Long story short, word on the curb is…
Music Mogul Jay Z responded to the backlash he and his wife, Beyonce, received after being captured at the Super Bowl sitting during the national anthem performances. Now the controversy is this: Colin Kaepernick started a protest by kneeling on the sidelines during the National Anthem which later caused him to lose his job as a talented quarterback in the NFL. This happened about 3 years ago. Fast forward to now, in 2019, Jay Z signed on to work alongside the NFL to add more diversity and focus on righting some wrongs with the entertainment and things of that matter. Some people thought this was a slap in Cap’s face but Jay says it wasn’t. At a press conference, he said that we’re past the kneeling process and we’re moving on.
On Tuesday, Hov explained himself in front of a crowded auditorium at Columbia University.
He said he and his wife arrived during gospel artist Yolanda Adams’ performance and both became artists, admiring her and complimenting both Adams and Demi Lovato’s extraordinary voices.
““Then right after that, Demi [Lovato] comes out and we’re talking about how beautiful she looked and how she sounds and what she’s gone through in her life, for her to get on the stage, we were so proud of her. Then it finished, and my phone rang. And it was like ‘You know didn’t just…’ And I’m like ‘What?’ We didn’t stage that.” (The Jasmine Brand)
Do you believe him now?
The “Petty Prince” is back (kinda)! Rapper and mogul, 50 Cent was awarded $40,000 from a judge who dismissed claims made against him by reality star Teairra Marie. Marie filed a lawsuit against “Fif” for defamation after he reposted explicit videos and photos on social media. His argument was that he wasn’t the original poster so he’s not at fault. The judge agreed and although Marie hasn’t coughed a single dime since day one, he slapped on another $5,295.50. Now she’s responsible for paying him $40,000.
After the tragic helicopter accident that took the life of Kobe Bryant and 8 others late January, the rapper declared a change of heart. He vowed to abstain from petty arguments. So when he took to social media, leaving a capture to a post about his recent winnings, he simply said: “I’m not arguing anymore, so do you think you could have my money by Monday?” Where’s the lie? Here’s the full story.
Finally, there will be no long court battles or even any lawsuits filed in the near-fatal car crash that left comedian/actor, Kevin Hart and his two close friends badly injured in September.
Hart and his two friends went out to ride in Hart’s 1970 Plymouth Barracuda when the driver (not Kevin) lost control of the car and it went over an embankment in Malibu. All were severely injured; Kevin needing spinal surgery, following extensive physical therapy.
All parties are on the mend and have decided not to file any lawsuits against one another or against the car’s manufacturer. According to TMZ, they have 3 years to change their minds. We’ll wait.
