Paris Jackson in her first Rolling Stone Interview reveals Suicide Attempts, Sexual Assault, Claims Michael Jackson Was Murdered and 9 Shocking Revelations!
Now, in her first-ever in-depth interview, featured in the new issue of Rolling Stone, the late King of Pop’s only daughter, 18, opens up about learning to cope with depression, finding justice for her father and defending his legacy. Find out more in the video above, and detailed below.
“They always say, ‘Time heals,’” Paris, who dates 26-year-old drummer Michael Snoddy, tells the magazine. “But it really doesn’t. You just get used to it. I live life with the mentality of, ‘Ok, I lost the only thing that has ever been important to me.’ So going forward, anything bad that happens can’t be nearly as bad as what happened before. So I can handle it.”
Here, Us Weekly rounds up the nine most-shocking revelations from her bombshell interview.
1. Growing up on the Neverland ranch was, well, awesome
After all, the 2,700-acre California estate featured an amusement park, zoo, movie theater and, most special to Paris, Michael Jackson.
“I just thought his name was Dad, Daddy,” she recalls, nearly clueless about his global fame during her seven years spent on the ranch. “We didn’t really know who he was. But he was our world. And we were his world.”
Though Michael offered Paris and her brothers, Prince Michael, now 19, and Blanket, now 14, the option to go to a typical school with other kids, the trio preferred being home-schooled. “When you’re at home, your dad, who you love more than anything, will occasionally come in, in the middle of class, and it’s like, ‘Cool, no more class for the day. We’re gonna go hang out with Dad,’” says the model. “We were like, ‘We don’t need friends. We’ve got you and Disney Channel!’”
But, alas, rules still existed at Michael’s fantasy ranch. “We couldn’t just go on the rides whenever we wanted to,” she tells the magazine. “We actually had a pretty normal life. Like, we had school every single day, and we had to be good. And if we were good, every other weekend or so, we could choose whether we were gonna go to the movie theater or see the animals or whatever. But if you were on bad behavior, then you wouldn’t get to go do all those things.”
2. Michael taught tolerance and acceptance
At 8, Paris concluded she was “in love with this female on the cover of a magazine,” she recalls to Rolling Stone without getting into more specifics.
Her dad barely batted an eyelash. “Instead of yelling at me, like most homophobic parents, he was making fun of me like, ‘Oh, you got yourself a girlfriend,’” Paris says.
Indeed, Michael prided himself on being blunt with his kids, says Paris: “His number-one focus for us, besides loving us, was education. And he wasn’t like, ‘Oh, yeah, mighty Columbus came to this land! He was like, ‘No. He f---ing slaughtered the natives.’”
3. She tried to commit suicide — several times
In June 2013, Paris, then 15, slashed her wrists and downed 20 pills of Motrin, hoping to escape her overwhelming depression and drug addiction. “It was self-hatred,” she admits today, “low self-esteem, thinking that I couldn’t do anything right, not thinking I was worthy of living anymore.”
For years, she’d been cutting herself and shockingly managed to hide it from her family. Before 2013, she had already attempted suicide “multiple times,” she tells Us’ sister magazine. “It was just once that it became public.”
The self-loathing began after her father’s 2009 death. Home-schooled until then, she began attending a private school in seventh grade. Unfortunately, the legend’s daughter didn’t fit in and found herself hanging out with an older crowd. “I was doing a lot of things that 13-, 14-, 15-year-olds shouldn’t do,” she reveals. “I tried to grow up too fast, and I wasn’t really that kind of a person.”
And, once Paris discovered Twitter, cyberbullying also played a role. “This whole freedom-of-speech thing is great,” she says. “But I don’t think that our Founding Fathers predicted social media when they created all of these amendments and stuff.”
She has since cleaned up. After spending her sophomore year and half of her junior year in a therapeutic school in Utah, “I’m a completely different person,” she says. “I was crazy. I was actually crazy. I was going through a lot of, like, teen angst. And I was also dealing with my depression and my anxiety without any help.”
