Tyler Perry held an auction yesterday (September 13th) to sell off the contents of his new home. Perry purchased the new home in Johns Creek, located north of Atlanta, that was previously owned by a divorcing couple.
Dean Gardens, the iconic Johns Creek Estate which has been on the market for years, was finally sold to the multi-talented film and TV mogul a few months ago.
According to reports, Perry paid $7.6 million, which is quite the deal considering it was originally listed at $13.9 million. Apparently, he will be tearing down the entire 32,000- square foot mansion sitting on 58 acres of land and building his dream home from scratch. Features of the Dean Gardens Estate include two carriage houses, a wedding chapel, an Asian Tea Garden and an 18 -hole golf course. The mega-estate was originally built in 1992 by technology entrepreneur Larry Dean and his wife Lynda but they were separated before construction was complete.
Check out a few photos from yesterday’s action: Continue Reading…

The Zone IV label head has been spotted at various locations throughout L.A. where he’s currently working with Jody the Supertrainer to get his body back in order.

Jody once had Polow’s body looking like THIS so I’m sure he’ll be back in tip top shape in no time. Hopefully when Jody gets back he can pick up where my old trainer left off. [Sidebar: Ole boy left me in a lurch after trying to strong arm me to post stories on him everyday…. but that’s a post for another day.]
Congrats to Polow on his success. Judging from the video, he’s well on his way to that Timbaland steroid thickness…

Word on the curb is that T.I. and Tiny’s recent arrest for drug possession may cost him a helluva deal. According to a recent report by TMZ, the people behind AXE body spray are considering kicking the rapper to the curb.
A rep for AXE tells TMZ they’re “troubled by [T.I.’s] arrest” and have been forced into “reviewing our promotional activities” with the rapper. Translation — it doesn’t look good for T.I.
T.I. — real name Clifford Harris — locked down a deal with AXE earlier this year after promising the company that he was “working to become a more positive role model.”
So far, T.I.’s image is still featured on the company’s website (pictured above) … but that could change at any moment.

Nivea covers Sade’s “Stronger than Pride” on her upcoming mixtape and she shot a video for the song a few months ago along the coast of the Chattahoochee.

Most think she’s singing to her baby daddy/ex-fiance Lil Wayne but after Nivea was spotted with her new boo at the recent launch party for celebrity photographer FreddyO’s office, there’s been an ongoing debate about whether she’s currently knocked up by Boyfriend number #3.
Nivea’s voice is amazing but how can she ever be successful if she’s stuck in a babymaking rut. First The Dream, then Lil Wayne and now this random dude? I hope this recent pregnancy is just a vicious rumor…
