Enjoying a delicious end to her Tuesday, Kim Kardashian was spotted out to eat at the swanky, celebrity-popular restaurant Mr. Chow last night (March 31).
The “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” hottie looked absolutely beautiful in a shiny blue one-shoulder minidress teamed with a pair of black high-heels as she passed the paparazzi.
Earlier in the day, Kim was all about stimulating the sales ledger at her own store, purchasing several items at the Dash boutique in Calabasas.
Still needing more retail therapy, the “Disaster Movie” babe made her way to the Westfield Mall in Woodland Hills to spend some more cash.
She got a quick boost of star power when she won “Paris Hilton’s My New BFF,” but not it seems Brittany Flickinger is a thing of the past.
According to a report, Miss Hilton has kicked Brit to the curb after feeling like she was being used by the wannabe celebrity.
A source told press, “In fact, they haven’t spoken in two months. All that girl wanted was the free trips, the goodie bags, staying at Paris’ mansion and the parties and clubs.”
The insider continued, “She was desperate for money. She was another one of these girls using Paris to get famous. We’ve seen it happen a million times. In January at Sundance, Paris realized everything everyone was telling her was the truth.”
Despite having a bad experience the first time around, Paris is jumping back into the reality TV circle with a new season of “BFF” that she’s currently filming.
We’re used to seeing her up on stage, but last night (March 31) Amy Winehouse was content to rock out from the audience at a concert in London.
The “You Know I’m No Good” songstress was spotted hanging out at the Hard Rock Café where she enjoyed a concert from the band Bats for Lashes, sporting a cut on her leg and a bloodshot eye.
In related news, it seems Miss Winehouse may be getting even more help on her new album - Jay-Z is showing interest in coming alongside the troubled singer and helping her in the studio (Mark Ronson has also pledged support).
The “99 Problems” rapper told press, “Amy has a really powerful voice, it is so distinctive and beautiful. Hopefully in the future we could get together and work on some new material - I’d love to work with her again.”

He’s no stranger to a high-profile evening out, and last night Brody Jenner was spotted hitting up Hollywood hotspot Bar Delux.
The “Bromance” hunk was joined by a few friends as he arrived at the club, looking cool and casual in a black baseball cap, black shirt, distressed jeans, and black Converse All-Stars.
Also in the house was R&B singer Rihanna, who just may be showing some interest in Mr. Jenner after a telltale dinner out earlier this week.
On Wednesday night (March 25), Brody was reportedly the object of Rihanna’s affection as they were both spotted eating separately at Nobu restaurant.
According to an eyewitness, the “Take a Bow” songstress was “smiling and flirting” with a group of guys that included Jenner - although other insiders are reporting that it’s actually Brody’s pal, Frankie Delgado, who caught the Barbadian beauty’s eye.

Continuing along with her touring ways, Lady GaGa was busy performing at the House of Blues in Chicago, Illinois on Tuesday night (March 24).
“My name is Lady Gaga and I’ve got no money because I’ve spent it all on my show,” she told the crowd. “But tonight, Windy City, I feel beautiful and dirty rich.”
And it sounds as if the “Paparazzi” singer put on quite a show for the packed house, performing in a variety of outfits including scantily-clad leotards and a plastic bubble dress.
One of the show’s highlights was when GaGa showed off her skills during “an acoustic and showtunes-esque” rendition of her hit song “Poker Face” on a piano - with GaGa even using her feet to play the instrument throughout the hit tune.
Keeping up on her physical fitness, Stacy “Fergie” Ferguson was spotted out with her personal trainer in Los Angeles on Wednesday (March 25).
Though the Black Eyes Peas singer had been at her daily routine for an hour, she hadn’t even broken a sweat as she walked along while offering up a smile for paparazzi on-hand.
Nonetheless, Fergie has recently reached her goal of dropping 15 pounds which she gained for the movie “Nine,” which she worked on late last year.
“I’m finally back to the weight that I was before the film. It’s taken me forever!” the 34-year-old tells In Touch. “I have a trainer. I started doing it myself. I didn’t lose all of it for the wedding, but I fit into my dress, so I was happy. Now I’m just trying to sculpt and get ready for the tour, get my stamina up.”
Talking about her recently dyed brunette locks, Fergie adds, “I’ve never been a brunette. I’m married, I’m coming back with the Black Eyed Peas – I wanted to do something different.”

