Saniyya Dennis– a Buffalo State College student – went missing last month, and now the police believe she may have jumped to her death at Niagara Falls after a breakup with her boyfriend. The 19-year-old’s father - former Dipset rapper 40 Cal - is asking anyone with surveillance footage or information to come forward. See his heartbreaking plea for help inside…

Almost two weeks have passed, and police still have not located missing Buffalo State College student Saniyya Dennis, daughter of former Dipset rapper 40 Cal. Authorities now believe she may have thrown herself into Niagara Falls after a break up.

The 19-year-old sophomore from the Bronx was last seen leaving her dorm on April 24th. She was last seen on video early April 25th around Goat Island, according to Erie County District Attorney John Flynn. Bloodhounds also picked up the student’s scent around Goat Island during a search on April 30th. It's reported around 1AM she took a Snapchat selfie near the Nikola Tesla monument with Niagara Falls in the background and then called the friend.

“It appears that this poor girl took her own life,” Flynn said at a news conference Thursday morning (May 6th).

According to reports, Saniyya got into an argument with her boyfriend (who was in New York City at the time), which led him to breakup with her. After he called it off, she called him over 70 times in the next several hours, but he didn’t answer the phone. Later, she sent him a text that said she planned on killing herself.

“I’m so done with my own life, and living it,” the text read, according to WIVB. “I’ve finally had enough.”

Flynn said Saniyya was “troubled by the breakup” and reached out to a male friend in New York City, also telling him she had planned to take her life. Saniyya talked on the phone with her male friend for hours and he was able to “talk her down” at one point, but she seemingly changed her mind. She hopped on a bus to the Niagara Falls Visitor Center. While there, Saniyya texted her mother and told her she would call her the next day. In a text, she told a friend she wouldn’t see him this coming summer.

While the police have not uncovered her body, they believe she carried out the act of suicide based on the timeline of her last hours.

“Some are going to say without a body, do you definitely know that she took her own life?” Flynn continued. “No … all I can do is present you everything I have.”

“I feel awful for the parents,” he said. “I feel awful that I don’t have a conclusion, obviously.”

You can watch the full press conference below: 

Saniyya’s father,rapper 40 Cal (real name Calvin Byrd), is pleading with businesses in the area to share any surveillance footage they may have with the police.

“Why does it take so long to get subpoenas to cellphone records?” Saniyya’s father asked. “Why does it take so long to get video footage of buses?”

So tragically sad. We pray the family receives whatever they need so they can have closure.

‘Greatest Comedian Alive’ Katt Williams On Why His Perm Is An Homage To Women & The Huge Misconception About Drugs

kattwilliamsinterview

Katt Williams is talking his ish in a new interview with Fat Joe where he explains why he’s the greatest comedian alive, why his signature perm is an homage to women and the huge misconception about drugs. Get it all inside…

Talk your ish, Katt Williams!

One thing Katt Williams is going to do is keep it real, whether you like it or not. It’s likely one of the main reasons so many people like him.

Recently, the famed comedian hopped on a Zoom call with rapper Fat Joe where he explained why he considers himself the “greatest comedian alive.” The reason Katt feels he’s the best at this comedy thing is because of his close connection with “the people.” He said he speaks the truth and people can relate, so they love him.

“Everything I do is original sir,” he said.

The famed comedian – who has been accused of abusing drugs in the past – cleared up the notion that drugs enhance entertainers’ creativity, seemingly checking folks who have accused him of using drugs.

“The misconception is that there are drugs that can help you do your job. No there isn’t. There aren’t drugs that help you memorize to be creative, to come up with something that someone didn’t already say. To figure out the funny thing in something tragic. Those are not the side effect of drugs, those are the side effects of brilliance. And so if you think there is some state you can be in that can deliver you a higher frame of comedy, there isn’t. It’s the closet connection to the people.”

By the way, Katt confirmed he hasn’t done drugs – only marijuana and nicotine.

“I said ‘okay, I’m not going to do those two things. I’m not going to do nothing other than what I’m doing right now.’ Right then, I was smoking weed and smoking cigarettes. And that was the end of it. And to this day, all these years later…I’m still just Nicotine and THC.

