Indiana sports fans will never forget Stephen Jackson’s name. You may remember he was one of the Indiana Pacers involved in the now infamous (and arguably justified) Malice at The Palace brawl when a Detroit Pistons fan threw beer, chairs and other things on him and his teammates while he was on the court.
But now, his name is in the headlines once again, this time for a more personal matter. Jackson has asked a judge to dismiss his wife’s petition for a divorce because he’s still blowing her back out.
Naw, he didn’t say that. I’m just very fond of that phrase. But the general message is still the same. In legal documents obtained by TMZ, Jackson said that the judge shouldn’t grant the divorce because his wife, Renata Jackson, is just attempting to collect a prenup payout even though they still do the things married couples do.
Jackson says that under the terms of their prenup, the payout she’d receive would be based on his net worth at the time when she initially filed for divorce in 2013. He was playing in the NBA at the time so the sum to be dispersed would be much greater than his current net worth, now that he’s left the league.
Jackson’s documents state that the marriage wasn’t over when she filed in 2013 and isn’t over now because they’re still having sex…on a regular.
Not only are they having sex, Jackson, who married Renata in 2009, said that they still take vacations together. They’ve been to the Bahamas, Cancun and Jamaica.
In the documents, Jackson’s attorney concluded “Despite filing for divorce, [Renata] continued her relationship with [Stephen] in an effort to ‘have her cake and eat it too.'”
I don’t know what is truly motivating Renata but, unlike several of the commenters on the TMZ article, I was not surprised by the fact that she is still sleeping with her estranged husband.
It happens all the time. If you watched “Married At First Sight,” you saw Vaughn and Monet bicker and fight with each other all throughout the day only to get it all the way in once they went to bed. Despite their sexual chemistry, they still ended up getting a divorce.
There was a whole movie, starring Meryl Streep and Alec Baldwin, where a divorced couple couldn’t seem to stop having sex with each other, though they both knew a relationship between the two of them would never work out.
My own mother, in a rather random moment of confession, told me and my sister that should she and my father ever get divorced, she would still have sex with him. Primarily because she knows him and he knows her and she wouldn’t be ready or even interested in building and sharing that type of intimacy with another person.
While I’ve never been married, I can understand the mentality. We all know sex doesn’t equal love. And, to take it a step further, loving someone doesn’t mean you should be together. So with that in mind, I can certainly see how a woman would want to continue sleeping with the man she loved, knew and was comfortable with, even if the relationship is over on paper.
It doesn’t make the best sense in the context of healing and moving on but we’ve all done some pretty stupid things either the name of love or in the name of scratching an itch.
And in the instance of Stephen and Renata Jackson, it doesn’t seem like either one of them really want a divorce. It would be one thing if Renata was just letting Stephen get a little goodbye taste every once in a while; but the fact that she’s vacationing with dude, makes me think a part of her wants to work it out. Do you know how terrible it is to vacation with someone you can’t stand?!
As for Stephen, even though he claims that Renata is just trying to get at his money, he still doesn’t want the judge to grant her a divorce.
These two are funny. And hopefully they come to some type of agreement.
But back to you, would you consider sleeping with an ex or an estranged husband?
“I Waited For Him” Amber Rose On Wanting Wiz To Grow Up, Why He Called Her A ‘Foul Creature’ And Her New Boo
After Wiz talked his ish all on Twitter, Amber Rose, who actually has a couple of things to promote, has made recent appearances on Hot 97 and most recently The Breakfast Club. And in the latter, she opened up about everything from waiting on Wiz to grow up and come home, even after she filed for divorce, to James Harden, the NBA baller she’s currently dating and even why Wiz was going off on her via Twitter.
See what she had to say.
Wanting to work it out
Of course. He was the love of my life. It wasn’t over for me for a long time. I cried it out. I cried a lot, like all day, everyday. I cried and cried and wanted him to come home. He’s young and has a lot of life to live and now that I’m done crying, all the girls don’t bother me anymore.
I’ll never say never because he’s the father of my child and he’s still technically my husband. And I’ll always love him. But right now, I’m not with that sh*t…It’s like ‘Dude, that’s not you.’ That’s not the man that I know. But apparently that’s who he is now and I don’t want to be a part of that.
