Erin Andrews is suing… What does a Drake performance cost?… Beyonce doesn’t need cops… Demi Lovato backtracks… and Dr. Luke finally speaks out about Kesha’s allegations
Back in 2008, this pervert named Michael David Barrett would follow Erin Andrews around the country and then film her through her hotel room’s peep hole. He ended up being sentenced to 30 months in jail. Well, now Erin is suing the Nashville Marriott at Vanderbilt, its owners and managers because they actually told this creep what room Erin was staying in and then let him book a room right next to hers. She’s asking for $75 million.
You can have Drake perform at your kid’s birthday party for the right price. He was Gigi Ashkenazy’s special present at her Bat Mitzvah party in the Rainbow Room Saturday night. According to Page Six, Drake sang a handful of his hit songs and once he was done, about half the crowd split. According to TMZ, Drake charges between $300K-600K for private shows. It’s not like Gigi’s daddy couldn’t afford it. Mr. Ashkenazy’s is a real estate bigwig whose firm owns high price properties including the Marriott New York East Side.
Louis Farrakhan wants Beyonce to rest her pretty head. If the police refuse to protect her when she’s on her Formation World Tour, the Nation of Islam will. Speaking at the Nation of Islam’s Savior’s Day event in Detroit, Farrakhan said, “You gonna picket? You’re not gonna offer police protection? But the F.O.I. will.” The Fruit of Islam is the Nation of Islam’s security agency.
Demi Lovato is back peddling a bit after her social media rant that clearly slammed Taylor Swift for not only giving Kesha $250K but for also being “politically correct 24/7.” She went back online and said, “As most people know, I tend to get fired up about the things I believe in, and although my heart and intentions are always in the right place, unfortunately sometimes my passion gets the best of me and causes me to say things that I probably shouldn’t say…. Everyone has their own way of giving support to others, and at the end of the day, helping victims is all that matters. Ultimately, the message I want people to hear is it’s okay to come forward with your abuse and if you do decide to take action, you are not alone.”
Speaking of the Kesha situation, Dr. Luke is finally speaking out. He went on his own little Twitter rant last night, saying, “Until now I haven’t commented on the lawsuits, which should be resolved in court not here on Twitter. It’s a shame that there’s so much speculation out there basing itself on so little information. The only truly objective person who knows the facts is the judge. The judge did not rule in Kesha’s favor on Friday. I understand why people without all the information are speaking out. I can appreciate their compassion. But lives can get ruined when there’s a rush to judgment before all the facts come out. Look what happened at UVA, Duke etc. Of course any sane person is against rape and sexual assault but everybody who is commenting is doing so without knowledge or facts. They are getting behind an allegation only – motivated by money. I didn’t rape Kesha and I have never had sex with her. Kesha and I were friends for many years and she was like my little sister. Kesha has denied under oath the horrible allegations now being made against me. Here is the testimony. ‘Q. Did Dr. Luke ever give you a roofie? A. No. Q. Okay, when — Did you ever have an intimate relationship with Gottwald? A. No.’ Mark Geragos (kesha’s attorney) represented Scott Peterson and Chris Brown. How can he pretend he cares about women’s rights? I have 3 sisters, a daughter, and a son with my girlfriend, and a feminist mom who raised me right. It’s sad that she would turn a contract negotiation into something so horrendous and untrue. But I feel confident when this is over the lies will be exposed and the truth will prevail.”
