‘What Lie Y’all Gon’ Tell Him When His Daddy Ain’t There?’ Tiffney Cambridge Files Restraining Order Against The Game
We’re not 100% sure what’s going on here, but we can only hope that these two can amicably work things out for the sake of their children.“Doing the best I can not to break.. But it’s funny how someone you’ve done so much for can be so ugly & cruel as to keep my children away from me vindictively because I’ve decided to move on with my life. I love all 3 of my kids more than life itself & it’s one thing to keep me away from them.. & them away from me but @harlemcarontaylor hasn’t seen his younger brother or sister in a month & just texted me ‘Dad, how come Justice can’t come to my house’ & I have to lie to him because he’s to young to understand the real reason why. I know they ask about me, I know they love me & I know they miss me as much as I miss them but were not allowed to see each other & for what ??? As if I haven’t been there for them everyday since the day they were born…. They are the only reason I care about breathing another day on earth… They are the sole reason I have become a better person… They are the reason I give back, the reason I help people & the reason I wake up everyday with a smile on my face. Most importantly… They are MY CHILDREN & we deserve to be in each other’s lives forever. What kind of person would get in the middle of someone’s devoted fatherhood when there are countless women out here that are raising there children on their own with no one to help. You would think a father that loves his children the way I do would be the least bit appreciated & not have to beg someone to see his own children. I have worked so hard at being a good parent only to have it taken away by someone who cares not about me, nor the welfare of our children but only about themselves. All of this just so you can keep me away from Justice on his birthday. What lie y’all gone tell em’ when his Daddy ain’t there ? Like I have been the past 6 birthdays ? The past 6 Christmas’s ? The past 6 years of a son’s life whom got his name from a father that patiently awaited his arrival here into this world ??? & Cali….. I’m not gone even start.. I will end this by saying…. Daddy loves you…. Misses you… & will always be here no matter what happens !!!! I am a REAL FATHER.”
Whether or not a woman is required to give back the ring following a broken engagement is a debate that has always garnered mixed feelings. While some feel that a woman should absolutely give the ring back if the couple never makes it down the aisle, others disagree. But if you ask former “Name That Tune” producer, Sandy Frank, he’ll tell you that the woman is totally obligated to hand the ring back over.
According to the New York Daily News, the 84-year-old producer is suing his 66-year-old ex-fiancée, Patricia Berg, for the $300,000 engagement ring that he proposed to her with in April of 2009. In the lawsuit, Frank says that the 7.23 carat, cushion-cut diamond ring was never returned when the couple broke off their engagement just four months after his proposal. His attorney Suzanne Bracker argues that Berg and Frank had “a very short-term relationship and he was extremely generous to her;” however, the ring was “conditional gift” that should have been returned.
“He was a gentleman and she should behave as a lady,” Bracker continued. “A lady does not keep what does not belong to her.”
It’s not really clear why Frank waited so long to sue over the ring, but since his broken engagement he married another woman. That relationship, however, didn’t seem to work out either. In 2010 the former couple found themselves in criminal court in relation to an incident where they threw drinking glasses at one another. Unsurprisingly, they later divorced.
Do you believe the engagement ring should be returned if a couple never makes it down the aisle?
Last month we told you that Hollywood “It” couple Robin Thicke and Paula Patton announced that they were separating after nine years of marriage. Since their initial announcement, Robin has made it clear that he refuses to let his marriage go without a fight and has been carrying on a rather public campaign to “win” his wife’s heart back. Just yesterday footage surfaced of Robin at yet another concert, sending what is being perceived as a subliminal message to his estranged wife about family and forgiveness.
“We gotta learn to forgive each other, learn to love each other,” he said to his audience. No matter who it is in your family or relationship … ’cause you’re always gonna need your friends and family.”
According to TMZ, Robin’s pleas haven’t fallen on deaf ears because multiple sources who are close to the situation now claim that Paula is open to giving the 37-year-old singer another chance. Interestingly, sources go on to say that it’s not Robin’s public declarations of love that have Paula reconsidering the split, but more so what he’s been doing behind closed doors that has really captured her attention. For one, insiders say that the “Lost Without You” singer has been spending a lot more time with the estranged couple’s 3-year-old son, Julian. It has also helped that he’s been keeping in touch more while he’s out on the road. As a result, their conversations have shifted from divorce talk to what changes Robin needs to make to improve their marriage. Sources add that their phone conversations are now productive, “smooth and cordial” and that Paula has no plans of hiring a divorce attorney.
While we’d love to see Paula and Robin back together, we won’t get our hopes up until they confirm their reconciliation.
Would you like to see these two get back together?
Your friends will tell you that with each waking day after a breakup, the pain will get a little smaller. And they’re right…unless you’re doing these 7 things and basically prolonging your own heartache!
Jayson and I dated about four years ago and we were a glorified fling at best. Many of our dates consisted of takeout, me cooking up a plate of his favorites, movies and lots and lots of affection. But I wasn’t mad at the limitations to our hangouts. Jayson made me laugh, he was great to look at (I’m admittedly shallow) and he treated me with respect. He definitely had a soft spot in my heart. He was special. I was the one who approached him initially when we first met.
He was working at The Art Of Shaving and I walked by with a friend of mine. I spotted him immediately. He was immaculately dressed. I’m talking, a sharp suit, tie, complete with a silky pocket square. This brother was debonair enough to make Billy Dee Williams insecure. I stopped in my tracks, walked back to the store with my girl hot on my heels, calling my name, “Danielle!”
“Girl, did you see him?” I asked strutting back to the store. “I’m just gonna go say hi.”
She laughed, “I fully support this movement,” my friend said as she walked in the store behind me.
His smile lit up the entire store, “Hi, my name is Jayson. Welcome to The Art of Shaving. How may I help you?”
It took everything in me not to say a corny line you’d hear in a silly romantic comedy, “I’m looking for a gift for my dad,” I lied and grinned from ear to ear. My homegirl shot me a look of approval and kept pretending to browse the store.

