Singer Keyshia Cole is seeing red and accusing her sister Neffe Pugh of bashing her in her second book Price I Paid. Get the details inside….
Woman To Woman singer Keyshia Cole seems to be at odds with certain family members after a series of tweets revealed a rift among the siblings.
Keyshia first tweeted a series of rants (seemingly aimed at sister Neffie) saying,
"How many of y’all have leaches in your own family? I need to know I’m not alone!
Bitch talk about me in ya book and wearing the shoes I gave u on the cover? Fucking Bogus! ��
Gotta keep munch man from all that drama tho. It’s not coo like that"
Those tweets referred to Neffe’s last book, Price I Paid, where she recounts the impact appearing on reality tv (“The Way It Is” & “Frankie & Neffe”) had on her life and how going on to do "Frankie & Neffe" without Keyshia’s consent produced a big strain among the sisters. But clearly….Keyshia didn’t want Neffe to share that infomation with the public.
Neffe spoke to The Breakfast Club about the rift saying,
“Keyshia did not want us to do a reality show period because she wanted it to be done in the right way, and I respect her whole-heartedly for that. Everybody out there was looking at our family like we had no control, no morals, no principles, no values, like we were uneducated. She didn’t want that.”
Keyshia’s Neffe rant was later followed by a tweet that was aimed at her mom Frankie…
Unfortunately, outside of Keyshia’s very controlled portrayal of her life on "Keyshia & Daniel: Family First," it seems there are still family members keeping up drama in her life. But ironically, it’s the "drama" that draws Keyshia’s fans to both her and her music.
Best of luck to Frankie and all of her kids. We’ll be watching…
Oprah Winfrey’s Dad Vernon ACCUSED Of CHEATING And THREATENING His ESTRANGED Wife + Magic Johnson Likes His Liquorice SOFT — Or YOU’RE FIRED!
In the midst of a nasty divorce, Vernon Winfrey, the father of mogul Oprah Winfrey, is accused of being an adulterer and threatening to shoot his estranged wife. Get all the drama inside and find out how being late with Magic Johnson‘s snacks could get you fired….
Oprah Winfrey should send Iyanla Vanzant down to East Nashville, Tennessee to fix up the life of her 79-year-old father, who’s embroiled in a nasty divorce.
Shortly after Vernon filed papers and decided to leave his wife of 12-years, Barbara, in June, she filed a counterclaim with all sorts of accusations ranging from adultery to his threatening to shoot her with a gun.
She also claims that Vernon and daughter Oprah are trying to forced her out of the .5M mansion she and Vernon shared and that Oprah is cutting her out of the storefront barbershop she bought for her father.
Barbara said, "He believes what he’s told. His daughter doesn’t care about the community. His daughter doesn’t care about the barbershop. But I do,’
But an Oprah spokesperson told WSMV ‘Oprah purchased the property that was in foreclosure. Vernon Winfrey has been a fixture in the community for decades and will continue to manage the business on a day-to-day basis.’
For his part, Vernon says Barbara is ‘guilty of inappropriate marital conduct’ and cited irreconcilable differences as his reason for splitting.
And in other entertainment news….
Being late on the job could get you fired when it comes to Magic Johnson. 45-year-old Lanita Thomas, a former flight attendant on his private jet, said the mogul fired her for being 15 minutes late to work….but she claims she was only late because she was picking up his specialty turkey meats.
Apparently, Magic is really particular about his snacks and Lanita claims she had to "regularly squeeze his red vines to make sure they were soft" (red vines are liquorice).
Now Lanita is suing Magic saying he owes her for overtime. And she believes he fired her to hire a younger flight attendant to service him in the air. No word on how much she wants…..
Former “BBW” Star Jennifer Williams’ ESTRANGED Husband Eric Williams ACCUSED Of FATHERING Secret LOVE CHILD?!
Former "BBW" star Jennifer Williams was hit with a bombshell recently when a woman accused her husband Eric Williams of fathering her baby! Deets about the baby knot inside….
As she works through the legal issues of her pending divorce, Jennifer Williams was jolted recently after a woman in Pennsylvania claimed to have gotten knocked up by her estranged husband Eric Williams.
Tavia Serena Cannon filed a Complaint for Support in PA last week claiming Eric is her baby’s daddy and she wants some child support cash. Tavia, who claims she gave birth in October 2011, says the child was conceived in early 2011 BEFORE Jen filed for divorce in June.
Sources close to Jen say she didn’t know about Tavia and this comes as a surprise. But did it? And with her divorce is still pending in a NJ court, I’m sure she’ll ask Eric to hit up a paternity test since the cheating may just help her case.

