Diddy Says



Mike Tyson Will Not Face Charges


Mike Tyson will be ringing in the New Year a free man. The LA City Attorney ruled there was insufficient evidence to charge Mike for beating the living hell out of a photog at LAX last November [click here if you missed that].  At the time, both men accused the other of initiating the fight, but only one of them ended up needing stitches.

I Heard



that Tyra Banks didn't quit her show. It was cancelled.

Diddy Suing Over Sales Loss



Fashion mogul Sean Combs filed a $2.5 million lawsuit against the landowners of his flagship Sean John store in New York, blaming them for SJ sales nosediving over 50%.

Teddy Riley Releases a Statement



"Due to recent events, I am compelled to respond in detail to accusations made against me, by my daughters.

I love my Daughters, but I will not allow my children to disrespect me in my home. Contrary to what I have been accused of, I would never beat my children.

Perhaps, I should have been a stronger disciplinarian as they were growing up. I worked very hard so that my children would want for nothing."

Diddy is Not Going out for New Years Eve



But he is offering free rides for those of you who are. For the second year in a row Diddy's "Safe Rides" program is offering subway tokens and taxi vouchers to the drunken masses on New Year's Eve in New York City and Las Vegas. Diddy says, "New York stands as the world's icon for a New Year's Eve celebration and Las Vegas is the biggest party destination in the country. By bringing this program to both of these great cities we will continue to show the rest of the country that a sophisticated holiday celebration doesn't end when the ball drops, but when everyone gets home safely."

And He'd Do it Again


Yesterday word leaked out about the Christmas Eve eve fight between Teddy Riley and his two adult daughters. The skirmish played itself out on Twitter with the girls attacking their father and his girlfriend leading up to the beatdown. And before deleting his Twitter page, Teddy made no apologies for what he'd done.

They Say


Tyra Show employees found out she was ending her talk show the same time you did. Snitches on set say Tyra notified the press she was leaving before even telling her staff! They say she did the same thing when she packed up and moved the show from LA to New York. Crew members who made the cross-country trek are said to be PRETTY pissed off.

Beverly Johnson Sued for Palimony


Supermodel Beverly Johnson's ex-boyfriend is suing her for $5 million dollars. Mark Burk claims he and Beverly agreed to act as man and wife and split whatever she earned during their relationship. Mark also claims Beverly promised to take care of him for life in the style which he'd become accustomed. Bev dumped his ass in 2008 and in his suit, Mark claims Beverly has not kept up her end of the bargain.

Teddy Riley Jumped on his Daughters



I would say Teddy Riley gave his daughters whuppings, but they're over eighteen and too old for whuppings. Anyway, on December 23rd in LA, Teddy's daughter Taja called the cops and told them Teddy stomped, beat and bashed her and her older sister and threatened to kill them with both a Rock Band video game guitar. The daughters were granted a restraining order and Teddy has to stay at least 100 yards away from them.  Their next court date is set for January.

Mary J Blige Living With Her Husband's Ex?



She is according to Hollywood Street King! HSK, who was the first to break the Mary J / Kendu fight story, says Kendu used the Bible to separate Mary from her own family, while moving his family in, including his ex-wife!

This May Pose a Problem


Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't a major component of "The Rihanna Experience" her super sexy stage gear?  I'm just saying, because she's getting paid $500,000.00 to perform on New Year's Eve in the United Arab Emirates and the strict Muslim country has told her she'll have to cover up during her performance. Of course she agreed, but what's that going to leave them with? Her beautiful singing voice?

Start Snitching



Earlier this month rapper [<--does he still rap?] Nelly's St. Louis home was burglarized. An unknown intruder entered through a locked window and left with a duffel bag full of stuff. Though three of Nelly's people were in the house at the time, only one person saw and confronted the burglar, who is described as a male in his 20s or 30s[<--what the hell kind of description is that?] Anyway, Nelly is offering $10,000.00 to anyone who has information leading to the arrest of perps. If you know who did it and want to make a $10,000.00 come up, call the St. Louis Regional CrimeStoppers Tip Hotline 866-371-TIPS (8477).

