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.
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.
It doesnt matter what road you take, hill you climb, or path you're on, you will always end up in the same place, LEARNING… There is nothing more devastating to the human psyche that what we call a broken heart. He done me wrong! She put me out! He cheated! She lied! I cant eat! I cant sleep! I see her face! I hear his voice! Ive got to see her ! Wait! Hold it! Hearts don't break! We love with our heads, not with out heart. We develop an idea of what a relationship should be. If things do not go the way we planned, our hearts are broken. .. Grandama im Broken no sleep yet
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.
In the real world when engagements don’t end in a marriage, it’s something like a scandal. A big one. Speeches have to be made, explanations have to be given and everything else. But in the world of celebrity, particularly reality stars, engagements rarely end in marriages. Did you notice? Check out the couples who just couldn’t seem to make it down the aisle.
Love can be a beautiful thing, but when relationships end, sometimes bitterness trumps all the other feelings. These celebrity couples went from being in love to duking it out in public.
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.
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.
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?
Breakups are never easy. Love will make you do some crazy things when you’re all bae’d up, but it’ll also make you think crazy thoughts once you’re bae-less. With Twitter, Instagram and Facebook ruling our lives and relationship statuses, social media has become the go-to place to share such thoughts–even for the stars.
With subliminal shots and salty comments flying every other day, here are 10 things celebrities are guilty of doing online that you should avoid after calling it quits with your own ex.
When we’re in love, our noses are often blasted wide open and we can’t see our lives without the new person who has stolen our heart. And sometimes, when we’re feeling that person a little too much too fast, we start talking about them like they’re the best thing since sliced bread–and throw shade at our exes in the process. These stars found love again and instead of just being happy about that, they decided to crap all over the people they were once in love with. Not cool…
I can partly understand why Kanye West dissed Amber Rose. I mean, she did call his wife a whore on Twitter while beefing with Khloe Kardashian. But West went a bit too far with his jabs on The Breakfast Club:
“It’s very hard for a woman to want to be with someone that’s with Amber Rose…I had to take 30 showers before I got with Kim.”
And that wasn’t all he had to say.
“She’s just soakin’ in the moment. If Kim had dated me when I first wanted to be with her, there wouldn’t be an Amber Rose.”
Ouch. Rose would respond, reminding him that since they were in love once, she wouldn’t pull all of his skeletons out of the closet–she’ll just let the Kardashians do it when they’re done with him.
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.
