All is not well within the YMCMB family.

In a digital cover story with VIBE, the rapper confirms that he's everything isn't cool with the crew. There's been rumors going around for a while about Tyga's disdain for his label and wanting to break off to do his own thing.

In this interview he reveals that he doesn't get along with YMCMB's superstars Nicki Minaj or Drake and calls Drizzy "fake". Tyga also goes into the forced relationships in Young Money and how everyone were just thrown into the crew.

Is Young Money a part of the creative process on this album?
Nah. I tend to distance myself from them.

Are you trying to break out on your own?
Yeah, I'm tryna' go independent. I don't really get along with Drake. I don't really get along with Nicki.

Why?
I don't like Drake as a person. He's just fake to me. I like his music; you know what I'm saying? I think his music is good, but we're all different people. We were forced together and it was kinda' like we were forcing relationships together. It is what it is. But I been friends with Chris [Brown] for like six years. That's my real genuine friend. We hang out all the time. He lives up the street from me, so we don't just do music we hang. I think being signed to Young Money, everybody felt like they had to force a relationship 'cause Wayne put us together. At the end of the day the reason why I signed to Young Money is because of Wayne. Not because of Drake, not because of Nicki. It was because of Wayne and my relationship with him. I try to be cool with everybody, but sometimes, everybody just has different personalities, motives, and different characters. When you realize that, you realize that's not a place where you want to continue to grow.

Engaged: Elisabeth Lorentz with her former stepson Eric Holder

They finally obtained the right to marry from a local court in north-east France in June.

The prosecutor's office opposed the decision but did not appeal.

Bride-to-be Elisabeth said: "At last, it's the big day! I simply hope that our story will be useful to other couples in our situation, because I know there are some."

But there are no hard feelings from her former husband – and her fiancé's father – who will be among the 100 or so guests on the big day.

"He has always supported us," Elisabeth added.

Gambian arrested for having 4 wives, 7 fiancees and 5 girlfriends (PHOTOS)

A suspicious pregnant wife found a picture of a happy couple where the husband looked oddly like her own on Facebook – and slowly realised that not only was he married to the other woman, he was being unfaithful with 16 other women simultaneously.

Amazingly, all of Sonko TIjan's four wives, seven fiancees and five girlfriends believed they were in exclusive relationships with the tireless Gambian charmer, who milked all his women for loans.

Austrian police say Tijan beat all records for bigamy and infidelity in the country – with lovers spanning ages from 22 to 44.Austrian woman Sonja Maier found an image of Tijan with another woman, with the same surname, when she was pregnant with his child after a whirlwind romance.

Maier said, 'I thought that either he had a twin I never knew about or he was cheating on me.'

The two women exchanged notes behind his back, and his web of lies began to unravel.

Tijan also had a wife and family in his home country.

Police believe he may have had relationships with even more women and are appealing for others to come forward.

Detective Patrick Maierhofer: 'He always used the same tactics.
'He would look at women in bars and was always charming and attentive.

'He would also fascinate them with fanciful stories about his homeland in Africa and how he had fled horrific wars leaving his family behind – and later he would ask for financial assistance for them.'

We haven't had a seven-game World Series since 2011 and that's the only one since 2002. That's not to say that there haven't been compelling games in the Fall Classics since then, but there's nothing like the excitement of the last game of the baseball season being winner-take-all.

Of course, we have to have six more games split even between the Giants and Royals before that happens. No doubt, you have read a great deal about this Series here and elsewhere so I won't bore you with another preview.

I'd love to see the Royals win. But I think the Giants are a better team and will prevail.

Might this be the end of the road for Hasheem Thabeet, the second overall pick in the 2009 NBA Draft?

Thabeet was selected by the Memphis Grizzlies who passed on talent like Tyreke Evans, Ricky Rubio, Stephen Curry and James Harden as they fell in love with Thabeet's seven-foot frame. And while you can't teach size, you apparently can't teach fundamentals to those who lack the ability to learn such as Hasheem Thabeet has proven himself to be one of the biggest draft busts in recent memory.

Still given his size there are teams always willing to take a risk and the Detroit Pistons seeing an opportunity brought Thabeet into camp. Sadly it didn't work out however as the Pistons waived the former UConn product on Monday morning.

Pistons announce waiving of 4 players: Brian Cook, Hasheem Thabeet, Lorenzo Brown, Josh Bostic. All were camp invitees, non-guaranteed deals

Michael Sam, the first out gay player drafted into the NFL, was released from the Dallas Cowboys today, the team announced.
Sam spent seven weeks with the Cowboys but was never promoted to the team's 53-man roster. He joined the club on Sept. 3 after being released the previous week by the St. Louis Rams, the team that drafted him near the end of the seventh round in May.
