Too cute not to post. Alicia Keys was donned in Dolce & Gabbana at the Black Ball gala benefiting her HIV/AIDS charity, Keep a Child Alive, at St. Smith Church in London on Thursday.


Gary Coleman has died after suffering a brain hemorrhage. He was 42.

Coleman died at 12:05 p.m. at the Utah Valley Regional Medical Center in Provo, Utah, where he had been in a coma.

"He was removed from life support; soon thereafter, he passed quickly and peacefully," his manager John Alcantar says. "By Gary’s bedside were his wife and other close family members."

The actor suffered an intracranial hemorrhage at his Utah home on Wednesday night. On Thursday, he was "conscious and lucid," the hospital says in a statement, "but by early afternoon that same day, Mr. Coleman was slipping in and out of consciousness and his condition worsened."


According to UsMagazine, Common and Serena Williams have ended their two-year relationship.

The couple's busy schedules were reportedly to blame for the split.

"They are two workaholics who couldn't see each other enough," a source told the mag. "Things happen."


Is she or isn't she?

NY Daily News reports that Mimi abruptly dropped out of her next project - a role in Tyler Perry's "For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf" - on Tuesday, fueling rumors that she's pregnant.

While speculation has run rampant that she's with child since she married Nick Cannon in 2008, the 41-year-old started further whispers when she was spotted with her hubby outside an L.A. medical clinic this month.

Carey and Cannon, who have both talked about wanting to start a family, have neither confirmed nor denied the recent claims.

But Carey's longtime rep Cindi Berger gave a rather cryptic comment Thursday.

"She is not doing the movie because her doctor advised her not to," Berger told Us Weekly. She then insisted to us that she could not "comment any further."


Gary Coleman has suffered a brain hemorrhage

The 42-year-old Diff'rent Strokes star is now unconscious and on life support in a coma. His wife is at his side in the hospital.
"We appreciate everyone's thoughts and prayers for speedy recovery," says manager John Alcantar.

The actor hurt his head Wednesday when he fell in his Utah home, and was taken to a local hospital. He was then transferred to the intensive care unit at Utah Valley Regional Medical Center. "He's unconscious and on life support at the moment," Alcantar says. "He had a brain hemorrhage and he was lucid but he went unconscious [Thursday] afternoon."

Suge was arrested last week for allegedly threatening a person with a gun and was ordered by a judge to temporarily stay away the alleged victim.

Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Carol Boas Goodson granted Elwood E. Chatman the temporary restraining order Monday that directs that Knight stay at least 100 yards from Chatman and his family.

Chatman represented himself in the civil court filing. A hearing on whether to extend the order is scheduled for June 8.

Suge, 45, was arrested shortly after midnight Thursday on suspicion of felony assault with a deadly weapon and for driving on a suspended license. He was released on $65,000 bail.

Suge's attorney has denied his client ever pointed a gun at anyone during a stop at a gas station and said when his client was eventually stopped in Gardena, police never recovered a weapon.


Its a wrap for Nas and Kelis.

Legal documents finalizing the divorce were filed last Friday in L.A. County Superior Court, according to

Despite their nearly seven-year marriage being over, their drama is not.

In July 2009, a Los Angeles court ordered Nas to pay $44,000 a month in spousal and child support. Several months later, a judge increased these payments to $51,101.

However, Nas claims he can't afford these payments.

Well Ciara and 50 Cent are still hanging strong. The duo hit the Love Sac store and Target in Cali this weekend. The owner of the "alternative furniture company" Love Sac Tweeted about their buys.


Lebron and Gloria James' lawyer has finally answered the accusations that moms Gloria is getting it in with Bron's teammate Delonte West. Supposedly Lebron found out the news right before game 4 of the playoffs and it was the cause of him not playing well after that.

The lawyer fired off a cease and desist letter to the website originally reporting the story and said "no thinking person would believe this story." Don't know about that

According to TMZ:

In the email, Frederick Nance -- attorney for LeBron and Gloria -- says the report is "categorically false and per se defamatory." Nance adds, "No thinking person could possibly believe such rubbish."

The site responded saying it's fishy that it took 4 days for this letter to come and they stand by their source.

GV Says: I agree!


Jay-Z and Nick Cannon were spotted leaving the Four Seasons in NYC yesterday. Jay was auctioning off his signed timepiece during the Audemars Piguet and Tony Awards’ after-party.

The NY Post went on to report that Jay-z needs to watch more "Frasier." At Monday night's Audemars Piguet "Time to Give" event he jumped onstage to pump up the bidding on a watch signed by Kelsey Grammer. A spy reports, "Jay-Z accidentally called him Chelsea Grammer. Kelsey was there and just chuckled and shook his head." But the rapper's efforts didn't go to waste: a Jay-Z-designed and signed watch went for $220,000.


The NY Post reports that Swizz Beatz and his ex-wife are heading back to court.

In papers filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, Mashonda Dean says the man who officially became her ex-husband two weeks ago already owes her $334,000 in missed payments

"I so much wanted both of us to get on with our lives and maintain our respect for one another, but he now shows that his priorities and sense of responsibility are screwed up," Mashonda said.

Mashonda's lawyer, Bernard Clair, called the nonpayment "particularly troubling" because of reports that Beatz bought a seven-carat engagement ring for Keys earlier this year and that they're moving into a $14.5 million duplex penthouse on Crosby Street.

Beatz told The Post his ex's allegations that he owes $325,000 in equitable distribution and $9,000 in alimony and child support are "inaccurate" and "overblown," and said that he's gone "above and beyond" to provide for her and their son, Kasseem Jr., 13.

He said he'd agreed to pay Mashonda more than the judge required and much more than his lawyer recommended -- he even had to sign court papers acknowledging that he was going against his attorney's advice.

"I gave over what the judge was recommending to give. I gave her $700,000 up front, because I thought $200,000 wasn't enough for what she wanted to do. I still get spit in my face for it," he said.

He suggested that the subsequent payments had been ready to go when he discovered "she'd been selling all my stuff out of my house."

Clair said the only items his client sold were some remote-controlled vehicles the producer had left behind after movers took out his belongings."

The two sides are due back in court next month.

Swizz will reportedly tie the knot with Alicia Keys this summer.

GV Says: A mess!!!

So Weezy hit up his blog to give his Mother's Day reflections:

Weezy's words about a mother's worth:

It’s not many words in the world more powerful than “mother.” Those six letters can bring joy, just like they bring pain. It can invoke excitement just as quickly as it can anger, depending on the context, I guess. For myself, it means more than I can ever possibly describe, but I will try. I associate the term with immeasurable strength, beautiful patience and infinite wisdom.

You can probably already tell, but the main reason for this letter is to pay tribute to every positive matriarch on Mother’s Day. In my eyes, that day is 365 days a year, but I understand the significance of the holiday. The love between a mother and her offspring is hands down the most beautiful thing God created. More than money, more than fame, more than cars. You know why? Because true love is the only thing that lasts from the moment you’re born to the second you perish. To all the mothers who read this letter, I hope this day allows you to feel the love and respect you so rightfully deserve. You are the role models, not me.

To the mothers of my beautiful children, there remains nothing but love, adoration and respect coming from my heart. Even with the mistakes I’ve made in my life, you give me reason to smile in a place where they attempt to break your spirit each day the sun rises. I love my babies with all my heart. And the fact you brought them into this world only gives me more and more motivation to write these words. Happy Mother’s Day.

Last but not least, my own mother, Ms. Cita. You are my heart and you are my soul. Please don’t ever forget that. We’ve been through everything one could possibly imagine together. With each obstacle that has come our way, you have handled it with the grace and dignity I can only hope to mimic. Even writing this, it’s tough to come to grips with the fact I cannot spend this special day with you. Like you always preached, a man must accept his own actions – good and bad – and learn from them. And that’s what I’m doing. Mom, I love you more than you will ever know. Probably more than I love my own self. Enjoy Mother’s Day because you deserve it. Also, find comfort knowing your son loves you and misses you like crazy.

