So this is what had Nick all in an uproar

Rag mag Life & Style took some very intimate photos of Mimi days before her twins are due.

"I was feeling very vulnerable about taking pictures at all right now, but then I didn't want to miss this opportunity to document this once-in-a-lifetime experience," she tells the mag. "My ultimate goal was to share this incredibly personal moment with my true fans."

But while Carey, 42, may have been hesitant to jump in front of the camera so close to giving birth, her twins were more than ready for the flashing bulbs.

"The babies were kicking almost the entire time; it was unbelievable," Carey says. "Especially the girl - clearly she's a diva in training! We didn't start shooting until 1:30 a.m. because I was in the hospital from the night before until the day of the shoot with contractions five minutes apart!"

And after her brief hospital stay on March 27, Carey adds, "I have so much respect for mothers everywhere who've had difficult pregnancies or given birth to multiples. We need to have Mother's Day once a week!"

Nick seems to feel the same.

"I thought I couldn't love Mariah more," he says. "But I have a whole new appreciation and admiration for her."

So Nick Cannon and wifey Mariah recently posed for some nude pics. The photos will be displayed in their home, which means their "children are going to have to see these pictures," Cannon said on his 92.3 NOW radio show.

Now he has regrets.

"It's a little weird," the host said of the pics in hindsight, though they were intended to be a special way to remember the pregnancy.

But "when [the kids] get older and their friends come over, they will see the pictures and say, 'Your daddy's butt naked.'"

"It's a little nasty," Cannon reportedly said. "I mean, have you ever seen your parents naked?"

Mimi, 42, and Cannon, 30, are expecting twins this spring.

Flavor Flav is quickly becoming Public Enemy #1 among employees at his new fried chicken joint in Iowa.

Workers at Flavor Flav's Chicken in Clinton, Iowa, are claiming that his paychecks are bouncing.

Both Kelly Butler and Kim Kostka told Iowa's WQAD television that the restaurant's owner, Nick Cimino, owes them three weeks of pay after banks refused to accept their pay checks.

"My check was only $150 and they couldn't even cash it," Butler told the station.

Butler also said she was turned down at several banks before finally taking her case to Freedom bank, which holds the restaurant's account.

But even they wouldn't accept Flav's check. Instead, they gave her a letter saying the funds weren't available, she told the station.

Flavor Flav, whose real name is William Drayton Jr., told WQAD that the disgruntled workers were haters.

"It's not true information first of all, and second of all maybe these are people that's just jealous of me being here and probably want to see me out," the "Flavor of Love" star said.

"Yes, we do have money in our accounts," he added.

Cimino admitted to having a "glitch" with the restaurant's credit cards, but said the employees claims were attempts at revenge for being fired.

"Employees are going to say whatever they need to say, especially after you fire them" Cimino said.

Several other employees who did not want to be named also came forward and said their checks had bounced, WQAD said.

Flavor Flav's Chicken, or FFC, opened in January.

Lil Wayne's pockets are about to get a bit lighter, because Uncle Sam wants his fair share. The New Orleans rapper was hit with a federal tax lien to the tune of $5.6 million.

According to The Detroit News, the IRS lien, dated March 2 but made official on March 28, was filed in Miami Dade County and notes that Dwayne M. Carter has an unpaid income-tax balance due of $3,351,078 for 2008 and $2,258,956 for 2009. The Miami Beach, Florida, address listed on the lien is for Wayne's 15,101-square-foot mansion, which is currently on the market for a shade under $13 million.

This is not the first time Weezy has had to settle an overdue tax bill. Last year, the Young Money CEO was hit with - and paid out - a lien by the IRS that totaled $1.1 million for income tax years 2004, 2005 and 2007.


What's really going on? Oral sex from a male prostitute??

Hot 97's Mister Cee, a popular HOT 97 deejay and record producer, was busted for public lewdness after cops caught him in a car receiving oral sex from another man, authorities said Monday.

Cee, whose given name is Calvin Lebrun, 44, and a male companion, Lawrence Campbell, 20, were arrested at 3:55 a.m last Wednesday, according to court papers.

The pair were in a car parked at Watts and West Sts. and "the defendants' behavior was open to public view,'' the criminal complaint said.

Both men were charged with public lewdness and exposure of a person. They were released after their arraignment and are due back in court in June.

Cee first made a name for himself in the hip-hop world as Big Daddy Kane's deejay. He later produced "Ready to Die," Notorious B.I.G.'s first album.

On Hot 97, he hosts "Throwback at Noon," a classic hits hour. He was on air today, and a station manager said the allegation against him is not true.

A police source said Cee was busted in lower Manhattan last Oct. 8 and Nov. 20, both times for loitering for the purpose of prostition.

He pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct after the October arrest. Charges in the November case appear to have been dropped.

GV Says: Wow.....I hate that for him. He is on blast.

Remember Sara Stokes from Diddy's Making Da Band. They were the originals. We'll it seems despite Sara's decent pipes the only thing she makes the news for is her domestic problems.

Sources close to Sara reported to TMZ, it all went down last weekend at a friend's house in Georgia -- Tony Stokes accused Sara of being with another man ... and then allegedly choked and hit her.

According to law enforcement, Tony was arrested for simple battery -- and released the next day on $2,000 bail.

Tony's taking it all in stride ... telling us, "Everybody speculates and blows things out of proportion. It's a crazy kind of life. We're dysfunctional. We need our own TV show. I love my wife."

This isn't the couple's first alleged domestic incident -- back in 2009, Sara was accused of stabbing Tony after an argument went nuclear.
