Scoop: Vivica A. Fox apologizes to Soulja Boy

Vivica A. Fox and Soulja Boy are cool, but the “Empire” actress isn’t apologizing to 50 Cent, her ex.

The feud started Sunday when she appeared on “Watch What Happens Live” and insinuated that 50 Cent was bisexual when Andy Cohen asked her, “What were your thoughts when 50 Cent blamed the season ratings dip on ‘gay stuff?’” and she answered, “First of all, you know the pot called the kettle black is all I’m saying.”

She then referred to an XXL magazine cover with 50 Cent that made him look “like a booty snatcher” with Soulja Boy.

Both rappers responded online: 50 Cent posted bad pictures of her and said she had a “really bad boob job,” and Soulja said, “Everybody hit up this cougar..she’s single & ready to mingle.”

On Monday, Fox tweeted an apology to Soulja Boy: “Let me say this!! Wasn’t speaking about @souljaboy only my EX and his antics! I apologize for that to @souljaboy.”

Meanwhile, Soulja told TMZ he’s not gay, he doesn’t know Fox, and he didn’t get why she brought his name up at all.


IRON CHEF TO DIVORCE

Iron Chef Cat Cora and her wife Jennifer Cora are splitting.

A statement released Monday said she and Jennifer are “committed to jointly raising their sons in a peaceful, nurturing and healthy environment,” the Associated Press reported.

“It is with great sadness, that after 17 years, a tremendous amount work, careful consideration and heavy hearts, my wife and I have mutually decided to no longer remain married,” Cat, 48, told People.

Yet TMZ reports that it has obtained “dueling divorce” documents filed in Santa Barbara at the end of October, and that “all signs point to a bitter custody struggle over their four kids.”

Jennifer, 44, apparently is requesting full physical custody of their kids and Cat is asking for joint physical custody.

TMZ also reports that Jennifer is seeking spousal support from Cat, the family breadwinner.

The couple’s sons are Zoran, 11, Caje, 8, Nash, 6, and Thatcher, 6.
