NY Daily News is report that Hov may be a little hot with LeBron...

The Internet is popping with a report that Hov, who's also a minority owner of the New Jersey Nets, is upset that James kept him out of the loop on his decision to join the Miami team.

Supposedly, "EXTREMELY CREDIBLE insider" says Jay felt disrespected that King James did not consult with him during the free agency process."

And Gatecrasher got a similar take from a source in Jay-Z's camp. "Jay never expected LeBron to sign with the Nets. He knew that no 25-year-old kid with James' profile was going to spend years in Newark," the source tells Gatecrasher. "But he's pissed, or at least disappointed, that LeBron didn't consult with him."

Another NBA insider says Jay-Z's real source of dissatisfaction should be with Nets owner Prokhorov. "The Nets have no basketball team," the source says, saying that Prokhorov "overpromoted and overmarketed" the team, but wasn't able to deliver a player with genuine box-office appeal.

GV Says: I actually think it's all good between these two


Seriously, who does this broke 'B' think she's fooling???

NY Daily New reports that Foxy Brown rolled up to court in a black Lamborghini Tuesday.

She emerged from her fly ride dressed to the nines in a teal dress, plunging neckline and heels to the heavens.

Her fans loved it, but Judge Geraldine Pickett couldn't care less, instead extending an order of protection a neighbor took out against Brown in 2007 when the raunchy rapper beaned her with a BlackBerry.

Brown was in Brooklyn Criminal Court for a status hearing on allegations she violated the original order when she tangled with Arlene Raymond outside her Prospect Heights home last week.

Brown cursed Raymond out, bent over and thrust her exposed butt out, authorities said.

"B----, what are you looking at?" she snarled, according to the criminal complaint. "Kiss my a--."

Foxy, whose real name is Inga Marchand, was represented by a new lawyer, Salvatore Strazzullo, hired Sunday after Bruce Barron surprisingly announced he was no longer working with her.

"We deny the allegations that she mooned Ms. Raymond," Strazzullo said. "Ms. Marchand is innocent, absolutely innocent."

Prosecutor David Weiss said evidence would be presented to a grand jury.

"Yes, I will testify before a grand jury," Foxy said outside the courtroom.

"We just had a sold out concert at B.B. King's," she added.

Strazzullo also asked that an an order of protection be issued against Raymond.

The judge denied it.

GV Says: This is sad. This girl is clearly not making money yet she finds it necessary to scrape together two nickels to prove she's still who though?

Looks that way...

CNN reports that a federal appeals court has denied Wesley's claim that his three-year prison sentence for tax evasion was "unreasonable."

A panel of judges in the 11th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals upheld Snipes' 2008 sentencing on three misdemeanor counts of failing to file tax returns.

"The district court acted well within its considerable discretion in sentencing Snipes to thirty-six months in prison," the judges said.

Snipes had argued that the only reasonable sentence would have been a period of probation.

Snipes argued that the judge who sentenced him in April 2008 did not consider mitigating factors like his college education, family and charitable activities.

Federal prosecutors said Snipes for nearly a decade escaped paying more than $15 million in income tax returns by sending money to overseas accounts, though they acknowledged in court that the amount was in dispute.

Before the sentencing in 2008, the actor asked the court to show mercy and offered three checks totaling $5 million as a gesture of good will.

Federal prosecutors diverted the checks to the U.S. Treasury, which accepted the payment -- but it wasn't enough.

"It's essentially a down payment, but a fraction of what he owes," Assistant U.S. Attorney Scotland Morris said at the time.


Alicia Keys has parted with her longtime manager, Jeff Robinson.

AK has been represented by Robinson's MBK Entertainment since the beginning of her career. She supposedly ended her business relationship with Robinson earlier this week.

There are multiple rumors as to why the pair is ending their business relationship, however one rep for Keys – she has two – says the split was "amicable" and sent a joint statement on behalf of the singer and her former manager.

"Jeff Robinson, CEO of MBK Entertainment Inc., and 12 time Grammy Award winner Alicia Keys have decided to change the structure of their business relationship. Robinson and Keys will continue to collaborate and produce future albums together through MBK/J Records while Alicia will now oversee all aspects of her own personal career. MBK Entertainment Inc. has been the management firm for Alicia Keys since she was a teenager-guiding every facet of her career, including the international success of her Grammy Award winning, multi-platinum albums, films and branding opportunities. Keys and Robinson have been partners for over a decade and would like opportunities to pursue other endeavors. Their decision is mutually agreed upon and amicable," the statement read.

"This decision will allow Alicia more control over all aspects of her career from singing and songwriting, to leading many business ventures and social causes," the statement continued. "Keys' company, AK Worldwide, will now have responsibility and oversight for Alicia's touring, endorsements, sponsorships, licensing, new business development, television and film ventures. MBK, a multifaceted entertainment company with a film, television, publishing and independent marketing divisions, will have the opportunity to focus on developing the careers of new, young talented artists. The company will also delve deeper into the gospel music format with their newly formed Glory to Glory Records."

GV Says: That was a long statement. It's it weird that when people have major changes in their personal lives - marriage, baby, etc - they make major business decisions. I'm just saying....


We hear that Weezy owes....

$1.13 million to be exact. There's was a tax lien against the rapper last month, according to Florida court records.

The IRS filed a $977,840 lien against him two years ago, but he paid it off in August 2008.

He is set to be released from prison this fall following a conviction on gun charges.


So here's the latest on the Dream/ Christina saga.

So Dream wrote this foolish letter:

First I want to thank God for the trials of life, without them we can't know purpose!

I would love to tell the truth as to why my relationship wasn't successful, but today that is between me and Christina. Its easy to say that it’s because of another woman or a new relationship but truthfully, IT’S NOT.

I take FULL RESPONSIBILITY for misleading everyone into thinking everything was fine and okay when we knew problems existed for awhile! I wanted to speak up but we decided it wasn't for anyone to know. I would NEVER intentionally hurt a soul and everyone around me knows that! There was so much going on in me and Christina's personal world that I tried to deal with it as delicately as I could and tried to regain my footing. Instead of being direct in order not to cause even more hurt or hurt someone's feelings, I carried the weight in secret!

I am Human and people fall in and out of Love all the time... This is Life. Nothing’s promised or perfect, neither am I. I am not proud that I lost something we once had...LOVE! I've always been a Loving Father, Hard Worker, Generous, Stern and Eager to prove myself. My faults are I can be irresponsible and an ass sometimes, but I HAVE NEVER and WILL NEVER be a malicious person or wish harm to anyone, especially those I love or the mother of my child. I'm sorry for the embarrassment to everyone involved! If there's anyone to blame and you can't fathom this happening, please blame me and me alone for not being upfront! Even though we were trying to overcome personal things between us, I was just simply scared and embarrassed to let everyone know we WERE FAILING and HAVE NOW FAILED!

This is not to justify anything, it’s true emotion! It’s a real thing that involves real people! I've cried about this for months, after interviews, after prayer and I've tried to take my own life at a point because of the failure that was looming.

But I was reminded by my MOTHER that I am not "Superman" and its okay to lose sometimes...

This too shall pass! And everything will be fine!

~ Terius Nash ~

So help me get this..... you tried really hard to keep a marriage together for less than a year and most of that time she was pregnant with hormones flying and changes happening to her body. would have been better not to say a word. This just shows how low he'll go to clear his name. You suck Dream.

HipHollywood's Kevin Frazier spoke exclusively to Carmen Milian, and she told us that the only thing she is focused on right now is the well-being of her daughter and grandchild. "I love them both so much and that is all I care about right now. I want to make sure that I protect my daughter and granddaughter."

Carmen had absolutely nothing to say about The Dream and added that, as a rule, she tries stay out of her kids’ romantic endeavors. "I don't get involved in any of my children’s relationships. What they do is up to them". She went on to explain that Milian and her family refuse to get caught up in bashing The Dream, as they are more concerned with getting through this difficult time.


Do I hear another train wreck of a reality show hitting the air waves...Why yes I do. K-Ci and Jo Jo are getting their own reality show. It's called "Come Clean" and it'll air on TV One. This should be interesting.

After Cavalier owner Dan Gilbert posted a hateful letter aimed at LeBron James for choosing Miami over his home team, the NBA slapped a cool fine of $100,000 on him.

In the letter he called James all sorts of derogatory things and promised that the Cavaliers would win a NBA title before James does.

Reverend Jesse Jackson responded to Gilbert’s anger by accusing him of having a slave owner’s mentality.

"He speaks as an owner of LeBron and not the owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers…His feelings of betrayal personify a slave master mentality. He sees LeBron as a runaway slave. This is an owner employee relationship -- between business partners -- and LeBron honored his contract." (ESPN)

Gilbert kept his response to Jackson short and sweet.

“I strongly disagree with Rev. Jesse Jackson's recent comments and we are not going to engage in any related discussion on it.” (ESPN)

GV Says: Shut up Jesse. Dan is digging a fine enough hole for himself without your help.

I never wish bad on anyone but I knew months ago this was a wrap. The Dream has been no where to be seen in months and hints of splittsville were looming when he started saying married life was hard out-loud in interviews.

The singer and her music-producer husband The-Dream have decided to separate, his rep tells

"Terius 'The-Dream' Nash is saddened to announce that his marriage to Christina Milian was unsuccessful," the rep confirms to the mag. "The couple reached this decision in late 2009, but decided to keep the news private in efforts to protect their baby daughter, Violet. They ask for consideration and respect for their family moving forward."

