XXXTentacion Is NOT Faking His Death to Promote “No Pulse” Album

XXXTentacion’s tragic shooting death has unsurprisingly led to a renewed interest in his music. As is the norm when any popular artist dies, their fans rush to buy their music, and in more recent times, their streaming numbers instantly shoot up.

In XXXTentacion’s case, his Amazon album sales have skyrocketed more than 700,000%, his “SAD!” single rose to the top of iTunes’ top songs chart, beating out Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s new single “Apes**t,” and his ? album (which features the song “SAD!”) climbed to No. 3 overall on the iTunes charts. “SAD!” also leapt to No. 2 on Spotify’s U.S. chart, and it’s likely that his albums ? and 17 will see a jump on the Billboard 200 chart as well.

The renewed interest in XXX’s music has also led to a number conspiracy theories about his rumored third album, with many fans believing that the rapper didn’t actually die, but faked his death to promote an album called No Pulse, which isn’t really as crazy as it sounds, considering the stunts XXXTentacion has pulled in the past.

The No Pulse album promo theory, which has been perpetuated heavily on social media (especially Twitter), points to things like XXX’s face tattoo not being visible in the crime scene video, and the lack of blood on his body or on/in the car, as clues that he’s actually still alive and simply faking his death. But those are just conspiracy theories, as XXXTentacion’s death has been extensively documented and was confirmed multiple times by Florida officials.

Also, the below photo shows blood on the seat’s headrest after his body was removed:

And this photo shows that the man in the video, did, in fact have tattoos on his face, but the angle/lighting obscured them:

As for the reports that he was planning to release an album called No Pulse, those are completely false as well, as there is no evidence that he was working on an album with that title. As a matter of fact, that title completely contradicts the album title that XXX had been teasing months before his death: Skins.

X first revealed plans to release Skins back in April when he posted a photo of yellow construction tape on Instagram with a caption that read “skins ‘the album’ coming soon.” The photo received more than 500,000 likes, but X took it down shortly after. A few weeks later, he provided fans with an update on the album by posting a message on his IG story that read: “I’m just getting started, next album will be done very soon.”

Some of X’s fans have pointed out that witnesses said X had “no pulse” after he was shot, speculating that this was a clue to the title of the rumored album.

One user wrote: “He’s not dead. He has an album coming out in the next few days/week called ‘no pulse’. It’s to promote the album & to prove that no one cares about people until they’re dead.”

A user replied to that tweet, saying: “Sis they’re not going to go through all this trouble and they’re not going to make millions of people cry to just prove something. he’s dead.”

The original user replied: “Yeah [I know] that but he probably would have already come out to say it was just a test and also if u record an album or song before u die then the record label u were signed with can release it that’s probably what they’re doing.”

Take a look at more fan theories below:

Fans also pointed to a video of XXXTentacion claiming to “still be alive,” but that clip was from 2017 after it was rumored that he committed suicide by hanging himself from a tree, which turned out to be a publicity stunt to promote his new video at the time.

The conspiracy theories have no doubt caused a lot of confusion online.

In addition to confirmation from Broward County, Florida officials, X’s manager released a statement confirming his death. “On June 18, 2018, Jahseh Onfroy—known worldwide as XXXTentacion—tragically passed away from a gunshot wound in Deerfield, Florida,” the statement reads. “It is with great sadness that the news is confirmed in this official statement by his team—manager Solomon Sobande, EMPIRE, Bob Celestin, Esq. and AKW PR. In deference of his family , friends and loved ones and in light of further investigation, we ask that their privacy is respected at this time.”

The statement continued: “XXXTentacion touched the lives of millions around the globe and will forever reside in the hearts of countless fans who listened to his music, attended his concerts, and felt the glow of his uncontainable, undeniable, and unique spirit. News about memorial services to be issued forthcoming.”

Diplo took to Instagram to pay tribute to the rapper right after his death and revealed that he and Skrillex were planning on helping produce Skins. “He texted me this weekend, it was one of his goals to get me & Skrillex to finish his next album … I Invited him to LA this week. I was wondering if he was gonna come.”

It isn’t clear whether or not Skins was finished (or close to being finished) at the time of XXXTentacion’s death, or whether the album will ever see the light of day, but it’s very possible that even if it isn’t officially released, select tracks will be either leaked online or released by his label.

