Introducing The K.Michelle Home Furnishing Line that's NOT HERS?


Is K.Michelle Announcing a Home Furnishing Line really NOT HERS?
What should be an exciting time for K.Michelle (real name Kimberly Michelle Pate) has turned into a bit of a controversy. The soulful singer — who most of us were introduced on the Love & Hip Hop franchise, coupled with her own spin-off — has announced her latest business venture, a home goods line.
She announced on Instagram:
Can’t believe this is really happening. So excited about my new home good line. It has everything from my custom designed furniture, my doggie beds, candles, bed and bath accessories. Coming to a retailer near you. Thank you so much @nicologyrules bringing my vision and passion to life. Details coming soon???? Custom orders will be available! Pick your own colors
So what’s the issue? An Atlanta area furniture company called Huff Furniture in Buckhead claims that K.Michelle’s furniture isn’t exactly authentic. One of the company’s owners wrote the following on Instagram:
They say imitation is the best form of flattery. We say it’s simply poor form especially when it’s done using images from within our showroom.

Folks if you want to actually find a gossip page you can trust, check out @spillth3tea2 as opposed to people with an agenda instead of slanting the truth. @theshaderoominc continually post half truths to suit their interests instead of truths. Repost that! #clapbackseason

This is business and business etiquette 101. Clients and friends, do business with whomever you choose. Just know, when you put your 50% deposit of hard earned money into another persons hands, you want to make dang sure that person knows business. After 59 years sitting on Peachtree, trust and believe this is not the first time and won’t be the last that people try to come for us. That’s okay and that’s the American way. Many of our followers know I’m a female and I continually support female entrepreneurship. The difference is professionalism and ethics. I wish@KMichellemusic all the best. I just wish we had the opportunity to have met before all this so I could have mentored her along her journey in this business.#SundayNotSoFunDay ????????????

K.Michelle caught wind of the furniture store’s response, and wrote another post with the caption:
It’s the lifestyle! An Upscale affordable home good line created by Kimberly Michelle for the EVERDAY ladies who desire to “Live Like A Queen” Coming to a store near you. @nicologyrules we are more than ready! Custom orders will be available! Pick your own colors! ***THANK YOU NEW AGE UPHOLSTERY for this design, and making all my other designs. *** I’m pretty sure you’ve made other beds for other companies and they sell them. Hate to upset you, but me and Huff have the same distributor. Mine will be several different colors and textures. They will be on sale soon! Sorry, not sorry.

Anywho, no details have yet been released on the official date for K.Michelle’s launch.

DRAMA! Bobbi Kristina's Aunt Leolah Brown Thrown Out of her Funeral!



Bobbi Kristina's Aunt Leolah Brown Thrown Out of Funeral After Outburst
There is family drama inside Bobbi Kristina Brown’s funeral on Saturday.
Leolah Brown, Bobbi Kristina’s aunt, was thrown out of the memorial service after interrupting she interrupted Pat Houston as she was walking up to the podium to speak, causing a stir inside St. James United Methodist Church, ET has learned.
Leolah yelled, "How dare you? How dare you?" Filmmaker Tyler Perry, a friend of the family, quickly jumped into action, crossing through the aisles to get to Leolah, calming her down before helping escort her outside.

Afterward an angry Leolah spoke to press, including ET, outside the church in Alpharetta, Georgia, saying that the late Whitney Houston was going to “haunt” Pat, who is Whitney’s sister-in-law, from her grave and spoke of the anger she had toward Bobbi Kristina's boyfriend Nick Gordon.
"Whitney will haunt Pat Houston from the grave. She will haunt her. Pat, it's not over. It has just begun. It has just begun," Leolah, Bobby Brown's sister, told press, including ET. "I have information, I have evidence, I have knowledge of who Pat really is -- she is not any relation whatsoever to Krissi -- she's not even a Houston. She's just being the phony person that she is."
Leolah also remembered her niece, telling press, "Krissi, she'll be remembered in our hearts forever. Just like Whitney."

