Sanaa Lathan is having a little fun with rumors she’s now dating rapper French Montana. Last week the actress posted a promo photo on her Instagram page of her film The Perfect Guy, but instead of her co-stars (Michael Ealy and Morris Chestnut) standing behind her, it was a photo of Diddy and French Montana.
HipHollywood caught up with Lathan during the press junket for the film, to get the scoop on the hilarious photo. “You know with the internet you can’t control anything these days, you try to ignore it but sometimes you have to have fun with it,” laughed Lathan.
If you recall, Lathan was caught on video looking a little disshelved and wasted in the back of an uber a few weeks ago with French Montana. Diddy posted the video of the groups night of partying and from there the rumors began.
French told Ebro In The Morning a few days later that the group was just having a good time, but didn’t quite deny the two were an item. “I am not denying nobody,” he said. “All I am saying is I am just having fun. That is all I am trying to do, I am not trying to be caught in the box of anything. I just want to have fun.”
Hmmm, we are definitely going to keep an eye on these two. The real question is did Sanaa have too much Ciroc or Effin Vodka that night?
Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice
Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.
On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.
It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.
So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.
“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”
Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”
And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.
For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”
Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
