Mom Pays for Daughter’s Wedding, Goes on Honeymoon With Her & Gives Birth to Baby With Son-in-Law 9 Months Later

A UK woman whose husband left her to be with her mother says she will NEVER fully forgive her mom for not only taking her husband from her, but also getting pregnant by him and having his baby just nine months after their honeymoon, and on top of that, marrying him the day after what would have been their 1-year wedding anniversary.

Lauren Wall, of Twickenham in southwest London, who is now 34 years old, got married to airport worker Paul White back in 2004 when she was 19 and had just given birth to their child, a baby girl.

Lauren’s mom, Julie, now 53 years old, footed the entire bill for the wedding (about $20K USD to be exact), so to express her gratitude for what seemed like an extremely generous gesture at the time, Lauren invited Mama Julie to tag along with her and her new husband for their two-week honeymoon.

To Lauren, it seemed like a good idea at the time, however, just eight weeks later, Paul moved out of the home he shared with Lauren. And nine months after that, Lauren’s mother gave birth to Paul’s child and announced that they were officially a couple.

“Paul always got on really well with mum,” Lauren told the UK’s Mirror Online in an exclusive interview. “I never thought it strange though, as she was his mum-in-law and he was just being friendly.”

Lauren went on: “They’d laugh a lot together. I didn’t think to be worried at all. Who would? I couldn’t wait to settle into marriage but the ink was barely dry on our certificate when Paul changed.”

Lauren said after their honeymoon, her new husband became oddly “protective” of his cell phone. And just four weeks after their wedding, when Lauren’s sister was using their mom’s phone, she came across some inappropriate texts between Mama Julie and Paul.

When Lauren finally mustered up the courage confronted Mama Julie about the texts, Mama Julie tried to downplay them, telling her daughter there wasn’t anything going on between her and her son-in-law.

“Mum denied everything, saying, ‘You’re crazy!’” Lauren recalled. “When I confronted Paul he went white as a sheet—and refused to let me see his phone.”

Days later, Paul took off his wedding ring and walked out on his new wife and their seven-month-old daughter so that he could be with his mother-in-law, who, unbeknownst to Lauren at the time, was pregnant with his child—a child who, once born, would also be his estranged wife’s sibling. (Ed. Note: Where is Jerry Springer when you need him the most?!)

“I felt like my world had ended,” Lauren said. “I was a 19-year-old with a kid.”

Lauren added: “I couldn’t believe the two people I loved and trusted most in the world could betray me like this. It was sick. It’s one of the worst things a mum can do to a daughter.

“Paul may have been a gutless groom but she’s my mum. She’s meant to love and protect me above all others. Instead, she stole my husband, shattering my family and my dreams. For that, I’ll never truly forgive her.”

Lauren’s relationship with Paul began on Valentine’s Day (She was 17 at the time and Paul was 18), when they went on their first date as a couple, just two years prior to the infidelity that not only destroyed their marriage, but also Lauren’s relationship with her mother.

“I met him at a local pub – I fancied him straight away,” she said. “He asked for my number and the next day he texted asking to go on a date to the cinema. We started going out straight after that.”

A few months later, Lauren became pregnant, and their daughter was born in March 2004. Not long after the birth of their daughter, Paul proposed to Lauren, she said yes, and they were married by August of that same year.

“Although we hadn’t planned a family so soon, when our daughter was born we were thrilled,” Lauren said. “Five months later we were getting married in a beautiful church ceremony with friends and family.

“Mum looked on proudly as we exchanged vows. She even splashed out £15,000 ($20,000 USD) on the occasion. And it was a fairy­tale wedding – I had my dream dress and Paul was showering me with compliments.”

Lauren added: “I must have been young and naive as I thought everything was going well. He told me that he wanted to be with me forever.”

Forever for Paul, apparently, was just two months, because it was within that time frame that his marriage with Laurene had already fallen to pieces and was damaged beyond repair. And Lauren had no idea what had been going on behind her back between her mother and husband.

A few weeks after Paul walked out on Lauren and their daughter, Lauren said she started hearing rumors that Paul was living with her mother, and one day, when she saw her mom walking down the street, she noticed that she looked pregnant.

“When I saw her in the street and noticed she had a bump, my mind raced. She clutched her stomach and told me, ‘It’s a cyst.’ I felt so sick, I went home and destroyed all the photos of our wedding,” Lauren recalled.

At that point, Lauren filed for divorce. And in July 2005, nine months after Paul walked out on his family, Lauren’s mom gave birth to his baby.

Upon hearing the news, Lauren said she couldn’t resist calling her mom out.

“I texted her to say ‘Removed the cyst then?’” Lauren said. “She tried to claim the father was another boyfriend but I knew the truth. Paul and Mum officially announced themselves as a couple that summer and my world crumbled.”

Adding insult to injury, five years after exchanging “I do’s” to Lauren, Paul ended up doing the same thing with Lauren’s mother. And Lauren was there to witness the whole thing, because, for the sake of her daughter, she attended the wedding.

“She rang me up and invited me. It was awkward. I got married on the 14th August 2004, they married on the 15th August 2009,” Lauren said. “It was almost too much to bear but I did it for my daughter.”

Lauren continued: “I went to watch mum marry the same man I’d wed five years earlier. As they exchanged vows it was hard not to think of the day Paul had said the same words to me, when mum had stood alongside me, the proud mother of the bride.”

Lauren said despite the ultimate betrayal, her mother has tried to mend fences over the years.

“She initiated it,” Lauren said of her mother’s attempt at rebuilding their severely strained relationship.

“I dropped my brother off at her house and she got in my car, started crying and just said: ‘I’m sorry.’ I told her: ‘Get out of my car.’ She wrote me a letter a couple of weeks later apologizing. And that was the start of us mending our relationship.”

Lauren said that was back in 2006, and years later, she still struggles with the idea of forgiving her mother for what she did.

“We’d get on all right, have a massive falling out, and then get on again,” Lauren said. “I still bring it up and make a comment and she doesn’t like it.

Lauren continued: “Just because we spoke after doesn’t mean I’m over it. Paul never said sorry or tried to apologize to me. I speak to him as he’s married to my mum. I’ve asked him before to explain to our daughter and he just says it’s forgotten about now.”

To this day, Lauren’s mother, who works in child services, is still married to her former son-in-law—a man who has a child with his ex-wife and his ex-wife’s mother, which makes for a very confusing family tree.

For what it’s worth, Lauren has since moved on and is now happily pregnant with her fourth child by her new partner, but she says what her ex-husband and mother did to her has created “trust issues” that she’ll have to deal with for the rest of her life. And on top of that, her relationship with her mother will never be the same.

“Time is a great healer, and mum and I have tried to have a normal relationship. But we will never be as close as we were—and I’ll never fully trust her again,” Lauren explained.

Meanwhile, Mama Julie is still happily married to her daughter’s ex-husband and remains unbothered. “We are married,” she said. “We didn’t have an affair. We are married and that’s it.”

Paul, now 35, refused to comment.

Detroit Cousins Found Shot Dead at Car Crash After Social Media Threats From Angry Ex-Girlfriend

A Detroit family is in mourning after a double shooting claimed the lives of two cousins earlier this week.

Police in Detroit, Michigan say they responded to a call around 2 a.m. early Monday morning (Jan. 20) about a shooting and subsequent car crash in the area of Barlow and Eastwood, near 7 Mile and Gratiot.

When police arrived at the scene, they located the crashed vehicle, a black 2006 Chevrolet Impala, and found the bodies of two men who were later identified by friends and family as cousins Allen Armstrong and Marco Amstrong, who were both 31.

Both men had been shot in the head, police said. One of the men was found inside the vehicle and the other was found lying outside the driver’s side door. The car belonged to Allen, officials said.