An unfinished version of the song “BAD!” was posted on YouTube a few months ago, and it’s believed to be one of the last songs XXX worked on before he was killed. It’s also rumored to have been on the tracklist for Skins.

XXXTentacion was gunned down as he left a motorcycle dealership on the afternoon of June 18th, 2018. Police are still looking for two suspects who they believe fled the scene in a dark SUV.

Witnesses told cops a Louis Vuitton bag was stolen from the rapper’s car, sparking the theory from police that his shooting was the result of a robbery. Authorities are offering a $3,000 reward for any information leading to an arrest.

Masika Kalysha Goes on Twitter Rant After Fans Discover She’s Dating NFL QB Geno Smith

Love & Hip Hop Hollywood‘s Masika Kalysha is apparently in a happy new relationship. But even though she’s been subtly posting the new bae on social media, she’s kinda pissed that we found out his identity.

Masika’s (rumored) new boyfriend is NFL quarterback Geno Smith. She recently posted a series of photos on Instagram of her birthday dinner at TAO restaurant. She can be seen holding Smith’s hand but (barely) blurred out his face.

Many peeped the mystery man and was instantly interested in who the LHHH star was dating. The snooping and rumors must have gotten to Masika because she unleashed a rant on Twitter.

“Smfh y’all talk so much sh*t b/c I don’t share sh*t. I try 2 share parts of my bday wit y’all & y’all wanna do a f**king Fbi investigation to figure out some sh*t,” she wrote. “And you wonder why a bitch keeps her private life private. Y’all ruin everything, blowup everything, make up everything.”

She also goes on to say that she has dated several well-known men in the past without much public scrutiny because white paparazzi don’t know who she is. “A lot of them don’t know the difference between a basketball wife & a soccer mom,” she tweeted.

Despite Twitter’s “FBI investigation,” Geno Smith is actually the one who outed the alleged couple by posting a pic of the two on his Instagram story.

You may recall Masika’s very contentious relationship with Fetty Wap. The two have a two-year-old daughter, Khari.

Blac Chyna Is NOT Pregnant with YBN Almighty Jay’s Baby, But She Did Get a Tattoo of His Name

Is Blac Chyna pulling a Cardi B “Let me fat in peace” excuse? Last week, social media was abuzz with speculation she was pregnant with her teenage boyfriend’s baby. However, her camp is now squashing the rumor.

Sources close to Chyna says she is not pregnant with YBN Almighty Jay’s child. “The third time is NOT a charm,” reports TMZ.

The rumor gained lots of traction last Friday when Chyna attended her 5-year-old son’s kindergarten graduation and her form-fitting dress seemed to reveal a slight “baby bump.” But, it seems a delicious lunch is what caused the tiny bump and she was simply bloated.

Chyna, 30, and YBN, 18, began dating in February and first faced baby rumors in April. Though they claim she’s not pregnant now, YBN recently revealed the couple is not using contraception and that he would be open to having a baby with Chyna.

“I don’t wear condoms. I would not want to f**k a b***h I did not want to get pregnant. If Chyna got pregnant, I would keep that s**t, like ‘ohh daddy love you,’ I love that a**.”

Chyna, a mother of two, has also expressed her desire to have more children in the future. She told Us Magazine:

“I wanna have maybe like two more [children]. I wouldn’t mind having four; I think four is a good number. No more after that. Five is too many. I’d have to get a minivan for sure, and I’m not riding in no minivan.”

The relationship that has raised many eyebrows due to their age difference also seems to be getting serious. Fans recently noticed that Chyna has gotten a tattoo of YBN’s name. A new photo she posted on Instagram showed the name “Jay” inked on her arm.

Further inspection of her IG photos indicate the tattoo isn’t so new, but I guess since it’s subtle and small, it’s been easy to overlook.

Anthony Bourdain’s Girlfriend Asia Argento Was Cheating Before His Suicide?

Anthony Bourdain was found dead in his hotel room in France early Friday morning (Jun. 8) after killing himself.

According to reports, his good friend, chef Eric Ripert, was the one who discovered him. The two were in France shooting for Bourdain’s CNN show Parts Unknown. French authorities have confirmed that Bourdain’s method of suicide was by hanging himself with his bathrobe’s belt.

We know when Anthony Bourdain died, we know how he died, and we know where he died. But one question still remains. Why did he choose to end his own life?

