Nicole Young Says She Co-Owns The Trademark On Dr. Dre’s Name And Dr. Dre Accused Her Of Embezzlement
Sometimes when two people get married, one of the spouses will take the other’s name which can make things complicated if later that couple should split, especially if the split is acrimonious. What’s less common is when two people get married and one of the spouses co-trademarks the other’s name, which is what Nicole Young claims to be the case in her marriage to Dr. Dre aka Andre Young. According to Page Six, Nicole’s not about to forget about Dre because in addition to asking for $2 million a month in spousal support, she is suing him for “secretly” transferring valuable trademarks, including the name Dr. Dre “as well as his landmark album, ‘The Chronic,’” immediately after kicking her out of their home.
Thanks to some recent pictures that have hit the internet, it looks like that alleged secret marriage situation might not have been the only secret lockdown activity Emma Stone has done during her time stuck inside. Emma might also have a secret pregnancy situation on her hands. I guess it’s not so secret anymore, since those pictures exist. And if a picture is still worth 1000 words, then we’ve got at least a dozen pictures that have an equivalent value of the words, “This might be a baby bump” copy and pasted several thousand times.
Since last night’s Emmys were broadcast remotely, nominees didn’t get the privilege of losing in front of an audience of A-listers. Instead, they Zoomed in from the safety of their homes. And the Emmys got creative with how they’d actually present the awards. Presenters in custom-designed tuxedo hazmat suits were sent to the houses of some nominees. Their job was to stand silently outside holding the nominee’s potential Emmy statue. If you won, hazmat guy would give you your Emmy. If you lost, they would bash you to death with the award in front of your loved ones. Nooo, they’d actually… well, let Ramy star Ramy Youssef, who lost the awards for Best Actor and Best Directing in a Comedy Series to Eugene Levy and the Schitt’s Creek crew, show you firsthand.
2020 has been a hard year for Kim Kardashian, along with roughly 7.594 billion other people on Planet Earth. Not only did Kim say goodbye to her steady reality show check, her husband of six years, Kanye West, went full Kanye. Since June (June!) the prolific genius has managed to squeeze in a very public bipolar-related breakdown, spend $6 million of his own money on a disastrous presidential campaign, double down on his cult, get his ass entangled in a bunch of lawsuits, pee on his Grammy as a fuck you to Universal Music Group owning his music, and shit on his wife, her family, and abortion rights. It’s that last one that’s allegedly sent his wife over the edge. A source told Page Six that once Kanye’s finished the most recent chapter of his summer breakdown, Mrs. Kardashian-West is out the door.
Last night’s Emmys was a Schitt’s storm of epic proportions and I’m not talking about the writing, which, woof. No, I’m making an obvious and lazy pun based on the fact that Schitt’s Creek swept the show, winning in every comedy category of the night. And because of the order in which the categories were presented, the entire first hour of the broadcast was just creator, writer and star Daniel Levy scrambling to decide whether to leave the mask on or take it off each time his show won an Emmy. Which was 9 times! The show set a record for the “most wins in a single season for a comedy” (per The Hollywood Reporter) and almost everybody was happy for them. Everyone that is except Leslie Jones. Yes, it would seem the rather tall lady from SNL does not enjoy gentle Canadian comedy. It’s weird because hating on Schitt’s Creek is like hating on an adorable kitten with markings that make it look like it has Groucho Marx eyebrows. Who could be mad at that?!
It was touch and go for a second, but the Ellen show returned today for its 18th season (“touch and go” might also be used to describe the alleged work history of three of her former producers). Ellen DeGeneres booked it out of her studio in March, to quarantine at home, but she couldn’t isolate herself from all the allegations that she’s an awful, abusive boss who ran a terrible workplace. After some “will they/won’t they” regarding if the show would come back this fall at all, the 18th season of Ellen premiered today and as promised, Ellen addressed the whole situation.
