Amber Rose Beats Wiz Khalifa’s Mother’s Defamation Lawsuit + Mel B & Stephan Belafonte’s MESSY Divorce Settlement Details

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 23-11-2017

We’ve got updates in the defamation case between Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa’s mother Katie "Peachie" Wimbush-Polk and a divorce settlement update between Mel B and her estranged husband Stephan Belafonte inside…

Wiz Khalifa’s mother Katie "Peachie" Wimbush-Polk TRIED it when she filed a defamation suit against her former daughter-in-law Amber Rose.

You’ll recall, Peachie pulled the trigger on a defamation lawsuit over a “profanity laced” phone call where Amber allegedly accused her — to a third party — of being a negligent parent.

That wasn’t all. Amber allegedly blamed Peachie for the death of Wiz’s sibling, Dorien. During a heated phone conversation, Amber said Peachie was now unfit to watch her little grandson Sebastian Thomaz (who Amber shares with Wiz). During their “war,” CPS was called on Amber, however, Peachie claims she “made no such report at or around that time.” She was gunning for $50,000 for court costs, interest, punitive and other damages.

Well, a Pennsylvania judge threw out the defamation lawsuit.

According to TMZ, the judge ruled, "Mere insults, indignities, threats, annoyances, petty oppressions, and other trivialities" do not give rise to a claim for emotional distress. Apparently, the their ongoing beef is just that, beef! No laws were broken.

Welp. There’s that. Let’s hope this keeps Wiz from having to keep them separated now that the case is closed.

In other legal news…

Mel B and her estranged husband Stephen Belafonte have finally come to a divorce settlement after a nasty, drawn out war in the media.

According to Life & Style, a judge has ordered Stephen to NOT release any of the 56 videos of “sexual nature” (aka sex tapes) that he has of his soon-to-be ex-wife.

“Stephen agreed to not release any of the videos he had shot of Mel, including sex tapes, and there are strict provisions in the agreement to enforce that,” a source told the site. “Stephen agreed to not release any of the videos he had shot of Mel, including sex tapes, and there are strict provisions in the agreement to enforce that."

As for the money…

Mel was ordered to cough up $40,000 a month in temporary spousal support and another $140,000 in attorney fees. Here’s how they’ll permanently split their finances:

“Mel and Stephen will split the proceeds from the sale of their [$8.9 million Hollywood Hills] mansion and he will receive $15,000 a month in support for five years,” the source leaked. “She also agreed to pay his legal fees, which were around $100,000.”

You’ll recall, Mel filed a restraining order against him. But, he’ll still get to spend time with their daughter Maddy. He’s getting more time with her now.

“He had supervised visitation with Maddy during the divorce proceedings,” the insider told the site. “Now Stephen will be allowed to have overnight unsupervised visits with her, which is a huge win for him.”

The source also claimed Mel isn’t too happy with the terms of the divorce, but she went ahead and signed. Likely, to get the mess over and done with. We can’t blame her.

Now, they both can move on with their lives…hopefully in peace.

Meanwhile…

Jay Z – ‘America Is Way More Sexist Than Racist’ + LeBron, D. Wade & Big Sean Hit Up 4:44 Tour In Detroit + Pete Rock Ethers Waka Flocka

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 23-11-2017

 photo jayzdetriot.png

Jay Z said publicly what we’ve been knowing about America for quite some time: It’s sexist AF. But, he let one young, black girl know during a recent concert that she can go as far as being the president of the United States if she wanted to. See the super cute exchange, celebs at Hov’s Detroit stop and see how Pete Rock ethered Waka Flocka inside…

Jay Z took the words right out of our mouths during his 4:44 concert at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland on Sunday (November 19th).

Stopping his set in between songs, he locked eyes with a young fan in the audience and decided to drop a few golden nuggets for her all the while publicly saying what we’ve been saying about America for years. He reminded the 9-year-old that she could be anything her heart desires, including being the President of the United States. Then, he reminded us all just how sexist America is.

“Now remember, like I was saying, you can be anything you want to be in the world,” he told the little girl who was jumping up and down as he spoke directly to her. “At this very moment, America is way more sexist then they are racist. But you young lady, you have the potential to be the next president of the United States. You believe that.”

Now, don’t get it twisted. Hov isn’t saying that racism doesn’t exist. We all know how prevalent racism is, and it’s MAJORLY prevalent. Across the board. Sexism is just as bad, yet people are just now begining to see that.  The effects of sexism can sometimes feel more pressing, especially to women of color, because it’s men of ALL races who can and do contribute to systematic sexism.  So the opression is compounded upon us by multiple structures and multiple groups.

