    Kelis speaks out about her failed marriage with rapper Nas for the first and she’s spilling piping HOT tea. She alleges the rapper would get so drunk where he would physically and mentally abuse her. She said he was a cheater and she also explained why he’s a total fraud. Get your tea cups, it’s a lot inside…

    We thought the nasty custody battle between Nas and Kelis was over when a report was released that they had agreed on sharing joint custody of their 8-year-old son Knight. Then, Nas filed paperwork earlier this month asking a judge to penalize his ex-wife for not letting him see their son on his scheduled visitation. So yeah, their drawn-out custody battle is still going on.

     photo kelis3.png

    However, Kelis is no longer keeping silent!

    The “Milkshake” singer opens up for the first time about her failed marriage to the Queensbridge rapper. And the details about what went down behind-the-scenes are shocking! We say this because during the time they were together, they were #RelationshipGoals. But after they decided to call it quits and Kelis filed for divorce, we started to learn SOME of the details about their rocky relationship.

    During an interview with Hollywood Unlocked, the “Bossy” singer gets uber candid about why she decided to divorce the “Illmatic” rapper while she was 7-months pregnant with their son.

    The Bounty & Full chef says their arguments would get so intense they would literally fight each other at times.

    “There was a lot of mental and physical abuse,” she reveals. “Did he hit me?…..Mmm hmmm. Did I hit him back?…..Mmm hmmm.”

    The "Caught Out There" singer said she didn't divorce Nas because he cheated, but the fact that he was cheating AND abusing her is what caused her to walk away. No woman wants to bring a child into a toxic relationship. She knew he had been cheating two years prior to when she filed for divorce, but she still stayed. It's when she was pregnant is when she knew she had to get out.

    Kelis says when news broke about Chris Brown assaulting Rihanna in 2009, she had bruises all over her body from Nas. She said seeing that go down in the media is one of the reasons she decided to call it quits.

    “When the Rihanna and Chris Brown pictures came out I thought about coming out because I also had bruises all over my body,” she reveals. “But I didn’t say anything because I’m private. But seeing her the way she looked and then looking at myself… I felt embarrassed.”

    Hmm...maybe that's one of the reasons she didn't let Nas in the delivery room when their son was born.

    The 38-year-old singer, who was 22 when she started dating the rapper, says she and Nas shared some intense highs and lows throughout their relationship. And when it got low, it got really dark. She said Nas would get so drunk, black out and that’s when he was at his worst.

    “An intense low….we had a lot. It was really dark. A lot of drinking,” she shares. “A lot of mental and physical abuse and it got to the point where if I wasn’t pregnant, I might have stayed with him.. I was pregnant and it was a mess and I felt like I wasn’t going to bring a child into this.”

    After the abuse, Kelis says Nas would buy gifts. While she enjoyed getting them, she says that got old quick. The smallest things would end up setting him off. One time Jay Z said “Hi” to her at an event and that set Nas off. And this didn’t even happen during the time Hov and Nas were beefing. She said at that particular time, Nas had already signed to Hov. She said it didn’t matter who it was or what it was, there was always an issue.

    The singer says Nas is so obsessed with his image and that’s why people think he’s this “phenomenal person” and why people think she’s a “crazy b*tch” because she doesn’t care about all that. She said he NEEDS attention and loves it.

     photo keliskid.png

    Kelis aired out Nas’ bad co-parenting skills, revealing he just started being semi-consistent within the last two years. But before then, he was NOT involved in his son’s life except for when there was a chance for a “photo-op.” Bloop!

    “A parent isn’t about showing up when you feel like it,” she says. “You can’t not show up for months and then show up and try to make up your own [visitation] schedule.”

    She said she wouldn’t tell their son Nas was coming until he was a the curb to keep him from getting disappointed. Damn. As for Nas’ relationship with Nicki Minaj, Kelis says she would love for them to get back together because all of their recent drama started after they called it quits. She's a married woman with two kids. She's hardly concerned with who her ex-husband is dating.

    Kelis also calls Nas out for being fake:

    “You are a FRAUD! You talk all this Black empowerment and you’re a fraud.”

    Wow.

    As for her next move, she has invested in The Jane Club, a work and community space with an emphasis on women and the working mother. She says women have to stick together and to continue to fight.

    Take a listen to the full interview below. She starts talking about her past with Nas at the 14-minute mark.

    Carmen Bryan (the mother of Nas's first child) also alleged in her 2007 memoir "It's No Secret" that the NYC rapper physically abused her.

    Hmm..how do you all think Nas will respond to this?

    Cardi B is being dragged to court after her former manager pulled the trigger on a $10 million lawsuit. Find out why her ex-manager is after he bag and more about her canceling upcoming tour dates inside…

    The late Notorious B.I.G. said it best, “mo’ money, mo problems.” And Cardi B is learning that the hard way.

    According to reports, Bardi’s former manager, Shaft, is suing her for MILLIONS. Why? Well, he feels like the “Bodak Yellow” rapper has left him out of her success after he claims he was the one to discover her in the first place.

    Shaft (real name Klenord Raphael) makes several claims as to why she should pay him $10 million. Apparently, he discovered her, nabbed her the “Love & Hip Hop” deal, AND he (and his team) supposedly wrote and produced her hit single, “Bodak Yellow.” He claims she sought him out in 2015 to help catapult her career from Instagram star to rap superstar.

    TMZ http://www.tmz.com/2018/04/26/cardi-b-sued-ex-manager/ ">reports:

    Shaft goes on to allege her monster hit allowed her to secure major record and publishing deals worth millions.

    He's also claiming she defamed him by telling her fiance, Offset, and others he robbed her blind. Shaft says last December, Offset texted him and said, "[U] better stop play acting like u don't know u taking her sh** from her u a snake. U can't hide from me N**** and u not bout to play my WIFE."

    Shaft blames Cardi's makeup artist/publicist for poisoning her against him.

    Shaft's rep tells TMZ, "Since discovering Cardi B in 2015, Shaft has played an integral role in developing her music career and public image. While he is proud of their successful collaborations as she evolved from Instagram influencer to music megastar, Shaft is disappointed by her actions to freeze him out of her career, which are detailed in the complaint."

