October 2, 2007 -- LOU Pearlman - the hog-fat, boy-band honcho who created *NSYNC and the Backstreet Boys and launched the careers of Justin Timberlake and Nick Carter - was a pervy pedophile who preyed on the young men he mentored, Vanity Fair reports.

"I would absolutely say the guy was a sexual predator. All the talent knew what Lou's game was," Steve Mooney, an aspiring singer who was Pearlman's assistant, told VF's Bryan Burrough. "Some guys joked about it. I remember [one singer] asking me, 'Have you let Lou [fellate] you yet?' "

Mooney said he once asked Pearlman, who was known as "Big Poppa," what it would take for him to get into a band. "I'll never forget this as long as I live. He leaned back in his chair, in his white terry cloth robe and white underwear, and spread his legs," Mooney told Burrough. "And then he said, and these were his exact words, 'You're a smart boy. Figure it out.' " Mooney added that a singer groped by Pearlman told him, "Look, if a guy wants to massage me, and I'm getting a million dollars for it, you just go along with it. It's the price you got to pay."

Phoenix Stone, an early member of the Backstreet Boys, tells Vanity Fair Pearlman was "definitely inappropriate" with Nick Carter. Nick's mom, Jane Carter, wouldn't get into specifics, but said, "Certain things happened and it almost destroyed our family. I tried to warn everyone. I tried to warn all the mothers . . . I tried to expose him for what he was years ago."

Tim Christofore, a member of Take 5, recalls that during a sleepover at Pearlman's house, the music czar swan-dived onto his and another boy's bed and wrestled with them wearing only in a towel, which came off. "We were like, 'Ooh, Lou, that's gross.' What did I know? I was 13," Christofore told Vanity Fair.

Rich Cronin, lead singer of LFO, recalled Pearlman told him of an "ancient massage technique that if I massage you and we bond in a certain way, it will strengthen your aura."

Pearlman, 53, is in a Florida jail awaiting trial on bank fraud charges. Prosecutors say he scammed more than 1,000 investors out of $315 million. He'd been a fugitive until June when he was busted in Indonesia, living under a fake name. His lawyer did not return calls from Page Six

Shia and Rihanna OVER!!!

you that Shia LaBeouf and Rihanna were secretly dating. Now we can officially report to you that their relationship has ended.

According to a close friend of Rihanna, the Bajan beauty was the one that put an end to the relationship. The friend told MediaTakeOut.com, "Rihanna's schedule is very busy and Shia's really busy with [the new Indiana Jones movie] so this isn't the best time for them [to] be in a relationship." The pal added, "Besides, they were just having a little fun. Things weren't supposed to be getting serious."

And Rihanna's pal is convinced that the pop singer made the right decision. The insider told MediaTakeOut.com, "It's all for the best ... Shia has some commitment issues. And [Rihanna's] not trying to get her heart broken."

Ciara and 50 Make up???

October 02, 2007. It looks like 50 Cent and Ciara have kissed and made up. A few weeks ago MediaTakeOut.com told you that Ciara was furious with 50 Cent for hiring a look alike to pose on the cover of his new album. Now an insider tells us that Ciara's taken him back.

One of Ciara's longtime friends agreed to speak exclusively with MediaTakeOut.com - and give some insight into the superstar couple's relationship. The insider tells, "They care deeply for each other. People keep trying to make [their relationship] into some sort of fling, but it's not ... it's very serious." The insider added, "This is the deepest that I know Ciara has ever felt for a man."

And according to Ciara's friend, their relationship is stronger than ever. The insider explained, "Losing to Kanye West was devastating to [50 Cent] ... A lot of people aren't there for him like they used to be. But Ciara's been there to give him any support he needs ... As an entertainer, she knows what he's going through ... and I know that he appreciates it."

