Music Exec Pierre “Pee” Thomas & Ex Lira Galore In Nasty Child Custody Case Over Daughter

Lira Galore has asked a judge to throw the book at her daughter’s father Pee Thomas after he mounted a low blow attack against her on Instagram.

Galore said in court papers that her baby’s father’s extraordinary online tirade directed at her Dec. 17 – where he accused her of abusing cocaine while pregnant and cheating on him – violated a court order in their current custody battle over their baby girl Khaleesi, who was born earlier this year.

Thomas posted screenshots purported to be text messages between the pair, a photo of Galore’s nearly naked body amid his claims that the case was nothing but a money grab.

The mom of one said Thomas’ posts were false, libelous and illustrate how immature and prone to impulsive actions he is, according to court papers obtained by BOSSIP. She said the posts also violate a court order – that Thomas insisted on – that each side be barred from discussing the case on social media.

She’s asked the judge in the case to fine him $10,000 and jail him for 20 days, according to court papers obtained by BOSSIP.

Galore said the “hysterical fury” that prompted him to air their dirty laundry on social media was the same thing that prompted him to allegedly assault her while she was pregnant with their baby. She said that Thomas’ social media posts were designed to take the focus off of her allegations that he “severely beat” her during her pregnancy.

“Petitioner’s conduct was intentional, shameful, reprehensible and completely contrary to the well-being and best interests of the parties’ daughter,” Galore’s paperwork states.

She wants a special hearing on Thomas’ social media posts, as well as for him to face jail and fines for violating a court order not to discuss the case.

Thomas has not responded to Galore’s motion but has deleted all of his Instagram posts, including the posts in question.

 

Lira Galore Denies Pee Thomas’ Drug & Abuse Claims; Calls Him An Instagram Dad Who Hit His Own Mother (Exclusive Details)

Social Media Star Calls Baby’s Dad Pee Thomas A “Dangerous Individual” Who Was Violent To His Own Mom

Lira Galore has fired back at Pee Thomas’ claims that she beat him up and abused drugs while she was pregnant – saying that Thomas is a violent man who will put their baby in danger if he’s allowed access to her.

The model and social media star said her former lover Thomas – the CEO of Quality Control Music – was a “dangerous individual” whose home was the location of a shootout between armed staff and intruders the day after the pair left for Miami, according to court papers obtained by BOSSIP. Thomas later boasted about the incident on social media, showing off bullet holes in his kitchen and bragging that the intruders were lucky to be alive, according to Galore’s legal papers, which were obtained by BOSSIP.

Galore also doubled down on her claims that Thomas was physically and emotionally abusive to her during her pregnancy with their daughter, Khaleesi, and said he’d hit his own mother and two other baby mamas – although she didn’t get into specifics.

Galore also accused Thomas of being an Instagram dad to his five children, and always had another woman looking after his brood when they were in his care.

The pair are in the midst of a messy lawsuit over child support and custody of their baby daughter, who was born earlier this year.

Galore was responding to Thomas’ allegations that she attacked him – often while high on different drugs – during their relationship. She said she never used drugs while she was pregnant or abused him, and demanded that he provide proof of his claims.

She’s asked a judge to force Thomas to pay her $15 million.

And besides money damages, Galore wants a judge force Thomas to get a psych evaluation before having visitation with Khaleesi and wants a restraining order that would keep him at least 100 feet away from her. She also wants child support and for Thomas to return a 2018 Land Rover she said he gifted her and then took away following an argument.

A judge hasn’t yet ruled on the case.

Quality Control’s “P” Tried To Gag Baby Mama Lira Galore Over Domestic Violence Claims – Said It Would Ruin His Career (Exclusive)

Record Label Head & Social Media Star Fighting Over Access To Baby Daughter

The music label CEO who is battling baby mama Lira Galore over custody and child support for their baby daughter unsuccessfully tried to silence her claims that he beat her up while she was pregnant.

