Trina Drops Track Dissing Khloe Kardashian

French and Khloe are supposedly on a break and for a minute and the world has probably been wondering how Miss Trina has been feeling about the whole thing.

Before hooking up with one of the Kardashians, French and Trina were living together in New Jersey, seems like his new relationship probably came as a surprise. The Diamond Princess has finally spoken and TMZ reports that she's holding nothing back.

"Rapper Trina is on the attack … BLASTING her ex French Montana and Khloe Kardashian for screwing behind her back — and TMZ obtained a snippet of her new anger filled track about the affair.

Trina never mentions either French or Khloe by name in the new song called "F*** Love" … but sources close to the rapper tell us their tryst last year was definitely the track's inspiration.

Trina doesn't pull punches … insinuating French tried to play her for a fool — and referring to Khloe with the line, "You can keep that bitch!"

As we previously reported … Trina and French were living together in New Jersey when Khloe came on the scene. Sources close to the couple said Trina was devastated by the break-up."

John Starks Hints Biggie’s “I Got A Story To Tell” Was True

The closing track on disc one of The Notorious B.I.G.'s Life After Death featured the Hip Hop legend telling the story of his sexual escapades with a woman and later robbing her New York

Knicks boyfriend.

It seemed Biggie's "I Got A Story To Tell" was just a normal exaggerated rap tale, but apparently the song was really based on a true story.

Former Knicks All-Star John Starks made an appearance on ESPN2's Highly Questionable, and the show's hosts asked him about the Biggie track. After pointing out he was not the NBA player referred to on "I Got A Story To Tell," he did hint that he knew who Big was talking about.

"That wasn't me. First and foremost, I'm not even 6'5". I'm 6'2" actually, so it couldn't have been about me," said Starks. "I know who it was about, but I'm not going to say. I can't tell you."

When asked if he knew if the story was true, Starks stated he "heard something about it."

Jay Z Facing Lawsuit For Using The Word “Oh” On “Run This Town”

Hip Hop superstar Jay Z, WB Music Corp, Warner-Tamerlane Publishing, Roc Nation, Atlantic and Roc-A-Fella

Records are facing a copyright lawsuit for sampling the word "oh" on Jay's hit record "Run This Town."

The TufAmerica record label claims Hov illegally took the single syllable word from the track "Hook & Sling – Part 1″ by Eddie Bo.


[ALSO READ: Jay Z & Beyonce Reportedly Working On A Joint Album]

Jay Z is fighting back though. According to, the Brooklyn emcee filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit earlier this month. Jay's court papers read in part:

Plaintiffs entire, misguided copyright infringement lawsuit is based on an alleged "sample" of the most fleeting one-syllable word – "oh" – in defendants' sound recording entitled, "Run This Town" performed by the artist Jay-Z. Plaintiff alleges that this single-word sample is derived from Plaintiffs musical composition entitled "Hook & Sling Part 1″ and the sound recording thereof.

Importantly, Plaintiff does not allege that any musical element of Plaintiffs Works was copied – only the spoken word "oh," which appears just once in the introduction to Plaintiff's Works at approximately the 3-second mark, lasts for a fraction of a second in Plaintiffs Recording and is not repeated.

Plaintiff apparently believes that it has a monopoly on the use of the word "oh" and that it can stop others from using this word in recorded form. Well-established copyright jurisprudence should allow this Court to disabuse Plaintiff of that notion. First, it is black letter law that words and short phrases are simply not protectable under the Copyright Act. Thus, Plaintiff cannot state a claim based on the alleged infringement of a generic lyric such as, "oh," or the sound recording thereof, and Plaintiffs claims should be dismissed as a matter of law.

TufAmerica's suit was filed in November of 2013. The company acquired the rights to "Hook & Sling" in 1996. "Run This Town" was released in 2009.

According to The Guardian, the label previously sued Kanye West over the same song. The track is apparently sampled on Ye's "Lost in the World" off My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.

Vikes again shelve Adrian Peterson

The Minnesota Vikings have reversed course on Adrian Peterson, putting him on the NFL's exempt/commissioner's permission list until his child-abuse case is resolved, which effectively bars him from all team activities, the team said in a news release early Wednesday morning.

"After giving the situation additional thought, we have decided this is the appropriate course of action for the organization and for Adrian," Vikings owners Zygi Wilf and Mark Wilf said in a team news release. "We are always focused on trying to make the right decision as an organization.

"We embrace our role -- and the responsibilities that go with it -- as a leader in the community, as a business partner and as an organization that can build bridges with our fans and positively impact this great region. We appreciate and value the input we have received from our fans, our partners and the community."

[+] EnlargeAdrian Peterson
Matthew Emmons/USA TODAY SportsThe Vikings placed Adrian Peterson on the NFL's exempt/commissioner's permission list until his child-abuse case is resolved, which effectively bars him from all team activities, the team said.

Peterson was indicted last week in Montgomery County, Texas, on a count of reckless or negligent injury to a child. The charges stem from a whipping incident that reportedly left bruises and wounds to much of his 4-year-old son.

Peterson was also accused in 2013 of injuring another of his 4-year-old sons through a different mother in Texas, though charges were never brought. Those allegations were reportedly filed to the state's Child Protective Services agency, according to Houston CBS affiliate KHOU.

The Vikings reinstated Peterson on Monday, citing concern for due process and the legal proceedings before further discussions on Monday and Tuesday with the league warranted Wednesday morning's reversal.

Peterson had been deactivated for the Vikings' Week 2 game against the New England Patriots after the indictment was made public.

