Another one bites the dust! Omarion and his beautiful girlfriend, Apryl Jones, who is also the mother of his two children have called it quits.

Apryl took to Twitter to initially tell the world that her and the Posta Be rapper we’re no longer together.

Then she went to Snapchat to further explain the reasoning behind their split. She claims infidelity was not a factor in them going their separate ways but it was simply that they grew apart.

Omarion responded on Instagram with a heart felt letter and emphasize this would be his one and only time addressing the breakup publicly.

The couple started their relationship in 2012 but snatched America’s heart on the season premier of Love and Hip Hop Hollywood in 2014. Omarion, 31, and Jones, 29, welcomed their first child, son Megaa Omari on the show’s first season. In March, Jones gave birth to their second child, daughter A’mei Kazuko Grandberry. Many fans think that their abrupt split might be for ratings for the upcoming third season of the Love and Hip Hop Hollywood franchise but many forget that they’re not going to be on the next season. Jones claims she’s happy and Omarion is focusing on his career, promoting his new single. Though it seems final, many are hoping that the duo find their way back to each other again.

“This Hits Close To Home”–Michael B. Jordan (@michaelb4jordan) Speaks Out on Police Brutality!

Screen-Shot-2016-07-09-at-11.36.29-PM

The tragic losses of Alton Sterling and Philando Castille at the hands of police officers this past week has caused nothing short of a national uproar, and once again shined light on police brutality. Interestingly, and thankfully, more and more celebrities are speaking out about police brutality and gun violence. Many of them have taken it personally as they realize they, or a member of their families, could be victims of police violence.

Michael B. Jordan, one of the greatest young actors of our time, has eloquently posted his own opinion of this week’s events in a heartfelt Instagram post. See it below:

I've been trying to process all that has occurred in the last few days and I’m still looking for the words to express my pain. The fact is Alton Sterling and Philando Castile were not unfortunate accidents. These are just a few of the countless incidents of violent neglect, poor training and lack of accountability that clearly illustrate one thing: Black people are being disproportionally dehumanized and murdered, this must stop! I care about the safety of my black brothers and sisters and my blue ones too. There are no adequate words for the fallen officers in Dallas. From the bottom of my heart, I thank them for protecting the peaceful protestors, their courage and effort to support us is what we need more of. This hits close to home. It could have easily been myself, my little brother, my dad, one of my friends, or any of us. When one of us is murdered because a police officer is “afraid for their life”, it pains us – we feel it. In the wake of these senseless murders, our homes are forever broken; families are left to figure it out. I’m concerned about my mother, my sister, and all my magical black women that are left to pick up the pieces. Often they are not acknowledged or thanked for being on the front line fighting these battles for and with us, but know your continued strength, courage, and unwavering love and support gives us the strength to keep fighting. Finding solutions in these times of survival are seemingly hard to identify but we must continue to keep moving forward. Alternatively, violence is not the answer; it only begets more fear and violence. This is the time to unify; our communities, our churches and our homes. My mission is to channel my anger and energy – along with my love and hope for the future into actively finding solutions. Change will take all of us, we can no longer say or do…Nothing. “Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable. Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals.” -MLK

We wholeheartedly agree with Michael. It is time to take a stand. As always and forevermore, #BlackLivesMatter!

#Touching–Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) Posts Handwritten Card for The Families of Those Lost in Orlando Shooting

taylor swift hey mikey atl

It has been a week since we all woke to the tragic loss of forty-nine lives in Orlando, Florida due to a senseless and hateful act. As the nation struggles to deal with and move past this terrible tragedy, the love and support for the families and victims continues to go on. In a touching act,  singer and pop star, Taylor Swift created a handwritten card for the families of those lost. Check it out below

All we can say is that we truly share her sentiments. Just think about it–forty-nine funerals for the biggest massacre in recent American history. We just hope and wish Taylor, and other celebrities’, support for the victims would move towards legislation. Surely with their influence we could get some of these much needed gun control laws in place. Lord knows this was senseless, but it is comforting to know people still care. We too will continue to offer our prayers, support, and condolences to the families of those lost. #GoneTooSoon, #PrayersForOrlando

A Must See! Check Out Nene Leakes (@neneleakes) New Face!

nene leakes hey mikey atl

Nene Leakes is undoubtedly one of the queens of reality television–and like any queen she has the funds to change her looks with at a moment’s notice. However, is that necessarily a good thing? Sometimes celebrities go too far with their “enhancements,” looking so different we barely recognize them. Just think about Lil Kim, Michael Jackson, and Heidi Montag. It looks like Nene is the latest pawn in that trend. Check out the picture she posted earlier today below:

nene leakes hey mikey atl

Social media, especially in the spheres of Instagram and Black Twitter, are not too thrilled about her new look. Many fans feels she looks like a cross between Tamar Braxton and Sheree Whitfield! Nene just does not look like herself anymore. We were all for her fitness,  boob job, tummy tuck, nose job, and veneers–conventional body modification. Mrs. Leakes prides herself on keeping it real we just hope she gets back to that. No one is against plastic surgery, we just love Nene and want her to keep being the loud and proud sister we know and love. Be a “Real Housewife” Nene, but just keep it all the way real and recognizable!

