Vivica A. Fox offered some sisterly advice to Khloe Kardashian during an episode of Cocktails With Queens.

The 56-year-old actress shared her opinion of Khloe's one-sided relationship with serial cheater Tristan Thompson.

"It's time for Khloe to stop being a damn doormat for Tristan," Vivica said.

Vivica urged Khloe to have some self-respect and stop chasing Tristan.

"First of all, you are a Kardashian, girl. I'm sure it's plenty of brothers lining up. They all just wanna take a trip, you know what I mean. At this point, do you really want this kind of man to be a parental father figure to your children? The fact that he can't even respect mama? What foundation are you on, period?"

Tristan, 30, has struggled to be a faithful ex-husband to Khloe, 36, with whom he shares a daughter, True Thompson, 3.

He reportedly sent a cease-and-desist to model Sydney Chase, 23, who claims she had a steamy sex session with him in January.

Sydney won't stop talking about her fling with Tristan. She reportedly said Tristan told her he's just not that into Khloe, who has had extensive plastic surgery to appeal to men.

The Boston Celtics star also sent a cease-and-desist to Adam John Grandmaison, host of the "No Jumper" podcast, where Sydney first revealed her fling with the promiscuous ball player.

Grandmaison told Page Six on Tuesday that he erased the podcast video after consulting with his attorney.

"Yeah, we got a cease-and-desist and deleted it. Honestly, I wouldn't have posted it in the first place if I knew it was going to mess up a relationship."

The cease-and-desist, obtained by Page Six, states that Sydney (pictured) made "numerous false and defamatory statements” about Tristan on the podcast.

"You recklessly allowed Ms. Chase to make outlandish false statements about my client on the podcast without seeking to verify her claims in any way," the letter states.

Now that Kanye West is on the brink of divorce from socialite Kim Kardashian, men are crawling out of the woodwork trying to claim him.

TikTok personality Cole Carrigan, who claimed Kanye arranged a hotel hookup with him, is now backtracking.

Page Six reported on Friday that Cole, a makeup artist by trade with over 350,000 followers, claimed Kanye's former bodyguard, Steve Stanulis, arranged a hotel rendezvous with Kanye at a W Hotel in November.

But Cole backtracked after he received a cease-and-desist from Stanulis's lawyer, who slammed Cole's allegations as "completely and entirely false."

The attorney added that Stanulis, "denies, in the strongest terms, all of these false and defamatory statements," and said Stanulis had never heard of Cole.

On Sunday, Cole posted a video in which he apologized to Kanye and Kim for making up a story about them for 'likes' and 'follows'. He claimed he manufactured the story because Kanye "voted for Trump."

Noting that lawsuits are very expensive to defend, Cole said:

"In order to for me to stay out of court and not get sued, I have to issue an apology to Mr. West and Kim Kardashian West. So hi, Kim, if you're watching this, I am so sorry, I honestly did this for the simple fact that your husband voted for Trump, and we simply can't have that clownery in America, so you're welcome."

He added: "Second of all, I hope this doesn't ruin the chances of me getting on the KKW p.r. list, because I've been dying for those contour sticks."

KKW is Kim's makeup line.

Jay-Z was dumbfounded when it came to his attention that there were audio clips on YouTube that sounded like the aging rapper reciting "To be, or not to be," the opening line of a soliloquy from Shakespeare's play Hamlet.

The audio might have impressed the "Song Cry" rapper - if it was really was him reciting Shakespeare.

You've heard about the "deepfake" videos that alters photos and videos to look like celebrities or political figures. YouTube and Facebook are on a mission to take down all deep fake videos in the wild.

But, until now, deepfake audio wasn't a problem.

The technology uses text-to-speech software to computer-generate Jay-Z's speech patterns. Literally, someone typed the text of the soliloquy and used Jay-Z's speech patterns to make the audio.

If that sounds scary to you, imagine how it sounds to Jay-Z. Imagine if that software fell into the wrong hands.

Think of how easily a blogger could fool Jay-Z's wife, Beyonce, into believing he's cheating on her with Megan Thee Stallion.

Andrew Gillum, the disgraced former Democratic candidate for governor, has retained a high-powered criminal defense attorney to go after news outlets that published a photo of him lying in his own vomit.

