Whitney Houston’s Emmy for sale… Is Jordan Rodgers active on Raya?… Prince is not the father… Kevin Hart calls out robber… and Calvin Harris refollows Taylor Swift on Instagram

The Television Academy is suing to stop Whitney Houston’s family from selling the Emmy she won for her performance of “Saving All My Love for You” at the 1986 Grammys.  The Academy claims the Emmy is not actually Whitney’s property because the awards are loans, not gifts. And they say a notice is always affixed to the bottom of the award that makes it clear that an honoree or heir can’t sell it. Whitney’s heirs have the Emmy listed at $10K on Heritage Auctions’ website and it will be open for bids tomorrow unless the Academy is successful in getting it back.

Jordan Rodgers is one of Bachelorette Jo Jo’s front-runners. Whether he’s her final choice or not remains to be seen but until then, he has to keep up appearances that he’s in the running. So he’s doing some damage control over this story that he’s active on the dating app Raya. He says he’s been inactive since he started filming “The Bachelorette” in February, and then he completely canceled the account the exact minute his phone was returned to him when filming wrapped in May. But he says before he could cancel, the auto renewal had already been processed through the month of May and into June. Jordan said, “I would not be dumb enough to breach my contract or do anything related to a dating app to give any insight to what may or may not have happened on the show.”

The DNA test results are in, and Carlin Q. Williams…………………you are NOT Prince’s son. Carlin is an inmate at a Colorado prison, serving nearly eight years in federal prison for unlawfully transporting a firearm in a stolen vehicle. Carlin claims his mama told him she hooked up with Prince at a hotel in Kansas City, Missouri, back in 1976, and he was the result of that one-night stand. Whether or not that one-night stand happened, Carlin won’t be getting a part of Prince’s estimated $300 million estate.

Kevin Hart posted a picture of a man wearing a ski mask on his Instagram yesterday:

Kevin has 37.5 million followers, so there’s a good chance someone might recognize this guy. Kevin’s home was robbed last week of half a million dollars worth of jewelry and personal items.

Taylor Swift sure did bounce back quickly from her breakup with Calvin Harris. A source told “Life & Style” that the reason she’s flaunting her new relationship with Tom Hiddleston is because she was humiliated that Calvin dumped her and she wanted to get revenge. Reportedly, Calvin accused Taylor of being inappropriate when she danced with Tom at the Met Gala and it led to a huge argument. So when he dumped her, the source says Taylor put the moves on Tom because “she wanted Calvin to feel even a fraction of the pain she was feeling.” Maybe it worked at first because Calvin removed all traces of Taylor from social media and stopped following her. But now Calvin may be trying to prove he’s over it because he just started re-following Taylor AND her brother Austin on IG yesterday.
