“Perdue Chickens can never talk (expletive) about queens,” Minaj says, referring to herself as royalty.

There’s no truce in the Nicki Minaj-Miley Cyrus word wars.

In a new episode of her “Queen Radio” show Friday, Minaj dismissed her fellow music star as a “Perdue chicken” as part of a back-and-forth feud that goes back to 2015.

“Perdue Chickens can never talk (expletive) about queens,” Minaj says, referring to herself as royalty. “But I do notice a lot of Perdue chickens have been trying to say the queen’s name for clout. And that’s always been happening. And that’s what (Cyrus) did in the first place. And the white girl cry and made the black girl seem like she was a bad guy… She disrespected me in a magazine article for no reason.”

In the process, Minaj also threw a crude accusation at Cyrus.

 

Minaj’s slam comes a few weeks after fans questioned whether Cyrus was throwing shade in her new song “Cattitude,” with the lyric: “I love you Nicki, but I listen to Cardi.” (Minaj and rap rival Cardi B got into an infamous brawl at a New York Fashion Week party in September.)

Cyrus clarified the lyrics on Roman Kemp’s Capital Breakfast radio show, saying there is no beef anymore, according to complex.com.

“They’re both queens. And anytime you want to feel powerful and strong, that’s my go-to: Cardi and Nicki,” Cyrus said on the radio show, according to People.com.

Nevertheless, fans looked back to the start of the beef between Cyrus and Minaj in 2015, which opened with Cyrus taking Taylor Swift’s side vs. Minaj in a New York Times interview, according to billboard.com. Minaj responded tartly in person days later at the VMA Awards, saying host Cyrus “had a lot to say about me the other day in the press. Miley, what’s good?”

 

Minaj shared some personal news, too, during the radio show. She started riffing about pregnancy, before saying she wasn’t, “but we did get our marriage license,” she said, referring to boyfriend Kenneth Petty.

She continued, explaining she’s in a good place.

“I think I have what I was striving for, just happiness. It was so hard to get to a happy place. Now that I’m there I don’t want to compromise that for anyone or anything. Certain traveling things I don’t (want to) do it. I’m just enjoying my downtime.”

How Fans remain defiant towards documentary against Michael Jackson.

Defiant fans are preparing to mark 10 years since Michael Jackson’s death as fascination with the King of Pop remains undimmed despite lurid claims of child sex abuse.

On Hollywood’s Walk of Fame, the singer’s star continues to draw a constant scrum of selfie-snapping tourists, while nearby souvenir shops, street performers and even tattoo parlors report a brisk trade in all things Jackson.

Across the street at Ripley’s Believe It Or Not museum, a statue of the singer is strategically perched above the box office to entice tourists. Staff at Madame Tussauds say Jackson’s waxwork remains a top draw.

Yet according to the groundbreaking HBO documentary “Leaving Neverland,” released earlier this year, it was just a few hours’ drive from the heart of Hollywood that Jackson used his celebrity and glamor to molest young boys at his fairytale-themed ranch.

While most fans who spoke to AFP were aware of the documentary, the adoration fostered from growing up with the “Thriller” megastar’s many hits supersedes all else.

“I came here actually only for him. I don’t take pictures with any other star,” said Dutch tourist Hooman Nazemi.

 

“Some stuff that they were saying in the doc was kind of hard, but you cannot say 100 percent it’s true … I just love him. I love him and I think everybody does.”

Antoine Baynes, 31, a Jackson impersonator who moonwalks along Hollywood Boulevard for tourists’ tips, said the allegations had done nothing to diminish his performances’ appeal — in fact, the opposite.

“After the HBO special came out I received just as much if not more attention than before. It kinda gave it publicity,” he said.

“Honestly I’ve married people as Michael Jackson. I have two weddings to do this Sunday, to do as Michael Jackson!”

‘Love Rally’

The claims in the HBO documentary by two men who say Jackson sexually abused them for years as minors were not the first, but reignited the scandal after the star’s fatal overdose at age 50 in 2009.

In his lifetime, Jackson denied all child sex allegations and his estate filed a $100 million lawsuit against HBO for “posthumous character assassination.”

On Tuesday, the anniversary of Jackson’s passing, die-hard fans from around the world have planned an “MJ Innocent Love Rally” through Hollywood to gather at his star on the sidewalk.

Other events include a “zombie dance” on Venice Beach and screenings of fan-made tribute films.