Following the aftermath, she took to her Facebook page, writing in part, "i was unable to protekt [sic] her.. i hate this.. all i kan [sic] do is avenge her now."
Leolah has been outspoken about the handling of her late niece’s funeral arrangements, claiming in a scathing Facebook post that Pat was using Bobbi Kristina’s name “for her personal gain” in seeking donations to her foundation, The Marion P. Foundation.
This isn’t the only family drama surrounding the memorial service. A few days before the funeral, Gordon wrote an email to Bobby Brown and Pat Houston, pleading with them to allow him to attend the service.


"I loved Krissi with all my heart and I am destroyed that she is gone and I need to say goodbye,” Gordon wrote. "Krissi loved me very much and she would want me there."

WOW!

Is Lil Kim In Danger Of Losing Mansion Over Unpaid Taxes?
Lil Kim hasn’t released a studio album since 2005 but maybe the legendary rapper should make her way back to the recording booth.
The IRS has the 41-year-old star born Kimberly Jones on their radar and the end game always has them coming out on top.

According to Bossip: With Lil Kim making domestic violence allegations and facing a child custody battle, it’s no wonder that she let her finances lapse.
But the IRS doesn’t care, and last month, slapped the pint-sized rapper with a federal tax lien for nearly $127,000. That means the IRS could seize her $3 million, two acre North Jersey mansion, which she bought in 2002, in order to clear the tax debt.
Lil Kim is currently fighting her ex, Mr. Papers, for custody of their one-year-old daughter, Royal Reign. Mr. Papers filed for one day a week parental visitation of the tot, and agreed to have a court-appointed monitor supervise the visits.
An IRS spokesman told BOSSIP that it doesn’t comment on individual cases.
Kim has been in hot water with the taxman before. In 2010, the IRS filed a $510,000 tax lien against her. New York State has three tax warrants totaling $70,628 for back taxes from 2008 through 2010.

The news leaked a day after Lil Kim claimed her child’s father, Mr. Papers used to go upside her head. Obviously, he’s not playing fair either. DAMN KIMMY BOO!

Did Kris Jenner hash things out with Caitlyn Jenner?
Things between Caitlyn Jenner and Kris Jenner have been rocky ever since the former married couple split and Jenner came out as transgender earlier this year. But after months of tension between the two, a new report claims that Caitlyn and Kris may have finally made peace with each other.

As previously reported, Kris didn’t take Jenner’s transition well and she publicly mourned the “loss” of her husband on a special episode of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” telling Jenner that she was shocked about his transition and that he’d mentally checked out of their marriage.
However, Jenner claimed that Kris knew of her desire to become a woman and that she’s been mean to her throughout their marriage.

Suffice it to say, the couple ended their marriage on a sour note and when Jenner finally did make her debut as woman and received praise from her children, Kris was noticeably silent.
Things were so bad that Jenner reportedly didn’t even invite Kris to the ESPY Awards to watch her receive the Arthur Ashe Courage Award.
But there may be hope for peace between the two because TMZ is reporting that Kris met up with Jenner on Tuesday to begin hashing out their issues.

Sources say that Kris is sad that, despite having been married for 23 years and having kids together, she and Jenner rarely ever speak anymore. So when she went to Jenner’s home on Tuesday, the two got personal and began to really open up to each other about where things have gone wrong between them.

The sources say that not everything was settled in the conversation, but Kris is hopeful that this is the start of a new beginning with Jenner.


Confederate Flags Left Near Rev. Martin Luther King's Church Ebenezer Baptist!
Police worked Thursday to identify two white males who were caught on surveillance camera laying Confederate battle flags neatly on the ground near the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.'s church.
It was the latest provocative act involving the Civil War-era symbol since nine black church members were gunned down during Bible study in South Carolina, and it happened in the heart of an area devoted to the slain civil rights leader, near his birthplace, his crypt and a center devoted to preserving his legacy.

