Dont mind me on this eve of weekend. I am glad to be outta here. I am thinking about another rumors assistant. Shoutout to Lady Drama aka Ebony, who was the last person to rock the rumors with me. This isnt absolute, but just to give people something to think about. I read over my rumors and I realized a few of them are late! Anyway, if they are late for me, maybe they are late for you too. I dont know. Enjoy the weekend and maybe I will show up on Saturday or Sunday. I will definitely be adding new rumors later in the day today.
HAPPY FATHERS DAY TO ALL THE DADS! If you arent a good day, work on that. There is still time.

DID SHAWNNA GET MAD AT NICKI?
Nicki reads me. Now, that is something that I like to hear. Anyway, a rep for Nicki Minaj hit me up and let me know the real deal. So, as it goes on, it seems that the promoters wanted Nicki to close the show, which also featured DTPs Shawnna. It would seem that Shawnna felt some type of way because she's the vet in this case. Love Nicki, but she hasnt even dropped a CD yet. So, Nicki aint mad. I dont know of Shawnna is mad at the promoters or Nicki or nobody. I guess well see.
Speaking of Nicki...Kanye's girl loves Nicki...it sounds, more than 'Ye! Looks like Amber is putting it all out there.
50 CENT TO DISS LIL WAYNE?
So DJ Whoo Kid has indicated that 50 Cent is likely going to go after Lil Wayne when it is time to promote the album. Huhm? Well, Whoo Kid never truly said who 50 Cent was going to diss. He only said, Somebodys got to get buried. I took that as 50 will be dissing somebody as he gets ready to drop. At least they are admitting is just a sales ploy. 50 went at Wayne and it didn't pop.
Also, just yesterday 50 Cent was in NY filming a new video for the song with Dr. Dre. I really didnt hear anything about it other than that.
SOMEBODY GOT FIRED?
You heard about Charlamagne dissing Cassie on the radio, right? Well, according to my girl Necole Bitchie, that lil episode got somebody fired. When Cassie and Red Café were at the radio station, there was a Bad Boy Records or maybe Atlantic rep (whoever the parent company is) with them and that person has been suspended without pay. He/she was dissed for letting Charlamagne diss Diddys girl and Diddy right there like that. What the heck was that person thinking? SMH.
GUCCI VS JEEZY?
I heard that Jeezy and Gucci have a couple shows together this weekend. There is the one Summer Jam type of concert and another that I dont know anything about. All I can say is I heard from a radio person that Jeezy is going to go in on Gucci at one of the shows. I dont get it. Why they have to go back over this again. This beef was not good for anybody. I hope they stop before somebody gets hurt.
AUNT BIV DISSING WILL SMITH?
Word is the first Aunt Viv from the Fresh Prince of Bel Air is writing a tell-all book that's rumored to be exposing Will Smith of preventing others from outshining him...
According to BVBuzz, this is what Aunt Biv is saying:
Smith had people around him who made sure no one outshone him. I was happy to see Don Cheadle become the quality actor that he is, and often wondered how he made it past one episode, as Hilarys boyfriend, being such a fierce actor. No one could be on The Tonight Show, that first season, except Will. And I mean no one.
I recall the lovely and incredibly talented Countess Vaughn coming to guest star. Oh my God! The day of table read, she was pee-in-your-pants funny. The writers were howling, we were howling, so I knew she was history banished into the cornfield. Many years later, after she had her own show, I had to tell her when she asked me why. Miss Janet why did I get cut from the episode, she asked? Simply, my darling, you were too good.
DID THE BEYONCE MOB ATTACK AGAIN?
I hope this isnt true! But they are saying that Matthew Knowles and Beyonce are making heavy-handed and concerted attempts to stop LeToya from performing at the BET Awards! I dont know all of what went down with that but it just seems mean. Hope this is false. This is what was said on WPGC down in Maryland.
Dj Flexx asked: "Let's just say that it's true, how does it make you feel that Matthew would go so hard at you to get you off the show?"
LeToya: "It saddens me a little. Because our situation happened close to 10 years ago, and I think as we all know Bey is a very very very talented artist, and I think that we both have our own lanes and fanbase, and I don't see why I would have to be one of the ones picked out of the entire crew of females that will be hitting the stage that night. I don't know... I'm gonna try and word this right... I just don't understand why I'm picked outta that group because there are so many other female artists performin' that night and I think we all deserve to have a chance at that stage. Everybody works hard and we all have something different to offer, from Keyshia to Keri to Bey, everybody is different in their own ways so it saddens me if that's true, and I hope that's not the case but I'll be there regardless".

DRAKE IS WORKING WITH THE NEPTUNES
I got this off the IC and they are saying Drake and The N.E.R.D.Y. dudes are working together.
DID TIMBALAND FIND HIS KANYE?
I am hearing that Timbaland is in Dubai with a new artist named Tokin Black Guy. They both came to a Dubai radio show and played a few songs from Tokin Black Guys project. From what I heard the songs are amazing, with production by Timbaland. From what I understand, Tim and TBG are in Dubai for the next week or so finishing up the album. 50 Cent is supposed to be working with Tim real heavy too. Hes a busy guy!
MORGAN FREEMAN HAS AN AFFAIR WITH STEP-GRANDDAUGHTER?
According to the National Inquirer doesnt have the best reputation for good reporting, but the fact is they have broken significant stories in the past few years. John Edwards, holla! At any rate, an unnamed source has dimed out Morgan Freeman, saying that his divorce from his wife of 25 years was due to a 10 year affair with his 27-year-old step-granddaughter. OH BOY. The crazy thing is, they are also saying that his relationship with this step-grandkid is the reason he and his mistress were also broken up. Morgan is 72 and I want him to act his age! Seriously, I hope the legend has been acting appropriately and this is a bad rumor. Ummmmm I cant write anymore.
JACKI-OS BROTHER EXPLAINS WHAT HAPPENED - did guns come out?
BUSTA RHYMES INTERVIEW
This is a creative video with Busta Rhymes and Big Tigger. Busta even addresses some rumors that have popped up on this page.
EPIC FAIL OF THE DAY
I cannot believe the madness that I am hearing. I got this off of Greasy Guide and just couldnt believe what I read.
PETA has filed a complaint against Barack Obama for swatting a fly. Obama swatted and killed a fly while he was having an interview on CNBC. PETA saw this action as a mean to get some press and is even calling it an execution of a fly
I just cannot fathom that these people have gone so insane as to scream injustice for a fly of all things. They should have been running to give Obama an alcohol wipe. SMH.
J-HUDS FIANCE GETS HIS WWE ON
Why is this unsettling to me? Technically, he is in the FCW, whatever that is. Im clueless. I just realized dudes name is Dawson Alexander.
SIGNS THE WORLD IS COMING TO AN END
A Minnesota woman must pay $1.9 million for downloading 24 songs, a jury has decided.
Jammie Thomas-Rasset lost, but I dont consider her loss an epic fail. I actually consider the fail to be on the part of the RIAA, who decided it was worth their time and effort to wage war on a single mother. She is appealing, but the RIAA was happy with the decision. "We appreciate the jury's service and that they take this as seriously as we do," said a rep for the recording industry watchdog. Thomas-Rasset downloaded music from No Doubt, Linkin Park, Gloria Estefan and Sheryl Crow. If there is any fail, it is the fact that Jammie went to trail before and was fined $220,000. But the judge ordered a retry because of an error in messaging to the jury.
The Wiz opening night was last night and they look like they had a lot of fun out there.
