    Kanye West's "creative" sex filled dreams just keep on coming.  Now, he's including his own sisters-in-law in his fantasies.  Check it all inside...

    The newest song from Kanye, titled "Xtcy" kicks off with moans from Kanye himself (we think) and likely some other folks.  Then, he goes on to tell us all about his fantasies.

    They're exactly what you would expect - porn driven, Kardashian driven, and narcissistic.  Just how he and his wife seem to like things.

    Apparently Kanye, like so many black men apparently, doesn't just have an affinity for his other half Kim Kardashian West, he thinks ecstasy is smashing her four sisters - Kylie, Kendall, Kourtney and Khloe - too.

    The first verse tells you everything you need to know:

    "You got a sister-in-law you'd smash, I got 4 of 'em. 

    Damn, those is the sisters.  You did something unholy to them pictures.

    Damn, you need to be locked up.

    Nah, we need a bigger hot tub."

    We guess the Kardashians' mission to sell sex even works on family. Ugh.

    You can check out the full DJ Clark Kent-released track below.

    By the way, 'Ye's wallet can rest easy.  He just copped lifetime memberships to top porn site Pornhub and its subsite Blacked.com after he name dropped them on Kimmel last week.

    How many of 'Ye's homies are about to ask for his password....

    BONUS: About getting "stumped" by Jimmy Kimmel's question about whether Trump likes black people, Kanye says he simply needed time to think,

    In very sad news, Aretha Franklin's family is reportedly gathering around her to say their final goodbyes. She's reportedly "gravely ill" from cancer. More inside...

    This isn't the type of news we wanted to wake up to this Monday morning.

    Aretha Franklin is reportedly not doing well and her family is asking everyone to send up prayers.

    According to people in Aretha's camp, incuding relatives, the 76-year-old entertainer is "gravely ill" and her family is gathering to say their final goodbyes. Reporter/anchor Evrod Cassimy of WDIV Local 4 in Detroit (Aretha's hometown) first revealed the Queen of Soul was not doing well and asked for prayers.

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Details about her condition weren't immediately released, but new reports claim she has, in fact, been battling cancer.

    TMZ reports:

    A source very close to Aretha and a longtime dear friend tells TMZ he was told a week ago, "Prepare yourself, she's dying." The source adds Aretha was down to 86 pounds and her health was failing. The source says 2 weeks ago everyone in Aretha's circle was told "she could go any time."

    Another source -- someone who has been close to Aretha for decades -- tells TMZ she has been battling cancer.

    Franklin, who is 76, has been in poor health over the last few years.

     photo aretha2.png

    It's reported the Grammy Award winner was diagnosed with cancer in 2010. However, the "Respect" singer denied she had pancreatic cancer in 2011. We're told by sources close to her camp that she allegedly had a surgery to temporarily "cure" her and extend her life.  The cancer reportedly recently returned.

    Her final public performance was in Philadelphia in August 2017. The last time she hit the stage was in November 2017 for the Elton John AIDS Foundation in NYC (above).

    Throughout her career, The Queen of Soul blessed us all with her vocals, cranking out classics like "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman" (1968), "Day Dreaming" (1972), "Jump to It" (1982), "Freeway of Love" (1985), and "A Rose Is Still A Rose," (1998), just to name a few. She has scored 18 Grammys, including one Lifetime Achievement, she's the first woman to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and she has the third-most Grammy Awards for any female artist in history.

    Last year, Aretha declared she was retiring after the release of her new album.

    Missy Elliott and Ciara took to Twitter to send out some love and prayers to Aretha Franklin and her family:

     

     

     

     

    Prayers up for the Queen of Soul!

    Ava DuVernay is taking us behind-the-scenes on the set of her upcoming "Central Park Five" Netflix series. Peep the pics and videos, plus get the deets on Tyra Banks' new TV takeover inside...

    After giving us an in-depth look at the crocked prison system in her 13th documentary, Ava DuVernay is currently working on a limited Netflix miniseries about the "Central Park Five" and we're all the way here for it. It's a story that needs to be told - the right way.

    They've finished casting the young men at the center of the drama and they're now filming the series in NYC.

    Based on a true story, the series will chronicle the notorious case of five black teenagers from Harlem - Antron McCray, Kevin Richardson, Yusef Salaam, Raymond Santana and Korey Wise - who were convicted of a rape they did NOT commit.

     photo centralparkfive2.png

    According to Deadline, the series will span from the spring of 1989, when each were first questioned about the incident, to 2014 when they were exonerated and a settlement was reached with the city of New York. At the time, Donald Trump was a major player in the media, claiming the teens were guilty and should be held to the highest punishment of the law. Hmph.

    Below is a breakdown of the leading men who will bring the story to life (via Variety):

    Chris Chalk will play the adult Salaam, while Freddy Miyares and Justin Cunningham will play the adult Santana and the adult Richardson, respectively. Together, they will star alongside previously announced Jharrel Jerome and Jovan Adepo. Adepo will play the adult McCray, while Jerome will portray both the adult and young Wise. Ethan Herisse (above)will play the young Salaam, Marquis Rodriguez will play the young Santana, Caleel Harris will play the young McCray, and Asante Blackk will play the young Richardson.

    The newly announced cast will join previously announced cast members Michael K. Williams, Niecy Nash, Storm Reid, Aunjanue Ellis, Vera Farmiga, John Leguizamo, Felicity Huffman, Kylie Bunbury, Marsha Stephanie Blake, Jharrel Jerome and Jovan Adepo.

    Ava will work her magic as the writer and director for the four-part series in addition to executive producing. Oprah Winfrey will serve as an executive producer via her Harpo Films, along with Jeff Skoll and Jonathan King via Participant Media, and Jane Rosenthal and Berry Welsh from Tribeca Productions.

    Who's ready to have the REAL story told about what really happened to these five young men almost 30 years ago? We are. It will reportedly premiere in 2019.

    In the meantime, check out some pictures and videos from the set below:

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    This is going to be good. Anything Ava touches turns into gold and we're interested in learning how these young men soldiered through such a traumatic situation.

    Steph Curry is giving up a lot of cash to a help a golfer's wife who's battling cancer and to the family of slain teen Nia Wilson. Get those deets, plus soak in little sis Yara Shahidi's Hollywood Reporter cover and find out what she said about changing the world inside...

    Some professional athletes are just that, professional athletes. Then, there are some professional athletes who prove why they're MORE than just entertainment. Most of them aren't just shutting up and dribbling a ball up and down the basketball court.

