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.

"Definitely learning how to be authentically me, learning to be new, and following this invitation from the universe to step into this river of uncertainty," Lisa said. "We've eliminated all this extra noise, and now it's time to grow our roots deeper into our own values."

According to OK magazine, the couple split quietly in early 2021 and were living apart for months before announcing their amicable breakup.

"The last time that the two had been spotted was at the Tom Ford AW20 Show in February 2020. Since then, Momoa had been photographed spending large amounts of time hanging out with friends in his native Hawaii as he continued to film Aquaman 2. Bonet had reportedly not been spotted on set or in the paradise state at all."

"I can't say it was full-on from the moment we saw each other, but we have been together from the day we met," she told Porter magazine in 2018. "...In that moment, love came and it came big, and he did not run as I think a lot of men do. ... He basically picked me up and threw me over his shoulder, caveman style!"

The couple tied the knot in 2017. They share a son named Nakoa-Wolf Namakaeha, 13, and a daughter named Lola, 14.

Ryan Oubre wrote a lengthy Instagram post explaining why he divorced "Married at First Sight" star Clara Berghaus in July.

Oubre, who married flight attendant Clara on season 12, began his statement by saying he's "not here to debate anyone's feelings or emotions" and that "getting married to a stranger is indescribable."

While he stopped short of calling Berghaus a racist, Oubre suggested she was disrespectful of the Black culture.

"You can't truly be open to marry another race and not want to marry their culture (or at least at the minimum understand it)," he wrote, adding that the "Black experience and Black culture are not monolithic" and are "ever-evolving and ever-changing with time."

He added:

"What I can say is: walking into a family gathering and not speaking to anyone and scrolling through your phone will never fly and declining food (outside of a food allergy or avoidance) because you don't like the way it looks won't help either...

"by marrying into a different race/culture you inherently adopt parts of their identity" and "most importantly, your kids 100% will, and your kids will need you to help navigate it."

He wrote, "it's possible (all too often) to not be racist, while still being completely unaware" and that it is an "example of not understanding Black America."

Dr Dre escaped his failed marriage to Nicole Threatt Young with most of his fortune intact.

The mega producer is reportedly "delighted" that his ex-wife is only getting a fraction of his $800 million estate.

According to TMZ, Dre agreed to pay Nicole $100 million -- $50 million now, and $50 million a year from now.

The divorce settlement won't put a dent in Dre's estimated net worth of $820 million.

Apega/WENN.com

Nicole is reportedly upset that she didn't get half of Dre's total net worth. Fortunately for Dre, he had an ironclad prenup that she tried -- and failed -- to contest.

Dre gets to keep 7 of the properties they own, including a Malibu home, 2 homes in Calabasas, and 4 properties in the L.A. area, including the $100 million Brentwood estate.

In addition, Dre gets full rights to his master recordings, trademarks and interests in various partnerships and trusts. He also keeps all of their Apple stocks, which includes the proceeds from the sale of Beats by Dre.

In addition to 4 cars, she gets to keep jewelry, cash and bank accounts that she had maintained during the marriage.

Going forward, Nicole must pay her own legal fees. The final bill amounts to millions of dollars.

Sources tell TMZ that Nicole could have walked away with a bigger slice of Dre's empire had she settled a year ago. "She could have even been on the field for the Super Bowl halftime show as a friendly ex-wife," the source said.

The final settlement means Nicole will not get spousal support -- something she hotly contested during the bitter divorce.

Marital advice dished out by Steve Harvey years ago has resurfaced on TikTok. Steve's old advice takes on new meaning amid the news that religious power couple DeVon Franklin and Meagan Good are divorcing.

In a video from his old Facebook Watch series "Steve," Harvey advised women to start dating ugly men if they wanted to have a successful relationship.

"I want to tell you something, ladies," Harvey said, "I recommend to all of you get yourself a ugly man. It will be the best decision you've ever made."

He listed the attributes of unattractive men that make them more desirable over the DeVon Franklins of the world.

"They are reliable. They come when they say they are going to come. They do everything they say they are gon' do. They spend they money on you. They help you with your kids. They take them to the doctor, to the dentist. Their little ugly ass be out there pushing them in the swing."

Harvey concluded:

"They ain't ever going to cheat on you because they know don't nobody else want them. Get yourself an ugly man."

On the other hand, attractive men are unreliable, they have too many options, multiple children outside their marriage, they never show up on time, and the list goes on and on.

Meagan Good probably wishes she took Harvey's advice. She would still be married and probably have a boatload of beautiful children.

Watch the video below.

Meagan Good took steps to heal herself emotionally and physically after breaking up with her husband of 9 years, Pastor DeVon Franklin.

Like all relationships based on sexual attraction, problems arose once the chemistry faded.

Rumor has it that Good and Franklin cheated throughout their marriage. But they always prayed on it and reconciled.

In his divorce filing, Pastor Franklin, 43, said the couple separated in April and their marital bonds were irretrievably broken.

In an interview with Yahoo Lifestyle, Good said she stopped drinking alcohol and sought mental therapy when her world collapsed. The Jumping the Broom star said she found her strength in the bottom of a liquor bottle. But she knew getting drunk every day wasn't the answer.

The 40-year-old actress told Yahoo Lifestyle her mental health was her priority.

"It's everything. As I've gotten older, I can pinpoint the things I haven't dealt with. I was like, you need to look under the hood, you need a good therapist, you need to take time to make sure that your well-being and your spirit is your priority."

FayesVision/WENN.com

"This year I took a moment — [turning] 40 was about to happen. Around April, I stopped drinking and really leaned into therapy. I got very intentional about [wellness] because I wanted to go into 40 with peace of mind, with unexplainable joy, with more sense of self and a wholeness. I have a tendency to jump over things or go around them, instead of walking through them, and this year it was about walking through things and having those days when you’re grieving something from 15 or 20 years ago. Really walking through it."
 

Do you have any small self-care rituals to help you reset?

"I try to hit the reset button every morning internationally: I breathe, I pray. I make it a point not to touch my phone. I'll put on gospel or uplifting music, something to give me strength. As the day goes on and if I'm in a moment where I'm stressed out, I'll take a beat and steal away somewhere. I'll go into myself and just breathe and pray; I'll find that peace and reset my brain. Everything else can wait for five minutes."

What's your mantra for life?

"My authenticity is my superpower. There's something beautiful about knowing there's no one in the world like you. When you're not authentic, you're in trouble because you're not in alignment with who you are. When you're truly authentic, we bring the right people into our lives."

"Over the past 25 years, David and I have shared a beautiful adventure in love and partnership," she wrote in an Instagram post on Monday. "We have made the decision to go into a new phase of our life journey together, not as a couple, but as friends and co-parents to our amazing children."

In June 2019, the 46-year-old former slugger was shot at a bar while visiting a woman in his native Dominican Republic.

Ortiz underwent emergency surgery at a local clinic for six hours. Part of his intestine, as well as his gallbladder, were removed. He was airlifted to Boston's Massachusetts General Hospital where he underwent more surgeries.

He recovered after three surgeries and was released from MGH on July 26, 2019.

14 suspects -- including the shooter and the man who paid for the hit -- were eventually arrested in the Dominican Republic. It was later determined by police that Ortiz was not the intended target. The shooter was paid over $7,000 to kill a cousin of Ortiz's who was a known drug dealer.

On May 21, 2020, a restraining order against Ortiz was issued to the mother of his first son, David Andres Ortiz Almanzar.

Ortiz was ordered to stop "annoying, intimidating or threatening his former partner in person or by phone."
