Beyonce’s Dad ‘Mo Money Problems … Sued For $60k

Beyonce’s dad is rolling in money problems — on the heels of accusations he’s a deadbeat dad … TMZ has learned he’s being sued, ironically, by a company that used to handle his cash.

According to the legal docs … a credit bureau is trying to collect $64,587.14 from Mathew Knowles — money it claims he owed to an accounting firm he hired.

The firm handles finances for high-end entertainers and athletes — a world MK used to run in back when he was Beyonce’s manager.

Of course those days are long gone, and Mathew’s finances took a nose dive when Bey dumped him in 2011.

As TMZ first reported … Mathew was sued by his baby mama Alexsandra Wright last month for $24K in back child support — but he claims he was the victim of a clerical error and is actually paid up.

We reached out to Knowles … and his rep had no comment on the lawsuit.

Evelyn Lozada ENGAGED to L.A. Dodgers Star … And My Ring’s Bigger Than Gabrielle Union’s!!!

1225-evelyn-lozada-ringEvelyn Lozada got a helluva Christmas gift this morning from Dodgers star Carl Crawford … a 14.5 carat DIAMOND ENGAGEMENT RING … and sources tell TMZ the ring’s worth $1.4 MILLION!!!

Crawford — who’s in the middle of a $142 million contract — popped the question this morning … and the “Basketball Wives” star said YES!


Just like Dwyane Wade, Crawford picked up the ring from go-to celebrity jeweler Jason of Beverly Hills.

For the record, the ring Wade gave to Gabrielle Union was ONLY 8.5 carats … but size doesn’t really matter, right???

Evelyn has been married before — she tied the knot with Chad Johnson back in 2012 … but divorced him later that year after the NFL star headbutted her during an argument. Before Johnson, she was engaged to NBA star Antoine Walker (but they never married).

As for her new man, she started dating Crawford earlier this year … and Evelyn is 7 months pregnant with his child.

Niyola copy

We’ve got a long list of things to be thankful about when counting our Instagram blessings – the most important though still remains the underwear looks of some of our celebs, a few looking sexy while others, downright ratchet…

Here’s Niyola (probably in her workout mode, but who cares anyway) showing off her sexy figure…

So tell us, is she hot or hot?



PHOTOS: Chidinma stuns in ‘Cat Suit’ photoshoot

Stunning! Did someone call Catwoman?

At 23, Pop darling Chidinma Ekile is steadily shedding away that baby look and turning into a woman (or so the guys feel).

Her recent photoshoot with popular photographer Obi Somto shows a more matured side of the talented singer who’s been knocking shows in and out of the country.

From rocking the black shinny cat suit to blending the baseball jacket on trad wears, Chidinma scores a high one from us.
