Ok peoples...the rumor mill has been out of control these past few days. And my inbox is flooded with e-mails about all this mess. So let's address this foolishness and squash it so we can get to some gossip with credibility:
Jay-Z v. Secret Baby Momma
Rumor: Jay-Z paid off a woman who is secretly the mother of his child to keep his name off the birth certificate. He supposedly paid her $1,000,000 to kep quiet..but now the story has leaked. He has a baby with a Trinidadian woman possibly named Shenelle who looks like Bey.
Supposed Trinidadian model chick
Is this rumor seriously popping up again like it's brand new? I swear this story went around during my first years in undergrad...similar pics and all. I don't believe a lick of it simply because it's been around for years and bloggers who have no crediblity alter the story to make it seem recent (like now the secret baby mama has a myspace page). Let's keep it real peoples. Years ago when this story first dropped Jay didn't even have a million dollars. And as desperate as he is for a baby right now (y'all have seen these recent interviews)...there is no reason at this point to keep this child a secret. And just like certain "bloggers" claim they received this story from a member of Jay's family--I received the exact opposite from a member of Sean Carter's family. Now what. Let it go.
Jay-Z v. Beyonce
Rumor: Jay and B have broken up. He did not accompany her to the Oscars and they have not been spotted together by the paparazzi since All Star game. And even then..they seemed distant. Sources are saying it's the end.
I'm mad I'm about to spend longer than 30 seconds on this mess. This is the 34,765 time in the past 4 years I have heard this. Why are people acting like Jay doesn't have a $310 million empire to run? No he didn't go to the Oscars and no I don't blame him. He has his own sh*t to do and that mess was too damn long. Period. And Bey was not nominated for anything. A breakup simply because they haven't been seen together? Stop the foolishness people.
Jay-Z v. "That Chick"
PLEASE....I repeat...PLEASE stop sending me this video. It's just comical at this point. This video has been circulating for years and it has been verified several times over that it was part of a movie Jay-Z was in...a la State Property. The funniest thing is that now the e-mails are reading that he did this to an African woman while on his trip to the motherland late last year. Pure comedy.
Usher v. Secret Baby Momma
I need for these chicks who are calling in to the radio stations claiming to have the love child of a celeb to get their weight up with these whack ass stories. A girl named "Kajuana" or "Cookie" or.....oh who cares...called in to Hot 92.3 radio station this morning saying she had Ursh's baby 2 weeks ago. And oh yes...there's a pic of the baby and one of the chick. Is she serious?
Now for some real gossip...Naomi has officially gone Druscilla and lost her damn mind. She's supposedly getting a reality show on MTV where she is basically scouting people to be her assistant. Boo. I knew she was parading around with her new beau Terrance for a reason. I can only hope a chick gets chosen as a finalist who will show her colors and whoop Naomi's ass in a fight that we all know will happen. I'll be watching....
And I conveniently received this e-mail a couple days ago:
