Omarion isn’t exactly putting out any new material to the public, but his name has been making rounds in the rumor mill because Apryl Jones and Lil Fizz finally went public with their relationship.
He recently kinda broke his silence during a sit down with Vlad TV. “I don’t feel no ways. I don’t feel any way about it… if they’re happy then they should be happy,” Omarion told Vlad. “I think they should change the narrative though. Because if it’s their so-called happiness then I shouldn’t be a part of it.”
While he has our attention, he took the time out to tease the second installment of the beloved Millennium Tour next year.
There’s no telling if B2K would be there, or if we’ll get to see other prolific millennium acts that just couldn’t fit on the last bill.
Many fans worried that B2K would never reunite again because Fizz is smashing his baby’s mother, but they made it through the first tour at the top of the year. So it looks like we might be in luck and get to see them bump, bump, bump one more time.
Social media has been rallying for Rodney Reed who was sentenced to 21 years on death row for a murder that someone else confessed to. Kim Kardashian was one of the many people advocating for Georgia to reopen this man’s case who she believes is innocent.
The reality star wasn’t only campaigning online, but she went to meet Reed face-to-face. Ironically she was with him when he learned his execution was suspended indefinitely.
“Today, I had the honor of meeting #RodneyReed in person and the privilege of sitting with him when he got the news that the highest court in Texas had issued a stay of execution and remanded the case back to the trial court for further consideration,” she wrote on Twitter.
“Words cannot describe the relief and hope that swept over the room in that moment,” she continued. “That hope had been building over the last few weeks around Rodney’s case. We have seen Democrats and Republicans come together. We have seen grassroots activists and lawmakers link arms.”
The Court of Criminal Appeals in Texas decided to pull the plug on the execution because there has been new evidence in the case, including witnesses who came forward in recent months.
Today, I had the honor of meeting #RodneyReed in person and the privilege of sitting with him when he got the news that the highest court in Texas had issued a stay of execution and remanded the case back to the trial court for further consideration.
Words cannot describe the relief and hope that swept over the room in that moment. That hope had been building over the last few weeks around Rodney’s case. We have seen Democrats and Republicans come together. We have seen grassroots activists and lawmakers link arms.
We have heard people all around the globe speak up. And all because of a deep belief that every man or woman accused of a crime – especially one punishable by death – deserves the chance to have all available evidence considered.
So grateful for the commitment and passion of everyone who voiced their support, the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles for their recommendation to issue a 120 day reprieve, and the courts for issuing a stay!

Before Naturi Naughton was known for her lead role in the hit series, Power, she portrayed Lil Kim in the 2009 biopic about the Notorious B.I.G, Notorious.
Jamal Woolard was praised for his performance as Biggie Smalls, but viewers weren’t feeling Naughton. Kim wasn’t even feeling her, which she expressed in the past, and it resurfaced in a recent interview with Hollywood Unlocked.
“I’m gonna touch on this briefly because I think everybody already knows my answer to this, but I hated everything about that movie,” Kim said. “I hated it. Wasn’t involved in it. I actually had to get my lawyers involved which I ended up getting a check from it. That was the only reason I was [like] whatever.”
The Queen Bee added that production continued “without my permission” and she was upset that she didn’t have a say in who would play her. “I was not okay with that! I would have never picked her. Never, ever, ever. She has nothing in common with me. Nothing. No, seriously. I said it already, so I’m not gonna sit here and act like I didn’t say these things.”
Kim assured that she didn’t have a problem with Naughton before the film’s release. But she said, “I don’t like the way she’s been disrespectful about it. I wasn’t even like, basically blaming her, but she did like a whole documentary coming at me.” But she said she let it go because the actress didn’t “want this smoke.”
Naturi Naughton hit back with a clever response in her Instagram Story. “In the words of #BiggieSmalls … “MO MONEY, MO PROBLEMS” she wrote quoting the late rapper.
Fabolous appeared on a recent episode of Drink Champs and briefly name dropped Adrienne Bailon-Houghton because apparently, she had first dibs on his hit single, “You Be Killin Em.”
The singer and actress set the record straight on The Real and confirmed that she did originally have the song when she was dating Lenny S. “To set the story straight, the song, the track was absolutely made for me. Back when I was signed to Def Jam…I was dating Lenny and we actually got studio time with Ryan Leslie who is an incredible producer, and I was telling Ryan, ‘This is the kinda music that I want.’ Crazy enough, my album that never came out was titled Unapologetic, which later was [the title of] Rihanna’s.”
“I really wanted something that felt hard and had this vibe, I was being very outspoken on the album,” Adrienne continued. “And I was like, ‘I want something that feels [she mimics a beat].’” She stated that Ryan specifically made the beat for her and then they began searching for writers, but they may have taken too long because Lenny told them that he was going to give it to Fab. “It ended up being the smash song ‘You Be Killin Em.’”
Trina made headlines earlier this week after she had to check a racist woman who lost her mind in a Florida Walmart.
The woman allegedly called the rapper a “n****r b****” and all h*ll broke loose. Although initial reports suggested that the heated exchanged occurred after the women bumped into each other, Trina said it started because she was trying to console the woman who was allegedly crying.
