Singer August Alsina insists he gave former lover Jada Pinkett Smith "advanced notice" that he was going public with the salacious details of their alleged love affair.

The musician hit headlines last week after claiming he was involved in a torrid secret romance with Jada for years -- and he even received the blessing of the actress' husband of 23 years, Will Smith.

Alsina, 27, defended his decision to go public. He explained in an Instagram post on Friday, July 3, that he needed to share the truth to free himself from "oppression" and "the invisible walls of silent societal construct".

In the lengthy note, the "No Love" singer argues the backlash to his comments only serves to fuel his search to be his true self and "reach the gift of harmony within myself".

He goes on to insist he didn't betray anyone's trust, as he gave the Smiths advance notice of his candid interview with New York radio personality Angela Yee.

"My heart has no malice or hate toward anyone on this planet," he states. "I just simply want the chains off & I'm willing to DIE getting there. The gift of freedom is yours to have, God promises us that, but only if you're willing...

"i should also say that, no one was side swiped by any conversation, everyone got courtesy calls time in advance. Wishing Everyone Big Love!"

The Girls Trip star's rep dismissed the allegations as "absolutely not true", but Jada, 48, subsequently teased an upcoming tell-all episode of her Red Table Talk Facebook series.

Will Smith's sister, Ellen Smith added her 2 cents to the ongoing drama involving her old brother and his wife, actress Jada Pinkett Smith.

Will and Jada denied singer August Alsina's allegations that he was involved in a years-long affair with the mother of two.

The 27-year-old claimed Will gave him his blessing to pursue his lonely wife.

In a cryptic post on Instagram, Ellen Smith wrote:

"Those you follow and admire so much promoting truth & "keeping it real" don't seem so admirable right now huh?"

She captioned the post:

"Good afternoon all. I keep having this conversation lately. My only response is research your hero's [sic], roll models [sic] and your advisors. Everyone has a past. Some whose are relevant to the present. Pay attention please on your journey and in life. Use your intuition and discernment. If their energy feels off it probably is. People will be wolves in sheep’s clothing pretending to help you but really manipulating a situation or person to suit their own malicious needs. #staywoke."

The message, which doesn't mention her famous brother or sister-in-law, seems to suggest that somebody is lying about Jada and August's secret love affair.

Ellen, 49, is a twin who allegedly claimed she was estranged from her brother Will because he was ashamed of her dark skin.

Will, 51, is the second oldest of 4 siblings.

NeNe Leakes responded to allegations that she was let go from Real Housewives of Atlanta for insubordination and being a b*tch to her castmates.

"I promise I'll be the first to tell you myself! Thanks you for the love," she tweeted on Thursday, after blogger B. Scott reported she was fired from the reality TV series on his blog, lovebscott.com.

NeNe's manager also shut down rumors that she was dismissed from the cast after repeated acts of insubordination on and off the set.

"It is absolutely not true that Nene has been fired from RHOA," Leakes' manager, Steven Grossman tells PEOPLE. "Furthermore, it was made abundantly clear prior that she will always be welcome on the series as long as she wants to be."

But B. Scott stands by his sources, and refused to retract his article.

A confidential source told Sandrarose.com that NeNe was "hurt and depressed" after being dismissed from Bravo's longest-running 'Real Housewives' franchise.

"She thinks her friends have abandoned her and she can't trust anyone."

Negotiations between NeNe, Bravo and her manager reportedly broke down after NeNe demanded more screen time in every episode, according to Tamara Tattlez, who added that NeNe was offered a 5% raise in her letter.

It isn't clear why NeNe turned down the raise - or if she thought the 5% was beneath her.

A spokesperson for Bravo denied the reports that Leakes was not ousted from the series.

"There is no truth to this story- NeNe was not fired and conversations for the next season are still ongoing," the spokesperson tells PEOPLE.

Remember, celebrity managers are paid to shield their clients from the truth.

