Larsa Pippen is eager to unload her Fort Lauderdale mansion for $12 million. She's so eager that she's throwing in her collection of luxury automobiles valued at $1.5 million.

The 46-year-old former "Real Housewives of Miami" cast member originally purchased the double lot with her ex-husband, NBA star Scottie Pippen, for $1.3 million in 2000 and completed the home in 2004. They divorced in 2016 after 19 years of marriage and 4 children together.

Larsa got the house in the divorce settlement. She listed the home on the market for $11.8 million in 2014.

When the home failed to attract interest, she threw in her collection of cars -- all 2020 models -- including a Porsche 911 GTU RS, a Mercedes G63 AMG SUV and a Ferrari 488 Pista, according to Page Six.

Nowadays, Larsa luxuriates in her jacuzzi with 24-year-old Minnesota Timberwolves star Malik Beasley.

Larsa has been criticized online by Malik's ex, Montana Yao (pictured below), who claims Malik hasn't seen their son, Makai, because Larsa isn't part of the Timberwolves' "COVID bubble," according to reports.

Larsa insists she didn't start dating Malik until after he and Yao had separated. But Montana claims that's a lie.

On Feb. 9, Larsa defended Malik after he was sentenced to 120 days in jail for threatening violence for pointing a loaded firearm at a family that pulled into his rental driveway by accident.

Kirk Franklin says anti-LGBT+ bullying has no place in the church. Particularly since 80% of male church choir members are same-sex oriented.

Franklin spoke up about homophobia in the church during a recent interview on a Sirius XM radio show.

The Grammy Award-winning gospel singer, best known for his crossover hit song "Stomp," told host Clay Cane, "What is very important to understand is that the pulpit is not a bullying place, and we have to also understand that no group of people are monolithic. No Black person, all Black people do not think the same, do not process the same. Not all LGBTQIA+ people all think and process the same."

The 51-year-old married father of 4 battled le ghey rumors for most of his career. He encouraged church members not to "weaponize" the Holy Bible against LGBT+ people.

"I have some close gay friends who make decisions based on their interpretation of the Bible, and they live out their lives based on whether celibacy, or whatever they choose to do, and they should have the right to do that."

He continued:

"We have to not weaponize the Bible to cover up, a lot of times, our homophobic views that have nothing to do with the Bible. A lot of people that maybe profess Christianity, they have views that are not even bibliocentric. It's their personal views that they do not understand, sometimes maybe the biology of homosexuality, and so they want to find a scripture to try to justify their own homophobic views... you can't abuse people from a platform, because that ain’t love, that's not the gospel, to take a microphone and weaponize it to hurt people and to condemn people."

Halle Berry and musician Van Hunt have parted ways after dating less than a year. The Oscar winner announced she is done with men.

The title of the post is "Spending Valentine's Day Solo." The subtitle reads: "We're never alone when we're connecting with ourselves."

Halle urged her readers to love themselves and avoid the pressure of being in a relationship on Valentine's Day.

As Michael Reid, also known as the poet JustMike, said, "You're single because you know your worth and won't take anything less than what you deserve."

Make Valentine's Day the day you put yourself and your needs first. Self-love is one of the most powerful tools we have. It isn’t just a simple state of mind when you’re feeling good, but rather a feeling of appreciation for yourself that grows over time. While self-care is one aspect of self-love, it also stems from living intentionally, protecting your energy, and setting boundaries, both in your platonic and romantic relationships.

Last week, Halle, who has been divorced three times, responded to Instagram users who insisted she can't keep a man.

When an Instagram user suggested she "had some trouble with men", she fired back: "Nope, they had trouble with me".

Tessica Brown regrets sharing her hair-raising Gorilla Glue story on social media.

Brown became a minor celebrity overnight -- racking up 700,000 followers on Instagram -- after she shared her story about spraying Gorilla Glue in her hair.

Tessica said she took her story online to seek help and not for clout, cash and glory -- as many have suggested.

She tells Entertainment Tonight that she's "over it".

"The reason I went to the internet because I was never going to take this to social media [but] the reason I took it to social media was because I didn't know what else to do," she explained. "I knew somebody out there, somebody, could have told me something. I didn't think for one second it was going to be everywhere."

When asked how she's dealing with public scrutiny that she made up the story about spraying glue in her hair, Brown denied it was a publicity stunt.

"Again, it never was -- who in they right mind would have just said, 'Oh, let me just spray this on my head and I'm going to become famous overnight?' Never. Who would want that?"

Asked if she regretted it, Brown replied, "Definitely. I told my son today, I wish I could just, I mean, go back. Because I'm over it."

Brown denied a TMZ report that she'd hired an attorney to pursue a lawsuit against the maker of Gorilla Glue.

"No, I've never ever said that," she said. "Again, I don't know where all of this is coming from. Because, at this point, everybody is saying it."

Lauren London shut down Internet gossip suggesting she is pregnant with her third child.

The 36-year-old model and actress insisted she is still trying to cope with the 2019 death of her fiancé Nipsey Hussle.

The actress, who shared four-year-old son Kross with Nipsey, took to Twitter on Wednesday to dismiss the lies.

"Woke up to some straight bulls**t," she tweeted. "Rumors ! Lies ! On a woman trying her best to heal?! Please stop. I'm NOT pregnant [sic]."

London was devastated in March, 2019 when Nipsey, real name Ermias Asghedom, was fatally shot outside his clothing store in Los Angeles. He was 33.

In the months following the tragedy, Lauren made it clear she wasn't interested in shacking up with any man anytime soon, because she had two boys to raise.

Lauren inked a series of tattoo tributes to her late fiancé.

After she was romantically linked to rap mogul Sean 'Diddy' Combs last year, Lauren silenced the rumors by posting a photo of Nipsey on social media and declaring herself "still his".

She added, "King Ermias! Never Forget!"

In addition to son Kross, she also has an 11-year-old son named Cameron with Lil Wayne.

The model girlfriend of Bayern Munich soccer star Jerome Boateng was found dead in her Berlin, Germany apartment, officials say.

Police are investigating Kasia Lenhardt's death as suspicion of suicide.

A police spokesman said: "Yesterday at around 8.30 pm there was a police operation in Charlottenburg on suspicion of suicide. A lifeless person was found in the home. There are no indications of third-party involvement."
 

Kasia, who had Jerome's name tattooed on her torso, died a week after a nasty public split from the soccer superstar. The couple dated for 15 months before they broke up, according to The Sun newspaper.

Jerome parted ways with the 25-year-old model after she wrecked his car in January, resulting in the car being written off as a total loss.

Her blood alcohol level was above the legal limit.

In a statement after the breakup, Jerome stated Kasia "destroyed" his relationship with his ex-girlfriend Rebecca Silvera, the mother of his children.

He said it was time to "draw a line" and "apologize to everyone I've hurt" including Rebecca and their children.

"Kasia became my girlfriend by destroying the relationship with my ex-girlfriend Rebecca and my family and blackmailed me," he wrote.

But Kasia took to social media to say she dumped him because of the World Cup winner's "lies and constant infidelity".

"Now is where you draw the line. Enough," she wrote in a cryptic post on Instagram. She also referred to the pro athlete as "the devil" and promised to "speak up" and "fight back".
 

Calling Kasia's messages "manipulative", Rebecca told RTL news outlet: "Kasia destroyed my family for her own benefit. I'm not going to let her destroy Jerome too. I'm not going to let her play the victim. She's done enough damage."

The model leaves behind a son, Noah, from a previous relationship. Kasia is best known as a contestant on "Germany's Next Top Model" in 2012.

Suicide is the second leading cause of death among young people.

"I'm tired of people coming for me. It's going to be a day when I explode and I really don't want to go back to my old self."

Rapper Offset is being sued by a luxury car dealership for reportedly losing one of their Bentley automobiles.

Platinum Transportation Group in Los Angeles gave the Migos rapper every opportunity to return a Bentley he rented in 2020. But, so far, Offset has failed to deliver the vehicle.

The exotic car dealership filed a lawsuit against Offset, according to documents obtained by TMZ.

PTG executives claim they rented a 2020 Bentley Bentayga to Offset for a couple days. The rapper asked for an extension of his contract and the terms were extended until late July.

But, after his lease was up on July 25th, Offset stopped making the rental payments.

PTG contacted him, and they were surprised to learn that he no longer had the car in his possession.

The dealership filed a police report declaring the luxury vehicle stolen.

It's not every day that a rapper losses a Bentley. So far, no charges have been filed.

NeNe Leakes denies being an unemployed reality TV star without a team.

The former "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star denied a report by blogger Love B Scott that she was dumped by her entire team because she was exceedingly difficult to work with.

"For all of you that are asking, emailing, in boxing, blogging, reporting etc. The ONLY statement i have... My team DID NOT let me go! No further statements at this time," she tweeted on Tuesday.

On Monday, Scott reported that NeNe, 53, was no longer represented by manager Steven Grossman, nor was she repped by ICM talent agency, and she was also dumped by her attorney Darrell Miller.

The report suggested that NeNe was being blacklisted after she took on Bravo Network for firing her last year. She also called Andy Cohen a racist.

On Monday, NeNe referenced both Grossman and Miller in a since-deleted-tweet.

"You can't turn on your teammate and get away with this @stevengrossman #DarrellMiller #Foxrothschild," she wrote. "Suppression, retaliation, discrimination, unequal pay, devaluation against black women is real, it’s painful and it hurts. I will fight for all women rights PS: FIX IT."

Since being booted from RHOA, NeNe accused Bravo of discriminating against black women. She also accused Cohen of being racist. And in December, she urged her followers to boycott the network.

She claimed former co-star Porsha Williams is aware of the unfair treatment of women, but won't speak up because she feared "losing her check."

"I have numerous emails, text messages, RHOA group text, voice recording that go back yearsssss," NeNe tweeted. "I never got rid of anything! Fix your dirty work. Being a racist is so yesterday."