“I didn’t bump into her in the store … this lady was way across in the kid’s section, just shopping with clothes, and she was just crying,” Trina said during an interview with TMZ. “And I just looked over and was like, ‘Oh, hi. Are you OK?’And she looked up like a demon—demonic, very evil, satanic witch. And she was like, ‘Get away from me, you n***er bitch.’”
She went on to say that she left the situation feeling confused but eventually made it to the register where she saw the woman again.
“As I got to the register, my friend said, ‘You owe my friend an apology.’ And that’s when she just looked around acting belligerent,” Trina explained. “I said, ‘Say it again. You called me a n***er, and I am a n***er—one that will whoop your ass.’”
The 305 rappers concluded the interview with a fair warning to anyone brave enough to hurl racial slurs at her again.
Fabolous returned to the Drink Champs podcast and he shared a bunch of stories behind his hit records, and the beginning of his major-label career.
Apparently there was a small mix up about his 2007 collaboration with Ne-Yo, “Make Me Better.” JAY-Z originally passed on the Timbaland-produced beat, and as the Brooklyn rapper was gearing up to release it as a single, he learned that the beat was also given to Eve. But after a brief conversation, the Pitbull in a skirt let him have the record.
“She really didn’t know and we went to dinner, and she was like, ‘Y’all can have the record and it’s all good,’” Fabolous said. “Imagine my catalog without ‘Make Me Better’ in it.”
Fab also recalled a heated conversation with Kid Cudi because the Man on the Moon rapper didn’t get credited for co-producing “You Be Killin Em” with Ryan Leslie.
“He like, ‘Yo Fab, I did that joint with Ryan Leslie, I ain’t got my credit or my money,’” Fabolous said. “Cudi, bruh… why you on my line with this. ‘I’m supposed to have credit or money or something.’ You gotta relax, Kid Cudi. You blocked and everything right now… I gotta unfollow you and everything. ‘I don’t know why you calling me. That’s not even my call.’ The song is a hit already, what you talking to me for.”
Another interesting story he shared was that he paid Lil Wayne 100,000 and four bottles of champagne for a song that never saw the light of day.
Fabolous wanted Lil Wayne to be featured on his debut project. At the time, the then-17-year-old rapper was signed to Cash Money and on fire.
“They were so hot at the time,” Fab said about Cash Money and the Hot Boys movement. “They came to the studio. I think Steve Stoute gave them 100 grand for Lil Wayne [out of my budget]. They were scorching. This Cash Money in like ’99. For the 99 and the 2000.”
On top of the cash, Weezy requested four bottles of Cristal. “So the four bottles is there. We in the studio—we thinking that four bottles of Cris means they gonna come in, we gonna vibes, drink some champagne,” Fab continued. “Wayne come in, did his verse in 15 minutes, they was out. Took the four bottles with ’em. That’s my first time even seeing something like that. I’m like: ‘This shit different.’”
Parr also posted on her personal Instagram account to celebrate the big moment. “I SAID YES,” she wrote. “@lamarodom #mrsparrodom #lamarandsabrina.”
There aren’t too many details about the proposal, or when it went down but E! News reports that the newly engaged couple are celebrating in Miami. “Lamar, Sabrina, Nene Leakes and her husband are currently celebrating the engagement at Prime 112 in Miami,” the source said. “The group enjoyed dinner and dessert and a champagne toast is going to happen shortly.”
Lamar Odom got engaged just in time for his 40th birthday. After an emotional year and a health scare, the former NBA player made things official with his life and health coach in August. Now he’s ready to take things to the next level.
T.I.’s baby girl may not be feeling her dad’s protective tendencies after all.
According to recent reports and social media, Deyjah Harris, daughter of self-proclaimed “King Of The South” Clifford “T.I.” Harris, has unfollowed her father on social media just days after admitting that he takes his daughter to annual gynecologist check ups to “check her hymen” to ensure she is a virgin.
The teenage Harris also unfollowed her mother Tiny and her sister Zonnique Pullins.
Several publications reported that Deyjah’s real opinion about her father’s outspokenness on the “Ladies Like Us” podcast with liked tweets calling T.I.’s actions “possessive”, “disgusting” and “controlling”.
T.I, is not apologetic about making sure his daughter’s virginity stays in tact and allegedly even asked the doctor to “just check the hymen, please, and give me back my results, expeditiously.”
Lil Kim’s rise to Queen Bee status is definitely something worth watching on the big screen. With a slew of legends receiving the biopic treatment as of late, Kim might get one herself.
The Brooklyn rapper told the ladies of The Real that she’s indeed ready to tell her life story. She revealed that she has been approached by production companies in the past but wasn’t interested. “I’ve gotten so many offers,” she said. “I’m talking, major offers… even BET, Lifetime, Lionsgate. But the thing is, I had to be ready, and I think now I’m ready to tell the story.”
However, when the biopic does see the light of day it will not be handled by the one person she wanted to do it: John Singleton. The late director previously expressed interest on producing the movie before he passed. “Him and I went [to a party]. He was like, ‘I want you to be my celebrity date.’ But I knew what that meant. He wants to talk, right? So he said to me, ‘Kim, why aren’t we doing this movie? You’re a walking best-seller.’ And I was like, ‘Well, I’m waiting for you.’ I said to him, I always said if I did a movie about my life, I’m not doing it with anybody but you. And then he passed away.”
