According to Michelle of, rapper Lil Scrappy proposed to his long-suffering baby mama, Erica Dixon. Before you get excited, try to remember that reality TV shows are about as "real" as a $3 dollar bill.

Love & Hip Hop Atlanta's script called for Scrappy to "date" reality TV star Buckeey (who is already in a longterm relationship with an Atlanta photographer). So I knew something had to give for the reunion.

Tameka Raymond is reportedly upset with her ex-husband, singer Usher Raymond, for allegedly using her son Kile Glover's death to delay their contentious child custody hearing.

As I told you previously, Usher only visited 11-year-old Kile Glover "once" in the 3 weeks he stayed in ICU at a local children's hospital. Kile died of traumatic brain injuries sustained in a boating accident on Lake Lanier. Family members were upset that the media continued to describe Kile as Usher's "stepson" when Usher wasn't in Kile's life after his divorce from Tameka.

A recent development has put a new twist on the Usher and Maxwell teh ghey rumors. As you know, crooners Usher and Maxwell have been the subjects of gay rumors for years.

According to my very credible west coast connect, Maxwell recently broke up with his rumored male lover. I can't say any more than that because a child is involved (and the kid can read). But is it just a coincidence that Usher and Maxwell sat down for a private intimate dinner in New York last week?

A messy private battle over Michael Jackson's untold millions went public on Saturday when Jackson's daughter, Paris, tweeted details of a letter signed by her aunts and uncles. The letter reportedly challenged the late Michael Jackson's will as a fraud, and the siblings asked the executors of Michael's estate to step down.

In the midst of all this mayhem, Katherine Jackson, the 82-year-old Jackson matriarch, was reported missing by her nephew, T.J. (Tito Jackson's son). Paris confirmed that her grandmother was missing in a series of emotional tweets on her official account.

In a follow-up tweet on Monday, Paris, wrote: "8 days and counting . something is really off , this isn’t like her at all .. i wanna talk directly to my grandmother!!< |3"

Didn't I tell you that Basketball Wives cast member Jennifer Williams would drop her fake "bitch slap" lawsuit against Nia Crooks when the season ended? VH1 and Bravo will continue to produce degrading "reality" shows as long as their gullible viewers continue watching.

From Fresh:

Unconfirmed rumors suggest Jennifer Williams was not being asked back for another season of Basketball Wives after she filed a lawsuit against Evelyn Lozada's assistant, Nia Crooks, for slapping her face during an episode of the show [click here if you missed that].

Now, after a rough summer of having her Bentley repossessed and her estranged husband Eric's secret baby put on blast, Jennifer decided she's just had enough and has dropped the suit without settlement.

    After a month of speculation and rampant rumors, Jackson's office released another brief statement about Jackson's illness.

    Jackson's office hoped the new information would appease the media, but the statement only added to the confusion.

  • Odd Future singer/songwriter Frank Ocean made a powerful statement of courage and when he came flying out of the closet earlier this week. The 24-year-old music producer -- who is responsible for Beyonce's hit song "I Miss You" -- wrote a long, poignant letter on his Tumblr page describing his unrequited love for another man.

    Some industry insiders believe Frank Ocean was struggling with his affections for fellow producer Kanye West. It's worth noting that the industry has rallied together with unflinching support for Ocean, but Kanye, who is Ocean's mentor, is surprisingly quiet.

    The industry is buzzing since word broke that Odd Future singer Frank Ocean came out of the closet. On Wednesday, the 24-year-old songwriter/producer confirmed the rumors with an achingly beautiful letter on his Tumblr page describing his passionate, unrequited love for another male.

    The poignant letter contained enough hints for industry insiders to draw conclusions about who the male was. It was obvious to many that Frank's poetic prose was an open letter to someone in the music industry.

    As we know, most celebrities are narcissistic; they tend to fall in love with other celebrities who they believe are on their level.

    One loyal reader assembled the evidence which points directly to suspected down low music producer Kanye West. It's interesting that Kanye is the only person in Frank's circle who has not praised Ocean for coming out. Isn't Frank his protege?

    In the 1990s, rumors ran rampant that a male homosexual rapper was running through other male rappers and R&B singers in the industry. Many of us speculated who the infamous "gay rapper" was. We had our ideas but nothing was ever confirmed.

    Nowadays it's easier for gay rappers to live and love openly thanks to prominent gays in the media who promote gay tolerance.

    On the same day that CNN anchor Anderson Cooper revealed his homosexuality, Odd Future fans learned that Frank Ocean was also gay. The clean-cut Odd Future rapper reportedly admits to loving hard legs in at least 3 songs on his new album.

    Ocean is the 2nd openly gay member of the alternative collective group. Odd Future rapper Syd the Kid lives openly as a lesbian. And troubled Odd Future leader Tyler, The Creator is rumored to be down low gay.

    Beyonce was not having it when word reached her ears that BET's staff planned to seat her right next to Silicone Queen Kim Kardasian at the 2012 BET Awards on Sunday.

    Actually, the staff in charge of the seating arrangements for the awards was the production company hired by BET. But Beyonce is reportedly tired of Kim and her mother, Kris Jenner, using her for cheap publicity.

    My well-connected source on the west coast got herself a coveted volunteer position with said production company -- and she couldn't wait to text me with the TEA!

    Among my source's various duties was escorting celebrities to their seats. She told me she wasn't Bey's escort yesterday, but she was close enough to the action to overhear Beyonce telling husband Jay Z (through clenched teeth) "I am NOT sitting next to her."

    Some of us wondered aloud if Love & Hip Hop Atlanta stars MiMi Faust and Stevie J really had a 2-year-old daughter. MiMi posted several pics of the adorable toddler on her Twitter page, proving that little Eva Giselle Jordan does indeed exist.

    In the intro of the new Love & Hip Hop Atlanta reality series, narrater Mona Scott-Young says Mimi Faust and her baby daddy, Stevie J, have been together for 15 years. But Mona leaves out a lot in that brief intro. Such as the fact that Mimi and the veteran music producer have an open, revolving door relationship.

    Rumor has it that Stevie J has had multiple relationships over the past 15 years with women and men. He once dated rapper Eve and he was engaged to Whoopi Goldberg's daughter in 2008.

    Mimi recently sat down with the Jasmine Brand to clear up her open relationship with Stevie, and other rumors.

    Mimi, who cleans celebrity homes for a living, stressed that she and Stevie were not together each time he stepped out on her.

    On how long she and Stevie have been together and if they were together while he dated rapper/actress Eve:

    MIMI: "We have known each other for 15 years, we have had a born again, off again relationship and I really wanted to clear that up… When Stevie was in other relationships, we absolutely were not together."

    Singer Chris Brown's longtime girlfriend Karrueche Tran laughed off rumors that her man was fighting with Emo rapper Drake over Brown's ex-girlfriend, Rihanna.

    Karrueche was with Brown, 23, at the WiP nightclub in the basement of Greenhouse nightclub in NYC when the brawl erupted Wednesday night.

    Karrueche was seen laughing and smiling Thursday morning as she strolled outside a New York City hotel with Brown's lesbun assistant. The 24-year-old part-time model wore light grey leggings with a white printed T-shirt and red throwback Air Jordans.

    Chris reportedly ran to the cops yesterday with evidence that Drake and his Canadian mafia sparked the brawl by throwing a bottle in the general direction of Brown's head. Brown plans to press charges against Drake.

    Rappers Chris Brown and Drake are denying their participation in an all-out brawl at a New York City nightchlub last night.

    1 of the execs said the fight was over singer Rihanna, while the other exec told me the fight was over a perceived diss.

    Troubled rapper Chris Brown, who took to his Twitter page to vent his anger at Drake, allegedly started the fight by disrespecting Drake and his entourage. That's when bottles went flying.

    According to Page Six, Brown and Rihanna are “seeing a lot of each other in private.”

    But that's a lie, according to my credible source. Yes, they party in the same clubs, but any reports of a relationship are fabricated. RiRi has moved on -- and we know who she's moved on with. Why lie when the truth is far more interesting?

    The Bible preaches using the rod sparingly to subdue and "train up" an unruly child.

