Martin Lawrence’s ex-wife, Shamicka Lawrence, can relate all too well to what Kim Kardashian and the West family went through following Kanye West’s recent hospitalization.

Shamicka first started dating Martin in 1997, one year after the actor was arrested and hospitalized for running down Ventura Blvd., screaming and brandishing a gun.

In 1999, well into the pair’s relationship, the comedian lapsed into a three-day coma after collapsing from heat exhaustion while jogging in hot weather, wearing a nylon tracksuit and a wool cap.

Years later, the comedian admitted that drugs and the pressures of Hollywood caused his bizarre behavior. While drugs may not have been the cause of Kanye West’s recent psychotic break, Shamicka has the perfect advice for the rapper.

While on the red carpet for the EBONY Power 100 Gala, HipHollywood caught up with the former Hollywood Exes star to get her thoughts on West’s latest meltdown. “He needs to get his rest. A lot of times, a lot of the celebrities, Black men especially, there’s so much going on, so much pressure on them, they tend to keep going and going.”

She added, “A lot of that is just pressure, the added pressure upon pressure of being a Black man. Just rest and start enjoying who you are, and stop giving out so much and give back to yourself.”

West, who reportedly suffered a “temporary psychosis due to sleep deprivation and dehydration,” is currently receiving outpatient treatment at home. His wife, Kim Kardashian, has remained right by his side.


Girl Power Prevails At The 2017 American Music Awards



Music’s most amazing night went down Sunday at the Microsoft Theater in L.A. and we have to say the night was all about the ladies!

That’s right the 45th American Music Awards had some major moments and some major girl power starting with Pink and Kelly Clarkson.

The duo got the show started singing R.E.M.’s “Everybody Hurts”, but it was their solo performances that had fans going nuts.

Kelly Clarkson returned to the stage and had everyone on their feet with a medley of her classic tracks and new single “Love So Soft.”

While Pink took her career to new heights leaping off the side of a building while performing her hit single “Beautiful Trauma.”

Christina Aguilera, paid tribute to Whitney Houston with a commemorative performance for the 25th anniversary of The Bodyguard.

But the #Majah moment of the night had to be Diana Ross. The Motown legend was given the Lifetime Achievement Award, and performed some of her greatest hits before accepting the honor.
