Box Office weekend update… Lorde publicly shames photographer… Princes William and Harry’s weekend wedding… Justin Bieber in Vegas with Kylie Jenner… Ben Affleck banned from blackjack at the Hard Rock Casino
Reviews have been mixed for “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” but that didn’t stop people for coming out in droves for the debut this weekend. Spidey earned $92 million at the box office, averaging $21K per theater. In its second week of release “The Other Woman” was WAY behind in second with $14.2 million. Coming in third was “Heaven Is for Real” with $8.7 million.
Lorde has decided to take matters into her own hands by publicly shaming a photographer she claims has been stalking her. She posted a picture of Simon Runting, as well as a link to his Facebook page. She tweeted: “this man has been stalking me, photographing me and refusing me privacy. i am scared of him…i understand that this comes with the territory. i do not understand why I should be complacent…this should not be an accepted standard for young women or anyone in this industry…i refuse to stay complicit and i refuse to stay passive about men systematically subjecting me to extreme fear.”
Memphis will never be the same! Princes William and Harry attended the wedding of their old school friend and nightclub owner Guy Pelly and Holiday Inn heiress Lizzy Wilson on Saturday. Because of security reasons, the air space over the Memphis Hunt and Polo Club was declared a no-fly zone. Since Harry is single again, he escorted his cousins, Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice. There were other Royals there, but since I don’t recognize any of their names, there’s no need to list them here. A source at the wedding told Page Six that Harry and William couldn’t have been more polite. They spoke with all the family members of the bride and engaged the staff. Harry even practiced his “flawless” Southern accent on the guests. The source says Harry was a good boy. He wasn’t chasing women around the dance floor. Instead, he hung out mostly with his cousins. William, however, tore the dance floor up! They said he danced for 45 minutes straight!
Justin Bieber was in Vegas for his good buddy Floyd Mayweather’s fight on Saturday. Floyd beat Marcos Maidana, by the way. During the festivities, Justin posed for a selfie with none other than Selena Gomez’s sworn enemy, Kylie Jenner! Remember, the rumor is that Selena dumped Justin AGAIN after he and Kylie got super flirty at Coachella. She was so mad, she unfollowed both the Jenner sisters on Instagram. However, a source says Selena made nice with Kylie last week, saying Selena “has no issues with Kylie whatsoever.” But that was before the weekend in Vegas!
Ben Affleck was allegedly kicked out of the Hard Rock Casino in Vegas after security suspected he was counting cards at the blackjack table. Word quickly spread that Ben was banned from the casino for life, but the Hard Rock issued a statement to Fox News saying, “Mr. Affleck, a valued guest of Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, is not banned from our property and is welcome back any time.” They just should have included in parentheses, “But he IS banned from playing blackjack here for the rest of his life.”
