The past couple of months, Master P and his wife’s name has been plastered all over the blogs. Percy and Sonya Miller have been detailing the dissolution of his 25 year marriage to Sonya Miller. And though he’s said some inflammatory things to TMZ and his son Romeo has commented, we really haven’t gotten the full story from Master P. Well, today on the Wendy Williams Show, he sat down and told it all. He apologized to his wife for some things, explained why he missed his custody hearing and even spilled the tea on an upcoming Master P biopic, if you haven’t noticed, they’re all the rage these days. Check out some of the highlights from the interview, transcribed below and the full video at the bottom of the page.

 

Apologies and claims of drug use

Wendy: You’ve been married to Sonya for 25 years. This is the same girl who was with you when you were scrapping two rocks together trying to build something.

Master P: I think that people got to realize that in a relationship, things happen, people grow together or they grow apart. She definitely was there. We ain’t been in a relationship in seven years. And I’m not mad at her, I love her. She’s my kids’ mother and we have to take care of our kids forever. I think what people need to realize is when lawyers come into play, and you know, you got lawyers who don’t know your business, or don’t know where you come from, they play a big effect.

I want to apologize to her, to be honest with you, because I’m not perfect, nobody’s perfect but I’m at a good stage in my life right now. I don’t have a right to say whatever she needs to do. That was just me kind of like, getting back… if somebody says this about you, knowing I been taking care of somebody for twenty something years, it kind of hurt a little bit. But at the same time, I feel like in my life, it’s about my kids, it’s about our kids. Whether we never be together, we gotta take care of our kids.

 

W: Sonya claimed she was on welfare and living with Romeo, is that true?

MP: Stop listening to all that stuff. I’m just saying, if she’s living with Romeo, that mean she’s living a beautiful life. Let’s be honest. If our relationship don’t work, she has her son Romeo, who’s successful, she will be alright.

 

W: You said that if she could pass a drug test, you would give her anything she wants.

MP: Not only her family but my family, we’re trying to break that cycle with drugs and alcohol. I think a lot of people don’t know that it breaks up a lot of families, it destroys a lot of families. But that’s not my right to say that and I realize that. So like I said, I want to apologize to her for that because I don’t have that right, I’m not God, I’m not perfect. And I realize that whatever she gotta do, she has to figure it out. I can’t change nobody but me, she can change herself.

 

Losing Custody 

MP: When you have daughters, like my other daughter, I’ve been having problems with the other girl and my other daughter, her older sister, she’s about to be eighteen. I’ve really been trying to spend a lot of time with them because they say in a relationship, girls really play off of their father and so I really want to spend a lot of time with them and that’s what I’ve been doing. But you know what, it’s not about custody, I’m going to take care of my kids.

W: I heard you didn’t go to court because you were at your 15-year-old daughter’s school, talking to the principal and vice principal because her grades are terrible, she’s been missing a lot of school and she’s a little out of control.

MP: She’s out of control. But when you’re a celebrity, I can’t do what my dad did with me. My dad put the belt on me. When I got acting bad…that’s what I really want to do but then I’ll be back on–somebody said “P did this.” Sometimes you do need to be chastised. I’ve been with her, I’ve been going to the school on my own, dealing with principals and saying you know what  ‘You’re a smart girl, you’re beautiful, you need to get it together in school because that’s all I’m asking you to nothing else but  do your school work.’

Whatever she deserves, she’s going to get it. I have no problem with that. But you know in life you move. Like I said, you either fall in love or you fall out because of communication. I think at the beginning, we never really had the proper communication. I was young, trying to make it. We came a long way. I got a brother dead, I got a brother in prison.

 

W: How is C Murder by the way?

MP:Well, you know we’re praying for him. He didn’t do this but all the other stuff, where he comes from, it follows you and that’s what I try to teach my kids. You gotta know when you walk out that door, anything can happen. So, you gotta be prepared. And I think education is a big part of it. Education saved my life. I went to college. That was the most important thing for me.

