Motley Crue Drummer Tommy Lee Marries Brittany Furlan: ‘We Did It!’

Mr. and Mrs! Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee and actress Brittany Furlan tied the knot on Thursday, February 14.

“It’s official!!!! We’re married!!!” the bride announced on Instagram alongside a photo of two dogs in wedding attire. “MR & MRS LEE YAHOOOOOOOO.”

The American Meme star, 32, gushed about her wedding gown ahead of her big day. “Only bummer about my dress for tomorrow is that it doesn’t have any pockets for snacks,” she joked on Twitter on Wednesday, February 13.

Two days prior, she marveled at her fate, tweeting, “I can’t believe I went from the most depressed, lonely girl, thinking I would die alone with my dogs, to getting married in 4 days … wow … life is a trip.”

The musician, 56, and the former Vine sensation were first spotted together in June 2017. Eight months later, they were engaged.

Lee announced their big news on Instagram on Valentine’s Day 2018 with a video that showed him holding his fiancée’s hand as she showed off her new heart-shaped diamond. 

“Well this certainly beats chocolates!” he wrote at the time, adding,“Say hello the future Mrs. Lee.”

Furlan also raved about her husband-to-be: “Best day of my life!!!! I can’t wait to get to spend forever with my best friend #engaged,” she wrote on Twitter.

The couple punked fans in May when the rocker posted an Instagram photo of himself kissing his bride-to-be while standing beneath a makeshift altar in matching robes and slippers. “Did it, I do A LOT,” he wrote at the time.

Their journey to the aisle was far more traditional, however: Furlan shared photos from her bridal shower with friends, including Lee’s bandmate Nikki Sixx’s wife, Courtney Sixx, on Instagram in January.

“I thought I was going to die alone with my corpse being found chewed on by my 3,000 dogs and now I’m here,” she joked.

Lee was previously married to Elaine Bergen from 1984 to 1985, Heather Locklear from 1986 to 1993 and Pamela Anderson from 1995 to 1998.

Black Enterprise Founder: ‘We Owe An Apology to Martin Luther King, Jr.’

Decades after his death, the legacy and contributions of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and the sacrifices he made to bring justice to African Americans and to challenge America to live up to its ideals, are being celebrated more than ever before. It’s fair to say that we have done justice to King’s memory. But the truth is America has not done justice to his dream. In fact, I, and the rest of King’s generation, now between the ages of 70 and 85, owe King an apology.

Due to our lack of leadership and accountability, and despite the conspicuous success of a minority of African Americans, we have failed to do what it takes to lead our people to the promised land of freedom, equality, and the full measure of the American dream.

Two months after the assassination of Dr. King, Earl G. Graves Sr. escorts Mrs. Coretta Scott King on June 8th, 1968 to the funeral of Senator Robert F. Kennedy.

King’s dream was about equal opportunity and economic justice for all black Americans, not just an exceptional few. After making progress toward those goals into the late ’80s, we somehow lost our desire to pursue King’s agenda. Ultimately, we simply stopped fighting, as if we no longer believed that what King died for was worth continuing to sacrifice and fight for. And for that, Dr. King, I am sorry. You left us with an example and a challenge to make a better world for our children. And we’ve failed you.

The evidence shows that our failure is as complete as it is indisputable. Nearly 60 years after Brown v. Board of Education, American education remains largely segregated by race, with black children bearing the brunt of failing public schools. We’re failing King in economic justice. Today, the wealth gap between African Americans and white Americans is wider than ever, and black businesses remain largely excluded from economic power centers–from Hollywood and Silicon Valley to Wall Street and Madison Avenue.

The quality of life for African Americans in our urban centers has hardly improved, and in many cases, has worsened, since many urban areas were destroyed by riots in the aftermath of King’s assassination. Sadly, in nearly every area, from healthcare outcomes to high school drop-out rates to entire generations of African Americans trapped in our prison system, the world we’re leaving to our children and grandchildren is no better than the one we inherited.

I was assigned by Sen. Robert Kennedy to assist Coretta Scott King with getting her slain husband’s body from Memphis to Atlanta. I know intimately the ultimate sacrifice that King made–based on the promise of future generations–so that we would have the opportunities that we enjoy today. It’s a promise we have failed to keep.

Our fight for freedom and justice is not over. We have not won. Memorials aside, my generation owes an apology to King for having dropped the baton, for not taking the torch he lit and running with it. Now, it is up to our children and grandchildren to continue the fight to ensure that King’s dream is deferred no longer, and that all African Americans, not just a select, privileged, or fortunate few, reach the promised land of freedom, equality, justice, and opportunity.

Trina Braxton Posts a Tribute to Late Husband Gabe Solis: ‘We Grieve His Unexpected Departure’ [Photo]

Trina Braxton is speaking out for the first time since ex-husband Gabe Solis passed away due to cancer.

According to Trina, news of Gabe’s passing leaked before those closest to him knew and some of his family found out via social media — for which she apologizes.

“Unfortunately, someone leaked the story before we could make everyone aware of his passing, and I apologize to those friends and family members for finding out through social outlets.”

