    Just as we were all celebrating Paula Patton getting her groove back, a source alleges Paula's new man is VERY MARRIED. His wife is reportedly distraught over being blindsided. The super messy story inside...

    Just hours after Paula Patton was spotted making her public debut today holding hands with her new bae, all the tea was spilled on the mystery man. And we mean ALL the tea.

    Paula kept his name and identity a secret while talking to Extra TV today, but admitted she's in a new relationship:

    “I have a boyfriend now. I haven't called anybody a boyfriend. He's my boyfriend!”

    Paula and her new beau have been dating for “a month.” She added, “But when you know, you know. I love him.”

    But get this, a source spilled to Page Six everything about him.  Paula's new man has been identified as Zachary Quittman, and he's allegedly very married.  With kids.  And he's allegedly already moved in with her.

    They’re married, they’re not even legally separated,” a source exclusively told Page Six of Zachary Quittman, the man the actress recently gushed about in an interview while promoting her new movie “Traffik.”

    “He doesn’t even have his stuff out of the house,” the source said Tuesday.

    Moved a man into your home after a month? Oh, ok girl. We guess you do "just know." But did you know he's supposeldy married? That's the real question.

    Paula also gave a hypothetical  on Extra- which is seemingly not so hypothetical afterall - about meeting someone new saying,

    “If you have a kid and you have a basketball game, look at the daddies... It's kind of a suburban romance. He's got kids, I got a kid. It’s one of those!”

    We're pretty sure this is how they met if the other tea we just learned is true. Apparently, Zachary “coaches a lot of kids sports [teams], so he’s known by a lot of families.” This according to the same source who claims he's married.

    Hmph.

    Page Six told the source about Paula's "Extra" interview, and the source is "disgusted" Paula would even speak about how she and Zachary met. Apparently, the wife is even more livid her husband would blindside her and their kids like this.

    “I’m just kind of disgusted that [Paula] is being that callous to talk about the basketball game when we come from a very small town and everybody knows about this.”

    “[His wife’s] on the floor, [but] she’s so worried about the safety of the kids,” the source said. “She just doesn’t want to rock the boat.”

    To make matters worse, Paula allegedly knows Zachary's wife quite well as they run in the same mom-social circle:

    Quittman’s now-estranged wife, who “thought [Patton] was nice,” having spent time with her in social settings with other moms, “has just been shocked.”

    The source dragged Zachary about being obsessed with his body and selling his own image, basically to make up for the fact he's a trust fund kid who never really made anything of himself.

    "He’s like a trust fund kid, his mom is like no. 1 in real estate, he’s a good salesperson, so I’m sure he’s selling himself … he hasn’t really made anything of himself in his life and being in the spotlight is great for him,” adding, “he’s all about what he looks like, his body, his tattoos, he’s a very selfish man.”

    Remember when Paula accused her now ex-husand Robin Thicke of cheating on her with his current girlfriend April Love Geary? Well, so does the source.

    “[Patton] paints herself as the jilted woman who was left for another woman, but she’s doing the same f–king s–t, she’s a hypocrite,” the source said.

     photo 947653632_zpsitp76mdz.jpg 

    Zachary is supposedly scheduled to travel to London with Paula (pictured above at this week's Atlanta screening) next month as the next stop on her Traffik press tour. If even the smallest drip of this tea is true, that would be a bold move on Paula's part.

    EMMY winner Lena Waithe is still nabbing awards that recognize her #BlackExcellence.

    “The Chi” creator was awarded the GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Individual Episode (presented by Halle Berry) for her work on the “Thanksgiving” episode in the 2nd season of “Master od None.” It’s the same episode that won her an EMMY. The GLAAD Media Awards recognize and honor media for their fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer community and the issues that affect their lives.

    During her acceptance speech, she begged the LGBTQ community to stop labeling each other with all these different labels and to unify as one.

    Here’s some of what she said:

    “A lot of people ask me why I say I’m queer,” she said after accepting her award from Halle Berry. Waithe won for her work on the “Thanksgiving” episode in the second season of “Master of None,” which chronicles her own coming out story — for which she also won an Emmy last year.

    “I say that because I think it’s a big umbrella. I don’t want to separate myself from my trans family, my non-binary, bisexual [family],” she said. “I feel like sometimes we can be a little segregated, you know what I mean?”

    “We need to be united, because Laverne Cox’s struggle may look different than mine, but the pain we feel is the same,” she said. “Someone who may be A-sexual may have a different journey than mine, but we have a similar life.”

    “There’s things we have in common,” she continued. “And at the end of the day, we’re already ‘othered,’ so why should we ‘other’ ourselves anymore than we already are?”

    No lies told.

    Alicia Keys is all about women empowerment, so it was no surprise she showed up at Variety’s Power Of Women” shindig held at Cipriani Wall Street in NYC. In fact, the Grammy Award winner was one of this year's honorees.

    We can’t say this look on the “In Common” singer is our favorite. She snapped it up in a printed Calvin Klein tunic dress, cinching her waist with a Proenza Schouler belt. Are you all felling this?

    However...

    Solange graces the cover of DAZED magazine's Spring/Summer 2018 issue where she opens up about how she gets in her zone to create music. See her cover and spread, plus her new, extra artsy dance video inside...

     photo solod1.png

    After rocking out on stage during Beyonce’s EPIC Coachella performance, Solange graces the cover of DAZED magazine’s Spring/Summer 2018 issue. And the eccentric free spirit pays tribute to her “spiritual home” in Jamaica. In the issue, the “Cranes In The Sky” singer pens a poetic seven-part thank you to Jamaica, sharing her favorite memories on the island, accompanied by a photoshoot shot on location.

    You see, Solo has a special connection with Jamaica. Especially, St Elizabeth.

