Rihanna's father, Ronald Fenty, approves of her getting back together with her abusive former boyfriend, Chris Brown.

In an interview with Heat magazine (via the NY Post), Mr. Fenty said, ''Chris is a nice guy and everybody's entitled to make mistakes in their life. God knows how many I've made." When asked about the singer collaborating with her ex on two songs, he responded, "She's her own woman now.''

Daddy Fenty also took credit for motivating Rihanna to lose weight after he noticed how sloppy she looked when they last saw each other when she visited her native Barbados in August. Mr. Fenty said that, at the time, his daughter was not looking her best and that he wasn't shy about critiquing her body.

It looks like singer and home wrecker Fantasia has lost her man -- to his wife. If the reports are correct, Fantasia's lover, and baby daddy, Antwaun Cook, has gone back to his wife (who never filed for divorce) and their 2 children.

Is this a success story about a womanizing man who realizes what he has at home? Did the Dopamine fade? Did Cook tire of Fantasia's neediness? Or did Cook and Paula simply play Fantasia for the dummy that she is -- and now Cook will file for full custody of the baby (and child support) since everybody knows Fantasia is not stable?

According to Radar Online, Cook's wife Paula has taken her wayward husband back.

Paula and Antwaun both ended up at Club RE:Public in Charlotte over the weekend and things got a little cozy between the two,” the source said. “I don’t know where Fantasia was, but she definitely wasn’t in the club where they were!”

“I don’t know where Fantasia was, but she definitely wasn’t in the club where they were!”

The source continued by saying that while Paula was receptive, she was still a little gun-shy with all the PDA.

“Antwaun was shoving his tongue down her throat and she kept having to push him away without trying to make a scene,” the source explained.

“He told Paula that she belongs to him because she’s still his wife!”

Fantasia and Antwaun first began dating while he was still married to Paula in early 2010, and after Paula filed a homewrecking court claim the former American Idol star tried to kill herself.

“What Fantasia doesn’t know is that through all of this, Paula hasn’t changed the locks on the house she once shared with Antwaun,” the source revealed.

“And Antwaun still has keys, so you can put two and two together.”

“Antwaun has lost interest in Fantasia,” the insider said. “He was even egging people on to take pictures of him and Paula together…he didn’t care who knew.”

Remember a while back when I promised to publish the La La Diaries and dish all of LaLa's dirt? Well, word filtered back to my ears that LaLa was on the verge of a nervous breakdown. So I held off on publishes the diaries because I have a heart and I'm nice.

Well, it turns out that part of LaLa's therapy was to face her husband Carmelo Anthony's infidelities head on rather than continue to deny them, which was causing her a lot of stress.

So in the upcoming season of LaLa's 'Full Court Life,' you will see her doing just that. In one episode, LaLa will finally break down and admit that she knows her husband has been cheating on her. But don't say I told you because that's not public knowledge yet.

In the ongoing full-court promotion to boost interest in her show, LaLa covers the April 2012 issue of Latina magazine. Inside, she discusses her internal struggles and coming to terms with 'Melo's cheating ways (she's a work in progress).

LATINA: On how she and Carmelo have lasted 8 years
LALA: “It’s been 15 days since I’ve seen my husband. That’s a long time for us to go without seeing each other. But I went on this whirlwind of launching the makeup line and my husband’s a basketball player. It’s not like he can say, ‘Hey, I’m not playing in the game today, I’m going to meet up with my wife somewhere.’ We’ve been together for eight years and I think we’ve lasted this long because we give each other space. But there’s also that time where it can be too much space.”

According to emails revealed by Wikileaks today, the U.S. Marines did not bury Al Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden at sea following his execution in a Pakistan raid by Navy seals on May 2, 2011.

Instead, the classified emails reveal that bin Laden's body was “bound for Dover, [Delaware] on [a] CIA plane” and then “onward to the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology in Bethesda [Maryland]..."

That account makes more sense than the original version that was fed to the world by the Obama administration -- that Bin Laden's bullet-riddled body was washed, wrapped and buried at sea in accordance with Muslim tradition.

The emails were leaked from the U.S. intelligence firm Stratfor, which is sometimes referred to as the “shadow CIA” by some in the media.

According to celebrity blogger JustJared, troubled singer Rihanna just touched down in Los Angeles after spending 2 works working in London. Rihanna arrived at LAX with her trusted assistant Melissa. She looked exhausted as the two women walked arm-in-arm while the paparazzi snapped away.

