Propose To

Khloe K?

by Cheryl Lakes

Is This Engagement True Of False?  Did one of the stars of The Cleveland Cavaliers, Tristan  Thompson really propose to Khloe Kardashian?  Rumors are all over the place that after just two months of dating, Khloe  and Tristan got engaged, but according to a close source, the rumors couldn’t be farther from the truth.  A couple days ago, an ESPN writer, David McMenamin tweeted: “A source close to Tristan Thompson tells ESPN the story regarding his engagement to Khloe Kardashian is false on both counts.”  There are also rumors that Khloe is pregnant with the NBA baller’s child, which sounds a little farfetched seeing as Thompson’s ex-girlfriend is supposedly due to give birth soon and the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star is rumored to still be hooked up with Lamar Odom.   Stay tuned.

drake-1024Drake Celebrates His 30th Birthday: To say Drake’s 30th birthday celebration on Sunday night in Los Angeles was star-studded would be an understatement. The rapper officially turned 30 years old on Monday, but celebrated a day early at Delilah restaurant in West Hollywood, California.  Guests included Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, John Mayer, Jamie Foxx, French Montana, Shay Mitchell, Zoe Kravitz, and Drake’s dad, Dennis Graham.  Obviously, the party had the potential to get awkward fast, given Swift and Perry’s well-known “bad blood” and the fact that they both dated Mayer.   Swift, however, appeared to let loose at the big bash, holding cash in her cropped tube top in Instagram pics from the event.  We hear that Jamie Foxx sang at the event.  Guests also sipped on Drake’s Virginia Black Whiskey, drinking Delilah’s specialty cocktail appropriately titled “Champagne Papi” that’s made with the rapper’s liquor.  There was no sign of Rihanna at the party, which isn’t surprising given the two reportedly split up again earlier this month.

Suge Knight Is Suing Dr. Dre For Trying suge-dreTo Kill Him:  According to The New York Daily News, months after first making the wild allegation, Suge Knight is now suing Dr. Dre with claims the hitmaker hired hitmen to kill him.  The jailed Death Row Records founder claims Andre “Dr. Dre” Young wanted him dead to get out from under an alleged lifetime management agreement specifying Knight should get 30% of the millions Young made selling his Beats headphones business to Apple and producing “Straight Outta Compton” for Universal.  Knight claims Young first hired a gunman to shoot him inside the 1Oak nightclub in West Hollywood in August 2014 and then funded a follow-up armed assault at Tam’s burgers in Compton in January 2015.  “Dr. Dre did it. Andre Young is responsible for both crimes,”  Knight’s new lawsuit filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court states.  Serious attempts on Knight’s life began only after Young was paid through Apple on May 28, 2014,” the lawsuit claims.  “Given that Dre has had zero interaction with Suge since leaving Death Row Records in 1996, we hope that Suge’s lawyer has lots of malicious prosecution insurance,” an attorney for Dr. Dre states.  The new civil filing from Knight’s lawyer Thaddeus Culpepper is a cross-complaint in a wrongful death lawsuit brought by the widow of Terry Carter.

Jay Z Doing A Good Thing: Jay Z is using his platform to make sure young black Americans exercise their right to vote in the upcoming election.The rapper, who announced his support for Hillary Clinton long ago, is set to hold a concert in Ohio as a way of encouraging black millennials to vote for the Democratic nominee, Buzzfeed reports.  The Clinton campaign has been putting forth a good effort to increase black voter turnout, which was record-breaking during the 2008 and 2012 elections, for several months now.  The high percentage of black voters in 2012 helped re-elect President Barack Obama and could ultimately decide the upcoming election.  An endorsement from Jay Z doesn’t come as much of a surprise…given how outspoken the rapper has been about police brutality and the relationship between African-Americans and law enforcement.

My fiancé wants to invite his ex-wife to our wedding despite my objection.

Q.  I’m getting married next month, and my husband-to-be wants to invite his ex-wife to the ceremony, because their children will be there. I object to this because I think he should leave the past, in the past, and I don’t wish to be reminded of all the drama I went through with her, when he and I were dating.   MORE

First Impression

Hank was hard to impress and prided himself on being honest. He viewed people who skirted the truth as weak and spineless.  He also didn’t approve of soft-pedaling language.  To him, the truth could stand on its own and therefore should be expressed regardless of the consequences.  For Hank, truth had a certain shock value and he enjoyed watching its impact on others.  He would get excited at the prospect of blowing someone away with his bluntness.  MORE

A Major Romance Risk  

by Clair Strong

Recent studies show that more single women across this country are subjecting their young daughters to perilous encounters with live-in lovers whom they’ve chosen as companions. A childhood friend desperate for “love” and any kind of attention moved a guy she’d known three months into a home she shared with her two teenage daughters.  He had a prison record, which she knew about it, but was too bedazzled by her need, to care.   MORE

Guy Rule

by Ken Clarkso

My cousin once asked me if a woman would be considered too aggressive, if she approached a guy at a party and asked him to dance.  I told her not necessarily, but she had to have the confidence to sustain her just in case she was rejected.  I also explained that this kind of act usually works best when a woman sparkles with personality and looks good as well.  MORE
