Fifty Shades of Grey hot trailer by: Denise Young



OMG, We just saw the trailer to Fifty Shades of Grey. And when I tell you it was amazing everything I could image by reading the books. Just in case you have been in a cave and do not know anything about these series of proactive romance novels I will give you a background of the books.


 Ana Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.
Shocked yet thrilled by Grey’s singular erotic tastes, Ana hesitates. For all the trappings of success—his multinational businesses, his vast wealth, his loving family—Grey is a man tormented by demons and consumed by the need to control. When the couple embarks on a daring, passionately physical affair, Ana discovers Christian Grey’s secrets and explores her own dark desires.

Erotic, amusing, and deeply moving, the Fifty Shades Trilogy is a tale that will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you forever.
Check out the hot clip The movie comes out Valentine's Day 2015. I want to see it now. Lawd

Zendaya Coleman Explains Exit From Aaliyah Biopic

Zendaya Coleman and Aaliyah


Zendaya Coleman is clearing up the rumors. The Disney star, 17, took to Instagram on Friday, July 18, to post videos of herself addressing talk surrounding her dramatic exit from the upcoming Aaliyah biopic. 
After being cast as the late R&B singer earlier this year, Coleman decided to back out of the part in June. There was immediately speculation that she quit the movie because of widespread criticism on her casting. 

Not so, Coleman says in a series of Instagram videos. 
"Let me just explain something," she begins in the first of three videos that she posted. "The reason why I chose not to do the Aaliyah movie had nothing to do with the haters or people telling me that I couldn't do it, I wasn't talented enough, or I wasn't black enough. It had absolutely nothing to do with that."

"The main reasons were the production value wasn't there, there were complications with the music rights, and I just felt like it wasn't being handled delicately considering the situation," Coleman continued in the second clip. "I tried my best to reach out to the family on my own and I wrote a letter, but, I was unable to do so. Therefore, I felt not really morally okay with moving forward with the project." 
While Coleman is not moving forward with Aaliyah: Princess of R&B, Nickelodeon star Alexandra Shipp will be doing so. She was cast in the Lifetime flick last week. 

"Congratulations to the new woman playing Aaliyah," Coleman added in her third and final video. "I only hope that she does not have to deal with half the hate that I had to deal with. Remember that we are all human beings trying to do what we love to do.Let's practice motivation and love, not discrimination and hate."

15 Tips for a Successful Marriage


BY: Denise Young, ED.S
 
Relationships are hard to maintain and keep together, but marriage is another ball game. Most of the time one or both of the spouses starts to decrease in the romance and stop doing the things that got you interested in them in the very start. Being real and being honest about things that you are not doing can save your marriage and kick start it back into the right direction. What do you think is a successful marriage? A marriage that you do not argue or communicate much.  The fact that you are together a long time, or a marriage that you say you love each other every day.

Here are 15 Tips for a Successful Marriage that I found that may help your marriage stay on the right track.

 

 

 

Make your partner a priority

Every marriage is different, but the best marriages all share love, respect and joy. Maintaining a healthy and vibrant relationship isn’t always easy, but there are several things you can do to keep yours on track. These 15 tips will help your marriage thrive.

Remember when you were first married, and you were each other's whole world? That feeling isn't sustainable forever, but don't let your partner slip to the bottom of your priority list after kids, job, friends and hobbies. Remind your spouse -- often -- that he or she is important to you.

Keep up your appearance

Think back to when you and your spouse first met: would you have shown up for a date in a stained tee and stretched out sweatpants? The marriage license doesn't mean you can let yourself go. Show your spouse the kind of respect you'd show a coworker by looking your best, even if you're just lounging around the house.

Remember to say thank you

When you've been married awhile, it's easy to take for granted the nice things your spouse does: a cup of coffee made just the way you like it; a gentle neck rub when you've had a stressful day. Remember to thank each other for the little things; it will help you both feel more appreciated.

