"@kanyewest I got over 100 acres," Thugger wrote. "However many you need they're yours free of charge. On GOD."

Earlier this week Kanye complained that the GAP stole his designs and canceled a photo shoot featuring his four children in Japan.


He was disappointed that GAP and Adidas failed to build brick and mortar stores for his collection like they promised.

"I signed with both adidas and Gap because it contractually stated they would build permanent stores which neither company has done even though I saved both of those companies at the same time. Ima show you how to use social media."

Kanye also FaceTimed with Atlanta rapper 2 Chainz who put him in contact with Atlanta mayor, Andre Dickens.

"2 Chainz said he got the mayor('s) number," Ye wrote in a video caption. "I added the s cause my mama was head of the English department. But this may take some incorrect English to get done."

"It's not a collab it's theft," an outraged Kelis told her followers on social media. She also blamed music producers Pharrell Williams and his Neptunes co-producer Chad Hugo.

Beyonce responded in typical fashion by snatching the sample from her album, Renaissance. She still hasn't called Kelis.

Chris Rock is being canceled for cracking a joke about Nicole Brown, the late ex-wife of O.J. Simpson.

Rock, 57, was performing in Phoenix on Sunday when he reportedly told the audience he was asked to host the 2023 Oscar Awards.

Rock was a presenter at the 2022 Oscars in March when former A-list actor Will Smith slapped him for joking about Jada Pinkett Smith's bald head.

Rock told the Phoenix audience he declined the offer to host next year's Oscars because it would be like asking Nicole Brown to go back to the restaurant where she ate her last meal before being stabbed to death at her home later that night.

Rock told the audience that Smith's slap really hurt. He referenced Smith's role as champion boxer Muhammad Ali in a movie.

"He's bigger than me," Rock said. "The state of Nevada would not sanction a fight between me and Will Smith."

Nicole Brown, 35, was killed after dining at the trendy Mezzaluna Trattoria restaurant on Sunday, June 12, 1994.

Simpson was tried for her murder and acquitted in October 1995.

Meghan Markle says she was not treated as a Black woman in America until she began dating Britain's Prince Harry.

The Duchess of Sussex interviewed American pop singer Mariah Carey in the latest episode of her No. 1 ranked Spotify podcast "Archetypes."

Archetypes shot to number 1 two days after it dropped, replacing "The Joe Rogan Experience" as the top podcast on Spotify in America on Thursday.

Meghan, 41, and Mariah, 53, spoke about their shared experiences as biracial women growing up in America.

"I didn't fit in. I didn't fit in," said Mariah, who moved with her family over a dozen times as a child. She is pictured with rapper Jay Z in a photo dated January 27, 2018.

"You know, it would be more of the Black area of town or then you could be where my mom chose to live, were the more, the white neighborhoods. And I didn't fit in anywhere at all," Mariah said.

"Yeah, I understand that," Meghan said, adding that she looked forward to welcoming Mariah on her podcast because they looked like each other.

"You were so formative for me. Representation matters so much," Meghan said.

"But when you are a woman and you don't see a woman who looks like you somewhere in a position of power or influence, or even just on the screen — because we know how influential media is — you came onto the scene, I was like 'Oh, my gosh. Someone kind of looks like me.'"

Meghan said she was also inspired by biracial Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry, who couldn't easily pass as white because her skin was dark.


"I had read this article about Halle Berry, and they were asking her how she felt being treated as a mixed-race woman in the world. And her response was her saying, 'Well, your experience through the world is how people view you.' So she said because she was darker in color, she was being treated as a Black woman, not as a mixed woman."

"And I think for us, it's very different because we're light-skinned," Meghan added. "You're not treated as a Black woman. You're not treated as a white woman. You sort of fit in between."

Meghan enjoyed her privilege as a white woman in America, until she began dating Prince Harry.

"I mean, if there's any time in my life that it's been more focused on my race, it's only once I started dating my husband. Then I started to understand what it was like to be treated like a Black woman. Because up until then, I had been treated like a mixed woman. And things really shifted."

