Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom are officially divorced… 50 Cent testified in court… Chris Brown blocked from leaving the Philippines… Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert rumors… and The Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj Twitter feud
It’s been 18 months since she filed for divorce, but very quietly this past Friday Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom signed and filed the papers to end their marriage. All that’s left now is a judge’s signature and it’s official. Meantime, Khloe is getting her own talk show on the FYI network. They’re calling it “Kocktails with Khloe” and it’s basically Khloe hanging out in the kitchen and sitting down at the dinner table with celebrity guests and friends for cooking, conversations and party games. Whoo-hoo! Look for it later this year.
50 Cent testified in court that he’s broke, and when he shows off all his expensive toys and jewelry on social media? That’s just for show! In May, “Forbes” magazine reported 50 was worth an estimated $155 million, but 50 told the jury he has no idea where they came up with that figure because he’s only worth about $4.4 million. And that’s not enough to cover the $5 million judgment against him for leaking that woman’s sex tape online.
Chris Brown played a show in the Philippines last night and was supposed to fly out for his next show in Hong Kong this morning. But the Philippine Department of Justice has blocked Chris from leaving the country! Apparently, Chris was supposed to play a show there last NYE but was a no-show. The promoters of that concert were granted an order to bar Chris from leaving the country until they’re paid back the money they’re owed.
When news broke that Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert were getting divorced, almost immediately the rumor was out there that Miranda cheated on him with country artist Chris Young. Chris says to leave him out of it! He tweeted yesterday, “I don’t normally address gossip but in this case I will. My name has been mentioned as a contributing factor in Blake and Miranda’s divorce. That is totally FALSE. They are both my friends and I would not betray that friendship. Just wanted to clear that up. Love you guys.” TMZ is reporting that Blake actually thought Miranda was cheating on him with another country artist, not Chris. And Miranda’s camp is putting it out there now that Blake’s the one who cheated on her with a “famous country singer.”
After MTV announced the nominations for Video of the Year and Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda” didn’t make the cut, she went off on Twitter, saying, “Anaconda was a CULTURAL PHENOMENON and it didn’t even receive a nomination?? Whatever….” She continued, “If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year.” Seeing that nominees for Video of the Year included Taylor Swift, Beyonce and three men, Taylor took that personally. She tweeted, “I’ve done nothing but love & support you. It’s unlike you to pit women against each other. Maybe one of the men took your slot..” Nicki replied, “Huh? U must not be reading my tweets. Didn’t say a word about u. I love u just as much. But u should speak on this. @taylorswift13.” And not one to let it go, Nicki then tweeted, “@taylorswift13 I’m still confused as to why u just tweeted me when I made it abundantly clear…” Trying to put out the fire, Taylor tweeted back, “If I win, please come up with me!! You’re invited to any stage I’m ever on.” And then Nicki proceeded to retweet everyone who agreed with her and slammed Taylor for making this all about her.
@NICKIMINAJ I've done nothing but love & support you. It's unlike you to pit women against each other. Maybe one of the men took your slot..
