals are art imitating life - well, what Meek hopes will be his life. The introduction shows Meek being bombarded with questions from reporters as he exits the courthouse after his release. We also see Meek supporters holding up #FREEMEEK signs throughout the video. And MMG honcho Rick Ross even makes a cameo.
“1942 Flows” was released on Meek’s website Justice4Meek.com. On the site, it asks vistors to sign a petition demanding his release from jail. Not only that, the petition calls for the release of all incarcerate people with pending PCRA petitions. Click here to sign.
In funnier news...
When trying to check a bout-that-life black woman goes all the way wrong!
Rapper/activist Killer Mike hopped on social media to try and check MSNC correspondent Joy-Ann Reid for supporting H&M. But, he had it ALL the way wrong. Joy-Ann posted a picture of herself with her glam squad, thanking them for the hair and makeup, but she shortened it to H&M."
Killer Mike saw her post, was clearly still bitter about his own recent dragging, and thought he was going to get points for slandering a black woman to get the heat off himself.
He assumed she was referring to the retail giant H&M, who came under fire for putting a black boy in a monkey shirt for its most recent campaign. And his comment (see it above) was straight up disrespectful. And factually incorrect.
Joy-Ann had time and gathered his ENTIRE life. It ended with Mike apologizing and saying he would come on her show to talk about black gun ownership. Nothing like that NRA interview he just did. He apologized for that too. Swipe through above for the exchange.
Everybody’s pregnant! Sheesh. “Insecure” star Dominique Perry, Tyrese, his wife Samantha Lee, Lance Gross and his wife Becca Jefferson are expecting new bundles of joy. Get into their growing bumps inside…
It’s baby season!
Seems like everyone is getting knocked up with blessings.
“Insecure” star Dominique Perry ("Tasha from the bank") is gearing up to become a first time mom. And she let the world know with a fire announcement.
Showing off her gorgeous growing belly in a red hot maternity gown designed by Valerie Best, the YBF actress gushed over the excitement of bringing her own mini me into the world. She's having a baby girl!
“It's like.... I just felt like FINALLY showing you off girl,” she captioned on Instagram.
Mama Dominique admitted she hadn’t plan on having a baby right now, but she's ready to take over the world with her mini. “You weren't in my plans but you were in Gods plans, and for that it's insane how much I love you. Let's take over this world young Queen.... just the 2 of us,” she continued.
It's like.... I just felt like FINALLY showing you off girl. You weren't in my plans but you were in Gods plans, and for that it's insane how much I love you. Let's take over this world young Queen.... just the 2 of us. #firsttimemother #mochamoms by: @petermonsanto makeup: @khamilialevonne Dress: @sewtrendyaccessories
She's not the only one expecting...
Tyrese and his wife Samantha are pregnant! For real this time. This will be their first child together and Tyrese's 2nd. He has a daughter named Shayla Gibson whom he's been fighting for custody for.
The exciting news comes a little over a year after their under-the-radar Valentine's Day nuptials. The couple decided to surprise Samantha's mother with the exciting news and her reaction is PRICELESS. Peep the clip above.
Also expecting a new baby...
The Easter bunny did more than leave eggs behind this year.
Lance Gross and his wife Rebecca Jefferson are expecting baby #2! Aww! Baby Berkley Gross is about to become a big sister. The couple indirectly made the announcement by posting up family Easter pics that showed off Rebecca’s growing belly.
And since the announcement, Lance has been crushing on his pregnant wife…
Cute. Congrats to the Gross Family!
Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson were rumored to possibly be in labor earlier today, but it seems folks jumped the gun. Deets inside...
Earlier today, a report from TMZ - saying Cavs baller Tristan Thompson and girlfriend Khloe Kardashian were likely in labor - had everybody in a frenzy.
Now, we're telling folks to slow their roll.
While baby Thompson is due any day now, today ain't the day.
Previous reports cited Kylie's OBGYN Dr. Aliabadi, who may be Khloe's as well, posting that she had arrived in Cleveland and loves traveling to "care for her patients." Khloe is definitely giving birth in Cleveland.
Also, Khloe posted that the cuople is ready for their baby girl:
It's probably for the best Khloe didn't go into labor today since Tristan and the Cavs were busy beating the Knicks across the county in New York.
Khloe also posted this pic of herself at home just a few hours ago and was bouncing on a birth ball yesterday. So she seems to be still cooking her bun in the oven. For now. She's supposedly due the third week in April.
