Meghan Markle’s Dad Faking His Way to the Wedding

Meghan Markle’s dad was just caught in a big scandal. He’s been allegedly faking photos for the paparazzi of him prepping for the wedding. Photos include reading a book on Britain, reading an article about Harry and Meghan, and even getting measured for a suit. The photos have reportedly been sold for around $140,000, but we don’t know if he received any money. Meghan’s half sister Samantha is taking the blame. She tweeted Kensington Palace saying the media was unfairly making her father look bad so she suggested he do positive photos.

Cardi B Deletes Instagram

Azealia Banks and Cardi B had a huge fight over the weekend. On Friday, Azealia slammed Cardi in an interview, calling her an “illiterate rat” and a “caricature of a black woman.” Cardi shot back on Instagram saying, “This is coming from a woman that bleached her skin… I’m not apologizing or killing myself because of who I am.” Cardi then posted a longer post saying that she isn’t illiterate since she speaks two languages fluently, just because she talks louder doesn’t make her a caricature, and Azealia finds joy in belittling black women. Azealia posted a pic of Cardi with no makeup, saying Cardi looks like a big toe, and that someone must’ve written Cardi’s post for her because she doesn’t have the intelligence, and Cardi needs to use her black womanhood responsibly. Cardi then deleted her Instagram and her Twitter.

Over the weekend, Cardi also got into altercation at the Louis Vuitton store at the mall, but the details are sketchy.

Tina Knowles on Daughters’ Fame

Beyoncé’s mom is speaking out about her daughters’ fame. Tina Knowles spoke to Maria Shriver about sending her daughters to counseling at a young age and making sure Solange didn’t get lost in Beyoncé’s shadow. “I had days that I devoted to [Beyoncé and Solange]. On Wednesdays I took off of work and that was Solange’s day. She was a lot younger than Beyoncé, and it was tough because Beyoncé was this little superstar in our city, and so I took them to counseling very early so that the counselor could help Beyoncé be more sensitive to Solange… I wanted Beyoncé to be sensitive to the fact that Solange had to deal with being a little in her shadow.”

#MuteRKelly Campaign Proves to Be Successful

The campaign to “Mute R. Kelly” is working. Spotify, Pandora, and Apple Music have decided to “bury” R. Kelly’s music on their sites. This basically means that only people who actively search for “R. Kelly” will be able to listen to his music. This is a big deal because Spotify is the biggest music service today with nearly 170 million monthly listeners. This can substantially affect the money he makes from streaming. Over the weekend, R. Kelly performed in North Carolina while people protested outside. This didn’t make R. Kelly tone down his show. He rubbed a fans phone between his legs, and had a woman wipe his crotch with a towel.
