According To Wendy Williams, Kesha Should Have Recorded Dr. Luke's Alleged Abuse

"Unfortunately business is business, and it sounds like it’s fair."

Talk show host Wendy Williams is under fire for comments she made pertaining to the sexual assault case against producer Dr. Luke by pop star Kesha. Williams said on a segment called "Inside Scoop" that Kesha should have filmed Dr. Luke in the act if he did in fact rape and sexually/ emotionally assault her, and that it was fair that the ruling did not go in her favor.

"Unfortunately business is business, and it sounds like it’s fair," she said to Hollywood Life's Chloe Melas. "If everybody complained because somebody allegedly sexually abused them...contracts would be broken all the time...Kesha’s no spring chicken."

"I feel like by the time Kesha works her way out of this mess, people will have forgotten about her. Her foot is not as strong in the music business to begin with [and] to sustain, you know, four more years of this.”

Twitter had a field day, slamming the host for her rude and unsupportive comments.

Kesha filed a lawsuit against Dr. Luke in 2014 for allegations that she was raped, drugged, emotionally abused and sexually assaulted by her longtime producer, and that the years of torment contributed to her eating disorder and rehab stint earlier that year.

Her case was dismissed in court on Friday (Feb. 19), locking Kesha in her six-album contract with Dr. Luke and Sony. She will be able to perform and make music with other producers and writers, but she argues that Dr. Luke and Sony will still be making money off of her music and not promoting her as they should. Celebrities such as Lady Gaga and Wale have rallied behind the "Tik Tok" singer amidst the court frenzy.

Jada Pinkett Smith Opens Up About Past Porn Addiction

Jada Pinkett Smith discussed her previously "unhealthy" addiction to porn on her Facebook Watch show, Red Table Talk.

The actress opened up on Monday's episode (May 20) about her relationship to porn, which she revealed occurred shortly before her relationship with her husband Will Smith began.

"If I was still on my porn game, I'd be able to show you some good porn," she said to her daughter Willow and mother Adrienne shortly before the episode began.

"Back in the day I had a little porn addiction, but I wasn't in a relationship when I had a porn addiction, believe it or not, thank goodness," she said. "...Maybe I’ll say now that I had an unhealthy relationship to porn at one point in my life where I was trying to practice abstinence."

When prompted by her daughter on what brought on this "fixation" to adult entertainment, Jada discussed that it came from an emotional place.

"It was actually like feeling like an emptiness, at least you think it is," she explained. "But it's actually not."

Later on in the episode, the trio brought in a couple who explained how the man's porn addiction nearly cost them their marriage.

Nipsey Hussle's Sister Maintains Custody Of His Daughter

According to reports, Nipsey Hussle's sister Samantha will retain custody of his 10-year-old daughter, Emani.

TMZ says that the late rapper's family believes that Emani's biological mother, Tanisha Foster, is "unfit" to take care of the child. Foster was interviewed briefly by the gossip site's cameras regarding the verdict, where she voiced her disappointment.

"I'm pissed off," she said. When prompted about matters such as visitation rights for the child, Foster did not comment. There is reportedly another hearing in July.

"Tanisha's lawyer, Larry Lewellyn, tells TMZ he's working with Nipsey's family on a visitation schedule that will be in Emani's best interest," reports the site. Emani has been living under the care of Smith since her father's untimely death in late-March.

As VIBE previously reported, a warrant was reportedly sent out for Foster's arrest after she failed to appear in court for a DUI case. "Foster skipped out on her court date on May 15... which resulted in her probation being revoked and a bench warrant for her arrest being issued," we wrote.

According to People, a representative for CiCi confirmed that the superstar will be taking classes at the prestigious Boston college's business school in the Business of Entertainment, Media and Sports program. The school's website notes that "admission to Ciara’s specific program is a 'selective process based on … professional achievement and organizational responsibilities.'"

As we know, attending college is no easy feat, and the "Thinkin' Bout You" singer will reportedly learn to "develop and execute more effective business strategies" as well as “debate and analyze the business and technology trends that are redefining the industry."

BME will reportedly live at the crossroads of entertainment, "where music intersects with Film, Fashion, Technology & Philanthropy."
