Good friends are hard to come by. Rap producer Ye (left) is fortunate to have loyal friends who stand by him during troubling times.

Ye, formerly Kanye West, donned a black ski mask and met up with his pals, Fivio Foreign (2nd from left) and Pu$ha T (right) for lunch after taking a break from recording in Los Angeles.

He was also spotted with Von Dutch designer Tracey Mills (right).

Ye thanked rapper Travis Scott for sending him the address to his daughter Chicago West's 4th birthday party. "I just gotta shout out to Travis Scott for sending me the address and the time," he said in a video on Saturday.

The 44-year-old rapper and fashion mogul was upset that estranged wife, Kim Kardashian, didn't invite him to his youngest daughter's birthday party.

"Yo, I'm so happy right now," Ye says in the Instagram video.

"I just came from Chi's party and I just gotta shout out to Travis Scott for sending me the address and the time, and making sure that I was able to spend that birthday memory with my daughter to be there with the rest of the family."

Ye was annoyed that Kim barred him from her Calabasas home when he tried to visit his children last week.

Kim previously denied blocking her estranged husband from visiting her home or attending their daughter's birthday bash. In leaked video from the event, Ye is seen keeping a comfortable distance from Kim, while laughing it up with friends.

A source told Page Six that Kim was "saddened" by Ye's public statements, after she asked the musician not to show up "unannounced" to their home.

Kim may have been worried for boyfriend Pete Davidson's safety after Ye promised to attack him in his new track, titled "Eazy," which dropped Friday.

In other Ye news, the LAPD would like to speak to the father of four about an alleged assault that took place last week after a fan asked the rapper for an autograph.

Cardi B surprised husband Offset with a giant check for $2 million at his birthday party this week. Offset's 30th Sneaker Birthday Ball was held at Sneakertopia LA in Los Angeles.

After Offset made it rain stacks of cash on the crowd, Cardi surprised him with the massive check.

Apparently, Offset's income was disrupted by the pandemic, but Cardi -- the breadwinner of the family -- is making up for his loss in revenue.
 


 
Earlier this week, Cardi B and Offset had a falling out over how to dress their infant son.

In a video shared on her Instagram Stories, Cardi shows Offset a mini fedora for their only son.

But Offset disagreed with her fashion choice. "Hell nah," the Migos rapper said. "I'm not putting that s—t on my son, man ... Have my boy looking like Ne-Yo!"

Ne-Yo is a Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter who is not known for his masculinity.

Offset also balked when Cardi showed him a cute baby outfit featuring red pants, a button-down Oxford shirt and suspenders.

"Ain't this cute?" the mom-of-two asked.

"Hell the f**k no!" the frustrated father-of-5 responded.

"This is cute. This is cute," Cardi pressed on. But offset wasn't having it.

"Hell no! Man, bro, stop playing for real," Offset said, before adding that Cardi wanted to dress their son like Carlton Banks, the nerdish character played by actor Alfonso Ribeiro on '90s hit comedy TV series "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air."

ALEXJR / BACKGRID

Cardi gave birth to her first son on September 4, 2021. She has not yet revealed her son's name. The hip-hop couple also share 3-year-old daughter Kulture Kiari Cephus.

Offset also has two sons, Jordan and Kody, and a daughter, Kalea Marie, from previous relationships.

Tami, pictured right with Reginae, writes:

"I arrived at the skating rink and it was nicely decorated and curated by Dazzle Parties. With the neon colored decor, it really made the event pop. Cutout images of Reginae were displayed throughout the space. They also had a custom made guitar cake by Sassy Girl Pies and fun 360 photo booth for guests. I haven’t been on a pair of roller skates in a minute but I was an avid skater back in the day, it quickly came back to me lol.

"Later on a heavy metal band started playing and the guests gathered on the skating rink floor. Reginae made her entrance looking too cute with a black studded corset adorned with chains and patent leather platform boots! She killed her look and was in great spirits! She got on the mic and welcomed everyone and said she was ready to get her "roll on" and then rap group Shop Boyz appeared and performed their hit song, "Party Like A Rock Star"! Reginae rocked out to the song and everyone around her started to dance."

Once again, comedic actress Tiffany Haddish proves she can't hold her liquor. A friend assisted the stumbling drunk star to an Uber. Tiffany, who is dating rapper/actor Common, has previously said she wants to adopt a child. But adoption officials will likely take into considering her history of drinking and psychological problems.

Barack Obama's supporters are speaking out against him after he hosted his 60th birthday bash at his $14 million mansion during a pandemic.

New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd wrote a stinging opinion editorial slamming her former friend's birthday bash as an "orgy of the 1%."

Fashion critic André Leon Talley is also among Obama's allies who criticized the former president in the NY Times op-ed.

Talley compared Obama to infamous French queen Marie-Antoinette who once told starving citizens to eat cake.

"I think the nouveaux riches Obamas are seriously tone-deaf," said Talley.

"We all love Beyonce. But people have so many things to worry about with Covid, voting rights, climate warming. People are afraid of being evicted from their homes. And the Obamas are in Marie-Antoinette, tacky, let-them-eat-cake mode. They need to remember their humble roots."

Maureen Dowd stopped short of calling Obama a narcissist for hosting a party amid the surging coronavirus Delta variant:

"Barack Obama gave a big, lavish, new-money party at his sprawling mansion on the water because he wanted to seem cool. Being cool is important to him...

It’s hard to stop thinking about the over-the-top fete the former president held at his Martha’s Vineyard manse for his 60th birthday. It is such a perfect taxonomy of the Obama arc."

The birthday girl showed out in a Louis Vuitton-inspired mini skirt and spaghetti-string crop top with platform Louis Vuitton sandals. Saweetie, who was born after the Freaknik glory days, was accompanied by her two aunties who provided consulting services about twerking on top of cars down Peachtree Street.

The "Icy Girl" rapper wore bejeweled "Benjamins" rollers in a loose bun atop her head, similar to the style worn by Atlanta freaks and out-of-towners during the original Freaknik street party in Georgia. Freaknik was banned in the 1990s by the Atlanta mayor for tying up traffic on Peachtree and disrupting at least one wedding downtown.

The hip-hop star completed her look with icy diamond pendants and iced out loop earrings, and a white Louis Vuitton handbag.

Guests, including aspiring actress Karrueche Tran, were encouraged to wear 1990s styled fashions. Karrueche complied with the dress code by wearing a bandana-print outfit, complete with an impossibly short mini skirt and a crop top with matching jacket.

A 6-year-old Chicago boy wanted rapper King Von to host his birthday bash. But he's dead, so the boy's mom did the next best thing.

She mounted a life-size picture of the rapper on a cardboard stand up. Then she dressed the birthday boy just like his idol in a white tee and black shorts with a faux diamond pendant.

The boy's birthday cake featured a similar photo of the late rapper wearing a white Furberry t-shirt and black pants.

King Von was gunned down during a fistfight outside an Atlanta lounge last year.

The little boy, named Daundrea, is seen flashing a gang sign in a photo next to Von's cardboard standup -- just like his idol.

The Internet comments were brutal.

One Reddit.com user wrote: "Rest In Peace Von but damn hope that kid don't go towards that life."

Another user wrote: "this is honestly some of the dumbest sh-t I've seen in a long time he shouldn't even know who von is."

And a third wrote, "This is lack of having a dad."

Question: Would you let your 6-year-old listen to drill/trap music?

CNN wrote a scathing article, attacking Lil Wayne's daughter, Reginae Carter for hosting a maskless birthday bash at a nightclub in Atlanta over the weekend.

At the start of the Corona pandemic in the U.S. in January, Black people believed we were protected from Covid-19 because we don't have the ACE2 enzyme which the virus needs to enter human cells.

Then the left-wing media began reporting that Black people were "twice as likely" to die from Covid than any other race.

Black people never stopped partying during the pandemic -- because they don't see a body count. They party with their friends every weekend. No one they know has died or even fallen ill.

The parties continued during lockdowns. All summer long, nightclubs in wide open Atlanta were packed to the rafters with maskless partygoers enjoying their young lives.

So why did CNN's reporters attack Reginae for celebrating her birthday with her friends, when the city of Atlanta -- where CNN headquarters is based -- has been wide open all summer?

CNN writers Jamiel Lynch, who is Black, and Amanda Jackson, who is white, even quoted the mayor's office in their article: "The Mayor's advisory mask mandate and orders on gathering remain in effect... However, State Orders -- which supersede decisions made at the local level -- currently allow bars and venues to remain open," said a spokesperson for Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms.

The invitations have gone out for rapper Future Hendrix's private all-black birthday party. Atlanta's power couple - Future and Lori Harvey - are expected to make their public debut tonight.

The Atlanta-based auto tune rapper celebrates his 36th birthday at an undisclosed location tonight, Nov. 20. The couple sparked rumors after they were spotted at Teyana Taylor's concert in Atlanta on Thursday, Nov. 14.

Future and Lori were seen kissing and cuddling backstage, sources told theJasmineBRAND blog.

Future's security was tight that night, so no pictures were allowed backstage.

Steve Harvey's stepdaughter made headlines when she was spotted on rap mogul Sean Combs' arm. Lori and Combs denied they were dating - and, as it turns out, they weren't lying.

Lori finally got tired of seeing Combs' flirting with other young women. She unfollowed him on social media.

But sources say sparks flew when Lori met Future. The rapper has seven children by as many women, including Seattle homemaker Ciara Wilson. Don't be surprised if Lori falls pregnant with Future's 8th seed.

R&B singer Ciara Wilson, who turned 34 last week, celebrated her dad Carlton Harris's 58th birthday with a dinner party on Monday, Oct. 28.

The proud singer posted a video of the happy occasion on her Instagram stories on Monday. "58 is a great date," she said before telling her father "I love you," and giving him a peck on the cheek.

Carlton is a very supportive father who looked after his grandson, Future Zahir Wilburn, when the boy's father, rapper Future, was busy chasing skirts. Little Future now has another stable father figure in his life, Ciara's first husband, NFL quarterback Russell Wilson.

Although Carlton was a loving father to his only daughter, he wasn't a faithful husband to his long-suffering wife, Jackie Harris (pictured right). Rumor has it that he cheated on his wife repeatedly. His infidelities led Jackie to file paperwork to end their marriage. But they remain good friends.

For that reason Ciara had a difficult time finding a stable mate because she consistently pursued the wrong, emotionally unavailable men who reminded her of her cheating father.

Happy birthday, Carlton! And we hope you celebrate many more!
