Not that any of us were sitting around, holding our breath and waiting for these two to actually make it down the isle or anything, but Brandon Jennings recently confirmed that he and Tae Heckard called off their engagement. It’s unclear why the two decided to part ways, but Brandon recently tweeted a special thank you to MTO after they reported that Tae may have cheated on him with her ex-boyfriend, Nelly. According to reports, Tae was sneaking around to see him behind Brandon’s back.
Mediatakeout good looking. I ain’t even know that. — BRANDON JENNINGS (@BrandonJennings) August 29, 2014
But that’s not why the engagement is off. I been dead that — BRANDON JENNINGS (@BrandonJennings) August 29, 2014

Brandon and Tae’s short-lived relationship was a popular one among gossip outlets considering the messy nature of it all. As you may recall, Brandon dated and was purportedly engaged to Tae’s former friend, Teyana Taylor. We imagine Teyana is probably somewhere laughing hysterically at the irony of all of this, considering that a lack of loyalty is what brought Tae and Brandon together and apparently is what caused their relationship to fall apart as well.
Gossip tabloids have been especially focused on divorce rumors lately. Although the Jay Z and Beyoncé breakup rumors don’t appear to be true, sadly, the Nick and Mariah ones were. Now, there’s a new rumor: Kim and Kanye are already headed for splitsville. While the two have not even been married for a full year yet, Life & Style is reporting that the Hollywood couple’s marriage is already deteriorating.
In their September 8 issue, which has a headline that reads, “Pregnant & Dumped,” the magazine claims that Kim and Kanye have been doing a lot of arguing about their future. Sources allege that things have gotten so bad between the two that it’s only a matter of time before one of them files for divorce. However, it won’t be as easy for Kim to walk away from this marriage like she did with her last one because she’s supposedly pregnant again.
A rep for Kim recently spoke to RumorFix and explained that while Kim does want a second child, she is not currently pregnant. As for the breakup rumors, the rep says that those are false as well. Kim also took to Instagram to shut down the rumors in a subtle way.
“On my way bae,” she captioned a photo of herself using her cell phone.
Maintaining a healthy relationship takes work, but being in a high-profile relationship has to make things even more difficult.
For several months, it has been speculated that “Orange Is The New Black” star Samira Wiley has been dating writer for the show, Lauren Morelli. From the looks of it, the couple decided to go public with their relationship the night of the Emmys. The pair were photographed holding hands as they made their way out of Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles.
Fans first began questioning the nature of the relationship between the two after they kept popping up in photos on one another’s Instagram pages.
“Weekend #turnup w/ @lomorelli!! #success #iloveyougirl,” Samira captioned a photo of Lauren back in April
Interestingly, Lauren was previously married to a man, but revealed in an open letter published to Mic.com that after writing for the show, she realized that she’s gay.
“Five months after my wedding, I flew to New York to start production on my first episode of Orange, and from that moment on my life fell into a parallel rhythm with Piper’s story in a way that went from interesting to terrifying in a matter of months,” she wrote.
“Despite being 31 years old,” she continued “Having lived in extremely liberal cities for 13 years of my life and considering myself an educated individual, over the last year I:
1. Googled “How do you know if you’re a lesbian?” There had to be, like, a quiz or something, right?
2. Wondered if it was my birth control. I’d just switched to an IUD, could it be affecting whom I was attracted to? Really. That was a thing I thought and even went as far as mentioning it to my therapist, who has a doctorate in sexual identity and did a very good job patiently explaining that, no, birth control couldn’t change essential sexual preference.
3. Wanted to die. If being gay meant losing the person I loved most in the world, if it meant coming out to my parents and tearing open the most vulnerable, soft parts of myself and showing them to everyone I knew, I would rather be dead. I was suicidal in a way that I hadn’t been since eighth grade, when I took a bunch of Tylenol and went to sleep. The next morning I woke up feeling refreshed from the great sleep and excited that I could tell my friends about how depressed I was.”
