Actress Adrienne Bailon has blasted her ex-boyfriend Rob Kardashian in a scathing new magazine article, revealing she's tired of his fans and friends blaming her for the break-up.
The former Disney Channel star tells the new issue of Latina magazine she still has a lot of regrets about her time with Kim Kardashian's brother, revealing he cheated on her.
She says, "To this day, people will still say, 'You ruined Rob's life,' and I'll think, 'Damn, I was still playing with Barbie dolls when I met him'."
"It's common knowledge that he cheated on me. It always bothered me that people were like, 'Pero (but), why couldn’t you forgive him?' Why are women always the ones who have to forgive? If you cheated on a man, he would be like, 'You're disgusting, and I want nothing to do with you'. But women, we're supposed to be like, 'He messed up. He made a mistake'. "In my situation, it wasn't like, 'Oh my God! I made a mistake!' He strategically planned things out so that he could cheat on me, and that to me was so disloyal."
Bailon and Kardashian split in 2009 after two years of dating.
Newly single Taye Diggs is launching his own programme about unmarried fathers.
The How Stella Got Her Groove Back star announced his separation from his wife of nearly 10 years, Idina Menzel, last December (13), and now he's using his talents to help other men who are also juggling fatherhood and single life.
Diggs, who shares four-year-old son Walker with Menzel, took to Twitter.com on Wednesday (09Jul14) to announce his new project, Single Urban Dads. He wrote, "Starting-up a new show. Launching it on @twitter. Stay tuned to @SingleUrbanDads to learn more."
A description on the show's official Twitter.com page reads, "Single Urban Dads dealing with the challenges and triumphs of being a single dad in the big city."
Diggs has since moved on to another woman, debuting his new girlfriend Amanza Smith Brown as they walked the red carpet together at the BET Awards last month (Jun14).
R&B star Chris Brown has reportedly split from his on/off girlfriend Karrueche Tran once again, just weeks after reuniting following his two-month stint behind bars.
The Kiss Kiss hitmaker walked free from jail on 2 June (14) after admitting to breaking the terms of his 2009 probation by getting kicked out of a court-ordered rehab programme.
Tran celebrated his release by throwing him a star-studded surprise party and she accompanied her beau as his date to the BET Awards in Los Angeles on 29 June (14).
They spent America's Independence Day holiday together on Friday (04Jul14), when Brown uploaded a raunchy snap of Tran lying face down on a bed wearing nothing but a bra and a skimpy thong, baring her backside, to his more than 3.7 million followers.
However, it appears their romance has since soured, prompting both Brown and Tran to delete all photos of the couple from its Instagram.com accounts and 'unfollow' one another.
Tran hinted at the break-up on Sunday (06Jul14) with a cryptic post that read: "Love what you have before life teaches you to love what you lost". She followed it up with a Buddha quote which stated, "In the end, only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you."
In the accompanying caption, she simply wrote, "Well.."
The former couple began dating in 2011, two years after Brown was convicted of assaulting his then-girlfriend Rihanna on the eve of the Grammy Awards in 2009.
He and Tran split in 2012 as he attempted to rekindle his relationship with the Umbrella beauty, but he reconciled with the model in 2013. They parted ways again in early March (14), only to pick their romance back up weeks later.
Nicki Minaj has blamed the press for twisting her words after she was accused of taking a sly swipe at rap rival Iggy Azalea during her BET Awards acceptance speech on Sunday (29Jun14).
The Starships hitmaker sent gossip bloggers into a spin at the weekend ceremony as she picked up the prize for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist and declared, "(What) I want the world to know about Nicki Minaj is, that when you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it."
Multiple online reports suggested the comment was aimed at Fancy rapper Azalea, who was in the audience at the Los Angeles ceremony, after rumours recently emerged alleging verses on her debut album The New Classic had been penned by ghostwriters including her mentor T.I..
However, Minaj has now taken to her Twitter.com blog to clear up the claims, insisting she simply wanted to encourage female emcees everywhere to take charge of their own material.
In a post on Wednesday (02Jul14), she writes, "The media puts words in my mouth all the time and this is no different. "I will always take a stance on women writing b/c (because) I believe in us! I believe we're smart enough to write down our own thoughts and perspective, just like the men do. I've been saying this for 5 YEARS."
"I've congratulated Iggy on the success of Fancy, publicly. She should be very proud of that. All the women nominated should b (sic) proud. That will never change my desire to motivate women to write. Our voices have to be heard. I hope I inspire up & coming females to do that."