4. She was sexually assaulted
At just 14 years old, by a complete stranger, she claims. “I don’t wanna give too many details,” she reveals. “But it was not a good experience at all, and it was really hard for me. And, at the time, I didn’t tell anybody.”
5. Paris never questioned her parentage
Since the pop icon’s death, reports have surfaced that Michael was not the biological dad of his three children. Paris, whose mom is Debbie Rowe, forcefully denies this, asserting, “He is my father.”
“He will always be my father. He never wasn’t, and he never will not be,” she continues. “People that knew him really well say they see him in me, that it’s almost scary.”
And after this interview, she’ll never address the topic again.
“I consider myself black,” she says, adding that her African-American father “would look me in the eyes, and he’d point his finger at me, and he’d be like, ‘You’re black. Be proud of your roots.’ And I’d be like, ‘Ok, he’s my dad. Why would he lie to me?’ So, I just believe what he told me, 'cause, to my knowledge, he’s never lied to me.”
6. Still, she didn’t know she had a living mother until she was 10 years old
“When I was really, really young, my mom didn’t exist,” Paris recalls. Eventually, she realized a man can’t give birth and probed her dad for answers. “And he’s like, ‘Yeah.’ And I was like, ‘What’s her name?’ And he’s just like, ‘Debbie,’” she says. “And I was like, ‘Ok, well, I know the name.’”
After Michael died, she began researching Rowe — a nurse Michael famously met through his dermatologist, Arnold Klein — online. They connected when Paris was 13 and then again after Paris received treatment in Utah. But she insists she never sought a maternal figure to guide her.
“I’ve had a lot of mother figures,” admits Paris, citing her grandmother and nannies, among others to the magazine. “But by the time my mom came into my life, it wasn’t a ‘mommy’ thing. It’s more of an adult relationship.”
7. She is adamant about her father’s innocence
At around 9 years old, she first became aware that not everyone saw her dad as the flawless superhero she did.
Plagued by accusations that he sexually molested children — he even settled out of court — Michael “would cry to me at night,” Paris confides. But hearing her father’s grief wasn’t too much weight for the little girl to bear. “He did not bulls---t us,” she says. “You try to give kids the best childhood possible. But you also have to prepare them for the shitty world.”
Knowing Michael better than almost anyone else, she has never doubted his innocence. “Picture your parent crying to you about the world hating him for something he didn’t do,” she tells the magazine. “And for me, he was the only thing that mattered. To see my entire world in pain, I started to hate the world because of what they were doing to him. I’m like, ‘How can people be so mean?’”
“Nobody but my brothers and I experienced him reading A Light in the Attic to us at night before we went to bed,” she continues. “Nobody experienced him being a father to them. And if they didn’t, the entire perception of him would be completely changed forever.”
8. Michael was murdered, she insists
In the midst of prepping for his massive comeback This Is It tour, Michael was found unconscious in his bed on June 25, 2009. He was pronounced dead at the hospital later that day. Looking back, Paris remembers his “exhaustion” from rehearsals. “I’d tell him, ‘Let’s take a nap.’ Because he looked tired. We’d be in school, meaning downstairs in the living room, and we’d see dust falling from the ceiling and hear stomping sounds because he was rehearsing upstairs.”
She points a finger at Dr. Conrad Murray, who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter for her father’s death. (He provided Michael with propofol, the anesthetic drug that he became dependent on.)
Also to blame: AEG Live, the promoters behind the concert. “AEG Live does not treat their performers right,” she says. “They drain them dry and work them to death.” She fears for Justin Bieber, who also works with the brand. At one of the pop star’s shows, “he was tired, going through the motions,” she recalls. “I looked at my ticket, saw AEG Live, and I thought back to how my dad was exhausted all the time but couldn’t sleep.”