LeToya Luckett enjoyed Sunday brunch with her children - daughter, Gianna Iman Walker, 4, and 2-year-old son, Tysun Wolf Walker.

The actress and singer shared photos of their outing on her Instagram page.

She captioned the images: "Sunday fun day with my babies."

Prince Williams/

LeToya and the children's father, Tommicus Walker (pictured), divorced in 2021 after rumors of infidelity over their 4 year marriage.

Prior to Walker, LeToya briefly married Rob Hill, Sr. Their childless union hit the rocks after only 2 months.

Except for a few blind dates here and there, LeToya, 41, is a single mom focusing on her children.

LeToya shared advice for married woman during the 2022 ESSENCE Festival of Culture.

She advised other celebrities to get ahead of infidelity rumors before the gossip hits social media.

Get ahead of the train," she said.

"Especially when you're going through things, like a divorce, anything might come out in the media. Have that conversation with them first before you allow media, or social media, or friends to tell their version. Because sometimes the friends can be more influential than you can because they have that kind of bond and that relationship."


LeToya (far right) is best known as one of the founding members of the original Destiny's Child singing quartet alongside (L-R): Kelly Rowland, LaTavia Roberson and Beyonce.

Destiny's Child rose to fame following the release of their hit singles "No, No, No", "Bills, Bills, Bills" and "Say My Name" in 1999.

R. Kelly's ex-wife Drea Kelly and daughter Buku Abi stopped by the Ryan Cameron Uncensored radio show on Majic ATL last week.

Drea Kelly told host Ryan Cameron that she once considered jumping off a balcony.

"That was a really dark time, because at that time, I had three small children. One of them was still an arm baby... So you have to be at your lowest low and it has to be the darkest part of your life as a mother when you are willing to say 'I don't wanna do this thing called life anymore' and leave your three babies behind. That's a dark place to be."

She added: "Thank God that wasn't the end for me. So now when I live my life, I live it to the fullest."

Drea told Ryan that her three children are fiercely protective of her.

Drea and Robert Kelly are parents to Joann, Jaah Kelly, and Robert Kelly.

Buku Abi (right), born Joann Kelly, said she's struggling to get her music career off the ground. She told Ryan she has lost recording deals because of her father's reputation.

"Simply based off of my last name. I think for me especially 'cause a lot of people don't know, music is my first passion. I love music. I'm a singer, songwriter, I love music, and I been doing music since I was 13 years old."


"That's the first time I ever wrote a song was at 13, and from 13 up until 24 I've been trying to get into the music business," said Buku Abi, pictured left with Drea.

"Trying to get into the industry and all those years it's either been you're getting it because of who your dad is or you not getting it because of who your dad is. I've been this close to a record deal and when they found out who I was it got swiped away... the paperwork was drawn up and everything. Flew out to L.A., and everything. [Somebody] found out who I was, and that was it."

Oprah Winfrey is losing her Midas touch. "Midas touch" is an English phrase that means a person who has the unique ability to make money from anything they touch.

American pop singer Britney Spears says she turned down "lots of money" for an exclusive interview with Oprah, and others.

On Monday, the pop star tweeted — then deleted — a link to a 22-minute audio file on YouTube, according to Yahoo! News.

Kevin Winter/Getty Images

In the audio, Britney described what life was like living under her father, Jamie Spears' conservatorship for all those years. A judge dissolved the conservatorship in 2021, giving Britney control over her own life.

She also discussed Oprah reaching out to her with an offer for "lots and lots of money."

"I get nothing out of sharing all of this," she said.

"I have offers to interview with Oprah and so many people, lots and lots of money, but it's insane. I don't want any of it. For me, it's beyond a sit-down, proper interview."

Vivien Killilea/Getty Images

She continued:

"I've had tons of opportunities — Oprah, interviews — to go on a platform and share the hardships and just really anything that's going on in my mind. I really don't think any of that is relevant, getting paid to tell your story. I feel like it's kind of silly."

Britney remembered the harrowing moment when her conservatorship began 25 years ago.

