Tyrese Gibson apologized to former roommate Kim Kardashian after using her name for click bait in a recent video.

According to Snitch, Tyrese dropped Kim's name in a video about his bitter divorce from Samantha Lee Gibson, the mother of his four-year-old daughter, Soraya Gibson.

Kim's name was on the screen in a caption claiming Tyrese contemplated suicide when they lived together as roommates.

Black Twitter dragged Tyrese for using Kim's name for click bait.

In a new video post, the singer/actor apologized to Kim. He claimed the video caption cut off causing the caption to be taken out of context.

Tyrese, 43, still feels some kind of way after a judge ordered him to pay Samantha $10,690 a month for child support.

Tyrese and Samantha tied the knot in 2017 after they met through a mutual friend in 2016.

In January 2021, Samantha said she did "everything" she could do to save her marriage. She accused her husband of changing the locks at their Buckhead Atlanta home, forcing her and their daughter to move.

Tiffany Haddish took to Instagram to say she "deeply" regrets exploiting two minor children in inappropriate comedy sketches.

Haddish and fellow stand-up comic Aries Spears are named in a lawsuit filed by a 22-year-old woman on behalf of her minor brother.

The lawsuit stated the two siblings were exploited by Haddish and Spears in "comedy skits" that subjected the children to inappropriate adult situations in 2013 and 2014.

Haddish and Spears allegedly preyed upon the children of a friend of Haddish's — a single mom who did not accompany her children to the video shoots. The mother later said she thought Haddish was a friend and she trusted her with the children.

Haddish, 42, finally apologized after one of the videos went viral last week. The video, titled "Through A Pedophile's Eyes," features Haddish as a single mom who leaves her 7-year-old son with her pedophile brother who molests the child.

The lawsuit stated the boy was subjected to even worse abuse off camera.

In most of the scenes, the boy is clad only in his underwear, according to the lawsuit.

"I know people have a bunch of questions. I get it. I'm right there with you," Haddish wrote in an IG post on Monday.

"Unfortunately, because there is an ongoing legal case, there's very little that I can say right now. But, clearly, while the sketch was intended to be comedic, it wasn't funny at all — and I deeply regret having agreed to act in it," the comedian and "Girls Trip" actor added. "I really look forward to being able to share a lot more about this situation as soon as I can."

Haddish's attorney, Andrew Brettler, initially called the lawsuit a "shakedown", "frivolous" and "bogus".

"[The plaintiff's mother] has been trying to assert these bogus claims against Ms. Haddish for several years... Now, [the mother] has her adult daughter representing herself in this lawsuit. The two of them will together face the consequences of pursuing this frivolous action."

The lawsuit was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court last Tuesday by a woman identified as Jane Doe on behalf of her minor brother John Doe, now 15. Jane Doe is John's legal guardian.

Debra Opri, an attorney for Spears, said the comedian "isn't going to fall for any shakedown."

Spears, 47, settled a lawsuit with the mother over the video in 2019. But Haddish refused to settle. The settlement reportedly was not split with the children.

The settlement does not bind Jane or John from pursuing legal action against Haddish.

Will Smith apologized again to comedian Chris Rock for slapping him during the 2022 Academy Awards at the Dolby Theatre on March 27.

"I've reached out to Chris and the message that came back is that he's not ready to talk when he is, he will reach out. So I will say to you, Chris, I apologize to you. My behavior was unacceptable and I'm here whenever you're ready to talk."

He also apologized to Rock's mother and his younger brother Tony Rock.

Smith, 53, said he now he realizes how many people he hurt after the unprovoked attack on Rock.

Smith apologized to his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, whom he claimed to be defending when he stormed onstage and slapped the 57-year-old comedian for joking about Jada's bald head.

"I spent the last three months replaying and understanding the nuances and the complexities of what happened in that moment. I'm not going to try to unpack all of that right now but I can say to all of you, there is no part of me that thinks that was the right way to behave in that moment. There is no part of me that thinks that's the optimal way to handle a feeling of disrespect or insults."

Smith's career was derailed by The Slap and he was dropped by his agent.

Colleagues and friends have since distanced themselves from Smith.

"I'm human and I made a mistake and I'm trying not to think of myself as a piece of s**t," he said.

"I would say to those people I know it was confusing, I know it was shocking, but I promise you I am deeply devoted and committed to putting light and love and joy into the world. And, you know, if you hang on I promise we'll be able to be friends again."

An Iowa weather station has apologized after a racial slur was aired during a local Weather Channel TV broadcast.

The graphic containing the n-word went viral on Twitter after it "accidentally" aired during the Des Moines-based Weather Channel's "Local on the 8s" segment Thursday.

"I've blurred it, but I'm pretty sure you can figure out what it said," tweeted journalist Matthew Keys.

The graphic read: "Hello Des Moines, This is your weather my N----s."

The reaction was swift on Twitter. However, the Weather Channel denies that the racial slur originated with the station.

"This did not originate with us, and we are in the process of investigating it further," a spokesperson told Keys, in a tweet.

