Jennifer Lopez: Pregnant on the block?
Another ex has come out to claim J-Lo is pregnant. Jennifer Lopez’s ex-husband Chris Judd says the singer really is pregnant. He told People magazine: "She's always wanted to be a mother and now she's going to be. "I only wish her the best, I always have. I couldn't be any happier for her. I can't wait to see the baby." Recent pictures of Jennifer performing live have shown her with an apparent baby bump. But Jen still refuses to comment. That’s okay girl, you probably don’t want to jinx it.

Smooth sailing Rebecca Malope
Seems all is going well for the Queen of Gospel, who has had many publicised problems in the past. Now the singer has a successful TV show Gospel Times; a Metro FM Music award nomination and now she is about to set sail for Europe to launch a Euro tour. According to a Sunday paper, Rebecca is not worried about the language barrier in Germany and France. She said, “As long as I’m singing gospel, the audience will understand me.” Amen, sista! More parenting drama for Brit
Britney? A bad parent? No way! Yes way! Now her parenting coach has filed papers claiming the pop princess ignores her kids. The parenting coach - appointed by the court to supervise Britney's visits with Sean Preston, two, and 13-month-old Jayden James - has filed a report claiming the singer lives in her own world and doesn't pay much attention to her sons. The report also claimed Britney, 25, often disappeared during the court appointed visits and wasn't around her sons or the monitor. The singer reportedly spends much of her time on the phone and changing her outfits. Now this could be a problem for Britney who already has lost the kids to ex-husband Kevin Federline, should she try to appeal. Maybe her kids are just brats, has anybody considered that? Anyway, this is another predicament in Brit’s long list of dramas. Last week she ran over a photographer’s foot with her car and could face charges.

Brown Dash, you’re fired!
Remember that story we wrote about kwaito artist Brown Dash losing his car after leaving TS records for DJ Cleo’s Will of Steel Productions? (Read here to recap. Well his new label has had enough of him. Genoeg is genoeg! The record label claims they’ve said goodbye to the falling artist because of his “obstinacy and lack of work ethic he displayed.” No car, no record deal. Does this mean we’ll be seeing dash at the shebeen drowning his sorrows?

Mariah Carey a Desperate Housewife?
Hard to believe that the sexy high-octave singer dreams of being a wife and mother. The 37-year-old singer wants to start a family, and isn't prepared to have a baby out of wedlock. She said: "If I were to have a child, I would want to be married with a stable family environment. Not to say that's how everyone has to do it but it's the way I want to do things. "My parents divorced when I was young and I'm not saying it was unstable but it's not ideal either." Well she is rumoured to be dating Mark Sudack from her management team, even though she won’t admit it. So maybe marital bliss is not too far away.

Pink marital trouble
According to recent reports, the pop star Pink, who was recently in SA (see her live, here), is heading for divorce after regretting her decision to have an open marriage. The 28-year-old singer - who has been plagued by rumours her marriage to motocross star Carey Hart is on the rocks - is said to be tired of her husband's dalliances with other women. But when asked about their marriage last month, Carey, 32, said "everything's fine". A representative for Pink, 28, said rumours the couple are splitting up were "complete bulls**t." If the rumours are true, Carey’s little girlfriends should watch out cause Pink looks like she can kick some serious butt!
