Chris Tucker, Dave Chappelle & Baron Davis were spotted lunching in LA the other day. Hopefully they’re working on some new ish cause it’s been way too long! Chris is gonna have to hit the gym though if it’s an action flick…

ATL native, Chris Tucker may be next in line for Maury’s paternity test. Reports have surfaced that a woman is claming that the funnyman is the father of her two-year old daughter and that he is a deadbeat dad. Chris, who was once rumored to be dating India.Arie, has denied the claims:
Gail Webb claims the pair dated for years before he disappeared as soon as they discovered she was pregnant with Krista Jane.
“She says, I just want help with Krista and want her to know her father. If Chris Tucker wants to go to court, I welcome the opportunity to show the world what a big liar- and deadbeat father – he really is.” (Source)
When are these grown azz men gonna learn to wrap it up??
