Remember when Angie Stone was accused of knocking her daughter’s teeth out? Well now, the singer is speaking out against the accusations, suggesting that she is not responsible for the missing tooth.

“I think that in her defense, I think the tooth probably fell out,” she said on a new episode of The Steve Harvey Show. “When you have an altercation as such, you can bite down on your lip and if the tooth is already brittle and decaying, it’s coming out.”

Harvey appeared incredibly confused by Stone’s account, responding, “Ya’ll get in this incident and her teeth fell out. Ya’ll was talking’ too loud, yawl was hollerin’? I’m trying to figure out when the teeth fell out.”

The audience was equally confused, but Angie continued to dig a bigger hole. “I can’t allow you to put me in that spot … We were definitely in an altercation and it’s not that I’m proud of it, but you not gonna fight me in my house. You not gonna fight me period, I am your mother.”

In March of 2015, Angela Brown, the singer’s legal name, was charged with aggravated assault after being accused of using a metal stand to hit her 30-year-old daughter, Diamond Stone.

Per the report, Stone claimed Diamond hit her with a “closed fist to her face.” The singer stated that in order to defend herself, she struck her daughter with a metal stand, however, she was not aware that she hit her. “Once she realized this she quickly put the stand down and attempted to get away,” the report read.

So did she, or didn’t she? We still don’t know.


Netflix’s ‘Step Sisters’ Is ‘Bring It On’ … But Way More Woke!



Netflix is getting ready to “Bring It On” … in more ways than one. The streaming service’s new flick Step Sisters is reminiscent of the 90s dance film, but delves deeper into racial themes like cultural appropriation, tokenization and interracial dating.

In the film Megalyn Echikunwoke (Arrow) plays the president of a black sorority who is tasked with teaching one of the campus’ white sororities how to step for a charity competition. At first glimpse the film seems to be stepping into a can of worms — and had folks on Twitter up in arms, but the creators and cast told HipHollywood it isn’t about cultural appropriation but instead cultural exchange.

“There’s a strong political message, and there’s a lot of racial content,” said Nia Jervier. “But I think that the pill that may be difficult to swallow is dipped in honey, because it’s funny.”

What also helps is that producer/writers like Lena Waithe (Masters of None), Chuck Hayward (Dear White People) and Ben Cory Jones (Underground) are behind the project – so you know it’s woke.

“At the end of the day, Jamila the lead character in our minds she’s reaching over to show them a part of our culture. It doesn’t dilute our culture,” said Jones. ” And I love that we can take stepping and evolve that into issues of race and culture.”

Step Sisters begins streaming on Netflix January 20th.