As you read here on Sandrarose.com, Rihanna has rekindled her romance with her abusive boyfriend Chris Brown. Despite all the reports about Brown sticking by the side of his long-suffering girlfriend, Karrueche, my sources tell me that Rihanna and Brown have been burning up the phone lines, calling and texting each other. Rumor has it that Rihanna plans to have some sort of showdown with Karrueche now she's back in LA.

We hope there won't be any violence like the last time.

Eddie Murphy and Toni Braxton are dating -- each other -- according to US Weekly magazine.

The singer, 44, and comic actor, 50, "are seeing each other and very into it," a source tells Us Weekly, adding that the romance started up four months ago.

Both Murphy and Braxton have a troubled history with relationships. But as they grow older, both stars are finding stability with each other.

The Tower Heist star -- who has eight kids from previous relationships -- even cheered on the mother of two (who's been separated from singer Keri Lewis since 2009), backstage at her Feb. 19 L.A. concert.
While Braxton's rep insists "Toni and Eddie are just friends and have been fans of each other's work for a long time," the insider says, "Their kids have met and everything. It's getting very serious." Source

Pop icon Whitney Houston's sudden death will be ruled an accident, according E! News, who quoted a source with knowledge of the ongoing investigation.

E! News reports that Houston's family always believed her death was accidental -- and not as the result of a deliberate suicide attempt.

The autopsy toxicology screen could be in the Beverly Hills Police Department's hands by next week and, depending on the status of other elements of their investigation, the case could be closed very soon afterward.

Houston, 48, was found unresponsive in a bathtub in her suite at the Beverly Hilton hotel in LA on Feb. 11. About a half dozen prescription bottles containing anti-anxiety medications, analgesics (pain meds), and the antibiotic Amoxicillin were found in Houston's hotel room.

She was seen by a Beverly Hills doctor who treated her for a sore throat a few days before she died.

Despite all of her denials, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is indeed pregnant. The portly star of the insufferably boring "Jersey Shore" reality series has already brokered a deal to break the news of her pregnancy on the cover of US Weekly magazine, according to the NY Daily News gossip column Page Six.

Although none of us watch "Jersey Shore," this news is creating a buzz all over the blogosphere. So I thought it was my duty to at least mention it.

This is the first made-for-TV child for Snooki, 24, by her boyfriend Jionni LaValle. She is about three months along.

Snooki is your typical addictive personality type who rides the Dopamine waves from one man to the next. So don't expect her and Jionni to stay together for the live birth.

Kim Kardashian is somewhere seething that she won't be the first reality star to give live birth to a made-for-TV baby.

Blogs took notice when Khloe Kardashian tweeted "weird day" on the same day that her hubby, Dallas Mavericks star Lamar Odom, was noticeably absent from the lineup during the Mavericks vs Lakers game on Feb. 22.

The Mavs publicity machine cranked out a brief excuse for Odom's absence, calling it "a family matter."

But Radaronline.com reported that Odom took a leave of absence to rush to his dying father's bedside. Under the headline "Lamar Odom Cancels Game, Dad 'Gravely Ill,'" Radar Online quoted a source who said, “It’s a really serious medical condition, which is why Lamar is taking the time off right now."

But according to TMZ.com Odom's father is not gravely ill at all. In fact, the former heroine addict told TMZ he had a stomach virus.

According to a loyal insider who begged for anonymity, up-and-coming singer Rita Ora is being positioned to steal Rihanna's spotlight. According to my source, who is well-connected on the west coast, Rihanna begged her former abusive boyfriend Chris Brown to jump on her "Birthday Cake" remix to divert attention away from Rita, who has also been in the studio with Brown.

They say Rihanna is very nervous and constantly looking over her shoulder to see how far Rita Ora is behind her.

For the 2nd day in a row, American singer Rihanna, 24, was mobbed by the British media in London as she partied at Mahiki nightclub following the 2012 Brit Awards. What could cause the normally staid, composed British media to react to Rihanna in this way? Just 2 days ago, the "Birthday Cake" singer rode the subway, where she was virtually unrecognized just like a normal commoner.

Rihanna won the Best International Female Award at the 2012 Brit Awards held at the 02 Arena yesterday. She also performed a medley of her songs. Afterwards, Rihanna partied with a few friends, including Rob Kardashian (Khloe's brother), who sneaked into Mahiki nightclub to party with RiRi.

Rihanna reportedly left the Mahiki nightclub with a woman's lipstick stain on her neck. Through good detective work (and a few phone calls), we were able to match the lipstick stain on Robyn's neck to the woman standing directly behind her in the above pic. Everyone knows RiRi is a freak. But who is this chick that was freaking on her?

