Looks like there's trouble on the Mary J Blige-Jay Z tour already. MediaTakeOut.com has learned that members of Mary's camp and members of Jay Z's camp are sqaubbling over the amount of money each artist will receive.
One insider told MediaTakeOut.com, "[They] announced the tour without completely ironing out all the details and that's causing problems ... It shouldn't cause the tour to be cancelled or anything like that, but there's definitely some hard feeling on both sides."
Are we gonna have another Best Of Both Worlds fiasco??? Is Ta Ta gonna end up macing Kendu??? Lawd hammercy....
neither one needs the money so it appears to me to just be ego tripping!!
and since when do u agree to do a tour without negotiating a contract? Go get em Jay!!
I was looking forward to seeing this concert...what is it with Jay that when he colabs with someone...it's a huge mess?
<3 HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY <3
Thats not a good look.
I mean if this is true, this dude can't go on tour with nobody and get tha hell along. *** man put the attitude to rest. Yall still paid.
Two Diva's, Queens, whatever fighting, nothing new.
Hmm....here's a good idea...split it in half lol.
awwww drama drama drama
IT WAS BOUND TO HAPPEN...J Z SHOULD GET THE LESSER HALF HELL HE HAS THREE TIMES AS MUCH MONEY AS MARY...
Shoulda known somebody would be the greedy one! My opinion...It's probably Jay being a hoggy newton!
DANG MARY I THOUGHT U DIDN'T LIKE DRAMA!! AND BESIDES...THEY ARE PROBABLY TALKING ABOUT DOING A ALBUM TOGETHER WHO KNOWS??.....M.T.O. LOVES TAKING THINGS OUTTA TEXT!!
Good pic, but I am sure it has nothing to do with this story.

The music industry is full of crooks. Thats why its best to establish your own camp and work with the artist that are under your label. Didn't the south teach you anything. Independent is the way to go. You make more money going gold independently that you do going platnum with a deal. Just ask Danity Cane and in a few months ask the boy band and donnie.
She is gorgeous. I was surprised to see her nice profile on a site with hot pics. It seems called 'Rich kiss.c om'. Was it her? Is she lonely?
JAY HAD BETTER CUT HIS LOSSES RIGHT NOW AND DUMP HERE TONE DEAF ***.
HE CAN REPLACE HER WITH AT LEAST 3 EXTRA R&B SINGERS THAT SOUND WAY BETTER .
I don't believe it. MTO stop making up $hit!
That picture has nothing to do with that story. This is MTO's azz making *** up again like they normally do!
Can they start the tour first MTO before you start talking about problems
Don't worry. Thet're good friends and will work it out. Get to the show early as "The-Dream" is the opening act!!! That song "Falsetto" is da bomb!!!!
JAY Z SHOULD GET WAY MORE MONEY.... REAL TALK...
maybe 50-50?.... math is hard huh?
They *** announce these tours until all the i's are dotted and t's crossed. Egos do take over.
IF THIS IS TRUE, I'M STARTING TO BELIEVE THAT JAY-Z MIGHT BE THE PROBLEM ON THESE TOURS.
I WONDER IF HE HAS MONEY ISSUES WITH BEYONCE WHEN, HE MAKES APPEARANCES ONSTAGE WITH HER WHEN SHE IS SINGING ONE OF THEIR SONGS DURING HER PERFORMANCE.
The Industry is a shady business.
Um okay, maybe they should be payed equally why does one have to be paid more then the other. Problem solved that was easy
WHy the fu(*** is he touring with her old *** anyway. MAry is alright but ***.a.s act like she's a legend. He need's to do it wit B!!! THat *** would be sold out ASAP!
It's obvious he is the issue. First him and R. Kelly and now Mary. What is up with that?
All I got to say is if the paper ain't right why even play like that!
In that picture they look like two camels fighting over water in the dessert... (Sorry)
@ Prissy: Hmmm.. there must be a real good reason why He DON'T wanna tour with B= le$$ money :)
I don't know if I believe this; they are going to work this out if this is true. They been friends for YEARS!!!
No one has shown as much ignorance on a tour as R. Kelly has. All artists should learn from his *** ***!
You can't put two big super stars on the same bill. This S$#& never works so I don't know why they keep trying to do it.
I just got my tickets for this show and they cost me 175 per ticket! Soooo the show better go on! Love both of them but Love Mary More!
OH COME ON NOW! I DON'T BELIEVE THIS FOR ONE SECOND. THEY ARE BOTH PROFESSIONALS.
I think everybody saw this coming....
***, thats a bad *** of Mrs. Mary
dre of Caramelhoneys.com
Jay is a greedy ***! Mary has takin' the role of Kelis.
i hope they work it out...please dont fall out over some change!
OK, first of all they said their "people" are fighting over money. Stop believing everything you read Black people. And why are some of y'all so quick to throw dirt on Jay-Z's name? How sad you must be. Get it, they're both RICH with or without the tour. Will there be egos, ofcourse, they're both big names, but trust when I tell you, he ain't the man, the media(takeout) so often tries to paint him out to be.
