Earlier this week, Jada Pinkett Smith denied allegations that she manipulated August Alsina into a relationship with her husband Will Smith's blessings.

The 27-year-old "No Love" singer made headlines when he sat down for an interview with New York radio personality Angela Yee about his alleged affair with the 48-year-old star.

"I actually sat down with Will and had a conversation," August said. "Due to the transformation from their marriage to life partnership that they spoke on several times, and not involving romanticism, he gave me his blessing."

August explained the deep emotional bond he'd developed with the older woman who convinced him it was love.

"I totally gave myself to that relationship for years of my life. I truly and really, really deeply loved, and have a ton of love for her. I devoted myself to it, I gave my full self to it. So much so to the point that I can die right now and be OK with knowing that I truly gave myself to somebody. I really loved the person that I experienced that (with) and know what (that feels) like - if some people never get that in this lifetime."

How did August end up in a situation that most men would not find themselves in? August appears to be an emotionally weak man who struggles with self-esteem and a desire to be loved by a narcissistic mother figure.

Jada, a mother-of-two children who practically raised themselves, has admitted to being a narcissist.

Narcissism is a mental disorder characterized by a preoccupation with self. A narcissist puts her own aspirations, needs, success, and personal preferences above others.

It is important for parents to teach their children how to spot a narcissist to avoid falling into their trap. A vulnerable teen or man who is dumped by a narcissist can be left feeling depressed, confused, disoriented, lethargic, or suicidal.

Vulnerable people like August are like fish bait to a narcissist once she gets her hook into them.

Which brings us to the first sign that a woman may be a narcissist.

1. Narcissists are very attractive

Most narcissists are very attractive people. They are physically stunning, beautiful and irresistible. Their beauty makes it easier for people to gravitate towards them.

They are experts at spotting prey in a crowded room. Once they meet, they will know within minutes if your son is emotionally weak and vulnerable. They will prey on his weakness and his strong desire to be loved.

That's why it's important to teach your son the basics - how to spot a narcissist at an early age.

If your son has a healthy, loving, secure upbringing - half of the battle is won. You must constantly tell your minor son how much he is loved - until he gets tired of hearing it. Tell him you love him by your words and actions. Begin early, before he is 7 and has developed a  personality.

2. Narcissists love being the center of attention

Warn your son that a narcissist is usually the most popular woman in the room. She can be a celebrity, an executive, professional athlete, or CEO of her own company. Or she can be the girl next door.

What sets them apart from others is their ability to draw a crowd. Once she gets her hooks into your son she will use him, drain him, and then dispose of him like a piece of trash.

3. Love bombing

Love bombing is the narcissist's most potent weapon. That's how she gets her hooks into your son. It begins within hours after the exchange of phone numbers.

Narcissists are extremely manipulative and dangerous. Once they have a victim on the hook they will do everything to make sure he stays there. Communication technology makes it easier for a predator to hook her prey. She begins by showering him with text messages and/or phone calls.

The texts will be excessive - multiple texts per hour. Sometimes 100 texts per day. The weak-minded, vulnerable man will be flattered by all the attention from a celebrity. But the healthy, secure man will not be impressed with her excess text messages. He will be aware that something is wrong.

Love bombs can also take the form of notes left on the bathroom mirror or a car windshield. Flowers delivered to his job is a favorite tactic of a narcissist. Her goal is to get him to spend more time with her, and less time with others.

While exhilarating at first, love bombing can feel like being stalked. A weak, vulnerable man won't think he is being stalked. The lavish attention will be so intoxicating, he will invite the predator to move in with him because he craves the nonstop attention. Unfortunately, it doesn't last.

"If you're feeling that something just isn't right about the person or your relationship, these constant reminders of "how good you are together" — when you suspect that you really aren't — can be an effort to keep you tethered. It's often the first line used by a potential abuser."

Sometimes there are "love at first sight" stories that end well. The relationship builds quickly, but stays at a healthy pace that is comfortable for both parties involved.

A relationship with a narcissist rarely ends well - unless she's involved with another narcissist or a man who has more wealth and power than she does. Then she will form a "life partnership" with him and use him to lure in her victims.

Stay tuned for part 2 of Teaching your son how to spot a narcissist.

Screen grabs: YouTube

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.

Celebrities reacted to rapper Lil Boosie's bizarre and disrespectful video rant about Dwyane Wade's gender confused child, Zaya Wade, 12. Boosie was heavily criticized for telling Wade not to cut his child's d*ck off.

