Living Life Despite Drama: Kevin and Eniko Hart Do Lunch in Atlanta

 

Eniko Hart knew exactly who Kevin Hart was when she decided to marry him — so she’s accepted his apology and is standing by her husband in this alleged extortion scandal.

“Eniko is aware of what’s going on and that Kevin is not perfect,” the insider explained. “She has accepted his apology and is focused on her pregnancy and what’s to come. She has no plans for divorce. She believes Kevin is a good husband and always comes home to her.”

The biggest issue Parrish is struggling with is the massive amount of media coverage the scandal has gained.

“She is bothered that these stories find their way into the press and that people are asking her about it,” the source said. “But she does her best to ignore it all and move forward. She listens to her husband and is not going to get stressed out. She is supporting him and standing by him.”

 

The woman at the center of the Kevin Hart sex-extortion scandal has officially identified herself and is ready to set the record straight.

On Tuesday, high-powered lawyer Lisa Bloom tweeted that she is now representing “the woman at the center of the Kevin Hart scandal,” identifying her as Montia Sabbag.

Sabbag, whom Bloom writes is an “actress and model,” will address the brewing scandal during a press conference Wednesday morning, the lawyer tweeted.

According to Bloom, Sabbag “was briefly involved with Kevin Hart a month ago. Since that time, she has been the subject of false, vicious attacks on her character.”

At the press conference, Bloom says she and Sabbag “will speak out … about the true facts of this situation, and will announce their next legal move.”

The tweet comes after Hart revealed an alleged extortion attempt against him in an emotional apology video to his pregnant wife, Eniko Parrish, and his children.

In the video, posted to Instagram, Hart claimed that there was someone who was trying to make “financial gain” from his misbehavior.

Reports surfaced over the weekend that federal officials are investigating an alleged blackmail attempt that reportedly includes a “sexually provocative” video of Hart.

“I made a bad error in judgement and I put myself in a bad environment where only bad things can happen and they did,” Hart admitted in this apology video.

As the story continues to unfold, the only lesson in this situation is that regardless of how you choose to live your life out in public, remember that someone close to you will be affected by your choices. So whether there is truth to this story or not, Kevin has to learn that when you have kids, everything you do affects them. So even if there is no respect for the wife, at least respect the kids who will have to read about their dad in the news. Let’s hope something positive comes out of this matter because right now, it looks horrible.

Jenifer Lewis Settles with LA Fitness After Getting Scammed By Gym Employee-Turned-Lover

Jenifer Lewis walked away with $13,000 from LA Fitness in exchange for dropping the lawsuit she filed after getting scammed by an employee. 

via TMZ:

Lewis claimed in a lawsuit she met an LA Fitness front desk manager at the West L.A. club. She says they got chummy, started dating, and 3 months into the relationship he convinced her to loan him money for a movie he was producing.

She says he fleeced her for $50k. She sued the gym because she claims he was a known con man with a record who had served time, but wasn’t vetted before he was hired.

Jenifer, who told her story on TMZ Live, dismissed the lawsuit against LA Fitness in return for the cash.

DMX Is Clean & Sober But Staying In Rehab

DMX is making some positive progress. X’s lawyer stated that the rapper’s cleaned up so much in rehab, he’s “back to being human again.”

Via TMZ:

We spoke with Murray Richman who told us X has already packed on 40 lbs. Murray says he had been nothing but skin and bones before starting treatment in late August at a New England facility.

The program is almost complete, but Murray wants X to stay another 30 days since he’s been responding so well … they’re letting him take day trips with a friend to a nearby town. We broke the story … a judge signed off on rehab after the rapper said his house arrest for tax evasion wasn’t helping him improve. Murray says they’ll tackle the court case once DMX has successfully finished treatment. He’s also not ruling out a tour in the future. 

 

This is incredible news because it’s always difficult seeing anyone struggle with an addiction and tumble downwards. So many love to speak down on a person when they are going through something but it’s good to know that he is improving for the better. It would be nice to see DMX back on track with his music and personal life.

Jay-Z and Kanye West Plan To Bury Hatchet in Latest Feud EXCLUSIVE!

According to TMZ, Kanye West and Jay-Z will be meeting face-to-face soon to squash their latest beef, which will help end a lawsuit that looms over their multi-million dollar Tidal dispute.

Via TMZ:

Sources close to Yeezy and Hova with direct knowledge of the situation tell us, their lawyers have been trying to settle a $3.5 million dispute Kanye has with Tidal. As we reported, Kanye had fired off a letter to Tidal stating his contract with them was over because Tidal didn’t live up to his end of the bargain. Specifically, Kanye says he didn’t get advances and bonuses that totaled $3.5 mil. We’re told Kanye and Jay have not agreed to settle, and the reason became apparent to everyone. The impasse had nothing to do with their business dispute — $3.5 mil is peanuts to both of them. They couldn’t settle because they each harbor animosity toward the other.

Jay was enraged when Kanye attacked Beyonce and Blue Ivy at his concert last October. Kanye felt Jay should have cut him a break because that was the time he was melting down and just a few weeks after the concert, he was placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold.

As one source put it, “The Generals [Kanye and Jay] have to meet face-to-face. When that happens, the resolving the money dispute is a piece of cake.”  We’re told Kanye is up for the meeting and Jay is also inclined to meet. It shouldn’t be hard. Now that Jay and Bey live in a Bel-Air mansion, they are literally down the street from Kanye and Kim. We’re told the meeting should go down soon, and once it does their Tidal dispute will quickly end.

The Evolution of Sammie With New Album “Coming Of Age” Is Sensual!

“I’ve learned that fear limits you and your vision. It serves as blinders to what may be just a few steps down the road for you. The journey is valuable, but believing in your talents, your abilities, and your self-worth can empower you to walk down an even brighter path. Transforming fear into freedom.”- Soledad O’Brien.

Imagine a journey of pain, struggle, fear, humility and faith. Sammie’s new album takes us down a sensual path of his life through a combination of heartfelt vocal’s and pulsating escapades. To say that he is making a return to R&B is an understatement. Sammie has been creating and releasing music under his own label, Star Camp Music as an independent artist, for a while now.

Despite some shaky moments in his career, Sammie has remained solid in an industry that can either make you or break you as an artist.  With every journey comes the strongest tests of faith, and “Coming of Age” depicts the life of a young boy evolving into a man through love and life experiences.

Through his music on the new album, we evolve with him. In 2006 when Sammie returned to the scene with his single, “Come With Me”, the world was drawn back towards the Sammie we had missed and grew to love. Now in 2017, we are not only “coming with him” but coming into age with him.

His growth and journey through life and music is phenomenal!

The first track on the album titled, “COA” showcases the most emotional but heartfelt display of love and change. Sammie sings, “What if I told you I changed…would you want me back?”.  The song reaches out into your soul to explain the coming of growth and a plea to allow another opportunity.

How many ladies would open your heart back up to a man who displays growth and change not only in words but through actions? Listening to this song is a reflection of just how powerful Sammie is with his vocals and creativity! He has the gift to transition words into a visual image within your mind, and that within itself is an art form that vocalists strive to obtain.

 

                                        The entire album is amazing!

Evolution is beautiful when you see an artist survive some of the toughest parts of his career. Yet to know the struggle is to love the growth, and we definitely see growth in him. The fans, to include myself who kept following are beyond excited for him with the much deserved recognition for his music this year. For those who know, back in 2009 Sammie went through a rough period with previous management and more, so to be at this height in his music career as an independent artist is nothing short of a blessing.

My favorite track among many on the album is, “Be Alone” and even though I’m sure women all over find it hard to believe Sammie could be alone, the track speaks volumes. A very attractive, charming man in the entertainment industry who can sing like Sammie with no auto-tune is captivating. Yet it comes with a lot of stress and curiosity as to whether the ladies are into you or just into your fame. So despite being able to easily get girls, he expresses that he’s tired of the same stuff, and the fear of possibly being alone because of it all. With growth comes the knowledge that a man needs more than just pretty women parading after him, but also a stable and loyal woman who can wither the storm with him. A woman who understands his status and yet seeks to add and not take from his light.

While Sammie often states that he is not trying to be the “Prince of R&B” but merely a savior to the love for R&B music that has faded over the years, many who are fans are just happy that he remained himself through everything that was meant to break him.

Sometimes while trying to save others…we save ourselves and that’s the start of something amazing.

In the midst of creating music, Sammie is not only bringing us on his life journey vocally but visually as well. A documentary of his story is set to release soon.

 

So if you haven’t got your copy of his new album then my question to you is, What are you waiting for?

You can get the copy of the album, “Coming Of Age” now on Google Play Music, iTunes, Tidal, and Spotify!
