Cardi B’s ex-boyfriend Tommy Geez has been released jail.

If you watched “Love & Hip Hop” when Cardi was on there, you saw her talk about Tommy while holding him down after he was arrested on gun possession charges. He spent four years behind bars.

The twosome ended up breaking up in 2016 while he was still behind bars due to her newfound fame. We saw them argue a lot on the phone as Tommy was upset that Cardi wasn’t giving him the attention he needed. But she couldn’t. Her career was taking off, so they decided to part ways.

Now, he’s out.

Peep a clip of him greeting his friends after he was released below:

The Harlem native is also a rapper who started his own independent label, O3GMG.

Hmm…we wonder if Mona Scott Young will call him up for a spot on "Love & Hip Hop?" We wouldn’t be surprised.

In other Cardi news…

Over the weekend, Cardi B and rapper Fabolous whipped out their furs, leather jackets and bloody shoes to perform at Delaware State University’s homecoming.

Peep a clip below: 


Cardi B is still riding the wave of her hit chart topper “Bodak Yellow” (which spent three weeks at the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100).

The former "Love & Hip Hop" star just signed a worldwide publishing deal with Sony/ATV Music Publishing. Bloody moves!

“Oooo, I’m so happy to be with my new family Sony/ATV,” she told Variety. “‘Bodak Yellow’ is only the beginning and we’re just getting started.”

Nice. Congrats Cardi! Cardi’s ex-Tommy should seriously consider that "LAHH" gig if it’s offered to him. Look where it got her.

 

Tonight…

When you tell the world about your man’s fetish, you best believe THOTville will add that ammunition to their get-to-your-man arsenal.  Check out how a former porn star just tried to get at Steph Curry inside…

Yeah, she has a new digital show to promote with Gilbert Arenas.  But former porn star turned host Mia Khalifa got extra bold last night, but was it all the name of PR stunts?

Recently, Ayesha Curry was on "The Real" and revealed her NBA champ hubby Steph Curry has a foot fetish.  She said:

"So… this is going to turn into a whole other thing. But my husband really loves my feet. And so like the light was hitting them just right that day. And so I was like let me just snap this photo and send him a picture of my feet. So I always say when he says to send nudes like that’s what he’s getting a picture of my bare feet."

Y’all know plenty of chicks probably started sending Steph their feet. So Mia decided to hop in with her nude….feet.

Sup, @StephenCurry30? pic.twitter.com/A2Qlx0cNe4

Messy. Because y’all know she was at least half serious about that slide through…

SAD NEWS: ‘Project Runway’ Designer Mychael Knight Has Died After Battling Illness

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 17-10-2017

 photo Designer_Mychael_Knight_at_Charleston_Fashion_Week_zpsjs4olf1k.jpg

In surprising and sad news, designer Mychael Knight has passed away at the age of 39.  We have the full story inside.

Mychael Knight, who rose to fame during his season 3 stint on "Project Runway," passed away after battling an ongoing illness.

The news has been confirmed by Obvious Magazine which is run by his close friend Jerris Madison

 

The news comes on the heels of his friends in media calling for prayers.

Mychael shared pics of himself over the spring and summer, but postings became fewer in recent weeks. He spoke out about his illness — severe IBS that took a toll on his immune system — this past July:

He was busy styling Sherri Shepherd last year. He also went through with his SS18 show last month, and it showcased his amazing talent that got him noticed years ago:

 photo 18209139_1846457952282411_6434490003433017341_o_zpsnfikcmsp.jpg

His best friend, Satchel Jester, has also spoken out with a heartfelt message:

 

Unconventional superheroes. Perfectly in-sync misfits. Frazzled yin and yang. Total badasses. Indestructible forces. Power players. Dynamic duo. All these could have easily been labels for us. In fact, some were. I’ve never known a friend like you, and it’s likely that I never will again. Nothing mattered but the mountains we climbed and the doors we kicked down. Nothing but knowing that it would take Armageddon to stop us from getting to the top. You were part of introducing a culture and you let me ride with you. You shared your stage and let me handle your talent in its most delicate phases. You let me frame your magic. You had my back. I’ll love you forever for that. Forever. You give the words “BEST FRIEND” and “BROTHER” meaning in ways I never thought I’d know. Thank you. Now sleep tight. You deserve it. I’ve got it from here. What’s coming is for you! Well done my friend.

Mychael rose to fame during and after his "Project Runway" appearance, wining season three’s Fan Favorite award and placed fourth in the overall competition.  We covered him and his shows often here on TheYBF.com and we’re incredibly saddened by this news.

R.I.P. Mychael.  Our sincere condolences go out to his family, friends, and fans.

"X Factor" Finalist Stacy Francis SLAMS Rihanna Over ‘Beating’ Chris Brown + Usher & Friends Hit The Skating Ring For 39th Birthday

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 17-10-2017

 photo stacyusherteaser.jpg

"X Factor" Finalist Stacy Francis has plenty to say about the Chris Brown/Rihanna scandal that went down years ago. Find out why she’s slamming Rihanna, plus peep pics of Usher partying it up for his 39th birthday with his celeb friends inside…

 photo sfrancis1.jpg

Chris Brown’s ‘Welcome To My Life’ documentary hit Netflix this month. And in it, he spills all the tea about that GRAMMY night when he and then girlfriend Rihanna got into a physical altercation that threatened his career.

"X Factor" Finalist Stacy Francis peeped the documentary and decided to give her own personal commentary via her Facebook page. She recalls the night news broke that Breezy had assaulted RiRi. She says the media spun the story as if the “Loyal” singer was the only one throwing jabs when actually, the “Work” singer was allegedly the one who started the physical altercation.

She went on to say that Rihanna should apologize for hitting Chris, claiming she never said sorry and that she only played victim.  Hmm….

Peep her commentary below:

 

I love u @chrisbrown. I remember the nite of the fight w/Rihanna. I still am waitin for her 2 publicly apologize to u. smh We knew the truth

— Stacy Francis (@stacyfrancis) October 15, 2017

 

Completely ignoring what Chris did as well isn’t the way to go about this.  But do you agree with her?

Speaking of Chris:

Birthday festivities were in full effect in L.A. for Usher’s 39th birthday. Amid the current herpes scandal, the R&B crooner is still finding reasons to smiles. And a few of his celebrity friends, including Mr. Brown, were in the mix to help him out.

Jermaine Dupri, Chris Brown, Ludacris, Russell Simmons, Omarion, Stevie Wonder and more came out to celebrate with their homie at the World of Wheels skating ring.

Winning? Bow Wow Is Turning His Constant L’s Into TV Shows

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 17-10-2017

 photo Screen Shot 2017-10-17 at 1.23.38 PM_zpsdqkgyacc.png

Leave it to Bow Wow to change his L’s into W’s.  Well, according to him that is.  Find out why he was dragged all over social media once again and his response….

Bow Wow is no stranger to getting dragged for a social media post. It’s almost like he likes it or something.

This time, he went and posted a pic of the iconic Death Row Records squad with himself photoshopped in.  He says a fan mad it and sent, and he thought it was pretty tight.

Given, Bow was "discovered" by Snoop Dogg and even worked on Death Row (no albums came out, but he was associated with the label) way back in the day for a bit.  But if they wanted him in the family pic, he would have been there.  Right?

Bow Wow doesn’t care, and he’s here for the photoshop flex:

 

Where it all started! The family tree #strandedon #legacy #legendary #deathrow #hiphop #kidgangsta #fanmade

A post shared by Bow wow (@shadmoss) on Oct 16, 2017 at 9:34am PDT

 

Of course, folks started coming for him for this foolishness.  It was the #BowWowChallenge all over again.

 photo 844x1500.jpeg.bec8b546f9804073acecf1c40b45d73b_zpsjmicofne.jpg Ha.

Then, he started providing "receipts" when folks had ALL the questions about why he posted this:

 

What is #BowWow talking about?

A post shared by Bow wow (@shadmoss) on Oct 17, 2017 at 2:02am PDT

 

But it looks like the joke may be on everybody else, because Bow landed a few tv shows out of all the hoopla. He claims he’s dropping three new shows, including one called Bow Wow Challenge. Ha! He’s still filming a new season of "Growing up Hip Hop ATL," is doing a show about Greenlighting in the industry, and has another show in the works as well.

 

 

Listen, make that money Bow. Don’t let it make you…

50-year-Old R.Kelly Threw His 22-Year-Old Girlfriend A Birthday Party Where They Dressed Alike

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 17-10-2017

 photo Screen Shot 2017-10-17 at 11.39.06 AM_zpslflrlhwc.png

R. Kelly is putting his (legal) relationship on front street these days.  He threw his girlfriend who’s more than half his age a pink-balloon filled birthday party over the weekend.  If they like it…

 photo Screen Shot 2017-10-17 at 11.39.13 AM_zpsom8wgtkg.png

 

We’ve been knowing about the Pied Piper’s super young girlfriend Halle Calhoun for over a year now.  She seems quite proud to be the singer’s main chick, despite the recent hot water he’s been in after he was exposed for allegedly running a sex cult with underaged girls and young women.

Many believe all the women who are seemingly in his harem have been brainwashed into not leaving his side.  The women have completely cut off communication and ties to their own families.  Halle seems to be allowed to be on social media more than the other young women living with R. Kelly.  We hear that’s because she’s his "main" and gets special privileges.

That would explain why she received this birthday party over the weekend.  The two dressed alike in all red and black get-ups and Halle gushed about how thankful she was for the party on her IG pics and stories:

 

Thank you for such an unbelievable birthday!!!! @rkelly #suchasurprise #rkelly #hallecalhoun

It’s unclear if the other women, like Jocelyn Savage whose parents have been trying to get her back home, were there to celebrate too.

 

In other news, women are still acting a fool over Kellz:

‘LAHH: Hollywood” Star Alexis Skyy CONFIRMS (Again) She’s Pregnant With Fetty Wap’s Baby

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 17-10-2017

 photo alexispreg.png

Yes, Alexis Skyy is indeed pregnant and she wants everyone to know its Fetty Wap’s baby. More inside…

 

The rumors are true.