Zaya's older brother, Zaire Wade, 18, responded to Boosie, saying the rapper had his facts wrong.

Among the celebrities responding to Boosie's toxic rant was Wade's narcissistic wife, Gabrielle Union, 47, who seems to be enjoying all the attention.

Many believe Union pushed the weaker Wade into exploiting his emotionally troubled son for their own selfish benefits.

Union responded to Boosie's rant, saying she covers all of Zaya's haters in the blood of Jesus and will move forward in love and light, or something to that effect.

If you're wondering why Wade won't shut up about his dysfunctional family, it's because he has a documentary coming out on Sunday. The documentary is all about him, of course.

50 Cent faked being overcome by his emotions during the unveiling of his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame last month.

The "In Da Club" rapper, real name Curtis Jackson, received the 2,686th star, and was saluted at the ceremony by his longtime collaborators and mentors, Dr. Dre and Eminem, as well as his girlfriend Jamira Haines (pictured above), and co-stars LaLa Anthony and Joseph Sikora, comedian Michael Blackmon and more.

During the special presentation, 50 stepped up to the podium to thank his guests for their support, and he appeared to fight back tears as he paused and took deep breaths midway through his speech. Fiddy later admitted he faked his emotions to win "cool points" on social media.

The 44-year-old rapper and actor admits he was nervous ahead of the Walk of Fame ceremony, but the big emotional moment, which prompted the crowd to cheer him on, was just for dramatic effect, because he thought it would make him look cool, WENN.com reported.

50 also said he didn't prepare his speech in advance, so pretending to grow emotional helped to buy him time.

He confessed that expressing his emotions doesn't come easily - which is typical of sociopaths such as narcissists.

"I was working on that... to be emotional...," he told ABC's The View. "And when I got there, I knew that when I was really under pressure, that I should just (pause and pretend to take a few breaths)... and I knew that that would give me just a little bit of cool points for getting emotional at that point."

The media mogul said he regrets not being more prepared for his big moment.

He told daytime talk show Strahan, Sara & Keke: "I wasn't really excited about it until everybody was there, until they had Em and Dre... and I was like, 'Yo, I shoulda wrote something down!'"

Meghan Markle is known for being difficult to work with. Soon after she married Prince Harry in London, some of the Royal Family's longtime staffers departed the Palace in droves.

Now comes word that Meghan, 38, is "actively looking for a manager or agent" for "future projects."

A source tells Us Weekly that the former Suits actress is considering returning to Hollywood after giving up her C-list career to marry Harry in 2018.

Meghan, who is currently living with Harry and their son Archie Harrison in Canada, convinced Harry to "step back" from their royal duties to jumpstart her acting career and "work to become financially independent."

"It can be a manager or an agent, but she's reaching out to people to find someone represent her for future professional projects."

But gossipmongers wonder what happened to Meghan's old agent? She reportedly had a team of agents and publicists? Did they all quit?

Though Netflix expressed interest in Meghan, other studios don't share their excitement. They say Meghan's acting skills are mediocre at best.

American media mogul Oprah Winfrey also declined to work with Meghan, presumably out of respect for Queen Elizabeth. Meghan reportedly took the rejection hard. She gave her first exclusive interview to Ellen Degeneres as a snub to Oprah.

Photo by WENN.com

A friend told DailyMail.com that Meghan informed her close friends quitting the royal family is the best thing that could ever happen to Prince Harry. The friend said "it was her love for him that made this possible."

"She said that like her, his spirit was being crushed and she simply couldn't stand to see him suffer anymore," the friend added.

Rihanna's ex-boyfriend, Hassan Jameel is scrubbing the Internet of all photos of them together.

Robert Littal, the founder of BlackSportsOnline blog and co-host of TMZ Sports, said Jameel contacted him through his attorney, asking him to take down a photo of him and Rihanna together.

"Rihanna's billionaire ex just hit me with a request to take down a pic of him and Riri that has been up since 2017," Littal tweeted on Tuesday. "A whole three years, I don't think he is taking the breakup well."

In response to a follower, Littal tweeted: "It was more of a threat than a request lol. I am not getting in legalish [sic] with a billionaire, got to know when to pick your battles."

Littal went on to say he was "honored" that Jameel reached out to threaten him with a lawsuit. "The story in question didn't even do numbers," he said, implying that no one cared about who Rihanna was dating.