According to police, Gillum, 40, and Travis Dyson, a known male escort, participated in a drug-fueled sex party during which Dyson overdosed in room 1107 at the Mondrian South Beach Hotel on March 13. Dyson, 30, was treated at a hospital and discharged.

Alex Spiro, who has ties to rappers Jay-Z and Meek Mill, fired off take-down letters to media outlets that published a photo of Gillum sprawled naked on the bathroom floor. The photo shows Gillum lying on a pillow and a towel that is covered in his vomit. Another towel under his lower torso is soiled with feces.

Spiro fired off a letter to The Floridian Press, a newspaper that published an article using the photo after the Central Florida Post obtained the image exclusively.

"To be clear, The public has no legitimate interest in any such photo, and its release appears to be based not on any such desire to shed light on an important public event, but rather to appeal to the prurient interests of certain members of the public. Moreover, this blatant attempt to damage the reputation of a devoted public servant seeking treatment in the midst of a national emergency and global health crisis is appalling and demonstrates an utter disregard of decency and the privacy rights of Mr. Gillum and his family. The article is a violation of Mr. Gillum's rights to privacy and must be promptly removed."

Out of compassion for Mr. Gillum's wife and their 3 minor children, Javier Monjarres, the publisher of the Floridian Press, complied with the request and removed the article and photo.

However, the Central Florida Post has made it clear that they will not remove the image, not only because Spiro's demands are "legally without merit," but because "Mr. Gillum is a public figure whose life is of considerable public interest."

"Despite Mr. Spiro's claims that the public has no legitimate interest in the photo, they clearly do. After our report, dozens of news outlets around the globe used our exclusive in their own commentary and Andrew Gillum began trending on Twitter."

The viral image has been turned into memes across multiple digital platforms.

Enrique Tarrio, who helped the Post obtain the photo, says he plans to resist any legal action by Spiro.

"[Gillum] was almost elected governor of Florida. If he had won, we would have had a sitting governor involved in a meth fueled gay sex orgy with a known male prostitute as we faced down the Wuhan flu pandemic. The public would have been placed at great risk and it is likely that people could have died due to delayed response times related to Mr. Gillum's needs to enter rehab. Mr. Gillum is not a dedicated public servant as his attorney claim. If he was a dedicated public servant he would have remained dedicated to his public image. That means not cheating on his wife, procuring male prostitutes, and engaging in meth fueled sex orgies while his young children were left home fatherless. Thank God that Florida was smart enough to elect a true leader like Ron DeSantis."

The Central Florida Post has filed an open records request with the Miami Beach Police Department under the Freedom of Information Act (FIOA) for "unredacted" police bodycam footage of Gillum in the hotel room.

Gillum apologized to his wife, R. Jai Gillum, friends and supporters before announcing his plan to enter an alcohol rehabilitation facility. It is unclear if he actually entered rehab.

"This man could have been our governor and a phony rehab stint is clearly a ploy for sympathy before re-entering the political arena," wrote Jacob Engels, an Orlando based journalist who owns the Central Florida Post.

Rihanna's ex-boyfriend, Hassan Jameel is scrubbing the Internet of all photos of them together.

Robert Littal, the founder of BlackSportsOnline blog and co-host of TMZ Sports, said Jameel contacted him through his attorney, asking him to take down a photo of him and Rihanna together.

"Rihanna's billionaire ex just hit me with a request to take down a pic of him and Riri that has been up since 2017," Littal tweeted on Tuesday. "A whole three years, I don't think he is taking the breakup well."

In response to a follower, Littal tweeted: "It was more of a threat than a request lol. I am not getting in legalish [sic] with a billionaire, got to know when to pick your battles."

Littal went on to say he was "honored" that Jameel reached out to threaten him with a lawsuit. "The story in question didn't even do numbers," he said, implying that no one cared about who Rihanna was dating.

Rihanna, who has a history of failed relationships with men, dated Jameel for nearly three years - a personal record for her.

She previously dated Chris Brown, Drake, Travis Scott, and A$AP Rocky. She is rumored to have reunited with Rocky after he returned from a concert tour Sweden.