    When Golden State Warriors baller (and avid golfer) Steph Curry heard about golfer Scott Harrington having to leave the Ellie Mae Classic golf tournament - a tournament he was participating in - he knew he had to do something to help.

    After competing in the Ellie Mae Classic golf tournament over the weekend (and coming in last place), the NBA superstar announced that he's donating $25,000 to the longtime Web Tour pro Scott Harrington and his wife Jenn Harrington's GoFundMe account. The account was created to help the couple pay for Jenn's medical expenses and the cost of living. Ellie Mae will also make a $15,000 donation to the couple's GoFundMe as well.

    Check it:

     

    Curry's high-profile donation encouraged others to donate to the cause. There are several comments on their GoFundMe account that say Steph is the reason they're donating.

    Scott and his wife Jenn hopped on Twitter to thank Steph (and others) for the hefty donation:

     

     

     

    At the time of this post, the couple has raised $105,465 of $150,000 goal in just one month.

    And before he donated to that cause...

     

     

    The Warriors all-star player helped raise over $21,000 for the family of Nia Wilson, the teenager who was murdered by a white man in a knife attack at an Oakland BART station last month.

    Before tip off of the SC30 Select Basketball Showcase in San Francisco, Steph, who coached a team against his brother/NBA player Seth Curry, took center stage and encouraged everyone streaming the game to make a donation, with all proceeds being given to the Wilson family. Donations could be given via Facebook.

    Some of Nia's family members were in attendance including, Ansar Mohammed and Letifah Wilson, the father and sister of Nia. Letifah was with her sister on the day of the attack and she also suffered stab wounds.

    "I'm sure everybody is aware of the tragedy, the loss we've had in the Bay Area recently, with the life of Nia Wilson," Curry addressed the crowd. It was a senseless tragedy that should not have happened. We want to use this game to dedicate to your family, to show how much we appreciate you guys for fighting through this loss," he continued.

    As of the time of this post, $21,395 was raised. If you'd like to still donate, click HERE.

    Shoutout to Steph Curry, who welcomed his third child (a boy) last month, for lending a generous helping hand.

    On the magazine front...

    By now you know, Yara Shahidi has been crowned as one of this generation's most "woke" actresses. And rightfully so. The 18-year-old is well aware on social issues and injustices that are going on around her and she's not shy to speak out about them.

    Now, the "Grown-ish" actress is detailing how she plans to make a difference using her platform. She's been big on promoting teens who just meet the 18-year-old threshold to VOTE via her Eighteen x 18 initiative. Not only is she informing and educating teens about presidential elections, but she's also focused on midterms as well.

    "My passion really stemmed from having gone through the 2016 election, where myself and many of my peers were unable to vote," she told The Hollywood Reporter. "A lot of them went with their parents to the polls, but there was that feeling of being lost. Like, 'What can we do to contribute to our sociopolitical landscape?'"

    Shahidi famously had a registration booth at her own voter-themed 18th birthday party (yes, really), held in February at Los Angeles' Underground Museum (the guest list included Reese Witherspoon's daughter, Ava Phillippe, rapper Kodie Shane, actress Peyton List and several of her Grown-ish and Black-ish co-stars). And now she's putting the finishing touches on Eighteen x 18's first national summit, which will take place next month in Los Angeles, along with salons and other voter registration events around the country.

    What can't she do?!

    Her partner on the initiative, Michael Skolnik, who's worked with several young activists in his career, insists he's not overreaching when he says, "If Yara wants to be president one day, she will be." Her TV boss, Kenya Barris, tends to agree, though he's hopeful his young star will get to experience life first. "Sometimes I worry about her," says the father of six, "because she's been so uber-successful at everything that she's attempted and I want her to leave room for being a kid."

    You can read her full interview here.

    By the way, Yara joins the bevy of black women landing magazine covers for the month of September, includingBeyonce,Rihanna, Issa Rae, her TV mom Tracee Ellis Ross and tons more. Peep her spread below:

    The "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star just announced she is gearing up to release her own beauty line. Yep, she wants to jump into the beauty/skincare game. And she will do so via her Bedroom Kandi brand.

    The KK Beauty line, dubbed Kandi Koated (like the name of her sex talk series), will feature skincare, hair care, and more products, starting with their Body & Beauty Oil, available now.

     

    Right now, fans can get their hands on Kandi Koated makeup via her Bedroom Kandi consultants. If you didn't know, Kandi runs an adult sex toy line called Bedroom Kandi and it's doing well. So yeah, she has the marketing and branding checked off the list.

    The Grammy Award winning singer-songwriter announced on Instagram that she's jumping in the beauty game:

     

     

    Peep the behind-the-scenes video from her new photoshoot below:

    After confirming she will NOT be returning to the "Real Housewives of Atlanta", Sheree Whitfield is dishing a little tea about her relationship with her jailed boyfriend Tyrone Gilliams.

    Fans were shocked to learn the fitness maven would ever consider entertaining a relationship with someone incarcerated, but, here we are. She has been "dating" Tyrone for the last two years and revealed things began getting serious between them “about a year ago.”

    If you didn't know, Tyrone is currently serving a 10 year prison sentence for allegedly stealing $5 million in a security wire fraud scheme.

    While she claims Tyrone is the man who currently holds the key to her heart, she said she has NO desire to marry a man behind bars and that she's not settling down quite yet.

    “I mean he would love to marry me right now, but I am not marrying someone who is in prison," she told US Weekly. "I am keeping my options open."

    So why is she even entertaining a man in prison? Because, chemistry.

    “I meet people all the time and the crazy thing is, no one has been able to hold my attention or grab it," she continued. "No one has been able to get in my mind and my head. He is still around, but I say at the same time, I love him and I have said it before, if he comes home and I am still available and everything is great, what he is doing and what he says he is going to do, then absolutely I can see a future.”

    So there's still hope. Tyrone may get his custom built man cave afterall.

    While she will not be appearing on "RHOA" any longer, Sheree said she has a slew of new projects in the works. She also talked more in depth about why she's not coming back for another season of "RHOA." She wasn't feeling being offered to come back as a "friend of the show" when she starred in the franchise's first four seasons holding a peach. In 2015, she came back as a friend of the show and then was promoted to a housewife for seasons 9 & 10.

    “I am working on some great things right now and I can’t spend 13 years on one show, I need to evolve and I feel like I am evolving,” she shared. “I am just not interested in being a puppet on a show for season 11. I feel like there are a lot of puppets on there and a lot of people were willing to be a puppet, that has just never been me or my character.”