"There was a SWAT team in my home," she said.

"Three helicopters. I remember my mom's best friend, and my two girlfriends, we had a sleepover the night before. They held me down on a gurney. Again, none of it made sense."

James Devaney/WireImage

Prior to the police intrusion in her home, Britney played cat and mouse games with the paparazzi who pursued her everywhere. Then the infamous photos surfaced of her head shaven bald.

The rest, as they say, is history.

"Literally, the extent of my 'madness' was playing chase with paparazzi, which is still to this day one of the most fun things I ever did about being famous," she recalled. "I don't know what was so harmful about that."

She continued:

"I remember my mom was sitting on the couch, and she said, 'We heard people are coming here today to talk to you. We should probably go to a hotel or something.' I never really understood what she meant. I didn't believe her. Like, is a lawyer coming here? Who is coming here? Four hours later, there were over 200 paparazzi outside my house video-taping me through a window of an ambulance, holding me down on a gurney."

Britney said that was when she realized she had been set up.

"I know now it was all premeditated. A woman introduced the idea [of a conservatorship] to my dad, and my mom actually helped him follow through and made it all happen. It was all basically set up. There was no drugs in my system, no alcohol, nothing."

Teyana Taylor defended her practice of sharing women with her husband, Iman Shumpert.

During the "Bumble Presents Luv2SeeIt with Teyana Taylor," web series, the mom-of-two told singer Jidenna that her open marriage works because she and Iman communicate well.

Teyana says agreeing to threesomes with her husband doesn't mean a woman is "trying to keep her man."

"You'll be surprised how the woman initiates a lot of stuff," she said.

James Devaney/GC Images

"Put some respect on a woman's swag. I feel like it's always like, they're trying to take that away from a woman to feel like, 'Oh, you doing it because that's what he wants.' And it's like... actually, I run this sh*t."

Teyana said they haven't had a threesome in a while due to their busy schedules and raising their two daughters.

She says communication is the key to avoid resentment in their marriage.

Kim Kardashian is diving back into the dating pool after her recent break up with Pete Davidson.

Kardashian, 41, broke up with Davidson, 28, in early August after dating for less than a year.

Now that she's back on the market, she's hoping to meet a few eligible bachelors, according to reports.


Kardashian's rep said the single mom is ready to date again but she's not rushing into another commitment. She would rather play the field and date a plethora of men while she's still young and flexible.


Kardashian's rep says Kim knows her last relationship was Dopamine-fueled, and not based on love.


"Kim is single and ready to mingle," said her rep.

"She does not want to get locked into anything right now. Her feelings for Pete were so strong but she knows now that it was lust that she was driven by and not love. Love takes time and right now Kim doesn't have the time to invest in anything serious. So, while she focuses on her billion-dollar empire, including the launching of her new ear pods brand, she is going to have fun. If this includes going on dates, so be it. But she is way too involved with her family and focused on herself right now to give away too much of this to anyone else."

If you're a high value man who earns at least 7 figures annually, slide into Kim's DMs and introduce yourself. Be patient, you might have to wait for a while for a reply.

First Lady Jill Biden tested positive for Covid-19 again, her spokeswoman confirmed Wednesday.

"After testing negative on Tuesday, just now, the first lady has tested positive for COVID-19 by antigen testing," Elizabeth Alexander said in a statement. "This represents a 'rebound' positivity."

Jill Biden, who is double vaccinated and twice boosted, experienced mild flu-like symptoms. She was prescribed Paxlovid and isolated at a private home on Kiawah Island, S.C., where she and President Joe Biden were vacationing.

According to Yahoo! News, Biden traveled to Rehoboth Beach, Del., on Sunday, where she is isolating again.

Alexander said the first lady had no reemergence of symptoms.

President Biden continues to test negative after twice testing positive for the coronavirus recently.

A UK study of vaccinated people who repeatedly contract Covid infections found that they could continue to be infected up to 8 times or more.

The mRNA vaccines were designed to prevent transmission of the virus by stimulating their immune systems to build immunity to the virus.

