‘@leighannepinnock and I are so passionate about and love song writing – it feels good to now be recognised officially as songwriters creating for the group as well as other artists.’

And while most fans were quick to congratulate the girls on their exciting news, some expressed fears that this could be the beginning of the end for Little Mix.

One wrote: ‘Don’t like the sound of that, I smell break up under the seams… hope I’m wrong.’

Another said: ‘I feel you, this is how it starts, then they’ll start releasing solo songs. Same pattern as Fifth Harmony.’

But one attempted to clear up the rumours by responding: ‘They’re basically going to be doing what they’ve always been doing: writing. They’re just recognised as official songwriters now.’

The news comes as Leigh-Anne revealed plans to launch luxury swimwear line In A Seashell, as well as becoming the face of sports brand Umbro.

Meanwhile, Jesy Nelson is exploring body image and mental health in a new documentary for BBC and Perrie Edwards has been tipped to return to where it all began as a judge on The X Factor.

Let’s just hope the girls are as good at multi-tasking as they are at releasing chart-topping tunes…

Kodak Black Responds to T.I. Diss Track: “You Should’ve Made One of Your Fa**ot A** Sons Write a Rap”

Kodak Black has gone way too far with this T.I. beef. Now he’s coming for the rapper’s sons and his wife Tiny

During an Instagram Live Monday (Apr. 15), Kodak reacted to a snippet of a song T.I. previewed over the weekend in which he seemingly addresses his recent back-and-forth with Kodak.

In the song, T.I. raps: “I’m conditioned to see the vision, you / I don’t care if you eight or under twenty-two / All that back and forth, what you trying to get into? / I said what I said and I meant it to.”

At some point during Kodak’s live, a commenter mentioned T.I.’s name, and Kodak went all the way off, accusing T.I. of clout chasing and also hurling homophobic slurs at the Atlanta rapper’s sons.

“What you making songs for? Trying to get in the game, ni**a, take your ass out of the game,” Kodak said, referring to the Kang. “You should’ve made one of your fa**ot ass little sons write a rap. Cause that sh*t really like booted in.”

The “ZEZE” rapper then went on to rant about how people are calling into radio stations all over the country to ask them to stop playing his music and putting out petitions to have him canceled before turning his attention back to T.I. and other rappers who’ve been calling him out lately for his antics.

“You ni**as really mad because you ni**as can’t rap better than me…” Kodak rambled.

“Fuck this pu**y ass sh*t… I’m in my own lane, y’all gotta come to me because this is where y’all come at for the swag, this is where y’all come to me for… man, stop playing.”

Kodak didn’t stop there. After a brief pause, he went in on T.I.’s wife Tiny, referring to a comment T.I. made about Nipsey Hussle stepping up for him if the situation was reversed.

“That bitch ugly as hell. I don’t even want piggy! He talkin’ about ‘Bro would’ve stepped up for me.’ First of all, bitch, don’t nobody want piggy, bitch,” he said as he and his crew made pig noises in the background.

“That baby was just on the ‘gram talkin’ about, ‘Let me drive the boat,’” he added. “Yeah, piggy wanna drive the boat… bitches can have the boat.”

Wendy Williams Fires Husband From Show, Kicks Him Out the House & Has His Mistress’ New Gold Ferrari Towed

Kevin Hunter’s world is crumbling all around him.

We’re learning that he’s been fired from The Wendy Williams Show, kicked out of his marital home, and the new Ferrari he bought for his (alleged) mistress was just towed away.

According to the Daily Mail, one day after being served divorce papers from Wendy Williams, the gold $215,000 Ferrari Portofino Hunter recently gifted Sharina Hudson (allegedly with Williams’ money) was towed by a Greenwich, Connecticut dealership.

The publication published photos of the towing which occurred on Friday (Apr. 12). Two acquaintances of Hunter’s watched as the car was loaded onto a truck.

Prior to the towing, Hudson was seen driving the Ferarri around New Jersey. She and Hunter were also spotted rolling around in luxury cars like Hunter’s new Rolls Royce, wearing designer clothes, and going on expensive dinner dates.

