A flurry of tweets erupted from Kanye West’s Twitter account. Alleging Drake threatened him, Kanye says Drake has gone too far.
“No tough talk either”
At 10pm EST, Kanye began his tweet streak, calling out Drake’s shady behavior. In the 4-hour-long tirade, he implied Drake was responsible for the hospitalized Pusha T concertgoer that rushed the stage. He also credited Drake for the death of XXXTentacion and arrest of Tekashi69. Saying “I got a family and kids”, it seems Kanye may fear for his safety.
So drake if anything happens to me or anyone from my family you are the first suspect So cut the tough talk

“I need my apologies now!”
Calling him “disrespectful to all people with mental health conditions”, Kanye implored Drake to work things out. In the past, Drake has held an extensive feud with Kid Cudi, who famously struggles with depression. Going for the low blow after being name-checked for having ghost writers, Drake said this in “Two Birds, One Stone”:
“You stay xanned and perc’d up, so when reality set in, you don’t gotta face/Look what happens soon as you talk to me crazy/Is you crazy?”
The track, released while Kid Cudi was seeking care in a rehabilitation facility, sent him into a tizzy, promising retaliation upon release. But Cudi would need to aim twice if he wanted retribution, as Kanye was credited as a writer for the diss. Despite championing for the normalization of mental health care discussion in recent years, Kanye does not have clean hands either.
If I’m bipolar This kind of shit can get me ramped

While no one is entirely sure what caused the beef, tweets about 2 hours into Kanye’s rant hinted why. Blaming Travis Scott, Drake drew his ire for dissing him in “Sicko Mode”. Claiming “Trav is my family and let this met throw sneak disses at me for clout”, Kanye says he heard there was more to Drake’s verse insulting him.
Through it all, Drake seemed to be amused by his meltdown, allegedly sending “purple emojis” to Kim. He even requested clearance for “Say What’s Real”. Kanye ultimately denied the request for the sample.
Never one to stand idly by when it comes to family, Kim eventually popped out to defend her man.
Completely sidestepping Lil Wayne’s discovery of Drake, many said Kimberly should’ve just sat there and ate her food.
While there’s no indication there’s been a resolution to their disagreement, Kanye says “don’t sneak diss or diss at all”.
What do you think about this situation? Is the King of Calabasas really about that action or is he bluffing?
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend Share News of the Loss of Their Unborn Child
Early Thursday morning Chrissy Teigen and John Legend let the world know of the loss of their unborn child. In a heartfelt and heartbreaking post to social media, Teigen described her and husband John Legend’s “deep pain you only hear about.” She went on to talk about how the couple does not typically name their children “until the last possible moment after they’re born, just before (they) leave the hospital,” but somehow they fell on the name “Jack.”
The heartbreaking news comes just days after first being admitted to the hospital for what she described as heavy bleeding. However, two days ago, she assured fans that both her and baby were healthy and doing well. Teigen, no stranger to social media, continued to engage her following, giving brief updates along the way, when shortly after midnight she shared photos of her and John in the hospital cradling their newborn in the immediate aftermath.
While her husband has remained largely unproblematic and scandal-free, Teigen has been the frequent target of scathing criticism – much of which is completely valid. From her ridiculing Black hair, to her seemingly mocking intimate partner violence when she referenced Megan Thee Stallion and Tory Lanez’s incident, Chrissy Teigen has been the focus of such harsh vitriol that she has threatened to quit social media altogether on multiple occasions. Sharing such personal news with the world may come as a surprise to many.
Overwhelmingly, however, the internet’s response has been positive and embracing. Celebrities and non-celebs alike have offered words of support to the couple as they go through this difficult time. See both the model’s post and the heartwarming responses to it below.
Chadwick Boseman Passes Away At 43
Actor Chadwick Boseman, best known for his role as King T’Challa in the box office smash “Black Panther” passed away from colon cancer Friday.
The actor was first diagnosed with stage 3 cancer in 2016, but remained active in his career with much of his work being released post-diagnosis. A statement from his family confirmed that he continued to work despite his cancer progressing, befitting a man who brought America’s first Black superhero to the silver screen.
As the news of the actor’s death spread, many took to social media to share their condolences.
The tributes continue to flood in as news of his passing continues to ripple through. Read the official statement from his family below.
“It is with immeasurable grief that we confirm the passing of Chadwick Boseman.
Chadwick was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer in 2016, and battled with it these last 4 years as it progressed to stage IV.
A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all, and brought you many of the films you have come to love so much. From Marshall to Da 5 Bloods, August Wilson’s Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom and several more, all were filmed during and between countless surgeries and chemotherapy.
It was the honor of his career to bring King T’Challa to life in Black Panther.
He died in his home, with his wife and family by his side.
The family thanks you for your love and prayers, and asks that you continue to respect their privacy during this difficult time.”
When White Privilege Isn’t Enough to Get Into USC: Lori Loughlin Sentenced to 2 Months in Prison
Actress Lori Loughlin was sentenced to two months in prison today for her role in the college admissions scandal. If you haven’t followed the 10-month-long saga, Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli, a fashion designer, plead not guilty to a bribery charge in a college admission scam back in 2019… Because white privilege just isn’t what it used to be.
The two later plead guilty to paying William Rick Singer, the mastermind, $500,000 to guarantee their two daughters a spot at the University of South Carolina.
Loughlin’s sentence came several hours after her husband’s five-month sentence. According to the US Attorney for the District of Massachusetts, Giannulli’s five-month sentence also came with a whopping fine of $250,000 and 250 hours of community service.
“[Giannulli] engaged more frequently with Singer, directed the bribe payments to USC and Singer, and personally confronted his daughter’s high school counselor to prevent the scheme from being discovered, brazenly lying about his daughter’s athletic abilities,” US Attorney Andrew Lelling of Massachusetts said in the memo released on Tuesday. “Loughlin took a less active role, but was nonetheless fully complicit, eagerly enlisting Singer for a second time for her younger daughter, and coaching her daughter not to ‘say too much’ to her high school’s legitimate college counselor, lest he caught on to their [fradulent activity].
