As most of you know (unless you've been living under a rock) Beyonce's surrogate mother gave birth to the singer's first baby at an upper East side hospital in NY over the weekend.

The baby, named Blue Ivy (after Jay Z's album Blueprint and Beyonce's album, '4'), was born by c-section on Saturday afternoon at Lenox Hill hospital. A hospital source dismissed rumors that Beyonce and Jay rented an entire hospital floor for $1.3 million.

"We don't have entire floors sitting empty at Lenox Hill," scoffed the source. Our source told us Beyonce and Jay Z were charged the same amount for services as any other patient. If anything, they spent that amount just on security," she said.

Our source confirmed that the narcissistic couple actually shared the maternity ward with other expectant mothers.

According to the NY Daily News, Beyonce and her entourage occupied a vast area of the maternity wing, which caused problems for visitors attempting to see their newborns in the Neonatal ICU unit on the same floor.

Neil Coulon, 38, of Brooklyn (pictured at right) said the stress of his wife delivering two premature girls was tripled by Beyoncé’s bodyguards treating Lenox Hill Hospital like an exclusive nightclub.

Coulon griped that he’s been repeatedly barred from the sixth-floor neonatal intensive care unit, once for 20 minutes, by the superstar couple’s private security.

He said bodyguards wearing headsets even cleared the sixth floor waiting room, booting his relatives out.

“Three times they stopped me from entering or exiting the NICU (Neo-natal Intensive Care Unit) and it happened once on Friday — just because they wanted to use the hallway,” said Coulon, a contractor from Bedford-Stuyvesant.

“They should have been more strategic about it,” he said. “These are children with problems in intensive care and you're just going to take over the hospital like you own it? All I want is an apology. Source

Photo by Norman Y. Lono for NY Daily News was all abuzz with news of Beyonce and Jay Z's daughter Blue Ivy's arrival on Saturday. Many of my followers tweeted the link to this video showing E! Television footage of Beyonce (at around 10 months gestation) hopping into her custom SUV with very little effort -- as if she had already dropped her load the day before!

After viewing the video myself, I agree with my followers: she does not look pregnant, nor does she move like a pregnant woman who is about to deliver her precious cargo in less than 48 hours.

Beyonce and Jay Z have managed to pull the wool over the gullible national media's eyes, but my readers were never fooled!

Watch the amazine footage after the break!

We have more information for you on the birth of Beyonce's first child from, and our Lenox Hill hospital source.

According to our source, Beyonce and her surrogate were admitted to the upper East side hospital on the same maternity floor. Other women in labor were also admitted to the floor despite rumors that Beyonce and Jay Z rented the entire floor for an absurd $1.3 million.

Our source said, "Lenox Hill does not turn away expectant mothers to cater to the needs of celebrities."

The NY Daily News confirmed that Beyonce was admitted to the hospital under the name Ingrid Jackson. But we're told the surrogate mother was also admitted to Lenox Hill under an assumed alias.

According to, hospital brass held a meeting leading up to the delivery to discuss a security plan for the birth. The meeting between execs and security was held Friday afternoon and strict security was in place almost immediately, preparing for the Saturday delivery.

Such an elaborate security plan was required to conceal the fact that Beyonce was not the one giving birth. Security cameras were taped over, or turned off -- which is a violation of hospital policies.

Our source said the baby girl was delivered via c-section while the mother was given an epidural to block the pain. The birth mother was allowed to briefly hold the baby and then the baby was handed off to Beyonce who waited in an adjoining room.

Beyonce and her fake baby bump were spotted leaving that office building in NYC that she seems to visits daily. Does she have a 9-5 job in that building? There are still no photos of Bey entering or leaving a doctor's office. If she can visit a random office building every other day then surely she can visit a doctor's office? Beyonce is such a fraud. She does not look pregnant anywhere on her body.


By comparison, this is what a pregnant woman looks like. Jessica Simpson, who is carrying a real 6-month old fetus, looks every bit pregnant. She is due to give birth in the Spring. Meanwhile, Beyonce, who is in her 10th month of pregnancy, plans to "deliver" her "baby" onstage at the 2012 Grammy Awards.

