When Dave Thomas opened the first Wendy’s in 1969, what kind of music do you think he was listening to? Thomas remained head of the international fast food chain until has passed away in 2002. That means he witnessed the birth of hip-hop, and was even around to watch the domination of Biggie Smalls. It is also possible that Biggie Smalls ate a Wendy’s burger or two during his time on this Earth. Whether or not the restaurant and Biggie crossed paths in the past is up for speculation. Wendy’s latest tweet does draw heavy influence from the rapper’s classic Ready to Die album though.
On Wednesday (March 21), Wendys took to Twitter to post a promotion for a mixtape the company seems to be dropping tomorrow. The tweet features a picture of a single square burger patty placed on a white background. The words “Webeefin?” are sprawled across the bottom in the same stylization and font from Ready to Die’s cover. The first word is in a black bold text, the second is regular, and the “in” is painted with red ink. The caption for the tweet reads “Fresh, never frozen beats. 3.23.18”
One producer tweeted the restaurant in an attempt to get his beats on the project. “Yo lemme send some beats for the tape fam 🔥🤙🏼,” tweeted @beatsbyaustxn. “It comes out Friday, it’s already done. Sorry,” replied Wendys. “Dropping it on iTunes tho?,” asks the same Twitter user. “Yes,” responds Wendys.

Blac Chyna seems unfazed by her boyfriend’s inclusion in a song mocking her fellatio game.
Yesterday, YBN Almighty Jay and Rich Forever labelmate Rich The Kid teamed up to drop their single “Back Quick,” a decent offering from both sides showcasing their respective strengths. The track references Blac Chyna’s infamous sex tape from earlier this year, which had many confused by her lack of sexual prowess. Many clowned Chyna on social media for her seemingly below-average fellatio game, which has now made its way into a rapper’s lyrics, which was to be expected if we’re being honest. However, the surprising part about the situation is that Chyna’s current boyfriend YBN Almighty Jay is on said track.
YBN, who claims he met Blac Chyna on Christian Mingle, has a new single featuring Rich The Kid, in which Rich raps, “The pu–y was worse than Chyna head.” In a teaser clip of the track on Instagram, Jay appeared hyped by the lyrics about his girlfriend’s subpar skills in bed. Chyna either did not hear the song yet or she is completely unfazed by it as she was seen stepping out with Jay, posting a photo of the two walking out of Saks Fifth Avenue together. Chyna has disabled the commenting feature on many of her Instagram posts so the fan reaction is unclear.
YBN Almighty Jay posted a video of himself seemingly “pulling up” on Rich The Kid just a day after the song was released so the status of the Rich Forever teammates is cloudy for the moment. One thing is for sure, many people are starting to take notice of Jay’s music because of his affiliation with Blac Chyna.
Take a listen to the song at www.itsKenBarbie.com OR SWIPE TO HEAR, the Chyna reference is at the 1:47 mark if you listen to the full song. #blaccchyna#blac#chyna#blacchynaworld#ybnalmightyjay#richthekid#newfreezer#newfreezerchallenge#robandchyna#robkardashian#dreamkardashian#angelawhite#angelakardashian#kardashians#kardashian#keepingupwiththekardashians#entertainment#entertainmentblog#gossip#celebrities#celebrityblogger#kenbarbie#itskenbarbie
The Game’s been making a lot of headlines as of late. Whether it be his beef with Tekashi 6ix9ine or his legal issues. He’s currently been on tour in Europe over the course of March where he’s been embarking on the “45” tour. However, it looks like one of his concerts became a flop after he failed to show up to perform.
According to GazetteLive, The Game didn’t show up to his concert at Teesside University after he allegedly got paid £16K to perform. The concert promoter said that he met up with The Game prior to the show to settle the rest of his performance fee but the rapper didn’t hold his end of the bargain. “We have no idea why he didn’t turn up,” the promoter, Junior Masandi said, “He had requested full payment for the show, which we would normally hold off from doing until around an hour before the show. But on this occasion we paid him three hours before. We believed everything was in hand and that he was happy with everything.” The rapper was already sent £8,350 for the performance beforehand and received the remaining £8,150 once they met up.
Masandi admitted that he had an “overwhelming feeling of heartbreak” once he announced the rapper’s no-show to those that anticipated the rapper’s set. However, Masandi said that he’s planning on finding out more once he speaks to his legal team.
Despite the no-show, The Game already arrived to his next tour date in Dublin where he’s supposed to perform for a sold-out crowd. We’ll let you know what happens.

