The late singer’s mother Katherine Jackson – who acts as a co-legal guardian for his children Prince Michael, 17, Paris, 15 and Blanket, 10, – has filed a motion asking the judge presiding over the court case to exclude any evidence relating to their paternity.
According to legal documents, obtained by gossip website TMZ.com, Katherine Jackson claimed that the jury does not need to know anything about her grandchildren’s biological parentage.
Budding actor and TV presenter Prince Michael and his sister Paris are believed to be the children of their father’s ex-wife Debbie Rowe, while Blanket is said to have been born via a surrogate mother.
The family is suing AEG Live – who sponsored Michael’s This Is It tour – for the alleged negligent hiring and supervision of Dr Conrad Murray, who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter for his role in Michael’s death.
The 82-year-old Jackson family matriarch has also asked the judge exclude any mention of the Michael’s child molestation claims as well as any mention of her other children’s financial problems.
The family is reportedly worried that AEG might try to argue that the real reason the family are pursing them in the reported $40 billion lawsuit is money.
A judge has not yet ruled on the motions.

The most pleasing thing about the Mercedes-Benz is that every time with their new offerings they have something more to offer in terms of luxurious offerings and great features in their cars. In other ways, it’s all about pushing the levels of automotive excellence a step further, which to a very large extent, gets done very effectively by Mercedes’ competitors brands like Audi as well. This year’s 2014 Audi RS7 is the immediate heavy duty competition known. However, Mercedes is set to retain its charm with the 2014 S-Class luxury sedan, whose interior photographs have only recently been released. Pleasing as ever, it hypothetically could well be standing up to the reputation of ‘the best automobile in the world’. Though the exterior is not known to the media as yet, but interiors have been given a royal luxurious touch in terms of craftsmanship and detailing.
Mercedes hasn’t taken a radical step towards changing the interiors, but leapt ahead with great attention to the finesse of the interior setup. Hopefully, it is both high-tech and luxurious as well. Best of wood varieties, ultra-refined finishing, leather trimmings and metal fittings are the usual show, but the effort to make it all lavish shows, speaks out loud.
Speaking of the hi-tech features, there is the entertainment and productivity suite with dual screens for the rear seats, along with reclining and massaging arrangements for each of the passengers. The space has been intelligently used to give a very comfortable reclining facility of 37-degrees, which could be helpful for a short power nap on long tiring journeys. Next comes the Burmester sound system with etched door speaker panels, all-digital instrument panel display which is 12.3-inches wide and has a relatively high resolution for something in these settings. Going to the more advanced feature, there is the dual zone air-balance climate control with ionization and ‘air-perfuming’ facilities. For those pushing for even more, one can choose from a Burmester surround sound, or Burmester 3D surround sound system. Facebook and Google facilities have already become a presumed feature of the infotainment system.
For the colder months, in order for the ambiance to my welcoming enough and comforting, the Warm Comfort package from the company enables door panel and arm-rest heating, which are individually controllable, just like the steering wheel on the front. There are 14 air-activated bladders which works together to give the seats just the right temperature desired. Mercedes has revealed that there have been physiotherapists and psychologists who have worked in the interior designing, a first in the world of its kind.
After spending some mesmerizing moments with the finger-print magnet polished wood panels, with precision stitched off-white leather wrappings, apart with the highly advanced technical features of the infotainment system, one looking for a luxurious car, will certainly be very pleased with what the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class has to offer. However, we are just waiting if someone wants to get a further customized edition, which might land up in the list of most exotic editions of Mercedes-Benz.
Add global fashion model to her resume.
Beyoncé, the Grammy-winning singer and supermom to baby Blue Ivy, is the newest face of fast fashion brand H&M.
The Swedish retailer confirmed on Thursday that Beyoncé will appear in ads for its island-inspired summer campaign, shot on the beaches of Nassau in the Bahamas.
The cheap-but-chic collection includes bodycon pieces, sundresses and swimwear, including a tie-dyed bikini.
H&M called the campaign an “epic fantasy” and said Beyoncé’s influence is evident in the designs.
Queen Bey, who announced last month she’s embarking on a four-month “Ms. Carter Show” world tour in April, is a fan of H&M.
She applauded the “fun and affordable fashion” in a statement.
Beyoncé will also appear in a commercial for the brand, which will feature one of her new songs, “Standing on the Sun.”
The summer line hits H&M stores in May.
Pop automaton Will.i.am’s Twitter-trendable new LP, ‘#willpower’, has been given a release date: 22 Apr. Yes, that’s right.
Miley Cyrus, Waka Flocka Flame, Lil Wayne, Nichole Scherzinger, kid-rapper Baby Kaely (who’s seven, by the way) and Chris Brown (who hasn’t been seven for a while) feature on its veritable filofax of collaborators. As do Britney Spears, 2NE1 and Justin Bieber, but you probably know that.
Erm, what else. Oh, yeah, Will’s Bieber-starring new track ‘#thatPOWER’ is now officially taking up space on YouTube, so point your #face at it now:
Knowles, 31, recently released her new song titled “Bow Down/I Been On” that has upset the likes of fellow singer Cole, who does not agree with the former’s reference to women. After Cole let her Twitter followers know that she did not agree with Knowles’ message, Rowland tweeted a message about haters.
“The hating that women do with each other- it’s going to kill us as a race of people,” Rowland tweeted, quoting singing legend Chaka Khan in the process.
Rowland’s message came shortly after Cole criticized Knowles’ use of profane lyrics to refer to women in her latest release. The song was filled with more expletives than the singer’s fans are used to hearing from the Houston, Texas native.
“I took my time to live my life but don’t think I’m just his little wife / Don’t get it twisted, get it twisted / This is my s—,” Knowles sings.
The chorus of the song follows up with the singer spouting expletives at her critics.
“Bow down, b——,” Knowles sings repeatedly.
Cole took to her Twitter to speak out about her peer’s lyrics after the song was released on Sunday.
“First ‘women need to stick together’ now b—— bow. Smh,” Cole tweeted. “But when I speak my mind its a prob. #Well #StayMad…Can’t stand when people all self righteous when it’s convenient it makes them look good.”
Cole has been vocal about her feelings toward both Knowles and her Destiny’s Child singing group members in the past. She spoke out against Michelle Williams last February after watching her perform alongside Destiny’s Child group members Rowland and Knowles at the 2013 Super Bowl halftime show.
“I think I was frightened to blink for a sec. Then Michelle sung and woke my a– up from my daze,” Cole exclaimed to over 200,000 followers on the social networking website. “She’s always f—— the groove up.”
Although Cole managed to give Knowles credit for her portion of the performance, a number of people sounded off on the singer for critiquing Williams. Rowland, 32, defended her group member against Cole in a more candid manner.
“It didn’t even make it on my radar until other people brought it up. It didn’t even matter. We had a wonderful performance, and that’s all I cared about,” Rowland told RollingStone.com. “I was with my sisters and the three of us matter to each other, and that’s all that counts … we matter to a lot more people, with all due respect, than her. So, I really don’t care what she said.”
A 21-year-old man is accused of raping an 11-year-old girl, who is now heavily pregnant and about to give birth.
Investigators say the sexual abuse occurred over the course of a year when the accused man, Deandre Devon Davis-Williams, would sneak into the girl’s Houston apartment and rape her while her mother was away at work.
Officials at the girl’s school became suspicious that the student was pregnant in January and they discovered she was already seven months along.

‘It’s definitely one of the more heinous crimes we’ve seen,’ Sara Marie Kinney, from the Harris County District Attorney’s Office, told KTRK-TV.
Davis-Williams has been arrested and charged with continuous sexual assault of a child.
Police say the sexual abuse occurred over the course of one year.
The man would allegedly enter through the back door of her apartment almost everyday and would force himself on her, ignoring her pleas to stop.
‘It was about a year that this abuse was occurring continuously, very often,’ Kinney said.
The mother only learned of the shocking abuse in January, when officials from the girl’s school expressed concern that the girl may be pregnant.
‘This case will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,’ Kinney said.
The man allegedly tried to convince the girl to keep her pregnancy a secret and threatened to kill himself if she told anyone.

tough week. As if his hospital stay wasn’t stressful enough, Weezy also had to deal with reports that he was being prepared for his last rites — reports his camp strongly denies. As you can imagine, Wayne wasn’t too happy.
