TMZ is reporting that Lil Wayne is in critical condition and being prepared for his last rites.
On the other hand Mack Maine and Birdman are on Twitter saying TMZ is lying and Lil Wayne is alive and well.
Who are you to believe? I hope that Lil Wayne is fine and the story from TMZ is overblown. However history has shown that TMZ has excellent credibility with stories involving the LAPD and LA area hospitals. Either way, prayers go out for Lil Wayne’s recovery.
Update: Lil Wayne was released from the hospital several days after his hospitalization. His camp consistently refuted the severity of Lil Wayne’s condition as reported by TMZ.
Remember the reports about Janet Jackson and her beau planning a $20 million wedding? Well Janet Jackson just released a statement refuting those rumors as well as announcing she is happily married.
The rumours regarding an extravagant wedding are simply not true. Last year we were married in a quiet, private, and beautiful ceremony. Our wedding gifts to one another were contributions to our respective favourite children’s charities. We would appreciate that our privacy is respected and that we are allowed this time for celebration and joy. With love, Wissam and Janet”
Well alrighty then! Congratulations are in order for Ms. Janet and her new husband. Can we all agree that nobody is better at getting married under the radar than Janet? Some might argue that Beyonce is better but even though we never got an official statement or pics from the wedding everybody knew it was happening.
I’m going to call Janet’s play a touchdown for outsmarting the gossip and putting those old rumors to rest. Best of luck to Janet and Wissam!
P.S. I’m loving Janet’s throwback Justice braids! Decades after popularizing the style she is showing us she still got it!
Yesterday the rumor mill was buzzing that Love & Hip Hop Atlanta’s Mimi Faust and K. Michelle were in a backstage altercation at K. Michelle’s BB Kings New York concert.
Supposedly Mimi Faust was upset that K. Michelle said she believes Mimi’s new boyfriend Niko is on the “down low” during a Power 105 Breakfast Club radio interview. Rumor has it that Mimi and K exchanged words about K’s comments which ended with K. Michelle slapping Mimi in the face. Given K. Michelle’s admitted temper issues that wasn’t a stretch to believe. Of course Mediatakeout had to take the rumor a step further and claim that Mimi was rushed to the hospital due to a ruptured ear drum. Ok now that is a stretch to believe.
Considering that both K. Michelle and Mimi don’t let much slide I figured it was only a matter of time before the matter was addressed. Today Mimi and K. Michelle released dueling statements about what really went down.
Here is an excerpt from Mimi’s PR statement
Ms. Faust is currently unharmed and never went to the hospital to be treated for a busted eardrum. The incident started in the dressing room where K. Michelle simply hit Ms. Faust with flowers after seeming a little irritated with questions about earlier statements made in a prior interview.
Mimi added that K. Michelle’s response to issues is always “violent”. Kind of hard to argue with her there.
K. Michelle had this to say on Twitter:
You should not have brought your skinny ass 2my show talking crazy 2me. U got popped. U can’t get mad cuz I think ur boyfriend is down low.
Perhaps she “popped” Mimi with flowers or she could have slapped her like the rumor mill suggested. Either way, I’m calling out K. Michelle for Unsportsmanlike Conduct. There are dozens of ways to handle a situation where someone is talking crazy that don’t need to involve violence. Also, even if she is privy to knowledge about Mimi’s boyfriend Niko’s sexuality it isn’t her business to go on the radio and discuss it. Damn near every black man being accused of being gay is getting played out anyway, be more creative in 2013. Based on what I know I’m not blowing the whistle on Mimi but I suggest she grows thicker skin about what people say about her boyfriend.
Mediatakeout is one of those websites I truly despise. They are notorious for taking a story and running with it (if not totally making ish up)…so it was no surprise when this morning they ran a story from a woman claiming to have slept with Dwyane Wade. To throw extra salt on the wound the letter included some digs at Gabrielle.
Also Gabrielle you are a little to old to be making Valentines day Photo albums. Leave that to the young girls your man cheats on you with. Dont believe me, i took a picture of the picture.
Mediatakeout claims that the picture the person is referring to is an explicit pic of Gabrielle in red lingerie. However since they declined to include the picture we are supposed to take their word for it the picture really exists.
Claims like this are made constantly so I didn’t really pay it too much mind. However, much to my surprise a website (TheYBF) I actually have come to respect as a more responsible source of gossip ran a story on Gabrielle Union’s response to the story. Expecting some subliminal tweet that really doesn’t address anything I actually got the complete opposite. Directly from Gabrielle’s twitter page was a clear rebuttal to the MTO groupie.
Here is what Gabrielle had to say:
Dear Batsh%t crazy loon, u seemed to have forgotten that u used the “valentine” pic on another blog last year when u claimed I was cheating. Take ur meds…
Which got me to thinking…what blog and Valentine picture is she referring to? Certainly if such a blog exists with the same story it is still out there. After a little digging I found a reference to the blog using presumably the same “red lingerie photo” supposedly sent to MTO and a story about a sexy photo album allegedly made by Gabrielle.
Here is an excerpt:
The football player, a member of the Giants’ offense, was confronted by his fiance after she found a book full of intimate pictures of Gabrielle Union in lingerie and very sexy positions. The fiance initially thought the collection of pics was something her man had put together on his own, but upon further inspection, she realized that these were not published photos, leading her to believe that he could have only gotten from Gabrielle herself. The photos were all accompanied by private notes to the NFL baller.
He allegedly admitted to his fiance that he had in fact been cheating and that the book of intimate pics had been a gift from Gabrielle.
The claims about Gabrielle no doubt sound incredibly familiar. And the fact that the blog written Oct 2011 includes a picture of Gabrielle in red lingerie it seems to support Gabrielle’s claim that this story is recycled except with a different twist of now accusing Dwyane Wade of cheating instead of Gabrielle. A cynic might say that Gabrielle makes a habit out of making sexy photo albums and sending them to her lovers; but I find it much more plausible that whoever wrote the letter to MTO (giving MTO the benefit of the doubt that they actually received a letter from someone) is just too lazy and unimaginative to come up with an original cheating story.
So what’s the call on the play? Personal foul for the MTO groupie and Touchdown for Gabrielle Union.
To borrow a line from Gabrielle:
Once again…just cuz loons are talkin, u aint got to listen especially when they can’t keep their lies straight…
And that my friends is exactly why I am here.