"While we were trying to make a balanced decision yesterday, after further reflection we have concluded that this resolution is best for the Vikings and for Adrian," the Vikings' statement said. "We want to be clear: we have a strong stance regarding the protection and welfare of children, and we want to be sure we get this right. At the same time we want to express our support for Adrian and acknowledge his seven-plus years of outstanding commitment to this organization and this community.

"Adrian emphasized his desire to avoid further distraction to his teammates and coaches while focusing on his current situation; this resolution accomplishes these objectives as well. We will support Adrian during this legal and personal process, but we firmly believe and realize this is the right decision. We hope that all of our fans can respect the process that we have gone through to reach this final decision."

Iggy Azalea Ex-Boyfriend Will Release Sex Video

One more thing the world needs: another celebrity sextape.

Although Iggy Azalea seems to be trying to stop the tape from seeing the light of day, her ex-boyfriend is pretty smart and is finding ways around the system so the world can see those cakes.

TMZ is reporting that Iggy signed her rights away to him back in 2009-meaning he can legally release the video.

"Hefe Wine says Iggy signed a lengthy agreement with him in 2009 — obtained by TMZ — which gives him exclusive rights to "manufacture, sell, distribute and advertise 'any' recording embodying visual images."

Iggy signed the contract to cut records and music videos, but Wine believes all he has to do is put a music bed under the sex tape which he claims would then give him exclusive rights to sell it.

In other words, he believes Iggy has no legal ability to block a sex tape if he wants to sell it.

What's more … the contract provides that Wine has the legal right to create, host and maintain a website to market Iggy's works, so he believes he could create a website which would host the video," TMZ reports.

Poor Igg. I wonder when females will learn that you can't do the do and let em' catch ya on film, it'll come back to haunt you…

Grand Jury In Michael Brown Case Extended Until 2015


individuals seeking justice for Michael Brown may have to wait a little longer than expected. The grand jury reviewing whether to bring charges against police officer Darren Wilson for Brown's killing has been extended until January 7, 2015.

[ALSO READ: Two New Witnesses Confirm Michael Brown Was Shot With His Hands Up (VIDEO)]

According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the extension does not necessarily mean it will take the grand jury that long to decide on the case, but it is a possibility.

The outlet also reports the typical grand jury in St. Louis County convenes for four months. That time frame expired last week for the current jury which was assembled prior to the Brown shooting. Circuit Judge Carolyn Whittington added extra time for the panel to review the Brown case exclusively.

Wilson is able to testify if he wishes, but he is not required to take the stand in the preceding. If he does choose to testify, his lawyer cannot be in the room.

The current St. Louis County grand jury reviewing the Michael Brown case consists of nine white and three black jurors. The testimonies and evidence presented to a grand jury are kept secret.

Wale Says He & Meek Mill Are Now “All Good” After Public Feud

Wale called The Russ Parr Morning Show to discuss his upcoming

project The Album About Nothing. While speaking with the radio program's co-hosts, Wale was asked about Maybach Music Group boss Rick Ross' role in settling his recent social media spat with fellow MMG artist Meek Mill.

[ALSO READ: Wale Leaves Jay Z's Roc Nation For Team Behind LeBron James]

"[Ross] was high," said Wale. "He gonna come in that joint smelling like a tree trunk. But that's how he is though. He was just like, 'Man, what? We ain't talking bout this right now.'"

The DMV representative then expressed how it was unfortunate the two rappers got into that public argument two days before Meek went to jail. Wale says he has not had the chance to speak with Meek since he has been incarcerated, but they were able to connect through other people.

"I actually did a song with his cousin, his best friend," revealed Wale. "And I even poked fun at Meek and me arguing on the record. It's all good. I think he comes home in late September, so it's all good on all sides."

Rihanna Blasts CBS For Removing Her From "Thursday Night Football" Broadcast

The "Thursday Night Football" game featured the Baltimore Ravens against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Rihanna was upset about being removed from the broadcast.

CBS changed a portion of its programming package for today's Thursday Night Football broadcast (September 11) of the game between the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers in part because of the inclusion of Jay Z's "Run This Town," according to ABC News.

Rihanna, who along with Kanye West appeared on Jay Z's "Run This Town," was a victim of domestic abuse. The singer was assaulted in 2009 by then-boyfriend Chris Brown.

Video surfaced Monday (September 8) of then-Ravens running back Ray Rice striking and knocking unconscious his then-fiance. Rice, who was serving a two-game NFL suspension, was released by the Ravens and then banned indefinitely from the NFL Monday.

CBS had announced that "Run This Town" was to be included as part of the opening sequence for each of its 2014 NFL broadcasts of Thursday Night Football. The sequence also features narration from actor Don Cheadle.

CBS Sports Chairman Sean McManus said that Rihanna being a victim of domestic abuse was a reason the network removed the sequence, though it was "not the overriding one," according to the ABC story.

Jay Z & Beyonce Recording Joint Album,

The news comes just days after their final "On The Run" tour performance in Paris over the weekend.

Jay Z and Beyonce have begun recording a joint album according to DJ Skee.

Skee announced the news on his recently-launched Dash Radio and said he's confirmed the information with more than one source.

"The biggest couple in music, maybe entertainment, maybe the world, they're working on an album together," he said. "You know who I'm talking about, Jay Z and Beyonce. I have confirmed and talked with a couple sources. Now we all know what Jay Z did Samsung last year. We all know how Beyonce came out of nowhere. But this secret would top all of them, even that new U2 album."

The news comes on the heels of their final On The Run Tour show in Paris on Saturday (September 13). The North American leg of the tour alone grossed over $100 million according to Billboard. In August Billboard estimated that the couple's per show pay guarantee was as high as $4 million "from an average attendance of nearly 45,000 per show." The North American tour also boasted a collective attendance of 850,000 over 19 shows.