After months of denials, NeNe Leakes finally admits she is cheating on her cancer survivor husband, Gregg Leakes.

NeNe and RHOA castmate Kenya Moore clashed when Kenya shaded NeNe’s marriage after Page Six broke the news of her extramarital affair.

LESE / BACKGRID

According to MTO News, the 52-year-old reality TV personality made light of the rumors of her alleged affair with family friend, Rodney White -- by asking fans to let her and husband Gregg Leakes "cheat in peace."

NeNe and Gregg, 65, reportedly have an open marriage and their Duluth, Ga. home is a revolving door.

NeNe said, even though she and her husband see other people, their "bond is unbreakable."

"The bond is unbreakable! Everything else might break tho ? but not the bond!" she captioned a post on Instagram.

"For real tho, We been working on something very special lately. Noooooo not our marriage fool cause we both got side pieces? We been working on something we hope to invite you into for cocktails, small bites, smooth music and an amazing atmosphere on the north side of ATL. Coming soon! Keep yo eyes and ears open for dat!

Last week rumors spread that talk show maven Wendy Williams had suffered a mental breakdown and was hospitalized on a mental ward.

YouTube star Tasha K, who broke the news about Wendy's ex-husband, Kevin Hunter, fathering a child out of wedlock, reported that Wendy was hospitalized and may not return to her show any time soon.

But the 55-year-old talk show host resurfaced on Monday outside her Manhattan condo. Wendy looked good for someone who was supposedly hospitalized with a mental breakdown.

She wore a face mask and a grey hoodie over a black top. Her neck and wrist were dripping in diamonds.

Wendy carried a newspaper, dated June 1, 2020, as proof that she is out and about and doing well.

Wendy enlisted someone to take a photo of her for the 'Gram, since there were no paparazzi around.

She captioned the photo: "Wow June is here! I didn't see paparazzi but ok. I needed my stuff before NYC dark. Black lives have ALWAYS mattered."

One telltale sign that she was indeed in a hospital recently is a large bruise on the back of her left hand where a nurse or doctor attempted to start an IV but ruptured her fragile vein instead. The spot on her left hand is easily recognizable as an IV infiltration.

Wendy, who was filming her popular talk show from home, was forced to halt taping of the show with just a skeleton crew in her NYC studio due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Variety.com exclusively reported that Wendy was taking a hiatus due to her ongoing medical issues with Graves' disease in May.

Reportedly Williams suffered crushing fatigue among other symptoms related to her diagnosis.

"In consultation with her doctor and as a precautionary measure, she will be taking some time off as she continues to receive treatment," read a statement from her publicist.

Sources say singer/dancer DaniLeigh was not born a boy. The 25-year-old Miami native, who is quarantining with rapper DaBaby, is battling rumors that she is transgender after a popular forum identified her as one.

Yes, DaniLeigh has a chiseled jaw line, a thick brow ridge and a muscular chest, but an insider reached out to Sandrarose.com to set the record straight that she is "definitely" a biological female.

She has fallen victim to the same "man" rumors that plagued Ciara when she was at her peak in the 1990s.

DaniLeigh is best known for her star turn in Prince's music video for his single "Breakfast Can Wait". She was signed to Def Jam Records in 2017.

DaniLeigh is one of the people exposed in a lengthy thread on Lipstick Alley as a male-to-female trans. The rumor has it that a crop of new female artists are actually boys, and that they are preferred by art directors and creative directors because they are not hormonal, overly emotional, or just plain disagreeable like biological women tend to be.

Eventually, the industry will phase out most female singers and models and replace them with Unclockables such as Instagram model Sonnis Love (pictured).

"They are easier to work with and they work harder than [women]," said one insider who knows a handful of stars who are actually transgenders.

The 28-year-old Maryland woman who claims to be Jay-Z''s illegitimate firstborn daughter is seen posing in throwback photos with her real father over the years.