All this attention Rihanna is getting could be due to the fact that she is back together with her abusive boyfriend, troubled singer Chris Brown. Maybe the British media believes Rihanna will be beaten to within an inch of her life when she returns to America -- and they may never see her again? :shrug:


According to loyal reader @MissFeven, the woman in the photo with Rihanna is Sarah Jane Crawford, a radio presenter in London.

Chris Brown and Rihanna just dropped the track that everyone has been waiting for -- "Brithday Cake," on Rihanna's 24th birthday.

As Sandrarose.com told you exclusively -- Rihanna and Chris Brown are back together as a couple.

Chris Brown is reportedly breaking the news at this very moment to his current girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, letting her know that his heart belongs to Rihanna.

I'm told that Karrueche is not taking the news very well.

There are unconfirmed reports that Bobbi Kristina Brown was found by the police doing drugs in her hotel room following the funeral of her mother, Whitney Houston, on Saturday.

The reports first surfaced on the website of online magazine The Daily Beast yesterday.

And Drudge Report, the most trafficked news aggregate website in the world, also reported the story.

According to The Daily Beast, Bobbi's family, including Houston's mother, Gospel great Cissy Houston, were "in full panic mode" when they lost sight of the 18-year-old for a few hours as Houston’s body was set to be transported to the Fairview Cemetery in Westfield, N.J., for burial Sunday morning.

“Everyone was freaking out and calling Bobbi Kristina’s cell,” said one source, a longtime family friend. “It was so much commotion and activity after the funeral that Bobbi Kristina just slipped away. Ms. Cissy [Houston, Whitney’s mother] was beside herself.”

Allegedly, Bobbi slipped away to do drugs in her hotel room while the family and friends of the 48-year-old pop icon convened at a local eatery in Newark, N.J., to remember Whitney.

Rihanna, who is reportedly dating her abusive ex-boyfriend Chris Brown again, was spotted arriving in London, England today. A source close to Rihanna's camp told Sandrarose.com exclusively that Rihanna couldn't resist running back to Chris's arms because "he's back hot."

Brown, 22, is featured on the remix of Rihanna's "Birthday Cake" interlude off her latest album, Talk That Talk. The much-anticipated single drops next week. Meanwhile, Brown's current girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, is said to be 'distraught' over the fact that Brown has been two-timing her with his old flame. A Hollywood source who knows Karrueche all too well says she's a bisexual who is into threesomes. But that's for another post.

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.

Last month when TMZ reported that singer Seal's wife, Heidi Klum, was filing for divorce, we assumed it was a publicity stunt designed to coincide with the release of his new album. But Seal arrived in Australia yesterday minus his wedding ring and sporting canary yellow nail polish. When asked if Heidi and the kids would join him later he brushed past the paps and exited the airport quickly. Ladies, if you're in the market for an aging, bald, attention-seeking singer with 5 kids, Seal is your man! Photos:Andy Athineos/INFphoto.com

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.

According to sources, troubled rapper Nicki Minaj, 29, and her longtime, abusive boyfriend/hypeman Safaree Samuel no longer live together. Samuel was conspicuously missing from Nicki's side at the 54th Annual Grammy Awards Sunday. Another man occupied Safaree's seat at Nicki's elbow in the star-studded audience.

Safaree's Twitter timeline didn't explain his absence. But a follower on Twitter tweeted that Safaree was bodily thrown out of the Staples Center by Grammy security for fighting.

Nicki was seen in NYC today where she promoted her new Viva Glam lipstick for MAC line on 'Good Morning America' this morning. Safaree was once again noticeably absent. This should come as good news for Nicki's fans, who fear Nicki may have sabotaged her career with that bizarre Satanic ritual performance during the Grammy telecast.

According to Radar Online, "Bobby Brown is expected to be in the pews Saturday at an invitation-only memorial service at Newark, New Jersey’s New Hope Baptist Church for his ex-wife Whitney Houston, despite the bad blood brewing between he and the singer's family."

When reading the various gossip blogs, it is important to have a good dose of common sense so you don't believe everything you read.

For example, there was a rumor that Whitney's mother, Cissy Houston, banned Bobby from seeing his daughter, Bobbi Kristina, in California. I guess it didn't matter that Cissy Houston was in New Jersey, not California.

That rumor was floated hours after Bobby himself released a statement to ABC News asking for privacy for his daughter, whom he said was "doing much better." So obviously they have been in contact.

It is a well-known fact in the music industry that pop icon Whitney Houston was involved in a long term lesbian relationship with her personal assistant, Robyn Crawford, before she met Bobby Brown. It was whispered that Whitney and Bobby's relationship was initially arranged by her record label to dispel the persistent lesbian rumors.

