Mary will never live this down.. Hot 97 has a competition going once called.Chicken Idol. They will have a celebrity come in and basically resinging Mary’s song. You have to vote who does it the best.. Yandy and them toddler teeth better get the hell on. She know she can’t go toe to toe with Mary Janiqua Blige.

So Amber Rose must have been so correct when she made jabs at Kim Kardashian in her interviews. You guys said she was just hating! I got to admit yall women know when we be out on the prowl! How long yall think this will last?  Reported by my buddies at TMZ , Kanye West have been dating for roughly two weeks, but it’s a relationship 8 years in the making … TMZ has learned.

According to our sources, the two have been friends since 2004 — and have flirted on-and-off — but the timing was never right to pursue a relationship … until now.

We’re told both sides always felt a spark, but they NEVER acted inappropriately while Kanye was with Amber Rose … or while Kim was with Kris Humphries.

In fact, we’re told Kim was recently kicking around the idea of reconciling with Reggie Bush … but after hanging out with him in Miami a few weeks ago, decided the two weren’t compatible anymore.

Kim finally reconnected with Kanye in Paris when she attended his fashion show … and shortly after that, both sides decided to “give dating a shot.”

And so far, we’re told Kim has been super-impressed with the rapper … who pulled one hell of a surprise when they hit up FAO Schwarz in NYC a few days ago.

Sources say Kanye made some calls and had an entire floor of the toy store roped off so they could get a private lesson from a guy who taught them how to play “Chopsticks” on the over-sized piano featured in the movie “Big.”

Kim’s currently back in L.A. … but we’re told she plans to get her ass back to NYC as soon as possible to see him.

Mannnn! How in the heezy can anyone fix their mouths to say “All I got is 6.45 Million dollars to my name? And then file for Bankruptcy! If he is dead broke then I am cremated dead broker! According to our good friends at TMZ Future NFL Hall-of-Famer Warren Sapp has filed for bankruptcy … claiming he’s racked up millions of dollars in debts … but worst of all, dude claims he LOST his 2002 Super Bowl ring.

Sapp — who played in the NFL for 12 years — just filed for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy in Florida … and in the papers he gives a full rundown of his dire financial situation.

According to the docs, Sapp owes more than $6.7 million to various creditors … including hundreds of thousands of dollars in child support payments and alimony to at least 4 different baby mamas.

Among the debts, Sapp says he owes $853k to the IRS for 2006 and another $89k for 2010. Sapp says he also owes $2,858 in medical bills for “Corrective Speech and Language Therapy.”

Sapp says he only has $6.45 million to his name … and lists all of his assets in the documents … which include:

— 240 pairs of Jordan sneakers and sandals
— Large Nude women painting
— Lion skin rug (female – lioness)
— Nike golf clubs
— De Grisogono watch (scratch on crystal, nicks and scratches on band)
— A boxing glove signed by Muhammad Ali

But most interestingly, Sapp notes he has LOST two of his most treasured and valuable possessions — the 2002 Super Bowl ring he won with the Tampa Bay Bucs (example below) and the National Championship ring he won with the Miami Hurricanes.
In the docs, Sapp also lists his current salary as an analyst for the NFL Network as $45k per month … $540k per year. Sapp says his deal with the NFL Network expires in August and he’s not sure if the network will extend his deal.

Apparently the Singers and Rappers have all gotten together & formed an alliance that after they make it big they will all say to heck with property taxes! Added to the Lil Bow Wow, Wesley Snipes, etc etc list of not paying taxes is South Central LA’s own Montell Jordan according to our friends at TMZ. All the gang bangers forgetting about the drive-by isn’t nearly as bad as Montell Jordan forgetting to pay his taxes … to the tune of $627,987.06, this according to docs obtained by TMZ.

The “This Is How We Do It” star owes Uncle Sam back taxes for the years 1999-2001. According to the Federal Tax Lien filed against Jordan, the government first filed a lien against him in 2004 — but since he still hasn’t paid up, they refiled it last month. Can you say? What happened to the accountant?

The IRS is looking for their money ASAP and if they don’t get it, they can go after his property in court.

A rep for the singer tells TMZ the government has to get their groove on before they can get paid. Just kidding! That was some more TMZ humorsarcasmn.

Theraflu says its not lending its support to Kanye West’s new single of the same name.


A rep for the cold medicine company tells TMZ that they don’t “endorse or approve” of Kanye’s use of their name and image.

Theraflu didn’t say they were planning any legal action, but did add that their product is relied on by “millions of consumers” to treat “cold and flu symptoms.”


Theraflu isn’t the only organization that is taking issue with Kanye’s latest track. During the song, the hip-hop star reignites his feud with the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals by rapping, quote, “Tell PETA my mink is draggin’ on the floor.” READ MORE
