Ray J & Princess Love Living Separately Following Vegas Debacle, But Divorce is NOT Being Discussed

Ray J and Princess Love are doing what is best for their family and their marriage. And right now, that means living apart.

A source tells TMZ that Ray and Princess have been living separately since Princess publicly accused Ray of leaving her and their 1-year-old daughter “stranded” in Las Vegas back in November.

Princess was also eight months pregnant with the couple’s second child at the time. She gave birth to their son, Epik, in December.

TMZ reports that Princess is currently living in a luxury Beverly Hills condo with the kids, while Ray is staying in a nearby bachelor pad with the family’s dogs (Ed. Note: Which means he’s literally living in the dog house.)

But here’s the thing: the new living arrangement is helping their relationship.

Via TMZ:

We’re told they’re getting along fine now … doing family stuff together with no drama or arguing. This includes over the holidays…

As for the potential threat of divorce … our sources say there’s zero talk of that currently, and they’re using the time apart to focus on themselves and being good parents. Princess, we’re told, is very happy with the current set up.

The couple even spent Valentine’s Day together. Ray covered his apartment in 2,000 roses for Princess and Melody.

Princess also celebrated the romantic day by sharing a photo of her red dress. “Special girl. Real good girl,” she wrote, which Ray responded to with a devil emoji.

Milwaukee Molson Coors Shooter Regularly Carried Guns With Him & Spouted Conspiracy Theories

The city of Milwaukee was shocked by a tragic shooting that took place Wednesday (Feb. 27) at the Molson Coors brewery.

Five workers were killed before the shooter took his own life, and now details are emerging on the killer and his possible motivations.

The gunman, identified as 51-year-old Anthony Ferrill, had been an employee at that Molson Coors campus for 17 years, working as an electrician.

During his tenure with the company that owns popular beer brands such as Coors Light, Miller Lite, and Blue Moon, Ferrill claimed that he was a victim of racial discrimination and had regular disputes with at least one of his co-workers.

A different co-worker speaking to the media countered the racism claims, however, saying that Ferrill regularly watched movies on his phone while on the clock, which was the real source of the feuds with his fellow electrician.

According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the arguments between the two got so intense they accused each other of stealing tools and tampering with computer equipment in their respective offices. Ferrill even believed that his home computer was bugged by his co-workers.

It’s not clear what sparked the shooting that put over 1,000 workers at risk, but police officers responded to the scene and spent hours clearing out the more than 20 buildings in the complex.

The news came as a shock to many who knew Ferrill.

One co-worker, Keith Giese, told reporters that Ferrill seemed fine just a week ago, saying: “I never had a clue. I talked to him a couple of days ago and he seemed fine to me. I had no idea that there was a problem, that somebody could snap like that.”

Neighbors also expressed their confusion, including 82-year-old Erna Roenspies (pictured above).

“He was like a son to me,” she said as she spoke to the media. “I don’t know what triggered this. Let’s pray for everyone.”

For others, the news, while sad, was not a complete shock.

Following claims by Ferrill that people were breaking into his home, one co-worked joked that they should put an “aluminum hat” on him, and neighbors said that he was known to regularly carry guns on him.

Ferrill is survived by his wife and daughter, and a vigil for the victims is being held at a local church a few miles away from the campus where the shooting took place.

Bullied 9-Year-Old Quaden Bayles Turns Down Disneyland Trip, Will Donate Nearly $500K to Charity Instead

Last week, a heartbreaking video that showed a young Australian boy who lives with dwarfism crying after being bullied went viral across the globe.

In the original video, which has since been taken down, Quaden Bayles is seen crying and telling his mother to “give me a knife, I want to kill myself.”

His mother, Yarraka, can be heard delivering a message to parents, teachers, and educators:

“This is what bullying does. So can you please educate your children, your family, your friends, because all it takes is for one more instance, and you wonder why kids are killing themselves.”

As the video made its way around social media, Quaden quickly started receiving outpourings of support.

Actor Hugh Jackman sent him a personal video, he led an Australian rugby team onto the field at CBUS Stadium, and American Comedian Brad Williams, who also has dwarfism, set up a GoFundMe campaign with the goal of sending Quaden and his family to Disneyland.

With so much global support, that campaign did much more than raise enough money for the trip.

With donors from numerous countries, Williams was able to raise almost $500,000 for the Bayles family. However, they have decided not to use the money to take their son on a trip.

Instead, they’ll use that money to support a number of local organizations and charities.

