Years ago Beyonce‘s claim to fame was being 1/3 of the group Destiny’s Child whose song titles repeated the same word three times– “No, No, No and “Bills, Bills, Bills.” Bey put on her solo artist wings and flew, but not before Destiny’s Child became one of the highest selling girl groups of all time. Actress Angela Bassett remembers being in awe of Beyonce at a VH1 Divas live show way back before Destiny’s child would become Destiny’s superstar icon.
Celebs gathered in NYC last night for the screening of Bey’s HBO documentary “Life Is But A Dream.” Angela Bassett (yes, the woman who lit her cheating husband’s car on fire in Waiting To Exhale) recalled watching Bey perform at VH1 Divas. “They may have been celebrating Diana Ross,” Angela Bassett said. “Destiny’s Child was there, and I declare, I just could not keep my eyes off of her.”

As we reported last week, Usher‘s stepson Kyle Glover – whose mother is Tameka Foster – was declared brain dead by doctors following a boating accident July 6.
Usher’s ex-wife will be forced to take her 11-year-old son off life support as early as next month because his insurance coverage is about to expire, TMZ reports.
According to sources close to the family, Tameka has not lost hope that her son can make a drastic recovery. Apparently she is telling friends that she still believes in miracles.
Reportedly, Tameka can only keep Kyle on life support as long as her insurance company agrees to pay since she doesn’t have the funds to cover the hospital bills.
Sources say that Usher – who has helped raise Kyle for several years – has been supportive during this difficult time. However, he has not offered to pay for any medical bills. Tameka does not see him as a viable financial option.
Kyle was riding on an inner tube and was struck by a Jet Ski driven by a 38-year-old man. He was declared brain dead days later.

Madonna’s Kids Get Competitive

MADONNA‘s kids are getting competitive.
According to Britain’s Daily Star newspaper, Lourdes, 15, and Rocco, 11, have been given jobs on their mother’s 86-date MDNA tour.
Lourdes will be in the wardrobe department, while Rocco’s job is onstage.
“Rocco and Lourdes have developed a really competitive spirit as they take up roles on their mum’s tour,” a source said.
“Lourdes is in charge of fashion and wardrobe and is responsible for picking outfits for at least 10 of the dancers. Rocco is doing a series of breakdances and singing on a few tracks. Between the two of them, they are constantly involved in one-upmanship.”
“Madonna has taken an army of helpers along with her for the children, including five nannies and eight private tutors.
“The cost must be absolutely phenomenal with their hotel bills, food and wages.
“It’s all working out completely differently to how Madonna had hoped it would go and is creating family scenes.
“The kids are already causing her a massive headache and she had originally planned for her other two children David and Mercy to join them at some point. She’s close to tearing her hair out.”

Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins of TLC has filed for bankruptcy for the second time this year after being unable to pay her mortgages on her $1.2 million home in Georgia. This isn’t the first or the second time she’s had money woes either, as TLC filed for bankruptcy as early as the mid ’90′s. The singer also filed for bankruptcy on February 25, this year, but the case was dismissed on September 13 as, “she made distribution of all funds paid into the hands of the Trustee.”
T-Boz also states that she is unable to pay her medical bills or car payments either. Documents filed last month at the U.S. Bankruptcy Court reveal a very grim situation as she owes people $768,642.99 whereas she’s only worth $1,716,508. Strangely enough, T-Boz is also owed $250,000 in child support payments. The fact that she hasn’t collected the money is a mystery.
