David Banner issued a sincere apology to a Georgia family whose loved one was killed in an accident involving the rapper.

In a video shared on his Instagram page, Banner acknowledged the Evans family and apologized for the pain and suffering they endured.

Banner, 46, shared a video on Instagram.com on Friday, which he captioned, "My Condolences to The Evans Family and Friends."
 

Earlier this week, Banner posted a (now deleted) photo of his totaled car, with the caption: "People think they know but have no idea. I still have a concussion."

The family of the other driver, who was killed in the crash, accused Banner of vehicular homicide.

The internet is talking about Ayesha Curry grooming her husband Stephen Curry to be a gangsta thug.

According to the internet, Steph's dominant wife Ayesha totally rules him and their household. He doesn't appear to have the manly fortitude to tell his wife to back off and let him be the man and the head of their household.

In a recent video, Young Men's Daily Red Pill explains why Ayesha is grooming Steph to be the bad boy thug she never had.

"She's tired of Steph being the nice guy... She's trying to bring out the gangsta in Steph Curry before she cheats on him."

If you recall, Ayesha whined that she doesn't get enough male attention in her private messages as Steph receives from women in his direct messages on Instagram (Ayesha controls Steph's social media accounts).

YMDRP theorizes that Ayesha never had the chance to go through her "h*e phase" - so she's doing it now by undergoing plastic surgery and posting Thot pictures on the 'Gram.

He says women like Ayesha and Ciara Wilson are trying to groom their good men to be the bad boys they really want in their beds.

What do you think?

Christian Walker ripped Sen. Kamala Harris in a new video produced by the Log Cabin Republicans, a conservative LGBT advocacy group.

Christian, son of NFL legend Herschel Walker, isn't impressed with Harris as Joe Biden's vice president running mate.

"That VP is going to keep you on the victimhood plantation," he said. "She's going to give you an extra welfare check, and you're not going to be able to support yourself. They're going to entice you to divorce each other."

Christian also had a strong message for criminals who break the law and refuse to follow directions from the police.

"You don't get to choose when you get arrested. So, if you’re not in the mood, you still have to follow directions. If you're innocent, you still have to follow directions.... Criminals or people who are possibly guilty of a crime - even if you're innocent, you still have to follow the law. Listen to authority. Cops are the authority.

“We don't have a bad cop problem, sweetie. We have a respect authority problem. We have a lot of men - a lot of grown men who can't listen to directions. Kindergarteners can listen to directions from teachers... Grown men - I don't feel bad if you can't listen to a cop. Follow directions and your life won't be in danger. I'm over you."

Pastor John Gray apologized to his long-suffering wife for stepping out on her again. Gray's attorneys claimed he was being extorted by a woman who said he asked her to send nudes.

In a video posted on YouTube, Gray humbled himself and apologized to his wife, Aventer, and his congregation at Relentless Church in South Carolina.

To his wife, Gray said he was sorry for the pain he caused her. "You don't deserve it. You are an amazing woman of God."

The pastor spoke directly to his church and "God's sheep" who looked to him as an example of leadership.

"I want to take this moment to tell you I'm sorry," he said. "I'm sorry for the areas of my life that I left unattended."

He continued, "For every area of behavior that has dishonored the Holiness of God, I want to tell you I'm sorry."

Megan Thee Stallion finally revealed who allegedly shot her in a video on Instagram live late Thursday.

This has been a tough week for the "WAP" rapper, who was compared to disgraced actor Jussie Smollett and accused of lying about the seriousness of her foot injury.

Aaron J. Thornton/WireImage

Megan, 25, was injured after leaving a pool party thrown by socialite Kylie Jenner in Calabasas, Calif. on July 12.

Police arrested musician Tory Lanez on the night as the alleged shooting and charged him with a felony count of carrying a concealed weapon in a vehicle.

Megan told police she was shot in both feet, but she chose not to disclose the name of the shooter -- until Thursday night.

She took to Instagram live to say she's not a snitch -- "BUT, I'm not finna let y'all keep playing in my face! And I'm not finna let this ni**a keep playing in my face either. So, since y'all ho*s so worried 'bout it. Yes, this ni**a Tory shot me!"

Police initially said Megan was injured by broken glass because the jagged edges of her wound did not appear to be caused by a bullet. Police are very knowledgeable about gunshot wounds.