Lawyers for Pierre “P” Thomas filed court papers asking a judge to seal Galore’s allegations that he pummeled her during most of her pregnancy, leaving her bruised, with a knot on her forehead and a dislocated finger, according to court papers obtained by BOSSIP.

But social media star Galore fired back, calling Thomas’ attempts to muzzle her as a “miserable attempt to keep (Galore) from pursuing her valid claims against him.”

Thomas argued that Galore’s legal filing was “replete with inaccuracies” and contained accusations that would hurt his brand and career that he’d “built over the last few decades,” the music exec’s court papers state. Specifically, Thomas said he was concerned that she would use the case to launch a “smear campaign” against him to her more than four million social media followers.

Thomas – whose label “Quality Control Music” counts Migos, Da Baby and Cardi B on its books – also said Galore’s charges would harm the baby, subjecting her to “infamy, disgrace and public contempt” if Galore’s legal filing was made public.

He filed his motion for a gag order on the case the same day that Galore filed her answer and counterclaim, which detailed the alleged abuse she suffered while carrying the baby.

However, Galore responded in her own legal filing, accusing Thomas of trying to squash both her and the public’s first amendment rights by trying to block her from releasing her account in court. The mom of one said she tried to settle the matter out of court, but he didn’t respond.

Galore also said that they already have a court order barring her from discussing the case on social media, and she’s abided by it.

Thomas sued Galore earlier this year for access to their baby daughter, Khaleesi, who was born in 2019.

A judge has yet to rule on the case.

Future Trying To Settle Child Support Lawsuit With Alleged Baby Mama Out Of Court (Exclusive)

Rapper Sued By Two Women For Fathering Their Babies

Future is working behind the scenes to settle at least one paternity and child support case after two women say they bore his children earlier this year, BOSSIP can reveal.

The rapper’s legal team is trying to negotiate an out of court deal on his behalf instead of going to trial in order to avoid having details about his sex life and other personal revelations being made public, a source with direct knowledge of the situation told BOSSIP.

Future has offered at least one of his alleged baby mamas a lump sum and child support in exchange for signing a confidentiality agreement – but the woman does not want to be barred from speaking out about the case or her relationship with him, our source says. Future’s lawyer did not respond to a request for comment.

The news comes as the two women suing him, Eliza Reign and Cindy Parker, have had their legal cases against him brought to a virtual standstill.

Reign sued Future in August 2019, alleging that he was the father of her baby girl, Reign, who was born in April. She said that Future has never met her daughter, but she wants the baby to have a relationship with him if he acts in the child’s best interest, her complaint states. Reign’s attorney declined to comment because the case was ongoing.

And in October, Parker sued Future for allegedly siring her son, Legend, before abandoning her. Parker’s lawyer didn’t return BOSSIP’s request for comment.

The rapper’s reticence to air his dirty laundry in public is evident in Reign’s case against him, where he’s asked for a gag order because he’s concerned that worried that “false and baseless allegations” will be leaked to the media and the public, according to court papers obtained by BOSSIP. A judge was supposed to rule on the gag order last month, but the hearing was canceled at the last minute.

Future, who is now reportedly in a relationship with Steve Harvey’s stepdaughter, Lori, hasn’t commented on the controversy, other than to drop the song “Last Name,” where he berates a woman for “stealing” his last name after having his baby despite him barely knowing her.

LHHATL’s Tammy Rivera Accuses Interior Designer Of Walking Away With Her $52K Deposit – Company Sues Her For Cyberbullying (Exclusive)

Reality Star Sued Interior Design Firm For Fraud; Company Countersues Her For Trashing Their Name Online

“Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta’s” Tammy Rivera has accused a celebrity interior design firm of conning her out of a $52,000 deposit for work on her home.

But the firm didn’t take the claims lying down and countersued her for defamation and libel after she took to social media to trash the business when the deal went bad, court papers show.

