Back in February, Logan Paul came home to find a man sitting on his couch charging his iPhone. Logan didn’t know Tahj Deondre Speight and made a citizens arrest, which he, of course, posted on his YouTube page. About a month later, this guy shows up at Jake Paul’s house and got arrested for trespassing. And then a little over a week ago, Tahj was back at Logan’s home. This time, security confronted him and asked for his name, which he was was “the Antichrist, Lucifer.” They made him leave, but Tahj showed up again a few days later and rang Logan’s doorbell. Logan says he’s legitimately afraid for his safety and got a restraining order.

Kim Kardashian is still riding the high from getting President Trump to pardon Alice Marie Johnson, who was serving a life sentence for a non-violent drug offense. Now she’s turned her attention to the case of California death-row inmate Kevin Cooper. Kim tweeted short, sweet and to the point, “Governor Brown, can you please test the DNA of Kevin Cooper?” Kevin was convicted of the 1985 murders of a couple, their 10-year-old daughter and her 10-year-old friend. He has always maintained his innocence, but has exhausted all of his appeals. The only survivor of the murders — the couple’s 8-year-old son — told police that the killers were three or four white men. Kevin’s supporters say authorities, instead, focused all their attention on Kevin Cooper, who is black. Kevin’s supporters say the San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department tampered with DNA evidence on a t-shirt — which Kevin says he never wore — in order to frame him for the murders. They want that the DNA from that shirt to be re-tested, and now Kim is joining them in making that plea.

Khloe Kardashian brought her 2-month-old daughter True back home to LA yesterday, but was it with or without Tristan Thompson? She posted a picture of True in her car seat with a “Happy Father’s Day” message. It looked like Tristan was holding his daughter’s hand, and that may or may not have been the extent of his Father’s Day interaction with his baby girl. Khloe posted pictures of her homecoming presents, which included a bouquet of balloons for Khloe and True from Kylie and Stormi and some cute cookies with True’s face all over them.

Beyonce and Jay-Z dropped a surprise album on Saturday — “Everything is Love.” At first, it was only available on Tidal, but now you can stream it on Spotify and download it from Amazon Music. The album was recorded under the name The Carters. It features 9 tracks which cover everything from their broken and now repaired marriage to their friendships to rumors that Jay-Z has a love child. Remember how Kanye West said he was upset that Jay and Bey didn’t go to his wedding. Jay-Z rapped on the song “Friends,” “I ain’t going to nobody for nothin’ when me and my wife beefin.’ I don’t care if the house on fire, I’m dyin’, (BLANK), I ain’t leavin’.” And as far as having a secret child, Jay maintains he only has his three kids with Beyonce. On “Heard About Us,” Jay-Z says, “For the thousandth time, the kid ain’t mine.”
