Lil Boosie Addresses His Daughter’s Instagram Video, “I Didn’t Know She Had It In Her”

Lil Boosie is speaking out about the Instagram video that went viral of his daughter using choice words as she announced her dead was getting out of prison. Find out what he had to say inside…

After news hit that Lil Boosie was going to be released from prison, there was viral social media praising Boosie for his return. He'd been locked up since 2009 on drug charges.

In an Instagram video (below), one of Lil Boosie’s daughters expressed how excited she was that her father was coming home, but the words she chose to express her happiness raised more than a few eyebrows.
 

When asked how he felt about the video, Boosie said he didn’t punish her because she had to deal with being teased that he was never going to get out of jail.

He told AllHipHop:

I was too happy to fuss. You know, after that I told her I didn’t want her saying the word. But, she was one of those that went through ‘your daddy ain’t coming home’, ‘yo daddy this’ in schools and such. So, I think it was just..when I called her and told her I was coming home, I think it was all the stuff she went through coming out. I didn’t know she had it in her. [Laughs]

This little girl was talking like she did a bid herself....

Phaedra Parks Becomes New Xenadrine Ambassador, Does Post-Baby Body Photoshoot + Porsha Williams ALLEGEDLY Dating Son Of African Dictator

"RHOA" star Phaedra Parks has announced an endorsement deal with the diet pill Xenadrine.  Get the deets and her new photoshoot pics inside.  Plus, find out if Porsha Williams is pulling a page from Kenya Moore's book with who she's allegedly now dating...

 

 photo xenap4.png

Phaedra Park is crediting Xenadrine diet pills with helping her get her "Donkey Booty" back in tip top post-baby shape.  A spokesman for the company announced that Phaedra has signed on as a "Xenadrine ambassador" after Pha Pha found success with the brand's weight loss formula.

Not sure how we feel about folks pushing diet pills, but chick needs that check for all these legal woes as of late.

 photo xenap3.png

In a press release, The "Secrets Of A Southern Belle" author credits the product with giving her an "extra boost of energy" for her workouts and cardio sessions.

Congrats to Phaedra for landing a new gig!.  We imagine Apollo's legal bills and receipts from her own defamation suit must be eating up her "RHOA" money.

 

In other "RHOA" news....

"Flatlline" singer Porsha Williams may have a new boyfriend....and he's rich!

 photo paris1-popup.jpg

Do NOT make us address the obvious in this pic....do NOT make us do it.....

According to TMZ, Porsha has been dating 42-year-old Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue (above), son of Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, President of Equatorial Guinea.  Teodoro is reportedly VERY RICH, but his money might be "dirty."

Reports suggest that his father is one of Africa's most brutal and corrupt rulers and has taken a large portion of the country's oil wealth for himself while many of the nation's citizens live in poverty.  Also, words like "torture" and "execution" are often associated with President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo.

Umm.....this all sounds messy, dangerous and WAY over Porsha's head. We hope she did a thorough Google search and know's what she's getting into.  She better ask Kenya Moore how she went about her research...

And, it appears this is the same man who rapper Eve was linked to back in 2005.

Looks like Usher is getting more comfortable with letting the world know (finally) that Grace Miguel is more than just his employee.  Pics of the two chillin' in Panama inside, plus Trey Songz's sexy new video that takes it to the gym....

While "The Voice" judge Usher is filming his new Hands of Stone movie, he's been traveling back and forth to Panama.  And he and his boo Grace Miguel snapped a few pics while there.

Something about him is still so sexy.  Just sayin'...

 

And speaking of sexy:

 

Trigga takes it to a hot & sweaty gym for his latest video, "Na Na".  He and his girl are walking the streets in the Gil-Green directed clip before she wants to go into a jewelry store.  Once she tells him she "wants to get engaged," Trey freaks out a bit...until he finds out what "engaged" really means.

The fitness queen takes him to an underground gym to engage in some sexy workout routines...that cause them to exchange sweat and more.  Oh, and for our fellow "Total Divas" fans, the Bella Twins make a cameo!

The track will appear on his upcoming sixth studio album titled Trigga, with a tentative release date of June 30th.

Jay Z and Kanye West (The Throne) rocked the stage at this year’s SXSW down in Austin, TX thanks to Samsung.

Giant tech-company Samsung gave out wristbands only to owners of Galaxy devices who had downloaded the radio app Milk Music. The Galaxy Experience pop-up location distributed the wristbands on Tuesday starting at 10AM. Each fan was given a blue wristband band and was allowed to +1 to the event. Fun times!
 

The doors to the Austin Music Hall opened at 9pm but hours before the concert started, anticipating fans were lined up for blocks to make sure they saw The Throne touch the stage.

Jay and Kanye performed N*ggas In Paris three times, and rocked out with most songs from WTT and a few classics.  Check out the videos above (several performance sin the playlist).

Before hitting the stage...

Kanye, Jay Brown (above) and Nas hit the 3rd Annual Live Nation/Roc Nation Raptor House in Austin, a place where top executives, thought leaders and influencers can entertain and be entertained.

Kanye was also spotted backstage at Def Jam’s 30th anniversary party/concert held Tuesday night at Stubb’s BBQ restaurant. There were performances by 2 Chainz, Pusha T, YG and more Def Jam artists.

Yeezy snapped a pic with 2 Chainz, President/COO of Island Def Jam Music Group Steve Bartel and Chairman & CEO of The Island Def Jam Music Barry Weiss.

Ye' was in really good spirits, which doesn't happen that often, snapping photos with fans also:

Nice!

 

BONUS: In sad news, a driver at SXSW broke through a barricade around midnight last night.  And after running into patrons, his actions claimed the lives of 2, while leaving 5 in critical condition, 3 in serious, and 13 others transported to area hospitals.  The driver, very possibly intoxicated, attempted to flee the scene, but was apprehended by Austin police.  Tyler The Creator cancelled his show due to the tragedy.

Ashanti Is All Smiles Strolling Through Beverly Hills + Her Stalker THROWN Out Of Court For Getting Testy With Judge

Posted: 12 Mar 2014 05:03 PM PDT

 photo bhashatni1.jpeg

Singer Ashanti took a stroll through Beverly Hills while her stalker was thrown out of a courtroom in NY. Check out the pics and deets inside…

Ashanti was spotted all smiles while walking through Beverly Hills today.  The fab chick and her blonde bob enjoyed the sunny California day in a plaid button-up shirt with a gray midriff top underneath, distressed jeans, black studded boots and Chanel handbag.
 

 photo bhaanti2.jpeg

Is that Momager hiding her face?

Ashanti has been trekking across the U.S. promoting her new album BraveHeart and has been opening up about her off-again and “seemingly” on-again relationship with Nelly. We recently spotted the “I Got It” singer celebrating at her album release party with her ex(?) Nelly via Facetime.

Mmmhmm…
 

Meanwhile over in New York…

 photo Ashanti-stalker.jpg

Ashanti’s alleged stalker, Devar Hurd, was kicked out of a Manhattan Supreme Court after he went off on the judge.  He said there’s a conflict of interest and is demanding a new judge to preside over his case.

According to the NY Daily News, the 35-year old fitness trainer told the judge:

“You know I didn’t do nothin’. Why are you not honoring the simple fact of what's going on? Isn't that part of your job?”
 

Devar was accused of stalking Ashanti, her mom Tina Douglas and little sister Shia back in 2009. He was convicted and served three years behind bars. But that didn’t stop him from continuing to contact Ashanti. He then started sending the “BraveHeart” singer explicit pics of his genitals.

After the judge asked his attorney for the alleged new batch text messages, Devar told the judge:

“I want to switch judges. You're talking about text messages. There are no text messages.”

He added, “You're talking about emails. There are no emails.”

 

The judge had enough of Devar’s ranting and had him escorted out of the courtroom.

His next court appearance is on April 15th.  Sir, get your life!

Posted: 12 Mar 2014 04:24 PM PDT

Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran are separated, but he stills holds a place for her in his heart. See his tweet inside and hear what great things Mekhi Phifer said about ex-wife Malinda Williams...

