Solange Solange

Solange revealed her funky side on this month’s issue of Harper’s Bazaar.  She looked gorgeous while wearing several outfits created by famous designers such as a Ralph Lauren sweater dress, a Moshino jumpsuit as well as a $12,500 Chanel dress.  The photos were taken by Julia Noni.  Inside the magazine, Bey’s little sister revealed why she spends time in Cajun country so she can finish her new album.  She said:

“I figure there’s no better way to buckle down and finish it than to be as far away from everyone as possible, cell phone and computer behind. I’m not very good at writing songs when I have a lot of clutter in my mind.”

When it comes to following Beyonce’s footsteps, Solange reveals:

“My parents constantly tried to talk me out of being an artist,” she says. “They had gone through the whole journey with my sister and just wanted me to have a normal teenage life.”

What can she say about her failed relationship with her ex-husband Daniel Smith?  She said:

“In a lot of ways, emotionally and mentally, I feel far older than 27.  Just going through a marriage and a divorce—which I essentially did by 21—will give you an insane amount of perspective on life.”

“We co-parent really well.  I’m able to say, ‘I need to finish this album, can you step up and take care of the boy?’ “

She also revealed her thoughts with regards to fashion.  She said:

“You can pull images of me from seven to 14 years ago and I was absolutely nuts.  I have always been drawn to interesting pieces and colors, but I didn’t quite know how to limit myself and make those statement pieces work. It sounds silly, I know, but having space for my clothes made a huge difference. I was able to get organized, free myself of clutter, and develop a style that felt like me.”

Do you like her fashion sense?

Master P Master P

Last week, there were reports made by TMZ that Master P was living like a king while his estranged wife Sonya Miller and their four kids are on welfare.  According to Sonya, she was the one who was helping P in starting his business which includes No Limit Records.  At present, P is worth more than $200 million while Sonya and the kids are left with nothing.  In fact, this is the reason which made her decide to move in with Lil Romeo.

This week, Master P wants to defend himself by posting an open letter to TMZ and Sonya. He wrote:

“Why is this news? I haven’t been with this person in over 7 years. She has had several boyfriends since then. I take great care of all of my kids, all of their needs are being met in an abundance. I come from the ghetto, I changed my life but she didn’t want to grow with me so were not together. If Sonya supposedly helped me start any of my companies including No Limit, wouldn’t she be capable of creating some type of income in the last seven years besides turning to welfare?”

“Educated business people don’t think like that even in hard times. Stevie Wonder could see through this publicity stunt. This is hilarious. All I ask is that she take a drug test in the next two weeks and pass it. I will give her everything I have. The four minors she says she needs help with, three of them are with me, this makes no sense. I’m tired of sugarcoating and hiding the truth of ungrateful people that I’ve been taking care of for so many years. If she’s that great of a businesswoman like she claims, she should be able to do it again for herself.”

“I don’t trip on my past success. Even through the rebuilding stages in my life, I never blamed anybody. I just figured it out and worked harder. I put my trust in God, not people. You can expect people to take shots at you but I never imagined the people you take care of to turn on you.”

“I can see why wealthy people leave their money to charity because there are so many ungrateful, unappreciative family members that feel entitled even when they haven’t contributed. When things are going good, everybody loves you, but when things aren’t so good, you see the real in people and even in relationships. I’m not mad at her though. I’ll just pray for her, she will always be the mother of my children. I’m not perfect but I go above and beyond to provide for my kids and family.”

Is P suggesting that Sonya is on drugs?

Tamala Jones Tamala Jones

It was recently reported that Porsha Stewart did not get anything from her divorce with ex-husband Kordell Stewart.  But this would not matter anymore because she is currently dating a rich man, 42-year-old Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue.  He is the son of African dictator Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, the President of Equatorial Guinea.

However, actress Tamala Jones quickly reacted to the rumor and told Porsha not to take her man on Twitter:

“@Porsha4real Miss Porsha Williams..Now you know you should shame the devil & tell the truth! U grew up in the church & lying was never [ ]…You may have a man, but the one your claiming belongs to me! Check your pr or your head, but don’t step on my toes..”

