It looks like all that begging Robin Thicke has been doing to get Paula Patton back hasn’t done the crooner a bit of good. The estranged couple have put their home above Hollywood’s Sunset Strip up for sale with an asking price of $2.98 million. The former teenage sweethearts have officially split up after 20 years of coupledom and nearly a decade after marriage.

The Bird Street residence was originally purchased by Thicke’s father, Alan, in early 1990 for $910,000 and deeded over to the younger Thicke right about the time he and Patton made their way down the aisle. One of the house’s bedrooms on the upper level is set up as a music studio, and the master bedroom suite occupies the entire lower level, The house also has a swimming pool and separate spa.

Dwayne Johnson is a beast. The Rock posted his protein-packed “Hercules” diet to instagram, which consists of seven meals a day, including 14 eggs and three pounds of meat. Let’s just say we’re not complaining, because that extra 20 pounds of muscle sure looks good on the battlefield!

“Hercules” opens in theaters nationwide Friday, July 25.

Despite all the rumors about Jay Z and Beyonce having marital problems, according to People magazine, after bringing their “On the Run” tour to the Superdome in New Orleans July 20, the two spent their day off indulging in some quality time with their family in the Big Easy.

The report says Bey and Jay were spotted looking cute and cozy and enjoying each other’s company.

Percy “Master P” Miller is currently casting “The Ice Cream Man,” a biopic about himself. The film’s title “The Ice Cream Man” is taken from the title of his platinum-certified 1996 album by the same name, which gave us the hit single “Bout it, Bout It.”