To everyone, again, I cannot stress this enough, thank you so, so much for the support. My spirits are sky high thanks to you all. It makes the day pass faster knowing people out there care about you and want you to do well. I pray the letters keep coming in at the volume they are right now, especially the overseas ones. They let me know life still does move on, even if I forget at times. I just ask that you all keep the letters to one page. And keep sending the pictures, too. Some of you are talented beyond belief with the drawings and paintings.

I’ll go ahead and end the letter here, but again Happy Mother’s Day to each and every lady who has raised/is raising her kids the best way possible. Take care. God bless. Live life. Show love.

I can trust my loving Savior
When I fear the world’s alarms;
There’s no safer place of resting
Than His everlasting arms


The Carters hit courtside of the Cavs vs. Celtics game Friday night to cheer on Jay's BFF Lebron James.


GV Says: Is anyone checking for Toni?


For concertgoers at Metro Park in Jacksonville, Fla., on Friday, the hottest ticket at the annual Funk Fest wasn't the performance by '90s girl group SWV or the line for fruity refreshments as temperatures climbed into the 90s. It was watching singer Bobby Brown propose to his girlfriend of nearly three years, manager Alicia Etheridge.

Etheridge joined Brown on stage, holding their 11-month-old son Cassius, he got down on one knee and presented her with a ring. The crowd roared its approval as a beaming Etheridge kissed Brown, who remained kneeling.

Brown had a troubled 15-year marriage to Whitney Houston.

Is LT back on those rocks???

Ex football player Lawrence Taylor has been accused of rapping a 15 year-old.

Taylor admitted paying the underage hooker $300 for sex - but he may not have known the girl he's charged with raping is just 16, according to court papers.

The ex-Giant star's appeared in a criminal complaint against pimp Rasheed Davis, who was hit with a sex trafficking charge in Manhattan Federal Court.

Davis beat the teenager before delivering her to Taylor's hotel room early Thursday and told her to tell him "she was 19 years old," the document states.

When Taylor was confronted by cops, he said he "met with a female" that police identified as the teenager. After "engaging in sex acts" LT paid her "$300 in cash."

Ex-wife Maritza Cruz told The Daily News "he always had a lot of no-good and crazy women throwing themselves at him."

"He's definitely no saint," she added. "But I don't believe he would do such a thing. He would have to have been in a crazy state of mind to do something like that, but as far as I know, he's been sober for years."

The hero uncle of the 16-year-old girl allegedly forced to have sex with disgraced Giants great Lawrence Taylor recalled the gut-wretching message he received from his terrified niece Saturday night.

"Tio, help me! help me!" he said the girl texted him. "She said, 'This guy is forcing me to do this. He hit me. He abused me.'"

The runaway teen had text-messaged the uncle on her way to the Holiday Inn in Montebello, N.Y., after she was allegedly beaten by her pimp, Rasheed Davis, and pressured into having sex with the 51-year-old Hall of Famer early Thursday morning, the uncle said.

The uncle, whose name The News is withholding, dialed 911 and cops were waiting for Davis, 36, when they returned to his Bronx home, where he lives with his mother.

"She just wanted to get out of the situation," her uncle said. "She said she's not the type of person to be doing this.

"I feel happy that I saved her life," he said. "It's heartbreaking."

The young girl moved in with Davis after he found her at a bus stop on Boston Post Road, four weeks after she ran away from home in March.

The ex-linebacker admitted to paying $300 for sex with the girl but said he didn't know she was underage, court papers show.

Davis - who was released from prison in 2008 after serving 15 years for manslaughter - allegedly brought the girl to Taylor's hotel room and told her to say she was 19 years old, prosecutors said.

The uncle said the teen didn't recognize her john.

"She never knew that he was a football player," he said.

"It's been very stressful," the uncle said of the past few days. "I can't sleep."

Gabby finally gets called out.

The NY Daily News reports that Dwyane Wade's bitter divorce battle from Siohvaughn Funches has become a whole lot messier.

The estranged wife of the NBA star is seeking $50,000 in damages against his new girlfriend, actress Gabrielle Union, whom she alleges has caused her two children emotional distress.

Funches claims the actress "engaged in sexual foreplay" with Wade in front of his sons, Zaire, 8, and Zion, 2, while on an unsupervised visit to his Miami home, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

The suit also alleges that Wade's oldest son was allowed to play unsupervised in or around the Miami home's pool at night. Wade and Union allegedly ignored the child, whose "screams and cries" eventually caught the attention of Wade's mother, Jolinda Wade.

In addition, the suit claims the younger son nearly drowned while in Wade's care.

Wade allegedly orchestrated a meeting between Union and his children, where he introduced her as his "girlfriend" and said "that is why your mom and I are going to divorce," according to the suit.

Funches claims Union's "extreme and outrageous conduct" with Wade has caused her oldest son to seek medical treatment for stress and anxiety, as well as develop nervous habits, headaches and hair loss.

Wade, 28, recently filed for sole custody of the couple's two sons, a move which reportedly prompted Funches to add Union to the lawsuit, reports Gossip Cop.

He says he is "shocked" by the "baseless and meritless" lawsuit filed by his ex.

"I am deeply saddened and disappointed that Siohvaughn has used our sons once again as pawns and is now lashing out at Gabrielle, who is an innocent party," Wade tells "It is clear that this is a desperate attempt to retaliate against me for seeking sole custody of our children and requesting that the court have her undergo a psychiatric examination."

He adds, "My primary concern is my children and actions such as this only inflame the situation and are harmful to their well being."

A rep for Union, 37, also denies the claims, saying, "Each and every allegation made is entirely false."

"These false accusations were previously made approximately one month ago in family court. Not only was Ms. Union not named a defendant at that time but the court ultimately rejected these claims as frivolous," the rep added. "Gabrielle apologizes to the Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois for tying them up with erroneous claims when there are real victims who should be receiving the legal attention they need."

Beyonce with a Brooklyn tattoo. WTF? I'm going to need to see this a couple more times before I think it's real.


So what's really going on with Chris Breezy these days? We hear he had a diva moment on air last week.

He claims the interview was chopped up...who knows


Looks like it's the beginning of the end for Tiger and Elin.

We hear he recently met with lawyer Jeff Fisher. Fisher ought for NASCAR champ Jeff Gordon's wife, Brooke, who came away with $15 million-plus.


So we all knew that Mimi and Nick were renewing their vows after two yrs...

For a gift, Nick gave a custom-made "Ring Pop" during their small, private party for their second anniversary in Los Angeles Friday. It was hand crafted at Jason of Beverly Hills jewelers. It was made of white gold encrusted in white diamonds and pink sapphires.

"It also comes in a box complete with a spinner so that you can see it sparkle under the lights inside," Jason Arasheben, the CEO of Jason of Beverly Hills tells.

Three years ago when Cannon, 29, proposed to Carey, 41, it was with a diamond ring disguised in a ring pop candy wrapper. They got married in 2008 on Carey's Bahamian estate.

Looks like it's splittsville for Halle

“While I will not comment on all of the wild inaccuracies being speculated about in the media, I am sad to say that Halle and I have decided together to separate at this time," Aubry, a model, confirmed Friday in a statement to Access Hollywood released through his agency, Wilhelmina Models.

"She is, and will forever be, one of the most special and beautiful people that I have ever known, and I am certain that we will continue to have only love and respect for one another."

The couple are putting daughter Nahla first, according to the model. "Her happiness and well-being are the most important thing for both of us," Aubry says. "Please respect our privacy during this very difficult time."
