AFTERMATH: Tameka Raymond Files For Emergency Custody Of Kids, Says “They’re IN DANGER” + Terrence Howard’s Ex Shows Picture Proof Of The Black Eye She Says Terrence Gave Her

Tameka Raymond wasted no time in taking action in response to the most recent scare involving one of her & Usher‘s sons.  Check out why she filed for custody, plus Michelle Ghent‘s new picture proof showing bruises she claims came from Terrence Howard punching her….

After losing her son Kile just a year ago in a water related accident (a jet ski & tube freak accident), Tameka feels her two youngest sons’ lives are now in danger after Usher V (pictured above) ended up in ICU after a pool accident at Usher’s house.

Usher has primary full custody of the couple’s two boys, Usher V and Naviyd, which he won after the divorce settlement and after Kile’s death.

Now, Tameka is looking to reverse that after Cinco got his arm caught in the pool drain and had to be helped to breath again via CPR done by AV workers who were inside the house.  Today, Usher & Tameka were by Cinco’s side in ICU and the doctors say he will be OK.  But Mama Tameka doesn’t feel comfortable releasing the boys back into Usher’s custody as the incident happened at the pool at his home.  Especially because she has beef with Usher’s aunt who was supposed to be watching the boys.

TMZ reports:

Usher’s ex-wife has just filed legal docs asking for an emergency hearing later this week … to wrestle child custody away from him, on grounds he’s creating a dangerous environment … TMZ has learned.

Tameka Raymond filed the docs in Fulton County, Georgia, claiming Usher is abdicating his parental responsibilities by letting other people care for their 2 kids — people who she claims are not on the ball.

Can’t say we really blame her for filing these docs.  The aunt in question is also the person Tameka previously accused of letting a stalker into the house while Usher & Tameka were married.

And if you were wondering if Terrence Howard’s ex wife was going to show some receipts with her story of allegedly getting beat down during a family vacay to Costa Rica with Terrence & his kids recently, she did.

TMZ obtained pics of Michelle Ghent showing her black eye and bruised arm that she claims all came at the fists of The Butler actor Terrence Howard.

Michelle did receive her temporary restraining order she filed for Tuesday in court, and she maintains Terrence threatened her with a knife and physically abused her during an argument.

The site reports:

Michelle Ghent alleges the brutality occurred during a trip last week to Costa Rica. She says the fight started after she told Terrence she had no interest in firing up a relationship with him — they divorced in May.

Michelle says after Terrence hit her, he glared at her and walked over to a bedside table where he kept 2 curved knives — 4-6 inches in length.

Michelle says she panicked and then pepper sprayed him. At that point she claims Terrence knocked her down and then kicked her repeatedly in the head.

In addition to the black eye, Michelle says she suffered contusions and swelling.

And, she says, he referred to a prior warning he had given her on a trip to Bora Bora — threatening to kill her.

Well this explains where the pepper spray comes into play that Terrence says Michelle attacked him with FIRST.  he also maintains he never touched her.  But based on these images, someone did.  Michelle says it was Terrence and he sucker punched her dead in the face, grabbed her up by the arm and caused contusions and swelling after he also threw her up against a wall.

Sad situation.

So….Singer Christine Vest Just Gave Birth To Dwight Howard’s Baby…..& Snatched Kim Kardashian’s Maternity Ward Suite!

 photo ScreenShot2013-06-20at103126AM_zps6a613e4c.png

Dwight Howard is a baby’s daddy for the 3rd (or 4th) time.  There’s at least 2 other women said to have or are about to have his baby. 


As of yesterday, singer Christine Vest…who plays the innocent Holy Roller card much like Dwight….just became his newest baby mama.  Deets inside on how Royce Reed called them out, and how Christine prevented Kim K. from getting the maternity suite she wanted…

 photo ScreenShot2013-06-20at103056AM_zpsb6ab128e.png

While fitness queen Hope Alexis was being exposed on the internet streets back in February for secretly having Dwight Howard’s baby girl (who is now a toddler), there were rumblings that Dwight had another baby on the way with his secret girlfriend Christine Vest.

And it looks like all is true.  Neither Christine nor Dwight have confirmed they are dating or have dated (if anything, Christine has issued some subtle denials). And all of a sudden, a few weeks ago, she posts the above pic of the twosome hugging with the caption–"My favorite place in the world."


 photo ScreenShot2013-06-20at105559AM_zps3a93732b.png

And yesterday, Dwight’s original baby mama, Royce Reed, blasted the two on Twitter with the above pic.   First, Christine tweeted, "Im happier than i’ve ever been."

