“Love & Hip-Hop” star Apryl Jones claims she initially didn’t want to get into reality TV. She joined the show to help her then-boyfriend and father of her children, R&B singer Omarion, dispel rumors about his sexuality.
Apryl Jones Reveals ‘Love & Hip-Hop’ Move Was For Omarion
Apryl Jones has been in the headlines a lot lately thanks to her rumored new romance with rap legend Dr. Dre. In a recent interview, the 34-year-old talks about why she joined the “Love & Hip-Hop” reality TV franchise at a time when Omarion needed her on his arm.
“That whole situation with me and O on “Love & Hip-Hop” was completely controlled. I never even wanted to do freakin’ reality TV. His management thought it would be good for him to show who he was and his life because there were gay rumors. So to show he was in a relationship with a woman and having kids and all that, they thought it would be great. If you love somebody you’re going to do it, but it just felt very controlled. I wasn’t really myself.”

Nicole Young Wants Answers
The estranged wife of West Coast rap icon Dr. Dre, Nicole Young, really wants answers. She’s reportedly called upon three women she alleges her husband slept with to sit for depositions, which are formal statements usually used for evidence. Young says one of the woman bought a house for over $2 million in 2019 and she wants to know if Dre bought it for her. Dr. Dre’s now-distant partner needs to find out if he bought the alleged mistresses gifts and gave them money.
Nicole Young wants three women whom she claims were intimate with Dre during their marriage to sit for depositions … and according to new docs, obtained by TMZ, she’s looking to ask them if Dre lavished them with money and gifts. In the docs, Nicole claims the women’s lawyer is trying to delay their depositions until the validity of the prenup is decided … but Nicole wants answers sooner rather than later, because she says it could affect spousal support and the validity of her prenup itself. Specifically, Nicole says one of the women bought a $2.15-million house free and clear in 2019 … and she wants to ask if Dre provided the dough for the purchase. (TMZ)
Dr. Dre’s Dad Speaks On Relationship
Dr. Dre has had his entire personal life laid out for the public in recent months. The latest piece of family drama sees Dre’s father coming forward to shed some more light on his view of the Doctor’s past. The Page Six section of the New York Post ran a feature piece on Dr. Dre that went into detail about the good, the bad and the ugly of the hip-hop mogul’s life and career. In it, Dr. Dre’s father, Theodore Young, talked about their nonexistent relationship — seemingly blaming that on Dre’s mother and grandmother badmouthing him.
“I haven’t seen Andre since his grandfather died and I can’t even remember when that was,” the 73-year-old told The Post from his home near Sacramento, Calif. “We have no relationship. My other sons love me. They tell me they love me. But coming from where I come from, most young men like Andre who have a big success don’t give a damn about their dad.”
