Looks like Faith Evans is ready to talk on one about her involvement with Tupac in her new book. The incident that encouraged Tupac to insinuate that he had infact messed around with Biggies then wife on camera will be cleared up by Faith who has always denied any physical involvement with her late husbands nemesis. According to the autobiography, Tupac did proposition Evans on more than one occasion but Faith refused all advances validating Faith’s theory that Tupac was using her name in his war against Biggie. Her book is in stores now.
Reports have surfaced that the recent lawsuit filed against Brooklyns Don Diva Foxy Brown are incomprehensible to the rapper and her legal team. Allegedly Simon and Schuster who filed last week to attempt to recoup the $75,000 advance they gave her for the book had agreed to put the book on hold while Foxy underwent treatment to resolve her hearing issue.According to Laura Dilimetin, the rappers lawyer, once Foxy had recovered from the issues correlating to her loss of hearing the publishing company waved the red flag until they told her otherwise. It is unclear at this time what the outcome of the tentatively titled book Broken Silence will be. According to reps for Brown, various other publishing companies have show interest in her penning her autobiography for them. And with her troubled past you can guarantee that it will be a big seller.In other Foxy news, her so called boo, Rick Ross has indicted that the couple are no longer an item…were they ever? You know Fox isn’t going to get down with a C.O.