Rivera sued D&A Designs over the summer for breach of contract, unjust enrichment, and fraud, alleging the design company took a $52,000 deposit but never did any of the work or delivered any of the furniture.

However little more than a week after Rivera filed suit, D&A Designs slapped her with a libel and defamation suit in federal court, contending that she defamed the company by creating Instagram posts blasting D&A Designs for stealing from her and telling her “nothing but lies,” the company said in court papers obtained by BOSSIP.

Rivera also posted a picture of the company co-owner Dereky Martin Hagler as well as their phone number, and Hagler said the company has received death threats, court papers state. The company said Rivera’s alleged actions cost them more than $1 million in business as well as severe emotional distress. The posts in question appear to have been deleted from Rivera’s Instagram.

D&A Designs admitted that Rivera contracted them for $105,500 interior design work on her home – including designing a basement powder room, painting work and chair upgrades that they said were finished before the completion date. But it contended that Rivera kept asking for additional work, which lengthened the project’s completion date.

The company also said that Rivera was supposed to hand over an $84,060 check – but only gave them $52,000, but they began the work anyway. Rivera also failed to make subsequent payments for the project, their court papers state.

It’s not clear how the relationship broke down or what became of Rivera’s $52,000. However D&A Designs said in its complaint that the project involved customized wallpaper and furniture that was not returnable once the work began.

Rivera, who is married to her “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” co-star Waka Flocka, is set to give a deposition on the case Dec. 11. Her lawyer declined to comment when reached by BOSSIP. D&A Designs’ attorney also declined to comment and referred a reporter to the court papers.

The company, which has worked with Mona Scott-Young and designed Yandy Smith-Harris’ office space wants Rivera to remove the offending posts, be barred from posting anything about the company and pay punitive damages of at least $75,000.

RHOP’s Eva Marcille Says Ex-Kevin McCall Blew His Chance To Bring Custody Case – Wants It Dismissed (Exclusive)

Kevin McCall Sued Baby Mama Eva Marcille Over Custody Of Daughter

Kevin McCall has blown his chance to proceed with his custody and child support case against baby mama Eva Marcille.

That’s according to the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star, who filed papers Dec. 10 asking a judge to issue a court order throwing McCall’s custody bid after he apparently ignored last week’s deadline to respond to Marcille’s motion to dismiss his case, BOSSIP can reveal.

Marcille said in court papers obtained by BOSSIP that besides McCall’s failure to respond, the L.A. courts have jurisdiction on the case, not Atlanta. The mom of three said they already have a court order on custody in California, which permanently bars McCall from being around Marcille or his daughter.

McCall never responded to Marcille’s motion to dismiss his case – possibly because his celebrity lawyer abruptly abandoned him on the case late last month, citing an existing conflict of interest.

McCall sued Marcille for joint physical custody of their daughter Marley Rae, five, and asked the judge to force Sterling to pay him child support when the girl is in his care, the suit, obtained by BOSSIP, states.

But Marcille fired back, asking that the case be dismissed and alleged that McCall was a violent deadbeat dad who abused her throughout her pregnancy and has never financially supported the child.

Marcille wants the judge to dismiss the case with prejudice so that McCall can’t sue her again. A judge hasn’t yet ruled on the case.

Andretta Smothers Inks Deal With Daughter’s Father Gervonta Davis

Boxer Gervonta Davis has agreed to pay $10,000 a month in child support to his baby mama after she accused him of requesting “seductive favors” in exchange for money for the child’s care.

Last week a judge approved a settlement between the two-time world champion boxer and his daughter’s mother Andretta Smothers, where they cut a deal on the child support amount and agreed that the stay at home mom would get primary custody while Davis would parent 15 percent of the time, court papers show.

The 25-year-old Baltimore native -who is set to fight Cuba’s Yuriorkis Gamboa for the WBA’s secondary lightweight title in Atlanta later this month – also agreed to pay for the child’s daycare and school tuition, but the pair would split health care and extracurricular costs, according to the final order, which was obtained by BOSSIP.

