So long, Donald? Child's Play rocker and model together again

December 31, 1990|By Nestor Aparicio | Nestor Aparicio,Evening Sun Staff

The soap opera saga of the rock star, the model and Donald Trump took another turn over the weekend.

Model Rowanne Brewer -- who had been seen in previous weeks at the side of Trump -- was at Hammerjacks Saturday night with her longtime beau, Baltimore rocker Brian Jack, lead singer of the popular local band Child's Play.

The couple had returned from a Christmas visit to her family's home in North Carolina. Because of that visit, Jack, whose real name is Brian Giacubeno, missed four of the band's performances last week, causing Child's Play to cancel three of the dates and leaving a scheduled New Year's Eve performance Hammerjacks in limbo. That concert will now take place as planned.

Giacubeno was on hand last night for the band's concert at Scandals in Ocean City. And the band's appearance tonight at the 1,500-person capacity Hammerjacks is expected to be its biggest audience since Child's Play formed six years ago.

When Giacubeno failed to appear for a performance at the Bayou in Washington last Wednesday, band members John Allen, Nicky Kay and Idzi, as well as Child's Play manager Jack Dean were angered. Speculation was that Giacubeno and Brewer were trying to sort out their relationship. Brewer, the 1988 Miss Maryland USA, who appears in the February 1991 Sport magazine swimsuit issue, is expected to accompany Giacubeno to the Hammerjacks show tonight.

Hammerjacks owner Louis Principio talked with the couple Saturday night at the club, and said that Giacubeno promised "the biggest and best show in Child's Play's history," with Brewer by his side.

The band, which has a recording contract with Chrysalis Records and one album, "Rat Race," is also scheduled to perform an acoustic show at Max's On Broadway Wednesday.