Why she filed for divorce
Amber: When something irrational happens to you, you then act irrationally and that’s why I filed for divorce so quickly. He was just changing. You all know, Wiz isn’t a bad guy…great spirit, that’s why I married him.
Charlemagne: Wiz is a young rapper, he’s allowed at least three hall passes…
Amber: What if he…
DJ Envy: …used them up.
Yee: Do you think you changed at all in the marriage?
Amber: For sure. I became a mother. I’m not at the club every night downing shots. My priorities definitely did change.
Why Wiz called her a ‘foul creature’
Amber: Because he was mad. He was mad that I cut Sebastian’s hair. My son has a lot of hair and he’s a strong little boy. So I always try to deep condition his hair in the back when he lays on it. And he’s not having it. And by him sleeping on it was starting to get matted in one spot. And I couldn’t get it out. He wouldn’t let me brush it or comb it or nothing. I was like this boy needs a haircut. Cam obviously wanted his hair to be long but the boy needed a haircut. I’m not going to walk around with my son having a dread in the back of his head.
Envy: That’s the problem. You got to talk to him before you take your son to the barbershop.
Amber: I did!
Envy: But you did it anyway.
Amber: But my son was in pain though. He was going ‘Mommy, mommy.’ He was pulling it, it was hurting him. That’s my baby. I’m not going to see my son in pain.
Which explains this tweet:
Amber: You know you get petty when you’re still in love with someone.
Her friendship with Blac Chyna
Amber: I ran into her at the mall in L.A. I was a little nervous about being friends with her because she was friends with with Kim.
Charlemagne: So you don’t rock with Kim?
Angela Yee: Duh! She was sending naked pictures to Kanye and she asked her to stop, when they were dating, and she didn’t stop.
Amber: That was years ago, I think we’re all off that now.
Charlemagne: Don’t nobody care about naked pictures of Kim. Everybody got those.
Amber: I was nervous at first with Chyna but when we started talking…she’s just an amazing girl. The thing I love about Chyna, to this day, is that as many times as she hung out with Kim, she never came to me and told me anything bad about Kim. So I feel like she wouldn’t do that to me. Her and Kim’s relationship didn’t work out.
Yee: Because of Tyga I’m sure.
Amber: She’s always said that Kim was a very nice girl. It really doesn’t have to do anything with Kim. It’s just a very awkward situation.
Amber: I have a valentine this year.
Yee: Is it James Harden?
Amber: Me and James have a very special friendship, for sure.
Charlemagne: You put your pussy on James’ side burns.
Amber: Not yet. I didn’t get the D yet. I’m not going to lie. But Valentine’s day is tomorrow. If he acts right…
Charlemagne: Wiz going to roll up a blunt thiissss big….
Amber: I met him in Vegas a month ago and we just had a conversation…when I met him we just developed a really nice friendship.
Back to Wiz
Amber: I waited at home for him for a long time. I waited, and I waited and I waited.
Envy: So you would have forgave him?
Amber: Yeah. I did. I already have.
Envy: You have a tattoo of Wiz on your arm. Are you going to cover it?
Amber: I’m not in a rush. My son sees that on my arm and he’s like ‘Daddy.’ It’s not really a big deal for me.
Charlemagne: I got a feeling that you’re waiting for Wiz to grow up.
Amber: I want to! Ideally, I would want him to come home and we could start over. But now, I’m kind of at the point where…you know, I waited for him. I did. Even after I filed and everything, I still waited for him to come home. He just didn’t. He never came home. And there comes a point where I can’t be lonely every night. I can’t sit around and wait for him to grow up. I just can’t. I have to move on.
Yee: Does he ever flip flop though and send you text messages like ‘we need to start all over’?
Amber: He has but he still ain’t never come home. And that’s something that I had to deal with. Like I said, I cried a lot. My heart was broken. Thank God I had Chyna with me every single day and my assistant and my mom to talk me through it. I just listened to a lot of Alanis Morisette. A lot of Trina. God bless you Trina.
Charlemagne: If y’all do get back together, it’s going to be hard if you stack up a higher body count.
Amber: Didn’t I just tell you I waited for my husband? I’d been waiting for him. He didn’t come home. So now, if I have a Valentine that’s a really nice guy, that treats me nice, if I want to get the D, Ima get the D. Trust me. That’s it.
Envy: Get that D!