On Wednesday, Megan posted - then deleted - a photo of her foot injury to shut down the Jussie Smollet comparisons. But the photo only raised suspicions that she may have lied about the cause of her injury.

The drama continues.

This week, singer Trey Songz hit back at allegations of sexual misconduct with a bevy of women.

The 35-year-old singer, born Tremaine Aldon Neverson, was accused by Celina Powell's friend Aliza of holding her hostage inside a hotel room.

Aliza claims the R&B crooner and father of one confiscated her phone and purse, then urinated on her.

Actress, singer Keke Palmer also accused Trey of predatory behavior toward her.

Now Twitter has uncovered an old interview in which singer Bebe Rexha shares a MeToo story about Trey.

WENN/Avalon

Bebe, real name Bleta Rexha, says the 35-year-old flirted with her all night at a wedding party that he attended with a date. She said when he got her alone, he forced himself on her and tried to kiss her.

"He literally is at the door & pushes me against the wall, and puts his lips on my lips & is like 'let’s do this.'"

"Something else happened, but I'm not gonna say that," she said.

FayesVision/WENN.com

Bebe, 30, laughed nervously while sharing her story among friends.
 

The allegations threaten to destroy Trey's career - or what's left of it. Trey pleaded his case on Twitter.com Wednesday.

"Y'all stay ready to believe a bird," Trey wrote, revealing messages exchanged between himself and his accuser.

The moody Sagittarius continued: "I usually stay quiet on this but I feel that in many ways the movement to fight for the women who actually have suffered harassment and abuse on various levels, has been hijacked by those who find it convenient for themselves to come up as they seek to destroy someone’s life."

He brought up other women accusing him of sexual misconduct, writing: "I brush it off everytime [sic] but once you have an allegation no matter it's true weight in validation, it's now happened once and to some will be believable from that moment forward. None of that happened.

"Y'all remember Jane Doe claimed I sexually assaulted her in Miami? She wants me to pay for her therapy and the rest of her school cause of 'all the trauma she’s been through.' Pls read."

"You will choose 2believe what you want. I've been focusing my energy and time on good things and I know the Devil wants my soul more now than ever," he wrote. "Ima keep my head high and push forward. If you holdin me down in these moments I preciate that. [sic]"

Obama, 59, claimed America's democracy was at risk as long as Trump remained in office. He said Trump's presidency was like a "reality show" to get "the attention he craves."

Obama suggested Trump had not risen to the role of president and he was incapable of doing so.

Trump, 74, watched Obama's speech with interest while tweeting his reactions.

In one tweet, Trump wrote in all caps: "HE SPIED ON MY CAMPAIGN, AND GOT CAUGHT!"

"WHY DID HE REFUSE TO ENDORSE SLOW JOE UNTIL IT WAS ALL OVER, AND EVEN THEN WAS VERY LATE? WHY DID HE TRY TO GET HIM NOT TO RUN?"

Trump also tweeted a video that showed him criticizing Obama and his former VP Joe Biden. "Now President Obama did not do a good job. And the reason I'm here is because of President Obama and Joe Biden - because if they did a good job, I wouldn't be here."

Cardi B shared her ideas with Democratic nominee Joe Biden that she hopes he will do if he is elected president in November.

The rapper, who hopes to be appointed Biden's secretary of education, spoke with the politician via Zoom video conference, as part of her Elle magazine cover story.

During the chat, Biden asked the "Bodak Yellow" rapper what she expects from the next U.S. leader.

"I have a whole list of things that I want our next president to do for us. But first, I just want Trump out," she said. "His mouth gets us in trouble so much."

"I don't want to be lied to -- we're dealing with a pandemic right now, and I just want answers. I want to know when this will be over. I want to go back to my job. But I don't want someone to lie to me and tell me that it's fine not to wear a mask, that everything is going to be okay."

Cardi continued: "I want a president to tell me what the steps are for us to get better, to tell me, 'This is why it is taking so long, this is why other countries are doing better than ours.' Tell me the truth, the hard-core truth."

"And also: I want free Medicare. It's important to have free (healthcare), because look at what is happening right now. Of course, I think we need free college. And I want Black people to stop getting killed and no justice for it. I'm sick of it. I just want laws that are fair to Black citizens and fair to cops, too..."

After listening to the "WAP" star's list of demands, Biden, 78, responded: "Also, by the way, if I get elected president, anybody with a family (that makes) less than 125 grand, you're going to get free education. And everybody gets free community college."