”I’m Fine With It”
50 Cent again disclosed information about he and Lloyd Banks somewhat fractured friendship in an interview with Power 106′s Big Boy. According to 50, he and his longtime associate haven’t as much as spoken in nearly a year.
âHe goes through these things where he goes and thereâs no communication and then he goes off and he does what he want,â said 50 Cent. âAnd because I want them to be individuals and operate on they own away from me, Iâm fine with it. Iâll tell his lawyers cause his lawyers tell me and I tell them to make sure that he does things. His way of dealing with things is not dealing with it.â
âThis is the second time that this has happened. Banks tucked away for almost a year after his father passed,â 50 Cent explained.
Allen Iverson’s estranged wife Tawanna is seeking a restraining order as she says the former baller’s behavior is "threatening." Deets inside…
We told you earlier that Allen and Tawanna Iverson had reconciled…..well, at least long enough to get it in. But now they’re back on the "outs" and Tawanna wants a restraining order.
In new court docs filed, TMZ reports Tawanna reported Allen for harassing her and her family as he "has engaged in increasingly contemptuous, threatening, and disturbing behavior."
So now, Tawanna wants a restraining order and she’s accusing Allen of hiding money from her. Sigh….we will keep you posted. But am I the only one who wants to see these two on next season of VH1′s "Couples Therapy"?

The divorce settlement between former NBA guard, Allen Iverson and his soon-to-be ex-wife Tawanna just officially got ugly. Tawanna Iverson recently filed court documents requesting the former NBA MVP up the information of any female he has slept with since they got hitched, according to a report by TMZ.
Not only are Tawanna and her legal team requesting that the jobless baller come clean about his supposed extramarital affairs, they are also requesting that he, “give the name and telephone number of every person other than your spouse whom you have had sexual relationships and/or intimate physical contact from the date of the marriage to the date of the trial.” Ouch.
Its also was reported that Tawanna is requesting to see all of Allen’s financial records as well as any purchases he has made exceeding 00. She previously stated that the Iverson had recently been spending huge amounts of money on himself and financially neglecting her and their children. Iverson has been rumored to have had old flings with rappers, Da Brat, Foxy Brown and industry jump off Karrine Steffans.
The former basketball wife filed for divorce last year and initially stated that the split had nothing to do with The Answer’s infidelity. Things done changed.

Former NBA star’s divorce case takes a turn for the worse.
It’s just been announced that Tanya Williams, the estranged wife of former New Jersey Nets baller Jayson Williams has joined the cast of "Basketball Wives: Los Angeles" and we have the deets inside….
According to the NY Post, Tanya Williams, Jayson Williams’ estranged wife, has taped three episodes of VH1′s "Basketball Wives: LA." And though Tanya is in the middle of divorce proceedings with Jayson she told paper,
"I signed on to participate in the show to elevate the negative perception . . . that [it] is purposely filled with flighty, overly emotional and sense lessly dramatic women. Yes, my life is chaotic, dramatic and surreal, but I am also a businesswoman."
And if you thought Jennifer and Eric had a messy marriage, wait till you get a load of Tanya and Jayson. You may remember that Jayson was acquitted in the accidental shooting of his limo driver. And while all that mess was going on, he had series of negative press reports involving drinking, drugs and a suicide attempt.
He is currently behind bars after accepting a plea deal for trying to cover up the accidental death. But guess what…..he is up for parole next month when the show premieres.
That show is going to be a SH*TSTORM of mess. And we’re going to love every minute of it.
But I wonder if Tanya and Shaunie get along or if she is a part of the "trash" factor Shaunie talked about a while back?

Kelly Rowland’s Father Reaches Out 23 Years Later
The estranged father of Kelly Rowland is reaching out to his daughter hoping to reconcile with her after 23 years without contact.
Rowland, who is currently judging Simon Cowell’s U.K. X-Factor, has reportedly not seen her biological father Christopher Lovett since she was seven years old.
Now Lovett, 65, hopes to change that and sat down for an interview with Britain’s The Daily Mirror where he spoke on his failed relationship with his daughter.
Choking back tears he told The Mirror,
“Kelly, I love you with all my heart. Please forgive me and let me be your dad again.”
According to Lovett, he failed to provide for his family, had a drinking problem and a ‘vicious temper’ that tore his family apart but says he loved his daughter from the very start.
“I loved her from the moment she took her first breath. I remember as clear as day Kelly and I singing together, from the moment she could talk. Our favorite songs were by Stevie Wonder. I would put one headphone in my ear and the other in hers and we would sing and sing, so happy to be together.
But then I lost my job at a transportation company, sank into a depression about money and began drinking more and more. The failure to provide for my family fuelled an anger that I will be ashamed of until my dying day.”
While Rowland hasn’t had contact with him in over two decades, she previously spoke of her father in an interview saying,
“I don’t know where he is but I hope he’s not dead. That would break my heart. I remember my dad being drunk and aggressive towards my mom but not me. I don’t know if he knows who I am or what I’ve done. He must be hiding under a rock if he doesn’t.”
Lovett also made sure to add that he’s not after his celebrity daughter’s money, but just wants to be in her life during his old age.
I own a big home now and have retired so I don’t want any of Kelly’s fortune, I just want her love. I just hope she does not become such a big star in England on X Factor that she forgets about her dad completely.
“I’m getting old now – I just hope she reads this and doesn’t leave getting back in touch with me before it is too late.”
Lovett also revealed a time where he drove 8 hours to a Destiny’s Child concert to watch her perform and tried to give her a note but security guards who did not believe he was her real father, denied him.
