We knew all that creeping would eventually catch up to you

A paternity test has confirmed that Mathew Knowles, 58, is the father of Alexsandra Wright's new baby boy, Nixon TMZ reports. The baby's half-sisters Beyoncé and Solange are 29 and 24, respectively.

The news comes after the elder Knowles initially had no comment about claims that he fathered a child with Wright, an actress, who said they had an 18-month affair with Knowles and filed a paternity suit last October.


While Papa Knowles has a new bundle of joy. Reps for Beyonce report that's so no the case for the Carters.

Despite an online report that the singer is pregnant, Beyoncé's rep say the story is "not true."

In the past, Knowles, 28, has spoken about her desire to start a family with her husband, 40. "I hope that those things will just happen naturally," she told Allure magazine for its February issue.

The pair, who were married in a secret ceremony, celebrate their second anniversary April 4.

50 sit it down:

“I would marry Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Rihanna in Africa, I’d have 3 wives! And I would avoid wearing condoms and have really big families!” the rapper said.

And on the subject of GaGa and Beyoncé he got very vocal about what he saw as a double standard about sexual imagery in videos saying, “I think it’s hot [the Telephone video]. But there’s a shot in the video in the diner that’s just breasts. And it looks great, but if I shot the same shot in my music video, they would make me edit that immediately.”

He added “Even if I had someone who was recognizable female talent that was part of the project, they wouldn’t allow that to go. They would think it was you taking advantage of a girl for marketing purposes or whatever.”

When asked why he thought that was he replied, “It’s their personal perception of your intentions of how you utilize it. Like ‘it’s Britney bitch’ nobody has a problem with that. But if I say ‘it’s Fifty bitch’ everyone’s like oh my god! You got to edit that.”


First Reggie and Kim, now Eva and Lance. Must be something in the air

Five months before their July 17th wedding, model/actress Eva Marcille, 25, and actor Lance Gross, 28, have split up. When reached out to the couple’s representatives for confirmation about the break-up we were given this official joint statement.

“Lance Gross and Eva Marcille have mutually decided to end their relationship. The split is completely amicable,” the statement reads.

Last month the blogosphere buzzed that Marcille and Gross, who had been together for nearly three years, were on the rocks, due to an alleged argument between the two during Super Bowl XLIV weekend in Miami.

The couple got engaged on Christmas Eve 2008, while vacationing with family in the San Bernardino Mountains outside of Los Angeles, after dating for a year and a half. The couple announced their engagement to

Lisa Ray is gracing the recent cover of Upscale mag and keeping it real:

“My whole life has been a fairytale. Every man that I have ever dated has always been powerful, had money and been generous to me. He (her ex-husband) was just the next in line. It was like this is how I am supposed to treated. My father was my first introduction to power. I am attracted to power. So when people always ask me why you always date a man with money, why in the hell wouldn’t I? I have my own lifestyle, it’s like, I’m not going for less than what I have. If I can’t be spoiled because he is not that generous, loving and caring, I don’t want you. Go to the next one. I can wait. I don’t know what it is not to be pampered and spoiled. I don’t even want to try it. That’s like saying to me, I’ma be broke. What do you mean? What? No. That don’t work for me. That’s not an option for me. I’ve never been that.”

“Star had my damn back. She is a friend, a confidante and the b*tch is smart. I never realized it was a problem until I looked up on day and realized I hadn’t spoken to her in so long that I was like, ‘Damn, where is she?’ Then I started hearing about the little shit that Vivica was saying–that I f*cked it up for all of us–I guess black women, or whatever–and I am thinking, why wouldn’t she say these things to me? I said, ‘Well, tell her to use her own influence to get what the f*ck she wants to get!” Never did I think that anything that I was going through would affect you and your career so much. Sorry.” I have reached out to both of them and asked what happened and what is their definition of a friendship. Where are they? I know a New York Daily News article came out saying that my new reality show was about revenge and airing out our dirty laundry, but I’m too grown for all of that. I would never tell any of my friends’ business, even if we aren’t friends anymore. There is no interest for me in that.”

LISARAYE ON WHY SHE HOLDS NO HARD FEELINGS TOWARD HER EX-HUSBAND: “I don’t feel bad about any of it. I was the famous face attached to Turks & Caicos that made [the marriage] what it was. That has helped his country. I believe that he cared about his country and he was a great leader for them. He brought a lot of money to that country and a lot of awareness. We both did. I am proud of that, very proud. Now, did he want his legacy to end his way? No! But I would get married again because I am a fan of love, I am a fan of a partnership, and it is much easier to fight this thing called life with someone by your side.”

Last Thursday Hov was in Brooklyn at the groundbreaking ceremony for the Barclays Center, the future home of the New Jersey Nets, the NBA team he co-owns. In attendance was Beyoncé, the Reverend Al Sharpton and the mayor and governor of New York.