He added: "The way we can pay for all of this is doing practical things, like making sure that everybody has to pay their fair share. (For example) no corporation should pay less than 15 per cent tax."

Cardi is lending her support to Biden, after her initial pick for president, Bernie Sanders, dropped out of the race in April to make way for Biden.

Lauryn Hill's daughter Selah Marley says her mother's form of discipline was slave like.

Selah, daughter of Lauryn, 45, and musician Rohan Marley, 48, claims her mother's form of discipline involved a belt and lots of threats.

In a 2-hour video on Instagram, Selah, 20, described the beatings she suffered as a minor child.

"And then the threats, the constant threats. That belt man. That's that slave sh*t. That was some slavery sh*t. All Black parents were on that sh*t."

Johnny Nunez/Getty Images

Selah, pictured with Lauryn and her grandmother, Valerie Hill, praised her "amazing" mom, but she described the legendary singer as a single mother who wasn't always nurturing and often lashed out in anger at her children.

"My mom is an amazing woman, but she obviously didn't do everything right. She was just very angry. So, so, so, so, so, so angry. She was literally not easy to talk to and then half the time we didn't live with her. I lived with my grandparents half the time… It's crazy, I’m playing this trauma back in my head as I speak to you."

Johnny Nunez/Getty Images

She said the threats Lauryn used were meant to instill fear in her. ("You want me to embarrass you? You want me to give you something to cry about?")

Selah added: "I'm not mad at a little discipline, but what can a five-year-old do? What can a seven-year-old do?"

The fashion model and social media influencer also opened up about her "daddy issues" due to her absentee father, Rohan Marley, son of the late reggae legend, Bob Marley.

"Honestly guys, I'm just hurting. I can't even front that I'm not. I've been hurting for so much of my life and so much of my life has been me avoiding how much I'm really hurting just from the circumstances."

Edward Berthelot/Getty Images

Selah revealed she has a split personality, in addition to her daddy issues, which affects her relationships with men.

"I have a form of split personality to some degree, I mean not to like you know diagnose myself, but just a form of split because it's like, a part of me stopped growing at the age that my dad left. Whenever that stopped, I feel like something just stopped or maybe it never grew, it never developed... especially when it comes to men, like males in my life. They bring out this dark, dark, dark thing inside of me because I feel like I need them... like I hurt them because I'm mad at them, because I'm mad at my father for not being around but I need them because I don’t have a father so I need someone..."

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot vowed to arrest rioters who went on a looting spree in downtown Chicago after news of a police-involved shooting in the city's Englewood neighborhood.

Mayor Lightfoot joined Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown and city officials at a news conference following a night of unrest reportedly due to a police-involved shooting in Englewood, a neighborhood in Chicago. The 20-year-old victim is in stable condition at a hospital.

After the shooting, a crowd gathered on the South Side, The Loop, Mag Mile and the Gold Coast areas. Social media posts encouraged "a caravan of cars" to go loot downtown. 400 officers were dispatched to the downtown area.

Social media videos shows looters ransacking stores and fleeing with cash registers. In one video, a stolen Audi was rammed into a Tesla dealership. More than 100 looters were arrested on Sunday night.

Superintendent Brown said the looting happened on Sunday night because there were no consequences after the George Floyd riots. Very few criminals were prosecuted after previous riots in May and June.

Mayor Lightfoot was heated, as she called the rioters "felony criminals," and she instructed one reporter not to "bait" her and the police chief with loaded questions.

"This was not protected First Amendment speech," Mayor Lightfoot said. "This was not poor people engaged in petty theft to feed themselves. This was straight-up felony criminal conduct."

The mayor said the shooting in Englewood was not a driving factor in the looting last night. She said the looting was "deeply painful" for residents and merchants, and she thanked the police for their professionalism.

The former prosecutor urged law enforcement to put their best officers on the investigation into the looting.

"To those who engaged in this criminal behavior, let's be clear, we are coming for you... You have no right to take and destroy the property of others."

Questlove and his band The Roots are in hot water after singer Jaguar Wright claims they were in the studio when R. Kelly seduced young girls a backroom.

In a livestream video, Wright, 43, claimed Questlove, real name Ahmir Thompson, was in a Philadelphia studio when the disgraced R&B singer seduced young girls in a back room.

