According to TMZ reports:
Lamar Odom went after his drug enabler with a vengeance, calling the woman a “groupie junkie” and “crack head” … and he did it while Khole Kardashian was breathing down his neck.
TMZ has seen text messages between Lamar and Polina Polonsky, an attorney who Lamar stayed with during the last few months … partying with him while he was doing crack.
We’ve learned on July 13, Khloe confronted Lamar at a downtown L.A. motel, where he was holed up with the woman and doing drugs. In an effort to save her husband, Khloe practically manhandled him out of the room and back to their home.
Once home … Lamar started texting Polina right in front of Khloe, telling Polina he had “f**ked up.” Polina responded by saying, “You’re corny.” Lamar — standing next to his furious wife — then fired his salvo, texting Polina, “Groupie junkie … crack head.”
Lamar went on, “U might want to b careful. Narcs know. They have footage, audio n pics.”
Polina responded, “Stay in your lane.” He fired back, “4real Know where u work U live Ur parents.”
Although Khloe was aware for 2 years that Lamar was addicted to drugs … our sources say Khloe became convinced on the day the texts were sent that crack was Lamar’s overriding problem.
Miley Cyrus managed to get everyone talking about her twerk-heavy performance at this past weekend’s MTV VMAs, and the mom of her duet partner Robin Thicke has shared her thoughts on the performance. Miley was grinding on Thicke during the performance, and his mom Gloria Loring said that she wasn’t impressed.
“I just keep thinking of her mother and father watching this. Oh, Lord, have mercy. I was not expecting her to be putting her butt that close to my son. The problem is now I can never ‘unsee’ it,” she told Yahoo OMG Insider.
“I don’t understand what Miley Cyrus is trying to do.I just don’t understand. I think she’s misbegotten in this attempt of hers. And I think it was not beneficial,” she added.
According to TMZ reports:
Lamar Odom was deep into drugs while he was playing for the Dallas Mavericks and there is evidence he was doing the exact same thing while playing for the Lakers … TMZ has learned.
Sources connected to a Westin hotel in Memphis tell TMZ … in March of 2012, shortly before Lamar was cut from the Mavs, he stayed in one of the guest rooms while his team was in town playing the Grizzlies.
Our sources say when Lamar left, hotel employees found major carpet damage … including quarter-sized burn marks. The damage was so bad, the hotel had to replace the carpeting in the room.
Our sources say hotel employees also found white powder on the desk blotter and the room reeked of noxious smoke. Our sources say it was obvious there was serious drug use going on in the hotel room.
The Westin is one of numerous hotels where NBA players stay when they’re on the road. TMZ has contacted a number of these hotels in various cities. We’ve learned from several hotel employees … they had complained about the state of the rooms when Lamar left — similar to what happened in Memphis — and this was while he was playing for the Lakers.
Our sources say no one on the Mavs knew Lamar was a substance abuser while he was on the team, but everyone knew something was seriously wrong with him.
We’re told that during at least part of the time he was playing for the Mavs, Lamar was smoking Oxycontin and cocaine.
Odom’s problems were so severe, he was cut from the Mavs mid-season and paid in full just so he would go away.
TMZ broke the story … the drug use escalated to crack — and we’re told Lamar’s level of crack use is now alarming and life-threatening.
Yesterday we all found out that Diddy gave J. Cole a beat down! Today more info about the fight has hit the wire!
Sean “Diddy” Combs ended up in the middle of a scuffle at his and Jay Z’s star-studded MTV Video Music Awards after-party.
In a room packed with Beyoncé, Rihanna, Leo DiCaprio, Jamie Foxx, Pharrell Williams and Justin Timberlake, tensions boiled over between rappers J. Cole and Combs.
A witness at the PH-D rooftop lounge at the Dream Downtown told us, “J. Cole was saying inappropriate things to Sean Combs and his girlfriend, Cassie. Sean immediately pounced. Some pushing and shoving happened. No punches were thrown, but it was a visible disturbance. A few bottles splashed to the floor and some partygoers were knocked over, falling on top of Renee Graziano from ‘Mob Wives.’ ”
Other witnesses described it as a 3 a.m. “dust-up” that started after multiple bottles of Diddy’s Ciroc had been downed. Combs walked out of the melee and seemed untroubled, immediately making his way to the mike to welcome everyone to the VMA bash, and wished Cassie a happy birthday.
After being teased via a Beats by Dre commercial that debuted during Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards, Eminem dropped “Berzerk,” the lead single off his forthcoming “MMLP2.” Take a listen below and let us know what you think of Slim Shady’s comeback anthem — which comes with quite the Beastie Boys vibe — below.
