Box office weekend news… Zendaya dropped from Aaliyah’s Lifetime movie… Robin Thicke needs to let go… Kendra Wilkinson’s marriage falling apart… and More on Shia Labeouf’s meltdown
“Transformers: Age of Extinction” bombed with the critics, but audiences LOVED it. The movie earned $100 million at the box office this weekend, making it the top debut of the year. Coming in second was “22 Jump Street” with another $15.4 million and then “How to Train Your Dragon 2” with $13.1 million.
Zendaya has dropped out of the Lifetime movie based on the life and tragic death of Aaliyah. The network tweeted, “We are sad Zendaya will no longer portray Aaliyah. Production is currently on hold.” Zendaya hasn’t commented, but TMZ has sources who say a lot of factors played into her decision, including the negative reaction for Aaliyah’s family who believed her life story deserved to be told on the big screen and not in a made-for-TV movie.
Robin Thicke needs to let it go already. Before performing his new single at the BET Awards last night, a puffy-eyed Robin said to the crowd, “Good evening. My name is Robin Thicke. I’d like to dedicate this song to my wife and say, ‘I miss you, and I’m sorry.’ This is called ‘Forever Love.'” And then he got so caught up in the lyrics that he even had to pause for a second to wipe his drippy nose! But no matter how much public groveling that man has done, Paula still hasn’t responded….at least not publicly.
So sad to see Kendra Wilkinson’s marriage fall apart — especially right now. Instead of celebrating the arrival of her newborn baby girl, she was overseeing the removal of her husband’s things from their home — and it was on their 5th wedding anniversary!! Hank Baskett is accused of having an affair with a transexual just weeks before his wife gave birth to their daughter.
We may be witnessing another Amanda Bynes-type meltdown. Last week we all heard about Shia Labeouf being arrested after causing a disturbance at the Broadway revival of “Cabaret.” He was smoking in the theater and slapping patrons on the back of the head. And when cops arrested him, they had to put a muzzle on Shia because he was spitting on them. It turns out that earlier that same day, Shia had a run-in with a homeless man he accused of stealing his hat. He kept trying to snatch the hat away, telling the homeless man over and over, “It’s me, Shia!” And then earlier this month, Shia tried to pick a fight with a guy outside a strip club, bobbing and weaving like a boxer in the ring. And a restaurant caught him peeing on their wall outside and banned him for life.