La'Teasha Macer claims she confirmed a DNA match to Jay-Z's grandmother through a DNA submission to Ancestry.com. Which only proves she might be related to someone on Jay-Z's grandmother's side -- not necessarily to Jay-Z himself.

Macer claims the 51-year-old rap mogul knocked up her mother during the peak of his rap career when he would have been around 23 years old.

Internet sleuths uncovered photos of Macer posing with her real father, Bobby, whose name is on her birth certificate. The pair bear a strong resemblance to each other and she looks more like him than Jay-Z.

Macer is luckier than most who grew up not knowing their biological fathers. It seems she had a loving father at every crucial stage of her life.

Macer has been making the rounds of YouTube channels, staking her claim to Jay-Z's fortune.

But her mother never pursued child support or paternity while she was young. It's highly unusual for a Black woman to leave money on the table in this day and age.

Macer herself apparently didn't retain an attorney to secure her claim to Jay-Z's estate before she turned 18.

The rapper has vigorously denied Macer's claims to his inner circle, particularly to his long-suffering wife, Beyonce Giselle Knowles, and his business associates who don't want to be entangled in a potential scandal.

Friends urge the promiscuous rapper to take a paternity test to prevent La'Teasha from making a career out of being "Jay-Z's first daughter."

Jay-Z, real name Shawn Carter, married Beyonce in 2008. They share three minor children. Jay-Z reportedly has two adult sons from previous sexual liaisons.

A woman who claims she is Jay-Z's firstborn daughter was disowned by the 51-year-old rap mogul on Tuesday.

La'Teasha Macer claims she confirmed a DNA match to Jay-Z's grandmother through a DNA submission to Ancestry.com. Which only proves she might be related to someone on Jay-Z's grandmother's side -- not necessarily to Jay-Z himself.

According to reports, La'Teasha, who was born in Cambridge, claims her mom met Jay-Z after they were introduced by an aunt.

Their friendship turned sexual, which allegedly resulted in La'Teasha's birth 28 years ago.

La'Teasha responded to skeptics who asked why her mother never pursued a paternity test before La'Teasha turned 18. She claimed her mother was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.

"I've been quiet for far too long! @jayzfirstdaughter Join me as I tell you my story of living in the shadows of being Jay-Z's daughter in a city where everyone knew he was my father!" She wrote on Instagram.

"How growing up, I watched Multiple Sclerosis take its toll on my mom. Taking my 'fun mom' that I've always known to 24-hour bedridden.

But I kept it all together raising four kids -- including a set of twins while going to school full-time, working two jobs at the prison and the hospital.
#jayzfirstdaughter"
.

But Jay-Z laughed off the woman's claims, telling insiders he never heard of the woman or her mother until reports of her claims circulated on social media.

Friends urge the promiscuous rapper to take a paternity test to prevent La'Teasha from making a career out of being "Jay-Z's first daughter."

Pastor Jamal H. Bryant has vehemently denied fathering a child in January, February, April, or May this year.

The pastor said he received many congratulations from church folk who had heard that he fathered a child recently.

All babies are a blessing from God, but the father-of-four, who heads New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in DeKalb, made an impassioned plea to his flock to disregard reports that he fathered a child this year.

He categorically denies fathering a child this year in the Atlanta area.

"One thing that I can stand true to is that the man that I am now is not the man that I used to be," Pastor Bryant said in a video on Thursday.

Pastor Bryant also wants you to know he will be blessing the first 1,000 families with groceries on Saturday at 10 a.m. at the Family Life Center at 6400 Woodrow Road in Lithonia, Ga. First come, first serve while supplies last.

And on Sunday, Mothers Day, the church will offer FREE COVID-19 tests from 11a-3p.

The streets are talking about a Grammy-winning music producer who once dated an underaged singer that he referred to as "fast" for her age. Sandrarose.com did not write the following Blind Item.