Ultimately, however, Paris says she’s “absolutely” convinced Michael was murdered. “He would drop hints about people being out to get him. And at some point he was like, ‘They’re gonna kill me one day,’” she says. “It sounds like a total conspiracy theory, and it sounds like bulls---t, but all real fans and everybody in the family knows it. It was a setup. It was bulls---t.”
She’ll get justice — one day. “It’s a chess game,” she muses. “And I am trying to play the chess game the right way. And that’s all I can say about that right now.”
9. She has more than 50 tattoos
Nine of which are devoted to Michael. The 13-time Grammy winner often saw himself as Peter Pan (thus Neverland!) and called his only daughter Tinker Bell. In his honor, she has Faith, Trust and Pixie Dust inked near her clavicle. On her inner left wrist, she has Queen of My Heart in her dad’s handwriting, taken from a letter he once wrote her.
“He’s brought me nothing but joy,” she says. “So why not have constant reminders of joy?”

ICONIC ACTRESS MARY TYLER MOORE DIES AT 80
Mary Tyler Moore, the star of TV's beloved "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" whose comic realism helped revolutionize the depiction of women on the small screen, has died.
Moore died Wednesday with her husband and friends nearby, her publicist, Mara Buxbaum, said. She was 80.
Moore gained fame in the 1960s as the frazzled wife Laura Petrie on "The Dick Van Dyke Show." In the 1970s, she created one of TV's first career-woman sitcom heroines in "The Mary Tyler Moore Show."
She won seven Emmy awards over the years and was nominated for an Oscar for her 1980 portrayal of an affluent mother whose son is accidentally killed in "Ordinary People."
She had battled diabetes for many years. In 2011, she underwent surgery to remove a benign tumor on the lining of her brain.
Moore's first major TV role was on the classic sitcom "The Dick Van Dyke Show," in which she played the young homemaker wife of Van Dyke's character, comedy writer Rob Petrie, from 1961-66.
With her unerring gift for comedy, Moore seemed perfectly fashioned to the smarter wit of the new, post-Eisenhower age. As Laura, she traded in the housedress of countless sitcom wives and clad her dancer's legs in Capri pants that were as fashionable as they were suited to a modern American woman.
Laura was a dream wife and mother, but not perfect. Viewers identified with her flustered moments and her protracted, plaintive cry to her husband: "Ohhhh, Robbbb!"
Moore's chemistry with Van Dyke was unmistakable. Decades later, he spoke warmly of the chaste but palpable off-screen crush they shared during the show's run.
They also appeared together in several TV specials over the years and in 2003, co-starred in a PBS production of the play "The Gin Game."
But it was as Mary Richards, the plucky Minneapolis TV news producer on "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" (1970-77), that Moore truly made her mark.
At a time when women's liberation was catching on worldwide, her character brought to TV audiences an independent, 1970s career woman. Other than Marlo Thomas' 1960s sitcom character "That Girl," who at least had a steady boyfriend, there were few precedents.
Mary Richards was comfortable being single in her 30s, and while she dated, she wasn't desperate to get married. She sparred affectionately with her gruff boss, Lou Grant, played by Ed Asner and addressed always as "Mr. Grant." And millions agreed with the show's theme song that she could "turn the world on with her smile."
The show was filled with laughs. But no episode was more memorable than the bittersweet finale when new management fired the entire WJM News staff - everyone but the preening, clueless anchorman, Ted Baxter. Thus did the series dare to question whether Mary Richards actually did "make it after all."
The series ran seven seasons and won 29 Emmys, a record that stood for a quarter century until "Frasier" broke it in 2002.
"The Mary Tyler Moore Show" spawned the spin-offs "Rhoda," (1974-78), starring Valerie Harper; "Phyllis" (1975-77), starring Cloris Leachman; and "Lou Grant" (1977-82), starring Asner in a rare drama spun off from a comedy.
Mary Richards "certainly was never a character that I had to develop when we were doing the show," Moore said in a 1995 interview with The Associated Press. "Everything I did was by the seat of the pants. I reacted to every written situation the way I would have in real life."
