<p>Ja Rule And Ashanti Changes “Natural Born Killers” Tour Name </p>

Ja Rule and Ashanti are showing their sensitive sides.
The two hip-hop artists decided to change their tour name from “Natural Born Killers” to just “Natural Born” in the wake of senseless violence across the globe, Ja Rule told TMZ.
The “Put it on Me” singer said the pair thought it might “insensitive to the families of the victims” to leave it as is, according to TMZ.

The Queens-born rapper posted an updated tour poster to his Instagram account on Monday with the word “killers” crossed out.

Ja Rule assured TMZ that they have the right to call it whatever they want, but it was their choice to make the change anyway.

The “Natural Born” name is solely for promotional purposes as tickets for the show just state “Ja Rule and Ashanti,” according to the gossip site.

Ja Rule and Ashanti are well-known for putting out early 2000 hits as a team, including “Always on Time” and “What’s Luv.”
Their tour kicks off in New York City on Aug. 25 at the Playstation Theatre.

Mary J. Blige flies for divorce from husband kendu isaac

It looks like it won't be a family affair for much longer.
Mary J. Blige has filed for divorce from her manager and husband of 12 years, Martin (Kendu) Isaacs, according to court documents obtained by the Daily News.
The Bronx-born artist cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the divorce and is asking that Isaacs not be allowed any type of spousal support, according to the documents.
The date of separation is listed as "to be determined."
"Ms. Blige is saddened to say it is true that she has filed for divorce saying sometimes things don't work how we hoped they would, but there is a divine plan and a reason for everything," the singer's rep said in a statement to The News.
"Mary will continue writing and working on her album which is due out later this year along with her world tour. She thanks and appreciates her fans for their support and love through this very difficult emotional time," the rep said.
It is unclear if the couple, who don't have any children together, had a pre-nuptial agreement.
Blige brought on attorney Gary Fishbein to assist in her the divorce case. Fishbein previously repped Ryan Phillippe in his divorce from Reese Witherspoon and also represented Halle Berry's ex Gabriel Aubry in the couple's child custody battle.
The "Family Affair" singer married Isaacs back in 2003 at her home in Bergen County, New Jersey.
Blige and Isaacs made headlines in 2013 when they were hit with a $3.4 million tax lien by the state of N.J. Her hubby got defensive on Twitter noting that he and his wife are fine following the news.
The R&B superstar — often referred to as the "Queen of hip-hop soul" — got her start back in 1989 with jams like "No More Drama" and "Real Love" topping the charts. As of 2013, she had sold more than 50 million albums and won nine Grammy Awards.
Mary be like ….

Rihanna concert in nice canceled after horrific attack

An upcoming Rihanna show in Nice, France has been canceled in light of the horrific Bastille Day attack and the singer is safe from her visit to the suffering town, which saw the death of at least 84 people on Thursday.
The pop star was originally scheduled to play at the Allianz Stadium on Friday night as part of her Anti World Tour.

The 28-year-old singer was already in town on Thursday preparing for the show when a driver plowed into the celebratory crowd and opened fire at the Promenade des Anglais.

Dozens of other revelers were wounded in the rampage and the driver was shot dead by police.
Christian Estrosi, the Mayor of Nice, later tweeted the plug had been pulled on the performance, as well as on other events in the city.

A rep for the singer told Billboard magazine that the singer was "safe."

Still, sources told TMZ that the "Work" singer's team is frantically working on removing her from the chaotic region.

Actress Tichina Arnold shocked at hisband's sex tape leak

Rule No. 1 of hiding a sex tape: don't send it to all of your friends.
Actress Tichina Arnold — who starred in sitcoms like "Martin" and "Everybody Hates Chris" — is opening up about her estranged husband Rico Hines' infidelities that were broadcast publicly in a leaked sex tape.

Arnold said she did not expect the tape of Hines engaging in sexual relations with another woman "to go public the way it did" this January, despite the fact that she texted the video to several of her close friends, People reported.