Drugs didn’t make Katt successful…WOMEN did. And with that, he pays homage to his female fan base by rocking his signature perm hairstyle.

“I’m only the greatest comedian living because I have more female fans than any comedian on the global, period. That’s the end of the discussion,” he said.

He continued,

“A perm is an homage to them [women] anyways, they know what that is.”

“See they let me in the business thinking that maybe I was soft out there, you understand? But it was a misconception. Even as ‘the pimp comedian,’ you have to understand the brilliance in the fact that he’s told no pimp jokes, that he told no jokes about slapping a b–ch –that conversation never takes place. You understand?” Katt said.

Fat Joe chimed in and jokingly told Katt not to say those things about the late comedian.

“That’s in his autobiography, sir!,” Katt responded. “In his autobiography, he tells you who he slept with, what he did, that’s what made him the GOAT. He did not hide the things that were bad in his life. The things that you wouldn’t tell anyone about.”

Later, Katt talked about his upcoming Netflix comedy special (that’s currently being edited), his love for black women and more.

Check out the interview below:

 

While Katt dropped some gems during the interview, fans were upset Fat Joe kept talking over him and seemed unprepared for the interview. Hmph.

Also...

Katt Williams stars in the highly-anticipated horror comedy The House Next Door: Meet the Blacks 2, which is set be to released on Friday, June 11th.

The cast includes Katt, Mike Epps, Bresha Webb, Michael Blackson, Gary Owen, Snoop Dogg, Rick Ross, Lil Duval and more. Peep the new trailer above.

Happy Mother’s Day to all of our YBF mothers (OGs, new & expecting) out there!

In honor of the celebration of motherhood, we've rounded up a few Mother’s Day tributes that has us all in our feels. While we know Mother’s Day should be celebrated everyday due to the sacrifices women make to ensure their children are well taken care of, it’s nice to dedicate one day to the strong moms out there making it happen.

Singer/reality star Tamar Braxton took to Instagram to post an emotional Mother’s Day tribute dedicated to her mother, Evelyn Braxton. She talked about how she didn’t want to be a mother previously because she didn’t think she could do as great of a job as her own mother.

”I never knew I wanted to be a mother because the truth is I never thought I could do it remotely as good as you. how do you live up to the nurturing, kind, smart, honest wonderful, amazing mother that you are and grew up with?,” she asked.

”To me, You are perfection,” she continued. “You are the wind beneath my wings and I am honored to celebrate you on today and every day the best gift you have given me is showing me the blue print in how you did it so I can be the same way to beans. I’m so grateful that he knows how amazing you are and loves you like I do #happymothersdaymommie #happymothersday”

 

 

While it was all love vibes on her IG timeline, Tamar was poppin’ off about not having her Mother’s Day demands met and seemingly hinted that her ex-husband Vincent Herbert didn’t wish her a Happy Mother’s Day.

Peep her posts below:

So, who is the somebody because....nevermind.

Now, grab your TISSUES!

NBA commentator and former player Jalen Rose broke down in tears while reflecting on his mother’s legacy. In February, Jalen lost his mother, Jeanne, to lung cancer. She was 79. His grandmother, Mary Belle Hicks, died last September at age 103.

"This is the first time in my life that I didn't have my mother or grandmother on Mother's Day," Jalen said as he fought back tears. His co-host Maria Taylor stood up and comforted him while he talked about his mother and grandmother.

"It's been tough, for me and my family, but I'm gonna be strong. I got a lot of people who rely on me, a lot of people who love me, lot of people who believe in me."

Whew!

”Sister, Sister” alum Jackée Harry shared a cute Mother’s Day story. She took to social media to share that she didn’t want to accept the role as Lisa Landry on “Sister, Sister” at first because she didn’t want to play someone’s “mother.” She said she was “too young and sexy to be anybody’s MOTHER!”

As we all know, she eventually took the job and she said it was the best thing she could have done.

