Tyga and Blac Chyna

Celebrity couples spotted arriving at the Staples Center for last night's LA Clippers vs Miami Heat game included singer Christina Millian and her producer/boyfriend Jas Prince; and rapper Tyga with his baby mama, former stripper Blac Chyna.

The rumors are so salacious and scandalous that this blogger was warned not to repeat them under threat of violence.

Minnetonka high school Principal David Adney told The Star Tribune: "This new trend doesn't seem right, it's troubling. Cover your butts up -- I'm just going to say it straight up. We're seeing too much."

Channing Tatum PEOPLE Magazine Sexiest Man Alive

From People mag online:

He may have bared (almost) all of that incredibly chiseled body in this year's Magic Mike but 2012's Sexiest Man Alive Channing Tatum was still modest when he heard the news.

"My first thought was, 'Y'all are messing with me,'" says Tatum, who married actress Jenna Dewan-Tatum in 2009. "I told Jenna after we'd been in the bathtub washing our dogs because they'd gotten skunked."

Says the actor: "She was like, 'What?'"

"Yeah, she calls me [the Sexiest Man Alive] now," he adds. And who can blame her?

    Elmo Accuser Recants

    Elmo's voice can breath a sigh of relief now that his accuser has recanted his allegations of underage sex.

    The law firm that represents Kevin Clash's unidentified accuser released a statement Tuesday afternoon that read:

    "He wants it to be known that his sexual relationship with Mr. Clash was an adult consensual relationship. He will have no further comment on the matter.”

    Mr. Clash, who is on leave from Sesame Street, said through a spokeswoman: "I am relieved that this painful allegation has been put to rest. I will not discuss it further."

    The sudden reversal led to speculation that the now 23-year-old accuser was paid handsomely for his silence by Clash or Sesame Street.

    Kenya Moore

    Former Miss USA and The Real Housewives of Atlanta's newest cast member Kenya Moore joined the Tom Joyner Morning Show today setting the record straight on rumors that she's creeping with fellow housewife Phaedra Parks' husband. Moore, 41, also expressed concern about the way the show's sloppy editing is affecting her image. She left out the fact that she was flown in to add drama to the show since Marlo clashed with the show's producers and was not asked to return to this season's lineup.

    TOM JOYNER: Do you like your image on Real Housewives of Atlanta?

    KENYA MOORE: I think, you know, it's taken some time for me to adjust on the editing process. I think, you know, people that know me and have known me for the last 20 years in the business I've definitely been, you know, a classy woman. I've been articulate. I'm a lot of things. And the show seems to be moving my, you know, editing process, or my image in a certain direction.

    On being a multi-million dollar enterprise:

    Barack Obama David Patraeus

    Dianne Gallagher WCNC

    The Obama administration was desperate to keep the David Patraeus sex scandal from exploding on the eve of the presidential election.

    There is evidence that the FBI -- who answers to Obama -- may have suppressed allegations that the disgraced former CIA chief was cheating on his wife at least a week before the elections.

    On Monday night, about a dozen FBI agents descended upon the home of Patraeus' alleged mistress searching for evidence.

    "The FBI is here... I think there might be more than sex involved now..." tweeted WCNC reporter Dianne Gallagher, who was outside Paula Broadwell's Dilworth home.

    David Patraeus Paula Broadwell

    It's a story as old as time itself: powerful, wealthy man meets woman, man romances woman -- despite being married to another woman.

    Four star Gen. David Patraeus, 60, tendered his resignation as head of the CIA the day after President Barack Obama won re-election. The general's high flying career was grounded by accusations that he cheated on his wife of 38 years, Holly, with his biographer, Paula Broadwell (pictured right).

    According to the NY Post, one of Patraeus's other mistresses blew the whistle on his cheating ways.

    This post was updated from an earlier version that contains the same information as present.

    R&B crooner Usher Raymond recently put the palatial mansion that he once shared with ex-wife Tameka Raymond on the market -- and he's giving her 60 days to vacate the premises.

    Public records show the 33-year-old singer purchased the 12,445 square foot, 6 bedroom, 8 bath mansion in Roswell in 2007 (the year he married Tameka) for $3,040,000. The value of the home has dropped over a million dollars in recent years. But Usher is listing the home at $3.2 million.

    Usher filed for divorce from Tameka in 2009 after living apart for over a year. He allowed Tameka to live in the mansion with their sons, 4 and 3, and her sons from previous relationships for a few years. But the terms of their divorce allows Usher to sell the mansion at will.

    Friends say Usher was tired of sinking thousands of dollars a month into the mansion for its daily upkeep. He wants Tameka out so he can unload the pricey property and cut his losses.
