Arrest Warrant Issued For Cuba Gooding Jr. For Shoving A Bartender! UPDATED

Side Note: His black azz know better! Chile!!!! 

Updated: Cuba has been cleared, warrant dropped:

 Via TMZ:

TMZ broke the story ... an arrest warrant was issued for Cuba for allegedly roughing up a female bartender at the Absinthe House on Bourbon Street early Tuesday morning after she asked him to leave. The bartender told police Cuba had become irritated at several bar patrons for taking his photo and cussed 'em out. Now Cuba's rep tells us, the actor has taken steps to resolve the situation -- saying, "There is no warrant. Mr. Gooding, his representative and the New Orleans authorities met this morning and are moving swiftly to resolve this misunderstanding." 

Via ABC News:
Cuba Gooding, Jr. no longer has a warrant out for his arrest, but New Orleans police department spokesperson Frank Roberson told ABC News the actor will appear in court Friday morning and is expected to plead no contest after allegedly pushing a female bartender.

Gooding’s publicist said the “Red Tails” actor, “his representative and the New Orleans authorities met this morning and are moving swiftly to resolve this misunderstanding.” A warrant for Gooding’s arrest was issued Tuesday. According to New Orleans police, Gooding allegedly pushed a female bartender on Bourbon Street after becoming aggravated by a group of fans. When she informed him that one her co-workers had called 911, he allegedly pushed her again and walked out of the bar.

Cops obtained an arrest warrant for Gooding for municipal battery. In March, a group of women accused Gooding of groping them at a New Mexico bar. The actor characterized the allegations as “bulls**t” to TMZ.

Chris Brown Weighs In On Jackson Family Drama!


Chris Brown weighed in on the Jackson family drama a few days ago. Deets below:

Via Huffington Post:

 The Jackson family feud is heating up as Michael Jackson's mother, Katherine, just lost custody of her late son's three children.

A Los Angeles judge has temporarily given guardianship of Prince, Paris and Blanket Jackson to Michael's nephew T.J. after an all-out war broke out in Katherine's Calabasas, Calif., home.

According to TMZ, the scuffle began after Janet Jackson allegedly tried to grab Paris' cellphone, and Janet slapped her teenage niece and called her a “spoiled bitch” during a violent face-off outside the home. Things are pretty crazy for the Jackson family, so it makes complete sense that Chris Brown would feel the need to weigh in on the issue. On Wednesday, the singer, who is constantly in the news for his own drama, which includes beating his former girlfriend, breaking windows in news studios and being involved in bar brawls, turned to Twitter to tell the family to tone it down.

 That Jackson family feud shit gotta stop! Stop making y'all business public! Michael was under enough scrutiny. July 25, 2012 12:01 pm via Twitter for iPhone 

 Don't put the kids through the bullshit! Work y'all shit out as a family and stop giving them the pleasure of fucking wit y'all! July 25, 2012 12:03 pm via Twitter for iPhone 

 The 23-year-old singer, who has often spoken of his admiration for Michael Jackson, ended his thoughts on the matter by writing, "Love y'all!"

Brown might not be the best person to tell anyone to chill out, but Michael’s 14-year-old daughter, Paris, who is currently in the middle of all this drama, did appreciate his words, and wrote: "@chrisbrown thanks chris<3"

Update: DUMPED! Robert Pattinson Drops Kristen's Azz And Moves Out Home!

After begging in her apology via PEOPLE, doesn't seem like Rob is ready to hear it. He has dropped her and moved out their home. KARMA! Deets below:

 Via USA Today:
Guess that public apology wasn't enough. Following the revelation that his Twilight co-star and girlfriend of three years, Kristen Stewart, cheated on him, Robert Pattinson has left the Los Angeles home the two had shared, reports People.com And, as if loyal Pattinson fans aren't already steaming enough, US Weekly reports that Stewart wore Pattinson's baseball cap during her fling with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. The nerve!

Update: Prince Jackson Tweets! Upset At Aunts/Uncles Over His Grandmother!

 Additional deets below Via CNN:
Los Angeles (CNN) -- Michael Jackson's oldest son blasted his famous aunts and uncles on Twitter on Thursday for taking his grandmother away and keeping her out of touch for 10 days.

"I'm really angry and hurt," Prince Jackson tweeted. His tweets came just hours after Katherine Jackson returned to the Calabasas, California, home where she has been raising Prince, 15, Paris, 14, and Prince Michael II, 10, who's also known as Blanket.

A judge suspended Katherine Jackson as their guardian Wednesday because of her absence, which her own lawyers suggested might have been against her will. TJ Jackson, the 34-year-old son of Tito Jackson, was named temporary guardian.

"Although I am happy my grandma was returned, after speaking with her I realized how misguided and how badly she was lied to." Prince Jackson tweeted. Kids forgotten in Jackson family feud? Jackson family 'scuffle' caught on camera Jackson family drama an unwanted reality show Janet, Jermaine, Randy and Rebbie Jackson teamed up to take their 82-year-old mother to a spa near Tucson, Arizona, on July 15, later saying it was under a doctor's orders.  
The three children, who have been in their grandmother's custody since their father's sudden death three years ago, became upset after several days of not hearing from her. Critical tweets have flowed from sister Paris for days, but her older brother is now being heard.

"I have been holding off on backing up my sister and her tweets avidly because I was waiting for the time to reveal my side," Prince Jackson tweeted. His tweets included a photo of his cell phone screen, which he said showed "a group chat I had started to several family members.

This group text message I had started was replied to but they didn't know that I could see the responses. For this whole time, they denied us contact to our grandmother." The image shows Prince texting to aunts Rebbie and Janet Jackson: "This is enough so I am texting you for the simple fact that WE DEMAND TO SPEAK TO MY GRANDMA NOW!!!" The reply, apparently from Janet Jackson, was: "Don't let them pls." The text exchange came three hours after Janet Jackson was seen on security camera video apparently attempting to take Paris Jackson's cell phone away in the driveway of Katherine Jackson's home.

Janet Jackson's representative did not immediately reply to CNN's request for comment.

The Twitter posting referred to lessons taught to him by his father. "As long as I can remember my dad had repeatedly warned me of certain people and their ways," he tweeted.

The tweet concluded with this: "If you continue with your lies I will continue with the truth." It was signed "Michael Jackson Jr."

Judge suspends Katherine Jackson as guardian of Michael Jackson's children Before Katherine Jackson began the long drive back to California on Wednesday, she appeared on camera and read a statement to ABC News. As her children Rebbie, Jermaine and Janet stood behind her, she read from a yellow notepad: "I am devastated that while I've been away ... my grandchildren have been taken away from me, and I'm coming home to see about that," Jackson said. The network was not allowed to ask her any questions.