Teyana Taylor & Iman Shumpert are officially in parenthood.
Teyana Taylor and her husband Iman Shumpert are just days away from their reality show premiere of Teyana & Iman. Chatting with Page Six before the series airs on March 26th on VH1, the 27-year-old explains why she and her beau no longer have sex every day like they used to.
Speaking of a shower scene that viewers will see in the show, Teyana says it was “the closest” that Iman and she got that night. “When we got home, Junie was c–k-blocking, she did not let us do anything,” she says of their two-year-old daughter. “Do not let the shower scenes fool you! Don’t get it twisted — when we get it in, we get it in good — but when Junie is around, we can kiss that goodbye.” She even explains how Junie has to sleep with them. “Junie falls asleep on my head. Even if Iman kisses me, she will move my face and kiss him, then she will bring me and his head together and we will do a three-way kiss — she has to be involved.” The actress/rapper – who has a Kanye West produced project on the way – says that this is just all a part of being a parent. “Pre-Junie sex was every day. Post-Junie, Mama is tired. I would be down, Mama and Papa had to go to work. Junie did not want to go to sleep, and one thing I will not do is make love in front of my baby,” she says. “Junie has a room, but she likes to sleep with us. Now we have to plan it out. That is just parenthood. We can’t complain.” Get the FULL story at www.itsKenBarbie.com #teyanaandiman#teyana#iman#teyanataylor#imanshumpert#vh1#juniebnails#cockblock#cockblocking#parenthood#entertainment#entertainmentblogger#gossip#celebrities#celebrityblogger#kenbarbie#itskenbarbie
Gucci is partnering with Beyonce in an effort to provide clean drinking water to Burundians.
Beyonce’s BeyGOOD platform is an initiative started by the songstress in the hopes of implementing social change through the lives of women, globally. If you didn’t know, March happens to be ‘Women’s History Month,’ where the onus is on retracing developments in social history through the eyes and acting words of women. To honor such occasion, luxury brand Gucci has pledged $1 Million to help with the coordination of massive human aide project tabled by Beyonce and her team of philanthropists.
Beyonce unveiled plans for the BeyGOOD 4 Burundi, in July of last year. The nation of Burundi is currently plagued by a shortage of clean drinking water, nearly half the nation have no access whatsoever. The initiative hopes to also teach basic hygienic practices in a effort to curb disease and malnutrition in the East African country. As of this writing, the foundation has already built 35 wells in the country alone. Gucci’s donation comes in the way of their CHIME FOR CHANGE initiative, founded in 2013 as a treatise meant to “convene, unite and strengthen the voices speaking out for girls and women around the world.” You can read about the campaign in the FULL story at www.itsKenBarbie.com including an easy-to-read description of the situation in Burundi, as well as a sign-up brochure, and a link for public donations. #beyoncé#beysus#beygood#beyhive#queenbey#beyonce#beyoncè#bey#gucci#entertainment#entertainmentblog#gossip#celebrities#celebrityblogger#kenbarbie#itskenbarbie
This isn’t going to help Bobby V’s already tainted image.
Bobby V hasn’t had the best reputation or image after he was caught allegedly skipping out on a transgender prostitute last year without paying her, which he claimed was an extortion plot, but this story here definitely isn’t going to help. According to TMZ, the R&B singer is a suspect in a rape case that allegedly happened last weekend in Georgia.
Police sources say the R&B singer was named by a woman who filed a police report in Cobb County, Georgia early Monday, March 19. They’re told the alleged rape occurred the day prior on Sunday (3/18). Little information is known about the incident, like where or what the circumstances were, but we do know Bobby does lives in the area. Cops say they have an open investigation into the case, so they’re not saying anything & keeping details under wraps for now.
However, there’s always two sides to every story and Bobby V’s reps are not only calling bullshit, but they’re also taking legal action “against what appears to be a weak yet calculated attempt to obtain financial gain through ulterior motives in the matter.” The rep says the victim didn’t directly ask for money from Bobby V, but everything she said is a lie. The rep reportedly added, “Bobby takes any allegation against women very seriously. However, false allegations damage true victims of sexual abuse.” This report surfaces just a couple weeks after Bobby released his Electrik album, featuring Snoop Dogg.
We’ll keep you posted as more information on this story surfaces. Keep up at www.itsKenBarbie.com #bobby#valentino#bobbyv#metoo#entertainment#slowdown#entertainmentblog#gossip#gossipblog#celebrities#celebrityblogger#kenbarbie#itskenbarbie
Trey Songz has more women claiming assault.
A couple days ago Trey Songz reportedly turned himself in for physical assault against Andrea Buera that took place during the NBA All-Star Weekend in February. Prior to turning himself over to the LAPD, he tweeted that he was being “lied on” and “this too shall pass.” “We are delighted at the news that Trey Songz has been arrested for felony domestic assault,” Andrea’s lawyer Lisa Bloom said. “Andrea will fully cooperate with the investigation and is ready, willing, and able to testify at trial, should that be necessary.” Trey was later released on a $50,000 bail.
New reports via The Blast say that since Lisa and Andrea held the press conference speaking on Trey, two other women (whose names remain confidential at this time) have come forward with credible stories to pin against the singer. Their accusations against Trey have yet to be revealed but as past cases have gone with Lisa as an attorney, it’s only a matter of time until these women get some victory.
As we previously posted, Andrea claims Trey brutally attacked her at a Hollywood Hills party after she started talking to on of his friends. Do you think there’s truth to the claims?

Blac Chyna has to be used to being in the news at this point. The model has made headlines for the leak of her sex tape last month as well as for her new relationship with YBN Almighty Jay, who is notably younger than her. Jay recently did an interview with the folks at No Jumper touching on a number of different subjects from his upbringing to his taste in females, which led to him discussing his fresh “taken” status courtesy of Blac Chyna.
Being 18 years old, you can’t expect Jay to have the type of couth one would expect in a relationship with someone who is Chyna’s age (29). During the interview, when the subject of he and Chyna’s sex life came up, Jay immediately began to share he and Chyna’s most…intimate details.
When asked if the two practice safe sex he responded “Hell No, I don’t wear condoms. I’m all the way in raw. I don’t wear rubbers? Who does that?” Naturally with such a revelation, the interviewer then asked the young rapper what he would do if he managed to get Chyna pregnant, to which he stated he would keep the child, and love it. So maybe there’s about an ounce of common sense in there.
Check out the video of YBN’s statements at www.itsKenBarbie.com . I believe it’s well documented that I’m not necessarily the biggest fan of Blac Chyna…but GIRL, you know better. RUN. #blaccchyna#blac#chyna#ybnalmightyjay#blacchynaworld#robandchyna#robkardashian#dreamkardashian#angelawhite#tokyotoni#angelakardashian#kardashians#kardashian#keepingupwiththekardashians#entertainment#entertainmentblog#gossip#celebrities#celebrityblogger#kenbarbie#itskenbarbie
A Chinese company has maneuvered their way to trademarking the name “Yeezy” last year behind Kanye’s back.
It looks like Kanye West might have to fight for the right to use the “Yeezy” nickname. According to a report from TMZ, a Chinese company apparently came out of nowhere and swindled their way behind Kanye’s back last year and filed trademark paperwork in an effort to use the popular Yeezy brand name.
Kanye’s company has owned the Yeezy name for footwear since 2013, but for whatever reason abandoned the trademark for other clothing items besides shoes in 2017. The Chinese company, Fujian Baby Network Technology Co., reportedly seized the opportunity by immediately filing trademark paperwork for the term “Yeezy Boost” for its clothing products.
The media outlet says Kanye’s company then refiled its application for Yeezy clothing, but the trademark office said not so fast because the Chinese company now had the rights to it.
Kanye shouldn’t have to worry about this trademark issue affecting future Yeezy sneakers, but if he wants to expand business and start making other clothing items with the name “Yeezy” on it he might be in for a legal battle.
This report comes in the midst of Kanye working on his next album in Wyoming. If you missed it, the likes of Drake, Lil Uzi, Nas, Kid Cudi, Travis and more have all been out there in the past weeks to help him.
We’ll continue to keep you posted moving forward.