Take a look:

On December 20, 2018, a chapter permanently closed for my sons and I. For over 16 years, Gabe Solis was an essential part of our lives. Like all families, there are good and bad moments that are endured, but those moments, good or bad still made us who we are in the present. Unfortunately, someone leaked the story before we could make everyone aware of his passing, and I apologize to those friends and family members for finding out through social outlets. I also apologize directly to the Solis Family. I do humbly ask for your prayers for our families, but my greatest request is that when you are posting comments, remember Gabe’s passing is a loss for our family. He was a father to my boys, a son, brother, and friend to many and I would appreciate privacy and respect as we grieve his unexpected departure. @gabe_solis1234 I miss you, my dear friend.

Draymond Green reportedly told Kevin Durant: ‘We don’t need you. We won without you. Leave’

Draymond Green got into an argument with Kevin Durant so feisty, it caused a Warriors player to predict Durant will now leave Golden State in free agency next summer. Green blurted to Durant something along the lines of, “We don’t need you. When Green and Durant bickered last year in a similar, though less heated, incident, it was claimed Green was using “reverse psychology” to motivate Durant.

NYPD Detective Told Weinstein’s Alleged Victim to Delete Messages: ‘We Just Won’t Tell’ D.A.

Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast

The former lead detective in the Harvey Weinstein sexual-assault investigation told a woman who accused the movie mogul of rape to delete messages and data from multiple cell phones before giving them to prosecutors, according the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office.

The alleged victim did not delete the messages and alerted her attorney because she felt uncomfortable with the request, according to a letter the D.A.’s office was required to send Weinstein’s attorney and file in court. The letter was released publicly on Wednesday afternoon.

The woman, identified only as “Complainant 2,” is the subject behind three of the mogul’s five counts of sex-related offenses: predatory sexual assault, rape in the first degree, and rape in the third degree. Her accusations stem from an incident that allegedly took place in Weinstein’s hotel room in Manhattan on March 18, 2013.

BE MODERN MAN GREG TILLERY

Name: Gregoire Tillery 

Age: 31 years old

Profession: CEO of WeDat’s Chicken and Shrimp 

One Word That Describes You: Passionate 

Social Media handles: Instagram: @Wedatfoodtruck_ Facebook: @Wedatfoodtruckllc

What does being one of the BEMM 100 Men of Distinction mean to you?

Being recognized as one of the 100 BEMM Man of Distinction feels amazing to me. Being a part of this platform is huge and I feel humbled to be chosen. I appreciate the acknowledgment.  For me to stand with other men that are dedicated to be the difference in their community and industries is an absolute honor.

What are some examples of how you turned struggle into success?

My early life was filled with struggle. I was raised in the 7th Ward of New Orleans and it often times feels as if I’ve been continually backed into a corner for most of my life. Being in poverty and having grown up with a single mother, who worked two jobs to support our family, helped me understand that I had to work hard to support my family. I took the approach that wasn’t traditional for how I grew up. I decided to attend Tuskegee University, and went on to work in corporate America.  I was inspired to start a food truck after watching “Food Truck Wars” on Food Network and received confirmation from God to take the leap of faith. I took all the money I had and invested it in that food truck and had countless setbacks. I often worked on the food truck with no AC and it often broke down. Sometimes I didn’t have anyone in line at my food truck, but alongside me the longest lines would form for other food trucks. I often felt crazy for starting the food truck, but something in me told me to keep going and stay the course. I eventually started to gain a following in the city and via social media through people in my city like Supa Cent shouting me out and my food truck being featured in Tokyo Vanity’s “Best Friend” video. It was a pivotal moment in my entrepreneurial journey, and as more people started to support I became known best for my wings, but most importantly for providing top notch customer service to every single customer. I’m grateful for the struggle and the journey to now having three physical locations for my restaurant, We Dat’s Chicken & Shrimp in New Orleans.

What is an important quality you look for in your relationships with others?

The closest people to me must display integrity, loyalty, honesty, and last but certainly not least be God fearing. 

What are some immediate projects you are working on?

At the moment, some of my immediate projects include opening my third restaurant location, WeDat’s, that’s going to be located at 4905 Westbank Expressway Marrero, LA 70072.  We recently launched our seasoning line that’s available at select stores and online through our website.  So make sure you guys get that!  We are also relaunching our YouTube show, “Cooking with We Dat’s,” and a host of other things.

What is the best advice you ever received?

The best advice I’ve ever received is pray through all situations. No matter what trials and tribulations, prayer will get you through. 

What is some advice you have for other men who want to make a difference?

Don’t just talk about it, be about it! “Just do it” and lead by example. Stand for something and be a man of your word.

What is your “Extraordinary Impact”? (Describe how you are making a major difference for others, in a way that distinguishes you as extraordinary in your profession and/or day-to-day life).

I love my city and wake up daily with one goal and that’s “How to make my city better and be an advocate for my great people.” Some of the most important things to me are providing jobs, feeding the homeless, community outreach, and just being an example by working hard and showing others you can also do this with hard work.
