Rumors

A mother is dead after a confrontation with a police officer ended when he fired multiple shots, while she lay on the ground yelling, “I’m pregnant.”The happened Monday night (May 13) in the Houston area of Baytown, Texas.44-year-old Pamela Turner was walking to her apartment when an officer attempted to arrest her for outstanding warrants. The two began to struggle and the officer deployed his Taser. Turner somehow got ahold of the Taser and Tased the officer.The officer then drew his gun and proceeded to shoot multiple rounds while standing over Turner as she lay on the ground.In cellphone footage of the incident, just moments before being shot to death, Turner yelled: “I’m pregnant!”The officer performed CPR on Turner, but she was pronounced dead on the scene.In an effort to defend the officer’s deadly actions, Baytown Police Lt. Steve Dorris claimed that the officer—whose name has not been released—feared for his life because Turner Tased him (which was exactly what he was trying to do to her).“Our officer was tased, and you have to understand what a Taser is. It’s a weapon designed to incapacitate people. The question is: ‘Was the officer in fear for his life?’ I think a logical person would say yes,” Dorris said. An eyewitness captured the shooting on video and it was shared online, going viral on platforms such as Facebook and Twitter.Dorris seemed to take more issue with the video going viral than the fact that a 44-year-old mother was just shot and killed.“It’s unfortunate that somebody takes a tragic incident like this and posts it on social media,” said Dorris. “It’s extremely disrespectful for everybody involved, but that’s the day and age we live in with social media.”Due to “prior dealings” with Turner, the officer knew there were outstanding arrest warrants against her. Court records show Turner had two warrants for criminal mischief and one for assault resulting in bodily harm.Turner’s sister Antoinette said that she had a history of mental illness and was currently taking medication for schizophrenia.However, neighbors told reporters that she was not a threat.“Sometimes you would see her, you know, get into it with people around the apartments, but nothing too, you know, bad,” Raquel Cuellar said. “It’s just, you know, just typical her. She’s not a bad person. She didn’t hurt nobody.”Turner was often seen walking her dog.“She would walk her dog. That’s all she did was walk her dog and pick up trash,” said neighbor Jonathan Little. “She didn’t mess with anybody. It was just her and her dog.”Antoinette also said that her sister was NOT pregnant as she had claimed just before being shot. Police also said an autopsy confirmed that Turner was not pregnant.Turner did have two children, both in their 20s. She also had three grandchildren.Interestingly, Antoinette claims the officer who shot her sister was also one of her neighbors. Turner allegedly had her. However, this has yet to be confirmed by other sources.The officer who shot Turner is an 11-year veteran and has been placed on administrative leave while police investigate the matter.Police confirmed that he was wearing a body cam during the incident, but that footage is unlikely to be released to the public. is a post from:

In yet another L for Steve Harvey this week, the man with many jobs has lost yet another paycheck and is being replaced by another white woman on television.According to , Melissa McCarthy will be taking over as host of NBC’s “Little Big Shots” when it returns this year, replacing Steve Harvey, who has hosted the show for the past seasons.“Melissa’s just an incredible performer and incredible comedian,” NBC’s co-chairman of entertainment Paul Telegdy said in a statement, adding that the mother of two, 48, “will bring a completely fresh perspective to it.”“Melissa is a strong creative force with her own ideas. Changes will be apparent,” Telegdy added.Although an exact date for the series’ return has not been announced, the show will begin airing again at 8 p.m. on Sunday nights after the end of football season next winter.The news comes not long after it was reported that Steve Harvey’s daytime talk show Steve had been by NBC after seven years with the network.In place of Steve’s talk show, NBC will air Kelly Clarkson’s new daytime show The Kelly Clarkson Show.That makes two white women in a row that have replaced Steve Harvey on television. What’s next? Amy Schumer’s gonna take his Family Feud gig too? is a post from:

The Marathon Continues … literally.Nipsey Hussle’s Marathon Clothing store has reported a massive increase in sales since the rapper’s shooting death in March.Earlier this week, the South Central Los Angeles-based business announced that it had officially closed its doors for the foreseeable future, however, the online shop has remained up and running and business is booming.According to , Hussle’s fans and supporters have been buying merchandise in droves via , which has brought in more than $10 million. Hats, hoodies and t-shirts are the store’s biggest sellers, sources close to Nip’s team said.The tragic irony behind all of this is that Hussle was shot and killed in front of The Marathon on March 31st, which is likely the reason behind the brick and mortar business’ temporary (if not permanent) closing.“Thank you to everyone who’s placed an order with us these last couple of weeks. We appreciate the unprecedented outpour of support. It means a lot to our team and family,” a message from the store read on Instagram on Monday (May 6).“We are working around the clock to fulfill every order placed.

