Leslie Jones Slams Kevin Hart And Katt Williams: "None Of Those Ni**as Put Me On"

Jones slammed both of the comedians for taking credit for her career and Hart's statements about women in comedy. 

Leslie Jones isn't here for anyone taking credit for her career. The Saturday Night Live star decided to slam both Kevin Hart and Katt Williams have subtly credited themselves for her and other black female comedians success.

Speaking to Bossip Friday (Sept. 21), Jones didn't hold back when it came to Hart's comments. That same day, Hart appeared on The Breakfast Club, where he slammed Williams for discrediting Night School co-star Tiffany Haddish's brand of comedy. He also alluded that comedians like Jones, Luenell and Melanie Comarcho have found success due to their appearances on Williams' various comedy specials.

“So when you say Tiffany Haddish doesn’t deserve or isn’t really a comedian, and these other women have worked hard, which they have,” Hart said, adding: “Shoutouts to Melanie Comarcho, shoutouts to Luenell, shoutouts to Leslie Jones, who are all underneath the umbrella of Katt Williams.”

“Real talk both of them ni***s need to keep my name out they mouth unless they using it to eat my p***y real talk," Jones said. None of those ni***s put me on or any woman. While he talking about Katt what did he do to put women on he didn’t help females they weren’t on his tour f**k that ni**a!!"

She did give credit to Williams, who has shared his platform with Jones in the past. She also said that if anyone should take credit for her success, it would be Chris Rock and writer-comedian Neal Brennan (Chappelle's Show, All That, Inside Amy Schumer).  Jones also questioned why she and other female comedians are being name-dropped in Hart and Williams' so-called beef when female comedians are never treated with the same respect as their peers.

"Women have never had it good," she explained. "At least Katt put women on his tour or shows. How many shows back in the day didn’t have a woman on them? Kevin that motherf**ker told me one time I would never make it. Nobody is telling the truth! Everyone needs to shut the f**k up before I tell you what's really real and they all know I know. I haven’t said sh*t about anyone and if I do I keep it real and respectful and honest. What’s upsetting me is anybody saying anything. Shut the f**k up and do your f***ing job cause this ain’t it."

Williams or Hart has yet to respond to Jones.

A Billie Holiday Documentary Is Currently In The Works

A documentary about beloved jazz great Billie Holiday--appropriately titled Billie--is in the works and will reportedly feature new interviews from the icon's contemporaries.

According to The Hollywood Reporter James Erskine will helm the film and has received support from the successor to Billie Holiday's estate, Concord. The film will follow Holiday's life through the eyes of 1970's journalist Linda Lipnack Kuehl.

More than 200 hours of interviews with Charles Mingus, Sarah Vaughn, Tony Bennett, Count Basie will be featured, as well as some of Holiday's classmates, her step-parents, her cellmate, her drug dealer, her pimp and even the FBI agent who arrested her will be in the documentary.

Kuehl died in 1979 without completing her book about the "Strange Fruit" singer. Her interviews will be seen for the first time in the forthcoming documentary.

Holiday, real name, Eleanora Fagan, died in 1959. Her life was brought to the big screen in 1972 in the now beloved film Lady Sings the Blues, starring Diana Ross and Billy Dee Williams.

"We are thrilled to be working with the creative team of James Erskine and New Black Films, who have taken great care to produce a documentary that honors the life and work of Billie Holiday in an exciting, genre-defying way," she said in a statement.

Michael Rapaport Walks Back Meek Mill "Trash" Comments

Michael Rapaport clearly doesn't want the smoke with Meek Mill because the comedian has seemingly taken back the "trash" comments he made about the "Going Bad" artist while speaking to Sway Calloway on his radio show.

Meek Mill, great story. Great look. Trash rapper. Sorry

— MichaelRapaport (@MichaelRapaport) February 18, 2019

On Tuesday (Feb. 19), Rapaport further explained the comments that created beef between himself and the Philly rapper.

"I should not have used that word," the 48-year-old said, reiterating past comments about Mill's career. "He's absolutely not a trash rapper...It was wrong and it wasn't the right word. He's not a trash rapper, I can't say it. I wish I could take that word back. I'm harsh with my hip-hop opinions and it's the wrong word. It's not valid, it's not true, it's not reasonable. It was a stupid word to use."

Rapaport went on to defend the other comments he made on Twitter about Mill reminding listeners that he noticed the "Dreams and Nightmares" rapper's evolution in hip-hop and his importance to the community.

Previously, Rapaport offered his opinions about Meek Mill, calling his lack of response to Drake during their infamous beef "wack" and insinuating that he had no skill.

Slick Woods Celebrates Mom's Release from Prison

After the birth of her son Saphir in September of 2018, and making headlines after walking Rihanna's Savage x Fenty A/W Show during New York Fashion Week while in labor, Slick Woods has more reasons to celebrate now that her mother has been released from prison after 17 years.

"Cried a lot," the 5'10 model wrote on her Instagram post featuring her mother. "Me n' mom, fresh out after 17 years in prison."

Cried a lot 😳 Me n mom, fresh out after 17 years of prison 😴

A post shared by @ slickwoods on Feb 18, 2019 at 6:45pm PST

Since the age of four Woods was raised by her grandmother between Los Angeles and Minneapolis, after her mother was sentenced to prison for manslaughter. Unfortunately, Woods life at the age of seven shifted bumpier after her grandmother divorced her husband and the two found themselves spending time in cars and motels. The unofficial face of Fenty eventually became homeless and was on track to what many felt was the same path as her formerly incarcerated mother.

"I was in a place where I didn't believe in anything, so I was susceptible to evil energy," Woods said in an interview with E.S. Magazine in 2018. "I'm so easily turned. It's not something I'm proud of," she continued. "And when everyone in the world is telling you that you're going to be just like your mother, and then you're behind bars..."

Thankfully for Woods, after a stint in jail of two to three months at the age of 18, she was able to choose a different path for herself, and a year later she modeled for Kanye West in Yeezy, allowing her to one day provide for her mother once she was released from prison.

"Being a gang member, everyone expected her to not be the best mum," Woods said in an interview with Elle Magazine back in 2018. "But my mum was very hands-on with me as a child. My mummy read to me in the womb," she said. "And she's proud because she knows that everybody expected me to be exactly what she was. She went to prison when she was 19. I became a model at 19. And I can take care of my mother when she gets out."
