Splitsville! Did Karrueche Tran Finally Dump Chris Brown?


chris brown and karrueche

Looks like Karrueche Tran is finally over Chris Brown‘s antics with ex-girlfriend Rihanna. Rumor has it that Chris and Rihanna hooked up yet AGAIN….this time at NYC hotspot Griffin, but what makes it even more scandalous, is the hookup continued in the bathroom with numerous onlookers watching it go down.

According to Media Take Out, Rihanna, walked into a private bathroom in the club and Chris followed right after. They reportedly locked themselves in the bathroom for “a long time” while their security guards stood outside the door. Finally, Chris left the bathroom first with Rihanna following looking clearly “disheveled.”

Karrueche took to Twitter, to let Chris and the world know that she’s OVER IT!!!

Life is too short to be anything but happy.

there’s a difference between a man and a boy.

I prefer men.

 At this point, I’m so tired of this love triangle, I wish Chris & Rihanna would just admit that they’re back together and let Karrueche stop pretending she’s in a relationship with Chris.

Kanye West

It was only a matter of time before it was announced that Kanye West has a sex tape. He is dating Kim Kardashian, after all. It’s like they can smell it on each other. Ew.

Anyway, the tape, which we’ll now refer to as KanyeGate from now on, runs about 20 minutes, and features a Kardashian look-alike, which just means he’s been kind of obsessing about her all along… which is creepy and just like, ew. Filmed in a hotel room, Kim 2.0 makes it very clear that she’s of legal age in the beginning of the tape — jailbait is just not okay.

“My husband and I don’t have sex anymore… that’s why I’m here!” confesses Kim 2.0 during KanyeGate, because when in doubt, make a sex tape with a rapper. We really hope her husband never saw the vid, and actually kind of wish we knew more information about all of that. It’s just as juicy!

RadarOnline viewed KanyeGate in its entirety and confirms that it is indeed West, and also mentions that he’s aware he’s being filmed, as he’s the one who set up the camera and stares into it just before shutting it off! Maybe he has being a director in his future?

A San Fernando sex industry insider (apparently that’s a thing) offered insight on the vid, and says it was filmed shortly before West got with Kardashian. “The sex tape is being shopped right now and there’s a lot of interest, but Kanye is freaking out! He doesn’t want this tape out and will do anything to make sure it stays private,” said the insider. “If this were to hit the market it would be worth a fortune… there would definitely be a lot of people wanting to see this! In my expert opinion Kanye’s performance far outweighs Kim’s!”

The insider also mentions that West was near tears when he heard the video was being shopped around. It’s okay, though, because we’re sure mama Kardashian will find a way to make bank off of it.

Nobody Else Can Do What I Want You To Do. That’s Why I Created You

By Lana Moline

Post image for Nobody Else Can Do What I Want You To Do. That’s Why I Created You

Perhaps you are growing weary as the person who everyone looks to for encouragement or a kind word. I know I’ve certainly seen those days but here’s what I know. Only you can be you. I had the privilege of speaking to a friend who is gifted in hospitality but over the years she had grown tired for various reasons. Along with that she became a little unhappy and couldn’t figure out entirely what the source of it was. After honest soul-searching she discovered that it was in part due to not doing what it is God designed her to do. She shared with me that by giving in to those feelings of weariness she realized that she was punishing herself.

I hadn’t thought about it that way but that is so true. That spoke to me because I am quick to offer a word of inspiration as often as I can but I will admit that sometimes it doesn’t always make its way to my door exactly when I need it, it takes its sweet time but it does come. It was comforting to hear that someone else experiences the same thing I do because we often feel like we are on a deserted island but that’s not true. So I too have decided not to punish myself and continue to offer as much encouragement and kindness as I can as often as I can because that’s how God created me. There’s a Tramaine Hawkins song where she sings “nobody else can do what I want you to do that’s why I created you.” That reigns true for both you and I. Continue to do you!

Chad Johnson Refusing to Sign Divorce Papers?

*TMZ is reporting that Chad Johnson has no intention of divorcing his estranged wife Evelyn Lozada. According to sources close to the couple, he’s refusing to sign any of the divorce documents.

Lozada, star of VH1’s “Basketball Wives,” filed for divorce three days after Johnson allegedly head-butted her during an argument. The incident that led to his arrest and Evelyn receiving stitches.

Sources close to Chad tell TMZ that he won’t sign the docs or participate in any divorce proceedings because he doesn’t want to get a divorce. Chad, according to the sources, still believes he can win Evelyn back, as evidenced by the fact he recently tattooed her face on his leg.

But Chad’s plan isn’t exactly bulletproof  — under Florida law (where Evelyn filed the docs) the divorce can still be finalized with a judge’s approval.

