This obviously didn’t sit well with the former Clipse group member who responded with ANOTHER diss track on Tuesday called The Story of Adidon (LISTEN HERE)!

Pusha wrote on Instagram:

“Virginia Williams shan’t ever be mentioned in song by ANYONE aside from me.”

According to Pusha, the song’s cover — which features a young Drake in blackface makeup — is a real photo taken by photographer David Leyes.

In the song, Pusha alleges that Drake has a secret chid with reported porn star Sophie Brussaux, who in 2017 claimed Drizzy tried to get her to have an abortion.

Later that month, we EXCLUSIVELY published her very first public baby bump photo and sonograms.

Pusha raps:

Sophie knows better, ask your baby mother/ Cleaned her up for IG, but the stench is on her/ A baby’s involved, it’s deeper than rap/ We talkin’ character, let me keep with the facts/ You are hiding a child, let that boy come home/ Deadbeat mothafucka playin’ border patrol, ooh/ Adonis is your son/ And he deserves more than an Adidas press run, that’s real/ Love that baby, respect that girl/ Forget she’s a porn star, let her be your world

After the song went viral, Twitter users couldn’t contain their emotions! See the best reactions (below):

Victoria’s Secret Model Shanina Shaik Marries DJ Ruckus

Wedding bells are ringing! Shanina Shaik tied the knot with her fiancé, DJ Ruckus, in the Bahamas on Saturday, April 28, Us Weekly confirms.

Celebrity Weddings of 2018

The bride and groom exchanged vows in front of their closest friends and family members on the island of Eleuthera, where Ruckus’ cousin Lenny Kravitz lives. Celebrity guests included Kravitz and his daughter, Zoe Kravitz, Evan Ross and Ashlee Simpson, Paris Hilton and model Nadine Leopold.

The disc jockey, 34, popped the question to the former Victoria’s Secret model, 27, on Kravitz’s private beach in December 2016.

Denzel Washington and his wife, Pauletta Washington, were on hand for the romantic proposal, too. The couple, who are family friends, hand-delivered the rings to the Australian beauty. Later on, Ruckus’ favorite actor Tyrese Gibson and mentor Joseph “Rev Run” Simmons called via FaceTime to offer their congratulations.

Prior to walking down the aisle, Shaik admitted that she was stressed out about finalizing all of the details for the pair’s big day. “I’m very grateful for my long flights because I actually have time to think about things and write things down and go over emails,” she told News Corp Australia in November.

Mackenzie McKee Confesses Secret Split: Josh & I Broke Up!

It’s still unclear if Mackenzie McKee will replace Farrah Abraham on Teen Mom OG, but MTV certainly seems to have taken an interest in McKee in recent months.

The former Teen Mom 3 star will be featured in a one-off special about her life that recently wrapped filming and is set to air next month.

Mackenzie McKee Throwback Pic

As a businesswoman, fitness fanatic, and married mother of three, McKee is unquestionably one of the most functional of the alums of the Teen Mom universe.

Unfortunately, no amount of ambition and intellect can shield you from flat-out bad luck.

You see, the years since TM3 was canceled haven’t always been terribly kind to Mackenzie.

McKee’s mother was recently diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, and the special will focus largely on Mackenzie’s efforts to be there for her mom, all while running a business and meeting the demands of raising three children.

It will also explore the ups and downs of Mackenzie’s marriage and even reveal a surprising secret about her painful past:

Mackenzie McKee, Some Family

In a recent interview with Radar Online, Mackenzie revealed that she was concerned that Josh might not want to participate in the special at all, as doing so would mean shining on a light on a rather dark chapter in their marriage.

“The first person I asked was Josh because I didn’t want to do it if he wasn’t on the same page as me,” she told the site.

“We were split up and seeing other people during Teen Mom 3.”

Yes, it seems that throughout the filming of TM3’s single season, Mackenzie and Josh “pretended to be together.”

