Chris Brown Splits From Publicist

28 Mar

Last week was one of ups and downs for Chris Brown. And things just got a little more interesting since he and his previous publicist, Tammy Brook (pictured), have parted ways. Initially, there were reports that Brook quit after Brown’s outburst on GMA, but Necole Bitchie reported that Brook was actually fired.

  “It was something that was in the works for a while, his team wasn’t happy with her and their contract was up“.

I thought Brook did a good job considering she helped bring Chris back to life after the Rihanna incident had him blacklisted and nearly ended his career. Tammy tells TMZ:

“I am an entertainment/music publicist and was hired as a publicist, as they often are, to work specifically on his music publicity for the term up to the release of Chris Brown’s F.A.M.E. album, which was released on Tuesday March 22 and is entering the Billboard and iTunes charts at number 1 this week.

I love and support Chris and it has been an honor to be a part of this album and I look forward to the possibility of working with him again in the future.”

With clients that included Terrell Owens and Mike Tyson, Tammy knows a thing or two about managing a crisis! A new publicist has not been announced yet.

It’s A Boy! Mike Tyson Has Eighth Child

26 Jan

Former Heavyweight World Champ Mike Tyson just welcomed his eighth child into the world. The 44-year-old boxer and his wife Lahika Spicer Tyson, 32, had a baby boy Tuesday in a Las Vegas hospital. The couple already has a 2-year-old daughter together named Milan, and Mike has five other children born to other mothers.

A source close to the couple says, “Mike and Lakiha are very happy and everyone is doing great.” The two married just ten days after the tragic death of his four-year-old daughter Exodus in May 2009.

In an interview on ‘The View,’ the boxer admitted, “I’m totally destitute and broke. Yeah,I have no money.” When co-host Joy Behar asked how that was possible, given his success and endorsements, he replied, “Um, I had a lot of fun.”

                                                      
Mike also told the ladies of ‘The View’ that he’s “always had a lot of responsibilities. I just didn’t take em. I didn’t care. It’s hard living up to them. It’s harder than being the heavyweight champion of the world.”

In addition to being a new dad, Mike has an upcoming documentary series on pigeon racing premiering later this winter on Animal Planet, and he’ll also be reprising his role in ‘The Hangover 2.’
