Incredibly, however, this is NOT the craziest Kardashian-related tabloid story of the day!
The National Enquirer screams on its latest cover that Kim Kardashian is faking her pregnancy because her “baby bump seems to change size and position… as she travels around the country.”
Why would Kim possibly conduct such a hoax? Straight cash, of course.
Alleges the newspaper:
“A source close to Kim believes the star might have hatched a sensational scheme with her money-hungry momager Kris Jenner to fake her pregnancy while secretly having a surrogate mom carry a baby for her and her lover Kanye West.”
Asks the newspaper:
“How convenient is it that Kim got pregnant just as she was making a mad push to wrap up her ongoing divorce from Kris Humhpries?”
“It also would be an insane coincidence that Kim just so happened to get pregnant soon after she learned the girlfriend of her ex-boyfriend Reggie Bush - Lilit Avagyan - is pregnant.”
Yes, folks, an INSANE COINCIDENCE, we totally agree! Don’t you?

A woman who claims Michael Jordan is the father of her son is suing the star for child support, it has been claimed.
Pamela Smith has apparently filed legal documents demanding that the legendary basketball player submit to a paternity test to prove 16-year-old Taj is his son.
The teenager, who uses the surname Jordan, has in the past taken to the internet to insist that the former Chicago Bulls star is his father.
Ms Smith filed a paternity suit in a court in Fulton County, Georgia three weeks ago, according to TMZ.
In it, she claims that she and Mr Jordan had sex in 1995, when he was married to Juanita Vanoy, with whom he has three children.
She says her son Grant Pierce Jay Jordan Reynolds, known as Taj, was born in June 1996.
Ms Smith insists that Mr Jordan is the boy’s father, and argues in the court documents that he should be forced to undergo a paternity test.
The claimant is seeking child support payments and money for Taj’s medical expenses.
She has also asked the judge handling the case to change her son’s last name to Jordan officially.
In a video posted on YouTube last month, Taj said he was Mr Jordan’s son and claimed he was in touch with the star.
Mr Jordan’s representatives declined to comment on Ms Smith’s claims.
This is not the first time he has been the subject of a paternity suit – in 1991, his former lover Karla Knafel claimed the star was the father of her child, but a DNA test proved that this was not the case.
Mr Jordan is considered by many to be the greatest basketball player of all time.
He is now the owner and chairman of the Charlotte Bobcats, and is engaged to marry Yvette Prieto next month.

Mr. 305 released his remix to “Harlem Shake,” entitled “Welcome to Dade County,” on which he defends his hometown and rips Weezy for his disrespectful comments about the Miami Heat.
“Don’t shit where you eat,” Pitbull barks at the New Orleans native. “When we show love to those that get their city destroyed by a hurricane and then they come down here…”
Weezy heard Pit’s charged words and responded in a tweet. “Dam pit bull bro I thought u was kool,” he wrote.
Pitbull explained to him why he was upset. “@LilTunechi I am cool papo but imagine me shitting on anything new orleans which I was just there for super bowl the big easy I loved it,” he tweeted. “@LilTunechi the world shows me love and vice versa but miami is all I got no disrespect just the truth.”
The two previously collaborated on the remix to Pitbull’s “Dammit Man” off his 2005 album Money Is Still a Major Issue.
American rapper Azealia Banks has become embroiled in a bitter Twitter row with Perez Hilton after slapping her own verses over the top of DJ Baauers’ Harlem Shake.
The 21-year-old let rip in a bizarre foul-mouthed rant on the social networking site after her version of the hit track was removed from Soundcloud – branding the New York producer a ‘f****t’ and accusing him of ‘c**kblocking’.
Her fiery comments have divided fans, with US blogger Perez taking offence, telling the rapper she is becoming known for her vitriolic rants rather than her music.
Perez wrote: ‘Classy as always! How does it feel to be better known for all your trash-talking than your music, Azealia?’
Electro hit Harlem Shake has inspired countless videos where one masked person dances alone ignored by those around them.
After her video was deleted the rapper decided to post her version of on Twitter.
