Jay Z Reportedly Announces Beyonce Is Pregnant With Couple’s Second Child: It looks like the Carters are adding another branch to the family tree. Last night, during Jay Z and Beyoncé’s OTR Tour stop in Paris, Hov made the huge announcement of his wife’s pregnancy to the stunned crowd.
According to witnesses, during his performance of the track, “Beach Is Better,” Hov changed up the lyrics to unveil the big news, rapping, “’Cause she pregnant with another one.” There is also a picture that has been circulating from the concert that appears to show the couple glowingly cupping what appears to be the R&B star’s newly formed baby bump. BeyHive members have been commenting on how Mrs. Carter’s show outfits have slightly changed as of recently. This appears to be the reason for the alterations.
Last week, the power couple looked happier than ever while vacationing in Italy, and have been all smiles in recent outings despite continuous rumors of an impending split. Hov and Bey’s first child, Blue Ivy, was born January 7, 2012.
Do you think this announcement will dead all hear say about the couple parting ways?

Laila Ali wants to get in the ring with Serena Williams: Former boxing champion Laila Ali was at the US Open on Labor Day and was asked what tennis player would she like to get in the ring with and train to box. The answer is who many would have anticipated. If Ali had to train one tennis player to box, who would she choose? “If I had to train a tennis player to be a boxer I would pick Serena Williams because she got the (singing) ‘eye of the tiger,’” to which many laughed. Ali continued in a more serious tone. “She’s tall, she’s strong, and she’s got good food work, and I could really turn that into a powerhouse in boxing.”
Ali was on hand in a quest to create greater awareness in an effort to knock out childhood obesity as National Obesity Awareness Month began this month. Ali, who played tennis as a youth herself, talked about her involvement with the USTA. “I got involved with the USTA and helping this initiative to keep kids active through sports, fitness, and tennis because this is something I have been doing for years. I’ve been talking about why it’s an epidemic that we have childhood obesity and all these diseases from kids being inactive. And I think it’s great that the USTA wants to get kids involved in sports at a young age, make sure they have a positive experience.”
Ali played with dozens of young children on the tennis courts at the Billie Jean King Tennis Center before taking some time to speak about the similarities of boxing and tennis. “Boxing and tennis are similar in the footwork, it’s one-on-one sports, you have to be very competitive, you have to train hard, and once you get to the top, you have to stay at the top.”
While the daughter of the legendary Muhammad Ali is no longer taking on foes in the boxing ring, she has found a worthy adversary in childhood obesity. With help from the USTA, Ali now hopes to knock out childhood obesity the same way she knocked out her opponents in the ring.
Back to the ole saying of ‘Two Can Play That Game’ - Shantel Jackson files shocking lawsuit against ex Floyd Mayweather Jr.: Shantel Jackson is fighting back after allegedly being harassed, abused and battered by her ex-fiancé, Floyd Mayweather Jr.
On Thursday, Aug. 4, the model held a press conference alongside her lawyer Gloria Allred where she accused Mayweather of assaulting her on several occasions in addition to pulling a gun on her.
She stated… “There was a point in my relationship with Floyd that I thought we would be together forever. I loved him so much and I made sure that I took care of him the best I knew how.
I tried my best to make our relationship work by compromising and going to relationship counseling, but I finally realized that there was no hope and our relationship could not continue.
I loved Floyd deeply but he continued to disappoint and intentionally hurt me. I have been embarrassed and humiliated more than I can ever imagine by Floyd whom I once called my best friend and fiancé.
I have tried everything that I could and I have given Floyd every opportunity to do the right thing. Unfortunately, he has refused every opportunity to make things right. It is with a heavy heart that I finally realized that the only way to set the record straight to achieve justice for what he has done to me is through the filing of this lawsuit.”
Among the claims of her lawsuit, it states that…
“He twisted [her] arm, choked her and forcibly took her phone away from her to look through it.” In April 2013, he “bent her arm, restrained her, and pointed a gun at her foot, asking ‘Which toe do you want me to shoot?’” And who can forget when he invaded her privacy by posting photos of her sonogram on social media, accusing her of killing their twin babies?! Jackson is suing Mayweather for assault, battery, defamation, invasion of privacy, intentional infliction of emotional distress and harassment. There has been no word from Floyd’s camp and considering the circumstances, we hope that he is smart enough to bite his tongue this go around.

Raven firece in a photo-shoot by Bruce Talbot. However, in a recent snap shot interview on BET “Just Keke” show Raven talked about embracing her sexuality and being confident in the skin you’re in saying: “You have to be confident in who you are no matter what your team, background noise or front-ground noise makes. You have to stay strong as long as you’re not, ya know, being a drug addict or nothing crazy then you gotta listen. But when you’re just trying to color your hair, stay strong. It’s hard because people want to continue the brand, continue the look that they created to, I’m being honest, they want continue that look that made them money for so long but sometimes it doesn’t always coincide with who you are as a person”…
The Actress also touch on when she tweeted on the new legislation that was passed to recognize same-sex marriage Keke: Now, you sent out a tweet last August saying, “I can finally get married! Yay government! So proud of you.” Now it made news because of course everybody had the question of, Is this Raven coming out? Is this her moment? Do you want to talk about that? Raven: I’ll just say I love my LGBT community and I’m part of them for always.
This is the “original cold water challenge” or ALS as we so choose to call it for 2014. However, it was a torture method used to break big black bucks! The pic above is 1858 in a prison facility. I applaud the celebrities who got the call to divert the attention from the Mike Brown case, to start this campaign…. Just a little black history known fact that many of us didn’t learn in high school..

Melissa, who has been keeping vigil at her ailing mom’s side, released a new statement Friday to The Insider With Yahoo: “Her condition remains serious but she is receiving the best treatment and care possible.” The comedy icon stopped breathing during what was supposed to be a minor throat procedure at a New York clinic. She was rushed to Mt. Sinai hospital in Manhattan in critical condition. Doctors placed her in a coma to stabilize her and plan to reevaluate her condition over the weekend, according to sources close to the family.
"My mother would be so touched by the tributes and prayers that we have received from around the world," Melissa added. "We ask that you continue to keep her in your thoughts as we pray for her recovery." Melissa, who rushed from Los Angeles with son Cooper when she received news of her mother’s emergency Thursday morning, previously told Yahoo that Joan "was resting comfortably and is with our family."
As Melissa noted, thoughts and prayers are pouring in, both via deliveries to the hospital and on social media. As Rosie O’Donnell put it: “Hey, Joan, this show ain’t over — get well now!”
Miami Heat baller Dwayne Wade is getting hitched to actress Gabrielle Union this weekend. Wade and Union obtained a marriage license from Miami-Dade County, Gumbumper has learned exclusively, and the only thing they need to make their union official is the signature of the person who’s marrying them.
Union signed up for the license online Tuesday and paid the $93.50-fee. (The fee is actually higher because they opted not to take the $20-online premarital preparation course) Union got the license right on time: State law mandates that lovers wait for three days before a marriage license becomes effective.
