Ice Cube is about to seriously f**k over his investors’ bank accounts–NO VASELINE! Apparently Ice Cube and his partner, Jeff Kwatinez, founders of Big3 Basketball League are headed to court after a group of Qatari nationals misled them into believing they had a connection to the Qatari Royal Family and only paid a little more than half the money agreed to invest in the league!

In the suit,  they accuse the investor group of defamation, libel, and interference with contractual relationships. The complaint alleges that one of the investors spread a false and harmful rumor about Kwatinetz, referring to the league’s African-American players as “Rich Nigg*s,” racist language he said he “never had and never would” use. It also claims the investors told players and outsiders that the league was poorly managed. They argue in the lawsuit,

When Ice Cube and Jeff Kwatinetz pursued their lifelong dream of starting a basketball league from the ground up, and invested their personal assets and time in doing so, the last thing on their list of plausible concerns and impediments would be the malicious and reckless conduct of foreign actors and compromised agents and actors working on their behalf. 

The investors included Ahmed Al-Rumaihi, a former Qatari diplomat and head of Qatar Investments; Faisal Al-Hamadi, managing partner of Ory Capital; and Ayman Sabi, a Libyan-born American citizen who claims to be a board member of the Qatar Investment Authority. Together, they formed Sport Trinity, an investment vehicle whose benefactor, the suit alleges, is Sheikh Abdullah bin Mohammed bin Sau Al Thani, chief executive of the Qatari Investment Authority. The suit says,

Touting their love of basketball and their familial connections and relationships with the royal Al-Thani Family in the State of Qatar, and thus access to vast resources and capital, defendants were brought to Big3 as passive investors and introduced by the league’s former president and commissioner.

In the lawsuit, Kwatinetz and Cube say they expected the investors to be passive, but instead they were too involved in the league. They give examples of their over involvement which they claim included: showering select Big3 employees with lavish gifts, hosting parties on yachts and in their Los Angeles mansions, extending use of their expensive cars, and bragging about their association with the league’s celebrity investors and NBA stars. The suit claims,

These members and associates of the royal family made excuse after excuse for not paying, all of which is documented in text messages and emails, where the blame for their failure to fund the millions they owed to Big3 ran the gamut from their ‘sinuses,’ ‘hiking,’ it being a ‘long day bro,’ and to bad press regarding Qatar associations with alleged funding of terrorism. 

In the suit, Kwatinetz says that he was confronted after a memorial service in February for Big3 player Rasual ButlerHe says that he asked Al-Rumaihi  if the balance, believed to be $4 million, would be wired the following Monday. In response, he says that Al-Rumaihi proposed a surprising counteroffer: a 25% stake in the league, for Ayman to be named chief operating officer and to be afforded “respect as a royal family member”. An argument ignited between the two and Kwatinetz says that Al-Rumaihi threatened. The suit alleges,

“Al-Rumaihi became incensed and loudly screamed at Mr. Kwatinetz and threatened his life and his family, noting, ‘You don’t know who I know in LA and what they’re capable of’. ‘You should think of your safety and the safety of your family.’

Reportedly, that matter is now is in arbitration. The civil suit is a separate action, seeking a jury trial to recover approximately $20 million per player in harm to Big3 and its founders’ reputations.

Yikes! We hope Ice Cube and Jeff get a happy pay day. This is definitely why they say all money is not good money! We will keep you posted!

As you may already know the couple has faced their fair share of problems over the last few years with both being incarcerated and now Joe faces deportation after learning he has never been an American citizen.  Many would think Wendy would encourage her to stand by her man, but the talk show host wants Teresa to prepare to move on with her life without Joe.

“If I were Teresa, I wouldn’t even want him home at this point,” she said, adding that she hopes Teresa remains on The Real Housewives of New Jersey. “I would not have him living in my house.”

And when it comes to the couple’s four daughters, Williams said they’re probably better off if their parents are happy.

“I am all about a family staying together,” she said. “But families don’t stay together because of the kids. In fact, sometimes it’s worse for the kids.”

It was revealed on Thursday that Joe is now one step closer to deportation as his appeal against the decision to deport him was denied.

“We are extremely disappointed that the Board of Immigration Appeals has denied Mr. Giudice’s appeal,” James J. Leonard Jr., the Giudice family attorney, told PEOPLE in a statement. “We have filed a stay with the Third Circuit Court of Appeals and will continue to fight to keep Mr. Giudice in the United States, the only country he knows, and reunite him with his wife and four daughters.”

Wendy’s comments may be hitting a little too close to home as she is dealing with her pending divorce from her husband of over 20 years, Kevin Hunter. We would like to see Joe be granted some clemency, at least for his four daughters’ sake. On Wendy’s end she is at least keeping it “business as usual;” still hosting her daytime talk show and even making light of her divorce by referring to herself as a “single woman.”

The spokesman says she is pleading guilty to racketeering conspiracy and racketeering.

Prosecutors have accused her of recruiting sex slaves for Keith Raniere, who co-founded the controversial self-help group Nxivm and its subgroup, DOS, described as an all-female secret society in which women allegedly were forced to be sexually subservient to Raniere.

World governments are riddled with conspiracy theories like water is wet. However, one conspiracy theory is really taking flight following the tragic murder of rapper, Nipsey Hussle. As you know, he was killed yesterday outside of his Crenshaw-located Marathon Clothing Store, from multiple gun shots. Nipsey announced last year he was working on a documentary about Alfredo Bowman, better known as “Dr. Sebi,” an herbalist and self-proclaimed healer who claimed to have cured illnesses like HIV/AIDS through holistic means.

nipsey hussle dead h

He died shortly thereafter from pneumonia, and many believe global pharmaceutical companies and world governments wanting to profit off the money made from treating diseases instead of curing them outright. Nipsey’s documentary was allegedly suppose to connect his untimely demise to these aforementioned entities. Fans believe not only did he discover Dr. Sebi’s killers, but that he indeed had discovered how to heal other holistically. This leads many to believe this information cost Nipsey his life.

This is not the first time a celebrity death has been conspired and linked to Dr. Sebi. Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes of TLC also made the same claims about his healing powers and curing of HIV/AIDS in the latter years of her life and subsequently was killed in a tragic car accident. See a few trending fan reactions and memes below:

There were 3 victims, Nipsey was shot 6 times and I’m sure someone more studied in Numerology can point out a lot more🙏🏾they are going to try to spin this narrative and make it seem like this was gang related and it’s just another sad case of “black” on “black” crime and how we need to turn in our guns🤔some of us will believe it but just know there are many of us waking up from a long slumber and just know, we know. We don’t have to announce everything that will come as a result of this assassination neither but please understand we will MOVE differently 🙏🏾 Rest Up King, we got you🌟🌟🌟#drsebi #nipseyhussle #movedifferent
