LeBron James is set to stack $30 million from the sell of BEATS headphones. Find out how inside, plus Michael Jordan just nabbed BILLIONAIRE status....
Bron Bron may be having a rough time during these NBA Finals, but his bank account surely isn't. ESPN reports that Mr. James is about to make a $30 million profit (in cash and stocks) off the sell of BEATS headphones to Apple....and all he did was wear them.
Now THIS is a boss move. Signing an equity deal for a product you're probably going to wear anyway, where you in turn have some type of ownership in the product you promote. And even with striking a deal for just 1% of the company....dude just made $11 million more than his Miami Heat salary. Congrats!
Speaking of money makers, Michael Jordan just made a major business move that seems to have nabbed him that billionaire status. Forbes reports that all of MJ's NBA team (Hornets) owning moves and his sneaker moves have paid off. Especially his latest.

Trina and Kelis were both in NYC yesterday, performing their classics and promoting new projects. And looking extra glittery while doing so. See the ladies inside and watch Trina's throwback to her majorette days......
Trina appeared on "106 & Park" yesterday, in a super ruffled top we're not loving, where she celebrated the 15th anniversary of the release of her debut album Da Baddest B*tch. Don't act like you weren't blasting that album daily when it dropped. We surely were.
Trina talked about her upcoming album and also revealed that she's working on a new fragrance (she hasn't named it yet).
In honor of "Throwback Thursday" Trina paid homage to her days as a majorette in high school. Trina was captain of the majorettes (she twirled for two years) and during her segment, she showed that she still has baton skills!
Later on, she changed into an outfit full of glitter and hit the stage to perform some "throwback" hits. If you whispered to yourself that her entire career is a throwback, stop it! *snickers*
Watch Trina's amazing baton routine and her performance:
Also in NYC......
Last night, Kelis made a surprise appearance at a party thrown by SMIRNOFF Vodka and Spotify. Dubbed the ‘Ultimate House Party’ and held at Gary’s Loft, Kelis hit the stage to perform songs from her latest album and her new track “Bounce” featuring Calvin Harris.
Kelis rocked a Jeremy Scott sequined dress for the occasion. She's looking good these days.
Tonight, Friday June 13th, she'll perform at the iconic Webster Hall.

Gorgeous YBF chick Sanaa Lathan has a stalker, and he's gone as far as breaking into her home! Read the crazy story about him falling asleep in her laundry room inside...
Best Man Holiday star Sanaa Lathan is being stalked by a man who's under the impression that they're married! She does have the effect on folks. But get this...her "imaginary" husband broke into her home AND went to sleep!
Last Friday, Sanaa took out a restraining order on 28-year-old Shawn Caples, after contractors found him asleep in her laundry room. Hmmm...was he looking for panties?
They sent him on him way...but he came back later...once Sanaa was home. She reportedly yelled at him, "get the f*** out of here" before calling the cops.
He came back 3 days later and Sanaa was forced to hid in fear! Shawn is behind bars now (arrested for stalking, according to TMZ) and has been ordered to stay at least 100 yards away from Sanaa once's he's released.
Fame is NOT for the weak chile...

"Love & War" singer Tamar Braxton thrilled her ATL fans with a standing room only concert last night before hooking up with her girls at the TLAM2 premiere afterparty. See pics inside...
"The One" songstress Tamar Braxton and her "Love And War" Tour rolled through Atlanta last night where she performed at the Tabernacle.
During a recent interview with UPSCALE, Tamar revealed that her musical success has had a positive impact on her relationship with her husband/manager Vince Herbert, causing them to communicate more.
In the audience....
Clearly ignoring the advice of her mother-in-law, Tiny Harris is still in dem streets. Without her husband.
Tamar's BFF Tiny and The OMG girls were in the audience rooting for her and cheering her on. Tamar and Tiny have seen a lot of each other over the past few days as they also partied at Buckhead's Bottle Bar a few days ago.
Tamar's sisters Towanda and Trina came out to show their support. Trina's hubby Gabe was also there. It looks like he's officially won her back. No divorce after all?
After the concert......
The ladies jetted over to Suite Lounge to hang with a few other celebs at the TLAM2 premiere after party. "Married 2 Medicine" star Lisa Nicole Cloud was among the partygoers.

Cops in Miami have cleared Colin Kaepernick of any wrongdoing in a sexaul assault case filed against him. Find out why authorities say he's innocent and see his response inside...
Colin Kaepernick will NOT face any charges stemming from a sexual assault case filed against him and two other NFL players in Miami, FL.
A few months ago, we told you about a woman claiming she smoked weed with the men and was intimate with Colin that night, yet "sex" did not occur. Then she said she blacked out and ended up in the hospital. Now, The Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office has announced that Colin has been "exceptionally cleared."
In official documents obtained by TMZ Sports, prosecutors determined, "There is no evidence to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that any crime was committed against the complaintant."
Colin responded to the good news saying,
And get this, investigators noted that the woman "could" have been under the influence of bath salts. SMH.......

