EXCITED MUCH?: Female Rapper Remy Ma Finally Set to Be Released From Prison
Rapper Papoose announced back in February that his wife, rapper Remy Ma is being released from jail in July. Recently, he took to Instagram to share the exact release date. July 31 Remy Ma will be free. The Bronx native was sentenced to eight years in prison in 2008 for charges of assault, weapons possession and attempted coercion stemming from her incident with Makeda Barnes-Joseph in 2007 during which Barnes-Joseph was shot two times while the two women struggled in a car. Remy’s her husband Papoose has been by her side since the beginning of this whole ordeal, even getting a tat of Remy inside a bottle of Remy Martin.
In a recent interview Remy unveiled that she has written over 20 books of songs while incarcerated and she wants to work with Rick Ross and the whole MMG clan when released.
UPDATE: Love & Hip Hop’s Stevie J Released From Prison on $25,000 Bond
Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star Stevie J, who was arrested Monday for reportedly owing more than $1 million in child support, is home safe in the arms of his wife, Joseline Hernandez. According to an exclusive interview granted to the Associated Press, the reality star is just happy to be home.
“It feels great. I’m home with my wife,” Stevie J., whose real name is Steven Jordan, stated shortly after posting $25,000 bond on Wednesday. “I’m just ready to get this behind me.”
As revealed Monday, the reality star missed some 13 years of child support payments for two children—a 17-year-old boy and a 14-year-old girl—he had with a former girlfriend. Documents seen by sources state that Jordan was ordered to pay $6,600 a month in child support in 1999. Two years later, that amount increased to nearly $8,600.
“Steven Jordan failed to pay over $1 million in child support even while earning substantial income from his participation in a reality-television show,” U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara told AP.
Prosecutors claim that Jordan earned $193,000 for his participation in the show and another “$100,000 from music royalties in the first eight months of 2013.”
“We plan on proving that if there is an amount owed, it is definitely not a million dollars, nor anything close to that amount,” Daniel Meachum, Jordan’s attorney, said in a statement.
We must note that in New York, failure to pay child support is punishable by up to two years in prison. Good luck Steebie!
DOING TOO MUCH OR NAH?: Robin Thicke Named His New Album ‘Paula’
Robin Thicke still believes he has a fighting chance to win back Paula Patton. The two separated back in February after nine years of marriage, but have yet to officially file divorce papers. So with the door for a possible reunion still open, Robin’s going all in by naming his upcoming album, Paula.
So, come July 1st, Robin’s Paula will hit shelves and will be an album filled with songs about his estranged wife. The R&B singer has already released the first single from the inspired album, called “Get Her Back.” Robin confesses the wrong he’s done while begging for his woman back. I really hope that the entire album won’t revolve around this. Check out some lyrics from “Get Her Back”:
I never should have raised my voice or made you feel so small
I never should have asked you to do anything at all
I should have kissed you longer
I should have held you stronger
And I’ll wait for forever for you to love me again
I gotta get to go, get to go, get her back
I gotta get to go, get to go, get her back
I gotta treat her right, I gotta cherish for life
I gotta get to go, get to go, get her tonight
Back in February, shortly after the couple announced their split, Robin grew emotional during a show in DC as he told the crowd:
For those who don’t know, my wife and I separated a few days ago. Yeah… I want everyone in here to know that I’m trying to get my girl back. You know, she told me you should go out there and tell the truth. You should tell them that you are trying to get her back. She’s a good woman, you know. It’s hard to sit here in front of everybody, but you know what I want you to help me with, I want you to help me with this next song. If you got somebody with you tonight that you love, and you appreciate, hold on tight to them. Take care of them. I want to dedicate this song to her. I wrote this about her, and I need y’all help to get through it.
When you find someone that loves you! Don’t you give up on that love!
What do you guys think? Is Robin’s decision to name the album ‘Paula’ a sweet gesture at saving his marriage or is he just simply doing too much?
YES OR NO?: Former America’s Next Top Model Constestant Yaya DaCosta Lands Role of Whitney Houston
Former America’s Next Top Model contestant, Yaya Dacosta, landed the role playing Whitney Houston over Whitney’s own daughter, Bobbi Kristina.
In the past years Whitney Houston’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina, has expressed wanting to play her mother in a role, but it looks like the model turned actress, Yaya DaCosta, landed the big role.
