Party people! Several celebs stepped out to party with New Edition singer Johnny Gill to celebrate his milestone birthday. Come inside to see the party flicks….
Several of Johnny’s celeb friends stepped out for the “50 Shades of Johnny” themed bash held at a private Bel-Air mansion. Johnny’s longtime friend Nicole Murphy (who’s ex-husband Eddie Murphy is Johnny’s bestie), was on the scene for the festivities. You’ll recall, Nicole starred as Johnny’s on-screen love interest in his video “Behind Closed Doors" in 2014.
“Empire”star/rapper Bryshere “Yazz” Gray, who’s gearing up to star as Michael Bivins in the New Edition biopic, and New Edition singer Ricky Bell also came out to wish the birthday boy a Happy Birthday. Yazz recently cut his hair to transform into Michael for the miniseries and he's currently filming in L.A. along with the cast.
The Georgia peaches were in the building! “Real Housewives of Atlanta” stars Cynthia Bailey and NeNe Leakes stepped out to sip on some bubbly and party the night away. Work that jumpsuit Cynthia.
Funnyman Cedric The Entertainer is a longtime friend of Johnny's, so of course he was there to celebrate.
A reunion went down during the shindig. New Edition members Ron Devoe, Michael Bevins and Ricky Bell served up nostalgia with their photo-op. Notably missing? Bobby Brown.
R&B crooner Luke James (who also stars in the New Edition biopic), legendary singer-songwriter Smokey Robinson and LTD singer Jeffrey Osborne were all smiles during the party.
Why so gorgeous Nicole?
Other guests included acctress Jill Marie Jones, legendary artist Debbie Allen, actress Sheryl Lee Ralph, former "Hollywood Exes" star Sheree Fletcher and entertainment correspondent Nichelle Turner came out for the fun:
Looking good ladies!
Johnny took center stage to perform his hit track "My My My" for his guests and he didn't miss a beat.
Johnny wasn't the only one rocking the stage. Smokey, Jeffrey and singer Kenny Lattimore hopped on the mic to serenade NeNe and Cynthia. Fun times.
