Just last month, ‘Tiger King’ star Joe Exotic announced he formally filed for divorce from husband Dillion Passage, and now he has announced his engagement to a fellow inmate he met in prison, John Graham. Joe says in a letter that the two of them met after he was released from solitary confinement and their relationship blossomed quickly. He compares their love story to ‘Twilight’ lovers Bella and Edward, and says their love is a “type of love he has never experienced.” He also revealed that his new lover “practices witchcraft” and is an old soul and that he ” talks like he is from 400 years ago.” The couple plans to wed in prison as soon as Joe is divorced.

Sean “Diddy” Combs is executive producing and hosting the upcoming 2022 Billboard Music Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Vegas. This marks a special occasion for Diddy. It was 25 years ago that he won his first BMA for his album “No Way Out.” Unlike the Grammys, there’s no voting for the BMAs. According to Billboard, “Finalists and winners are based on key fan interactions with music, including album and digital song sales, streaming, radio airplay, and social engagement, tracked by Billboard and its data partners…” This year, The Weeknd leads with 17 nominations, followed by Doja Cat with 14. Olivia Rodrigo, Justin Bieber and Kanye West each have 13 nominations. BTS is the most-nominated group with seven. And this year’s Icon Award will go to Mary J. Blige. The 2022 Billboard Music Awards will air live on NBC and Peacock on May 15.
Kris Jenner’s longtime boyfriend Corey Gamble took the stand in Blac Chyna’s lawsuit against the Kardashian and Jenners yesterday. He testified that early on the morning of Dec. 15, 2016, he was called to come to Kylie’s house, which is where Chyna and Rob were living at the time. When Corey walked in, he testified that he saw Chyna standing by the bedroom with a 2 to 3-foot rod in her hand and Rob was standing about 7 feet away, looking red in the face and neck, like he’d been in a physical altercation. Corey said when Chyna saw him, she immediately dropped the rod and picked up a long iPhone cord and started whipping Rob with it. Corey testified, “I got in the middle and got hit too. I had to try to get her attention on me so [Rob] could get his belongings and get out of the house. I could smell the alcohol on her.” Corey said Rob grabbed his wallet and keys and walked out the front door to leave, but Corey’s car was blocking his. At that point, Corey testified, Chyna picked up a patio chair, threw it at Rob’s car, then jumped on Rob’s back and started punching him in the back of his head. Corey said, “She tried to get the small table to throw it at him but Rob was already in his car.” Corey said he stayed at the house for a few minutes to make sure Chyna didn’t try to follow Rob in her car, and she was just yelling how much she hated Rob and said, “Why would I like this fat (BLANKER) if he wasn’t a part of this family?” Kim flew back from DC because she was called to testify yesterday. Basically, she acknowledged that she demanded Chyna be kept off “Keeping Up With The Kardashians,” because, “I will not go into a toxic work environment. On my own show, I have the power to do that.” She was also asked about a text to one of her producers that said, “If you guys are going to film with Rob and Chyna, and then you are going to lose the Kardashians and Jenners.” She said that was about KUWTK, not “Rob & Chyna.” However, when Khloe took the stand, she addressed a an email she allegedly sent that said, “We are even considering not moving forward with our show if theirs continues, that’s how strongly we feel this is damaging to our family.” She testified that she felt Rob and Chyna’s relationship could be damaging for the family’s personal brand and was not referring to Rob and Chyna’s show. And as Kim and Kris had previously testified, Khloe said neither she nor the rest of the family had any control over E!’s decision to cancel “Rob & Chyna.”
Dr. Shannon Curry is a psychologist hired by Johnny Depp’s defense team to evaluate Amber Heard. She testified yesterday that she believes Amber suffers from borderline personality disorder. She testified that Amber “demonstrates psychological symptoms of combined borderline personality disorder and histrionic personality disorder.” Dr. Curry testified that in her opinion, Amber had “grossly exaggerated” symptoms of the PTSD she blamed on her relationship with Johnny. She added that it’s typical of borderline personalities to be “assaultive as partners. They’ll make threats using the legal system, threaten to file for a restraining order, claim abuse…” Amber’s attorneys tried to argue that Johnny provoked Amber’s alleged violent outbursts by “gaslighting” their client.” Later, the LAPD officer who responded to a 911 call Amber placed after alleging Johnny had thrown a phone at her face testified in a sworn deposition that she did not identify Amber as a victim of domestic violence. While Amber has photos of bruises to her face that she claims occurred that night, the officer said she and her fellow officer noticed no sign of injury to Amber’s face. She did say that Amber’s eyes were red and appeared to be crying. But they left without taking any notes or filing a report because they determined no crime had taken place.
