A few weeks ago, a source reached out to Sandrarose.com with a weird scoop: she told me that Rihanna was moving to my birthplace (London) to be closer to her new love.

"You're going to be shocked when you find out who it is," my source told me.

I lobbed a few guesses into the air but my source swatted all of my guesses down.

Never in a million years did I guess Rihanna's new lover would turn out to be British singer Rita Ora!!

My source has not confirmed this yet, but when you consider Rihanna's actions over the past few weeks, it makes total sense!

Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg, 28, married his longtime girlfriend, Priscilla Chan, in a secret ceremony at their $7 million Palo Alto, CA home on Saturday -- one day after his Facebook IPO made him $10 billion dollars richer.

But the Zuckerbergs' honeymoon is already over.

Just 2 days after Facebook's Wall Street underwriters scrambled to purchase over 300 million shares to keep Facebook's IPO afloat at $38, the stock opened 2 percent lower in pre-market trading this morning.

The social network made history with it's initial public offering on Friday, but Morgan Stanley, Facebook's chief underwriter, was forced to buy millions of shares to keep the stock at it's opening price. While that type of stock manipulation may sound illegal, it is perfectly legal according to Wall Street analysts.

Now there are new concerns that Facebook stocks will start trading at below it's IPO value when the bell rings on Wall Street at 9:30 a.m. If that happens, small time investors who purchased the stock on Friday will lose big.

  • Remember last week I told you about actor John Travolta's accuser named in court documents as John Doe No. 2? I told you his name was really John, and he lived with his wife and small children in Atlanta.

    That information came to Sandrarose.com by way of a confidential source whom I will refer to as "Mr. X."

    If you need to know anything about anybody who is somebody in Atlanta, Mr. X is your go-to source. That's why TMZ has his number on speed dial.

    Anyway, the NY Daily News revealed the identity of John Doe No. 2 on Saturday. His name is John Truesdale, he is 40 and he works as a masseur at the upscale Mandarin Oriental spa.

    The 250-pound certified black belt tells the Daily News that 58-year-old Travolta "sexually accosted him in a hotel suite on the 15th floor in January. At that time the swanky hotel was called the Mansion on Peachtree."

    In an exclusive video that was posted to YouTube by Mr. X (the video has since been made private), Truesdale's former co-worker, explains how an anxious Truesdale came running downstairs following his 15-minute encounter with Travolta.

    "I can't do this!" he quoted a flabbergasted Truesdale as saying at the time.

    How many times does Will Smith have to tell you he's not gay?

    Smith, who is married to actress Jada Pinkett-Smith, has repeatedly denied the persistent ghey rumors over the years.

    But his denials doesn't keep the gheys from trying him.

    Smith just about reached the limits of his endurance with the ghey rumor thing when a gutsy Russian reporter tried to kiss him in the mouth on the red carpet at the Russian premiere of Men in Black III.

    Despite media hype and early projections for the initial public offering of Facebook stock, the IPO was a dud.

    The national media predicted hundreds of millions of Facebook users would snap up the stocks in an uncontrolled feeding frenzy, making the IPO even more successful than Google and Apple's initial stock offerings.

    But the forecasted estimates fell short of expectations, and the media was left with egg on their faces.

    Initial stockholders (who bought into the company years ago) unloaded 421 million shares today for earnings of about $9 billion. CEO Mark Zuckerberg was among those dumping his shares today. He walked away with an estimated $1.15 billion -- on paper, at least.

    Despite selling off his shares, Zuckerberg remains Facebook's biggest shareholder with 56% control over his company (503.6 million shares).

    Unemployed NFL player Chad Ochocinco and reality TV personality Evelyn Lozada were spotted on the beach filming their new reality show, titled 'Ocho & Eve,' in Miami. Chad was spotted wearing a t-shirt with OMG AKA WTF in huge letters while pretending to argue with Lozada, ex-wife of former NBA player Antoine Walker.

    I fully expect Lozada to take to her Twitter page to overinflate this "argument" to boost ratings for the show, which has already suffered form a small exodus of advertisers who weren't aware how ghetto she was on Basketball Wives.

    After months of feet dragging, covers up and outright lies by the Sanford police department and the national media, the photographs of George Zimmerman's injuries the night he shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin have finally been released.

    The good quality photos show superficial scratches on Zimmerman's face and on the back of his head. The photos do not prove Zimmerman's claims that he was in a life and death struggle with the unarmed teenager when he shot and killed him.

    Gossip website TMZ.com is reporting that disco legend Donna Summer has died after a long battle with cancer this morning in her Florida home. She was 63.

    Donna Summer, real name LaDonna Gaines, was originally trained as a gospel singer before breaking into the big time as a disco singer.

    The 5-time Grammy winner, whose disco hits helped redefine the music industry in the seventies, peaked on the charts with her singles "Love to Love You Baby" (1975), "Last Dance" (1978), "Hot Stuff" (1978) and "Bad Girls" (1979).

    Mixing soul and funk with electro house music, Donna was dubbed Disco Queen. But her star soon faded when the industry suffered from a disco backlash in the 80s.

    Still, Donna achieved more success in the 1980s with her singles "On the Radio" (!980) "She Works Hard For the Money" (1982), and "This Time I Know It's For Real" (1988). Her most recent album, Crayons, was released in 2008.

    According to British tabloid Mail Online, musician Kanye West is very unhappy with the reception he is receiving in London, England.

    Reality TV personality Kim Kardashian is drawing big crowds -- and all of the attention -- over in London, where she is promoting her jewelry line.