“But my sister eventually convinced me to take the part and I’m glad I did because it helped me realize how fulfilling it is to mentor younger women,” she continued.

”Love & Hip Hop” star Bianca Bonnie took to social media to air out her frustrations about being a new mother on Mother’s Day. Instead of gifts, she received court papers from her son’s father, Chozus Dote.

”Instead of wishing me a Happy Mother’s Day or Sending me a Gift for taking such amazing care of my son I got sent court papers to ruin my Mother’s Day as if I was ever allowed to heal from my PostPartum Depression,” she tweeted. “I’m so Glad I have the people I have around me or I would snap.”

 

 

Sheesh.

On the flip side, rapper Lil Baby’s ex-girlfriend Jayda Cheaves had an amazing Mother’s Day, which led fans to believe she’s BACK with her son’s father. Get into her luxe Mother’s Day gifts below:

XSCAPE vs. SWV's VERZUZ Recap: Why Coko Almost Didn’t Make It + Wendy Williams’ Ex-Husband All Up In The Mix

0

Two of your fave 90s girl groups went head-to-head during the Mother’s Day VERZUZ Battle edition. However, it was more of a R&B love fest that had everyone singing their hearts out. More inside…

Mother’s Day 2021 was celebrated with another round of R&B female star power following Erykah Badu vs. Jill Scott’s inaugural Mother’s Day VERZUZ Battle last year.

This year, R&B fans were treated to a battle between 90s R&B girl groups XSCAPE (Kandi Burruss, Tameka "Tiny" Cottle, LaTocha Scott, Tamera Coggins-Wynn, and Tamika Scott) and SWV (Cheryl "Coko" Gamble, Tamara "Taj" Johnson and Leanne "Lelee" Lyons), which went down in Atlanta. Both groups hit the stage together for a celebration of their greatest hits.

Backed by DJ AONE (who made sure to bring the energy) and DJ Spinderella (former of Salt-N-Pepa), the two powerhouse singing groups went up against one another, although it wasn’t a battle at all and more so a celebration of #BlackGirlMagic…R&B style.

While the ladies certainly put on a show as they performed some of their throwback hits, fans noticed something was off with SWV singer Coko. After the VERZUZ battle wrapped up, she explained she witnessed a woman being shot outside of her hotel room just moments before the battle. The traumatic experience caused her to have a panic attack, but her son was there to help calm her down and she was able to hit the stage with her bandmates. She almost skipped out on the battle.

 

“Last night as I’m preparing for Verzuz, a lady was shot outside my hotel window,” she wrote in an Instagram post. “To see & hear the four shots, see her laying on the ground and all the blood was unbelievable!!”

She continued, “Thennnn...I get to the venue and had a really bad anxiety attack! Literally crying & screaming. Yeah y’all saw me looking uncomfortable & irritated during the first half but, if it wasn’t for my son @jayyemichael @ynottamiya & @mrljb I probably wouldn’t have been out there at all. Thank you for calming me down & understanding my mental. I love y’all to the fullest!! I always say most won’t care to understand but when you get those that do cherish them!!”

Lordt! Just goes to show people should start practicing the art of not judging people. You never know what someone is going through and dealing with.

Also…

Wendy Williams’ ex-husband Kevin Hunter (aka Kelvin Hunter) was all in the mix behind-the-scenes before the VERZUZ Battle began.

“I’m sooo grateful to have the opportunity to share this MOMENT with these ICONIC QUEENS @officialxscape and be here for this HISTORICAL event!!,” Wendy’s ex wrote. “HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!!!! @officialswv #versuz #trilla #versuzbattle @therealtamikascott @majorgirl @kandi @iamlatocha”

It seems Kevin and XSCAPE’s Tamika Scott have a business relationship. In October 2020, he told Authority magazine that his publishing company (Head Hunter Publishing) will be releasing Tamika Scott’s cookbook, “Cooking With Tamika Scott.”

Interesting.

In case you missed, you can check out the full VERZUZ Battle between XSCAPE & SWV below:

We’ve rounded up a few flicks of the ladies from the epic VERZUZ Battle, which you can check out below:

 

Tiny's husband, T.I., came out to support his wife. This is the first time he has been seen publicly since those sexual misconduct allegations.