Peep the clip below:

 

#444Tour

JAY-Z’s spontaneous conversation with a 9 year old girl:

"At this very moment America is way more sexist than they are racist, but you young lady, you got the potential to be the next president of the United States, you believe that."

Basically, when it comes to gender roles, America treats men superior to women, usually regardless of race. Bottom line, if a white employer (male or female) had to choose to promote either a black woman or a black man with the exact same level of talent (or even with a black woman being better), stats show he would likely promote that black man. Compounded opression.

At Hov’s Detroit stop, several YBFers were in attendance:

On Saturday, Jay Z rolled his 4:44 tour into Detroit where he performed at the Little Caesars Arena. He’s the first Hip Hop act to do so. Rapper Big Sean and Cleveland Cavaliers’ LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, J.R. Smith and Tristan Thompson were all in the audience.

Check out the fellas getting LIT as Hov performed above and below.

A post shared by Pete Rock (@realpeterock) on Nov 18, 2017 at 1:52pm PST

 

Old School vs. New School!

“Old Head” producer/rapper Pete Rock is tired of the new generation of rappers not paying homage and giving respect. And he has no problem calling them out on it. This time, he came at Waka Flocka for comments he made during an interview with This Is 50.

In the interview Waka, blamed the older generation for not “saving” Hip Hop and the issues that plagued the game. “We just as lost as y’all. Y’all not record execs,” he said. The Atlanta rapper even said he feels like the Jay Z or Nas of his generation.

Well, Pete had a response…and a lengthy one at that. He lit into Waka Flocka via his Instagram page. Here’s what he said:

"Im gonna defend my older heads and tell you your not equal. Be as disrespectful as you want. Your not doing what we did,havent accomplished what we accomplished.

Waka got word on Pete’s rant and popped back, threatening to slap him:

Well, a lot to say here on my BIRTHDAY post! Now being 41 couldn’t feel better- unless you’re extremely pregnant- with TWINS, due this January! It’s definitely a juggling act to post with two toddlers all day ——but one of my last posts I’ve been overwhelmed with love and support by you all, concerning my miscarriage earlier this year. I couldn’t tell you how much it meant to read your kind words and reading the stories you’ve shared about your personal struggle as well, with dealing with a miscarriage. It’s surreal to know that this pregnancy has been tough, as most are, but extremely joyful- my husband and 2 little daughters are anxiously awaiting the arrival of our new daughter and son!! I wanted to share this amazing news with you on my birthday, because children are The greatest gift one can receive from God. Please keep my little growing family in your prayers! When my husband asked me what I wanted for my birthday, did I really say that I wanted a washer and dryer #momlife

A post shared by Dominique Dawes (@daweser) on Nov 20, 2017 at 1:41pm PST

 

Gold medalist Dominique Dawes (and the original magical black girl Olympic gymnast) is pregnant with TWINS!  The 41-year-old mom of 2 is about to become a mom of four…this January!

The fab chick made the emotional announcement yesterday on her birthday, posing it up with her two daughters. 

Dominique revealed in February that she and her husband had been struggling with conceiving, and unfortunately suffered a miscarriage.

She decided to be transparent in sharing her story on social media saying:

Yes, I am putting myself out there and saying this is the toughest thing I’ve ever been through, acknowledging the fact that we lost a child in utero. I know so many women out there have been through this, but it doesn’t make it easier. First, I was in complete DENIAL& ASHAMED…I’ve been holding onto HOPE that there is still a fighting chance that this isn’t true, but I’m facing the certain reality that it is the hard truth. ACCEPTANCE!

She continued:

Every pregnancy is so intimate and personal. It still hurts. But, having God, a loving husband (who has totally stepped up and cleans the dishes every night now) and my 2 most precious and prized gifts–my two baby girls to comfort me and stand with me through these tough days. Knowing the reality and accepting this miscarriage, has brought me to a better place. At first I was ashamed and blamed myself, like I did something wrong. Now I’m looking forward with HOPE for the future! I know there are women out there who have and are going through this reality.

The story has a happy ending, though, as the twins will be here in less than two months.

Congrats Dominique!