One television news expert backed up Matthews that the mistake originated with TWC.

"TWC has computer units at cable headends to produce the local on the 8s, and a rogue cable employee must've messed with the files and caused it to say that," wrote one Twitter user.

TWC has since deleted the slur and apologized for the incident on Facebook.

"A graphic during the Weather Channel cable network's 'Local on the 8s' presentation in Des Moines last evening included a racial slur," the post read. "We removed this graphic as soon as we learned of it. This did not originate with us, and we are in the process of investigating it further. We apologize to our viewers."

Bryant criticized Samuels for insulting single women over 35 by calling them "leftovers."

"How can a man say that you are of low value after 35? How can a man say that you do not have the level of traction of a high-powered man when that man has got to get a GoFundMe for his funeral?"

Bryant issued an apology in a new sermon this past Sunday, Pastor Bryant apologized to Samuels' family, the community and his brothers in the Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity.

"An apology is only messed up if you match it with an excuse. An apology comes with ownership... When people hold you accountable that does not make them a hater. When people hold you accountable, that means they have an expectation...," he said.
 

Samuels' family has denied he died broke. However, others say Samuels portrayed himself as something he wasn't: a high-value man.

A woman posted a video on TikTok that shows Samuels rented a basement apartment in a home in 2021. He also parked his BMW on top of cardboard in the street outside the home to catch oil leaks.

Will Smith apologized to Chris Rock 24 hours after he stormed onstage at the Oscar Awards and slapped the comedian for joking about Jada Pinkett Smith's hair loss.

It isn't clear if Rock accepted the disgraced actor's apology.

But one person who didn't accept Smith's apology is Rock's brother, Tony Rock.

When a Twitter user asked Tony whether he accepted the apology, Tony replied, "No."

Blogger Jason Lee has apologized for reporting that England's Queen Elizabeth II was dead.

Lee, who runs Hollywood Unlocked Instagram blog, published an apology after deleting his posts about the Queen.

"Although I've never been wrong when breaking a story, because this involves The Queen, this is one time I would want to be. And based on Wednesday's report from the Palace, I can say my sources got this wrong and I sincerely apologize to The Queen and the Royal Family."

Lee apologized after Buckingham Palace announced the Queen, 95, had spoken with Britain's Prime Minister Boris Johnson in a weekly phone call on Wednesday, Feb. 23.

After becoming the laughing stock of Instagram, Lee doubled down, insisting he trusted his source.

However, Lee's "source" turned out to be a fan of the late Mark Lanegan, a member of Queens of Stone Age grunge band, who died on Feb. 22, at age 57. No cause of death was announced.

Lanagan's death was announced on social media, an hour before Lee posted his click-bait post about the British Monarch.

Lee claimed his "trusted source" told him the Queen had died after she failed to show up at a wedding. However, the Queen was not on the guest list and she did not know the bride or groom.

The triple vaccinated Queen tested positive for COVID, and was experiencing mild flu-like symptoms. She canceled virtual meetings while recovering at Windsor Castle.

Nelly has apologized for accidentally leaking a steamy sex tape which he claims is an old video.

The video shows the "Hot in Herre" rapper receiving oral sex from a young woman. Nelly claims the video is an old private clip that was never meant for public viewing.

The "Country Grammar" rapper started trending Tuesday on Twitter.com after the video appeared briefly on his Instagram story. The video was quickly deleted, but not before his followers saved it to their devices and made it go viral.

Nelly's team tells TMZ that he may have been hacked and they are concerned more of Nelly's private content may end up online — including financial information, personal documents and passwords.

The 47-year-old rapper, who was born Cornell Haynes Jr., is best known for his debut album Country Grammar, which is still his best-selling album to date.

The Grammy-award winning rapper is set to headline Sand Mountain Amphitheater's concert "Tacos and Tequila" on May 20. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday.

Festival organizers reportedly called an emergency meeting to discuss the sex tape. At issue is whether Nelly violated the decency clause of his contract.

DaBaby clapped back at "cry babies" during his first performance since his headline-grabbing homophobic outburst at the Rolling Loud music festival last month.

The 29-year-old rapper was humbled after NY radio station Hot 97 allowed him to perform at its Summer Jam festival at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey on Sunday, August 22.

A plethora of summer music festivals canceled the outspoken rapper's bookings after he uttered anti-HIV and anti-LGBT+ insults at Rolling Loud.

Before DaBaby took to the stage, a pre-recorded video was shown in which he thanked Hot 97 for letting him "to share my gift, share my blessing with y'all out here live on this stage amongst all the chaos and all the backlash."

Johnny Nunez/WireImage

"They accepted my sincerity and all my apologies when I said I never, ever meant to offend anybody or say anything to make anybody feel any type of way live on that stage a few weeks ago.

"Hot 97 was also willing to stick they neck out on the line, willing to go against all odds with everything going on out here in the world, and still allow me to come out here on this stage and utilize they platform to help the world move forward."

After DaBaby hit the stage, he took the opportunity to apologize once again to the LGBT+ community:

"I never in my life meant to offend anybody, you know, and I apologize... that ain't even how I rock.

