Scroll down for update...

Do you remember sometime back I told that there was trouble in Timbaland's marriage? I won't go into specifics because my search function still works.

But I will tell you that my source (a female who Timbo confided in) told me that Timbo seemed depressed about his situation. This happened a couple of years ago.

Now fast forward to yesterday:

According to sources, the L.A. County Sheriff's Department put out a "possible suicide attempt" APB just before 5 PM PT yesterday. A helicopter and squad cars went on the hunt for the rapper/producer's Escalade.

Here's what we're told happened ... Timbaland was on the phone earlier in the day with his brother-in-law ... deeply upset about something. We're told one of the things that was eating at him was a theft at his Malibu residence a day before. Someone had stolen a crazy expensive Jacob & Co. watch -- valued at $2 million -- and Timbaland suspected it might have been someone he trusted.

Timbaland left his home yesterday and began driving. Family members couldn't locate him, became extremely worried and called the Sheriff's Department.

We're told the helicopter located the Escalade, ground crews pulled Timbaland over and began talking to him. At some point they put Timbaland in a patrol car and took him to his residence, where they continued speaking with him and family members.

Deputies called for paramedics to come and evaluate Timbaland. After the evaluation, paramedics determined Timbaland was not a threat to himself and left.

We're told the Sheriff's Department is investigating the theft of Timbaland's jewelry and they have possible suspects. Source

I don't think Timbo's suicidal ideations has anything to do with a watch. Anytime a man confides in a female about problems involving his wife, there are definite issues at home.

Update:

According to TMZ, Timbaland just called into Ryan Seacrest's radio show, and confirmed someone stole something from him and that he was upset about it ... but says there was definitely no suicide attempt.

Timbaland said he simply took a drive to clear his head, when someone got a little too worried about him and called the cops.

Update II, 2:56 PM ET:

TMZ has obtained the Timbaland 911 call, in which his mother-in-law desperately declares an emergency -- stating the rapper/producer was "tired of the stress" ... and noted that he was near a cliff.


As you know, longtime member aqtpie was among the 5 lucky winners of the Takers screening and after party tickets. Unfortunately, she is unable to attend due to personal reasons. She emailed me this morning to say,

"I have been a faithful reader from the start and I finally won a contest that I didn't even try out for... This is a once in a lifetime chance you have to choose who deserves them or maybe do a quick poll!! Thank you so much Sandra."

It's very difficult to make a decision because everyone is deserving of the chance to attend. The tickets must go to one winner and their guest (not two members because only one name goes on the list).

So I decided to take Cutie's suggestion and do a quick poll. Please vote for the member you think deserves the tickets most. Voting ends at 11:30 AM.

The ink hasn't even dried on the divorce papers yet, but Tiger Woods's ex-wife Elin Nordegren is already running her mouth to the media.

Whatever happened to online reports that Woods paid Elin $100 million for her silence? I guess you can't believe everything you read on the Internet huh?

Nordegren, 30, is not only talking to the media but she's apparently getting paid to spill the beans about her troubled marriage to the malignant narcissist.

Beyonce and Jay Z continued their holiday in the French Riviera with Jay Z's only son, Isa Jael. Before you reach for your keyboards, hear me out. I was told by a good source that Mr. Carter is getting along in age and he wants to form a strong relationship with his only child (that we know of).


Bey is an evil, selfish woman, but even she can see that the boy needs his father. She still keeps her distance from him though. Notice how you never see Bey and the child together in the same photos?


While Jigga went boating with his son and a bodyguard, Bey busied herself by sunning on a yacht and keeping entertained on her iPad. Isa's mother is former video vixen Shenelle Scott. The boy and his mother live in Trinidad.

Lindsay Lohan's celebrity and money has bought her her freedom. The troubled actress was sprung from a UCLA rehab facility last night by a sympathetic judge who followed her doctors recommendations that she be immediately released.

Lohan sneaked out the back door of the facility to avoid the throngs of paparazzi waiting outside.

Lindsay was admitted to UCLA on August 2nd for a psychological evaluation after a short stay in prison for violating her probation. Lohan's doctors at UCLA discovered the actress was misdiagnosed by doctors at another rehab facility where she was originally supposed to go after leaving prison.

The UCLA doctors determined that Lohan was neither bipolar nor addicted to drugs. They successfully weaned Lohan off a cocktail of prescription medications, including sleeping pills and psychotropic drugs.

Meanwhile Lohan busied herself on her Blackberry lining up movie offers and interviews where she will spill her guts about roughing it for the past 35 days.

