Surprised? Khloe Kardashian And Tristan Thompson Are Reportedly Kaput Again! Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson broke up a few weeks ago, friends of the former couple exclusively revealed to Page Six. “They’re getting along. There is no drama,” a source said, adding that “everything is amicable, and they are on the same page with co-parenting.” Kardashian, 36, and Thompson, 30, are parents to 3-year-old daughter True.  According to Page Six, the couple split shortly after Instagram model Sydney Chase claimed during an April interview that she hooked up with the NBA player in the Fall.  The news of their breakup comes after reports that Thompson was allegedly spotted entering a room with three women at a Bel Air birthday party on Friday and emerged 30 minutes later looking “disheveled” — just one day after dining with Kardashian and True.

The Ready To Love Roundup-Kyra Confronts Jason On Who He Really Wants: If you saw the show, you know Kyra refused to accept Jason choosing Liz over her.  She felt misled by Jason and his decision because of a previous dialogue with him where she was convinced she was his top pick. She requested a meeting with him to clarify and he did. Liz was indeed the winner of his heart. (See above photo) The show ended with four couples instead of the usual three,  AJ & Kyra, (though we doubt if they will make it because of Kyra’s confusion on who she really wants to b with) Liz and Jason, Chris and Amber, and Joel and Arneashia. Two highlights of the show were when Jason presented Liz (photo on left) with a white rose to reflect her “purity of spirit,” and when Chris announced to Amber that he was on “semen retention” until he was certain he was with the right woman.

Who truly knows how Nina Simone would’ve felt after watching Chloe’s performance, but it sure caused a lot of controversy.  Click the photo and see what you think.

LaLa Anthony Has Officially Filed For Divorce From Carmelo Anthony: La La Anthony has filed after years of trying to work things out. BOSSIP reports…Carmelo Anthony and La La Anthony have always kept their relationship private, but when a split is on the horizon, things tend to become more public than any public figure would like. LaLa separated from Carmelo in 2017, but they later reconciled. Later, in 2019, La La said she might be pursuing a divorce and noted that they were living apart. Her announcement came after pictures surfaced seemingly showing Carmelo yachting with a mystery woman. The basketball star cried over the photos and said he was on a “business trip” with a friend and his wife.  According to TMZ, La La has made her mind up and has chosen Splitsville, USA.  LaLa filed divorce docs Thursday in New York, 11 years after tying the knot with the NBA star, and cited irreconcilable differences. Sources close to the former couple tell TMZ … they’ve been separated for a while but remain friends, as always, after 16 years together, and everything about the divorce is amicable.

DMX’s Family Is Fighting Over His Estate:  BOSSIP reports…When hip hop legend Earl Simmons (DMX)  passed away, a battle is brewing over what he left behind. At the time of his sudden death in April, the rapper had been engaged to Desiree Lindstrom since 2019. She is the mother of his 5-year-old son Exodus and according to Page Six, she recently applied to be legally declared DMX’s common-law wife. A judge denied the request, which might have secured her more control over the rapper’s assets and future earnings than his 15 children. Five of his adult children were already fighting amongst themselves in court since May, just a few weeks after the funeral.  DMX did not have a written will or established estate. His daughters Sasha Simmons and Jada Oden petitioned the court to become administrators of his estate. Shortly after that his sons Xavier, Tacoma, and Sean Simmons petitioned the court separately to be the estate administrators instead. Despite the Ruff Ryders rapper’s incredible career including 20 movies and more than 74 million records sold, the sons’ filing estimates the estate is worth less than $1 million and the daughters estimated less than $50,000. In addition to financial struggles from decades of drug addiction and supporting 15 children in 9 households, the IRS reportedly imposed a tax lien on DMX for $663,554.55 and in 2018 he was convicted for $1.7 million of tax fraud

Carol:  “After going on three dates with this one guy, I discovered he wasn’t a gentleman.  Though he was absolutely beautiful to look at, and I hadn’t met anyone so interesting in a while, I knew he wasn’t the one for me.  He didn’t hold doors, and he would never introduce me to anyone when we encountered others he knew.  I refused to go out with him again after he drove off one night after letting me out in front of my home without even waiting for me to get in the door.”      MORE

  • “On my first date with a really handsome brother, he asked me to pick him up because his car was in the shop, pay the check because he left his wallet at home, and then let him spend the night so I could drive him to pick up his car the next day. I left him at the restaurant after I paid the check..” – “You can always gauge a woman’s interest in you by her girlfriends’ reaction when you meet them for the first time. If they’ve never heard of you, she ain’t interested!” – “I once went out with a guy who didn’t like the dress I was wearing, so he took me to the store and bought one he liked.  It was beautiful and expensive, and I felt like Julia Roberts in the movie, Pretty Woman.”  MORE

Love: When It Ends

Can Women Take The Truth?

.by Theo McNee

I think like most men when I tire of a relationship I scale back a little at a time with more excuses than an explanation.  I considered the unfairness of this, as my best friend’s ex-fiancee sat across from me blinking back tears, as she pondered the reasons that caused her to be dumped.  As I listened, I felt bad that I couldn’t comfort her.  After all, all I knew was the truth, and the truth wouldn’t have made her feel better.  The truth was that the only mistake she’d made was falling in love with someone who didn’t love her back.

10 Things To Note When
You Meet Someone New

by Jovan Tahale

  1. Be alert!  Pay close attention to all the things he/she says or does.  It’s healthy and smart to be cautious and paranoid until you know him/her better.  One guy was dating a woman who claimed to be single but learned on the third date, that she had an order of protection on her estranged husband, who angrily confronted them leaving a restaurant. 2. Develop an “Intimacy Principle” and stick to it.  Sex in these times should no longer be a frivolous act.  Protection and detection should be the theme of the relationship.  Sexually transmitted diseases and domestic violence acts too often occur two-three months after the initial meeting.           MORE