For months the media world has been buzzing news of an upcoming Danity Kane reunion, as well as news that the group’s fifth member would not be participating in the reunion. This past weekend at MTV’s Video Music Awards, the reunion was officially confirmed and despite whispers regarding behind-the-scenes drama, D.Woods had nothing but nice things to say about her former group members and their decision to give Danity Kane another try.
“There’s alot of people talking, but there’s nothing but love. Today’s #GOLDMINEOFTHEDAY is none other than @Aubreyoday, @shannon_bex,@dawnrichard, @aundreafimbres1 otherwise known as @danitykane. Don’t think you know their whole story cuz you watched part of their jounrey on MTV. These ladies are just getting started. Stay tuned…WERRRK!.#GOLDMINE is on ITUNES,” she posted to her Instagram page.
This would the third time D addressed the reunion and her absence. If you recall, back in May she revealed that she learned about the highly anticipated reunion on Twitter, but went on to insist that there are no hard feelings between she and her former group members and that she’s busy doing her own thing.
“I found out when my Twitter timeline went off the chain. We did go our separate ways in the fall of 2008. My main priority right now is growing as an artist. I’ve committed to projects and developing my own label, so I know right now, I can’t commit to splitting my focus on something like that. I don’t want to hold anyone back. If they feel like that’s what they want to do, and they want to do it right now, they’re going to do it. I mean you don’t have to wait for me. I’m going to support them as I’ve always supported them, and I hope they will support me. I was surprised myself. After seeing the pictures and the clip with the video, I saw that they were in Los Angeles. I’m not in Los Angeles so there goes the reason why I was not in the picture. I’m actually in Atlanta right now. I’m in pre-production rehearsal for the new musical ‘Rebirth’, so that’s what I’m currently doing,” she said during an interview with Hot 107.5.
According To Bossip.com:
Last night the streets of NYC were filled with actresses, singers, rappers and celebs of all kinds after the 2013 MTV VMAs, and as the famous quote goes “after the show, it’s the afterparty…”.
At one such post-awards soiree at the Dream Hotel, there were rumblings that the Ciroc boy himself got into an ugly brawl with RocNation rapper J.Cole!
We also caught wind of the possible incident earlier this morning via Twitter:
itsMyUrbantainment.com also caught some info from someone who witnessed the beef:
You’ve probably seen Miley Cyrus’ hyper-sexualized Video Music Awards performance with Robin Thicke by now (or at least, the supposed reaction shots), but a small rumor floating across the web suggests that no matter how many were offended by the stunt, none have a bigger axe to grind than Paula Patton, Thicke’s own wife.
Thicke’s supposedly “rapey” song and music video, replete with innuendo, topless dancers, and references to the 36-year-old’s manhood, wasn’t enough to anger his 37-year-old actress wife. But former Disney child star Miley Cyrus gyrating, twerking and suggesting masturbation in a nude bikini while her husband belts out the song of the summer? That was the line, according to an “exclusive” at MediaTakeOut.
In an piece titled: “It POPPED OFF BACKSTAGE At The VMAs… Robin Thicke’s Wife Paula Patton ‘ATTACKS’ Miley Cyrus!!!” the site suggests that they have a “100 PERCENT CONFIRMED REPORT” that Paula Patton actually approached Miley Cyrus backstage after her performance and attempted to beat the crap out of her.
“Paula waited until the end of the show, so that she could get close enough to Miley… then she LASHED OUT” the site says, with an “insider” adding that “We had to physically hold Paula back, she was ready to go crazy. Plus she seemed to be a little inebriated – maybe too much champagne.”
Doesn’t sound like the classy actress to us, nor did it seem legitimate to expert gossip busters over at GossipCop.
“Whoa, seriously? Not. At. All,” they write. “None of this ever happened.
Gossip Cop checked in with a close Patton insider, who tells us the blog’s report is simply not true.”
Maybach Music Group are gearing up to release the third installment of their Self Made series.
With Rockie Fresh now in the clique’s fold, the house that Rick Ross built have delivered a few noteworthy tracks from the compilation album. Meek Mill’s “Levels” and Gunplay’s “Gallardo” are club oriented while songs like “Poor Decisions” and “Oil Money Gang” are easier listens.
A well balanced track list could make this MMG’s best group offering yet, though they don’t have the same momentum as their previous two outings. And we’re not sure if that will change due to the highly anticipated LPs set to release next month.
Guest features on the project include Yo Gotti, Birdman, Lil Boosie, Pusha T, Lupe Fiasco, J. Cole, and deceased Dreamchasers rapper Lil Snupe.
