Jay Z’s Alleged Mistress: ‘I Never Slept With Jay Z’

Jay Z‘s alleged mistress, Casey Cohen is threatening to sue the publications who named her as the catalyst that led to the break up ofBeyonce and Jay Z’s marriage. In a letter to Bauer Media Group — which owns several national magazines — Cohen claims she never slept with the aging rapper. Either she’s lying or Jay Z paid her off to save his marriage.

From TMZ:

The reality TV star accused of having an affair with JAY Z is flat out denying she ever had sex with BEYONCE’S man … and now she’s gearing up for a legal battle.

CASEY COHEN — who was on the Bravo show “Princesses: Long Island” — was named as Jay’s alleged side piece in several magazines (such as In Touch) … all owned by Bauer Media Group.

TMZ has learned Cohen has hired a lawyer who fired off a cease and desist letter saying Cohen and Jay Z “have never been in love or intimate” — and dismissing all the Bauer articles as “a foul and phony mistress-rumor.”

Cohen cops to having met Jay Z and Beyonce several times — in the letter, obtained by TMZ — but only through her job working as a VIP hostess in New York City.

She is demanding Bauer issue a public apology to her, Jay Z, and Beyonce … and remove all posts about her from the Internet.

We’ve reached out to Bauer Media, but no word back.

Michael Jordan is Officially a Billionaire

NBA legend Michael Jordan is officially a member of the billionaire boys club. The 51-year-old former Chicago Bulls star just added hundreds of millions of dollars to his personal wealth by increasing his ownership in the Charlotte Hornets from 80% to 89.5%. Before expanding his portfolio Jordan had a net worth of $750 million.

From Forbes.com:

Jordan first became an investor in the Hornets (then the Bobcats) in 2006 and became the controlling owner in 2010 when he bought out Robert Johnson for $175 million. Sports bankers say the Hornets are presently worth between $600 million and $625 million. The Milwaukee Bucks sold for $550 million in May, and they are considered the least valuable team in the league.

Our net worth figure for Jordan uses the $600 million figure. The Hornets have $135 million of debt, which makes Jordan’s equity in the team worth $416 million. After subtracting all the cash Jordan has invested in the team, we estimate his net worth outside of the Hornets to be $600 million, giving him a net worth of a $1 billion.


Pink Covers Who Magazine

The singer known as Pink posed in her birthday suit on the cover of Who magazine’s body issue.

The “Try” singer said she overcame her body image concerns because “I know I’m fit.” Pink, who posed completely nude for her photo layout, said “I’m in the best shape of my life.”

Inside the issue Pink discussed how she embraced her post-pregnancy body. She is 10 pounds overweight three years after giving birth to her daughter. “I’m a person who could always lose a couple [pounds] here and there, but I would rather be strong than bony,” she said.

“I’m so much more patient with myself.”

New Music: Rick Ross “Good Kisser (Remix)”

We know Rick Ross has been in the gym trying to get right for the summer, but he’s also been putting in work in the studio. The MMG mogul has been on a remix tear all year, leaving almost no ladies’ jam untouched. Having already showered Miguel’s “How Many Drinks,” Kanye West’s “Bound 2” and K Camp’s “Cut Her Off” with his boastful bars, the biggeszt bawse lets his silver tongue loose on Usher’s groovy single, “Good Kisser.”

T.I. Takes His Daughter to Tony Awards; Disses ‘Shekanas’ Everywhere

Rap tycoon Clifford “T.I.” Harris, Jr. took his 13-year-old daughter, Deyjah Harris, as his date to the Tony Awards in NYC yesterday. T.I. and other VIP guests attended the 2014 Antoinette Perry “TONY” Awards presented by The Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing at Radio City Music Hall, Rockefeller Center in NYC on Sunday.

The 33-year-old rapper, actor, and producer stirred emotions on social media when he explained the Tony Awards to the “Shekana” types on social media– a reference to his less intellectual, ghetto fabulous “Family Hustle” co-star, Shekinah Jo.

Shekinah promptly responded with her own post, spelling her name right and explaining the meaning behind her name (“Glory to God”).

This could all be a publicity stunt for the show — which lags behind VH1′s other popular Atlanta-based reality show, Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta, by about a million viewers.

I understand getting the ratings numbers up, but at the same time, VH1 has cast T.I. and his wife,Tameka Harris as this generation’s Cosbys — and public image is one thing advertisers care about.

Ciara Fuels Break Up Rumors

Singer Ciara fueled break-up rumors when she was spotted out & about with her newborn son,Future Zahir Wilburn, over the weekend.

Ciara was spotted pushing her son in a stroller in a Los Angeles neighborhood. The 28-year-old single mom was accompanied by a wet nurse and a friend who walked Ciara’s dogs.

Other bloggers note that Ciara was missing an important accessory: her engagement ring.

Since the baby was born in Mt. Sinai three weeks ago, rumors have swirled that Ciara and her baby daddy, rapper Future Hendrix, have split up.

According to the rumor mill, Future was not present for the baby’s birth. But, in an interview with US Weekly, he did vow to be a loving, hands-on father to the baby a day after the birth.

“She’ll be a great mom. She’s working at it every day and over time, I think she’ll be the best,” he said.

Future, who has 3 other children with as many women, was seen cuddling with troubled singerRihanna in a NYC recording studio last week. They were also spotted partying together at a nightclub.

So far Ciara has remained silent on the topic of her latest failed relationship.

Who Wore It Worse: Rita Ora or Rihanna?

Hey Sandra,
How are you? Just wanted to send you a picture of Rihanna and Rita Ora (most recent outing) wearing the same Christian Dior Little Black Dress. And Rita Ora slays more to me in the dress than Rihanna.

A friend of mine in Rihanna’s camp tells me Rihanna is well aware of Rita’s sudden increase in media and on blogs, so look for Rihanna and her team to be making more headlines this summer to prevent Rita from slipping through the cracks.

I told my friend in Rihanna’s camp Rita Ora still needs a hit record to come for Rihanna like Iggy Azalea has done with her hit single “Fancy” for Nicki Minaj’s rap throne, and she agreed. I hope you are having a great weekend!
