13 Rappers Who Went Broke: They Should’ve Kept Their Mind on Their Money! (And Their Money on Their Mind!)

In many ways, rappers are like professional athletes: 

They’re fiercely competitive; many view their talent as their only way to escape awful circumstances; they often experience success at a very young age…and they’re frequently broke before they hit their mid-twenties.

And we’re not even talking about the Vanilla Ices and MC Hammers whose riches to rags stories have become industry-wide cautionary tales.

Lil Kim


There’s nothing lil about Kim’s debt. The legendary femcee owes more than $2.5 million to her former record label and $1million to the goverment.

Many rappers who are still bragging about their wealth in club-banger verses have squandered sums greater than the GDPs of some small island nations.

Naturally, lots of celebrities go broke as their star begins to fade and they struggle desperately to continue living the lavish lives to which they’ve become accustomed, but rappers seem particularly vulnerable to the “spend fast, go bankrupt young” mentality.

Maybe it’s the genre’s emphasis on jewels, clothes, and cars. Or perhaps it has something to do with the major labels’ notorious (no pun intended) habit of screwing up-and-comers on what should be multi-million dollar deals.

Whatever the case, the list above is likely to surprise you.

Did you Kylie Jenner’s boyfriend Tyga owes over $100,000 in back taxes? Or that the dollar sign in Ma$e’s name is completely ironic at this point?

There’s a lot to be learned from the list above. For one thing, don’t start buying gold chains until your mortgage is taken care of.

For another thing, Lil Kim shouldn’t have named her kid Royal Reign while she’s seven figures in debt. That’s putting a lot of pressure on a baby, Kim.

Ronda Kamihira: Dating Bruce Jenner!

Bruce Jenner has moved on from Kris Jenner.

But not all that far away.

According to People Magazine, the former Olympian is getting it on with Ronda Kamihira, Kris’ longtime personal assistant and best friend. AWKWARD!

Bruce in his hey day. He certainly has changed a lot since then.

“Kris is devastated,” says a source in the know. “This was her former assistant and best friend of 20 years.”

According to this same insider, Kendall and Kylie Jenner grew up with Kamihira’s two kids and “have been their best friends.”

What happened to the amicable split? What happened to the couple who nearly didn’t get a divorce and were simply living separate lives in separate houses for a few months?

It’s hard to say. You can’t fight feelings sometimes and Bruce may not be trying to intentionally hurt his ex-wife.

However, “Kris is just shocked” by the news,” this mole tells People. “She’s so sad and completely heartbroken.”

Bruce first publicly stepped out with Kamihira at an Elton John concert in Los angeles on October 4. Just a couple months earlier, Kamihira had vacationed with Kris in Punta Mita.

“It really stings because Ronda never told Kris she started seeing Bruce,” another source tells TMZ.

Bruce and Kris Jenner in 2012


Awww, remember when? Bruce and Kris Jenner act all silly circa 2012 in this photo. They have since split up.

Ronda Kamihira is 51 years old. She is a divorced mother of two.

Kris Jenner, meanwhile, filed for divorce from Bruce Jenner in mid-September. The two had been keeping separate bank accounts and the process moved along very quickly and peacefully.

Hailey Baldwin Modeling Photos: Is She The New Kendall Jenner?

Even though Kylie and Kendall Jenner have mastered the art of the selfie, there’s another pair of snap-happy celebrity relatives who may be going after the title of Queens of Instagram.

Hailey and Ireland Baldwin are just as selfie-obsessed as the Jenners and what’s more, they actually have talent in their family!

Sure, Hailey’s uncle, Alec Baldwin is a rage-fueled lunatic, but he’s also an acting legend who still somehow wields a lot clout. Which means that when the next generation of Baldwins settle on career fields, they shouldn’t have much trouble making names for themselves.

And it’s looking like 17-year-old Hailey has made her choice:

Hailey Baldwin walks the runway in Paris. Fashion insiders say she’s a natural.

Sure, Hailey and Kendall are friends now, but will their BFF-ship last now that they’re competing for jobs?

After all, there’s only so much nepotism to go around and it’s only a matter of time before North West starts toddling her way down the runway!

Yes, the elder Jenner’s inner circle is filled with budding fashion icons and sources say that Kendall feels her fame is hurting her modeling career.

If that’s really what Kendall believes, it’s all the more reason that she likely doesn’t appreciate the competition from Hailey.

Not only is Alec’s daughter said to already be in higher demand (despite being a year younger than Kendall), her career is proof that blaming your lack of modeling gigs on your famous last name is just really, really dumb.

Iggy Azalea-Snoop Dogg Feud: Real or Fake?