When MediaTakeOut.com asked whether Ciara was still upset over the photos on 50 Cent's album cover, Ciara's pal brushed it off. The friend explained, "With all that's going on with [50 Cent] right now, she couldn't just leave him ... She's just not that kind of person."

And 50 and Ciara's relationship is reportedly stronger than ever. The insider told MediaTakeOut.com that 50 Cent and Ciara actually share a home in Atlanta. The tipster explains, "50 owns a small ranch just outside of Atlanta where he and Ciara stay whenever he's in town ... and I suspect that's going to be happening a lot more often."

But our insider isn't the only one making such claims. During an interview with a NY's Hot 97 Radio Station, 50 Cent's DJ, DJ Whoo Kid, nearly let the cat out of the bag. The DJ was quoted as saying, "In Atlanta [50’s] got a nice little secret spot with a special someone. You know."



Are Bow Wow and Omarion involved in a sexual relationship??

Shad Moss, more popularly known by his stage name, Bow Wow, has been the main protege of Jermaine Dupri for almost a decade, since he was discovered as a young child by Snoop Dog and sent JD's way for artistic development. Their relationship evolved to such an extent that Bow Wow begin referring to JD as his father, and JD referred to him as his son.

But in a shocking twist, a few months ago, Moss stopped collaborating with his "father" and searched after completely new producers claiming he had outgrown JD's style and wanted to find his own, around the same time he began collaborating seriously with Omarion, deciding to form a partnership that would see them realize a duo album.

But a source in JD's camp, who spoke only on the condition of anonymity, claims that the real cause for the split was that Bow Wow expressed to JD that his relationship with Omarion was more than simply musical after the two were caught engaged in a sexual activity. The source would not go into detail but said "He (Jermaine Dupri) was going nuts about it. These two were in a main room in the house doing all this. Me and two other assistants was with him (Jermaine Dupri) and we saw it going down and he sent us out of the room and was yelling and screaming at them".

The source claims that during the confrontation, Bow Wow and Omarion confirmed what had happened. The source says that Dupri was not pleased with it, but ignored it at first because of his close relationship with Bow Wow.

A producer who worked on the first Omarion-Bow Wow single released only a few months ago, confirms that, "what was going on with them in the backrooms and in the studio was more than just two dudes working on music. These dudes was feeling each other like a man and a woman". He declined to go into detail but he also added that in the music industry it is not uncommon..."to see something like that. Folks do it all the time. Sometimes they do it for money or to get they deals. Some of them are just under the table with what they like sexually".

A former member of Omarion's group B2K, who wished to remain anonymous, confirmed the rumor that during the filming of the recent Lil Fizz/Ray-J video where all four members of B2K reunited, Omarion and Bow Wow were in constant communication. When asked about the two's relationship, he declined to say anything more out of "friendship". But he would neither confirm nor deny.


A video appeared only on youtube of a recent concert the two kicked off. The video was taken by a backstage assistant, and showed the two, through a slightly ajar door to their green room, in what appeared to be an embrace and amongst other contact. The video stopped at what appeared to be the start of elicit contact, and in the video description the poster claims that he couldn't post the rest because Youtube does not permit nudity.

A day and a half after it's upload, the video was deleted for Copyright Infringement, and the account was suspended.

Youtube has a policy that once a video is deleted for copyright infringement or nudity, it cannot be reuploaded to their servers at all, because Youtube makes use of a technology that records the entire digital coding, or digital signature of a video, and each time that video is reuploaded it will be denied, unless it is re-encoded. However, the poster has not re-encoded it and has not reuploaded it. And the source is sure that Bow Wow or Omarion's camp is behind it.

As the relationship between Moss and Dupri goes, the source says, JD himself didn't have an issue with it, but was uncomfortable and that Moss decided to part ways with him to have more comfort with Omarion and himself. The source also went on to say, "There is definitely a sexual relationship between them. But the industry is full of cats who are what is called Down Low. The ones who are most into it would suprise you".

No contact or confirmation would be given from either labels or camps.
