Did Lil Wayne really ink a deal with Jay Z’s Roc Nation? Find out what he said about it, plus get into Kendrick Lamar’s first week album sales for DAMN inside…
Lil Wayne had everyone’s tongue wagging when he hinted at signing with Roc Nation back in January and again earlier this month. During a concert in Pennsylvania on April 10th, Weezy announced to the crowd:
“Is it cool if I just say it? It’s the Roc. You know I’m apart of that team now,” then he threw up the Roc’s diamond symbol.
So is the Young Money honcho a Roc Nation artist now?
He clears up the rumors during a sitdown with his friend/”Undisputed” host Skip Bayless that streamed live via Facebook. While an official deal hasn’t been worked out just yet, Weezy said Hov has become a good friend who’s trying to help him any way possible.
“Jay is just a good guy,” he told Skip. “It was nothing but a simple thing. Friend to friend, I just want to help you. Simply. That’s all it was. I just want to help you, man, in any way I can. Right now, he’s just gonna help me in any way he can.”
The “Lollipop” rapper is still under contract with Cash Money, but he’s working to have that resolved as quickly as possible, as we all know.
“We’re still working on that. That’s a situation. But Jay is just a good guy and he just wants to help me. That’s it. He’s gonna be helping me.”
The New Orleans native also shared an interesting tidbit about his mother and Birdman. They went to school together! Who knew?
“Also, she went to school with Baby, who became my boss. She went to school with him so it was kind of like, ‘You’re talking about that guy, my friend from school? You’re gonna be with him and y’all gon’ be superstars? Yeah right. You’re gonna go to school.’ … That’s the best part about it, that it actually came true, and that I was actually able to show her more than she ever thought she’d see.”
Weezy also talked about Aaron Hernandez’s suicide, the current state of Hip Hop, Prince’s death and more.
Peep the full interview below:
Wayne also sat down with Skip, Shannon Sharpe and Joy Taylor to discuss Dez Bryant’s comments about race relations. Check it below:
In music news...
Kendrick Lamar’s album sales are DAMN good. Even better than Drake’s More Life.
K. Dot’s DAMN album sold 610,000 copies it’s first week. And guess what? Those sales made the album the highest selling first week of the year, thus far. Nice! Drizzy’s More Life debuted with 505,000 units.
This week’s album sales are a career high for K.Dot, which beat the first week of his 2015 album To Pimp A Butterfly. Congrats Kendrick!
Oh, and he’s not releasing any new music just yet, despite what the rumor mill is claiming:
KenFolk. ThankU 4 the desire of always anticipating new music of my own. None is coming. My work will be in our future TDE dates tho. #DAMN

K. Michelle went savage on Loni Love and Angela Yee via Twitter after the ladies mentioned her on a recent episode of “The Real.” Read how it all went down inside…
K. Michelle is known for poppin’ off on anyone who pisses her off, so it was no surprise that she was going savage via Twitter the other day.
This time, she was unleashed a dragging on “The Real” co-host Loni Love and radio personality Angela Yee (who was guest-hosting). Angela was asked about the craziest celebrity interview she conducted on “The Breakfast Club” and they mentioned a bizarre interview with K.

