Is Kanye West in fear of his daughter’s life to the point of hiring a look-alike to serve as her double? Maybe so. Media sources allege that the rapper has spent upwards of $500,000 for a baby double in hopes of protecting North West from photographers.
According to HipHopDX.com,
“Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have reportedly paid $500,000 to enlist a body double for their daughter North West…The couple reportedly held tryouts for the stand-in child in Los Angeles. They also reportedly hired a body double for their nanny to further confuse paparazzi.”
Kanye told media a few months back that he was working to change the way that the paps photograph his daughter. “I’m changing things for my daughter,” said West. “I’m gonna tell my daughter by the time she understands, I’ll be like, ‘Me and your mother were in a completely different situation than you’re in. At that time paparazzi was legal, people could take your pictures, climb over your fence, people would do that and you wouldn’t even get paid for it. You see all these checks you getting at age six? It’s because people want to take your picture. I made that happen Nori.’ That’s what I will tell her.”
North is Kanye West’s first child with wife Kim Kardashian.
Harper Tillman is a pint sized model who is making things happen. The mini fashion mogul recently did a few shots for Alivia Simone, and she looked fierce.
Harper smiled and posed at all the right moments. Her positive attitude added a lighter side to the shoot. The young model held what appeared to be a blower in one picture as other models laughed along with her.
The Alivia Simoe brand was birthed out of a mother and daughter’s vision. Shirley and Simone began creating “beautiful clothes for beautiful souls” after being inspired by a little girl named Alivia Simone. “Our collection illustrates our preference for bold, gorgeous colors, whimsical prints, interesting textures and vibrant patterns.”
The brand certainly picked a good person to represent their liveliness, as anyone who has seen Harper in action knows that she is a little pro who captures the essence of every shoot she works. Harper is Travares and Kiki Tillman’s daughter.

Several stars came out to support the impending public debut of LUCY this past Wednesday. Eva Marcille was the perfect host who got everyone involved and gave out a $100 VISA gift card to one social media fan who joined the LUCY conversation online.

Jaid and Jax are enjoying the Summer. The twin brothers recently spent the day with mom, Garcelle Beauvais, at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, California. Jaid and Jax stayed near mom as they discovered life under the sea. Garcelle was excited to learn along with her sons and told Instagram fans that she was having “family time with my two favorite boys.”
The White House Down star is actively promoting the second book in her I AM children’s series entitled I Am Living in 2 Homes. The story is one of Jay and Nia who previously discovered that they were of mixed heritage. Now the two must deal with the effects of divorce after their parents decide to end their marriage. Jay and Nia cope with living in two different homes, which includes adjusting to different rules. The two characters rely on family and friends to get them through the rough spots of divorce.
Jaid and Jax are Garcelle Beauvais kids with ex-husband Mike Nilon. The actress has three children in all. You can catch Garcelle in TV One’s original movie Girlfriends’ Getaway when it premieres on Saturday, August 30, 2014.
Percy Miller, a.k.a. Master P, is withholding nothing when it comes to his relationship with estranged wife Sonya Miller. The Hip Hop mogul tells Wendy Williams about his efforts to rear his children with Sonya and the custody hearing that he missed.
“I think that people got to realize that in a relationship, things happen, people grow together or they grow apart,” says P. “I’m not mad at [Sonya]. I love her. She’s my kids’ mother and we have to take care of our kids forever. I think what people need to realize is when lawyers come into play, and you know, you got lawyers who don’t know your business, or don’t know where you come from, they play a big effect.”
Miller missed a court date, which caused him to lose custody of his kids. The rapper tells Williams that he was trying to sort through his daughter’s academic and behavioral habits with the school principal at the time. “She’s out of control,” explains the star. “My dad put the belt on me. When I got acting bad…that’s what I really want to do but then I’ll be back on–somebody said ‘P did this.’ Sometimes you do need to be chastised. I’ve been with her, I’ve been going to the school on my own, dealing with principals and saying you know what ‘You’re a smart girl, you’re beautiful, you need to get it together in school because that’s all I’m asking you to nothing else but do your school work.’”
Master P and the family are set to have their own reality show in coming months. Although Wendy is concerned about the rap star exposing his kids to the scrutiny of the public, Percy says that he and his family will bring something fresh to the genre. “The difference with me, that I feel like right now, is that my life has been a big secret. People never got a chance to see how the Millers really live. And this is a fun show, as a single father raising his kids. It’s funny. We’re going out traveling, doing things, showing our life saying where we come from. We come from the projects and we want to motivate kids all across the country to say, ‘P did it, we can do it.’”
Percy Miller has seven kids with Sonya.
Stevie J is working hard to avoid jail in his historical child support case. The ‘Love & Hip Hop’ star has allegedly been talking with federal investigators in hopes of getting his sentence lightened.
“According to federal court docs, Stevie J makes around 27k a month for his role on “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” and from January – August 2013 he made a total of $193,499 from VH1 checks. He has also made over 105k in music royalties in the past decade.
Then on July 11th, the feds filed docs in the case stating they have been in settlement talks with Stevie J in an attempt to resolve the case without going to trial.”
It appears that the conversations have been working in Stevie’s favor thus far, as the feds have scheduled another hearing that could possibly lead to the star avoiding jail time.
Stevie J is said to owe Carol Bennett more than $1 million in back child support. Stevie has five kids in all.

