Russell and Ciara Wilson provided students in West Seattle with sound financial advice and cash to help break the cycle of poverty.

The A-list couple surprised students at the Denny International Middle School via a virtual visit. They talked to the students about financial literacy and building wealth.

They also donated $40 seed money ($36,000) to 900 students so each student can open their own bank account.

Russell, 32, and Ciara, 35, taught the students about investing and compounding interest in their savings accounts. The children were told they can't touch the funds in their bank accounts until they turn 18 years old.

"All these things can pay back tremendously if you invest in them in the right way," Ciara said. "Investing is very powerful, and it will also allow you to create an opportunity to build legacy for your family."

The virtual event was arranged in partnership with the NFL Player's Association and Goalsetter, the New York-based financial technology company.

South Africa's Queen Mantfombi Dlamini Zulu died suddenly on Friday, April 30, weeks after her husband, the king, died of a diabetes-related illness.

Queen Mantfombi, 65, was one of King Goodwill Zwelithini's six wives. King Goodwill died on March 12, 2021 in the eastern city of Durban. He was 72.

The queen was elected the Regent of the Zulu Nation in line with the king's wishes.

His Majesty's will was read in the presence of more than 200 members of the Royal Family on March 24, 2021.

King Zwelithini (pictured left) is survived by five wives and 28 children. He married his sixth wife, Queen Zola Mafu, after she turned 18 on July 26, 2014.

While Her Majesty Queen Mantfombi acted as the de facto Regent of Zulu nation, further decisions on the succession of the Zulu Monarchy were pending until the family's mourning period for the king had ended.

Traditional Prime Minister to the Zulu monarch Mangosuthu Buthelezi, 92, denied rumors that she was poisoned.

"This has taken us by surprise and left us utterly bereft," he said.

Queen Mantfombi was admitted to a hospital last week, exactly a month after she was elected regent, following her husband's death.

The Queen was the third senior Zulu royal to be buried in recent months following the death of Zwelithini's eldest son in November, and the king's death in March.

The headline isn't true, but inquiring minds want to know why our people have a habit of brawling in public spaces.

Two separate brawls occurred at Miami International Airport last week. No one knows what triggered the fisticuffs. Concerned Caucasian passengers screamed at the combatants: "STOP IT! You're gonna get in trouble!"

No one wants to see more Black men dead or end up in prison. Security eventually showed up, but they stood around and did nothing to break up the fights.

Social experts who study such trends believe the increase in fights at airports is directly related to excess government benefits. Unemployment and stimulus checks allows more freedom for people who would normally stay home and fight.

A record 34% of household income in 2021 comes from government benefits.

If the Miami brawls weren't bad enough, two brawls broke at Chicago's O'Hare Airport this week.

This time the combatants were Black women. Hair extensions and wigs littered the concourse as the two groups of women fought.

Once again, concerned white people stepped in to break up the fights.

Josh Duggar, 3rd from left, made his first court appearance on Friday morning following his arrest by federal agents in Arkansas on Thursday.

Duggar, 33, appeared before the judge at the Western District of Arkansas Federal Court from jail via Zoom on Friday, where he entered a plea of not guilty on all counts.

The father-of-7 declined to have his charges read in open court.

However, TMZ reports he was hit with charges of receiving and possessing child pornography, including images of minors below the age of 12.

According to the legal documents, the "19 Kids and Counting" star knowingly received child p0rn in mid-May 2019. The charges follow a federal raid by Homeland Security agents on his now-shuttered car dealership in 2019.

His next court hearing is set for next week to determine if Duggar will be granted bond. He will remain in custody until then.

If bond is granted, Duggar will be required to stay with a third-party custodian, and that person can't have unsupervised minors in the home.

If convicted, Duggar faces up to 20 years in prison and fines up to $250,000.00 on each count.

This isn't Duggar's first brush with the law. Duggar's father, Jim Bob Duggar (pictured far right), reported then-14-year-old Josh to police after he allegedly molested 5 minors. It isn't clear if the victims included some of his 18 siblings.

His trial is scheduled for July.

Amy Schumer says her vagina is "street trash" since getting married to Chris Fischer in 2018. Schumer explained the biggest change in her life on Kevin Hart's "Comedy Gold Minds" podcast.