"No one from my side leaked it," she told People.
Arnold sent the tape to a close circle of friends, including the women that served as her bridesmaids.

The 47-year-old actress from Queens said she felt "betrayed" after watching the video of her husband cheating.

"I had that feeling of, you know, beyond him being my husband, this is supposed to be my friend, my confidant. Somebody who I can trust. And when you can't trust the person that you sleep with every night, there's a problem," she told People.
"I could no longer trust him. I could no longer lay with him. And it doesn't make him a horrible person. We all make mistakes, but not with me and not on my time and not in my life," Tichina continued.

Arnold revealed that it also wasn't the first time her husband strayed.

The couple tried working on their issues, including Hines' prior infidelities, but it came to a point where she just had to move on from her second marriage.

"I'm sure there are a lot of people that are upset with me, but it's not their problem," she said. "This was my issue that I needed to deal with, and I'm old enough to deal with my issues."

As for finding love again, Arnold said she's open to it, but a third marriage is "not gonna happen."
How you look when you think you found the love of ya life …….

Queen Latifah Says Racism Is alive and kicking in VH1 Hip hop honor speech

Rapper-turned-actress Queen Latifah is calling for u.n.i.t.y. in the wake of last week's tragic police-involved shootings.
The hip-hop icon said racism remains prominent today following the recent wave of violence that led to the deaths of Alton Sterling, Philando Castile and five Dallas police officers — and she's ready for that to change.

"I don't care how much money or things I have, or Puff (Daddy) has, or Missy (Elliott) has, the ladies have, if I go outside and try to hail a cab and he passes me for the white woman standing right there — that racism is still alive and kicking," she said at the VH1 Hip Hop Honors show Monday.

"And we have to change that," she continued. "And I'm not blaming the white lady, she needed a cab too. I'm just saying we gotta change this attitude."
The empowering speech drew a rousing ovation from the audience at the ceremony, which was held in honor of influential female artists in hip-hop.

The "U.N.I.T.Y." artist, 46, is the latest pop culture figure to speak out following the horrific shootings. Others include Beyoncé, who paid tribute to the "senselessly" murdered Dallas officers with a solemn Instagram post, and her husband Jay Z, who unveiled a years-old, previously unreleased anti-police brutality anthem titled "Spiritual."

And Aliza Garza, one of the Black Lives Matters co-founders, weighed in on the movement at the VH1 Hip Hop Honors as well.
"This movement is grounded in black peoples' dignity, justice and freedom," she said. "It's about love, not violence."

Race wasn't the only significant topic discussed at the ceremony. Latifah, a Grammy winner, also discussed the importance of recognizing the achievements of women in hip-hop and continuing to celebrate female artists in the genre.

"All of the queens in this building — we built hip-hop," she said during her speech. "And there's no way I can allow us to be erased from the history or the future of hip-hop. So understand this has been happening for a long time, and it will continue. I ask that you listen, audience, and open your ears to some music from the females in this game."
Among the female hip-hip acts honored at Monday's event were Elliott, Lil' Kim and Salt-N-Pepa.

The "I Ain't Even Done" singer announced Sunday that he is, in fact, done dating the Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood star. "This is the only public statement I will make about a private matter," he wrote on Instagram. "After this, I will not speak on or respond to any questions or comments on the matter. I thank everyone in advance for respecting my wishes to keep my family life private."
Omarion, 31, and Apryl, 29, are parents to son Megaa Omari, 23 months, and daughter A'mei Kazuko, 4 months.

"We continue to love and support one another and still share a common goal to remain friends while being great parents to our children."
Jones confirmed the breakup, tweeting, "Single.... the end…."

The cause of the couple's split is unknown.

They changed me forever! & Maybe I don't express my gratitude enough. I am rebuilding some things inside myself. With all that goes on in my world, I can depend on you. Because you're solid. Thank you @aprylsjones just in case you needed a reminder on how awesome of a mother you're. Looking at my time line I'am aware i could be dealing with someone way worst. Glad that's not our situation."

