Draymond Green Suspended For 1 Game For Cursing Out Kevin Durant

“We supposed to be brothas!” goes the famous line in Menace II Society as a young man is being robbed at gunpoint for his Mustang and some fast food.

Apparently, Draymond Green either didn’t see this film or didn’t take in the message, because Monday night in a game against the Clippers a mercurial Draymond was NOT treating Kevin Durant like his closest kin. He was treating him like a bi**h, or at least that what he was calling KD on the bench. A bi**h. A lot of ’em. And that was what happened ON the court.

According to ESPN, here’s how it all started. Near the end of regulation, Draymond grabbed a rebound completely ignored a wide-open and hysterically clapping Kevin Durant who was calling for the ball in an attempt to win the game, and lost control of the ball before a shot could be taken. Both men were frustrated on the bench and Draymond unleashed one of his typical bratty tirades on KD.

According to ESPN, things got even uglier back in the locker room after teammates chided Draymond for his poor decision. In defending himself, Draymond got loud and wrong. So loud and so wrong that people outside hear the commotion. Coach Steve Kerr did his best to tamp down the extent of the incident.

“Draymond is always going to be who he is,” Kerr said. “Draymond is a powerful force. You guys know that. He’s a huge reason why we’ve had so much success here, and Draymond is going to continue playing the way he plays, and I don’t see him operating any other way.”

Draymond is going to be who he is, abrasive, and KD is going to be who he is, sensitive and petty. These two might kiss and make up, but KD will not forget when it comes down to free agency this summer…

Rob Kardashian Getting Help From Kris Jenner, Blame Blac Chyna For Financial Struggles

Robert Kardashian is seeing his share of financial struggles right now and he blames it all on Blac Chyna. But no worries, mommy Kris is here to help him out!

According to court documents quoting Rob obtained by The Blast, Rob says he lost thousands of dollars because of his baby mama and is now forced to sell half of his sock line Arthur George to his mother to recoup.

Rob said,

“When the business was struggling, my mother infused it with capital to keep it afloat and from her infusion gained a 50% share in the company.

Previously, the line’s success was in large part due to my regular posting and general promotion on social media. Angela’s [Blac Chyna] request for a restraining order against me includes various prohibitions on what I could post online. In order to avoid any potential future issues, I nearly eliminated my social media presence.”

Yikes! So Blac Chyna’s shenanigans last year stopped him from getting those IG coins? Will a judge see it this way? Rob is also reportedly moved in with his mother after losing his house earlier this year.

“My income now is insufficient to pay for my expenses. As of Jan. 17, 2018, I am short nearly $300,000 which my accountant projects I will need to pay for my 2107 tax liabilities. I no longer own a home. I now live in my mother’s home.”

Who do YOU think is to blame for Rob’s financial crisis?

Michelle Obama officially kicked off her "Becoming" book tour in her hometown of Chicago. Go inside for the tidbit she shared that's not in her memoir, plus flicks from GLAMOUR magazine's Women of the Year Awards....

Forever FLOTUS Michelle Obama just released her memoir, "Becoming." And to celebrate, she kicked off her book tour in her old stomping grounds of Chicago inside the United Center.  These tickets are harder to get than Lakers/Lebron tix.

Making the first stop even more dope, FLOTUS had media mogul Oprah, who made the memoir as her latest book club pick, on hand to delve deeper in front of an audience during an epic interview.

 photo BEC3.jpg

The two powerhouses chopped it up about life in the White House, Trump, motherhood while being First Lady and her relationship with President Barack Obama. However, there's one notable moment she forgot to add to the book that she shared with the audience and Lady O.

After boarding Marine One once the 2016 presidential inauguration was done, she broke down for half an hour.

"I didn't write about this in the book, because I had forgotten about it," she revealed. "When I got on the plane I think I sobbed for 30 minutes. And I think it was just the release of eight years of trying to do everything perfectly. I said to Barack, 'That was so hard. What we just did that was so hard and I've wanted to say that for eight years.' "

Aww! We can only imagine how she felt. A bittersweet moment for sure.  You know you're amazing when you make the impossible look easy.

 photo BEC2.jpg

"I saw sameness and that was the first time it struck me that this is going to be different," FLOTUS said of the people on the stage at Donald Trump's inauguration. "And then I listened to the speech and said 'This is going to be really different.' "

We all saw the pictures of Mrs. Obama during the inaguration and her face said it all. She was OVER it before it even started. She admitted she couldn't force herself to smile.

