Rapper Lil’ Kim has serious issues with the new Biggie biopic, and is voicing her discontent. But is she beefin’ because the film shows the late rapper disrespecting her and their relationship?
Kim released this miffed statement articulating her feelings about the film’s portrayal of her:
“The film studio and producers involved were more concerned about painting me as a ‘character’ to create a more interesting story line instead of a person with talent, self-respect and who was able to achieve her own career success through hard work. Even though my relationship with Big was at times very difficult and complicated (as with most relationships we have all experienced at one time or another), it was also genuine and built on great admiration and love for each other. Regardless of the many lies in the movie and false portrayal of me to help carry a story line through, I will still continue to carry his legacy through my hard work and music.”
Finally! R. Kelly, singer, songwriter, and alleged pedophile, has divorced his wife of 11 years. This is the first we’ve ever heard of Kelly having a wife, but apparently his ex’s name is Andrea and they have three kids together. The couple will share joint custody of their children, daughters Jaya and Joann, and son Robert Jr. We sure hope their dad wasn’t responsible for potty training them!
Acquitted of child porn charges last year, R. Kelly was married once before, to then 15-year-old Aaliyah, in 1995. Their marriage was annulled after five months cuz, ya know, she was a kid. [Photo: GettyImages]
In the fall of 2007, Kanye West‘s mother, Donda, died of a possible heart attack following a massive plastic surgery procedure. Now the controversial doctor who performed the liposuction, tummy tuck and breast reduction on Kanye’s mama has landed in jail for a DUI. Dr. Jan Adams was nailed in June for driving his Jaguar the wrong way on the interstate. When cops nabbed him they discovered that the doctor – who was not board-certified when he operated on Mrs. West – had a blood alcohol level of 2.0 – twice the legal limit.
Adams was sentenced to serve a full year in jail for the charge yesterday, after pleading no contest. Kanye has not released any sort of statement about the drunk doc’s jail time, but we imagine it would involve numerous exclamation points and LOTS OF CAPS. [Photo: WireImage]

Remember that hottie who stared in Kanye West‘s “Flashing Lights” video? Here’s a reminder. Apparently Kanye handpicked the model, 19-year-old Philly native Sessilee Lopez, for his vid, and the two have been tight ever since. A source told The Sun that the two have been spending some intimate one-on-one time together, as well as hitting the town and partying. “Kanye was instantly smitten with Sessilee and it’s not hard to see why. She’s hot!” The over-eager anonymous pal gushed. “But it’s not just her looks that attracted Kanye – they get along really well and have a definite connection.”
We’ll have to wait and see if this relationship pans out into actual love – after all, he’s twelve years her senior. But we’ve already spotted one thing that could signal a match made in heaven – Sessilee has her own blog. [Photos: GettyImages. WireImage]
Our fingers are crossed that the rumor that Mariah is pregnant is indeed true. Could there be a more extravagant, decadent, ridiculous pregnancy than Queen Mimi’s? Imagine the butterfly baby clothes, the pampering, the baby belly shirts! When Mimi’s diva-ing for two, anything is possible.
Ellen DeGeneres added fuel to the fiery rumor this week when she asked Mariah, a guest on her show, if she was knocked up. The singer avoided the question with a non-answer, so Ellen then whipped out two glasses of champagne for toasting, leaving Mariah flustered. “I can’t believe you did this to me, Ellen,” she chuckled. “This is peer pressure!”
When Mrs. Cannon only pretended to drink the champagne, Ellen pointed the finger. “You’re pregnant,” she insisted, to which Mimi responded with more denial. So is it true? We’ll watch her belly (seen above on Sunday night) for clues! [E! Online. Photo: GettyImages]
Somewhere on a private jet floating above America, Kanye West is angrily typing into his Macbook Air: “OH NO YOU DIDN’T STEAL MY SUNGLASSES LOOK AND STICK FRINGE ON IT BEYONCE!!!!!” But alas, Mrs. Jay-Z has done just that, making a fugly look even fuglier on the set of her new video. Also steamed is undead child murderer Freddy Krueger, who can’t believe Beyonce would mimic his infamous knife-glove without his permission (see pic below).
Even with all the style-stealing going on, there is one thing Beyonce can take credit for: that horrendous triangle towered crown. That look, embarassingly enough, is all her own. [Photo: Splash News Online]
Kanye West is a simple man, and yearns for just two things in life – an internship at a fashion house to hone his second career choice, and “some pussy.” Does a man really even need anything else to survive?
Once his latest album drops next month, Kayne plans on interning with a designer (Louis Vuitton or Raf Simons, possibly) in hopes of perfecting his passion for fashion. We admire his desire to learn, but something tells us his ego might have a hard time running out for coffee and sorting mail.
Interestingly enough, the rapper is also having a hard time getting laid. Kanye kept a German audience waiting two hours at his concert last night, and then when he finally strolled onstage he announced, “I really need some p***y tonight!” Maybe he’ll meet another intern on the job who will oblige?
