    Kevin Hart Sued By Model for $60 Million Over 2017 Sex Tape

    A woman who appeared in a 2017 sex tape with Kevin Hart is suing the comedian and others for $60 million.

    According to a documents obtained by E! News, 28-year-old model Montia Sabagg claims she was secretly recorded having consensual intercourse with Hart in a Las Vegas hotel room. In the 38-page complaint, Sabagg accuses Hart, Jonathan “JT” Jackson, the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas and other related companies of intentional inflection of emotional distress, violations of privacy and negligence.

    Sabagg claims in the suit that she “had no knowledge that the intimate activity” depicted in the video of her and Hart “was being recorded.” The video, which according to the suit showed Sabagg “naked from the waste down and engaged in private, consensual sexual relations with Hart,” was published online in Sept. 2017.

    At the time, Hart addressed the incident publicly and claimed he was being extorted. Soon thereafter, Sabagg held a press conference alongside celebrity attorney Lisa Bloom to deny the extortion accusations.

    Now two years later, Sabagg is accusing Hart of allowing his friend, JT Jackson, to “set up a hidden video recording device” in the hotel room and record their sexual relations. The lawsuit states that Hart “conspired” with Jackson “for the purpose of obtaining tremendous financial benefit for himself” by drumming up publicity for Hart’s Irresponsible Tour.

    Additionally, the lawsuit states Hart wanted to attract “additional publicity and media attention” through the video and “increase his overall pop culture status.”

    In 2018, the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office charged Jackson with attempted extortion and extortion by threatening letter. Prosecutors said Jackson attempted to sell the tape to various celebrity news websites after Hart refused to pay Jackson the undisclosed amount of money he had requested. He plead not guilty to the charges. The case is still ongoing.

    When news of the sex tape became public, Hart took to social media with an apology for his wife, Eniko Hart, and kids.

    “I’m at a place in my life where I feel like I have a target on my back and because of that, I should make smart decisions. And recently, I didn’t,” he said. “You know, I’m not perfect. I’m not going to sit up here and say that I am or claim to be in any way shape or form.”

    Kevin continued, “I made a bad error in judgment and I put myself in a bad environment where only bad things can happen and they did. And in doing that, I know that I’m going to hurt the people closest to me, who’ve I talked to and apologized to, that would be my wife and my kids.”

    Beyoncé’s Making the Gift Special Reveals Intimate Family Moments

    Beyoncé‘s self-described love letter to Africa just took on a whole new meaning.

    The world-famous performer’s latest documentary special, which aired tonight on ABC and is titled Making the Gift, offered a behind-the-scenes look into the creation of her recent The Lion King: The Gift album.

    In it, cameras first follow Bey, Jay-Z and their children, Blue Ivy CarterRumi Carter and Sir Carter on a trip to Africa. As she described, “Visiting countries in Africa, it’s always an emotional experience for me. It feels like I’m making peace with a part of me that’s yearning for my ancestral connection. I was blessed to be able to relive some of the experiences that I’ve been very fortunate to have over the years with my entire family.”

    And let’s be honest, those never-before-seen shots of the twins (who are walking and talking now!) were enough to set the Bey Hive ablaze with excitement.

    Blue even got a chance to show off her singing chops while recording “Brown Skin Girl,” and yes, the 7-year-old instantly became a worldwide trending topic on Twitter.

    And on the topic of motherhood, Bey had this to say: “When you’re a mother, there’s a love that you experience with your kids that’s deeper than anything you can imagine. The love is beyond Earth and beyond time and space, and it’s a connection that will be constant.”

    Subsequent scenes see Beyoncé and the album’s many songwriters and producers working together to bring their vision to life.

    The Gift has been so much more than a celebration of the film The Lion King,” she shared. “To be able to work on a film that is so massive, so iconic, and to also represent African people and African Americans in a positive light is a blessing for me.”

    The Lion King: The Gift is available to stream and download now.

