Beyonce’s Former Drummer Requests Restraining Order Against Her:  Beyonce’s former drummer, Kimberly Thompson, (pictured) requested a restraining order against her because she claimed the singer practices “extreme witchcraft,” The Blast reported. According to the lawsuit, Beyoncé has allegedly been using her magic to run surveillance and control Thompson’s finances.  Thompson also claimed that the “Lemonade” singer started a campaign of harassment against her, which includes “dark magic” and “magic spells of sexual molestation.” She also alleged Beyonce murdered her kitten.  Huh?  A judge denied Thompson’s request for a restraining order. Neither Beyoncé’s rep nor Thompson could be reached for comment.

Jimmy Butler Demands Trade Amidst Rumors:  Minnesota Timber-wolves forward Jimmy Butler has demanded a trade from the team following a meeting with head coach Tom Thibodeau on Monday according to ESPN.  According to BOSSIP, among the many reasons Jimmy asked for a trade, is the tension with teammate Karl-Anthony Towns  Let the super sleuths on the internet tell it, those grievances don’t solely stem from poor defensive effort or reckless turnovers. One might say it’s the result of a…flagrant foul according to an alleged story on BSO.

The Foxy Brown Controversy:  Foxy Brown has fired back in her fashion feud with designer LaQuan Smith after Brown allegedly refused to perform at Smith’s Fashion Week bash, and then kept the fee anyway.  After a week of silence on the matter, Brown has now denied the wild incident, calling it a Fashion Week fable and saying her team plans to “meticulously prepare for fierce litigation.”  Smith hasn’t commented, but a source told Page Six, “they’re letting the courts handle it.”  Brooklyn rapper Brown was meant to play Smith’s VIP New York Fashion Week party, but allegedly showed up late, stumbled around, refused to perform, then kept the check. After the incident, Page Six reported that Brown’s pr rep quit, and the fashion party’s organizers threatened to sue.   But on Thursday, in a series of blistering Instagram posts, Brown fumed over Smith’s treatment of her. One caption reads, “I’m appalled even addressing this fictitious, ‘FASHION WEEK FAIRYTALE’ you’ve concocted to the media!”  She added, “As our upper echelon, BLACK SUPER HERO OF FASHION, I’m embarrassed for YOU,” and alleged that the whole sordid situation was “a scandalous attempt to bring discord into MY INCREDIBLE COMEBACK!”  Brown — who “Page Six TV” reported had a wardrobe malfunction at the event when she was given two high-heel boots meant for the same foot — alleged in Instagram posts that she was left waiting outside the party for two hours in a truck “for the correct size boot to arrive. At that point, not only did I arrive on time, MIC in hand, but arrived at the after party as well, prepared to rock! I’ve allowed you to bask & twirl in this fraudulent press, purposely silenced, as we meticulously prepare for FIERCE LITIGATION.”  She added, “We were handed a a handwritten, undated, check that had been CANCELLED!”

Kanye West Sends Message To Nick Cannon, Drake and Tyson Beckford About His Wife:   West posted a series of videos to Instagram, in which he addressed comments that Cannon — as well as Drake and Tyson Beckford — have separately made about his wife, Kim Kardashian.  Cannon responded in a video, “First off let me say, ‘Welcome back Ye from the sunken place. It’s a beautiful thing, glad you back with us brother.”  He adds, “Honestly I got to say this my dude… I have never said anything disrespectful or harmful in my opinion to your marriage or your union. I salute it… keep it going. But you’re not going to tell me what I can and cannot say. I am a solid individual — somebody asks me a question, I am going to answer it to the best of my ability. I am going to give my opinion… no harm, no foul.”  Cannon also said, “I know it got your spirit feeling weird. Holla at me, you know where I am.”  In the first of West’s four clips, he proclaimed he could not speak freely about “some things that were not sitting right with my spirit.  First of all, I want to address Nick Cannon.  I understand you used to date my wife, but you get in an interview – don’t mention my wife. If someone brings my wife up, say, ‘Hey, I respect that man, I’m not speaking on that.’ Don’t be making no suggestions like nobody f—ked my wife.”

Donald Trump’s Star Behind Bars:  Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame got the prison bars treatment … after a familiar prankster pulled off the hilarious stunt.  The president’s  star was locked down after a street artist, who goes by the name Plastic Jesus, attached bars to the star. PJ laid down the bars much to everyone’s amusement before a wandering Trump supporter took matters into his own hands Wednesday and spent hours pulling the tape up.

I’m a schoolteacher dating a janitor at my school who has become starstruck. How can I bring him back to where he used to be?

by Sarah Smart

Q.  I’m a schoolteacher, who recently became involved with a guy who works at my school as a maintenance worker. I was initially attracted to him because of his good looks, confidence and sense of humor.  However, when we began dating, he became Mr. Klutz.  He acts star-struck and suddenly ridiculously inhibited.   He can’t seem to get over the fact that I could like him.  I would like to see him act his old self again.  He refuses to be seen with me in public and it’s driving me crazy.  Any suggestions on how to get us back on the same track?    MORE

The Dilemma

One Ring…

2 Women

by Carl Gitland

It had been a tiring drive from the airport to my apartment because I had allowed non-stop thinking to completely exhaust me mentally.  I had a problem and the need to solve it was pressing heavily on my mind.  Angela, the woman beside me had gone with me to Jamaica and it was pleasant being with her.  But I had not enjoyed her this time, like I usually did.  She loved me and everything to her was beautiful and awe-inspiring.  But it was Karen, the woman I loved, who had occupied my mind on what seemed like a long drive home.  I had lied to get away with Angela and I had lied to get back home to Karen.    MORE


14 Things Guys

Wish Girls Knew…  

by Jake Landis

  1. Don’t take everything we do so personally.  We cannot behave, feel, think or talk the way you think we should. Believe it or not, we are not the same.  Please allow for the fact that our brains work on a different scale.
  2. When we want to tell you something, we’ll tell you.  Don’t badger us about what’s going on in our heads when we’re quiet.  Silence could mean a lot of things.  We could be savoring the relationship or be pre-occupied with a personal dilemma we don’t wish to discuss.

  3. Never compliment another woman about her hair or dress, when you are out with us…and never let an evening end without you telling us how beautiful we look.    MORE
