Sources tell us Solis died Thursday in Texas, where he hails from, and we’re told he was surrounded by friends and family. 

Trina and Gabe wed in 2003 but divorced in 2015, and their on-again, off-again relationship was a frequent topic on the family’s reality show — “Braxton Family Values” — even after they divorced.

The former couple also appeared on an episode of “Iyanla: Fix My Life” earlier this year — more than 2 years after their split — to hash out their issues and work on a plan to finally move on.

In the episode, Gabe confronted Trina about her verbal abuse and bullying and let her know how it affected him during their marriage. Despite their rocky road … the 2 remained close friends.

We’re told Gabe’s health issues were kept under wraps and his passing comes as a surprise to many close to the family.

via Showbiz 411:

The family is asking for prayers and privacy.

Originally diagnosed with cancer in 2010, Aretha, who turned 76 in March, bravely battled back and refused to be knocked out by illness. Her last performance as on November 2, 2017 for the Elton John AIDS Foundation in New York. Her final public performance was at Philadelphia’s Mann Center in August 2017. It was a miraculous show as Aretha was already then fighting exhaustion and dehydration.

Aretha is surrounded by family and people close to her. She will be so missed as a mother, sister, friend, cousin. But her legacy is larger than life. It’s not just that Rolling Stone called her the number 1 singer of all time, or that she is the Queen of Soul. Long live the Queen.

Eco Styler Gel Has Ingredients That Cause Cancer?!

SHEIN -Your Online Fashion Jumpsuit

What In The Edges is going on?!? I thought I had heard it all when I heard that Eco Styler Gel could contain an ingredient that causes cancer! Ive read a few articles and watched a few videos.

I don’t know about you but the labels on most products are like reading chinese and I have no idea what the stuff listed really is unless i google it.  But thanks to the natural curly community online I was able to find out exactly what is in one of our favorite gel.

According to natural beauty vlogger, AlopeciaFreeWithJass, Eco Styler Gel does contain an agent that is known to cause cancer.  In a YouTube video she breaks down the ingredients in the popular gel and came across one troubling one, Tetrasodum EDTA. 

Tetrasodum is known for causing allergic reactions and is also linked to causing cancer if used.  This ingredient is also said to contain chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm.  Additionally, according to the “U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Cosmetics Ingredient Review (CIR), triethanolamine is best suited for products that should be washed off after application.”

Of course, smaller amounts of Tetrasodum are safe but are you willing to take the risk?