    “I’ve spent two Christmases, one Thanksgiving, one breakup, one breakdown and one birthday in St Elizabeth,” she reveals. “I’ve spent many a day on the beach, just my son and I, both of us reading and running and smiling wide in the sun, tasting the salt in the corners of our mouths.”

     photo solod3.png

    The Grammy Award winner has been spending a lot of time on the island as she creates new music. Once she gets in her zone, she says she always feels a bit “unbalanced.” And that’s probably a good thing because her album A Seat At The Table was FIRE.

    “When I am creating new work, I always feel a bit unbalanced,” she shares. “The circles get darker, my jaw a bit tighter, my hair less combed, my spirits more unaligned. I don’t sleep very well. I’m always buzzing.”

    You can read her full interview when her issue is released tomorrow, April 19th.

    Since she’s always “buzzing” that means she’s always working. And not just on music. She fully embraces everything artistic and she’s now interested in “activating” spaces as she designs performances for museums and galleries.

     photo soloart.png

    The 31-year-old singer-songwriter-turned-artist is taking her visual art game to the next level. She recently premiered her new visual art piece -- interdisciplinary video and dance performance – at Los Angeles’ Hammer museum.

    The visual art piece highlights a new sculpture, titled Metatron’s Cube, that she conceptualised and created to create. The cube will travel across the nation to be put on display.

    Solo described the piece to DAZED in a statement where she said:

    “In the past I have designed my sets and sculptures to exist in relationship to my performance pieces. I’m excited about transitioning into creating larger scale works that have the duality of existing as part of a performance and then as a standalone sculpture that can be engaged with by the public. “It was important to me to make the piece modular so that it can be quickly assembled in different landscapes allowing people to have individual interactions and experiences.”

    “Metatronia explores the process, and mapping of creation,” she said. “The piece is an exercise on following the intuitive force that guides us, helping us to create space, and silence the mind to create the work. Continuing my practices and interest in exploring the relationship of movement and architecture as a meditation, Metatronia centers around building frequency and creating charge through visual storytelling.”

    Solo directed the dance video in partnership with Uniqlo. And of course, she choreographed the dance routine (in collaboration with Gerard & Kelly) that features dancers from California State University.

    Now wait a whole minute.  Just hours after Paula Patton's new boyfriend was accused of being married and not separated, he's saying they are technically separated.  Paula also wasted no time bringing her man on TV with her! Deets inside...

    Well, somebody's lying.

    42-year-old Paula Patton's new 30-year-old man Zachary Quittman is refuting reports that he's still all the way married to his wife of 20 years.  He allegedly completely blindsided her when he and Paula went public yesterday.

    While a source close to his wife spilled all the tea saying he hadn't even moved his things out of the house yet, Zachary's saying they're separated.  And they're only married "by law."

    This is quite the different notion the source was telling.  The person said yesterday:

    They’re married, they’re not even legally separated,” a source exclusively told Page Six of Zachary Quittman, the man the actress recently gushed about in an interview while promoting her new movie“Traffik.”

    “He doesn’t even have his stuff out of the house,” the source said Tuesday.

    The source also said the wife was blindsided and completely distraught:

    “[His wife’s] on the floor, [but] she’s so worried about the safety of the kids,” the source said. “She just doesn’t want to rock the boat.”

    Chile, a mess.

    Zachary wasted no time hitting up the press in response, and he tells RadarOnline:

    "Well technically by law I'm married. But I'm separated.  And have been for a while now."

    He insist he was separated "long before" he started dating Paula last month.  But, the two have known each other for a long while as their children are on the same basketball team.  Paula's supposedly even cool with his wife since they're in the same mommy circle!

     

    Today on "Live with Kelly and Ryan," Paula gushed even more about her new bae. The video is above.

    She told the hosts:

    "He’s an amazing human. He makes me so happy. And I’m in love. The first boyfriend since I got divorced. When you know you know. im 42 years old and now I know. Trust me."

    The hosts put the camera on Zachary, who was standing right next tot he cameramen watching, and he looked more than happy to be seen.

    It was likely pre-recorded, so we'll give her the benefit of the doubt she wasn't thins bold to bring this man on TV even if there was a possibility he's been lying.

    When Jesus say yes....

     

    Michelle Williams is engaged! But it's her and her fiance's love story - and that RING - that have us in our feelings. Get it all inside...

    It would take a self-help style retreat for a pastor and a pop star to meet. And it only took a year for them to make it official.  But they KNEW they were each other's "one" before that.  Michelle & Chad got engaged a month ago, and they're just now telling the super cute story in People magazine.

    Back in March 2017, Destiny's Child singer and businesswoman Michelle Williams met Chaplin to NFL teams Chad Johnson at the Elevate International retreat when they were both in dark places in their lives.

    “I was in a horrible, dark place,” says Williams, 37, who had recently ended a relationship and opened up about a cheating ex on The Real. “I just needed to go somewhere where I could get a message of hope and restoration, rejuvenation — get connected to God.”

    “When we met, both of us were in very similar places on a personal level,” says Johnson, who at the time had all but given up dating. “Michelle was coming off the heels of a really bad relationship, and I was just in a place of despair as well.”

     photo michelle_zpslmpgofky.jpg

    They focused on the retreat, and not each other, but afterwards Chad made his move after being egged on by a friend to do it. 

    “I mean, he was cute,” the singer admits, “but I did not go to flirt with the pastor!

    Yessss he's cute and he luhhh God.

    Chad texted her about basically feeling her vibe and asked to "connect" sometime, and her response was "Connect?????"  He thought it was shade, until  she slid into his IG Stories with a comment. They FaceTimed and talked ever since.  Michelle revealed:

    “We spent almost three months without even seeing each other, just building a strong foundation on the phone and through FaceTime; it was really built on friendship and communication.”

    Then, months later, they started dating.

    In July — while on their first actual date at a wedding in the Dominican Republic — the pair shared their first kiss and took their relationship to the next level. “I told her, ‘I’ve been looking. I don’t want to look anymore. I’m done. My search is over,'” Johnson recalls of the moment they decided to date officially.

