We told you last month that sources who are close to Emily Bustamante and rapper Fabolous were saying that the couple was expecting another child. When the rumors came out, there was no response from either one of them, though Emily did post this right after the stories broke:  Emily

Despite all that, she didn’t refute the rumors. Instead, she waited until New Year’s Day to confirm that they do indeed have another child on the way. The beauty posted a picture of herself in a skintight red dress that showed off her curves–and a growing baby bump:  


Bustamante also went on a trip to Miami with their son, Johan, and while running around with him, took another picture of her new addition.

The two have been together since 2001, and after a rocky period (back when she was on “Love and Hip Hop New York”), they seem stronger than ever. Congratulations again to the couple on their growing family!

Fabolous And Emily B Are Expecting


Congratulations are apparently in order for rapper Fabolous and his longtime girlfriend, Emily Bustamante. According to our sister site Bossip, the former “Love and Hip Hop New York” star and stylist is in her second trimester, carrying the couple’s second child together. The source told Bossip that Emily is already showing, which is why her Instagram page features no full body shots as of late.

Emily and Fabolous’ first son Johan, is 6. Emily also has a 16-year-old daughter, Taina, from a previous relationship.

Congratulations to these two!

I don’t know about you, but I love and miss the ’90s. So when anyone tells me they’re having a ’90s party or event, I pull out my tights, my brightest colors, my chunky sweaters and my baby hair to participate in full effect. Unfortunately, I didn’t get an invite to Fabolous’ 37th birthday party this week (not cool, Fab, not cool…), but the rapper threw himself a ’90s party that included appearances from a lot of his famous friends, and of course, his lady, Emily B. Check out pics from what looked like a poppin’ party below, and on the next few pages:

With so many people going under the knife for plastic surgery to fix a flaw or starving themselves to death to conform with Hollywood’s super skinny standard, it’s refreshing that these celebs embrace their flaws.

We don’t consider a gap a flaw but at one time “Orange is the New Black” actress Uzo Aduba did. Thankfully, her mother set her straight about her look and the fact that it’s connected to her Nigeria roots and she never thought twice about it again.

Fabolous’ black Cadillac truck collided with an 18-wheel tracto trailer on a New York highway. Thankfully, he walked away from the frightening wreck nearly unscathed. Shortly following the accident, the Brooklyn rapper took to social media to share his experience with fans.

“I just survived a car accident on the Van Wyck in Queens, NY,” he wrote. “I wanna thank God for not only letting me walk away with a few bumps & bruises, but also for letting my driver Ruben & the two truck drivers involved walk away alive also.”

Fab went on to reveal that the accident was actually the first he’d ever experienced.

“This was my 1st time being in a car accident,” he added before expressing that the experienced has altered how he looks at things.

“It’s a very shocking experience & may change my outlook on how fast things can happen [when] you’re put into a life-threatening situations. Live, Love, & Celebrate Life. #Blessed”

We all have that one family member who will pop off at the drop of a dime and celebrities are no different. While these famous folks may know how to keep their composure, their wild siblings have no problem throwing down in a heartbeat.

Celebs With Wild Siblings



All anyone has been talking about the past few days is surveillance cameras catching Solange Knowles attacking her brother-in-law Jay Z while his wife and her sister Beyonce stood by and watched in an elevator following a Met Gala after party. While there’s no sound to support the video, it’s clear that Solange was none too happy with the rap mogul and let her feelings be known through slaps and kicks. Neither Jay Z, Solange nor Beyonce have released a statement about the incident.

As we witnessed a few months back for his The Great Gatsby-themed celebration, Fabolous and longtime girlfriend, Emily B, know how to throw a party. So considering that Em’s daughter, Taina, recently turned 16, it’s only natural that the hip hop couple would throw the high schooler the celebration of a lifetime.

This past weekend the teenage beauty enjoyed sweet sixteen party inspired by “Sex and the City” prequel, “The Carrie Diaries.” The bash was hosted by PYNK magazine. And judging by the pictures, everyone had a blast.

Former Diddy Assistant Karleen Roy Aims To Build A Business Empire Of Her Own

If you asked a group of people what their career aspirations were, most of them would probably say they’d want to work with a mogul like Sean Combs. That was once a dream for Karleen Roy too, but she’s already checked that one off her list. And now with the recent launch of her new luxury management company The Vanity Group (Twitter and Instagram), Roy has her sights set on higher ground: becoming a mogul herself.

Equipped with the “Navy Seals-like” training she received working as Combs’ executive assistant over the last five years, Roy launched her company with a lavish celebration at the Armand de Brignac showroom and is quickly building an impressive client roster with names like Fabolous, Ne-Yo, Adrienne Bailon and more.

Here, Roy talks about working for Combs, obstacles she encountered as she launched her company and where she hopes to be within the next few years.

Madame Noire (MN): What is The Vanity Group (TVG)?
Karleen Roy (KR): The Vanity Group is a luxury lifestyle management company. There are a lot of luxury lifestyle management companies out there, but our niche is that our brand personality is a bit more edgy, sexy and fresh. Someone has to preserve the sexy!

MN: What inspired you to create TVG?
KR: While I was in my position at Bad Boy as Mr. Combs’ executive assistant, I really loved my job and I loved that I could get just about anything done successfully. So from that, I started to think in the back of my mind that this, lifestyle management for well-known individuals, could develop into something bigger in a more unique way.

… At The Vanity Group we offer three services: bespoke event producing, luxury concierge services and finally, talent relations.

MN: What was one of the biggest obstacles you had to overcome to launch TVG?
KR: Entrepreneurship is something that a lot of people don’t understand or are afraid of. So starting off, I was fighting for respect and recognition that [The Vanity Group] was indeed my new job, my career and not just something I was doing on the side.

MN: Which TVG projects are you most proud of so far?
KR: I am proud that we got the opportunity to produce, Fabolous’ “Great Fabsby” birthday event in New York City. It was a huge success that we planned in less than 4 days – it was a miracle!

MN: You’ve worked with a lot of different entertainers and moguls besides Sean Combs: Ne-Yo, Adrienne Bailon and Fabolous among them. What advice would you give to someone who is interested in working with celebrities at this level?
KR: My advice for someone that is interested in working with celebrities is to know your place and do not get caught up in their life. You are there to work, not hang out and get comfortable.

MN: How has your former role as an assistant to Sean Combs paid off with your new business?
Roy: Working for Mr. Combs was the best training there is – like training for the Navy Seals. He’s the consummate professional so I’m thankful I was able to learn those skills because the [business] acumen I inherited is priceless. Also, a lot of my clients have come from people I met while working at Bad Boy. Relationships and referrals are key in this business.

MN: Who is your dream client?
Roy: My dream client would be either Magic Johnson or Oprah Winfrey. I respect the empire that they have built so it would be an honor for me to have them as a client.