Since the feud started Azealia, who is openly bisexual, has been accused of being homophobic – something the 212 strenuously denies.
Taking to Twitter she wrote: ‘Men in hip-hop beef and say f****t and all kinds of other craziness but I get shunned for doing it.’
She added: ‘Here we go again. Everyone pretending to be so shocked and moved by the word faggot. It’s like society is so bored with itself it needs to hold on to these outdated rules of what you can say and cannot say.’
This situation is a perfect example of how difficult it is to be a female who raps.
‘Art is supposed to be inspiring. If you’re mad at someone for being excited and inspired by your art then you’re doing it wrong.’
One fan added: ‘The fact that people sweat @AZEALIABANKS about rapping over a beat shows how intimidated they are by her talent and skill.’
The Harlem Shake began as a dance in the 1980s but the latest version featured on a flood of online videos is an electronic dance track by 23-year-old Brooklyn DJ Baauer who released the single last year with the record label Mad Decent.
The video starts with one person, often masked, dancing while everyone else in the room pays no attention but when the chorus kicks in they all join in, usually wearing crazy costumes or with props like blow-up giraffes or bicycles.
YouTube said the craze appeared to have started with a posting by a vlogger and spread quickly, with more than 12,000 Harlem Shake videos posted from the start of the month to mid-week watched up to 44 million times.
Harlem Shake has a way to go to top Gangnam Style which made history last December when it became the first ever video on YouTube to reach 1 billion views.
Media mogul Donald Trump slammed Beyonce’s Super Bowl performance as ‘ridiculous’ and inappropriate.
Appearing on the ‘Howard Stern Show,’ Trump said the singer was too ‘suggestive’ for a national audience.
‘When Beyonce was thrusting her hips forward in a very suggestive manner, if someone else would have done that it would have been a national scandal,’ Trump, 66, said. ‘I thought it was ridiculous … I thought it was not appropriate.’
Approval: Beyonce’s performance was heavily praised by music critics
Beyonce’s performance was heavily praised by music critics, despite the unflattering photographs that emerged afterwards of her making particularly aggressive faces while she danced.
Trump said he thought it was strange that no one else has criticized her for her scandalous dance moves.
‘There’s been no mention of it,’ he said. ‘So obviously, it must not have been so bad. She gets a pass.’
Trump isn’t shy about making his opinions known on other celebrities and well-known personalities.
His targets in the past have included actress Kristen Stewart and Huffington Post President Arianna Huffington.

‘Robert Pattinson should not take back Kristen Stewart,’ Trump wrote on Twitter in October. ‘She cheated on him like a dog & will do it again — just watch. He can do much better!’
Trump called Huffington ‘unattractive inside and out.’
‘I fully understand why her former husband left her for a man — he made a good decision,’ he wrote on Twitter in August.
She was celebrating her birthday with best friend and superstar Beyonce but soon after Kelly Rowland’s joy turned to pain.
The singer was seen in floods of tears outside Gjelina Restaurant on trendy Abbott Kinney Boulevard in the Venice area after her birthday lunch.
It’s unclear what caused the upset, but Kelly suddenly appeared overwhelmed by her emotions as sobbed away in the street in LA.
Sobbing away: Kelly cried as she stood outside Gjelina Restaurant following a meal with Beyonce and Solange Knowles plus Jay-Z
The star wiped away her tears after dining with former Destiny’s Child band mate Beyonce Knowles, her rapper husband Jay-Z and sister Solange Knowles.
As she stood on the side of the road with a friend keeping a watchful eye over her, it was difficult not to notice the vocalist, who donned a bright red top with three-quarter length black and white trousers.
She teamed it with a black cardigan and gold drop earrings as well as a chunky bangle and clutch bag.
Casual clothing: She teamed her top with black and white three-quarter length trousers
Like sisters: Beyonce posted online wishing Kelly Rowland a happy birthday
But her prim and proper look was compromised as she had to keep removing her large circle sunglasses to wipe her wet cheeks.
It seems it was a very emotional lunch for Kelly and her cousin Beyonce – who refer to each other as ‘sisters’.
