I don’t often do sports in the Showbiz Top 5, but how can we not talk about this! According to ESPN, the deal was done yesterday and Dak Prescott has agreed to a 4-year, $160M deal to stay with the Cowboys, which includes a league-record of $126M, guaranteed. ESPN also reports that Dak will make $42M per season for the first 3 years of the deal, and could make a total of $164M with incentives. The NFL Network added that Dak also got a signing bonus of $66M, and he has a no-trade clause. The Cowboys will make the formal announcement of Dak’s big contract at a news conference tomorrow.

What do you do when you lose temporary custody of your kids? Well, if you’re “Southern Charm” star Kathryn Dennis, you fly to Miami to have some fun with your boyfriend. According to documents obtained by “The Sun,” a SC judge has ruled that Kathryn will have supervised visitation with her kids, Kensie and Saint, every other weekend. Their daddy Thomas Ravenel will have primary custody until a permanent decision is made by the court. In court documents, Thomas said a mutual friend informed him about a recent trip Kathryn took with their kids and her boyfriend, saying, “He informed me that he witnessed a lot of cocaine use during this trip and that Kathryn had left cocaine within grasp of the children, which he thought was dangerous.” In her response, Kathryn said, “I do not use cocaine so naturally I have not left any out for our children to access.” She also accused Thomas of being a drunk and hiring a private investigator to spy on her. Either way, she lost this round in court and headed straight to Miami with her man.

Kanye West’s former bodyguard says he’s been approached by two different studios who want to do a documentary about his time working for Kanye. Steve Stanulis told Page Six, “They see this as a ’48 Hours’ for real, or a ‘Lethal Weapon’ for real.” Steve worked for Kanye in 2016, which was an exceptionally tumultuous time for Kanye and he says he as tons of stories. Steve has already been threatened with a couple of lawsuits, but nothing has ever come of them. So he told Page Six that the proposed documentary “starts off with $30 million lawsuit, and works backwards, with all the craziness.” Steve said people are always asking him to share stories about Kanye, so doing the documentary means nobody has to ever ask him about it again.

Elon Musk has not only moved to Texas, he wants to create his own city. Yesterday, Elon shared a rare photo of him, his girlfriend Grimes and their son 10-month-old son X Æ A-Xii. He captioned it, “Starbase.” Apparently, Elon is setting the wheels in motion as he looks to incorporate Boca Chica Village, a small town along the Gulf Coast, and rename it Starbase. This is where Elon’s company SpaceX is developing and launching prototypes of its Starship spacecraft, so the name make a lot more sense when you look at it that way.

If you were hoping all the Prince Harry and Meghan Markle drama would lead to another season of “The Crown” on Netflix, I’m hear to crush your dreams…or at least postpone the for maybe a couple decades. “The Crown” creator Peter Morgan told The Hollywood Reporter that he has a “20-year rule,” meaning he will only write about events that happened at least 20 years ago. “The Crown” will end after 6 seasons, meaning we’ll see the Royal Family drama from the early 2000s, but then that will be it.
