JADA PINKETT SMITH ATTACKED FILMMAKERS OF THE TUPAC FILM

Actress Jada Pinkett Smith has attacked the filmmakers behind new Tupac Shakur biopic All Eyez On Me for the way they have depicted her relationship with the late rapper.

The film, starring Demetrius Shipp, Jr. and Kat Graham as Tupac and Jada, was released on Friday – what would have been the rapper’s 46th birthday – and though the critics are raving, The Matrix Reloaded star is far from impressed.

In a series of tweets sent out on Friday, she wrote: “Forgive me… my relationship to Pac is too precious to me for the scenes in All Eyez On Me to stand as truth.”

Jada then detailed the inaccuracies in the movie, stating: “Pac never read me that poem. I didn’t know that poem existed until it was printed in his book… Pac never said goodbye to me before leaving for LA. He had to leave abruptly and it wasn’t to pursue his career.”

“I’ve never been to any of Pac’s shows by his request,” she added. “We never had an argument backstage.”

And Jada admits the “reimagining of my relationship to Pac” has been “deeply hurtful”.

However, the actress, who became one of Shakur’s closest friends when they attended Baltimore’s School of Arts in Maryland together, insists she still thinks the stars of the new biopic deserve credit for their performances, adding: “Thank you for bringing so much heart and spirit to your roles. You both did a beautiful job with what you were given. Thank you both.”

Jada ended her social media rant by wishing her late friend a happy birthday, adding, “you are cradled in my heart for eternity. I love you.”

ZOE KRAVITZ CONFIRMS SHE DATED DRAKE FOR A MINUTE

Zoe Kravitz has brushed off rumors that she was once in a relationship with Drake.

The Mad Max: Fury Road actress has previously been linked to Hollywood stars Penn Badgley and Michael Fassbender and is currently dating actor Karl Glusman.

But during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Thursday night, Zoe was asked about speculation that had secretly been seeing the Canadian rapper in 2013, after they were spotted at a Beyonce concert together.

“We hung out for a minute, but we are very good friends,” she said coyly, to which host Andy asked, “You hung out, like, mashed a little bit?”
“We hung out a little bit. You know, it’s like how I hang out, I don’t know how you hang out,” the platinum blonde star responded, adding, “He’s a cutie!”

Zoe’s chat marks the second time in recent months that Andy has managed to get the dirt on secret celebrity romances, as he also got Jenna Dewan Tatum to recently admit that she briefly dated Justin Timberlake in the early 2000s.

Meanwhile, Andy also got the 28-year-old to touch upon her friendship with Nicole Kidman, whom she co-starred with in HBO’s Big Little Lies.
The Australian actress was once engaged to Zoe’s musician father, Lenny Kravitz, and the star explained that meeting up on the TV show wasn’t uncomfortable in the slightest.

“She was always so, so nice to me, and I hadn’t seen her since I was like 13 years old,” she shared. “But she was always so, so sweet to me so it was nice to see her again. And she’s also very professional so it was not weird at all.”

Janet Jackson Planning Fly-on-the Wall Reality Show – Report

Janet Jackson is reportedly in negotiations to film her own reality show

The 51-year-old sister of late superstar Michael Jackson is said to be in talks with streaming website Netflix for a lucrative deal to film a 10-part fly-on-the-wall documentary show.

According to editors at British newspaper The Sun, Janet’s reality show will give fans a unique look into the Control singer’s intimate world as she juggles first-time motherhood, resumes her tour and copes with the fallout of her split from husband Wissam Al Mana.

“Janet has been fiercely private about her life in the past but feels the need to keep her fans in the loop with what life has been like since she went into hiatus 10 years ago,” a source told The Sun.

“The show will run as a 10-part documentary and will feature recording sessions in the studio, co-parenting her child with Wissam and preparing for the European and Asian legs of her tour.

“Netflix are negotiating a big sum for the rights to the show as they expect it to perform well.”