"It's honestly just like, huge now and just garbage. It's just street trash. Yeah, I would say my street trash p—-y is probably [the biggest change]."

Then Schumer got serious, saying her marriage also trashed her social life.

"I don't go out anymore. I mean, it's also the pandemic, but I'd be down at the Cellar every night doing standup, and now it's like, if a friend is like, 'Want to meet out at 8:00 PM?,' I'm like '8:00pm?! Sorry, I'm in ...' I mean, I'm not in bed, I stay up, you know..."

Amy Schumer, 39, and Fischer, 41, welcomed their first child, Gene Fischer, in May 2019.

There years into their marriage -- an eternity in Hollywood -- Schumer says the dopamine is fading.

"We probably have sex every seven to 10 days. We need to do that more."

She said they schedule their sex sessions now.

"I go, 'Do you want to have sex?' And he makes this face," she said. "He kind of pictured it, and like, winced. He's imagining it and he made a face kind of like he ate something bad."

Schumer said Fischer then told her, "How about tomorrow?” to which she replied, "Great. Thank you. I feel really good."

Wanya Morris is not having any disrespect from Kandi Burruss. According to ATLien of StraightfromtheA.com, Kandi appeared on Instagram Live with R&B legend Eddie Levert and one of Gerald Levert's daughters.

If you recall, Kandi was romantically involved with the late, great singer, Gerald.

During the livestream, Eddie asked Kandi to discuss the worst experience she has ever had working with other artists.

Kandi (pictured below with daughter Blaze) named Boyz II Men as a particularly "bad experience" she had in the recording studio.

When asked for details, Kandi laughed and said, "We fell out after that. It was an issue. I don't think I've ever been disrespected like that before in a studio in my life!"

Kandi said she has moved past the difficulties they had in the studio. But Wanya was not pleased that Kandi dug up old dirt about his former group.

He spilled the tea -- and it's easy to see why Kandi didn't want to discuss it.

Leon Bennett/Getty Images

Wanya, pictured center with Nathan Morris (left) and Shawn Stockman (right), said he worked on a song with Kandi, and her then-boyfriend, music producer Shakespeare.

After they completed the song, Kandi demanded to discuss her "splits" of the songwriting credits right then and there.

That's not how we work, said Wanya (left), who added, "I have nothing bad to say about Kandi. It's just we work differently."

At first, Wanya was cordial, but then he said, "Personally, I could take her or leave her." He then disparaged Kandi's entire songwriting career by suggesting she was blacklisted in the industry.

"After TLC and Boyz II Men and a couple of other people -- she hasn't worked since, right? Music wise?"

Earlier this week, Twitter users criticized Tariq Nasheed for posting a viral video of a Holiday Inn employee being berated by a customer.

The employee, Caleb. C., is seen beating himself up after a customer berated him over a reservation error.
 

Caleb later wrote a Reddit post explaining that he suffered from bipolar disorder and schizoaffective disorder. He also revealed he was in a same-sex relationship.

Studies over the years have revealed a strong link between homosexuality and autism.

One recent online survey of 309 individuals diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) reveled nearly 70% of the respondents were LGBT+.

Research suggests that individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) report increased homosexuality, bisexuality, and asexuality, but decreased heterosexuality.

Caleb didn't include autism syndrome as one of his mental disorders. However, most homosexuals with high functioning autism are never diagnosed.

Why is the link between homosexuality and autism important?

The link is important because Caleb should have been at home collecting disability payments rather than working the night shift where he is subjected to abuse.

In 1973, the American Psychiatric Association (ASA) voted to remove homosexuality from its list of mental illnesses. As a result, people like Caleb, who are autistic and suffer from other mental disorders, can't apply for disability payments.

Most people who viewed the video of Caleb's meltdown agree that he shouldn't have been working a front desk job -- even though he was working the overnight shift.

He beat himself up -- first with his fist and then with a computer monitor -- because lacked the coping skills to withstand the harassment from the customer.

A GofundMe account created for Caleb has raised $130,000. But it's clear that he can't work a public-facing job again.

