Former NBA star Nick Young, aka "Swaggy P," commented on the fatal shooting of a male-to-female transgender by a Chicago teenager.

Orlando Perez, 18, confessed to shooting 37-year-old Selena Reyes-Hernandez in the head and back on May 31. Perez told police he panicked when he learned Reyes-Hernandez was a biological male.

"Once the offender realized that this victim was actually transgender, the offender became very upset," said Brendan Deenihan, chief of detectives for Chicago police, at a press conference Wednesday. "He left the residence, became more upset, and that's when he came back to the residence."

Perez was charged with murder in the first-degree. He stated he became "distraught" upon learning Reyes-Hernandez was an MtF trans. He confessed to shooting Reyes-Hernandez, then returning to the residence to shoot Reyes-Hernandez in the head and back.

"He thought that was enough so he ran out. But he kept seeing her face, so he went back there to do it again," Assistant State’s Attorney James Murphy said during Perez's bond hearing on Wednesday.

Perez was ordered held without bail at his bond hearing.

Among the celebrities commenting on the tragic shooting was Young, who last played for the Denver Nuggets in 2018.

The 35-year-old took to social media to warn other MtF transgenders to be honest with their male hookups.

In a message screencapped by Hollywood Unlocked on Instagram, Young said:

"You never wanna see someone lose [their] life but You gotta let people know B4 hand... (TO ME) this situation always gonna lead to a fight or worse with any straight man you can't just say after y'all hook up and by the way I'm a MAN and pull out some nuts out.......... a man will go crazy."

Homosexuals and Transgender people won a historic victory when the U.S. Supreme Court voted 6-3 to redefine "sex" and rewrite the 1964 anti-discrimination law to add homosexuality and transgenderism.

The historic Supreme Court decision was announced on Monday, June 15. The decision allows homosexuals and trans people to file work discrimination lawsuits in federal court.

The court consolidated three employee discrimination lawsuits into one, including a male employee who insisted on dressing as a female on the job at a Christian funeral home; a skydiving instructor who was fired for telling a customer he was gay; and a county child welfare services coordinator who was fired after his employer learned he was gay.

Republican-appointed Justices John Roberts and Neil Gorsuch joined the liberals on the bench in rendering the decision.

"Today, we must decide whether an employer can fire someone simply for being homosexual or transgender," Gorsuch wrote. "The answer is clear. An employer who fires an individual for being homosexual or transgender fires that person for traits or actions it would not have questioned in members of a different sex. Sex plays a necessary and undisguisable role in the decision, exactly what Title VII forbids."

Spartanburg County Detention Center

A South Carolina woman faces attempted murder charges after she allegedly shot at her ex and his new boyfriend during a drive-by.

Renee Lavonne Simon, 53, was arrested Sunday night after a man reported she took a shot at him and his boyfriend as they arrived home on Lincoln Drive.

No one was hurt in the shooting. Two spent shell casings were recovered outside the home.

The man told police Simon was angry at him for moving his new boyfriend in with him during the coronavirus lockdown. He said she became irate when she learned his new partner was a man.

Police said the victims showed them threatening text messages and videos Simon sent prior to the shooting.

Simon was charged with two counts of attempted murder, two counts of pointing/presenting a firearm, and two counts of possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.

She is being held at the Spartanburg County Detention Center on a $38,000 bond.

Anderson Cooper revealed that he decided to reunite with his ex-boyfriend, Benjamin Maisani, because his newborn son needs two parents.

The CNN host told Howard Stern on SiriusXM's The Howard Stern Show that he remained close with his ex Maisani, who broke up with him after a decade of dating.

Cooper, 52, said he asked Maisani to co-parent his son, Wyatt Morgan Cooper, who was delivered by a surrogate in April.

"I don't really have a family, so my friends have become my family... This is somebody I was involved with for 10 years. He's a great guy... We didn't work out as a couple," said Cooper of Maisani, 47.