On the same day Beyonce had posted an old black and white snap of the pair fooling around as a bunny ear-wearing Bey stuck up two fingers behind Kelly’s head.
She wrote alongside the cute photo: ‘Happy Birthday to my sis Kelly! ♥’
When Kelly was seven, her mother took her and left her father, who was an abusive alcoholic. At the age of eight, she relocated to Houston and was placed into a group with Beyonce originally named Girl’s Tyme.
To manage the group, Mathew Knowles, Beyoncé’s father, resigned in 1995 from his job as a medical-equipment salesman and dedicated his time to establish a ‘boot camp’ for their training. At this time Rowland moved in with the Knowles family.
Kelly recently gushed about getting to perform with the woman she sees as her sibling, after so long working apart.
She told E! News: ‘When I looked on the other side of the stage at the Super Bowl and I saw Beyoncé and Michelle [Williams], my heart just went into my throat. I was so happy. It was just such a beautiful moment.
‘Now everybody’s asking about other things, if we’re gonna do other things.
‘We’re like “No, we’re still doing our solo things,” Michelle’s doing Fela! B’s about to start the Mrs. Carter Tour. We’re just supporting each other. We had a moment for the Super Bowl.
Lil Wayne has a song called Troublemaker. Surprisingly, it’s not about his attendance at NBA games.
The rapper left the Miami Heat-Los Angeles Lakers game Sunday afternoon and tweeted he was forced to leave because he was rooting for the Lakers. But Heat spokeswoman Lorrie-Ann Diaz told USA TODAY Sports in an e-mail that Lil Wayne was not kicked out but instead chose to leave.
“So I’m @ da Heat game right, rootin 4 da Lakers kuz dats my team & would u believe they got police 2 make me leave?! Wow!” Lil Wayne tweeted at 5:01 p.m. ET.
GAME: LeBron drops 30 again as Heat top Lakers
One fan who was at the game said security approached Lil Wayne after he made a gesture.
“Random guy yelled at Lil Wayne at #MiamiHEAT game. Weezy looked back, gave him a mean stare & gestured he had a gun,” tweeted Danny Vega, who said he was at the game and sitting near Lil Wayne. “Weezy just got into argument with security at the #MiamiHEAT game. He got kicked out for gun gesture.”
Diaz, the Heat spokeswoman, did not respond to a question about whether security approached Lil Wayne before he left.
Lil Wayne cited racism when he was not allowed into a Western Conference finals game last year, but Oklahoma City Thunder spokesman Dan Mahoney said the issue was the rapper didn’t have a ticket to the sold-out game. He then attended an NBA Finals game in Oklahoma City, apparently smoothing over any issues with Thunder staff.
Lil Wayne offended quite a few people last summer when he declared that he flat out “don’t like New York,” but like a true New Yorker, Fabolous found inspiration in the uproar, turning Weezy’s oops into a clever catchphrase for his Big Apple anthem “So NY.” The Brooklyn rapper tells MTV News that Weezy’s statement simply motivated him to show off more pride in his city, and they’ve since had a conversation about it — at Miami’s Club LIV, obviously — and moved on
“I felt [Wayne] spoke his opinion so if he doesn’t like New York — it’s not a bad thing,” Fab said. “I do feel he spoke it because it was how he felt, and New York isn’t at its strongest point musically or [anything]. [But] it’s also hard to say that about any place. You can do an interview and say, ‘I don’t like Kentucky’ and the people of Kentucky are gonna have little gripe about that. Of course, Kentucky is not New York City, but the people there are prideful of their state.
“I just think he did it and I didn’t take it personally like it was directed at me,” he continued, explaining his immediate reaction to Weezy’s comment. “I took what he was saying and tried to empower some pride back into New York, like ‘I’m “So NY” Weezy probably don’t like me. And that’s what it was about, just making a statement, taking what he said and motivating people with it.”
At this point, Lil Wayne is generally known to be wholly consumed in his own world of skateboarding and ESPN, so when the two rappers ran into each other at Club LIV in Miami, they addressed the track briefly, and didn’t let any hard feelings linger.