The tour's final two performances in Paris were filmed and will air as a part of an HBO concert special scheduled to premier this Saturday (September 20). Yesterday, Jay Z and Beyonce released the first of a three-part trailer for the special called "Bang Bang."

Gucci Mane Sentenced To 3 Additional Years In Prison

Gucci Mane was sentenced to three additional years of incarceration for hitting a man with a bottle.

Gucci Mane pleaded guilty to assault yesterday (September 15).

The rapper was sentenced to three years in prison for assaulting an Army staff sergeant with bottle in a nightclub on March 16, 2013. The sergeant reportedly walked up to Gucci Mane's VIP area and was looking to take a picture with the rapper before being hit with the bottle.

District Attorney Paul Howard spoke on the matter, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

"Rather than accommodating the admiring fan, Davis, for no explicable reason, instead, hit the victim over the head with a vodka bottle and then hurriedly left the club," District Attorney Howard said. "The victim sustained a deep laceration to his forehead which required 10 stitches."

The AJC report says it's unclear if Gucci will get credit for time served.

Mane was also convicted of battery in 2011 and assault in 2005, the AJC explains. In '05, Mane was also charged with murder following a shooting of a Macon rapper that allegedly attacked him, but the charges were dropped. In 2008, Gucci was charged with battery in Henry County, also. However, victims were unwilling to testify, according to the AJC.

This follows recent news that indicated Gucci would be released one year early for a different sentencing regarding weapons charges.

Iggy Azalea Threatens To Sue Vivid

From the sounds of things this alleged sex tape may be legit.

Iggy Azalea has now enlisted the help of her lawyers to put a stop to the release.

TMZ reports Iggy is doing everything she can to halt the proceedings and feels betrayed by her ex-boyfriend, Hefe Wine. If you're unfamiliar with the rapper, he hails from Houston and scored a hit a few years back with "Pop My Trunk." Peep the details below:

"Iggy Azalea's lawyers are throwing the kitchen sink at a major porn company … now claiming Vivid will get its dirty corporate ass sued if it dares to market her alleged sex tape … because the name "Iggy" can only be used by Iggy.

It seems a sex tape exists, even though her lawyers deny it. Initially they said it was a fabrication … then said if it does exist she may have been a minor. The "sex partner" — rapper Hefe Wine — told TMZ Live Friday there is indeed a tape and she knew about it and consented. And he says she was NOT a minor … he says he met her when she was 18.

Now Iggy's lawyers have fired off a letter to Vivid — obtained By TMZ — in which they say the name "Iggy" is gold … protected by U.S. Trademark.

So maybe Vivid could market the tape this way — STEAMY SEX TAPE, FEATURING SHMIGGY SHMEZELIA AND HEFE WINE!

Vivid is unimpressed, restating it's desire to market the tape.

BTW … sources close to Iggy say she feels betrayed by her ex-BF."

Ray Rice Is Appealing Indefinite Suspension From The NFL

Many sports insiders, fans, and women's groups felt the NFL's decision to indefinitely suspend Ray Rice for hitting his then fiancée Janay Palmer was too little, too late. But Rice is ready to argue the punishment was unfair according to a report by NBC Sports.

[ALSO READ: Floyd Mayweather Jr: The NFL Was Wrong For Indefinitely Suspending Ray Rice]

The former Baltimore Ravens star is appealing the league's ruling. He is claiming that he told NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell the truth about what happened the night he struck Palmer at an Atlantic City hotel. Other sources who were present during the meeting with Goodell have backed up that account as well.

At the moment, Goodell would actually have the final say on Rice's appeal, but the running back and the NFL Players Union is expected to ask for an outside officer to oversee the hearing. Rice has hired his own personal attorney to handle the appeal.

The NFL originally suspended Rice for only two games, but after elevator footage of the incident was released the suspension was extended to an indefinite amount of time. Rice is essentially claiming he is being punished twice by the league for the same offense.

Rice was released from the Ravens after the video became public as well.

Kanye West Questions Handicapped Fans At Australian Concert

"This is the longest I've had to wait to do a song," Kanye West said while waiting for two concertgoers to stand up. "It's unbelievable."

Kanye West stopped his concert at the Qantas Credit Union Arena in Sydney, Australia Friday (September 12) because he noticed people were not standing up.

"I decided I can't do this song," West said, interrupting his performance of "The Good Life." "I can't do the rest of this show until everybody stand up, unless you got a handicap pass and you get special parking and shit. And I'mma see you if you ain't standing up. Believe me. I'm very good at that."

West then noticed some fans who were not standing.

"Is he in a wheelchair?" West said, pointing out into the crowd.

After waiting for a moment, Kanye singled out a pair of fans.

"There's two people left that don't want to stand up," West said.

After waiting a few moments, West added: "This the longest I've had to wait to do a song. It's unbelievable. Now if he's in a wheelchair, then it's fine."

After West's bodyguard reportedly saw that the fan in question was indeed in a wheelchair, West opted to continue his performance.

Frank Ocean's Father Sues Russell Simmons For $142 Million

Frank Ocean's father is seeking damages from Russell Simmons because of statements that one of the businessman's websites made about him.

Frank Ocean's father is suing Russell Simmons for $142 million, according to TMZ.

Frank Ocean's father, Calvin Cooksey, is seeking money for loss of future income from Simmons because of comments one of the businessman's websites made.

The lawsuit alleges that Simmons' Global Grind site said that Cooksey, who describes himself as a singer, writer and inventor, was a horrible parent.

"He wasn't allowed to be a father to Frank because his 'Money Grubbing mother' moved, and hid the boy from him," Cooksey's lawsuit says, according to TMZ.