Atlanta police Chief George Turner said his agency was working with federal authorities and they have not determined what charges might be levied. Turner said they have not ruled out a hate crime, though Georgia has no state hate crimes law.

An officer from the Atlanta FBI's joint terrorism task force was on the scene "to better determine if any specific threats were received" and to provide support to Atlanta police, FBI Special Agent Steve Emmett said in an email.
The Rev. Raphael Warnock, senior pastor at Ebenezer Baptist Church, called placing the flags on church grounds a "terroristic threat."
"This act by a cowardly and misguided individual or individuals is provocative to say the least. It ought to get the attention not only of black people but of freedom-loving people," he said. "To place Confederate flags on the campus of Ebenezer Baptist Church after this horrific act in Charleston, in the wake of all this happening in our country, whatever the message was, it was clearly not about heritage, it was about hate."
King preached at Ebenezer Baptist Church on Auburn Avenue, once a bustling center of commerce for Atlanta's African-American businesses and residents. The area is home to the historic church and a new church building where the congregation now meets and where the flags were placed. Nearby is the Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change, and all of those buildings are just a short walk from the home of King's grandparents, where he lived for the first 12 years of his life.

Atlanta police Officer Gary Wade said a maintenance worker discovered the flags at 6 a.m. Thursday and notified the National Park Service, which operates the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site, which is adjacent to the church.
The flags weren't stuck in the ground but instead laid flat. One was placed near a bell tower under a poster that said: "Black Lives Matter." The slogan, which has been spray-painted on Confederate monuments across the South this summer, has become part of a movement of civil rights supporters who say police treat blacks unfairly.

Two former Georgia prosecutors said it might be tough to prosecute the people responsible.
"It was certainly divisive and not acceptable behavior the way it was done, but I cannot find a criminal act to it," said Bob Keller, the Clayton County district attorney for nearly three decades until 2004.
Ken Hodges, who served as Dougherty County district attorney from 1997 to 2008, said a charge of vandalism to a place of worship might be possible.

Warnock, the church pastor, said black clergy from around the country were gathered at Ebenezer on Thursday to discuss the role of black churches in social justice issues, including mass incarceration. The placing of the flags only strengthens their resolve, he said.
Superintendent Judy Forte of the National Park Service said her office at the King historic site received a threatening phone message the day before the shooting at the South Carolina church. The message was rambling and "very alarming and they did mention coming here to the historic site," she said. There was no indication that was connected to the flags.
At some point within the last two years, a Confederate battle flag was placed at the tomb of King and his wife Coretta across the street from the church, said Forte, who couldn't recall exactly when that happened.

"It was disturbing and sickening, but unfortunately not terribly surprising," Warnock said of the latest incident. "We've seen this kind of ugliness before."


Chris Tucker Sues Comedian, Blasts Lawsuit Filed By Man Over Netflix Special
Chris Tucker is blasting the comedian who sued him accusing him of not paying him a dime in years for his work on his recent Neflix special, claiming his generosity was taken advantage of and the man actually owes him over 25k. According to TheJasmineBrand

Earlier this month, a man named Terry Hodges filed suit against Chris Tucker claiming he did a ton of work – starting in 2008 – for Tucker and his recent Netflix special — editing, writing, acting and producing – and hasn’t been paid in a dime in years. Hodges claimed in his lawsuit that he racked up 66k in fees, traveling to Philly, L.A. and Atlanta and had not received a paycheck regularly since 2011. Further, he accused Tucker of lying, by telling him that he would be listed as co-producer for the Netflix special. He sued for unspecified damages for the unpaid work he did for the comedian

Then on July 28th, Tucker fired back, explaining that he consulted with Hodges in regards to his concert film and to warm up the audience along with introducing him before he came out on stage. However, he says he never hired him to write, edit, produce, act or do voice over announcing for his special.

He denied all the allegations in the complaint and says that Hodges has been paid the full amount he was owed. He also claims that any damages Hodges may have incurred are offset by the wrongful conduct he committed including personal loans that Tucker gave to Hodges.

