Nate Dogg Facing Posthumous Child Support Lawsuit

Two of the late singer Nate Dogg’s baby mothers are locked in a legal battle over—you guess it—child support.

According to TMZ, Rhoda Mouton has filed documents with the Los Angeles Superior Court against Omena Norris, who had her child with Nate Dogg in 2006.

Mouton is asking a judge to deny Norris’ request for more child support. Mouton claims Norris lied in her filing when stated her son received no Social Security payments from Nate’s estate, arguing that Norris and her son receive $694 every month.

Mouton believes Norris has no valid reason on why her support should be increased by $222 per month (from $1,624 to $1,846, monthly) , alleging that the support should actually be sliced down to $802 per month.

A judge has yet to rule.

Emmys 2019: Billy Porter Takes Home Award For Lead Actor In A Drama Series

The category is: Billy Porter just won the award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series at the 71st Annual Emmy Awards! As the last hour of the ceremony picked up its pace, the Pose star was announced as the winner of the category by fellow actor Kerry Washington.

Decked in sparkling Michael Kors custom suit, an excited Porter joyously made his way to the stage before sharing how happy he is to have lived long enough to see this moment where an opening gay black man receives a lead actor award at the prestigious Emmys.

"I am so overwhelmed and I am so overjoyed to live long enough to see this day," he said as he started his acceptance speech. "James Baldwin said, 'It took many years of vomiting up all the filth I’d been taught about myself, and half-believed before I was able to walk on the earth as though I had a right to be here.' I have the right, you have the right, we all have the right!"

Porter went on to thank the fellow nominees, his mother, his Pose castmates and those who supported him in his 30-plus years in the entertainment industry. The actor drove it home by stressing the importance of being an artist in the world.

"We are the people. We as artists are the people that get to change the molecular structure of the hearts and the minds of the people who live on this planet," he stated. "Please don't ever stop doing that. Please don't ever stop telling the truth."

Aside from becoming the first openly gay Black man to win Best Lead Actor in a Drama Series, Porter rang in his 50th birthday earlier this week. Talk about a gift! Watch Billy Porter's historic acceptance speech below.

Emmys 2019: Jharrel Jerome Wins 'Lead Actor' For Role In 'When They See Us’

It was a celebratory and emotional moment for actor Jharrel Jerome as he received his first Emmy for Lead Actor in a Limited Series for When They See Us.

Jerome accepted the accolade Sunday (Sept 22) at the awards ceremony at Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. In the series directed by Ava DuVernay, the Bronx native portrayed Korey Wise, one of the Exonerated Five who were falsly accused of a crime he and four others didn't commit. Visibly emotional, the 22-year-old gave thanks to his parents during his acceptance speech.

"I feel like I should just be in the Bronx right now, chillin,' waiting for my mom's cooking but I'm here," he said. "But I'm here in front of people I'm so motivated by."

The young actor was up against some of the best in the business such as Moonlight co-star Mahershala Ali (True Detective), Benicio Del Toro (Escape at Dannemora), Hugh Grant (A Very English Scandal), Jared Harris (Chernobyl) and Sam Rockwell (Fosse/Verdon).

Jerome also thanked Antron McCray, Kevin Richardson, Yusef Salaam, Raymond Santana and as he rightfully shouted "King" Korey Wise.

"Most important[ly], this is for the men known as The Exonerated Five," he said as the men stood on their feet. "Thank you so much. It's an honor, it's a blessing."

Watch the moment above.

TV Guide reports Jerome's win was "initially considered a lock," due to Chernobyl, the HBO series that won seven Creative Arts Emmys.

Florida Grandmother Incensed After Six Year Old Granddaughter Was Arrested For A Tantrum

A 6-year-old was arrested, fingerprinted and had her mug shot taken by Florida police for reportedly throwing a tantrum at her elementary school last week.

According to reports, Meralyn Kirkland learned her granddaughter Kaia was brought to the juvenile detention center in Orlando, Florida after she had an outburst.

“What do you mean she was arrested," Kirkland recalled. "He said ‘there was an incident and she kicked somebody and she is being charged and she is on her way,' ” Kirkland explained to local news outlets.

After explaining to the officer that Kaia has sleep apnea, Kirkland says the cop showed no concern.

“She has a medical condition that we are working on getting resolved and he says, ‘what medical condition?' she has a sleep disorder, sleep apnea,’ and he says, ‘well I have sleep apnea and I don’t behave like that.”

Kirkland couldn't believe what was happening and couldn't believe a child had been arrested.

“They told us we had to wait a few minutes because Kaia was being fingerprinted, and when she said fingerprinted it hit me like a ton of bricks,” Kirkland said.

“No six year old child should be able to tell somebody that they had handcuffs on them and they were riding in the back of a police car and taken to a juvenile center to be fingerprinted, mug shot”

Kaia is back at home.
