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.

Kris Jenner All Smiles While Out & About

Kris Jenner Is All Smiles In Los AngelesWell, Kris Jenner may be upset behind closed doors about ex-husband Bruce Jenner dating one of her best friends, but she’s hiding it while out in public. She looks happy, smiling widely as she arrives somewhere with the paparazzi recording every move. RELATED: Bruce Jenner is said to be dating Kris Jenner’s BFF.

The more I think about it, the more I think we’re getting a preview of an upcoming ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ storyline. This will be the aftermath of Kris’s and Bruce’s divorce. She’s been saying publicly that she’s not sure if she wants to date again while Bruce has already moved on with her former best friend. You have to admit, the story is dramatic.

I’m not suggesting it’s contrived, either. This is part of being a reality TV star: the stuff that occurs in your private life is fodder for your show. Moving on after a long-term marriage has the potential for plenty of drama. Are you interested in seeing how this plays out on ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’?

Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult: Sleeping Together, But Not in Love, Source Says

Rumors that Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult are dating began to surface around the time the actors began filming Equals together in Japan.

  • Kristen Stewart Haircut
  • Nicholas Hoult Red Carpet Pic

Now that shooting has wrapped, Hoult and KStew are still spending a lot of time together. Just last week, Stewart and Hoult attended a movie premiere together, leading many to believe they’re preparing to go public as a couple.

But sources say that Nick and Kristen are in a simple “friends with benefits” arrangement, and neither has any interest in making it official.

“Kristen absolutely adores Nick,” says one insider. “Is she in love with him? No, not at all. She’s in love with her independence right now and the peace that comes with not dating anyone seriously.”

“She promised herself she would not jump right into a serious relationship after Rob. He was the love of her life.”

Stewart and Hoult both went through high-profile breakups recently, and both of their A-list exes have moved on to committed relationships.

Robert Pattinson is dating FKA Twigs at the moment, and friends say the relationship is quickly getting serious.

Meanwhile, Hoult’s ex Jennifer Lawrence is dating Chris Martin and has reportedly already begun spending time with the Coldplay singer’s kids.

Despite the fact that their exes both seem to have found happiness with new boos, friends say Kristen and Nicholas have no interest in settling down together any time soon.

“[Kristen] is happy that Rob’s happy, but it’s not a subject she wants to talk about. As far as Nick’s concerned, they are super tight, but that’s pretty much it.”

Happy Birthday, Kristen Stewart!


Hooray for Kristen Stewart! The actress is now 24 years old!

Jude Law is expecting his fifth child by his third baby-mama, an ex-girlfriend

wenn20989373

Does Jude Law have some sort of latex allergy? Because he impregnated yet another woman. And he’s not even dating his new baby-mama anymore. First, to recap: Jude Law and Sadie Frost were married for years, back in the 1990s into the early ‘00s. They had three children together and Jude always said that he felt like Sadie’s oldest son (with Gary Kemp) was his as well. They split up around the time Jude was filming Cold Mountain (and it was rumored he had an affair with Nicole Kidman, by the way, although no one ever mentions that now). Shortly after Jude and Sadie split up, he met Sienna Miller and they promptly became the “It Couple” of London. Then he banged his kids’ nanny. Then Jude and Sienna did the on-and-off thing for a while. Time passed, then he had a one night stand with Samantha Burke which resulted in another baby, daughter Sophia (who is five years old now). So, he already had four biological children (and one stepson, Finlay). Skip ahead to today because Jude got his ex-girlfriend Catherine Harding pregnant.

Jude Law is going to be a dad again! The Dom Hemingway star and his ex are set to welcome a baby together, his rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

“I can confirm that Jude Law and Catherine Harding are expecting a child together in the spring. Whilst they are no longer in a relationship, they are both wholeheartedly committed to raising their child,” the actor’s rep says in a statement. “They consider this a private matter and other than this confirmation no statement will be made. I ask that you respect the privacy of all parties involved and their families.”

Law, 41, has three children with ex-wife Sadie Frost (sons Rafferty, 18, and Rudy, 12, and daughter Iris, who turns 14 this month) and another daughter, Sophia, 5, with model Samantha Burke.

“Being a daddy is what counts,” he told PARADE in 2009. “I used to sleep until noon, but it’s not so bad to have to get up at 7 and give them breakfast. My daughter made me realize that if there’s anything that’s going to make a man of you, it’s having your will broken by a little girl.”

[From People]

Bedhead just told me that she thinks Jude needs a vasectomy. That might be a good idea, because it doesn’t sound like Jude likes to wrap it up. And you know what? I had no idea he was even with anyone named Catherine Harding. The last time I checked, there were rumors about Jude and Ruth Wilson. I’ve also heard that Jude isn’t too happy about all of the child support he has to pay to Sadie and Samantha Burke, and now Catherine Harding as well. Jude Law is a mess.

