Despite their ongoing issues, Princess Love and Ray J have welcomed their second child. As previously reported the couple went through a public spat after Princess accused Ray of abandoning her and their daughter in Las Vegas. They’ve since seemingly reconciled and they’re sharing that their second child, a boy, is here.

Ray shared a Youtube video on Monday, December 30 of Princess and their baby girl Melody.

“I love you princess love!” Ray, 38, captioned the footage. “And my babygirl melody! I don’t ever wanna lose our time together. I’m sorry for everything. 2020 will be somthing [sic] very special.”

In it you see Princess and their 19-month-old daughter celebrating Christmas, taking a trip and then heading to the hospital for delivery.

Prior to announcing their pregnancy, Ray previously told US Weekly that they were trying for another baby.

“I want one more right now,” Ray said. “I’m trying right now. I’m trying to get one in and hopefully we can have another by April, if it happens. They could be friends and protect each other, like my sister and myself.”

Congrats to Princess and Ray J!

No Good Deed?! Texas Church Had Given Murderous Gunman Food Many Times, Was Already Under Surveillance

Texas Church Previously Fed Gunman Who Murdered Two Members

There is another level of sadness that has just been revealed in the West Freeway Church of Christ shooting in White Settlement, Texas.

According to what Pastor Britt Farmer told the Christian Chronicle, the man who killed two people during a worship service, 43-year-old Keith Thomas Kinnunen, was a frequent visitor who the church members had fed many times before.

John Robertson is an elder member of the church and also runs the video recording room. He says that he trained a camera on Kinnunen from the minute he walked into the building.

“This was (a case of) ‘maybe it’s nothing, but maybe it’s worth looking into,’” Robertson said. “We had put him on isolation on one of the cameras back here so we could see that he was behaving.”

When Kinnunen got up for Communion, “We said, ‘We need to make an intervention,’” Robertson said. But it was too late – Kinnunen brandished his weapon and opened fire. Farmer said he never recognized Kinnunen until he was killed.

Angela Holloway, the shooter’s ex-wife, told NBCDFW that Kinnunen had a bad drug problem but never suspected that he would be a killer.

“We knew he was crazy but not like this,” Angela Holloway said. “I don’t wish this on anybody. I feel sorry for the victims. I really do.”

It’s a sick, sad world we live in. Rest in peace to those who lost their lives.

The Most Surprising Celebrity Breakups Of The Decade

For the final day of the decade, it’s important we spend time on what really matters: celebrity breakups.

A lot has happened over the past 10 years. It seems like just yesterday Kim K was on Keeping Up With The Kardashians talking about her boyfriend Reggie Bush and Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey were making headlines for their secretive wedding–but a lot of our favorite celebrity couples met their demise during the last decade.

As 2019 comes to a close and we get ready to bring in the next 10 years, let’s take a look at the most surprising celebrity breakups of the decade:

Kim Kardashian & Reggie Bush (2010)

Thankfully, just like “The Bush and The Tush,” celebrity couple names in general seem to be a thing of the past.

The reality star and her baller boyfriend dated for 3 years and briefly split in 2009 before reuniting, but ended up breaking up for good in 2010. According to reports, Reggie was unable to deal with Kim’s rising level of fame–and the fact that their relationship was plastered all over the internet thanks to storylines on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

In the end, Kim ended up with her match made in heaven and probably the only person in the world just as use to fame as her: Kanye West.  As for Reggie, he seems to have found happiness too…with a woman a lot of people think look just like Kim K.

Hey, there’s nothing wrong with having a type…right?

Kanye West & Amber Rose (2010)

Well, would you look at fate! Kanye and Kim both newly single in 2010 (well, beside that whole Kris Humphries thing. Anyway…)

Amber Rose and Kanye West were the “it” couple for two years before calling things off at the beginning of the decade. At the time, there were reports that Kanye was so engrossed in recording My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy that he didn’t have time to focus on anything else–especially a relationship.

But later, in 2012, Amber called Kim Kardashian a homewrecker, saying she was the reason for their breakup. She claims Kim was cheating on Reggie Bush with Kanye during their relationship, saying that Kim had been texting Kanye and sending him proactive photos.

A whole lot has happened in the nearly 10 years since, but Amber was just on Instagram listening to some Kanye with her current boo and baby daddy A.E., so there doesn’t seem to be any hard feelings…at least anymore.

Heidi Klum & Seal (2012)

2012 started with the split of one couple that seemed to be living in a fairytale, Seal and Keidi Klum. After almost a decade of extravagant parties and vow renewals every single year, the couple shocked fans by announcing their divorce.

At the time of their split, TMZ reported some pretty unfavorable things about Seal, making it seem like his ways were a big reason for their demise.  According to the tabloid, “Seal’s inability to control his anger has become too much for Heidi to take, in no small part because it’s affecting their children.” They also wrote that there was no infidelity from either side, but she reportedly grew tired of his “hard partying ways.”

Seven years after the split, things seem to be all good between these two–in 2017, Seal even appeared on an episode of America’s Got Talent alongside Klum, who was a judge on the series at the time.

Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson & Evelyn Lozada (2012)

Two months was all it took for Evelyn Lozada and Chad Ochocinco’s holy matrimony to go seriously downhill.

