Out of context, this news sounds like a Zoey 101 reboot, in which an all-grown-up Zoey Brooks learns that she’s been assigned the job as a money manager for her long-lost popstar sister, and is forced to take night school classes in Accounting 101. In reality, it’s kind of the same, except Jamie Lynn Spears is well aware of Britney Spears and the management mess she’s been dealing with.
Not long after it was revealed that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle high-tailed it out of Los Angeles and moved to Montecito, CA, people started getting suspicious about who paid for their new mansion, considering they’re still making payments on their last home. The Daily Mail claimed that Prince Harry’s dad Prince Charles covered a portion of the $14.6 million price tag. But a source who recently spoke to Us Weekly says Harry and Meghan paid for it entirely on their own with no help from Papa Chuck.
A big part of Prince Harry’s personal brand, along with having red hair, and calling out bullshit, is his commitment to charity work. But the anti-Monarchy group Republic has recently side-eyed Harry’s reputation as a charitable hottie. According to them, Harry only cares about lining his own pockets! However, Harry’s rep says that’s just not true.
Two weeks ago, another one of Harvey Weinstein’s many lawsuits was wrapped up into a tidy, yet gross, package, when the New York Attorney General’s office announced that an $18,875,000 compensation fund would be set up for nine of Harvey’s victims. Harvey’s settlements are being covered by his insurance company. But it’s now being reported that US District Court Judge Alvin Hellerstein released a statement today saying that he’s not going to approve that settlement, so someone better come up with a Plan B.
Johnny Depp’s libel suit continues, and thankfully we’re getting a much-needed break from the mental image of spite poo and blood memos,. The bad news is, we’ve still got violence and a little bit of poop, combined with some missing money, and the phantom smell of stale hair (does anyone else experience that phenomenon when they look at a picture of him? Just me?).
Johnny appeared in London’s High Court today and delivered more testimony against The Sun. Johnny’s suing The Sun for calling him a “wife beater” in a headline, which was prompted by accusations made by his former wife Amber Heard. Johnny’s plan as the case’s plaintiff has so far been to paint Amber as the abusive one in their relationship. Johnny claimed today that only a couple hours after he discovered how badly his bank account was hurting, Amber allegedly tried to bring the pain to his face, courtesy of an alleged “haymaker.”
Kanye West And Jared Kushner’s Family Both Got Several Millions In Paycheck Protection Program Loans
A few days ago, apropos of nothing besides the obvious (an aggressively throbbing ego), Kanye West announced that he’s running for President of the United States this year, even though he hasn’t filed the paperwork yet. But Kanye running made perfect sense to me, considering his love for both dumb, impulsive decisions and misguided political apparel. But now it looks like Kanye has also picked up some shady business tips from his favorite president and some of his in-laws.
Yesterday, the Treasury Department and Small Business Administration disclosed the names of every business that got $150,000 or more through the Paycheck Protection Program, the Trump administration’s COVID-19 stimulus program. And wouldn’t you know it, but apparently everyone’s favorite Christian Genius Billionaire – accent on the billionaire – reportedly accepted between $2 and $5 million. And Jared Kushner, son-in-law of Trump, allegedly made sure his family nabbed between $1 and $2 million for a school connected to their charity.
