A Collin County judge has ruled Deion Sanders will have to pay his estranged wife roughly $14,000 in child support and mortgage payments each month. Pilar Sanders had presented an even larger child support request to the NFL Hall of Famer Tuesday in court.

The Former Dallas Cowboy openly laughed in the courtroom when Pilar Sanders estimated his net worth at $250,000,000, and asked the court for $24,000 a month in payments. Deion Sanders chuckled out loud in obvious disagreement that its that high. READ MORE

Tyler Perry Studios went down in flames last night after Atlanta Fire Rescue was dispatched to the studios near Greenbriar Parkway.


“The fire’s out, but the cause remains under investigation,” Capt. Jolyon Bundrige with the Atlanta Fire Department told the AJC just before 11 p.m.
Last night the AJC reports, “that several fire units were still on the scene, “conducting a damage assessment, including salvage and overhaul.”

Firefighters were able to contain the blaze to one building in the center of the 30-acre complex owned by Atlanta filmmaker Perry, Bundrige said. The first report of a fire came in at 8:41 p.m., and before it was over, more than 100 firefighters had responded to a blaze that quickly escalated to four alarms.


Nicki Minaj 29 made major headlines over the weekend in Twittersphere and on the net after her father spoke out about false accusation over “Nightline” Interview. The Jasmine Brand The hip-hop diva deleted her Twitter account over the weekend. Nicki didn’t give a reason as to why she’s no longer a part of the social networking site. Rap-Up, however, points out that there had been a large amount of negativity on her timeline recently. Nicki was also unhappy about a fansite recently posting portions of her latest album “Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded.” Before deleting her Twitter page, Nicki sent out a tweet on Sunday saying that there is only “so much a person can take.”

Shortly after her account was gone, the topic #NickiComeBack began trending. READ MORE

Mannnn! How in the heezy can anyone fix their mouths to say “All I got is 6.45 Million dollars to my name? And then file for Bankruptcy! If he is dead broke then I am cremated dead broker! According to our good friends at TMZ Future NFL Hall-of-Famer Warren Sapp has filed for bankruptcy … claiming he’s racked up millions of dollars in debts … but worst of all, dude claims he LOST his 2002 Super Bowl ring.

Sapp — who played in the NFL for 12 years — just filed for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy in Florida … and in the papers he gives a full rundown of his dire financial situation.

According to the docs, Sapp owes more than $6.7 million to various creditors … including hundreds of thousands of dollars in child support payments and alimony to at least 4 different baby mamas.

Among the debts, Sapp says he owes $853k to the IRS for 2006 and another $89k for 2010. Sapp says he also owes $2,858 in medical bills for “Corrective Speech and Language Therapy.”

Sapp says he only has $6.45 million to his name … and lists all of his assets in the documents … which include:

— 240 pairs of Jordan sneakers and sandals
— Large Nude women painting
— Lion skin rug (female – lioness)
— Nike golf clubs
— De Grisogono watch (scratch on crystal, nicks and scratches on band)
— A boxing glove signed by Muhammad Ali

But most interestingly, Sapp notes he has LOST two of his most treasured and valuable possessions — the 2002 Super Bowl ring he won with the Tampa Bay Bucs (example below) and the National Championship ring he won with the Miami Hurricanes.
In the docs, Sapp also lists his current salary as an analyst for the NFL Network as $45k per month … $540k per year. Sapp says his deal with the NFL Network expires in August and he’s not sure if the network will extend his deal.

Apparently the Singers and Rappers have all gotten together & formed an alliance that after they make it big they will all say to heck with property taxes! Added to the Lil Bow Wow, Wesley Snipes, etc etc list of not paying taxes is South Central LA’s own Montell Jordan according to our friends at TMZ. All the gang bangers forgetting about the drive-by isn’t nearly as bad as Montell Jordan forgetting to pay his taxes … to the tune of $627,987.06, this according to docs obtained by TMZ.

The “This Is How We Do It” star owes Uncle Sam back taxes for the years 1999-2001. According to the Federal Tax Lien filed against Jordan, the government first filed a lien against him in 2004 — but since he still hasn’t paid up, they refiled it last month. Can you say? What happened to the accountant?

The IRS is looking for their money ASAP and if they don’t get it, they can go after his property in court.

A rep for the singer tells TMZ the government has to get their groove on before they can get paid. Just kidding! That was some more TMZ humorsarcasmn.

Another one bites the dust! NBA millions once again goes down the drain as another NBA player preys victim to foreclosure. I didn’t even know Stephon was no longer in the league. According to TMZ it’s a good thing Stephon Marbury‘s making bank playing ball in China — because his L.A. mansion was just sold at a foreclosure auction.

According to new court docs, obtained by TMZ, Stephon owed $3.1 million on the 7-bdrm 8-bath 8,000 sq. ft. L.A. property — and the house was just sold to a lucky buyer for $2.275 million.

The docs don’t say whether the bank plans to go after Marbury for the balance — or if this settles his debt.

Stephon just won a championship playing basketball for the Beijing Ducks in the Chinese Basketball Association — so it’s unclear if dude’s even aware this happened. If not, consider this a memo.

Remember when Stephon ate that Vaseline? Talking about his friend’s grandmother said if you have a sore throat to eat vaseline? Yick!

Black people! Why must we continuously take 3 steps forward and then 10 steps back. Ceelo is my homie but you know I guess this was a case of “Keeping it Real Going Wrong”. You know how when you were little and your parents had company & you had to put on your good clothes and be on your best behavior or you knew you was gonna get that whippen? Well, I think Ceelo forgot the Press was gonna give him that Whippen for using bad language when Tyler Perry had company, Good Company “President Barack Obama”. I guess Ceelo Green was having a Bobby Brown Moment. Check out the clip below. Notice mid-way during the song Ceelo felt a certain kinda way and switched to the Pg-version and then switched back.
