From loyal reader Dana L:

Bobby Brown was in Jacksonville, Florida performing with Ralph Tresvant and Johnny Gill when he called his lady and baby out on the stage, he got down on one knee and asked her to marry him. He said this time he will work harder on this one than he did on the last one. This happened Friday Night, May 7th.

Rap Diva Trina wanted the world to know that her reunion with former boyfriend Kenyon Martin was not a ploy to help promote her new album. So she packed him off to Atlanta yesterday to sit by her side while she signed CDs at DTLR sporting goods store in Camp Creek (a suburb of Atlanta).

This is how closely Trina monitors Kenyon's every move like a hawk! My spies tell me that while Trina was signing autographs, Kenyon received a call on his iPhone. She immediately jumped up and demanded to see his phone. Once she was satisfied that the call was innocent, she resumed signing CDs.

According to rap mogul and entrepreneur Sean "Puffy" Combs, he is not managing rapper/stripper Nicki Minaj. During a Ustream broadcast on Wednesday night (May 5), Combs told viewers to disregard rampant rumors that he is managing the Young Money artist.

"For the record, as I said before, don't believe the rumors. I have not made no announcement yet, don't believe no rumors about anything y'all hear. me and Nick, we just cool. I like her style. Rick Ross, he's my brother. There's no management announcements or none of that. So everybody, worry about what you're worrying about. It's all right for people to know each other and have an admiration towards each other and maybe pick each other's brains for advice. I will be making an announcement in a couple of weeks on some things. But right now, everybody let's chill out and be cool and stay focused on being positive..."

Mr. Combs is right kids. Why be negative when being positive is far more rewarding and productive?

Rapper T.I. is keeping busy in his home studio cranking out tracks for his upcoming CD "Paper Trail". T.I. is seen here in a photo snapped at his Jonesboro home where he awaits trial on federal gun charges.

T.I. expected to be off of house arrest by this month, but his hopes suffered a setback when his trial originally scheduled for Jan. 3 was rescheduled for next month.

The Bring 'Em Out star, real name Clifford Harris Jr., was arrested in October (07) while allegedly trying to buy unregistered machine guns and silencers. He is currently being held on house arrest and faces counts for possession of unregistered machine guns and silencers, and possession of firearms by a convicted felon.But the MC's Thursday hearing at an Atlanta, Georgia, court was postponed by U.S. Magistrate Alan Baverman until February 19 - however, it is unknown why the judge ordered the date to be rescheduled.

Harris' legal team was expected to call for key government evidence obtained during the raid to be dismissed, claiming a search of his vehicle was conducted without "a warrant, consent or probable cause". (Source)
