Ne-Yo Reveals “I Used To Be Married”

Many have questioned Ne-Yo about why he is not married to his longtime girlfriend and the mother of his two children, Monyetta Shaw. The two are rumored to be engaged, but Ne-Yo never wanted to rush marriage – maybe TMZ found out the reason.

Earlier this week Ne-Yo was leaving Supperclub in L.A. when one of their paps randomly asked if he’d ever been hitched.

Ne-Yo told us he actually WAS married 11 years ago when he was 19 — but he and his wife were only together a few months before they got an annulment.
He said, “Nobody really knows that. Nobody ever really asked.”
Ne-Yo then mocked his ex, explaining she never thought he’d make it in music.

Gay Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton welcomes baby boy

Perez Hilton is now a father to a baby boy!
The openly gay blogger, whose real name is Mario Lavandeira Jr., took to his eponymous blog Wednesday afternoon in a post titled "A Very Important Message from Perez" to share the news "directly from me, right here."
"I am ready to announce that earlier this month I was blessed with the birth of my first child, a beautiful and healthy baby boy — with lots of hair on his tiny head. My family is overjoyed at this newest and most cherished addition," the 34-year-old wrote.

 There was no word of who the birth mother was or the tiny tot's name, or if the child came to be through adoption or surrogacy. But Hilton did share a photo of himself cradling and gazing down at the little guy in what we presume is a hospital room.

MUST READ: 7 Ways to Stop Hurting Yourself

Life isn’t always a smooth ride.  It’s easy to stumble and fall and hurt yourself.  But these bumps and bruises are a necessary part of your growth – you fall down, you learn something, and then you brush yourself off and move forward.
The problem is, sometimes you fall and get stuck in one place for too long.  You find yourself spinning and unable to move like tires clenched in mud.  This happens when you feel unsure of yourself, or when your intentions are tarnished.  You get spiritually lost, bound by your perceptions and stuck deep in a pothole of miserable thinking.
Here are some ideas to help you get unstuck and navigate the road to healing.

1.  Get back on your own path.

If you’re thinking exactly like everyone else, then you aren’t thinking.  And the real trouble is if you don’t spend your life your way, other people will spend it their way.
Freedom lies in being bold.  Use your head to listen to your soul.  Find the path that best suits your calling and don’t settle until you’ve found it.  There’s no rush; life is a continuous journey.
As you cut your own path, be honest about who you are and don’t try to fool anyone.  If others don’t want to listen to you, let them fool themselves.  It means they aren’t really concerned with who you truly are in the first place.  They’ll likely continue to characterize you incorrectly no matter what you say.  Don’t argue with them; they’re obviously infatuated with some idea of a person that isn’t you.

Kanye and Kim put their home up for sale

About a month ago, it was reported that parents-to-be Kim and Kanye plunked down $11 million for a 10,000-square-foot Bel Air mansion.

Now it's being reported that the new Italian style home has been quietly put back on the market. That is according to The Real Estate Stalker.
Property records do indeed now reveal that in late January 2013 the couple - or at least Miss Kardashian through the same trust connected her former faux-Tuscan in the Bev Hills P.O.—coughed up an undisclosed amount of moolah for the big ol' Bel Air Crest crib in question that sits on three-quarters of an acre with scenic canyon and city views and was last listed with a $10,750,000 price tag.
However, don't count on K.K and Kanye to gut or expand the five bedroom and 6.5 bathroom mock-Med McMansion, as was previously reported they planned to do. In fact, don't even count on them moving into the damn house because, according to Patty, they are already in escrow to flip the pricey pad for about a million bucks more than the still unknown amount they paid for the place just three weeks ago.
