  NO MORE SAD LOVE SONGS FOR TONI& EDDIE? Has Eddie Murphy finally settled down? I can't call it, but rumours are buzzing that he is trying to unbreak Toni Braxton's heart. The Tower Heist star, 50 and the singing superstar 44 , 'are seeing each other,' according to Us Weekly.  what's more, they're both 'very into it... Eddie - who has eight kids from previous relationships - is said to Have even cheered on the mother of two at her L.A concert on February 19.  She's been separated from singer Keri Lewis since 2009, the couple were married for eight years and have sons Denim, 11, and eight-year-old Diezel together.   A spokesperson for Braxton told the magazine: 'Toni and Eddie are just friends and have been fans of each other's work for a long time.' But 'insiders' say 'Their kids have met and everything. It's getting very serious.'             LIL WAYNE AND LIMP BIZKIT TO COLLABORATE LIMP BIZKIT is collaborating with LIL WAYNE on a single called "Ready to Go". It isn't quite as random as it sounds.  Limp Bizkit recently signed with Cash Money, Wayne's label. BIRDMAN . . . the co-founder of Cash Money . . . says, quote, "It'll be a great way to let the world know that [the band] is a part of us.  It's rock, but it's hip-hop-rock.  I think we got that hip-hop-rock swagger." Wayne is taking some heat for this on Twitter, with people Tweeting things like: . . . "More signs 2012 is the end of the world" . . . . . . "Finally! [says] No One" . . . (HAHAHAAA that one killed me :)) . . . "RIP Weezy" . . . . . . "Wow.  Worst thing since Lil Wayne trying to play guitar" . . . --And, most hilariously quote... "No one has worse taste in white people music than black people."                   MIKE EPPS MAKES THREATS Comedian Mike Epps' 18-year-old daughter claims the comedian has been threatening her ... promising to "f**k her up" -- and now, she's turning to the police for help ... but Mike says she's a liar.  Bria Epps filed a police report with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department yesterday -- claiming the threats started after a recent argument between her and her dad. Bria told TMZ, the argument started when Mike appeared on an episode of "The Wendy Williams Show" earlier this month and gave a shout out to two of his kids -- but that didn't sit well with his other offspring. Bria -- whom Mike fathered before he married his current wife -- tells us, she called Mike to express her feelings, and when things got heated ... she threatened to "air some family drama" to the media. According to the police report, Mike flipped at the threat -- claiming he'd "f**k her up" But sources close to Mike say,  the tension started before the show -- because Bria asked for Mike to give her lump sums of cash to pay for her college tuition. Mike refused, insisting on paying the school directly ... and that's when Bria snapped and made the threat.                   DON HENLEY IS NOT PLAYING WITH YOU FRANK OCEAN! THE EAGLES may sue FRANK OCEAN for his song "American Wedding", which includes a LOT of "Hotel California".  A spokesman for Eagles singer DON HENLEY says, quote, "Frank Ocean did not merely 'sample' a portion of the Eagles' 'Hotel California'; he took the whole master track, plus the song's existing melody, and replaced the lyrics with his own." Frank took to Tumblr to vent, saying "Don Henley's label Rhino is apparently intimidated by my rendition of Hotel California," Ocean wrote. "He (they) threatened to sue if I perform it again." Thier response.  "This is not creative, let alone 'intimidating.' It's illegal." Ocean's "American Wedding" is a standout from his free 2011 album Nostalgia, Ultra.  During his live concerts, Ocean sings the song with graphics from the popular "Guitar Hero" video game playing in the background. It is one of the highlights of his live show, but according to the 24-year-old, he will face legal action if he continues to perform the song. On his Tumblr, Ocean wondered what all the fuss was about. "Sh--'s weird. Ain't this guy rich as f---? Why sue the new guy," he wrote. "I didn't make a dime off that song. I released it for free. If anything I'm paying homage." (ummmm while I agree that Ocean is RIDICULOUSLY talented, he's also a little mislead if he can't also reason that he's  using Henley's song, melodies, and hard work and he IS making money if it's the highlight of his shows which people PAY to see) WOMP WOMP           WILL AND DENZEL GO "UPTOWN" WILL SMITH and DENZEL WASHINGTON are starring in a remake of the 1974 BILL COSBY/ SIDNEY POITIER movie "Uptown Saturday Night"           I remember watching this movie over and over with my Dad as a kid.. Can't wait! 🙂               DR. SEUSS AND THE LORAX! Today is the anniversary of Dr Seuss' Birthday....  He died in 1991 but his books, words and magical characters will live on forever...   I am a HUGE Dr Seuss fan and excited to note that the movie The Lorax is out in theatres today. 🙂 This is the first time "The Lorax" has been turned into a movie, but it was made into a TV special in 1972, the year after he wrote it.) Have a fantastic weekend! That's the Juice and I will leave you with these wise words..
