Eva Longoria And Diddy Fall On Opposite Sides Of Newark, NJ Mayoral Race

(AllHipHop News) Sean “P. Diddy” Combs is not on the best terms with some of the most powerful women in entertainment. Less than a month after ex-girlfriend Jennifer Lopez and NuvoTV outbid Combs and REVOLT TV for FUSE, Eva Longoria has some disparaging remarks for the Hip Hop mogul over his political endorsements of Ras Baraka.

This past Monday (May 5th), Longoria appeared in Mediterranean Manor catering hall  in Newark, New Jersey to voice her support for New Jersey mayoral candidate, former Assistant Attorney General Shavar Jeffries. The prior day, Diddy publicly supported Jeffries’ opponent in the NJ mayoral race, Ras Baraka on his personal Instagram account:

Longoria informed the 800 people at the catering hall that Diddy was not making the right decision:

The day after Longoria’s comments were made public, Diddy continued his public support of Ras Baraka.

The election for the New Jersey mayoral race will occur on May 13th.

    $havar ?effries is a tool for Essex County machine boss Joey DiVincenzo and So. Jersey financier George Norcross. $havries backed by $2 million in wall street hedge fund dollars trying to buy Newark.

    “We will not let a political machine shove someone we don’t know and don’t trust down our throats,” South Ward Councilman Ras Baraka said last week of his opponent, Shavar Jeffries. “We will not let them take over our city. … We will not be bought.”

  • Yes, the streets of Newark, NJ look to a Desperate Housewife for the solutions to their problems.

      lmao 2x

    • TruthSerum

      I agree but it ain’t like looking to Diddy for the answers is much of an improvement.

      • streets look 2 Ras Baraka, which is why ppl like Lauryn Hill & Redman attend his rallies & endorse. Diddy jus gettn behind th streets’/unions’ choice

  • MrNoName2K

    Its his choice..

  • RichFromBX

    Why should someone who doesn’t live nor has ever lived in Newark feel the need to so strongly push for who it’s mayor should be?

    • Phibes

      They are friends from college. They both went to Howard University.

      • RichFromBX

        goes back to my point, he’s just throwing out an endorsement when he shouldn’t be especially when it’s not based in the best interest of Newark.

      • Phibes

        No doubt.

    • Sean Taylor

      I scratch your back you scratch mine.

      When Diddy wants to start buying property or contracts being negotiated he wants his back scratched.

  • diggdoug

    and what part of this is hip hop ?

    • Mark Lamount Burns

      None at all, homie! Just another feeble attempt for Diddy to stay in the news.

      • Arrie Mental Woodard

        did diddy write this article or did someone else? like it or not he is a celebrity but he is not writing these stories so how is it a feeble attempt on his part. Plus ol girl threw shade on him not the other way around. he is still a figure in entertainment and he is using his influence to get people to vote and interested in local politics.

    • imagineTHATbang

      Dumbarse, Hip – Hop has always had a political edge to it. Get the f^ck out of here with that bullsh!t

    • Sean Taylor

      Well since hiphop is a lifestyle, yes this IS hiphop.

  • IceBergSlim

    Who is she to say he is making a bad decision..Lady Beat it with that BS, I hope Diddy doesn’t entertain her with a response.

  • Django 2Chainz

  • Django 2Chainz

    Sidenote: Isn’t Baraka the dude from Mortal Kombat??

  • this election is about the seizure of power; will it continue to be in the hands of wall streets’ puppets (Shavar Jeffries) or will it be someone for the people/workers/kids, etc. Ras Baraka is the principal of a high school plus South ward councilman; speaks truth to the kids, have been puttn in YEARS of work/activism for the streets, including a cease fire that the streets respected and kept. He organizes the people. Eva Longoria tawmbout that “I like Shavar’s narrative.” Well, heffa, read a book! Plenty of ppl w/ humble beginnings that are only out 4 themselves. You heard Ras buildin w/ the youth on Lauryn Hill’s Miseducation album. Black people, our votes matter, otherwise the powers that be wouldn’t go out their way to block it w/ shady politics, voter intimidation, murderin ppl who try to register us to vote, lockn us up so we cud lose our right to vote, etc. A candidate you can’t buy out that wont sell out is once in a lifetime (Ras Baraka). Pay attention b/c this is a blueprint 4 hoods across America, if we truly want ppl who represent us.