    She waited until July to tell anyone - including Beyonce and Kelly - that she was talking to Chad.

     photo Screen Shot 2018-04-20 at 10.59.04 AM_zpsj96aksmg.png

    How they knew they'd fallen for the other:

    “What kept drawing me and drawing me at first was I felt like I could be myself,” says Williams, who notes her fiancé calls her by her birth name. “My first name is Tenitra; my middle name is Michelle. I felt like I could be Tenitra: just ratchet, I didn’t have to have on any makeup, if I had to have on my hair bonnet — he just made me feel very safe in being myself.”

    “Here’s this Destiny’s Child girl — but when I got to personally interact with her, I saw her around others and her humility stood out in ways that I can’t even articulate,” says Johnson. “When you see someone operate behind the scenes, with no camera, with no mic, no makeup on? She does not carry herself above anybody. Humility’s not something that you can fake.”

    Chad talks about their interracial love saying:

    “I’m white, she’s black,” says Johnson. “What a special time for our relationship to be on display in that respect with the tension in the world and in our country.”

     

     

    Chad popped the question last month in Pebble Beach, California and clearly, it was everything.  The nuptials seem like they're going to go down soon, and Michelle wants a huge wedding:

     

    “We do wanna get married very, very soon,” says Williams, who has already chosen a dress. “We’ve been moving very quickly and planning. Why wait? I want to get married now, but he wants a wedding!”

    Michelle said the day after the engagement Chad was pushing for them to pick a date and get this wedding train poppin'. Not mad.

    The cute couple does already have an idea for a theme.  Chad revealed:

    “She was like, ‘Can we just revel in the moment, relish the feeling? ‘And I’m like, ‘Let’s go, let’s go!’ It’s gonna be … think James Bond-meets-Midsummer Night’s Dream — with a little hood in it [laughs]. It’s gonna be very traditional. We’re doing black-tie. We want it to be small and intimate and very private.”

    And yes, you can expect her Destiny's Child besties to be there too.

    The twosome have an inspirational gem about patience in love that we all need to hear:

    “Don’t lose hope in love,” says Williams. “I do think you should not focus so much that if you’re not in love that you get depressed about it. I was in a place where I was like, I’m just going to focus on my career and my family and just keep it moving. I started taking myself out; I started traveling by myself, to the point where I loved being by myself.”

    Come on, message!

     

     

    Now about that stunning ring!  Chad saved up for it over a period of 11 years...even though he only met Michelle last year.

     

    “On my 30th birthday, everybody came and celebrated me. The next day, I woke up alone. I was so lonely. I had a little pity party. My personal life was lacking so much, and I was living so single,” recalls Johnson, who turns 41 in July. “So as a response to that moment, I opened up a ring account, and for 11 years, I put $150 into a ring account.”

    Every month I’d put money into that account; I would just say, ‘My wife’s coming; this is for my wife.’ I did that for 11 years.” Still, he admits it wasn’t always easy: “At six, seven, eight years in, I wanted to pull that money out and spend it on a sports car!”

    “When I had the moment that I knew Michelle was it, I was so excited to get that money and go buy that ring,” he says. “There’s so much in that ring. That’s 11 years of my belief in my wife coming for me.”

    That's a whole other level of manifestation. Talk about putting your money where your vision board is!

     photo Screen Shot 2018-04-20 at 10.58.22 AM_zps4ppgyai7.png

    He clearly has good taste, because all his saving and believing led him not only to an amazing wife-to-be, but this bomb 5 carat ring. So bomb that Michelle was "weeping and wailing", so Chad says, as he proposed. Ha!

     

     photo michelle 4_zpsnsevrwjd.jpg

    Apparently, it's right on par with the one she had screenshot for herself a few months ago:

    “I saw this ring in February — a friend of mine is a wedding planner from London, and I just saw this ring, and it stood out to me! And I took a screenshot of it like, ‘God, I would really like something like this.’ But how do you tell your man to make sure he gets the right ring?” Williams says.

    “But I was like, no, whatever he gets me … But then the ring that spoke to me is almost identical to the ring Chad had already purchased and designed! It’s kind of like God was showing me, this is what’s to come,” she adds. “It was really, really crazy.”

    Either minds-in-love think alike, or he secretly put in work to find out her preference. Either way, what a man!

     

    That amazing feeling of getting off the stage, running back to the dressing room and I see someone standing there waiting for me! I always wondered how our worlds would mesh. I always wanted to protect who you are, your ministry and platform because people are nuts and cruel, but you have covered me, prayed for me and told me that wherever I go, and whatever stage I stand on to be a light! Soooooooo sorry I jumped on you but I’m glad to know you have muscles to hold me! You so stronnnnnnnng! I’ve waited yeeeeeeears for someone who could come in to my world and be CONFIDENT and NOT insecure, love who I love and genuinely be there for people!! I LOVE YOU @chadjohnson77!!! #HoldOn #LoveIsComing #IPrayRealTrueGodlyLoveForEveryone #ThankYouJesus @parsons

    Meghan Markle has a major “Jackie O” fashion moment one month before she’s set to tie the knot with Prince Harry. Meanwhile, her half-sister Samantha Grant is still talking. Get the latest on the royal wedding, plus peep pics of Sofia Richie practicing her step mommy duties inside…

     photo IMG_3488.jpg

    Meghan Markle is on everyone’s radar as we’re one month away from her trekking it down the isle to to live happily ever after with Prince Harry. It’s going to be the wedding of the century as we will gain our first American princess. Yes, we know she will not OFFICIALLY be labeled as a princess, but we love the idea of her being our American princess.

    The royal bride-to-be had a huge fashion moment when she popped up at Commonwealth Women’s Empowerment reception, hosted by the Foreign Secretary, at the Royal Aeronautical Society in London yesterday. It’s likely her most iconic look to date. Why? Well, the 36-year-old took a page from former First Lady Jackie Kennedy’s fashion book.  And y'all know THEY love ish like that. 