Tucker also accuses Hodges of not performing his obligations per their deal.
He then counter-sued Hodges saying he loaned the man 25k, on an open book that Tucker opened for him — which was to be paid back. However, he claims he was never paid and Tucker says he has been damaged to the tune of 25k + interest for him not paying him back.

Tucker explains he has demanded the 25k payment numerous times but Hodges has yet to pay. He is suing Hodges for the money back and attorney fees for having to fight this battle in court.

Ciara Gets talks to VICE Magazine, Shares Her Love For Janet Jackson  
In the midst of her budding romance with footballer Russell Wilson, "Dance Like We're Making Love" singer Ciara opened up to VICE Magazine about her critically-praised tribute to Janet Jackson at the BET Awards, the tips she's learned about relationships and how becoming a mother has changed her life.

The pictorial for the magazine was shot by Louie Banks and carried a very "presidential" theme.  Here are the highlights:

Would you ever run for president?
It definitely hasn’t crossed my mind.

Well, I'd vote for you. So, first off, please tell me everything about the Janet Jackson tribute video you were involved with, in intricate detail.
Oh, it was so fun. Everything about it was surreal, up until the point of being on stage like “this really happening?" Y’know, I just have so much respect for her. She truly is, to me, the best to ever do it when it comes to entertainment. I really wanted to make sure that I did the best that I could do, and honor her. It took tonnes of rehearsals, and I was also in for my video rehearsals as well as her rehearsals so it was just non stop. When I finally got to the stage, I was like “this is happening. It’s about to go down.” It was super exciting.
The latest album is named Jackie after your mother and your previous album was eponymous. Is there any significance behind that?
With this album, it was named after my mom but it was inspired from the fact that I’m a new mom and I understand what it’s like to be in her shoes and see the world from her point of view. So I guess if you think about it, my last album was self-titled and now I’m naming it after my mom, it does have a progression and it makes me feel something really cool. I’ve been really in tune with my growth over the past few years, and I’ve been yearning to grow and to learn more and keep on discovering more about myself. In this case, with this album, I definitely feel like it’s my best body of work to date. I allowed myself to be the most vulnerable I’ve ever been and I was really in tune with what I felt. I thought it was really important to get lost in the music and not overthink things. That’s what these past few years have been about for me - growing and self-discovery. And also for my fans to get to know me more and to know that we’re all the same, we all go through the same things. What better platform than music to be able to share something that everyone can relate to, and help or inspire or just be able to relate with people. That was really important to me. That’s what this album is about. And I do feel like a mini Jackie!
Let's talk about love. You have a lot of songs in your back catalogue that promote zero-tolerance on fuckboys. What have you learned about men over the course of your career?
I think that the one thing that’s important for a man when it comes to love is just timing. And that’s true for men and women. When it comes to love, females… we’re more likely to be more sensitive and allow ourselves to be more vulnerable. Guys, they’re used to being a little more fearful when it comes to love. I think when they decide to open up to love it’s really about timing, and what’s going on in their lives and when they want to. You can’t force anybody to love, they have to want to do that themselves. I think men are very simple. We are way more complicated beings, as females.

LOL!!! Redman: MTV Tried to Get Me to Rent a House for "Cribs"

Speaking more on the situation Redman spoke about the popularity of his episode to VLAD TV, and he believes that his situation was more believable because it was a little "junky."

BREAKING: Cincinnati Cop Pleads NOT GUILTY In Killing Of Sam DuBose!



Cop Pleads NOT GUILTY In Killing Of Sam DuBose
The cop's lawyer says his client feared for his life.

A University of Cincinnati police officer who shot a motorist after stopping him over a missing front license plate has pleaded not guilty to charges of murder and involuntary manslaughter.

Twenty-five-year-old Ray Tensing wore a striped jail uniform at his arraignment Thursday. Bond was set at $1 million.
Tensing was indicted Wednesday in the July 19 death of 43-year-old Samuel DuBose. Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters scoffed at Tensing's claim that he was dragged by DuBose's car, saying the officer "purposely killed him."

