Motivational speaker duo splitting up

 Sunday, October 16, 2011
South Florida-based Christian rapper and motivational speaker Tamara Lowe kicked off the area’s latest high-stakes divorce after filing against her husband of 24 years, fellow famed motivational speaker Peter Lowe.

 Tamara Lowe, who claims to have been a drug dealer at age 12 before taking the straight and narrow, and Peter made a fortune co-hosting their “Get Motivated” business seminars in places like the American Airlines Arena in Miami and the BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise.

The seminars usually feature major celebrities such as former N.Y. Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Super Bowl-winning quarterback Joe Montana and former first lady Laura Bush.
The divorce filing, in Palm Beach County, describes the lifestyle enjoyed by the Lowes, who have two teenage children, as lavish. They once paid $23 million for a house on the beach in Manalapan.
Neither of the Lowes’ attorneys returned calls, and messages left at Tamara’s place weren’t returned. One legal eagle familiar with the case said the couple is desperately trying to keep their split under the radar.
“The lawyers are letting them negotiate the settlement,” the source said. “Their best interest is to make sure no nasty details leak.”
Tamara Lowe is a frequent guest on Christian television’s The 700 Club and is known to deliver her message in unprepared rhymes, rap-style.
Emilio Estefan
A Vietnam vet has filed a federal breach-of-implied-contract lawsuit in New Jersey federal court against Miami Beach entertainment mogul Emilio Estefan.
John Jacobs, 64, a Trenton, N.J., handyman, says he hoped to sell a bilingual reality TV show concept to Estefan as early as 1999.
“It combined singing and acting and 40 other tasks,” Jacobs said.
But, Jacobs says, Estefan strung him along for 12 years, and that for that, he deserves $5 million.
“I could’ve sold it to someone else, but they kept saying they wanted it,” Jacobs said.
Jacobs says he followed instructions from Estefan staffers when he traveled to Miami at his own expense 13 times to meet singer Gloria Estefan’s husband. Every time, something supposedly came up at the last minute, and he couldn’t meet Estefan face-to-face.
“They used to comp me at Bongos for my trouble,” Jacobs said.
One employee at Estefan Enterprises who didn’t want to be named called Jacobs “a nutty stalker.” Estefan could not be reached for comment.
Look who’s lovey-dovey now!
Miami Dolphins star receiver Brandon Marshall spent the team’s bye weekend working on his marriage to wife Michi. The two jetted off to the Turks and Caicos, where he insisted on being photographed with Michi.
In April, she was arrested by Broward County Sheriff’s deputies in the couple’s Southwest Ranches home for allegedly stabbing him during a dispute.
She was never charged formally, and Marshall blamed the dispute on his borderline personality disorder.
