NBA vet and "Inside The NBA" host Kevin Garnett just found himself single again. Deets on the surprise split inside...
Brandi Padilla, wife of future Hall of Famer Kevin Garnett, filed divorce papers in in Los Angeles yesterday. They got married in the state of California in 2004.
While the divorce docs don't specifiy the exact reason for the split, Brandi cites irreconcilible differences. And it looks like this may be headed toward a nasty custody battle, seeing that Brandi is requesting physical custody of both of their daughters as well as spousal support.
The Blast reports:
The couple has two daughters, 10-year-old Kapri and 5-year-old Kavalli, and according to the petition, Brandi wants physical custody of both kids with Garnett getting visitation. She is requesting joint legal custody.
Brandi also lists the date of separation as “TBD,” and says the reason for the split is due to irreconcilable differences.
She’s seeking spousal support, and requesting that the court terminate Garnett’s ability to collect support.
The two, who are both 42 and dated for several years before getting married, would have celebrated their 14th wedding anniversary this month.
We've got a round up of candids, including Karrueche Tran and Victor Cruz,Ne-Yo& Crystal Smith, Thomas Q. Jones and Blac Chyna. See what they were up to inside...
New love always puts a glow on the happy in love couple.
Karrueche Tran and Victor Cruz took their relationship to another level by making their red carpet debut together. The couple starting dating around Thanksgiving last year. Since then, they've been all boo'd up on Instagram while on BAEcay and have hit up a few parties together, but this is the first time they've made an appearance on an official red carpet as a couple.
Last night, the "Claws" actress stepped out with her NFL beau to attend the Sports Illustrated Fashionable 50 list event that went down in West Hollywood. And as you can see, these two are smitten.
Victor is a fashion lover and Kae started as an assistant to a celeb stylist, so it was no surprise to see them hit up a fashion event.
We are HERE for it honey.
It's a good luck for them both.
On daytime television...
Kae appeared on "The Talk" to chat about beating actor Deon Cole on a recent episode of “Lip Sync Battle." She chose the perfect song too. The "Claws" actress performed "The Talk" co-host Eve’s hit song “Let Me Blow Your Mind.”
“That was very nerve-wracking because I’ve never performed on a stage," Kae told the ladies about her performance. "I am not musically talented at all. I can’t sing, I can’t dance. I got two left feet.”
“You look good. Your swag was everything. It was great," Eve said weighing in on the performance.
“I had to channel my inner-Eve!," Kae replied.
Peep the clip above.
Catch Kae in a new episode of "Claws" this Sunday at 9/8c on TNT.
Also at the SI event...
New York Giants baller Odell Beckham Jr. and his pink fanny pack snapped it up in front of his cover.
And actor Taye Diggs was in the mix, rocking a floral shirt and a Gucci man bag.
Watch everyone in action below:
Back to the couples...
New baby! Life is good.
New parents again Ne-Yo and Crystal Smith left the kiddies behind for soe grown time out on the town. The smiling couple was spotted outside Craigs restaurant after chowing down on some good eats.
The R&B crooner and his wife welcomed their 2nd child together (Ne-Yo's 4th) back in June and named him Roman Alexander-Raj Smith. The couple tied the knot in February 2016 and welcomed their first child together, Prince Shaffer Chimere Smith Jr., a month later.
Congrats again to the family!
In celebs give back news, the "World of Dance" judge recently did a good deed by helping a homeless student, Max Johnson, become a software engineer.
According to Black Enterprise:
Johnson had a rough upbringing, being shuttled between Nigeria and the streets of Camden, New Jersey. In addition to his external environment, Johnson battled autoimmune deficiency illnesses that impacted both his mobility and the way his brain functioned. After attempting to go to college, Johnson quickly found that it wasn’t a fit for him.
When he came across the Holberton School he decided to give it a shot, knowing that he would not have to pay tuition unless he was hired as a software engineer. Although this was a great catalyst for his entry, Johnson did not have enough money saved up to afford a place in San Francisco, which resulted in him sleeping in his car.
When the school found out, they turned to Scality to help raise funds to secure Johnson a place to live. School trustee and investor Ne-Yo heard about the situation and personally took an interest in Johnson’s story and success.
Johnson has since landed a new job as a software engineer at J. Crew in New York City.
