Rep. Jasmine Crockett Alleges That Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene Is Rancidly Racist, MAGA-Minded... 

Capitol Hill catfight???? More like racism running rampant.

Let’s start by stating that wrong is wrong. Now that the tone is set, let’s break down what’s apparently BEEN going on in Capitol Hill, in particular with the likes of a certain “bleach blonde bad built butch body” from Georgia.

As previously reported Democratic Rep. Jasmine Crockett and Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene turned a House Oversight committee meeting into a spectacle of accusations and personal attacks and in the newest development; Crockett is calling out Greene for being a racist.

Rep. Crockett said MTG’s words were a direct insult, and with the current climate of #BelieveBlackWomen, let’s protect her and listen clearly–the first time. 

Drama in the Committee: Oh No She Didn’t?!

In case you missed it, the conflict erupted during what was supposed to be a straightforward session to advance contempt proceedings against Attorney General Merrick Garland. 

 

However, the procedural event quickly devolved when Rep. Greene made a personal comment about Rep. Crockett’s appearance, saying, “I think your fake eyelashes are messing up what you’re reading.” That was the jab that started the problem.

To that, Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez jumped to Crockett’s aid before her fellow congresswoman held her own.

“That is absolutely unacceptable,” said AOC. “How dare you attack the physical appearance of another person!”

After a series of votes in response to Greene’s explosive rhetoric, Rep. Crockett made a dig that appeared to be directed at the Republican.

“I’m just curious. Just to better understand your ruling,” began Crockett after votes where taken in response to Green’s comments. “If someone on this committee then starts talking about somebody’s bleach blonde bad built butch body, that would not be engaging in personalities, correct?”

 

Rep. Crockett did not take Marjorie Taylor Green’s eyelash insult lightly, and on Friday she shared with CNN that the only way to label it is overt racism. 

“I’ve received so many amazing compliments from MAGA America throughout my time in Congress,” Crockett sarcastically told Abby Phillip on NewsNight.

“A lot of times when I would go viral, instead of them trying to address the things that I laid out in a very factual way, what they would try to do is say, ‘Oh, look at her hair,’ or ‘Look at her nails,’ or ‘Look at her lashes,’ and they would all then associate anything I do as a form of beautification with being quote-unquote ‘ghetto.’”

She continued,

“I am not the only woman in Congress that wears lashes, and there are women on her side of the aisle that wear lashes as well, as well as hair extensions. But she’s never felt like that was a dig that she needed to take at anyone except for me, a Black woman who sits on the committee.

“That’s all it is, it is racism. And she decided that she was going to be that person out loud and out front on yesterday.”

Greene knew she could attempt to get away with something so foul and in true Karen fashion, try to skate away from the consequences. To Crockett’s demise, that’s exactly how things went down but Crockett shared with CNN that she wasn’t going to take blows and not fight back.

Greene hit the entire room with some clever alliteration that shocked not only her colleagues but has left the internet trolling too.

Hit the flip for more of our thoughts on this matter.

On Friday, the star turned up the heat on social media to celebrate her man’s birthday, rocking a royal blue two-piece bikini with “Gotti” boldly displayed on her cakes.

Her caption read;

“Happy Birthday Babe 🎉❤️ #YouAllReadyKnow🤞🏽.”

The lovebirds jetted off to Turks and Caicos, shutting down any breakup rumors in style.

Fans and supporters flooded the comment section with love and admiration for the couple.

One user wrote, “Yup for the salty ones in the back thinking they broke up❤️ Happy G Day🎉.”

Another fan posted, “All them assumptions I knew they ain’t break up I love this for them 💪🏾👌🏾💙💙💙💙.”

The birthday post arrived just in time, addressing fans’ questions about whether the couple was still dating. Angela’s last picture or video with her boo was from December 2023.

Years after Yo Gotti professed his love for Angela Simmons in his hit “Down in the DM,” the couple confirmed their romance in January 2022 with a stylish photoshoot featuring a Rolls-Royce.

Since then, the couple has been inseparable, frequently showcasing their love and affection during birthday trips, special holidays, Gotti’s concerts, and more.

