    This is beyond ridiculous! I am not one to tell anyone how they should spend their finances, but $200,000 a month on a duplex when there are children starving in the world? Just because you have the means doesn't mean you should be reckless and wasteful with it.

    According to online reports, Cruise and Holmes "fell in love" with a two-story penthouse apartment in Donald Trump's building on Park Avenue.

    The duplex has a huge terrace, four bedrooms, six bathrooms, a den, a library, dining room and kitchen - and boasts 360 degree views of Manhattan.

    Trump building boss Michael Cohen tells the New York Post, "She saw it and she loved it. They're very interested and are now making their decision." (Source)

    At least they're not buying the penthouse so they won't be stuck with a home mortgage of $200,000-a-month. The penthouse is on the market for a staggering $45 million.

    Young Jeezy is on the cover of VIBE magazine's August issue on stands now. Inside, Jeezy talks about sharing a hug with Republican presidential hopeful John McCain on Saturday Night Live:

    No disrespect to my man Barack [Obama].... [McCain] greeted me like a G. … The fact that he acknowledged me was crazy. I said, ‘I’m Young Jeezy, and it’s rough out here.’ He blew me off at first. I was like, ‘Nah, for real. It’s rough out here, so what you gonna do to change it?’ ... I like Barack, but at the same time I wanted to see what McCain was talking about.

    Jeezy said he asked McCain if he had any plans for the hood: 'You gotta fix it, you know that, right?' And he gave me a look back, like, 'I know.' "

    Jeezy also opens up about his relationship with Keyshia Cole which ended on a sour note earlier this year when Keyshia dumped him for flamboyant ex-boxer Floyd Mayweather. Jeezy tells VIBE that Keyshia proposed to him and offered to buy the ring, but Jeezy turned her down.

    There's no mention in the article of the fact that Jeezy paid cash for Keyshia's $750,000 Atlanta mansion or that he gave Keyshia the deed to the property. My source says Keyshia ultimately left Jeezy because Jeezy simply couldn't compete with Mayweather's substantial bankroll (after all, a girl has to eat).

    In addition to that, my inside source tells me Mayweather dropped a cool $3 Mil on an Atlanta mansion for Keyshia and he also picked up the tab on Keyshia's swanky Buckhead condo (seen in her reality TV show).

    All I can say is, it must be nice!