She likened being linked with that role to "growing up with a mother who is a very famous actress. There are all kinds of wonderful perks that go with it, and then there are little resentments, too.
"My life is inextricably intertwined with Mary Richards', and probably always will be," she said.
"Mary Tyler Moore" was the first in a series of acclaimed, award-winning shows she produced with her second husband, Grant Tinker, who died in November 2016, through their MTM Enterprises. (The meowing kitten at the end of the shows was a parody of the MGM lion.) "The Bob Newhart Show," ''Hill Street Blues," ''St. Elsewhere" and "WKRP in Cincinnati" are among the MTM series that followed.
Moore won her seventh Emmy in 1993, for supporting actress in a miniseries or special, for a Lifetime network movie, "Stolen Babies." She had won two for "The Dick Van Dyke Show" and the other four for "Mary Tyler Moore."
At the time, her seven tied her with former co-star Asner for the record of prime-time Emmy acting wins. Another co-star, Leachman, later surpassed them with eight prime-time Emmys in acting and variety show categories.
In 2012, Moore received the Screen Actors Guild's lifetime achievement award.
On the big screen, Moore's appearances were less frequent. She was a 1920s flapper in the hit 1967 musical "Thoroughly Modern Millie" and a nun who falls for Elvis Presley in "Change of Habit" in 1969.
She turned to serious drama in 1980's "Ordinary People," playing an affluent, bitter mother who loses a son in an accident. The film won the Oscar for best picture and best director for Robert Redford, and it earned Moore an Oscar nomination and a Golden Globe. She also played the mother of a dying girl in 1982's "Six Weeks" and real-life cancer survivor Betty Rollin in a 1978 TV movie, "First You Cry."
Moore endured personal tragedy in real life, too. The same year "Ordinary People" came out, her only child, Richard, who'd had trouble in school and with drugs, accidentally shot himself at 24. Her younger sister, Elizabeth, died at 21 from a combination of a painkillers and alcohol.
In her 1995 autobiography "After All," Moore admitted she helped her terminally ill brother try to commit suicide by feeding him ice cream laced with a deadly overdose of drugs. The attempt failed, and her 47-year-old brother, John, died three months later in 1992 of kidney cancer.
Moore herself lived with juvenile diabetes for some 40 years and told of her struggle in her 2009 book, "Growing Up Again." She also spent five weeks at the Betty Ford Clinic in 1984 for alcohol abuse, writing that they "transformed my life - and gave me a chance to start growing up - even at my advanced age ... of 45."
She served as chairwoman of the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation International, supported embryonic stem cell research and was active in animal rights causes.
In 1983, Moore married cardiologist Robert Levine, who survives her. Her marriage to Tinker lasted from 1962 to 1981. Before that, she was married to Dick Meeker from 1955 to 1961.
Moore was born in 1936 in Brooklyn; the family moved to California when she was around 8 years old.
She began dancing lessons as a child and launched her career while still in her teens, appearing in TV commercials. In the mid-'50s, she was a dancing sprite called "Happy Hotpoint" in Hotpoint appliance ads.
One of her early TV series roles was as a secretary who was unseen, except for her legs, on "Richard Diamond, Private Detective."
She arrived at "The Dick Van Dyke Show" at age 24, a dancer with few acting credits and scant evidence of any gift for being funny.
Decades later, Carl Reiner, who created the show, still marveled at the comic genius he discovered and nurtured.
"She was a very quick study," he recalled in 2014. "It didn't take her very long."It was start of a comic legacy.
In 1992, Moore received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. A decade later, a life-size bronze statue went on display in Minneapolis, depicting her tossing her trademark tam into the air as she did in the opening credits of "The Mary Tyler Moore Show."
