Claudia Jordan deleted her tweet and apologized after saying DMX had died. But reports have emerged that he is still on life support.

DMX is in a vegetative state in an intensive care unit in White Plains, NY, after suffering a heart attack following an apparent drug overdose.

According to reports, brain scans show very little brain activity. If that's the case, the rapper is no longer with us. But Jordan jumped the gun by tweeting out he is dead before the family acknowledged he was taken off life support.

"Rest in Paradise DMX," she wrote on Tuesday, April 6.

Maybe she knows something the public doesn't know? Still, it's common decency to wait until the family releases a statement acknowledging that he was taken off of life support.

Twitter was not having any of the disrespect toward a rap legend who is still above ground. Fans tore the former beauty queen a new one.

"Now look at you getting chewed up," tweeted one follower. Another follower added: "Chewed up like a dollar store steak."

Rapper Lil Nas X sparked controversy in the religious community with his new video "Montero (Call Me By My Name)."

The Queens admitted they were wrong to co-sign LNX as a role model for their children.

The 21-year-old rapper came under fire for appearing to worship the devil in his music video. In one scene, Lil Nas X kisses the devil and gives Lucifer a lap dance.

The Queens looked puzzled and befuddled. You could almost hear them asking, how could we have been so wrong?

"It's a lot for the kids that are watching," said host Claudia Jordan.

Co-host Syleena Johnson was the most conflicted of the Queens. She straddled the line between expressing support for the LGBT+ community and condemning the Satanic message in LNX's music video.

"Who are the people that are advising him?" Johnson asked. Who is over there saying this is good?"

According to Johnson, Lil Nas X's advisors could have given him better guidance and rejected his anti-religious symbolism.

"Black folk don't play when it come to the Lord," said actress Vivica A. Fox.

"I think that he just went too far," said co-host LisaRaye McCoy, whose granddaughter is a huge LNX fan.

"...[H]e's an artist and he just wanted that shock value, which is what he fed into," she said.

"I don't want my grandbaby seeing that at all now," she said. "I'm like no, and I'm afraid that when she goes to [play] his 'Old Town Road' video, that that one is gon' play next..."

Claudia Jordan (right) has vigorously denied reports that someone in her camp slept with comedian/actor Gary Owen (left).

A friend of the radio and TV personality is rumored to be the cause of Owen's split from his estranged wife, Kenya Duke.

Duke reportedly filed for divorce after 18 years of marriage and three children together.

In a post on Instagram.com, Duke alluded to someone in Jordan's camp being responsible for the demise of her marriage.

"I have all your info. I am going to deal with you in a minute, I am a little busy now. You can have him but you can't disrespect me and my kids in the process.

"Tried to be quiet out of respect for my kids but @claudiajordan has me on one this morning. 23 years together Gary didn't have s**t but a raggedy pick up and good credit, no place to live."

Duke was careful to say Jordan, 47, was not the home wrecker, which is plausible since Jordan isn't dark skinned enough for Owen.

Jordan, who was once married to film producer Datari Turner in 2009, has since responded to the rumors.

She said a mutual friend passed her number to Duke so the two ladies could talk it out in private.

"I'm really aggravated with you that you chose to go messy on a blog, when you could've reached out to me," Jordan reportedly said.

"The fact that I'm being dragged into this is stupid. And it's not true. I've reached out to friends of Kenya so we can talk woman to woman and not play this out in front of everybody... But I always want to keep it 100 with my people and tell the facts.

"Y'all love doing that to me. I've never been a mistress in my life. But that's a narrative that's easy to put on someone like me. So let me say for the 100th thousandth time, no. Nor do I approve of that. I guess the story is that I somehow – that he cheated and the woman is my friend. First of all, in my 20 years of knowing him, not one of my friends has ever told me or has ever implied that they messed with this man. Never.

"I don't approve of it. I'm not cool with it. If y'all wanna make me into this monster, that's on y'all. But, I'm a one man woman, and I don't condone that.

