Celebrities are people too. And sometimes people do things that just don’t make a whole lot of sense. Whether they realize it or not, these celebs are going to regret their foolishness eventually — some sooner rather than later. Unfortunately for them, you can’t press rewind once the paparazzi get involved.
Tia Norfleet made her mark in black history by becoming the first black race car driver. But then she made us all look bad when she was kicked out of NASCAR for lying about her identity to cover up a few drug and theft charges and faking her NASCAR racing license.
Tia also had a criminal past she tried to apologize for, saying:
“People make mistakes in their life and move forward and make a better way. I think things that I’ve done, people make mistakes, as a child, as a teen, and basically, it’s things that you may not be proud of but you move forward and you help others. And they may be in the same situation and you can relate and they can relate to you, and you help them as much as possible.”
But we still feel bad for all of the little black girls who looked up to Tia before they found out that she was a criminal and a liar.
Don’t Mess With Her Paper Trail! Hip Hop Manager Deb Antney Suing French Montana For $50k Over Secret Deals
When will people learn that Deb Antney is something like a gangster when it comes to managing rappers. If you do business behind her back and she doesn’t get her cut, you will pay.
According to TMZ, Antney is suing rapper French Montana for securing deals without her knowledge or consent. Subsequently, she was also cut out of her 20 percent management cut.
Deb is suing French for at least $50,000 in damages. The icing on the cake? He was served papers at an Atlanta concert earlier this week.
The suit, likely filed in Atlanta, states that French signed into an exclusive management deal with Deb’s company, Mizay Entertainment, in November 2010. She was to be responsible for all his deals and apparently French was pleased because he was quoted as saying she has the management thing “down pat.”
Unfortunately it didn’t work out at all. In fact, French has been managed by Gaby Acevedo since at least 2012 and often gets the credit for most deals involving French.
Antney, who is also rapper Waka Flocka’s mother, has been revered for years as a great manager, especially for hot, upcoming talent. Not only did she have a deal with French, but she also managed acts such as Gucci Mane and Nicki Minaj at the early points in their careers (some would argue that Gucci is still in the early point of his career but he’s had a fair amount of success in the south). She even tried to help jumpstart Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta co-star Rasheeda’s career but she chose to stick with her husband.
No word on how French or his team plans to respond.
French must not have heard about Deb: she will work hard for you but don’t cross her!
Rapper Waka Flocka Flame has decided to extend his reach beyond music and hopes to have a bigger impact on the nation by running for the 2016 presidential election — or so he says on Twitter.
“Running for the next presidential elections #InCaseYouDidntKnowAlready,” tweeted Wakayesterday. He also asked his followers: “Who finna [sic] be my VP?”
Although the rapper has yet to receive support from any politicians or parties, he has been showered with tweets from fans who support the rapper in his new venture.

There are some celebrity men who just seem to get a lot of women. While some of them may be moderately attractive, we suspect that if they didn’t have that moo-la that wouldn’t be baggin the women like they do.
You may know by now that I have a…primal attraction toward Waka. And while I think he’s a hood cutie, his unintelligible speech, ratchet lyrical content and the fact that his mom wears plastic hair make Waka pretty much undateable. And while he might have had a bit of luck before the fame because of his looks, if he didn’t have a successful rap career, most women wouldn’t pay Waka too much attention.
You know everybody has to put their two cents in on the Rihanna-Chris Brown situation eventually, and this morning that person was Waka Flocka. We know, it seems weird but the rapper stopped by The Breakfast Club to talk about his concert in NYC tonight and his upcoming album and somehow the convo turned to the R&B love triangle of the week. When the Power 105 hosts asked Flocka if he would have chosen Rihanna or Karrueche, he said:
“Damn sure ain’t going for Rihanna. Hell nah.”
Everybody was a little caught off guard by his reaction and when Charlamagne asked if he would have chosen Karrueche because he doesn’t think Rihanna is attractive, he added:
“It ain’t that I don’t think she’s bad, she got the history (referring to all the men she was linked to after she broke it off with Chris).
“I can’t judge nobody,” Waka added. “You don’t know what rocks for them. We ain’t in they beds. [But] If you got nookie you’re trying to kill somebody for, if you throwing bottles, that’s too good. You don’t need that. That thing got you throwing bottles? It got people throwing bottles at you, for that? Aww that’s over.”
As irrelevant as Waka Flocka and his opinion are to this entire situation (much like mine), I’m really not mad at what he said. Chris and Rihanna both have a high propensity for dysfunction and both have been wildin’ out a little (or a lot) since the break-up. Chris can’t be out here trying to fight everybody that looks at Rihanna if they do actually get back together — especially if it involves shutting down clubs and innocent casualties. But maybe these two actually being together will make them calm the eff down.
What do you think about what Waka Flocka said?