Quaden’s aunt, Mundanara Bayles, told NITV: “This little fellow has been bullied. How many suicides, black or white, in our society have happened due to bullying?”

She went on to say: “We want the money to go to community organizations that really need it. As much as we want to go to Disneyland, I think our community would far off benefit from that.”

The family would like to give the money to two charities in particular: Dwarfism Awareness Australia and the Balunu Healing Foundation.

However, since GoFundMe’s terms state that all donated funds must be used “solely for the purpose you have stated on and in connection with your campaign,” the Bayles family is currently working with Williams to find a way to get this money to these charities.

Lena Waithe on Accusations She Stole Concept of New Show: “I Would Never Steal Another Artist’s Work”

Lena Waithe is finally addressing an accusation that she stole the idea of her upcoming show from a rising screenwriter.

“I have never seen Nina Lee’s work nor would I ever steal another artist’s work,” Waithe stated emphatically in a statement she released on Wednesday (Feb. 26).

In a series of tweets (with compelling support), up and coming screenwriter, Nina Lee claimed that Waithe’s new show Girls Room is actually a rip-off of her shelved 2017 project, The Girls Room.

Lee found much support from Twitter, prompting Waithe to eventually respond to the heavy backlash she was receiving and address Lee’s claim.

Waithe says that she had no prior knowledge of Lee’s work when partnering with Dove in 2019 and joining their project which the company started working on in 2017.

She claims Dove already had a title and concept, and only brought her onboard to write scripts and help produce the show.

“As a fellow creative myself, I can only imagine how [Lee] must be feeling and I look to #Dove to give us more clarity on the situation,” Waithe wrote.

Following a personal phone call with Waithe and the Girls Room director, Lee also gave an update on the situation via Twitter on Thursday (Feb. 27).

“I spoke to Lena Waithe this morning and she and the director both assured me they would never steal, copy, or mimic another Black woman’s work. They also told me about supportive they are of Black women in film,” she wrote.

However, Lee was sure to highlight the crux of the entire issue.

“Black artists have historically struggled with having our work taken from us against our will and without permission. Therefore, I am not surprised to see what feels like a commodified version of my art being co-opted by a major corporation.”

As for Dove, the company released a statement defending the originality of their show despite striking similarities between their show and Lee’s project that include title, concept, and even aesthetic.

“Dove started working on Girls Room with our partners in early 2017, and we’re proud to have teamed up with ATTN: and Lena Waithe to bring the vision to life. The name of the series was developed before Lena or ATTN: were added to the project and was selected because our scenes mainly take place in the ‘Girls Room,’ any similarity to other creative projects is entirely unintentional.”

Dove/Waithe’s Girls Room is expected to be released later this year.

Love & Hip-Hop’s Sierra Gates Facing Up to 5 Years in Prison for Allegedly Assaulting Pregnant Woman

A 2017 incident with a pregnant woman may lead Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta‘s Sierra Gates to jail.

According to court documents obtained by Bossip, Sierra has been charged with two counts of battery and one count of battery against a pregnant woman.

The documents do not name the alleged victim, nor do they state how or if she or the unborn baby was harmed. However, the incident is described as a crime of “high and aggravated nature.”

If convicted, Sierra could face up to 5 years in prison from the battery charge alone.

The incident occurred in 2017, but Sierra wasn’t charged until the summer of 2019.

She was scheduled for a final plea hearing in December 2019. However, it was canceled after her lawyer, Adamma McKimmon, argued that the state had not turned over evidence so that she could build a defense for her client.

Sierra may have alluded to the case in a recent 30-second teaser for the upcoming season of LHHATL.

“I might be going to jail,” Sierra cries.

Love & Hip-Hop cameras had requested to film the court proceedings, but the shoot was canceled when the hearing did not take place

We last reported on Sierra and lawyer McKimmon just last month after Sierra’s daughter was attacked by a student and her mom in her high school’s bathroom. McKimmon is advising her client in that case as well.

Sierra’s daughter has now been enrolled in a private school.

Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta returns on Monday, March 16th on VH1.

“Little Women: Atlanta” Cast Throw Hands & Drinks in Bar Brawl During Ms. Juicy’s Launch Party (VIDEO)

After Little Women: Atlanta completed its lackluster fifth season last summer, it was unknown if the show would even return. But we now have video proof that these little women are still bringing big drama.

TMZ has released a video of several members of the cast in a bar brawl, complete with hands and drinks being thrown.

According to sources, Ms. Juicy held a launch party for her new eyewear line at Nouveau Bar & Grill when chaos broke out between a few of the other women.

