Sandrarose.com couldn't find any legit news sources to corroborate the rumors.

Failed mayoral candidate Jamal Green weighed in on the gossip, tweeting: "If something isn't true, simply put out a statement and kill the rumor. We all hope the resignation is true but the reason should be one of your former scandals. Anjanette Young, demonizing Adam Toledo, these are good reasons too.."

Lightfoot famously fired Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie T. Johnson after he passed out behind the wheel of his car in 2019. Johnson had been drinking with a female police officer with whom he'd had an affair.

CNN anchor Don Lemon is livid after Vatican officials refused to bless same-sex unions.

The leaders of the Catholic Church announced the ruling on Monday, March 15, as part of a two-page decree signed by Pope Francis.

The ruling stated God "cannot bless sin", calling any such blessing "not licit."

The Vatican said the church should be welcoming toward gay people, "with respect and sensitivity," but not endorse their unions.

Lemon was a guest on ABC's "The View" where he promoted his new book, addressing racism in America.

Switching to the Vatican's ruling, Lemon, who is in a same-sex marriage, said the ruling was "wrong" and he called on the Vatican to "reexamine themselves and their teachings."

He added:

"I respect people's right to believe in whatever they want to believe in their God. But if you believe in something that hurts another person or that does not give someone the same rights or freedoms, not necessarily under the Constitution, because this is under God, I think that that's wrong."

He continued: "God is not about hindering people or even judging people."

"We have to start being realistic about God and the Bible," he said. "If you are a person of faith in this country, and we know America is built on faith and religious freedom, a good way of starting is to present the true identity of Jesus."

Lemon went on to describe Jesus as "a Black or brown person."

"[Jesus] is a black or brown person, rather than someone who looks like a white hippy from Sweden or Norway. We should start with that and put that in your home, either a Black Jesus or Brown Jesus. Jesus looked more like a Muslim or someone who is dark, rather than a blonde-looking carpenter."

A Bridgeton, Mo. woman and her 2-year-old daughter who were reported missing last week were found dead in a vehicle parked near an apartment complex in North St. Louis.

Police found the bodies of Kanisha Richardson, 37, and two-year-old Ava Richardson inside a maroon 2014 GMC Terrain just before 4:30 p.m. Saturday.

The two were reported missing on Wednesday, Jan. 13 -- two days after Richardson made suicidal statements on Facebook.

The two were seen at Chuck E. Cheese's at the South County Center in Mehlville, Mo. on Jan. 11. They were last seen alive at a Chick-Fil-A at 12450 St. Charles Rock Road in Bridgeton on Jan. 12, according to KSDK News. Based on witness sightings, police initially believed they were headed to Florida.

No cause of death was released, but police said Richardson may have been armed with a handgun and that she and the toddler were endangered persons.

Alea Turner, Ava's stepmother, launched a GoFundMe page to raise money for her stepdaughter's funeral expenses. The child's biological father is unknown.

"On January 11th My Wife and Daughter went missing. January 16th we found out that Kanisha and Ava were gone," Turner wrote on GoFundMe.

"My babies are no longer here to laugh with, argue with, make new memories, or grow. I won't hear 'mommy ima be a lady like you' or 'I'm getting big like my sis sis'. I won’t hear Kani obsess about IHOP coffee or laughing at all her new style stunts. I'm breaking down. No ones prepared for one burial let alone two. Nobody should ever have to bury a child. No one should have to know what it feels like to bury a sister. Anything helps Please help me bury them."

Former lesbian couple Lena waithe (right) and Alana Mayo (left) are headed to divorce court.

Earlier this week, Mayo filed a petition to dissolve their civil union after Waithe, 36, confirmed their nuptials in January.

"After careful thought and consideration, we have decided to part ways," read a joint statement from Waithe and Mayo's reps to E! News. "We have nothing but support for one another and ask that you respect our privacy during this time."

Mayo filed the petition in Los Angeles Superior Court, per court records obtained by The Blast.

Last November, Waithe told Ellen DeGeneres that she and Mayo had tied the knot after living together for years.

"We snuck and did it, you know," she said. "We didn't really make any announcements or a big... you know."

But 2 months after the quickie nuptials, their relationship lay in ruins, allegedly due to Waithe's rampant cheating.

Waithe (right) is rumored to be in a relationship with bisexual actress Cynthia Erivo (left). Sources say Waithe couldn't stop cheating and buying designer handbags and shoes for side chicks.

The Chicago native was raised by her single mother and grandmother on the South Side of Chicago. Her parents divorced when she was only 3. She never knew her father.

Niecy Nash insists she wasn't "coming out" of the closet when she exchanged vows with stud lesbian singer, Jessica Betts.

The 50-year-old actress and comedian insists her relationship with Jessica has nothing to do with her gender.

The Reno 911! star tied the knot with the singer, months after divorcing her 2nd husband Jay Tucker in March.

She announced her relationship status in a post on social media last month, revealing her new name.

"Mrs. Carol Denise Betts," she captioned an Instagram photo.

 

Niecy was also wed to Don Nash, the father of her three kids, from 1994 to 2007. Ironically, Jessica sang at Niecy's wedding when she exchanged vows with Tucker in 2011.

Jessica, 38, sang to Niecy when she guest-starred on an episode of Claws in 2018.

Now Niecy reveals she never hid her sexuality and she isn't "coming out" of the closet because she was never in one.

"(My marriage) has absolutely nothing to do with gender and it has everything to do with her soul," Niecy tells People magazine. "She is the most beautiful soul I have ever met in my life."

Niecy, Carol Denise Ensley, stopped short of admitted she is bisexual.

"I was not suppressing my sexuality my whole life," she said. "I love who I love. At one point in my life, I married twice and I love those people. And today I love this person. I've done everything I wanted to do on my own terms and my own way. So my choice now in a partner has nothing to do with who I've always been. It's a matter of who I am in this moment."

And Niecy doesn't consider her wedding announcement a "coming out" moment, adding, "It's rather a going into myself and being honest about who I love. And I'm not limiting myself on what that love is supposed to look like."

Niecy and Jessica first connected on social media in 2015, when Nash was married to Tucker.

"(Jessica) and I were friends, but I never saw her as someone I would date," Nash recalls, recalling that she had a change of heart after the couple split. "But we began to see each other in a way we never had before."

Jessica is best known as the winner of Missy Elliott's Road to Stardom reality competition series in 2005.

Niecy Nash is off the market. The 50-year-old comedic actress tied the knot with her lover of 2 years, singer Jessica Betts over the weekend.

Niecy posted a wedding photo on Instagram. She captioned the image "Mrs. Carol Denise Betts ... @jessicabettsmusic #LoveWins."

Jessica reposted the image on her IG account, captioning the image, "I got a whole Wife."

The announcement left bloggers wondering who Jessica is and how Niecy managed to keep her a secret for 2 years.
 

Jessica did make an appearance on the TV drama Claws in 2018.

It turns out there were hints all along, but some of us missed them because we've never heard of Jessica until today.

Nash was previously married to Don Nash for 13 years. They share three children.

She split from her second husband Jay Tucker after 8 years of marriage. Their bitter divorce was finalized in March.

The surprise announcement leaves Niecy's fans wondering if this is all staged since Jessica has an album coming out. But a source close to the photographer confirmed the wedding was real.

Calls to Niecy's manager for comment were not returned.

@winterstone thanks for the corona solid!

Many expressed anger that Raven tied the knot with a white person amid the racial tension and strife in America following the deaths of unarmed Black men at the hands of police.

One follower raged: "I am roasting her for denouncing herself as a black person. Marrying a white woman makes it look like she's not with us due to her past comments. Otherwise, I don't care who or what she marries. Just disappointed, my childhood hero doesn't align with her people."

Another IG user wrote: "All of you make God do America just like he did Sodom and Gomorrah."

But others were more tolerant toward Raven's unorthodox union.

"What is wrong with all of you," one woman wrote, "'this isn't the time to be married to a white person' are all of you, okay? You can 100 percent support BLM and be with a white person, and it's not supposed to black vs. whites. It's supposed to be all of us versus racism, injustices, and ignorance. Come on."

Another IG user addd: "What does marrying white people have to do with ending racism when many racists sleep with black people?"

Fans warned Raven that her new life partner might be a gold digger after her money. They prayed that Raven was smart enough to have a prenup in place.

Raven-Symoné previously dated part-time model and 'Empire' actress AzMarie Livingston. They officially called it quits in 2015 after 3 years together.

A New Jersey woman is facing murder and weapons charges in the death of her 32-year-old spouse of 2 years. Police say Mayra Gavilanez-Alectus, 48, is currently not in custody and is a fugitive.

A manhunt is underway for Mayra who fled after beating Rebecca Gavilanez-Alectus to death in Brick Township, NJ on May 17.

Mayra reportedly used a cylindrical wine chiller to bludgeon Rebecca to death during an argument, DailyMail.com reported.

Police responded to an apartment on Creek Road to investigate a report of an unresponsive woman. Officers arrived to find Rebecca's battered body in an upstairs bedroom.

The domestic violence attack came a week after Mayra posted a gushing message in broken English and Spanish, expressing her love for Rebecca.

"Mi amor gracias for all the unaccountable ways you make this little crazy family... and my entire life better with every moment. ("You know what's up") I truly blessed that you are my wife. Te amp PRECIOSA... Hoy mañana y siempre. Happy Mother's Day Mi Amor!!"

Authorities have not disclosed what sparked the domestic violence.

Police say domestic violence incidents have increased sharply during the coronavirus pandemic in the United States.

Singer/songwriter David Crosby hit back at fan speculation that he only served as "sperm donor" for lesbian rocker Melissa Etheridge, 58, and her ex-partner Julie Cypher.

Etheridge's son, Beckett Cypher, died Wednesday of an opioid overdose after struggling with drug addiction for years. He was 21.

Crosby, a co-founder of Crosby, Stills & Nash band, donated sperm so Cypher (left) could conceive son Beckett and daughter Bailey Cypher.

Etheridge, Crosby and Cypher were featured with their children, Bailey and Beckett, and Crosby's wife, Jan Dance (left), on a 2000 cover of Rolling Stone magazine as an example of a modern family (below).

Crosby, 78, took to Twitter.com on Thursday to dispute allegations that he only served as the sperm donor and was not actively involved in his children' lives.

One fan wrote: "I respectfully point out, David was their donor... They did not have a son 'with' him. He was Melissa and Julie's child. They raised him. Like most donors, he played no other part."

Crosby responded: "Not true."

In a 1994 interview, Etheridge told The Advocate about her plans to have children with then partner Cypher.

She said she hoped having children would help society overcome their fears of homosexuals raising children.

"I think one of the many fears people have about homosexuality is around children. I think that the more gay parents raise good, strong, compassionate people, the better the world will be," she said.

But Cypher and Etheridge split in 2000. Etheridge went on to have twins in 2006 with new partner Tammy Lynn Michaels. They broke up in 2010 after dating 8 years.

Cypher has been married to a man, Matthew Hale, since 2004.
