Tiny and T.I.’s marital woes have taken center stage over the past few months, but it appears that the reality TV couple is committed to working through whatever problems they may be facing in their relationship. It just so happens that today the reality stars are celebrating their fourth wedding anniversary. In honor of the special day, Tiny took to Instagram with an affectionate message for her rapper hubby.

“4 yrs ago @troubleman31 made me The Mrs. Harris, this was the best day ever!! My own Fairy Tale Wedding….El Debarge singing “All this Love” for our first dance and @iamjamiefoxx sung me dwn the aisle. It doesn’t get much better than that!! Happy Anniversary to the man I LOVE, my husband!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️”

Her message was also accompanied by photos from their ceremony.

Tiny recently spoke about the issues that she and her husband are experiencing and the two songs that they recently released about one another.

“I’ve had people say, why not just talk to your husband about all this instead of talking to him through a song,” the singer-turned-reality-star told Vibe’s Aliya S. King. “Please believe, I’m doing that too! You’re not in our house. You’re not in our conversations. You’re not in our bed at night. This song is not all there is to this relationship.”

“Will our music affect our real-life relationship? I really don’t know,” she continued. “I mean if it does, I hope it’s in a good way. Hopefully, it works out in our favor in the end. All I know is that I’m working on it. We’re working on it.”

Happy Anniversary!

Keyshia Cole Reacts To Boobie’s Claims That He Doesn’t Believe In Divorce Because He’s A Christian…

Folks love getting all spiritual after they have screwed up royally. Last week, we told you that Daniel “Boobie” Gibson claimed that he wouldn’t be filing for divorce from his estranged wife, Keyshia Cole, because he’s a Christian and doesn’t believe in it.

“She would have to do it,” he expressed. “I am a Christian. I believe in ’til death do us part.’”

Of course, it’s no secret that Daniel is a believer, but considering that he practically confessed to stepping out on his wife, the idea of him suddenly wanting to rest on biblical principles regarding marriage was slightly comical. This morning, during an interview with The Breakfast Club, Charlamagne informed Keyshia of Daniel’s comments and her reaction tickled me quite a bit.

“He did not say that,” Keyshia responded before laughing. “He did not say that!”

After getting her giggles out, Keyshia seriously responded to his comment.

“It’s a lot of things you should think about before—if you really feel like that in your heart and your soul as a person, as a man, as a father. I know people make mistakes, but you know, you gotta think about those kind of things because ultimately, it’s not worth it. [You gotta learn from your mistakes] at least. How about we do that? Let’s start there. Just let it go and know what you have and let’s keep it moving.”

Keyshia also responded to Boobie publicly confessing that he “failed” her as a husband. Clearly, she ‘s had enough.

“It’s a lot of admitting and a lot of doing wrong. It just gets tired. [And he continues to do it].”

Things are so over between them that Keyshia said that while she hopes he has learned his lesson, she won’t be the one sticking around to find out.

“Recently I told him, ‘I hope you really find that woman and you be good to her.’”

She seems to be handling the split a lot better, which is great.

‘I’d Marry Him Like Right Now:’ Adrienne Bailon Opens Up To Latina About Her Longtime Boyfriend

Breaking up is rarely easy, but having to do it while in the public eye can make things even more complicated. Unfortunately, “The Real” host Adrienne Bailon was faced with this obstacle when her relationship with Rob Kardashian fell apart.

“It’s common knowledge that he cheated on me,” Adrienne tells Latina in their September issue, which she appears on the cover of. “And it always bothered me that people were like, ‘Pero, why couldn’t you forgive him?’ Why are women always the ones who have to forgive? If you cheated on a man, he would be like, ‘You’re disgusting, and I want nothing to do with you.’But women, we’re supposed to be like, ‘He messed up. He made a mistake.’”

Even if she were to consider infidelity a mistake, Adrienne says that she couldn’t simply forgive Rob because his betrayal was premeditated.

“In my situation, it wasn’t like, ‘Oh my God! I made a mistake!’ He strategically planned things out so that he could cheat on me, and that to me was so disloyal.”

