Barneys New York Issues Apology To Jay Z
He has a massive partnership with Barneys New York slated to kick off for the holidays, but Jay Z has been getting pressure to back out due to the store’s racial profiling scandal.
However, head honcho Mark Lee has personally apologized to the “99 Problems” rapper for his company’s sins, hoping his words will be sufficient atonement to keep the business venture on track.
Lee declared, "We deeply regret that these recent events have distracted from the great work of the [Shawn] Carter Foundation, and we offer our sincere apologies to Mr. Carter."
Jay Z (real name Shawn Carter) will launch the New York Holiday collection on November 20th, with a portion of the proceeds to go to his Shawn Carter Foundation.
In response to a petition asking him to sever ties with Barneys, Jay previously explained, "If I make snap judgments, no matter who it's towards, aren't I committing the same sin as someone who profiles? I am no stranger to being profiled and I truly empathize with anyone that has been put in that position. Hopefully this brings forth a dialogue to effect real change."

REUNITED? Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian SPOTTED TOGETHER At Kanye West's "YEEZUS" Concert in LA
Lamar Odom and Bruce Jenner joined the Kardashian clan for Kanye West's "Yeezus" concert at the Staples Center in LA. (Check the pic at the link) So are the twosome officially back together and ending their separation?
Though Lamar and Khloe were seated together, sources told TMZ that they have not reconciled. And, of coirse, they would know since the info is coming straight from the Kardashian kamp.
Reportedly, the family invited Lamar out for the evening because he's been clean and sober (for a few weeks) and they are "supporting his recovery and wanted him to have a good time." Oh...how nice of them.
Anywho, Lamar has hired Lindsay Lohan's lawyer, Shawn Holley, to defend him against the photographer who claims Lamar attacked him earlier this summer. Shawn and Lamar recently filed an answer to the photographer's lawsuit saying, he "provoked [Lamar's] unlawful and wrongful conduct."
We'll keep you posted about the case....

Chaka Khan kicked off the night with a powerful set along with Pharrell and Usher. One of the more ‘interesting’ attendees was Tina Knowles, Beyonce’s mother, who made her first public appearance with another man, since divorcing ex-husband, Mathew Knowles. Rumor has it, he’s an actor named Richard Lawson.
If he looks familiar, it’s because of his role on “How Stella Got Her Groove Back”, where he played opposite Whoopi Goldberg and Angela Basset. We’re keeping our eyes locked on these two! Anywho, check out photos from the event.
