We see her on the cover of damn near every magazine on the newstand but the former business manager of Rihanna is insinuating that the sultry wifey of Chris Brown might be in need of some financial assistance very soon. Patricia Williams who was up until very recently handling the singers financial arrangements was fired after Rihanna discovered only $20,000 in her account. Now PW is saying that Def Jam are not looking after Rhianna financially (surprise surprise) and all the money she makes from her endorsements etc are being spent by her manager on her albums and videos, without of course Rihanna’s approval. The trials and tribulations of being a recording artist today I guess.
Things obviously aren’t working out for JD in certain areas of his business. The PSM (pint sized mogul) has had to shut down his Atlanta eatery Cafe Dupri which is located in the Buckhead region of the city. Word is though that staff were left without their money once the place closed. PSM must be saving for his wedding afterall.
Not quite sure what or who Diddy is doing over at MTV but they may as well give him his own channel as he has already another show in the works called Starmaker which will give a male and female artist a spot on the Bad Boy roster. Auditions are being held in Hollywood on the 6th of September for anyone interested.
The DTP/Def Jam reject Bobby Valentino has secured himself a deal with EMI for his imprint, Blu Kolla Dreams. The first project for the Atlanta crooner will be an album aptly titled The Rebirth. Now there has never been any real explanation as to why Bobby V was dropped from Luda’s label. His debut went platinum and his sophomore went gold, which is pretty decent in this day and age. Let’s just hope he has the same success on his own imprint that he did lining the pockets of Def Jam.
