T.I. and Tiny Call it Quits


This past weekend saw rapper T.I. and his wife Tiny throwing subliminal shade on Instagram. Clifford “T.I.” Harris, Jr., 33, posted the above message which fans took to mean he was breaking up with his wife of 4 years, Tameka “Tiny” Harris, 38. Part of the message reads: “Dis da 1st day of da rest of my life!!!! IG in da last 24hrs my life has changed!!!! No details necessary…. Just try & accept da change. Cuz it IS upon us.” Hours later, Tiny posted an image on her Instagram page that read: “It ain’t nothin to cut dat bitch off.”

According to SandraRose.com, the couple reportedly split on on Saturday shortly after arriving in Los Angeles to attend the 56th Annual Grammy Awards. T.I. was so distraught by the break up that he canceled his appearance on Sunday night’s live telecast of The Grammys where he was nominated for 3 awards. (more…)


Halle Berry Covers Ebony Magazine

Halle Berry is featured on the cover of the March 2011 issue of Ebony Magazine. This is right on time as Halle is smack in the middle of a custody dispute with her daughter Nahla’s  father, model Gabriel Aubry. They’ve been trading accusations back and forth for a couple of weeks now. Gabriel’s camp has accused Halle of being overly controlling and going into crazy bouts of anger. Halle’s camp has hit back with accusations of him calling her the “N” word. There have also been reports that he would go off the handle when his daughter was referred to as being “black”.

It really amazes me that one of the most beautiful women in the world finds it difficult to have a successful relationship. I used to think the men were mad to let a hottie like Halle go but now I’m not so sure. Could Halle be a difficult person to deal with? I wish I were a fly on the wall. In the interview, she opens up about her thoughts on her beauty, interracial relationships and considering her daughter to be black:

On Her Daughter’s Race
What I think is that that’s something she’s going to have to decide. I’m not going to put a label on it. I had to decide for myself and that’s what she’s going to have to decide-how she identifies herself in the world. And I think, largely, that will be based on how the world identifies her. That’s how I identified myself. But I feel like she’s Black. I’m Black and I’m her mother, and I believe in the one-drop theory. (more…)

Tiger and Elin Officially Divorced

We all saw this coming. Elin would have been stupid to stay. Tiger and Elin reached a settlement agreement way back at the beginning of July — July 3rd and 4th. The final judgment papers state that the marriage “is hereby dissolved because it is irretrievably broken.” The terms of the divorce settlement were not released to the public, but it is speculated that Elin will receive anywhere from $100 million to five times that amount in assets. Elin has also been granted her request to have her maiden name restored — Elin Maria Pernilla Nordegren. You can keep your name Tiger! The two will have joint custody of their kids, ages three and one. Both Tiger and Elin have each completed a 4-hour parenting course.

Go Elin! I bet he got her to sign a confidentiality agreement though. Tiger and Elin issued a joint statement: (more…)

When An Ex Demands Hush Money…

This world never ceases to amaze me. Tennis great Martina Navratilova has agreed to pay ex-girlfriend of eight years Toni Layton almost $3 million dollars following their breakup. The two have been battling it out in court for two years for property that included cash, four homes, more than a dozen vehicles, guns, an animal sanctuary, and a collection of frog art (Frog Art? WTF???) (more…)

Elin Woods' Claws Come Out!

Tiger Wood’s wife Elin is attempting to dig deep in his pockets to make him pay for cheating on her with multiple women. According to reports, she is demanding $750 million in their divorce settlement. Tiger’s entire fortune is only worth $600 million, according to the 2009 estimates of Forbes Magazine.

Is that too much to pay for cheating? If I were Elin, I’d also be salty as hell about him getting caught and the family life thrust into the media by HIS actions. Or maybe she’s starting her bid high so she can settle for an acceptable amount. Either way, she is about to make bank! And he is about to learn the meaning of facing the consequences of your actions. Either way, I predict this will be the highest divorce settlement in history! Let the games begin… *drumrollplease* 🙂 

Reports are now stating that Elin Nordegren, the wife of golf superstar Tiger Woods is asking for $750 million dollars from Woods as part of their divorce settlement.

Additionally, she wants full custody of the kids and will not agree to a confidentiality clause. The confidentiality clause would prevent her from ever writing a book or doing interviews about the break-up. (more…)

Update: Gabrielle Union's Statement

After Siohvaughn’s lawsuit, Gabrielle Union has released a statement through her attorney. This is just too messy… For Ms. Union, this is worrying because such scandals, especially for women, are not looked on favourably by the public…which would affect her career. And we all know her career is not yet as hot as she’d like. BTW Why are there double standards? Do you think it’s wrong to judge Gabby harshly for breaking up a marriage? Pop the top for her statement. (more…)

Drama: Dwayne Wade's Wife Sues Gabrielle Union

Just when you think celebrities cannot shock you, they go and top their ish with some more dumb ish. I had decided not to post any more celeb divorce stories. But this ish right here!!! So just to catch you guys up, there have been rumours for years that Gabrielle Union is NBA player, Dwayne Wade’s jumpoff. I’ve generally given that rumour a mean side eye…until now. Seems Siovaughn has decided to sue Gabrielle for “alienation of affection”. Before you laugh, just keep in mind that there does exist such a law. Furthermore, remember that woman who successfully sued her husband’s jumpoff for breaking up her marriage? Back in March, Cynthia Shackelford, 60, won a $9 million judgment against Anne Lundquist, 49, for wrecking her marriage. A judge decided that Shackelford was entitled to millions for her emotional distress and denial of access to her husband’s affection due to Lundquist’s interference. Sooner or later, Gabrielle Union was going to get caught up in this mess. Ladies, a married man is not someone you want to mess with, even if he is separated from his wife. Pop the top for all the messy details. (more…)
