Drunk driver suspect identified in Jennifer Lopez, Leah Remini car crash

            This past Saturday in Malibu, Jennifer Lopez and Leah Remini were rear-ended in a car accident and the suspect has been finally identified as Robert J. Reitz of Las Vegas. The 53-year old suspect Reitz was thrown in jail for a misdemeanor after the drunken accident and was released from jail early Sunday on $15,000 bail. The 45-year old singer Lopez was with 44-year old actress Remini in J. Lo’s new car, when Reitz’s small pickup truck plowed into them on the Pacific Coast Highway and jetted off. The Bronx singer took it to Instagram and posted a photo with the “King of Queens” actress and captioned, “Sitting at a light, Riding high right before some drunk fool rear ended us in my new whip!!!” Luckily, no injuries were reported and Lopez later wrote on social media, “Thank God everyone ok!!! #GRATEFUL #THANKYOUGOD #DontdrinkandDrive!!!! #cursedthatfoolout #theBronxcameout #dontmesswithmycocnuts #mamabear #leahstayedcalm #thatwasweird,” 

Chris Brown’s mom request help from therapist to protect her son from gangs

            Does Chris Brown’s mother worry her son is in peril? TMZ has reported that girlfriend Karrueche Tran and Joyce Hawkins are worried about the star singer’s affiliation with the Bloods gang. Brown’s mom Hawkins has approached her son’s therapist about the issue, and is worried that “[he] is not only compromising his safety by promoting gangs, he’s also ruining his career.” It is believed that Chris Brown thinks it is “cool” to display support for the Bloods, by flashing their gang signs in public, and doesn’t clearly recognize the dangerous risks that could occur from being affiliated with them. Last week, the Los Angeles police department asked local clubs to ban the R&B singer and his entourage because it is known that the celeb is an inducement for starting trouble. A law enforcement source has stated, “When Brown and his people show, we know what’s going to happen. It’s a headache for us.”

A display of high ego from Ariana Grande

            The famous pop star Ariana Grande has gotten worse with her diva behavior. Earlier this month, there were multiple sources saying that the 21-year old celebrity singer wished death upon a group of loving fans while visiting a Manhattan radio station this summer. Recently, after Grande performed on “Saturday Night Live” this past weekend, she arrived at the Out hotel on 42nd St in the city and performed for a crowd of roughly 3,000 people. The star singer once again made her diva character come out at the hotel. One insider reported, “Before she got there she made security clear out the entire lobby. Even if you were a guest at the hotel you had to clear out. No one could sit in the lobby, but she came in the back. She took up a unisex bathroom with her mother and father and put two bodyguards outside.” Grande was overheard requesting hotel staff if they could possibly get rid of the paparazzi posted outside the front door. A second source stated, “The hotel had been cleared from 1:30 a.m. on. Ariana also took over a huge conference room and turned it into a dressing room. Basically, 3,000 square feet of hotel space was hers. You had to show your hotel key to get anywhere.”

Jason Derulo discusses on split with Jordin Sparks

            Recently, Jason Derulo revealed to the public about his breakup with Jordin Sparks to clear up all the ridiculous rumors. Derulo explained to ABC News that he felt it was necessary to speak out in order to disprove the “bogus and irresponsible lies being reported by insensitive media outlets.” Derulo stated, “I spent three great years with Jordin and she is one of the most amazing people that I have ever met. But as in all relationships there are ups and downs, and at this time we have decided to amicably part. Infidelity, cheating or deceit played no part in our relationship or our break-up, and I hope that people respect our privacy as we move forward with our lives.” On looking at Sparks side of the break up, she seems to have no disappointments about it. On Jordin’s Twitter, she expressed her thoughts and tweeted, “Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”

It wasn’t immediately visible if Jay gave away more pregnancy hints during the show, but he did expose to the crowd that Blue Ivy was conceived in the City of Light. Jay Z announced, “We love Paris.

Ariana Grande discusses that her songs were ‘too mature, too sexual’ at age 14

            Ariana Grande may have started her big career on Nickelodeon, but she’s demonstrated to be wise beyond her age. In the October Marie Claire cover story, the 21-year old singer said, “ I was 14 years old and ready to make an R&B album. I was like, ‘Where is that Mary J. Blige collab? Where is that Natasha Bedingfield writing session? Where is my session with India.Arie? I’m ready. Let’s go.” Back then, Grande’s mother wasn’t so prepared after listening to one of her daughter’s songs. Ariana told the magazine, “I wrote this song called ‘Higher,’ and the lyrics were too sexual, too mature. My mom was like, ‘This is a great song, but damn, you’re too young for this.’” Flashing forward to the present, in “The Way,” she was on the course of separating her true self from the Nickelodeon character that she played in the hit teen series, “Sam & Cat.” Ariana stated, “We did that with ‘The Way.’ I dyed my hair back to brown. I made out with a rapper in the video. I made the point I wanted to make. And I was excited to do so after so many years of pretending to be somebody else in front of a lot of people.”

 Robin Thicke reveals to being ‘high’ while promoting, recording ‘Blurred Lines’

             Robin Thicke’s hit “Blurred Lines” controversy has gotten blurrier. Thicke revealed that he was high on alcohol and drugs when the hit song was written. When Robin was asked if he was present during the creation of the hit, he stated, “I was high on Vicodin and alcohol when I showed up at the studio. My recollection is when we made the song….I wanted to be more involved than I actually was by the time, nine months later, it became a huge hit and I wanted credit.” In the deposition, Thicke admitted, “The reality is…Pharrell had the beat and he wrote almost every single part of the song.” The 37-year old celebrity singer said he “had a alcohol and drug problem for the year” of 2013 and attended most of his interviews high, including “Oprah’s Next Chapter” in October. These issues eventually caused his wife of 8 years, Paula Patton, to end their marriage. 

Miley Cyrus in some trouble for twerking on Mexican flag in concert

            Miley Cyrus is causing up some controversy over in Mexico. The 21-year old celebrity singer could face a fine or a short jail sentence after one of her dancers stuck a Mexican flag on her backside and danced during her performance in Monterrey in the northern state of Nuevo Leon on Tuesday. The Mexican state legislature requested that the country’s federal government penalize Cyrus. Local lawmaker Francisco Trevino stated, “She or her team could be fined up to the equivalent of around $1,200 or be detained for 36 hours.” There is a video floating around that displays Cyrus wearing a prosthetic butt and twerking on the Mexican flag. If Miley Cyrus gets charged, she wouldn’t be the first singer to face charges like this. Back in 2008, singer Paulina Rubio was charged for posing naked and wrapped in the country’s flag.

Big Sean claims he has great ‘chemistry’ with Ariana Grande

             Recently, Big Sean seemed to confess a few things about his former lover Naya Rivera in his new single “I Don’t F**k with You.” Now, he’s moving forward and talking about the so-called “chemistry” he possesses with singer Ariana Grande. The 26-year old celebrity rapper told MTV News, “[We] make a lot of music together and the chemistry between me and her when we work is great. We got more in the works, too. I feel like her voice is crazy, [just] that big voice that comes out of her is insane. I was probably one of the first people to ever tweet about her music. We’ve been friends for years before anything else.” So far, Ariana and Big Sean have worked together on songs like “Best Mistake” and “Right There.” Big Sean also mentioned that fans would have to wait patiently before hearing new music from the two. He stated, “You’ve got to wait and see. I can’t spill the beans.” 

Kim Kardashian confesses she and Kanye are ‘trying’ for a second baby

            Look out North West; there may be an East or South coming your way. On Australia’s “Today” show on Monday, Kim Kardashian exposed to the public that she and her husband Kanye West are attempting to have a second baby. The 33-year old reality star stated, “I hope so. You know, we’re trying. So I guess it’s all in God’s hands. I think [motherhood] has changed me so much. Everything’s put into perspective and nothing really matters besides spending time with your family and only doing the things that are really important to you.” In May, Kanye and Kim got married and brought in their first child together, North West, last summer. Kardashian has been clear about wanting to add to her family, although she is “dreading” being pregnant again. Earlier this month, Kim Kardashian told Ellen DeGeneres, “My sister Kourtney looks so beautiful pregnant, she has the best style, but I couldn’t figure it out. I had a medically really tough, really challenging pregnancy, but it is so worth it. I’ll go for two. But then again I have so many siblings and I love it, they’re my best friends and I would love that for my kids. So I’m going to do two and see how it goes. I don’t think six, but maybe three or four—— I go back and forth.”
