Producer Scott Storch and porn star Tera Patrick get a little closer in Las Vegas.

Is the purpose of your travel business or personal? If you're heavyweight hip-hop music producer Scott Storch, the answer is both.
Hip-hop impresario Scott Storch, left, pictured with David Weintraub, is rumored to be have his eye on Vegas for his DJ debut.
Storch blew into town Friday night from LA, where he is currently working on Dr. Dre's upcoming album; there was a variety of collaborations on his Vegas itinerary, first and foremost being to canoodle with porn star Tera Patrick at N9NE Steakhouse. The pair — now rumored to be dating — flirted, ate and drank late into the night with a small party that included producer/reality TV star David Weintraub (Sons of Hollywood). According to his website, Weintraub is currently producing a documentary on Storch called Bosslife.
Saturday, Storch attended a birthday dinner thrown by Nicky Hilton for her boyfriend, Hollywood agent David Katzenberg (son of DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg), at Rare 120 at the Hard Rock. Following dinner, Storch and Patrick returned to the Palms for cocktails at Ghostbar (tequila shots all around), before Storch finally got down to business.
At Rain, Storch visited on stage with Perfecto Vegas resident DJ/producer Paul Oakenfold. Insiders close to Storch say that the producer is in talks with a small handful of high-profile nightlife companies to make his own DJ debut this summer, potentially at a high-end party pool.
It also is rumored that Storch and Oakenfold are in talks to go into the Studio at the Palms together. But what would be laid down? With these two, the possibilities are endless: Perhaps Oakie will produce Storch's debut artist album or single. Or maybe it is Storch who will produce the next Oakenfold oeuvre. Or maybe they will both produce... Storch is the man behind more than 50 No. 1 hits from the likes of Beyoncé, Christina Aguilera, 50 Cent, Snoop Dogg, Pink, and Jay Z, so that could be one hell of a mix tape!
Later that evening, Tera Patrick stopped by Rain to once again join Storch at his table. Looks like romance is on Storch's agenda, too.
Rain Nightclub (Editor's note: Rain is currently closed but is available for private events.) If The Palms is Las Vegas nightlife’s powerhouse hotel, then Rain is its star quarterback. Home to International DJ Paul Oakenfold and his first US residency in ten years, Saturday nights features the brit DJ and special guests for the Perfecto party. On Fridays, Music is the Currency hosts guest performers weekly. To enter the large dance club, you walk through a futuristic tunnel leading into the main room where a spectacular lighting show splashes the floor and walls with color. Rain may be best known, however, for its special effects like cascading water, fog and bursts of flame that shoot out from metal frames above the dance floor. The upper levels offer VIP cabanas and ultra-exclusive members-only suites accessed by a biometric thumbprint scanner.