Keep the romance alive

Work, kids and other responsibilities can make you feel tired, and less inclined toward romance and sexual connection. But passion can be the glue that holds a marriage together during difficult times, so don't let it slip away. Make time for romantic dates and sexual play. It's important.

 

Give each other some space

This may sound counterintuitive when we're talking about bringing couples closer together, but it's important to remember that you are both unique individuals with different thoughts, feelings and interests. Cultivating and appreciating your individuality will make you more interesting to each other, and to yourselves.

Make time for fun

All work and no play make Jack and Jill dull marriage partners. Make time for play time -- with the family and just the two of you -- and you'll get a lot more enjoyment out of life and your marriage

 

 

Live your own life

With all the demands that other people and responsibilities make on your time, it's easy to put your own needs on the back burner. Make an effort to cultivate personal interests and hobbies outside your marriage. You'll both feel happier, more vibrant, and more engaged in life.

Love the one you’re with

Aside from being a great Stephen Stills song from the 70's, this is good advice. You fell in love with the personality and qualities your partner had when you met, and it's unfair to expect your spouse to change now that you're married.

Ask for what you want

Some people believe that long-term partners should be able to read each other's minds, but that's unrealistic. If you have a specific request -- a hug, a listening ear, or a particular brand of cologne for your birthday -- ask for what you want. Don't make your partner guess.

Make time for free time

We all know the effects of overscheduling: a higher level of stress. And stress leads to short tempers, frustration, fatigue and eventual burnout. Put aside time when you can both relax, whether you're enjoying an activity like walking, reading or biking, or simply watching a beautiful sunset. The important thing is to relax, and to do it together.

Believe in your spouse, and show it

It's lovely to know that someone is on your side, especially when you've made a mistake. As a loving spouse, be generous with support. Offer a shoulder to cry on, a listening ear, and give advice only when it's requested. Just as you do with your children, remind your partner of his or her wonderful qualities, and why they are the person you love and have chosen to spend your life with.

Share your thoughts and feelings

If a problem crops up in your marriage (as it inevitably will) talk about it right away; letting a problem fester only makes it harder to solve down the line. Get in the habit of checking in with each other, and schedule time alone for undisturbed heart-to-heart talks.

Be loyal to your spouse

The person you chose to marry deserves your respect, and the respect of others, so don't gossip, ridicule or complain about your partner at parties or family gatherings. If there's a problem, speak first to your spouse. Then, if you need to talk to someone, choose a trusted friend or counselor.

Let small things go

Have you heard the expression, "Choose your battles?" That's often applied to parenting, when you're deciding which of 10 irritating kid behaviors you want to correct. But it's equally applicable to life with your spouse. If your partner does or says something that hurts your feelings or creates a problem, by all means say something. But if he doesn't make oatmeal the way you would, or she forgets to put the screwdriver back where it belongs, maybe it's best to let that go.

Share the responsibility of making a home, and a marriage

The wedding ceremony isn't the end result of a courtship, it's the beginning of a partnership that will be challenging and rewarding in equal measure. Marriages are living things that need to be cultivated. That takes intention and teamwork. Think of yourselves as partners in the creation of your home and your life together, and take equal responsibility for making your marriage thrive.

Meet Kendra Wilkinson’s Daughter Alijah Mary

Tori Spelling Stella Saved My Life
Meet Alijah Mary Baskett!
After welcoming her second child with Hank Baskett in May, Kendra Wilkinson and her husband recently posed for a family photo with their two children.
Now that her family of four is complete, the reality star PEOPLE.com blogger is settling into a new routine with the couple’s now 5-week-old daughter and 4½-year-old son Hank IV.
In between learning the ropes of double parenting duties, Wilkinson is opening up to PEOPLE about everything from how she and Baskett tag team their roles to the meaning behind her baby girl’s name.