Pictured: Allen Armstrong (L) and his cousin Marco Armstrong (R)

A friend of the 31-year-old cousins, who were both fathers and grew up on Detroit’s east side, said they believe the men had been targeted after an ex-girlfriend posted angry comments and death threats on social media.

The friend also said they talked to Allen Saturday night, and Allen told him that he was genuinely concerned about the threatening social media posts and had saved screenshots to his phone.

Officials haven’t confirmed whether the social media posts were related to Allen and Marco Armstrong’s shooting deaths, however, they plan to look into the posts as a part of the ongoing investigation, Fox 2 Detroit reports.

“They should get to the bottom of it but you know how that’s going to go,” one man, who wished to remain anonymous, told the local news station.

Friends of the two cousins described the men as wonderful fathers who loved their family and friends.

Members of the community also expressed disappointment about the high number of homicides in the area.

“Too much death around here, and all this shooting all the time,” Roz Hampton, a neighbor, said.

“I don’t even know what to say about (the murders). That’s just crazy, I’m shocked, like what’s going on,” said another.

Alexis Armstrong, the sister of one of the cousins, has launched a GoFundMe to help with funeral costs.

“My brother and my cousin was killed … and we need help with burying them,” she wrote on the page. CLICK HERE TO DONATE.

North Carolina Father Charged with Murder After 3-Month-Old Son Dies From Injuries Caused by Abuse

A 20-year-old North Carolina man has been charged with first-degree murder after police believe his 3-month-old son died from abuse.

Brandon Scott McDaniel of Clemmons, NC was charged with murder on Thursday (Jan. 17) after originally being charged with felony child abuse and inflicting serious physical injury.

The charges were upgraded when his son, Sloan McDaniel, died from his injuries on Thursday. The newborn was just 2-months and 27 days old.

McDaniel took his newborn son to the hospital for medical treatment on Monday (Jan. 13). The baby had suffered “multiple serious injuries” that caused bleeding in his brain.

Authorities say the injuries were consistent with evidence of child abuse.
McDaniel had been watching his son at his home. Reports say the child was abused on Monday or Sunday.

Debbie McCaffrey, Sloan’s godmother, refused to comment on McDaniel’s charges, and instead chose to cherish the short time the family had with Sloan.

“I would like for (people) to know we are grateful for every day that we got to spend with (Sloan),” she said. “He was a true blessing and a beautiful and happy baby boy.”

Sloan’s other godmother, Daniela Smith, noted the impact Sloan had on their lives.

“When Sloan came into our lives he really showed us how to mature, how to love someone else more than yourself. And really you could just step back from the situation and realize that wow, I am a part of his life.”

Sloane’s family is planning a “Celebration of Life” service and GoFundMe page has been set up to cover burial expenses.

McDaniel is currently being held in Forsyth County Law Enforcement Detention Center without bond. He will appear in court the abuse charges on Jan. 30 and for the murder charge on Feb. 6.

Wendy Williams Reveals NeNe Leakes is Quitting RHOA & Has a Secret: “I Know Something About NeNe That You All Will Cry”

NeNe Leakes has had tough few seasons on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. And it seems she has made an important decision that was reported by Wendy Williams of all people.

On Tuesday’s episode of her talk show, Williams broke the news that NeNe has abruptly decided to quit RHOA—the show she’s starred on since its debut and made her a household name.

“I took a break between commercials…so I looked at my phone between commercials. And NeNe texts, ‘I’m quitting,’” Williams shared with her audience and guest Jerry O’Connell.

Since splitting from her husband last year, Williams has mended her relationship with NeNe and two have become super close.

Through the TV, Williams urged NeNe not quit RHOA and also shockingly revealed that NeNe has a secret she needs to share that will help her co-stars and viewers see her in a more sympathetic light.

Williams said:

“I know something about NeNe that you all will cry, be sad and feel bad for her. She’s carrying the weight of a huge thing on her shoulders. I’m not going to say it, she’s got to say it. But in my opinion, NeNe, you need this platform to explain the other part of your life.”

“Forget arguing with them broads—you’ve got that secret, and that secret is going to melt their hearts,” she added. “Because when she shared it with me, I cried with her.”

