Mary J. Blige's Ex-Husband's Daughter Calls Him A 'F**k N***a' On Instagram

Oop!

Mary J. Blige’s ex-husband Kendu Isaacs recently caught the ire of his own flesh and blood in a recently-deleted Instagram post. According to a screen grab uploaded by The Shade Room, Isaacs’ daughter Briana let her father have it, calling him out for not putting his family first, and also dubbing him a “bum” and a “f**k n***a.”

“Legit only have 3 pictures of us together,” she wrote. “I honestly made EVERY excuse for you. Every single one….But the reality is….YOU’RE garbage. Raven told me to stop f**king with you, my mom said it, just about every friend I ever had…Because dealing with you in any capacity leaves me broken. You put p***ies and paper before your own f**king child! But invite me around for appearances and sh*t, right? Lol. Ur a bum!”

“I had tell the world you were being a f**k n***a for you to help me when I needed it! And I DON’T ASK YOU FOR SH*T! Bum… I hope that when you sleep tonight… And every night…. Your dreams are as F**KING PAINFUL, TRAUMATIC (sic), LONELY AND F**KING AWFUL as every minute I spent in the world without you. F**k you, dirtbag.”

In June of this year, Ms, Mary J. and Isaacs’ divorce became official after a messy legal battle and court drama. In Sept. 2017, Blige discussed the divorce with Variety, where she alluded to him being “con artist” who was obsessed with her fortune.

“When you come out of something like that, you realize you were never the one,” she said. “There was someone else that was his queen. I got played. I got suckered.”

Gina Rodriguez Issues Second Apology For Using The N-Word On Instagram

Gina Rodriguez has issued a second apology for her use of the n-word on social media.

On Tuesday (Oct. 15), the actress recited lyrics to The Fugees' 1996 single "Ready or Not" and posted it to her Instagram Story. Instead of using a portion of the song that didn't have the n-word in it, Rodriguez mumbled the n-word before snickering.

After critics pointed out her use of the word, she hopped back on social media to issue a sarcastic apology. “ I just wanted to reach out and apologize," she said. "I am sorry. I am sorry if I offended anyone by singing along to The Fugees, to a song I love, that I grew up on. I love Lauryn Hill, and I really am sorry if I offended you.”

Her second apology was more detailed as she somewhat took accountability for her actions. “The word I sang carries with it a legacy of hurt and pain that I cannot even imagine,” Rodriguez wrote. “I feel so deeply protective and responsible to the community of color but I have let this community down. I have some serious learning and growing to do and I am so deeply sorry for the pain I have caused.”

But this didn't do much to smudge the pattern she has demonstrated towards conversations about blackness and identity. Critics returned to the many times in the past where the Jane The Virgin actress seemed to demean black issues. When Black Panther mania took over 2017, Rodriguez attempted to use the history-making moment to pivot to a demand for more Latinx actors in the Marvel and DC worlds.

“Marvel and DC are killing it in inclusion and women but where are the Latinos?! Asking for a friend...” Rodriguez said in a deleted tweet. Another moment where the actress took over a conversation about black women happened during an interview on September 2018. As Rodriguez and Smallfoot co-star Yara Shahidi spoke with entertainment journalist Blogxilla, he expressed how Shahidi was an inspiration to “so many Black women,” including his black daughters. Rodgriguez chimed in saying, “So many women" which came off as an erasure of the topic of black women.

It all came to a head just a few months later when Rodriguez falsely claimed black actresses make more money than other women of color during Net-a-Reporter's roundtable discussion.

“I get so petrified in this space talking about equal pay, especially when you look at the intersectional aspect of it,” Rodriguez said. “Where white women get paid more than black women, and black women get paid more than Asian women, Asian women get paid more than Latina women, and it’s like a very scary space to step into.”

At the time, Modern Family's Sophia Vergara (who is Colombian) was famously the highest-paid actress on television followed by Kery Washington. After a tearful apology on Sway in the Morning for her comments, she pointed out how the black community has always been "family" to her and pointed out how her father is considered "dark-skinned" in Puerto Rico.

Lmaooooo @ Gina Rodriguez's "dark skinned" dad. Help. https://t.co/aBWhiUAfoc

I know Gina Rodriguez can be dense af but I don't get the selective outrage.

Cypress hill, J.lo, Fat Joe, Tekashi 69, lil pump and even Eminem have said the N-word a couple of times but she isn't allowed to say it even if she's singing along to a fugees track? https://t.co/hGeNBTTuCd

Travis Scott May Need Surgery After Dislocating Knee On Stage: Report

After falling during his performance at Rolling Loud New York last weekend, Travis Scott could be going under the knife. The “Sicko Mode” rapper reportedly dislocated his knee from falling on stage and may have to undergo surgery.

According to TMZ, Scott visited an orthopedic doctor in Los Angeles this week where he learned of the injury. Scott was given the option of surgery, or waiting to see if his knee heel on its own. Reportedly, the 28-year-old rap star and sports fan would rather have surgery so that he can go back to playing basketball comfortably. In 2018, the Houston native played in NBA player James Harden’s celebrity basketball game, and collaborated with Jordan Brand to introduce the Air Jordan XXXIII sneaker, with help from a group of high school ball players.

In more personal news, Scott and his girlfriend, Kylie Jenner split earlier in the month after two years of dating, and welcoming a daughter together. News of the split followed rumors of Scott allegedly cheating on Jenner. Scott took to his Instagram Story last week to put the cheating rumors to rest.

“[It's] really affecting when u see false things said about you,” Scott wrote. “Once again these false stories about me cheating are just simply not true. Focusing on life, music and family at this moment is what's real.”