The couple's split doesn't come as a surprise, as new scandalous photos have surfaced showing The-Dream frolicking in the Caribbean over the weekend with a woman who is not his wife. According to Us, the other woman is the producer's assistant of about a year, Melissa Santiago.In one photo, The-Dream reportedly is not wearing his wedding band as he is being straddled by Santiago in the water. Milian, 28, and The-Dream, 29, eloped last September in Las Vegas and tied the knot a second time in Rome in December.

They welcomed Violet in February.

Snoop recently had a candid conversation about his family...

It all began five years ago when they noticed a light spot on the face of Cori, then 6 years old. Weeks later, the daughter of Snoop Dogg and wife Shanté Broadus was losing drastic amounts of weight and her hair was falling out.

Despite visiting countless doctors, no one was able to offer the rapper and his family a diagnosis for Cori. "I felt helpless," Snoop told People reporters while fighting back tears. "No power, no friends."

His wife Shanté adds, "No one could tell me what was wrong. They drew tons of blood and said she has old-person cells. They gave her all kinds of [medication]. But she went downhill."

Months later, after getting the diagnosis of lupus, Snoop Dogg and his family began their journey to understand the autoimmune disease, which ultimately brought his family closer together.

"She's the toughest little thing I've ever met," the rapper says of his daughter. "She's on the honor roll, playing volleyball and softball, living life. She has all this joy. In the beginning lupus was winning. But now Cori is."


So RiRi has had a rather decent year.

Her SNL skit "Shy Ronnie" was nominated for an Emmy award....too funny


Who knew...Martin Lawrence just tied the knot

Martin Lawrence and his longtime girlfriend, Shamicka Gibbs, were married in an intimate wedding on Saturday at his home in Beverly Hills.

Martin, 45, and Shamicka, 35, exchanged vows in the backyard in front of 120 guests, including Eddie Murphy and Denzel Washington. Their daughters Amara, 9, and Iyana, 7, and Lawrence's daughter Jasmine, 14, from a previous marriage were flower girls.

After the ceremony, the newlyweds joined their guests under a tent for a reception.


Finally....after 5 years, LaLa and Carmelo wed.

The two wed in New York City Saturday night. Their 3-year-old son, Kiyan, escorted them to the altar.

Lala, 30, walked down the aisle, adorned with red and hot pink flowers, in a Vera Wang gown. About 320 people, including pals Kim Kardashian and LeBron James, attended the ceremony, held at Cipriani.

Anthony, 26, proposed five years ago with an 8-carat cushion-cut diamond. He added 2 1/2-more carats with two matching wedding bands, worth about $200,000, according to her jeweler, XIV Karat designer Ron Rosenblum.

"Best night of my entire life," Vazquez wrote on her Twitter page. "Thank u to all my family and friends who shared tonight with me. I love u. I'm on cloud 9 right now."

Really....isn't it about time.

Lohan received no sympathy from L.A. Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel, who found she violated probation on a pair of 2007 DUI busts.

A weepy LiLo made a last-ditch plea for freedom, bizarrely invoking her charity work with Moroccan children at one point.

"I'm not taking this as a joke," the party-hearty actress said during a rambling speech in which she broke down twice.

"It's my life. It's my career. I've learned."

An unmoved Revel sentenced Lohan to three consecutive 30-day sentences - three times what prosecutors were seeking - to be followed by rehab.

"She comes and goes as she pleases," said Revel. "There's been a history of that. No excuses."

Revel dismissed Lohan's appeal for leniency as insincere, citing her record of lying repeatedly about drinking and drugging.

"It's like somebody who cheats doesn't think they're cheating until they get caught," the judge said.

Oh Alicia....girl you better take care of yourself.

GV Says: Swizz your girl is out here pregnant doing too much.


We hear Kanye is back on the market...

Sources say he and Amber are taking a break.

"They are still good friends," the source tells Us rag mag. "Kanye is consumed with recording his comeback record in Hawaii and had to shut it all off. When he's in work mode, he can't handle a relationship. He told Amber he needs to devote everything right now to his craft."

And it looks like Amber isn't losing too mulch sleep over it.

Over the Fourth of July weekend, she was spotted making out with Kim Kardashian's ex Reggie Bush at Axe Lounge in NYC's The Hamptons -- as West's hit "Flashing Lights" blared from the speakers.


Rihanna bared her back-side in a black PVC bodysuit while performing July 4 in Vancouver.

GV Says: A long booty is never flattering. Doesn't matter whose it is.

Despite being on the low for a bit, this dude still moves numbers. Eminem sold a whopping 741,000 albums during his first week of Recovery's release. That's what's up.


Somebody's doing it big. Drake just had a Virgin Airline plane named after him in celebration of Sir Richard Branson launching his first Virgin flight between Toronto and Cali cities. And of course, Toronto's hometown hero Drake was the perfect person to help celebrate.

The two arrived at Toronto's Pearson International Airport on a special Virgin America flight from California. It's $199 each way for anyone interested. The airline recently introduced flights between Toronto and both L.A. and San Francisco. The two men were greeted on the tarmac by ceremonial Canadian Mounties.