In addition to introducing her to Bobby, Houston's tomboyish image was also revamped, and she was asked to wear wigs, in an effort to soften her image and make her appear more feminine.

According to the Daily Mail, gay rights activist Peter Tatchell said her marriage to Bobby Brown was a smokescreen.

"It’s important to tell the truth about this aspect of her life," he told the Daily Star.

It's a well-known fact that Whitney's lover, Robyn, and Bobby often clashed over Whitney's increasing drug use. Friends say Whitney was into drugs before she met Bobby, but once they got together, her drug use escalated out of control.

Once again, Beyoncé was caught telling a bold faced lie after claiming she attended her husband Jay Z's concert at Carnegie Hall on Monday night.

But was she really lying this time?

On Tuesday, the 40/40 club's PR people sent out an email stating, “Despite various reports, Beyoncé did not attend Jay-Z’s concert.”

Indeed, the only photos we saw of Beyoncé were when she was leaving Jay Z's 40/40 club after the concert.

Beyoncé herself added to the confusion when a NY Daily News reporter caught up to her outside the 40/40 club. The reporter specifically asked Bey if she attended the concert.

Shortly after the booty-licious mama arrived at her husband’s 40/40 Club for post-concert festivities Monday night, we asked her if she’d gone to the show.

“Yes,” she told us, calling her spouse’s concert “amazing.”

Apparently, Jay Z and his people were concerned that not enough mention was made of Beyoncé's appearance at the 40/40 Club after the concert. The 40/40 Club needs all the publicity it can get. As you know, the bar came under scrutiny when the city's health department shut them down for failing an inspection one day after the grand re-opening last month.

Today's story on celebrity gossip site TMZ.com about 'Basketball Wives' cast member Jennifer Williams feuding with Evelyn Lozada's assistant, Nia Crooks (right), jarred my memory about an interesting email I received last year.

In her email my loyal reader, who identified herself as "Patricia," claimed to have had a torrid love affair with the still-married Williams.

Patricia wrote that she met Williams 3 years ago at the Miami Club where she earned a modest living as an exotic dancer. She said JW took an instant liking to her because she reminded JW of "a younger version" of herself.

Patricia said the two women exchanged phone numbers and JW called her just a few hours later to make sure she "got home safely." Patricia recalled how JW "wined and dined" her at fancy restaurants. Their friendship quickly blossomed into something "more meaningful," Patricia wrote.

Patricia, who admits she is bisexual, described sex with JW as "intense" but infrequent. She wrote that she and Williams, who assumed the more dominant role, argued often and Williams seemed to be obsessed with exerting complete control over her.

Tongues were wagging during the touching performance of songstress Christina Aguilera's performance at Etta James tribute on Sunday. Not because she tore the roof off the place with her amazing vocals, but because she appeared to be leaking bodily fluids on the stage.

Here's what actually happened according to US Weekly:

In photos of Aguilera's incredible tribute to James -- who passed away Jan. 20 -- fans noticed odd streaks running down her legs.

"She sang her heart out. It was a memorial service for her idol and she was nervous," an insider explains to Us of the performance. (Aguilera, 31, has been covering "At Last" for years and called James "a true gift to music and a woman of great spirit and courage" on her website after James' death."

"It was her proudest moment," the source explains. "The sweat caused her spray tan to streak."

Good answer. But she doesn't appear to be "sweating" anywhere on her body -- except in the vicinity of her vagina. Do women spray tan their vaginas? :shrug:

Earlier this week, paparazzi photos of troubled singers Rihanna, 23, and Chris Brow, 22, leaving the same nightclub fueled rumors that they were seeing each other. But nothing could be further from the truth. As we told you in this post, Rihanna and Brown, who was accompanied by his girlfriend KT, did not speak to each other.

PEOPLE confirms that Rihanna and Brown never bumped into each other that night (or any night for that matter).

Well, that could have been awkward: Chris Brown and Rihanna were both partying at L.A. nightspot Greystone Manor Supperclub, but the exes stuck to separate sides of the venue... According to the clubgoer, the exes never interacted.

According to my credible source, the fact that Brown chose Karaoke over Rihanna is "messing with her mind."

Rihanna is a classic Narcissistic Personality Disorder; she thinks she's entitled to have whomever or whatever she wants, she has little empathy for others, and she is very manipulative in relationships. Which explains why men (and women) avoid her like the plague.

Meanwhile, Brown continues to pollute the radio airwaves with his techno junk music. His latest musical offering is something called "Turn Up The Music". Click below to listen.