    The former “Suits” star rocked a black ‘Jackie o’ dress from Black Halo, paired with a black Gucci mini Dionysus bag, and she accessorized her look with diamond earrings and jewelry from Canadian brand Birks.

     photo CHOGMLondon2018Day4QbLFDqeZIRhl.jpg

    Prince Harry approved!

    And so do we.

    Before this spotting...

     photo MMH1.jpg

    Meghan and her Prince attended a reception with delegates from the Commonwealth Youth Forum at the Queen Elizabeth II conference Centre on Wednesday. For the royal appearance, Meghan chose to the Audrey Pinstriped Stretch-Cotton Trench Dress from Altuzarra paired with a black blazer from Australian label Camilla and Marc and a monochrome Avalon Zip Top Crossbody handbag from Oroton, an Australian accessories brand.

    Meghan and Prince Harry were on official royal business as the Prince was recently given the new role as Commonwealth Youth Ambassador by the Queen. Since then, he opened the Youth Forum, which aims to give young people across the Commonwealth the chance to build cross-cultural connections and networks.

     photo MeghanMarkleCHOGMLondon2018Day33L21GoMa6sbl.jpg

    Speaking before guests, Prince Harry gushed about Meghan joining him

    "In my new role I will work to support The Queen, my father The Prince of Wales, and my brother William, all of whom know that young people are the answer to the challenges of today," the Prince said

     photo IMG_3354.jpg

    "I am also incredibly grateful that the woman I am about to marry, Meghan, will be joining me in this work, of which she too is hugely excited to take part in."

    Aww!

    Meanwhile...

    Meghan’s half sister Samantha Grant is STILL talking. Girl, really?

    Well she is. And she had a message for daytime talk show host Wendy Williams.

    British journalist Andrew Morton, who published Princess Diana’s “Diana: Her True Story,” stopped by the “Wendy Williams Show” to chat about his new unauthorized biography about the life of Meghan Markle titled, “Meghan: A Hollywood Princess.”

    While working on the book, the biographer spoke with Meghan’s half-sister Samantha Grant and she wanted everyone to know they are NOT from Crenshaw, which has been previously reported. However, Crenshaw and Woodland Hills is literally miles away.

    “Tell Wendy Williams we are not from Crenshaw in Los Angeles. We’re from Woodland Hills. So, Meghan is a Valley girl,” she said.

    Oh. OK, girl.By the way, Samantha didn't receive an invitation to the wedding and she's pissed. So, she'll likely keep talking to keep her 15 minutes of fame going a little longer.

    Peep the interview above.

    As for another relationship...

    Sofia Richie, daughter of singer Lionel Richie, is getting in some step-mommy practice. And she’s not just easing into it. She’s already tackling step-mommy life by looking after all three of her boyfriend Scott Disick’s kids he shares with Kourtney Kardashian.

    The 19-year-old and her 34-year-old boyfriend (who celebrates a birthday next month) took Scott’s kids – Mason, Penelope and Reign– toy shopping at Toy Crazy in Malibu. A much different “outing” than she’s used to, especially while all her friends were living their best lives at Coachella this same weekend.

    However, Scott’s ex-girlfriend/children’s mother Kourtney Kardashian WAS there at Coachella, so it could have gotten awkward.

    Also...

    Sofia made a grocery run at Erehwon Organic for stock up the fridge. She's going to need all the snacks for her when her boyfriend's kids visits. Apparently, the shirt she was wearing is the same shirt she wore during a sushi date with Scott earlier in the week.

     photo IMG_3381.jpg

    So, how long do you think it will take before Sofia is over playing step mommy?  We give it three months (two of which will be her just trying to prove folks wrong).

    Two years after we lost singing icon Prince, new information and videos surrounding have surfaced. Get the deets on Prince likely not knowing he was taking a deadly counterfeit drug, plus peep new videos of the Purple One inside…

    Days before the 2nd anniversary of Prince’s death, new information surrounding his untimely death has been released. We now know the 57-year-old legendary singer reportedly didn’t know he was taking Fentanyl, the powerful drug that killed him inside his estate, Paisley Park on April 21st, 2016. Apparently, he thought he was taking the painkiller Vicodin, but in reality he was ingesting a deadly dose of Fentanyl.

    Carver County Attorney Mark Metzheld at a press conference days before his death anniversary in Prince's home county.

    “The evidence demonstrates that Prince thought he was taking Vicodin and not Fentanyl,” he said.

    He said police found several pills in Prince’s possession that did not have prescriptions written on them. However, they don’t know where they came from.

    Since they can’t figure out how Prince got his hands on the pills, no criminal charges are being filed in his death.

    “Nothing in the evidence suggests Prince knowingly ingested Fentanyl. In addition, there is no evidence that any person associated with Prince knew Prince possessed any counterfeit pills containing Fentanyl,” he continued. “In all likelihood, Prince had no idea that he was taking a counterfeit pill that could kill him.”

    “Others around Prince also likely did not know that the pills were counterfeit and containing Fentanyl. There is no evidence that the pill or pills that actually killed Prince were prescribed by a doctor. There’s also no evidence to suggest any other sinister motive, intent or conspiracy to murder Prince. The evidence suggests Prince had long suffered significant pain, became addicted to pain medications, but took efforts to protect his privacy.”

    “Despite the intensive law enforcement investigation, there is no reliable evidence showing how Prince obtained the counterfeit Vicodin laced with Fentanyl or who else may have had a role in delivering the counterfeit Vicodin to Prince.”

    The bottom line is, they don't have enough evidence to proceed with charges against anyone. He said the fact that criminal charges were not brought up, does not mean some person or persons associated with Prince did not assist or enable Prince in obtaining the counterfeit pills. People will have their suspicions, but you can’t support criminal charges on suspicions.

