Comedian Faizon Love and TV personality Towanda Braxton sat in for Majic 107.5/97.5 radio host Ryan Cameron who is on vacation. Also making an appearance on Thursday's Ryan Cameron Uncensored show were Towanda's current boyfriend Sean Hall and special guest - "President Of R&B" Johnny Gill.

During the celebrity-driven Ryan Report, Faizon recalled seeing Towanda's famous sister, Toni Braxton, out & about with the late rapper, Eric "Eazy-E" Wright.

We all know Eazy-E got around, but we didn't know Toni was one of his sexual conquests.

Towanda immediately questioned Faizon's recollections, but the portly comedian stood firm. Johnny, who knows the Braxton family well, couldn't confirm Faizon's report and he couldn't stop laughing.

Faizon recalled seeing Toni hopping out of a brand new BMW that Eazy E owned, down to the paint color. There were skeptical looks all around the room, especially from her sister, Towanda, who quickly got Toni on the phone.

Toni is engaged to Cash Money Records founder, Bryan "Baby" Williams, who still has money problems that she may or may not be helping him to resolve.

Listen to the audio below to find out if Toni Braxton ever dated Eazy E or comedian Chris Tucker!

The beef between rapper Drake and street-wear designer Don C escalated when Drake's Hidden Hills, California home and OVO store were vandalized.

According to published reports, the vandalism occurred after the Toronto rapper sent a private message to Don C's wife, Kristen Noel Crawley, on social media, asking her to intervene in his squabble with her husband.

A video making the rounds on social media shows the OVO storefront in Los Angeles covered in red spray paint. The message reads: "Leave L.A."

Drake's Hidden Hills mansion was also vandalized over night.

Former friends Drake and Don C are both signed to Nike, designing high-profile sneakers for the sportswear giant.

It is also being reported that someone is surveilling Drake's father, Dennis Graham.

Rapper Snoop Dogg is mourning the loss of his 10-day-old grandson, Kai Love. Kai is the third child of Snoop Dogg's 25-year-old son, Corde Broadus, who revealed his newborn died on Wednesday, Sept. 25.

Corde posted a video online of his daughter kissing Kai, who never left the neonatal intensive care unit at the hospital where he was born on Sept. 15.

The grieving dad also shared the sad news on his Instagram account, writing: "Kai Love 9/15/19 – 9/25/19 My Son Kai brought so much love and positivity into this world. His energy will live on and these 10 days of love will always be special to us. Let's all cherish life and those we love while we are here."

The baby's cause of death was not announced.

Snoop's wife, Shante, dedicated a heartfelt song to her late grandson on Thursday and posted video of herself tearfully singing along to The Dells' hit "The Love We Had Stays On My Mind". Snoop has yet to address the tragedy.

Kai was Snoop and Shante's fifth grandchild. Snoop and Shante, both 47, have three adult children, Corde, Cordell, and Cori.

Kandi Burruss and husband Todd Tucker are expecting another child via in vitro fertilization (IVF) and a surrogate.

According to editors at E!, The Real Housewives of Atlanta star and her husband Todd will soon add another bouncing baby to their family.

WENN.com

The former Xscape star's surrogate journey will be documented on the upcoming season 12 of RHOA.

Though IVF was routine among white Hollywood stars for decades, the IVF trend among urban stars was popularized by part-time singer Beyonce Knowles-Carter, 39, who reportedly had all three of her IVF children delivered via surrogates.

Kandi took advantage of IVF to conceive her son Ace Tucker and deliver him herself.

Earlier this year, the 43-year-old reality star and part-time singer expressed her hopes to expand her family to include another baby.

Paras Griffin/Getty Images

"It was a blessing we was able to get (our son) Ace through IVF, but in the process of doing IVF, we still have two more embryos. And with that being said, as soon as we had Ace, we knew that we would want to possibly use our other embryos, but I had a high-risk pregnancy last time, so that's why we decided we would consider surrogacy," Kandi explained to The Daily Dish. "Todd and I are both nervous about it. I think it's easier for Todd to handle or deal with because as a man he's used to somebody else carrying the baby."

Kandi also got advice on the process from openly ghey TV host Andy Cohen, who welcomed a son in February 2019 via surrogate.

"I had made a comment. I said something like, 'I guess I'm gonna have a baby mama.' And he said to me, 'Don't you ever say that because you are the mother,'" Kandi recalled during an appearance on Busy Tonight. "'And to say she's your baby's mom is taking away from you.' It made me feel better."