    The rep continues, "Shaft is confident that his lawsuit will validate his conduct and substantiate his legal claims."

    He's suing for $10 million.

    Sheesh! Guess he will have to make a case in court to get those coins.

    Cardi B walking through LAX (above) with that purple blanket over her head and her sunglasses on to hide her eyes is a whole mood. She’s likely making her way on the east coast before she hits the stage for the 2018 Broccoli City Festival in Washington, D.C. this weekend.

    However, this will be her last performance until she has her baby! The soon-to-be first-time mom posted a video on her Instagram page announcing the cancellation of some upcoming tour dates due to her pregnancy. Check it

    "Shawty keep growin'," she said."I be looking like I be moving and everything but in reality, a b*tch barely can breathe!"

    The "Get Up 10" rapper has canceled shows in Texas (Young Thug has replaced her for JMBLYA Music Festival in Houston), Florida, Norway, Ireland and NYC's Panorama Festival.

    Cardi and her fiance Offset are expecting to welcome their new bundle of joy in July. We still don't know if they're having a boy or a girl, but they've already come up with a name for the baby. They either know the sex and aren't telling or chose a unisex name. After she welcomes the baby and gets in some quality bonding time, she'll be ready to return to the stage with Bruno Mars for his upcoming "24K Magic Tour" in September.

    Broccoli City Festival attendees need not to worry whether Cardi will bring her same energy to the stage. Last night, she performed a free concert at UMass Amherst:

     

     

    And she can still serve up a mean twerk session:

    Nicki Minaj channels King Kong in her new "Chun Li" video.  Kinda.  Check out the clip inside...

    Before she drops the visuals in full, Nicki Minaj is teasing her new "Chun Li" video with a sexy, boob-baring BTS-style teaser.  Interestingly, this teaser is nothing like what the actual video will be, even though folks think it is. 

    If you read what she said - and she goes off about people not actually reading more than 2 IG sentences - this teaser is showing off the new dancer she signed.

    Check it:

     

    Nicki revealed in her recent Beats 1 interview that she's now signing her own artists and producers, so she's in full control of her own not-yet-announced label.  As for why she's keeping the name of her new label under wraps, she said it's because she may change it. 

    But she did reveal, "Spiritually, I’m in the best place I’ve ever been in as an artist."

    If you want Nicki to sign you, just tweet her your best shot.  So she says.

    Gabrielle Union is repping for the black creatives who have been doing 10x the work people know about, and only now getting paid for it. Find out why the now award winning producer says "F*** your table!" and killing it at the box office with her own.

    Breaking In hits theater today, and Gabrielle Union's not only playing an everyday hero on screen, she's proving to be a hero in movie and tv space too.

    Gab and producer Will Packer hit up the recent special screening at Atlanta's Regal Atlantic Station that she and the studio invited TheYBF.com to attend.

    Will acknowledged the politicians in attendance - Stacy Abrahms who is running for Governor of Georgia and Atlanta’s new mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms - while Gab kept her comments short and sweet because she lost her voice after #Beychella.  

    We feel you, girl.

     

     photo 950147008_zpsglvmmvpd.jpg

     
    While in Atlanta, Gabrielle and Will also stopped by "Sister Circle TV" to chop it up about their new movie, in theaters today.

    "I don't want a seat at the table.  I actually don't want to be at your table at all. I'm at this house over here and I'm employing people and everybody's included."

    Serving as producer alongside Will this go-round, Gab explained how she managed to wear both the actor and producer hat:

    "We've always had to be that.  Half the time, on certain productions if they don't believe in diversity in the hair and makeup department, then we're hair, we're makeup, we're wardrobe.  You gotta to make sure not only you know your lines, but everybody else knows their lines.  because you want it to be a success.  

    So we've been multitasking as talent forever.  Now we're being given the opportunity to produce as well. For me it's just another day in the park but I'm also getting paid for it finally.  Like Nicki Minaj said, 'I been on!'"

    Say.That.

    Check out her interview below:

     

     

    Before she chopped it up with the ladies, the "Being Mary Jane" star screened the mom-hero flick for a group of VIPs.

    By the way, Gabrielle & Will jetted off to Las Vegas right after the screening so Gab could receive the Cinemacon breakthrough producer of the year award!

    Janelle Monae’s Dirty Computer just dropped today. And before it landed, she opened up about her sexuality and what this album has to do with it. Deets inside…

    Janelle Monae’s third studio album Dirty Computer descended on her FANdroids today. With the album’s release, she also shared a 44-minute "emotion picture" that’s visually stunning and though provoking. We’ll get into that in a bit.

     photo jrolling.png

    Before she unleashed Dirty Computer to the masses, the "Electric Lady" chopped it up with Rolling Stone magazine where she put a long running rumor to rest. Since popping up on the music scene with her androgynous steez, some folks wondered if she played for the other team or not. Turns out, it’s a bit more complicated than that.

    "Being a queer black woman in America," she says, taking a breath as she comes out, "someone who has been in relationships with both men and women – I consider myself to be a free-ass motherfucker." She initially identified as bisexual, she clarifies, "but then later I read about pansexuality and was like, ‘Oh, these are things that I identify with too.' I'm open to learning more about who I am."

    So, there you have it. According to Webster's dictionary a pansexual is a person not limited in sexual choice with regard to biological sex, gender, or gender identity.

    And everyone has been researching it:

     

     

    It’s unclear who Janelle is currently dating, but the rumor mill is buzzing that she could be in a romantic relationship with Tessa Thompson after she starred in Janelle’s "Make Me Feel" and “PYNK” videos. The chemistry between them is quite intense. Remember that lollipop scene?

     

     

     

     photo jrolling3.png

    Growing up in a devoutly Baptist family in Kansas City, Kansas, it’s clear why Janelle wasn’t as open with her family about who’s she dating and hooking up with. We all know how devout Baptists feel about homosexuality. She said the album is like a reaction to homophobic people.

    "I literally do not have time," she says, laughing, "to hold a town-hall meeting with my big-ass family and be like, ‘Hey, news flash!' " She worries that when we visit Kansas City tomorrow, they'll bring it up: "There are people in my life that love me and they have questions, and I guess when I get there, I'll have to answer those questions."

