Sheila E. trended on social media for the wrong reasons on Wednesday. The 63-year-old singer and drummer commemorated the 5th anniversary of Prince‘s death by posting the wrong photo of him.

Sheila, real name Sheila Cecilia Escovedo, posted several photos of the pop icon on Wednesday. But one photo irked Prince fans.

Sheila recalled how Prince disliked “eating in front of people. But u could throw down when u wanted [to].” She added that he used to cook eggs for her, and “I made the pancakes.”

Hardcore Prince fans were quick to point out that the man in the photo was not Prince.

Fans identified the man in the 2017 image as singer Mandy Romao in Miami, Fla.

One annoyed fan wrote: “How are you not going to know your own friend… that’s not Prince.”

Sheila acknowledged her mistake and updated the caption: “EVERYONE IS TRIPPIN, YES I KNOW ABOUT THE PICTURE. But my words are true.”

However, Prince’s inner circle took the opportunity to call out Sheila for clout chasing.

Prince’s NPG sax player, Adrian Crutchfield, told Page Six last year, “After Prince died, it seems like everything she does is focused around Prince or his legacy — and it’s strange, because we never saw her at Paisley Park.”

Prince’s “Purple Rain” co-star and muse — Apollonia Kotero, 61, also dragged the pop drummer. She described Sheila as “desperate to be relevant.”

“Prince refused to acknowledge you for five years before his death because of your lies… He sent you legal letters as you were slandering him,” she said when Sheila E. released a tribute song, “Lemon Cake,” last year.

Apollonia is best known as the lead singer for the all-girl group Apollonia 6.

Sisters With Voices, aka SWV say they plan to use their famous Michael Jackson sample during an upcoming Verzuz lipsync battle with Xscape.

Tamara “Taj” Johnson (left) and Leanne “Lelee” Lyons (center) joined “TMZ Live” on Thursday and were asked if SWV will play their hit, “Right Here (Human Nature Remix),” when the R&B group battles Xscape on Saturday.

TMZ suggested there would be “potential backlash” from the “cancel culture” if SWV played the song during the Verzuz.

Taj and Lelee see no issue with playing the sample. They say they didn’t even pay Michael for the sample of his 1983 hit, “Human Nature,” and they wouldn’t be successful if not for Michael.

The ladies say it’s not their job to judge Michael by canceling his music.

SWV fans agree. One Twitter user wrote:

“The people with this alleged “potential backlash” won’t even be tuned into the Verzuz so this will be a non issue.”

Another user tweeted: “If they DIDN’T use the MJ sample there would be an even bigger blacklash!!!!”

And a third wrote: “People still trying to create anti MJ controversy in 2021?”

Photo may have been deleted


Floyd Mayweather Jr and YouTube star Jake Paul got into a heated exchange at the press conference for Floyd’s upcoming boxing match with Logan Paul.

The 44-year-old champion boxer is annoyed since boxing fans say his fight with 26-year-old Logan is fake.

If you recall, Logan’s brother, Jake, 24, knocked out former NBA player Nate Robinson last year.

In a video posted on Thursday, Floyd suggested a boxing match between himself and Jake.

Jake tells him, “Don’t be calling [event promoter] Al Haymon. Let’s make it happen.”

“I’m my own boss,” FLoyd replies angrily.

Then Jake snatched Floyd’s cap off his head and shouted “Got your cap!” before fleeing with Floyd in hot pursuit.

Chaos ensued as Floyd’s security chased after them and separated the two combatants.

Question: Do you think the upcoming fight between Floyd and Logan Paul is fake?

Be warned: the video contains excessive profanity — mostly by Floyd who never got his cap back.
