Eviction records on file at the courthouse seem to suggest a motive behind Tamika Fuller's demands for upfront cash of $7,500 from rapper Chris "Ludacris" Bridges. Let's just say that Fuller has a history of having trouble keeping a personal residence based on the public records I've obtained. I could go into greater detail, but it's Sunday, and I must save something for my next post.
Rap mogul Chris "Ludacris" Bridges is going to battle with his baby mama, Tamika Fuller, who gave him an ultimatum -- either buy her a luxury vehicle or she was spilling the TEA about their baby to the blogs.
In court documents filed by Luda -- and obtained by gossip blog TMZ -- he asked a judge back in September to slap a gag order on his former longtime friend because he is "a major celebrity of great notoriety."
But word about their love child leaked months before she was born.. and now Luda is fighting back by revealing the extortion attempt.
Detroit Pistons guard Brandon Jenning's baby mama is featured in today's edition of "Gold Diggers Behaving Badly." Brittany Bryant thought she hit the jackpot when she got pregnant by the NBA star. But her joy was short lived when she found out he dumped her for another groupie. Brittany spends most of her time stalking Jennings on social networks and trying to imagine what life would be like if she was a real basketball wife.
3 years ago, when former NFL player Bob Whitfield still owned his Atlanta recording studio, his ex-wife Sheree Whitfield had her hand out for more cash after she ran through the $900K lump sum he had already given her to support their 2 children Kairo and Kaleigh.
At the time, Sheree was starring in 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' and she had a fake baller image to uphold.
It's now 3 years later and Whitfield, who lives in California, is crying broke despite receiving a very generous retirement check from the NFL every month.
NFL legend Deion Sanders likes 'em young. Bossip spoke to Deion's latest conquest, Aleea Stanton, who happens to be the daughter of Angela Stanton, the woman who made all those wild accusations about Phaedra Parks.
Aleea Stanton, who was 18 when she met Sanders, tells Bossip she met the former football star through Twitter.com in 2011.
“I got a DM on Twitter from a guy saying, ‘Hey I’ve got a friend that wants to meet you.' I said, ‘Ok, cool who is it? He says ‘Deion Sanders,' and I said ‘Who???’”
Aleea said she had to Google Prime Time to see who he was.
Nia Long and Solange Knowles must have the same makeup artist. They both wear too much makeup which makes them seem insecure. All of that foundation isn't necessary because they are beautiful women. Well, Solange is a little more handsome than Nia is. Photo: Splash News
According to a credible source, Tameka Foster Raymond was paid $25,000 to speak exclusively with Entertainment Tonight. Foster's exclusive interview with ET! airs tonight (Tuesday).
Foster, 42, recently lost her Motion for a new trial after losing primary custody of her 2 sons, ages 4 and 3, to her ex-husband Usher Raymond, 33.
During the interview with Entertainment Tonight host Nancy O'Dell, Foster seemed to forgive one of Usher's bridesmaids for sleeping with him after Foster and Usher tied the knot in 2009.
"This is someone who was there when my children were born she took me to the hospital when I was in labor with one of [my children] but I hate to say but I somewhat empathize with her because I feel that she was vulnerable and she fell into somewhat of a trap," Tameka told O'Dell.
"I think that she got very close to him as a result of being my friend and I feel as though he used it to his advantage. I think we all would admit that he's very charming," she went on.
But a source close to Foster's camp tells Sandrarose.com that Usher slept with Foster's close friend because he felt "emotionally deprived of affection" from the mother of 5. "She would withhold sex to [control him]," said the source. "Her a** is sneaky and he didn't trust her."
The confidential source continued: "[Usher's] mother gave him the the Private Investigator's report of Tameka's past criminal history that she forgot to tell him prior to their marriage.
"Who did she think she was to believe mama Patton would allow her to get her paws on his fortune when she worked for so many years to help him amass such," said the source, who added: "I admire [Jonetta Patton] for that."
Another attention-hogging celebrity mother doesn't get it. Last week, actress/singer Jessica Simpson revealed a photo of her 4-month-old infant daughter posing awkwardly in a scanty bikini. Then on Friday, reality TV mom Kate Gosselin tweeted a photo of her prepubescent daughter, Mady, trying on her mom's high heels. Twitter was outraged, saying Gosselin went too far.
Dwayne Wade's long-suffering ex-wife gave an exclusive interview to "Real Talk With Kietta," detailing her rags to riches life with the NBA superstar.
In the 8-part video interview, Siovaughn Funches and her mom explained how Wade escaped an abusive home environment to move in with them when he was 16 -- to how she went from living in the lap of luxury to moving back in with her mom at age 38.
