Late last year
, there were mumerings that Ginuwine and Solé had quietly filed for divorce.

But that wasn’t the full story. In actuality, they were still working on the terms of their split. Though the couple have been living separately since 2013, according to an exclusive from our sister site Bossip, Solé just officially filed on April 20, 2015, less than two months ago.

The 41-year-old former rapper turned vegan yoga instructor, Solé, whose real name is Tonya Lumpkin, submitted a contract that both she and Ginuwine had signed six months ago. In it, the two determined alimony, division of property and child support.

According to the contract, which was obtained by Bossip, Ginuwine will pay Solé $150,000 lump sum in exchange for her giving up their $1 million dollar home in Maryland. Solé will get the couple’s home in Kansas City, Mo. He also agreed to pay her $3,000 a month in child support for the couple’s two children together, Story 14 and Dream 12. Neither asked for alimony.

The contract, which both of them signed, states that Ginuwine will also turn over his 25 percent stake in Spruce, a Missouri-based LLC that teaches life skills to the developmentally disabled.

Bossip reached out to Ginuwine for a comment and he said that despite the upcoming divorce, he and Solé are still a team.

“I really don’t want to get into it, but we’re good. We’re friends and we’re good. We’re going to raise our kids separately and we’re good.”

It’s really nice to see that they’re handling things so amicably.

When Nicki Minaj first started speaking about her breakup from longtime boyfriend Safaree Samuels, she told Angie Martinez that infidelity was never an issue in their relationship. But as the world kept turning, the story about their demise began to shift.

After Nicki heard that Safaree had released a breakup song, “Love the Most” she wanted to make sure that he didn’t come out looking like an angel. She told him to tell the truth about the reasons why their relationship ended and she brought up the fact that he cheated on her.

Recently, TMZ caught up with the up and coming rapper and asked him to clarify those claims.

“It’s a two way street, you know. I’m not perfect. Nobody’s perfect.”

Then the reporter asks Safaree does he believe Nicki didn’t want to share the limelight or didn’t want him to be as successful as she is.

“No female is going to want it to change outside of the coming, playing the back. Ain’t no female going to comfortable with you trying to go after something else.”

As a female woman, I can say that’s certainly not always the case. But afterward, Safaree explained that he’s moved on.

“I’m happy now. I couldn’t be happier. I didn’t put the song–it’s not a diss song. It’s not trying to air nothing out. It’s just me explaining where I’m coming from. Ain’t trying to beat nobody down or nothing like that.”

Alright…these two are getting on my nerves now. Who really knows what to believe when the stories are so inconsistent?

The best course of action, at this point, would be for them to stop talking about each other, since they both claimed they’ve moved on.

You can watch Safaree’s comments in the video below.

Nicki Minaj is not happy about her ex-boyfriend Safaree Samuels‘ new single, “Love the Most”, and she was sure to take to social media to let that be known.

In a series of tweets, the rapper-turned-actress seemingly accused her ex of cheating on her and taking her loyalty for granted. Her tweets read:

Lesson: don’t cheat on a loyal woman. God will punish u. When he does, tell people the truth. The truth may set u free. Love. Always.

Don’t make me do this.

I’m happy today not b/c of Meek. But b/c I know I’m a good person. Don’t hate u. Will always love u. I forgive u. It’s time to move on.

Enough with the pity party. Just live your life.

Took a person with me to fame & fortune. These dudes leave their girl in the hood. Tell people the truth or u will be doomed.

She continues:

And just like that, the 28-day marriage between Brittney Griner and her wife Glory Johnson is over.

According to TMZ,  Griner has officially filed papers seeking to annul her marriage with fellow WNBA player Glory Johnson.

You may remember that just this week we reported that the couple announced that Johnson was carrying the couple’s child.

Griner and Johnson married on May 8 in Arizona just weeks after they were both arrested for a domestic violence incident at their home.

Griner was ordered to complete a 26-week domestic violence counseling program while Johnson’s case is still pending. Both women were also sentenced to a 7 game suspension by the WNBA.

There are no words for this.

So, just discuss amongst yourselves.