 

Those who cannot attend are invited to donate money for an annual ceremony placing roses by Jackson’s grave in the nearby Forest Lawn cemetery.

Organizers did not respond to a request for comment, but claim on Twitter that a record of more than 18,000 roses have been bought this year.

Yet numbers signing up to the events’ Facebook pages are conspicuously low, and pro-Jackson messageboards are rife with complaints about the lack of mainstream enthusiasm for anniversary events this year.

If the controversy has dampened commemorations — with Variety reporting that TV networks and producers have pulled the plug on long-planned anniversary programs — Jackson’s commercial clout remains substantial.

T-shirts, keyrings and coasters bearing the singer’s likeness remain on prominent display at Hollywood tourist stores lining the boulevard, outnumbered only by images of Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe.

Of a dozen such shops visited by AFP, only one had removed Jackson memorabilia from its shelves, citing a decline in interest.

And for some die-hard fans, a throwaway souvenir just won’t cut it.

“We get people asking for the silhouette, with the hat, sometimes his signature,” said tattoo artist John Lopez.

“Maybe five or six each year. It’s no different this year.”

“I ain’t going to jail”—Cardi B

Cardi B isn’t letting an indictment get her down.

 

During her performance at the 2019 BET Experience on Saturday, the 26-year-old rapper took a moment in between songs to proclaim “I ain’t going to jail” multiple times.

Wearing a sparkly purple look, complete with matching gloves and shoes, as well as fishnet tights, the crowd cheered as Cardi energetically repeated the phrase.

.@iamcardib came through with a message for everyone last night! 😭✊🏽Make sure you tune in for the #BETAwards tonight to see her perform! pic.twitter.com/AB1kzjTFbU
— #BETMusic (@BETMusic) June 23, 2019
Cardi’s proclamation follows her Friday indictment by a grand jury in Queens, New York, for misdemeanor charges stemming from an altercation at a strip club in August 2018.

 

 

Though the specific charges in the indictment are sealed until her arraignment on Tuesday, June 25, when Cardi was initially arrested in October she was charged with two misdemeanors, assault and reckless endangerment.

The incident occurred at the Angels Strip Club in Queens, when the “I Like It” rapper and nine members of her entourage allegedly threw chairs, bottles and a hookah pipe towards bartenders, two of whom were said to be injured.

According to legal documents obtained by ET, one bartender claimed that one of the drinks allegedly thrown by a member of Cardi’s group landed on her face, resulting in burning, itching and temporary blindness in her eyes.

Cardi rejected a plea offer from the Queen’s D.A. in April, and her lawyer has claimed she didn’t injure anyone during the incident.

Super Eagles midfielder Wilfred Ndidi has exemplified one of the qualities of being an husband after buying a new G wagon for his wife Fortune as gift for birthday.
Ndidi and Fortune dated for many years before they recently married in a big traditional and church wedding held in Abuja.

The wedding was attended by some notable Nigerian football administrators, friends and well wishers as the Leicester City star dumped being a bachelor.

Kelechi Iheanacho who plays with Wilfred Ndidi at Leicester City was also present to honor his teammate at the wedding ceremony.

It is expected that Ndidi and his wife should be touring nations as part of honeymoon, but national team engagement did not allow the footballer.

 

He is currently in Egypt with the Super Eagles preparing to play their first match against Burundi at the 2019 Nations Cup.

Interestingly, Ndidi will be making AFCON debut in his career and his wife Fortune will hope he brings home the Cup for them to celebrate.

However, a video was seen online where the G wagon was presented to Ndidi’s wife who was so excited to have the car.

Keeping me closer to home for a majority of the dates is what’s best for my health rn,” Grande tweeted. “love u!”

Ariana Grande is opening up to fans about her mental health efforts and the impact they have on her Sweetener World Tour schedule.

Grande took to Twitter on Thursday to reveal the new dates added to her tour, which are all in the United States. While the 25-year-old “Thank U, Next” singer had already announced that she’d be announcing the second North American leg of the tour, some fans felt slighted by the fact that she didn’t have nearly as many stops in Europe as she did in the U.S.

“I just can’t understand why she’s literally doing 4-5 shows in a STATE instead of going to other countries it really makes no sense to me,” Twitter user @teasybutera wrote, likely referring to Grande’s four back-to-back Florida stops in Tampa, Orlando, Miami and Jacksonville.

