Nick Gordon visits Bobbi Kristina’s gravesite… Josh Duggar goes to rehab… Maria Menounos stirring up trouble… Rosie O’Donnell’s daughter left home again… and Jennifer Lawrence & Amy Schumer writing screenplay together
Bobbi Kristina Brown’s sorta brother/ex-boyfriend/pretend husband Nick Gordon was barred from her funeral, but he made a “secret pilgrimage” to her gravesite where he was photographed kissing the tombstone and breaking down in tears. Page Six is reporting that the National Enquirer paid Nick $40K to let them “secretly” catch him grieving. And then the video was licensed to Entertainment Tonight, which ran the story last night. A source says Nick is broke and can’t afford to defend himself in this $10 million lawsuit filed against him by Bobbi Kristina’s family. So all the money he pocketed for the gravesite visit is going towards his defense fund.
What do you do when you’re publicly disgraced? You go to rehab. And that’s exactly what Josh Duggar has done. After being exposed for having two Ashley Madison accounts, Josh has checked himself into a long-term treatment center where he’s reportedly being treated for his sex addiction. We hear it’s a faith-based rehab center. Josh’s parents released a statement yesterday, saying, “As parents we are so deeply grieved by our son’s decisions and actions. His wrong choices have deeply hurt his precious wife and children and have negatively affected so many others. He has also brought great insult to the values and faith we hold dear. Yesterday Josh checked himself into a long-term treatment center. For him it will be a long journey toward wholeness and recovery. We pray that in this he comes to complete repentance and sincere change. In the meantime, we will be offering our love, care and devoted support to Anna and our grandchildren as she also receives counsel and help for her own heart and future. During this time we continue to look to God—He is our rock and comfort. We ask for your continued prayers for our entire family.’
Since joining E!, that Maria Menounos is stirring up all sorts of trouble! First there was the ongoing feud between Giuliana and Maria, which was only made worse when Maria took her E! News spot once Giuliana left. And now Page Six is reporting that there’s bad blood between Maria and E! correspondent Catt Sadler, who isn’t happy that Maria is eating into her screen time. Of course, Maria’s rep says there’s no truth to any of it.
A couple weeks after running away from home and turning up at the home of an alleged heroin dealer, Rosie O’Donnell’s teenage daughter Chelsea has left home again. Chelsea turned 18 on Monday and decided she wants to go live with her birth mom — the woman who claims Rosie stole her baby from her all those years ago. Back in March, Deanna Micoley told the National Enquirer, “I may not have been the best mother back then. I did drugs and I have a criminal record because of it. But I surely didn’t deserve to have my baby stolen from me!” TMZ is reporting that Rosie advised Chelsea not to go, but can’t stop her since she’s an adult now. But! Rosie did cut her off financially and refused to give Chelsea her birth certificate and social security card.
Jennifer Lawrence loved Amy Schumer so much in the movie “Trainwreck” that she wanted to be best friends with her! So how did she make that happen? She emailed Amy and basically said, “I’m in love with you!” They’ve only been hanging out a couple of months, but they’ve already been on vacation together and they’re even writing a screenplay together!! Jennifer told a reporter that they’ve almost done with the script, which has them playing sisters.
