According to This Series Trailer, Toni Braxton Is Really Engaged

Say what, now? 

Toni Braxton and Birdman sparked rumors regarding a possible engagement and secret wedding earlier this year. But despite the various reports, they have adamantly denied that there is anything serious going on. But WE Tv recently dropped a trailer for the upcoming season of Braxton Family Vales, and according to the clip, Toni Braxton is singing a much different tune.

In the 30-second preview, the "Unbreak My Heart" singer makes a major announcement to her sisters regarding her relationship status. "I'm engaged," she exclaims, baring her huge canary-colored rock. The clip then cuts to following Tamar and Vince's reported divorce.

The trailer comes shortly after Braxton appeared on Good Morning America, where she told Robin Roberts that she was not engaged or married to Birdman. Instead, she stated that they were just collaborators. "Well, you know, I am not married, unlike my big mouth sister Tamar has been saying everywhere. I’m definitely not married," she originally stated during the Jan. 2018 interview. "We’re working together."

Obviously, the clip didn't go more into detail, so it could just be misleading viewers in order to build excitement around the season. So, you'll just have to tune into the newest season of Braxton Family Values in Mar. 2018 to find out the truth. In the meantime, check out the preview below.

Rihanna Is Suing Her Father

Rihanna has had enough. Riri is reportedly suing her dad, Ronald Fenty, for using the Fenty brand to launch a talent agency and solicit money without her permission, TMZ reports.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, the ANTI singer claims her father launched a talent development company in 2017 called Fenty Entertainment. The problem – Rih trademarked "Fenty" years ago so that she could use it for her blossoming businesses.

The lawsuit claims Ronald is profiting from the reputation that was already created with Fenty Beauty and her apparel lines. Additionally, the docs allege that her dad falsely advertised themselves as her reps to solicit millions from fans.

The entrepreneur claims that her dad made $15 million in false bookings for shows throughout Latin America and attempted to trademark "Fenty" to use with resort boutique hotels.

While it may seem extreme to file a lawsuit against her own bloodline, Rih reportedly sent multiple cease and desist letters to him before she was forced to take full legal action.

Rihanna is asking a judge to place an injunction on Ronald using the name Fenty and to compensate her for the damages.

John Boyega Launches Record Label To Oversee Soundtrack For Upcoming Movie

Great things are coming from John Boyega. According to Deadline, the actor will be executive producing a crime-thriller God Is Good alongside Josephine Rose (who was an executive producer for Slaughterhouse Rulez), a vein of Prisoners and City Of God as described by the movie's producers. While overseeing the film's major and minor details, the Star Wars: The Force Awakens actor has decided to open a record label dedicated to supervising the movie's soundtrack.

Boyega's newly founded record label is called UpperRoom Records. Tasked with more than overseeing the picture's tracklist, the label is expected to deliver emerging African artists like YoungstaCPT, who is set to feature on the project. The record label's team will include VP of Production, Yara Shaikh, and Stefan Wade, Head of A&R.

“I’m thrilled to be teaming once again with Josephine Rose on such a powerful and important story that explores themes of fathers and fatherhood, toxic masculinity, race and faith in a community that has become trapped in an unending cycle of violence and racial oppression, and where sometimes it seems for men that violence is the only way of achieving power," the 26-year-old said.

Kelly Rowland Says Her Highly-Anticipated Project Is "Definitely Coming"

Six years ago, Kelly Rowland released her fourth studio album titled Talk a Good Game. The project boasted hit singles like "Kisses Down Low" and the transparent "Dirty Laundry." Now, the Houston native is preparing to release a project that'll surely satisfy fans' patient earbuds.

In an interview with Billboard, Rowland shared her hopes for putting out a new body of work and the pressure that she's encountered since she's been in the studio. "This is by far the longest, most pressure-filled process ever, only because I know what it's supposed to be and I have been so hard on myself. I know it," she said. "And it's the first time I've said it out loud. I've been extremely hard on myself. But it's definitely coming, and I'm more so excited about this project than anything else."

The news follows the recent release of Rowland's "Kelly" track, which was met with critical acclaim in November 2018. In addition to preparing the release of new music, the "Motivation" singer discussed fans' wish for a Destiny's Child reunion. The rumors have been fueled by social media photographs of Rowland with either Beyonce or Michelle or all three, especially during Beyonce's past Coachella performance. But Rowland assures readers that it's not what they think.

"It's so funny. I guess every time people see us together, they just see music but I see sisterhood, and that's what we are and that's what me, her, Michelle [Williams] and Solange and I are. People see us all together, they immediately think music. I'm like, no. Just family." As Rowland previously mentioned Solange, she hopes to one day work with her again.

"I'm a huge fan," she said. "I love her writing and how detailed and particular she is. I always wanted to figure out how the heck she has so many different layers of harmonies when she is constructing these vocals, and it's so complex but simple. It's genius. It's the genius in her genius mind that she has in there." One of the last times the pair collaborated was on Rowland's "Simply Deep" track off her debut solo album of the same name. Solange also penned a few songs off the same project. Fast forward to 2016, and Rowland's vocals were featured on Solange's iconic A Seat at the Table.
