July has been quite an eventful month in entertainment.

I’m talking about social media wise. Our timelines have been busier more than ever these last couple of weeks, with breaking headlines and coverage over some of the most shocking and just plain idiotic topics to scroll by on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. It almost seems as though once the warm weather comes out so does the shade, drama, and scandals. Check out the top 5 hot topics this past month had to offer our social media.

R Kelly’s “Alleged” Sex Dungeon
So “allegedly” R. Kelly turned underage women into sex slaves … so claims the family of one of the young women who is living with the R&B singer. Kelly has since denied the rumors but as you can see social media won’t let it die.

Usher Letting It Burn
This case really threw us all for a loop, Grammy Award-winning singer Usher reportedly had to pay a $1.1 million lawsuit settlement after claims that the performer gave a close family friend herpes.
The woman, who was reportedly a celebrity stylist, and get this, best friends and bridesmaid to Usher’s then wife Tameka Foster accused the performer of “consciously and purposefully” not notifying her of his infection while having unprotected sex. I guess you can say the singer is bringing a whole new meaning to “Let it burn”. Seriously though, wrap it up, it only takes 2 seconds promise.

Donnie and His White House Shenanigans
You guessed it! Donnie has hit us with “another 1” (in my DJ Khalid voice). If it’s not one thing it’s another, after the whole denial of Trump Care going down earlier in the month, to him bashing Sessions via his infamous Twitter account to even STILL finding a way to poke at both former President Barack Obama and Senator Hillary Clinton. Trump has had quite the eventful month. At this point, can you really be surprised with what Donnie is doing? I mean really? He hasn’t even been in office for a year, and he’s caused more hell than ever. At this point just buckle up, and ride with caution, because this is going to be a long, very long 4 years. Oh, and he just banned trans people from the military too. (smh)

Keeping Up With Rob & Chyna
Joanne the Scammer would be proud, Rob and Chyna definitely made headlines for yet another dragged out social media fight. Rob and Chyna went at it once again via Instagram, when Rob accused Chyna of cheating, in which led to a frenzy of leaked photos, videos, and a hell of a lot of shade. However, Chyna has the last laugh because not only was she granted a restraining order out of it, but also a viable lawsuit. Can’t wait to see it all on the new season of KUWTK!

Sir Carter and Rumi 1 month today. 🙏🏽❤️👨🏽👩🏽👧🏽👶🏾👶🏾

Introducing Sir and Rumi Carter
I had to keep it cute for the last top moment that July has had to offer. Queen B finally gave us a glimpse of her and Jay-Z’s latest additions to the family. Born on June 13th Sir and Rumi Carter both asleep in mothers arms, made their official debut to the world via Beyonce’s Instagram.The image captioned, “Sir Carter and Rumi 1 month today” while using several emojis to accent the joyful mood.

Multi-platinum and seven-time Grammy award-winning singer-songwriter, artist, actress and producer Toni Braxton is set to receive the coveted Don Cornelius Legend Award. Braxton became an immediate R&B superstar after the release of her self-titled debut album in 1993. Her debut album received multiple awards, including three Grammy Awards (for Best New Artist and two consecutive awards for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance in 1994 and 1995). Her second album, “Secrets” was certified 8x platinum and included her greatest hit titled, “Un-Break My Heart,” the Diane Warren-penned ballad which spent 11-weeks at number one. Over the span of her career, Braxton has sold over 67 million records, including 41 million albums, worldwide. Toni’s current single, “Deadwood,” was released by Def Jam Recordings in September and her new album, “Sex & Cigarettes,” her first in seven years, will be out in early 2018.

The third annual Lady of Soul Award will be presented to Grammy Award-Nominated, multi-platinum, female R&B trio SWV. SWV became one of the most successful R&B groups of the 1990s. They had a series of hits, including “Weak,” “Right Here/Human Nature,” “I’m So into You,” and “You’re the One.” They have sold more than 25 million records, making them one of the best-selling girl groups of all time. Last year’s Lady of Soul Award went to R&B icon Brandy. Both Toni and SWV are being recognized for their longstanding presence in the music industry and influence on the world of soul and R&B music past and present.