    Big Boi Doesn’t Regret His NFL Super Bowl Performance

    Big Boi can think for himself.

    Travis Scott, Maroon 5 and Big Boi were this year’s Super Bowl headliners sparking quite the controversy among many hip hop heads considering the issues with the NFL and Colin Kaepernick. While each act clearly had their reasons for the move, Big Boi recently spoke out defending his choice to work with the NFL on his recent visit to Ebro in the Morning. 

    In the clip below, Big Boi explains how people who protest against the NFL do it in a selective, unauthentic manner. You’ll have people who want to boycott the games yet make bets and play fantasy football.

    “How you going to protest, and you’re still participating?” Big Boi asked. “If Julian Edelman was the only motherfucker out there running routes, and it was no black players on the field, ain’t no way in hell I would’ve performed at the Super Bowl. But the city was there, everybody was there. You can’t just pick and choose and be selective. You’re either all in or you’re all out … I’mma think for myself and I’mma do what I know what I wanna do. And do what’s right for me and my people.”

    He added: “You can’t [be] selective and do a protest when it’s convenient for you.”

    Megan Thee Stallion Announces Roc Nation Deal With Jay-Z Photo

    Congratulations to Megan Thee Stallion!

    Imagine what it must feel like to be Megan Thee Stallion right now. Each new day brings serious blessings her way and perhaps the largest one has just fallen into her lap. Young Tina Snow has been levelling up all year and her fans are completely in love with everything she represents. First, she was promoting Hot Girl Summer, telling all her supporters to just go out and live their best lives. Now, she’s back on her school grind so it’s officially Hot Nerd Fall. As she completes her degree though, you better believe she’s pulling overtime in the studio and Roc Nation is there to help her out.

    Announcing her new deal on Twitter, Megan Thee Stallion posted up with the legendary Jay-Z to tell everybody that she is officially a member of Roc Nation. Before today, the superstar rapper was signed to 300 Entertainment but she’s expanding her brand, bringing on Roc Nation to help guide her even further.

    This move shouldn’t be surprising to anybody who has been keeping track of Meg’s moves. The H-Town Hottie is absolutely obsessed with Beyoncé so the fact that she would want to get close to her husband makes total sense. She was also spotted with Hov at a Puma event a few weeks ago so maybe they began negotiating then.

    Congratulations to Megan Thee Stallion, who just keeps proving her haters wrong.

    Antonio Brown To Be Investigated In Pennsylvania For Alleged Assault

    Brown’s troubles are now expanding off the field.

    Antonio Brown was having himself an interesting weekend after being released by the Oakland Raiders and immediately getting picked up by the New England Patriots. It seemed as though things had quieted down for Brown until last night when he was accused of rape by his former trainer, Britney Taylor. The allegations sent shockwaves throughout the NFL and had people questioning the Patriots decision to sign him. According to Taylor, there were three separate assaults, one of which happened in 2017 while he was a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers.According to Andy Sheehan of KDKA-TV, the Allegheny County, Pennsylvania District Attorney is currently investigating one of the three alleged incidents. As reported by Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio, they are only investigating one of the alleged assaults because this particular one allegedly went down in Pennsylvania.

    “[Stephen A.] Zappala’s office would have jurisdiction over only one of the three specific incidents detailed in the civil complaint,” Florio wrote. “Britney Taylor alleges that, in early June 2017 while she was in the bathroom of his Pittsburgh residence, ‘Brown walked in with his penis exposed’ and then ‘grabbed and kissed her without her consent.'”

    As of right now, Brown is still on the Patriots roster although the league is thinking about adding him to the exempt list which would make him ineligible for the team’s game on Sunday against the Miami Dolphins.

    While the news arrives ahead of the Pats’ matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers–AB’s former squad–on Sunday, Brown will not be suiting up just yet as his deal does not officially go into effect until Monday.