Oh, hey zaddy!
NFLer-turned-actor Thomas Q. Jones is currently on the promo trail for the new season of "Luke Cage" that just dropped on Netflix. He stars as Darius Jones/Comanche in the hit Marvel series. And he kills it.
The hottie stopped by AOL Build to chat about his role in the new season.
Peep his full interview below:
On the party scene...
Blac Chyna stepped out for the first time since her boyfriend/ex-boyfriend drama on social media.
The LASH Boutique owner served up summertime vibes in a bronze satin plunging neckline Fashion Nova wrap dress to party it up at DailyMailTV's summer party at LA's hottest new bar and lounge TomTom.
As she made her way down the carpet, she stopped to snap it up with the Daily Mail's own Alicia Quarles.
As for her love life, we're not sure what's going on.
First it was reported she broke up with 18-year-old aspiring rapper YBN Almighty Jay and was currently dating 19-year-old boxer Devin Haney. However, not too long after news broke that she was dating the boxer, she hopped on Instagram and posted a picture of YBN Almighty with the caption, "Fuck, I'm in love. Thanks @ybnalmightyjay."
So, who knows what the mom-of-two is doing. And at this point, do we still care?
Wondering what Teyana Taylor and Iman Shumpert's first threesome was like? The couple just dropped all the juicy deets...
Married couple Teyana Taylor and Iman Shumpert returned to Power 105's "The Breakfast Club" to chop it up about her K.T.S.E. album and the extended delay.
Tey's "3Way" track had the Internet buzzing because she opened up about her sex life in a major way. On the record, she sings about engaging in threesomes with her husband. Why did she decide to share this with the world?
"I decided to do '3Way' because I just felt like after hearing VII [her debut album] and shit like that, all of our love songs are starting to kind of sound alike. And I just wanted to take it up a notch as far as my lyrical content," she explained.
The couple opened up what their first experience was like. And if we could have been a fly on the wall...
Teyana admitted to bringing up the idea of having a threesome. And, by the way, she says this experience with her husband was her first ever experience with a girl, despite rumors she's been a longtime lesbian.
Tey apparently pulled a fast one on him their first time. The NBA baller said he was blindsided.
"It's just what she did was...the stunt she pulled...it was very left field. I didn't expect it. We had a great day. We already had something we had going on. We already in the hotel and then this n*gga [Teyana] walks out and then comes back and I'm like...? It was just random."
When asked what he did next, he stopped talking because he felt uncomfortable giving details since Teyana's mother was rightthere in the studio. Ha!
"I am Dora the Explorer and I got poor Diago here with me," she joked.
If you're down for the TMI: She also revealed the third person often is most focused on Teyana, and she doesn't allow Iman to "finish" on anybody but her.
The "Hit The Floor" star said she does whatever she wants to do and she didn't have a threesome with her husband to keep him. She didn't do it to "save her marriage." She said the "10 girls" that were mad need to mind their own business and let her do her.
"I don't do anything sexual to keep my man. The sex is crazy regardless. So, it ain't nothing about sharing a n*gga. Don't compare my marriage to yours. I'm very happy where I am. I don't do anything of this sort to keep my man," she explained.
Since the song dropped, they said women have been trying really hard to get their attention. However, this isn't something they're doing on a regular.
"This ain't no everyday thing. It's a SONG. It's a fantasy she created on a record," Iman explained.
And when they're done, the chick isn't staying around to hang out.
"It wasn't no kiki'n [afterwards]. We wasn't sitting there watching the 'Teyana & Iman' show. We wasn't sitting there watching 'Hit The Floor.' You got to go baby," Tey explained.
Teyana shared how after the threesome, they went out to the club with the chicl. When the night was over, the girl thought she was coming back to their hotel, but that wasn't happening. Bloop.
Oh, and she made it clear her husband is NOT eating anyone else's box. They explained it's more so about Iman watching Teyana with a woman versus him screwing another chick. By the way, Iman kept stopping to apologize to Teyana's mom. Ha!
The 27-year-old mom offered up advice to women who may be contemplating having a threesome with their man.
"Don't do anything you don't want to do. Don't do a threesome to keep yo n*gga," she said.
In the interview, Teyana also chopped it up about what she didn't like about her album, why she loved the longer version better and more.

