Kanye West Goes on Political Rant During Concert

Andy Cohen’s biggest divas… Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell wedding… Bobbi Kristina’s wrongful death lawsuit… Nick Cannon is expecting a baby… and Kanye West goes on political rant during concert

Andy Cohen’s follow up to his first book is called Superficial and he’s sharing more of his private diary entries. In it, he talks about some of the guests he’s had on “Watch What Happens Live.” Apparently, Andy has had to deal with his share of divas. Sofia Vergara showed up more than an hour late to taping. Amber Rose refused to answer any questions about Kanye or the Kardashians, but Andy said she at least had a “good sense of humor about being a dud.” After Andy canceled on attending a fashion event with Naomi Campbell, she turned around and blew off his show at the very last minute. But he said the ultimate diva was Nicki Minaj, who demanded to know the Plead the Fifth questions before the show, demanded the audience to stop taking pictures of her, and rolled her eyes at every photo they decided to use of her. Andy said he left the show that night feeling upset about how things went.

Will Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell ever make it down the aisle? It’s super complicated, especially after Ben called off the wedding! On their Freeform reality show, Ben told Lauren, “I feel like we have so much to figure out that it’s hard for me at this point to really feel comfortable getting married.” She asked if he was calling off the wedding and he said yes, but, “I’m not leaving you. I’m not. Don’t think that for a second.” Lauren said later, “If Ben needs a little more time to feel comfortable getting married, he should really have it because in the end, it won’t matter if this wedding’s a little bit later.” But WILL it be a little bit later? Or never?? As of now, the couple is still together.

While testifying in the family’s wrongful death lawsuit against Nick Gordon, Bobby Brown says if she had lived, his daughter Bobbi Kristina had unlimited earning potential. But he blamed her boyfriend Nick for robbing her of that potential and for helping her take her life. Taking everything into consideration — the abuse, the pain and suffering, the loss of life, her net worth and future potential income — a judge has ordered Nick to pay Bobbi Kristina’s estate $36 million. But this may be more about principle than anything else because Nick doesn’t have any money.

Nick Cannon is expecting a baby with former Miss Arizona USA Brittany Bell. He confirmed the news to The Breakfast Club radio show. Nick said that while he and Brittany are no longer a couple, he wouldn’t call her his “ex.” Nick said, Mariah is his last “ex.” He said, “Everybody else is people that I’ve known, loved and cared for.” Nick also said by making babies, he’s doing God’s work. He said, “God said be fruitful and multiply. I’m doing the Lord’s work … Everybody get a baby! I’m passing them out!” This will be Nick’s third child. He and Mariah have 5-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe.

Last night, Kanye West was late for his concert in San Jose. Instead of kicking things off with one of his songs, he went on one of his infamous rants, this time about the presidential election. Kanye said, “I told y’all I didn’t vote, right? But if I were to vote, I would have voted on Trump.” The crowd immediately started booing, but that didn’t stop Kanye. He listed some of the reasons why he supported Trump and then started singing “Heartless.” But before he really got into it, he stopped the music and the crowd started booing again. Kanye pointed out, “I just said that I would have voted for Donald Trump and then I did a song and y’all sang it at the top of your lungs. That doesn’t mean that you’re a Trump supporter. That just means you ok with a celebrity having their own opinion. Or that someone else is ok to have their own opinion. That might not be your opinion but you can still like that person or still like that person’s music.” Kanye spent the rest of the night starting and stopping songs to talk politics, saying he will still “take position in 2020 and do it myself.”
