Making his first appearance in public in quite some time, alleged batterer and issuer of criminal threats Chris Brown sat with pal Usher and watched the Orlando Magic take on the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA playoffs Sunday night in Florida.

Usher is part owner of the Cavaliers. Chris Brown has yet to own up to beating the living crap out of Rihanna after attending a pre-Grammy party in February.

Cleanin' Up Real Nice

Two of the most beloved, baby-faced singers around chat it up, take in exciting NBA action and discuss Chris Brown's legal the Cavaliers' offensive strategy.

The Magic won, 99-89, to claim a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference Finals. With the exception of one miraculous shot by LeBron James, Orlando has been smacking Usher's Cavs around harder than ... well, you get the idea.

Chris Brown's preliminary hearing is scheduled for Thursday. His lawyer will attempt to get the case thrown out as a result of the leaked Rihanna photo.

No, not the nude Rihanna photos, the one of her face after Chris Brown finished with it that mysteriously turned up on TMZ. Sorry for the confusion.

Finally.

Weeks after Chris Brown "allegedly" used Rihanna's face as his personal speed bag (only to have her inexplicably take him back), a celebrity is calling him out.

Specifically, Usher is slamming Brown over weekend photos that show the troubled 19-year-old singer smiling and riding around on jet skis like a tool in Miami.

In a behind-the-scenes video for Jermaine Dupri's "Living the Life" series, Usher is seen talking about the pictures with some other men in a recording studio.

"I'm a little disappointed," Usher says about the Chris Brown photos.

"After the other photo [of Rihanna's battered face]? C'mon, Chris. Have a little bit of remorse, man. The man's on jet skis? Like, just relaxing in Miami?"

Usher probably wouldn't be buddy-buddy with Chris Brown nowadays.

Brown - who is scheduled to be arraigned on Thursday for allegedly assaulting Rihanna February 8 in L.A., unless the D.A. postpones the court date (likely) - and Rihanna were staying at a house owned by Sean "Diddy" Combs on Star Island.

Mr. Tameka Foster was far from pleased with this display.

Although Rihanna wasn't spotted with him, Brown was photographed several times smiling, riding a jet ski and flexing his arm muscles like a total loser.

Both Chris Brown and Rihanna were photographed arriving in L.A. Monday.

A serious family emergency caused Usher to cancel his performance at a pre-Grammy Awards party last night - and one celebrity gossip report claims it's because his wife, Tameka Foster, is in trouble after having cosmetic surgery.

Music bigwig Clive Davis announced at his Pre-Grammy Bash that Usher's last minute cancellation was due to a "serious injury in the family."

Foster, Tameka

According to Access Hollywood, Tameka had "experienced complications from plastic surgery" in Brazil. What work she was having done is unclear.

Access claims a neurosurgeon is on the way to South America to assist Mrs. Usher - who just gave birth to their second child back in December.

An earlier report said that Tameka Foster was dead after botched plastic surgery, but Usher's rep quickly denied that. It is believed, however, that Foster did indeed suffer serious complications from a cosmetic procedure.

Above all else, we hope Tameka Foster is alright.

But we also look forward to seeing if she is worthy of joining our celebrity plastic sugery hall of fame! It's an elite group, but we think she can do it!

Another celebrity baby has been ushered into the world.

Usher and Tameka Foster are the proud new parents of a boy named Naviyd Ely Raymond, born yesterday, as a source confirms that the singer was by his wife's side during the delivery.

The child joins older brother Usher Raymond V, who turned 1 on November 26.

Last month, Usher told Access Hollywood that his impending baby was "one of the best Christmas gifts there is to have."

Looks like the holidays have arrived early for the crooner and his wife!

Another baby is on the way for one of Hollywood's most controversial couples.

Tameka Foster and Usher welcomed their first child, Usher Raymond V, in November 2007.

Since then, the singer hasn't been shy about how much he loves being a father.

"I'm so proud to be a father by the time I'm 30," Usher said last month. "I'd hate to be 80 years old and not be able to run with my kids. I need to still be able to do flips when they're in high school!"

Usher is correct: he and Tameka Foster are expecting a second child!

Usher as a mom-ager again.

Following a public dispute and dissolution of their professional relationship in 2007, the singer has rehired mother Jonetta Patton as his manager.

"Usher has dissolved his management arrangement with Benny Medina and has re-engaged Jonnetta Patton as his manager," his representative said in a statement Wednesday.

According to a last month story in The New York Daily News, Usher was disappointed that his CD "Here I Stand" sold just 433,000 copies in its first week. As a result, the idea of making up with the woman that brought him into this world was broached.

"People have been telling Usher to listen to his mother," an insider told The New York Daily News. "Nobody knows how to sell him better than she does."

Wife Tameka Foster may take issue with that statement; but fans of Usher have taken issue with Foster since she had the gall to marry their heart throb.

Usher may takes his job as a singer very seriously, but it's nothing compared to how focused he is on raising his 9-month-old namesake, Usher Raymond V.

The latter makes his public debut on the August cover of Essence magazine, as the former talks up the responsibility of fatherhood.

Brad, Angelina and Six Kids!

"Now I represent what he is to become," Usher says about his son. "He's gonna admire me, he's gonna look up to me. He's gonna say, 'I wanna be' or he should say 'I wanna be like my father. I wanna be a man of valor. I wanna possess what my father has as a man.'"

As for advice Usher and wife Tameka Foster have for other parents, the musician says:

"You should never abandon that responsibility, which is to be there, reading with your child, being supportive of your child's growth."

We have one other piece of advice: you should never debut your child the same day Jamie Lynn Spears comes out with her first photo with Maddie Briann.

Come on, Usher and Tameka. Little Usher simply can't compete with Maddie for publicity.

While the Tameka Foster bashing has quieted over the last few months, Usher still feel the needs to defend his wife and his marriage.

"I'm very happy, and in a great place being a married man, but still obligated as an artist to service and have the relationship that I built through music with my fans," the R&B star recently told the Associated Press.

Early Show Performance

With a new album and a new baby in his life, you'd think the man with such amazing abs would wear a perpetual smile. And he's trying to. But critics sometimes get Usher down.

"If you respond to negativity, there is really no positive that you can get out of it. Unfortunately, no matter how real something is to you, of course people are going to always have an opinion," the musician said of his marriage to Foster.

In closing, Usher took a shot at celebrity gossip blogs:

"Unfortunately, opinions matter for some reason. Bloggers have an opinion, and now people quote what they read from bloggers, but it's not a testament of what the reality is."

The truth hurts, doesn't it, Perez Hilton?

Usher Quotes

As an African-American, to be there for my child is so important when there are so many young African-American kids without their fathers. I just want him to grow up to be as wise as he can possibly be, kind and open hearted. [Fatherhood] changes everything about me.