“He would run and I just had to cry, ‘Oh my boyfriend is missing,’” she admitted.

Mackenzie McKee, Husband

“It was honestly horrible.”

Mackenzie gave birth to her third child, a son named Broncs, in 2016.

She and Josh were reconciled at the time, and while she had hoped that the arrival of Broncs would bring the two of them closer, the pressures of caring for a third child nearly tore them apart.

“I was in a really dark place,” she confessed.

“Then I had Broncs and it got even worse. He actually left and ended up filing for divorce. I think we were separated for two months.”

Mackenzie McKee is Strong

Fortunately, Mackenzie and Josh are doing much better these days.

“Since then we opened up our own businesses and we got a house that’s a very nice home for our kids,” she said.

“But we’re still a hot mess,” she joked, concluding on a lighter note.

Mackenzie became a fan favorite during her short time on TM3, and we’re sure her still-loyal following will be happy to hear that her marriage has turned around.’

And the continued interest in McKee’s personal life might just be enough to land her back on MTV on a full-time basis.

Inside Donald Trump Jr. and Aubrey O’Day’s Secret Affair

Following the news that Donald Trump Jr. had an affair with Aubrey O’Day while married to wife Vanessa Trump — who filed for divorce from him on March 15 — multiple sources are taking Us Weekly inside their secret relationship.

Celebrity Splits of 2018

“He would look at her like a piece of meat,” an insider explained to Us about their time on set of Celebrity Apprentice’s fifth season in 2011. “But he was equally taken by her intellect. She impressed him a lot on the show. She was smart.”

As previously reported, multiple sources confirmed to Us Weekly that the 34-year-old former Danity Kane band member and Trump’s affair began “toward the end of the taping” and continued until March 2012.

“The way he positioned it to Aubrey was that he and Vanessa were already on the outs,” a source close to production told Us.

The insider also revealed that the two were “spending a lot of time together,” and added that “they called and texted all the time too,” noting that they “weren’t the most careful, either.”

Meanwhile, a source close to O’Day told Us: “He called her all the time and really cared about her. He was giving her a lot of advice on her career. She’s actually a bright girl, way smarter than people realize,” adding that “Don fell hard for Aubrey too,” and even told her that he would leave Vanessa for her.

The affair ended after Vanessa found emails between the two, leading him to call it quits with the reality star.

As previously reported, Vanessa filed for divorce earlier this week. “After 12 years of marriage, we have decided to go our separate ways,” the former couple said in a statement to Us at the time. “We will always have tremendous respect for each other and our families. We have five beautiful children together and they remain our top priority. We ask for your privacy during this time.”

Celebrity Couples Who Stayed Together After Cheating Scandals

According to a source close to Vanessa, while together, she and Trump Jr. “had a very active and normal social life” and “were a humble, loving, great couple and very down-to-earth.”

“Their social life completely evaporated once Trump took office,” the source added. “They became recluses,” adding that Trump Jr.’s father being president has “changed who he is and impacted his life with Vanessa.”

The source noted that “everyone around Vanessa feels bad for her.”

“It takes a lot to walk away from your marriage to the president’s son,” the insider added. “It’s not an easy life to adjust to. She didn’t sign up for this.”

Trump Jr. and Vanessa are parents to five children: Kai, 10, Donald III, 9, Tristan, 6, Spencer, 5, and Chloe, 3.

Donald Trump Jr.: Secret DMs, Bacon Fetish… REVEALED!

We all love bacon.

It may very well be the perfect food.

But new direct messages released by a model named Melissa Stetten have revealed the level to which Donald Trump Jr. apparently adores this pig-made delicacy…

Donald Trump Junior

… and it’s A LOT.

Donald Trump Jr. loves bacon a lot.

The oldest son of President Donald Trump, whose marriage legally fell apart this week, sent Stetten a number of messages in November of 2011, not long after his wife gave birth to son Tristan.

