I heard from Ciara's camp tonight about yet another dumb rumor. Anyway, CiCi is on the West Coast rehearsing for the BET Awards next Tuesday. She sent word through her camp that she's not getting married to her boo 50 Cent. If you recall, I confirmed the rumors that the couple are very much in love.

While there are still some out there who doubt my word, Ciara and Fiddy are living their lives as one of Hip Hop's hawtest couples!

But wait, did Young Buck shed light on Ciara's and Fiddy's relationship on his new 50 Cent diss track "Taped Conversations"? Yes he did - and in a big way!

"Ciara go while you got a chance/Let a real nigga put a band on ya hand", raps Buck. OK now Fiddy has to come back hard 'cause Buck put baby girl smack dab in the middle of their beef! And that aint right!

So I put in a call in to Ciara's people to tell them to halt Ciara's BET rehearsals and get a response from her asap. I'll get back to you with Ciara's response. :)

Miss Info has the exclusive audio of Young Buck's lyrical response to 50 Cent's ethering of him. Yesterday, Miss Info posted audio of a taped phone call between 50 Cent and a weepy, teary eyed Young Buck begging Fiddy to take him back.

His rap career in shambles, Buck responded the best way he knew how - with a diss track. While the streets laughed at him, Buck was holed up in a studio last night recording. Claiming the phone call was taped "a year ago", Buck does his best T.I. impersonation on this track titled "Taped Conversation".

"Ery man got an emotional side to him," Buck raps. "So yeah, they heard the emotional side of me, but they see the bitch nigga in you Fifty."

Our friend, rap artist Young Jeezy was ticketed by Atlanta police early this morning for driving with no tags on his brand new Corvette.

According to TMZ.com, Jeezy's official explanation was the drive-out (temporary) tag fell off when Jeezy took his fresh-off-the-lot Corvette to a car wash. As for the open container in the vehicle, that belonged to the passenger in the car. Anyone who knows Jeezy knows he never goes anywhere alone.

He rides in a convoy of vehicles which are always in front of and behind him. So why would cops pull him over for speeding? That would never happen. So stop getting your info from BOGUS websites! Always keep it here for the truth with no filler!

US Open champ Tiger Woods will miss the rest of the 2008 PGA season due to damaged ligaments in his left knee, according to his personal website.

Woods is scheduled to have surgery to repair a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee - the same knee he had surgery on in April. Additionally, Woods suffered a "double stress fracture'" in the tibia, the bigger bone, of his lower left leg while rehabilitating from that surgery. The ligament tear occurred while Woods was running in the weeks after the 2007 British Open, according to a statement on Woods' website.

"Now, it is clear that the right thing to do is to listen to my doctors, follow through with this surgery, and focus my attention on rehabilitating my knee,'' Woods said. Doctors assured him there "will be no long-term'' effects.

BET has pissed quite a few people off here lately. Ever since the company was swallowed up by media conglomerate Viacom, which also owns VH1 and MTV - the network has lost its soul.

Protesters are still calling BET "a modern-day minstrel show". Now singer Michelle Williams has exposed the network on her blog saying BET execs refuse to play her music because it isn't "urban enough". Writes Michelle:

"A lot of you guys are wondering why it's not on BET!!! Well how can I say this without starting any drama........it may not be "urban" enough!!! Whatever the hell that means!!! (this is the political foolishness we artists go through on a daily basis)"

Now this is the same BET that recently named gossip blogger Perez Hilton for one of its Top 5 blogs awards.

What part of Perez Hilton's blog is urban? That blog is hands down the most racist blog on the Internets. You would think that BET would give that spot to another urban blogger especially since Perez Hilton couldn't give a damn about BET or anybody up there unless they're cutting him a check.

Does the other urban bloggers on that list have a chance in hell against him? What's the point? Oh yeah I forgot, his show is on VH1 which is owned by Viacom which owns BET.

Rumor has it that Rihanna was really feeling football star Kerry Rhodes at her 'Good Girl Gone Bad' DVD screening at Guesthouse in NYC last night. Allegedly, someone in the crowd mentioned Chris' name to her and she responded, "who?"

When did Pleather come back in vogue?

Normally Michelle Obama is the picture of perfection when she's campaigning for her husband Barack Obama. But we've never really seen Michelle let her hair down and party with celebrities, have we? I LOVE her outfit, but Mrs. Obama has way too much going on in the neck area. Basic black does not need to be accessorized to death. The old saying less is more certainly applies here.

I want to say Spike Lee is one of Leon Andre Talley's famous clients, but even Mr. Talley wouldn't commit such an offense with one of his clients. The entire look is a disaster: the loud shirt, the man purse, the hat. I just can't.

LL Cool J and his wife Simone arrive at the home of Calvin Klein for a private party on Tuesday (6/17)


Speak of the devil: just a couple of days ago I asked why Spike Lee and his wife Tonya Lewis Lee are never seen together and here they are. The couple attended a private party at Calvin Klein's palatial spread in Manhattan yesterday.

Greg Street hosted the Meet & Greet at DBS Sounds

Rap artist Pliers was in town last week for the Hot 107.9 Birthday Bash festivities. He also made time to meet his fans and sign copies of his CD Definition of Real.

