SINGERSROOM ROUNDS: Wyclef Shot, Rihanna Not Dating Colin, Lil Wayne Goes Limp

Rapper-Singer Wyclef Jean is currently recovering after being shot in the hand on Sunday. According to his spokeswoman Cindy Tanenbaum, Jean was in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, on the eve of the country’s presidential runoff vote, when his vehicle was hit by bullets. Jean, who is “doing well,” was riding inside a vehicle with fellow rapper Busta Rhymes, Jimmy Rosemond and his entourage when the incident happened.

Contrary to the rumors circulating around the web, R&B/pop star Rihanna is not dating actor Colin Farrell. News of the potential new couple have been swirling around for weeks, but it was fueled even more Wednesday night (Mar. 16), when they were both spotted at an Italian restaurant in Los Angeles. But a source tells People magazine that RiRi and Colin enjoyed their meal separately during the outing. “They are not dating. It was absolute coincidence they were at Giorgio Baldi at the same time. Colin was there at a business dinner and Rihanna was across the room,” insisted the source, before adding, “There’s no truth whatsoever to the reports and rumors that they’re dating.”

Rapper Lil Wayne has joined forces with Limp Bizkit for a track on the band’s forthcoming album ‘Gold Cobra,’ their first since reuniting. Wayne, who dabbled in rock music with the release of “Rebirth,” will return to his hip hop roots for the feature. Revealing news of the collaboration on Twitter, frontman Fred Durst writes, “Oh, excuse me, sixteenth song mixed is Ready To Go featuring Lil Wayne! …I love it.” Limp Bizkit’s last album, “Results May Vary”, was released in 2003.

In more Lil Wayne news, the Young Money MC is linked to a police probe after a woman alleged she was sexually assaulted during one of his recording sessions in January (11). The unidentified woman claims she was held against her will and attacked at a house in Canyon Country, California, where Lil Wayne was recording new tracks. The alleged victim, believed to be a catering assistant, alerted authorities and took a rape test at a hospital after the reported incident.