“I saw him at Club LIV, and was like I’ma go over there and holla at Wayne, just to check the temperature and make sure everything is okay,” Fab explained. “Because you know people hear things and I don’t know which way they took it, but he actually came over to me, and said ‘what’s up.’
“And he was like ‘man, I wasn’t tripping off of that, I didn’t even take it in any kind of way when I heard it… I didn’t even know about it.’ I was like oh alright, that’s cool. So that was the end of it there. There was no reason to dwell on it, and I even took a picture for my Instagram just to show the people that it was no big deal.”
“What does Lil Wayne care about?” he added, laughing. “He doesn’t care about sh–.”
Fab dropped the visuals for “So NY,” last week, which he says highlights the grittier, everyday reality of New York, versus the shiny tourist attractions.
Fabolous’ sixth studio album Loso’s Way 2 is due this spring.
Negotiations for fights that will likely define the first half of 2013 are accelerating this week, beginning with the May 4 card expected to feature Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Saul “Canelo” Alvarez in separate bouts.
Golden Boy Promotions Chief Executive Richard Schaefer told The Times on Tuesday that attorneys could finalize details this week for Mayweather Jr.’s likely bout against Robert Guerrero.
Schaefer added Alvarez “will be fighting May 4, and so will Mayweather, but I’m not saying they’re fighting each other and I’m not saying anything more until we’ve finalized the agreements.”
Alvarez, the super-welterweight world champion, could fight Alfredo Angulo, James Kirkland or Austin Trout.
The location is expected to be MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Meanwhile, Schaefer and his rival promoter Bob Arum have struck at least a minor agreement, allowing Abner Mares’ manager Frank Espinoza to serve as an intermediary to negotiate a possible April 13 super-bantamweight title unification bout between Golden Boy’s Mares and Arum’s Nonito Donaire.
Espinoza said he is “encouraged” by the momentum of the talks and contends “this is a very marketable fight between a great fighter from Mexico and a great fighter from the Philippines.”
Espinoza said he would expect to know if the fight can happen within two weeks, after Arum returns from a trip.
Though Mares (25-0-1, 13 knockouts) will likely accept a smaller purse than Donaire in the bout, Schaefer and Espinoza said they’ve proposed that should Mares win, the purses would be flip-flopped for the rematch.
Schaefer said he doubts Arum will agree because “he knows Donaire will lose.”
Yet, Donaire (31-1, 20 KOs), likely to be named the fighter of the year for 2012, would be the expected betting favorite in the bout.
Painting a grim outcome of the talks is Donaire manager Cameron Dunkin, who told The Times, “That fight’s not happening. Get over it, and let’s move in to something else.”
Dunkin said Mares is asking for too much money – cash that will not be near what HBO or Showtime would pay for the fight.
Yet, Dunkin is optimistic that a rematch between his fighter, Oxnard’s Brandon Rios, and Mike Alvarado – a possible 2012 fight of the year – will be made for March 30 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.
“We’re closer, not quite there, but on the downhill slope,” Dunkin said.
Bradley (29-0, 12 KOs) would defend the World Boxing Organization belt he won from Manny Pacquiao in June, but the fighters at this point are trying to haggle through talks for a catch-weight limit.
Bradley has moved to 145 pounds, according to a source familiar with negotiations but unauthorized to discuss them, after 130-pound fighter Gamboa (22-0, 16 KOs) requested the bout be at 143 pounds.
The previous edition of Elle Australia closed a decade ago.
The editor will be named shortly, Bauer said in a statement this morning.
Paris-based international editorial director of Elle Valeria Llopiz told The Australian she would interview prospective editors in conjunction with Bauer this week.
“We’re looking for someone well experienced at the high end of the market, but with an understanding of fashion,” Llopiz said. “They will need a 360-degree strategy approach that takes in digital. She or he – we have a male editor in China – will understand our values and tone.”
“We are particularly excited to be launching ELLE, which offers readers and marketers all the benefits of a well-respected and successful global brand, as well the opportunity to participate in a multiplatform magazine from the start,” he said.