 

Grande responded earnestly to the critique, explaining, “The truth is: european leg is going to be a big step. I’m really excited about it and grateful to do it! but since you’re asking, this is simply the best i’m capable of at this time and keeping me closer to home for a majority of the dates is what’s best for my health rn,” Grande tweeted. “love u!”

— Ariana Grande (@ArianaGrande) June 20, 2019
Another fan assured Grande that, no matter what, fans are “proud” of her for even adding more dates to the tour at all.

“Thank u ! i’m very excited about them tbh. doing the best i can do for right now and so grateful for my health and for this chapter and for my fans for supporting and understanding the pace i’m moving at,” she responded. “Sooo grateful for u. thank u.”

— Ariana Grande (@ArianaGrande) June 20, 2019
Grande also said that, while there are no plans on expanding tour dates in Europe, or America for that matter, at this point in time, there’s always the possibility that it could happen in the future.

“As of right now, this is it,” she tweeted. “But i’m kind of excitedly playing it by ear and seeing how it goes you know? being 100% transparent. i’m like so enjoying it right now, but baby steps. who knew we’d end up doing 9 months of shows. it’s been a blessing for sure.”

— Ariana Grande (@ArianaGrande) June 20, 2019
Later, the fan who first sparked the conversation tweeted at Grande again, apologizing for “the way I expressed myself” and adding, “I understand that your health should come first always. thank you for explaining and hopefully you’re gonna get better soon. you have my support forever.”

“Nah of course, i understand i love you. i am getting better n feeling grateful,” Grande replied. “Finding a balance between self preservation and doing what i love. so thank you for supporting that. and also for wanting more of me. i’ll never take that for granted.”

nah of course, i understand i love you. i am getting better n feeling grateful. finding a balance between self preservation and doing what i love. so thank you for supporting that. and also for wanting more of me. i’ll never take that for granted. real shit.
— Ariana Grande (@ArianaGrande) June 20, 2019
To Grande’s credit, the Sweetener World Tour includes 31 stops throughout Europe beginning on Aug. 17 with three shows at The O2 Arena in London, England, where the European leg will also concluded with two additional shows on Oct. 15 and 16.

Grande will also be returning to Manchester, England, on Aug. 25, just over two years after the horrific Manchester Arena Bombing in May 2017, when a terrorist attack immediately following Grande’s performance killed 23 people and left 139 other injured.

Grande, who was physically unharmed in the bombing, has been candid about the emotional and psychological trauma she’s experienced in the years following the shocking attack. She previously returned to Manchester two weeks later to host the One Love Manchester charity concert benefiting the victims of the attacks and their families.

How “Megatron” was dropped by Nicki Minaj.

Nicki Minaj has been quiet for quite some time now, but the rapper is back with her new single, “Megatron.” Nicki dropped the audio and visuals for the new track on Friday (June 21).

“Megatron” is a bouncy and dynamic track. The Mike Ho-directed video also appears to have a very retro vibe as Nicki floats around in a multicolored, bodycon dress and black waves.

Minaj only began teasing the new single a few a days ago. She initially tweeted the song’s title before dropping little hints on social media, followed by an official announcement and preview soon after.

 

It’s expected that Nicki is gearing up for her new album. The “Barbie Dreams” dropped her fourth studio album, Queen, in Aug. 2018, which peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard 200.

Duke of Cambridge clocked 37 today. HURRAY!!!

In honour of the Duke of Cambridge’s 37th birthday on Friday, Kensington Palace has released a throwback picture of the royal. The caption read: “Thank you everyone for your lovely wishes on The Duke of Cambridge’s birthday!” The lovely photo sees William smiling at the camera during a trip to Tanzania from October. The official royal family Twitter account also posted a collage of pictures with the Queen, and wrote: “Happy Birthday to The Duke of Cambridge! #HappyBirthdayHRH.” The message continued: “The Duke of Cambridge is second in line to the throne. His Royal Highness undertakes a number of charitable activities and projects, and carries out public and official duties in support of The Queen, in the UK and overseas, alongside The Duchess of Cambridge.”

 

Although it is yet to be revealed, it is likely that William will be spending the day with his wife Kate and their three children; Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. The celebration comes shortly after the royal couple put on a glamourous appearance at Royal Ascot on Tuesday. During the procession, the Duke and Duchess shared a carriage with Prince Charles and his wife Camilla. The two couples appeared to be in great and relaxed spirits as they happily chatted away during the day’s proceedings.