Rumors started last week that ex lovers Rihanna and Chris Brown were seeing each other again, but the rumors are not true. Brown and his girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, were spotted leaving the Greystone Manor separately, and at different times, after a night of partying.

Chris Brown left the club through the front door and climbed into his Range Rover with his girlfriend, KT, and some friends, while Rihanna, looking desperate and lonely, left through a side door and got into a waiting SUV with a bodyguard. My sources tell me Rihanna and CB didn't speak to each other. The media insists on putting these troubled kids back together, but the truth is they are just friends.

Meanwhile, Rihanna was spotted looking wasted as she arrived at LAX airport from Hawaii where she was spotted smoking pounds of weed and drinking to drunken excess. Rihanna looked terrible and we're all worried for her. The way Rihanna looks now, even Chris Brown doesn't want her.

Seal with Heidi Klum and two of their children were seen together in a compilation photo dated Jan. 7, 2012.

On Saturday, gossip website TMZ broke the story that supermodel Heidi Klum would file for divorce from singer Seal. 24 hours later, the couple released a statement to the Associated Press announcing their intention to separate.

The announcement was conveniently timed to coincide with the U.S. release of Seal's album of 70s Soul classics remakes, Soul 2, which drops tomorrow (Jan. 24).

This "separation" has all the earmarks of a well-orchestrated publicity stunt. Complete with a convenient leak to a popular gossip website. Sources "directly connected" with Heidi tell TMZ that the couple are separating due to Seal's temper -- not because of a third party. Of course narcissists wouldn't dare cheat on each other, right?

Furthermore, the source tells TMZ that Heidi has become "a mega-entrepreneur and extremely rich", which doesn't sit well with Seal. Oh, and did I mention that they still live together under the same roof?

That Monica Brown is NOT recording a song with stripper-turned-singer Amber Rose. Mo's producer Rico Love, who produced half of Monica's much-anticipated album, New Life, is outraged that a certain blog "misrepresented" his hard work based on a photo.

"Monica was in the studio last night when La La [Anthony] stopped by and they took pictures," Rico explained.

"[Amber] was just passing by and they took a picture together," he said of Mo and Amber, who released her first single, "Fame" last week.

"They are not recording no song together!" said Rico via phone from his seat at Madison Square Garden where Mo's husband, Shannon Brown, and the Phoenix Suns are taking on Carmelo Anthony and the NY Knicks.

"I'm losing my patience with this sh*t," said Rico as he tried to be heard above the roar of the crowd in the arena.

Rico continued: "The only duets that Mo has is with Brandy, which is due out Feb. 6," he said. "There are no duets with Monica and any other females, period!" He also revealed that the music video is slated to shoot next week.

"I know how sensitive these chicks can get, but we take our artistry very seriously," said the producer who has worked with Usher, Beyonce, Kelly Rowland and others.

"We're not trying to act nasty toward anybody. But that was totally wrong information to put out based on a picture that was taken in passing."

Monica's album, New Life, is scheduled for a March 26 release.

When media mogul Nick Cannon was hospitalized two weeks ago, his worried wife, singer Mariah Carey-Cannon, took to her Twitter page and tweeted a photo of her husband in a hospital bed. She tweeted that Nick was in "mild kidney failure" and she asked her millions of followers to pray for him.

In my Medical Minute post on Acute Renal Failure, your auntie wrote: "Nick might not be in kidney failure at all (Nick and Mariah are such drama queens)."

Since we had no real information to go on -- other than the photo and Mariah's tweets -- fans were left to guess what was really ailing Nick. I guessed that Nick might have compartment syndrome (a consequence of intense weight lifting which can lead to kidney failure), or kidney stones.

Yesterday morning Nick returned to his radio gig at 92.3 WXRK, and he finally came clean about what caused his illness: a urinary tract infection.

According to gossip blog Radar Online, Khloe Kardashian has been offered a whopping $250,000 to take a paternity test to determine if she really is a full-blood Kardashian, or O.J. Simpson's spawn.

The mystery surrounding the real identity of Khloe Kardashian's biological father can be solved with a simple DNA test, and RadarOnline.com has learned there's a $250,000 offer on the table.

Sirius XM Satellite personality Gregg 'Opie' Hughes of The Opie & Anthony Show announced on Tuesday morning that he would ante up a quarter of a million dollars if Khloe, 27, would take a DNA test to prove that the late Robert Kardashian is her father.

If Khloe accepts, the $250,000 will be donated to a charity of her choice.

We're not sure if O.J. Simpson was offered money to take a paternity test, but he sure could use the cash. His $500K Miami home is in foreclosure and it looks like he might lose the house while he serves his prison sentence.
