Evelyn Braxton spills the tea about Tamar and Vince’s marriage

Evelyn Braxton spills the tea about Tamar and Vince’s marriage.

She says their marriage was years of physical and emotional abuse.

Via theGrio:

“It was definitely a volatile relationship,” Ms. Braxton says during a phone conversation from Atlanta, Georgia. “This has been going on for years.” 

The matriarch of the Braxton family says Tamar’s estranged husband, Vincent Herbert, was both physically and emotionally abusive throughout the marriage, something that has long been kept secret—until now.

“Everybody saw Vince as a knight and shining armor, [but] behind closed doors that’s a horse of another color,” Evelyn Braxton says. “I’m tired of [Tamar] being abused and misused.”

UCLA Basketball players LiAngelo Ball, Jalen Hill and Riley may face serious jail time for shoplifting in China

UCLA Basketball players LiAngelo Ball, Jalen Hill and Riley may face serious jail time for shoplifting in China.

Via Love B Scott:

LiAngelo Ball, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley were spotted at the Pudong International Airport in Shanghai early Tuesday where they were making their way back home to the United States days after being detained.

The young athletes had been confined to their hotel after allegedly stealing sunglasses from a Louis Vuitton store during the team trip to China.

China doesn’t play, so it took some pretty powerful people — including Donald Trump — to get the boys home.

Surveillance footage reportedly showed them stealing from three stores, including Louis Vuitton, before their opening game.

CNN reports the players could face anywhere from three to 10 years in prison if convicted of grand larceny.

Tyrese’s ex-wife wants an mental eval done on him

Tyrese’s ex-wife wants an mental eval done on him, she asked the judge.

Via TMZ:

Attorney Aleen Khanjian was referring to the various videos Tyrese has posted, referencing Norma and Shayla.

Khanjian also mentioned in court a court-appointed evaluator has referred to Tyrese as having a “mental illness.”

Norma is going for a permanent restraining order against Tyrese and she argued Tuesday he’s violated the temporary order by posting videos talking about 10-year-old Shayla.

The judge did not order a mental evaluation … at least not yet.

Blac Chyna is dropping all of her lawsuits against the Kardashian sisters except Kim

Blac Chyna is dropping all of her lawsuits against the Kardashian sisters except Kim.

Via TMZ:

According to docs, obtained by TMZ, Chyna is filing to remove Khloe, Kourtney, Kendall and Kylie from the legal battle, where she’s accusing the fam of getting her show canceled. It’s full steam ahead as far as Kim, Kris and Rob Kardashian are concerned.

Before the sisters start celebrating … there’s some fine print. Chyna’s list “Does 1-100” as defendants — that’s legal speak for people you could later add to the lawsuit. It’s entirely possible she’ll refile against the sisters.

But for now, at least … they’re in the clear.

As we reported … Jelani was found guilty of predatory sexual assault against a child and endangering the welfare of a child. He’ll be sentenced next month, and is facing 25 years to life in prison.

Kevin Hart cuts radio interview as his wife Eniko goes into labor!

How exciting! Kevin and Eniko Hart are getting prepared to welcome their first child together into the world.

Kevin had a radio interview set up for this morning, but it was cut short when he learned that his wife had gone into labor.

Via TMZ:

Kevin Hart abruptly ended a radio interview Wednesday morning when he learned his wife’s water broke. Kevin was getting ready to do a phoner for Power 95.3 in Orlando when his manager came on the phone and told the producer  Eniko had gone into labor and they had to 86 the interview. We don’t know if Kevin was with Eniko at the time, but he had clearly just gotten the news before his manager pulled the plug. This will be Kevin and Eniko’s first child together. Congrats!  

Jordin Sparks is expecting her first child with her husband Dana Isaiah

Jordin Sparks is expecting her first child with her husband Dana Isaiah.

Via People:

“We’re both really excited,” says Sparks about finally opening up about their happy news. “He’s been like, ‘I want to shout it from the mountain tops!’ We’re really proud to be married to each other and to be celebrating this.”

Sparks had met her new husband’s family when she traveled to  Houston during Super Bowl weekend this past February with her charity campaign  I’m M.A.D., Are You?

When Isaiah — who is pursuing a modeling career — told his mom weeks later he was eyeing a move out West, Sparks’ mom and Isaiah’s mom put their children on a group text chat. “My mom was trying to get [Jordin] to talk me out of moving to L.A. because she’s experienced the industry out here,” he says. “It wasn’t like, ‘We want you guys to date.’”

But the pair bonded quickly over their tight-knit families and shared Christian faith. After talking nearly every day for a month, Isaiah flew out to Los Angeles for an agency meeting and met his future wife for the first time over Easter weekend.

