Rap star Akon believes he may have triggered Clippers owner Donald Sterling to go on his racist rant, after being invited to a Clippers game by Sterling’s girlfriend V. Stiviano.

Akon appeared on The Insider today (April 30) and told anchor Kevin Frazier, “Ultimately, I personally think it was the visit that  started this all up,” he said, referring to his attendance at the game with video vixen Karrine Steffans. “I’mma just keep it one hundred percent. Ultimately when we got there, and then when we left, afterward there was this big argument and she called me expressing how she felt about it and I thought it would just wash away … but before you know it I guess God said it’s time to expose it.”

Akon also told Frazier when asked how he felt about Sterling calling him ” blacker than black”, that he felt sorry for him. “Being able to be clean in thought without no hatred, the feeling that can give a person, to be able to live like that, I wish he can be able to experience that one day.”

Tracee Ellis Ross Spills The Real Tea On ‘Black-ish’ Wage Demands + Deon Cole, Jenifer Lewis Weigh In

Published

on

Tracee Ellis Ross is unveiling the truth behind recent reports that she was demanding more money for her time spent on ABC’s Black-ish.

Just last week, The Hollywood Reporter suggested Tracy was in negotiations and asking for more for not only going into her fourth season on the hit show, but because her male co-host, Anthony Anderson, makes significantly more than she does.

The report also claimed that if she didn’t make any headway, she might step away and consider guest starring on other shows.

Over the weekend, Ellis addressed the reports and didn’t exactly deny the claims. In a lengthy statement shared on social media, Ross said that she “was in renegotiation, like many actors find themselves in during the fourth season of a successful show.”

She continued, “I wanted to be compensated in a way that matches my contribution to a show that I love for many reasons, including the opportunity it allows me to reshape what it is to be a fully realized black woman on TV.”

She did, however, confirm that claims there were threats are false. “I wish I could have been called by the reporter to confirm that,” she wrote.

Tracy’s statement falls right in line with what her co-stars, Deon Cole and Jenifer Lewis, explained to HipHollywood on Sunday night during the 2018 SAG Awards.

When asked about Ross’ desire to earn more money, Lewis said, “Tracee should have more money, you should have more money, every woman should have more money because we’ve been in the background too long. ”

Television’s favorite mom continued, “We’ve got grab her by the pussy in the White House and women are not standing for it anymore. Black-ish is a very important show, we are dealing with all the pressing issues of our time … This is the time to look it in the face and address it and come through the fire. Women are not taking it anymore.”

Deon also shut down rumors that Ross would be taking a back seat, telling us “There’s two sides to every story. Tracee is fine, everybody is fine, and everybody is getting paid. Everybody is eating. It’s all love I promise you.”
