Weekend box office news.. Kanye West’s surprise concert… Demi Lovato and Wilmer Valderrama broke up… Why won’t Nick Cannon sign the divorce papers?… and Taylor Swift surprises a fan at his wedding
“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows” debuted in first place at the box office this weekend with $35.5 million, bumping “X-Men: Apocalypse” down to second with $22.3 million. “Me Before You” — which has quite the controversial ending — debuted in third with $18.3 million. It was another disappointing week for “Alice Through the Looking Glass,” which took in another $10.7 million for a fourth place finish. Rounding out the top five was “The Angry Birds Movie” with $9.8 million.
Kanye West caused a near-riot in New York this morning. After performing at a concert last night, he told his fans that he would be holding a surprise concert at 2am at Webster Hall, which is where that rapper Troy Ave was shot about a week ago. Kanye said the surprise show was to make up for another concert that had to be canceled because of bad weather. Crowds started pouring into the streets surrounding Webster Hall and it got ugly quick. Kim Kardashian shared a Snapchat of her husband on the phone telling someone, “Call the mayor and shut downy the block of four streets so they can have a party outside. I know it’s sold out already.” But with the surging crowd came the danger of people getting crushed. The decision was finally made to cancel the show out of safety concerns.
Demi Lovato and Wilmer Valderrama posted a joint statement on their Instagram accounts Friday, saying, “After almost 6 loving and wonderful years together, we have decided to end our relationship.” They say they’re better off as best friends. Demi is 23 and Wilmer is 36. Just do the math. Demi admitted to Entertainment Tonight earlier this year that Wilmer had some initial hesitations about their significant age difference, but she said once she got older, it was okay for them to be together.
Mariah Carey wants to be free to remarry but Nick Cannon is holding off on signing the divorce papers. The couple separated in August 2014 and Nick is actually the one who filed for divorce four months later. TMZ is reporting that they settled all the finances and they agreed to joint custody. There’s absolutely nothing left to do but sign the dotted line, but Nick just won’t do it. Their sources say he still loves Mariah and just can’t bring himself to officially let her go.
Taylor Swift surprised one of her biggest fans at his wedding on Saturday. Even though Max Singer and Kenya Smith weren’t scheduled to be married until June 4, the couple got married in the hospital so his dying mother wouldn’t miss her son’s wedding. He even danced with his mom to Taylor’s song, “Blank Space.” Max’s sister Ali wrote Taylor back in April to tell her what had happened, and the two of them worked together to pull off the big surprise. Not only did Taylor show up for Max and Kenya’s wedding in New Jersey this weekend, she sang a stripped-down version of “Blank Space” at the reception.
