It appears that Lil’ Mo and her husband, Phillip Bryant, are headed for divorce—if they haven’t divorced already. It’s unclear what contributed to their rumored split, but word is already circulating that there’s a new man in her life, boxer Karl Dargan. Earlier today the “R&B Divas: L.A.” star shared a photo of Karl for social media’s Man Crush Monday and judging by the message that went along with the photograph, the two certainly appear to be more than just platonic friends.
“When a hood n*gga LOVE you and allllll the sh** you come with and don’t JUDGE you,” Mo writes. “And don’t ASK nor try to EASE his way on YOUR SHOW and loves his MOMMY and his MOMMY loves YOU and his whole family LOVES you for YOU, not the artist, you damn right I’ll give all this up for the LOVE.”
“But he said DON’T give UP, just give US a try,” she continued. “Mannnnn listen. I’ll kill for this ONE here!!”
Naturally, folks began to inquire about her husband, Phillip Bryant. But Mo insists that folks will know everything they need to know about the situation after watching the new season of “R&B Divas: LA.”
“I can finally say that my children and I are VERY happy,” she later told The Jasmine Brand in response to divorce rumors. “And the tea will be spilled on season 2 of ‘R&B Divas LA.’”
Something tells me there is plenty of messiness in store for season two of “R&B Divas: LA.”
Will you be watching?
In this day and age where celebs and everyday folks take to their social media pages to share every little detail of their lives, there are still some stars who like to keep their private lives very private.
Cassie and Diddy
Rumor had it Diddy and Cassie were dating well before they were ever photographed together. Caught up in a love triangle with Cassie and his children’s mother Kim Porter, Diddy snuck around with the “Me & U” singer showing up at the same events but making sure to never arrive or leave together. Recently the two have been more open about their relationship in public and on social media. Diddy has posted photos professing his love for Cassie and last month sparked rumors when he put up a picture of an engagement ring with the caption, “Baby do you like it? I just want to get you wat you Like!” he added. “I just wanna Mk you smile #takeDat!”

Last month we told you that Hollywood “It” couple Robin Thicke and Paula Patton announced that they were separating after nine years of marriage. Since their initial announcement, Robin has made it clear that he refuses to let his marriage go without a fight and has been carrying on a rather public campaign to “win” his wife’s heart back. Just yesterday footage surfaced of Robin at yet another concert, sending what is being perceived as a subliminal message to his estranged wife about family and forgiveness.
“We gotta learn to forgive each other, learn to love each other,” he said to his audience. No matter who it is in your family or relationship … ’cause you’re always gonna need your friends and family.”
According to TMZ, Robin’s pleas haven’t fallen on deaf ears because multiple sources who are close to the situation now claim that Paula is open to giving the 37-year-old singer another chance. Interestingly, sources go on to say that it’s not Robin’s public declarations of love that have Paula reconsidering the split, but more so what he’s been doing behind closed doors that has really captured her attention. For one, insiders say that the “Lost Without You” singer has been spending a lot more time with the estranged couple’s 3-year-old son, Julian. It has also helped that he’s been keeping in touch more while he’s out on the road. As a result, their conversations have shifted from divorce talk to what changes Robin needs to make to improve their marriage. Sources add that their phone conversations are now productive, ”smooth and cordial” and that Paula has no plans of hiring a divorce attorney.
While we’d love to see Paula and Robin back together, we won’t get our hopes up until they confirm their reconciliation.
Would you like to see these two get back together?
‘I Go And Meditate With Them Every Morning:’ Russell Simmons Discusses Co-Parenting With His ‘Best Friend’ Kimora
Divorces can be pretty messy, especially when there are children involved. But Russell Simmons and his ex-wife, Kimora Lee Simmons, seem to have post-divorce co-parenting down to a science—something that Russell says is mostly due to the fact that he and Kimora are great friends.
“She’s my best friend. We’ve always been [good friends],” Russell said during an appearance on “Bethenny.” ” I mean even when we were divorcing it was like ‘You want this? I don’t know.’ We were good friends always.”
The hip hop mogul went on to commend Kimora for her amazing mothering skills.