Bourdain was in a relationship with Italian actress Asia Argento at the time of his death. The couple started dating in early 2017 and went public with their romance in September 2017 on the red carpet of the annual Creative Arts Emmys in Los Angeles.

Before dating Argento, Bourdain was married twice. His first marriage, to a woman named Nancy Putkoski, lasted 20 years, between 1985 and 2005. He married again a year later to Ottavia Busia, with whom he had his first and only child, a now 11-year-old daughter named Ariane.

Bourdain and Busia divorced in 2016, just one year before they would celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary, due to his extensive work schedule, which required him to travel at least 250 days out of the year. Coincidentally, that’s the same reason his first marriage didn’t work out.

But his last relationship, with Asia Argento, was different. Because she was an actress, she understood the high demands of Hollywood.

Argento reportedly lives in Vigna Clara, which is north of Rome. She and Bourdain both loved to work, which is something they had in common. Bourdain explained to People, “We both work a lot and we’re both away from home a lot so we’re both circus freaks in the same circus—or different circuses I guess. He continued, “I’m a person who likes being busy, I need a project always. I’m not a person, obviously, who’s happy being idle for too long. I like waking up with things to do. I have a restless, creative mind.”

Bourdain said in a separate interview with People, “This woman likes to work. She is strong, independent, creative, and needs to have an obsession, needs to make things … I think we’re both relieved by the fact that we both respect each other’s work. Nobody’s ever going to say, ‘Oh, but you promised we were going to go to the beach.’ No, you get a gig, that’s it. Work first.”

So a long distance relationship worked between Bourdain and Argento. Yet still, the question remains… why did he kill himself if he and Argento were so happy?

TMZ may have the answer to that question. According to the gossip site, the couple “seemed tight as ever just last week,” however, “something changed within the last few days.”

Asia and Anthony were on a shoot together for Bourdain’s Parts Unknown TV show in Hong Kong that reportedly wrapped about a week ago. Anthony posted shared a photo on Instagram of the crew, including Asia, who was sitting right beside him.

The week before that, the couple were together in Florence, Italy, and still appeared to be happy and romantic.

But, according to TMZ, while Anthony was in France shooting his show, Asia was spotted back in Rome “strolling around with a French reporter named Hugo Clément.”

An Italian photographer apparently snapped photos of Argento and Clément “holding hands and hugging,” TMZ reported, however, the photog pulled the pics off the market right after news of Bourdain’s broke.

It wasn’t clear whether Anthony and Asia had broken up, but if they did, they hadn’t yet made a public announcement. Their last public appearance together was back in April at an event in New York City, TMZ noted.

So, now we’re left with the question: Did Anthony Bourdain kill himself because Asia Argento was cheating on him? Since, as far as we know, he didn’t leave a suicide note, we’ll never know why he committed suicide. However, based on interviews he conducted after his divorce from his first wife, Nancy Putkoski, Bourdain didn’t handle breakups well.

After he and Putkoski split, Bourdain said he coped by self-medicating and behaving “in a completely irresponsible and suicide way.” He told Daily Life in a 2012 interview, “I didn’t value my own life and acted accordingly. I had put myself in a very dark place and behaved recklessly in the not-too-subconscious hope that something terrible would happen. I was doing everything possible—smoking pot, drink-driving—to invite that.” He went on to say that “divorce was just the work thing in the world: it was f**king awful.”

“It wasn’t that it was even a contentious divorce, there was no long, litigious battle; it’s just a terrible thing when a relationship that great ends,” he added.

So, it’s highly possible that if Asia was, in fact, cheating on him, or if they had recently broken up, he made the decision to end his own life, considering that those thoughts had passed through his mind before. But who knows what was going through Anthony Bourdain’s mind in his final moments, other than Bourdain himself.

For what it’s worth, Asia posted and deleted a bizarre Instagram story before Bourdain’s death was reported.

About three hours before the news broke of Anthony Bourdain’s apparent suicide, Argento shared a cryptic message to her Instagram story. The story included a photo of herself wearing a ripped t-shirt that read “F**K EVERYONE.” She captioned the post, “You know who you are.”

After deleting the story, she posted a note to Instagram and Twitter calling Bourdain a “brilliant, fearless spirit” who “touched and inspired so many.”

Anthony Bourdain was 61.