Tyga and Kylie
Amber: She’s a baby. She needs to go to bed. It’s 7’o clock. And relax. Nah, I’m over that. That’s ridiculous. He should be ashamed of himself. That’s how I feel for sure.
Yee: What happens if you run into them in LA?
Amber: I ain’t speaking to them. At all. He has a beautiful woman and a baby and left that for a sixteen year old that just turned seventeen. Nah.
But guess what, that’s up to her and her mother…
Listen, I really don’t hate those girls but I just don’t respect them.
Charlemagne: Why don’t you respect them because a lot of people would say some of the things you guys do are similar?
Amber: It’s really not though. Because if I want to have my titties out on the beach, that’s exactly what I’m going to do. I’m not going to have my titties and be like ‘Oh my God I can’t believe they caught me…’ It’s just fake to me. She’s such a beautiful girl and she has the potential to be really dope but, to me, she’s not. It has nothing to do with Kanye.
Charlemagne: Do you think she and Kanye are a good match?
Amber: They are a match made in heaven for sure.
Charlemagne: I heard that you broke up with him.
Amber: I definitely left Kanye for sure.
Even though I grabbed all the juiciest parts for y’all, I strongly suggest listening to the whole segment. In it she talks about how she keeps her face looking right. Her new book, How To Be A Bad Bitch, where she discusses all the mistakes she’s made in her life and career and more.
For some couples, the hearts, chocolate and violins of Valentine’s Day help them celebrate their wonderful relationships; for others, it just reminds them that their relationship is a big, fat lie. Here are 15 celebrity couples who broke up on Valentine’s Day.
Even though Wiz Khalifa was just saying how his baby mama is fine and she acknowledged that she would like to work on their marriage, based on his most recent tweets, it seems like that ship has sailed.
Last night, Wiz took to Twitter to talk about how foul it is for a woman to keep a man’s child from him. And since he and Amber have a child together and they no longer live under the same roof, it wasn’t long before we assumed he must have been talking about his soon-to-be ex wife Amber Rose and their son Sebastian.
Here’s what he had to say.
a woman who would do something to a kid to spite that kids father is a foul creature.
— Cameron (@wizkhalifa) February 4, 2015
Then, just forty minutes later, it seemed the situation had changed.
Seen my boy. All is well.
— Cameron (@wizkhalifa) February 4, 2015
Well, people who had been following his tweets assumed that since he had seen Sebastian the beef was squashed and Wiz and Amber could get back to this much desired resolution. But Khalifa shut that down with a quickness.
And all my ladies said, “Ouch!”
Then he continued:
That's pretty much the only thing that can spin my universe out of control.
— Cameron (@wizkhalifa) February 4, 2015
Sucks when people try to use that against you but the cool part is figuring out how much self control you have.
— Cameron (@wizkhalifa) February 4, 2015
as long as he's playing and smiling i'm cool. can't be pissed when i see that handsome face.
— Cameron (@wizkhalifa) February 4, 2015
i tell him everyday that this is all his.
— Cameron (@wizkhalifa) February 4, 2015
I don’t know what’s going on with these two. But I would sincerely hope that Amber Rose is not maliciously keeping their son away from his father. I don’t know her or anything but she just doesn’t seem like the type of person who would do that, particularly when she’s stated, publicly, that she’ll always love him and she would like for them to get back together. But things change quickly. Perhaps Amber got the hint that he wasn’t trying to reconcile and is trying to punish him for it. Really though, I find that incredibly hard to believe.
At the end of the day though, this seems quite embarrassing. Amber’s using social media to express her love–aside from initially revealing the affair–and Wiz is using the same vehicle to say he’s over it.
It just makes me sad.
“Make Wise Decisions Now So You Won’t Have To Pay For Them Later” Kevin McCall Laments Missing Daughter’s First Birthday
Now that there seems to be a custody battle brewing between Eva Marcille and Kevin Mccall, we hear about their drama every week. And it’s mostly Kevin’s doing. Judging from his social media presence, Kevin wants the world to know that he thinks his baby mama is fine, and doesn’t want her liking pictures from other artists, and would like for them to work out some type of custody agreement…or at least some type of visitation for his daughter.
