Bobby V has been hiding under a rock for a minute but has finally decided to come up for air. He recently sat down with to discuss what type of woman he would think about “Putting a Ring On It.”

Bobby V says he can’t get down with a chick that has been around…
I guess growing up, it’s not really ladylike for a woman to sleep with a lot of men. But as far as a man it’s almost like you’re looked at as a player or fathers kind of look at you like, that’s my boy! Versus a woman shes looked at like a whore if shes had a lot of partners like that. It’s just a double standard. Any woman that I’m really feeling for real for real, I need to know what she’s been doing before I really put all my juices and berries into her as far as the relationship.

Now, if I’m just having sex with her then it doesn’t really matter because it’s just a sexual thing. But as far as being in a real relationship with a woman and she’s had a lot of partners, I really can’t feel good about that because I wouldn’t really want to take her anywhere and everybody in the club up in there hit my girl. That’s not a good look.

A high number for a woman depends on how old she is. The older she get of course your numbers are gonna go up. A woman that’s say 25 years old, if she’s had like 20 or 25 that’s a lot. That’s real high.

Beyonce had an amazing escape when she opened her car door – and it got ripped off its hinges by a London taxi. The singer, with hubby Jay-Z, was about to step out of the motor and pop into Harrods for a quick shop on Tuesday. The black cab missed her by inches as it collided with the singer’s Merc.

A source said: “It was terrifying to watch. It all happened so quickly, the taxi came out of nowhere. She seemed very shaken and was lucky to be alive. A couple of seconds difference and God knows what could have happened.”

Beyonce had set out for a romantic evening with her rap star fella. They were heading to swanky Japanese restaurant Zuma in Knightsbridge for dinner when she decided she wanted to call at the top people’s shop.But the impromptu shopping trip never got started after the prang between the cabbie and the door of Bey’s posh silver S-Class.
Not surprisingly, the motor was left in no fit state to drive. A replacement was sent to pick up the couple and drop them at the restaurant.

Beyonce Knowles is still refusing to speak to her dad and manager, Matthew Knowles, after he fathered a love child with a woman 20 years his junior — and suits at her record label fear the rift could damage her career. The superstar singer was horrified when it was alleged last year that Matthew had an 18-month affair with 38-year-old Alexsandra Wright and DNA tests confirmed he’d fathered her son, Nixon, while still married to Beyoncé’s mother, Tina Knowles.

Now, sources tell Page Six that relations between Beyoncé, who is very close to her mom, and her father have reached such a low point that executives at her label, Columbia, are worried.But one music industry insider said, “Beyoncé was horrified to find out her dad cheated on her mom. She always looked up to him, and she is very close to her mom, so this has hit her really hard. She is refusing to speak to him, which is making things difficult where it comes to managing her career. Some people at Columbia now think it would be better to move him aside.”

Former “Scrubs” actress Wright filed a paternity suit last October, and a DNA test taken in March confirmed that Knowles was the father of Nixon, who was born on Feb. 4. A judge ordered him to pay $8,200 a month in child support on an interim basis. Wright, a Los Angeles-based branding executive, claimed that Matthew Knowles, who was married to Tina for 29 years, had an affair with her for a year and a half. Tina filed for divorce last November. Wright and Matthew are now in the final stages of negotiating a child support settlement.

Beyonce’s Heat launched on Feb. 10, putting her on a long list of celebrities who have their own fragrances, including Mariah Carey, Sean “Jean” Combs, Kimora Lee and Halle Berry. Heat was the No. 1 selling fragrance at its launch, generating about $3 million in sales within its first month in Macy’s stores, according to Coty Inc., the company that produces Beyonce’s perfume.

Coty is the largest fragrance house in the world with an estimated $4 billion in annual global sales, and creates perfumes and colognes for many of the fashion industry’s top names, such as Calvin Klein and Kenneth Cole. The company also has a roster of celebrity fragrances that include Berry, Jennifer Lopez, Phat Farm and Baby Phat.

Representatives from Coty could not be reached to discuss terms of Beyonce’s deal, and financial details were not discussed when it was announced in September. However, industry experts believe the megastar and the perfumer both stand to gain significantly from Heat and any future perfumes that Beyonce may launch through Coty.

“The offering from Beyonce was one of the most anticipated offerings for a celebrity fragrance and also carried a record-breaking promotional price tag to match,” said Matthew Melver, a Miami-based beauty industry consultant who has previously worked for Coty Prestige, Estee Lauder and Parlux Fragrances. “It got off to a great start.”

The fragrance industry is estimated to generate between $25 and $30 billion annually. Sales of prestige fragrances—those sold in U.S. department stores—totaled $2.48 billion in 2009, according to a release from the market research firm NPD Group Inc.

Melver says there is no typical deal for celebrity fragrances, but many stars receive royalties of 2 to 4 percent of the sold product. That royalty income, which is usually paid six to nine months after the fragrance’s launch, is often tied to promotional requirements for the star, such as doing media interviews and talk shows.

The amount of net income generated by Heat may be tempered by costs of promoting a perfume associated with one of the hottest names in the entertainment industry, Melver says. “With the yoke of one of the largest promotion budgets in history around it’s neck, we will see if the gamble paid off or just broke even.”

Sales from Heat will need to meet or exceed the product’s costs within the next year, or Coty may delay or choose not release future Beyonce-related fragrances. Melver says there’s reason to be optimistic that Heat will perform just fine since Beyonce is adored by her fans and the fragrance industry is approaching its fourth quarter, when perfume sales tend to peak.

Philip Markowitz alleges his peace and quiet was shattered the morning of March 26, 2010, when the film crew “invaded his neighborhood” … waking him out of a peaceful sleep at 7 AM.

Markowitz says during the morning … every time he tried leaving his house the crew was blocking his driveway. He went in and out and in and out …. and each time, he says, there was some obstacle in his way.

Now it gets really good. Markowitz says he “missed several business calls while arguing calmly in his driveway.” By 11:30 AM, “He demanded compensation for the trespass on his property and the inconvenience and delay he had already suffered.”

In fact, Markowitz says he told someone from the crew that he’s gotten upwards of $10,000 for the use of his property, but says he was told he couldn’t be paid this time because it was a “low budget film shoot.”