At a hearing Wednesday, Katherine Jackson's attorney Sandra Ribera told Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff that there was reason to believe Jackson had been held against her will. Beckloff suspended her as the children's custodian because she may be "prevented from acting as a guardian because of the acts of third parties."

Another one of her lawyers, Perry Sanders, said he would meet with his client Thursday morning before filing a petition to restore her as custodian. Katherine Jackson was unaware of the controversy swirling around her family for the past week, he said. In her statement, Katherine Jackson disputed the judge's findings. "I am here today to let everybody know that I am fine and I am here with my children, and my children would never do a thing to me like that, holding me against my will. It's very stupid for people to think that," she said. The judge also ordered that singer Diana Ross, whom Michael Jackson named as backup guardian in his will, and Debbie Rowe, the biological mother of the two oldest children, be given notice of the order.

Chris Brown, Rihanna, Kanye, Kim K, Leonardo DiCaprio & Others Party On Yacht With Royalty In St. Tropez + R & CBreezy Kiss In St. Tropez!?

Stars flock to St. Tropez as they do every summer around this time.

However folks are keeping a lookout for rumored couple Rihanna and Chris Brown. Reps have denied anything is going on and say the two have not rekindled their romance, stating Chris is only there to shoot a video.


But too many coincidences have occurred.

Now the two were spotted on a Luxury yacht partying with the likes of Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, Leonardo DiCaprio and Saudi royalty. Sources say the two shared a kiss in front of the celeb crowd. Well where was Chris' girlfriend Ms. Tran, who is rumored to also be in St. Tropez with Chris? Hanging out in a swank hotel room? Something is off.  Deets below:

Via NY Post:

Rihanna and Chris Brown could be collaborating yet again. According to sources, the pair with a checkered past — who most recently worked together on RiRi’s remix of “Birthday Cake” — were overheard discussing Rihanna’s making an impromptu cameo in a video Brown’s been shooting along the French Riviera with hip-hop brethren Swizz Beatz and Ludacris.

Rihanna and Brown were seen together in a marathon conversation Sunday night in St. Tropez as guests on the Serene, a $300 million yacht owned by Russian vodka billionaire Yuri Shefler.

Also aboard were Leonardo DiCaprio, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, as well as members of the Saudi royal family and the night’s host, Crown Prince of Dubai Sheikh Hamdan. “Rihanna had her own yacht moored nearby,” said a spy, “and Chris had been visiting her. But they came over to The Serene Sunday to join Leo with Swizz Beatz and Ludacris.” Our source added, “There were clearly sparks flying between Rihanna and Chris. They spent a lot of the night in deep conversation. It’s clear things are very good between them again. They seemed happy to be together.”

Another source added that the two were heard discussing a possible appearance by RiRi in Brown’s video, although others say that she hasn’t shot footage yet. Meanwhile, Brown’s playing a gig at Cannes club Gotha tonight. On the Serene, we’re told DiCaprio celebrated without girlfriend Erin Heatherton before his “The Wolf of Wall Street” films next month.

West entertained guests at sea by performing two or three songs.

Also in St. Tropez, Unik Ernest’s Edeyo Foundation drew 400 for a glittering Haiti fund-raiser at a chateau rechristened The Pepsi Castle. DJ Steve Angello rocked the Monday night bash where Tara Reid was spotted dancing on a banquette after being treated for food poisoning and a weekend jet-ski mishap. The party raged till cops arrived at 4 a.m., but the crowds simply relocated to Les Caves du Roy.

Via NY Daily News:

RIHANNA and Chris Brown don’t feel like they have to hide in international waters. A source on the yacht of Malaysian billionaire Taek Jho Low with RiRi and Brown Sunday evening in Saint-Tropez says the former couple were kissing in plain sight of other partygoers like Kanye West, Kim Kardashian and Leonardo DiCaprio.

“It was a very private party on a yacht, so they were not worried,” says the source. West put on a show for guests, performing some of his newest music and even serenading Kardashian during his last song. But Rihanna’s partying was put on hold when she cut her toe, says the insider, which resulted in her skipping Unik Ernest’s Edeyo Foundation at the Pepsi Castle Monday.

It didn’t seem to hurt her shopping prowess, however. Earlier that day, the Barbados-born singer picked up six similar rings for her girlfriends at Saint-Tropez jewelry store Senso before popping into Lanvin. Both stores were closed for RiRi to shop in private.

Update: TJ Jackson, Tito's 34 Yr Old Son Gets Temporary CUSTODY Of MJ's Kids


The ongoing drama in the Jackson family has taken another interesting turn. After Mrs. Katherine Jackson was found safe in Arizona with family, resting. The drama between Paris and some of Jackson siblings escalating the way that it did, has now put their business on front street for the media and public. Now the son of Tito Jackson, TJ (TJ is also an ex of Kim Kardashian) has been granted temporary guardianship of Michael Jackson's three children.


 Via TMZ:
There's a reason TJ Jackson had a lawyer prepare legal papers to make him the temporary guardian of Michael Jackson's kids -- he has already partially assumed that role ... and he even has the Kim Kardashian stamp of approval. TMZ broke the story ...

TJ became alarmed when Katherine Jackson -- the current legal guardian -- disappeared for more than a week. Jackson sources tell us ... TJ -- the 34-year-old married son of Tito -- has had a strong connection to Paris, Prince and Blanket for years, but was especially comforting after MJ died. One example ... at the Michael Jackson tribute show in Wales, Katherine was by herself in a private area, far from the kids. TJ was in full dad mode, helping Blanket tie his shoes, helping Prince tie his tie. He made sure the kids were fed during the concert, which lasted for hours. Kim Kardashian, who dated TJ for 4 years, tells friends, of all the Jacksons ... TJ was the closest to Michael and his kids. She says TJ had a "father-like" relationship with Michael's kids, adding, "He's a very honest and trustworthy person and everyone knows he'll do the right thing."

Paris, Prince and Blanket adore TJ and are behind the temp guardianship move, and that's something that will weigh heavily with the probate judge. We're told TJ is in wait mode -- to see what happens with Katherine. But the papers are drafted and he's ready to make his move in court.

UPDATE: Katherine's lawyer, Perry Sanders, said he would oppose any effort to make TJ the permanent guardian. Sanders said he had no basis for believing Katherine was kidnapped.

Sanders says he thinks this whole thing was a "giant misunderstanding." When Katherine returns to L.A., he says he will file a motion to reinstate Katherine as guardian. Perry says Randy assured him Katherine was coming home today.

Sanders says TJ was the "logical person" to become temporary guardian. Sanders says he believes TJ will be thrilled to handle the guardianship mantle back to Katherine when she returns, but that's not the way it sounded in court. We're [TMZ] live outside the courthouse where a judge named TJ Jackson temporary guardian of Michael Jackson's three children -- and SUSPENDED Katherine Jackson's guardianship.