Pass Or Play? Mariah Carey Disses Nick Cannon In New Song “Infinity”

Mariah Carey

 

Up until now, Mariah Carey has been very quiet about her separation and pending divorce between she and her husband Nick Cannon. She’s dodged paparazzi questions, kept her comments out of the tabloids and didn’t have any visible tattoos removed.

Today, though, it looks like Mariah is ready to talk…or sing about the end of her union in a new song “Infinity.”

And while she’ll probably say publicly that it has nothing to do with the father of her children, anyone who knows better can see that this song is full of shade.

Check out some of the lyrics below.

Why You Mad?
Talkin’ bout you’re mad
Could It be that you just lost the best you’ve ever had?

Boy you actin’ so corny like fritos
Wouldn’t have none of that without me though

I was yours eternally
There’s an end to infinity

Why you trying to play like you’re so grown
Everything you own
Boy, you still owe

Listen to the full song, in this lyric video and let us know what you think about this song? Pass or play?

Lord knows we want Fantasia to win. So we were really saddened to see the latest string of posts she’s uploaded and captioned for Instagram. We can’t be exactly sure but the captions seem to suggest that Fantasia and her partner Kendall Taylor have parted ways. Fantasia recently took a picture of her wedding rings…on the bed, and wrote this caption.

“It is Done…The Kids and I Will Always Love You <3 I got to stay strong for Granny…He was the best man I knew Kendall you are loved.” 

Here is the the post she uploaded and then promptly deleted. B. Scott captured it before she was able to get rid of it.

 

Did Fantasia Announce The End Of Her Relationship

What makes this already sad story even more tragic is that she is also dealing with the very recent loss of her grandmother.

She seemed to offer a bit of an explanation in a later post.

Here, in the office we’re debating whether or not the “She put me out! He cheated! She lied!” is to be taken literally or if she’s monologuing a bit. Either way, this seems to be the closest thing she’s posted as far as explanations go.

But it didn’t stop there. Fantasia shared this picture during her grandmother’s service.

We’re not sure quite what to make of all of this. But either way, with the loss of a loved one to death and the loss of another through departure, whether temporary or permanent, it’s a lot to handle. We’re hoping and praying for the best for Fantasia and hope that her friends and family rally around her during this time.

Floyd Mayweather and Shantel Jackson

Floyd “Money” Mayweather is undefeated in the boxing ring, but he has been very unlucky in love. The boxing champ was with Shantel Jackson for seven years and the two were even engaged before calling it quits early last year. Following their split, they both took public shots at each other: Mayweather posted a sonogram on Instagram and claimed he broke up with Jackson because she aborted their twins; Jackson took a jab of her own and held a press conference to announce her lawsuit against him, claiming Mayweather physically assaulted her on several occasions and threatened to shoot her in the foot.

Petty Patrick: Dwight Howard Garnishes Royce’s Bank Account For Violating Gag Order

It’s basically common knowledge that Dwight Howard had a gag order on Royce Reed. She was not to speak about their relationship on the reality show on which she starred “Basketball Wives.”

Well, somewhere along the way, Royce violated that order and Dwight has been trying to make her pay for that slip of the tongue ever since.

According to TheJasmineBrand.com, years ago a judge decided that Royce owed Howard $535,000. And while he’s been trying to collect the funds, Howard finally had Royce’s bank account garnished.

It all started back in 2010, when a judge ruled that Royce had violated a confidentiality agreement.

In 2012, Howard filed documents that would turn over all the money Reed had in her bank account to him, to start paying back that $535,000 debt.

Earlier this year, on January 27, documents showed that $2,432.64 was garnished from Reed’s account and given to Dwight.

It’s not exactly $535,000 but it’s at least a dent.

Now listen, I don’t have to tell you how wrong and backwards all of this is.

Here is Dwight Howard making millions in the NBA and he’s going to go after the mother of his child, attempting to take alll of the money out of her account…when she’s been working for it.

Foul.

I’m not exactly sure what went down with these two but whatever it is they need to put it behind them; because in the midst of all these petty and mean spirited jabs, the two have a son to raise.

What do you think about Dwight’s decision to garnish Royce’s bank account?