    But Fayette County police allege that Creflo Dollar, the charismatic founder and leader of World Changers mega-church in Stone Mountain, skipped the rod and, instead, used his bare hands and fists to beat his youngest daughter into submission.

    What should have been a private family discussion exploded onto the national headlines and fueled debates on how far parents can go when disciplining their own children.

    Dollar, 50, was arrested early Sunday morning after his 15-year-old daughter, Lauren Dollar, called Fayette County police at 1 a.m. to report that her father choked and punched her during an argument that escalated out of control. Police noted "superficial abrasions" on the teen's neck.

    Dollar admitted he "restrained" his daughter after she "became very disrespectful" when he told her she couldn't attend the party.

    Lauren told police the altercation wasn't the first incidence of violence in the Dollar home, and that she felt threatened in the home.

    All those news reports about the 'Causeway Cannibal' Rudy Eugene "eating" the flesh of his victim, Ronald Poppo, were wildly premature and sensationalism by the national media.

    According to autopsy reports, Eugene's stomach contained undigested pills -- most likely Ecstasy -- not human flesh. Police and emergency personnel in Miami reported seeing chunks of skin on the ground near the victim following the May 26 attack. Eugene also had flesh between his teeth.

    Police investigators assume Eugene consumed an MDMA type drug such as "bath salts" which is known to cause extreme violence and aggression.

    Lab results show the presence of marijuana in Eugene's system. But Eugene's family say Eugene was a regular pot smoker.

    Poppo, whose face was mangled beyond recognition, was transported to Jackson Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center where he remains in serious condition. He is unable to tell doctors or investigators what happened.

    It seems the Dopamine faded long ago for Hounsou, 48, and Kimora, 37, who "aren’t as committed to each other as they used to be.

    “Djimon walked out on Kimora,” says the source, who adds that the split may have been prompted by Simmons’ ex-husband, hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons' decision to stop funding his wife's lifestyle.

    She was not scheduled to be a surprise guest on Nicki Minaj's set at the Hot 97 Summer Jam. Rumors swirled that Lauryn Hill and Nas were supposed to come out while Nicki was onstage, but Nicki pulled out of the event after Nicki and her boss, Lil Wayne, took offense to Peter Rosenberg, of Hot 97's morning show, dissing Nicki's attempt at pop music on her last album.

    That's a sore spot for Nicki because she thought she was a crossover star, but her album sales were flat when the pop world (read: Caucasians) didn't embrace her new music.

    Despite Nicki's departure, the show went on with Lauryn and Nas performing without Nicki.

    Phaedra's friend wondered why the blogs were writing these things about Phaedra and Appollo breaking up when they are still together.

    One blogger in particular, Michelle, of Straight From the A blog, wrote a post suggesting that Apollo is tweeting random groupies from an apartment somewhere in Buckhead. But Apollo doesn't have a job, so how can he afford to pay the rent on an apartment?

    According to my inside sources, Brandy Norwood is throwing her former duet partner Monica Brown under the bus after their single "It All Belongs to Me" failed to meet expectations.

    And now their upcoming tour has been scrapped. But Brandy is placing the blame for the failed tour squarely on Monica, saying Monica is more focused on her sons and husband, Shannon Brown, than she is on touring.

    But that's not true, according to my source. He told me there were issues with the top billing (whose name would go first) as well as money issues (who would get paid more). He said Brandy derailed the tour by demanding top billing and more cash upfront.

    "It's a done deal. And [the deal] fell through," said my source.

    Yesterday rumors swirled on that industry basketball Rocsi Diaz had snagged herself yet another industry Metrosexual male.

    Rocsi, who almost caught a beat down from LisaRaye for messing around with then-husband -- and was supposedly dating Bruno Mars, is now reportedly dating actor/comedian Eddie Murphy.

    But when Global Grind reached out to Diaz for a comment on her latest sexual conquest, Diaz replied "We are not dating we were just getting coffee."

    I believe her. Eddie Murphy is not exactly a stable bachelor. He runs through females like a laxative. And Diaz is not ashamed about spreading her legs wider than the Grand Canyon.

    They deserve each other.