Jermaine Dupri - who discovered XSCAPE - and rapper Da Brat were in the mix.

Reality star Deelishis and her hubby Raymond Santana Jr. - who star on "VH1 Couples Retreat" - also came out to see the ladies.

For laughs...

Former football player/TV host Anthony "Spice" Adams and comedian Affion Crockett were cutting up after the VERZUZ Battle. Spice made sure to bring the hype energy DJ AONE served up during the battle. Get your laugh on above.

Wendy Williams unveiled her Madame Tussauds wax figure on her daytime talk show and it’s SPOT ON! Check it out inside…

 

wendywaxfigure2

Listen, when it comes to Madame Tussauds museum capturing the likeness of celebs in their wax figures…they’re usually a HIT (Zendaya) or MISS (i.e. Beyonce, Nicki Minaj). Mostly misses. However, they finally nailed one.

Daytime talk show host Wendy Williams just copped her own wax figure and it’s SPOT ON. Like, it’s insanely good. The 56-year-old daytime talk show host unveiled her wax figure on her talk show. However, it wasn’t an easy task to get her there. 

After 20 artists put in over 800 hours to make the wax figure, Wendy Williams’ wax twin traveled over 3,000 miles across the Atlantic on a cargo ship to appear on Wendy’s NYC set.

It took the artists over 5 weeks to fix her hair where strands of human hair were inserted individually. The wax figure is rocking one of Wendy's outfits from her closet (a Diane von Furstenberg jumpsuit & Gucci sneakers), her signature "W" necklace, and a Frank Muller watch set at 10AM - the time ther talk show stars.

Bringing Wendy to life via wax took long hours and tons of work.  The museum's artists took 200 measurements and photographs from every angle to capture her likeness...even down to the spacing between her eyebrows. Wendy and Madama Tussauds have been working together for over a year to create an interactive experience for her fans at the Times Square destination.

Now, fans can get up close and personal for a chance to say “How You Doin’” with their fave daytime talk show host.

Peep her spot on figure below:

Later, Wendy Williams unveiled her wax figure at the Madame Tussauds New York. Her son, Kevin Hunter Jr., joined her for the big event.

Awards season is shaking up! Drake is being crowned as the best artist of the decade by Billboard, Usher is set to host and perform at this year’s iHeartRadio Music Awards, and NBC cancelled the Golden Globes due to their racism. OOP. Get it all inside…

This awards season was nothing ordinary as ceremonies were altered to comply with COVID-19 guidelines. Most were virtual, but the Oscars were able to host the bulk of their winners and nominees last month. The 2021 Billboard Music Awards are set to go down at the Microsoft Theater in L.A.

Hate him or love him: Drake is a record-breaking superstar. And he’s being recognized for the work he has put in.

Billboard announced Drake will receive the prestigious Artist of the Decade Award at the 2021 Billboard Music Awards (BBMAs). Drizzy holds the title for most Billboard Music Awards with 27, setting the mark after taking home 12 awards in 2019.

Billboard's Artists of the Decade category ranks the best-performing artists based on activity on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart and the Billboard 200 albums tally, as well as social media data and touring revenue from Billboard Boxscore, from Dec. 5, 2009, through Sept. 28, 2019.

The Young Money rapper has been killing the music charts over the last decade.

For 2010s: • Nine No. 1 albums on the Billboard 200 chart - the most of the decade of any artist • 33 top 10s on the Billboard Hot 100 chart - the most of the decade of any artist • Six No. 1 songs on the Billboard Hot 100 chart • 18 No. 1s on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart - the most of the decade of any artist • 69 top 10s on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart - the most of the decade of any artist • 10 No. 1 albums on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart

Career Chart Records: • Only solo male with more than 50 career weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart • A record 232 entries on the Billboard Hot 100 chart • A record 45 top 10s on the Billboard Hot 100 chart • A record 22 No. 1 titles on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart • A record 84 top 10s on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart • A record 120 top 40 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 chart

Notable Chart Stats: • Eight No. 1 songs on the Billboard Hot 100 chart • Nine No. 1 albums on the Billboard 200 chart • 11 No. 1 albums on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart

So yeah, these are the reasons why he’s copping the Artist of the Decade Award. Much deserved.

