Celebs Owed Money from Weinstein Co

The Weinstein Company is filing for bankruptcy soon so a lot of celebrities have filed objections to the sale. Jennifer Lawrence, Brad Pitt, Meryl Street, George Clooney, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jake Gyllenhaal and a bunch more are basically saying that they are owed money and those debts should be paid before selling. Quentin Tarantino says that he's owed more than $4.5M. 


Ashley Judd Suing Harvey Weinstein

Ashley Judd, who was one of the actresses to come out against Harvey Weinstein, has now sued Harvey for damaging her career. She specifically mentioned that Harvey blacklisted her from movies like Lord of the Rings because he told the director Peter Jackson that Ashley was a nightmare to work with. Peter has previously mentioned that Harvey did indeed blacklist certain actresses. Ashley is suing for damages and said she will donate the money to charity.  


JLaw Wore Pizza-Stained Dress? (And I Love Her)

This is so very Jennifer Lawrence, if it's true. Page Six is reporting that Jennifer was at a fundraiser for her own foundation in her home state of Kentucky, and forgot her dress she was going to wear in New York. So she had it expedited to her -- only to discover that it had a pizza stain on it, which she tried to cover up the whole night with her clutch. I love her even more than I already did. 


Kanye's Mom's Surgeon Responds 

I told you yesterday that Kanye said he wants to put the doctor who performed his mom's final surgery on the cover of his upcoming album. The doctor has responded in an open letter. He said he doesn't want to seem ungrateful and is more than willing to have a face-to-face conversation with Kanye, but is asking that he "cease and desist" using his photo. He also said that if Kanye wants to love everyone and be truthful, then he needs to put his cousin's picture on the album. The doctor says that the coroner's report highlighted Kanye's cousin as a large reason his mother died… Kanye's cousin is a nurse who was looking after Kanye's mom but left her alone because she had appeared to be doing better. Kanye apparently has seen this open letter and said he wants to sit with the doctor to start healing.

NSYNC received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame yesterday. Ellen Degeneres and Carson Daly inducted them.

Gigi Hadid Spotted Kissing Zayn Malik

Oh snap, just a months after Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik announced their breakup, they were spotted kissing in public. Sooo I guess they aren't fully broken up. 


Kanye West Shares TI Debate Video

We know Kanye and TI's new song "Ye vs. the People" is basically the two of them having a debate about Kanye's support of president Trump. Welp, Kanye just uploaded video to his web site which is him and TI in the studio talking it out, which is pretty cool. Kanye admitted that while he doesn't agree with half the stuff President Trump does, he does elaborate on why he does like him for one particular reason. (Check it out on his web site.)

We know that James Franco has been facing a lot of accusations of sexual misconduct -- and his friend Seth Rogen is finally speaking out about it.
