Troubled singer Chris Brown and his long-suffering girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, spent the day on the beach with friends in Miami yesterday. Brown took special delight in frightening the seagulls that flock to the beach in search of food. As beach goers looked on in disgust, Brown chased the birds, flapping his arms and screaming as the birds took flight to escape his childish antics.
Speaking of sick birds, Brown's rumored other girlfriend -- singer Rihanna, who is in London today -- took to her Twitter page today to threaten a blogger.
Even though she was quoting a rap lyric in her tweet, your auntie isn't taking any chances. I have beefed up my security and I'm headed to the gun range for more practice after I hit the gym.

Last night around midnight, just as I was turning in for the evening, I received a text message from a very well-connected industry source. The text read simply: "It's official. They're back dating!"
"They who?" I replied -- knowing full well who he meant.
"Rhi/Cb" he texted back. The 'Rhi/Cb' was Rihanna and Chris Brown. I was dumbfounded. I knew Brown was featured on the full length version of Rihanna's "Birthday Cake" track off her current album. And I knew they had been seen partying at the same night spots in LA. But this industry source had assured me that the rumors of Rihanna and Chris Brown getting back together were untrue.
So why the sudden reversal of information?
My theory is this: Rihanna (or someone in her camp) read this Blind Item and started to buck at the realization that not only does she have to share Brown with his current long-suffering girlfriend, Karrueche Tran -- but she's also sharing him with Lil Wayne's baby mama, Sarah ViVan too!
My industry source, who is connected with Rihanna's record label, probably doesn't want the information about Brown and Sarah to grow legs, since this would not be beneficial to the promotion and marketing of the "Birthday Cake" track.

Radaronline reports that troubled singer Chris Brown's mom is furious at his latest online antics. Radar Online says Joyce Hawkins is angry that Brown, 22, took to his Twitter page to tell his "Haters" to "f*ck off" after things were seemingly going so well for him.
You're probably asking where his mom has been through all of his past Twitter outbursts? Allegedly, Joyce Brown is "scared" of her son's narcissistic rages, which she has been on the receiving end of.
Meanwhile, “Joyce is absolutely livid that those vile words and rants were posted on Chris’ Twitter page. She isn’t buying his excuse that he didn’t post it and she has told him that it is his Twitter page, and only he should be posting to it, period,” a source close to the situation tells RadarOnline.com.
“She feels like people were just waiting for a negative reaction to what others were saying about him. She had begged Chris to just ignore it and she is just beside herself that after such successful performances at the Grammys and winning the award, people are now talking about this Twitter controversy. … It’s time for Chris to grow up, and his mother told him that. Chris is his own worst enemy at times and she constantly worries about how he is going to react to stressful situations.”
Page Six reports that Cabaret singer Beyonce is already in the studio recording a new album. Apparently, she has given Blue Ivy to the help to raise while she and her egotistical husband Jay Z continue their pursuit of the spotlight.
We're not surprised. According to our source at the hospital where Blue Ivy was born to a surrogate in January, "mother-infant bonding did not occur in the hours following the birth." Nurses are trained to look for signs of maternal failure to bond. They are instructed to summon the hospital social worker if there are signs that a mother is not bonding properly with her newborn.
We have all seen new mommies caress their precious newborns close to their chests. But this is how Beyonce held Blue Ivy on her born day -- in the crook of her arm, like she didn't know the kid. I've seen others hold babies that way, such as volunteer baby cuddlers in newborn nurseries.
Please pray for the baby: she has narcissists for parents.
According to msnbc.com, police and Crime Stoppers in Washington state used their own personal funds to purchase the burial plots on either side of the two sons of Josh Powell to prevent his family from burying him next to them.
"The bottom line is, Josh Powell will not be near those two boys," Pierce County Sheriff's Sgt. Ed Troyer said in an interview with a Seattle-area radio program called the Ron and Don Show.
"It's disgusting that a murder suspect would be buried next to his victims," Sheriff Paul Pastor said in a statement posted on Twitter.
On Feb. 5, Powell used a hatchet to hack his sons, Charlie, 7, and Braden, 5, to death before setting his rental house on fire, killing himself. A social worker had arrived moments earlier with the children for a court-ordered visit. But the children ran ahead of her into the house, and Powell slammed the door shut behind them.
"He's a narcissist and he has no love for anyone but himself," said Kirk Graves, whose wife is Josh Powell's sister.