With rumors flying around about how Iggy Azalea might use ghostwriters, Nicki Minaj took time out of her acceptance speech at the 2014 BET Awards to throw incredible, lethal amounts of shade at the Australian rapper. At least, we assume she's talking about Iggy here:
The shadiest part of the speech? Probably this moment: "No, no, no shade, no, no, no shade." And now that shots have been clearly fired at someone (most likely, Iggy), we have to wonder if that someone is going to fire back.

Courtney Love making out with someone at an awards show may not raise many eyebrows. But Courtney Love making out with new mom and wife Amber Rose at the BET Awards? Well, that's something special:
Soooooo me and @courtneylove made out tonight. Epic!
And here's a great "before" photo they got with Paris Hilton:
Amber Rose may have had to explain this to hubby Wiz Khalifa, but something tells us he probably sees the humor in it all. Congratulations Amber! This is a milestone... of sorts.

Robin Thicke issued another public plea for forgiveness to his estranged wife Paula Patton during a performance at the 2014 BET Awards on Sunday (29Jun14). Before he began singing new track Forever Love at the piano, he told the crowd, "I'd like to dedicate this song to my wife, and say, 'I miss you, and I'm sorry.'" The pair split in February (14).

The 2014 BET Awards were marred by a fatal shooting at an unofficial pre-party event in Los Angeles on Sunday (29Jun14), just hours after a stabbing at another bash in the run up to the glitzy awards show.
On Saturday (28Jun14), a pre-party event hosted by rapper Meek Mill in L.A. ended in a fight which left one club-goer hospitalised with stab wounds. In the early hours of Sunday, at a separate unofficial event in the city, one reveller was killed and four others were wounded when shots were fired at a restaurant. The victims were admitted to hospital, where one passed away.
The Los Angeles Police Department is investigating both incidents. Officials at the BET network insisted they were not involved in organising the events, saying, "The two isolated incidents over the weekend occurred at locations with events that were unauthorised and unaffiliated with the BET Awards, BET Experience at L.A. LIVE or their partners... Security remains the number one priority for all official BET events and the network and all organisers will continue to maintain a safe environment for all planned activities."
The BET Awards, which celebrate African Americans in entertainment, took place in Los Angeles on Sunday evening, with Beyonce and Pharrell Williams scooping top awards.
Producers behind the 2014 BET Awards broadcast made a blunder by misspelling Lionel Richie's name. When the singer came onstage to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award at the ceremony on Sunday (29Jun14), the on-screen graphics named him 'Lionel Ritchie'.
Beyonce was the toast of the 2014 BET Awards after scooping three top prizes and closing the show with a taped performance of Partition from her On The Run tour with husband Jay Z. The Crazy in Love hitmaker picked up Best Female R&B/Pop Artist, the FANdemonium Award, and Best Collaboration for Drunk in Love with her rapper partner.
Pharrell Williams kicked off the proceedings with his Miley Cyrus collaboration Come Get It Bae, but instead of performing with the Wrecking Ball hitmaker, he had a little help from reclusive rap superstar Missy Elliott. The pair then burst into a rendition of her 2003 hit Pass That Dutch.
The pair received a rapturous welcome from the crowd, and Williams went on to be named the winner in the Best Male R&B/ Pop Artist category and Video of the Year for Happy.
Drake saw off competition from Jay Z to win the Best Male Hip Hop Artist prize, while Nicki Minaj went home with the female equivalent. Best Group went to Young Money, Lil Wayne's collection of artists.
Oscar-winning drama 12 Years A Slave swept the board in the movie categories, being named Best Film, while its stars Lupita Nyong'o and Chiwetel Ejiofor won the top acting prizes.
Chris Brown surprised the crowd with a performance of his new track Loyal. He was joined by Lil Wayne and Tyga for his first high-profile post-prison show. Other performers to wow the crowd included T.I. and Iggy Azalea, Robin Thicke, Usher, Jennifer Hudson, Nicki Minaj, John Legend and Lionel Richie, who performed a medley of hits after being presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award.
Although they couldn't be there in person, Beyonce and Jay Z closed the show with a pre-recorded performance from their collaborative tour.
Chris Rock acted as host. The full list of winners is as follows:
