DMX’s wife thinks his recent arrest was a set up. She stated:
“He only had three weeks left [of probation], and they set him up. Because he was in a rehab that they put him in because he was driving dirty, and they gave him permission to go do a show. How do you give someone thatâ€™s supposed to be in a rehab permission to do a show? It was a set up, and then X, I canâ€™t even believe that he even took a drink knowing the situation.”
Maybe she is the one that should be rehab. He admitted to it being his fault. Watch the video and look at the pics to see how crazy she sounds. Read More »

I was so happy to here that the Queen of Soul is happy to be home. Aretha Franklin, who underwent “highly successful” surgery for an undisclosed ailment on Dec. 2 â€“ and is reported to have pancreatic cancer â€“ was discharged from a Detroit hospital earlier this week, according to a statement released Wednesday.
“I’ve been at home for almost three days now,” says Franklin, 68, in the statement. “My family and friends who brought me home are taking great care of me. I also have a private nurse who visits on a daily basis.”
The singer is also optimistic about being out and about soon.
“I’m hoping to be strong enough to go out and see the upcoming Sam Cooke play at the Music Hall in downtown Detroit before Jan. 2, as well as a performance of Dreamgirls at the FOX before it closes,” she says.
“The Queen of Soul is in great spirits and very happy to be home where she will be resting in anticipation of spending the upcoming holiday season with her family,” her rep adds in the statement.
Despite the crazy prognosis of pancreatic cancer, Franklin’s supporters remain optimistic.
The singer “has a long life in front of her and will be back in concert, on stage, late spring or early summer,” her cousin Brenda Corbett told the Detroit Free Press.

He adds, quote, “Why people keep saying I got jungle fever. I ain’t never even kissed a white women. Lol.” Dating rumors about Handler and the rapper began earlier this year when the two were spotted together at a New Orleans bar. Handler eventually denied any romantic involvement by tweeting that they were just meeting about a potential project.
