    UPDATE: Damn. Rip Tommy. It has now been confirmed that Actor Thomas Mikal Ford has passed away at the age of 52.
    If you watched the hilarious sitcom Martin in the late 90's you remember Tommy. Actor Thomas Mikal Ford played one of Martin's three best friends. He would often portray himself as a ladies' man and would flirt with Pam and other women on the show. His mysterious employment status was a running gag on the show and still is to this day.
    Today it's being reported that Tommy is currently fighting for his life in Atlanta GA after suffering an Aneurysm. People on social media already killed the man off by posting RIP. I haven't read anything confirming his death so let's continue to pray for Tommy.

    Another legend has passed away. Last month it was Prince, this month it's Muhammad Ali.
    Muhammad Ali born, Cassius Marcellus Clay, Jr., died on Friday June 3rd at a Phoenix hospital. He was hospitalized a few days ago due to respiratory complications. When I saw other media outlets report that he was on life support, I knew the end was near. He was 74.
    A family spokesman told NBC News " After a 32-year battle with Parkinson's disease, Muhammad Ali has passed away at the age of 74. The three-time World Heavyweight Champion boxer died this evening,"- Bob Gunnell.
    One of my favorite Ali quotes:
“Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee. The hands can't hit what the eyes can't see.”
    Rip to The Greatest of All Time. Legends never die!

    Damnnnnnn!!! I knew once he hit the show dirt would be pulled up, however I didn't see anything like this coming out!! A child molester?..That's crazy!! Get into the story below!
The NorthJersey reports:
    Jury selection began Wednesday in Hackensack for the trial of a hip-hop reality TV star accused of molesting an underage girl in Lodi two years ago.
    Mandeecees Harris, a 34-year-old actor on the VH1 reality show “Love and Hip-Hop,” is charged with performing various sexual acts with a 15-year-old girl and inappropriately touching her at his former home in Lodi.
    Bergen County prosecutors allege that Harris asked for and received oral sex from the girl and fondled her on various occasions between September 2009 and April 2010. He was arrested later that year and charged with aggravated sexual assault, criminal sexual contact and child endangerment. If convicted, he faces up to 20 years in prison.
    Harris remains free without bail. He was not present in state Superior Court in Hackensack during jury selection Wednesday. Court officials expect to have a full panel of jurors by Thursday, and attorneys are scheduled to make opening remarks on Jan. 29.
    “Love and Hip Hop” debuted in 2011, with the third season premiering this week. The show’s website on VH1 describes Harris as “a well-known name throughout New York City.”
    “Through the years he has been concentrating on his real estate endeavors, but now is focused on building an empire in the music industry,” reads his biography.
    Harris owns Beat Factory studio in The Bronx and manages several New York City-based rappers, according to the biography.
    The 15-year old victim is the daughter of his oldest son’s mother.
    SMDH!!! I wonder how this will play out.

Usher Raymond's Ex-Wife Tameka Raymond Loses Custody Battle

Usher Raymond’s Ex-Wife Tameka Raymond Loses Custody Battle

    DAMNNNNNNNNN!!! I'm shocked! She just lost her son to a freak accident and now this!! Sista hold ya head, and lord I pray this lady doesn't flip and bring harm to anyone or her self. Ish is REAL!!
    According to TMZ
    Usher's ex-wife Tameka Raymond just lost in the former couple's bitter custody battle -- TMZ has learned, a judge has awarded Usher primary custody of their two sons.
    It's a shocking development -- considering both sides were trying to strip each other of custody. Tameka felt the singer was an absentee father who was too absorbed in his career to be a good dad. She also accused him of using drugs in front of the kids.
    Usher argued Tameka was inattentive and irresponsible.
    The ruling marks the end of an emotional custody trial -- involving wild accusations and name-calling ... Usher even broke down at one point on the witness stand.
    But today, we're told a judge sided with the singer -- awarding Usher primary custody of the ex-couple's two sons, which means the children will be spending the majority of the time with their father.
    Tameka still retains some custodial rights -- but the extent to which Tameka will be able to see her kids is unclear.
    *Long sigh and sips tea*

    *Sigh* I don't like posting stories like this on A2C. But it is apart of life. When I first saw the story yesterday on TMZ stating the 11-year-old boy had been injured very badly I felt so sad, knowing it wouldn't end well. TMZ has now reported that Kyle Glover has been declared brain dead by doctors following the accident yesterday when he was struck by a jet ski.
    According to sources, Kyle Glover (son of Usher's estranged wife Tameka Foster) has not experienced any brain activity since he was admitted to the hospital. We're told there has been no decision yet as to whether or not to take him off life support.
    It's being reported that Usher arrived at the hospital last night and Tameka has not left the hospital since she got there. Kyle was struck in the head by passing jet ski while riding on an inner tube on Lake Lanier in Atlanta, GA.
    Prayers to the family during this trying time. May God cover and give Tameka lots of strength.