    This new development seems to mark the end of a rocky period in time as Brown’s relationship with the Raiders organization hung on by a thread what with a series of bizarre headlines from frostbitten feet to HelmetGate. Things would end with the team opting to release Brown, giving him the opening to join in on what the Patriots have going on this season.

    Forever 21 Responds To Ariana Grande’s $10 Million Lawsuit

    Forever 21 has responded to the lawsuit.

    Ariana Grande is not going to let Forever 21 off the hook for using, what she feels, is her likeness to promote their clothing. After announcing a $10 million lawsuit against the fast-fashion brand earlier this week, the company has responded.

    In an exclusive statement made to Today Style, Forever 21 addressed the lawsuit saying, “Forever 21 does not comment on pending litigation as per company policy. That said, while we dispute the allegations, we are huge supporters of Ariana Grande and have worked with her licensing company over the past two years. We are hopeful that we will find a mutually agreeable resolution and can continue to work together in the future.”

    Court documents suggest that Forever 21 negotiated with Grande for an endorsement deal last year, but the deal broke down after Grande was not offered an amount she felt was sufficient “for an artist of her stature.” Grande’s camp alleges that the look-alike model in question was hired after Grande turned down the company. The official complaint from Grande’s team reads, “The campaign capitalized on the concurrent success of Ms. Grande’s album Thank U, Next by publishing at least 30 unauthorized images and videos misappropriating Ms. Grande’s name, image, likeness, and music in order to create the false perception of her endorsement.”

    You can find pictures comparing both Grande and the model at Today Style and further details about the lawsuit here.

    50 Cent Issues Perfect Response To Hater Who Threatens To Cancel Him

    Everybody was talking about the Power theme song last week. “Big Rich Town” has been one of the best show openers in modern television history and Joe’s voice fits perfectly on the hook. Of course, 50 Cent brings his own brand of flavor to the track as well. When the new season of the program premiered in late August, social media went absolutely nuts because the original tune had been altered. Instead of Joe, Trey Songz was on the hook. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, to be honest. Look, we all love Trey. What’s not to love about him? He’s extremely talented and has a freaking incredible voice. But you don’t fix something that’s ain’t broke. Speaking on the controversy, 50 Cent toyed with fans by saying he might not change the theme back after all and when someone threatened to cancel him because of it, he went in.

    When a hater chimed in in the comments, saying that she’s about to cancel the New York tycoon, Fif clapped back by telling her that she doesn’t even have the capacity to do so. “How about we just cancel you,” asked the fan. Fiddy hit back: “you don’t even got cable Lil bitch. LOL.”

    Leave it to 50 Cent to come through with the perfect response to this type of slander. Do you want him to change the theme back or are you okay with the new one?

    Jeezy & GF Jeannie Mai Make Their Relationship Instagram Official

    Jeezy & Jeannie Mai are lookin’ all boo’d up for cuffing season.

    Hot Girl Summer has passed and inevitably, we’re transitioning into cuffing season. Jeezy was already two steps ahead of everyone, apparently. Over the past few weeks, there’s been a lot of talk surrounding Jeezy and his girl, The Real talk show host, Jeannie Mai. Although they already spoke about their relationship publicly, they’ve made it official by millennials standards.It’s not really official until it’s Instagram official, right? Well, Jeezy and Jeannie Mai have made it official on Instagram that they are indeed a couple. The two took to their respective pages to post some cute boo’d up picture with one another. Jeezy’s post kept it as G as possible, even with a #WCW hashtag, as the two rocked a mean mug. Her post captured their pearly whites as they posted up on the beach, living their best lives.

    The two have previously spoken about their relationship in the past, although they never confirmed that they’re an item. Earlier this year, Jeannie Mai confirmed that they were seeing each other at the time but she did admit that the Trap Or Die rapper was very special to her. Jeezy essentially confirmed the rumors although he wasn’t clear about it… at all.

    “Life is good. That’s all I can tell you,” he told ET. “Life is great. Life is amazing… She’s amazing too, by the way.”
