Mayhem Monday. It's complete mayhem to start the week off, beginning with Kobe Bryant creeping and possibly sleeping with someone that's not his wife? Someone that's hopefully sleeping well is Lil Wayne, but you'd never know it if you asked Eminem for his take. Those two are great on records together but not as good as Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z, who appear to have more records stashed away that are sure to make Kanye West happy. All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. The Black Mamba's Prey

Is Kobe Bryant putting his marriage on the line? You would have to think after the 2003 scandal and how much Vanessa and Kobe have tried to reunite over the past year, since the messy separation reports, there's no way the Los Angeles Lakers all-star would play with fire. Unfortunately, there's buzz going down about an Atlanta lady being in the picture. Tattle Tailzz has more:


Is Kobe cheating again on Vanessa?? The Lakers were in Atlanta earlier this week to play against the Hawks on Wednesday March 13th. TattleTailzz exclusive: According to our sources Kobe was allegedly spotted out on a dinner date recently in Atlanta, GA with an attractive tall Spanish female who flew in town to meet Kobe in Atlanta. Who is the mysterious women? We are not sure, however the source did say that she "looked familiar like she has been with other celebrities or players possibly just a jump off." When you are a millionaire, married young and a superstar are these things expected??? (Tattle Tailzz)

Could this situation end up turning into something bigger than the Ice-T/Coco situation? Not likely, but to think Kobe and Vanessa could be on the verge of separating is a bit too hard to ignore. Who would want first dibs on the mother of two? Drake? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

2. Whatcha Gonna Do

Everybody and their mother went to go visit Lil Wayne over the weekend after reports of his health being in critical condition following some seizures. We've yet to "hear" Wayne, aside from one tweet, but that's not stopping Drake, Birdman, Mack Maine and more let us know he's recovering. Even Eminem got approached and asked about Wayne. TMZ has the coverage:

Eminem made a rare public appearance this weekend -- dining out at a popular L.A. restaurant ... and it's possible he's in town to visit his friend Lil Wayne. TMZ shot footage of Em leaving Marino restaurant on Melrose by himself Friday night ... covering his head with a hoodie. But when we asked about Lil Wayne -- who he's rapped with on multiple songs including, "Forever" and "Drop the World" -- it was clear, Mr. Mathers wasn't in the mood to talk. We broke the story ... Wayne is in the ICU at an L.A. hospital after suffering multiple seizures last week. (TMZ)

Who can blame Eminem, let alone any artist, for not wanting to talk to the paparazzi? It seems no matter what is said in the on-street interviews, they always get taken and turned into a nasty headline-generating story that usually lands in here. Was Em just playing it safe by not talking or was the news too upsetting to speak on? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

3. 20/20 Vision

Is Justin Timberlake really taking over the music industry? He has some hot music out right now, but nothing in comparison to summer 2006 when he had everyone thirsty for those new tunes. But could Jay-Z be the savior to help take him back to the top, much like T.I. did seven years ago? Billboard Biz has more:

Timberlake explained that he and Jay initially hooked up while he, producer Timbaland and Jay were working on Beyonce's forthcoming album. "I was with Tim and we were working on stuff for Miss Beyonce," he said. "And she made the mistake of letting Jay and I have another room at the studio. Actually, I don't want to give too much away, but we've done a lot of songs together. So hopefully those will find a way to see the light of day." With Justin's track record of waiting four to six years between releasing albums, it's not likely that fans will find the Jay-Z and JT tracks on a follow-up to his "20/20" any time soon. But Jay-Z is quietly at work on his next solo album. His last was 2009's "The Blueprint 3." In 2011, Jay partnered with rap brother Kanye West for their acclaimed super duo album "Watch the Throne." With that in mind, maybe Justin and Jay will release a "Throne"-style EP or album of their own this year. Nothing's been confirmed, but it's not a far-fetched idea. They've got great chemistry. Jay joined Justin on stage at the Grammys in February, last Saturday on "SNL" and the two will spend a good amount of time together in the coming months during their "Legends of the Summer" stadium tour. (Billboard Biz)

Would a full album from Jay-Z/Justin Timberlake be able to do as good as something like Watch the Throne in 2011 or even those Best of Both World albums? Jay and Justin sound great together, but for an EP's worth? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

That about wraps it up for today. This is SOHH On The Spot giving you the morning scoop from your favorite gossip sites.
