Gospel music artist James Fortune revealed what he says is the root cause of his violent outbursts and the physical assault of a family member back in 2014, for which he served time in jail.
"I'm not ashamed but I'm just exposing the enemy. domestic violence is more about power and control, it's not just about physical violence," the 37-year-old singer who has been in therapy for the last 18 months revealed on Periscope, according to First Lady B blog. "I struggle with control and that's what I was dealing with. When you can't control someone, then you feel as though you are losing control."
In 2014, media reports alleged that Fortune was charged with assault of an unnamed family member in October 2014. Although Fortune's wife, Cheryl Fortune, was never confirmed as the victim of the assault that led to the singer's arrest, ABC13 reported that she suffered from broken bones and internal injuries at the time of his arrest. more >>

Kanye West believes that he can make the world a better place if only he had the resources. In his recent guesting on the "Ellen DeGeneres Show," Kim Kardashian's husband silenced the host and the audience as he delivered a sort of monologue that oozed with varying sentiments.
According to US Weekly, in his seven-minute monologue, West declared that he has ideas that can make the human race better as he is a critical thinker who cares about others. Citing that his father experienced living in homeless shelters, despite being a psychology major, and his mother being the first black female chairperson of the English department of Chicago State University, West stressed the fact that he was brought up to make a difference.
After substantiating his claim that he can make a big difference in the world, West went on venting out his sentiments on some other controversial issues, one of which was the Oscars controversy earlier this year, wherein the Academy was accused of playing blind to the talents of black actors and excluded them from its list of nominees for the second straight year. According to West, as per another US Weekly report, the showbiz industry has prevented the colored actors from excelling. more >>