"This is as important as my first album," he said in an interview with Billboard last June. "That’s the mark I want to make and that’s how I’m coming into it. I had this great career to stand on and all this work I’ve done, but let’s strip all of that away and focus on what I’m about to do right now."
Peep the new video above.

“Lost Boy Electric”

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is speaking out about his feud with Tyrese and he says he's not interested in squashing their "beef," which he called one-sided. Find out what else he said about his former friend inside...
It doesn't sound like Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Tyrese will let bygones be bygones.
The Rock is currently on the promo trail for his new movie Skyscrapper. He made a stop in the clubhouse to chop it up with Andy Cohen on "Watch What Happens Live" where he opened up about his strained friendship with his Fast & Furious co-star Tyrese.
In the interview, the wrestler-turned-actor said he has not spoke to Ty since their online feud took over social media. You'll recall, Ty was BIG MAD that The Rock agreed to do his own Fast & Furious spin-off and he let the world know exactly how he felt about it on social media. He said the whole situation is very disappointing and that their "feud" was totally one-sided.
“We haven’t talked at all,” The Rock explained after a caller asked him if he had spoken to his co-star since their feud last year. “That whole thing with Tyrese, it was pretty disappointing because I’ve been friends with Tyrese for a very long time. And, you know, I always feel like a beef requires two people to actually jump in it, and it was really one-sided and he had voiced his opinion a lot on social media.”
The 46-year-old continued: "Apparently, he was going through some stuff too in his personal life. We haven't talked and I don't see where we would, and to me, there's no need to have a conversation."
Yeah, Ty was going through it at the time dealing with a nasty custody battle with his ex-wife Norma Mitchell Gibson over their 11-year-old daughter, Shayla.
However, The Rock said at this point, he's over it...and Tyrese.
“To me, there’s no need to have a conversation,” The Rock added.
It's interesting because Ty said he squashed his beef with The Rock after having a heart-to-heart with one of the actor's associates. However, these two still haven't talked it out.
As of the time of this post, Tyrese has not responded.
In another segment, The Rock said his spin-off will help bring "more freshness and longevity" to the Fast & Furious franchise and said he was "not quite sure" whether he'll appear in the 9th film.
Hear what he said about Idris Elba's character being the main villian in his Fast & Furious spin-off below:
All of the Fast & Furious drama seemed to have started when The Rock called an unnamed co-star "chicken sh*t," "unprofessional," and "candy a**" on social media. Fans assumed he was firing shots at his co-star Vin Diesel.
The Baywatch actor was asked what was the most unprofessional behavior he witnessed from Vin on set and if he would ever film a scene with him ever again, he pleaded the fifth.
Peep the clip below:
The Rock also dished on "tension" between himself and fellow WWE star John Cena.
"I had left and he had done a series of interviews and I just felt ... somebody had referenced me and said 'Is Rock ever come back?" and he was saying, 'I'm not quite too sure,' and I didn't like how he said it and it stuck with me," The Rock said. "Years later when I went back, I talked to Vince McMahon and we thought what if we took that and created this thing and I said perfect. Once it was all done, like all silly beef like that, it was all cool."
"I think we squashed that," he added. "In a matter of fact, John is going to star in one of my movies that I'm producing. He's doing great, done great in his transition and really wants to work hard."
Peep the clip below:
A Colordao woman found her family through Ancestry.com and then live tweeted her journey to meeting her mother and siblings. Now, she wants to help others do the same. Read the touching story inside...
Social media and technology are connecting us more and more like never before.
A Colorado woman named Albreanna Watson began a live thread on Twitter to share her journey of finding her biological mother and siblings.
Albreanna was adopted as a baby, but has been on her own since the age of 17 after her adoptive mother died. She had a "closed adoption," so she knew nothing about her biological family.
However, technology stepped in to help her out. She registered with Ancestry.com to take a DNA test in hopes of finding out about her ethnic background. Later, she was contacted by her half-brother who took the same test and made a match.
I found my biological family. I’m a daughter. I’m a sister. I’m an aunt. I’m a granddaughter. Bitch I’m a relative!!! A thread...

She soon discovered she has two half-brothers and one-half sister. And she didn't waste any time hopping on FaceTime to call them up. That's when they decided to meet in Atlanta. They wanted to link up to surprise their mother.

