Mama June’s new boy toy… The Weeknd dropped $70M on a Bel-Air mansion… OnlyFans will ban pornography… Destiny’s Child update… and Britney Spears’ dogs were taken from herListen to “Showbiz – Aug 20, 2021” on Spreaker.
Mama June was spiraling out of control on drugs and her family put a lot of the blame on her bad influence boyfriend Geno Doak. Well, Mama June finally started cleaning up her act. She kicked Geno to the curb, got her teeth fixed, and now she’s reportedly got a new toyboy — a 24-year-old TikTok star named Jordan McCollum, who is also a recovering addict. According to “The Sun,” 42-year-old Mama June is completely smitten by this sweet young thing, and has been showering him with gifts. They say she’s paying the rent on a 2-bedroom home for Jordan in Alabama. She also paid to furnish it. And a source told “The Sun” that Mama June bought him a 2013 Nissan Altima, but when that one stopped working, she bought him a 2019. Both cars set her back $40K. Jordan posted photos of the first car she gave him, captioning them, “So someone very special to me bought me a car today!” Less than a month later, he shared a picture of the second Altima, captioning it, “Late update but Sally had a bad transmission so everyone meet Spade!” Mama June commented, “You deserve it, and that’s a sexy car.” The source says Mama June really wants to go public with their relationship, but Jordan is trying to “keep things more low-key.”
The Weeknd just made one of the biggest real estate deals in L.A. this year. He bought a massive mansion overlooking the Bel-Air Country Club for a reported $70M. And the house wasn’t even up for sale! The Weeknd’s real estate agents found the owners and worked out a deal. The former owners bought the home in 2015 for $21.4M and spent 3 years renovating the place, adding 13K-square-feet of living space. The now 33K-square-foot home sits on 1.6 acres and features 9 bedrooms, a spa with a sauna, a Turkish bath, a gym, a movie theater, a music studio, a sports court, an indoor pool, and an outdoor infinity pool with a waterfall.
Over the last few years, OnlyFans has blown up. It went more mainstream once celebrities like Cardi B, Bhad Bhabie, Bella Thorne, Tyga, Amber Rose, Blac Chyna, and Trey Songz joined the site. If you’re not familiar, OnlyFans is a place where someone can charge a monthly fee in exchange for exclusive content. Usually that content leans towards very adult peep shows. But yesterday, OnlyFans announced that starting Oct. 1, they are banning sexually explicit content. The company said it’s making the changes “to comply with the requests of our banking partners and payout providers…In order to ensure the long-term sustainability of the platform, and to continue to host an inclusive community of creators and fans, we must evolve our content guidelines.” Creators will continue to be allowed to post content containing nudity, but it has to fall under the guidelines of OnlyFans’ Acceptable Use Policy. This wasn’t a big surprise to people in the adult entertainment industry. Powerful anti-porn and anti-sex workers groups have been threatening to stop doing business with major credit card companies unless they stop working with adult websites. This strategy has already worked on some of the biggest adult websites, so smaller sites like OnlyFans didn’t stand a chance.
When some updates were made to Destiny’s Child social media, fans started freaking out that new music is coming. But Beyonce’s daddy Mathew Knowles — who’s still the official manager of Destiny Child — told TMZ there are no plans for the ladies to reunite or release new music. He said the record label was just freshening up the account. We’ll find out later if he’s lying. Meantime, Beyonce’s Ivy Park x Adidas collaboration is releasing the Rodeo collection this afternoon on Adidas.com. The line includes lots of cow print, skin-tight catsuits and denim chaps. And for the first time, Ivy Park is offering a children’s collection and Beyonce’s kids Blue Ivy, Sir and Rumi are modeling some of the pieces.
Destiny’s Child fans shouldn’t lose their breath just yet over rumors the group’s getting back together, because their manager says there’s nothing in the works. https://t.co/p3eS2YBbtg— TMZ (@TMZ) August 20, 2021
TMZ got the intel on the drama going on at Britney Spears’ home. A couple weeks ago, one of Britney’s dogs got sick and the dog sitter, who also happens to be a nurse, took the sick dog and Britney’s other dog to the vet and never brought them home. Apparently, the dog sitter decided Britney was neglecting the animals and kept them. So on Aug. 10, Britney called the sheriff’s department to report a theft, but when they arrived at her home, she sent them away. Well, this past Monday morning, Britney’s dogs still weren’t back and she didn’t know where they were. She reportedly confronted her housekeeper, who said she had been concerned the dogs were being neglected and showed Britney photos she’d taken on her phone after one of her dogs threw up. That’s when Britney lost it. She accused the housekeeper of sending the pictures to her dad to then called the dog sitter to take the dogs away. And Britney was also upset because the housekeeper is not allowed to take photos in her home. That’s when there was a struggle and Britney knocked the phone out of the housekeeper’s hand, but the housekeeper insists Britney hit her arm which caused her to drop the phone. Either way, the housekeeper filed a battery report and the incident is under investigation. Meantime, Britney is still waiting to get her dogs back.