After a July wedding and 41 days of marriage, the NFL player and the reality star’s divorce was finalized in September. Johnson was arrested August 11 on a domestic violence charge, after he allegedly head-butt his wife during a heated argument. The situation reportedly escalated after Lozada confronted him about a condom receipt she found in his car.

Evelyn filed for divorce three days later and Johnson pled was sentenced to 12 months probation. Since then, Lozada has said publicly that she forgives her ex-husband and Johnson has apologized.

 Kris Jenner & Caitlyn Jenner (2014)

After a whopping 22 years of marriage, Kris and Caitlyn announced their separation in October of 2013.

“We are living separately and we are much happier this way, but we will always have much love and respect for each other,” they said in a joint statement to E! News. “Even though we are separated, we will always remain best friends and, as always, our family will remain our number one priority.”

In April of 2015, after years of rumors surrounding the subject, Caitlyn came out as transgender in a 20/20 special with Diane Sawyer, revealing that she had been taking hormones since before ever dating Kris. In the years since, there has been a lot of back-and-forth from both sides on the status of their relationship–but lately, it’s not looking too cordial between the two.

Wiz Khalifa & Amber Rose (2014)

Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa started dating in 2011, gave birth to their adorable son Sebastian in February of 2013, and got married a few months later. After a little over a year of holy matrimony, the couple announced their split in September of 2014.

The announcement of their break-up brought on rumors of infidelity from both sides with Hot 97’s Peter Rosenberg claiming that Amber walked in on Wiz cheating with a pair of twin sisters, though Khalifa claimed he has already told his wife things were over weeks prior.

A few years later, Amber admitted in interviews that if the two hadn’t rushed into marriage, they would probably still be together today.

Mariah Carey & Nick Cannon (2014)

After rumors that the couple’s marriage was on the rocks, Nick Cannon’s sources finally announced his split from Mariah Carey at the tail end of 2014, revealing that they were already living apart and that things between them had been bad for a while.

The couple tied the knot in a secret ceremony in 2008 only a few weeks after they began dating, and a couple years later, they had two children together: twins Moroccan and Monroe. Their divorce didn’t get finalized until 2016, when Mariah was preparing to wed her now-ex-fiance James Packer–but fast forward to 2019, and Nick is claiming he’d be up for getting back together with the pop icon.

On an episode of T.I.’s podcast, Cannon revealed that monogamy and marriage simply aren’t for him–but if he was to ever get married again, it would only be to Mariah.

Big Sean & Naya Rivera (2014)

What the hell was in the water back in 2014?

Just like several other couples on the list, Big Sean and Glee star Naya Rivera met their demise in 2014.

In April, the couple called off their engagement, which started a ton of rumors and contraversy surrounding the reason for their split. According to Big Sean’s rep, the rapper was the one to end the couple’s relationship–but there were also reports that he had been cheating on Naya.

Just a few months later, in July, Rivera surprised everyone when she secretly married her longtime friend, actor Ryan Dorsey, whom she got with following her break-up from Sean. Given the speed at which she moved on, fans quickly started to speculate that something wasn’t right here. Reports spread that Naya married Ryan in the same location, on the same date, and wearing the same dress as she was planning to wed Big Sean, though that was never confirmed.

“Boxer Wives” Cast Reveal How They Deal With Groupie Attention (Exclusive)

“Boxer Wives” Airs Exclusively On BOSSIP

The ladies behind iOne’s new reality show “Boxer Wives” said life as a prizefighter’s other half was anything but conventional.

The cast – Meda Montana, Shanequa Barrett, Jylissa Quinones, Cindy O’Farrow and Linda “Lee Lee” Batson – said there’s one thing that they’ve all been through as a boxer’s partner – dealing with other women trying to come in between them and their partners.

“To be the girlfriend, and the youngest (cast member) I think I’m learning to be more mature now,” Jylissa, who was in a relationship with fighter Joel Castillo, said in an exclusive interview earlier this month in NYC.

“But if you ask me,” Jylissa added, “if it’s not liquor, it’s fighting. It’s reality. I wasn’t like, ‘Please can you not do that?’ It was like ‘No, you’re not gonna do that – we’re not gonna have that.”

“Boxer Wives” chronicles the lives of women who are in relationships with prizefighters. All of the ladies admitted that the path to love they’d chosen wasn’t easy and that there are always other women waiting in the wings.

“You have to have tough skin,” according to Shanequa, who went to marriage counseling on the show with her husband Monte “Two Gunz” Barrett after he admitted she was the only woman that he’d been consistently faithful to.

Meda said during the early days of her relationship with her now ex-husband Zab Judah she had an unorthodox way of dealing with unwanted attention from females.

“I would say that the 20-year-old me, I was just ruthless,” Montana said. “That’s probably why me and Zab had so much chemistry – I was just beating everybody up!”

Nowadays Meda said she doesn’t jump to conclusions unless she had hard evidence, and became a detective of sorts when other women tried to contact her.

“I try not to accuse until I have actual facts,” Meda said. “So Im like CIA. Zab has gone out of the country and I’ve rung his hotel room…”He’ll be like, ‘How’d you find me?’ And I’m like, ‘this is what I do.’”
