Scott Disick ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ Checks Will Keep Coming

scott disick

Scott Disick is out of the Kardashian Kash Kab for now since his longtime fool partner Kourtney Kardashian has finally kicked his ass to the kurb for his partying and cheating ways, but he’s not all that upset about it. In fact, he doesn’t care either way whether or not he’s cut out of the empire, because he gets paid for Keeping Up With The Kardashians whether or not he actually appears in any episodes, as per his contract with E!

From TMZ:

Our sources tell us “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” cams will NOT shoot Disick’s single guy partying adventures for the show’s next season. However, they might include him in shoots related to his and Kourtney’s relationship issues.

But honestly, lord Disick couldn’t care less. We’re told his contract calls for him to get paid … as long as he cooperates when, and if, producers need him. Even if they end up editing him out, he gets his money.

Alternately, he could pull a Rob Kardashian and refuse to be shot. Then he’d get squat.

This ain’t chump change either — our sources say Scott takes home about $4,000,000 a year from his appearances on ‘KUWTK’ and its spinoffs.

Um, $4 million? COME ON. What’s ridiculous is that you know he’ll get paid for nothing. Kourtney and the rest of the family will likely throw a fit and not want him anywhere near production or on the show, which means it’s not up to him whether or not he’s there, and he’ll still get paid… to be a complete fucking moron and a deadbeat dad to his three kids. Isn’t the world a wonderful place?

50 Cent Bankruptcy Filing Is A Shocker, Right?

50 cent

How could this be happening?! 50 Cent, arguably one of the smartest guys out there when it comes to handling his money (and arguably one of the richest guys out there) is having some money trouble. What kinda money trouble? Well, 50 filed for bankruptcy on Monday. It’s unlikely that he’s TOTALLY broke, but given the millions of dollars he’s lost in lawsuits over the past few months, he’s gotta do something because he’s literally hemorrhaging money.

The 40-year-old rapper, Curtis James Jackson III, filed for chapter 11 protection in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Hartford, Conn., on Monday, the same day he was supposed to appear in a New York state court to determine whether he owes punitive damages in a 2010 lawsuit filed by Lastonia Leviston, rapper Rick Ross’s ex-girlfriend, court records show.

Jurors said last week that Mr. Jackson should pay $5 million to Ms. Leviston, who said that Mr. Jackson violated her privacy by posting a sex tape of her online. Mr. Jackson’s lawyers dispute the amount of the verdict.

The skeletal, five-page bankruptcy petition didn’t reference the lawsuit. Generally, filing for bankruptcy protection halts lawsuits and collection efforts.

“This filing for personal bankruptcy protection permits Mr. Jackson to continue his involvement with various business interests and continue his work as an entertainer, while he pursues an orderly reorganization of his financial affairs,” said William A. Brewer III, his lawyer, in a statement. Lawyers didn’t explain how he plans to use bankruptcy protection to get a fresh start.

Mr. Jackson estimates that his assets and debts, which were not itemized, are worth between $10 million and $50 million, court papers said.

So basically, when a rich person declares bankruptcy, not much changes? It sounds to me like it just means people can’t get money out of him but he can continue his current lifestyle. How in the hell does that work out? Come on, lawyers of Evil Beet, explain it to me.

I always thought he was rich as shit because of his stake in Vitamin Water, which apparently made him, like, between $40 and $100 million. Of course, that kinda money doesn’t last forever when you spend recklessly, but I’m a little confused by this whole thing!

The New ‘Suicide Squad’ Sneak Peak Is Here — VIDEO

jared leto suicide squad

Admittedly, I’m not all that excited for Suicide Squad not because I don’t think it’ll be good, but because I literally know nothing about it, other than the fact that Jared Leto is playing The Joker. Beyond that, it’s all kind of lost on me, but I know it’s a massive thing for a lot of fans, so when the first sneak peak hit San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend, people went NUTS. If you weren’t lucky enough to attend and haven’t yet hunted down the clip, here ya go!

A few people have noticed that The Joker seems to be torturing Harley in part of the video, and I don’t know what that means, but I take it that’s not good.

Are you excited for Suicide Squad? Do you think Leto was a good casting decision?

