No, that headline is not a typo. In true baller fashion, Jay-Z showed his wife Beyoncé that money is no object where love is concerned. Word on the street—and by street, we mean Mediatakeout—has Hov spending $20 million to get Bey a prime piece of private property in the Florida Keys for her 29th birthday. It’s reported the tropical island is 12.5 acres and about 2.5 miles offshore. Oh, and the island’s only accessible via helicopter or yacht. Ah, yeah. He’s hoping she celebrated that gift with the special diamond-encrusted whip and lingerie Lady Gagy gave Beyoncé.
MUST BE NICE!
Mashonda’s holding nothing back. I won’t even try to explain. Just read the latest from Sister 2 Sister magazine. Oh boy, I wonder what magic A. Keys PR will pull off this time.
S2S: Were you guys dating other people before he got with Alicia? Were you guys separated?
Mashonda: We were married. Sleeping in the same bed and having sex every night while he was seeing Alicia. Okay? It was an affair. 100 percent. I don’t know why people want to change that rule so much. We had just had a kid, for crying out loud. Our child was 8 months. I found out about Alicia two days before my son turned 1. They had been doing their thing for months before that.
S2S: You said that Alicia wanted your baby to call her “mommy”. How do you know that she said that?
Mashonda: My son told me.
S2S: And you told her that is not going to happen?
Mashonda: Yeah. I sent her an email and asked her to please respect what I am to him and it’s not right for her to think that is okay. She never replied. She doesn’t reply to me. She has never given me that respect.
S2S: What does Swizz say?
Mashonda: He said okay, he would stop it. He wouldn’t let her do it.
S2S: That would be kind of confusing for the child.
Mashonda: Oh, it is. It is so unfair to the child. I have been in contact with the little girls mother (the woman in England who has Swizz’s baby). She’s a young girl. She’s a spiritual girl. She apologized to me… I don’t even judge her. I can’t. She’s totally different than the other one. This other one knew. Alicia knew about me 100 percent. Swizz introduced me at prior events. They were signed to the same record company. She knew. And I emailed her and asked her to stop doing what she was doing and she disregarded me. Just like she disregarded me when I asked her to not have my son thinking it was okay to call her “umi.” You’re not his umi. You just met my son.
S2S: “Umi” is like “mommy”?
Mashonda: “Umi” means “mommy” in Arabic. I’m like no. And then after I spoke to the lady in London, she told me that she tried to get her daughter to call her “umi” as well.
S2S: She’s met the lady in London?
Mashonda: Yes. I’m glad she’s having her own child now because now she will have someone to call her “umi”.
Mashonda: Like, if you want to be a stepmother, that’s great. Be a stepmother. But don’t think that it’s okay to make a kid call you “umi” or “mommy.”

Finally Fab started to answer back.
It’s getting super ugly.
A jealous boyfriend stabbed his partner to death after she accidently blurted out the name of another man as they had sex.
Gary Higgs, 44, flipped when his girlfriend suddenly cried out, ‘Chris’ as they made love in their bedroom.
Enraged, he stormed downstairs, grabbed a chef’s knife from the kitchen and stabbed Joanne Kitchen once in the back and once in the chest.
Afterwards as she lay dying from her wounds, Higgs throttled the 41-year-old to death with the electrical flex of their alarm clock.
When police caught up with him he confessed: ‘I asked her why she said “Chris” but she said she must have been thinking about her daughter’s boyfriend Chris.
‘It didn’t make any sense to me and I was getting more angry.
Why was she thinking about her daughter’s boyfriend when we were having sex?
‘I couldn’t get things out of my mind. I didn’t know exactly what I was thinking. I picked the knife up and carried it upstairs to the bedroom.
‘I don’t remember thinking I wanted to harm Jo at this time. I was just so mad. I am truly deeply sorry for what I have done.’
Yesterday Higgs was jailed for life for the murder and told he must serve a minimum of 15 years before he will be considered for release.
Sentencing him, Judge Andrew Gilbart QC said their relationship was overcome by financial tensions and arguments.

*Brian McKnight is responding to allegations that a porn star was raped in his home in 2008 while he was out of town, RadarOnline.com reports.
The allegation was made by Alana Evans on her Twitter page, which became public via a story from Media Takeout. McKnight confirms that the matter was thoroughly investigated by police, but the accused man was not arrested.
Evans has since closed her Twitter page to outsiders but according to Media Takeout’s report, she claimed the LAPD did nothing to help her because of her profession. Now McKnight, the Grammy-winning singer and talk show host, is speaking out.
“We take the accusations made by Ms. Evans very seriously,” McKnight says in a statement to RadarOnline.com.
“I was made aware of a party at my house in my absence in December of 2008. I was in NYC, and both my boys (ages 15 & 17 at that time) were at the house with some friends. I can confirm that Ms. Evans was in fact at the house, as I discovered she provided some of the liquor.
“Being as I was not home at the time, I cannot speak absolutely regarding all the events of the evening, however my sons did inform me that due to Ms. Evans level of intoxication, that they placed her alone in a bedroom so she could “sleep it off.” The next morning Ms. Evans stayed and socialized at the house until approximately 2PM.”
Evans says the man who raped her is Nicholas Hayes, and McKnight acknowledges that allegation.
“Two days after the party, Ms. Evans contacted the LAPD,” McKnight continued in the statement. “The police came to the house and questioned the entire family and Mr. Hayes with the full cooperation of the McKnight family. Mr. Hayes retained a lawyer, and cooperated in a month long investigation. The police concluded that no rape had occurred, and no charges were ever filed. This information is all part of the official police report.
“Rape is a very serious matter, and not something we take lightly. I truly hope that Ms. Evans was not discriminated by the police because of her profession. I believe that the police concluded simply that no crime had taken place.
“That being said,’if I ever had knowledge of such a vile and reprehensible act by anyone whether they were friends or family, I would never work to ‘protect’ that person. The statement that Mr. Hayes has been banned from my home is not true. “
He signs off: “Thank you, Brian, Brian Jr & Niko McKnight.”
Adult actress Alana Evans recently took to twitter to recount her horrific rape at performer Brian McKnight’s home by a friend of the singer’s family. She claims the attack took place in December 2008, while two of Brian McKnight’s sons were at home. Evans feels that they helped her attacker cover up his awful crime.
Here is her complete account as posted on Twitter:
Watching what would u do- a drunk girl being semi forced to leave the bar- guess who laughs and let’s it happen? A fucking off duty cop! OMG
No wonder the LAPD did nothing when I was rufeed and raped at Brian McKnights house by a kid who was friends with the McKnights kids-
Yeah- finally said it! On December 16, 2008 I was raped by their friend in the maids quarters of Mcknights home-LAPD refused to file charges
I’ve been quiet way too long at it- fuck them- not anymore- more women are raped everyday and the police don’t help- why? Cuz boys lie
Brian McKnight was performing in NY when were we all there- he came home to cops at his door- and the “friend” was never allowed back-
LAPD did nothing because I am a pornstar- so I guess that makes me less of a human to them
I kept hearing ” how do u rape a pornstar” well when u wake up with a fat dude on top of you, that’s how- I freaked and blacked out
So there ya go- don’t hang with guys u don’t know cuz u never know what can happen- even when ur at a famous guys house- means nothing
The name of the piece of shit who rufeed my beer, then carried my passed out body to the maids quarters was Nick Hayes- BJ and Nikkos friend
Wow- I can’t believe I’ve finally said it- sorry but I’ve been silent for over a year-
Now let’s see how long before it ends up on @TMZ- I guess that’s why I’ve been silent- cuz I know I’ll be slandered- oh well- its ok
It just really hurt that they ( lapd) wouldn’t help me- law says there’s is no consent when a woman is intoxicated- but it didn’t matter
I asked who it was cuz it was pitch black so I couldn’t see- he said it was him-I told him to get out- he jumped on me etc and I blacked out
I woke up several hours later- alone- and it was day light- all my clothes were gone- they laughed when they saw me
I was so fucked up the whole day- I knew I was drugged- stayed in bed- went to police when I was more alert the next am-
The pig told the cops I was drunk- that I said I was horny and consented so the rape kit didn’t even matter
The stellar thing is that the guy I went there with came to check on me and found the guy over me in the room- asked what he was doing-
He said “nothing, just checking on her” and they went to mcdonalds for breakfast. But the cops said he gave a different story- awesome
his name is Nicholas Hayes- the Mcknights originally said he was there cousin when we met- that was a lie-
nope- he was friends ith BJ mcknight an nikko mcknight- @brianmcknights kids- he was staying at their home
Alana posted her account on her Twitter page.
McKnight’s two sons have posted their musical endeavors on Facebook. One of their Facebook friends is none other than Nick Hayes. Below is a screenshot of Nick’s Facebook page. Evans accuses McKnight’s sons of not being truthful when questioned by police. Evans’ husband, Chris Evans, has specifically named the McKnight son who uses the psuedonyms Johnny Massacre and Arthur Khaos, as helping Hayes cover up the rape.
McKnight’s relationship with his sons can be rocky at times. Earlier this year, he proposed to his girlfriend during a Hawaii concert. A few days later, one of his sons posted this on MySpace:
2 days ago my life hit the marble floor, face first. Something was brought to my attention that I thought would NEVER happen. I’m not going to beat around the bush right now so I’m just going to spill it out. My father got engaged, two days ago, to a woman I, somewhat, loathe. He always told me that no matter what, in the end, it’ll always be Me, Bj, and Him but at this point I’m losing faith in that statement. 4 years ago, when I didn’t know about anything that may have been wrong and thought that I was in this perfect family that had it’s flaws, I was so oblivious. Never looked behind the curtain. Never wondered what was behind door number Brian but now.. I see clearer. I see that I’m becoming more of a man because of all of this. I know how I need to be when I finally settle down and have kids and a family of my own so I know how to keep them from hurting inside and feeling the way I do every time I look at them. I see years and years of my mother HURTING over this dumb broad and for what? I just don’t see it. My mother is an amazing woman who stood by HIS side before the fame AND even AFTER the divorce mom is STILL there for him. I just don’t know. And it sucks even more with him being who he is, I have people writing me, asking me “who’s the lady?!”, “is he really engaged?!”. Just fucking leave me alone right now. I feel like my life is.. Crumbling slowly.