Read the full thread here.
After sharing her journey on Twitter, she received over 10 Million views in less than 24 hours. She also received tens of thousands of messages from people from all over the world who shared their own personal journeys and reached out asking for her assistance in helping them find their biological family members. So, she has launched a GoFundMe to raise money to help other people find their families like she did.
She's looking to raise $50,000 to go towards DNA testing, travel expenses and more. She wrote:
I have created #AlbreannaFindMe which allows people to share their stories with me. I want to unite people with their families as well as provide encouragement and a strong support system through the entire process.
The funds raised will go toward the execution of this effort of helping people locate their family members. This includes: research, travel expenses, DNA testing, advertisement which will continue to grow the platform necessary for people who want their stories heard around the world.
This is a very emotional process and I do not want a lack of finances to be the reason why people are not able to fulfill their wish of finding their families so I am asking for assistance in this endeavor to help spread love and support for those who need it!
You can donate here.
Shoutout to Albreanna for wanting to help others for such an incredible journey. We wish her nothing but the best!

Serena Williams' return to Wimbledon didn't go how we all wanted. Nonetheless, she's STILL the QUEEN of Tennis. And that's not up for debate. Peep pics from the match and her supporters inside...
There's NO denying Serena Williams' incredible strength and unbelievable athleticism.
10.5 months after giving birth to her baby girl Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., the 36-year-old athlete made her return to Wimbledon in an effort to win a historic 24th Grand Slam title.
Rena copped her 23rd Grand Slam Title after defeating her big sister Venus Williams at the 2017 Australian Open while pregnant. She has the most major titles in the Open era, sweeping past Steffi Graf. Margaret Court currently holds the all-time record with 24 Grand Slam singles titles and Rena’s right on her tail.
The tennis superstar was up against German player Angelique Kerber for her last match to clinch the trophy. Unfortunately, Rena fell short and Angelique took home her first Wimbledon championship, in a 6-3, 6-3 victory in today's final. Ugh. We must admit, this was a hard one to swallow. She was SO close!
With more than 20 years of slaying the tennis world, Rena's spot as the greatest is already signed, sealed and delivered. Period.
Just her playing in this match was a feat in itself. She literally almost died from birth complications after the birth of her daughter. Now look at her. It's been less than a year and she's back on the tennis court fighting till the end.
She is and will forever be the Queen of Tennis.
After the match, Rena fought back tears as she dedicated her match to all the mothers out there:
"I was really happy to get this far. For all the moms out there, I was playing for you today"

The Wests came together to see North West hit the runway in a fashion show. But before they could get inside, her little brother Saint West had a whole meltdown outside. Flicks inside...
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West put on a family front with their kiddies North & Saint West to kick off their YBF Weekend. On Friday, the West made their way to a fashion show that Nori was set to walk in. And look at her outfit. The 5-year-old served up all types of kiddie looks in her floral dress topped with a multi-colored fur vest. While the day was all about Nori, her little brother Saint West was NOT feeling it AT all.
Daddy Ye held baby Saint as he cried his eyes out. It looks like Saint was going off based on the way Yeezy is carrying him. Aww!
Don't cry Saint!
Nori looked equally over it as well.
And we can't forget about Baby Chicago. Her mom shared a cute video on Snap:
Early this morning, Kanye had some thoughts he wanted to share so he hopped on Twitter with his Trump-like rhetoric. He shared how he wants to be referred to as since he believes journalists are being classist and elitist. Peep the tweets:
Music is an art form. When reporters call me “the singer,” the rapper" or even the "pop star" there’s an air of condescension and patronization. Those kinds of journalist are acting like they’re better than us.
— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) July 15, 2018
It’s just another example of elitism and classism. If you read Prince or Michael’s Wikipedia their title is recording artist
Moving forward anyone working in music should be referred to as a recording artist

