Actress Sanaa Lathan has been a Hollywood staple since the late ’90s. While she has maintained consistent work since leaving the theater world behind and relocating to L.A., Nathan has kept her private life mostly private. The 42-year-old Best Man Holiday star dated football player Adewale Ogunyele for a few years but other than that, Lathan has kept her dating life to herself. A few months ago, she shared a photo of herself and San Francisco 49ers’ Colin Kaepernick out together on a romantic dinner date. No word on if the two are a couple or if it was just dinner with a friend.

Some stars have been with you since puberty or earlier. You might’ve heard one of their well-crafted verses when you experienced your first kiss , or nodded along sadly to one of their well-sung ballads after your first break up. Or, perhaps, you watched a certain film that uplifted you every single time, and you grew fond of the person cast in the lead role. Yes, these artist/actors found a neat place in your heart… that’s why it’s shocking when all of sudden they just disappear from the scene. They were killing it in their heyday, laying down track-after-track of generation defining hits, or they leading astounding roles in incredible movies, then they turned on ghost mode? Some of these celebrities quietly faded to into the background, while others disgracefully slide into oblivion, like Lindsay Lohan.
Tiger Woods was at the top of the world of golf for a long time, before it was discovered that Woods was spreading his seed around to every cheap piece of flesh that would have him, which ultimately destroyed his career, his marriage and his life. The Tiger days are now over.
This past summer we reported, 50 Cent’s ex-girlfriend, Daphne Joy, accused him of domestic violence and destroying her property during a fight. Luckily for him, he struck a plea deal that will allow him to avoid a future behind bars.
According to TMZ, 50 was charged with one count of misdemeanor domestic violence and four counts of misdemeanor vandalism. Allegedly he caused $7,100 in damages. During his trail, 50 pleaded not guilty and the judge ordered him to turn in his guns and stay away from his ex-girlfriend who is also the mother of his second child. 50 cent’s attorney told TMZ, 50 was able to create a deal with the prosecutor to get the charges dropped by pleading no contest to the one count of misdemeanor vandalism.
50’s sentencing includes three years of probation and 30 days of community service. He has also agreed to receive counseling and pay Daphne back for the alleged damages he caused.
Do you think 50 Cent should have received a stronger sentencing?
It really sucks when one of your favorite artists releases a good album, and then decides to take their sweet time releasing a follow-up. Sometimes it can be blamed on a sabbatical, not liking the direction of their new music, or an artist simply just playing games. No matter what the reasoning behind such delays, for fans, it can be maddening, especially when folks (and their reps) keep saying it’s on its way. Enough with the lies! Just drop the music already! Here are nine examples of albums we’ve been waiting on and yet they still haven’t seen the light of day (and some probably won’t).
50 Cent is known for starting fights on Twitter, but he appears to have utilized Instagram to instigate his latest social media brawl. His target? An ex-girlfriend of Floyd Mayweather, who goes by the name of Queen Princess. While it’s unclear triggered the Queens rapper’s attack, he kicked off his parade of insults by sharing a photograph of the woman and writing the words: “THOT Alert” onto the image. Oh, and for those of you wondering what a “THOT” is, it’s just another slang term frequently used to describe a woman who makes her rounds. In the image’s caption, 50 accused the woman of hooking up with both Floyd and his good friend Ray J.
“I GOT FLOYD, I GOT RAY J At the same damn Time,” he wrote.
The insults only continued when the 38-year-old rapper shared a photo of Ray J with a caption that read:
“@Floydmayweather don’t feel Stupid some of them belong on a TRACK that’s all”
To add insult to injury, 50 shared a message that Floyd recently shared via his Instagram page, which many believe is about QP.
“When you take a broke person out of the slums and give them a chance at bettering themselves, in due time, their true colors will eventually reveals itself. That’s why they say, leave trash in the garbage for bums to dig through because you will find yourself hanging around garbage so much, you’ll forget how rotten it is,” Floyd wrote.
Messy, messy, messy. 50 has got to be one of the biggest celebrity cyber bullies on the ‘net. QP has yet to respond to 50′s verbal lashing.
He may still be in prison finishing up a 18-month sentence for possessing a gun with a felony conviction, but Young Buck has some reason to celebrate. He is about to emerge from bankruptcy.
“The trustee overseeing the Nashville, Tenn.-based rapper’s bankruptcy liquidation recently filed her final report in the case, which raised $391,331.59 to pay creditors. Most creditors aren’t getting paid in full, while some aren’t getting paid at all,” reports The Wall Street Journal.
