Sean “Diddy” Combs Las Vegas Appearance Causes Red Carpet Cancellation

During Saturday’s Shane Mosely and Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s after-fight hosting appearance by Sean “Diddy” Combs at Eva Langoria’s Parker’s Eve nightclub in Las Vegas, the crowd was so huge at Crystals (CityCenter) that management was forced to cancel the red carpet event to ensure fan safety. 

“There are 6,000 people outside Eve now,” Diddy tweeted. 

Among the attendees:  TI, Gabrielle Union, Swizz Beatz and Nelly. 

Meanwhile, dining at Eva Langoria Parker’s Beso Restaurant (CityCenter), Paris and Nicky Hilton were spotted, who later partied at Tao (The Venetian), while down the Strip, Mya hosted the evening at Pure nightclub (Caesars Palace).

Floyd Mayweather Jr. Vs. Shane Mosely Las Vegas Slugfest

Floyd Mayweather Jr. , on left, is undefeated, a six-time world champion and perhaps the biggest draw in boxing. 

Shane Mosley is a great champion who’s past his prime and probably couldn’t carry a pay-per-view card by himself. 

However, it’s Mayweather who has the most to prove from Saturday night’s welterweight bout in Las Vegas (HBO Pay-Per-View). He’s arguably the most-skilled boxer in the world. 

Instead of that distinction drawing him praise, Mayweather is reviled for his defense-first style, as well as his big mouth. 

He prides himself on being the greatest ever (in large part to his 40-0 record) and at the same time he’s in a slugfest to be considered the best boxer today. 

Manny Pacquiao ostensibly holds that crown as much for his recent accomplishments as his penchant to be a warrior in the ring. Courage is what separates Mayweather and Pacquiao in many people’s perceptions — with Pacquiao being a gusty fighter while Mayweather hits and runs. 

Only time will tell who will emerge victorious.

Michael Jackson had a Gay Lover?

Since his death last year, every nutjob has come forward claiming to be Michael Jackson’s kid/wife/sperm donor/spiritual vessel.  So it’s surprising it has taken this long for anyone to put their hand up and say they were his gay lover. 

Jason Pfeiffer, a heavyset man in his mid-30s, was the former assistant to MJ’s dermatologist Dr. Arnold Klein and now has come forward claiming he was the Pop King’s boyfriend.  

Dr. Klein claims he saw the couple together while Jackson was shirtless, adding, “When you see two people looking at each other you know what’s happening. I was just very happy for both of them.”

Klein, a lontigme confidant of Jackson’s, was rumored to be the biological father of the singer’s two older children, Prince and Paris. 

Pfeiffer, now a CEO of a medical company, says he began a “passionate and sexual” relationship with Jackson shortly after they met in 2008 in Klein’s office and continued up until Jackson’s death last June. 

“We were very close,” Pfeiffer reveals in an exclusive interview last night with “Extra” entertainment reporter Alicia Jacobs. “I know we loved each other. I know he told me that all the time. I told him that all the time. I believe that he was probably my soul mate,” said Pfeiffer. 

The two reportedly bonded while talking about their childhoods. 

“We were just sitting there and we both started to cry and I got up and went over to him and said it’s going to be okay Michael… We hugged,” Pfeiffer adds. “And it was kind of then that the hug was a little bit more. It wasn’t until a few months later that it was obvious that Michael had feelings for me as well.” 

As to Michael’s denials that he was gay, Pfeiffer says, “I just assumed that he was probably bisexual.” 

Pfeiffer believes Michael would approve of him setting the record straight.

Criss Angel Wins “Magician of the Century” Award

Las Vegas magician and illusionist and Luxor headliner Criss Angel has won the “Magician of the Century” award, which was presented to him after Angel’s second “Believe” show this Tuesday by Tony Hassini, founder of the International Magicians Society.

Cirque du Soleil’s New Michael Jackson Show in Las Vegas

Cirque du Soleil has confirmed months of rumors and announced plans to unveil a Michael Jackson-based show in 2011 in Las Vegas. Shows, actually—there will be two of them.

The first, a touring arena show, will debut next fall and get “an extended run” in Las Vegas before the permanent Jackson show opens in late 2012.

Assuming none of the existing shows—KÀ, The Beatles Love, O, Mystère, Zumanity, Believe or Viva Elvis—don’t close between now and then, the incoming MJ spectacle will make the eighth resident Cirque show in Las Vegas.

Cirque is keeping tight-lipped about where the show will be housed, among other facts, but its promised “special lifestyle projects, including a nightclub.”  Rumors say the show will be at Mandalay Bay.

The new show announcement comes less than a year after Jackson’s death on June 25, 2009. 

Michael Jackson’s estate will receive royalties from the projects—but it will also share in half the costs of “creating, developing, building and producing” the shows, too.

The size and scope of the Cirque show will be unprecedented, including larger than life 3-D technology and most likely the largest budget for any Las Vegas show.
