The 41-year-old Capricorn rocked a loose fit, faded denim outfit with black heels and a bedazzled face mask whereas the "Love in This Club" rapper, a 43-year-old Libra, wore matching jeans with a maroon army fatigue sweater and matching shoes.

Jeezy carried a doggy bag and the couple held hands on their way to his leased Ferrari.

Jeannie is still getting backlash from Black women regarding her comments about being a "submissive wife" when she and Jeezy tie the knot.

"Well for me, submit does not mean that you are lower or less important than your man," Jeannie told Tamron Hall.

"Of course, Jay and I respect each other very equally. What I mean is in my work life, in my actual life, I own my businesses, I run my team, I make all of the decisions and I lead entirely in the outside of my life. So in my home, I want my man to lead. I want him to take in what I would like and what my wishes are, what my dreams are, and then incorporate it, making the overall decision that’s best for our vision together."

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson ripped down his front gate when a power outage rendered the metal gate inoperable.

Johnson shared an Instagram photo of the damaged gate of his $9.5 million Atlanta mansion after he tore the gate off its hinges following a power outage in the north Georgia area.

"Not my finest hour, but a man's gotta go to work," Johnson captioned the image. "We experienced a power outage due to severe storms, causing my front gate not to open. I tried to override the hydraulic system to open the gates, which usually works when power goes out — but this time it wouldn't."

Johnson continued: "Made some calls to see how fast I can get the gate tech on site, but I didn't have 45min to wait. By this time, I know I have hundreds of production crew members waiting for me to come to work so we can start our day."

Johnson said he did "what I had to do," to get to work so his production staff would get paid for a full day's work on the set of his superhero flick "Black Adam."

Johnson said he ripped the gate down with his bare hands.

"I pushed, pulled and ripped the gate completely off myself. Ripped it completely out of the brick wall, severed the steel hydraulics and threw it on the grass. My security team was able to meet the gate technician and welders about an hour later — and they were apparently, 'in disbelief and equally scared' as to how I ripped it off."

Don't try this at home guys!

Social media was buzzing with fake news that singer Usher Raymond broke The Weeknd's nose in a brawl.

The Weeknd stepped out this week wearing stage makeup that simulated a busted nose and a split lip for VMA rehearsals in NYC. The three-time Grammy winner turned heads on his way to rehearse for the annual fan-voted awards show in a face full of bloody makeup and fake bruises.

The 30-year-old Canadian singer/songwriter dismissed the fight rumors, saying he and Usher never had beef.

"He's one of the reasons why I make music," the "Starboy" singer told Esquire magazine. "I have nothing bad to say about Usher. The sweetest, most down-to-earth guy ever," he added.

Rumors spread that the two singers had beef after The Weeknd compared his music to Usher's 2012 single "Climax" in a previous cover story with Variety.

"I hit him up to apologize and tell him that it was misconstrued," he told Esquire. "Of course media blows things out of proportion and takes things out of context. Usher is a King and always an inspiration so it was flattering to hear what him and Diplo did on climax."

Halle Berry shared a message of self-love with her followers on Instagram.com. She shared a beautiful topless photo that shows the actress embracing herself. She captioned the image: "Self-love is never selfish."

The 54-year-old mom-of-two shared the artsy photo a day after it was reported that she plans to represent herself in her divorce from her third husband Olivier Martinez.

She filed for divorce in 2015 after two years of marriage. The couple share a 6-year-old son, Maceo.

Hollywood insiders whisper that Berry is representing herself because the case has dragged on for 5 years and she can no longer afford to pay a divorce lawyer.

According to BET, her former attorney, Marina Zakiyan Beck, withdrew from the case on July 30.

Martinez, 54, is being represented by celebrity divorce attorney Laura Wasser.

Berry has a 7-year-old daughter, Nahla Ariela, with former model Gabriel Aubry.
