Jay Z and Beyonce meet the Estefans in Miami; Dwyane Wade’s love child rumors


The Miami Heat’s Dwyane Wade announced his proposal to actress Gabrielle Union last Saturday via social media, along with a picture of her huge solitaire rock. On Monday, however, several reports emerged, including one from Entertainment Tonight and another from Gossip Cop, that Wade has fathered a child by a woman he was seeing during a “break” he and Union were taking (Wade talked about the break with Jay Leno on The Tonight Show in September). ET reports that Wade spent some time with the boy over the holidays and that a source said Wade has known the baby's mother for many years and that Union is aware of the situation.

Jay Z and Beyoncé were seen Sunday walking into Zuma, asking for a private table and, says our spy, “When they didn't like the table they were shown, they just walked out.” Queen Bey indeed. Earlier that day, they met the Estefans — Gloria, Emilio and daughter Emily — for lunch at the newly opened Sea Salt & Pepper. Rumors say Beyoncé is playing a New Year's Eve gig (and staying) at the recently sold Versace Mansion.

The aforementioned Emily Estefan, 19, attends the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston. But while home on Christmas break, she played a gig with the band Groove Dogs Saturday night — she plays bass and drums — at Jimbo's Sand Bar on Hollywood beach. Mom and Dad were there, too. Says a rep for the family, “Emilio and Gloria are proud parents who go see her play all the time.”

Ryan Philippe was seen late Sunday afternoon at Charles St. at The Boulan Hotel after what our spy surmises, “must have been a long night,” enjoying eggs Benedict with close friends. Philippe was also spotted Sunday afternoon, sort of incognito in baseball hat and glasses, at the SLS Hotel South Beach where he and his friends indulged in bottle service and Patron shots.

Mike Myers was seen on Christmas Day, lounging poolside at the Delano. Myers was in town with wife Kelly Tisdale and his family. On Monday night, LeBron James was seen downstairs at the Delano, partying at FDR with teammates, including Mario Chalmers.

Football legend Jim Brown had Christmas dinner with his entire family at Prime 112. On Friday, Star Jones, Vivica Fox and Tomi Rose, ONE Sotheby's International Realtor and cast member of the forthcoming Hot Listings Miami on Bravo, went to the Miami Heat game and to dinner at the sceney steakhouse.

Roberto Justus, host of Brazil's version of The Apprentice, was spotted with new girlfriend, model Ana Paula Siebert, and family, spending Christmas Eve at Zuma. Also seen at the downtown Japanese hot spot: Venezuelan actress Ana Karina Manco with a girlfriend, Brazilian football player Elano Blumer and actor Armand Assante, all separately, with friends and family.

Jamie Foxx was seen Thursday night at Story nightclub. Foxx also hosted the party Sunday night at LIV.

    Amber Valletta comes clean: I’m a raging addict

    Amber Valletta isn’t playing the blame game. The model-actress (Hitch, Revenge, Transporter 2) talked candidly in a video for and takes full responsibility for her addiction to drugs and alcohol. In the clip, Valletta says she started young, sniffing markers while growing up in Oklahoma, then graduated to the hard stuff when she began posing for magazines. Even though she has been sober for 25 years, the self proclaimed raging addict still has moments when she wants to “distract herself” because she’s “uncomfortable being a human being.” The 40-year-old mother of one, who is married to volleyball player Chip McCaw, credits looking inward constantly to stay healthy.