"What I stand here and represent is hope for Brooklyn, New York City. I'm a son of Brooklyn, I'm from Marcy projects," Jay said. "I think about growing up in Brooklyn in the Marcy projects and shooting jump shots, thinking I can make it to the NBA. Now I stand here as an owner of a team that's coming back to Brooklyn. The pride in that, and bringing that dream so much closer for people, brings me so much pride I get a little nervous about it. But I'm very happy, very excited about this day. And we did it again, Brooklyn — shout-out to [Notorious] B.I.G."


LALA graces the latest issue of Latina and talks Melo and marriage:

“It was Christmas Eve,” La La remembers. “We were in bed. And he said, La La, I love you. I want to be with you forever. Will you marry me?”

“Even with all that I’ve accomplished on my own,” says Lala, “I know the story out there about me: ‘[Carmelo] ain’t gonna marry her. She got that ring but now he’s making her wait. He don’t really love her…’ For once…I’d like to tell the story as it is. Not as it’s told.”

“I wasn’t making her wait,” Denver Nuggets star Carmelo Anthony tells Latina magazine of La La, his fiancée. “If anything, I was waiting for her to slow down. She was doing her own thing, handling her business and we were happy. When it was time to take it to the next step we did. Period.”

So has he ever doubted for a minute that La La Vazquez is Mrs. Right, one with life, minset (and bank account) of her own? Melo speaks slowly, but surely: “ I wouldn’t be with her if it was any other way.” “Understood?”


The mother of Biggie's daughter - Jan Jackson - finally speaks.


Shaunie O'Neal recently sat down and did an exclusive interview with Essence Magazine and finally sets the record straight on what really brought about the demise of her marriage.

Excerpts below…

Shaunie on when things started to go bad in her marriage: [Shaq was traded to the Miami Heat] “Miami is a great city. It just wasn’t a great city for our marriage. I know they say L.A. has its groupies, but Miami has a different mentality. Even going to the games, the whole environment is so different. Girls are practically sitting in their bra and panties in the arena. When you’re trying to keep your husband, that’s a lot to take. It was a whole new lifestyle I wasn’t ready for. Apparently we didn’t have a strong enough foundation for Shaq to withstand that type of temptation.”

Shaunie on finally confronting Shaq about the infidelity rumors: “He would deny it sometimes, and other times he would ask, ‘You got pictures? Video? If not, don’t come at me because you have no proof.’ “He’d say, ‘Okay, you’re mad. Now what? You’re not going anywhere.’

Shaunie on being accused of cheating on Shaq with her personal trainer: “I worked out at home- with my trainer, my sister, her husband and my girlfriend. I was a good girl. I wouldn’t even entertain a man flirting with me. I was that conservative. But when those rumors came out, I felt I was so small and Shaq was so big that it didn’t matter what I said; nobody was going to believe me. All I was thinking was, How could this happen to me? I had no idea how I was going to pick up the pieces. I was just done.”

Shaunie on the state of her relationship with Shaq today: “We are becoming friends, and it’s nice because it’s something we really lacked in our marriage. I enjoy being able to talk openly to him, and I think we both learned a lot from each other during this time.”


One of 50 Cent's bodyguards has been arrested after assaulting a group of photographers who were waiting outside the rapper's Copenhagen hotel.

"I feared for my life," photographer Nikoloj Vraar told RadarOnline.

"One of 50 Cent's bodyguards came out and told us to leave. The next thing I knew, he grabs my throat and tried to strangle me."

"He cut off my airway, and I couldn't breathe," he added. "He took my camera and deleted photos."

Danish police did not released the bodyguard's name but confirmed he worked for the bad boy rapper and has been charged with assaulting two photographers.

"The bodyguard was arrested," said Vraar, who is editor-in-chief for MSN Star Lounge.

He was taken to Copenhagen hospital to be checked out by doctors and said his next stop would be the police precinct.

"I will be going straight to the police station and complete whatever paperwork is necessary."

Eddie Murphy was spotted courtside at the Lakers game this week with his new boo.

GV Says: Now you know she is too d*mn young for you Eddie. You're headed for some more Mel B trouble.


Bryson Bryant, the eldest son of NeNe Leakes, was arrested on a minor marijuana possession charge and was put in an Atlanta-area jail on March 7. Bryant has appeared on the Bravo reality show — and, in the first season, was filmed looking at colleges with Leakes.

On Wednesday, Leakes released a statement, calling her son’s arrest a “family issue.”