"You should probably talk to them about the reason for their divorce. And also know as adults, sometimes people break up y'all. And it's not as scandalous as you want it to be... Why don't you just let it play out? Or let it not play out, it's none of our business.

"I have absolutely nothing to do with it. I do not have a friend in Dallas or anywhere else that is this man's mistress. I don't know anyone woman that's his mistress. I don't know what y'all are talking about."

Claudia Jordan expressed concern for 13-year-old male-to-female transgender Zaya Wade after former B2K singer J Boog criticized Michelle Obama for praising Zaya.

"This is not cool, very demonic," said Boog (pictured). "Using this child for their new agenda. Take away the man - make the woman the new man - and no more reproduction."

Jordan, 47, responded to Boog's rant on her "Cocktails with Queens" web series, saying she shares Boog's sentiment that Zaya is being pushed to be an LGBT+ activist at a tender age.

"I think two things can be possible at the same time. I think the fact that — what Michelle Obama was doing was encouraging to a child. She was looking out for someone — an individual — and other kids that are like that."

The former beauty queen and Miss Teen USA (1990) added:

"On the other hand — I think some people are not properly articulating how uncomfortable they may feel about a child being pushed. They may think that child is being pushed to the front of the agenda — pushed to be the face of this. Now if Zaya is 1000% okay with that, then I'm all for it. It's really none of my business, but I feel like it's our job to talk about these things."

"I just hope that there are no regrets later on," she continued.

"I just want Zaya at the end of it to not feel and pressure. Like if Zaya ever felt like, 'You know what? I don’t feel this way anymore.' Does Zaya feel this uncomfortable, ridiculous amount of pressure to not be able to go back? Not saying that she wants to, but I just feel like [it’s] such a young age to have so much pressure on her shoulders."

Zaya, whose father is retired NBA player Dwyane Wade, came out as homosexual at age 11.

Ice Cube was a guest on "Cocktails With Queens" hosted by Claudia Jordan this week.

Ice Cube, real name O'Shea Jackson, explained why he declined to jump on a call with Democratic VP candidate Kamala Harris.

"I'm here for both administrations. I'm here to talk about the contract with Black America," he said.

He said he declined to participate in a Zoom call with Harris and 12 other celebrities because he spent a lot of time putting together his Contract with Black America. He added that the call with entertainers wouldn't be productive.

"I felt like our plan is so broad that you can't talk about it with twelve other people who had nothing to do with it," he said.

The rapper-turned-director said he was promised a call with Harris to discuss his CWBA, but he never received that call from her.

In previous statements, he said the Biden/Harris camp told him they would get back with him after the election.

Jackson said the Republicans were willing to speak to him about his CWBA.

He said he spoke with the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and they never got around to discussing his Contract with Black America.

Jackson complained about the 'Queens' hosts talking over him (particularly LisaRaye and Vivica A. Fox) who weren't listening to what he has to say.

LisaRaye McCoy is so real and says whatever is on her mind. But sometimes being real can lead to hurt feelings.

LisaRaye gave Da Brat a piece of her mind when the rapper surprised her for her birthday during an episode of Cocktails and Queens, hosted by Claudia Jordan.

The former First Lady of the Turks and Caicos Islands turned 53 last Wednesday. Jordan invited Da Brat to join the 'Queens' chat to surprise LisaRaye.

At first LR seemed surprised to see her half sister, as she broke down in tears. But then it came out that LR's feelings were hurt because Da Brat never picked up the phone to call her and wish her a happy birthday.

Things went left after Da Brat, 46, admitted that she and her big sister have been "a little bit distant" lately.

She continued, "I was going through a bunch of stuff. I haven't seen her or talked to her in a long time."

Da Brat, who refers to LR as "Punk", said, "You know how much I love you. You know how much you mean to me since I was a child..."