Rihanna, who has a history of failed relationships with men, dated Jameel for nearly three years - a personal record for her.

She previously dated Chris Brown, Drake, Travis Scott, and A$AP Rocky. She is rumored to have reunited with Rocky after he returned from a concert tour Sweden.

A grinning Prince Harry arrived in Canada, leaving his royal life behind after completing his royal duties in London, England.

According to published reports, Harry purchased a ticket on a British Airways Boeing 747 for the 10-hour flight from London, arriving in Victoria, British Columbia late Monday night.

The 35-year-old prince then took a West Jet turboprop plane for the short 15-minute hop to Vancouver Island. He was accompanied by three royal protection officers on his flight.

Harry's wife, formerly Her Royal Highness Meghan Markle, was not at the airport to meet Harry. She was spotted at the same airport days earlier to meet a friend flying in from mainland Vancouver.

A 3-car convoy ferried Harry and his entourage for the 10-minute drive to a gated mega-mansion where Meghan is staying with their 8-month-old son Archie Harrison.

The $14 million waterfront mansion is owned by a Russian oligarch with links to the Ukrainian government.

Friends say Harry cautioned Meghan not to get too happy in the luxury mansion as they are downsizing to more reasonable accommodations.

Sources say the 38-year-old mum of one hired a team of agents and publicists to book future TV and film roles for her. Gossip mongers say Meghan thought being in service to the Queen was beneath her.

Meghan was seen taking a leisurely stroll with her two rescue dogs in the woods near the Vancouver mansion as two royal protection officers walked a few steps behind her.

She struggled to carry baby son Archie in a baby carrier while controlling her dogs on leashes. Concerned moms on social media criticized Meghan for carrying her son so precariously with one strap of the carrier slipping off her shoulder.

Harry is expected to return to London for more official engagements, but Meghan will not be by her husband's side.

Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex have launched a new website after announcing their intention to "step back" from the monarchy and denounce their status as "senior royals".

The couple, who married in 2018, announced the shocking news on their Instagram page on Wednesday, Jan 8. In a lengthy statement, they wrote: "After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution.

"We intend to step back as 'senior' members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment."

On their new sussexroyal.com website, designed by a digital agency based in Toronto - the same firm behind Markle's now closed lifestyle blog, The Tig, the couple detailed their "new working model", including a new media relations policy, the future of their charitable work and how they will fund their lifestyles.

According to WENN.com, the couple explained they are banned from earning their own income as royals since they still receive money from the Sovereign Grant – British taxpayers - who pay their six-member security team.

The website explains: "The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are classified as internationally protected people which mandates this level of security."

The website also reiterated that they aim to become financially independent of British taxpayers so they can work "externally" and pay for their own security.

The couple, along with eight-month-old son Archie, will split their time between the U.K. and North America, and will continue to reside in their $2 million Frogmore Cottage, which is owned by the Queen.

Meghan and Harry's announcement that they were stepping back from their royal duties shocked Britain and resulted in a fierce backlash against Meghan, a 38-year-old American actress who married into the royal family against the wishes of British citizens.

Many accuse Meghan of being a narcissist who corrupted Prince Harry so she can return to Toronto to live a lavish celebrity lifestyle.

While Britain's Daily Mail newspaper reported Harry's grandmother Queen Elizabeth II was "furious" upon hearing the "bombshell" news, stars worldwide reacted to the announcement, taking to social media to share their views.

Now that they are free of the monarchy, the couple is expected to be regulars at Hollywood parties hobnobbing with celebrity friends such as Beyonce and Jay-Z.

Sources say Meghan is desperate to capitalize on her celebrity status. She is expected to appear on American talk shows, grace the covers of magazines and even a reality TV show -- all celebrity perks she was deprived of as a "senior member" of the Royal Family.

"We're hiring," wrote The Daily Show's official Twitter page after the news broke on Wednesday.

Andy Cohen, who is an executive producer of the Real Housewives franchise, added: "Open invite for The Duchess to joining #RHOBH (Real Housewives of Beverly Hills)."

Lizzo responded to the backlash she received for her disgraceful behavior at the Lakers vs Timberwolves game on Sunday.

Lakers fans were furious when the 31-year-old singer exposed her rotund butt cheeks and twerked in full view of children and old ladies in the arena and in the television audience.

