Tyrese Gibson surprise social media with his major announcement of marriage.
Gibson and his bride were seen at a charity event in December of last year. The media did not make much of the image because they did not look like they were together and until recently on Wendy Williams, he's maintained that he was single and waiting for his wife. This is Gibson second marriage. His divorce was terrible (read more on that below). It makes sense to why Gibson decided to keep his relationship private.
In a short clip posted on his social media pages (see below), Gibson shared beautiful images of his bride and their special day.
In the clip, Gibson shared images of Televangelist Creflo Dollar and his wife Taffi L. Dollar who officiated the wedding. Here's a little bit about her. She's a New Jersey native, name Samantha Lee. Who is African-American, Jamaican and Ecuadorian. Lee Graduated from the University of Georgia (UGA) with a Master's degree in social work.
She joined forces to fight the epidemic of sex and human trafficking. She also provides counseling for inmates. Some of her cases handled are through and for the Georgia Division of Family and Children Services. Gibson in the past has been very vocal about wanting a wife and what he was looking for. He at one point posted on his social media outlets "Message To My Future Wife," (read below). Looks like Lee met his qualifications. They were introduced by friends.
Watch the short clip marriage announcement below.
Gibson was previously married to Norma Gibson from 2007-09. The two share nine-year-old daughter Shayla. During their terrible divorce according to news outlets, Gibson was 'worried sick' that Norma who is from Israel would take their daughter to her country permanently. He filed legal documents for protection against her trip because "under the law she's allowed to stay in Israel permanently. The country won't do anything to help the other parent."
After all the drama, the two were able to put their differences aside to focus on what was important and that's their daughter Shayla. Congratulations again to Tyrese and his wife.
Congratulations: Stunning Rihanna received the "2017 Harvard University Humanitarian of the Year award for her work supporting education and health care in the Caribbean and developing countries. “Rihanna has charitably built a state-of- the-art center for oncology and nuclear medicine to diagnose and treat breast cancer at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Bridgetown, Barbados,” said S. Allen Counter, the Harvard Foundation’s director.
Rihanna looked absolutely stunning as she arrived to received the prestigious award.
She begin her speech with, "So I made it to Harvard," as the crowd cheered, while giving face and playing with her hair. She continued, "Never thought I'd be able to say that in my life. But it feels good." Encouraging the students to give back, Rihanna said, "You don’t have to be rich to be a humanitarian. You don’t have to be rich to help somebody. You don’t gotta be famous. You don’t even have to be college-educated. I mean, I wish I was … especially today." As the audience laughed, she quickly responded, "I might come back." Suggesting that she might go to college after all. Watch the speech and read more about how Rihanna got here, below.
The full ceremony.
Rihanna speech only.
All of Rihanna charitable causes around the word, especially in her country Barbados, led to the award. "The singer, who was born on the island of Barbados in the Caribbean, created an oncology center to help treat breast cancer at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, in honor of her grandmother who died from cancer. She is the founder of the non-profit, 'The Clara Lionel Foundation Global Scholarship Program,' which assist in funding Caribbean-born students who attend college in the U.S. "She also backs the Global Partnership for Education and Global Citizen Project. The organization provides 'access to education in over 60 developing countries, giving priority to girls, and those affected by lack of access to education in the world today."
Rihanna recently visited Malawi "as part of her duties as the ambassador for Global Citizen and Global Partnership for Education (GPE). The pop star whose philanthropic activities started with the establishment of her foundation, Clara Lionel Foundation, spent her time with students and the board of directors of GPE. The foundation says its committed to the fight against injustice, inequality, and poverty, through education.
Actor Of The Post Note:
Always be true to who you are. All the negative things people have said about her, she smokes publicly, drink freely, is a Boss but will check anyone who disrespects her online. She's not afraid to be herself and with all that, she's making history, breaking records, winning icon awards, on list with number one hits that some of those people placed on a pedestal haven't seen. She's loved by many and a role model, although she doesn't want to be. Moral of the story, be you, stay true to yourself and your light will shine through. Never listen to the "you have to behave this way if you want to be this or that..." although there's true in those words, always be yourself. Look at her. Living her life openly and freely and still doing well. She's not in hiding or care too much about what people will think. Good woman or "BadGalRiRi," no matter your image, as long as you're staying true to who you are, knowing that there's a time and place, walking in your purpose and allowing God to order your steps, you will be just fine. Congratulations again Rihanna.

20th Century Women
Since ending her relationship with Meek Mill. Nicki Minaj started what most have called the "reunion tour." She decided to reconnect with those who were apart of her journey from the beginning.
One of those people were Gucci Mane. Before Young Money and her success, Gucci was in her life during her mixtape days. They stopped all communication due to claims made about the two being sexually active, which Nicki denied. Nicki went on to stardom, so did Gucci Mane.
Gucci and Nicki recently decided to place their differences aside and Nicki joined Gucci Mane on his most recent song, called "Make Love" listen below. On the track, Nicki raps about being the Queen of Rap as she's claimed for years, called another female rapper a "flop," and said how dare her call herself the Queen of Rap when she can barely sell records. Many felt that Nicki was speaking about Remy Ma.
Years ago, Remy Ma hit the scene and was doing amazing. She connected with Hip Hop legend Fat Joe and released "Lean Back" a few other songs and that solidified her name in Hip Hop.
While on the rise, another young lady representing New York also hit the scene. When Remy and Nicki Minaj took the above image, Nicki wasn't well known in the industry. She was an underground artist at the time. All was going well for Remy, but it all ended when she was involved in an altercation and ended in jail for stabbing another young lady. She spend six years and was released. Since her released, she's been on a love and career high.
Remy reconnected with Fat Joe and did "All The Way Up," which quickly went number one and became one of the hottest records out and still is. The record was even nominated for a Grammy.
Remy and her amazing husband rapper Papoose, seen at the Grammys in the above images, are doing great. Remy who also refer to herself as the Queen of Rap, recently said in "The Breakfast Club" interview below that she did not have a 'beef' with Nicki. She said that when she has issues with people, she will "call their names, mother name, children names and more." She's not with throwing subliminal shots, which is why the song Nicki did with Gucci Mane and the shots taken at her was very surprising.
Remy wasted no time and responded. Listen below.
In the song, she addressed Loyalty. Remy knows loyalty because her husband is the epitome of that word. He never left her side when she went to jail. He stayed, married her in jail and has managed her career since her returned.
Seen above with Remy and her husband is, Nicki ex Safaree. Remy continued to speak on Nicki lack of loyalty and Safaree.
The image above shows Nicki with her than Love, Safaree. Her ex Meek is also in the picture with his hand over Safaree shoulder. Safaree introduced Meek to Nicki because he wanted them to work together. During that time Nicki and Meek started becoming close. Safaree would confide in Meek about his relationship issues and Meek allegedly took the information back to Nicki because he wanted to be with her and was very vocal about it. Safaree eventually left Nicki and she started dating Meek shortly after.
Continuing her loyalty talk, Remy also spoke about Nicki now reconnecting with Drake because after Safaree, her lyrics are no longer as great and the features or remixes she's been on haven't made the same impact, compare to her time with Drake and Safaree. When Meek l ied on Drake, Nicki never stood up for him. She stood by her man, even taking shots at Drake. She did the same to Safaree and now that her career did not go as well as she thought it would without the support of those who helped make her successful, she decided to return to those same people as an opportunist would and instead of them shutting the door out on her like she did them, they welcomed her back with open arms hoping that she's learned her lesson.
Remy also talked about Nicki and Trey Songz being sexual, which he denied in the clip below. View more clips below of Memes, Nicki Twitter and Instagram responses.
Meanwhile, Remy is enjoying her time being a free woman, celebrating the released of her new album with Fat Joe and living. View more of Nicki responses and social media reaction below. This is Hip Hop. Wishing both ladies the best.
Social Media reactions below:
Thank God this turned out a little different and this child is alive. Most are aware that an off-duty Los Angeles Police Department officer fired his gun while holding 13-year-old Christian Dorscht in the midst of bystanders, who could've been hit (see videos below). Christian father, Johnny Dorscht, told the Orange County Weekly that "his son was coming to the defense of a girl who had been verbally attacked by the off-duty cop. He told the OC Weekly his son said the officer called the girl a “c*nt” for stepping on his grass and his son came to her defense." How embarrassing that a 13-year-old is telling a grown man how to speak to a lady, when it should've been the other way around. Great Job to Christian parents for raising a great young man.
Things quickly escalated and the officer grabbed the teen claiming he threatened to shoot him. A claim Christian mother Alma Jimenez denied. In the video below, Christian said he told the off-duty cop that he will sue him for roughing him up because he's a minor. The officer claimed he heard "Shoot, not Sue." Anaheim Police said in a statement that there's “ongoing issues with juveniles walking across the officer’s property.” Sadly, "Christian and an unnamed 15-year-old boy were arrested after the incident, but the officer was not charged." Charges against the officer is still a possibility, due to the ongoing investigation by The Orange County District Attorney’s office.
Protesters gathered to support Christian. Christian mom Alma told 'CBS8' "the gunshot was the most frightening part of it all. What if that bullet would have been, you know, I don’t know, a couple of inches closer." “I didn’t see him being aggressive. I saw him being as calm as he possibly could. I saw him trying to reason with the adult.” She continued with KTLA, “I still fear for our lives, for him living right down the street from us. Him being an officer.”Christian told Telemundo, “I thought I was going to die. I thought he was going to shoot me because he was mad.” We are all glad that the hashtag after Christian's name doesn't include a 'RIP' and that should be celebrated. What a sick man to have discharge his weapon with people around, let alone, children. This could have ended worse. We are glad that he is still here with us. Story developing.
Fix It Jesus: Karrueche Tran Files A Restraining Order Against Ex Chris Brown Claiming He "Threatened To Kill Her"
Karrueche Tran files a restraining order against ex Chris Brown Claiming He "Threatened To Kill Her." In the filing, Tran asked the judge to keep Brown away from her because Chris "told a few people that he was going to kill me and that he didn't want her to date anyone else."
Tran said that Brown allegedly said he was going to 'take me out' and 'threatened to shoot me.' She continued: "years ago Chris 'punched me in my stomach twice,' and 'pushed me down the stairs." The incidents happened while he was still on probation for his felony case after he physically assaulted Rihanna.
Tran also spoke about the video Brown posted on Instagram saying that if he still loves a woman, no one else is allow to date her even after the break up. Watch below.
Author Of The Post Feedback:
Tran was suffering from the case of "I Told You So" when she fell in love with Brown. Most warned her, that a man who beat another woman (Rihanna) so bad to the point were she lost consciousness, a woman who claimed that it wasn't his first time, but that time was severe, that's not a man that change overnight, but she was in love and felt that he would never do that to her. He did allegedly, but she didn't report it because after all that he did and was doing for her financially, if she reported the abuse, she could've send Brown to jail for a very long time because he was on probation at the time.
Images in the slide show above shows the time Brown visited a club where Tran was without her invite and attempted to talk to her after their breakup. Brown behavior base on other violations he's been apart of is very consistent with the same reason why he ended on probation after assaulting Rihanna. Excuse the extra clips and the language, but Brown original video was edited and the faces of his ex Rihanna and Tran were included as a reaction.
Although most felt Brown was joking in the above clip, his behavior towards Tran said otherwise. Brown quickly posted on social media that her claims are false. Wishing Tran the best.
Co-Parenting At It's Best: Amber Rose & Wiz Khalifa Celebrates Adorable Son Sebastian Birthday In Style
Happy Family: The way that Wiz Khalifa looks at his estranged wife Amber Rose is of pure joy and love. The two were seen celebrating their son Sebastian 4th birthday.
Family Costume: They looked great in the costume theme party. "Bash" is obsess with Halloween, so dressing up as characters came as no surprise. Amber Rose and her estranged husband Wiz Khalifa have had their share of ups and downs, but no matter what, they absolutely win the co-parenting award because they always managed to put their adorable son "Bash" first. This is exactly how it should be, but too often, people allow emotions to get in the way of being great parents and the children end up suffering the consequences in the end.
We've seen recently the meltdown between Robin Thicke and estrange wife Paula Patton (read more here). Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie and the list goes on. I'm glad that Amber and Wiz are setting a great example for him. Bash looked happy as he enjoyed his 4th Birthday celebration.
Wiz was seen placing a protective hand on Amber shoulder.
It was great seeing Lamar Odom out and about, looking healthy. After everything he's been through, it is truly amazing that he is still here with us and doing well.
Rose 'bestie' Blac Chyna was also there with her son King.
When Amer and Wiz were seen kissing during the Grammys weekend, many thought they had reconcile weeks after her spilt with new love. Read here for Rose response about this image.
Diddy and Kim Porter adorable twin girls were also in attendance.
Happy Birthday again Bash. Wishing you many more to come.
Fix It Jesus: Paula Patton Refused To Handover Son Julian To His Father Robin Thicke During A Supervised Visit Exchanged
Robin Thicke arrived thirty minutes early to pick up his son Julian during a scheduled visitation, but left empty handed. Thicke estranged wife, Paula Patton refused to turn their child over, saying that he did not want to go with his father.
Most are aware that after the death of Thicke's father, he was dragged into court by his estranged wife over child abuse allegations. During the proceedings, she discussed that she was abused during their marriage and that her son said that he was physically abused by his father.
Thicke fired back saying that Patton became upset when he banned her from his father funeral because she wanted to use it as a photo op. He said, where was all of this during their regular divorce proceedings. Child protected services closed their case against Thicke after finding no physical evidence of abuse towards his child by him, but the judge granted Patton temporary sole custody, granting Thicke supervised visit with his son.
Patton looked distraught in the above images, at one point placing her hand in the air, probably from paparazzi on the scene.
Thicke stayed in his car the entire time, due to a restraining order blocking him from having any physical contact with Patton.
This is sad. To watch two people who met at the age of 14 and 15, to get to this place is terrible. I'm praying that this child wasn't manipulated to speak these things against his father and I'm praying that the allegations of physical abused that was already thrown out isn't true either. He suffers in the end. Parents need to realized this. Children are no joke. Praying for him. I know Thicke is broken. Dealing with his father's death and now this. Stay strong you two and please think about the kid.
The Return Of A Queen: She never left, but this is her first live performance. The top images, shows Mariah Carey arrival at Jimmy Kimmel Live. Most watched in horror during Carey New Year Eve performance when her engineers ruined her performance. Standing in cold weather, thousands of screaming fans, she could not hear herself. She warned the technicians before going on stage that she couldn't hear herself, but they told her that she would be fine when the music started playing, but she wasn't.
Carey's performance with YG was incredible. The band was on point. She kept it simple and redeemed herself, although she did not have any redeeming to do. She's a legend and will always be one of the greatest. See a few images and watch the performance below.
To avoid copyrights issues, the YouTube user sped it up, so her lips doesn't match the music, but her performance was live. So proud of Mariah after what happened on New Year Eve. Watch the performance below.
Watch the actual video below.