Whether she will learn her lesson from this ordeal remains to be seen. I doubt it though.


Troubled singer Fantasia Barrino performed live on 'Good Morning America' yesterday. She was in NYC to promote her new album. Fantasia's name remains on everyone's lips 2 weeks after her supposed attempted suicide.


Anyone who believes Fantasia swallowed a whole bottle of Aspirin also believes Souljah Boy didn't know Katstacks was filming him in that hotel room. Fantasia's comeback album, Back To Me, dropped yesterday. I gave the album a C- because I had to fast forward through the first 7 tracks to find anything worth listening to.


Actress Meagan Good has a really good excuse for why she's always wearing rolled up daisy dukes -- she's putting out a clothing line which includes the iconic shorts. Okay, I'm lying. Meagan and a friend partied at Trousdale nightclub in West Hollywood, CA last night. She told the paparazzi she doesn't care what anyone thinks about her personal style.

Rapper Rocko Da Don responded to rumors today about his breakup with R&B singer Monica with this tweet on his Twitter page:

I'm gonna address this one time and one time only..

@Monicamylife and I are life partners.. We have 2 beautiful kids together and I have the utmost respect for her. But just to set the record str8 her and I broke up October 09.. That's almost a year ago.. Why all of this is still being discussed I have no idea.. I am very happy that Monica has found someone else in which she can be happy with. But I felt the need to address this issue after being informed that my name was mentioned today in a blog in a negative manner. Just to set the record str8 I am a stand up dude. I have morals and live by certain principles and codes. I would not stand for my name to be associated with any of this he say she say immaturity.

Moving forward I would appreciate if the media respect my privacy and not mention my name when referring to Monica's present or future personal relationships...

I don't have the time nor luxury to be concerned with other peoples lives right now I'm too focused on my own!
I'd like to apologize to my twitter fam for the neglect. I've been overwhelmed shooting my debut film thru my new A1 film company and finishing up my sophomore album " 1 of 1" both scheduled for a jan. 2011 release.
With that being said I wish everyone the best as I continue to strive to be better !
Stay tuned for a big announcement coming from me soon!!!

In All Sincerity,
Rocko

I had no clue. Not that I really care who Shaq is dating these days. But why shack up with a slut like Hoopz?

According to TMZ:

Shaquille O'Neal got more than he bargained for when he sat down for breakfast at a Waffle House in Tennessee last week -- because the dude was the target of a practical joke that was executed to perfection.

Sources at the Waffle House -- yeah, we got those too -- tell us Shaq arrived with Hoopz from the VH1 reality show "Flavor of Love" ... and they both saddled up at the counter.

We're told they each ordered scrambled eggs with cheese and a waffle -- and Shaq had an orange juice ... an OJ that would play a key role in the prank when Shaq got up to use the bathroom.

We're told Hoopz pulled the 'ol "Dump the salt in the OJ" routine -- and when Shaq returned from the can, he took a big, fat sip of the tainted concoction. We're told everybody laughed at the gag ... including the big man.

But the best part of the meal -- when it came time to pay the $20 bill ... Shaq left a $30 tip.


Entrepreneur Evelyn Lozada, who has emerged as the face of VH1's hit reality TV show Basketball Wives, was once a video vixen sashaying her hips in music videos such as Jay Z's "I Just Wanna Love You (Give it 2 Me)".

This according to my sharp-eyed reader, Justtina K., who spotted the young Evelyn Lozada wearing a powder blue dress and bikini throughout this video.

If you notice, Evelyn manages to keep her face out of most of the video frames. No doubt because she knew she had a daughter at home who would one day be old enough to view the video (Shaniece would have been 7 when this video was made back in 2000).

Justtina writes:

Hey Sandra,

I was watching videos the other day and Jay-Z's video "Give it to me" came on. I know this may be old but one of the girls in the video dancing looks just like Evelyn Lozada. You know she had the biggest issue with the way Royce was dancing. Just wondering if you can confirm this for me.

The blogosphere is once again buzzing that songbird Mariah Carey is pregnant with husband Nick Cannon's baby. And once again, Nick is jumping through hoops to downplay the rumors.

How many times do we have to go through this same song and dance? Obviously, if Mariah was pregnant enough to show, then they would have announced it by now. Right? So give the rumors a rest already, because she is clearly not pregnant.

Mariah is 40 now. As women age, our hormonal production begins to slow down. That's when fat cells accumulate around our abdomen giving the appearance of pregnancy. For all we know, Mariah is probably premenopausal.

Here's what 29-year-old Nick had to say about the situation to New York’s 92.3 FM station yesterday (pay attention to the text in bold and read between the lines):

I've have said it before and I’ll say it time and time again: when my wife feels like talking about whatever she wants to talk about, you will hear it directly from her.

We all know it’s extremely personal, and it’s for a woman to deal with things with her body, especially when dealing with the idea of childbirth and all that stuff.

That is something you want to keep near and dear and as close to you as you possibly can, until you’re 100% sure. In any situation, there is a certain time limit you’re supposed to wait before you can actually officially say that you are and all that stuff. You don’t want to mislead anybody.

TRANSLATION (this is what Nick really meant to say):

Mariah and I are not yet pregnant. She has issues going on with her body and stuff that's related to her age. But we are spending obscene amounts of money on fertility doctors because Mariah and I really need this pregnancy to keep us both relevant. Please Pray for us.

You may recall back in February, I posted information about a contest involving singer/songwriter Sean Garrett. I told you that he would select a few of you to spend the day inside his studio so you can watch him craft hits.

Garrett wasn't asked for money or for gifts. He was simply asked to give of his time, which he agreed to do -- as long as he received face time on my blog in return.

Sean and I discussed this contest at length over a period of 4 weeks. We even discussed it in person over lunch. And when the deadline passed without a word from him, I emailed Garrett to remind him. But Sean conveniently ignored my emails.

In the meantime, he emailed me promotional videos and shots of himself shirtless or with a LSLH chick on the set of of his music videos, which I posted.

But I politely declined to post more promo photos of him in July, and I again reminded him of his commitment. I never heard back from him until last night when I told his publicist via email that I was done supporting Garrett.

She had emailed me to invite me to his "mixtape" party at the Gold Room where he planned to give away 2 Louis Vuitton bags.

When I told her (in so many words) that Sean could kick rocks, Garrett quickly responded with this email blurb:

Please Call me Sandra u know I love me some Sandra
I just got really really overwelmed and I need to make this up to u.Please call me asap

Does his pathetic pleading remind you of anyone?

Sean Garrett is an example of a self-absorbed, self-centered narcissist who thinks the world revolves around him. Like most celebrity narcissists, he doesn't feel the need to honor commitments or to apologize for bad behavior unless it's absolutely necessary for them to keep their narcissistic supply flowing.

Well, his 15 minutes are over as far as I'm concerned.

Just so you know: this is the man that Barack Obama and the state department flew to the Middle East last week -- on your dime -- to perform Muslim outreach.

New audio has surfaced of the imam behind the controversial mosque near Ground Zero allegedly telling an audience overseas that the United States has been far more deadly than al-Qaeda. We tend to forget, in the West, that the United States has more Muslim blood on its hands than al-Qaeda" has on its hands of innocent non Muslims," Feisal Abdul Rauf said at a 2005 lecture sponsored by the University of South Australia. Read more...

The most interesting exchange comes at the 1:40 mark when a woman in the audience asks Imam Rauf about Muslim men who go on suicide missions to bomb innocent women and children in the belief that they will be awarded with 72 virgins in Heaven.

She asked if there is something in the Qu'ran or their religion "that makes them more prepared to go off and die in the belief that they will be closer to God?"

Rauf answered the question by saying: "the Qu'ran says you shall have whatever your heart desires."

Rauf also tosses the word "ni**ers" around to make a point about ethnic conflict. You think he could have made his point without the use of the N-word?

Golf great Tiger Woods and his former wife Elin Nordegren are officially divorced. That means Tiger can go back to propping up his inflated ego with living blow up dolls, and Elin can move on with her life.

TMZ has obtained the divorce documents filed in the Tiger Woods split ... in which the marriage is described as "irretrievably broken."

According to the docs, Tiger and Elin Nordegren reached a settlement agreement way back at the beginning of July -- July 3rd and 4th.

Elin says in the docs that she wants her maiden name restored -- Elin Maria Pernilla Nordegren.

According to the documents, both Tiger and Elin have each completed a 4-hour parenting course.

UPDATE: We've also obtained the final judgment papers. It states the marriage "is hereby dissolved because it is irretrievably broken." 1. In addition, Elin's request to restore her maiden name was granted.

Ha ha ha, she doesn't even want his name. Good for you Elin!

According to ABC News, prominent evangelist Rev. Franklin Graham (son of evangelist Billy Graham) has weighed in on the Barack Obama faith controversy.

