The Jump Off Chronicles: Kanye’s Alleged Mistress Opens & Deletes Twitter Accounts To Tell Her Story

Oh to be young and thirsty. Yesterday, we sat around the office shocked at how much attention Kanye West’s alleged mistress, Leyla Ghobadi was getting. The girl was in The New York Post, The Daily News, discussed on “The View,” every blog you can think of and much, much more. She was everywhere. And we really couldn’t understand it. In case you somehow missed it, the 24 year old Canadian model stirred up a windstorm yesterday when Star Magazine released quotes from their June 24 cover story claiming that Ghobadi slept with Kanye while he was dating Kim Kardashian and again even after she was pregnant.

According to Ghobadi, the story, which is full of sinkhole sized gaps, is that Kanye saw Ghobadi sitting in the front row during his Revel concert in Atlantic City. Kanye instructed a stagehand to pull Ghobadi from the crowd and from there, smashing ensued. She says they’ve gotten together a few times after that as well.

Kanye’s reps have since denied the affair releasing a statement to TMZ:

“This most recent attack on Kanye West and his family is totally without merit. It’s a blatant attempt by a misguided individual who is clearly seeking publicity, and another in a series of malicious stories drummed up by non-credible ‘news’ sources. This is a sad attempt to hurt two people trying to live their lives.” 

Personally, I’m surprised Kanye had his people speak on this, considering the woman has no proof of an affair. Star Magazine’s own editor-in-chief, James Heidenry confirmed Ghobadi, a spa worker, was paid for her story and didn’t take a lie detector to prove its authenticity. Star frequently administers lie detector tests to support a source’s story. Heidenry even said the magazine didn’t verify whether the messages Ghobadi claimed were from Kanye actually came from him. “I forget if she either lost her phone or her phone broke. One of those two,” Heidenry said.

It’s pretty pathetic actually. In this digital age we live in, don’t talk about having an affair when you have no visible proof to support your claims. It’s lazy. All of this reeks of a struggle model/spa worker trying to do anything to get some shine. And if you don’t believe me, check out the tweets Ghobadi sent out attempting to draw further attention to the story and herself.

Later, she deleted this account and opened another claiming the first one was receiving too much hate. On the second Twitter account Leyla said that once she reaches 1,000 followers, she’ll reveal the real proof that she and Kanye had a thing going on. She also apologized to Kim. A real class act.
Only time will tell whether this woman is telling the truth or not about she and Kanye; but right now her feeble attempts at shopping her modeling pics around and soliciting Twitter followers just appears altogether messy.
But let’s step away from her for a moment I do think people were so quick to run with this unfounded story because folks are still trying to put their finger on the whole Kimye relationship. Is it for publicity? Do they really love each other? How the hell did this happen? etc So for her to throw a wrench into an already confusing relationship was bound to gain some attention, even if it turns out to be completely fabricated.
Now we know her name and she has people talking and discussing her every move. Maybe she’s not as basic as she appears.

Dwyane Wade Is Officially Having The Worst Week Ever

Dwyane Wade may appear to always be cool and calm despite the rumors and drama surrounding his personal life, but I imagine this week he’s having a pretty tough time trying to walk around without a frown on his face. Ever since Sunday, D Wade has been fighting off one rumor or another, essentially making what started off as an all-star week, a hot a** mess. Let’s break down the real heat this NBA player has been dealing with.

“OK, Well F**k you!”

D Wade’s problems started Sunday night with Lil Wayne’s highly publicized rant during the All-Star game. Now it could easily be said that Chris Bosh got the shortest end of Weezy’s verbal stick, but Dwyane Wade was ished on a bit too.

Though Wayne apologized for some of the things he said — like eff Lebron — he made it clear that he’s still very much eff the Miami Heat, and Dwyane Wade in particular, going off about an altercation they had the previous week:

“I was at the game, rooting for the Lakers, saying ‘Chris Bosh you can’t hit a shot; D-Wade stop crying,’ I’m saying whatever I wanna say, I’m a fan of who I’m a fan of,” he explained. “Then Dwyane Wade comes over and he looks at me. I said, ‘Y’all don’t f**k with me, so I don’t f**k with ya’ll. Yall don’t f**k with me.’ [Wade] looked me dead in my eye and his exact words were, ‘We don’t.’ He didn’t say, ‘I don’t,’ he said, ‘We don’t.’ So I said ‘OK, well f**k you’ then. He said ‘well f**k you.'”

The Jump-off

Someone who sent a more subliminal eff you to Dwayne Wade this week was his alleged groupie who sent a very (non) convincing open letter to MediaTakeOut about their relationship. What started out as somewhat of a thank you to Dwyane quickly turned ugly when the woman referenced his girl Gabrielle, saying “Ohh yea, hi Ms. Union. Good too see you stuck around and have a few more pieces of clothing inside of his house.” Wonder how he explained that one.

Anbody have an inhaler?

Perhaps the award for shade throwing goes to the woman who has been a thorn in Wade’s side for like a decade now — his ex-wife Siohvaughn Wade. The Wades just can’t seem to stay out of court for one reason or another and this time around they’ll be facing a judge because Siohvaugh filed documents claiming Dwyande is putting their children, of which he has full custody, in danger. Specifically, she said:

“[Dwyane] recklessly failed to provide the five and ten-year-old children with any medication for a life-threatening illness.”

The life-saying medication is an inhaler for their sons’ asthma, but by the lack of response from Dwyane’s camp, I’m going to assume they aren’t even bothering to dignify this claim with a defense.

Likewise, he hasn’t bothered to respond to the groupie jump-off rumors either, but Gabby did, defending her relationship and calling the ish starter a “loon” so maybe Dwyane’s week hasn’t been so bad after all.

‘Basketball Wives’ & the Twisted Psychology of the Jump-Off

March 11th, 2011 - By Dr. Phoenyx Austin

I have to admit it- I watch reality TV. It’s a guilty pleasure. Why? I’m completely fascinated by it. Maybe it’s my background in psych or because I succumb to the human tendency to look at a train wreck, or both- but whatever the case, I watch reality TV. So I decided to write about a clip of Tami Roman on “Basketball Wives.” It was a much talked about clip of Tami fighting another cast mate, Evelyn, after she disclosed sleeping with Tami’s ex husband (while they were married). The two bickered back and forth (as expected). Tami expressed her anger and disbelief (as expected), but then Evelyn snapped back with “You were a non-factor Beyotch!” Whoa! (not so expected). Now, in all my years of reality TV and real life that remark ranked as one of the coldest displays I’d ever seen from one woman to another. I thought I had a tough stomach, but I must admit that Evelyn’s stone cold lack of empathy or remorse evoked a type of reflex reaction that left me cringing. And I’ll share why.
