Did Nicki Minaj Announce She’s Pregnant?
Nicki sparked rumors she’s pregnant with Meek Mill’s baby after she called him her “baby father” at a concert in Pennsylvania, Saturday night. “Make some noise for my baby father,” she told the crowd, who went berserk. Nicki & Meek have been dating since around December 2014, in April Minaj posted a photo of herself wearing a heart-shaped ring on her finger, sparking engagement rumors the couple neither confirmed nor denied for more than a month.

Bieber Got Served! By an Adorable Puppy
Poor Justin, he was just hanging out at the beach in Laguna, when he saw an adorable puppy. Dog lover that he is, he went over to pet the little cutie. The dog “owner” was a lawyer, and not just any lawyer, he’s representing Meek Mill’s landlord, and as Justin was petting the pooch, the lawyer served him with papers. You remember the epic Grammy party Meek threw in that glass house? They trashed the place and the landlord is on the war path. Justin was there, you’ll recall, and the landlord is suing him calling him a “trespasser.” Justin claimed that since he didn’t touch the papers it didn’t count, but Justin’s been watching too much TV, all the lawyer is required to do is confirm his identity and present the papers. The upside? Justin was an invited guest of Meek and the trespass charges won’t stick. Get more here.