    Over the years, she's heard some members of her family, mostly distant ones, say certain upsetting things. "A lot of this album," she says, "is a reaction to the sting of what it means to hear people in my family say, ‘All gay people are going to hell.' "

    She began questioning the Bible and her family's Baptist faith early on. Now, she says, "I serve the God of love" – love, she's determined, is the common factor among all religions, an idea Stevie Wonder expanded on in a Dirty Computer interlude.

     photo dirtycomputer.png

    The WONDALAND chief (yes she runs her own record label) says she want others to gain courage to be “dirty computers” and not be concerned with fitting into society’s norms.

    "I want young girls, young boys, nonbinary, gay, straight, queer people who are having a hard time dealing with their sexuality, dealing with feeling ostracized or bullied for just being their unique selves, to know that I see you," she says in a tone befitting the "commander" patch on her arm. "This album is for you. Be proud."

    You can read her full interview here.

    To accompany her new album, Janelle also released a 44-minute “emotion picture” with contributions from Zoe Kravitz, Pharrell Williams, Brian Wilson and Grimes. The piece debuted on BET last night. Check it out below:

    The first round of the 2018 NFL draft when down last night and we’ve rounded up all of the YBF hotties, their fashions and several inspirational stories to get you through the day. Get it all inside…

     

     photo NFLrashaanevans3.png

    It’s that time of year again when the NFL selects its newest class of rookies. And the rookies have captured our undivided attention. There are several fine a** zaddies who just made it to the NFL, and now we’ll be semi-stalking them during the season. We kid.

    We spied cutie Alabama baller Rashaan Evans when he hit the carpet at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas for the 2018 NFL Draft. That tailored suit, that bald head and those white teeth did us in.

     photo NFLrashaanevans1.png

    The 21-year-old linebacker comes from a football & well educated family. His father, Alan Evans, played football for Alabama. However, Rashaan wanted to make his own legacy and decided to pick a scholarship with the Crimson Tide over his father’s Auburn Tigers. By the way, his mother Chenavis Evans has four degrees from Auburn.

    Fine and smart genes.

     photo NFLrashaanevans2.png

    Now, he'll be flexing his talents for the Tennessee Titans. He was the 22nd pick overall.

     

     

     

     

    Let us start looking up Tennessee Titants ticket prices...for a friend.

    Another hottie we noticed...

     photo NFLbradleychubb.png

    NC State cutie Bradley Chubb was the #5 overall pick who’s heading to play for the Denver Broncos. He’ll be helping out the defense as a defensive end.

     

     

    Bradley is on his way to Denver right now:

     

     

    Another hottie we noticed...

     photo NFLDenzelWard.png

    Ohio State cornerback Denzel Ward, picked #4 overall, will be taking his talents to the Cleveland Browns. And he's ready to get to work:

     

     

    Also...

     photo NFLsaquan.png

    Penn State running back Saquon Barkley snapped it up with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell after being picked #2 overall by the New York Giants.

    His teammate Odell Beckham Jr. can't wait to get out on the field with him:

     

    Not only did he make it in the NFL, but two days prior he became a first time dad.

     photo saquonbaby.png

    He and his girlfriend Anna Congdonwelcomed a bouncing baby girl, named Jada Clare Barkley, on April 24th. 

    Hmph.

     

     

    Congrats.

    As for the evening's fashions....

     photo NFLlamarjackson.png

    The draftees always love to show out.

    Lamar Jackson of Louisville was Gucci'd down to the shoes. We're not sure why he chose a shirt with UFOs on it, but we love that he's not afraid to play fashion.

    He was picked at #32 overall to play QB for the Balitmore Ravens and he's super optimistic about the upcoming season:

     

     

    Another fashionable hottie on the carpet...

     photo NFLjairealexander2.png

     photo NFLjairealexander.png

    Jaire Alexander of Louisville kept it dapper in a maroon suit with cheetah print loafers. The cornerback was the #18 overall pick and he's headed to Green Bay Packers.

     

    Now, grab your tissues...

     photo NFLshaquemgriffin.png

    There were several inspirational stories told about the rookies headed into the NFL, but Shaquem Griffin’s story had us almost in the ugly cry.

    The UCF linebacker doesn’t have a left hand, yet, he was able to become a standout player for the Knights. He reportedly bench pressed 225lbs at least 20 times during the Combine and then ran the 40-yard dash in 4.38 seconds. Shaquem, who’s brother was picked by the Seahawks in round 3 last year, insists he can go out there and play just as good as any other professional athlete.

    “I don’t see it as a handicap and I have never looked at it that way,” Griffin says. “I hope I am an inspiration for people, to see I can do whatever I want. I haven’t seen anything I couldn’t do. I’m never going to let someone put a label on me.”

    Yes!

    Unfortunately, Shaquem wasn’t picked in the first round as NFL teams are leery about players with any kind of physical issues. However, we feel like someone is going to pick him up. We’re keeping our fingers crossed.

    Another inspiring story we learned...

     photo NFLmarcusdavenport.png

    When Marcus Davenport was born, we doubt his parents were thinking they had a NFL baller on their hands. The UTSA grad was born prematurely and only weighed in at 3lbs.

    TexasFootball.com reports:

    Doctors were forced to deliver him through dry birth.

    “They had to basically pull him out,” his mother, Ronnetta Davenport, said. “And when he came out, he looked like Mike Tyson got a hold of him.”

    The parts of his body that weren’t yellow with jaundice were black and blue with bruises. At just three pounds and 14 ounces, he easily fit inside the palm of either parent’s hands. For the first day and a half of his life, machines breathed for him while his lungs developed. He spent the first 10 days of his life with a tube shoved down his throat, reliant on Ron Davenport to provide valuable, invigorating nutrients through a feeding tube.

    Now, the 6′ 7″, 256 pounds baller is heading to play defensive end for the New Orleans Saints after they scooped him up as the #14 overall pick. Nice!