PEOPLE: How was the delivery?
Kendra: The delivery was way too easy. I was scared and nervous about another c-section, but everything ended up being so easy. I didn’t feel a pinch. I feel guilty I didn’t feel anything. Emotions were extremely high when we first met Alijah. It was a heavenly time.
PEOPLE: How did you choose the name Alijah Mary? Any special meaning behind Alijah?
Kendra: I knew I wanted a unisex name [when I was] going through the names. I ended up going to Sundance [and] I met a driver who was amazing and so kind. He was talking about his daughter who was named Alijah and I knew right then that would be my little girl’s name.
Mary is for my grandmother – I’m carrying the name on.
PEOPLE: Tell us about the first time little Hank met his baby sister. What was his reaction? What was your reaction to seeing them together?
Kendra: I’ve been dreaming about little Hank holding his little sister for so long. It was everything and everyone started crying. Little Hank had a huge smile and he now knows he really is a big brother.
PEOPLE: It’s early, but is Alijah’s personality starting to peek through? Is she more feisty or mellow?
Kendra: It is not too early — she is driven and she knows exactly what she wants in life. There is no other way around it.
PEOPLE: Parents are typically more laid-back with their second child. Have you noticed a change in your parenting? Were you super nervous with little Hank and now more at ease with Alijah?
Kendra: It is 100 percent completely different. With Little Hank, I felt like I was doing everything wrong. He cried and I came running – it was very intense.
With Alijah, it is more relaxed and I know I’m doing okay. I have room to breathe and take time to enjoy every moment.
PEOPLE: It’s 4 a.m. and Alijah is crying — who gets up? Do you and Hank tag team or are you handling most of the night shifts?
Kendra: She sleeps about an hour to two hours between feedings. I have the night shift and in the morning I bring her to the living room — “Hank’s bedroom” — and I get some sleep.
PEOPLE: You’ve always said how great a father Hank is — how is he doing with having a daughter? Have there been any special daddy-daughter moments yet?
Kendra: Hank’s ego is a little big right now. He has been able to master burping her correctly without getting it on him. He has been able to do a lot of Alijah’s first things together, like her first bath.
Since she is feeding so often, he has been on Little Hank duty lately, giving him some attention.
PEOPLE: You maintained super healthy eating habits during your pregnancy. Are you continuing that now that you’re postpartum? Do you think your bounce back will be much easier/quicker?
Kendra: I ate very healthy compared to my last pregnancy and it is very important to me to maintain a good diet going forward.
PEOPLE: You’ve said your family is now complete. What’s next for the Basketts?
Kendra: Figuring out how to balance out life once again, working on catching up on some sleep, exercising and getting back to shooting Season 3 of Kendra On Top on WEtv.

We can't not wait to see 5 Biopics That Have Us Buzzing & The Actors Who Will Star In Them


Yaya DaCosta as Whitney Houston 

 With all the drama surrounding the Whitney Houston biopic it’s tough to call how it’ll actually turn out however I trust that Yaya DaCosta will not let us down. The model/actress has many acting credits to her name but playing the late Whitney Houston will be her most challenging role to date. Angela Bassett will direct the film and as someone who knew Whitney well, I’m confident that she’ll mold Yaya to perfection.

Beyoncé kicks off new tour in Atelier Versace





Beyoncé kicked off her new tour, On The Run, with husband Jay Z in Miami, Florida Thursday night. The singer chose costumes by the Italian label Atelier Versace for the occasion.
The love affair between Beyoncé and Atelier Versace is still going strong. The singer, who already called upon the couture brand for her last tour, chose the label once more for some sizzling show outfits.
When she appeared on stage, Beyoncé was wearing a sequined long-sleeved black leotard with a very low neckline. She then changed and came back wearing another leotard, this time a multicolored one, featuring a huge Versace logo. The singer also sported a black beanie adorning a reminder of the brand's logo.
It is not the first time Beyoncé has called on a big couture name to design her stage outfits. The "Drunk In Love" singer has already been dressed by Tom Ford, Riccardo Tisci, Julien McDonald and Peter Dundas.