The DMs don’t necessarily reflect any sort of inappropriate relationship between the businessman and the model.

They simply depict an odd obsession of Donald Trump Jr.’s that has been rumored about over the years.

“Surprised his marriage didn’t work out since he was sending me DMs a month after his wife gave birth,” Stetten tweeted this week, sharing a screen shot of Trump Jr.’s message to her, which read as follows:

“Well Im getting s–t 4the bacon comment glad I opted not 2send the tweet asking 4pics from ur bathroom tweet last night;) people need2chil.”

Need an explanation?

Let’s turn to Stetten…

She said on Thursday that this DM came after she tweeted a “joke about pulling a muscle changing a tampon” and – to her confusion – “he replied asking if I smelled bacon?”

stetten message

Once word of this exchange went viral, a spokeswoman for Trump Jr. provided the full thread of their DMs in order to prove two things:

1. There was no affair going on.

2. Both sides were clearly joking around during their online chat.

Here is the full exchange:

full junior

We’re happy to grant that Trump Jr. and Stetten were not carrying on in a sexual manner.

Was the former flirting with the latter? We’ll leave that up to readers to debate.

Stetten told People Magazine, though, that she had “no idea” what The Other Donald meant by the bacon reference, although she did cite other Tweets from around this time that proved Trump has “some weird obsession with bacon.”

For example:

One tweet from Trump Jr. back then read:

“Does anyone else have a Bacon fetish??? It sounds so wrong but tastes so right!”

loving bacon

How does Stetten know Trump?

She doesn’t, not really.

“He just started following me so I followed back,” she tells People, adding:

“He would favorite my tweets and occasionally reply. I always thought of the Trumps as idiots so it was entertaining to see his failed attempts at hitting on me.”

In further Tweets shared by Stetten, she responded to his initial remark by joking, “@DonaldJTrumpJr soaking my body in bacon today,” to which he replied:

“Now you’re just toying w my emotions. Why don’t women come up w bacon perfume? Seems so much better than that channel [sic] crap.”

He later wrote:

“Stop that!!! I am a happily married man,” with a winking smiley face.

Okay, there’s no longer a debate: Trump was flirting with her.

weird tweet

Trump Jr. has not publicly responded to Stetten’s tweets.

He does have other things to worry about, of course.

As previously mentioned, his wife and the mother of five children just filed for divorce.

And he’s also under investigation for possibly colluding with Russian agents in order to help swing the Presidential election to his father.

The Secret Sauce Behind Scott’s Cheap Flights

Scott Keyes posing with his dog
“Have you heard of Scott’s Cheap Flights? Should I use them?”

When friends and family far removed from the travel hacking/cheap flights space ask me about a website, I know its mainstream. While there are many good deal websites out there (The Flight Deal, Secret Flying, and Holiday Pirates are three of my favorites), Scott’s Cheap Flights seems to have broken through where others have not. Over 1 million people get his daily flight deals email. I’m a big fan of the website and their ability to often break airfare deals (I used one of their alerts to fly to South Africa). It turns out Scott is a fan of my website too so we sat down for an interview where I got him to spill the secret behind his website:

Nomadic Matt: Tell everyone about yourself. How did you get into this?
Scott: When I graduated college in 2009, I knew two things: (1) I wanted to travel the world and (2) I was never going to be wealthy. So if I wasn’t going to let #2 prevent #1, I knew I would have to figure out some creative ways to travel without spending my life savings. I began reading up on flight pricing economics, spending hours on various flight search engines, and learning various airfare patterns. Before long, I found an online community of fellow travel hackers and cheap-flight aficionados who enjoy not just travel but also the thrill of getting a great deal on flights.

Where did the idea of this website come from?
Scott’s Cheap Flights has a weird origin story. In 2013, I got the best deal of my life: nonstop from NYC to Milan for $ 130 round-trip. Milan hadn’t even been on my radar as a place to visit, but for $ 130 round-trip, there’s no way I wouldn’t go. And it turned out to be amazing! I went skiing in the Alps, caught an AC Milan match, hiked Cinque Terre, hung out on Lake Como. It was divine.