    This never happened before in NFL Draft history...

     photo NFLtremaineedmondsBROTHER.png

     photo NFLterrelledmondsBROTHER.png

    Tremaine and Terrell Edmunds made history last night as the first brothers to be selected in the same first round NFL Draft. Linebacker Tremaine is going to the Buffalo Bill after he was picked at #16, while his brother/safety Terrell will be going to the Pittsburgh Steelers, picked at #28. They both went to Virginia Tech and are 16 months apart.

    “I honestly don’t know how I’m doing this interview right now because I’m so filled up with joy, first for my brother,” Terrell Edmunds said. “I was so excited for him. … Then hearing my name called, I can’t speak enough for my family.”

    Awww!  At 19 years old, Tremaine became the first teenager drafted since Amobi Okoye in 2007.

    Can you imagine how their parents are feeling right now?!

    By the way, they come from a football family. Their oldest brother, Trey Edmunds, is a running back for the New Orleans Saints. Their dad, Ferrell Edmunds, was a Pro Bowl tight end with the Miami Dolphins.

    “It’s a huge blessing for my family,” Terrell said. “Having all three brothers in the NFL at one time, that’s what we’re really looking forward to.”

    Nice!

    A post shared by TheYBF (@theybf_daily) on

     

    Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier walked out on stage with his wife Michelle at the NFL Draft to announce the team’s pick, Terrell Edmonds. This past December, he was hauled off the field on a stretcher after suffering a serious spinal injury. He promised he would walk again, and here he is. He also said he plans on getting his job back in the NFL.

    We wish him nothing but the best!

    Romeo Miller says Angela Simmons just does something to him every time he sees her. And he’s dishing on the current status of their…”situationship.” Find out what the “EX On The Beach” host tells TheYBF.com about his “connection” with Angela, plus why he’s the ultimate relationship guru inside…

    Romeo Miller and Angela Simmons go waaaaay back.  We’ve been following them since the two were first rumored to be a couple. And we continue to see their dynamic on the WEtv series “Growing Up Hip Hop.” It’s obvious the two have some type of connection, even when they’re both in relationships with other people.

     photo rom3.png

    TheYBF.com caught up with the “EX On The Beach” host to find out what’s really good between him and the new mom. And apparently, it’s kinda hot and heavy. Well, kind of.

     photo rom2.png

    During Coachella Weekend, Angela hopped on Instagram and posted a steamy video of herself flossing in a black bikini while taking a dip in the pool. We know he saw it, so we had to ask what he thought about it.

     

    Chun-Li #FullyDrenched #shifttocoachella

    A post shared by Angela Simmons (@angelasimmons) on

     

    “I suddenly got baby fever for some reason,” Romeo shares with TheYBF.com.” Angela is definitely a MILF. She’s doing her thing.”

    Hmph.

    So, is she BAE or nah?

    "Me and Angela are like reading not one book, not two, but a whole damn trilogy,” he explains. “I think it’s rare in this generation where you have someone where you have such a good connection with and it doesn’t have to be, ‘I’m yours and you’re mine.’ Me and Angela, we get each other, we understand each other. We have amazing chemistry. I can’t see the future, but whatever happens will happen. She’s somebody who gets me, and I get her. Whatever happens will happen.”

    Oh? A relationship does sound promising between the two though, at least from his standpoint.

    Romeo is certainly a charmer and a smooth talker, so it came as no surprise when he says he’s “cool” with ALL his exes. (yeah, he's one of those.) And his reason why makes us crush on him even harder.

    “Honestly, I’m cordial with all my eyes. If somebody was in my life, I have this philosophy that you were in my life for a reason. It may not have meant for you to be there forever, but you were in my life for that season and you have to learn your lesson. The thing is, if you don’t learn your lesson then you have to keep learning it and I feel like that’s where you mess up. So, I’m cordial with any woman who has ever crossed paths with me.”

    So mature.

    With this way of thinking, it proves why all his friends come to him for advice, especially relationship advice. Romeo likes to think of himself as the “New Dr. Phil” and we’re not mad. His outlook on life is A1.

    “Even just growing up in this industry, I just learned that dealing with people a certain way, it goes a long way just to treat everybody with love and respect no matter if they hurt you, no matter if they stabbed you in the back, no matter what they did. I feel as a human we have to make sure we always choose to do the right thing.”

    “I call myself the ‘New Dr. Phil’ because since first grade people would come up to me asking for relationship advice. You can’t give too much energy to the negative. If someone is trying to drain you and they’re bringing negatively, my advice is you just have to keep looking forward. The past is the past for a reason. You get in trouble when you keep playing with fire."

    “Timing is everything too.”

    He said sometimes God will put people in your life in front of you that may be yours, but it may not be yours at that moment. You have to be patient. You may have to build and work harder for it.

    He's not cocky, but he has no problem giving himself a Kanye-pat when the moment calls for it, as we all should, honestly.

    “I want anybody who crosses paths with me to become a better person. I think I make my exes better. Not being cocky, I just feel like that’s our job. Every relationship is to learn how to be a better you and then help that person.”

    Heartbreak is always tough. It’s even worse when it’s from Rihanna.

    "Man, Rihanna broke my heart like 3 times!”

    The “Famous In Love” star tells us meeting Rihanna at the Kid’s Choice Awards is one of his most vivid memories as a kid. Apparently, he had a chance to shoot his shot, but he declined. It happened when he was about 15-16-year-olds and they linked up at a Kid’s Choice afterparty.

    “I’m young, so I really don’t know how to deal with girls yet. I know my name Romeo, but I’m like 15-16,” he shares. Rih asked him if he was going to take her number and he said…no.

    “I’m kind of pissed off.  I was so focused on my career and not chasing girls at that time. Me and Rihanna could have been something. We could have been Double R.”

    Ha!

    Romeo hosts MTV’s “EX On The Beach” on Thursday at 9/8c and on “Growing Up Hip Hop” when the new season premieres May 24th on WEtv.

    CinemaCon, the largest and most important gathering for the worldwide motion picture theater industry, just wrapped up.

    Since her breakout role in Girls Trip, Tiffany Haddish has been killing the game, so it’s no surprise she copped Female Star of Tomorrow Award.