If you are LGBT+ and have ever wondered "Am I autistic?", the following signs and symptoms may apply to you:

1. Socially awkward

2. Hyper sensitive to bright lights or certain noises (loud music)

3. Depression or anxiety

4. Drawn to repetitive actions or behaviors

5. Easily upset when told to stop a task in the middle

6. Can't handle even a minor change

7. Prefer to be alone

8. Common phrases confuse you ("No man is an island")

9. You don't recognize sarcasm

10. You repeat words or phrases during conversations

11. You are intensely focused on specific interests (gaming, social media, etc.)

12. Have an exceptional talent (art, music, writing, etc.)

13. Have a tough time interacting with others

14. You're lactose intolerant

15. You sometimes stare without realizing it (someone tells you you're staring)

The couple announced last August that they were expecting their first child together. Ice was born on December 23.

Ka'oir, who has been 36 years old for the past 5 years, did not address rumors that little Ice is an IVF baby. The Internet insists the baby isn't theirs because he doesn't favor either of them.

Many celebrities have chosen IVF and/or surrogates to carry and deliver their children. The reasons vary from infertility to not wanting baby weight.

Gucci Mane, born Radric Davis, married Keyshia Ka'oir, the founder of Ka'oir Cosmetics and Ka'oir Fitness, in Miami on October 17, 2017. She has three children from a previous relationship.

BET Network paid over $1 million for the nuptials which aired on BET Network. Gucci Mane later denied the network paid for his wedding after his baby mama asked a judge to increase her child support for his eldest son.

Gucci disclosed in his autobiography that he has a son born in 2007 whom he did not know about until the child was 10 months old. He apparently has never met the boy.

The 5 suspects who stole two of Lady Gaga's prized French bulldogs and shot her dogwalker pleaded not guilty in Los Angeles Superior Court on Thursday.

The liberal judge, Victoria Wilson, ordered no photographs of the five suspects in court to shield their identities.

Three of the suspects — James Jackson, 18; Jaylin White, 19; and Lafayette Whaley, 27 — were charged with attempted murder and armed robbery, according to the LAPD.

Two other suspects -- Harold White, the 40-year-old father of Jaylin White, and his girlfriend Jennifer McBride, 50, were charged with being accessories after the fact.

McBride was released on bail and ordered to remain on house arrest with an ankle monitor after her lawyer argued that she is a diabetic and did not have her insulin with her.

Jackson was held on $3 million bail, according to Dailymail.com. The others are being held without bail.

All five are charged with armed robbery and the theft of pop singer Lady Gaga's dogs on Feb. 24.

Gaga's father, Joe Germanotta, told Entertainment Tonight: "That's fabulous news. I hope the L.A. prosecutor doesn't let them go.

"It's taken a while and I'm proud of the police department out there for sticking with it. As I said, I just hope that the DA doesn't let them go now. I'm going to give my daughter a call. I'm sure she'll be happy."

Gaga's dogs were returned to her 2 days after the incident when she offered a $500,000 reward for their safe return. Jennifer McBride contacted Gaga's people via email and claimed she found the dogs in an alley.

However, police reviewed surveillance video of the woman dropping the dogs off car the location where she claimed she found them. McBride turned the dogs over to the Los Angeles Police about 7 miles from where they were taken at gunpoint.

Gaga did not pay out the $500,000 reward because detectives were suspicious that McBride might be linked to the dognappers.

McBride is charged as an alleged accessory after the fact, as well as on one count of receiving stolen property.

According to Los Angeles Police Department officials, Harold White was also charged as an accessory after the fact and with a count of possession of a firearm, while James Jackson, Jaylin White and Lafayette Whaley have been have each been charged with one count of attempted murder, conspiracy to commit robbery and second-degree robbery.

Jackson also faces two further firearm charges, assault with a semiautomatic firearm and a felon carrying a concealed firearm in a vehicle, and White faces a count of assault by means of force likely to produce great bodily injury.

Detectives don't believe the suspects - who are all Los Angeles gang members - targeted Gaga's dogwalker Ryan Fischer. They believe greed and the high value of the dogs were the motivating factors.

Ryan was shot when he was walking Gaga's three dogs – Miss Asia, Koji, and Gustavo – and during the attack, Miss Asia ran away from the scene while Koji and Gustavo were captured by the robbers.

Miss Asia was later recovered and returned the same day, before Koji and Gustavo were found two days after the shooting.
