*Ever since DJ Khaled made his bizarre proposal – via a now-viral video message via MTV – to Nicki Minaj, we – along with a bunch of other folks – have been trying to figure out what that was all about.
“I want to be honest with you. I love you. I like you. I want you to be mine,” Khaled said in the video. “The only reason I’m not telling you this face to face is because I know that you’re busy … Nicki Minaj, will you marry me?”
He then held up a 10-karat ring from Rafaello & Co. reportedly worth north of $500k to his YMCMB labelmate.
You know, we did think it was sorta curious that Ms. Minaj didn’t respond … at least publicly to the proposal. But rumor has it that she filed a restraining order against him although there are no reports of him stalking or actually harassing her.
On top of all that madness, we found out via Rejina’s “Gossip Fix” newsletter that Khaled is actually … married! Hello.
OK, this is really getting “interesting.” Well, sorta. But now we know what all the bizarreness was all about. Courtesy of Eben Gregory‘s newsletter we got the info below.
One of three women held captive in a Cleveland home for a
decade appeared on stage at a concert yesterday alongside
rapper Nelly – her first public event since her rescue, which
came a day after her abductor pleaded guilty. Amanda Berry
made a surprise appearance at the day-long concert
RoverFest in Cleveland on Saturday night, walking on stage
with her family and waving at the cheering crowd before
reemerging later again to join rapper Nelly.

Doesn’t matter if you have one of the top-selling albums in the country — the rules of the skies still apply to you, too, Wale. (At least as long as you’re flying commercial.)
(Nikki Kahn/The Washington Post)
The D.C.-bred rapper, whose “The Gifted” debuted at No. 1 this month, says he was kicked off a New York-bound American Airlines flight in Raleigh-Durham Tuesday night. This according to a blow-by-blow of the incident he outlined on Twitter.
“Got put off the plane,” he wrote just before 11 p.m. “For having my phone on.” (He added later that “it was off. Honestly.”)
The details remain hazy: Wale’s rep did not return our email, and his tour manager told us, “I wasn’t there,” before quickly getting off the phone.
Not that it’s hard to fathom: In his own telling, the story seemed to mirror Alec Baldwin’s testy account of being removed from an AA flight in 2011 — later confirmed by the airlines — after he kept his phone on after a warning from flight crew.
A rep for American Airlines said he could not discuss incidents involving passengers. A flight from Atlanta to LaGuardia was diverted to Raleigh-Durham that night because of two disruptive passengers, he confirmed. But while Wale was recently in Atlanta, and the diverted flight’s departure and arrivals corresponded roughly with his own Twitter timeline, it was not immediately clear if that was his flight.
(Update, 9:30 a.m.: If the diverted flight was the one Wale was on, sounds like someone else was implicated as the primary troublemaker. Airport officials said Thursday that only one person from that flight — a woman — was arrested. In another tweet, Wale indicated that two passengers other than himself also got in trouble with his flight crew.)
Though Wale implied in a tweet that law enforcement interacted with him — “The pilot and I were havin a civil [conversation] until the police showed up. THAT’S when he started yellin and gettin aggressive” — a spokeswoman for the Raleigh-Durham International Airport said Wednesday she did not have an arrest report for anyone by his name and therefore no more immediate information.
And it’s pretty clear that Wale did not end up detained, since subsequent texts suggest he was busy making alternate plans: “Where the party at in Raleigh tonight?”
The star was headed overseas, due to perform in Oslo Thursday night.

Tamar Braxton dismisses motherhood critics
Tamar Braxton is too amazed by her new son to be terribly concerned with how much people think she loves him.
Tamar got people talking last month when she said that she didn’t immediately fall in love with her baby boy Logan Vincent Herbert. The backlash didn’t come as much of surprise to Tamar, who told S2S, “It was completely taken out of context, but isn’t everything I say?”
The “Love & War” singer suffered a little bit of a maternal backlash following her statements, but she didn’t feel the need to clarify what she meant. “You know, some people get and some people don’t,” Tamar said. “What I’ve learned along the way is that you can’t go to each person and explain yourself. And I refuse to do that.”
She added, “You can think whatever you want to think. I love my son; I feel blessed to have him in my life and that’s it.”
Tamar shared that while she did love Logan right off, she was still reeling from the shock of finally getting to meet her baby. “Of course you love your child, but no one talks about the initial shock, and that’s what happened to me,” Tamar shared. “I was shocked. I was shocked for at least three days. Like, ‘Oh, my God! I’m a mother, this is my baby. I can’t believe this is the person that’s been swimming inside of me for 9 months.’”
She continued, “It’s not love, it’s shock–but you love them.”
The big thing for Tamar was that baby Logan is the product of the love that she and hubby Vincent Herbert have shared for about a decade. “Vince and I have been together for 10 years and this is something that’s come out of our 10-year relationship. It’s amazing,” she explained.
No one can argue now, though, that Tamar isn’t completely head-over-heels with her new little man. She doesn’t want to miss a second with her son! “He just went down [for a nap]. I’m so sad. I hate it when he goes to sleep. Isn’t that selfish of me?” Tamar told us with a laugh when we caught up with her.
The new working mom, who just began her new show “The Real” last week, sounded completely relaxed during our chat. That’s no easy trick considering she has two reality shows (“Braxton Famliy Values” and “Tamar & Vince”), a talk show, an album and a new baby.
That would be a lot for most people to handle, but Tamar is taking it all in stride. “It’s five things that I absolutely love to do, so it doesn’t seem like I’m overwhelmed,” she said. “I’m having a ball.”

In case you missed it: The “Best Man Holiday” trailer is finally here.
It’s been 15 years since the cult classic black comedy “The Best Man,” first hit theaters and in the sequel the drama-filled group of friends get back together for a holiday get-together that goes left.
In the previews, Jordan (Nia Long) has a new boyfriend who happens to be white, and the former stripper Candy (Regina Hall) and Julian (Harold Perrineau) are now married while trying to fight off Shelby (Melissa De Sousa), who wants that old thang back. Lance (Morris Chestnut) seems to be still sour grapes about Harper (Taye Diggs) sleeping with his wife Mia (Monica Calhoun), while Robin (Sanaa Lathan) is expecting. It also looks as though a serious bomb drops on the group of friends, while they are bonding on vacation. In a recent interview, Morris Chestnut called “Best Man Holiday” an “emotional roller coaster,” and hints that there will be a tragedy in the film.
Despite the sad parts, the movie also guarantees lots of laughs, especially in the scene where the fellas dress up and lip sync to New Edition’s “Can You Stand the Rain.”
Peep the new extended trailer and more pics below:
As Ramadan begins, more than 100 hunger-strikers in Guantánamo Bay continue their protest.More than 40 of them are being force-fed.