 

The Reality Show

Wendy explains that she was trying to say that she doesn’t think Master P shouldn’t put his family drama on reality tv.

MP: Well, the difference with me, that I feel like right now, is that my life has been a big secret. People never got a chance to see how the Millers really live. And this is a fun show, as a single father raising his kids. It’s funny. We’re going out traveling, doing things, showing our life saying where we come from. We come from the projects and we want to motivate kids all across the country to say, ‘P did it, we can do it.’

 

W: It’s going to be uplifting like Tiny and T.I.?

MP: Uhhh…

It’s all of us getting our lives together. I’m focusing on my kids right now. People always talk about African American fathers, they aren’t there for their kids. And whatever we go through,  I’m always going to be there for my kids.

 

His Biopic

MP: It’s coming. 2015, Master P: The Ice Cream Man, the movie is coming. On the big screen. We’re looking for somebody to play me right now. You’ll see our life where we started. My grandfather was a big influence in my life, my dad my grandmother. You know I had choices to make in my life, I remember I’m in the projects with Romeo, he’s one-year-old. I’m listening to Ice T’s “Colors” ‘I’m a nightmare walking, psychopath talking’ and my grandmother saying ‘Boy, turn that music down.’ And I’m thinking to myself, if I didn’t change my life, Romeo wouldn’t be the big, superstar actor he is now.

 

Have Chris Brown And Karrueche Broken Up Again?

Just a few months ago, the Internet was buzzing with rumors that Chris Brown proposed to Karrueche from prison. Now, not even a few months following his release, we’re hearing breakup rumors. Instagram lurkers have recently discovered that just after spending Independence Day together, both Chris and Karrueche took to the photo sharing site and erased all of the recent photos that they had posted of one another. Karrueche has also been posting subliminal messages about knowing when to let go—including a reshare of a Budha quote that she posted last December.

Strangely, just before their word of their rumored breakup began circulating, Chris shared a revealing photo of Karrueche lying in bed wearing a bra and thong set to his Instagram page—a gesture that seems a bit disrespectful if you ask us.  It’s also unclear what could’ve sent their relationship south so quickly. Last week at the BET Awards, Karrueche told us that she and Chris were in a very happy place.

“I’m just happy he’s home and that he’s not in that state of mind anymore,” she said. “We’re happy. You know, he’s working and I’m working. You know, right now we’re in a good place in our relationship.”

So far, representatives for Chris and Karrueche have yet to confirm or deny the rumors. But if things are off like they appear to be, it’ll probably only be a matter of time before the two are back together.

Robin Thicke Dedicates Another Performance To Paula Patton: ‘I Miss You And I’m Sorry’

Robin Thicke is still determined to “Get Her Back.” Her being his estranged wife, Paula Patton, of course. Just a few weeks ago, we told you that the soulful R&B crooner publicly apologized to Paula during his Billboard Awards performance of “Get Her Back.” He did something quite similar at tonight’s BET Awards.

“Good Evening, my name is Robin Thicke,” a solemn Robin said at the start of his performance. “I’d like to dedicate this song to my wife. I just want to say that I miss you and I’m sorry.”

He then began to sing another song off of his new album, “Paula,” titled “Forever Love.” It was a very heartfelt performance. We can’t help but wonder what Paula thinks about all of this.

Of course, Chris Rock had major jokes once the performance concluded, but at this point we doubt Robin cares about who’s clowning him. One of two things were probably on his mind tonight:

1. Pushing his new album

2. Actually getting his wife back.

Either way, it was a great performance.

Watch: Floyd Mayweather & Shantel Jackson’s Awkward Post-Breakup Encounter

Watch: Floyd Mayweather & Shantel Jackson's Awkward Post-Breakup Encounter

Shantel Jackson and Floyd Mayweather arguably had one of the most volatile breakups of 2014. As you may recall, the public was made aware of their split around the time that Shantel went public with her new relationship with rapper Nelly. Apparently unhappy with Shantel’s decision to move on, Floyd took to the Internet with medical papers believed to be Shantel’s and told fans that he broke up with the model because he learned that she aborted their twin babies.