“A couple days after we had actually met, I was like in my head ‘That’s going to be my husband! That’s my husband right there,’” says Sparks, who discussed early on with Isaiah about not moving in together until they were husband and wife. “When I’m with him, I feel comfort and safety and calm and peace, and those aren’t things that I normally felt. So it was a little wake-up call for me.”

On July 16, the couple eloped while on vacation in Hawaii with a small group of friends. “It just more solidifies the whole team sentiment of a relationship,” says Sparks. “You know you’re still individuals, but at the same time everything is about ‘we’ and ‘us’ as opposed to ‘you’ and ‘I.’”

After surprising their loved ones with their wedding news, the couple received the biggest shock of their lives when Sparks discovered she was pregnant in late August.

“It’s been really crazy because everything changes,” says Sparks. “Once we got over the initial shock of it, now again just like it is with the marriage, to be able to share that this amazing thing is happening, it’s such a great thing. We did this together!”

With Isaiah now settled in Los Angeles and their first child on the way, the singer — who swore off love last year after going through  high-profile breakups — is counting her blessings and embracing all the changes in her life.

“I’d gone through a crazy time last year, so I was just like ‘You know what? I’m good. I’m going to stay single. I’m just not going to look,’” says Sparks. “It’s amazing that that phrase “When you don’t look for it, that’s when it comes” … he just showed up at my door.”

Adds the singer: “I’m extremely grateful because life is nuts. This is the best part so far because I have [Dana] and I have this little one and I have a new family. I’m the most content I’ve ever been in my life.”

Meek Mill’s judge is reportedly being investigated by the FBI

Meek Mill’s judge is reportedly being investigated by the FBI.

Via TMZ:

Judge Genece Brinkley  is reportedly being investigated by the FBI for possible relationships she might have in Philly — including to a local music mogul she allegedly asked Meek to sign with — as well as a possible “extortionate demand” … according to the New York Post.

Per the report, undercover agents have been in the courtroom following Meek’s case since April 2016, and the Philly music mogul, Charlie Mack, allegedly once told Meek he knew the judge and could help him with his case. Mack denied that claim to the Post.

As we reported … Meek’s lawyer says Judge Brinkley also once asked Meek to do a remix to a Boyz II Men song and to give her a shout-out on it, and that her harsh sentence was a result of him shooting her down.

Rick Ross and Dr. J took to the streets Monday for a #FreeMeekMill rally that looks like it was picking up steam.

Colin Kaepernick says Meek Mill’s sentence was ‘radical injustice’

Colin Kaepernick says Meek Mill’s sentence was ‘radical injustice.’

Usher’s wife has a message for his herpes accusers

Usher’s wife has a message for his herpes accusers.

Via TMZ:

We got  Grace Raymond at LAX, where our photog asked if she had a message for everyone making allegations against her guy. As we’ve reported … there’s  quite a few  now.

She definitely had one thought to share, which was … not exactly what we were expecting. 

What’s interesting here … Grace appears to be on the phone with Usher himself. Unclear if he caught the question — but if he did … this couple sure gets on the same page quick.

Meek Mill’s attorney has filed a motion to remove the biased judge from his case alledgedly

Meek Mill’s attorney has filed a motion to remove the biased judge from his case alledgedly

Via TMZ:

Meek’s attorney, Joe Tacopina, tells us … he’s filing a motion for the judge to remove herself from his case, and will also be filing an official complaint with the judicial conduct board.  As we reported, the judge allegedly has it out for Meek because he wouldn’t do a Boyz II Men song with a shout out to her in the middle.

Tacopina feels the judge’s bad blood led to the stiff sentence of 2 to 4 years for violating probation.

Tacopina says Meek will also be applying to Pennsylvania’s Board of Pardons … but we’re told that’s more of a Hail Mary because it’s normally a 3-year process at least.

There’s a petition circulating, calling for the BOP and Governor Tom Wolf to have Meek’s “unjust prison sentence remedied” — which is now 300,000 strong — it probably won’t help much. A spokesperson for Wolf says his hands are tied by state law.

Way to go Colin!

He has been named GQ’s 2017 ‘Citizen Of The Year.’

Via Love B Scott:

Colin Kaepernick has been named GQ’s 2017 ‘Citizen of the Year’ for their annual Men of the Year issue.

Though Colin’s still holding fast to his silent protest, he did work on a project with GQ in order to “reclaim the narrative of his protest.”

He helped the mag assemble a ten-person team of his closest confidants—including rapper J.Cole, director Ava DuVernay, activist Harry Belafonte, and Women’s March co-organizer Linda Sarsour—to speak on the subjects of activism, protest, and equality, and to offer some rare insights into Colin himself.
