Taking some time for herself, Rihanna was spotted heading out into downtown New York City on Saturday afternoon (June 27).
The “Take a Bow” songstress left her swanky Midtown Manhattan hotel and pushed past the paparazzi sporting a powder blue hoodie with yellow heels.
Taking advantage of the Big Apple’s retail therapy opportunities, Ri-Ri hit up stores like Steve Madden and H&M for some new duds earlier in the day.
In related news, although she was a no-show, Rihanna scored the Beautiful Hair and Viewer’s Choice trophies at the 2009 BET Awards last night.
In the wake of Michael Jackson’s shocking death last week, his family is preparing to go to court over custody of the late singer’s three children.
Currently Prince (12), Paris (11), and Prince Michael II (7) are staying in Encino, California with their grandmother Katherine Jackson, who hopes to win their custody as opposed to Debbie Rowe, the biological mother of the two eldest children.
Jackson family attorney Londell McMillan told press that there isn’t “anybody who thinks that there is someone better” than the Jackson family to have custody. Of Katherine he said “She is a very loving host of other grandchildren.”
Meanwhile, Rowe’s attorney Marta Almli declared, “Ms. Rowe’s only thoughts at this time have been regarding the devastating loss Michael’s family has suffered. Ms. Rowe requests that Michael’s family, and particularly the children, be spared such harmful, sensationalist speculation and that they be able to say goodbye to their loved one in peace.”
