Aubrey O’Day dumps Pauly D… Happy celebrity couple news… Is Whoopi Goldberg ready to bail on “The View”?… 50 Cent’s controversial video… and Prince was set to meet with addiction doctor
We were told not to ask about his baby, but we should’ve asked about his girlfriend!! Well, as it turns out, Pauly D is no longer dating Aubrey O’Day. They started dating last year after meeting on E!’s upcoming reality show “Famously Single.” A source told Page Six that she dumped him because Pauly was cheating. Apparently somebody sent Aubrey screen grabs of conversations he was having with another girl, so she broke it off. One of Pauly’s friends says he was never that serious about her anyway. He’s already deleted all of her pictures from his Instagram.
In happy couple news, David Hasselhoff is getting married for the third time. He finally popped the question to his girlfriend Hayley Roberts, whom he met in Wales five years ago while judging “Britain’s Got Talent.” David said he waited to propose to her because he thought he was too old for her. He’s 63 and she’s 36. And congratulations to Eddie Murphy on the birth of his 9th child! His girlfriend Paige Butcher gave birth to little Izzy Oona Murphy yesterday and everybody is doing great.
Whoopi Goldberg’s contract with “The View” is up at the end of this season, and sources say she’s ready to bail. She’s telling friends that she’s simply fed up, but network bosses are trying to convince her to stay. One insider says Raven-Symone probably won’t be coming back. But is that her decision or theirs? Meantime, Michael Strahan’s last day on “Live! With Kelly and Michael” is next Friday, May 13. That first Monday after his exit, Jimmy Kimmel will be sitting next to Kelly. There will be a random rotation of guest hosts until that spot is permanently filled.
50 Cent posted a video mocking an airport janitor, calling him out for not doing his job well enough and saying he seemed to be high on drugs. It turns out this 19-year-old man he was tormenting suffers from Asperger’s syndrome and extreme social anxiety. After the Twitterverse pummeled 50 for his rude behavior, he took the video down. And now, 50 has apologized for what he did. He released a statement saying, “While the incident at the airport resulted from an unfortunate misunderstanding, I am truly sorry for offending the young man. It was certainly not my intent to insult him or the disability community, which is a source of great strength in America. I have apologized personally to him and his family.” Media reports said the family was lawyering up and demanding money, but an attorney for the family told Page Six that they would be satisfied with a “sincere apology.”
A California doctor says he was scheduled to meet with Prince on April 22 — the day after he died — to help him fight his addiction to painkillers. Dr. Howard Kornfeld is an authority on opioid addiction treatment, and according to a Minneapolis attorney working with the Kornfeld family, the doctor was called because Prince was dealing with a “grave medical emergency.” Reportedly, Dr. Kornfeld couldn’t meet with Prince on April 21, so he sent his son to Paisley Park to do an initial evaluation and discuss up with a treatment plan. In fact, Dr. Kornfeld’s son reportedly was one of the people at Prince’s home when his body was found. It’s being reported that Dr. Kornfeld’s son is the one who actually called 911.
