Paris Jackson Mistaken for Homeless Person While Waiting on Film Set

One of the richest celebrity kids probably ever was just confused for a homeless person.

Paris Jackson, daughter of the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson, was waiting on the set of her upcoming Amazon Studios movie when someone on the production staff assumed she was homeless and attempted to shoo her away.

Paris arrived on set early and was patiently waiting outside the make-up trailer. The 19-year-old also pondered why her early-morning boho chic style would lead anyone to believe she was homeless.

The model/actress is making her film debut in an untitled Amazon Studios crime drama directed by Nash Edgerton. Paris reportedly plays an “edgy 20-year-old.” The film also stars Academy Award winner Charlize Theron and Oscar nominee David Oyelowo.

Paris has definitely been stepping out of her father’s shadow as of late. She has made several public/red carpet and awards show appearances. And she recently had guest spot in Lee Daniels’ Star.

“Growing Up Hip Hop Atlanta”: Meet the Cast, Including Bow Wow, Reginae Carter, Zonnique Pullins & More

Hotlanta is about to get hotter now that the younger generation of Atlanta’s hottest music moguls are telling their stories via the new WeTV series “Growing Up Hip Hop Atlanta.”

GUHHATL chronicles the lives of six young musicians whose families found fame and fortune in the Hip Hop industry striving to succeed independently in their own careers. Atlanta is considered the “new Mecca for Hip Hop,” and the series will explore what life is like for a tight-knit crew of friends who all know each other through their famous parents.

From WeTV:

The rich history of the Atlanta hip hop scene has fostered a unique sense of pride and closeness among the artists that resembles a family. But like any family, Atlanta’s next generation of hip hop stars do not always get along. Growing up together in the shadow of their legendary parents has established tight bonds and bitter rivalries, as everybody fights for their chance to push their way into the spotlight.

The premiere episode of the reality show — a spin-off of the WeTV series “Growing Up Hip Hop,” which is based out of New York and Los Angeles — debuts Thursday night (May 25) at 10 pm EST.

The well-connected Atlanta crew features rapper Bow Wow (aka Shad Moss), Shaniah Mauldin (daughter of Jermaine Dupri), Reginae Carter (daughter of Lil Wayne), Ayana Fite (daughter of DJ Hurricane of Beastie Boys fame), Brandon Barnes (son of famed hip hop manager Debra Antney and brother of rap star Waka Flocka Flame) and Zonnique Pullins (daughter of hip hop power couple T.I. and Tiny).

Get to know the cast of “Growing Up Hip Hop Atlanta” below:

Bow Wow aka Shad Moss

Shad Moss, better known as Bow Wow (formerly Lil Bow Wow), has been rapping since he was 6 years old.

After being discovered by Snoop Dogg in 1993 while performing at a concert in Los Angeles, he was introduced to Jermaine Dupri a few years later, and the rest is history. In 2000, at the age of 13, he released his debut album Beware of Dog.

In addition to rapping, Bow Wow, now 30 years old, also made a name for himself as an actor, starring in major blockbuster films such as Like Mike, Johnson Family Vacation, Roll Bounce, Lottery Ticket, Madea’s Big Happy Family (as Byraaaaaaaaan!!!) and more.

Though he was born in Columbus, Ohio, Bow Wow has always considered Atlanta his hometown. And he’s returning to the city to release his first album in nearly 10 years, which he intends to make his “swan song” before bowing out of the industry so that he can direct his focus to raising his child and dealing with other personal issues.

“I’ve been doing this [music] for over 20 years, and that’s 20 years of me doing that one thing,” Bow Wow told Hollywood Life. “Throughout the journey of my career, I fell in love with a lot of things [but] music just happened to open up the floodgates for the movies, the hosting and everything else. I feel like I’ve done everything I could as a rapper, so then you start looking for a new challenge; and, acting did that for me. I can’t do the same thing forever. It’s about growth. You can’t be one dimensional.”

Bow Wow is also the executive producer of “Growing Up Hip Hop Atlanta.”

Adrienne Bailon Publicly Apologizes to Naturi Naughton for Mistreating Her During 3LW Days

Two of the three “little women” of 3LW reconnected as grown women and nobody left with mashed potatoes or macaroni & cheese in their hair. The moment was actually incredibly sweet and the two were able to make amends.