 

It was also announced earlier this week that Prince William and Kate have formally split from their joint charity with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Seen as the final step in the division of the couples’ public duties, Harry and Meghan are to break away from the Royal Foundation. William and Kate will remain with the original charity, which will be renamed the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. The Royal Foundation said the decision was made following the conclusion of a review into its structure. It said both couples will continue to work together in the future, including on the Heads Together mental health campaign.

Lopez also shared a heartfelt message and an adorable video dedicated to Rodriguez, who is a father of two daughters — 11-year-old Ella and 14-year-old Natasha — and has become close with Lopez’s twins over the course of their relationship.

“How lucky are we to have you in our lives…not only do you make us all laugh everyday, you help us to be our best selves with a loving gentle hand,” Lopez captioned the pic. “Being there and caring with a consistent presence that doesn’t ever waiver.”

Lopez recently spoke with ET’s Nancy O’Dell one day after Emme joined her on stage at the opening night of her It’s My Party Tour at the Forum in Los Angeles, where the mother-daughter duo performed a stunning rendition of “Limitless,” leaving the audience shocked by the 11-year-old’s impressive vocal skills.

“She has it in her blood. She has the lion heart,” said Lopez, who previously told ET that Emme has her “daddy’s voice.” “I [was] just looking at her and I’m just hoping and praying it all goes well. I got choked up [but] she was fine.”

However, she was able to make the ceremony for Zara and Mike Tindall’s daughter Lena this year.

Meghan’s mum Doria Ragland is flying back to the UK to be at Archie’s christening.

She moved in with Harry and Meghan after the birth to help her daughter, however, she recently returned home to California, US.

The christening will take place at St George’s Chapel, where the royal couple wed, and is likely to be a traditional affair.

Cute PHOTO of Kim Kardashian’s son(PSALM WEST) goes viral.

Kim Kardashian West just shared a look at the newest addition to her brood.
West posted an adorable snap to her Instagram page on Monday with the caption, “Psalm Ye.”
It’s unclear if “Ye” is his middle name, which is his father, Kanye West’s nickname.

The couple have not publicly shared the middle names of their other children, Chicago, Saint and North.
The photo comes exactly one month after the Wests welcomed their fourth child via surrogate.
When their surrogate went into labor, grandmother Kris Jenner was taping a segment on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and Kourtney Kardashian was the one to break the news to her.

 

West has been open about her pregnancy struggles, having suffered pre-eclampsia, a complication characterized by high blood pressure with both North and Saint. She also had placenta accreta in both pregnancies, which occurs when the placenta attaches too deeply in the uterine wall.
“I enjoyed the surrogacy process,” she said during an appearance on “Live with Kelly and Ryan.” “When it came time to breastfeed, I realized it was the best decision I have made — it’s a game changer,” she said. “I can spend so much more time with the older kids, getting them used to the new baby.”

She followed that tweet up with two photos with Hemsworth from the set of their 2010 movie “The Last Song,” where the two first met.

The couple began dating after meeting as co-stars and got engaged in 2012, though they called off their first engagement the following year. T
The stars later rekindled their romance and in 2016, during an interview on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” Cyrus confirmed that she and Hemsworth were back together and engaged.
The couple tied-the-knot in a small ceremony in front of family and friends in December.

“I’m asked a lot about, ‘Is there infidelity in your relationship with Will?'” Pinkett Smith said. “And it’s like, ‘No, but there have been other betrayals of the heart that have been far bigger than I could even think in regards to an infidelity situation.'”
She said she and Smith had to reassess their relationship.
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith say their bond transcends mere marriage
“Specifically for me, in regards to redefining my marriage as a life partnership was the necessity of autonomy for myself and for Will, and finding the core of us that wanted to be together outside of the constraints of the traditional ideas of marriage because they weren’t working for us,” Pinkett Smith said. “Because they weren’t working for us.”
The star said she came to realize that their life together was based on Smith’s dream.
But as she she started exploring her own independence, Pinkett Smith said her husband “felt abandoned at first, he felt really abandoned.”
‘That’s one of the reasons why I stayed in it the way I did for so long,” she explained. “You never want to hurt the person that you love. I never want to create instability in that way. So I stayed in that position for so long because I didn’t know how to say it.”

“Once you change the life story, you can create a new love story,” Perel responded.
“That’s exactly what has occurred, and it’s been beautiful,” Pinkett Smith said.