Video shows off duty cop kill Delrawn small in Brooklyn road rage.

Video Shows Off Duty Cop Kill Delrawn Small In Brooklyn Road Rage

The “damning” video showing an off-duty cop ewaited just one second before gunning down a motorist in a Brooklyn road-rage incident is certain to result in criminal charges, law-enforcement sources said Saturday.
Video of the July 4 incident obtained exclusively by The Post shows the victim, Delrawn Small, had just arrived at the window of Officer Wayne Isaacs’ car when Isaacs gunned him down.
Small, 37, is seen stumbling away from Isaacs’ car before he collapsed and died.
“The video is pretty damning,” a source close to the investigation said.
One police official believes a grand jury will be called in the case against Isaacs, 37, who could face a manslaughter charge.
“You’ll see some sort of charges filed,” the official said. “You have a person who is unarmed and they’re going to say the level of force used, versus force used against him, does not add up.
“When you use deadly force, there has to be some sort of grave danger to him. He can’t just say, ‘I got punched so I shot him.’ ”
Authorities are still looking for witnesses and additional video of the incident, which occurred early Monday on Atlantic Avenue and Bradford Street in East New York.
They want to talk to the driver of the car closest to the shooting, into which Small stumbled after he was shot. But the vehicle’s license plate is not readable on the video, sources said. “We’re really trying to track that person down,” the source said.
It’s unclear when charges would be brought, though one source speculated a grand jury could be convened as early as next week.
Prosecutors will want a solid case, according to retired NYPD sergeant and John Jay College of Criminal Justice professor Joseph Giacalone.
“Look what happened in Baltimore,” he said of the case against officers accused in the death of Freddie Gray, who died of injuries after being left unsecured in the back of a police van.
“If you go too fast, your whole case could be a disaster,” he said. “You better make sure you have your i’s dotted and your t’s crossed.”
The Small case is being handled by the state Attorney General’s Office, which issued a statement Friday vowing to “follow the facts and evidence — including this video evidence — wherever they lead.”
Sources said Small, who was in the car with his girlfriend, Zaquanna Albert, 35, thought the cop had cut him off on Atlantic Avenue.
Small — an ex-con with 19 prior arrests — followed Isaacs’ car for several blocks and ignored Albert’s pleas for him to stay in the car.
Small walked across two lanes of traffic to confront Isaacs, who quickly shot him.
It was originally claimed that Isaacs, who was on his way home from a shift in the 79th Precinct, was pummeled repeatedly by Small before the cop opened fire. But the video refutes that idea.
The cop, who has since been placed on administrative leave, was bleeding inside his mouth, sources said.
“Deadly physical force is supposed to be used as a last resort,” Giacalone said. “[Isaacs] could have rolled up his window. He could have backed up his car . . .
“It doesn’t appear as if he was being physically assaulted, as he was claiming. So I think this video is going to be a problem for this officer.”
The charges could vary, lawyers not involved with the case said.
“If that video tells the entire story, I would venture to say that [prosecutors] must charge that cop with a minimum of aggravated assault and definitely manslaughter,” defense attorney Charles DeStefano said.
The officer could have avoided the incident, defense lawyer Ron Kuby said.
“After looking at the video on The Post’s Web site, what I’m seeing is an off-duty police officer who easily could have avoided the confrontation by rolling up his window and continuing to drive his vehicle,” he said.
“What I’m seeing is the police officer engaging in intentional unjustifiable killing of a human being, which is known as murder.”

Jay Z talks police brutality on raw new song spiritual

World-weary Jay Z is “saddened and disappointed” that an anti-police brutality anthem he wrote years ago is still vitally needed today.
The rap mogul on Thursday released “Spiritual,” his first new music in three years, in the wake of two black men being gunned down by cops earlier that week in Baton Rouge, La., and Falcon Heights, Minn.