Keri Hilson was a fresh faced newcomer more than a decade ago when her record label told her to diss then-superstar Beyonce Knowles on a track.

In an interview with Claudia Jordan, Hilson recalled dissing Beyonce on her song "Turning M On" and how the fake beef hurt her spirit.

Hilson claims her label made her diss Beyonce, and she was too young and insecure to tell them no.

Prince Williams/ATLpics.net

Hilson, a 37-year-old Sagittarius, said she took a 9-year hiatus from music to heal herself due to clinical depression.

She said she contemplated quitting the business altogether. "I just knew I needed time to get back to myself."

Hilson said she was "incredibly" unhappy following the breakup of an 11-year relationship.

"I was 17 to 28 years old in that relationship, so I did not know life alone. I did not know and love and accept myself. I didn't know who the hell I was."

Vivica A. Fox seemed to confirm rumors that reality TV personality NeNe Leakes snorts cocaine when she's not in front of the cameras.

During an appearance on Fox Soul TV's Out Loud With Claudia Jordan, Vivica implied that NeNe dabs her nose with white powder.

Jordan mentioned that NeNe had recently spoken out about going to see a therapist.

"Baby, sometimes, I'm like, 'What is really going on?" Vivica said before adding, "I just wanted to know did you see a little, um um," Vivica said as she sniffed and swiped her fingers under her nose.

"'Cause I just thought it's a whole lot of adrenaline and stuff going on, so it must be another level of something."

"You mean when it gets sweaty right here?" Jordan asked Vivica, as she, too, swiped her fingers across her nose.

"Wait, she's getting therapy for mental [health] or consumption?" Vivica asked Jordan.

The ladies also discussed making Black people the face of COVID-19.

Rumors of NeNe's cocaine use has been a hot topic on the blogs. She was accused of powdering her nose by co-stars Kenya Moore and Cynthia Bailey.

NeNe's son's baby mama Symone Davis also put her on blast, saying NeNe has a coke problem.

Black Twitter is weighing in on Phaedra Parks' new boyfriend, actor Medina Islam, who will appear with her on the upcoming season of Marriage Boot Camp.

The hunky 35-year-old Virgo is best known for his role in Tyler Perry's The Haves and Have Nots.

For that reason, Black Twitter seems to think Medina goes both ways. They claim Tyler only hires ghey or bisexual actors as his leading men. But there is no evidence to support those allegations.

Medina is (or was) in a relationship with reality TV star and radio host Claudia Jordan.

Phaedra and Medina reportedly began dating a few months ago, after she broke up with ex-boyfriend DJ Tone Kapone. Many doubted Phaedra and Kapone were even a real couple.

Black Twitter says Phaedra and Medina are a made-for-tv couple. But it doesn't like she's paying him to play her man on TV.

Phaedra, 45, gushed over Medina in an interview with The Daily Mail in July.

"He's very smart, very intelligent. He's kind, we are both socially active. He's really sober and smart. He's a great father," Phaedra said of her current bae to DailyMail back in July. "So I'm excited about it."

Phaedra reportedly plans to move with her sons, Ayden, 9, and Dylan, 6, to Los Angeles to be closer to Medina.

In addition to acting, Medina is an artist and songwriter who released an album titled The Love that Hate Made. He is also a rap ghostwriter who penned Ludacris' hit single "Pimpin All Over the World."

Malik Yoba is making the rounds doing radio interviews after shocking his fans by coming out as a "heterosexual" man who is attracted to male to female (MtF) transgenders.

In an interview with Atlanta's V-103 Morning culture on Wednesday, Sept. 4, Yoba told host Big Tigger that he is not a homosexual because he is attracted to "all women".

WENN.com

In a separate radio interview with Claudia Jordan - host of The Morning Rush With Claudia on 105.7 in Dallas - Yoba took it a step further, saying, "I love women with breasts and penises."

During the same interview, Yoba, 55, denied paying a teenage transgender for sex 20 years ago. Both interviews are posted below.
