Box office weekend news… Mark Ballas’ serious injury on DWTS… Deryck Whibley drinking himself to death… Ray J’s wedding present to Kimye… and Benji Madden and Cameron Diaz are reportedly together
It’s no surprise that “Godzilla” dominated the box office this weekend. The movie set a new record for best opening day on Friday with $38.5 million and went on to earn $93.2 million. “Neighbors” came in second with $26 million. And in third, “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” with $16.8 million.
A lot of drama behind the scenes at “Dancing With the Stars.” During rehearsals yesterday, Mark Ballas suffered a serious injury during camera blocking. A source told “People” that his shoulder popped out while he was lifting Candace Cameron Bure. He had to be taken by ambulance to the hospital where he was treated and released, but it’s unclear if he’ll be able to perform on tonight’s finale. The other professional dancers are encouraging him to sit out the show, but Mark is insisting that he wants to perform. As a precaution, another pro will learn the routines and step in for Mark, if necessary.
We haven’t heard much from Deryck Whibley since Avril Lavigne divorced him. But apparently, he’s been drinking himself to a slow death. He actually posted to his website, “I was drinking hard every day. until one night. i was sitting at home, poured myself another drink around mid night and was about to watch a movie when all of a sudden i didn’t feel so good. i then collapsed to the ground unconscious.” He went on to say that his fiancée rushed him to the hospital where he was admitted to ICU. Deryck said his liver and kidneys collapsed on him and that doctors told him if he has just one more drink, he will die. He wrote, “i’m not preaching or anything but just always drink responsibly.” Avril actually tweeted her support saying, “Spoke to @Sum41 Deryck today. I am so proud of him. He is family to me and always will be.”