“I made this song a while ago, I never got to finish it,” Jay Z wrote in a statement on his streaming hisite, Tidal. “Punch (TDE) told me I should drop it when Mike Brown died, sadly I told him, ‘this issue will always be relevant.’ I’m hurt that I knew his death wouldn’t be the last...…”

The nearly four-minute-long song, available to stream on Tidal without a subscription, features a haunting hook on which Jay Z raps, “Yeah, I am not poison, no I am not poison / Just a boy from the hood that / Got my hands in the air / In despair don’t shoot / I just wanna do good, ah.”
“Spiritual” marked the rapper’s first new release since dropping his 12th studio album, “Magna Carta Holy Grail,” in July 2013.

“I’m saddened and disappointed in THIS America — we should be further along. WE ARE NOT,” he wrote in the statement. “I trust God and know everything that happens is for our greatest good, but man.... it’s tough right now.”

He went on to offer “blessings to all the families that have lost loved ones to police brutality,” capping off his message with a quote from famed abolitionist Frederick Douglass on societal oppression.

Activism is nothing new for Jay Z, whose Tidal service announced Feb. 5 — the same day slain black teen Trayvon Martin would have turned 21 — that it would donate $1.5 million from its October charity concert to the Black Lives Matter movement and other groups.

The “99 Problems” rapper’s surprise track came on the heels of Philando Castile, a cafeteria supervisor at a Montessori school in Minnesota, dying after police shot him during a traffic stop Wednesday. Just one day earlier, CD salesman Alton Sterling had been fatally shot by cops in Louisiana.

Jay Z’s wife, Beyoncé, also released a statement Thursday condemning what she called “the war on people of color and all minorities.”
“We are sick and tired of the killings of young men and women in our communities,” she wrote on her website, linking to congresspeople’s websites. “It's up to us to take a stand and demand that they 'stop killing us.’”
During a Dallas protest Thursday night in response to the police shootings, a lone gunman opened fire on cops and shot 14 people, killing at least five officers and wounding seven more, officials said.

Jaden Smith Says He Wears Skirts So Kids Won’t Get Beat Up For Doing It

Jaden Smith is skirting gender norms.
The oldest child of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith wore a dress to prom, has appeared on his own Instagram sporting nail polish, models womenswear for Louis Vuitton and he’s broken down gender barriers every step of the way.
“You just have to believe in yourself, you know,” the celebrity teen told Nylon. “The world is going to keep bashing me for whatever I do, and I’m going to keep not caring. I’m going to keep doing the same things — I’m going to keep doing more things.”

Jaden said he hopes to “take most of the blows” so others can embrace their inner-selves just as he has.
“So, you know, in five years when a kid goes to school wearing a skirt, he won’t get beat up and kids won’t get mad at him. It just doesn’t matter,” he explained to the magazine. “I’m taking the brunt of it so that later on, my kids and the next generations of kids will all think that certain things are normal that weren’t expected before my time.”
Creative director of Louis Vuitton Nicolas Ghesquière, who signed Jaden on to model his spring/summer ’16 women’s campaign earlier this year said, “Wearing a skirt comes as naturally to him as it would to a woman who, long ago, granted herself permission to wear a man’s trench or tuxedo ... He’s found an instinctive balance that makes his extraordinary attitude a new norm.”

Smith told Nylon he and the other models knew that shoot would be important.
“It was lit because we all knew that we were going to impact the culture and change the game and make a difference.”
And Jaden said all his confidence is rooted in his upbringing.
“The greatest lesson I’ve learned from my parents is to be myself, at all costs,” he said, “no matter what.”
This is Jaden ….

And this is Willow ……

Drake says he is truly scared after Alton Sterling shooting.

