She’s been working overtime on getting in shape and reclaiming her public sanity, so it only makes sense that Britney Spears would treat herself to a relaxing weekend in Las Vegas.
The “Piece of Me” songstress was spotted cooling off at the pool outside of her hotel, looking playful in a pink and orange psychedelic-patterned bikini.
According to sources, Brit is in Sin City to treat her father Jamie Spears to an extended Fathers’ Day weekend, having flown into town yesterday after visiting with her kids at her home in Studio City, California.
After all, Jamie has been the solid rock foundation that the “Gimme More” singer has been relying on as of late. He’s taken over her financial and personal affairs, giving Britney the ability to focus on getting herself healthy again. If not for Jamie, we may still be seeing the likes of Adnan Ghalib… or worse- Sam Lutfi!
They’ve been flying below the gossip radar as of late, but yesterday Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z were spotted grabbing a bite to eat for lunch.
The “99 Problems” rapper and his “Bootylicious” wife headed over to one of their top NYC West Village spots, Bar Pitti for some quality time and quality eats.
And the “Irreplaceable” hottie recently hit Forbes’ top 5 Celebrity list, coming in at #4. It seems she’s been scoring big points with ticket sales and merchandising.
Forbes wrote, “After ditching Destiny’s Child to go solo in 2003, the Houston native has released two platinum albums and built a wildly successful entertainment empire that includes fashion, film and publishing deals. She sold $50 million in tickets on a recent tour. Her endorsement contracts, with L’Oréal, American Express and others, bring in $10 million annually.”
They’ve been busily promoting their hit reality show in Monte Carlo, Monaco over the past few days, but that doesn’t mean that Kim Kardashian and sister Kourtney have gone without a little vacation-like relaxation.
Prior to their appearance at last night’s Golden Nymph Awards, the “Keeping Up with the Kardashian’s” co-star siblings were spotted having fun in the sun aboard a yacht - with Kim popping a bottle of champagne for her big sis.
The reality star sweethearts also made time for a dip in the pool at the Hotel Hermitage - showing off their fine forms as Kim wore a sexy fire engine red two-piece bikini while Kourtney chose a white two-piece swimsuit.
According to Kim’s personal blog, the day wasn’t all about waterside relaxation, as the pair also had brunch with Extra correspondent Terry Seymour, eating and filming at Cafe de Paris.
Somehow wiggling his way out of a conviction, a Cook County jury acquitted R&B superstar R. Kelly of child pornography charges on Friday afternoon (June 13).
The verdict marks the end of what has been a high-profile trial full of twists and turns - finally coming to what’s a fortunate close for the Freaky In the Club singer.
According to press an LA Times report, “the 41-year-old, whose real name is Robert Sylvester Kelly, long denied charges that he videotaped himself engaging in a variety of sex acts with his then-underage goddaughter. Authorities said the female in the video could have been as young as 13 at the time.”
Following recent closing arguments by both the defense and prosecutors, “a jury of nine men and three women deliberated for 7 ½ hours before finding Kelly not guilty on all 14 counts.”