Yaya DaCosta was first famously known as a contestant of America’s Next Top Models’ third season. Since then she has had previous roles in Ugly Betty, All My Children, and House. Her most recent role was in Lee Daniels’ The Butler. She was an actress before she became a model and she decided to go back to her first passion, acting.
Yaya will now showcase her talents in the film tentatively titled, Whitney Houston, set to premiere in 2015 on Lifetime. The film will be directed by Angela Bassett and will follow Whitney’s life on her rise to stardom, her up and down relationship with Bobby Brown, and her drug problems. Bassett is known for playing Tina Turner in the film What’s Love Got To Do With It and for her recurring role in the television series American Horror Story.
Bassett said the following in regards to directing the biopic, “I have such regard for both Whitney’s and Bobby’s amazing talents and accomplishments; and I feel a responsibility in the telling of their story. Their humanity and bond fascinates us all. I’m beyond excited to have this opportunity to go behind the camera and into their world.”
RUMOR MILL: Does Newlywed Kelly Rowland Have a Bun in the Oven?
Honeymoon Glow or Pregnant Glow? The newly married Kelly Rowland has been glowing beside her husband Tim Witherspoon. The couple has been married for about a month and the usually sexy Kelly has worn more clothes then ever. During outings with friends and hubby, Kelly’s look is more frumpy and loose fitting around the waist.
After her performance this weekend, pictures hit the web and her fans went straight to social network questioning her being pregnant. Do you see the baby bump or nah?
You can’t deny that Kelly isn’t glowing and looks madly in love. It’s the honey moon stage and surely there is a lot of baby making going on!
BYE BYE BABY: Master P Loses Custody of Four Youngest Children in Messy Custody Battle
The crazy divorce battle between Master P and his wife has only went from BAD to WORSE. Master P’s estranged wife, Sonya Miller was granted full custody of their children due to P not attending a scheduled child custody court . This is crazy because P made it very clear that his EX does NOT deserve to be around their kids or receive any support from him, due to her use of drugs. BUT clearly that doesn’t mean anything to the judge because not only did P lose custody, he now also has to pay Sonyas $75K legal bill. Today, Master P has spoken out to reveal why he missed the scheduled child custody court hearing, future legal action he will take and more.
Check out his statements below:
At the time of the court hearing that I was not aware of, I was actually at my daughter, Italy’s school speaking with her principal. My daughter is failing in all of her courses and has 21 unexcused absences during this school year. Italy is the only child living with her mother and is not getting the proper guidance nor direction as to making wise choices. Her mother allowed her to go to Disneyland on a school day during finals week. Half of the time her mother doesn’t even know where she is or who she’s with. This is disappointing and embarrassing to me. I just got back into town from holding basketball camps in Kentucky, helping at-risk youth and have to come back home to deal with negativity in my own family. How can a judge grant custody to an unfit mother whose only motive for gaining custody is to get more money? Sonya’s only concern is herself, partying and hanging out with her friends.
Her attorneys are only involved to seek financial gain. No one is really looking out for the best interest of our kids. It’s all about money. She said out of her own mouth that she was tired of the kids, that’s the reason why I came and got them from their mother the first time. I
didn’t need the court or judge to tell me to do what’s right for my kids, that’s what I want to do and that’s my lifelong commitment to all of my kids. Sonya knows that she has a drug and alcohol addiction, everyone else will see that there is a real problem because that;s something you can only hide for so long. If anything happens to my kids while they;re in her custody, I will be suing her attorneys as well as the court system for not properly investigating this case.
You know what’s really sad? Gossip media outlets like TMZ are constantly covering this without getting real facts. I know that I’m not perfect and I can’t change anyone but myself. I’ m going to put this in God’s hands, keep praying for my family and keep doing the right thing.
I don’t know, I would assume Master P’s lawyers should be fully aware of when he’s due it court, but I digress.
SEEN & HEARD: Trey Songz Speaks On August Alsina, Chris Brown, & More with The Breakfast Club
Trey Songz stopped by “The Breakfast Club” this week to promote his upcoming album Trigga.
During his stay, Trey spoke on not having beef with August Alsina, his relationship with Chris Brown, being in love only twice in his life and more.