The 2021 Billboard Music Awards will broadcast live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday, May 23rd at 8pm EST/5pm PST on NBC.

Speaking of award shows…

 

 

Before he turns up for his Las Vegas residency, Usher has been tapped to host and perform during the 2021 iHeartRadio Music Awards, set to air live on Thursday, May 27th on FOX.

In addition, the event will feature performances from The Weeknd with special guest Ariana Grande, Bruno Mars& Anderson .Paak (Silk Sonic), Dan + Shay and Doja Cat, with more to be announced. Fans can expect appearances from Megan Thee Stallion, Roddy Ricch, Dua Lipa, Taylor Swift and more. Lil Nas X and Chris Martin will present Elton John with The 2021 iHeartRadio Icon Award.

The 2021 iHeartRadio Music Awards will air LIVE from The Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, Thursday, May 27th (8:00-10:00 PM ET live / PT tape-delayed) on FOX. The event also will be heard on iHeartMedia radio stations nationwide and on the iHeartRadio app.

In other awards show news…

 

 

NBC is not here for the Golden Globes lack of diversity, which some have called racist.

The network announced it will NOT air the Golden Globes telecast next year (2022) as folks continue to criticize the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) for their lack of racial diversity among its voting members and various ethical concerns. It's said the organization has no Black voting members.

The network released a statement that said:

"We continue to believe that the HFPA is committed to meaningful reform. However, change of this magnitude takes time and work, and we feel strongly that the HFPA needs time to do it right," a spokesperson for NBC said in a statement.

"As such, NBC will not air the 2022 Golden Globes," the spokesperson added. "Assuming the organization executes on its plan, we are hopeful we will be in a position to air the show in January 2023."

Back in March, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association vowed to diversify its membership and make other changes. It's reported several big streaming companies like Netflix, Amazon Studios and WarnerMedia will no longer work with HFPA until more sweeping changes are made in the group's demographic makeup and ethics rules.

Hmph. Not even mad at this.

NFL Fans Are Outraged Over Tim Tebow’s Return Before Colin Kaepernick's!

kaepernicktimtebow

Word on the curb is that Tim Tebow is making an NFL return after not playing in the league since 2012. Fans are outraged the white former QB is getting a job before Colin Kaepernick. Deets inside…

The sports world is in a frenzy after news broke that Tim Tebow would likely be making a return to the NFL. Fans are PISSED the former white quarterback is getting an NFL job while Colin Kaepernick still remains sidelined.

According to reports, Tim Tebow is expected to sign a one-year contract with his hometown Jacksonville Jaguars soon. The 33-year-old, a former NFL quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner, will make a comeback as a tight end.

"The #Jaguars are planning to sign QB-turned-TE Tim Tebow to a 1-year deal, per me and @TomPelissero, a deal that could be official in the next week or so. Nothing done yet. But he'll have a chance to make the team to reunite with his mentor and college head coach Urban Meyer," tweeted NFL reporter Ian Rapoport.

Oh, but get this. Tebow will be returning to the NFL to play tight end, a position he NEVER played in high school, college or his previous three-year NFL career, according to ESPN.

If he signs, he’ll reunite with head coach Urban Meyer after winning two college football national championships while at Florida in 2006 and 2008.

Tebow played with the New York Jets during his final regular season game in the NFL before he was hired by ESPN as a college football analyst in 2013. In 2015, he signed a one-year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles as a third string quarterback. He played all four pre-season games before he was released before the regular season.

Fans have been sounding off on the fact Tim Tebow could possibly be given a job and Colin Kaepernick still hasn’t been picked up by a team. Some say it’s giving “racism” and “white privilege.” As you know, Kaepernick was blackballed from the league after he took a knee during the National Anthem in 2016 to bring awareness to police brutality and social injustice.

