Johnny Depp has filed a $50 million defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife Amber Heard, saying she made up stories about being abused by him in order to advance her career. He points to the op-ed piece Amber wrote for the Washington Post about being a victim of domestic abuse. She didn’t name Johnny by name, but everybody knew she was referring to him. Johnny says he suffered financial losses as a result of her accusations, including being dropped as Captain Jack Sparrow in the never-ending “Pirates of the Caribbean” movies. In his lawsuit, he also claims that Amber began having an affair with Elon Musk a month after they were married.

At the party celebrating her cover of DuJour magazine, Kate Beckinsale was asked by Extra what she likes in a man. She said, “Funny. I like funny.” And that explains why she’s been dating Pete Davidson for the past month or so. They were first seen getting real flirty together at a Golden Globes after-party in January. Nobody had any photographic proof, but on February 1, she was Pete’s date to one of his stand-up shows in West Hollywood. We hadn’t seen anything much of these two until this weekend. Kate and Pete were seen holding hands outside the SNL after-party this weekend and on Sunday, they were making out in the stands at the Rangers hockey game.

On Friday, we finally got to see Jordyn Woods explain herself on Red Table Talk with Jada Pinkett Smith. Jordyn told Jada that she put herself in a bad situation Tristan Thompson, but nothing too terrible happened. She did sit on the arm of a chair with her legs dangling over his…And she didn’t realize it was 7am until she walked outside and saw that the sun came up…but that’s when Tristan leaned over and gave her a kiss on the lips. Nothing passionate. No tongue. But it was a kiss on the lips. Khloe Kardashian responded immediately, lashing out on Twitter, “Why are you lying Jordyn? If you’re going to try and save yourself by going public, INSTEAD OF CALLING ME PRIVATELY TO APOLOGIZE FIRST, at least be HONEST about your story. BTW, you ARE the reason my family broke up!” The next day — after she calmed down — Khloe tweeted a retraction, saying that while she was hurt by someone she loves and has treated like a little sister, “Jordyn is not to be blamed for the breakup of my family. This was Tristan’s fault.”

When the four-hour “Leaving Neverland” documentary debuted at Sundance Film Festival, mental healthcare professionals were in the lobby to counsel anyone who was overcome by what they saw. Last night, HBO aired the first two hours, which takes us up to 1993 — right before the first public allegations are made against Michael. Wade Robson and Jimmy Safechuck talk about how Michael seduced not only them, but their entire families. Jimmy talked about how the physical relationship progressed from simple kisses to way more intimate sexual relationship, and Michael told him that if people found out, their lives would be over. Jimmy says Michael even staged a mock wedding ceremony for the two of them and showed the ring that Michael gave him. But eventually, Michael began to bring other boys around and Jimmy said he realized he was was being replaced, which devastated him because he really loved Michael. Wade also shared his story, which also involved winning the trust of his family. Wade also described the gradual way Michael went from innocent hugs to sexual experiences. Wade said Michael told him they were brought together by God and this was how they showed their love. But Wade said when Michael became friends with Macaulay Culkin, their relationship changed dramatically. Michael stopped paying for things for Wade’s family and their sexual relationship became less frequent. Part two airs tonight on HBO.