The TV host even got tearful on camera as she talked about Nene’s secret.

“NeNe, you need that platform to explain,” Williams said. “That’s all. I’m telling you. NeNe, don’t quit.”

Williams did note, however, that this huge weight NeNe is carrying has nothing to do with her health, her husband Gregg Leakes, or her children.

In response to Williams’ claim, a rep for NeNe tells People that the reality star has NOT made any official decisions about the next season of RHOA.

“It’s been an especially difficult couple of weeks for NeNe, and she was venting to her friend in private correspondence. Nothing has been confirmed or officially decided for next season.”

NeNe has made limited appearances on the current season of Housewives—having zero screen time in the first three episodes—and has fractured relationships with many of her co-stars.

She even contemplated leaving the show altogether.

“There were a lot of rumors around the time and I was really skeptical about what I was going to do,” she told People last year. “I really didn’t know what I was going to do, I really didn’t. I had one foot in and one foot out.”

She added that she sometimes feels misunderstood by her co-stars and the audiences.

“My pain is often misinterpreted. I’m not one of those people who actually express how I feel a lot. I keep that inside, and a lot of [my costars] know that,” she said.

“But I do believe that because somebody is louder or moves more boldly, a lot of time those are the people who always get the finger pointed at them. And honestly, that’s always the case with me.”

South Carolina Man Walks Into Crowded Applebee’s & Shoots Baby Mama After Heated Argument

A South Carolina man is facing very serious charges, including attempted murder, after he allegedly tried to kill his baby mama in the middle of a crowded Applebee’s restaurant.

23-year-old Joseph Raekwon Rapp was arrested over the weekend for his involvement in a shooting at an Applebee’s in Greenwood, S.C.

The victim was identified via her own public social media posts as a woman who goes by the name “Lyric Bryi Crawford” on Facebook.

Here are some things to know about the incident.

Joseph Rapp walked into a crowded Applebee’s in Greenwood, South Carolina and shot his baby mama after a heated argument.

According to a local news report, Joseph Rapp’s baby mama, who goes by the name “Lyric Bryi Crawford” on social media, was eating dinner at an Applebee’s restaurant on Friday (Jan. 17) when Joseph showed up uninvited and confronted her.

The two got into a heated argument, which ended in Joseph pulling out a handgun and shooting her.

Police later confirmed Joseph shot the woman twice in the upper torso. She was taken to a local hospital, where she is still recovering from her injuries.

Joseph Rapp turned himself in to police not long after the shooting.

Shortly after the shooting, Joseph Rapp turned himself in to police at Greenwood’s City Hall, officials said in a news release. He was charged with attempted murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

Rapp is currently being held at the Greenwood County Detention Center.

Police are still investigating the shooting, as well as Rapp’s motive.

Joseph Rapp has a history of domestic violence, police records show.

Police reports show Joseph Rapp was arrested in August 2018 on a second-degree domestic violence charge. He was currently out on bond while awaiting trial on that charge.

Rapp is also currently facing a charge of unlawful neglect of a child, court records show.

According to police, Joseph could face more charges in relation to the Applebee’s shooting.

“Lyric” has spoken out on the shooting on social media, and appears to be in good spirits.

Lyric Bryi Crawford is currently healing from the injuries she sustained the shooting and has posted videos showing her on the road to recovery on Facebook.

In one particular video shared Monday night (Jan. 20), Lyric can be seen walking with her son in the hospital without the assistance of a walker.

She captioned the video (above):

“I put the walker aside and gained more strength walking with my son … I’ve been getting better day by day. I FINALLY get to go home tomorrow. I’m so blessed man!!! Y’all just don’t know how much pain and hurt I was going through. My son looked up at me everyday and I knew I had to become stronger for him. #STRENGTH”

Lyric also posted a picture of her two hours prior to the shooting and spoke on how she’d been working hard to get her body snatched for 2020.

Despite the tragic circumstances, Lyric is still optimistic and plans on coming back way better and stronger than ever.

Lyric and Joseph share a son together and appeared to be the perfect couple, according to social media posts.

Lyric and Joseph Rapp, who were apparently high school sweethearts, often shared pictures of them boo’d up on social media, but hinted at previous issues within their relationship.

“Nobody’s perfect but we in this together,” Rapp captioned one photo of him and Lyric.

Lyric and Joseph also have a young son together, who they both have often shared photos of on social media.

Lyric wrote on Facebook her relationship with Joseph was abusive, however, she still forgives him for trying to take her life.

In a lengthy post on Facebook, Lyric revealed that she had been in an abusive relationship with Joseph for 6 years, and that he tried to break her down in every way possible.

Lyric said that even though Joseph tried to take her life, she still forgives him and is thankful to still be alive.

She wrote:

“You know I’m not gonna get on here and talk junk about Joseph. But i should’ve known from the get go he was weak. He tried to make me weak and stumble with him. And that’s why we never really got along. I was WAY STRONGER than he was.

“All the arguing and cussing and fighting…. yeah i let you win because i knew it wasn’t worth stopping down to his level. I was INDEPENDENT and that’s what upset him the most. He got what he wanted outta me for 6 YEARS !!!

“I have been nothing but good to that BOY… i took care of him when nobody else even wanted to be bothered with him. I DID ALL THAT !!!! I forgive Joseph, I don’t hate him. I’m only forgiving him because I AM STILL HERE !!!! I got my son, my family, my friends, my freedom, and MY LIFE !!!!!”

Lyric also showed gratitude to everyone who showed love and support to her during this tough time.

Prayers up for Lyric and her emotional and physical healing during this tough time.

Porsha Williams Can’t Say She Trusts Fiancé Dennis McKinley Amid More Cheating Rumors: “We’re Working on Our Relationship”

Real Housewives of Atlanta fans have seen the break-up and make-up between Porsha Williams and her fiancé Dennis McKinley during this season.

However, it seems the trust still isn’t there, especially after recent reports that Dennis was spotted with a group of women in the early morning hours.

Porsha was the guest on Watch What Happens Live! with Andy Cohen on Sunday night (Jan. 19), following a RHOA episode in which Dennis sits down with Porsha’s mother and sister and apologizes to them for cheating on Porsha while she was pregnant.

“We’re working on our relationship,” Porsha told Cohen. But when asked if she is now able to trust Dennis, she dodged the question.

“Huh? I think you ask that every time I come here,” she said. “I think every relationship is a work in progress. We have a daughter together. Just pray for us. You know, you pray for yourselves? Add us in there too, baby.”

Cohen then brought up whether recent reports of Dennis being seen with four women in an Atlanta diner at 4 a.m. was a “blip” in their relationship.

“Um… Ugh… I don’t know?” she said. “What do you mean… I don’t know.. I mean… it’s the blogs… he was out. I don’t know,” she said.

“Can y’all just continue to comment and speculate and let me just figure out my life? I’m figuring out my life. Yeah. Yea, Um… I’m figuring it out.”

Though the relationship is clearly not solid, Porsha does seem to be committed to working on it for the sake of her family. But does Dennis have that same commitment?

The Real Housewives of Atlanta airs Sundays on Bravo.

Videos Show Delonte West Acting Erratically & Getting Beat Up in the Middle of the Street in D.C.

Video footage has surfaced that appears to show former NBA player Delonte West acting erratically after getting beat up in the middle of a street in Washington, D.C.

A man that looks very much so like Delonte West could be seen in one clip discussing an alleged altercation with another man who he said had a gun.

When pressed for more details, the man repeatedly shouts “I don’t give a fuck!” before ranting about being the “leader of the muhf**kin got damn Navy Seals!” and calling himself “muhf**kin President Trump!”

Another viral video clip shows the man who appears to be West getting kicked and punched in the middle of the street.

This is far from the first time Delonte West’s well-being has become a cause of concern in recent years.

Not even six months ago, back in August 2019, he was spotted somewhere in the streets looking down and out.

And back in 2016, he was spotted wandering around a Jack in the Box parking lot in Houston by himself with no shoes on and wearing a hospital gown.

When a fan approached him and asked “Are you Delonte West?” the ex-NBA player replied: “I used to be but I’m not about that life anymore.”

A few days later, videos surfaced (via Daily Mail) from January 2016 showing him dancing outside a strip mall and yelling at kids at a basketball game for kids under 12.

A few months later, in June 2016, someone snapped a photo of West walking on a road in his hometown of Prince George’s County, Maryland, and fans on social media speculated that he was homeless and begging for money.

West responded to the rumors, saying that they were far from the truth, and he was actually helping a homeless man.

“I was helping a homeless man in my neighborhood that’s paralyzed from [the] neck down,” he said at the time. “I parked my car and got out to help because it was 90-degree weather and I was feeling blessed at the moment for just having legs.”

All of these 2016 incidents forced his brother Dmitri to come forward and be truthful about West’s struggles with mental health, specifically, bipolar disorder and denounce rumors that he’s on drugs.

“Delonte West is not crazy, he is not on drugs. As far as I know, my brother was suffering from bipolar disorder

“I don’t know what exactly is going on in his mind but I can tell you that he is safe and he’s doing OK. My family are trying to get him the best professional help that’s out there, the best that they can afford.

“You can’t put this down to the basketball or money. He is in a great place, he has a beautiful son, a beautiful daughter and a wife that loves him and gives him tremendous support.

“But sometimes he has this illness that just comes upon him. This condition is like a cancer – it can affect anyone, rich or poor, regardless of whether you are an NBA player or a football player.”

Delonte West famously played with LeBron James with the Cleveland Cavaliers between 2008 and 2010, but his time with the Cavs was marred by rumors that he was sleeping with LeBron’s mama Gloria James—a rumor he once denied, but later alluded to being true in a feature he did with Vice Sports.

“His middle name is Delonte but I didn’t want to name him Delonte West, Jr. just because of that,” he said about his son’s name.

“I don’t want my son going to school and people making fun of him for something his daddy did. He goin’ to school and ‘didn’t your daddy have sex with LeBron’s mamma?’ I don’t want him to deal with all that man.”

Delonte West hasn’t been in the NBA since 2012 when he played for the Dallas Mavericks.

Since then, he’s played for a couple of teams overseas and one minor league time, but he hasn’t touched a professional court since 2015 when he played for the Texas Legends.

College Professor Charged With Felonies for Stealing $185K in Federal Grant Money to Make It Rain in Strip Clubs

A former Drexel University professor was slapped with felony charges after allegedly stealing $185,000 from the institution to make it rain at strip clubs and for other personal use.

Last week, Chikaodinaka Nwankpa, was charged with theft by unlawful taking and theft by deception. Both charges are felonies and the 57-year-old faces up to 14 years of jail time.

According to the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office, Nwankpa abused tens of thousands of grant money issued to the university from the Navy, Department of Energy and the National Science Foundation between 2010 and 2017.

He spent $96,000 at strip clubs and sports venues, like Cheerleaders, Club Risqué (pictured above) and Tacony Club, and more than $89,000 on iTunes purchases, meals, and other unauthorized purchases.

The former chairman of Drexel’s Engineering Department’s deception was discovered when an audit showed numerous unauthorized and “no receipts” purchases, even trying to pass off the strip club expenses as catering and food costs.

Most of the purchases were also made between midnight and 2 a.m.

District Attorney Larry Krasner said:

“Mr. Nwankpa inappropriately and criminally diverted tens of thousands of dollars that were allocated for research purposes toward his own private enjoyment. He betrayed Drexel University and tuition-paying students he was paid to educate.”

Drexel placed Nwankpa on administrative leave when the investigation began. However, he admitted to misusing the funds and resigned.

The professor repaid $53,328 to Drexel, but the university still had to pay $190,000 in a settlement agreement after a separate federal investigation was conducted regarding Nwankpa’s abuses.

Nwankpa was arrested last week and released on 25,000 bail. He surrendered his passport and is scheduled to appear in court for a hearing on January 29.

Rihanna Abruptly Splits From Billionaire Boyfriend After 3 Years of Dating Despite Saying She Was Happy in Love a Few Months Ago

No new album, and no boyfriend. Rihanna has reportedly split from her billionaire boyfriend of three years.

Sources confirm the musician and Saudi businessman Hassan Jameel have called it quits. Details of the breakup are not yet known.

However, just a few months ago they appeared to be a happy couple when they dined with Rihanna’s mother and brother.

Rihanna and Jameel began dating in the summer of 2017 when they were spotted making out in Spain. The two have kept a low-profile relationship and seemed to be serious.

In a 2019 conversation with Interview magazine, RiRi admitted that she was in love and opened up about how she balances love and work.

“I got into a new relationship, and it matters to me. It was like, ‘I need to make time for this.’ Just like I nurture my businesses, I need to nurture this as well. I’ll shut things down for two days, three days at a time. On my calendar we now have the infamous ‘P,’ which means personal days. This is a new thing.”

“I’m actually in an exclusive relationship for quite some time, and it’s going really well, so I’m happy,” she shared in a Vogue interview a few months later.

And back in September, fans believed the singer was pregnant with her first child after she was spotted sporting a noticeable bump at her annual Diamond Ball. However, her team quickly shut down that speculation.

But Rihanna has spoken about motherhood and her desire to have children eventually in numerous interviews.

Though all accounts point toward the relationship being strong, Rihanna did reveal that 2019 had been an “overwhelming” year for her in a November Instagram post.

“To all my friends/family/coworkers who I have yet to get back to in the past months…please forgive me,” she wrote. “This year has been quite an overwhelming one, and I’m working on that ish called Balance. brb.”

Since we don’t know exactly what went down between Rihanna and Hassan, let’s just hope the split is an amicable one.

Tommy Davidson Says Jamie Foxx Was “Competitive” & “Mercilessly Mean” to Him in Upcoming Memoir

Comedian and actor Tommy Davidson is set to release his memoir, Living In Color, later this month. An excerpt from the book reveals Davidson has had a strained relationship with Jamie Foxx since the moment they met.

Davidson and Foxx first worked together in 1991 when Foxx joined the sketch series, In Living Color, which Davidson starred on from the first season.

In the memoir, Davidson writes that things started to go left while the two filmed a sketch featuring Foxx’s would-be-famous character, Wanda.

Davidson was lying on his stomach while “Wanda” gave him a massage. However, Foxx began to improvise by pulling Davidson’s underwear, trying to pull them off and leave the actor naked.

Davidson says the newcomer (Foxx) was lucky because his first reaction was to “bust him in his mouth, saying, ‘What the f**k, motherf**ka!’” Davidson believed Foxx was trying to get cheap laughs at his expense.

Foxx continued to make Davidson the butt of his jokes when he realized he could score some points with creator Kenan Ivory Wayans by doing so.

Their next professional encounter occurred on the set of the 1997 film, Booty Call, which they both co-starred in. Davidson says Foxx didn’t understand the concept of “supporting actor” and “was determined to steal every scene he could.”

The two played a game of one-on-one, which included a bunch of trash-talking from Foxx. When the future Oscar winner was losing 9-0, he charged at Davidson.

“If I had hit my head on the hardtop concrete, that would have been the end of me,” he writes. “I was ready to give Jamie some street-fighting lessons too, but the crew pulled us off each other and held me back.”

The Proud Family star admits that Foxx is “talented,” but laments that his style of humor was too “competitive” and “mercilessly mean.”

He added: “Maybe [Foxx is] a better person now. I would like to believe he is.”

Not to diminish any of Davidson’s experiences with Foxx, but this sort of feels like a case of sour grapes, especially since they have been photographed together throughout the years looking quite chummy.

In any case, Living in Color will be released on January 28th.