At press time, Simmons has yet to respond regarding the lawsuit.

Nicki Minaj Denied To Speak At Her High School

Nicki Minaj wanted to go back to her old stomping grounds, LaGuardia Arts High School and show the kiddos there some love, but was shut down by administration. Nicki took to Twitter to voice her frustration and received a few words of comfort from fans.

Screen Shot 2014-09-12 at 9.48.11 AM

LaGuardia's Parent Association says Minaj was denied the opportunity because she wanted cameras to capture the moment, according to MediaTakeout.

MediaTakeout also posted a letter from the Parent's Association:

"It has been brought to our attention that Nicki Minaj is attempting to generate publicity for herself by posting negative information about our principal, Dr. Lisa Mars, and LaGuardia Arts High School.

The fact is that Ms. Minaj was told by the NYC Department of Education (DOE) that she would not be allowed to enter the school with a television crew. The DOE has policies in place to protect the privacy and security of all its students. I'm sure we all appreciate the strict enforcement of these policies with regard to the safety of our children.

Yes, Nicki's offer wasn't entirely selfless. She was planning on filming the whole thing. I don't blame the school for saying no.

If it's a PR war Miss Nicki wants, she's going to lose. What if she had just played by the DOE's guidelines? That would have been too easy."

Is the Department of Education pouring salt on Nicki? Or do you think its really about the students?

Iggy Azalea Reps Say Alleged Sex Tape Could Be Hers

Breakout star Iggy Azalea could be joining Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian, and Mimi Faust on the list of released celebrity sex tapes if Vivid Entertainment gets their way. According to TMZ, the porn company was approached about possibly buying erotic footage of the "Fancy" rapper.

[ALSO CHECK OUT: J Lo Teases New Video for "Booty" Featuring Iggy Azalea]

After first denying that any sex tape with Iggy existed, her lawyers are now claiming if there is a tape it was most likely filmed when the Australian native was underage and without her consent. The attorneys also state the possible sex tape would have only been available to a "spurned business suitor" which TMZ is calling an ex-boyfriend.

Vivid apparently reached out to Iggy's team about releasing the tape. The company cannot legally produce the video without her approval.

Vivid founder Steven Hirsch suggests Iggy could make millions of dollars off the release of the sex tape. Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star Mimi stated recently that she will see revenue from her Vivid porn tape for the rest of her life. Ray J is reportedly still making thousands of dollars a month off his tape with Kim K.

Chris Brown Explains Why He Squashed Beef With Drake

The once long-standing feud between Chris Brown and Drake officially ended earlier this year as the two superstars

finally settled their differences. Part of the reconciliation took place at the ESPY Awards when Breezy appeared in a skit with Drizzy.

[ALSO READ: Drake Disses Macklemore, Does A Skit With Chris Brown & Gets Curved By Skylar Diggins At ESPYS]

Brown spoke with MTV's Sway about squashing his beef with Drake. The "Loyal" singer explained why it was time to move on from the drama.

"Especially after getting out of jail, going through whatever I was going through, I didn't have any animosity towards anybody," said Brown. "I'm just focused on me and what I was doing."

After several reported fights and the attack on then girlfriend Rihanna, Brown is looking to change his behavior and his image.

"I'm 25. I'm not getting no younger," he adds. "You can't walk around holding grudges, looking over your shoulder, and being negative all the time. I'm tired of being looked at as the aggressor. For me, I just wanted to show my maturity."

Chris Brown's X is scheduled for release September 16th.

George Zimmerman Threatens To Kill Man In Road Rage Incident, Reports Say

George Zimmerman may have found freedom despite slaying Trayvon Martin, but he's not helping the notion of innocence in a new case in Florida.
A recent report has stated that Zimmerman was involved in a road rage

incident where he hurled death threats at passengers in another car.
The 30-year-old Zimmerman was was acquitted of second-degree murder in the shooting death of Trayvon in 2013.

The recent incident happened on Tuesday when, police say, Zimmerman pulled his truck up next to him and yelled "Why are you pointing a finger at me?" Zimmerman then asked the other driver, "Do you know who I am?" and said he would kill him. The man then called 911.

The police just released the audio from the 911 calls today.

A local CBS affiliate in Miami chronicled the whole ordeal and posted the audio.

The man who identified himself as "Matt" said in the 911 call, "There was a passenger going, "Hey what's your problem? Why are you shaking your finger?" I said, "Excuse me?…I looked over and it's George Zimmerman who was the driver and they were threatening to kick my [expletive] and to shoot me! I said what are you going to do? Shoot me?"

The dispatcher then asks, "And you know this was George Zimmerman?" The man responds, "Oh, for a fact!"

"He then came up, in his ridgeline, this will be on camera, toward my car, almost hit my car, an aggressive move and said he was going to shoot me dead," said Matt over the phone with a dispatcher.

"Are they still there," asked the dispatcher. "They peeled off," said Matt.

In the call the dispatcher asks Matt, "Just confirming this was all verbal. You didn't see a gun or anything. This was just voiced to you?"The caller replied by saying, "That's all verbal. He did not flash a gun."

The man refused to press charged.

Zimmerman has had a number of run-ins with the law since being acquitted of murder.

Hmm, this definitely sounds like something thats already been done time and time again. Everyone remembers Paris Hilton's home movie, "One Night In Paris", as well as her infamous former BFF,

Kim Kardashian's little home movie which catapulted her straight to super stardom. Well the streets are talking, and according to reports buxom blonde import Iggy Azalea, may have already appeared in a little home movie of her own…. which in fact is already being shopped to Vivid Entertainment.

Damn, Iggy say it ain't so. I can't even front though, I'm sure I'll be scouring the web with the rest of the masses if and when it actually drops.

Tahiry Hospitalized After Brutal Fashion Week Fight

Reality star

Tahiry Jose was brutally beaten and subsequently hospitalized after a fight with a man during New York's fashion week.

Monday night, rumors began to circulate that the Love and Hip-Hop star had been involved in an altercation. However, by Wednesday there were confirmations.

A man named Carlos Gonzales stands accused of brutally beating Tahiry just before she was to walk the runway at the Toure Designs Fashion Show on Monday. Carlos allegedly accosted Tahiry verbally and then, when she warned him about disrespecting her, he attacked.

He repeatedly struck her several times and then drug her by her hair, according to, and that it took about 8 men to pull him off her the celebrity. Tahiry has been released from Lennox Hospital and is recovering at home. Other reports have suggested strongly that Tahiry verbally lashed out at the man and made fun of his sexual orientation and did not actually go to the hospital

Meanwhile, Toure of Toure Designs issued an exclusive statement denouncing the violence and offering some clarity about the overall situation.

"I would like to take the time to clear my company's name, as this was not a Toure Designs show. We were part of the Angola International Fashion Show event. The incident didn't take place backstage, it happened in front of the venue.

The Production Manager of the venue Carlos Gonzalez, seemed to already be against this event happening before the altercation took place. I would like to apologize to my fans and celebrity attendees that came to support me for this unfortunate incident. This was something that was totally not in my control. We at Toure Designs do not support or condone violence of any type let alone against women. We wish Tahiry a speedy recovery."

The show never happened and has been rescheduled.

Carlos Gonzalez has not been charged with a crime at press time.

Ray Rice Reportedly Says Alcohol Caused Elevator Assault

The video of then Baltimore Ravens player Ray Rice hitting his fiancée (now wife) Janay Palmer in a hotel elevator shocked most of the country, and many wondered why the NFL pro-bowler struck the woman so hard she was knocked unconscious.

Rice issued a statement that included him saying the couple are "in good spirits" and there are "a lot of people praying" for them. Rice and Palmer are said to be undergoing religious mentoring with other couples.

Khloe Needs A Break From French

If Khloe Kardashian knows whats good for her, she'll make this break permanent.

US Weekly is reporting the reality star needs some space from her boo French Montana.

"Eight months after she started dating French Montana, Khloe Kardashian has said au revoir to the "Cocaine Mafia" rapper, sources reveal exclusively in the new issue of Us Weekly.

"They are on a break," one source tells Us. "The relationship got too heavy and Khloe needed to take a step back."

Another insider says the Moroccan-born musician, 29, was too "needy" for the reality star, 30. "It grated on her that he became so dependent on her," the pal tells Us.

It didn't help, of course, that her family never really warmed to her beau.

Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner "did not approve and told Khloe all the time," the first insider says.

And she wasn't the only one with reservations; a friend previously told Us that sister Kim Kardashian-West and stepdad Bruce Jenner were "very skeptical" of the rapper and worried he was using her for fame.

Kardashian herself didn't seem too concerned about Montana's motives, though, even after he admitted he wanted to "capitalize" on the attention.

He later said his words had been taken out of context and gushed that he'd do anything for his lady love.

"She supports me with everything I do," Montana told Access Hollywood Live in August. "When it comes to her career, I don't think about it. If she needs me to do something, I do it."

For the moment, at least, it seems that what she needs is distance.

"She just wants time apart from him," the first source tells Us."

French has been quoted as basically saying he's in it for the ride and fame with Khloe, he later went back and said he was misquoted but to me the damage has been done….

Chris Rock’s Jay Z and Kanye West Co-Produced Film To Hit Theaters

Watch The Movie. Paramount Pictures has attained distribution rights for the Jay Z and Kanye West co-produced film Top Five which is directed, written and stars Chris Rock.

In Top Five, Chris Rock plays a comedian-turned-film star named Andre Allen whose encounter with a journalist played by Rosario Dawson forces him to recollect on his past life as a comedian. The film takes place in one 24 hour time frame, which Rock told Variety is similar to TV shows such Louis C.K.'s Louie and Larry David's Curb Your Enthusiasm:

Louis C.K. is one of my good friends. I watch his show. I watch 'Curb Your Enthusiasm.' No one has done a movie like this. Just a movie about a comedian, a day in the life.

The film features appearances from Tracy Morgan, Kevin Hart, J.B Smoove, Cedric the Entertainer and a bevvy of other famous comedians. Rock informed Vulture that spectators will be surprised at Jerry Seinfeld's performance in the movie:

I think people are going to be surprised with Jerry. I think that's going to be the big shock of the movie. I mean, it's Jerry Seinfeld in an R-rated movie, so it's kind of like a special effect in itself. He did a little bit of it on Louie this year, where you see mean Jerry, you see realistic Jerry, kind-of-dramatic Jerry. I think Jerry's going to surprise everybody. Everybody's really good, but I think Jerry's going to be like, "Wow! Never thought I'd see that."

Questlove has also been tapped to act as the music director of the film. Rock premiered Top Five for the first time last Saturday (September 6th) at the Toronto Film Festival.

There is no word yet on when Paramount plans to release the film domestically and abroad.

Tahiry In A Fashion Week Fight

I heard this one last night, but just got around to it tonight. I heard that my boo boo Tahiry got into some fight yesterday night during a fashion week event. I don't know exactly what sparked the fracas, but I heard she got it in. They word on the street is that Tahiry got into it with some gay man at a fashion show event in Harlem. People have said that the dude that fought her might actually have to go to jail. The whole incident played out backstage at a show. That's about the extent of my understanding of what happened.