Hearst-Bauer Media joint venture publisher Peter Holder said the magazine, which will have a heavy multi-platform focus, would “will lift the bar and set new standards – challenging every notion of what a magazine can do and be”
Hearst also publishes Harper’s Bazaar, Cosmopolitan and Madison in conjunction with Bauer Media Australia.
Elle Australia will be the 44th edition of the magazine worldwide. According to Llopiz, the title attracts 29 per cent of advertising worldwide in its target market.
Globally the masthead offers “34 local websites, 28 million unique web visitors, eight mobile apps and18 thematic mobile apps, 10 iPad apps and seven thematic iPad apps, more than 2.5 million Facebook likes and 3.5 million Twitter followers”, the statement said.
Elle Australia has been an on-again, off-again proposition after launch plans were canned last March only to be revived by the middle of last year.

Rick Ross gets behind the camera and directs his new video for “Pirates” off 2012′s God Forgives, I Don’t album.
This clip took longer than usual for a Rozay visual to make it onto the air, and the Internets. We say behind the scenes photos from the “set” way back in early November 2012. The Maybach Music Group rapper is seen off the coast of Miami in a cigarette boat with a bikini clad vixen. She also puts in work, unloading the boats illicit cargo.
Also, the Bawse is seen rapping while seated on what looks like a thrown made out of coral. Ruh.
The song itself is produced by Keno and Got Koke and is the opening song (although technically track number two) off Rozay’s aforementioned, fifth studio album. Ross recently revealed the title of his next album, which will be called Mastermind, and also dropped a video for his and Stalley’s version of Chief Keef’s “Love Sosa.”
Watch the video for “Pirates” below.
The feud is over. Well, maybe.
Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj made an awkward peace on Tuesday during the 2013 Winter TCA tour in Pasadena, California, where reporters once again asked them to revisit their now-infamous “American Idol” feud.
“Time heals all wounds,” Carey said when asked about how the two divas quashed their beef. Minaj, who reportedly had a blank look on her face for much of the event, jokingly added, “And we watched my [sex] tape,” alluding to the reported bedroom video that has been whispered about for several years. “We’re professionals. Have you ever had an argument with someone you work with?”
Carey called the reports of the dispute “convoluted,” and said it was a distraction from the show and the contestants. “It is what it is,” she said, calling the panel, which also includes country star Keith Urban and sole original judge Randy Jackson, a “passionate” group. “['Idol' is] bigger than all that … bigger than some stupid, trumped-up thing.”
She also noted that the pair collaborated on the “ironically” titled song “Up Out My Face,” which appeared on her 2009 album Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel. “It was one of my favorite songs,” she said. “And I did feel like she was going to go very far and still have that feeling.”
The make-nice look was in contrast to an interview with Barbara Walters that aired on Monday night, during which Carey said she hired extra security after the spat because she felt “Idol” had become an “unsafe” work environment.
Asked if the battle was cooked up to goose interest in the show, Fox president of alternative programming Mike Darnell said, “It’s authentic … they disagree about a lot of the talent. It’s not just the girls, it’s everybody.”
Minaj tried to snuff the flames at times as well, noting that she says nice things about Carey all the time. “She’s one of my favorite artists of all times,” she said. “She’s really shaped a generation of singers. To be on a panel with her, it’s kind of crazy … All the singers come in aspiring to be Mariah, in terms of talent and in terms of career length.”
The two women, who sat one seat away from each other with Urban in between, weren’t all unicorns and rainbows, though. When Mariah referred to the fight as “one-sided,” Minaj quickly hit back, saying, “No, it wasn’t.”
Season 12 of “American Idol” premieres on January 16.
After retaliating with the dis track “Repo” on Wednesday night, Meek Mill is stepping back from his feud with Cassidy. The MMG rapper announced on Twitter that he doesn’t plan to release any more records directed at the Philly rapper.
“No more attention on broke n—- sh–….. I’m done…. Time 2 get this money! Nothing else #mmg #dcr,” he wrote on Twitter, then retweeting a fan who seemed to have just caught his track. “U missed the service it was nice! lol RT @JHarden13: WOW @MeekMill.”