Are You Feelin’ Zendaya’s Look To Unveil Bloomingdale’s Holiday Windows + Kelly Rowland Serves Up LOOKS For ‘GMA’ + Jada Pinkett Smith Takes ‘Girls Trip’ In Paris

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 22-11-2017

Find out what Zendaya, Kelly Rowland and Jada Pinkett Smith have been up to this week when you go inside…

It’s about that time to link up with family and friends for a Thanksgiving feast. But before Zendaya, Kelly Rowland and Jada Pinkett Smith get into the holiday spirit, here’s what they’re up to….

 photo ZendayaColeman2017BloomingdaleHolidayL8rd0ZnOyR4l.jpg

Zendaya jetted to NYC as she was tapped to unveil the 2017 Bloomingdale’s Holiday Windows, a staple event to kick off the holiday season.

This year’s windows were inspired by a new movie the 21-year-old actress is starring in titled, The Greatest Showman. Pieces from the brand new capsule for Bloomingdale’s house line, AQUA, were featured, putting looks together that would inspire someone heading out to attend holiday parties.

We guess her look is on theme with the movie?

 photo ZendayaColeman2017BloomingdaleHoliday2FSD41QtlzVl.jpg

“We took the elements and the ideas of the movie and made them make sense for someone who is going to a cocktail party,” the actress told PeopleStyle. “And there’s a lot of glitter and a lot of shine going on, so if you literally pair anything with a simple, pointy toe black pump, then you’re good to go.”

 photo ZendayaColeman2017BloomingdaleHolidayQy7pIFHz7Xrl.jpg

One window got the “Rewrite the Stars” treatment, which is an ode to a song Zendaya sings with Zac Efron in the movie.

With Black Friday just days away, Daya was asked if she would be participating in the biggest shopping day of the year. “I don’t go,” she said. “I’m always afraid because it’s the busiest time to go. The best thing for me is wait until the online one comes out, and do everything online.”

LIFE AFTER ‘RHOA’: Phaedra Parks Proves You Can Be A WILHELMINA Model At Any Age (& Height), Has No Problem Posing Nude

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 22-11-2017

 photo WHIL1.jpg

Life after “Real Housewives of Atlanta” is going swimmingly for Phaedra Parks. She just inked a deal with Wilhelmina Models defying the model standards.  So she says. And she has no problem stripping down to the nude. Deets inside…

Phaedra Parks may not be holding a peach on “Real Housewives of Atlanta” any more, but don’t count her out just yet.

At the age of 44 and standing at 5’1, Phaedra is reinventing the model standard. She just inked a modeling contract with Wilhelmina Models. Nope, not as their legal counsel.  But a s a real model.  Beauty comes in all shapes, sizes, ages and color. And Phaedra is taking advantage of a huge opportunity to add to her lengthy resume.

“I think I’m the face of ‘yes you can.’” Phaedra told US magazine about her new modeling contract. “I’m a small town girl who has followed her dreams. Yes you can be a mom, yes you can be a lawyer and yes you can be a model. When the opportunity presented itself some people asked me ‘Why?’ and I said ‘Why not?’ A supermodel started this company and she wanted to give power back to the women and I think I stand for the same things. I have the opportunity to show people that beauty can come in every size, shade, color and age. It’s exciting and an adventure!”

We can’t lie, this revenge body is SICK.  She’s being accused by commenters on social media of being photoshopped to the high heavens, but chick looks good.

 photo WHIL3.jpg

The lawyer/mortician posed it up in a Diana Ross-inspired photoshoot while dishing on her model influences, which include Naomi Campbell. But, she also name dropped Nicki Minaj. We’re a bit confused there.

“She’s [Nicki Minaj] done such a great job reinventing herself and changing the standards of beauty. And she’s been a big supporter of me.”

Oh.

 photo WHIL2.jpg

As we all know, models have to keep naked sometimes for photoshoots. And the mom-of-two doesn’t mind at all.

“I don’t mind baring it all, I have been wearing g-strings and baring it all really every season for seven years,” she said. “I had two children on national T.V. I love nudity! I’ve brought a lot of exotic entertainers on the show, so I love my body and I’ve got curves. I’m a mother of two children, so I’m not perfect, but I have no problem getting naked.”

Well go head Phae Phae.

You can read her full interview here.

By the way, Phaedra also may be returning to reality TV with her own BRAVO series. Deets on that HERE.

Gabby Douglas Says She Was Sexually Abused By Gymnastics Doctor Who Just Pleaded Guilty To Molestation + Black ‘Lenny Letter’ Writer Quits & TRASHES Lena Dunham

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 22-11-2017

Following her teammates, Gabby Douglas has come forward to say Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar sexually assaulted her also. Also, he just pled guilty to molestation. “Lenny Letter” writer Zinzi Clemmons quit after Lena Dunham rape comments. Everything inside…

Olympic gold medalist Gabby Doulgas has come forward about being sexually assaulted by Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar, following two of her “Fierce Five” teammates coming forward.

After her teammates Aly Raisman and McKayla Maroney spoke up about the abuse they endured, the three-time Olympic gold medalist released a statement via Instagram explaining why she hadn’t come forward earlier, saying “we were conditioned to stay silent."

"I didn’t publicly share my experiences as well as many other things because for years we were conditioned to stay silent and honestly some things were extremely painful," she wrote. "I wholeheartedly support my teammates for coming forward with what happened to them."

She continued:

"I didn’t view my comments as victim shaming because I know no matter what you wear, it NEVER gives anyone the right to harass or abuse you. It would be like saying that because of the leotards we wore, it was our fault that we were abused by Larry Nassar. I didn’t publicly share my experiences as well as many other things because for years we were conditioned to stay silent and honestly some things were extremely painful. I wholeheartedly support my teammates for coming forward with what happened to them."

Read her full post below:

 

please hear my heart

A post shared by Gabby Douglas (@gabbycvdouglas) on Nov 21, 2017 at 12:16pm PST

 

The timing of this unfortunate reveal is interesting.

Gabby began to receive backlash earlier this week about "victim shaming" after she responded to her teammate Aly Raisman’s post. Aly encouraged women to wear whatever they feel good in. Gabby responded saying it’s “our responsibility as women to dress modestly and be classy" and that dressing provocatively "entices the wrong crowd."

Chile…

Folks wasted no time in saying "She’s cancelled."

Teammate Simone Biles joined the conversation, siding with Aly while insinuating she expected more from Gabby.  She also threw shade saying she’s "not surprised" by Gabby’s actions. 

We knew something was up with Gabby during the Rio Olympics last year, and we can only wonder if this whole ordeal was weighing on her then.

Gabby says her initial words were a mistake.  Hmm.

Speaking of Larry….

Former Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar, 54, reportedly pleaded guilty to seven counts of sexual assault in Ingham County (Mich.) Circuit Court today. He was accused of molesting several young athletes while working with the United States Gymnastics teams and Michigan State University.

You’ll recall, former Michigan State University student Tiffany Lopez pulled the trigger on a sexual assault lawsuit against the physician last year.

He’s being accused of assaulting more than 130 women and girls, including Gabby Douglas, Aly Raisman, and McKayla Maroney.

The former physician will be in court for sentencing on January 12th where victims will have the opportunity to speak. He’s facing at least 25 years in prison.

Digusting.

In other news…

“Lenny Letter” writer Zinzi Clemmons just quit following rape statements made by Lena Dunham. Lena accused actress Aurora Perrineau of lying about being raped by "Girls" writer Murray Miller.

By the way, “Lenny Letter” is a weekly online feminist newsletter created by Lena Dunham and Jennifer Konne.

Author Zinzi Clemons took to social media to announce her resignation and explained why she made the decision. She also encouraged other writers, specifically women of color, to take a stand and do the same.

“As a result of Lena Dunham’s statements, I have decided that I will no longer write for Lenny Letter, Zinzi wrote on Facebook. “For all you writers who are outraged about what she did, I encourage you to do the same. Especially women of color. She cannot have our words if she cannot respect us.”

She went on to talk about Lena’s "hipster racism" antics, citing her own personal experiences with her even before she became famous.

By the way, Marley is all the way here for a sibling.  Eva told People magazine:

“I said, ‘Marley, would you like to have a little brother or sister?’ And she said, ‘Yes, Mom, but you know what? Maybe a baby brother. Make it a brother,’ ” the 33-year-old mom-to-be recalls of the sweet conversation between herself and her little girl.

 

And apparently, Marley’s dream came true:

“I thought that was adorable, but at the time, I had no idea what I was having, so my fear [about] this extremely expressive and outgoing young girl [was] if this baby came out to be a little girl, that might not be a great situation for Marley,” adds Marcille with a laugh.

“However, I found out soon after that I was having a boy, and I felt like she willed it in her favor. I’m beyond elated to be having a boy.”

Sweet!

But not everyone is happy for Eva and her man.  Her ex and Marley’s father, singer Kevin McCall, is known to get extra petty (and reportedly volatile) when it comes to their relationship.  They went through Tyrese-levels of foolishness a few years ago, which all played out on social media.

Today, he had a petty congrats for the couple:

 

Looks like congratulation are in order cheers! PS: Where do I Register?

Not sure how he "dodged a bullet" when he has a child with Eva just like Michael does now.  But whatevs.

Eva and Michael are very likely completely unbothered.  The "Scared Famous" reality star has been gushing about her bae for months:
