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!

Nipsey Hussle’s Baby Mama Says She’s NOT An Bad Parent

Nipsey Hussle’s entire family has joined forces to get full custody of his 10-year-old daughter Emani, but her mother says that she’s perfectly capable of caring for her daughter.

via TMZ:

Tanisha Foster says in legal docs, obtained by TMZ, she and Nipsey shared responsibility for parenting 10-year-old Emani.

She seems to be rebutting the family’s contention she’s not capable of caring for the child, saying they are ignoring the fact Nipsey provided for her … setting her up in an apartment and providing for her livelihood. She’s insinuating she’s been cut off and that’s not what Nipsey would want.

She also says, she’s not the only person involved in the case with a “problem past,” but she says she’s choosing not to “sling mud.” 

She says she can’t pay rent, she’s been cut off financially and is in desperate shape. Foster notes the lifestyle she and Emani were used to before Nipsey’s death won’t be the same … but she is willing to make it work to the best of her ability. She’s asking the judge to at least give her visitation rights

Foster says, “If everyone was truly interested in doing what is best for Emani, they would treat me as her mother and not in the manner that they have.

Nipsey’s family was awarded temporary custody of Emani, claiming Tanisha is an unfit mother.

I don’t feel like the family would be going through all this if they believed Emani was safe with her mother — do you?

Common Reveals He Was Molested As A Child In New Tell All Book

Common has opened about his childhood that sadly included being molested by a family friend when he was a child.

via Page Six:

Two years ago, the rapper was workshopping a scene for his role in “The Tale” with actress Laura Dern when he suddenly remembered the hair-raising moment from his past, he revealed in his new memoir “Let Love Have the Last Word.”

“One day, while talking through the script with Laura, old memories surprisingly flashed in my mind,” he wrote, according to People. “I caught my breath and just kept looping the memories over and over, like rewinding an old VHS tape…I said ‘Laura, I think I was abused.’”

The Grammy-winner said the incident happened when he was about 9 or 10 years old when he was growing up in Chicago.

“I was excited for a road trip I was about to take with my family. My mother; my godmother, Barbara; her son and my godbrother Skeet; and his relative, who I’ll call Brandon.”

When he arrived at his Aunt’s home in Cleveland, Common recalled how he and Brandon had to share a bed one night on the trip.

“At some point I felt Brandon’s hand on me,” he wrote. “I pushed him away. I don’t remember saying a whole lot besides ‘No, no, no.’”

The artist wrote that no matter how much he protested, the alleged abuser would not let up.

“He kept saying ‘It’s okay, It’s okay,’ as he pulled down my shorts and molested me. After he stopped he kept asking me to perform it on him. I kept repeating ‘No’ and pushing him away,” he wrote. “I felt a deep and sudden shame for what happened.”

Common, 47, believes he “buried” the memory of the assault, but is now seeking professional help to cope.

“I just pushed the whole thing out of my head,” he revealed. “Maybe it’s a matter of survival–Even now, two years after that flash resurgence of memories, as I’m writing, I’m still working through all of this in myself and with my therapist.”

While the star has never confronted Brandon about his devastating actions, and has not seen the alleged abuser in more than 25 years, Common says he has learned to forgive.

“I want to be a person who helps break cycles of violence,” he wrote. “This is love in action and I intend to practice it.”

Wish him nothing but healing and mental peace.

Monica Files for Divorce From Husband Shannon Brown

Monica Brown has left her husband, former NBA player Shannon Brown.

The singer has filed for divorce.

via TMZ:

The singer filed the paperwork earlier this month in Atlanta. Monica and Shannon have a 5-year-old daughter named Laiyah together, and she has 2 sons from a previous relationship with rapper Rocko.

So far there are no details on whether she’s seeking child or spousal support … but we’ve learned Monica was unsuccessful in sealing the divorce docs.

The couple wed in 2010, but there was speculation they were separated in October 2018 … until she shared a loving photo of the 2 together on Instagram. She hasn’t been wearing her ring in Instagram photos for a few weeks though.

Monica famously claimed that Shannon — best known for his time with the Lakers — performed better on the court after he had sex with her … especially when he played for the Phoenix Suns.

I didnt see this coming.
