Cardi B Files to Divorce Offset

Cardi B has filed paperwork in Georgia's Fulton County Superior Court to divorce her husband, Migos rapper Offset.

Cardi B is listed as the plaintiff and Offset is listed as the defendant.

"There's also this ... according to the court docs, obtained by TMZ, Cardi is seeking primary physical custody as well as legal custody of their 2-year-old daughter, Kulture. She also wants Offset to pay child support -- unclear how much though at this point. No word on spousal support either, for now at least." Source: Tmz

I hope they can work something out for their baby.....

Master P Said The ATM Is Out Of Order

Here is what Master P said on IG about ungrateful people and we all have them in every family.

"They always say what do you get the man that has everything. What about love, a card, or even just thank you. If any family members have a receipt of that to me, I’ll cut the ATM back on. It’s been over 30 years I’m tired of supporting people’s addictions and bad habits. Who would y’all be mad at if I was dead, because it seems like none of y’all want to work. I’m no longer enabling lazy ungrateful people. Please go get a job and a career. I’m not God, I’m only human. The only difference is I decided to do the right thing and chase my dreams and goals. When I made I was too generous to my family and friends that’s the problem. I love y’all, but enough is enough. In my 50 cent voice “I ain’t doing it no more mane” P.S this how you know it’s hate, I ain’t the only millionaire in this family just for the record. When you do the right thing God will keep blessing you. Envy and jealousy gets you no where #HappySunday I don’t want to hear “keep this off the internet.” I’m just saying what a lot of successful people or even just people with jobs that are working want to say to their family. The truth hurts it’s uncomfortable, but it’s the only way we can get back to the love."

Get on your grind and chase your dreams #getoffthesidelines and get in the game.

"A man named Derek Harris has been freed after almost ten years in jail for selling less than $30 worth of marijuana. Harris was reportedly given a life sentence, which was reduced. He served his time at the Louisiana State Penitentiary and was recently released early, according to the Promise of Justice Initiative, which is a New Orleans-based nonprofit."

"Harris was a military veteran who was arrested in 2008 in Louisiana for selling a cop .69 grams of weed. The state’s Supreme Court noted that Harris was convicted and sentenced to 15 years in prison, but his sentence was changed in 2012 to life under the Habitual Offender Law."

"The executive director of the non-profit—Mercedes Montagnes, said,"  “This delayed justice was a terrifying ordeal for Derek and his family. As COVID-19 rates continue to rise in DOC facilities, every day spent in Angola was a tremendous risk for Derek's health and safety." Source: Vlad TV

This is a crazy story out of Louisiana. Thinking about what Master P said, and the killing of a black man over the weekend in that state...Y'all be careful down in the BOOT...

Here is what Nick Cannon said:

"I created a billion-dollar brand that expanded across a multitiered empire that is still Viacom’s biggest digital brand, touring business, talent discovery and incubation system and successful restaurant franchise. Based on trust and empty promises, my ownership was swindled away from me. For Viacom to be so deceptive is no surprise; they have been mistreating and robbing our community for years, underpaying talent on their biggest brands like Love & Hip Hop, all of BET programming and of course, Wild ‘N Out." 

Why Viacom not paying these people the right amount of money?---->Ownership, y'all gone listen to Dame Dash one day. Now y'all go support Dame Dash Studios.

Nick also said:

"If I have furthered the hate speech, I wholeheartedly apologize. But now I am the one making demands. I demand full ownership of my billion dollar ‘Wild ‘N Out’ brand that I created, and they will continue to misuse and destroy without my leadership! I demand that the hate and back door bullying cease and while we are at it, now that the truth is out, I demand the Apology!”

We need Wild 'N Out give that back Viacom....Let's go Nick.

Tell y'all again, own your shit.....

Tesla stock drop today by 40 dollars and this is why.

Documents posted Wednesday say the agency has received 11 complaints about the screens over the past 13 months in vehicles that have been in use from 3.9 years to 6.3 years.

If the screens fail, the cars will lose the rear camera display, causing reduced visibility. No crashes or injuries have been reported.

This is not the only reason Tesla drop today it's also concerns over the coronavirus as the Dow drops more than 700 points today, and also over J.D Power survey and it's not good.

Stock Market: Coca-Cola Stock Talk

We are moving towards making blog posts about business, ownership and stocks; we'll still talk about entertainment etc here and there.

Let's talk about Coca-Cola stock one of the best on the market.

Did you know Coca-Cola stock pay a dividend and it's double the average stock on the market. Not only that but Coca-Cola own over 500 brands and operates in 200 countries, but it claims to have only 20% of the market in developed countries and 10% of the market in undeveloped countries.

Warren Buffett is well-known for his affection for the company; Berkshire Hathaway is Coca-Cola's largest shareholder with 400 million shares, and Buffett himself drinks five Cokes a day.

I'm setting here drinking my coke thinking that you need to get in this game and build your wealth up and yes I own Coca-Cola Stock.

Next month when AMC reopen they will require a face mask. " AMC CEO Adam Aron unveiled the company's reopening plan for its U.S. theaters, which includes a slew of enhanced sanitary and social distancing measures developed in conjunction with numerous experts." Source: Hollywoodreporter.com

AMC plans on opening 450 or so of its U.S. theaters July 15, while all 600 should be open by July 24. 

I'm liking it because I got AMC stock then again it's dangerous, so be careful out here and wear your mask everywhere you go....

AMC's statement that was reless Friday: 

At AMC, we have been consulting with top scientists and health experts to create a broad, sweeping, far-reaching health and safety effort to make AMC Theatres safe for our guests and associates when our theatres reopen in July. Among many elements of that comprehensive plan was a requirement for our associates all to wear masks nationwide, as well as a requirement for our guests all to wear masks in the many parts of the country that will require it. In those areas of the country where masks will not be required, we nonetheless planned to strongly encourage mask usage by guests, and fully expected that the vast majority would do so. That policy on guest mask usage, which is directly comparable with our major competitors and many other highly regarded retailers, was announced yesterday afternoon.

This announcement prompted an intense and immediate outcry from our customers, and it is clear from this response that we did not go far enough on the usage of masks. At AMC Theatres, we think it is absolutely crucial that we listen to our guests. Accordingly, and with the full support of our scientific advisors, we are reversing course and are changing our guest mask policy. As we reopen theaters, we now will require that all AMC guests nationwide wear masks as they enter and enjoy movies at our theaters. The speed with which AMC moved to revise our mask policies is a reflection of our commitment to the safety and health of our guests.

We will constantly monitor the scientific community’s latest thinking as to the efficacy of mask usage. We also will be looking at the varying health conditions in specific localities around our theaters all across the country. This will help us to determine what our mask policy will be as we go forward, as well as to make any other needed changes to this policy.

Guests coming to our theaters may bring their own masks of course, but for those who do not have one, masks will be available at our theater box offices at a nominal $1.00 price. Those who are unwilling to wear a mask will not be admitted or allowed to stay.

We also want to take this opportunity to express our great appreciation to our many guests who took the time to communicate their views. We will continue to listen and continue to monitor the changing nature of the coronavirus, adapting and adjusting our policies accordingly.

'Live PD' and 'Cops' have been cancel over George Floyd's death.

'Cops' been on air for 33 years when Paramount Network postponed the 33rd Season which was scheduled for Monday.

The A&E Network made the decision not to air 'Live PD' new episodes this weekend.

Coming from where I'm from this is nothing new with police, when they pull up to the hood anything can happen on both ends. I just hate that some police got to have that thug attitude when they see young black people ages between 14 to 50 something. We only know what we saw growning up, into we think outside the box.