    The shade! She wouldn't be Sheree if she didn't throw any.

    “I have so much going on,” she continued, "The [clothing] line will be available in September to see. … My T-shirt line should launch next week. … Also, I am working on a rug line. You saw me finish Chateau Sheree and design it, now I am working on a rug line, which I am super excited about and I am very intrigued by beauty and making beautiful things. I am also flipping my first home. I got an older home, gutting it and making something beautiful. I am also working on a new show, everything happens for a reason.”

    We can't lie, Chateau Sheree is STUNNING and if she can do that again, she may have a future in desinging homes. Or, at least being the person who oversees the designs.

    Nicki Minaj and Safaree Samuels are going AT IT on Twitter over ghostwriting rumors, a fake hairline, a stabbing and MUCH more. Sip the tea inside...

    Nicki Minaj and her ex-fiancee Safareee Samuels BOTH had time today.

    The NYC raptress is currently on the promo trail for her recently released QUEEN album and stopped by HOT 97 to chop it up with Funkmaster Flex. Nicki and Flex were at each other's necks at one point in time. Now, they have seemingly squashed their beef, so she came on the show to talk about a number of things.

    Chick came to set the record straight about those longtime rumors that she doesn't write her own raps...or that someone helps her write her raps. Since she and Safaree broke up, there's been talk that he was the one helping the "Chun-Li" rapper with her wordplay. But, Nicki wants everyone to know she writes ALL of her rhymes and always has.

    "How dare you bite the hand that feeds you?" she asked while sharing a story about how she had to be the one to step up and pay their rent one time. She said Safaree, his mother and his sister called her a "crazy b*tch" for wanting to pursue her rap career. Nicki said Safaree should be grateful she "pushed her pen" so that he can be allowed to enjoy the finer things in life.

    "When we started the group, we all laughed at him, at Safaree. He couldn't rap," she said during the interview. Damn.

    The "Barbie Tingz" rapper also accused him of stealing her credit cards to pay for prostitutes. Oh, and she also said she and Meek had been fooling around for years before they made it official. Oh? So that means she was cheating on Safaree? Damn.

    Peep a few highlights below:

     

     

    A post shared by TheYBF (@theybf_daily) on

     

    ZERO chill.

    Well, the interview was enough to get "Love & Hip Hop" star Safaree Samuels riled up and then he started going IN on Twitter. He brought up how Nicki allegedly stabbed him and he had to allegedly lie to police that he had attempted suicide to keep them from locking her up.

    In his tweets, he also said Nicki has a lot of hate that she needs to let go and even accused her of using HIM as publicity to help her first week QUEEN album sales. Bloop!

    Check out his tweets below:

     photo safareetweet4.png

     photo safareetweet3.png

     photo safareetweet1.png

    The Harajuku Barbie had some tea to spill of her own. She claims she paid $10,000 for Safaree's manufactured hairline! Lordt. She even threw Tyga in the mix. And she wasn't done there.

    Nicki said Safaree came crawling back to her after her ex-boyfriend Meek Mill was released from prison. She also said that Safaree hit her and Meek up asking them to try and get his d*ck pic back from someone. Chile....

    Read the tweets from the bottom up:

    Yikes! Who knew hairlines cost $10K?!

    Power 105's Angela Yee joined in on the shade-fest after her co-host Charlamagne Tha God asked Nicki how much she paid for Safaree's hairline:

     photo angelayeetygashade.png

    You can check out her full interview with Flex below:

    Did anyone else notice she mentioned Meek's name quite a lot during this interview or is it just us?

    First week sales for QUEEN will be in on Friday. FYI.

    There's more...

     photo nickicardi1.png

    Last night, Nicki got into it with Power 105's DJ Self, who also stars on "Love & Hip Hop," on social media after he said Cardi B's Invasion of Privacy album was better than QUEEN. He made the comment AFTER she left his radio show and that ticked her off, so she popped off on Twitter. She said DJ Self was trash talking Cardi behind her back in an effort to get her to like him.

     photo nickicardi3.png

     photo nickicardi2.png

     photo nickicardi4.png

    That line about the "Love & Hip Hop" checks struck a nerve with new mom Jessica Dime, so she hopped on Twitter to respond:

     

     

     

     

    And then Nicki responded:

     

     

    Petty levels are at an all-time high today. Sheesh.

    By the way, she also released the visuals to her track "Ganja Burns." Take a look below:

    Iggy Azalea has been showing her ass lately. Literally. And it's problematic. Let's discuss inside...

    Everybody wants to be all about what black folks are known for (or at least gain something from the culture) until it's really time to be black.  Being black-adjacent often times pays off more than actually being black.

    Case In Point: Iggy Azalea. Folks have had a lot to say about her recently after her ex, Nick Young, called her out for her thirst shenanigans.

    Iggy came to America from Australia, surgically enhanced her body, started using an "accent" when rapping (which she also caught heat for) and, at some point in time, was praised to the highest of heavens by folks in the rap industry. Don't even debate us.

    She was ushered in by rapper T.I., but they have since parted ways. However, that hasn't stopped her any.

    There's also that runaway slave lyric she threw on her track "D.R.U.G.S." where she referred to herself as a SLAVE MASTER a few years ago.

    Girl...

    Then, there was that time A Tribe Called Quest’s Q-Tip took Iggy to history class, schooling her on the origins of Hip Hop and why many people have a problem with the way she's using black culture and the rap culture simply to make money.

    Now, here we are and Iggy is still up to her same ways.

    If you take a look at her Instagram account, there are countless photos of Iggy posing with her whole injected a** out. If it looks good, why not flaunt it, right?  She clearly paid a hell of a lot to get the same body features many women of color are naturally born with yet often told is "ghetto."

    We'd subscribe to that school of thought if someone had something else to offer as well and if black women didn't seem to be the only group crucified for doing so. See: Tweets directed at K.Michelle, every black IG model and the like.

     photo iggybooty3.png

     photo iggybooty2.png

     photo iggybooty5.png

     photo iggybooty4.png

    Hot pics, but it's almost like a "pick me" commercial where she's showing the goods in hopes of nabbing a suitor. This tweet perfectly sums up the thoughts that come to mind when seeing Iggy's half naked body all over social media:

     

     

     

    Could one argue that black women show their a**** on social media as well? Yep. The difference is, Iggy gets praised for showing her ASSets on social media, while black women get demonized for it. Hereinlies the problematic ish with Iggy, who never takes the opportunity to point out her privilege.  She does find time to cry on Twitter about being "attacked" though.

     photo Screen Shot 2018-08-14 at 7.20.36 PM_zpsq9cjzzrx.png photo Screen Shot 2018-08-14 at 7.21.18 PM_zpsxwfljhc5.png

    Is she yet another a white woman who loves black culture, but only when it's convenient for her. Where are all the tweets about social injustice? Where are the consistent tweets about police brutality? What has she done to better the rap community?

