Ice Cube is determined to release a new Friday movie. In the latest update, he said he wrote two new scripts but Warner Brothers rejected them. He said quote, “they don’t believe in the culture man… I had two scripts. I wrote one; it was the sh*t. They was like, ‘Yo, we don’t want Craig and Day-Day in jail, ’cause Craig and Day-Day went to jail for selling weed before it was legal!” Ice cube and Warner brothers have been butting heads for quite some time. The Last Friday was released in 2012 and ever since Ice Cube has been pushing for a sequel.
Nia Long’s ex, and father of her oldest son, Massai Z. Dorsey, revealed some information about the Ime Udoka cheating scandal. The Boston Celtics head coach was accused of having an affair with a female coworker and, as a result, was suspended from his role as head coach.
Although Nia Long hasn’t spoken out directly about her fiancé, Massai claims Nia forgave Ima. He said quote, “We talk as a family, and it’s all about unconditional love, and that’s what she’s giving him.” He also said, “Ime made a mistake. Every man needs another chance. Like the Bible says, the flesh is weak. He’s not a bad guy. Hopefully, he’s learned from this.” Massai made it clear he doesn’t condone Ime’s actions but believes his position as a head coach “comes with a lot.”
