Kehlani Addresses Fall Out With Kamaiyah And Keyshia Cole

The beef apparently stems from a song.

Kehlani is defending herself amid friction with fellow Bay Area natives, Kamaiyah and Keshia Cole.  Earlier in the week, Kamaiyah confirmed on Instagram Live that she and Kehlani are no longer friends, and although some fans assumed that it had something to do with YG, the beef revolves around their “All Me” collaboration, which also featured Cole.

Kehlani responded in a series of deleted tweets where she called out Kamaiyah for threatening her life. Kamaiyah went back on Instagram Live and apologized for threatening Kehlani, but accused her of colorism.

“I was okay with not ever putting any of this out. She [Kehlani] decides that she's gonna put out the record and she takes me off, and leaves Keyshia,” Kamaiyah explained. “The problem was, I feel like it should've never came out and that's where our beef stems from. It was our song, we did a project all of this and that I'm 'upset' and I'm 'trying to use her.' What did I use you for? If anything I was genuine, I loved you, if anything I still considered you a sister. My problem came from the was on some, 'Oh you're black, your ghetto, you're not tasteful.”

Kehlani swiftly denied the colorism claims. “Please do not take this bold a** lie and [f**cking] run with it. Ya’ll KNOW this don’t even SOUND RIGHT and this could really hurt my fans…hurt my daughter, hurt my family members,” she wrote in another deleted tweet. “Come on now. This is where I draw the line. I’m just disheartened as hell [because] it really IS always some drama [with] me. I don’t know what I attract or what I be doing. I respond to a hit on my head with love and I got slandered further. All I do is make music and take care of my family. I got the same friends I always had.”

Meanwhile, Cole revealed that she and Kehlani are no longer on good terms because they “didn’t see eye-to-eye on a lot of things,” but she didn’t rule out a potential reconciliation. “Anything is possible as far as being cool again, but I just don’t think friendship,” said Cole.

Kehlani responded to a clip of the video posted on the Shade Room’s Instagram account. “This is just sad and lame,” she wrote. “I have screenshots of texts of Keyshia [apologizing] to my manager saying she just felt embarrassed about how she looked in the video. Apologizing to my manager saying she’s just emotional. That’s why she isn’t in the video. I lost money on that. I still look up to her and am honored to have her on the song, there are so many videos of me covering her songs on YouTube since I was little. I have screenshots of me telling her she’s an idol of mine. This is all super sad.”

In other news, Kehlani dropped a music video for “F&MU,” and is readying the release of her, It Was Good Until It Wasn’t, album next week.

Tory Lanez Sued For Alleged Attack In Miami Nightclub

Tory Lanez is facing legal trouble over an alleged altercation that went down inside Miami’s LIV nightclub last year. Christopher “Prince” Harty, an up-and-coming artist and Miami promoter who appeared on Love & Hip-Hop: Miami claims that Lanez attacked him last November.

The onetime reality star alleges that Lanez, along with his entourage and security team, punched and attacked him in the nightclub. According to reports, Prince claims to have suffered blunt force trauma to his head, neck, and chest, in addition to contusions, bruises and anxiety, as a result of the incident. He is suing for unspecified damages.

“They backed me into a corner, and once I was there, they started stomping on me, jumping me,” he recalled to NBC Miami.

He believes that the friction stemmed from an Instagram post about music. “They felt that I was insinuating that they stole the record from me, and I was just like, no, I would never do that, that was never my intention. I had no issue with him at all.”

A portion of the incident was captured on cellphone video. Prince stated that he knew Lanez prior to the run-in, and helped get him into clubs before.

His attorney, Marwan Porter of Porter Law Firm, called the violent incident “a chronic problem” with Lanez who is accused of shooting Megan Thee Stallion in July. The 28-year-old recording artist has yet to publicly address either incident.

Cardi B Opens Up About Filing For Divorce From Offset

Cardi B took to Instagram Live on Friday (Sept. 18) to air out a few things about filing for divorce from Offset.

The Bronx rapper made it clear that she didn’t file for divorce as a publicity stunt to promote her upcoming album. “I’m not doing it for clout and on top of that I don’t need stunts to sell music,” she said. “I’m not [trying to] brag but don’t ever say I’m doing anything for clout. My first album is three-times platinum and I didn’t need no stunts to do that. My [“Wap”] single is no. 1 worldwide why would I need stunts to sell music? I don’t need stunts — [especially] when it comes to family — to sell anything, so don’t play yourself.”

As for the reason for the divorce filing, the estranged couple simply grew apart. “Nothing crazy out of this world happened, sometimes people really do grow apart. I been with this man for four years. I have a kid with this man, I have a household with this man…sometimes you’re just tired of the arguments and the build up. You get tired sometimes and before something happens, you leave.”

“I just wanna' be a free bird,” Cardi said after questioning whether people secretly want infidelity to be the reason for the split.

“I am the f**king clout,” she added. “I never needed anything. I never needed no stunts to sell sh*t.Why would I need anything to sell my next album?”

Speaking of the new album, Cardi has been indecisive about choosing her next single because “WAP” did so well. “That means that my second single has to be even better.”

Towards the end of her venting session, Cardi reiterated that she’s focusing on her work, and revealed that she's starting new business for her daughter Kulture.
