If alive, The Notorious B.I.G. would have turned 47 on Tuesday, March 21. And while his birthday (and the anniversary of his death honestly) is something of a special holiday for Hip-Hop fans and folks from Brooklyn, it has an extra special meaning for the late rapper’s protégé and former lover, Lil Kim. To honor him and the occasion, Kim hosted what would go on to be the first annual B.I.G. Family Dinner in NYC last night.

Though it was titled a family function, it seems the only person related to the rapper who was present was his daughter, T’yanna Wallace. There was no sign of Faith Evans, their son, Christopher Jordan Wallace, or B.I.G.’s mother, Voletta Wallace. Guests who were present included former Bad Boy artists Styles P and Jadakiss (no Diddy though), Fat Joe, Fabolous, DJ Mister Cee and Kim’s daughter, Royal Reign. Also present were all of the members of Junior M.A.F.I.A., including Lil Cease. His presence was a pretty big deal because he once testified against Lil Kim when she was on trial for lying to a federal grand jury about a shooting outside of Hot 97 in 2001. She was eventually convicted of perjury and conspiracy and served a one-year sentence. When she got out, they didn’t communicate for more than a decade. At the party, Cease apologized for the breakdown of their relationship.

“I apologize for things I may have done that may have hurt you or affected you or made you feel bad,” he said, according to VIBE. “I genuinely apologize, and I love you from the bottom of my heart. I thank you for bringing this energy here.”

Overall, the night seemed to be one filled with positive energy. The guests weren’t necessarily blood, but they were clearly family to one another — and B.I.G. Hit the flip to see photos from the soiree:

40 and Fabulous! Kourtney Kardashian Rocked Tiny Bikinis on Girls’ Trip: Pics

If you got it, flaunt it! Kourtney Kardashian was confident AF during a girls’ trip to Turks and Caicos — and flaunted her beach body all over Instagram.

The Poosh founder, 40, proved age is just a number while she showed off her toned physique in a variety of teeny tiny bikinis during the vacation alongside sister Khloé Kardashian and close pals including Larsa Pippen, Steph Shepherd, Malika Haqq, Khadijah Haqq and more.

“No boys allowed,” Kourtney captioned one Instagram video on Saturday, May 18, that showed her front and center in the group as the ladies held hands and ran towards the camera. The reality star rocked a metallic purple swimsuit in the shot.

Prior to that post, Kourtney nearly bared it all in a pale pink cut-out suit while she laid in the sand next to Shepherd, who looked just as stunning in matching swimwear. “L is for the way you look at me,” the post was captioned, with a nod to the pals’ positioning.

Also in tow for the trip was Khloé’s 13-month-old daughter, True, who appeared to be a perfect little travel buddy.

“After my morning workout, I took True for a walk on the beach. Baby True is a water baby,” the Strong Looks Better Naked author, 34, captioned an Instagram Story with the tot on Friday, May 17. “She wanted to go in so badly so I decided to get into the ocean with my GOOD AMERICAN workout clothes on. I couldn’t say no to her sweet face.”

And Khloé was no exception to the bikini-clad clan. The Good American cofounder showed off her curves in a printed one-piece swimsuit as well as a cheeky pink bikini. “We have created some bomb ass memories together. Keep em coming,” she captioned on group shot of some of the friends.

See Photos From Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner’s Surprise Las Vegas Wedding: Pics

They do! Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner married in a surprise Las Vegas wedding after the Billboard Music Awards on Wednesday, May 1.

Diplo posted video from the couple’s nuptials in front of an Elvis Presley impersonator dressed in a red jumpsuit.

The Game of Thrones star, 23, wore a white dress with a veil while her groom, 29, was dressed in a dark gray suit and white shirt for the ceremony where country stars Dan + Shay played their hit “Speechless” as Turner walked down the aisle.

The singer’s brothers Nick and Kevin Jonas were in attendance for the nuptials, which concluded with the celebrant singing “Viva Las Vegas” while the couple danced and the friends and family in attendance cheered.

Entertainment Tonight reports that the pair got a marriage license earlier in the day.

The couple, who were first linked in fall 2016, announced their engagement in October 2017 with matching photos on Instagram that showed off the British star’s stunning pear-shaped diamond engagement ring. “I said yes,” she wrote on her post, while the DNCE frontman captioned his, “She said yes.” Joe’s father, Kevin Jonas Sr., commented on Turner’s post writing, “We are so happy to welcome you to our family.”

Us Weekly previously reported that the pair were set to wed in France this summer, so it’s likely that they will follow in his brother Nick’s footsteps and have more than one ceremony, as the Jumanji actor did when he wed Priyanka Chopra in India in December.

The Camp Rock actor jokingly said earlier this month that he’d learned something important from their wedding.

“I mean, we are getting married in France, so a lot of Coors Light is necessary,” Joe said during an interview on the Zach Sang Show. “Not hard, really, to get that, but we needed to make sure that was going to happen.”

