 Christina Milian and Dream

Christina Milian and The Dream

After a whirlwind romance and getting divorced just ten months after getting married, these two dealt with some drama during their split. The Dream filed divorce papers just nine days before daughter Violet was born and he was rumored to pay Christina an estimated $4 million divorce settlement along with $5k a month in child support. They also came into conflict over Justin Bieber's single "Baby" because  Dream supposedly promised Christina 10 percent of it.

Mike Tyson And Robin Givens

Marrying each other just eleven months after dating, this union may have been doomed from that start. Givens has said that she "lived in fear" of the fighter while Tyson accused Robin of using him for his money. Tyson also claimed he caught Brad Pitt in bed with his wife and that's what ended their union. The end result? A 10 million divorce settlement after only a few months of marriage.

Eddie and Nicole Murphy

After dating for a year and a half, these two had five children and a 13 year marriage. After divorcing in 2006, Nicole was estimated to received a cool one time payment of $15 million.

Kimora Lee and Russell Simmons

This power couple was bound to break up sooner or later.. there can only be one diva per household! After meeting when she was only 17 and he was 35, their marriage lasted eight years and produced two children. Russell and Kimora Lee Simmons had quite the amicable split. Wondering just  how much it cost him? He was ordered to pay out $40k per month in child support ($20,000 for each child) until they turn 19 years of age. Russell does want to get something clear, though.

Nas and Kelis

After getting married in July 2003 after two years of dating, Kelis and Nas had one epic ugly divorce battle. Kelis filed for divorce in May 2009 while seven months pregnant. Nas was reported to pay an estimated $40k per month in spousal and child support (which was later reduced to $25k). The irony? Kelis gave birth to her son a day after the child support and spousal support ruling.

Michael and Juanita Jordan

This was one marriage we thought just might make it. After being married for 18 years, the couple called it quits in 2006. Their split ended up costing the basketball legend an estimated $168 million. Talk about hoop dreams!

Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren

After what was known as possibly the biggest payout in celebrity divorce history, Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren take the cake on this one. After being married for five years, no one can forget the way these two split. In the divorce settlement in which Tiger quite literally paid for her silence, he was estimated to pay a rumored $750 million in exchange for her to never be able to speak on his infidelity. Fair trade?!

City Girls Get "Careless" In New Music Video

In honor of the one-year anniversary of their debut project Period, City Girls has dropped a music video for their song "Careless."

The video stars the rap duo, Yung Miami and J.T., the latter who is currently serving a two-year sentence in Tallahassee. The visual directed by Gabriel "Video God" Hart, features the two rap divas sporting their iced out Quality Control chains rapping in the streets of what appears to be Miami. Both Yung Miami and J.T. are donning the same outfits, distressed jean shorts-underwear, a cropped Miami jersey with a white turtleneck underneath and the classic Timberland boots.

City Girls are showing exactly what they're made of as they rap about "living life so careless," and "h**s [being] so mad it's evident" with an entourage of women behind them. The short clip is full of fun-filled energy as the hot rappers bounce from location to location. Whether they're in a hotel room sipping on some Hennessy, in a store copping a couple of things, they still manage to get their bars off.

The visual is a good representation of what fans can expect from the rap duo, even more so if they see them in concert. Most recently Yung Miami performed the girls' big hit, "Act Up" at Rolling Loud with the help of Lil' Yachty, their co-collaborator on the song. Next up for Yung Miami is the Hot 97 Summer Jam on June 2 at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.

Make sure to check out their music video above and stream Period in celebration of its one-year anniversary.

Blac Chyna Named As Suspect In Assault Against Hair Stylist

Well, this isn't the best way to celebrate your birthday.

Blac Chyna has reportedly got in trouble with the law again after a confrontation with her hair stylist. TMZ reports the Chyna and the employee who hasn't been unidentified, were at Chyna's home in San Fernando Valley, Calif. when they got into an argument over payment.

The police report alleges after the hair stylist attempted to collect her check from Chyna, the 31-year-old pulled out a knife. The hair dressed left and reportedly threw soda cans at Chyna's car. A source shared with the outlet that Chyna didn't have a weapon on her person but there were cans thrown at her car.

Because Chyna's six-year-old son King was present, there's a chance the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services will get involved for a possible welfare check.

Chyna hasn't addressed the incident but will more than likely still have a nice birthday.

Queen Naija Responds To Backlash For Going Public About Plastic Surgery

Queen Najia's decision to be blunt about her plastic surgery was met with backlash when she was accused of normalizing the procedure for young women.

The singer-songwriter who is known for her bold personality and power vocals shared the video titled, "Revealing My New Body | One Week Post Op Tummy Tuck + BBL (Brazillian Buttlift)" on YouTube Friday (May 10). In a previous video, Naija vlogged her plans to get a tummy tuck while heading to the Billboard Music Awards where she was nominated for Top R&B Female Artist.

The singer previously went under the knife after the birth of her first child in 2017, leading to a case of bad fibrosis. "I'm really really happy about the results," she said. "I basically got a tummy tuck and I got my hernia repaired around my belly navel, it would puff out because of my loose skin. I had really really bad fibrosis from the smart lipo I got two years ago."

In her recap video, the singer seemed to be visibly happy with the results and additional unplanned surgery for the Brazilian Buttlift. "I'm just really really happy. I feel more confident with my body and being a mom with two kids and having two c-sections, and all the stuff going on with myself, I'm really happy," she said Friday. "I will not be getting any more surgery. I won't turn into one of those girls who gets lip fat added and all this stuff. I'm not touching my face. As yall know I got eye fillers and I'm never doing that again."

But her joy was quickly met with criticism after The Shade Room picked up a portion of the video on their Instagram page. Naija responded in jest. "Now if I would have kept it a secret, like a lot of other women who’ve had surgery.. everyone would have saying “Liar, did you get surgery, why you hiding it?” she said.  Lol, I tell the truth & it’s still an issue. Hilarious. Imma take my new booty and hide in a ditch."

#QueenNaija stepped into #TheShadeRoom to say she’s keeping it real about her surgery, period. 👀👀 (SWIPE)

A post shared by The Shade Room (@theshaderoom) on May 10, 2019 at 7:39pm PDT

The "Medicine" singer has been open with her journey to building her self-esteem and has shared why she decided to try surgery. "I do love myself but at the same time, you have to make your self happy," she said in 2017. "You don't have to look in the mirror and see what I see. At the end of the say, I'm the one who has to put up with my self-esteem. I tried to diet and workout but I didn't see any results in my stomach area [because of c-section]."

The topic of surgical enhancement with women of color has been a controversial topic, with many women dying for trying under the table procedures. Standards of beauty have continuously changed with social media and influencers holding relevance over the youth but the singer hasn't promoted the option to go under the knife to her fans.