While a ton of tea was spilled on the first part of the "Real Housewives of Atlanta" reunion show,not much topped Kenya Moore's interesting baby news. Get the latest on what she says about it now, plus that epic showdown with Marlo Hampton.
Congrats are in order!
We can't see a bump (yet), but Kenya Moore claims she and husband Marc Daley are "welcoming a child by the end of this year." On Sunday night's "RHOA" reunion show, she made the reveal that we previously reported she would. But chick made sure to choose her words extra carefully. Which is why we, and plenty of folks, aren't sure what she really meant by it.
In true Kenya form, we wouldn't be surprised if child was a metaphor for something else. Or maybe they're adopting. If she is, in fact, carrying a baby in her tummy, it seems we would be able to see it by now if she's already going public with the news.
There's one thing we know isn't happening: A surrogate. She responded to a fan on Twitter who asked:
No surrogate but maybe my next one https://t.co/7ejd2kMrWO
— KENYA MOORE (@KenyaMoore) April 9, 2018
After her big baby news, which had all the girls except Sheree Whitfield squealing in excitement, Kenya revealed she still hasn't met Marc's family. Well that's interesting, especially considering how much both of them travel back and forth across the country for work or events or whatever else. It's unclear why a stop couldn't be made by a Daley family member's abode.
Kenya had an answer for that too, though. Check it:
Nothing is in a rule book. We are well loved and supported by our families. Congrats to u. People always looking to judge or criticize https://t.co/hoZMOnsc3M
— KENYA MOORE (@KenyaMoore) April 9, 2018
Sheree wasn't the only one throwing some shade Kenya's way. As soon as Marlo walked out on stage, she had a peach to pick with Mrs. Daley:
Chile these were expert, doctoral degree-level reads. Sheesh.
Marlo appears to be unbothered though. So she says:
Eve opens up about how she was drugged at an industry party and an international superstar came to her rescue. Find out who it is inside…
We’re aren’t celebrities over here, but we would imagine if we were celebrities and were at an industry party with people we know and semi-trust, getting drugged isn’t something that’s really on the mind. But, maybe it should be.
The ladies on “The Talk” were dishing about the dangers of leaving your drink unattended when co-host Eve opened up about her own personal experience. The “Let Me Blow Ya Mind” rapper said she was mixing and mingling at an industry party and while making her rounds, she would sit her drink down, chat with friends, and pick it back up. At some point, someone allegedly spiked her drink.
She said after about an hour of mingling, she started to feel weird. Not drunk, weird. She knew something was wrong
“I knew immediately something was different. It was like I was there, but I wasn’t there. I forget who I was with, but whoever I was with, I tapped them on the shoulder and said ‘Something is wrong.’ And they’re like ‘No, you’re just drunk.’ And then I started hysterically crying.”
She was put in a room crying uncontrollably and then she heard a soft voice say, “It’s OK. I’ll take care of it.” She turned around and it was…
Eve said she was SO embarrassed because she was ugly snot crying and all. Peep the clip below:
While discussing the dangers of leaving your drink unattended, @TheRealEve recalls a moment when she unknowingly drank a spiked beverage at a party. Upon realizing that she had been drugged, Eve reveals the woman who came to her rescue - the one-and-only @JanetJackson! pic.twitter.com/hQg1CSo6aT

What a scary situation. Thankfully, Janet was there to make sure she was OK. Sweet!

Kim Zolciak gets everybody's panties in a wad. The "Housewife" is going at it with folks before she even pops up on the next reunion show. And the shenanigans are plentiful.
Everybody's coming for Wig! Y'all know her face has been looking mighty extra lately, so Marlon Wayans just said what we're all thinking.
While Kim keeps insulting our intelligence by telling us her face is au natural, Marlon said NAH. The comedian posted a hilarious comment under a screenshot of her upcoming appearance on part two of the "RHOA" reunion. And she wasn't happy about that ish.
Teeeheeee. Kim always has some shade for somebody else (and throws it well too, we can't even lie), so the fact she couldn't handle this truth serum is quite interesting.
Kim did what Kim does and went the victim route. Not only did her husband Kroy Biermann defend her, but the couple then had "sad face" in front of the paparazzi cameras....and had the audacity to mention the Me Too movement.
Chile! Now that's a TRY, Kim.