The Rev. Franklin Graham waded into the discussion with his own controversial explanation of why people wrongly believe the president is a Muslim. Graham, who prayed with Obama in a session with his father, Billy Graham, earlier this year, was asked whether he has any doubts about Obama's self-avowed Christian faith.

"I think the president's problem is that he was born a Muslim, his father was a Muslim. The seed of Islam is passed through the father like the seed of Judaism is passed through the mother. He was born a Muslim, his father gave him an Islamic name," Graham told CNN's John King in a televised interview that aired Thursday night.

"Now it's obvious that the president has renounced the prophet Mohammed, and he has renounced Islam, and he has accepted Jesus Christ. That's what he says he has done. I cannot say that he hasn't. So I just have to believe that the president is what he has said," Graham continued, adding that "the Islamic world sees the president as one of theirs." Read More...

As you know, one in five Americans polled said they believe Obama is a Muslim. That accounts for roughly 20% of the population.

The White House responded that Obama is a strict Christian and that he "prays every day." That may be so, but who is he praying to?

Obama didn't just up and decide one day to run for president of the United States. His rapid ascension to the White House was carefully planned and executed. Embedded spies are taught to blend in with the population and to assume their habits and rituals so as not to draw attention to himself.

So I am not surprised that Obama renounced Muhammad and converted to practicing the Christian faith by hiding out in Rev. Wright's church that he rarely attended.

I told you right here on Sandrarose.com that star of VH1's Basketball Wives, Evelyn Lozada and gridiron star chad Ochocinco were an item. I also told you that, according to a producer, Chad would appear on the 2nd season of Basketball Wive's as Evelyn's love interest.

Now everyone else is reporting it:

Evelyn Lozada is dating Ochocinco prompting fans of Chad’s reality show to realize he probably doesn’t pick any of the ladies in the season finale. In May, Evelyn Lozada made it clear she wasn’t dating Chris Brown, tweeting “Please, let me clear something up. Me and Chris Brown are not dating, absolutely not”. “I didn’t say two words to that boy” said Lozada after pictures surfaced online of her next to Brown at a nightspot.

By July, it became clear exactly who Evelyn Lozada is dating, Chad Ochocinco. Only one problem – Ochocinco is leading viewers to believe he is searching for love on a current VH-1 “reality” show.

VH-1 said of Chad earlier this year “His bigger than life personality on and off the field, and his notorious skills as a social networker, connecting daily with his fans, makes him a perfect fit for VH1.” Read more...

LALate.com also says Shaquille O'Neal is engaged to former reality TV personality Hoopz. But I don't believe that one.

On Friday, I received a ton of emails from readers asking about R&B singer Monica stealing Lakers guard Shannon Brown from another woman. I didn't know Brown was married.

In fact he's not married. Nor was he in a relationship with anyone when he met and wooed Monica. Just because a man has a child with a groupie does not mean he's engaged to said groupie.

Brown made a mistake by sleeping with a Laker groupie and impregnating her. But now he's taking responsibility for his youthful indiscretions. Brown is paying his child support and he is involved in the child's life.

Now he has met the woman of his dreams and he knows what love is. Of course the groupie is butt hurt and now she's running to the blogs with her lies. By the way, these are my words and no one else's.

So can we let these rumors die?

Brown responded to the allegations on his Twitter page:

“I write this to set the record straight. Media deception makes unfair and false reports of the truth, and it does not bring out the best in ANYONE. Monica is my girlfriend, confidant and a strong successful women that has been though a lot herself but she is in no way, a home wrecker. As a parent, I understand that parenting requires a partnership with my sons mother however the relationship between us fizzled a long time ago. Thus, never leading up to seven years, engagement or even talks of marriage. As parents, we have to continue to raise our son, and as individuals we both deserve happiness.” Thank you for the support and God Bless!

Waka Flocka is shown here rockin' his money green Jet Pack from the Louis Stewart Collection. The Jet Packs have become so popular among the Hip Hop elite that someone reportedly stole Mr. Stewart's SUV in Beverly hills recently. The SUV was loaded down with custom Louis Stewart Jet Packs -- two of which belonged to me.

Loyal reader Tamiko writes:

Hi Sandra-

I wanted to send you a few pics of Mizay Entertainment and Warner Brothers artist Waka Flocka doing some good in the community, as well as wearing one of designer Louis Stewart's bags. Waka, as well as a few other Mizay Entertainment artists decided to pass out ice cold water to the homeless in downtown Atlanta last week, all whom were thankful to the rapper and his crew being that temperatures were in the high 90's. Thanks in advance!

