Watch what you say about Usher's woman.

According to syndicated host Tom Joyner, the R&B singer recently threatened to "whup my a-" after Joyner joked about rumored tension between Foster and Usher's mom, Jonetta Patton.

Joyner said Usher called him off-air to complain about claims that Foster urged him to "fire" Jonetta as his manager.

Usher allegedly also called WBLS host WendyWilliams and Hot-97's Angie Martinez to "ask them to lay off Tameka."

Bobby Brown, whose divorce from Whitney Houston became final in April, is back to his bachelor ways.

"I'm dating, so it's not like I'm single," Brown, 40, told PEOPLE mag at Stereo by the Shore in Southampton, N.Y. on Saturday. Asked whom he was dating, he replied, "My friend," and looked over at the woman holding his hand. A source at the club identified Brown's companion as Alicia Etheridge. She was formerly the president of the M. Gray Music Academy, Macy Gray's after-school music program.

"They were kissing in the car," says a source who observed the couple before they headed into the club, where besides his signature song Brown also performed "Every Little Step."

Wow....These people don't mess around....It's on to the next after a divource ....


Days after being cited for driving under the influence, Lindsay Lohan has checked into rehab, her rep confirms. "Lindsay admitted herself to an intensive medical rehabilitation facility on Memorial Day," Lohan's publicist said in a statement Tuesday. This is the second time this year that the 20-year-old has been in a treatment facility. Her first stay, at the Wonderland Center in West Hollywood, started on Jan. 17.

In a nearly 900-word message, Britney Spears, 25, posted a letter on her website addressing such topics as her stint in rehab, the pressures she's under, the realizations she's made over the last year, and the blessings of having children.

"Recently, I was sent to a very humbling place called rehab. I truly hit rock bottom," she writes. "Till this day I don't think that it was alcohol or depression. I was like a bad kid running around with ADD [attention deficit disorder]."

"I am having to face a lot of things right now since I have children of my own. A lot of insecurities from when I was little are coming up again. It is like we are never good enough. "I know everyone thinks that I am playing the victim, but I am not and I hate what is going on right now so much. Maybe this is the reason for this letter ... to maybe allow people to look at me differently. It is like when you are a real woman and say what you feel and how you think things are supposed to be, that people just say you are a 'bitch.' "

Explaining her recent behavior, she says, "I think it is actually normal for a young girl to go out after a huge divorce. I think it was a bigger issue because I had not gone out in such a long time. I am 25 and I do still have a lot to learn, and I am going to make mistakes everyday, and I am sure every mistake I make will probably be on CNN or Good Morning America. I am only human people and I love you for still loving me."

Good luck to these young girls on getting it together....

Last Wednesday night while Wayne was performing at “Miami Live,” he called ex-girlfriend Trina on stage. Reportedly, when the Diamond Princess went into her single “Here We Go”, she was so into Wayne that she forgot the words. She stopped rapping and they stared into each other’s eyes for like 30 seconds, then started hugging, and kissing and crying saying, “I miss you, I love you! The packed house went wild, screaming and throwing champagne in the air.


Lindsay Lohan was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence early Saturday morning after her Mercedes convertible struck a curb on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles. Police reported that they also found a substance they believe to be cocaine at the scene, according to an Associated Press report.

Lohan, 20, and two other unidentified people were in the actresses' 2005 Mercedes SL-65 when it crashed at around 5:30 a.m. on Saturday. It appeared she had been speeding and when police responded to a 911 call about the accident, the AP reported that officers found a "usable amount" of a drug they tentatively identified at the scene as cocaine. They would not say where the drug was found other than to confirm that Lohan was not carrying it.

Lohan was driven from the scene in a different car to the hospital to be treated for minor injuries; the other two people were not hurt.

Lohan was arrested at the hospital for investigation of misdemeanor driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, then released when she was admitted for treatment.

Her tentative arraignment date is August 24.

Kimora Lee Simmons and guy pal Djimon Hounsouat were spotted at the De Grisogono Party. Looks like there could have been some truth to the jet-setting pair getting cozy around Los Angeles.

This past February, the two were spotted heading to West Hollywood's Il Sole "holding hands, being really sweet to one another." Allegedly, the pair kissed and snuggled as they chilled at the hot spot.


According to the NY Post, Jay-Z and his 40/40 Club, have been hit with a lawsuit for allegedly skimping on pay for waiters, bartenders and other staffers.

Lawyers for Celeste Williams, a former waitress at 40/40, accused the club of keeping a cut of workers' tips and "willfully failing and refusing to pay them at the legally required minimum wage" and overtime since the popular nightspot opened in 2003.

"I find that this is a rampant violation throughout New York City," said lawyer Maimon Kirschenbaum, who filed the lawsuit in Manhattan federal court yesterday.
It seeks unspecified damages and estimates that more than 100 staffers have been ripped off - although club management said Williams worked at 40/40 for only four days in December 2005.