Marlon was asked about the debacle, and...just watch:
Marlon's not the only one beefing with Wig. Kandi Burruss came for that a** once again immediately after Sunday's show that Kim wasn't even on. Kim previously said some slick ish about the singer's spinoff ratings and such, so Kandi whipped out every receipt.
Didn't Kim get enough of a read from "I'ma Drag You"-shaky-voice-Kandi on one of the last episodes of the season? Guess not.
Next Sunday should be interesting...
So, get this. The woman who protested topless outside of the Bill Cosby’s retrial KNOWS him. And has known him since she was a little girl. More inside…
Bill Cosby’s retrial started off with BANG!
As Cosby made his way inside the courthouse, a woman ripped her shirt off, showing off the names of Cosby’s alleged victims written all over her body, and ran up on the 80-year-old comedian. She didn't get far before she was tackled by police and arrested outside of the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown, Pa. yesterday.
Watch Cosby, who says he's legally blind, get a peek below:
The woman has been identified and apparently, she knows Cosby!
The topless protester is 38-year-old Nicholle Rochelle, who appeared in four episodes of the “Cosby Show” from 1990-1992 at the age of 12. She played the role of Danielle, a friend of Cosby’s onscreen daughter Rudy Huxtable, played by Keisha Knight Pulliam.
Since her “Cosby Show” appearance, Nicholle, of Little Falls, New Jersey, has starred in several TV shows including Clarissa Explains It All,” “NYPD,” “Law & Order,” and “Chappelle Show” to name a few. She has also appeared in several Off-Broadway theater productions.
These days Nicholle, who is a member of European feminist group Femen, which is known for staging topless protests, is a performing artist and activist who now lives in Paris. She said her showing up to Cosby’s trial was her way of setting the narrative about his case.
“He’s a man who’s disempowered women’s bodies for decades. It doesn’t seem to be recognized,” Nicholle told PEOPLE after being arrested for disorderly conduct. “The case is being publicized with this narrative of race. He’s being painted as the victim. I wanted to emphasize that this is about rape. I wanted to make him uncomfortable and to make people think about women’s bodies.”
She wasn’t going to harm him in anyway, but she did want to take him out of his comfort zone.
“I wanted him to feel something,” she said. “I wanted him to feel what he did and have it be in his face. I wanted to approach him, but I didn’t want to touch him at all.”
Starring on the “Cosby Show,” Nicholle said she didn’t experience any strange behavior on the set. She said she wanted to express the anger of the alleged victims and chose to do it topless to use her body as “a political tool.”
“The protest wasn’t about me knowing him, but there’s a part of me that feels betrayed because I can understand what the victims were feeling. Like, that could have been me, I could’ve undergone the abuse as well,” she said.
Right before she shut ish down...
Nicholle stopped by the "Cosby Show" house in NYC wearing a shirt that said "Hello Friend" (a saying Cosby has coined) with the word "Friend" crossed out and the word "Rapist" written under it.
She said, "In honor of the first day of the Bill Cosby retrial, I went by the address where they filmed The Cosby Show exterior in New York City...LET'S HOPE JUSTICE WILL FINALLY BE SERVED!"
We guess she meant business.

Floyd Mayweather's entourage was shot up the other night in Atlanta, resulting in his bodyguard getting hit. It happened just hours after Floyd & his crew partied with his nemesis' stepdaughter and her homies. Deets inside...
Floyd Mayweather hosted Medusa Lounge in ATL Sunday night (pictured here). And everything was all gravy until his entourage was shot up while returning to their hotel!
Floyd headed to Buckhead in a 3-car-caravan to the swanky Intercontinental Hotel early Monday morning around 3AM. He had stopped at the Waffle House after the club as well, before heading to the hotel.
Then, ish went all the way left. Atlanta police authorities tell TMZ that a car pulled up to Floyd's caravan outside the hotel and fired several shots at one of the vehicles. Floyd's bodyguard was hit and rushed tot he hospital.
Cops says, "Another vehicle pulled up beside them at the intersection of Peachtree Road and Highland Drive and fired several times at one of the vehicles. All three vehicles fled and reported being followed for a distance."
"After losing the vehicle that was following them, the victim's vehicle drove to Grady Hospital where the victim was treated for a gunshot wound to the leg and is in stable condition."
"At this time, it appears that this was not a random shooting and the shooter was targeting the victim’s vehicle."
"The victim advised that he is a bodyguard for Floyd Mayweather."
Cops also believe Floyd was inside the targeted vehicle, but have not gone on record to say he, himself, was the target.
We'll just say, random drive bys don't typically happen in Buckhead. So if one had to guess if the shooters knew for a fact Floyd was in one of those cars, we'd guess so.
Before the shooting, the undefeated boxer looked like it was just another night of securing the bag for him and his crew:
Rapper YFN Lucci snapped pics with Money Mayweather and his new girlfriend, Lil Wayne's 19-year-old daughter Reginae:
Damn homie. Hopefully Floyd's bodyguard pulls through.
It’s a fashion fete! Go inside for flicks of John Legend, Chrissy Teigen and Paris Jackson all smiles at the Daily Front Row LA Fashion Awards. Also, see Naomi Campbell, Joan Smalls, Christian Combs& Lori Harvey rip Dolce & Gabbana’s runway inside…
John Legend and Chrissy Teigen are still waiting the arrival of their new bundle of joy that will join big sister Luna Stephens. As you all know by now, John & Chrissy love doing date night and Sunday’s evening began with hitting Daily Front Row’s 4th Annual Fashion Los Angeles Awards at the Beverly Hills Hotel. The couple sacrificed comfortable quiet Sunday evening at home to support their friend, Jen Atkin, who was presented with the hairstylist of the year award.
Hosted by Derek Blasberg, the award show honors celebrities, stylists, designers and emerging talent.
The “Lip Sync Battle” commentator was all smiles while holding her stomach as she made her way down the carpet, showing off her growing baby bump in a white long sleeved gown by Alexandre Vauthier.
The happy couple will be celebrating their daughter Luna's 2nd birthday later this month. And the new baby is expected to make his arrival in June.
"Empire" star/singer Serayah, who recently realeased a new video treatment for her track "GTTM (Going Through The Motions)," made a splash on the scene in a crimson off-the-shoulder gown. Catch Serayah on a new episode of "Empire" tomorrow night at 8pm EST on FOX.
The little black dress always comes through. Fifth Harmony singer Normani knows a thing or two about it. If you haven’t heard, Fifth Harmony has gone on hiatus, which means, Normani is ready to jumpstart her solo career. She recently signed to Keep Cool/RCA Records and she’s the first artist to do so.
EJ Johnson is always dressed for the occasion.
Oh, hey girl! Paris Jackson, daughter of the late Michael Jackson, struck a pose on the carpet before hitting the stage to present.
It’s spring and “black-ish” star Marsai Martin is on trend. The YBF actress kept it cute in a white Alexander McQueen shirt dress cinched in with a pink Apuje Kalu belt.
Well this is an interesting look from DOPE actress Kiersey Clemons. The 24-year-old has a few new projects coming down the pipeline, including Sweetheart, An L.A. Minute and Untitled The Flash Film.
Model Ava Dash, Dame Dash and Rachel Roy daughter, is still lighting up the fashion scene since being signed to DT Model Management. She rocked a LIONESS dress, ATICO sandals and she topped her look off with a jacket from her mom's collection.
The ladies can work it just like the fellas. Singer Leona Lewis kept it stylish in an Marc Jacobs pantsuit topping her look with a headwrap.
Reality star/socialite Nicole Richie hit the carpet alongside honroee/stylist Jamie Mizrahi.
Issa reunion! Inside, Nicole caught up with her former bestie Paris Hilton.
Nicole's hubby Joel Madden was also in the mix.
Corey Gamble cuddled up to his girlfriend/momager Kris Jenner.
Celebs stopped for several photo-ops together during the soiree. Fun times.
At another fashion event...
Models Joan Smalls and Naomi Campbell took our breath away when they strutted inside the Metropolitan Opera for Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda Women's Couture Fashion Show in NYC. This year’s theme was "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” and the Italian fashion house totally delivered with their bold and funky designs.
Aspiring model Lori Harvey, daughter of Steve & Marjorie Harvey, also hit the runway, adding new shows to her growing model resume.
Models Halima Aden and Ashley Graham were also tapped to walk in the show. And we all know seeing these ladies hit the runway for Dolce & Gabbana is a big deal! They are not your traditional "fashion model" and we love it.
Diddy's son Christian Combs also hit the runway and stole the show:
In the audience...
Steve and Marjorie Harvey were in attendance to show their daughter Lori support.
Actor/comedian/singer Jamie Foxx was also in the mix for the fashion festivities.
