Blige was honored at the event, which was held at Los Angeles’ Sunset Tower Hotel and several of her famous music industry friends and supporters came out to toast the queen of hip-hop soul at the pre-Grammy awards show.

Karruche what do u do ? I guess she's going to be another Amber Rose and ride it on out of just being a piece of azz that was smashed by an entertainer and hopefully she'll get up on a real meal ticket to stay in that life.

  9. N4LF says:

    Oh and Karruche stop letting yer dates wear Chris's Shirt and hat.He looks as if he's going to pop out of that shirt. and plus that shirt looks as if it is faded and not properly cleaned right instead of dry cleaned it was washed in hot water and faded plus shrunk !