 

On the other hand, Porsha denied that she is dating Teodoro.  She said:

“The TMZ report is completely false! I do not know Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue, nor have I ever dated him.  When there is someone special in my life whom I wish to share I will let you all know. It has been rumored that I am dating many people.”

So, who is responsible in reporting this rumor?

Mekhi Phifer Mekhi Phifer

Mekhi Phifer became well known in his role in Spike Lee’s Clockers.  After that, he was also featured in Paid in Full and played as a doctor in ER.  It seems that the actor is quite private when it comes to his private life.  However, when he visited Power 105′s The Breakfast Club to promote his forthcoming film, Divergent, he was open in discussing about his love life.

When asked if being married at a young age has affected his career, Mekhi replied:

“No it didn’t affect my career, it affected me and helped me learn a lot about myself. I was young, I was like 24 years old and that’s tough being that young in this business, where I was at in this business and being in a tumultuous relationship. Because you try to do the right thing, me and her have a son together. Being in that kind of relationship and that jump in my career at that age, it was tough. I can’t front arguing at home and going through all of that because we were both young and with both our A-type personalities–but we’re really good peoples now. We’re better off, like we’re happily divorced, we’re better off friends and we’re raising our son together now but at the time it was crazy. For a lack of a better term, you’re traveling and girls are throwing it at you and sometimes your catching it.”

Were they having a bad break up?  He said:

“Yeah and no, I was kind of relived. I had developed this bald spot in the back of my hair because I was stressed and I didn’t even know it was stress. But once we got separated and I didn’t make it hard, I left her with the house and all of that and just left. I left with my clothes and my whip so then I was cool. But I guess she was still affected by it, she did this whole Honey article.”

What can you say about their breakup?

Porsha Stewart Porsha Stewart

We can describe Porsha Stewart’s divorce to Kordell Stewart in one sentence: “You leave with what you came with!”

After all the rumors, reputations destroyed as well as other dirty laundry, it seems that Porsha Stewart lost enormously in her divorce settlement from Kordell.  Porsha and Kordell married in 2011 and stayed together for only 22 months.  In their divorce settlement, it was Porsha who come out empty handed since she did not get any alimony, insurance, house, lump sum or even any amount from Kordell’s NFL retirement money.  The worst thing is she will be responsible in paying her own outstanding credit card balances.

TMZ revealed:

“It’s almost like a western movie.  She gets the Mercedes she drove in on, and that’s about it.  She does get to keep the engagement ring and all of her personal crap … jewelry, clothes and other personal items.”

“As for Kordell … he gets two houses, 2 plots of land, a 2013 Mercedes and a 2010 Porsche, and his full retirement benefits.  He also gets to keep a 100% interest in his companies.”

“Porsha was fighting like crazy to stay in the house, but Kordell changed the locks on her.”

Isn’t it unfortunate?

T.I. And Tiny T.I. And Tiny

The fans of T.I. and Tiny are already getting confused about the situation of the couple.  The rumors about their divorce started to emerge when Tiny was not wearing her wedding ring anymore.  On the other hand, T.I. was making some comments on Instagram, advising Tiny to stop posting photos of her a$$.

When Tiny was asked how she felt about T.I.’s comments on Instagram, she said:

“For one, I was actually showing my side. I had my shirt up and I said something about my waist. I wasn’t showing my backside. It’s clear in my pictures when I am showing my backside, but this one in particular was not and the picture was taken from the side. Clearly, it was about my waist. I was trying to think, like, ‘Why did you say that?” But, it’s cool, we talked about it on the phone. I just didn’t understand why he had to say that there.”

“Sometimes, when you’re in a relationship, you get in to your emotions and you can’t. We would like to be able to control it, but sometimes…it’s what happens and being in love and being in media all the time.”

T.I. And Tiny T.I. And Tiny

What can she say about the divorce rumors?  Tiny said:

“I’ve been in the business long enough to know that this happens. It’s been a lot of different things that have been said about me and him and I know it isn’t true. So, I just let it fall to the waist side. If it don’t apply, I have to let it fly and that’s where I’m at with it.”

Does T.I. have a lovechild?  Tiny replied:

“I haven’t seen anyone come forth and say that it’s his child. So, it definitely don’t apply!”

What is really going on between the two?