Cooper gave some insight into his unhappy childhood that led to his alternative lifestyle. He confirmed that his late mother, fashion designer Gloria Vanderbilt, was not a nurturing mother.

"When I was a little kid, it was just my mom and my brother, but it was my mom -- she was not the most parental person and I wish some adult, after my dad died, had stepped in and just been like, 'You know what, I'll take you to a ball game,'" Cooper said.

Maisani reportedly dumped Cooper in 2018 after the anchorman allegedly cheated on him with a Dallas radiologist named Victor.

According to the gossipmongers on Data Lounge, Cooper hired a surrogate to deliver his baby in the hopes of enticing Maisani to come back to him.

This rarely works for heterosexual women who believe having a baby will make their cheating men stay.

Mick Jagger, Elton John and Bob Dylan are among the plethora of musicians who paid tribute to the late Little Richard who passed away from bone cancer on Saturday, May 9. He was 87.

The man dubbed "The Originator" and "The Architect of Rock and Roll" passed away after years of battling poor health, his son Danny Penniman confirmed to Rolling Stone on Saturday.

In a statement, Richard’s agent, Dick Alen, said:

"Little Richard passed away this morning from bone cancer in Nashville. He was battling for a good while, many years. I last spoke to him about two or three weeks ago. I knew he wasn’t well but he never really got into it, he just would say 'I'm not well.'"

Richard Wayne Penniman was born in Macon, Georgia, on December 5, 1932. He was the third of 12 children. His mother, Leva Mae, was a homemaker and a member of Macon's New Hope Baptist Church. His father, Charles "Bud" Penniman, sold bootleg moonshine and owned a nightclub in Macon called the Tip In Inn.

Richard began singing in church at a young age. He was a mischievous child who played pranks on his neighbors. He had an unusual walk because one of his legs was shorter than the other. He was teased by other children for his walk and his effeminate ways.

Richard said in 1984 that he only played with girls as a child and his father brutally beat him when he caught him wearing his mother's makeup and clothing.

Richard was a below average student at Macon's Hudson High School. He learned to play alto saxophone and joined his school's marching band in the fifth grade.

Richard's early musical influences were Mahalia Jackson and his favorite singer, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, who paid him to sing at one of her shows.

He stated he was inspired to play the piano after he heard Ike Turner's piano intro on "Rocket 88." Richard left home to perform in a traveling music revue and vaudeville acts. He also performed in drag under the stage name "Princess LaVonne".

After moving to Atlanta, Richard signed with RCA Victor and recorded his first hit song, a blues ballad entitled "Every Hour". The single was a regional hit and helped reunite Richard with his father, who regularly played the song on his nightclub jukebox.

In February 1952, Richard left RCA Victor. That same month his father was killed in a violent confrontation outside his nightclub.

Richard struggled in poverty for the next 2 years, eventually landing a job as a dishwasher for Greyhound Bus Lines back in Macon.

While in Macon, he met Esquerita, a fellow gay, Black singer and pianist, whose flamboyant onstage persona and dynamic piano playing would deeply inspire Richard.

Openly gay musician Billy Wright, befriended Richard and taught him to wear pancake makeup and to style his hair in a long pompadour similar to his own.

"I wore the makeup so that white men wouldn't think I was after the white girls," he told Jet magazine in 2000.

Richard dated both women and men earnestly. He was intrigued by heterosexual couples having sexual intercourse. A female friend would drive him around Macon at night and pick up men who allowed him to watch them have sex in the backseat.

His obsession with voyeurism got him arrested after a gas station attendant reported sexual activity in a car Richard was occupying with a heterosexual couple. He spent 3 nights in jail and was temporarily banned from performing in Macon.

Richard met his only wife, Ernestine Harvin, at an evangelical rally in October 1957. Their marriage ended in divorce in 1964 due to his celebrity status and sexual lifestyle.