Hip-hop star Drake wrote a heartfelt response to the police shooting of Alton Sterling, saying that seeing graphic footage of the death left him “feeling disheartened, emotional and truly scared.”
Sterling, 37, was shot by police in Baton Rouge, La., early Tuesday morning outside a convenience store where he had been selling CDs.
Video from the scene showed that Sterling was not holding a gun, but that an officer fired at his chest as the father of five lie on the ground.
Drake, from the Toronto area, said in an Instagram post that he was “grateful to be able to call America my second home.”

However, he said “it’s impossible to ignore that the relationship between black and brown communities and law enforcement remains as strained as it was decades ago.”
Drake’s comments joined a chorus of observers including celebrities and politicians who condemned the shooting and police brutality towards minorities while calling for #JusticeForAltonSterling.

However, the rapper said that “no one begins their life as a hashtag. Yet the trend of being reduced to one continues.”
Drake added that he was concerned for the safety of his family and his friends, but believes things can “change for the better.”
New video of Alton Sterling shooting ….
Woman live streams police officer shooting her boyfriend ……

"The police officer stopped us for a busted tail light that wasn't busted," Diamond Reynolds told reporters Thursday about the traffic stop that led to the fatal shooting of her boyfriend, Philando Castile, by a police officer in Minnesota Wednesday.

As Philando Castile's head slumps backward while he lies dying next to her, Diamond Reynolds looks directly into the camera and explains that a Minnesota police officer just shot her boyfriend four times.

The nation is, by now, accustomed to grainy cell phone videos of officer-involved shootings, but this footage from Falcon Heights, outside Minneapolis, is something different, more visceral: a girlfriend live-streaming a shooting's aftermath with the police officer a few feet away, his gun still trained on her bloody boyfriend.

"He let the officer know that he had a firearm and he was reaching for his wallet and the officer just shot him in his arm," Reynolds said as she broadcast the Wednesday evening shooting on Facebook.

Castile had been pulled over for a busted taillight, Reynolds explained. He told the officer he was armed and had a concealed carry permit, she said. Her daughter, 4, is in the back seat.
As she speaks, Castile's wrists are crossed. Blood covers the bottom of his white T-shirt sleeve and a large area around his sternum and left rib cage. Perhaps in shock or agony, he peers emptily upward.

Though you can't see the St. Anthony police officer's face, you can hear the agitation in his voice as he tells Reynolds to keep her hands where he can see them.
Composed, as she remains through much of the video, Reynolds replies, "I will, sir, no worries. I will."
The officer still sounds distressed as he explains, "I told him not to reach for it. I told him to get his hand off it."
Moments later, Reynolds pleads with God and then the officer as she realizes Castile won't likely make it.
"Please don't tell me this, Lord. Please, Jesus, don't tell me that he's gone. Please don't tell me that he's gone," she said. "Please, officer, don't tell me that you just did this to him. You shot four bullets into him, sir. He was just getting his license and registration, sir."
She continues pleading outside the car as officers approach her with guns drawn. One orders her to her knees, and the phone begin filming the sky,
Clarence Castile, Philando Castile's uncle, told CNN that the family is devastated.
"We all know my nephew was a good kid, and we want justice as well as relief," he said.
The images of his nephew dying were the "most horrific thing I've ever seen in my life," Castile said Thursday morning on CNN's "New Day."
He and Valerie Castile, Philando's mother, stressed on "New Day" that Philando was law-abiding and a good person, and they expressed bitterness over the actions of the police.
"He's not an officer," Clarence Castille said. "He's just a man. An officer is supposed to protect and serve. That was a man who did that. That man is a destroyer, and he came into our lives and (has) done something and took something from us.""Please Jesus, no. Please no. Please no, don't let him be gone," she says before officers place Reynolds and her daughter in the back of the police car.
Later, at Hennepin County Medical Center, her fears were confirmed: Her 32-year-old boyfriend was gone.
Castile said that Philando was a kitchen supervisor for the St. Paul School District. The last time the two spoke was in May. They talked about setting up a nest egg for Philando's eventual retirement.
"My nephew has a (concealed carry) permit, and still got killed for carrying a gun. ... This needs to stop. This happens so often."
Valerie Castile said "they took a very good person" and wondered whether he was simply "black in the wrong place."
"Everybody that knows my son knows that he is a laid back, quiet individual that works hard every day, pays taxes and comes home and plays video games. That's it," she said. "He's not a gang banger. He's not a thug. He's very respectable. And I know he didn't antagonize that officer in any way to make him feel like his life was threatened."
She said she stressed to her son that if he ever had an encounter with police, he should "comply, comply, comply."
She said that when he got to a hospital to see her son, he was already dead and "they didn't let me see my son's body."
The mother said she hears people saying that police no longer racially profile people. She disagrees.
"We're ... hunted every day. It's a sign of war against African-American people as a whole," she said.
Sgt. Jon Mangseth, the interim chief of the St. Anthony Police Department, said there were two officers present when the shooting occurred -- a primary officer responded, who he believes has more than five years of experience, and there was also a backup officer. Having both is standard procedure for the department, which has jurisdiction over Falcon Heights.
St. Anthony police don't have body cameras, according to office manager Kim Brazil.
One officer has been placed on standard paid administrative leave, Mangseth said at a short news conference early Thursday. No police were injured.
Mangseth said he hadn't seen the video, but he knows about it. The nearly 10-minute video garnered more than 1 million views before it was pulled from Facebook. It was then re-released on the social media platform with a graphic warning.
The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension Assistance was called and is investigating the incident, Mangseth said.
"We will release the information as we learn it, and we will address concerns as we are faced with them," he said.
Mangseth told reporters that it's the first officer-involved shooting in the area in more than 30 years.
"It's shocking," he said. "It's not something that occurs in this area often."

