For Terrence Howard the second time—in this case, his second former marriage—isn’t the charm. According to him, it’s leaving him with very little money… and he wants justice.

TMZ reports that the actor recently filed court papers requesting that the divorce settlement he made with his ex-wife, Michelle Howard. Terrence claims that, to obtain their agreement, his ex threatened him with blackmail if he didn’t sign on to the amount—about $325,000—she wanted. But Michelle is standing her grounding, demanding that he pay her what she’s owed.

In response, the Best Man Holiday star says he couldn’t pay that because he only makes $5,878 a month. The reason being that most of his earnings are earmarked for another ex-wife, Lori McMasters, to pay spousal and child support. According to Terrence, he is simply an employee on Lori’s payroll because his acting money goes straight to her. And she, in turn, cuts him his monthly check.

Kim K. Bars Family from Uttering Reggie Bush’s Name http://blogs.bet.com/celebrities/entertainment-spotlight/2014/07/24/kim-k-bars-family-from-uttering-reggie-bush%e2%80%99s-name/ http://blogs.bet.com/celebrities/entertainment-spotlight/2014/07/24/kim-k-bars-family-from-uttering-reggie-bush%e2%80%99s-name/#comments Thu, 24 Jul 2014 14:00:08 +0000 mreeves http://blogs.bet.com/celebrities/entertainment-spotlight/?p=18302

Kim Kardashian is Mrs. Kanye West, but her ex-beau Reggie Bush apparently looms, um, large over the marriage…. So much so that Kim K has banned her family from mentioning the NFL player in front of her hubby.

The problems arose last weekend when Reggie got married to his girlfriend Lilit Avagyan, and Kim made sure to stay away from all readings that referenced the ceremony. “She doesn’t like to discuss Reggie,” explained an inside source, “not even with her sisters. And Kim did remind her family to not mention Reggie’s name in front of Kanye, because he is very jealous of him.”

Yeezy’s green-eyed monster is for good reason, given that, according to the source, when Kim was dating Reggie she “Absolutely lit up” when her former beau was in the room.

While Kanye has reportedly quizzed wifey about her old love, he’s supposedly gone so far as to ask her how the running back was in the sack and who did she think was better: he or Mr. Bush? So to quiet all the turmoil, Kim has nixed the fam from even uttering RBs name. Good call, Kim. Good call—allegedly!

Sherri Shepherd Faces Lawsuit Over Motherhood http://blogs.bet.com/celebrities/entertainment-spotlight/2014/07/21/sherri-shepherd-faces-lawsuit-over-motherhood/ http://blogs.bet.com/celebrities/entertainment-spotlight/2014/07/21/sherri-shepherd-faces-lawsuit-over-motherhood/#comments Mon, 21 Jul 2014 17:00:35 +0000 mreeves http://blogs.bet.com/celebrities/entertainment-spotlight/?p=18294

The Sherri Shepherd surrogate custody battle and divorce proceedings have officially entered the down and dirty phase. Shepherd soon-to-be-ex Lamar Sally is threatening to sue the soon-to-be former View co-host if she doesn’t claim the child they are having via surrogate this month.

Sally is not letting the blistering and sobering fact that Shepherd’s eggs were not used in the surrogacy process. He is now reportedly  quickly assembling legal documents to stop the comedian from bailing on their surrogate contract signed when they were a happy couple.

Shepherd claims Lamar tricked her into signing the agreement. She claims he knew she wanted a divorce but Lamar wanted the easy access to her cash to the child support payments. So The View host wants the contract voided on grounds of fraud, which relinquishes all of her parental obligations.

In addition to reneging on her responsibilities, Lamar claims Shepherd is hypocrite as well, espousing Christian values, but abandoning an innocent, unborn child.

Is anyone out there truly buying this man’s point of view, other than golddiggers of the world?

Apollo Nida Wants to Bail on Marriage to Phaedra Parks http://blogs.bet.com/celebrities/entertainment-spotlight/2014/07/18/apollo-nida-wants-to-bail-on-marriage-to-phaedra-parks/ http://blogs.bet.com/celebrities/entertainment-spotlight/2014/07/18/apollo-nida-wants-to-bail-on-marriage-to-phaedra-parks/#comments Fri, 18 Jul 2014 16:30:46 +0000 mreeves http://blogs.bet.com/celebrities/entertainment-spotlight/?p=18279

It seems Phaedra Parks forgot the part of her marriage vows where you stand by your man in good times and bad, and now her estranged and troubled husband Apollo Nida is calling her on it.

Nida, who got eight years for check fraud and money laundering and must pay 2 million dollars to make things right, believes his marriage to Parks is over. “I doubt it [that my relationship with Phaedra will make it through this.]” Nida told Atlanta’s B-100. “My wife didn’t even f******* show up for my sentencing. I’m still salty about that.”

