Mariah Carey Parts Ways With Manager Jermaine Dupri

mariah zps1927c431 Mariah Carey Parts Ways With Manager Jermaine Dupri

It’s The Emancipation of Mimi of over again, bitches.

Mariah Carey has split with her manager,  longtime friend and frequent collaborator  Jermaine Dupri.

“I’m a very hands-on person when it comes to my work,” Dupri told Billboard in a statement. “I put my all into every project. But when I’m not allowed to do what I do, then I know it’s time for me to move on. Mariah and I enjoy working together and will continue to make great music together in the future.”

The management shift comes less than three months after ‘Me. I Am Mariah . . . The Elusive Chanteuse’ (I laugh every time I read that extra-ass title, too) failed to dominate the charts. Despite being well-received by critics, the album has only moved 103,000 units since its release in May.

Mimi hired JD as her manager in 2013 after parting ways with Randy Jackson. She is now working closely with Kevin Liles, who was president of Def Jam during her stint at the label and currently manages Trey Songz and Ty Dolla $ign.

Jay-Z’s Alleged Mistress Relationship Releases “Sorry Mrs. Carter” Music Video

Will you just take a look at what the flop dragged in. The woman who has been accused by gossip rags as being Jay-Z’s mistress released a new video for her single “Sorry Mrs. Carter” this week.

On the track, struggle rapper Liv maintains that although she and Hova “never screwed” that the pair “connected on some hip-hop shit.” In fact, he still thinks about the bond they once shared to this very day. How special.

The song features a gang of lazy and uninspired references to lyrics from Jay-Z’s rhyme catalog that makes the wordplay Chief Keef displayed on “Fuck Rehab” sound like it belongs on, well, a Jay-Z song. I’ll never under-appreciate your gifts ever again, Keith.

“Time to tell these young girls some real shit. Time to tell them how you became a wife. Come on now. Serfborts? Monica Lewinsky? Why don’t you tell these girls how to be wise? Why don’t you tell these girls how to act around your husband?,” Karlie Redd’s protege quips before informing listeners that “the invasion has begun.”

Sherri Shepherd’s Surrogate Reportedly Gives Birth Amidst Divorce Battle

sherri1 zpsd1aa603b Sherri Shepherds Surrogate Reportedly Gives Birth Amidst Divorce Battle

The unnamed surrogate carrying a child for Sherri Shepherd and her estranged husband Lamar Sally has given birth, according to TMZ. The baby boy was reportedly born in Pennsylvania on Tuesday (August 5).

The departing ‘The View’ co-host was not present for the birth but sources tell the site that Lamar was present, adding “He is excited to be a new dad and for the future ahead.” The site also reports that “Lamar intends to raise the child himself” and will ask a court “to order Sherri to pay support.” Thus explaining why she reportedly does not want custody or to be named as a parent.

Sherri reportedly has no genetic connection to the baby. The newborn was allegedly conceived through IVF with an egg donor and Lamar’s sperm.

Lamar filed for divorce from Sherri back in May. The couple exchanged vows in August 2011 after becoming engaged in December 2010. She was previously married to Jeff Tarpley from 2001 to 2010, and gave birth to a son in April 2005. She recently maintained custody of the 9-year-old boy in court, when Jeff attempted to obtain full custody of the child.

Heavy, heavy.

Vivica A. Fox‘s BlackPeopleMeet.com headline now proudly reads “these breasts may be 5, but this mouth is 50!” The actress is one step closer to the senior citizen discount at Golden Corral and one step away from being the old thot in club.

Surrounding herself with such Hollywood elite as Tara Reid and Tamala Jones, the real Aunt Viv brought in being half a century old at Mr. Chow in Los Angeles on Saturday night (August 2). Also spotted on the scene: Brandy, Tisha Campbell Martin and husband Duane, Tichina Arnold, Star Jones, Elise Neal, Tatyana Ali, Shaun Robinson and Michael Jai White.

Here’s to hope that she lends her twerking services to the BET Hip Hop Awards this year as a reminder that this cougar is still on the prowl like her line sister Karlie Redd.

The above Wonder Twins of Struggle saved all their money this summer by using the same transfer on the Metrolink every day to purchase signature pieces from the Nicki Minaj for Kmart collection so that they could make sure they are boo’d up before the start of the school year.