She’s wearing her executive producer hat alongside Will Packer for the upcoming thriller, Breaking In, due in theaters May 11th.

     photo CinemaCon2018CinemaConScreenAchievementBg90ujl4Mgrl_1.jpg

    Oh, and she’s the lead star. She also executive produced Almost Christmas in which she starred in as well. While making her press rounds, Gabby dished on how she managed to wear both the actor and producer hat:

    "We've always had to be that. Half the time, on certain productions if they don't believe in diversity in the hair and makeup department, then we're hair, we're makeup, we're wardrobe. You gotta to make sure not only you know your lines, but everybody else knows their lines. because you want it to be a success.

    So we've been multitasking as talent forever. Now we're being given the opportunity to produce as well. For me it's just another day in the park but I'm also getting paid for it finally. Like Nicki Minaj said, 'I been on!'"

    Facts.

    Kanye West is all about love today after going on a week long Twitter binge that had folks extra bothered. The fact he turned ish into a couple new songs feeds into the PR stunt narrative, especially his new album cover. Get it all inside...

    Folks have been cancelling Yeezus left and right and posting fake obits for the man who used to be known as Kanye "George Bush doesn't like black people" West. That still may be the case even after his new 'love" focused tracks he just dropped.

    It's publicity stunt-tasticness at its finest. We're just shocked so many aren't seeing through what we've seen through since the day he married into the family who re-invented publicity stunt-ery. They do it so well, people actually believe that their (this now includes Kanye) way of thinking is "genius".

    Just in time for his new album and new book to be released, Kanye's back on Twitter. And he's in rare, reckless and problematic form.

    Kanye's gone from praising Trump and black alt-right conservative foolywangery Candace Owens to rocking the red MAGA hat and trolling folks' timelines. He claims he "doesn't know enough" about the party to call himself a conservative, but he's all about "free thinking".

     

    Who's going to tell him supporting a man who literally calls entire races and groups murderers, rapists and "my black" is the opposite of expressing "free thought"?

    Kaye's been exhausting us for days, and now he's putting out more bait for folks to chew on.

     

    . #Kanye #Obamas

    A post shared by TheYBF (@theybf_daily) on

     

    'Ye tried to pop back at all the folks - not just black folks either - who told him he's turning his back on the culture who put him on a pedestal and supporting a man who hates them. He stated President Obama - who once called Kanye a jackass - did nothing for Chicago after being President for 8 years.  He exchanged tweets with conservatives AND Trump about running for office himself and "leading the black community" and more. He did everything but say what HE has done for Chicago himself the last decade he's been one of the kings of the rap game.

     

     

    Celebs, including his wife, are chiming in about #KanyeWest.

    A post shared by TheYBF (@theybf_daily) on

     

    The Chicago native got all the praise from Trump croonies and supporters for "smartening up" to Trump's way of thinking.  He never corrected them about where he stands. Only doubled down on "not following group thought." So Trump is the hill you want to die on, 'Ye?  Let's not do this.

    Now, in addition to announcing a conveniently timed plan to give back to his hometown, he dropped new music late last night to accompany his thirst-driven return to Twitter. Of course. He's been going at it with Hot 97's Ebro Darden after Ebro told the world about his off-air convo with Kanye.  'Ye apparently told the radio host that nobody had his back when he was getting help for opiod addiction and emotional disorders. Maybe it's because him and his Kardashian Klan told the world he was just "exhausted."

    Kanye praising Ebro's rival Charlamagne Tha God wasn't enough revenge, so he responded with a song about "love."  It's mostly gibberish, but we're sure his stans will call it genius. It's called "Lift Yourself," and it has lines like,“poop de scoop whoopity scoop diddy scoop poop."

     

     

    #TI says he’s not giving up on #KanyeWest.

    A post shared by TheYBF (@theybf_daily) on

     

    Today, he put his political arguments with T.I. on wax. T.I. spoke up a few days ago about seeing Kanye. We guess this was why.

    Oh.

     

    #JohnLegend gets it.

    A post shared by TheYBF (@theybf_daily) on

     

    After 'Ye's G.O.O.D. Music bro John Legend gave a polite read to Kanye, the "Jesus Walks" rapper says they're still cool. And he posted this:

     

    Kanye firing most of his employees who don't see his "vision", his managers, his lawyers, and team and hired only full time lawyers because he's no one's "client"), wasn't the oddest thing he's done this week. Neither was him threatening media publications or inviting TMZ over to freestyle for them in order to prove he's not acting "erratically" or fighting with Kris Jenner as rumored.

    Kanye's latest shock-and-awe Twitter announcement had folks shaking their head in "I knew it" type sadness.

    Yep, the rapper says he's going to make Dr. Jan Adams, his late mother Donda West's plastic surgeon who he blamed for her death, his new album cover. Chile...

     

    It's no surprise Yeezy's been harboring unresolved feelings about his mother's death, which is what most people attribute his erratic behavior over the years to. Could this be the signal everyone was on to something?

    DILF Alert! If you don't know up and coming model turned actor Lamon Archey, you're about to be pleasantly surprised...

    We love a good fresh face around these parts, and we just discovered a new one.  He's the newest hot face on "Days of Our Lives" (he plays Eli Grant), and we might have to start acting like we watch soap operas again.  Meet our new (but taken) daytime TV bae Lamon Archey.

    To explain his fineness, he was previously a model.  Then he took his talents and good looks to the soaps.

    Lamon does lunch dates (pictured here) with his daughter, Gaia, so obvi we're enamored.  And yes, in case you were wondering, Gaia's mom and his fiance Mercedes Cornett is blessed with some melanin.

    He was spotted taking his baby girl to Le Petit Four on Sunset Plaza recently, and the daddy-daughter duo is adorbs.

     photo lamon3_zpskrpqf9ep.jpg photo lamon archey2_zpswipojpe9.jpg

    The California native started his career modeling for some top fashion designers - in print and on the runways - including Macy’s, Kohl’s, Giorgio Armani and Dolce and Gabbana. After dipping into starring in a few commercials for Chase, McDonald’s and The Gap, he got his first acting gig that lasted a couple years in 2012 on "The Young and The Restless". 

    Now, he's working on new projects including the movies Engaged, Draw and Starlet all to be released this year.

