Remember when a sighting of Beyonce and Jay Z caused pandemonium in the streets? Those days are over. Beyonce and Jay Z were spotted in Venice on Saturday, October 16, and no one even looked in their direction. Beyonce, 40, and Jay Z, 51, were in Italy to attend a friend's wedding.

50 Cent fired back at claims he bullied Power co-star Naturi Naughton's appearance on social media. According to The Blast, the 44-year-old troll reposted a side-by-side meme of Naughton next to Goro from Mortal Kombat. He wrote, "who the f—k did this, POWER is #1."

Naturi took offense to the meme and she responded to the rapper, whose Instagram account was shuttered after multiple complaints by users who say he is mentally abusive.

"Did we have a fight and I not know about it? So confused," she wrote. Naturi added:

"There's so much I wanna say but... You don't even have an Instagram account so... why waste my characters or come out of my CHARACTER! But do pick up a copy of my upcoming book: #whatNOTtoDoWhenYoureABoss ????? #ImNotACharacter #IAmARealPerson #IAmAWoman #IAmABlackWoman."


 

Loose Change responded to a fan who defended him against allegations that he bullied Naturi. "I thought u was sticking up for her or did I read wrong" the fan wrote. To which 5 Dimes replied, "I was sticking up for her, they just went and made some sh-t up."

Small Change is on his last leg on Twitter.com as well. My sources say he has already been warned to tone down his harassing tweets on the micromanaging platform.

Newly single mom LaLa Anthony and Empire star Jussie Smollet attended AT&T & Tribeca's launch of Untold Stories: An Inclusive Film Program at Thalassa on Tuesday, April 18, in New York City. As you know, LaLa is in the news lately because she moved out on her husband, NBA star Carmelo Anthony, who allegedly sired a baby with a stripper. Carmelo is under a lot of pressure these days, since the NY Knicks head coach Phil Jackson practically told him to seek another place of employment. Hopefully 'Melo will sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