"Something in me. I couldn't do it," she said. "I'm usually better than that ... but it was hard."

Not mad.

 photo BEC1.jpg

On a lighter note, she also said that she joked about getting on the presidential plane after the inauguration, turning around and mouthing "Bye, Felicia." Ha!

"I didn't do it," she said, sparking a roar of laughter from the crowd.

Now THAT would have been hilarious.

 photo BEC4.jpg

Mrs. Obama's next tour stop will be at the L.A. Forum in Inglewood, California tomorrow November 15th.

Becoming is available in both print and digital formats. Oprah will air a primetime special, “Oprah Winfrey Presents: Becoming Michelle Obama," on November 15th at 8pm EST on OWN. Also, Forever FLOTUS is ELLE magazine's December 2018 cover girl. Get into her interview with Oprah HERE.

Dave Chappelle is acting up, photoboming engagement photos. Meanwhile, British manufacturer is tryna black our boo Idris Elba with this doll they created. Get it all inside...

Imagine you and BAE minding your business, serving up coupledom goals when someone photobombs your engagement photos! Not just anyone though. Imagine the comedy legend dropping in on your photoshoot.

One Ohio couple just copped the engagement photos of a lifetime after famed comedian Dave Chappelle hilariously photobombed their flicks!

 photo davephoto2.png

Tommy Saunders and Emily Eldridge were snapping it up at a brewery in Yellow Springs, Ohio when Dave popped up in the background. Jaycee Brammer, the owner of Jaycee Marie Photography, captured the images and shared the experience on her Facebook account. She said Dave, who lives in the area, was "so nice and truly made our day."

 photo davephoto3.png

Now, they're viral. Ha!

In other social media news...

 photo idrisdoll1.png

Sooo....British manufacturer Emperis is really trying TF out of it.  And by "it", we mean the entire human population as a unit.

British hottie Idris Elba was just named the world's Sexiest Man Alive by PEOPLE magazine. To celebrate, the toy manufacturer created an Idris Elba action figure. And it's far from cheap. It would set you back a cool 1100 pounds, but it's not even WORTH IT. The doll looks NOTHING like Idris. Not in the least bit.

Here's how the company described the doll on its website

Emperis Proudly presents one of Hollywood's most iconic actors Idris Elba. A special sculpted Idris likeness. An Emperis Homme standing 17 inches tall, he has a toned, masculine physique. He is made of the new resin which is lighter but stronger and gives a flesh like feel to the touch and has a smoothness of quality that you will love.

 photo idrisdoll2.png

Bruh, what is this?

As expected, Black Twitter is going off about the doll. L-O-L @ the Romany Malco foolery. Peep the tweets:

 

 

 

 

Romany even responded:

 

 

HA!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Zero chill.

Drool over the REAL (and engaged) Idris in his recent Sexiest Man Alive cover and spread below:

Zoe Kravitz Denies Kissing Lily Allen

Zoe Kravitz and Eddie Redmayne appeared on “Watch What Happens Live” this week to promote their amazing new movie “Fantastic Beasts 2: The Crimes Of Grindelwald” (we saw it two weeks ago — it’s INCREDIBLE). During the taping a woman called in to ask Zoe whether Lily Allen warned her that she would be writing about them kissing in her book and Zoe responded with “Who Is Lily Allen?” before adding “If by kissing she means like attacking, then yes, she kissed me….attacked me.” Wow… Sounds like Lily didn’t get consent. Watch the footage below:

What do you think about the way Zoe handled it? We love that she stood up for herself. And she’s probably right, a lot of people seem to have forgotten Lily Allen…

Toni Braxton Speaks On Marrying Birdman

Yes, Toni Braxton’s still engaged to Birdman, and no, there’s no wedding date. Toni was a guest on Wendy Williams this week and spoke on her Birdman baeship that while serious, still doesn’t have a solid date for nuptials.

According to Toni, Birdman who bought her a Tesla for her birthday, told her she HAS to set a date by the end of the year. The songstress added that while she two dates in mind, Braxton Family Values filming interrupted their plans.

“We almost had a date, well we had two dates, but we were doing “Braxton Family Values” and we were going through a little drama, and I was like, ‘Okay the wedding is a good thing to get all of us sisters together,’ but I couldn’t get us all together,” said Toni.”

Not only that, Toni’s skipping over her four sisters and claiming that her “best friend” Jada Pinkett Smith will be her maid of honor.

