The hip-hop star experienced a terrifying moment on Feb. 28 when a car pulled up to his tour bus and began shooting. Now he tells HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY about the fateful night. Keep reading to see what he has to say.
“My bus was located in the vicinity of the incident that took place,” the rapper says. The Philadelphia Police Department elaborated on the shootout: "At 11.52pm a 27-year-old male was shot once in the abdomen, and he transported to hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries at 1.30am. A second male, 29, was shot in his shoulder and was taken to Jefferson hospital in a private vehicle. He is in stable condition. No arrests have been made. The situation is under investigation."
Asked if French was involved in the shooting, police responded, “We do not know.” There have been reports that someone in the rapper’s entourage took out their own gun and started firing back.
Continuing his statement though, French insists that he came to Philadelphia in peace. “I had a peaceful concert and was not involved,” he says.
The shooting is another violent tragedy for a music genre that has had plenty of them. We can only hope that scary moments like this raise awareness and allow situations to be controlled rather than exacerbated.
“My deepest thoughts and sympathies go out to the families of the victims, as well as all of those who were affected,” French Montana ended his statement.
Does this mean they’re dating? The two mini-moguls were caught getting very close in a dark, hazy photo. After all the rumors linking Jaden to a Jenner, is this the confirmation we’ve been waiting for?
We just weren’t sure which Jenner Jaden Smithwas after — maybe it was Kylie Jenner all along! The two looked cozy and in love in a brand new pic.
However, even though the picture is clearly of the two, it is still shrouded in mystery. We can really only guess what’s going on — so let’s connect the dots, shall we?
Kylie Jenner & Jaden Smith: Are They Dating?
We know that Jaden, 14, was in attendance for Justin Bieber’scircus-themed birthday bash on March 1 — or he at least tried to be. Looking to get into Justin’s “worst birthday” party, Jaden was reportedly denied at the door because of his age. New reports say that Justin decided to move his soiree to a nearby McDonalds so that he could hang with his Karate Kid buddy.
We also know that Kylie made the trip across the Atlantic and has been spending time in London as well, evidenced by her many Instagram posts of late.
Now, the picture clearly — even though the photo isn’t so clear — looks like it was taken while the couple was at a concert. So, was it one of the Biebs’ shows? Maybe a One Directionconcert? Nope — the teens were seeing Kanye West!
Kylie was in attendance on Mar. 1 to see her half-sister’s boyfriend do his thing — and Jaden was right behind her the whole night!
The two look pretty comfortable together — you know, like a boyfriend and girlfriend would look!
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Does this mean that they’re together? Let us know!
Rihanna is about to embark around the world on her ‘Diamonds’ tour, taking her away from Chris Brown. However, a source tells HollywoodLife.come exclusively that Breezy has special plans to make his last days with RiRi memorable!
A source close to Chris tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively, “He’s just trying to basically spend as much time with his girl as he can before she leaves. He’s just on top of his game with her now, hanging tough, being around her, buying her flowers and taking her to dinner because in a minute it’s about to be a wrap.”
In case you’re worrying that Chris may go back to Karrueche Tran once Rihanna is touring, never fear. Rihanna is not worried about Chris cheating because that will be on his conscience.
Our source adds, "She's not tripping on K.T. like that no more. It's cool. Her thinking is that if he fu**s up and slips, that's on his conscience."
Rihanna seems like a very confident woman. She’d have to be in order to bare so much skin in the pages of ELLE UK’s April 2013 issue. The Barbadian beauty wears kitten ears and a dark mask in the photos along with designs by fashion houses Maison Martin Margiela, Louis Vuitton and Givenchy. Chris is one lucky man, and Rihanna knows it!
Ambulances! Firemen! Fights! Find out (some of) what you can expect when ’90210′ takes its final bow May 13.
