Dr. Dre was rushed to the hospital with a brain aneurysm last Monday, and he’s still there. Sources told TMZ that Dre is still in ICU while doctors try to figure out what’s causing his brain bleed. They also want him in ICU in case he suffers another aneurysm. TMZ does not know if Dre has had brain surgery, which is usually the case. But their sources do say he’s resting comfortably and doctors have told the family that they aren’t expecting a “bad outcome.” According to statistics, about 50% of the time, brain aneurysms result in death, while about 2/3 suffer some sort of permanent neurological deficit.
“And Just Like That…” HBO Max is finally giving us an update on the ladies of “Sex & the City” with a 10-episode limited series that will start filming this spring. No idea when the show will air. Sarah Jessica Parker (Carrie), Cynthia Nixon (Miranda) and Kristin Davis (Charlotte) all shared the news on social media. Kim Cattrell (Samantha) did not. Unless there’s a miracle in the form of a great big paycheck, she’s probably not coming back. The original series ran on HBO from 1998-2004. The first movie arrived in 2008, followed by the stinker of 2010. In making her announcement, SJP posted a clip of the trailer and captioned it, “I couldn’t help but wonder…where are they now?”
A celebrity relationship isn’t official until they walk the red carpet together or post it on Instagram. Since there are no red carpets right now….Michael B. Jordan and Lori Harvey are now Instagram Official! They’ve obviously been dating for a few months now. We saw them get off a plane together in Atlanta for Thanksgiving and they were snapped arriving in Salt Lake City together to celebrate the new year. But yesterday, Michael shared a couple dark and grainy photos of the two of them looking like they were about to kiss. Lori shared a couple Polaroids and captioned them with a heart.
TikTok star Cole Carrigan posted some clips last week claiming that back in November, Kanye West’s former bodyguard slipped into his DMs and invited him to come meet up with Kanye at the W Hotel. He even posted screenshots, adding, “I obviously can’t say much…I don’t want a lawsuit from Kim Kardashian West, but these are literally the DMs from the security guard — well, ex-security guard — that reached out to me before we started texting, so that’s all I’m going to say on that.” He also claimed the bodyguard arranged for his transportation to the hotel and sent him an NDA. Hold up a minute. In one of those Cole’s clips, it clearly shows Steve Stanulis’ headshot from his IG account with his name at the top. In another post, Cole crossed all that out. But here’s the thing. Steve hasn’t worked for Kanye since 2016. He told Page Six he’s never met or spoken to Cole Carrigan and had his lawyer fire off a cease-and-desist. He’s also demanding that Cole apologize to him AND to Kim and Kanye “for publishing defamatory statements that you knew were false.”
Was Harry Styles the reason Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis ended their engagement? It depends on whose timeline you want to believe. you want to believe. Olivia met Jason at an SNL after-party. They got engaged in 2012, had two kids, but never tied the knot. Back in early 2020, there were reports that they’d called off the engagement, but then we saw them frolicking in the surf together over the summer. Were they working on a reconciliation? Maybe. But then along came Harry. Back in September, Olivia hired Harry to replace Shia LaBeouf in her movie “Don’t Worry Darling.” One source told Us Weekly that by October, Olivia and Harry were developing feelings for each other, and a month later, she ended her engagement to Jason. However, another source told Us, “The engagement was called off early last year, as was previously reported. Harry was in no way the reason for their split.” And yet another source told The Post that “Jason found out about Harry and pushed the conversation. Olivia then asked for a separation and news of the split was made public.” No matter what the timeline, Jason is said to be devastated.