50 Cent and worth a cent: 50 Cent Cried After Beating Baby’s Mother?; Kenya Moore’s New Boo & More

Shanqiua-Tompkins
Rapper 50 Cent’s baby’s mother, Shaniqua Tompkins, just spilled all the tea on her former boyfriend and baby’s father. In case you missed it, 50 Cent’s son posted an emotional status on his Facebook after his famous father missed his graduation. He was extremely hurt and rightly so. Despite the fact that he and 50 had a big falling-out last year, 50 should have been there for his big day.
While 50 claimed he wasn’t invited to see his son walk across the stage and it was all a ploy by Shaniqua to keep him away, Shaniqua says otherwise. The mother-of-two visited V-103 on Friday and Chile, she told it all! From alleged domestic abuse to 50′s abandonment issues, Shaniqua didn’t mince words.
Coincidentally (or not), the video interview was later removed from the site…too bad the Internet moves faster than lawyers.
Peep the deets:
On 50 not attending their son’s graduation:
I didn’t know a parent needs an invitation to a graduation. I think you make time for what you want to make time for. You know your son is in the 12th grade. You know that children, depending on the state, graduate May, June-ish. You’re busy, but that’s why you have assistants. The assistants can call the school and you can fly on your private jet with your big gold chain.
[...]
He’s privy to the same information that I’m privy to as a parent. You can call the school or have your assistant call. I’m not being condescending. It was no tickets. It was on the lawn of the school. People that I did invite, they stood on the side to watch the graduation. You could’ve been there. That’s your choice. And being that you said you paid tuition — which he doesn’t — you should’ve had a first class ticket then. You paid tuition, right? But he doesn’t. He pays child support. He doesn’t pay tuition. He promised me, but then he changed his mind. Like, I told him I wanted Marquise to change schools because I felt like the school he was going to was getting a little rough.

