Iggy Azalea ended her engagement with her fiance, Nick Young after learning he was expecting a second child with his ex-girlfriend.

Iggy Azalea ended her engagement with her fiancé, Nick Young after learning he was expecting a second child with his ex-girlfriend, Life & Style is reporting.
According to the gossip weekly, Young, 31, was allegedly cheating on the "Black Widow" rapper with his baby mama Keonna Greene. The magazine said she is four months along in her pregnancy.
Greene and the Los Angeles Lakers player have a 4-year-old son, Nick Jr.
Azalea, 26, announced she was splitting with the b-baller earlier this month via Instagram, citing trust issues?
“Unfortunately although I love Nick and have tried to rebuild my trust in him – It's become apparent in the last few weeks I am unable to," Azalea said.
This isn’t the first time Young was accused of being unfaithful.
In March, a video surfaced online featuring the shooting guard bragging about hooking up with other women.
It was leaked online by his fellow Lakers teammate, D'Angelo Russell.
At the time, Azalea, 26, joked on a radio show that he'd be left with "half a penis" if he was ever caught cheating, all the while still proudly wearing her 10.43 carat engagement ring in public.
The couple began dating in 2013 and he popped the question last June.

Jill Scott got married to Mike Dodson .

Jill Scott took a long walk down the aisle.
The Grammy-winning songbird married her longtime love, Mike Dobson, on Saturday. While the Las Vegas wedding took most people by surprise, trusted friends of the couple knew in February that a union was imminent.
That's when Dobson told some of his closer confidantes “That's my baby and I'm going to marry her soon,” according to one pal.
And he did. This is wedding number two for both the bride and the groom.

While Scott, 44, and Dobson, 49, had remained quiet about their nuptials, DJ Mars, who provided the soundtrack for the big day, spilled the beans on Instagram with video and photos that have since been deleted.
“This wedding made my summer!” he captioned one of his posts. It's no wonder Mars wasn't let in on the secret earlier.
“I've known Mike for almost 20 years, but dude could have alluded to the fact that he was marrying Jill Scott (lol)!” he wrote. “All he said was, u are working with her in Vegas. He's a total class act, he won with the wedding!”
Though Scott and Dobson are both known for their booming voices, they recruited Big Daddy Kane to perform at the Sin City celebration. According to Mars, Dobson told him that the “Smoother Operator” rapper was on board to surprise the bride and asked him to call Kane and put together a plan.
“Dude walks in and they didn't even recognize him until he starts rapping,” Mars wrote. “Her face is soooo priceless.”
Scott and Dobson will be spending a lot of time in Los Angeles, where she's working on director John Singleton's new movie “Snowfall.” Scott will be in Brooklyn on Aug. 14 to perform at the Amphitheater at Coney Island Boardwalk. Dobson, who owns a recording studio, also spends time performing with the Flute Theatre company, which introduces kids with autism to the work of William Shakspeare.

Bouncer accused Lil Wayne of punching him in the face

He’s nothing but trouble.
Lil Wayne clocked a nightclub bouncer after Sunday’s BET Awards, according to a battery report filed with Los Angeles police.
Weezy and 2 Chainz hosted an after-party at Hyde nightclub, but things went sour when some of the “Lollipop” rapper’s crew got turned away at the door, according to TMZ.
The 33-year-old — whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr. — allegedly argued with the doorman before slugging him in the face.
Wayne later denied the punch, claiming the unnamed staffer worked in the VIP section all night.
Sources told the gossip site that the bouncer accidentally grabbed Wayne by the arm without realizing who he was. He later apologized.
The bouncer went to the hospital, but police told the Daily News they couldn’t confirm any injuries.
“A battery report was taken and there is an ongoing investigation,” an LAPD spokeswoman said.

Prince Estate is sued by two people looking for a payout

The claims against Prince’s estate aren’t limited to daddy issues.
A California man seeks a $1 billion payout, claiming he was never paid in a lucrative verbal agreement with Prince after the two met in 1982 — before the release of “Purple Rain.”
Rodney Herachio Dixon, in a bizarre and rambling 36-page filing, demands “the sole and exclusive ownership of the intellectual properties held by Prince Rogers Nelson at the time of his death.”
And an Alabama woman wants $500,000 as reimbursement for her work as “the creator” of Prince’s 2004 double-platinum album “Musicology.”
Four months before her court filing, Kimberley Felecia Potts was arrested for trespassing at Prince’s Paisley Park estate — where the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer’s lifeless body was discovered April 21.
She was carrying a black tambourine festooned with Prince’s familiar logo.

The Dixon filing features purple prose and outlandish claims. At one point, Dixon claims that he and Prince referred to each other as “Messiah.”
There’s more, of course.
“It is hereby clearly understood that neither Prince nor Mr. Dixon thought they were Jesus,” the court papers explain. “The term Messiah was used to describe people who could do incredible things ... for example, the legendary basketball phenomenon Earl Monroe.”
Dixon claimed Prince promised to make him a millionaire in three years or a billionaire in 12 years.
“Mr. Dixon asked Prince how could he be so sure,” the court papers said. “Prince told Mr. Dixon that he could do whatever he wanted to.”