The normally macho Nida admitted his wrongdoing during the chat and also displayed his sensitive side when explaining how the ordeal has affected him. “It’s been hell on wheels. I’ve asked God to forgive me,” Nida continued. “It doesn’t make you any less of a man to cry and shed tears. I’ve shed tears. But I’ve forgiven myself and I’ve had to move on.”

His biggest regret, however, is how his legal drama and frayed marital state will affect his son. “I love my kids I feel most sad and disappointed that I let my little man down,” Nida finishes.  “I’m still human at the end of the day and I’m remorseful.”

Aww, now doesn’t that make you feel sorry for poor ole Apollo?

Adrienne Bailon ‘Excited’ About Removing Rob Kardashian Tattoo http://blogs.bet.com/celebrities/entertainment-spotlight/2014/07/17/adrienne-bailon-excited-about-removing-rob-kardashian-tattoo/ http://blogs.bet.com/celebrities/entertainment-spotlight/2014/07/17/adrienne-bailon-excited-about-removing-rob-kardashian-tattoo/#comments Thu, 17 Jul 2014 16:53:22 +0000 mreeves http://blogs.bet.com/celebrities/entertainment-spotlight/?p=18270

Sometimes love is not forever and if Adrienne Bailon has her way, she’s hopeful her embarrassing butt tattoo won’t be either. The Real star has tried three times to remove her backside ink featuring ex-boyfriend Rob Kardashian’s name. This time around, she’s hoping a new tattoo removal laser technology called the PicoSure Laser, will erase the scribbles from her bottom for good.

“I have not been in a relationship with Rob for six years, and I’ve been with my current boyfriend, [Roc Nation’s Lenny S.] for five years. I think it’s time to remove it,” Bailon told Us Weekly about the tattoo. “I think it’s always been time, but there wasn’t a procedure that I was sure would not only remove it properly but also not leave me with a worse situation I started with.”

Here’s backstory on the ex-couple. Bailon and Kardashian were hooked up from 2007 to 2009. To celebrate the union, the pair got his and her tattoos. Kardashian opted to show devotion by etching Adrienne on his rib cage and Bailon by branding Rob’s name on her bottom. But today, she’s looking to put the past behind (pun intended) her and her new fashion choices will be the perks.

“I’m so excited, you don’t understand,” Bailon said about her pending ink removal. “The other day I ran across some pictures of myself in a bathing suit that had Brazilian high-cut bottoms, pre-Rob Tattoo, and I couldn’t wait to wear those again because they looked so cute.”

So kids, the moral of this story is never put the name of your puppy love on your backside. It will always come back to bite you in the butt.

Kim Kardashian Ex Dentist Wants To Make Money Off Her Teeth http://blogs.bet.com/celebrities/entertainment-spotlight/2014/07/09/kim-kardashian-ex-dentist-wants-to-make-money-off-her-teeth/ http://blogs.bet.com/celebrities/entertainment-spotlight/2014/07/09/kim-kardashian-ex-dentist-wants-to-make-money-off-her-teeth/#comments Wed, 09 Jul 2014 16:00:04 +0000 mreeves http://blogs.bet.com/celebrities/entertainment-spotlight/?p=18262

There is one dentist in town who’s hoping Kim Kardashian’s riches have a trickle down theory. This doc is hoping one of her biggest fans, or foes, buys a judgment he got against the reality star.

Here’s how it all went down… back in 2001, Kim went to Dr. Craig Gordon to get her silver fillings switched to the more attractive and expensive porcelain ones. A 2002 lawsuit shows that Kim skipped out on the bill and because she was a no-show in court he got a default judgment for $1,605.73.

Now Gordon is trying to sell his judgment to the highest bidder, and with the interest that has accumulated the total tab is now $3,486.85. But the now the good doc is trying to sell it for $13,000 because he believes it has “collectible value”

This should be considered a judgment with lots of bite!

OJ Simpson Loses Home to Foreclosure http://blogs.bet.com/celebrities/entertainment-spotlight/2014/07/03/oj-simpson-loses-home-to-foreclosure/ http://blogs.bet.com/celebrities/entertainment-spotlight/2014/07/03/oj-simpson-loses-home-to-foreclosure/#comments Thu, 03 Jul 2014 16:00:27 +0000 mreeves http://blogs.bet.com/celebrities/entertainment-spotlight/?p=18258

Just a month past the 20th anniversary of the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman, the life and times of O.J. Simpson continues to get worse. The jailed Hall of Famer, who currently resides at Nevada’s Lovelock Correctional Center just, lost his South Florida home, again,  to foreclosure.