”I do whatever the f**k I want to do with my body—Cardi B

Cardi B has claimed she is done with surgery after her recent liposuction.

The ‘Bodak Yellow’ hitmaker – who gave birth to her daughter Kulture 11 months ago – postponed a series of concerts in May when she realised she had been ”overzealous” in trying to head back to work straight after having undergone the cosmetic surgery to help her regain her pre-pregnancy body.

Now she has returned to the gym and admitted she doesn’t want to go under the knife again.

She tweeted: ”I been working out for the past 2 weeks cause bitch I ain’t getting surgery again but let me tell you I haven’t got a headache ever since.”

The ‘Please Me’ hitmaker recently slammed her critics who hit out at her for the decision to axe her gigs and said she can ”do whatever the f**k” she wants with her body.

On an Instagram Live video, she said: ”I do whatever the f**k I want to do with my body, I don’t have the time of day like you do. My job as an entertainer is a 24-hour job, bro. So no, I don’t have time to work out. I wanted specific things that I know that no matter how much I work out won’t get fixed.”

 

Cardi, 26, also said she ”hates” cancelling shows because she never wants to miss out on the pay cheque attached to her work, but knew it was the right thing to do for the sake of her health.

She added: ”I hate cancelling shows because I love money. I’m a money addict. I get paid a lot of money, a lot of money for these shows. A lot of money. I’m cancelling millions of dollars in shows, but health is wealth so I have to do what I have to do.”

In a statement from her representatives earlier this month, it was confirmed she would be axing all her shows that were planned for May, in an attempt to give her time to recover from her surgery.

The message read: ”Cardi was overzealous in getting back to work, she didn’t take the time necessary to fully recover from her surgery. Her strenuous schedule has taken a toll on her body and she has been given strict doctors orders to pull out of the rest of her performances in May.

”She’s very disappointed as she hates to let her fans down. She reassures them that she will see them in September.”

Why R Kelly’s Ex-Wife(Andrea KELLY) cried?

Drea Kelly just can’t escape the drama surrounding her ex-husband, R. Kelly.

ET has an exclusive sneak peek at Thursday’s episode of Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta, in which Drea breaks down over having to relive her experience with the musician with each new headline about him.
“As soon as I feel like, ‘OK, I got me and the kids, we got a level of normalcy, life is going,’ some headlines [appear] — being arrested to new evidence surfacing to him not paying child support. I’m like, ‘What?'” she reveals. “And what’s worse is I find out like everybody else. I’m on social media, my phone is like, ‘ping, ping!'”

ET exclusively announced in March that Drea was joining the cast of Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta amid her and Kelly’s child support battle. Kelly and Drea share three children together — Joann, 21, Jay, 19, and Robert, 17.

 

 
“These past few months have been a roller coaster of emotion,” says Drea, who spoke out against Kelly in Lifetime’s Surviving R. Kelly docuseries earlier this year. He has denied any wrongdoing.

“When I think about the ways that I have been abused by Robert, from being hogtied, having both of my shoulders dislocated, to being slapped, pushed, having things thrown as me, the sexual abuse, the mental abuse, words can’t even describe,” she alleges. “There’s some things that I don’t even speak anymore, that I feel like, once you give it to God, you better leave with God, because if I don’t leave it with God, I’m definitely going to be somewhere with my hands on the glass, visiting my children every other Sunday.”

Drea gets emotional in the clip, crying over being “attacked” by other women for the allegations she’s leveled against her ex. “Here I am, putting myself in a position because I want to help women, and they are attacking me!” she sobs.

 

Last month, Kelly was charged with 11 felony counts of sexual assault and sexual abuse related charges. Kelly has since pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Kelly’s crisis manager, Darrell Johnson, told ET at the time: “These ‘new’ charges are not really new — they are the same conduct, just charged differently, same alleged victim, same time frame, same facts. There are still four cases, not five. And we still expect the same results.”

What an amazing revelation from Jennifer Aniston.

Jennifer Aniston might be happily single but that doesn’t mean she’s not looking.

The 50-year-old “Murder Mystery” star stopped by “The Talk” to chat about her new Netflix movie and also tease some details about her upcoming series on Apple’s new streaming service, Apple TV+.

During her appearance, Aniston admitted that all of the ladies on “The Morning Show” set had a huge crush on “The Office”s Steve Carell.

“He’s like a silver fox now,” Aniston said. “And he just came in and no one expected, you know … everybody was so cute, and he’s so shy and fantastic. He’s just better with age, it’s amazing.”

