The Latest Hollywood Scoop

ALICIA KEYS & SWIZZ BEATS?
Well, a couple of weeks ago I hit you off with the scandal that Swizz Beats and his wife, R&B singer Mashonda, had been publicly throwing haymakers at each other. Well, let me turn up the heat for you…

Word is Mashonda is blaming the break-up of her marriage to Swizz Beatz on Alicia Keys. During an interview with Hip Hop Weekly, Mashonda broke it down like this:

“[Alicia Keys] is her own woman and she has made her own choices. I don’t have a problem with her. I will say this though, I am not a scorned woman. I have a responsibility to raise [my son], he’s my number one priority and everyday I strive more for him and of course my music.”

Now hopefully during these upcoming BET & ASCAP awards, I can pull Ms. Alicia over and get the real scoopage. In the meantime, I still feel no other woman can make my man leave me, he leaves because he wants to be out of the relationship. Using another woman is just him being a coward….Harsh reality on the ego….hell yeah, y’all.

Sometimes it’s just ain’t about the Power U****cause some of us are walking around here with Premium Platinum Power U, ya feel me!

SUPERHEAD IS CRYING WOLF….AGAIN
Please, enough already, can somebody pay for daily sessions to a therapist already for this ghurl, damn! You mean to tell me after two books of putting your business on blast and naming names & leaving us to imagine the level of cooties exchanged, there is yet another SUCKER to add to the roster?

Hell no, I’m not drinking out of anybody’s cup ever!!! This six degrees of separation is more like 1 in my world…eek!

Video Vixen Superhead aka Karrine Steffans says she got her a** whooped by her latest boyfriend actor Darius McCrary, (actor who played Eddie Winslow from “Family Matters”). According to Superhead, Darius tried to run her over. She alleges he’s been tearing that a** up for months. Now correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t she say Cool G. Rap in her first book used to wear her behind out on a regular? Hmm have you learned nothing from your past or is what your write fiction?

In an interview with www.MediaTakeout.com, Superhead alleges that Darius has been beating her for months. She says “Darius wouldn’t let me go out of the house, and on two occasions, he beat me up. I’m working with the Los Angeles Police Department to put together documentation including photographs of all the abuse so that local prosecutors can bring him to justice.”

Okay, let me flip it & play devil’s advocate and be more sympathetic to those who are caught in the cycle of abuse. In Superhead’s case, when you have money from your book advances and sales to get help - therapy, security, safety outlets, phone numbers of homeboys to give him a beat down - why not explore any of those options?

Why bring it up after months of staying in yet another miserable relationship; is this the set-up for the next book? Did I just fall into the plot of reporting this story to hype the sales of the upcoming tell-all?

Now you know, I’m so not down with a man putting his hands on a woman or vice versa in an abusive manner, but like she agreed when she sat on Oprah’s couch…”When you know better, you do better.”

As for the original report of McCrary trying to run her over, she revealed that he actually hit her with the car, and she’s currently on bed rest recovering.

This is all for the movie y’all. I’ll let you know if Elise Neal is confirmed to play her on screen. Damn, this chile exhausts me.

R. KELLY SAYS HELL NO, I WON’T GO
Well, R. Kelly has spoken up for the first and probably last time in his child-pornography trial.

The Rrra announced to the judge today that he would decline to take the stand in his own defense. “I decided not to testify,” he told Cook County Judge Vincent Gaughan outside the presence of the jury. You think maybe he doubts his acting chops in trying to convince a jury that it’s not him on the tape?

Well at the age of 41, the law in Chi-town for this trial does not require R. Kelly to testify. To no surprise, he has pleaded not guilty to charges that he videotaped himself having sex with a minor.

I’m still in shock about him giving her money on camera…like go buy a pair of shoes or sumthin. Oh yeah, and the small matter of urination too.

All I know is that parents better start watching their children, both sons and daughters. That young girl, as naive as she may have been, didn’t appear to be no rookie and that’s sad. Damn, what happened to good ole sports or Boys & Girl Scouts?
