I’m sure you’re absolutely shocked that a situation involving semi-professional disaster Courtney Love has gotten messy. But if you can believe it, she’s not even the messiest part of this story; that honor goes to the one and only Sam Lutfi.
Last week it was reported that Frances Bean was fighting with her soon-to-be ex-husband Isaiah Silva over a guitar that was used by Kurt Cobain during Nirvana’s MTV Unplugged performance. Isaiah claims the guitar – which is estimated to be worth several million dollars – was a wedding gift from Frances to him. Frances claims she never gave it to him as a gift, and she wants it back. A judge will ultimately decide who gets the guitar, but Courtney Love’s good friend Sam Lutfi is doing everything he can to fix it in Frances’ favor.
When we last left the drama going down in the quad at Famous Millionaire High, Calvin Harris sharted up a whine stream on Twitter after the story came out that Taylor Swift wrote the lyrics to “This Is What You Came For.” Taylor’s people also let us know through TMZ that she came up with the melody too, thankyouverymuch.
In his Twitter dragging of Taylor, Calvin mentioned how he’s not going to let her bury him the way that she tried to bury Katy Perry. Katy Perry piped in on Twitter. You know, Calvin Harris is too old for this. Taylor Swift is too old for this. Katy Perry is too old for this. And we’re all too old for this, but who cares! I’m still eating up the stupid drama as if it was smeared all over Prince Hot Ginge’s peen.
Bradley Cooper’s beard sure does look prickly. The one on his face looks pretty scratchy too. I know, I know. It’s Monday, don’t strain yourself. I’ll GONG myself for that one.
Just a few days ago, Bradley Cooper and his piece of the moment Irina Shayk were acting all lovey and shit at Wimbledon, but when they went back for yesterday’s men’s finals, they may have given us a different story. During the match, the camera panned to the audience and caught Irina making the same face I made when I read that B. Coop cast Lady GaGa in A Star Is Born. It also looked like he threw her a smug look that said, “Really, you’re going to do this now? I should dock your pay for this shit.” If you haven’t already, watch it and get into it:
Part of me watches that and sees nothing. It looks like Irina is bored and picking the gooey sleepies out of her eye while B. Coop talks with the person sitting next to her. The other part me (aka the one who lives to make messy drama out of nothing) sees a fight!
For what it’s worth (read: not much), a “source” tells E! News that B. Coop and Irina were totally not fighting: “They were not fighting. Everything is fine”
And I bet that when Taylor Swift’s PR team watched that video, they all screamed “Motherfucking shit!” at the same time before crossing off “get into a fight at a high profile sporting event” from their list of “Ways To Set Up The Split.”
Yesterday it was being reported that Calvin Harris had pulled out his emotions journal and written a song slapping back at Taylor Swift for maybe-cheating on him with Tom Hiddleston. I guess Calvin Harris really wanted to be the Taylor Swift of this bland love triangle. Calvin released said song, “Olé“, earlier today on iTunes (which you can listen to here). As it turns out, it might not be the epic clap-back people thought it was.
A Taylor Swift source, which may or may not be one of Taylor Swift’s cats doing some damage control for their human while she’s off living that photo op life, tells UsWeekly that there’s no way it’s about Tom Hiddleston. Originally the rumor was that “Olé” was sung from Tom’s perspective. But the source says that’s just an assumption, and that people are only doing that to “get attention for a song.” Getting attention for a song by letting people assume it’s about someone specific? Taylor would know nothing about that.
However, this might not be a case of Taylor sticking her fingers in her ears and going “Lalalala that song isn’t about me.” A source from Calvin’s side confirms that “Olé” was recorded by John Newman months ago. Okay, but how many months? Two months?
If “Olé” didn’t open with the words “Low-key“, maybe it might not have been so obvious. Without that maybe-reference to Loki, it’s pretty much just a song about some girl who is sneaking around on her boyfriend. So maybe it isn’t actually about Taylor Swift? I guess we’ll just have to wait for the music video. “Sources” can deny it’s about Taylor and Tom all they want. But if that music video features two people in matching navy jackets posing hard for the cameras, then Calvin is so busted.
Speaking of matching, here’s Land’s End Barbie and Ken arriving in Gold Coast, Australia today. They’re supposedly there so Tom can start filming Thor: Ragnarok. I’m sure it’s only a matter of time before they’re “caught” doing something totally subtle, like riding hand-in-hand down the beach on the back of a kangaroo or something.
I guess it was really only a matter of time before Ciara dragged her fiancé Russell Wilson into her very messy million-dollar defamation lawsuit against the father of her 2-year-old son and her former fiancé, Future. Once you make plans to get married to someone, you start merging your lives together. And when you’re a famous person, that apparently includes bringing them into your drama.
Two days ago we found out that Lisa Marie Presley had gone ahead and filed for divorce from her off-brand Tom Petty-looking husband of 10 years, Michael Lockwood. At the time, all we really knew was that she cited “irreconcilable differences” and that she wanted full custody of their 7-year-old twin daughters. Well, TMZ thinks they might have solved the mystery of what killed Lisa Marie’s fourth marriage. And it looks like the main culprit is a whole bunch of missing money.
