The surviving children of Dr. Martin Luther King and Coretta Scott King are at war over the sale of Dr. King's Bible and Nobel Peace Prize Medal. Read Bernice King's statement about the lawsuit and preserving the MLK legacy inside...
As we celebrate Black History Month (which should actually be an EVERYDAY occurrence), it's unfortunate that the surviving children of Dr. King and Coretta (Martin III, Dexter and Bernice) are at war. Again.
Apparently, the MLK estate is cash-strapped and the brothers (representing the estate) has decided to sue Bernice. They want Bernice to relinquish possession of Dr. King's Bible (the same Bible that President Barack Obama used to take his oath) and his Nobel Peace Prize so they may be sold to a private collector. Their lawsuit claims that the items that Martin Luther King Jr.’s heirs assigned their rights to property inherited from the civil rights icon to the Estate of Martin Luther King Jr. Inc. in 1995 and Bernice King has “secreted and sequestered” the medal and Bible in violation of that agreement. Got that?
Bernice King is upset about the lawsuit and released this statement,
Speak on it. Can a price be put on the legacy and possessions of Dr. Martin Luther King...if the family is in need of money?

Ashanti just released yet another cover for her upcoming album Braveheart. Check it inside, plus a new video from Jason Derulo and news about Pharrell....
She previously released a different cover, but now, a new version of Ashanti's Braveheart album just hit Amazon. It's giving us fragrance ad-tease, but it's pretty nonetheless.
The upcoming album, which will supposedly be released early 2014, will likely feature Rick Ross, Future, R. Kelly, Beenie Man, and Busta Rhymes.
Jason Derulo has a new cutesy video just in time for Valentine's Day. His single "Stupid Love" got the romantic video treatment (sans girlfriend Jordin Sparks), all shot by Gil Green. And it's the latest visual off his album Tattoos out now. Check it below:
Jordin did comment about the vid saying, "This song is so heartfelt. Took my breath away when @jasonderulo 1st played it for me." Awwww.
And there's big news for Pharrell. Fresh of his new track "Move The Dope" with Future and Pusha T, The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced Tuesday that Oscar nominee Skateboard P will be performing at this year's Academy Awards.
P and his park ranger hat will be performing his nominated song (in the Best Original Song category) "Happy", which was written and produced for the animated film Despicable Me 2.
It all goes down March 2nd at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood. Good Luck Pharrell!

Rapper DMX will be hitting the ring with George Zimmerman for a celebrity boxing match. Weigh in on this ish inside....
In a desperate act to make money, Georger Zimmerman, who was found NOT GUILTY of murdering Trayvon Martin, will participate in a celebrity boxing match against DMX. George named plenty of celebs (who were mostly black men) whom he wanted to box. Let that sink in.
When celebrity boxing promoter Damon Feldman first announced plans to bring George to the ring, he received 15,000 applicants whom all wanted to put a pounding on George. DMX emerged as the winner. But is it really a win?
DMX told TMZ, "I am going to beat the living f**k out him … I am breaking every rule in boxing to make sure I f**k him right up." TMZ reports he then said he's literally piss on George's face.
The match will last 3 rounds, and reports say 30-year-old Zimmerman has been training pretty hard for months. Meanwhile, 43-year-old DMX has only been known for getting arrested the past few months.
George will reportedly have security on hand to prevent anyone from "getting out of hand".
The date, time, and location of the fight will be announced at a news conference next Wednesday. Is this a train wreck we're all waiting to watch? Not us.
By the way, today would have Trayvon's 19th birthday.
[UPDATE] There is now a petition floating around to "Stop George Zimmerman and Promoter Damon Feldman from using murder & racial hate in America for Profit".
Now that you are aware of the boxing match with "objective" information, we encourage folks to sign this. The text is below and you can sign HERE.
