Mel B may be a victim of spousal abuse… Angus T. Jones turned down “Two and a Half Men” series finale… Kanye West sucking up to Ashton Kutcher… Justin Bieber denies dating Hailey Baldwin… and Camille Cosby has issued a statement defending Bill
Mel B is a judge on the UK version of “The X Factor” and she missed the semi-finals performance Saturday night due to an unspecified illness. The next night she showed up with what looked like bruises on her face and arms and she wasn’t wearing her wedding ring. Now everyone is speculating that she was the victim of spousal abuse. The Sun is reporting that Mel B has moved out of the London home she shared with her husband, Stephen Belafonte. He’s blasting the abuse allegations on Twitter, calling them “disgusting” and “untrue.”
Dish Nation is reporting that “Two and a Half Men” creator Chuck Lorre approached Angus T. Jones about returning for the series finale, but Angus turned him down flat. Despite making $350K per episode, Angus walked away from the show two years ago due to his religious convictions. A source told Dish Nation that Angus’ heart isn’t in acting at the moment because he’s focused on giving talks about the Seventh-Day Adventist Church.
Kanye West reportedly has been sucking up to Ashton Kutcher, hoping Ashton will introduce him to all of his connections in Silicon Valley. But Dish Nation is reporting that Ashton is basically showing Kanye the hand. A source says Kanye has been trying to get investors for his creative company, Donda, for the past couple of years and that he wants to be bigger than Apple. But the problem is, nobody — including Ashton – really understands what Donda is. Kanye talks about it like it’s a really big deal, but he can’t articulate and explain his big ideas effectively. When he first started Donda almost 3 years ago, Kanye said the vision was “to dream of, create, advertise, and produce products driven equally by emotional want and utilitarian need…to marry our wants and needs.” Um…..what?
Justin Bieber denies he’s dating model Hailey Baldwin, the 18-year-old daughter of Stephen Baldwin and one of Kendall Jenner’s BFFs. Rumors to the contrary must’ve gotten pretty bad because Justin posted a picture of the two of the on Instagram with the caption, “People are crazy. I’m super single and this is my good friend u would know otherwise.” Hailey tweeted, “hope that clarifies everything for everyone 🙂 rumors are silly!” So are death threats to people who are rumored to be dating Justin Bieber. Back off, Beliebers!!
After dozens of accusations against her husband, Camille Cosby has issued a statement defending Bill. She said, “I met my husband, Bill Cosby, in 1963, and we were married in 1964. The man I met, and fell in love with, and whom I continue to love, is the man you all knew through his work. He is a kind man, a generous man, a funny man, and a wonderful husband, father and friend. He is the man you thought you knew.”
“A different man has been portrayed in the media over the last two months. It is the portrait of a man I do not know. It is also a portrait painted by individuals and organizations whom many in the media have given a pass. There appears to be no vetting of my husband’s accusers before stories are published or aired. An accusation is published, and immediately goes viral.”
“We all followed the story of the article in the Rolling Stone concerning allegations of rape at the University of Virginia. The story was heart-breaking, but ultimately appears to be proved to be untrue. Many in the media were quick to link that story to stories about my husband — until that story unwound.”
“None of us will ever want to be in the position of attacking a victim. But the question should be asked — who is the victim?”
