Wendy Williams & Her Son Kevin Hunter Jr Escape To Chicago After His Arrest

Yesterday, there was some major drama between Wendy Williams, her estranged husband and their son. Wendy recently found out that her husband over two decades had been cheating on her for half their relationship, getting his mistress pregnant this year. She dumped him and filed for divorce but things took a wild turn when Kevin Hunter Jr, the couple’s son, was arrested for clocking his father in the nose. It was reported that Hunter and Hunter Jr. had gotten into a physical altercation in a parking lot after Hunter claimed Wendy has been trying to “brainwash” him. The younger Kevin seemingly took his mother’s side and he was arrested when the police were called. He was released from police custody shortly after and he and Wendy jetted f to Chicago yesterday for a Sweets and Snacks Expo, according to Page Six.

Wendy and Kevin Jr. went to Chicago just hours after he was arrested for allegedly assaulting his father. Kevin Jr. reportedly did not participate in any the events but his mother was actively promoting Candy Pop, a brand that used to sponsor the now-non-existent Hunter Foundation. Wendy didn’t show any sign distress. She was there for business and she kept her composure the entire time.

With all the drama unfolding within her own household, it will be interesting to see how Wendy reacts to this mess on her show.

Mayor Pete Buttigieg Publicly Supports Colin Kapaernick And NFL Kneelers

The unprecedented backlash that ex-NFL player, Colin Kaepernick, continues to receive for his political stance back in 2016 is pretty insane, with an incident happening just last month whereby a Twitter user took to the platform to share a picture a Kaepernick doll being hung by its neck and dragged by the back a pickup truck in San Jose, California. As well as, a recent incident where Teen Moms 2‘s Jenelle Evans stormed out following being called out for fensive tweets she made towards Kapaernick in the past.

So it’s pretty refreshing to see someone stand up for the activist, especially when it’s political figure, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, the one doing so. Buttigieg told TMZ Sports that he supports the QB’s right to take a knee during the national anthem, and he’s ripping Trump apart for going after the protesters. “The way I feel about it is the flag that was on my shoulder when I served represented, among other things, our right to free speech,” Mayor Pete (a Navy veteran) said in his statement.

“You don’t have to like it, but one the reasons we serve was to defend that right, the right peaceful protest and the idea that we can protest what is wrong with our country.” That’s when Pete proceeded to take a hit at the president – who has publicly called for the NFL to fire any “son a b*tch” who doesn’t stand for the anthem. “If the president had served,” Pete said, “maybe he’d feel a little more strongly about some those freedoms. And, I get that there’s a lot strong opinions about this, but that’s part why we served.”

Mayor Pete made his first public remark about the situation back in 2017, tweeting: “I was trained to stand & salute. But freedom — including to protest injustice — is the whole point the anthem, the flag, and the country.”

Cardi B Files Trademark for ‘Bocktails’ TV Show

Cardi B is looking to expand her empire into television.

The “Money” rapper has filed a trademark for a television and Internet-based show called “Bocktails with Cardi B” (a play on cocktails). According to trademark documents, obtained by TMZ, Cardi’s application encompasses “entertainment services in the nature of providing ongoing episodes for distribution television and the Internet featuring celebrities and artists.”

In addition to the show, Cardi is looking to trademark the “Bocktails” name on clothing, including T-shirts, sweatshirts, hats, caps, footwear, skirts, pants, and shorts. Additionally, she plans to use the name for “alcoholic beverages, except beer and beverages containing beer.”

Earlier this year, the Grammy winner filed paperwork to trademark her signature catchphrase “Okurrr” to be used for paper goods and clothing.

Blake Griffin Dog Attack Victim Files Motion To Dismiss Lawsuit: Report

Blake Griffin was in the midst being sued back in February after an alleged incident in June where his dog attacked a 64-year-old man who was eating at A Votre Sante in Los Angeles. Emmanuel Aframian claims that he was eating and minding his own business when all a sudden, the dog lunged at him in a vicious attack. During the time the lawsuit, Aframian said that he had endured “disabling and permanent” all while claiming that the dog had a past being violent towards people.

According to The Blast, Aframian filed a request to have his lawsuit against the Detroit Pistons star dismissed. It’s an interesting development considering Aframian appeared to be adamant about his charges in February. As right now, it’s unclear as to whether or not Griffin settled with Aframian out court. If they did, that is certainly the reason why this lawsuit would be dismissed so suddenly.

Griffin has been keeping a low prile since being swept from the playfs against the Milwaukee Bucks. The Pistons big man was recently asked about future NBA draft pick Zion Williamson, where he explained how the Duke star could be one the best dunkers to ever play the game.

Kendall Jenner & Ben Simmons Break Up: "I Don’t Love You Anymore"

This news will be a delight to many fans the Philadelphia 76ers. Although Kendall Jenner was once referred to as an actual good luck charm for Ben Simmons on the court, fans seemed to believe that she was distracting the hooper, spending too much time with him in the fseason when he should be hitting the gym. Of course, the man should be allowed to enjoy a healthy work/life balance and if Kendall can be part that, nobody should be complaining. However, after a couple cryptic posts, several sources are stating that the couple has ficially broken up.

A few days ago, Kendall Jenner said that she could see herself “one day” marrying the star basketball player. Only hours had passed after that story was published when reports started to circulate that the two sides had called it quits. Kendall reportedly fueled the fire even further by posting clips herself listening to the new Tyler, The Creator song “I Don’t Love You Anymore,” and while that definitely seems a little “reach-y” if you ask me, all signs are pointing to Ben and Kendall no longer calling each other boyfriend and girlfriend.

Some sources are saying that the duo is done for good while others simply say that they’re “on a break.” All we know is that they’re not together for the time being. Do you think Simmons will strive without his supermodel girlfriend next season?

Chamillionaire & E-40 Are Looking To Invest $25K In Startup Company

Rapper and businessman Chamillionaire is running his second contest the year where he’s giving away money. Well, technically he’s investing in a business and he made the announcement on Instagram Wednesday evening. Back in February, during Black History Month, Chamillionaire ran a contest where he invested $10,000 in a black founder’s company. There were so many applicants than that time around he wants to give someone else the opportunity to win financial backing as well. However, he made a few slight changes.

“We gon’ keep that same energy and I’mma do it again, but this time I’m gonna invest in a minority or woman founded startup since those companies are still so underrepresented in this base,” he said in the video. “And one my portfolio companies is a platform called Republic which helps non-accredited people invest in startups. They’re gonna help me judge this contest since I had so many entries in my last one.”

The video then shows a FaceTime screen with rapper E-40 who says that he wants to partner with Chamillionaire. “This time I wanna join you and Republic, man. Let’s put $25,000 together and give it to the best company. Let’s invest in the best company. Let’s go.” Chamillionaire then explains how applicants can enter his contest, so if you’re looking for an investor in your business, check out the video below.

Drake Casually Responds To Reports That His Courtside Antics Are "Disrespectful"

There has been much chatter about Drake‘s sideline antics during the NBA’s Eastern Conference Finals. Drake reps for his Toronto Raptors team hard, especially as their Global Ambassador, but his behavior while courtside has warranted harsh responses from the Milwaukee Bucks’ head coach Mike Budenholzer and the Bucks’ forward Giannis Antetokounmpo’s representative Georgios Dimitropoulos. The two men separately ripped the rapper for his “disrespectful” behavior.

“I don’t know any person attending the game that isn’t a player or coach that has access to the court,” Budenholzer said. “I don’t know how much he’s on the court. It sounds like you guys are saying a lot…There’s certainly no place for fans—or whatever exactly is what Drake is for the Raptors—on the court. There’s boundaries and lines for a reason. The league is pretty good about that.”

Budenholzer’s comment came shortly after Sports Illustrated reported that Dimitropoulous wrote, “Imagine a gig & an athlete on VIP seats, right next to the band, stands up on the stage just to show f during the entire game, knowing cameras are on him, occasionally even massaging the singer. Security&him both allow it. Never seen anything as disrespectful as this before…”

Drizzy couldn’t care less what critics think his actions because he took to Instagram to post a series photos himself at the game with the caption, “😂🧂🤷🏽‍♂️.” It looks as if he’s using emojis to convey that he finds it amusing that they’re salty, but he doesn’t really care. The rapper also liked a comment that reads, “Sports media needs to accept the simple rule the Miami Hurricanes signed into law back in the 80s: if you don’t want the opposing team to celebrate and dance, prevent them from scoring, winning, or achieving their objective. Get over it and keep it moving.”

The Raptors-Bucks series is tied at two and will resume tomorrow for Game 5 in Milwaukee at the Fiserv Forum.

Patrick Beverley Reacts To Being Left Off NBA All-Defensive Teams

Today, the NBA unveiled the ten players that make up its NBA all-defensive teams. The all-defensive first team includes Giannis Antetokounmpo, Eric Bledsoe, Rudy Gobert, Paul George, and Marcus Smart. Meanwhile, the second team has Jrue Holiday, Klay Thompson, Joel Embiid, Draymond Green, and Kawhi Leonard. While all these players are deserving, there has already been quite a bit debate surrounding those who were snubbed from the list. One the players many people thought deserved a spot was Los Angeles Clippers player Patrick Beverley.

Beverley was an absolute terror while defending Kevin Durant in the first round the playfs as the two were embroiled in a pretty intense beef throughout that six-game series. With Beverley’s staunch defense, it was expected that he would at least make it onto the NBA all-defensive second team list but clearly, that wasn’t in the cards.

The Clippers player took to Twitter today where he simply said: “Lol that’s funny!!!” after the list had dropped. Three simple words but they conveyed his thoughts perfectly. It’s obvious the Clippers star knows his worth and felt he was absolutely deserving the honor.

Do you think Beverley should have made it and if not, was the current list good or does it need an update? Let us know.

Kacy Hill Has Left Kanye West’s G.O.O.D Music Label

Kacy Hill is one the more recent names that was acquired by G.O.O.D Music in an attempt to take over the entire music industry. Last year, they just about did that, releasing new albums over the span five weeks and dominating our playlists. One artist that was missing from the push though was Kacy. After she was touted as one the most talented up-and-coming stars, she seemingly became an after-thought to the G.O.O.D Music executives, which is a story that’s become all too familiar at this point. According to OnSmash, Kacy Hill has ficially announced her departure from the label, stating that there’s no bad blood between her and anybody over there.

“I left GOOD btw,” she reportedly wrote in a since-deleted tweet. “No bad feelings + I’m thankful for everything but it’s what I needed to do for this new music.” Last year, we did not receive much new music from Kacy Hill and now that she’s told the world that her album is complete, we’re hoping she can wow us again with her unbelievable charm.

This isn’t the first time somebody has been upset with how their career was handled by G.O.O.D Music. The label has become notorious for seemingly forgetting about artists. Think somebody like Desiigner. The man had so much potential and where is he now? The same thing happened to Kacy Hill and now, she’s standing up for herself and doing things on her own agenda.

The trailer for the new season (which you can check out below) sees the stars singing along to the show’s famous, catchy theme song “You’ve Got Time,” with a message outlining the release date as July 26. 

Nike Cancels "Puerto Rico" Air Force 1 Following Intense Backlash

Last week, we reported on the Nike Air Force 1 Low “Puerto Rico” which was set to release in June. Immediately after Nike announced the shoe, the internet erupted in outrage and for good reason. It was pointed out by many in the Puerto Rican and Panamanian communities that the graphics on the side the shoe was actually a “Mola” which is an art form in Panama and not Puerto Rico. A petition was launched to cancel the shoe, while avid sneakerhead DJ Clark Kent took to Instagram to educate people on what a “Mola” is.

This is called a “Mola” It is a Panamanian art form,” DJ Clark Kent explained. “You can find it anywhere in my home country, PANAMA. Respectfully, This is not a part Puerto Rico’s rich culture. Though we are both Spanish speaking people, we have different traditions, art & cultural expressions. When celebrating one, please do proper research. These things should not be confused.”

In the aftermath these criticisms, Nike has ficially canceled the launch the shoe. A spokesperson for the company spoke to Sole Collector, saying “We apologize for the inaccurate representation the design origin for the Nike Air Force 1 ‘Puerto Rico’ 2019. As a result, this product will no longer be available.”

Once again, the power the internet reigns supreme.

Yung Miami & Joseline Hernandez Threaten Each Other On IG Over Hazel-E Diss Track

Tuesday evening was a cluster drama on Instagram between City Girls rapper Yung Miami as she battled against Hazel-E and Joseline Hernandez. Hazel has previously accused City Girls sampling her 2017 track “Actin Up” and using it for their hit 2018 song “Act Up” without permission or credit. Yung Miami has defended her single, asserting that no one affiliated with the production “Act Up” took anything from Hazel. The two engaged in a brief social media spat, but Hazel wasn’t finished. It seems that the Love & Hip Hop Hollywood star is looking to capitalize f the moment by dropping a diss track titled “Add It Up.” In it, Hazel targets City Girls, Quality Control Music, and Lil Yachty who helped pen “Act Up.”

Hazel talks about everyone under the sun on her scathing record, including family members her targets. Yung Miami issued a warning after hearing the song, writing “Just know when I see you sir I’m beating your ass on sight for speaking on my mom and my son you lame ass hoe!” Hazel’s friend, former Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star Joseline Hernandez, showed support for Hazel in her comments, so Joseline became Yung Miami’s second target.

Joseline hopped on camera to give Hazel-E a shout out and to tell Yung Miami that she’s about that life. Things were already messy, but the ladies just go back and forth, video for video, as the City Girls rapper continuously asks Joseline to meet up.

“Ian bout to play with no mans on coke y’all hoes want attention now y’all got it!,” Yung Miami wrote in a post. “On my son I will beat either one you hoes to death just cause b*tches throw drinks and pull hair cross tables on TV don’t do sh*t to me! I’m from Miami I don’t see none that commercial sh*t joseline you on coke bad you get high eat p*ssy for fun who respects you hoe? Hazel you wish you were signed to QC nobody know you or your music… what checks you signing you delusional ass b*tch you was crying for berg to help with your career you clown ass b*tch.”

Like many other internet beefs that exist, nothing came this one. We’re hoping that they can keep it on wax and realize that throwing hands over this just isn’t that serious.