Lizzo wore a long black t-shirt dress with cut outs to expose her bare butt cheeks clad in a black string thong.

Many Lakers fans called the Staples Center to complain and demand they ban Lizzo from future games.

The emotionally labile singer shared her feelings about the stunt in an Instagram Live chat with fans.

Showing a wide range of emotions from anger to profound sadness, the unstable singer told her fans to kiss her azz cheeks before adding that everyone is important and "be blessed."

"Your criticism has no effect on me," she said. "Negative criticism has no stake in my life; no control over my life, over my emotions. I'm the happiest I’ve ever been. I'm surrounded by love and I just wanna spread that love and also spread these cheeks. And you know if you really really don't like my azz, you can kiss it."

She added:

"I'm not gonna censor myself... I'm not gonna shrink myself because somebody thinks that I'm not sexy to them. (Laughs) Bitch, you really think 'cause somebody on Twitter thinks that I'm not cute, I'm gonna stop existing?"

She continued:

"I'm blessed and I want you to know that you're blessed. I want you to know that you woke up this morning and that's a blessing. I want you to know that the sun is shining somewhere. That's a blessing, and even if it's raining, it's cleansing you. It's a blessing."

At one point Lizzo teared up as she recalled being homeless and sleeping in her car.

"It felt surreal. I was, like, is this my life? I didn't want to be here anymore... I can't do this anymore. I'm not gonna make it... I think about those times now and I'm like, God is so real y'all."

The morbidly obese star thanked her fans for their support before adding.

"So I'ma keep doing whatever the f*ck I wanna do and I hope that that inspires you to do whatever the f*ck you wanna do... These are happy tears. Remember: I'm crying 'cause I love you. Don't you forget it."

Gabrielle Union and NBC bosses sat down for a "productive" five-hour meeting to discuss the actress' issues with Simon Cowell's America's Got Talent show.

Gabrielle, 47, was fired as a judge on the talent competition TV series last month, amid reports she complained to bosses about racism and sexism on the set.

NBC executives called the actress in for a meeting on Tuesday after fellow celebrities sided with the mother-of-one and called out Cowell on social media.

"The initial conversation was candid and productive," a network spokesman tells Deadline.com. "While there will be a further investigation to get a deeper understanding of the facts, we are working with Gabrielle to come to a positive resolution."

Gabrielle, who served one season as a judge on the show, took to Twitter on Wednesday to confirm she was happy with the meeting too, writing:

"We had a lengthy 5-hour, and what I thought to be, productive meeting yesterday. I was able to, again, express my unfiltered truth. I led with transparency and my desire and hope for real change."

Gabrielle and fellow judge Julianne Hough's terminations from the show are currently under investigation by bosses at the SAG-AFTRA acting union, according to WENN.com.

Simon Cowell's production company has brought in the lawyers to speak with Gabrielle Union about the alleged racism and sexism on the set of America's Got Talent.

As you know, Union was let go as a judge after hosting just one season of AGT for a reported $15 million salary. But the 47-year-old Scorpio refused to go quietly without hurling accusations of racism and sexism on the set.

Among her complaints were a joke made by by Jay Leno and notes passed to her by staffers complaining about her ever-changing hairstyles.

A source told Variety.com that staffers complained Union's hairweave was "too black" for the audience.

Cowell's production company Syco brought in lawyers for a scheduled meeting between Union, Syco NBC and producers Freemantle.

Variety.com reports that NBC plans to speak with Union to ask her about her concerns regarding the environment on the set.

A source confirmed to Page Six: "The companies are retaining outside counsel to assist us in learning more about the facts in this matter, starting with hearing from Gabrielle, which we expect to happen this week."

A source told Deadline.com that Union was anxious to meet with NBC to discuss how she can help them to improve the "toxic environment" on the set.

"Gabrielle believes there is a toxicity that has become normalized at 'Talent,'" an insider told Deadline on Monday.

"She wants to help fix that, because she loved a lot of her time on the show last season, even with the issues with Simon and what have you. But she could never go back, even if they did a [180] and asked her to for another season — no."

But sources say the "toxic" environment on the set improved as soon as Union left. They say her constant complaints to the network bosses is the main reason why she got the boot.

Gabrielle Union has involving the actor's union SAG-AFTRA in her dispute with NBC network over her controversial departure as a judge on America's Got Talent.