Make way for the Carters in New Orleans. Beyonce, Jay-Z, and Blue were recently spotted in The Big Easy with other family members. Bey and Jay appeared to be indulging in a bit of R&R as Solange and Tina Knowles toured the city with them. Blue was the adorable one with a flowery dress and head bows to match. Jay-Z was recorded as he protectively took his daughter to the car with Beyonce following him with a smile.
The Carters have been visiting New Orleans a lot since Solange moved to The Crescent City. The youngest Knowles sister lived close to Beyonce and Jay-Z in New York before deciding to explore new territory in the Southern part of the country. “I’ve thought about moving to New Orleans for years but just never had the courage to do it,” said Knowles during an interview with Harpers Bazaar earlier this year. “Now my son is at that age where he’s really establishing friends and a community, so I feel like this is a good time to try it out. I consider myself a dual citizen at this point,” added the star.
Solange has one child, Julez, with ex-husband Daniel Smith Sr. Blue Ivy Carter is Beyonce and Jay-Z’s first child together.
Wesley Jonathan and Tamara Mitchell are gearing up for their bundle of joy to arrive in coming weeks. The couple celebrated their little one’s impending birth with a baby shower a few days ago.
The actor and hairstylist had a star-studded party with cake and treats for everyone. Meagan Good and Reagan Gomez-Preston were two of several celebs to attend the shower. Meagan had loads of fun as she took several pictures with the mom-to-be.
Tamara was thankful for all of the effort put into making her happy. “Grateful” tweeted the stylist as she shared highlights from her party. Tamara and Wesley were sure to take a photo with the incredible chef who prepared palate-pleasing food for all to enjoy. The chef let her creativity flow with a baby carriage fruit basket that had a watermelon serving as the carriage.

Zoe Saldana is glowing. The Avatar actress stopped by the Guardians of the Galaxy premiere in Hollywood on Monday, and she definitely showed off her bump. The star stood upright as photographers captured her protruding tummy in her Louis Vuitton Resort dress. Saldana has been fairly quiet about her and husband Marco Perego’s expectancy but her display at the Guardians premiere pretty much sealed the deal.
Although she hasn’t shared much about her pregnancy, Zoe has given her opinion on the growing trend of Hollywood exes remaining lifetime friends. “I don’t want to be the one going, ‘I’m cool, because I’m friends with all my exes,’ says the star. “There’s a reason why you’re called an ex. I crossed you off my list. Moving on. You cross a line, you need to know that you’re going to walk this earth knowing that there’s an individual who has no respect for you.”
Zoe and Marco wed last year in London, after the Avatar star ended her engagement with long-time partner Keith Britton.
Zion and Rohan Marley are getting their special father-son time in before Summer ends. The two men recently spent time together at the 2014 Fifa World Cup in Brazil. Zion posed in a lot of pics with his father as Rohan gave the camera much of his personality. “Who’s going to take it home,” tweeted Rohan next to a picture of the trophy.
The Marley men also visited a coffee plantation and came across a beautiful farm while in the country. “It’s all about the building a foundation @ziyamarley,” wrote the entrepreneur next to a picture of him and Zion observing the sunflowers.
Rohan is certainly laying a foundation on which his son can build. The businessman has one of the most successful coffee businesses around, and memories from a sports career that are simply inspiring. Whether or not his son wants to carry on the family business or be a star athlete is unclear but one thing is for sure, Zion definitely has options.
Zion was born in 1997. Rohan Marley has seven kids.
Happy Birthday Omere! The youngster celebrated his second birthday a few days ago with a Sesame Street themed party to remember.
Yandy Smith and Mandeecees Harris had everything from an amazing Elmo cake to a cool jumper for their son and his guests to enjoy. Omere spent a lot of time on the jumper and mingled with other attendees at the creative workshop that allowed kids to color Elmo and the words, “Happy Birthday Omere.” Yandy and Mandeecees paid attention to every detail, which included changing the name of Sesame Street to Omere Street for a day.
The Reality TV stars’ son was born on July 16, 2012. Yandy was overjoyed to be a mom for the first time, and told social media fans that the day would forever be carved in her mind. “My greatest accomplishment in life was my most difficult task in life.