ShouldYou wouldn’t mind reconnecting If you feel like homeboy might be the one that got away, by all means go ahead and reach out. Striking up a conversation with a man from the past and the fear of rejection can sometimes make you nervous but holidays have a way of softening people. This would be the perfect time to put your feelers out there. If you’re lucky his response will shed some light on whether or not he’s still interested.
“It just didn’t fit into the part of the film because you got to understand when we did this – telling our story – it’s from the beginning. The people in our lives in the beginning were the people that you saw. So as time went along, Usher didn’t have – I don’t know our relationship wasn’t so significant when it came to my group,” Chilli said during an interview with The Jasmine Brand.She went on to say that the romantic relationships that were referenced in the movie were only highlighted because of their relevance to TLC.
“That [Dallas Austin] was a different story because he was our producer. Tionne got married – and really we didn’t even go on her marriage because the fact that she was told that she could never have kids and she had Chase – then it made sense for you to kind of touch on that a bit. So with more so, what we were really dealing with was the most important part that we wanted people to see. All the other little things, who we dated here and all the other loves in our lives, to me it just didn’t make sense to put in there; so it wasn’t like it’s intentional, it just wasn’t necessary,” she continued.
“I don’t want to – I’m going to be honest with you. The whole – I still to this day don’t understand – don’t get me wrong, Usher and I are friends. We’re cool. People are so caught up in that whole Chili-Usher thing and it’s just like everybody’s just caught up in but we’re not. So it’s like the movie was about the TLC story, it’s our thing. It doesn’t mean it’s everybody and it wasn’t about having a conversation with anybody to tell them they’re in it or not.”As for the ongoing drama involving the group’s former manager, Pebbles Reid, and her displeasure with the way that she was portrayed in the film, Chilli says they actually held back some things that could’ve been included in the movie.
“Personally, all I know is that she knew from the beginning that we were going to do the film – I told her myself. At the end of the day, when it comes to legal matters, there’s no way Viacom would have did this movie with us and risked getting sued by anybody including Lisa. So basically everything we put in there was true – it was not a lie. We actually softened a bit of some of the situations – we didn’t even go in for real. But it’s like I’m not keeping up what’s going on with her, what she said because it doesn’t matter to me. It doesn’t matter to my group member. At the end of the day, we told our story and I’m happy that we’re able to tell our story because it’s something that I’ve wanted to do for a very very long time.”It seems like the back and forth between Pebbles and TLC could drag on and on forever. Turn the page for audio from her interview. What do you think of Chilli’s explanation for excluding Usher from the movie?
Just yesterday we told you that the wife of famed producer Timbaland filed for divorce after just five years of marriage. Unfortunately, it looks like Master P’s wife, Sonya Miiller is singing a similar tune.
According to TMZ, Sonya is petitioning for a divorce from her music mogul hubby after twenty-four years of marriage. Court documents reveal that Sonya is claiming that the marriage is broken due to “irreconcilable differences.” She is requesting full custody of their four underage children. In addition to full custody, Sonya is requesting spousal support.
What’s interesting though, is back in 2011 many thought that the couple had already divorced because Sonya took her estranged husband to court for child support. It turns out that the former couple has been separated for a very long time, but up until recently, neither made steps towards actually filing for divorce. In addition to their four minor children, they also share 24-year-old son, Romeo Miller. The pair have yet to publicly comment on the split.
They’ve been together for a very long time, hopefully they can find a way to handle the divorce amicably.
Unfortunately, K.Michelle’s hot and steamy romance with Indiana Pacers shooting guard, Lance Stephenson, was a short-lived one. The “I Just Wanna” singer regretfully announced the split on Twitter.
I’m single. Ill explain later. I have to do what’s best for me. ❤

If it doesn’t make you smile, know when to walk away. There’s only so much a heart can take. No one deserves to be lied to and cheated on.

Determined not to waste any time sulking, the Love & Hip Hop star was sure to let fans (and most likely Lance) know that she was going to be out and about enjoying herself.

Just a few weeks ago, the Memphis reality TV personality spoke about helping her gal pal Ellle Varner through a tough breakup with her Knicks-playing ex, Iman Shumpert.
“I mean, I’ve known about the breakup for a minute now… I’ve known about this breakup and yes, we have been talking and spending time together,” she said.“I mean, I’ve known about the breakup for a minute now. I just haven’t been on Twitter. I’ve known about this breakup and yes, we have been talking and spending time together.” – See more at: http://madamenoire.com/305235/k-michelle-talks-coaching-gal-pal-elle-varner-breakup-iman-shumpert/#sthash.kO4CDpwf.dpuf
Though it sucks that she has to endure another heartbreak, something tells me she’s already written or at least thought of an album worth of songs inspired by their relationship. In other words, she’ll be turning this negative into a positive by exchanging her pain for album sales—Taylor Swift style.
