Well looky here.  The Game is cozying up pretty damn close to his "friend" Khloe Kardashian.  Peep the twosome's love in the club last night inside...

They keep trying to convince us that they are simply long time friends.  But we have yet to be convinced. 

The newly divorced Khloe and rapper The Game--who we still can't understand if he's with on again/off again fiancee' Tiffney or not--pulled double duty as hosts of Tru nightclub last night in L.A.

They were spotted with their arms around each other, dancing closely, and having a good ol' time with their friends.

Game's assistant was there too, of course, since they may have already kicked off taping "LAHH: LA".

And Game & Khloe were spotted arriving together with the Kardashian clan as well--Mom Dukes Kris and bestie Khadijah Haqq.

We give it a couple months before they tell the world "their friendship has blossomed into something beautiful". 


Here's to (quickly) getting over that divorce boo....

Ms. "Being Mary Jane" revealed some things about her upcoming second marriage while sitting on Arsenio Hall's couch last night.  But first, peep that rock:

 photo ScreenShot2014-02-11at84604AM_zps94669eab.png

Gabby divorced her first husband, NFLer Chris Howard, in 2005.  And when asked what she will be doing differently in her upcoming marriage to NBA star Dwyane Wade, she said a prenup!

 photo 1920369_649986198389006_1473293202_n_zps660f747b.jpg

While rocking a little black dress by Amen and Aperlai shoes, Gabby posed it up with her "BMJ" cast.  Then dished it all.

"The biggest difference between this and the last marriage, will be a pre-nup. At my insistence. When you have your own stuff, you don't need to worry about anybody else's stuff. So everyone should go into the relationship saying I'm here for you and you're here for me. And the reality is, I've never seen Dwyane balance a check book. So I got to protect my stuff."

She also dished some deets about her & D-Wade's upcoming wedding.  It will be very small with no bridal party.  And she revealed who is NOT invited. 

"There are no bridesmaids and no Groomsmen.  Trying to wrangle a bunch of broads...somebody wants one type of dress, somebody wants something else, you start to not like them after a couple months.  And we're older.  This is the second time around.  It's us and the kids.  We're just riding out...just us.

"There's a lot of people that think they're coming.  They're not.  He's the executioner.  He's like, 'Let's go through your list...absolutely not.'  I'm like, 'My cousin?'  If you're not about us, and we don't both have a relationship with you, you're not going to make it. So if we were at Magic City in Atlanta, you're probably not coming."

Ha!  Check out the videos below:

Kelly Rowland, who went from one part of Destiny's Child to a solo star with abs of steel, celebrates her 33rd birthday today.  Kelly's celebration comes along with some bittersweet news this week...."X-Factor", where she served as a judge this past season, was cancelled by Fox.  Though Kelly will no longer have a platform to showcase her sexy style on a weekly basis, she leaves singing the praises of Simon Cowell to the BBC,

“You know what? It was an incredible experience and I made new friends. “You’ve got to think about the fact there’s American Idol, The Voice and all these new shows that are coming up. But I have to compliment Simon because he started it all with American Idol.”

At least now, Kelly can completely focus on her upcoming fifth studio album and wedding to fiance Tim Witherspoon.  And serving up more hotness with more bikini time on Miami Beach...her fave place.

In addition to February 11th also being Brandy's birthday, it's also the day Whitney Houston made her transition in 2012. Kelly posted Whitney's pic on Instagram in remembrance.

MORE TROUBLE IN PARADISE? Tiny Pops Off About T.I.'s Cheating Accusations...Before He Tells Her To Stop Flaunting Her ASSets

Posted: 10 Feb 2014 12:25 PM PST

 photo titinyig_zpsa3034594.jpg

After T.I. & Tiny tried to downplay a very public fight during GRAMMY weekend, it looks like all isn't as perfect as they're trying to make it seem.  T.I. is putting his girl on blast for flossing her ASSets constantly.  And Tiny is popping off about cheating accusations...and she seems unbothered about where exactly Clifford is putting his piece.


Deets inside...

A few weeks ago, Tiny, her daughter Zonnique, and friends took a trip to some warm sandy beaches (above).  And they posted pics all over IG.  There was no shortage of ass shots of Tiny in a bikini (she had to show off her doc's work some type of way). 

So when Tiny posted the below pic yesterday to show off her new tattoo...and we're sure she got her booty in the shot for an extra bonus...her husband T.I. commented on her pic about it being too much for IG:

 photo starst1_zps16223b48.jpg

Mr. Troubleman said:

u have so much more going for u other than you a**. Although it is magnificent, I think u should spend just as much time showcasing those other things as u do ya #booty….Awesome pic tho. Luv.

Tiny responded:

Seems like some passive aggressive lovin' there, right?  Well, we happened upon some brazen comments from Tiny from a few days ago.  While she was posting pics of this ginormous tatt, this happened in the comments:
