- Let us pray: What Would Jesus Do is now property of Tyler Perry. Now, raise your hand if you mentally stretched out his last name like Hurricane Chris expressing his fondness Halle Berry.

The United State Patent and Trademark Office sided with the media mogul in the trademark battle for the popular phrase last week, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Norman “Dutch Giant” Oosterbroek, who was killed by cops in Florida during an alleged break-in, was allegedly fired from his job protecting Jay-Z and Beyonce after they discovered he had hired a prostitute while on duty in Las Vegas.

His life spiraled out of control in the past months after he lost the position. The power couple had also allegedly discovered photographic and video evidence showing the hulking guard using the family’s passports in a lewd act.

Sometimes you feel like a nut but shit. I hope Queen Creole fired up her Macbook to record a reaction video (she documents her every fart, burp and yawn, why not?) because this all is just — sigh. There’s no telling what else dude was up to when nobody was around to monitor his moves. Probably scooped up his skeet with their social security cards too.

Here’s where things get interesting. The story was first uncovered by a major print publication last year which approached the couple for comment. Word is the duo then secured a deal to ensure the story never saw the light of day.