Tensing's attorney says his client feared for his life and didn't intend to kill DuBose.
DuBose's death comes amid months of national scrutiny of police dealings with African-Americans, especially those killed by officers. Tensing is white and DuBose is black. Authorities so far have not focused on race in the death.

THIS IS SIMPLY UNBELIEVABLE!

The Daily Buzz For July 30



Kevin Hart Opens Up to Rolling Stone Magazine and speaks on Race and Homophobia!
Kevin Hart is arguably the funniest man in Hollywood right now. Whether you find him funny or not, his incredible success has solidified him as a force to reckoned with when it comes to producing numbers at the box office. After laying the ground work with many years of performing at practically anywhere, he’s enjoying enjoying the fruits of his labor.

While he once slept in a bunk bed squeezed in the hallway of a one-bedroom apartment he shared with his single mom and older brother, the 36-year-old international superstar now lives in a massively gorgeous mansion sitting inside a gated community in the Los Angeles suburb of Tarzana. That’s where the Ride Along actor sat down with Rolling Stone magazine to give us a closer look inside his life as the funniest man in Hollywood.

In between stops on his “What Now” tour, which is on track to becoming the highest-grossing comedy tour of all time, and filming on the set of Central Intelligence (starring opposite Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson), the comedian opens up about his struggle with homophobia.

You’ll recall during a skit on from his 2010 Seriously Funny comedy tour, Kevin offered up a joke about how upset he would be as father to have a gay son. In the skit he said,

"One of my biggest fears is my son growing up and being gay. That's a fear. Keep in mind, I'm not homophobic. . . . Be happy. Do what you want to do. But me, as a heterosexual male, if I can prevent my son from being gay, I will."
These days he said he would stray away from jokes about being gay, but revealed when he made that joke, it was more about him dealing with homophobia rather than it having anything to do with his son (if he were to be gay). He explained,

"It's about my fear. I'm thinking about what I did as a dad, did I do something wrong, and if I did, what was it? Not that I'm not gonna love my son or think about him any differently. The funny thing within that joke is it's me getting mad at my son because of my own insecurities — I panicked. It has nothing to do with him, it's about me. That's the difference between bringing a joke across that's well thought-out and saying something just to ruffle feathers." Even so, he adds, "I wouldn't tell that joke today, because when I said it, the times weren't as sensitive as they are now. I think we love to make big deals out of things that aren't necessarily big deals, because we can. These things become public spectacles. So why set yourself up for failure?"

Next, the Wedding Ringer star touched on the issue of race in America. While he doesn’t joke much about race or address the current race issues that have dominated the media recently during his stand-up shows, he said such issues anger him.

He said, "A guy in the hood with two nickel bags of weed gets five years in jail, because they say they want to make an example of him, but I haven't seen one judge make an example out of one of these police officers that killed one of these young black men." But he keeps it offstage: "When I see videos of children being shot dead by police, I don't talk about it because it's something that scares me. Because I have kids. At that point, it's not a joking matter. There is no joking there. I would not touch it."
True indeed.

He added, “I won't acknowledge what I won't let beat me. Have I experienced racism? Of course. But will I make you feel superior by saying I've felt trumped at times? No. I'll beat you by succeeding. I want to show my generation that a man of color, despite the roadblocks, can still make it. There's moments when I took to social media and said things, but it's always been on the positive side. I gave a message to Baltimore: At the end of the day, we're only hurting ourselves by destroying what we have. We have to go back and live there. We're torching, firebombing, looting our stuff. We need that CVS! Be smarter than this!" Hart doesn't see a time coming when he explores racism in his act, like his idols Rock and Chappelle do. Hart characterizes his appeal differently. "It's not my style of comedy," he says. "It angers me, but not onstage. Onstage, my job is to take away whatever problems are in the world, for that brief moment of time."

