THE PEOPLE PARENTS SHOULD NOT "FRIEND" ON FACEBOOK
1. Your kid's teacher--Sharing on Facebook could become uncomfortable, especially if an issue happens at school. The teacher may feel it's difficult to be objective about your child or that you're asking for special treatment.
2. The weekend babysitter--It's fine to poke around online before you hire but decline her friend request. You're bound to see a post or photo that makes you cringe and it could ruin your relationship.
3. The moms in your kid's class--This one's a yes, but be selective. Pick only the moms you're already friendly with. You're not going to bond with the whole parent body online and shouldn't risk annoying potential future playdates with your posts.
4. Your family pediatrician--Facebook isn't the place for medical communication, and unless you go out for drinks regularly with your kid's doctor, they simply shouldn't be a part of your social life.
5. An old boyfriend--If either of you is married, then no. The posts or pictures could hurt your partner's feelings. Many people have a hidden agenda for finding and friending an ex, so be honest about why you're reaching out.

Miguel was ORDERED not to attempt a dangerous jump over the crowd during his performance at the Billboard Music Awards because producers believed it was too dangerous ... but the singer ignored them ... sources connected to the production tell TMZ. We're told ... Miguel approached producers before rehearsals and asked if he could try to jump over the crowd during his performance ... but producers shot down the idea, telling Miguel it was just too dangerous. But when showtime came around, Miguel blew off the order ... and producers' fears were realized when he botched the jump and leg dropped a female fan ... slamming her head against the stage. Now, the victim's lawyer says she may have suffered a brain injury as a result Vip Bhola, Shah’s lawyer, says, “Some of the difficulties she’s experiencing are cognitive in nature and lead to suspicion of a neurological head injury.”Bhola says his client is waiting for test results from a neurologist. When the results are in, sometime next week, Khyati will decide whether or not to sue.
MORE BIG MONEY FOR JAY Z
Jay-Z is on the brink of singing a deal with Samsung Mobile that would net him $20 million dollars. Rapper Jay-Z, whom FORBES Magazine has listed as one of the wealthiest hip hop artists in the world, is reportedly set to add $20 million dollar to his bank account once a deal with Samsung Mobile is inked. So what would entice Jay-Z to lend his image to Samsung? An insider told the NY Post, "The eight-figure deal will be inked in the next few weeks, and is the biggest of its kind. You can speculate that he’ll want to develop some kind of new music-streaming service to promote his acts and music on mobile devices."

LENNY KRAVITZ GETS PERSONAL
As reported previously by EURweb, Lenny Kravitz opened up about his former marriage to ex-wife, and baby’s mama, Lisa Bonet during a “Master Class” interview on the OWN Network. In many cases, divorce breeds animosity between former lovers. But the rock legend says that he and Bonet started as best friends, and continue to be close today. “Zoe’s mom and I now are best friends,” he said. “That’s how the relationship started, but it makes you feel really good when you can do that.” Lenny and Lisa married in 1987, but divorced in 1993. There were rumors of infidelity, and Lenny spoke to OWN about how his father’s departure had an impact on him.“My father was getting ready to leave and move out, and said, ‘You’ll do it, too.’ It messed me up,“ he said. Although their union fizzled, Lenny said he likes where his relationship with Lisa is now, and realizes what the point of it all was. You can see more of Lenny's comments in the video below.
HUGE legal victory for Shaq -- the lawsuit filed by an alleged ex-mistress who claimed the NBA star harassed her following their breakup has been dismissed ... because the judge says she's a dirty LIAR. As we reported, Vanessa Lopez filed her lawsuit against Shaq back in 2010 claiming she was his mistress for 5 years ... and once she broke up with him, he launched a campaign to harass her and make her fear for her safety. But the Florida judge just lowered the legal boom on Lopez in his ruling -- claiming the court CAUGHT HER in several lies ... proving it's impossible to believe anything that comes out of her mouth. Among Lopez's lies -- the judge says Vanessa claimed she "did not know of" any previous restraining orders that had been issued against her ... when there were official records showing she was hit with one stemming from a case involving an ex-boyfriend. And there's this ... Vanessa's lawyers completely deserted her almost immediately following her deposition earlier this year ... a huge red flag. Lopez's lawsuit was dismissed on the basis of fraud on the court -- with prejudice, meaning she can't refile.

SHEMAR M. ACCUSED OF ASSAULT
Shemar Moore is all about the drama on his CBS series “Criminal Minds.” But the real life drama comes courtesy of some woman who claims the actor assaulted her at his Encino home Saturday. Eurweb.com says, the woman called the cops and when they arrived, the actor and the woman each accused the other of pushing and shoving. And as you can imagine, the words “drinking was involved” was part of the police report. A source told TMZ: “the woman was in Shemar’s backyard with a number of people when someone, not Shemar, pushed her in the pool. We’re told she got very upset and tried to come inside the house, soaking wet. She was asked to wait until someone could get her some towels.” Later
Mariah Carey just made it official -- she will NOT be back at the "American Idol" judges' table for a second season ... just as everyone expected. Mariah's PR people announced her exit ... before further confirming rumors that 'AI' producers want to make a clean sweep for next season. TMZ previously reported ... 'Idol' is extremely interested in bringing back Jennifer Lopez to judge next season -- and keeping Mariah and J.Lo would clearly be a bad fit ... and a pricey one at that. No word yet on Keith Urban and Nicki Minaj -- but Randy Jackson already announced he won't be back.

MARY J’S HUSBAND FACING FAMILY DRAMA
Mary J. Blige's husband Kendu Isaacs may want to go check on his oldest daughter Briana. Because baby girl is about to have her own baby boy...and she's having a homeless and lonely melt down.YBF.com is reporting that Kendu Isaacs and his oldest daughter, Briana Latrise, have been at odds for years. Back in '09, Briana blasted him for being a deadbeat dad and tweeted that she needed someone to find her father so she could wish him a Happy Donor's Day. Fast forward to this week when Briana, who calls herself an artist, is letting the world know that she's struggling in life. Like really struggling. But she's also still in school. She tweeted that she's pregnant with a baby boy (and posted the ultrasound pic), she's homeless because she can't find anywhere to go while she moves, and her parents are no help. Of coarse this is only her side of the story and I would love to know where her child's father is. But apparently putting the onus on HIM as well is too much like right. Check out her tweets and more on this drama at ybf.com
CHRIS B. GOES OFF ON MANAGEMENT
Chris Brown is not happy with those charged with making him look good or at the very least, ensuring his business is handled properly. Going off on a little rant via Twitter, Chris Brown slammed his management Wednesday, claiming they are "incompetent at times." "My management is so incompetent at times that they don't communicate. So... Blame these wack ni***s for the release being moved. I'll keep y'all posted," Chris wrote. "They got me looking crazy." Apparently his anticipated single, "They Don't Know," was due to premiere earlier this week, but has been pushed back. "Video/single will be released soon. Not gonna tell y'all an exact date becuz I keep getting false info," he told fans before deleting the tweets. As previously reported, "They Don't Know" features original vocals from the late Aaliyah. The track is due to appear on his anticipated album, "X," which is due for release later this year.