In 1957, Richard withdrew from Oakwood College after exposing himself to a male student. In 1962, he was again arrested for spying on men urinating in toilets at a Trailways bus station in Long Beach, California.

Despite his obvious sexual proclivities, Richard denied being gay during an appearance on Late Night with David Letterman in 1982. He said:

"God gave me the victory. I'm not gay now, but, you know, I was gay all my life. I believe I was one of the first gay people to come out. But God let me know that he made Adam be with Eve, not Steve. So I gave my heart to Christ."

In 1955, Richard landed a recording contract with Specialty Records and recorded a dirty blues track titled "Tutti Fruitti." The record label owner thought the song had potential but he hired a songwriter to tone down Richard's raunchy lyrics.

"Tutti Fruitti" became an instant hit, eventually selling 1 million copies. Richard helped shatter the color barrier on the music charts, joining Chuck Berry and Fats Domino in bringing what was once called "race music" into the mainstream.

His captivating combination of energetic piano playing, howling vocals and outrageous style made him an implausible sensation, and the first openly gay, Black man celebrated across America for his flamboyance and art.

Following his breakthrough hit, Richard recorded "Long Tall Sally" which landed at No. 1 on the Billboard Rhythm and Blues Best-Sellers chart. He scored 15 more top-selling singles, including "Good Golly Miss Molly", "Slippin' and Slidin'" and "Lucille."

Richard also influenced countless music legends, from The Beatles to David Bowie, the Rolling Stones, Elton John and Prince. Icons tweeted their heartfelt condolences to the rock pioneer.

"I'm so saddened to hear about the passing of Little Richard, he was the biggest inspiration of my early teens and his music still has the same raw electric energy when you play it now as it did when it first shot through the music scene in the mid 50's," Mick Jagger wrote on social media.

"When we were on tour with him I would watch his moves every night and learn from him how to entertain and involve the audience and he was always so generous with advice to me. He contributed so much to popular music. I will miss you Richard, God bless."

Elton John added that Richard was, "Without a doubt — musically, vocally and visually" his biggest influence, noting: "His records still sound fresh and the opening few seconds of "Tutti Frutti" are the most explosive in music history."

"He was my shining star and guiding light back when I was only a little boy," added Bob Dylan. "His was the original spirit that moved me to do everything I would do."

Paul McCartney admitted: "I owe a lot of what I do to Little Richard and his style; and he knew it. He would say, 'I taught Paul everything he knows'."

And former Beatles bandmate Ringo Starr wished "peace and love" to one of his "all-time musical heroes."

Former First Lady Michelle Obama, and filmmakers Ava DuVernay and John Waters were among the stars who also shared tributes to the late musician.

"I served soul food brunch to Little Richard every Sunday for a year while waitressing at Aunt Kizzy's Back Porch in LA," DuVernay tweeted on Saturday. "I was a college student. He tipped me a crisp $100 bill each week on a $75 breakfast with friends. This was 30 years ago. Helped me so much. God rest his soul."

Barack Obama's brother Malik Obama, also known as Abongo or Roy, is among those targeting new father Anderson Cooper.

The 52-year-old CNN anchor announced his son was delivered by a surrogate last week. Cooper, who is openly homosexual, said he and an ex-boyfriend will raise the child together without a mother.

In a series of tweets on April 30, Malik Obama attacked Cooper.

"How A Man and A Man Have A Baby? HOW!?" Malik tweeted.

"Is He Not Gay (Homosexual)?" he captioned a retweet of a CNN article on Cooper becoming a new dad.

Malik followed up, tweeting: "This Is Abnormal."

Barack and Malik share the same father. Malik was born in Kenya. He claims his brother was also born in Kenya.

Christian conservatives also attacked Cooper for raising the child without a biological mother.

"A boy deserves his mother, yet if I understand your plan correctly, your son will not be raised together by her and by you. That's what saddens me the most," Christian evangelist Michael Brown wrote for Charisma News.

"Can you imagine what your life would look like today without the influence of your mother? Can you imagine Anderson Cooper without Gloria Vanderbilt?" Brown asked. "Who would you be without your mom?"

Wilmington PD

Police in North Carolina are asking for the public's help to find a missing lesbian couple who recently got engaged after moving in together.

Stephanie Mayorga, 27, and Paige Escalera, 25, disappeared shortly after moving in together. They have not been seen since April 15, the Wilmington Police Department said Monday.

The women recently became engaged though they haven't known each other long, Escalera's sister Stevie Jenkins told Oxygen.com.

She said one of the women left her cell phone behind on her bed. The couple's new roommate found the phone.

"They had only lived there a week or so before they went missing," Jenkins told Oxygen.com. "As I have been contacting her close friends, I have found that every single one of them had been blocked from her social media over the last week or two.

"It is normal for family to not hear from her, but not her closest friends. As I spoke with Stephanie's friends, they say it isn't normal at all that they don't hear from Stephanie."

Jenkins said Mayorga's phone had been cut off on April 15 -- the same day they vanished.

"Her boss says he tried calling her when she never showed the next morning."

Jenkins said her sister has had her share of troubles but said "she is an amazing person and has always pulled out making the right choices."

Police believe the women may be traveling in a dark grey Dodge Dart with South Carolina tags.

An Air Force veteran and his life partner died just two days apart after both were diagnosed with coronavirus.

The coronavirus that causes COVID-19 has taken a heavy toll on the Black and LGBQ communities.

Phillip Tsai-Brooks, 42, and his life partner Anthony Brooks, 52, died just two days apart at Methodist Hospital Metropolitan.

Anthony, an Air Force veteran, fell ill first after returning home to San Antonio, Texas from an out-of-town trip. Phillip, who owned a hair salon, got sick days later.

According to Express News, Phillip's doctor thought he had a bad reaction to a whooping cough vaccination. He was sent home on medication on March 20. But on his second visit to the hospital on March 26, his health took a turn for the worse and he was admitted to the hospital.

Phillip (left) updated his social media followers on his health status. He was confident he would be released in a couple of days.

"Back in the ER.. oxygen super low. Heart rate low. Shortness [of] breath vomiting blood pressure high fever 102.9," Phillip wrote on Facebook.

He added: "Update: I tested positive for corona. Be here for a couple of days.. then quarantine 14 day."

Anthony was diagnosed with coronavirus after he fell ill with pneumonia, but he refused to go to the hospital. Anthony's mother had died in January and his father passed away in March, according to London's DailyMail.com.

"Despite multiple attempts to get Tony to go to the ER, he refused to go," Phillip's brother, Robert Tsai, told Express News. "I don't know if he thought he could fight through his symptoms."

Anthony was found unconscious at his home on March 31. He joined Phillip in the intensive care unit at Northeast Baptist Hospital and both were transferred to the ICU at Methodist Hospital and placed on ventilators.

"Both were on ventilators and were given the hydroxychloroquine cocktail," said Robert, referring to the drugs Plaquenil and Azythromycin.

Anthony, the sickest of the two, was hooked up to an extracorporeal membrane oxygenation machine, a type of life support machine that bypasses the lungs to deliver oxygenated blood directly to the heart and remove carbon dioxide.

At the same time Phillip's health seemed to improve. He was sitting up in his hospital bed and chatting with his family when he suddenly had trouble breathing.

"A bit later, Phil's heart stopped," said Robert. "They tried for 38 minutes to resuscitate him, but weren't able to do so."

Anthony was given a blood plasma transfusion before he passed away two days later. He wasn't aware his life partner had died before him.

Now Anthony's brother-in-laws are left to plan funerals for both of them.

They broke the news to their mother, Pacita, who lived with the couple in their Texas home. She is under quarantine after she fell ill with COVID-19.