    Peep the full conference below: 

     

    A day before his death...

     photo princevideo.png

    The singer was filmed entering a clinic to see Minnesota doctor Dr. Michael Todd Schulenberg along with his bodyguard. Dr. Schulenberg was accused of illegally prescribing painkiller Percocet to Prince in his bodyguard/longtime friend Kirk Johnson’s name. The singer asked to have the prescription written in Kirk’s name to protect his privacy. Dr. Schulenberg has agreed to pay $30,000 over a federal civil violation, however the settlement is not an admission of wrongdoing. Mr. Metz confirmed that during his press conference.

    Peep the video below:

    Also, cops have released video from inside Prince's home moments after they found him dead. The blacked out cricle in the clip is Prince's body. Check it:

    The two black men who were arrested in a Philadelphia Starbucks (for nothing) are speaking out and they continue to amaze us! Find out what they said inside…

    A week after two black men, named Rashon Nelson and Donte Robinson, were arrested in a Philadelphia Starbucks, the guys are speaking out for the first time. In case you missed, see our post on Rashon HERE.

    You’ll recall, Rashon and Donte were arrested while waiting on their colleague, Andrew Yaffe, for a real estate meeting. Donte asked if he could use the restroom but was told he couldn’t since he hadn’t purchased anything. Next, the store manager (who no longer works at the Starbucks) allegedly asked the guys to leave. When they didn’t, she called the police and law enforcement came in and arrested them with no questions asked.

    Now, the guys are speaking out about what went down, and they share some telling information.

    In an interview with “Good Morning America” co-anchor Robin Roberts, we learned the men LITERALLY were there for TWO minutes before Starbucks Becky called the police. According to the police report, the men entered the Starbucks at 4:35pm EST on April 12th. Now, get this. The manager called the police on them at 4:37pm EST! They weren't there 2 minutes before the police were called on them.

    Robin Roberts pointed out that Rashon and Donte claimed the manager NEVER asked them to leave the establishment, just he couldn’t use the restroom since he hadn’t purchased anything. They said when the police arrived at the Starbucks, they didn’t think they were there for them. However, the police approached them, and they claim the police told them they had to leave and never asked any questions about what happened.

    Not only that, when they were arrested they never were read their Miranda rights.

    “We weren’t read any rights. Nothing. Just double locked, handcuffs, behind our back. Escorted out and put into a squad car,” Donte explained. To the people who are saying they shouldn’t have violated Starbucks’ “policy,” here’s what they had to say about that: “I understand rules are rules, but what’s right is right and what’s wrong is wrong. And that’s with any situation whether its race involved or anything,” Donte said.

    Their lawyer Stewart Cohen confirmed the guys are NOT considering civil suits against the coffee company or the city. “I want to make sure this situation doesn’t happen again,” Donte said. “So what I want, is for a young man or young men to not be traumatized by this and instead be motivated, inspired.”

    “Take this opportunity as a stepping stone to really stand up and show your greatness,” Rashon said about what he wants to come from the situation. “And that you are not judged by the color of your skin as our ancestors were or anyone else. This has been going on for years, but everyone is blind to it, if you know what I mean. That is not just a black people thing. It’s a people thing.”

    All facts.

    Peep their first televised interview since the arrest below:

     

    Following the arrests of these men, Starbucks announced they were closing 8,000 of their stores on May 29th for “racial bias training” sessions for its employees. Thankfully, they hired a team of black leaders, including former Attorney General Eric Holder, to create the curriculum for the sessions. Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson went on television to personally apologize. And now, the Philadelphia Police Department is apologizing.

    Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross, a black man who at first backed his officer’s actions, is now backtracking. He fully acknowledged that he played a significant role in making the situation worst and he admitted to making a mistake.

    “I should have said the officers acted within the scope of the law, and not that they didn’t do anything wrong,” he said. “Words are very important.”

    The police commissioner also said the police department did not have a policy for dealing for such situations, but does now, and it will be released soon.

    Philly’s mayor, Jim Kenney, also issued an apology.

    Peep the clip below:

    Reboot season is still in full effect.  But does this just announced Boomerang remake prove everything doesn't need a reboot?  Deets inside...

    Did somebody run this by Eddie Murphy?

    BET and Paramount Television are partnering to reboot the 1992 American romantic comedy and BLACKbuster classic BOOMERANG.

    The flick is a staple in black culture that originally starred Eddie Murphy, Halle Berry, Martin Lawrence and more.

    The original movie centered around a successful executive finds that his lifestyle choices have turned back on him when his new boss turns out to be a bigger deviant than he is.

    Now, this updated version, which will air as a 10-episode half hour comedy series on BET, explores "contemporary workplace dynamics, including the changing role of gender, office politics, relationships, and the conflicts between Generation X and Millennials."

    So, basically, generational warfare replaces the battle of the sexes?  We guess...

    Is this reboot necessary, or nah?

    Keke Palmer says she can totally relate to Beyonce when it comes to making major decisions about her career without moms' co-sign. And she explains the idea of artistry flawlessly.  Find out what she tells TheYBF.com inside…

    When it comes to artistry, folks might not always get it. We know plenty of the white faces in the audience during Beyonce’s historic Coachella performancedidn’t fully understand the unapologetic black greatness that was unfolding in front of their eyes. It was evident in their response to the performance as she put on for the culture.

    They didn’t get it.

     photo kee4.png

    After Bey’s performance, her mother, Tina Lawson, opened up about warning Bey that she didn’t think the predominately white crowd would understand the significance behind her performance. However, Mrs. Carter didn’t care.

    Mama Tina said Bey’s brave response made her feel a bit “selfish” and “ashamed.” Bey told her mother she had to do that performance because at this point in her career, it's her responsibility to do whats best for the world, and not what is most popular.

    Singer/actress Keke Palmer can totally relate. Especially since her and her mother are super close and her mother is a big part of her career as a momager.