"One night it had gotten really bad and him and his sister, his younger sister, had came to my home probably at like, 3 o’ clock in the morning and I opened the door and that’s when I had to tell my mom that I knew what was happening in his home and what was going on. I had to explain to her why he was coming to the door at that hour at 16-years-old. I had spoken with my mom and I had asked her is there any way he could stay with us and not have to live in that kind of environment."
Her mom added:
"The night he came to me, he had two black garbage bags and he knocked on the door late at night. He asked me, did I mean what I said when I said that I would never let a kid be out in the street with no place to go. ‘You would never let a kid go hungry and you would always help them if they needed something for school’, and I said yeah, I meant what I said. And he said, ‘Mama, I’m home.’ So I was like, okay."
Fantasia Barrino's estranged baby father, Antwaun Cook, has apparently gone back to his wife again. Gossip website RadarOnline.com reports that Cook signed an affidavit admitting he slept with the singer while he was still married to his wife.
By admitted he committed adultery, Antwaun paves the way for his wife, Paula Cook, to sue Barrino for "alienation of affection" under North Carolina law.
Barrino and Cook have a toddler son together. They reportedly split up last year amidst allegations of Cook cheating, according to gossip mongers.
This post was edited to correct the fact that Judge Bensonetta Tipton Lane did not respond to Tameka's Motion for Recusal. It was attorney John Mayoue who filed a response. Judge Lane legally cannot respond to the motion for recusal.
Usher's attorney John Mayoue came out swinging in a legal response to Tameka Foster-Raymond's motion to recuse Judge Lane from presiding over the bitterly contested case of Raymond vs Raymond.
In her Motion for recusal, Foster-Raymond accused the judge of showing bias toward Usher's attorney John Mayoue who contributed to her 2008 campaign for re-election.
In a lengthy response obtained by HipHopEnquirer.com, Mayoue called Tameka's petition "an assault on the integrity of the court." Mayoue called Foster-Raymond's Motion for recusal "baseless, unwarranted and untimely."
He argued that "Lawyers and law firms routinely contribute to the election and re-election campaigns of both trial and appellate judges."
Mayoue pointed out that Tameka's own co-counsel was hired by a law firm that also contributed to the judge's re-election coffers.
It seems rapper Lil Wayne believes the stories about former music exec Memphitz's alleged violent tendencies. Memphitz, real name Mickey Wright, filed a defamation lawsuit today in Atlanta against his former artist (and former lover) K. Michelle and Viacom (VH1's parent company).
K. Michelle, who is a cast member of VH1's popular reality show Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, accused Memphitz of stealing her recording budget and assaulting her. But Memphitz vigorously denies those accusations.
Celebrity stylist Tameka Foster-Raymond's legal team filed a motion for a new trial today in Fulton County court, according to my confidential source who obtained the court documents.
The court documents contain pretty damaging evidence that may (or may not) prove corruption at the state judicial level. Foster's legal team has uncovered evidence that shows Usher Raymond's attorney John Mayoue did more than just help Judge Bensonetta Tipton Lane Lane raise funds for her campaign re-election.
Last week, Foster-Raymond lost primary custody of her two sons, ages 4 and 3, to her ex-husband, Usher Raymond. Foster-Raymond is seeking a new trial on the grounds that Usher's legal team may have had an unfair advantage over hers.
The motion filed by Foster-Raymond today officially stays the judge's order. Which means Tameka retains primary custody of the children until the motion is allowed or dismissed.
A confidential source has provided Sandrarose.com with documents that they say is definitive proof of a financial connection between the sitting judge of the bitterly contested Raymond vs Raymond case and one of Usher Raymond's attorneys.
The 33-year-old singer and his ex-wife Tameka Foster-Raymond were locked in a bitter public battle for their 2 boys. Each side accused the other of being negligent parents. Usher accused Foster-Raymond of being unfit and mentally unstable. While Foster-Raymond accused Usher Raymond of abusing drugs around their children.
In the end the judge decided Usher Raymond was the better unfit parent -- but parents would continue to share joint custody.
Monday night was the series premiere of TV One's "R&B Divas" starring (L-R) Monifah, Nicci Gilbert, Faith Evans, Syleena Johnson and Keke Wyatt. The show's story line revolves around Evans' plan to get the 5 women in the studio to record a blockbuster R&B album together.
But actually 'R&B Divas' -- which is filmed in Atlanta -- is just another reality show that focuses on black women and their dysfunctional relationships with men and with each other. The premiere episode set the tone for the rest of the series by highlighting each woman's flaws.