Twins Amanda and Andrea Salinas got into an argument with Abira, and things got physical after Abira threw a drink at them. Punches were thrown and Ms. Juicy even got caught in the middle of the melee.

Security as well as the Salinas’ twins’ respective (average size) significant others had to intervene in an attempt to calm the situation.

TMZ does not report what caused the bar brawl, but viewers can recall that The Twins and Abira have had a turbulent relationship since Abira joined the show a few seasons ago.

Little Women: Atlanta has become one of the more popular incarnations of the Little Women franchise.

However, the most recent season received criticism after producers revamped the show and shifted its focus from messy life drama to documenting the supposed rap/music management aspirations several of the cast members were trying to fulfill, à la Love & Hip-Hop.

The revamp resulted in a contrived and underwhelming season, leaving many to wonder if the reality series had reached its end.

There still hasn’t been any info released regarding a new season. But cameras were on site to capture the group’s latest event (and fight), which means new content is at least being shot.

Fifth Grade Student Airlifted to Hospital & Receives 6 Stiches After Teacher Physical Assaults Him Over Juice Box

An 11-year-old elementary student had to be airlifted to a hospital and received six stitches following an incident with a teacher.

Last week, Kamauri Williamson, a fifth-grader at Post Elementary School in Houston, Texas, was left waiting at school with a large gash just above his eyebrow until his mother arrived.

Kiana Randolph rushed to the school after receiving a phone call saying that her son had been injured. But she was shocked to find her son with a wound so serious that he was airlifted to a nearby hospital and treated with multiple stitches.

Randolph was even more shocked when she saw footage of the incident that caused the large wound Williamson suffered.

According to surveillance footage, Williamson was injured after a teacher confronted him about a juice box during lunch.

The footage shows the male teacher grabbing the 11-year-old by the hood of his sweatshirt and slamming his head against a counter.

“You see him at one point, my son’s feet lift up off the ground and he is basically being choked,” Randolph told ABC affiliate, KTRK.

“They’re supposed to be in a safe place while you’re at work, and to get this type of reaction of a head being busted open, especially over a juice box,” she continued.

“Nobody deserves this, especially my son. I would never had thought that would have happened to my kid.”

The teacher involved in the incident has been placed on administrative leave and the school district has launched an investigation into the matter. He has not been named, nor charged with a crime.

Randolph strongly feels more consequences are needed than administrative leave.

“[That teacher] needs to not be able to work with children again. Just, not at all,” she said.

“That was just very, very upsetting to watch as a mother. It is very hurtful. No one’s child should be treated like that in any manner.”

Randolph has obtained legal counsel the family’s lawyer is hoping for the teacher to be prosecuted for his actions.

“I have a lot of trust in the justice system, so I hope this guy is going to be prosecuted for doing something he shouldn’t have,” said Adam Ramji, the family’s attorney.

“More so, other teachers need to be aware that if you’re around children, there are certain ways to manage it and definitely certain ways not to manage it.”

Williamson has returned to school while the teacher remains on leave.

Lena Waithe Accused of Stealing TV Show Concept from Rising Screenwriter

The trailer to Lena Waithe’s new show, Girls Room, was just released. But a rising filmmaker was more than shocked when she watched it and Waithe is now facing accusations that she stole the project.

According to Deadline, Waithe’s Girls Room is an anthology series that “will explore the pain and power of female adolescence as told through the eyes of an inter-connected group of girls.”

The project was greenlit in May 2019 through the Emmy winner’s production company. It’s one of the first scripted projects for media company ATTN: and it’s also partnering with Dove’s self-esteem campaign for young girls.

While the show sounds well-intentioned and poised to make a positive impact, it’s now being surrounded by controversy after screenwriter Nina Lee accused Waithe of stealing her idea.

After viewing the trailer, Lee was not impressed and believes Waithe’s show is a rip-off of her 2017 project, The Girls Room.

“This looks awful,” she tweeted.

In a follow-up tweet, Lee included the poster art for her project The Girls Room which looks very similar to Waithe’s show.

“Even the way her show is colored is oddly similar, I have to laugh,” she added in another tweet.

Lee eventually explains that her 2017 project was shelved after losing most of their footage on the last day of shooting. She tried to crowdfund and hoped others within the industry would offer help, but the efforts were unsuccessful.

Many on Twitter sympathized with Lee and dragged Waithe for stealing another black woman’s art.

Some even criticized her for naming the Girls Room characters after the Little Rock Nine, the group of black teenagers who integrated Little Rock Central High School in 1957.

Waithe has not responded to Lee’s accusations.

Lee has received much support and even job opportunities since sharing her story on Twitter.

High School Basketball Announcer Under Fire After Describing Black Players’ Names as “Disgusting”

A veteran high school sports announcer is Oklahoma is facing backlash after making a racist comment while introducing players of a basketball team.

The Crooked Oak High School girls’ basketball team was shocked as they took the court for their game against Newkirk High School on Friday (Feb. 21) due to the announcer’s insensitive comment about some of the black players’ names.

“The Crooked Oak Lady Ruff Necks, now their names are pretty disgusting.

He was replaced during the game’s halftime break.

The comment, which many perceived as racist, was caught on video and shared on Facebook where it went viral.

A few of the Crooked Oak players and parents shared their reactions to the incident with local news station KFOR.

“We all looked at each other like, did he just say, is that real? Like did he really just say that?” Iyana Freeman said.

“I was just trying to make sure my teammates were okay. Because I knew, I could tell they were affected by how that was said,” Freeman continued.

KFOR reports that several members were unable to really process what had just at the time, while others were left feeling uncomfortable and unsafe.

“I was actually kind of scared on the court. I was like watching every move that I did,” revealed Jaiana Wiggins.

A friend of the announcer wrote in an email to KFOR that the announcer had intended to say “difficult,” instead of “disgusting,” stating that their friend simply “mixed up his words.

However, in a statement by the superintendent for Newkirk Public schools, the announcer is described as the “district’s long-time announcer” who has “around 20 years” of experience announcing Newkirk games.

It’s a safe bet the veteran announcer has pronounced his share of “difficult” names throughout the years.

With that in mind, Crooked Oak parent Tremekkia White is not buying the “mixed up his words” excuse.

“He never paused. He never said, ‘Oh, I’m sorry, I meant difficult, my apologies ladies,’” she said.

The statement by the Newkirk School’s superintendent reads in part:

To the Newkirk and Crooked Oak communities at large, I would like to say that this unfortunate comment does not represent the Newkirk Public Schools or its beliefs. We sincerely apologize for any pain or affront our announcer’s comment has caused Crooked Oak players, parents, patrons, and school employees.

Tremekkia White, however, doesn’t think the explanation and apology wasn’t enough.

“The girls should have been given a public apology, the same way they were demeaned publicly,” she said.

Another Crooked Oak parent, Lorna Pollard agreed, because the basketball team was never given an update of the situation during Friday’s game.

“They never relayed that to the girls. The girls didn’t hear anything from the school system on either side,” she said.

The name of the announcer has not been revealed, nor have any disciplinary actions been reported.

Boosie Tells Son’s Friend He’s Going to Teach Him How to Eat P***y Because His Lips Are “Nice & Fluffy” (VIDEO)

Just last week, Boosie was admonishing Dwyane Wade for accepting his own child’s gender identity, and now, he’s making some highly questionable comments about his son’s friend’s facial features, saying that his lips are perfect for performing oral sex on a woman because they are “nice and fluffy.”

During a recent Instagram Live session, Boosie can be heard telling his teenage son, off-camera: “I’m gonna teach your friend how to eat p***y. You gotta give him about eight more months, mayne. I’ma teach him. About nine more months, mayne. Wait ’til he get in the 11th grade or something, dawg. For real, mayne. He don’t need to be munching yet, mayne. For real … that boy got a nice set of lips on his sh*t too.”

Boosie then turned to his son’s friend, who could not also be seen on camera: “Boy you gotta nice pair on you, boy!” in a tone reminiscent of a white slave master talking to a black mandingo.

He added: “Them bitches curl up and everythang! You got a nice pair of lips for a teenager! Them bitches nice! Them bitches nice and fluffy! All you gotta do is put them bitches on the p***y!”

As you can imagine, the Twitter responses are exactly what they should be. Disgust, shock, outrage, etc. with some reminding folks that this isn’t the first time Boosie (or “Bussy,” his new Twitter nickname) has proudly displayed homosexual tendencies.

Remember that time he said this time last year, in regards to the Jussie Smollett debacle: “d**k make you do some crazy shit?”

Then there was that one time he told that vivid story of walking in on two men having sex while he was in prison.

So, in this instance, his infatuation with a young male’s lips should definitely be questioned, but he’s Boosie and is apparently uncheckable on a much grander scale (besides Planet Fitness of course).

Anyhow … peep the Twitter responses below:
