According to online reports, actor Mel Gibson has come under fire after his most recent racist rant was caught on tape.
Gibson's estranged baby mama Oksana Grigorieva recorded an argument between the two that turned ugly when Gibson said, "You're an embarrassment to me. You look like a f--king pig in heat and if you get raped by a pack of n---ers it will be your fault,"
RadarOnline.com has heard the tape, which also includes Mel telling Oksana he would burn down her home.
Mel's profane outbursts are littered with references to Oksana being a "whore" and "c**t".
RadarOnline.com first broke the story about how Mel, 54, and Oksana, 40, filed dueling restraining orders against each other under seal.
Published reports say Oksana is alleging Gibson punched her in the face twice during a fit of rage, giving her a concussion and knocking out two of her front teeth.
A source close to the situation says Oksana claims she was forced to tape Mel after he made a series of death threats.
Said the source, "Mel is doing everything he can to suppress this... they are the rantings of a mad man."
Celebrity gossip blogger Perez Hilton caused a storm of controversy when he posted an under-the-skirt photo of singer Miley Cyrus, who may or may not have been wearing underwear.
After catching major heat from readers and sponsors alike, Perez issued a semi-apology. Still, ABC pulled ads from his popular blog Perezhilton.com, and law enforcement may be considering child porn charges against the blogger.
Now comes word that Perez might have faked the picture -- which is even worse than if the photo were real. Who fakes photos of teenagers without panties on? And what does this mean for Perez's career as a top celebrity blogger?
Joy Behar discussed the scandal with PopEater's Rob Shuter on her show, where Shuter explained that the photo was indeed faked.
"He made that up?" Behar asked. "He made it up," Shuter replied. They then talked about the implications it may have for Perez's career. Read more...
Outspoken singer sounds off about controversial video, motherhood and much more
Erykah Badu doesn¹t back down from anything and she definitely works hard to be true to herself.

In fact, she has much more to say in this week¹s issue.
This issue of JET hits stands nationwide Monday, May 31.
British royal subject Sarah Ferguson, The Duchess of York, will be eating crow with a side order of humble pie for some time to come.
That is because the 50-year-old, known affectionately as "Fergie," fell victim to a sophisticated sting operation organized by British tabloid News of the World that has tongues wagging on both sides of the Atlantic today.
Poor Sarah was caught on camera taking a $40,000 cash bribe from a fake oil sheik in return for hooking him up with her ex-husband, Britain's Prince Andrew -- The Duke of York, and son of the Queen of England.
The $40,000 was a cash advance on $500,000 that the fake sheik promised to deliver to Sarah at a later date after she introduced him to Prince Andrew.
Sarah was caught on film saying:
"He knows that he's had to underwrite me up to now because I've got no money. So if you want to meet him in your business, look after me and he'll look after you. . . you'll get it back tenfold."
Sarah can also be heard on the video saying her ex-husband, the prince, would never take a penny from anyone because he is "Whiter than white."
Fergie was apparently so destitute while living under the roof of the Royal family, that she risked her reputation and her shaky standing with the Queen.
Lawrence Taylor's 3rd wife appeared on The Insider last night to defend her man against serious, career-ending charges that he raped a 16-year-old girl in a NY hotel room last week.
Taylor was arrested May 6th and charged with third-degree statutory rape and patronizing a prostitute. He was released on $75,000 bail.
Despite the fact that Taylor admitted paying the runaway teen $300 to perform sexual favors, his wife adamantly insists that her husband did nothing wrong.
Let's look at the facts:
Taylor admitted paying the teenager for sex. The teenager told her uncle and police she had sexual intercourse with the Pro Football Hall of Famer. A used condom was found inside Taylor's Holiday Inn motel room. What more evidence does his wife need? Certainly this isn't the first time LT has ordered up a prostitute while on the road.
But it is easy to understand why his wife would stand by him: they need the cash. That rape charge hanging over LT's head will certainly chase away the last few endorsements he has left.
Former Pro Football Hall of Fame NFL star linebacker Lawrence Taylor was arrested on Thursday, May 6, and charged with raping a 16-year-old girl inside a Holiday Inn motel room. This is not Taylor's first run-in with the law. He has a history of drug and alcohol-related offenses, and he once referred to his mansion as a "crack house."
But these new charges threaten to damage Taylor's carefully cultivated public image -- and his marriage to his 3rd wife.
Taylor, who has 3 grown children with an ex-wife, was released on $75,000 bond yesterday. His attorney was quick to say Taylor did not have sex with the runaway-turned prostitute. Arthur Aidala called Taylor a “loving family man.”
“My client did not have sex with anybody,” Aidala said. “Lawrence Taylor did not rape anybody.”
But police say Taylor paid the teen $300 in cash for her services. Normally a man doesn't pay that much cash for services not rendered.
According to online reports, the teenager was a runaway. Her family reported her missing in March. She met up with 36-year-old parolee, Rasheed Davis, who was prowling a Bronx, NY bus stop. Davis offered her food and a warm bed to sleep in. After moving her in with him, Davis quickly pimped her out to clients for sexual favors.
In light of allegations of a cheating scandal involving Barack Obama and his former campaign aide, surprisingly there are no photos available of the two of them together.
According to a loyal reader, the photo that most media outlets have been running with is not Vera Baker. Loyal reader Kandyce B. says the woman in the picture is her sorority sister named "Irene S" (I'm waiting for Kandyce to respond to my request for a picture of Irene to compare).