Karrueche Tran opens up about her body image struggles in the newest issue of PAPER magazine. Find out what she said, plus peep pics of Kae and Elise Neal working the carpet at the Beautycon Festival in L.A. inside...
As the world's obsession with Hollywood grows, it seems some actors and actresses will go to the ends of the earth to look their best at all times. As we pick apart our own bodies, we often times look to celebs as the blueprint of physical perfection.
Making it in Hollywood means you have to look a certain way to keep working. And then there's pressure to stay looking that way at all times. Karrueche Tran knows a thing or two about it. The "Claws" actress opens up to PAPER magazine about her insecurities and how she felt pressured to have what society calls the "ideal" body.
"I used to think I had to be thick and have big boobs," she admitted. "I thought about getting my boobs done, but I was like one: I don't know how my body's going to react to that, and two: why am I changing who I am because of other peoples' comments? I can represent other girls out there and make them feel confident, which is hard in this world where everyone just wants to be thicc."
The "Claws" actress, styling in several Arkan Zakharov ensembles for the spread, said she hopes she can help other girls who are shaped like her to feel confident in their skin no matter what.
"We as a people need to understand society's thought process of what beauty is: a slim waist, a fat booty, thick thighs, big boobs," she told the magazine. "Not everyone has that. That's not average at all, most of the girls who look like that are buying it. It's wrong for these young girls who grow up with this message and think they have to look a certain way."
Along with tackling her own real world issues, she's also using her platform to speak out about certain issues. "Claws" does a good job at addressing discrimination and politics in a way that's equally digestible, entertaining and, above all, impactful. In one episode, Kae' character Virginia is faced with an unplanned pregnancy. She ultimately chooses abortion - even in the face of pro-life protesters - and she recevied tons of backlash from it.
"That was the writers' decision to have that in the story and I'm glad they pushed for that," Kae shared. "Another character says in that scene, 'You guys only care about these babies when they're in the womb, but once they're out in the world you guys don't care about them.' And so it's exactly like what we see in our news today. They want to control our rights and our bodies, but then you don't give a f*ck about these kids who are being taken from their families."
Where's the lie?
You can read her full interview here.
On the L.A. scene....
Kae continues to keep it hot on the carpet.
Fresh from making her red carpet debut with her boyfriend Victor Cruz, the 30-year-old stepped out to attend the Beautycon Festival LA held at the Los Angeles Convention Center yesterday.

Jamie would star as the death row inmate Michael's character is defending, according to Variety.
We're here for it.

It's Tiny Harris birthday! And to celebrate, her husband T.I. laced her with some lavish gifts.
The Down South rapper copped her a souped up black on black Mercedes Benz with cranberry seats along with several Christian Louboutin bags in the back seat. And Tiny instantly fell in love with the gifts.
"Thank you so much Mr. Harris @troubleman31 for showing up on MY ACTUAL birthday & showing out!," she captioned on Instagram with a video of her receiving her new ride. "I really really love this car & all the other nice gifts & I just wanted to tell u how thankful I am. Regardless of whatever, you have done more for me & showed me more love than most will ever have a man to do/give in a lifetime & I appreciate you for that! By the way I’m having an amazing birthday! Thank you to everyone who made this day a special one!! #CancerSeason #17yrsWorth"
"What’s understood requires no explanation!!!," Tip captioned. "I’m always here to show up and show out for mines. Regardless of WHATEVER!!! King ain’t never missed a beat!! Happy Gday Mrs H."
After getting her gifts, the Xscape singer hit the Atlanta party scene to celebrate another year of life:
Some of the highlights of @eclass1982 & my party!! Thank you for everyone who came out & help me in anyway make it a night!

The Harris couple goes from make ups to break ups to make ups again. Looks like they're currently on good terms now...even after that video of him all hugged up backstage with a chick went viral.
Around this time last year on an episode of "The Grand Hustle," Tip brought Tiny a new sports car after he said their marriage was a "distraction."
At the time the Us or Else rapper said, "Buying Tameka a new car isn't an apology. It is a gesture as a best friend to show how great of a best friend I can be."
"I appreciate Tip making a big gesture just to show me he didn't mean any disrespect," Tiny said after receiving the new whip. "And you know what, the old me might have fallen for it, but this kind of thing doesn't work on me anymore. I'm going to accept the car, of course. It was a very nice gesture, but it doesn't mean we're back together."
Happy Birthday Tiny!

Azealia Banks taped an appearance on Nick Cannon's "Wild 'N Out" and she was NOT happy after wrapping it up. She popped off on the show with claims that they were making colorist jokes. Now, Nick is responding. Find out what he said inside...
Everyone knows nothing is off limits when you go on Nick Cannon's "Wild 'N Out" sketch comedy show.
It's a zero chill zone.
Azealia Banks was tapped to appear on "Wild 'N Out," and after she finished filming, she took to social media to bash the cast about how she was treated on set. So, everyone knows when you go on the show they are going to crack jokes about you. But, according to Hot New Hip Hop, she was only scheduled to perform, NOT to join a team to battle it out with jokes.
Apparently, the cast STILL made fun of her, hurling -- what she called -- colorist jokes at her and she was SUPER pissed about it. Here's what she wrote about her experience:
Then, she hopped on IG stories and started attacking Nick specifically and she may have taken it too far talking about making jokes about Nick having lupus.
Nick responded to her posts:
He posted a screenshot of her IG story with the caption, "Don’t you hate when you create your own storms but forget your umbrella??? @azealiabanks We are praying for you Queen #speedyrecovery #Healing She #Wildnout for real #Karma"
Folks are sounding off about it on social media:
Azealia Banks really giving Nick Cannon and Wild N Out shit because when she went on the show they "made jokes"????? Tf she think was gonna happen? She ever watch the show before? This that fake woke attention seeking shit I can't stand
— Danny Ocean (@ayy_codyy) July 15, 2018
Bruh Azealia Banks is a fuckin cry baby yo. Nick Cannon said it best, “Don’t you hate when you create your own storms but forget your umbrella?” She talkin all that big shit on the internet but wanna be a pussy in public
— Young Nala (@NiaTheLioness_) July 15, 2018
Spitting FACTS right now: @NickCannon has always said since episode 1, THE VERY FIRST EPISODE of #WildNOut that the people who come on there HAVE to be ready at all costs, period. I do not see why Azealia Banks is straight up bashing Nick right now.

