Floyd Mayweather Jr. And DJ Khaled Sued For Cryptocurrency Scam

Floyd Mayweather Jr. and DJ Khaled are in hot water with the law according to TMZ.

A class action lawsuit has been filed by folks who banked their money into a cryptocurrency called Centra Tech and they’re pointing the finger at the champ and the DJ for influencing them to partake in the scam.

The SEC charges the Centra Tech with illegal operations and misleading investors with phony information like executives who don’t exist, all while raising over $32 million due to their celebrity endorsements.

The founders of the company were arrested back in April and are facing fraud and conspiracy charges. The lawsuit not only seeks damages from the aforementioned founders but also the celebrity influencers, Mayweather and Khaled.

These folks lost a LOT of money. Back in February each coin was worth $1 and now they are worth only about $0.02. Yikes.

Lupita Nyong'o! We are not worthy! Get into her melanin magic in the November 2018 issue of VOGUE Spain inside...

 photo lvogue2.png

Lupita Nyong'o was tapped to cover the November 2018 issue of VOGUE Spain, dubbed "The Space Odyssey, Finger Comb issue," and chick is giving us editorial chills!

The Oscar winning actress is flawlessly gorgeous in a captivating cover and beautifully shot spread for the magazine. And she's taking the cover girl crown.

Donning her natural hair, the Black Panther actress gets up close and personal with her editorials that show off her stunning features. Not only are we (and every other black girl) fawning over her knock out spread, Lupita herself is extra excited about it. She hopped on Instagram to share the cover and a few flicks from the spread with her fans, captioning, "I am so proud of this cover story! ¡Que orgullo me da este número! Thank you @voguespain for celebrating me and my work by making me your cover girl this #voguenoviembre!"

Sheesh! This whole production is FIRE!

While thanking everyone on the VOGUE Spain team, it seems the 12 Years A Slave actress threw subtle shade at Grazia Magazine - at least, that kinky hair comment makes it seem that way.

"And thank you for celebrating my kinky hair for real!," she captioned.

The 34-year-old actress called out Grazia magazine last month after they airbrushed her hair off the cover. The photoshop job was apparently to make her "fit a more Eurocentric notion" of beauty.

Here's what she said:

View this post on Instagram

As I have made clear so often in the past with every fiber of my being, I embrace my natural heritage and despite having grown up thinking light skin and straight, silky hair were the standards of beauty, I now know that my dark skin and kinky, coily hair are beautiful too. Being featured on the cover of a magazine fulfills me as it is an opportunity to show other dark, kinky-haired people, and particularly our children, that they are beautiful just the way they are. I am disappointed that @graziauk invited me to be on their cover and then edited out and smoothed my hair to fit their notion of what beautiful hair looks like. Had I been consulted, I would have explained that I cannot support or condone the omission of what is my native heritage with the intention that they appreciate that there is still a very long way to go to combat the unconscious prejudice against black women's complexion, hair style and texture. #dtmh

Prince Harry And Meghan Markle In Australia

 Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are currently on a 16-day tour of New Zealand, Tonga, and Fiji and clearly enjoying their coupledom.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex who are of course expecting their first child recently made a stop in Sidney Australia’s Bondi Beach where they met a local surfing community group, known as OneWave who raise awareness for mental health and wellbeing.

While there the loving couple put their royal swirl sweetness on full display, first with Meghan affectionately rubbing her hubby’s ears…

and later when they shared a laugh before walking hand-in-hand on the beach.

These two can’t hide their happiness which is actually unusual for royal couples. Have you ever noticed that other members of the royal family like Prince William and Kate Middleton are much more demure? That’s because it’s more in line with tradition, according to TheDailyMail.

Citing HBO’s recent royal family documentary, the DM says the royals have a strict policy of not sharing hugs with members of the public and not publicly showing affection by holding hands. Clearly, these two are down to do both as they embraced not only each other but the Aussies as well.

TheDailyMail was on hand for Meghan and Harry’s appearance and spoke with a pregnant woman who talked to Meghan. According to the woman named Charlotte, the Duchess of Sussex isn’t getting much sleep during her first trimester.

Charlotte talked to Meghan about pregnancy.
Charlotte is also expecting and had her two-year-old son, Finn, with her..
She said: ‘Meghan told me that pregnancy was like having jet lag. She said she was up at 4.30am this morning doing yoga in her room as she couldn’t sleep.

Poor thang!

Vince Staples Is Getting Into Acting With New Lead Film Role

Vince Staples is so much more than a rapper, and now he’s adding even more to his resume. Not only is he a musician and Sprite’s number one ambassador, but not, he’s getting into the acting world as well.