Thankfully, Adrienne has not allowed the betrayal to taint her outlook on love. Since the Rob split, the former “Cheetah Girl” has been in a loving relationship with a photographer named Lenny Santiago for five years. However, the Rob situation left her reluctant about going public with their relationship.

“When I was doing the reality show [Empire Girls] with Julissa [Bermudez], the producers wanted me to show my relationship with Lenny, but I didn’t want to do that; I didn’t want a repeat of what happened with Rob.”

However, now that they have five solid years under their belts as a couple, Adrienne says she felt more comfortable opening up about their love.

“I wanted to let people know that we’re not a secret—we’re just private. Secret relationships are shady, and it’s never been that. Five years into our relationship, we’re no longer at the beginning—we’re established now. We’re in a great, strong place where any negativity cast our way won’t affect us. It was a big birthday for him—he turned 40—and I felt like, ‘I want people to know that I love you, and I think you’re freakin’ amazing.’”

Of course, five years is a pretty long time, so naturally, folks are wondering why Adrienne and Lenny haven’t tied the knot yet. But it seems that the actress’ career may be what has their marital plans on pause at the moment.

“If by some miracle we started taping The Real in New York tomorrow, I’d marry him, like, right now. I want a family. I see my sister and she’s on her second baby, and I’m like, That’s success. Having a family—I can’t wait for that.”

She seems to be in a really great place. We’re happy for her. You can check out her full interview in the Sept. issue of Latina magazine.

Keyshia Cole Breaks Silence On Lesbian Rumors & How Her Failed Marriage Changed Her Perspective On Love

Around the time that the public learned that things were officially over between Keyshia Cole and Daniel “Boobie” Gibson, the Oakland singer released a telling track titled “She,” which seemed to paint the portrait of a lesbian love affair. Naturally, fans began to wonder whether or not the track was a hint that Keyshia has been dealing with women since her split from Boobie; however, the reality star says that this is not the case. Instead, she says that for her, “She” is actually about her personal journey to becoming familiar with her own body following her separation from Daniel.

“I had to get familiar with myself so I think that song is really, in essence of what that song ‘She’ is about,” Keyshia told WGCI radio during a recent interview. “It’s getting to know yourself. I know people think it’s about girl-on-girl action, which it was at first, and then I kinda switched the lyrics around a little bit.”

Speaking of her separation, Keyshia also addressed how preparing to go through a divorce has altered her perspective on love and relationships. The next time around, Keyshia says she will place a higher value on being a man’s friend first.

“It’s no way of getting around not knowing if somebody is ready or not,” she explained. “That’s the whole thing about friendship. Whoever I end up with, I’ve been praying that he’s my friend first. If you think about being friends, you’re not going to go and get them hit up. You not gone put them in a situation where you gone get them shot. You ain’t gone put me in a situation where you make another woman think she got something over me. If we friends and you really love me like you say you do, it’s certain things you’re not going to do out of respect.”

As for what she has been doing to get through the difficult split, Keyshia says she has been directing her energies towards becoming more physically fit.

“Gym, yeah. Just trying to eat better. I did a fast for about 4-5 days…just juicing. I actually loved it. I go in the steam room before I work out for about 10-15 minutes then go work out for about 2 -3 hours then go pick up my son from school and get back to my motherly duties. Right now, working. Trying to stay focused.”

It’s unfortunate that  Keyshia and Daniel were unable to work things out, but we’re wishing them both the best.

Daniel Gibson Refuses To Divorce Keyshia Cole: ‘I Am A Christian’

It appears that a divorce between Keyshia Cole and Daniel Gibson is inevitable, but Daniel says that he has not officially filed yet. Interestingly, someone took it upon themselves to file for him, according to TMZ.

The unnamed person went down to the Los Angeles County Superior Court last week . In the documents, the person cited irreconcilable differences as a cause for the split; however a red flag went up when the person listed Gibson as his own attorney.

What’s even more bizarre is that the address provided in the filing is actually the address of an El Pollo Loco restaurant. TMZ reached out to Daniel about the bogus filing and he revealed that he hasn’t even considered filing for divorce from Keyshia.

“She would have to do it,” he expressed. “I am a Christian. I believe in ’til death do us part.’”

As for the creepy impostor, the ex-NBA star says he intends to press charges. Keyshia, on the other hand, says she’s still planning on going through with the divorce. We can’t figure out why someone would go to the lengths of filing for divorce on Daniel’s behalf just for the hell of it. People are always doing the absolute most.

Why Tiny And T.I. Address Relationship Issues In Their Music

Earlier this week, both T.I. and Tiny dropped some pretty emotional songs that seemed to speak to the issues that they’re experiencing in their relationship. In Tiny’s “#WTFYGD,” she challenges her man to think about what he would do without her in his life. On the other hand, in T.I.’s “Stay,” he expresses his love for his wife and his desire to work things out. Of course, folks are wondering why the couple won’t take their efforts to save their relationship to a marriage counselor’s couch instead making things so public, but Tiny says the public has no idea what they’re doing behind closed doors to make their marriage work.

“I’ve had people say, why not just talk to your husband about all this instead of talking to him through a song,” the singer-turned-reality-star told Vibe’s Aliya S. King. “Please believe, I’m doing that too! You’re not in our house. You’re not in our conversations. You’re not in our bed at night. This song is not all there is to this relationship.”

Although she said her song was written years ago, Tiny adds that their songs being released around the same time was completely coincidental.

“I know it’s hard to believe, but we did not plan for these songs to come out at the same time,” she explained. “T.I. did not hear my song until the whole world did. He knew nothing about it. I had heard his song and I loved it. But I did not know he was going to release it. So the day I dropped my song, I’m asking to see how it’s doing on iTunes and someone said, it’s doing great—but did you hear T.I.’s new song? And I’m like, what new song?! And it turns out to be ‘Stay.’”

At first I was disappointed. I didn’t want my song to be overshadowed by his. But then I realized, this is the way it was supposed to happen. This is God saying our songs should be released at the same time. It was meant to be.

T.I.’s song—yeah. I love it. I can’t deny it. I listen to it on repeat. I love that he expressed himself that well. I’ve watched him in the studio and his work ethic is effortless. So to hear him put that energy into something like this… it made me happy. And since we’ve been going through…whatever…to hear that meant a lot to me.”

As for whether or not their music will have an impact on their relationship, the former Xscape singer had this to say:

“Will our music affect our real-life relationship? I really don’t know. I mean if it does, I hope it’s in a good way. Hopefully, it works out in our favor in the end. All I know is that I’m working on it. We’re working on it.”

Deep down inside, I’m sort of hoping that these two can find the strength to hang in there and work through their issues.

Ne-Yo Opens Up About New Boo: ‘She Has Much Promise’

July 23rd, 2014 - By Jazmine Denise Rogers

Well, there’s definitely a new lady in Ne-Yo’s life. For quite some time now, Instagram photos have made it apparent that the R&B singer has been spending some quality time with model Crystal Renay. He recently confirmed during an interview with Hot 97 that their relationship is definitely romantic.

Though he wouldn’t actually call Crystal his girlfriend, he did have great things to say about where he and his “something like” a girlfriend are headed.

“We are in a good place. Her name is Crystal Renay.”

While many were under the impression that she was one of his recording artists, Ne-Yo seemed to imply that this relationship is all pleasure.

“No, she’s not my artist.”

He was very careful not to place a title on what they have, but expressed that she has “much promise;” whatever that means.

“We’re in a good place. She has much promise. Yes, much promise. Quality.”

When complimented on the fact that he’s not trying to hide their situationship as he has done in the past, Ne-Yo had this to say:

“You know what, at this point in my career, at this point in my life… I’m 34 years old bro, I don’t have time to be hiding. Of course, there are some things you keep personal and private because you’re a human being. But on the other side of it, I ain’t got time to be hiding nothing and all that. It is what it is.”

As for his relationship with ex-fiancée and mother of his two children, Monyetta Shaw, Ne-Yo said:

“Me and the mother of my children, we’re still close, we’re still cool.”

Interestingly, back in May Ne-Yo opened up to Power 105.1 about struggling with being faithful in the past.

“I didn’t get caught [cheating],” he explained. “I realized I had a problem and I have too much respect for the person I was with to continue lying to her face.”

Though it seemed like he was referring to his sudden split from Monyetta, he never actually mentioned her specifically.

Perhaps It’s Really Over: Robin Thicke And Paula Patton Put Marital Home Up For Sale

Initially, there was a lot of speculation regarding how permanent the Robin Thicke-Paula Patton split would be. Some even thought their public separation to be a publicity stunt that would give both of their careers a boost. But with album sales for Robin’s heart-wrenching “Paula” album in the toilet and Paula’s last major movie role being “Baggage Claim,” we have no choice but to assume that this probably isn’t the case.

Now, it appears that the couple is making steps towards closing the marital chapter of their lives. According to The Hollywood Reporter, after five months of separation, the estranged couple has put their Hollywood Hills mansion up for sale. The asking price for the three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom pad is $2.985 million. It originally belonged to Robin’s father, actor Alan Thicke, but was passed down to the R&B crooner in 2005.

As you’ve probably heard at this point, Paula announced her separation from Robin back in February.

“We will always love each other and be best friends, however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time,” she said in an official statement.

Sadly, the announcement came after nearly 10 years of marriage. Earlier this month, Robin spoke about the demise of their union with Hot 97 and he appeared to be assuming most of the blame.

“At this point in our relationship, the only reason we aren’t together are the choices I’ve made,” he confessed.

It looks like it’s really over. We’re wishing both Robin and Paula the best. Hopefully they can take the lessons learned from this experience and avoid making similar mistakes in the future.

What Common Had To Say About Getting Back Together With Serena Williams

Over the past few weeks, Common has spoken quite openly about his relationships with both Serena Williams and Erkyah Badu. During a recent chat with The Breakfast Club, he went on to further expound on his relationships with these celebrity women, as well as his past relationship with actress Taraji P. Henson.

While the actor and rapper says that he was definitely serious about both Erkyah and Serena, it doesn’t really seem that a reunion between either couple is likely.

“It’s like once I’ve experienced that person its like man, sometimes life goes on,” he explained. “I can’t say I never would go back but Serena and Erkyah was the most serious relationships that I had as an adult and after, it’s one of those things, it’s like, ‘I have to move forward.’ It was real love right there. Both of those women I could’ve married. I was like if I’m not supposed to be there, we’re just supposed to be friends.”

Speaking of marriage, Common doesn’t seem too sure that he’ll be making the big leap in the future—or ever.

“I don’t know. I was thinking about that last night while talking to one of my lady friends. I don’t know if I’m marriage material, maybe someday” he expressed.

“I be focused on my music and my work a lot. Sometimes that’s hard to balance with a relationship. I do like relationships, but a lot of times when I’m in relationships, I don’t make my best albums. Put it this way, I would have to find the right relationship. You know, a woman who understands the time that you gotta give. to your work. That’s really what it is.”

He also further explained his previous comment that Erkyah has that “good good.”

“The hood knows what it is. Erkyah got something with her, she got something special. Erykah a raw girl, she got a lot to her. She’s from the hood, point blank. She’s just one of those people from the hood that’s artsy, artistic, spiritual, she’s got a lot to her.”

As for the public believing that Serena broke his heart, Common had this to say:

“Me and Serena was together. We broke up. I don’t know specifically her and Drake, it felt like obviously something was going on [after we broke up], I ain’t dwell on it too much. I ain’t have no problem with that, you do what you do. After a while I felt like in some of Drake’s songs he was saying stuff that was subliminal to me. And I was like, you just don’t know nowadays cats be doing them sneak disses and after a while it was like I’m just going to come out and say what I need to say. It was a show I was at and I left and Drake said something out to the crowd, some tough stuff. So then I was like, ‘aight, it was that time’ because I knew he was directing it to me. We kept it on record and after that it was squashed.”

The Chicago rapper-turned-actor also confessed to confronting Serena about her relationship with Drake.

“I definitely talked to her about it. At the end of the day, once she aint ya lady, what can I say? It don’t have nothing to do with me at that point.”

He also seemed to confirm rumors that he once had a thing with Kerry Washington by releasing a bashful giggle.

“Easy, easy. Ain’t no scandal here. She’s married now.”

Out of all of his celebrity exes, Common says his mama loved Taraji the most.

“My mother loved Taraji and funny enough she got cool with Serena even more after we broke up.”