Is Black Blac Chyna Pregnant With Her 18-Year-Old Boyfriend’s Child? Twitter Reacts After She Debuts Possible Baby Bump

Is Blac Chyna pregnant with baby No. 3? Social media seems to think so after recent photos suggest she may be sporting a new accessory: a baby bump.

Photos surfaced of Chyna heading to her son’s kindergarten graduation on Friday (June 8). But it wasn’t the array of balloons she was carrying for 5-year-old King Cairo that caught everyone’s attention. It was the tiny bump made noticeable by her tight pale pink dress.

While absolutely nothing has been confirmed, if the 30-year-old is, in fact, pregnant, her 18-year-old rapper boyfriend YBN Almighty Jay is most likely the father. And Twitter definitely had a few things to say.

Chyna and YBN started dating in February and it wasn’t long before baby rumors began swirling around the couple. In April, a source told Page Six Chyna was two and half months pregnant with YBN’s child. However, TMZ shot down the rumor and confirmed Chyna was NOT pregnant at that time.

And for all we know, the rumors may be false again. It’s possible Friday’s “baby bump” was caused by the photo angle, a delicious lunch, or maybe Chyna couldn’t do a little photoshop magic since the photos were taken by paparazzi.

For what it’s worth, recent images on her personal Instagram page show a much flatter stomach.

Chyna already currently has two children. Tyga is King’s father, while her ex-fiancé Rob Kardashian is the father of her 19-month old daughter, Dream.

Tekashi 6ix9ine Shuts Down Rumors of Shootout With Fetty Wap’s Crew

Tekashi 6ix9ine wants the world to know that he did NOT get into a shootout with Fetty Wap’s crew.

Reports emerged this week that the “Gummo” rapper got into a confrontation with Fetty Wap’s crew that ended in shots being fired.

The story goes that Tekashi and his crew were at a recording studio in L.A. Wednesday night (May 30) to hang out with Fetty Wap, but Tekashi never made it past the front door because Fetty’s crew stopped Tekashi and his clique from entering.

An alleged confrontation between the two crews ensued, which eventually led to someone pulling out a gun and firing shots in the air. Police were called, but by the time they showed up, everyone had already left. Cops say they recovered shell casings from the scene and were looking for the shooter.

But according to Tekashi, none of that is true because he and Fetty Wap are “brothers.” In a now-deleted video he posted on Instagram, Tekashi hopped out of a black SUV and set the record straight about the rumored shootout.

“A lot of niggas saying that niggas shot at my man Fetty Wap, ain’t nobody shoot at Fetty Wap, that’s my brother, we don’t shoot at my friends,” Tekashi said.

He then announced that he’s still in L.A. and untouched before calling out GBE. “Still in f**kin L.A. man. A lot of n**gas, they big mad. I don’t believe they raps. Tell ’em to pull up, I’m out here man,” he said.

Tekashi wrote in the caption of the post, “TMZ I love y’all but that’s not true Fetty Wap MY brother. The clock still ticking…. I don’t believe y’all raps. Y’all gonna have to prove it I think niggas just take credit for other people’s gun.”

Alleged Fight Between Tekashi 6ix9ine & Fetty Wap’s Crew Ends in Gunfire

Tekashi 6ix9ine always finds himself in the middle of some drama, and earlier this week, a confrontation between the “Gummo” rapper and Fetty Wap’s crew ended in gunfire, police said.

According to TMZ sources, 6ix9ine and his crew were at a recording studio in Los Angeles on Wednesday night (May 30) to work with Fetty Wap, but Tekashi apparently never made it inside because Fetty’s crew stopped Tekashi and co. from entering.

A confrontation between 6ix9ine and Fetty’s crew ensued, which eventually led to someone pulling out a gun and firing off a couple of shots in the air. Police were called, but by the time they showed up, everyone involved had fled the scene. Cops reportedly recovered shell casings from the scene and are now looking for the shooter.

Oddly enough, TMZ’s sources say that Fetty Wap wasn’t even in L.A. the night of the incident, and even more weird is the fact that Tekashi and Fetty’s crew have been hanging out since the shooting, posting photos and videos with each other on Instagram, TMZ claims.

6ix9ine linked up with Fetty Wap released a single together with A Boogie earlier this year called “KEKE.” The video dropped in January.

Drake Already Took DNA Test & Flew “Secret” Son Adonis Out on Private Jet for Christmas (Report)

Drake has met his rumored son Adonis “multiple times” AND has already taken a DNA test proving that he’s the boy’s father, according to a new report from TMZ, which totally contradict Pusha T’s “deadbeat” dad claims.