The shooting comes just a day after an officer-involved shooting was filmed by bystanders in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

37-year-old Alton Sterling died, sparking mourning and outrage across the country.
By early Thursday, protesters had begun to gather outside Minnesota Governor's Residence.
The U.S. Justice Department released a statement saying it "is aware of the incident and is assessing the situation."

T.I restaurant employees are suing him for unpaid wages

Atlanta-based, Grammy-winning rapper T.I., who ventured into the world of restaurant ownership last year, is catching heat for his latest venture. Former employees of his downtown eatery Scales 925 are suing the recording artist, formally known as Clifford Harris Jr., for unpaid wages, reports the

Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Harris and business partner Charles Hughes are listed as defendants.
The suit was filed in the United States Northern District of Georgia on Tuesday.

Twelve plaintiffs are citing the Fair Labor Standards Act and claim they were deprived of owed wages in a number of ways. Hughes's unscrupulous business practices listed in the complaint include:

Withdrawing money from employees' paychecks to pay Georgia payroll taxes, without actually paying said taxes.

Depositing money from the restaurant into his personal bank account, causing paychecks to bounce.

Deleting overtime hours from the restaurant's payroll software and failing to compensate employees for overtime work.

Coercing employees to work off the clock for three hours "before they were allowed to go home."

The former employees are seeking a jury trial. While no specific dollar amount is listed in the complaint, they're asking for payment of lost wages and attorney fees, plus liquidated, nominal, and punitive damages.

Taylor Swift, Ray J And Amber Rose Nude Look A Likes In Kanye West Music Video ‘Famous</p>

The attention-seeking Kanye West has taken his enemies to bed.
8In 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.”

The former 'Kocktails with Khloe' host reportedly didn't want to invite Blac to the party, but changed her mind after Rob gave her an ultimatum

Blac Chyna being part of Khloe Kardashian's 32nd birthday party came as a surprise. The former "Kocktails with Khloe" host was one of Rob Kardashian's sisters who disapproved of his relationship with the pregnant model, so it's only natural for people to wonder how Blac could make the guest list.