Sources tell TMZ Evelyn is hellbent on making this divorce happen and nothing Chad does will get her back. According to sources, she’s ready to move on and rebuild her life.

Is Your Relationship Low-Key Or On the Down Low?

I had the pleasure of being a guest on the R & B Podcast hosted by Lincoln Anthony Blades of the popular This Is Your Conscience blog. We had a really interesting laid back conversation (as always) chopping it up about everything from event planning to my thoughts on threesomes (your cue to check it out).  In the midst of our spirited conversation we touched on the topic of low-key relationships. The podcast was recorded on Saturday and the topic reverberated in my head for the entire weekend. This was after an exciting whirlwind of cocktails, fresh fruits and other distractions.

I learned during our dialogue that keeping relationships low-key is typically a male preference. Low key for the purpose of our discussion today is simply a preference for intimate encounters with minimal to no social media attention operating on a need to know basis. Down low refers to this classic R Kelly Isley Brothers track.

At this stage in my life and for a good portion of my dating life I’ve always preferred the Beyonce and Jay-Z approach, dropping little hints here and there, teasing, but never really getting into the raw dog details of my romantic relationships at any one time. They really had the media twitching for a good minute didn’t they?!

Is Your Relationship Low-Key Or On the Down Low?

I have stories, every day I work hard to create them believe me, but I respect any one I chose to date and carefully select what to share and what to keep under wraps.

9 times out of ten women are uncomfortable with low-key relationship because they feel as though a man is trying to hide them from the world. The fear is that they may end up in that side chick role, heading for a “just bag the face” demotion. I understand the concern and admittedly I’ve been in relationships that were not really relationships because of this factor *sigh* however this assumption is usually far-fetched especially if the man has not said, “I’m not looking for a relationship” or, “we just chillin”.

My reason for wanting a low-key relationship is so that he and I can build a foundation based upon respect and intimacy on our own terms before we ever publicly announce the relationship. The minute a relationship goes “viral” is the minute the strength of it will be tested and generally speaking men seem to understand this more than women *kanye shrugs*

Get your weight up before the Facebook relationship status change, before the parental introductions, before talks of the titles and rings. Who are we? What do we stand for? What will we NOT stand for? Do we respect each other?

It’s up to us (yes that includes you!) to take initiative at maintaining intimacy and therefore a balanced level of privacy in our love lives. Especially in world where people are murdered and abused over Facebook beef- Really though?! That’s enough of my two cents, what is your take on low-key relationships? Are you more comfortable with the red carpet approach or would you rather keep the good news to yourself?

P.S It’s also important to understand the difference between low key and down low. Skipping out of town and hiding from your partner’s spouse or significant other in crusty motels in seedy parts of town is not low key it means you’re on the side-If that’s what tickles your fancy by all means happy hiding.

It’s Awkward Family Photo Time! Snooki and Jionni Pose With Baby Lorenzo

Lorenzo appears to have slept his way through his first photo shoot with mom Snooki. Thanks goodness for that!

By Lucia Peters

Snooki Jionni Lorenzo LaValle

It was inevitable: Now that Snooki’s little meatball, Lorenzo Dominic LaValle, has been on the planet for more than a week, she and fiancé Jionni LaValle are releasing a set of super posed photos of their new family. Awkward and uncomfortable? Sweet and adorable? You tell us!

The full photo spread, which was shot on September 1, will be available for all of us to gawk at in this week’s issue of People, due out on Friday. In the meantime, though, MTV has gotten a hold of a sneak peek, giving us our first non-Paparazzi look at Baby Lorenzo. To be fair, it’s a surprisingly tasteful photo; true, Snooki is wearing leopard print, but a) at least it’s a little less tacky than the usual Jersey Shore animal print getup, and b) thank goodness she didn’t put baby Lorenzo in a matching leopard print onesie. Jionni’s role in the photo seems to be to provide a pop of color, because of course it wouldn’t be a photo of Snooki if there wasn’t a piece of hot pink something somewhere in the picture.

MTV is currently asking who we think Lorenzo looks like more, Snooki or Jionni. Honestly? I can’t tell. The kid is a week and a half old. Babies don’t really look like anything (other than babies, that is) for a while, so I think it’s a little too soon to be playing that game. Don’t you?

Anyway, Lorenzo appears to have dozed his way through the shoot, which is probably just as well; maybe his lack of concern about the cameras means that he’ll be able to handle life in a fishbowl. We hope for his sake that it does!