“Like any parent, I am disappointed with the actions and arrest of my son, Bryson,” she said in the statement. “Certainly, my husband and I will deal with this family issue in a private manner. My son is not the first young adult to experiment with marijuana, and he certainly won’t be the last. Still, as parents, this is a chance for us to have an open dialogue with him about the dangers of any substance abuse. I realize as a parent that my job is never done. And as I’ve tweeted, tough love was in order. Still, I ask that you respect our privacy during this trying time.”

But Leakes didn’t just stop there. Earlier that day, she also Tweeted about the incident. “Morning! I know my parenting job is NEVER DONE but TOUGH LOVE is ordered by the JUDGE! The judge [in] this case is ME,” she Tweeted. “My head is up & held high this morning because I KNOW the parent that i’am! U hate 4 yo kids 2 make mistakes! TOUGH LOVE this morning.”


Although Avatar didn't rack up at the Oscars, Zoe is making it happen on the cover of Essense. She gets candid from A to Z.

S is for sex: “Love it, love it, love it—can’t live without it!” Saldana exults. “I love sex. I love skin. I don’t believe the body is something to hide. I think in American society we’re messing up our kids by taking away the education on and awareness of our sexuality and replacing it with violence, guns and video games—and we’re breeding little criminals.”

B is for boyfriend: When it comes to intimate relationships, Saldana, who currently lives with her longtime boyfriend, Keith Britton, likes to be knocked off her feet. “I’m more of a punch-drunk-love kind of girl,” she admits. “I mean punch as in that pow, that jolt, that kick in the gut. I like things that are severe, passionate and extreme.”


Usher graces the cover of the new issue of Billboard magazine and talks music and marriage.

“I went all the way into being super husband and super dad, thinking, ‘I’ve got to be serious all the time. I’ve got to be the man.’ I put my swagger down for a minute, but I didn’t throw it away, now it’s time to get it back.”

‘Papers’ let everyone know that Usher knew what everyone was saying about him, his marriage and his relationship with his mom; that he understood what was being said,” Pitts says. “It was just to make a statement. We didn’t realize it would be as big as it was.”

Usher adds, “The song wasn’t intended to glorify my personal situation or people breaking up. I didn’t know if it was going to be the single or part of the album. I just thought it was a special track that would represent me well.”

Remember 80s star Corey Haim? Lost Boys, Lucas....

He died this morning of an apparent drug overdose, according to Los Angeles police.

Haim, who has battled an addiction to prescription drugs for years, collapsed in the bedroom of his mother's Oakwood apartment just before 1 a.m., police sources told

Los Angeles County Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter told that when emergency personnel arrived, the 38-year-old actor was alive but weak and complaining of flu-like symptoms.

Haim's mother, Judy, called 911 at 12:53 a.m. after he was found unresponsive.
Haim was rushed to Providence St. Joseph's Medical Center in Burbank, where he was pronounced dead at 2:15 a.m.

Law enforcement sources said four prescription bottles were found nearby, according to, but said his death appeared to be accidental.

Stacey Dash and Jamie Foxx???

It seems Stacey just decided to split from her third husband, Emmanuel Xuereb, and spoke about it on Foxx's radio show, "The Foxxhole," on Sirius XM on Friday.

She married Xuereb in 2007, but Stacey says the two have "grown apart" over the past three years.

"People are saying Jamie and Stacey hooking up is a win-win situation," says an insider. "It's good for Jamie's music career to be on good terms with Damon, and Stacey wouldn't have snagged an invite to the Oscars without Jamie."

NY Daily News insider adds that the photo ops are a bonus for Stacey, who, rumor has it, is attempting to restart her career.

She was certainly in the right place for it on Sunday night - after the awards show, she and Foxx were spotted at the exclusive Vanity Fair after-party, where they chatted with Heidi Klum, along with pregnant "Precious" star Paula Patton and her crooning hubby, Robin Thicke.

"They looked very much like an item, and Jamie was introducing her to everyone," says one L.A. partygoer. "They seemed to be thorougly enjoying each other's company."

But at least one naysayer questions the relationship. Says one industry source: "Before Sunday night, no one had ever seen them together or heard that they even knew each other."


Weezy finally heads to jail.

Wayne was shipped off to jail Monday, with his lawyer saying he wanted to hang tough at Rikers Island by doing his time with the general population.

And he'll get his wish.

Even though defense lawyer Stacey Richman initially claimed that city officials were forcing the rapper into protective custody, it turns out he's going into a regular cellblock.

Correction Department spokesman Stephen Morello said the "Lollipop" singer will have "general population escort" status.

That means he'll be escorted by a correction captain when outside of his housing unit - just like gang members

Inside, he's free to socialize under the watchful eye of guards with the 17 men on his cellblock - or stay locked in his cell.

"It's his choice," Morello said.

He said the agency never got a request from Lil Wayne to be treated like any other inmate - and Richman conceded she never made one because she assumed it would be shot down.

Lil Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Carter, pleaded guilty in October to felony gun charges involving a semiautomatic pistol found on his tour bus in 2007.

His sentencing was delayed twice, once for surgery on his diamond-studded teeth and once because of a courthouse fire.

When the sentencing finally happened, a crush of photographers and screaming fans followed him into the Manhattan courthouse. He spent his last moments of freedom in the bathroom with rapper Birdman, who tagged along for the hearing - and had nothing to say in court.

Sounds A.I. is in some hot water.

Multiple NBA sources say Allen Iverson is facing alcohol and gambling issues that have derailed his career and threaten his post-basketball well-being, Stephen A. Smith of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports in a column published Monday.

According to multiple NBA sources, there is widespread concern that the four-time NBA scoring champion, who left the Philadelphia 76ers in February to deal with his daughter's illness and will not return this season, "will either drink himself into oblivion or gamble his life away," Smith reported.

Iverson's gambling problem is serious enough that he has been banished from casinos in Detroit and Atlantic City, N.J., according to Smith.

The report comes as Iverson is dealing with significant personal problems. He acknowledged on Twitter on Monday that he is going through "tough times."

Iverson posted four messages Monday night on his Twitter account telling fans he expected to overcome the most recent obstacles in his life.

"To my fans: You all know that my life isn't perfect. I am going through some very tough times right now, like I am sure that we all do from time to time," Iverson wrote. "However, I will stand tall like always with 'rhino' thick skin."

Iverson's wife Tawana filed for divorce on March 4, the same day the Philadelphia 76ers announced that the All-Star guard would not return for the rest of the season. In the divorce filing, made at Fulton County Superior Court in Atlanta, Tawana Iverson said the couple's 8½-year marriage is "irretrievably broken" and sought full custody of the family's five children, child support and alimony.

Iverson, who played 25 games for the Sixers this season, returned to Atlanta in February to be with his family and deal with an undisclosed illness affecting his 4-year-old daughter, Messiah.

Smith, who has covered Iverson closely for years, wrote in Monday's column that Iverson needs someone with "the ideal combination of compassion and toughness" in his life. And former Temple coach John Chaney said that person is John Thompson, Iverson's former college coach at Georgetown.

"[Thompson] is the one guy who'll have a chance of slowing this train wreck down, who could wrap his arms around Iverson and have an impact, because clearly it has not been done," Chaney said, according to Smith. "But there's still this one question: Will [Iverson] listen?"

Allen Iverson said on Twitter it hurt to hear stories about his personal life that aren't true.

"Even though I have become used to hearing people say things about me that aren't true, it still hurts," Iverson wrote. "I encourage you to continue your ongoing support and I want you to trust that this is another obstacle in my life that, with God's help I will overcome."


Beyoncé spoke in downtown Brooklyn, New York, at the Phoenix House, a nonprofit recovery center for drug and alcohol addiction, to unveil a project she and her mother, Tina, have dreamed of and worked on for years: the Beyoncé Cosmetology Center. According to the press release, the program is "a seven-month cosmetology training course for adult men and women." L'Oréal has donated all the products to be used at the center, and their spokeswoman Beyoncé, along with her mother, have pledged to donate $100,000 annually.

After brief remarks by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Tina Knowles, among others, Beyoncé graciously took to the podium to explain both her ties to the house — she first visited in 2007 as part of research for her role as Etta James in "Cadillac Records" — and her hopes for the program.

While Phoenix House provides varied vocational training, "I felt like they needed something that was geared towards women — something that would teach them skills that would give them hope even after the Phoenix House," Beyoncé explained about why she chose to fund a beauty school. Her mother also owned and operated a salon in Knowles' hometown of Houston.

"I saw that a salon was a place for women to socialize, share stories, cry, laugh and get advice," she continued about her experiences growing up around a beauty parlor. She was close to tears as she added, "Most importantly, I saw the joy it brought my mother, knowing she was a part of their transformation."


Hey look....D'Angelo is back!

The 34-year-old R&B singer was arrested around 2:30 a.m. Saturday after allegedly offering an undercover policewoman $40 for oral sex in New York City's West Village neighborhood. The New York Post reports he also had $12,000 stashed in his SUV.

In a statement, D'Angelo (real name: Michael Archer) says he will plead not guilty.

Vowing to fight the charge, he said he hopes the public will "allow the American justice system to resolve the matter before jumping to any conclusions."


Mo'Nique won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress tonight. She first thanked the Academy "for showing that it can be about the performance and not the politics." She then paid tribute to Gone With the Wind Supporting Actress Hattie McDaniel, the first African-American ever to win an Oscar (in 1939), and "for enduring all she had to, so I wouldn't have to."
