After boxing champ Floyd Mayweather defeated Marcos Maidana, rapper French Montana and his rumored boo Khloe Kardashian hit up Diddy’s fight after party at The Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino on Saturday.

Before making their way to the after party, the couple met up with Khloe’s little sister Kylie Jenner (who has been partying with Justin Bieber in Vegas this weekend) along with Meek Mill for a late dinner at 35 Steaks + Martinis steakhouse.

French, Khloe and Meek then trekked to Diddy’s after party for a night of drinks and laughs as they celebrated Floyd’s win:

French took the stage alongside Diddy and a slew of others to get the crowd turnt up.

And the Hip-Hop mogul cleaned up nice as he posed on the carpet for his event:

Diddy recently announced he would be interested in owning the Los Angeles Clippers if Donald Sterling is forced to sell the team. He tweeted, "I will always be a Knicks fan, but I am a business man. #DiddyBuyTheClippers #NameYourPrice”

Meek recently lost a civil suit against the Philadelphia Police Department. The Dreamchasers rapper and his entourage were placed in handcuffs after a police officer claimed he smelled marijuana during a traffic stop. Meek and his crew were held for 10 hours causing him to miss his flight to his debut album’s release party back in 2012.

And Kendrick Lamar (looking a bit rugged) was also in attendance for the celebration:

 photo onlygab3.jpg

She told the mag, "Well, it will be smaller than the one in the movie, but it's definitely not toned down, per the wishes of my groomzilla.  D's very involved in every detail. My dude is having a princess moment. Me? I did the wine tasting, and I've said yes to the dress. In fact, I've said yes to a few of them. That's the joy of getting married to a man who loves clothes and wardrobe changes: You can have more than one dress."

We hope to see D Wade on Gabby's arm tonight at the Met Ball....stay tuned.

WHAT’S BEEF?! Tamar Braxton & K. Michelle's SHADE Throwing SHOWDOWN

Posted: 05 May 2014 07:56 AM PDT

 photo tamkm.jpg

Just when we thought all was well between R&B singers Tamar Braxton and K. Michelle, all hell breaks loose…again. Last night, Tamar & K. Michelle took their beef to social media with Kermit the Frog insults and who’s REALLY singing when they perform. Read their social media shade throwing battle inside…

R&B singers Tamar Braxton and K. Michelle are back at throwing epic shade and insults via their social media accounts. We’re not exactly sure how this new “Twitter Beef” came about but it led to an evening full of insults and a war of words.

You’ll recall these two have never really gotten along. The ladies had seemingly called a truce when they both dropped their studio albums. But things went left again when Tamar hit up "The Arsenio Hall Show" making a comment about K. Michelle and Kmart, which ignited yet another social media spat between the two divas.

Last night, K first took her Twitter account and posted a tweet about making music and not war:

 photo kmtweet.png

Now, we all know Tamar is currently touring the States on her Love & War tour but K’s comment could have still left room for one to think she could have possibly been referring to something else…that is until she posted this to her Instagram:

 photo kmIG.jpg

She captioned, “Lord, please keep me In your loving arms. I've been good. I've shown support. Haven't bothered anybody. I even went to watch the new movie "Muppets most wanted" and Miss Piggy continues to mess with me. I just wanna sing. No more jumping gates, I even do yoga now. I'm trying”

Of course, Tamar and her “Tamartians” had plenty to say about K:

WHERE ARE THEY NOW?: Lark Voorhies RESURFACES In Hollywood With EXTRA Powdery Makeup

Posted: 05 May 2014 07:30 AM PDT

 photo larkv2.jpg

Lark Voorhies should seriously consider firing the makeup artist who did this to her. Or if she did this to herself, she should probably lay off on the concealer. The former child star was spotted in a rare appearance out in Hollywood recently and all we can focus on is that extra powdery bleach-like makeup. See the former “Black IT Girl” candids inside…

 photo larkv5.jpg

Ahh…the good old days. Remember Lisa Turtle from “Saved By The Bell?” She was the chick we all wanted to be like back in the day. Nowadays…not so much.

We don’t see Ms. Turtle much, but over the weekend, “Saved By The Bell” alum Lark Voorhies made a rare appearance in Hollywood to hit up the Where We Started movie premiere.

The 40-year-old actress was all smiles as she strolled the streets of Hollywood but we can’t help but notice this awful makeup. This isn’t the first time we’ve spotted Lark with a questionable face beat. She did an interview a few years ago that had us confused about WHY her make-up looked so horrid and why she seemed to be so spacey and out of it.

 photo larkv1.jpg

Soon after, Lark’s mother revealed the child star was diagnosed with bipolar disease. Not sure if it’s the disease talking or what, but Lark made claims she isn’t suffering from anything.

 photo larkv3.jpg

Former WWE Superstar Shad Gaspard (above) didn’t seem to mind as he posed it up alongside Lark outside of the venue.

 photo larkshad.png

He also posted a pic of them on his IG with the caption, “Last night at the premiere of "Where we started" on a nice outing with Lark Voorhies aka Lisa Turtle on #SavedByTheBell She looks great and is staying in shape for some big things.”

