Aretha Franklin Pops Back With $10 Million LAWSUIT Over Patti Labelle FIGHT Story + Swizz Beatz ACCEPTED To Harvard’s Business School!

 photo aretha.jpg

Aretha Franklin is “fighting” back with a $10 million lawsuit against a website that started the rumor that she and Patti Labelle got into a physical altercation. Plus, Swizz Beatz is headed to Harvard! Deets inside….

After Aretha Franklin confirmed there was NO fight between herself and Grammy Award winning singer Patti Labelle, the Queen of Soul is slapping the satire website, who started the foolish rumor, with a $10 million lawsuit!

Defamation of character carries one hefty fine and the satire site that started that big bruhaha yesterday may soon have to cough up some serious cash.

Yesterday, we told you Aretha released a statement denying reports that she and Patti Labelle were involved in a physical altercation at an unnamed R&B/Soul event in Atlanta on March 20th.

The rumor was likely started after what some interpreted as Aretha throwing shade at Ms. Patti when she walked past her at the “Women of Soul” concert at the White House as she made her way to the stage (seen below).

But Aretha says she has nothing but LOVE and R-E-S-P-E-C-T for Patti.

NOW… she’s “fighting back” (pun intended) against the site and it’s CEO, Kato Leonard, for dragging her name through the mud.

She said:

“The stories were not presented as satire or humor,” says Franklin. “It was presented as a serious news story intended to depict me in a slanderous and derogatory way—defamation of character.”

The Queen is NOT to be messed with!

And in other news…

Producer and art enthusiast Swizz Beatz has announced he was accepted into the President Management Program at the Harvard Business School!

From a street kid living in the Bronx to attending an Ivy League school, he shared an email sent to him of his acceptance letter (above) with the caption, “This might be one of the happiest days of my life. From the BX to Harvard #hardwork #dedication #levels #discipline #BX #makehistory #owner #Boss #humbled #formykids”

This Harvard Program is similar to the same program supermodel Tyra Banks attended and graduated from, which inspired her to write her very first novel Modelland.

Tyra admitted being a businesswoman, writing a book and attending classes at Harvard caused her to lose her hair and put her under a lot of stress...but says the pay off was well worth it!

Hope Swizz is ready…Congrats!

NOT AGAIN!: Columbus Short Allegedly THREATENS WIFE With MURDER/SUICIDE, Gets KICKED OUT Of Home, Wife Files For Divorce For THIRD Time

 photo columbusshortwife.jpg

Columbus Short needs help. He clearly has an issue with putting his hands on others (allegedly). His wife has just filed a restraining order against him and filed for divorce for the third time after she claims he pinned her down, holding a knife to her throat.

 

Read the shocking details inside…

Just when you thought all is well with “Scandal” star Columbus Short after seeing him, his wife and daughter all smiles on a family outing…THIS happens.

As he’s currently being investigated by the LAPD for going straight HUCK on a dude in a bar fight last month, actor Columbus Short now has a restraining order filed against him after he allegedly pulled a knife out and held it to his wife’s throat!

Tanee McCall-Short has kicked her husband out of their house and filed for divorce (for the THIRD time) after he allegedly attacked her in their Chatsworth home on April 7th. Tanee claims Columbus came home drunk with a wine bottle in his hand, acting as if he was going to hit her with it.

Instead, he doused her with the wine, grabbed a knife, pinned her down while choking her as he demanded they play a game called “Truth or Truth.”

Chile....

TMZ reports Columbus had suspicions that Tanee was cheating on him and started naming men who he believed she had an affair with, all as he held a knife to her throat. He allegedly told her if she lied to him he would commit a murder/suicide.

After fighting him off, Tanee was able to escape which resulted in Columbus slashing one of her tires on her vehicle. She called police and filed a restraining order against him and he now has to move out of their home. It’s reported the cops were at their household today to make sure he moved out peacefully.

Tanee has now filed for divorce for the third time yesterday, citing irreconcilable differences, seeking sole custody of their 2-year-old daughter, Ayala. You’ll recall the actor and his wife were in the process of filming their own short film together. Guess that won’t happen now…

Columbus has a colorful rap sheet including hurting his wife in front of their kids this past February, had a police report filed on him 2 weeks later for allegedly pushing his wife during an argument, and back in 2010 he was prosecuted for beating up a dude on the basketball court. Think she'll finally leave for good this time?

We reached out to Columbus’ rep for comment but have not gotten a response.

Iyanla, please come fix his life. It seems Olivia Pope can’t get this one handled...

Get ready for a huge WTF moment!  Andre Johnson, part of Northstar (an LA-based rap group with Wu-Tang affiliations) was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center after he cut off his penis AND jumped off a second story balcony. Police are calling it a suicide attempt...

By the time police arrived at the North Hollywood apartment building, Andre was lying on the sidewalk critically injured.  Members of the group, who live in the apartment building, told TMZ that Andre was not on "any hard drugs that would cause him to do such a thing."

BLANK STARE.  Y'all sure?

 

We'll keep you posted on his progress....
