Does Blac Chyna have a new man in her life? It appears so. She has been getting cozy with professional boxer J’Leon Love in the past few days. Both Chyna and J’Leon have been posting up cutesy photos and videos on their Instagram accounts. Get the deets on their budding romance and find out why K. Michelle read neo-soul singer Jaguar Wright for filth on social media last night inside….
While her ex-fiance Tyga runs around with his underaged girlfriend, Blac Chyna has found herself a new man…and one her age.
Meet 27-year-old professional boxer J’Leon Love. He is the current WBA International Super Middleweight Champion signed to Floyd Mayweather’s Money Team Management. It appears he and Blac Chyna are getting close after she posted him as her #MCM on Instagram last week. Since then, the two have posted up lovey dovey videos of one another and J'Leon posted the coupledom pic atop, but eventually deleted it. BUT, the videos are still there.
In one clip, J’Leon and Chyna are laying across what appears to be a bed with The Weeknd's “Earned It” playing in the background as they talked about people assuming they’re in a relationship. Why ever would people assume that?
Neither Chyna or J’Leon have confirmed they are actually in a relationship, but it definitely looks like the makings of a budding romance.
Right now, J’Leon is training for a huge fight at the MGM Las Vegas against Jason Escalera on June 20th. Many boxers refrain from engaging in sexual acts before fights, and according to reports, J’Leon is doing the same. So, no sex for them for at least a month. Sources close to Chyna tell TMZ she’s down for the cause saying, "I feel like it's a good thing and I'll deal with it with him!"
We hope so. A month isn't THAT long to wait before jumping in the bed with someone after just meeting.
Elsewhere on social media....
Another day, another social media showdown. This time, R&B songstress K. Michelle and neo-soul singer Jaguar Wright were going at it after Jaguar voiced her opinion on K. singing one of Leela James’ songs. We’ll explain….
On Monday, “Love & Hip Hop: New York” stars Yandy Smith and Mendeecees wedding special aired where K. Michelle was asked to sing a selection. The reality star sang a cover of Leela James’ track “Fall For You,” a single from her fifth studio album with the same title released in 2014.
Well, that didn’t sit well Jaguar, so she took to her Instagram to speak on it. She posted up a video clip of K singing with the caption:
If you’re unfamiliar as to who Jaguar Wright is, she is a Philly native who sung background vocals on Jay Z’s MTV Unplugged special. She is also a member of QuestLove's Okayplayer collective, providing background vocals for The Roots and Al Green. She also appeared in a few Sprite commercials back in the 90s.
In response to K’s clap back, Jaguar then posted up a series of videos to respond to explain what she really meant when she came off. She claims she didn’t say anything bad about K, she just wished it was Leela singing her own song. The Philly native said it would have been appropriate for Leela to sing the song because she’s currently touring and promoting the song “Fall For You.” She said “It’s not like the song is 8 years old and it was just apart of a catalog, it’s current.”
So what does Leela have to say? She doesn't seem bothered the least bit. In fact, her track "Fall For You" started trending on iTunes top searches and it was pushed to the top of the iTunes charts, coming in at No. 3 on the Top Songs list. We're sure Leela is all for her music climbing the charts, even if it's because of a social media feud.
While we get what Jaguar is trying to say, it's not like K had much of a choice on the song selection. Yandy chose that song and chose K to sing it so...there's that.
In other news....
K. Michelle announced she has a new show titled “Players Court” coming to VH1 soon. She didn’t reveal what it’s about, so we’re just going to have to wait until the deets are spilled. She’s also filming for her other VH1 reality show “K Michelle: My Life.” Not only that, the award winning singer also has a documentary series coming to Centric called "BEING K. Michelle." The one-hour premiere is set to air June 6th at 10pm. Congrats K.
Nia Long is set to walk down the aisle with San Antonio Spurs coach Ime Udoka...and we've got a shot of the ring inside!
You might have heard by now that Nia Long, who recently landed the leading role in ABC's Uncle Buck remake, has gotten engaged to her long-term boyfriend Ime Udoka. Now, it's no longer a rumor. After being spotted out at dinner over the weekend flashing a huge rock, earlier today, she tweeted out a pic of the ring with the caption "#FOREVER."
A few years ago, while promoting "The Best Man Holiday", Nia hinted at marriage to Rolling Out when she opened up about staying the course and being open to love when it comes around. She said:
"I think that women who are extremely driven to success, ambitious, I think they get to a point in their lives where they're like, 'Uh oh. I am 30-something years old, and I don't have a husband and I don't have children yet and what does that mean?' I think what it means is stay in your course because it's going to happen when it's supposed to happen."
"You have to have an open heart to be vulnerable to accept it when it does come. I think the more success you have as a woman, you kinda go, 'Well, I don't really need a man, cause look—I have everything I want,' but the truth is you do need a partner because at some point in your life you're not going to want to walk alone."
The Single Moms Club star also spoke to Jet in 2013 about looking for rings saying, "Last time we visited San Antonio we looked at rings, but I'm not in any rush."
Well, two years later it looks like it's going to happen! Congrats to the twosome!
In addition to Uncle Buck (with Mike Epps) this fall, Nia will reprise her role as "Jordan" in The Best Man Wedding due out in April 2016.
