*A blog called All About the Tea is citing a “rock solid source” who claims that “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Porsha Williams is dating a married man – and that he’s a billionaire oil tycoon who is the chairman and CEO of several oil companies.

His name, according to the blog, is Bashorun Jide Omokore and he has strong political ties in Nigeria. Also, he’s already gifted Porsha a half million dollar custom Rolls Royce.

The only problem is that Bashorun has a wife, according to the blog. And the wife is not happy that her husband has a side piece.

According to the website, Bashorun’s wife is Angela Ebagua, a Nigerian bank executive. The unnamed source says Angela knows about Porsha and has sent a warning that she’s ready to fight for her marriage – literally.

“His wife said that if Porsha comes back to Nigeria, she’s gonna beat her a**,” the source said.

*”Law & Order: SVU” continues to “rip from the headlines” this season, with Wednesday’s episode borrowing from the recent domestic violence scandals rooted in elevator surveillance footage.

In this Wednesday’s episode, titled “American Disgrace,” famous basketball star Shakir “The Shark” Wilkins is accused of rape by a PR employee from his clothing line.

According to The Huffington Post, “SVU” borrows from the Ray Rice elevator assault and the Jay Z/Solange elevator fight to show just how ambiguous scandals can be when there’s no audio and only raw camera footage.

“I’m trying to keep the show 10 minutes ahead of the news,” “SVU” showrunner Warren Leight told HuffPost Entertainment earlier this month. Leight told us that he wanted to keep the series in tune with the manner in which news leaks now, which is coming more and more from security camera footage released by TMZ (on the show it’s call LMZ).

“I loved the idea of just a silent black and white scene, then sound goes out,” Leight said. “You kinda wanna know what’s going on.”

The showrunner, who wrote the episode with Julie Martin, revealed that it also tackles the Donald Sterling scandal via Stacy Keach’s character .

Watch a teaser or the episode below:

“Law & Order: SVU” airs Wednesday at 9:00 p.m. ET on NBC.
