Dr. Ross-Lee slammed Mocienne Jackson’s outrageous rumors today when she told TMZ reporters that it was impossible for her to have had a baby by Michael in 1975, because she had never met him at that point in her life.
Last night, Randy Jackson told TMZ reporters that the whole thing, “sounds kinda crazy.” That’s what we were thinking when this story 1st broke.
Today, Mocienne Jackson’s outrageous claim is seeming even further from the truth.
Dr. Barbara Ross-Lee tells TMZ that M.P. Jackson, “is not my daughter.” She also told sources that the woman is “delusional.” According to Dr. Ross-Lee she responded to one of Mocienne’s emails a few years ago to inform her that she was mistaken and to wish her well. There was even a time when Mocienne Jackson, “was really harassing me at my office,” says the Doctor. She was even forced to have her employer contact the police to get the harassment from Mocienne to stop. Dr. Ross-Lee told TMZ that the entire thing is nothing short of “bizarre.”
According to Dr. Ross-Lee’s biography, she graduated from Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine in 1973. She then worked a rotating internship at Martin Place Hospital in Detroit. She also signed on with an older doctor, and after three months she left his practice and went to work on the East Side for a physicians’ group. On July 1, 1974, she opened her own practice, which she ran until 1984. Dr. Ross-Lee also married her 2nd husband in 1976.
I’d say her life was pretty full! When would she have had the time to hide a lovechild that she conceived with Michael Jackson? Remember, Mocienne was born in 1975.

Two days after TMZ released court documents filed by Terius Nash, aka The-Dream, Christina Milian breaks her silence. The documents posted on TMZ‘s website on July 22, 2010 were divorce papers filed by The-Dream just nine days before Christina gave birth to Violet. In the documents, The-Dream claims that his marriage to Christina is “irretrievably broken,” and he declares, “There is no hope for reconciliation.”
The document also states:
However, in a legal response filed last week, Christina says they were not legally separated at the time and that she and her husband had “marital relations on numerous occasions,” after he filed his claim. She wants a judge to throw out the divorce papers filed by her hubby in February, because he lied about the status of their relationship. She admits that she signed a settlement agreement with The-Dream in which both parties waved any alimony or ownership right’s to the other person’s property. However, she claims the only reason she signed the document was because The-Dream brought them to her bedside when she was 9-months pregnant and in no condition to sign such important papers.
If the court does grant the divorce Christina feels it should not be based on The-Dream’s claim that the marriage is “irretrievably broken,” but rather, because the The-Dream was cheating on her.
We’ll find out the real deal as this story continues to unfold, but for now, check out Christina looking hot as ever as she goes for a jog!!! July 23, 2010

Lindsay Lohan has landed the lead role in a movie based on the life of 1970s porn star Linda Lovelace.
The 24-year-old, controversial star who recently posted a Twitpic of herself holding a gun to her own face, will play Lovelace. Lovelace is a porn star who shot to fame with the landmark 1972 porno movie, “Deep Throat.”
I would say it’s probably one of the most challenging roles any actor could play — and not because of the sexual content, necessarily — but more because she was so battered and beat up emotionally, that I think it’s gonna take everything Lindsay has to really be able to pull it off,” Producer Wali Razaqi stated to the Los Angeles Times while speaking of the role Lindsay will play in his upcoming movie, “Inferno.”
Not that Lindsay’s life is similar in any way — but she’s been through a lot of ups and downs. A lot of times you’re loved and then you’re hated, and I think she can relate to those emotions and feelings.” He said.

According to Global Grind, Beyonce’ has gotten a tattoo in honor of her man, Jay-Z.
Read some more after the jump….
So although they don’t hardly speak on their relationship, it’s known that Jay-Z and Beyonce’ are crazy about each other. But this alleged recent move Beyonce’ pulled really shows that she is Jay-Z down chick. Reports, rumors, and pictures have surfaced that the singing diva got the word Brooklyn tattooed on her left hand. Now this may not seem like a big deal, but Bey isn’t from Brooklyn like Jay, so she basically is putting on for her hubby’s city.
Check out some more of the photos below!
~~ I think it’s a nice gesture to get a tattoo that represents your man. It’s better than writing their name on your body. This is just my opinion. I’m not knocking anyone who has their man’s name tattooed on themselves. I just wouldn’t do it personally.
Of course Arizona wasn’t going to get away with such a bold move without Hollywood speaking out! Celebrities are voicing their opinions on Governor Jan‘s strict immigration law.
International star Shakira visited Arizona Thursday and met with officials to learn more about the law. After a meeting with Phoenix’s Latin Community the Grammy winning star had this to say:
“…It violates the civil and human rights of the Latino Community…It goes against all human dignity, against the principles of most Americans I know.”
The singer who at one point stated, “I’m here pretty much undocumented,” said the Constitution “exists to protect the rights of people living in a nation with or without documents.”
We’re talking about human beings here.

From the moment ‘Saturday Night Live’ first appeared back in 1975, it established itself as one of the most important musical venues in the nation. With just two short songs, up-and-coming singers and bands could create an entire career thanks to the buzz that would follow a memorable SNL debut — performances that in many cases have since become legendary. And that still holds true today: if you’re great on ‘Saturday Night Live,’ chances are you’re going to make it big.
But what if you, you know… suck?
Welcome to Ke$ha‘s world. As anyone who has been online this week knows, Ke$ha, the songstress behind the ubiquitous pop hit ‘Tik Tok,’ had her maiden SNL performance last weekend. And the result was nothing short of disastrous, as media outlets around the hemisphere raced to be the first to post their “Was Ke$ha the worst ‘SNL’ musical guest ever?” articles.
With that in mind, we thought this would be a good time to take a look back at her competition for the title, those musical guests that were memorable for all the wrong reasons. So without further ado, here’s our list of the worst ‘SNL‘ performances ever.
• Ke$ha — No doubt you’ve already seen this by now, but we thought it only fair to remind everyone just why this list is necessary. It was a toss-up just which of Ke$ha’s two performances were worse, but despite the day-glo body paint she used in ‘Your Love is My Drug,’ we ended up going with ‘Tik Tok.’ And not just because it was the worst use of space imagery in a live performance since William Shatner‘s rendition of ‘Rocket Man.’ So what was the deciding factor? Two words: Laser. Harp.
• Ashlee Simpson — As bad as Ke$ha was, she still couldn’t quite topple the undisputed queen of bad performances, Ashlee Simpson, whose 2004 lip-sync fiasco put a major dent in her career plans. She tried to excuse it away by explaining that she began losing her voice during rehearsals, but no excuse was ever offered for the totally bizarre jig she launched into as an attempt to cover up the gaffe. She then fled the stage and let the band jam without her — arguably the best musical decision of the night.

~~I’m such a fan of Ke$ha’s and I’m so shocked to hear that her ‘SNL’ performance had gone wrong.
Marion “Suge” Knight and Kanye West will go head-to-toe in federal court. The December 6th trial, which will be held in Miami, is the result of a 2005 shooting at a Miami Beach party. As many as six shots were fired at the celebrity event which was hosted by Kanye West. Suge Knight was shot in the right leg, but there were few witnesses to come forward, and no arrests were made. Knight‘s attorney, Marc Brumer, has stated that Knight had $200,000 in medical bills from the gunshot wound which shattered his femur. He is seeking total damages of well over $1 million. In his lawsuit, Knight is claiming that Kanye and the Club’s owners failed to provide the security necessary to keep people with weapons from entering the event.
