GossipMomma's RumorRoom

"THOSE exclusive photos in yesterday's Post of Sean "Diddy" Combs dropping Sienna Miller off at her hotel early Sunday weren't the only pictures that were snapped of the couple. Page Six has learned that a Saturday night clubgoer at Crobar tried to take a photo of Combs and Miller dancing together. A security guard who entered with Diddy's entourage responded by taking the camera from her hand and confiscating the memory card. "After the girl took the photo, Diddy didn't say or do anything," a witness said. "By the time he was 20 feet away, one of the security guys handed the camera to the bouncer, the bouncer handed it to the girl, and the memory card was gone." (SOURCE NY POST)

Looks like K-Fed is making good on his threat to hit up Britney Spears for big bucks. Kevin Federline turned down a $25 million divorce settlement from the “Oops, I Did It Again” singer, according to Star. At one point, Federline was reportedly looking for $50 million from his estranged wife and the mother of two of his children — but the source insists it’s not greed — but love of their kids. “Kevin says that Britney offered him $10 million to walk away from their marriage and to relinquish custody of their kids, but he just laughed. Then she came back with $20 million which he turned down too,” a source told the tab “Now he says she’s offering a whopping $25 million, and that’s her final offer. He told her to take a hike! He loves his two little boys, and there’s no way he’s going to disappear from their lives.” (SOURCE MSNBC)

TMZ has learned that dancers working on Beyonce's latest videos are being low-balled on their salaries in order to make the videos on the cheap.
Sources tell TMZ that the music diva is shooting several music videos in L.A. this week, which we're told she is financing, not her label. Sources also say Beyonce's choreographer, Frank Gatson, has refused to work with any of the dancers' agents on this job.We're told that by eliminating the middleman and dealing directly with the dancers, Beyonce can pay them below standard wages. Industry contacts say this practice is highly irregular for an artist of Beyonce's stature, and it undermines the dance industry as a whole. TMZ has learned that in order to maintain good working relationships, the production company for the project , RSA Films, has recently agreed to pay agency fees for some of the dancers.(SOURCE TMZ)

YES, she snorted. In an interview to air tomorrow, Miss USA Tara Connor admits to "Today" show host Matt Lauer that, "I have done cocaine, yeah."