R&B singer Fantasia Barrino recently gave birth to a baby boy. According to a recent interview, Fantasia hopes that her still-married baby daddy, Antwaun Cook, will step up and marry her, and help out with the baby financially.

Wendy, who speaks to Fantasia from her heart through the TV since Fantasia is still nursing her baby at home, says "You were dead wrong, Fantasia."

Wendy adds: "Fanstasia, he's not gonna marry you because it's cheaper not to divorce his own wife, unless you go multi-platinum..."

Prize fighter Floyd "Money" Mayweather won't need any of his flashy jewels or fancy cars where he's going. Today is the day the troubled boxer must turn himself in to authorities to begin serving a 90-day sentence for roughing up his children's mother in front of them in September 2010.

Mayweather will turn 35 in prison on Feb. 24.

It's cold on the cell block this time of the year -- even in Las Vegas. And Mayweather won't have his curvy model fiancee, Shantel Jackson, to keep him warm for the next 3 months.

The boxing champ was sentenced to serve 6 months on Dec. 21, but a Las Vegas judge suspended 3 months of his sentence and allowed him to remain out over the holidays. The judge also credited Floyd 3 days for time served.

Mayweather has until today (Jan. 6) to turn himself in at the prison — where Bubba awaits.

Update: According to, a judge ruled today that Floyd Mayweather Jr. won't have to turn himself in to a Las Vegas jail until June 1, 2012 ... so he can fight in Las Vegas on May 5th.

TMZ adds: "His attorney's justification ... Floyd's a pro who brings in hundreds of millions in profits for the city of Las Vegas -- and hey, thing's get rescheduled all the time ... no bigs."


Washed up rapper Jim Jones, 35, tells his side of the marriage proposal story in this sneak peek of next week's Love & Hip Hop. Some viewers of last week's episode thought Jones' proposal to his nagging girlfriend, Chrissy Lampkin, 40, wasn't meaningful enough. But Jones, who pretends to be a hard thug in the streets, shows his soft side when describing his and Chrissy's 7-year relationship. "That's like, uh, the princess kissing the frog. I got my own fairy tale going on," he says.

An online "video diary" created by the most hated woman in the world was leaked online by a hacker, according to Casey Anthony's defense attorneys.

Anthony's attorneys confirmed that the pale woman with the short, cropped blond 'do in the video is indeed Anthony. But an angry J. Chesney Mason told the Orlando Sentinel that the video's release was "unauthorized" and "inappropriate" and an investigation is under way to find out how it was leaked.

Casey, who is currently holed up somewhere in Orlando where she is serving probation on bad check charges, indicated how lonely she is in her current location. She expressed her joy at having her video camera and an adopted dog to keep her company.

The 24-year-old doesn't mention her dead daughter, Caylee Anthony, in the creepy 4-minute video, dated Oct. 13, 2011. But she mentions the dog repeatedly.

“It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to call something mine.” says Anthony, who was released from a Florida prison on July 17 after she was found not guilty of murdering her daughter.

She also hinted that more video diaries may be coming: “Now I, in some ways, have someone to talk to even when I am by myself so I am not bothering the poor dog, who I have adopted and I love."

Kanye West, the world's most grandiose rapper, went on a bizarre Twitter rant yesterday, detailing his excessively grand ideas and plans for the world.

In the midst of his narcissistic ramblings, West named himself as Steve Jobs' successor. He announced a new Apple-type corporation, which he named DONDA -- after his late mother. The new corporation, he says, will consist of 22 divisions "with a goal to make products and experiences that people want and can afford..."

West is "assembling a team of architects, graphic designers, directors musicians, producers, AnRs, writers, publicist, social media experts, app guys, managers, car designers, clothing designers, DJs, video game designers, publishers, tech guys, lawyers, bankers, nutritionist, doctors, scientist, teachers…” to take him one step closer to realizing his goal of becoming the next Steve Jobs.