    Remember when Azealia Banks called Iggy out for remaining silent about issues like what happened to Mike Brown in Ferguson and what happened to Eric Garner in NYC? After Banks called her out, Iggy said that movement "has nothing to do with her" and alluded to her tour and self-promotion being more important to promote on her social media accounts.

    Is it the public's business what she does with her IG account?  If she was a non-celeb, no.  But when you use said account and other platforms to market yourself to the public for their attention and coins, it's fair to say you're inviting opinions.

    When is enough, enough?

    Omarosa vs. Trump 2018 is almost like a re-run episode of "Celebrity Apprentice." The latest inside...

     

    We're honestly not here for either one of them.  But we are here for tea spillage and epic reads of any kind.

    Omarosa has a new tell-all book to sell. And to do so, the former White House aide is spilling all types of corruption tea about the Trump administration. Almost sounds like an episode of Trump's show "Celebrity Apprentice" right?

    They'll say it's fake news. And we can't even debate them on that as Omarosa doesn't have a good track record when it comes to telling the truth. However, she's going around dropping receipts to anyone who'll listen.

    Former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman has been doing interviews on her book press tour making claims she heard an audiotape of Trump using the N-word during production of "The Apprentice." In fact, she said there are multiple tapes.

    She still decided to work for that dude and threaten folks who ddn't hop on the bandwagon though.

    The former reality star has also released several audio recordings that she took during her time as a Trump assistant at the White House.  From the Situation Room.

    We can't.

    On the TODAY show, Omarosa talked about a recording that featured herself and Trump on the phone where he said he had no idea she had been fired. She raised questions about who's actually running the country if the president had no idea of her firing. FYI: Trump’s White House chief of staff, retired Gen. John Kelly, was the one who gave her the pink slip in December 2017.

    "Who's running the country? When Donald Trump said that THEY run a big operation, who is they?," she asked.

    She was asked if she think the president lies often she said, "Absolutely." Omarosa said she knew he was a liar, but she didn't think he would lie to the country. She revealed Trump knew about the hacked Democratic emails obtained by WikiLeaks before they were released. No surprise there.

    "I thought that he would take his oath of office seriously," she said. Really, girl? OK.

    Omarosa said there are a lot of "corrupt things" going on in the White House and she's going to blow the whistle on it all. No sh*t Sherlock.

    She said she felt she had to record meetings and discussions because she wanted proof to back up everything she's saying about the Trump administration.

    Watch her feisty interview with "TODAY" show anchor Savannah Gutherie below:

     

     

    Trump also took to Twitter to address all of the controversy surrounding Omarosa's tell-all book and the recordings she's releasing. He called her a "dog" and a "lowlife," amongst other things:

     

     

    He tweeted, "When you give a crazed, crying lowlife a break, and give her a job at the White House, I guess it just didn’t work out. Good work by General Kelly for quickly firing that dog!"

    He also denied ever using the N-word:

     

     

    White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders defended Trump, per usual, when folks said Trump was using coded racist language against a black woman again.  She said he was just "voicing frustration":

     

     

     

     

    "Voicing frustration?" -- Umm...OK, then. Had Obama...nevermind.

    As for recording Trump, she said she doesn't think she broke any laws recording Trump, but his reelection campaign doesn't think so.

    Trump's re-election campaign is reportedly filing an arbitration action against Omarosa for alleging breach of a secrecy agreement.

    The AP reports:

    A campaign aide tells The Associated Press that it is filing the claim with the America Arbitration Association in New York, claiming her explosive new book and media tour breached her 2016 confidentiality agreement with the campaign. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the person was not authorized to speak publicly on the matter.

    Manigault Newman has acknowledged signing a confidentiality agreement with the campaign in 2016. She wrote in her book that after being fired from the White House in December 2017 was offered a $15,000 per month position with the Trump re-election effort in exchange for signing a new confidentiality agreement. She says she declined that offer.

    The former White House aide said she "will NOT be silenced" by Trump or his administration/campaign.

    “I’m not going to be bullied by Donald Trump,” she told The Associated Press hours after the president’s campaign announced it was filing an arbitration action against her.

    Omarosa insisted Trump has “absolutely no respect” for women or African-Americans. Haven't we been saying this from the beginning...or...??

    While Omarosa has BEEN canceled and is extremely problematic, Trump definitely shouldn't be in the Oval Office tweeting that someone, specifically a black woman, is a dog.

    The Women's March issued a statement to call Trump out for his toxic targeting of black women.“Once again, Donald Trump is showing the world that he is an abuser, levying more racist and sexist attacks on Black women. Women are not dogs. We are not bitches. We are people," they wrote in a statement.

    Thoughts?

    And then former Chief White House photographer Pete Souza brings the classy, yet comical shade:

    Nicki Minaj is still making rounds on her QUEEN press tour. Find out everything she said about Remy Ma, Cardi B, Nas and Tekashi 6ix9ine during her interview on TIDAL's CRWN inside...

    Nicki Minaj is making waves in the limelight after recently releasing her fourth studio album QUEEN last week. The release came as a surprise to fans as Nicki kept pushing the album back due to sample clearance issues.

     

    Nicki recorded a track titled "Sorry" that created with her once rumored beau Nas, however, it didn't make the cut due to the fact that she was not able to clear the sample. Last night, Nicki, drenched in Burberry from head-to-toe, sat down for an interview with TIDAL's Elliott Wilson where she explained why the track got axed from the album.

    The Grammy nominated rapper revealed her team wasn't able to get in contact with singer-songwriter Tracy Chapman to have the sample cleared.

    "We didn’t know Tracy Chapman wrote that song because that’s a vintage dancehall song,” she said.

    Nicki ultimately decided that one track wouldn't make or break the album, so she released it without it.

    The conversation then highlighted her rap beef with fellow NYC rapper Remy Ma.

    "I didn't engage in a rap beef. I didn't engage." the "Chun-Li" rapper said with a smile on her face.

