Is Rob Kardashian losing weight too quickly?… Madonna’s gay brother stirs up controversy… Damon Wayans defends Bill Cosby… Robert Pattinson avoids ex Kristen Stewart… and Jon Hamm & Jennifer Westfeldt end relationship after 18 years
Rob Kardashian has been living like a hermit the past couple of years after reportedly battling depression and gaining 100 pounds. Sources say that even though Kris Jenner wants us all to think that Rob quit “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” she actually ordered the camera crews to film Rob from the neck up or had editors cut him out of scenes altogether until they finally stopped filming him. But Rob has posted a couple of pictures on his IG lately and it looks like he’s dropping some weight. But a source told Celebrity Dirty Laundry that those close to him are afraid Rob’s losing weight too quickly by starving himself with only 1000 calories a day and working out almost as much as his sister, Khloe.
Madonna’s openly gay brother has stirred up a bit of controversy for himself by supporting the Kentucky clerk who was thrown in jail for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Christopher Ciccone says Kim Davis shouldn’t be persecuted for her religious beliefs and that the gay community is acting like “sore winners.” He wrote on his FB: “Selective shaming and bullying corrupts a democracy….freedom of press, speech and religion give it strength.” He added, “Is it so difficult to allow this women (sic) her religion? The rights we have all fought for, mean nothing, if we deny her hers.”
Well! Bill Cosby has at least one defender — Damon Wayans. He went on a radio show Friday and said he doesn’t think Bill Cosby is a rapist. He believes that Bill was having a relationship with all 51 of his accusers and that when he tried to end those relationships, “they’re like, ‘Oh really? Rape!” He also thinks that some of the women are “un-rapeable.” He said, “I look at them and go, ‘No, he don’t want that. Get outta here!’”
Robert Pattinson bailed on the Venice Film Festival, using the excuse that he’s busy shooting a movie in Ireland. But sources told Page Six that Robert had no intention of going to the festival because Kristen Stewart was going to be there. The source said, “He didn’t want the story to be all about how he and Kristen were nearly bumping into each other…Venice is very small…and there are only so many parties and hotels.”
After 18 years together, Jon Hamm and his girlfriend Jennifer Westfeldt have gone their separate ways. They issued a joint statement saying they “will continue to be supportive of each other in every way possible moving forward.” Earlier this year, Jon went through rehab for alcoholism and credited Jennifer for getting him through it.
