Even though Wiz Khalifa was just saying how his baby mama is fine and she acknowledged that she would like to work on their marriage, based on his most recent tweets, it seems like that ship has sailed.

Last night, Wiz took to Twitter to talk about how foul it is for a woman to keep a man’s child from him. And since he and Amber have a child together and they no longer live under the same roof, it wasn’t long before we assumed he must have been talking about his soon-to-be ex wife Amber Rose and their son Sebastian.

Here’s what he had to say.

Then, just forty minutes later, it seemed the situation had changed.

Well, people who had been following his tweets assumed that since he had seen Sebastian the beef was squashed and Wiz and Amber could get back to this much desired resolution. But Khalifa shut that down with a quickness.

And all my ladies said, “Ouch!”

Then he continued:

I don’t know what’s going on with these two. But I would sincerely hope that Amber Rose is not maliciously keeping their son away from his father. I don’t know her or anything but she just doesn’t seem like the type of person who would do that, particularly when she’s stated, publicly, that she’ll always love him and she would like for them to get back together. But things change quickly. Perhaps Amber got the hint that he wasn’t trying to reconcile and is trying to punish him for it. Really though, I find that incredibly hard to believe.

At the end of the day though, this seems quite embarrassing. Amber’s using social media to express her love–aside from initially revealing the affair–and Wiz is using the same vehicle to say he’s over it.

It just makes me sad.

“Law & Order: SVU” Star Tamara Tunie Announces Separation After 20 Years Of Marriage

After being married for twenty years, Tamara Tunie has announced that her marriage to jazz musician Gregory Generet has come to an end.

According to Page Six, the 55-year-old “Law and Order: SVU” actress confirmed the separation in a released statement, which reads:

“It is with a great deal of sadness that Gregory and I are going our separate ways. But, I am looking with optimism at what the future holds. As we transition through this new phase of our lives, we ask for privacy and thank you for your support.”

It’s currently unclear what pushed the Harlem residents to throw in towel. Just three years ago, the pair chatted with Essence about the longevity of their relationship.

“We’re not joined at the hip,” Generet, told the magazine. “We can be in the same room and be in different places in the room and not have to be near each other at every moment. Yet we can just feel each other’s presence all the time.”

The couple made it clear that time together is equally as important as time apart in a relationship.

“Even though you’re married, you’re still individuals,” said Tunie. “You still have to grow and nurture your individuality. And what you have to gather is the marriage. Each partner brings his or her own special joy to that marriage and that’s what helps the marriage grow. You have to continue to grow and evolve as individuals in order for your marriage to evolve. It takes two pillars to support a structure. If those two pillars become one, you have a structure that teeters.”

This is Tunie’s second marriage and she and Generet don’t have children together. Her first union to Greg Bouquett ended in 1991. It’s unfortunate that these two were not able to work through their issues, but we’re wishing them both the very best.

Nick Cannon Quietly Files For Divorce

Over the summer, many of us were shocked to hear whispers about the separation between Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon. But what started out as a rumor was soon proven to be factual when the actor had his infamous “Mariah” tattoo covered. After months of wondering whether or not the estranged couple would find a way to work through their differences, we’re sad to report that Nick Cannon has formally filed for divorce.

According to TMZ, the papers were filed on December 12. It’s unclear whether or not Mariah has responded to his filing yet, but according to some who claim to have knowledge of the split; the two have been hammering out the details of the divorce with their lawyers for quite some time now.

It’s also interesting to note that just a few weeks ago, Nick lashed out over reports that he’s in the process of recording an entire diss album dedicated to his ex-wife.

“I will never say anything negative about Mariah Carey,’ he tweeted. ‘We are forever a family rooted in love.”

And while Nick has been doing most of the talking, Mariah hasn’t publicly uttered a word about the split. We were hoping that they would be able to find a way to work things out, but hopefully this divorce will mean a fresh start for the both of them.

Chris Rock Reportedly Accuses Estranged Wife Of Preventing Him From Seeing Their Kids

We were all pretty shocked by the news of Chris Rock’s impending divorce, but according to TMZ, Tuesday’s filing had been in the making for some time now.

The gossip site recently got their hands on the comedian’s divorce petition, which was filed in New Jersey, and it reveals that he and estranged wife Malaak Compton-Rock sat down in November to split up community property.

According to his filing, there was a prenup signed when the pair first married in 1996, but it expired after their 18-year wedding anniversary. Chris explained that Malaak has the “ability to work and contribute to her own support,” which sounds like he’s going to try to keep spousal support payments to a minimum.