 

Although their romance has ended (for now), Chris Brown publically expressed his love and affection for ex-Karrueche Tran on Twitter,

 photo hub8grh.png

The tweet comes after Kae's announcment about their split on twitter and unconfirmed rumors that Rihanna's "secret" visit to his rehab facility led to their split.

In the meantime.....

 photo 6def7402a8f311e391e212b3df39af67_8.jpg

Karrueche is making the most of the single life in LA.  She and bestie Christina Milian took a "twerk class" together recently.  Gotta keep the skills up for the next one...

 

In other break-ups......

 

Earlier, Mekhi Phifer chopped it up with The Breakfast Club about his new role in the film Divergent (Match 21st) and his relationship with ex-wife Malinda Williams ("Soul Food").  Mekhi (who's now married to Reshelet Barnes), talked about being married to Malinda during his younger days in Hollywood (he was 24-years-old) for a little over a year. 

He said the Hollywood lifestyle infiltrated their relationship and they wound up not speaking to one another and living separate lives.  Now....things between the ex-couple (who have a son together) have changed.  At the (22:58 mark) he says, "We're good peoples.  We're happily divorced. We're better off as friends."

Darren Sharper Charged With Sexual Assualt Of TWO MORE WOMEN....In Arizona

Posted: 12 Mar 2014 03:05 PM PDT

 photo DarrenSharperWeeklyBuckethijbbR72IGvl_zpsc40c1724.jpg

The level of GROSS has hit an all time high when it comes to this guy.  Darren Sharper has been charged with sexually assaulting more women, this time in the state of Arizona.  Details inside...

After being accused of raping two women in California, and then being officially charged (pictured above in an L.A. court room last month), more women are coming forward about Darren's alleged disgusting actions.

Today, the former Saints NFL player was charged with at least 2 counts of sexual assault based on claims that he raped the two women this past November.  Darren's also being charged with administering dangerous drugs (supposedly used to knock out his victims). TMZ states:

The Maricopa County Attorney's Office tells us ... Tempe detectives submitted the case to a grand jury, which decided there was enough evidence to charge Sharper with a crime.

As we previously reported, cops say ... two women claim Sharper drugged their drinks and sexually assaulted them at their apartment on November 20th.

Cops say they recovered the cup Sharper used to serve one of the women ... and it tested positive for traces of Ambien ... the drug Sharper allegedly used to knock out his victims.

AZ officials tell us Sharper has been charged with 2 counts of sexual assault and 3 counts of administering dangerous drugs.

Ugh.  We'll be updating the story as more details become available.

Lupita Hugs It Out With Her Stylist For The Hollywood Reporter's 'Most Powerful Stylists' Issue

Posted: 12 Mar 2014 02:39 PM PDT

 photo lupita-nyongo-hugs-her-stylist-for-thrs-25-powerful-stylists-issue-kristen-stewart-more-06_zps31f1f11c.jpg

Lupita Nyong'o became the newest fashion IT girl not by happenstance, but because she and her stylist Michaela are a dream team, of sorts.  Check out why the Oscar winner and her Non-Stop co-star Michelle Dockery (that's Lady Mary to our fellow "Downton Abbey fans") are rocking the cover of The Hollywood Reporter...

Lupita and her stylist Macaela Erlanger have taken the fashion world by storm.  So the stylist found herself atop the 25 Most Powerrful Stylists list in the new issue of THR.

Interestingly, Lupita's co-star Michelle Dockery introduced her to Micaela while they were filming Non-Stop, as Michelle is also a client.  And the rest is history.  The gorgeous YBF chick said about the cover:

My fabulous stylist Micaela Erlanger and her muses on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter! So proud of her! @houseoferlanger @theladydockers #ThreesCompany

 photo lupita-nyongo-hugs-her-stylist-for-thrs-25-powerful-stylists-issue-kristen-stewart-more-07_zpsd2e41607.jpg

28-year-old Micaela, who graduated from the Parsons The New School for Design with her BA in Design and Management, dished on her collaboration with Lupita this Awards season saying:

"It’s been a whirlwind, that’s for sure...It’s the little touches that a stylist can do that can take an actress from being part of the pack into really standing out...Stardom is often built around fashion.”