The news comes months after the pop icon and her estranged husband, billionaire Qatari businessman Wissam, welcomed their son Eissa into the world. However, the couple separated shortly after, following five years of marriage, amid reports of his controlling behavior.

Janet confirmed the split via a video message posted on social media at the beginning of May and also revealed she’ll be resuming the postponed Unbreakable World Tour, which has now been renamed the State of the World Tour.

“I’m so excited, you guys, so excited,” she gushed. “It’s not about politics, it’s about people, the world, relationships and just love… I cannot wait to see you on stage. September 7th.”

UPDATE: CARMELO HAS A BABY ON THE WAY WITH A STRIPPER; LALA PISSED BEYOND MEANS!

Carmelo Anthony was messing around with a woman who now claims she’s pregnant with his baby — and as you can imagine, his wife, La La, is pissed … TMZ Sports has learned.

Multiple sources tell us … the other woman often works at a gentlemen’s club in NYC, and we’re told she’s claiming to be 6 and a half months pregnant with Melo’s child.

We’re also told she has made it clear to Melo she expects him to kick in for medical expenses and other baby related costs.

Sources close to both Melo and La La are telling us the marriage has been rocky for a while — and while the pregnancy wasn’t the tipping point, it certainly didn’t help.

So far, neither side has filed divorce papers but we’re told there’s virtually zero chance of a reconciliation.

KIM KARDASHIAN FELT A SENSE OF RESPONSIBILITY FOR KANYE WEST BREAKDOWN

Kim Kardashian felt a “sense of responsibility” for husband Kanye West’s breakdown because she had relied on him so much following her robbery ordeal.

The reality TV star was bound, gagged, and held at gunpoint in October when a group of masked men raided her hotel suite in Paris, France, and stole millions of dollars’ worth of jewelry and electronics.

She took time out of the spotlight and was due to return to the public eye at a New York event to honor her late father Robert Kardashian in November but she ended up pulling out after she learned her husband had been hospitalized following a “psychiatric emergency”.

In Sunday night’s episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kim became emotional when she received a call from one of Kanye’s friends. She later told her mother Kris and sister Kourtney that Kanye was crying on the phone to her but wouldn’t tell her what was wrong.

Kim flew back to Los Angeles to be with Kanye and when her family returned home, she confessed she felt responsible as she had been relying on him so much following the robbery.

“This is forcing him just to take much needed time off, which I think he just really needs…and I think that that will be just really good for him,” she explained. “But I feel a sense of responsibility just with the pressure of taking care of everything. Even after the robbery and everything it’s just I’ve been staying home and I’ve been looking to him to just take care of everything while I stay home.”

She said she was “emotionally drained and exhausted” and “so tired” she was unable to function, but she was certain everything would be alright. She also told sister Khloe, “Kanye was really cute, he was like, ‘So this what for better or for worse means.’”

The rapper has kept a relatively low profile since his hospitalization and the couple seem to be stronger than ever. Kim shared a family portrait with their children North, three, and Saint, 16 months, over the weekend, as well as another snap of Kanye dressed up as the Easter Bunny

UPDATE: MARY J BLIGE TWITTER WAS HACKED

Singer Mary J. Blige is denying reports she slammed her estranged husband Kendu Isaacs on Twitter, insisting she was hacked.
On Sunday a message displaying her alleged contempt for Isaacs appeared on the social media site.

“F**k Kendu Isaacs I f**king hate him and his whole family,” it reportedlyread. “I unfollowed him on IG (Instagram) & ALL of my fans need 2 (sic)…”

The posting has since been deleted and the 46-year-old reveals she was not the one responsible for it.
“Hey guys. I was hacked with that message about Kendu,” she writes. “I dont hate him & his family. Nor do I wish death on him. I just want this 2 B (sic) over.”

The No More Drama hitmaker filed legal papers to end her 12-year marriage in July, and the estranged couple has been fighting over his request for almost $130,000 -a-month in spousal support ever since.