Queen Latifah has lost the “love” of her life. The rap legend’s mother, Rita Owens, died on Wednesday (March 21), Latifah announced in a heartbreaking statement to the folks over at People magazine. “It is with a heavy heart that I share the news my mother, Rita Owens, passed away today,” she revealed. “Anyone that has ever met her know what a bright light she was on earth. She was gentle, but strong, sweet, but sassy, worldly, but pragmatic, a woman of great faith and certainly the love of my life.” Owens had struggled with a heart condition “for many years,” as Latifah noted in the statement. “Her battle is now over,” she wrote. “I am heartbroken but know she is at peace. Thank you for your kindness, support and respect for our privacy at this time.” Owens was an almost constant companion of her daughter’s throughout her career, and appeared in Living Single, as Latifah’s character (Khadijah James’) mother.
Owens was diagnosed with heart failure in 2004 after passing out at work and being rushed to the hospital. The diagnoses prompted Latifah and her mother to join forces with the American Heart Association to help educate people on heart disease, which remains the number one killer of women across the globe, and affects black women at a growing rate. According to the American Heart Association, cardiovascular disease kills more than 50,000 black women per year. Get more information at www.itsKenBarbie.com
Our sincere condolences go out to Queen and her family at this time. #queen#latifah#queenlatifah#danaowens#ritaowens#livingsingle#prayersup#entertainment#entertainmentblog#gossip#celebrities#celebrityblogger#kenbarbie#itskenbarbie
Every family has their drama as we’ve learned publicly with the Kardashians and many other famous families. The latest string of negative family happenings comes by way of Ray J since his wife is feuding with his sister, Brandy.
As we reported yesterday, the feud started a few weekends ago when Princess Love (who is pregnant with Ray’s child) tweeted a cryptic message about cheating and not staying with someone just because a baby is on the way. Brandy and her mother took the tweet as a diss to Ray and told her to apologize.
Princess got pissed and told them to stay out of their relationship. The drama blew up so big that Brandy and her mother didn’t attend Ray and Princess’s baby shower this past weekend.
Never one to have much public scandal, Brandy quickly tried to clean it up and keep her family’s secrets, however, Princess wasn’t having it. Brandy posted an Instagram message that pretty much suggested everything was all good with the family, congratulating and expressing her love for the couple, however Princess almost immediately called her out on it commenting “STFU posting this, I should post what you just texted me.” Take a look in the FULL story at www.itsKenBarbie.com
Princess might want to slow her role, even if she is right. None of this needs to be played out on social media. Besides, Brandy is all types of legend to me, you can’t threaten to expose BRANDY…THAT’S BRANDY!

Jacquees is one of the most promising young voices in R&B right now. He’s been teasing some new music including his debut album 4275 which has yet to get a release date. However, the singer has a lot in store for his fans. Unfortunately, the rapper faced some issues earlier today. Footage of his arrest in South Beach surfaced without much context to it. However, new reports have surfaced that explained what happened.
Jacquees was arrested earlier today in South Beach for allegedly driving without a seatbelt and failing to obey a lawful demand, TMZ reports. The singer was stopped by a Miami Beach officer while he was driving down Ocean Drive earlier today. According to police, the “B.E.D” crooner was pulled over for driving without a license and when asked to show his driver’s license, Jacquees refused. The officer then told him to exit the vehicle, which Jacquees did, but he apparently refused to walk with the officer to the sidewalk. The police allege that Jacquees yelled, “Do not touch me.” By the time this occured, Jacquees drew a large crowd of people who were on spring break which prompted the police officer to call more officers to the scene. The singer was ultimately cuffed and taken to the police station on two misdemeanors: failure to obey a lawful command and a seat belt infraction.

As expected, when Beyoncé and Jay-Z were spotted filming video footage in Jamaica yesterday, residents turned out in numbers. The duo, accompanied by an entourage that included local police, arrived in the area at noon on March 20. They shot scenes along Collie Smith Drive and Fifth Street, where Bob Marley once lived.
However, according to one local resident, things weren’t has peaceful and inviting as they may have seemed. A woman in Trenchtown, Jamaica is claiming she was forced out of her home, and then arrested for refusing to hand over her footage of Beyoncé and Jay during their visit. The woman tweeted the following: “Oh wow Beyoncé went to Jamaica and paid the police to stop people from taking pictures and videos of her. The police are entering homes and confiscating property. Beyoncé is going too far this time! #BoycottBeyoncé#BeyoncéInJamaica” “The officers said they saw me take 360 photos and said if we didn’t let them in they can breach the premises. They threaten us saying they had snipers. Like really now?? I wanted to laugh but couldn’t.” Take a look at both tweets at www.itsKenBarbie.com or SWIPE..At the time of this article, Bey and Jay’s reps have not spoken out in regards to the accusations. What do you guys think? Is that a little much? Or do you think the woman’s claims are bullshit? The snipers part is what made us think it sounded extreme 😅#beyoncé#beyonce#beyoncè#jayz#hov#beyonceandjayz#beyhive#queenbey#beysus#ontherun#ontheruntour#otrii#entertainment#entertainmentblog#gossip#celebrities#celebrityblogger#kenbarbie#itskenbarbie
Social media can often have people wondering why they signed up for the service in the first place. While the communal benefits are clear, there is an abundance of negativity floating around that is bound to catch up to you. When you’re in the public eye, the hostility is heavily amplified as celebrities often choose to neglect their comment sections due to all the hate. Cardi B recently spoke out about her own struggles with negativity online, explaining the reason why she took a break from Twitter.
The “Bodak Yellow” rapper wrote that her month-long Twitter hiatus was prompted by the hate in her mentions, saying, “[The] reason why I took a break from twitter is cause people are so negative and disgusting here.” Although she has been embraced by a mainstream audience, hardcore rap fans have yet to be impressed by her musical efforts. On top of that, Cardi gets a lot of hate simply for being a woman in rap, which has not been fully accepted to this date by fans in the hip-hop community. The hitmaker continued, “I had to log off, to [sic] much negativity is not good for the soul.” Bardi is back on the medium, reminding her supporters of how hard she is working on her debut album, as well as expressing her displeasure of being so far away from New York. In a separate tweet, Cardi reminded people that while she may consistently get knocked down, she will continue to rise above hate.

Wendy Williams is back after her three-week health hiatus and nothing has changed in regards to her mouth. The talk show host shockingly dissed her supposed friend, Tamar Braxton, during her “Hot Topics” segment which sent many oohs and ahh’s throughout her packed audience. Wendy slammed Tamar after the singer shaved her head on March 15. While many guessed that Tamar’s new do’ was due to her emotional split with husband, Vincent Herbert, Wendy didn’t think that was the case. “Tamar wants attention… No, in my mind, Tamar is a classic case of someone who will do anything for attention, anything for attention,” Wendy said. Tamar took to Instagram to document her drastic transformation. She posted a video of her hair stylist buzzing her hair off, which the singer claims she did totally for herself. “Finally free,” she declare on March 15. The shocking video was followed by multiple posts of her new, bald look. As you may know, Tamar filed for divorce from Vincent in October 2017 after nine years of marriage, where she alluded that Herbert allegedly cheated.
Wendy also went for Tamar because she has been missing from her family’s promo appearances for their WeTV reality show, Braxton Family Values, which is set to premiere on Thursday, March 22. “She suffers from all the girls in the family and she has the youngest [child] syndrome,” Wendy declared. She went on to share a story from her radio days, where she recalled her first encounter with Tamar. “I remember the first time we met Tamar, she sucked the life out of the studio. I was on the radio interviewing Toni Braxton… and then there was this girl popping and locking in the corner and I wasn’t looking in her direction yet I can see her and I’m like, ‘Can you move over for a second.’ … ‘Who are you?’” Check out the video of Wendy’s statements at www.itsKenBarbie.com with the FULL story or SWIPE, what do you guys think?

Did anyone else starting singing “Gator shooooessss, with the pimped out Gucci suittttts” after reading that headline?
Birdman and Mannie Fresh have long hinted at a reunion. It seems our patience has finally been rewarded, as The Big Tymers are set to release a new single on friday, after years apart. Their hiatus has been spelled out to us as a professional retreat. They have none the less maintained a close friendship over the years.
The Cash Money mogul took to Instagram to announce the single, named “Designer Caskets.” The post also made mention of an April 6/7 release for the video. It seems they are really banking on the legend card. The pair has not performed or recorded since 2005, with Birdman successfully becoming the man behind the mask. To his credit, Birdman knows a thing or two about staging a coup, as you might recall.
Birdman has long controlled the narrative of the Cash Money story from its humble beginnings, and yet no retelling is truthful without handing credit over to Mannie Fresh for helping personify their brand from an artistic perspective. Birdman for his part, carried out their business strategy, while passing as a rapper, albeit just barely. We’ll have to wait and see if the duo have rediscovered their magic after years apart. Are you here for this reunion? #birdman#birdman5star#manniefresh#cashmoney#youngmoney#bigtymers#stillfly#hereforit#entertainment#entertainmentblog#gossip#celebrities#celebrityblogger#kenbarbie#itskenbarbie
Pharrell & Robin are still dealing with their copyright lawsuit.
The 2015 case between Pharrell and Robin Thicke’s hit track “Blurred Line” and the correlation to Marvin Gaye’s “Got to Give It Up” is still very much underway. The Hollywood Reporter reports that Thicke’s team argued that Marvin’s 1977 song only had “thin” protection adding that “musical compositions are not confined to a narrow range of expression.” Judge Milan D. Smith Jr. rejected that motion but has dropped T.I. and Interscope Records from the case. “Got to Give It Up” was one of the last songs created before the 1909 Copyright Act (that didn’t protect sound recordings) changed in 1970 to protect sounds and not just lyrics. Because of this, the judge decided that only the sheet music was to be protected, but the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals thinks otherwise and thinks sounds should be looked at also. “The majority allows the Gayes to accomplish what no one has before: copyright a musical style,” Judge Jacqueline Nguyen, who is on Marvin’s side, said of the case. “”Blurred Lines” and “Got to Give It Up” are not objectively similar. They differ in melody, harmony, and rhythm. Yet by refusing to compare the two works, the majority establishes a dangerous precedent that strikes a devastating blow to future musicians and composers everywhere.” Check out exactly how similar the two songs are at www.itsKenBarbie.com or SWIPE.. what do you guys think? #robinthicke#thicke#robin#pharrell#pharrellwilliams#nerd#blurredlines#marvingaye#marvin#gaye#gottogiveitup#entertainment#entertainmentblog#gossip#celebrities#celebrityblogger#kenbarbie#itskenbarbie
Cue the tears. SZA has announced that, following the release of her sophomore album, she will not be releasing any more albums. While the statement doesn’t rule out mixtapes or EPs, SZA told Flaunt in a new interview that she’s working on the best music of her life for her CTRL follow-up, admitting that she doesn’t have plans to go much further after its release. When discussing a potential sophomore slump, the singer noted peers Frank Ocean and TDE labelmate Kendrick Lamar who have strived on their second albums.
She has been open about her struggles with depression in the past, revealing “I’m still miserable.” SZA followed up the comment by hinting at her impending retirement: “My world got so much smaller so fast. I have so much to write about. I feel like I’m in a cage. I’m making the best album of my life for this next album and I know that… because it’s going to be my last album.” While the publication notes that the artist delivered the announcement with a light-hearted grin, SZA has been known to flirt with the idea of leaving music.
SZA has certainly proved herself at the top of the loaded R&B roster of talent, with her debut album CTRL impressing many and leaving fans wanting more. While the allusion to retirement could simply be a remark made jokingly, we’ll see if she keeps her word. Nevertheless, we’re looking forward to the re-issue of CTRL and the upcoming follow-up. Are you sad to hear it could be SZA’s finale?

Amber Rose is here to check anyone that comes for her son.
Earlier today, Amber Rose shared an adorable clip of her and Wiz Khalifa’s son, Bash, receiving tickets to a upcoming Taylor Swift concert (SEE PREV POST) that was sent from Swift herself. Bash’s love for Taylor Swift’s music has been well-documented in the past. However, Rose received some negative comments from people on social media about her son’s fandom for Taylor but Amber wasn’t about to let it slide.
When it comes to her son, Amber Rose definitely doesn’t play. She took to her Instagram story to clap back at anyone who’s been talking reckless about her son and calling Bash gay simply because he enjoys Taylor Swift’s music. Her tirade went for a few posts long and she explained that this is the type of online bullying that leads young kids to kill themselves and in her word, “why our society is so fucked up.” She later revealed that Bash was recently accepted into the most prestigious school in Los Angeles and that her and Wiz Khalifa allow Bash to be himself, in whatever way he pleases.
However, there was a bigger picture to her message. “Let’s do better for the next generation people. Grow the fuck up and teach ur kids to love and not hate,” she said.
To conclude, she also revealed that Bash has more money in the bank than “any of you trolls could even imagine.” In all honesty, he probably has more money than us non-trolls too.

After a short hiatus to deal with her health issues, Wendy Williams has returned to her talk show in full force, discussing the hot topics of the week. Of course, one of the biggest stories of late has been Donald Trump Jr.’s divorce with his wife. Considering his father is the current President of the United States, a cheating scandal is not good news for the White House but that’s exactly what has broken out. Trump Jr. allegedly cheated on his wife with Aubrey O’Day, former Danity Kane member, after meeting on The Celebrity Apprentice.
Wendy went into the issue with full steam, giving her personal brand of commentary on the alleged cheating scandal. Wendy did not stop there as she also chimed in on Fetty Wap, congratulating him for the arrival of his two new children. In the process of informing her audience about the news, Wendy proceeds to mildly clown Fetty. “He just became a dad with his seventh child. Five different women,” she told her audience to their surprise. Before changing the subject, she notes that this is Fetty’s second child in three months, deeming the kids “hood twins.” Wendy has been off the air for a few weeks after being diagnosed with Graves Disease. Guest host Jerry O’Connell temporarily sat in her chair and many fans embraced his charm.

