Today’s top gossip:

50 Cent‘s Connecticut mansion has been broken into by wine-loving stoners, we read. Security guards at the rapper’s home, which once belonged to boxer Mike Tyson, no less, called the police at 6am (EST) after noticing a suspicious car in the driveway. Police searched the house and found two men inside, one of whom was hiding in a closet drinking a bottle of 50 Cent‘s wine, presumably to calm his nerves about the prospect of being found by the stacked rapper. They were then arrested and also found to be in possession of marijuana – quite the party going on (

I’m like, ‘No, don’t you dare.’ Even my mum doesn’t call me that.” Message received (The Sun).