Kandi is already mom to daughter Riley, 17, and Todd is dad to daughter Kaela, 22.

Tekashi69 reportedly turned down the opportunity to enter the United States Federal Witness Protection Program. The 23-year-old rapper considered entering the program after testifying against fellow members of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods street gang.

Last week, the troubled rapper testified that fellow rappers Jim Jones and Cardi B were involved with the Bloods gang.

He also admitted he helped try to kill a rival gang member, as part of a plea bargain to avoid a potential 47-year prison sentence.

MediaPunch / BACKGRID

While Tekashi 6ix9ine, real name Daniel Hernandez, was mocked by fellow rapper Snoop Dogg for being a "snitch", TMZ reported the rapper rejected an offer to enter the program because he wants to revive his recording career once he's freed from prison.

TMZ added that, instead of government-funded protection, he'll hire his own 24/7 security team to guard him and his family.

Although he's currently behind bars without bond, Tekashi apparently believes he'll be able to pick up his music career once he's out of jail - as early as next year, as part of his plea bargain with federal prosecutors.

Tekashi was expected to go into the witness protection program, but he was told he would have to pay to remove his distinctive tattoos.

Tekashi's trial is expected to wrap on Thursday. The trial will be documented in the upcoming Snapchat series Tekashi69 Vs The World, which is expected to drop soon.

Latin Grammys bosses defended this year's Latin Grammy nominations following social media attacks from urban acts who were shut out of the major categories.

Daddy Yankee (pictured above) and J Balvin led the backlash following the announcement of the nominations on Tuesday, Sept. 24. Critics claimed the Latin Recording Academy voters favored Latin artists for the top prizes, while ignoring urban artists.

These artists weren't included in the Record of the Year, Song of the Year, or Album of the Year categories - despite the fact they dominated streaming services over the last year.

WENN.com

Balvin (pictured) wrote, in Spanish, "Without reggaeton, there are no Latin Grammys."

While Daddy Yankee added:

"Despite being nominated, I don't agree with the way they treated the genre and a lot of my colleagues. Remember one very important thing: Their platform was not the one that created this movement. This goes beyond a prize. This is culture, credibility, relevance, and RESPECT."

Latin Recording Academy bosses released a statement on Wednesday, denying the allegations:

"We respect and admire all the genres that compose the world of Latin music. In 2004, The Latin Recording Academy led the charge for recognizing reggaeton (urban) in several categories, adapting to the evolution of music. The Latin Recording Academy has followed a strict voting process for the past 20 years. The members, through their votes, select what they believe merits a nomination.

"The Academy has never influenced their decisions, have always honored, and respected their elections, even if there are people who do not agree with the results. Nevertheless, we hear the frustration and discontent. We invite the leaders of the urban community to get involved with the Academy, to get involved with the process, and to get involved with discussions that improve the Academy. At its core, The Latin Recording Academy belongs to its members, from all genres, and our doors are always open. Together we can all make it work. Let’s do it!"

The Latin Grammys will take place in November.

Pregnant singer Cassie Ventura, 33, now goes by the name Cassie Fine, after tying the knot with ex-boyfriend Sean Combs' personal trainer, Alex Fine, 26.

The wedding news was revealed by officiant Peter Berg, who took to Instagram to share a snap of Cassie and Alex during the intimate ceremony off the cliff sides of Malibu, California, and wrote: "By the power vested in me…. @alexfine44 n @cassie Long may you ride!”

In the image, Cassie is seen showing off her growing baby bump in an off-the-shoulder white dress, paired with a white lace veil as she holds hands with Alex, who looks suave in his suit and tie.

It's unclear exactly when the wedding took place, but Cassie and Alex had revealed their intention to wed by picking up a marriage license back in August (19), WENN.com reports.

Cassie, who split from music mogul Diddy late last year after cheating on him with his personal trainer, is expecting a baby girl with Fine.

Combs, 50, reportedly took the break up hard. Particularly since he assumed he had Cassie under his complete control.

But sources say Cassie outgrew Combs, and she saw her chance to escape after his baby mama, Kim Porter, died of double pneumonia last year at age 47.

Friends say Combs was so distraught over Kim's death, that he failed to notice Cassie was head over heels in love with his personal trainer.

"She found true love with Alex," said the source.

Malik Yoba stormed off the set of an interview with The Root after he was questioned about soliciting a teenage transgender street walker.

Yoba, 52, made headlines last month after he admitted he was sexually attracted to males who wear feminine attire.

Insisting he is a heterosexual male who loves "all women," Yoba called on Black men to set aside their personal beliefs and consider having relationships with male-to-female (MtF) transgenders.

