Karrueche Tran & Victor Cruz are getting even more lovey dovey on their Miami baecay. Check out the kissy couple living their best lives inside...
Karrueche Tran and her new bae, NFL free agent Victor Cruz, couldn't keep their hands off each other at the pool in Miami this weekend. After flossing at the beach the other day to kick off their vacay, the duo got in some mouth action at The Setai pool. Hot.
Once again, Kae's ex Chris Brown tried to appear not pressed while acting pressed. He commented - while in China - on an Instagram post with the pics with an emoji of a couple, then the emoji of a man walking away. And he followed it up with "GOALS".
Oh Breezy. All we know is, things must b getting serious if Kae used one of her weekends off from filming "Claws" to skip Coachella and spend it with bae.
We're officially here for this relationship.
Secure you wigs & edges. Beychella is here! Watch Beyoncé's Coachella 2018 performance, which is certain to be an epic one, LIVE!
The greatness that just blessed us from that Coachella stage has everybody triggered. Beyoncé Knowles Carter made history as the first black woman to headline the festival, and she brought out the perfect folks - including Destiny's Child - to celebrate the epic moment. Watch it all inside...
In what was arguably the best performance of her career as the best entertainer alive (not up for debate, honestly), Beyoncé took a few minutes out of her wig-snatching 2+ hour set to give us the Destiny's Child reunion we've been wanting for over a decade. Just call them Big Sister Soul Snatcher 1, 2 and 3. Yassssssss!
While this movie - not a performance, that ish was a whole damn movie! - certainly didn't need any supporting acts, the first black woman to ever headline Coachella sprinkled us with more slayage than we could handle.
DC3 rocked a glittery spin on those iconic camo outfits from their "Soldier" days, and served up a medley of hits and harmonies, and most Coachella kids don't even know what hit them.
When that "Hit Me!" came over the speakers, y'all already knew what was about to go down. And it did. Our fave trio performed "Lose My Breath", "Say My Name," "Soldier" and more. And nobody fell. Check it:
the performance of a lifetime. destiny's child did this for the culture pic.twitter.com/MkNvbN4oLF

Bodies, vocals, harmonies stunted on everybody. Nobody fell. Kelly rowland, Michelle Williams and Beyoncé ate this entire performance, which also solidified them as the first girl group to ever perform at Coachella. All other groups attempting to reunite may have just been sent back to the drawing board.
ThenBey returned the favor to both her husband and her sister - both of whom brought her out during their Coachella sets in 2010 & 2014 - to double slay.
— ˗ˏˋ A!K! ˎˊ˗ (@jbjcb143) April 15, 2018
She had her huge HBCU-inspired band (we'll get to that epicness later) intro "Roc Boys," then Hov came out to perform "Deja Vu" with his spouse. If this was any indication of the OTRII tour, Mr. Carter's gonna have to up his game. Your wife is on her MJ, so we need you to be on your Prince, sir. They were still cute, though.
Solange, however, didn't come to play with you h**s. (*Big Freedia voice*) She and Bey brought the New Orleans steez to the stage (which Bey had done all night, and we LIVE) to do a sister dance break to "Get Me Bodied." Blonde Solo got her whole life on that stage, and we appreciate that ish.

Killt it. No typo.
Who else still can't sleep after all of this?
Tamar Braxton's alleged domestic disputes with her WASband fight nights with her husband Vincent Herbert just cost her another job. This time, with her own sister! Deets inside...
This weekend, Vincent Herbert was reportedly removed from his estranged wife Tamar Braxton's apartment in L.A. Sources say they were fighting, again, and once things got far too loud, building security stepped in.
Now, Vince is allegedly BANNED from her building! TMZ reports:
Sources familiar with the matter tell us, Tamar and Vincent Herbert got into a heated argument Tuesday night that got so out of hand, security at her Bev Hills condo escorted him out and told him he's no longer allowed in the building.
Tamar moved into her luxury hi-rise apartment when she filed for divorce from Vince late last year. As for what they were fighting about, it's not clear. But it could be over anything knowing those two.
On this season of "Braxton Family Values," we see Tamar's sisters Trina, Towanda and Traci looking into filing a lawsuit against Vince over the publishing of the show's theme song. The sisters learned he basically cut them out of any ownership (and therefore, money) without them knowing, and the song is only credited to himself and Tamar. He's still managing Tamar, by the way. Hence, the sticky situation.
Once Toni got wind of Traci going the legal route with Vince, she allegedly, according to our sources, dropped Traci from her upcoming tour. Now, we're learning Tamar has been dropped as well. Toni clearly isn't here for the drama. Sources report:
We're now told promoters also don't want to deal with Tamar's divorce drama -- so they dropped her from the tour, too. Important to note, Vince is still Tamar's manager.
As of now, we're told there's no replacement yet to open for Toni. The clock's ticking ... we're told the tour will kick off May 22.
Chile, this is one big family mess. We knew things would get sticky with Tamar and Vince still spending time together and him still managing her. Something tells us things may get even uglier before they get better.
Honestly, we're speechless. But in the spirit of Beyoncé, we'll put our magical black girl wizard-ry in motion and talk about all this unapologetic feminist blackness that just went down. Sis was all the way in her bag y'all, doing the Lord’s work of informing the white masses of black greatness.
Drum major Beyoncé revealed she dreamed up this epic Coachella performance while pregnant with the twins. If there's a pill instead that'll make us this much of a creative genius, we'll take it!
THIS is how you top yourself when it seems you, yourself, can't be topped. Before you try to shade Mrs. Knowles Carter, yes, she had almost an entirely fresh new set. With flawless vocals, we might add. Chick even found a fresh way to slay the decade old "Crazy In Love." Because, genius.
Beychella was filled with never ending surprises, body snatchery on 1000 (thanks to Balmain's custom looks) and the blackest HBCU inspired theme complete with a co-ed marching 100 band, Les Twins and her female dancers who've been with her over the last decade. Basically, Bey & her squad slayed a 2 hour bleacher & halftime routine for the Gawds.
Miss Third Ward debuted her own fictitious greek lettered fraternity, complete with letters that look like they'd get snatched if you don't know Beyonce AND Destiny's Child history. Her father, Mathew Knowles, is a member of Omega Psi Phi, and she's seemingly a black movie buff, so she knew how to nail the School Daze inspired theme.
We know folks have think pieces in the works about that “Suck on my balls” break down and calling her new "line Bugaboos" (also the name of D-Child's earlier classics). The way it was done, actual BGLOs (Black Greek Letter Organizations) could never. Like, EVER. And certainly not without getting fined into submission and possibly suspended.
The level of twerkin’, finessin’ and I’m That B*tch’ steez…somebody would have tried to call Nationals on Bey. But that fine would have been well worth it.
Chick reclaimed what is traditionally the whitest of white spaces, showing them where our culture that they love - and love to vulture - stems from. She showed how it’s supposed to be done, when it has roots and is not watered down or objectified. Chick reverse gentrified that mug. Queen behavior. This performance was hot sauce in the form of New Orleans, Caribbean & African dance music for them to take home and sprinkle on their unseasoned greens. Thank her later.
She flawlessly took us from the great Fela Kuti to ratchet poet OT Genesis' new strip club anthem. *cries, because greatness*
She also served up some shade to Coachella for just now having a black woman headline their almost 20-year festival. "Aint that bout a b*tch," she said after pointing out she's making history as the first. She's also only the second woman to headline there ever. Destiny's Child also officially became the first girl group to ever play Coachella.
Bey gave us epic dance breaks from Texas-fied choreo to “Everybody Mad” to the reggae anthem No No No to Juve’s "Back That Azz Up" to her own Get Me Bodied. She served up unapologetic feminism with Malcolm X's excerpt stating the black woman is the most disrespected woman in America to "Blood on the Leaves."
And it all made perfect sense. *We're not worthy.*
It's no surprise her jaw dropping performance seemed to be over the packed crowd's heads. Good. They'll google it all later - from her infusing the black National Anthem into a her own remixed-with-New Orleans-beats songs to the fictional probate she put on.
So New Orleans with it (her mama is Louisiana, afterall). So HBCU with it. So black pride with it. Beyoncé don’t owe us a damn thing after that performance. Not.A.Thing.
Check out her full Coachella performance & more pics below:
Kim Zolciak Biermann quit one of her side hustles, "RHOA", and NeNe Leakes is super triggered and going off. And it's far from pretty. See Kim's reaction and Andy's inside...
Right after news hit Kim confirmed on a paparazzo's video that she was done with the show after being on it the first 5 seasons (and then the last two), NeNe wasted no time responded. This time, Nene let her "privileged ass" have it:
I really wanna keep it 100 but sometimes you have to just keep it bout 75! So many things happen behind the scenes that you guys just never get to know or see. I knew working with her would be a mess and I’ve said it over & over & over again to ALL of my higher ups but what happens, i get reprimanded! I’m the bad guy! I wish i could speak so much more freely but it’s best not too. Sometimes you just have to let people see things for themselves which is what happened here! I’ve been called everything in the book and painted so many different colors i have to wonder if I’m still black. Kim loves to push buttons, lie, talk shit, insult, then become a victim when she’s called out on her shit! Most people would love for me to be the bully but the only bully here is Kim & her plastic surgeon! Bye wax figure i saw who you was a longggg time ago! Thankful for YOU, they have editing #priviledgedpeaceofshit TUNE INTO #RHOA 8pm TONIGHT
Not "Bye wax figure!" Kim responded almost immediately saying she wants to call a truce. Sounds like she's trying to not look crazy.
I am so sorry for what has happened @neneleakes We both know the truth, we both know that if I wanted to, I could have a law suit for the lies you have spewed, tweeting out fake texts, implying I am racist, attacking me physically, claiming my daughter tweeted negative about you and your home, we both know these are lies. I have reacted to it publicly and for that I am sorry. I should have risen above it I personally will no longer engage with you on social media and perpetuate the hate. I am asking you to do the same. We are grown women with families. Enough is enough. I want us to move on If you continue this, it will be because you are attempting to stay on the show and stay relevant and that’s on you.
Always a victim.
But Kim's still going to be on her own show "Tardy For The Party." We wonder if her husband Kroy found another j-o-b, one that pays, not being Kim's wig-brusher, since the NFL cut him a few years ago.
"WWHL" host and "Housewives" creator Andy Cohen responded about the whole situation, and he gave that low key shade we would all expect.
Andy told People.com about Kim's exit, basically saying, "Bye Wig!"
“I think she’s done, yeah,” he explained, recounting the tension in filming the RHOA season 10 reunion with Zolciak-Biermann and longtime rival NeNe Leakes. “[Kim] walked out of that reunion and I said, ‘Yeah, I’ve seen the last of that wig at these reunions.’ ”
By the way, this is what Andy originally thought of Kim's return to "Housewives" (without a peach):
Weekend 1 of Coachella 2018 just wrapped up and we’ve got deets on why folks are mad over Eminem’s non-streamed performance, plus how Migos addressed that Nicki Minaj drama...with Nicki Minaj there. Get it all inside…
As we all attempted to nurse our #BeychellaHangover, Coachella 2018 brought its last performers to wrap up the first three days of the festival.
Apparently, Coachella producers had to decide whether to stream the Migos or Eminem’s performance via their live stream on YouTube. Well, they ended up choosing to stream the Migos’ performance and folks were NOT happy about it. The festival has 3 channels and they don't stream everything live, so this could have been planned better. Unless, of course, it was Em and his label who didn't grant Coachella the rights to stream it.
Peep some of the tweets below:
Can someone at Coachella please go and record Eminem cause this live stream of Migos is garbage
— Tommy Manning (@Tommymanning91) April 16, 2018
Migos offer nothing on stage. No energy, no alternative versions of their songs, no new verses, no props, no dancers, NOTHING. But somehow they're being streaming instead of Eminem.
— the "drumz" is silent (@JoeyDrumzSA) April 16, 2018
Coachella putting migos on the livestream instead of Eminem has really ruined my Sunday
— Danny Murphy (@DannyMurphy55) April 16, 2018
So if you weren’t there, you didn’t get a chance to see Em’s set. But, it's all gravy. We got you.
During his time on stage, The 8 Mile rapper created a few moments, bringing out Dr. Dre and 50 Cent.
The legendary producer/rapper hit the stage to perform “Still D.R.E.” He then stuck around to drop bars on his son with Snoop Dogg “Nothin’ but a G Thang” and “Forgot About Dre.” Em even did a mini tribute to 2 Pac performing his classic hit, “California Love.”
He brought out 50 to perform “In Da Club” and “My Life.” Singer Sklar Gray filled in for Beyonce on Em’s song “Walk On Water” and Rihanna on “Love The Way You Lie.” Bey was likely busy feeding the twins and Rih was busy making her Coachella rounds.
Bebe Rexha also took the stage with Em to perform "Monster."
Peep clips from Em's set below:
As for Migos performance...
— (@SeanEyezayuh) April 16, 2018
After hitting the stage with Future last year, Migos returns to the LIT festival for a performance. As expected, the Atlanta rappers performed their hit single "Motorsport," which features Cardi B and Nicki Minaj. However, they skipped over Nicki's verse during the performance. Peep the clip above.
They also performed their radio hit "Stirfy":
Offset's fiancé and baby's-mother-to-be Cardi B. was in the crowd reppin' for her man after performing her own Coachella set:
Some might think recently surfaced Nicki Minaj and Migos' rapper Quavo aren't on good terms after she revealed her feelings were hurt since Quavo basically started all of the "Motorsport" drama.
Oh, but you're wrong. They're very much still "friends" and were spotted kicking it during Coachella:
There are rumors that these two could possibly be dating and they're only adding fuel to the fire. We highly doubt the rumors are real. Nicki said herself she's a marketing genius. Mmhmm...

R&B singer The Weeknd hit the stage at Coachella and had everybody in their feelings. Including himself. Watch him breakdown seemingly over his ex Selena Gomez, then pick up the pieces hours later with his other ex and Chantel Jeffries....
Emo Canadian crooner served up an emotional set, breaking down in tears while performing “Call Out My Name” and “Privilege” while headlining Coachella night one. the tracks are from his new six-song EP My Dear Melancholy. And he may have just proved what everybody was thinking: Certain songs are def about his ex Selena Gomez.
The R&B crooner couldn’t hold back his emotions and left it all out on the stage.
Since The Weeknd’s new EP is all about heartache and relationships, its no wonder fans speculated he got all emotional over his failed relationship with Selena Gomez. It was the first musical offering since they split. The couple dated for 10 months after calling it quits in October 2017.
On "Call Out My Name," he says a line about almost cutting a piece of himself for a lover, and she was simply using him as a placeholder. Folkls swear this is about him giving a kidney or something esle to Selena (she got one from a friend instead) and the she quickly moved on back her ex, Justin Bieber.
See his emotional performance below:
However, The Weeknd isn't THAT heartbroken. He was all up on Justin's other ex Chantel Jeffries, who now says she's a DJ. Chile...

— Hype And Power (@hypeandpower) April 15, 2018
They were seen hugging each other and she "put her head on his shoulder" and that may even be a kiss in one of the pics.
Everybod'ys got to have a hustle these days, we guess.
Not only that, The Weeknd ran into his ex-Bella Hadid and was reportedly real touchy, feely with her. Sources say they were spotted kissing all night at the festival one night. We wonder if they mistook Chantel - who has changed her appearance once again - for Bella. Hmph.
There's good news and bad news for Meek Mill involving his jail sentence. Get the latest inside...
Meek Mill was one step closer to getting out of jail thanks to the Philadelphia’s District Attorney office, but controversial Judge Genece Brinkley shut that ish down with the quickness. While many are mad, she very likely has her own reasons in doing so.
The MMG rapper was due in court today where prosecutors in the Meek Mill case said the rapper’s conviction should be overturned. Why? Well, his arresting officer, Reginald Graham, was exposed as being corrupt. His name turned up on the Philadelphia District Attorney Office's “Do Not Call” list, which is a document warning prosecutors of several officers suspected of corruption.
If the conviction was thrown out, Meek’s probation violation would be tossed, which means, he would get out of jail. He’s currently behind bars serving 2-4 yearsafter violating his probation. Earlier this month, Meek's bail was denied.
Good news that the D.A. advocated for his release, right? Well, Judge Genece Brinkley has the final say, and she’s not with it.
According to reports, she didn’t sign off on the DA’s request this morning, and instead scheduled a hearing on the matter. And that hearing isn't happening until June. So, Meek will be sitting in jail all spring.
“This is outrageous, the conviction should have never happened in the first place — the conviction was filled with constitutional violations,” Mill’s lawyer Joe Tacopina told Page Six of the ruling on Monday. He said of the hearing in June, “A hearing over what? In this case, both parties agree that the conviction needs to be overturned.”
Mill’s team says they’ll apply for emergency relief as soon as Monday. “Any hope that [Judge Brinkley] would do the right thing was eviscerated today,” Tacopina said.
Before Judge Brinkley set the new hearing, crowds of people lined up outside of the courthouse for a #FreeMeekMill rally started celebrating when they got the news about the DA, thinking he would be released.

A few days ago, the Philly rapper conducted an interview over the phone with "NBC Nightly News" where he talked about being a "political prisoner" and how screwed up the justice system is. Check it:
Meek's next hearing is scheduled for June 18th.
Beyoncé always walks it like she talks it, so 4 HBCUs are the new recipients of her Formation Scholarships! We've got all the deets inside, plus her explanation about why she decided to shine the spotlight on black culture and black excellence at Coachella.
Beyoncé kicked off The Formation Scholars Awards Program last year to celebrate her 1 year anniversary of the LEMONADE visual album. The awards encouraged and supported young women who are bold, creative, conscious, confident and unafraid to think outside of the box.
Now, she's dipping into her bag to give back even more.
Beychella paid homage to excellence in education by incorporating the theme of the homecoming weekend experience, the highest display of college pride. As stated in her press release,"she put the spotlight on art and culture, mixing the ancient and the modern, which resonated masterfully through the marching band, performance art, choir and dance."
While her Coachella show was arguably the biggest show of black excellence and HBCU culture on a majority white platform, she's not stopping there. She's shining even more light on HBCUs by establishing $25,000 scholarships through her program at four of them.
One winner from each school will receive $25K for the 2018-2019 academic year for study in various fields.
The institutions receiving Bey's scholarly bag are: Xavier University, Wilberforce, Tuskegee and Bethune-Cookman, all Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) established after 1964 with intentions to serve the African-American community who was marginalized or completely shut out of higher education.
"We salute the rich legacy of Historically Black Colleges and Universities," states Ivy McGregor, Director of Philanthropy and Corporate Relations at Parkwood Entertainment which houses BeyGOOD. "We honor all institutions of higher learning for maintaining culture and creating environments for optimal learning which expands dreams and the seas of possibilities for students."
Last year, the extra woke current queen of music also handed out four Formation scholarships, spread across four different schools. Two of the schools were HBCUs (Spelman and Howard), and the other two were for artistic schools Parsons School of Design and Berkee School of Music.
Saw this written above photo and commentary by: Alisa Adamson Profit and thought i would share it with you https://apple.news/AmQP7CFzMQOS7gDDGvfigMw I told Beyonce that i was afraid that the predominately white audience at Coachella would be confused by all of the black culture and Black college culture because it was something that they might not get. Her brave response to me made me feel a-bit selfish and ashamed. She said i have worked very hard to get to the point where i have a true voice and At this point in my life and my career i have a responsibility to do whats best for the world and not what is most popular “ She said that her hope is that after the show young people would research this culture and see how cool it is, and young people black and white would listen to “ LIFT EVERY VOICE AND SING and see how amazing the words are for us all and bridge the gap. She also hopes that it will encourage young kids to enroll in our amazing HIstorically Black Colleges and Universities . I stand corrected
Beyoncé's mom, Tina Lawson, revealed what her daughter told her about putting on such a culturally rich show for a mostly white audience who likely wouldn't get it. It proves that even your family sometimes won't see your vision. And you must press on.
If you needed any more proof that Beyoncé is officially the undisputed #GOAT, here it is. Where much is given, much is required. She recognizes and acknowledges her responsibility, and obliterates the game while living up to it. When THEY don’t understand, THEY shall google and put in effort to learn, understand, acknowledge and respect. Just as blacks have done about everyone else’s history and cultures.
Our culture isn’t up for sale, despite the masses often loving everything black except for black people. Blacks people will continue showing the world and ourselves the non co-opted realness of our culture. Not a watered down, culture vulture version that never acknowledges the root of the inspiration. We will do it straight from the source - which is ourselves - and on the largest platforms. Unapologetically.
Tristan Thompson and Khloe Kardashian have revealed their daughter’s name and the Internet is having a field day with it. Find out what it is, plus why Kanye West is tweeting about Khloe’s ex-husband Lamar Odom…
Four days afterwelcoming their new bundle of joy into the world, Tristan Thompson and Khloe Kardashian are revealing the baby’s name. As expected, it’s slightly unique and not your typical baby name. However, considering thecheating circumstances and him allegedly convincing Khloe he was "set up," folks are having a field day cracking all the jokes.
Tristan and Khloe named their baby girl True Thompson.
Oh, the irony.
The first-time mom made the announcement on her Instagram page today posting:
Even though Tristan was exposed for cheating with multiple women days before she gave birth, Khloe still let him in the delivery room for the birth. This is the NBA baller's 2nd time becoming a dad after welcoming a son, Prince, with his ex-Jordan Craig in December 2016. He left Jordan while she was pregnant with their son to be with Khloe.
Y’all already KNOW the Internet has ZERO chill and didn’t waste any time to add their colorful commentary about the newest Kardashian baby:

Zero chill. And these are just a FEW of the tweets.
While Twitter is having fun clowning Tristan and his baby "True," Khloe's momager Kris Jenner sheds light on where the name True came from. Apparently, it runs in the family...so Kris says:
Mmhmm...looks like mom is on PR duty to us.
my favorite moment of walking into MSG to play Saint Pablo, I used to go to the hospital and play Lamar the album when he was learning to walk and talk again Then we walked into the arena together pic.twitter.com/ysC5z5wDUA
— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 15, 2018
Khloe's brother-in-law Kanye West is tweeting about her ex-husband Lamar Odom. Ye must was in his feelings and decided to reflect on friendship with the former Lakers baller.
Yeezy tweeted about how he played his album, The Life of Pablo, for Lamar when he was learning to walk and talk again following his neardeath drug overdose. Yeezy, who's currently working on a new album in Wyoming, shared a picture of himself walking Lamar inside Madison Square Garden during the Yeezy Season 3 launch in February 2016.
Lamar caught wind of the tweet and responded:

Aww. At least a bromance came from their Kardashian Konnection.
Kendrick Lamar and Jay Z are sweeping up awards most rappers aren’t adding to their trophy cases. More inside…
Kendrick Lamar has a new trophy to add to his arrangement of awards. And it will go down in the history books. Not only did the Compton rapper cop four Grammy Awards this year, he’s also taking home a Pulitzer Prize in Music. Yep, you read it right.
The Pulitzer Prize is an award for achievements in newspaper, magazine and online journalism, literature, and musical composition in the United States. And only the cream of the crop receive them. There are only 13 made each year.
K-Dot’s 2017 album DAMN earned him the honor of becoming the first rap artists to be the recipient of the prestigious award.
— The Pulitzer Prizes (@PulitzerPrizes) April 16, 2018
Typically, the award is given to a classical or jazz artist—something of that nature. But how can you deny good storytelling no matter the form? Clearly, someone on the Pulitzer Prize board is fan. Game changer.
"A virtuosic song collection, unified by its vernacular authenticity and rhythmic dynamism that offers affecting vignettes capturing the complexity of modern African-American life," the Pulitzer board writes about DAMN.
Other Pulitzer winners this year included The New York Times and The New Yorker for their journalism – breaking the Harvey Weinstein scandal and kicking off the #MeToo movement. Also, Locking Up Our Own: Crime and Punishment in Black America, by James Forman Jr., in general non-fiction writing and Rachel Kaadzi Ghansah of GQ in feature writing.

Another rapper nabbing awards...
He’s no stranger to winning.
Jay Z’s powerful “TIME” series about the life of Kalief Browder just copped a Peabody Award. Nice! "TIME: The Kalief Browder Stoey" was one of 9 winners in this year's Documentary category for programs released in 2017.
As described by the jurors, TIME: The Kalief Browder Story is a "powerful miniseries illuminating the greatest flaws of our criminal justice system through the tragic events and death of a young African-American who spent three years on Rikers Island without being convicted of a crime."
We know Hov and his Roc Nation team are celebrating this big feat! Mr. Carter and his team will accept the award during annual gala set to go down at Cipriani Wall Street in NYC on May 19th.

Blessings on blessings on blessings! He’s here!
Luckily, “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Eva Marcille didn’t go into labor during the taping of the reunion. That would have been something.
On Friday, the “Top Model” alum and her fiancé/politician welcomed a healthy baby boy into their family fold. Baby Michael Sterling Jr., made his arrival at 5:59pm EST, weighing in at 7 pounds 3 ounces.
It’s their first child together and Eva’s 2nd. The YBF model has four-year daughter Marley Rae (whom she kinda shares with singer Kevin McCall).
“All praises be to God!,” Eva captioned on Instagram.
After welcoming Baby Michael Sterling Jr., the new parents --who got engaged in November-- sat in the hospital room watching television. Eva’s beau was glued to screen while watching the NBA playoffs.
“New parents, old habits watching the NBA playoffs while the Young Prince sleeps,” Eva shared.
Y'all know how new (and seasoned) dads be...
Meanwhile, daddy Michael Sr. shared his emotions on social media while waiting for his Prince to arrive:
Congrats to the couple!
In other baby news...
It’s Luna Stephens' last birthday as an only child!
John Legend and Chrissy Teigen pulled out all the Sesame Street stops to celebrate their baby girl’s 2nd birthday.
The pregnant “Lip Sync Battle” commentator and R&B singer, who will welcome their 2nd child together in June, shared a few shots from Luna’s birthday bash that went down on Saturday.
She so cute it hurts.
On Instagram, Chrissy noted Pampers, who sponsored the party, made a special donation in honor of Luna’s birthday to the Southeast Llama Rescue. “Thank you @pamperspure for helping celebrate our big girl’s 2nd birthday! Luna’s rocking her llama diaper under this birthday suit! Aaaaaannnnd Pampers made a donation to the Southeast Llama Rescue in honor of this day. Thanks for making her day so special! #llamabutt forever!,” Chrissy captioned.
Even after the birthday festivities, Luna is still "cheesing":

This white woman thought she was going to get away with putting her hands on a black woman, but surprisingly, she was sadly mistaken. Deets inside…
Thank God for cameras on cellphones!
A 71-year-old white woman in Macon, GA was arrested after she assaulted two black female military service members, one of them pregnant, in a restaurant. And it was all caught on camera. Thankfully. Especially since the white woman tried to lie about what really happened when police arrived.
In the video, you see Judy Tucker– who was there with her husband, daughter and son – lunge at 34-year-old Stephanie Mitchell and 27-year-old Treasure Sharpe at Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen in Macon on Saturday. She got upset that one of the women started recording her during their verbal altercation and ended up hitting Treasure in the face!
According to reports, Stephanie told police it ll started over insults being hurled their way. The ladies were backing into a parking space when Judy’s son, Robbie Tucker, walked up to them and told them they should learn how to park. Then, he proceeded to call them “dum b*tches.”
After the military women, in full uniform, went inside the restaurant, Robbie approached them again hurling homophobic insults, calling them “black lesbian b*tches,” according to the police report. It was also remarked that Judy and her husband said things, overheard while they walked into the restaurant, like "I didn't know they allowed lesbians in the military."
However, Judy told police the argument started over a parking space and because she’s white. Of course she said that.
"With all the lunging and slapping happening, it was never shown through cell phone video that Mrs. Mitchell or Mrs. Sharpe did anything wrong,” the report said.
Judy was labeled as “the primary aggressor” so they locked her (seemingly ignorant) self up! She was taken down to the Bibb County Jail where she was charged with battery. She was later released on a $650 bond.
Her arrest was also caught on video. And we find it interesting her husband, who seemed equally mad he was being tape recorded during the altercation, quickly whipped out his phone to record the arresting black police officer.
Darden Restaurants — which owns Cheddar’s — released a statement addressing the altercation saying they are“appalled by the behavior of the individuals who confronted the two female service members. Such behavior flies in the face of our values and those individuals are no longer welcome in our restaurant.”
Not too long after Judy’s arrest, Mercer University issued a statement regarding her previous employment. The statement reads:
"Judy Tucker is not currently employed at Mercer University. She has occasionally taught an art class in the past, but will not be teaching at Mercer in the future."
Bloop. Serves her right! Next time, maybe she'll think twice before turning up (on black women) and acting a fool.
We saw this coming! Mariah Carey’s former manager Stella Bulochnikov (Stopler) is now suing her for several reasons. One of them being sexual assault. She also bashed MiMi, calling her a drug user and more. She even gives details about one alleged mental breakdown in particular. Get it all inside…
We knew Mariah Carey’s manager Stella Bulochnikov (Stopler) was bad news!
Now, MiMi is likely wishing she never met the woman. Why? Well, Stella seems to be gearing up to wage a legal war against the Grammy Award winner. According to reports, Stella is threatening to SUE Mariah for several reasons, including sexual harassment.
Stella has filed paperwork to pull the trigger on a lawsuit against the 48-year-old singer for breach of contract, violating the U.S. Civil Rights Act, as well as the Fair Employment and Housing Act. She’s also accusing Mariah of sexual harassment because MiMi was “constantly naked in front of her.”
Really, girl? What entertainer isn’t getting naked in front of their team as they make quick wardrobe changes for events?
She also claims when Mariah was naked around her that she would do “sexual things” in her presence. Hmm...
MiMi’s former manager, who fornted Mariah'sfailed reality show "Mariah's World,"is seeking damages (plus interest) since she claims she’s owed money due to being fired in the middle of her 3-year contract. However, a rep for Mariah tells Page Six Stella was never under a contract. In fact, the rep claims Stella’s accusations Stella’s claims is “frivolous and baseless.” You’ll recall, Mariah and Stella parted waysin November 2017.
“Stella Bulochnikov was terminated from employment as Mariah’s manager due to failure to perform her job effectively and ill-serving her client,” the rep said. “Stella was not under contract for employment. She has been spreading false rumors to any media outlet that will publish them. We won’t respond to lies and threats. Again, if this frivolous and baseless claim is filed, we will defend against it vigorously and successfully. It is also interesting to note that this is the first lawyer who will move forward on Stella’s behalf, having previously gone through three others who wouldn’t.”
Oh, and there’s more. Stella is also bashing MiMi for allegedly being a drug user. She alleges Mariah has a substance abuse problem and failed to take her medication for bipolar disorder. Just last week, the “Honey” singer revealed she had been secretly battling with bipolar disorder for the last 17 years.
Remember that catastrophic NYE performance? Well, Stella claims it was such a catastrophe because Mariah was high on drugs. Oh?
Sounds like Mariah“bravely” shared her bipolar disorder diagnosis because she knew Stella was going to start talking. Why you mad, Stella?!
Speaking of that bipolar diagnosis, sources reportedly tell The Blast that Stella had her admitted after a 2016 incident where Mariah tried to have a dinner party with three dead pop icons. She was dressed in formal gown, wearing a ring pop she says was gifted to her by the Royal Family.
We’re told that one evening in 2016, Nick Cannon called Bulochnikov in a panic after he was called by the star’s nanny, who found Mariah “wearing a ball gown and a tiara” and sporting a Ring-Pop she claimed was given to her “from the royal family.”
Carey was allegedly asking the nanny to prep her two young children for a dinner meeting with Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston and Prince. All three were dead at the time.
The incident made Stella "worried" so doctors were called to the home before Mariah was whisked away to the hospital. She was put on an involuntary 5150 hold:
Sources close to the alleged incident tell us that the nanny panicked and alerted Mariah’s inner circle because she feared her employer was a danger to herself and others.
Mariah Carey’s team arrived at the singer’s house with a psychiatrist and we’re told that the doctor felt the singer needed to be immediately hospitalized. Our sources involved with the situation claim that Mariah actually attempted to jump out of a moving vehicle on their way to the hospital.
We’re told that doctors at The Ronald Regan UCLA Medical Center suggested Carey be placed on an involuntary 5150 hold but ultimately released her to the care of her team and referred her to some private physicians.
What a time to be alive! J. Cole and Drake are gearing up to bring us some heat for the summer. Also, Hip Hop will be taking over the Billboard Awards. Everything inside...
It’s an exciting moment in Hip Hop!
J. Cole AND Drake announced they’re releasing new musical offerings just in time for Summer 2018. You know what that means. It's about to be littu all Summer '18.
When it comes to releasing music, J. Cole likely takes the crown for “pop up” music. Meaning, he skips out on all the marketing hype before he releases new music. The conscious rapper took to Twitter to announce he has a new album set to drop THIS Friday, April 20th titled, KOD. It will be his fifth studio album to feed the masses.
New album. KOD 4/20
— J. Cole (@JColeNC) April 17, 2018
The Dreamville rapper also announced he was hosting a “first come first serve” event at the Gramercy Theatre in NYC to preview his new music. Tons of fans showed up. But don't expect to hear any leaked music. There strict rules in place. No phones. No cameras. No bags. No press list. No guest list.
NYC. Come through. Couple hours from now. First come first serve. pic.twitter.com/Z71I9iRnnu
— J. Cole (@JColeNC) April 16, 2018
@OnlyHipHopFacts was in the building and they reported J. Cole’s KOD title have several meanings, including “Kids on Drugs,” “King Overdosed,” and “Killing Our Demons.” Interesting.
KOD is the follow up to the rapper’s 2016’s 4 Your Eyez Only album, which debuted at No. 1. By the way, he didn’t have any features and went platinum. Matter of fact, the same thing happened with his 2014 album, 2014 Forest Hills Drive, which went platinum TWICE.
Will J. "No Features" Cole go diamond this go 'round?
Another album coming down the pipeline...
Drake had us rocking out to his hot track "Summer Sixteen" a few summers ago. And now he’s coming back with more heat for us to get our lives to this summer.
Following J. Cole’s announcement about a new album, Drizzy came through with his own album announcement. We knew it was coming since he previously said he was working on a new album in his hometown of Toronto and that he would be dedicating it to his people.
The Young Money rapper is gearing up to release his newest LP titled, Scorpion, in June. He let everyone in on the music news in two posts he put up on his Instagram account. One shot features Drake wearing a black bomber jacket that reads, “Scorpion by Drake: June Twenty Eighteen.” He also shared a shot of producer Noah “40” Shebib wearing the same jacket that showed off the album’s producer credits.
Scorpion will be the follow-up to Drizzy’s full-length album, VIEWS. Fans haven’t been thirsting for new Drake music either since he dropped More Life, which he dubbed a playlist, last year.
By the way, the Scorpion title seems fitting since the Toronto rapper is a Scorpio. God’s Plan.
Speaking of music...
So yes, award shows are totally boring unless they have a hot performance or two to keep the audience engaged. Ad even then...
But, we’d have to say this year’s awards season was quite eventful with YBF folks doing it big in every category in entertainment.
When it comes to music, it’s mostly about numbers if you’re trying to argue who’s the “greatest.” Of course, some will say number don’t matter. But trust, when you’re signed to a big label, numbers are EVERYTHING. And since the Billboard Charts are considered to be the ultimate authority in the music industry, their awards show is a big deal. The announcements were just made today.
No genre is out here killing the music game like this. Kendrick Lamar is still making a huge splash on the music scene as he gathers up awards for his album DAMN. He’s in the lead for nominations this year, however he’s tied with pop singer Bruno Mars (and singer Ed Sheeran) with 15 BBMA nominations!
The Cardi B takeover hasn't slowed down any. She's up for 8 nominations this year, including Top New Artist, where she will be going up against 21 Savage, Camila Cabello, Khalid and Kodak Black. That's certainly an interesting mix of artists there.

Starbucks is trying to make everything right after two black men were arrested for, well, simply being black. Get the deets on how the coffee company is addressing the issue, plus see how Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. is rallying around one of the arrested men inside…
Apparently, black people can’t even sit in Starbucks without getting arrested these days.
Two black Philadelphia men were hauled off in handcuffs after a Starbucks store manager called the police on them for “trespassing.” According to reports, the two men were sitting inside the Philadelphia Starbucks while waiting to meet up with a colleague. They asked to use the restroom and since they hadn’t purchased anything, their request was denied by employees. Then, they were asked to leave and that’s when the store manager called the cops to have them removed.
We wonder if this same policy exists at the Starbucks locations in places like Beverly Hills or any other high income area.
Local Jewish businessman Andrew Yaffe– the white man they were waiting on – tried to intervene, asking the officers why they were being arrested. Of course they didn’t answer.
Here's how it all went down:
Yep, the two black men not doing anything illegal were ARRESTED. For what exactly? Being black! We'd like to applaud these young men for keeping their cool and not giving these cops a real reason to arrest them. Not that they had one in the first place.
The guys were held in police custody for nearly nine hours before they were released. No charges were filed. Of course they weren't. They literally weren't doing anything wrong.
Once the clip of the men being arrested started going viral, folks started calling out Starbucks on social media to respond. The arrests prompted the #BoycottStarbucks hashstag and also protests at the Philly store.
Now, Starbucks is taking action.
On 5/29, we'll close US company-owned stores to conduct racial-bias training to address implicit bias & prevent discrimination. We're taking a hard look at who we are as a company. We’re ashamed & recognize that racial bias is a problem we must address. https://t.co/xIYc75BJPj
— Starbucks Coffee (@Starbucks) April 17, 2018
The company is planning to close more than 8,000 U.S. stores one afternoon next month for “racial-bias education” training. The training session will be presented before 175,000 employees on May 29th. Hmm…we can’t help but wonder if they’ll hire black people or white people to lead these trainings.
Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson went on "Good Morning America" to apologize to the men personally:
FULL INTERVIEW: "I personally apologize..." Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson one-on-one with @RobinRoberts in his first interview after two black men were handcuffed at a Philadelphia store.
— Good Morning America (@GMA) April 16, 2018
Starbucks also released an official statement regarding the arrests:
We regret that our practices and training led to the reprehensible outcome at our Philadelphia store. We’re taking immediate action to learn from this and be better. A statement from ceo Kevin Johnson: https://t.co/kPav8bEeOX
— Starbucks Coffee (@Starbucks) April 15, 2018
According to Philly.com, the manager in question has left the company in what a company spokeswoman called a “mutual” decision. However, there are conflicting reports on whether she was actually fired or if she left the company.
Actor/Philly native Kevin Hart took to Twitter to plead with Starbucks to make this ish right.
This really makes me sad... @Starbucks had a platform and a real opportunity @GMA to fix that situation correctly by calling it exactly what it was which was racial profiling/discrimination by the on duty manager. YOU FAILED ...That person should have been FIRED. https://t.co/inweLlGu4q
— Kevin Hart (@KevinHart4real) April 16, 2018
Then, he engaged in conversation with a fan who popped off on him for telling people not to boycott Starbucks:
— Kevin Hart (@KevinHart4real) April 16, 2018
I also felt that the company should of stood up and addressed the matter and made us feel comfortable in understanding that this wrong doing would never happen again...and that they should of addressed the victims with a apology etc
— Kevin Hart (@KevinHart4real) April 16, 2018
I was simply saying not to boycott before seeing what the company was going to do....after watching the interview that the CEO of @Starbucks did on @GMA I feel that they failed in doing what they should have done. Now actions can be taken...
— Kevin Hart (@KevinHart4real) April 16, 2018
The last thing that I will say on this matter is..before we jump out the gate with anger sometimes it’s ok to think first...how many people of color are employed by that company? How many families are being taken care of because of the income that’s being provided by said company
— Kevin Hart (@KevinHart4real) April 16, 2018
I believe in equality and I want it for people of color more than anything. Right is right and wrong is wrong. This matter hit home because it’s where I’m from. My heart goes out to those men that were treated horribly. Shit is truly sad that we are still going backwards
— Kevin Hart (@KevinHart4real) April 16, 2018
As for one of the men...
According to reports, the men wanted to remain anonymous, one of them has been identified.
According to The Grio, one of the men who were arrested is Rashon Nelson. He is a member of the Alpha Eta chapter of Omega Psi Phi fraternity and attended Bloomsburg University in Pennsylvania as a finance major from 2013-2017. Did we mention he was fine too? We couldn’t help ourselves.
As protests to boycott Starbucks pop up, his fraternity brothers across the nation are rallying behind him in support after the arrest. The Grand Basileus of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Antonio F. Knox, Sr. released a statement addressing the Starbucks arrests.
Check it below:
— Omega Psi Phi (@OfficialOPPF) April 16, 2018
The same thing happened to a man in a Los Angeles Starbucks as well:
Here we go again.
Meet Brandon Ward. He was @Starbucks - about to make a purchase - and needed to use the restroom.
They denied him the code.
He then finds a white man, Weston, who came out of the restroom.
He had not made a purchase but they gave HIM the code.
— Shaun King (@ShaunKing) April 16, 2018
Then, almost the exact same thing happened on the west coast. A black man named Brandon Ward was also denied access to the bathroom at a Stabucks in L.A. for not purchasing anything. However, a white man WAS granted access to the bathroom who also hadn't purchased anything. He caught his encounter on camera as well. Check it above.
So, is the "racial bias training" enough or are we still boycotting Starbucks. Speak on it in the comments!

Savagery! Tristan Thompson’s baby girl almost carried the Kardashian last name amid his cheating scandal that came to light days before Khloe Kardashian gave birth. Get the deets, plus everything else you need to know about the scandal inside…
Last week, the Internet EXPLODED when receipts of Tristan Thompson cheating on his then pregnant girlfriend Khloe Kardashian hit the fan days before she gave birth. He wasn’t caught with just one girl. There are several. And there is video footage to back up the cheating accusations. Not getting out of this one easy.
With so much noise about Tristan’s cheating ways, it apparently affected Khloe’s decision on the last name of her daughter with the Cleveland Cavaliers baller.
Sources tell TMZ, Tristan and Khloe decided on their daughter’s name, True Thompson, about a month ago. However, when news broke that Tristan was cheating (with videos of him tonguing down other chicks), Khloe started having a change of heart. She didn’t know if she wanted to give the baby Kardashian or Thompson as the last name when it was time to fill out the baby’s birth certificate.
After a few days of thinking it over, the “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star decided to give the baby Tristan’s surname.
The site also noted someone close to Khloe placed an order for blankets and other baby stuff to be embroidered at Petit Tresor in Beverly Hills. It’s reported the order was made at the same time the scandal broke and the store was told to hold off stitching “TT” on the items. Once Khloe made her decision, the call was made to use the initials “TT” instead of “TK.”
After news broke about Tristan’s infidelity and right before Khloe gave birth, there were reports that Khloe was experiencing "early contractions.” It could have just been a coincidence since her due date was in late April, or the stress of finding out her man was cheating could have sent her into labor. A whole mess.
When Khloe started having contractions, the Kardashian Klan jetted to Cleveland to be by her side. Sources say Khloe believes Tristan was set up. Really, girl?
A source told the Sun Online:
“Khloe knew about the first video taken months ago and was somehow convinced by Tristan that it was a set up.
"They did fight about it but she wanted so much to trust him and she was already pregnant with his baby.
“She thought they were the aggressors and took the video. She wanted to believe it was all a set up.
“She only just learned yesterday about the latest videos and pictures taken on Saturday that included him taking Lani into a hotel room twice and she is devastated. This was an incredibly painful blow for Khloe.”
One of the chicks Tristan was slobbing down in the club back in October came forward to address the scandal. The woman caught kissing Tristan on the surveillance video (that was captured in October 2017 in a D.C. club) name is Marie (above). She claims she thought Tristan’s relationship with Khloe wasn’t that serious and she had no idea he had a baby on the way. Hmm…does she not get on the Internet?
Unfortunately for Khloe, it gets worse.
There’s a fifth woman linked to the Cavaliers player. According to The Daily Mail, a woman named Tania had been getting cozy with Tristan while Khloe was pregnant. Hours after Tristan and Khloe welcomed baby True, the site got their hands on flicks of the baller meeting up with the high-end sales associate at the Four Seasons Downtown in Manhattan back in November. In fact, they were spotted at the same hotel multiple times over the last few months, dined together and hit up the club together.
It’s reported, Tania hopped on a flight back in February to watch Tristan and the Cavaliers hit the court against the Boston Celtics. As for their latest spotting, they were photographed together on March 24th at Pergola, a NYC nightclub. Damn. Weeks before the baby was born. Trash!
See flicks of the fifth woman here.
Cardi B, who recently went through her own cheating scandal involving her fiance Offset, has some words of advice for Khole.
During an interview with "Big Boy Neighborhood," the soon-to-be first time mom, who took her fiance back, dropped some encouraging words for Khloe:
“Just do what your heart feel like doing, just do what your heart feels like is right,” she said. “At the end of the day, everybody wanna act like they deacons and pastors and they relationships is perfect,” she said.
“You don’t know what type of things are happening in their relationship.” “You don’t know how old certain receipts are,” she continued. “People like to make things seem like ’This happened two weeks ago!’ … Let them work things out.”
Peep the full interview above.
We also hear Khloe is still deciding on whether she will stay with Tristan, as her whole family has now made it clear to her that he is a serial cheater. And they allegedly told her this before they got serious as well.
"The Kardashian family has been very cold towards Tristan since the scandal broke. They aren't pleased with him at all and are heartbroken for Khloe. Everyone has remained civil this past week for the sake of the baby, but deep down they are all furious. They feel Tristan was deceitful and are ashamed that he was lying to all of them," the source tells E! News.
"Loyalty is huge in their family, and once the trust is lost, it's hard to get everyone on board again. The family has Khloe's back and are only worried about making sure True is taken care of on all fronts. They are urging her to do what's best for True."
So, do you think Khloe is going to work things out with Tristan or nah?
New hair, new bae, who dis?! See how Paula Patton just switched her whole style up inside...
Well well well. Hot mama Paula Patton was already part of the MILF gang ever since having baby boy Julian 8 years ago. Now, the divorced hottie has a new movie (and it's good, too!) on the way. And a new bae on her arm to help her celebrate. Eeeeooow! *Cardi B. voice*
Since her ex-husband Robin Thicke wasted no time moving on with a new girlfriend & new baby, it's only right Paula gets her groove back too. It helps that Paula and Robin have been on good terms ever since they divorced four years ago (with a rocky year or so in the mix), and they seem to be making co-parenting work.
Traffik - a thriller that has a surprising message that you need to see - hits theaters April 27th. It also stars Laz Alonso and the fine Omar Epps as her love interest.
Get it, Paula!
Starbucks has tapped a few esteemed blacks to develop the curriculum for their racial bias training next month. Find out who will be behind it, plus details about more complaints at the Philly store and more inside…
Starbucks is making all the headlines after two black men were arrested at a store in Philadelphia while waiting to meet up with a friend. As the backlash took over social media, Starbucks immediately issued an apology and the CEO, Kevin Johnson, went on television to personally apologize. And they’re doing more than apologizing.
We told you Starbucks will be closing nearly 8,000 stores on May 29th to train employees on racial bias. The trainings will address implicit bias, promote conscious inclusion and prevent discrimination, the company said.
Luckily, they decided to hire a few black people to develop the curriculum of these trainings and they will also monitor the effectiveness of the company’s policy and training measures. Good, because we were worried.
BREAKING: LDF President and Director-Counsel @Sifill_LDF will join a team of experts to develop an anti-discrimination training curriculum for Starbucks employees and monitor the effectiveness of the company’s policy and training measures. More: https://t.co/NBRs6OKc0Bpic.twitter.com/pp6XZoKJJ2
— Legal Defense Fund (@NAACP_LDF) April 17, 2018
Former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder; Sherrilyn Ifill, president and director-counsel of the NAACP League Defense and Education Fund; Bryan Stevenson, founder and Executive Director of the Equal Justice Initiative; Heather McGhee, President of Demos; (along with Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan Greenblatt) are the group of leaders who will provide guidance to Starbucks.
Sherrilyn Ifill http://www.naacpldf.org/press-release/ldf-president-and-director-counsel... ">issued a statement about joining the team:
“Being treated with respect and dignity at a place of public accommodation is an essential aspect of full citizenship. The reality is that most Black Americans regularly face the indignities of being treated with suspicion, asked to pre-pay for service or denied service altogether, or told they cannot use a store bathroom. That reality was underscored in stark terms last week, when two Black men went to a Starbucks in Philadelphia for a meeting, only to be arrested and spend hours in police custody. The shocking discrimination they endured reflects the dual reality for many Black people who suffer both from race discrimination by retailers and racial profiling by law enforcement.
“Starbucks has expressed its intention to take seriously this critical effort and to work long-term to fulfill its obligation to ensure that all customers are afforded dignity and respect in its public spaces. This will take work. Starbucks must make clear that it does not tolerate any racial profiling or discrimination of any kind in its stores, and it must identify and implement concrete and measurable steps to keep itself accountable to that commitment.
“LDF has long worked to eradicate race discrimination against customers by retailers. This work is the legacy of this nation’s civil rights laws which were designed to attack discrimination in public spaces – schools, transportation, public accommodations – and to protect the dignity of communities of color in these spaces. Working with Starbucks to design a training curriculum, and to implement the additional measures necessary to identify and remedy the racial discrimination and bias exhibited in this incident, and others like it, furthers that work.”
Of the U.S. based stores, 8,222 are company owned, and those are the stores that will participate in the training. It’s unclear if the remaining 5,708 stores that are licensed will participate as well. So your favorite Starbucks might be shut down on the afternoon of May 29th. There are over 28,000 Starbucks stores worldwide.
Oh, and get this…
The city of Philadelphia has reportedly launched an investigation into additional “informal complaints” at the downtown Starbucks location. Go figure! The city’s mayor Jim Kenney said they are looking into the complaints.
"The PCHR has received informal complaints about the specific Starbucks location since the matter arose," the commission said in a statement."Any information regarding these complaints are part of our current investigation, and thus are deemed confidential."
Good. We're sure there are several more cases like the one that just went down.
