Relationships and Family


common father

Our prayers go out to Common and his family after his father, Lonnie “Pops” Lynn, passed away last week. He was 71. The rapper shared the sad news in an interview yesterday, revealing that his father went peacefully on Friday (Sept. 12).

big sean naya

2014 has been anything but easy for Big Sean. While his career has continued to flourish, Sean’s love life suffered a devastating blow when his engagement to Glee star Naya Rivera fell apart in the first half of 2014.

In interviews, both parties kept their cool and backed away from completely trashing each other. However, the Detroit rapper has finally rapped about his break-up on wax. On “I Don’t F**k With You,” Sean makes it clear that he has no f**ks to give about his ex.

Listen to the song below…

Oh just bring on the aneurysm. The first season of VH1′s ‘Love And Hip Hop Hollywood’ will be infecting us in just a few scant days. While New York seems to have run it’s course, and Atlanta has gone from telenovela hilarity to tiring absurdity…the latest iteration of the exaggerated reality of has-beens and never-wuzes is now based in Los Angeles (Houston and Miami allegedly on the way?) with a cast that includes Ray J, Soulja Boy, Omarion…Lil Fizz and Yung Berg. LIL FIZZ AND YUNG BERG.
Do you need help getting up?

Also, primed to “bring the drama” is Teairra Mari…most notable for having far too many vowels in her first name, as well as being the Jay Z ingenue that did not become Rihanna.

Apparently Ray J was dating Teairra (perhaps in preparation for a juicy storyline for this show)…but is now dating his personal assistant. So there will be fights…
As previewed in the video below, along with Teddy Riley’s daughter Nia making a terrible mistake with Soulja Boy….um, TELL ‘EM?

The 2013 BET Awards

Celebs are just like us….in that, when it comes to personal relationships, we’re all a mess. Sure it’s easy to judge Ciara and Future on the unceremonious cancellation of their wedding engagement just 3 months after the birth of their son, Future Jr.. But it’s safe to say there’s been many a relationship ruined by the pressures of new parenthood (even though, technically, it’s not like this is new for Future). And…it’s also pretty often that exes reunite after the thrill of singledom wears off, or maybe you start thinking about your ex moving on without you.

In the case of Ciara and Future…TMZ reports (which likely means they were given a strategically placed tip by the couple’s reps) that the singer and sing-rapper are back together, living in the same house again, in an effort to do what’s best for Baby Future.

ASAP-Rocky-Chanel-Iman-Vogue-6

There may be more famous and more exciting power couples in the hip hop hemisphere…but my vote for purely best looking goes to ASAP Rocky and his supermodel girlfriend Chanel Iman. Just look at these cheekbones! For all the stereotypes about haughty snotty models, and all the stereotypes about surly asshole rappers…in all my experiences, Chanel and Rocky have been the total opposite. If you’ve watched the recent Noisey documentary about Rocky, you can see some of the endearing personality I’m talking about. And as for Chanel…I remember this one time when Rocky excited introduced me to her as “his other favorite woman” and she never turned up her nose or gave me the side-eye. She was very warm and sweet. Months later, Rocky had to do a string of interviews for the BET Awards in LA, I noticed Chanel sitting in the hallway, on the floor, very content, just waiting for her BF for over an hour…like she wasn’t one of the most photographed women in fashion. Kind of amazing.

Anyways, it was only a matter of time for these two to end up with their own Vogue Magazine editorial…and I can see them as cover subjects too. Fashion fan Fucci posted scans of their Vogue September 2014 shoot, spotted on Complex Style Channel.

Treach and Cicely, Couples Therapy VH1

I’m all for therapy… for fighting couples, for happy couples, for individuals, umm, massage therapy, light therapy, equine therapy. Whatever it is…if you can afford it, by all means, therapute the hell out of yourself. But this Couples Therapy show…is like some kind of Wipe Out obstacle course for people who are in a relationship with their own ego but also sleeping someone who is likewise attention-obsessed. And it makes for some addictively cringeworthy television.
This season, Treach Criss and his girlfriend Cicely Evans join the fun house along with the most annoying person on that one season of Jersey Shore that I watched, Deena Cortese and her man, as well as porn star Jenna Jameson and her man. Bring the sorrow.

Seems like some high drama could be in store this season…especially since Treach may be off his rocker lately. Just look at his current demand that Naughty By Nature will only perform without the affable Vin Rock. But will it be fun crazy? Or just exhausting sad crazy? I’m predicting the latter.
And there’s no chance that it will be the surreal, hilarious, charismatic crazy of last season’s breakout star Ghostface Killah

Baby-North-CR-Magazine

Slay! I can’t get enough of Kanye and Kim Kardashian’s little offspring. North West is just so…so…pretty, all pudgy kneecaps and round tummies and big eyes and peach cheeks. She’s always perfectly dressed. Pastel and neutral cashmeres, nubby linens, no crass logos or ironic hashtags or Calabasas sparkles. And she doesn’t promote anything, or pass judgements, or annoy anyone with things like projects, or selfies, or words. We can all enjoy this tiny person’s days of innocence…and the fact that she is so damn cute in every photo.

Perhaps the fact that North has sat for her first solo fashion shoot is the beginning of a less pristine period in her life…but it was inevitable. Technically, her first editorial was when she stole the show from mom and dad in Vogue…but the 1-year-old will be featured all by herself in the new issue of former Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld’s glossy mag CR Fashion Book, shot by Michael Avedon (who is the grandson of legendary fashion photographer Richard Avedon). Just over a year ago, CR featured Kim K. on their cover, heavily pregnant with North at the time and rocking full top and bottom matte gold grills.

ciara future split

Well, damn. It looks like there’s trouble in paradise for Ciara and Future. According to US Weekly, the powerhouse couple have called off their engagement just three months after welcoming their first child, Future Zahir Wilburn, into the world. An insider claims the rapper cheated on his fiancée. The couple had been together for more than a year, with Future popping the question on Ciara’s birthday last October.

Miss Info: As we tweeted this morning, the “Welcome Home Remy” reports are a bit premature.
Remy Ma was expected to walk out of the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility today at 8am. She’s spent past 6 years in prison after being convicted of shooting a former friend in 2008. Her husband Papoose, managers, family members, friends, fans and camera crews stood outside for hours waiting for the 34-year old Reminisce Smith, with an assortment of fancy cars to take her home. But according to sources on the scene, around noon, prison officials came out and spoke to Papoose personally, and soon after, he and his crew left. In a strong show of restraint, Papoose was reportedly calm despite the news.

While it’s unclear why her release has hit a roadblock (parole officials would only confirm to Revolt that she’s still in custody), we were told that Remy Ma spent what was supposed to be the last week of her incarceration in solitary confinement. Her team did not believe it would delay her release…and she has club bookings and events waiting for her availability. While it’s unknown if officials were put off by the crowds outside, or if there was just a paperwork snafu…It’s clear from the photos (below) that Remy’s colleagues, friends, fans, and family are anxious to see her home.

Update: Remy was released at 3PM on Friday (Aug 1). Only her husband, Papoose, went to pick her up to avoid any other further complications. After the disheartening snafus yesterday, her whole team actually waited nearby just in case prison officials cleared up their issues with her alleged “phone violation”. When they finally got the good news today that she could leave, her husband Papoose went to pick her up without the crowds, cars, or camera crews to make sure officials had no excuse to complain…
