NFL troublemaker Brandon Marshall is in hot water again, this time for punching a woman in the face outside a New York nightclub. According to Fox Sports, Marshall was at Marquee in Chelsea early Sunday when he got into an argument with a group of friends celebrating a birthday. Marshall reportedly punched the birthday girl, Christin Myles, 24, in the face after, his lawyer claims, a bottle was thrown at his wife.
Myles suffered a black eye. She later filed a police report naming Marshall as the perpetrator. But Marshall's lawyer said the fight did not involve Marshall or his friends.
“While attempting to leave to avoid the melee [Marshall’s wife] was struck in the face by a thrown bottle. She suffered serious injury,” Harvey Steinberg said in a statement.
“While attempting to leave and take his wife to the hospital, the mayhem continued outside. Mr. Marshall is hoping to assist authorities in regards to this matter," said Steinberg.
Marshall's lawyer never denied that Marshall took a swing at Myles.
A few days after the fight, the Miami Dolphins unloaded Marshall in a trade to the Chicago Bears. The Bears front office claims not to know about the fight or the fact that Marshall is a loose cannon, who goes around punching women.

Civil Rights leader Al Sharpton is on his way to Sanford, Florida today to hopefully right a wrong. Sharpton plans to meet with the NAACP and influential pastors in Sanford on Wednesday to demand justice for 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
Trayvon was shot to death last month by 28-year-old self-appointed Neighborhood Watch "captain" George Zimmerman, who claims he was acting in self-defense.
Just moments before pulling the trigger, Zimmerman was on the phone with 911 dispatch, reporting he spotted a suspicious black man in his majority white subdivision. The 911 dispatcher told Zimmerman not to approach the man. But Zimmerman ignored that order and got out of his car. A fight ensued, and Trayvon was shot dead.
Sharpton plans to speak for Trayvon, who can't speak for himself. The Sanford police department spoke for Zimmerman when they let him walk -- without any charges -- for killing an unarmed teenager.
According to the Sanford police, Zimmerman had the right to defend himself with deadly force against the unarmed Trayvon, who is black. But Trayvon didn't have that same right when he was approached by a white man who probably hurled racial slurs at him.
Sharpton released a statement saying, "The fact that a young unarmed man could be killed by a neighborhood watch captain while his family was blatantly misled by local police as to the background of the shooter is disturbing."
In his statement, Sharpton also claims Zimmerman used racial language during the 911 call. Sharpton and Ttrayvon's parents are demanding the release of that 911 call.
Speaking of phone calls, President Obama still hasn't called Trayvon's family yet. But the president did place a phone call to pro-abortion activist Sandra Fluke, days after radio host Rush Limbaugh called her a "slut" live on the air.
Saying his call wasn't politically motivated, Mr. Obama explained it like this: "The reason I called Ms. [Sandra] Fluke is because of [my daughters]... I want them to be able to speak their mind in a civil and thoughtful way."
Mr. Obama probably doesn't care that Trayvon's parents have been speaking their minds in a civil and thoughtful way. Maybe if Mr. Obama had a son, he would acknowledge the Martins' pain and anguish the same way he acknowledged Sandra Fluke's. That's the least he could do.
Doesn't Drake look hawt on the cover of the very first issue of GQ magazine's "Style Bible" issue? Drake shares multiple covers with other hunky male celebs who have that bible swag.
Last night, GQ celebrated the new issue with a swanky party at the Jane Hotel in NYC. Even though Drake is on one of the covers, he was a no-show at the party. But rappers Nas, Q-Tip and singer Trey Songz were there to represent for the Metrosexuals, along with record mogul Kevin Liles, 2nd from right.

Singer Bruno Mars is on the cover of the April 2012 "Sex & Music" issue of Playboy. But it's not what you think. The modest singer didn't take it all off for Playboy (but you would love it if he did!)
From MTV Buzzworthy:
Inside the issue, Bruno kept things classy, talking mostly about his music, his influences, and who he'd most like to work with: "Jimi Hendrix. I think he’s the greatest guitar player in the world, and I would want to see him do his thing in person. He’s the reason I picked up a guitar in the first place." Something tells us Jimi would be pretty proud of your cover shoot, Bruno. Electric Ladyland, indeed.

Many of you commented on how much you liked the fanny pack that singer Rihanna was wearing in pics that I posted earlier today. According to fashion blog UpscaleHype, the "Cash Flow” fanny pack was made by Joyrich Dollar Sign, and it retails for only $90.00. Rihanna accessorized her fanny pack with a denim shirt, jeans, and a pair of biege blue sole lace-up flats.
Since we're on the subject of Rihanna, according to FOX News, RiRi's pastor is very concerned about her state of mind after it was confirmed that she is once again dating Chris Brown, who has abused her in the past. The pastor is also worried about her increasing dependency on drugs and alcohol.

When news of Whitney Houston's tragic death was announced on Feb. 11, everyone's thoughts were with her daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, 19. Few people knew she had a so-called "adopted son," named Nick Gordon. Later we learned that Whitney took Nick in when he was 11-years-old, but she never formally adopted him.
Now we find out that sometime after Nick moved into Whitney's home, he started getting real intimate with her daughter. Bobbi K. and Nick were spotting kissing and holding hands together last Friday outside a Target store in Johns Creek, Georgia, according to Hollywoodlife.com.
And last night, Nick updated his Twitter page to let everyone know: "Yea we got a little closer and what!!!" He also posted a new pic of himself and Bobbi Kristina together. This is the same dude who was reportedly being evicted from Whitney's home. I guess that's not happening now.
After Whitney passed away, a loyal reader emailed me photos of Nick Gordon taken from Bobbi K.'s Twitter account. The email author wondered if I would ask my readers to pray for her "adopted son." But I politely declined for two reasons: 1. I had never heard of Whitney having an adopted son, and 2. Bobbi K. and Nick looked like they were more than just siblings to me.
A source within singer Beyonce's camp told Sandrarose.com exclusively that the first-time mom is feeling sad and having trouble sleeping at night. The source revealed that Beyonce, 30, is having difficulty handling her duties as a mom to 7-week old daughter, Blue Ivy. "She's depressed and she's losing weight because she won't eat," said the source.
If this is true, Beyonce may be suffering from a clinical depression known as Postpartum Depression. Postpartum depression, which affects women after childbirth, can also affect women who have not given birth.
Postpartum Depression is not to be confused with the normal "baby blues" that some women feel in the weeks after childbirth, including moodiness and teariness. Postpartum Depression is more severe and the symptoms lasts longer than a few weeks.
Postpartum depression can occur when a woman feels sad, lonely and overwhelmed by a lack of support from her husband. According to my source, Beyonce thought a baby would improve her relations with Jay Z, 43, who spends a great deal of time at the studio.

According to the Chicago Suntimes, a source close to Whitney Houston's mother, Cissy Houston, revealed that Cissy confronted the traitor who sold the final photo of Whitney in an open casket to the National Enquirer.
The Houston family source said Cissy “had a come-to-Jesus moment” with the guilty party and demanded the alleged six-figure fee for the photo be donated to charity.
Insiders are whispering that the person who sold the final photo was most likely Whitney's closest friend and sister-in-law, Pat Houston, who signed at least one deal to profit off of Whitney's death.
