Halle Berry says Gabriel Aubry is a deadbeat living off her child support payments

gabriel aubry halle berry

Oh snap. Halle Berry is currently paying former boyfriend and baby daddy Gabriel Aubry a cool $16,000 per month towards taking care of their daughter Nahla, of whom he has part-time custody. However, Halle has gone to court to ask a judge to cut those payments down since Gabriel is apparently a deadbeat who is living entirely off Halle’s money.

From TMZ:

TMZ has learned … Berry filed legal docs asking the judge in their custody case to reduce her monthly child support obligation from $16,000 a month to just over $3,000 a month.

Halle claims in her legal docs … Gabriel has stopped working and is content to live off of the child support, and that’s an abuse of the system.

She notes Gabriel is perfectly capable of getting a job … and by reducing the support it will allow 6-year-old Nahla to live a comfortable life … supplemented by his income.

Halle and Gabriel have joint custody … each has the kid around 50% of the time.

We contacted Gabriel’s rep … so far, no word back.

Not feeling deadbeats of any kind. I think it’s absolutely ridiculous that anyone at any point decided that a child would ever need $16,000 a month in care, anyway. Even if you were taking them to restaurants every night (which… no) and buying them new clothes every month, it would not total anywhere near that amount of money. No wonder he’s living large.

He needs to get a job, though, and the child support SHOULD be cut down – not only to prevent him from living the easy life, but because NO CHILD NEEDS THAT MUCH CARE, especially not when she’s only with him 50% of the time anyway.

Stephen Collins is an “overall good guy”, says ’7th Heaven’ co-star

stephen collins

Stephen Collins may have molested and exposed himself to several underage girls and fantasized about having sex with his own child in his time, but he’s an “overall good guy”… this according to his former 7th Heaven co-star Kyle Searles. If you have no idea who in the hell that is, you’re not alone – apparently he played a character called Mac for three years, so go figure.

Former 7th Heaven cast member Kyle Searles told PEOPLE that Collins, 67, was an “overall good guy” and not an “overly private person who would lead you to believe he was capable of such things that came out recently.”

Searles, who played Mac from 2004 to 2007 on the WB drama that starred Collins as a minister and married father of seven children, said he felt compelled to speak on the actor’s behalf because “it’s important for everybody to know the type of person he was prior to anything coming out.”

I’m sorry, but WHY is it important, exactly? So if, say, someone goes out and brutally murders someone, but they’re totally nice and pleasant when you meet them a few years later, does that mean they weren’t guilty and in need of prosecution? Give me a break, loser.

Stephen Collins – and anyone else who exposes himself and/or otherwise becomes sexually involved with a child is not an “overall good” person. They’re disgusting, sick, perverse… nowhere on that list will you find a positive adjective. What planet is Kyle Searles living on? Hopefully he’s getting some acting roles there, because he sure isn’t on this one.

Chris Noth says ‘Sex and the City’s Carrie Bradshaw was a whore

carrie big

I don’t think Chris Noth really understood what Sex and the City was actually about. In fact, he seems downright ignorant not only about the show and the characters on it, but about the world at large, since he thinks his character from the show, Big, was a super awesome guy while Carrie Bradshaw (played by Sarah Jessica Parker, if you live under a rock) was “such a whore”. Yes, he actually said that.

From News.com.au:

Q.So you worried about being typecast, post-Sex and the City?

It’s funny, because even with The Good Wife people accuse me of always playing powerful men. But they’re flawed — Big was powerful because he had a lot of money and he seemed to have the upper hand in the relationship, but emotionally he was a wreck.

Actually, no: he was what he was. One of the things I tell people is that he never tried to pretend he was anything other than what he was. It was [Carrie] who tried to pretend he was something he wasn’t. He was always honest about himself — he never cheated on her. The relationship just didn’t work, and he went on to get married while she went on to … how many boyfriends did she have? She was such a whore! [laughs] There’s a misconception that Carrie was a victim of him, and that’s not the case — she was a strong, smart woman.

I feel like I need to take a few moments to fully absorb this level of stupidity. Hahaha, women are whores! Men do no wrong! LOL!!

I don’t want to get deep and meaningful about an HBO series that ended almost 10 years ago, but let’s get real here: Big was no angel, and Carrie was far from a whore. But of course, men who do what Carrie did – date around, look for someone she actually clicked with and could be with forever, perhaps sleep with a few different people a year – are just being dudes! That’s what they do! Women? Whores, the lot of them! Fuck off, Chris Noth. Join the 21st century.

Kesha’s mother threatened Dr. Luke via email

kesha dr luke

Uh oh. After news broke that Kesha was suing Dr. Luke for alleged emotional, physical and sexual abuse which has taken place over the past 10 years, Dr. Luke fired back, claiming that this was an elaborate extortion plan just to get Kesha out of her contract. A bit extreme, but it’s becoming more obvious where he got that defense from, since apparently Kesha’s mother, Pebe Sebert, sent his lawyer an email a year ago warning that this was coming.

From TMZ:

In the email — obtained by TMZ — Pebe Sebert complains that Luke screwed her out of music publishing rights connected to her daughter. She then says,

“We, me and Kesha and her friends, like Lady Gaga, are going to make all of this Really PUBLIC, in the next few days. Luke date raped Kesha when she was 18. Nicky Hilton’s birthday? Paris Hilton’s house? Luke gave Kesha pills. She ended up naked in his hotel room 2 days later. No longer a virgin?”

The email then gives an ultimatum:

“Do we all want this to come out? Either Luke releases Kesha from all legal contracts, and gives me back all my publishing, or we, Kesha and I, tell the truth.”