Days ago, a report from TMZ emerged quoting sources close to Drake, saying that the rapper was financially supporting the baby, who was born on October 24th, 2017 (ironically Drake’s own birthday), while he awaits a paternity test.

However, a new report from the gossip site claims that friends of Drake’s alleged former porn star baby mama Sophie Brussaux say that Drake has already taken the DNA test, which confirmed that he is, indeed, the father of the 7-month-old baby.

Sources connected to Sophie tell TMZ … Drizzy wasn’t present when she gave birth, but he’s been actively involved since a paternity test confirmed he’s the father.

Our Drake sources say no paternity test has been taken yet … but Sophie has a different story. We’re told Drake met his alleged son, Adonis, shortly after the test and has seen him multiple times.

TMZ’s sources add that Drake has flown Sophie and Adonis to be with him, and the Grammy-winning rapper even charted a private jet for his son and baby mama on Christmas. See the photo below, taken on Christmas Eve, for proof:

Pusha T accused Drake of being a deadbeat dad in his diss track against the Candian rapper called “The Story of Adidon,” but if these TMZ reports are true, it sounds like he’s doing his part as a father … he just hasn’t publicly acknowledged the kid yet.

Eva Marcille Is Now a Full Time Peach-Holding “RHOA” Cast Member (Report)

Amid reports that Kenya Moore and Sheree Whitfield have lost their Real Housewives of Atlanta peaches comes news that a friend of the show has officially snagged a peach of her own, and you may (or may not) be able to guess who it is.

Is it longtime “friend” Marlo Hampton? Or what about new “friend” Shamea Morton?

According to The Jasmine Brand, it’s neither one of the two aforementioned RHOA friends. It’s …

EVA MARCILLE!

Yes, you read that right, Eva Marcille will be an official peach-holding cast member for the upcoming 11th season of Real Housewives of Atlanta.

TJB reports:

Last season, Eva was a friend to the show and was introduced to the RHOA group via NeNe Leakes.

Sources tell us that it’s likely her storyline for the upcoming season will revolve around her being a new mom again (she and fiancee Michael Sterling welcomed a baby boy last month).

We’re also told it’s highly likely that viewers will watch her prepare to walk down the aisle with Michael.

Eva and Atlanta-based attorney Michael Sterling became engaged back in December 2017, and their son, Michael Sterling Jr., was born on April 13, 2018.

Eva also has a daughter named Marley (born January 2014) from her previous relationship with singer-songwriter Kevin McCall. Eva and Kevin broke up in 2014 and Marcille has stated that she has sole custody of their daughter.

Of course, Eva isn’t new to the world of reality TV. In addition to her appearances on RHOA Season 10, she was a cast member on Oxygen’s reality show Girlfriend Confidential: LA, and in 2017, she competed in the inaugural season of VH1’s Scared Famous. She was also a co-star on BET’s About the Business.

As an actress, Eva has also appeared on shows like The Young and the Restless, Smallville, Let’s Stay Together, House of Payne and BET’s The Real Husbands of Hollywood. She also has a few movie credits under her belt—2006’s “Crossover” and 2007’s “I Think I Love My Wife.”

Eva Marcille started her Hollywood career at the age of 19 by winning the third cycle of America’s Next Top Model in 2004.

Is This Reality Star Faking Her Pregnancy for a Storyline?

The word on the curb is that a famous reality star of a very popular reality series is being accused of faking her pregnancy to solidify her spot on the show’s upcoming season.

Guess you gotta secure that bag by any means possible, right?

From Blind Gossip:

This reality star did not think she was going to get picked up for another season of her reality show, so she decided to add some drama… by getting pregnant!

Only… she’s not actually pregnant.

“There might be a baby somewhere, but it sure wasn’t in her uterus a few weeks ago!”

Wasn’t this same reality star also involved in a fake engagement or a fake marriage at some point? Guess we really shouldn’t be too surprised if this pregnancy turns out to be fake as well. Her repeated staging of life events is disturbing, though. We don’t know what’s twirling around in that girl’s head!

By the way, this is not about Khloe with a K, who is a faker on a whole different level. Perhaps Khloe can send the other reality star one of her “home-baked pies” as a gift of congratulations?