This was the last straw for Williams, a source tells Daily Mail:

“When Wendy saw the photos of him and Sharina last week on the Daily Mail going out for dinner and her driving around in a Ferrari she was furious.

“That’s what tipped her over the edge, she was like, ‘he’s gotta go.’ She now wants him out of her life completely, she’s given him 48 hours to clear his office and clear his belongings out of the house.”

The estranged couple shared a home with their 18-year-old son in Livingston, NJ. But it looks like he’ll now have to move into the secret Edgewater, NJ hideaway he bought for Hudson, who reportedly gave birth to their daughter last month.

Meanwhile, Williams is expected to move closer to her talk show’s studio once leaving the sober house where she’s been seeking treatment for several months. She was seen looking at apartments in Manhattan this week.

It was also reported that Williams fired Hunter from the Wendy show and as her manager. Hunter served as an executive producer on the show and has several business ventures with Williams, including their production company.

Though TMZ first reported the firing, the outlet soon made a correction.

Via TMZ:

Reports that Kevin Hunter has been fired are not accurate. He has not been fired, but as we reported, it’s just a matter of time. He WILL be gone from the show … but it hasn’t happened yet.

“We’re told Wendy and Kevin are close to reaching ‘an accord’ whereby he’d step down as executive producer,” the site added.

Kevin Hunter and Sharina Hudson have reportedly been having an affair for over a decade.

Sources say Hunter repeatedly told Hudson he couldn’t leave Williams because she paid all of his bills and financed their luxury lifestyle.

I’m sure both Hunter and Hudson are reeling from the effects of Williams’ divorce bombshell.

Hunter also made his first official statement today (Apr. 16) since receiving the divorce papers. He took “full responsibility” of “recent actions” and apologized to his wife.

I doubt the statement will do him any good, though. He just lost his meal ticket.

Wendy Williams’ Husband Slams Allegations That He Sexually Abused Male Musician Aveon Falstar & Used Him As a “Boy Toy”

Whoa! We did not see this coming.

On the same day cheater Kevin Hunter publicly apologized to his wife Wendy Williams amid their divorce scandal, Hunter is also slamming shocking allegations that he used male musician Aveon Falstar as a “boy toy” throughout 2018.

Falstar, whose real name is Aveon Williams, revealed the alleged sexual abusive relationship over the weekend on the podcast “unWineWithTashK” hosted by YouTube vlogger Tasha K.

Falstar said:

“It wasn’t a sexual relationship. It was much more of an abusement relationship. It was much more of a put me down and keep me as your boy toy relationship. We did [have sex] … He came over and practically raped me at 3 o’clock in the morning.”

Falstar says he became acquainted with Hunter last year after performing on The Wendy Williams Show as warm-up entertainment for the audience.

Hunter wasn’t sold on Falstar’s talent, but was urged by his alleged mistress, Sharina Hudson, to sign Falstar to his record label.

Falstar goes on to claim Hunter moved him into his New Jersey condo. Their business relationship soon turned sexual/sexually abusive and the musician says his manager used him as a “boy toy” throughout 2018.

Falstar eventually filed a “pre-suit” letter that was to Hunter’s lawyers which addressed the alleged “sexual assault and sexual humiliation.”

Falstar demanded an undisclosed amount of money to drop the suit. However, the letter went ignored by Hunter’s team.

Hunter’s lawyers released a statement today (Apr. 16) slamming Falstar’s “baseless” claims. This confirms the law firm conducted its own investigation and found the abuse claims to be without merit.

They concluded Falstar was attempting to “extort money from Mr. Hunter” and the allegations are “nothing more than an attempt to shake [Hunter] down for financial gain.”

The full statement by Hunter’s lawyer reads:

“The claims levied by Mr. Aveon Williams against Mr. Kevin Hunter are baseless and are completely false. Mr. Williams’ actions are a part of an elaborate scheme to extort money from Mr. Hunter and is nothing more than an attempt to shake him down for financial gain.

“This office did not offer to settle this matter for any amount nor did we counter their offer as, in accordance with our own independent investigation of these claims, we determined that Mr. Williams’ claims were without merit and we will not allow our client to be extorted by Mr. Williams.

“Mr. Hunter denies Mr. Williams’ claims in the entirety and it further saddens us that Mr. Williams is essentially making light of crimes involving sexual battery by levying these false claims, which a great disservice to those individuals who have actually been the victim of these types of heinous crimes.”

It has not been a great day for Kevin Hunter. Earlier, he also released his first statement regarding his ongoing divorce from Wendy Williams, his wife of 21 years.

R. Kelly Could Go Back to Jail After Falling Behind in Child Support Payments Again

R. Kelly could soon end up back in jail all over again after missing two child support payments to his ex-wife Drea Kelly.

According to TMZ, sources are saying that the embattled singer is required to pay $20,833 every month to Drea for child support, and he’s missed the last two months.

If you’ll recall, Kelly was put in jail last month for owing $161,633, which came at an odd time for him, considering he had just been arrested (and released) on sexual abuse charges.

Kelly was released from jail after a benefactor helped him clear the debt (for the second time), and when he went back to court, he asked a judge to lower the $20K amount because he couldn’t afford it.

The judge told Kelly he would consider it, but not until his next court date, which is May 8th … but that didn’t absolve him from his current obligations of $20K+ per month.

Kelly recently was paid $22,000 for an appearance at a nightclub in Illinois earlier this month, where he reportedly gave a 28-second performance and took some selfies with fans.

He asked the media to “take it easy” on him as he works to provide for his family, but apparently, the $22K went to his personal bills because he hasn’t paid any child support since being released from jail in March.

Chicago police haven’t issued an arrest warrant yet, but if Kelly doesn’t pay up soon, that could change.

Wendy Williams’ Husband Releases First Official Statement Since Divorce Announcement: “I Apologize to My Wife”

Kevin Hunter has given his first official statement since his wife Wendy Williams filed for divorce last week.

In what seems to be a desperate attempt to save his marriage/meal ticket, Hunter apologizes to his wife of 21 years for his “recent actions” and vows to “right some wrongs.”

Hunter’s statement reads in full:

“I am not proud of my recent actions and take full accountability and apologize to my wife, my family and her amazing fans. I am going through a time of self-reflection and am trying to right some wrongs.

“28 years ago, I met an amazing woman: Wendy Williams. At the time, I didn’t realize that she would not only become my wife, but would also change the face of entertainment and the world. I have dedicated most of our lives to the business empire that is Wendy Williams Hunter, a person that I truly love and respect unconditionally.

“No matter what the outcome is or what the future holds, we are still The Hunter Family and I will continue to work with and fully support my wife in this business and through any and all obstacles she may face living her new life of sobriety, while I also work on mine.

“I ask that you please give me and my family privacy as we heal. Thank you.”

A nice statement, but is it really genuine or his Hunter just trying salvage what he can before Williams leaves him with nothing?

The “recent actions” Hunter acknowledges refer to his alleged newborn daughter with longtime lover Sharina Hudson. According to reports, the two have carried on a public affair for over a decade.

Sources say Hunter refused to leave Williams because she paid all of his bills and funded his lifestyle.

Just days prior to Williams filing for divorce, Hunter and Hudson were seen together living the high life off of Williams’ money. They’re riding in luxury cars, wearing designer clothes, go on dinner dates in New Jersey, and have been seen carrying groceries from Whole Foods into their shared hideaway home.

Amid months of heavy reports that Hunter was cheating on her and had a child outside of their marriage, Williams reportedly hired a private investigator and confronted her husband on the PI’s findings. He confessed his infidelity, causing Williams to officially end their marriage.

Though Williams has yet to directly address the matter on The Wendy Williams Show, she did tell her audience that she’s planning a new and better life for herself and her 18-year-old son she shares with Hunter.

“I’m moving out of the sober house in just a few days, you know,” Williams, who’s been seeking treatment for several months, informed her viewers on Monday (Apr. 15). “It’ll be Wendy on her own.”

“Addressing my sobriety, my addiction, head-on has really helped me sort out every single compartment of my life,” she said. “I have a commitment to me and my son to come out of here better, stronger and faster than ever.”

Clearly, one of the things she had work out was how to deal with her cheating husband.