"It's very hard," Phillip's brother Alfred told Express News. "We had to arrange for my other brothers that live in San Antonio to stand outside the house while we tell her the news. That's the heartbreaking side. We can't go in. My brothers can't go in and comfort her. She's standing in the doorway crying."

Alfred said the couple had traveled the world and took his mother Pacita everywhere with them.

COVID-19 causes mild symptoms or no symptoms in most healthy adults. The virus causes acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and potentially fatal pneumonia among the elderly, particularly those with chronic illnesses such as respiratory and heart problems, HIV/AIDS, obesity, and smokers.

The CDC offers the following tips to avoid spreading the flu or Covid-19 virus:

1. Do not touch your face with unwashed hands
2. Wash your hands frequently for at least 20 seconds
3. Avoid close contact with sick people
4. Sneeze and cough into a tissue or your elbow
5. Stay home if you are sick
5. Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces
6. When in doubt consult with a healthcare professional

Rapper Meghan Thee Stallion has opened up about her alternate sexual lifestyle, revealing she likes girls.

The "Hot Girl Summer" hitmaker insists she's "not scared of the ladies" when it comes to intimacy, and she believes women should be able to explore their sexuality without judgment.

The rapper, who was born Megan Jovon Ruth Pete, has been the subject of lesbian rumors since before she released her first full-length album, Fever, on May 17, 2019.

"I mean, you know I kissed a few girls before. We not scared of the ladies. It's all love," she tells British Vogue. "In real life, I'm really about what I be talking. Men are free to do what they want to do, date whoever they want to date and women should have the same options, without judgment."

While the Texas native has chosen to be candid about her personal life, she doesn't appreciate strangers commenting on her sexual lifestyle. Megan's gimmick is her sultry personality and all natural hot bod. She knows sex sells more records - to her male fans.

But her fans pulled Megan's lesbun card last year.

"Sometimes people try to put you in a box, right, and they try to put their views on you and they try to make you behave how everybody in society feels you should behave.

"But this is my s**t! This is my body, my mouth, my lyrics, this is what I want to say, this is how I want to act. I really want people to stop caring about how other people want them to live and to start to live for themselves. Cos I'm living for myself and I'm doing d**n good with myself!"

For years, Black women have been quietly packing up and leaving Atlanta due to the decreasing numbers of available straight Black men here.

The situation is dire now that the coronavirus has changed the dating landscape and forced people to shelter inside.

Some men are choosing to shelter with their "homies" and former "college roommate" who really happen to be their undercover lovers.

Many Black women are venting their frustrations on social media where they complain about their men shacking up with other men instead of them.

One woman made a desperate plea to the gheys to stop "turning out" straight men in Atlanta.

The shortage of straight men in Atlanta has led to an excess of newly minted lesbians -- formerly straight ladies who jumped the fence out of necessity and a strong desire for intimacy.

Dozens of ghey men caught the coronavirus after attending the annual LGBTQ Winter Party Festival in Miami, Florida last month.

At least 38 ghey men were infected with the virus after attending the party, but the real number of infected may be much higher.

The coronavirus causes COVID-19 that results in acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and potentially fatal pneumonia among the elderly, particularly those with chronic illnesses such as HIV/AIDS, respiratory and heart problems, obesity, and smokers.

At least three men are dead from coronavirus after attending the party. Many more are infected or may be infected but didn't get tested or make the test results public.

The dead men were ages 40, 65 and 67. The party organizers know of 38 people who attended the event who were later diagnosed with the virus. Many more - perhaps hundreds more - may have been infected and died.

A ghey doctor in Boston who attended the party and tested positive for the virus said he shared a house in Miami with two other ghey men who had symptoms of the virus but were not tested.

Thousands of gheys from around the world attended the Winter Party in early March, defying public health officials' warnings against large gatherings of over 250 people, according to LGBTQ Nation.

Jussie Smollett has been caught in another lie. The disgraced actor and his alleged attacker, Abel Osundairo, previously enjoyed a sexual relationship, an insider has alleged.

