Who knew she was even in negotiations, but sources say Katy Perry turned down a $20 million offer to be a judge on “American Idol.” That would’ve made Katy the highest paid judge on any music competition show and $2 million above Mariah Carey’s pre-tax pay. Nicki Minaj is still negotiating a deal that is said to be worth about $8 million. And sources say Keith Urban is in the final stages of negotiations and is close to signing a deal to judge “Idol” for between $3 million and $4 million.
After the judge ruled that Usher had to re-open his estranged wife’s Saks Fifth Avenue account, Tameka Foster Raymond must’ve assumed she had this whole custody fight in the bag. But the judge went the other way on this one, giving Usher full primary custody of their two sons. During closing arguments, Usher’s attorney told the judge that they’ve offered plenty of proof that Tameka isn’t capable of being a proper parent and that she doesn’t have the emotional stability or capacity to bond with them. The judge agreed and Usher gets custody of 4-year-old Usher Raymond IV and 3-year-old Naviyd. Tameka plans to hire new lawyers and appeal.
Rihanna spent her entire Saturday with Rob Kardashian. I’m not joking. The two of them went go-carting during the day and clubbing at Playhouse in Hollywood that night. Here’s a little timeline — Rob started dating Rita Ora back in December. In February, there was a rumor that Rihanna and Rob hooked up, but nothing has been mentioned about that ever since. In fact, back in May, Rob and Rita went on a double date with his sister Kim and her boyfriend, Kanye West. And even though Rob and Rita recently got each other’s names tattooed on their hands, she was seen leaving a London nightclub with some singer named Harley Alexander-Sule, and this weekend, Rob is partying with Rihanna. Hmmmm…….
So what are the consequences for a wild weekend in Vegas and a little game of strip pool? For Prince Harry, it’s cost him his girlfriend. Cressida Bonas is humiliated by the pictures TMZ posted of her naked boyfriend wrapped around some random topless girl, and she no longer sees a future with him. Harry also got a finger-wagging lecture from his father, Prince Charles, and his grandmother, the Queen, who both reminded him that he is an ambassador for their country and should’ve behaved appropriately. They’ve ordered him to issue a public apology, so look for that to be delivered soon. But what about his military career? A source told the “Sunday Mirror” that Harry was due to fly out to Afghanistan where he serves as an Apache pilot, but he must meet with his Commanding Officer first. Could he be kicked out of the military over this? And finally, we hear that there are even more scandalous pictures taken of Harry when he was partying pre-Vegas on Sir Richard Branson’s private island of Necker in the British Virgin Islands. They’re being shopped around now and the asking price is a reported $250K.