    Then, she started spitting lyrics from her collaboration track "Make Love" with Gucci Mane, throwing hella shade, and her fans joined in.

    "Oooohhh, oh you the qu-e-e-the queen of this here?/One platinum plaque, album flopped, bitch, where? (bitch, where?)/Hahaha, ahhhhh/I took two bars off just to laugh/You see, silly rabbit, to be the queen of rap/You gotta sell records, you gotta get plaques/S, plural like the S on my chest/Now sit your dumbass down/You got an F on your test"

     photo nickicrown2.png

    As for her "relationship" with Cardi B, the "Barbie Tingz" rapper explained she and Bardi had a conversation after the Met Gala where they seemingly squashed their beef. However, Nicki said ish just keeps happening.

    "We had a great talk. And we promised each other that we wouldn't feed into bullsh*t anymore. However, it's always some shit happening. There's always some shit being said and being done and I just don't understand. I have no reason to lie. I still have the text messages in my phone," she said.

    Nicki said she doesn't hold grudges, but if folks keep coming for her, she's prepared.

    “If a person keeps on offending you, you might have to address it at some point. If that time comes, I'm prepared.”

    There's that. However, on QUEEN she did fire shots at strippers (an old profession of Cardi's), so we wouldn't be surprised if Bardi pops back.

     

     

    A post shared by Barbie® (@nickiminaj) on

     

    As far as any rap competition, Nicki said people uses the word competition "loosely."

    "Sometimes, I don't know what people mean when they say that. I think it's insulting to say I didn't have competition all these years because there's always been great female rappers in the industry and it's not right to say that."

    "Having a big push from a label, does not make you great...and to me, doesn't mean that you're my competition or you're not my competition."

    Was that shade...or? Hmm... Especially because she, herself, had a major machine behind her (Cash Money Records) as well.

    As for working with controversial rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine on their "FEFE" track, she said she didn't choose to work with him because he was popular. She chose to work with him because of his "talent."

    “Labels do not care about talent anymore,” she said. “It’s about popularity," she said. "The reason ["FEFE"] drew my interest was not because 6ix9ine was popular, it’s because it reminded me of ‘Slumber Party’ by Gucci Mane.”

    The Young Money rapper made sure to steer clear about addressing his recent legal trouble after he pleaded guilty to the use of a child in a sexual performance.

    Peep a few highlights from her interview below:

    After yesterday's Twitter storm that Nicki Minaj started, folks are still chiming in on the hairline talk and more. Get the latest from Tyga, Safaree and Jessica Dime inside...

     

    After setting the Internet on fire yesterday when she BLASTED her ex-fiance Safaree (while dragging Tyga in the mix), folks are still addressing the madness.

    Yesterday, Nicki revealed her former labelmate had undergone hairline surgery while trying to bash Safaree. Poor Tyga. He got caught up in the crossfire between two former lovers. She said she shouldn't have dropped the $10K it cost to have Safaree's hairline fixed.

    However, he's poking fun (and seemingly trying to make some coins) in the process at the expense of his fake hairline:

     photo tygatweet1.png

    HA!

    Speaking of coins, Safaree made a quick up. He tweeted that he made $30,000 yesterday by referring people to the doctor who performed his hairline procedure. He also received a $500K book deal and an endorsement offer. Check it:

    Also, "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star Jessica Dime jumped in the mix when Nicki shaded DJ Self for collecting "LAHH" checks. After popping off on Nicki via Twitter, the Head Barb responded saying:

     

     

    Well, Dime had some more time and said she's ready to throw down with Nicki, any time, anywhere:

    Jazz pianist Robert Glasper is coming for Lauryn Hill and his accusations are shocking. Find out all he said, plus get the details about Stevie Wonder going to visit Aretha Franklin in hospice care inside...

    Yikes! Lauryn Hill is getting put on FULL blast, if what's being said is true.

    Jazz pianist/producer Robert Glasper is dishing on L. Boogie and he doesn't have too many great things to say about her.

    For starters, he claims the multi-Grammy Award winner STOLE credit for songs on her classic album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. And he's making these claims right before the 20th anniversary of the critically acclaimed LP. The album will celebrate its 20th anniversary on August 25th.

    Not only that, he claims she's horrible to work with and treats her band like ish - like firing touring band members shortly before shows or cutting their pay on a whim.

    The 3-time Grammy winning pianist/producer said L. Boogie stole ALL of his friends' music during an interview with Houston's KBXX "The Mad Hatta Morning Show."

    “Miseducation was made by great musicians and producers that I know, personally.... So you got a big hand off of music that you didn’t even write. OK, you steal music,” he said referring to L. Boogie.

    Then he went into details:

    "She took the credit for making the classic album. Those songs were written by other people, and they did not get their credit. She likes to take credit so she can become this super person. If you’re a super person and you’re that talented... do it!”

    There seems to be some truth to what he's saying. In 2001, Lauryn settled a case out of court after a group of musicians - who worked on Miseducation - sued her. They made claims she “used their songs and production skills, but failed to properly credit them for the work.” Oop.

    He wasn't done there. He also detailed how she mistreated her band members while on tour:

    "She couldn’t tune her guitar in rehearsal. We were in rehearsal, she had my boy Benji tune her guitar. She would come into rehearsal and say, “Benji, guitar.” And just hold it out like this. And he would run and tune her guitar.

    "Every day she comes in and changes the show, changes what she wants to do. Completely. The last rehearsal, she doesn’t show up. Her manager comes in and says, “Lauryn’s not really feeling the way you guys have been learning the music, so we’re gonna cut your pay in half.” The last rehearsal. The day before the show. “We’re gonna cut your pay in half.” First of all, we weren’t getting paid that much anyway, but understand she’s getting half-a-million dollars. So, seriously? You’re gonna take these five musicians and cut their pay in half?"

    Wow! If true, that's insane. Y'all know how people are about their coins.

    He said she hasn't put in enough work to be pulling diva antics:

    "I’ve met Stevie Wonder and hung out with Stevie Wonder. I’ve met Quincy Jones and hung out with Quincy Jones. I’ve met Herbie Hancock; hung out with Herbie Hancock. If those three people can be cool, Lauryn Hill should be able to be cool. You haven’t done enough to be the way you are. You just have not. The one thing you did that was great, you didn’t do."

    Oop!

    Check it at the 27-minute mark:

    Speaking of Stevie...

     photo stevearetha1.png

    Stevie Wonder made it to Detroit to see singing legend Aretha Franklin, who's currently receiving hospice care. It's reported she's battling pancreatic cancer and doesn't have much longer to live.