The 37-year-old actor was arrested last January for making false reports to the Chicago Police Department after he claimed he was attacked by 2 Trump supporters in a vicious hate crime attack in the city.

The Chicago police insist he staged the attack himself to gain publicity and to earn more money from Empire producers.

Investigators say Smollett paid Abel (pictured left) and his brother Ola Osundairo (right) to stage the beating.

The charges were eventually dropped by Harris's friend, state prosecutor Kim Foxx, probably as a favor to their friend Michelle Obama.

In February, the new special prosecutor indicted Smollett on 6 charges of disorderly conduct.

Smollett, who is reportedly related to California Sen. Kamala Harris, pleaded not guilty and denied the charges. He claimed he paid the brothers $3,500 for performance enhancing drugs, but not to stage a crime.

Smollett reportedly arranged for Abel and Ola to appear as extras in Empire. Ola is pictured at right in this jailhouse scene with Taraji P. Henson (center).

According to a new report, the former Empire star was sexually involved with Abel Osundairo after meeting at an upscale Chicago ghey bathhouse for affluent ghey men.

"They used to party together and he had a sexual relationship with (Abel)," a source told the New York Post's gossip column Page Six. "They went to this affluent Chicago bathhouse multiple times and they had to show ID. It's known as a bathhouse where a lot of affluent black gay men hang out.

"There should be a record (of their visits)," the source said, adding that the bathhouse records may be subpoenaed in Smollett's upcoming trial on charges of disorderly conduct.

Former NBA star Nick Young apparently waited until he was out of the league to formally declare his preference for men.

His female fans were stunned when a viral photo showed the 34-year-old, 6' 7" shooting guard holding hands with a short, bow legged man.

Young also shocked his Instagram followers when he complimented the same man's sexy lips.

Young's nickname is "Swaggy P", which he said is a pseudo-biblical reference to "the Prophet of Swag."

Young was a standout star for the USC Trojans and was selected by the Washington Wizards in the first round of the 2007 NBA draft with the 16th overall pick. He played 5 tumultuous years for the Los Angeles Lakers (2013–2017) and he won an NBA championship with the Golden State Warriors in 2018.

Nothing in Young's personal life gave insight into his hidden lifestyle. He fathered three children - 2 sons and a daughter - with his high school sweetheart Keonna Green. He is a doting dad to his children.

The couple's last two children were born in 2019 and 2016 - the same year he called off his engagement to rapper Izzy Azalea.

Young was caught creeping with other women over the years, but there was no indication that he also slept with men.

Young is the latest sports star to "come out" of the closet after retirement.

A veteran Birmingham police detective was arrested for killing her girlfriend who was also having an affair with a male Birmingham police detective.

Police responded to Germania Park around 11:51 p.m. Friday after the city's gunshot detection system, ShotSpotter, alerted them to shots fired in the park near Pearson Avenue.

According to news reports, Alfreda Fluker, 39, walked up to the passenger side door of the patrol car and shot Kanisha Nicole Fuller multiple times through the window.

Fuller, 43, was sitting in the parked car with an unidentified male police detective who did not return fire.

Fuller was rushed to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead.

According to law enforcement website LEOaffairs.com, Fluker was in a relationship with Fuller and shot her after finding out she was also having an affair with the male police detective.

Fluker was taken into custody at her West Birmingham home just before 7 a.m. on Saturday.

The police chief described the love triangle as "something that's been going on for a little while, but without our knowledge."

Fluker, who was off-duty at the time of the shooting, had been a police detective with the Birmingham Police Department's Crime Reduction Team for 15 years.

Initial reports stated Fluker and Fuller were both involved with the male police detective.

According to Fuller's Facebook page, she was the manager of a Birmingham IHOP and the mother of a teenage son.

Fluker is being held without bond in the Jefferson County Jail. She faces multiple charges, including shooting into an occupied vehicle and capital murder.
