Tristan Thompson’s Alleged BM Gets Caught Lying About Khloé Kardashian DM

Once Tristan Thompson squeezed himself out of the way of one controversy, another scandal was waiting in the wings. The NBA star took over social media back in 2019 when his name was involved in an entanglement of sorts with Jordyn Woods, causing Tristan and girlfriend Khloé Kardashian to split. Thompson quietly rekindled things with Khloé and they seemed to be on the up and up before a woman came forward with allegations that she’d slept with the basketball star.

As Thompson takes that woman to court over her allegations, another woman named Kim Cakery also surfaced with a few accusations of her own. According to Cakery, Thompson is the father of her young son, but Thompson has reportedly stated that they took a DNA test and it proved he isn’t the boy’s dad. Thompson did, however, admit to…interacting…with Cakery years ago, long before the boy was conceived.

On Instagram, Cakery has regularly called out both Thompson and Kardashian. Recently, she posted a screenshot that suggested Khloé DMed her about this debacle, and it showed as an unopened message. In the image, all the viewer can see is a preview of a message that looks to be sent from Kardashian stating, “Listen at this point I really wa.” In the caption, Cakery wrote, “Sister wife now that ur exposed??… I’m not the one so let’s be nice.”

However, The Shade Room shared a screen recording showing that the previewed message was from Cakery to Kardashian, not the other way around. Since the proof was shared, Cakery has made her page private and has been widely criticized for faking the interaction. Check it out below.

Serena Williams “Feels For Naomi [Osaka]” Following French Open Controversy

The talk of the town today is Noami Osaka’s shocking decision to withdraw completely from the French Open in order to take care of her mental health. The move has brought the subject of mental health back to the forefront of discussions, especially as it pertains to players in the sports world. Osaka has been both praised and criticized for her decision, and Serena Williams, who just triumphed over Irina-Camelia Begu in the first round of the French Open, commented on the controversy following her match.

I feel for Naomi,” Williams said. “Not everyone is the same. I’m thick. Other people are thin. Everyone is different and everyone handles things differently.”

“You really have to step forward and make an effort, just as in anything, and say, ‘I need help with A, B, C and D,’ and talk to someone,” she added. “I think that’s so important to have a sounding board, whether it’s someone at the WTA, or someone in your life, or maybe it’s someone you talk to on a weekly basis.”

“I’ve been in that position, too, and I’ve definitely had opportunities to talk to people and just get things off my chest that I can’t necessarily talk about to anyone in my family or anyone I know.” Osaka has remained a trending topic on multiple social media platforms throughout the day (May 31) as people like Piers Morgan and Candance Owens have criticized her for sharing her mental health struggles publicly, as they believe she’s doing it for sympathy.


Jay Z Revealed That He Only Learned How To Swim After Blue Ivy Was Born

Storytellers like Jay Z are few and far between.

When he’s not dropping hilarious stories about his superstar peers, like remembering how hard it was to follow up DMX as a live act, or sharing backstories about classic rap songs he actually wrote, then there’s the subject of his incredibly famous family. That was the subject of his latest viral tidbit from an episode of LeBron James’ The Shop: Uninterrupted, when Jay let know that he never learned to swim until Blue Ivy was born. To his thinking, there wasn’t much point before, but once her life was in his hands, his reasoning changed.

“I didn’t learn how to swim until Blue was born,” he began. “There goes everything you need to know. This is a metaphor for our relationship. If she ever fell in the water and I couldn’t get her, I couldn’t even fathom that thought. I gotta learn how to swim. That’s it. That was the beginning of our relationship.”

In the clip above, he goes on to speak more specifically to how small moments with her are how he now celebrates huge wins like finding out he was officially going to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame. Check out the snippet and for more Jay Z stories watch full episodes of The Shop on HBO.

