Meek Mill Apologized To Vanessa Bryant After She Called Him Out For A “Disrespectful” Lyric About Kobe Bryant’s Death
It’s been just over a year since Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna Bryant tragically died in a helicopter crash and his widow, Vanessa Bryant, is already having to deal with lazy rappers dropping his name willy nilly for clout. I’m sorry, for art. According to Yahoo!, recently leaked lyrics from a Meek Mill track titled Don’t Worry (RIP Kobe) prompted Vanessa to lash out on Instagram, calling the song “extremely insensitive and disrespectful.” And if getting caught distressing a widow wasn’t bad enough, Meek also had the misfortune of having Vanessa shade his ass with the line “I am not familiar with any of your music, but I believe you can do better than this.” Too generous Vanessa, too generous by far. But we’ll have to forgive her if she’s unaware of the fact that Meek almost married Nicki Minaj. If he could do better, he would have by now.
It’s nearly the end of 2020, and Google has counted up everything people searched for over the past 12 months, and let everyone know what was being looked up. They released the top search terms across a variety of categories, from news to people to recipes to TV shows. And if Google could come up with a search term to represent it all, it could be: Pandemic Stuff. Because guess what? The search results reflect everything we were doing while we were stuck inside.
When Gayle King interviewed Lisa Leslie about the death of her friend Kobe Bryant, Gayle brought up the rape accusations against him. Some didn’t like that, including Snoop Dogg who went off on Gayle King and also proved he needs to switch weed strains when he called for the freedom of convicted rapist Bill Cosby. Snoop later apologized for going off on Gayle, but that didn’t stop Jada Pinkett Smith from bringing it up on Red Table Talk.
Vanessa Bryant Has Filed A Wrongful Death Lawsuit Against The Helicopter Company That Kobe Bryant Used
A star-studded public memorial service is currently underway at The Staples Center honoring Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna Bryant who, along with seven others, died in a helicopter crash on January 26. At the same time, it was just announced that Kobe’s widow Vanessa Bryant has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the helicopter company, Island Express, claiming they’re responsible for the death of her husband and daughter. According to Complex, the suit also names the pilot, Ara Zobayan, who was also killed. We’ve already heard that fog and severely limited visibility were factors in the crash. It was also previously reported that the helicopter was lacking a terrain avoidance warning system. All of those factors are addressed in the lawsuit.
It looks like Amber Rose’s boyfriend Alexander Edwards is in it for the long haul. Not only did he put a baby in Amber, he’s taken her lead and gotten a forehead tattoo to commemorate the birth of their son, Slash Alexander Edwards. And then A.E. took it even further by adding the birth date of Amber’s other son, Sebastian “Bash” Taylor Thomaz, whose father is Wiz Khalifa. And yes, as any good parent does, Wiz also has Bash’s name tattooed on his forehead. That is the only way to let your child know they are loved. Why do you think the Boomer generation has the reputation of being standoffish with their children. I mean, just look at them. Hardly any of them have face tattoos!
Snoop Dogg has issued an apology to Gayle King on Instagram for calling her a “funky dog-head bitch” (Siba would like A WORD) and possibly threatening her (depending on who you ask) in the wake of CBS airing a clip of the interview Gayle did with Lisa Leslie, a WNBA star and close friend of the recently deceased Kobe Bryant. Snoop’s initial tirade was directed at both Gayle and her BFF Oprah Winfrey (and concluded with the statement “Free Bill Cosby” which was applauded by Bill Cosby himself on Twitter from prison). That caused Oprah to take precious time away from promoting her controversial book club selection to defend Gayle on Today and let us know that Gayle had been receiving death threats over the matter. Happy Black History Month! (yes, it’s still only February)
