According to the NY Post, Usher is set to fire his Momma anyday now: Usher could have quite a Mother’s Day surprise for his mom, Jonetta Patton. The R&B superstar may be easing her out as his manager, according to insiders. The muscle behind the push is said to be Usher’s fiancee, Tameka Foster. “They definitely don’t get along,” one spy tells us. “Tameka came to Jonetta’s birthday on April 6. They hugged and posed for photos, but it was all for the cameras.” The rift dates back to when Jonetta encouraged Usher to fire Tameka as his stylist. “Tameka went on the radio and took some shots at Jonetta,” says a source. But Usher, 28, still liked Tameka, 38, and vice versa. In fact, she ended up leaving her husband for him. (Reps are denying she’s pregnant.) “Tameka has a hold over him,” says one friend. “Nobody can figure it out. Some people think he may make Tameka his manager.” Execs at Jive, Usher’s label, are said to be concerned. “They think Jonetta’s done an incredible job with his career. They’re encouraging her to take on Britney Spears.” A rep for Usher scoffed at talk that he's firing his mom: "I don't know of any management changes at this time." xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx HOUSE OF GLITZ: STILL DEVELOPING

"He's not doing a DNA test and he's not signing the birth certificate," Brown told PEOPLE Tuesday at a party for the U.S. launch of the BOOTS beauty brand in Hollywood. "So it's going to have to go to court so he can be forced to do it, which is strange since he was the one asking for it." Brown, 31, who has an 8-year-old daughter, Phoenix, with her ex-husband, has long maintained that Murphy, 46, is her new baby's father, although he told a Dutch TV show in December: "I don't know whose child that is until it comes out and has a blood test." xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx HOUSE OF GLITZ: ALREADY A DEAD BEAT DAD...THAT'S O.K. HE WILL OWE BACK SUPPORT IN THE END!!!... Murphy also has not contacted Brown since Angel was born, Brown said: "He hasn't seen his daughter. My people have contacted his people and they just had no response to anything."

new girlfriend Alicia Etheridge. Well, apparently, Alicia is also his new manager (and maybe his fiancee?). Way to keep a lock on that cash! According to C.J. who writes for the Star Tribune, Alicia, who moved in with Bobby after his breakup with ex-wife Whitney Houston, is very definitely running things. She almost looks like a lighter version of Whitney. C.J. was invited to attend a recent Bobby Brown concert at Trocaderos in downtown Minneapolis. Before the show, Trocaderos' CEO, Shane Segal, introduced me to Brown. He looked nervous, so I want to know how he was feeling. "Good," Brown said. A woman, a Slenderoni, if you will, about one-third the size of Brown's stage dance partner, said, "Wait until he comes off, OK. You can talk to him when he comes off [stage]." Segal got a kick out of seeing me blown off by the woman he called "the girlfriend. "She's got spunk," Segal said. "You've got to like that." Moments later I noticed the backstage door being held open. Outside, Brown was pacing. I asked Bobby whether he was dating these days. "No, no, no, C.J. You can't do that right now. No personal questions. Not before the show. Absolutely, no," said a guy I as-sume was a Trocaderos staffer. Why not? "That's part of the contract we've got with him, no personal questions." Just then, the Slenderoni returned. Are you Bobby's girlfriend? I asked. "His manager," she said. OK, then, "manager." Brown's "manager" looks a lot like the woman some gossip sources believe will be his next wife. In Touch Weekly has written: "Bobby Brown is wasting no time getting hitched again. Bobby is ready to propose to his live-in girlfriend, Alicia Etheridge." xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx HOUSE OF GLITZ: STILL DEVELOPING!!

Ray J actually celebrated the release of his acted out sextape on Friday at The Mirage Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Guess who the chicks in the photo above are suppose to dressed up as? If you guessed Kim K, then you win a bootleg copy… This appearance at this party not only confirms that he was the one who sold the video, but that he’s also probably looking for some sort of career in the porn industry…
Ne-Yo’s second album Because of You hits stores this Tuesday, May 1st. Here’s what the critics are saying about his new CD. Los Angeles Times: This Ne-Yo album makes no secret that it’s mainlining Michael Jackson and Prince for inspiration. “Sex With My Ex” and “Addicted” are adequate Prince homages, with their chugging electric guitars and churchy organs. But most of the other songs are too formulaic to be truly addictive. 2 1/2 out of 4 stars Entertainment Weekly: Ne-Yo’s second album, by contrast, makes it very clear what’s on his mind: Michael Jackson. Because of You’s polished string sections and muted horns could have been recorded in 1979, but they sound elegant, not dated. Unlike Jackson, Ne-Yo sometimes lets his polite style shade into stiffness. B+ New York Times: Ne-Yo has found an enthusiastic audience among the young female listeners who watch BET’s “106 and Park” and buy tickets for the teenager-friendly “Scream” tour. The new album will keep them happy, but it’s clearly an attempt to win over their parents.
