With his new album ‘Love In The Future‘ hitting sonic shores in the coming months, John Legend has embarked on a venture that will see him branch outside of music…in partnership with Time Warner‘s ‘HBO‘.
Joining forces with ‘24′ producer Tony Krantz, Legend has signed on to craft the brand new TV series ‘Down Lo’, set in Miami’s South Beach – ‘exploring the intersection of three worlds — the party town’s popular music scene and sports and fashion circles. It deals with fame and secrets, with the stories told from multiple points of view’.
One of these view points- Vulture explains- will come courtesy of a closeted gay Rapper battling with his sexuality, a theme previously tackled on The CW‘s short lived ‘The LA Complex‘.
While its launch date is yet to be announced, we do know the series will be produced by John’s ‘Get Lifted’ film company, which has enlisted ‘How To Make It In America‘s Seth Zvi Rosenfeld to serve as one of its writers.
‘Party Up’ performer DMX was not in a festive mood after viewing his highly anticipated episode of ‘Iyanla: Fix My Life’ last week on Oprah Winfrey‘s network OWN.
In fact, the former hit rapper was so displeased that he is threatening legal action against Winfrey and co., claiming he was deliberately shown in a negative light. Yes, X (as he is affectionately known) has had his fair share of run-ins with the law and a number of drug rehabilitation centers over the past decade. But, according to sources, the rapper was due to chat with Vanzant about his addiction to sex, not drugs (as the episode displays).
He reportedly told TMZ:
“Iyanla set the whole thing up to make me look bad for ratings.” “That lady is toxic … My last words to her were that she can suck my d**k and she still can.”

Porsha Stewart has shared more details on her separation from former NFL husband Kordell this week, dishing on the divorce during an interview on Andy Cohen‘s ‘Watch What Happens Live‘.
On learning of Kordell’s decision to split, she revealed:
“When I found out about the divorce, it was absolutely a surprise. I was laying in the bed and I Tweeted ‘today is the first day of the rest of your life’. I put the phone down and took a little nap and I looked back at my phone and my sister was calling me over and over. She said ‘have you heard’ and I’m like ‘hear what?’.” I went back on Twitter and says the first thing she saw was “Kordell is divorcing Porsha”. Porsha admits she thought it was a crazy joke. Can you imagine finding that out with your husband just hanging out in the other room?”
Addressing the matter hours after her stint on the ‘Real Housewives Of Atlanta’s 5th season came to an end, she went on to share that she and Stewart are still living together, no doubt shocking fans who also learned:
““Long story short, I was very disappointed and let down. When I got married, I meant it for life. I always said I’d never get a divorce unless he cheated on me or something like that.”
