Did you hear…?

 Kile Glover, the son of Tameka Raymond, and stepson of R&B singer Usher passed away Saturday morning from heart failure after being taken off of life support. Glover sustained head trauma from a Jet Ski accident on July 6th.  Glover was pronounced brain dead days after being admitted to the hospital. Glover along with a young girl was both floating on an inner tube at Lake Lanier when struck by a family friend on a jet ski.

According to People magazine Georgia officials identified the Jet Ski’s driver as Jeffrey S. Hubbard, reportedly a family friend. He has not been charged with a crime, but an investigation into the incident continues and will determine if charges should be brought. 

 It was also reported that the family was told that no one with such injuries would make a full recovery and nothing could be done to save his life. Other reports mention that Tameka Foster would not be able to pay the bills in order to keep him on life supports.

 According to TMZ, Tameka can only keep Kyle on life-support as long as her insurance company agrees to pay … otherwise she doesn’t have the funds to cover the enormous hospital bills. We’re told the insurance company hasn’t set a specific deadline, but they’ve made it clear … they’re only willing to shell out coverage for a couple months … tops. 

Though I am not a parent, losing a loved one is a heart wrenching and difficult thing to handle and go through. I have lost some very close relatives throughout my lifetime and I understand the hurt and pain of knowing that that person will no longer be in your life. Just remember to keep the Foster/Raymond family in your prayers and remember to cherish the time you have with your loved ones. Life is short, so live it to the fullest.

Well people it looks like another celebrity is having some sort of financial difficulty. The rapper Common who’s real name is Lonnie Lynn may be forced into foreclosure on aChicagocondo he acquired in 2008. No mortgage payment has been made since March and the monthly payment is $2,285

The rapper along with his manager Derek Dudley purchased the place together and now it has been reported that Bank of America wants to sell the property to gain money that they lost with all the missed mortgage payments along with interest, penalties in the amount of $345,389.20

According to TMZ Common’s rep tells TMZ the two sides have reached an agreement … explaining, “The Chicago property is not being foreclosed on. They have reached an agreement to sell the property to an individual with a closing date set for early August. Bank of America is aware of this fact.”

Okay, maybe it is just me but I don’t understand how someone who makes a great deal of money, fall behind on their finances. Even if you are too busy to keep up with your own finances, do like most people do and hire someone for that. What is so hard about paying your bills? People do it everyday. It’s apart of life. People need to realize that you should live within your means and if you can not afford a certain lifestyle then maybe you should consider downsizing.

Looks like Stacey Dash decided to try her hand in something different. Since she did not return for the second season of Single Ladies on VH1 she is now in the process of writing a how-to book.

According to Vibe Vixen “I’m writing a “How To” book. It’ll be about me, my daily ritual and what I do every day to be Stacey Dash. It’ll be about what I’ve done in the past, the mistakes I’ve made and the lessons I’ve learned. The mistakes that I continue to make that drive me to moments of madness. I want to share what I’m going through in real-time to correct, reconcile and reinvent. You see I’m on a quest to live in love and joy come hell or high water. So, I’ll be writing about my future and how I’m moving forward in life using the knowledge I’ve gained from my past and wisdom I’m finding now. Also, I want to teach women and girls how to take care of themselves…and most importantly, how to love themselves.

I am not really sure how much of an impact this how to book will have. In my opinion it sounds more like a book about this is what I have done in my life rather than here you can learn from the things I’ve done in my life. Considering the lifestyle she led is far different from her potential readers, I don’t see this book doing as well as intended.

Not only is she releasing a how to book she is releasing a single in the upcoming week called Life of the Party. It sounds like she has a lot of time on her hands so she will be doing whatever she can in order to keep her name in the press. I hope the single has some potential because if it is anything like her acting career then it may not do so great with the public. The track is due to release July 26th. Let’s see what happens.