Peep the outrage below:

 

 

In 2019, Colin trekked it to Atlanta for an NFL workout with wide receiver Antonio Brown. No NFL team picked him up, but he has been putting in work behind the scenes. The former NFL QB is releasing a new book about the abolition of policing and prisons.

TMZ reports:

The book -- titled "Abolition for the People: The Movement for a Future Without Policing & Prisons" -- is set to drop in October and features 30 essays, including one from Colin himself.

Colin also served as editor on the project -- which we're told will be available in hard copy, audio book and e-book.

“The omnipresent threat of premature death at the hands, knees, chokeholds, tasers, and guns of law enforcement has only further engrained its anti-Black foundation into the institutions of policing," Kaepernick states. "In order to eradicate anti-Blackness, we must also abolish the police. The abolition of one without the other is impossible."

One person familiar with the book says the conversation Colin wants to have with his readers is essentially this ... how do we reimagine and reenvision keeping communities safe without a militarized police presence?

The Atlanta rapper (real name DeAndre Cortez Way) is being sued by a woman who claims he beat her so bad she suffered a miscarriage. The woman – who is remaining anonymous & has been dubbed Jane Doe – pulled the trigger on a lawsuit where she alleges he beat her repeatedly over years.

"(Jane Doe) and (Way) first began their on-and-off romantic relationship in 2007," the lawsuit reads. "They restarted their relationship in a more serious capacity in 2014 until mid 2019 when (Doe) could no longer withstand (Way's) constant abuse."

On behalf of Jane Doe, lawyer Neama Rahmani filed the lawsuit against the rapper on behalf of the unidentified woman in civil court in Los Angeles.

"It took her years to escape the psychological and physical grasp of her abuser," Neama Rahmani told USA TODAY.

In the court docs, Jane Doe claims she was pregnant with his child in 2015. During one instance, he reportedly became irate and violent after a conversation and started to punch her in the face and chest until she couldn’t stand on her feet. Lordt.

TMZ reports:

She says the punches caused her to fall to the ground, where she curled her body to protect her stomach while using her hands to cover her head. She claims Soulja also kicked her all over her body, particularly in the stomach ... and claims soon after she suffered a miscarriage.

She claims there were other violent incidents. Like in 2017 ... Jane says Soulja flew into a violent rage ... punching her in the face and breasts. She says things got so bad Soulja's security had to pull him away from her. She claims Soulja was pissed because he thought she was leaving him.

She says a 2018 incident was caught on camera. Jane claims a conversation turned violent as he stood over her and began to physically attack and yell at her. She claims the night vision cameras used on the show captured the incident, which later aired on the WeTV network in early 2019.

Wow. Well it sounds like this could possibly be Soulja's ex/Teddy Riley’s daughter Nia Riley, seeing that she made similar claims previously.But we cannot confirm the identity of Jane Doe.

 

 

Nia appeared on VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood” and WEtv’s “Marriage Boot Camp” with Soulja. There was an incident between Soulja and Nia on “Marriage Boot Camp” where he was being abusive and it was captured on night vision cameras and aired on the show, which was mentioned in the lawsuit.

Check it:

 

Jane Doe said Soulja would coerce her to engage in sexual acts through the threat of physical violence and said he would physically assault her if she refused.

The woman is suing for assault, sexual battery, gender violence and more.

OH? ‘LAHH: Miami’ Star Prince Claims Tory Lanez Assaulted Him In The Club!

“Love & Hip Hop: Miami” star Prince claims rap singer Tory Lanez assaulted him in a Miami club and he has the alleged bruises to prove it. More inside…

Tory Lanez is being accused of assault…again.

After Megan Thee Stallionsounded the alarmabout how the Canadian artist shot at her, “Love & Hip Hop: Miami” star/promoter Prince Harty claims Tory reignited their beef when he punched him in the face while partying in a Miami club. Oh? Tory denies it.