When I got back, word spread among friends and coworkers about the deal I got, and dozens of them began asking me to let them know next time I found a fare like that so they could get in on it, too. So rather than try to remember to tell George and Esther and Aviva when a great deal popped up, I decided to start a simple little email list instead so I could alert everyone at once. Scott’s Cheap Flights was born.

For the first 18 months, though, it was just a little, fun hobby I did for my friends. It wasn’t until August 2015 that it had generated enough organic growth that it made sense to think about turning it into a business.

Scott posing in front of a hilly landscape

You’ve sort of blown up in the last year or so. What do you think have been the two biggest factors into your success?
First off, thanks! We just hit one million subscribers — still hard for me to believe. The credit goes to two primary factors:

First, there’s an incredible team who runs Scott’s Cheap Flights. It’s not just me; we’re up to 25 folks on the team now. We have a team of flight searchers finding great deals around the world, and also a team of amazing customer support folks. On an average day we get well over 700 emails in our inbox, and most people get a response within a few hours, if not a few minutes. I think this is a major reason why more than 50% of people who sign up for Scott’s Cheap Flights found out about it via word of mouth.

Second, the startup itself had very serendipitous timing. Right around when Scott’s Cheap Flights became a business, international flight prices began to plummet, fueled by low oil prices and a bevy of new low-cost airlines like Norwegian and WOW jumping into the transatlantic market. Whereas in 2010 it was rare to see flights from the US to Europe under $ 900 round-trip, in 2015 (and through to today), it’s relatively common to see those same flights around $ 400 round-trip, if not less. We can’t force airlines to offer cheap flights, but we’ve been there to ride the wave these past few years and help subscribers pay half of what they used to to travel abroad.

Were there any media hits or high-profile features that really changed your trajectory? I remember hearing about you a few years ago, but now it seems everyone I know, even outside of travel, has heard of your newsletter.
There was one in particular: a Business Insider article and I were taking in the summer of 2015. It helped take Scott’s Cheap Flights from a hobby to a full-fledged business by bringing in thousands of new subscribers. We’ve had hundreds of media hits in the two years since then, but as we’ve grown, each individual one has necessarily had a diminishing impact. Perhaps a Nomadic Matt interview will give a big new boost though!

Scott doing a television interview

How does your website work? How do you find these deals? Do you have team of people searching for deals? Is it an algorithm?
One thing that surprises a lot of people is that we don’t have a bunch of computers running secret algorithms to find cheap flights. All of our fares are searched by hand. The secret sauce is hard work. Airfare changes by the hour, if not by the minute, and the best deals don’t tend to last very long, so finding out about them early is the key to booking them before they’re gone. Most people don’t want to spend all their free time searching for cheap flights; we love doing it and being subscribers’ early detection radar.

Another way to think of it is like this: Almost everybody is capable of cooking dinner at home, but that doesn’t prevent the existence of the restaurant industry. People don’t always want to put in the time and effort required to find cheap flights, so we’re happy to do it for them.

That seems super time-consuming. How do you decide what and where to search? Do you just randomly plugging in places and dates, or is there more of a method to the madness?
There’s a bit of proprietary knowledge that goes into the process, but 95% of it is just the sheer legwork, day after day, searching various routes and seeing what pops up. There’s more of a skill aspect to the process than I would’ve guessed four years ago, whether that’s remembering certain esoteric routes that periodically go on sale, or knowing that a fare war out of one city likely indicates fare drops in other similar cities. For the most part, though, it’s just a small team of incredibly talented and dedicated flight searchers scouring through fares all day every day, disregarding 99% of them and skimming off the juiciest 1% to send to subscribers.