We’ve got flicks of Zoe Kravitz and Denzel Washington on the sets of their new projects. This wiggery...
Zoe Kravitz is back to work on her new chick flick, Rough Night.
The YBF chick is hardly recognizable as her character Blair in the upcoming comedy. The film will follow a group of college girlfriends who go on a girls’ getaway to celebrate one of their friends getting married. The problem? They end up killing a male stripper!
Yesterday, Zoe shot scenes with her co-star IIana Glazer at JFK Airport in NYC. And whatever IIana was saying had her laughing uncontrollably.
Totally different look from Zoe’s usual long braids.
Actresses Scarlett Johansson (who plays the bride-to-be), Jillian Bell, and Kate McKinnon round out the cast. These ladies will be getting into all types of trouble that will include, cocaine (yikes!), alcohol and jet skis. Definitely sounds like an adventure for sure!
Rough Night hits theaters June 16th.
On another movie set...
Following his blockbuster FENCES, Denzel Washington is back to work on his next film. It’s a crime drama titled Inner City.
The iconic actor was decked out in an afro and fake teeth for the first day of filming the new movie in L.A.
Inner City is a dramatic thriller set in the underbelly of the overburdened Los Angeles criminal court system, according to IMDB. Denzel stars as Roman Israel, a driven, idealistic defense attorney who, through a tumultuous series of events, finds himself in a crisis that leads to extreme action.
Like father, like son!
Will Smith and his son Jaden Smith (who recently cut off his dreadlocks) were spotted on the set of their new fil, Life In A Year. Both father and son are looking good.
The drama follows a 17-year-old who finds out that his girlfriend is dying, so he sets out to give her an entire life in the last year she has left. Nia Long and Terrence Howard are also starring in the flick.

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon surely take co-parenting to another level. Go inside to peep pics of the former married couple doing family dinner night and bedtime together with their twins inside…
It was family night for Mariah Carey, Nick Cannon and their twins, Roc and Roe last night.
The former married couple and their kiddies enjoyed a family dinner at Mr. Chow in Beverly Hills. After dinner, they trekked it to PinkBerry for dessert. Yum.
Earlier this month, Mariah split from her boy toy Bryan Tanaka. It was rumored Bryan felt the Grammy Award winner was “disrespectful” towards him when it came to “co-parenting” with her ex-husband. It was also reported he was jealous of their relationship.
Since calling it quits in 2014, Mariah and Nick have always spent time together with their kids, even when she was with her billionaire ex-fiancé James Packer. Maybe Bryan couldn’t stand how close they are.
We mean, they are pretty close…
The Elusive Chanteuse singer posted up the intimate picture above with the caption, "#bedtimestories #demkids #family @nickcannon"
Do we think they're getting back together? No. At least, not now.

The ladies were spotted leaving Bristol Farms in Beverly Hills after a grocery shopping run yesterday. Hmm…preparing for a party perhaps? Or a mini private DC reunion?
The day before...
The gorgeous author popped up at the 2017 Women's Guild Cedars-Sinai Annual Spring Luncheon held at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel looking like a million bucks. The “Whoa Baby!” author served up pink and green fabness at the event.
Yep, she's STILL slaying the hell out of this promo tour.
Making her way down the carpet, she ran into actress Jessica Lowndes for a few flicks.

Earlier in the day...
Kellz also made a stop by "Hollywood Today Live" to promote her book. The hosts surprised her with Starbucks' new unicorn flavored frappuccino. See Kellz's reaction below:
She also dished on the new music she has in store for her fans:
A few days ago...
The fab mom got up close and personal with fans at a book signing for her new book:
She thanked her friend Yael Cohen Braun for hosting the event captioning on Instagram, "This incredible woman did me the honor of hosting my book signing/conversation last night! @yael thank you for being there and sharing you intelligence, humor, wit, and beauty with us all! I adore you! XO #motherluckerproud!"
After the event, Kelly met up with Beyonce and Michelle Williams in L.A.:

We have updates surrounding the alleged suicide of former NFL player Aaron Hernandez. Find out why his fiancée is suing the Department of Corrections and why the New England Patriots may still owe Aaron’s estate $15 million inside…
Former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez reportedly committed suicide in his jail cell early Wednesday morning (April 19th). Prison guards claim they found Aaron hanging from a bed sheet in his cell.
But, Aaron’s fiancée Shayanna Jenkins and his attorney Jose Baez don’t believe he took his own life. They feel he may have been murdered. Aaron’s attorney has launched an investigation into his death to prove he was killed by either fellow inmates or prison officials.
Reportedly, Shayanna is suing the Department of Corrections to ensure they preserve every single piece of evidence that could possibly prove he didn't kill himself. Shayanna, who is the mother of Aaron’s 4-year-old daughter Avielle, filed paperwork asking a superior court judge to prevent state officials from destroying video recordings, physical evidence and prison records connected to Aaron’s death, according to TMZ.
A judge is set to hear the case today (April 21st).
According to CBS Sports:
Hernandez was serving a life sentence for the slaying of Odin Lloyd without the possibility of parole. He was found guilty for only one of the eight counts Friday: illegal possession of a firearm.
As a result, he was sentenced to an additional four to five years in prison. Hernandez was found not guilty of the remaining seven counts. He was also accused of first-degree murder, witness intimidation and shooting a witness -- Alexander Bradley -- in the face in an attempt to silence him.
Aaron’s death was ruled a suicide by the medical examiner. Three handwritten suicide notes were found in his cell next to a Bible that was open to John 3:16. It’s reported the notes were addressed to fiancee and their daughter Shayanna.
The third, according to a Daily Mail exclusive which has yet to be confirmed by officials, was written out to his alleged lover inside the prison.
Although the existence of the notes was made public by prison officials Thursday, the Daily Mail is citing a "source close to the investigation" that one note was penned to a gay lover at the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley, Mass.
A source tells the Daily Mail that Aaron was planning his suicide for weeks leading up to his death. They claim the former NFL star had given away all of his personal belongings to other inmates.
The Worcester District Attorney's Office issued a statement regarding Aaron’s death saying, "Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Henry N. Nields performed an autopsy on Mr. Hernandez on Wednesday and concluded today that the manner of death was suicide and the cause asphyxia by hanging."
"There were no signs of a struggle, and investigators determined that Mr. Hernandez was alone at the time of the hanging."
It’s reported Aaron jammed cardboard into the door tracks of his cell to keep the guards from getting into his cell.
Now, there’s speculation into why the former New England Patriot would have killed himself. One theory is that he did it so his daughter would be taken care of.
Under Massachusetts law, Aaron’s estate could still get the remaining $15 million from his contract with the NFL team because he died while in the process of appealing his 2014 conviction for the murder of Odin Lloyd.
ProFootballTalk breaks it down:
Hernandez was still in the process of appealing his 2014 conviction of murdering Odin Lloyd, which means a legal principle dating back to English common law called “abatement ab initio” applies to his case. “Ab initio” translates to “from the beginning” and chief legal counsel to the Massachusetts Bar Association Michael Healy told the Boston Globe that the principle reverts a case to its start if the convicted party dies before the appeals process has concluded.
Healy said that civil proceedings in other cases involving the death of the convicted party were complicated because evidence established in the criminal trial cannot be used to make the civil case. “Unfortunately, in the Odin Lloyd matter, for the family, there won’t be any real closure,” Healy said. “Aaron Hernandez will go to his death an innocent man.”
This means Lloyd’s family would not be able to use evidence from the criminal trial in a lawsuit against Aaron’s estate for civil damages.

