He says, “The goal of being a mogul is a real one.  I want to be a billionaire . . . I’m 38. By the time I’m 45, you guys are going to be telling a completely different story.”

Logic Wants The Divorce, But There’s A Prenup

  • 6:26 am Wednesday, March 21st, 2018 by Estee

You may have already heard the news about Logic and his wife Jessica calling it quits after two years of marriage, but the reason…

He just wants to be single.

He became very distant from Jessica after the success of his track “1-800-273-8255” last year and started spending much less time at home.

After they showed up at the Grammys together in January, Jessica came home and found Logic waiting for her … to tell her he wanted a divorce.

Logic and Jessica have a prenup, which entitles her to a payout, but she won’t get their house or car.

She’s no longer living with him [More]

Blue Ivy is only 6, but she’s already making business deals

  • 7:10 am Monday, March 19th, 2018 by Estee

Beyonce and Jay Z took Blue to the Wearable Art Gala Saturday night in L.A. Grandma Tina Knowles put the event together to raise money for a new non-profit performance complex.

A piece of art must have caught Blue Ivy’s eye because she held up her little sign and threw down a $19k bid.

It looks like Jay wasn’t into the piece though, because he tried to gently put his daughter’s hand down.  Even if she scored the piece, we’re guessing Jay and Bey could afford it.
