Celebrity stylist Tameka Foster emailed Sandrarose.com to correct some misinformation in my post about her sons, titled "Usher recreates magazine photo shoot with his sons for Father's Day."

I incorrectly wrote:

"Usher and [Tameka] Foster have worked together to co-parent their sons. Foster moved from Atlanta to L.A. so their sons would not have to fly coast to coast for visitations with her every month."

Tameka responded, writing:

Good morning Sandra,

It's Tameka. Hey girl hey.... Thank you for posting about my boys. But the post is a bit negative and inaccurate.

Usher and I share the boys 50/50. They are with me half of the time, if not more than half. Primary custody has to do with "tie breaking" decision making re: school, religion, health, extra curricular. We agree on those things and I’m involved in the decisions. Which was never really a debate anyway. I didn’t move to visit my kids. LOL. We moved to be closer to their Dad so HE didn’t have to commute, he was already there. I’m from Cali so it’s great. I pray you’re well and staying safe.

Thanks Sandra.

It was not my intention to post negative or misinformation about Tameka.

Pastor John Gray did not receive an "eviction notice" as was reported by multiple news outlets. Gray's publicist reached out to Sandrarose.com on Monday to deny reports that Gray's Relentless Church received an eviction notice from church landlords, Ron and Hope Carpenter.

According to Gray's publicist, the Carpenters sent Gray a notice terminating the oral lease for two properties occupied by the church in Greenville, SC.

In his response, Gray's attorneys noted that the leases are all paid up. The lawyers are in possession of a direct message that Hope Carpenter allegedly sent to someone on Facebook.com. The lawyers said the DM makes "very serious defamatory statements" about Gray.

Hope reportedly calls Pastor Gray "a shady man" and "dishonest". She allegedly said Pastor Gray and Relentless "are 3 to 4 months behind in all the bills" and "[w]e (Hope and Ron) will be taking our church back... We are very excited to have our campus back but we are very sad John Gray has not lived up to his end of the bargain."

Gray's attorneys dispute Carpenter's allegations, saying:

"The exact opposite is true. Pastor Gray and Relentless have gone above and beyond the original transfer terms to make this work. It is Ron Carpenter and Redemption Church who could no comply with the transfer agreement."

The law firm also said a church the size of Relentless can not possibly "move in 30 days, especially when the rent is current. Could it be the author threat of eviction on a 30-day notice is rally so the Carpenters can do exactly what Hope has outlined in her Facebook DM? I sincerely hope not."

Below is the letter from Gray's publicist.

Hi Sandra,

I hope all is well. Reaching out regarding your headline "John Gray's Relentless Church Faces Eviction for Not Paying Rent" mentioning my client- along with the first sentence of your story. It's false.

There is absolutely no eviction notice. They have not been served with an eviction notice and they are current with every financial obligation as outlined by the leases they are under.

A termination letter referencing a verbal agreement was sent. The letter did not however reference the actual signed lease agreement in which Redemption/ Ron Carpenter are in violation of not honoring nor did it state the notice was concerning failure to pay. Again, Relentless is current with both of their leases.

Please see attached the termination letter and the legal response to the termination letter and please edit your headline and story to reflect the truth of the situation.

Thank you

Boo! We're here to surprise you with a new celebrity couple who should probably try to keep their masks on before everyone finds out about their relationship!

There was a private Halloween party in the past few days. Lots of celebrities in costume partying at a hotel in a big U.S. city.

One of the guests was a well-known professional athlete. When our athlete made his move to the pros, he went as a first round draft pick. He has played on more than one team over a long career that may be winding down at this point.

Another of the guests was a pretty actress. You know her as one of the stars of a TV series that is popular among younger viewers and those who love comics.

    "They were hugging and kissing the whole night. He introduced her to people as his girlfriend. Nobody was allowed to take photos or videos of the two of them together."

No flash photography, please!

By the way, our athlete's wife was definitely NOT there.

We don't mean to be cavalier, but perhaps our baller should end his marriage before the mainstream media finds out about his little affair with our sweet actress?

Anger over black-on-black crime reached a boiling point after the senseless murder of beloved West Coast rapper Nipsey Hussle on Sunday. One loyal Sandrarose.com reader is fed up with rappers like T.I. (pictured right with Nipsey) who only protest when Black males are shot by white police officers.

Hi Sandra,

I read your post and the comments on the independent movie 'Brotherly Love' which I had the pleasure of viewing last night. I must say everything I read about this movie on your post was soooo off. First off it is not a comedy by no means nor is it a straight to DVD movie. I will admit I went into the theater thinking it would be some straight kiddie garbage which is what we always think when we hear independent and see a young cast with some newcomers.

Well I was totally surprised at how great this movie was. The plot is on FLEEK 10,000%, the acting was great and the film quality looks like a big budget film. It's funny,dramatic, a tear jerkier, suspenseful, about life's choices and so relatable to today's issues that you'll be as shocked as we all were in the theater. Also KeKe did a great job in this movie and I think all of the young ladies will enjoy the acting & eye candy of Quincy, Romeo, JJ, Eric and Cory, who's so gangster in this film that his sex appeal went up 100,000%!!!! Lol!!! He killed his role. It was also nice to see Macy Gray and Malik Yoba in the film.

I truly suggest everyone of all ages go see this movie. I guarantee you will not be disappointed AT ALL!!!! I saw it for free last night but plan on going to see it again with some friends on opening day because it was that good and I feel we need to support more independent movies so they can get financed and tell our stories in the right way just as this film did. THE ENDING OF THIS FILM IS SO SICK THAT IT WILL BLOW YOUR MIND!!!!! THE ENTIRE THEATER WAS GOING CRAZY, CRAZY, CRAZY!!! WE WERE IN TOTAL AWE. SMH!!!

Thanks for the post and the great pictures.
Best regards,
Keisha H.