Dancer Alexis Skyy is pregnant, which means, she’s joining the bevy of women who have conceived children with rapper Fetty Wap. Don’t even ask us how many he has. We believe the number is at 5-6 after introducing his newest baby girl, Lauren, last month.

Last night, Part 1 of “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood” premiered. Alexis put the rumors to rest and confirmed she’s carrying Fetty’s baby. Producers had her sit backstage to film since she and Fetty’s other baby mama Masika Kalysha hate each other.

As soon as they introduced Alexis, she and Masika were at each other’s necks about this pregnancy. Alexis’ ex-boyfriend Solo Lucci was also there and she made it clear he’s NOT the father, Fetty is.  Chile folks are DETERMINED to get off the pole any way they can.

Check it below at the 4:30 mark:

During the airing of the show, here’s what Masika had to say about it all:

Apparently, this isn’t the first time she has confirmed this news. She has thrown up a few Instagram posts, visiting the doctor and tagging Fetty, along with a video showing off her growing bump:

Rape Survivor Gabrielle Union Gives More Infertility Details, Has An Epic Response To Rape Victim-Blaming + Rapper Khia Is Completely Out Of Line In Response

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 17-10-2017

 photo GabrielleUnionGodLoveDeliverGoldenHeartxgJTjL5JJMfl_zpsxhgrn9hx.jpg

Gabrielle Union has had it with people’s victim-blaming in response to sexual harassment. So she let everybody HAVE IT. Find out what the rape survivor herself had to say, plus what she’s now saying about her infertility struggles.

 

Oh, and rapper Khia is completely out of line for what she said about Gabby’s 9 miscarriages.

 photo GabrielleUnionGodLoveDeliverGoldenHeartR0mlMI-oT8xl_zpsa4uzytzu.jpg 

Mrs. Union-Wade, pictured above at the 11th Annual Golden Heart Awards benefiting God’s Love We Deliver last night in NYC, has had it with folks victim blaming.  She’s been open about her rape as a young teen working at Payless shoe store.  So she has a first hand perspective on how rape and the aftermath truly affects victims for the rest of their lives.

With the Harvey Weinstein sexual assault fall-out reaching epic proportions, some folks are making a point to say they were never harrassed because they carried themselves properly.  Oh?!

"Blossom" turned "The Big Bang Theory" star Mayim Bialik wrote an op-ed for the NY Times recently.  She’s an outspoken conservative (meaning she is vocal about dressing and parenting a certain way) child star turn adult actor.  And her views on parenting and feminism have always been a bit…interesting.

Now, even though she makes it clear women "can wear whatever they want," her comments in the op-ed seem to still victim blame.

She said:

"…I always made conservative choices as a young actress, largely informed by my first-generation American parents who were highly skeptical of this industry in general…

I have also experienced the upside of not being a “perfect ten.” As a proud feminist with little desire to diet, get plastic surgery or hire a personal trainer, I have almost no personal experience with men asking me to meetings in their hotel rooms. Those of us in Hollywood who don’t represent an impossible standard of beauty have the “luxury” of being overlooked and, in many cases, ignored by men in power unless we can make them money."

This is where she messed up:

"I still make choices every day as a 41-year-old actress that I think of as self-protecting and wise. I have decided that my sexual self is best reserved for private situations with those I am most intimate with. I dress modestly. I don’t act flirtatiously with men as a policy."

Folks took this "i don’t act flirtatious with men or dress provacatively" statement to mean those who were assaulted did, and therefore brought it on themselves.  Why even mention this?

She seemingly recognized how this would be intepreted, and continued in her essay saying we can’tbe naive about the culture we live in.  So she seemingly still puts the onus on women to police their own assaults:

"I am entirely aware that these types of choices might feel oppressive to many young feminists. Women should be able to wear whatever they want. They should be able to flirt however they want with whomever they want. Why are we the ones who have to police our behavior?

In a perfect world, women should be free to act however they want. But our world isn’t perfect. Nothing — absolutely nothing — excuses men for assaulting or abusing women. But we can’t be naïve about the culture we live in.

I believe that we can change our culture, but it won’t be something that happens overnight. We live in a society that has treated women as disposable playmates for far longer than Mr. Weinstein has been meeting ingénues in luxury hotel rooms."

Gabrielle Union isn’t here for this.  At all.  She responded about her own rape, saying she was attacked while working at a Payless shoe store.  So, she was wearing a tunic and pants.  And was still raped.

Ugh.

She continued:

Preach Gabby!

 photo 6e007c75ec0_zpsifqh2kt0.jpg

The We’re Going To Need More Wine author also hit "Good Morning America" today (pictured above making her entrance and leaving in different looks) to discuss her fertility struggles, harassment and more with Robin Roberts:

When Gabby first spoke on her struggles with fertility, she revealed she has had about 9 miscarriages. Leave it to rapper Khia to say some foul ish about her in response.
