Straightfromthea.com reports that Judge Bensonetta Tipton-Lane, who presided over the contentious Raymond vs Raymond child custody case, has stepped down.

In a controversial ruling in September, Judge Tipton-Lane awarded Usher Raymond full custody of his two boys, ages 4 and 5. Prior to the judge's ruling, Raymond shared custody of the boys with his ex-wife, Tameka Foster-Raymond.

    Amare Stoudemire married Alexis Welch

    According to the NY Daily News, NY Knicks star Amar'e Stoudemire finally married his long-suffering baby mama, Alexis Welch.

    The couple did it the right way; by waiting until he was done sowing his wild oats. Alexis should be commended for holding things down at home while her seed donor ran the streets. She was wise enough to see that he was a good man despite all of his affairs (most notably with singer Ciara). But even though he stepped out on her he took care of the bills, which is what any real man should do.

    Brandon Woodard

    Police say someone sent a text message to Brandon Lincoln Woodard, 31, luring him out of the safety of his swanky midtown hotel -- and into the path of a killer.

    Surveillance video shows the killer emerging from the passenger side of a silver Lincoln MKZ sedan parked on West 58th Street. But he was about 20 minutes early.

    Woodard, of Los Angeles, checked out of the swanky 6 Columbus Hotel in midtown and walked east -- right past the man who was waiting to kill him. Police theorize that the assassin allowed Woodard to pass because foot traffic was heavy at the time.

    Nick Cannon and Mariah

    If you were wondering why Beyonce Carter didn't attend the NY Knicks vs Brooklyn Nets rematch with her hubby Jay Z Tuesday night, it's because she was across town supporting her little sister Solange Knowles' show at the Bowery Ballroom. Bey's bestie, Kelly Rowland, also attended the show. Am I the only one who notices the crazed look in Beyonce's eyes?