Now, a new report has emerged claiming that Khloe originally didn't plan to invite Blac, but then changed her mind after her brother Rob gave her an ultimatum. "Rob and Khloe are as tight as a brother and sister could possibly be, but he wasn't going to her birthday party unless Blac was coming," a source told

"Khloe initially didn't want Blac to attend because she still holds a grudge against her for attacking Kylie [Jenner] and believes her intentions with Rob are not on the up and up," the source explained. "But Rob hit Khloe with that reverse psychology, telling her that, if she's all about family like she always proclaims, then she needs to respect Blac as part of the family, because in due time, she will be. Khloe budged and invited Blac."

Khloe, who lived with Rob and was super close to him before he began dating Blac, was livid when she found out her brother got engaged to the mother of one and would be a dad to another baby she's pregnant with. However, the youngest Kardashian sister looked happy when posing for a picture with the pair at her birthday party on Monday, June 27.

The other members of the Kardashian-Jenner clan also seemed to have lots of fun hanging out with Blac. She snapped some selfies with Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner, and sang karaoke with Kylie Jenner at the star-studded party at Dave & Buster's in Hollywood, California.

Prince’s Doctors Investigated By FBI And The DEA After Fentanyl Overdose

Two doctors who treated Prince before his shocking April 21 overdose are now reportedly the focus of a criminal investigation.
The FBI, DEA and Carver County District Attorney’s Office in Minnesota are probing family physician Dr. Michael Schulenberg and California addiction doctor Howard Kornfeld over meds prescribed to the late music icon, according to TMZ.

The guitar dynamo — rumored to have been struggling with hip pain for years — died on April 21, at 57, from an accidental overdose of the opioid painkiller fentanyl, the autopsy report concluded.
Schulenberg treated the late music icon at least twice in the weeks prior to his death, and said he had returned the day of Prince’s collapse to deliver test results. Kornfeld, whom Prince’s team called April 20 to set up an emergency intervention, had sent his son Andrew Kornfeld to the Grammy winner’s Paisley Park estate with the opioid addiction treatment buprenorphine.

The younger Kornfeld reportedly wound up arriving before he could administer the medication, calling 911 after he and two others discovered the singer’s lifeless body in an elevator.
Schulenberg hasn’t been seen at his Minnetonka, Minn., clinic since The Purple One’s death, TMZ reported. Howard Kornfeld, however, has reportedly continued practicing at his Mill Valley, Calif., clinic.

Man ARRESTED for impersonating a member of Kevin Hart's entourage.

This ranks among the strangest criminal charges.
A man was arraigned Thursday for impersonating a member of Kevin Hart’s entourage after using purloined credit cards to see the "Get Hard" star in Buffalo last year, according to local TV station WKBW.
Leland Burks, 55, reportedly pretended to be part of Hart’s inner circle — and booked enough hotel rooms in Buffalo that he eventually ran up a tab of nearly $13,000, said acting District Attorney Michael Flaherty.
The charlatan had just finished serving time on unrelated charges in Alabama, was extradited to New York to face these charges.
After entering a plea of not guilty, Burks was taken to jail to await trial.
Burks faces up to 14 years in prison if convicted of two counts of identity theft and one count to defraud.

Chris Brown Kicked Out Of Ibiza Villa After Cops Find Urine And Vomit Everywhere

Urine trouble again, Chris Brown.
Police kicked the "Look at Me Now" singer out of an Ibiza villa for peeing and vomiting all over the property, TMZ reports.

The 27-year-old has been soaking up the sun on the Spanish island for the past week, where he was photographed riding quad bikes and lounging with bikini-clad babes by the pool.

But the villa landlord reportedly called in the cops after Brown refused to leave at check-out time. And to add insult to tardiness, the house was supposedly trashed.

The police report alleges that the walls were carved with knives, a bed was soaked in urine, and there was vomit everywhere.
The landlord also complained that Brown is on the hook for $26,000 in rent, adding up to $60,000 including the damages.

A source close to Brown told TMZ that the artist footed the bill after clearing up a financial issue between the villa owner and the bank.