    YBF correspondent James Terrellchopped it up with Keke (below, posing alongside Stephen Hill) during her private album listening party for The Boss at New York's 40/40 club this week.

     photo kee1.png

    With a seemingly similar mother-daughter dynamic like the Knowles (KeKe doesn't move two steps without her ride-or-die mama right by her side), we had to ask the quadruple threat if she could relate to Bey in any way when it comes to making career moves your mom doesn’t necessarily approve. Here’s what she dished:

    “Me and my mom be doing stuff like that all the time,” she told TheYBF.com. “I think that’s how it should be. Well, not should be, that’s how it is. Because your parents, family and friends, they overthink all of your decisions. But you, as an artist, have to go with your heart.”

    The 24-year-old entertainer said she didn’t expect anything less from Beyonce’s performance because she’s supposed to have people feel something with whatever she presented before them.

    “Beyoncé is SUPPOSED to do stuff like that that makes people be like ‘Are you sure?’ Otherwise, she's not doing anything risky or something that’s going to make people really feel something. So whether people feel shocked, confused or ‘Girl, you did it,’ it’s going to be something that’s going to make them more intrigued by the performance."

    The “BOSSY” singer thought Bey’s performance was brilliant since now, people who didn’t know about HBCUs or Greek life will start researching to gain knowledge all thanks to the Queen. It's similar to the way “A Different World” was received in the 80's.

    “Even if people watching the performance had no concept of HBCUs or fraternity/sorority lifestyle, they’re now going to give a shit. They’re now going to at least say ‘Let me look into that to know what she was talking about.’ That’s what artistry is,” the Star actress said.

    Spot on, Keke.

    Paula Patton is clearly unbothered by her new boyfriend's baggage.  And by baggage we mean his wife whom he's still legally married to. Pics of the couple taking a rainy romantic stroll and extra loved up at the premiere of her new movie inside...

     

     photo PaulaPattonPremiereCodeblackFilmsTraffikT_g2ll454DZl_zpsqlez5swv.jpg

    Well, like Paula said, "When you know, you know."

    The Traffik star and producer took her new man Zachary Quittman to last night's Hollywood premiere of her movie, and she did anything but hide him.  Just moments after debuting Zachary to the world as her "first boyfriend" since her and her high school sweetheart Robin Thicke divorced a few years ago, all hell broke loose.

    Details surrounding Zachary having a whole wife - whom he's still legally married to - hit the gossip streets with a vengeance.  A source close to his wife spilled all the tea, saying Mrs. Quittman is quite distraught about being blindsided by him suddenly dating Paula.  She also knows Paual as they are in the same mommy-group circle and their kids are on the same basketball team/league.

    Zahary gave his own statement to the press saying he's separated.  According to the source who is close to his wife of 20 years, he's not.

    One would think Paula would run away with the quickness with all this uncertainty, but clearly she's here for the long (or short) haul.  The source also claimed Zachary is all about his own image and is a trust-fund kid.

    Right after their New York whirlwind, Paula and Zachary were back home in L.A. last night for her big premiere.  Holding hands.  And all smiles.

    Before they jetted out of NYC yesterday to get home in time for the red carpet, the twosome was spotted braving the rainy Manhattan streets hand-in-hand after Paula taped "Live with Kelly and Ryan".  They were headed to the "Today" show:

    Who knew Dutchess was contemplating suicide after she left “Black Ink?!” The tattoo vet dishes on battling depression and how the cast terrorized her, in her eyes, after she quit. Plus, we've got Amber Rose’s latest emotional rant inside…

    You never know what a person is going through.

    Former “Black Ink” star turned rapper Dutchess Lattimore recently opened up about how she battled depression bottom after she decided to leave VH1’s “Black Ink” reality series. When she left, she didn’t leave on a good note. She ended things with her fiancé Ceaser and the entire cast hated her guts.

    Taking herself out of the toxic situation seemed like the best thing for her to do, but she had no idea what was in store for her afterwards.

    Dutchess – who now owns her own shop Pretty N Ink in her hometown of Charlotte, NC – hit rock bottom and thought her entire world was crumbling before her eyes after she walked away from the show. While many of us believed she left the show because of her failed relationship with Ceaser, it was actually deeper than that.

    “The show wasn’t in line and in tune with the person that is conducive to the woman that I am supposed to be. And, I had to learn that the hard way,” she said during an interview on “Sister Circle TV.”

    The tattoo shop owner explained how she was automatically the outlier in the group since she was so much different than her co-stars. Being a black women in a male dominated industry, the only one in the bunch who came from a 2-parent home and being an HBCU graduate were all factors that made her realize she should no longer surround herself with the “Black Ink” crew.

    She said once she chucked the deuces to the show, the cast started harassing her relentlessly.

    “When I first walked away from the show I wanted to kill myself,” she revealed. “I went through serious depression. I went through getting harassment from cast members. Death threats from them. They would call my shop and tell my mother [who runs her tattoo shop] the most heinous things that they were going to do to me if I ever came back to New York.”

    She continued, “It got to point where I didn’t think I would ever escape it and this is two and a half years ago, mind you. Then, the new season of the show airs and I’m the topic of discussion for EVERY episode and I’m not even there. So it was like, once I went through depression by myself, now y’all want me to go through public humiliation because you don’t have a storyline? It’s been the hardest. I don’t even watch TV.”

    Damn! We’re glad she’s out of that dark space and is doing better. The North Carolina A&T Aggie is about to embark on a HBCU tour with rapper Trinidad James to empower students in college.

    As for another woman who claims to have haters....

    Amber Rose is ranting on social media…again. 

    This time, she’s all in her feels. Why? Haters! They seem to be getting to her because she revealed she sometimes wishes she could go back to the days when people “actually liked her,” adding she feels like folks are out to get her.

    "Sometimes I wish I could go back to being the regular girl from Philly when people actually liked me for me," she wrote in a rant on Instagram Stories. "I swear to God I feel like no one wants to ever see me happy. Because they feel like I'm undeserving of love."

