Damon Dash sues Rachel Roy for $2.5 million!

It's not over until Damon Dash says it's over.

Technically, the custody battle is, in fact, over, but the legal war wages on!

Damon's ex-wife and fashion designer Rachel Roy recently won full custody over their kids.

On Thursday, only three days after the hearing, the Roc-A-Fella Records co-founder is firing back at his ex by suing her for $2.5 million.

That's right. $2.5 MILLION. But it actually has nothing to do with their kids, Ava and Tallulah.

Abercrombie & Fitch Changes Its Looks-Based Hiring Policy! No More Shirtless Dudes Either!

| Filed under: Fashion SmashionBusiness BlitzAbercrombie & Fitch

Abercrombie and Fitch changes its looks-based hiring policy.

Ha, even Abercrombie & Fitch is over its superficial hiring policy!

In a recent press release the company has outlined several major changes they'll be making in their stores and hiring policies in order to bring in more customers, and appease shareholders, naturally.

Most notably, sales associates will no longer have to look quintessentially "hot" to be given jobs at the company's stores in the first place.

A&F's notorious "Look Policy" banned heavy makeup, including eyeliner, French-tip manicures, certain hair-styling products and even mustaches.

Employees were also referred to as "models," but now, they will be called brand representatives.

Moreover, there won't be shirtless men baring their abs at every store opening, nor will advertisements be as sexualized as they were in previous years, with completely naked models in some cases.

Former CEO Mark Jeffries caught a lot of flack a few years ago for stating that he didn't want people who weren't conventionally attractive to shop at Abercrombie.

With sales declining in recent years as well, Jeffries' management decisions suddenly didn't seem so great, and he was let go.

Only time will tell if the new direction the company is heading in will actually get people excited for the brand again.

50 Shades Of Grey Author E.L. James Handpicked The Perfect Screenwriter For The Sequel — Her Husband!

| Filed under: Film FlickersBusiness BlitzBookz50 Shades Of Grey

no title

It seems the next Fifty Shades of Grey film will keep even truer to the book than the first!

We told you Fifty Shades Darker lost its director Sam Taylor-Johnson and writer Kelly Marcel. Now the confirmed sequel finally has a new screenwriter.

Of course, Niall Leonard isn't new to author E.L. James — he's her husband of 20 years!

[ Related: 50 Shades Of Grey's Reviews Are In! See What The Critics Had To Say! ]

Niall — who has screenwriting credits on the British television shows Wire In The Blood and Air Force One Is Down — reportedly did some uncredited work on the first film as well.

This seems like a clever move by E.L., who reportedly clashed with the previous writers over how closely the films should adhere to the books.

Rumor is E.L. wanted to pen the scripts herself, but the studio wouldn't let her.

We're guessing she'll get the movies she wants now. Or she and her hubby will have to have another creative meeting in the Red Room of Pain! LOLz!

Jay Z And Beyoncé's Joint Album Might Still Be Released — But Only On Tidal! Can This Save The Struggling Venture??

Parents will do anything to protect their baby.

In February, we reported that Jay Z and Beyoncé might be recording an album together — a rumor that seemed way too good to be true.

This week, it's been reported the power couple's album is still underway. And it will be exclusively available on — you guessed it — Tidal!

[ Related: Kanye West Clears The Air & CONFIRMS That Tidal Is NOT Run By The Illuminati! Good To Know! ]

Fuse host DJ Skee reported on Wednesday that Jay and Bey's record is nearly done and will "be released exclusively" on Jay's streaming service, which promises to be a better royalty deal for artists.

This highly anticipated album might just be what Tidal needs to give it an extra wind, as the company has sunk down out of the US iPhone top 700 download chart since its debut in March!

This joint project with his wife will mark Jay's fifth collaboration album, the most recent being 2011's Watch The Throne with bestie Kanye West — who, by the way, has recently deleted all of his social media support of Tidal. Inneresting…

No official announcement has been made yet from Blue Ivy's parents on the collaboration album, but if Tidal is at stake, they'll do anything they can to save their baby business!

Tidal Isn't Making A Big Splash On The Download List But Its Competitors Are! Can Jay Z's Streaming Service Stay Afloat Or Will It Capsize???

Jay Z made big waves announcing the launch of his streaming service Tidal, which aimed to make streaming music a better deal for artists and a pricier deal for consumers.

Tidal's social media push included a star studded spokes-panel of Mr. Carter's friends. Beyoncé, Kanye West, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj and more of the industry's wealthiest artists urged users to switch to Tidal because of it's "high fidelity" sound.

But the public didn't seem to buy into the spectacle. After a couple of weeks into its release, the streaming service made less of a splash and more of a doggy paddle, barely competing with their streaming nemeses Spotify and Pandora.

Tidal cracked the US iPhone top 20 download chart for two weeks before it sunk all the way down out of the top 700! And they've only made their enemies stronger — Pandora and Spotify took the No. 3 and No. 4 positions of the US iPhone revenue chart!

It looks like the company's anti-Spotify movement only increased the public awareness of the streaming service!

Tidal is now scrambling to recover. They replaced their CEO in a "streamlining" move, but we're thinking it might be too late for Jay's baby business to stay afloat.

Do U think it's too late for Tidal?

There's Someone Missing From Disney's Avengers: Age Of Ultron Merchandise — Scarlett Johansson! Where Are All Of The Black Widow Toys??

There was a time when Disney dropping the ball meant that it was time for the next word in a sing-a-long!

With strong heroines like in Merida from Brave and Elsa & Anna of 2013's smash Frozen, Disney is stepping out of the old paradigms of princesses as damsels in distress. But it seems when it comes to Marvel, they have trouble knowing what girls want these days.

With Avengers: Age Of Ultron coming soon, shelves around the world are buckling under the weight of film tie-in merchandise. And yet across the board, it's tough to find merchandise relating to Black Widow!

Sadly, Disney itself seems to be the worst offender. They released