    By the way, Lamon's got two more kids (for a total of three) with Mercedes, whom he hit the red carpet of the Daytime Emmy Awards festivities with this weekend:

    Baby Bump Watch has ended! Lil Scrappy and Bambi are officially welcoming a baby. More inside…

    We can officially take Bambi and Lil Scrappy off of Baby Bump Watch because it’s clear what’s up. Our prediction was true (as usual).  They’re expecting!

    The “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” stars are gearing up to become parents together and welcome a new life into the world. This will be Bambi’s first child and Scrappy’s 2nd. He shares a daughter, Emani Richardson, with his ex Erica Dixon.

    Sources tell The Jasmine Brand the married couple tried to keep the baby news under wraps until she was far enough along.

    “Bambi hasn’t made many public appearances because she’s starting to show more,” the source revealed.

    Back in 2014, Bambi suffered a miscarriage that played out on “LAHH: ATL.” At first, fans thought she had got an abortion. Once her social media accounts were flooded with criticism, she posted up hospital documentation and pictures of her laid up in a hospital bed to prove she had a miscarriage and not an abortion.

    We first got a hunch that the couple, who secretly tied the knot last summer, was expecting when Scrappy posted a photo of them out for dinner and Bambi’s midsection looked rounder than usual.  She's also been missing in action with new pics on Instagram, posting only older pics.

    Now, they want the world to know their good news.

    Congrats to the couple!

    Time is flying!

    Ciara and Russell Wilson’s daughter Sienna Wilson is already 1-year-old! And to celebrate her first birthday, her parents threw a bash fit for a princess. We weren’t expecting anything less, especially since her middle name is Princess like her mother.

    CiCi shared an adorable shot of baby Sienna wearing a crown sitting in her tulle skirted high chair with ballons surrounding her in which she captioned, "Princess Sienna's 1st Birthday! 4.28.17. Forever one of the best days of my life! #HappyBirthday angel."

    In the shot, we see Sienna’s pink and white three-tiered cake along with a pink and white rose arrangement made into the number 1. Daddy Russell also wished his baby girl a Happy Birthday writing,“1 year ago. Jesus blessed us with you. I love you my sweet SiSi. #HappyBirthday @Ciara”

    Aww!

    And, of course, big brother Future Wilburn was there to celebrate with his baby sis:

    Amber Rose says if you not supporting your bestie the way she supports Blac Chyna, y’all not real friends. Peep pics of the blonde bombshell speak at Chyna’s women empowerment luncheon before shooting her shot at Nicki Minaj. Also, Chy and her 18-year-old boy toy get kissy. Get it all inside…

    Amber Rose keeps a busy schedule with her many projects and endorsement deals. But, she’s never too busy to support her bestie Blac Chyna.

    The 33-year-old stepped out with her son Sebastian Thomaz in L.A. to attend Blac Chyna’s LASHED Ladies Luncheon in L.A. yesterday. One thing we can say about these ladies is that they have each other’s back to no end. They’re always showing up at each other’s events and promote each other’s businesses/projects.

    Despite however you feel about Amber and Chy, it’s nice to see two women in the spotlight encourage and motivate one another.

    For the luncheon, the “Hot To Be A Bad B*tch” author rocked a floral crop top to show off her abs paired with some distressed jeans. Peep the pics here.

    Inside, Amber hugged Chyna when she saw her, but Bash didn't want anything to do with her:

    Tonight’s episode of “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” is going to be an explosive one. Peep all of the upcoming drama, plus grab your tissues because this new Whitney Houston documentary will have you in tears. More inside…

    Things are heating up in the “A!”

    “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” star Tommie Lee keeps some type of drama going in her life. If she’s not fighting with her mother, she’s fighting in the streets and getting locked up. Chick always has something going on and it could be due to her alcohol addiction.

    Since she made her debut on the show, Tommie hasn’t hid the fact she has a problem with drinking. She can be the nicest person, but when she drinks she turns into a different beast. Her “drunk” behavior is starting to cause major problems in her life and tonight we’ll see her try and get a handle on it.

    Oh…and this is going to in the new season as well….

     photo kirkrash.png

    Looks like Rasheeda and Kirk Frost are working on their marriage….or at least seem cool, sitting next to one another. Rasheeda said she wanted to put together a trip to a Dude Ranch where everyone can come together and squash any beef they may have with one of their co-stars. We assume her “beef” with her cheating, make a baby with another chick and try to deny it husband is included.

    However, ish turns left when Louisiana rapper Tokyo Vanity and Dancehall superstar Spice get into a brawl. It is alleged Spice hooked up with Tokyo’s man.

    Peep the trailer below:

 Will Clarke, Andy Mayson, Mike Runagall, Zanne Devine, Rosanne Korenberg and Joe Patrick. It features interviews from her family and friends, including Whitney's godmother/singer Dionne Warwick. Peep the trailer above.

    Christina Milian is heating up the beach in Miami in a white cut-out bathing suit. See her beach babe shots, plus find out why folks are popping off at bi-racial singer Halsey over “white people” hotel shampoo inside…

     

    Christina Milian loves slipping into a bathing suit and hitting the beach, especially in Miami.

    Matter of fact, she’s crushing on Miami so hard, she’s thinking about moving to South Beach, or at least get a spot down there so when she jets to the city she’ll have somewhere to stay.

    “Plotting on ways to make South Beach my second home!,” she captioned on Instagram while hanging out on the beach in a white cut-out Myra Swim swimsuit.

     photo IMG_4331.jpg

     photo IMG_4333.jpg

    If she scoops up a spot, she can lay out on the beach any time she chooses.

     photo IMG_4332.jpg

     photo IMG_4330.jpg

    She normally hits up the beach in Miami with her bestie Karrueche, but Kae in New Orleans filming for a new season of “Claws.” And when she’s not filming, she’s been busy getting to know her new beau, Victor Cruz.

    C-Milli doesn't mind. She brought a few other friends with her during her beach day:

    We noticed her boyfriend Matt Pokora didn't tag along, but maybe the French singer had a gig or something.

    Bi-racial singer Halsey is causing controversy online after calling out hotels for only having “perfumed watered down white people shampoo.”

    The 23-year-old singer — who's dad is African-American and mom is is Italian, Hungarian and Irish — hopped on Twitter to air out her frustrations with hotels who’s toiletries only accommodate white people and alienates people of color.