    It’s unclear if the rant was triggered by her failed relationship with rapper 21 Savage (she’s been very vocal about wanting him back) or if she’s just fed up with fame. However, towards the end of her rant, she realized helping women deal with slut shaming is her life's mission and she’ll continue pushing the envelope by being an “unapologetic sexual being.”

    Ed Hartwell wasted no time impregnating another woman, even though his marriage to Keshia Knight Pulliam still isn't officially over.  Deets inside...

    Ed Hartwell is now expecting another child with the woman who Keshia Knight Pulliam claims was his mistress.

    We broke the story of then-pregnant Keshia & Ed's messy 2016 split, where Keshia was blindsided and found out about her own divorce via online reports.

     photo Screen Shot 2018-04-20 at 8.13.47 PM_zpssutxrpat.png

    Keshia did an interview revealing she already had divorce papers ready herself, because, she claims, he had been cheating on her with his ex fiancé Tonya Carroll.  Their divorce is still ongoing, which means Keshia and Ed are still legally married.

    Fast forward to moments ago when Tonya revealed her big baby news.  She showed off her baby bump, then told her Instagram followers to guess whether she and Ed were having a boy or a girl:

     

     

    Patience is Definitely a Virtue.... #alwaysinGod'sperfection

    Interstingly, Keshia has been fighting Ed in court for the child support she is owed for their daughter Ella Grace.  According to our source, Ed has has been delinquent but has paid some.  Allegedly, he's figuring out every way not to pay.

    We're also told Ed has only has only been to approxiamately 20 of his 80 visits to see baby Ella.

    Ed and Tonya seem happy about their pregnancy news, though.  They rarely post each other, but Tonya made sure to make this news known.

    Tonya also has a teen daughter from a previous relationship:

    SZA explains what went wrong with her Coachella debut. Meanwhile, Beyonce's 2nd Coachella performance will not be streamed, but one real-life YBF teen has us covered. More inside...

    The night SZA was set to rock out on the biggest stage of her career up until that point, but it didn't go anything like she had planned. Literally, everything went wrong. Last weekend was SZA’s debut at Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival and it was a disaster.

    Life has a way of humbling us at the worse times.

    Everything went wrong with the “Love Galore” singer’s set and fans didn't have any problems gathering her life on social media. She had technical difficulties, her friends bailed on her AND she lost her voice! Yeah, the universe totally hated her at that moment.

    "Last week kicked my ass," SZA wrote on Instagram. "Every technical difficulty that could’ve went wrong did . Every "friend" I asked to come out bailed on me. Lost my voice completely. Didn’t even get a chance to play the weekend. Couldn’t believe it was all happening on my biggest stage to date."

    However, she didn’t let the experience bring her spirits all the way down. She assured her fans she would kill it for her next Coachella appearance (last night). And she even threw in a Cardi B lyric for encouragement.

    “I LOVE AND ACCEPT ALL CHALLENGES !! THANK U GOD FOR EVERY GROWTH OPPORTUNITY TO STEP INTO BIGGER DRAWS . I AM BIGGER THAN MY ADVERSITY . DOWN 9 TIMES BUT I GET UP 10!! This Friday is MINE”

     

    Here's some flicks and videos from her performance last night--where she brought out Khalid-- below:

    Ray J and Princess Love will be making a splash on reality TV with a new baby special. Get the deets on their show, plus check out the out of control season 7 promo for “Basketball Wives” inside…

    We’ve watched Ray J grow up. Now, we’re about to see him become a dad.

    The reality star and his wife/”Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood” co-star Princess Love just copped their own VH1 baby special where fans will get a front row seat as the couple welcomes their baby girl into the world.

     photo rayjspinoff2.png

    They’ll be getting parent tips from a reality couple with firsthand experience, Heidi and Spencer Pratt. Ray’s manager David Weintraub, who’s a dad, will  drop some dad gems on the show. He’ll also produce alongside Ray and Princess.

    Rapper Too Short will make an appearance as well.

    As for Heidi and Spencer, they are parents to 6-month-old Gunner. In a clip filmed for the show, Spencer talks about how crazy the journey has been leading up to his son turning 6 months. The guys also debate which kind of alcohol dads should drink.

    Check it below:

    Princess is due to give birth this summer and that's around the time the baby special is reported to premiere. Will you be tuning in?

    Also coming to reality TV...

     

     

    They’re back! And the drama is still popping!

    Shaunie O’Neal, Tami Roman, Evelyn Lozada and the rest of the “Basketball Wives” ladies are back for season 7. And based on this new promo, the girls (we hear you Jennifer Williams) are going to be out of control. You know, the usual. Peep the clip above.

     

     

    "BBW" star Malaysia Pargo recently chopped it up with OK magazine about what fans can expect this season and more. Below are the highlights:

    OK!: What can you tell about the upcoming season of Basketball Wives?

    We have started filming… so far so good. Whenever you get a group of strong bullheaded women together it’s going to be some type of [drama]. It’s not a Kumbaya moment … we’re a sisterhood though. I say that genuinely. A dysfunctional sisterhood but a sisterhood.

    OK!: What can fans expect from you in this season?

    They can expect me to be more assertive and nonbiased. Fans can also expect to see a little more vulnerability from me because I do hold things [close] to the chest. And [they can expect to see me] trying to make peace in a world full of chaos.

    OK!: How do you feel about Brandi not being a part of the cast?

    I’m not happy about it because it’s always great to have one your really great friends to hang out with all the time. We live in separate cities. We don’t get a chance to see each other a lot. So, this was one of the ways that we were able to know for sure that we were going to see each other and have a good time. It’s always a comfort there when you know you have one of your really good friends in your corner. So, it saddens me that she’s not here. I’m kind of on my own.

     

    There's also some fresh meat this season:

     

    "Basketball Wives" Season 7 premieres on Monday, May 14th at 9/8c on VH1.