We exclusively revealed that Smothers sued Davis over support and custody of the tot, and sensationally accused the Floyd Mayweather protege of insisting on “seductive favors” in exchange for supporting their daughter, according to her lawsuit, which was obtained by BOSSIP. Smothers said in court papers that she was fed up with the arrangement and filed suit. Davis has denied Smothers’ sex claims.

Smothers has said in court papers that she’d been unemployed since the baby was born, and Davis had been supporting her and the baby. A judge legally declared Davis as the Gervanni’s father back in September.

We’ve reached out lawyers for both Smothers and Davis for comment.

Dwight Howard’s Assault Accuser Pleads With Judge Not To Dismiss Case (Exclusive)

Masin Elije Says Dwight Howard Threatened & Harassed Him Over Alleged Relationship

The social media star who sued Dwight Howard for assault and more after he said their alleged relationship went sour has pleaded with a judge not to throw the case out.

Just weeks after Howard accused Masin Elije of not responding to the case, Elije filed court papers that certify he handed over evidence that proved their alleged relationship to Howard so that the case can go to trial.

He also filed the motion that he says proves that he has served the NBA star with the lawsuit, something Howard alleged that he never did. According to court papers obtained by BOSSIP, Elije said he’d been trying to serve Howard with his lawsuit for more than six months and believed Howard was purposely evading his service attempts. However, Elije said he hired a special process server who eventually tracked Howard down.

Elije, who recently authored the novel, “Industry Hoe,” also filed paperwork showing that he’s complying with Howard’s demand for evidence, countering Howard’s contention that Elije has stopped responding to the case.

Simply put, Elije wants the case to move forward and have his day in court.

We exclusively revealed that Elije sued Howard earlier this year for alleging that Howard began harassing and threatening him online and by phone when he refused Howard’s request to sign a nondisclosure agreement about an alleged relationship.

Elije also made explosive claims that Howard “was in everyone raw” at “transgender sex parties,” and that he had an “understanding” with a “transgender prostitute,” according to court papers obtained by BOSSIP.

Howard countersued Elije for $10 million, saying he doesn’t know him and accused him of trying to use Howard for social media clout and to drum up support for the book “Industry Hoe.” He said he’s suffered “severe emotional distress,” physical and mental harm as a result of Elije’s claims, his legal docs state.

A judge has yet to rule on the case.

IRS Hits Lil Kim With $60K Tax Lien Just Months After Bankruptcy (Exclusive)

Queen Bee Facing Fresh Round Of Financial Troubles

Lil Kim has had a successful year settling her finances.

A judge recently approved her plan to get out of bankruptcy after she admitted she owed millions to various creditors. And the deal helped her save her $3 million mansion from foreclosure and a Sheriff’s auction.

However the “All About The Benjamins” rapper – who is now in the midst of a career upswing – isn’t out of the woods yet, at least as far as the IRS is concerned.

That’s because the federal tax entity has just hit the Queen Bee for a tax lien for nearly $60,000, BOSSIP has learned.

The feds say Kim – who was born Kimberly Jones – owes them a total of $58,227.40 for income she made in 2005, according to the lien, which was filed last month and obtained by BOSSIP.

This latest lien is the fourth in as many years, documents show. In 2015, the IRS alleged she owed $125,805 after she failed to pay taxes from 2010 through 2013. Then in January 2018, the feds accused her of not paying $211,529 on what she made in 2016.

Then just three months later in April 2018, Uncle Sam filed another tax lien against Kim, this time for her income $188,016 for money she brought in in 2006, her liens, which were obtained by BOSSIP, state.

Lil Kim has not yet responded to the latest lien. And it was unclear Wednesday whether she’d paid any of the previous tax debts.

We’ve reached out to Lil Kim’s lawyer for comment.

