What’s Poppin: News on Kelly Rowland, Alicia Keys, Joss Stone, Jermaine Dupri

Former Destiny’s Child R&B star Kelly Rowland has reportedly found love in the arms of English soccer ace Kieran Richardson. Rowland met the Manchester United star backstage at one of her London gigs and they have been dating for the last two months, according to British newspaper The Sun. A source says, “Things are starting to heat up.” Rowland is no stranger to athletes – she was previously engaged to Dallas Cowboys football player Roy Williams. R&B superstar Alicia Keys, Oprah Winfrey, Jay-Z, Chris Rock, Don Cheadle and Barack Obama are among the celebrities who took part in the unprecedented cover spread, shot by world renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz to capture what resembles a game of telephone among international icons discussing the crisis in Africa. Joss Stone has joined the lineup for the 2007 Bumbershoot festival, to be held Sept. 1-3 throughout the Seattle Center. The 20-year-old performer, who began a tour of the US and Canada in April, will wrap things up mid-month following gigs in Montreal; New York City; Boston; Vienna, VA; and Fort Lauderdale, FL. She’ll make her way back to the US in August with shows booked so far in Utah, Colorado, Oregon, Nevada, Texas and Illinois. Details are listed below. Music producer Jermaine Dupri was involved in a car accident in New York that sent his driver to the hospital. The collision took place shortly after midnight Thursday morning as Dupri was being driven in his Cadillac Escalade. AllHipHop reports that a woman ignored a stop light on the corner of 49th Street and Park Avenue and crashed into the SUV. The Escalade was completely totaled, reports the website.
