Here what’s got our coffee pots boiling over this morning:
  • Nicki Minaj has cleared up rumors that she fired Diddy. She took to her Twitter account and wrote, “LMAO. I’ve never met Benny Medina a day in my life. We good on this side. #itspinkfridayhoeless.” The internet was a buzz last night and this morning stating that she fired Diddy and hired industry vet Benny Medina in his place. Why would she let him go if she’s doing so well? She’s one of the hottest in the game. [EURweb]
  • Vanessa Williams admitted she’s not rooting for her ex-husband, Rick Fox, on “DWTS.” According to people, she thinks Jennifer Grey has the best chance of winning. Although she says “I’ve never seen him ballroom before…I knew he was a good dancer in terms of freestyle, but the only time we danced ballroom together was our wedding, which was in 1999.” [People]
  • Foxy Brown may be looking to grab the youth ambassador to Trinidad and Tobago title. Unless it’s perfectly OK to be a youth ambassador and be constantly in and out of court, we’ll have to disagree with Foxy on this one. [The Boom Box]
  • M.I.A. has taken her red carpet fashion to a new level. She posed on the “Scream 2010” red carpet in a burqa while giving the finger. She knows the definition of shock value. We weren’t expecting her to take it there. [Huff Po]
  • Mike Tyson is being sued for $25 million for a 2009 airport scuffle with a paparazzi photographer. The photographer claims he suffered face, brain, spine and neck injuries. It’s been a year. Why didn’t he file his lawsuit a long time ago? [Pop Eater]
  • Gabrielle Union is old friends with President Obama? Who knew!? The actress and politician reportedly have friends in common from Harvard Law. Page Six is reporting that Union has known Obama since he was a junior senator. The two recently caught up at a Florida fund-raiser. [Page Six]
  • TMZ is reporting that Chad Ochocinco is dating “Basketball Wives'” Evelyn Lozada. Sources say that things are “going amazing.” This does not surprise us. We wish them the best of luck! [TMZ]