PS… I’ll give him this though… he makes beautiful children.

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.

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?

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!

Justin Bieber House Party: Broken Up by Cops!

Justin Bieber has remained relatively quiet over the past few weeks, as the singer has been traveling throughout Europe for nearly a month.

But Bieber made a loud impression upon returning home to Beverly Hills last night.

Too loud, in fact: neighbors once again called the authorities to complain about all the craziness emanating from Bieber’s residence.

Justin Bieber Poses in Paris

According to law enforcement sources, via TMZ, cops showed up at Bieber’s condo TWICE last night to deal with the complaints, arriving first at 11 p.m but not even bothering to knock because all seemed peaceful.

They then returned nearly two hours later, spoke to Bieber directly and broke up the shindig.

This is far from the only time that the police have been called in to put an end to Justin Bieber’s rowdy home behavior.

In July, the police department stepped in as Bieber was throwing it down with Johnny Manziel and Floyd Mayweather, among other guests; while a party guest called 911 in December because another attendee had collapsed and passed out.

Yikes!

Fortunately, no one as harmed in this latest incident, unless you count the reputation of Bieber.

We’ve gotta imagine it takes a hit every time his name is connected to law enforcement.

Justin Bieber: Baby Daddy?


In November 2011, Mariah Yeater accused Justin of fathering her child via a one-night quickie. The accusation eventually went away.

Steve Harvey’s revolting matchmaker site will help women be ‘more dateable’

Steve Harvey

Steve Harvey is a real piece of work. His cushy day job as the host of Family Feud (since 2010) has granted him plenty of downtime. He’s used this luxury to dream up ways to place women where they belong (in his eyes). Steve wrote a book called Straight Talk, No Chaser: How to Find, Keep, and Understand a Man. He puts on the “God-fearing” persona and lectures women about how to keep their man, but Steve has treated his own wives terribly. Steve’s 2nd wife, Mary, put up with him for 16 years. Steve had no problem cheating on her and leaving her homeless (after he took their son) after she supported him during their tough times. Steve even sued Mary for telling her side of the story.

Steve is still married to his third wife, Marjorie. They’ve been together since 2007, and he recently gifted her with a Rolls Royce for her 50th birthday. That’s how Steve keeps his women happy. Let’s hope (for Marjorie’s sake) that she never has to deal with the horrors reported by his 2nd wife. Steve has always said that men and women can never be platonic friends. He’s decided (out of the “goodness” of his heart) to help women land a man for life. How? With a new dating website called Delightful. The site looks as corny as it sounds. For a mere $30 per month, Steve promises to help women become “more dateable.” AS IF:

Harvey on Mars vs. Venus: “Women are wired differently. The one thing I know about women is women don’t really want to just date. They want to date with the hope that it leads to a relationship. A man doesn’t have any problem at all dating several or a wide variety of people until he finds the right one. A lot of women have that biological clock that ticks in them.”

The pitch: Delightful will cater primarily to women, but also to men with a womanly interest in settling down. For women, there will be advice columns on topics such as “how to become more dateable.”

Women should stop being so picky: “Your soulmate, the man of your dreams, may not live an hour away.”

Men aren’t perfect either: Men, meanwhile, need tutoring in the fine points of chivalry, like always walking in between one’s date and the street to protect her from traffic. “It’s sad to say, but the divorce rate in this country is so high, there are a lot of young men out there, quality men, who’ve never been told, ‘Hey man, this is the proper way to treat a lady.’”

Why Delightful is better than cheaper or free dating sites: “Now, you can hit it, just like you can go to Vegas and hit the triple sevens on the Super Lotto, but you’re going to have to put a lot of coins in it.”

What, Delightful isn’t for you? “We’re not looking for one specific person, per se. If you’re in a period of your life where you don’t feel like you need a protector, we can probably find you a guy who doesn’t want to be a protector.”

[From Forbes]

Whatever, dude. Steve is a womanizer, a cheater, and a guy who’s already been married three times. His current wife receives lavish gifts, which may or may not be the reason she’s around for 7 years.

I shouldn’t waste my energy being offended by Steve Harvey. Some men and women believe in gender stereotypes, and they’ll likely appreciate a website that feed their delusions beliefs. The main issue that I have is that Steve wants to make both men and women learn how to appeal to each other by faking it. Steve is selling “scripts” on how to speak to the other sex. These methods have nothing to do with actual compatibility. Does that even matter? I guess if someone is “looking for a good time,” then scripts are a decent method to get there. But Steve is selling the promise of long-term compatibility in a relationship. He’s feeding the promise of marriage to his subscribers. All of this is coming from a guy who cheated on his wives and left them with a whole lot of nothing.

Here’s a photo of Steve with his 3rd wife, Marjorie. Good luck to her.
