Moore told her friend that she and Knapp got into an argument and she was waiting outside his home for a ride.

She was never seen alive again.

Knapp told police that about an hour after Moore left, he went to Harold Seltzer’s Steakhouse, where he works as a kitchen manager, to complete inventory.

Police said they later discovered that Knapp took clothes to work with him and tossed them in a dumpster, which was taken to a landfill. After searching a landfill, police found the clothes, stained with Moore’s blood.

Police executed a search warrant at Knapp’s residence and recovered more evidence that led them to believe she was dead.

“Yes, there was blood that was identified as hers on our suspect’s pants, however there is lots of blood that was located during this investigation,” authorities said.

Friends say Moore and Knapp had a “turbulent” relationship and got “into fights quite often.”

We’ve got an exclusive sneak preview clip of tonight’s episode of ‘Ladies Who List’ for your viewing pleasure. In the clip, Tiffani and Tiana meet up to discuss Tiff’s new office and the grand opening party she’s planning. To Tiana’s surprise, Tiffani reveals she’s invited Robin after recently meeting with her to get to know her better — BUT it does turn out there is one person in their circle who won’t be welcome at the party. It turns out competing closing attorney Cristyl isn’t on the guest list — but Tiffani claims the lack of an invite has less to do with business and is more about just keeping things positive at the party, although she says she wasn’t really feeling the way Cristyl treated Robin at the last event.

Check out the clip below:

What do you think? Is Tiffani creating a bigger problem by excluding Cristyl from her event, rather than just pulling her aside to discuss the issue? What would you do if you were Tiffani?

Here’s what else to expect from the episode:

Tiffani holds a grand reopening of her law firm, only to find that Cristyl has been trying to steal one very important client — Kira! Meanwhile, Robin confronts a longtime client about why he gave his promised listing to another broker.

“Ladies Who List: Atlanta” airs Fridays at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on OWN.

Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis: 5 Things About Songwriting Duo That Helped Launch Janet Jackson’s Career

Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis: 5 Things About Songwriting Duo That Helped Launch Janet Jackson’s Career

Janet Jackson’s story couldn’t be told without Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, the production duo that worked on her from ‘Control’ to ‘Rhythm Nation’ to ‘The Velvet Rope.’ Here’s what you need to know.

Even though she’s grown up in the spotlight, the world will finally get to know Janet Jackson through her A&E/Lifetime documentary project, Janet. The first two installments air Friday (Jan. 28) and cover her life as the younger sister of the Jackson 5 to when she broke out on her own with 1986’s Control and 1989’s Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation 1814, per Billboard. Janet’s success on those two landmarks albums is due in no small part to Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis.

“The two records that Janet had done [1982’s Janet Jackson and 1984’s Dream Street] were both well-produced records,” Jimmy told Rolling Stone in 2015, “but we always felt they actually had none of her in it. It was just her showing up and singing. … We knew that Janet had a lot of attitude and a lot of feistiness just from watching her as a kid on the different TV stuff she did. Let’s create music that has that kind of attitude and let her run with it.”

The results speak for themselves. Control launched Janet’s struggling career, reached No. 1 on the Billboard 200, and gave Janet her first Hot 100 No. 1 with “When I Think Of You.” Since then, Janet has worked with Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis extensively, with their last collab being 2015’s Unbreakable. So, who exactly are these two production maestros?

Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis are one of the most successful writer-producer duos of the 1980s. Together, they’ve written 41 Top 10 hits in the U.S. and, according to the Songwriters Hall of Fame, “has more Billboard No. 1 hits than any other songwriting/production team in history.” In addition to their work with Janet, the two have written/produced songs for the Human League (“Human”), George Michael (“Monkey”), Boyz II Men (“On Bended Knee” and “4 Seasons of Loneliness”), Mariah Carey (“Thank God I Found You,” featuring Joe and 98 Degrees), Mary J. Blige (“No More Drama”), and Janet’s brother, Michael Jackson (“Scream,” with Janet Jackson). Both Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis were inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2017.

They’re From Minneapolis

James Samuel “Jimmy Jam” Harris III (b. Jun. 6, 1959) and Terry Steven Lewis (b. Nov. 24, 1956) are two of Minneapolis’s favorite sons. The two met while they were teenagers. “We were in a program called Upward Bound, and it was at the University of Minnesota,” Jimmy told ASCAP. “We both were in junior high school at the time, so it was like a summer program.” One day, Jimmy walked through the dorms when he peeked into an open door. Terry was “just blasting Kool & the Gang and playing the bass part along with Kool. I just remember thinking, “Ooh, that dude’s cool, whoever he is,” because I didn’t know him. His vibe was just very cool.”

“I remember finding Jimmy in the lunchroom playing the piano with a couple of girls around him. I said, ‘Aw, cool! He can play the keyboard!’” Jimmy joined Terry’s band to play the Upward Bound dance, and the two would continue to play together in a group called Flyte Time. However, that group would undergo some major changes, courtesy of Prince.

They Were Once Fired By Prince

Under the eye of Prince, Flyte Time transformed into The Time in 1981 and paired the group with his protégé, Morris Day. Morris Day and The Time reached success with songs like “The Bird,” “Cool,” and Jungle Love.” However, in 1982, Jimmy and Terry – who had begun writing songs and producing albums on their own – missed a San Antonio concert due to a freak blizzard in Atlanta. The legend is that Prince fired them for it, but the “Purple Rain” singer would deny that he was the one who pulled the trigger.

“I’m playing the bad guy,” Prince told Rolling Stone in 1990, “but I didn’t fire Jimmy and Terry. Morris asked me what I would do in his situation. You got to remember, it was his band.”

