*It’s been a fun, but bumpy season for celebrity hairstylist China Upshaw.

In an exclusive interview with partner the LA Hair cast member reveals that viewers are seeing a side of her that isn’t completely accurate.  Find out what the REAL issue is between her and cast mate Angela Stevens and why there are so many brawls this season. 

theJasmineBRAND: L.A. Hair has been an eventful time this season, what would you say would be one of the things that you didn’t like about what you saw so far?

China: Uh, the fact that they are portraying me to be a crazy person. I’m not crazy…maybe a little sensitive.

theJasmineBRAND: What has been one of the hardest things for you to watch?

China: This last episode, because I was trying not to cry and I said that I’m trying not to cry and that I’m imagining myself at DisneyLand with the tall man, but all I said was ‘I’m at Disney Land with the Tall Man’ , so it sounded looney and crazy ya know.

theJasmineBRAND: Now, we’ve seen a lot of physical fights on the show this year more than any other season, why do you think that’s happened?

China: Well, I think we all are getting to that point were we’ve reached our breaking point. We’re just tired of talking and now its action and now we have a new cast member whose patience is shorter than a lot of ours.

*Earlier this year EURweb partner reported that Jay-Z, Rick Ross & Dr. Dre were sued by gospel singers Clara Shepherd Warrick and Jimmy Lee Weary.

The singers claimed the rappers infringed on their copyright by using their 1976 song “I’m So Grateful (Keep in Touch)” in the rappers song “3 Kings.” They even alleged that their song had been forever defaced by “unsavory language.”

The rappers fired back claiming the duo didn’t own the copyright to the 1976 song and that they signed over all rights to Universal Music, who gave them permission to use the song in their song.

The legal battle has been going on ever since, until the federal court judge came back with his decision on August 5th. Visit  for details on the courts decision, along with both songs in question.