According to Lisa Marie’s lawyer, Ron Litz, when Lisa Marie and Michael first got together, she let him handle all the finances. Uh oh, I can already see where this is going. Michael kept track of all the money, which is included all the cash coming in from Elvis Presley’s estate. When things started heading south in their marriage, Lisa Marie got suspicious of Michael and decided to take a magnifying glass to their financial situation. That’s when she discovered that a whole lot of money was missing, but she couldn’t tell where it all went.
Another discovery she made was a $109,000 American Express bill. Not long after she found out about the bill, AmEx sued her. TMZ doesn’t say why they sued her, but I’m guessing it was probably an overdue bill and they wanted to get paid. Lisa Marie currently has her legal team working on a forensic audit to determine what in the hell Michael spent $109,000 on, as well as where the rest of the money that vanished during their marriage went.
Michael could be in trouble. According to the postnup they signed after they got married, all of Lisa Marie’s Elvis money is hers and hers alone.
Lisa Marie doesn’t have to hire a team of experts to track down where her money went. I can tell you where that money went: HATS. Michael clearly spent all the money on stupid hats, Lisa. And whatever he didn’t spend on hats, he spent on those Stone Temple Steampunk outfits. You’d think Lisa would have figured something was up once she realized her side of the closet was slowly being taken over by his corny rock star clothes. “I don’t really know what you do for a job, but you sure do seem to have a lot of new custom-made leopard print jackets lately.”
I don’t know if Demi Lovato’s New Year’s resolution was to drag every popular female artist from the music industry into as many messy cat fights as possible, but it’s starting to look that way. So far in 2016, Demi has come for Taylor Swift, then Nicki Minaj, then Taylor Swift again. And now she’s starting a fight that includes Mariah Carey, Ariana Grande, and Jennifer Lopez.
“Hahahaha! Bye Becky! Don’t let the door hit your ass on the way out!” is what I like to imagine Beyonce thought when she heard that Rachel Roy bailed. But really, that would require me to suspend my belief that Beyonce’s thoughts consist solely of giving compliments to herself. “Congratulations, Beyonce – you look wonderful tonight.”
Both Beyonce and the woman who seems unable to escape Beyonce’s dramatic gravity pull were both at the CFDA Awards on Monday night in NYC. Yesterday I joked that it was shocking that the Beyhive didn’t completely lose their shit after learning that Beyonce and that husband-humping skank Rachel Roy were at the same event. As it turns out, they technically weren’t there at the same time. Page Six says that once Rachel learned that Beyonce would be making a surprise appearance to collect her Fashion Icon award, she left. Such drama!
Shortly after Rachel arrived, people started whispering on social media that they saw Jay Z and Blue Ivy Carter pulling up to the CFDA Awards, followed by Tina Knowles. That set off a giant emergency siren in Rachel Roy’s head. A source claims she got up from the table she was sitting at, picked up her place card, and left. The source adds that she never came back, and that it was “weird.” However, a friend of Rachel tells Page Six that she had no intention of staying for the whole thing because she had an early-morning flight the next day to L.A. “Of course she did” said everyone who has ever used the I-need-to-be-up-early-for-a-thing excuse to get out of a bad date.
Rachel has denied being the Becky that Beyonce hisses at in “Sorry“, so it’s a little weird that she would respond to Beyonce’s possible arrival like a dog that just heard someone turn on the vacuum. Who knows? Maybe she did actually have an early-morning flight the next day. That might explain why she looked so stiff on the red carpet. I’m no body language expert, but she’s definitely giving me the vibes of someone who is anxious to get home and transfer all her liquids into tiny TSA-approved bottles.
Usually the warm feeling around my heart is the result of eating too many Doritos before noon, but today it was caused by the cuteness that is a picture of a baby leaving an airplane while holding an airplane.
Despite the fact that Future Zahir is only two days away from turning 2, it feels like Ciara and her ex-fiance Future have been dragging him into their drama since the beginning of time. Or at least shortly after the beginning of his time. Three months after Ciara and Future became parents, they split up, then got back together a month later, then split up again. Then Ciara started seeing Russell Wilson and letting him hang out with Baby Future, which pissed Future off enough to publicly slap at Ciara’s parenting skills and accuse her of denying him daddy time. That pissed Ciara off and she slapped him with a $15 million defamation lawsuit. Future responded by counter-suing. Which brings us to yesterday.
According to TMZ, Ciara 1-2 stepped into a courtroom yesterday and asked a judge for sole custody of Baby Future, and I’m pretty sure you can guess the reason why. If you said “Because Ciara accused him of being a crappy dad?“, congratulations, you’ve won a glamorous prize (the plastic bowtie from a Jewel Secrets Ken doll). Future was also in the courtroom yesterday, and his contribution to the conversation was to ask for joint custody. The judge agreed, and decided that Ciara and Future will share joint custody.
Neither Ciara nor Future have said anything about their new custody arrangement, but I’m going to go out on a limb and assume Ciara probably isn’t very happy about it. But she needs to look on the bright side: Baby Future spending more time at daddy’s house means more time to practice walking slowly down the aisle at her wedding. Look, if I was about to marry a dude who asked me to wait until our wedding night for sex, I’d need to get in as much practice as possible not to sprint full-speed down the aisle.
Apparently Ruby Rose has more in common with Justin Bieber than just delicate faces and a love of random tattoos. On Friday, Ruby Rose, from Orange is the New Black, was kicked out of a bar in New Orleans. Ruby Rose was kicked out after she got into a fight with bar staff and assaulted them with french fries.
