Basketball Wives star Jackie Christie and her estranged daughter, TaKari Lee, are in a full-out war all over Jackie’s ill grandson, Jaxson.

Last month, a friend of the family set up a GoFundMe page in efforts to raise money for Jaxson, who, according to the site, was “badly burned on his head, neck, and chest while being cared for at a local daycare earlier this week.”

The description claims that, “Due to the extent of his injuries he has to go at least once a week to Harborview M.C. to meet with the children’s burn unit. His mother cannot go to work and doesn’t have enough vacation time to cover the extended leave she will need to provide around the clock care for Jaxson.”


Fans recently got wind of the money-raising efforts and slammed Jackie and her husband, Doug Christie, for not helping out with medical expenses. After being berated on Twitter, the reality star and a woman seemingly defending her daughter got into a heated exchange.

Based on the Twitter conversation, it appears as though Jackie is taking legal action. “Extortionist tweeters add the hash tag #blamejackie to your thousands of hate tweets k so o can get it trending #FBI,” she wrote.

In response, a woman that goes by the name of Christina, tweeted, “@JackieChristie but we do see you are rattled cuz you are turning to the law lol!!! Check on your grandchild’s health!!”

It’s unclear why Jackie and her daughter are estranged, but TaKari reportedly claims it’s because she’s “darker skinned and heavier” than Jackie’s other daughter, Chantel.


What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Sattelite



One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind; to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crisis around the world and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genius behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at it’s core, it’s like, listen, ‘we gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of back bone, a message about climate change and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the cautiousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural ills and weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “Integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying ‘here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
