Rihanna May Cancel Tour Dates Due To Poor Sales; Ciara Snickers On Twitter?

Looks like lightening's striking twice in regards to Rihanna's recent tour sales. Similar to her Last Girl On Earthtour last year, NY Post is reporting that the Bajan singer is having trouble selling tickets for her Loud tour, scheduled to start in the US in June.

Sources say after poor US concert pre-sales last month, Rihanna has been advised by her manager over at Roc Nation, Jay Brown, to cancel domestic dates on her upcoming tour. Her scheduled tour date at T.D. Garden arena in Boston on July 24th with Cee Lo Green has only sold a disappointing 3,700 tickets out of the 15,000 she needs just to break even. They expect more than a half-million dollars in losses from the Boston concert alone.

The tour starts on June 4th in Baltimore and heads to Canada and then around the US before moving to England in August. But sources say while the ticket sales are sluggish, Rihanna is demanding "the works" for a memorable show. An insider is quoted as saying "It's the normal diva requests, which is tolerated, when you make money."

Heres where things get rather funny: Remember that little Twitter feud Rihanna and Ciara had a couple of weeks back where she tweeted to Ciara "Good Luck with booking that stage you speak of"? Well, heres what Ciara had to say just minutes ago in what looks like a response to Rihanna's recent ticket sales debacle:

That Ciara man...

Kodak Black Says We Need To Put Him Among The Greats Like Tupac, Biggie And Nas

Judging by Kodak Black's recent Instagram Live session, where he claimed that he was on the same level as rappers who are often revered as some of the G.O.A.Ts in the game, he's got an unshakeable confidence. It's admirable...

In a video, the Floridian urges people to stop paying attention to what they see on the Internet about him, because what really matters in the work he produces.

"I'm the hardest young... I'm the hardest rapper in the game, I promise," he proclaims. "Like, when you talk 'bout me, you should put me in a category of like 'Pac, B.I.G, Nas, them n***as, you feel me? Like really listen to my sh*t. Don't care about how I act, like, on the 'Gram, you feel me? F**k what the blogs say, ask about me in the skreets, I’m a real one, and I spit that fire."

The embattled MC recently made headlines for comments he made towards Young M.A. and Lil Wayne. He reportedly said that Wayne "should have died when he was a baby," which caught the wrath of the New Orleans legend's daughter, Reginae.

Thoughts on Young Kodak's claim? Watch his comments below and let us know in the comments.

Duane Martin Says Tisha Campbell Is Lying About Domestic Abuse

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Duane Martin is reportedly calling his estranged wife Tisha Campbell a liar who "manufactured" a claim about how he abused her. She was reportedly granted a restraining order against her former husband of over 20 years back in January.

Martin says his ex and her brother “manufactured a false claim of alleged domestic violence against the Co-Debtor which they filed with the police. Even Co-Debtor’s family law attorney would not sign his name on such a claim. The police saw the claim for what it was and did not pursue it.”

Mr. Martin claims that the abuse allegations are not true, and that Tisha is trying to ruin his finances. He also accuses her brother Stanley Campbell of illegally recording private conversations.

"Two weeks ago, Stanley flew to New York. While there, he exerted undue influence, bullying and obtained private financial information of my mother and me," his statement continues. "He then turned over his ill-gotten gains to the Trustee a week ago through emails. Stanley is getting more aggressive and using police databases illegally."

In a statement, Ms. Campbell claims that she was physically, mentally and emotionally abused since she married Duane in 1996. One of the alleged incidents involved her being punched in the chest by her then-husband. "The need [to] press criminal charges for his acts overshadows the embarrassment of making his crimes against me public through this report," she stated.

Kobe Bryant Encourages LeBron James To "Keep Pushing" Despite Rocky Season

Following the Los Angeles Lakers' up-and-down season, former purple and gold player Kobe Bryant offered encouraging words to the team and its newcomer, LeBron James.

On an episode of ESPN's Get Up with Mike Greenberg, Bryant said the string of injuries plagued the West Coast franchise. "It's unfortunate because they got hit with so many injuries in rapid succession," he said. "When they were rolling they were playing very well, exceeding people's expectations. Then they got hit with all these injuries, kind of set them back, knocked them off of kilter a little bit. It's hard to reboot that."

"Seasons like this are what make the championships worth it.”

Greenberg then went on to ask if the 20-year vet has any advice to offer James, who joined the legendary franchise in 2018. "Oh, you just got to keep pushing," Bryant said honestly. "Seasons like this are what make the championships worth it."

Much like James' experience with the Lakers, Bryant's 2005 playoffs appearance was nixed after losing to the Detroit Pistons in the finals. Injuries and fluctuating rosters caused them to lack focus. However, the Lakers did make their way back into the playoffs that following year.
