An Artist Outed LaKeith Stanfield As The Father Of Her Baby Hours After He Announced His Engagement To A Different Woman
The two wolves that live inside LaKeith Stanfield — one an inscrutable arTEEST with a penchant for mystery and intrigue, the other a Hollywood superstar with a taste for the finer things in life; are starting the new year off throwing paws at each other. On New Year’s day, Lakeith announced on Instagram that he’s about to make his girlfriend of five months, self-described “exceptionally blessed,” Spelman/Harvard attending model Kasmere Trice, a “#priceyiceyWIFEY.” Hours later, visual artist Tylor Hurd announced that she’s stepping into 2023 NOT “being someone’s secret family,” and shared that Lakeith is the father of her child, a baby girl named Apollo. Apparently, while Lakeith’s respectability wolf was off traipsing across the globe eating rare steaks and flashing diamonds, his starving artist wolf was eating garbage out of the dumpster at a family fun center and slinking off into the night before someone could throw a shoe at him. Now they’re throwing shoes at BOTH HIS WOLVES!
LaKeith Stanfield is nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his role in Judas and the Black Messiah. Supporting Actor. Even though he’s arguably the lead of the film. This baffled everyone, including Lakeith, who took to social media to say, “I’m confused too but fuck it lmao.” That post got deleted. And now he’s back at it again!
LaKeith posted a screenshot of a Deadline article about how the Oscars are thinking about going back on their No Zoom Allowed! policy. His caption? ‘No one cares lmao.” In the comment section, he added, “Real stuff is happening. Who cares about awards.’ Ha! He’s not wrong! It didn’t last long; obviously, Lakeith’s agent or manager or his own later-brain urged him to take it down, so he did. But deleted social media posts are like Rasputin. It’s nearly impossible to kill them.
One of the biggest questions surrounding this year’s Academy Awards, besides, “How much of a potential mess will this in-person ceremony be?“, is “Who does the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences think is the star of Judas and the Black Messiah?” Because both Lakeith Stanfield and Daniel Kaluuya were nominated in the Best Supporting Actor category on Monday morning. And after the initial excitement wore off, Lakeith Stanfield stood there and shook his head over the confusion of him ending up in the Best Supporting Actor category.
I doubt the film world will ever again reach the glorious heights achieved by the cinematic masterpiece that is Clue. And that was based on a board game! But a new star-studded murder mystery movie called Knives Out looks like it might, at the very least, be a fun diversion based on Daniel Craig’s sweet tea infused Tennessee Williams meets Vampire Bill accent. According to The Verge, Daniel plays Detective Benoit Blanc in the film director Rain Johnson describes as a tribute to Agatha Christie.
There was lots of glamour, color, and levity on display on the red carpet for last night’s Critics’ Choice Awards. And I’m going to go ahead and give all the credit to Judith Light. Judith set the tone, and everybody else did their level best to match her energy. There was probably a panicked buzz of “Judith Light, Judith Light, Judith Light” spreading among Hollywood stylists when they realized she was going to be there, forcing everyone to step up their game. Nobody quite got there, but they tried and that’s what counts. Ultimately, posing through Christian Siriano-made polka dots the size of dinner plates, Judith put all the kids on blast. If Judith wanted to be a real pal, she should have given a posing tutorial before the red carpet. Some people could really have used the help (see after the cut).
There were a lot of faces being pulled in the audience at last night’s Emmy Awards ceremony. Most of the cringing and eye rolling caught on camera (Merritt Wever staring into the camera with the dead eyes of a bored teen, Chrissy Teigen ducking out of way) appeared to be in reaction to Colin Jost’s invisible lips and Michael Che’s invisible charm. But one member of the audience looked like he was having the time of his life. In a surprise appearance, the legendary Teddy Perkins somehow managed to leave his palatial home in Atlanta and fly halfway across the country to attend the ceremony! I didn’t even realize he was still alive. I thought he had choked on a globule of ostrich egg.