"I sit everyday and ask what can I do to make a difference," writes West, who adds that he hasn't "bought a new car or piece of jewelry in about 2 years..."

West doesn't want to just design the new iPad, he wants to redesign our way of thinking too -- beginning with the schoolchildren. "School systems were designed to turn people into factory workers," he tweeted. "Schools should be designed to prep human beings for real life."

Who else thought that schools were already designed to prep human beings for life?

West says he's uniquely qualified to redesign our way of life because he has won Grammies, which gives him the "prestige" to reach out and connect people.

Like most grandiose personalities, West's ideas are a confused, colossal mishmash of pomposity and pretentiousness conceived by West to bring even more attention to himself.

"I care about people who have never heard of me... There are over 7 billion people on the planet now," he tweeted. And West is determined to get their attention one tweet at a time.

An American concert promoter and his son learned the hard way that rappers are not the most scrupulous businessmen in the world.

According to, AllGood Entertainment CEO Patrick Allocco and his son are currently being held at gunpoint in an Angola hotel until rapper Nas and another rapper returns the $315K each that they were paid to perform a New Year's Day concert.

Allocco's people tell TMZ that Nas and opening act Jemiah Jai were paid $315k to perform 2 shows (Nas' cash was wired to him in America) -- but Nas failed to make his flight in the U.S., and apparently he didn't reschedule the concert.

Naturally, the Angolan money man who ante'd up the cash for Nas' concert fee assumed he was being screwed. So he sent his goons to fetch the promoter and his son and bring them to him -- at gunpoint.

The promoter and his son were handed over to Angolan police and interrogated for 7 hours until the U.S. embassy stepped in to secure their release.

But they're not quite free to go.

According to TMZ, the men are being held (likely at gunpoint) "in residence" at a local hotel while the two sides try to resolve the money situation.

Alloco's people released this depressing message to Nas and his people:

"The hope is that Nas and Jemiah Jai will return all of the monies that were wired to them immediately so that our ransom may be paid and our safe return to the United States may be facilitated."

Sadly, they'll be waiting a long time if they expect Nas to return any of that money. We are taking about rappers here.

Rihanna, 23, is still on holiday in her native Barbados. She was spotted yesterday splashing in the surf with her family and friends at the beach. Rihanna and her ex-boyfriend, Chris Brown, raised eyebrows yesterday when they expressed their undying love for each other on the social networking website Rihanna is typical of an abused woman who forms an unhealthy attachment to her abuser, even after he has rearranged her face, because she lacks the self esteem to move on.

Rumors continue to run rampant as Beyonce fans, and even members of the once-respected national media, wonder if Beyonce is in labor and about to give birth.

One gossip blog, which has zero credibility, claims Beyonce is giving birth any minute now at Manhattan's St. Luke's-Roosevelt hospital. In fact, if you rely on the shaky word of that unreliable gossip blog, Beyonce has been in labor at St. Luke's-Roosevelt for 4 days now.

I was a young nurse in 1989 when I took a traveling assignment to NY to work at New York Cornell Medical Center for 6 months. At the end of my assignment -- as I packed my bags to leave the harsh, inhospitable environment of New York forever -- I received a phone call from my travel agency asking if I would be willing to cross the picket line at St. Luke's-Roosevelt hospital where the nurses had gone on strike.

Beyonce's sister, Solange Knowles (center), her son Daniel Julez, 7, holding hands with his dad, J. Smith, and Tina Knowles were spotted leaving a vintage clothing store in New York City yesterday. Solange covered her face with a shopping bag to hide the fact that she wasn't wearing makeup. Why tip the paps off to your location if you're not camera ready?

It's good to see Solo getting along so well with her baby daddy. Then again, her sister is probably supporting him financially. The Internet was all abuzz with rumors yesterday that Beyonce was giving birth to a baby in a NY hospital. Considering the source of that information, I don't know why anyone would believe that ridiculous story. Doesn't a woman have to be pregnant in order to give birth?