Billy Porter Reveals How Charity Saved Him “From The Precipice Of Obscurity” For “Giving Tuesday”

“Pose” Actor & Director Promotes PayPal’s ‘Give Better’ Campaign

Billy Porter is encouraging everyone to embrace the spirit of giving during the holiday season.

“You can give in all different kinds of ways,” Porter told us by phone from Los Angeles. “It’s not just money. You can volunteer your time. You can be a mentor for a young child. You can stop by a food bank and donate some cans. You can donate some of them clothes you ain’t wearing no more.”

The actor and singer partnered with PayPal’s “Give Better” campaign, an initiative urging the public to donate, volunteer and support small businesses. We spoke to the veteran thespian about his favorite charities and what it was like becoming a leading man at the tender age of 50:

BOSSIP: What inspired you to partner with PayPal for “Giving Tuesday”?
Billy Porter: “PayPal reached out and asked me to be part of this initiative. I’d never heard of it before. They’ve been involved since about 2012, and this year, it was one Tuesday, and now we’re trying to spark every Tuesday of the giving season. And also use this moment as a springboard to ignite the spirit of giving inside each of us year-round. We have to start thinking about giving year-round. And giving isn’t just about money – although PayPal will match every donation you make by 10 percent. That is not the only way to give.”

BOSSIP: Are there charities that you are particularly passionate about?
Billy Porter: “There are two that I’m deeply connected to. When I came out in 1985, and we went straight to the front lines to fight for our lives and I went to Broadway and was introduced to Broadway Cares Equity Fights AIDS and The Actors Fund of America, and those two organizations really taught me what activism really meant and how to get involved and how to make it a daily walk of life. The Actors Fund, in particular, they’ve been around for 137 years and their mission is to make sure artists are taken care of for the entirety of their lives. And as you know we’re freelance people, and it can be tenuous sometimes. They really came through for me in my low times. I had a good decade or more where I wasn’t really working, and I was on the precipice of obscurity. It wasn’t good, bankruptcy and all of those things and they stepped in and helped with rent, they helped with utility bills and medical bills and social services. They really really helped me. And fast forward to a couple of years ago, my mother, who is disabled, is living in The Actor’s Fund nursing home in New Jersey. They’re really dear to my heart.”

BOSSIP: Tells us about your thought process in shooting the intimate scenes between Ricky and Pray Tell in “Pose.”
Billy Porter: “I’ve been a character actor all my life, and I’ve never been the object of anyone’s affections in anything ever in my 30-year career until last year. It blew my mind. It shocked me. I signed my nudity clause as a character actor – and I came out on the other side as a leading man!”

Gervonta Davis’ Baby Mama Demands $10K A Month Following “Sex For Child Support” Allegations (Exclusive)

Gervonta Davis & Andretta Smothers In Suit Over Baby Daughter

The stay at home mom who accused champion boxer Gervonta Davis of demanding sexual encounters in exchange for child support said she wants $10,000 a month to support their baby girl.

Andretta Smothers filed court papers this week demanding Davis hand over $10,000 a month for baby Gervanni Davis, who was born in 2018, according to court papers obtained by BOSSIP. Although state guidelines place Davis’ child support amount closer to $2,200, Smothers said in legal docs that Davis was a high-income earner who pulled in $156,000 a month, which was more than enough to support the baby in the lifestyle that they’d become accustomed to.

Smothers said she’d been unemployed since the baby was born, and Davis has been unofficially supporting her and the baby. A judge legally declared Davis as the Gervanni’s father back in September.

Smothers said in court papers that she was fed up with the arrangement and filed suit. Davis has denied Smothers’ sex claims in court papers.

Davis has not responded to Smothers’ child support request. But on a more positive note, the pair agreed to a parenting plan where both sides would have joint custody of the baby with Smothers having primary physical custody.

Smothers acknowledged Davis’ career in boxing made it difficult to see the baby consistently, but they both agreed that he could spend time with her whenever he came to Georgia – where Smothers and the baby live – as long as it doesn’t interfere with the child’s schooling or extracurricular activities.
