Believe it or not, former stripper Blac Chyna is something of a celebrity in other parts of the world. Photos of the mother of 1 sell for a premium in foreign countries. Chyna, age unknown, has a son, King, with rapper Tyga. She posted these photos on her personal blog yesterday. Chyna looks quite bored in her palatial, but sparsely furnished mansion in the Hollywood Hills that Tyga purchased for her and the baby while he's out chasing skirts.

Halle Berry's ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry successfully obtained a restraining order against Berry's current boyfriend, Olivier Martinez, after the Thanksgiving brawl that left Aubry with wicked facial injuries. Both men were treated for various injuries at a hospital. Aubry's petition for the restraining order contained images of Aubry's black eyes, lacerations and abrasions that Aubry claims he suffered at the hands of Martinez who made a citizen's arrest on the former underwear model. Aubry says he was attacked by Martinez when he arrived at Berry's Los Angeles home to drop off his daughter Nahla on November 22, 2012.

Rap mogul Jay Z, 42, patiently explained the difference between a free throw (in basketball) and a free kick (in soccer) to his clueless wife Beyonce. The singer looked so lost as she sat at court side with Michael Strahan, Nicole Murphy, and other celebrities for the much-anticipated match up between the thuggish NY Knicks and Jay Z's Brooklyn Nets at the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Monday. Jay Z's Nets won the showdown by a score of 96-89. The Jigga owns a miniscule percentage of the former NJ Nets, which gives him bragging rights over other NY area rappers.
A Florida man choked to death after swallowing dozens of live roaches during a roach eating contest.
The Atlanta Journal Constitution obtained a copy of Edward Archbold's autopsy report which showed the 32-year-old man died as a result of "asphyxia due to choking and aspiration of gastric contents.
The human stomach is designed to reject -- or regurgitate -- caustic substances that may be harmful to our health.
In Archbold's case, he inhaled the regurgitated roach body parts into his lungs.
Rapper/actor Tip "T.I." Harris is making the rounds to promote his blockbuster album, Trouble Man: Heavy Is the Head, which is set to drop next month.
In an interview with Billboard Magazine, T.I. revealed how actor Will Smith attempted to use his significant pull with Barack Obama to have T.I. released from prison. He also received support from rappers Eminem and Nelly while he was doing time on weapons charges.
Two and a Half Men star Angus T. Jones had an epiphany one day. Not content to star alongside Ashton Kutcher on the long-running hit show Two and a Half Men, Jones set off in pursuit of the real meaning of life -- which he figured he would find inside a black church. His search led him to the Forerunner Christian Church, where parishioners took him in and immediately hit record on a video camera.
What follows is a rambling 14-minute testimonial by the 19-year-old actor who declares his love for black people and encourages his fans to stop watching the show.
Singer Alicia Keys performed a track from her new CD Girl On Fire live at Good Morning America in New York City Monday. The album, in stores now, is the follow-up to her fourth studio album, The Element of Freedom, which sold 417K copies in the first week.