On Thursday’s (May 25) episode of The Real, Naturi Naughton stopped by her former bandmate’s talk show and Adrienne Bailon publicly apologized for the turmoil the now-actress endured while they were part of the popular 2000s girl group as teenagers.

“There was a lot that went on in that time that looking back was just like, we were so young and it was crazy, and that I genuinely from the bottom of my heart never meant any harm to you, and I think you’re talented and you’re beautiful.”

Looking a little cautious, Naughton accepted Bailon’s apology. The pregnant Power star explained that she had a “hard time” in 3LW, but says now, as adult women, it’s important to support one another.

“It was crazy ‘cause when you know, going through what I went through with the group, it wasn’t easy, it was a hard time. And everything with being a teenager and being criticized — I went through a time, where I didn’t really think I could make it. And I appreciate your apology because it’s just humility. And at it the end of the day, we have to love and support each other.”

Bailon also told the audience that the two actually made amends privately a few years ago at a Us Weekly party. However, Bailon was using her talk show platform to publicly express her sincere apologies.

Bailon and Naughton’s strained relationship is traced all the way back to 2002. Naughton has stated in previous interviews that she was treated badly by Bailon and Kiely Williams, the third member of 3LW and the two actively worked to push her out the group.

Tensions came to a head during an argument between Naughton and the group’s manager, Michelle Williams, who was also Kiely’s mother. Kiely and Bailon joined in by “cursing out” Naughton and Kiely eventually threw a plate of food onto Naughton, which allegedly consisted of mashed potatoes and macaroni.

Naughton officially left the group after the incident.

It’s no secret that I don’t see it for Adrienne Bailon. (Unless she apologizes to Taina). However, I do think her apology to Naughton is sincere and it’s great to see that the two can make amends after all these years and can fully support each other personally and professionally.

Vine Star Jay Versace Dragged on Twitter for Outing Princeton Perez from Mindless Behavior As Gay

The usually hilarious Jay Versace has no one laughing right now. In fact, most of Twitter is pissed at the Vine star. Versace has found himself in hot water after outing Mindless Behavior member Princeton Perez as gay.

Versace and Perez have privately been dealing with their own social media beef recently. Despite Versace blocking the singer, he claims Perez has been using a private account and the two have been going back and forth through DMs.

Tired of the mess, Versace eventually retaliated by publicly posting screenshots of their conversations. However, one the messages seemingly outs Perez as gay. Versace writes:

“You’re a low down sh—y quality ass human that is full of himself. No wonder you can’t come out. You’re scared of who you really are.”

Perez has never publicly discussed his sexuality, but responded to Versace’s comment by writing:

“Rumors will be rumors and I’m not in a closet. I don’t need to be. I’m being myself. I don’t have to broadcast anything.”

Here are the screenshots of their conversation Versace posted:

Versace’s spiteful action caused him to become a top 10 trending topic on Twitter. Most defended Perez and dragged Versace for publicly outing someone.

Versace suspended his Twitter accounts after being dragged for outing Perez. However, he did offer an apology on Snapchat. He noted that outing someone is not OK and admitted he posted the screenshots out of anger.

“For months now [Princeton] has been dming on private twitter accounts harassing me and all of my friends about the people I talk to and just being a plain creep. I’ve warned him numerous times that if he didn’t leave me alone I was going to show the screenshots to the world and let them see for themselves. But yet he still continued to bother me and DM me from accounts.

I got tired. So I posted that. That was clearly not the right way to go about it but I was so upset I didn’t think about the precautions before I made those actions. But what I can say is that my intent was not to “out” him. It was to show that he’s a bully and a stalker and also it was done out of temporary anger.

I apologize to prince10 and you guys for taking it way too far. I know how hard it is to come out of the closet and I’ve been there. But also he clearly stated that he wasn’t in a closet to begin with. He never said he was straight or gay.”

Versace opened up about his own sexuality on Snapchat back in September. Not giving himself a label, the social media star revealed he is not attracted to a specific gender.

“I love people in general idgaf what gender you are .. There it is .. Hate me for it.. Idgaf.. Love me for it.. Love you more.”

Publicly outing someone’s sexuality is never OK and anyone in the LGBTQ community especially knows this. While Perez was clearly taunting Versace, the Vine’s stars reaction was completely out of line. Hopefully, he learns from this mistake.

Tommie Says She Won’t Be on Next Season of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta

The resident drunk, rowdy, ratchet chick on Love & Hip Hop Atlanta is about to throw up the deuces to her gig with Mona Scott-Young, according to a recent rant on Instagram Live.

Tommie Lee — who made her debut as the girlfriend of Scrapp, a wannabe rapper who’s the son of criminal mastermind Karen “KK” King — has been on the last three seasons of LHHATL. Since her introduction on the series, Tommie has been an obnoxious, aggressive, quarrelsome, belligerent drunk.

She has scrapped repeatedly with Joseline Hernandez and most recently, she’s carried her combative character to her mother, as the two fought heartedly at the beginning of the sixth season after Tommie came home from jail.

Recently, Tommie took to her Instagram Live to rant and ramble, and among the many insights she revealed, she stated that this season of LHHATL would be her last and that she wouldn’t be returning next season.

Tommie: I came to the conclusion where, I really slick don’t wanna do this sh*t no more. So, you know, to everybody that’s been watching me, everybody that love the kid and all that. I will not be continuing on to the next season. I’m sorry, baby. I will not be doing this sh*t no more.

To Tommie’s credit, the reason for her pulling out of the show is because of the deteriorated relationship with her mother, which she attributes to her being on the show. Which is understandable, but real talk, Tommie’s departure from the show will hardly be a blip on the radar. Despite how much she fought with Joseline, she never commanded the attention and fanfare that the Puerto Rican Princess did so her absence is unlikely to be that deeply felt.

As it is, it feels like they’re squeezing Tommie into this season when she doesn’t even really fit in with the rest of the cast.

Interestingly, even though Tommie says she doesn’t need the LHHATL platform to make it, she later posted two flyers promoting her Memorial Day Weekend club appearances which touted her LHHATL stardom.

Maybe she’s giving herself a few months (or years) to wean herself off of Mona’s teet?

WATCH: T.I. & Tiny Accuse Each Other of Cheating in ‘Family Hustle’ Series Finale

The final season of the once family-positive reality show, T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle, is definitely coming to an end on a sad and ugly note. A clip of the upcoming series finale show T.I and Tiny Harris accusing each other of infidelity.

The estranged couple are seated at a dinner table in a restaurant when Tip suggests their marital issues were exacerbated when she started living in another home. “Because you started cheating,” Tiny responded.

In a confessional, Tiny explained that her husband cheated on her with one of her employees.

“For those who don’t understand, Tip had some infidelities with a girl that I hired and that girl is one of the reasons why I got my own house.”

Not wanting to own up to his own indiscretions, T.I. attempted to turn the tables. The conversation got especially tense when he brought up Tiny hanging around a dude T.I. was “at odds with.”

“You done had yo’ sh*t where you was out with this motherf*ckin’ dude you know I don’t f**k with… You was at his house. You was in his house … The point is that you was with a dude that you know I’m at odds with.”

Though no names were mentioned, he was clearly referring to Floyd Mayweather. The two men have a years-long beef against each other, but video footage last year showed Tiny and the boxer dancing very closely together.

Tiny denied that anything was going on between the two. “I’ve done plenty for you, I ain’t done sh*t for him,” she said. However, she did let it slip that the boxer “treats me like a woman.”

The clip ends with Tiny defiantly stating, “I’ve never cheated on you! Ever!” which is something something T.I. definitely can’t say for himself.

The tense dinner scene and T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle finale airs Tuesday, May 29th on VH1.

Leslie Jones Announced As Host of 2017 BET Awards

Leslie Jones’ career continues its upward journey. The SNL and Ghostbusters star is ready to step on the big stage by her lonesome and has landed her first awards show hosting gig. Jones will host the 2017 BET Awards.

The announcement was made on Wednesday (May 24). The comedian tells People she’s turning the awards show into a barbecue that everyone’s invited to and can gave a good time at.

“So, my goal for this show is to have a big ‘ol nice barbecue, family reunion feel. I just want everyone cracking up. I want everyone leaving that event going, ‘Wait, did they even give awards out? I was too busy laughing.’”

Though Jones was seemingly inspired by the Broadway hit Hamilton and hilariously auditioned to portray Donald Trump on SNL, don’t expect her to talk politics during her first stint as an awards show host.

“I am tired of everybody being sad and angry. I want people to just downright laugh. You can’t do the event without touching on certain things, but I’m trying to make it all funny. It’s really just about pulling the elephants out of the room and, actually, I’ll make the elephant in the room laugh about it.”

The 49-year-old is excited and humbled by the opportunity. BET was actually the first place she did stand-up on TV, and she says serving as the host of BET Awards is a “full-circle moment” for her.

“I went out in the world and did what I needed to do and now I can come home to my people and say, ‘Yo! Look what I did!’”

The 2017 BET Awards will air live on June 25. Beyoncé leads the night with seven nominations. But let’s not expect the very pregnant mother of twins to make a surprise appearance like last year.

Mom Sues “America’s Got Talent” Claiming Tyra Banks Humiliated Her Daughter in Front of Cameras

She’s only just a few months into her new job, and Tyra Banks is already off to a rocky start. In a lawsuit, a woman claims the supermodel “physically manipulated and verbally abused” her minor-aged daughter during filming of America’s Got Talent.

The woman — identified as Jane Doe — filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday (May 22) against an AGT producer and Marathon Productions. Jane says her daughter — identified as Mary Doe — was left “traumatized” offstage while her parents were “publicly humiliated” onstage during their filmed audition in March.

The lawsuit states:

[Tyra Banks], an individual acting as an agent of Defendants, physically manipulated and verbally abused Mary. Banks shook Mary’s shoulder, pulled Mary’s hair back and physically manipulated Mary…

Mary did not stop Banks’ conduct because Mary was fearful. Banks also insinuated that Mary was accidentally conceived, made fun of the performance and ridiculed [the song] in front of Mary, all in front of active cameras that were filming Mary.

After the performance, Banks asked Mary to describe, in front of active and filming cameras, her opinion about Jane and her husband after they were publicly ridiculed by AGT. … As a result of her negative experience from AGT and Defendants’ abusive treatment, Mary was traumatized and became deeply depressed.

Jane and her husband, John Doe, performed a song about motherhood and the birth of their daughter, Mary. Jane says their performance was ridiculed by the judges and Banks.

The parents asked producers not to use any footage of Mary or their audition. Producers agreed not show the minor-aged girl, but will air Jane and John’s audition, just not in its entirety.

The parents’ claim alleges intentional, as well as negligent, infliction of emotional distress, civil battery, and civil assault. They are seeking an unspecified amount of damages.

Banks, Marathon, and NBC have yet to comment on the lawsuit.

Karrueche Tran Denied Permanent Restraining Order Against Chris Brown

Karrueche Tran faced a minor setback in her quest to obtain a permanent restraining order against ex Chris Brown. A Los Angeles judged denied the request … for now.

Tran was scheduled to appear in court Tuesday (May 23) to tell the judge, in her own words, the physical abuse she says she endured during her three-year relationship with Chris and his recent alleged violent behavior. However, the 29-year-old was a no-show.

Tran intended to speak to the judge via phone. However, the judge informed Tran’s lawyer that she needed to appear in court in-person or give a 12-day notice that she wanted to testify via phone, which was not done. The judge ruled against a permanent restraining order.

All is not los though; a new hearing was scheduled for June 15, and Tran intends to appear in person. “She’ll be here,” her lawyer said. “She wants to get this finished. None of these delays have been her fault.”

The 29-year-old actress was unable attend the Los Angeles hearing because she is currently in New Orleans filming her upcoming TV show, Claws.

Chris was also a no-show, but his lawyer attended the hearing on his behalf. Despite Tran’s setback, there was no victory for Chris. His lawyer argued the singer was never properly served legal documents of the temporary restraining order.

However, a video was shown to the judge showing Chris being served the papers during his 28th birthday celebration at a Houston nightclub. The judge noted the video was “effective.”

Back in February, Tran was granted a temporary restraining order against Chris after he allegedly threatened to kill her. She also revealed he previously punched her in the stomach and pushed her down stairs during their relationship.
