Keyshia Cole appeared on The Real daytime talk show that aired this week. Keyshia, 38, was there to promote her own talk show, One On One With Keyshia Cole.

The R&B Diva and mother of two shared the pros and cons of hosting her own talk show and the 14-year age difference between her and boytoy Nico.

Keyshia explained the excuse Nick Cannon gave her when he showed up 45 minutes late for a guest appearance on her show.

She said Nick told her, "'like I'm on my way to the airport and I had to get my bags,' and all that. And I was like, 'Nick, we don't care about that!'"

"Listen, if I've ever been late for anything, right, I apologize! Now I understand! Now I understand how serious, and, then like, we go through waiting for a guest," Keyshia told the ladies.

"‘Cause I'm used to being the artist and being like, 'Okay, I need my hair right. I need my lip right. I need my clothes right.' And not really taking into consideration what the talk show host or the radio host.

"I'm like - Nick Cannon was forty five minutes late, and, well, thank God my boyfriend was there because I was gonna have him - he's a, he's a lyricist and an artist. So, I had him on my first episode. And thank God! But, he was sweating bullets up there! Okay? He was like, I was asking him all kinds of questions, 'So, how is it to be with a woman like me?'

"He was like, 'Wait a minute! This is crazy!' So, then it was like Nick showed up, he could leave and was like, 'Thank God. It's like all over.' But, no, I mean it was cool because, um, you know - I mean - I appreciate Nick coming through and supportin', you know. He was one of - the first guest. So, that's, like, okay.

"I never told her that," she adds. "Literally, Oprah went to one of my weddings and I never had the guts to say, 'Oprah, I was always trying to look like you!'"

Viola admits she has more confidence in herself now and she's happy with the beautiful African woman she sees in the mirror.

"Now, I don't want to look like anyone other than me," she adds. "I love embracing my nose and my lips. It's like all of a sudden, I was like, 'Viola, that's what your lips always looked like? Why'd you have a problem with that?' I love wearing red lipstick, which took me a long time, because I think my lips are fabulous."

Chrissy Teigen confessed she and husband John Legend sleep in separate bedrooms because her home is haunted by a ghost. The 34-year-old former swimsuit model tweeted that she suspects her house is haunted by "some kind of ghost or evil spirit."

Chrissy, who married John in 2013 in Italy, took to Twitter on Wednesday to explain the terrifying nightmares that led her to sleep in a different bedroom. She said the nightmares are exhausting and she often awakens at night drenched in sweat.

"I know this sounds insane but I think I have some kind of ghost or evil spirit and I have the worst nightmares," Chrissy told her followers on her Instagram Story. "I will go to bed super early and I will sleep so long and I will wake up soaking wet because I have just the most terrible nightmare. It's always the same nightmare."

While she didn't explain the content of her nightmares, the star added: "I'm tired of it and it's ruining my life, so I'm sleeping in a different room tonight. We'll see if this makes a difference."

The Lip Sync Battle star apologized for her rich white privilege, explaining "I understand it's very privileged to have an extra room, but I do. I need the energy, I need to feel good. I can't live this way anymore. I cannot do this nightmare anymore. It's driving me insane. It's literally making me crazy. I have to stop, it has to stop."

Love Is Blind cast member Carlton Morton threatened suicide after social media users refused to support him when he came out as bisexual.

Love is Blind is produced by power couple Nick and Vanessa Lachey. The show followed 20 couples who meet for the first time on a blind date. The couples speak to each other through walls before meeting face to face.

If they click, their engagement is fast tracked and they proceed to get married or abandon their partner at the alter.

Contestants Carlton and Diamond Jack did not make it to the alter after he confessed that he was bisexual.

Diamond was upset that Carlton kept his secret lifestyle from her. According to theJasmineBrand.com, Carlton and Diamond forgave each other on the reunion special.

Carlton's confession didn’t bring him the attention and press coverage that he had hoped for. Oprah and Ellen Degeneres didn't call him to book interviews.

He went off the deep end when the Black LGBT and T media accused him of using the bisexual lifestyle for attention.

The overly emotional Carlton took to social media to complain that his "celebrity friends” abandoned him after he came out.

Feeling alone and depressed, he wrote a series of suicidal notes to manipulate his social media followers into expressing false sympathy for him.