Guess who’s bizzack?! Nicki Minaj is. And she pops up at the most interesting times ever. More on what she’s cooking up inside…
Well, look who finally decided to come out of hiding!
Nicki Minaj seems to ending her extended hiatus that has been going on since December 2017. The Head Barb went radio silent on social media and we haven’t seen her out much outside of a recent spotting in Paris last week.
This week, she started doing a post-and-delete style countdown. Now we know to what exactly.
Chick is now ready to drop some new music.
The Young Money rapper made her musical announcement on her socials, sharing cover art to two new singles titled, “Chun Li” and “Barbie Tingz.”
From what we gather, Chun Li is a character in Capcom's Street Fighter series. On a verse for Willow Smith’s song “Fireball,” Nicki rapped,
Ok I’m the street fighter, call me Chun-Li
a-a-and it’s goin’ down, l-l-like a bum knee
Built a guest house to put the coupe in
’cause I’m a fireball, Hadouken
In the cover art, Nicki rocks a Fendi outfit (if you want to call it that) with her hair swept up in a bun, similar to the Street Fighter character. In the cover for “Barbie Tingz,” Nicki serves up Victorian vibes as she surrounded by masked women in similar outfits.
And there may be another track…

The Standom is reporting she'll be dropping a 3rd track titled "Half Black" as well.
We won't have to wait long. Everything's hitting this Thursday, April 12th at 1pm EST/10am PST.
The timing of Nicki's announcement is interesting for obvious reasons. But, we're here for musical blessings on blessings.
Nicki's stans are now taking over Cardi B.'s IG comments with pink unicorn emojis. Relax guys, they're cool with each other. So they say.

Cardi B. & Jimmy Fallon were like super silly kindred spirits last night as Cardi served as the first co-host ever of "The Tonight Show." She handled ish exactly like we figured she would - savagely and hilariously. Get into how it all went down inside...
The hilarious without even trying Cardi B. pulled off her co-hosting duties last night flawlessly. Chick damn near took over Jimmy's whole show.
The "Be Careful" rapper came out to do the monologue in a satin trench and matching pants by Off White with her baby bump on full display, and slayed.
Gotta love her.
She stayed around to co-host throughout the night and got to the bottom of a few things we've been wondering about: Her ridiculous catchphrases, where's her Bardi Baby going to be while she's touring with Bruno Mars, and what went down on her prom night:
Chick even did the debut tv performance of her new song (and new strip club anthem) "Money Bag" off the Invasion of Privacy album. And chick didn't let a baby bump hold her back.
Dippin' and doin' it with a bump isn't something folks are used to, but they'll deal.
By the way, her look was a custom one from Laurel Dewitt, and was inspired by one of original supermodel Linda Evangelista's iconic photoshoots where she dripped in Chanel. She nailed it, and Linda noticed:
Of course, Cardi had to do the silliest ish Jimmy does on his show - Box of Lies and prank voicemails:
Jimmy thanked her with some super cute baby gifts.
Awwww. Baby Bardi's on the way!
Throw the whole man away! Tristan Thompson was reportedly caught on video kissing a chick in a club before last night's game against the Knicks. Khloe aint gonna like these receipts....
While girlfriend Khloe Kardashian was at his home in Cleveland posting how "bored" she was on Snapchat and how ready she is to give birth, Tristan was hoodie finessing some mystery chick in the club in New York.
Thanks to video footage from Daily Mail, which they grabbed from a partygoers' Snapchat, we see Tristan and a chick talking, then getting thisclose during a day party at PhD Saturday night. Apparently, Tristan thought he could get away with some ish like this in the middle of a packed a** club.
Usually, folks are reaching when they claim two people who are cozied up are f making out in a club. But this time, even without a clear shot, it's pretty obvious it was a kiss, if not a near-kiss. The girl's eyes are closed, her arm is around his neck, and her head is turned like one does when they lean in for a kiss.
And if you think she's just trying to get closer so he can hear her better, her mouth is nowhere near his ear.
At best, even if there was no kiss, Tristan is still all the way wrong for this inappropriate interaction.
We noticed something was up a few months ago when Khloe - who's due to give birth any day now - and Tristan stopped going out together. The only pics that they've taken together since confirming her pregnancy have been the posed-at-home pics from the family's Valentine's Day party, baby shower, his birthday and the couple's maternity pics.
Tristan has been dragged since he and Khloe got together because receipts allege he left his then-pregnant fiance, Jordan, for Khloe. He's also accused of being a deadbeat to their child. Khloe, of course, says we just don't know the real deal.