Coming up next month, Miley Cyrus’ new flick “Hannah Montana: The Movie” will make its way into theaters. And in a recent interview, the 16-year-old explained that the film isn’t her swan song with the Disney character.
Miley told press, “This movie was never meant to be the end of Hannah Montana. The thing is, a lot of people put where the show’s future lays in my hands — and it’s not up to me. It’s up to Disney and whether they want more episodes, and we hope that they do.”
But facing reality, Miss Cyrus has come to terms with the fact that her “Hannah” days may be coming to a close. “It’s just an honor for people to be able to relate to me and my music — and not so much the character anymore. I can’t be Hannah Montana forever. I have to have something after this. I can’t do this when I’m 30.”
And not filming the show has given Miley a chance to reconnect with her personal life. “It’s, like, the first time I’ve seen all my friends in seven months. It’s hard, man. With all the stuff that goes on with this business, I only want to do something if I absolutely love it.”
He’s been dealing with his own battle with pancreatic cancer, but when Natasha Richardson passed away unexpectedly last week, Patrick Swayze was stunned.
The “Dirty Dancing” stud worked with the late actress in the film “Waking Up in Reno” and gave a heartfelt statement to press regarding her passing.
He said, “It is such a great loss to this community to lose an actress and person such as Natasha. Gifts like her don’t come along very often. It’s a rare thing in this industry to have someone with so much talent, beauty, and dedication and yet is imbued with such humility.”
Swayze continued, “I know for me and many other people, the world will be a different place without her. My heart goes out to Liam [Neeson, her husband] and his two boys, but I’m sure that Natasha’s light is shining down on them.”
Keeping their romance in high gear, Paris Hilton and boyfriend Doug Reinhardt were spotted spending the day side-by-side in Los Angeles on Monday afternoon (March 23).
The publicity-loving couple first grabbed up a bite to eat at the popular Chinese restaurant Chin Chin before heading over to the Hollywood Lucky Strike bowling alley at Hollywood and Highland.
And though their relationship is still in its early phase, rumors are already swirling about a possible upcoming engagement.
Of the situation, an insider told the tabloids, “Doug is smitten with Paris and wants to spend the rest of his life with her. He’s already found the perfect ring, asked her father for permission and is now waiting for the right time to pop the question.”
Continuing her romp around the globe, Bridget Marquardt was back out for more filming of her new reality show “Bridget’s Sexiest Beaches” on Monday afternoon (March 23).
The former “Girls Next Door” star hopped into a figure-revealing black swimsuit as she playfully posed for the cameras while lounging next to the pool.
Not far removed from the show’s debut, “Bridget’s Sexiest Beaches” is back this Thursday (March 26) with a brand new episode from Jamaica at 10pm on the Travel Channel.
Aside from her show, Miss Marquardt is enjoying a brand new relationship following her split with Hugh Hefner, as she’s now dating Nicholas Carpenter.
While there have been rumors of a possible wedding, Bridget denied the claims, telling, “No, not engaged – not even talking about that kind of stuff! I’m happy just to be dating and I think things are perfect as they are.”

She’s a happily married woman as of this past Saturday, and from the looks of it Natasha Bedingfield had a picture-perfect wedding.
The “Pocketful of Sunshine” songstress was a beautiful blushing bride in a strapless cream silk Vera Wang dress with a massive train and an elegant veil as she said “I Do” with businessman hubby Matt Robinson.
The two lovebirds tied the knot at the Church Estates Vineyards in Malibu, California (the same place Fergie and Josh Duhamel got hitched), and according to Bedingfield it was nothing short of amazing.
She told press, “Our wedding day was everything we’d hope it would be. It was simple, beautiful and natural. Free from trappings or formalities, it was more about expressing our love for one another in front of those we hold dearest to us than anything else.”
Natasha continued, “We are now very much looking forward to spending the rest of our lives together. Love is hard to find, so when you do find it, hang on to it!”

While her lack of money and unemployment woes are said to be causing all kinds of stress, Lindsay Lohan was spotted sneaking into her rehab program in Glendale, California on Monday (March 23).
The “Mean Girls” starlet did her best to avoid eye contact with awaiting paparazzi, heading into the building’s parking garage entrance for another session at the Right On program.
As for her career, rumors tell that Miss Lohan may be focusing more on modeling following her recent Fornarina campaign and absence of movie offers.
Talking about the lack of work, LiLo said, “It’s scary when you realize, ‘Oh my God, I’m not working. And I have a house to pay for now.’... and there’s been some things I’ve really wanted to do.”
Though we haven’t seen much of her first season’s BFF Brittany Flickinger, Paris Hilton is back on the prowl for a new guy or girl to fulfill the role of ‘bestie.’
The “Simple Life” starlet was spotted filming an episode for a new season of “Paris Hilton: My New BFF” on 3rd Street in Hollywood, California yesterday afternoon (March 22).
And it sounds like Miss Hilton is also thinking of motherhood currently, with reports telling that she has toned down her partying lifestyle in preparation for getting pregnant.
A source revealed that Paris is keeping all of her best dresses for her future daughters, and that she’s ready to settle down with boyfriend Doug Reinhardt. “Paris thinks Doug is handsome, generous and fun to be with.”
Looking as if she’s not going to accept the help after all, Nadya Suleman has reportedly fired the free nursing staff offered up by Angels In Waiting.
Spotted out earlier today (March 23) meeting with her realtor, Miss Suleman told RadarOnline that she plans to use her own nannies that were already lined-up prior to the offer for free care.
Of the announcement made by Nadya, lawyer Gloria Allred told press: “We have no comment at this time. We will respond tomorrow afternoon with the true facts.”
Meanwhile, those associated with Angels in Waiting are lined up for an appearance on Dr. Phil tomorrow, with Octomom also hoping to squeeze onto the guest list so that she can defend her decision to snub the cost-free helping hands.

Venturing out on the town, Lindsay Lohan was spotted hanging out with a mystery male last night (March 19) in Los Angeles.
The “Georgia Rule” cutie was picked up from SamRo’s house by a guy driving a silver Porsche and driven to a private event before hitting up Villa Lounge.
After heading inside, Miss Lohan later met back up with girlfriend, Samantha Ronson, as the two left Villa in Miss Ronson’s car before heading home.
In related news, LiLo paid a touching tribute to her “Parent Trap” costar Natasha Richardson, so passed away Wednesday after suffering a head injury while skiing.
Lindsay told press, “She was a wonderful woman and actress and treated me like I was her own. I didn’t see much of her over the years but I will miss her. My heart goes out to her family. This is a tragic loss.”
They’ve been through quite a few ups and downs as of late, and here’s another possible down for them to add to the list – it is being reported that Rihanna and Chris Brown have a sex tape.
The “Disturbia” songstress has been seen out partying without her “bad tempered” boyfriend and apparently now finds herself worried that Brown will release their tape out of anger that they’re not back together.
A source says, “Rihanna has no issues with her sexuality. But she’d be mortified if her friends and family found this out! This whole beating incident is terribly humiliating for her.”
The insider added, “She’s already traumatized and will do anything to make it all go away as quickly as possible. The last thing in the world Rihanna wants is to see herself in the sex videos all over the Internet! She’s an intensely private person.”

One of my favorite finds is the new Caress Evenly Gorgeous body wash - it has karite butter and burnt brown sugar ... it makes my skin look and feel amazing. The Caress Skinwear Collection compliments my entire wardrobe and gives me beautiful skin right out of the shower.”
Facing the consequences of his actions, Kanye West has managed to rack up three misdemeanor charges from his run-in with paparazzi at Los Angeles International Airport.
With the incident occurring this past September, the 31-year-old hip-hop star was charged with vandalism, battery and grand theft, according to the DA’s office.
As a result, Kanye finds himself staring down a possible sentence of two and a half years in jail, while his road manager Don Crawley faces five years in the slammer.
At this time, West’s reps have not offered any comment, while an arraignment date has been set for April 14th.

