Exclusive Couple Alert: Al Sharpton & Lisa Raye?!

Posted by on Sep 29, 2009 in Celebrity Couples, Celebrity Sightings, Juicy Gossip, Rumor Control | 5 comments

If you follow my tweets, then you will know that I broke this story about a month ago that Lisa Raye and Al Sharpton were “together”. I received a tip via Facebook labor day weekend, and all I could do is laugh. Check the screen caps below:

There was no way this rumor could be true, right? Well The YBF has also learned the same information, and now I’m starting to wonder. We had fun on twitter, trying to figure out what this couple had in common. Other than media hogs, we all agreed on “perms”…LOL! I still can’t believe it.

The YBF has learned that actress Lisa Raye and political figure Reverend Al Sharpton has been dating for months now. The celebrity blog site was informed by a major publicist (who would like to remain nameless) that the couple who are both pending divorces are indeed a couple.

The source even went on to say that Lisa is media hungry and wants to be with someone who can get her in high  society and political  events. As for Al, who may just be looking for an arm piece.

Hey, if the shoe fits. SMH.

16 year old honor student Derrion Albert was beaten to death Thursday afternoon when trying to help a fellow student when a gang fight broke out.

Workers from a local community center rushed to assist Derrion when he failed to get up after the attack. Unfortunately it was too late. He suffered a fatal bash to the head.

This is absolutely no words for what happened here. It is such a shame. A young man with a bright future in the wrong place at the wrong time. Rest in peace Derrion.

Woman To Woman: Swizz’s Ex-wife MaShonda To Alicia Keys

alicia keys Woman To Woman: Swizzs Ex wife MaShonda To Alicia Keys[NY Daily News]

Swizz Beatz soon to be ex-wife Mashonda sure had a lot to say when she eyed a tweet from @aliciakeys talking about love via twitter and couldn’t resist replying using twitlonger.

After having a great evening with my son and enjoying some fun twit chat, I decided to sign off and get some work done. However, a few hours later I was advised that I should check @aliciakeys twit page. I’ve never reached out to her on twitter before. I feel our issues are a lot more serious than a website conversation. Not to mention that I’ve reached out to her many times in the beginning of this whole thing, as any wife would do. Unfortunately, I never succeeded in getting a response. The 1st time I meet AK, my husband introduced us to each other at an event. ( I have no choice but to call him my husband, until he is not anymore) In the messages that I sent to her (AK), I made it very clear that on the contrary of what she might be hearing, I am still married to my husband, living with him and just had a child. Its been two years and I still have not received a response. What I do receive, is constant displays of selfishness and disconcern to me and my son.

I was a fan of AK’s last album, we were both signed to J Records and I always checked up on her projects. I sang her songs and admired her for creating Superwoman and Karma, I would never deny her, her talent. I believed in her until I found out she was possibly sleeping with my husband. The affair was denied by both, until it was finally admitted months later.

Already I can hear some of you saying ” why are u blaming her, You cant make someone leave their wife, You cant break something thats broken”. Well, my marriage was not broken, as far as I knew we were celebrating our sons birth and getting ready to celebrate our 5 year wedding anniversary . Call it blind love, whatever. I call it being a devoted wife.. As far as me blaming her and not blaming him, thats false. Me and my husband have worked out our differences. We are in a good place as people and as parents. I accept his choices and I am comfortable enough with myself to move on. I am so very blessed in many ways.

My concern with AK is no longer the fact that she assisted in destroying a family but that she has the audacity to make these selfish comments about love and wanting to be with someone, even after knowing their situation. How is this the same Superwoman that I sang out loud with in my truck? I ask myself sometimes.

If you are reading this Alicia, let me start by saying, you know what you did. You know the role you played and you know how you contributed to the ending of my marriage. You know that I asked you to step back and let me handle my family issues. Issues that you helped to create.
Im not saying everything was perfect all the time but no relationship is perfect. We made a vow to God and I believe you should have respected that, as a woman. I know you owe me or my son nothing but I just wish you would’ve handled things more carefully. I’m not judging you, I put you and the whole situation in the hands of God, the Higher Power. Just know that as a woman, I expected so much more from you. I never had intentions on reaching out to you this way but after reading your twits tonight, and the constant disregard, you left me no choice. I feel that after 1 and a half years of you hiding this affair and acting like it doesnt exist, that now is the time to confront it, since you talk so openly about it now

This is not a publicity stunt, I dont have a record coming out. I just need to close this chapter in my life and that means confronting our issues. There is a small child involved. His dad loves him to death and he wants to spend more time with him but hes afraid because he knows we don’t have a relationship. This is my main concern. My son NEEDS his dad and I NEED to be comfortable with you. For him!

I know many will see my point and many will not be able to look into what’s real because they only want to see Alicia Keys the celebrity, not the human. This is not for the “people”, this is for you. Like I said I was left no choice but to reach out to you this way. By now, Im sure you want to find a balance in this as well.

I read your tweets tonight and I felt they were very insensitive. You have no idea how much pain I was caused because of this affair. Its baffling to me that you don’t understand what I might have gone through with this situation. I dont consider myself a victim anymore, Ive learned alot from this! I just ask you to try and be a bit more realistic and delicate to the situation, at least until my divorce is final. I felt me attending the party would have been a starting point for us, since you shook my hand after I offered it, but I suppose I was wrong.

If its so, that you and my husband are meant to be together, then God bless you both and I hope you never have to deal with what I did. I would not wish it on my worst enemy. If you two being together forever is the case, its more of a reason for us to get along, because I’m not going anywhere. Theres a child to be raised.

To answer your tweet, choose smart over spark. Sparks burn everyone, be smart! Its simple actually, just think of the shoe being on the other foot.

Stay blessed and lets work this thing out with respect and dignity.

I do not think  it was a very smart move to address Alicia via the net, but I must say it was very eloquently written. She has made some great points here but Mashonda may have to come to terms with the demise of her marriage and it is Alicia’s will to express her emotions, whether it involves the person she is currently dating or not. As for whether Alicia knew Mashonda and Swizz’s relationship was still on going when she came into the picture is definitely something they need to settle in a private forum and one a public one.

Best wishes to all parties involved.
