Telling someone out of frame to get Lifetime on the phone, Raz B says he’s ready to film “Surviving Chris Stokes.” For years, fans have wanted an unadulterated account of Chris Stokes atrocities. Now, Raz B says he’s finally ready to talk.

Bad Blood

As the Millennium Tour which features B2K was announced, Raz B’s cousin Chris Stokes went to Twitter to deny accusations from 2007. Calling it “negativity I will never play into,” Stokes insisted he never hurt any member of B2K and implored followers to buy tickets to the show.

The former manager of B2K was outed by Raz B in 2007 for the alleged sexual assaults of multiple people he was managing at the time. In a video created by Raz B and his older brother Ricardo, Raz states that Stokes assaulted him at the ages of 11 and 12. He also alleged Stokes forced the members of B2K to shower together. Stokes was also accused of assaulting Marques Houston. At the time of the accusation, Stokes used his marriage to Omarion’s aunt and four children as a shield to defend against rumors of homosexuality.

Stokes also attempted to shrug off the accusations as attempts to extort him for money since Raz B “had no money other than the financial support I gave them.” He continued, “And so now, as you seen on the videos, if you did watch them, he’s saying his brother is ready to commit suicide. So at this point, they felt they could just do whatever they feel it would take to get the money.” However, most cutting was Omarion’s statement when asked if Raz B was telling the truth.

“I want to be on the record as saying that ‘Raz-B’ Thornton and Ricardo Thornton are lying regarding Chris Stokes. Chris is a father figure to myself and many others in the industry. He’s guided us, helped raise us and is nothing more than an inspiration and someone I respect and look up to.”

Complicated Relationships

At the time of Omarion’s statement, Chris Stokes was serving as his manager while he was attempting to establish a solo career. In addition to the financial and business ties, Omarion is a blood-relative of Stoke’s wife. In the video Raz B released last night, he stated that he would rejoin the tour only if Omarion would speak to him to persuade him to change his mind. That seems to have happened. Just two hours later, Raz B issued another statement retracting his departure.

Snubs and Celebrations: 2019 BET Award Nominations Are in!

mm

Published

on

While the major award season has long passed, summer entertainment and music awards season is upon us. BET just announced the nominees for the 2019 awards show.

Taking place on June 23rd at the Microsoft Theater in LA, actors and musicians will find out who stands among the winners and the losers. But the network that claims “We got you” is facing some heat for neglecting to include the queer community.

When it comes to who is looking to win big, all signs point to Cardi B. The “Money” rapper has been nominated 7 times with one award being Album of the Year. Her award nominations span 5 of the 20 available categories the ceremony highlights. While she’s sure to collect some trophies, her competition is rather steep. Cardi is up against The Carters album “Everything is Love.”

For actors, the categories are few and far between, but there’s love to go around…provided you aren’t a queer actor. The critically acclaimed FX drama series Pose is good enough to snatch trophies anywhere but home. BET has not recognized any talent from the series for either best actor or actress despite Billy Porter’s renowned performance. Fans of Pose have voiced their concerns on Twitter, calling out Black Entertainment Television for not rooting for everybody Black.

The full list of nominees is available here.

Are you excited to see who leaves a winner? Tune in June 23rd to find out who shines.

And Now Our Watch Has Ended: Game of Thrones Conclusion Falls Flat

mm

Published

on

Lovers of the fantasy series Game of Thrones tuned in for the nonsensical ending Sunday night. Much to their dismay, the conclusion to the once well-crafted tale left them with more continuity errors and questions than they bargained for.

Caution: This post contains spoilers for the entire series of Game of Thrones!

Howland Reed, The Grand Maester Conspiracy, The North Remembers, Lady Stoneheart. There were so many neglected arcs in the series that led to the rushed ending fans received last night. Although some still look fondly upon the franchise as one of the most enthralling, culturally captivating shows of all time, it’s memory is forever laced not just with what it included, but with what it altered or flat out ignored.

Originally foreseen by George R.R. Martin as having a Tolkien-esque ending where all loose ends are tied, showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are being roasted for the botched ending they’ve presented to a longsuffering fanbase. Appearing to have conveniently forgotten the iconic author’s grand plan, D & D stood by as plot lines and character arcs suffered from their deviation. No longer able to contain their frustrations fans have been incredibly vocal with their displeasure. Screaming in a single voice and echoing the cast’s sentiments, the Game of Thrones fandom agrees that this ending is “bullshit”.

