Bill Cosby update… David Bowie’s estate… Lady Gaga pays tribute to David at the Grammys… Niall Horan’s new golf agency… and Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa settle feud
Bill Cosby caught another break. A couple weeks ago, he had a small victory when Renita Hill’s defamation lawsuit was dismissed. And now Chloe Goins has dropped her sexual assault lawsuit against Bill, although she could refile it at a later date. Last year, Chloe accused Bill of drugging and sexually assaulting her at the Playboy Mansion back in 2008. Cosby’s lawyers say Bill wasn’t even in California at the time she claimed this happened. In December, it was reported that both sides were in settlement talks. But then last month, the Los Angeles DA’s office rejected the case for criminal prosecution, saying there wasn’t enough evidence to move forward. But Bill still faces other lawsuits filed by several other alleged victims.
David Bowie left behind a $100 million estate. The bulk of it goes to his wife, Iman, who also gets all the couple’s properties, including their home in Manhattan. But property on Little Tonshi Mountain in Ulster County, New York, was left to his daughter. Fifteen-year-old Lexi received 25 percent of her dad’s estate, which will be held in trust until she turns 25. His son Duncan Jones also received 25 percent of his dad’s estate. David was also very generous with those who worked for him. He left his personal assistant $2 million and his child’s former nanny a million. In his will, David also requested that his remains be taken to Bali “to be cremated there in accordance with the Buddhist rituals of Bali.” But he added that if that wasn’t practical, he would like his ashes to simply be scattered over Bali.
Speaking of David, Lady Gaga will pay tribute to him at the Grammy Awards on February 15. She had already been booked to perform at the Grammys, but when David passed away, producers knew that Gaga should be the one to honor him. Reportedly, she’ll sing at least 3 or 4 of David’s songs. But before that, Gaga will be singing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl this Sunday.
Niall Horan is putting his music career on hold to launch a new golf agency! According to “The Sun,” Niall has created Modest Golf Management, hoping to attract British and Irish talent. He’s not doing this alone. He’s formed the company with those who’ve managed One Direction’s career, Modest Management. Niall is seriously in love with the game of golf. Did you know he served as Rory McIlroy’s caddy at the Masters last year??
Not only have Kim Kardashian and Amber Rose settled their differences, things seem to be all good now between Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa. After Kanye’s epic Twitter rant against Wiz over a misunderstanding involving Kim and weed, Kanye shared on social media that he and Wiz had spoken. He said it was a “great convo. All positive.” Wiz said pretty much the same thing when he was a guest on Angie Martinez’s radio show. Wiz said he and everybody else were surprised by Kanye’s reaction on Twitter, but he said, “Everything’s cool. We spoke. It’s all good.” He said that Kanye apologized for bringing Wiz and Amber’s son into the fight, and that he did accept that apology.
