We previously reported that there were rumors that Naya’s ex-husband, actor Ryan Dorsey, would be moving in with Naya’s sister, Nickayla Rivera.

We haven’t heard much from Tekashi 6ix9ine lately after he released his album TattleTales. The rapper turned up his trolling antics in the hopes of hyping the project to increase album sales, but according to reports, 6ix9ine didn’t pull the numbers that the rapper had hoped. His trolling was highly criticized as he argued with his fellow artists, including Lil Durk and a number of others after he made an appearance in Chicago and showed up in L.A. to visit Nipsey Hussle’s mural. Charlamagne commented on 6ix9ine’s controversial moment at Nipsey’s memorial and claimed that it was “evil” to show his face there.
Travis Scott is literally everywhere. Following the release of Astroworld, he became this global superstar whose brand was untouchable.

According to PageSix, the rapper and his label are being sued by a video game company that claims they ripped off their design.
KontrolFreek filed a lawsuit against Travis Scott and Cactus Jack alleging that “reproduced KontrolFreek’s copyright-protected” photos of their joysticks. The company continues to claim that the photos were “modified” to superimpose “the Cactus Jack logo/design over the top of the KontrolFreek thumbstick” for the Fortnite concert.

San Francisco and the entire state of Florida are bringing back live music, but in very different ways.
Florida has dropped all COVID-19 restrictions on businesses, per an executive order from Gov. Ron DeSantis. Moving forward, the state can reopen and operate at full capacity — that means indoor and outdoor venues, bars, and clubs are all fair game.
“Every business has the right to operate,” DeSantis said. “Some of the locals can do reasonable regulations. But you can’t just say no.”