     

     

     

    White folks started coming for her on Twitter, so she's been popping back:

    Mrs. Crane always seems to pop up with Alex needs her most, or needs her least. We’ve got the "Star" exclusive sneak peek at our new fave on screen mommy-daughter duo - Naomi Campbell & Ryan Destiny - handling the most cringe worthy scenario. 

    Things are getting extra thotty on "Star." Even mom is out of pocket.

    Now that Alex (Ryan Destiny) and Noah (Luke James) are baes in real life - no longer just faking it for the Gram and their chemistry is pretty much everything.

    R. Kelly’s management is speaking out against the #TIMESUP movement after several YBF heavy hitters spoke out in support of the #MUTERKELLY, including Lupita Nyong’o, Ava DuVernay, Kerry Washington, Viola Davis and Shonda Rhimes. More inside…

    The #TIMESUP movement has turned its attention to R. Kelly. And now his camp is responding.

    After Kelly’s lawyer, publicist and longtime assistant cut ties with him, the Women of Color of Time’s Up called for the boycott of the Grammy Award winning singer’s music. Over the years, there have been rumors about R. Kelly being sexually involved with underage women.

    Most recently, a woman came forward claiming R. Kelly gave her herpes and she has pulled the trigger on a lawsuit. Also, he has been accused of having a “sex cult” where several women have come forward sharing their stories on what it was like being one of his “pets.”

    Well, enough is enough.

    The #TIMESUP movement wants to #MUTERKELLY, asking big companies to step in and make the conscious decision to NOT sell, play or share his music. Radio personality Tom Joyner already agreed to stop playing Kelly’s music on the radio when #TIMESUP founder Tarana Burke called into the show last week. Now, they’re asking big names like Apple and Spotify to do the same.

    In an open letter, the Women of Color of Time’s Up write:

    Together, we call on the following corporations and venues with ties to R. Kelly to join us and insist on safety and dignity for women of all kinds:

    • RCA Records: The venerable music label currently produces and distributes R. Kelly’s music.

    • Ticketmaster: The popular ticketing system is currently issuing tickets for R. Kelly’s show May 11.

    • Spotify and Apple Music: The popular streaming platforms are currently monetizing R. Kelly’s music.

    • Greensboro Coliseum Complex: The North Carolina venue is currently hosting an R. Kelly concert May 11.

    The scars of history make certain that we are not interested in persecuting anyone without just cause. With that said, we demand appropriate investigations and inquiries into the allegations of R. Kelly’s abuse made by women of color and their families for over two decades now. And we declare with great vigilance and a united voice to anyone who wants to silence us: Their time is up.

    Kelly’s management team is now responding to the boycott and claims the boycott is nothing more that a modern day “lynching of a black man who has made extraordinary contributions to our culture." They also bashed the movement for not speaking with women who DO support him.

    Several YBF women stepped up to support the #MUTERKELLY movement, including Lupita Nyong’o, Ava DuVernay, Kerry Washington, Viola Davis and Shonda Rhimes. Peep their tweets below: 

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    It should be noted that actress and #TimesUp activist Mira Sorvino also spoke up in defense of #MuteRKelly.  R&B singer John Legend is also standing with women:

     

     

    Interestingly, there's a battle going on with people - both men and women - defending R.Kelly.  And others aren't here for it.

     

     

    As for Kellz....

     

     

    He jetted to Chicago to attend church and visit his "second mom." We guess he needed to find himself after he claims to not understand why cities have been cancelling his shows.

    Peep the clip above.

     

    By the way, we know R. Kelly got evicted from one of his GA homes, which became the center of the sex cult allegations, recently. Get that infor HERE.

    Yeezy Mania continues as Kanye West keeps his presence known on social media ahead of dropping his new album. He met with black conservative Candace Owens over the weekend. Then, rap legend Daz Dillinger put out a “crip alert” against Ye. Get it all inside…

    Kanye West has a new album coming out, so he was quite busy this weekend for his guerilla style promotion. But before we get into what the “genius” was up to this weekend, we must first address this "Crip Alert" rapper Daz Dillinger issued against Kanye.

     photo daz1.png

    Yesterday, Tha Dogg Pound rapper hopped on social media and put a call out to all of Crips in whoop Yeezy’s a** on site. Why? Well, he’s hot with Ye over one of his new lyrics in “Ye Vs The People” (which he released over the weekend) where he apparently compared gang truces to conversations between political parties.

    “Like a gang truce, the first Blood to shake the Crip’s hand,” Yeezy raps on the track.

    Well, Daz wasn’t feeling it and he made it known. He banned Ye from Cali, except Calabasas. He told him he better stay there and he better not catch him anywhere else in Cali or in concert…or else. He said Ye is just like Samuel L. Jackson’s “Uncle Tom” house slave character Stephen in Django.

    “We got a Crip Alert on Kanye,” Daz said in the now deleted video. “You don’t speak on Crip gods n*gga. All the Crips out there, you see that nigga, bang on his a**. F*ck his a** up. F*ck Kanye West up. LBC for life.”

    Sheesh. Check it:

    Now, the Sheriff’s Department is looking into the video to determine if there’s a “prosecutable crime.” In the meantime, Ye has beefed up his security detail in a major way.

    Three bodyguards surrounded the 40-year-old rapper as he stepped out for dinner in LA with a male friend Monday night.

    Before his "beef" with Daz...

     

    Over the weekend, “freethinker” Kanye West met up with black controversial conservative pundit Candace Owens and Charlie Kirk, the 24-year-old founder of Turning Point USA, a right-wing nonprofit conservative youth organization with a mission statement of “enlightening” university students on “true free market values.” Candace is Turning Point USA’s communications director.

    After the meeting, Ye posted up a snapshot of what they chatted about during the meeting. Read it below if you can make sense of it:

     

    Umm...OK. Good luck trying to figure that ish out.

