Here’s what we’re talking about over our coffee this chilly Monday morning:
Get ready to hear the real story behind one of the world’s biggest girl groups. Former Destiny’s Child manager Brian K. Moore has revealed that he is producing two biopics about the iconic supergroup about their orgins, their break ups, and their music. “It’s the true story of what really happened and how it all came to be,” Moore said. “It’s a story that only myself or one of the girls in the group could tell.” Moore says he hopes to begin production by the end of the year.

Could Denzel Washington be coming to Fox’s Empire? We hope so! Show creator Lee Daniels posted a pic of Denzel and himself on Instagram with a plea to the actor to join TV’s hottest new show. “Trying to talk this one into doing a guest star on #empire,” Daniels wrote. “Denzel hasn’t done television in 30 years. But he saw the pilot and said, ‘I’ve got to be a part of this.'” We have our fingers crossed! [Hello Beautiful]
In the midst of all of his other legal drama, Chris Brown has found himself to be the victim of identity theft. Brown was given an inmate ID after being arrested back in April but that I.D. was stolen and sold to an unauthorized third party. Now Chris Breezy is in the middle of yet another criminal investigation, only this time, he’s the victim. [TMZ]
Good news coming from the family of the late Martin Luther King Jr. Brothers Martin Luther III and Dexter Scott King have dropped part of their lawsuit against their sister, Bernice King. The siblings were suing one another over having Dr. King’s belongings housed in the King Center for Non-Violent Social Change, of which Bernice is CEO. According to Dexter, he and his brother had a “change of heart.” However, there is still a pending lawsuit over the ownership of Dr. King’s Nobel Peace Prize and Bible. [HuffPo]
