Hot off the press this week, Mariah Carey's not wildin' n out without a pre-nup, Chris Brown's bodyguards get a little over protective under the flashing lights, Olivia tight-lipped on Missy Elliot rumors, and Beyoncé makes a grand appearance without her ring.
Love Does Cost A Thing
After a lot of doubting, it has been confirmed that Nick Cannon exchanged vows with Mariah Carey in the Bahamas last week. But while Cannon may be touching Mimi's body, he'll have to keep his hands out of her pockets.
According to Perez Hilton the singer, who was escorted down the aisle by her cousin Shawn McDonald, is said to have told a friend of the marriage, "Anyone who thinks we didn't have a prenup is smoking something!" Anybody whose seen her closet knows Mariah has been clocking some serious dollars, so it's definitely in her best interest to protect her earnings in the event of a divorce.
Rebel Talking... I guess Mimi wasn't lying when she said she's no "ditzy moron"
Gimme That (Camera)
After posing shirtless for the cover of EbonyMagazine, R&B stud Chris Brown had his bodyguards go to extreme lengths to protect that chiseled frame. According to the Tampa Bay Times, a Florida newspaper photographer, Luis Santana is claiming security for the teen singing sensation beat and robbed him Monday night near Vintage Ultra Lounge in St. Petersburg, FL., where Brown was having a private birthday party.
Chris was accompanied by his boo Rihanna, who was in town performing with Kanye West's "Glow In The Dark Tour." As Santana tells, his attempts to snap flicks of Brown in his SUV were not taken kindly by Brown's bodyguards, who chased him and forced him to the ground. One guard allegedly put his knee on Santana's jaw, and took his $3,000 camera. The incident left the photog with cuts and bruises on his chest, back and arms.
"I've shot many celebrities and this was just another notch on my belt," Santana said. "Then it just turned sour."
According to TMZ, Chris Breezy's story goes a little something like this. Chris's goon squad jumped into action after the photog opened the door of the vehicle Chris and Rihanna were sitting in. They thought he was trying to enter the SUV.
Rebel Talking... Ouch, sounds like Pretty Boy Chris is rolling with some goons.
A Missy Situation
On the heels of 50 Cent popping off the mouth about her, former G-Unit songstress Olivia broke her silence during a video interview with Carlos King. [Watch here]
In the clip the "Bizzounce" singer says she hasn't had any time off since leaving G-Unit because she's been so busy working and touring. She claimed that many of her issues with 50 were the result of her being the only R&B act on the roster and him not knowing what to do with her. She claims this is the same thing that hindered her success at J Records. While she wouldn't name her new label home, she said she is currently signed and has worked on records with Missy Elliott, Ne-Yo, Rodney Jerkins and Brian Michael Cox.
Most importantly, Olivia denied rumors of any funny business between her and other G-Unit members. And her response to 50's claim that she slept with Missy was noticeably missing from the interview. Olivia did however find time to single out Wendy Williams, who she said, "instead of supporting a woman she is the one who goes out and talks mess about everybody".
Rebel Talking ... Talk about a softball interview - Olivia did Missy visit your "Candy Shop" or not???
Ring The Alarm
Jay-Z may have the baddest chick in the game rocking his chain, but she ain't wearing his ring. At Monday's Costume Institute Gala Beyoncé made her first red carpet appearance since her "wedding."
Of course all the nosy onlookers noticed that the R&B diva showed up ringless and with no sign of a bump from the baby she's been rumored to be carrying. This is after weeks of wedding talk, then pre-nup talk, and couple sighting after couple sighting, with still no confirmations from the bride or groom.
Rebel Talking... I'm getting sick of all this ring/no-ring, baby bump/no baby bump, wedding, pre-nuptial agreement, Jay-Z, Beyoncé business already. Like Hov says, let that b*tch breathe.
But while you were trashing the new Ciara song, we got a flash of Usher's new joint then rocked out to Jennifer Hudson's latest number while we wait for Bobby Brown's new DVD to hit the streets.