Later that night, Pliers made a paid appearance at PURE nightclub. I'm told the VIP was thick with hongry hoochies willing to pay $100 to get close to their sex symbol. I don't get it.

The women can't get enough of rap artist 50 Cent. Maybe it's his dazzling smile enhanced by his new porcelain choppers? Fiddy says he's constantly being harassed by naked women in his hotel rooms - and he's complaining.

He said: "I've been in hotel rooms, and girls were already there in the closet - naked." When asked if he accepts their offers for quick sex, he said he declines because it borders on prostitution. What type of cheap hotels is he staying in?

The Boston Celtics won a record 17th NBA Championship in a 131-92 blow out over the LA Lakers in game 6 of the NBA Finals in Boston.

Audio of Young Buck crying and begging during a phone call to 50 Cent was released on the Internet today. But just the day before (6/16), Buck showed his true colors in a videotaped rant at a performance, saying, "f*ck G-Unit!"

"The difference between me and muthaf*ckin' 50 Cent is that n*gga, I can hit the bottom... the gutta n*gga. I can get back in the streets... it's a thousand dope boys - even if I be broke - that will hand me me every piece of work that they got!"

Oh really? Where were those dope boys when Buck was crying like a b*tch on the phone begging for his job back? Where was all that tough talk then?

These are the "men" that our kids look up to? I'm glad 50 Cent released the audio of the phone call to prove what a two-faced b*tch Young Buck really is. Now can we bury Hip Hop once and for all?

Who knew that Young Buck was a bitch at heart? Isn't this the "thug" that you ladies lust after and he turns out to be a bottom bitch?

After slinging mud at G-Unot and 50 Cent, Young Buck tears up in a phone call to Fiddy and begs Fiddy to take him back into the fold cause he's, well, broke. On the other hand, this call exposes the fraudulent lifestyles most of these rappers live. All that perpetrating like they're millionaires when in reality, they're broke and borrowing from Peter to pay Paul.

I bet Monica's glad she didn't stay with this punk! :)

After winning the U.S. Open in sudden death yesterday, Tigers Woods called his daughter Sam the 'greatest thing in the world'.

After his historic (and close) victory in San Diego, following months of knee troubles, Woods said, "There's no way I could have gotten through this without Sam being there ... just watching her grow, walking, running now, it's been just the greatest thing in the world."

It was the first time Sam, who turns one on Wednesday, attended the Open. (Source)

XXlmag.com's webmaster is probably on the unemployment line as I type this. The poor sap committed the ultimate sin of allowing the domain name to expire. How does that happen? Did they forget to renew?

I wish I had the money they're losing just in today's ad revenue alone. I probably could take a trip to Ibiza for a week! Hopefully, XXL can work things out and get their domain back.

Aww, isn't she purr-ty?

Usher arrived in his new Ferrari, and club security rushed him through a back entrance into the club. Usher ignored my photographer's requests for a photo. Let's see: he's at an after party for one of the biggest events of the year... he knows there'll be photographers there... yet he has an attitude? Why come out at all?

Could his stank attitude be part of the reason why his album flopped? No, it couldn't be that simple.

On the other hand, Young Jeezy showed my photog a lot of love. That's why we show him love. See how easy it is?

Poor Mariah and Nick Carrey were forced to cancel their 2nd wedding due to lack of funds. Mariah planned a big splashy 2nd wedding after marrying Nick Cannon in a secret ceremony in April.

But the wedding Mariah had her heart set on was much too expensive. So Mariah planned to pay the expenses with funds she earned from selling the rights to exclusive photos of her 2nd wedding. Here's the problem: no magazines were interested in exclusive rights to the pics.

A source told In Touch Weekly magazine: "The small wedding in the Bahamas was nice, but it was not Mariah’s style. The lady loves a spectacle."

"Mariah was willing to pay for the wedding, but the way she hoped to pay for the wedding was through the sale of photos. No one was interested." (Source)

If you recall, People magazine paid a modest sum to Mariah for the exclusive rights to her and Nick's first nuptials. But after that issue's poor sales, People won't make that same mistake again. So there will be no second wedding.

Can we officially say the honeymoon for those two scam artists is over?

When NY hotelier Leona Helmsley passed away last August, she left a nice chunk of her fortune - $12 million - to her pooch Trouble. Helmsley outlined in her will how she wanted the money spent on pampering her precious pet.

When her human heirs - her grandchildren - heard that they had been cut out of the will, they howled at the injustice of it all. A New York judge agreed and stripped Trouble of his inheritance. The pooch and his caretaker will now have to make do with a paltry $2 million.

Meanwhile, Helmsley's two grandchildren will each get $6 million proving, there is justice for spoiled rich brats after all.

A lone Boston Celtics fan takes on the Laker Nation single handedly while cops stand and watch.

The sore loser Lakers fans lashed out after Boston spanked team Kobe during game two in Boston.

As a result, Lakers bigwigs will not show game 6 on Jumbotrons at the Staples Center. Lakers fans will have to do their brawling in a local pub or at Ray Ray's crib.