Then Royce responded while trying to sound nice & congratulatory–while we all know she was doing nothing but being low key messy.  She said, "Congratulations to Dwight & Christine on the birth of their baby boy! Bray has a baby brother!….I hear wedding bells in the future!!!" 

Neither Christine nor Dwight said anything publicly about the baby….and we ALL know Dwight & Royce do not have a good relationship after he tried to sue her multiple times and was one cause of her getting kicked off "Basketball Wives".  So, of course, her message sounded like subtle shade. 

Still, Royce says she was only being nice, "Why some of y’all trynna make drama out of a joyous occasion? If u found a congratulatory message messy check yoself! I’m blunt I don’t sub!

Yeah…OK Royce.

 photo ScreenShot2013-06-20at103240AM_zps4c939d4c.png

For several months now, the guitar playing singer (who is like Taylor Swift meets gospel) hasn’t posted many NEW pics of herself.  Her fans have gotten suspicious and have asked questions that she’s avoided.  But it looks like the reason is INDEED because she’s pregnant…out of wedlock. 

Despite Dwight never acknowledging any of his kids outside of Braylon (his son with Royce), it’s pretty clear this dude is slinging his piece around anything he can with no protection.  And continues to do so 3+ baby mamas later. 

Hope he gets the NBA contract he wants next season because this child support is about to get mad expensive…

BONUS: TMZ reports that Kim Kardashian didn’t get the maternity VIP suite she wanted at Cedars Sinai Medical Center (she DID deliver 5 weeks early afterall).  And it’s all because Dwight’s baby mama (who the site did not name but we know it’s Christine) was occupying the suite.  Dwight blocks on the court…and off.

SPORTS: Kobe Bryant’s Parents Swear He’s LYING, Say He GAVE The Memorabilia To His Mom

 photo ScreenShot2013-05-13at40934PM.png

Kobe Bryant’s parent have filed their own paperwork claiming their son GAVE his memorabilia to them!  Find out what they said inside….


We suspect that Pamela Bryant, the mother of basketball legend Kobe Bryant, didn’t have a great Mother’s Day yesterday.  We told you earlier about Kobe’s legal teaming putting the smack down on Goldin Auction and preventing his mom from selling off his memorablia.  Now, we’ve got the deets on the situation from the perspective of Pamela, Kobe’s dad Joe and even Kobe’s grandma and sister.  Talk about some family drama…

Apparently, the court documents filed by Kobe insinuate that Kobe’s mom stole the items from Kobe’s home.  But in their defense, both Pam and Joe filed sworn declarations that Kobe willingly gave the items to Pamela over the years.

Joe specifically said that over the years, Kobe had given Pamela a number of items and said, "Here mom, these are for you." And Pam insists she never took anything without permission.  And since he willingly gave them to her….she has a right to sell them.  Also, Kobe’s grandmother got dragged into the drama filed a declaration supporting Pamela.

Oh, and there’s another sibling.  But she supports Kobe.  His sister, Sharia Washington says their mother has been conspiring to sell Kobe’s items for a long time and wants to profit from his stardom.  Damn homie.

We guess the family won’t be getting together for fireworks on the 4th of July….unless it’s in the court room. 

For now….the auction is still postpooned. 



President Obama Shares PARENTING ADVICE He Gave Jay-Z, Says Beyonce & Michelle Are “Good Friends”

During an Ohio campaign stop, President Obama opened up about his budding friendship with music royalty Jay-Z and Beyonce and shared the fatherly advice he offered Hov.  Find out what he said inside….


While stomping through the swing state of Ohio, President Obama stopped by Cleveland’s hip hop station Z107.9 to maybe sway a few listeners his way.

During the interview, he talked about becoming friends with The Carters (who raised $ 4M for his campaign last month). 

"I’ve gotten to know these guys over the first several years.  They’re good people. Beyonce could not be sweeter to Michelle and the girls. So they’re good friends. We talk about the same things I talk about with all my friends."

And the Prez is also a fan of the couple’s music.  When asked about his fave Jay-Z song he said, “You know, I gotta say I go with some other stuff like ‘My 1st Song,’ which just kinda keeps me steady.  It’s a great song. It reminds you that you always have to stay hungry.”

He also offered Jay-Z some advice about being father to Blue Ivy.  "I made sure that Jay-Z was helping Beyonce out [with the baby], and not leaving it all with Beyonce and the mother-in-law."

And for voters who are still on the fence about who they’d like to run the country, President Obama drove home his accomplishments to the listeners,

"Think about all the things we’ve already gotten done.  We saved an auto industry, saved a million jobs throughout Ohio and Michigan, we’ve gotten health care reform, we have made sure that we expanded student loan programs and Pell Grant programs; so a lot of stuff has gotten done, but we have a lot more to do. My hope is we have a decisive victory in this election, that Republicans, who spent a lot of time worry about trying to beat me, will start focusing on trying to improve the country."

Robin Thicke: I WRECKED MY PORSCHE! And The Cops Gave Me A Ride….

Oh snap!  Singer Robin Thicke had to hitch a ride with LAPD last night…all because he wrecked his Porsche.  Peep the pics and deets inside…

The "Love After War" singer wasn’t riding in a cop car for weed charges…again.  This time, it’s because his black convertible Porsche got into a bad collision with another motorist on Sunset Blvd. Tuesday night.

According to reporters on the scene, the smash buckled a rear wheel of Robin’s Porsche 911 Cabriolet, leaving it stranded in the middle of the highway. Cops took down Robin’s story–and he seemed to be in good spirits and smoking his ciggie despite the drama–as a tow truck driver prepared to take his whip.

So the helpful officers gave dude a lift home.  Well it must be easy to smile when you make millions a year, despite your tax issues, and can easily replace your $ 100K+ ride.

TWEETS IS WATCHING: Memphitz CLAPS BACK Over K. Michelle’s Abuse ALLEGATIONS…Says He GAVE Her All Her Fakes ASSets

Rapper Memphitz recently tweeted a comment that many folks think is a veiled attack at reality star K. Michelle over her abuse allegations.  Find out what he tweeted and get her response inside….

When K. Michelle broke down in tears on "L&HH: Atlanta" about an "unnamed" music producer who crushed her dreams and physically assaulted her, many folks pegged the mystery man to be her former manager Memphitz.  Especially since she’s called him out by name in the past via Twitter.

And although neither have named names this time around, both Memphitz and K. Michelle have posted tweets which appear to be subliminal attacks on one another about the allegations.  See the exchanges here: 


Damn!  He had to call out her fake boobs, ass and teeth though?  In addition to his tweet, Memphitz also attached a picture of Pinocchio.  Ouch!


This battle will indeed get even more ugly.  We’ll be watching…..

IS IT REAL? Beyonce’s Mama Says She NEVER Gave Post-Baby Interview…Magazine Says They Have Proof She Did!

We told you earlier about "UK STAR" Magazine claiming to have Beyonce’s first post-baby interview, and we said it wouldn’t be the first time a publication staged a fake interview with a celeb.  And now there are reports from Beyonce’s camp that the interview was indeed fake. Deets inside….

According to Mama Tina, the interview reported by "UK Star" about Beyonce and Blue Ivy was fake. 

Ms. Knowles told "Access Hollywood" that the article was, “Completely made up.”  Beyonce’s rep also told media yesterday there was no truth to the interview.

But it doesn’t end there, because the UK Star editor is standing by their “world exclusive first interview” saying,

“It is not made up or fictitious at all.  We bought the interview from a reporter in the U.S. who conducted the interview with Beyonce before the birth. The reporter then obtained the ‘top-up’ info after the birth, which we believe to have been signed off by a girl on her LSM [labor service management] team.”

So Mama Tina says it didn’t happen.  But the editor swears it did.  It wouldn’t be the first time a reporter made up an interview.  Nor would it be the first time a celeb back tracked on something they said.  So……who do you believe?

Complaints Against Hospital Where Beyonce Gave Birth Dismissed

After debunking accusations that Blue Ivy was named after the spawn of Satan, other allegations against the newborn are being dismissed as well. The Health Department has cleared Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City of two complaints that claimed Beyonce and Jay-Z‘s security hindered other parents from seeing and caring for their own babies.

The New York Daily News reports that the health department received and reviewed two formal complaints against Lenox Hill, both for mistreatment of patients during Bey’s hospital stay. State Health Department spokesman Jeffrey Gordon announced that both complaints were reviewed and dismissed. While Gordon was mum on further details, a source told the news that both complaints were far from credible. In fact, one complaint was from someone who wasn’t even in the hospital at the time — he was filing a complaint over what he read in the newspaper!

The state’s findings corroborate Lenox Hill’s own internal investigation issued by the hospital’s executive director, Frank Danza. Danza claimed that while certain extra security measures were taken to ensure the Carters’ privacy (including covering security cameras with tape and bringing in extra guards), he hasn’t heard any complaints about the situation. Danza spoke with about half of the new parents present over the weekend, claiming none of them said they were prevented from seeing their babies. “They did communicate that they noticed some enhanced security, but they never felt restricted,” Danza said.