What began as an odd but mostly harmless feud between controversial, emerging rapper Iggy Azalea and hip hop great Snoop Dogg turned ugly this week.

Harsher and harsher insults, followed by full-on Instagram threats, soon sucked all the humor out of this beef, which T.I. had to intervene and squash.

As Ron Burgundy would say, that escalated quickly.

Iggy Azalea and Snoop Dogg

Was this celebrity feud the real deal, though, like Kanye and Jimmy Kimmel? Or an elaborate PR stunt, a la Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj’s pre-American Idol bickering?

Honestly, we can’t tell. Signs point both directions.

We’re still not entirely sure this was legitimate, but if it was staged, they sure went to great lengths to fuel the fire. Let’s break down the case for each …

Real: Snoop’s Iggy Azalea No Make-Up diss was rough, but sounds like his sense of humor, and was likely someone else’s meme that he just shared.

Fake: Iggy seemed hurt, rather than defiant, saying Snoop has always been “nice as hell” to her face and “I’m disappointed you’d be such an ass for no reason.”

Real: Snoop’s posse doubled down, dissing her again as he continued to post memes of her, such as one likening her to Marlon Wayans in White Chicks.

Fake: Iggy says it’s only Snoop’s two-faced behavior that bugs her, especially since her bodyguard saved his friend’s life … implying the two hang out.

Real: Iggy’s boyfriend Nick Young of the L.A. Lakers jumped in, dissing Snoop for going through a midlife crisis. Why get involved if it’s not legit?

Fake: Snoop shared a pic Nicki Minaj sitting by herself, captioned “Nicki sitting with other relevant female rappers,” fueling Iggy’s earlier “feud” with Nicki.

Real: That felt a little off to us, but Snoop then tripled down with a profane video, threatening Iggy’s life and dropping words we don’t want to repeat here.

Fake: Snoop apologized very, very quickly after T.I. allegedly called him. Iggy and Tip are tight, but since when does she need him to fight her battles for her?

Real: T.I. once fought Floyd Mayweather and threatened Apollo Nida’s life for talking about him. If he did tell Snoop to stand down … Snoop might take heed.

Fake: The American Music Awards are next month. Iggy leads with six nods. Snoop will collaborate with ANYONE big at the moment. Just saying.

Real: Snoop’s teenage daughter (remember, the Dogg is a father who’s 42 years old now) tweeted about the feud. With a sad-face emoticon. :(

Conclusion: We have absolutely no idea. It could go either way based on this evidence. What do you think? Cast your vote in our survey below:

 
Her Stage Name Has History


She took the name “Iggy Azalea” from her childhood dog and the street she grew up on.

Tyga and Blac Chyna: Back Together or Just Messing With Kylie Jenner?

For weeks now, we’ve been hearing rumors that Tyga and Kylie Jenner are dating. Both parties denied that they were anything more than just friends, but they seemed to provide more evidence to the contrary every day.

From holding hands in public to Tyga posting photos of Kylie on his Instagram page, the alleged couple seemed to be making little effort to hide their romance, despite their barely legal age difference.

Earlier today, however, Tyga’s ex, Blac Chyna, posted the below photo to Instagram, then almost instantly deleted it.

Tyga and Blac Chyna Photo

The neck tatt gives away that that is in fact T-Raww cuddling up to Blac. Chyna captioned the photo, “By the way he said I’m not missin no meals…” a booty reference lifted from Nicki Minaj’s Anaconda. We’re guessing Kylie is less than amused.

Of course, there’s reason to believe that Blac and Tyga might be orchestrating an elaborate con.

Earlier this week, word spread that Lil Wayne is pissed at Tyga for dating Kylie. That’s a big problem for the rapper, as Wayne is his label boss and is reportedly refusing to release Tyga’s new album until he ends things with Kylie.

So did Tyga recruit his ex to help trick his boss? Was he hoping Wayne would see the photo before Kylie did? Good luck with that one, dude. You’re dating Kylie Jenner – she’s probably go an Instagram chip in her brain at this point.

Kerry Washington: Makeup-Free for Allure!

Kerry Washington has given fans yet another reason to totally and completely be in love with her.

The actress is already talented (watch Scandal online for evidence)… hilarious (see this Modern Family cast photobomb)… and admirably guarded (go look at those photos of her wedding to Nnamdi Asomugha; no wait, sorry, you can’t! There are none!)

She’s also a pure beauty, as proven once again on the cover of next month’s Allure.

Kerry Washington Allure Cover

Washington – who can be seen tonight at 9/8c on ABC as political fixer Olivia Pope – isn’t wearing a touch of makeup for the lead photo, which hit the Internet today and which the star herself teased as follows on Twitter:

“What an honor! Thanks @Allure_magazine.”

