Kanye West claims he's been trying to divorce Kim Kardashian West
On July 21, Kanye West shocked the world by going on a Twitter spree attacking wife Kim Kardashian West and mother-in-law Kris Jenner. Kanye's tweets revealed everything from how he's been trying to divorce Kim for more than a year to claims the movie "Get Out" is based on his life in the Kardashian family to accusations that Kim and Kris have been trying to get him placed on a 51/50 mental health hold. "I been trying to get divorced since Kim met with Meek [Mill] at the [Waldorf hotel] for prison reform," read one. Kanye also branded his mother-in-law "Kris Jong-Un." While fans were split on how to interpret all of this, Kim shared a message on Instagram explaining, "As many of you know, Kanye has bipolar disorder. Anyone who has this or has a loved one in their life who does, knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand. I've never spoken publicly about how this has affected us at home because I am very protective of our children and Kanye's right to privacy when it comes to his health. But today, I feel like I should comment on it because of the stigma and misconceptions about mental health. Those that understand mental illness or even compulsive behavior know that the family is powerless unless the member is a minor. People who are unaware or far removed from this experience can be judgmental and not understand that the individual themselves have to engage in the process of getting help no matter how hard family and friends try." But that's not all that happened…

Does death stalk the life of Denzel Curry? It's a lurid thought to attach to an energetic 24-year-old who has come up from the South Florida SoundCloud rap underworld and can now reasonably be described as a hip-hop leading man. But as Curry's career has continued its unbroken upward trajectory, he has been forced to watch others fall.
The Carol City native is part of a rising generation of rappers that has already suffered heavy losses. Drug abuse claimed the lives of Lil Peep and Mac Miller. The death of the problematic XXXTentacion — fatally shot in 2018 in Deerfield Beach — inspired Curry's song "Speedboat" and a promise to himself: "My dawg didn't make it to 21, so I gotta make it past 24."
The most recent addition to the list is Juice Wrld, who died this past December after suffering a seizure likely induced by substance intoxication. Onstage the day after Juice died, Curry called for a moment of silence in memory of his fallen comrade and then concluded the tribute with the assertion: "On a real note, if somebody is going through something, man, make sure you check on them."
Oprah Winfrey has been in some hot water since her connection to documentaries and interviews about legendary black men in the industry. She has been accused repeatedly of going after black men in the entertainment industry, such as Russell Simmons’ and Micheal Jackson, having interviews with their sexual assault accusers.

Under the photo captioned, “Did that fake ass Michael Jackson shit to tarnish his name with them lying ass kids and here she is with a known rapist smiling and laughing,” he wrote in the caption. “Fuck you and Gayle. Free bill Cosby.”
Snoop’s post is Maybe in response to a clip CBS posted This Morning posted with Gayle King speaking to WNBA’s Lisa Leslie earlier this week. Their conversation included King bringing up Kobe Bryant’s 2003 sexual assault case. The host asked Leslie, who was close to Bryant’. The question asked if the allegations make his legacy “complicated” for her. In response, Leslie responded, “It’s not complicated for me,” then later added, she didn’t think it’s something that we should keep hanging over his legacy.”
After the clip posted, King got dragged online. Gale issued a response to the chaos saying, “I know that if I had only seen the clip that you saw, I’d be extremely angry with me too,” King ended with “no disrespect intended” however Snoop isn’t having here it.