It appears that singer Beyonce continues to suffer from postpartum depression -- even though evidence shows she did not give birth to her daughter, Blue Ivy.
In a hand-scrawled letter posted on her personal website, Beyonce wrote: "I am just so ugly, dull, poor... ridiculous. Take me or leave me."
The child-like letter -- written in magic marker using block letters -- displays Beyonce's increasingly despondent state of mind since Blue Ivy was born in January. The letter also shows a starkly different handwriting from previous open letters that were reportedly penned by the singer.
Actress Halle Berry went back to court to apply for a temporary restraining order against her baby daddy Gabriel Aubry following the underwear model's fisticuffs with her fiance, Olivier Martin.
The fist fight occurred on Thanksgiving day when Aubry arrived at Berry's home to drop off Nahla. The two men reportedly exchanged words in French before Aubry battled in the driveway. It isn't clear if little Nahla witnessed the knock-down, drag-out fight between the two men.
If the restraining order is granted, Aubry, 36, could lose joint custody of their daughter, Nahla, 4. The TRO could also pave the way for Berry, 46, to move with Nahla to France, where treatment for autistic children is more advanced than in the USA.
Pop singer Rihanna defended her lover Chris Brown after his wild Twitter melee with a female comic ended when he deleted his Twitter page over the weekend.
Not one to sit idly by and mind her own business, Rihanna jumped feet first into the scrum by digging up reams of tweets written by Jenny Johnson -- the woman who Brown viciously attacked on Twitter.
Troubled singer Chris Brown, 23, deleted his Twitter page (again) after a profanity-laced tweet exchange with a female comedy writer.
It all started when the comic, Jenny Johnson, responded to a days old tweet posted by Brown that read: "I look old as f**k! I'm only 23." Johnson replied with: "I know! Being a worthless piece of s**t can really age a person."
Proving that he has not matured one bit, Brown tweeted, "take them teeth out when u Sucking my dick HOE." He followed that little gem with a barrage of insults and obscene tweets that demonstrated his obvious fecal obsession -- a symptom of a psychotic disorder.
13-year-old Tyasia Jackson will be tried as an adult in the stabbing death of her 2-year-old half sister. The teen made her first court appearance on Tuesday.
Sasha Ray was found in the back yard of her family's condo by her parents who left her and her siblings in Tyasia's care on Monday.

According to a report in London's Daily Mail, Tyasia was caught with a boy inside the house while her parents were running errands.

R&B singer Kelly Rowland is in high demand for album features and music video appearances since Beyonce fell off. That's probably why Beyonce spends her days posting random photos of herself online. This video is the first single off Big Boi's Vicious Lies & Dangerous Rumors album. By the way, rumor has it that Big Boi and his Outkast partner Andre 3000 have fallen out.
Rihanna's disastrous #777 Tour is over and the 24-year-old singer is once again alone with her thoughts
and her hard liquor. The Bajan singer tweeted this photo of herself on her "big ole jet" earlier today. In another tweet she wrote: #777 Tour is a wrap! Thanks to everyone who was a part of this. It was an incredible experience for my fans and I!
It's interesting to note that Rihanna, at least subconsciously, admits that it wasn't an incredible experience for the journos and bloggers.
R&B singer Mary J. Blige struggled to stay awake during the Los Angeles Lakers vs Brooklyn Nets game in the Staples Center in LA Tuesday. The 41-year-old "My Life" singer was spotted yawning and nodding off while sitting at court side. The Lakers defeated the Brooklyn Nets by the final score of 95-90 in their first game under a new head coach. Mike D'Antoni was hired to replace departing coach Mike Brown who was unceremoniously fired after the Lakers started the 2012-13 season with a dismal 1-4 record.

Rihanna Air survivors are still voicing their displeasure at the third world conditions they were subjected to on board the so-called 777 plane. About 250 journalists, bloggers and fans were invited to join singer Rihanna on her 7-day, 7-country, 7-concert world tour to promote her new album.
But conditions on board the air bus quickly descended into chaos and anarchy when Rihanna's guests discovered that the only time they would ever see the singer was onstage nightly.
Also of immediate concern to the media was their general discomfort on board the plane. While Rihanna and her friends relaxed in the lap of luxury in 1st class -- her media guests were herded together like cattle back in coach.

Despite coughing up $125,000 in hush money to the man who accused him of underage sex, Kevin Clash could not overcome the troubling gay sexual innuendoes surrounding Elmo.

R&B Diva Monica Brown tweeted this photo of herself posing with rapper Future, who is rumored to be dating singer Ciara. We doubt Ciara and Future are dating because Future already has a girlfriend. Not that a prior commitment has ever stopped rappers from availing themselves of free nookie.

Studio singer K. Michelle is relieved that she can drop the title "mixtape singer" from her résumé. The 26-year-old mother of 1 announced her new record deal with Warner Brothers on her Twitter page Monday.
It isn't clear if K. Michelle is bedding the recording executive who signed her. As you may recall, the last executive who signed K. Michelle to a record deal (MempHitz) lived up to his name by slapping the taste out of her mouth whenever she got loud or stepped out of line. Neither the record deal nor their relationship ended very well.