As if we didn't already have the biggest crush ever on the sexiness that is Michael Ealy. We caught up with the blue-eyed Think Like A Man Too star at this week's premiere in Miami....and he told us the cutest Father's Day wish ever.
Check it inside...
TheYBF.com was on the scene of the Miami premiere of TLAM2 this week, and we just had to talk to Michael Ealy about this surprise son, Elijah, he sprung on the world during an interview earlier this year.
As for what he's looking forward to this Father's Day, he said the cutest thing that totally made us melt.
Oh, we have toys too Michael. Nevermind.
When asked about his favorite parts of fatherhood, he dished to us:
Michael also starred in another relationship rom-com flick this year, About Last Night. And if you're wondering about his take on the Venus vs. Mars schools of thought when it comes to the battle of the sexes, he believes you MUST take the time to understand the opposite sex.
Can this man teach a class somewhere, please?
Think Like A Man Too hits theaters June 20th!
Posted: 12 Jun 2014 01:03 PM PDT
The stars of Think Like A Man Too are making some serious promo rounds this week. They're jetting to a different state everyday, and the buzz for the flick is off the charts.
Check out the cast and Romany Malco at last night's ATL premiere at the Regal Cinemas & afterparty at The Suite Lounge with The Braxtons, the stars of "LAHH: ATL", Ludacris & Eudoxiee, and more...
Hot mama LaLa Anthony rocked a curve hugging little black dress for her umpteenth stop on the TLAM2 promo tour. Loving this blonde bob, and the shoes are perfection.
Star Romany Malco posed it up with a white hot LeToya Luckett at the premiere.
And Ludacris and girlfriend Eudoxiee arrived holding hands.
And stpped to pose it up together on the carpet.
Cute look for Eudoxiee.
And LeToya looked cute as always in a casually chic white look and gold Louboutins.
The besties posed it up together.
And Tamar Braxton was nearby showing y'all she's gotten snatched since having the baby:
"The Real" co-host had a show earlier in the night, but made an arrival tot he afterparty with her man Vince.
Comedian Deray Davis was there to help his homies celebrate:
And R.Kelly looked like he woke up in 1994 and hit this carpet like he just KNEW this ish was fly.
Reality chicks Tameka Raymond (of the upcoming "Atlanta Exes"), Bambi, Erica Dixon and Karli Redd were all there soaking up the camera action:
And Mama Dee:
Looked like a hot vixen mess. Gotta love her though...
Looks like Trina Braxton is STILL with her husband Gabe. We're convinced those two are just toying with the idea of a divorce for a storyline on "Braxton Family Values".
KeKe Wyatt and her husband made an appearance. The blonde is growing on us.
Tiny spent the night with the girls, again.
Dice partied it up with Carmon (Kandi's bestie) and friends.
And Will Packer, director Tim Story, and ATL Mayor Kasim Reed posed it up with the cast. Fun times.
BONUS: La, Kev, Will & Terrence hit up CNN this AM to have some more fun:

What a difference a few months make. Now that he's disowned his oldest son, Marquis, 50 Cent has become a doting dad to two-year-old Sire Jackson. See the pic and video he shared inside...
Once upon a time, 50 Cent seemed to not want anyone to know that he had a baby with former vixen Daphne Joy...but things have drastically changed. Following that HUGE domestice violence dust-up a few month ago, where we first learned about the existence of young Sire Jackson, 50 Cent has done a 180 and is now openly claiming Sire as the heir to his thrown.
He shared a new photo of Sire (who's ADORABLE) with the caption, "He's gonna be a better version of me. Little BIG MAN #smsaudio #animalambition #power"
He's also introducing young Sire to the finer foods. He recently posted a video of the little munchkin, who he calls "Little 50" (the same name he used to call Marquise, running around a fancy steakhouse and pointing at expensive bottles of wine.
It's a cute video and we're happy to see 50 embracing fatherhood. At the same time, it's bittersweet because we watched him do his olest son Marquis so dirty RIGHT BEFORE OUR EYES. SMH......

Since their break-up, Robin was spotted breaking down during tour performances, dedicating his hit song “Lost Without You” to his wife. There have been recent reports that the two could possibly be working on their relationship so this new album could seal the deal. Dude is putting in that WORK. Not mad.
We shall see.
And in other music news...
Actor Terry Crews’ wife/former gospel singer Rebecca Crews is proving she’s more than just a “housewife." She's making her own lane in the music industry.
To kick-off the summer, “The Family Crews” reality star is releasing her debut single titled “Can I Stay” slated to be released on July 8th.
Falling into the smooth jazz genre, with a gospel/pop influence, the single will be a teaser for what fans can expect when her album drops this October.