“I was actually sitting right next to him, honestly, when it happened, and his mom was in the other room, and his face dropped,” Young Money president Mack Maine told MTV News correspondent Sway Calloway when he appeared on Wednesday’s (March 20) “RapFix Live.” “I just saw it in his face, like, ‘I can’t believe that.’ ”
After suffering from a seizure March 12, Lil Wayne was taken to Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles, where he remained for six days. The star rapper was sent home Monday as conflicting reports about his health swirled. Through it all, Mack Maine, Birdman and the rest of Weezy’s YMCMB family messaged that he was doing well, while TMZ reported that his seizures where linked to syrup abuse and that the rapper was being prepped for his last rites.
“A lot of blogs and stuff put out some foolishness, but that wasn’t true,” Mack said. “He has four kids. Imagine his daughter hearing that somewhere in school or something like that, so he wasn’t too happy about that.”
Now that Weezy is finally home, Mack took the time to thank all the concerned parties who sent their well-wishes during the drama.
“He’s blessed, he’s up, he’s in good spirits, and we’d like to thank all the fans for the prayers. A lot of people reached out and showed love, but Wayne’s at home, he’s relaxing,” he said, assuring the public that all is well. “He’s actually been in good health for a minute. They just wanted to run a few tests on him, that’s why they kept him longer than expected, but he’s been good.”
Dennis Rodman has been everywhere lately, traveling the globe to do good and solve problems…but the biggest problem he may have is dealing with his ex wife. Here’s the scoop via Radar Online, “Rodman’s divorce from his ex-wife, Michelle, has finally been completed and the court documented agreement between the two gives a shocking glimpse at the current state of the Celebrity Rehab star’s life — including being $750k in debt and Rodman is only permitted to see his two children with Michelle, Trinity, 11, Dennis Thayne, 10, twice a month for a period not to exceed 4 hours at a time, in the presence of a retired Orange County Sheriff” Let’s be honest, Dennis Rodman is truly the most interesting man in the world.-TO
New Chrysler 200 is often a merchandise with the continuous improving that were only available in Next year while Chrysler 200 Four door as well as sports convertible brother were created from This year Chrysler Sebring by simply ordering a corner sway pub, auto tires along with suspensions geometry, increasing the centre rotate, softened the particular ride fee, stiffened our bodies supports and also reducing the sound by making use of acoustic wine glass for that windshield and also the front facet windows. This particular replacing is set to continue until 2014 when the car will be absolutely overhauled.
A couple of powertrains are already designed for the particular New Chrysler 200: a 3.6 re Pentastar V-Six motor as well as a 2.Four actu Four-cylinder motor. The majority of the trims use a Six-speed programmed transmission technique along with handbook transfer mode, but the starting designs include a Four-speed automated. While using search engines, speeding via 0-60miles-per-hour is going to be possible throughout 9.6 secs.
Rick Ross raps about living in the lap of luxury so emphatically, and it’s a wonder that it’s taken him this long to act the part. Reebok tapped Rozay for the starring role in their latest commercial for a line of white on white sneakers, that include the Question Low, Workout Plus, Classic Leather, Workout Mid, Twilight Zone Pump, ExoFit Hi, Phase 1 and DMX 10.
The MMG’s frontman chills poolside garbed like an extra in 2pac’s “I Ain’t Mad At Cha” video at a lavish mansion locale, that came complete with beautiful women, a personal chef, and a flamingo. None of these factors defer attention from the commercial’s main premise – the icy white Reebok Classic.
With the scene set, slapstick humor fueled the remainder of the minute-long spot. We won’t entirely spoil things for you, but let’s just say that the “Box Chevy” rapper did more than reprimand the chef for making a costly mistake. See Rick Ross live white hot below.
“Now it’s Wop’s turn” announced Gucci Mane, as he officially changed his name to Guwop recently… for all of 32 minutes. This isn’t exactly his first attempt at updating his public image; after all, this is a man who tattooed a fairly sizeable ice cream cone onto his own face back in 2011. But while Gucci’s in[k]famous new look had coincided with a stuttering phase in his career marred by prison sentences and a creative drought, Gucci has recently been enjoying the kind of momentum which made him such a captivating presence to begin with.
Gucci isn’t alone in finding his feet again either; his 1017 Brick Squad collective and extended ATLien family have been a dominant force in forward-looking rap music during 2013. Propelled by unusual, warped synth progressions, hi hat rolls and trunk-rattling low-end, the sound of Atlanta at the moment is as weird as anything you might traditionally associate with underground or leftfield rap. While Waka Flocka Flame and OJ Da Juiceman have made vigorous returns in recent months by expanding on their own bonkers formulae, Future has been toying with auto-tune to peel away some of rap’s testosterone, revealing vulnerable, even romantic qualities. Meanwhile Young Thug has defied his own uninspired moniker, making an emotive mess that could be the best or the worst thing I’ve heard all year. Whatever these records might or might not make you feel, though, it’s difficult to deny their progressive intent.
Then there’s Young Scooter, Gucci’s new partner in crime, who is also having a promising year of his own. His Street Lottery mixtape – released in January – is a more down-the-line vision of street struggles, but its bleak, heavy-hearted outlook is engaging and offers a nice counterpoint for Brick Squad’s larger personalities. That’s mostly how it works on Free Bricks 2, as Scooter settles into the tape’s moody, late-night aesthetic, while Gucci lets his mind wander in his inimitable word-drunk style. It’s audible when Gucci is enjoying his writing and now is one of the times, using the anxiousness in the production to arrive at intimidating, if partly goofy threats like: “I got mob ties, you moulinyan, you a fucking prick / kiss your cheek and say capiche and then I mail your mum your dick.”
Perhaps it’s that there’s been an overload of full-throttle trap maximalism of late, but it’s the slower, simplistic productions which feel most effective here. The looped piano motif which forms the backdrop for ‘Re-Up’, for example, is a perfect fit for Scooter’s resourceful hustling (“I can still cook it with the dope wet, 20% bricks I can work with that”), while the wistful ‘Faster’ finds Gucci back behind bars, counting the days with the longing of a man intimate with the sadness of serving time. Waka Flocka Flame too, is deployed effectively in a rare subdued role, providing the hook to the Zaytoven produced ‘Remix rerock’ that stresses the numbness at the heart of the song’s drug-pushing tales.
RiRi showed up two hours late for her show in Montreal, Canada Sunday night, according to The Sun.
While Bieber fans booed the 19-year-old pop star in London ealier this month when he made the same move, Rihanna’s fans were a bit more understanding of her tardiness.
They crowd gave her a positive reception when she finally took the stage but she made no apologies for her late arrival.
“You owned my LIFE yesterday!! Thank you for that, you were BRILLIANT!!,” she Tweeted about the show.
The “We Found Love” singer is recovering from laryngitis, which forced her to cancel two performances during the kick-off week of her “Diamonds” tour.
She struggled to hit some high notes over the weekend as her voice is still healing.
RiRi’s love life has hit the rumor mill yet again this week with reports surfacing Monday that she is planning to tie the knot with her on-again-off-again boyfriend Chris Brown this coming summer.
The Barbados beauty allegedly wants to hold the affair at her home beaches and wear a bikini to say ‘I do’
“Rihanna doesn’t want a big dress or boring old confetti,” an insider told Now Magazine.
“She wants to get married in her bikini and have a carnival atmosphere. They want it to be relaxed and fun, like a “playground”, and to celebrate with the people who have stood by them
MANILA, Philippines – Grammy Award-winning musical artist Shawn “JAY Z” Carter has collaborated with writer/producer/director Baz Luhrmann on “The Great Gatsby”—in the capacity of Executive Producer—to bring the modern “Jazz Age” energy of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s original text to the big screen, procuring, performing, producing and arranging for a soundtrack featuring some of the world’s top musical artists.
JAY Z’s contributions, woven amongst a score by long-time Luhrmann collaborator, composer Craig Armstrong, drive Gatsby’s champagne-infused dance floors, rumble in New York’s illegal speakeasies, and foreshadow the tragedy behind Gatsby’s “extraordinary gift for hope.” To articulate the film’s “1920s-Meets-Now” sound, JAY Z also comes to “The Great Gatsby” soundtrack as a performer and contributor of original music.
Luhrmann and JAY Z were introduced by Leonardo DiCaprio (Jay Gatsby), and this led to a two-year collaborative effort. During this time, JAY Z worked with Luhrmann and his team to capture, translate and contrast the feelings of Fitzgerald’s decadent era with that of our own, using hip-hop and jazz, music contemporary and period, to bring two distinct American moments to simultaneous life. They sculpted the film’s musical landscape alongside Armstrong, who worked with the director on “Moulin Rouge!” and “Romeo + Juliet.” The film’s music supervisor is Anton Monsted.
Luhrmann calls the collaboration with JAY Z “a credible and natural fit. Fitzgerald was a pioneer, famed and controversial for using the then-new and explosive sound called jazz in his novels and short stories—not just as decoration, but to actively tell story using the immediacy of pop culture. He coined the phrase ‘the Jazz Age.’ So, the question for me in approaching Gatsby was how to elicit from our audience the same level of excitement and pop-cultural immediacy toward the world that Fitzgerald did for his audience? And in our age, the energy of jazz is caught in the energy of hip-hop. Not only is JAY Z a great artist, full stop, but I had heard that he was a great collaborator. Leonardo and I were lucky enough to be present in a recording session over two years ago as JAY Z was recording ‘No Church in the Wild,’ and the collaboration grew from there.”
JAY Z said, “As soon as I spoke with Baz and Leonardo, I knew this was the right project. The Great Gatsby is that classic American story of one’s introduction to extravagance, decadence and illusion. It’s ripe for experimentation and ready to be interpreted with a modern twist. The imagination Baz brought to ‘Moulin Rouge’ made it a masterpiece, and ‘Romeo + Juliet’s’ score wasn’t just in the background; the music became a character. This film’s vision and direction has all the makings of an epic experience.”
“The Great Gatsby” soundtrack will be released by Interscope Records.
(Opening across the Philippines on May 15, “The Great Gatsby” will be distributed in IMAX® 3D, Digital 3D and regular format by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.)
Los Angeles (CNN) — Rapper Lil Wayne has been released from a Los Angeles hospital where he was taken after suffering a seizure last week, his publicist said late Monday night.
The 30-year-old rapper’s hospitalization at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center triggered media reports that he was near death — rumors his associates were quick to squash. Few details about his medical condition were made public.
On Monday night, Mack Maine, the president of Wayne’s label, Young Money, thanked the hospital.
“@LilTunechi has been officially been released and is headed home…God is great,” he tweeted.
Lil Tunechi is Lil Wayne’s nickname, as well as his Twitter handle.
An online report that Lil Wayne was near death and on life support Friday cause panic among his fans and caused Twitter to light up with messages of concern.
“I’m good everybody,” the rapper tweeted Friday evening, helping defuse the concerns. “Thnx for the prayers and love.”
Young Money publicist Sarah Cunningham acknowledged Friday that Lil Wayne had had a seizure, but members of the New Orleans artist’s camp have shot down reports that he was near death.
“Dont believe the nonsense about comas and tubes to breathe … that’s false!!” Maine tweeted Friday night.
Instead of ighting for his life, Lil Wayne was watching the Syracuse University Orange play the Georgetown Hoyas in the Big East men’s basketball tournament, he said.
Born Dwayne Carter, Lil Wayne is one of the rap world’s most successful artists.
He won best rap album for “Tha Carter III” at the 2008 Grammy awards and took home three more Grammys the next year.
Beyond winning over critics, he’s also been a commercial success.
In September, Billboard reported the rapper had tallied 109 hits on its Hot 100, surpassing the record previously held by Elvis Presley.
But he’s also run into trouble outside the studio and off stage.
Lil Wayne was arrested in 2007 outside New York City’s Beacon Theater after police said they found a .40-caliber pistol on his tour bus. He pleaded guilty to felony gun charges and spent eight months at New York’s Rikers Island jail.
With visual mediums advancing more by the day, it is truly a fantasy coming to life about what the possibilities have now come to. We had seen Samsung bring the world’s first curved OLED TV, Harrod’s marketing the Panasonic 152-inch TV, LG’s 55-inch OLED TV, or even the other Panasonic 103-inch plasma. To take art and electronics a level higher, Philips brings in the 2013 DesignLine HDTV, which will appear to be no more than square piece of glass than the heavy duty electronics it is supposed to be. It is now about viewership with general aesthetics to go with it.
The 2013 Philips DesignLine HDTV will be available in a total of 3 fitting options. There will be a mounting table, or the optional design to fit it as a part of a larger entertainment system. The 3rd and perhaps the most artistic options of mounting will be using the TV as a wall hanging against a suitable part of the room. This means that, even when the device is switched off, attention towards it will be obvious and in plenty. The physical advantage comes courtesy TP Vision, who has taken it to manufacture products for Philips for Russia, Brazil, and larger part of Europe, Argentina, Uruguay, Middle East, and even Asia Pacific.
Available in 2 screen sizes of 46 and 55-inch width, there will be a LCD display just behind the front glass sheet. To ensure high quality of viewing, the TV features a 1,400 Hz Perfect Motion Rate alongside the active 3D HD capabilities. There will be a dual-core processor which will help the engine of the Perfect pixel HD screen. One could even witness LED backlighting with micro-dimming and local contrast for all decorative reasons.
Since multiple feature device are the demand of the times, this TV will also be capable of connecting to the wi-fi connection of your home, and help you surf the net via a simple switch button on the remote control. Also, if there are videos or photos you would like to see on the screen, the Wi-fi Miracast, Philips MyRemote App, or SimpleShare applications will come to your aid.
Even thought the TV looks a bit unstable because of the absence of any rubber stops, the very touch of the floor, will convert this opaque black glass sheet into a transparent one. When it is off the ground hanging on the wall, it’s a very elegant piece of gradient black wall hanging, which comes to life on demand. However, it is not going to very easily available everywhere. The prices are still shrouded in mystery and only parts of Europe, including Russia will witness it, before it heads to other major markets.
“I took some time to live my life/ But don’t think I’m just his little wife/ Don’t get it twisted, get it twisted/ This my shit, bow down, bitches,” Mrs. Carter proclaims on the heavy-hitting anthem.
The song segues into another one called “I Been On,” helmed by Polow Da Don, Timbaland, and Planet VI. A thuggish B pays homage to her Houston roots, chopping and screwing her voice while shouting out H-town legends Willie D, Pimp C, and UGK.
“I heard your boo was talking lip/ I told my crew to smack that trick,” she raps, adding, “The capital B means I’m ’bout that life.”
Hear B like you’ve never heard her before.
The 23-year-old took to Twitter on Sunday to reveal that Kiss Land will serve as the follow-up to last year’s Trilogy.
“gonna drop some information for the fans today,” he tweeted before revealing an image of the title spelled out in neon green.
The Weeknd released his Trilogy compilation in November featuring material off his three mixtapes—House of Balloons, Thursday, and Echoes of Silence. The album debuted at No. 4, selling 86,000 copies in its first week.
Guess its already started K.Michelle starts a raving beef with Kirk Frost and it got really ugly read below.
Rapper Lil Wayne is recovering in a Los Angeles hospital, although his exact medical condition continues to remain unclear.
CNN reports that a friend said Saturday night after visiting Lil Wayne: “He’s good, just resting.”
Also on Saturday, at a surprise SXSW appearance at the Afghan Whigs show, Usher asked fans to pray for his pal.
“One of my fellow artists, good friend, Lil Wayne is going through a real hard time right now, y’all,” he told the crowd. “And I just want to send a lot of positive attitude about his state. And a lot of positive energy out there right now. Can you guys make some noise for Lil Wayne one time? You know it’s ultimately about positive energy. You believe in that? So one time make some noise.”
TMZ had reported the star, 30, was in a medically induced coma, causing a flurry of concern over the rapper’s health on Friday night.
But Mack Maine, president of Lil Wayne’s Young Money label, downplayed the seriousness of the visit, tweeting, “Dont believe the nonsense about comas and tubes to breathe … that’s false!!”
Maine added, via Twitter, that he and Lil Wayne had been watching the Syracuse University Orange play the Georgetown Hoyas in the Big East men’s basketball tournament.
TMZ also reported that Wayne’s medical issues may have stemmed from going “on a Sizzurp binge,” because doctors found high amounts of codeine in his system.
The Daily Beast says in a new story that Weezy (as he is called) has had a “long habit of sipping ‘syrup, sizzurp, lean, or Texas tea’ as the real cause of his ailing health.” It’s an addictive habit, which involves sipping prescription-strength cough syrup laced with codeine and other extras that can increase the high.
No one has explained exactly what the rapper’s health problems are; publicist Kia Selby told CNN, “Lil Wayne is doing well.”
Through it all, Lil Wayne has had a parade of stars visit him at Cedars-Sinai, including American Idol judge Nicki Minaj, who was spotted at the hospital on Saturday night.