The beginning of the series finale focused on Tyrion’s journey to uncover the fate of his siblings and Jon’s journey to convince Daenerys not to be “more of the same.” The Red Keep, thought to be in complete ruin, was still accessible to Tyrion, even as he wandered toward the underbelly of the enormous castle. A torch in hand, he dug through bricks to reach the tunnels where Jamie and Cersei lay. In what would be the first of many “What the f*ck?!” moments of the evening, Tyrion actually discovers the corpses of the star-crossed twins. Viewers watched in disappointment as he managed to stand in an area that should have been clearly collapsed, implying that if the lovers stood a few feet to the right, they might have survived the implosion. A travesty! Yet more cringe would follow as the episode unfolded.

For anxious onlookers who couldn’t wait to see what Sunday would bring, they could feast their eyes upon an accurate leak that described the events. Telegraphing Grey Worm’s descent into heartlessness as he killed enemies of “The Queen”, Jon’s eventual betrayal of Daenerys, and even character endings, it all played out just as the unnamed source said things would. No matter how much we wanted it all to be untrue, there it was in all of it’s ugliness. After 10 long years of production, after 2 long years of wait, Game of Thrones ended with democracy, SIX kingdoms, and Bran The Broken, First of His Name ascending to rule.

The overall reception of the conclusion to the series is a solid “NOPE!”. Viewers and critics have given the episode, titled The Iron Throne, a 57% rating. As social media users continue to share the ways in which the end was unfulfilling for them, book readers are urging them to begin reading the texts. There are still two novels left in the series, giving show watchers access to a true ending and the satisfaction of complete arcs with stunning detail.

Were you disappointed with Season 8? Did you think the series finale was an epic conclusion or did it leave much to be desired?

I wanna see the receipts! Fans Think Porn Star Brittney Jones is the Mother of Trey Songz’ Son

mm

Published

on

Trey Songz has sent fans into a downward spiral after posting a photo of him holding the foot of his newborn son, Noah. Revealing he’s now a father, fans are left with one question — Who is the mammy?

Us too, bruh!

“Blessed and overjoyed” to have finally become a parent, Trey Songz revealed to the world he and his partner welcomed a son. However, the identity of the other party has remained a mystery…potentially until now. Sleuthing fans have speculated that a porn star named Brittney Jones, who was allegedly responsible for the split between Songz and Lori Harvey, is the mother of his child.

Secret Lovers?

In December 2018, Lori Harvey and Trey Songz split after Lori discovered Trey had some “sick and twisted” desires. Forming a wicked love triangle, his urges led him into the DMs and eventually arms of Brittney Jones, an adult entertainment actress. While many were reluctant to believe she and Trey Songz were in any type of relationship, Brittney had one hell of a way of proving detractors wrong — an ultrasound.

Originally posted by herself and then discovered by The Shade Room, Brittney alleged that she and Songz were not only intimate, she was pregnant! The ultrasound wasn’t all she had in her arsenal at the time. Brittney went on to share seemingly unmanipulated video of her accessing her Snapchat, exposing messages between her and Trey Songz from his personal account. She also shared DMs he sent via his verified Twitter account and text messages where she inadvertently exposed his phone number. But things between the adult film star and singer weren’t all love.

The Dates Don’t Line Up

During the lengthy Instagram Live session where Brittney exposed Trey Songz and their relationship, she stated she had to block the singer because he was obsessed with her. In so many words, Brittney said Trey was so impressed by her sexual prowess that he couldn’t fathom not having her. Using every method of contact he could to ensure he didn’t lose her, Brittney stated he just wouldn’t leave her alone. However, her tune changed not long after she exposed Trigga Trey.

Brittney took a moment to explain her actions and reasoned that she lashed out “to hurt him the way he hurt” her. At the time of this madness, Trey was attempting to make amends with Lori but it didn’t workout. However, that hasn’t stopped Lori from celebrating the birth of Trey’s child despite the fact that it means whoever the mother is, was pregnant in August.

When Brittney claimed to be with child, she was only four weeks along at the end of December. So for those who are searching for the mother of Noah, they’ll have to keep looking.