Baby #4!? Kourtney Kardashian (@kourtneykardash) is Allegedly Expecting Child w/ Boyfriend, Younes Benjima!

Another day and another pregnant Kardashian! It looks like in 2018 the Kardashian-Jenner Clan will be setting the world’s population a new high as Kourtney Kardashian joins her younger sisters Kylie Jenner, Khloé Kardashian, and Kim Kardashian in “new baby-hood!”

Yep, Kourtney is  allegedly pregnant AGAIN, and not by Scott Disick, but by her current boyfriend Younes Benjima!

Another day and another pregnant Kardashian! It looks like in 2018 the Kardashian-Jenner Clan will be setting the world’s population a new high as Kourtney Kardashian joins her younger sisters Kylie Jenner, Khloé Kardashian, and Kim Kardashian in “new baby-hood!”

Yep, Kourtney is  allegedly pregnant AGAIN, and not by Scott Disick, but by her current boyfriend Younes Benjima!

via Life and Style:

“She was thrilled to learn she was expecting,” a source told Life & Style exclusively. However, for now, Kourtney and her boyfriend of one year Younes Bendjima are only telling close family and friends. “She loves being part of a large family and having so many siblings,” the insider adds, “and she wants the same for Penelope, Mason, and Reign.”

Kourtney, 38, has made it very clear she wanted more kids — even after her split from longtime boyfriend Scott Disick. “I would have more. I could see myself with six kids,” Kourtney told Cosmopolitan magazine. “I just don’t know what’s in God’s plan.” She does know that Younes, 24, is the perfect dad-to-be.

“She needs a man who will be both present and sober,” the source explained. “With his charming personality and intelligence, Younes will make the perfect father.” However, it doesn’t look like Scott, 34, is happy about her new relationship. Life & Style previously reported that Scott was trying to ruin Kourt’s relationship with the young model.

“Scott will do anything to sabotage Kourtney’s relationship, including showing up wherever Kourtney and Younes are hanging out together,” the source said. “He’s also been asking around, trying to get some dirt on Younes so he can bring it back to Kourt and persuade her to dump him.” It doesn’t seem Kourtney is too concerned about her ex after she recently made her romance with Younes Instagram official on a couple’s vacation to Paris. 

We are really hoping this is another Kardashian rumor, but then again when any member of this family is involved there’s a hint of truth. If Kourtney is pregnat–CONGRATS! If not, she should look into getting her tubes tied. Kendall you in danger girl!

Yikes! Kodak Black (@KodakBlack1k) Hit w/ Sexual Misconduct Charges!

Just when we thought we heard the last of Kodak Black, the controversial rapper makes headlines once again. This time around it is not because he is disrespecting Lil Wayne or being shaded by Charlemagne Tha God on The Breakfast Club.

This time, unfortunately, Kodak Black has been indicted with sexual misconduct charges!

Kodak Black is facing new criminal charges. According to reports, the rapper was indicted on first-degree sexual conduct charges by a grand jury in South Carolina on Monday.

According to ABC affiliate WPDE, Kodak is accused of sexually assaulting a teenage girl back in February 2016 at the Comfort Inn & Suites. The assault allegedly happened after a show at the Treasure City nightclub. The teen first reported the incident to her school nurse in Richland County.

Kodak, whose real name is Dieuson Octave, was arrested for criminal sexual conduct last November and was released from the Florence County Detention Center on December 1st on a $100,000 bond.

If convicted, he faces up to 30 years in prison.

 All we can say is yikes, yikes, we hope he has a good attorney, and YIKES again! We also want to ask is there something in the air? Kodak is not the only rapper charged with sexual impropriety. As you all know rap star Nelly was arrested (and released) for second-degree rape. Nelly has come forward to proclaim his innocence. Kodak, however, has yet to release an official statement. We really hope justice is served and if he is innocent it is proven. Until then we will be sure to keep you posted as this story develops. These rappers have really got to learn to keep it in their pants! Something has got to give!
What do you guys think though? Is Kodak Black innocent or guilty? Let us know in the comments’ section below!
