Toya Wright, Brother's Death

Image
TMZ reports that Antonia "Toya Wright" Johnson has suffered a devastating loss.  Her brothers, Rudy and Josh, were murdered in New Orleans, Louisiana.  We're sorry to report that they were both shot to death.  Police officers found them in a car early Sunday morning.  The incident took place in the 7th Ward where former Cash Money Records producer, Mannie Fresh was born and raised.


According to Ask Kissy, Antonia was at a club appearance when she received the horrible news.  Rudy had a daughter and another baby on the way.  Although Antonia and Rudy had their differences they loved each other dearly.  

Antonia can't seem to catch a break.  She has a daughter, Reginae Carter, whose father is Lil' Wayne.  While we celebrate what he has accomplished as a rapper, he never made Antonia the wife she should have been.  It's hard to believe that Reginae is already 17-years-old and we're so sorry that her uncles are gone.

Melissa McCarthy's Death

Image
Hello Giggles reports that Melissa Ann McCarthy's clothing line has been doing very well.  Last year, the talented actress teamed up with Seven7 to create a plus size clothing collection.  She launched the line because the fashion industry wasn't offering women in her size pieces she was looking for.


According to Yahoo many brands end their sizes at a 12.  This forces women to have to shop at stores that offer larger sizes.  The 45-year-old is completely changing the women's fashion industry and we love her for doing so.  Plus size women can now shop at the same stores as "normal" women.  If you've been paying attention to recent rumors you're probably wondering how this is possible if Melissa McCarthy's dead.

Similar to the stars of Empire the actress has been the topic of a false rumor.  An article that went viral on Facebook explains that she passed away on Friday, July 29, 2016.  Another day, another death hoax.  The sad part is that these myths a…

Draymond Green Snapchat Name

Scroll to the Snapcode for Draymond Green's Snapchat name!

For The Win reports that NBA superstar Draymond Jamal Green has been using Snapchat to clown all of his USA teammates.  No one is safe.  The Golden State Warriors' power forward caught his new teammate, Kevin Durant sleeping on the team plane.  While a majority of players would respect their teammates privacy, "DrayMagic" is unlike any other player in the league.


According to The Big Lead the Michigan native knows exactly what he's doing.  NBA players have been ridiculed for the way they pass their time on flights.  No need for any additional speculation.  Mr. Green has provided you a front row seat.  Follow him on Snapchat: Draymond Green's Snapchat name is Money23Green:

Who Is Cliff Dixon?

Image
Bossip explains that Rihanna's ex-boyfriend, Cliff Dixon, has been accused of refusing to pay a hotel bill.  A woman claims that she did him an expensive favor and he owes her $3000.  The woman explains that he asked her to book him a hotel in Washington, D.C.  He told the woman that he would have her credit card removed from the reservation once he arrived at the hotel.


He never had her card removed.  The hotel bill was $3000.  According to Nice Kicks the former basketball player has been focused on fashion lately.  Too bad he hasn't found time to focus on paying back his friends.  By the way: Who is Cliff Dixon?

He's a member of Kevin Durant's entourage.  The NBA basketball player often refers to him as his brother.  Durant's mother, Wanda Pratt, took Dixon in when he was 16-years-old.  Similar to Durant, he's from Suitland, Maryland and attended Suitland High School.  
After high school he attended Hutchinson Community College and then he transferred to West…

Will Smith's Son, Death Hoax

Image
Breitbart explains that actor, Willard Carroll "Will" Smith, Jr. recently appeared on The Tonight Show to promote his new movie, Suicide Squad.  During the interview he explained that racism isn't getting worse instead it's getting filmed.  According to TMZ the actor has been visiting LAPD stations to prepare for his upcoming movie "Bright."



Law enforcement sources state that his visits were great for morale considering the recent tensions.  The Philadelphia native has been keeping himself busy but according to a recent rumor, the 47-year-old's son, Jaden Smith, died.  Anyone who uses the internet understands that it's full of myths, lies and misinformation.  So did Will Smith's son pass away or is this another urban legend?

There's no way that his father would be able to keep himself so busy if his son recently passed away.  The actor and producer's son is alive.  He just celebrated his 18th birthday. Will Smith Jimmy Fallon As mentione…

Is Tim Kaine Gay?

Image
Salon reports that Hillary Clinton's running mate, Timothy Michael "Tim" Kaine has described himself as a conservative in the past.  Conservatism is any political philosophy that promotes tradition.  As a former conservative, I was surprised to hear rumors involving the 58-year-old being gay.



After some research I found out that the rumors weren't true.  He married Anne Holton, in 1984, and they have three children: Nat, Woody and Annella.  Holton was a student at Harvard's Law School when they met.  They both earned law degrees from Harvard in 1983.  The rumor reminds us that the internet is full of urban legends, misinformation and myths.  If the words don't add up, it's usually because the truth wasn't a part of the equation.