The Game is now facing contempt charges for not meeting the requirements of his 2016 Sexual Battery case.
The Game is facing contempt of court charges for failing to produce documentation that would excuse him from paying the $7 Million owed to Priscilla Rainey. The charges were seconded by the judicial powers that be. The deposition called into question The Game’s sexual advances towards the plaintiff while they were filming a segment for She’s Got Game in May of 2015. The Game allegedly slid his hands up and down her dress against her wishes. Rainey filed a $10 Million lawsuit for which she was awarded $7 Million, citing “physical, psychological and emotional damages” as a result of the groping incident.
Rainey’s attorney filed a request to audit The Game’s financial records, in an attempt to force payment beyond reasonable doubt. The Game & his legal team have given her the snub. No payment has been made since the ruling in 2016, leading to our present day court summon on charges of contempt. The Game continues to deny her accusations, and defy the court order against him.
The additional charges will be taken into consideration on April 5, at a hearing scheduled to take place at the U.S. District Court in Chicago.

Although Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose are no longer romantically linked, they have been co-parenting their son Sebastian Taylor Thomaz, providing a good example for separated parents to care for their children. Bash recently turned 5 years old, celebrating his birthday in Super-Hero fashion, donning Suicide Squad gear. While his birthday was approximately one month ago, the five-year-old is still being spoiled with gifts from unexpected sources. A special package came in the mail, addressed by Taylor Swift, leading the kid to excitedly open the parcel.
As we all did as children, Bash couldn’t wait to find out what was inside of the box as he struggled to get the top off. Amber ended up helping him out to reveal that Taylor had sent tickets to her concert, as well as a care package themed around her most recent album Reputation. Both Amber and Taylor have shown support for each other in the past, perhaps bonding over their mutual distaste of Kanye West. You’ll recall, Kanye dated the model during the 808s & Heartbreak era and Taylor Swift has never forgiven him for the MTV Video Awards incident.
Sebastian proceeds to thank Taylor for sending over such a thoughtful present in the two-part video, before presumably jamming out to some of the pop star’s music. Watch the videos below to see Bash celebrate pure joy as he opens his gifts.

Fetty Wap has become a father for the seventh time, welcoming a son just two months after he welcomed a daughter with ex Alexis Skyy.
The 26-year-old rapper, whose real name is Willie Maxwell II, and the baby’s mother Lezhae Zeona already share a daughter together, Zaviera Maxwell, who is almost 3.
Zeona shared a video of herself with her baby boy on Instagram Live, which was captured by another social media account. She appeared to be in a hospital bed while her son was wrapped in a blue and white blanket as she kissed his forehead.
The “Trap Queen” star also welcomed a daughter Alaiya Grace, who was born three months premature in January. The little girl remains hospitalized.
As news broke about Fetty’s newest addition, Skyy shared a picture her daughter, saying the countdown to her release is now on. The baby still requires help breathing and is using a feeding tube. “I swear being your mother is the best thing that happen to me the countdown begins,” she wrote on Twitter.
Aside from his daughter with Skyy and the two children he shares with Zeona, Fetty has a son named Aydin Zoovier, 6, a daughter Khari Barbie, 2, who is just over a month older than his other daughter, Amani, and just a few months older than yet another daughter, Lauren.
To be missing one eye, Fetty’s third sure does see a lot of action. Congratulations!

Ray J and Princess Love held their baby shower over the weekend without his mother and sister – all reportedly due to a big blowout argument that went down the day before.
According to TMZ, sources say both Brandy and her mother, Sonja Norwood, skipped the shower Saturday after the women got into a war of words during a gender reveal party on Friday. The source of contention was over what the Norwoods perceived to be online shade toward Ray J.
Apparently, Princess Love had recently tweeted some cryptic messages about cheating … and not staying in a relationship just because you have a baby with someone. We’re told Brandy and Sonja took that to be an unwarranted shot at Ray … and s*** hit the fan.
Sources say Brandy and Sonja demanded that PL apologize to Ray J, and that started a huge fight. Princess Love told the two ladies to mind their own business … adding they had no right to weigh in on her relationship since they couldn’t keep their own together.
The diss definitely left a mark … ’cause Brandy and Sonja opted not to attend the couple’s shower, and we’re told it was absolutely due to the argument.
Here's hoping the family can make amends. Keep up with the story at www.itsKenBarbie.com #rayj#brandy#brandynorwood#sonja#sonjanorwood#princesslove#lhhh#loveandhiphophollywood#loveandhiphop#entertainment#entertainmentblog#gossip#celebrities#celebrityblogger#kenbarbie#itskenbarbie

