Jermaine Dupri’s Home Avoids Foreclosure

Jermaine Dupri has managed to avoid foreclosure. WSBTV.com is reporting that the hip-hop producer’s northwest Atlanta mansion was set for auction earlier this month, but the sale was called off at the last moment. The law firm in charge of the auction did not say why it was canceled. Suntrust Bank first started foreclosure on a loan of more than two-point-five-million-dollars. According to the Georgia Department of Revenue, Jermaine owes almost 494-thousand-dollars in back taxes for 2007. He also reportedly owes a company 12-thousand-dollars for managing his house, and another 14-thousand-dollars for unpaid property taxes on another piece of property.

After bringing out Alicia Keys a few weeks back, Prince kept the surprises going during his 21 nights at The Forum on Thursday by bringing out Whitney Houston for “Musicology”. It didn’t stop there though. Below, Whitney assists Chaka Khan for “Tell Me Something Good”.

Paula Patton was recently on The Chesea Lately Show and she addressed all the concerns we were thinking when it came to her blonde hair blue eyed baby boy. Initially when I saw her and Robing Thickes son I was sure the baby was accidentally switched at birth. When you have a biracial child especially of African-American decent the childs hair is curly, dark, and has a little kink to it. Nevertheless are the eyes going to be blue, but maybe light brown, hazel, or green. But not Paula’s baby.

“He looks just like my husband…He’s blonde, he has blue eyes. It’s crazy. Everybody’s like did you have anything to do with this, they think we’ve like adopted a Russian child. Everyday I’m like he’s gonna get blacker. The tan is coming in, the hair is curlier…I’m telling you. Everyday I’m like, I threaten to put baby oil on him and set him out in the sun…I know child services is calling me right now. You know blackness takes time.”
