Rapper Fabolous celebrated his 36th birthday with clever Great Gatsby-themed celebration, The Great Fabsby. The Brooklyn rapper showed up to the adorable retro event with his lovely lady, former Love & Hip Hop star Emily B, on his arm. Other celebrity guests included DJ Clue, Meek Millz, Swizz Beatz and Adrienne Bailon. They really look like they had an amazing time. Doesn’t Emily look stunning?
Check out some photos from the adorable shindig on the following pages.
Could it be that after hanging around for all these years, Emily B is finally going to marry her “dream man,” Fabolous?
A few days ago, Emily regrammed a picture and in it, clear as day, was a ring on Emily’s ring finger. In fact, her hand almost seems strategically placed so that everyone wold be able to see it.
This would great for Emily, especially since Fab has been a bit vocal about his views on marriage which makes him look on the fence about it. Although Emily has always expressed her interest in marrying him, Fab has not been swayed by it at all.
I know some of you are probably thinking that it could be “just a ring” that she has on her ring finger because that’s what some women do, but here’s the thing about Emily: she’s never really done that. Marriage is very important to her and the “fake ring” thing isn’t her style.
So maybe this is it. Maybe Fab has finally decided he is ready to change Emily’s last name.
Do you think Emily B and Fabolous are finally going to walk down the aisle?
What ‘Chu Say Boo? Caption This Pic Of Emily B And An Unenthused Fabolous Having Family Night At “Smurfs” Premiere
If you’ll recall, back when Emily Bustamante used to star on Love and Hip Hop New York, one of her major issues with her relationship with Fabolous (aside from the fact that he cheated on her often) was that he would keep their relationship in the background. His fans didn’t know he had a girlfriend and that they had been together since 2001, and even after she gave birth to their son, Johan, he still wouldn’t take her out with him on the red carpet or to events…
But fast forward to 2013, just a couple days ago at that, and it seems like Fab has finally decided to do right by his lady. The rapper took Emily B and Johan to a screening of The Smurfs 2 over the weekend, but we just couldn’t help but wonder why he is looking so…ready to go? Initially, I thought it was just in this particular picture (and maybe he was even tired…or high), but in every other one I found, he barely gave a smirk (except for when he was standing by himself on the blue carpet). Maybe he still wasn’t ready to be all out in the open with his family, but they’re definitely a cute one!
How would you caption this pic of Fab?
First, let me say that I never envisioned myself going to Summer Jam. I’m a Hip Hop fan as much as the next person but being around other Hip Hop fans, in certain settings isn’t necessarily something that appeals to me. In other words, there’s a certain level of hood that one should expect at these type of events; and though observing and participating in this behavior can be fun, in excess it’s a bit much for me. But even still when an associate said she might have tickets for my sister and I to attend the show, I said yes before I really thought about what I was agreeing to. By the time Sunday arrived, and we were sure we were going to get the tickets, I started feeling a little apprehension. But since my sister was so excited about going, I decided to take one for the team. And even though, I sucked it up and made the trek, my apprehension was warranted. There was confusion and plenty ratch to go around. But at the end of the night, I had to agree the entire experience was fun…very fun.
Here’s how it all went down.
First my sister and I had to figure out how to get from the city to New Jersey. We made it to Port Authority only to be sent on a whirlwind mission to buy bus tickets. First we were on the ground floor, then we went upstairs. Then an attendant told us we needed to go back downstairs. Once we found the correct place to buy our ticket, stood in line and got to the window, the attendant told us he only accepted cash, despite the fact there was both a Visa and Mastercard emblem on the window. So we had to leave Port Authority to get cash.
As we were walking out the door to get to the ATM, a man, who appeared to be homeless, looked up at me from his spot on the ground and asked with all sincerity,
“Excuse me miss, can I have some coochie?”
As someone who was already apprehensive about the whole day, this was a bad, bad omen. I was too ready to go home and might have even mentioned this fact to my sister a couple of times.
But we pressed on.
As we were waiting in line to purchase tickets, we had to endure a man describe his recent sexual excursion with an Asian woman from last week. After listening to him imitating her sex noises, we bought our tickets and headed for the bus. At this point, I’d calmed down from the earlier assault and decided to enjoy the day as a social experiment, a chance to people watch.
After a 15 minute drive, we got to Met Life stadium. Just walking through the parking lot was an experience in and of itself. There were several barbeque grills set up, red Solo cups littered the ground, men flexed in drop top cars that had just been washed and to top it all off, there was a woman standing on the roof of a car dancing for her life. I had to smile (and snap a few pictures) thinking this was a scene straight out of The Fresh Prince and Jazzy Jeff’s “Summertime.”
‘I Wouldn’t Want To Move Forward With Something I Was Unsure About:’ Fab Is Still Apprehensive About Marriage
Although in previous interviews, it seemed as if Brooklyn rapper Fabolous would never tie the knot, the 35-year-old lyricist recently revealed in an interview with Vlad TV that he isn’t opposed to marriage, he just wants to be sure that he’s undoubtedly ready to make the leap. He also spilled on his current relationship with his reality star girlfriend/baby mama Emily B. Check out some of what he had to say below.
On his current relationship with Emily B.:
“We have a child together. That’s my lady, you know we are just raising a five year old boy, so it’s simple as that. Five year olds are a handful, so we both need each other in that sense.”
On seeming like he’s anti-marriage:
“I didn’t say I won’t ever get married. If it presents itself and I’m ready to do that, I would. I think marriage is a great thing and I think a lot of people don’t respect it the same way that I respect it.
Some people just want to get married because it’s a nice thing to do. It’s a way to show that you love somebody, but they don’t see all of the things that come with marriage and the mind state it takes to be in a marriage. People will get married and get divorced three months later. I wouldn’t want to move forward with something that I was unsure about on that high of a level.
It’s a strong thing. It’s a commitment with you, the lady, and God. It’s something that you should look and feel like you are totally ready for and not just do it because it is the thing to do and “I want to make my friends jealous.”
On not being as “thirsty” as he used to be:
“When you first become an artist and it’s women around you, you are not used to that kind of activity. So, 12 years later, in my state, I am not as thirsty as you would be in your first year. Your first year, things are just swinging your way.
I was in high school when I first got started and I was just taking everything as it came to me. As things slow down and you start maturing, you have a little more direction of what you want to do.”
On men and women viewing marriage differently:
“I think even for a man in general, men are later to figure out when they want to make that move. Women are raised in the Cinderella fairy tale house. They ready to get married as soon as possible. Men, I think it takes maturity for them to figure out that this is the person I want to be with, this is who makes me happy. I rather have this, than all of this. When you figure that out then it happens.
If you look at Jay and Beyonce, Jay was 40, nobody ever [focuses] on that. He had his time to play and then he figured it out.”

What were these celebrities thinking when they made these silly comments? Did they really think the other person would laugh it off or not react. We’re sure they will think twice before they open their big mouths again or do something else outrageous.

You know, sometimes we have the one that we just don’t want to get away. Maybe we think they’re our “true love” or maybe it’s the “blinding” sex but we’ve got to keep that “one” around. Celebrities are no different and they want to keep that “ol’ thang” around them. Check out some celebs who go back and forth to their flames. What other celebs keep breaking up and making up?
Former “Love & Hip Hop” star, Emily B appears to have had an amazing week as she celebrated her February 9th birthday over the course of the past six days. Among the festivities were multiple parties, including one celebration at Pink Elephant in New York City and box seats at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center with boyfriend Fabolous. The couple also spent Valentine’s Day together, celebrating at The Noir with pal Adrienne Bailon. Both Fab and Adrienne used their social networking pages to show Em some love.
“ Happy Birthday Emily!!!!!!! If only people REALLY understood the friendship we have… Our long talks & the laughter we’ve shared over the years! I’m blessed to call you a friend… AKA Sister Wife! To a new year of Life, Love, & Blessings! @Emilyb #HBD #Friendship #Aquarius Great Times,” Bailon tweeted.
Of course, Adrienne’s “sister wife” reference doesn’t help the rumor that she and Em take turns with Fab, but we’ll pretend we didn’t see that, for now. Fab also utilized his Instagram page to send his boo some flirty birthday love.
“Happy Birthday to @emilyb_!! I love basketball, good movies, fly clothes, nice cars, vodka, and YOU!”
Em also sent out a few tweets, letting it be known that she was celebrating her man.
It seems like things have been looking up for Fabolous and Emily since her departure from VH1′s “Love & Hip Hop”. He even appears to be somewhat claiming her these days…Although, there is the questionable song, “Want You Back” with Joe Budden and Teyana Taylor that he released back in December, which many speculate is about Em…
But, who can really keep up with these two?
In a very clear nod to former girlfriend aka “the closest thing to a wife,” Tahiry, Joe Budden recently solicited the help of fellow artists to jump on his new single. The song, which sounds a lot like “I’m On One,” features fellow rappers Fabolous and Lil Wayne. R&B crooner Tank is singing on the hook. As much as I wanted to dislike the song, it wasn’t half bad. And I could see myself dancing to it if it makes its way to the club circuit.
Take a listen and let us know what you think?
In case you were actually waiting around for Karrine Steffans to finish composing her super emotional and most likely über explicit memoir about her relationship with Lil Wayne, it looks like there will be another Hip Hop tell-all book hitting the streets soon to hold you over. At least until Karrine is done pouring out her soul on the pages of How To Make Love To A Martian. It seems that “Love and Hip Hop” star Winter Ramos, whom we will learn more about during tonight’s episode, is planning to release a tell-all book of her own entitled Game Over: My Love for Hip Hop. If you’re having a hard time recalling which one Winter is, she’s the one who made a couple of cameos last season as the assistant of rapper Fabolous.
The memoir is said to shed light on what it was like for her working in the music industry and of course, expose a few of her famous former lovers. The book’s description reads:
In Game Over, Winter puts all of her emotions on the page leaving no experience, emotional abuse, or former lover uncovered. From her days as assistant to rapper, Fabolous and friend to Jadakiss, to appearing on Love and Hip Hop and being Creative Costume Designer for Flavor unit Films, Winter delivers a tell-all book on her famous ex-lovers and experiences in the music industry. As the chick that was always in the mix and cool with everyone, Winter was privy to the cray beyond the videos, private flights, and limos that the cameras caught for us. Her reality and theirs was no game. Game Over is Winter’s cautionary tale for the next generation of young women who believe that the fabulous lives of celebrities unveiled in blogs and on reality television shows are all FIRE! Stay tuned, because this GAME is about to get real.
During tonight’s episode, she introduces herself in a rather questionable way that somewhat implies that she plans on spilling a lot of tea.
“I’m Winter Ramos. You guys may know me as Fab’s assistant, but I’ve been in the music industry for a really long time. I’ve worked with Puff Daddy, Biggie Smalls, Junior Mafia, DMX, Eve, Ja Rule, Ashanti, Irv Gotti… I’ve dated these guys, I’ve slept with them, I’ve worked for them. I know the girlfriend, I know the baby mother, I know the wife. I even know the side chick.”
She also revealed that her “friend” Jadakiss, who is also a rather large part of the book is actually the one who suggested that she pen the tell-all. The book’s release date is April 2nd.
Many feel that the whole concept of women coming out and exposing industry insiders is completely played. But I believe that for every tell-all, there’s a nosy person who will buy it.
