Kevin Hart and his estranged ex-wife, Torrei Hart, had seemingly finally put aside their differences in order to better co-parent, and really, just to stop exhausting the hell out of each other with their past relationship. Even so, there seems to be some lingering resentment there – enough for Kevin to openly discuss his issue with Torrei throwing his new girlfriend under the bus. On the Twitter, no less.
Kevin wrote: “I’ve actually embraced the man that she is dealing with with nothing but positivity. I’m a mature adult, I’m not a teenager. That man is going to be around my kids and for that reason alone I want to have a positive relationship with him. For her to continue to talk about my woman is honestly sad, especially after 5 years of us being together & a total of 6 1/2 years from me leaving her.”
He added: “It’s almost 7 years total of me not being with my Ex. I guess giving a woman over 20k a month and still being there for her and being a incredible father isn’t enough! I want nothing but the best for her & her boyfriend and that will not change. I ignore negativity, being bitter & angry will get you nowhere.” [Necole Bitchie]
Not sure what will come of Nicci Gilbert’s lawsuit over TV One’s latest reality series, Hollywood Divas, but one thing is for certain: She did not voluntarily leave R&B Divas.
Jawn Murray goes upside her head and the fables it created, reporting: “Since being let go from the series, Gilbert claims she has not received any compensation for her title as executive producer. Her legal documents allege that ThinkFactory Media opted not to pay Gilbert claiming ‘she has breached the confidentiality and non-disparagement provisions of the agreement’ in the multiple interviews she did after being let go as an on-air talent.” [Always A List]

Terry Crews is officially a Hollywood darling – stacking checks on checks on checks with numerous TV and film opportunities on the horizon. However, in a recent interview with Wendy Williams, the former NFL player turned actor reveals he had a case of the Kirk Franklin. That’s code for porn addiction, saints.
Crews explained: "I was addicted to pornography since I was 12 years old. Let me tell you. My father was addicted to alcohol and my mother was addicted to religion. So what happens is you had an addictive household? We weren’t allowed to play sports, we weren’t allowed to watch movies.”
He added: “You don’t know how powerful you [women] are. Men get addicted to looking at pictures of you. That’s how powerful a woman is. It’s one of those things that took me away and it medicated me. But this is the problem. I never told anyone. I didn’t tell my wife for years.” [Rumor Fix]
Toni Braxton’s memoir, Unbreak My Heart, has been released and while speaking with ABC’s Robin Roberts, the singer reveals that she had an abortion, and once upon a time, linked the abortion with her son’s autism.
Growing up in a religious household, Toni Braxton explains that in her book: “I talk about my abortion, which I'm embarrassed to talk about. My son had autism. I thought it was because of the abortion. I blamed myself. A lot of things I'm revealing in the book. And you found it to be cathartic, therapeutic. Very therapeutic. I remember when they told me my son was autistic, I thought, you had an abortion. This is God's way of punishing you.”
She also said that on the upcoming season of Braxton Family Values, the family is undergoing “intense therapy.” You know, ‘cause the Braxton sister who looks like Yolanda Adams has been treating baby sister with the big mouth Braxton as if she stole her man and her dreams and took a piss on them.

Who wants to watch a show called Celebrity Mamas of Atlanta? Yeah, me neither, but it’s coming, or at the very least, trying to make fetch happen. Reportedly Tameka “Tiny” Harris will head a cast that includes Rasheeda’s mama Shirleen along with Mama Joyce. Okay, I’m already picturing tension between Shirleen and Mama Joyce and I’d actually be down for watching that.
In any event, Radar reports: “But it’s not just mothers with wild daughters on TV, the list of male rapper’s mamas is just as long, including Rich Homie Quan, Ca$hout, Rasheeda Frost and K Camp’s mothers. ‘The contract is signed from a major production company and Johnson Thomas Brow productions will be working with Tiny on the deal. Now it’s getting shopped to networks and everyone is really excited.’” [Radar]
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Tameka Raymond blames the fallout of her marriage with Usher on her decision to get liposuction.
Promoting her new show, Atlanta Exes, Tameka candidly explains to Rocsi Diaz: "I did dumb stuff. I mean, I went to Brazil and tried to get lipo and almost died. I think that embarrassed him to like, “Oh no. I’m packing. She’s a nut.” [Rhymes With Snitch]
We almost lost rapper Fabolous. In a post on Instagram, the rapper wrote, “I just survived a car accident on the Van Wyck in Queens, NY. Fab used that caption to describe wa photo of his Cadillac Escalade with its hood dented-up. According to reports, the rapper’s SUV, a tractor trailer, and two other cars were involved in the pileup on the Whitestone Expressway near the Van Wyck Expressway in Willets Point at 6:30 a.m.
Fab added in the post, “I wanna Thank God for not only letting me walk away with a few bumps & bruises but also for letting my driver Ruben & the two truck drivers involved walk away alive also.” [Page Six]
When asked about the poor unfortunate soul at Forbes who wrote that Iggy Azalea rules hip hop, Nicki Minaj and laughed before responding to the hosts of “The Breakfast Club” with: “Okay, I’m reloaded! All Forbes needs to be worried about is my finances and when I’m going to be selling Myx Fusions for $250 million. That’s all they need to worry about. We rely on hip hop connoisseurs and blogs for that kind of information, so we can appreciate that, but no thank you.” And I say "church!"
Keeping with the Posers, Nouveau Vanilla Ice is going strong on his “White Mike” tour – most recently hanging out with Rick Ross and rapping 2Pac’s “Dear Mama.” As much as I want to shade Justin Bieber for this – and listen, it’s so tempting to – I feel like the next time I sing “You Don’t Own Me” from The First Wives Club, someone naturally pasty might give me a similar scolding. Y’all feel free to take it there, though.
