Troubled R&B bad boy Chris Brown appeared in court today after he was kicked out of rehab (for multiple reasons) and arrested for violating his probation in the Rihanna case.

TMZ is reporting Breezy will sit behind bars until April 23rd which is when a judge will hold a probation violation hearing. The judge decided to keep Breezy behind bars due to his "inability to stay out of trouble."

Chris appears in a D.C. court on April 17th in an unrelated case after he was accused of assault outside of a hotel.

If Chris is convicted in the D.C. assault case, he could possibly be facing 4 years in prison.

The photog expressed to the judge he wanted Ye’ to be sent to jail and he also said he felt like Kanye attacked him to promote his album, Yeezus.

According to TMZ, Yeezy was sentenced to 2 years of informal probation, 24 private therapy sessions for anger management, he has to complete 250 hours of community service AND he has to stay away from the photographer.

Kanye must also pay for any damage done to the photog’s equipment and any hospital bills he acquired.

Oprah Winfrey plans to sell Harpo Studios in Chicago to Sterling Bay developers. If you haven't had a chance to take a photo on the sacred ground, you have about two years left. That's how long they expect the studio will remain on the property.  

A Harpo spokesman said, "We have entered into a purchasing agreement with Sterling Bay for the four-building Harpo Studios campus in Chicago's West Loop...We expect the transaction to be closed in 30 days. The property will be leased back to Harpo for two years and the studio will continue to produce programming for OWN."

Solange Talks Relationships & Fashion In Harper’s Bazaar + Karrueche & Kyla Pratt Attend "A Brighter Future For Children" Benefit In Beverly Hills

Posted: 17 Mar 2014 03:06 PM PDT

 photo Solange1.png

Solange splashs an array of colors in fashion magazine Harper’s Bazaar while Karrueche and Kyla Pratt hit up a charity event. Check the pics when you go inside…

 photo Solange3.png

Solange Knowles shows off her funky, eclectic style in fashion magazine, Harper’s Bazaar this month.  The New Orleans resident (after leaving her brownstone apartment in Brooklyn) kept it cute in a $12,500 Chanel dress, a Moshino jumpsuit and Ralph Lauren sweater dress shot by Julia Noni.

Bey’s fab little sister has isolated herself in Cajun country as she works on a new album.

"I figure there's no better way to buckle down and finish it than to be as far away from everyone as possible, cell phone and computer behind. I'm not very good at writing songs when I have a lot of clutter in my mind."

 photo Solange4.png

The 27-year old fashionista dished on following in her big sis Beyonce’s footsteps, her failed marriage with her childhood sweetheart Daniel Smith, her current relationship with video director Alan Ferguson and revealed whether she would let her son Juelz enter the entertainment industry.

 photo Solange2.png

Here are the highlights below:

On her following Beyonce’s footstep to become an entertainer:
"My parents constantly tried to talk me out of being an artist," she says. "They had gone through the whole journey with my sister and just wanted me to have a normal teenage life."

On her failed relationship with her ex-husband Daniel Smith:
"In a lot of ways, emotionally and mentally, I feel far older than 27," she says. "Just going through a marriage and a divorce—which I essentially did by 21—will give you an insane amount of perspective on life."

"We co-parent really well," she says. "I'm able to say, 'I need to finish this album, can you step up and take care of the boy?' "

On her fashion sense:
"You can pull images of me from seven to 14 years ago and I was absolutely nuts," she says. "I have always been drawn to interesting pieces and colors, but I didn't quite know how to limit myself and make those statement pieces work. It sounds silly, I know, but having space for my clothes made a huge difference. I was able to get organized, free myself of clutter, and develop a style that felt like me."

On if she’d let her son Juelz get into the entertainment industry:
"It's certainly not what I have in mind for him," she says with a laugh. "I'm constantly trying to push him to work at the U.N., or be a diplomat. I try to convince him by explaining that he wouldn't have to wait in lines at the airport, and that he can park anywhere."