Donald Trump is once again stirring the pot when it comes to his proposed laws and regulations. The President’s new plan to crack down on the opioid drug addiction is to have more strict enforcement on drug traffickers, such as the death penalty. “This isn’t about nice anymore,” Donald said, via CBC News. “This is about winning a very, very tough problem and if we don’t get very tough on these dealers it’s not going to happen folks… I want to win this battle.” Opioids, heroin and synthetic drugs such as fentanyl killed more than 42,000 people in the U.S., the publication reports. Donald argues that if one person can get the death penalty or life in prison for shooting one person, then a drug dealer who potentially kills thousands should get the same punishment.
Some professors have spoken on the matter such as Cornell Law School Professor John H. Blume, who stated that this move will not affect the “kingpins” of the drug trade, but rather the poor minorities who are low- to mid-level drug dealers. “I don’t think there’s any reason to believe that attempting to revive this policy and use it more effectively will be any more successful,” John said, in reference to the drug war of the 1970s and ’80s. “I don’t think people out there who sell drugs are worried about, am I going to get the death penalty?” I don’t think I should even have to ask, no one should agree with this foolishness…but, for kicks and giggles…what do you guys think? Facts or reaching?

With the first day of Spring here, it would seem as good a time as any for a miracle. In case you don’t know, the frequently embattled ex-couple Nas and Kelis have been warring over child support for a minute now; as far as celebrity splits go, this one has been fraught with legal drama. It’s unfortunate, especially given the genuine sentimentality Nas exhibited in Life Is Good closer “Bye Baby,” but child support feuds can be a merciless affair. For now, at least, both Nas and Kelis were able to temporarily put aside their differences for the good of their eight year old son, Knight. According to TMZ, the exes have reportedly reached a settlement allowing joint custody.
The publication claims that Nas and Kelis will be sharing both legal and physical custody of Knight. The holidays have already been predetermined, with the example of Nas getting Father’s Day and Kelis getting Mother’s Day being given. The duo will also alternate birthdays, with Nas getting the even years and Kelis getting the odd ones. It’s good to know that the artists were able to make this happen, and hopefully the same cooperation can continue when it comes time to revisit child support arrangements.
As of now, Nas has been contributing eight thousand a month toward the cause. Since Nas has also been securing the bag of late, Kelis feels he can afford to fork over a few extra ducats. The saga has yet to reach a conclusion.

CupcakKe’s one of hip hop’s most unique forces right now. Her music shares a different perspective that’s not often found in music, focusing on body and sex positive messages and empowering women. Some of her music does have raunchy aspects to it to an extent but, it’s part of why people love her so much. However, it looks like YouTube wasn’t feeling some of her visual content as they’ve taken down two of her music videos due to “nudity/sexual content.” CupcakKe took to Twitter today to to put YouTube on blast for taking down her music videos for “Deepthroat” and “Duck Duck Goose” due to what they claim as nudity and sexual content. “Deepthroat” was sitting at 23 million views by the time it was removed.” “I kn[ow] the fuck y’all didn’t deleted deepthroat video off YouTube at 23 million views @YouTube PUT IT BACK UP NOW,” she wrote.
Shortly after, she noticed they deleted “Duck Duck Goose” and the rapper threatened to delete her YouTube channel entirely if they take down one more video.
She later revealed that they did message her about nudity. “Sad thing is , is they sent me a message talking about nudity . When I’m not nude In not one video . I have on pasties so what’s really going on,” she wrote.
YouTube has since put “Deepthroat” back on their platform but “Duck Duck Goose” is still removed. Get the FULL details at www.itsKenBarbie.com #cupcakke#deepthroat#duckduckgoose#marilynmonhoe#entertainment#entertainmentblog#gossip#celebrities#celebrityblogger#kenbarbie#itskenbarbie
As the explosive sixth season of the “Braxton Family Values,” draws near, it seems as if there’s inner turmoil amongst the closely knit Braxton family.
According to TMZ, Tamar Braxton is refusing to participate in any upcoming promo appearances for the hit reality show because she feels her family is unfairly portraying her estranged husband, Vince Herbert.
The source told the outlet that Braxton is fed up and feels they have tarnished Herbert’s name for promotional gain. She’s reportedly only agreeing to participate in promotional appearances if the footage that she disagrees with is fixed.
Braxton filed for divorce in October, just days before the couple’s ninth wedding anniversary. After the news hit the airwaves, rumors swirled surrounding the cause for the couple’s separation. Weeks after Braxton’s mom, Evelyn, revealed that she feared for her Tamar’s life in an exclusive with TMZ. Braxton and Herbert have agreed to co-parent their son Logan but have not shared any plans to reconcile.
A promo for the show uncovers that the family found out about Tamar’s divorce after reading the announcement online, while reacting to Evelyn’s tea spilling. Check out that footage in the FULL story at www.itsKenBarbie.com or SWIPE for a preview of episode 1
We hope that there’s no actual beef between the Braxton women and that these reports are just that, rumors.
