Rihanna Seen With A$AP Rocky After Split From Billionaire Boyfriend: Rihanna had only just begun to seem comfortable discussing her relationship with Hassan Jameel in interviews when multiple outlets reported this week that the two have ended their romance of three years. And in a matter of days, the rumor mill was already buzzing again with romance chatter about Rih and her friend-slash-rumored former flame, A$AP Rocky. On Friday, Jan. 17, the two were photographed by a fan backstage together at the Yams Day concert in New York City, according to In Touch.
Their appearanceit was enough to reignite rumors that the pair’s relationship is more than platonic, particularly given their appearance together at the 2019 Fashion Awards in the U.K. last month. Rihanna and Rocky were first linked as a couple back in 2013, when they were spotted kissing during some down-time on the music video shoot for “Fashion Killa.” The singer’s romance with Hassan first came to light in June 2017, although Us Weekly has reported they had been seeing each other for “a few months” at that point. In the June 2019 edition of Interview, Rihanna acknowledged that she was in love with Hassan but said “only God knows” if they’d ever tie the knot. Later that year in a Vogue cover story, the singer was asked if she was dating anyone special. “I’m actually in an exclusive relationship for quite some time,” she said, “and it’s going really well, so I’m happy.”
They’re At It Again! Shame Shame! NeNe Admits She Stopped Herself From Spitting On Kenya Moore: BOSSIP reports: After trying to deny Kenya’s claims that she tried to spit on her, NeNe’s been caught red-handed hocking up spit in her fellow housewife’s direction. As previously reported by LoveBScott, Kenya and NeNe got into it over Kenya’s estranged husband Marc Daly while on the cast trip to Athens, Greece. Kenya allegedly was angry that NeNe and her husband Gregg had been in contact with her ex and a shouting match ensued. That’s when NeNe allegedly prepared to spit at Kenya–but stopped herself. Now the mid-season RHOA trailer’s been released and in it, you can CLEARLY see NeNe at least purse her lips with her tongue out as though she was preparing to spit. NeNe was apparently peeved that Kenya told her to “Please go to jail again.” According to NeNe, however, she doesn’t regret the run-in with Kenya and she ticked off reasons why “Kenya deserves it. She need 2 be spit on wit all the horrible things she has said & done! From constantly startin s*** wit me all season, lying on me, sayin I’m on drugs & bipolar. Plus that recent tweet she posted- so enjoy the moment! I DID the act but DIDNT SPIT! I Wish i had tho! No regrets.” What a mess!
Oprah Winfrey Says Russell Simmons Tried To Stop Her From Producing A Docu About Reports Of Sexual Allegations Against Him: Page Six reports…Oprah Winfrey says Russell Simmons tried to stop her from producing a documentary about sexual assault allegations against him. “He did reach out multiple times and attempted to pressure me,” Winfrey told Fox. Last week, Winfrey backed out of the doc called “On the Record,” which she was executive-producing. She also revealed it will no longer air on AppleTV+. A spokesperson told Fox that her departure had nothing to do with Simmons’ attempts. In December 2017, four women who worked with the music mogul professionally said that Simmons raped them, starting in the 1980s. Other women have accused him of sexual assault. Simmons, 62, denies the claims. A rep for Winfrey, 65, said her stepping down had to do with inconsistencies in the documentary’s reporting, particularly with the claim of Def Jam executive Drew Dixon. Despite these issues, Winfrey reportedly “believes all of the women” who have accused Simmons. The former talk-show host also allegedly felt the completion of the film didn’t need to be rushed to premiere at the Sundance Film Festival. It is scheduled to debut on Jan. 25. Simmons had expressed his anger at Winfrey’s involvement in the doc on his Instagram.

They also reported that they are living together. Since then, the couple has been spotted all over LA together, even spending time with Banks’ son, York, whom she shares with ex-boyfriend Erik Asla.
Rapper Pop Smoke Busted For Stealing Rolls Royce Used In Video Shoot: Rising hip-hop star Pop Smoke was hauled before a federal judge in Brooklyn on Friday on a charge that he stole a black Rolls Royce used in a video shoot in Los Angeles and took it back home with him in Brooklyn. The “Welcome to the Party” rapper, whose real name is Bashar Jackson, allegedly took photos of himself with the $375,000 luxury vehicle and posted them to his social media accounts as it was transported in November in a truck to his Brooklyn home. A law enforcement source said that Pop Smoke convinced the owner of the Rolls Royce to borrow the car for the November video shoot with promises of VIP treatment and backstage passes to future shows. But after the shoot wrapped, the tickets didn’t materialize — and the Rolls Royce had not been returned. According to Page Six, the source said,“The owner starts getting the runaround as to where the car is, where Pop Smoke is,” the source said. “Finally he reports the car stolen the next day to the LAPD.” The pricey auto was eventually located on Dec. 3 in front of the Brooklyn residence that Pop Smoke shares with his parents, according to the source. The rapper is charged with interstate transportation of a stolen motor vehicle. Magistrate Judge Ramon Reyes Jr. let Pop Smoke walk free on a $250,000 bond secured with his mother’s house in Brooklyn.

Q. I went out with a guy recently for the first time, who was impressive. We went to dinner and later to the movies, and I had a lovely time. However, everything went south when we left the theater. A woman appeared out of nowhere and accosted us angrily. She claimed to be his fiancée and accused him of cheating on her. I left him arguing with her. Later, he called and claimed the woman was an ex-girlfriend who wouldn’t let go of the relationship. Since that time, he has been begging me to go out with him again, but I refused. I don’t want to get caught up in his drama, and my instincts are telling me to take a pass, though he’s tempting. My friends think I’m crazy because he’s single and therefore, fair game. Would you go out with him again? MORE

In Unspoken Terms
The ride had been silent since they left the party. No words had been spoken between them. Maria knew he was proud to be with her, but she had been embarrassed but said nothing. She hoped he would make a good impression, but he had not. Her friends had been polite, but their disdain was apparent. It had been obvious that he’d had little or no exposure. She glanced at him as he drove along. He was void of expression. She wondered about his thoughts. She thought about how humiliating it had been when he mentioned that he had never been to college or out of the country. MORE

Hank – “Avoid the hookup when you’re not on the same playing field. I got involved with a woman, who was too nice for me, and what I had in mind. She was hoping for marriage or at best a serious relationship and all I wanted was fun and sex. I felt really bad when I learned that she suffered a nervous breakdown when I stopped seeing her.” John – “You really don’t have to lie. This year, I was seen out with one woman by another woman I was dating, and when she approached me in a confrontational way, I told her the truth…that she was not the only person I dated. Not only did she accept it, but we also continued dating. MORE

What Is The Most Exciting Thing You Did Last Year?
Myra M: “I took flying lessons and got engaged to my instructor two months later. Colin K: “I got off drugs, turned my life around and began spending my spare time getting high off teaching senior citizens, who had never learned to read….to read.” April W: “I got engaged to a guy who had broken my heart when I was a freshman in college years ago. I never stopped loving him, and when he came back into my life last summer, I was thrilled. His re-appearance coincided with a severe bout of loneliness and I was easily taken in. But when I saw that he wasn’t sincere, and still the jerk he used to be, I dropped him. I was so proud of myself because I had never exhibited that kind of strength before.” MORE

Do you know who you’re with? These women didn’t.
Shari – “I met a guy who seemed to be everything I was looking for in a man physically, mentally and spiritually. And after three months of dating, he asked me to marry him, and I said yes. On the night of our engagement party, his friend pulled me aside and confessed that my “fiancé” was still married to someone else in another state and living with them. This helped explain why his “job” took him out of town four days a week. When I confronted him, he denied it, ran out of the door in a huff and was never heard from again.” MORE

Paying Big To Make The Perfect Match
by Sierra Silverspoon
One of my closest friends, making big bucks got fed up “with all the rejects” from the local dating scene and decided to go the personal matchmaking route. In six months, she spent $8000.00 and met five guys who were supposedly the crème of the crop, as it related to substance and success. Unfortunately, she didn’t match any of them. One was successful but physically unsuitable, and one was a con man looking for a victim. With the remaining three, there was no “chemistry or mental connection.” She was so angry with herself for spending all that money to find a man that she ended up suing the matchmaker to get her money back. She lost and decided after that expensive foray into the world of personal matchmakers to give the job of finding her mate to the Good Lord. MORE