Look for more images and more quotes from the cover story to be released on the World Wide Web over the coming days.

Until then, we’ll continue to give mad, crazy props to Washington and we’ll be tuning in every Thursday night to see just how crazy/sexy/awesome/OMG-worthy things get on Scandal.

Kim Kardashian


Kim Kardashian’s doesn’t lie about the fact that makeup MAKES her who she is. She’s shared more than one tutorial about how to get her signature look using highlighting products to contour her face.

Lindsay Lohan and Mohammed Al Turki: Dating?!

Last time we checked in on her, Lindsay Lohan was looking for a rich British guy, and it now it seems her hunt might be over.

Lindsay Lohan with Mohammed Al Turki

That’s Linds with Mohammed Al Turki, a Saudi-born film producer living in England. At just 28, Al Turki has such credits to his name as Arbitrage and What Maisie Knew. 

Yes, Mohammed is responsible for the sort of high-minded, artsy indie fare that Linds probably wouldn’t watch with a gun to her head. But that’s okay. At the end of the day, she loves blow and he’s super loaded – it’s a match made in heaven!

Lindsay has denied dating Al Turki in the past, but as we all know, LiLo an on-again, off-again relationship (mostly off) with reality and the truth.

After all, the same Instagram page that shows Linds and Mo in a million pics together also features a shot in which Lindsay Photoshopped herself into a charity event

Oh, and let’s not forget that she recently spoke openly about her plans to win an Oscar and star in Mean Girls 2.

What we’re saying is, if you wanna know about Lindsay Lohan’s life, the last person you should ask is Lindsay Lohan.

Lindsay and Mohammed might not be “dating,” but we’d bet our life savings that they’re at least knockin’ boots. So in the end, Linds went overseas, landed an acting job, and scored herself a rich dude.

Apparently, London is the land where impossible dreams come true. Their new tourism posters should feature that slogan under photos of before-and-after Linds.

Lindsay Lohan: Teeth


This is not exactly Lindsay Lohan at her best. Then again, when was the last time we saw Lindsay Lohan at her best?

Khloe Kardashian Plays with North West, Posts Cute Pic on Instagram

According to a new report, Kanye West does not want Scott Disick anywhere near his daughter.

But Khloe Kardashian? Khloe Kardashian is very much permitted to hang out with niece North West, which she apparently did for a bit this week.

“North stole my cat ears mask,” Kardashian captioned a new image on Instagram. “I have to admit it looks better on her.”

Khloe and Nori

Khloe has always maintained a close relationship with the child of Kanye and Kim Kardashian.

Not long after North was born last year, Khloe posted numerous pictures of the baby, unable to hide her excitement over being an aunt.

As for Nori, this lace mask she took from Khloe is scarcely the first piece of covetable attire that she has donned.

Not even two years old yet, Kimye’s loved one has already attended major runway shows at Paris Fashion Week… worn Givenchy couture… and hob-knobbed with designers such as Riccardo Tisci.

Not a bad life if you can get it, huh?

Morning, Kim and Nori!


It’s Kim Kardashian and daughter Nori! The former posted this photo online with a simple caption: Good morning.

The question, of course, now becomes this: when will Khloe Kardashian have a baby of her own? WHEN?!?!?!?!

Kylie Jenner Flaunts Cleavage, Lip Injections on Instagram

By her own admission, Kylie Jenner is obsessed with Instagram, and she knows what she’s doing when it comes to photo-sharing.

Kylie’s got such a firm grasp on how to keep her millions of followers entertained that her selfie skills earned her a spot on Time magazine’s list of the most influential teens of 2014.

With all the benefits she’s reaped thus far, it’s unlikely that Kylie will cool it with the selfies any time soon, and we can’t blame her. Even so, pics like the one below definitely make us wonder where this girl’s parents are:

Hot Kylie Selfie

That’s Kylie and her lip injections rocking a typically age inappropriate outfit, and this shot gives us the feeling that even Kylie realizes she’s growing up too fast.

Something about that look on her face says, “Wow, I’m 17 and this is gonna be on the Internet forever.”

Of course, KJ is running with a much older crowd these days, so maybe she doesn’t realize what a bad idea it is for her to rush right into adulthood like this.

Kylie is dating Tyga, a 24-year-old rapper with a child of his own who was – until recently – engaged to one of Kim Kardashian’s best friends.

Hopefully Kylie will pull a Kim (ditch the douche and not settle down until her 30s) and not a Kourtney (settle down with the douche and pop out a million kids). 

Selfies!