Drake's muscle packs a mean punch ...

Drake's muscle packs a mean punch ... according to the guy on the receiving end.
TMZ got these pics of the injuries of producer/rapper Detail, who claims the bruises were inflicted at the hands of Drake's security guard.

The injuries were so bad he was hospitalized for days ... with a broken jaw and other injuries that required several surgeries.
Detail claims Drake invited him to his home back in 2014 on the pretext of working on a project, but it was really an ambush. Detail says Drake was pissed he wouldn't work exclusively with the Canadian rapper.
Detail says he was so badly hurt he couldn't work for a year, and he asked Drake repeatedly, and in vain, to cover his medical expenses.

When Drake refused, Detail had lawyers, Panish Shea & Boyle, file a lawsuit.

TMZ sources say Detail's camp is worried Drake's crew may be in L.A. for this weekend's BET Awards, and they're scared of more retaliation.

They scared of Champagne Papi ……..

Taylor Swift, Ray J And Amber Rose Nude Look A Likes In Kanye West Music Video 'Famous

The attention-seeking Kanye West has taken his enemies to bed.
In perhaps his most bizarre artistic endeavor, the egotistical rapper live-streamed the debut of his music video for "Famous" on Friday night — a natural follow-up to his never ending saga with pop star Taylor Swift.
Alluding to the racy lyrics of how he "and Taylor might still have sex," West seemed to do just that in an exclusive Tidal video, which is a clear attempt to break the internet a la Kim Kardashian.
In it, a shocking naked carbon copy of Swift laid eyes-closed in bed next to a nude Kanye West — and she was not alone.
Eleven other nude stars were featured in bed together, with cameras zooming in on their birthday suits throughout the entirety of the video.
It's unclear which stars actually participated but it's safe to say Swift was likely a creation of magical visual effects.
Lying next to West was, of course, his booty-flaunting wife Kim Kardashian and oddly by her side was former sex video participant Ray J.

Some of the ones chosen to share the massively-sized bed were obvious attack choices, like George Bush, who West once famously accused of not caring about black people.
Then there was his ex Amber Rose, who he has long slammed as if he never boasted of his love for her.

More surprising was a nude sleeping version of a pot-belly Bill Cosby — the accused rapist that West once proudly tweeted was "innocent!"
Billionaire Republican Donald Trump also made the cut, joined by songstress Rihanna and her rapper ex Chris Brown. Rounding out the unlikely dozen bedmates was Caitlyn Jenner and Anna Wintour.
Out of all the naked victims, Swift was the most likely. The rap mogul reignited their beef in February when he first dropped "Famous," taking credit for Swift's mega success.
He then claimed Swift gave her approval for the hateful lyric — an allegation she has denied. In turn, Swift took a swing at her nemesis while accepting her Grammy earlier in the year, warning of those who might try to "undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments, your fame."
Despite the grotesquely offensive video and inclusion of many of his foes like Swift, West says he was simply depicting fame.
"It's not in support or anti any of [the people in the video]," West told Vanity Fair magazine. "It's a comment on fame."
Fittingly, he concluded the video with "special thanks" to all the stars depicted "for being famous."

T.I stepdaughter Zonnique Pullins Explains Why She Feels Safer With A Gun

Rapper T.I.'s stepdaughter owned up to the “honest mistake” of forgetting she had a pistol in her purse at an airport security checkpoint — and cited the recent shooting death of singer Christina Grimmie while explaining why carrying a gun made her feel safer.

In her first comments since her arrest, the 20-year-old former girl group singer admitted to People she’d been “irresponsible” to mistakenly leave the small handgun in her purse while she packed in a hurry, but still defended her right to bear arms.

“I feel like I definitely have to stay safe — especially with me going around so much by myself,” Pullins said.

She then referenced the 22-year-old ex-“Voice” contestant, who died June 11 after a crazed fan gunned her down at a post-concert autograph session in Orlando.

“I’m not usually with anybody or security or anything, so I always feel like I have to keep myself safe. Then, with all the things going on, especially with Christina Grimmie, stuff like that,” she said.
Pullins, the daughter of “T.I. and Tiny: The Family Hustle” star Tameka (Tiny) Harris, was arrested last Thursday after an x-ray scan at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport uncovered her .380 Ruger semi-automatic handgun.
The city of Atlanta claimed Pullins’ firearm after she wasn’t able to produce the papers.
Harris, who reportedly purchased the gun for her daughter, explained her own motherly concerns to the magazine.

I find it extremely difficult, especially if your having to tour across country it's very hard for some women to grasp their man leaving them for shows. And honestly I don't blame them cuz everyone handles temptation different.

Hands down  lI would love to have a sing with Anthony Hamilton on the hook. But someone to perform with I would love to do a show with nipsey hussle
