Ne-Yo Ne-Yo

R&B star Ne-Yo explained about the comments that he made with regards to the unfair treatment that Chris Brown received from the U.S. authorities.  Ne-Yo asserted that despite the fact that Brown commited some “serious mistakes” but he has been “paying for them”.

According to the So Sick hitmaker, Brown received unfair treatment due to his star status.  Ne-Yo said:

“The system likes to make an example of celebrities, that’s all it is. Because he (Brown) is who he is they’re making an example of him. It’s not right but it is what it is.”

2 Chainz 2 Chainz

2 Chainz is now being sued by a certain woman named Tina for allegedly ruining her reputation.  It all started when Tina was being filmed backstage during a concert and she was given the label of THOT.  On the viral video entitled “#IsThisYoThot” Tina was spotted entering backstage and searching for Cap 1, 2 Chainz’s friend.  Chainz quickly asked his crew:

“Is this yo thot?”

Despite the fact that Tina was already informed about the recording, she did not seem to mind at all. In the video, she says:

“Aww sh-t! This is going on a blog, forreal?! This is going on a blog and you’re really recording? Do I look good? You guys can follow me at Iluvtinaa on Instagram.”

Now that the video went viral, Tina is fighting back.  She posted on her Instagram:

“I feel like @hairweavekiller [2 Chainz] should feel as much embarrassment as I have endured these last couple of days for what he has done to my life, he has not apologized publicly and tries to contact me privately. Everyone re post this at @breakfastclubam@cthagod @angelayee @djenvy because 2 chainz should be the #donkyoftheday let’s get me on the breakfast club so I have a chance to tell my side of the story!”

“I’m at my lawyers right now, finalizing the paperwork, be prepared for a civil lawsuit @hairweavekiller@caviardreamz_ you had no right do ruin my life and tarnish my image like this! Now you will both answer for it!”

Do you agree that Tina should sue 2 Chainz?

Ray Rice and Janay Palmer Ray Rice and Janay Palmer

On Feb. 15, NFL’er Ray Rice allegedly hit his fiancee, Janay Palmer.  The incident took place at the Revel Casino.  On March 27th, the grand jury in Atlantic County decided to indict the player on the charge of aggravated assault.  Initially, it was just a case of simple assault but the prosecutors decided to turn it over to the grand jury and the charged was raised to aggravated assault.  If convicted, Rice could get imprisoned for three to five years.

According to Ray’s attorney, Michael Diamondstein:

“On behalf of Ray Rice, we vehemently deny he committed aggravated assault. We think the matter of the charges involved will not be substantiated. Ray and Janay Palmer are together. They’re in counseling and happy. Neither wish to see the other prosecuted. For some reason the State of New Jersey prosecuted. As always, we only hope the public reserves judgement until the facts are brought to light.”

According to Ray’s team, the Baltimore Ravens:

“This is part of the due process for Ray. We know there is more to Ray Rice than this one incident.”

Should Rice be indicted?

Fouls of the Courts, slated for an August, 2014 pub date, will share intimate details of Lopez’s affair with O’Neal including never-before-revealed information about O’Neal’s personal life and upbringing as shared by O’Neal to Lopez during their affair. Lopez will also expose the off-court bullying that takes place among sports superstars including O’Neal’s intimidating and threatening behavior when their affair ended and the aggressive coercion she received from J.J. Redick to abort their unborn child with the infamous “contract to kill”.  Lopez’s book will serve as an eye-opening perspective on the power these megastar sports figures yield and choose to exercise, and a cautionary tale to others seduced by their fame, wealth and attention.”

Alexsandra Wright and son Nixon Alexsandra Wright and son Nixon

Last month, Alexsandra, the mother of Matthew Knowles’ son, is claiming that she did not receive any child support from Beyoncé’s father.  This week, Matthew asked the court to reduce his monthly child support since he is only earning a lesser amount compared those days when he was still managing Beyoncé.  Instead of paying $12,000 a month for child support, he wants it to be reduced to $2,485 a month.

Alexsandra expressed that she was disappointed, saying:

“This is his child, its a boy, its been 5 years. I’ve never spoken, I’ve been respectful of our relationship. I’ve never talked about it or stepped out of line. I followed the letter to the law, the stipulated judgments to the law. It feels like he’s a little bit of an outlaw and has chosen to not acknowledge any of it and punish me all the way to the finish line”

Alexsandra Wright, Mathew Knowles and son Nixon Alexsandra Wright, Mathew Knowles and son Nixon

She further added:

“More than anything he raised two children and was very active in their lives and they turned out very well. So why he’s choosing to not acknowledge his only son, I don’t know. It’s disappointing and also what’s disappointing is that I’m the only parent taking responsibility at this point.”

Chris Brown Chris Brown

After staying for 95 days in the anger management rehab, the singer appeared on the court hearing for his probation.  Unfortunately, the judge ordered him to return back to the rehab until the time that the trial for his assault will start on April 17th.

Aside from this, he was also diagnosed with bipolar disorder based on the documents of the court.  It states:

“Mr. Brown became aggressive and acted out physically due to his untreated mental health disorder, severe sleep deprivation, inappropriate self-medicating and untreated PTSD.” The facility did not give any explanation with regards to the real cause of PTSD. However, the letter also revealed that Chris is currently taking medications for his bipolar disorder and other conditions.

Chris is now doing different relaxation exercises based on the letter.  During his stay in the facility, he is negative on drugs along with weed.

On the contrary, it’s good to see that Chris is getting the right treatment.

Gabby Union Gabby Union

Gabrielle Union looked so lovely in her blue dress on “The View.”  She visited the show in order to promote the finale of “Being Mary Jane” which will happen  tonight.  Aside from this, Gabby also talked about the lawsuit that she filed against her former employer due to a rape incident.  She revealed that she is a strong survivor.  Gabby was raped when she was still 19 years old while she was at work.

Gabrielle Union also revealed that she hates being the victim.  She said:

“I got sick of people letting me off the hook. Being a victim is so comfortable. People give you attention, people are nurturing, they’re basically what you’ve wanted your whole life without something bad happening. So, when something catastrophic happens, everyone rallies around you. You’re getting all the attention, love and support you’ve always wanted. But it’s not for something positive. I hated that. I hated feeling like a victim. I hated the cloak of victimhood.”

Gabby Union Gabby Union

She further added:

“They were going to allow me to be a victim and not success and not achieve any of my goals and not step outside the box.  I want to embrace being a survivor. Because that’s who I am. I wasn’t raised to be coddled. I was raised to be an independent woman, standing on my own two feet.”

Ludacris Ludacris

Ludacris just made one of the surprising moves during his custody fight with his latest baby’s mother Tamika Fuller.  After claiming that he is not capable of paying for the child support, he now wants to have full custody.

Ludacris also admits that he was financially hurt because of the death of Paul Walker, his co-start in Fast and Furious 7.  What’s more is he is also asking for Tamika to pay him for child support.

According to TMZ:

“The rapper now says in legal docs he’s a “fit and capable parent” and should get full physical custody. He offers up his parental resume, saying he’s always been “an active father” to his 12-year-old girl.”

“Now the plot thickens.”

Ludacris Ludacris

“Luda has also asked the judge to force Tamika to pay HIM child support. That’s interesting, because Tamika was asking for $15K a month in child support and Ludacris pleaded poverty, saying Paul Walker’s death derailed “Fast & Furious 7″ and his cash flow dried up. The judge awarded her $7K a month.”

Isn’t it interesting?