Last year, Mary admitted the Kendu she married is a completely different person to the man she is now battling in court and she recently revealed she began to re-evaluate the marriage when Kendu began to criticize her over unimportant matters.

“The overwhelming disrespect (he was showing me was too much),” she told Power 105.1’s Angie Martinez last month. “You’re too familiar. You’re way too familiar and you’re disrespecting me and I know… I can sense that I’m not what you want anymore, because now you’re starting to throw questions around like, ‘OK, why you don’t cook?’ ‘Well, I haven’t been cooking’. ‘Why you don’t wear your hair like this?’ ‘I never wore my hair like this before’. ‘What’s up with you?’ You know?”

MARIAH CAREY PUTTING HEART AND SOUL INTO HER NEW ALBUM

Mariah Carey has promised to drop a new album in 2017 after committing to a new deal with Epic Records.

Mariah’s Butterfly MC Records first inked a deal with the Sony Music Entertainment label run by L.A. Reid in 2015, but rumors began to swirl earlier this year that the partnership was in trouble.

The superstar has now put gossip she was on the verge of being dropped to bed, by forging ahead with a fresh contract with Epic, which includes a new album due out before the year end.

“I am putting my heart and soul into making more new music. I am so thrilled for this next chapter and to continue working with, and for, everyone that I love,” Mariah said in a statement, reports Variety.

Reid also shared his joy at the renewed partnership. The music mogul had previously worked with the singer on her 2005 hit album The Emancipation of Mimi, when they were both at Universal.

“To continue working with Mariah Carey at Epic has been another rewarding chapter of my career.” he stated. “Mariah’s incomparable talents as a singer, with her vocal range that is nothing short of legendary, are matched by her brilliance as a songwriter, producer, and performer par excellence. Mariah’s chart records have established her enduring place in music history, a position that is cherished and supported by her loyal fans worldwide. I look forward to building upon all of Mariah’s success for years to come.”

Mariah’s most recent album, 2014’s Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse, only managed to hit the top spot in the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, but failed to repeat her previous chart success elsewhere.
She’s also had a string of well-publicized difficulties in recent months, including a failed engagement to billionaire businessman James Packer, a widely-ridiculed reality TV series and a disastrous performance when her appearance at Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve was hit with technical troubles.
On Monday it was reported by several news outlets that she’d split with her toy boy lover Bryan Tanaka.

MARIAH CAREY AND BRYAN SPLIT AFTER 5 MONTHS?!

Mariah Carey has reportedly split from her backing dancer boyfriend Bryan Tanaka.

The pop diva went public with her romance with her new beau, who worked as a dancer on The Sweet Sweet Fantasy Tour in 2016, by posing for amorous pictures with him on a beach in Hawaii in November.

They recently celebrated Mariah’s birthday in Mexico at the end of March, but they reportedly haven’t seen or spoken to each other since that trip and have now parted ways.

Sources tell TMZ.com Bryan was jealous over Mariah’s friendly relationship with her ex-husband Nick Cannon, the father of her five-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe. The former couple, who split in 2014 after six years of marriage, regularly hang out together with the children, going to dinner, parties and even on vacation together. Their closeness reportedly made Bryan mad and he would get his revenge by flirting with other women in front of Mariah.

The “last straw” is said to have been the Kids’ Choice Awards last month, when Mariah, Nick and the twins made a family appearance, complete with coordinating outfits on the orange carpet, which the 33-year-old reportedly felt “disrespected” by.
As for Mariah, she apparently got fed up of footing Bryan’s bills and felt he just wanted to get famous from their relationship.

The dancer made his feelings about the singer known on her E! reality show Mariah’s World, despite her being engaged to Australian billionaire James Packer at the time.

In October, her representative confirmed Mariah had not seen Packer since they had a row in Greece in September16). Mariah declared the relationship was not working and removed her engagement ring during the Mariah’s World finale, which aired in January.