In a goodbye message on his Instagram story, Morton wrote:

"Today is one of those days where I don't want to be here. I feel extremely alone and unsupported. I've cried for help since Feb. 13. No one cares."

In another post, he wrote: "Goodbye everyone."

As a result of his Diva antics, the hashtag #BisexualMenExist trended on Twitter.com.

A Texas judge has denied a motion filed by Carl Crawford's 1501 record label to lift Megan Thee Stallion's restraining preventing him from blocking her album release on Friday.

Crawford, CEO of 1501 Certified Entertainment, filed an emergency motion on Wednesday to dissolve a temporary restraining order preventing him from blocking her music release.

Photo by Mike Zarrilli/Getty Images

The former Los Angeles Dodgers star argued that she had no right to take the label to court in the first place, because he still has an ironclad contract that she signed.

But District Court Judge Beau A. Miller denied Crawford's motion, leaving the restraining order in place.

The judge, who must have been swayed by Megan's ample ASSets, stated simply, "the album at issue may be dropped for distribution beginning March 6, 2020."

Judge Miller also turned his attention to music honcho J. Prince, who sent subtle threats to Jay-Z and Roc Nation via social media, putting them on notice that he won't tolerate them trying to shake down 1501.

In an Instagram post on Wednesday, J. Prince called out New York labels for stealing artists, which he says is a common practice.

"This is the same technique of the culture vultures. I didn't allow this to happen to me when New York and LA record labels attempted to take my artists - so they labeled me as malicious for fighting back. I didn't allow it then so I damn sure ain't gonna allow it to happen to 1501 records or any other independent record labels that I'm associated with."

Prince addressed Megan directly for allegedly running to Roc Nation and turning against Crawford who put her on.

But the judge ordered J. Prince to refrain from making "threatening or retaliatory social media posts or threats against" Megan, her agents, or her representatives.

The judge also slapped a gag order on Megan and Crawford, who both took to social media to air out their side in the grievance.

Both parties are prohibited from "communicating with the media concerning the underlying issues in this case without court approval."

In a tearful video on her Instagram stories on Sunday, Megan, whose real name is Megan Pete, complained the contract was one-sided and unfair when she signed it as a naive 20-year-old.

But Crawford hit back, telling Billboard magazine that Megan is a fraud and a liar. He said she was not the innocent 20-year-old signing her first record deal.

He insists she was 23 when she signed, which makes her 28 now, not 25 as she claims.

"You wasn't 20, you were 23 years old. You was a grown up. You're just a liar," Crawford said.

Lizzo has accused popular video-sharing site TikTok of removing video clips of her wearing skimpy bathing suits that barely cover her ample curves.

The 31-year-old singer took to the app on Wednesday to share a new video of herself lip-syncing along to a song which repeatedly features the words "I know".

The clip was accompanied by text which read: "TikTok keeps taking down my videos with me in my bathing suits but allows other videos with girls in bathing suits. I wonder why?"

Implying the videos were being snatched down because of her morbid obesity, Lizzo added: "TikTok... we need to talk" and concluded her post with a single angry-looking emoji.

TikTok has yet to respond to the "Truth Hurts" singer's allegations.

TikTok is a video-sharing app that is wildly popular with children, adolescents and teenagers. Adults have flocked to the app since that's where children are.

It's not the first time Lizzo has faced criticism of her weight.

Fitness expert Jillian Michaels was accused of body-shaming the star last year. The trainer admitted she was unsure why people were "celebrating her body", adding: "I love her music. My kid loves her music. But there's never a moment where I'm like, 'And I'm so glad that she's overweight.'"

Update: TikTok restored Lizzo's swimsuit videos after intense pressure from the star and her social media followers.

Katy Perry is pregnant with her first child at age 35. The "It Takes 2" singer announced the happy news that she and fiancé Orlando Bloom are expecting a baby together in her "Never Worn White" music video, which she dropped on Wednesday night. At the end of the video, the camera panned away and showed Katy cradling her growing bump.

In an Instagram Live after the video's release, Katy told fans that the baby is due this summer.

"There's a lot that will be happening this summer," she grinned. "Not only will I be giving birth, literally, but also figuratively to something you guys have been waiting for. So let's just call it a double whammy. It's a two-for.

Katy added that she's been struggling with pregnancy cravings, and carries a bottle of hot sauce around with her wherever she goes. She also admitted she's been eating "the same burrito for weeks on end."