However, the UK study participants were unable to fight off COVID infections even after multiple vaccinations.

In January, CDC director Rochelle Walensky said the vaccines can't prevent transmission of the virus anymore.

Instead, Walensky said the vaccines prevent serious illness or death.

"Our vaccines are working exceptionally well. They continue to work well for Delta with regard to severe illness and death. They prevent it. What they can't do anymore is prevent transmission."

The UK study participants say they are grateful for the vaccines, which they believe will continue to protect them when they are infected with COVID again.

They are wary of isolating each time they are infected with COVID. But they said they have a social responsibility to avoid passing on the virus to others.

"When I do hear people, even like Puff saying, 'You know R&B is dead.' He sounds nuts to me. It sounds, it sounds, it sounds crazy," said Usher.

"You know, especially knowing he was a pioneer in understanding and beneficiary of it. You know, the source that is R&B created the breath of life that was breathed into hip-hop. It wouldn't be. There would be no hip-hop if there were not R&B, so it's blasphemous to hear me say, to hear people say anything, especially hip-hop cats, to say anything about R&B."

Usher added: "That's what R&B is. R&B is timeless, it ain't gonna go away."


Larsa Pippen is learning the hard way that being a cougar is not so appealing to young rich single men.

It's a known fact that younger men love cougars - women of a certain age who can take care of them financially.

However, Pippen doesn't want a broke young man. She wants a rich young man like her ex-husband, Scottie Pippen used to be.

The former "Real Housewives of Miami" cast member is best known for marrying ex-NBA star Scottie Pippen. They share four children, Scotty Jr., 21, Sophia, 13, Justin, 17, and 19-year-old Preston.

After divorcing Scottie in 2016, Larsa discovered dating wasn't as easy as she thought it would be. Young rich athletes weren't lining up to date her.

After running through NBA guard Malik Beasley and promiscuous rapper Future Hendrix in quick succession, Larsa, 48, finds herself single and yearning for love with a younger wealthy man.

"I feel like I am kind of mentally in a place of, like, I was married to a really famous guy that was really cute, that had a good body that was really successful that gave me four gorgeous kids," she told Fadeway World in an interview. "So, where the hell are you gonna find a guy that can like, fill in — it doesn't have to be all of those, but like, a few of those boxes."


Larsa, pictured with her son, Preston, on a shopping spree, continued:

"It's kind of hard. I thought it was going to be easier, to be honest with you. Once I started dating, I'm like — I'm gonna have to come to the realization that I'm not gonna get it all. I had a great run. I had a great relationship. You know, I was married for 23 years."

Larsa has apparently gone under the knife to keep her face and body young and tight to attract a younger man.

According to BSO, ever since Larsa's son, Scotty Jr. signed a two-way contract with the Los Angeles Lakers, she has been dropping thirst traps on Instagram.

Backgrid / BACKGRID

Larsa makes no secret that she is desperate to land one of her son's teammates.

Via BSO -- "Even though she is celebrating her 48th birthday, that didn't stop her from being half-naked on Instagram for all of Scotty Jr's summer league teammates to see.

Larsa has made it clear she has no issues sleeping with men and their athletes in their early 20s, so don't be shocked if she shows up at a Lakers game with a young tender on her arm."


Larsa is pictured with her son Preston during a night out partying at Delilah in West Hollywood.

"Im happy that my meet and greets are starting to inspire artist to actually give a f**k about their fans," Brown wrote on Instagram. "I didn't invent the wheel or meet and greets but I damn sure set the tone. Team Breezy."

But there's one subject that Brown is still sore about: awards shows banning him from performing more than a decade after he assaulted ex-girlfriend Rihanna.

The "WE" singer took to social media over the weekend to complain that BET hasn't invited him to perform at their award shows.

"You see the people? Every show is packed like this," he said.

"If it wasn't for my incredible fans, I would've been quit. I don’t like the fake celebrity S**T. Awards show haven't let me perform in years... yet my shows STILL SELL OUT. Let me be great."