90210looks to be going out with a bang — literally. The cast was spotted filming the final episode of The CW drama March 1 in Los Angeles, and everyone was on high alert. Not only was Michael Steger(aka Navid) seen being carried off in a stretcher, covered in soot, but Jessica Lowndes(aka No-Drama Adrianna) was also seen looking a little on the charred side.
EW.com recently reported that the Goo Goo Dolls would be guest starring on the May 6 episode as “Naomi calls upon them to perform at a relief concert,” but from the looks of these photos, I’d say the band’s performance goes up in smoke. And since the cast was filming the series finale, which airs a week after the Dolls’ appearance, I also think it’s safe to say we’ll end the penultimate episode with a fiery cliffhanger.
Drama On The ’90210′ Series Finale
In non-fire-related news, AnnaLynne McCordwas also spotted sharing a tense moment with an angry-looking Robbie Jones, who joins the show March 11 as Naomi’s new love interest. (Sorry, Max!) Elsewhere on set, a teary-eyed Shenae Grimeswas seen storming away from Tristan Wilds. A little Wilson sibling drama, perhaps?
Either way, it had been a long day of shooting for everybody. Just after 6 a.m. on March 1, AnnaLynne tweeted, “Happy Tweeting. My call time for my last 3 days of 90210 is happening very soon. Gonna sleep for a few more minutes! Xxx A”
Can you believe it’s really coming to an end?

“Hello there :)" Jenelle tweeted for the first time since Feb. 22, but that was only the beginning. After being released from rehab for heroin addiction issues, Jenelle went straight to making up for lost time on Twitter. She apparently had a festering bone to pick with her ex-boyfriend Gary Head, who she’s now been harshly slamming for almost a day now.
Jenelle Evans & Gary Head: A Twitter War Gets Out Of Control
To be fair, the Twitter war began when Gary tweeted, “I can’t lie to myself. I’m in love with @jadedolph and it was a huge mistake to bring @PBandJenelley_1 here.” Jade Dolph, of course, is the girl Gary dumped Jenelle for, so obviously she was going to take exception at that statement.
“dude STFU u r such a piece of s**t telling me how faithful u were going to stay while I’m gone,” Jenelle tweeted back. “case closed, u r being kicked out and I’m cutting off yr phone now that I PAY FOR lmao get a job dude hahaha,” she continued.
Jenelle’s tweet-disses have been pretty much non-stop since she got back online yesterday afternoon, Mar. 1. And if you’re wondering, no, Jenelle hasn’t cleaned up her language one bit.
Jenelle Evans & Courtland Rogers Connect On Twitter
The Teen Mom also used Twitter to air her grievances with her short-lived husband Courtland Rogers. In a very odd Twitter exchange, the two admitted that they loved each other, but that they also made mistakes in their relationship. Apparently being on reality TV has made them completely averse to any sort of privacy!
Jenelle doesn’t show any signs of stopping in terms of putting her life on full display. What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Is Twitter battling so soon after leaving rehab a bad idea for her? Let us know!
Baby, it’s cold outside! We have a feeling that’s what Kate was singing to her unborn baby when she attended Mark Tomlinson and Laura Bechtolsheimer’s wedding on March 2.
The Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton and her handsome hubby Prince William braved the bitter cold to celebrate the nuptials of their good friends polo player Mark Tomlinson and Olympic dressage gold medalist Laura Bechtolsheimer in Switzerland on March 2. And we see a slight baby bump peeking through Kate’s woolen coat!
Kate, 31, and William, 30, looked happy and relaxed as they cheered on their friends at the snow white wedding in the upmarket resort of Arosa. Kate even threw some confetti at the newlyweds as they walked by!
Pregnant Kate wore a cream woolen coat over a floral dress, paired with a chocolate brown pillbox hat and fur scarf.
Kate Middleton Relaxes On A Babymoon
With the Royal baby on the way, Kate has been getting a lot of opportunities to relax, which is a very good thing! Last month, the Royal couple took a “babymoon” on one of the most exclusive paradise islands in the world, where they stayed in a luxury house on Mustique. Unfortunately, it was during this vacation that a pregnant Kate was photographed in her bikini. The photos were then published in Italian gossip magazine Chi.