Did Elite Put Keyshia on Blast?




On Christmas Day several of Keyshia Cole's fans Tweeted her sister Elite asking what Keyshia bought her and Neffe's kids for Christmas. Elite answered honestly, plus had a few other choice things to say and  promptly took heat from Keyshia's fans who called her an ungrateful little bitch.

Gilbert Arenas in Gun Trouble


The NBA is investigating Washington Wizard Gilbert Arenas for keeping unloaded guns in his locker. The NBA's collective bargaining agreement allows for players to legally possess firearms but prohibits them at league facilities or when traveling on any league-related business. Gilbert says he brought the guns to work after the birth of his daughter because he "need them" anymore. "It happened like Dec. 10. Right after my daughter was born," Arenas said. "I decided I didn't want the guns in my house and around the kids anymore, so I took them to my lockbox at Verizon Center. Then like a week later, I turned them over to team security and told them to hand them over to the police, because I don't want them anymore. I wouldn't have brought them to D.C. had I known the rules. After my daughter was born, I was just like, I don't need these anymore."

Umm. Ok.

Does anybody but me think those guns had something to do with the alleged affair between Gilbert's finance and Shaquille O'Neal? Like he either brought the guns to shoot Shaq or he had to remove them from his house to keep from shooting his fiance?

D Wade and Gabrielle Union Chill on Miami Beach

Since Alicia Keys and Swizz Beats made it cool to come clean about who you date before your divorce is final, the-not-yet-divorced Dwyane Wade and  his lady love Gabrielle Union decided to take a "coming out" stroll on Miami Beach over the Christmas Holiday. 


Seems like it was just yesterday a very pissed off Gabrielle was blasting bloggers for embellishing her relationship with the then very married D Wade. The way she was going off you would never have guessed she was lying through her teeth [click here and here if you missed that].

You Know You Play Too Much


when you Tweet that you're going to jail and nobody believes you. Grand Hustle comedian and prolific Tweeter Lil Duval does nothing but tell jokes on his Twitter all day. So on Christmas Eve when Duval tweeted about getting pulled over and going to jail for warrants, none of his Twitter followers believed him even though he Twit Pic'd pictures all the way. Not until he didn't show up to host Jingle Bash 2009 in Atlanta did anybody believe he wasn't crying wolf.  And yes. That's his real mugshot.

Mary J Kicked Kendu's Ass



Mary J Blige had her album release party the other night and she and her husband Kendu got into a fight. Now according to The Hollywood Street King, it had to do with Mary's brother, Mary's husband, The VIP and some groupie chicks. HSK says Mary threw her brother out of the VIP and threw a drink in her husband's face before biting him on his wrist. Other reports say the fight was between Kendu and Mary's brother and that Mary was defending her brother by socking her husband in the mouth. Whatever happened, one things for sure. Mary J Blige jumped on her husband at her album release party.

Kanye's First Apperance Since He Showed out at the MTV Awards

Kanye surprised the audience at Kid Cudi's concert in LA last night and after going into a diatribe about how some artists are scare to stand up for what they believe in, dropped this verse : “I sold my soul to the devil, I know it’s a crappy deal/ At least it came with a few toys like a Happy Meal/ I’m spaced out dog, I be on that moon talk/ I wonder if God asked Mike how to Moonwalk.”

Et Tu Tyrese?


Add Tyrese to the growing list of people who think Jay Z is a part of the Illuminati. Early this morning Tyrese posted this cryptic tweet, which has since been removed, along with a link to a video on Worldstarhiphop, also removed, that claimed to show proof Jay Z was part of the secret society. For the record, I never took that stuff seriously, but with Tyrese deleting the Tweet and the video mysteriously being taken down, I will admit it gave me the creeps.

Lil Wayne Detained Last Night



You know the drill. Lil Wayne's tour bus was pulled over in Texas near the Mexico border last night and the cops found weed. How many times is this going to happen before Wayne hires a nondescript car to trail the buses and carry the weed? I'm just saying.