Peep excerpts from the interview below:
On August Alsina:
Laughs. I haven’t seen the video [of August going off at a recent concert.] My thing is when you first get in this thing and you do interviews, you’re not used to people like Charlamagne and Angela who come and have you in a trick bag. Have you in your feelings. That’s something new to a new artist. I know where his heart is. Earlier in an interview I said I rock with dude. I believe in him. I think he’s very talented. He’s dealing with a lot in his life outside of music. Y’all mentioned he lost his brother. He’s taking care of nieces and this ain’t even my business to tell this information but I feel like as far as our relationship is concerned I feel like people need to know that I’m off that. I was on that, but I think my temper might have been worse than his.
We good. I’m not into none of that. I’m trying to get my money right. I think one of the things that’s crazy about hip hop culture that you see nowhere else is that we’re always trying to bring each other all the way down. You gotta have this beef and that beef and this quarrel. I’m cool man, it’s enough room for all of us to be successful and make money.
On if he’s spoken to Chris Brown since he was released from jail:
I spoke to him this morning. He actually text me this morning. He’s out and on his way here. You know I didn’t speak to him to hear his voice but he’s out and he’s good.
On why his bond with Chris Brown is so tight:
Chris and I, we actually did our first tour together. I actually posted on my Instagram like nine pictures of the throwback moment; me, Chris, Nicki, Drake and a whole bunch of people. Chris and I did our first tour together and I always looked at him as a younger brother and now we’re adults. He was so much younger than me when we first got in the game. He was 16 and I was 20. He came out on that tour and probably did like eight dates on like a 20-show run. I remember him just blowing up. Just seeing him go from this little energetic kid that loved everything about it to where he is now. Seeing what he’s been through. Me being there earlier in his career and us having a bond earlier in his career with everything that’s happening in his life. The trajectory in my career was much slower than his. His was much more gradual. I was able to embrace and deal with things differently. I was able to jump off stage and f–k n—as up and not get sued for it. I was able to do all that, that he wouldn’t been able to do, that he would get sued for millions of dollars for.
So I just feel like at this point in his career when he’s a man and he’s dealing with a lot of stuff, it’s a lot of people who abandoned him. I’ve been his homie and right now I feel like he needs somebody he knows that’s down for him and I’m down for you dawg. Like I said I want to see us all successful. Like, a lot of people will see it like, ‘Chris is locked. This is my time. I can take that ring,’ but that ain’t what it’s about. If there aren’t other people in the genre that can push it forward, no one to compete with, that’s wack.
Big had Pac, as far as music is concerned, you had that pushing the culture forward. You had the fact that it was two greats. I just want to make sure that we push each other forward and I’m at the point in my life where I’m just so happy about everything. I’m happy about my music. I’m happy my family is taken care of. I’m wealthy. My music is sounding amazing and if I could help my dawg out in the meantime, I’m cool with that.
On if he’s going to be more personable since a lot of people feel as though they don’t really know him
Actually, throughout my career, I ain’t want people to know too much. I give you my music and I give you so much of me just outside of what it is that I do within my life; taking care of my family and CEO of my company. Relationships that people try to pry into I try to keep people out of outside of the music that I love to make.
People pry into everything. In this album, I am speaking about a lot of different things. People want to know what’s going on with me love wise. This, that, and the other. No, I’m not in love. I’m an R&B singer. I’m not in love. Have I been in love? Yes. Am I having sex after a party with three girls sometimes? Yes.
How many people can you say you’ve been in love with?
I’ve been in love twice.
I assume your ex-girlfriend got married?
Who are you talking about?
She’s not married. Nah, I love Helen to death. I’m happy for her though.
So she didn’t get married or she did?
What about her?
No, I’m just saying I’m assuming the two people you were in love with were Helen and Lauren. The two that met his mom.
Yeah, you’re right.
On why he always does songs with rappers and wanting to do an R&B Tour
I would love to do an R&B tour. I think the culture would love it as well but it’s comes to a point where it’s so integrated where the two are almost synonymous. What I love about my position in music is that I could put out ‘Smartphones’ and have ‘Na Na’ at the same time. Two totally different records, and I think R&B is in a good place, but I think hip hop has just taken over the world.
You got Katy Perry on trap drums. You got Miley Cyrus…you got Justin Bieber putting out [records with the Migos]. It’s different, the complexion of music is different. I don’t know if we need to change it or what would happen for R&B to emerge in a different light but I can guarantee that I have some great R&B music. I’ve actually played you a lot of the music from this album about two months ago. A lot of those records are still on the album. I actually added some records as well. I think R&B is in a great place.
