Weekend Entertainment Wrap Up #12

Did you hear…?

Were you surprised as I was? R&B singer Usher was awarded primary custody and joint legal custody of his two children Usher Raymond V, 4, and Naviyd Ely Raymond, 3, with his ex wife, Tameka Foster Raymond. This custody battle has been put to rest since the couple ended their relationship in 2008. The new arrangements will begin September 1st.

According to LA Times, Usher had petitioned to have an Aug. 13 hearing delayed on the basis that it would be too stressful for all involved so close to Kile’s passing, according to TMZ. He also said Tameka might get an unfair advantage because of sympathy for a mourning mother. Tameka called foul on that, saying in those court docs that Usher was, in her opinion, faking it — that he’d visited the hospital only once while Kile was on life support and didn’t attend the boy’s July 27 funeral.

I was very surprised with the outcome. Typically, a mother is never separated from their children unless deemed to be an unfit parent for the child. I think that she was not given sole custody due to the recent passing of her 11 year old son, Kile. I am no way saying that his death played a role in her parenting, it just seems like the courts felt the kids needed the parent that can give their full 100% to the children and while grieving, she is not able to do so at the moment. It has been reported that Foster Raymond still has some custodial rights. Maybe at some point in time the two will be able to come together and reach an agreement best suited for their children.

It happened again, and this time it’s been confirmed. Shaquille O’Neal and Nicole “Hoopz” Alexander are no longer a couple. Alexander reached out to The Boston Globe last Thursday to let the world know that she and O’Neal decided to end their almost 2 year relationship.

According to MediaTakeOut last week Hoopz and Shaq got INTO IT publicly. Here’s what happened. Shaq and Hoopz were trying to go into Orlando Metro Gymnastics, a popular gym that specializes in teaching woman’s gymnastics in Orlando – where the couple live. ell the gym WOULD NOT ALLOW Hoopz into the gym, because they ONLY train girls under 18, for insurance purposes. Well Hoopz SPAZZED OUT – yelling at the gym owners, using the most VULGAR curse words – all while the little girls being trained looked on. Hoopz claimed that she was trying to “train for the Olympic team.” LOL!! Shaq, to his credit was MORTIFIED. He PULLED Hoopz out of the building and took her back to the car. But then Hoopz turned her RAGE towards him. She claimed that Shaq “wasn’t riding with her” and started calling him a “p*ssy.” But then . . she went THERE. According to an EYEWITNESS, Hoopz allegedly called him a “little d*ck n*gga.” Again . . . to his credit, Shaq didn’t go OCHOCINCO on her. He stayed calm.

This story sounds like a grown woman who was in the midst of having a temper tantrum and the one person that was with her, he decided to take her aggression out on him. She really hit below the belt with that shot she took at O’Neal. One thing you do not do as a woman is talk about a man’s “manhood”.

That is probably the worst thing you can say to a guy. It was mentioned that she wanted to start Gymnastics lessons because she was inspired by Gabby Douglas and her recent accomplishment at the 2012 London Olympics. I can understand the want for lessons; however she is a grown woman and acted like a child for no reason.


Mama said knock you out and that is what LL Cool J did. It was reported that on Wednesday August 22, 2012 a man by the name of Jonathan Kirby broke into theL.A.home of LL Cool J and suffered a broken nose, jaw and ribs in the process. It was reported that while the rapper and his family was sleeping in their home, the security alarm sounded at 1 a.m. which made him react to protect his family.

According to CNN, Prosecutors charged Kirby with first degree burglary as a “third striker,” which means he could face 38 years to life in prison if convicted, Gibbons said. They are asking that bail for Kirby be set at $1.1 million. Kirby was previously convicted of voluntary manslaughter in Dallas, Texas, in 1988. He also has auto theft, first degree burglary and a petty theft conviction in Los Angeles on his record, Gibbons said. Arraignment for the suspect is not yet set, because he is still hospitalized for treatment of injuries inflicted by LL Cool J when he “physically detained” him, she said.

It also has been reported that Kirby could get the maximum sentence of 38 years to life if convicted because he violated California’s three strikes law. Arraignment for the suspect has not been set yet due to him still being in the hospital recovering from his injuries.

It was also mentioned that the rapper will not be charged with the injuries inflicted upon Kirby. I wouldn’t understand why that would be a thought. Kirby invaded LL Cool J’s home and privacy with the intent to do some damage and possible harm. There is no reason why charges upon LL Cool J would be considered. He did what any man would do to protect his family and that is very much respected.
