[VIDEO] It’s Getting Ugly! Ed Hartwell (@edhartwell1) Reveals Details of His Marriage to Keshia Knight Pulliams (@peachespulliam), She Demands House & ALL Her Money!


We know divorce can be a nasty and ugly business,  but usually it takes time for the pitfalls of the marriage to be revealed to the public. This definitely is not the case with Ed Hartwell and Keshia Knight Pulliam’s pending divorce! Both parties are laying it all out on the table and pulling out their big guns. Keshia has now filed divorce documents of her own, following Ed’s earlier this week.

via TMZ:

Keshia’s asking for all assets she acquired during their marriage — which is interesting considering most couples split assets accumulated during a marriage. 

Keshia also makes a point to demand she be awarded all property and assets she had before the two married, which includes even more ‘Cosby’ cash.

And get this … in Ed’s divorce filing, he stated they had no kids, but Keshia makes it a point to say a child IS expected of the marriage. In other words … Ed’s the daddy.

Back To Splitsville! Mary J. Blige (@maryjblige) Files For Divorce from Kendu Isaacs (@Kenduisaacs)!


This is definitely NOT the week for love and marriage! First, Ed Hartwell and Keshia Knight Pulliam call it quits after just seven months of marriage; and now legendary singer, Mary J. Blige, has filed for divorce from her husband/manager Kendu Isaacs! Mary cites “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the divorce. We just wonder what those reasons are. The last time we heard something like that Bruce and Kris Jenner were calling quits and Caitlyn Jenner was well on her way into the world!

via TMZ:

Blige lists the date of separation as “to be determined” — unclear why.  

Blige cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split. They couple has no children together. 

There is one interesting note … Blige is asking the judge to block Isaacs’ ability to get spousal support. The document does not say if there is a prenup. 

We reached out to Blige and Isaacs — so far, no word back. 

Unclear what went wrong — but back in 2014, Blige talked about the challenges of dating her manager during an interview with Stella Magazine. 

“He always has my back — he’s going to fight to the death for Mary J Blige. The downside is that there’s no separation — it’s on all the time.”

“When you don’t feel like answering to your manager, he’s still your husband. If one of you doesn’t want to talk about something right now, you have to respect that. And you have to respect each other’s space.”

Yikes! This is not the first time Mary and Kendu’s marriage has made headlines. As you recall, in 2014 she stated on The Wendy Williams Show that she and her soon to be ex-husband do not have friends of the opposite sex. Maybe Kendu got a “girlfriend?” We definitely do not know, but we will keep you posted. Anti-Cupid is on the loose!

[VIDEO] Truly Get To Know More “About Him!” Check Out Kontrol Magazine’s (@kontrolmag) Exclusive w/ Gary Lavard (@GaryLavard)!

gary lavard vincent hey mikey atl about him

If you have been watching Signal 23 TV or YouTube, then you know Summer 2016 has been hot–and we aren’t talking about actual heat. There is a new web series on the block, About Him, that captivates the coming of age of a young, Black gay man, Damien (Brandon Karson), on the cusp of adulthood and exploring his sexuality during his final summer before college. Damien is fiercely in love with his older brother’s best friend, Vincent (Gary Lava, an athlete, ladies’ man, and bisexual who also finds Damien attractive. Their flirtation is tantalizing, their hook ups are hot, and its loves us all wanting to know more “about them!”

Recently, Gary Lavard, also known as “Vincent” sat down for an exclusive interview with Kontrol Magazine. There he not only discussed the show, how he perceives Vincent, and his role, but his background as a true actor, learning his craft. Check out an excerpt below:

gary lavard hey mikey atl about him

With the height and stature of a football player, the last words you’d expect to hear from Gary Lavard are shy, laidback or mildly timid. Or, that he never really played sports. I could hardly believe it myself, but those are words he would use to describe himself, at least before joining the cast of About Him.

Like many, I was introduced to him as Vincent, this disarming, self assured, sex fueled character he plays on the web series that chronicles the coming of age story of a young man, Black, trying to discover himself and his sexuality with little help from his father or brother, all set to the backdrop of the 90’s.

Vincent is the guy that I feel like most gay people would try to get with. He’s masculine, he’s confused, and he is all those things I feel a guy is at that point, you know? Trying to find yourself. I really signed on to do that story because I felt that for one it’s a story that’s kind of swept under the rug on mainstream TV. My goal as an actor, I want to do things that are complex and that no one is doing and I felt like it was a good thing and I could impact the LGBT community and so far I’ve gotten a great response.

Kiersey Clemons (@KierseyClemons) Lands Role of Iris West in Upcoming “Flash” Movie!

kiersey clemons hey mikey atl

Kiersey Clemons has landed a new role starting opposite Ezra Miller in “The Flash” movie.

Variety first reported earlier this month that she was the top choice for the female lead in the Warner Bros. film. Sources have confirmed that Clemons is set to play Iris West, the tough-as-nails journalist and love interest/friend of Barry Allen, the Flash’s alter ego.


Clemons’ rise to stardom has inclined since her breakout performance in “Dope.” She landed a role as one of Chloe Moretz’s sorority sisters in “Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising,” as well as one of the leads in Sony’s remake of “Flatliners.”

Clemons is reuniting with director Rick Famuyiwa for this film. They previously worked together on Dope. Before Famuyiwa was reassigned to the project, Seth Grahame-Smith was hired to be the writer and director but severed ties with Warner Bros. over creative differences. Regardless, Grahame-Smith’s most recent draft, based on a treatment by “The LEGO Movie’s” Phil Lord and Chris Miller, will be used. Despite the hurdles of replacing the director, the movie appears to be able to meet its planned start date. Production is expected to commence sometime this year.


Congratulations Kiersey! We can’t wait to see your Black Girl Magic unfold in your upcoming role.
