“Why u come fa me like that lmaoooooo,” she wrote along with a photo of an MP3 file titled “TRUTH HRTS FT DABABY.”

DaBaby responded on his own IG with a screenshot of Lizzo’s post, writing: “Uh-oh” with the two eyes emoji.

He also commented on Lizzo’s original post, writing: “Cuz you my boo” with a kissy face and crying laughing emoji.

Lizzo and Dababy also have two totally different styles, so it would be interesting to hear how they sound together on one song.

No word on the track’s release, but new singles are typically released on Fridays, so we’ll definitely be on the lookout for it!

20-Year-Old Man Commits Suicide After Constantly Being Bullied for Dating a Transgender Woman

A Philadelphia man who was bullied in a viral video for dating a transgender woman has committed suicide, his friends say.

20-year-old Maurice “Reese Him Daddie” Willoughby reportedly took his own life after battling depression and constantly defending his relationship with a transgender woman named Faith. Aazios was the first to report the story.

Willoughby—who tattooed Faith’s name on his forehead—publicly defended the relationship and praised his girlfriend in a Facebook post shortly before his death. He wrote:

“Y’all can say whatever about faith I really don’t care if she not passable I don’t care if she wasn’t born a woman she is a woman to me & I love her flaws that’s what makes her faith if you heard her story it’s motivating….. I’m happy you should be happy for me”

Earlier this year, Willoughby was bullied by a group of men. They called him names and shamed him for dating Faith. The video went viral on social media.

“That was my friend and everyone who took part in [bullying] him need to be in jail,” Amethyst Jade Lee, one of Willoughby’s friends wrote on Facebook after learning of his passing.

Friends say Willoughby was constantly bullied over the relationship which took a toll on the 20-year-old, leading to depression and adding to his history of mental health issues.

An friend who chose to be anonymous told Aazios:

“He was getting picked on and joked on all the time. Where we are from, if you like trans woman, and you black, the streets will talk about you, fight you, even try to kill you. He was dealing with a lot.”

“The black community has to stop shaming people for who they choose to love,” another friend wrote in an Instagram message sharing Willoughby’s story.

Aazios notes that studies have shown that men who are attracted to transwomen often deal with issues regarding the attraction as well as the backlash they may receive from others.

Our thoughts go out to Willoughby’s family and his girlfriend Faith.

North Carolina Dad Walks Into Sheriff’s Office & Admits to Slitting 15-Year-Old Daughter’s Throat, Killing Her

A North Carolina man walked into the local sheriff’s office and confessed to slitting his teenage daughter’s throat, killing her.

Joshua Burgess entered the Union County Sheriff’s office just before 9:30 a.m. on Sunday (Aug. 18) and told the dispatcher that he was there to turn himself in.

The dispatcher asked for his name and began to search for his arrest warrant. Burgess stopped her and told her that she wouldn’t find his name because “he had just killed someone.”

The 32-year-old revealed to the dispatcher that he had slit his 15-year-old daughter’s throat earlier that morning while she was visiting him for the weekend. Police rushed to the man’s home and found Zaria Burgess dead inside.

Burgess was arrested and charged with first-degree murder. He’s being held without bond. He has not entered a plea and his next court appearance is scheduled for next month.

Upon further investigation, Burgess has also been charged with one count of statutory rape of a person 15 years of age or younger, first-degree statutory sex offense, first-degree kidnapping and first-degree sexual exploitation of a minor.

WSOC reports that there was a “collective gasp” in the courtroom on Monday when officials detailed the horrific crime on Monday, including revealing that Burgess strangled his daughter before cutting her throat.

A motive for the murder has not been revealed, but Zaria’s family has been left devastated by the tragic loss

“She was the type of kid to come in a room come or in a house and say, ‘Hey everybody’—just wanting to make everybody smile,” her cousin Dytaysha Wadsworth, told WSCO.

“She was so young and nobody deserves to leave this world like that, especially by someone they thought was gonna protect them and be there for them,” Wadsworth continued.

“This is just a case where it’s pure evil,” Tony Underwood, chief communications officer for the UCSO told WSCO.

“The details of this murder are indescribable,” Sheriff Eddie Cathey added. “There is no logical answer to explain why this man did what he is accused of doing. Our hearts and prayers are with Zaria’s mom and her family.”

Remy Ma Defends Nicki Minaj Cursing Joe Budden Out on Queen Radio, Says She Would’ve Done the Same Thing

Wayment! What the hell is going on?! Are we living in an alternate universe? Has hell frozen over? Quick! Look outside … ARE PIGS FLYING?!

Remy Ma, Joe Budden and Jinx just released their first “State of the Culture” episode on Revolt since last week’s Nicki Minaj vs. Joe Budden on Queen Radio incident, and of course, the situation was brought up as a topic of discussion.

Jinx explained how all of the screaming from Nicki was off-putting to him, and before he could finish, Remy jumped in to defend Nicki confronting Joe, basically saying that she can do whatever she wants on her platform, and honestly, she should have done the same thing in that same position.

“Well, it’s her show,” Remy started. “And if I can get somebody that has been pissing me off for the last couple of years to sit there and tell them to shut the f**k up, and make sure that they are shutting the f**k up and turn their f**king mic off … and know nothing is gonna happen … I’m gonna wile on you. And I got Pap standing right there, like, what we doing? Absolutely!”

Remy went on to say that she actually understood Nicki’s position and where she was coming from.

“I got some of the things she was saying,” Remy explained. “Because I know how that feels. To feel like people that was supposed to be your friends or people you thought was cool with you, and then they say some left-field shit. You be like, damn I thought we was alright. It’s upsetting, it makes you angry. It makes you want to come for them. I know how that feels.”

Watch below:

Remy’s comments defending Nicki Minaj are interesting, to say the least, considering that just two years ago the two were making headlines after going back and forth on wax with “ShETHER” (Remy going at Nicki) and “No Frauds” (Nicki’s response to Remy).

So, it was very surprising to hear Remy seemingly taking her arch-nemesis’ side.

Of course that doesn’t mean that they’re friends now, but maybe one day we can witness these two making up and hopping on a track together (a la Meek Mill and Drake).

Police Transport Kenya Moore’s Ex Matt Jordan to Rehab Facility After Punching Girlfriend in the Face

Former Real Housewives of Atlanta star Matt Jordan has entered rehab following a recent arrest after he punched his girlfriend in the face.

A spokesperson for the Pinal County Jail in Arizona exclusively confirmed to Radar Online that Jordan was released from their custody on July 27 and transported to rehab facility Horizon Health and Wellness.

The treatment facility provides inpatient and outpatient services for domestic violence, behavioral health, psychiatric, and substance abuse.

As we previously reported, Jordan was arrested last month after punching his girlfriend Valerie Bell in the face during an altercation in a Denny’s parking lot.

According to the police report, he punched her with a “closed fist.” The victim had injuries “to the bridge of her nose, bruising, redness, and swelling.” Police also observed blood on her clothes.

A second woman witnessed the incident. She said Jordan also “snatched” a cigarette from her mouth and attempted to throw her cigarette pack on the Denny’s rooftop.

Jordan was also arrested that same night for outstanding warrants stemming from other incidents.

Jordan appeared on a few seasons of The Real Housewives of Atlanta while dating Kenya Moore.

The relationship was tumultuous. Moore was candid about Jordan’s violent behavior and was eventually granted a temporary restraining order against him.

Actress Who Used Billboard to Get Tyler Perry’s Attention Lands Role in One of His Shows

The actress who commanded Tyler Perry’s attention with a billboard just had her dreams come true.

Racquel Bailey just shot an episode on Perry’s upcoming BET show, Sistas. She plays a police officer who had a relationship with one of the main characters. She only appears in the season 1 finale—which Perry directed—but her character may return in season 2.

Bailey’s story went viral earlier this year after she paid $2,000 to have a billboard hoisted outside of Perry’s Atlanta studios. The billboard included her headshot and contact information.

It read: “Attention Mr. Perry, Racquel Bailey is your next leading lady.”

The billboard did catch Perry’s attention, but he wasn’t too pleased about it, especially given that he was already familiar with Bailey’s work.

“Auhhh…. soooooo…… here’s the deal. This is not the way to get my attention if you’re looking for a role in one of my shows,” he wrote on Instagram.

“I love that you want to work with me, and I love that you invest in yourself. But when you do things like this it puts my team on high alert and makes me look at you sideways,” he continued.

Though she wasn’t the first, he advised others not to copy Bailey’s stunt and reminded hopefuls that it’s free to audition.

View this post on Instagram

Auhhh…. soooooo…… here’s the deal. This is not the way to get my attention if you’re looking for a role in one of my shows. Please DON’T DO THIS, SAVE YOUR MONEY!! This is the third time that someone has done this. PLEASE STOP! To audition is FREE!! I’m sure you can use that money for a better purpose. I love that you want to work with me, and I love that you invest in yourself. But when you do things like this it puts my team on high alert and makes me look at you sideways. I know the message that you want to send is a positive one, but this comes across as the opposite. Again, the best way to work for me is to AUDITION and it’s FREE! We post breakdowns all the time for actors. JUST COME AND AUDITION. And by the way, you were great in THE NIGHT OF! It was my favorite show a couple years ago. I ALREADY SAW YOU!! So just audition and keep your money!! Again, I appreciate your effort, but that’s not the way to work for me. God bless you dreamer. I have no doubt you will make it one day!!