Beyonce's husband, aging rap mogul Jay Z, 42, cheered on Kim Kardashian's ex, Kris Humphries and the NJ Nets at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ yesterday. Jigga showed support for his former tour partner, Kanye West, by rocking a pair of his unreleased Nike Air Yeezy 2 Sneakers in black and pink colorway. According to, the basketball shoes are expected to be released in March, 2012 and priced at $235.

You might recognize the man sitting next to Jay Z as his former trap partner, Emory Jones, who was sentenced to 16 years hard time in federal prison after he was busted for drug trafficking in Maryland.

Jay Z wrote the judge and coerced him into shaving 37 months off of Emory's sentence by promising Jones a steady job paying $50K annually last year.

Troubled singer Rihanna premiered her music video for her 2nd single "U Da One" off her album, Talk That Talk. TTT has managed to sell only 320K units after 4 weeks on the charts, despite the fact that Rihanna has over 10 million followers on the social networking website

The Melina-directed video is more of the same from Rihanna, slutty imagery juxtaposed with elementary lyrics backed by a simplistic track, and Rihanna's dependency on pot (see screen grab above).

Floyd Mayweather loves to brag about his unlimited supply of cash and his million-dollar collection of flashy jewelry and timepieces. But the boxing champ won't be able to take any of that with him where he's going.

Yesterday a judge sentenced Mayweather to 90 days in jail for beating down his baby mama in front of their kids in September 2010. Mayweather, who thought he was untouchable until yesterday, will be given credit for 3 days served, but he will have to do 87 days of hard time behind bars.

When the judge announced Mayweather's sentence, his knees buckled and his eyes blinked rapidly as if he was fighting back tears. He turned and looked at his high-priced attorneys who can't save him. Celebrity gossip blog reports that Mayweather was sentenced to 6 months in jail, but 3 months of that sentence was suspended.

The judge was especially perturbed that the cowardly Mayweather threatened to beat his children who begged him to leave their mother alone.

The judge also ordered Mayweather to pay a $2,500 fine, complete 100 hours of community service and enroll in a 12-month domestic violence program.

Floyd has until January 6 to turn himself in to prison -- where Bubba awaits.

Take a peek at some of Mayweather's ostentatious bejeweled watch collection after the break.

Just as we suspected: those pics of a bloated, baby whale Beyonce shopping at Bergdorf Goodman were not her. As you can see from the pics below of Bey shopping at Curve in NYC, her nose is not spread across her face, and she hasn't picked up a pound anywhere other than her midsection.

In her shameless, never-ending campaign to stay relevant, Beyonce covers this month's issue of Jones Magazine. Her baby bump is not visible in this cover shot, meaning she removed her prosthetic -- or she knew she was going to be pregnant when these pics were taken. It's interesting that she's talking about motherhood when she isn't even pregnant in these pics!

“I believe that parents prepare their kids for the moment that they’re on their own: at this point, I am taking everything my dad and my mother have taught me, and I’m able to do things my way,” she says.

The cover was shot on the terrace of the Maurice in Paris, France by photographer Greg Gex.


The editor-in-chief of Jackie magazine, which referred to troubled singer Rihanna as a "Niggabitch", has stepped down.

Eva Hoeke cited the relentless attacks from Rihanna's Stans on social media as the reason for her departure. She explained that she used the term "Niggabitch" to describe the ultra slutty personal style that was influenced by Rihanna herself. Hoeke points out that the term was imported from America where we in the black community routinely use "nigga" and "bitch" as terms of endearment.

But since when does a journalist (or blogger) let Stans influence what they write? The article obviously was not a personal attack on Rihanna. Oh, I forgot, Freedom of Speech is only upheld as a constitutional right here in America.

If Rihanna wants respect maybe she should start by respecting herself?

Eva writes:

Because of the enormous pressure from social media, I can promise improvement in terms of language used in future issues of Jackie.

Previously, I offered rectification. As I now come to the conclusion that rectification is not the right solution, I am departing.

"The term 'nigga bitch" has come over from America and we have only this to describe this particular style of clothes that we can try to interpret.