UPDATED: SCANDALOUS!!! Kristen Stewart Cheats On Robert Pattinson With Married Director!


The model wife of married director Rupert Sanders who had a fling with Kristen Stewart, sent cryptic text messages and then deleted her account Tuesday night as the news broke of her husband’s infidelity.

Liberty Ross, 33, has two children with the Snow White and the Huntsman director, and even played Kristen’s mom in the film, but she seemed shocked when the allegations of Kristen’s fling with Rupert broke, ranting on Twitter and then deleting her account. She retweeted a Marilyn Monroe quote that said: “'Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together,” and then quoted poet Maya Angelou, writing: “'If you find it in your heart to care for somebody else, you will have succeeded.” She must have been blindsided by the news that her 41-year-old husband hooked up with his much younger co-star, after she spent extensive time on set with both of them. Liberty’s final Tweet before deleting her account was a succinct “WOW.”

Rob Pattinson’s girlfriend apparently was caught kissing the married director and the two “couldn’t get enough,” of each other an eyewitness told Us Weekly. Rupert spoke about Kristen, 22, last month, telling E! News: “She’s got a great spirit, she's really quite rebellious...and feisty and kind of wild. And that's really what I wanted the modern Snow White to have. “I didn't want her to be timid and I didn't want her to be frightened and relying on men, you know. She's very strong and very driven, and I think that's true in her personal life... She's got a big weight of the world on her shoulders and she carries it incredibly well.”

Rupert has already signed on to direct the sequel of Snow White and the Huntsman. That should be an interesting set!


Trouble in paradise? Maybe so if reports are true. PEOPLE and US MAGAZINE will be reporting in their new issues set to release Friday that "Twilight Saga" star Kristen Stewart cheated on her boyfriend "Twilight Saga" co-star Robert Pattinson.


Not only that but the person whom they say she cheated on him with is none other than the married director of her latest film "Snow White". Chile!!!


 Deets below: Via OMG:

“Twilight” fans everywhere will be devastated. Kristen Stewart cheated on co-star/boyfriend Robert Pattinson with her “Snow White and the Huntsman” director Rupert Sanders, who is married with two children, reports both Us Weekly and People. 

According to a photographer who snapped the actress and her 41-year-old director during a “marathon makeout session” on July 17 (Us Weekly has the pics in its new issue, on newsstands Friday), the two “couldn’t get enough” of each other. Almost immediately after the indiscretion, Stewart, 22, had a change of heart and now feels terrible. “Kristen is absolutely devastated," a source tells People, which was the first to break the story. "It was a mistake and a complete lapse in judgment." And won’t happen again, adds the source. “She wasn't having an affair with Rupert. It was just a fleeting moment that shouldn't have happened. She never meant to hurt anyone. She's a good person who just made a bad choice." 

Stewart and Pattinson, 26, have been dating since they first met while playing lovers in the first film in the “Twilight” series in 2008. At the time, the actress was in a long-term relationship with fellow actor Michael Angarano, who was reportedly crushed when she left him for Pattinson. Although both heartthrobs try to play coy about their relationship, she did admit in the June issue of Elle that Pattinson was her "f--king boyfriend."  

It's unclear if Pattinson is aware of what allegedly happened between Stewart and Sanders. The couple appeared happy together at the Teen Choice Awards this past Sunday, and even wore coordinating blue-and-black outfits when they stepped onstage to accept the "Ultimate Choice" honor. (They did not walk the red carpet either together or separately.) 

A few days before the July 17 incident, Stewart and Pattinson giggled as they dished on Bella and Edward's sex scene in the upcoming "Breaking Dawn – Part 2" at Comic-Con. The final installment in the “Twilight” series will hit theaters November 16 … but will Robsten still be together? 

Reps for both Stewart and Sanders, who is married to model-actress Liberty Ross, had no comment.

Classic episode of "The Jeffersons":

Ghana President John Atta Mills Passes At Age 68 - R.I.P

The President Of Ghana, John Atta Mills passed away at the age of 68. Condolences go out to the people of Ghana and his family. Additional information below.

 Video archive of President Atta Mills speaking to CNN:

 Via The Root:
President John Atta Mills of Ghana died Tuesday afternoon in Accra, the country's capital, according to Reuters. He was 68.

The president's office sent a statement about his passing: "It is with a heavy heart ... that we announce the sudden and untimely death of the president of the Republic of Ghana."

Reuters is also reporting that a presidential aide said Mills had complained of pains on Monday evening and died on Tuesday after his condition declined.

Mills took office on Jan. 7, 2009, as the third president of the Fourth Republic of Ghana. He was rumored to have been ill during his presidency and drew concern after traveling to the U.S. for a medical checkup earlier this year.

John Dramani Mahama, who became vice president of Ghana in 2009, was sworn in as president. Mahama has contributed several pieces to The Root over the course of his vice presidency, including an exclusive excerpt from his recent memoir, My First Coup d'Etat: And Other True Stories From the Lost Decades of Africa.
Via Chron.Com:
ACCRA, Ghana (AP) — President John Atta Mills vowed to help spread the wealth from Ghana's newly discovered offshore oil fields, though his death Tuesday came before the 68-year-old could even finish his first term in this West African nation long held up as a model of democracy.

Ghanaian state-run television stations GTV and TV3 broke into their regular programming to announce the president's death, which comes three days after his 68th birthday. Chief of Staff John Henry Martey Newman told the nation that Atta Mills had died Tuesday afternoon at the 37th Military Hospital in Accra but gave no details about the cause. "It is with a heavy heart and deep sorrow that we announce the sudden and untimely death of the president of the Republic of Ghana," Newman said. Louis Agbo, a university student in Accra, said the television stations interrupted regular programming to announce Atta Mills' death and he was shocked by the news. "I could not even shout or cry," Agbo said. "I rushed outside and saw people crying and wailing on the street."

The nation stood by for a speech by Vice President John Mahama, who will become president under the nation's laws. Chris Fomunyoh, the senior director for Africa for the Washington-based National Democratic Institute for International Affairs, said that Ghana's democracy could weather the death of a president. In other nations in West Africa, the death of a ruler usually spells a coup, as it did in neighboring Guinea following the 2008 death of longtime dictator Lansana Conte, and Togo, where the military seized power after the president's death in 2005 in order to install the leader's son. "Ghanaian democracy has been tested and its institutions function well," said Fomunyoh. "There's no reason to think that Ghana and its democracy will not handle this event properly."

Ghana, whose economy has been fueled by gold, cocoa and timber exports in the past, hopes to put its oil money to good use, mindful of how nearby Nigeria suffered through military dictatorships and widespread corruption over its oil wealth. Atta Mills was elected in a 2008 runoff vote — his third presidential bid — after campaigning on a platform of change, arguing that the country's growth had not been felt in people's wallets. "People are complaining. They're saying that their standard of living has deteriorated these past eight years," he told The Associated Press in 2008. "So if Ghana is a model of growth, it's not translating into something people can feel." Atta Mills even put up campaign posters of himself standing next to a cutout of U.S. President Barack Obama in an effort to emphasize that he too stood for change. Atta Mills had traveled to the United States in March where he met with Obama. The Ghanaian leader also traveled to the U.S. in April as well, as rumors about his health began to circulate Ghana.

Opposition newspapers had recently reported that he was not well enough to run for a second term. A government official in neighboring Ivory Coast said that he saw Atta Mills around six months ago in Ethiopia during an African Union meeting. "We are hearing that he died of cancer of the throat. I saw him in Addis Ababa — not this meeting, but the one maybe six months ago," said the official, who requested anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the press. "He was walking slowly. I am surprised to learn that he is only 68. He looked much older." Still, the official said no one suspected he was gravely ill. "Yes, his death is a surprise — it's six months before the election, and he was a candidate." Atta Mills won the 2008 second round ballot capturing a razor-thin victory with 50.23 percent of the vote — or 4,521,032 ballots.

His opponent, Nana Akufo-Addo, garnered 49.77 percent — or 4,480,446 votes. Atta Mills also served as vice president under Jerry Rawlings, a coup leader who was later elected president by popular vote and surprised the world by stepping down after losing the 2000 election. Atta Mills spent much of his career teaching at the University of Ghana. He earned a doctorate from London's School of Oriental and African Studies before becoming a Fulbright scholar at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California.

Los Angeles - Feuding among Michael Jackson’s family reached a new level Monday when a “scuffle” erupted at Katherine Jackson’s home in Calabasas, California, according a sheriff’s spokesman. Paris Jackson, the 14-year-old daughter of the late pop icon, posted a Twitter message about the time the incident was happening: “gotta love fam.” She also tweeted about her distress about not hearing from her grandmother for more than a week: “8 days and counting . something is really off , this isn’t like her at all .. i wanna talk directly to my grandmother!!<|3″ Deputies were called to the mansion where Katherine Jackson has been raising Prince, 15, Paris and Blanket, 10, since their father died three years ago, Los Angeles County sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore said.

It's Official: Mariah Carey Joins AMERICAN IDOL, Alongside Her Manager Randy Jackson!


As previously reported, Mariah has been in deep discussions to be a new judge on "American Idol". Well now it's official, Mariah hit up facebook, twitter and her official website with the news!


Mariah shared the following good news online:

It's gonna be so much fun working on American Idol. As a singer-songwriter, I'm excited to help find and nurture new talent. LYM! --MC"

Additional deets below... Via Entertainment Weekly:

Paula Abdul, Jennifer Lopez and now … Mariah Carey. Fox just made it official: Carey is the latest successful pop diva to join American Idol.

The 42-year-old will join the judges table for season 12. As reported in this week’s issue of EW, Carey has been the leading contender to join the panel this summer, which has seen a flurry of celebrity names floated in the press as possible candidates. Her salary is expected to be somewhere north of $12 million — the sum paid Jennifer Lopez during her first year on the show — and possibly as high as $17 million.

Previously, Simon Cowell was courting Carey as a mentor for X Factor’s second season, though it’s not clear if her Idol announcement precludes an appearance on Fox’s other show. “It’s the biggest recording artist than any of these [singing competition] shows have ever had,” Fox entertainment president Kevin Reilly told critics at their press tour in Beverly Hills on Monday. “It’s an artist many of these contestants have tried to emulate. [The deal] only concluded only hours ago. Not being the only game in town we need to keep things fresh.

The move comes on the heels of Steven Tyler exiting the hit singing competition, and Fox being unable to convince Lopez to sign on for a third round. Lopez was holding out for a raise beyond her $15 million second-year salary and took to the media to proclaim that she was almost certainly leaving the show. If there was a slight chance of Lopez staying before, it vanished once Fox signed Carey — Fox won’t pay for two high-priced female vocalists. “I think I can say it’s 100 percent that Jennifer won’t be back on the show,” Reilly said. Earlier in the morning, Idol executive producer Nigel Lythgoe (who’s not involved in the judges talks) expressed hope that Lopez would change her mind. “I was really upset to hear of Steven leaving us and the possibility of Jennifer leaving us. She did say ’99 percent.’ Strange thing to say, ’99 percent.’ You’re either leaving or not leaving. I’m hoping she’s not leaving.”

Lythgoe is involved in his own negotiations to return to the show and insiders expect he’ll stay on board. Despite some reports to the contrary, veteran judge Randy Jackson (who, as it so happens, is Carey’s manager and was involved in her negotiations) is now expected to stay on board, though nothing has yet been announced. Either way, Fox is expected to now focus on its search for another male judge.

dark horse (and attractively low budget) candidate is former American Idol contestant Adam Lambert. Fox’s decision to shake up Idol was effectively made months ago. In recent years, changing Idol‘s panel has typically resulted in a ratings spike, at least at the start of the season. For this year’s 11th season, Fox decided to leave the panel unchanged from the previous year and the series suffered the largest ratings drop in the show’s history.

Though the show’s audience was still huge, averaging 18 million viewers per week, ratings were down 23 percent. What do you think? Will Mariah Carey improve Idol‘s ratings?

Chris Brown Tweets He's On A Boat.... Rihanna Has Been On One A Week! Hmmmmm.......

Instagram photo: [Chris and Ludacris off the helicopter] 

Have Rihanna and Chris Brown officially reunited?  Rihanna has been vacationing on a yacht with friends for a week. She also tweeted on Friday the following;
Sorry, no phone service in the middle of the ocean! Just Internet! Call you back when I got signal boo! Miss ya.”
Well just awhile ago, Chris Brown, who reportedly broke up with his girlfriend Karrueche Tran recently, tweeted a pic and also tweeted:
Landed on the boat
But wait... some folks say Drake was on Rihanna's yacht last week. At this point Chris nor Rihanna are saying that Chris is specifically on her boat, but signs are pointing that way. Maybe, maybe not.


So who has Rihanna chosen? Drake, Chris Brown or neither? The saga continues.......... Me thinks Chris. LOL

Not long after Chris' tweet, Rihanna tweeted the following in two separate tweets:

  Touch down baby, help me pick out my fit

Michael Fassbender And Charlize Theron Get Sleazy In "W" Magazine!


"Prometheus" co-stars Michael Fassbender and Charlize Theron team up again for the cover "W" Magazine.