And this weekend, the drama continued. While Eva, her family and friends were celebrating her daughter Marley Rae’s first birthday, McCall was nowhere to be found. And it wasn’t that he was missing from pictures, Kevin made a point to let his followers know that he wasn’t invited and wasn’t allowed to attend. He wrote about it, posted pictures and then regrammed every picture Eva posted from the day with captions of his own.
Since it was a joyous occasion either way, we’ll share Eva’s photos and then Kevin’s commentary underneath, plus a few pictures of his own he shared, lamenting his predicament.
Today is a the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it!!!! One year ago today the Lord saw it fit to bless me with life's most precious gift, my Marley Rae. May life be good to you my princess and when it's not may God give you the strength and courage to stand righteous through the storm. You are my life, my joy and peace, nothing and no one has changed my life and given me a defined purpose like you. I promise to work every second being all that I am called to be, only then will I be the best mommy for you. Celebrating your first year of life is by far my largest accomplishment to date, and I am so honored to have been chosen by God to be your Mother. Happy Birthday my Baby Girl💋 #marleyrae
Kevin’s IG posts:
Perhaps anticipating there would be pushback for him attending the birthday party, this is what Kevin posted before the event. Take note of the location he included in the post.
The saga between Soulja Boy and Nia Riley has been long and drawn out. We witnessed it on “Love and Hip Hop New York” and then again on various social media sites. In case you missed it, here are a few key moments from what we’ve seen of their relationship.
– Nia knows that Soulja Boy has cheated in the past but sees the potential in him and wants to make it work.
– Soulja Boy is still young and wants to have fun. He throws a birthday party for himself at the house and Nia gets mad that he didn’t tell her he was doing so. She thinks he’s still behaving as if he doesn’t want to mature and be active in helping her raise her daughter.
– Nia had a miscarriage and, on camera, Soulja Boy offered absolutely no support.
– Nia was in a car accident and Soulja Boy realizes he doesn’t want to lose her.
– On the reunion, Nia says she’s not stupid and realizes that Soulja Boy is still probably still sleeping with other women.
And even though the two have broken up a time or two, as recently as this past Christmas, they were all booed up.
But today, Soulja Boy and Nia are definitely on the outs. How do I know? The same way I know when any celebrity breaks up, they put it on social media.
Here’s what Soulja Boy tweeted early this morning.
Wompity, womp womp. I really wish I were making this up.
I see Soulja Boy is on his Chris Brown steez…but a bit worse.
Listen, I empathize with Nia, quite a few of us have a story about dating a man who was not only immature but was downright disrespectful at times. But even with that being said, I still want to shake the hell out of her whilst screaming “Leave him alone!” And that’s the short, expletive free version.
Soulja Boy’s name literally says it all. He is a child…a very young child. A toddler perhaps.
Yeah, Soulja Boy deleted the tweets but every celebrity knows the screenshot is real…and swift. Anyone who would disrespect someone he claimed to love is just not someone you want in your life or your child’s, for that matter.
I don’t condone violence or anything but I wouldn’t fault Teddy Riley for “reaching out” to this clown and letting him know what he will and won’t do as it refers to his daughter.
Looks like the battle between Jason Derulo and Jordin Sparks is far from finished. This week when Jordin had a sit down interview with Angela Yee and then The entire Breakfast Club, she spilled a bit more tea about her breakup with Derulo. Even explaining that when they were done with each other, he wouldn’t even come retrieve the car that he’d given her. And since he was being petty or irresponsible, she drove the car back to the dealership and left it in the lot…because, according to her, it was leased anyway.
Well, honey after his own extensive media tour, discussing the breakup, we should have known that Derulo wasn’t going to take that lying down. And since it’s Jordin’s turn now, the singer took to Instagram to “prove” that Jordin was lying about him leasing the car he gave to her.
He posted a bill of sale on his Instagram page with the following caption.
Notice how he made sure to @ mention Jordin and all the members of The Breakfast Club. Lol Petty Patty.
As some of you may know, only a title can undoubtedly prove ownership. So this may still be irrelevant. And many people flocked to his page to say so and suggest that’s what he post. They also let him know that he’s lame for trying to drag Jordin this way.
So what does Jordin think about all of this?
She’s basically unbothered. Right around the same time Jason posted this little piece of unvalidated evidence, she posted a series of crying laughing emojis and then liked The Shade Room’s repost of Derulo’s photo.