After three seasons on the air, Fox will not be picking up Star for a fourth season.The news isn’t surprising considering the show’s low ratings, but the abrupt cancellation will leave fans with a number of unanswered questions after Season 3’s shocking cliffhanger.Via :The finale ended in bloodshed after Miss Ruby (Juanita Jennings) was gunned down by the same Bankhead gang members who later opened fire on unsuspecting guests during Derek (Quincy Brown) and Alex’s (Ryan Destiny) wedding reception. While the bride and groom managed to walk away unscathed, others weren’t so lucky.Carlotta’s (Queen Latifah) sister Cassie (Brandy) was seriously injured after using her body to shield her sibling from the onslaught of bullets. Meanwhile, Angel (Evan Ross) took several shots to the chest and Mateo (William Levy) was last seen bleeding out on the floor. With the show not returning next season, the fates of these characters remain unknown.Star’s cancellation comes after Fox renewed its sorta-sister show Empire for Season 6, though at this point. is a post from:

It seems like all is well between the twin sisters who got pregnant by the same guy … so much so that they’re working on a new show together called “Twin Baby Mamas.”Last week, the internet was going crazy over the wild story about Keonyae and twin sisters Nia and Nydia, who all met at a gym where Keonyae is a personal trainer, and somehow, the twin sisters ended up just a month apart from each other.RELATED: Keonyae initially said all parties involved were OK with the situation and the three of them were living happily together as a “throuple” as they wait for the babies to arrive.Keonyae even bragged about the whole thing on Instagram, writing: “I bet [I’m] the only n***a y’all know wit twin baby mommas and both kool wit it … I need a show blood”But one of the sisters, Nydia, got in her feelings and about the “situationship,” writing on Facebook that Keonyae left out a number of key details in his bragging about getting Nydia and her twin sister pregnant, including the fact that he already has kids and is still “dating” his baby mama.PREVIOUSLY: Even worse, Nydia said she didn’t find out her sister had also gotten pregnant by Keonyae until recently.“I just found out April 1st that while him and his other [baby mama] were dating he got my sister pregnant as well and that she is due a month after me,” Nydia shared. “When I found out it hurt me. Alot,” she added. “Can’t even be excited to be an aunt.”Nydia clarified that this was NOT intentional (at least not on her part) and she was pissed that Keonyae was out here making it seem like the three of them were in a “polygamy relationship.”“I would never f**k on the same n***a as my sister,” she said. “Just gross.”Now it looks like Keonyae, Nydia and Nia have put all of that behind them, because they’re working on some sort of a show/documentary together (just like Keonyae “predicted” in his Instagram post above).Los Angeles-based film director Christopher Jackson shared a trailer for the show called “” on his Instagram Wednesday.The show is shot documentary-style and features Keonyae, Nydia and Nia telling all of their business, including, in Keonyae’s words, the “what, when, where and how.”Their explanation was hella simple, but the reality of their situation is a lot more complex, considering that when the babies are born they will not only be siblings, but also FIRST cousins! (FYI: One of the sisters is having a girl and the other is having a boy.)In the clip, the twins briefly talked about their initial reaction to the news, with one sister (Nia) talking about how she felt bad when she found out she was pregnant, while her sister Nydia said she felt betrayed when she found out her sister was pregnant by the same guy. But they eventually got over it (obviously) and are ready to move forward.We’re not sure when this show/documentary will be released in full, but for now, you can check out a 60-second trailer below: is a post from:

It’s a wrap for “Power” after Season 6 premieres this August.The show’s executive producer Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson broke the news Thursday with a post on Instagram, but added that fans shouldn’t “trip” because there are a number of planned spinoffs in the pipeline.“Augs25 starts Season 6 is the final season of POWER,” 50 wrote. “I have 4 spin off shows coming so don’t trip. Starz”He also added in a comment that Power Season 6 will have a whopping 15 episodes, which is five more than what we’ve gotten from previous seasons. reports:The upcoming sixth season of the Courtney Kemp created and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson executive produced NYC underworld drama will be the last for the Starz series.However, the 15-episode August 25 premiering “The Final Betrayal” season won’t be the end of the dirty deeds for the premium cabler’s top offering as planned spinoffs are already in the pipeline.“We will follow some of your beloved Power characters beyond the scope of the initial series,” proclaimed EP Kemp today of the next phases in the world she fashioned. “But we will play with your expectations of which characters, where, and the master timeline of it all, creating a Power universe as unpredictable as the original.”Whispers of the Power spinoffs were first exclusively last October when Kemp inked a rich new overall deal with Starz’ parent company LionsgateThough there were no significant details of which characters from the Omari Hardwick, Naturi Naughton, Lela Loren and Joseph Sikora-led and Gary Lennon co-showrun Power are graduating to their own Starz series, we hear that a writers’ room has already been formed for at least one of the spinoffs.“Season 6 brings us to the end of what we know is just the first chapter of the Power story,” Starz programming boss Carmi Zlotnik said Thursday of the cabler’s clear crown jewel. “However, as one chapter comes to an end, another will begin. Courtney Kemp and 50 Cent have created a world rich with complex and dynamic characters and there are a number of stories we plan to tell as we continue to explore and expand the Power universe.”While we don’t know for sure yet what those new stories will be, we do know that the supersized Season 6, up 50% in episodes from Season 5, will see the Power directorial debut for 50 Cent with the third episode of the upcoming season.“The last 5 seasons of Power have been an incredible ride for me and all of our supportive fans,” stated the hip hop superstar, whose Kanan character was killed off last season.“We are far from over and I am excited to bring you more from the Power brand,” added Jackson today, perhaps hinting more Kanan could be coming as an offspring of his own overall deal with Starz. “I am proud that I was able to put a lasting stamp on this chapter with my directorial debut in an episode that features one of the wildest scenes ever on the show.”We’re sad to see Power go, but hey, at least we get 15 episodes this year! is a post from:

When he started to lose the game, Trice became angry and threw the controller, police said.Authorities said Trice then directed his anger to his innocent baby, hitting the child in the head with his fist, which caused serious physical injury.After hitting the child, police said Trice then picked the crying infant up in an attempt to soothe him, and while carrying him into the kitchen, Trice dropped the baby, then picked him and continued to the kitchen to make a bottle, .Investigators said Trice then brought the baby back into the bedroom, “propped him up in a seated position,” put a blanket in front of the baby and placed the bottle in his mouth.Trice then reportedly left the baby alone to use the bathroom. When Trice came back to the bedroom, he noticed the baby was distressed and called 911.Tanjia Howlett, De’Anthony’s maternal grandmother, Trice called the boy’s mother after he dropped him.“He was like, ‘Get to the hospital. The baby was throwing up milk. So, I told my daughter, ‘Why would he take the baby to the hospital for choking on baby milk?’,” she said.De’Anthony was rushed to Louisville’s Norton Children’s Hospital, where he clung to life for two days before dying of his injuries Sunday night (May 5).Anthony Trice was arrested Saturday and initially charged with first-degree criminal abuse. Police added a murder charge after the baby died Sunday.Trice pleaded not guilty to the murder and the first-degree criminal abuse charges in court Monday (May 6) and a judge raised his bond to $1,000,000 full cash—meaning he can’t pay 10% ($100K) to make bail.De’Anthony’s aunt, Ronika Tunstill, said she and her sister left the baby with Trice to go out for Derby weekend. Tunstill said before leaving Trice’s apartment, Trice talked about how excited he was about buying new clothes for his newborn son.“We were talking about the clothes that he got and what he was about to get him and stuff,” Tunstill said. “Everything was fine, like, they weren’t arguing. My sister and her boyfriend weren’t arguing or none of that.”To help cover De’Anthony’s funeral costs, his grandmother that has so far raised more than $3,000 of its $5,000 goal.A picture of De’Anthony on the page (above) shows him connected to several breathing tubes in the hospital.“We need your help,” the GoFundMe reads. “Some of you have seen on the news we were recently hit with a tragedy.