Sighs. Let's hope this stops right here.
Looks like rapper Lil Yachty was also in the mix.

Folks were sounding off about things going on in their lives on social media over the weekend. Go inside to see what Teyana Taylor, R. Kelly's ex-wife Andrea Kelly and Irv Gotti were venting about inside...
Social media was lit over the weekend as several celebrities took to Instagram to speak out and vent about what they've got going on in their lives. Because, what else are they gonna do?
Last week, Teyana Taylor went on Power 105's "The Breakfast Club" to air out her frustrations with the release of her recently released album K.T.S.E. The Kanye West-produced album was supposed to have a second, extended release, but it never happened and Teyana was blindsided by it.
In the interview, the "3Way" singer said there was no beef or animosity towards Ye because that's her family, but she's still not pleased with the way her album was rolled out. She complained that there was no formal roll out of the album. No visuals. No single. Nothing. And then to not have any of that and only give her fans 23 minutes worth of music, she wasn't feeling it.
Apparently, people took her words and twisted them up, so she hopped on IG to write out exactly how she feels about the album, Kanye and her craft. Check it:
For a better clarity of my "publicized emotions" toward my album...I LOVE MY ALBUM and never said that I didnt AND BELIEVE IN MY ALBUM with all of me. My complaints never came from a place of anger but more so from a place of hurt that I felt that I owed the world more. After 5 years of patience I could have anticipated the culture would be hurt that all I had to offer them was 23 mins. I have a very loyal and active fan base that I'm extremely indebted to and that I am extremely dedicated to. Though a shortened version shocked me upon its released date i appreciate my brother Ye for helping me produce my most vulnerable, personal and soulful album to date. I think that our collaboration on this album shows and proves to add to the culture we creatives promise to push forward! I never meant for my passion to be mistaken for ungratefulness however i'm always open to agreeing to disagree, that doesnt take away from the bond I share with not only Ye but all of my G.O.O.D Music family. Yall know ima keep shit a buck! #KTSE and last but not least I want to thank everyone for the love and support of #KTSE!
Another celeb taking to social media to address some issues...
R. Kelly's ex-wife Andrea Kelly is clapping back at the backlash she has been receiving since she opened up about the physical and emotional abuse she endured from ex-husband R. Kelly while they were married.
In an interview with TV One's "Sister Circle," Andrea detailed how she was abused during her entire marriage to the Pied Piper. Since opening up, R. Kelly fans have been harassing her on social media and she got to the point where she's fed up.
The choreographer started by thanking everyone who have supported her since she spoke out and then went IN on trolls who continue to try and silence her.
“By you shaming me and any other victims you’re helping the abuser accomplish their take of belittling, intimidating, and discounting all the abuse they’ve put the #victim and #victims though!” she wrote in part. "I AM A VOICE FOR THE VOICELESS! I am a #SURVIVOR OF SEXUAL ABUSE *EMOTIONAL ABUSE* PHYSICAL ABUSE *ECONOMIC ABUSE at the hands of my EX husband.”
Peep her full clapback above.
Also on social media...
