If the pictures of a bloated Mariah Carey falling onstage in Singapore didn’t give us a reason to worry for her health, maybe these pictures will. Mariah is shown in a wheelchair being transported out of her hotel to a waiting car in Singapore.
As I told you earlier this week, industry insiders are whispering about the extent of singer Mariah Carey’s mystery illness. Some say Mariah’s medical problem could threaten her career. We know she isn’t pregnant, so we can only speculate as to what her medical problem could be.
According to US magazine, Mariah’s rep Cindi Berger claims Mariah twisted her ankle when she slipped and fell about 2 feet to the stage in Singapore. How did she twist her ankle so severely in that little bitty fall that she required a wheelchair?
Anyway, here’s what Cindi said:
“Mariah twisted her ankle in Singapore and should have packed more sensible shoes, but she doesn’t have any,” her rep, Cindi Berger, tells UsMagazine.com. “I’m sending her a pair of flats today.”

Rapper Young Jeezy celebrated his 33rd birthday at Butter in NYC last night, and the Hip Hop glitteratti turned out in force. Jeezy’s mixtape The Last Laugh officially dropped today. So far it’s getting mixed reviews. But the project that everyone is anticipating — Jeezy’s 4th studio album, TM 103, still has no official release date.
You know Jay Z isn’t going to miss an opportunity to get his picture taken — the attention whore that he is.
The fourth (and oldest) Bishop Eddie Long accuser has broken his silence about the alleged sexual abuse he suffered at the hands of “predator” Bishop Eddie Long.
Fox 5‘s Dale Russell flew to Colorado to speak with Jamal Parris. He met up with the former LongFellows Academy student outside a grocery store.
“You look at our eyes,” Jamal Parris said. “You hear the pain in our voice. We have no reason to lie to this man.”
“I loved him,” Parris said. “I’m always going to have love for the things that he taught me. But how he left us hurt worse than anything I ever felt in my life.”
“You finally have a father that you’ve always wanted for and always dreamed of,” Parris said. “He would just walk away from you if you don’t give him what he wants. So you end up turning into something you never thought you would be, which is now a slave to a man that you love.” Source
Jamal Parris — who is 23 — was 20-years-old when he alleges that the bishop lavished him with gifts, cash, trips and cars in return for sex. He goes on to say the bishop used him and then dumped him. Really? That’s called LIFE. People get dumped every day. You’re a grown man. Deal with it!
I hope B.J. Bernstein can come up with a better “victim” than these four. I am getting tired of these weak men who made conscious decisions to sleep with a middle aged man.
it’s become painfully clear that Benstein has no evidence other than the stories of those men — none of whom are credible. I can’t believe Fox 5 wasted plane fare on this story.
Shouts to Angela Watts (AWMedia Group), Donna Newman and Elle German for the links!
Pop star Rihanna (and her red wig) was seen leaving popular NY eatery Da Silvanos yesterday. RiRi seems to be miserable without her bestie Melissa Ford around. We also haven’t seem much of her boyfriend Matt. But that’s probably because it’s baseball season.
Afterward, Rihanna and Melody Thornton attended Drake’s after party at Greenhouse in NYC. Melody is telling friends she and Kanye are “just friends.” Can you blame her for wanting to set the record straight?
Rapper Drake performed a live concert at Radio City Music Hall in NYC last night.
Rappers Fabolous and J. Cole also attended Drake’s after party last night (though not together).
Big block party in West Orange, NJ, the same block where Jay Z’s mom lives. Jay Z and Beyonce went to visit his mom when the DJ start playing music, Beyonce came out to dance with the neighbors.

Now they’re saying that’s not even Beyonce dancing in the video.

Hey Sandra I wanted to leave a comment but couldn’t cause I am not registered.
Anyway I watched the clip on your blog and I realized from the other comments that I am the only one thinking this is not beyonce at ALL. This lookalike is clearly trying to hide her face from the camera and the others around just don’t seem excited enough. Is it just me?
Please have a look at the clip again. And would she really go to visit her mom on law with her hair looking like that? I just wonder
Update II, 9:20 pm ET:
According to loyal reader MUNCHOSGIRL — who is quite diligent about disputing rumors concerning Beyonce — Jay Z’s nephew @RelCarter confirms that it is indeed his auntie Beyonce tossing her wig in the above video.
Rihanna’s LOUD red hair has tongues wagging everywhere. That neon red lacefront wig perched on top of her head has RiRi’s fans all atwitter. People either love it or hate it. We hate it! But we also realize Rihanna has an album to promote. And what better way to promote an album titled LOUD?
Hollywoodlife.com reached out to Rihanna’s stylist Ursula Stephens to explain why she’s ruining RiRi’s iconic status with that awful red wig.
HL: How was the decision to go red made? Was it yours or Rihanna’s? Ursula Stephen: It was actually a mutual decision we made together. We had just wanted to do it at different times, but, as it happened in the end, the timing was perfect and we decided to go for it!
HL: Are these extensions? If so, are they real or synthetic? Ursula Stephen: We’re using real human hair extensions, which are colored. The process to install them is simple: they’re bonded onto her actual hair.
HL: How does she like them. Does she love the new look? Ursula Stephen: She loves the whole new look, especially the color! It’s her new favorite thing.
HL: Will she have to have relaxers in the meantime? What products will you use to maintain her look? Ursula Stephen: Rihanna will definitely get relaxers in the meantime. I use Motions Silkening Shine Relaxer System to keep it sleek, shiny, and conditioned.
HL: What would you suggest to women who would like to copy her look? Any advice they can take to their stylist? Ursula Stephen: My advice when copying someone’s look is always to make it your own! Work with your stylist to create a look that suits you and your personality. If you think this is a look that will suit you and your personality, then work with your stylist to create it!
Great info! But I wish HL had asked Ursula if Rihanna realizes she looks like a clown?
LeBron James’ former teammate Delonte West has once agin denied a rumor that he slept with LeBron’s mom Gloria Jones.
How many times does he have to deny this stupid rumor before people will believe it? Why do some people stubbornly cling to this rumor when there is not an iota of evidence to support it?
Even Delonte’s denial is being questioned by a few of my readers, even though the man clearly said “Not at all.”
Finally, LeBron’s former teammate has been asked directly about the gossip. According to the Boston Globe, a reporter asked West if he slept with Gloria James.
“Not at all,” West replied. “I come from an era where you don’t say nothing bad about someone’s parent, so not at all.” West, now with the Celtics, is looking forward to playing with his new team. “There’s a lot of excitement here,” he said.
The reason Delonte said he comes “from an era where you don’t say nothing bad about someone’s parent,” is because the rumor itself is shockingly disrespectful to Ms. James and LeBron.
Yesterday I posted pics of Halle Berry out and about with her daughter Nahla and her “assistant” who we believe is carrying on a steamy love affair with the Oscar winner.
No sooner did those pics hit the wire services then Halle was spotted rushing through LAX airport en route to Paris, France. It appears that Halle left her daughter with her “assistant” in order to rush to France to comply with a contractual agreement that calls for Halle to perpetuate a fraudulent romance with her co-star Olivier Martinez.
I see no sparks flying between the two of them. In addition to that, he’s not her type: Martinez is neither handsome nor gay. And I sincerely doubt that Martinez is in Paris — alone — pining away for Halle while she’s in LA with her “assistant.”