For the first time since their split, the couple ran into one another at a BET Awards pre-party last night. The encounter was very awkward as to be expected and to make things even more interesting, the exchange was captured by TMZ.

When Floyd realized that Shantel was at the party, he tried to get her attention to say hello.

“Don’t be like that!” Floyd yelled across the room to Shantel who we’re guessing ignored him.

On the other side of the room, cameras captured Shantel having her pathway blocked by a woman who was more than likely trying to keep the lovers-turned-enemies apart. Interestingly, just before entering the party, Shantel spoke with a TMZ cameraman about Floyd giving her the name “Miss Jackson.”

“Of course my last name is Jackson, but it was given to me by my ex significant other,” she told her interviewer.

Witness the awkward encounter below.

‘I’d Rather Be Physically Cold Than Emotionally Cold:’ Rick Fox And His Young Girlfriend Call It Quits

Rick Fox and his girlfriend, actress Eliza Dushku have decided to throw in the towel after nearly five years of dating. It’s unclear if their split was amicable, but the “Bring It On” actress recently revealed that they decided to go their separate ways due to their conflicting desires to live on opposite coasts.

“Rick’s an LA guy and I’m a Boston girl,” the 33-year-old told The Boston Globe.

Apparently, Eliza could no longer tolerate the Los Angeles lifestyle. After leaving Rick, she decided to purchase a condo near her hometown in Massachusetts.

“Nobody in LA has a basement,” she said. “They all have the obligatory storage spaces in the Valley.”

As it turns out, basement-less houses aren’t the only thing that Eliza won’t miss about Los Angeles. She says she could do without the “emotionally cold” residents as well.

“I’d rather be a little physically cold here than emotionally cold in LA,” she said. “I missed my town and I missed my family.”

We’re not really sure if Eliza considers Rick to be one of those “emotionally cold” LA folks, but something seems especially cold about their breakup. Rick also confirmed their split this week during an appearance on “The View.”

“I’m single,” the “Hit The Floor” actor told Sherri Shepherd.

Rick vaguely spoke about marriage during his relationship with Eliza, but it’s unclear whether or not he ever had solid intentions of actually marrying her.

“You don’t go 20 months…without talking about marriage,” Rick told E! Online back in 2010. “I’ve been married before, so we definitely talk about the truth of what marriage is about. I’m not gunshy about marriage, even though I failed. I failed at it the first time, so my next opportunity will be one where I’ll be honestly more experienced and intelligent about it.”

Well, that’s that I suppose.

‘You Should’ve Told Him Not To Slip Up!’ Christina Milian Seems To Be Hinting That Jas Prince Was Unfaithful

Being a celebrity can suck royally. Complete strangers often feel at liberty to comment on personal matters, such as breakups. Last week, we told you that Christina Milian and fiancé, Jas Prince, parted ways. Though a reason was not initially given for the split, the singer and actress recently struck back at an Instagram follower who advised her to stay with Jas and fight for their relationship.

“I know one thing, you better still be with Jas. He seems like a good guy who really loves you and Violet. Don’t slip up,” the follower wrote.

A clearly unamused Christina responded:

“I’m not. You should’ve told HIM not to slip up. But everyone’s really caught up in what they see only on Instagram. I can make everything ‘appear’ perfect to the works, but my truth is still the truth.”

From the outside looking in, it seems like infidelity could’ve been a cause for the couple’s demise. But honestly speaking, “slip ups” aren’t just exclusive to cheating. Despite the unfortunate news, Christina appears to be maintaining a positive mindset.

“Stay focused. Learn your lessons. Have No regrets. Get your life together. #EverythingWillBeOkay,” she tweeted late last week.

Keep your head up, Christina!

