Season 25 winner of The Voice… Ian Ziering fight update… Kelly Rowland at Cannes… Graceland foreclosure auction… and Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs sued by model in New York federal court

Listen to “Showbiz – May 22, 2024” on Spreaker.


Season 25 is a wrap and the latest winner of The Voice has been showered with confetti. *SPOILER ALERT* As I said, I’m Alright worked for Jo Dee Messina, but not for Team Dan + Shay’s Karen Waldrup. She came in fifth. Team Legend’s Nathan Chester and Bryan Olesen took fourth and third, respectively. Team Reba had the top two, with Josh Sanders taking second and Asher HaVon winning that $100K check and a record deal. For Season 26, only Reba is returning to her spinny judgey seat. She will be joined by Gwen Stefani, and newbies Snoop Dogg and Michael Bublé.

Remember that video of Ian Ziering getting into a street brawl with members of a mini-bike gang? On New Year’s Eve, Ian and his daughter were sitting in traffic on Hollywood Boulevard when their car was surrounded by these mini-bike gangsters. Ian unwisely got out to check if there was any damage, which only escalated into violence. Of course, everybody watching this whipped out their cell phones and it was blasted all over social media. But thanks to that video evidence, all these months later the LAPD has made a couple of arrests. Twenty-year-old Jacob Esteban Hernandez was arrested for felony vandalism, and 40-year-old Angie Teresa Guizar — who is old enough to know better — was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon. But the DA’s office still gets to decide whether or not to file charges.

Call her a diva all you want. Sources close to her say Kelly Rowland DOES NOT CARE. But one thing Kelly will NOT tolerate is being disrespected, which is how she felt while walking the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival. Celebrities are basically herded like cattle down the long red carpets, guided to designated posing spots along the way. Kelly was not in the mood to be rushed, but security needed to keep things moving. So when one of the security members got a little too close, blocking her camera shot with her arm, Kelly said something too her that appeared to be along the lines of, “That isn’t necessary.” But then the security woman said something that struck Kelly’s last nerve, and she let her have it, complete with a finger wave to the woman’s face.

On Monday it was revealed that Elvis’ Graceland was set to be sold off at a THIS THURSDAY!! But his granddaughter Riley Keough immediately filed for a temporary restraining order and an injunction hearing will take place today. A Missouri-based company called Naussany Investments and Private Lending claims that back in 2018, Lisa Marie Presley signed a Deed of Trust to secure a $3.8M loan, using Graceland as collateral. When Lisa Marie passed away in January 0f 2023, Graceland passed to her daughter, Riley. But Naussany Investments claims Lisa Marie died before paying off her debt, so they want Graceland sold at auction to recoup their money. But Riley claims this is all one big fraud. In her lawsuit, Riley claims Naussany Investments isn’t a real company and her mother’s signatures were forged. On top of that, the notary listed on the loan documents denied notarizing Lisa Marie’s signature. In fact, she says she never even met her.

Another woman has come forward to accuse Diddy of drugging and sexually assaulting her. Back in 2003, Crystal McKinney was a 22-year-old model just getting started in the business. During Men’s Fashion Week, Crystal claims she met Diddy at Cipriani Downtown, and he invited her back to his studio. She claims Diddy and his friends were drinking and smoking joints, and when she took a hit from one, she believes it was laced with another drug. Crystal claims Diddy demanded she follow him to the bathroom where she was assaulted. The next thing she knew, she woke up in the back of a cab. But right after that, Crystal claims she was blackballed from the modeling industry and attempted suicide a year later. She is now suing for unspecified damages. Meantime, there was a bidding war over 50 Cent’s docuseries Diddy Do It? and Netflix has emerged as the winner.