In a video captioned, "Threatening me? I'm ready," Wright expressed regret for not speaking out about Kelly's alleged inappropriate behavior with young girls.

"Do you know how responsible I feel for all the women that I let get hurt because I didn't say nothing," she said.

"Look at R. Kelly... The Roots was around when that ni--a was in the A room, sending his mf driver off to go get girls..."

Wright went on to say "a member of The Roots" specifically told her to mind her own business if she wanted to keep her career.

The studio is about 5 miles from Simon Gratz High School, one of the schools mentioned by Wright in her video.

Kelly, 53, is currently in a Chicago detention facility awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges.

Questlove, the 49-year-old famed drummer for The Roots who served as in-house band for The Tonight Show, was among the celebrities who opted out of Lifetime's documentary series, Surviving R. Kelly, last year.

At the time, Questlove claimed he was being asked to acknowledge Kelly's "genius" as the reason for his refusal to appear in the documentary produced by journalist dream hampton.

Black Lives Matter protesters blocked courthouse doors across the country to prevent landlords from filing thousands of evictions.

Some governors imposed moratoriums preventing landlords from evicting their tenants during the coronavirus pandemic.

Protesters blocked courthouse doors, preventing landlords from filing evictions in cities where the eviction moratoriums expired.

More than 15,000 renters are facing evictions in New Jersey, despite Gov. Phil Murphy's executive order preventing people from being kicked out if they don't pay rent.

The moratorium doesn't prevent the filing of evictions, but it stops the courts from enforcing evictions until November. New Jersey residents can stay in their homes until then, even if they don't pay their rent.

BLM activists fear a "tsunami of evictions" after the November elections.

New Jersey could see as many as 304,000 evictions filed over the next four months, an estimate 600% increase since last year.

Tensions between landlords and renters have escalated since moratoriums were placed on evictions in some states.

Joe Biden accused President Trump of being the first racist to be elected U.S. president. The Democratic nominee for president made the remark during a virtual townhall from his basement in Delaware on Wednesday.

The 77-year-old Democrat chastised Trump for repeatedly referring to the COVID-19 pandemic as the "China virus" or the "Wuhan virus".

Biden said, "the way he deals with people based on the color of their skin, their national origin, where they're from, is absolutely sickening."

Biden added, "No sitting president has ever done this. Never, never, never. No Republican president has done this. No Democratic president."

Ignoring the fact that past U.S. presidents have owned slaves, Biden said, "We've had racists, and they've existed, and they've tried to get elected president. But he's the first one that has."

President Trump responded to a reporter's question about Biden's statement during a press briefing on Wednesday. Trump said he'd "done more for black Americans than anybody with the possible exception of Abraham Lincoln. Nobody has even been close.”

Former U.S. presidents who've bought and sold African slaves include George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Andrew Jackson.

The former vice president made headlines earlier this year when he suggested Black people who don't vote Democrat "ain't Black".

Trey Songz took aim at Kanye West for being "in the way of progress" after the rapper shared his controversial views on revered anti-slavery activist Harriet Tubman.

During his first presidential rally in Charleston, South Carolina on Sunday, Kanye claimed former slave Tubman, who returned to a plantation 19 times to lead 70 others to freedom, "just had them work for other white people!"

Johnny Nunez/WireImage

Trey was among Kanye's musical peers who wondered what happened to their old friend.

Sharing a clip from the rally, which features a woman saying, "Yo, we're leaving right now," following the slave comments, on his Instagram page, Trey, real name Tremaine Aldon Neverson, wrote: "They been sayin man Trey need to call these n****s before he just put em online blastin."

Referring to the rap producer as "goofy," Trey said: "Ye you in the way of progress foreal [sic], how you turn this goofy from who you were?. I'm so confused, whoever got his number need to call him."
 

50 Cent reposted a clip of the speech alongside the caption: "What the f**k did he just say? This is all Jay Z's fault. Kanye's first rally. LOL."

Rapper Q Tip simply posted an image of Tubman along with the caption, "#Hero," while female rapper Noname didn't hold back, tweeting: "KEEP HARRIET TUBMAN NAME OUT YOUR F**KING MOUTH!!!!!!!"

The View co-host Meghan McCain tweeted: "Kanye West needs serious help, not media coverage."

Kanye's announcement that he was running for president upset Democrats who accused him of conspiring with his pal, President Donald Trump, to siphon off Democratic votes from Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