“I went through it all on set: I fell in love with a woman, and I watched my life play out on screen. And now, as we are gearing up for the release of season 2, it feels liberating and appropriate to live my life in front of you.”

It used to be that you were warned about the dangers of meeting strangers online but nowadays it’s not just regular folk that are using social media to find a mate. These stars found love or lust on Twitter and Facebook.
Big Sean and Naya Rivera
Big Sean was with his high school sweetheart since he was 16 years old but after finding fortune and fame, their love deteriorated. Early last year, the Detroit rapper used twitter to meet his next paramour. The “Marvin Gaye & Chardonnay” rapper first hollered at Naya Rivera on twitter. The two quickly moved their relationship offline and into the real world. After dating for more than six months, Big Sean popped the question and the happy couple became engaged. But earlier this year, the wedding was called off. Several months later the “Glee” star married an old friend.
Over the weekend, we told you that Nick Cannon’s father, James Cannon, shared a questionable and seemingly messy Facebook status that many assumed was about his son and daughter-in-law’s relationship woes.
“Here a thing to talk about if the wife love sex and the man can’t stand making love to her. What should that women do?” he questioned in a post that he later claimed was pulled from his 2011 book, The Calling.
Heres a thing, if the husband say no lies, and the wife lies all the time, what should that man do?
Here a thing, if the wife put on 200 pounds and the husband like a nice slim wife what should that man do?
If a husband tells his wife not to have an abortion, and she it anyways, what should that man do?
Here a thing, if a husband wants to have ten children and his wife only wants two children then what should that man do?”
James reportedly spoke to a Page Six source since making the post and he seems to be rooting for Nick and Mariah to work through their issues.
“They need to stick this out,” he reportedly said before adding that they have already spent too much time apart.”Teams of people pulling them separate ways.”
“The love is always going to be there,” he continued. “But they just don’t have that quality of time,” he said. “The last thing Nick will want to do is look back and think the marriage blew up in his face.”
As for rumors that the marriage fell apart because Mariah couldn’t deal with Nick constantly being surrounded by women, James reportedly had this to say:
“Were temptations ever there with other women? Not for Nick, he genuinely loved the married life . . . But did that stop other women coming to him? Probably not.”
“I know Nick tries really hard to stay focused and would say: ‘I’m with the most outstanding, gorgeous woman. I’ve hit the jackpot so why would I be with someone else?’”
He also supposedly claimed that news of the split came as a bit of a surprise to him.
“Everything was beautiful as far as I knew,” James said. “The separation has really caught us off guard.”
He went on:
[Mariah was] “at our home two weeks ago, talking and laughing . . . I’ve never seen them argue.”
“I see Mariah as an angel to our family . . . I never saw [her] as a diva.”
Strangely, he also reportedly told the gossip column that he thinks the marriage would’ve lasted if Nick was more hands on in regard to Mariah’s career.
“If Nick could have somehow ran her business, or worked in conjunction with her, they would have been such a power couple in Hollywood,” he said. “It’s difficult, but look at Beyoncé and Jay Z.”
In other Nick and Mariah news, according to TMZ, the estranged couple reportedly met for dinner last Friday in Tribeca. Sources are claiming that they’re also getting along a lot better since separating. However, insiders add that it’s all for the sake of the children and that there’s no chance for romantic reconciliation.
When Nelly and Shantel Jackson first went public with their romance, most (including myself) assumed that they were in an actual relationship. But as it turns out, the two appear to have more of a situationship. The former fiancée to troubled boxer Floyd Mayweather recently told Hip Hollywood that what she has with Nelly isn’t actually a “full blown” relationship.
“I wouldn’t right now say that it is a full blown relationship. We are getting to know each other, we are building a friendship. So as of right now, everything is like in the beginning stages.”
She also discussed Nelly’s, new reality show, which she will also be appearing on, and dispelled rumors that were floating around about the new project.
“He has this amazing show coming up on BET as of right now. There were rumors that we were already filming or people thought they knew what we were doing, but that was untrue. We haven’t filmed anything as of yet. Everything just came about.” Jackson goes on to tell us that she will definitely be working with the program.”
