R&B singer Brandy and her new “Dancing with the Stars” dance partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy enjoyed dinner together at, you guessed it: Katsuya restaurant. I hear Katsuya is co-owned by Ryan Seacrest, which explains why celebrities flock there to see and be seen.

Senegalese superstar Akon was mobbed by fans as he swept into Zimbabwe yesterday. Akon waved to delirious fans from the sunroof of a vintage Rolls Royce. The fans, who had waited in line for hours, ranged in age from teens to old folks. The award Grammy winner is in Zimbabwe to perform a concert with Jamaican reggae star Sean Paul. Tickets are priced between $15 and $100. [link]

Singer Faith Evans never says no to a home cooked meal. I hear her cook travels with her entourage wherever she goes to provide Faith with the dishes she loves so much. Faith gave a special performance for fans at Power 99 & 105.3 WDAS FM Radio Stations in Philadelphia yesterday.

Actor Guy Ritchie planted wet kisses on his sons Rocco John, 10, and David Banda as he picked them up from his ex-wife Madonna’s home in London today. The two boys were joined by one of Madonna’s bodyguards as they enjoyed dinner out with friends at Wagamamas restaurant. David turns 5 on September 24. My how he’s grown!  

The boys love hanging out with their daddy. David scarfed down spaghetti and pasta shells.