How NOT To Break Up: A Little Bit Of Dignity And Respect Goes A Long Way

For the past couple of weeks, messy headlines that tell of the love train known as Floyd Mayweather, Shantel Jackson, Nelly, Ashanti, Tae Heckard, Brandon Jennings and Teyana Taylor have been shared across media outlets. While so much can be said about the über eventful love lives of these well-known people, there are also plenty of lessons to be learned. One of those lessons being, how NOT to break up.

Floyd Mayweather and ex-fiancée, Shantel Jackson, made news after he attempted to embarrass Jackson by uploading medical paperwork to Instagram, accompanied by a caption that pointed to an abortion as the reason for their split.

“The real reason me and Shantel Christine Jackson @missjackson broke up was because she got a abortion, and I’m totally against killing babies. She killed our twin babies.#ShantelJackson#FloydMayweather#TheMoneyTeam#TMT.”

Shortly after, the boxing champion released a dated photo of Shantel and joked that he wanted a refund for all of the cosmetic surgery that he paid to have performed on her.

“…@missjackson Before all the plastic surgery I had to pay for. I’m an Indian giver I want my money back LOL…#PlasticSurgery #TMT,” he wrote.

Despite the seemingly misplaced LOLs tacked at the end of his messages, his antics reeked of a heartbroken man who lacks a constructive way of dealing with his feelings. He was hurt that their relationship didn’t work out (and possibly that she terminated her pregnancy), and since he was unsure whether or not she was feeling the same way, he set out to inflict pain on her as well. He sought to publicly humiliate and degrade her, possibly hoping that he would feel better after the fact. But in the end, it’s highly unlikely that he did. It’s believed that Shantel’s recent revelation that she’s romantically involved with Nelly is what sent Floyd over the edge. But in the end, he only made himself look bitter, vindictive and emotionally unstable. Blasting or attempting to “expose” an ex after a breakup is rarely, if ever, the move.

But Mayweather isn’t the only offender here when it comes to how not to break up. There’s also something to be learned from the actions of Detroit Pistons star Brandon Jennings. In case you’ve already checked out of this messy web of love and lies because it’s way too much to digest, allow me to catch you up to speed. Jennings and Teyana Taylor were an item, off and on, for nearly six years (according to her timeline). The two were even allegedly engaged. Recently, Jennings began claiming actress and model Lashontae Heckard as his new girlfriend, and even fiancée. Problem 1: Heckard was actually a friend of Taylor’s. Problem 2: According to Taylor, Jennings began to seriously downplay their relationship on social media once he got with Heckard.

“On Twitter he said he’s been single for three years,” Teyana said during a recent interview. Brandon knows, the world knows, I know that we were engaged. That was very public. We were engaged at the Madea premiere.

I feel no real man should ever downplay anything, whether it’s me, his baby’s mother, anything. Don’t downplay your past relationships to build a platform. If she loved you for who you are or liked you for who you are, then she’s gonna like your regardless. You don’t need to downplay me. I was disappointed. I felt betrayed because of everything we’ve been through on and off for six years.”

Some speculate that Jennings simply wanted to get back at Taylor for ending their relationship, while others speculate that he made their relationship seem insignificant to make his new lady feel secure. Either way, trying to diminish or downplay the role a person once played in your life simply because things didn’t work out is also a really immature thing to do.

Breaking up has always been hard to do, but there’s no reason for it to get so ugly. The name calling, taking to social media, and downplaying the roles of the person you once couldn’t get enough of isn’t necessary–and you’re not fooling anybody. Maturity is everything. And if your ex is the one seeking to get a rise out of you, remember this quote from Rachel Wolchin: “Maturing is realizing how many things don’t require your comment.” Get it? Got it? Good.

What do you think? What are some other things that people should avoid doing after a break-up?

Rita Ora Talks Messy Rob Kardashian Split & Rumored Affair With Jay Z

When Rob Kardashian and Rita Ora split up back in Dec. 2012, he sent a clear message that this was not an amicable breakup. The troubled reality star blasted his singer ex-girlfriend on Twitter, going as far as accusing her of cheating on him with 20 different men.

