Foodgod robbed at gunpoint… Dwayne Johnson has agreed to purchase the XFL… Jamie Spears finally speaking out… Support for Ellen DeGeneres… and The Bachelorette Clare Crawley is being replaced
Kim Kardashian has enough to be worried about right now, and now this….Her best friend Foodgod, FKA Jonathan Cheban, was robbed at gunpoint in NJ over the weekend. Law enforcement sources told TMZ that Foodgod was standing in a friend’s driveway with his mom Sunday night when somebody walked up and asked for the time. Foodgod felt like something was off and told everyone to head inside, and that’s when the man pulled out a gun and pointed it at the head of Foodgod’s mom! Apparently, some neighbors heard the commotion and came outside, which scared the robbers off. They reportedly got away with Foodgod’s $250K watch.
Dwayne Johnson still does a lot of business deals with his ex-wife, and the two of them — along with an investment group — have bought Vince McMahon’s XFL league for $15 million. It looked like the XFL was getting off to a decent start this year, but COVID did them in. They filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in April. If a bankruptcy court approved The Rock’s offer on Friday, the deal could close by Aug. 21! Dwayne released a statement saying, “With pride and gratitude for all that I’ve built with my own two hands, I plan to apply these callouses to the XFL, and look forward to creating something special for the players, fans, and everyone involved for the love of football.” The plan is to relaunch the league, but we don’t know have a timeline for that. when exactly it’s all going down.

Britney Spears has been under a conservatorship for 12 years with her dad Jamie calling the shots for her life. With the #FreeBritney movement picking up more steam, Jamie is finally speaking out. He told The Post that this movement is a joke. He said, “All these conspiracy theorists don’t know anything. The world don’t have a clue. It’s up to the court of California to decide what’s best for my daughter. It’s no one else’s business.” As far as people saying Jamie is stealing his daughter’s money, Jamie said, “I have to report every nickel and dime spent to the court every year. How the hell would I steal something?” He also talked about the ugliness behind the movement. He said, “People are being stalked and targeted with death threats. It’s horrible. We don’t want those kinds of fans. I love my daughter. I love all my kids. But this is our business. It’s private.”
Polo player Ignacio “Nacho” Figueres felt like he finally had to say something. He posted yesterday, “I have been patiently waiting for someone with more authority than me to speak up about what a great human being (Ellen DeGeneres) is.” Nacho said that while no one is perfect, he’s been on Ellen’s show many times and that all he’s ever experienced was a happy set and saw Ellen being kind to everyone. He added, “The world has become a very dangerous place because it seems that we cannot make anything right. If I am going to be criticized for defending someone that I think deserves to be defended then so be it. We are all so scared to say what we really think and it seems that we are only relevant if we say whatever the trending social media topic is. So… We love Ellen right?” And then he tagged Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Lopez, Pink, Michelle Obama, Sean Hayes, Lady Gaga, Oprah Winfrey, Justin Timberlake and Katy Perry. Of those, only Katy has commented so far. She tweeted, “I know I can’t speak for anyone else’s experience besides my own but I want to acknowledge that I have only ever had positive takeaways from my time with Ellen & on the @theellenshow. I think we all have witnessed the light & continual fight for equality that she has brought to the world through her platform for decades. Sending you love & a hug, friend @TheEllenShow.”
The rumors are true. Clare Crawley is out and Tayshia Adams is in. Sources say that before filming began on “The Bachelorette,” one of Clare’s bachelors reached out to her and they began talking. A source told People, “By the time filming officially began, they were basically already in love. No one else stood a chance. It just because so obvious from her subsequent few dates that her heart wasn’t in it and she just wasn’t feeling it.” That’s when Clare basically locked herself in her room and refused to continue filming. Producers scrambled and came up with Plan B — fan favorite, Tayshia, who competed for Colton Underwood’s final rose during his season and then went on to “Bachelor in Paradise.” A source said that all the guys Clare eliminated will be asked to come back and start over with Tayshia.