FREE YOUR MIND!
I hope this is not going to be no R-Kelly/Neyo type $hit. I am really looking forward to this concert.
IT KILLS ME WHEN PEOPLE SAY, THE ARTIST PEOPLE ARE FIGHTING OVER THE MONEY.
IF THE ARTIST SAYS, YES I'LL ACEEPT SO AND SO AMOUNT, THEN THAT WOULD BE THE END OF THE DISCUSSION. THEIR PEOPLE WOULDN'T GO BACK AND FORTH IF THE ARTIST AGREES TO AN AMOUNT.
SO, THE ARTIST DOES HAVE A VOICE IN THE NEGOTATIONS.
LOL, MTO. can yall stop with the lawd hammercy's..yall killing me..lol
Let's not fight over $$$ folks! Happy Valentines Day!

Dam He Cant Go On Tour Wit Nobody, Oh Wellz Hope It All Works Out.
~!~ Happy Valentines Day 2 All~!~
ppl like u are startin to get on my last nerve stop w/the copyin and pastin and advertising ur *** stupid sites!!
Jay is the problem, his ego is too big to share the stage w/anyone else unless its his ho behonce. How about thet split the $$ half ways?? do u really need a genius to come up w/that?
Don't believe it. That is worked out before they even decide to do a concert
I hate how MTO does that! Like if their is trouble between two people they get pictures of their faces mashed up! Or like when they said Keyshia Cole was a *** and had a picture of her in a suit! UGH!
Doubt it! That would probably just be too much. Working with someone your in a relationship with is irritating. Plus the mystery of the two of them is what makes them so hot because eveybody wants to know what's going on.
Also, Beyonce' sells much more ticket's then Mary could dream and they cost much more =)
Cause you can't knock the hustle LoL -B.
I doubt they are standing there talking about MONEY! For all we know, they're discussing Pepsi vs. Coke!
Well if (and I mean if) this happens to be true I do remember a certain poster, I believe his name is BRUTALLYHONEST, who stated when the tour was announced that money would be a factor within the first six months....
That's Jigga for ya, the new Berry Gordy, trying his best to get over on black people. Hmmm, how come you never see any WHITES having a problem with Jay-Z's business practices????
Jay had better give Mary her money before she whoops his assss.
Mary should pull out.
If it starts bad won't get no better.
If he's gonna mess her around in the front
he's gonna mess her around in the back.
Run Mary Run
I don't see how these two can tour together who is going to be the headline act? Jay thinks that he is ruler of the music world and need to calm down cause if any of this true then Jay is definitely one that has started a pattern first R-Kely and now this??

mary looks old
I GOT MY TICKET AND CANT WAIT .....THAT SHOW IS GOING TO BEE OFF THE CHAIN..THE DC PRESALE TICKETS WENT ON SALE YESTERDAY......WE ARE 6TH ROW SECTION 3!
WELCOME TO THE PARTY LIFE!
MEDIATAKE OUT IS A MESS....THAT SHOW IS GOING TO BE A SUCCESS!
If this is true, which im sure it's not, it is healthier and more beneficial for them to hammer out differences before the tour gets started...This is how all successful engagements happen in the first place...and it not uncommon to see great people bicker to have better outcomes of success .......God lead mary and she has never been an orchestrator of confussion and drama.......this is just a picture....where lies can be said to make it appear anyway one chooses.....
pay her jayz dam we love you bother
This tour NEEDS to happen...
I hope this is NOT true ! ! !
Joe the Camel really gets on my nerves......Mary do your own tour and forget him!!!
Sound like a repeat of what happened with R. Kelly!!!
Did y'all see how he kept interrupting rihanna during her accepting speech...he's such a ***! Could somebody PLEASE tell him that he ain't cute!!!
Didn't the SAME THING happen on the Jay-Z/R. Kelly Tour??
This tour is DOOMED to be CANCELLED!!!
Oh well, let em both get paid. Jay gave her the headliner, so ***. Let him get more money. Her new album isn't that great anyway.. Jay's album was.. OKAY at best...
Why does this tour need to happen? Marylands tour date is on Mar26.. Lets see if i'll go..
Okay...there was problems on the R. Kelly and Jay-z tour and now there's money trouble on the MJB and Jay-Z tour. Who is the common denominator here? Jigga!!! He's got issues.
As you can see it's no longer about the ART and PASSION for music. It's about making a quick buck. Why is this even an issue?
Looks like it's a simple case of:
"*** THE FANS, I won't my money"
what big deal lost tour. how they do that?
Come on people, think for yourselves. JZ has already been burned by R. Kelly, why would he enter into another tour without getting the money straight. He has a lot of business savvy, he wouldn't make a mistake like that, and neither would Mary. They are good friends that go way back. They make a good combo, one of the best singers and one of the best rappers. Sounds like wishful thinking on somebody's part.