As he continues to sell out arenas and movie theaters, he’s also vigorously working to turning himself into a household name. He’s currently developing a video-sharing comedy site, set to rival Funny or Die, and plans to get his feet wet with the fitness sector. So who’s going to check him? He said,

"At this point, I'm competing against Kevin Hart."
Nice.

Uh Oh? Lil Kim Accuses Mr. Papers of Beating HER?

Tyrese Gibson Calls Out ‘White’ Radio Stations For Being Racist, Sends Open Letter To Ryan Seacrest
Tyrese Gibson’s new album “Black Rose” may be No. 1 right now, but that doesn’t seem to be helping him get any airplay on mainstream radio.

TMZ released a video in which the 36-year-old explains his qualms with mainstream radio stations, calling out DJs like Ryan Seacrest and Elvis Duran for not playing his latest single, “Shame.”

“I got an issue with mainstream radio right now,” he said. “I don’t create limits for myself so I don’t appreciate mainstream [radio] not playing my song.”
He then goes on to say that when artists like Justin Timberlake and Sam Smith release a song, it gets played across all channels, including “urban” stations.  Read Tyrese’s open letter to radio personality and Executive Producer below

WOW! Did Ben Affleck Left His Wife for the Nanny?
According to Us Weekly magazine, actor Ben Affleck left his wife, actress Jennifer Garner, for the couple’s nanny, Christine Ouzounian. Garner must not have learned anything from the Arnold Schwarzenegger nanny debacle.

The couple reportedly hired 28-year-old Ouzounian from a high-end Beverly Hills nanny agency. She presumably got to work seducing Affleck soon after she started caring for the couple’s three children.
“They would hang out without the kids,” a source told Us Weekly. “And they were very flirty.”
“She says Ben really, really likes her. She’s saying this is true love,” the insider added.
This is why smart women like Wendy Williamns, Tameka Harris, Nicki Minaj and Jackie Christie keep their men on a short lease and in their line of sight at all times.


Tyler Perry shares his thoughts on the death Bobbi Kristina!
Tyler Perry has broken his silence about the death of Bobbi Kristina … but had very little to say.
“I’m a writer with no words … Bobbi Kris,” Perry tweeted.
Earlier this month, the entertainment mogul spoke out on Facebook about Bobbi’s condition. At the time, Perry was shutting down rumors that BK had already passed away.

“As difficult as this time is for people that love both Whitney and Krissi, what makes it more egregious is the blatant disrespect, lies and ignorance that are rapidly printed in this awful time,” he wrote. “It makes me sad to know that everybody wants to be the first to report something awful. So much so, that they find it OK to speak death onto those who are still alive … I assure you, the family will issue an official statement if something changes.”

But six months after being found facedown, unresponsive in a bathtub full of water, Krissi passed away while surrounded by her family. Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston’s only child together died on Sunday while in a hospice center in Duluth, Georgia.

Initial autopsy reports show that there is was no “obvious underlying cause of death and no significant injuries were noted.” The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office also confirmed on Tuesday that the 22-year-old’s body was released to the family’s designated funeral home.

According to reports, BK’s funeral is set for Saturday at 11 a.m. at St. James United Methodist Church in Georgia.

See Kandi Burruss Baby Bump!
Awww Kandi is showing that cute Baby Bump!

Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker’s little bundle of joy is growing already. This week, Todd (who stars along with his wife Kandi on Real Housewives of Atlanta) posted a photo of Kandi’s growing bump and their two dogs, with the caption:
Last week, the pair shared the pregnancy news, telling E! We’re so thrilled to announce the news of our bundle of joy, it’s a dream come true. Haven’t had any cravings so far. Right now it’s been a pretty easy pregnancy.
While it’s a joyous occasion for the Tuckers, the family is still mourning the loss of Todd’s mother, Sharon. Tuesday (July 28th) would have been her birthday. On Instagram, he shared a photo (above) of his mother, with the caption:
Happy Bday to my beautiful mom! She’s always here with me in spirit. Happy Bday mom I know your turning up in heaven! Thanks for being with me today in my big meeting. I’ll continue to make you proud!!
Kandi shared similar sentiments, posting the Instagram photo below.
R.I.P Ms Sharon he’ll continue to make you proud!


REALLY? Model Analica Chaves CLAIMS Rihanna Is Karim Benzema's SIDE CHICK?
Model chick Analica Chaves is calling Rihanna out over her rumored relationship with Real Madrid soccer player Karim Benzema. Analica claims SHE is the main chick and RiRi is the side piece! In recent months, we have spotted international superstar Rihanna and Real Madrid soccer star Karim Benzema spending some time with one another. They’ve been spotted hitting the club scene numerous times and linking up afterwards. One time, damn near spending the night at her favorite eatery Giorgio Baldi until the wee hours of the morning. Mmhmm…

While neither Rih or Karim ever confirmed or denied their situationship, it was clear something was going on. Fast forward to now, a woman has come forward claiming Karim is HER man and that she has been in a relationship with him for over a year. Oh?

It all started when these rumors started circulating:
1.         Karim allegedly “cheated” on Rih with bikini model Analica Chaves (who has also been linked to soccer player Axel Witsel).
2.         Karim supposedly DUMPED Rih to get with Analica.

Well, this clearly didn’t sit well with Analica (above kissing Karim), so she’s clearing everything up. The bootylicious bikini model claims SHE is Karim’s main squeeze and that the “BBHMM” songstress is the side chick!
She dished to In Touch mag saying, “Karim and I have been together for over a year. Rihanna is the other woman! After photos surfaced of Karim and Rihanna in NYC [in early June], I confronted him. He denied everything.”
Interesting. She added, “I was crushed when I recently found out what was really going on. I’m sure she knew nothing about me. Karim has probably broken her heart, too.”

We doubt it. Rih doesn’t seem bothered at all with romance at the moment (which she has expressed in recent interviews) and seems to be focused on her music these days.


Terrence Howard Sued for Assault, Defamation by Ex-Wife
The complaint filed Tuesday states the 'Empire' lead punched, kicked and strangled her.
Howard
The complaint filed Tuesday states the 'Empire' lead punched, kicked and strangled her.
Terrence Howard's ex-wife filed suit against the actor Tuesday claiming he assaulted her in 2013.
In the civil complaint filed in Los Angeles, Michelle Howard claims the alleged assault took place while they were staying in a rental house in Costa Rica.

The complaint describes that on the evening of July 29, 2013, Howard "followed Plaintiff into the restroom of the rental house and punched her on the left side of her face. Defendant also grabbed Plaintiff by her neck and pushed her against the bathroom wall and strangled her for several seconds," states the complaint. The filing continues he "grabbed her neck again and pinned her against the shower glass and her head hit the wall" when she tried to flee the room, leading the actor's son-in-law Billy to intervene.

"While Billy tried to pry Defendant's hands from Plaintiff's neck, Defendant whispered to Plaintiff, 'Remember what I told you in Bora Bora? That is what I'm gonna do,' referring to a prior instance where Defendant told Plaintiff that her body would never leave the island," states the complaint. "Plaintiff interpreted the reference to mean that Defendant was going to kill her."
Later on the evening of July 29, claims Michelle, he charged at her and she pepper-sprayed him in the face. "Defendant continued swinging his arms and caused Plaintiff to fall down. While Plaintiff was on the ground, Defendant repeatedly mule-kicked Plaintiff in the head and shoulders," states the complaint.

She claims assault and battery, intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress. In the same complaint, she claims he defamed her by "mak[ing] false accusations disseminated to the public through the media that Plaintiff had made death threats and other threats against Defendant and his family through various social media accounts."