No word on if she won the fight or not. I'm thinking she did.

Remember when Consequence slapped Joe Budden and Tahiry came to the rescue!? I do.

Ray Rice’s Wife Defends Her Husband, Says Media Is Wrong For Releasing Elevato

Ride or die is the foundation of love and delusion. Earlier today (September 9th), Ray Rice's wife, Janay Rice posted a message on her personal Instagram account defending her husband following the release of him assaulting her

in a hotel elevator.

The initial security footage of Janay's physical altercation with her husband surfaced in late February and only depicted her husband dragging her unconscious body out of the Atlantic City hotel Revel. Yesterday (September 8th), new footage emerged from inside the elevator which clearly showed Ray Rice striking his wife twice with closed fists, knocking her out. In her Instagram message, Janay accuses the media of releasing the new footage 7 months later in order to gain ratings:

To make us relive a moment in our lives that we regret everyday is a horrible thing. To take something away from the man I love that he has worked his a.. off for all his life just to gain ratings is horrific. THIS IS OUR LIFE!

Rice was released from the Baltimore Ravens hours and suspended from the NFL indefinitely yesterday after the footage was released. Janay reassures Ravens fans that the Rice family still has love for them:

Just know we will continue to grow & show the world what real love is! Ravensnation we love you.

The NFL responded to the footage claiming they were not privy to the assault video from inside the elevator since "security for Atlantic City casinos is handled by the New Jersey State Police" and the video was not made available. The New Jersey State Police claim they never had the video and the Atlantic City Police Department handled it.

French Montana, Kanye West, Rick Ross & Diddy Accused Of Stealing “Gucci Mane

The Kanye West-produced track "Gucci Mane" by

French Montana is not even out yet and someone is already claiming it is a rip-off of their own music. Atlanta rapper 9Gotti is accusing West, along with Montana's label heads Diddy and Rick Ross, of stealing his song.

[ALSO READ: Hip Hop Rumors: French Montana Paid How Much To Appear On Kardashians?]

According to TMZ, 9Gotti's label Chinga Chang Records contacted Kanye, Diddy, and Ross in attempt to prevent French's version from even being released.

The site reports:

The record label sent a cease and desist letter that's pretty comical … saying the ripoff may have been a "drunken oversight." It also takes a shot at Diddy — accusing him of being a music thief — and says Rick Ross should know better because he's an ex-correctional officer.

French revealed during an interview with Power 106 last month that he did have a song called "Gucci Mane" that features Ross and Lil Wayne. He also acknowledged the Mac & Cheese single was produced by Kanye along with The Mekanics.

Gucci Mane To Be Released From Jail One Year Early

A judge has granted Gucci Mane credit for 11 months of served time. The rapper is scheduled for release in December of 2016.

An Atlanta judge has granted Gucci Mane credit for nearly a year of time served in a gun possession charge stemming from a September arrest last year according to TMZ.

Gucci Mane was sentenced to serve 39 months at a hearing in August after reaching a plea deal on the weapons charges, avoiding a potential decade-long sentence in the process. Despite his being arrested in September 2013, Mane's sentence was scheduled to begin at the time of the sentencing hearing itself. As a result of the latest court ruling, the eleven months Gucci served between September and his sentencing hearing last month will now be subtracted from the 39 month punishment. TMZ reports that Gucci is now slated for release in December of 2016.

As a part of the plea deal executed in August, Gucci Mane's lawyer requested the rapper to be entered into a drug rehabilitation program and to be held on the West Coast, away from his hometown affiliates. "He understands he has some work ahead of him and his goal is to bring resolution to this case and get back to performing," Gucci Mane's lawyer, Drew Findling, said according to Rolling Stone. "He doesn't want anything to distract him. He wants to do anything to get back to the work place and the work place is the stage."

In September of last year, Gucci Mane was arrested after police found the 34-year old rapper with a 45-caliber pistol and eight bullets. At the time of his arrest, Mane was already serving probation for a previous felony charge.

Gucci Mane released his I Am Trap mixtape on August 31. HipHopDX gave the release three out of five stars, noting, "the best moments on I Am Trap would sound like welcome additions to his most critically acclaimed tapes, like Trap Back, Writing's On The Wall, or The Cold War mixtape trilogy. With a guest spot from Wale on one of the tape's standout tracks, 'Used To It,' Gucci states in the chorus 'Imma keep doin' what I've been doing.' Looks like Guwop will be releasing much more 'free Gucci' in the foreseeable future."

Hide Yo’ Husband! Antoine Dodson Is A Boxer

I got this off of KnockoutNation and, yeah…this is scary. Antoine Dodson, the internet sensation, is now a boxer.

Yes…this dude is boxer now.

(KnockoutNation Exclusive) At one point, Antoine Dodson told people to hide for safety but now he's changed his tune. He now wants people to come to him so they can get hurt – in the boxing ring.

The one-time social media superstar has joined forces with promoter Dan Feldman, known for putting together celebrity boxing matches. The pair hope to link Dodson with a fight in the near future.
Who that person is, is anybody's guess.

Dodson is best known for fighting off a man that attempted to rape his sister. In an interview with a local news station he said, ""Well, obviously we have a RAPIST in Lincoln Park. He's climbin' in your windows, he's snatchin' your people up, tryin' to rape 'em. So y'all need to hide your kids, hide your wife, and hide your husband cause they're rapin' everybody out here."

Now, I was able to obtain an exclusive image of Antoine "The Killer" Dodson as a boxer:

Migos Accused Of Taking Concert Promoter’s Money At Gunpoint

Atlanta-based rap group Migos was scheduled to perform a concert in Evansville, Indiana recently, but the trio never took the stage. According to reports, Migos still walked out of the venue with their payment despite the fact they did not perform.