As far as the public could tell, the contention between the two rappers begin in July when Cassidy began to retweet fans who wondered why he and Meek had not recorded since his career began to skyrocket with MMG. Meek, immediately offended by the implication, tossed some words at Cassidy. “U on some clown sh– right now,” he wrote. “Just say it 2 my face… I’m always home… Y’all b getting beside y’all self with this send button don’t confuse this twitter wit real life… #hating.”
24 year old recording artist, Rihanna, reportedly spent $12 million on a brand new 11,000 square-foot mansion in the Pacific Palisades of Los Angeles, California.

A father has been sentenced to life without parole after shooting dead his daughter’s lesbian lover and the her mother.
Jose Aviles, from Southeast Austin, Texas, yesterday pleaded guilty to shooting Norma Hurtado, 24, and Maria Hurtado, 57, on the doorstep of their home in April 2011.
Travis County court heard how Aviles had been drinking on the day of the shooting and was upset about the same-sex relationship his daughter, Lydia, 17, was involved in with Norma.
He drove to the Hurtado’s property with another man who has never been found, and opened fire at the mother and daughter, before fleeing.
His own daughter, who was staying with the Hurtados, was in a back room of the house when the shooting happened and called the police.
The desperate 911 call was played to the jury who heard Lydia Aviles screaming for help as she tried to stop the bleeding.
Aviles was arrested the early the next day in Bexar County with a gun in his waistband, and told police that he was in ‘an emotional situation’.
Austin police Lt. Gena Curtis told Statesman.com: ‘This had been an ongoing dispute between these families and it turned tragic, into a horrific act of violence with the death of two individuals.’
The court heard how Aviles and his wife would send threatening text messages to Norma Hurtado. In one message, Aviles threatened to kill Hurtado and her mother.

Doorstep killing: Norma Hurtado, 24, (left) and her mother Maria, 57, (right) were shot dead on the doorstep of their Southeast Austin home by Aviles in April 2011
Avile’s daughter had been dating Norma Hurtado, after they met in a Wendy’s burger bar, it was reported.
Aviles’ lawyers argued that Aviles’ actions were not motivated by hate but borne out of frustration at his own daughter abandoning her four-year-old child to see Norma Hurtado,
The jury took one hour to find Aviles guilty of capital murder, which means life without parole. Prosecutors are not seeking a death sentence.
Alicia Garcia, a family friend of Norma and Maria Hurtado, was given the opportunity to speak to Aviles in the court and was reported as saying: ‘(Norma’s) only error was loving the daughter that you never cared about.
‘She wanted the very best for your daughter and you know that’.
She said that Norma and her began dating when she was 16 after they met while working at Wendy’s.
Aviles leaned back in his chair as the verdict was translated into Spanish through his headphones.

Most of us never heard the name Blue Ivy until Jay-Z and Beyoncé welcomed their daughter into the world, but the celebrity power couple were unable to obtain a trademark for the beautiful moniker.
The Carters were unable to trademark their baby’s name after the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office sent a suspended letter to the couple for pending trademarks on their bundle of joy’s name, The Boston Herald reports. Instead, Boston-based wedding-planning company Blue Ivy is allowed to operate under the name, which it has been doing since 2009.
Veronica Alexandra, the 32-year-old owner of Blue Ivy, said she holds no ill will against Beyoncé or the star rapper, saying that she “highly respects” the “Crazy in Love” singer.
“I can’t be frustrated with something I think is going to bring me to produce and define my brand even more, which is financially exciting in itself and intellectually exciting as well,” she told the paper. “It’s like they caused me to create more opportunity for myself.”
Since she was born on January 7, Blue Ivy has taken the world by song. Her proud papa has rapped about her on songs like “Glory” and Rick Ross‘ “3 Kings,” while her mom has posted adorable baby pics on her Tumblr site.
In fact, Blue has become so popular that President Barack Obama doled out advice for Hov, so he can properly raise his little one. “I made sure that Jay-Z was helping Beyoncé out [with the baby], and not leaving it all with Beyoncé and the mother-in-law,” the POTUS said during a radio interview last week.
At its height, the beef between Gucci Mane and Young Jeezy got pretty ugly. And though things had seemingly died down, Gucc went on a Twitter tear this weekend, this time involving Keyshia Cole and T.I.
It all began when Gucci referred to the Snowman as a “sucka” during an interview with Power 105′s the Breakfast Club in New York on Wednesday. On Friday, the Young responded by calling Gucci “retarded” during a radio interview with Big Boy’s Neighborhood on Power 106 in Los Angeles immediately after Gucci dropped “Truth,” a scathing dis track and music video aimed at Jeezy. It’s no coincidence that Gucc is dropping his next mixtape Trap God on October 17 and the drama has gone a long way in raising awareness for the release.
The Zone 6 rapper didn’t stop there. He also took to Twitter and challenged Jeezy to a fight (and put some serious money up, too). “I Radric Davis aka Guwap bet 100K I can and will beat Jeezy ass #JUSTTRUTHS,” he wrote before roping T.I. into the feud as well. “No Disrespect to Clay but if Tip wanna get into it he can.”
Singer Keyshia Cole also got into the mix. On “Truth,” Gucci alleged that while the R&B star was dating Jeezy, she also carried on an affair with Diddy. “Putting all ya trust in some of these ‘Hood Rappers’.. How u gone be a G, and u spreading lies, To sell mix tapes! Where ya talent at,” Cole tweeted on Sunday. “I will continue 2 build what I’m working so hard accomplish! I’m married with a child, and don’t have no place in that none sense!”
After Jeezy appeared on Gucci’s 2005 single “Icy,” the relationship between the two spiraled out of control and even spilled into the streets, leading to Gucci shooting a known Jeezy affiliate in an incident that was dropped in court due to insufficient evidence. (Gucci admitted to shooting his assailants but maintained he was acting in self-defense.)
In 2009 DJ Drama orchestrated what looked to be a definitive truce on his Hot 107.9 radio show in Atlanta. During the joint interview, where Gucci phoned in from prison, the two made plans to record together, but that has yet to happen. On Friday, Gucci released an unedited version of the interview where he and Jeezy sounded very cordial. “He called a few times. I just told him it wasn’t a good idea, we past that. I don’t want to go backwards,” Jeezy said during his Friday interview. “He reached out a few times. I didn’t do the records, so I guess he feel a way.”
Gucci Mane is not happy that he’s called “retarded” by Young Jeezy. The Brick Squad rapper fires back in a song called “Truth”, taunting Jeezy by rapping about his ex Keyshia Cole having an affair with P. Diddy while she was still in a relationship with him.
“I did a song with Keyshia Cole and I know you still miss her/ But Puff was f***ing her while you was falling in love with her,” Mane tells the story. “For the record, this is not a diss record, Just the truth,” the Brick Squad rapper says on the hook.
While Jeezy hasn’t responded to the song, Keyshia has expressed her outrage. “That ain’t my business!! he’s lying! its all G tho,” she tweets. “Putting all ya trust in some of these ‘Hood Rappers’.. How u gone be a G, and u spreading lies, To sell mix tapes! Where ya talent at??”
“Basically. Dude ain’t have 2 lie tho! could’ve kept me out of it,” an upset Keyshia continues slamming Mane. “I will continue 2 build what I’m working so hard accomplish! I’m married with a child, and don’t have no place in that none sense!”
Mane and Jeezy actually have been feuding for quite a while. The former once publicly said he was done with his past beef with the latter, but in a Breakfast Club Interview recently, he reignited the war when he said, “I ain’t got no respect for him. I just did what I have to do.”
Jeezy later reacted in a chat with Power 106, “I feel like everybody know that boy retarded, nobody take him seriously.” He added, “He got an ice cream cone on his face. That being said, I’m not going back. I’m going forward. And then it’s crazy because they’ll call you and want you on songs. And then when you don’t get on a song, that’s what happens.”