“None of them [will be my maid of honor], it’ll be my best friend, my girlfriend Jada!”

Uhhh, who knew Toni and Jada were besties??? That’s news to us….

She also talks her sister Tamar’s divorce and new man. Watch the full interview below.

The Show Has Also Been Beating Out ‘GMA’

Ever since Megyn Kelly left NBC’s Today show following her blackface comments, it seems things have been looking up for the network.

According to Variety, viewership for the 9 a.m. show by their key demographic is up around 10% since Kelly left. On top of all this, for the last three weeks, the overall audience for the first two hours of the NBC show has been larger than that of their rival — ABC’s Good Morning America. Experts are attributing the larger audience to recent tragedies such as the Pittsburgh shooting.

NBC canceled Megyn Kelly Today on October 26, just two days after she made comments diminishing the harm of blackface.  Despite Kelly’s show ending, sources say she is still negotiating terms with NBCUniversal for her departure.

It’s not certain whether NBC’s rating surge will hold or fall back to more average levels. GMA usually beats them out as the biggest morning-news audience overall, although Today usually takes the lead in the group that matters more — the viewers between 25 and 54 who advertisers favor for news programming.

In Kelly’s last week on air, Today captured 675,000 viewers between 25 and 54, according to Nielsen and approximately 2.52 million viewers overall. Last week, the third hour of Today gained 741,000 viewers between 25 and 54, and more than 2.63 million viewers overall, showing jumps of about 10% and 4%.

Since Kelly’s show was canceled, Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie have become co-hosts of the Today show. They are currently the only all-female morning anchor team on national broadcast TV. Many people seem to be all about their presence, considering Barbie just revealed them as the latest addition to their “Sheroes” collection. According to the company, their “sheroes” dolls represent women who “break boundaries to inspire the next generation.”

There’s no word if Megyn Kelly got the email to be apart of the “Sheroes” collection.

Chief Keef Is Catching A Huge Break After Felony DUI Charge

Chief Keef is a lucky man, and he’s proving exactly that by dodging another jail bid.

On Tuesday, TMZ reported that the Chicago rapper caught a serious break after his felony DUI charge, which he got when police pulled him over in his green Lamborghini driving through Miami. The DUI charge has been knocked down to a reckless driving charge after Keef pleaded no contest in the year-long legal battle.

Keef has now been sentenced to six months of probation, and he’s also been ordered to submit at least 50 hours of community service–which is obviously a huge improvement from being behind bars.

Even though Sosa got lucky in the case of avoiding a DUI charge, his legal trouble doesn’t quite stop there. Just last month, a Second Circuit Court judge in South Dakota denied a motion to dismiss a drug charge the rapper is still facing after his June 2017 arrest. In that particular instance, Keef was charged with marijuana possession of between two ounces and a half-pound along with possession of drug paraphernalia after Sioux Falls security reportedly found drugs in his carry-on bag.

For his Sioux Falls case, Chief Keef’s legal team argued that the THC-infused edibles he was carrying are not considered marijuana under South Dakota law, because they contained no plant material. Unfortunately for Keef, though, the judge didn’t quite buy the excuse.

Keef is absolutely no stranger to legal troubles, and the latest chapter of his never-ending legal saga comes just a couple of weeks after the release of the rapper’s Back From The Dead 3 mixtape. Hopefully for his fans, Keef will be able to stay clear of any trouble while touring and performing all of his new music around the world.

A State Senator Is Amongst Those Arrested

On Tuesday, 15 people were arrested during a protest at Georgia’s Capitol building in Atlanta, according to NBC News.

The protesters were demanding that the uncounted ballots from last week’s gubernatorial race be tallied. Democrat Stacey Abrams is going against Republican Brian Kemp for governor and the race is still too close to call. So far, Kemp holds a lead over Abrams of less than 58,000 votes as of Tuesday. Demonstrators on Tuesday were chanting to “count every vote,” according to law enforcement.

Georgia State Patrol told NBC News that the demonstrators were arrested for unlawfully disrupting “orderly conduct of official business” at the state capital building. Amongst the people arrested on Tuesday was Sen. Nikema Williams, who was additionally charged with misdemeanor obstruction of justice. State patrol said that the protestors were taken to the Fulton County Jail.

Williams spoke about her arrest to The Washington Post. She said she was apprehended “because I refused to leave the floor of this building where I’m a state senator.” She went on to say that the protest was peaceful. Protestors have set up a bail fund site for anyone who wants to donate to the cause.

The race between Abrams and Kemp comes a week after Election Day as Georgia officials continue to tally uncounted ballots in the race. Earlier Tuesday, a federal judge ordered Georgia to guard against the improper rejection of provisional ballots and to hold off until Friday to confirm the state’s election results.

Abrams is hoping to narrow Kemp’s lead so that a mandatory recount or a runoff can happen.

State law requires a candidate has more than 50 percent of the vote in order to win outright. Kemp currently has 50.3 percent of the overall vote. Meanwhile, Abrams has not conceded the race, despite pressure from Kemp who has already declared victory.

Cardi B Fans Upset At Cupcakke

Some Cardi B fans may have never heard of Cupcakke, but the rapper has gathered a niche following with millions of supporters with her next-level raunchy raps. She’s the type of performer to really warm up a room with her XXX content which is why she was probably asked to hit the stage at Cardi’s fashion line launch. The rapper, obviously on Belcalis’ radar, was asked to perform alongside a list of performers for Cardi B’s upcoming Fashion Nova launch party.

Unfortunately, Cupcakke revealed to fans she had to decline since she felt slighted by her performance time slot. Apparently, her set was cut short by the event organizers, with the minutes given to other performers. Not feeling it, Cupcakke pulled out.

This simple tweet from Cupcakke left dozens of folks angry that she “missed an opportunity” giving to her by Cardi B. Do you think these comments are fair or foul?

Hit the flip to see what else folks are saying to Cupcakke for passing on the Cardi B party.

Michelle Obama Talks About New Romance With Barack

“I…am so in love with you…” – Al Green (and Barack Obama at the Apollo)

We imagine there is a lot more singing, dancing, and long, loving stares in the Obama household these days as Michelle Obama reveals to PEOPLE that she and THE President are spending some much-needed quality time together now that their lives are much simpler.

“We are finding each other again,” Mrs. Obama says in an exclusive at-home interview with PEOPLE about her post-White House life and new memoir, Becoming, on sale now. “We have dinners alone and chunks of time where it’s just us — what we were when we started this thing: no kids, no publicity, no nothing. Just us and our dreams.”

We’re not crying, you are. Chelly O also reminisced over a romantic getaway to Palm Springs as it was “the first time in a long time it was just the two of us.”

“And it was good,” she said. “We swam, we sat, and he wrote because he’s still writing his book. So he’s a little resentful,” she added with a laugh.

While everything seems like it’s always been picture perfect in the Obama marriage, Michelle lets it be known that that is NOT the case whatsoever.

Man Sues 40/40 Club After Getting Hurt In Scuffle

A man by the name of Jose Irizarry has decided to sue after getting his azz beat at the 40/40 club. In the docs, obtained by TMZ, Irizarry blasts Jay-Z‘s NYC establishment for inadequate security and insufficient crowd control. We should note, however, Hov is not named in the suit.

TMZ reports:

“Irizarry claims he was minding his business at 40/40 when all of a sudden a huge fight broke out between some attendants and security … and he became collateral damage. Irizarry says he was struck in the head and body during the brawl, and endured pain and suffering, lost wages and medical expenses that he wants the club to cover.”

According to the site, this all went down the same night boxer Jermall Charlo got into an altercation and had a bag full of diamonds and jewelry stolen.

“Irizarry’s attorney told us he’s almost certain the fight his client was dragged into was the same one,” TMZ states.

At the time of the robbery, CBS Sports reported that over $40,000 cash was taken from Charlo, plus $115,000 in jewelry.

“According to police, Charlo (26-0, 20 KO) allegedly got into an argument which turned physical inside the Manhattan night club. When he returned to his seat, a bag consisting of a reported $155,000 in cash and jewelry was missing. In surveillance video obtained exclusively by CBS New York, five women were seen exiting the club around 3 a.m. ET, including a woman described as police as 5-foot-10 and white with long blonde hair who was in possession of the blue bag.”

It turns out the accused was asked to watch the bag temporarily and attempted to return the goods prior to police contacting her. Her name has since been cleared.

“His bodyguard handed her the bag and told her to run, according to her lawyer, Gerard Morrone. Even though the nurse tried to return the bag hours later, she was arrested,” The NY Post stated.

It seems while all of that was going down, Irizarry was in the middle of it all and accidentally got whooped. Stay tuned.