Last summer, Gotti released a track titled “The One,” a heartfelt dedication to Angela.

“You give me butterflies in your stomach, Like we still in middle school,” he rapped. “And you give me nervous vibes when I’m missin’ you/ Girl, I’m a gangsta, and you got me kissin’ you/ First time ever, some s— I’ll never do.”

The sexy video showcased snippets from their romantic escapades in Greece and Dubai, with Angela taking the spotlight as the leading lady, both in Yo Gotti’s life and in his artistry.

 

 

Here’s to wishing the Memphis rapper a fantastic birthday and countless more to come.

Messy Mayhem Manipulator Clay Gravesande Says He Was ‘Used’ By Celina Powell, Insists They’re Not... 

 

Love Is Blind but it also a hot mess.

Clay Gravesande, the season 6 contestant whose toxic tendencies got everyone talking, once again made eyebrows raise with his recent dating choices but now he’s silencing the nosie and alleging that he’s a single man.

According to Clay, this time he was the real victim. After the internet got wind of his alleged relationship with Only Fans model, Celina Powell, people were once again wondering why Clay wasted everyone’s time on the hit Netflix series.

According to the reality TV villain, however, he wasn’t aware of Celina’s interesting ways of engaging with Black men in the public eye.

In an interview with internet personalities Rory and Mal, Clay claims,

“I didn’t really know the power of Celina and her toxicity. I was just talking and…you know what I mean…I got caught up in the storm.”

The hosts then asked Clay if he knew he was being used when Powell posted the pair on the internet in a suggestive manner.

“Oh, she got me. She won. She won 100%,” said Clay.

Still, Clay found it in his heart to say some nice things about Celina, who seemingly took shots at both he and his mother via social media.

 

Celina actually is a cool a** person.

Well, that’s some true amazing grace for someone who said “f*** you and your motherf***ing mama” just days ago.

Must have talked to Jesus like his mother told him to.

Super cool person, it seems.

Meanwhile, our girl AD has been living her best life, body still tea and getting to her influencer bag.

She’s collaborated with brands like Fenty Beauty, Walmart, Dove and Cerave in recent months. She also recently took her mother along for a press trip at Netflix’s Netflix Is A Joke Fest.

She continues to be a fan favorite and collect her blessings. We truly love to see it.

Busy Making Babies: Van Jones Welcomes Fourth Child, Second With ‘Conscious Co-Parent’ 

Van Jones just welcomed a new addition to his growing family. The polarizing political pundit and his “conscious co-parent” Noemi Zamacona, introduced the world to their second child,  Jones‘ fourth.

According to PEOPLE, the 55-year-old CNN analyst embarked on a modern family journey with his friend Zamacona back in 2022.

“After the COVID lockdown, I got clear that I wanted another kid. I discovered that my friend Noemi also wanted a baby. So we decided to join forces and become conscious co-parents,” he told the outlet. “It’s a concept that I hope more people will explore and consider.”

The pair welcomed a daughter in 2022 and have now added a baby boy to their nontraditional crew.

“God is so good! This year, He blessed me and Noemi with kid #2 — a healthy, happy, beautiful baby boy,” Jones said. “Our daughter loves him so much — maybe a little TOO much. (She kisses him like Woody Woodpecker, and he barely survives her hugs!). Our modern family is thriving, blessings are flowing and we appreciate all the love and support.”

Jones also shares two sons with his ex-wife Jana Carter. The couple divorced in 2018 but it seems the Uncommon Ground podcast host wanted to keep the good times rolling.

It’s interesting to see two people actually follow through on the “if you’re not married by x age, we’ll have kids together” pact. There’s no word on how, exactly, Jones and Zamacona are creating these babies since they solely refer to each other as friends. But that’s not of our business.

With an important election looming, Jones will have his hands full both at home and at work as the eyes of the country turn to political minds to help make sense of all the mayhem.

Let’s just hope he doesn’t end up on the wrong side of history…again.

So Sorry: Slim Thug Apologizes To Cassie For Not Believing Her Amid Release Of Diddy Abuse Video... 

