Beyoncé Hired to Perform at Wedding for Indian Billionaire’s Daughter (PHOTOS + VIDEOS)

I’ma let you finish, but Isha Ambani had one of the best weddings of all time!

The most lavish Indian wedding of the year is currently underway in the northwestern state of Rajasthan, as 27-year-old Isha Ambani—daughter of the country’s wealthiest man—prepares to tie the knot with businessman Anand Piramal.

While the actual ceremony won’t be held until Wednesday (Dec. 12) at the bride’s family residence in Mumbai, celebrations kicked off over the weekend at Udaipur’s City Palace.

According to Forbes, the bride’s father, Mukesh Ambani is chair of the multinational conglomerate Reliance Industries is worth more than $47 BILLION, which means that no expense was spared for Isha’s wedding—including the fact that Isha’s family booked Beyoncé to perform a private concert for her “sangeet,” which is basically a pre-wedding night of music and dance traditionally hosted by the bride’s family.

Isha and her husband-to-be’s marriage marks the latest high-profile ceremony in this year’s wedding season, which usually runs from November to February—a period considered to be the most auspicious time to wed, according to Hindu astrology.

Actress Priyanka Chopra and American singer Nick Jonas, both of whom were attendance at the weekend’s festivities in Udaipur, tied the knot last week in their own extravagant wedding ceremony.

Other celebrity guests included Bill and Hillary Clinton and well-known author Ariana Huffington.

Jacquees Called Himself the Current King of R&B and the Internet Was Like “Nah, Son.”

Either Jacquees fell and bumped his head or he’s out here doing hardcore drugs.

The “B.E.D.” singer sparked a huge internet debate over the weekend when he called himself the “King of R&B.”

He said in a video posted on his Instagram page:

“I just want to let everybody know that I’m the king of R&B right now…for this generation. I understand who done came and who done did that and that and that but now it’s my turn. Jacquees, the king of R&B. I just heard em said and I feel it. ATL, let’s get it. I’m the king of R&B.”

Instagram Photo

The reactions were swift (and hilarious). A number of male R&B singers chimed in on the debate, scratching their heads and basically laughing at Jacquees.

Tank came through with his take, saying that, in his opinion, R. Kelly is the King of R&B.

“The accusations don’t disqualify what he’s accomplished,” Tank wrote on Instagram. “Second, if you can’t go to the studio BY YOURSELF and make a hit record, you’re not my king. If you can’t sing it better live, you’re not my king! I appreciate all the talent out there but we are using the word ‘King’ way too loosely!”

Instagram Photo

Tyrese shared similar sentiments, writing on Instagram: “Let me put you up on what’s really movin bruh. This ain’t Hip Hop my n*gha. You can’t come in this game, get hot for a year and then try a #T69 n*ghas and throw that there word KING around… Imma keep it a stack with you… The young kings of your generation that’s been runnin sh*t is 1 [Chris Brown] and 2 [Trey Songz] … BIG facts!”

He continued: “FYI the last real R&B album through and through that has the integrity and blueprint of the culture that was made with NO skips was Three Kings. You got this out of the T69 play book stop trolling my n*gha and get back in the booth…”

Instagram Photo

J. Holiday even crawled out of his unmade bed of irrelevance (again) and attempted to list who he believes are R&B Kings, all while being hilariously mistaken for a valet person.

Instagram Photo

Eric Bellinger laughed the whole thing off, saying: “N***as gotta put a lil more time in. [They] gotta actually have some hits, some consistency.”

Instagram Photo

Chris Brown said he was “loving all the R&B love”.

Instagram Photo

Pleasure P also chimed in with a message to J. Holiday, saying: “You know I love you bro but i want all the smoke. Let lil bro @jacquees [live]. I’m all the way in Fiji but I got time today. Let’s do a friendly competition between all of us in R&B and see who put out the hottest record!! Tell me what day n time and I’m ready for whoever… Love you bro but you wrong.”

Instagram Photo

He added: “Everybody like what they like. Nobody should be the king of anything. Everybody got hits. Everybody should tour together and uplift each other. That’s the problem with R&B ni**as. R&B ni**as always wanna act like they better than [the other].”

