Last year, Bill Cosby’s criminal conviction for sexual assault was thrown out and he was freed from prison. But yesterday, jurors in a civil trial ruled that back in 1975, Cosby sexually assaulted a then 16-year-old Judy Huth at the Playboy Mansion. Cosby did not attend the trial or testify in person, but short clips from a 2015 video deposition were played for jurors. In the deposition, Cosby denied having any sexual contact with Ms. Huth. Cosby’s attorneys did agree that he met Ms. Huth and one of her high school friends on a film set and then took them to the Playboy Mansion a few days later. She claims that’s when the assault took place. Cosby’s attorneys tried to point out inconsistencies in now 64-year-old Judy Huth’s testimony. For instance, she talked about how she played games like Donkey Kong on the day she was assaulted, but that game wasn’t released until six years later. In fact, in her closing arguments, Cosby’s lawyer started by saying, “It’s on like Donkey Kong” and finished with “Game over.” The jury sided with Judy Huth, and said Cosby must pay her half a million dollars in damages.

They say Hollywood has run out of new ideas, and based on the amount of reboots we’re about to get, “they” have a point. First up, Beavis and Butt-head. In the original version, they made fun of music videos. This go round, creator Mike Judge says Beavis and Butt-head will pass judgment on TikTok on YouTube clips. Also, a new movie, “Beavis and Butt-head Do The Universe,” premieres on Paramount+ next week. HBO Max has released the teaser for “Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin,” which debuts on July 28. The synopsis for the reboot says, “Twenty years ago, a series of tragic events almost ripped the blue-collar town of Millwood apart. Now, in present-day, a disparate group of teen girls — a brand-new set of Little Liars — find themselves tormented by an unknown Assailant and made to pay for the secret sin committed by their parents two decades ago.”

In a new interview, Billie Eilish revealed how she was able to watch several artists perform at Coachella this year thanks to one of her dancers. Billie said, “I had a body double, one of my dancers. We got a black wig and we put buns in and we gave her a mask and sunglasses. Everybody thought it was me. I put on a big black coat and a traffic vest, hood, and glasses.” Billie may try to pull the same stunt when she headlines the Glastonbury music festival in England this weekend.

Olivia Rodrigo is officially dating music executive Zack Bia, who founded the record label, Field Trip Recordings. She’s 19; he’s 26. A source says the two of them have been dating since the Super Bowl, which would’ve been right after Olivia broke up with music video producer Adam Faze. Zack’s previous relationships include Madison Beer and Madelyn Cline.

Harry Styles is a singer, an actor and now, a fashion designer. Harry teamed up with Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele to design a capsule collection called Gucci HA HA HA. Not only is that the first initial in each of their first names, Gucci said “hahaha” is how Harry and Alessandro have ended their messages to each other for years. The capsule collection has a very playful 70s vibe to it, none of which we will be able to afford. In a statement, Alessandro said, “The idea of working together came to me one day while we were talking on the phone. I proposed creating a ‘dream wardrobe’ with him, starting from those small oddities that come together in childlike visions. We ended up with a mix of aesthetics from 1970s pop and bohemian to the revision of the image of the gentleman in an over-turned memory of men’s tailoring.”