So, here’s what happened according to the police report…

Last month, Tory was living it up at club Vendome on South Beach. Prince tells cops he was hanging out at his own VIP table when he was hit on the left side of his face. Earlier that night, Prince claims he was with Arizona Cardinals’ Malcolm Butler and noticed a group of people “staring” at him.

Once Prince was alone, he alleges Tory rolled up on him with an entourage and punched him on the side of his face, which resulted in him reportedly having a serious headache and swelling to his face.

Here’s footage of the alleged attack below:

Sure looks like Tory put his hands on someone.

After the incident, Prince hopped on camera to document his injuries:

TMZ has more deets about the incident below:

Prince told cops he turned around and made eye contact with Tory, who ran out of the club and took off in a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van. Tory is named in the police report as a suspect for an alleged battery.

According to the report, Prince also told cops he went for medical treatment and the responding officer said Prince had a visibly swollen area on his left cheek.

As expected, Tory DENIES he did anything. A rep for the artist claims Tory was nowhere near Prince at the specific time he alleges the assault went down and said Prince is “obsessed” with Tory. (Sound familiar?)

Even further, the rep says there are no witnesses or footage to back up Prince's claim -- 'cause, again, Tory says it didn't happen ...

TMZ broke the story ... Tory allegedly swung on Prince back in 2019 at LIV Miami, and Prince is already suing him over that, and we're told he's considering filing a new one for this latest claim.

Chile…but when Megan Thee Stallion…nevermind.

We don’t even check for Tory anymore, but when a person is consistently violent– YES we will blast them. Meg already told us how Tory operates.  And she didn't stutter.

In October, Tory was charged with one felony count each of assault with a semiautomatic firearm, personal use of a firearm, and carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle.

In January, the "WAP" raptress responded to false reports that claimed charges against Tory Lanez were dropped. It was fake news.

"Y'all can't tell when sh*t fake news? Y'all still don't see an ABUSER picking with me ? The first court date got pushed back bc of the inauguration but I can't wait until the MF FACTS come out ! B*tch you shot me AND MY STORY NOT CHANGING AND B*TCH YOU GOING TO JAIL."

Bloop. We wonder if Tory is creating a storyline to appear on "Love & Hip Hop: Miami." It's not a far-fetched possibility.

In September, it's reported Tory Lanez sued Prince over a separate 2019 alleged incident at another Miami night club. So these two are definitely not complete strangers.

‘This Is Us’ Ending With Season 6, Fans Want A Beth & Randall Spin-Off!

Grab your tissues. Your fave tearjerker series is coming to an end. “This Is Us” will end with Season 6. Fans are bummed about it, but they’re championing for a Beth & Randall spin-off.  More inside…

Life with the Pearsons is coming to an end.

”This Is Us” is one of NBC’s most popular shows. Every week, fans tuned in to see how the Big Three - Randall, Kate and Kevin Pearson – would navigate their individual lives while trying to maintain a tight family unit.

The award-winning series is a tearjerker for SURE, but fans love every minute of it. Each episode sent viewers through a range of emotions as one minute everyone is seemingly happy with the way life is going before something devastating happens (or reflecting on the past) and we’re all wiping tears from our faces. But that’s what made us all fall in love with the show – building connections with characters we relate to.

Now, it’s coming to an end. The hit family drama will end after Season 6, closing its run during the upcoming 2021-22 broadcast season. However, the cancellation news wasn’t a total surprise.

”This Is Us” creator Dan Fogelman has been hinting the show would end with Season 6 for a few years.

In May 2019, NBC renewed “This Is Us” for three more seasons. After it was announced the show would be returning for several seasons, stars Sterling K Brown and Susan Kelechi Watson - who portray one of our fave black couples on primetime TV, Beth & Randall Pearson - had a whole twerk-off in the kitchen of their on-screen home, which you can check out HERE.

Before the renewal news was announced, Dan Fogelman hinted at the show’s endgame when he said the series had hit the “midpoint” after Season 3.

“We never set out to make a television series that was going to last 18 seasons, so we have a very direct plan. I have script pages I have written and I’m writing that really are deep, deep, deep into the future. We have a plan for what we’re going to do, and I know what the plan is,” he told THR in April 2019.