    He also FaceTime'd HOT 97 radio personality Ebro to show him who he was meeting with, but Ebro was not impressed in the least bit:

    Also, Dr. Jan Adams - the surgeon who operated on Kanye's mother before her death -- wrote an open letter in response to Ye saying he was going to use his picture for his album cover. Here's what Dr. Adams said and Yeezy's response below:

     

     

    Before he drops his full LP next month, Ye gave fans a behind-the-scenes look at the making of his track "Ye vs. The People," featuring T.I.:

     

     

    By the way, did y’all listen to that “poopidty scoop scoopidy poop” mess on Ye’s new song “Lift Yourself?” Chile…

    Kanye West gets candid with Power 105’s Charlamagne Tha God in a nearly 2-hour sitdown interview. And they chopped it about EVERYTHING, including his “breakdown,” which he prefers to call a “breakthrough,” how the Paris robbery affected him, going to therapy, his relationship with Jay Z, how he felt when President Barack Obama called him a “jackass” and more. Get it all inside…

    Kanye West gives his first interview since he returned to Twitter recently. He previously teased there was an interview with Power 105 “The Breakfast Club” radio host Charlamagne Tha God, and now it has arrived.

    As we all know, Ye has been pissing folks off left and right over his social media antics where he’s encouraging “free thinking” by aligning himself with Donald Trump, Candace Owens and other conservatives, along with a few Alt-Right folks. However, he says he's doing good these days.

    “I’m feeling good," Kanye said."I think I’m in a stronger place than I ever was. After the breakdown, or as I like to say, the break through.”

    In a nearly 2-hour interview with Charlamagne , the PABLO rapper opens up about how he’s feeling now, physically and mentally. He shares what caused his “breakdown” (although he prefers to call it a breakthrough), and it turns out it was a number of things. Not just exhaustion.

    The fashion maven explains why he doesn’t go to therapy ("I use the world as my therapist"), how his wife’s robbery in Paris affected him and why he decided to return to Twitter ("The thoughts that I’m getting out on Twitter now … I’m not doing it as a form of personal therapy"). He also shares how he feels about his long-time collaborator Virgil Abloh's historic Louis Vuitton deal. 

    Ye also talks about his relationship with his mentor/brother Jay Z (says when Jay and Beyonce didn't come to his wedding he was hurt), why he supports Donald Trump (he wouldn't answer if he feels Trump cares about black people), how President Barack Obama calling him a “jacka**” hurt his feelings (“You know, he never called me to apologize"), the “bravery” of his on-stage rants,  and more.

    Stayed tuned for the full highlights. In the meantime, peep his interview below:

    “When you hear about slavery for 400 years ... for 400 years? That sounds like a choice.” Yes, Kanye West really said this. He also went slam off inside the TMZ newsroom explaining why he got liposuction and how it resulted in him being addicted to drugs. See all of it (if you can stand it) inside…

     

    Kanye West is trying to send us all to an early grave. We get he’s trying to sell an album, but he’s taking this ish too damn far.

    The PABLO rapper made his way to the TMZ newsroom as he continues making media rounds to share all of his “free thinking” ideology. Ye has said some extremely controversial ish over the years, but this comment has us perplexed as hell.

    “When you hear about slavery for 400 years ... for 400 years? That sounds like a choice,” the Chi-town rapper said. “You was there for 400 years and it’s all of y’all?”

    “It’s like we’re mentally in prison,” he continued. “I like the word ‘prison’ because slavery goes too direct to the idea of blacks. It’s like slavery, Holocaust. Holocaust, Jews. Slavery is blacks. So, prison is something that unites us as one race. Blacks and whites being one race. We’re the human race.”

    He then starts yelling to everyone in the room,“Do you feel that I’m feeling ... do you feel that I’m being free and I’m thinking free?”

    Thankfully, writer Van Lathan was in the mix and was NOT afraid to school Kanye on the error in his words.

    “I think what you’re doing right now is actually the absence of thought and the reason why I feel like that is because, Kanye, you’re entitled to your opinion,” Van started off saying.

    He then schooled Ye on what it’s like being a non-famous black man living in America.

    “You’re entitled to believe whatever you want, but there is fact and real world, real life consequence behind everything you just said. And while you are making music and being an artist and living the life that you’ve earned by being a genius, the rest of us in society have to deal with these threats to our lives. We have to deal with the marginalization that has come from the 400 years of slavery that you said for our people was a choice.

    Van said he was “unbelievably hurt by the fact that you have morphed into something, to me, that’s not real.” As sad as it is, we agree. The clip ends with Van telling Yeezy he has to be more responsible and with Ye responding, “I’m sorry I hurt you.”

    Check it:

    Kanye West, you sir are out of line for this slavery comment.

    He wasn't done there either...

    In another clip, the “Heartless” rapper revealed he decided to get cosmetic surgery to keep the blogs from calling him “fat.” However, after his surgery, he said he became addicted to opioids. Once he realized he needed to lay off the drugs, he stopped and then two days later he said that’s when he was admitted to the hospital.

    “I was drugged the f*ck out, bro! I was addicted to opioids. Two days after I get off opioids, I’m *makes car tires screeching noise* I was in the hospital.”

    Then, he gets up, turns around and starts shouting to everyone in the room:

    “Two days before I was in the hospital, I was on opioids. I was addicted to opioids. I had plastic surgery because I was trying to look good for y’all. I got liposuction because I didn’t want y’all to call me fat like y’all did Rob [Kardashian] at the wedding and made him fly home before me and Kim got married, so I got liposuction.”

    Oh wow. Sounds like his wife may have gotten in his head. You would think he wouldn't want to go under the knife for cosmetic surgery being his mother Donda West passed away after a cosmetic procedure.

    Ye said doctors advised him to take two pills a day following his surgery, but soon after he became addicted. After spending over a week in the hospital, he said he was given seven pills to take a day. However, he said he’s NOT taking them.

    “The reason I dropped those tweets and everything because I was drugged the f*ck out, bro. And I’m not drugged out [now]. These pills… they want me to take three of a day. I take one a week maybe, two a week. Y’all had me scared of myself, of my vision. So, I took some pills so I wouldn’t go to the hospital and prove everyone right.

    “We are drugged out!,” he continued yelling. “We are following other people’s opinions. We are controlled by the media and today it all changes!”

    See Yeezy up in arms above.

     

    We KNOW y'all have something to say about this here. SOUND OFF in the comments! Is Ye canceled or nah?