The judge presiding over the contentious Raymond vs Raymond child custody hearing called an emergency meeting after closing arguments today. This, according to my confidential source who was seated in the courtroom during closing arguments.
The confidential source told Sandrarose.com there were two high points in the closing from both sides in this case: Tameka wants her child support to increase by 3k monthly, she also wants her nanny pay to be reimbursed to her in the amount of 34k. She doesn’t want Usher to have over night guests while the kids are with him, and she is adamant about having him return her Sak’s Fifth Avenue credit card back to her.
Vanessa Bryant could count her cash for a week and still leave piles of money untouched. So why doesn't she leave her womanizing husband, Kobe Bryant? The simple answer is: status.
In a recent interview, Vanessa gave a glimpse into her pampered lifestyle that made it abundantly clear why she stays with a man who continuously cheats on her.
"I’ve been with Kobe since I was 17, so I’ve seen plenty of players, and plenty of wives, come and go," she said in an interview with New Yorker magazine. "And I think that’s why the Lakers as an organization give me the access that I have -- that other wives don’t have.” She's talking about her access to the tunnel that leads to the locker room that the other wives can't access. She has all of Kobe's money, but her exclusive access to the team tunnel is priceless.
Singer Usher Raymond's family -- including his mother, grandmother and brother -- arrived in court today to show support for the 33-year-old singer. Usher is seeking full custody of his two young sons with ex-wife Tameka Foster-Raymond, who called him a "control freak."
According to my confidential source, Foster-Raymond's attorney Lisa West spoke first. In the dramatic closing argument by attorney West, she said "Why are we here? Why are we here? We are here for Usher's latest performance."
Day 2 of the second phase of Usher Raymond and Tameka Foster-Raymond's bitter child custody hearing continues today. Foster-Raymond took the stand yesterday to give stirring testimony about Usher's controlling behavior. Foster-Raymond also said she fears Usher's deranged stalker will harm their children, according to my confidential source.
R&B singer Monifah recently spoke out about dating women in an interview with Essence.com. Though Monifah once dated ex-lover Queen Latifah for many years, she still can't bring herself to admit she's out of the closet.
"I hate the term," she says, "because I've never been anything but who I am, and I've lived my authentic life."
Monifah, 41, is one of 5 R&B singers featured in a new reality TV series titled "R&B Divas," premiering Aug. 20 on TVOne. The series also stars Faith Evans, Nicci Gilbert, Kiki Wyatt, and Sylena Johnson. The series centers around the women's lives as they work together on a R&B compilation album.
According to Michelle of Straightfromthea.com, rapper Lil Scrappy proposed to his long-suffering baby mama, Erica Dixon. Before you get excited, try to remember that reality TV shows are about as "real" as a $3 dollar bill.
Love & Hip Hop Atlanta's script called for Scrappy to "date" reality TV star Buckeey (who is already in a longterm relationship with an Atlanta photographer). So I knew something had to give for the reunion.
Bow Wow's baby mother's sister put him on blast on Twitter.com for allegedly neglecting his adorable baby daughter, Shai. Among other things, Najah Chavis, Joie Chavis' sister, accuses Bow Wow and his mother, Teresa Caldwell, of not visiting Shai regularly and not contributing financially to her maintenance and upkeep. There is also an unconfirmed rumor that Shai has Down's syndrome.
Androgynous rapper Tyga allowed himself to be photographed with his pregnant muse, former stripper Chyna Blac. As you know, Tyga knocked up Chyna just minutes after he met her in a Miami strip club months ago. Meanwhile, according to my west coast connect, Tyga is telling friends that he can't stand the sight of Chyna. My source tells me that there is a lot of screaming and plate throwing in the Tyga household lately.
In fact, the air is so charged with static that Tyga has reportedly taken up temporary residence with someone else......
Singer Fantasia took to her Instagram page Tuesday to slam rumors that she is pregnant with her 3rd child. Fantasia recently gave birth to a boy, her first child with estranged baby daddy Antwaun Cook.

Gossip website TMZ.com reports that Usher Raymond's bitter ex-wife Tamka Foster plans to use Usher's stalker against him in court.
The deranged stalker, Darshelle Jones-Rakestraw, 26, was arrested Sunday morning after John's Creek cops found her using her iPad on Usher's front porch. Police charged Jones-Rakestraw with disobeying a criminal trespass warning issued to her the day before.
Sources tell TMZ Tameka is scared for her kids' safety since Jones-Rakestraw was able to get all the way to Usher's home, even though he lives in a gated community and has a security team.