“She is a good mother too, it can’t get better. My kids go to a school for gifted kids and they are well-behaved. They are awake and conscious and she’s the reason. She’s an amazing mother.”
“I go and meditate with them every morning and take them to school, they’re just pretty and they’re an inspiration for my life obviously and she’s made them for me.”
Though things didn’t work out with Kimora, Russell says he’s open to marrying again.
“I’m going to get married again. Yeah, I’m stupid I still think I’m young,” he explained before adding that he’s open to having more children. “Depending on the woman I married, if that was something she really wanted to do, you know, I love children and I love my children and I would love more. You know, but it’s not something like ‘I got to get another kid’ but I would.”
It’s great that they’re able to remain so close even though their marriage didn’t work out.

Last December actor Brian White announced that he and his wife, Paula, are expecting their first child together. It turns out they’re having a girl and the love birds seem to be bursting with joy.
“I can’t even begin to describe how happy I am right now,” Paula told Rolling Out. “Brian is going to be a great father, and I couldn’t ask for a better partner.”
“I feel blessed beyond belief,” Brian chimed in.”To know that you have a child coming into the world, it only makes you want to work even harder, and do all of the things that I know are important to be both a good husband, and a good father. I’ve been reflecting a lot — particularly when it comes to my parents — and just thinking about the things that I admired in them, and the things that I want for myself and for Paula.”
Their daughter is due on April 14th and Brian adds that they’re well prepared for their little bundle to make her big debut.
“When we made the decision that it was time to start a family, we were very smart in our decisions,” Brian added. “We didn’t take extra vacations, or spend money in the club buying bottles. … No, we were investing in our property, and making sure that we thought ahead to make sure that our kids’ lives will be taken care of.”
Luckily for the “Hostages” actor, he found a partner who shares similar beliefs.
“To have someone in my life who thinks about those things in the same way that I do, has made all of the difference in the world.”
They seem so happy!
Since last month, rumors about Brandy parting ways with her manager and fiancé have been circulating. It all began when the “Put It Down” singer began showing up at multiple events—including her 35th surprise birthday party—without her engagement ring. To add fuel to fire, a source claiming to be an “insider” said that after moving in together, Brandy and Ryan decided that marriage may not be the most ideal move for them right now and broke off their engagement.
Now, while all signs seem to point to a breakup, this is mostly circumstantial evidence and does not confirm that an actual breakup occurred. HipHollywood recently caught up with “The Game” actress to find out the scoop on her current relationship status, but Brandy isn’t really interested in discussing that with anyone.
“I’m not talking about my relationship,” she said while strolling the red carpet at the Essence’s Black Women In Hollywood Awards luncheon.”I’m here to celebrate powerful women today,” she continued.
We definitely can’t blame her for wanting to keep folks out of her business while she and Ryan sort things out; however, judging by her answer, we think it’s safe to assume that there is some sort of trouble in paradise. Whatever the case, we’re hoping they can work things out.
Over the weekend we told you that a bank finally foreclosed on rapper Earl “DMX” Simmons’ New York mansion, which he reportedly hasn’t made a payment on since 2008.
In case you were curious about hearing X’s explanation for why owes over $250,000 in mortgage payments, prepare to be amazed. According to X, his estranged wife, Tashera, is actually the reason why his finances are in shambles. He recently shared with TMZ that he stopped living in the mansion back in 2005 and Tashera agreed to take financial responsibility of the home and continue paying off the mortgage, which she reportedly failed to do.
On top of all of that, the troubled rapper accused Tashera of making an unauthorized withdrawal of $100,000 from his bank account while he was in prison. He adds that he’s clueless about what she actually did with the money because she certainly didn’t use it on the mortgage. X insists that he constantly reminds Tashera that she’s living above her financial means and that she needs to downsize significantly, but she isn’t trying to hear it.
“I told her she is living above her means, that you can’t still live on the same block as Martha Stewart and Chevy Chase, you gotta downgrade,” he explained. “But she refuses to do so because the house is in my name. She doesn’t give a f*** about my credit.”
Tashera has yet to comment on her estranged husband’s allegations.
‘I Thought My Life Was Over:’ Evelyn Lozada Addresses Life After Ochocinco And How Fiancé, Carl Crawford, Makes Her Better
Evelyn Lozada is extremely happy these days. And to be honest, we can totally see why. She’s engaged to be married to a wealthy Major League Baseball star whom she seems totally in love with, she’s pregnant with the second child she’s always wanted and she’s surrounded by people who love and care for her. Overall, the former “Basketball Wives” star seems to be in a great place—a place that is an extreme contrast from where she was just two short years ago. 41 days after marrying former NFLer Chad Ochocinco in a fairytale wedding, the couple divorced following a highly publicized domestic violence incident.
“I had the worst 2012,” she confessed during a recent interview with Life & Style. “I thought my life was over.”
While going through such a traumatic incident is probably never easy, she added that doing so as the world watches made it that much more difficult.
“It happened so publicly, and then the passing of my brother-in-law.”
Though she was clearly broken by the way her marriage ended, Ev expressed that she believes that something positive was birthed in the midst of all of that negativity.
“That entire incident [with Chad] led me to where I’m at now,” she said. “I would say my broken bridge led me to happiness. If I had to do it again, I would because I truly feel complete right now in my life and I wouldn’t change it for anything.”
When asked if she feels her fiancé, Carl Crawford, saved her, she expressed that he appeared in her life at the “perfect time.”
“He came into my life at a perfect time. Everything that happened makes me appreciate him 1,000 times more and he also makes me a better person. I appreciate everything and I thank God every day for my life…I’m really lucky and really, really blessed.”
As for the baby boy that she’s scheduled to give birth to in two months, Ev says she’s very much looking forward to the joys and challenges that raising a son will bring.
“He’s going to give me a run for my money! I’m like, ‘Oh my God, he’s going to want to play and get dirty. “I’m just looking forward to all these amazing things that come with having a boy and a baby.”
And most of all, she says she looks forward to teaching him the importance of respecting women.
“I just want him to love and respect all women.”
It’s tough not to be happy for someone who is so blatantly, well, happy!
Last fall we told you that after 11 years of marriage, the wife of Outkast rapper Antwan “Big Boi” Patton, Sherlita Patton, filed for divorce. Her reason for wanting out of the marriage has not been made public as of yet, but whatever the reason, it doesn’t appear that the split is going to be an easy task.
As previously reported, Sherlita has filed for sole custody of their youngest child (they have another who is 18 years old). But TMZ is reporting that he’s fighting Sherlita on her request for full custody, insisting that the child would best benefit from joint physical and legal custody.
Child support doesn’t seem like it will present a problem, as the 39-year-old says that he’s willing to shell out whatever the State of Georgia requires him to pay in child support. Alimony, however, appears to be a rather different story. In recently filed court documents, Big’s legal team points out that Sherlita is fairly young, in good health and well-educated. In other words, she’s perfectly capable of holding down a job like the rest of us and because of that, he’s not trying to cut those alimony checks.
We’re not sure what to say about their feud over alimony, but we do hope that they can come to some sort of agreement regarding the custody of their child.
Karrueche Tran has made it clear in the past that her love for Chris Brown has very few limits. With Valentine’s Day just one day away and Chris still completing his rehab stint, sources say that the fashion designer will be celebrating the holiday with her boo in rehab.
“Karrueche’s definitely going to see him and spend the day with him at rehab,” an insider told Hollywood Life. “She wouldn’t miss it for the world. They both want to be with each other and they will, they just want it to be under different circumstances, that’s all.”
The sources goes on to say that she won’t be showing up empty handed, apparently she’ll be showing off her culinary skills for her boo.
“Food. She wants her babe to eat. He’s not much of an eater, he never really has been. But she’s going to make him some homemade cabbage and shrimp biscuits. Kae can get down in the kitchen and she’s going to whip him up something and take it to him.”
If you haven’t already given her the girlfriend of the year award, we hear she’s also planning a little welcome home shindig with his mom once his 90-day rehab stint concludes on Feb. 20.
“Nothing too outrageous,” the source dished. “We just want to welcome him back. We’ll order some food, break out the XBox 360, play some music and just all be together.”
This would not be the first holiday that Karrueche has spent in the rehab facility with Chris. She also spent this past Thanksgiving with the “Love More” singer.