She doesn't specify damages.
This is not the first time the Empire star has been accused of spousal abuse. He was arrested in 2001 on charges of assaulting his then-wife Lori McCommas, and in Michelle's 2011 divorce papers she claimed he repeatedly threatened and hit her throughout their marriage. In 2013, she received a restraining order against him on claims including the allegations regarding the Costa Rica trip in the Tuesday complaint.

Howard and executives for Fox, which airs Empire, were questioned about the accusations at the Television Critics Association's winter tour in January. Fox TV group chairs Dana Walden and Gary Newman claimed they weren't aware of the accusations until December 2014, when they were already in business with him. "A lot of the things I did were the product of not knowing how to deal with frustration, not knowing who Terrence Howard is," said the actor. "I've grown so much from anything that's happened in the past."


Officer Ray Tensing faces murder charge in killing of Samuel Dubose in Cincinnati
CINCINNATI (AP) — A University of Cincinnati officer who shot a motorist during a traffic stop over a missing front license plate has been indicted on murder charges, a prosecutor said Wednesday, adding that the officer “purposely killed him” and “should never have been a police officer.”
Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters announced the grand jury indictment at a news conference to discuss developments in the investigation into the July 19 shooting of 43-year-old motorist Samuel DuBose by Officer Ray Tensing.

Tensing has said he was dragged by DuBose’s car and forced to shoot after he pulled over DuBose for a missing front license plate, according to a university police report. Tensing said in his radio call to a dispatcher that the car almost ran over him and he fired one shot, striking DuBose in the head.

Deters said Wednesday that Tensing’s contention that his arm got stuck in the car was “nonsense.”
The officer wasn’t dragged by the car, Deters said. “He fell backward after he shot (DuBose) in the head.”
Deters said a warrant has been issued for Tensing’s arrest.
Tensing’s attorney, Stewart Mathews, didn’t immediately return phone messages seeking comment after Deters’ announcement.
Mathews said earlier Wednesday that he thought an indictment was likely “given the political climate” and comments made by city officials. But Mathews said given the evidence he’s seen, he doesn’t believe there should be an indictment.

Body-camera video of the shooting was also being released Wednesday, the prosecutor said. DuBose’s family had been pressing for its release, and news organizations including The Associated Press had sued Deters to get it released under Ohio open records law.
The University of Cincinnati on Wednesday closed its main campus in anticipation of grand jury action in the case.
Deters called the shooting “senseless” and “asinine.”
“He purposely killed him,” Deters said. “He should never have been a police officer.”
Deters said when he saw the video of the shooting, he was shocked.

“And I realize what this was going to mean to our community, and it really broke my heart because it’s just bad,” Deters said.
“I feel so sorry for this family and what they lost,” Deters said. “And I feel sorry for the community, too.”

If convicted, Tensing could face up to life in prison.


OOPS! Lauren London & Boyfriend Nipsey Hussle Involved In Car Accident…Allegedly Caused By Aggressive Paparazzi
It seems West coast rapper Nipsey Hussle can’t seem to catch a break.

While enjoying an afternoon of shopping in Melrose with his girlfriend Lauren London, who stars on BET’s “The Game,” Nipsey’s day went from “hella” good to all the way bad. The couple was involved in a car accident. And it appears the paparazzi is to blame.
Photogs spotted the actress and her rapper boyfriend trekking through the trendy city when they ambushed them trying to catch a "money shot."
Apparently, as the lovebirds tried to drive away, the paps got too close to their vehicle and one person was struck. Nipsey was heard telling the cameraman he was out of line and being very aggressive while snapping the photos.
As you can, the cops were called to assess the situation. As of now, we’re not sure if anyone will be cited, but we’ll keep you posted. Glad everyone is OK!
As far as Nipsey’s luck going from bad to worse, this car accident comes on the heels of a recent drug arrest.
The 29-year-old rapper was caught with a stash of codeine (a drug sometimes used to create a mixed drug-filled drink) after being pulled over for a routine traffic stop last month. He eventually was released, taking to his Twitter to announce he wasn’t in jail, but he never said anything about the arrest. Hmph.
