Katy Perry & John Mayer Broke Up Again, Apparently

katy perry john mayer

It seems to me like Katy Perry and John Mayer are working on becoming the new Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber when it comes to how many times they can break up and get back together again. They rekindled their romance earlier this year, and things seemed to be going well. They even enjoyed (???) a romantic day out at Disneyland just a couple of months ago. Unfortunately, their bliss has come to an end again, at least for the time being, and they’re done.

These two have been up and down (or “hot and cold,” if you will) for years now, and E! News has exclusively learned from a source close to the couple that they’ve called it quits again.

The insider didn’t offer any specifics as to the reasoning behind the two celebs’ decision to break up, but notes that they’re known to make-up time and time again (we know), so it’s very possible these two will reunite in the near future.

My guess is that Katy’s about to start on her new album and that means John is out. He’s a bit of a layabout at times and just wants to chill, and Katy gets super focused when it comes to her career, and when she’s in high gear, relationships sorta fall by the wayside. That’s why they broke up last time… and the two times before that (I have it on pretty good authority this is what happened – friend of a friend situation), not because of any serious problems. They genuinely like each other, they just kinda want different things out of life.

Kylie Jenner “Graduated” From High School

I think it’s pretty clear that Kylie Jenner hasn’t set foot inside an institute of learning in the past few years, likely much longer. And yet, we’re all expected to keep up the charade and pretend we believe Kim Jr.‘s announcement that she “graduated” high school this week. I mean, check out her diploma! It looks totally legit! Or, you know, like something Kris printed out from MS Paint right before the picture was taken.

Here’s the caption she put with the above photo:

“I love my mom for doing this. Thank you for making this experience as normal as possible for me. Yay???? I graduated :)

LOL, yes, you love your mom for making that fake ass diploma. Millions of dollars can’t buy you graphic design skills, I see. Also, a little research on “Laurel Springs High School” brings up the following description: WASP-accredited K–12 distance learning school in Ojai, California, United States. Laurel Springs School offers personalized resources, customizable curricula, individualized teacher services, college advising and other services to families attending public and private school who are looking for another option.

So, basically a fake school. As expected. Kongrats, girl.

Chris Brown Is Being Held Hostage In Manila

chris brown

Things aren’t going well for Chris Brown lately, it seems. First, his group of “friends” break into his mom’s house, and now he’s begging President Obama to intervene on his behalf because he was apparently stuck in the Philippines since he tried to leave without performing a concert he’d been paid to do. Again.

From TMZ:

Turns out Chris Brown’s legal team was wrong — he never got airborne in Manila — he was turned around literally as his plane was on the runway, because he allegedly tried skipping out on a concert. Think of “Argo,” except the plane doesn’t make it out.

The dispute has been brewing for months. Chris was supposed to perform in Manila for New Year’s Eve but was a no show. The promoter says Chris got his million dollar payment and he’s been demanding a refund ever since.

Well, Chris went back to Manila for another concert this week, but when he tried to leave the government blocked the flight after the promoter convinced officials what Chris did amounted to theft.

So he’s now stuck in Manila, sitting in a hotel room and Instagramming for help from Obama.

If you’re wondering what that last bit is about, here ya go:

Why does anyone bother with this piece of shit anymore? He’s squandered any bit of talent he actually had years ago, he’s unreliable, he’s violent, he’s basically a waste of space. Hollywood finally (mostly) got the memo that Lohan was a lost cause, so why not Brown?

Taylor Swift Finally Apologizes & Nicki Minaj Accepts

taylor swift nicki minaj

Don’t worry, everyone can breathe a sigh of relief now, because the latest pop feud is done… for now. Taylor Swift finally apologized for being an ignorant, arrogant, privileged something-or-other and Nicki Minaj graciously accepted – or at least decided it’s not worth taking it any further since Swifty will never truly understand, anyway.

It took roughly 48 hours, a deep burn from Katy Perry and all of the Internet turning against her for Taylor (or her PR team) to smash out 140 characters on a keyboard that show her humility, or at least her desperation to stay at the top of the pop music game, unsullied and perfect.

That was the most forced apology (and acceptance) I think I’ve ever seen. I feel like we should all be applauding Nicki for showing so much restraint and grace throughout this entire situation, because she could have snatched Taylor’s edges back to Timbuktu, really. I probably would have done.

But Taylor got out of this what she wanted: she now looks so wonderfully gracious and wonderful now that she’s apologized and it looks like she’ll retain her national hero status. Well, to idiots, maybe.

Is 50 Cent Peddling A Fake Lavish Lifestyle?

50 cent

Last week, 50 Cent shocked the world when he filed for bankruptcy after he was ordered to pay $5 million to the mother of Rick Ross’ child for leaking her sex tape in retaliation for their ongoing feud. He’s been back in court this week to determine how much of that he’ll actually have to pay, and while he’s continued to flaunt a rather lavish lifestyle on social media, 50 told a judge that it’s all for show and he doesn’t actually live like that.