What do you guys think of Nene’s new look. Is she too far gone? Sound off below in the comments’ section.

[VIDEO] Snoop Dogg (@SnoopDogg) Calls for a Boycott of History Channel’s (@HISTORY) “Roots” Remake (@RootsSeries)!

snoop dogg hey mikey at;

The story of Roots and its broadcasting has always been controversial. When the first series debuted in the seventies, it was hailed as a masterpiece by most, but many people found it to be infuriating, insulting, and demeaning. Well, the remake of one of the greatest stories ever brought to television is debuting tonight and is being met with a little adversity from a surprising source–OG rapper, Snoop Dogg!

Snoop took to Instagram posting a video that called for a boycott of Roots, stating the following:

via Love B. Scott

“12 Years a Slave, Roots, Underground… I can’t watch none of that shit,” he says. “They’re going to just keep beating that shit in our heads how they did us, huh? I don’t understand America. They just want to keep showing the abuse we took hundreds and hundreds of years ago. But guess what? We’re taking the same abuse. Think about that part.”

We can understand where Snoop is coming from, but this is the story that begin the legacy for so many black actors and actresses. It is important we move forward to the future, but we cannot forget our past. Slavery and the struggle are as much apart of the African-American experience as any of our accomplishments. We respect Snoop, but this remake deserves a chance. After all, no one complains when they remake a Ben Hur, Spider-Man, or Batman movie! #CutItOut Be sure you catch Roots 9 PM EST only on History Channel.

Adele (@adele) Drops New Music Video For ‘Send My Love (To Your New Lover)’!

adele hey mikey atl

While we were all tuned in to the Billboard Music Awards last night, singer Adele dropped her new music video for single ‘Send My Love (To Your New Lover).’

Though Adele was not in attendance at the awards due to her world tour, she won five of them! As Billboard awarded her with more trophies, she gave us a sneak peek of her new video via Instagram.

In this video, directed by Patrick Daughters, Adele wears a long-sleeved floral pattern dress by Dolce & Gabbana from their SS16 collection, as she stands in front of a black background and faded out overlying images of herself. She sings, “Send my love to your new lover, Treat her better, We gotta let go of all of our ghosts, We both know we ain’t kids no more,” passionately and full of personality. Adele gives us all kind of attitude, serving face throughout the whole video! (Yes, Adele!!)

This single is from her latest album released six months ago, ‘25‘, which broke multiple records. ‘25’, released in November 2015, was the first album to sell more than 3 million copies in a week, had the most records sold in one week and the best sells in a week by a female-artist.

“Terminated.com?” Tamar Braxton (@TamarBraxtonHer) FIRED from “The Real!”

the real cast hey mikey atl tamar braxton fired

Sorry “tamartians” but your queen is having a bad day! According to a source from a  Love B. Scott exclusive, Tamar Braxton has been axed from The Real!

via Love B. Scott

Tamar Braxton just got fired from ‘The Real.’ She wasn’t reading too well with the audience and sales people didn’t find her to be a good fit with advertisers. She was also too difficult dealing with production.

This definitely explains Tamar’s Instagram post. See below.

I love u all but I have been stabbed in the back by someone I stupidly trusted ( not my man or my sisters) I am not about to be tried and tested to snitch (👀) and it's not in good taste to tell you who...... but as #tamartians you are very smart and can figure things out on your own. But know that every one who smiles in your face is NOT your friend and is NOT cheering for you and will LIE and try and tear u down to TRY and dim your light. Thank GOD HE HOLDS MY FUTURE AND MY HAND! (Remember who u are)....I am Tamar Braxton. And if you thought for 1 sec u played me.....In the late great prince and the amazing Beyoncé voice you PLAYED yourself😂 to God be the Glory and I will be taking a short break from ALL social media...until then❤️ yourself and WATCH YOUR BACK ( I put this picture up cause this is the embrace I got from my sister and best friend that she ALWAYS gives when she knows I've been had)

Yikes! Subsequently, Tamar has stopped following her co-hosts Adrienne Bailon, Jeannie Mai, and Loni Love, or ‘The Real’ on Twitter. She still follows Tamera Mowry-Housley, however. This all screams “scandalous!” There is no word on who would be replacing Tamar, or if there will even be a replacement. A starlet like Keke Palmer or Amandla Stenberg would be good for the demographics! We will keep you posted!
