Nick and Mariah is it THE END?
Sources claim Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are thisclose to ending their marriage….
According to Page Six: Mariah Carey and comedian Nick Cannon are headed for a split and “living separately” after she hired security to keep him away from other women, sources exclusively told Page Six.
Our sources tell us Carey and Cannon, the host of “America’s Got Talent,” are separating after six years of marriage. “He hasn’t been staying at their home,” one music insider tells Page Six. “He’s been living out of hotels. They’re fighting a lot.”
Another source told us Carey has suspected Cannon of cheating. And when the comic hosted pool parties in Las Vegas earlier this year, the diva dispatched a security guard to keep watch over her husband.
“The security guard wasn’t there to keep the girls away from him,” said our source. “It was to keep him away from the girls.”

Jennifer Hudson’s Half-Brother Arrested After Allegedly Stabbing a Man in the Face
Jennifer Hudson’s half-brother, Steven Simpson, is in jail for allegedly stabbing a man in the face several times — a man who was involved with his estranged wife.
According to WWMT:
It happened at the Maple Glenn Apartments on Baseline Road in South Haven Charter Township.
We’re learning this all happened at the apartment of Simpson’s estranged wife, while she was there.
Simpson has a history of domestic violence, and police allege that Monday night, Simpson stabbed the woman’s boyfriend several times, including in the face, before they ran for help.
“He said someone knocked on the door, he thought he was knocking on the door for somebody, and he started getting stabbed up,” said Torrey Hunt, a neighbor who helped the victim.
Hunt opened his door around 3 a.m. to a man bleeding and begging for help.
“I open the door and see blood everywhere,” he said. “He was stabbed in his chin and his chest, he had puncture wounds in his chest and his arms and stuff.”
Police say the victim–identified as Charlie–was stabbed multiple times by his girlfriend’s estranged husband, Steven Simpson.
“It was pretty scary because there was a lot of blood everywhere,” said neighbor Krystal Miller.
“I am thinking he could die any minute,” Hunt said.
Miller says Simpson had been there more than once in the past, screaming for her neighbor and pounding on the door.
“I hope shes alright too, obviously this guy is looking for her too,” she said.
Detectives say they are unsure if Charlie or Simpson’s wife was the intended target.
“She locked herself in the bathroom until he left,” said Detective Adam DeBoer. “It appears to be an ongoing feud over a woman.”
Simpson is currently on probabtion, after he was arrested several times in the past, most recently for assaulting his wife on Super Bowl Sunday.
“These are my neighbors; I live next to them, I don’t want anything bad to happen to them,” Miller said.
Simpson arrived on his own to the South Haven Police Department for questioning around 2 p.m. Tuesday.
“He was cooperative in the sense that he showed up for questioning, but not very cooperative overall,” Detective DeBoer said.
The victim was treated at the hosptial–we’re told he received about 20 or 30 stitches–and then released.
He is expected to recover.
Upon TMZ breaking the news, we were immediately reminded of the tragedy in which the ex-boyfriend of Jennifer’s sister Julia went on a murderous rampage, killing Jennifer’s mother, brother, and nephew.
Steven is in custody in Paw Paw, Michigan and is expected to be charged with home invasion and attempted murder.

Torrei Hart says when Black Men reach a Level of Success, they Drop The Dark For Light
Last night there was so much going on while the premiere of Atlanta Exes was on and I don’t feel like going there, but Torrei is talking about her ex and how once he got successful he started to date light skinned women, I know people think that Torrei should just let it go and stop talking about her ex, but if you think about it, this was Kevin’s claim to fame, talking about his issues with his wife so it’s only right that she repays him with the same gesture…… But I’m going to need her to not make a career out of being his ex-wife.
In a recent interview she talks about black men and when they reach a level of success they tend to trade up:
On black men dating outside their race when they become successful: “Honestly, it wasn’t all Kevin’s fault. I won’t say it was all his fault. Cause I look back now and I take ownership of some of the things I could’ve did differently. But, I did question my beauty. I did question like, wow, why is it that all black men, when they reach a certain level, they have to feel like they need someone of another race, or a different skin tone on their arm? And I’m just like, well why aren’t we looked at as beautiful? We’re beautiful black queens! You know what I mean? And I love my black men.
T.I. Criticizes ‘Lost’ Ferguson Activists: ‘What Are We Changing…Really?’
T.I. has been vocal regarding his thoughts on the troubling situation happening in Ferguson, Missouri right now in the aftermath of Mike Brown’s death — however now he’s taken to Instagram to further elaborate on his thoughts.
T.I. previously commented:
“We needed to play chess instead of checkers,” he said. “We should have waited to see if justice was going to be served first. We shouldn’t have played our strongest hand first.”
However, just a few moments ago he posted the above photo depicting a single looter inside of the now infamous QuikTrip taken during the first night of the Ferguson protests.
(To My People)Look at us. Rebels without a cause. Soldiers without a general. A lost generation. Ready for War. No strategy,no training. Armed only with our grief,aggravation, and passionate disdain for our treatment in America. Sick and tired of everything…especially ourselves. We’d rather use the tragedies of our environment as an excuse to act-out,go-off,or turn-up, rather than use our education,talents & future opportunities to get-out,speak-up,& make-a-change. Look at us… Too Enraged to sit around & do nothing. But Too Entrapped in da cycle of vengeance/hostility to do anything WORTH doing. Look at us. So upset with our conditions that we’ve gone into “Fuck-it” mode… “Fuck-the-world” “Fuck-the-Police” And even “Fuck” the wishes & request of a grieving mother,father,family who lost a son…who’s memory they would NOT like to see tarnished by OUR negative ACTIONS/DECISIONS. Naaah G,that ain’t the code, this ain’t da way. What I see us doing is just as futile as swinging wildly into the wind,waiting on the air to get tired.
One question to MY PEOPLE: What are we changing…Really? Look at us. Destroying our own community, but continuing to spend money in theirs. Refusing education… re-volving in the same cycle of ignorance instead of e-volving out of it. I must admit that I TOO am disgusted wit America’s treatment. I TOO demand change. But Goddddaaaaamn man…. Look at us!!!!! Although I too am at fault to a degree & I admit that I may not have all da answers… I do have a fun fact for you. Insanity is…Going about things the same way,expecting a different result. U wanna different result? U must take different action. What else do u expect? Look at us!!!
What do you think about T.I.’s comments? Do you agree?
Kelly Rowland & Tim Witherspoon Step Out for Lunch
Kelly Rowland and her husband Tim Witherspoon were spotted casual and comfortable as they headed out for lunch in West Hollywood.
Doesn’t Kelly always look like the happiest pregnant woman ever? We can’t think of one time we’ve seen Kelly not-smiling since getting married and announcing her pregnancy.
She’s rumored to be five months along — so it won’t be long until we get to meet baby Witherspoon! That is, unless she decides to follow in the footsteps of her sister Beyoncé.
Love & Hip Hop ATL’s Stevie J – Closer to Child Support Plea Deal
Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star Stevie J (real name Steven Jordan) is closer to settling his criminal case over 1 million in back child support with the federal government, with the feds filing court docs asking for more time before the case heads to trial due to plea talks continuing between the two.
Stevie J was arrested back in June by the Feds, all over a million-dollar child support debt he owed to one of the mother’s of his children. He has 2 kids with his former girlfriend back in 1997 and 1998 and was ordered to pay $6,600 a month which was then raised later on to $8,800. The reality star is accused of not paying his baby mama since 2001 and his back support bill ballooned to $1,107,412.
According to federal court docs filed in the case, Stevie J makes around 27k a month for his role on “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” and from January – August 2013 he made a total of $193,499 from VH1 checks. He has also made over 105k in music royalties in the past decade.
Then on August 11th, the feds filed docs in the case stating they have been in settlement talks with Stevie J in an attempt to resolve the case without going to trial. They explain the negotiations are not complete and they need longer to continue talking to Stevie.
They asked the court to reschedule a hearing that was to take place this month until September 11th . The federal government is working out how Stevie can pay back his baby mama given his surplus of income recently, along with the reality star negotiating how he can avoid a jail term for the charges.

‘U Mad Bra?’
It’s never a good sign when you have two different people sending us pictures of you. Of course if walking around in your bra isn’t a big enough red flag that something is wrong then I suppose two different pictures aren’t going to sound any internal alarms for you either.
HAVE A GREAT DAY ALL!!!