As far as custodial arrangements go, Chris is requesting shared legal and physical custody of their two daughters Lola, 12, and Zahra, 10. He has reportedly complained that so far, Malaak has attempted to keep him from seeing the girls.

With the exception of the custodial complaint, which we’re praying is the result of some sort of misunderstanding that can be quickly resolved, it seems like their divorce will be pretty clean. But truthfully, only time will tell how this will all pan out.

We’re wishing both Chris and Malaak the best.

With just days left in 2014, another Hollywood couple has announced that they’re calling it quits. Chris Rock, 49, and his wife of nearly 20 years have confirmed that they’re divorcing.

“After much contemplation and 19 years of marriage, Chris and I have decided to go our separate ways,” Malaak Compton-Rock, 45, said in a statement today, according to People. “Being fortunate enough to lead a of life of service by working with those most vulnerable makes me well aware of life’s blessings, even when faced with difficulties.”

The philanthropist went on to request privacy during this difficult time.

“While recognizing that this is a significant change, my children remain at the center of my life and their well-being is my top priority. It is in this spirit that I sincerely ask that the privacy of our family be respected during this transition in our lives.”

Chris has not directly spoken out about the split, but his attorney Robert S. Cohen did confirm the unfortunate news on his behalf.

“Chris Rock has filed for divorce from his wife, Malaak. This is a personal matter and Chris requests privacy as he and Malaak work through this process and focus on their family.”

It’s currently unclear what pushed the pair to throw in the towel after all of these years.

While we’re certainly sad to learn of the disintegration of yet another Hollywood marriage, perhaps this is all for the best.

Are you shocked by the news of Chris and Malaak’s split?

[Watch] Phaedra Says Apollo Has Multiple Personalities

Witnessing Apollo show up at a nightclub to beg and plead for his wife to show him some attention and to address the issues plaguing their marriage was pretty uncomfortable to watch. While discussing the awkward exchange on “Watch What Happens Live,” Phaedra told Andy Cohen that her estranged husband has multiple personalities and the one that showed up to the club that night was just one of many.

“Obviously, we’ve seen Apollo on the show become aggressive and he has been, during this time — obviously this was shot, 4 or 5 months ago — so he’s been up and down. He’s been on an emotional rollercoaster. So, he’s been up and down so it’s been quite difficult to deal with his personality, whichever one shows up.”

As for what she was thinking in the moment, Phaedra had this to say:

“I don’t know if anything was going through my mind, but more so just wondering why he would obviously come to this night club and try to have such a interesting conversation in the midst of all these people.”

Phaedra also explained that only one of their sons is aware of what’s going on regarding Apollo being in prison.

“Well, of course we have a one-year old. Mr. President is not aware.

“Ayden definitely knows that he’s in Kentucky and Apollo told him where he was so, he definitely is very aware. That’s very tough for a 4-year-old.”

Though she says that she speaks to her estranged husband 5 to 6 times per week, she made it clear that the divorce is definitely still happening.

“We’re amicably resolving this marriage […] resolving to dissolve.”

This, of course, disputes previous reports where Apollo hinted that there was some chance of reconciliation.

Tasha Smith Files For Divorce, Ordered To Pay Estranged Husband $50K In Spousal Support

Why Did I Get Married actress Tasha Smith is probably pondering that very question considering that she recently filed for divorce.

Unfortunately, the odds already don’t appear to be in her favor. According to TMZ, a judge has ordered the fiery beauty to fork up $50,000 in spousal support up front to estranged hubby Keith Douglas because she is the primary breadwinner in their household. This arrangement has supposedly been put in place to hold Douglas over until the more permanent details of their divorce can be straightened out. Perhaps he’ll use that money to move out of the couple’s marital home.

It became apparent that Smith and Douglas’ four-year marriage was deteriorating back in November when the Hollywood hubby requested a restraining order against her. According to Douglas, Smith frequently went into alcohol-induced rages that resulted in her threatening his life. Just days after Douglas’ restraining order was granted, Smith requested her own restraining order. In her filing, the actress also alleged that Douglas threatened her life, referred to her as a “f-cking d-ke” and accused her of sleeping with other women.

It’s unfortunate that it’s come to this with these two, but as we’ve learned from both Why Did I Get Married films, every relationship isn’t meant to last forever.

Nick Cannon dating rumors have been swirling ever since it was first confirmed that he and wife, Mariah Carey, would be ending their six-year marriage. The rumor mill has linked him to both Amber Rose, who is also currently going through a divorce, and “Wild N’ Out” model Brittany Dailey. However, the father of two insists that he’s nowhere near ready to begin dating again.

“I’m dating no one. I’m not even ready for that right now. I’m just trying to focus on my family and my children,” the actor told CNN.

Nick also admitted that he didn’t even really want to confirm their split to the public, but after a while, felt like he needed to.

“I never wanted to step out there and confirm or deny because it really wasn’t anyone else’s business,” he continued. “You have to speak on things because people are curious.”

And as he has done in previous interviews, Nick expressed that he, Mariah and the twins will always be a family and that they’re handling the divorce as a family would.

“We’re family and we’re human. We’re dealing with this as a family and we’ll forever be a family.”

They definitely appear to be handling things in a mature way. It’s even been reported that the foursome spent Thanksgiving together.

He’s At It Again: Brennan Clay Releases Sexts Allegedly Exchanged Between His Wife & Former Teammate

Earlier this week, we told you about Brennan Clay, the former college football player who accused his former teammate and friend DeMarco Murray, who now plays for the Dallas Cowboys, of sleeping with his wife. You can check out the full story here, but in short, Brennan discovered the alleged affair after he found some pretty sexual text messages exchanged between his wife and former friend.

Brennan has since taken back to Twitter to air out more details about the alleged affair by releasing screenshots from some of the text messages.

In the first message, texters, who are believed to DeMarco and Brennan’s wife, Gina, discuss plans to hook up and have sex while Brennan is out of town practicing with the San Diego Chargers.




As previously reported, Brennan has filed for divorce since learning of the alleged affair. The pair had only been married four months. Gina has yet to speak publicly about the allegations and reps for DeMarco have declined to comment as well.

Poor guy.

Deelishis Defends Relationship With Wiz Khalifa: “I’m Looked At As The Homewrecker”

Over Thanksgiving weekend, “Flavor of Love 2″ winner London “Deelishis” Charles released a questionable photo of herself hugged up with soon-to-be-divorced rapper Wiz Khalifa.

“It’s a Happy Holiday,” she captioned the photo.

Of course, this fueled rumors that the two are an item, or friends with benefits at the very least. This eventually led to folks questioning the timeline of their “relationship.” Especially considering that Amber Rose just announced her split from Wiz this summer and cited infidelity as the reason for their marriage being over. However, the reality star-turned-radio-host insists that she’s no “homewrecker.”

“He’s not married. Number one, he’s divorced and so am I. So you got two single people. I don’t know why they divorced,” she told Bijou Star.

“I don’t know why females have this issue with Deelishis. Had it been anybody else that he decided that he would like to take up a friendship with it would have been okay. But me? I’m looked at as the homewrecker. I haven’t wrecked anyone’s home.”

She also insists that she would be in favor of them getting back together.

“That’s not my business that’s between him and Amber, and to be honest if they decided to remarry or get back together, whatever the situation, I would totally respect it and be for it as I’ve spoken on my radio show. I’m all for love and happiness, I was a fan of their relationship from the beginning.”

While she admits that whatever they have going on is still in its early stages and she insists that they never had sex, the mother of two says that she would be open to possibly dating him.

“Wiz is a friend of mine. He’s a recent friend of mine,” she explained. “Instantly whenever I’m seen with someone they are automatically considered — not even that it’s my dude, they just jump right to sex. ‘Oh she’s effing this dude.’ I’m sorry, ‘She’s f–king this dude.’ No, I’ve never f–ked Wiz Khalifa. We’ve never had sex.”

As for where the relationship is heading, Deelishis had this to say:

“I don’t know. You never know. He’s a guy. He’s a single guy. Am I attracted to him? I’m attracted to who he is, yes. Is he attracted to who I am? I can believe so. And where’s the harm in that? There’s nothing wrong with Wiz Khalifa liking me or me liking Wiz Khalifa. I did not go into their household and start dating him. This was public knowledge that they had an incident, which they had divorced, or someone had filed for divorce and this was ending.”

And no, she doesn’t think that Amber would approve of whatever it is that they have going on.

“I don’t think she’s happy. […]At the start of any divorce, it doesn’t matter your reason for divorcing, in most cases you’re still a little sensitive once you see your ex-mate with someone. So I can imagine Amber isn’t the happiest person. But I’m not the demise of your relationship.”

“I’ve been a fan of hers so I don’t want to hurt her with this,” she continued. “I don’t want to hurt anybody.”
