Lamar Odom’s autobiography… Selena Gomez is opening up… Madonna fired assistant on the spot… Taylor Swift gets her day in court… and Justin Bieber apologizes to fans
Lamar Odom is writing his autobiography and he’s promising that he’ll cover EVERYTHING. And the Kardashians are worried what he means by that, but they may have to wait and find out like the rest of us because sources say he’s refused to give his ex-wife Khloe a copy of the book. A source says the Kardashians are considering their legal options, including trying to block the publisher from releasing the book.
Last October, Selena Gomez abruptly canceled her tour and went away for 90 days to be treated for her emotional health and exhaustion. Now she’s opening up to InStyle magazine about her time away, saying it was the best thing she could’ve ever done. She said she was completely cut off from the outside world, didn’t do her hair the whole time she was there, and she took part in equine therapy. And now that she’s back to her regular life, she still goes to therapy, but she’s in a “really, really healthy place.” If you want to read more, the entire interview is in InStyle’s September issue, which comes out on August 11.
In Touch magazine claims Madonna was on a flight from NY to LA when one of her assistants told her she forgot to bring along some important documents. Madonna reportedly flipped out and fired her on the spot, saying, “You’re done here. Take the next plane back to New York. You’re fired.” Afterward, some of Madonna’s other team members were joking that all future assistants should be fitted with a parachute, just in case Madonna decides to toss them off the plane.
Taylor Swift is finally getting her day in court! Four years ago, Taylor claims that this Denver DJ named David Mueller intentionally put his hand up the back of her skirt and grabbed her bottom during a backstage meet-and-greet. After she complained about it, Mueller was fired from his job and then turned around and sued Taylor! Taylor fired back with her own lawsuit against Mueller. Jury selection for the trial begins on Monday and Taylor is expected to testify. Only 32 seats will be made available for the public ever day of the trial, and they’re available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Fans are allowed to start lining up at 6am and passes will be handed out an hour later to the first 32 in line. Then an overflow room with a TV will be available for 75 more. Interesting to note, Mueller is accused of destroying evidence in the case, including his computer and iPhone, which reportedly held a recording he’d made with his boss the day after the alleged groping incident took place. But there’s one photo that remains that was taken at almost the EXACT moment Taylor claims Mueller grabbed her, and it looks pretty obvious what’s going on.
Justin Bieber posted a long message for his fans on Instagram yesterday, saying how grateful he is for all of us and explaining how he let his insecurities get the best of him at ties and how his broken relationships affected the way he treated people. But he explained that he’s not ashamed of his mistakes, he says he wants to learn from them and grow from them. He also says, “Me taking this time right now is me saying I want to be SUSTAINABLE.. I want my career to be sustainable, but I also want my mind heart and soul to be sustainable. So that I can be the man I want to be, the husband I eventually want to be and the father I want to be.” Meantime, Justin got some good news from the LAPD yesterday. He won’t face criminal charges for hitting a photographer with his truck last week. Law enforcement sources told TMZ that the photographer was in the wrong for standing in the street, and Justin was being blinded by the bright lights other paparazzi were shining in his face.