Why she and 50 don’t get along…
I think me leaving him, it reinforced all the abandonment issues that he suffered as a child and it’s unfortunate and it’s sad. He never knew his dad. His mom died when he was nine, but he never lived with his mom. His grandmother told me extensively. Like, when I had Marquise, she sat me down and said, ‘He [50] was always here with me.’ So I think it reinforced those abandonment issues and I think that’s why he’s so angry. But I feel like you’re really not angry with me, you’re really angry with his mom. Not me.
And as for the alleged abuse…
I’m a person who doesn’t go out much. I’m very much a homebody so he started seeing my behavior change a little bit because I did meet someone. I was cheating on him after he done cheated on me numerous times. I met somebody. So I started going out and I’m smiling about it. He didn’t find out about it. I think he had a clue, like, ‘Where’s your mom? She’s always home.’ He came home and I wasn’t there. So when I got in, he called me first. But I know how he is so I said, ‘I’m not going to come home until you calm down.’ And when I got home he just lost it. He lost it completely. Just lost it. Even when my daughter walked in the room, he still was hitting me. I hate to sound like a battered woman but it just bothered me. He really lost it and broke down and cried. He’s so scary because he was hitting me in one moment and he’s angry, but the next minute he’s in my lap crying like a baby. So it’s a lot of issues there.
In a recent interview, 50 said this about his relationship with his son, ““Me and my son, we don’t have a relationship anymore. It’s based on his mom. He’s adopted her way of thinking. I don’t have anything negative around the concept of kids.”
Something very weird happened over the weekend. On Friday, V-103 Radio Station posted an interview with 50 Cent’s baby’s mother Shaniqua Tompkins, who was responding to 50′s claims that she didn’t invite him to his son’s graduation.  A few hours later, the interview disappeared from the station’s website completely.
Over the past few years, 50 has quieted Shaniqua a few times, most notably after he blocked her from appearing on a TLC reality show about celebrity exes (which was eventually cancelled), but the 38-year-old was ready to tell all last week as she sat down with Ryan Cameron. In her first ever radio interview, the mother of two cleared up whether or not 50 pays her $20,000 a month, disputed claims that she’s bitter and also revealed that 50 physically abused her in front of her two children. Shaniqua also plays therapist, citing his abandonment issues from childhood as the source of his bitterness towards her.
Peep the highlights:
On 50 Cent missing his son’s graduation because she didn’t invite him:
I didn’t know a parent needs an invitation to a graduation. I think you make time for what you want to make time for. You know your son is in the 12th grade. You know that children, depending on the state, graduate May, June-ish. You’re busy, but that’s why you have assistants. The assistants can call the school and you can fly on your private jet with your big gold chain.
[...]
He’s privy to the same information that I’m privy to as a parent. You can call the school or have your assistant call. I’m not being condescending. It was no tickets. It was on the lawn of the school. People that I did invite, they stood on the side to watch the graduation. You could’ve been there. That’s your choice. And being that you said you paid tuition — which he doesn’t — you should’ve had a first class ticket then. You paid tuition, right? But he doesn’t. He pays child support. He doesn’t pay tuition. He promised me, but then he changed his mind. Like, I told him I wanted Marquise to change schools because I felt like the school he was going to was getting a little rough.
How Marquise feels about his father not being at the graduation:
We haven’t discussed it yet, but on a day to day… I broke up with his dad when Marquise was 10 1/2. So he’s been with his dad from birth till then. He loves his dad. He misses his dad. So of course it hurts. He used to cry about it. He used to really get down in his spirit. But I think when a person does stupid sh-t all the time, it starts to lose its impact. [50's] just being [50] and I think Marquise feels a little sorry for him.
Child support:
I don’t even get six figures. I’ll put it this way. He pays more in his light bill in Connecticut than he pays me in child support.