Full statement from Mara Buxbaum:Today, beloved icon, Mary Tyler Moore, passed away at the age of 80 in the company of friends and her loving husband of over 33 years, Dr. S. Robert Levine. A groundbreaking actress, producer, and passionate advocate for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Mary will be remembered as a fearless visionary who turned the world on with her smile
#RHoA: Todd Stewart Quits His Job to Stay With Porsha Williams
When the going gets tough … don't quit your day job. On the Sunday, January 22, episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Porsha Williams' boyfriend, Todd Stewart, learned that lesson the hard way. Things kicked off on a high note, as they settled down for a romantic date, but soon after ordering wine, Todd broke some news to Porsha that she didn't like so much.
"I don't know how to tell you," he began. "But I ran into some issues at work about social media." Apparently, the people he worked for in Washington, D.C., weren't fans of his Instagram posts alongside Porsha in a skimpy bikini. "I work for a conservative individual," Todd explained. "It was more about the attention that I brought to the company." He then reported that his place of employment made him choose between his job and her — and he chose her. Her reaction probably wasn't what he'd hoped.
Porsha called Todd's decision "hasty" and was clearly irked that he hadn't run it by her first (though to be fair, it sounded like they didn't give him a whole lot of time to decide). "What are your intentions here, then?" Porsha asked. Todd said he really didn't know. Wait … what? Porsha appropriately pointed out that if he didn't know what his intentions were with her, it was kind of lame that he sacrificed his job. He mumbled something about how he wanted to "enjoy" her.
"Child, if people lost their jobs for wanting to enjoy a girl, nobody would have jobs." This might have been the smartest thing Porsha has ever said. "Finding out that Todd has left his job for me feels irresponsible and that takes away the security in our relationship," she explained to the camera.
She then reminded him that she hadn't been looking for a boyfriend; she just wanted to have a baby. Todd said she wanted "a family," but that seemed like maybe more along the lines of what he wanted. "Your uncertainty is scary as hell," she said.
"I love you. You love me?" he asked. Despite her clear annoyance with him, she admitted that she did. Still, this rash decision had left a very bad taste in her mouth. "I just feel like Todd doesn't take things serious. It's kind of eye-opening."
Bryshere Gray, Woody McClain & Algee Smith on Working With Legends for BET's 'The New Edition Story'
Only a handful of music biopics are sacred. Oftentimes, on-screen stories of iconic artists are premature or ill-cast, leaving Twitter timelines riddled with (hilarious) slander. However, news of BET’s The New Edition Story centering on the untold hurdles of the platinum-selling, Grammy-winning R&B quintet was immediately and warmly welcomed. Proof positive that New Edition and its musical extensions -- their catalogs include BBD (Bell Biv Devoe) and solo career hits -- remain a mainstay of music.
Directed by Chris Robinson, the film stars Bryshere Y. Gray as Michael Bivins, Elijah Kelley as Ricky Bell, Algee Smith as Ralph Tresvant, Keith Powers as Ronnie Devoe, Woody McClain as Bobby Brown and Luke James as Johnny Gill. To prepare for their roles, each cast member endured boot camp-style rehearsals overseen by New Edition to learn the group’s high-energy charisma and mannerisms. "The pressure of us performing authentically and doing it how they did it was challenging," Gray says. "They wanted us to play them in the highest light."
The rigorous training for the feature film, though, made for stellar small-screen performances. It also helped the cast bond, much like New Edition, off-set. "We talk in group message every day still to this day, and it’s just genuine," says Smith, whose dad, a guitarist, used to tour with Tresvant, Gill and Bobby. "It’s good to have a brotherhood like that." "This is my first time I get to work with people I’ve looked up to; it was a great feeling for me,” McClain adds.
The folks over at Billboard snatched some telephone time with Smith, Gray and McClain to talk working with their New Edition counterparts, recording with Jimmy Jam, Terry Lewis and Babyface on the soundtrack, and what’s next for them.
How are you similar to your characters?
Bryshere: I’m similar to Mike -- with contracts. [Laughs] [I'm always thinking about each job like] how long is this for, and what am I doing it for? I’m just like Mike in that way. As far as being a perfectionist, I take on that part too.
Algee: I’m just as smooth as Ralph. In all seriousness, we really do have similar personalities, which is really weird. Ralph is never gonna try and take the shine. If it comes to him, he accepts it but he’s so humble that if he has to play the back, he’ll play the back because it doesn’t matter to him. He wants the best out of every situation. And in that sense, we share very similar personalities.
Woody: Me and Bobby are two totally different people, because Bobby’s more outspoken and super turnt, and I’m super laid-back and shy. I can relate to Bobby when it comes to performing. We have that same high energy.
What advice did you receive for your roles from Mike, Bobby and Ralph?
Bryshere: I was doing Empire and I was on tour while I was getting into [this role]. He told me, "This industry is only for the people who were born to be in this industry. It’s not for everybody.” And I really took that and developed Mike Bivins the character.
Algee: Ralph told me that I already embodied him, so he didn’t want me to try to be like him. He just told me to put myself into everything and I’d be good. Then he told me that once the movie came out, to just get ready, stay humble and stay fly. [He said,] "That’s the street combo. Humility and stay fly and you’ll be good."
Woody: Bobby just told me, be myself and keep praying. He was saying that prayer gets you through anything. I had to take that into consideration because Bobby’s been through so much. He’s been through the drugs, he’s been through losing his ex-wife and his daughter, but he’s still here going strong, and he said he can only do that with prayer. My faith coming into this wasn’t as strong as it is leaving it.
There are so many untold details of NE’s history. Were there any facts that you all were particularly surprised by?
Bryshere: You’ll be surprised at how [New Edition’s deal] was very under the table. You’re gonna see that Bobby had hate for New Edition and New Edition had hate for Bobby, but that’s what the industry can do. It can make you and your brothers fight.
Even little Bobby, played by Tyler Williams, wanted the shine early.
Woody: Yeah, the kids did amazing.
Bryshere: Shout out to the kids. They worked so hard. They were in school while they were filming.
Bryshere, you’re on Fox’s Empire. Woody, you’re filming for CBS’ Training Day while filming for your YouTube channel, and Algee, you’re recording music and filming movies. How does making this TV film differ from the other platforms you all work on?
Woody: For me, doing social media, you can sit there and record videos all day in your house. But with the New Edition movie, we had to shoot three feature films within 30 days, so we only had two takes for a lot of scenes.
Bryshere: Doing Empire, I get one take. They focus on Cookie and Lucious, and I only got one take to give you the expression of Hakeem Lyon. Playing a drama is different than playing something so fun. Doing a drama, you constantly have to cry, you gotta fight. But with this, every day was fun. Yeah, we had to fight but we had to dance at the end of the day, so it was cool.
Algee: To be honest, doing this was harder than any movie that I’ve done because there were so many elements. Our voices would be shot from singing in boot camp rehearsal than we had to go to the studio and sing the record with Jimmy Jam, Terry Lewis and Babyface. Having to go through all of that was a different preparation. It’s just a different playing field. You have a six-hour movie, opposed to a two-hour movie.
Working with greats like that, though, has to be worth it.
Algee: Working with Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis was crazy. That whole process of even just working with those guys is legendary in itself. Being able to say that we did is amazing. These are geniuses. Babyface is one of the top songwriters in the world ever, and Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis have worked with everybody that I grew up listening to. So I’m grateful that we had that opportunity to work with the real people who recorded New Edition back in the day.
Woody: The first time in the studio was the hardest because you have people like Algee, Elijah and Luke that actually really sing. I’m in there trying to sing and you see Luke through the mirror shaking his head no. I’m like, "Hey, Babyface, you gotta get them all out." [Laughs] But I mean, working with Babyface, he really put that magic on it.
Did you all pick up anything from those sessions that you’d use for your own art?
Algee: I became a better singer and actor during this movie. I just got done filming this movie about the Detroit riots in 1967 directed by Kathryn Bigelow, so doing New Edition prepared me so much for that. I had to sing in that movie as well. The movie doesn’t have a name yet but it’s called Untitled Detroit Project right now.