Mary's new joint is banging. She has come a long way since the 411.
time will tell
Tickets go on sale tomorrow and you better believe I'll have some tickets. That show will be off the hook. I went to the cancelled R kelly and JAy show years ago and still had a good time.
Can I get a Encore?? Do you want more?
n[SPAM]oooo JIGGA..play everyone else bro but NOT Mary..i hope they work it out, i was looking forward to this tour...
DEJA-EFFING-VU Moving right along
Man we just can't get along for nothing can we. Is always some kinda drama going on. First it was R.Kelly and Ne-Yo, now its these two.
MTO stop spreading lies
They need to get that settled BEFORE touring. Look what happend between Luther Vandross and Anita Baker. That was a mess.
Mary can't sell out arenas while Jay can so he should get a larger cut. It's not 50/50 here and *** be, but the details should've been worked out before the tour was announced. Get everything in writing.
OMG I really am lookin forward 2 seein them in atl and they are like my IDOLS! If this is true I really hope they work things out to where errbody is happy!
yall better stop fighting
like kids and get it together
i say that he would find something to fight about. That's what he does besides rapping ceoing,and making money.
Mary is soo underpaid. Shes been in the game for a min. Jay z real talk aint all that!
two classic acts they should split the money down the middle.
I TOLD YA'LL. Go back and read the article that MTO had about this when it first came out. I said that she better read the contract. UM UM UM.
GIVE THE QUEEN WHATS HERS, DON'T PLAY YOU KNOW THAT ANT RIGHT JIGGA .
HE LIVES,AND WE CAN TO
WTF ya'll talking about MTO....Ya'll just trying to start some ***!!

not that i don't love b but ummm you better go wiki ms. blige:
she has sold more than 40 million records and over 10 million singles worldwide. she also received eight Grammy Awards for her work. she writes,acts,She is a spokesperson and investor for Carol's Daughter beauty products. She also has her own record label called Matriarch Records, which is distributed through Geffen.
Bey's just a baby compared to Mary! you gotta respect the queen of hip-hop soul :-) whom still has many loyal fans.
Mary and Jay are really cool entertainers. I don't really believe this story but if it is real, then I hope that they can work something out with their managers or something.
I dont believe this, but it could be true
Google Str8 Business
Cadburry Kiss I remember that.
You were right on the money with that one.
AND YO Business Stop blowing up the boards with your whack azz spam trying to sell another whack *** talentless ghetto CD. Yall fools sending the music industry down the *** drain. "Life or Death Entertainment"... Can we spell *** G.H.E.T.T.O
Not even the *** CD cover is original.
The Po House in the background...been saw that..
Camouflage Gear...Done saw that
Holding a stack of singles in your hand... saw that at the skrip clubb
Using "Death" in your record label. Been done saw it.
I dont even wanna hear the whack *** already been done over and over tracks that would come out some ghetto studio.
I doubt this very seriously. MJB is the QUEEN of Hip Hop R & B, Camel face is known as the #1 Rap Artist of all time for some dumb *** reason. His rap lyrics don't make sense....truth be told. Anyone that knows REAL rap skills and talent, will also know that TUPAC was and will always be known as the FORREAL #1 Rapper. Anyway, MJB don't even have to talk Jay Z let alone argue about some *** money. Because the music and entertainment business. She's not NEW to it, she's true to it. So once again I believe this is a MTO B.S. posting, just to get peoples attention.
Prissy you sound foolish, none of that *** B put out is deeper than Mary...Mary is for grown people! And J Z azz is older that Mary, ...yet I want to see this concert...it would be hot so I hope they get it together...Mary *** is classic..."My Life, Share My World will be forever on my ipod, and she made those before there were ipods! I can't remember the name of any of B's cd's????
#1 from the 60621
And that's all!
They need to squash that. Them 2 on tour together is refreshing to this dry *** music industry right now
Like I said before, Mary has come along way since the 411 and she is HOTTER THAN EVER so JZ would be a fool to act a fool with Mary. Even his girl Bey would be like, Fool, get that girl and go on tour and act like you've got some sense, LOL True music lovers will pay top dollar to see Mary and Jigga.
*** ALREADY BEEFIN'................SAD :(
I think Jay is hard to work for on a tour is all. Money to me does have alot to do with to me. I think money is his driving force. He didnt get where he has by not making money and lots of it
HERE'S THE MILLION DOLLAR QUESTION - WHY WASN'T THE CONTRACT NEGOTIATED AND SIGNED "BEFORE" THEY ANNOUNCED THE TOUR? ATTORNEYS SHOULD HAVE BEEN PRESENT TO NEGOTIATE WHO GETS WHAT...BOTH PARTIES MUTUALLY AGREE, SIGN THE CONTRACT AND GET THE TOUR STARTED - SIMPLE AS THAT.
lol i wonder who needs it more
both have more than enough. they should split the profits down the midlle and keep it the fu*k movin.