    Why is Cardi B so funny? Her appearance on “Ellen DeGeneres” will have you cracking up. Go inside to see, plus go backstage with Bardi, Jennifer Lopez and DJ Khaled on the set of their new video “Quiero Dinero” inside…

     

    Cardi B is still hot making press runs since announcing she’s expecting a baby with Migos rapper Offset.

    The “Bodak Yellow” singer was her authentic self during her appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” where she explains to the talk show host exactly how she got knocked up with her first baby. All that twerking she did during her debut performance at Coachella is how baby Bardi got here.

    "I was just trying to show the world how I got pregnant in the first place,” Cardi shared as a picture from her performance was displayed on the screen behind her. “Like that! Like that! That's how it happened."

    The “Bartier Cardi” rapper revealed she and Offset have already named the baby. The Migos rapper did the honors.

    "My dude named the baby,” she confirmed. "I really like the name. Imma let him say the name since he named the baby," Cardi B teased. "It's, like, almost tricky but when it comes out, it's like, 'Ahh!'"

    The soon-to-be first time also talked about how her underarms were itching right before she revealed to the world she pregnant during her performance on “Saturday Night Live.”

    "My underarms started itching because it's like, 'Oh, my God! The world gon' know I'm pregnant! Oh! Here we go! Opinions! Coming!'" Ha!

    Bardi talked about how she would get trouble for clowning around as a kid and more. Peep her interview below:

     

    Just because she's carrying baby doesn't mean her grind has slowed down any...

    We told y’all Jennifer Lopez teamed up with DJ Khaled and Cardi B for a Spanglish track titled “Quiero Dinero,” which translates to “I Want Money.” Now, the trio is working on the visuals for the banger.

     photo JLO2.png

    Before making her way on set, JLo posted a picture of herself on a plane with the caption, “Tell Cardi B and DJ Khaled I’m on my way... gonna get this #DINERO."

    There are very few details about the track, but MTV was able to grab some lyrics from the song before it got yanked:

    "I just want the green / Want the money, Want the cash," JLo sings over Khaled's beat. Then, Cardi hops on the track rapping, "You gon' do what I say / so Cardi B and J-Lo."

    Go behind-the-scenes below: 

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Working with JLo comes with perks. The "Booty" singer gifted Cardi a capsule of her new makeup line: 

     

     

    Thank you @jlo

    Beyonce returned for the 2nd headlining Coachella performance night to re-slay stage once again. This time, she flipped the script with a different color scheme. See the flicks and videos inside…

    Beychella ENCORE!

    Instead of trying to reinvent her larger than life number from the weekend before that was seen across the globe, Beyonce brings her epic HBCU inspired routine back, complete with a co-ed marching band, for the 2nd round of fans who came out to see her live at Coachella. Why try to fix what isn't broke?!

    Unfortunately for the Beyhive, Mrs. Carter’s performance wasn’t live streamed, but fans took plenty of videos to keep us updated. Bey had a tough act to follow…herself. However, she did not disappoint and managed to pull off yet another flawless performance for concertgoers. It was a re-slay if you must.

     photo IMG_3617.jpg

    This time, Bey and her army switched up the color theme to pink from last weekend’s yellow costumes. And all of this weekend’s costumes were created by Balmain‘s Olivier Rousteing, who also created the first weekend’s looks.

    He was also responsible for Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams’ (who just revealed she's engaged) Destiny’s Child reunion outfits, along with the 200+ dancers and band members on stage.

    Destiny's Child did an encore of their performance from last weekend, including a medley of "Lose My Breath," "Say My Name," and "Soldier."

    Bey's hubby Jay Z came out again to perform "Déjà Vu."

    Bey’s sister Solange also returned to join her sister on stage to perform during “Get Mee Bodied.” At one point, Solo jumps into her sister’s arms and they both fall. BUT, they played it off nicely. Check it:

    Does Bambi have a bun in the oven? Sure looks like in the new pic Lil Scrappy posted. Peep the shot and decide if the married couple will be welcoming a Baby Bam or Scrappy Jr. inside…

    First comes marriage, then comes baby.

    “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” stars Lil Scrappy and Bambi MIGHT be coming up on another huge moment in their lives. We’re not 100% sure, but it looks like the married couple, who tied the knot last summer, may be welcoming a baby soon.

     photo scrappybaby.png

    Why do we say this? Well, Scrappy shared a photo of himself, his wife and his daughter Emani RIchardson (whom he shares with former “LAHH: ATL” star Erica Dixon) having dinner Saturday evening. He captioned,“Made it home and went outside with both of my beaurtiful ladies uuummmm so refreshing #TheRichardsons”

     

     

    If you look at Bambi’s midsection, it appears to look very round, much different from her washboard abs she's known for. It also looks like she’s cradling her belly in the photo, which most pregnant moms do. Could it be a food baby? Possibly. But, we’re leaning towards baby bump.

    Also. we’ve noticed Bambi no longer posts videos of her workouts. She also hasn’t been posting many pictures of herself and when she does, we hardly ever see her midsection thanks to oversized clothing or bags. When she does posts flicks that show off her stomach, they appear to be for advertisements, which means the flicks were previously taken.

    We’ll be keeping an eye out on these two. They’re officially on baby bump watch now.

    If they are pregnant, here's what his/her granny has been up to these days:

    It’s the perfect floral dress to wear to a spring time event or a photoshoot.

    The former “Suits” actress was on her way to attend the Invictus Games Sydney celebration reception with her fiancé Reception at Australia House in London. The celebration was thrown in anticipation of the Sydney games coming this October. It’ll be one of the first international trips Meghan and Harry will take as a married couple. They were spotted at the UK Team Trials earlier this month.

    Meanwhile...

    CNN political analyst Angela Rye rocked the same dress at BET's Leading Women Defined event in Miami last month during Women's History Month. She was all smiles in a group photo of powerful women, including former First Lady Michelle Obama, author/speaker Luvvie Ajayi and CNN political commentator/activist Symone D. Sanders.

    Angela and Meghan weren't the only ones feeling this dress...

    As for another fashion face off...