How To Deal With Your Child Back-To-School Jitters

By Elev8 Staff

Going back to school can be a really exciting time for children – new teachers, different learning environment, and everything has a fresh feeling to it. However, for some children, it can be a time of stress and anxiety. Change doesn’t come easy to all children and sometimes they just need a little bit of encouragement in order to succeed in a new classroom. How can you help your child make the right transition to a new school year?

child walking to school

Try to understand their fears. Put yourself in their shoes and try to remember how you felt at their age. Starting a new grade in school can be scary, no matter what age you are, but it eventually feels normal with time. Even if you’ve never experienced their nervousness firsthand, it’s a natural feeling and they just need the encouragement to move forward. By giving them the reigns to “jump in” to this new experience, yet also providing them a safety net, children can feel protected yet in control of their own lives. Strength through family can be all they need to get through the anxiety. However, it’s their inner strength that makes this transition possible, so they need to feel like they’re doing it on their own in the long run.

Be there to support them. Depending on their age, they might not want to ask for help because they want their independence while growing up. However, if they need you, let them know that you’re there if they need to talk, even if it’s clear they’re keeping their nervousness about grades, friendships, etc. private. Every year in school can be stressful, yet familial support can be the rock that keeps children in school. Keep that in mind, parents – listen to your children in order to be their guide!

Kim Kardashian tries out what looks like a wedding dress, but is marriage to Kanye West in the cards?

Kardashian, 31, isn’t officially divorced from Kris Humphries yet, but her new look from high-end fashion designer Emilio Pucci is sure to fan the flames of speculation.

If wedding bells are ringing again for Kim Kardashian, she’s already got at least one dress.

The 31-year-old reality star, who wore three gowns when she wed NBA player Kris Humphries last year, struck a pose in another floor-length, white number on Tuesday night.


Kardashian shared the Instagram snap with her nearly 16 million Twitter followers, prompting rumors she’s ready to tie the knot with beau Kanye West.

The buxom brunette captioned the photo, “Late night fitting #pucci,” presumably a nod to high-end fashion designer Emilio Pucci.

“I hope that’s a wedding dress,” a fan commented on Instagram.


Others worried the backless, embroidered gown wasn’t appropriate to wear down the aisle.

“Please don’t say that’s a wedding dress,” another Instagram user wrote. “And yes, if you were my best girlfriend, I’d say the same.”

Kardashian’s camp hasn’t commented on the prospect of marriage with West.

Despite her relationship with the rapper, Kardashian’s divorce from Humphries, to whom she was famously married to for just 72 days, is not yet finalized.

Humphries, 27, is pushing for an annulment of the marriage on the basis Kardashian never intended the relationship to last, and only had her sights set on money and fame.

A hearing is set for Nov. 28.

Rihanna on ex-boyfriend Chris Brown: ‘We love each other and we probably always will’

The ‘We Found Love’ singer says it wasn’t the 2009 assault that ended her relationship with Chris Brown, but rather the couple’s youth.

The passage of time, a plethora of tabloid stories, and numerous barely masked tweets later, Rihanna claims that she still loves Chris Brown — always has and always will.

The “We Found Love” singer expressed nothing but compassion and a kind of wistful regret as she talked about her relationship with her former beau on Oprah Winfrey‘s “Oprah’s Next Chapter” Sunday night.

“I think he was the love of my life,” she told the talk show host. “He was my first love and I see that he loved me the same way. I truly love him. The main thing for me is he’s at peace. I’m not at peace if he’s not happy or he’s still lonely. I care. It actually matters that he finds that peace.”

Rihanna, 24, and Brown, 23, were both on the rise in the music scene and were quickly becoming one of the industry’s golden couples when Brown physically assaulted her in February 2009, leaving her bruised and bloody.

But the singer credits the demise of their relationship to youth, not to an isolated incident.

“We were very young and very spontaneous,” she said of their problems. “We were falling in love and going at a really rapid pace. We forgot about ourselves as individuals.”

The Barbadian beauty even says that she felt concerned over the media fallout that Brown had to face afterward, though she was the victim in the situation.

“It became a circus and I felt protective. I felt like the only person they hate right now is him,” she said. “It was a weird, confusing space to be in because as angry as I was, as angry and hurt and betrayed, I just felt like he made that mistake because he needed help.”

What ultimately happened, she tells Winfrey, is that she learned to forgive the “With You” singer and move on, though it took some time.

“I’m single, but we have maintained a very close friendshpi since the restraining order has been dropped,” she said. “It’s not easy.

“I thought I hated Chris and I realized it was love that was tarnished. It looked like hate becuase it was ugly, it was angry, it was inflamed, it was tained and I realized that what it was is, I have to forgive him, because I cared about him still.

“And the minute I let go of that, I started living again.”
