    Kanye West obsessed with Kim Kardashian?

    Kanye West is pressed to get in good with Kim Kardashian! Us Weekly reports that the real reason Kim was front and center for Kanye’s show at Paris Fashion Week was because she got a very personal (and persistent) invite.

    "She flew in just to see him," a source revealed. "Kanye begged her to come."

    And Kanye doesn’t just have a huge crush on Kim, insiders claim that he dreams of making her his wife…despite her recent infamously failed marriage to Kris Humphries.

    "Kanye is obsessed with Kim and would marry her," the tipster said. "To have Kanye charming her feels good. Guys are afraid to get near her with all the drama, and here’s a guy who’s actively pursuing her."

    Melanie Fiona splits from Adam Rodriguez

    Melanie Fiona is back on the market after splitting from "CSI: Miami" hunk Adam Rodriguez.

    Glossing over the fact that we weren’t aware that Melanie and Adam were an item, the New York Post reports that the split was amicable.

    “They kept their relationship under wraps. They’d avoided attending events together or even being photographed when possible," Adam’s rep told the Post.  "Adam still cares about her."

    It’s not clear how long Adam and Melanie were officially together, but Adam’s camp said that Melanie’s songs about love gone wrong (i.e. "4 AM" and "Wrong Side of Love") are not about him.

    “Adam knows about all of those songs, but they were written months ago—they were very happy together," the rep said.