And then there’s this:

“And if I wind up dead, TRUST ME, IT’S IN WRITING TO CALL YOU AND LUKE.”

Luke says in his lawsuit against Kesha her allegations are a pack of lies and designed to scare him into releasing her from a binding recording contract. He also claims Kesha and her mom have admitted they lied about the allegations.

I dunno still, guys. For one thing, do we know this email was really sent (or that it was real/not made up by Dr Luke’s side)? Second of all, while it does sound like she’s trying to blackmail him, that doesn’t mean the allegations are false. Third of all, WHY WON’T HE LET HER OUT OF THIS RECORDING CONTRACT? Like, literally – whether he’s guilty or not, whether she’s lying or not, what possible working relationship can these two have moving forward? I’m honestly not getting it.

Madonna’s daughter Lourdes Leon is living in a shared dorm room

lourdes leon

I feel bad for the kids of famous people, in a way. They’re thrust into the spotlight and live a particular lifestyle without ever having been given a choice just because it’s what their parents chose. Because of that, a lot of celebrity kids also go into the business or just go off the rails. Lourdes Leon, Madonna‘s daughter, seems to be trying to stay on the right track and live a somewhat normal life, though, since she’s attending the University of Michigan (her mother’s alma mater, though she never graduated) and living in a shared dorm room. Aw, hell no!

From The Daily Mail:

Speaking to the MailOnline a fellow student said: ‘She’s not as sociable as many people would have thought and she couldn’t be more different from Madonna’s huge persona.’

The pal added: ‘Every day that passes she’s slowly coming out of her shell.

‘There’s no diva behavior or anything like that. She’s really aware how people might judge her and doesn’t want a bad reputation.’

Lourdes recently enrolled in the School of Music, Theatre and Dance, attending classes and rehearsal sessions just a four-minute stroll away from her box room.

Her classmates swan around the hallways inside the modern Walgreen Drama Center singing and warming up their vocals with admirable confidence – but Lourdes isn’t quite there yet.

There’s no denying she’s got a gift. In the process to being accepted into the highly acclaimed school she had to submit a script reading and a classical singing performance on video.

But despite having such an extraordinary gift, a friend told MailOnline she ‘couldn’t be more different’ than her mum and is actually very shy, even introducing herself as ‘Lola’ when meeting new friends to avoid them picking up her identity straight away.

Yo, advice for Lola – find out which “pal” is giving quotes to The Mail Online and maybe don’t ever speak to them again because they’re NOT your friend.

Anyhow, it’s nice she’s going to university and having a normal experience. I’m sure it will never TRULY be normal, considering, but it must be refreshing and kind of a relief to be away from the environment she’s grown up in and try out what it’s like to be a normal teenager/college student.

Zac Efron has a new girlfriend named Sami Miro

zac efron sami miro

Behold! I bring you photos of Zac Efron with his new girlfriend, Sami Miro. No one seems to know who she is, what she does or how these two meet, but we know they’re a couple, and that’s all you get.

An insider tells Us that the relationship is in the beginning stages. “Zac is dating Sami but it isn’t serious,” the source says.

Well, I’ll sleep soundly tonight knowing that! Of course, last we heard of Zac’s love life, he was riding around on a boat with Michelle Rodriguez, but they split soon after because apparently he was more into her than she was into him. He seems to have a penchant for a particular type of woman, though, as Sami look somewhat similar to Michelle (despite the blonde hair).

Jennifer Lawrence calls gluten-free diets ‘the cool new eating disorder’

jennifer lawrence

I personally choose not to eat carbs when I’m being mindful/healthy just because that suits me better, but I do love me some bread and I don’t have any official allergies to gluten/wheat/etc. Plenty of people are eating fancy schmancy gluten-free diets, though, because of some self-proclaimed intolerance to gluten and because it seems to be hip. That, of course, doesn’t include those with Celiac disease or any actual gluten intolerance or allergy, but refers mostly to those who think it’s trendy to say they eat gluten-free. Why that’s a thing, I don’t know, but it is – and Jennifer Lawrence hasn’t got time for it (via Yahoo Style).

In a new interview with Vanity Fair, “The Hunger Games” actress Jennifer Lawrence puts herself firmly in the bread-and-pasta crowd, telling writer Sam Kashner she ate spaghetti and meatballs for breakfast the day of their interview. She goes on to describe gluten-free as “the new cool eating disorder, the ‘basically I just don’t eat carbs.’”

Her stance could be seen as throwing shade at Gwyneth Paltrow, the ex-wife of Lawrence’s rumored boyfriend, Chris Martin. Paltrow is almost as famous for her healthy eating as she is for her acting and recently published a cookbook of her favorite gluten-free recipes, It’s All Good. “Everyone in my family is intolerant to gluten and cow dairy,” Paltrow told integrative physician Dr. Frank Lipman of Eleven Eleven Wellness Center in New York when the book was released. “We had the food sensitivities test and the doctor told us to avoid these foods and sugar as much as possible.”

I suppose it can be considered disordered eating to cut out any single group of food when there’s no real need to, but I dunno, that seems a bit much. Spaghetti is delicious, as is toast, as is cake, etc. However, who cares if someone chooses not to eat it? I don’t care if someone is vegetarian, vegan, yada yada. As long as they aren’t preachy, do your thing. I suppose the problem is that people ARE preachy about things like that, so maybe that’s what JLaw is referring to.

LOL at the Goop shade, though. Don’t forget that Chris Martin went back to eating meat after separating from her!
