Hot off the press this week, Beyoncé may be having a young Hov, Ray J recalls Faith & Tupac creeping, Bobby Brown dishes dirt on Whitney Houston and Toni Braxton loses her breath.
First comes love, then comes marriage, but is Beyoncé about to start pushing a baby carriage? It looks like the rumor mill was right last week, but now that Jigga and Beyonce have said their "I Dos" do they have a little bundle of joy on the way? NY Daily News gossip columnists Rush & Molloy have tongues wagging about the newlyweds possibly being sperminated, but a rep for the singer told "Extra" she has no idea. Wonder if that's the same rep that had "no comment" on the wedding rumors.
Rebel talking ... Crossing my fingers the child takes after its mama.
[BTW the happy couple went clubbin' with Jermaine Dupri, Usher and Jeezy in Atlanta last night. Watch the exclusive video here.]
Don't Be Cruel
Bobby Brown's career may be in the dumps, but the singer has still been grabbing headlines by airing his dirty laundry in a tell-all biography so juicy the media hasn't been able to resist publishing excerpts.
Among his claims, Bobby says his breakup with Janet Jackson drove him to drink, blames Whitney Houston for introducing him to cocaine and says his famous ex only married him to put an end to gay rumors.
Meanwhile, Whitney issued the following in response to Bobby's trash talking, "Miss Houston is sad that Bobby feels the need to say such things but she chose to take the high road and will not speak badly about the father of her child even if it's to set the record straight."
Rebel Talking... Nice to see Whitney sober and taking the (other) high road. Wish we could say the same for Bobby!
Did Faith really get with Tupac? If you believe Ray J, she did. This week Brandy's little brother brought back the rumors that helped fuel the rap beef between two coasts by vividly recalling an encounter with Faith and Tupac at LA's famed Can Am Studios.
"We walked in one day and Faith was sitting on Pac's lap while Pac was writing a verse. It was like, 'What the f*ck is going on?' That was one of the craziest sights, dog. Faith was in Pac's lap. I was like, 'What the f*ck? I know I'm not? Is that? It can't?' Three weeks later, 'Hit 'Em Up' came out," Ray J recalled in a recent Rhapsody.com interview.
Rebel Talking... I'm gonna need Ray J to stick to telling on his own d*ck.
Toni Braxton was hospitalized in Las Vegas last night after her show at the Flamingo Hotel and Casino, reportedly suffering some shortness of breath, possibly a heart attack. The singer has a heart condition known as pericarditis, an inflammation of the sack surrounding the heart which might have had something to do with her most recent health scare. Toni's currently in good condition but next few shows may be postponed while she recovers.
Rebel Talking... Wishing you a speedy recovery Ms. Braxton!
But while you were learning how to make Usher's "Love in the Club" on Apple's GarageBand, we were watching his new video and wondering if Chilli had him in mind when she recorded her new single "Dumb Dumb Dumb."