“I think the moment that really changed the game was her in the red Ralph Lauren gown.  That, to me, really solidified her as an icon, as a star.”

Agreed!  Kerry Washington and her stylist also made the list.  Check out THR for more.

By the way, reports now state that Somali rapper K'Naan really may be Lupita's new man.  We've heard the rumor for a few months now, and the rumor mill flipped into high gear when the two were spotted hugging it out the morning after the Oscars.  But many thought they were maybe just friends...especially since K'Naan was believed to be married.

But, Us Weekly now states K'Naan is divorced.  And he and Lupita are a new item...but pretty low key about it all.  A source told the mag Lupita hasn't yet met his two kids because they are "taking it slow". 

We're keping our eyes on these two....

So it seems since Bobbi Kristina (Houston) Brown Gordon turned 21, she and her husband Nick Gordon are living it up and tweeting their every move.

Bobbi Kris recently posted a picture of herself poolside in a bikini (above) and after doing so, she received a lot of harsh social media backlash for supposedly looking "too skinny" and unhealthy.

Bobbi addressed her critics saying:

Mariah Carey is getting in some “me time” in between recording tracks at the studio all night for her upcoming album.

The “You're Mine (Eternal)" singer posted flicks of her in a red bikini enjoying some time in the pool with an ocean view...somewhere much warmer than NYC.

AFTERNOON INSPIRATION: ESPN Analyst Stuart Scott Heroically BATTLES Cancer For The Third Time

Posted: 12 Mar 2014 10:51 AM PDT

 photo StuartScott1.jpg

ESPN anchor Stuart Scott has revealed he’s battling cancer for the third time. Find out how he’s coping with his diagnosis and his inspirational will to live inside…

Sports fans have watched ESPN commentator Stuart Scott on television for years.  He became a familiar personality on ESPN’s “Sports Center” and on the network’s NFL and NBA programming after being hired back in 1993.

And over the last few years, viewers have witnessed the very obvious decline in his health.  And despite appearing to be on the comeback trail, it seems his health has taken another it.  Stuart revealed he is battling cancer for the third time back in January, but he is not letting it take over his life.
 

 photo StuartScott2.jpg

The 48-year-old sports analyst was diagnosed in 2007 with cancer of the appendix while undergoing an appendectomy, which is the surgical removal of the vermiform appendix. Stuart underwent chemotherapy and everything seemed fine.

Then in 2011, doctors found tumors in his small intestine. He underwent surgery and chemotherapy and was cancer free up until now.

Stuart has had 58 infusions of chemotherapy but that has not stopped him from returning to ESPN.  He spoke to the NY Times in depth about his battle.

“I never ask what stage I’m in,” he said recently over lunch. “I haven’t wanted to know. It won’t change anything to me. All I know is that it would cause more worry and a higher degree of freakout. Stage 1, 2 or 8, it doesn’t matter. I’m trying to fight it the best I can.”
 

 photo ScottStuart3.jpg

Stuart doesn’t like to talk about his cancer diagnosis and puts on as if he’s unaffected by the diagnosis. He revealed he is using mixed martial arts and high-intensity cross-training workouts to restore the energy that chemotherapy sucks out of him.  Yes, high intensity training to get the very body that is under attack by both cancer and the chemo, into tip top shape.  Definitely a fighter.

The TV personality even considered experimental treatment saying:

“We’ve talked about doing a clinical study,” he said, “which I might do at some point. We’re going to see what happens with this new drug. And I guess I could go back to my old regimen. There is some evidence that it did some help, but chemotherapy is not an exact medical science. I heard an oncologist say that in the world of oncology, two and two doesn’t equal four, it equals five or six or three.”

Stuart has two daughters who at one point asked a lot of questions about his diagnosis but now choose not to talk about it.

“I know they worry about it,” he said, “probably more than I want them to.”

Check out the full story where he's the proudest dad on earth while watching one of his daughters singing. Stay strong Stuart!