No word on if these two are a couple or not. But if they do decide to start hooking up, we hope he keeps it 100 with her about this heavy, extra powdery makeup.

"RHOA" REUNION HIGHLIGHTS: Phaedra BLASTS Kenya's Sperm Bank Trips, Apollo Wants Kenya To Place Money On His "Books" + Porsha Alleges Kordell ABUSED Her On "WWHL"

Posted: 05 May 2014 07:01 AM PDT

 photo rhosdjdjere.png 

The three part RHOA Reunion concluded last night with a nasty standoff between Kenya Moore and Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida.  Also, Porsha Williams appeared on "WWHL" where she told Andy Cohen she'd apologized to Kenya...if she received one as well. 

The explosive RHOA reunion went out with a bang last night with Phaedra Parks confronting Kenya Moore about her "unwanted" friendship with her husband Apollo Nida (which included one of the nastiest "reads" in RHOA history).  Also, Apollo blew off Andy's questios about his legal woes while NeNe and Kandi engaged in a shouting match over some nasty coments NeNe aimed at Mama Joyce.  

Phaedra Parks checks Kenya Moore:

Apollo addresses his identity theft charges and says Kenya needs him for a storyline:

Kandi calls out NeNe for saying something negative about Mama Joyce:



On "WWHL".....

Porsha Williams (wearing a Roland Mouret dress and Christian Louboutin shoes) got booted from the RHOA Reunion after her fight with Kenya Moore, but Andy Cohen invited her back on "WWHL" to have her say.  

During the interesting chat Porsha promoted "Flatline" (which she performed in NYC over the weekend) and alleged that Kordel abused her and said the Kenya fight escalted because of the props.  She also said she'd be willing to offer Kenya an apology...if she received one as well.

VIDEO FAB: Porsha Williams' "Flatline" Video

Posted: 04 May 2014 02:43 PM PDT

 photo ScreenShot2014-05-04at51528PM_zps1d6a3812.png

Porsha Williams is still trying to pursue her singing career.  And she seems to be making art imitate life in her brand new video for her single "Flatline".  Go down memory lane with an abusive relationship that seemed like the "picture perfect life"...

In Porsha Williams' new "Flatline" video, directed by Christian Strickland, the "RHOA" star is channeling something that seems quite familiar--a relationship with an older man that went from glittery gold and riches to abusiveness.

 photo ScreenShot2014-05-04at51313PM_zps8916d4fb.png

In the video, her leading man is ironically named Cordell Moore.  And she relives how the twosome met and how great their relationship was in the beginning--nice cars, a mansion and more.  And then it quickly went left with physical abuse and more.

Check it below. 

Porsha perfromed this track for the first time in NYC on Friday.  Check it.

FIGHT NIGHT: Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, 2 Chainz & MORE Watch Floyd Mayweather DEFEAT Marcos Maidana In CLOSE Fight

Posted: 04 May 2014 08:41 AM PDT

 photo fm3.png

It was a close one but Pretty Boy Floyd still remains undefeated after beating Marcos Maidana in a majority decision. Floyd Mayweather Jr. brought the circus to the ring as he made his grand entrance into the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

See Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, 2 Chainz and other celebs cheer on Floyd inside…

 photo fm1.png

Floyd Mayweather Jr., along with Money Team members Justin Bieber and Lil Wayne, trekked to the ring as Weezy performed his new single, “Believe Me” for the first time. “Believe Me” is said to be the lead single off of Weezy’s Tha Carter V album (which he claims will be his final album).

It was a spectacle of an entrance as clowns, jugglers, dancers and more entered the arena before the Money Team made their way to the boxing ring.

 photo waynejustin.png

Floyd defeated Marcos after landing 54% of his total punches thrown. Marcos threw half as many punches, landing 26% of punches thrown.

 photo 001MayweathervsMaidanaIMG_2273.jpg

Marcos felt he was robbed saying, “I definitely think I won this fight,” said Maidana. “Floyd did not fight like the man I expected him to. He made me change the gloves. I had bigger gloves and everything and I still gave him a fight.”

 photo 002MayweathervictoryIMG_2419.jpg

"It was a tough, competitive fight," Mayweather said. "I gave the fans what the fans wanted to see. Normally, I box and move. Finally, I was in a tough, competitive fight. Tonight, I wanted to stand there and fight and give the fans their money's worth."

Tyrese was there to cheer on Floyd as he dapped up Lil Wayne in the ring.

Tiny and her homegirl Shekinah Jo were running late and almost missed the fight. But they made it just in time.

Adrian Broner was victorious last night defeating Carlos Molina with a unanimous decision. But it was what he said after the fight that had everyone up in arms.

Talking to Showtime's Jim Gray after his win, Adrian made the ridiculous comment, "I've beaten Africans and I just beat the f--- out of a Mexican"
