Bobby Brown sues TV over misrepresentation in daughter’s biopic

Bobbi Kristina’s estate has joined forces with her father Bobby Brown to stop TV One from airing a biopic about his daughter’s short life.

The 48-year-old had already filed suit in a Manhattan Federal Court, claiming the portrayal of him as a bad dad is defamatory.

Bobbi Kristina’s estate has now joined the lawsuit, alleging the biopic violates her right to privacy, which it claimed survived her death at age 22, TMZ  revealed on Tuesday.

CPR performed by her fiance Nick Gordon kept Bobbi Kristina alive and she was placed in a coma for six months until doctors determined that her brain was irreversibly damaged.

 She died in hospice care in Duluth, Georgia.

An autopsy revealed Bobbi Kristina drowned after consuming alcohol, cannabis and a prescription medication used for anxiety or sedation.

Three years earlier her mother Whitney Houston drowned in a bath in her Beverly Hills hotel room, aged 48, due to drug intoxication.

Bobby Brown, who now shares three children with wife  Alicia Etheredge, has already claimed in his lawsuit the movie falsely shows him as violent toward Whitney.

It also suggests that Bobbi Kristina witnessed the alleged abuse. He also claims scenes show him as an unloving father.

The estate and Bobby want more than $2 million in damages and they want the judge to stop TV One airing the show next month.

TV One isn’t backing down. It ‘stands by the film and its representation of this period in Bobbi Kristina’s life,’ the production company said in a statement to E! News.

Singer Angella Kalule appeared on the Big Breakfast this morning to talk about her private video that went viral.

“Whatever, I did that video was for my husband. I don’t stay with him  and that is why I find it necessary to send such messages to him. The eras have changed. I also have certain private videos of him. We do that a lot and that is how we communicate. My family though has been supportive though there are some who are saying they are conservative, how would I have done that. But I pity women who are not doing that for their husbands. Though I am not boasting. What you saw was the Angella in love”, she said.

She refutes claims that was a publicity stunt. Angella also told Jackie and Oulanyah that she apologized because she honours her audience.

Angella also reveals that the video was was let out by someone who wanted to extort her.

The calm sounding singer has stood a taste of time in the Ugandan music industry and is among Uganda’s most respected female musicians.

P.Diddy’s ex-chef accuses him of sexual harassment

Diddy’s rep tells TMZ, “This is a frivolous lawsuit by a disgruntled ex-employee who was fired for cause.”

Diddy made his personal chef whip up meals right after he had sex, and wasn’t shy about showing off his manhood when she entered the room … according to a new lawsuit.

In the docs, obtained by TMZ, Cindy Rueda says she was “regularly summoned” to serve Diddy and his guests while they “engaged in or immediately following sexual activity.” She also says on at least one such occasion, Diddy was still naked when she entered the room, and asked if she liked what she saw.

The suit makes it seem like Diddy was recreating “Caligula” in his L.A. mansion.
She says another time one of his buddies approached her in the kitchen — while he was nude — and asked her to check out his junk.

Rueda says she complained about sexual harassment to one of Diddy’s assistants, and as a result was set up by another staffer to make it look like she’d stolen one of his watches. According to the suit, she was fired with a string attached — if she signed an exit agreement waiving all rights to sue Diddy, she wouldn’t be prosecuted.

She says she refused to sign and was terminated a year ago.
Reuda’s suing for wrongful termination, sexual harassment, and violation of whistleblower protection. We’ve reached out to Diddy’s reps, but haven’t heard back yet.

Comedy star Chris Rock allegedly cheated on his wife with Kerry Washington

Rumors have been swarming Chris Rock lately, ever since he revealed during a comedy routine that he cheated on his ex-wife, Malaak Compton-Rock, with three different women.

Following this publicized confession, sources have since come forward alleging that one of the women he allegedly cheated on his wife with is none other than Scandal star Kerry Washington.

The rumors began swirling following a new cover story with Rolling Stone, with the report quoting that Rock said in a routine, “I was a piece of s**t,” while describing his marriage to his ex-wife. The magazine also added that the comedian “segues into his infidelities and gets disarmingly specific, describing three women: one famous, one semifamous and one a member of the retail class.”

Following this report, a source confided to Page Six, to identify the “famous” woman, claiming it was Washington.

“He was cheating on his wife with Kerry when they were filming [I Think I Love My Wife] about him, ironically, having fantasies of cheating on his wife,” the source claimed. “That went on for a while, for like six months, and she found out. There’s no gray area.”
According to speculation surrounding the alleged affair, it began around 2007, when Washington was engaged to actor David Moscow, with Rock reigniting the rumor following his recent Rolling Stone cover.

Reps for both Rock and Washington have not yet commented on the alleged affair.

Janet Jackson talks about her divorce and resuming world tour

Janet Jackson took to Twitter on Monday night to make several big announcements about her family and her return to the stage.

