T.I.’s wife Tiny and her bestie/hair stylist Shekinah Jo skipped into the studio to record their new “female anthem” of the summer. Sigh. Check out their remix to Atlanta rapper K. Camp’s “Cut Her Off” inside….
Along with their rumored new reality show, "Family Hustle" star Tiny and her homegirl Shekinah can now add rappers to their resumes. Seems Tiny is following in her husband’s footsteps after he released a remix to Jhene Aiko’s “The Worst” where he detailed their marital issues. He later said he didn’t mean for the track to get out and that he was only airing out temporary frustrations. Mmhmm…
The besties hit up the studio to record their new remix to Atlanta rapper K. Camp’s track “Cut Her Off” and renamed it to “Cut It Off.” The “it” they’re referring to? That D!
The duo raps about cutting off a dude with the quickness rapping,
Oh, the talented writings of Tiny & Shkeinah.
Ha! That Shekinah…

Kelly Rowland married Tim Witherspoon over the weekend and we have a first look at Kelly in her wedding dress. See the pic inside and Beyonce's Instagram pic from the ceremony.
According to US Weekly, Kelly Rowland reportedly married Tim Witherspoon during an intimate ceremony in Costa Rica on Saturday. Now....we (via Radar Online) have a first look at Kelly and Tim at the altar during the ceremony!
The intimate gathering was attended by a group of 30 that included Michelle Williams, Tina Knowles, as well as Beyonce and Solange (who arrived via private jet following the MET Gala aftermath).
Over on Instagram, Beyonce posted a pic of herself Saturday morning with the simple caption, "Good Morning." And she must have jetted straight back to NYC afterwards because she and Jay were courtside at the Nets game in Brooklyn that night.
Hmm.....it looks like she's on her way to athewedding (and possibly in a bridesmaid dress)!
Kelly previously said during interviews it would just be she and Tim and their parents at the ceremony. She must have had a change of heart...or was just throwing the paparazzi off her scent.
Yesterday, we spotted Kelly on the streets of New York heading to the 2014 American Ballet Theatre Opening Night Spring Gala in New York City. She was glowing in Lanvin...and wearing a ring!

Well, this is...awkward. French Montana, Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian all were seen arriving at Penthouse night club in West Hollywood last night. But, was Lamar REJECTED from entering? Deets and pics inside....
Khloe and her rapper boyfriend French are still going strong...despite them not even admitting to going anywhere relationship wise together. The twosome were spotted pulling up to the club last night in Khloe's Range Rover. French hopped out with his drink and his girl:
And then....Lamar Odom, Khloe's estranged/ex husband and the newest member of the NY Knicks, also pulled up to Penthouse nightclub:
Talk about awkward. Out of ALL the clubs in L.A., these three end up in the same one at the same time? Interesting.
Wonder if they chopped it up inside like the three amigos. Wouldn't be surprised...
But according to paparazzi source FAME/Flynet, Lamar was denied entry into the club due to French & Khloe partying it up inside. Not totally sure of the validity, but it seems plausible, especially since clubs don't want any drama with folks who are known to have some possible beef (remember the Chris Brown/Drake Greenhouse/WIP drama?).

What does Sal say is best thing to come out of the Lamar Sally/Sherri Shepherd divorce? Weight loss! Get the deets of Sal's "divorce diet" inside....
If you're looking to drop a few pounds before hitting the beach this summer, Lamar Sally has a helpful secret: get a divorce! In PEOPLE, the estranged husband of Sherri Shepherd (who has not said a word about their split) told the mag that he's lost "freakin' 50 pounds" since separating from "The View" co-host.
Knowing that their divorce is national news, he told the publication, "Use a slim picture...Not the fat one from six months ago … I'm on the divorce diet."
Though he would not give any details on why he and Sherri are splitting (he's already called their marriage/prenup a fraud), he did add, "I'm happy to be a father." You'll recall that we learned that the couple are expecting a baby boy in July via a surrogate and Lamar wants full legal and physical custody of the baby.

There's nothing like Sister love! And Beyonce is taking on the 500 rumors out there about the current state of her and Solange's relationship...by posting her own stash of old pics of the twosome. She even threw in her MET Ball pic with RiRi.
Check it inside...
While rumors of Solange removing all (but one) pics of her sister from her Instagram account (we still haven't 100% confirmed this as her new Saint Records IG never had several pics of her sister in the first place) are running rampant, Beyonce responded indirectly.
Early this AM, she took to her own Instagram account to post a few old pics of her and Solo during the good times. And she did so with a simple "Good morning".
It's clearly a statement about something. It could have been her way of telling the public that she and her sister are just fine despite the rumors saying otherwise, or if it was done to show her sister she still has love for her (if the rumors about them being estranged after Cartergate 2014 are true).
No one from Camp Knowles-Carter has said anything official about the big elevator fight between Jay Z and Solo or the fallout (other than making a point to confirm the falseness of that rumored tweet floating around allegedly from Solange).
But these pics may say enough:
Family and sisterhood are complicated things. Hope it all works out for the best, no matter the REAL scenario at hand here.
And in what seems to be an attempt at damage control, Beyonce posted the pic she and Rihanna snapped on the red carpet of the MET Ball. We can't recall the last time Beyonce EVER posted a pic with Rihanna on her own social media--in fact, it's probably never happened. But since Ri's name was dragged into one of the conspiracy theories about what the elevator fight was over...
In other Jay Z news, the rapper and entrepreneur opens his 40/40 Club in the Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International airport today. And he is no longer seeking to sue Chauncey Mahan for extortion over those $20 million Masters recordings of his. The Masters remain in custody of LAPD.

In the latest episode of "What Elevator Fight?!", Jay Z and Solange were reportedly spotted shopping it up in NYC for jewelry today...together. WTF?
Yet another addition to the conspiracy theory that centers around Solange having...issues...of her own that her family is quite used to by now. Jay acted as if all was fine and well just one day after the footage leaked of his sister-in-law flipping the hell out and attacking him on the elevator at The Standard Hotel. The rapper was reportedly shopping it up in Mr. Flawless jewelry store today with Solange herself.
And yes, they allegedly were calm and collected while doing so. It's as if everyone in the world knows about Cartergate 2014...except for the Carters.
That much talked about video footage shows what when down in the elevator outside the Boom Boom Room during a MET Ball afterparty. Solange kicked and screamed (at least it seemed like she was screaming something SERIOUS) and physically attacked her brother in law for unknown reasons. Bodyguard Julius even had to restrain Solange and make the elevator come to an emergency stop. So...why (and how) in the hell are these two acting so cool with each other just a few days later?
And this is the day after Jay and Beyonce were spotted courtside at the Nets game, as well.
Does this all play into the conspiracy theories about Solange's drinking habits? Or Solange having issues with her brother-in-law in relation to his alleged cheating ways that have yet to be proven? Could she have really just been defending her sister about something...and let the alcohol do WAY more talking than she wanted? Could she, who is KNOWN to have a slick mouth, have been popping back at jay over something slick HE said to her? Or does Solo flip out like this often for some reason...unprovoked? Surely seemed like it wasn't the first time, based on Jay & Bey's reactions.
All of these conspiracy theories were topped off by this latest story from the NY Daily News that essentially said Solange was throwing a temper tantrum over being told, by her bro-in-law--that she could not use HIS name to get her friends intot he after party. And, of course, Rihanna gets thrown in the mix.
The saga continues....
BONUS: M.I.A. posted this today, a brand new remix with Bey, a track called "BaddyGirl 2":

After Donald Sterling chastised Magic Johnson in an interview with CNN, the former NBA legend is speaking out against the blackballed owner’s comments. Find out what Magic had to say inside…
After vowing to not speak about Donald Sterling this week on Twitter, former NBA star Magic Johnson (pictured above while smiling and leaving The Four Seasons Hotel today) called up TMZ to respond directly to the recent foul comments made by Donald Sterling.
Last night, the full CNN interview with the former Clippers’ owner aired. Sterling bashed the former NBA player calling him "a man who slept around with different women and caught 'THE AIDS'. Yes, he said this, even after Anderson corrected him that Magic actually was diagnosed with HIV.
During the phone interview with TMZ, Magic touched on Sterling’s “AIDS” comment, his interaction with Sterling since the rant was released and he also reveals some of the philanthropic work he has done over the years.
"It's very disturbing. I think when you come on, No. 1 you should have your facts straight," said Magic Johnson.
Here are the highlights:
Magic also revealed how he has helped over 10,000 minority students attend college through his Magic Johnson Foundation, how he poured over $1 billion into urban America and he also has provided over 50,000 jobs to minorities. Way better than Sterling's 1 time $5000 donation to the L.A. chapter of the NAACP.
Magic also commented on providing computers to inner-city children and he’s overseen many job fairs and food drives.
Anderson Cooper will be airing his sit-down with Magic Johnson tonight on CNN at 8pm/EST. And if you missed Donald Sterling's full CNN interview, check it out here.

And in other Shondaland news, the drama series creator just inked a new four-year deal to remain with ABC studios through 2018. Nice!
And in other news...
Gucci Mane just copped a plea deal that will get him out of jail in 2016 after he was arrested in September for carrying a concealed weapon and a small amount of marijuana.
According to TMZ, the ATL rapper plead guilty to a gun possession charge as a convicted felon, which carries a 10 year sentence. Since he pleaded guilty, he was offered a plea agreement that will get him a “get out of jail’” card in 2016. He also faces coughing up a $250,000 fine.

After NBA Commissioner Adam Silver named Dick Parsons as the interim CEO of the Los Angeles Clippers, Donald Sterling sat down with Anderson Cooper for his very first interview since his racist rant against black people was aired publicly.
During the interview for Anderson's “AC360,” Donald berated former NBA player Magic Johnson for sleeping around with different women, contracting HIV back in 1991.

Kelly Rowland was seen posing for pics in NYC last night and she was glowing! Get the deets on what “might” have inspired that golden hue inside….
Kelly Rowland was spotted out and about in NYC last night and we could not deny that she looked RADIANT! The bombshell headed to the 2014 American Ballet Theatre Opening Night Spring Gala in a gorgeous Lanvin dress with a super high split to show off that killer bod of hers.
Perhaps the secret to her golden hue is her marriage to Tim Witherspoon. US Magazine reports that the two secretly wed in Costa Rica on May 9th with Beyonce and Solange in attendance (after the infamous MET Ball fight).
A source said, "It was a quick, simple ceremony -- only around 30 people." As we wait for an official statement, all we can say is CONGRATS Kelly!

Rihanna turned a recent LA Clippers mishap into an opportunity of giving for the underserved kids of the LAPD Cadet program. Find out how a cracked phone gave birth to a $25K donation inside….
For what its worth, there are some good things popping off for minorities at LA Clippers game. Last Saturday, Rihanna attempted to take a selfie with Los Angeles Police Commission President Steve Soboroff, during the Clippers vs. Oklahoma City Thunder game. And she mistakenly dropped and broke his cell phone.
According to TakePart, RiRi graciously offered to autograph the phone for an eBay auction to raise funds for the LAPD Cadet program and officers who’ve fallen in the line of duty. Also, she reportedly generously wrote a check for $25K.
Bidding for the phone starts at $250 with half of the winning bid money going to the cadets, and the other half earmarked for the Los Angeles Police Memorial Foundation to support the families of fallen officers.
