Kanye West Gave Kim A Million-Dollar Check

70 new emojis from Apple… The Coachella Music Festival lineup… Four suspected burglars busted… Yeezy sneakers banned… and Kanye West gave Kim Kardashian West a million-dollar check

Apple has announced they’ll likely add 70 new emojis later this month. Beta testers and developers who update to iOS 12.1 may already start seeing them and THEY ARE COOL. There’s a llama, a raccoon, a lobster, a mosquito, a bagel, salt, a cupcake, luggage, a compass, a hiking boot, a softball, a frisbee, superheroes and MORE — including the redheaded and bald-headed emojis!

The 2019 Coachella Music Festival is still six months away, but the headliners for the festival may have just been revealed! According to a report, Childish Gambino will perform on Friday night, Justin Timberlake will headline on Saturday, and Kanye West will close out the festival on Sunday night. Kanye was previously a headliner in 2011. Coachella happens over two weekends next year – April 12-14 and April 19-21.

LA police busted a crew of four suspected burglars who broke into the homes of Rihanna, LA Rams wide receiver Robert Woods and baseball player Yasiel Puig. Police say they even had a list of more potential targets, including the homes of LeBron James, Matt Damon, and Viola Davis. They’d target homes based on their social media posts and their touring and travel schedules and strike when nobody was home. Two of the suspects are 19…one is 18….and one is the 18-year-old’s MOM, 34-year-old Ashley Jennifer Hall. Police found $50K in cash and jewelry in the suspects’ homes. Officers are looking for more suspects.

ESPN is reporting that the NBA will likely ban Kanye’s new Yeezy basketball sneakers, which were expected to show up on the court this season. It’s not because of the controversy surrounding Kanye lately. It’s because the NBA thinks the reflective tape Kanye added to the heels may be too distracting for the audience.

Kim Kardashian was a guest on Ashley Graham’s podcast yesterday and revealed what Kanye gave her for Mother’s Day. She said a brand that sometimes knocks off Yeezy’s clothing line asked her to do one social media post featuring their clothes in exchange for a million dollars. But Kim asked Kanye about it and he told her he’d rather she not, so she didn’t. Then on Mother’s Day, Kanye sent her flowers and an envelope. Inside was a check for a million dollars along with a note that said, “Thank you for always supporting me and not posting.” And to make it even sweeter, Kanye also gave her a percentage of Yeezy.
