Mary J. Blige’s troubled foundation is turning the tables on the bank that’s suing it for allegedly defaulting on a loan. According to TMZ the Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now says TD Bank should have done its homework before granting the foundation a 250-thousand-dollar loan.

 

If it had, it would have known that FFAWN was already in debt and probably should not have been granted the loan to begin with.

The foundation also claims the woman who signed for the loan did not have the authority to do so.

TD Bank claims the organization, founded by Blige and producer Steve Stoute, has only paid back 400-dollars of the 250-thousand-dollar loan it received in June of last year. The group was supposed to pay the money back by last December. READ MORE

Kim Kardashian says the leak of the sex tape co-starring then-boyfriend, singer Ray-J, was not one of her proudest moments in life.
Kardashian says the regrets she felt about the tape are similar to the ones she had when her first marriage to music producer Damon Thomas ended.

 

It was one of the topics Kardashian spoke about in part one of Oprah Winfrey’s two-part interview with the Kardashian family that aired Sunday night on OWN.

 

The reality TV star also denied rumors again that her 72-day marriage to NBA player Kris Humphries was a publicity stunt. The interview ended with a cliffhanger as Oprah asks if rumored boyfriend Kanye West is Kim’s fairytale.

Part Two of the Kardashian interview airs next Sunday on OWN.

Fiancée Says Rodney King High Before Death

Holly Robinson Peete and Russell Simmons are among the celebrities reacting to the passing of 1991 Los Angeles beating victim Rodney King on Twitter. Robinson Peete called it a “tragic ending” in her Twitter post Sunday while Simmons simply offered “RIP Rodney King.” There is word that King may have been drinking and smoking marijuana in the hours before his death Sunday morning. Sources tell TMZ.com the word comes from King’s fiancée, Cynthia Kelley, who sat on the jury of King’s 1994 lawsuit against the LAPD. The two began a romance after the trial ended. According to TMZ, Kelley told friends she awoke at around 5:00 am Sunday morning to the sounds of King screaming and banging on the glass in the backyard of the Rialto, California home they shared. She reportedly says she heard a big splash when she went to grab her phone then discovered King lying in the bottom of their swimming pool. Paramedics called to the scene were unable to revive him. Police are investigating.

King’s 1991 beating at the hands of Los Angeles police officers was captured on video, sparking national outrage. It sparked riots in Los Angeles a year later when the four officers involved in the beating were acquitted at trial. The situation prompted King to step forward with a plea for peace with his now-famous quote, “can we call get along?” King, who was left with permanent brain damage after the beating, also suffered from alcohol addiction and appeared on VH1’s “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew” in 2008 and its spin-off “Sober House” the next year. He just released his memoir, “The Riot Within: My Journey from Rebellion to Redemption” in April. Rodney King was 47 years old.

Less than 24 hours after her debut on VH1’s Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta, K. Michelle released a new single, “Irrelevant”.