Haha. So many relationship questions I got. And just woke up too. Yess I am completely single. With nobody at all. Yesss. I would get married again. But only if it’s the right woman. And by right I guess I’m looking for a lot. Lol. Bad Sexy Motherfucker. That keeps me looking at her and wanting her. When she is done up. Or when she is sleeping and just waking up. And has to be a cool person. And understanding of what I am doing and getting this money. And if she is that. She gets the world and will spoil the fuck outta her whether she wants it or not. And she must be a RIDER. In good times. But more importantly in bad times. Although. I had enough bad times in my life. I think the rest of it is gonna be all great times. And last. A freaky bitch who loves to FUCK!! Hahah. YESSS I want more kids. A lil girl. But whatever GOD gives me. Is always GREAT. Hope that answered all of your questions. Haha. I couldn’t believe y’all are that interested in that shit. Lol. I had fun answering some of the questions. Will do it again when I have more free time.
Record exec Irv Gotti wants everyone to know he's now a single man after calling it quits with his ex-wife Deb Lorenzo. Now, he's detailing what type of woman he wants and what qualities she has to have to make him settle down again.
Around this time last year, he was rumored to be dating former Taz Angel Ashely Martelle, but they must have broken up.
If interested, see what qualifications you need to snag Irv (above) and then, if you're feeling lucky, shoot your shot in his DMs.
Azealia Banks just shelved her upcoming Fantasea II album after she made claims that she was ambushed by Nick Cannon and the 'Wild 'N Out' cast during an appearance. Deets inside...
Azealia Banks filmed an episode of Nick Cannon's "Wild 'N Out" recently and after the taping she hopped on social media to air out her frustrations about the appearance.
According to the rapper, the "Wild 'N Out" cast hurled colorist jokes at her, called her "ugly," and it had her super in her feelings. It's unclear what her exact role was on the show. According to reports, she was only scheduled to perform, NOT to join a team to battle it out with jokes.
Either way, everyone knows when you go on this show it's a possibility you could get roasted with jokes. It just comes with being on the show. Even host Nick Cannon has been roasted relentlessly. However, Azealia says she was never asked to come there for said roasting. She and her team were only told to prepare for a performance and games hosted by Lil Yachty (who she said was cool). She also revealed she didn't get paid for the appearance, and she's not letting it air.
In her social media posts, Azealia went as far as clowning Nick over having Lupus, writing, "If I were to make fun of Nick Cannon for having lupus and being weak and sickly.....if I made a joke that said he'd be dead by the end of the year....Then Azealia Banks is the bad guy....Right?"
The "Wild 'N Out" honcho hopped on IG to respond to Banks, writing, "Don't you hate when you create your own storms but forget your umbrella?? We are praying for you Queen. #speedyrecovery #Healing She #Wildnout for real #Karma."
Well now, she has decided to shelf her upcoming 2nd studio album Fantasea II until...well, whenever she feels like it:
Then, she went in on black men again and also fired another low blow at Nick:
Her video messages continued into this morning:
Welp. Even a completely crazy person (not saying this is Azealia, per se) has valid points from time to time. But will people cape for her, especially considering how she often crosses the line? We shall see.
Then, she fired a shot at daytime talk show host Wendy Williams, wishing death on her like she did Nick:
Back in the comments section of Nick's IG post:
Comedians Michael Blackson and "Wild 'N Out" comedian B. Simone commented on the situation. And A. Banks responded:
Actor Jacob Berger also hopped in the mix:
Her reaction was above.
Bloop all around!

