Our beloved Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) in America aren’t doing so hot financially. The demise of St. Paul’s College in 2013, a 125-year-old HBCU institution, served as a wake up call for the future of other Black academies. Who’s next? Well, according to Inside Philanthropy, Cheyney University — the oldest HBCU in the nation — is on the chopping block.
Many HBCUs are going through a financial hurricane: falling enrollment numbers, cuts in higher education funding, and a dearth of wealthy donor bases.
In 2013, Howard, Spelman, Hampton, Meharry Medical College, and Florida A&M all had a combined endowment of $1.3 billion. That may seem sufficient, but compare this number to the big guys, such as Harvard. The Ivy League collects an endowment of $30 billion.
In efforts to prevent an HBCU from becoming another St. Paul’s College, donors around the country have given scholarship packages to keep our Black academies afloat. Who are they? Here are some recent benefactors of our beloved HBCUs.

Hopefully there can be some healing before it’s too late.
There’s cheating and then there’s cheating. While it’s always wrong to dip out on a spouse or partner, these celebrity cheaters were especially wrong for betraying women who gave them their hearts and in some cases other vital organs!
Viewers watched a romance blossom between shop owner Ceaser and his tattoo artist Dutchess on VH1’s “Black Ink.” By the end of the first season, they were officially a couple, but then viewers also watched their union fracture and by the time the third season rolled around, Cease was dipping out on Dutchess, who revealed during season two that she suffered from a serious heart condition. Duchess found out about her man’s infidelity when the other woman left her an email. Dutchess called her and the two were on the phone together for over five hours. Cease was ceremoniously kicked out of their apartment.

Some stars have been with you since puberty or earlier. You might’ve heard one of their well-crafted verses when you experienced your first kiss, or nodded along sadly to one of their well-sung ballads after your first break up. Or, perhaps, you watched a certain film that uplifted you every single time, and you grew fond of the person cast in the lead role. Yes, these artist/actors found a neat place in your heart… that’s why it’s shocking when all of sudden they just disappear from the scene. They were killing it in their heyday, laying down track-after-track of generation defining hits, or they leading astounding roles in incredible movies, then they turned on ghost mode? Some of these celebrities quietly faded to into the background, while others disgracefully slide into oblivion, like Lindsay Lohan.
Tiger Woods was at the top of the world of golf for a long time, before it was discovered that Woods was spreading his seed around to every cheap piece of flesh that would have him, which ultimately destroyed his career, his marriage and his life. The Tiger days are now over.
As a result of tough times, many people have become frugal with their money but while that is normal behavior for everyday folks, these cheap celebrities have been accused of having short arms regardless of their deep pockets.
She may be a “Material Girl” but pop diva Madonna is stingy when it comes to tipping. Unfortunately, she’s been known to skip out on the bill without leaving a tip and when she does, sometimes Madonna’s math is a little off. According to one British tabloid, Madonna and her then-husband Guy Ritchie went out for a bite to eat. The bill for the duo came up to about $400 but Madonna, who is worth a reported $300 million, only left a tip of a measly $18, well short of the recommended 20% gratuity.
When will celebrities learn that once they sign on the dotted line for an endorsement deal, they have to walk a fine line and stay out of trouble? These stars found out the hard way, how their personal lives could negatively affect their bank accounts.
A few weeks ago Paula Deen found herself in a public relations nightmare after the transcript of her deposition in a racial and sexual harassment lawsuit leaked. When asked if she’s ever used the “N-word,” the Queen of Butter replied, “Yes, of course.” Although Deen tried her best to deny she was a racist, she was vilified in the media. As the story grew, one endorsement deal after another fell by the waist side. The Food Network opted not to renew Deen’s contract. Home Depot, Walmart, Target and Smithfield all abandoned ship. Once the second highest paid celebrity chef, it is estimated that Deen’s slip of the tongue could cost her as much as $12.5 million in earnings when the dust finally settles.
Some of Hollywood’s biggest stars have publicly battled with drug or alcohol but others have entered rehab for other underlying problems. These 15 celebs sought help for problems other than substance abuse.
Mariah Carey’s diva behavior is legendary but back in 2001, the “Beautiful” singer hit a low point in her career following the release of her semi-autobiographical movie Glitter. After the film tanked, Carey was dropped from her record label. Posting ominous messages on her website to her fans, it was clear something was wrong with Carey. Succumbing to the pressures of the industry, Mimi had a public meltdown and went into treatment. Fast forward four years and a new record deal later, Carey drops The Emancipation of Mimi, which wound up being the biggest album of that year, and returns to superstar status.

For their undeniable talent and charisma, athletes are some of our most adored public figures. But when they fall short of expectations by breaking laws, doing steroids, and otherwise acting out of character they can quickly go from beloved to hated – just as these 14 have.
Dating in Hollywood is hard ya’ll, and sometimes celebrity women have to go that extra mile to keep a good man at home. While the rest of us are wasting time cooking, cleaning and breaking him off, these chicks are handing out checks, razor blades and free all access passes to all the groupies their men can stand. Here are some of the most drastic ways the rich and famous are rumored to have tried to keep their boos from straying.
Pay His Way
Britney must be getting her dating tips from Love and Hip Hop. She keeps her side pieces in line with a pay check. She hired her new man David Lucado to be her personal assistant. A friend of the couple told Star magazine, “She’ll offer him a sweet deal so he’ll feel obligated to stick around.”
“D*mn, Why They Wanna Stick Me For My Paper?” Celebrities Who Lost Major Endorsement Deals For Acting A Fool
If Rick Ross and Lil Wayne have taught us anything, it’s that you had better watch your filthy mouth, because it could very well hurt your pockets. But they aren’t the first celebrities to get the boot from a company for acting a complete donkey. Or in the case of some of the celebrities on this list, for just being themselves. Here are 10 who lost lucrative endorsement deals over the years because of their antics.
It still makes me sad to think about how on top of the world Chris Brown USED to be. Back in 2008, he was the guy every mom wanted their young daughters to date, and he was blowing everybody’s mind with his great dance moves and catchy songs. But then that terrible altercation occurred the night before the Grammys in February of 2008, and his fame was forever altered. And of course, he was also hit in the pockets. Brown was dropped as the spokesperson for Wrigley’s gum, and while you might say, “Who cares about some Doublemint Gum?” if it wasn’t for writing jingle for the company, we would never have “Forever” (“Double your pleasure, double your fuuuuuun…”).
