Rumors

Malik Yoba has received much praise and support since admitting his love for all women, , to combat the stigma, shame, and bullying attached to straight men—specifically black men—dating transwomen in an Instagram post. But one transwoman took major issue with the former Empire star’s statement and the support he was receiving and accused him of for sex 20 years ago in New York City. “NYs Child Sex Abuse law means Malik will have to face the music. Sorry to burst a lot of folks bubbles,” Mariah Lopez Ebony wrote in a now-viral Facebook post on Sunday (Sep. 1). Ebony alleged that Yoba paid her for sex when she was just 13 years old, and again when she was 16. She said Yoba specifically sought out black transgender minors. “[Yoba’s] admission to being sexually attracted to Trans women, is bound to open a Pandora’s box for him; not because the women are Trans, But because many of the Trans women he engaged in sexual exploration and exploitation with on 14th Street, Times Square and elsewhere, were minors. Including myself.” “What Malik paid me to do, as a 13 and 16-year-old, wasn’t love,” she continued, adding that “he knew what he was doing, was wrong.” She also said Yoba would beg for unprotected sex. Ebony also questioned Yoba’s true reasoning for publicly professing he love for transwomen. Yoba made his post in defense of transgender relationships, but Ebony believes someone was threatening to reveal his past with transgender prostitutes, forcing him to “come out.” “Where was his LOOOOOOOOVVVVEEE for Trans women over the last 20 years? Where are his Trans girlfriends? Something tells me I’m not the only one who got some dirt on this individual and, something also tells me that he didn’t just up-and-decide to ‘come out’, he was pushed. “Careful not to make a fool of yourself supporting him and his message. I am sure I am not the only trans person who was a minor when Malik Yoba first ‘loved’ them.” Yoba admitted his sexual attraction to transwomen last week in response to the suicide of , a 20-year-old black man who was seen being bullied for dating a transwoman in a viral video. “ATTENTION BLACK AND ALL MEN!!! THIS IS NOT OK!!!!! This video is another heartbreaking example of the homophobia, transphobia hatred and hypocrisy,” Yoba wrote. “WE as black folks, BLACK MEN in particular have to NAME , FACE and CALL OUT and do the work to heal!!!” Yoba continued: “I love ALL women AND count MYSELF among those that find themselves trans attracted and I too have felt the self imposed shame that comes with that truth but it’s time to speak up. It is NOT about GENITALIA OR SEX but about attraction to the soul and humanity of an individual and often the beauty that is in the courage and conviction to live ones truth!” Malik Yoba has yet to address the claims made by Mariah Lopez Ebony. is a post from:

Jail has to be like one of the worst places in the world a person can go. Nothing about it is good and I wouldn’t wish it on a soul. So it comes as no surprise when you hear stories about inmates trying to escape from jail and their successful and unsuccessful attempts at it. However, a recent report about a Brazil gang leader who dressed up as his own daughter when she came to visit him and planned on leaving his daughter behind in the jail is one of the craziest things I’ve heard thus far. According to , Clauvino da Silva (who is also known as “Shorty”) was caught by authorities trying to break out of the Gericinó prison in Rio de Janeiro dressed like a woman. “The reputed crime boss was allegedly wearing a pink t-shirt with a cartoon image of donuts, a black wig, silicon mask and tight jeans to conceal his identity. A video released by authorities appears to show him removing the mask and some of the clothes and saying his full name.” Authorities said Silva’s daughter came to visit him at the prison and Silva dressed himself to look identical to his daughter. Silva’s plan was to trick guards to think he was his daughter and to leave his daughter at the prison. His escape attempt was almost successful until authorities noticed him acting extremely nervous, which immediately gave away his disguise. The convicted drug dealer’s amazing get-up was so convincing prison staff only stopped him at the end of visiting time because he started acting too nervously, authorities told the Now authorities are investigating if Silva’s daughter was an accomplice in his escape attempt. Silva is said to be a part of the leadership of the Red Command, one of the most powerful criminal groups in Brazil that controlled drug trafficking in a large part of Rio. Since the incident, Silva was transferred to a special unit of a maximum-security prison and will face disciplinary action.

