In the midst of a contentious custody battle, rapper Jeezy says that he’s seen his and Jeannie Mai’s two-year-old daughter only eight times this year and has no clue where she is living.


 

On April 16, 2024, Jeezy petitioned a Fulton County, GA court with the latest terms of a custody agreement. The new documents, obtained by Hollywood Unlocked, request that Jeezy be allowed to share custody with his estranged wife, Jeannie Mai, despite not knowing where his youngest child lives.

According to the petition, Jeezy wants “equal parenting time.” He claims that the child has not been staying in Georgia, where Mai reportedly lives. The documents also allege that the child has been living in three different states so far during the month of April.

Wild ’N Out comedian DC Young Fly got candid recently about his thoughts on the passing of his girlfriend and mother of his children, Jacky Oh, a year after she died.


 

Young Fly appeared on Cam Newton’s podcast and discussed his perception of gluteal augmentation, better known as BBL’s.

“I get why women want to enhance themselves. But fellas, we have to do more than just continuously telling our women that they’re beautiful,” Youngfly said. “We have to continuously tell them that they’re gorgeous. We have to always… don’t make your woman feel like she has to go do something even if you [are] following another chick. Yo, just love a woman. That’s it”

Young Fly also directed his attention to women, suggesting they listen to their men. The actor candidly shared how looking at other women with BBL’s made him wonder why Jacky didn’t make it.

“This is what I’m reminded everyday. If you look at it, bro… the rate of the BBL’s… the women today. It’s a lot of women who have BBL’s when you go outside, I’m constantly reminded like, ‘They made it. There go another big booty. She made it ‘Go in the club.’ All these (expletives) made it.”

According to MadameNoire, Jacky died in May of last year after traveling to Miami for a “mommy makeover.”

Beyoncé made history once again. According to Billboard, she officially became the first Black woman to top the Country Albums chart with her release of Cowboy Carter.


 

On April 8, the album broke to number one in the country, surpassing Morgan Waller’s One Thing At A Time on the country charts, and passing Future and Metro Boomin’s We Don’t Trust You on the Top Album list. Cowboy Carter also has more than 300 million streams and around 168,000 in traditional album sales.

Before the album’s release, Beyoncé divulged the inspiration behind its creation on Instagram.

“This album has been over five years in the making,” she shared. “It was born out of an experience that I had years ago where I did not feel welcomed… and it was very clear that I wasn’t. But because of that experience, I did a deeper dive into the history of country music and studied our rich musical archive. It feels good to see how music can unite so many people around the world while also amplifying the voices of some of the people who have dedicated so much of their lives educating us on our musical history.”

Disney’s forthcoming prequel to their 2019 live action version of The Lion King released its first trailer recently. Mufasa: The Lion King will feature Beyoncé and her daughter Blue Ivy Carter as mother-daughter duo Nana and Kiara in the film.


 

The prequel will focus on Mufasa, voiced by Aaron Pierre, and Scar, voiced by Kevin Harrison, Jr., and their adventures traveling through the African Pride Lands. Beyoncé will return to reprise her role of Queen Nana from the first film.