"After eight years, with my heart and soul, I have worked for Jackie. I realize that these errors - although no malicious intent - is a reason to leave."

An anonymous reader sent in these pics of Beyonce shopping for baby girl clothes at Bergdorf Goodman yesterday. The images appear to be screen captures from a video monitor. The reader was shocked to see how much weight Beyonce had gained in just a matter of days. But we're not surprised because Beyonce will go to any lengths to fool the public into believing she's pregnant. It is already a foregone conclusion that Beyonce is not pregnant -- but her surrogate is. If and when Beyonce "delivers" her "baby", it won't be in a legally sanctioned hospital or clinic. And the "doctor" who delivers the "baby" will be on Jay Z and Bey's payroll.


Every year the blogs wait anxiously for the Kardashians to release their annual Kristmas Kard so they can over analyze it to death. And this year the Kardashians didn't disappoint. But do they even know what Christmas means? The photographer is Nick Saglimbeni, and the Photoshop graphic artist is unknown.

Kim Kardashian posted the Kristmas Kard on her blog this morning. She will probably be happy to know that she was recognized for yet another honor. She can never get enough attention.

The backlash against Kim Kardashian following her 72-day-marriage has earned the reality TV star a formal title –'Most Ill-Mannered Person of 2011.'

Kim was awarded the rudeness crown by the National League of Junior Cotillions (NLJC) for 'making a private matter public and disrespecting the institution of marriage'. Source

It's still a mystery to me why anyone would spend their rent money on a ticket to watch a goat sing.

While performing her hit single "What's My Name," in Lisbon over the weekend, 23-year-old Rihanna forgot the lyrics to her own song, and slurred some of her words. At about the 1:32 mark, Rihanna gestured to someone in the audience indicating that she was about to hurl.

Moments later Rihanna disappeared into the darkness off the side of the stage. Rumors began to swirl almost immediately on Twitter that the singer was stumbling drunk and vomiting during her concert. Later that night, Rihanna took to her Twitter page and admitted that she did indeed throw up the contents of her stomach offstage, which consisted of a half eaten hot dog and about a quart of alcohol.

We broke the story months ago that Rihanna's record label was concerned about Rihanna's drinking and rumored substance abuse problems. Sources say Rihanna has been on and off the wagon in the past month as she deals with her personal issues, including chasing after a man who is already in a long term relationship.

Socialite Kim Kardashian was spotted boarding a private jet with her family bound for Las Vegas, where she attended the grand opening of her Kardashian Khaos boutique at the Mirage Resort Hotel and Casino yesterday. Talk show maven Barbara Walters conducted an interview with Kim, her mother, Kris Jenner, and her sisters, Khloe and Kourtney back in September. Walters basically told them they had no talent and they won't be around next year. It was a reality check that the family wasn't expecting.

Beer hall singer Beyonce, 30, was spotted shopping with her mother, Tina Knowles, at the Agent Provocateur store in West Hollywood yesterday. Beyonce is on the west coast with her husband Jay Z who is currently performing with Kanye West on the Watch The Throne tour. This means that Bey, who is due to deliver something this month, is still flying on planes in her third trimester.

Any real mother knows that flying at high altitudes in her 3rd trimester puts the fetus at risk, not to mention it can be life threatening for mother and baby. ran a Blind Item today about a surrogate mother who is living with her toddler in a Lower West Side apartment in Manhattan. The woman is reportedly 8 months pregnant, and looks bigger than Beyonce, who is supposed to be 9 months pregnant. Her rent is being paid for by an unidentified couple. The woman is described as "in her late twenties, and has thick, dark brown hair and medium-colored skin." And there is reportedly a "a full-time staff person and there is always a doctor or nurse on call."


Talk show maven Barbara Walters was a guest on Late Night With Dave Letterman on Tuesday. Letterman grilled Walters about including the Kardashians on her 'Most Fascinating List', even offering to remove them from the list himself.

