It really is looking like RIHANNA and CHRIS BROWN are over, at least for now. Officially, Rihanna wants to focus on her career and business ventures, although she was spotted at a basketball game the other night with a guy that the tabloids described as a 'mystery man.' Meanwhile, those same tabloids say Brown was out with a mysterious blonde. She was later identified as 22-year-old Keisha Kimball and she's a waitress at L.A.'s Playhouse nightclub. She was photographed holding Brown's hand inside the club and is being blamed for Chris and Rihanna breaking up. However, Keisha tells TMZ the real story is that she knows Chris from being a regular at the club and adds that she doesn't go for black guys, although she's not racist and says it's just a dating preference.

An unnamed woman went to a Sandy, Utah hotel and knocked on the door. Another woman answered and began assaulting her before the violent femme and a man pulled her into the room and accused her of doing them wrong. The man then pulled a gun and fired, narrowly missing the woman's head before they fled with her purse. Rather than call police, the woman decided to follow the armed pair and jumped into the back of their pickup to try and retrieve the purse. When the woman saw her in the back of the truck, she fired two more shots at her before the man stopped and beat her up again. The punch drunk woman finally jumped out of the moving truck, receiving a chipped tooth and some abrasions in the process.