Instagram Photo

Kehlani also offered her take, saying that Beyoncé is the King of R&B, but Jacquees wasn’t trying ot hear that. “You spelt my name wrong twin,” he tweeted at her.

Diddy shared his opinion as well, basically letting folks know, without calling anyone out specifically, that in order to be the King of R&B you need to make actual R&B music.

Tory Lanez didn’t seem too pleased with the Jacquees slander though, tbh.

Meanwhile, Twitter went all the way AWF with the best reactions, including a bunch of jokes and hilarious memes:

Ty Dolla $ign Facing Up to 15 Years in Prison for Felony Cocaine Possession, Rapper Says He’s 100% Innocent

Ty Dolla $ign has been indicted on drug charges, including two felony counts, that could see him spending up to 15 years of his life behind bars, TMZ reports.

According to the gossip site, Ty was indicted for felony possession of cocaine, felony possession of THC and misdemeanor possession of less than an ounce of weed.

In September, Dolla $ign was arrested in Fulton County, Georgia (Atlanta) when police allegedly found drugs in his bag after the limo van he was riding in was pulled over and searched.

The video of his arrest (above) showed a chaotic scene—drug dogs were barking like crazy before Ty was handcuffed. Prior to his arrest, cops forced everyone, including Skrillex (who was riding with Dolla $ign) out of the limo van and searched them. Ty, however, was the only one who got arrested.

If convicted, Ty Dolla $ign could face up to 15 years in prison.

A rep for the singer-rapper told TMZ: “[Ty] understands from his attorney Steve Sadow that the indictment in Fulton County, Georgia is merely the next mandatory procedural step in the process of resolving Ty’s case in that particular criminal justice system, and one more step closer to finally bringing this matter to a close. It was expected by Ty’s legal counsel and came as no surprise whatsoever.”

The rep added: “Ty maintains his innocence and there is no indication to the contrary. It’s also very important to note that Ty’s jewelry and cash seized from him upon his arrest in September 2018 was ordered returned to him last week … another clear sign that this matter is coming to a close soon.”

So Sad: Mother Loses All 4 of Her Children in Fatal Car Accident in South Carolina

A South Carolina mother is mourning the death of her four children following a fatal car crash they were involved in over the weekend.

Jackie Brown—who is originally from Jersey City, New Jersey, but now resides in South Carolina—lost all four of her children in a car accident in Travelers Rest, S.C. Three were killed instantly in the crash and the fourth died later at the hospital.

Here’s what you need to know about Jackie Brown (aka “Jaz Mire Brown”) and her four children:

Jackie Brown’s four children were riding in a van when the driver lost control and hit several trees.

South Carolina Highway Patrol trooper Joe Hovis told WSPA 7 News that 27-year-old Arnez Yaron Jamison was driving north on Mountain Creek Road (Highway 253) around 12:28 a.m. early Friday morning (Dec. 7) when he lost control of his vehicle, ran off the road and struck several trees.

There were a total of five people in the van Jamison was driving, including himself and four children.

Three of the four children—4-year-old Arnez Yaron Jamison Jr., 6-year-old Robbiana Evans, and 8-year-old Jamire Halley—all died at the scene of the single-vehicle crash, Hovis said.

The fourth child in the vehicle was severely injured and taken to the hospital, along with Jamison. The fourth child, whose name wasn’t released to the media, later died of their injuries.

Brown wrote on Facebook that losing all of her four children at once was “the worst pain” she’s ever felt.

The children’s mother, Jackie Brown, wrote on Facebook Friday:

“4 faces ill never see again. Y’all broke mommy with this. Y’all made me so strong, at times I thought I was weak. This was never part of my plan, I love y’all and I’ll see y’all real soon. IDK how to make it without y’all here with me … Rest well, [mommy’s] angels, the worst pain I’ve ever felt #PrayForMe. I love y’all with all my heart, y’all was my heart, y’all kept me going.”

She wrote in another post:

“They taught me how to live, but never taught me how to live without them. This dream is so unreal, but I know my gramz got them in good hands, [mommy’s] angels.”

A GoFundMe page has been created to help Brown with funeral expenses.

A GoFundMe page has been set up on behalf of the mother, who goes by the name “Jaz Mire Brown” on Facebook, to help her with expenses to help lay her children to rest.

“Jackie was a wonderful loving mother,” the page reads. “Last night she lost 3 children instantly. The baby is in ICU brain dead, so Jackie has lost her whole world all at [once]. Please help Jackie properly lay her babies to rest.”

The GoFundMe has so far raised at least $22,000 of its $50,000 goal. The page is currently trending in the “memorial fundraising” section of GoFundMe.

Brown thanked everyone for their support on Facebook Friday in a third post about unexpectedly losing her children.

“I always told y’all everything will be [OK and] now mommy is not OK,” she wrote. “I needed y’all, why did y’all leave me like this. I see this everyday all over the world but not in a million years ID’ ever think I’d be burying my heart … Mommy [loves] y’all forever, it don’t stop here. To all my family and friends, I love y’all. Thank y’all for every call, text, post, donation, everything.”

The children died from blunt force trauma, according to the coroner’s report. The driver was reportedly not wearing a seatbelt.

Robbiana Evans, 6, was in kindergarten, and Jamire Halley, 8, was in third grade. According to the Greenville County Coroner’s Office, both of them were students at Gateway Elementary School in Travelers Rest. The children died from blunt force trauma, the coroner’s report revealed.

“Very, very tragic accident,” Jim Dickson, who lives near the scene of the accident, told 7News.

Investigators couldn’t confirm whether or not the children were wearing seat belts. They said Jamison, the driver, was not, but they believe the child that was taken to the hospital was.

“Those children were her strength. She lost everything. She lost everything,” said Crystal Griffith, who has worked with Jackie Brown at the KFC and Taco Bell in Travelers Rest for about a year. “She’s not taking it well,” Griffith said. “These children were this lady’s life.”

Griffith said Brown would often bring her children to work with her, and the children were always respectful and polite. “We all watched these babies,” she said. “These children would sit at a table and color.”

Memories of the children’s frequent visits have made it difficult for some of Brown’s co-workers. “It’s hard to even concentrate in this place thinking about her,” Griffith said. “All we can hear is her babies. Her babies.”

“I can’t even explain it. She is the strongest lady I have ever met. She came from the bottom. It was all about her kids,” Griffith said. “Every week she was taking her kids to the mall to walk around. Every penny went to her children.”

Griffith said Brown was just telling her co-workers how she had already bought Christmas presents for her children, and how one of her daughters opened of her gifts, a baby doll, while Brown as in the shower. “I couldn’t go to sleep last night without calling her and letting her know we love her,” Griffith said. “She has really touched a lot of us.”

The driver of the vehicle could face charges.

The South Carolina Highway Patrol is working to find out what caused the crash. Dickson said people who drive on Mountain Creek Rd. need to really pay attention because the road is curvy and dangerous, especially at night.

“There are no street lights on the corner where you are coming out,” Dickson said. “You just have to look down and at night look for headlights coming up over the hill.”

SCHP trooper Joe Hovis said Jamison could potentially be charged for the accident.

Offset’s Alleged Mistress Summer Bunni Made a Song About Him Called “Don’t Matter”—Listen to It Here

The woman in the middle of the cheating scandal that allegedly led Cardi B to break up with Offset is planning on releasing an emotional song about the Migos rapper.

Summer Bunni, who issued a tearful apology to Cardi for having an affair with her now-estranged husband, told The Blast that she wrote the track—which she titled “Don’t Matter”—over the summer when she was having “mixed feelings” about Offset.

“I just wanted to write about how I felt at the time,” she said, adding that she felt as though her feelings weren’t being considered during her brief fling with the hip-hop star.

Earlier this week, Cardi B announced via Instagram that she and Offset had broken up and were planning to divorce after claiming the pair had been trying to make their relationship work for a “long time.”

Not too long after Cardi’s announcement, text messages went viral appearing to show Offset trying to put together a threesome with Summer Bunni and another woman, rapper Cuban Doll.

Bunni broke down crying in her apology video to Cardi. “I have not spoken to Cardi B, but I would like her to know that I’m a very genuine person, and I’m not here to break up her family or mess up what she has going on with her husband,” she said.

She continued: “I’m very sorry that this has happened, and I’m very sorry that I didn’t think [of] my worth as a young lady, and I just hope that she can overcome this and I know that her and Offset do actually have love for each other. I can tell. I hope with this she can actually just focus on her love for Offset.”

Cuban Doll, for her part, has said that she doesn’t even know Offset. She told TMZ that she had no idea about Offset’s threesome plans allegedly involving her.

“No, I don’t know him. I never even spoke to him. I never had no conversation with him. He wasn’t actually texting me,” she said, adding the whole thing happened because Summer Bunni just wanted attention.

“I’m just got caught in the middle because my name in it. The other girl, she has no name, she don’t do nothing. Summer Bunni. It’s all based off of her trying to get clout. That’s the only thing it is. It’s a bunch of clout-chasing stuff,” Cuban Doll said. Cuban said Cardi recently reached out to her and there’s no bad blood between them.

Meanwhile, Summer Bunni isn’t happy about being labeled as a homewrecker and said she never intended to be the reason behind Offset and Cardi’s breakup. “I really thought he and I were for real,” the 20-year-old musician told The Blast, saying she sincerely hopes the “Bodak Yellow” star can one day accept her apology.

Bunni said she’s never played the song for Offset, but did inform him that it existed.

XXXTentacion’s Son Will Be Named “Gekyume” After a Word He Invented

As you may have probably already heard, XXXTentacion had a son on the way when he was murdered. The slain rapper’s mother, Cleopatra Bernard, revealed months ago that her son’s girlfriend was pregnant at the time of his death when she posted an ultrasound photo on Instagram.

“He left us a final gift,” Bernard captioned the image, which she posted just three days after XXX died. Since then, she has been updating fans on the progress of the baby, and back in August, she announced that the baby was a boy. This week, she revealed her grandson’s name.

“His name is Gekyume,” she wrote on Instagram, along with a baby emoji. According to Cleo’s post, the word means a “different state” or “next” universe of thought.

XXX invented the word and introduced it to the world back in March—just a few months before he died.

Honest to God… I wouldn’t be surprised if X picked out his child’s name himself before he passed away.

Tyler Perry Paid Off $434,000 Worth of Layaways for Walmart Customers in Atlanta for Christmas

Tyler Perry is doing Christmas the right way. The famous actor and filmmaker surprised a number of Walmart shoppers in Atlanta by paying off their layaways for them just weeks before Christmas.

The 49-year-old posted a video on Instagram Thursday (Dec. 6) revealing his holiday surprise for shoppers at two stores in Georgia.

He said anyone who had items on layaway before 9:30 a.m. that morning at stores in East Point and Douglasville would not have to worry about paying off their layaway bill because he had already taken care of it. All they had to do is pay one penny to get their stuff, he said.

“I was trying to do this anonymously but due to some circumstances, y’all know nothing stays secret these days. So I just wanted to go ahead and tell you,” Perry said in the video.

“I have paid for all of your layaways for Christmas. So Merry Christmas to everybody,” he continued, smiling. “You got to go into the Walmart, get your layaway and pay a penny, one penny, and you get your layaway. I know it’s hard times and a lot of people are struggling. I’m just really really grateful to be able to be in a position to do this. So, God bless you. Go get your stuff.”

According to the Associated Press, Perry spent about $434,000 on the generous gesture. TMZ reported that he wrote a $178,000 check for the East Point location and donated $256,000 to customers at the Douglasville location.

Watch Hillary Clinton Straight Up Ignore Donald Trump at Former President George H.W. Bush’s Funeral

Former President George H.W. Bush’s funeral was held in Washington, D.C. Wednesday, and one of the biggest takeaways from the ceremony was the fact that Hillary Clinton refused to acknowledge Donald Trump’s existence.

Bush’s funeral brought together all of the living former presidents—Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Jimmy Carter—as well as our current president, Donald Trump and his wife Melania.

The Trumps were seated in the front row of the Washington National Cathedral right next to the Obamas. As the couple made their way to their seats, Trump shook hands with former president Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama. Melania Trump also shook hands with the Obamas and Bill Clinton and nodded at Hillary Clinton.

But, most noticeably, neither President Trump nor the Clintons appeared to acknowledge one another when the president arrived. Hillary Clinton stared straight ahead when the Trumps arrived, only briefly glancing at Melania, and the president did not even make an attempt to greet his arch nemesis and former 2016 presidential election competitor.

The moment quickly went viral on Twitter:

For what it’s worth, when former president George W. Bush and former first lady Laura Bush arrived at the funeral, the family greeted the Trumps and all of the former presidents and first ladies.

Other notable moments from the ceremony included George W. slipping Michelle Obama candy, just as he did months ago at John McCain’s funeral:

And former vice president Joe Biden either falling asleep or praying really hard:

Wednesday morning, Trump said he was “looking forward to being with the Bush family.”

“This is not a funeral, this is a day of celebration for a great man who has led a long and distinguished life,” Trump tweeted. “He will be missed!”

George H.W. Bush, the nation’s 41st president, died last Friday (Nov. 30) at the age of 84 at his home in Houston, Texas.

Following his funeral service, Bush was flown back to Texas, where he was buried at his presidential library on the campus of Texas A&M University beside his wife, Barbara, and their 3-year-old daughter, Robin.

Cardi B Shares First Photo of Daughter Kulture Kiari After Announcing Breakup With Offset

It’s been nearly five months since Cardi B and Offset welcomed their daughter Kulture into the world, and we’ve all been eagerly anticipating a photo of the little one. Well, the wait is officially over.

The same day she announced her breakup with Offset, Cardi shared a photo of baby Kulture, and to say that she’s adorable would be a huge understatement.

In the photo posted to Cardi’s Instagram, four-month-old Kulture can be seen sitting in her car seat wearing a pink headband with a white bow and pink, grey and white striped bib with her name written on it. Cardi captured the photo “My heart.”

The internet was all the way here for the adorable photo too, because it has since received nearly 9 million likes.

Cardi previously said that she was afraid of sharing pictures of Kulture online because “there are so many people out there.” Those feelings were conflicting, however, because “sometimes I do want to show people how beautiful and how precious she is,” Cardi said. “She’s so precious…There’s a lot of people that have crazy minds, you know. I want to protect her! She’s my little buggy.”

Kulture Kiari Cephus was born on July 10th and is Cardi’s first child. Baby Kulture has three siblings through her dad Offset, whose real name is Kiari Kendrell Cephus.

Late Tuesday (Dec. 4), Cardi (real name: Belcalis Almánzar) announced via Instagram that she and Offset were no longer in a relationship and planning to divorce after just a little over a year of marriage. (FYI: The couple celebrated their 1-year wedding anniversary back in September.)

Instagram Photo

In her Instagram video announcing her split with Offset, Cardi B said that the breakup was “nobody’s fault” and she Offset simply “grew out of love.”

Other than a comment he wrote on Cardi’s post saying “Y’all won,” Offset has yet to respond publicly to the split. The Migos rapper is gearing up for the release of his debut solo album next Friday (Dec. 14).

Beyoncé & JAY-Z Headline 2018 Global Citizen Festival in South Africa to Honor Nelson Mandela’s Legacy (VIDEO + PHOTOS)

If you’ve never seen a crowd in South Africa go apesh*t, look no further than Beyoncé and JAY-Z’s headlining performance at the 2018 Global Citizen Festival.

This past Sunday (Dec. 2), at approximately 2:45 p.m. EST (9:45 p.m. SAST), the Carters took to the stage for their last concert of the year. After literally killing stadiums all over North America and Europe for their “OTR II” tour, Bey and Jay took their talents to Johannesburg to pay homage to the late great Nelson Mandela in honor of what have been his 100th year alive.

Hip-Hop’s royal couple thrilled nearly 100,000 fans following a packed day of performances from American artists such as Usher, Pharrell, Ed Sheeran, as well as local talent like Wizkid, Tiwa Savage, D’banj, Cassper and many others.

Though we only got to see a small portion of their concert (about 30 minutes) because organizers wanted to give the ticketed audience an exclusive experience, concertgoers blessed us with various snippets of the show via social media.

Beyoncé and JAY-Z even invited Pharrell onstage with them to perform “Nice” (which we, unfortunately, weren’t able to see in real-time) and later, Bey was joined by Ed Sheeran for their first ever live performance of “Perfect” (which was later included in the broadcast).
