Jay Z and Beyonce

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.

Angus T Jones

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.

Beyonce and Blue Ivy

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.

Halle Berry seeks restraining order on Gabriel Aubry

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.
