Entrepreneur Angela Simmons was spotted chatting on her cell phone while running errands on South Beach in Miami, FL today. Simmons rocked a pair of Air Jordan Concord XI, priced at $185. These shoes caused a frenzy when a limited number of Concords were released a couple of days before Christmas.
According to UpscaleHype.com, Angela also wore a black Bottega Veneta Nero Intrecciato Nappa Convertible tote bag, which retails for $4,050.
Beyonce’s sister, Solange Knowles (center), her son Daniel Julez, 7, holding hands with his dad, J. Smith, and Tina Knowles were spotted leaving a vintage clothing store in New York City yesterday. Solange covered her face with a shopping bag to hide the fact that she wasn’t wearing makeup. Why tip the paps off to your location if you’re not camera ready?
It’s good to see Solo getting along so well with her baby daddy. Then again, her sister is probably supporting him financially. The Internet was all abuzz with rumors yesterday that Beyonce was giving birth to a baby in a NY hospital. Considering the source of that information, I don’t know why anyone would believe that ridiculous story. Doesn’t a woman have to be pregnant in order to give birth?
Beyonce and Dipset rapper Jim Jones both have something in common.
The 35-year-old rapper whose fading Hip Hop career peaked in 2006 with the release of his only hit (“We Fly High”) is being accused of ripping off one of Canadian rapper Drake’s leather jacket designs.
The two jackets do look very similar when placed side by side. The only difference seems to be the fur trim on the hoodie.
Drake recently released his limited edition OVO CDN bomber jacket which retails for a whopping $4,000 USD! The jacket features luxury buffalo leather, a silk-linked interior and a detachable fox fur trim along with real gold-plated hardware. According to Punchbowl blog, the jacket is available for purchase beginning on December 28, in Drake’s hometown, as well as in New York, Tokyo and Osaka.
Now Jim Jones is also hawking a black leather bomber jacket for $175, made from cheaper materials with a design that is similar in almost every detail to Drake’s limited edition OVO jacket.
Deion Sanders’ oldest daughter, Deiondra, is going IN on her stepmother, Pilar Sanders, at this hour on Twitter.com for slandering her daddy’s name and for playing the victim in her multimillion dollar divorce from Sanders.
According to baby girl, Pilar has been feeding insider info about the legendary former NFL star to TMZ.com and other gossip blogs for months. Deiondra wants the slander to stop. Yes, Deiondra really called her former stepmother a “gold digging hoe.” I will update this post as the Twitter rants continue.

Beyonce’s husband, aging rap mogul Jay Z, 42, cheered on Kim Kardashian’s ex, Kris Humphries and the NJ Nets at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ yesterday. Jigga showed support for his former tour partner, Kanye West, by rocking a pair of his unreleased Nike Air Yeezy 2 Sneakers in black and pink colorway. According to Upscalehype.com, the basketball shoes are expected to be released in March, 2012 and priced at $235.
You might recognize the man sitting next to Jay Z as his former trap partner, Emory Jones, who was sentenced to 16 years hard time in federal prison after he was busted for drug trafficking in Maryland.
Jay Z wrote the judge and coerced him into shaving 37 months off of Emory’s sentence by promising Jones a steady job paying $50K annually last year.
Bishop Eddie Long’s New Birth Christian Academy is closing its doors after 18 years in operation. The private school’s 200 students learned about the school closing in a letter sent home to their parents and signed by Carlton Donald, the board’s vice-chair.
“We have operated New Birth Christian Academy for several years with substantial deficits in hopes that the national economic climate would change, however, that change never materialized,” read the letter. A few years ago the academy boasted of having one teacher for every eight students.
The school’s tuition ranged from $5,253 for New Birth members to $6,198 for non-members, according to the Atlanta Journal.
The school’s closing is just another step toward the dismantling of Eddie Long’s church empire in Atlanta. The church has laid off staff after losing hundreds of members since Long settled a sexual coercion case filed against him by four former New Birth members who were heterosexual and gay.
Additionally, Bernice King, daughter of the late Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, stepped down as a church elder in May. And 10 former parishioners filed a $1 million lawsuit against Long and the church alleging they lost their life savings in an investment scam.
Long, who temporally stepped down as the church’s senior pastor this month, reportedly used the school as a hunting ground for young males to satisfy his sexual appetite. In court documents, Long was accused of coercing the young men with Bible passages and plying at least two of the boys with cash, trips, gifts and cars to loosen their sexual inhibitions.
Earlier this month, the embattled preacher’s long-suffering wife, Vanessa, announced she was filing for divorce.
Beyonce Knowles-Carter’s baby sister, Solange Knowles, has finally found a man willing to stick around for more than a month. Okay, that was harsh. My apologies for that. But Solange has had difficulty keeping a man in the past. According to BlogXilla, Solange and her boyfriend, Allen, spent a month in Paris, France with Jules, her son from a previous relationship.
Solange posted photos from her French vacation on her blog. Since this is a gossip blog where speculation runs rampant, we wonder if Allan has a job, or if he’s sponging off of Solange who is sponging off of her sister Beyonce?