Of all the never-before-seen clips making their way out in celebration of the DVD release of ‘Breaking Dawn Part 2,’ this has to be the best one! One of the more famous scenes in the ‘Twilight’ books didn’t make it on-screen, but you can see it for the first time now!
The headline says it all — if you’re into Taylor Lautnerchucking metal dog dishes at beautiful actresses like Nikki Reed, you’ve come to the right place.
‘Breaking Dawn’ Deleted Scene: Jacob vs. Rosalie
This hilarious deleted scene is straight out of the Breaking Dawn book. Nikki’s character, Rosalie — who isn’t a big fan of the werewolves — brings Jacob a hot dog. Sounds like a nice thing to do right? Oh, did I mention the hot dog was served in a doggie bowl? Yeah, not so nice.
“Enjoy, mongrel,” Rosalie quips, giving Jacob a death stare.
Then comes the best part — after taking a ravenous bite of the hot dog, Jacob winds up and hurls the dog bowl, nailing Rosalie right in the back of the head!
It’s an all around hysterical scene, and we’re so glad we get to see it now that the DVD’s out!
The Cast Of ‘Twilight’ Is Like A Family
Humorous throwaway scenes like this really give insight into how much all of these actors enjoyed working together. It must be a great working environment if you don’t mind getting smacked in the back of the head by a dog dish, right?
“Scenes where we’re all together, it’s just so much fun,” Nikki says. She goes on to say how all of the actors truly became family while filming the Twilight saga — and that really shows.
Do you like this clip as much as we do, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!

Balancing work and motherhood is no easy task. In a new interview, Ivanka opens up about how she balances her busy life with raising her 19-month-old daughter.
As a mentor on the Celebrity Apprentice, jewelry designer, businesswomen, and mother to Arabella Rose, Ivanka Trump, 31, certainly has a lot on her plate! Although it can get a little hectic at times, Ivanka wouldn’t have it any other way.
“Every day is a new challenge, but that’s part of the fun of it,” Ivanka tells Us Weekly.
“For me, while balance is something that I strive for, [it's something] you can’t always plan for,” Ivanka explains. “My measure is just every day asking myself, ‘Do I have the right priorities?’ and ‘Am I making the right decision?’”
We totally agree! Ivanka, who works for father Donald Trump‘s Corporation, admits she perfects the balance by always making her daughter her top priority, but knows she doesn’t have to always feel guilty when she does need to get some work done.
“I want to make sure I’m with my daughter when she needs me to be with her, but I also know that it’s okay to go to the office when I’m working on a big deal then I’ll make [family time] up on the weekend,” she explains. “I try to think of parenthood as a marathon, not a sprint. I know that I have to do well at this by taking it one day at a time and not beating myself up too much over small things.
So, will Ivanka and husband Jared Kushner be adding to their family anytime soon?
“I just haven’t decided when [we'll have another baby] yet, but at some point. That’s the plan,” Ivanka teases.
If there’s trouble in paradise, Miley’s ring finger hasn’t gotten the memo! The star stepped out on Mar. 1 still flaunting her engagement rock. Is this a sign that the Liam Hemsworth cheating rumors are false?
Either Miley Cyrus is weirdly obsessed with her huge Neil Lane engagement ring, or she actually isn’t having issues with fiance Liam Hemsworth.
Miley Cyrus Rocks Her Ring
Photographers snapped away on Mar. 1 as Miley headed to the studio to continue work on her fourth studio album, and we couldn’t help but notice her choice of jewelry. The 20-year-old’s enormous 3.5-carat ring stood out and acted as a prop to dispel all the rumors.
After all, why would she continue slipping on that massive beauty if the claims were true?
Liam Hemsworth’s Cheating Rumors
Rumblings began to flare up over Oscars weekend when paparazzi caught Liam leaving the Chateau Marmont with the older actress, January Jones. But not only did they leave the hotel together — they both got into the same car! ”It looked like [Liam and January] had some hot chemistry,” a witness inside the pre-Oscars party told Star magazine.
To make matters worse, Miley then attended Elton John’s Oscars party not with Liam, but with her mother Tish. That was all it took for people to assume that something was up between Miley and Liam.
In the past few days though, the validity of the cheating rumors have died down. “They are totally together,” an insider told E! News. The same source also explained that Miley’s Oscars date was Tish because she had never been to Elton’s party and badly wanted to go.
So what we do know is that Miley’s a good daughter and that so long as she continues rocking that Neil Lane ring, we can be assured that the engagement is on. Though we’re still not sure how January Jones factors into all of this!
Kim K has used her pregnancy to take more fashion risks — but her maternity outfits aren’t always flattering to her growing frame! Check out our gallery of Kim’s wildest maternity looks.
While most pregnant women hide their shape behind oversized clothing in bland colors, Kim Kardashian has used her pregnancy as a chance to take risks with her clothing — but her maternity wardrobe isn’t always the most flattering.
Kim Wears Feathered Dress To Topshop Opening
When Kim and her boyfriend Kanye West attended the Topshop LA opening on Feb. 13, she donned a Prabal Gurung black dress paired with leather leggings.
But the empire waist accentuated her growing frame, especially with the feathers starting right under the bust. The top sheer embroidered bodice was also unflattering for her bust, especially since Kim's cup size keeps growing with her pregnancy.
She was photographed leaving her home in the unflattering pants with a tight-fitting black turtleneck. The high-waisted pants also pinched at her waist in an unattractive way, and the overall tight outfit didn’t do her pregnant figure justice.
Kim’s Geometric Printed Maxi Dress
Kim also made a bold move when she chose a tight-fitted geometric tribal print maxi dress paired with the black leather jacket, but the dress hugged Kim’s curves in all the wrong places. Not her most attractive look!

Not only does Rihanna strip down to a sexy cat-like outfit in the pages of ‘ELLE’ UK’s April 2013 issue, but she also reveals that she plans on having a baby with Chris Brown! Keeping reading to see the pics and get all the details.
Rihanna believes her relationship with Chris Brown could go all the way this time, even resulting in children for the two music stars. And let’s be honest — Rihanna’s sexy new photo shoot for ELLE UK would put anyone in the baby making spirit!
Rihanna, 25, certainly knows how to entice Chris, 23. Showing off her hot body and fierce attitude, the “Stay” singer wears kitten ears and a dark mask in the ELLE UK shoot, photographed by Mariano Vivacano. Rihanna also wears designs by fashion houses Maison Martin Margiela, Louis Vuitton and Givenchy in the April 2013 issue.
While the photos are certainly worth a second look (or fifty), it’s Rihanna’s baby plan admission that surprised us!
Rihanna Wants To Have A Kid With Chris Brown
“I will probably have a kid. And I'm praying I can go on vacation for a good month. And I'll have set some things up so I don't have to tour for the rest of my life, even though I love touring. I want health and happiness in five years. I want to be healthy and happy,” Rihanna tells the magazine.
Clearly, Rihanna wants to “have a kid” with Chris. She adds, “Now that [Chris and I] are adults, we can do this right. We got a fresh start and I'm thankful for that. Right now that's just what we want, a great friendship that's unbreakable.”
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Should Rihanna and Chris have a baby together?

Anne Hathaway’s explanation for why she went to the Oscars in Prada instead of Valentino on Feb. 27 was more than a little cryptic, but now we have the whole truth! Keep reading for more details on Anne’s dress meltdown!
Have you ever been totally excited to wear a dress to your prom, only to be devastated when you show up and another girl is wearing the same dress? Well, Anne Hathawayknows how you feel.
The Les Miserables actress was sent over the edge the day before the Oscars when she learned that her co-star Amanda Seyfried’sAlexander McQueen dress looked very similar to the Valentino gown she planned to wear.
Anne Hathaway Throws A Fit
“Anne was like WTF!” a source tells Us Weekly. Reportedly, the actress couldn’t control her anger and began to throw a fit right in the middle of the Les Mis dress rehearsal! “Amanda didn’t want to deal with it and left,” the source adds.
Anne’s drama continued into Oscar Sunday, Feb. 24, when she decided not to wear the Valentino dress and find a new one altogether! ”Anne made the fashion, make up, hair, and jewelry teams wait at her home for hours as she decided what to do about the dress debacle,” a second source explains.
Anne Hathaway’s Prada Dress Debacle
She eventually landed on a Prada-made gown, and the rest is history. The pale pink satin gown fit awkwardly, and made it look like Anne’s nipples were poking out the whole night. She was apparently so horrified by the whole mess that she surprisingly released a statement in apology.
The statement was very general and didn’t name names: “It came to my attention late Saturday night that there would be a dress worn to the Oscars that is remarkably similar to the Valentino I had intended to wear, and so I decided it was best for all involved to change my plans.” Now we know who she was referring to!
What we don’t get is, why didn’t she just wear her dress as planned? Having a similar dress as someone at an event where there are hundreds of dresses surely can’t be the tragedy that Anne made it out to be. Doesn’t switching up her gown last-minute — and then releasing a statement afterwards — just make Anne look like a petty diva?
How sweet! In a new interview, the father-to-be reveals he’s already spending time talking to his unborn baby!
After four years of marriage, Josh Duhamel, 40, and Fergie, 37, excitedly announced that they are expecting their first child together. Although the baby isn’t due for a while, Josh isn’t wasting any time bonding with his child!
"I've had full conversations with the baby already," Josh reveals in an interview with PEOPLE. "I'm trying my best to communicate from beyond the womb. Whether it can hear me, I don't know, but I'm talking to it a lot."
We didn’t think it was possible for Josh to be any more adorable, but he’s proved us wrong yet again! The daddy-to-be also reveals that he finds his wife’s pregnancy glow irresistible.
"She looks so beautiful," the Safe Haven star gushes. "I look at her now as not only as my beautiful wife, but also as the woman carrying our child. That takes our relationship to a whole new level."
Josh Duhamel Isn’t Afraid Of Fatherhood
Although Josh will be first time father, he’s not intimidated by the task.
"I actually look forward to that stuff that people warn you about," he explains. "I don't mind waking up and dealing with the middle of the night stuff. I wake up early anyway. So I'm definitely ready for it. More so than I've ever been."
Josh admits that his age and years of experience are a major contributing factor to his confidence.
"I have a lot more life experience than I had at 24. I feel like I'm a little more patient and more wise than I was before," he says. "It's easier said than done, but I'm just looking to raise a good person."
HollyMoms, do YOU think Josh will make a great dad? Vote below!
In an interview with The Oakland Press, Erik said that he believes the casting for Twilight was perfect. “The filmmakers really got it right with Kristen and Rob,” he says, adding, “There’s been such an overlap of how iconic the characters are, but also how iconic Kristen and Rob are.”
Who knew Erik was such a hopeless romantic! “When [they got] together, it became bigger than anyone could have imagined,” he also says. Erik should know — he’s spent a lot of time with the couple: “It was sweet to watch them together on set,” the actor says.
Rob & K-Stew: What You Didn’t Know
In the same interview, Erik describes how there’s so much more than meets the eye to Kristen and Rob, that their pretty faces and whirlwind romance are just what you see on the surface.
“I was surprised at how down to earth they were,” Erik states. “Kristen’s just so intelligent.”
“I wouldn’t be surprised to see, as she gets older, her transitioning into her own films because she has such a strong voice on set.”
We love to hear this kind of stuff — first of all, who knew quiet little Kristen Stewart could be a leader on a movie set? And it’s great to know that R-Patz and K-Stew don’t have huge egos and that they’re loved by everyone!
