Are Rihanna And Chris Brown Canoodling In France?

Rihanna and Chris Brown Canoodling in France
Rekindling love along the French Riviera makes for a great scene in a romantic movie. Only this isn’t a rom-com, it’s allegedly ex-lovers Rihanna and Chris Brown. The New York Post reports the two ex-lovebirds shared an intimate dinner a deux in Monaco. Adding grist to the rumor mill, Rihanna has been tweeting some rather cryptic messages like “#3words last night was beautiful,” and, “Touch down baby, help me pick out my fit,” indicating her “baby” had arrived. Not to mention the alleged dinner date she had with Chris in L.A. before her vacation. Read more…

The Game Says It’s His Fault The Wedding Is Off

The Game Calls Off His Wedding

There’s trouble in paradise, well, what could have been paradise. TMZ reports rapper The Game and fiance Tiffney Cambridge have called off their wedding 10 days before the couple was scheduled to walk down the aisle. What in the Sam Hill happened? Only four days ago TMZ reported that the Compton native was working with 51 Minds Entertainment to film a reality  show based on his road to jumping the broom. Apparently a lot can happen in four days. Today the no longer soon to be groom tweeted, “The rumors are TRUE. The wedding is OFF. It’s not her fault, it’s mine! She’s a GREAT woman, I just wasn’t man enough 2 see it through.” We hope this has nothing to do with the supposed reality show that was in the works. Read more…


Did Rihanna And Chris Brown Secretly Go On A Date Before Her Italian Vacay?

It’s true. Rihanna‘s milkshake brings all the boys to the yard. Word to Kelis. When it comes to her love life the live-life-on-the-edge starlet has been rumored to be dating pretty much every male celebrity with a pulse despite only having two boyfriends we know of for sure– Chris Brown and Matt Kemp. For the 656,702 time rumors have circulated that she and Breezy are secretly seeing each other. According to Perez Hilton (who has since deleted the post) the ex-couple had dinner, alone, before RiRi headed to Sardinia, Italy for a much needed vacation.

Snoop Dogg Forgets About The Weed On Him, Which Gets Him Busted In Norway

Snoop Busted For Weed in Norway

At this point we think Snoop Dogg’s name should be a synonym for weed. “Where’s the Snoop Dogg at?” or “This Snoop Dogg is for medicinal purposes only.” See how smoothly that works? Snoop is not going to be without his weed in the U.S., and apparently not in Norway either. TMZ reports Mr. Doggy Dogg is in Norway to perform at the Hove Festival, but upon arriving he was busted with weed at the airport in Kristiansand. The Cali rapper was detained, but was let go with a fine of 2,000 Norwegian Krone, which converts to roughly $1,980.13. He lucked up (if there’s such a thing in this situation) by having eight grams, anything less than 15 in Norway is only punishable by fine, which he paid right away. Gotta love Snoop. He gets busted with weed and pays his debt to society immediately. Read more…

Jennifer Hudson may not have won the third season of American Idol many moons ago, but she is definitely winning in her life as it stands now. J.

When word spread about her role as Winnie Mandela in the biopic Winnie, we were excited to see what the Oscar winning singer could do with the role of the anti-apartheid historical figure. Alongside Terrence Howard who plays Nelson Mandela it looks like J. Hud may have nailed it. Read more…

There’s one 11-year-old that keeps turning heads because of her free spirit, mega superstar parents and her newfound celebrity. Unfortunately, the attention isn’t always good for Willow Smith. Over the weekend she posted a picture to her Instagram account showing off, wait for it, a tongue ring.

Tony Parker Sues Club Where Drake And Chris Brown Brawl Occured For $20 Million

Tony Parker Sues Club for 20 Million

Tony Parker isn’t taking his scratched retina injury incurred from the Chris Brown and Drake brawl lightly. Can you blame the guy? He kind of needs to see well to play basketball. TMZ reports the San Antonio Spurs player filed a lawsuit in New York State Supreme Court against W.i.P. club for $20 million. In the lawsuit Parker accuses the club’s security of negligence for letting in both Drake and Chris Brown in at the same time. He also says the club knew there was “bad blood between Drake and Brown” and they continued serving alcohol to all parties involved in the melee despite their visible intoxication. Parker is trying to take ballin’ (and we’re not talking about on the court) to a whole different level. Read more…
