Adele collaborates with rapper Wiz Khalifa…A$AP Rocky accused of assaulting a female fan…Lamar Odom checks into rehab…and celebrity engagements abound!
Wiz Khalifa is working on his fifth studio album and he says he’s got a lot of guest appearances that he’s already recorded, he just has to wait for them to be cleared. He did drop two names, though. One’s not much of a surprise — Miley Cyrus. But the other is way more interesting — Adele! And Wiz says he’d really like to record something with Lady Gaga. No release date yet for “Blacc to Hollywood,” but Wiz is hoping to have it out by the end of the year.
A$AP Rocky has been charged with assault after slapping a female fan across the face this past weekend. TMZ is reporting that a young mom filed a criminal complaint with the DA’s office in Philadelphia. She claims she was at the Made in America concert Saturday and as A$AP was trying to make his way through a crowd of dancing fans, a bunch of girls were pulling on his shirt. That’s when, she claims, he threw an open-hand slap right across her face. She said A$AP hit her so hard that she got whiplash! The DA’s office reviewed the case and determined he should be charged with misdemeanor simple assault. Meantime, Bossip has exclusive footage of A$AP fighting with security at the VMA’s, if you want to check that out.
Cupid has been working overtime in Hollywood! First we heard Christina Milian is engaged to Jas Prince. It actually happened back in May but they’ve been keeping it a secret until now. And there are rumors that Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher are engaged, but that’s just because she was photographed wearing a simple gold band on her ring finger yesterday. But that could either be to get her name in the press or to tick off Demi Moore. You just never know…..But two definite engagements were announced yesterday. After a whirlwind romance, Scarlett Johansson is engaged to French creative agency manager Romain Dauriac. They’ve been dating for 9 months and he popped the question with a vintage Art Deco ring. This will be her second marriage. Her first, to Ryan Reynolds, only lasted a couple of years. They were divorced in 2011. And congratulations to Katie Couric! Her first husband passed away from colon cancer back in 1998 and she’s had a string of romances…some of them being with men quite a bit younger. But now, finally, at the age of 56, Katie is engaged to her boyfriend of two years, John Molner, who is a little younger at 50. Katie told “People” that she knew she wanted to marry John, so she “made it a priority” and “pursued it with some purpose.”
Russell Brand was allegedly thrown out of the after party for the GQ Men of the Year Awards in London after some comments he made during the awards ceremony. When Boris Johnson accepted the award for Politician of the Year, he made some jokes about the recent chemical attacks and the deaths in Syria. SERIOUSLY?? Yeah. Well, Russell had a problem with that, too. So he brought up the fact that Hugo Boss — the sponsor of the awards ceremony — made the uniforms for the Nazis! He went even further than that. Just suffice it to say that the bigwigs at Hugo Boss were NOT amused…
Lamar Odom checked himself into a drug and alcohol rehab center yesterday, and according to TMZ, that was news to his wife! Reportedly, Khloe Kardashian had no idea that Lamar had checked into a facility. She found out about it just like we did — in the press! This isn’t Lamar’s first try at rehab. He reportedly sought help last summer, but bailed after three weeks. Good luck this time, Lamar!