LeToya Luckett-Walker is currently on cloud 9 as some many great things have flourished in her life. TheYBF.com got the chance to chop it up with mom-to-be about her pregnancy, her fine husband and her adorable step-daughter. Get the exclusive inside...
LeToya Luckett is currently living out a real-life fairytale and we're loving every minute of it.
Back in August, the former Destiny's Child singer was surprised with a super sweet proposal by her man/entrepreneur Tommicus Walker. They went out to dinner to celebrate HIS birthday and then he turned the tables by getting down on one knee and asking her to marry him.
When you know what you want, you know. The couple didn't waste any time making it down the aisle either. They got married inside a mansion in Austin, Texas in December 2018 and now, they're expecting their first baby together.
Now, she's giving TheYBF.com one of the very first interviews about her pregnancy and slaying those stepmommy duties.
"It's terrifying," she told YBF correspondent James Terrell about entering into motherhood. "But, it's like God prepares you for everything."
Not only is she gearing up to be a first-time mom, she has been getting in practice with her ridiculously cute 6-year-step-daughter Madison Walker as her "mother-in-love." The new wife gushed over her fine husband, sharing details about what makes their relationship so solid and special.
"It's awesome to have someone who's equally yolked with you," LeToya told TheYBF.com. "Where y'all can pray and go before God and just, you know, have that foundation. And that's what we built our relationship on."
The 37-year-old singer said right after they tied the knot, ish was already trying to come between them. But that devil ain't stopping this show!
"I'm loving that no matter what you go through, you have a life partner there," she explained. "And I feel like within our marriage, especially within the first couple of months, stuff was coming out of no where. Just, you know. It was good stuff, bad stuff, all this stuff. But, through it all, we stayed strong though a lot of it. Then, everything that came out way made us stronger. Everything!"
Sometimes you just have to laugh out loud at the BS!
Before she got pregnant, LeToya was super busy filming "Greeleaf" episodes during the week and hitting the stage to perform in the "Set It Off" stage play on the weekends. She said her pregnancy was a total surprise for her and her husband.
"I don't know how this happened," she jokingly said.
The R&B singer also revealed which Destiny's Child member was the first to know about her pregnancy.
Peep the clip above to find out who! Because it kinda surprised us too.
Congrats again, LeToya and Tommicus!
Kurupt responds to his estranged wife Jovan Brown after she made claims that he ditched her after she was diagnosed with cancer. He spilled all kinds of tea too. Take a sip, plus get the latest update surrounding Yeezy model/reality star Shannade Clermont and her federal charges inside...
Rapper Kurupt is curently going through a divorce, spliting from his estranged wife Jovan Brown (aka Gail Gotti) after 10 years of marriage. They reportedly tied the knot in 2007 and called it quits in September 2017. She filed for divorce soon after.
Last month, Jovan put the Dogg Pound rapper on BLAST with claims that he up and left her after she was diagnosed with terminal cancer. She said he refused to help her pay her medical bills that were piling up as she needed treatment to fight the disease, or any of her living expenses.
Jovan filed to receive spousal support (she's gunning for $14,413/month) because she claims she was working hard behind-the-scenes, making sure his rap career was in order over 16 years. Not only that, she also claims her estranged husband took money out of their business accounts and made it so she couldn't access them.
According to The Blast, Jovan claims she helped put together his deals, made sure his kids from other women were taken care of and booked his travel.
However, Kurupt claims everything she's saying is a LIE. In recently filed legal documents, he said he has been separated from his estranged wife damn year 8 years and that they have been living apart ever since. He also pointed out that his estranged wife was even in a relationship with ex-NBA player Gary Payton from 2012 -2015.
As far as managing his career, he said he was already established when they met and that she never managed his career. However, he did give her a job to support herself and kids. In the legal documents, he also said she withdrew money from his company account for her own personal use - $65,000 to be exact - without telling him. He claims she owes him at LEAST $175,000.
The site reports:
The rapper says he had to let her go last year after he claims she was using his company account to pay her personal expenses, withdrew money without him knowing and even had his royalties diverted into her personal account, to the tune of $65k. He says she owes him around $175k.
Kurupt says he “absolutely did not terminate Respondent upon learning of her diagnosis,” and says she was diagnosed several years after they split. He also claims he has loaned her money for medical expenses.
He is asking the court to deny her request for spousal support or attorney fees.
This is getting ugly.
Today, Jovan posted this to her Instagram:
Is this a subliminal, or nah?
In other legal news...
Yeezy Season 6 model Shannade Clermont, one half of the Clermont Twins, was arrested on three federal charges a few days ago involving her stealing a victim's debut card who had overdosed after their "date." She charged him $400 for her "services", according to the text messages where they discussed her prostitute prices, and it seems to have been the Trojan horse for her to get to his bank account.
Now, the former "Bad Girls" star is requesting to get her passport back so she can get an ID to travel. Apparently, she made travel plans to Atlanta before she was forced to hand over all of her documentation. It's unclear if it's for another alleged escort appointment...
Well, the judge isn't trying to hear NONE of that. As expected, the judge denied her request and with good reason. If he gave her access to her passport, she could easily hop a flight out of the country to avoid prosecution.
The Blast has the deets:
The ‘Bad Girls Club’ star’s lawyer was requesting that Clermont be allowed to get her passport back so she could head to the DMV And get an ID card made.
Per Clermont’s conditions of release on bail, she’s allowed to travel to Georgia, California and throughout New York. Unfortunately, the judge did not care that her criminal case had upset her travel plans, and recommended finding another way of obtaining ID rather than getting her passport back.
Due to the nature of Clermont’s charges for wire fraud, access device fraud and aggravated identity theft, it’s also a good bet the judge doesn’t want her grabbing her passport and skipping out of the country.
Nice try, but she should have known (or at least her lawyer should have) that ish wasn't going to fly. Pun intended.