In one shot, the “Disaster Movie” starlet poses on her man’s back while he does pushups, while in another pic they pose together against an Audi sportscar.
Of the experience, Kim blogged, “We were super excited for this shoot, but also a bit nervous. We had never done a shoot together and didn’t know what to expect!”

Talking about what she’d like to see in upcoming episodes of the hit reality show this season, Kendra adds, “I’m crossing my fingers that Dancing with the Stars makes them dance to some hip-hop this season because you know I’ll be in the dance studio with Holly and Dmitry teaching them some of my freaky moves hahaha!!!”

She arrived at the City of Westminster Magistrates Court this morning looking a bit crazed in a flowery dress. And according to Amy Winehouse, she’s innocent of the charges made against her.
The troubled “Rehab” songstress made the point that her name is Amy Jade Civil (her married name) before pleading not guilty to the common assault charge.
Winehouse is being accused of attacking Sherene Flash back in September of 2008 at a high society ball held in London’s Berkeley Square.
And though she claims she’s innocent, it stands to reason that there will be a fun-filled legal drama to ensue. Stay linked to the Gossip Girls for the latest in Amy’s courtroom antics.

As for the growing speculation that Lindsay Lohan is on the brink of yet another meltdown, Kim recently told press that it’s a shame that people won’t just leave her alone.
She commented, “It’s so sad that there’s such an invasion of privacy, with camera people, cops and paparazzi outside their home. I mean, when have you not thrown something when you’re mad? Everyone has to admit that at one time in their life, they’ve gotten so mad that they’ve thrown something, but maybe not necessarily breaking a window.”

Enjoying their Big Apple surroundings, Kim and Kourtney Kardashian were spotted leaving Via Dei Mille restaurant last night (March 15) following a swanky dinner with friends.

Born Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, the popular singer openly talked about her experience leaving her family shocked after going into stripping at 18.
The 22-year-old told News of the World, “I was working in strip clubs when I was 18. Girls from my background weren’t meant to turn into someone like me. I come from a wealthy Italian family, went to a good school.”
Continuing about her past, GaGa explained, “I went against all I was brought up to be; I moved out of home, wouldn’t take any help from my parents and supported myself with waitressing jobs and stripping.”
She also told of her experience feeling a sense a freedom with the act of stripping, although her parents felt very different about the situation.
“I discovered a real personal freedom through it. Obvisiously my parents didn’t like it. I was drawing huge crowds, setting hairspray alight on stage and dancing madly,” she explained.

Jumping back into an active social life after laying low for the past few weeks, Rihanna was spotted out grabbing dinner in New York City’s West Village on Saturday night (March 14).
With security staffers by her side, the “Umbrella” songstress headed into popular Italian eatery Da Silvano, dressed warmly for the chilly mid-March weather in the Big Apple
As previously reported by Gossip Girls, Rihanna spent the previous evening celebrating a belated birthday outing at The Spotted Pig.
Enjoying the company of friends, the Barbadian beauty was joined by Jay-Z, Beyonce and Brandy, along with a few other friends.
Hoping for a good Mother’s Day, Jade Goody’s spokesperson Max Clifford told People magazine that is seems it will not happen due to her “critical” condition.
Clifford reported, “She was hoping to be well enough to see the boys but at the moment she is in a very bad date, she is very unwell.”
Goody, 27, has two sons, Bobby, 5, and Freddie, 4. She appeared in the U.K.’s Big Brother television show and has been fighting cervical cancer while the press has kept close tabs upon her.
She was able to leave London’s Royal Marsden Hospital on Wednesday to spend her last final moments with her husband Jack Tweed, her mother and sons.
Although she wanted to spend time with her boys, Clifford said, “She saw the boys for a few hours on Wednesday but has been to unwell for another visit.”
At home in Upshire, nurses are trying very hard to control Goody’s pain. Clifford added, “The more sedated she is, the weaker she gets. It’s a very critical time.”
Very heavily sedated, Goody has been in and out of consciousness. “She is unconscious a lot of the time, almost in a coma-like state. She’s heavily sedated, so she comes round for maybe a few minutes, sometimes just a few seconds and she goes again. She seems to be aware that Jack and [her mother] Jackiey are here,” Clifford explained.
Goody was able to have a very special visitor at lunchtime. “A priest came to the house today to sit with her and they all said a few prayers together. It’s just a matter of when,” her spokesmen continued
As the drama continues to unfold, police were called to the Hollywood Hills residence of Lindsay Lohan on Saturday afternoon (March 14).
The police presence reportedly resulted after a window was smashed during a heated argument between LiLo and her DJ girlfriend Samantha Ronson, presumably over the warrant issued for Lindsay’s arrest regarding her past DUI incident.
According to a source on the scene, “The police knocked and knocked for twenty minutes but neither would open the door - although a short time later a friend arrived with McDonalds food for the two.”
Meanwhile, Lindsay’s lawyer has deemed the warrant stemming from a 2007 DUI as a “misunderstanding”.
“Since her case was resolved, Ms. Lohan has been in compliance with all the terms and conditions of her probation and all orders of the court,” Lohan’s lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, released in a statement. “The warrant issued on Friday was, in our view, born out of a misunderstanding which I am confident I can clear up next week.”
As for her position with the police, Beverly Hills Police Lt. Mark Rosen tells, “We are not actively looking for Ms. Lohan at this time We are not anticipating her surrender this weekend. But if she comes in contact with police, she’s subject to arrest. As for why we’re not actively looking for her, that’s not our procedure for this type of warrant. Her attorney is hoping to resolve this issue in the coming week. If it’s not resolved, I’m sure we’ll negotiate her voluntary surrender.”
Lindsay is expected to show up in court on Monday, as L.A. DA spokeswoman Sandi Gibbons tells: “The judge apparently has indicated that Ms. Lohan should be in attendance.”
Fresh off of their surprise nuptials last month, Gisele Bundchen has taken husband Tom Brady to meet her family in Brazil.
Just yesterday, the newlyweds arrived in Miss Bundchen’s hometown of Horizontina for a family meal to celebrate her grandfather’s 83rd birthday.
According to AP reports, “the occasion was a chance for Brady to meet family members, including Bundchen’s sisters, aunts and uncles.”
Following the birthday fete, Gisele reportedly planned to make her way to Sao Paulo for work, while her Patriots quarterback hubby was due to jet back to the States.

Though she had a warrant out for her arrest, that didn’t stop Lindsay Lohan from hitting the town of Friday (March 13).
After lunching in Beverly Hills, Miss Lohan went shopping at Gelson’s market - only to be escorted home by police, but for some reason not taken into custody.
Later on in the evening, Miss Lohan then headed off to Chateau Marmont, followed up by a trip to Jack Nicholson’s house.
Of the situation, the Beverly Hills Police Department released the following statement discussing the warrant resulting from Lohan’s 2007 DUI arrest:
“In response to media inquiries, [the] Beverly Hills Police Department is confirming a warrant was in fact issued today [March 13] for the arrest of Lindsay Lohan. The $50,000 warrant issued by the Beverly Hills Superior Court stems from a May 2007 arrest of Miss Lohan for DUI and hit-and-run. The circumstances leading to the issuance of the warrant by the court are not readily available at this time. It is our hope that Miss Lohan will surrender herself so that this matter will be resolved in a timely manner.”
Talking to Us magazine, LiLo’s father, Michael Lohan, has already chimed in, saying, “I’m always worried about Lindsay as long as she’s involved in relationships that are harmful to her.”
“I feel like when you’re around the right people, you do the right thing, when you’re around the wrong people, you do the wrong thing. [But] she’ll deal with [the warrant] like she has to. She’s not going to ignore it. Mark my words, as long as Samantha Ronson is in Lindsay’s life, nothing is going to go right!” papa Lohan added.
There’s nothing like having some uber-famous pals to cheer a girl up. And last night (March 13) Rihanna stepped out in New York City with a little help from her friends.
The “Take a Bow” songstress was spotted leaving a girlfriend’s apartment to meet up with Beyonce Knowles, Jay-Z, and Brandy to celebrate her belated birthday.
Looking for some delicious dining, the celebrity clique headed over to The Spotted Pig restaurant in Manhattan’s West Village for dinner.
In related news, the rumors that Rihanna had a duet in the works with battering boyfriend Chris Brown following their domestic altercation have turned out to be false. A People magazine source revealed, “Contrary to published reports, Chris Brown and Rihanna did not record a duet after the incident.”

Looking ever the adorable couple, Gwen Stefani and youngest son Zuma Rossdale had a little fun in the sun as they relaxed by the swimming pool at their Palm Springs hotel on Tuesday (March 10).

As for Zuma, Gwen recently dished on her little boy’s musical likings - revealing he has a thing for Britney Spears.
Gwen tells, “He’s really into anything that’s popular and he’s really into Britney’s songs… because she actually lives on my street and he would go over there… He thinks she’s really great. And he flirts with her and stuff.”
“He likes hits, he’s like his mum, he likes just all the hits. Any song that comes on [the radio], he’ll be like, ‘That’s my song, that’s my song!’” Gwen added. “He’s just into popular music. He’s into music that’s for sure.”
Following a brief trip to visit her soccer star hubby, Victoria Beckham brought an end to her stay in Milan on Wednesday (March 11).
Sporting a stylish, sixties-style outfit, the jet-setting Spice Girl was spotted arriving at Heathrow Airport fresh off a flight from the Italian city that David has been calling home for the past few months.
Meanwhile, it sounds as if Becks is feeling a bit guilty that his lovely wife has been flying back and forth to Italy, leaving their three sons back in the States with nannies.
A source told Britain’s Daily Express newspaper: “David feels guilty that Victoria is exhausted and it’s difficult for him to tell her how happy he is. He starts to tell her all the great stuff that’s happening to him and she tells him she’s feeling dreadful. There is a divide and it ends in disagreement.”
Nadya Suleman’s octuplets are getting closer to coming home to a larger house. And Nadya will have a fleet of nurses helping her with the new babies. Read more on Nadya Suleman’s news digs below.
The Suleman family is buying a house in Orange County, Calif., that’s nearly twice as large as the one where Nadya, 33, lives with her six older children in Whittier.
“She’s excited,” Suleman’s mother, Angela, tells PEOPLE. “This is an old house and this new one will have a lot more space.”
The 2,583-foot four-bedroom, three-bathroom house in La Habra is “a good house for kids,” with a huge yard, Mike Patel of Prudential Realty tells PEOPLE. “It’s a good house for a big family and there is room to add on more rooms.”
The house, listed at $564,900, has a short escrow that should close later this week, Patel says. He adds he represents the owner, who didn’t know the Suleman family before the deal came together. “They just happened to like this house,” Patel says. The buyer of the home is Ed Doud.
To care for the new babies, Suleman has accepted the invitation of Angels in Waiting, a nonprofit that will provide around-the-clock nurses once the babies are brought home over the next few weeks, according to Dr. Phil McGraw, who helped arranged the deal along with attorney Gloria Allred.
“Nadya realized that she had to make every effort to care for the octuplets as well as the six children at home in a way that proved that she understood the enormity and complexity of the task ahead,” says McGraw, whose show will address the matter Tuesday and Wednesday.
The neonatal intensive care nurses specialize in premature infant developmental care, says Linda Conforti West, CEO and founder of Angels in Waiting. The agency would have 14 nurses a day, four to five at a time, working around the clock, representatives recently told PEOPLE. Normally, they say, that kind of care would cost about $135,000 a month. The nurses’ salaries are paid by the organization.
The arrangement comes amid pressures at home. At least some of Suleman’s other children are angry over the impending arrival of the octuplets, Suleman tells The Insider.
“[They're] externalizing their anger. Internalizing it. They become more withdrawn and get a little more sad,” Suleman tells the show. “One of my kids for a while, I noticed, he didn’t want to deal with the reality of what’s going on. I noticed some tears coming down his face. I held him for ten minutes and he held me back and that’s all he needed.”
Suleman, who on Jan. 26 gave birth to the octuplets, also told the show the weight of all eight babies: Nariah: 3.5 lbs, Makai: 3.5 lbs, Jeremiah: 3.5 lbs, Jonah: 2.5, Josiah: 2.5 lbs, Noah: 4.5 lbs, Isaiah: 4.5 lbs, Maliah: 4 lbs.
As far as the babies’ father, she says she paid him for the sperm donation. “A certain amount of money,” she says, “not too much but just enough so he knew that there were boundaries there. I wanted those boundaries to be really firm and know that this is a business arrangement.”
It’s great to hear Nadya is now accepting the offered help and care of the skilled nurses. Can you imagine caring for eight newborns with six older children at home?
Sources are reporting that the booty call text that was said to have started the whole Chris Brown and Rihanna beating was sent by none other than Chris Brown’s manager, Tina Davis. This story gets more and more interesting! Read more on Chris and Tina Davis below.
Tina Davis is Chris Brown’s longtime manager. And TMZ is reporting that Tina Davis, 39, is the one that sent the text message that started the fight between Chris Brown and girlfriend Rihanna. The text had reportedly come “from a woman who Brown had a previous sexual relationship with.”
There have been rumors that Davis, 39, has been having an affair with Chris Brown since he was only 16 years-old. Brown is now 19.
Police reports released last week give more detail as to how the Chris Brown and Rihanna fight occurred. In the police report, Rihanna said she found a three-page text message on Brown’s phone from a woman with whom he had been previously involved. The couple fought over the text and Chris Brown allegedly beat her.
The New York Daily News has sources which also confirm the story. Their source states that Tina Davis wanted to arrange to meet Chris Brown later that night at a London Hotel.
An industry source previously described the text to The News as a “booty call.”
“Rihanna saw it and she got upset,” the insider said. “They started to argue. She got out of the car. He wanted her to get back in, so he grabbed her. She pulled away. That’s when she’s told people he hit her.”

The latest celebrity to weigh in on the Rihanna/Chris Brown drama is none other than talk show queen Oprah Winfrey, who warned the “Take A Bow” songstress not to jump back into a relationship with her abuser on her show last week.
Winfrey began her discourse, saying, “Both Chris Brown and Rihanna, if I were your friend, I’d call you up and say, ‘Give it some time. Get yourself some counseling. Take care of yourself. Heal yourself first.’”
Upping the ante a bit, Oprah dished out a stern caution to Rihanna - “If a man hits you once, he will hit you again. He will hit you again.”
Guest Gayle King concurred, “If you guys want to get back together, I’m OK with that. But at least take some time. I am so worried she is sending the wrong message to the young fans. And him, too!”

Jon & Kate Plus 8’s Jon Gosselin seems way too busy to find time to cheat on Kate with having a set of twins and sextuplets, plus two new babies at home. But many sources have reported Jon Gosselin was partying with college girls and talking about wanting a divorce! Read more on Jon Gosselin below.
On camera tells one story but real life might suggest things are not so great in the Gosselin family. Jon has said about the filming of their TLC reality show, “We’re having a good time - a blast.” But what about all the rumors saying Jon is flirting with young chicks?
Jon has been spending time visiting his mother in Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, but also seems to be hanging at bars and even going to college parties! Bet Kate won’t like to hear about this!
Star Magazine quotes a witness at the bar as saying:
“He was dirty dancing with several of them, making out, kissing them on their necks and mouths. I thought it was rather surprising for a father with his wife and so many kids at home to be acting like this. He was all over one girl, a long-haired blonde who’s nearly 6 feet tall. He left with several of the girls, including her.”
Jon is also said to be frequenting other bars close to his home, even spending Valentine’s Day away from Kate. Supposedly, he’s even tried to pick up women while out with his mother.
In Touch Weekly reported:
“He walked in with two girls he met at Mimi’s bar,” senior Evan Heisman tells In Touch. “It was so cool.” According to witnesses, Jon played beer pong with some girls on the volleyball team and then joined a group of students who headed to Memories bar for a nightcap.
“We were talking and chilling,” reveals Heisman. Jon returned to Memories the next evening. “He was obliterated,” says Pott. “Juniata girls were flirting with him and he was loving it and having a great time.”
Jon was overheard saying, “We might be getting a divorce,” according to Chloe Pott, a junior at Juniata College, who heard Jon tell her friend at Memories bar on February 7.
So what is Jon doing hanging out at bars with college girls? Is he cheating and is it true about a divorce?
