Cissy Houston Speaks Out Against Whitney Houston Biopic: ‘Please Let Her Rest’

cissy3 zpsf0bb1bee Cissy Houston Speaks Out Against Whitney Houston Biopic: Please Let Her Rest

At least Angela Bassett will have an idea of the parties to blame if she wakes up tomorrow with a roots box at her front door.

 In a statement released to ET today, the late Whitney Houston‘s mother Cissy Houston says that the family is “exhausted” by the “continuing misinformation and comments offered by people who did not know her.” She also pleaded with fans to “please let her rest.”

“Lifetime has chosen to go ahead with the movie about Whitney in spite of my family’s objections. No one connected with this movie knew Whitney or anything about her relationship with Bobby,” ET reports the statement as saying.

“In the two years since Whitney’s death, many people have stepped forward to speak about their close relationship with her. I find it difficult to believe people who knew and supposedly loved her would participate in a movie about her done by folks who didn’t know her.”

“We are exhausted by the continuing misinformation and comments offered by people who did not know her. Please please let her rest.”

Ray J Hit With 10 Charges Stemming From Hotel Arrest, Including Sexual Battery

ray j dreadful zpsa34f838b Ray J Hit With 10 Charges Stemming From Hotel Arrest, Including Sexual Battery

The prodigal son of Frank Mitchell is going through it tonight.

Earlier today, expert coattail rider Ray J was charged with a whopping 10 crimes by the LA District Attorney, including 4 counts of resisting arrest, 3 counts of assault and battery and 2 counts of vandalism from an incident that happened in May. Those charges as well as the battery charge are all misdemeanors. The D.A. also charged the fledgling singer with sexual battery even though cops say no such crime was committed.

Ray J was at a bar at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel when he got rowdy, brushed up against a woman’s ass and was ordered to leave. Police told TMZ at the time it was NOT a sexual battery because the contact was “incidental” — not intentional. Apparently the D.A. begs to differ. Ray J left the bar and then went nuts in an alcohol-fueled rampage. He was arrested, kicked out the window of a cop car and spit on an officer. Ray J told TMZ he kicked out the window because he was claustrophobic. | TMZ

Question of The Day: How Should Kordell Stewart Raise Funds To Pay Off His Tax Debt?

kordell stewart zps6ad068b6 Question of The Day: How Should Kordell Stewart Raise Funds To Pay Off His Tax Debt?

I usually keep a Trina lyric referencing the financial security that selling pussy provides tucked away in my knock-off designer handbag to motivate other bad bitches but I’m fresh out today. That sucks because Kordell Stewart could use a few words of encouragement right now.

According to reports, the former NFL star who now spends the quiet years of his retirement canvasing the men’s bathroom at Bulldog’s in Atlanta for new players to lay on top of inside the huddle has to pay the state of Georgia $13,240.88 after interest, penalties and other fees for failing to pay taxes in 2012.

As you probably already know, the government is the pettiest, messiest bitch you’ll ever meet in these streets.

It has placed a levy on all of his assets and property, which it will seize and sell if he doesn’t fork over the moola in a timely manner to collect the money they’re owed.

It would rip my heart to shreds to see my sorority sister’s assortment of Bedroom Kandi dildos and Herve Leger bandage dress collection up on the auction block.

Mathew Knowles’ Alleged Baby Mama Releases Statement

baby mama zps6c1bb53f Mathew Knowles Alleged Baby Mama Releases Statement

Mathew Knowles is the new Daquan.

Instead of taking the words of Webbie to heart when he rapped “I’m up in H-Town, I’m trying to use a rubber tonight,” the patriarch of the Knowles Klan refuses to strap up when creating rockets and waterfalls.

The 63-year-old has been hit with a second paternity suit, this time around by a lingerie-model-turned-real-estate-agent.

Court documents reportedly filed by Taqoya Branscomb at a Houston area court allege that Daddy Matty fathered her daughter who was born four years ago. The 30-year-old mother is allegedly petitioning for a DNA test to determine paternity, as well as child support and attorney fees for her legal team.

Branscomb released the following statement to several media outlets:

“First I’d like to thank my family, my friends, and the public for their love and support. I have taken the necessary legal action against Mathew Knowles. With that being said it’s in my best interest for this to remain a private matter for now. Above all I am a mother and my daughter’s well being is my only priority. It was never my intention for this to become a public matter. The pictures you see are in no way a representation of who I am. They were taken 10 years ago. And I am now a hard working successful single mother. Honestly I just want what is best for my daughter.”

Memoirs of A Redbone: Chris Brown Rejects Plea Deal In DC Assault Case

chris brown court zps2991927d Memoirs of A Redbone: Chris Brown Rejects Plea Deal In DC Assault Case

The President of Melanin Deficient Negroes has once again blocked his blessings of being the Tickle Me Elmo of R&B music.

Chris Brown was close to resolving his assault case in a deal that would have prevented him from being James DeBarge’s cell block homie again, but talks fell apart when attorneys couldn’t agree on what Breezy would acknowledge happened during a scuffle that led to his arrest.

During a 15-minute hearing in D.C. Superior Court today, Chris rejected the agreement in which he would have pleaded guilty to assault for allegedly punching a photograph-seeking fan outside the W Hotel in downtown Washington.

At the time, he was on probation in California for a 2009 attack on his then-girlfriend Rihanna. Prosecutor Kevin Chambers said in court that Breezy rejected a deal to plead guilty to misdemeanor assault and receive a sentence of time served.

Rock The Boat: Aaliyah Relationship With R. Kelly To Be ‘Explored’ In Upcoming Biopic

aaliyah rkelly zpsb33eb948 Rock The Boat: Aaliyah Relationship With R. Kelly To Be Explored In Upcoming Biopic

The upcoming Lifetime biopic of the late R&B singer Aaliyah has already found itself with its fair share of controversy. Now, it has been revealed that her relationship with that pending friend request you’ve being ignoring for months will be showcased in the made for television flick.

“Aaliyah’s personal and professional relationship with R. Kelly will be explored with care in the film as we set out to depict her life with the utmost respect,” executive producer Debra Martin Chase told the New York Post. ”Above all else, it’s our hope to inspire an entirely new generation with her music and larger-than-life talent.”

The two singers were allegedly – and illegally – married in 1994, when Aaliyah was just 15 and Kelly was 27. Aaliyah, who died in a 2001 plane crash at age 22, denied the secret ceremony throughout her life – though a marriage certificate later appeared, with her age falsely listed as 18. (Her parents later reportedly annulled the marriage.) | Rolling Stone