On her relationship with video director Alan Ferguson:
"Luckily, I dated all of the losers ages ago. My love life has been stable for a while," she says, adding wryly, "It's a fucked-up thing—without conflict it's a lot harder to write interesting songs."

Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade attended The Annual Reid and Fiorentino Call of The Game dinner at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino hosted by Gabby.

Dwyane had on a gray Ferragamo suit while Gabby wore a smoke print Sara Roka exclusive gown and EK Thongprasert statement necklace.

D. Wade’s teammate LeBron James (pictured above with Florida attorney Ron Book and his daughter Lauren Book) was being honored the Don Shula Sports Legend Award during a dinner awarded by the Miami Dolphins’ legendary coach Don Shula.

LeBron sat next to his mother, Gloria James, during his dinner ceremony. We told you last week his wife Savannah is almost 4 months pregnant expecting baby #3, which would explain why she wasn’t present for the dinner honoring her husband.

 photo wunion10.png

And Gabby & D. Wade were busted as they tried to sneak out of the event, missing Lebron's award ceremony.

And they were in a hurry to leave because…

 photo wunion1.png

They had an engagement party to get to!

Although Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade got engaged back in December, the couple hosted their engagement party at Pearl at Nikki Beach in Miami on Saturday. They were surrounded by family and friends including Kelly Rowland, Kevin Hart & Jamie Foxx.

 photo wunion2.png

The “Being Mary Jane” star’s parents were also in attendance. She shared on Instagram:

"You know it's a good time when Pops is turnt is the club... #pearlchampagnelounge#ohmyleg#noYOUtellmydadhesbeencutofffrombottleservice.”

 photo wunion3.png

She posted this funny picture above of her parents glued to their cell phones saying:

While me @telltell_heart @dauniedaune were busy havin fun... Those youngins were very busy chile on their phones #settinuplatenightmoveswithoutthekids

Ha! Still no word on an official date for their actual wedding.

Now it's back to the grind as D. Wade and the Miami Heat head to the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio (LeBron James’ hometown) tomorrow in a game against the Cleveland Cavaliers.


Gabrielle Union is set to star in Chris Rock’s upcoming film “Finally Famous,” which Chris wrote and will be directing.

Gabby landed the female lead role and will play Chris Rock’s popular reality TV star fiancée. Gabby’s role will be trying to convince Chris’ character to have their wedding filmed on her reality TV show. Chris plays a comedian (how fitting) who wants to be taken seriously as a professional actor.

Rosario Dawson also landed a role as a journalist who ends up falling for Chris Rock’s character.

DO WE LOVE IT?! Porsha Williams’ “Flatline”

Posted: 17 Mar 2014 11:50 AM PDT


Porsha Williams is launching her music career with her first song, “Flatline.” Check out her new track inside…

“RHOA” star Porsha Williams has been on a roller coaster of emotions lately. First, she went through a nasty divorce from her ex-husband Kordell Stewart and virtually got next to nothing in the divorce settlement. Then, there were rumors she was dating the son of an African dictator, Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue, whom she confirmed she isn’t dating

Now she's dropping  her debut single “Flatline” (available on iTunes) from her upcoming five-song EP. 

Porsha explained to The Dish how the song came about:

I've been working on this song throughout the whole divorce and the whole season [of RHOA], mapping out my emotions and putting in things that I've gone through. It's really kind of a documentary of everything that I went through to become who I am now."

Check it below:


No word on when her EP is expected to drop.

We now know why Chris Brown was kicked out of rehab.  Find out what landed Chris in jail and get deets about Chief Keef's DUI inside.

Over the weekend, we told you about Chris Brown heading back to jail and getting kicked out of rehab.  Now...we know why.  According to TMZ, Chris violated 3 internal rules:

1. He was order to stay at least 2 feet away from women (he violated it by touching the elbows and hands of a woman).

2. He went on an authorized outing BUT refused to submit to a drug test when he returned.

3. He made harsh comments during a group session.

On another note, TMZ also reported that he "hooked up" with a woman at the facility (but that was not a factor in him getting the boot).

Now that we've cleared that up....he's still in jail and is expected in court today.


In other arrests.......
