Kelis Accuses Ex-Husband Nas of Abuse: I Had Bruises All Over My Body

It has been nine years since singer Kelis filed for divorce from hip hop artist Nas after five years of marriage.

Now, Kelis is finally opening up — and revealing allegations that Nas abused her when they were together. It's heartbreaking.

You can listen to this shocking interview below.

First, Kelis discusses a much more comfortable subject, and blames their breakup on Nas cheating on her.

"That was the straw that broke the camel’s back."

But she says that it was just part of the equation.

"I didn’t file for divorce because he cheated."

And that it was something of which she was aware for a long time.

"He had been cheating for two years, and I knew that."

This is when she first hints more directly at the abuse allegations.

"It was because, on top of all the other stuff, and then you’re gonna cheat? It was too much."

The interviewer then asks if Kelis' vague references are to Nas possibly having hit her during their marriage.

"I’ve waited nine years to say anything. I’ve never talked about this man. Ever … Did he hit me? Mmhmm. Did I hit him back? Mmhmm."

While many abusive relationships are one way, some do fight back. Kelis makes it clear that she only ever fought back, and never initiated the alleged violence.

"I’m not afraid to throw a punch, but I wouldn’t have started it. I’ll participate in ending it, but I wouldn’t have started it."

This is an upsetting subject, and one can certainly understand why it took her nine years to speak of it.

But now that she's opened that door, she has more to say.

Apparently, it was photos of Rihanna's bruised and battered face from 2009 that really resonated her during the tail end of her marriage to Nas.

"I remember so clearly, when the pictures came out with that whole thing that happened with her and Chris Brown, and the only way I can describe it was like Double Dutch."

She was wondering if it was her time to come forward and speak to the public about her husband.

"‘Do I jump in? Do I say it?’ Cause I had bruises all over my body at that time."

That is heartbreaking.

"I remember being in Atlanta, sitting in the kitchen, and I was like, ‘Do I?’"

But, like countless people who are enduring abuse from their partners, she was too afraid to take that step.

"And I wasn’t ready to walk. I just wasn’t. And so I didn’t say it."

Kelis speaks more about Rihanna.

"Seeing her, the way she looked, and then looking at myself, I was embarrassed."

And she says that Nas wondered if she was going to come forward.

"He knew it. He looked at me like, ‘Are you gonna do it?’"

Though Kelis says that the abuse was one factor among many and that the cheating was the last straw … the timing looks interesting.

Kelis filed for divorce in April of 2009.

That was just two months after those horrifying photos of Rihanna surfaced.

It sounds clear that Rihanna's story and the parallels to the nightmare that Kelis was living were weighing on her mind.

Kelis describes Nas' temperament.

"He was angry, and he was dark, and he’s always been that way."

She has reason to believe that.

Carmen Bryan, the mother of Nas' first child, wrote in her 2007 memoir, titled It's No Secret, that Nas had been physically abusive towards her.

There are some men who only become abusive at certain stages in their lives — when their career suddenly goes wrong, or when they develop a new substance abuse problem.

But in most cases, abusers have a history of different victims.

It sounds like Nas falls into that category.

It will be interesting to hear how Nas chooses to respond to these newly revealed allegations.

Kelis has apparently taken steps to be overly kind to Nas since their divorce. She even mentions in the interview that she's invited him over for Thanksgiving.

Some would say that her empathy is misplaced and would be better spent on someone who deserves it.

But it's Kelis' life and her story. Her response to her personal trauma is her own.

Kristen Doute Accuses Faith Stowers of Drugging and Robbing Strangers

If you’ve been watching Vanderpump Rules this season, you know there’s been no shortage of drama for our favorite bunch of West Hollywood hooligans.

But believe it or not, the wildest storyline of the year might be playing out right now on Twitter.

You may remember Faith Stowers from the early-season storyline in which Jax Taylor cheated on Brittany Cartwright.

According to Faith’s version of events, she and Jax slept together in the home of the elderly shut-in she was caring for at the time.

It was briefly rumored that Faith was pregnant with Jax’s baby, but Stowers later revealed that she only pretended to be knocked up in hopes of getting more screentime on Vanderpump.

Needless to say, Faith’s moral compass is a little off-kilter.

But hey, it’s not like she’s out drugging random and robbing them once they’re unconscious, right?!

Kristen Doute Tweet

Just kidding, according to Vanderpump‘s Kristen Doute, that’s exactly what Stowers is doing.

Earlier today, Doute posted the above tweet, in which she appears to suggest that Stowers is the woman that LA police are seeking in connection with a number of robberies.

“Hey tweeties, doesn’t this ex #pumprules thief look familiar?” Doute tweeted.

“Someone put her on mtv & gave her a platform for press. I didn’t wanna go there but I’m going there.”

Doute is referring to the fact that Stowers currently appears on the MTV series Ex on the Beach.

According to police, the suspect used an “unknown substance” to “poison or drug” several male victims before stealing their valuables while they were unconscious.

“Our victim had quite a few watches that he was wearing, and that’s what the suspect was targeting,” an LAPD spokesperson said of one of the crimes.

