Erykah Badu Pens Sweet Message To Kanye West: “Thanks For Fighting For Us”

Kanye West is no stranger to criticism. Since embarking on his journey to stardom back in 2003, the music mogul has been blasted and called out by everyone from former POTUS Barack Obama to his “big brother” Jay-Z . Despite the years of backlash, Kanye has never shied away from speaking his truth no matter what the costs. 

Last month, the impassioned designer went on a week-long social media rant, blasting Adidas and GAP for allegedly “stealing his designs and lying to him.” During his Internet rampage, Kanye decided that it was time to “go at it alone,” while demanding to sever ties with the fashion corporations. “It’s fine. I made the companies money. The companies made me money. We created ideas that will change apparel forever. Now it’s time for Ye to make the new industry. No more companies standing in between me and the audience,” he told Bloomberg.

While many slammed West for his  quarrelsome approach to the situation, others praised the DONDA star for taking a stand and taking matters into his own hands. After running in to Ye at the Burberry show during London Fashion Week, Erykah Badu penned a sweet message to her “friend Ye”, letting him know that she supports him and his movement. 

“Art kids.. Badu x Ye supporting our friend @ricardotisci,” the songstress penned alongside a photo of her and Kanye. “By the way. Let me tell you about my friend Ye. No one is more beautiful and kind and creative. Was there at his mama home going.” The Window Seat singer went on to honor her dear friend and his work, adding,  “IN ESSENCE. We all want the same thing .. to be loved and to work with pride . Thanks for fighting for us and for your self most of all I get it. @kanyewest and thanks for the secret show at Burberry after party. I was there”

The sweet message comes on the heels of Kanye appearing on Good Morning America, admitting that radio host Sway had the answers back in 2013 when he told College Dropout star to “cut the middle man” and fund his own brand. Share your thoughts below. 

Diddy Sued By Woman Who Claims To Be Kim Porter’s Niece: Report

A strange report has emerged this week and it shows that Sean “Diddy” Combs is being targeted in a lawsuit. This isn’t just any bit of litigation; the person taking to Diddy to court is only known by “Jane Roe” in documents, stated TMZ, but in a follow-up, a “source” claimed the woman wasn’t telling the truth.

Today (September 27), the outlet reported that Roe alleged she is a relative of Kim Porter‘s who worked for the mogul as a live-in nanny.

Porter, who unexpectedly passed away in November 2018, was Diddy’s ex and mother to three of his children. Roe—who stated that she is the late mom of four’s niece—suggested that the day after Porter passed, Diddy asked her if she could move in and become a full-time, around-the-clock nanny to his twin daughters, D’Lila and Jessie James.

It was in August 2020, nearly two years after Porter’s death, that Roe claimed she told Diddy she was pregnant and asked for maternity leave. When the time came for her to temporarily leave her position, Roe alleged that Diddy was angered and fired her. She claimed that because she was with child but unmarried, he said it “set a bad example” for his kids.

After their story went viral, TMZ returned to say that a “source” told them the woman was not Porter’s niece, nor was she terminated because she was expecting.

Akbar V’s Twitter Account Suspended After Cardi B Fallout

The internet was ablaze from morning until evening thanks to Cardi B and Akbar V’s epic blowout. The two women haven’t had much public contact with one another, but after Akbar landed herself a feature on Nicki Minaj‘s “Super Freaky Girl (Queens Mix),” she soon found her name being entangled with Minaj’s former foe.

There are some who have alleged that for days, Akbar has been subliminally shading Cardi with posts until finally, the Bronx rapper bit back.

The explosive fallout was witnessed in real-time by fans and admirers of both women. Cardi even shared a look at a sex tape of Akbar while Akbar countered by involving Offset in the drama. After she fired off a few insults, the Migos star jumped online to set her straight, denying allegations that he called her with angry messages.

In the follow-up, people noticed today that Akbar’s Twitter account has been suspended. This has caused all kinds of speculative reports and posts, as people weighed if Cardi deserved to be suspended, as well. Others suggested that Cardi’s team is in cahoots with the powers that be.

It is unclear if Akbar will receive her account back, but this isn’t the first time she’s dealt with matters like this.
