and now, the singer tells TMZ Sports she KEPT HER CORSAGE as a souvenir!Brandy was walkin’ into the London Hotel in NYC yesterday when we took her all the way back to 1996 …when 17-year-old Kobe (who was about to be drafted into the NBA) brought Brandy to prom … Brandy tells us she had an “amazing” time with Kobe — and was especially grateful because she wasn’t in a “regular” school and didn’t have a prom of her own.

Can a girl have some fun at a jayz/kanye concert w/out being linked 2 a breakup?

I AM NOT, NEVER HAVE BEEN, INVOVLED W/KOBE IN ANY WAY.

It’s been 18 years since a young Kobe Bryant took Brandy to his high school prom …

Everyone wants to know who the mistresses are that Kobe’s been cheating with since his wife filed for divorce, but Sanaa Lathan says don’t look at her.

The actress jumped on Twitter this afternoon to shut down speculation that “She touched his face” and “was shaking her a** in front of him to the music,” during a Watch the Throne Concert at Staples Center in LA Tuesday.

NY Daily News reported: According to our source, Lathan, 40, who’s the voice of Donna Tubbs on “The Cleveland Show,” came to the concert with a girlfriend, and Bryant, 33, who was with teammate Matt Barnes and a bodyguard, were initially seated on adjacent couches in the club-like friends-and-family VIP area behind center stage.

Kim Kardashian , Beyoncé and Jake Gyllenhaal were among the other celebs in attendance.

Eventually, Lathan and Bryant ended up standing next to each other, and that’s when our source said the actress, who was drinking champagne, became progressively more flirtatious with the NBA star, who stuck to soft drinks, presumably because he’s in training.

Lathan, attired in a Hot white-chiffon dress over what appeared to be a black bra, was “whispering in his ear” and at one point stroked the ballplayer’s face.
