Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Pac Man Jones obviously doesn’t like to joke…especially when the joke is on him. Find out why he’s ready to lay the smackdown on Ludacris inside….
When it comes to Instagram memes, it’s all fun and games….until you’re the butt of the joke. Which would be the case for Cincinnati Bengals baller Adam “Pac Man” Jones.
He’s pissed. Why? Well…Ludacris posted the "Moral of the story is..." picture above with the caption, “#nowthatsludacris.” And it must have really gotten under Pac Man’s skin because he’s now spewing physical threats at Luda on social media over the post.
In the picture, Pac Man’s picture is used on the bottom right, poking fun at him saying ended up in a neck brace because he had a woman of a certain size on his shoulders during a pool party. Of course, that’s not Pac Man with the woman in the pool, but that IS a real picture of him in a neck brace. He actually suffered a serious season-ending neck injury in 2010 from football.
The actual picture is of him speaking with reporters after he was released from jail. He was arrested on misdemeanor charges of disorderly conduct while intoxicated and resisting arrest in 2011. Sighs...
Clearly offended by the post, Pac Man hopped in the "Party Girls" rapper's comments and threatened him saying:
Damn Pac Man it was just a joke! Take it easy...
Ludacris has yet to respond.

KeKe Palmer and Jhene Aiko both lent their great looks to a pair of photoshoots for BOMBSHELL and ELLE Magazine. More inside....
"Just KeKe" and actress KeKe Palmer looks amazing on the cover of BOMBSHELL (the female-centered BLEU Magazine insert). KeKe, who'll make history on September 9th as Broadway's first Black actress to star as Cinderella, opened up to the magazine about transitioning into more adult roles. Also, she talked about her involvement with social media and offers advice to fans about following their dreams. Highlights:
On transitioning from child star without any scandal: “I’ve always wanted to remain who I was, and show my growth in my roles. I’ve grown up in these roles, and people have finally been able to see the growth in me as an actress.”
On her success and what she puts out on social media: I’m here because I believed that I can be here, and if you believe you can be there doing whatever it is you want to do, then you can be there too, but you just have to believe.”
And her super hot pics below:
Hair, makeup, and style is on point for this shoot. Loves it!
Jhene Aiko, who'll released her Souled Out album on September 9th, posed for a fabulous black-and-white pictorial in Elle titled "STEPS OUTSIDE OF HER COMFORT ZONE."
In one of the chic photos, Jhene modeled a Juan Carlos Obando silk blouse,a white Prada dress shirt, and paired a black Carven dress with adidas Stan Smith sneakers. She talked to the mag about the particular look (which seems to be her signature) saying, “It was a little out of my comfort zone. I didn’t expect for it to look cool on me.”
Last week, Jhene performed in Chicago for Lollapalooza were she gave a crowd-approved performance of "The Worst" during a rainfall.

Lil Kim is on a roll, and she just dropped her third track in just as many days. Check out her newest remix inside, plus Tracee Ellis Ross flexing her rap skills....
Fresh off her "***Flawless" remix (to Beyonce & Nicki's remix) and her own diss track "Identity Theft", Lil Kim just dropped her "Hot Ni**a" freestyle for the masses.
Kimmy Blanco spit her bars over fellow Brooklyn rapper Bobby Shmurda’s single “Hot Ni**a.” And it seems she's on a mission to relevancy again. We love Kim and hope she sticks to focusing on something other than dissing Nicki.
Check it below:
You feelin' it?
Meanwhile, Tracee Ellis Ross is flexing her own rap skills....on her Instagram. She posted a video of herself reading lyrics to a song she likes--Mike WiLL Made It's artist Rae Sremmurd's "No Flex Zone". She said:
Peep T-Murda (we had to give her a rap name) above. Hilar.

Ne-Yo and his new girlfriend Crystal Renay were spotted boo'd up and holding hands during a day date in Hollywood. More inside....
Ne-Yo and his new lady Crystal Renay were seen holding hands while walking into a movie theater in Hollywood yesterday. His new girl, who describes herslf as "MODEL/ACTRESS Italian/black/spanish", seemed A-OK with the cameras follwing them.
The "new" couple began posting pics of one another of Instagram two months ago, and now it seems like they're ready to display their affections in public.
Hi ex-fiancee Monyetta Shaw is appearing on the new VH1 show "Atlanta Exes"...so we're sure we'll be hearing more about this.
On the music side, the "Money Can't Buy" singer is releasing his sixth studio album on November 11th and he recently filed an $8 million lawsuit against former friend and manager Kevin Foster for mishandling his finances and forging his name on loan documents! We guess money can't buy "trust."

The Nicole Murphy & Michael Strahan saga continues. A new report surfaced saying that Nicole lost her ish at Michael's supposed hotel room where she thought he had his "other woman" inside. Plus, Sara Stokes--formerly of Da Band--is back in jail and seems to be setting ish up for her own episode of "Snapped".
Back in January at the swanky Beverly Wilshire hotel, Nicole Murphy reportedly went batsh*t cray cay thanks to the belief her then-fiance was in a room there...with another woman. And it allegedly ended with security taking her away!
We've been mentioning the cheating allegations supposedly made by Nicole in the midst of her breakup with the "Live" co-host. And it seems ish got REALLY real several months ago.
According to TMZ:
Chile...Nicole is NOT here for the cheating.
For some reason, we believe every ounce of this story. These two have had a tumultuous relationship for years....and this seems to fit right on in to their drama.
And speaking of drama:
We're thoroughly convinced Sara Stokes (far left in above pic) is campaigning to have her story featured on "Snapped" on day very soon. Remember the singer from her "Making The Band" and Da Band days? The one whose manager-husband, Tony, always got the side eye for his seemingly controlling ways?
Well, she's back in jail for yet another domestic violence charge against said husband. And this time, the cops rolled up to her house and found her and her husband BRAWLING on the ground outside!
Reports from TMZ state:
That mugshot though...
After her husband bought her those new boobs years ago, it's been all downhill from there. She was also arrested back in '09 for stabbing her husband. And in 2011, Tony was accused of choking her out. The couple does have kids together...but all this violence has got to make them re-think why they are still together.

Beyonce is confirmed to perform at the 2014 MTV VMAS and she'll receive the 2014 Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. More inside....
Good news from the Beyhive, Queen Bey will be the "Queen" of the night when this year's MTV Video Music Awards air on Sunday, Aug. 24. We already told you that the "***Flawless" singer leads the pack with 8 nominations, and now MTV has confirmed that she'll perform at the show AND will receive the 2014 Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.
MTV released the news on their website reading,
In other Bey news, she and Jay Z just wrapped the U.S. leg of their joint On the Run tour (which has ALREADY made $100 Million). That means that between "On The Run" and "The Mrs. Carter Show" Bey has hit the $100M twice in a year!
And despite rumors of marital discord and supposedly staying in separate hotel rooms, the couple was spotted having a family lunch with Blue Ivy in San Francisco at Boulevard on Wednesday afternoon. On Wednesday evening, the couple joined Will.I.Am for dinner at Tosca before returning to their $30,000/night Presidential Suite at the St. Regis TOGETHER (see pics here). Hmm....if that is what marital strife looks like...sign us up.