THR reports:

While an official count has yet to be determined, it’s expected that the final season will consist of around 18 episodes, likely enough to carry the series over the 100-episode threshold typically needed to secure a lucrative off-network syndication deal and triggering a cash infusion for Fogelman and Disney, which now owns the series after closing its $71.3 billion Fox deal a few years ago. That would create yet another revenue stream after Disney-owned Hulu in 2017 acquired SVOD rights to This Is Us in what sources at the time said was a record-breaking per-episode fee. Hulu and NBC shared co-exclusive rights to the series.

Fans have been in Sterling K. Brown’s comments, championing for a Beth & Randall spin-off:

@hannah.bouchard: Is it bad that I want the whole show to be Randall and Beth at this point. I feel like their marriage, individual struggles and growth & family are so much more fascinating and better acted. The other stories just don’t measure up

@missgugz: I wish Beth and Randall had a spin-off!

@lovecamisha: I do want and Randall and Beth spinoff.

@booskieswife: Lord, Jesus. Nooooooo! I can’t take it. They definitely need to give Randall and Beth a spin-off. I love their love I’ll take Kevin too. Toby and Kate are BORING

Sterling's role as Randall solidified his spot in Hollywood as he scooped up Primtime EMMY Awards, a Golden Globes award, NAACP Image Award, and Screen Actors Guild awards. We're sure it'll be bittersweet for everyone.

After this week's touching episode, Sterling shared a photo from an emotional scene that had his fans all in their feels:

 

 

And Susan Kelechi Watson shared some behind-the-scenes footage of herself in rehearsal for her ballet performance:

 

 

Man! We're going to miss them!

Catch a new episode of "This Is Us" on Tuesdays at 9/8c on NBC.

”Not the first, won’t be the last,” she tweeted.

Forever FLOTUS Michelle Obama Opens Up About How She Coped With ‘Low Grade Depression’

Forever First Lady Michelle Obama drops new gems during an interview with late night talk show host Stephen Colbert where she opens up about her battle with “low grade depression” during the pandemic. More inside…

One thing about our Forever First Lady Michelle Obama– she’s going to bless us with some gems to help us navigate life.

Mrs. Obama recently appeared on the “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” where she opened about her own struggle with depression. Not that we find any joy in Lady O experiencing depression, but it does help to know that she’s going through the same feelings and emotions we’re all going through as we try to figure out our new normal during the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

“This is a part of life,” Mrs. Obama said. “Nobody rides life on a high, and I think it’s important for young people to know that you know it’s like, no, you’re not going to feel great all the time.”

Mrs. Obama said she protects her peace by turning off “the noise that is upsetting.” She said she had to stop reading all of the feeds that are fueling her anxiety. And she mentioned she did this while serving as First Lady.

“I pull back from it. I surround myself with things that make me feel good: Family, friends, walks, exercise. So when I talk to my kids about that, I try to urge them to understand that the valleys are temporary and so are the peaks. They can be temporary. And they have to be prepared to handle the highs and the lows," she said.

The Harvard Law School graduate explained how when she showers and gets dressed for the day, it helped with her having a better mood overall.

“Having a schedule, even in quarantine, was something that I did. I woke up, I took a shower, I worked out, I got dressed every day,” Obama said. “There wasn’t a day that went by that I didn’t do that, because it’s just the doing that gets you out of the funk.

“I find that if I spend the whole day in a sour mood, lights out in the bed, the next day I’ll feel the same way,” she added. “But if I get up and I shower ... something might happen in the course of me doing something that really knocks me into a positive place. So I try to fight the tendency to sort of wallow in my low," she said. “Don’t wallow in your low, Stephen.”

Noted.

Peep the clip below:

And she’s right. Life will definitely take you through ups and downs where you can learn how to appreciate the highs and how to push through the lows.

Mrs. O dropped some relationship gems for young couples:

Our generous queen talked about how she doesn’t have any plans on slowing down on her philanthropic efforts:

Does the Chi-town native prefer deep dish or thin crust pizza?
