Keke Explains How to Prove You’re Grown in Hollywood.. But with Class!

Keke Palmer can school adults on a few things and she’s not even old enough to drink yet. The Crazy.Sexy.Cool actress, who stars as Chilli in the new TLC biopic set to premiere on VH1 this Monday, has had an almost smooth transition in her acting career as a child star turned adult actress. Although she admits that people still view her as her adolescent character “Akeelah” from “Akeelah and the Bee,” she admits that’s not such a bad thing and that she understands the time it will take for people to shed their youthful perception of her.

When people think of me initially, they remember me as ‘Akeelah’… Sometimes it can be frustrating to be remembered at an age that you’ve outgrown. But at the same time, it’s never frustrated me to the point where I wanted to lash out. I just take it one step at a time. I’ve been patient in letting other people adapt to me and my growth.”

The actress, who is also transitioning into becoming a triple threat (adding singing and dancing to her resume), also goes on to say that she feels less is more when proving one’s adulthood. For example, Palmer has had a live-in boyfriend for the past two years, yet refuses to go around reminding fans that because of this, she is “grown.” Instead, she feels one’s maturity speaks for itself. Unlike Miley Cyrus’ very public x-rated proclamations to prove she’s an adult, Keke steers clear of such transitional cliches and would rather just let people get “it” through her everyday actions.

If anything, [doing the most] makes you look even more like a kid… As an adult, you don’t have to go around saying ‘Hey, I’m an adult!’ That would be like me saying ‘Guess what — I’m black!’ You know it already.”

We couldn’t agree more. Be sure to catch her on VH1 for the Monday Premiere of Crazy.Sexy.Cool!

BEAT IT: Michael Jordan Moves To DISMISS Paternity Suit, Says Legal Docs Prove THE KID Is NOT His Son

Michael Jordan has released a statement claiming legal documents prove he didn’t father the teenager who’s claiming to be his son. Find out what he said inside….

Basketball legend Michael Jordan has been splashed across gossip pages in the past week after the 16-year-old son of Pamela Y. Smith (shown above) posted a YouTube video claiming to be his son and then she filed legal paperwork demanding Michael to claim paternity.

Back in February, Pamela Y. Smith, 48, filed suit in Fulton County Superior Court requesting that MJ take a paternity test, pay child support and share medical, dental and hospital costs that are not covered by insurance.

So why did Pam do this now? Apparently, Pamela’s son wants to forge a relatiosnip with his father and for now…they think the legal system is the best route. In a statement released earlier, Pamela’s publicist said, "Pamela had no choice but to support her son and his desire to forge a relationship with his father. That’s why she is now speaking out and prompting Michael to do the right thing."

Not so fast…..said MJ’s lawyers today. Michael and his legal team recently filed documents seeking to dismiss Pamela’s case, claming paternity of her son has already been established.  And MJ is NOT the father.  His legal team told the Associated Press,

"Public records show that the paternity of the child was established in a prior case in this same court many years ago and that Michael Jordan is not the father. He also filed a counterclaim seeking sanctions for the false claims made against him. It is unfortunate that well-known figures are the target of these kind of claims. Michael Jordan will vigorously defend himself and his reputation."

And Michael’s team says Pamela’s suit is a "shameless, bad faith attempt to abuse the legal system."  For now, we guess a judge will decide as MJ and Pamela are set to meet in court for Tuesday, March 12.

We reached out the Pamela’s publicist for a comment….and we’re still waiting.

Womp.

SEE SOMETHING SAY SOMETHING: Photos Prove FEDS Knew T.I. Was Taking a Tour Bus To Halfway House

Do the feds just have it out for T.I.?  Newly released photos show that not only did prison officials know T.I. was boarding a tour bus on the way to his halfway house, it appears that he received help!

So now the feds are backtracking and saying T.I. was also brought back into custody because he may have been discussing "business" on the tour bus with its occupants.  Get the deets inside….

As shown in the photo above, it confirms what T.I.’s wife, Tiny, said last week, that prison officials knew that T.I. was taking a tour bus to his halfway house.

But now prison officials are backing off of the whole "tour bus" thing and saying the OTHER reason T.I. was brought back into custody was because prison officials believe he was conducting business while on the bus.  How so?  Shortly after T.I. left prison, it was revealed that he was shooting a reality show about his release for VH1.  And guess who just happened to be on that waiting tour bus……T.I.’s manager and two VH1 producers.  Hmmmmmm.

In an incident report file by the feds, they said T.I. was ONLY supposed to travel with his wife Tiny to the halfway house.  And although T.I.’s camp says no "business" was discussed, prison officials don’t see it that way.  So T.I. went back to the Big House.

SIDEBAR:  So who did they think was driving that big ass bus then?  Did the Feds assume it was Tiny?  Pure foolery.