According to reports, Union and her fellow judge Julianne Hough were let go after just one season for underperforming as judges on the popular series.

While Hough, 31, expressed her gratitude to NBC for the opportunity, Union launched a smear campaign against NBC hoping to get her job back.

The 47-year-old Bring It On star asked the actor's union to investigate reports of racism and sexism on the set of Simon Cowell's talent competition series - reports that never surfaced publicly until after she was let go.

Union was given the boot amid reports that she made multiple complaints to TV bosses about the "toxic" workplace culture on the set.

But NBC staffers are baffled, particularly about a Variety.com report that suggests they passed notes to Union about her ever-changing hair weave. A source told Variety that staffers complained to Union that her hair was "too Black" for the audience.

But NBC staffers vigorously denied the reports. They say they only mentioned "continuity" issues related to Union's often-changing hairstyles.

FayesVision/WENN.com

In a statement sent to Variety on Sunday, a spokesperson for SAG-AFTRA, the main union representing performers and actors, said they would investigate any alleged mistreatment of Union.

"We take issues of workplace health and safety very seriously. We immediately reached out to Ms. Union's representatives when these reports came to light. It is our practice to work closely with members who reach out to us and their representatives in instances like this, as that usually affords the best protection and best resolution for the affected member."

They added: "While we have taken steps to investigate this matter, we have nothing to report now."

Earlier on Sunday, America's Got Talent producers and NBC bosses issued a statement saying that they are, "working with Ms. Union through her representatives to hear more about her concerns, following which we will take whatever next steps may be appropriate."

But Union was not impressed with the statement after retweeting a note about what a "solid apology" should look like by writer Joelle Monique.

A wide receiver who participated in Colin Kaepernick's NFL workout in Atlanta received a tryout of his own with the Cleveland Browns. Meanwhile, Kaepernick, 32, is still waiting for any team to call.

According to NFL reporter and talk show host Howard Balzer, wide receiver Jordan Veasy, got a private tryout with the Cleveland Browns.

Veasy, a former California Bear, caught passes from Kaepernick during his controversial workout at a high school in Atlanta earlier this month.

Kaepernick angered NFL execs when he switched the location of his workout at the last minute. His stunt "disappointed" Jay-Z who, along with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, arranged the workout for Kaepernick.

According to BET.com, "the Browns just signed J'Mon Moore to their practice squad, so it's unlikely they'll add Veasy as well."

The Browns are 5-6 on the year and could use help at the quarterback position. But Kaepernick's antics have shut the door on his chances to be a part of an NFL roster.

Deyjah Harris's mother, rapper Ms. Niko, seemed to call her ex-boyfriend Tip "T.I." Harris a "narcissist" after the rapper apologized profusely for joking about accompanying his daughter to the gynecologist to make sure she was still a virgin.

"Whew chile, the narcissism," Ms. Niko wrote in a post on Instagram.com. Her followers assumed she was referring to T.I.

Following an art therapy session in October, Ms. Niko opened up about a "lying" ex-boyfriend.

In a video on her IG page Ms. Niko displayed a drawing she made featuring 3 black vertical lines on white paper.

"This line right here represents him because his ass be lying, Ok?" she said. "And, if you notice, there's two more lines on the outside because he stay f---ing lying, Ok. He lies all. the. time." She continued: "I almost put a line right through the middle of this because he has crossed very many lines!"

T.I., 39, and his long-suffering wife, Tameka "Tiny" Harris, 44, visited Jada Pinkett Smith's Red Table Talk web series in an episode that aired on Monday, Nov. 25.

T.I. told Jada he was joking about comments he made regarding his daughter Deyjah's annual virginity check-up.

He admits the remarks he made during a recent podcast chat were said in a "very joking manner."

"I began, from a place of truth, I began to embellish and exaggerate. People took it extremely literal. If you put any of my reputation about who I am as a father and who I’ve been, I honestly thought people knew me better than that."

The "Paper Trail" rapper decided to break his silence after friends urged him to admit he was exaggerating. But he stressed that his priority was protecting his daughter from sticky-fingered boys in heat.

"I think that in the age or the time when our women - black women - are the most unprotected, unattended, disregarded women on the planet, I'm being criticized because I'm willing to go above and beyond to protect mine," he said in the chat, which premiered on Monday.

"Anything that is the most important thing to me in my life, I am going to deal with that with very extreme care," he continued. "And I don't understand how that is looked at as being so wrong."