While Doute stopped just short of saying the woman in the security cam footage is definitely Stowers, she strongly implied that that’s the case, even claiming that the jacket Stowers is wearing was stolen from James Kennedy’s roommate, Logan Noh.

Obviously, it’s a serious allegation, but Stowers has yet to respond publicly.

However, there might be a legal reason for her silence.

You see, Doute isn’t the only one who’s accused Stowers of being a thief.

In a podcast interview that aired today, Stowers revealed that she’s suing Stassi Schroeder due to Stassi allegedly claiming that Faith stole Jax’s car.

Like we said, the insanity definitely doesn’t end when the cameras stop rolling with this crew.

Watch Vanderpump Rules online to get caught up in time for Monday’s season finale.

Tommy Lee Accuses Own Son of Assaulting Him

Tommy Lee says his heart is broken.

By a woman breaking up with him?

No, by his very own son physically assaulting him, according to the veteran musician.

Multiple outlets have confirmed that the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department responded on Monday to an incident at Lee’s home in Calabasas, California.

It’s the nature of this incident, and/or what prompted this incident, that is currently up for debate

Lee alleges that 21-year old son Brandon, whose mother is Pamela Anderson, simply attacked him while the rocker was in bed with his girlfriend.

Along these lines, Lee Tweeted a photo (below) of his bloody lip last night, prior to deleting both the picture and the affiliated caption.

But this is the Internet, where nothing can ever truly be deleted, and we can report that the caption read as follows:

My heart is broken. You can give your kids everything they could ever want in their entire lives and they can still turn against you. Good job Brandon. Great son!

lee lip

No arrest has been made, but authorities have stated that Brandon is a person of interest in their ongoing investigation.

TMZ, meanwhile, writes that Brandon has been living part-time with his father in order to help Tommy Lee overcome a dependence on alcohol.

Insiders tell the typically-reliable celebrity gossip site that Brandon and his dad got into an intense argument Monday evening due to Lee attacking Anderson for discussing their volatile relationship in an interview with Piers Morgan.

Wrote Lee in response to this sit-down:

“@piersmorgan ur interviews w/ Donald Trump & my ex-wife are pathetic! Think she’d find something new to discuss instead of rehashing old shit but I guess she has nothing else going on & needs attention.”

Lee then signed this Tweet as follows:

“The abuser” (who she texts everyday & asks for me back).”

tommy tweet

These same TMZ sources claim Tommy was drunk when he lunged at Brandon (who was sober) and that the 21-year old punched his dad in self-defense.

As you might expect, however, Lee denies this allegation.

“My fiance and I were in bed when my son busted into the room and assaulted me,” he Tweeted in response, adding:

“I asked him to leave the house and he knocked me unconscious. He ran away from the police. THAT’S the truth.”

He also called out TMZ for “reporting bullshit” in this case.

Lee and Anderson starred in a very famous sex tape together, but their relationship has since its MANY shares of ups and downs.

They are also parents to 20-year-old Dylan Jagger.

Amber Portwood Accuses Matt Baier of Abuse on Marriage Boot Camp!

In just a few short weeks, we will be receiving such a delightful, exciting gift …

And that gift is the premiere episode of the new season of Marriage Boot Camp!

This season, we're most excited to see Amber Portwood work through her issues with Matt Baier, because even though their relationship obviously didn't work out, there's still a lot we'd like to know about their breakup.

We're also dying to see if Andrew Glennon, her new boyfriend/baby daddy and a crew member for Marriage Boot Camp, makes any sort of cameo.

Plus, if you know Amber, then you know that she's completely incapable of not bringing the drama, right?

And thanks to this special little sneak peek of what has to be some of her most explosive scenes, we know that she really, really brought it.

The clip begins with sirens and flashing text that reads "Amber Alert," which is in kind of poor taste, considering what Amber Alerts actually are, but we get it.

Next, we see her hitting a punching bag with a baseball bat, then she yells "F-ck you, bitch!" at someone — it looks like her mother.

"Do I look f-cking high?!" she screams at someone else.

Later, Amber tells Brandi Glanville to "shut the f-ck up before I flip this f-cking table against your goddamn head," and while we don't know the context, it does seem to be a bit of an overreaction.

In another scene, this one with Matt, she tells him that he's a "piece of sh-t," to which he responds with an incredulous "really?"

"Why do you think I'm so angry?" she asks. "Because you hit me!"

Whoa.

So there's basically two things this could mean.

One, they did one of those therapeutic exercises that they do on the show, he accidentally hit her during it, and thanks to her clear anger issues during this time, it set her off.

Two, he was physically abusive to her during their relationship.

Unfortunately, there is some evidence to that second option — for example, last summer, right around the time she would have been filming this, she admitted in an Instagram rant that she'd been the victim of domestic violence.

"I've been through domestic violence," she said then. "I was the one on the other f-cking end with the domestic violence — it went both ways."

"However," she added, "I never opened my motherf-cking mouth about anybody ever f-cking hitting me! Anybody! Because that's what a real f-cking woman does!"

"That's what a real woman does. I can f-cking take that!"

Obviously that's not true, and it's really truly awful to state that "real women" don't seek help if they're being abused.