Walters saw the opportunity to brand the most hated reality TV family as liars:

"They were the first ones we interviewed and we did them in September," Walters explained. "We said, anything going to happen? 'No no no, you can do it now because nothing's going to happen.' Then Kim gets married. Then Kourtney gets pregnant. Then Khloe's moving to Dallas. You cannot trust the Kardashians."

As the Huffington Post explained; Khloe Kardashian can't be blamed for moving to Dallas with her husband, Lamar Odom, who was traded to the Mavericks by the LA Lakers on Saturday.

Photo: Splash News Online was in a frenzy last night when news broke of a 3-team deal sending New Orleans Hornets star Chris Paul to the Lakers in return for Pao Gasol and Khloe Kardashian's husband, Lamar Odom.

Before the deal had even been confirmed, Laker haters set their sights on Khloe Kardashian's Twitter account, which was uncharacteristically silent --until word came down that the deal was off.

That's when Khloe took to to proclaim her love for her man -- and to prove that she is nothing like her narcissistic sister, Kim Kardashian. It was amusing to see Khloe subtweeting her own sister, who selfishly refused to follow her husband to Minnesota where he was training in the off season.

Khloe tweeted that she would follow Lamar anywhere, even to New Orleans, which is still rebuilding in the wake of that hurricane.

Pseudo-pregnant singer Beyonce, 30, caressed her baby bump as she exited Sakura Nails in NYC last night with her fiercely loyal bodyguard, Julius, and her stone-faced mom, Tina Knowles (not pictured). Beyonce and her tiny entourage made their way to her waiting custom coach on a rainy evening in NYC's East Village. Beyonce got her nails polished in a bright blue color that matched her Christian Louboutin heels.

Maybe I'm just being picky, but does anyone else notice that Beyonce's bump looks a lot bigger than it did last week on Katie Couric's TV special?

Did anyone watch 'Kim & Kourtney Take NY' last night? The episode took up where last week's episode left off -- after Kim's new husband, Kris Humphries, packed his bags and moving back to his home in Minnesota where he could live in peace.

It seems that the show's producers saw no problem with a grown man sharing a hotel suite with his wife, another couple and their screaming kid. So when Kris left, the producers urged Kim to follow her man to Minnesota and bring him back. Because, after all, didn't she marry him for the show?

When Kim arrived in Minnesota, Kris said, "I've missed you: I haven't missed living with everyone -- crying babies, weirdo yoga teachers. I've been able to focus here ... I'm chilling."

When Kim insisted that Kris return to NY with her, the NJ Nets player explained that in the off-season he still had to train to keep in shape. And his trainer is there in Minnesota.

We watched the manipulative Kardashian use her feminine wiles to goad Kris into returning to NY to live in a cramped suite with his wife, his sister-in-law, Kourtney Kardashian, her baby daddy, Scott Disick, and their kid.

There's a reason the show is called 'Kim & Kourtney Take NY' rather than 'Kim, Kourtney & Khloe Take NY'. It's simple: Khloe has way too much respect for her husband, Lamar Odom, to ask him to leave the city where he trains in the off-season, to live in a hopeless situation just for television ratings.

It was one of those astonishing moments when a celebrity is caught on national television like a deer in the proverbial headlights. It occurred when ABC anchor Katie Couric, who was interviewing the cagey singer Beyonce, reached over, and without warning rubbed the baby bump that has been at the center of controversy for months.

Beyonce appeared startled as she reached down reflexively when Katie copped a feel. "I'm sorry, am I allowed to do that?" Katie asked as she snatched her hand back.

When a woman caresses another woman's baby bump, the moment usually passes quickly between the two women.

But Katie's hand returned to groping Beyonce's baby bump a second time -- as if Katie wasn't confident that what she felt the first time was actually a human baby.

It was clear that Katie was performing a tactile examination of Beyonce's baby bump, which was first introduced to the world in September at the MTV VMAs. Prior to that, no one knew the 30-year-old was pregnant.

Judging from Couric's reaction afterwards, it was clear that she still had her doubts that Beyonce's baby bump was real. But Couric never expressed those doubts on the air. We wish we could have been a fly on the wall when Katie told her friends what she really thought about the baby bump!