[ALSO CHECK OUT: Migos Freestyle Live on BReal.TV's Heavyweights Radio]

Quavo, Takeoff, and Offset were apparently paid $11,000 upfront by the entertainment company 41 South. The remainder of their appearance fee, $10,000 in cash, was at the location. The organizers claim they attempted to stop Migos from exiting the Evansville Coliseum, but the group pointed two rifles at them and left with the $10,000.

This news comes after Migos was caught on camera as part of a brawl at Nashville, Tennessee's LimeLight nightclub this past weekend. That melee reportedly began after someone in the crowd attempted to steal one of the member's chain.

Chris Brown: “Maybe I Was Out Of Control”

Has Chris Brown finally come to the realization that some of his past actions were damaging to his well being and

music career? It seems so. In a new cover story for Billboard magazine, the R&B superstar shares his thoughts about his life, music, and relationships.

[ALSO READ: Chris Brown and Trey Songz Announce Joint Tour]

The headline for the article reads, "Maybe I Was Out Of Control." Inside the piece, Brown discusses his jail stint, on-again-off-again girlfriend Rihanna, and his upcoming X album.


The Virginia singer is quoted as saying:

I realize that what I do for a living opens my life to public scrutiny and that I have a responsibility to everyone because of that exposure… I can say that I am only human and I have made mistakes. I can say that I try to live my life in the most true, honest way that I can. I am not perfect, no one is. No one is harder on me than me. No one can please everyone. No one can live in the past and expect to grow. I have been moving forward and hope that I am not defined by just a few moments in my life but all of the moments that will make up my life.

CB recently pled guilty in the misdemeanor assault case in Washington, DC. He was sentenced to time served.

Brown's sixth studio album X is scheduled for release on September 16. The project features the singles "Loyal" and "New Flame."

Jeezy Discusses Reason For Settling Feud With Former Rival Rick Ross

Many Hip Hop followers were surprised when news broke earlier this year that Young Jeezy and Rick Ross had settled their differences and would actually appear together on a track.

The two Southern rap stars had been involved in a very public feud for years, so their collaborative work on Ross' Mastermind and Jeezy's Seen It All was viewed as a big moment of reconciliation for Hip Hop.

Not everyone was convinced the settling of the beef between the Snowman and the Bawse was genuine. Chicago rapper Lil Durk expressed his belief that the union was strictly for publicity.

[ALSO READ: Lil Durk Says Rick Ross And Jeezy Collaborated For "Publicity" (VIDEO)]

Jeezy was asked about why he let go of his issues with Ross, and the status of the Def Jam artists' current relationship during an interview with The Breakfast Club.

Jeezy said:

With the title "Seen It All," I gotta be honest. I had to come to terms with being an adult and being a leader. Ignorance is one thing and being about your business is another. When me and homie finally had a chance for us to talk and not nobody talk between us, we saw everything alike. We made great music before. Why wouldn't you make great music?

At the end of the day, that's what the world needs. More so than people just going back-and-forth. The way I looked at was like, people get hurt. I'd been in them situations before. It's never you. It's somebody around you. It wasn't worth that to either one of us. The music is more important…

When I say, "I seen it all," I really grew up. When I came in the game I was a different dude. Now I see the world different – opportunities and things you can get done, more so than just pulling yourself back.

Young Jeezy and Rick Ross worked together on the Mastermind track "War Ready" and the Seen It All: The Autobiography track "Beautiful" with Game. The latter album was released this week.

Suge Knight: Who Shot Me Isn't Important

"It's gonna be some times when you might get a few shots," Suge Knight says, "but if you're able to survive those shots, you're supposed to make yourself stronger."

Suge Knight says that he is not concerned with who shot him August 24 at 1-OAK, a West Hollywood, California nightclub.

"Even if I did, I don't think that's really important, who pulled the trigger and who I seen pulled the trigger," Knight says during an interview with TMZ. "I think that I'm doing extremely well. I'm happy to be doing well and whatever happens, happens."

As for the incidents that transpired at 1-OAK that resulted in his being shot, Knight says that he thought of something his father said to him.

"I was shot inside the club and one thing my father always told me, 'No matter what it is, you never give up,'" Knight says. "'You never quit if you start something, or you walk in a place somewhere, you walk in one way, no matter what goes on, you leave the same way as a man.' I was shot and I think it was important that I wanted to walk and make sure I get to the right place to patch some of these holes up."

Now that he is recovering from his six gunshot wounds, Knight says that confrontation is inevitable.

"It's gonna be some times when you might get in a few bar fights," he says. "It's gonna be some times when you might get a few shots, but if you're able to survive those shots, you're supposed to make yourself stronger and be more positive and more aggressive of the people you wanna deal with, and that's the page I'm really on."

Jeezy Says Firearm Arrest Was Unwarranted

Jeezy's Street Dreamz Foundation donates $1 million to the Jay Morrison Academy.

Atlanta rapper Jeezy spoke briefly on his recent arrest while appearing on Hot 107.9 to promote his newly-released album, Seen It All: The Autobiography.

In regards to being detained, Jeezy revealed that he and the members of his crew should not have been arrested in the first place. He also stated that he could have bailed out early on, but chose not to leave those he was detained with until they could all be bailed out.

"I don't really want to get into it cause they still investigating, but I will tell you this though," Jeezy said. "When the smoke clears and everything's said and done, man I can promise you and I can assure you that me and my whole crew we gon' be good. And we shouldn't have been detained in the first place…I'm a real one, man. It's like this, these folks work hard on this tour with me. You know what I'm saying? And every day they was going hard for me…I just couldn't see me getting out. Because I could have bailed out and left them in there like that. So, my whole state of mind was 'Look man.' I even told my bail bondsman 'Man, until everybody's able to get a bail then we gonna just sit here. And when I say 'we' I meant 'us.' I'm not going nowhere until we all can bail out.'"