    A source revealed to CNN's Don Lemon that the "Superstition" singer joined several others who have been going by to visit the 76-year-old singer, including her ex-husband Glynn Turman. It's reported Rev. Jesse Jackson will visit her soon as well.

    Vivica A. Fox and Tasha Smith took a break from filming "Empire" for some fun. See flicks of the ladies keeping a low-profile, plus deets about their on-screen sister Taraji P. Henson's new foundation to battle mental health in the black community. More inside...

    When Hollywood vets link up!

    Nothing like a quick girls' session to let your hair down in between "Empire" takes. Vivica A. Fox and Tasha Smith took a break from filming scenes for a new season of "Empire" for a day out in Chicago recently.

     photo Walking 3.jpg

    Keeping a low-profile (as low as one can get in an oversized hat, oversized shades and a loud print), the YBF actresses were spotted incognito as they strolled the streets of downtown Chicago. They were headed to the trendy Viceroy Hotel for appetizers and white wine. Our kind of perfect summer evening out.

     photo Walking2.jpg

    While it was a relaxing evening, the ladies still found time to go over their lines for the hit FOX series. Aunt Viv and Tasha will return for season 5 to reprise their roles as Candace and Carol, Cookie Lyon's (played by Taraji P. Henson) older and younger sister, respectively.

    By the way, Aunt Viv is gearing up to launch her first talk show, "Face The Truth," produced by Dr. Phil. It's scheduled to premiere September 10th.

    "Empire" will return for another round of drama and antics on September 26th at 8/7c on FOX.  Collect all the coins, Viv!

    Speaking of Taraji...

     photo tarajimentalhealth.png

    Taraji P. Henson is paying it forward double time.

    The "Empire" star just launched the Boris Lawrence Henson Foundation in honor of her late father in an effort to help eliminate the stigma surrounding mental health in the black community.

    The goal of the foundation is to provide scholarships to black college-bound students majoring in mental health. Also, the foundation will offer health services to youth in urban communities and schools to help lower the school-to-prison pipeline rate.

    “I named the organization after my father because of his complete and unconditional love for me; his unabashed, unashamed ability to tell the truth, even if it hurt; and his strength to push through his own battles with mental health issues,” the recently engaged actress said.

    In her Around The Way Girl memoir, the YBF actress opened up about her relationship with her father. He died in 2006 at the age of 58 after battling liver cancer. Now, she's on a mission to help black people who face trauma on a daily simply due to the color of their skin.

    “My dad fought in the Vietnam War for our country, returned broken, and received little to no physical and emotional support,” she said. “I stand now in his absence, committed to offering support to African Americans who face trauma daily, simply because they are black.”

    The Hidden Figures star will be celebrating the launch of the foundation with a fundraising event, dubbed "Taraji's Boutique of Hope," set to go down September 22nd in LA. Cute name.

    Funds raised at the event will go to help BLHF provide resources to battle mental health issues in urban schools. The best part is that BLHF will team up with school districts to help to provide mental health therapists, social workers and counselors to African-American children in need and other nonprofit organizations that offer mental health wellness programs as well.

    This is exactly what's needed.

    In other news...

     

     

    Taraji may have missed the girls' evening out with her on-screen sisters, but she found time to spend with her fiance/former NFL star Kelvin Hayden. The couple, who got engaged in May, was all smiles after turning up at Beyonce and Jay Z's "On The Run II" tour stop in Chi-town a few days ago.

    By the way...

    Taraji will be starring in a new Will Packer comedy titled, What Men Want. She'll play an ambitious sports agent who was struggling to make progress until she magically got the ability to read the minds of men and uses her new perception to advance her career. It also stars Tracy Morgan, Aldis Hodge,Tamala Jones and more.

    It's a reimagining of the 2000 film, What Women Want. Peep the trailer above.

    The flick is set to hit theaters January 11, 2019.

    Another day, another bullet or eleven being shot near Tekashi 69.  Now 50's got to get the strap...

    Rappers 50 Cent and Tekashi 69 have been hanging tough for several months.  The two NY natives have apparently been working on a project together, and were busy shooting a music video last night in Brooklyn. 

    "The shooting happened near the Greenpoint waterfront on Noble Street at about 9:30 p.m. Tuesday," according to what police to PIX 11 News. 

    TMZ claims folks on the scene saw the shooter:

    Witnesses say someone in a white Porsche with New Jersey license plates fired at least 11 shots during filming in Brooklyn Tuesday at around 10:30 PM. Based on the shell casings it appears the shooter use a 9 mm semi-automatic weapon.

    It's unclear if the bullets were meant for either rapper, but sources say they don't believe the rappers were targeted.  Both stay in some mess with other rappers or gangs, so it surely wouldn't surprise anyone if they were, in fact, targeted after all.  TMZ says police sources aren't sure it wasn't targeted either:

    Tekashi and 50 were on set at the time of the shooting, along with Casanova and Uncle Murda. Sources connected to the situation believe the shooter wasn't targeting any of the rappers, but law enforcement sources aren't so sure.

    Thankfully, no one was injured.  No arrests have been made yet.

    Almost immediately after the story hit today, Tekashi took to his Instagram to go AWF (again) on "all these p***y rappers."

    He's asking for rappers like YG and others he tells to "suck his d***" to come at him. These dudes never learn, even after getting kidnapped, pistol whipped, robbed and hospitalized just weeks prior.

    A former Louis Vuitton model has been found guilty of murdering a rival model. Get those deets, plus why Shaunie O'Neal believes burglars used social media to target her family inside...

    When jealously strikes.

    British model George Koh (left) was convicted of murdering fellow male model Harry Uzoka (right).

    The fatal encounter happened when 24-year-old Koh and 25-year-old Uzoka met up after arranging a fight via social media. However, their social media quarl didn't end there...it resulted in a fatal stabbing.

    Koh and Uzoka arranged to meet up in London to fight via social media. And here's surveillance video of some of what went down once they crossed paths in January.

    Uzoka was chased down by Koh and his friends before he was stabbed three times with a knife. He reportedly died on a sidewalk in front of his house.

    Prosecutors painted a picture to the jury with claims that Koh was jealous of Uzoka after he booked big modeling gigs with GQ and Zara, following his signing to Premier Model Management. Prosecutors also said Uzoka accused Koh of trying to copy him, and that Koh claimed to have slept with Uzoka’s girlfriend. Lordt.