A post shared by Tyler Perry (@tylerperry) on

“Tyler Perry is one of the greatest filmmakers that ever will be,” Bailey told TMZ after Perry’s initial response.

“As an actress, when he speaks, I should listen, and I would be a fool if I didn’t. But this was my leap of faith, my choice, something I felt that I needed to do to stand out.”

And she did stand out. According to TMZ, the billboard led to several casting directors reaching out to her, leading to 20 other auditions. She has landed two more acting gigs, and has a few more auditions scheduled.

Sistas is about a group of black women from different walks of life who share the common bond of being single. It’s set to premiere on BET this fall.

Black Woman Says Donald Trump’s Racist Rhetoric is Making Her White Husband Hate Her

A series of tweets from a Black woman confessing that Donald Trump’s racist rhetoric was ruining her interracial marriage went viral over the weekend.

“My white Republican husband is starting to hate me because the longer we live through this administration the ‘BLACKER’ I become,” wrote a heartbroken Mississippi woman on Twitter.

“Any interracially and opposing politically affiliated couples going through this?” she asked. “Like … I have NO idea how to balance who we are..or are becoming.”

Under the username Glass Butterfly, the woman went on to share the many challenges she’s going through within her marriage, thanks to Trump emboldening racism.

“I fake dreaded my hair…I wear African garb….I talk about the GOOD FIGHT,” she said. “I’m the LAST person he wants to be involved with. If this is a test…HE is failing miserably.”

The woman continued: “What’s weird…everything I do for him and our household is starting to be followed by derogatory comments towards me and I’m starting to feel like I’m sucking MASSA’S d**k so I won’t get 40 lashings. And I start to think is it the right media or has this always been who he is”

Glass Butterfly’s initial tweet (which has since been deleted) spawned thousands of retweets and hundreds of comments from a variety of people, ranging from those sympathetic to her dilemma to those who basically told her she knew what she was getting into when she married a conservative white man.

“You married a white Republican. What did you expect?” wrote one Twitter user.

Another user commented: “Excuse me sis? You’re still with him? I’m confused, where’s [your] self worth?”

Another wrote: “Okay first thought. Why did you marry a white republican? Second thought he was a racist regardless of Trump. Perhaps he just wanted to own a black wife. Crude I’m sure but something to think about.”

The various Twitter responses prompted Glass Butterfly to come back the next day and continue her thoughts.

“I didn’t realize this tweet would get this much attention…” she wrote. “Thank you all for your advice and love. It made me cry. I’m trying to come to terms with who my husband really is and it hurts, it’s hard and I’m confused.”

She continued: “The hate is REALLY REAL out here..so is the LOVE. I said my ‘White Republican Husband’ didn’t call him a MAGAT! But complicity to me is the same thing.

“Until the GOP constituents take their head out the sand and stop believing 45s lives he’s gonna continue to separate not only Children at the border…but also American families who identify as Dems and Republicans.

She concluded: “According to this tweet I’m not the only one going through having a divisive home. I don’t think my husband hates me but it’s how he makes me feel when he says certain things and because He’s not the greatest communicator…I’m left with just my feelings.

“I love him…I know he loves me and for the black delegation with all the hate spewing…shame on you and I’ll be praying goodness eventually find your heart. This world is filled with too much hate already!”

Judging by most of the Twitter reactions on Glass Butterfly’s thread, her message was received loud and clear by those in situations similar to hers.

“Thank you for this truth, sis,” wrote one fellow Black woman married to a White Republican man. “From us. For real, even the fact that you said something… wow. I want you to know I get it.

“We’re newlyweds and really are enjoying every part of each other [except] politically,” Desiree Muffin shared. “And it’s still not that bad. But there are definitely parts I think neither one of us planned on. The current culture is forcing everyone’s hand.”

“Thank you sis!!” Glass Butterfly replied. “All relationships are hard…takes work. This is just one arena where it takes a lil overtime. Blessings to you and your union.”

Eva Marcille Legally Changes Daughter’s Last Name to Sterling, Severing Last Connection to Biological Father Kevin McCall

Eva Marcille’s family just made a major change and its all in an effort to completely leave her ex-boyfriend in her past.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star married Georgia lawyer Michael Sterling last year. The couple shares a son and Marcille is currently pregnant with their second child.

However, Marcille also has a 5-year-old daughter, Marley Rae, from a previous relationship with musician Kevin McCall.

During her segment on The Ricky Smiley Show, Marcille just announced that she has legally changed Marley’s last name to Sterling.

“Long story short, we all have the name Sterling, and Marley is the only one with her biological father’s name and I saw it necessary and Mike saw it necessary to change her name,” she explained.

“[As of] yesterday I can say that thank you for the honorable Judge Manning here in Fulton County court granted me a name change for Marley. She is now officially and legally Marley Rae Sterling.”

She explained the judge ordered the name change to be applied to Marley’s birth certificate, social security card, health records, and all other vital records.

The legal name change announcement comes just one day after McCall shared a post about co-parenting that also included a throwback photo of himself and Marcille.

Marcille and McCall have had a tumultuous relationship and have struggled to co-parent. She has often referred to McCall as a “sperm donor” and states that Sterling is Marley’s dad.

Back in 2017, McCall basically disowned Marley after Marcille posted photos of Sterling and the little girl. McCall deleted all photos of Marley from his Instagram and wrote in an IG story:

“Out of sight out of mind. Erased from my memory. Go play games with another person it’s not working anymore she’s yours. Forever and you can keep her.”

Marcille has stated that she keeps Marley away from her father because of his abusive behavior, even revealing during an RHOA episode that she often has to move in order to protect her family from McCall finding them.

Steph Curry Makes 7-Figure Donation to Howard University to Bring Back Golf Program

Basketball phenom Steph Curry has pledged a 7-figure donation to help fund a new golf program at University that will roll out over the next six years.

Via CBS Sports:

At a press conference on Monday in Washington, D.C., Curry pledged to make a donation that is reportedly in the seven figures to help support the university’s quest to bring back the sport, which had been absent for 40 years.

Not only will it help get the sport off the ground after its dormancy, but it comes at a time when Howard is positioned to jump to Division I in golf—the first Division I program at the school.

“Golf is a sport that has changed my life in ways that are less tangible, but just as impactful,” Curry said about the imminent donation in a press release.

“It’s a discipline that challenges your mental wherewithal from patience to focus, and is impossible to truly master, so when you hear about these passionate student athletes who have the talent but don’t have a fair shot at the game, it’s tough. I feel really honored to play a small role in the rich history of Howard University.”

Curry, a six-time All-Star and two-time MVP winner, plays for the Warriors on the west coast. In college, he starred at Davidson in Davidson, North Carolina.

So what’s the connection between him and a small college in D.C., you ask? Well, Curry met a Howard student named Otis Ferguson while he was viewing a documentary in January about the 2015 shooting of nine black worshippers in a South Carolina-based church.

Ferguson brought up how he had to pass up golf to attend Howard—which, at the time, did not have a golf program. Curry sparked an idea from there to resurrect the program.

“The idea around re-creating Howard’s golf team and turning it into a Division I program for men and women was born on that specific night,” Curry said. “Now, seven and a half or eight months later, we’re here.”

While Curry is best-known for his performances on the hardwood, he’s no slouch on the course, either. He played on his high school golf team and has made numerous appearances as an amateur and celebrity golfer in various tournaments over the last decade.

Because Howard is starting from scratch, it will take time to hire coaches, recruit players and relaunch the program. The university is targeting its official foray back into the sport for the 2020-21 academic year.

We love to see it!

Jamie Foxx & Katie Holmes Break Up After He’s Spotted Partying With Singer Sela Vave

It’s over between Jamie Foxx and Katie Holmes, Page Six reports.

After pictures emerged showing the Oscar winner partying in Los Angeles on Friday night with much-younger singer Sela Vave, news outlets speculated that Foxx, 51, was cheating on Holmes, 40.

But a spy at La Esquina overheard the actress — who was having dinner with girlfriends at the Kenmore Street restaurant — tell a pal, “What Jamie does is his business — we haven’t been together for months.”

When we called another Holmes pal to check it out, they confirmed that the pair split in late May, a few weeks after their much-heralded first red-carpet appearance at the Met Gala.

They’d been together since 2013 — about a year after Holmes divorced Tom Cruise. The pair were highly secretive about their early trysts, meeting up late at night at hotels and sneaking out back entrances to avoid tattletales.

After that, the relationship became Hollywood’s worst-kept secret for many years.

They finally appeared together in public for the first time at Clive Davis’ Pre-Grammys Gala in New York in 2018, and they walked a red carpet together for the first time at the Met Ball this May.

As for Jamie’s new “friend,” apparently they’ve been hanging out since at least June, judging by the numerous pics and videos she’s posted with him on Instagram.