The lawyers are involved. That’s number one. It goes according to lifestyle. Regardless of the fact that I was with him, Marquise was accustomed to a certain lifestyle. I lived in a $1.6 million house in New York, I drove a Range Rover, I had a BMW, my allowance was $20,000 a month. I didn’t pay for any bills. I didn’t pay for travel. So he’s supposed to live that lifestyle to a certain extent. Everything he promised in court, ‘I’m going to take him to basketball games! I’m going to take him on vacations!’ He hasn’t done any of that. He hasn’t done any of it.
On 50 claiming she hasn’t worked since the year 2000:
I had a job with TLC network and [50] came and stopped that. I had a deal with a reality show. The show was canceled but everyone got paid their full contract but me. So you say, ‘Get a job’ but I had one. TLC sent me a 1099. I filed taxes. I had one.
[...]
[50] filed his first tax return at 30 [years old]. I was working, paying for studio time, DATs, reels, incorporating companies. Rotten Apples Records which was his first corporation. He doesn’t owe me anything. He did make that promise that he’ll take care of me for the rest of my life. I knew when I left that my lifestyle was going to change. I don’t think my son’s lifestyle was going to change.
On people saying she’s bitter:
We all want the finer things in life, but I left [50]. I knew when I left him that I was leaving a lifestyle. It’s not like he left me, I left him.
Why she ignores his calls now:
I spoke with him and we spoke for a couple of hours on the phone [in September]. And when you feel like you can’t get through to a person…I know how to set boundaries. I’m not going to waste my time. He’s always going in on what happened in the relationship. Marquise is never the main focus. It’s, ‘what you did to me, you left me, you did this, you did that.’ He never takes responsibility for his actions.
On his claims she has a direct line to TMZ:
TMZ called me and I don’t know how they got my number. I spoke with TMZ once because he went on Kelly and Michael saying that, ‘My son. He’s getting ready to turn 17 and we have this great relationship and his friends love me.’ And I’m like wait a minute, you haven’t seen your son in almost two years. This month makes two years. He hasn’t seen his son since May 2012. He hasn’t spoken to Marquise since the text messages where he told him ‘F-U. I have another child. Lose my number.’ Marquise hasn’t spoken to him since.
Why she thinks he’s hurt:
I think me leaving him, it reinforced all the abandonment issues that he suffered as a child and it’s unfortunate and it’s sad. He never knew his dad. His mom died when he was nine, but he never lived with his mom. His grandmother told me extensively. Like, when I had Marquise, she sat me down and said, ‘He [50] was always here with me.’ So I think it reinforced those abandonment issues and I think that’s why he’s so angry. But I feel like you’re really not angry with me, you’re really angry with his mom. Not me.
On him finding out she cheated and beating her up in front of the kids:
I’m a person who doesn’t go out much. I’m very much a homebody so he started seeing my behavior change a little bit because I did meet someone. I was cheating on him after he done cheated on me numerous times. I met somebody. So I started going out and I’m smiling about it. He didn’t find out about it. I think he had a clue, like, ‘Where’s your mom? She’s always home.’ He came home and I wasn’t there. So when I got in, he called me first. But I know how he is so I said, ‘I’m not going to come home until you calm down.’ And when I got home he just lost it. He lost it completely. Just lost it. Even when my daughter walked in the room, he still was hitting me. I hate to sound like a battered woman but it just bothered me. He really lost it and broke down and cried. He’s so scary because he was hitting me in one moment and he’s angry, but the next minute he’s in my lap crying like a baby. So it’s a lot of issues there.
Why she left him:
I can’t say money changes a person. I was the girl that was on his grandmother’s stoop when he got shot. He went to my mother’s house to heal. I went to work when my son was four months old while he was sitting home being daddy day care, watching Sesame Street and Little Bill. He has created this persona. This 50 Cent character. I don’t know this person. It reminds me of CB4. No I don’t know this person.