Troubled singer Chris Brown, and his exhausted looking girlfriend, Karabullet Train, were spotted jetting out of LAX airport on Tuesday night -- just hours after he was seen creeping at an entertainment facility with the apparently slutty baby mama of a certain amphibian rapper.
Brown was seen on Wednesday chatting on his cell phone and fondling himself on the balcony of his Miami Beach hotel while another hard leg loitered nearby. Meanwhile, his girlfriend Karpark, tweeted on her Twitter account like nothing was wrong -- like she didn't have a care in the world that her boyfriend was two-timing her right under her nose.
The west coast premiere of Lionsgates' 'Good Deeds' was held yesterday in Los Angeles. Gabrielle Union, who stars in the film, responded to the criticism directed toward Davis for throwing a party in the same hotel where Whitney Houston's body lay in rigor mortis on the 4th floor.
The Insider's Kevin Frazier asked Union about her decision to walk the red carpet.
"I think if you weren't there, I could understand [being upset]," said Union. "We made a judgment call after [Diddy] and Clive talked to the family and they said, 'Please go,' basically to provide a more balanced view of Whitney's life."
Self-centered celebrities have a peculiar habit of making poor judgment calls.
Gabrielle added that Whitney's family and friends were becoming frustrated by the focus being placed on the late singer's struggles with addiction.
Tyler Perry, who wrote, directed and stars in Good Deeds, reportedly lent one of his planes to transport Whitney's body from Los Angeles to New Jersey. On the red carpet, Tyler neglected to take credit for the act of kindness, changing the subject when pressed.
"This movie is more about just living your own life and choosing your own path ... and just being the best person that you can be," said Tyler. "So that's what I'm hoping that people will take away from it."

The Grammy Recording Academy saw fit to reward troubled singer Chris Brown with a trophy on Sunday. But that doesn't mean he has been redeemed in the eyes of the industry.
Rihanna's management has reportedly urged the singer to keep her distance from the techno junk singer.
"Her management don't want Rihanna's career to suffer. She seems to be out almost every night and people fear it's no coincidence that she and Chris have turned up at the same venue more than once," a source told Closer magazine.
"Rihanna seems to still feel a connection with Chris ' even though he has a girlfriend."
Rihanna's team are reportedly becoming increasingly worried about the star. Insiders say they are pleading with the beauty to take time out of the spotlight.
"She seems to have forgotten what a toxic relationship she and Chris had, and calls him the love of her life. People are becoming increasingly worried," the source added.
Cartoon rapper Nicki Minaj covers VIBE magazine's Feb/March 2012 issue. The magazine hits newsstands this week. Minaj is still reeling from the fallout of her controversial appearance on the 54th Annual Grammy Awards Sunday.
VIBE: You were heavy on the fashion scene last year around Fashion Week with Anna Wintour. Do you feel like you’ve been accepted by the fashion world?
NICKI MINAJ: Yeah, I realized more recently that even if it’s for a fashion magazine, I’m not gonna change who I am. When I was doing photo shoots last year, I kept on being told, “This is what we want your hair to look like and this is what we want you to look like,” and it really, really stifled my creativity. So the other day I was talking to a photographer, and he said, 'You know what, I like your everyday looks so much better than when you do photo shoots for magazines.' And I was like, 'So do I, you’re absolutely right.' I’d been getting more and more frustrated for a while. But I’ve made up my mind that when you see a Nicki Minaj magazine cover from now on, it’s really going to reflect me and it’s going to be something that I creatively had a hand in, because I don’t have to do it anymore. I don’t have to do things just to please people. It’s okay to do what I love because what I love, my fans love. And they’re really the only ones that should matter. The fashion world will have to come to Nicki Minaj, as opposed to Nicki Minaj trying to go to the fashion world.

Actress Gabrielle Union attended the PUMA Motorsport event at the Performance Motorsports Garage in Las Vegas, Nevada, yesterday. Sources say Gabrielle "deeply regrets" walking the red carpet before Clive Davis' dinner at the Beverly Hilton where Whitney Houston's body lay in rigor mortis on the fourth floor. She's telling friends that if she had to do it over again, she would have bypassed the red carpet because the fallout from her lack of good judgment wasn't worth it.
Insiders whisper that party organizers had to beg celebs to pose on the red carpet in front of the "walk-and-repeat" backdrop so the big money sponsors wouldn't get upset. Some celebs were reluctant to pose, while others flatly refused to walk the red carpet.
Radar Online reports that police and the coroner's office were instructed NOT to remove Houston's body from her hotel room while Davis' party was ongoing.
The reason given was that Davis and other party organizers didn't want a coroner's van mingling with the arriving limos and luxury vehicles.
Most narcissistic celebs wait all year to be seen at Davis' grandiose annual pre-Grammy party. They say Davis' party is the hottest ticket in town -- where you can find the biggest gathering of self-centered snobs in one room.