Via NY Post:

In the shoot by Mario Sorrenti, the pair pose in various leather-clad, S&M-like scenarios, including one shot where Fassbender hangs upside-down in leather pants and acrobatically grasps Theron, who’s facing the other way in a chain mail dress and long leather gloves.

In another shot, Theron wears a leathery leotard, fishnet stockings and high heels, and shoves her hand into the shirtless actor’s pants.


Cover story and interview from the August 2012 edition of "W".

Via W Magazine:

In Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, Charlize Theron and Michael Fassbender play siblings of the future: Fassbender is a highly advanced robot named David, a kind of favorite son to the father of Theron’s character, ­Meredith Vickers.

While Vickers overcompensates for her insecurities by being bossy, David is smooth and brilliantly manipulative. Their rivalry reveals each other’s central flaw—Vickers is too ­emotional and David too cerebral—but they share the goal of supremacy on their own terms. This essentially human conflict between the heart and the head underscores the larger themes of the film: science versus religion; reason versus emotion; the enticement of the unknown versus the evil that lurks within. Add a great many scary creatures that resemble a mash-up of male and female genitals and you have a grand existential battle amid all the sci-fi gore.

When not in character, though, Fassbender and Theron are anything but combative. Their friendship began at the rehearsals for Prometheus last year and grew during filming and throughout the awards season, when both were robbed by the Academy for their work in previous films: Fassbender’s haunting performance in Shame and Theron’s fascinating work in Young Adult were, apparently, too dark and complicated for the Oscars. “I would like to see a romantic comedy between those two characters,” Theron said at our shoot, which took place at an abandoned factory in Red Hook, Brooklyn.

Although she was joking, Theron may be on to something—she and Fassbender have a natural chemistry that could make them the next great screen couple. They may not be romantically involved in real life, but they jab, they admire, they spark in ways that could seduce the world.

Michael, what was the first Charlize Theron movie you ever saw? 

Michael Fassbender: The Devil’s Advocate. I knew nothing about it before I went, and during the movie I thought, Well, who’s this person? I had no idea what the movie was about.

Charlize Theron: Neither did I [laughs]. That was so long ago.

MF: And then you went on to win an Oscar. The rest is history.

Charlize, what was your first Fassbender movie? 

CT: Hunger. A friend said, “You have to see this movie. It’s the best thing I’ve seen in my entire life.” I thought, Just chill out, okay? But I was absolutely blown away by it. It was, like, all bets are off from now on. This is the guy.

Michael, your parents saw Hunger at Cannes. In the film, you play the IRA activist Bobby Sands, who fasted in protest of the conflict in Ireland. He starved to death. Did your mother have trouble watching you die?

MF: Surprisingly, no [laughs]. I try to die in most films I do. In 300 I was killed by arrows. In Inglourious Basterds I got my testicles blown off through my ass.

CT: That was a great death.

MF: I had two exit wounds sewn into my pants: one on each butt cheek. It was a great death.

What’s harder to do? A death scene or a sex scene? 

CT: It depends on who you’re doing the sex scene with. I don’t have issues being naked [pauses]. That sounds very slutty.

MF: Kind of. I didn’t want to say anything, but yes.

CT: What I mean is, I’m not hung up on my body, and I’ve been lucky to work with people I’ve been really comfortable with. I’ve had maybe two occasions where…

 MF: It’s been uncomfortable.

CT: And Michael’s one of the two who did not make me feel very comfortable [laughter].

MF: I was a robot! Did you base David, the robot, on anyone?

MF: At first I was thinking about the Alien films, or Blade Runner—those robots were very human. I decided to make him more robotlike but with human elements within. I looked for inspiration in David Bowie and Greg Louganis.

The Olympic diver? 

MF: Yeah—for the physicality. When you read a script, certain images or names pop up, and for some reason, Greg Louganis came up. I knew I wanted to have good posture and a sort of economy of movement. It was the way Louganis walked to the edge of the diving board—I always thought it was mesmerizing.

Do you know how to dive? 

MF: When I was out of work as an actor, I would give myself little challenges, and diving was one of them.

How old were you? 

MF: This was when I was 23. I trained for a while and finally got the courage to go up the stairs to the high board. I was at the top, and I was standing there for ages, shivering. A kid who was 10 or 11 came over to me and said, “The first time you jump off, you’re going to get hurt a little bit, but it won’t be as bad as you think.”

CT: Listen to the children!

MF: I took his advice, but I didn’t fully commit. I hurt my leg. There’s a great lesson there: Commit or else.

Speaking of which, Michael, you still haven’t said whether you think sex scenes are harder to do than death scenes…

MF: I don’t know. Sex scenes sound like more fun than they are. Death scenes are easier, really. Maybe because I’ve died so many times. I’ve had a lot of practice. In my movies, I’m often naked or dying.

Now that you’ve made this science fiction film, with its very dark view of space, do you have any longing to go to the moon or explore any other intergalactic frontiers? 

CT: If space is not the world of Ridley Scott, I’d go. When I watched Prometheus at a screening, I got so scared, I elbowed the metal chair next to me. I still have a little scar from it.

And you knew what was going to happen.

CT: That says a lot about how pathetic I am. I don’t think I’m made of the right stuff for space.

What about you, Michael?

MF: If I had a chance to go into space, I’d definitely take it, but it’s never been a priority for me.

CT: The diving board is better. MF: Yes—I know what it is to dive into nothing.

[SEND PRAYERS] Sad & Devastating News: Tameka Raymond's Son Passes - Rest In Peace Kile.


After being hit by a Jet Ski a couple of weeks ago, Tameka Raymond's 11-year-old son Kile Glover was severely injured, and was placed on life support.

Doctors have removed Kile Glover from life support and he passed due to his injuries.

Doctors told Tameka he would not recover from his injuries. My heart goes out to the family and sending prayers and condolences to Tameka, Kile's biological Father, their entire family and Usher, who was Kile's Step-Father.

 Via Sister 2 Sister:
Kyle Glover, Usher’s 11-year-old stepson, who was injured in a jet-ski accident earlier this month, has died after doctors removed him from life support. Tameka Raymond, the boy’s mother, is said to have agonized over the decision and is “understandably devastated” by her son’s untimely death, TMZ reports. Doctors removed the life-sustaining equipment after determining that Kyle’s injuries were too severe for a recovery. The child was struck by a jet ski, reportedly operated by family friend Jeffrey Hobbard, while in an inner-tube on Lake Lanier in Georgia. The accident is still under investigation, according to the Daily Mail. Tameka continually asked for prayers during Kyle’s hospitalization and refuted recent rumors that her insurance would not allow Kyle to remain on life support for very long. “We firmly believe in the power of prayer and ask that you all continue to pray and lift Kyle up, as it's the best way we can all support him now,” Kyle’s family said in a statement to CNN last week. Although Usher and Tameka were in the midst of a highly-publicized custody battle in weeks leading up to the accident, the two put their differences aside during Kyle’s crisis. Usher and Tameka have two sons together: Usher Raymond V and Naviyd Ely Raymond. Tameka’s older sons are the product of a previous relationship. Kyle’s biological father is Ryan Glover.

"After Earth" Starring [Will Smith, Jaden Smith] Website Launches & Teaser Trailer Released, In Theaters 6.7.13!

Check out new information and a teaser trailer for Will Smith's upcoming Sci-fi film "After Earth", which also stars his son Jaden Smith. Deets below. Via Examiner:
A teaser trailer for the upcoming M. Night Shyamalan science fiction film "After Earth" has been released at the film's official website. The video shows viewers the history of the film's fictional universe. After Earth stars real-life father and son Will Smith and Jaden Smith, 14, as General Cypher Raige and his 13-year-old son, Kitai. The film is described as follows by Wikipedia: "One thousand years after cataclysmic events forced humanity's escape from Earth. Nova Prime has become mankind's new home. Legendary General Cypher Raige returns from an extended tour of duty to his estranged family, ready to be a father to his 13-year-old son, Kitai. When an asteroid storm damages Cypher and Kitai's craft, they crash-land on a now unfamiliar and dangerous Earth. As his father lies dying in the cockpit, Kitai must trek across the hostile terrain to recover their rescue beacon. His whole life, Kitai has wanted nothing more than to be a soldier like his father. Today, he gets his chance." Jaden's "debut" in movies was a cameo in "Men in Black II." He also co-starred with his father, again as his on-film son, in the movie "The Pursuit of Happyness." The video shows the history of the world, but also of the family, which was first surnamed Radoslav and later changed its name to Raige. The video continues through human history, including a meeting between President Kennedy and a Raige family member over nuclear proliferation. Eventually, we are shown how the Raige family led the evacuation of humanity from a burnt-out husk named Earth.
"After Earth" is scheduled for a June 7, 2013 release in the U.S. Visit the AFTER EARTH website: www.AfterEarth.Com

A Chocolate Chick Special Edition: Part 2: Celebrity White Men Who Have Dated And/Or Married Women Of Color -

ir30-2 photo ir30-2.jpg
[Pic: Ivan Sergei]

To date the most popular and most read post on this blog has been the special edition entry titled Influential White Men Who Aren't Afraid To Date And/Or Marry Black Women.

Pretty much all the "BW/WM interracial" entries on this blog are wildly popular.

Well here's the second installment of the above mentioned special edition series here on "The Chocolate Chick".... because you know mainstream media won't tell you ish about celebrity non-black men dating women of color.

They IGNORE them, unless they have no choice but to report on it because of the immense popularity of the white male celebrity in question who happens to reveal who his girlfriend is and the said girlfriend is black. [Gotta luv Michael Fassbender]

The same does not apply in entertainment media when it comes to Black Men/White Women couples. Betcha you know the newest white chick on Tiger Woods arm (hell the media even interviewed the Waffle House worker and white waitresses he screwed on his wife with).

You see the pictures of black athletes with their white wives, girlfriends even jumpoffs make it to mainstream media, you definitely know what new black man has been inducted into the Kardashian family hall of fame, what "other" date mate Derek Jeter is with, what new white woman Seal will knock up oops I mean wife up next, seen random pics of Michael Jordan's "fiance" who doesn't do ANYTHING (I'm so surprised an announcement of a bundle of joy has not been announced yet... oh she planning for those security blankets just like Elin did.. yeah I said it... Hey... sarcasm people.. sarcasm] Only joking.

Heck no one can blame Elin from running like hell from Tiger, I mean the tricks just kept falling out the tree after Tiger hit the one on his property the night he was fleeing his home when Elin was attacking his ass for cheating, dang... I mean when he was leaving his home calmly barefoot in the middle of the night and accidentally hit a tree and through all of that, twenty women and not one black, biracial, quadroon or even remotely an exotical... no color at all fell out of it. Talk about having a type. Tiger took it to a different level. LOL

Not only that, but he liked cheap and trashy women. Yes indeedy.... Elin needed to get the hell away from that. Tiger sure didn't need to be married. Chile!!!

*Taking a sip of tea* Not throwing shade just pointing out the obvious.  In addition, no need to get all offended.  It's satire.  If you are offended easily.... oh wells.

In addition, as stated here before. I do NOT have a problem with interracial dating, however there should be a fair balance in the reporting of these couples in the extremely popular subject of entertainment news and gossip. IJS

Anywho. here's part 2:

[Disclaimer: The couples listed have either dated previously or are currently together. In addition not all couples had idyllic relationships, some were f'd up to say the least]

Matthew McConaughey & Janet Jackson

Janet and Matthew dated after meeting at an awards show.  Matthew also date black actress Salli Richardson.  Matthew  is now married and expecting his third child with his wife Camila Alves, who is black and from Brazil.

Justin Timberlake & Janet Jackson


It was well known that Janet and Justin dated, even though they wanted to keep it private.  I also remember a performance Janet did at the MTV awards show of the song "Doesn't Really Matter".  Right after that performance, the camera panned to Justin Timberlake and he and Janet exchanged looks.  Found the performance on YT, but the vid ends right at the end of the performance.  I have that awards show on VHS to this day.  I saved some of my VHS collection. Whoa VHS.... talk about back in the day. LOL

Justin Timberlake's new squeeze is an older woman — Janet Jackson.

Maybe it's just a fling, but the 'N Sync heartthrob, 21, has been seeing the diva, 36, for a while. The pair went public last weekend at a Miami Beach birthday party for rapper Missy Elliott, where Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire were among the celeb guests.

They also were spotted two weeks ago at an L.A. club. The New York Post reported that rapper Jermaine Dupri, who the paper said was dating Jackson, was unhappy to see them. But Dupri says he heard about it second-hand and he and Jackson are just friends.

No comment on the matchup from a rep for Timberlake, who split from Britney Spears in March and is busy making his solo album. And none on Jackson from her reps.

Justin Timberlake and Nsync honored Janet at MTV's ICON Show:

 Justin Timberlake & Tatyana Ali



Source: Popdirt 2003 - However this story was everywhere at the time.

Fresh Love For Justin Timberlake & Tatyana Ali

The Enquirer spoke with a close pal of Tatyana Ali about the actress/singer dating *NSYNC star Justin Timberlake. “Tatyana thinks Justin is a very kind man who is sexy and funny,” the pal said. “Their romance is passionate."

Meanwhile, a pal of Timberlake’s said the singer is dazed by the Harvard educated Ali because she’s smart and beautiful. “Justin says Tatyana is like a breath of fresh air in his life,” the pal said. “He says she’s not pretentious and not out to prove anything to anyone.”

Jawn’s Juice reports *NSYNC star Justin Timberlake was spotted getting cozy and cuddly at a Hollywood hotspot The Lounge with former ‘Fresh Prince of Bel Air’ star Tatyana Ali.

An insider tells The Mirror that Tatyana Ali is just the woman Justin Timberlake needs to calm down the wild *NSYNC star. “Justin and Tatyana do make a bit of an unlikely couple but they’re definitely having a passionate time together,” the insider says.

“They’ve been hanging out at all the well-known Hollywood nightspots and are obviously not concerned about being spotted canoodling in public. Tatyana is well aware of his reputation and she obviously thinks she can tame him.”

Johnny Depp & Holly Robinson

During their run as co-stars on the hit show "21 Jump Street" [That was the show back in the day!] Holly and Johnny dated for a couple of years.



Jason Patric & Holly Robinson

I swear this picture does not do Jason any justice.  The man was FINE back in the day! Pull up some of his old movies. (Lost Boys, Sleeper, Narc)


Brad Pitt & Robin Givens


Robin Givens and Brad Pitt dated for awhile right after he breakup with Mike Tyson. Word is Robin and Brad broke up because of Mike Tyson's possessiveness, even though he and Robin had ended their marriage. A few years ago, Robin Givens revealed in an interview that she didn't find anything fascinating about Brad Pitt. Well dayum. robingivensbradpitt1-1 bradpittrobingivens1-1 bradrobin2-1

Colin Farrell & Nicole Narain

The two dated back in 2003 for almost 2 years. A year or so later a sex tape surfaced online of them together. Colin sued, and they settled out of court. Colin blamed Narain for the leak, she denied his allegations.


Brad Pitt & Sinitta

Brad Pitt dated Simon Cowell's ex Sinitta. However their relationship that lasted a few years ended due to the two being in two different countries.


Robert DeNiro & Naomi Campbell

Luke Goss & Current Wife Shirley

Luke Goss is an popular actor, most recent film is "Seven Below" with Ving Rhames.  He is about to star in a network show this fall.  His twin brother is Matt Goss, a popular singer head lining a show in Las Vegas.  The two used to be in a UK band called "Bros".  Luke's wife Shirley is a singer as well.

Chris Evans and Naomie Harris

Chris Evans seems to date women of color every once in awhile. He recently stated in an interview during promotion for "The Avengers" that he likes a "big ass". Well ain't that a romantic thing to say for a grown azz man... NOT!!!

He attempted to hit on Gabriel Union back in 2009 at a club, at the time of course Gabriel Union was in a relationship with her current boyfriend Miami Heat baller Dwayne Wade so she definitely wasn't interested. Photobucket

 Via NY Daily News: [2009]
Chris Evans may be super-hot, but not enough to sway Gabrielle Union from her basketball-star boyfriend. According to a spy, Union - who dates Miami Heat hoopster Dwyane Wade - was sharing a dance with the "Fantastic Four" star at Tantra Nightclub & Sanctuary on St. Maarten when, suddenly, he started kissing her face, heading toward her lips. "Gabrielle laughed, but she clearly wasn't into it," says the eyewitness. After a few attempts at a liplock, Evans turned his attention to Union's pal.
Chris also dated Vida Guerra, who is of Cuban ancestry. chrisevansandvida-1

Orlando Bloom & Naomie Harris

Orlando Bloom dated his "Pirates Of The Caribbean" co-star Naomie Harris back in 2007.


Leonardo DiCaprio -

Leo & Kidada Jones, Leo & Naomi Campbell, Leo & Mariah Carey & a plethora of other black women the MEDIA would never report about. [Now a lil bit more has to be revealed on Mr. DiCaprio. Some say Leonardo "hides" his black girlfriends. LOL... Hmmmmm maybe.. if so, that's pathetic but perhaps it's just that the MEDIA refuses to print when Leo is with a black woman. As far as the "media" is concerned Leo prefers and ONLY dates blonde models. [Giselle Bunchen, Bar Raefeli, Blake Lively, etc] Keep thinking that.

Leonardo Dicaprio & Mariah Carey ir27-1 Leo and Mariah dated, though not long term, the two did date briefly. ir28-1 [Source 1 Link: http://www.ranker.com/list/leonardo-dicaprio_s-loves-and-hookups/celebrityhookups?page=1] [Source Link 2:http://www.whosdatedwho.com/tpx_1741587/leonardo-dicaprio-and-mariah-carey/]

Leo and Naomi's relationship ended many years ago, but they have remained very good friends.

 Leonardo DiCaprio & Woman who slashed his face


Interesting to note.... In 2005 a woman of color hit Leo with a broken glass bottle at a party. It required stiches and Leo reported the incident 3 days later. Some speculate that the woman was a "hookup" at the time or a possible ex of Leo. Leo denied knowing her and pressed charges. The woman claimed she thought Leo was an ex-boyfriend. [Blank Stare] Chile!!! Via Wiki: In 2005 DiCaprio's face was seriously injured when Aretha Wilson, a model, hit him over the head with a broken bottle at a Hollywood party. After pleading guilty in 2010, Wilson was sentenced to prison for two years.


[2010] - Vid of Leo leaving a club with Usher. However Usher is already in the car. The paps catch Leo walking to the car with a black woman. [At first, thought it was Vivica Fox because the pap asked about "Dancing With The Stars", couldn't confirm by the vid]

Leo is hiding under his ball cap as usual and they are trying to act like they aren't together. It's obvious they are "together". If it's true that he's scurred about dating black women publicly due to fear of backlash from certain fans that's pathetic as stated previously. [The Jury is still out on that, don't believe he is ashamed, it seems more just about privacy and he always wears a cap when he knows paparazzi is around. Now while he looks awkward trying to hide his face, still think it has more to do with privacy.

But the hilarious part is Usher at the end of the vid.

To also note... Leo adopted a little African girl after meeting her in South Africa during the filming of "Blood Diamond" in 2006. He didn't adopt her in the traditional sense, he provides for her financially, visits her when he can and constantly checks in on her.

Halle and Kevin dated after his divorce from his first wife in 1994. Other sources say the two also had a brief fling back in 1989, while Kevin was married. The alleged affair in 1989 has never been proven. But the two did date after the divorce from his first wife.