But Simon Saran, Farrah Abraham's sometimes boyfriend, claimed that this was true — he even specified that "Matt has punched her on several occasions."

At the very least, we know that Amber is prone to violent relationships, because we saw her beat Gary Shirley more than once in the early seasons of Teen Mom.

There were also rumors that Amber was abusive to Matt, complete with a photo of Matt's injuries that he claimed were from a separate incident altogether.

It's all very, very suspicious, isn't it?

Check out Amber in action in the video below:

Kate Upton Accuses Guess Co-Founder Paul Marciano of Sexual Misconduct

Kate Upton has accused the man behind fashion brand Guess of treating women in an inappropriate manner.

On Wednesday morning, the world famous model took to Twitter in order to accuse chief creative officer and former co-CEO Paul Marciano of sexual harassment.

Marciano has been a major influence at Guess for years and remains a prominent player in its everyday operations.

Much to the chagrin of Upton, as she writes below:

“It’s disappointing that such an iconic women’s brand @GUESS is still empowering Paul Marciano as their creative director.”

The newlywed ended the tweet with a potentially telling hashtag, implying that she was a victim of Marciano’s unacceptable behavior by Tweeting:

#metoo.

This hashtag, of course, is commonly used these days by women who have been the victims of sexual harassment or misconduct.

While it’s often employed by females in the entertainment industry (after acres Alyssa Milano made it popular once again several months ago), many women around social media in general have also joined the movement.

The impressive viral movement aims to shed light on years and years of abuse, intimidation, harassment and assault that have been covered up by both Hollywood and the media.

Back to Upton, however:

Minutes after sending her initial message, Upton shared the same Tweet on Instagram, along with the caption:

“He shouldn’t be allowed to use his power in the industry to sexually and emotionally harass women #metoo.”

Justin Verlander, the Houston Astros starting pitcher who Upton married in November, also shared his wife’s allegation on Twitter.

ku tweets

Upton is arguably the most famous supermodel in the world.

She became a celebrity spokesmodel for Guess in 2011, following in the footsteps of such major names as the following:

Claudia Schiffer and Cindy Crawford. Most recent faces of Guess include Gigi Hadid, Hailey Baldwin, Camila Cabello and Jennifer Lopez.

Marciano, meanwhile, co-founded the fashion company in 1981 and has served as its executive chairman and chief creative officer since August 2015.

He stepped down that year from his position as the brand’s chief executive officer, but, if anything, has been more involved in a daily basis ever since making this transition.

Guess has yet to respond to Upton’s claims.

And Upton has not provided any further detail regarding what Marciano has done to merit said claims.

We’ll update this story as more news when/if it breaks.

Nicole Eggert Accuses Scott Baio of Sexual Assault

Nicole Eggert has leveled a serious allegation against Scott Baio.

The former Baywatch actress, who appeared for years opposite Baio on the sitcom Charles in Charles, wrote on Twitter yesterday that the actor molested her back when she was a teenager,

Commenting on a Tweet that referred to Baio as a staunch Donald Trump supporter, Eggert penned the following on Saturday afternoon:

“Ask [Scott Baio] what happened in his garage at his house when I was a minor. Creep.”

It obviously doesn’t lend credence to her accusation necessarily, but she had recently linked to Halsey’s viral speech at the Women’s March from last weekend and also Tweeted:

“Always stand in ur truth it gives u strength.”

In a series of Tweets, she went on to detail how Baio digitally penetrated her, starting at the age of 14.

In a subsequent response to Twitter followers, Eggert said she was a “molested child” who “covered up” the alleged abuse for years, writing that she was “14, 15, 16 and 17” when these incidents occurred.

eggert tweet

How did Baio fight back?

Initially by referring to Eggert’s claims as “100% lies” and then by sharing a 16-minute video on Facebook.

“I remember her calling me and asking me to come over and coming in my house one time, and seducing me,” Baio says into the camera at one point in this video, adding:

“[For] any normal heterosexual, red-blooded American guy, the outcome would have been the same.”

Baio says this intercourse was consensual and that Eggert was of legal age at the time.

baio

He also played an audio recording of an interview Eggert gave to TheDirty.com, in which she described losing her virginity to Baio “way after” “Charles in Charge” was done.

“It was years later,” Eggert can be heard saying.

Eggert previous accused Baio of sexually abusing her as a minor in 2012.

“I kept my mouth shut, because usually when false claims in the past have been made about me they just go away,” Baio said late Saturday.

“But for some reason she will not let this one go away.”

He proceeds to basically challenge Eggert to “go to the police” if she really has a case, as opposed to airing dirty (in his mind, bitter) laundry on social media.

Baio, who has made headlines of late for his support of President Trump, said the Eggert’s accusations undermine real victims with “legitimate claims.”

In his view:

“The problem with almost all he said-she said cases is they’re he said-she said. Now, go prove it or disprove it,” he says toward the end of his reply.

“The real problem with this is people with legitimate claims aren’t taken seriously – and that’s too bad.”

Eggerts and Baio costarred on the aforementioned sitcom from 1984 to 1990, with Baio playing college student Charles, who looked after a group of children including Eggert’s character, Jamie.