LOCKED UP: Love & Hip Hop Star Stevie J Lands Himself in Prison Owing Over 1 Million in Child Support
According to TMZ, “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” star Stevie J just learned a hard lesson about being a baby daddy … you rack up a million-dollar child support debt and you go directly to jail.
Here’s what landed Stevie J behind bars. He and his live-in GF had a kid in ’97 and ’98. In ’99 Stevie was ordered to pay around $6,600 a month in child support, which eventually was raised to $8500K.
Sources reveal the cops stormed the Atlanta home of Johnny Cabell — Stevie’s manager — searching for Stevie who thought Cabell’s home would make a good hiding place.
They continue that, Stevie already knew the cops were searching for him under every rock in town. But someone tipped the cops off to Stevie’s whereabouts.
According to the criminal complaint, Stevie J stopped paying in 2001 — he’s never paid a cent since then. So now the tab is a whopping $1,107,412. Cops caught up with Stevie J in Georgia. He’ll probably bail out soon but then has to face criminal charges in NYC.
Days after teasing the visual for her latest single “Pills N Potions,” Nicki Minaj drops the full version of the trippy video.
Keeping things simple and going for a more beautiful, natural look, Nicki goes lowkey sexy with The Game as her love interest. The haunting track is something deep, true-to-life story for Nicki who told “Kelly & Michael” that the song represents forgiveness:
[...] what that felt like to me was ‘forgiveness.’ And just understanding that everybody gets mad, but when you love somebody, I feel like you’ll always love them. I don’t feel like there’s ever been a person that I loved that I no longer love. I just may not be able to live with you or have you in my life. And that’s what really what the song is about.
It is rumored that the lyrics were inspired by her fallout with her hairstylist.
CATCHING THE SHADE: Tichina Arnold Blasts Rapper French Montana via Instagram
Chances are, when rapper French Montana decided to post a photo of Tichina Arnold, who is best known for her role as Pam on Martin, to his Instagram account two weeks ago, he probably wasn’t expecting to generate an Instagram feud.
The rapper first posted a photo of Arnold not looking her best, with the words, “I wish Martin could see this right now. He would tear her a** up.”
The post was recently brought to the attention of Arnold, and she responded with her own Instagram post, questioning who French Montana was and what exactly it is that he does.
Arnold’s caption reads:
Man oh man. Mr. Montana, I’ve perused (read through with thoroughness and care) your #instagram profile description, pictures & posts… but despite my determined effort, I STILL don’t have a CLUE to one very simple question… “Who ARE you?”.. I mean other than reading that you’ve dated a Kardashian, and you seem to enjoy taking extraneous pictures with LEGITIMATE celebrities, I’m baffled (perplexed, confused) as to WHO you are & WHAT you actually DO? How do you contribute to society? What do you do to HELP those in need? What philanthropic works have you done? Are you on the board of any charitable organizations? Do you posses your own charitable organization? Do you own your name? How many of your followers are actually REAL followers and not computer generated? Oh.. And one other thing, if you are gonna post or repost things about other people (such as myself). FYI: Maybe you should put more effort into aligning yourself with people who can ASSIST you with building your brand for longevity, only THEN will you be prepared to (as your boy Martin would so clearly put it) “Stomp with the big dogs.” But either way, I’m pleased to know you are a true fan of the Martin show despite what criticisms you have. Your continued support is proof that for over 30 years, I have CONTRIBUTED something of VALUE on television to many people (including yourself) and many generations and hopefully more to come. Hit me up and maybe I can hook you into individuals who have “Serious Inquiries” regarding hiring you. I just need to know what exactly it is that you are SELLING, because unfortunately, I STILL don’t know. Keep your head up & GOD Bless! TICHINA … Oh! One more thing, if you know of anyone who has an auto immune disease such as #Lupus, go check out my 501c3 organization at http://www.wewinfoundation.org – Unfortunately thousands of women (and men) battle with this constant life threatening #autoimmune #disease everyday. It would be AMAZING if you made a donation instead of losing 40k in one on one basketball bets with your cohorts. Your positive & monetary support would be GREATLY appreciated. Thank you for your time.
French Montana took to his Instagram account Monday morning, reposting the same photo of Arnold that solicited her lengthy response accompanied by a new caption:
I didn’t make this picture I just reposted it like a million other people, don’t use me to plug your charity I use to be a fan Pam. I was shocked to see this pic I am not disrespecting you stay blessed