Are you surprised to see these two going at it like that, especially when Jordin tried to take the high road in the beginning?
Thankfully, Ciara’s social media pages are not on trend. And by on trend I mean they don’t look like the pages of a public figure who’s undergoing a very public and presumably messy breakup. And that’s a great thing. I know I’m appreciative of all those adorable pictures and videos she posts of her son Future.
But just because she’s taking the high road on social media, doesn’t mean she isn’t keeping it real in her art.
In a new song called “I Bet,” the “Body Party” singer is telling it all…in ballad form.
Check out some of the very telling lyrics.
I love you but I won’t be a fool for you.
That is just something that I wouldn’t do
I mean, I would stay if you could tell the truth
But you can’t
No matter how much time I ask
Is that your bitch over there?
Giving me the ugly stare
The one with the silicone ass
And the Brazilian hair
You ain’t gon’ respect me
Until I’m not there.
And then the chorus
I bet you start loving me, soon as I start loving someone else
Somebody better than you…
And y’all that was just the first verse. There are plenty more revelations in the rest of the song. Plus the entire track is laced with an undercurrent of shade as there is a Future sound-a-like throughout the song.
But just when you start to think this is just a song about her airing out Future’s dirty laundry, at the very end she asks, basically, why it had to be like this.
I hate that I’m singing this song
Because I love you
Yeah I love you
Right now it’s killing me
Cuz now I have to find someone else
When all I wanted was you
Dang! Even though Future and Ciara had a whirlwind relationship, she still believed that they were going to get married and spend the rest of their lives together. It sucks that she has to go through this. But luckily she learned the truth about his character before she walked down the aisle.
Take a listen to the full song in the video below.
Nicki Minaj Reacts To Safaree Stepping Out With Another Woman: “I Hate To See People Tormented And On The Verge Of Going Crazy Because Of Their Pride”
Yesterday, many of us were giving Safaree Samuels the serious side-eye after he was spotted by the paparazzi arriving at the BOA Steakhouse in West Hollywood with model Candice Brook. Nicki also attracted some side-eye action of her own after she posted a photo of herself with rapper Meek Mill, which only fueled rumors that the two are romantic. Apparently, Nicki wasn’t too thrilled about her ex stepping out with another woman so soon because she took to Instagram with a lengthy post addressing his actions. Her post reads:
“You can’t find happiness with bitterness, hate and forgiveness in your heart. You owe it to yourself to find real peace. Why do ppl feel they have to be ‘ok’ all the time? It’s ok to NOT be ok. You’re human. I hate seeing people be tormented and on the verge of going crazy because of their pride and their ego and because they made a bed they never thought they’d have to lay in.
If you were on your death bed tomorrow, none of the ppl you do all this fronting for would be there. You can’t try to hurt a person whose heart is right and who showed you the meaning of loyalty. It’s better that you do some soul searching and live in GRATITUDE. Realize how blessed you were and learn from your mistakes. Sometimes the more you do for ppl, the more they think they’re entitled to! Just fall back and ask God to show them the truth. Once you have forgiven and learned how to find true peace, the most you can do is wish the next person well and pray that they too will find the same thing. I’m hoping that 2015 will be a year we choose real happiness over the fake made up stuff we think people want to see.
Every night, the lights and cameras stop flashing and there you are. It’s just YOU. Laying there. Facing the music. Cherish these nights. Cherish these ppl. Life is a movie, but there’ll never be a sequel. And if you didn’t cherish them in time, own that. Hope you feel better.
Her words were accompanied by this photo message:
Again, it really sucks that things have come to this. I can’t understand for the life of me how two people who carried on such a private relationship can have such a public breakup.

The holidays are a time for togetherness but instead of spending Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year’s with each other, these celebrity couples called it quits.
Chris and Malaak Compton Rock
Chris and Malaak Compton Rock have been married for almost two decades but just days after Christmas, the comedian announced that he and his wife had decided to separate. Rock filed for a divorce and in court documents he has requested joint custody of their two daughters. This isn’t the first time the “I Think I Love My Wife” star and Malaak decided to break up. Rock filed the papers for a divorce back in 2006 but the couple reconciled. The 49-year-old funnyman has been rumored to be dating his “Top 5” co-star Rosario Dawson.