The new mother kicked off a minute-and-a-half long video by addressing her weight gain, but quickly moved on to gush about her three-month-old son Eissa Al Mana whose picture she recently shared on social media.
“Hey you guys, it’s me Jan, just in case you didn’t recognize me cause I have put on quite a few since I had the baby,” Jackson said. “I thank God for him, you guys. He’s so healthy, so beautiful, so sweet, so loving, such a happy baby.”
She also addressed her separation from her Qatari businessman husband, Wissam Al Mana, saying she wanted to “keep it real” with her fans.
“Yes, I separated from my husband,” Jackson said. “We are in court and the rest is in God’s hands.”
Jackson then announced that she would be resuming her “Unbreakable” tour which she has renamed the “State of the World” tour.
“It’s not about politics,” she said of the name change. “It’s about people, the world, relationships and just love.”
Jackson postponed her tour first in 2015 for surgery and then in April 2016 as she and her husband planned their family.
She confirmed in October last year that she was becoming a mother at 50.
Jackson’s tour is scheduled to resume beginning with a concert September 7 in Lafayette, Louisiana.
The superstar concluded the video by thanking her fans for their patience.
“I am so excited,” she said. “I cannot wait to see you on stage, September 7.”
Tickets for the rescheduled tour dates go on sale May 5.

Tennis Queen, Serena William expecting her first child

The American, 35, is due to give birth in the autumn, says her representative.

The world number two posted a picture on social media site Snapchat, posing in a mirror with the message: “20 weeks”, before deleting it.

Williams will miss the rest of the season, having not played since winning in Melbourne, citing a knee injury.

Williams, who will return to world number one next week, would be eligible to retain her ranking under the WTA special ranking rule if she is ready to play her first tournament within 12 months of giving birth.

Former world number one Victoria Azarenka gave birth to her first child in December and is expected to return to competition at the end of July.

Belgium’s Kim Clijsters, meanwhile, won the US Open in 2009 just 18 months after giving birth to her daughter.

Winning a Grand Slam while pregnant – analysis

BBC tennis correspondent Russell Fuller:

The news would suggest that Serena won the Australian Open while roughly eight weeks into her pregnancy.

We are very unlikely to see her compete in another Grand Slam before the French Open of 2018. That event will take place four months before her 37th birthday – but do not write off a woman who will return to world number one on Monday.

Azarenka is a useful guide. Even though she is eight years younger, the Belarusian returned to serious training in March after giving birth in December and is targeting the WTA event in Stanford at the end of July for her return.

US Open Tennis responded to Williams’ message by saying: “Serena Williams will have a new pride and joy to hug and call her own soon! Congratulations on the exciting baby announcement!”

Khloé Kardashian bashed by Instagram follower over terrible photo touch up

Celebrities and photoshop go hand in heavily altered hand.

It’s not anything new. Even your favorite old school stars had their photos manipulated in some way. Artists would spend hours removing spots and getting rid of wrinkles.

Most people used “retoucher machines,” which backlight and vibrate a negative photo for someone to come in with a pencil and smooth the image out.

So yeah, nobody has ever been perfect. It’s just easier to do it yourself now thanks to computers and handy iPhone apps.

Case in point: the outrage over Khloé Kardashian’s latest Instagram picture — which may or may not be photoshopped, but it certainly looks… different.

If anything, the overly ‘shopped pic will draw a lot of attention to whatever product Khloé is advertising.

That said, whatever comes in that box probably won’t give you the body of a Kardashian — pre- or post-photo editing.

And because it’s the internet, people weren’t afraid to call her out in the comments.

OMG, you guys, you can’t just tell someone they have a weird face.


This is the equivalent of waving your friend over, pointing at someone’s face and asking “WTF?”

This happens to me often…


Some fans are hoping it is photoshopped, because they are concerned about Khloé’s health.

This… I guess is kind of a nice thought?


Her transition into a witch is almost complete, as she has started to terrify the villagers.

Next step? Candy house in the middle of the woods, for some reason.


Larries’ (multiple “Larry”) Bitch can’t believe what she is seeing.

But this isn’t even the first time Khloé has photoshopped a picture.

In May of 2016, her fans called her out for photoshopping the image on Instagram, and she responded by uploading the original, unedited picture.

 

Kardashian fessed up she edited the image because of a car accident that occurred when she was 16. She said,

Singer Qute Kaye takes burdens to the Lord

Faded Ugandan musician Qute Kaye has been reborn.

Famous for his single, “Ginkese”, Kaye has decided to turn away from his sinful ways and give his life to Jesus Christ.

He made the life-changing decision on Thursday as he sought salvation at renowned Pastor Robert Kayanja’s church, Rubaga Miracle Centre.

This happened at the ongoing crusade by Pr. Kayanja dubbed “77 Days of Glory”.

The singer revealed that his hunger for fame and money had led him to do despicable things including visiting shrines and witch doctors where he made sacrifices.

However, he has had enough of that life and is now seeking new beginnings.