From Page Six:

The rapper, ordered to testify about his finances in Manhattan Supreme court Tuesday morning, said that his over-the-top displays of wealth — the bling, the Lamborghinis, Bentleys and Rolls Royces — are all smoke and mirrors.

“Those cars were rented,” admitted the 40-year-old rapper, whose real name is Curtis Jackson.

“It’s like music videos, they say action and you see all these fancy cars but everything goes back to the dealership,” he added.

The rings, the chains?

“I borrowed from the jeweler,” he admitted.

In reality, he owns just three gold chains, which he has a jeweler refashion into a new piece every now and then, he said.

And forget about a diamond-studded Rolex–he said he wears a plastic Casio G-Shock instead.

Stoppppp. Is he for real? He and his team claim that he’s only worth $4 million, which… LOL, no. Forbes actually estimated his worth somewhere around $155 million, and while I’m sure most of that isn’t liquid, trying to say you wear a plastic Casio watch has me in tears (of laughter).

Jackson had to admit he still commands top dollar for appearances, taking $100,000 for a day of filming “Spy” and $200,000 for a concert appearance last week in London.

He also confirmed that his 17-acre Connecticut estate has a basketball court and a nightclub — though he couldn’t remember the zip code for his 21-bedroom pad.

In court, Jackson tried to sweeten the jury of four women and two men by flashing big smiles.

“You gotta smile when you’re in a public situation. If you’re crying they’re just having more fun with you,” he said.

I’ve always loved 50 and I still do, he cracks me up. But this is just ridiculous. Apparently his lawyer told the court that his bank account is ever-shrinking because he still owes $1800 to his grandfather for an unpaid debt, among other outgoing costs. HAHAHA. Oh, Curtis.

Miranda Lambert Denies Cheating, Accuses Blake Instead

blake shelton miranda lambert

Oh God, will this ever end? When Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert announced their divorce, no one was really all that shocked. No one even cared when they heard it was over alleged infidelity, because of course it was. Blake accused Miranda of having an affair, which she vehemently denied. Instead, she says he’s the one who cheated, and frankly, it’s looking like that just might be the case, given that his mistress Cady Groves has been all kinds of sloppy on Twitter the past couple of days.

From TMZ:

It’s a classic case of he said/she said … but sources close to Lambert say Shelton’s the one who strayed … with a famous country singer no less.

The sources claim Blake’s camp was unscrupulous, and threw mud with the help of a powerful PR firm that attacked Miranda before the ink was dry on the divorce docs.

We’re told she’s incensed Blake accused her of cheating with a country singer. She says it never happened, and so does the singer.

Here’s the tweets from that “famous country singer” having no social media chill whatsoever and embarrassing pretty much everyone involved in this situation:

Oh, girl, no. I mean, why is she so sprung… ON BLAKE SHELTON, of all people? This whole thing is just sad, on so many levels.

Kourtney Kardashian Wants Full Custody Of Her 3 Kids With Scott Disick

kourtney kardashian kids

Kourtney Kardashian has, for most intents and purposes, been a single parent all along. Sure, Scott Disick donated his sperm, but he’s been too busy sharing it with other women and snorting lines of coke off their asses to worry about raising his kid. Now that the relationship is finally over, Kourtney has been meeting with lawyers to protect her assets – and to file for full custody of Mason, Penelope and Reign.

Kourtney Kardashian has met with top Hollywood divorce attorney, “disso queen” Laura Wasser, following her high-profile split from Scott Disick — and it’s because she’s seeking sole custody of their kids, a source confirms exclusively to Us Weekly.

While Kardashian and Disick were not married, the couple of nine years shares three young children, Mason, 5, Penelope, 3, and Reign, 7 months. A source tells Us in the new issue that Kourtney, 36, is determined to protect her kids from Disick’s downward spiral, fueled by booze, drugs, and other vices.

On Monday, July 20, Kardashian paid yet another visit to the top Hollywood attorney’s office building in L.A.’s Century City nabe. “She met with Laura Wasser again,” a Kardashian pal tells Us. “And is going to seek sole custody of the kids.”

She and Disick currently do not have a formal custody arrangement, but sources tell Us a battle over the kids would be surprising. “Scott’s friends don’t think he’ll challenge Kourtney,” one insider tells Us, while another adds that the self-proclaimed Lord “doesn’t act like a dad at all when he’s partying.”

Wasser seems to be the Kardashian family lawyer – she’s worked with Kim and Khloe before – so that makes sense. Also, unless Scott’s being a total dickhead (which is likely), I doubt he’ll fight her much. He doesn’t want kids – they’d just interfere with all his partying. If he doesn’t get his act together soon, he’ll likely end up in a ditch before they get to high school, but I don’t think he really cares.