But what we do know is....what he does with you, he'll do to you.
Richard Lawson says the Beyonce Bitegate story is so not true. Hear what Bey’s stepdad had to say about the scandal, plus get your laugh on at Tiffany Haddish on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” inside…
Two weeks ago, the Internet was in a frenzy trying to crack the “Who Bit Beyonce?!” case. It’s all Tiffany Haddish’s fault. She revealed in an interview with GQ that an actress, allegedly drugged up, bit Beyonce on her face during n afterparty.
We still don’t know who did it. The Beyhive started attacking actress Sanaa Lathan after she was accused, but she said she didn’t do it. And so did actress Sara Foster after the Hive came for her as well. Chrissy Teigen even spoke out about Bitegate and said she knew who did it.
Now, someone close to Beyonce is shutting the rumor mill down. Bey’s stepdad Richard Lawson says the whole Beyonce Bitegate fiasco is simply not true. While promoting BET’s new legal drama In Contempt, Bey’s stepdad spilled the beans to ABC News' Candice Williams.
“Please let it die,” he said. “Please let it die. It’s so stupid.”
"It was something that was blown out of proportion and Tiffany just got a ride from doing it. And so her numbers probably jumped up," he said, referring to her social media following. "Other people jumped on the bandwagon and it's all a bunch of B.S. It's not real... It's not true."
Shoutout to Richard for giving it to us straight talk, no chaser.
Check out what he said at the 25 minute mark below:
Speaking of Tiffany...
The most sought after actress in Hollywood right now made her way to "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon" where she shared a hilarious story about being an elevator at a pre-Oscars party with actor Brad Pitt.
By the end of the elevator ride, the Girls Trip actress was thinking of ways on how she and Brad would make a baby on the elevator. When it was time for him to get off, she said he told her if he's single next year and if she's single next year they should hook up.
However, Tiffany said she did a Google search on Brad and once she realized how many kids he had, she changed her mind.
Peep the clip below:
Can you blame her?
Like we told you before, Tiffany is one hell of a storyteller. And this story about her "deadly ass" killing an old man has us in tears. Check it below:
Catch Tiffany every Tuesday in "The Last O.G.," starring opposite Tracy Morgan, at 10:30/9:30c on TBS.
Drake has no problem sliding in DMs when you showing signs of disrespect. See how he bossed up on a Toronto rapper who called him out, plus the latest with Offset’s alleged baby mama Celina Powell getting cozy with rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine inside…
Don’t you dare come for Drake and expect him not to say anything. Or maybe that was part of this Toronto rapper’s plan. If it was, it worked. Toronto rapper KG released a diss track aimed at Drizzy using the beat for Drake’s “Hype.” Then, he called out the Young Money rapper (@’ing him) in his Instagram Stories.
So why is he mad? Word on the curb is that he got mad at Drake after he sent him some music and never got a response.
It seems like the two go way back to before Drake popped. KG took advantage of his connection with the Grammy-winning artist to send him some music. Things eventually took a turn when there was no word on what he thought about the tracks.
KG, then, took to his IG story to show off a diss song he made using the beat for Drake's "Hype." The fresh-faced musician went off calling the solo artist "gay" and accusing him of being a "d**k rider." Of course, the "Free Smoke" artist stuck to his motto and didn't hesitate to respond to the attack via DMs.
The two rappers went back and forth firing shots at one another. See their exchange below:
KG said he has another diss track on the way and he's titling it "No More Life," a play on Drake's More Life album.
Lordt. If he drops the new diss track, do you think Drizzy will respond? Should he? This guy has already got enough publicity from this situation.
In other social media news...
Celina Powell, the woman who claims to have JUST had Offset’s baby, has seemingly moved on. She claims she’s “dating” rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine.
Content creator Akademiks supposedly made the love connection, but folks aren’t really buying it because word on the curb is that Akademiks and Tekashi have an agreement where they help each other gain publicity. That said, folks think Celina’s “relationship” with Tekashi is a PR stunt. Celina shared a video of herself and Tekashi in the bed together while he’s sleeping. The clip then cuts to Tekashi putting his t-shirt on.