“We learned a lesson from my wedding,” Nick added. “Our friends drink a lot of beer, specifically, and we ran out of beer at the wedding, at my wedding, which was a big issue.”

Holmes and her daughter spent a couple of days visiting the camp for Syrian refugees on the Greek island of Lesbos. The pair worked with volunteers from Artolution, a charity that promotes public art initiatives to promote healing and positive social change. Holmes is a global ambassador for the charity.

In a post on Artolution’s Instagram page, Holmes and Suri posed with other volunteers in front of a colorful mural.

“Thank you to our #globalambassadorforartolution, @katieholmes212, for your support AND working on the ground with us in Greece, teaching performance to refugees in the Moria Refugee Camp! Showing up and sharing this experience together. Kindness in action,” the pic was captioned.

Holmes also shared the shot, writing, “wonderful to spend time with such beautiful souls.”

The Logan Lucky star posted more pics on social media that showed her cradling a young child in her lap.

“I love these women who became our friends as we collaborated on many different projects this week,” she captioned a shot that showed her painting red hearts on a piece of paper. “I am so very grateful for this experience. The resilience of these women is so profound and truly inspiring to witness. and I pray for refugees everywhere.”

Holmes has spoken in the past about her daughter’s charitable spirit and big heart. “My little one is very, very generous and very sensitive,” she said on the Today show in 2015. “So she’s always [saying], ‘Mom, let’s give my old toys to people who need it.’”

She and Cruise split in 2012 after five years of marriage. Us Weekly broke the news in 2015 that Holmes had been secretly dating Jamie Foxx for two years. The pair were spotted kissing on a romantic vacation in Miami in late December. “She’s infatuated with him,” a source later told Us.

Patrick Whitesell Emerges After Reports That Wife Cheats With Jeff Bezos: Pics!

Putting on a brave face. Patrick Whitesell stepped out for the first time since the news of his wife Lauren Sánchez’s affair with Jeff Bezos broke.

The WME co-CEO appeared carefree while out for a drive in Beverly Hills on Thursday, January 10. Whitesell sported a huge smile and sunglasses behind the wheel of his black Mercedes-Benz.

The National Enquirer broke the news on Wednesday, January 9, that Bezos was cheating on his now-estranged wife, MacKenzie Bezos, with Sánchez. The magazine reported that the Amazon CEO and the former Extra host have been seeing each other for eight months and their spouses found out about the dalliance in the fall.

“Patrick was totally blindsided. He had no idea how serious the affair was or how long it was going on for,” a source told Us Weekly exclusively after the Enquirer’s findings came to light.

The insider noted that Whitesell and Sánchez “were having problems in their marriage for the last year.” However, they “were trying to work things out.”

Meanwhile, another source told Us that the talent agent “introduced Lauren to Jeff and suggested they work together on a documentary.”

Hours before news of the affair came out, Jeff announced his plans to divorce MacKenzie, whom he wed in 1993. “As our family and close friends know, after a long period of loving exploration and trial separation, we have decided to divorce and continue our shared lives as friends,” the businessman wrote on Twitter on Wednesday. “We feel incredibly lucky to have found each other and deeply grateful for every one of the years we have been married to each other. If we had known we would separate after 25 years, we would do it all again.”

The joint statement continued: “We’ve had such a great life together as a married couple, and we also see wonderful futures ahead, as parents, friends, partners in ventures and projects, and as individuals pursuing ventures and adventures. Though the labels might be different, we remain a family, and we remain cherished friends.”

LeToya Luckett Talks Beyoncè Reunion; Shows Baby Shower Pics

It’s been almost two decades since former Destiny’s Child member LeToya Luckett was fired from the group, and now the mom-to-be is speaking out about life after parting ways with one of the greatest musical acts of all time.

“Management made a decision,” she explained to T.I. & Tiny: Friends and Family Hustle castmate Toya Wright.

“There was nothing at the time that I could do about it. Did it hurt? Absolutely. Because we were friends. I went to school with these girls.”

Beyoncé and LaTavia [Roberson] had been in the group the longest. Then LaTavia went to school. Met Kelly [Rowland]. And then Beyoncé showed up at my school one day as the new beautiful girl with this new beautiful voice. It was just so cool to experience something like that at such a young age. But that decision was made … we were sisters.”

Destiny’s Child fans were thrilled when a photo emerged recently of a LeToya reunited with Beyoncè backstage on the “OTR II” tour. The singer even says that Bey gave her some parenting advice when they met up.

“That was such an awesome moment. There was so much joy in that room. She was … she went into straight mommy mode as far like “Oh my god. What’s she doing? Is she doing this, is she doing that? And I was showing them my sonogram pictures and everything. She was just so excited. We’re both very, very happy, and you could feel the love in the room. There wasn’t a lot of people in the room. It felt like it was just us, chatting it up.”

Of course, Letoya’s joy has increased since her marriage to Tommicus Walker and the announcement of her pregnancy. Their baby girl is due soon and Luckett recently had a baby shower, which she shared photos of on social media.