The fight between Young Jeezy and Rick Ross at the BET Hip-Hop Awards was all caught on tape. According to TMZ.com, the video shows a brief scuffle between several people before security and police break up the fight. Security then stands between two groups of men as they yell back-and-forth. Rick Ross is then escorted from the fight area, but someone goes after him yelling. Security is quick to act and stop the man before he is able to get to Ross. The fight reportedly broke out Saturday night at the taping of the BET Awards in Atlanta. Atlanta Police have said that no one was injured during the fight and no arrests were made.

A startling video captures the moment a police officer apparently body slammed a 15-year-old girl to the ground during a street fight.
Police in Arlington, Texas are now investigating whether the force used by the unnamed officer was too extreme.
The incident was caught on a mobile phone camera after a venue kicked out teenagers for fighting, and their brawl escalated in the street.

The party, at 1010 Collins, had been closed down by the hall’s owner around midnight.
‘The teenage party got out of control because of the children,’ Edna Tijerina, general manager, told CBS.
‘They got in a couple of fights. At that point, our staff did follow protocol. What we did was stop the party and told everybody to go home.’
The fights then spread to the parking lot outside of the hall, where police arrived to ‘de-escalate the crowds and the fights’.
Amid the ruckus, a police officer apparently forcibly grabbed the teen girl as she ran away, raised her off the ground and slammed her to the floor.
As the crowd shouted obscenities at him, he pinned her to the ground and handcuffed her, as other police officers gathered on the scene.
The girl was arrested for fighting in public along with four others. She was taken into custody but later released to her parents, CBS reported.
In a statement on their Facebook page, the Arlington Police Department said they would be investigating the officer’s actions.
‘Several fights began to break out after a promoter ended the party close to midnight,’ it read. ‘Officers attempted to de-escalate… the fights.
‘Anytime an APD Officer uses force on a person, there is a multi-layer, impartial administrative review that occurs to review the force used.
‘This review will be conducted to determine if the level of force was reasonable as compared to the level of resistance.’
Police asked the public not to make a snap judgment about the video and appealed for any other footage to help them in their investigation.
‘What we look at: Was there force used? Was it reasonable, based upon the resistance that was being encountered?’ Sgt. Chris Cook said.
‘We can’t see in the video what happened before. We know what the officer said happened, but that’s under investigation.’
The officer has now been assigned to traffic duty while the investigation is ongoing, police said.
Hit making producer Bangladesh isn’t making any new friends in the industry. The Grammy winner is taking shots at none other than Swizz Beatz. Bangladesh claims Swizz isn’t relevant to today’s music scene.
The subject of relevance came up during an interview between Bangladesh and XXL Magazine. The “A Milli” beatsmith said Swizz Beatz wasn’t relevant because relevance has something to do with being youthful. Bangladesh explained Swizz Beatz isn’t as youthful as he would like the public to believe. “I don’t think Swizz is relevant,” the Young Money affiliate said.
Bangladesh went on to bring Alicia Keys into the mix, opining Alicia Keys is the one who gives Swizz the little bit of relevance he has now. “I think there’s a difference between relevance and musical relevance. You married a lady that’s poppin’ [Alicia Keys], you know it’ll give you a lot of relevance, but you gotta make hits. Ain’t no hits. Are you relevant for the craft you’re doing or the life you live as far as the decisions you make?”
Bangladesh concluded his thoughts by saying he was more relevant because he can relate to music’s youth. “The relevance is in being youthful. Still being in-the-know. I have a 15 year old son so they think we’re brothers and I put him on to stuff. You know, I’m 34 but people tell me I look 23. He still look to me for information. Usually it’s the opposite; usually the parents are lame or too old to understand or whatever. Just the way I feel, I got so much more time.”
What are your thoughts about Bangladesh’s comments? Is Bangladesh just talking reckless because he is experiencing success now?
The beef between “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” star, K. Michelle, and Toya Wright is still brewing beneath the surface. The drama stems from Michelle’s previous and unresolved issues during her relationship with Memphitz, who is currently married to Toya.