 

Also starring in the highly-anticipated series is 43-year-old Reese Witherspoon. Back in March, they all made an appearance at an Apple event in Cupertino, Calif., to talk about the new project.

“We pull back the curtain on the power dynamics between men and women in the high stakes world of morning news shows,” Witherspoon revealed. “It’s seen through the eyes of two ambitious female characters.”

 

While Carell joked that everyone is going to love his character: “He is bold and dynamic. He has a lot of gravitas. He is a great listener. He is also relatable and extremely handsome. His colleagues love him, and America loves him.”

“The Morning Show” also stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Billy Crudup.

Chris Brown becoming a father for the second time with Ex-girlfriend.

Someone better tell Royalty Brown the good news. Chris Brown is apparently about to become a dad for the second times, as his rumored ex-girlfriend, Ammika Harris, is reportedly pregnant!

Chris Brown, 30, is going to be a father – again! The “No Guidance” rapper is expecting his second child with ex-girlfriend Ammika Harris, 26, Page Six reports. The publication claims a source told them of Chris’s second foray into fatherhood, and that this pregnancy was the impetus for his recent breakup from Indyamarie, 25. Once Indyamarie reportedly heard about this pregnancy, she pulled a Karrueche Tran, 31, and bolted (Page Six noted that Chris “isn’t dating Harris at this time.”)

 

 

 

HollywoodLife has reached out to reps for clarification on this, and we will update this post with any more information when/if it’s made available. If this reported pregnancy is giving you a bad case of déjà vu, don’t freak out, as it seems eerily similar to what happened in March 2015. Chris’s relationship with Karrueche Tran fell apart when the Claws actress – and the rest of the world – found out that he had fathered a child with another woman. “Y’all know a Nia?” she tweeted, indicating Nia Guzman. Though Chris lost a girlfriend, he gained a daughter – the now-five-year-old Royalty Brown. While Chris’s relationship with Karrueche would get ugly after the breakup, his relationship with Royalty would be the complete opposite, as he always seems the proud papa when sharing pictures of her on his social media.

Chris hinted that he and Ammika were about to start a family. He kept on leaving comments such as “my baby mama” underneath her Instagram photos. “At first everyone assumed he was just being sweet to Ammika and calling her his ‘baby mama’ because they’re long distance and they were having some issues,” a source close to Chris told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY in May 2019, “but now it’s getting to the point where his friends are all starting to really suspect that it’s true, that Ammika is really having his baby.”

Speaking of Chris creeping on another person’s Instagram, he supposedly threw some shade at Karrueche Tran, courtesy of Victor Cruz, 32. The former New York Giants wide receiver is dating Karrueche, which seemingly upset Chris. “No shade boo, BUT PLEASE STYLE HIM,” Chris commented on an IG pic of Vic and Karrueche. “He look like he shopping of the manikin and trying to bargain with the sales manager. Retired wrestler spanks [sic].”

Chris denied that he made those comments and said his account was hacked. Just in case you forgot, Chris and Karrueche dated on and off from 2010 to 2015, and she took out a five-year restraining order against Chris in 2017 after he allegedly sent threating text messages to her.

Chris Brown and Ammika Harris back as a family.

Congratulations are in order for Chris Brown!

The rapper is expecting his second child with Ammika Harris, according to multiple reports. Their current relationship status is unclear, but outlets are reporting that they are no longer together.

Chris was last linked to the Instagram model Indya Marie.

Neither Chris or Ammika have addressed the pregnancy, but people believe that the rapper has been hinting at the happy news on Instagram for quite some time. On one of the model’s Instagram posts from May, Chris commented, “BM Bad,” with BM standing for baby mama.

Their baby will join half-sibling Royalty, whose mother is Nia Guzman. According to the star, he finds that being a father is “very humbling” and he clearly dotes on the 5-year-old.

 

His Instagram is littered with photos of the adorable little girl, who he treated to a full photo shoot in honor of her birthday.

While the star is likely overjoyed about becoming a father for the second time, he is once again embroiled in drama involving his ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran and her boyfriend Victor Cruz.

 

He took to Instagram on Thursday to express anger over allegedly being hacked by people on Instagram. He claims that these were the people who made insulting comments on Tran’s Instagram, not him.

If that’s the case, it’s good to hear that Karrueche and Chris are both moving on with their lives!