Prince Albert & Ex Nicole Coste, Mother of his son Alexandere


Rumors were running rampant that Nicole Coste was pregnant again by Prince Albert now ruler of Monaco around the time he was about to marry his now wife South African native Charlene Whitstock, however it was never confirmed that Coste was even preggars at all. The drama surrounding Prince Albert's wedding [before and after ] to Charlene Whitstock, who is a white South African deserves it's own post. [Check the Chocolate Chick archives for the wedding details]


It is wildly speculated that Prince Albert was in love with Coste who is also the Mother to his only son. The two dated for four years and rumors are the two were still hitting the sheets while Prince Albert was seeing Whitstock, preparing to marry her. Btw... Some wondered why Prince Albert didn't marry Coste. Perhaps their relationship ended and there was no desire from either to marry one another. Even though they were continuing their physical relationship. Some think that folks were NOT going to accept Prince Albert marrying a black woman, even if she was the Mother of his son. I don't know about that one, Monaco is not so in your face with racism as it is in America. Prince Albert seemed to do as he pleased. Photobucket Photobucket Now looking at the pics of Prince Albert with Nicole Coste, he looks very happy. Compare those pics with ones of his current wife Charlene Whitstock, who tried to flee Monaco days before the wedding and her passport was confiscated, rumors were that Charlene was blindsided by allegations that Prince Albert has possibly fathered other children and he was reportedly still seeing Nicole Coste, ironically Coste was spotted in the area on the day Prince Albert married Charlene Whitstock.Charlene looked miserable on her wedding day and at one point broke down crying and Prince Albert DID NOT LOOK PLEASED. It was very difficult to watch.I don't know what they did to convince her to stay and go through with the wedding but it appears that this marriage could perhaps mirror the Princess Diana/Prince Charles/Camilla triangle. Now you have Princess Charlene/Prince Albert/Nicole Coste. Posting for content purposes only: Video Of Princess Charlene Of Monaco crying on her wedding day, [Some think, including the Youtuber based on their comments feel Charlene was crying from the emotional song.... Ummmm I think NOT!]Prince Albert doesn't look sympathetic to her plight, further giving credence to the fact that major drama went down before the wedding:

It's rumored that Prince Albert purchased a mansion just miles from his palace for Nicole Coste and their son. I'm sure his wife Princess Charlene is NOT happy with that. He can dip in and out whenever he wants. Chile!!! Run gurl... Run!!! IJS. With all that being said, it seems that they are in this marriage for the long haul, they seem to be better together now.In addition, Prince Albert needs an heir. His black son cannot be in line to rule Monaco because he is illegitimate and laws were changed just a few years ago to make sure that would not happen. Photobucket \

 Kid Rock has a Black Baby Mama


Kid Rock had a tumultuous relationship with an ex-girlfriend from way back when he was a teenager. A lot of drama was involved with a plethora of make ups and break-ups. Kid Rock and his baby mama agreed to let him have full custody and he raised his son as a single father. Today his son, Bobby Richie Jr. is 19yrs old and resides with him at his home in Michigan.

Anndddd another song.... Kid Rock wrote a song about the relationship with his baby mama. Very toxic relationship, but it seemed to be some love there.... I think. They were extremely young.

 Prince Harry Dates Women Of Color?


Royal gossipers have long reported that Prince Harry who is quite the ladies man has indeed dated a few women of color. As stated recently by Prince Harry he is in no rush to marry, he is enjoying the single life.


Interestingly enough, rumors ran rampant for years that Prince Charles dated Sheila Ferguson from the group "The Three Degree" back in the 70's. It's fact that he was a major fan of the group and invited them to perform at the palace for his 30th birthday party. Back then the British press even nicknamed them Charlie's Angels.

Pic Above:

The Three Degrees and Prince Charles. While it's true Prince Charles was very interested in the singer, even pursued and woo'd her....

In 2005 after all those years had passed, Sheila Ferguson set the record straight. She said that yes Prince Charles who was one of the richest most eligible bachelors at the time was wanting her, she refused his advances because she wasn't attracted to him.

[LMFAO - IKTR!!!!]

Prince Charles is NOT and never has been an attractive man. He and horse face Camilla deserve each other after the hell they put the late Princess Diana through.

Deets below:

Via Contact Music [2005]:
THREE DEGREES star SHEILA FERGUSON has finally scotched persistent rumors she was romantically involved with British Royal PRINCE CHARLES when he was an eligible bachelor. The WHEN WILL I SEE YOU AGAIN singer rebuffed amorous advances from the PRINCE OF WALES after performing at his 30th birthday party in November 1978, because she wasn't attracted to him. The 57-year-old says, "I want to set the record straight. I have never slept with Prince Charles. It's always been an issue in my life because people believe it. "He tried to chat me up but I rejected him because I didn't want to be another notch on his bedpost. He was one of the most eligible bachelors in the world but, watch my lips, I didn't fancy him."
So much was made of the rumored affair or rather Prince Charles' affection for one of the singers that it was a scene in the movie "Charles & Camilla" that featured when "The Three Degrees" attended his 30th birthday party. The scene speaks volumes.

Prince Charles' Mother, Queen Elizabeth ll has a 2nd cousin named Hon. James Edward Lascelles who is married to Joy Elias-Rilwan. They were married in 1999 and are still together.

Peter Lawford & Dorothy Dandridge

Photobucket Photobucket

Peter Lawford was a very popular actor, he married into the Kennedy family when he wed John F. Kennedy's sister Patricia Kennedy. However prior to Patricia, Lawford was in love with Dorothy Dandridge and folks say she was the love of his life.

Due to the obvious racism during those days, the two ended their relationship to protect their careers. When Dandridge died, Peter Lawford was so overcome with grief he could not give the scheduled eulogy.

 Via Bright Boulevards, Bold Dreams, by Donald Bogle
In the 1950’s, Dorothy Dandridge was one of the few African-American women in this country to travel to Europe to view fashion collections. She dazzled the international jet set and billionaire Greek tycoon; Aristole Onassis couldn’t take his eyes off her.

Back in the states, a young British actor was in love with her. Actor Peter Lawford (pictured above) was married to one of the Kennedy sisters but before the marriage, he only had eyes for Dorothy Dandridge, some say, she was the true love of his life. One evening, they almost went public with their relationship up until the last minute when they decided-it would be a bad career move for both of them. They arrived at a Cole Porter party separately. When Dorothy walked in, every man in the room (including Richard Burton and William Holden) couldn’t keep their eyes off her.

Peter Lawford found her irresistible. Lawford was far more taken with her than she was with him. He even told her, he loved her. At Dandridge’s funeral, Lawford was so devastated by grief; he was unable to deliver the eulogy.

Aristotle Onassis & Dorothy Dandridge Dorothy had a long-term affair with Greek billionaire Aristotle Onassis. Years later, Onassis married Jackie Kennedy.

I have shown all aspects in this post as well as in Part One of this series.

[Link to Part One is near the top of the page, on the right, under 'Popular Post', just click on the wording beneath, it will link you to Part one.]
