Da Rumor Mill
By Tenisha Renee Miller
    What up doe! It’s freezing cold in da D, but it’s hot and nasty on da streets.
    When it’s comes to nasty, rumor has it that Omarion’s baby mama, Apryl Jones, is straight up ratchet for allegedly gettin’ knocked up by O’s B2K bandmate, Lil Fizz. The two are reportedly dating on the down low, but word has it that Lil Fizz got sloppy over the holidays. He reportedly spent it with Apryl and her family. Omarion reportedly said he’s cool with it, during an interview. The truth will be told when B2K reunites and goes out on tour. Let’s just hope that Omarion’s baby doesn’t start calling Lil Fizz daddy or a fight will break out on stage.
    Speaking of fighting, R “pedophile” Kelly is reportedly striking back at his accusers, after Lifetime aired the documentary “Surviving R Kelly”. A sex tape of one of his victims was allegedly leaked on Facebook. The tape is his attempt to present the women as skanks and to boost his image. A new website is reportedly being launched as well. Facebook has reportedly removed the post. “R” just may be givin’ prosecutors additional evidence to lock his butt up. Who knows? Maybe his cellmate will be Bill Cosby. In the meantime, recording artist Sparkle, who identified her 14-year-old niece as one of the victims in R Kelly’s sex tape, is throwing a few blows of her own. She put the brother on blast back then, put him on blast in the documentary and is putting him on blast in her new single. She may have lost her career back then for speaking out, but her new single, “We Are Ready”, is already being labeled as a women’s empowerment anthem. "They have tried to silence from us, strip away the power from us," Sparkle sings. "Said that we were weak long enough, but time is up/ We ain't weak/ We have a voice and its loud, no we ain't just figure it out/ When we come together we win we overcome battles, we fall, we'll do it again/ And it's never been an easy win, but we are ready."
  Tommie Lee, of Love and Hip Hop Atlanta, should be ready to straighten up and stay out of jail. Now, the ratchet chick is facing over 50 years in child for beating down her daughter at school. She was indicted on seven charges for child abuse, after she allegedly assaulted her teenage daughter at school. First she used her purse strap to strike the girl’s hands, then she allegedly slapped her face, dragged her by her hair into the hallway, and then slammed her into a metal locker. Tommie was taken to jail but released three hours later, after posting a $27,000 bond. The court ordered her to stay away from her daughter but she reportedly violated the restraining order and ended up back in jail for a week with no bond. She’s reportedly been in and out of jail about 30 times. This last incident may have her in there for life. Let’s hope she doesn’t end up becoming Big Betty’s girlfriend. 
  And, on that note, we’re bustin’ out. Peace out!