But Brown can’t seem to stay out of the crosshairs lately. He was caught on camera throwing a girl’s cell phone and kicking her out of the VIP section of an Italian club last week.

His rep Nicole Perna dropped the troubled star after an angry barrage of texts that were leaked this week, where Brown called her a “b-h” after she told him that Anna Wintour and other editors don’t want anything to do with him and his “st.”
And the “Loyal” singer is facing lawsuits from both Suge Knight and his former manager Mike “Mike G” Guirguis.
Sounds like a Mayweather night ……

New Music: Joe Budden - Making A Murderer Pt. 1 (Drake & Meek Mill Diss)

Joe Budden is ready for war. After teasing and much talk on social media about wanting to spar lyrically with Drake and Meek Mill, the Slaughterhouse MC decides to back up the talk. Released on Thursday (Jun. 30), Joey liberates a new record titled “Making A Murderer Pt. 1.” On the araabMUZIK-produced track, a diss record, Budden fires vicious rhymes at Drake. Jumpoff Joe also takes time to throw subliminals at MMG’s Meek Mill and touches on past issues with JAY Z.
Back in May on his podcast show, the Slaughterhouse MC accused Drake of sounding “uninspired” on his chart-topping album VIEWS. “I think that that kid on that album that I heard sounds real Fuckin ’ uninspired,” said Budden. “That music sounds good and I enjoy it. I played that album all the way to D.C. and all the way back multiple times. 40 you sound amazing. 40 continues to progress. Drake you do not. I said the other day on this podcast I miss the Drake that starts the waves, not hops on other waves and I’ll say it again: I miss the Drake that pushes the FKN’ agenda, not lets the agenda push him.”

Weeks later, French Montana posted a preview his upcoming single “No Shopping” featuring Drake on Snapchat. In the clip, Drizzy raps the words “pump, pump it up,” referring to Joe’s 2003 “Pump It Up.” The quick audio lead many to speculate that the face of OVO is dissing Joe Budden on the soon to be released song off Montana’s MC4 album.

Boosie Badazz Says TV Is ‘Trying To Make Everybody F--king Gay’

Rapper Boosie Badazz is trying to complain away the gay.

The Louisiana-born musician fumed in a recent interview that gay characters on television were “forcing” kids to be homosexual — boldly estimating that nearly half the population would be gay in just 10 years time.

“They’re trying to make everybody fking gay,” the rapper, whose real name is Torrence Hatch, told DJ Vlad.

“Six or 7-year-olds, 5-year-olds shouldn’t be turned on to gay cartoons when their mind (is) not even developed yet,” he added. “Now you’re forcing them to be gay.”
The 33-year-old, formerly known as Lil Boosie, reportedly posted a since-deleted Instagram tirade late last year blasting shows like “Empire” and “Love & Hip Hop” for including homosexual storylines.

As he doubled down on those sentiments this week, he insisted he didn’t hate gay people “at all” — but still harked back to the golden age of TV shows being on the straight and narrow.

“It wasn’t like that when I was coming up,” he said. “The Ninja Turtles wasn’t kissing ... They didn’t have two men on ‘The Flintstones’ kissing. ‘The Jetsons’ wasn’t kissing.”

“I say in 10 years, you’re going to have damn near half the population gay because of what they put on TV,” he added. “It’s because how they’re forcing it.”

Boosie’s conspiracy theory went all the way to the top, as he speculated television execs were merely peddling gay stories “for monetary gain.”

And when asked by his interviewer how he would react to one of his own kids — he has at least seven — coming out as gay, the rapper offered up a wealth of parenting wisdom.

“First, I’m gonna try to slap his a-- back straight. I’m gonna kick his a--, and maybe he’ll realize that he’s not gay,” he said.“But if I can’t stop him from being gay, I’m not going to ban my son from my life. I’ll just have to find some crazy-a
way to deal with it.”
