I woke up this morning with this song in my heart! You make life sooo goood. So excited Rahsaan Patterson is the guest on my show #TheScene this Thursday 12:30pET on SiriusXM 141 HUR Voices (HURvoices.com). If you don't have siriusXM, you can do a free trial at www.siriusxm.com.
Oh my! I know celebs try to protect their children as much as they can from the public, but outright denying them? That is what Sebastian 'Tian' McKissack, the alleged son of El Debarge and Pebbles Reid is saying in a new tell all book called "Deceptions of Achieving" set to drop August 25th.
rhymeswithsnitch.com reports not only did El Debarge & Pebbles hook up but that they indeed have a love child. Rumors have been around for a while but came to light in a more concrete way when Diary of a Hollywood King posted an interview with McKissack where McKissack said he was the child of Pebbles and an unknown doctor. THEN, El Debarge's mother responded to McKissack's interview by saying McKissack's father was not a doctor but was El Debarge and that McKissack actually lived with her between 2007-2009. (You can read more about that here)
If Mckissack was indeed lying in that interview, what's to say he is not lying now? Why would El Debrage's mother lie? Was that REALLY her saying El is the father? HMMM. It's all quite crazy isn't it? He does look like them though doesn't he? Peeples must be PISSED!!
“Deceptions of Achieving” will detail how Pebbles and El Debarge's decision to not acknowledge their alleged son affected his life. McKissack will also share how being sexually abused as a child impacted him as well.
Provided all of this is true, I hope that some good will come out of it. Scandalous family secrets like this can keep the people involved in some serious emotional pain, fear and turmoil. Either way I hope McKissack gets the help he needs...'cause even if this is a publicity stunt, it is a indeed a sick one.
Speaking of sick, I can't helps but sing "If you want a ride in my Mercedes boy..." Terrible isn't it. I know!
Pray for all of us! Lawdt knows we all need it!
If you are a Lauryn fan like I am, I know you were like OK Lauryn please don't start the pattern of being late to concerts again. I hate negative press for our girl, but here is what TMZ is reporting:
Hill played the House of Blues in Chicago last week, and our HOB sources tells us she was supposed to start playing at 10:30 -- but...didn't actually make it to the stage until 11:20.
Once she did, most accounts say Lauryn's opening song performance was terrible, and when a fan called her out and flipped her off ... she berated him and had him tossed by security.
The person who shot this video tells TMZ they decided to leave after 2 more songs (which they called "rushed and sloppy") ... and say they saw a huge line of people at the box office asking for a refund.

Cissy Houston is not happy about Lifetime's biopic about her late daughter.
The gospel singer issued a statement to Entertainment Tonight on Tuesday criticizing the network and those involved in making the television movie, which stars Yaya DaCosta as Whitney Houston and Arlen Escarpeta as her ex-husband Bobby Brown.
"Lifetime has chosen to go ahead with the movie about Whitney in spite of my family's objections," Houston said. "No one connected with this movie knew Whitney or anything about her relationship with Bobby."
"In the two years since Whitney's death, many people have stepped forward to speak about their close relationship with her," she continued. "I find it difficult to believe people who knew and supposedly loved her would participate in a movie about her done by folks who didn't know her."
"We are exhausted by the continuing misinformation and comments offered by people who did not know her," the statement concludes. "Please please let her rest."
The octogenarian's remarks are curious, considering that her daughter's "Waiting to Exhale" co-star Angela Bassett is directing the film. Deborah Cox, who is recording vocals for the biopic, also knew Houston since they sang duet on the song "Same Script, Different Cast."

Common is one of those artists that is thoughtful and substantive, let alone fine as HELL! And you know The Breakfast Club on Power 105 will go in and fearlessly ask all kinds of stuff -- In this interview, Common talks abt violence in Chicago, music, acting, broadway, Captain America, marriage as well as his relationships with Erykah, Serena, Taraji and more. I love it when Charlamagne says - You ain't the kind of artist that will be looking stupid performing your work on stage when you're older - LOL! Enjoy!
Kelly Rowland was spotted shopping at Juvenile Shop in Sherman Oaks, Calif., over the weekend—and E! News reports that her registry is entirely built for a baby boy!
Multiple sources tell E! News that Rowland and husband Tim Witherspoon are expecting a son, but it's not as if that news comes as a surprise. Not only did Rowland reveal that she was expecting by posting a pair of baby Air Jordans next to her hubby's far bigger hightops, but former Destiny's Child mate Michelle Williams went and spilled the beans in June.
"I'm so happy that I have another nephew coming to babysit for a few hours and give back to its rightful owners," Williams told HipHollywood at a pre-BET Awards event. "She just looks so wonderful, I'm so happy for her."
In addition to boys' clothing, among the goodies Rowland has registered for are: A Ferrari F1 Baby Walker (for the little luxury sports car enthusiast within), a Skip Hop Pronto! Changing Station, a Nuna travel crib and a ton of Belly Bandit shapewear.
The 33-year-old mommy-to-be was also overheard squealing, "OMG, this is so little...this is so cute!" while examining some little blue onesies.
Rowland also, not surprisingly, looked as though she was either coming from or on her way to workout (don't you carry a Chanel bag to the gym?). She's been keeping her fans in the loop regarding her still-kickin' fitness routine, sharing pics of herself doing yoga, on the treadmill and more.
