Sony Pictures’ security breach… Christmas gift for Harry Potter fans… Floyd Mayweather’s friend involved in a tragic murder-suicide… Is Kate Hudson dating Derek Hough?… and Drake gets punched in the face by Diddy
Hackers went deep into Sony Pictures’ business, and the studio has called an all-hands-on-deck meeting this Friday to figure out how they’re going to deal with the situation. This group calling themselves the GOP — Guardians of Peace — has released more private employee data, including actors’ phone numbers and the aliases they use when traveling. Curious to know the fake names Tom Hanks was using up until this security breach? He often checked into hotels under the names “Harry Lauder” or “Johnny Madrid.” Tobey Maguire liked using “Neil Deep.” Natalie Portman would check in under “Lauren Brown” and Jude Law like to be “Mr. Perry.” Ice Cube kept it real by checking in under his real name, O’Shea Jackson.
J.K. Rowling has a special Christmas gift for all you Harry Potter fans. In a newsletter to members of the fan site, Pottermore, J.K. announced that beginning December 12, on each of the 12 days leading up to Christmas, she’ll release a new story expounding on the wizarding world of Harry Potter! Each new installment will be posted at 8am ET/ 7am CT. According to The Telegraph, one of the 12 stories will focus on Harry’s former school rival, Draco Malfoy. And J.K. promises the stories will include “moments from Half-Blood Prince, shiny gold Galleons and even a new potion or two.”
A tragic murder-suicide at an apartment complex near The Grove in LA yesterday. Stephanie Moseley was a backup dancer who worked with several famous artists, including Usher and Chris Brown. She also starred on the VH1 show, “Hit the Floor.” Stephanie was married to a rapper named Earl Hayes, and TMZ has sources who say that two years ago, Earl left Stephanie because he believed she was having an affair with Trey Songz. They got back together, but sources say Earl never got over it and constantly brought up Trey’s name. Earl was good friends with Floyd Mayweather and was face-timing with him yesterday, getting more and more angry because he believed his wife was being unfaithful. Floyd was trying to talk him down, but there was nothing he could do to stop what happened next. Neighbors heard shots ring out and called police. The SWAT team arrived and found the bodies. Trey hasn’t spoken to the press, but he tweeted last night, “R.I.P baby girl. Once an angel on earth, now watching over us from Heaven. You’ll b missed but never forgotten. Love.”
Kate Hudson and Matt Bellamy have called off their 3-year engagement, and Us Weekly reports that she’s already dating “Dancing With the Stars” pro Derek Hough! Kate and Matt were last seen together on November 21 at her mom Goldie Hawn’s charity event. But guess who else was there….Derek!! Last year, you may remember Kate did an interview with In Shape magazine, talking about how she’d been ballroom dancing with Derek and perhaps that’s where their love affair began…Kate and Matt have a 3-year-old son, Bingham. She has 10-year-old son Ryder with her ex-husband, Chris Robinson.
Drake has had a rough few days! First Chris Brown called him out on Instagram, accusing him of hooking up with Karreuche Tran while he was locked away in prison. Chris later apologized to Karreuche, but I’m not so sure he got around saying he was sorry to Drake. And then Sunday night in Miami, Drake was partying at LIV nightclub in Miami when he got into an argument with Diddy, who was upset with him over music rights. They took it outside and that’s when, sources say, Diddy yelled, “You will never disrespect me!” and then punched Drake in the face! Sources say Drake was stunned, but not knocked out. Drake reportedly went to the hospital to be treated for a dislocated shoulder, but Diddy went back inside the club to party with his son.
