Will and Jada NOT Divorcing… Nick Ashford Succumbs to Throat Cancer

Posted: August 23, 2011 in Pour Out a Lil Liquor, That's the Way Love Goes

 

So tragedy actually didn’t strike twice today. In a recent statement released to address rumors that started making rounds this morning, Black America’s favorite (and only) married couple says they are NOT separating. After 13 years of marriage, Will and Jada are still going strong.

Did you hear that Black women? There’s still hope!

And just as tragic as the thought of Will and Jada splitting, Nickolas Ashford (of Ashford & Simpson) died today after a long battle with throat cancer. He was 70-years-old.

Ashford and his wife Valerie Simpson had successful careers with Motown and Warner Bros. In addition to their own hits, they wrote songs for legends like Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross and most recently, Amy Winehouse’s “Tears Dry On Their Own.” Ashford leaves behind his wife, two daughters and plenty of old school hits.
