Bobbi Kristina Brown has been in a coma since late January and it’s a condition she won’t likely come out of, well, ever. She’s currently in hospice care as her family tries to come to terms with her final date, but the vultures have already started to swarm. You see, BK’s being sued over a January car accident in which a man claims he sustained “serious injuries” which entitle him to a payout. Nick Gordon, is that you in disguise?
According to a lawsuit filed by Russell J. Eckerman and obtained by PEOPLE, the accident occurred “on or about” Jan. 27. The papers claim Bobbi Kristina was “traveling at an imprudent speed for conditions and was following too closely and improperly attempted to change lanes in order to avoid the vehicle stopping in front of her.”
Bobbi Kristina then allegedly lost control of the 2005 Jeep Liberty she was driving, crossed the center line and collided with Eckerman’s Ford Taurus.
Eckerman claims he sustained “significant injuries” from the crash, including facial, spinal and skull fractures, a laceration on his scalp and a left wrist sprain that landed him in the hospital where he was placed in a medically induced coma and on a ventilator.
According to the papers, he underwent several procedures and his medical bills exceeded $732,610.22.
If this is indeed true and the man did sustain these injuries and it was BK’s fault, then I do agree her estate should have to pay the medical bills. But the whole thing just seems a little fishy to me. Perhaps it’s just because it’s such a delicate situation given that BK will never be able to give her own version of events or even have her say in this, but it just strikes me as really awful for everyone involved.
I guess I’m not all that shocked to hear that the whole “Paris Hilton thought she was going to die on a plane crash but it was all a prank for an Egyptian TV show” thing was a total scam. I did have a very quick flash of, “LOL, yeah right” when watching it, but I utilized some suspension of disbelief and went for it, because the idea of Paris Hilton shitting herself like that on national TV was too delicious to resist. Unfortunately, it was also too good to be true, because she knew about it all along, according to a document obtained by TMZ from the production company behind the show.
Turns out Paris wasn’t their first choice. The company sent the offer to the reps of other American celebs back in March, offering them big money to participate in the prank.
The document states, “We will act as if something is going wrong and ask all passengers to jump off the plane!!! Of course everyone will panic, we’ll be having skydivers in disguise with us on board.”
The doc goes on, “We will monitor the funny reactions from our celebrity guest when they fear jumping off the plane.”
And the document even mentions the stunt has the blessing of Dubai authorities … “Dubai official authorities are monitoring this show and providing us with security. If you want to make sure, you can contact the office of crown prince of Dubai, his majesty Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum. He himself will be supervising the progress of the project.”
Sources say the production company offered a huge amount of money to a willing celeb … in the million dollar range.
Ugh, I never thought I’d say this, but this kind of bullshit makes me miss Punk’d. What’s fun about set-up pranks? Honestly, they didn’t even keep the secret for very long, so what on earth could possibly be the point? BOO!
Technically, I was going to post Rihanna‘s “Bitch Better Have My Money” video yesterday, since it came out at midnight on Wednesday night, but I didn’t even get a chance to watch it until last night, so here we are. Honestly, I don’t even know where to begin and what to say about it at all, but RiRi has certainly outdone herself with this one. I mean, I’m a little bit scared of her at this point, because the whole thing is pretty twisted, but I also love it and feel like, well, at least Rihanna’s a pop star that constantly tries to outdo herself. She certainly did it this time.
“BBHMM” is definitely the best track from R8 we’ve heard so far (though word on the street is that the album has been scrapped due to poor response to most of the first promotional material and Rihanna’s going back to the drawing board with new producers/writers – not sure how true that is, though!) so I’m glad it got a full-length video. I mean, I’m still a little concerned for what goes on in Rihanna’s brain, given that she came up with this concept herself and directed it, but I’m just gonna go along with it.
A few weeks ago, it was revealed that long-time bisexualMiley Cyrus was apparently in a relationship with Victoria’s Secret model Stella Maxwell. Neither of them had ever officially said anything about being together and the most we had to go on was a few photos of them hanging out on Instagram. Well, it seems things are for real, because they were recently pictured making out on a Los Angeles video shoot for one of Miley’s new songs.