The dismissal comes on the heels of Lenox Hill’s denial that Hov and Bey paid $ 1.3 million for their custom-built suite. However, the hospital still has a potential lawsuit brewing against them. Mothers in a breastfeeding class threatened to sue Lenox Hill, claiming that Blue Ivy’s security team was rude and that hospital staff neglected them during the frenzy surrounding the famous babe’s birth.

On the bright side, at least baby Blue is away from the drama. Beyonce and Jay took their hip-hop princess home on Tuesday (Jan. 10), where she’s likely dreaming of anything but cameras.

The Dream REVEALS He Made $15 Million Off “Umbrella” And Why He Gave Ex-Wife Christina Milian A Percentage Of Justin Bieber’s “Baby”

The Dream, aka Terius Nash, recently did an interview in London where he revealed he made $ 15 million off writing Rihanna’s "Umbrella" hit. Also, he discussed the story behind Justin Bieber’s "Baby" hit and why he gave ex-wife Christina Milian a percentage of the writing credits. Deets inside….

Earlier, we told you that Christina Milian had opened up about her divorce from Terius Nash aka The Dream, and now Terius is also speaking out about their former marriage. 

During a recent interview with the Westwood 1Xtra show in London, Terius revealed that he gave Christina a percentage of his writing credits (during the divorce settlement) for Justin Bieber’s "Baby" because she helped him find the melody for the track.

Watch the interview here:




"Love & Hip Hop" star Kimbella is speaking out against the hair-pulling chick Erica Mena.  She made shocking allegations that Erica is just a fame-hungry former stripper from the Valley. In fact, Kimbella claims Erica was stripping and sexing folks for money before she landed on VH1! And she says Erica INDEED called the cops. 


Our exclusive interview inside……

Kimbella Vanderhee, the controversial chick at the center of ALL the drama on "Love & Hip Hop" is telling her side of the story exclusively to TheYBF.com.  During our chat, Kimbella gave her thoughts on her fights with Chrissy and Erica and revealed some shocking details from Erica Mena’s past that I’m sure she doesn’t want you to know about–alleged stripping and sexing for money, doing "Love & Hip Hop" for free, and more.  Here’s our chat….

Did you know Erica before this?

No! What’s wrong with these women? What did I do to Chrissy or Erica for them to do this to me?
I don’t know her….and I haven’t heard anything great about her. The one thing I can tell you is that folks in the industry are saying before “Love & Hip Hop,” she was found stripping in the Valley and giving blow jobs for $ 200. So that is the career that me and VH1 are ruining?


YBF: Erica Mena has been popping off about your big fight this week. She seemed to start going in on you as soon as you opened you mouth and it was your first REAL time meeting?! She says a lot ended up on the cutting floor and the show was shaped to make her look like the bad guy. Do you agree? What’s your side of the story?

Kimbella: I don’t agree. She is bi-polar. In fact, she is a crack whore and you will get to see it in the rest of the episodes brought to you by VH1! She is obviously embarrassed by her actions because she really got to see who “she” really is. She doesn’t know how to conduct herself as a lady and it showed. I basically I was attacked. I tried to stay classy but she tried my patience and crossed the line. It’s crazy to hear her blaming VH1 and not herself.Even the producers were dumbfounded when all this happened.


So for the record–WHO WON THE FIGHT?

I’m not about that. We shouldn’t be fighting because we are both grown women. I’m not going to condone fighting.

Erica said she didn’t call the cops. is this true? Were any police reports filed?

There is a police report filed. She did call the cops…and she was going to press charges (she didn’t). She called the cops because her face was cut. But wait, isn’t she from the Bronx but she’s calling the po po!


Some people think she’s just purposely causing drama to get a permanent slot on the show and make a name for herself. Do you agree?

Yes. And she wants to talk about me doing stuff for free? She’s not a cast member so she’s not even getting paid to be on the shows!

Obviously you’re having a rough time getting along with the girls–you had a fight on your very first episode of this season with Chrissy. Why is that? Do you plan to continue with another season with these ladies?

I don’t know how to answer that. We had a lot of positive things go on but the producers chose to focus on the drama. I wish they would make it more even…a little bit of positive and a little drama. Why do they focus on the negativity?
They show one aspect of my life, which is the drama I go through with females that I don’t know. It’s always a problem!

You tweeted about pitching a LAHH spinoff to creator Mona Scott Young. What would the spinoff entail?

I can’t comment about that, but I’m always trying to venture out and do bigger things.


Watch "Love & Hip Hop" Mondays at 8pm on VH1.