"But check this out, other than the people that was truly offended, I feel like the rest of y'all motherf**kers are being cry babies."

His remarks neatly segued into "Cry Baby" - his hit collaboration with Megan Thee Stallion.
 

Steve Jennings/FilmMagic

Embattled rapper DaBaby apparently deleted his official apology to the LGBT+ community from his Instagram page.

The formal apology was posted to DaBaby's IG page last week -- before he was dropped from the Lollapalooza lineup and replaced with rapper Young Thug.

DaBaby was "canceled" after uttering anti-HIV and anti-LGBT+ comments during his set at Rolling Loud music festival in Miami last month.

He has since lost lucrative summer concert gigs including the Governors Ball, Parklife, Day N Vegas, ACL Fest, and the iHeartRadio Music Festival, among others.

On Friday, Aug. 6, it was announced singer Ne-Yo will replace DaBaby in the lineup at the Can't Wait Live concert scheduled for Friday, Aug. 13, in Philadelphia.

The 29-year-old rapper reportedly refused to meet with LGBT+ and HIV/AIDS groups to develop a comprehensive anti-stigma HIV and LGBT+ campaign.

GLAAD published an open letter to DaBaby on its website.

The organization asked DaBaby to "be a powerful and influential voice" within the Black community and to "become an agent of truth and change."

LGBT+ groups fear DaBaby, whose real name is Jonathan Kirk, has sabotaged their efforts to raise HIV awareness and decrease LGBT+ stigma in the Black community.

DaBaby refuses to apologize for a 4th time for his anti-HIV, homophobic rant at Rolling Loud festival last week.

The 29-year-old rapper paused his set at Rolling Loud in Miami, saying:

"If you didn't show up today with HIV, AIDS, or any of them deadly sexually transmitted diseases, that'll make you die in two to three weeks, then put your cellphone lighter up.

"Ladies, if your p**sy smell like water, put your cellphone lighter up. Fellas, if you ain't sucking d**k in the parking lot, put your cellphone lighter up."

DaBaby's second and third apologies were met with more outrage since he clearly was not remorseful.

He dug in his heels as A-list celebrities such as Elton John and Madonna dragged him.

Rich Fury/Getty Images

Then he was dropped from the upcoming Governors Ball and Lollapalooza.

As the intense outrage and fallout continued, DaBaby's publicist issued a formal apology on Monday for "hurtful" and "triggering" comments.

The lengthy apology included soothing, damage control language such as:

"Social media moves so fast that people want to demolish you before you even have the opportunity to grow, educate and learn from your mistakes. As a man who has had to make his own way from very difficult circumstances, having people I know publicly working against me — knowing that what I needed was education on these topics and guidance — has been challenging."

However, the publicist's apology only made the rapper's critics declare that his publicist's apology is not accepted.

The comments were turned off on the Instagram post, but critics weighed in on Twitter.com.

Rapper DaBaby issued an official apology for his homophobic Rolling Loud festival rant in Miami, Florida on July 23.

In his official apology, the rapper admitted his comments were "insensitive" and disrespectful to the LGBT+ community and HIV/AIDS survivors.

The rapper upset gay rights activists with his speech about HIV and AIDS sufferers during his set.

"If you didn't show up today with HIV, AIDS, any of them deadly sexually transmitted diseases that'll make you die in two or three weeks, put your cellphone light in the air," he said.

He added, "Fellas, if you ain't suck a n**ga's d**k in the parking lot, put your cellphone lights in the air. Keep it f**king real."

His comments sparked major backlash online and in his bank accounts. His critics included his "Levitating" collaborator Dua Lipa, who said she was "surprised" and "horrified" at his comments.

DaBaby tweeted on Tuesday:

"Anybody who done ever been effected by AIDS/HIV y'all got the right to be upset, what I said was insensitive even though I have no intentions on offending anybody. So my apologies But the LGBT community... I ain't trippin on y'all, do you. y'all business is y'all business [sic]."

The 29-year-old Capricorn uttered the comments during his live set at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens on Sunday, July 25.

"If you didn't show up today with HIV, AIDS, any of them deadly sexually transmitted diseases that'll make you die in 2, 3 weeks, then put your cellphone light up.

"Ladies, if your pu$$y smell like water, put a cellphone light them up. Fellas, if you ain't sucking d**k in the parking lot put your cellphone light up. Keep it real."

Ghey Twitter lit up as users expressed their outrage when the video went viral last night.

HIV advocacy groups slammed the rap star for "spreading misinformation about HIV."

"It's wrong for people living with HIV to be made to feel lesser or excluded because of their diagnosis – it should be unacceptable in the musical industry and in society at large," said Richard Angell, campaigns director at the Terrence Higgins Trust.

He added:

"Comments like DaBaby's perpetuate HIV-related stigma and discrimination, as well as spreading misinformation about HIV.

"You can now live a long, healthy life with HIV thanks to medical progress when you're diagnosed and accessing treatment.

"That's why it's important to challenge anything that deters people from testing and learning the facts about HIV."