    Uzoka was good friends with model Jourdan Dunn, who posted a tribute to him on social media following his death earlier this year:

    In addition to Koh being convicted, his two friends - Jonathan Okigbo (24) and Merse Dikanda (24) - were also found guilty. Dikanda, who brought a machete to the fight, was found guilty of murder and Okigbo was found guilty of manslaughter, according to the BBC.

    They will all be sentenced on September 21st.

    In other unfortunate news...

    Shaunie O'Neal had to lay down the law on her kids about what they post on social media. They had recent breakin at their LA home and the "Basketball Wives" honcho believes it has everything to do with what they're posting on social media.

    Apparently, the burglar has been keeping tabs on Shaunie and her kids' social media because he only attempts to break in once he realizes no one is home. Oh yes, this man has tried to break into their home more than once.

    "I'm assuming though that they are watching social media because the first time he tried we were all in Vegas," Shaunie told TMZ.

    Here's video surveillance of the break in:

    "That was our family meeting last night -- no more posting current situations. We can't do that," she continued. "If someone really wants to get in your house they have that moment to do that. It's how safe do you really feel?"

    Glad no one was hurt. Just another reminder that we all have to be careful what we share on social media.

    In very sad news, it's being reported Aretha Franklin has passed away at the age of 76 after battling cancer. Deets inside...

    It's with very heavy hearts we share Aretha Franklin has reportedly died this morning at her home in Detroit, according to her publicist. She was 76-years-old.

     

     

    A few days ago, it was reported The Queen of Soul was"gravely ill" and her family and friends had gathered by her bedside to say their final goodbyes, including singer Stevie Wonder. She was recently moved to hospice care in her home in her hometown of Detroit.

    It was then confirmed Aretha was battling pancreatic cancer.

    The Grammy Award winner was reportedly diagnosed with cancer in 2010. However, the "Respect" singer denied she had pancreatic cancer in 2011. We're told by sources close to her camp that she allegedly had a surgery to temporarily "cure" her and extend her life. The cancer reportedly recently returned.

    Last year, Aretha declared she was retiring after the release of her new album.

    Her final public performance was in Philadelphia in August 2017. The last time she hit the stage was in November 2017 for the Elton John AIDS Foundation in NYC (atop).

    Throughout her career, The Queen of Soul blessed us all with her vocals, cranking out classics like "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman" (1968), "Day Dreaming" (1972), "Jump to It" (1982), "Freeway of Love" (1985), and "A Rose Is Still A Rose," (1998), just to name a few. She has scored 18 Grammys, including one Lifetime Achievement, she's the first woman to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and she has the third-most Grammy Awards for any female artist in history.

    This is a monumental loss to the music industry and to the world as Aretha's voice, presence and talent were and always will be iconic.

    Our condolences and prayers go out to her family, friends and fans. May the QUEEN rest in power.

    Jesse Williams tried to get his $50K/month child support lowered, but NOPE. Get those deets, plus find out what "Diff'rent Strokes" star Todd Bridges has to say about the new restraining order his ex-girlfriend just filed inside...

    Jesse Williams’ divorce from his estranged wife Aryn Drake-Lee is costing him a pretty penny, so he attempted to have it changed.

    The "Grey's Anatomy" star tried to get a new trial after he was ordered to pay $50,000/month in child support to his ex-wife. However, it didn't work in his favor.

    According to The Blast, the judge presiding over Jesse & Aryn's divorce denied the actor's motion for a new trail on August 14th. Both parties were able to argue their cases during a hearing and by the end, the judge decided to side with Aryn.

    You'll recall, a judge ordered Jesse to pay his ex-wife $50K in spousal support for their young children, Maceo and Sadie Williams. He also had to cough up $50K in spousal support in addition to paying $60,000 for her legal fees.

    The couple called it quits in April 2017 after being married for five years and together for 13 years. By the way, the 37-year-old actor, who celebrated a birthday earlier this month, is gearing up to star in a new horror film titled, Random Acts of Violence.

    Folks are losing it!

    "Diff'rent Strokes" alum Todd Bridges is being accused by his ex-girlfriend of threatening her on several occasions. Not only that, she also claims he used weapons like a crossbow and a taser to threaten her life. Yikes.

    The woman, named Tiffany Wolf, was reportedly granted a temporary restraining order against the "Facts of Life" alum after revealing how he has been torturing her and her pets. They met on a dating site and she said on the second date, he pulled out a taser and zapped it near her face. Say what now?

    The Blast breaks down the details:

    According to Wolf, she met Bridges on a dating site and she claims that during their second date, he “took out taser and zapped it several times inches from my face.”

    Apparently undeterred by that incident, Wolf continued to see Bridges and claims the first time she spent the night at his house, he showed her a crossbow and “quickly removed the gun & bullets under his pillow.” She also claims that Bridges told her he “had beaten up homeless people trying to break into his house.”

    A few weeks later, Wolf claims Bridges pointed the crossbow at her and then two weeks later “pulled gun on dog because he thought someone was breaking in.”

    She also claims he told her that “he had shot someone before & did not know whether they lived or died.”

    Wolf says she ended things in May and claims beginning in July, he started harassing her on Twitter. She claims to have received harassing messages from Bridges and also claims his best friend started tweeting about her.

    As a result, Wolf says she broke out in shingles and has gone on anti-anxiety meds.

    “I am in fear of my life because I know Todd is mentally unstable and has weapons,” she writes, “including a crossbow he says he has so he can ‘sneak up on people’ and a small loaded gun.”

    It gets worse...

    Bridges was also ordered to stay 100 yards away from Wolf’s cat and dog because she fears “he might harm them in retaliation for my police report and TRO request.”

    If that sounds familiar, that’s because Bridges claimed the same thing in his TRO request against a different woman last week.

    As The Blast first reported, Todd Bridges claims his porn star ex-girlfriend, Melissa Hill, has been harassing him since they split up. Bridges believes Hill “will attack my dog if she’s not able to get to me. She could easily throw poisoned food over my fence.”

    Bridges and Wolf have a hearing set for later this month.

    A source close to Todd Bridges tells The Blast he has not seen Wolf in months and he believes she is working with Hill to harass him. We’re told while he does own a crossbow (it’s hanging up in his house) he denies ever using it to threaten her.

    This story is INSANE.  But Todd wants everyone to know the story just doesn't add up. He hopped on Twitter to attempt to clear up the whole restraining order fiasco:

    Trina Braxton isn't feeling how the Braxtons are with each other these days.  We've got an exclusive sneak peek at sisters' messy return tonight on "BFV".