Then, she got into it with Kat Stacks about her budding relationship. Surprisingly, Kat backed down:

Video: Hey @IamAkademiks , Thank you for being respectful in your closing argument on stream. I blacked out drunk tweeting the other day but once I woke up I deleted them. I also informed @xocelina187 I don’t have a problem with her. Won’t happen again pic.twitter.com/5DO0AVPGJr

However, she may not have but so much more time with him as he might be heading to jail soon:

You would think Tristan Thompson is allergic to third trimesters or something. The seemingly habitual cheater has been caught in MORE videos with multiple other women before this weekend's suspect behavior. And he's kissing, groping, and entering his hotel with one of the chicks.
Tristan, bruh, what are you doing?!
While girlfriend Khloe Kardashian - who's due any day now - sits home trying to get the baby to come down her birth canal, Tristan's been out in these streets ho'ing it up. On camera.
Not only was he caught seemingly kissing a mystery chick at PhD lounge Saturday in NYC, he was also out here doing the most in the D.C. area back in October.
Thanks to a certain hookah lounge's surveillance video, Tristan is seen with not one, but 3 women kissing, groping, and tonguing each other down. Dude looks like he may be a little gone off soemthing, but the fatct he's even in this position is an ABSOLUTE mess.
One of the chicks is seen grabbing his package, he motorboats at least one, and plenty more goes down in this booth. Eww.
By the way, these two instances of cheating aren't the only ones. This weekend, the Cavs baller brought what is seemingly a club thot - with a probable fake booty - back to his hotel at the Four Seasons in New York...the day before his big game against the Knicks. Check was even spotted leaving - not even trying to sneak either - with a whole overnight Louis Vuitton bag. The unmitigated GALL, chile. Check the video HERE.
Safe to say the push present/apology gift is going to be LIT. Because you, sir, are trash.
Piping hot tea is being spilled about everything that went down between Tristan Thompson and the women he was caught cheating on Khloe Kardashian with. Plus, a sex tape appears once the women are identified, and Tristan's jilted ex-fiance responds!
This ish can't get much messier.
The woman NBA star Tristan Thompson was caught kissing at PhD lounge Saturday night while his pregnant girlfriend Khloe Kardashian did breathing exercises back in Cleveland, is the same woman he was spotted taking back to his NYC hotel...multiple nights.
The woman has allegedly been identified as Bronx "IG model" Lani Blair, a 28-year-old alleged strip club worker.
This would explain what looked like a fake booty in that video.
According to Page Six, the twosome spent TONS of time together that weekend before his game against the Knicks Monday night. Check it:
Witnesses said Thompson, 27, and the model spent around four hours at the Cavs’ five star hotel before they emerged together with Thompson sporting a different outfit. The pair was then photographed on their way to Meatpacking private members club Soho House.
Then at 5 a.m. on Sunday they returned to his hotel, where witnesses said he was seen “looking around cautiously…and holding the door for her,” before they entered the lobby, heading to the elevator together.
Then at around 8 p.m. the next night, Monday, the model was spotted leaving Thompson’s hotel in the exact same outfit clutching a stuffed Louis Vuitton overnight bag.
Hmph! That LV bag is all up and through the pics and video.
The big reveals don't stop there, though. One woman has been identified from that video that just leaked of Tristan doing the MOST with chicks inside a D.C. area hookah bar.
She's Stephanie Woods, and she seems to be damn proud of everything she did. Chick posted the same pics of Tristan and who appears to be Lani Blair outside of his hotel, almost acting as if it was her in the pics. So it's unclear which of the "models" it actually is in the pics & videos outside of Tristan's hotel, as these chicks all look alike these days.
Stephanie also posted and deleted what appeared to be sex tape footage allegedly with Tristan. She even posted and deleted steamy alleged texts between the two:
Stephanie also included explicit text messages -- allegedly from Tristan -- one read, "If I was there I would grab u while u try to walk away from me than I would pull ya hair and kiss you than rip ya clothes off and lay u down while I suck ya p**** and say sorry. Than I'll stick this long d*** in you slow but deep."
Then, her page was deleted, which she confirmed on her Snapchat page:
What a mess.
Amber Rose, who has had a long time beef with Khloe, interestingly posted a message of support to the reality star:
And Tristan's ex, who he was rumored to cheat on while she was 8 months pregnant as well and with Khloe, sounded off about the drama. She's not relishing in the obvious karma:
So, there you have it.
Good LAWD Michael B. Jordan is FIONE! The YBF actor graces the cover of Men's Health magazine looking like a whole damn meal that we would devour in seconds. Peep his hot as hell spread and find out why he's not ready to meet NBA legend Michael Jordan inside...
