Poor Elon Musk. No, literally, POOR Elon Musk because he can no longer claim the title of Forbes’ richest person in the world since he has been dethroned! I would say this is just a bit of karma for his continuous efforts to murder Twitter before the end of the year. But let’s not begin checking our pockets for loose change to throw at his elongated face just yet. Because although he may not be number one anymore, he’s still every kind of rich by securing the number two spot with a paltry $181.3 billion.
Marquise Jackson, 50 Cent’s Oldest Son, Offered To Pay One Month Of What His Absent Dad Paid In Child Support To Spend 24 Hours Together
Over the span of Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson’s career, his most remarkable trait has been his undying love for hate. Whether it’s Vivica A. Fox, Ja Rule, or Madonna; 50 never misses an opportunity to profess his contempt. And in perhaps Fitty’s most impressive and challenging prolonged display of hate: one of his own spawns, who he wishes would get hit by a bus. 50 and his oldest son, Marquise Jackson, have been passing their repugnance for each other back and forth for years; but this week, Marquise had a proposition for his estranged dad: he’d pay him $6,700 (which is what 50 paid in child support for Marquise) to spend 24 hours of quality time with him.
Scalpers Are Already Trying To Cash In On Lea Michele In “Funny Girl,” And Beanie Feldstein Might Have Been Blindsided By The News
It’s been all of three seconds since Lea Michele landed the role of a lifetime: that of a real-life Barbra Streisand impersonator at the heart of some ambition-based musical theater drama. Or rather, the replacement role of Fanny Brice in the Broadway revival of Funny Girl, left vacant by Beanie Feldstein, who originally chose to leave the show in September, but then suddenly changed her mind and wanted out as soon as humanly possible (hmmm…I wonder why??). Lea replacing Beanie has turned into Broadway gossip Christmas, and some scalpers are doing the absolute most to profit off of the situation, including driving up ticket prices into the four-figure mark. Oh, and there are more rumors about Lea’s little takeover, which is great news if you wanted to guess exactly when producers handed her the part.
Last week, Elon Musk decided that he didn’t actually want to buy Twitter for $44 billion and released a statement informing everyone that Twitter had misled him, and therefore he was backing out of the deal. That’s not good, considering Elon and Twitter signed a contract with Elon agreeing his intention to follow through with the purchase, and Twitter let it be known several times that they’d happily summon their team of lawyers on Elon, should he metaphorically skip town. So no one should be surprised that Twitter is lawyering up. But according to Elon’s recent Twitter activity, he’s not bothered in the least. In fact, he’s casually making ha-ha-has and tee-hee-hees about the whole mess.
UPDATE: Yup, as expected, Stunt Queen Elon has let Twitter know in a letter from his lawyer that he’s terminating the deal, and it’s probably going to get legally messy. via Market Watch:
“Mr. Musk is terminating the Merger Agreement because Twitter is in material breach of multiple provisions of that Agreement, appears to have made false and misleading representations upon which Mr. Musk relied when entering into the Merger Agreement, and is likely to suffer a Company Material Adverse Effect.”
Below is the original post:
Well, I’m starting to think that Elon Musk won’t end up being Twitter’s official cringe-based overlord after all (I really shouldn’t have pre-ordered those 200 t-shirts to sell out of my car). We’ve known for a while that Elon has been stalling on his $44 billion purchase of Twitter since he made a deal with them in April. Since then, Elon has been pulling some “Whoops, I must have left my wallet in the car!” shenanigans, by way of accusing Twitter of not being totally forthcoming about how many Twitter users are spam bots. And by all accounts, it sounds like Elon might be changing his wallet-in-the-car story to just straight-up dine-and-dashing.
If somebody offered me a briefcase full of cash, I’d likely shout the words, “Jackpot!” while little cartoon dollar signs replaced my eyeballs. That’s because I’ve never held more than 5 bills in my hand before. But, that also means I’m deeply skeptical of free money, and would likely turn the cash-filled briefcase down, for fear of some kind of fucked up Twilight Zone-ian twist of fate, or that the money was cursed, or that I was becoming the unwilling patsy in some kind of money laundering scheme. I guess being the first in line for the British throne blinds a person from those kind of suspicious cash-based realities. Because according to a report published by The Sunday Times, when Prince Charles was offered a briefcase full of cash from a Qatari politician, he just accepted it like it was a cream-covered scone at tea time.