After The New Edition Story airs, what’s next?
Woody: I love creating, so I’m really in the lab writing some features and some series.
For Kevin Hart’s HartBeat Productions?
Woody: How you know about that? [Laughs] Yeah, I actually have something picked up with HartBeat. We’re collaborating with Lionsgate and that’s definitely in the process. I’m just creating.
Bryshere: I just got done filming a movie called Sprinter, where I play Marcus Briggs, an Olympic track runner for USA. This is Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith’s film and it’s based around Usain Bolt. It comes out this year when we take it to Paris.
Algee: Other than the Untitled Detroit Project that comes out later this year, I have an EP that’s getting ready to drop no later than April so you can be on the lookout for that.
The New Edition Story airs Jan. 24, 25 and 26 on BET at 9 p.m. ET.

New Music: Jeezy feat. Chris Brown – ‘Give It to Me’
Jeezy and Chris Brown link up once again on “Give It to Me (You Know You Want It),” a newly-leaked track that surfaced Tuesday (Jan. 24).
Over a beat that blends rap, R&B, and pop, Breezy holds down the chorus. “You know you want it,” he sings with his trademark harmonies. “Give it to me / Don’t front / You know you want what I want.”
Meanwhile, the Snowman throws a few pick-up lines into his verses. “You all that and a bag of chips,” he raps. “Shit, I’m tryin’ to dip / Let you chill at the crib, lay in my bed / When I come home, I’ll let you play with my head.”
“Give It to Me” adds to past Jeezy and Breezy collaborations, including their work together on “Pretty Diamonds” off last year’s Trap or Die 3. “‘Pretty Diamonds’ was more like the bad boy of R&B meets the thug motivator,” Jeezy told Rap-Up about the collab. “We just want to make the classy chicks feel ratchet sometimes too.”
Before that, the duo also worked together on a remix to E-40’s “Function.”
Next up, Jeezy is set to hit the road on his “Trap or Die 3 Tour,” which kicks off March 1 in Chicago. Meanwhile, Breezy is prepping his eighth album, Heartbreak on a Full Moon.

Did Mary got her groove back or nah? Someone hacked in Mary’s account and post articles and pictures of her chilling with Jason Mitchell.
Both Mary and Jason were at the Sundance 2017. I’m sure this is business related…
The pictures are deleted from Mary’s account.

Kirk Frost’s Secret Baby Mama To Join Love & Hip Hop Atlanta
Kirk Frost is adding to his storyline and not in a good way. Sources tell Baller Alert that the music mogul has allegedly fathered a child outside of his marriage and we’ll be watching the drama unfold on an upcoming season of Love & Hip Hop.
Last year Kirk was rumored to have impregnated a woman by the name of Jasmine. According to Jasmine’s pimp, Jasmine has been seeing Kirk behind Rasheeda’s back for over a year. Jasmine has since had their son, who is around 6 months old.
The plot continues to thicken, however. According to Bossip, Jasmine is suing Kirk for ditching her after she had their baby.
According to Jasmine, while she and Kirk were together, he encouraged her not to continue working as a stripper. In return he gave her a monthly allowance and car. When Jasmine broke things off last Halloween, things went sour. Kirk allegedly stopped supporting her and their child. Jasmine is now requesting that Kirk takes a paternity test to prove the baby is his, and pay $2,500 in child support.
Rasheeda is aware of the love child now, but not before Jasmine had already began filming scenes for Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. According to sources, Jasmine had begun filming scenes around Atlanta prior to Rasheeda finding out about the baby, and prior to Kirk finding out she was on the show. In fact, once word got back to Rasheeda that Kirk’s side chick was on the show, Rasheeda refused to continue filming. It was only after a long talk with production that Rasheeda returned. Reportedly, all of this drama will appear on Love & Hip Hop Atlanta’s upcoming season. Are you ready to see this tea on your TV screen?