It should be a crime being THIS fine. Hell, lock us up and throw away the key.
Michael B. Jordan has our panties doing the most with this new Men’s Health magazine cover for the publication’s May 2018 issue. Nope, the CREED star is not a snack. He’s looking like a whole damn healthy meal and for good reason. He’s currently training hard in the gym to reprise his role as Adonis Creed in the upcoming CREED sequel.
Soon as MBJ made a splash on the Hollywood scene, it was clear why he added the “B” (that means Bae to us) to his stage name being that he shares a name with a person who’s quite famous. However, he has not met his namesake yet. And he’s not ready to. Here’s why:
"I never met Michael Jordan,” MBJ revealed. “I never want to officially meet him until I'm at a point where he knows who I am and I know who he is. And it would be our mutual-respect thing. Until then it would just be a, 'This guy has your name, ha ha.' I don't want that. So that pushes me to keep working too." He laughs and nods. "These things motivate me."
With a name like Michael Jordan, the Black Panther actor got teased a lot. Like, how can you have a name like Michael Jordan and not be great in sports, particularly basketball. However, his name is what gave him the motivation to want to be the best at everything he does.
"I'm competitive," he said. "I want to compete in anything I do. That came from my name. Growing up in sports and having a name like Michael Jordan and being teased, I had to compete. I couldn't be the guy with the name and not be good at it. That carried over to everything. I'm like, 'I've got to be just as great if not greater than he was in his field.'"
MBJ starred in (and executive produced) a new HBO series titled “Fahrenheit 451,” based on the classic 1953 Ray Bradbury novel, where he played a firefighter. But, he was hesitant about taking the role at first.
"I was cautious," he explained. "I wasn't exactly sure if I wanted to play an authority figure due to the relationship between my community and the police. I wasn't sure if I wanted to play that character. But once I got into the book, heard what [director] Ramin [Bahrani] envisioned, and understood what he wanted to say, then it was like, 'I got it. I want to be a part of it.' "
Being an activist for the black community is something MBJ wants to do and he doesn’t shy away from speaking out about political, racial, societal and diversity issues. And we know this to be true as he’s the first actor to adopt inclusion riders. He announced his company Outlier Society Productions would adopt the rider for its projects. An inclusion rider is a contract clause where actors would require filmmakers to reach diversity benchmarks in their cast and crew.
"Technology has a lot to do with it," Jordan says. "Everyone feels connected. Some person somewhere with an opinion can go online, say what they want, and it's in front of everybody. It's easier for people to unite, stand behind one another. I think history repeats itself. There's a constant conversation between the oppressed and the oppressor. No matter what your field is, whether it's gender equality, the Time's Up movement, or diversity casting, it's always going to be a back-and-forth battle. But this time it does feel different. Sometimes you need to have the same conversation over and over until it sticks. Maybe this is the time it starts to stick."
While Michael talked about focusing on his legacy and leaving a blueprint behind for his great-grandkids, he also talked about the career he most wants to emulate. The IG genius that is Will Smith!
"Will Smith just got on Instagram and he's been just dropping jams, freaking killing it," he says. "I watch his stories all the time. That's a career that I want to emulate, and to hear him say things that I think. . .it's almost like, all right, this is his process, this is what he believes, these are the things he practices to achieve his goals. I'm thinking that same way, so I must be on the right track."
Ugh. Loves it!
These arms! Here's how MBJ's trainer plans to get him cut up for CREED following his role as Erik Killmonger (where his bod was A1) below:

Janelle Monae never disappoints when it comes to screaming out to the world about the beauty of all women, both inside and out. Meet you new leader of the "Pynk" p***y power movement.
If you took a guess what Janelle Monae's newest single & video was about based off the name, you would be correct. The electric goddess gave us another melanin filled and magically positive visuals that turned a desert location into a bright, gorgeous retreat of vagina power.
In the newly dropped visuals, the Electric Lady sings about the beauty and power of women's pink parts, whether they're being appreciated by men or other women. The track is also the perfect woke-bop for spring.
Janelle's muse Tessa Thompson stars once again (she's in a previous video too), as well as a ton of other gorgeous ladies who are literally walking vaginas at one point in the video. Get into it below:
Janelle dropped her two other electric singles that caused a stir, “Make Me Feel” and “Django Jane”, last month. Her third solo album project, DIRTY COMPUTER, hits everywhere April 27th.
