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."

Lil Wayne and his on-again, off-again girlfriend Denise Bidot have apparently rekindled their romance and put the breakup rumors to rest. The two are following each other again on Instagram.

Blogger The Jasmine Brand reports the two are following each other after Denise abruptly dumped the "Lollipop" rapper for supporting President Donald Trump's re-election.

In her Instagram stories, a disappointed Bidot implied she split from the dreadlocked rapper over his political affiliations.

"Sometimes love just isn't enough," she wrote. They also unfollowed each other on Instagram. She was the only person Wayne followed until this past weekend when his follow count rolled back to zero.

A source said Denise was "shocked" when she saw Wayne posing with Trump in an official White House photo before the elections.

Blogger B. Scott also confirmed Denise broke up with Weezy and unfollowed him on Instagram.

The mom-of-one later deleted her Instagram, tweeting "Over it."

It came as no surprise this week when part-time ghostwriter Safaree Samuels announced he and his wife Erica Mena were back on the market.

Fans immediately smelled a PR stunt by two reality TV personalities desperate for attention amid the ongoing Covid-19 lockdowns.

They were correct. Safaree, 39, walked back his divorce announcement in less than 24 hours.

In a post on Instagram.com, Safaree wrote: "A man is nothing without his family. Im not a bachelor & I love my wife I would never disrespect the mother of my child or wife. Sorry for being childish & Salute to all the real men out there."

But that isn't the end of the story. There are persistent rumors about curvy Instagram models sliding into Safaree's DMs and renting space in Erica's head.

That could explain why Safaree walked back his announcement so quickly.

Erica, 32, previously dated former kiddie rapper Bow Wow, the late Cliff Dixon, NYC radio personality DJ Envy, and she had a brief emotional fling with socialite Cyn Santana.
 

Gucci Mane and his pregnant wife Keyshia Ka'oir are expecting a baby boy.

Keyshia surprised her Instagram followers in August, when she posted a photo of her small baby bump. The mother-of-three captioned the image: "I ain't athletic but on @laflare1017 D I did gymnastics."

The couple confirmed the sex of their baby by sharing pictures from their stunning gender reveal party on Monday, Nov. 2. The "Gucci Land” rapper, 40, and his life partner, 35, both dressed in baby blue to symbolize their unborn baby's gender.

Gucci wrote, "We got a lil baby boy on the way," while his wife added, "It's a Boy," in her own Instagram post.

Keyshia wore a sheer dress covered in blue feathers while her husband donned a suit in a matching color, with the pair posing for pictures in front of a wall made to look like lettered baby blocks.

Thanking their guests for the stacks of presents they received, including teddy bears and hampers, Keyshia added: "Thank u guys for all our beautiful gifts! Also my mom & husband for my GORGEOUS shower."

It's the first child for Gucci and Keyshia, who wed in 2017. Keyshia is the mother of a grown son and two grown daughters, while Gucci has a special needs son from a previous relationship.

Cardi B filed a motion to dismiss her petition for divorce from her cheating husband, Offset.

TMZ reports Cardi filed docs in Georgia to officially dismiss the divorce she set in motion back in September. Cardi was dragged on social media by fans who accused her of pulling a stunt.

Cardi took to social media recently to deny rumors that her divorce action was just a stunt to keep her relevant amid the coronavirus outbreak. She then deactivated her Twitter account.

She has up to 30 days after deactivation to restore her Twitter account or it will be deleted permanently.

According to TMZ, Cardi filed her dismissal "without prejudice" -- which is legal jargon for reserving the right to file the divorce again at a later date.

It's the second time she's changed her mind about leaving Offset. Although, she didn't actually file divorce papers the first time.

A judge still has to sign off on the dismissal to make it final -- for now.

Rapper C-Murder is giving hope to single mother Monica Arnold as she waits patiently for him to be released from prison.

Monica and her bestie Kim Kardashian-West are petitioning to get C-Murder, real name Corey Miller, out of prison.

The 49-year-old gangsta rapper was convicted in 2009 of the shooting death of a 16-year-old fan at a nightclub in Louisiana. Corey maintained his innocence but was found guilty and sentenced to life in prison.

Corey has a plethora of women waiting patiently for him to get out of prison.

According to Rhymeswithsnitch, Corey just let his harem know that Monica is his head concubine.

In a post on Instagram wishing Monica a happy 40th birthday, C-Murder told her this is the last birthday she will celebrate without him in her arms and that "you will get everything you deserve" once he's freed.

Isn't that romantic? No, Monica did not write that post herself.

Monica divorced former NBA star Shannon Brown after he grew tired of waiting at home for her to return from visiting Corey in prison.