Katy and Orlando plan a June wedding. According to the New York Post's Page Six gossip column, the pair hopes to exchange vows in Japan - a country they both love. However, their dream may not be able to become reality due to the coronavirus spread halting airline travel to Asia.

After announcing her pregnancy, Katy took to Twitter to tell her fans she was "so glad" she didn't have to "suck in" her bump any more, adding: "or carry around a big purse lol."

Women who fall pregnant after age 34 are at increased risk for complications. A high-risk pregnancy is one that threatens the health or life of the mother and her unborn baby. It often requires specialized care.

More women are opting to freeze their eggs while still in their 20s if they plan to pursue a career before starting a family.

While the baby will be the first for Katy, Orlando, 43, is already father to nine-year-old son Flynn with ex-wife Miranda Kerr.

The couple's pregnancy news comes after they celebrated the one-year anniversary of their engagement on Valentine's Day last month.

NeNe Leakes blames Wendy Williams' estranged husband Kevin Hunter for sabotaging her talk show.

NeNe and Wendy have been tight as a hand in glove for the past few months. But NeNe believes Wendy's ex prevented her from landing her own talk show that might compete with Wendy's show.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star is concerned about her immediate future amid rumors that Bravo TV bosses are trying to cut her loose.

Photo by BACKGRID

At 52, the former stripper knows she is not the ratings draw she once was. She reportedly retained celebrity attorney Lisa Bloom to file an undisclosed lawsuit.

During NeNe's visit to The Breakfast Club, co-host Charlamagne the God asked NeNe about rumors that she was in talks to host her own talk show similar to her friend Wendy's popular show.

When asked if Wendy or Kevin blocked the show, NeNe replied, "I think it was her husband."

She added Kevin was "never nice" to her and he didn't want her around. She also revealed she didn't bring up her suspicions with her bestie, Wendy.

It seems NeNe doesn't want to believe Wendy also had a hand in her talk show's demise.

Watch the interview below.

Nicki Minaj's overly protective husband Kenny Petty was arrested by U.S. Marshals on an indictment for failing to register as a sex offender, TMZ has learned.

Petty was in federal custody Wednesday after he turned himself into the Marshals.

Photo by BACKGRID

According to court documents, he will be held until he faces a judge later today. Petty's troubles began after he got pulled over in Beverly Hills in November.

Cautious Beverly Hills PD ran a background check on the Black man driving an expensive vehicle, and determined Petty was a registered sex offender in New York state but had not registered in the state of California as required.

He was arrested and released on a $20,000 bond in November.

Petty's rap sheet includes a 1995 conviction for first-degree attempted rape. He served almost 4 years in NY state prison for the crime and was required to register as a sex offender. If convicted on the federal charge for failure to register, Kenneth, 37, faces up to 10 years in prison.

Nicki, 37, apologized after Petty shoved a Trinidadian singer who got too close to Nicki during Carnival in her native Trinidad and Tobago last month.

"Allyuh like sh-t eh? I go cus all yuh real fkn stink yuh know? [Kenneth] don't understand about our culture. I apologize on his behalf. He's always in security mode. All love. Love my country to death. Love my [people] to death. Period. … I should've told him it's a very comfortable family atmosphere. He's never been to a carnival in his life. Not even in Brooklyn, babe."

Social justice activist Kim Kardashian-West visited with President Trump the same day his fellow billionaire Mike Bloomberg ended his campaign to oust Trump from the White House.

Bloomberg, 78, announced he was dropping out of the 2020 presidential race on Wednesday, the day after losing the Super Tuesday primaries.

Kardashian attended a meeting with Trump to thank him for commuting three more female inmate's prison sentences. Trump is an advocate for criminal justice reform. He has fulfilled his promise to pardon those who are unfairly sentenced to long prison terms.

Kardashian, who was a proud Hillary Clinton supporter, took to social media on Wednesday to introduce her followers to the three former inmates as they headed to the White House with her.

"White House here we come," she tweeted.

"Today Alice, Crystal, Judith, Tynice and I, along with the @cut_50 team will be at the White House bringing light to these women and discuss more change that our justice system desperately needs!"

Megan Thee Stallion won a minor victory in court on Monday when a Texas judge granted a restraining order against her record label and its CEO, Carl Crawford, preventing him from blocking new music she plans to drop on Friday.

But Crawford is fighting back, and his 1501 Certified Entertainment wants an emergency court hearing on the matter.

According to TMZ, Crawford, 38, just filed a motion to dissolve the temporary restraining order. The label says she had no right to take them to court in the first place. He says he still has an ironclad contract in place that she signed. The judge must have been swayed by her heavenly body.

In a tearful video on her Instagram stories on Sunday, Megan complained the contract was one-sided and unfair when she signed it as a naive 20-year-old.

But Crawford hit back, telling Billboard magazine that Megan is a fraud and a liar. He said she was not the innocent 20-year-old signing her first record deal.

He insists she was 23 when she signed, which makes her 28 now, not 25 as she claims.

"You wasn't 20, you were 23 years old. You was a grown up. You're just a liar," Crawford said.

According to the court docs, obtained by TMZ, Crawford (pictured with ex-fiancee Evelyn Lozada) says Megan's contract is ironclad and he stipulates all disputes between her and the label must be handled in arbitration.

He also claims Megan is guilty of booking several gigs for $100,000 per gig without paying him his cut. And he is further annoyed that she plans to release new music on March 6 -- a violation of her contract.

In court docs, 1501 Certified says she can't drop new music without the label's approval, it's in her contract. Even if she wants out of the contract, it remains in place for now, and Crawford says he's exercising his contractual right to control distribution of her music.

He's demanding a hearing today in Harris County, Texas, so a judge can hear the label's side of the story before the music comes out on Friday.

Isaac Hayes' son, Isaac Hayes III, doubts Megan has the clout to prevail in her battle against her record label.

Issac also took a subtle dig at Jay-Z, who has a reputation for riding an artist's bandwagon when they're hot and popping.

Blac Chyna suggests that her ex Rob Kardashian may suffer from a social anxiety disorder. The former reality TV personality claims her baby daddy hasn't left the house in months.

The 31-year-old single mom is concerned about Kardashian's mental state amid their ongoing custody dispute over daughter Dream.

In legal documents obtained by Us Weekly, Chyna questioned Kardashian's ability to care for their 3-year-old daughter, due to his inability to leave his home.

"Respondent tells me all of the time that he is depressed, and has on occasion mentioned that he felt like killing himself," she said, in an affidavit filed on February 18 in response to Kardashian’s request for primary custody of Dream.

"Respondent has trouble leaving the house," Chyna said. "All of the places he says Dream goes during his custodial time, Dream is going there with a nanny or family member because respondent is too afraid to leave the house."

Kardashian's request for primary custody was denied by a judge, probably due to Chyna's allegations that he is a fearful recluse.

However, in an affidavit filed on February 24, Rob, 32, hit back at the allegations, saying "I deny that I have an issue with depression or leaving the house."

He said negative social media comments about his portly appearance had an impact on him emotionally.

"My family and I are public figures. There was a time when any paparazzi photo of me immediately led to very incessant negative remarks about my appearance. So yes, for a period of time, I did not want to subject myself to that; I am not sure why anyone would."

The feuding former lovers split for good in 2017 after a year of dating.

Former Major League Baseball star Carl Crawford is speaking out about his bitter contract dispute with rapper Megan Thee Stallion.

In an exclusive interview with Billboard magazine, Crawford said he hasn't spoken with his artist since August, and she owes him $2 million for his cut of her touring and merchandise proceeds.

Megan took to her Instagram stories on Sunday to tearfully vent about the unfair 360 contract she signed with Crawford's 1501 Certified Entertainment label.

"Nothing is true that she said. Me being greedy and taking money from her, that's crazy," Crawford tells Billboard. "I never tried to take nothing from her. The only thing we ever did was give, give, give.

"She's getting $100,000 a show and she don't want to pay up. That's what the issue was about. She signed with Roc Nation in August and decided she didn't wanna pay me no more."

The up-and-coming rapper scored a viral hit "Hot Girl Summer" last year when she teamed up with Nicki Minaj and Ty Dolla $ign.

But despite the success of her record, she claimed that her label wouldn't allow her to drop any new music after she asked to renegotiate her contract for more money.

Megan won a legal victory in court on Monday when a Texas judge granted a restraining order against 1501 and its CEO, Crawford, preventing him from blocking the new music she plans to drop on Friday.

The former Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder confessed he doesn't know the ins and outs of a recording contract. He trusted his business associate, T. Farris, and Megan's late mother, Holly Thomas, to write the contract for Megan.

"You mean to tell me, you, your mama and your lawyer didn't read over that stuff every time? Stop lying," he said.

"Her mom did the contract. I'm new to this business. I let this guy T. Farris run my whole business, because I knew absolutely nothing about it. Zero.

Crawford accused Megan of lying about her age (a common tactic in the music business). He said she was 23 when she signed with his label, which would make her 28 now, not 25 as she claims.

"You wasn't 20, you were 23 years old. You was a grown up. You're just a liar," Crawford said.

Crawford disputed Megan's claim that she only received $10,000 up front when she signed her contract. Or that she only received $15,000 for a billion music streams.

He said Megan signed a second deal with 300 Entertainment and he received a check for $200,000, out of which he paid Megan $50,000.

"How she been paid $15,000? As soon as we signed to 300 [Entertainment], I wrote her a check for $50,000, and it's signed with her name on the check. We can show you the proof... I got all my receipts."

He said Megan and Farris signed a management deal with Jay-Z and Roc Nation, then sent goons to his office in Houston, Texas to intimidate him.

Crawford said he gave Megan a 60/40 deal that guarantees her 40% of her royalties. "What contract gives you parts of their masters and 40% royalties and that kind of stuff? Ask Jay-Z to pull one of his artists' first contracts, and let's compare it to what Megan got... I guarantee they won't ever show you that.

"They're holding the money, and they haven't paid me since August. She done over 15 shows. Y'all do the math. She gets $100,000 a show. She owe me, and I haven't recouped almost $2 million that we spent on her, building her up so that Roc Nation would wanna come."

He said Megan, Jay-Z and Roc Nation are taking food out of his children’s mouths.

"Where was Roc Nation at when we was grinding and riding around on them backstreets? Roc Nation's nowhere to be found. Soon as we spent our money, blow it up, now all of a sudden, these strangers and people you just met -- they introduce you to Beyonce and now we the devil?

Crawford, 38, was once engaged to reality TV personality Evelyn Lozada, who gave birth to his son, Carl Leo Crawford, Jr, 6.

After Crawford was cut by the Dodgers in June 2016, he reportedly went into playboy mode, flying women out to his West Coast home and cheating shamelessly in front of the elder Lozada, 44.

The couple called off their engagement in August 2017 after dating for 4 years.

Future Hendrix drew scorn on Black Twitter when he posted an image of Instagram model girlfriend Lori Harvey and objectified her body.

The 38-year-old rapper angered feminists on Black Twitter when he shared a graphic photo of Lori relaxing in the nude by the side of a pool.

The father-of-8 posted an image of Lori's exposed butt cheeks, and he captioned the image "Proud of u. #lifeisgood."

Future shared the image on Instagram.com not long after his ex-fiancé Ciara's husband Russell Wilson shared a photo of Future and Ciara's son in his Little League baseball uniform.

Wilson captioned the image: "OPENING DAY of Little League! So much fun! Proud of you growing up #BestDays."

Future often stalks Russell and Ciara's social media timelines and he often throws subtle digs at them out of petty jealousy or depression.

Question: Is Future being petty and disrespectful to Lori?

Irv Gotti says rappers are an endangered species in hip-hop because Black people won't stop killing each other.

The 49-year-old music industry exec shared his thoughts about rappers being killed more than any other artist.

Up-and-coming Brooklyn drill rapper Pop Smoke was killed by four gunmen who broke into his Hollywood Hills home last month.

"It's sad, it really is sad," Gotti said in a street interview with toofab.com.

"It's a tragedy. 20 years old and they took his life," the Hollis, Queens native said.

"I love hip-hop, so I hate shit like that... It happens in hip-hop a lot. And it's just -- I wish our people was different. You know what I'm saying? I wish our people would think for one second. 20 years old, bruh. It only happens in hip-hop. And I don't wish that on nobody, but, you know what I'm saying. It's not like you're ever gonna see Justin Bieber get smoked, or whatever. And it's only hip-hop.

Gotti, real name Irving Lorenzo Jr., is a music producer and founder of Murder Inc Records. He was born to mixed race Black and Filipino parents.
