Blac Chyna’s ‘Biggest Flex’ Is Providing for Her Kids Without Child Support From Rob Kardashian and Tyga

Published

on

Bag secured! Blac Chyna has a fancy house, luxurious cars and a growing business empire, but the former video vixen said her “biggest flex” is providing for her two kids without financial help from exes Rob Kardashian and Tyga

The star, 32, was questioned about her greatest accomplishment during an interview on SiriusXMs Hip Hop Nation. “Just honestly taking care of my kids by myself as a single parent, but no child support,” she replied. Chyna shares daughter, Dream, 3, with Rob and son, King Cairo, 7, with the “Taste” rapper. 

In Touch previously confirmed the Keeping Up With the Kardashians alum, 33, no longer had to pay Chyna child support in March 2019. According to documents, the exes agreed to the modification on February 6, but a judge officially signed off on the paperwork on March 1, stating they both wouldn’t have to pay each other.

“The parties shall equally share the costs of the minor child’s medical insurance premiums, any uninsured emergency or routine medical care, and any mutually agreed upon pre-school or private school,” read the court docs obtained by In Touch at the time. The TV personality and Lashed founder were also able to “claim Dream as a dependent on their taxes.”

That ruling is still in play today, an insider told E! News on Wednesday, September 16, revealing nothing has changed with their agreement. “Chyna has not asked for support since that time,” the source says about their monetary situation.

In December, Chyna discussed how pleased she was to be cordial with not one, but both of her former flames. “Coparenting is actually really good. I’m definitely grateful for my baby fathers and what not,” she told Us Weekly. “They do give me that break so I can rejuvenate myself as a woman and just get back focus. Or, if I have to do something, it just gives me that leeway. So, that’s, I think, key.” 

Chyna previously dated the “Bored in the House” lyricist, 30, from 2011 to 2014. She later got engaged to Rob, but they ultimately called it quits in December 2016.

Say hello to the newest addition to the Baldwin family: Eduardo “Edu” Pao Lucas Baldwin!

The newborn son of Alec and Hilaria Baldwin made an adorable surprise appearance during Baldwin’s interview this week on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

During the interview, which was conducted via Zoom link, Baldwin was interrogated by Ellen DeGeneres about just how many children he’s planning on having, as the 62-year-old actor welcomed his sixth child.

“It’s my wife, she’s a collector! Some people collect stamps, but my wife is a baby collector. She collects babies,” Baldwin responded.

DeGeneres also jokingly suggested that she had heard Baldwin was so used to the childbirth process at this point that he had stopped to get himself a snack on the way to the hospital while Hilaria was in labour.

“That’s not true, Ellen, and I resent my wife for lying that I put my gastronomic needs ahead of her needs,” the 30 Rock star joked, before pulling Hilaria into the frame of the chat alongside him.

“Let’s call the witness to the witness stand,” Baldwin said.

As Hilaria joined the frame, we caught a glimpse of the beautiful baby boy Eduardo who she cradled in her arms, making what is most likely his first television appearance.

“I have photographic proof!” Hilaria responded to the snack-buying allegations. “I was taking photos so it’s really hard for you to not agree with me,” she said through laughter to Baldwin.

“In his defence, it was my idea,” she finally admitted.

Hilaria then gave an insight into what it was like while she was giving birth with Baldwin in the room, claiming that in the past he had driven her “crazy”.

“Because the last two babies that I had, I didn’t invite him while I was in labour until I got my epidural because he drives me crazy,” Hilaria said.

“This time during COVID, it’s much more complicated and he had to come with me. So we’re walking around and my contractions are going and I’m like, ‘Please eat something because later on I’m going to kill you if you don’t eat something because I’m not going to be able to handle you’.”

“So yes, it was my idea [to stop for food],” she revealed. “And I just bounced from side to side timing my contractions while he shoved a quiche in his mouth.”

The Mom Brain podcast co-host then held up little baby Eduardo, showing off her little bundle of joy to DeGeneres.

“He’s constantly attached to me,” she said. “He’s not a girl but he’s perfect.”

The Ellen DeGeneres Show airs weekdays at 12.00pm on Nine. Catch up on latest episodes on 9Now.

The Sims 4 Is Introducing 100+ New Skin Tones In A Huge Win For In-Game Representation

Published

on

By

The Sims 4 is *finally* upgrading their skin tone range next month, in what can only be described as a huge win for diversity in gaming.

Developers announced the exciting news in a statement on the website on Thursday, with over 100 new skin tones to choose from.

“Bigger changers are coming! In December, we’ll be rolling out at least a hundred new skin tone swatches in cool, neutral, and warm tones with a particular emphasis on darker skin tones. Beyond the new additions, we are introducing a slider on all swatches, both new and existing, that will allow you to modify each selected tone to be lighter or darker,” the statement read.