Kodak Black just dropped an insane amount of cash on a pacifier covered in diamonds.TMZ reports the “ZEZE” rapper spent “a whopping $180,000” on a brand new diamond necklace and matching diamond pendant in the shape of a pacifier.Celebrity jeweler Eliantte told the gossip site the pacifier charm hangs from a Hermes link chain and the entire necklace features 98 carats of blue and white diamonds.Eliantte said he and Kodak have been collaborating on the piece for a few years and he’s finally able to the finished product.I mean, it looks cool, but that’s about it.It’s hard to see the purpose behind someone wearing an iced out pacifier around their neck, but to each his own, I guess.Kodak’s lavish purchase comes right after it was reported that the rapper gave a generous donation of $12,000 to help low-income students purchase school supplies. is a post from:

Remember that wild tale about the twin sisters who got pregnant by the same guy? Well, one of them is speaking out and telling her side of the story, and it sounds nothing like the original version.PREVIOUSLY: You remember the story: A man named Keonyae met twin sisters Nia and Nydia at a gym where he’s a personal trainer, and somehow ended up just a month apart from each other.Keonyae told The Shade Room all parties involved were OK with the situation and have been living happily as a “throuple” as they wait for the babies to arrive.He even posted on Instagram: “I bet [I’m] the only n***a y’all know wit twin baby mommas and both kool wit it.”But according to one of the sisters, that couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, there’s a lot more to the story than what Keonyae originally revealed.A screenshot showing Nydia venting on a Facebook group called “Mommy & Me” has been floating around social media, and she spilled ALL the tea about the “situationship” between herself, her baby daddy and her sister.According to Nydia, when Keonyae bragged on social media about getting twin sisters pregnant, he left out a number of key details, including the fact that he already has kids and is still “dating” his baby mama.Even worse, Nydia said she didn’t find out her sister had also gotten pregnant by Keonyae until just a little over a month ago.“I just found out April 1st that while him and his other [baby mama] were dating he got my sister pregnant as well and that she is due a month after me,” Nydia shared. “When I found out it hurt me. Alot,” she added. “Can’t even be excited to be an aunt.”Nydia went on to say that her sister wants to give her baby for adoption “so we can have a normal life,” and Keonyae wants to keep the baby, but “me and her feel like he ruined that chance when he wanna make it seem like we in a polygamy relationship.”“I would never f**k on the same n***a as my sister,” she said. “Just gross.”Nydia said that she’s now having to worry about a DCFS investigation due to Keonyae’s clout-chasing on social media, and he also caused her to get arrested just days before her due date.Read Nydia’s entire post below: is a post from:

Brooklyn Nets star D’Angelo Russell was cited for marijuana possession in New York Wednesday night (May 1) at LaGuardia Airport after TSA officers reportedly found marijuana hidden inside a made to look like an Arizona Iced Tea can in his luggage.According to :DLo’s luggage was searched before his flight to Louisville took off from LaGuardia airport around 7 PM … when a suspicious can of Arizona Iced Tea flagged the system.As it turns out, it wasn’t just an ordinary can of tea — it was one of those “cans” that actually has a secret compartment people use to hide their drugs (y’all stoners know what we’re talking about).We’re told there was more weed found in a grinder inside the fake can as well.Law enforcement sources tell us Russell initially tried to say the weed belonged to his brother, but he was alone and in possession of the bag.TMZ Sports has learned that Russell was cited for possession of marijuana (under 50 grams) … and was allowed to leave. We’re told the summons usually results in the defendant paying a fine.The Brooklyn Nets released a statement Thursday afternoon, saying, “We have been made aware of the situation involving D’Angelo Russell and are in the process of gathering more information at this time.”Gotsta be mo careful!Fortunately for D’Lo though … this little incident won’t affect his value as a free agent, and the Nets still plan to offer him a deal to extend his contract before he officially hits the market on July 1st.“It’s not an issue,” a league source . “I’ve had a cell phone ticket that was more [costly].” is a post from:

If you haven’t seen “Avengers: Endgame” by this Monday (May 6), be prepared for spoilers, because the film’s director says everything after then is “fair game.”“Avengers: Endgame”—the sequel to “Avengers: Infinity War” and the culmination of 21 feature films and 11 years of production—officially opened in theaters worldwide last weekend.Joe Russo—one half of the Russo Brothers director team— and talked about how happy he was with how fans (some, ) have made sure not to reveal spoilers on social media and anywhere else.RELATED: But he made it a point to mention that it’s OK for people to talk about the movie’s plot in detail after this weekend.“I think people have really been treating us with a lot of integrity,” Russo said while walking through Manhattan Thursday (May 4).“We’re really happy. We’ve just asked everybody to hold spoilers until this Monday. After this Monday, it’s fair game because everybody’s had two weekends to see it and I think people want to start talking about the movie.”“Endgame” had the biggest global opening in film history with an unprecedented $1.2 billion opening its first weekend in theaters, which included a record $357 million opening weekend in North America.Impressively … those numbers don’t even include the money the film earned last Thursday (Apr. 25). If you combine Thursday’s revenue and the revenue generated during the first weekend, “Avengers: Endgame” earned nearly $1.8 billion worldwide its first few days out.The film, which stars Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man along with a slew of other Marvel heroes, is also now on track to have the highest-grossing second weekend in North American history.In case you didn’t know, the record for the biggest second weekend is owned by “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” which made $149 million domestically its second weekend out in 2015, according to Comscore.But early estimates Friday (May 3) showed that “Endgame” will definitely top that, with $175 million reported in North America so far (not including Saturday and Sunday).FYI: “Avengers: Endgame” ($1.8 billion) is already the fifth highest grossing movie of all time, behind last year’s “Infinity War” ($2.05B), 2015’s “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” ($2.07B), 1997’s “Titanic” ($2.2B) and the highest grossing film ever, 2009’s “Avatar” ($2.8B). is a post from:

A Houston senior is making history at his prestigious private school. He just became the in the school’s 119-year history.Kellin McGowan is St. Thomas High School’s 2019 valedictorian, earning the honor with a 4.57 grade point average.“It was a mixture of ‘Yes I did it’ and ‘Wow, mind blown’. I’m excited,” Kellin said.“Kellin has always been an academic stud. Just an all-around great kid,” Principal Aaron Dominguez told Fox26. “I’m super proud of you,” he told Kellin in the halls of St. Thomas High.And becoming the first black valedictorian of the school is not lost on Kellin, either.“It’s surprising but I’m glad these barriers are being broken,” the 17-year-old added.St. Thomas High opened in 1900 and the first black student wasn’t enrolled into the early 1940s.Though it took nearly eight decades for Kellin’s history-making moment, he hopes it ushers in a new era for the school and society.“People have these misguided notions of what it means to be African American. I believe by seeing an African American do well in an institution like this, they can see there is more to us than what they think,” he said.In addition to being valedictorian, Kellin is a permanent member of the exclusive St. Thomas Club.Membership is only granted to students who maintain a 4.0 GPA for seven consecutive semesters. That’s certainly quite an achievement.Kellin is also the secretary of the National Honor Society, a member of the student council, and the recipient of the Albert R. Gaelens Award, which is given to students who exemplify the school”s motto: “Teach Me Goodness, Discipline and Knowledge.”Kellin’s English teacher even described him as a “superhero [with] a cloak of humility.”“We don’t have to know everything—that is God’s job. And Kellin McGowan is God’s superhero,” Mr. Darrel Yarbrough said.Kellin will attend the University of Chicago in the fall and major in political science. He has aspirations of becoming an immigration lawyer.“I’m looking at Immigration Law, because I just want to help people seeking better lives and I believe I can do so,” he said.Kellin McGowan’s advice to other students: “You can do anything that you set your mind to and don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do anything.”We congratulate you, Mr. McGowan. Black excellence. is a post from:

He has provided voices for such films as ‘Winnie the Pooh,’ ‘Lion King,'” and adds that “he has done over 250 voices.”She claims to have obtained two separate domestic violence restraining orders against the 66-year-old star, including after an incident on August 31, 2011, when she says Jim came over to her home and slapped her on the buttocks and forced himself on her in front of their 4-year-old daughter.“He later came up behind me,” she claims, “grabbed my arm, spun me around, and forcefully put his hand on the back of my neck and kissed me while holding me in place against the wall.”She says after the kiss, Jim asked if she could “see him leaking, because that’s what I make him do when he touches me.” Stephanie says she felt “humiliated and degraded” in front of their child, and allegedly reported the incident to the L.A. County Sheriff, who advised her to get a domestic violence restraining order.According to documents, Jim did not dispute the incident but remembers it differently than his ex. The Disney star said he was “joking and laughing” with Stephanie, and then “I touched her slightly on the butt.” He says Stephanie gave him a consensual hug and says “the whole incident was happy.” He added that his ex-wife, “who is much taller than I am, and a large woman, made no objection to anything.”Stephanie also claims that she was raped by Jim in 2013, and allegedly filed a police report over the incident but did not give more detail. In open court testimony, Stephanie describes how she entered rehab after the rape for “co-dependency” and Jim showed up to the facility unannounced and was asked to leave.She claims that Jim would frequently “without consent, would touch my buttocks, my groin, and my breasts. He would hold me in place attempting to kiss and fondle me. He would spank me in front of our daughters. He would then follow up by making sexual comments to me that I found repugnant.”Of all the inappropriate comments he allegedly made to the former couple’s daughters, Stephanie claims Jim commented that he was allowed to “touch Mommy’s breasts since he had paid for them.” Stephanie broke down in tears on the stand while recalling some of the comments made to her by Cummings.In documents, Jim addressed the situation, writing in an email to Stephanie, “Shame on you, you’re [sic] distortions are obscene. ‘forcing’? Please, everyone, Gracie myself and especially YOU were all giggling and laughing, it was pleasant to have one moment of light-heartedness. We both erupted into laughter…I’m hardly the first person in the world to point out one ‘catches more flys [sic] with honey than vinegar’ for you to overlay a reference to being a whore is little too telling, Let’s get this over with for the love of God.”The ex-couple has also been fighting for custody and support payments and, in legal documents, Stephanie claims Jim would withhold payments of support and “demand sex from me in exchange for meeting his support obligations.”In 2015, she claims Jim showed up to her home and confronted her while on a date with an off-duty police officer, and the man was forced to pull his gun to make Jim leave the scene.Stephanie says the constant harassment from Jim resulted in a decline in her health, so in 2017, she moved to Utah with their two daughters.During a visit to see the children, she claims Jim asked to stay at the house and she allowed it. However, during the middle of the night, she claims Jim was “standing over me with his erect penis in my hand. He was using my hand to stroke his penis while my youngest daughter was asleep on the other side of me. She was 10 years old at the time.”Stephanie explained, “I told him to stop and get out of the house. He refused. He then came back and did the same thing, insisting I masturbate him or he would wake Lulu up. I did as he asked given his threat to wake up my daughter and my worry that I could not control what he would do in front of her.”After that incident, Stephanie says she obtained the second restraining order against Jim, which was filed in Utah. In 2018, both Stephanie and Jim testified in court and the restraining order was issued against Jim for two years.Stephanie also said Jim has had longstanding history of drug abuse, stating in court documents, “The primary reason James and I separated was his abuse of alcohol, marijuana, and Adderall.”Stephanie said during one particular rehab stint in 2010 (his second that year alone), he was kicked out after just five days after he was caught abusing Adderall.Stephanie claims after she and Jim split, between 2012 and 2018, he showed up at her house multiple times “uninvited while intoxicated or high on Adderall.”Stephanie also accused Jim of once abusing the family puppy to the point where it almost died.She said when the newly purchased puppy urinated in the house, Jim “took the dog and placed it inside a metal bucket outside of the house on a day which it was over 100 degrees, then left it there for a long time,” adding, “The dog came close to dying.”Jim acknowledged in court documents that he put the dog in a “tub” as a form of discipline and then forgot it was there “for a while,” but claimed the pet was ultimately fine.Stephanie said in another incident, Jim had “taken a broom and hit the puppy so hard that he shattered the puppy’s hip necessitating surgery.”Stephanie is fighting for full custody of her daughters because she believes their lives are in danger around Jim, who she says is a “much smaller version of Harvey Weinstein” and needs help for his alleged addictions.Stephanie also testified in court that Jim currently lives with a former sex worker.“Winnie the Pooh lives with a whore, pays a whore to pretend to be his girlfriend, rapes and abuses the mother of his kids,” she said, adding that Jim has tried to get her to “kill herself” and has also referred to their daughters as “n-word babies.”Meanwhile, Jim claims Stephanie has previously threatened to ruin his celebrated career, once allegedly telling him, “I will go and I will ruin your reputation … I am going to tell people Winnie the Pooh is a woman beating, drug addicted freak!”Jim said the recent alleged outburst came after he refused to take Stephanie to the premiere of the Disney movie “Christopher Robin” in 2018. is a post from:

Facebook announced Thursday (May 2) that it has banned a number of “dangerous” high-profile figures—including Louis Farrakhan, Alex Jones, and Milo Yiannopoulos—from using its platform and network of apps and services.Farrakhan leads the Nation of Islam, which is considered a hate group, and he’s notorious for using anti-Semitic language.Facebook is trying to rid its platform of fake news and hate speech, and Farrakhan, a “dangerous individual,” according to Facebook, falls into at least one of those categories.Farrakhan’s personal and professional profiles have been deleted, along with the social media pages of his religious organization across Facebook’s apps, including Instagram and WhatsApp.Right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and his media outlet InfoWars were previously been banned from Facebook back in August 2018, but Jones kept his Instagram pages active. Facebook said they will now be deleting his Instagram accounts, leaving him with no social media presence.Other “dangerous individuals” banned by Facebook Thursday included Paul Nehlen—an anti-Semite who unsuccessfully ran for Congress in 2016 and 2018—and right-wing media personalities Laura Loomer, Milo Yiannopoulos and Paul Joseph Watson.“We’ve always banned individuals or organizations that promote or engage in violence and hate, regardless of ideology,” a Facebook spokesperson . “The process for evaluating potential violators is extensive and it is what led us to our decision to remove these accounts today.” is a post from:

Offset is now a wanted man in the state of Georgia after a for the rapper Thursday morning (May 2).The warrant stems from the incident last Monday (Apr. 22) when Offset was shopping at a Target in Sandy Springs, Georgia and he smacked a fan’s phone out of his hand for attempting to record him as he exited the store.The fan, 18-year-old Junior Gibbons, said “What up Offset?” to which Offset replied “Get the f**k out of my face” and knocked the phone out of the Gibbons’ hand. The device then crashed to the ground and broke, shattering the screen.After his phone hit the ground, Junior claims Offset told him to get that “f**kin’ phone out of my face” and then walked out of the store.Junior says he went to the cops and on Friday (Apr. 26). His family said they didn’t want to pursue any charges against Offset, they just wanted the Migos rapper to replace the phone.After Offset refused to pay up, the felony arrest warrant was issued after police investigated.The reason why the warrant is a felony is that the phone costs $800 and police said Offset intentionally damaged the device.Offset was with his wife Cardi B last night at the 2019 Billboard Awards in Las Vegas. No word on whether or not he’s on his way to Georgia to turn himself in, but we’ll keep you updated. is a post from:

Remy Ma was released from jail Wednesday evening (May 1) after posting bail.Remy Wednesday afternoon on allegations she punched fellow Love & Hip Hop castmate Brittney Taylor in the face and at a concert venue last month—a whole new round of legal trouble for the 38-year-old rapper who is still on parole from a 2007 shooting.Taylor, who reported the incident the next day, suffered bruising to her right eye and was treated at a hospital.“This arrest demonstrates how serious this matter is—it is real life and not reality TV entertainment,” Taylor’s lawyer, Sanford Rubenstein, said in a statement. He added that Taylor “has confidence in our system of justice and will continue to fully cooperate with the authorities.”Remy was on misdemeanor assault and harassment charges Wednesday and allowed to post $1,500 bail.Remy’s lawyer, Dawn Florio, called the allegations false, saying that the rapper was at home nursing her 4-month-old daughter at the time of the alleged attack.Florio said that while Remy did attend the concert at Irving Plaza that night, she was home by 9:30 p.m., the time a criminal complaint states the attack allegedly happened.Florio said a number of witnesses who were at the venue will vouch that Remy “had absolutely nothing to do with this incident,” and he also has video proof that Remy was at home when the alleged incident occurred.Taylor “is a liar, and my client did not touch her,” Florio said.Remy Ma, whose real name is Reminisce Mackie (née Smith), served six years in prison for shooting her (now former) friend, Makeda Barnes-Joseph, in the stomach outside a Manhattan nightclub in 2007 after Remy accused Joseph of stealing $1,000 from her purse.At the time, Remy’s defense said the gun “accidentally” went off during a struggle between the two women.Remy was released in 2014 and was still on parole until August 1st when she allegedly attacked Taylor last month.The new allegations pushed Remy’s parole officers to tighten the conditions of her parole, including requiring her to wear an ankle monitor (as seen in those last week) and putting her on an 8 p.m. curfew.The judge also issued a protective order for Taylor, which means that Remy must stay away from her and cannot have any contact with her.Remy, flanked by her husband Papoose, briefly spoke with TMZ cameras after she posted bail, saying that she was “OK,” but she refused to answer any questions about the case.Remy Ma is due back in court on May 24th. is a post from:
