Motionless Monday. You’re going to be stuck to your seats today and what better way to start things off on President’s Day than a bloodied up Rihanna in London? Ouch! Speaking of the United Kingdom, it turns out Jay-Z is packing his bags from NBA All-Star Weekend in Houston and heading across the sea for a big budget event. Any guesses? There’s no guessing what’s driving Lil Wayne so crazy toward the Miami Heat and NBA, especially since he’s found love, at least temporarily, with a team player’s wife? All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. London Bridge
Don’t worry, there’s no rift between Rihanna and Chris Brown and the stunning R&B beauty did not find herself in some horrific crash, but she did manage to spill a little bit of blood while out in London over the weekend. TMZ has the inside on what went down with RiRi:
Rihanna capped off a night of partying in London with a bloodied knee after someone allegedly threw a bottle in her direction … and screamed things at her about Chris Brown. According to reports, RiRi was leaving a club called The Box when someone threw a bottle of Lucozade (a UK energy drink) in her direction. The bottle didn’t connect, but Rihanna allegedly scraped her knee during the commotion when she brushed up against a metal shop grate. Rihanna was in town for London Fashion Week. We reached out to a rep for RiRi — so far, no word back. (TMZ)
As sick as it might sound, Rihanna can even make something as nasty as a bloody leg cut look pretty sexy. It’s too bad she got targeted by an anti-Chris Brown fan who wanted to take out frustration by trying to hurt a woman. Does anyone see the irony? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
2. Big Ballin’
Jay-Z will probably live forever on the Forbes list, as long as he keeps making some good music, a few key business moves and stays married to the one and only Beyoncé. It’s because of his wealth and fame that he’s supposedly going to throw a big event out in London following Wednesday’s Brit Awards. Gigwise has more:
Jay-Z is planning to throw a BRIT Awards after-party in London, and is going to splash out half a million pounds for it. According to The Sun the rapper is splashing out £500,000 on a bash for all his Roc Nation employees. Rita Ora, Beyonce and new label signing Kylie Minogue are likely to be in attendance. Thousands of pounds of champagne and seafood has reportedly been shipped in for the party, and Jay-Zhas apparently recruited the talents of Calvin Harris to DJ at the event, which is to be held at London’s Hakkasan restaurant. (Gigwise)
When you think about it, Rita Ora “is” signed to Roc Nation and she could walk away pretty big at the BRIT Awards this week. For anyone still not familiar with all the fuss about the BRIT Awards, just think of it as London’s version of the Grammy Awards. #SOHHWhatchaThink?
3. Bet Your Man Can’t
How upset is Lil Wayne these days? Enough to say that he’s done with not only the NBA, but LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh? Well, he might not heart them anymore, but it turns out Lil Wayne gave a mother-you-know-what to a certain you-know-who that’s the wife to a player who-you-know…well, you get the point. Rap Radar has the footage:
“Let’s finish having a good time. When I say ‘F*ck,’ you say ‘NBA.’ F*ck! When I say ‘F*ck,’ you say ‘Miami Heat.’ F*ck! You let them n*ggas know I’m from the streets so I ain’t going on no Twitter beef — take it to the f*cking streets n*gga. F*ck all these n*ggas. F*ck LeBron, f*ck D-Wade, f*ck all them n*ggas man. And, and, and I f*cked Chris Bosh’s wife.” (Rap Radar)
Ouch. Is this just Lil Wayne going hot and cold? It seems he’s had issues with players before, we all remember him partying with the Dallas Mavericks when they beat the Heat in the 2011 Finals and then a year later Wayne hanging out with the Heat players after they won their 2012 Finals championship. Is it really a wrap with him? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
That about wraps it up for today. This is SOHH On The Spot giving you the morning scoop from your favorite gossip sites.
