A woman who claims to be Michael Jackson’s illegitimate love child — conceived when MJ was a minor — has filed legal documents claiming there was a diabolical plot to cover up her existence … involving murder, abduction and Diana Ross’ sister.
The alleged MJ spawn — Mocienne Petit Jackson — has filed documents with L.A. County Superior Court claiming she will surely be in line for a serious inheritance check … if a judge will give the go-ahead on a DNA test.
Here’s the story — MPJ claims back in 1975, 17-year-old Michael Jackson secretly impregnated her mother Barbara … who happens to be Diana Ross’ sister.
MPJ claims when she was 9 years old, Katherine Jackson hatched a plan to “abduct” MPJ and send her to Belgium to protect Michael’s “reputation.” She claims all 7 of her abductors were later murdered.
Now MPJ — who currently lives in the Netherlands — has decided to come forward with her story … so she can “formally claim my part of my father’s inheritance.” She also wants custody of MJ’s kids so she can give them a “more normal life.”
MPJ also claims she was diagnosed with Vitiligo … so, there’s that.
Calls to Diana Ross, Barbara Ross and MJ’s camp have not been returned.
On August 24, Usher releases the follow up to his successful Raymond vs. Raymond, the Versus EP. The Jay-Z featured track has been talked about for minute now though. Earlier today, the radio rip of the Polow Da Don produced track made its rounds on the Internet. Here’s the explicit version. Jay continues his run of impressive guest verses with another one here (and another Illuminati mention for those who care about that stuff) andEster Dean plays substitute until the final version with Ciara is released.
For those wondering what hot toddy is,it’s a drink (cider) that is severed hot and mixed with alcohol. Depending on who you ask, many believe it helps cure the cold and/or flu.

According to Variety, pop princess Rihanna will make her feature film debut in Battleship, an upcoming big-budget action film based on—you guessed it—the Hasbro board game. No word on what role the Bajan chanteuse will play; though she’ll likely be the love interest of either co-star Alexander Skarsgard (True Blood) or Taylor Kitsch (Friday Night Lights), I secretly hope she’ll be a gun-toting badass in the vein of Ripley or Sarah Connor.
The film is being directed by Peter Berg (Hancock) and will be shot on the Hawaiian isle of Oahu in September or October.
Rihanna is currently sitting on top of the Billboard Hot 100 with “Love the Way You Lie,” her collaboration with Eminem from the rapper’s hit album Recovery. Perhaps we’ll get a glimpse of Ri-Ri’s acting chops in the song’s accompanying video, which should premiere sometime this week.

This February, Christina Milian gave birth to her daughter, Violet. She was recently spotted in a park working off the weight she gained during the pregnancy. I should say worked it off - past tense. Clearly, there isn’t an ounce that isn’t in the right places. Makes you wonder what The-Dream was thinking when he divorced her.
Oh yeah, it’s back to that story. Last week, Christina Milian filed papers in a Georgia court asking that a judge throw out their divorce papers.
In a reverse spin of The-Dream’s claim that their marriage quietly ended just six months after the ceremony, Christina Milian says their bondwasn’t irretrievably broken. Actually, the recent discovery of The-Dream’s relationship with another woman revealed that he was having an affair - that’s what deaded the marriage.
I hear that and think, cha-ching, ‘someone wants a couple of checks.’ Could be. You know what? Within reason, I don’t blame her. In the papers filed with the court, Christina Milian says that she waived any alimony rights. However, she wasn’t in the right frame of mind to make the decision, because it was nine days before she gave birth.
Think about that. The-Dream handing a pen and divorce papers to Christina, while she’s sitting there with a bulging belly, on the verge of popping out their kid. Even if their problems were sparked by Christina going Keke Wyatt on him, you would think he could wait until - at minimum - her water had broken. That’s a dirt bag move.
And again I ask, what was The-Dream thinking when he divorced her?
Maybe, during the course of a day, Christina Milian is a complete pain the ass - extra annoying. I think it’s simpler than that: The-Dream is going Stevie, you know, blind.
Evidence has revealed there is nothing that couldn’t have been worked out between them.
I give you..

Yes! TI & Tiny are going to be getting married!! FINALLY! The wedding will be taking place in Miami at a private estate. Below is the "story" printed on the invitation. As much as I think they are an odd couple i wish the them the best!! The wedding is taking place on the 31st.
What the Wedding Invitation says:
Once upon a time, the King of the South was strolling through the mall and locked eyes on with a Tiny princess who’s Xscape was to find love. His swag was undeniable and her unconditional love was what he was seeking. He approached her with his charm and after conversation he walked away knowing that this princess would one day become his queen. His love is the sunshine that keeps me warm, she’s the rainbow after the storm. His love gave me wings and has set me free and where ever she is that’s where I want to be. He’s so understanding and it feels so good. She stood with me through troubled times as a strong woman should. He takes anything that’s wrong and makes it alright. And for the rest of your life Tameka, you can have whatever you like! Just like a page out of a fairytale this storybook romance comes true.
Teairra Mari sits down with Honey Magazine and discusses everything from the Rihanna comparisons, to her reaction to hearing that BET may have banned her “Sponsor” video.
Her new 7 song EP titled Sincerely Yours hits stores August 17th
Alicia Keys’ Former Management: Rip Off Reports Untrue, “We Never Had A Contract” Read more: Alicia Keys’ Former Management: Rip Off Reports Untrue,
Earlier today the New York Post published an article stating the reason Alicia Keys split with her long-time manager Jeff Robinson was because he ripped her off. According to their sources, Jeff had been charging Alicia 25% commission and upward of 33% during the beginning stages of her career. The norm for a manager is between 15-20%. Their source also goes on to say “Swizz Beatz definitely played a huge part in killing him off. She got smart — and got a smart boyfriend — after years of people around her telling her she was crazy to let this continue to happen”
We placed a call over to Alicia Keys MBK Entertainment and was told:
“That story is 100% false. Jeff Robinson was like a father figure to Alicia Keys. They never had a contract. It was a huge deal because Jeff loves her like she was his own kid! This whole article reeks of damage control and its obvious. How can you rip someone off when you don’t have a contract and they can walk away whenever they want?”
They also went on to point out that Jeff Robinson has been her manager for almost 15 years and if she was getting ripped off, she would have walked away from the relationship a long time ago.
As previously reported, sources claim that Swizz Beatz played a role in Alicia firing her entire glam squad and he has also been taking an active role as her manager. When we reached out to Swizz Beatz he claimed those rumors are “not true”. “I don’t have time to fire anybody. I’m super busy working on a million things.” He also added “People must accept change and move on.”
And here we go again, another potential hit record featuring Nicki Minaj. This time, they're keeping it in the family with Cash Money artist, Jay Sean.
"2012" is nothing more and nothing less than a party record for dance clubs all over the world. Like an updated version of Prince's "1999", Jay and Nicki are singing and rapping around the idea that in two years, the world is going to end and therefore one must party like the world is going to end. Nicki, for all the work she gives to other people's songs, sounds particularly excited to be on this record, and as always we're more than excited to hear her. Her rapid flow is as crisp as ever, even though it's light on the quoteworthy lines we've grown used to. Still, this song right here (this song right here!) a smash. All day.

M.I.A. Had some choice words about Oprah and particularly Lady Gaga. This isn't the first time she has vocally expressed her opinions about the "Fame Monster" This is what M.I.A. recently had to say.
‘…Oprah seemed like she was giving me the cold shoulder. She was with Iman (Bowie). Iman was always dancing with me, hugging and kissing me, but Oprah seemed really pissed off with me. Also she made this huge speech at the ball praising Lady Gaga and about how she (Lady Gaga) is helping Americans to be the best of themselves. There’s millions of other Americans who represent that for me. Is (it) about numbers? About how much you’re selling? Is it truly about the journey? Because (Lady Gaga’s) journey isn’t that difficult: to go from the fucking Upper East Side to a fucking performing arts school and on to a stage at the museum of fucking wherever. That journey’s about four miles.’
She is sounding a bit sour at this point. I am a fan of both artists and they both have unique sounds and I don't think there is any need to hate.
Swizz Beatz On The Wedding Date
Well its not this weekend!” Swizz Beatz says. ”But you know, were excited. Our union is amazing. Our union is pure. Our union is positive no matter what people say or what people think, time will tell everything and you know, silence is the best thing. We just keep it private and we do our thing and just have fun with it.
On Planning The Wedding
“Yeah, you know, I’m a planner!” he tells OK!. ”I like getting into the detail of things. I’m inspired by fashion, I’m inspired by art, I’m inspired by architectural things so [I like] being involved with the wedding. I’m not the person who sits back and goes, okay, well I’ll just show up. I’m actually spearheading certain plans but it’s a nice blend, a nice partnership.”
On The Wedding Not Being A Gimmick
“Just an amazing day,” he says. “Very intimate. It’s not a superstar wedding. It’s not a gimmicky wedding. It’s a true bond of love, you know, that’s not based on having the most famous person sitting there while you’re doing it. It’s about having the closest people who really understand you as a person and that really have love for you. So it’s a small situation.”
On the New Baby
“I’m very excited about that! Children, you know, they’re a blessing and I’m very excited.” And his older children feel the same way. “They’re excited as well. We keep the energy positive. Everything surrounding kids should always be positive. That’s the number one rule.”

Treating fans to a brand new music video, Christina Aguilera debuted her latest creation in "You Lost Me" on Thursday morning (July 22).
From her recently released Bionic album, the singer/actress showed off her vocals in the power ballad while offering up a tamer, softer look.
The video release comes amidst questions as to whether her latest album release was blundered.
With Christina having pushed back her accompanying tour, sales were rather low despite the album receiving high acclaim from critics/fans.
According to TMZ, The Dream filed for divorce in February, just 9 days before Christina Milian gave birth to their daughter Violet. The court documents state that the marriage was “”Irretrievably broken” and there is no hope for reconciliation. The document also states that the two, who were married on September 4, 2009, separated prior to the divorce filing and are currently living in a “bona fide state of separation”.I guess my theory of this being a huge publicity stunt is almost out of the window but best believe someone ordered up them paparazzi photos and it might have been a scorned wife
Now that we’ve learned that the Dream filed for divorce before he was caught “so-called” cheating, Is he now off the hook? Click the jump to check out the divorce papers