In July, the Internal Revenue Service auctioned off the possession of Young Buck, whose real name is David Darnell Brown, and raised $53,000. Young Buck went into bankruptcy due to a tax debt. “The G-Unit member issued two bankruptcy filings after racking up thousands of dollars in tax debt this past summer,” reports Vibe.
Among those who won’t be seeing a penny from Young Buck is his former friend and boss, 50 Cent. The rapper, his G-Unit record label and Universal Music Group, who are the exclusive recorders, publishers and distributors of Young Buck’s music, are no longer on the creditors list. “A bankruptcy judge zeroed out the claims of 50-Cent and G-Unit, while the amount of Universal’s claim remains unresolved. No matter—it’s unsecured, so it won’t likely get paid anyway,” reports the WSJ.
Fifty had loaned Buck $300,000, and there was an outstanding balance of $171,000, reports TMZ. G-Unit Records was seeking $10 million.
Also most likely getting paid are general unsecured creditors owed $137,775.99. This group of creditors can only get paid if all senior creditors are paid in full, which probably won’t in this case, reports WSJ. These unsecured creditors include Hendersonville Medical Center,various utilities, individuals, auto lender Ally Financial as well as an additional New York state tax claim.
The government is among those who will get paid. The IRS will receive all that it is due for unpaid income taxes, a$42,699 claim. But it will only recover $22,575.25 (or 87.52 percent) of a separate $25,793 claim.
The New York state tax department and Davidson County Criminal Court—which sentenced Young Buck following his 2011 arrest—will also get 87.52 percent of their respective claims of $26,914.73 and $868.31.
Besides the auction, money also came in from to performance royalties ($230,720.91) and writing royalties ($124,115.89), and the rapper’s “personal services” raised another $19,960. So messy!
Many feel all great artists get their inspiration from other great artists but there’s a thin line between using someone’s song as a muse and outright ripping them off. These 15 musicians have been accused of stealing another artist’s music.
R&B singer Alicia Keys took a break from making music to start a family. Returning to the scene with a brand new image and a new album, the New York native lit up the charts with her single “Girl On Fire.” Too bad the song that helped re-launched her career would lead her right into a courtroom. Songwriter Eric Shurman has accused the “Foolish” singer of using his 1962 song “Hey There Lonely Girl” that was used by Eddie Harmon for her hit song. Last December Shuman filed a lawsuit against Keys, who is now a girl getting sued.

You know when a celebrity starts to make money, its all in the smile (literally). So many celebs transform their look with dental veneers, which is always done with the intent to improve their smile. However, dental veneers can either come out really nice or really bad, see who has the best and worst celebrity dental veneers.
With all the drama on Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta K. Michelle’s smile does bring some sunshine to the show. Without veneers the songstress may not have the flawless style she exudes, so she definitely has some of the best veneers.
50 Cent is not happy about a recent ruling against him and it may not have anything to do with money.
According to TMZ, 50 recently lost a lawsuit he filed against Sleek Audio. He said the company owed him $261,00 but they disagreed with that. In the end, an arbitrator sided with Sleek and it is assumed they had to pay considerably less money.
But 50 is not taking this ruling lying down and is in the process of appealing it. In a new claim that he’s taken to federal court, 50 says the arbitrator (whose name has not be identified) sided against him because he’s black, associates with controversial black figures and because he’s a rapper.
In addition, 50 claims the arbitrator never looked at any of his evidence and didn’t cross-examine any of the witnesses. He wants the ruling thrown out and is asking for a brand new hearing.
Sleek Audio says 50 is reaching with this claim and is trying to get his way, which would be a trial in front of a judge.
No word on when the federal court will hear this case and make a ruling. If what 50 says is true, he may have found a way to get a new hearing, whether it be in front of a judge or a new arbitrator.
Believe it or not, what celebrities do or say can have an affect on their travel plans. For instance, these stars have been banned from foreign countries, either permanently or for a period of time, for acting out in one way or another.
Snoop Dogg/ Lion
He may have been reincarnated and born again as Snoop Lion, but back when he was Snoop Dogg, the California native was banned from the United Kingdom. Traveling through London’s Heathrow Airport with an entourage of five, Snoop and his boys caused a ruckus when they weren’t admitted into British Airlines’ first-class lounge. Apparently that, and his criminal record, were enough to issue a lifetime ban for Snoop. He’s also been banned from flying British Airlines as well.