The 4-bedroom Miami house hit the auction block in 2013 when it was reported that the Juice owed more than $790,000 in principal and unpaid property. It looked like the residence could have had a new lease on life when a prospective buyer, named Global Rental E&P stepped forward to take possession of the home on May 14. But when the buyer reneged on a $655,000 payment, the home returned to auction.

Simpson, who’s currently in prison stemming from 2008 conviction for robbery and kidnapping charges, is set for release from jail sometime after 2015. Maybe at that time, the Juice will be able to become roommates with one of his adult kids.

The Kardashians Looking to get Rob in Drug Rehab http://blogs.bet.com/celebrities/entertainment-spotlight/2014/06/26/the-kardashians-looking-to-get-rob-in-drug-rehab/ http://blogs.bet.com/celebrities/entertainment-spotlight/2014/06/26/the-kardashians-looking-to-get-rob-in-drug-rehab/#comments Thu, 26 Jun 2014 17:00:28 +0000 mreeves http://blogs.bet.com/celebrities/entertainment-spotlight/?p=18252

The Kardashian family is reportedly looking to do an intervention. It’s for brother Rob K., who’s believed to be in the grips of a drug problem.

According to TMZ, sources closed to the family say the Kardashian clan know about Rob’s addiction, which could be seen depicted in pics from a recent party showing him indulging in sizzurp and smoking weed. In fact, Rob is holding a double cup in the shot, one of which has the words “Codeine Boys” on it.

Supposedly, while the Kardashians have been looking into rehab facilities, Rob is resisting such a move. As a result, the fam is hoping that the unflattering pics will help convince him.

God speed, K. Clan. But remember the person has to want help more than the family . Rob may have to help himself.

Has Khloe Kardashian Turned Diva Because of French Montana? http://blogs.bet.com/celebrities/entertainment-spotlight/2014/06/25/has-khloe-kardashian-turned-diva-because-of-french-montana-2/ http://blogs.bet.com/celebrities/entertainment-spotlight/2014/06/25/has-khloe-kardashian-turned-diva-because-of-french-montana-2/#comments Wed, 25 Jun 2014 21:18:29 +0000 mreeves http://blogs.bet.com/celebrities/entertainment-spotlight/?p=18243

It could be a case of association breeds assimilation. Khloe Kardashian has been reportedly showing up tardy for her new reality show, Kourtney and Khloe Take the Hamptons and behaving like diva to all those around her. Sources claim her family is blaming Khloe’s new beau French Montana for the personality change.

“Khloe has been showing up late for call times and has offered no explanation for the delay,” the insider told Radar.com. “The crew has been left in the lurch because they can’t get any work done until Khloe decides to show up.”

Allegedly, Khloe also has been difficult to work with even when she makes it to set. “Khloe has been complaining about being in the Hamptons and doesn’t understand why the locals are so angry about her arrival in town,” the source says. “She is acting like a real diva and says the Hampton should be lucky to have her in town, as it’s a boost to the local economy.”

This sure doesn’t sound like the former Mrs. Lamar Odom; maybe Khloe is just going through a dating gal/divorcée phase.

50 Cent Whips Out 10K On Watch What Happens Live http://blogs.bet.com/celebrities/entertainment-spotlight/2014/06/19/50-cent-whips-out-10k-on-watch-what-happens-live/ http://blogs.bet.com/celebrities/entertainment-spotlight/2014/06/19/50-cent-whips-out-10k-on-watch-what-happens-live/#comments Thu, 19 Jun 2014 16:13:03 +0000 mreeves http://blogs.bet.com/celebrities/entertainment-spotlight/?p=18236

50 Cent proved he was worth thousands more than his money moniker. During a recent appearance on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live, 50 Cent, who was appearing on the show with  Think Like a Man Too’s Jerry Ferrera and actor Adam Huss, whipped $10,000 out of his pocket during the broadcast.

Prior to flashing the cash, 50 Cent claimed he only had a $20 dollar bill in his pocket. Cohen very happy to see the loot started fanning himself with the money in response. During the profanity laced appearance, where 50 Cent shared with the audience that he felt Jay Z was the most hip hop star around and that he has a dog named Oprah [Winfrey] and a cat named Gayle [King] [the G Unit mogul earned a quick rep for being one of the funniest rappers on the talk show circuit.

When Cohen asked if he ever dated Kim Kardashian, 50 Cent replied, “Nah, I just took pictures.” His former love Vivica A. Fox was discussed and the rapper even let Cohen try on his ring. 50 Cent appeared on the unfiltered chatfest to help promote his new Starz series Power, which stars Huss, who appeared on WWHL at the bar.

After getting this type of response, maybe 50 will consider being semi regular guest on the show.