It looks like Slim Thug has had a change of heart amidst proof that the abuse Cassandra “Cassie” Ventura endured has surfaced. If you recall, the Houston rapper questioned the validity of Cassie’s claims after she filed a lawsuit against Sean “Diddy” Combs for physical and sexual abuse.

Now, the Houston rapper has his tail between his legs and admits his wrongdoing, although it shouldn’t have taken a video for Cassie to have been believed.

As BOSSIP reported, CNN released 2016 hotel surveillance footage of Cassie trying to escape Diddy at the now-closed Intercontinental Century City hotel before he assaulted her, and dragged her down the hallway. Many people have reacted to the footage, including the “Welcome to Texas” rapper.

In an Instagram post, he stated,

“I tried to ride with the Blk man who had no charges yet, but I can’t stand behind this.” He continued, “I’ll take this L.”

He also spoke directly to Cassie, apologizing for not believing her. Still, Slim Thug seemingly has no regrets, as he stated;

“But I still ride with my ppl until I see some sort of proof I don’t believe in blogs or civil suits.”

This isn’t the first time Slim Thug apologized to Cassie.

In November 2023, the 43-year-old was under fire for implying that Cassie was only suing Diddy to “get the bag” and that she was lying about being mistreated in her relationship with Diddy.

He later apologized for his comments. According to All HipHop, shortly after that, he spoke out against the hip-hop community for not defending Diddy amidst the many lawsuits filed against him.

 

As you can imagine, social media is speaking out on Cassie’s behalf and they’re telling Slim Thug that his apology is not accepted.

“Make the apologies as loud as the disrespect,” wrote one netizen in the rapper’s comments.

“You should do a video apologizing like you did blaming her,” added another. “Sometimes it best to keep your opinions to yourself especially on matters like abuse.”

Take that L indeed Slim Thug.

Cassie’s Husband Alex Fine Slams Abusers Amid Diddy Hotel Footage Release–‘Men Who Hit Women... 

Cassandra “Cassie,” Ventura’s husband, has again stood up for his wife. In an Instagram statement, Alex Fine gave his support to domestic violence victims while sending a damning message to those who hit women. This comes after a hotel surveillance video of Sean “Diddy” Combs abusing Cassie was released.

As BOSSIP reported on Friday, CNN released shocking 2016 footage of Diddy “hitting, kicking, and dragging” his former girlfriend, an incident that Cassie described in her November 2023 lawsuit.  As you may recall, the lawsuit was settled the day after it was filed for an undisclosed amount. Representatives for Diddy were clear that the decision to settle was “not an admission of wrongdoing” and Diddy nor his representative have commented on the video footage being released.

Alex Fine Speaks Out

Amid the footage’s release, Cassie’s husband Alex Fine made it clear that abuse victims deserve to be heard.

 

Fine posted a lengthy message to Instagram addressing multiple points and began by speaking directly to men who abuse women.

“Men who hit women aren’t men. Men who enable it and protect those people aren’t men,” wrote the personal trainer.

Fine continued to state that abuse is not “inevitable” and charged men to help prevent abuse by calling out those who cross a line.

The 31-year-old also took the time to uplift survivors of domestic abuse saying;

“To all the survivors, find the men and women who help and love. To all the survivors, your stories are real, and people believe you. To all the survivors you’re not alone, and there are men and women who care only for your well being and safety. We want you to succeed and flourish. To all the women and children, I’m sorry you live in a world where you’re not protected, and you don’t feel equal. I want to raise my daughters in a world where they are safe and loved.”

The father of two ended his statement by sending a cold message to abusers.

“You’re done, you’re not safe anymore, you’re not protected anymore, the men by your side are just as weak, you’re so miserable with yourself that death would be considered a kindness.”

In his caption, Fine stated that he wrote this message some time ago, but the words still ring true. He also mentioned wanting his children to grow up and live in a world where women and girls are safe and protected and shared the number for the domestic violence hotline.