Why Is Kris Jenner Wearing A Trash Bag?

kris jenner

We all know by now that Kris Jenner is a hot ass mess. She’s 59 and looks damn good (yet terrifying), thanks to a plastic surgeon whose entire pension her family’s business will probably pay handsomely, and good for her. But the desperation that seeps from everything this woman does is just so, so sad and incredibly obvious. She’s gone to great lengths to pimp her own daughters out to see that $$$$ rolling in, but it wasn’t until after she started cashing the checks that Kris realized she wanted some of the attention, too. After all, what good is money if you don’t also have fame?

The only way around this has been to try and mold herself into her daughters, particularly Kim, whose face hers resembles more and more with every procedure. There’s also the “fashion” choices, which are… quite special. As you can see above, Kris decided to try out the new Hefty Fall 2015 line while out and about this weekend. How special.

Amanda Seyfried Wants To #LegalizeIt

amanda seyfried

This won’t be at all surprising, but Amanda Seyfried likes to get stoned, guys. She loves blazing it up on the regular and thinks it should be legal to do so, particularly because she’s experienced medical marijuana’s positive effects on her anxiety and believes everyone should have the same opportunities. In other words, Seyfried wants to #legalizeit ASAP.

Seyfried, who played Sophie Sheridan in Mamma Mia!, told the Sunday Times using the drug would be “the worst thing ever for me” because she suffers from anxiety attacks.

But she added: “I think it’s a wonderful thing, and lots of people use it responsibly, and it should be legal.

“I don’t understand how people can die all the time from alcohol poisoning, yet pot is so stigmatised. They could have put a bong in every scene as far as I’m concerned.”

I mean, I think Seyfried is kinda living in the Stone Age, because unless you live in some hyper-conservative community, pot is not really stigmatized anymore. No one really cares and it’s certainly not as big of a deal as it once was (although we won’t get into the whole thing on pot arrests/racism situation, because I do realize that is very real and serious). At the end of the day, however, she is obviously right. Alcohol is much more dangerous than weed, I’d say. Unfortunately, it just makes me too lazy to do much of anything, so my stoner days are behind me.

Bobby Brown & Alicia Etheredge Welcome Baby Girl

bobby brown alicia etheredge

It’s bittersweet news for Bobby Brown and wife Alicia Etheredge. The couple welcomed a baby girl this weekend, which is wonderful news, but of course is a joyous occasion that’s tainted by the fact that Brown’s daughter Bobbi Kristina is still in a coma in a Georgia hospice care center and will likely never recover. I can’t imagine the conflicting and complicated feelings the family must be having right now, but the birth of a new life IS a wonderful thing and should be celebrated.

Etheredge was apparently admitted to Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles on Friday and gave birth to the couple’s daughter on Saturday, July 11. This is Bobby and Alicia’s second child together; they already have a 5-year-old son Cassius, and Bobby has 4 children (including Bobbi Kristina) from previous relationships.

Congratulations to them, in any case. Hopefully this new baby will provide even the slightest bit of peace and comfort in what’s obviously an incredibly difficult time for the Brown and Houston families.

Amandla Steinberg Shuts Kylie Jenner Down On Instagram

kylie jenner

Kylie Jenner appropriating black culture is not a new thing in any way, so it’s not particularly surprising. However, it is unacceptable to a lot of people, including Hunger Games actress Amandla Steinberg (who you’ll probably recognize as Jaden Smith’s prom date), who aired Kylie out on her own Instagram post. Kylie captioned the above photo “I woke up like disss”, which, girl, first of all, you most certainly didn’t. Your plastic surgeon woke you up like that over a series of procedures. Second of all, no one has said that since mid-2014, so it’s time to move on.

Anyhoo, here’s what Amandla had to say:

Of course, Kylie couldn’t let that go without trying to clap back in her own awkward fashion, but she might as well have not even bothered, because literally her response was so weak (and just plain ridiculous) that I’m even more embarrassed for her than I already was.

kylie

But um… when has Kylie ever? Honestly, I would love someone to show some receipts on a single occasion in which Kylie has brought attention to racism or race politics in America. Does everyone have to be a spokesperson for the cause? No, of course not, and frankly I’d prefer that people as ignorant as Kylie stay silent when they don’t know shit. But to say “mad if I do” when, well, you’ve never done is just a joke. And trying to get at Amandla because you’re mad your ex-boyfriend went to prom with her? Sit down, child.

And in case you don’t get that this is about way more than cornrows, here are some words Amandla shared on her Twitter:
