Nicki Minaj has made the color pink her signature aesthetic ever since the beginning when she titled her debut album Pink Friday. As the years have went on, we’ve seen the hue pop up in future projects, including the 2012 follow-up Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded and her 2014 effort The Pinkprint. It even felt like the 2019 Met Gala was literally catered to Onika when she showed up in a pink gown (seen above) that perfectly matched the event’s pink carpet. Keeping up with old traditions, Nicki showed f a popping poolside look today when she touched down in Port Spain that was dripping in, you guessed it, pink hues galore. From the hair to the hat and all the way down to her, umm, pinstriped bodysuit and purse, Minaj proved that some old habits just simply die hard. No complaints over here!
Take a look at Nicki Minaj’s stunning “pretty in pink” look that she showed f on Instagram below:
Nicki Minaj insists that she’s only “pregnant with so many ideas for this album” after fans when crazy on an Instagram video showing her husband Kenneth Petty rubbing her stomach. Pregnancy rumours have been circulating about Nicki ever since she and Kenneth went public, and after they tied the knot last October, they’ve only increased. Last week, when Nicki indicated that she and Kenneth have “a lot to celebrate,” some thought she might be referring to having a baby on the way. This assumption was only reinforced when Nicki posted a video her and Kenneth on a plane to her home country Trinidad, in which she makes sure to get a shot Kenneth rubbing her stomach in the frame.

The comment section the post was flooded with fans asking once and for all if she was pregnant. It seemed inevitable, but Nicki has responded to various inquiring people that she is not, in fact, with child.
One user asked her straight up if she was pregnant or not, to which Nicki responded, “Why I feel like I’m about to get a beating? Y’all swear y’all my mother chile. I’m pregnant with so many ideas for this album. It’ll be my best.” When another fan asked why Kenneth keeps rubbing her stomach, she explained, “Babe u gotta ask him. He rubs my feet & my stomach. Ima tell him stop rubbing my stomach tho. Cuz chile…” Though these and other responses are likely Nicki’s way shutting down the pregnancy claims, it’s worth noting that she did not, technically, deny being pregnant. Still, if Mrs. Minaj-Petty does not wish to disclose her pregnancy status just yet, that is totally up to her.
Cardi B is being sued by a female security guard who claims she assaulted her, but Cardi says otherwise.
The woman, named Emani Ellis, filed suit against the rapper on Friday in Los Angeles County Superior Court. According to the lawsuit, Ellis was working in a Beverly Hills medical building on Feb. 24, 2018 when the incident occurred.
In the docs, obtained by TMZ, Ellis alleges Cardi struck her in the head, face, and body while Cardi was exiting the building. Ellis also claims Cardi spit on her and used profanities and racial slurs.
Cardi had just left a doctor’s appointment when the guard approached her trying to record video or take photos of her. Cardi, who had yet to reveal her pregnancy, asked her to stop because she didn’t want to be recorded. She would have been about four months pregnant with her daughter Kulture at the time.
That’s when the security guard became upset and an argument ensued. A building staffer reportedly tried to break up their fight, but claims things never got physical and there were no racial slurs.
Ellis alleges that Cardi “then used her celebrity status to get her fired from her job as a security guard.” However, a rep for the medical building says that Cardi’s doctor and patient coordinator were the ones who called for Ellis’ firing because they felt she had violated Cardi’s privacy.
Ellis is suing Cardi for assault, battery, and infliction of emotional distress.
UPDATE: Cardi has responded to the lawsuit by denying the assault claims.
Ms. Ciara is not letting anything stop her from twerking—not even her pregnancy. The singer took the stage at a New York Fashion Week event on Thursday, and took the opportunity to show f her knees steel and booty-shaking skills. During a mashup various songs like Lil Jon and the Ying Yang Twins‘ “Get Low” and Saweetie’s “My Type,” Ciara lined up with her backup dancers before breaking to take center stage. The soon-to-be mama three then turned around and started twerking as the medley transitioned into her 2004 hit “Goodies.”
Decked out in a black leather outfit, Ciara can still out-twerk most, even with a bun in the oven. This twerk sesh was not the first instance that Ciara has showed f her dance moves since announcing her pregnancy, however. The expectant mother shared a video last week herself going around to Roddy Ricch’s “The Box” at the Super Bowl.

She and husband, Russell Wilson, announced on January 30th that they were expecting another child. This will be their second child together, following the birth their daughter, Sienna Princess, in April 2017. Ciara also has a 5-year-old son, Future Zahir, with her ex-fiancé Future.
Safaree and Erica Mena have welcomed a new member into their family since their daughter was born sometime within the last 24 hours.

Hours later, the “Hunnid” rapper shared an image to his feed that sees his daughter holding onto his finger. “These pass 24 hrs have been an adventure to say the least!! I’m a part the #girldad club now 🙏🏾. Perfection is here ❤️,” he captioned the image. “I’m nervous. I’m in shock. I’m in disbelief. It’s very surreal to me. I don’t know what to do but I know I’m going to be great at what I do because I’m great at everything,” Safaree said when he and Erica first announced they were expecting.
As for Safaree’s one regret following the birth his child, he admitted it has to do with past images. “Having a daughter, I would hope that she wouldn’t go Google my name one day and see a picture my meat hanging out,” he said. “So if there was something I could take back – I didn’t do it though!”
Nikki Bella has expressed her want to start her own family from when she was formerly with John Cena. Their breakup had something to do with the fact that John didn’t want to have children but attempted to change his mind for Nikki. In the end, things just didn’t work out and John went on to date engineer Shay Shariatzadeh while Nikki is engaged to Artem Chigvintsev.

“It was] a total surprise,” said Nikki Bella to People. “It took even me a good week to come to terms with like, ‘Oh my gosh, I’m pregnant.’ I’m not ready for it.” Bella recently got engaged to Artem Chigvintsev following her dramatic break-up with wrestler John Cena.

Congratulations are in order for A-Boogie Wit Da Hoodie and his girlfriend Ella Rodriguez, as they appear to be expecting their second child. The two them are currently on a tropical vacation together to celebrate Ella’s birthday. Ella, who is a social media influencer known as Ella Bands, turned 25 years old on Thursday, and it looks like she’ll be welcoming a little bundle joy before her next birthday. Boogie posted a video on his IG story, showing f the beautiful resort where he and his lady are staying. At one point, Boogie pans over to Ella inside fixing her hair, and there’s no denying that she is definitely a few months along.
The couple, who welcomed their first child together, Melody Valentine Dubose, in 2017, have yet to ficially announce Ella’s pregnancy. They appear to have gotten back together at some point since last March, when some drama went down after Boogie claimed that Ella was preventing him from seeing Melody. Ella responded with, “It’s not my fault u wait till I catch u cheating to finally let us go come on tour and now it’s just bring Melody knowing I don’t wanna come anymore.” Boogie eventually begged for forgiveness, which seems to have ultimately worked out in his favour.
