Although he recently proposed to his longtime love Gabrielle Union, Dwayne Waderecently fathered a baby with another woman. This proposal may have been a make-up for Wades immoral behavior. The news comes from Entertainment Tonight who confirmed with a source that the Miami Heat star recently spent time with his new child; a baby boy from a woman he’s known for “many years.”
James Avery, 68, lovingly known as “Uncle Phil” (Phillip Banks) to Will Smith’s character on the “Fresh Prince of Bel Air,” has passed away. Having recently undergone open heart surgery, the beloved actor passed away from complications on New Year’s Eve.
A native of Atlantic City, NJ, Avery is a former military man. His first onscreen appearance was in an uncredited role in the 1980′s film The Blues Brothers.
Alfonso Ribeiro, who played his son Carlton Banks on the ’90s television comedy, posts on social media:
I’m deeply saddened to say that James Avery has passed away. He was a second father to me. I will miss him greatly. pic.twitter.com/UrW0EeBFbO
Just days after news broke that Dwayne Wade fathered a baby while on a so-called “break” from Gabrielle Union, Ludacris has found himself in a similar situation. The Atlanta rapper, 36, secretly welcomed a baby girl named Cai Bella Bridges on December 6, 2013. The child was not with his longtime girlfriend Eudoxie however, and instead was from a “high school friend” named Tamika “Tammy” Fuller.
According to TMZ who broke the story, Ludacris has filed legal documents to ensure that Fuller’s child support payments are manageable to his income. In the documents Ludacris claims he makes around $25,842.41 a month on average. Under Georgia law his monthly child support payment would be set at $1,754.66.
So far neither Eudoxie nor Ludacris have commented on the baby news.
