Michael Costello came under fire this week after allegedly calling up and coming designer, Maxine James the N-word.
“Your probably just a n*gger lover defending her,” he apparently wrote to a fan after being accused of stealing one of Maxine’s dress designs. “I am royalty b*tch! I dressed Beyonce! Who are they gonna to believe!”
Michael first responded, claiming that “the hurtful screenshot circulating is fake and does not represent my views on society, nor do I condone the use of such a terrible term.” The designer’s team has since sent HipHollywood a new statement, proving that the Instagram post was indeed photoshopped.
“The image of concern was distributed by an Instagram account that has continually harassed and slandered Costello in an attempt to defame his character. His family, brand and employees have all fallen victim to attacks from the account,” Michael’s lawyer Neama Rahmani tells HipHollywood. “It is believed that a disgruntled intern, who is no longer employed with the company, created the account.”
“Fortunately, Instagram has been very cooperative in working with Mr. Costello to delete accounts created by the people who created the false picture and who are attempting to disseminate it. Mr. Costello and his attorneys will continue working with Instagram and the legal system to bring these cyber bullies to justice.”
‘Married To Medicine’ Reunion Shockers: Dr. Jackie Calls Off Divorce + Dr. G Had An Affair?
The season 5 reunion of Married To Medicine is by far the best and most shocking one to date. After a season filled with cheating spouses, communication issues and financial woes the ladies dropped some major bombshells about their marriages during their first ever three-part reunion and fans were shook. Here are three moments from part 2 that had us clutching our proverbial pearls.
The moment OBGYN Dr. Simone revealed to the cast that she had filed for a divorce from husband Cecil Whitmore was definitely emotional. All of the ladies – Dr. Jackie, Dr. Contessa, Mariah, Quad Webb-Lunceford, Toya Bush-Harris, and Dr. Heavenly Kimes were in tears and host Andy Cohen looked like he had seen a ghost. According to Simone she and Cecil got into a heated argument over the summer and after he refused to see the marriage counselor and left their home to meet a female friend she filed for divorce.
While fans thought things were over between Dr. Jackie and her husband Curtis Berry after his headline making affair, the couple revealed they were giving their marriage another try. The OB/GYN and two-time breast cancer survivor who initially filed for divorce three days after finding out Berry had a mistress, told Andy that she had filed papers to dissolve the divorce a few days before the reunion taping.
