Are you a guy who is tired of women giggling at your attempts to grow a beard? Yung Joc has an inexpensive solution to his beard woes.

Yung Joc, born Jasiel Robinson, is a former rapper best known for his viral hit song "It's Goin' Down".

Joc struggled for years to grow a beard naturally. He recently debuted his fake beard courtesy of spray-on fibers.

The radio personality debuted his new look on Wednesday. He demonstrated the revolutionary process on his radio show and livestream.

The process involves spraying tiny black fibers that form a natural-looking beard.

Joc's Streetz 94.5 radio co-hosts, including Mz Shyneka, were impressed by his instant swag.

Joc used electric clippers to shape up his new beard. If you make a mistake and take off too much beard, simply spray more fibers to fill it in.

Joc's followers were impressed, while others suggested he wash it all off.

The product is called Toppik or Xfusion. It is available at your favorite online shopping site.

Michael B. Jordan addressed speculation that his relationship with socialite Lori Harvey is a business transaction.

Rumors ran rampant that the hunky actor retained Lori's professional beard services to promote his public image as a heterosexual leading man.

But leaked photos of the couple on vacation just weren't convincing enough for many skeptics on social media.

Urban Dictionary defines a professional beard as: "Any opposite sex escort taken to an event in an effort to give a homosexual person the apperance of being out on a date with a person of the opposite sex."

Men's Health magazine linked up with the 34-year-old actor in St. Barts where he posed for celebrity photographer Leonardo Volcy for an April 2021 cover story.

Jordan expressed his anger and frustration at the scurrilous gossip that he and Lori are just business associates.

"People are always going to have their opinions about me," he said.

"People can make up something completely false that has no f**king substance or anything, and there's going to be 100,000 people that are going to believe it, and that's going to be their opinion of me. I can't do anything about that, and I've just got to accept that and keep moving in my purpose."

Jordan added:

"People that know me know my heart. But people that know me for my work know what I allow them to know. The fact that I’ve been so closed off about a lot of parts of my life was a personal choice. As I’ve gotten older and a little more mature and comfortable in my own skin, I’ve become less concerned about it."

Michael B. Jordan is over the rumors and innuendoes surrounding his contract relationship with professional beard Lori Harvey.

The 33-year-old 'Black Panther' star, who is normally private, has been seen everywhere with Lori, 24.

The plethora of vacation photos prompted speculation that the photos are staged to improve Michael's reputation as a heterosexual leading man.

The couple was seen jet skiing in St. Barts where they celebrated Lori's birthday. And they spent the New Year together in Aspen, Colorado.

A source exclusively tells HollywoodLife why Michael has been so open with his relationship with Lori all of a sudden.

"Michael is definitely crushing hard on Lori and is loving all the time and special moments they’ve been sharing together," the source says, "but at the same time, he's always been private about his personal life and so it was a big deal for him to publicly share how he felt about Lori on social media."

But fans are not convinced. They say the chemistry between Michael and Lori is virtually non-existent.

The source also said the actor won't share every moment of his and Lori's relationship anymore.

"Even though Michael seems to have opened up quite a bit by going public with their romance and allowing fans to get a glimpse inside their personal lives, that doesn't mean he wants to share every moment between them or that he's going to be posting about their relationship all the time now."

"He's not a model or an influencer like Lori," explained the source. "He doesn't feel the need to share everything on social media. That's just not who he is, but at the same time he completely supports Lori and don’t be surprised to see him pop up with flirty comments whenever she posts."

Another source claims Michael extended his business contract with Lori, who has dated other effeminate celebrity males in the past, including media mogul Sean "Puffy" Combs, 51, and bisexual rapper Future Hendrix, 37.

Rumors are running rampant that Michael B. Jordan paid Atlanta socialite Lori Harvey for discrete beard services.

These rumors have cropped up about Lori before. Lori's beard services are legendary. The 24-year-old has a history of briefly dating effeminate rappers, music moguls, and pro athletes.

Rumors have plagued Jordan for his entire career. Then there's this from a young man on TikTok:

Internet sleuths claim the paparazzi is paid to leak photos of Jordan, 33, and Lori to the Instagram blogs to improve his public image -- particularly among Black women who despise him for certain comments he made back in the day.

The sleuths also point to Jordan's body language in the photos as proof that he is not that into her.

They're saying the couple is going overboard with all the trips, vacation photos and public displays of affection. It all looks absolutely staged, they say.

But, according to the actor's rep, there is no deception or beard services: just a young couple that is really in love.

The rep told HollywoodLife that the paparazzi pictures do seem a bit excessive, but "Love is in the air."

"No one should anticipate an engagement between Lori and Michael this year, although it would not be a bad thing. But, they are enjoying being a couple, traveling and celebrating birthdays together. Things are really positive between them both and they have a really deep connection. They both respect each other’s work ethic as well. Michael would like more privacy and will not be talking about his relationship much or at all, but to say it’s going well would be a drastic understatement. Love is definitely in the air for them both."

Future Hendrix gifted his new girlfriend with a pair of diamond earrings after his ex-girlfriend Lori Harvey was spotted in Atlanta with Michael B. Jordan.

Future, who has 4-5 children with as many women, is dating Dess Dior this month. The rapper, who goes through women like a box of Kleenex, took to his Instagram stories to show off the new gems he bought Dior.

But enough about them. What's the story with industry trampoline Lori and People's Sexiest Man Alive, Michael?

First of all, no one believes they are a genuine couple. Even if a sex tape leaked, no one would believe it.

Lori has a colorful dating history that includes more than one high-profile down low celebrity. And Michael's dating history is a mystery.

Which leads some to believe that Lori is getting paid to be Michael's high-dollar beard.

It isn't difficult to believe Lori is pretending to date men who want their bedroom secrets to remain just that - a secret. But is she hustling backwards?

Lori is still young (23), so she has another decade or so before her looks start to fade and she loses her value as professional beard to some of entertainment's elite down low males.

Rosario Dawson says she's "in love" with long shot presidential candidate Cory Booker. The 40-year-old actress and the New Jersey senator opened up about their relationship to The Washington Post.

"I'm in love! I am absolutely in love, and it is so exciting," Dawson gushed.

"Look, both of us, you know, we've had relationships," Booker added, "but I'm not sure if I've ever fully given myself over to a relationship as much as I have with her and allowed myself to be as vulnerable."

Despite their declarations of love, Twitter users remained unconvinced that they are a heterosexual couple. Many insist Dawson is Booker's beard.

The slang "beard" is defined loosely as someone of the opposite sex who is hired or volunteers to help a homosexual pretend to be heterosexual.

Booker, 50, has been hounded by homosexual rumors for over 2 decades.

As far as anyone can tell, he has never had a serious relationship with a biological female.

Which explains why the then 49-year-old politician described behaving like an awkward schoolboy when they bumped into each other at an event in 2018.

"I mean, gosh, that night we talked for hours and hours," he recalled. "I had trouble asking for her phone number... I think I said something really stupid like, 'Uh, how would I get in touch with you?' And she mercifully said something like, 'Oh, you want my phone number?' And my insides were like, 'Hell, yeah!'"

But Twitter users are quick to point out their awkward body language and other discrepancies.

"Rosario Dawson may never win an Oscar but she's a shoe in for [the] Best Beard Award.," wrote one Twitter user.

Another user tweeted, "Rosario Dawson is taking one for the team. Pretending to be Cory Booker's girlfriend. In old Hollywood these women were called Beards."

And a third user tweeted: "Rosario Dawson with Cory Booker is a publicity thing nothing more. Dare I say she's his beard. When the election is over they'll mysteriously "part ways"

But Booker is already dreaming of a wedding in the Rose Garden of the White House - if by some miracle he wins the Democratic nomination.

Tyga cheated on Kylie Jenner

If you recall, I posted a Blind Item about a washed up rapper and his predilection for lady boys.

Well, friend of the blog B. Scott has obtained a plethora of text messages exchanged between washed up rapper Tyga and a cross-dresser named Mia Isabella, who claimed to have a sexual relationship with Tyga for 3 years. The scuttlebutt is Tyga flew the transsexual out to California to be closer to him while he was with baby mama Blac Chyna and he continued to see the tranny after he met -- and apparently bedded -- socialite Kylie Jenner!
