Kim Kardashian pays Kanye West $3 million for contents of marital home

Kim pays Kanye $3 million

Kim Kardashian has given Kanye West $3 million for the contents of their home.

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star has agreed to buy the Los Angeles abode from her estranged husband, with $20 million - the same as the original outlay on the property - going to the Stronger hitmaker for the building and the additional sum for "all finishings, furniture, fixtures, appliances' collectibles, silver and art currently located in said Residence."

According to documents filed to the Los Angeles Superior Court last week and obtained by People magazine, the house was appraised by an independent expert in June 2020.

Kim and Kanye - who have children North, eight, Saint, five, Chicago, three, and two-year-old Psalm together - bought the house in 2014 and worked extensively with architect Axel Vervoordt to create their dream, all-white, family home.

After living with the 40-year-old beauty's mom, Kris Jenner, during the renovations, the family finally moved into the property in December 2017.

Four months later, Kris revealed the value of the abode had skyrocketed from the $20 million the pair had paid for it to a staggering $60 million.

Despite the purchase, Kanye - who has legally changed his name to Ye - won't be left homeless as last month it was claimed he'd splashed out almost $60 million on a beachfront property in Malibu.

The 44-year-old rapper has also put his ranch in Cody, Wyoming, up for sale for $11 million.

Kelly Osbourne enters rehab for seventh time

Kelly back in rehab

Reality TV star Kelly Osbourne has reportedly entered rehab for a seventh time after relapsing earlier this year.

The daughter of Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne has entered a facility in Austin, Texas, Radar Online reported on Monday.

"The scandal about her mom's exit from The Talk had a tremendous impact on her. At the same time, Ozzy has crippling Parkinson's disease and excruciating nerve damage. Kelly felt everything hit her at once," a source close to the family told the outlet.

Mom Sharon left American chat show The Talk in March amid allegations of racism, after getting into an on-air spat with co-host Sheryl Underwood. Osbourne had defended British TV host Piers Morgan's controversial remarks, when he said he didn't believe Meghan, Duchess of Sussex's claim in her Oprah Winfrey TV interview that she had previously felt suicidal.

Then, earlier this month, Kelly split from her boyfriend of one year, Erik Bragg, according to Us Weekly.

The TV star and singer admitted in April she'd suffered an alcohol relapse after almost four years of sobriety and had a "nervous breakdown" amid the COVID-19 lockdown.

"I don't know why my nervous breakdown happened at the end of the lockdown. I made it all the way through, everything was great, and my life was perfect," she told Extra at the time.

"I'm that girl that when everything is going great, I need to f**k it up a little and make everything a little bit worse in my life."

And in April, she wrote on Instagram: "I relapsed, not proud of it but I'm back on track... I just want to let you know that I'm sober today and I'm going to be sober tomorrow. But I've truly learned that it is just one day at a time and I wanted to tell you guys the truth cause I never ever want to lie to you."

Travis Barker splashed $1 million on Kourtney Kardashian's engagement ring

Kourtney's $1M ring

Kourtney Kardashian's engagement ring reportedly cost Travis Barker $1million.

The reality star and Blink-182 rocker shared snaps of the romantic beach proposal over the weekend, with the mother of three giving fans a first look at her huge engagement ring.

According to ring specialist Max Stone from Steven Stone, the ring, featuring a large oval-shaped diamond that sits on a thin silver band, is of the "highest quality" and "one of this year's most incredible celebrity engagement rings."

Stone explained: "In true Kardashian style, Kourtney's ring is a real showstopper. The huge oval diamond is a VS2 grade, which is of the highest quality.

"From looking at the photographs posted on Instagram it looks to be around eight carats. The huge stone is set on a thin pave band for extra sparkle.

"The simplicity of the setting extenuates the size of the stone, making it look even larger. With this in mind, it is most likely worth around it $1 million," he added, reported MailOnline.

Kourtney's sister Kim Kardashian was among the first to publicly congratulate the couple, writing alongside footage of the pair, "KRAVIS FOREVER."

Reports suggest Kourtney's other sister, Khloe Kardashian, and her on/off boyfriend Tristan Thompson were present as Travis asked his girlfriend to be his wife, while Kourtney's mom, Kris Jenner, joined the group to celebrate.

Meanwhile, Barker's teenage daughter, Alabama, was thrilled by the news, sharing several photos from the special evening, and his former stepdaughter, Atiana De La Hoya, was also a guest at the dinner celebration.



Mick Jagger and Keith Richards mark six decades since they met

60 years of Mick and Keith

Mick Jagger and Keith Richards have marked the 60th anniversary of their first encounter at Dartford railway station.

The Rolling Stones bandmates first spoke at the Kent railway station in Southeast England six decades ago on Oct. 17 1961.

To celebrate their friendship, the official Stones Twitter account wrote: "60 years on the same train."

In 2015, Dartford council had a blue plaque placed at the station, which read: "Mick Jagger and Keith Richards met on platform 2 on 17 October 1961 and went on to form The Rolling Stones - one of the most successful rock bands of all time."

The group's former bassist, Bill Wyman, "took umbrage" with the sign and insisted it wasn't factually correct.

Guitarist Keith reacted: "I actually don't know exactly what it said, but Mick just the other day came up to me and says, 'do you believe this s**t, man? Bill Wyman is complaining about the plaque at Dartford station."

"I said, 'A plaque? I thought we had a statue.' I know he took umbrage with (what the plaque said), but I can't understand why. Bill wasn't there when the band was formed.

"Ian Stewart formed the band - we gravitated around him. Bill was a quirky, funny old f**ker, but why he should make some kind of public 'do' about it.