Club spokesman Ron Berkowitz noted that 40/40 has not yet been served with papers, but said, "The allegations are false."

With family like this who needs enemies.....

The talk queen tells us she's "shocked" and "disappointed" that she had to hear it from the Daily News that her 74-year-old pop, Vernon, is writing a book about her.
Winfrey said she laughed recently when "one of my assistants said, 'The Daily News is calling. They say they heard your father is writing a book about you.' I said, 'That's impossible. I can assure them it's not true.'

"But then my sister said, 'I think you should call your father.' I called him and it turned out he is writing a book. The worst part of it was him saying, 'I meant to tell you I've been working on it.'"

Winfrey, 53, confided, "I was upset. I won't say 'devastated,' but I was stunned."
"The last person in the world to be doing a book about me is Vernon Winfrey," she added. "The last person."

Oprah was 14 and pregnant when she left her mother's home in Milwaukee to live with her father in Nashville. Her baby died weeks after he was born. She has said before that she's grateful to her father for helping her go on, for teaching her discipline and the importance of education.

Nevertheless, Vernon, who plans to call his book, "Things Unspoken," was quoted as saying he should have been tougher on her, because Oprah was "out of hand and an unruly child."

"I have a good relationship with him," Oprah told the NY Daily News, when she received the Elie Wiesel Foundation Humanitarian Award at the Waldorf. Though she hasn't seen Vernon since he accompanied her on a trip to Africa a few months ago,she said, "We talk, we talk, we talk."


According to the New York Daily News, choreographer Laurie Ann Gibson and Diddy have suffered a nasty falling out. Sources also maintain that Diddy fired her during the incident - and at one point yelled for the MTV cameras to be shut off.

Gibson filed a complaint with the NYPD on May 11, claiming the argument jumped off when Diddy and guest judge Michael Bivins lamented over the disappointing performance of the latest group of contestants, who are competing for a spot in an all-male band.

During the April 25th taping at a branch of New York Sports Clubs in Greenwich Village, Gibson said she explained to Diddy and Bivins that the contestants had been given only a day to practice in order to see what they would do in a crunch.

Gibson said the two men began to yell and curse at her before Bivins allegedly grabbed her and Diddy picked up a chair to threaten her. She said she broke free, tried to run and Bivins allegedly grabbed her once again. Then she left, the complaint stated.

Sources close to Diddy denied he grabbed the chair. They also claim the argument was incited to add drama to the show and that Gibson overreacted.

"This is just another example of a false accusation by someone trying to take advantage of Sean's success and celebrity status," said attorney Benjamin Brafman.

Gibson's lawyer said the case was still under investigation, however, an NYPD spokesman told Widdicombe that Manhattan detectives investigated the allegation, found no wrongdoing and closed the case.

As for her firing, Gibson’s attorney Peter Toumbekis said her contract is with MTV and Combs does not have the power give out pink slips. Toumbekis also said the NYPD was still tying to get copies of the footage that MTV shot during the dispute.

Filming of the show’s season finale has been delayed because of the dispute, Toumbekis said.

"She is the inspiration for the contestants, and she has worked with Sean Combs for more than 10 years. That's why this was so unexpected," Toumbekis said.

Rapper Beanie Sigel tells Kanye West and Pharrell to come out of the closet on latest installment of "Beef" DVDs.

This is so silly. Beans is calling Kanye and Pharrell gay because of their choice of clothing....My biggest problem is that his case for making that assumption is because no one in the 'hood' dresses like that....People, why is it that we enjoy wallowing in the hood? Why can't we ever break out of the hood mentality. Other races spend their whole lives trying to rise from poverty, yet we struggle to stay cool and in-touch with the hood....I hate this....


Jessica Simpson and John Mayer have allegedly ended their romance. According to a PEOPLE source, "They have broken up,". "But they have broken up and gotten back together at least 10 times before."

In fact, the pair have "been emailing and talking to each other," since Simpson went to Cannes, says a Simpson friend. "I'm sure they'll get back together." As for why the two singers split, a friend of Mayer's says, "John did say that he broke up [with Jessica]. He said that it was because he was just over it."

Kim Kardashian is rumored to be in talks to turn her crazy family life into a reality TV series.

50 & Robin Thicke

So what does 50 Cent really think of Master P? "Well Master P doesn't sell CDs anymore...You can tell him I said it. Cameras is rollin' right?...Curtis, June 26."

That was the response 50 gave when a reporter used the No Limit Records founder as an example of a rapper who has chosen to stop using racist and sexist language in their music.

Unfortunately and not surprisingly, 50 will not be one of those artists cleaning up his lyrics.

"Music is a mirror, and hip-hop is a reflection of the environment that we grew up in. It's the harsh realities that end up in the music. If I ask you to paint a picture of the American flag and not use the color red, you're gonna have a difficult time. To capture what we try to capture in the art form, I'm sure some conservative Americans can't [identify] with it because of their lifestyle and the way they've actually been brought up, and they haven't been exposed to those realities."