    But Kanye is a narcissist who hates to share the spotlight with other narcissists. The "Theraflu" rapper looked very unhappy as Kim giggled with delight at all the attention she was receiving from the Brits. Kim took pictures with fans as she entered BBC Radio 1 Studios with Kanye early this morning.

    Making matters even worse for Kanye, one of the BBC's security officers dissed Kanye who tried to get by him on his way into the BBC offices.

    Yesterday on social networking website Twitter.com, boxing champ Floyd Mayweather sent out a tweet alerting his millions of followers that close friend, rapper 50 Cent, was hospitalized with a serious illness.

    A confidential source inside Fiddy's camps tells Sandrarose.com that the "Get Rich Or Die Trying" rapper is suffering from a wicked case of appendicitis -- a painful, sometimes deadly, infection of the appendix. 50 Cent tweeted that he was going into surgery yesterday.

    Mayweather, who was in Atlanta earlier this week, followed up with a tweet saying his friend had a stomach virus. But a stomach virus usually doesn't require hospitalization or surgery.

    In 2009, one year after Barack Obama was elected president in a landslide victory, I posted these images of the president and the first lady Michelle Obama together. Body language enthusiasts can clearly see the involuntary signals that Michelle was sending at the time. Her closed body position clearly indicates some discord between the two. But when I pointed the signals out to my readers back then, they scoffed at me.

    According to author Edward Klein, whose new book "The Amatuer" is about to hit store shelves, the Obamas once talked divorce.

    Pastor Marvin Winans, who spoke at Whitney Houston's funeral, was robbed and car jacked in Detroit this afternoon.

    The shameful incident ocurred at a Citgo Gas Station at Linwood and Davison in Detroit. Winans, who was not seriously injured, said he went into the gas station to pay for his gas when he saw 10 young men milling around inside. "When I walked in I said this is not a good situation," Winans told a local ABC affiliate.

    He said 4 of the young men followed him outside to the pump where he was assaulted by the youths who stole his purple Infiniti QX56 SUV with license plate 0DRT73.

    Detroit Police are searching for the suspects. Winans, 54, suffered a cut on his hand and the youths ripped his pants off of him. "I was indecently exposed," said Winans, who described the incident as "quite savage."

    Winans said he didn't think the youths knew who he was, "and if they did, it didn't make much difference."

    "I'm not going to be afraid of us.. of our sons," he said.

    Newark Mayor Cory Booker is an anomaly; at 43, he holds a prestigious job, makes a ton of money, but he is chronically single.

    In 2012, a handsome man who is still single after the age of 40 is almost unheard of.

    Mr. Booker has been the subject of rampant ghey rumors for years now. In a new interview by Obie Brook for EBONY magazine, Mayor Booker adds fuel to the rumors by balking at the mere mention of dating ladies.

    EBONY: Forgive me, I have to ask this question because too many ladies out there would kill me if I didn't: are you hoping to settle down and start a family in the near future?

    CORY BOOKER: [Laughs] What "ladies"? Did my mother put you up to this? [Laughs] I just I think everybody wants to have that settled life and even God wants us to "have life and have it more abundantly." Everybody wants to find their soul mate and I’m no different. That's definitely what I want in the future.

    Booker goes on to say he is looking for a "soul mate" to settle down with -- not necessarily a female.

    EBONY: Last year you mentioned being too busy to date. Have you found
    that soul mate yet or are you still looking?

    CORY BOOKER: Still looking for that soul mate.

    Mr. Obama has consistently said he agreed with gay unions, but not same-sex marriage.

    According to Fox News, callers to the popular urban station expressed disappointment in Obama, with some saying the president lost their votes.

    It isn't all bad news for socialite Pilar Sanders, who was tossed into a Texas jail last month for assaulting her estranged husband, NFL great Deion Sanders.

    According to ABC News, Sanders, 44, has been ordered by a Texas court to pay 38-year-old Pilar $10,500 per month in child support for their three children and $275,000 in legal fees.

    Sanders filed for divorce from Pilar in December after finding love in the arms of songwriter Babyface's ex-wife, Tracey Edmonds.

    But Pilar is a bitter, vindictive woman who decided not to move out of Deion's sprawling $5.7 million Prosper, Texas mansion, despite the fact that Pilar reportedly has her own home in Celina, Texas.

    The guest list will include 300 family and friends, according to the NY Post.

    Former NYPD beat cop, Ekeythia Dunston, 34, was found innocent of attempted murder in the shooting of her longtime girlfriend Erica LeGall.

    The same jury on Monday found the 8-year police veteran guilty of the lesser charge of assault, according to the NY Daily News.

    Unlike Florida resident Marissa Alexander who was sentenced to 20 years in prison for discharging a handgun, Dunston faces 25 years in prison for firing at LeGall and hitting her -- twice.

    Dunston, the niece of former Mets shortstop Shawon Dunston, shot LeGall in the chest and the thigh during a bloody brawl in the couple's Harlem apartment in 2010.

    The FBI may have enough evidence to charge Trayvon Martin's killer with a hate crime. George Zimmerman was arrested in April and charged with 2nd degree murder in the February shooting death of the 17-year-old Miami high school student.

    Zimmerman, 28, told police he shot the unarmed teen in self defense following a brief altercation. According to WFTV, the FBI is actively questioning residents of the Retreat of Twin Lakes community, and they could charge Zimmerman with a hate crime even if he is acquitted of killing Trayvon Martin.

    He could face the death penalty if found guilty of a hate crime.