“She cheated on me with 20 dudes while we were together, I wonder how many she will sleep with now that we apart. I mean 20?!” he tweeted at the time. “How can a woman who is so busy trying to start her own career have time to be with so many dudes all while in a relationship?!?!”

“I’m actually disgusted a woman could give up her body to more than 20 dudes in less than a year’s time while trying to start a career.”

During a recent stay in New York, Rita stopped by Power 105.1 where she had a chat with The Breakfast Club about Rob’s public meltdown.

“I’m still waiting,” she said in response to Rob’s allegations. “I’ll let you know when I [do have sex with that many people]. But I didn’t.” “What I think is that people react to things differently and like to express their feelings in certain ways,” she continued. “I don’t tend to use social media. So when that whole situation happened, silence for me is the biggest form of flattery. And I love to keep it moving unless I need to say something.”

For quite a bit of time following their split, Rob’s life appeared to be on somewhat of downward spiral. And apparently some folks have been blaming Rita his recent misfortune—including the large amount of weight he has gained since the split. Rita, however, says she has nothing to do with it.

“Why is everyone blaming that [on me]?” the “Fifty Shades of Grey” actress questioned. “Look, I don’t want to talk about this too much because people move onward and upward. But you know, it was a phase. It was a moment in my life. And you know, now it’s onward and upward.”

Speaking of controversy, Rita also discussed rumors that she’s beefing with fellow RocNation artist Rihanna.

“First of all, I love her,” Rita reasoned. “I think she is dope. And all these kind of comparisons, it’s kind of pretty flattering. But I know it’s not that. Being from London, there is only so much that you can learn about this [person] from this side of the pond. But it’s better to be compared to [Rihanna] than being compared to Shrek or somebody.” “It’s rumors. It’s all rumors,” she continued. “Good thing is though, I’m own my own thing, she’s doing her own thing. We don’t need to watch what each other is doing. We just do our own thing.”

As for those pesky rumors that she’s carrying on a secret affair with Jay Z, Rita says:

“Don’t you dare disrespect Beyoncé like that ever again in your entire life.. You should know better than that. That’s just straight up disrespect, you can’t even go there. That’s not even a question.”

Another celebrity couple is throwing in the towel…

According to TMZ, Melika Payne, wife of “Martin” actor Carl Payne Jr., filed for divorce with the L.A. County Superior Court last month. It’s unclear what ruined the couple’s 22-year marriage, but Melika cites “irreconcilable differences” in her filing.

Melika’s decision probably doesn’t come as a huge surprise to her famous husband, as the couple has been legally separated since 2012. She is requesting sole physical custody and joint legal custody of their son. Melika is also requesting spousal support from her actor husband.

The estranged couple tied to knot back in 1992. They have been legally married for twenty-two years, but legally separated for two of those years.

The Wedding Is Off: Big Sean Confirms Split From Naya Rivera

Yesterday we told you about a few rumors that were circulating about a split between Big Sean and fiancée, Naya Rivera, after he reportedly confessed to being unfaithful. As it turns out, those rumors may only be half-true. A representative on behalf of the Detroit rapper has confirmed to TMZ that the wedding is indeed off, but they insist that the “recent rumors and accusations” about him cheating are completely false.

A source claiming to be close to the “Beware” rapper says that he called off the wedding weeks ago because Naya was way “too controlling” and had serious jealousy issues in regard to the women he met and worked with while on tour. Meanwhile, on the other side of town, Naya was busy typing up a furious tweet accusing Sean of stealing from her.

0409-naya-rivera-tweet-3Sources close to the couple say that Sean did in fact take a Rolex from Naya’s house, but it was the Rolex that he purchased for himself when he became successful. According to reports, he gave it to Naya to hold, not to keep. So when the jig was up, he took it back.  As you may recall, Sean and Naya announced their engagement after just six months of dating. Knowing Sean, we can probably expect a few detailed songs about their relationship and breakup pretty soon. However, in the meantime, while we wait, I guess we can cue that song Naya released a few months ago dissing Sean’s exes.