In a lengthy post that has since been deleted, Yoba introduced his Caucasian "girlfriend" who was born a male named Brad "BJ" Hendrix.

He called BJ "the most incredible woman I've ever had the pleasure of loving. My truest reflection ever!"

The NY Undercover actor appeared on numerous urban radio and TV talk shows to discuss his transgender obsession. But a recent interview didn't end well.

Via Vlad TV -- "During a recent interview with The Root, Yoba was asked about the allegations and became irate. "It's a set up. I don't like this. We said we were going to talk about policies. I don't appreciate this at all. This is not what we f*cking discussed. We sat for four f*cking hours. We sat for four f**king hours," the actor yelled. "F**k you! This is my f**king life," said Yoba before storming off."

Rapper Tip "T.I." Harris felt "exploited" when he and his long-suffering wife Tameka Harris attended Kanye West's Sunday Service at the invitation of mega church leader Jamal Bryant.

T.I. explained what was going through his mind in the photo below as he attended Kanye's Sunday service at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Atlanta last weekend.

The "I'm Serious" rapper captioned the image, "Yeaaahhh Maaaan We MUST discuss what caused this look on my face in Sunday Service...."

T.I. said he was offended by the church shaking him down for a generous tithe before the service.

"When we sat down there was a whole new agenda. It was like they rung the red bell at the Player's Club," T.I. said, referring to the hit movie starring the late comedian Bernie Mac, and actors Jamie Foxx and LisaRaye.

“It's not that I have [anything] against pastors or against preachers so-to-speak. It's just I've been raised in the trenches and I was taught to peep game. You ain't [about to] run no game on me. I will not be extorted."

T.I.'s statement prompted Byrant to deny the allegations. In short, Bryant claims he nor his church put pressure on the rappers to open their wallets and tithe to the church.

"I don't want Sunday to be used as further ammunition as to why people don’t go to church without them knowing at this same church we gave 5000 pairs of new back to school shoes to kids of #Atlanta, or that we spearheaded 9 million campaign to support @bennett_college , or that we bailed out nonviolent offenders or that we partnered with @delta to send 4 cargo to #Bahamas for hurricane release or that we’ve partnered with @_hamptonu to place 95 displaced students or that we fed the furloughed workers for two weeks while the government was shut down or that we went into housing projects to feed kids of #dekalb county during spring break. For none of these projects were you solicited for a donation."

Beyonce claims her daughter Blue Ivy is a "cultural icon" in her legal battle with a wedding planner over trademarking Blue Ivy's name.

It all started after a surrogate allegedly delivered Blue Ivy in a New York hospital 7 years ago. Beyonce, 39, and her husband, rapper Jay-Z, 50, filed paperwork to trademark the newborn's name, Blue Ivy Carter, for the purpose of selling merchandise (dolls, clothing, etc.) bearing the girl's name.

Alberto E. Rodriguez/Getty Images

But wedding planner Wendy Morales already laid claim to the "Blue Ivy" name before the more famous Blue Ivy was even born.

After negotiations to the rights for the name fell through, Beyonce filed a trademark infringement lawsuit against Morales.

The case took a nasty turn when Morales accused Beyonce of fraud, but the river boat singer has since hit back, arguing that the trademark is legit because consumers are more likely to associate the name with her daughter.

Best Image / BACKGRID

Besides that, Beyonce claims Blue Ivy is a "cultural icon" whose fashion sense and style are celebrated all over the world, and that consumers are likely to be confused if they see her name on a boutique wedding event planning business.

Beyonce's legal team claims the trademark that the superstar couple filed for is "Blue Ivy Carter" and not just "Blue Ivy."

Beyonce claims Morales runs a "small business, with just three regional offices and a handful of employees", with weak online presence.

Kevin Mazur/WireImage

On the other hand:

"Blue Ivy Carter is a cultural icon who has been described as a 'mini style star' and has been celebrated for her 'fashion moments' over the years. Her life and activities are followed extensively by the media and the public," the Carters state in documents obtained by The Blast.

"Most significantly, Blue Ivy Carter has achieved a significant amount of fame, particularly at such a young age. She also has a noted and well-chronicled interest in fashion. Given these factors, Blue Ivy Carter is capable of and interested in becoming the face of a brand. For this reason, the factual context demonstrates that BGK filed the Application with the intent to build a brand around Blue Ivy Carter and her public reputation and renown."

Both parties are headed for trial over the trademark issue.

Nicole Murphy apologized profusely for kissing a married man in full view of the paparazzi. Murphy 51, and director Antoine Fuqua, 53, just happened to be staying in the same tourist spot while attending a film festival in Italy in July.

Murphy laid low for 2 months after she was dragged for filth on social media when the photos surfaced.

Murphy appeared on The Wendy Williams Show on Tuesday, where she again expressed her remorse over kissing Fuqua in a public space.

"It was a frozen-in-time thing," Murphy told Wendy Williams. "Trust me, I wish it didn't happen. It was a moment where I should've thought more through the situation. Make better judgments. It's something I apologized for."

Murphy denied releasing a statement when the paparazzi photos went viral online.

The statement claimed she and Fuqua, who's married to actress Lela Rochon, were simply family friends.

"I did not put out that statement," Murphy said sincerely. "I did not release that statement, Wendy."

Murphy, who shares five adult children with ex-husband Eddie Murphy, had previously apologized to Rochon in a statement to TMZ.

"It was a moment that should not have happened. I regret it," said Nicole, fighting back tears. "I apologized for it. I'm a human being, it was a mistake."

Williams, 55, is no stranger to infidelity. The talk show Diva's life was turned upside down when her husband, Kevin Hunter, welcomed a baby girl with his longtime lover, Sharina Hudson.

Williams listed her New Jersey mansion and moved into a luxury high rise in Manhattan.

Before she became America's most well-known socialite, Kim Kardashian appeared as an unknown extra in a Tupac Shakur music video back in the day.

In a podcast interview, Kardashian, 38, said she appeared as an extra in a Tupac video when she was only 16 years old and virtually unknown.

She said she never met Tupac, who wasn't on the set when she was shooting her scenes.

"No, he wasn't there, I've never seen the footage," she said "We were walking down the runway, like we were models walking down a runway. It wasn't like we were in bikinis by the pool or anything like that. We were literally walking down a runway, and it was Kim Stewart, Kourtney, me and maybe like one or two other of our friends."

Tekashi69 must pay to remove his face tattoos to enter the government's witness protection program, because the government won't pay to remove his distinctive face tattoos.

The 23-year-old rapper turned government witness to shave decades off his prison sentence if he is convicted of racketeering, attempted murder, and firearm charges.

Tekashi, real name Daniel Hernandez, faces up to 32 years in prison.

According to the NY Times, the witness protection program is one of Tekashi's options if he is released early from prison.

The government has successfully relocated reformed criminals and mobsters who turned government witness. One mobster is now a doll salesman in a suburban town.

But the rapper's distinctive rainbow colored hair and tattoos would make it difficult for him to blend into suburbia.

"Despite how connected we are, and the appetite for social media content in this country, there are places where, if this kid gets a haircut and wears normal clothes, no one would know or care who he is," said Jay Kramer, a former F.B.I. official.

The U.S. Marshals Service, which runs the witness protection program, won't pay for the removal of Mr. Hernandez's signature face tattoos if he is accepted into the program.

Once in the program, Tekashi can't have contact with his family, friends or associates.

Kevin Hart is off the hook for $60 million after a judge dismissed a lawsuit filed by the woman in Hart's hotel room sex tape extortion scandal.

Montia Sabbag sued Hart for emotional distress and invasion of privacy. She claimed he conspired with a friend to conceal a video camera in the hotel room for free publicity.

Sabbag also sued Hart's friend, Jonathan Jackson, and gossip blogger Fameolous.

But RadarOnline.com reports exclusively that a judge dismissed the complaint for "lack of subject matter jurisdiction" and for "lack of diversity jurisdiction."

Sabbag claimed Hart and Jackson set her up by installing cameras "without her knowledge or consent, while she was engaged in private, consensual sexual relations" with the 40-year-old comedian.

But the judge found that the lawsuit did not properly identify Fameolous as a LLC (limited liability company), and therefore the court does not have jurisdiction.

"Because the Complaint alleges the citizenship of Defendant Fameolous, Ent LLC as if it were a corporation, rather than a limited liability company, the Complaint has not properly alleged the citizenship of that party," the court papers read, according to Radar. "As a result, Plaintiff's allegations are not sufficient to invoke this Court's diversity jurisdiction."

Sabbag has until September 30, 2019 to file a First Amended Complaint with Federal Court to show that the lawsuit meets the requirements for subject matter or diversity jurisdiction.

Hart is still recovering at home after undergoing surgery to repair serious back injuries he suffered in a car crash on Sept. 1. He also spent a week in a rehab facility.

Reality TV stars Jim Jones and Chrissy Lampkin lived a fabulous lifestyle on their mortgage bank's dime. Their New Jersey mansion was recently auctioned off after they stopped paying their mortgage 9 years ago!

According to gossip blog Bossip.com, Jones and Lampkin, 48, last paid their mortgage in 2010. The $680,000 home was recently auctioned off for just $100 in foreclosure.

The U.S. National Bank Association sued the couple back in 2017 for defaulting on their mortgage loan. Jones purchased the house in 2006 with a $680,000 mortgage loan at 6.875% interest.

The 43-year-old rapper agreed to make payments of $4,467 each month, but he soon stopped paying the mortgage. He hasn't made a mortgage payment in nearly a decade.

According to his mortgage agreement Jones would be liable for the entire loan if he went into default.

The couple eventually agreed to a settlement to avoid foreclosure. But they never met the terms of the settlement and the house went into foreclosure.

Two people injured in Kevin Hart's vintage car the night it crashed have lawyered up and plan to sue the comedian and the body shop that customized his muscle car.

Hart was a passenger in his 1970 Plymouth Barracuda driven by his friend Jared Black who lost control of the vehicle and veered off the road just after midnight on Sept. 1.

Both Hart and Black suffered serious back injuries in the crash, but Black's fiancee and Hart's personal trainer Rebecca Broxterman, who was sitting in the back seat, was not seriously hurt.

According to TMZ, Black and Broxterman have lawyered up and plan to sue Hart and the body shop that modified his car.

Broxterman and Black say Hart is negligent for failing to install standard safety features in the 720 horsepower car.

Hart reportedly didn't want safety features such as air bags because he wanted to maintain the car's 1970 authenticity. Airbags weren't standard equipment in all cars until the 1990s.

Broxterman and Black also plan to sue the bodyshop for going ahead with the job despite the car having no safety features.

Hart returned home after spending a week at a rehab facility. He underwent surgery to fuse his spine. He will receive physical therapy at home.

Rapper Dave East is facing battery charges after a groupie accused him of attacking her during a wild threesome in his Las Vegas hotel room.

The 31-year-old Gemini was cited for battery on a woman after he invited 2 groupies back to his hotel room for a private after party.

The steamy sex session started out normally, but things went left quickly when the woman got upset that the "Hate Me Now" rapper showed the other groupie more love.

The groupie "flipped out" and threw champagne bottles and a soap dish from across the room. 2 of the bottles hit their target, leaving cuts on East's arm and leg, which police noted in their report.

The woman claimed she and East got into an argument and he threw 5 or 6 punches at her, hitting her once on the arm.

She said she fled to the bathroom, where she called 911.

But Dave's attorney, Stacey Richman, released a statement to Sandrarose.com, alleging that the groupie stole Dave's cell phones when she fled the room:

"The woman threw a soap dispenser and bottles of champagne at Dave. One of the bottles shattered on the wall, sending glass flying and cutting Dave. Another bottle hit Dave with force in the head. The woman sought to continue her assault. Dave did not respond with violence. Instead Dave was concerned for everyone's safety. Dave justifiably took the woman by the arm and put her out of the room. Dave did not assault anyone. He was ordered by his doctor to get CAT scan after the incident. We are waiting on the results. It was later learned that the woman had secreted Dave's phones in her handbag. – Stacey Richman

Kenya Moore and Marc Daly are back on the market. The reality TV couple is heading to divorce court after Kenya found out about his secret family!

People.com reports Kenya filed divorce papers "Due to recent and ongoing circumstances."

Kenya, 48, and Marc, 49, tied the knot in a bucolic setting on St. Lucia Beach in June 2017.

Their separation comes less than a year after she gave birth to their first child, daughter Brooklyn Doris Daly, on Nov. 4, 2018.

Gossip blogger B. Scott reports exclusively that the Real Housewives of Atlanta star found out her husband was keeping a secret from her: he had a secret ex-wife and at least 2 other children that he forgot to tell her about! (Don't you hate when that happens?)

Scott says Marc's ex-wife divorced him after a year of marriage.

Despite the unfortunate circumstances of their marriage, Kenya and Marc were together at a cast taping on Thursday. They seemed fine, but Kenya obviously had a lot on her mind.

In an exclusive statement to PEOPLE, Kenya asked for privacy while she embarks on single motherhood without a man to help raise her daughter in the same household.

"It is with profound sadness that I regret to inform my fans that I am divorcing my husband Marc Daly. Due to recent and ongoing circumstances, I can no longer continue in the marriage. My sole concern and focus is and will always be my daughter, Brooklyn, my miracle baby. She was made in love and true commitment. I ask for our privacy to be respected moving forward."

But Marc gave his own statement to PEOPLE, saying it was HIS decision to dump Kenya.

"I have come to the difficult decision to separate from Kenya at this time. Our daughter has two parents that love her very much and in her best interests, this situation should remain as private as possible. I cherish our family's good times together and will continue to co-parent in a loving way. Rumors, innuendo or false accusations only serve to hurt our family and will be addressed through counsel as the law permits. Please respect our privacy during this challenging period."

The former couple appeared together on Tamron Hall's new talk show, where Kenya discussed injecting herself with fertility drugs to conceive her daughter via in vitro fertilization (IVF).

Beyonce's team is very unhappy that the burlesque dancer's Homecoming documentary was shut out of the Emmy Awards after earning 6 Emmy nominations.

Beyonce failed to take home a single trophy at the Creative Arts Emmys over the weekend.

Her rabid fanbase, who call themselves "the BeyHive," took to social media to vent their frustration over their idol's Emmy shut out.

It was their typical immature public meltdown whenever they don't get their way. But the behavior of Beyonce's own management team and publicist really raised eyebrows.

Beyonce's longtime publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure posted an Instagram video that shows her, Bey's manager Steve Pamon and other staffers flipping the bird to the Emmy Creative Arts organizers.

Many say Beyonce's team showed a lack of class, and they should know better than to antagonize Hollywood bigwigs who all know each other.

Fantasia says more women are single these days because too many women want to be leaders rather than walk alongside their men.

The 35-year-old American Idol winner discussed gender roles in an interview with the Breakfast Club on Monday, Sept. 16.

"We need more men to stand up and lead the way," she said. "Most women are trying to be the leader, that's why you can't find a man. You can't be the king in the house. Fall back and be the queen and let your man lead the way."

The mom-of-2, who is happily married to Kendall Taylor, continued:

"I feel like it's a generational thing, and we can talk and we can go real deep on that, I don't need to start that. But it's a generational curse in how society has placed our men, and women have to stand up and be the mother and the father and the provider. So now, you're so bad you can’t be told nothing that when the right man comes, you lose him because you're trying to be the man."

She said team work is the key to a happy marriage and that women should "learn to submit" and let men be natural born leaders.

"At the end of the day I'm the neck, my man's the head. So he can't make any moves without his wife. It all works together. But you can't be the head of the house. You got to let the man be the head of the house. But it's a generational thing and it's what we've been taught. Stand up, be strong… And a dude comes and everything about you is a man.

"You have to learn how to submit. You can still be a queen. A king needs his queen. It's certain things that he can't see that we see. Anybody play chess? We work together. But the queen has to sit back and allow the king to be the king."

Lizzo apologized to a Postmates driver for accusing her of stealing her dinner during a tirade on Twitter.com. But her apology may not be enough.

The 31-year-old starving artist called out the driver for stealing her food on Monday. In a since-deleted tweet, Lizzo wrote: "Hey @Postmates this girl Tiffany W. stole my food. she lucky I don't fight no more."

The morbidly obese rapper also tweeted Tiffany's photo, causing some of her 975K Twitter followers to rebuke her for putting the driver's life in danger.

"Jesus. This poor girl is going to get fired and then hunted down. Come on, Lizzo," tweeted one user.

Another Twitter user tweeted: "So you've publicly shamed someone who works in the service industry… you’ve nearly a million twitter followers… and you've now DMd their employer who will likely sack the individual you shamed publicly after accusing her of theft when you don’t actually know what happened."

Joseph Okpako/Redferns

Lizzo's followers were supportive after she went hungry, but many believe she went too far by posting the driver's name and photo on Twitter.

According to sources the driver plans to file a lawsuit against the "Juice" singer.

When contacted by MSN for comment, a Postmates spokesperson wrote: "As soon as Lizzo reached out, we looked into the matter and quickly resolved the issue. We apologize to Lizzo for any inconvenience."

A source told Page Six that the delivery person waited the allotted five minutes at the drop-off location but wasn't able to reach the "Juice" singer, so she left.

Following the backlash, the 31-year-old rapper issued an apology to her followers:

"I apologize for putting that girl on blast. I understand I have a large following and that there were so many variables that could've put her in danger. Imma really be more responsible with my use of social media and check my petty and my pride at the door."

Rapper Dave East is facing battery charges after he allegedly attacked a woman during a threesome in his Las Vegas hotel room.

The 31-year-old Gemini was cited for battery on a woman after he invited 2 groupies back to his hotel room for a private after party.

According to TMZ, one of the women was upset that the "Hate Me Now" rapper showed the other groupie more attention during the intimate encounter.

The groupie "flipped out" and threw champagne bottles from across the room. 2 of the bottles hit their target, leaving cuts on East's arm and leg, which police noted in their report.

The woman's version of the story was different. She told cops that during the steamy sexual encounter, she and East got into an argument and he threw 5 or 6 punches at her, hitting her once on the arm.

She said she fled to the bathroom, where she called 911.

Other witnesses, including a man and woman, said they entered the bedroom after the ruckus began.

A female witness stated the woman was the aggressor in the altercation, while East's buddy only recalled seeing the woman hurling bottles.

Both parties were cited for misdemeanor battery, but nobody was arrested. Dave and the woman were treated at separate hospitals, according to TMZ.

Question: Ladies, would you go back to a hotel room with a rapper? Which rapper?
 

Update: Dave East's camp reached out to Sandrarose.com with more information about the altercation between East and a woman:

"In your piece, can you please update to include the statement from Dave's attorney, Stacey Richman, who says the woman threw a soap dispenser at Dave -- but says the rapper didn't respond with violence, and instead was concerned for everyone's safety. Richman claims Dave justifiably took her by the arm and put her out of the room.

Richman denies Dave assaulted anyone and says he got a CAT scan after the alleged incident ... doctor's orders. They are waiting on the results."

If you thought former drug kingpin Alpo was in the witness protection program after snitching on fellow drug lords, you thought wrong.

Actor Faizon Love (right) posted a photo of himself posing with the notorious Harlem drug dealer-turned-federal witness Alberto "Alpo" Martinez.

In the photo caption Faizon hinted at an upcoming project with Alpo: "Y'all not ready for Alpo and Faizon ...oh sh*t."

Faizon later deleted the post after receiving backlash for posing with the man whose testimony sent lower level drug workers to prison.

Alpo was released from prison after serving a portion of his 35-year prison sentence.

He was once considered a hero to Harlem residents who looked to him for Thanksgiving turkey giveaways and for protection from rival drug dealers.

But Alpo's admirers turned on him after he murdered drug rival Rich Porter in 1990. Porter was reportedly a blood relative of the late socialite Kim Porter.

According to VladTV, Alpo spared himself from serving a life sentence by testifying against his alleged D.C. enforcer Wayne "Silk" Perry in open court. Perry received five consecutive life sentences without the possibility of parole.

According to Vice, Alpo was released from prison in a little-known federal prison witness protection program called "cheese factories" in 2015.

Lizzo wants delivery drivers to know she will fight for her grilled sandwiches, pizza and super size drink. The morbidly obese singer/rapper took to Twitter.com to roast a Postmates driver for allegedly stealing her food.

The "Truth Hurts" singer called out the driver on Monday, tweeting: "Hey @Postmates this girl Tiffany W. stole my food. she lucky I don't fight no more."

Postmates responded quickly, apologizing to the 31-year-old star. Some Twitter users sided with Lizzo, but others criticized her for "snitching" on a minimum wage food service worker.

"Jesus. This poor girl is going to get fired and then hunted down. Come on, Lizzo," tweeted one user.

Another user tweeted: "So you've publicly shamed someone who works in the service industry… you’ve nearly a million twitter followers… and you've now DMd their employer who will likely sack the individual you shamed publicly after accusing her of theft when you don’t actually know what happened."

Lizzo didn't share any details of the food theft.

An inside source told Page Six that the delivery person waited for five minutes and wasn’t able to reach the "Juice" singer, so she left.

The hungry star later apologized for her hasty rebuke of the driver on a public forum.

"I apologize for putting that girl on blast. I understand I have a large following and that there were so many variables that could've put her in danger. Imma really be more responsible with my use of social media and check my petty and my pride at the door."

ABC

Beyonce shared private moments at home with her children, daughter Blue Ivy and 2-year-old twins Sir and Rumi, in a new documentary "Making the Gift" which aired on Monday, Sept. 16 on ABC.

In the documentary, Beyonce took fans behind the scenes as she recorded her album, The Lion King: The Gift, which was not well received by her fans who expected better from the superstar.

The 39-year-old burlesque singer also shared private home videos of her and husband, Jay-Z, interacting with their three children. Jay-Z reportedly has two grown sons from previous relationships.

In the video, Blue Ivy, 7, sang a sweet version of her and mommy's song "Brown Skin Girl," that sent social media into a frenzy.

Question: Did you watch the ABC special? How was it?

BASE Hologram

Whitney Houston's hologram is going out on a 27-date world tour. The tour dates have been announced.

Whitney's hologram, a three-dimensional illumination of her image, is set to perform in a money grab concert tour called "An Evening With Whitney".

Of course the person behind the tour is Pat Houston, Whitney's sister-in-law, who claims the show will be an interactive experience that will allow ticket holders to see Whitney live for the first time since her untimely death in 2012 at age 48.

Houston released a statement responding to the criticism:

"Whitney is not with us, but her music will live with us forever. We know we made the right decision partnering with BASE because they understand how important it is to produce a phenomenal hologram. They also know that engaging her fans with an authentic Whitney experience would resonate worldwide because of the iconic status that she created over three decades. Her fans deserve nothing less because she gave nothing less than her best."

Other hologram tours featuring famous dead people have failed to live up to the hype. Mainly because a hologram cannot be made to look real regardless of how the light is angled. You can literally see through the image, which can be unsettling to some people.

The company producing the tour - BASE Hologram - released a schedule that kicks off in Mexico before touring Europe, where people are less skeptical of gimmicks.

No North American tour has been announced.

Question: Do you plan to purchase a ticket to Whitney's hologram tour?

On Monday Wendy Williams tearfully announced her popular daytime talk show was renewed through 2022. The TV personality, who has had her share of heartbreaks this year, was clearly relieved to finally get the news off her chest.

"I got through the whole show without shedding a tear," she said before making her big announcement.

"The Wendy Show has been renewed through 2022!"

But even though Wendy's show was renewed, Page Six reports the show will definitely be cancelled after the 2022 season.

Page Six claims The Wendy Show's producer Debmar-Mercury "likely" renewed the show because there was nothing else to air in its time slot.

"They don't have anyone strong enough to replace her. They were back into a corner," an inside source told Page Six. "She will surely not be coming back beyond the two-season renewal. This will be her swan song."

Wendy had her share of problems in 2019. She filed for divorce from her cheating husband, Kevin Hunter, after he fathered a baby girl with his longtime mistress, Sharina Hudson.
 

Colin Kaepernick

A Nike ad campaign featuring free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick won an Emmy award for Best Commercial.

The award was handed out at the 2019 Creative Arts Emmy Awards over the weekend.

Nike picked Kaepernick to lead its 30th anniversary 'Just Do It' TV and print campaign that also featured Serena Williams and LeBron James.

Kaepernick courted controversy in 2016 when he remained seated on the bench during the national anthem. After the public backlash, he got off the bench and kneeled on the sideline.

The 30-year-old quarterback said he was protesting social injustice. But some fans noticed he waited until he was benched to become a "woke activist".

"We believe Colin is one of the most inspirational athletes of this generation, who has leveraged the power of sport to help move the world forward," Nike North America vice President Gino Fisanotti told ESPN after the initial backlash.

Kaepernick, who was 3-16 during his final season with the 49ers, filed a grievance against the league for colluding to blackball him -- despite the fact that he turned down at least 2 contract offers.

Kaepernick and the league settled the lawsuit for a reported $10 million.

Remember when Kevin Hart was filmed having intimate relations in a hotel room with a woman who wasn't his wife, and we thought the whole thing was a publicity stunt? We were right.

Hart's dirt is being exposed now that he is laid up in a rehab facility after breaking his back in three places in a serious car crash on Sept. 1.

Montia Sabbag, the woman in Hart's hotel room sex tape, is suing him for $60 million, claiming he and another man installed a camera in a Las Vegas hotel room to boost publicity for his comedy tour.

The lawsuit alleges that Hart and his former friend J.T. Jackson, who was arrested and charged with extortion, set her up for publicity.

Hart himself revealed the extramarital activity by "apologizing" publicly to his wife, Eniko Parrish-Hart, for cheating on her.

"I made a bad error in judgement and I put myself in a bad environment where only bad things can happen and they did," Hart said in a video on his Instagram account.

A few blogs then accused Hart of staging what seemed to be an obvious publicity stunt.

But Sabbag came forward to say Hart, 40, was innocent and he was not aware of the video tape in advance.

She also said she didn't want money from him.

Now she claims Hart and Jackson set her up by installing cameras "without her knowledge or consent, while she was engaged in private, consensual sexual relations" with the comedian.

But Hart's lawyers say she tried to extort him for "six figures" prior to filing her lawsuit.
