OMG! Usher hit by sex tape allegations

Add a comment

A sex tape allegedly featuring R&B singer Usher and his now ex-wife, Tameka Foster, is being shopped around various media outlets in Hollywood.

Gossip website TMZ claims to have been approached by an unnamed source with two photos and a short video snippet of the alleged X-rated tape.

"The video and photos are clear - it's Usher and Tameka," says the report.

The website says sources close to the OMG singer believe the tape might have been among the items stolen from Usher's car in 2009.

In December 2009 Usher reported $1 million worth of belongings were stolen from his car, including fur, jewellery and...two laptop computers.

Who in their right mind keeps a stash of that value in the trunk of their car? And a saucy tape with the missus. The silly sausage.

Usher and Foster - who have two sons together, ages two and three - were married in August 2007, but filed for divorce in June 2009, citing irreconcilable differences.

A representative for the singer had not commented on the reports, but Usher's ex has piped up and offered her take on the scandal.

In a statement provided to TheYBF.com, Foster does her best to quash the rumours.

"Would I sanction a sextape being out? Absolutely not. I am a mother and entrepreneur. Sex tapes or pornography would not be my lane. I have no desire to be seen in that way."

She then took to Twitter, and was a tad more-loose lipped about the stink.

"NEWSFLASH!! BREAKING NEWS! GUESS WHAT??!!" Foster Tweeted today (via E! News).

"I have copulated w/my husband! O_O. Why is this news again?? #ConfusedTweet. End of discussion."

Except it wasn't.

In response to a comment from a follower, she wrote: "Of course theres always. new foolishness with a new day. Desperate times calls 4 desperate measures I suppose. Never fails Smh!"

So there you have it, neither confirmation nor denial.

Stay tuned for updates...

Oh, the scandal!

Love and respect

Their marriage might be dunzo, but Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson are keeping it civil and remain friends, says the rocker.

Newly-single Wentz says that despite his wife filing for divorce last month, their friendship remains.

Probed about the split
by Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS-FM radio show on Monday, Wentz was full of admiration for his ex.

"I think that one of the things, that hardest thing, is that when you're a public profile it's hard to maintain your private life," he said.

"Ashlee's been my best friend for five years. She's the mother of my child," he added.

"I have nothing but love and respect for her. Going through something like this isn't easy," he added, "but we're friends and the most important thing is to put our son [Bronx, 2] first."

Speaking of progeny...

Baby daddy drama

US reports claim Ryan Phillippe's ex-girlfriend Alexis Napp is pregnant with his child.

The gossip gospel, according to People, is that Knapp has a bun in the oven and is in her second trimester.

Phillippe - who has two kids with ex-wife Reese Witherspoon - dated Knapp on and off in 2010, before splitting last year. The actor has since moved on and is romancing Amanda Seyfried.

"She has been telling people he is the father," another source tells UsMagazine.

"Ryan is aware of the situation [and] totally prepared to take responsibility should the child be his," adds the source.

No word from Phillippe's rep, but his mother was more than happy to chime in with her take on the reports.

"I haven't heard anything about it but I'm just getting ready to watch him on Ellen now," his mother Susan told RadarOnline.

"I don't think Alexis has been around for a long time. I don't think it can be true. He's been dating someone else since October.

"If she is pregnant I'm sure it's not my son's. Good luck to her. I haven't been made aware of it if it involves him though."

Awkward.

Meanwhile, check out this video of Red Riding Hood star Seyfried flexing her chords to a cover of 60s classic Li'l Red Riding Hood by Sam the Sham & The Pharoahs.

First-time dad

Bryan Adams is going to be a father for the first time.

The 51-year-old singer and his personal assistant, Alicia Grimaldi, are expecting a bambino - reportedly due in May.

Adams wrote on his official website: "She [helped] me start my foundation years ago and it looks like she'll be running the family now!"

He also Tweeted earlier today: "Thanks to everyone for the kind wishes."
