Chris Brown: The Suicide Attempt Was a Ploy
Not even 24 hours after Kehlani attempted suicide, someone had something negative to say. That someone would be none other than Chris Brown. He claims that the singer’s attempted suicide was just a way to get some sympathetic comments and publicity from fans.
“There is no attempting suicide,” he admonished. “Stop flexing for the (Insta)gram.”
It seems like brown was responding to the rumors on social media that Kehlani cheated on his friend, Kyrie Irving from the Cleveland Cavaliers with her ex-boyfriend, rapper PartyNextDoor.
Kehlani posted on Instagram (which she later deleted) that she and Irving had already broken up before she got back together with PartyNextDoor.
While Brown was basically a heartless d**k, others like Nick Cannon, Keyshia Cole, and Questlove have reached out to Kehlani. We only hope that Kehlani gets the help she needs and Brown, well… No further comment on him.
Lil Jon: IRS Woes
Taxes are a part of life as an American citizen and there is no way of getting out of having to pay them. Apparently rapper, Lil Jon never got the memo because he currently owes $160k in back taxes to the state of Georgia. According to Fulton County records, the Georgia Department of Revenue says that he hasn’t paid taxes for 2007. Lil Jon’s original tax debt that he owed the state was $68,406, however with the collection fees, interest, and other costs, he now owes $159,798.54.
Ah, but not only is the IRS pounding down his door, Lil Jon has multiple liens by a home construction company which claims that he screwed them out of over $22k for work they did on his mansion in Georgia.
Whoopi Goldberg: A Canna-Businesswomen?
Ladies, when that time of the month comes around, sometimes it feels like no amount of Midol or a heating pad can do the trick, am I right?
Whoopi Goldberg is right there with you and has had it with dealing with cramps. She is teaming up with Maya Elisabeth, one of the leading women in the cannabis world, to launch a medical-marijuana company with products that are designed to give women relief from the cramps associated with periods.
The company will have cannabis edibles, tinctures, topical rubs, and a THC-infused bath soak that is supposed to help your body relax.
Goldberg did an interview with Vanity Fair where she said she wanted to give women a discreet way to enjoy the relaxing properties without becoming a couch potato.
“For me, I feel like if you don’t want to get high high, this is a product specifically just to get rid of discomfort,” she says. “Smoking a joint is fine, but most people can’t smoke a joint and go to work.”
“This, you can put it in your purse,” Goldberg continues. “You can put the rub on your lower stomach and lower back at work, and then when you get home you can get in the tub for a soak or make tea, and it allows you to continue to work throughout the day.”
