The Carters are steaming things up overseas. Check out Bey's new Tumblr pics and video of the couple performing inside…
Last night, Beyonce bought her Mrs. Carter World Tour to London for her second of six shows in the O2 arena and her hubby Jay Z joined her on stage to perform their hit “Drunk In Love.”
Mrs. Carter uploaded a few shots from her show last night to her Tumblr:
Bey kept it sexy rocking a sparkly Vrettos Vrettakos jumpsuit alongside Jay in his typical black shirt, black jeans and boots. Last week Bey rocked the 2014 Brit Awards in an emerald Vrettos Vrettakos dress. Chic loves Vrettos Vrettakos.
Earlier this week, Bey surprised a fan during her tour stop through Birmingham where she sang “Happy Birthday” to one of her biggest fans during her show.
Bey will be hitting the London O2 arena stage until March 6th and then she travels to Dublin, Ireland.
Check video of the couple’s performance below:
One fan attending Bey's concert last night just couldn't contain theirsevles and got their wig SNATCHED by the Queen. As she's singing "XO" a wig is tossed in front of Bey as she's walking. She stops during her song and said "You got me snatching wigs"

Chris Brown was back in court yesterday while VH1 cancelled their “Single Ladies” series. Find out what’s going on with Breezy and his mental health and the deets on “Single Ladies” being cancelled inside …
Now it’s starting to kinda make sense. Chris Brown has reportedly been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, severe insomnia and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, which may explain his anger issues.
Breezy recently completed his 90-day rehab visit (which he voluntarily adding 5 extra days to his visit) and was due to appear in Los Angeles Superior Court for a progress hearing in his Rihanna case.
Hopefully, this diagnosis will offer him the help he really needs and keep him on track.
Chris and his bodyguard are facing misdemeanor simple assault charges after a man says Chris punched him in the face outside the W Hotel in D.C. back in October. Breezy’s camp says the man was trespassing on their tour bus and they were simply reacting to his trespassing.
We'll keep you posted on how that all pans out.
In TV news...
VH1’s scripted series “Single Ladies” has been cancelled after 3 seasons.
Executive producer Queen Latifah and her Flavor Unit Entertainment company created VH1’s first hourlong scripted series for the network but now the network is pulling the plug.
VH1 released a statement to the Hollywood Reporter saying:
TheYBF.com caught up with LisaRaye earlier this year where she dished on the changes her character Keisha will go through and the sensational fashions she will be wearing in season 3.
LisaRaye McCoy, Charity Shea and Denise Vasi are currently wrapping up their third season on the network and will soon be on the job hunt for their next role.
Good luck to those ladies.

Robin Thicke and Paula Patton’s son Julian was involved in an accident with the paparazzi recently. Find out the deets inside…
The accident happened on Feb. 27th on Sunset Boulevard in L.A. Paula’s mother, Paula’s assistant and Julian (who was riding in the back seat) were all in the actresses’ black Range Rover when the accident occurred.
Luckily, no one was hurt.
Glad little Julian is ok.
Speaking of Paula….
She recently addressed her split with her estranged husband on her Instagram.
She expressed how she’s feeling about the divorce with the picture above saying, “Everything happens for a reason. If you love something let it go, if it comes back it’s yours, if it doesn’t, it was and it’s not meant to be.”
Robin has desparately been trying to win Paula back and revealed during his concert in Fairfax, VA, "For those of you who don't know, my wife and I separated a few days ago. But I want y'all to know, I'm trying to get my girl back."
Good luck with that.

Malcolm told the crowd after accepting his award:
"I am honored to be recognized by Uptown magazine for my body of work. The publication, like the stories I am so passionate about telling, represents the complexity that is us. I am gratified and humbled to join the likes of previous recipients of this honor."
Actresses Malinda Williams showed up in a purple printed bodycon dress looking cute in her signature pixie cut.
"The Best Man Holiday" star Monica Calhoun hit the carpet in a one-shoulder stripped frock. Good to see her out and about since we rarely got to see her during BMH promo.
YBF chic Joy Bryant attended the event dressed in all black. Cute.
Actress Robinne Lee from "Being Mary Jane" kept it simple in a teal laced knee-length dress.
Singer Kenny Lattimore posed for a pic with Co-Founder/Co-CEO of Uptown Magazine Len Burnett.
Actress Tasha Smith (middle) looked hot in a blue dress paired with pointed red shoes. Style lifestyle expert Tai Beauchamp (left) looked white hot in a long-sleeved white floor lengthed dress with gold accents.

Well, what do we have here? Chris Brown is coming out of rehab with a strong start by teaming up with pop princess Ariana Grande. Check out their thisclose pic from a mystery rehearsal, plus Drake was spotted partying it up with Rihanna's half sister named Samantha in Berlin...
Oh, hey Breezy. Way to come back to the music scene. Chris Brown posted this pic of himself and 20-year-old pop starlet and Nickelodeon actress Ariana grande, aka Mini Mariah with no details. He simply said, "Coming Soon."
It looks to be a pic from rehearsals for an upcoming project that requires them to do some ballet together. Word has it they're working on a major duet together.
Now that Breezy's back on Instagram, he's dishing out the selfies of himself again. Glad he's looking better these days!
And over in Berlin:
After hopping off the stage with Kanye West at the O2 World, Drake trekked it to the 'I love you but I've chosen disco' party at Puro Sky Lounge. And he was spotted getting pretty close to a chick at his hookah table.
But...it's actually the half-sister of his rumored booty buddy/boo Rihanna! Her name is Samantha and she was there to party it up with Drizzy as Rihanna was hitting the fashion week shows in Paris.

Superproducer & Oscar nominee Pharrell Williams spoke with TheYBF.com this week about his upcoming album G I R L, the “black girl controversy” behind his album cover, how and why he decided to make a sophomore album, working with the Queen Bey and more. Check out our chat inside...
With his sophomore album dropping March 3rd and his “Happy” record being nominated for an Oscar, Skateboard P talked with TheYBF.com about why he decided to come out with a new album 8 years after his debut album In My Mind. Yes, 8 years!
P also shared his thoughts on his music leaking before the official release date, going #1 on the Pop charts and if we can expect new music from him and Beyonce. And we must say, we learned a lot. And the baby-faced talent is also a great conversationalist.
Pharrell is scheduled to perform during the Oscar’s this Sunday, so be sure to tune in. His new album G I R L drops Monday, March 3rd.

Kyla Pratt is a mom for the second time around. And, much like the birth of her first daughter, Lyric, she gave birth with virtually no one knowing! Find out about her brand new baby girl inside...
Yesterday, we posted pics of "Let's Stay Together" actress Kyla Pratt at L.A.'s Inside Jokes comedy night with her man and her celeb friends. And we noticed a protruding belly that looked VERY much like a baby bump.
So, we reached out to Kyla this morning to find out if she and her boyfriend/baby's father Danny Kilpatrick are expecting number 2. Or...if she recently gave birth without us knowing.
And we were hit with a nugget. Child star-turned-grown woman indeed ulled a sleuth move and became a mom again...this past August!
Her rep Ernest Dukes tells TheYBF.com:
We're not sure of the six-month old's name, but 3-year-old Lyric is officially a big sister.