Something very weird happened over the weekend. On Friday, V-103 Radio Station posted an interview with 50 Cent’s baby’s mother Shaniqua Tompkins, who was responding to 50′s claims that she didn’t invite him to his son’s graduation.  A few hours later, the interview disappeared from the station’s website completely.
Over the past few years, 50 has quieted Shaniqua a few times, most notably after he blocked her from appearing on a TLC reality show about celebrity exes (which was eventually cancelled), but the 38-year-old was ready to tell all last week as she sat down with Ryan Cameron. In her first ever radio interview, the mother of two cleared up whether or not 50 pays her $20,000 a month, disputed claims that she’s bitter and also revealed that 50 physically abused her in front of her two children. Shaniqua also plays therapist, citing his abandonment issues from childhood as the source of his bitterness towards her.
Peep the highlights:
On 50 Cent missing his son’s graduation because she didn’t invite him:
I didn’t know a parent needs an invitation to a graduation. I think you make time for what you want to make time for. You know your son is in the 12th grade. You know that children, depending on the state, graduate May, June-ish. You’re busy, but that’s why you have assistants. The assistants can call the school and you can fly on your private jet with your big gold chain.
[...]
He’s privy to the same information that I’m privy to as a parent. You can call the school or have your assistant call. I’m not being condescending. It was no tickets. It was on the lawn of the school. People that I did invite, they stood on the side to watch the graduation. You could’ve been there. That’s your choice. And being that you said you paid tuition — which he doesn’t — you should’ve had a first class ticket then. You paid tuition, right? But he doesn’t. He pays child support. He doesn’t pay tuition. He promised me, but then he changed his mind. Like, I told him I wanted Marquise to change schools because I felt like the school he was going to was getting a little rough.
How Marquise feels about his father not being at the graduation:
We haven’t discussed it yet, but on a day to day… I broke up with his dad when Marquise was 10 1/2. So he’s been with his dad from birth till then. He loves his dad. He misses his dad. So of course it hurts. He used to cry about it. He used to really get down in his spirit. But I think when a person does stupid sh-t all the time, it starts to lose its impact. [50's] just being [50] and I think Marquise feels a little sorry for him.
Child support:
I don’t even get six figures. I’ll put it this way. He pays more in his light bill in Connecticut than he pays me in child support.
The lawyers are involved. That’s number one. It goes according to lifestyle. Regardless of the fact that I was with him, Marquise was accustomed to a certain lifestyle. I lived in a $1.6 million house in New York, I drove a Range Rover, I had a BMW, my allowance was $20,000 a month. I didn’t pay for any bills. I didn’t pay for travel. So he’s supposed to live that lifestyle to a certain extent. Everything he promised in court, ‘I’m going to take him to basketball games! I’m going to take him on vacations!’ He hasn’t done any of that. He hasn’t done any of it.
On 50 claiming she hasn’t worked since the year 2000:
I had a job with TLC network and [50] came and stopped that. I had a deal with a reality show. The show was canceled but everyone got paid their full contract but me. So you say, ‘Get a job’ but I had one. TLC sent me a 1099. I filed taxes. I had one.
[...]
[50] filed his first tax return at 30 [years old]. I was working, paying for studio time, DATs, reels, incorporating companies. Rotten Apples Records which was his first corporation. He doesn’t owe me anything. He did make that promise that he’ll take care of me for the rest of my life. I knew when I left that my lifestyle was going to change. I don’t think my son’s lifestyle was going to change.
On people saying she’s bitter:
We all want the finer things in life, but I left [50]. I knew when I left him that I was leaving a lifestyle. It’s not like he left me, I left him.
Why she ignores his calls now:
I spoke with him and we spoke for a couple of hours on the phone [in September]. And when you feel like you can’t get through to a person…I know how to set boundaries. I’m not going to waste my time. He’s always going in on what happened in the relationship. Marquise is never the main focus. It’s, ‘what you did to me, you left me, you did this, you did that.’ He never takes responsibility for his actions.
On his claims she has a direct line to TMZ:
TMZ called me and I don’t know how they got my number. I spoke with TMZ once because he went on Kelly and Michael saying that, ‘My son. He’s getting ready to turn 17 and we have this great relationship and his friends love me.’ And I’m like wait a minute, you haven’t seen your son in almost two years. This month makes two years. He hasn’t seen his son since May 2012. He hasn’t spoken to Marquise since the text messages where he told him ‘F-U. I have another child. Lose my number.’ Marquise hasn’t spoken to him since.
Why she thinks he’s hurt:
I think me leaving him, it reinforced all the abandonment issues that he suffered as a child and it’s unfortunate and it’s sad. He never knew his dad. His mom died when he was nine, but he never lived with his mom. His grandmother told me extensively. Like, when I had Marquise, she sat me down and said, ‘He [50] was always here with me.’ So I think it reinforced those abandonment issues and I think that’s why he’s so angry. But I feel like you’re really not angry with me, you’re really angry with his mom. Not me.
On him finding out she cheated and beating her up in front of the kids:
I’m a person who doesn’t go out much. I’m very much a homebody so he started seeing my behavior change a little bit because I did meet someone. I was cheating on him after he done cheated on me numerous times. I met somebody. So I started going out and I’m smiling about it. He didn’t find out about it. I think he had a clue, like, ‘Where’s your mom? She’s always home.’ He came home and I wasn’t there. So when I got in, he called me first. But I know how he is so I said, ‘I’m not going to come home until you calm down.’ And when I got home he just lost it. He lost it completely. Just lost it. Even when my daughter walked in the room, he still was hitting me. I hate to sound like a battered woman but it just bothered me. He really lost it and broke down and cried. He’s so scary because he was hitting me in one moment and he’s angry, but the next minute he’s in my lap crying like a baby. So it’s a lot of issues there.
Why she left him:
I can’t say money changes a person. I was the girl that was on his grandmother’s stoop when he got shot. He went to my mother’s house to heal. I went to work when my son was four months old while he was sitting home being daddy day care, watching Sesame Street and Little Bill. He has created this persona. This 50 Cent character. I don’t know this person. It reminds me of CB4. No I don’t know this person.
