Rick Ross, debuting a much slimmer frame, hosted the “Prestige Sunday” party at BAMBOO Miami Beach celebrating DJ Camilo’s birthday. Also there for the birthday celebration: Flo Rida, Busta Rhymes, FABOLOUS and French Montana. The packed house was apparently the place to be, with a line outside stretching for blocks.
Singer Luis Miguel had dinner Sunday at the Forge with, says our spy, “a beautiful girl.” The duo dined in an area specially opened for them. Fitness drill sergeant Jillian Michaels was also at the iconic Miami Beach restaurant, where she ate rather healthfully — salmon and crispy cauliflower.
X Factor judge Kelly Rowland had dinner last Friday at Juvia, while Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter was there Sunday night. Jeter, along with retired Yankee Jorge Posada, was seen with a large group of friends Monday night at Zuma. Also at Zuma Monday were Mr. and Mrs. Pharrell Williams, along with a group. On Tuesday, perma-tanned George Hamilton was seen having a relaxed dinner with pals.
Jeter and Posada were also spotted at SLS Hotel South Beach, having dinner at Katsuya and later making their way to Hyde Beach, where they enjoyed bottle service and hung out with friends and other Hyde patrons.