The Long Beach native has just landed his first leading role in the film, Punk, which is going to be directed by Richard Hughes, who will also be making his debut as a director.

Punk is said to be centered around the protagonist Peter, played by Staples, who goes on a road trip with some free-spirited people after receiving some disappointing news via a rejection letter. While embarked on said trip, Peter will learn that he contrary to what he might have believed, he doesn’t really know the people around him as well as he previously thought. He ends up finding out while on the trip that he is on the road with a group of bank robbers and someone who is on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Brian Kavanaugh-Jones and Braden Aftergood will produce the movie. Aftergood has previously produced movies including 2012’s Battleship and this year’s Siberia. Kavanaugh-Jones worked on this year’s Insidious: The Last Key.

This wouldn’t be Vince’s first time working within the movie world. The Long Beach rapper has had his music featured in the film Creed with the track “Waiting For My Moment” along with his contribution to the Black Panther soundtrack.

Aside from his flourishing acting career, the rapper has just wrapped up a tour across the United States with Childish Gambino.

As of now, no release date has been revealed for Vince’s upcoming leading role, but be on the lookout for Punk to make it to the big screen sometime soon.

Boy, oh boy — the midterm elections are something else this year and Republicans are pulling all the punches. Conservative street artist Sabo went so far as to disre-speck Congresswoman Maxine Waters by swapping a photo of killer Michael Myers and replacing it with her face on big a** billboard in West Hollywood, promoting the upcoming Halloween thriller.

Sabo told the Hollywood Reporter that the text he added to the advertisement — which read #Uncivil Democrats” — is a reference to Waters telling a crowd in June to make things uncomfortable for President Donald Trump and his Cabinet members.

SMH. Will the offensive billboard be taken down? Or will Republicans claim ‘freedom of speech”?  Find out next time on Midterm madness.

Jeannie Mai And Tamera Mowry Talk Weed On “The Real”

Things recently got really real on “The Real” Thursday when two of the hosts told a funny kush-laced story.

During the show that also included the ladies of “Married To Medicine” who had a terse convo about this season, Loni Love, Tamera Mowry, Jeannie Mai and Adrienne Bailon had a convo about weed.

According to Loni and Tamera, despite their efforts, they absolutely can NOT get high.

Tamera also added that she tried it with Jeannie who’s apparently an expert, but it still didn’t work.

Loni Love: I can’t get high.

Tamera Mowry-Housley: Me neither!

Loni: Yeah. I tried. I know, I know…

Jeannie Mai: Are you guys having the right brownies?

[The Real audience laughs]

Loni: No, let me tell you, every guy –

Adrienne Houghton: Girl, it almost made me die! I’m trying to tell you!

Loni: Every guy that I have dated that smokes, will try to get me high, and I can’t. They do everything. They… blow it in my face…

Jeannie: Shotgun… bong you…

Loni: All of it, I can’t.

Tamera: Jeannie tried to get me high. And I didn’t get high!


Tamera: No, yeah, she did.

[The Real audience laughs]

Loni: I told you, tell Tam something, everybody gonna know! Everybody!

Adrienne: And it didn’t happen still?

Tamera: No!

Jeannie: OK, I will give it up to Tam so hard because she –

Tamera: I tried!

Jeannie: She tried, and she was open to it…

Tamera: It’s legal now, so I tried it!

Jeannie: Yes.

Adrienne: Yeah.

[The Real audience laughs]

Jeannie: She – all I said was “Tam, all you have to do is puff, puff, pass.” And she puffed, and she puffed – she didn’t pass – she puffed again –

Tamera: I did. Nothing.

[The Real audience laughs]

Jeannie: And it didn’t work!

Tamera: Nothing!

Jeannie: I don’t know why.

Tamera: I don’t know why!

Jeannie: Is it because some people are so focused?

[Audience members suggest Tamera wasn’t inhaling properly]

Tamera: I was inhaling it! She taught me! She was like [DEMONSTRATES INHALING]. And I did it!

Jeannie: I was like hotboxing her at that point. I was like [BLOWS IN TAMERA’S FACE].

Tamera: Yeah! She was trying!

Adrienne: What was Jeannie doing?

Tamera: Jeannie was getting high!

[Adrienne’s laughter]

So Jeannie’s clearly about that life, why do YOU think Tamera couldn’t get high???

Brittany Renner’s Sex Stories In “Judge This Cover” Has Folks Speculating


Booty Goddess Brittany Renner recently released her memoir of mysterious (celebrity) sexcapades, and now that folks have gotten them in the mail, they’ve had time to speculate about who she did and didn’t smash between the covers. In the past, Renner has been romantically linked to Lil Uzi Vert, Tekashi 6ix9ine, Drake and Colin Kaepernick.

Brittany seemingly places one face to a chapter in an instagram post. She says under a photo of Lil Uzi Vert — ‘Chapter 7. “I swallowed your kids twice before noon, I call that a Champion’s Breakfast.” ‘

Furthermore, did she just confirmed she gave Tekashi the blicky booty???

Brittany Renner could just be stirring the pot with folks who are guessing WHO she did WHAT with, in her memoir — And we have to admit, the allegations are spicy! Although we haven’t read any of the copy, fans who have, are suggesting Brittany flew herself to see Colin Kaepernick and smash, then he dumped her! Another juicy story going around is that Drake invited Brittany over to partake and a six-woman orgy, and she declined.

Oh, and folks are now suggesting Brittany kinkily smashed Trey Songz.

Will YOU be reading to see for yourself? Hit the flip to see how else folks are reacting to Brittany Renner’s poon odyssey.

Michael B. Jordan is the gift that keeps on giving. The actor heard about US Open winner Naomi Osaka's obsession with him, thanks to Ellen DeGeneres, so he invited her to the CREED 2 premiere with a sexy pic. Everything inside...

Last month, Naomi Osaka appeared on the "Ellen DeGeneres Show" after beating Serena Williams and nabbing the US Open championship.

During their chat, Ellen was able to get Naomi to reveal her celebrity crush. It wasn't easy, but after some probing, Naomi revealed she's crushing on none other than Michael B. Jordan. Can you blame her?

Peep her appearance at the 3:45 mark below:

Well, Naomi's 21st birthday rolled around a few days ago and Ellen hopped on Twitter to give her a birthday present. She posted a shirtless picture of MBJ attached with a Happy Birthday message and tagged the CREED actor.

Check it:

 photo mellen1.png

Naomi responded, "pls block me" with the crying emoji. Ha!

That's when MBJ jumped in, posted a FRESH shirtless picture and invited her to come to the CREED 2 premiere:

 photo mellen2.png

Lordt! That CREED training has done his body MORE than good.

Of course, she accepted...if he's serious. And Ellen dropped in to say "You're welcome."

 photo mellen3.png


After reprising his role as Adonis Creed, the YBF hottie will transform into a hitman in The Silver Beat. It's a film adaptation of Derek Haas' book series that Michael will both star in and produce for Lionsgate. In the thriller, MBJ will play Columbus, a man who becomes a feared and respected hitman in the criminal underworld.

Shoot your shot, Naomi!

Amerie is back.  She's looking gorgeous and has plenty of new music to serve up.  Deets inside...

It's been over 2 years since she released any new music (she dropped the EP Drive back in 2016), and almost 10 years since she released a full album.  The "1 Thing" singer is now a mom, a wife and looks exactly the same as she did back when she had us on our Go-Go club tip.

Today, Amerie dropped a double EP called 4AM MULHOLLAND and AFTER 4AM (and that extra 'i' she added to her name years ago), a follow up to her 2009 album In Love and War.  And it's a nice little Friday bop for the weekend.


The 38-year-old fab chick dished to Billboard about being jaded with the industry and leaving Def Jam saying:

“I experienced pushback because I’m a female who knows herself and doesn’t have problems speaking up.”

As for what she's been up to in the last several years:

I was thinking about my next project in 2012 and still making music, but I was writing [books] and wanted to put all my time into writing. I kept thinking I would get to music, but for the most part it was writing and learning story craft. I was living, breathing writing -- I wrote six novels in the past [six] years. One is done, two are almost finished, some I’m revising, others are in various states. But I was really missing actively recording, because it gives you a different creative outlet. I’m passionate about writing and story, but it creates a different kind of fatigue.

On her new music being darker and moodier:

The funny thing to me, I've always felt like my music is dark -- even when no one else thinks that. Like with “Why Don’t We Fall in Love,” I got on the video with the director and he’s like, “OK, I’m thinking summertime, you on a beach," and I go, “OK, this is cool, but actually my initial thought was black, red and a highway.” No one else seems to feel that.

You can get the rest of the interview HERE.

By the way, she wrote this EP while pregnant with her adorable now 5-month-old little nugget River Rowe.



The double EP is available now on iTunes, Soundcloud and everywhere.  You copping it?!

Lil Wayne’s Releases “Uproar” Video

Lil Wayne finally blessed fans with the visuals for the most popular single off the Carter V album, Uproar — and it wouldn’t be right without some #UproarChallenge folks in the mix.

Everyone knows you can’t do a song challenge music video without Shiggy these days, so of course he’s in the video getting his Harlem Shake on. Swizz Beatz, who produced the track also makes an appearance in the Mills Miller director video, as well as a random cameo from Fatboy SSE.

Does Tunechi new video hold up to the dance challenge hype? You be the judge.

Tiffany Haddish Is Currently Working On Putting Out A Rap Album

Tiffany Haddish skyrocketed to fame with the quickness this past year, and it’s all thanks to her being funny–but that doesn’t mean she’s going to stick to just one thing for the rest of her career. In fact, she’s already got her next move locked and loaded, and it’s probably not what any of us would expect.

The comedian revealed her new side hustle during an interview with the New York Times

Here’s the excerpt from the interview that reveals what might make up an upcoming project outside of the comedy and acting world:

“Haddish’s new goal is to create an empire, though she is not sure exactly how to go about it, or if it will be in the entertainment business or what. But she wants to have 40 or 50 people working for her who will be able to buy houses, put their kids through school, and pass their money down. “The end goal,” she said, “is to create intergenerational wealth and spread joy, and make sure everyone who works with me can spread the same thing and have it trickle down.”

In the meantime, she is dabbling in music and trying to make a rap album.”

Yep, you read that right. Tiffany Haddish is working on a rap album.

Comedians making music is nothing new: from The Lonely Island to the current day, where Lil Duval is climbing the charts with his track “Lil Duval – Smile (Living My Best Life),” there’s no more perfect time than now for Tiffany to dabble.

No word yet on whether the songs are going to be a real effort at rapping or some more light-hearted comedy songs, but hopefully we will find out sooner than later.

Would you cop a rap album from Tiffany Haddish!?

A new poll claims Beyonce is the most politically divisive celebrity in the U.S., despite the fact she rarely speaks politics. But you still know exactly where she stands.  Let's discuss inside...

Folks are trying it and reaching for straws at every length at this point.

A new poll by Morning Consult found that the LEMONADE singer has been found to be "the MOST politically divisive celebrity" in the United States. This was the result despite the fact Bey hardly ever talks politics.

The poll found that Beyoncé has a 63% favorable rating with Democrats and a -3% favorable rating among Republicans, which results in a 66-point gap.  Ha.  They hate the fact her pure existence screams unapologetically black feminism. 

They will deal.

The Hill reports:

That 66-point gap was the biggest between the two political parties of any entertainer on the list.

Fox News’ Sean Hannity took the runner-up spot on the list, with a 28 percent net favorability rating for the GOP and -37 among Democrats.

LeBron James, Rush Limbaugh, and Ellen DeGeneres rounded out the top 5 spots on the most divisive celebrity poll. Rihanna made it in the top 10. How is it that Beyonce, of all celebrities, was named as the most politically divisive when she rarely speaks out on political issues? We know: Racism. It's showing, and we peep it. We're not the only ones either:













Sure, she incorporates black American culture into Coachella sets.  Sure, she blasted the word FEMINISM across her big ass stage at both the Formation Tour & the On The Run II tour.  And sure, she has campaigned for Hillary Clinton and is besties with the Obamas.  We guess the fact she is so powerful in her own right before she did these things is what people have a problem with. 

Folks like LeBron are MUCH more often direct and vocal, yet he ranks lower in the divisiveness scale?  Likely because he's a man at the end of the day, and his voice is welcomed and accepted.  Intersectionality is a b***. 

If their voices are "divisive", then oh damn well.  We applaud BOTH for continuing to do what they do and keeping those on the wrong side of history mad uncomfortable.

Jeremiah Harvey And Mother Talk Teresa Klein’s Sex Assault Accusation

We’re still seething after watching the woman the internet dubbed #CornerstoreCaroline accuse 9-year-old Jeremiah Harvey of sexually assaulting her inside a New York bodega.

Recently, Jeremiah and his mother, Someko Bellille, spoke to ABCNews about how traumatic this incident has been for both of them and how scared they were that the police would escalate the situation.

“It’s still hard because lately on my mind, like, I can’t think nothing but this,” Jeremiah, sitting alongside his mother, said. “I felt humiliated because of the way she was acting. I started to tear up.”

Jeremiah is an amazing young child and he really and truly believed that the police were going to take his mother away from him all because trash azz Teresa Klein is a racist beyotch. We’re LIVID.

*wipes tears* we wish nothing but the worst for Teresa Klein.

New Escape Room Trailer

This trailer feels like deja vu (if you’ve seen the Saw movies) with a deliciously sinister twist that includes Jay Ellis and a diverse cast trapped in a next-level Horror-thriller that looks pretty cool.

Peep some Twitter chitter-chatter over Escape Room on the flip.