He sparked a bit of confusion on Friday after his remarks about abortion.  The Minnesota native stated that he supports the Hyde Amendment which bans Medicaid coverage of abortion.  There's only one problem: Hillary Clinto…

Is Lil Wayne Dead?

Image
XXL reports that rapper Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr. aka Lil Wayne is still in a feud with Bryan "Birdman" Williams aka Baby.  Carter is the founder of Young Money Entertainment, an imprint of Cash Money Records.  Despite their affiliation, Dwayne was recently seen sporting a hat with "F*** Cash Money" on it.


According to BET Weezy's $51 million lawsuit against the record label remains outstanding.  The situation is similar to Jay-Z and Damon Dash's beef a decade ago.  On one hand, Shawn and Dwayne Carter would still be Shawn and Dwayne, on the block, if it wasn't for Dame and Baby.  On the other hand, artists eventually outgrow their past and must evolve.  The debate doesn't matter if the New Orleans native isn't alive: Is Lil Wayne dead?

A false rumor holding that the rapper passed away after suffering his eight seizure circulated in July 2016.  The report explains that Weezy's maid found him in his shower.  According to the story, the maid …

Faze Adapt's Sister Milan

Image
FaZe Adapt's sister, FaZe Milan was the topic of the YouTuber's most recent video.  Alex was back in Arizona so he decided to team up with a family member.  In the video they Google Milan's name.  He decided to have a Google Yourself episode after he reached out to his Snapchat followers for video ideas.

If you haven't heard of the FaZe Clan you're not a gamer.  The team was founded in 2010 and are located in Plainview, New York.  They compete in Call of Duty and continue to dominate.  According to ESL, the team recently joined the European Division of the Pro League.

Alex and Milan find the first video they ever made together as they explore the search results.  The talented gamer is then distracted by an image of a female that shouldn't have been included in the search results.  Similar to Empire, the video shows us the importance of quality family time.

Milan then reveals that she wants to send RiceGum a message.  Alex gives her a hard time but eventually al…

Is John Cena Dead?

Image
Bleacher Report explains that wrestler, John Felix Anthony Cena Jr. is slowly but surely morphing into a special attraction rather than the wrestling workhorse that he has been for the past ten years.  Similar to Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, outside ventures have continued to pull him away from the ring.


According to Entertainment Weekly, the West Newbury, Massachusetts native's show, American Grit, has been renewed by Fox for a second season.  The wrestler helps people discover their inner strength and transform their lives on the competition series.  That's great but it's his life that we're worried about: Is John Cena dead?

A recent article explained that the actor passed away in a car crash on Route 80.  According to the story, the 39-year-old died at the scene.  Paramedics identified him by a photo ID found on his body.  He was located between Morristown and Roswell in a friend's car.


There's only one problem with the rumor: It is completely false.…

Did Bill Clinton Have A Stroke?

Image
In a recent article, Life News argues that the Clinton marriage is not one to look up to.  The piece was written in response to a Cosmopolitan article that praised Bill and Hillary Clinton for outlasting the first two Trump marriages along with two Gingrich marriages and the Gore marriage.  Life News disagrees, arguing that he's a serial adulterer who shouldn't be awarded for his mistakes.


According to Daily Caller, the 69-year-old apparently fell asleep during his wife's speech at the Democratic National Convention.  Teflon Bill has nine lives and we'll continue to forgive him for his mistakes.  He's getting older and according to rumors, he recently had a stroke.


The rumors started back in March after he made a television appearance with Gabby Gifford and Mark Kelly.  The video below shows the incident which took place in Arizona.  One sign of a stroke is an individual becoming noticeably lethargic.  In the video below the Arkansas native looks fine at first but …

Deadline reports that a federal judge has thrown out a lawsuit claiming that Lee Daniels, Terrence Howard and 20th Century Fox stole Ron Newt's story after he shared with with Howard.  District Judge Consuelo Marshall explained that Empire and Newt's screenplay are both about an African American drug dealer who has sons in the music industry but the works are not substantially similar.


According to TV Week, Newt claimed he gave Howard a copy of his DVD, "Bigger Than Big" along with a registered screenplay.  Similar to Lucious Lyon, the character Howard plays on the show, not even the legal system can stop him.

Is Nicolas Cage Dead?

BuzzFeed recently published an article that shows images of Nicolas Kim Coppola aka Nicolas Cage as a Pokemon because we all deserve it! The Las Vegas, Nevada native is one of the most amazing figures in Hollywood.  Over the years, we've fallen in love with his unique personality on and off the screen.


According to iHeart the 52-year-old was recently seen scuffling with Motley Crue singer Vince Neil.  The incident took place outside of a hotel in Las Vegas back in April of this year.  The two entertainers started fighting after Neil pulled a woman to the ground by her hair.  Neil could face six months in jail if he's convicted.  Cage wasn't having it and that's why we adore him.  So what's the deal with rumors of the actor dying in a motorcycle accident?

The rumors are false.  He's alive and well.  This isn't the first time he's been the subject of a death hoax.  The most recent report claimed that he passed away after a horrible motorcycle accident.  M…