What are some of the biggest trends in flights you are seeing right now?
In the last year or two we’ve seen far cheaper flights than in the past to India (before: $ 1,000+, now: ~$ 600), Italy and the Netherlands (before: $ 900, now: ~$ 350), and Hawaii (before: $ 800, now $ 350 from the West Coast, $ 550 from further east).

Unfortunately (though perhaps not surprisingly), we’re seeing a continued drought of cheap flights to popular destinations like Brazil, Argentina, Australia, and New Zealand.

In addition, we’re seeing a continued unbundling of airfare: more low-cost carriers and “budget economy” fares offered by full-service carriers that don’t include checked bags, seat selection, or meals.

Scott in the Cinque Terre

Do you use your own deals or are you more of a points/miles-in-business-class kind of guy?
Sure do! I’m personally not a business-class type of guy. I’m still young enough to be fine in coach for as long and far as a plane can fly. Ask me again in 20 years — but in general I’m uncomfortable being doted on in the premium section of the plane. I’m a simple guy. I don’t need much.

Will we see more business-class deals?
Don’t wanna overpromise and underdeliver. Stay tuned!

Do you plan to go global and feature more non-US deals?
Yes! We have a team of flight searchers finding cheap fares departing not just from the US but also Canada, the UK and mainland Europe, Australia and New Zealand, the Caribbean, Latin America, Asia, and the Middle East (Sub-Saharan Africa coming soon!).

You get all these flight deals, but tell me some of your favorite travel experiences. What’s one of your favorite recent travel memories?
Last year my wife and I took a trip to Belarus to visit her family. One of the days we took a trip to a “park” that consisted of a big open field filled with old discarded and retired Cold War–era Soviet weapons. Think machine guns, missiles, and tanks.

Mostly people would walk around and pose for selfies in front of these massive weapons, but at one point I saw a small group of tourists from Asia hand a park operator some cash and then start to climb on top of a WWII-era tank. I thought they were just going to take photos, but a few seconds later the tank started lurching forward before hitting a cool 25 miles per hour, zipping around the park. These tourists were having the time of their effing lives, and it gave me so much joy just to watch them.

Scott sitting in front of some salt flats

Your deal website is great of course, but what about just everyday flights people need to see Grandma. What advice do you have based on your experience learning how airline pricing works?
The single best trick to getting cheap airfare is flexibility. Being flexible not just with your dates but also your locations. For example, that NYC-Milan nonstop round-trip deal for $ 130 I mentioned at the top. I wasn’t living in NYC; I was living in DC. But for that fare it was well worth the short $ 20 bus ride up. I spent the weekend with friends in NYC and saved myself $ 650 off what fares would’ve been from DC to Milan.

The way most people approach getting a flight is this: (1) pick where they want to go; (2) pick their dates; and (3) see what prices are available. By prioritizing the fare lowest, they often end up with expensive tickets.

Instead, if getting a cheap flight is your priority, flip the order: (1) see what prices are available to various places are around the world; (2) decide which of the cheap destinations appeal to you; and (3) select the dates you like that have the cheap fares available.

What’s the craziest deal you ever got?
In addition to that $ 130 nonstop NYC-Milan deal, my wife and I recently scored $ 169 round-trip flights to Japan — flippin’ love mistake fares. And team members have gotten similarly good deals to Hawaii, New Zealand, etc.

Finally, what’s one non-airfare-related travel piece of advice you’d give someone?
Read more magazine articles and listen to more smart, informative podcasts. I’m a firm believer in the liberal arts approach of knowing a bit about everything (as opposed to everything about just one subject), not only as a way to be a well-rounded person but also as a social lubricant. If you can hold a conversation about anything from architecture to the stock market to Asian budget airlines, you’re far more likely to meet interesting people and develop deeper relationships.

Scott founded Scott’s Cheap Flights in a Denver coffeeshop. Scott is the flight searcher-in-chief, spending 8-12 hours a day on Google Flights as well as overseeing daily operations. If you’re looking for flight deals, it’s one of the best.