    A LOT has gone down since the spring.  The Braxton sisters are back from a mid-season break tonight on "Braxton Family Values," and Trina's breaking down in tears over just how far apart they've grown.

    The st time we saw almost all the sisters together was at Tamar's son Logan's 5th birthday party at Disney World in June:

    It seems that was a one-off occasion because Trina says they barely speak or see each other anymore.  And it's tearing her part.  From Tamar's divorce and separation drama to Traci's new music to Toni planning her wedding with Birdman, they all have their own ish going on.  And Trina just wants to open up a second Bar Chix with all her sisters.

    Terry Crews is being accused of cyberstalking and defamation in a $1 million lawsuit. Meanwhile, there are updates on Mariah Carey's situation with her ex-manager Stella Bulochnikov suing her and The Game having to cough up dough to Viacom. Get it all inside...

    After testifying in front of Congress and continuing his lawsuit against WME over alleged sexual assault by an agent, the "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" actor is now on the receiving end of a lawsuit.

    According to Deadline, Terry is being sued for $1 million by his former friend/social media manager Darwin Hall. The plaintiff claims he's owed more that $1 million in wages and reimbursements for work he did on Terry's social media accounts and his website. He's totally 6,000 hours of work he wasn't paid for.

    Hall is accusing the 50-year-old actor for breach of contract, cyberbullying, and harassment. He reportedly is also suing for an "implied and disputed discrimination move against a member of the LGBTQ community in a business dust-up over an app." In the suit, Hall said Terry encouraged his fans to harass him with threats after the actor blasted him on social media.

    The suit reads: “This Complaint is brought by Plaintiff Darwin Hall seeking payment for services rendered and costs incurred by Plaintiff in connection with his services to Defendants, and for Defendants’ tortious acts in response,” says the jury-seeking multi-claim filing made in L.A. Superior Court yesterday by the owner of Milwaukee, WI-based Symbolic Web Media, LLC. “As a direct and proximate result of Defendants’ breach of the agreements, Plaintiffs have suffered damages in an amount to be proven at trial, and exceeding $1,000,000,” the complaint adds, with claims of emotional distress plus “several harrowing weeks of despicable online harassment and cyberstalking” launched off posts by Crews in late 2017.

    Deadline reports:

    Things are far from static in the 17-page plus extensive exhibits filing (read it here), where Hall details a digital “professional relationship” with his “long time friend” and then just-retired NFL player Crews that started in 1999 to “enhance” the latter’s online presence. The paperwork also mentions helping Crews “obtain additional followers for his social media accounts,” a statement that is a bit odd as social media didn’t exist in the sunset of the 20th century.

    Hmmm....that social media tidbit is very interesting. How was he helping Terry gain followers when social media wasn't a thing back then?

    Nonetheless, that misstep aside, the filing adds that the duo apparently agreed on a price of $55 per hour for the online duties and Hall went to work putting together websites for Crews. Those efforts included working on Crews’ Facebook page and more up until 2017 it seems. Efforts that Hall and his lawyers at Beverly Hills’ studio accounting specializing Johnson & Johnson LLP assert aided Crews to transition from sports to be able to “unquestionably” make it in the TV and film business – which is when the payments were supposed to kick in.

    Yet, despite supposedly putting in over 6,000 hours working for Crews, Hall says he was only paid $28,479.06 by the Deadpool 2 actor over the decades – which makes it sound like he needs an accountant as well as attorneys. Then, with the August 14 filing suddenly taking a very ugly turn to claim Crews essentially freaked out in mid-2013 over Hall working for an LGBT-identifying client on what the plaintiff calls a “dating app that the client had created for professional women,” things went toxic between Symbolic Web Media and Crews’ loan-out company of Crews Arts Ltd – which is in theory how things ended up in the court system.

    Last year, Terry seemingly addressed the situation, but he never named Hall, his company, nor did he mention anything about the LGBTQ community. Peep the tweets:

    We told y'all Mariah Carey’s former manager Stella Bulochnikov (Stopler) was planning to sue the singer. And now, ish just got real.

    Stella has been trying to serve her former Grammy Award winning client with a summons, but wasn't able to...until now. It's reported Stella tried several times to serve MiMi, but “the doorman would not call up to the apartment saying that he knew Ms. Carey was not home.” After the third attempt, the server left the documents with the doorman.

    Stella, who appeared on Mariah's reality show, said she believes she's owed commissions for the millions and millions of dollars she helped MiMi earn while working together. She's estimating up to $100 million in three years. Damn!

    “When I started representing Mariah in 2015, I made her over $27 million. The following year, in 2016, I made her $35 million. In 2017, I made her roughly $40 million. I had secured over $50 million in deals through our joint company for 2018,” Stella told RadarOnline.

    “I have given Mariah every opportunity to make good on this, and I have done everything that I can to preserve her integrity. This lawsuit is neither frivolous, nor baseless. It is about money that is owed to me for services that were rendered, as well as massive deals that were in place through our joint company.”

    The Blast reports Stella is also planning to sue Roc Nation:

    Bulochnikov is also prepping to sue Roc Nation because she believes they interfered with her joint venture with Mariah — which was going to produce movies and TV shows — which was worth $50 million. Part of that lawsuit will also include allegations of canceling and then re-booking of shows to cut out Stella’s commission.

    Mariah's ex-manager filed a summons in NYC court in April, stating she was going to sue for breach of contract and a violation of the Fair Employment and Housing Act. At the time, she also claims when Mariah was naked around her that she would do “sexual things” in her presence. Right after Stella filed that summons, Mariah spoke out and revealed she has been battling with bipolar disorder. She likely shared her disorder because she knew Stella was going to start talking.

    This is getting ugly.

    In other legal woes...

    Remember when we told you Viacom filed paperwork against the game (real name Jayceon Taylor) to pay courts costs in the rapper's $20 million lawsuit? Well, he just took another "L."

    You'll recall, The Game lost the $20 million lawsuit he launched against Viacom after an alleged sexual assault that went down during filming of his former dating show, "She Got Game." A judge dismissed the suit in June. He launched the lawsuit because he felt Viacom should have been liable for the $7.1 million judgement he was hit with by the alleged victim, Prisicilla Rainey.

    But, the judge didn't see it that way. And the system isn't on his side again. The west coast rapper has been ordered to pay a total of $32,528.80 to reimburse the company for the money spent on legal fees. Viacom was seeking $35,729.50, so he got a super small break in the ruling.
