Update on the Usher/Tameka Wedding Saga for all the “Haters”

Posted by Bossip Staff


Us magazine.com is reporting that Usher and Tameka are indeed still getting married:

“As of right now we don’t have a date but we will let you know when we do.” The couple, who had scheduled their July 28 wedding at the Long Island home of music executive L.A. Reid, called off the ceremony at the last minute without explanation. Multiple newspaper and online outlets speculated that the cancellation was due to bad blood between Foster and Usher’s mother, recent reports about Foster’s criminal past, and Foster’s resistance to signing a prenuptial agreement. However, a source close to the couple dismisses the rumors.

“People are just hating,” says the insider, who reveals the real reason they postponed the wedding was due to a pre-term labor scare. According to the Usher source, at noon on Friday, the four-months pregnant Foster was admitted to St. Vincent’s Medical Center in New York City after suffering cramping. But upon examination, says the source, “she learned it was just uneasiness brought on by the stress of the wedding.”

At that point, the singer decided to postpone the ceremony. But no worries. “Everbody’s fine. Tameka and the baby are fine,” Usher himself told Usmagazine.com on July 31, after the couple arrived via private plane in NYC. Foster chimed: “We’re good. We’re all doing great now.”

SMH at “People are just hating”…spoken in the words of a true manipulator. I don’t know what would be worst, Tameka as a wife or a babymama. Poor Usher.

When The Checks Stop Coming In

Posted by Bossip Staff


American Idol reject Corey Clark was arrested yesterday for ridin’ dirty, some weed and outstanding warrants were found by one-time. Last year, Corey spread a rumor that he hit Paula Abdul and she promised him she would help with his career.

They probably did have a relationship together, smoking rocks together sounds about right.

Fill in The Blank: Star Jones

Posted by Bossip Staff


Star Jones admitted to lying about getting knifed-up with gastric bypass surgery to lose weight. You mean her lazy ass didn’t exercise those 300 pounds off within a week? SMH. Via People Magazine:

Star Jones Reynolds has been candid about many issues in her life – getting fired from The View or rumors that her marriage was failing – but she’s remained mum about the secret behind her weight loss. Now, in the September issue of Glamour, she’s admitting that, yes, she had gastric bypass surgery – despite previously denying she had the procedure. Why the denial? “First, I didn’t know if the surgery would work,” she writes in the first-person essay. “I had spent my entire adult life telling everyone that I was fine with the way I looked. I never thought I’d have to explain it. “But the complete truth is, I was scared of what people might think of me.”

Jones Reynolds, 45, begins her Glamour essay on Aug. 19, 2003, the day of her surgery, and she writes, “I was so angry: How had I allowed myself to get to 307 pounds?” Tracking her weight loss over the years – peaking after she rapidly gained about 75 lbs. following her 40th birthday – Jones Reynolds describes feeling lonely and using food as a tool to fill the void. “Whenever I felt lonely, a Double Whopper with cheese became my friend. If I felt sad, six strips of bacon made me feel better.”

“Even though I claimed to be just fine with my weight, I saw how other women [colleagues] were treated like the girlfriend, while I was treated like the good friend, she writes about her first job with NBC News in 1991. “To compensate for my insecurities, I spoke louder and ate more.”

FILL IN THE BLANK: In this picture, Star was probably thinking ______________________.

1 Cent’s Oreo Love Triangle

Posted by Bossip Staff


1 Cent wants to buy a crib London and it is rumored that Danielle Lloyd may be one of the reasons. He was linked earlier this month to the actress:

I love London so much I’m buying a place there,” Fiddy told The London Lite in Cyprus before he performed at Medfest alongside Akon, Amerie, Memphis Bleek and Mutya. “It’s a crazy city, the parties are wild and the women are hot!” By hot, could Curtis be referring to Danielle Lloyd with whom he was romantically linked not too long ago? “Danielle is a gorgeous girl but I am most definitely 100 per cent single right now. I don’t have time for relationships with my job. I’m on the road all the time doing my thing and having fun, I don’t want to be tied down right now.”

Ciara is for publicity, Danielle is for some ‘brains’, it’s that simple. In the end, 1 Cent will probably settle down with one of his dildos.


Kimora’s Jealous of Blood Diamond Russ’ New Girl?

Posted by Bossip Staff


Kimora Lee Simmons may be a a little jealous of Blood Diamond Russ’ new girlfriend, Porschla Coleman. Bossip exclusively reported Russ was dating Porschla early this year. Via New York Daily News:

Kimora Lee Simmons was a no-show for the Saturday “Art for Life” gala she was supposed to co-host with Russell Simmons at their East Hampton estate, which they share despite their separation. “Russell had a whole building to himself, and she was to take the another building on their estate so they’d never have to see each other, but she couldn’t even handle that,” says our source. Her rep tells us that she was busy in L.A., but we hear she was miffed that her ex-hubby ushered his new flame, model Porschla Coleman, into the event. Drama aside, celebs such as Forest Whitaker, Petra Nemcova, Heather Graham, Nia Long and Babyface showed to raise $1.4 million for the Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation. Later, Simmons made his way sans Coleman to Star Room for the after-party.

The only issue here is Kimora probably wants Porschla for herself.

Jonetta Patton Strikes Back Against Tameka Foster

Posted by Bossip Staff

What happened to Usher’s planned wedding that was to take place over the weekend? After getting owned by Tameka Foster last year, Jonetta Patton struck back and did a drive-by on Usher’s planned wedding to the old woman with three kids. Ms. Patton was fired by Usher Tameka as her son’s manager last year.

Contrary to Tameka’s claims that her and Ms. Patton are all good to various media outlets, Jonetta said she wasn’t co-signing the wedding and refused to show up. Tameka, who is currently in the hospital after a pregnancy scare, is now talking to People Magazine about the canceled wedding. According to one source, Usher wasn’t taking Tameka’s calls after canceling the wedding and she is playing the pregnancy card to get her some attention.

If the Mama’s boy is trying to find another mother in Tameka, he needs to take a better look, Jonetta is bangin’. Maybe he wants a mother and a dude together, Tameka would fit in nicely with that. SMH.


Quote of the Day: Calvin Klein (Not the Designer)

Posted by Bossip Staff


Former dope dealer and Jay-Z’s ex-homeboy Calvin Klein on Joe Camel’s inauthenticity:

“In the 80’s, Jay wasn’t trying to be a drug dealer he was tryna be a rapper but in order for him to transcend himself into this hell of a dude, he had to take characters from the 80’s like myself , said Klein. “ I give him 10% of his life that he talked about; I gotta give him something, [laughs]. He is from Brooklyn, he lived in Marcy Projects, his name is Sean Carter, he got that right.”

“To me Jay‘s a white boy on the inside , no offense to any white boys but to me he’s white boy on the inside and I’m waiting for time to tell what he’s gonna do with the outside of himself ,” Klein continued. “ I’m surprised he should have done himself a favor and pout me on his team . How you gon let Akon pull me in , official Konvict. Akon provided the chance and an opportunity for guys like myself, Jay could have done that out the gate but he didn’t.”

“Why are most of the artists at Def Jam on the shelf? Why is it about Jay-Z and his music?. Bring Bleek out. Let Bleek hold his own You don’t have to say Bleek don’t have to another drop album, I got him for life’. He can hold his own , he’s a man , let him come out with an album and get his ones and units up . Don’t give him nothing.”

Another case of Mr. Camel and his swagger-jacking, but hey, whatever works, right? Obviously he’s gonna keep swagger-jacking his ass all the way to the bank. Well, at least this dude has a job (many ex-cons have a hard time finding work), thanks to Akon and Konvict music, SMH.

Who’s Voting for Barack Obama in 2008?

Posted by Bossip Staff


Don’t expect the double cover of Vibe Magazine’s September issue to be Kanye West and Fifty Cent. For the first time, Vibe goes political with Illinois Senator and 2008 Presidential Candidate Barack Obama. They feature an exclusive interview with Obama that cover various topics from his childhood to Don Imus.

Maybe this will be a little more effective than Diddy’s “Vote or Die” campaign for getting more people to vote.

Spotted @ C&D

Where is Kim Porter??? Part 17: Diddy in Saint-Tropez

Posted by Bossip Staff


Damn, I know Puffy couldn’t wait to be “officially” single, but he has been kicking it awfully hard in St. Tropez. He has been seen yachting with Dr. Dre and has been spotted leaving restaurant Club 55 in a white Maybach with French model Noemie Lenoir. No one would ever tell that those French people ain’t checking for his ass though…

Via Page Six:

“He is so B-List here,” said the snitch. “No one even acknowledges him.”

Some celeb-followers are questioning why Diddy is even roaming the South of France beaches. “Nobody goes out there until the first and second week of August,” one source cackled. “Maybe he’s afraid he’ll get lost in the crowd once all the real celebs show up.”

First Laurie Ann calls him corny on his own show and now the French people got jokes. It’s definitely time for Diddy to sit his ass down somewhere—something that has been long overdue.

Serena Williams and her boo, actor Jackie Long kicked it in Vegas this weekend @ Fergie Live From the Pearl at the Palms. They definitely get the cute couple approval. That looks like a ring on Serena’s finger in the thumbnail pic of her and Macy Gray….Hmmmm.

Everyone Wants to be a Stripper

Posted by Bossip Staff


Britney Spears sliding up and down the pole in shots from her new video “Get Back”. I know this pole-dancing fascination is becoming way too conventional these days with housewives taking exotic-dancing lessons at the local health club, but Britney’s ass look like she could work at Magic City for real with those damn microbraids in her hair.
