TLC Singer Chili Sparked Dating Rumors When Spotted With Actor Matthew Lawrence




According to Radar Online, TLC member Chilli(actual name Rozonda Thomas) and actor Matthew Lawrence have the rumor mill going after the pair was recently spotted on a beach together in Hawaii.


Lawrence is currently going through a divorce from estranged wife Cheryl Burke, Radar Online reports.

Paparazzi snapped photos of the supposed couple soaking in some sun on the beach, according to images obtained by TMZ.


A rep for Chili allegedly said to TMZ that the two actors are not dating, according to Popsugar.

To clear the air of any speculation, Chilli’s rep told TMZ that the “Waterfalls” singer is shooting a show on the island and invited friends to come out and show her support, Radar Online reports. 

Lawrence has tried to stay out of the public eye since Burke filed to end their three-year union in February,  Radar Online reported. 



Lawrence and Burke met while on “Dancing with the Stars” and got married but eventually drew apart, “We definitely did try. People evolve. People grow. And sometimes they grow together and sometimes they, unfortunately, grow apart,” Burke said to People in May of their breakup.


Burke also added on her podcast Burke In The Game, “At the end of the day, you know, when I close my eyes and go to bed, it is kind of lonely,” she disclosed in July.

“I wouldn’t mind having a text relationship with someone or even just someone to flirt with,” Burke continued, saying she is “open to definitely starting to date, slowly but surely.”

Diddy Pays Sting $2,000 a Day For a Sample He Used in the ’90s

Diddy Pays Sting $2,000 a Day For a Sample He Used in the ’90s









Rapper and record executive Sean “Diddy” Combs rose to prominence in the 1990s alongside his good friend, The Notorious B.I.G. After Biggie’s death, Diddy paid tribute to the “Hypnotize” rapper with his own song. But the Sting song that it sampled continues to cost him money to this day.


Diddy sampled The Police’s ‘Every Breath You Take’ for his song ‘I’ll Be Missing You’

The Notorious B.I.G.’s death in 1997 rocked the music industry and let to an outpouring of condolences for his loved ones. That same year, Diddy — who went by Puff Daddy at the time — released “I’ll Be Missing You,” a heartfelt tribute to Biggie featuring R&B group 112 and his ex-wife, Faith Evans. The song won the Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group and spent 11 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.


The song famously samples The Police’s 1983 hit “Every Breath You Take.” Sampling had become a common practice in hip-hop (thanks in part to artists like Biggie), but laws around sampling remained unclear.


Diddy never cleared the sample with The Police, leading to some frustration from the band’s members and some financial difficulties for Diddy. 


Diddy didn’t ask to sample the song, so he owes Sting $2,000 a day for the song

If Diddy had asked permission to sample The Police’s iconic song, he likely would have only had to pay 25 percent of the publishing royalties. But because of copyright law, Sting — the group’s frontman — was able to claim 100 percent of the royalties.