Though the national media has known about Vera Baker for years, they have kept the details of her alleged fling with Obama hush hush. The cheating scandal resurfaced due to new evidence in the form of hotel surveillance video, according to the National Enquirer:
"On-site hotel surveillance video camera footage could provide indisputable evidence. Investigators are working to obtain the tape. If the tape surfaces, it will explode the scandal."
For a woman who raised millions for Senator Obama during his successful 2004 campaign, there are no photos available anywhere of the two of them together at fundraising events. That's odd.
Even Baker's company website, CapeCaribbean.com, has been taken offline. Isn't she still doing business? Or are the rumors true that she was exiled to the Caribbean isle to hide out with enough cash to keep her quiet for years?
But many in Washington's close knit political circles -- including Hillary Clinton -- have known about the affair for years!
According to online reports, the Hillary Clinton campaign dug up background information on Barack Obama's mistress, Vera Baker, in 2008, but decided not to run with the scandal -- probably because Hillary knew she would lose the campaign and might need a favor from Obama later on.
This would explain why Obama installed his arch nemesis Hillary Clinton as secretary of state, and why he gave Hillary's husband, former president Bill Clinton, a cushy job in his cabinet as well.
But too many people in Washington know about Obama's affair with Vera Baker, who became the largest fundraiser for the Congressional Black Caucus.
Does Baker's split from the Black Caucus explain why Obama is giving the organization the cold shoulder lately? Could Obama be shutting them out because some members within the Caucus are spilling the teas about what they know?
Or did this story grow legs as a result of the recent departure of a certain social secretary who returned to the White House as the invited guest of HuffPo's Arianna Huffington because she couldn't swing an invite for herself?
Edited: to remove picture of Black Caucus staffer Irene Schwoeffermann, who is misidentified all over the Internet as Vera Baker...
I love it when I'm right!
According to the National Enquirer, U.S. president Barack Obama is embroiled in a cheating scandal that threatens to rock his presidency -- and his marriage!
Reportedly, Obama was caught on video in a Washington DC hotel making a secret rendezvous with a former campaign aide who helped raise millions to get him elected as a Chicago senator.
The aide, 35-year-old Vera Baker, naturally denies the allegations, but a hotel surveillance camera proves the rendezvous took place.
There are also reports that:
...top anti-Obama operatives are offering more than $1 million to witnesses to reveal what they know about the alleged hush-hush affair. Among those being offered money is a limo driver who says in 2004 that he took Vera to a secret hotel rendezvous in where Obama was staying.
An ENQUIRER reporter has confirmed the limo's driver account of the secret 2004 rendezvous. Read More...
Some of you may recall that earlier this month, Obama slipped out of the White House by himself unbeknownst to his White House press corp escorts who keep watch over him and faithfully record every move the president makes.
His disappearance that morning was in violation of White House protocol which states that the president must always have the press corp accompany him when he leaves the White House.
While everyone wondered where Obama went, the official White House response was that Obama left to attend his daughter's soccer game that morning. But when the press corp arrived at the field, there was no Obama in sight.
OK, now fast forward to yesterday, when the news broke that certain individuals are quietly offering $1 million to witnesses who know about the woman who Obama has been creeping with since 2004!!
You'd better believe that Michelle Obama knows about Barack's cheating ways which explains this cold reaction from Michelle last year:
And also helps explain why Michelle told People magazine her marriage to Barack wasn't "perfect."
I knew this would happen eventually since we all learned from the Tiger Woods scandal that narcissists frequently help themselves to available vajayjay as a means of proving their manhood through narcissistic supply (NS).
I just received this text message convo between reality TV personality Evelyn Lozada ("Basketball Wives") and her representatives on April 17, the Saturday before her nude pics were leaked onto the Internet.
Don't ask me how I got them, but the messages shows the sense of urgency that Lozada must have felt when she found out the pics were about to be leaked.
Lozada is the ex-fiancée of broke NBA player Antoine Walker.
Judging from the text messages, at first her rep had his doubts that the leaks were not a publicity stunt. But Lozada's profanity laced text responses must have assured him that it was 100% not a publicity stunt.
The nude pics, which Lozada sent to a male sex toy a few months ago, appeared on the Internet on Thursday (April 22) -- 5 days after someone sent the pics to Lozada from her own email account. The hacking incident is under investigation by the feds since hacking is a federal offense.
According to a source Evelyn is not happy about any of this. She has a teenage daughter who is still in high school, and she worries about the effect the pics will have on her.
The source said, "[Evelyn] was freaked out because someone hacked into her email account and sent her her own pictures several times from various email accounts. Someone did this to her and even emailed them to her best friend and business partner the same night."
Upon receiving the texts, I reached out to my source at VH1 who said the nude pics leak was not a publicity stunt orchestrated by them because it wouldn't help her that much since "Basketball Wives" is a relatively new show and Lozada is not that well known yet.
According to my source at VH1, "Basketball Wives" has just been renewed for a second season and the cast members were given the great news this week!
My VH1 source offered me an opportunity to speak with Lozada last night to clear up any notions that the pics were a PR stunt. But I politely declined because it was so late and I didn't know what questions to ask.
What do you think? What questions should I ask her?
Peep the text messages and a NOT SAFE FOR WORK pic after the break!