This all went down (so to speak) in the parking lot of The Palm and TMZ has some video and more pictures, if that’s your thing. We’ve got a few below, but I can’t help but roll my eyes at this bullshit, not because they don’t like each other, but because why does it all need to play out in public, and why the massive show? I’m not saying you can’t kiss your girlfriend in a public place, but to go on the way they did even when they knew cameras were around is so obnoxious. Get it together, Miley.
Channing Tatum doesn’t just play a stripper in Magic Mike XXL, he used to be one in real life! That’s not some new fact or anything – everyone knows it by now – but here’s what you don’t know: he’s not completely against the idea of ever going back to it. Intrigued yet?! Just listen to what he told Vanity Fair:
I asked Tatum if he’d ever do it again—not in a film, not as a joke, but for real, in front of a mob of women, on a dark night when he could dance one of the classic pieces: the waylaid fireman; the cop who has other ways of settling the ticket; the street rapper who rides the pony. “Well, we’re going to start a [Magic Mike] show in Vegas, and I’ll never say never,” he told me. “I wouldn’t mind going out there and doing it one more time. Or maybe twice. But, you know, every time I’ve put on a thong and am getting ready to walk onstage again, I’m like, ‘Why do I want to do this?’ It’s very uncomfortable to be in a thong in front of a thousand people.”
Uh… I’m sure there are plenty of ladies that would be pretty into that. And some gentlemen, as well, for that matter. Of course, I’m sure he’s being sorta tongue-in-cheek, though I dunno, because he’s clearly a bit of a freak (in a good way?).
Channing also has Deep Thoughts on the world of acting and how all the mystery of celebrity is gone, which I kind of agree with:
“The Brad Pitts, the Leos, the Downeys: Why aren’t there new versions of those guys? I think people just know too much about actors, about everything. Behind the scenes. It’s almost like the world is so with you all the time, people on the phones and blah blah blah, that to go into a movie theater for three hours and lose that time is harder and harder. People watch TV at home and they’re still on their phone, wired. They’re even wired to the actors. Twitter, Facebook, Instagram. You feel connected. So that [actor] doesn’t feel as mythic anymore. I used to go see movies to watch people because I didn’t know anything about them. The only time I got access was in a movie. I wanted to go see the movie because I hadn’t seen my guy in a while.”
Is it wrong to say I kinda like Channing Tatum? Because I totally do!
Have any of you guys been watching True Detective? The second season is better than the first insofar as that I actually got through the first episode (and watched the second), but it’s still a little strange and I don’t particularly care about any of the characters yet, which is a shame because I love Rachel McAdams. You know who else loves her? Her co-star, Taylor Kitsch, because they’re apparently dating after striking up an on-set romance.
“It hasn’t been long,” says an insider. “But it’s serious.”
The Canadians, who recently wrapped the HBO drama’s second season, have been “friends for years,” adds a second McAdams source. “They grew closer on set.”
“I don’t know if it’s full-blown love yet, but they talk constantly,” another source confirms. “They’re really into each other. She talks about him all the time!”
Well… that’s cute, I guess? I mean, Rachel is way too beautiful for any earthly creature besides, maybe, Ryan Gosling, and we all know that ship has sailed. I don’t think this relationship with Kitsch will last very long, but hey, I guess enjoy it while it’s there.
Also, I love that Rachel tries to say in interviews that she’s not into on-set romances, but this is like, her third one. LOL, okay, girl.
The last time we heard from Enrique Iglesias, he was getting chopped up by a drone while performing a concert in Mexico. He seems to have healed up pretty well, however, since he got arrested in Miami in May (and yes, we’re just hearing about it) for trying to pull a fast one on a cop while out driving.
Enrique Iglesias got busted trying to slip out of the driver’s seat of his ride when cops pulled him over recently — possibly because he knew he had a suspended license … just a guess.
According to Miami police, Iglesias was driving a white Cadillac Escalade back in May when cops pulled him over for driving in a closed off express lane. That’s when his Houdini act began — police say Enrique hopped into the back seat while his passenger slid into the driver’s seat.
The magic act bombed … with cops, anyway.
Enrique and the passenger, his tour manager, both got arrested … and both have pled not guilty to obstruction. Enrique also pled not guilty to driving with a suspended license.
Why are people so dumb? Literally, if his manager was with him, why didn’t the manager just drive? (Unless the manager’s license was also suspended, in which case, what is wrong with these people?) Trying to switch seats while a cop is right in front of you is doubly dumb, so he deserves whatever fine befalls him.