"I think Mick sent a note saying - because Bill comes from a town called Penge - 'Bill, if a plaque went up in Penge station that said you were the founding member of the Rolling Stones, do you think we'd complain?'

"But Bill - oh, we love him dearly, and he was a hell of a bass player. We didn't tell him to leave."

Bill replaced Dick Taylor as their bass player in December 1962, but quit the band in 1993.

Following the passing of drummer Charlie Watts aged 80 in August, The Rolling Stones are now a three-piece, completed by Ronnie Wood.



Prosecutors drop domestic violence case against Chuck Liddell

Liddell case dropped

Former UFC star Chuck Liddell and his estranged wife, Heidi, will not face prosecution following their domestic violence drama last week.

Officials with the Los Angeles District Attorney's Office have opted not to proceed with the case or file charges after the Liddells were allegedly involved in a physical confrontation, which landed Chuck behind bars.

Filing for divorce on Friday, Chuck insisted he was not the aggressor and claimed his wife suffers from mental health issues.

According to new legal documents obtained by The Blast, Chuck said: "I was the victim of the incident... at our family home, as details of the case will reveal. The deputies informed me that my wife would be arrested, as I did not respond to her assault while I sustained bruising and lacerations. I volunteered to go in her place.

"This was one of many times I have tried to shield a family mental health issue from the public purview. It has become painfully apparent that this cannot continue, as our private life has now reached a public breaking point. Please respect our privacy as I help to navigate our family through this difficult time."

The estranged couple shares two children.



British council bosses warn young kids are copying dangerous Squid Game stunts

Kids copying Squid Game

British council chiefs are terrified that children as young as six are emulating dangerous stunts featured on hit Netflix series Squid Game.

The South Korean show, in which cash-strapped contestants take part in deadly adult versions of children's playground games to pay off their debts, has become the streaming platform's most-watched series ever, beating out period drama Bridgerton last week with 111 million global views.

And now councilors in Bedfordshire, England are warning parents their kids could be accessing inappropriate screen content, either by watching the adult series online or seeing videos inspired by its sometimes gruesome challenges on video-sharing site TikTok - and they're worried youngsters could harm themselves as a result of trying the grown-up stunts.

An email from Central Bedfordshire Council officials, obtained by the Guardian, reads: "There have been some concerning reports recently about children and young people 'playing' Squid Game whilst at school. Squid Game is also being viewed via other platforms such as YouTube and TikTok, and given the popularity of the games in the show, developers have made various mini-games based on Squid Game on Roblox and other gaming platforms.

"We strongly advise that children should not watch Squid Game. The show is quite graphic with a lot of violent content."

Gareth Nichols, head teacher of Sir Francis Hill primary school in Lincoln, England, told the BBC a small group of pupils, aged around six, were "re-enacting some scenes" from the show, and he "immediately contacted" parents to let them know, advising them to "check settings on their devices as pupils may be accessing and viewing this show without their parents' knowledge."

Netflix officials have yet to comment on the warnings.

Hudson signed a new deal in March, 2020 and she'll serve her final term before exiting.

The Board of Governors and I are mutually committed to a seamless transition to new leadership. I'm excited for what the future holds, for both the Academy and for me."

During her tenure, Hudson, who became the AMPAS CEO in 2011, has dealt with the Moonlight mix-up at the Oscars, the #OscarsSoWhite controversy, and the impact of the Black Lives Matter and #MeToo movements, which led to membership and rules changes.

Hudson previously ran Film Independent and the organization's Independent Spirit Awards and the now-defunct Los Angeles Film Festival.

Kanye legally changes name

Rapper Kanye West has made Ye his official new name.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michelle Williams signed off on the name change for the Gold Digger rapper on Monday (18Oct21), almost two months after the rap star first filed paperwork to adopt his nickname, citing "personal reasons".

In 2018, the Stronger hitmaker released an album named Ye. At the time, he told Los Angeles radio host Big Boy that he believes 'ye' - which means 'you' - is "the most commonly used word in the Bible".

Ye is also West's Twitter and Instagram handle.

The rapper also filed legal documents to trademark "Ye" for use on "sanitary masks for protection against viral infection", TMZ reported on Monday.

Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker are engaged.

The drummer popped the question on Sunday at the Rosewood Miramar hotel in Montecito, California, and Kourtney posted the engagement news and a snap of her new ring on Instagram, as well as photos of the couple embracing.

"forever @travisbarker," she wrote.

Kourtney's sister Kim Kardashian was among the first to publicly congratulate the couple, tweeting footage of the pair and captioning the shot: "KRAVIS FOREVER."

The sketch comedy regulars and sister Kim poked fun at the couple's very hands-on relationship last week, when Kim portrayed Kourtney as a TV judge in a skit and comedian Mikey Day played a horny Travis, who could not leave his girlfriend alone.

Vince breaks ribs in fall

Vince Neil is recovering from a stage fall at a concert in Tennessee on Friday night.

The Motley Crue rocker was rushed to hospital after taking a tumble at the Monster on the Mountain festival in Pigeon Forge with his solo band.

Sources claim he was only a few songs into his set when he fell through a gap between a speaker and the stage, and had to be helped to his feet by a roadie and a security guard.

Bassist Dana Strum told the crowd, "Vince fell and broke ribs... He can't breathe and he's gonna get dealt with medically. He was so excited to be here. He lives in Tennessee. But he was willing to stick it out and tough it out when the people back here were telling him, 'Don't do it'. Let's have one good round of applause, please, for this guy."

The band carried on without Vince, with guitarist Jeff Blando taking over lead vocals.