Casanova Jokes About Receiving Stimulus Check: “Thank You But No Thank You”

With a federal case hanging over his head, Casanova isn’t going to let the government trip him up. In early December, the rapper surrendered himself over to the authorities after it was revealed that there was a warrant out for his arrest. Casanova is one of over a dozen people named in an indictment against alleged members of the Untouchable Gorilla Stone Nation and later, he reportedly pleaded not guilty to charges of conspiracy to commit racketeering, conspiracy to distribute controlled substances, and firearms possession.

Casanova has regularly taken to his Twitter account to share a few thoughts about what he’s endured and the lack of support from those who he once called friends, but this time, he playfully addressed receiving a stimulus check from Uncle Sam.

“I don’t know what the government is trying to do but I heard they sent a stimulus check to my house, so I sent that sh*t right back [double exclamation mark emoji][crying laughing emoji],” Casanova tweeted. “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA… THANK YOU BUT NO THANK YOU. I DONT NEED YOUR MONEY AND I AIN’T ADDING NO CHARGES TO MY INDICTMENT [crying laughing emojis].”

With all of the trouble people have been getting into with those PPP (Paycheck Protection Program) loans and fraud accusations, Casanova isn’t taking any chances. Check out his tweet below.

Promoters have been put on blast more than once in the last few days. Award-winning singer Kelly Price is an unproblematic celebrity, but she took to the internet to share her anger after she performed and a promoter didn’t pay her. Jeezy, too, took issue with an event he recently did after fans complained that he didn’t perform, however, the Rap mogul jumped online to clarify that he wasn’t hired to take to the stage.

“You know I have to send a PSA out to my city, my second home, Detroit,” said Jeezy in the clip. “So listen, this how it go. I came to the city to give away a thousand bikes to a thousand kids.

“Now, this day party, which was a day party and not a performance. A day party, contractually, in the contract it says, ‘day party.’ I just wanted to pull up and see my people real quick,” he continued. “Get in and get out. It was unorganized, understaffed, and chaos. I got there, nobody knew what to do. They wanted to put me in the skybox for me to watch the crowd from there. Absolutely not. I got my crew together, we walked down to the bleachers so we could see the people.”

Jeezy added that he wanted to make his way down to the field but the promoter couldn’t get him there. He told the public that it’s nothing but love between him and his supporters, but if they’re upset because he didn’t perform, they needed to contact the promoter to see if they could get a refund.

Akbar V Almost Gets Into Altercation With Alexis Skyy & Lira Galore

What led up to this confrontation is debatable, but various clips from a scene outside of a Philadelphia nightclub have gone viral. From what can be gathered, Akbar V, Alexis Skyy, and Lira Galore were all at the same club when there was some sort of disagreement. According to Alexis, she and Lira were booked to host an event and Akbar showed up. None of the women had any animosity with each other before they saw one another at the club, it seems, but Alexis said that Akbar began getting hostile without provocation.

In an Instagram Live session, Akbar claimed one of the women complained about Akbar looking at her funny. While this doesn’t seem like a reason to go to blows outside of a club, Alexis said on her Instagram Live that that’s exactly what happened.

“I have way to much going on positive in my life I , We have to pray for people like this,” Alexis wrote on her Instagram Story. “You called TC to come out to me and Lira hosting trying to prove a point in Philly … when that’s not your city. We never invited you once again & then you come starting drama for no reason you need some spiritual help & the only person that can help you is God.”

Akbar also recently had her Instagram deleted so Alexis added, “Be blessed Akbar someone help her get her IG back.” Meanwhile, Akbar tweeted that neither Lira nor Alexis will be safe in Atlanta, but Lira wasn’t fazed. “ATLANTA my second home,” Lira wrote on her Story. “AND I BE OUTSIDE. Ima TIP TOE WHEREVER I PLEASE . A b*tch can’t EVER TELL ME WHERE I CAN’T GO [crying laughing emojis] B*tch PLZ. Ion think y’all know how tf I get DOWN.”

Akbar has received backlash for the altercation as people accused her of bullying the two women. Check out the posts, explanations from all sides, and various angles of the altercation.