An off-duty soldier is being hailed as a hero after he saved the lives of several children during Saturday’s mass shooting at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas. Army PFC Glendon Oakley Jr., a 22-year-old automated logistical specialist assigned stationed at Fort Bliss, was among the hundreds of customers shopping at the Cielo Vista Mall in El Paso when a gunman opened fire at a nearby Walmart. SEE NEXT: At least 20 people were killed and dozens more were wounded in the shooting. The suspected shooter has been identified as a 21-year-old Dallas man named , an apparent Trump supporter who allegedly wrote in an anti-immigrant manifesto that he was against “race mixing.” Crusius was taken into custody at the scene without incident, police said. Glendon Oakley—who just came home from a tour in Kuwait about four months ago—says he was shopping at a sporting goods store inside the mall when a young child ran into the store shouting about an active shooter at Walmart. He said he didn’t believe the kid at first, but when he exited that store and started walking towards the neighboring Foot Locker, that’s when he heard the gunfire with his own ears. “I got my license to carry so I pulled my gun out,” Oakley told . “I just started to hide.” The Foot Locker closed the gates in front of the store’s entrance as a precaution, Oakley said, but terrified shoppers forced their way inside. Eventually, everyone decided to make a run for the mall exits, and Oakley followed behind as an impromptu rear guard for the group. As Oakley and the others were running to safety, they came across a group of about a dozen or so children in one of the mall’s open play areas screaming for their parents. Oakley said he tried to get other fleeing bystanders to help, but none of them would stop. “I didn’t even think. I just grabbed as many kids as I could and ran five stores down to the exit,” he . “We got there and ran into a whole batch of police pointing their guns at us. I wasn’t focused on myself, and I wasn’t focused on my surroundings … I was just focused on those kids.” Oakley said the police stopped him because he had a weapon, but they let him go after he proved he had the proper permit to carry it. Despite his military training, Oakley said he was “scared for [his] life,” but he couldn’t help but think about the children first. “I was worried about those kids, man,” he told KTSM. “I wasn’t even worried about myself.” Oakley said he wished more people would have helped him save more children. “I heard four kids died,” he said. “I wish I could have gotten more kids out of there. I wish those guys who ran would have stayed … I just think, what if that was my child? How would I want some other man to react?” After a pause, he said: “I wish they had some sense of service.” is a post from:

The sad fate of Jason Mitchell’s character on The Chi has been revealed. We reported back in May that from the Showtime series following multiple allegations of sexual harassment. Now, it has been revealed that the actor’s character on the show, Brandon Johnson, will be killed off sometime in Season 3. Gary Levine, Showtime’s co-president of entertainment, spilled the tea Friday (Aug. 2) during the Television Critics Association Press Tour. “There is a lot of great life in ‘The Chi’ and there’s also death in ‘The Chi’ and that’s how we’ll be dealing with it,” Levine said (). Actress Tiffany Boone—who starred alongside Mitchell as his character Brandon’s girlfriend Jerrika—was the to producers that Mitchell was sexually harassing her. She said she felt unsafe filming scenes with him, and things reportedly got so bad that she had to bring in her fiancé, Dear White People actor Marque Richardson, to be on set with her whenever she had to work directly with Mitchell. Other women on the set also with Mitchell, including other actresses and new showrunner Ayanna Floyd, who joined the show for Season 2. Floyd said in a statement that “everyone was well aware of [Mitchell’s] behavior,” including creator/executive producer Lena Waithe. In an with “The Breakfast Club” following Mitchell’s firing, Waithe said she was first alerted to the allegations against Mitchell after The Chi‘s first season concluded. She said sexual harassment training classes were held on set, and she went out of her way to call Mitchell personally to confront him directly over the allegations. Waithe said that everyone involved handled the situation through HR, and everyone agreed to return for Season 2, however, Mitchell’s questionable behavior continued. “There was definitely a conversation where I called him and got really real,” she said, adding that the actor never acted inappropriately towards her. “‘You need to be respectful of any woman on set. You need to be respectful of everybody,’ she said she told Mitchell. “‘Don’t treat any woman differently the way you would treat me.'” Waithe said she wishes she “would’ve handled the situation differently.” Mitchell also faced allegations back in 2016, following his breakout role as Eazy-E in the NWA biopic Straight Outta Compton. An 18-year-old woman during a party at a hotel. As a result of the latest allegations, not only was Mitchell fired from The Chi, but he was also dropped by his talent agency and management team. He also lost his starring role alongside Anna Camp in the Netflix movie “Desperado” and was replaced by New Girl actor Lamorne Morris. On top of that, MTV rescinded his 2019 MTV Movie and TV Awards nomination for the “Best Performance in a Show” category for his work on The Chi.

The Wendy Williams Show just wrapped its tumultuous 10th season. And while the show will be back for season 11, it’s likely that it will be the last one. A source that given Wendy Williams’ personal issues and health concerns, many of the staffers believe it’s time to move on and don’t anticipate the show being renewed past the 2019-2020 season. “This was an extremely difficult season to get through for the staff and Wendy herself, obviously. With the show’s renewal set to end after the 2019-2020 season, everyone thinks it’s the perfect time to say goodbye move on. “Wendy has enough going on as it is and honestly no one, including Wendy, is sure she can even make it through season 11. Not to mention, advertisers consider her to be a ‘risk’ due to her unplanned hiatuses and extended breaks. It’s very likely the show won’t be back.” During what should have been a celebration of the milestone 10th season, the past year has been “hell” as Williams herself described it on the last episode of the season. The host fractured her shoulder, slurred her words on-camera, had to take an extended two-month-long hiatus due to Graves’ Disease, for addiction treatment, and it all culminated in Williams from cheating husband/manager Kevin Hunter, which has all played out in the tabloids. “This season has been, well, hell for me,” Williams admitted on the season finale. “I appreciate doing this show because it’s my one hour where I get to be fun and forget about stuff,” she continued. “But through it all, my one joy—aside from my son and my family—is you. I’m not doing this show forever, but I will certainly be back for season 11.” In addition to B. Scott’s source and Williams’ “not doing the show forever” comment, Page Six is also reporting that some of the Wendy show staffers are already . A source revealed: “They are all well aware that all they have is Season 11 left, that’s guaranteed, but until [production company] Debmar-Mercury announces that they are renewing additional seasons beyond the next season, some staff have begun searching for jobs.” A spokesperson for the show offered a spin, simply stating: “Wendy and her staff are closer than ever.” However, the statement did not mention the show’s future past season 11. Season 11 of The Wendy Williams Show premieres September 16. is a post from:

The never-ending saga of Robert Sylvester Kelly’s court woes in relation to his pedophilia is like a daytime soap opera that you pray will just get canceled and go away, but it keeps on getting renewed season after season. Last time we checked in with R. Kelly, for sex trafficking and sex with a minor. Most of us thought this was the final countdown for Robert because once the feds get ya, it’s usually a wrap. But Robert seems to think his old-ass shenanigans, like the he threw in front of Gayle King, will work to convince the federal judge who already his trifling ass bail. According to , R. Kelly’s attorneys pleaded on behalf of their client to have the judge reconsider his decision to deny him the opportunity to post bond. He also threw in that he would avoid contact with minors. According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Kelly is asking the judge to reconsider the decision denying him bond in his federal case out of the Eastern District of Illinois. The disgraced singer is trying to argue that he is not a flight risk due to his lack of resources, aka he’s broke. Kelly’s legal team states, “Mr. Kelly no longer has the money or the entourage he once did to help him in his endeavors.” The R&B star is willing to submit to electronic monitoring and home incarceration. He offers terms that would include no contact with minors and limited access to the Internet, which his team says will, “make it virtually impossible to attempt to contact any witnesses without being caught.” I mean, the fact that he’s willingly asking for an ankle bracelet is impressive, but Robert has to realize that after 20 years of getting charged, locked up and tried for having inappropriate contact with minors, it’s gonna take more than just his word to convince a judge that he’s really gonna leave these little girls alone this time. is a post from:

A kidnapping investigation quickly turned into a homicide investigation after Los Angeles police were made aware of video footage showing a man accused of kidnapping his missing girlfriend rapping about killing her and burying her body. that a video filmed early Tuesday morning (Jul. 30) just hours before 27-year-old Monrovia kidnapping suspect Robert Anthony Camou was taken into police custody appears to show him participating in an open mic event at a local bar. “I killed my b*tch and buried that b*tch in the f**king dirt,” Camou rapped about his girlfriend, 31-year-old Amanda Kathleen Custer, who had been missing since Monday. He then mumbled a few words about being “out” because the cops are looking for him before walking out of the view of the camera. The people around him were visibly disturbed. Police said they were aware of the video’s existence and were trying to get ahold of the original footage to make sure it hasn’t been edited. “We want to make sure it’s unedited,” Deputy Trina Schrader, a spokeswoman for the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department, . “If it’s edited, then in court people can poke holes in it.” The man who recorded the video told reporters he had no idea who he was filming until he saw Camou on TV being arrested the next day. “At first it was like, did he say that? He said that. And he said it with such force,” Michael R. Moore . Moore said when Camou noticed he was being recorded, he stepped forward and stared straight into the camera. He said everyone in the bar was frozen with shock. “I think that everyone in the bar that heard him kinda stopped. Time just stopped. And there were some hardcore rappers up in there, and they stopped,” Moore said. Moore said after walking off the stage, Camou came up to him and asked him where he was going to post the video. Moore said he told Camou he would be sharing it across all of his social media accounts, and Camou was, oddly, OK with it. “He said that was cool,” Moore said. Robert Camou became the subject of a kidnapping investigation Monday (Jul. 29) when police found blood in his home in Monrovia after responding to a domestic violence call. Camou’s girlfriend, Amanda Custer, was nowhere to be found. Investigators believe Camou assaulted Custer and took her from the home against her will. A witness told police they saw Camou putting Custer’s limp body in the cargo hatch of his Toyota Prius early Monday morning. It was the last time she was seen alive. Camou was arrested Tuesday morning following a five-hour standoff in which he remained in the backseat of his vehicle. Police said Camou didn’t exit the vehicle until after they shot tear gas into the car. Authorities said Camou was scheduled to appear in court the day Custer went missing for charges related to an April 22nd incident, but he never showed up. He had also previously been charged with four felony counts, including burglary and assault and battery, per court documents filed on May 29th. At the time Custer went missing, police said Camou was out on bail on domestic violence charges, and the victim in that case is also Amanda Custer (pictured below). Police said Custer and Camou had been dating for the past two years, and throughout the course of their relationship, there were numerous allegations of domestic violence. A restraining order filed by Custer back in February detailed Camou’s alleged obsessive behavior. “He has made over 100 (phone) numbers to verbally bash me,” Custer said at the time. She also described an uninvited visit to her home by Camou: “He turned around, came running at my window, and broke my double-pane window with the hatchet.” Camou remains in police custody without bail on domestic violence charges and an unrelated burglary charge. is a post from:

A popular lesbian couple has left family and friends in shock after they died just days apart—one from complications related to cancer, the other from suicide. Giovanni Doll a.k.a. GigiBaby and Jay Dor (names they go by on Facebook) were both from Detroit and have the whole social media talking about their sad love story. Here are some things you need to know: Giovanni Doll died from complications related to cancer. It was revealed that Giovanni died in her sleep of health complications related to cancer in her sleep this past weekend. One of her close friends who goes by Mrz Lawson on Facebook posted about her death and how devastating it was for everyone who knew her. She wrote: “#Forever21 Damn This Shyt Crazy Not My Baby Gigi Giovanni Doll Not My Baby Renee Naw Man This Shyt Can’t Be I’m Devastated I’m Hurt I Haven’t Cried Like This Since My Mother Passed Away Like That’s Was Our Bae We Talked Bout Everything N Anything We Was Jus Hangin Wit U On Saturday At #PalmerParkPride U Rode Wit Us N We Had A Good Time Its Always Laughs When We Get Around Eachother Wen U Got Out We Was Jus Having a Deep Good Convo We Was Laughing N Shyt U My B’day Twin Y U Had To Go So Soon Baby Man I Can’t Believe This Shyt True I’M HEARTBROKEN U GON FOREVER B MISSED GIGI BABE.” Giovanni was loved by her many friends and family and it appears her death was a complete shocker to all who knew her. Giovanni and her girlfriend Jay Dor had broken up not long before Giovanni died. Giovanni and Jay Dor had broken up and were not on good terms before she died. According to posts from Jay Dor’s Facebook page, the two would often fight and call it quits, but always would eventually makeup and get back together. However, this time was different because Giovanni sadly died before they were able to reconcile. In one of her Facebook posts, Jay Dor spoke on a text message apparently behind their break-up that she found out was a lie. She said if she had known the text was a lie, her and Giovanni would have gotten back together. She also posted another video speaking on their relationship and its many ups and downs. She captioned the video: “She loved this shit here . Look at that smirk … I HATE WE HAD DOWN MOMENTS MAN IKNOW EVERYONE HAS THEM IN A RELATIONSHIP BUT I ALWAYS JUST WANTED YOU TO FEEL LIKE ME BUT IN THE SAME WAY I WANTED TO JUST LOVE YOU SO MUCH MORE THAN I COULD SHOW TRYNA BE A TOUGH PERSON AINT ALWAYS A GOOD THING NOW IM MISSING YOU SO MUCH.” In another video Jay Dor shared on her page she wrote: “Fought so much said so much bs to each other it whenever it was said and done we always made up baby.” Giovanni’s family did not want to have a candlelight vigil or balloon release in honor of her death. Jay Dor was planning on having a balloon release on her girlfriend Giovanni’s behalf, but it looks like it was canceled due to Giovanni’s mother’s wishes. One of Giovanni’s friends, Mrz Lawson, posted a text message thread in which Giovanni’s mother told her she wasn’t having a candlelight vigil or balloon release, but would keep everyone informed on when the funeral was. Another one of Giovanni’s friends also confirmed this as well. Before taking her life, Jay Dor spoke on people having an issue with her doing a balloon release for Giovanni and how Giovanni’s mother gave her the approval, but just wouldn’t be in attendance. Jay Dor took her own life days after Giovanni died. Following Giovanni’s death, Jay Dor posted several messages and videos showing how distraught she was over her death and the fact that they were broken up when it happened. On Monday (Jul. 29), Jay Dor posted a video on her page in which she broke down into tears and spoke on how hard it was for her to deal with Giovanni’s death. She also spoke on Giovanni helping her get her own house and how she tried to call her days before she died to make amends, but her phone was broken. Jay Dor continued to post on her page about Giovanni’s death and how badly it was affecting over the next few days. She wrote in one particularly alarming message: “Dawg I feel like I’m dying giiiiiiiio baby dawg I’m fucking hurting dawg I’m hurt I’m so fuckn hurt.” Then things took a turn for the worse when Jay Dor began posting messages hinting that she was going to take her own life. “Baby save room for me,” she wrote in one post. “I promise I’m coming for you.” She shared in another: “I’m scared I’m not about to lie but I still gotta get to you.” Jay Dor’s friends commented on her posts and begged her not do anything to harm herself, but that didn’t stop her from posting about her suicidal thoughts. “The pain I have behind these will soon be over like I have a sense of excitement because we gone be together again !!!!!!,” she wrote in one of her last posts. She followed that post with a farewell message naming close family members and telling them how much she loved them. She also posted another video speaking on reuniting with Giovanni. And a collage of their photos and videos together with the caption: “Baby I’m coming. True love”. In the final video posted on her page, Jay Dor said she simply couldn’t take the pain anymore. Below are her last two posts before she took her life. According to several sources, Jay Dor died by suicide after she jumped off a bridge into the Detroit River while on Facebook Live. Below is said to be the video she posted on Facebook Live before taking her life. In the video (which has since been deleted), Jay Dor reveals to viewers that she is about to kill herself. The clip disturbingly ends not long after Jay Dor appears to jump off the bridge. Jay Dor’s sister posted on Facebook hours before her suicide asking friends and family to keep her in their prayers. Jay Dor’s sister Kahlia Verner was concerned about her sister and knew that she was hurting deeply. She posted the following message on her page asking for everyone to keep her sister in her prayers as well as Giovanni’s family. Days before, she also posted a message speaking on how she knew her sister was going to deeply miss Giovanni. is a post from:

The Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta reunion concluded earlier this week and the mother of Kirk Frost’s baby outside of his marriage to Rasheeda was nowhere to be seen. But that didn’t stop Jasmine Washington from saying what she needed to say. LHHATL Season 8 focused on Kirk and Rasheeda attempting to build a relationship with 3-year-old Kannon, the son Kirk had with Jasmine after cheating on Rasheeda. During the reunion, the still-married couple shamed Jasmine for expecting too much from Kirk, even though Jasmine wasn’t there to defend herself. “I think she expects me to be there like she was in a relationship,” Kirk said. “And she gotta understand, it was something different, and you chose to move forward with the situation, and you gotta kind of deal with it.” Rasheeda co-signed with her husband of 20 years, blasting Jasmine for choosing to have a baby with a married man, as if Kirk had no part in creating little Kannon. “You had a child with a married man and a family. He’s not gonna change his structure for you,” she said. “He never made you think that sh*t from the beginning! So don’t think now that that child is in place that everything is gonna change. It’s not.” Jasmine—who says she was uninvited to the reunion—took to social media to tell her side of the story. In the now-deleted post, she said she doesn’t ask for much and called Kirk and Rasheeda “TV parents” who barely see her son and only used him for a storyline. “I was told I was uninvited to do the reunion bc I no longer allowed these 2 to film with my son & act as if they really be spending time with him in real life,” she wrote. “They are tv parents. I expect Kirk to be there like a f-king father. Let’s start there. I dnt ask for much! But surely you can take out an hour of your ‘busy schedule’ to see him for his bday or pick him up for example. “Damn, maybe even a 30sec phone call from your daughter’s phone to wish him a happy bday? Is that me wanting y’all to change your ‘structure?’?? Is that me expecting you to be there like we’re in a relationship?? “Not 1 of y’all wished him a happy bday but act so concerned about everything else when the cameras rolling. I dnt even gaf that sis wants to hold me more accountable than her husband, but KANNON ain’t do sh-t to none of y’all.” A post shared by (@theshaderoom) on Jul 30, 2019 at 4:32pm PDT Jasmine went on to claim that Kirk and Rasheeda faked the scene that showed Rasheeda finding secret text messages from Jasmine on Kirk’s phone. She says she doesn’t even have Kirk’s number. Jasmine continued to paint Kirk as an absent father and vowed to continue standing up for her child with or without the cameras. “Don’t know what storyline world you live in but better believe having a child does change everything. Or should if you’re an active parent! Just say you want to continue making excuses for Kirk sis,” she wrote. “Y’all just trying to move on and live like Kannon doesn’t exist but he’s here and his mother is gonna fight for every bit of respect, love and appreciation he deserves. Now you may continue with your fake a- reality show that no longer cares about reality.” Neither Kirk nor Rasheeda have responded to Jasmine’s social media rant. is a post from:

Adding to the growing lists of things that one apparently cannot do while Black in America, a 10-year-old Black boy has been charged with assault after he was accused of hitting another student (yes, a white student) during an innocent game of dodgeball. Cameishi Lindley she was shocked to receive a phone call from Wayne County Juvenile Court last Wednesday (Jul. 24) about her 10-year-old son Bryce. Lindley said she was told her son had been charged with aggravated assault as a result of an April 29th incident at his school in which another boy had been hit in the face with a ball. Lindley described the game her son and the other children were playing at Ruth Eriksson Elementary School in Canton, Michigan as a modified version of dodgeball where players throw balls in the air. “These kids are basically playing a game we all have played,” she said. According to WXYZ, the mother of the child who was hit filed a police report and said Lindley’s son threw the ball at her son’s face on purpose. She told the news station son has a medical condition that makes head injuries particularly dangerous. “He sustained facial tissue damage to his face. He had a black eye and a bruised nose,” the mother of the struck boy said. Medical records also showed the boy suffered a concussion. She said her son has been targeted before, and she reported it to the school in mid-April, prior to the April 29th incident. “My son was hit twice in the face with a ball previously due to this,” the White kid’s mom told WXYZ. “The child apologized to my son and my son said ‘mom it’s okay we’re still going to be friends’.” She said the April 29th incident was the last straw, and at that point, she feared for her child’s safety. “I tried not to let it get to this point,” she said. Lindley told 7 Action News that neither she nor her son were aware of the other child’s medical condition, and she’s sorry he was hurt, but she feels as though he shouldn’t have been allowed to play a game like that in the first place if he has a serious medical condition. “I am unaware of any of those situations,” Lindley said. “I’m sorry that her child got hurt. I’d be sorry for any child that got hurt.” Lindley said her son was suspended from school for a day and she feels as though his punishment should have ended there. “I couldn’t believe it,” she said of Bryce’s assault charge. “This is a kid that was playing on the playground with his friends.” The case will go before a judge in Juvenile Court on Thursday (Aug. 1) for a pre-trial conference, WXYZ reports. Meanwhile, Lindley has to assist with Bryce’s legal fees. So far, it has raised more than $15,000. is a post from:

It’s almost official: Keke Palmer is set to join ABC talk show Strahan and Sara as a permanent third co-host. Page Six is exclusively reporting that Palmer is “,” which may be finalized by the end of this week. “ABC execs are close to finalizing a deal,” a source told the site. “She’s fun, spontaneous and has great energy.” PREVIOUSLY: Palmer has been guest co-hosting the show with Michael Strahan and Sara Haines all summer long, including while Haines was on maternity leave. Haines returned just last week. “Keke has been so much fun filling in, so they decided to make her an offer,” said the insider. “The audience knows her and she’s got great chemistry with both [hosts]. We previously reported that ABC execs were so and chemistry with the hosts, that they were trying to find a permanent role for her within the Good Morning America franchise. However, it was only rumored at that time. The source added the hope is that Palmer—who turns 26 next month—will attract younger viewers and help with the show’s struggling ratings. Strahan and Sara premiered last year as GMA Day, an afternoon spinoff to Good Morning America. It was revamped to its current format and name in January. Unfortunately, it has still failed to even match the ratings of canceled popular cooking show The Chew, which it replaced. It’s unknown if the show will underdo yet another name change to include Palmer’s name once she officially comes onboard. is a post from:

Kenya Moore’s ex-boyfriend Matt Jordan is still abusive. Jordan has been arrested for allegedly punching his girlfriend in the face. According to TMZ, Jordan was arrested Saturday (Jul. 27) in Arizona after Valerie Bell in the face in a Denny’s parking lot. A second woman witnessed the physical altercation. Jordan was also taken into custody for several other separate charges, including aggravated assault, theft, and threatening/intimidating with damage to property. Jordan was arrested without incident and is being held in Pinal County with bail set at $3,250. However, he still in custody because no one had posted the bail. Arrest documents detail the physical altercation with Bell. And the second woman/witness says that Jordan also snatched her cigarettes—one from her mouth and the pack from her hands—and attempted to throw them on the roof. He left the scene before cops could arrived, but went to Bell’s home a few hours later where he was ultimately arrested. Police discovered the former Real Housewives of Atlanta star also had an outstanding warrant against him from April. That’s when he was slapped with the additional charges of theft, assault, damage to property. It’s unclear what incident the April charges are connected to, but he failed to appear in court to deal with it them, which is why the warrant was issued. Jordan has had several run-ins with the law over the past few years and RHOA fans know that he has violent behavior. In 2017, Kenya Moore was against Jordan for harassing her by calling her 30 times a day and allegedly threatening her. He was also got into a with fellow former RHOA star Peter Thomas at a radio station that same year. Jordan claimed Thomas had a box cutter or knife during the brawl. The fight was caught on video. is a post from:

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:

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 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:
