Chrisette Michele Reveals Why She Got Divorced

Chrisette Michele is opening up about her recent divorce. The “Epiphany” singer wed her manager at the time, Doug “Biggs” Ellison in 2016, before they split in 2018.

In details she tells the story that they tied the knot in Las Vegas and that while she had experienced much success by then, she was still very immature.

She shares,

Aston Martin Music drops. I’m in LA, a small-time millionaire, Grammy award-winning, and happily dating “grown-ups” but… I’m a child. A very successful… kid. Aaaaand, it literally never occurred to me that I’d missed a step until… Wedding Bells in Vegas (circa: 2016-2018). I walked down the aisle to “Love You Like A Love Song”, a techno club record TOTALLY meant for high heeled, couch dancing at LIV in Miami (or maybe Lavo in Vegas). Childish.”

She added after their divorce, she realized that he desired things that typically come with a traditional marriage (i.e. living in the same city and having children).

“I’m divorced now. I think I got married to try adulting on for size. Didn’t fit. My ex had latched onto the idea that adulting was a “thing”, and I’d never gotten the memo. Sure I brought home fairly large slabs of bacon, made up the bed and opened a few businesses but… it wasn’t until after we divorced that I realized he had the intentions of living in the same city, raising small opinionated beasts who would grow IN MY STOMACH, and eating at the same restaurant every Sunday.”

She ultimately revealed she’s not a fan of “settling down” at all.

“Apparently this soul quelling idea is called … “settling down”. Eeek… I just threw up in my mouth a little.”

“One of my girlfriends text me. She said, “I’m still hoping for magic for you.” She was talking about love. I wanted to say, “Is it ok for a woman not to be thinking about marriage for the same amount of time as any given man?”. I wanted to ask, “Is it enough for me to love traveling, meeting new people and long lavish walks thru Whole Foods?”. Am I “not grown-up”, if I’m not constantly wondering about love and a home for 2? To avoid experiencing normal “Yes I’m Judging You” thoughts from my home gurl, I said, “I’m not pressed”. To recreate my whole existence to fit into someone else’s? And then be stuck in one place forever? Yeah. No. Not right now.”

Chrisette, who shared that her own parents have been married for nearly 40 years, adding that she’s not against having “A Couple of Forevers” in her own life in the future, but she’s not after it right now.

Maybe I’ll be SHOCKED into a Couple of Forevers. My love language is touch and I love to cuddle. Love is…nice. I’m open minded. I’ll try new things… but ummm… it’s quite likely too late that I’ll ever grow up. I skipped over that part of my twenties and I’m not sure you ever get that back. I’m “humaning” (stole that ”word” from a pal). This is MY human experience. I’m patient enough to watch my life unfold, trust God to forgive, reveal and restore and move forward. I fall. I get embarrassed. I stay at moms, eat good, then take my vitamins and get back out there. Am I “on the market”? You can’t buy me. Am I “single”? I’m complete. Loving me is complicated, mostly because I’m content. Kids don’t love people because they have a nice house and diamonds. Kids love people because they smile, laugh at their jokes, spend time on the couch and at the movies. I’m a kid that way… don’t need anything but the simple, beautiful, present human.”

And from the sounds of it, sis just fine with being single ….LET HER BE!

Cleaning House : Ari Lennox Is Looking For New Management And Lawyer

Ari Lennox‘s team a whole MESS.? Apparently the Dreamville starlet with one of the best albums
this year is looking to replace both her lawyer and manager. She took to Twitter to break some ppl off:

“LOOKING FOR A LAWYER AND NEW MANAGEMENT.”

She continued:

“I’m so happy to know who truly cares about my well being. It’s d*mn sure not certain people that I thought…People want to be there for the accolades but not the real grind. People love you when you’re the sweet baby doll but not when you’re human. Don’t want no more fake soulless sh*t around me.”

Just weeks ago, she shockingly declared that she was over the music industry, saying that she was done performing live.

Ari tweeted:

“After this year I’ll continue to drop music. But I’m not performing anymore outside of ig live or YouTube. God is good. I will pay back what was offered to me but literally I’m too thorough to be playing with my energy. People don’t know what happens behind the scenes.”

But, when her fellow industry newbie, Summer Walker, expressed the same feelings – she, ironically, encouraged her to keep going

The music industry is like a drug , once yo7 try it if your not strong its will F*CK you up!

It’s Over! Kenya Moore And Husband Marc Daly Split

Kenya Moore and Marc Daly have called it quits.

The split comes just two years after ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’ star tied the knot.

via People:

Moore, 48, and Daly, 49, have been married since June 2017, when they tied the knot in a romantic sunset ceremony on a St. Lucia beach.

Their separation comes less than a year after Moore gave birth to their first child, daughter Brooklyn Doris Daly, on Nov. 4, 2018.

In exclusive statements to PEOPLE, both Moore and Daily asked for privacy.

“It is with profound sadness that I regret to inform my fans that I am divorcing my husband Marc Daly,” Moore said. “Due to recent and ongoing circumstances, I can no longer continue in the marriage. My sole concern and focus is and will always be my daughter, Brooklyn, my miracle baby. She was made in love and true commitment. I ask for our privacy to be respected moving forward. “

Said Daly: “I have come to the difficult decision to separate from Kenya at this time. Our daughter has two parents that love her very much and in her best interests, this situation should remain as private as possible. I cherish our family’s good times together and will continue to co-parent in a loving way. Rumors, innuendo or false accusations only serve to hurt our family and will be addressed through counsel as the law permits. Please respect our privacy during this challenging period.”

Issa Rae Will Produce And Star In A ‘Set It Off’ Remake

Word on the street is that Issa Rae is in the early development on a remake of one of our beloved favorites “Set If Off”  — originally starring Jada Pinkett Smith, Queen Latifah, Vivica Fox and Kimberly Elise.

Issa will produce and also has plans to star in the film.  Montrel McKay (Issa Rae Productions) will produce alongside Issa.

via Variety:

“Set It Off,” directed by F. Gary Gray, was a solid performer at the box office with a $41 million gross on a $9 million budget for a story about four close friends who pull off a series of successful bank robberies in Los Angeles, thanks to the inside knowledge provide by Fox’s bank teller character. “Set It Off” helped propel the careers of all four lead actresses and Gray.

Rae starred in the Fox drama “The Hate U Give” as activist April Ofrah, who helps Amandla Stenberg’s character find her voice and speak up. She and Larry Wilmore created HBO’s “Insecure,” which follows the friendship of two women as they deal with their real-life flaws and a seemingly endless series of uncomfortable everyday experiences. The series has aired for four seasons.

Why must she insist on messing with this. I hate remakes of classics. Leave it a alone Sis