Maybe the show will provide viewers with a better understanding regarding whatever it is that Nelly and Shantel have going on.
As previously reported, the series will highlight the St. Louis rapper’s business ventures, his children and his “relationship” with Shantel.
When it’s true love, you know it – and when it’s not, you know it too. When it comes to these celebrity couple splits, we all knew it was a matter of time before ish hit the fan.
Tyga and Blac Chyna
Despite the perception, it’s hard to find true love at the strip club. Rapper Tyga met his future baby mama during a trip to the infamous King of Diamonds in Miami. He recruited Blac Chyna’s services to be his leading lady for his “Rack City” video and soon she was the leading lady in his life. The couple welcomed their son in 2012 and the Cali rapper bought a mansion for his new family. But before their son King Cairo was out of the terrible twos, the couple called it quits.
After weeks of completely ignoring reports that his fiancée, Ciara, called off their engagement because he cheated on her with his stylist, Future decided to address the rumors via Instagram in a bit of a roundabout way.
“I Dnt respond to rumors I respond to money #MONSTER,” he captioned a photo of himself sitting in what appears to be a recording studio.
His post appears to be more symbolic than anything, as it has been reported that he’s set to address his split from the “I’m Out” singer on his new mixtape, “Evol,” which is love spelled backwards and pronounced “evil.” Friends of the 30-year-old rapper have already spoken out about the project.
“That love thing kinda hindered him I think, it slowed him down mentally,” one friend told BuzzFeed. “Future’s one of those dudes you don’t really interview,” he said. “To know what’s going on in his life that day, you gotta go to the studio that day. He just takes longer to put his words together and his thoughts.”
The friend went on to say that the project isn’t actually about falling out of love, but rather the various and unexpected forms that love can take.
“Future has a weird way to love. You might see it’s not all the way right, but it’s still love. It’s not traditional love,” the friend went on. “Future loves all his kids and babies’ mothers. I think he’s loved all of them equally.
In other Future news, it also appears that mother of one of his other sons, Brittni Mealy, accompanied him during his recent trip to Europe. It’s unclear whether or not the two have reunited romantically, but at this rate, I wouldn’t be surprised.

Yesterday, we told you that Nick Cannon confirmed what we were all hoping was just a terrible rumor: he and Mariah Carey have separated.
“There is trouble in paradise. We have been living in separate houses for a few months,” he shared. “My main focus is my kids.”
It’s unclear whether or not this is just a trial separation or if the estranged couple has plans to formally end their marriage, but several sources are claiming that a divorce is definitely in the works. In fact, one insider is claiming that things are so real, Nick and Mariah have already worked out a confidentiality agreement. According to TMZ, the agreement is supposedly super one-sided and prohibits Nick from saying anything about the breakup. If he does not comply with the agreement, sources claim that he will face “severe financial penalties.”
The agreement also supposedly gives Mariah the right to announce the breakup on her terms. Nick was allowed to say that they are living apart, but ultimately, the formal breakup announcement will come from Mimi, the source claims. Out of everything that has been reported regarding Nick and Mariah’s split thus far, I find this to be the most believable. Mimi works overtime to keep her dirty laundry out of these streets and Nick clearly has issues when it comes to determining what is appropriate to share and what isn’t.

The old saying goes, “Why buy the milk when you could get it for free?” We’re guessing these women never heard of that phrase because they had no problem sticking around for 10-plus years with these men without even the promise of an engagement ring.
Mimi Faust and Stevie J.
We were all introduced to Stevie J. and Mimi Faust during the first season of “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” and immediately they grabbed our attention. Together with Mimi for more than a decade, the hit producer was carrying on another relationship with his artist Joseline Hernandez behind Mimi’s back. Forced to pick between the two women, Stevie J. eventually chose Joseline and ended his relationship to Mimi for good. The two have been trying to put their differences aside to co-parent their toddler daughter, but considering Stevie married Joseline in a matter of a year, that likely won’t happen anytime soon.