Her stepfather is a pastor and her mom is a religious, lowkey lady so she wasn't raised ratchet (although her real dad was a little rough around the edges) and came from a normal middle class background. She just got caught up in the allure of the streets early and it became a part of her identity. I feel like dealing with [incarcerated rapper] as a teenager did something to her psyche. [Music producer] recently talked about her dating him and how she would be in the projects all the time. That's why when people say he's her "soulmate", I’m like "Are people forgetting that this dude was a whole grown man messing with her when she was 16/17?" It was too much, which is also why [producer] calling her fast kinda didn't sit right with me. He knew better and was the adult in the situation regardless. And maybe [singer] doesn't feel that way (that it affected her) but IMO, it definitely had a lasting impression and influenced her "type."

Question: Who is the singer and who is the music producer?

Tiffany Haddish and spoken word rapper Common apparently split recently -- and she's spilling all his tea on social media.

Sandrarose.com was among the blogs to break the news last year that Tiffany and Common were a couple.

Her friends were happy for Tiffany, whose reported mental health issues made it difficult for her to maintain a steady relationship.

But rapper Common is in the same boat. His documented mental and emotional problems caused him to go through women like water. He broke up with CNN political analyst Angela Rye before dating Tiffany.

The couple attended a get-together with Cedric The Entertainer just last week.

And, in a video, Tiffany shared that she and Common, 48, were quarantining at home together amid the coronavirus outbreak.

The 40-year-old standup comic also claimed she was staying off birth control in an effort to have his baby.

But breakup rumors soon surfaced.

According to multiple reports, Common moved out of Tiffany's home over the weekend.

She left very angry comments on social media about a "fake ass" she laid up with, and how she’s walking out of his life forever.

This one for the people that ever talked to me for hours, hung out with me, laid down with me, told me you loved me, you would fight for me.....Smh Fake ass

cause then you turned around and tried to destroy me.

Well guess what I still Love you from the other side of the universe and I am rubber you are glue everything you say bad about me and everything you try to do to hurt me is Bouncing off of me and sticking to you 10x's more.

Stay strong cause I am as I walk out of your life forever.

Gucci Mane found himself in hot water on Sunday after tweeting that he prays his "haters die of coronavirus".

The Miami rapper took to Twitter early on Easter Sunday to share the shockingly insensitive post, tweeting: "I pray my haters die of corona virus". He also shared a photo of himself on Instagram featuring the same quote.

As WENN went to press, the Twitter post garnered over 3,100 comments and the Instagram post showed more than 13,500 responses with the majority slamming the "Big Booty" star for his remark, as well as the timing of it.

"Man you need some online church services and a hug. This is the worst timed tweet ever," tweeted mixed martial artist Gerald Harris. "There are people actually mourning the loss of loved ones now, due to the virus. Bad move big homie."

"I am agnostic and I still think this Tweet is incredibly immature particularly on a holy day," another user wrote.

The rapper didn't let the backlash change his attitude, however, choosing to leave the tweet up instead of deleting it.

Nicki Minaj has apparently had enough of the bad press surrounding her husband Kenneth "Zoo" Petty.

According to Rhymeswithsnitch, there are rumors that the couple has called it quits after two years. Over the weekend multiple fonts on social media claimed that one of Kenny's friends spilled the beans about the split on Instagram Live.

Petty, who was convicted of first-degree attempted rape in his native New York back in 1995 at age 16, turned himself in to authorities on March 4 after he was indicted by U.S. Marshals for failing to register.

The 41-year-old househusband pleaded not guilty and was freed on bond. A judge later granted Petty permission to go online after he registered as a sex offender.

Rumors spread like wildfire last night that American media magnate Oprah Winfrey was arrested for her role in a sex trafficking ring that operated out of a South Florida mansion.

Late Tuesday night, Oprah's name began trending on Twitter.com. A conspiracy theory that sprouted on Facebook last week claimed federal agents raided Oprah's South Florida home, and that she had been arrested for sex trafficking.