“We’ve heard your feedback on makeup as well. To truly complement the expanded library of skin tones launching in December, we’ll also be adding new sliders for makeup in Create-A-Sim mode. The updated customization options will offer an entirely new level of control of your Sim’s appearance so they can look as flawless as possible.”

The new skin tones will be available from October 6 on Mac/PC and November 10 for console gamers.

In addition to improving the range of skin tones, The Sims 4 are also introducing two new base game hairstyles to help improve representation of all people in game.

Obviously, two hairstyles isn’t a lot, but it seems to be a step in the right direction after years of fans asking for it.

As you’d expect, the reaction online has been mixed, with many expressing their excitement for the new update, while others remain disappointed that it took so long for the change to happen.

The new announcement is a huge win for the community, especially for the larger creators who have spent months using their platform to call the developers out on the lack of diversity in the game.

Here’s hoping we’ll continue to see a commitment to improving representation in-game moving forward.

The Charges Against the Louisville Cop Involved in the Killing of Breonna Taylor, Explained

Published

on

By

On Wednesday, September 23rd, over six months after three police officers killed Breonna Taylor while she was asleep in her apartment, a grand jury announced that just one ex-cop involved would face charges in a case that became a focal point of this year’s protests against police brutality and systemic injustice.

A Kentucky grand jury decided to levy just three counts of first-degree wanton endangerment at Brett Hankison, while declining to press charges against the other two officers, Jonathan Mattingly and Myles Cosgrove. The decision was a far cry from the justice Taylor’s family and protesters across the country had been demanding for months, and following the announcement, a new wave of protests in response to the decision quickly took off in Louisville and other cities.

Wanton endangerment is a class D felony, and at a press conference Wednesday, Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron said that, if convicted, Hankinson — who was fired from the Louisville Metro Police Department in June — could face up to five years in prison for each count. A warrant has been issued for his arrest, and his bail was set at $15,000.

Along with being nowhere near the murder charges for all three officers advocates had been seeking, both lawyers for Taylor’s family and other activists were quick to point out a frustrating specific in the already-slim charges against Hankison. The charges of endangerment were tied to the multiple shots Hankison fired that traveled through the walls of Taylor’s apartment into the apartment directly behind hers. The charging documents only listed the initials of those in the other apartment as being endangered; the initials of Breonna Taylor, the only person who was killed, were not included.

“Jefferson County Grand Jury indicts former ofc. Brett Hankison with 3 counts of Wanton Endangerment in 1st Degree for bullets that went into other apartments but NOTHING for the murder of Breonna Taylor,” Ben Crump, an attorney for Taylor’s family, tweeted. “This is outrageous and offensive! If Brett Hankison’s behavior was wanton endangerment to people in neighboring apartments, then it should have been wanton endangerment in Breonna Taylor’s apartment too. In fact, it should have been ruled wanton murder!”

Ultimately, not a single charge was filed directly in relation to Breonna Taylor’s death.

It is unclear when Hankison’s trial will start, but AG Cameron said his office was “prepared to prove these charges” against him. Cameron also addressed those dissatisfied with the scope of the charges, saying, “Our job is to present the facts to the grand jury, and the grand jury then applies the facts… If we simply act on outrage, there is no justice — mob justice is not justice. Justice sought by violence is not justice. It just becomes revenge.”

Per the Louisville Courier Journal, Cameron also said that the grand jury decided homicide charges were not applicable, and that the majority of the officers’ actions were justified. During the botched raid on Taylor’s home, the police entered her apartment using a no-knock warrant, believing it was allegedly being used as a place for drug suspects to pick up packages. While the police claimed that they announced their arrival, Taylor’s boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, said otherwise; so when the three cops burst through the door, Walker, a registered gun owner, fired a warning shot at the people he believed were intruders, and one officer was struck in the thigh.

Ultimately, Cameron said, Mattingly and Cosgrove were justified in firing off multiple shots because Walker had fired first. Cameron added that there was “nothing conclusive to say” that any bullets Hankison fired hit Taylor.

Aside from Hankison’s eventual trial, the avenues for justice for Taylor have now considerably narrowed. The FBI is conducting its own investigation for possible civil rights violations, and Walker has filed a lawsuit against the LMPD, claiming he was a victim of police misconduct and arguing that he should be given immunity from prosecution. (While it took over 100 days to file even the slimmest of charges in Taylor’s case, Walker was swiftly booked on an attempted murder charge that wasn’t dropped until late May.)

As it stands, the only justice Taylor’s family will likely receive came in the form of a settlement with the City of Louisville over a wrongful death lawsuit. The terms included a $12 million payout and the promise that the city would institute a new set of policing reforms. While that is something, as Taylor’s mother, Tamika Palmer, made abundantly clear at a press conference announcing the settlement, it was never going to be enough.

“We must not lose focus on what the real drive is, and with that being said, it’s being time to move forward with the criminal charges, because she deserves that and much more. Her beautiful spirit and personality is working through all of us on the ground, so please continue to say her name: Breonna Taylor.”
