The Umbrella singer was snapped with a chap called Justin Laboy on Sunday in a series of Twitter images with the pair affectionately pecking each other on the cheek.   The photos found their way online after Rihanna’s weekend performance in Newark, New Jersey, as part of her Diamonds World Tour.

‘Real Recognize Real @Rihanna in my city. #NYC,’ came another message quickly after, this time with a picture of the pop babe returning the favor.   While a third tweet completed the trilogy of intimate snaps along with the caption ‘Me and @rihanna and you ain’t even know it!’

In each of the pictures, Rihanna – dressed in a backwards baseball cap, transparent basketball vest, and chunky necklace – looks fully at ease and relaxed.   The We Found Love singer has been on the road since the 8th March as part of her tour which will see her traversing the globe until mid October.   With a busy schedule, the singer and fashion designer has been kept apart from her on-off boyfriend, Chris Brown, with speculation rife that the couple are currently in one of their ‘off’ phases.

Brown added fuel to this fire by releasing a series of explicit yet cryptic tweets after the sexy images of Rihanna with Justin emerged.

‘S**t is overrated now a days,’ he said in a tweet late in the early hours of Monday.

‘Just remember to keep ya muthaf****n head up,’ he added, suggesting he may be feeling a little bit down.

He has also since unfollowed Rihanna on Twitter, and is now re-following his other ex-girlfriend, Karrueche Tran.   Meanwhile Rihanna seemed to be losing no sleep over the latest twist (literally) as she continued to party with other friends into the night and then hit Washington on Monday for her latest tour date.   She was also, hilariously, spotted in new York on Monday afternoon as she left her hotel – taking shelter from the rain under an umbrella.

Kanye west sends private jet for Kim!

Never fear, Kanye West is still so smitten with Kim Kardashian that he’s sent his very own private jet to Greece to whisk her away from her family and into his tender, loving arms. Well, something like that anyway.

article-0-1973861C000005DC-375_634x791

Just to recap, because L.A. is so lacking in state of the art recording studios (raised eyebrows) Kanye is having – and we mean HAVING – to record his album in Paris 5,600 miles away from where his pregnant girlfriend is contractually obliged to be.

But it’s okay, because he’s doing nice things like sending his plane to collect her from nearby Greece.

‘Kanye sent a private jet to Greece to pick Kim up,’ a source told Radar Online.   ‘The plane flew to Paris and now they’re spending more alone time there together.’

Pregnant Kim wrapped up filming Keeping Up With the Kardashians with her sisters Khloe and Kourtney , her nephew Mason and niece Penelope Disick, Scott Disick and her mother Kris Jenner, at the holiday resort.

Kim and Kanye spent a few days together in New York City last week.   A source told the website that while Kim ‘honours all of her work commitments she is in constant contact with Kanye at all times when they aren’t together.’   And remember Kanye just can’t be in a backwater like L.A. when it comes to making music, remember that.

Ben Foden Strips!

While most men wouldn’t dream of trying to woo one of The Saturdays, Ben Foden did it with relative ease. The Northampton Saints rugby player literally picked out pop star Una Healy after he watched her on television and decided that he liked her.

article-2316972-198B12DD000005DC-184_634x826

While standing around in his underwear with his six-pack and pectorals on show, Ben explained exactly how he met his wife.

Speaking to Attitudemagazine he said: ‘I’d been having lunch in a pub with my agent when he asked about my love life and I was ‘oh, non existent’.

‘He asked if there was anyone I was thinking about, then The Saturdays popped up on the music channel in the corner and I said ‘oh the one in the blue tights’.

‘And the next thing I know I’ve got a text saying ‘she’s expecting your call’.

article-2316972-198B12E8000005DC-223_634x597

Surprisingly, Ben and Una have music in common, although the 31-year-old Irish beauty is much more successful than her husband.

Foden had a crack at making a music career for himself and once auditioned for television show Pop Idol.

He told the magazine: ‘I got through to the next round, which fell on the same day as my first training session with Sale Sharks.

‘I think they’d say I wasn’t a very good singer. I don’t think I will be following in Una’s footsteps.’

His falsetto may not have brought him the fame and riches that his rugby has, but the father-of-one still enjoys watching his other half perform.

Ben admitted to the magazine that he is particularly fond of going to see The Saturdays belt out their hits at G-A-Y.

article-2316972-130272CD000005DC-322_634x967

He told the magazine: ‘I’ve been twice. I had a great time.’   The family have spent much of the last 12 months on different sides of the Atlantic as Una and her Saturdays bandmates Mollie King, Frankie Sandford, Rochelle Humes and Vanessa White attempted to crack America and film their E! reality show Chasing The Saturdays.   But even though they are reunited for the time being, Una recently admitted she Ben and Aoife are enjoying being a trio too much to think about expanding their brood.    ‘Aoife Belle won’t be having any brothers or sisters anytime soon but I’d definitely love more in the future.’

Neverland has never looked better!

Four years ago, Neverland lay in ruins after Michael Jackson’s death. The fairground rides were rusting away, all the staff had been dismissed and the grounds were left abandoned and destroyed.

article-2316992-198C64AD000005DC-831_634x456

But, thanks to the efforts of Michael’s children, the huge 3,000-acre site is now well on the road to recovery.

According to sources close to the estate in Los Olivos, California, the rest of the family have taken very little interest in Neverland and not one person has visited it since the king of pop died in 2009 – apart from the kids Prince, 16, Paris, 15, and Blanket, 12.

article-2316992-19847729000005DC-422_634x429

Paris spoke out earlier this month about her heartbreaking visit to Neverland two years ago to find it in ruins.

She is determined to rebuild it to its former glory so that underprivileged children can enjoy it.

The pictures prove that the children have won the battle of wills with the Jackson family, who all appear to have shown a complete disregard for Neverland and the wishes of Michael.

When we visited Neverland last week, we were told by household staff and security that Jacko’s siblings or parents have never bothered to visit the ranch since his death.

article-2316992-198C6481000005DC-927_634x355

But they only had words of praise for the children, with one security guard saying: ‘Neverland has been completely revitalised. There’s a full set of staff and people in charge who care about the place.’

The photographs tell the real story of the ranch’s rejuvenation. The bright yellow flowers spelling Neverland have been restored next to the main house, but this time flowers-shaped in a butterfly have been added to one bed.

There’s also a new section in the gardens of an image of a boy in a moon, similar to Peter Pan – Michael Jackson and his children’s favourite fairytale character.

According to the wishes of the children, the bustling fairground has been replaced with a tranquil ‘Zen Garden’.

The Ferris wheel swings and other fairground rides have been removed, and expert h orticulturists have replaced them with a calm seating area surrounded by lush topiary carved into animal shapes, weeping willow, oak and fir trees, perennial shrubbery and manicured gardens.

Once again, red tail kites, brown eagles and turkey buzzards are nesting in the grounds and grassland, which are irrigated and mowed daily.

The fountains and pool has been filled with water again and the tennis and basketball courts are restored to their previous states.

Our source says: ‘Neverland has never looked better. More staff have been employed – they’ve got full-time gardeners, household staff, proper security and people are now looking after the house like it should have always been when Michael was alive.

article-2316992-198C64A9000005DC-949_634x370

‘We’re lucky that the children are level-headed and want it to be a fitting tribute to their dad and also do some good in the world.’   Prince, Paris and Blanket still have a substantial investment in Neverland, which is co-owned by the Sycamore Valley Ranch Company, who paid off nearly $25 million of Michael’s mortgage debt in 2008.

Colony Capital, who own Sycamore Valley Ranch company, refused to comment when asked the revamp of Neverland.

Will Smith Arrives in Tokyo!

Will Smith and his teenage son Jaden brought some Southern California cool to Japan on Monday as they continue to promote their new sci-fi film.   Will, 44, set the tone in a casual and comfortable ensemble of dark blue jeans, grey T-shirt and royal blue double-breasted jacket.   He capped the stylish yet cozy look with grey high-tops.

Jaden, 14, looked like he was ready to hit a skatepark.   The Find You Somewhere rapper wore a black-and-white T-shirt over a black hoodie that he had pulled up over a dark baseball cap.

Jaden, who was born in Malibu and knows how to surf, even brought along a skateboard.   Father and son have been traveling the world to promote director M. Night Shyamalan’s latest movie, After Earth.   The movie is a survival story about a son who must rescue his father after they crash land on a futuristic Earth.

Jaden portrays Kitai Raige and Will portrays his on-screen father, Cypher Raige. They also had father-son roles in the 2006 feel-good homeless drama, The Pursuit of Happyness.   After Earth sees the pair strengthen their father-son bond as Kitai fights wild animals and an alien creature to get the help his father needs.   The movie is due out May 31 in the U.S. and June 21 in Japan.

Make-up free Adele!

She famously puts lots of effort into her lush red locks for appearances at award shows – but when she’s offstage Adele doesn’t appear to be so well acquainted with a comb and brush.   The scruffy-haired singer was pictured out in West London on Saturday looking as if she had just rolled out of bed.

article-2316324-1985CC61000005DC-642_634x991

Perhaps she was making an emergency trip to the shops to collect some much needed products to tame her wild locks.

Although the multi award-winning star had been spending most of her time in her Sussex mansion over the past year, she was spotted back in Notting Hill – where her mother Penny Adkins now lives in the singer’s former home – on Saturday.   Dressed in a black poncho and leggings, the mother-of-one popped into a branch of Whistles clearly on a mercy dash to add to her wardrobe.   Despite being free of make-up and without her trademark beehive, the Oscar-winnning singer failed blended into the homogenous mass of shoppers.

Her shopping excursion comes amidst reports Adele is back in the studio recording a follow-up to her 2011 album 21.   With her first album being named 19 and her current age as 24, perhaps we can assume her third album will be named 24.   Last week, the Mirror claimed Adele was on ‘lockdown’ in the studio and was also planning to record some of the album in Los Angeles.   A source told the paper: ‘Adele is currently in a recording studio in London and it’s in lockdown mode for the next few weeks. Four tracks are finished in terms of writing and she’s now laying down preliminary vocals with backing music and singers. The rest of the record will be done in LA.

article-2316324-1985CCA5000005DC-639_634x713

‘The feel is very much Adele going back to her roots, with some modern jazz and a couple of classic old songs.’   Adele’s last album 21 sold over 25million copies and won her a string of awards.   However, over the past year she’s been taking a break to focus on her personal life, including meeting boyfriend Simon Konecki last year and the birth of their son Angelo last October.   In an interview last year, she said she was in no rush: ‘They’ll come when they’re ready, and when I’ve got something to sing about.   ”I’m just going to lay some concrete, set up home and just ‘be’ for a bit. There will be no new music until it’s good enough and until I’m ready.’   Of course, she was persuaded to come out of her break to record the theme song to the Bond movie Skyfall, which won her an Oscar, Grammy and Golden Globe.

Rihanna flashes her figure!

L’il Kim paid a visit to see Rihanna backstage on Sunday night and the Diamonds singer decided to dress in a revealing laser cut vest for the occasion.

The 25-year-old Barbadian singer showed off her shape in the white Love Leather vest and even posed for a snap pulling the top, leaving more flesh on show.

Rihanna teamed the top with a pair of light coloured grey trousers and a pair of black heels.

She accessorised with a backwards cap, geek chic glasses and a chunky gold chain around her neck.

As well as showing off her own style Rihanna also posed for pictures with L’il Kim, who she entertained in her dressing room ahead of her show.

Kim was delighted to spend some time with Rihanna, even calling her ‘wifey’ as she posted a snap to her Twitter page.   While Rihanna wore a casual, but revealing, outfit, L’il Kim was uncharacteristically covered up.

The Lady Marmalade rapper wore a blue jacket with a pair of tight white trousers.

It seems that Rihanna enjoyed her show in New Jersey and she tweeted: ‘#NEWJERSEY that’s what the phuck iz up!!!! #DiamondsWorldTour.’   Amidst her hectic tour schedule the songstress is also planning a big surprise for on-off boyfriend Chris Brown’s upcoming birthday.   The Diamonds singer wants to prove her love for the Yeah 3x hitmaker and plans to go all out to help him celebrate turning 24 on May 5.

Speaking about her plans, a source said: ‘It’s a surprise. All I can say is she’s got a few things up her sleeve. She wants Chris to know how much she loves him and wants him and honestly, she just wants to be with him and let him know she’s got his back.’

However, Rihanna’s plans may not come to fruition as she has a gig scheduled in Brooklyn on Chris’ birthday and doesn’t want to force him to fly into New York to be with her.

The source added to HollywoodLife.com: ‘Chris treated her so bomb and surprised her with his presence when she turned 25, she wants to be with him badly when he turns 24.’