During a recent interview with The Breakfast Club, Jeezy spoke in-depth about the arrest and the members of his crew who were also detained. Among those arrested were a cameraman and a 50-year-old, female bus driver.

"They detained my bus driver—two of my bus drivers, one was a 50-something-year old lady—my cameraman," he said during his interview with The Breakfast Club. "I'm just such a real person, I know we was there to the right. I just couldn't leave'em in there. When I stepped in the door I had bailsman right there to get me out.

Young Thug Calls Birdman "My Lover" In Instagram Post

"Me and my lover dripping!!!!" Young Thug writes in reference to Birdman.

Taking to Instagram yesterday (September 2) to post performance footage of himself on stage, Young Thug referred to Birdman as his lover in the caption of the video. The video and caption comes just days after the rapper posted an image of a since-deleted MediaTakeout story claiming Young Thug was "gay bashing" and had threatened to "shoot a popular Atlanta transgender."

The Birdman referencing caption was attached to a video showing Young Thug shaking hands with the Cash Money Records co-founder during a concert. "Me and my lover dripping!!!! Like always!!!" he wrote. "@birdman5star fuck with me fool…."

In May, Birdman spoke about his own hopes for Young Thug's career, predicting that the Atlanta rapper could become a "superstar."

"I think a lot of rappers—niggas now just rapping a lot," Birdman said. "And it don't take a lot of rap to make a hit record," Birdman said. "You know, you got the Wayne and the Drakes who really take songs and don't rap at all. Might sing on a song. Might do just a little rapping. That's what I see in him. He one of them that can do that. You know, Wayne developed into doing all these different things. And you got these young artists who really, Wayne is the mold for them. They watched Wayne. They studied Wayne. And he coming in the game like that. To me that put him on a higher level. Our plan as YMCMB and Rich Gang is to make him a superstar, a rock star."

In an interview released last week, T.I. spoke briefly on Young Thug's fashion sense and the strong response his wearing dresses and painted nails has incited.

"I think so, I think he's aware of it," T.I. said when asked about the rapper. "I think he's aware of it and I think he embraces it."

Chris Brown Pleads Guilty To Assault

Chris Brown says he's sorry to the court after pleading guilty to assault in Washington, D.C.

Chris Brown pleaded guilty today (September 2) to assaulting a man in Washington D.C. in October.

The incident took place while the singer was on probation in a felony assault case involving his attack on his on-again-off-again girlfriend Rihanna in 2009.

Brown served time in jail earlier this year because he was on probation when the D.C. incident happened. The singer was released in June.

Brown also took part in counseling and rehab this year, a point that was brought up by Danny Onorato, the singer's attorney.

"To say that he's been punished severely in this matter is an understatement," Onorato said, as reported by the Associated Press by way of ABC News.

Brown also spoke on the matter.

"I would like to say to the court that I'm sorry," the singer said in court.

Jermaine Dupri Says He Was Not Dropped As Mariah Carey's Manager

Jermaine Dupri calls himself "a psychiatrist of artists," says continuing as Mariah Carey's manager could have ruined their relationship.

So So Def Recordings CEO Jermaine Dupri clarified rumors that he was dropped as Mariah Carey's manager due to low album sales for Me. I Am Mariah... The Elusive Chanteuse, during a newly-released interview with Vlad TV.

According to JD, he chose to leave his position as manager for the singer because he felt that it would have eventually affected their friendship. He revealed that many chose to assume he was dropped by Mariah rather than consider the possibility that he left on his own terms.

The record producer also shared an ongoing joke that compared his relationship with Mariah to that of Mariah's relationship with her now estranged husband, Nick Cannon.

"That's the story that people make because that's what people—People think in their minds that that's exactly how it has to happen," Dupri said. "It can't be—It just can't possibly be that Jermaine woke up one morning and didn't want to do it no more. That just can't possibly happen, right? That just can't possibly be the thing. Like he had to get dropped because that's what happens in the world. Niggas get dropped. But nobody else has a mind to say 'You know what? I don't really wanna do this shit no more. I got other shit I want to do. But I'm not that smart, right? I couldn't do that. That's impossible.' That's what I'm saying. It's crazy that people just make these stories. I wasn't dropped. I chose that—I chose to do this because me and Mariah are friends, right? First and foremost. And we make hit records in the studio…This was the ongoing joke. I have a relationship with Mariah better than her and her husband. I've known her longer than her and her husband known each other…With that being said, you don't want to fuck that up. I saw a lot of things happening with inside of me being her manager that could have fucked that up."

Later in the interview, Dupri referred to himself as a "psychiatrist of artists" when describing the relationship he's had with the artists he's worked with throughout his career. He also revealed that the general public assumed he was dropped from Def Jam when he instead chose to leave the label because he was unable to do what he wanted.

"I'm like a psychiatrist of artists," he said. "If you wanna sit and talk to me and work out things that's going on in your life I'm that person that most of these artists talk to. So, with that being said, me and Mariah we good…That's the same story that came out when I left Def Jam. 'He got kicked out of Def Jam.' I chose to leave because if what I do is not being recepted then it's not no need for me to do it. And I'm easily the person that will get—If you start not allowing me to do what I do then I will easily start removing myself away from that picture. And I have done that so many times."

The release of Jermaine Dupri's interview with Vlad TV comes weeks after it was announced that Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon had filed for divorce.