Mary J. Blige said "Nah Kendu" in response to his outrageous spousal support request. And she exposed him for allegedly shelling out money to his GIRLFRIEND. Deets inside...
Remember that $110,000/month Kendu Isaacs lost his mind and filed for from Mary J. Blige? Well Mary is responding, and exposing him for jacking $420,000 of her money....for his new girlfriend!
Mary filed new docs in court that say Kendu spent nearly half a million dollars on "travel charges" as her manager. But...Mary wasn't on these alleged trips. In her docs, she says those charges were not business related and she was never included. Oh, and she says he spent that cash on his new bae.
TMZ states Mary said in the docs she will not be supporting his kids like he requested and also says their house is underwater by millions:
As we've reported ... Martin is asking for more than $110k per month in spousal support, but Mary says that's outrageous. She says, "I am not responsible for supporting [Martin's] parents and his children from another relationship which he lists as ongoing monthly expenses."
Plus, Mary says there's no money left for handouts, anyway. In the docs, she says their estate is "underwater" ... to the tune of $10 million. As she put it, she has all the burden of covering their expenses, while Martin "contributes absolutely nothing."
Mary is keeping it moving on her tour.
Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian do date night in L.A. following Rob’s sister Kim Kardashian West questions Chyna’s motives. Meanwhile, Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are back at the gym in Miami. Flicks inside…
Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian make their first public appearance together after reuniting a few weeks ago. The off-again, on-again couple went on a dinner date at LA’s Tao restaurant last night.
Guess they’re trying to get this thing right.
Chy pulled out some purple wiggery for their night out, rocking an all white ensemble, a denim jacket and sneakers. Rob was in his usual dark clothes and baseball cap for the outing. It’s reported Dream Kardashian’s parents stepped out of the venue around 1:20 in the morning.
In a sneak peek for next week’s episode of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians,” Rob's sister Kim Kardashian West questions Chyna’s motives in her relationship with her brother.
“I’ve always been super cool with her. I have a different relationship [with her] that what you guys [Kardashian sisters] have and what Kylie has, and I always hear her out. But like, just seeing the motives is what’s hurtful,” Kim said.
“I’ve always felt like that them as a couple just isn’t that healthy, and I think they know that too. Rob can be really irrational and he just has to learn to really take responsibility for himself and not blame it on Chyna. It’s so clear what this relationship is. They’re just not meant to be with each other.”
Sort of like how Kim and Kris Humphries weren't meant for each other? Or...
Still no word on whether Chyna & Rob's engagement is back on.
In another coupledom spotting....
With bodies like Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez's it's no surprise to see these two back in the gym together. Toting a Birkin bag as a gym bag, JLo was all smiles as she made her way to the entrance, greeting her trainer with a hug.
During an appearance on “The View” last month, the retired MLB player gushed about his relationship with the “Shades of Blue” starlet saying, “It’s obvious. We’ve been having a great time. She’s an amazing, amazing girl. One of the smartest human beings I’ve ever met and also an incredible mother.”
Speaking of being a mother, the couple brought their families together over the Easter holiday. They jetted to the Dominican Republic where JLo was set to perform. And get this, her ex-husband Marc Anthony was also tapped to perform with her.
After the show, JLo, Alex and Marc were spotted partying it up together on the dance floor. Nice. Sounds like things are getting serious between the two.
By the way, JLo’s “Word of Dance” premieres May 30th at 10/9c on NBC.