As you know, I sometimes take weekends off to recharge my batteries. That stil didn't stop my loyal readers from emailing me all weekend about Ciara and 50 Cent leaving some hotel in NY. So what if they were staying at the same hotel??? That doesn't mean he's knocking her down every night. Just to prove it I called the hotel and made an inquiry. Sure enough, they were staying on different floors! I'm told that this isn't the first time Ciara has checked into Fiddy's hotel. At this point in her career she needs him more than he needs her. Use your brains kids.


On the other hand, two people who don't have to pretend they are a couple are rapper T.I. and his adorable wife Tiny. The lovebirds were spotted at LAX over the weekend. As you know, Tiny travels with her man everywhere he goes. He never lets her out of his sight! That's true love right there! By the way, the live drawing for the Takers tickets will be tomorrow right here on Sandrarose.com! A celebrity will be doing the drawing. I'm told that T.I. himself might be doing the drawing but I can't make any promises. So stay tuned to see who it is!

According to ABC News, former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich has hinted that Barack Obama is under federal investigation.

It is not unusual for the Feds to have a secret dossier on the sitting president of the United States -- just ask former president Bill Clinton, who was impeached in 1998.

Blagojevich sat down with ABC News Chief Investigative Correspondent Brian Ross today (Aug. 20) to discuss his possible return to politics. A jury this week found him guilty of only one count out of 24: lying to federal agents.

Blagojevich said that after he was arrested for corruption in 2008, federal agents visited with him in his Chicago jail cell.

He said they pressed him for information on certain higher ups in government. Blago -- as he is fondly referred to by the media -- noted that, at the time, there was no one higher up in government than himself -- except for the President of the United States.

"When they had me in custody they were very clear about they wanted me to cooperate and talk about people in higher places, and with all due respect to Mayor Daley, there's no one higher than Governor," he said.

"You're talking about then president-elect Obama?" Ross asked.

"I'm not saying that right now." Asked who else he could mean, Blagojevich shifted uncomfortably in his seat.

"Is it your impression they were thinking about Obama?" Ross pressed.

"I have my own personal opinion but from where I'm sitting right now it's probably better for me not to talk about it." He then grinned, "If I'm guilty of anything it's that I talk too much."

For decades a clandestine arm of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has operated in secret, collecting documents and cataloguing evidence to bring down members of Congress who got too happy with federal funds.

Reps. Charles Rangel and Maxine Waters have both been indicted on dozens of federal charges by the House Ethics Committee. Though both Rangel and Waters vigorously deny the charges, their political futures look bleak.

Usher is a good dad. The R&B crooner was spotted arriving at Early Show Plaza for his live performance on the CBS Early Show in New York this morning. He was accompanied by his sons, Usher 'Cinco' Raymond V, 3, and Naviyd Ely Raymond, 2.

Music mogul Master P's son, Lil Romeo Miller, celebrated his 21st birthday with family and friends, including and actress Meagan Good, yesterday. Is it safe to assume that they're knockin' the boots? The former rapper and USC basketball player, held his birthday celebration at Millions of Milkshakes in W. Hollywood.

A crowd of about 100 screaming fans sang "Happy Birthday" to Romeo as he walked the red carpet.

In addition to helping raise money for charity, Romeo also had some sympathetic words for actress Lindsay Lohan, who was reportedly diagnosed with a personality disorder by docs at UCLA.

Loyal reader Marteeta C. sent in this video of her adorable 3-year-old son, Jayson, after watching this disgraceful video of a child being videotaped "riding it" to Ciara's song.

Jayson gives us all inspiration, and gives me hope that all is not lost in our community as long as we have parents like Marteeta who instills values and importance of education in our children!

Hi Sandra,

Just watched that video of that little girl and I weep for my people! We should be educating our youth not destroying them with all of the graphic sexual images on TV, videos, video games etc.

This is my son, Jayson in the attached video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=atM9T0YOvy4
he was 3 years old in the video and he better not ever bring a little "heffa" like that to our home. My husband and I believe in training our children to be assets to this society and not liabilities.

Have a great day Sandra!
Sincerely,
Marteeta

PS(I know that the word is heifer...I can spell and I happen to be a college grad)

Another reader emailed me to say she knows the father -- yes, the father -- who videotaped his daughter performing sexually suggestive dance moves. Apparently the child's mother is in prison.

I urged the reader to call her local child welfare authorities to report the father for uploading that video to the Internet and exploiting a minor child.
