Dennis Rodman was seen holding court Wednesday night at the bar at Joe's Stone Crab, where our source tells us he was "slapping everyone on their back as hard as he could, screaming in a loud voice, totally wasted." He then walked over to the host stand to ask for a table and "made a giant scene," causing a staffer to pull him aside, quietly telling him he'd not be seated. After that, not even a North Korean dictator could command the beleaguered baller a table as he was overheard telling his group--a male friend and his parents--they'd have to leave and go to Prime 112 instead, saying he can always get a table there. Police quietly approached and Rodman was overheard apologizing, saying he understood, whispering to the cop that he was "very sorry and respected the decision to kick him out." Was quite the scene, says our source, who says "he looked truly remorseful." Meanwhile, over at Prime 112, Rodman ended up happily nestled at an outdoor table on the restaurant's terrace and, at one point, smoking a cigar inside. "He's such a mess," said our Prime mole. And all was well again in his world. Toto, I have a feeling we're not in Pyongyang anymore.

You'd think the leakage of Kanye West's Yeezus today was the second coming of, well, never mind. But for LIV's David Grutman, it kind of is. You see, West's single "On Sight," produced by Daft Punk, name checks the Grand Poohbah of clubland at the 1:40 mark, saying something to the effect of "Took her to the bleau, she tried to sip the fountain, that's when David Grutman kicked her out. But I got her back in and put my di*k in her mouth." With such deeply profound lyrics, he's not the Montell Michael Jordan of music, he's the Shakespeare of music. Lord, what fools these mortals be!
We asked Grutman his thoughts on joining the ranks of Kathie Lee Gifford, Tom Cruise, Jennifer Aniston, John Travolta and Jake Gyllenhaal, all whose names Yeezus has previously dropped in his songs, to which he replied, "It's pretty fu**ing sick. It doesn't hurt that it's the first single off the much anticipated album and that those Daft Punk guys produced the song. Pretty special." Not nearly as special as the not so mystery woman to whom West refers. When we asked Grutman if West was referring to his baby mama, who, along with her sisterly klique and their assorted appendages, has spent many a night at LIV, he said, "I have no idea." Oh, he does. He's just preoccupied. After all, Yeezus just took his name in vain.
