Harry Potter is back in theaters… Tori Spelling’s credit card bills… Toni Braxton treated for lupus… Demi Lovato bashed Taylor Swift… and Kim Kardashian robbery may have been an ‘inside’ job
Huge news for diehard Harry Potter fans! In honor of J.K. Rowling’s upcoming “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” all eight Harry Potter movies are back in theaters for one week starting October 13. And this is the first time the first two movies in the franchise — “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” and “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets” — will be shown in Imax theaters. Some of the stars of the movies will even show up in person at theaters in LA and London.
Tori Spelling says she can’t help it. She was raised rich and likes to live rich, even if she can no longer afford it. Now Tori’s been ordered to pay American Express almost $39K in unpaid credit card bills. The company had to finally sue her because she missed her payments for months, and when she finally did send in a check for $1070, it bounced. In addition to the credit card debt, back in July Tori and her husband Dean McDermott were hit with a tax lien for over $259K. When her dad Aaron Spelling died in 2006, Tori inherited only $800K, which she obviously blew through very quickly.
Toni Braxton is back home in LA after being hospitalized in Atlanta where she was treated for her lupus. Her manager said, “She was not in serious condition, though lupus is a horrible, terrible disease and must be monitored at all times.” Toni was diagnosed with lupus six years ago. She says the toughest part of battling the disease is when she has to perform. Toni begins rehearsals for her upcoming “The Hits” tour in a few days.
Demi Lovato bashed Taylor Swift in a new interview with Glamour magazine, saying, “To be honest, and this will probably get me in trouble, I don’t see anybody in any sort of squad that has a normal body. It’s kind of this false image of what people should look like. And what they should be like, and it’s not real.” Glamour then commented, “Well, there are many kinds of ‘normal’ bodies. I think what you’re getting at is there’s just one type of body in that squad.” Demi responded, “It’s not realistic. And I think that having a song and a video about tearing Katy Perry down, that’s not women’s empowerment.”
French police suspect that Kim Kardashian’s robbery was an inside job and that the five robbers were tipped off that Kim was without her security guard at the time she was robbed. According to a source, one or more of the armed robbers could have been a bodyguard who had protected Kim before in Paris. Her current bodyguard, Pascal Douvier, who was protecting her sisters Kourtney and Kendall at the time, has been questioned but he is not believed to be involved in any way. The source says French police also believe that the concierge may have been tied up just to throw people off. Much of what happened reportedly was caught on hotel security cameras and police are reviewing that and talking to all the hotel employees and the bodyguards who’ve worked for Kim at any point. Sources privy to Kim’s interview with the police say Kim was lying in bed when she heard footsteps pounding up the stairs of her two story apartment. She reportedly looked up and saw at least one masked man and another wearing a police hat through a sliding glass door. She immediately rolled off the bed and tried calling her bodyguard on her cell phone, but before she could finish, one of the men grabbed the phone from her hands. They then zip-tied Kim’s hands with plastic handcuffs and duct tape. When one of the men grabbed her by the ankles, Kim reportedly told police that she believed she was about to be raped. But instead, the robbers duct-taped her ankles, picked her up and put her in the bathtub. That’s when she started screaming, begging them not to kill her because she had babies at home. Kim said the robbers only spoke French and the only thing she could understand was when they kept saying, “Ring! Ring!” She knew they were after her 15-carat engagement ring and she told them where it was. But when she continued to cry and beg for her life. the men then duct-taped her mouth shut. While all this was happening, one of Kim’s friends was actually sleeping downstairs, heard all the screaming and banging around, locked herself in the bathroom and called Kourtney and the bodyguard Pascal, telling them to hurry back because something was wrong. Pascal reportedly got back to the apartment 2 minutes after the robbers left. Sources say the entire incident took about 6 minutes.