The conspiracy theorists, devotees of QAnon, say an anonymous government official named 'Q' secretly unsealed documents and is sharing messages and symbols that serve as evidence of a hidden plot to overthrow President Trump, according to The Washington Post.

The QAnon devotees - all overzealous Trump supporters - believe that many elite politicians, millionaires, a few billionaires, and celebrities belong to an international cabal of pedophiles and will soon be arrested.

The rumormongers swear that Oprah had been named as one of the bigwigs in documents that were unsealed in the Jeffrey Epstein and Harvey Weinstein sex abuse cases.

But Oprah, 66, denied everything after the rumors began trending last night.

"Just got a phone call that my name is trending. And being trolled for some awful FAKE thing. It's NOT TRUE. Haven't been raided, or arrested. Just sanitizing and self distancing with the rest of the world. Stay safe everybody. [prayer emoji]
— Oprah Winfrey (@Oprah) March 18, 2020."

In a viral Facebook post, the author claimed the coronavirus "is the biggest covert U.S. intelligence operation that the world has ever seen."

The author predicted that the disease would provide cover for the arrests of prominent individuals including Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Oprah Winfrey, and actor Tom Hanks, who was recently released from a hospital along with his wife, Rita Wilson, after they both tested positive for the virus in Australia.

The QAnon conspiracy theories gained momentum after U.S. President Donald Trump retweeted user photos of yellow police tape surrounding Oprah's Mediterranean villa in Boca Raton, Florida on Sunday.

The images claimed feds were "excavating the property and digging up tunnels" that were supposedly used as an underground railroad for sex traffickers to ferry children to the mansions of millionaires in the wealthy enclave of Boca.

Oprah owns many fabulous properties around the world, but none of them are in Florida, according to The Post.

Director Ava DuVernay rushed to Oprah's defense on Twitter.

"Trolls + bots began this disgusting rumor. Mean-spirited minds kept it going. #Oprah has worked for decades on behalf of others. Given hundreds of millions to individuals + causes in need. Shared her own abuse as a child to help folks heal. Shame on all who participated in this."

Mike Tyson does not play about his children. The former heavyweight boxing champ debunked a rumor that he offered $10 million to any man he would marry his daughter, Mikey Tyson.

Tyson took offense to comedian Michael Blackson for offering to impregnate Mikey.

"Where she at? I'll tear her a** up," Blackson wrote on social media. He added: "I'll then go shopping plus she's kinda cute."

He messaged Tyson privately, offering to marry his daughter and give him grandchildren.

"IF this is true, I think I'm finally ready to settle down. I known I've ben dipping n dabbing a few snow bunnies and Asian persuasion but I'm ready for your beautiful queen."

He continued:

"I'm ready to give u some grand kids that will have the complexion of Tyson Bedford [sic], knowledge of Cicely Tyson, talk like you Mike Tyson and hopefully not built like Tyson Fury. I really don't give a f**k about the money but I'll take it. Waiting to hear from you father in law sir."

Tyson was not impressed and allegedly threatened bodily harm if he ever catches Blackson offline. Blackson shared Tyson's private DMs on Instagram.

"Listen u black little bitch, this st ain't real and soon as I find the person that started that meme, imma knock hem [sic] the f*ck out so make sure it ain't you burnt roach looking bitch."

Photo by Patricia Schlein/WENN.com

The 53-year-old father of seven added: "My daughter is happily in a relationship with a nice looking man so she's not interested in an overcooked hotdog like you. Next time you do my podcast, imma knock the black off you. It might take a year because you black as f**k."

He concluded by telling Blackson to stay out of his DM "before I get your black a** deported you geico lizard looking b***h."

Mr. Blackson should heed Tyson's warning. Fathers don't take kindly to social media trolls using their daughters as click bait for likes and follows.
