TWISB: Bobbi Kristina is “no longer on life support”, Ariana Grande and Big Sean split, Did Meek Mill pop the question to Nicki Minaj?

Bobbi Kristina is “no longer on life support”

On Saturday, some great news was shared after about three months of Bobbi Kristina Brown being in a coma.

The 22-year-old’s father, Bobby Brown, told his fans during his appearance at a Frankie Beverly concert at the Verizon Theatre in Dallas, Texas that his “baby is awake.”

According to USA Today, her aunt and Bobby’s sister, Tina Brown, created a post on her Facebook page, which is now deleted, that B.K. “woke up” and is “going to be okay.”

“So many messages,sorry can’t answer them all right now but I will get to them later..just allow me this time with my family,,yes,she woke up and is no longer on life support!!!!!:):)God is good!!thanks for your prayers,,still a process,but she is going to be ok:):):):).”

The Facebook post went live on Sunday and was shared by a friend of Tina’s, Keliah Fell, who also took to Facebook asking fans to keep Bobbi Kristina in their prayer.

According to a TMZ report, sources connected with the Houston family says that they have no idea where Bobby is getting his information, nor do they know why Tina said she’s awake and no longer on life support.

The daughter of the late Whitney Houston was first hospitalized after being found faced down and unresponsive in a bathtub at her suburban Atlanta townhome on January 31. She was relocated to an undisclosed location since she was released from Emory University Hospital in Atlanta last month.

According to the Houstons, “she’s in the exact same condition she was in when she went into the facility.” There is “minimal” reaction, an occasional eye blink, but that’s all and she is still on a ventilator.


Ariana Grande and Big Sean split

After nearly nine months of dating bliss, E! News confirmed that rapper Big Sean and singer Ariana Grande have broken up.

On Monday morning, the former lovebirds released a joint statement through their reps to their fans: “They both care deeply for each other and remain close friends.”

Later that afternoon, a source told E! News what went wrong between the two.

“They made the decision to part ways because their conflicting touring schedules would keep them apart over the next year,” the source said.

“Ariana and Big Sean have had a great relationship and they are still very close friends and will remain in each others lives. It hasn’t been easy though with both of their busy schedules lately and they know it’s going to get even harder in the next few months. This was really difficult for them to publicly call it quits but they thought it would be better this way so people know there is no bad blood between them at all.”

The “Control” rapper, 27, and the “Love Me Harder” singer, 21, confirmed that they were dating in Oct. 2014. Since then, they’ve made onstage and red carpet appearances together, as well as cute posts mentioning each other on social media.

Also, in the joint statement, the reps “kindly ask that the media respect their wish for privacy regarding this personal matter at this time.”


Did Meek Mill pop the question to Nicki Minaj?

The alleged couple have been seen together in public and over social media for a few months. And now, in recent reports, these two may have gotten secretly engaged.

On Wednesday, “The Pinkprint” rapper’s fans started to wonder if Meek Mill , 27, had proposed after she posted on Twitter of ring emojis with “I’ll post it later.”

The 32-year-old also posted a cute photo on Instagram of her and her beau with an enormous diamond ring on her left ring finger.

To tease her fans a little bit more, Minaj posted a picture of her hand rocking a very gaudy ring.

“This looks like a 15-carat fancy yellow heart modified brilliant-cut diamond mounted in platinum with a double halo of white pavé diamonds,” Morgan Shara of MASbisjoux jewelry told E! News. “This would retail for approximately $500,000.”

Even though there hasn’t been any concrete confirmation statements about Minaj and Mill making it official, Drake may have confirmed the rumors.

During the second weekend of Coachella t while Drake was performing, the “Harajuku Barbie” hopped on stage where he expressed his love for her and congratulated her. Even though he didn’t specifically say what he was congratulating her for, her ring said it all when it glistened as the two hugged.

Congrats, Nicki and Meek.
