AshantiJaRule

Ashanti has reportedly ended her feud with Ja Rule after years of declining to even talk to each other.

 

Ashanti recently revealed that they have managed to sort out things before Ja Rule began his four-year prison term last year.  Ashanti told The Rickey Smiley Morning Show, that they had a three-and-a-half hour conversation.

 

Ashanti and Ja Rule were extremely close in early 2000 after being featured on each other’s music and she was labeled “Queen of Murder Inc.” Rumors  say that the two were dating. But for some unknown reasons they split apart. Cheating??????

 

Ashanti said,

 

“That’s my brother. I love him and I hope he’s doing well. I think he’s in good spirits. We’ve all been through a lot. We’ve all grown. We’ve all learned.”

“We were all young starting out in the industry. We hashed out a lot of stuff and we needed that,” she added.

Ashanti is working on her next studio album under her own label Written Entertainment. Here one of their hit classics…. “Happy”

Rick Ross is being sued for having a baby with a 36-year-old woman but not paying anything for the child support. However, the rapper recently denied being the father of the 3-year-old boy in Georgia.

According to sources, the paternity suit was filed in Broward County by Florida Department of Revenue on behalf of Tyrisha Childers. She claimed that Rick Ross had knocked her up years ago but hasn’t paid child support since.

The documents in the lawsuit says that Tyrisha Childers needs support for the baby stating that she doesn’t have any money in the bank.

As you’d expect, Rick Ross denied the allegation and claimed that he didn’t even sleep with her. He also wanted a DNA test to prove his words. Calls to both parties from TMZ were not returned.

What do you guys think? Could Rick Ross be her baby daddy?

It turns out Jay-Z isn’t necessarily cleaning up his song vocabulary after all.  The rap superstar tells the “New York Daily News” that recent reports about him dropping the inflammatory B-word from his lyrics are not true.  A poem said to be written by Jay recently appeared in “NME” proclaiming that the emcee was benching the B-word because he’s now a dad.  Jay-Z and Beyonce welcomed their daughter Blue Ivy Carter into the world on January 7th.  Jay-Z celebrated another one of his creations on Wednesday night with the reopening of his 40/40 Club in Manhattan.  Jay dropped ten-million dollars on renovations, which include 165-inch video screens and golden bats lining the walls. The rap superstar arrived in a Maybach shortly before 11 p.m. without his Queen B. “Congratulations!” a crowd of gawkers shouted as he headed down the red carpet. “Thank you!” he yelled back with a wave.

Beyonce was rumoured to be making an appearance with Jay last night, but stayed home with their newborn daughter instead. Also in attendance was Ashanti, Spike Lee, Wale and others.