A DNA test proved Flo Rida is the father, but he’s reportedly still not paying child support. The child’s mother wants him to pay up. Details inside….
Is Flo Rida a deadbeat dad? A woman in NYC believes so, and she’s taking him to court to prove it.
Apparently, the “My House” rapper, whose real name is Tramar Lillard, took a DNA test for a 7-month-old baby boy in December 2016 and it came out that he IS the father. The court documents explained she and the 37-year-old rapper started hooking up in December 2015 and their situationship lasted until mid-January 2016
But, according to the boy’s mom Alexis Adams, Flo Rida hasn’t acknowledged the child is his and he hasn’t paid a dime in support of his son.
Alexis’ son, Zohar Paxton, reportedly has some medical issues and she needs help with his medical expenses. TMZ reports the child has hydrocephalus, which means there’s some build-up of fluid in the cavities of his brain. Poor thing.
This isn’t the first time Flo Rida has found himself caught up in this type of situation. Back in 2014, a woman named Natasha Georgette Williams sued him for refusing to pay child support AFTER a DNA test proved the child was his. Hmph.
Sighs to it all.
Tiny Harris is now publicly speaking out to shed some light on the divorce drama between herself and her estranged husband T.I.
Hear what she had to say about it all inside…
T.I. told his side about the divorce drama, now his estranged wife Tiny Harris is ready to share her side.
Tiny is currently in NYC making press rounds with her daughter Zonnique Pullins, who just dropped a new EP. And, of course, folks are asking her about the drama between herself and her husband T.I.
The Xscape member made it clear she’s unbothered by Tip’s alleged side chick Bernice Burgos via social media. And she’s still unbothered by her. Today, she appeared on the “Wendy Williams Show” and told the daytime talk show that Bernice is a non-factor in her pending divorce. She said she and Tip were already going through some issues BEFORE Bernice jumped into the picture. Tiny said Bernice needs to learn her “place” and if she’s going to be the side chick then she needs to keep QUIET.
Also, being on reality TV has also caused some strain in their relationship. Wendy kept asking her if they had manufactored the drama to save their reality show and Tiny said that's so not true.
As for her relationship with boxer Floyd Mayweather, she said she and Floyd are JUST friends. The video of her and Floyd dancing at Mariah Carey’s Halloween party wasn’t what it seemed.
“I wasn’t up on him Wendy. We’re friends and there’s never been anything extra between us."
Then she added, “Honestly, if he [T.I.] was doing the right thing then I wouldn’t have been at Mariah’s party.”
The R&B singer also addressed her mother poppin’ off on her friend Tamar Braxton on social media, the Xscape reuniting and going on tour, and managing her daughter Zonnique’s music career on her new record label.
Peep the clip below:
Mrs. Harris also sat down to chop it up on ESSENCE’s “Yes Girl” podcast where she addressed Tip’s “distraction” comment. You’ll recall, Tip told Power 105’s Angie Martinez that his marriage to Tiny was a “distraction” from building his empire.
Well, here’s what she had to say about that:
“I had to…like how could he just …like, a distraction?” she said.
“He cannot understand what in the world did he say that wasn’t right…like, ‘I don’t get it. I’m like, ‘You don’t get it?’ [He said] ‘Like, I don’t get it. I didn’t say anything bad about you,” Tiny explained. “And I’m like, ‘That doesn’t make sense…That’s a cop out, pretty much. Like you’re too old for that. A distraction?! Boy, you’ve been married for seven years going on now, and you’ve been in this relationship for 15 years now. Okay?”
“I don’t see much of a difference from being married from when we wasn’t married,” she continued. “What changed so much?”
So, is it really over this time?
“I cannot say," said Tiny. "I think it’s close to it.”
Take a listen to her full interview below:

Fresh from vacationing on a yacht with Oprah, his wife Michelle Obama and others in Tahiti, former President Barack Obama whipped out a suit to attend funeral services for Steelers’ owner Dan Rooney on Tuesday.
The NFL owner passed away at the age of 84 after a brief illness. He was laid to rest during a private ceremony held at St. Paul Cathedral in Pittsburgh.
Dan Rooney embodied everything I was raised to believe being Irish meant – generosity, decency, warmth, dignity & a truly genuine spirit.

Adrien Broner has found himself in more hot water. Police arrested him after pulling him over in a SUV riddled with bullets. Get the latest inside…
Adrien Broner just keeps getting wrapped up in some foolishness.
Early this morning, the professional boxer was arrested in Cincinnati on an open OVI warrant.
According to TMZ, Broner was pulled over by Covington police officers while driving a white SUV. Apparently, the Chevy Suburban was involved in a shoot out earlier as it was covered in bullet holes, approximately eight shots hit the vehicle. When police pulled him over, Adrien was trying to cross into Kentucky. No word on where he was headed.
The 27-year-old Cincinnati native was not injured. He told police an unidentified suspect followed as he left an area bar and then fired several shots at the vehicle he was driving. Cops told TMZ they did find evidence of a shooting at the alleged crime scene, including several shell casings.
His arrest stemmed from failure to appear in court from a previous arrest in 2014 for disorderly conduct and alcohol intoxication. He was booked in the wee hours of the morning and was released hours later on a $503 bond.
He’s set to appear in court on April 27th for today’s arrest.
This brother can’t seem to stay out of trouble. SMH.