However, in the years since their termination, Terry and Jimmy have said The Purple One was the one who gave them their pink slips. They also have credited him for sharing his knowledge. “We learned that Prince is a genius,” Jam told Rolling Stone. “The studio experience overall couldn’t have been a better learning opportunity because he was very unorthodox, but it was very spontaneous. Prince was always the most prolific, always the quickest, and he was totally self-contained. He could engineer, write it, play it, he could do pretty much everything and do it efficiently. It was a great lesson to me, and a valuable lesson, on how to record.”

They Are Best Known For Their Work With Janet Jackson

“After we were released from the Time — so graciously by Prince — our plan was to do a Jam & Lewis album,” Terry Lewis told Variety in 2021. “We fell in love with [Tabu Records founder and legendary executive] Clarence Avant when he brought us in to do the S.O.S. Band, and allowed us to create as we saw fit. Anything he wanted us to do was a joy, we could develop any creative motif we chose. Then Janet came along, we began working with her, and stayed sidetracked.”

Janet’s success kept Jimmy and Terry busy. She returned to them for Control’s follow-up, 1989’s Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation 1814. “The idea for “Rhythm Nation” was you can dance, but we can also do something more intelligent,” Jam told Rolling Stone. “The blueprint for doing that is always Marvin Gaye’s What’s Going On album, which is my favorite album of all time. That was the spirit in which Rhythm Nation was done.”

The duo also worked with Janey on 1993’s janet., her first album to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. It’s best known for the number-one singles “That’s The Way Love Goes” and “Again,” as well as the risqué cover-art. “If someone says, ‘What’s your favorite Janet song,’ that’s the one,” Jam says of “That’s The Way Love Goes.”

Jimmy & Terry Sometimes Clashed With Janet

Jimmy and Terry worked with Janet on 1997’s The Velvet Rope, 2001’s All for You, 2004’s Damita Jo, and 2006’s 20 Y.O. They weren’t involved in Janet’s 2008 album, Discipline, but reunited for 2015’s Unbreakable.

As Janet’s 2022 documentary shows, per Billboard, the three of them are all strong-willed when it comes to making music. When recording “You Need Me,” Janet loses her temper after seeing the producers laughing. “What are you laughing about? Tell me what’s wrong, Jimmy,” she demands. “You’re sitting there laughing and I’m trying to get this right. You’ve got to tell me something, ’cause it’s like I keep singing this over and over, and you’re not telling me what I need!”

“There’s no energy! You can hear that sh– and the way that sounds! Ain’t no energy on the song!… You’re the singer, all you’ve got to do is sing!” he snaps back. However, in the present day, the three recognize that this was just part of the creative process.

Bawk! Bawk! Chicken Hands: The Internet Cares Naught As Khloe Kardashian Cryptically Cries Out Amid Tristan Thompson’s Latest Trollopy Tryst

Khloe Kardashian is getting klobbered on the internet following a very cryptic social media post.

The Good American founder took to Instagram on Jan. 27, where she posed for the camera from the inside of her car, showing off her curvaceous Kardashian assets, but social media watchdogs couldn’t help but notice the reality TV maven’s mysterious caption.

“Betrayal rarely comes from your enemies,” the 37-year-old wrote.


 

The cryptic message came shortly after Khloe’s catastrophic mess of a baby daddy, Tristan Thompson, was spotted canoodling with a mysterious woman in a viral TikTok video, and to make matters even worse, the unknown lady appeared to be sitting on the basketball star’s lap.

Yikes!

A few fans and close loved ones of Khloe poured into the mother of one’s comment section following the startling news, including her mother, Kris Jenner, who replied with a few simple heart emojis. Another social media user wrote:

“MAKE EM ALL SORRY.”

Now, while some folks sympathized with the star’s ongoing relationship woes, a large number of keyboard critics used the opportunity to klown Khloe to oblivion. One person wondered why Khloe’s hands were “so white” in comparison to her tan complexion, to which someone replied:

“She’s got Nosferatu hands 😂 that’s her real skin tone.”

A few social media goers commented on the youngest Kardashian’s long fingers, including comedian @Kevonstage who wrote:

“Khloe got scary fingers.”

Other internet jokesters compared Khloe’s lengthy fingers to chicken feet.

…… While a few critics appeared to be absolutely unsympathetic to the star’s ongoing drama with her ex-boyfriend, Thompson.

“Hey sweetie, your enemies literally can’t betray you because they’re your enemies and betrayal is the breaking of trust, all the best tho x,” wrote @ReubenBretton.

Ouch!

 

Thompson, who shares a 3-year-old daughter named True with Khloe, has been flooding headlines with his antics lately. Earlier this month, the Sacramento Kings forward confirmed rumors that he fathered a child with fitness model Maralee Nichols. The shocking news broke back in December 2021 after Nichols slammed the Canadian baller with a child support lawsuit, which was originally filed back in June of that year. According to the court documents, Nichols claimed that she slept with Thompson on his 30th birthday in March 2021. Sadly, Khloe and Thompson were dating at the time. The star requested a paternity test to confirm Nichols’ case, but the move ended up backfiring on him.

Following the positive paternity test, Thompson issued a sorry apology to Khloe that read:

“Khloé, you don’t deserve this. You don’t deserve the heartache and humiliation I have caused you. You don’t deserve the way I have treated you over the years. My actions certainly have not lined up with the way I view you. I have the utmost respect and love for you. Regardless of what you may think. Again, I am so incredibly sorry.”