 

Fine and Ventura met while she was still in a relationship with Diddy. Shortly after they broke up in 2018, she began dating Fine. The couple wed in 2019 and have two beautiful daughters; Frankie, 4, and Sunny, 3.

 

Social Media Continues To React To The Diddy Abuse Video

As previously reported, many people reacted to the footage on social media. Amid Fine’s Instagram statement, more users applaud his strength and care for his wife, Cassie.

Fans also credit Fine for “saving “Cassie and giving her the love she deserves.

We continue to wish Cassie and her family the best.

Aubrey O’Day Reacts To Shocking 2016 Video Of Diddy Kicking & Dragging Cassie: ‘The Picture Is... 

Aubrey O’Day has more to say about her experience with Diddy after the horrifying 2016 video of the Bad Boy founder beating, kicking, and dragging Cassie. “All I have is receipts,” said the former Danity Kane singer.

As BOSSIP previously reported, the graphic surveillance footage is from the InterContinental Hotel in Century City, Los Angeles. Many recalled that Cassie described this incident and other instances of assault in her now-settled federal lawsuit.

Still, the first corroborating footage going public shocked the world… except for Aubrey, who seemed tragically unsurprised. She took to X (formerly Twitter) on Friday to speak out for Diddy’s victims and then advocate for herself.

Since the earliest allegations of misconduct, Diddy has maintained his innocence. Aubrey’s carefully crafted responses to this latest revelation hint that there is more to the story.

The singer responded to one of many comments tagging her about the headlines. The X user credited Aubrey with “telling us for YEARS that he wasn’t right.” She responded, “Prayers up for all his victims.”

 

“This is a much bigger problem than I truly think we know,” the account responded to Aubrey.

“Beyond bigger sadly,” she added about the situation which has unfolded in the six months since Cassie’s lawsuit.

Aubrey then posted a screen recording of the CNN video report and article. She warned survivors about the potentially triggering content but shared it to help the public understand.

“The picture is getting a lot more clear for you all I can imagine.. abuse survivors or anyone that triggers easily might not want to watch (images are disturbing). #Cassie #diddy #kimporter prayers up for all his victims,” she wrote.

The reality star came under fire for a now-deleted post that she has yet to reveal details of her own experience yet. One response warned that “you need to have receipts before you put stuff out Diddy gave you an opportunity of a lifetime.”

While Aubrey has not revealed any yet, it may only be a matter of time.

“I grew up with 2 lawyers. All i have is receipt’s. Additionally, my talent allowed me the opportunity of a lifetime.. get that straight,” she clapped back.

She also indicated that the cause is much bigger than her own “receipts.” The Baddies: Carribbean star urged a concerned fan to challenge a system that allows abusers to stay in power.

“Let’s focus on changing the system now so no one has enough power to bury or discredit voices,” she added.

The former Danity Kane member pushed for a change to the laws because of how hard it is for victims to reconcile traumatic experiences. “People think traumatic episodes are easy to talk about,” one supporter wrote.

“…or even understand fully and come to terms with immediately, especially at young ages,” Aubrey continued.

“It can take decades. The laws need to be amended in regards to the statue of limitations protecting perpetrators re harassment, assault, & rape.”

Another fan lamented silencing DARVO (Deny, Attack, Reverse Victim & Offender) tactics “to turn the tables and make YOU out to be the liar.” Aubrey tied the observation to the viral hypothetical about women feeling safer with a wild bear than a man.

Aubrey O’Day Has Spoken Out About Diddy Since Before Cassie’s Lawsuit

When the mogul appeared to drum up goodwill by returning Bad Boy publishing rights to artists, Aubrey exposed Diddy for using the deals to demand NDAs.

In the documentary, TMZ Presents: The Downfall of Diddy, the former MTV celebrity called it an attempt to buy her silence for $300.

Aubrey has been a vocal supporter of Diddy’s alleged victims since Cassie’s November 2023 lawsuit. Her advocacy continued as several other people came forward with allegations of sexual harassment, sexual assault, and sex trafficking.

Diddy denies all allegations against him.

BOSSIP will continue to cover these legal battles as new developments unfold.
