Former Guns ‘n’ Roses axeman Slash was seen Friday night dining with friends at Prime 112. On Saturday at the sceney steakhouse, Clive Davis held court in the wine room while Queen Latifah did the same at another table. Across the street at Prime Italian, Reggie Bush was seen having dinner at midnight with a large group. On Sunday, Slash headed there with DJ Chuckie, with whom he debuted his new collaboration along with DJ Betatraxx at Ultra. Stopping by that musical table to say hello was producer Timbaland.

Leonardo DiCaprio, smoking an electric cigarette, and eight friends were seen Thursday night first at the Delano and then at Baoli, where he stayed for three hours. EXTRA host Mario Lopez was also at the Delano’s Rose Bar filming a segment on mojito mixing.

Ryan Lochte has definitely made a, uh, splash on South Beach. On Tuesday night, he filmed his reality show at hip-hop hot spot Bamboo. Lochte also had brunch with some male pals Wednesday at Terraza at the Shore Club, where they were overheard recapping the night before where apparently two women got into a bathroom brawl over the Olympic swimmer-slash-lothario. “His friends were making fun of the fact that women were fighting over him,” says our snitch.

DJ Irie put so-called celebrities-turned-DJs like Paris Hilton on blast at the Winter Music Conference panel “Smirnoff Presents: Brand Yourself like a Master.” According to the Miami-bred DJ, people like Hilton ruin the art. He called for fellow DJs to stand up and protect their livelihood. We’ll scratch to that!

David Jackson, better known by his stage name Fabolous, was spotted Sunday at Kimpton’s EPIC Hotel. Over at Zuma, LMFAO’s Redfoo and SkyBlu were seen sporting pink leopard pants and proving all was well despite their recent musical hiatus.

With a night off from Ultra and Winter Music Conference, twin DJ duos the EC Twins and Nervo had dinner Monday at CATCH Miami at the James Royal Palm.
