Rumors

Teyana Taylor says she’s sick and tired of being “extremely mistreated” by Jeremih, so she announced Wednesday (Aug. 16) that she had pulled out of their co-headlining “Later That Night Tour,” which only kicked off two weeks ago on August 3rd.“I’ve been extremely mistreated on this tour so on that note I will NO longer continue to stay on the #LaterThatNightTour because if I do [I’m gonna] end up knocking this n***a out,” she tweeted. “I’m sorry to all who has already purchased tickets to see me I will make sure everyone gets refunded!”I’ve been extremely mistreated on this tour so on that note i will NO longer continue to stay on the because if I do ima end up knocking this nigga out. I’m sorry to all who has already purchased tickets to see me I will make sure everyone gets refunded! ??— TEYANA M.J. SHUMPERT (@TEYANATAYLOR) Teyana didn’t mince words either as she explained why she couldn’t go on with the tour, tweeting directly at Jeremih: “Lazy, sneaky, jealous, conniving, [selfish], lame ass n—a! Don’t ever try to play me Petunia! They come to see me then 80% of the room leave after MY SET! [I] work my ass off every city, every night! You’ve done nothing this whole tour but act like a DIVA in ya princess chair.” Lazy, sneaky, jealous, conniving, selish, lame ass nigga! Don’t ever try to play me Petunia!

SHUMPERT (@TEYANATAYLOR) Teyana went into more detail on her Instagram story, accusing Jeremih of sabotaging her set and thanking her for opening for him while they were in Boston even though they were co-headlining the tour.The next day, in a hilarious plot twist, Taylor tweeted that Jeremih had been “removed” from the tour, an upcoming date in Toronto would be rescheduled, and she would be performing the remaining dates as a solo act and keeping Dani Leigh as her special guest.“#LaterThatNightTour will now be the #KTSEOnAlseVII TOUR,” she wrote on Twitter. “Toronto will be rescheduled for later this week & All other dates will remain the same. I will also keep @DaniLeigh on as my special guest. I promised y’all I would work it out regardless. #womenempowerment #LevelUp” will now be the TOUR. Toronto will be rescheduled for later this week & All other dates will remain the same. I will also keep on as my special guest ?? I promised y’all I would work it out regardless.?? — TEYANA M.J. SHUMPERT (@TEYANATAYLOR) After a fan asked for clarification about whether or not Jeremih was removed, Teyana confirmed: “He’s been removed from the tour.”He’s been removed from the tour.— TEYANA M.J. SHUMPERT (@TEYANATAYLOR) So, basically, homeboy got kicked off his own tour. Dayum.Aside from a , Jeremih remained mum on the beef, but he broke his silence today in an interview with Hot Rod from Power 92 Chicago.He denied Teyana’s allegations of him being a sneaky and conniving person and explained why most of the crowd leaves after Teyana’s set. According to Jeremih, Teyana would ask her fans to go backstage for the meet and greet, which would leave a very thin crowd for him.Jeremih also accused Taylor of exhibiting her own “diva” behavior when she allegedly “got mad over some chicken wings one night.” In the end, Jeremih said it’s “all love” and he has no problems with Teyana.Jeremih followed up with a tweet Friday night (Aug. 17), saying that he holds “no resentment or vengeance in [his] heart” despite him being “extremely pissed about the disrespectful comments and name calling” from Teyana.While I am extremely pissed about the disrespectful comments & name calling that has been made, I hold no resentment or vengeance in my heart. I am more disappointed for OUR fans.. nonetheless I must move forward but I wish Teyana & Dani nothing but the best. ????— Jeremih (@Jeremih) is a post from:

Well, that was fast! Popular YouTube personality Queen Naija just surprised her fans with big news on her latest video. She’s having a baby with her “friend” Clarence and she just got divorced four months ago.Queen built her following on YouTube by doing funny videos with her now ex-husband Chris Sails, and they split earlier this year after being married for years after he cheated on her multiple times.The couple, who have a young son together, divorced back in April. And after leaving Chris, Queen released a song called “Medicine” which has been doing fairly well on the radio and even charted on Billboard. Clarence played “Chris” in the video.In a , Queen said she felt as though her ex-husband was jealous of her singing career, and she also refused to call Clarence her boyfriend at the time because she didn’t feel like he deserved that title just yet.The pair were so low-key to the point where people were saying Clarence didn’t want to claim Queen or vice versa. Well, now Queen wants the world to know who the new love of her life is. She took to YouTube, of course, to announce that they’re expecting their first child together.“There’s one more thing we don’t want to hide from you guys,” Queen Naija said in the video. “Because we would feel that it’s unfair and it’s not something that should be hidden.” She then said she would let the next clip do the talking, and the next clip was a video of an ultrasound scan.Watch below around the 19:33 mark: is a post from:

After deciding to put her upcoming album Fantasea II: The Second Wave on hold after the Wildn’ Out debacle, it looks like Azealia Banks is back in the studio working on new music.And it seems like she’s doing whatever it takes to finish her collaboration with Canadian singer Grimes, even if that means waiting around the musician’s boyfriend Elon Musk’s home all by herself for days.The rapper and professional word vomiter said that’s exactly what she’s been doing in a message share shared to her Instagram story over the weekend.“Literally been sitting at Elon Musks waiting for Grimes to show up and start these sessions,” she wrote. “I have no idea when she is coming back. I’m going to wait one more day then I’m going to go home.”Later, she compared her stay at Musk’s house to Jordan Peele’s 2016 Oscar-winning movie “Get Out.” She wrote: “Staying at Elon Musk’s house has been like a real [life] episode of ‘Get Out'”She then went on one of her signature rants full of slurs and TMI, suggesting Grimes and Musk wanted to have a threesome with her and calling them both “crackheads” and Musk a “trash a** beta male pig.”She also accused Musk’s family of profiting from mining emerald and ore in southern Africa during apartheid, called him ugly said he was on the Down Syndrome spectrum. Oh, and she also said he was a “mutant.”Read her entire rant below:“LOL, Elon Musk is better off hiring an escort. At least an escort would have kept her mouth shut about his business. He’s got some dirty-sneaker-inbred-out of the words Pabst beer p***y methhead-junkie running around town telling EVERYONE EVERYTHING ABOUT HIM. All because he needed a date to the Met Gala to hide his shrinking d**k from Amber Heard LOL.“A f***ing rebound. A beta male who took steroids and got hair plugs to convince himself he was alpha. There’s no reason, that in this collab with Grimes, I know so much about ‘Elon Musk’ … Grimes is really an idiot.“And Elon Musk is really a part of the problem. When you talk about white male privilege and colonialism… His family’s wealth is rooted in emerald and ore mines in southern African during apartheid.“This trash a** beta male pig was given his start in life because his disgusting racist parents took advantage of thousands of black people…..“Ask Elon Musk what the f*** he does for Africa? Nothing, he ignores it. These fake a** libertarian sh** bags.“And hes ugly. The thin grey lips. The froggy eyelids. Un-uniformed hair growth pattern. Pork skin. He’s own the Down syndrome spectrum. FOR SURE“There’s something not quite right about that man. I wouldn’t give the credit of calling him an alien. He’s a mutant. His humanoid group emerged/crawled out of the Caucasus cave system 15,000 years after the first Caucasian homo-sapiens did. He’s really a caveman.”And that’s not all. Banks, apparently after being accused of holding herself hostage, continued:“Holding myself hostage? So you mean to tell me I specifically invited myself into your home after weeks and weeks of you telling me how your man thinks I’m hot and begging me to come to LA to work with [your] crusty a**? F***ing crackers. The last time I try working with a white b**ch.“They’re both two f***ing crackheads. [He’s] tweeting on acid f***ing up his own stocks and whatnot. A real life dummy The nerve of these crackheads to think I would put my fully human lips on them. Absolutely atrocious.After waiting for days, Banks said she received a first-class plane ticket out of L.A., which she did not appreciate.“Lol I waited around all weekend while Grimes coddled her boyfriend for being too stupid to know not to go on Twitter while on acid. Then she had the nerve to go ghost and ‘book me a first class flight’ thru Roc Nation as if she’s big enough to send ME out of La. Ha!“I should have stayed my ass in NYC. They invited me here to stay and told me I couldn’t bring my boyfriend…. Lol… it was probably some weird threesome sex sh** to begin with…..”Yikes. This is a far cry from the excitement Banks expressed last month on Twitter when she found out she was going to collaborate with Grimes.“Omg I’m listening to f2!!! All the songs are finished except Lorelei and Grimes song,” she tweeted. “I have a session next week with Alex Carapetis to lock Lorelei down. Then I go to LA to finish grimes and oh yes!! Finish Paradiso two! But daaaaaaaamn there’s some heat!”Guess it’s safe to say this Grimes collaboration won’t be happening after all. is a post from:

Prayers up for Aretha Franklin. According to multiple reports, the Queen of Soul is “gravely ill” and is “asking for your prayers at this time.”The sad news came from as well as a in Aretha’s hometown of Detroit.WDIV Morning Anchor Evrod Cassimy shared on Twitter this morning: “I am so saddened to report that the Queen of Soul and my good friend, Aretha Franklin is gravely ill. I spoke with her family members this morning. She is asking for your prayers at this time. I’ll have more details as I’m allowed to release.”BREAKING NEWS: I am so saddened to report that the Queen of Soul and my good friend, Aretha Franklin is gravely ill. I spoke with her family members this morning. She is asking for your prayers at this time. I’ll have more details as I’m allowed to release.— Evrod Cassimy (@EvrodCassimy) Monday morning (Aug. 13) that Franklin’s friends and family were preparing to say their final goodbyes to her, as she is dying from cancer.A source very close to Aretha and a longtime dear friend tells TMZ he was told a week ago, “Prepare yourself, she’s dying.” The source adds Aretha was down to 86 pounds and her health was failing. The source says 2 weeks ago everyone in Aretha’s circle was told “she could go any time.”Another source — someone who has been close to Aretha for decades — tells TMZ she has been battling cancer.Franklin, who is 76, has been in poor health as of late. She has continued performing, but on a limited basis, with her most recent performance being nearly a year ago last November at an Elton John AIDS Foundation event.It is no secret that Franklin has struggled with weight, alcohol and was a heavy smoker. She gained and lost weight, quit smoking, and in 2011 canceled a concert tour to have a surgery that was rumored to have been to remove cancerous tumors.While she never confirmed the diagnosis, a year later in 2011 she had a comeback concert but the comeback doesn’t last as over the next few years, she canceled a number of gigs to deal with an undisclosed medical condition.She told the Associated Press in 2013 that she had a “” and was “85%” healed.Last November, that Franklin had died from cancer after a post from a fake Twitter account purporting to be Franklin’s said that she had passed away. Later, the Instagram blog Fameolous said that Franklin was “not doing good and may pass soon.” They added that she had been “battling cancer for a while now.”Franklin has been a victim of declining health rumors for the past several years, but it sounds like this latest story has some credibility behind it. At one of her last concerts, a show in Detroit at an outdoor venue, she reportedly said to the audience to “keep me in your prayers.”Although Franklin has declined to identify her illnesses, all three of her siblings have died from cancer: her brother Cecil in 1989 from lung cancer, her sisters Carolyn from breast cancer in 1988 and Erma in 2002 from throat cancer.Franklin has the third-most Grammy Awards for any female artist in history. In an last year, she said that would be her last year performing and touring, but she planned to go into the studio and make music with “her old pal Stevie Wonder.”Franklin told Rolling Stone, “Of course, several of the songs are going to be produced by Stevie. There’s only one Stevie, right?”Earlier this year, Franklin said she after Halle Berry turned down the role. is a post from:

A Baltimore police officer has been suspended from his position after a viral video showed him as the aggressor in a violent altercation with an unarmed man.According to the Baltimore Sun, the incident occurred Saturday (Aug. 11) outside Q’s Bar and Liquors in the 2600 block of E. Monument St. in East Baltimore.While the video, captured by a nearby eyewitness, doesn’t show what caused the incident to escalate to violence, it does show the entire physical altercation.The cop, whose was identified as Officer Arthur Williams, can be seen pushing the man—26-year-old Dashawn McGrier—against a wall and placing his hand on his chest, which prompted the man’s attempt to remove it. That’s when Officer Williams started throwing punches.The video shows Williams punching McGrier several times before shoving him into a wall and beating on him until he falls to the ground. Although McGrier appears to try to deflect some of the officer’s punches, he does not punch back.A second officer on the scene, who has not been identified, briefly placed his hands on McGrier’s arm as he tried to avoid the repeated blows, but does not appear to try to stop the first officer from throwing punches.Witnesses in the area say that Officer Williams knew McGrier from prior interactions, and said that McGrier may have been targeted in the incident, which is why he was initially talking back. “He knows his rights, and he felt as though his rights were being violated, and he took offense to that,” one man said.A woman who grew up with McGrier and considers him like a brother called the incident shocking.“I was speechless. I was enraged. I was hurt. I was shocked more than anything. That is really something you don’t expect,” Shantel Allen said. “I truly feel as though this officer needs to be dealt with in a very serious manner, so none of his fellow officers or anyone else in the criminal justice system feels like they can use this kind of force. This is a crime. You can’t just go around putting your hands on people.”The Baltimore Police Dept. said Saturday’s incident began after two officers stopped McGrier, let him go, then approached him again to give him a citizen contact sheet. “When he was asked for his identification, the situation escalated when he refused,” the department said. “The police officer then struck the man several times.”Attorney Warren Brown, who is representing McGrier, said his client had a previous run-in with Officer Williams back in June that resulted in McGrier being charged with assaulting the officer, disorderly conduct, obstruction and hindering, and resisting arrest. Brown said that in that incident and in the one Saturday, the officer targeted McGrier without justification.Brown said in Saturday’s incident, McGrier was sitting on the steps when Williams passed by in his vehicle. Then moments later as he was walking down the street, the officer, now on foot, told him to stop without giving him a reason.“My client was saying, ‘What is this all about? You don’t even have probable cause,’” Brown said. That’s when Williams began shoving McGrier, Brown said.Brown said McGrier was not being charged with a crime, but was taken to a hospital and was having X-rays taken of jaw, nose and ribs to see if he suffered any fractures from the altercation.“It seems like this officer had just decided that Dashawn was going to be his punching bag,” Brown said. “And this was a brutal attack that was degrading and demeaning to my client, to that community, and to the police department.” is a post from:

Kim Kardashian’s 5-year-old daughter North West is at the age where she questions everything. Particularly, her mom’s fame.Thursday (Aug. 9), during an interview with Big Boy’s Neighborhood on Real 92.3 LA, Kim said she finally had to have “that” conversation with North about why mommy is famous, and she basically dodged the question like an opossum trying to dodge traffic.“[She said] ‘Mom, why are you famous?'” Kim said. “Oh… okay, I’m gonna have to explain this. And I’m like, ‘We have a TV show. We have a TV show.’ And she was like ‘Oh, okay.’ And that was the first time when she was like ‘Oh.'”Uhm. Yeah. About that. Yikes. Should we tell North the REAL reason why mommy’s famous?While Kim obviously can’t tell a little 5-year-old girl that her mom’s fame is the result of a sex tape with a man who isn’t her dad, we’re sure this isn’t the last time North is going to visit this question.One day in the near future, a Google search is going to expose the truth and Kim had better be prepared for LOTS of questions.Watch Kim Kardashian’s full interview with Big Boy’s Neighborhood below: is a post from:

Tekashi 6ix9ine could spend the next 1-3 years of his life behind bars if prosecutors get their way.The controversial rapper, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, appeared in court Thursday (Aug. 9) to answer to charges related to a sexual misconduct case from 2015 in which he was charged with the use of a child in a sexual performance and was found guilty.Tekashi 69 was accused of having sexual contact with a 13-year-old girl in February 2015 and later distributing at least three videos of the incident online.According to the criminal complaint, in the first video, “the child engages in oral sexual intercourse with the separately charged defendant Taquan Anderson, while the defendant, Daniel Hernandez, stands behind the child making a thrusting motion with his pelvis and smacking her on her buttocks. The child is nude in the video.”The other two videos show the child sitting on 6ix9ine’s lap while Anderson groped her breasts and later sitting naked across Anderson and 6ix9ine. The rapper claimed to have “no sexual contact” with the girl and denied knowing she was a minor.Tekashi also claimed to be 17 years old at the time of the incident, although the birth date listed in the complaint against him and in his statement to the police shows he was actually 18 at the time.The judge over the case gave him a conditional release and deferred his sentence for two years. The deal stated that Tekashi cannot get into any trouble of any kind, must complete community service hours, have a mental health evaluation, obtain his GED, and write an apology letter to the victim.Had he met the terms of the deal, 6ix9ine would have essentially received a slap on the wrist—three years probation and he would not have to register as a sex offender. However, prosecutors are now saying that 6ix9ine violated the terms of his plea agreement by getting arrested in Houston and Brooklyn., the Manhattan D.A. is now recommending the rapper be sentenced to 1-3 years in a state prison and be registered as a sex offender.Even though Tekashi has claimed he was a minor when the incident occurred, officials are adamant he should be “sentenced as an adult for the crime he committed against a child and accept the consequences of that conviction, including registration under the Sexual Offender Registration Act.”The states “Defendant has had over two years to demonstrate to this Court that the role he played in the sexual exploitation of a thirteen-year-old child was an aberration in his otherwise law-abiding life. He has failed to do so.”Tekashi 69 will be sentenced on October 2nd. is a post from:

The fourth and final suspect in XXXTentacion’s murder case has finally been arrested.Nearly two months after his involvement in XXXTentacion’s shooting death, 20-year-old Trayvon Newsome was arrested in Broward County, Florida on Tuesday (Aug. 7), according to online jail records.Newsome was booked on two charges: murder in the first degree and robbery with a deadly weapon. He turned himself in through his lawyer after being at large for several weeks, according to the Broward County Sheriff’s Department.Investigators believe Newsome was one of the two trigger men in XXX’s June 18th murder. The other alleged gunman, 22-year-old Michael Boatwright, and the remaining two murder suspects—22yo Dedrick Williams and 22yo Robert Allen—are also behind bars.According to documents obtained by Complex, Newsome pleaded not guilty to his charges and also filed for a demand for discovery, which is standard procedure and means the state of Florida must provide any and all evidence related to the case to his attorney.With Newsome’s not guilty plea, all four of the suspects have affirmed their innocence.Additionally, Michael Boatwright will reportedly undergo a mental examination before proceeding to trial, and if he is found unfit to go to trial, he could be involuntarily hospitalized and receive prescribed treatment.On June 18th, XXXTentacion withdrew $50,000 in cash from the bank and put it in a Louis Vuitton bag. As he was leaving RIVA Motorsports in Deerfield Beach, FL, the four suspects attempted to rob him, and when he refused to hand the bag over, they shot and killed him and ran off with the money.Broward Sheriff Scott Israel called the incident a “” and vowed to “bring those who did it to justice.”XXXTentacion’s family, friend and fans should be able to rest a little easier now knowing that all four of his alleged killers are now behind bars with murder charges. is a post from:

A 26-year-old mother was charged with murder after killing her 4-year-old daughter by throwing her in a river and letting her drown, police said.According to witnesses, Shakayla Denson waded into the Hillsborough River with her daughter, Je’Hyrah Daniels on Thursday, August 2nd. Roughly halfway across the river, she tossed the child and waded out. Initial reports had said that Denson allegedly threw the 4-year-old girl off a bridge, but authorities later confirmed that Denson waded in the river before tossing the child into it.Tampa Police Chief Brian Dugan confirmed the details in a news conference Friday morning, describing the girl’s death as “quite frankly, tragic, chaotic and just downright unbelievable, all at the same time.”“There are much more questions than there are answers,” Chief Dugan said. “It’s a completely tragic event. It’s a crazy world we live in.”Here’s what you need to know about Shakayla Denson and Je’Hyrah Daniels:Jakayla Denson is accused of tossing her struggling and screaming child, Je’Hyrah Daniels, into a river.People who witnessed this tragic incident firsthand say that they saw the little girl struggling and heard her screaming before her mother tossed her in the river.:Along the banks, passersby turned and stared, telling police later Thursday that they watched the woman drag her daughter from a car, across the pavement and grass, up to the edge — and then into — the Hillsborough River.The woman held the 4-year-old to her chest, witnesses said, and began to scream, too. She waded deeper. When the dark water reached her shoulders, the mother let go. As the little girl floated away, witnesses said they saw her head and hands rise into view. Then she disappeared.Tampa police Chief Brian Dugan received the call about 4 p.m. and he couldn’t believe what he was hearing. “I kept thinking, well maybe it’s a bag of garbage,” Dugan said. “Maybe somebody didn’t see what they thought they saw.”Rescue divers went into the river at 4:16 p.m. and within minutes, they pulled 4-year-old Je’Hyrah Daniels out of the water. She was pronounced dead at 4:49 by doctors at St. Joseph’s hospital.The doctors told police Je’Hyrah likely drowned, but no one would know for sure until an autopsy was completed by the medical examiner.“It’s the craziest world that we live in at times,” Chief Dugan said. “The child…is unfortunately now dead. The mom is in custody. Right now we are sorting through and trying to get some answers…we’re still trying to piece this whole thing together.”Witnesses said Shakayla Denson was acting strangely before the incident, counting out loud and running down the street “wearing only a bra and black pants and no shoes.”Witnesses said Denson was acting bizarrely before and after throwing her daughter into the river.Eddie Camacho, who owns a business near the river, that he saw Denson running up and down the street wearing only a bra and black pants and no shoes in the rain. He said he watched her run across the street and into a parking lot where she was checking car door handles. When he went out to ask her what she was doing, she ran into the store and into the back storage area.Osama Jamil, an employee of the store, was helping customers at the counter but went to the back to investigate. “It was weird,” Jamil said. “She was back there, washing her face. She was counting out loud, 19, 20, 21. I went back there to see if she was all right. She didn’t look right.”Jamil asked Denson if she was OK, and she stopped washing her face and ran past him and then outside behind the building.At a nearby apartment complex, Shawanda Smith said she saw a skinny black woman with messy hair, wearing a bra and leggings, throw her stuff into the back of a stranger’s Buick and lock herself in. The owner banged on the window until she ran away.Two hours before Je’Hyrah died, a neighbor saw her playing barefoot outside her apartment building. She was later spotted outside an auto repair shop about a half mile away from her home and her mother was seen yanking her in between parked cars.The shop’s owner, Abdelrazzaq Abdelrazz, saw Denson looking into windows before she shoved the girl into the back seat of a gray Nissan Altima and then hopped in herself, finding keys inside. She locked the doors.“What are you doing, ma’am?” Abdelrazz recalled asking her. “Open the door!” He then tried to put himself in front of the car to stop her from leaving, but she pulled the car away and rolled over his foot as she drove off.She then drove to the river where she committed the disturbing act.Two witnesses told police they saw Denson as she “forcefully removed Je’Hyrah from the back seat of the Altima by the arm.”They said Je’Hyrah was “screaming loudly and not cooperating” as Denson pulled her out of the car. Denson then went into the Hillsborough River while holding both of Je’Hyrah’s arms until the water reached her shoulders.Witnesses say Shakayla Denson waded into the Hillsborough River with her 4-year-old daughter. Roughly halfway across the river, she tossed the child and began wading out, police say.Denson is now charged with first-degree murder >> — ABC Action News (@abcactionnews) Vicki Walker gave the above photo of the mother in the river to . She told the TV station that she saw the woman in the water, but didn’t see the child, “which was very odd,” she said. “I’ve lived here for years, I’ve never seen anybody in the river.”Walker said that the woman was by herself and that she watched her walk out of the river onto the bank, where she said the woman sat for a while. “There’s a part of me that’s like ‘oh my gosh, why didn’t I run over there? Why didn’t I talk to this person? Why didn’t I find out what was going on?’ I had no idea,” Walker added.Police said they “quickly located the woman suspected of tossing the child in the water. She was walking nearby and was taken into custody.”Denson had created a GoFundMe for her daughter who had been diagnosed with autism.About 9 months ago, Shakayla Denson created a GoFundMe page titled “Life with je’hyrah.” It featured a photo of her and Je’Hyrah with the following caption:“My daughter was recently diagnose with autism spectrum, my goal is to start saving for therapy equipment, and also for je’hyrah’s future. I’ve also gathered interest in reaching out to others living with autism, and would enjoy providing strategies and resources I’ve learn to help them get threw the day. Thanks and i appreciate it.”Denson had set a goal of $1,500, but received no donations. The page has since been deleted and was Jedaric Daniels to help cover funeral costs.He wrote:“Je’hyrah was a happy 4 year who’s life was taken away from her so suddenly! I am reaching out to ask for help with burying my only babygirl. In my entire 37 years of living, I have never endured so much hurt in pain. Je’hyrah was diagnosed with Autisum so she required a little more love and attention. I loved her with every bone in my body. Please help me lay Je’hyrah to rest!! She deserves a proper burial. NO AMOUNT IS TO SMALL!!!”According to her Facebook page, Denson worked for a healthcare company and studied to be a registered nurse. She also has a criminal record, according to court docs.On Facebook, Kayla Denson referred to herself as “just a child of god, a growing [woman] finding her way.”On another page, with the same profile picture as the first, she wrote that she worked at WellCare Health Plans and studied to become a Registered Nurse at Hillsborough Community College.According to Florida court records, Denson also has a criminal record, which includes arrests for theft and criminal traffic cases, such as driving with a suspended license. The theft case dated back to 2016 and was a second-degree misdemeanor.A was held Saturday night (Aug. 4) to remember 4-year-old Je’Hyrah Daniels. Nearly 100 people gathered near the grassy bank of the Hillsborough River to remember Je’Hyrah.“She loved French fries. She loved to eat French fries,” said Adeesha Hailey, a friend of the family who has known them for over 40 years. Hailey said she was still trying to understand why the little girl is gone.“She wasn’t a monster,” . “She didn’t beat her baby. Nothing like that. We just need to know what was going on. Something had to be going on to leave her baby out in the water and float away. We don’t know what made her take her out there and leave her and just walk away. We don’t know.”Tragedy Daniels, a cousin of Shakayla Denson, said: “Right now, we are feeling upset and trying to do our best to get through it and find support for each other and the family. Things are just said all over but deep down, we know what we felt, what she felt, and that is not her and we got to stand by her and support her the best way we can and that is what we are here to do. And we are going to start by today, by showing support, for my little cousin and trying to keep the love going.”A child welfare report stated that Je’Hyrah Daniels was non-verbal and Denson seemed “overwhelmed and tired” from caring for her. The report also said that Je’Hyrah was fixated on water.About six weeks prior to Je’Hyrah’s drowning death, child protection workers fielded a report from someone who claimed Shakayla Denson wasn’t properly caring for her daughter, . According to the caller, Je’Hyrah was non-verbal and Denson seemed “overwhelmed and tired” from taking care of her.A Hillsborough County Sheriff’s child-protective investigator wrote in a record of the initial report: “It seems like the mother is upset that she has these disabilities and (she) is not the baby she dreamed of having.”On June 19th, someone called child services to report that Je’Hyrah had wandered off while visiting her great-grandmother’s home and walked to a nearby park. The tipster said they were concerned that Denson “is always tired and sleeping,” according to the report.“The mother is easily distracted and doesn’t show much attention toward Je’Hyrah,” the tipster stated. “She just lets her run around and do what she wants. She doesn’t seem to have the maturity to address the special needs that Je’Hyrah has.”During a June 20th visit to the home, an investigator found that Je’Hyrah seemed happy and healthy. The report stated that Je’Hyrah and her mother lived in a two bedroom, one bathroom apartment that was equipped with a security system and had no hazards. The mother and daughter also had a small dog, which the investigator said appeared to be friendly.Denson told the investigator that she was shocked that someone had reported her and described herself as a great mother, but admitted that it was difficult taking care of a special-needs child as a single parent. She said she and Je’Hyrah’s father were not together, but he pays child support when he can, the report stated.Denson denied that Je’Hyrah had ever wandered outside of their home, “but she is very preoccupied with water and always wants to jump in no matter where they are,” the report stated.The investigator wrote in the report that Je’Hyrah seemed happy and energetic. She didn’t have any marks or injuries and responded to basic commands. The report noted that as the investigator and Denson walked through the residence, the girl would follow them.The investigator said Denson told them her daughter’s autism diagnosis had changed her life. She said the girl couldn’t speak and would often throw tantrums. She said she kept the alarm in her apartment on to let her know if Je’Hyrah ever tried to wander outside. She said relatives helped care for her daughter, but she feared leaving her with others because they might not know how to deal with her behavior.Denson said she worked 3 to 4 days a week at McDonald’s but was looking for a work from home job so that she could spend more time with Je’Hyrah. She said her daughter had received some behavioral therapy and she was working on getting her enrolled in the Florida Autism Center of Excellence (FACE).“She denied that there is anything wrong with her that would prevent her from being able to take care of the child,” the report stated. “She denied that she is too immature to care for the child.”The investigator also met with Denson’s sister, who sometimes helped watch Je’Hyrah. The aunt said her niece did try to wander sometimes, but Denson was good about supervising her, and she had no concerns for her well-being.Two of Denson’s neighbors also said they had no concerns for the girl’s safety. The investigator noted in their report that Denson, who had two prior arrests for failure to appear in court, showed “no pattern of violent, impulsive, or concerning behavior.”Investigators checked in again with Je’Hyrah’s grandmother in late July, and she reported that things were going well. By then, Je’Hyrah was linked with the Center for Autism and Related Disorders, where she had been learning to communicate by pointing to pictures in a book. She had also been enrolled in the FACE school.The investigation was closed on July 31st, concluding that there was no evidence of maltreatment, abuse or neglect. Two days later, Denson carried her screaming daughter to the Hillsborough River and left her to drown.Denson was officially charged with murder in the first degree, aggravated child abuse and grand theft auto at her first court appearance on Friday, August 3rd. She was denied bond. is a post from:

Beyoncé goes for a completely natural look for her September 2018 Vogue magazine cover. “I think it’s important for women and men to see and appreciate the beauty in their natural bodies,” she says in an . “That’s why I stripped away the wigs and hair extensions and used little makeup for this shoot.”Beyoncé’s was shot entirely by a young, black photographer. In fact, 23-year-old Tyler Mitchell is the first African American to shoot a Vogue cover in the magazine’s entire 126-year history, and Queen Bey is the reason why he’s making history. She was given full control over the direction of the shoot and its accompanying feature.“It’s important to me that I help open doors for younger artists,” she said. “Until there is a mosaic of perspectives coming from different ethnicities behind the lens, we will continue to have a narrow approach and view of what the world actually looks like. That is why I wanted to work with this brilliant 23-year-old photographer Tyler Mitchell.”The notoriously private entertainer, who rarely (if ever) does interviews these days, opened up about her body image, complications from her pregnancy with twins Rumi and Sir, her ancestry and legacy, Coachella, her OTRII stadium tour with husband JAY-Z, and more.Here are some things we learned about Beyoncé from her Vogue essay:Beyoncé was more than 200 pounds after giving birth to the twins. She had an emergency C-Section and still has a little “FUPA” to this day, which she says she now embraces.“After the birth of my first child, I believed in the things society said about how my body should look. I put pressure on myself to lose all the baby weight in three months, and scheduled a small tour to assure I would do it. Looking back, that was crazy. I was still breastfeeding when I performed the Revel shows in Atlantic City in 2012. After the twins, I approached things very differently.“I was 218 pounds the day I gave birth to Rumi and Sir. I was swollen from toxemia and had been on bed rest for over a month. My health and my babies’ health were in danger, so I had an emergency C-section. We spent many weeks in the NICU. My husband was a soldier and such a strong support system for me. I am proud to have been a witness to his strength and evolution as a man, a best friend, and a father. I was in survival mode and did not grasp it all until months later.“Today I have a connection to any parent who has been through such an experience. After the C-section, my core felt different. It had been major surgery. Some of your organs are shifted temporarily, and in rare cases, removed temporarily during delivery. I am not sure everyone understands that. I needed time to heal, to recover.“During my recovery, I gave myself self-love and self-care, and I embraced being curvier. I accepted what my body wanted to be. After six months, I started preparing for Coachella. I became vegan temporarily, gave up coffee, alcohol, and all fruit drinks. But I was patient with myself and enjoyed my fuller curves. My kids and husband did, too.“I think it’s important for women and men to see and appreciate the beauty in their natural bodies. That’s why I stripped away the wigs and hair extensions and used little makeup for this shoot.“To this day my arms, shoulders, breasts, and thighs are fuller. I have a little mommy pouch, and I’m in no rush to get rid of it. I think it’s real. Whenever I’m ready to get a six-pack, I will go into beast zone and work my ass off until I have it. But right now, my little FUPA and I feel like we are meant to be.”After researching her ancestry, Beyoncé found out one of her ancestors was a slave owner who fell in love with and married a slave.“I come from a lineage of broken male-female relationships, abuse of power, and mistrust. Only when I saw that clearly was I able to resolve those conflicts in my own relationship. Connecting to the past and knowing our history makes us both bruised and beautiful.“I researched my ancestry recently and learned that I come from a slave owner who fell in love with and married a slave. I had to process that revelation over time. I questioned what it meant and tried to put it into perspective. I now believe it’s why God blessed me with my twins. Male and female energy was able to coexist and grow in my blood for the first time. I pray that I am able to break the generational curses in my family and that my children will have less complicated lives.”Beyoncé came up with the theme of her Coachella performance one day while putting Rumi to sleep and she started singing the black national anthem “Lift Every Voice and Sing.”“I had a clear vision for Coachella. I was so specific because I’d seen it, I’d heard it, and it was already written inside of me. One day I was randomly singing the black national anthem to Rumi while putting her to sleep. I started humming it to her every day. In the show at the time I was working on a version of the anthem with these dark minor chords and stomps and belts and screams.“After a few days of humming the anthem, I realized I had the melody wrong. I was singing the wrong anthem. One of the most rewarding parts of the show was making that change. I swear I felt pure joy shining down on us. I know that most of the young people on the stage and in the audience did not know the history of the black national anthem before Coachella. But they understood the feeling it gave them.“It was a celebration of all the people who sacrificed more than we could ever imagine, who moved the world forward so that it could welcome a woman of color to headline such a festival.”Performing in Berlin at the site of the 1936 Olympics for the “On The Run II” stadium tour was a memorable moment for Beyoncé.“One of the most memorable moments for me on the On the Run II tour was the Berlin show at Olympiastadion, the site of the 1936 Olympics. This is a site that was used to promote the rhetoric of hate, racism, and divisiveness, and it is the place where Jesse Owens won four gold medals, destroying the myth of white supremacy.“Less than 90 years later, two black people performed there to a packed, sold-out stadium. When Jay and I sang our final song, we saw everyone smiling, holding hands, kissing, and full of love. To see such human growth and connection—I live for those moments.”Beyoncé says she’s deliberate about how she presents herself to the world, and she wants to give her children the freedom to whatever they want to do in life.“My mother taught me the importance not just of being seen but of seeing myself. As the mother of two girls, it’s important to me that they see themselves too—in books, films, and on runways. It’s important to me that they see themselves as CEOs, as bosses, and that they know they can write the script for their own lives—that they can speak their minds and they have no ceiling. They don’t have to be a certain type or fit into a specific category. They don’t have to be politically correct, as long as they’re authentic, respectful, compassionate, and empathetic. They can explore any religion, fall in love with any race, and love who they want to love.“I want the same things for my son. I want him to know that he can be strong and brave but that he can also be sensitive and kind. I want my son to have a high emotional IQ where he is free to be caring, truthful, and honest. It’s everything a woman wants in a man, and yet we don’t teach it to our boys.“I hope to teach my son not to fall victim to what the internet says he should be or how he should love. I want to create better representations for him so he is allowed to reach his full potential as a man, and to teach him that the real magic he possesses in the world is the power to affirm his own existence.“I’m in a place of gratitude right now. I am accepting of who I am. I will continue to explore every inch of my soul and every part of my artistry. I want to learn more, teach more, and live in full. I’ve worked long and hard to be able to get to a place where I can choose to surround myself with what fulfills and inspires me.”For more from Beyoncé, pick up —available for pre-order via Amazon today (Aug. 6), and on newsstands in L.A. and New York City on Tuesday, August 14th, and nationwide on Tuesday, August 21st. is a post from:

Blake Griffin of the Detroit Pistons has reportedly reached a child support deal with his baby mama Brynn Cameron, and there are reports that he has been ordered to pay her $258,000 per month.Yes, you read that right, Blake Griffin has reportedly been ordered to pay his baby mama a QUARTER MILLION DOLLARS every month for child support. That adds up to at least $3 million per year! YIKES.Blake and Brynn had two children together during their 8-year relationship, and they were supposed to get married in 2017, but Blake called things off at the last minute and started dating Kendall Jenner.In the court documents outlining their child custody and support agreement, Cameron claimed Griffin kicked her and their two children, 5-year-old Ford and 2-year-old Finn from his $12 million Pacific Palisades mansion. And back January, Cameron said she was “reduced to being homeless” and only had $100 in her personal bank account.The pair were set to go head-to-head in a trial that was scheduled to begin Wednesday (Aug. 1), but they were able to come to an agreement privately., a judge ordered Griffin to fork over $258,000 every month for their two children. TMZ, however, says that while Griffin’s monthly payment is “significant,” the $258,000 number is “wrong.” They didn’t explain whether the actual number is higher or lower.Cameron, who played basketball when she attended college at USC, said she is currently employed and is taking care of their children, as well as another child from a previous relationship with former USC quarterback Matt Leinart.:Griffin and Cameron were locked in the battle over the NBA star’s income and assets, with Cameron claiming Griffin is “uber-rich”and should pay all costs, including her attorney’s fees, which totaled to about $375,000.According to court documents, 29-year old Griffin earned an average monthly salary of $2.2 million in 2016.For the purposes of determining monthly child support, however, the court in March determined Griffin’s annual income from the Detroit Pistons and other sources, including his investments, to be $35 million.Griffin said as of July 23, he is paying the lease for a five-bedroom home in Manhattan Beach for Cameron and the children. The documents also stated Griffin continues to pay for medical insurance and other costs since the children were born.A judge signed an order in July 19, which stated both sides shall mutually agree on all school and additional school expenses, but Griffin will pay for the kids’ extracurricular activities.“The focus is on the minor children’s reasonable needs consistent with Petitioner’s station in life,” a judge wrote in the July 19 order. “Any expenses paid by Petitioner that provides a direct benefit for the parties’ children is relevant. By way of example, if Petitioner has taken the minor children to a Lakers game or to the World Series or spent funds on the minor children on shopping sprees, information/documentation regarding same would be relevant.”Another judge in March granted Griffin and Cameron joint legal and physical custody of Ford and Finn.In the meantime, Cameron still has the ongoing civil suit against Griffin where she claimed the NBA star breached their oral contract.In that Feb. 14 suit, Cameron said Griffin — who is now dating model Francesca Aiello after splitting from Jenner in April — refused to “provide promised financial support” even after he asked her to “give up her career goals and aspirations to raise their children and support” his career.“Griffin cared more about the glamour of dating a Hollywood celebrity than the day-to-day responsibilities of being a father and family man,” Cameron’s attorneys wrote in the civil suit.A court date has been scheduled for February 2019 for the civil suit. is a post from:

Draymond Green is laughing off reports that he got punched by Tristan Thompson.Yesterday, that “multiple sources” had told them that Tristan Thompson and Draymond Green had gotten into a “big fight” inside a Los Angeles nightclub.Both ballers were in the nightclub for a private party after the ESPY Awards July 18th, and we’re told that Thompson – dad of baby girl True with Khloe Kardashian – socked Green with a two-piece, getting the better of the NBA Champion.And it was none other than their fellow teammates LeBron James and Kevin Durant that quickly stepped in to break up the fracas, we’re told. James apparently had enough and left the party shortly after the alleged incident.Although neither player was seriously injured, the fight caused quite a stir among the well-heeled set at the invite-only bash.To corroborate their report, Bossip updated their article, saying that Fox Sports reporter Jason McIntyre confirmed that he also heard about what happened between Thompson and Green:Finally this story is out there and I can say what I’ve heard about Tristan Thompson punching Draymond Green 2 weeks ago— Jason McIntyre (@jasonrmcintyre) Draymond went up to apologize to Tristan for what happened after G4 of the finals. TT said ‘nah man’ and Draymond tried again, ‘come on, I didn’t mean it’ and then WHAP, Tristan leveled him with a punch. Draymond didn’t go down.— Jason McIntyre (@jasonrmcintyre) Draymond Green was not the aggressor, he was trying to make peace. Tristan felt embarrassed by the end of the Finals diss moment and just unloaded. Couple players i spoke here in LA/on social media went with, "about time"— Jason McIntyre (@jasonrmcintyre) Well, Draymond Green has caught wind of the reports, and he’s here to let the world know that they are simply not true. He responded to the claims in his Instagram story, and also dissed the city of Cleveland in the process.“I’ve enjoyed y’all stories and talk shows over the last couple days!!! Them joints inaccurate doe G!!! Aight, carry on good people,” he wrote.“They may want to cancel that parade too lol,” he added, possibly referring to a parade started by a Cavs fan aiming to celebrate Thompson and Green’s rumored altercation.someone made this facebook event ? — SB Nation (@SBNation) Green continued: “Nah keep the parade that city won’t have any for a while… I forgot Bron left. Lastly, I’m only telling y’all them facts ore off because ma dukes was tired of y’all talking. I really don’t care.” is a post from:

Kim Kardashian sparked a debate on social media after she accused male supermodel Tyson Beckford of being a closeted homosexual man.It all started when Beckford, 47, commented on an Instagram photo of her that was later screen-shotted by The Shade Room. “Sorry I don’t care for it personally,” he wrote of the photo highlighting her body shape and alleged “botched” cosmetic surgery. “She is not real, doctor f***ed up on her right hip.”37-year-old Kardashian, who has previously said that she’s never gone under the knife, replied, “Sis we all know why you don’t care for it,” basically insinuating that Beckford, a proud father of one, is gay and isn’t attracted to women.Social media reactions were all over the place, with folks going in on Kim for calling Tyson “sis” and others going in on Tyson for body shaming Kim.kim kardashian really dragged tyson beckford out of the closet that kendall is hiding in.— ?? (@breegarita) You guys think implying that Tyson Beckford is gay and shading him for it was funny? Meanwhile she bitched and moaned when ppl made fun of her schizophrenic, pill popping husband? Y’all better stop encouraging that bad body white woman in her disrespect of our men!— The Opinion (@SheraeSpeaks_) kim kardashian response to Tyson beckford was homophobic AF. Calling him SIS and then adding the rest of that homophobic ass sentence. GIRL BYE.— Jason (Black Panther & Captain Marvel) ? (@RoseIsotope) I hope y'all get kim kardashian together for that homophobic response to Tyson Beckford.— Edmond Mode (@KidTiger__) Kim Kardashian, you're questioning Tyson Beckford's sexuality, like being "gay" is something evil. How about you worry about your husband mental health because you should be more concerned about his well being than if someone is gay. The nerve of this woman. Not today Kimberly.— Mr. Weeks ?? (@MrDane1982) I wouldn’t necessarily consider Kim Kardashian’s clap back on Tyson Beckford homophobic. Being in the closet is a struggle for many, so “homophobic” isnt the right judgment here.I would, however, consider it cheap & classless. Only basic b*tches go the gay insult route, Kim.— M* (@MattyBrand) Tyson Beckford’s comments on Kim K’s body (however true or whatever) reeked of male privilege and body shaming.Kim Kardashian’s response was rooted in slick homophobia. Women love using “gay” to emasculate men but all they really do is out themselves as fake-ass ‘allies’.— Chad Radwell. (@_NeMmY_) Ok here’s a question. IF Tyson Beckford IS gay… is Kim Kardashian’s “sis” comment homophobic or just disrespectful. You don’t gotta comment, you don’t gotta retweet. Just think about it. ???— Qartier Quise (@_ThatsQuise) BTW who gave Kim Kardashian permission to say ‘sis’ anyway? We can’t have nothing….— Nina Simone Mosley (@DTP1908) Tyson body shames Kim & y’all still find a way to bash her for calling him sis? The Kardashians are culture vultures, this ain’t nothing new, but that’s still no excuse to ignore him doing something y’all wouldn’t accept another man doing to any other woman. Kardashian or not.— ??shxq ????? (@Stwill_) She didn't ONLY call him sis. There was a whole sentence after that. Plus, Kim Kardashian is not a Gay person. — Yvangelista (@AdamantxYves) Wait Kim Kardashian called Tyson Beckford sis? BITCH AGSJAFAJAV IM SCREAMING IN MY JOBS RESTROOM ?? — johnal ??? (@johnalstiger1) Kim Kardashian called Tyson Beckford "sis" and implied that he was gay because he said that her body was fake.They getting way too comfortable….— MercedezUAZ (@MercedezUAZ) This new shit where straight folk use "sis" to call each other gay in a roundabout way… I hate it. — Craig Bro Dude (@CraigSJ) Tyson later responded with a series of Instagram stories, doubling down on his initial response to the picture, saying that his comments weren’t specifically targeted at Kim.“Despite what @TheShadeRoom might be tryna say, my opinion on women who do plastic surgery stays the same, not for me! I personally don’t care for it! End of story,” he wrote. “Always gonna pick a Beyoncé over anyone else.”So far, Kim has yet to respond, and Tyson clearly refuses to let the whole thing go: is a post from:

Does Facebook have a new plane reaction emoji?Some Facebook users started noticing a new reaction emoji showing up on their apps on Tuesday (Jul. 31). So far, the reaction only appears to work on Android (sorry iPhone users) and not everyone can see it.We at Gossip On This haven’t been able to independently verify the existence of a plane reaction emoji, because we all use iPhones, but there are a number of screenshots floating around the web.. has released its previously hidden plane ?? reaction button and it’s confusing everyone! ?? — Matt Navarra (@MattNavarra) There are unconfirmed reports (mainly ) that there’s also a fire reaction emoji, but we haven’t seen anyone use that one yet.Anyhow, these are the steps you need to follow to get the airplane reaction emoji to work on your Android devices.Step One: Update your Facebook app.If you’re not using the latest version of the Facebook app, you need to update it. Go the Google Play Store, then go to Settings. Hit the auto-update apps button, then choose one of the following options: Do not auto-update apps. Auto-update apps at any time. Auto-update apps over Wi-Fi only.Step Two: Clear your app’s cache.If you’re already using the latest version of the Facebook app, you need to clear your cache. You can do this by going to Settings > Apps > Facebook > Storage > Clear cache.And that’s it! After you’ve updated the app and cleared the cache, you should be able to see and use Facebook’s new plane reaction emoji.How do I see the plane reaction?After you’ve installed the latest version and cleared your cache, go to any Facebook post and “react” to it as you normally would with any other post, and the plane reaction should be presented as one of your options.Some users have instead of a plane, so if that’s the case for you, hit the second angry face and the plane emoji will be added. In order to use the emoji again, repeat the same process.Also, FYI, there’s a scam going around telling users that if they like certain pages or comment on certain posts, they’ll be able to gain access to the plane reaction emoji, but we’re here to let you know that it’s NOT TRUE. It’s not possible for you to be able to use a Facebook feature by liking/commenting on pages or posts.How long will the plane reaction be around?Facebook hasn’t announced that they would be releasing a new reaction emoji, which has raised a number of questions among users.However, a Facebook spokesperson told Fast Company regarding the plane reaction: “This was created as part of an employee hackathon and wasn’t cleared for takeoff. Our apologies.”So it sounds like this is definitely not a permanent addition and will only be around for a limited time. So, enjoy it while it lasts! is a post from:

Bruno Mars was blindsided by news of Cardi B pulling out of their joint tour to take care of his newborn baby, so much so that it’s being reported that his team is “scrambling” to find a replacement ASAP.:Sources connected to Bruno’s tour—slated to kick off in September—tell us he’s without an opener and, so far, there has been no replacement made for Cardi. We’re told Bruno’s people were burning up the phones Friday … starting conversations with reps from a number of musicians but nothing is close to being locked down.Our sources say Cardi’s decision to back out of the tour has created some issues … dancers were hired, costumes made and stage backdrops built.Back in February, Mars announced that Cardi would be joining him on the final leg of his 24K Magic Tour. However, last Thursday (Jul. 26), Cardi announced via Twitter that she “understated this whole mommy thing” and she’s “not ready physically” and “not ready to leave [her] baby behind since doctors explained it’s not healthy for her to be on the road.”Sorry guys ,Thank you for being so supportive and understanding .Your the best ?????? — iamcardib (@iamcardib) Bruno was supportive of Cardi’s decision to stay home and enjoy being a new mommy and replied with a heartfelt message, saying that the “most important thing is you and your family’s health” and “you are absolutely doing the right thing.”He went to say that he loved her and would “play Bodak Yellow every night in your honor” before ending his message with “Please give your baby girl a hug from me and a hug on behalf of everyone on the 24K Magic Tour. Love, Bruno.”And after days of working overtime to find a replacement for Cardi, it sounds like he’s already found someone to fill her spot.Responding to a fan who asked who would be taking over, Bruno joked, “I got a cousin learning all of Cardi’s songs right now. It’s gonna be great! He’s super excited.” When asked if he would reveal who’s really replacing Cardi, Mars said “Nah.”I got a cousin learning all of Cardi’s songs right now. It’s gonna be great! He’s super excited ? — Bruno Mars (@BrunoMars) NAH! — Bruno Mars (@BrunoMars) With the tour kicking off in September, Bruno should be making an announcement about who will be taking Cardi’s spot pretty soon. Of course, Cardi B is irreplaceable, but I’m sure he’s found someone good enough to fill her shoes. is a post from:
