Alicia Keys says her four-year-old son Genesis worries he will be bullied for wearing rainbow fingernail polish.

It all started in August when Alicia, 38, posted Instagram images of her son wearing fingernail polish. She captioned the images "Family time is the BEST time".

But her followers were drawn to the little boy's painted fingernails. "Bye with this foolishness," wrote one disgusted follower.

"This is only my opinion no disrespect. This should have been a teaching moment. I believe each generation has demons to fight but l am from the era [I] don't recall one man or young boy l know wanting to wear nail polish, lipstick, dresses ect. This has ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with RELIGIOUS BELIEFS. I know times has changed but we must become cognizant of the fact our children and some adults emulate what we see".

Another user wrote:

"Whatever happened to tonka trucks and baseball bats etc for a 4yr old. Dear Parents it's time to do better. We are who God created boy, girl, man and woman and we can't change that and it's definitely not up for debate. As for the kids making fun of him, well what else do you expect from a kid when even they know it's not normal. It's really sad that this generation if children will miss out on the joy of JUST BEING A KID in this world of acceptance".

On Tuesday, Alicia expressed her frustration in a video posted on Instagram along with the caption, "Less Labels, More Expressions. Been thinking about how over labeled and over judged we all are... can u feel me??".

She said she took her son to the nail salon and he was excited to have his nails painted in rainbow colors, but he hesitated because he was concerned about the public reaction.

"Four years old. He's four and he already understands the concept that someone's gonna judge him because he chose rainbow color on his nails," Alicia told her followers.

She told the boy to stick with his decision to paint his nails in the rainbow colors.

"You chose it, you like it, you do it," she said before telling him that a lot of men painted their nails too. "It's not like some strange thing that you only do," she added.

"That made him feel better," she said.

"But it just got me to thinking how completely judged we are all the time. The way I see it, there is masculine and feminine energies inside of us all and that's period. That's how it is. And it gets concerning to me that we can't just explore these different sides of ourselves."

Alicia then opened up about her own inner struggles to suppress her masculine side.

"Even for me myself, I oftentimes express the masculine energy that's inside of me. And it's very natural to me. That's how I feel. We should be able to explore and express them however we want to."

Needless to say, her followers went IN.

One follower wrote:

"Why would you take your son to go get his nails done at 4? He should have been with his father @aliciakeys so if your husband comes back home with a lace front wig nails and hair done and now sleeps with men is he expressing himself and his feminine energy ... things to think about".

Rapper Tip "T.I." Harris says he goes with his teenage daughter, Deyjah, to her doctor's appointments to make sure her hymen is still intact.

The 39-year-old rapper is a doting father to his children, including daughters Heiress, 3, and 18-year-old Deyjah Harris, who is increasingly popular on Instagram.

During a recent "Ladies Like Us" podcast, the proud father said he had "the talk" with Deyjah about the birds and the bees and he happily confirmed she is still a virgin.

"Not only have we had the conversation, we have yearly trips to the gynecologist to check her hymen," he said in all seriousness. "Yes I go with her. I go with her. So let me tell you, this one time we go, I think this might have been after her 16th birthday… and this is what we do. Right after the birthday we celebrate, usually like the day after the party, she's enjoying her gifts, I put a sticky note on the door 'Gyno tomorrow 9:30,'" he added.

The rapper described a typical gynecologist visit with his daughter.

"So we'll go and sit down and the doctor will come and talk. And the doctor is maintaining a high level of professionalism. 'Well you know sir, in order to share information…' I say 'Deyjah they want you to sign this so we can share information. Is there anything you wouldn't want me to know? Okay. See doc, ain't no problem.'"

T.I. said the doctor informed him of the various other ways a girl's hymen can be broken, such as using feminine products, playing sports, bike riding and horse riding.

"So I say look Doc, she don't ride no horses, she don't ride no bike, she don't play no sports man. Just check the hymen please and give me back my results expeditiously! But I will say as of her 18th birthday her hymen is still intact."

Even though he confirmed his daughter is intact, the promiscuous rap mogul says virgins are overrated.

"No fun. Who wants a virgin? Like, really. All that work?"

Comedian Lil Rel Howery is fighting for sole custody of his 2-year-old son. The Get Out star is taking his ex-girlfriend, LeChez Davis, to court, and asking a judge to grant him full custody of their toddler amid allegations that she is leading a double life.

Lil Rel, real name Milton Howery, Jr., hooked up with Davis not long after divorcing his first wife, Verina Robinson, in 2017. Howery and Robinson share two children: daughter Brittni and son Judah.

In legal papers obtained by TMZ, the 39-year-old Sagittarius accuses Davis of lying to him about her marital status by stating she was divorced. She wasn't divorced; she was still married to her husband, while also telling Howery that he was the father of her child, who was given Howery's last name.

Howery claims Davis told her husband the same lie, and put his last name on the baby's birth certificate.

The comedian voluntarily provided Davis with child support and frequently flew her and the boy out to Los Angeles to spend time together.

He realized something wasn't right when he posted a photo of himself and the toddler online, referring to the child as his son.

He was then contacted by an associate of Davis', who insisted her husband was the baby's daddy.

Howery took a paternity test in October, and the DNA results proved he was the boy's biological father.

Now he wants Davis stripped of her custody rights for allegedly using their child as a pawn in a "nefarious scheme replete with concealment, misrepresentations and deception in an attempt to defraud".

In addition to seeking full custody, Howery wants to be granted legal authority to make all parental decisions for the toddler, while also moving him out to Los Angeles.

A ruling has yet to be made on the custody.

Meanwhile, Howery is happily self-partnered, and he has no plans to date any women in the foreseeable future.

Janet Jackson heaped praise on Ciara's "too cute" children for dressing as her and big brother Randy Jackson for Halloween.

Ciara shared a snap of 5-year-old son Future Zahir Wilburn and 2-year-old daughter Sienna Princess as they rocked out in matching pink costumes on her Instagram page.

Ciara, 34, captioned the shot "The Jacksons", and the picture quickly caught the attention of Janet, 53, who commented with a sweet and simple: "Too cute," WENN.com reports.

While many fans assumed Future was dressed as Janet's late brother Michael, others were quick to point out that he was actually dressed as Randy, now 57.

Janet and her brother Randy were the youngest members of the musical Jackson family from Gary, Indiana. The two siblings joined their famous brothers - Michael, Marlon, Jermaine, Tito and Jackie - when they performed on the road during summer breaks.

Janet and Randy were popular for their grown up skits during the Jacksons' dinner & show tours. Little Janet brought the house down when she delivered Mae West's famous line to Randy: "Why don't you come up and see me sometime?"

Randy became an official member of the Jacksons in 1976 when he replaced older brother Jermaine, who left the group to pursue a solo career with Motown after contract negotiations fell through. Motown kept the "Jackson 5" name.

 

Future and Sienna's costumes were created by designer Michael Costello, who told E! News that Ciara was "very hands on" during the process of designing the outfits. Future's tuxedo and Sienna's dress both took between three to four days to complete, and cost between $1,200 and $1,400 apiece.

"I think the costumes are just super special because they're fun, they're youthful, they're a timeless classic," he explained. "I like that Ciara wanted to do something vintage-inspired and super adorable. I love the thought and creative process behind it. It's just fun! And it's refreshing because I'm kind of sick and tired of seeing superheroes and zombies everywhere."

After decades of chasing skirts, rapper Too Short has settled down and become a father for the first time at the age of 53. It's hard to believe the horn dog rapper, who had a plethora of groupies with children over the years, never fathered a child of his own.

Sources close to the "I'm a Player" rapper tell TMZ.com that his girlfriend, Sue Ivey, gave birth to a daughter, Yanni in December, but he kept the news under wraps until now.

Fans will get to see plenty of baby Yanni in the future, as TMZ reports that Too Short has been shooting a documentary with Ray J and his manager, David Weintraub, for over a year now.

The documentary focuses on how the rapper, Ray J and Weintraub raise their little girls in Hollywood.

Too Short is pictured at a birthday party for Weintraub's little girl, Stevie, who turned 2 last year.

The Instagram model who allegedly gave birth to rapper Future's 7th baby is putting him on blast for failing to step up and provide for their son.

Last month two of the promiscuous rapper's baby mamas confirmed the birth of his 7th child.

According to Rhymeswithsnitch, Cyndi, who goes by the username @xocindyrenae on Instagram.com, is accusing Future of ignoring their son. Cindy says Future hasn't claimed her son or provided financial support for the infant.

During an Ask Me Anything session on Instagram the alleged latest baby mama confirmed Future was not taking care of their son.

Last month, Future's attorney rushed to court in Florida to silence his 6th baby mama who filed a paternity case against him in Broward County.

The rapper's lawyer pleaded with a judge to slap a gag order on Eliza Reign Seraphin, who recently gave birth to his 7th child, a girl named Reign Wilburn.

Eliza is asking for retroactive and current child support for her precious daughter. She has been very vocal on Instagram about Future's alleged failure to support his youngest child.

Eliza filed the paternity case as "indigent", saying she can't afford to hire a lawyer.

The 35-year-old Atlanta native has six children with as many baby mamas.

Future's 6 children include a 5-year-old son named Future Zahir with part-time singer Ciara; a daughter named Londyn with India J, a son named Prince with Brittni Mealy, a 1-year-old son named Hendrix with Bow Wow's ex Joie Chavis, and a stepson.

Felon bae Apollo Nida is accusing his ex-wife Phaedra Parks of keeping him away from their two sons, 9-year-old Ayden and 6-year-old Dylan. Apollo, who was recently freed from prison, wants to reunite with his sons when he's released from a Philadelphia halfway house later this year. But he claims Phaedra is putting legal obstacles between him and his sons.
