Khloe Kardashian 'gets along great' with Pete Davidson

Khloe gets along with Pete

Khloe Kardashian and Pete Davidson "get along great".

The 28-year-old comedian is dating Kim Kardashian West - Khloe's sister - and the Good American co-founder has given their romance her stamp of approval.

A source explained: "She loves Pete and is so happy to see how happy he makes her sister."

Khloe, 37, and Pete have already developed a good relationship, and the TV star thinks he's the ideal man for her sibling.

An insider told the New York Post newspaper's Page Six column: "She is so happy to see how happy he makes her sister. We hear their closest friends and family approve on both sides."

Pete and Kim, 41, started dating last year, and the 'Saturday Night Live' star is already thinking about getting his own place in Los Angeles in order to be closer to his girlfriend.

The comedian is currently based in New York, but he's now looking for his own place on the West coast.

A source said earlier this week: "Pete’s been spending more time in LA to be close to Kim, and he’s looking to find a place there.

"They’ve definitely gotten serious."

Pete and Kim - who has North, eight, Saint, six, Chicago, four, and Psalm, two, with her estranged husband Kanye West - recently enjoyed a romantic trip to the Bahamas together.

However, the loved-up duo are both going to be busy with work over the coming months, meaning they're unlikely to spend as much time together as they'd wish to.

An insider explained: "Kim and Pete wanted to spend this time together because they’re both going to be working a lot during the coming months.

"Pete will be filming, and Kim is launching some new products, so they’ll still be able to see each other, but this is the last time they’ll be able to spend a lot of quality time together for a few months."





Joe Exotic resentenced to 21 years in prison

Joe Exotic resentenced

Joe Exotic has been resentenced to 21 years in prison.

The 'Tiger King' star had his prison term reduced by one year by a federal judge on Friday (28.01.22), after he was previously convicted in a murder-for-hire plot against Carole Baskin.

The TV star - whose real name is Joseph Maldonado-Passage - was resentenced after a federal appeals court determined in 2021 that improper sentencing guidelines were previously used.

The former zookeeper - who shot to worldwide fame after starring in the Netflix series 'Tiger King' - was initially sentenced to 22 years in prison.

But his attorneys have subsequently campaigned to have his sentence reduced, alleging "imperfect entrapment, sentencing manipulation, and outrageous government conduct".

In a sentencing memorandum, they previously said: "From decisions made in the initial stages of the investigation to charging decisions to overzealous sentencing recommendations, one thing remains clear: this case was about doing whatever it took to put Mr. Maldonado-Passage behind bars for as long as possible."

Maldonado-Passage was joined in the courtroom in Oklahoma City by a group of his supporters, some of whom wore animal-print masks and shirts.

His attorneys have already confirmed their intention to appeal the resentencing and petition for a new trial.

Maldonado-Passage previously called on US President Joe Biden to grant him a presidential pardon after he was diagnosed with prostate cancer.

The controversial TV star also criticised Donald Trump for overlooking his case during his time in the White House.

He said: "I don’t want anyone’s pity, what I need is when John Phillips gets the evidence he is working on, I need the world to help him get President Biden, VP Harris and the Attorney General to listen to the evidence and see that it’s not just city cops out of control with corruption, but his very own Department of Justice and make this right and sign that pardon that Trump left behind so I can go home and get proper medical care and proper food."



Lady Gaga 'healed' by speaking out

Lady Gaga 'healed'

Lady Gaga found it "healing" to speak about being raped.

The 'House of Gucci' actress revealed last year that she fell pregnant after being sexually assaulted by a music producer when she was just 19 years old, and she admitted she felt she was "living this big lie" by not speaking about her ordeal, so when she did open up, she felt much more "comfortable".

She told Deadline: "I think that for me it was just a healing process because I’m in the public eye often. At the time when I first started to come out of things that I was going through, I was in the public eye very frequently and followed all the time.

"I really felt like I was living this big lie by not sharing what I was experiencing. And it actually helped me to share my life experiences because then my fans - or people that were following me, people that were discovering me - they knew more of the human side of me. I just felt more comfortable in the world. It’s like living in your truth.

"I was with Jake Gyllenhaal the other day and we were talking about his film ['The Guilty']. I believe the quote at the beginning of the movie is like something like, 'It’s the truth that will set you free.' And I really believe that.

"I think when you live in your values and your truth, it can help you. In my particular existence it helps me to not feel like an imposter, but rather to know that I’m uniquely and truly myself, wounds and all."

The 35-year-old star called for a shift in the way sex crimes are discussed and insisted there should be more conversation about them, not just when it happens to someone in the public eye.

She added: "Ithink my true dream for the world would be that we socialize women’s issues such as sexual assault, and maybe not use the word ‘sexual’ and just call it ‘assault’. I think that when you apply the word sexual, it implies that there’s something sexy about it. Assault is assault. And I think that women, from a young age, experience assault all the time, and our bodies sort of learn to protect ourselves. We start surviving as we experience these assaults.

"What I would wish for the world is that it would be less of a reveal from famous people in Hollywood, and that there would be a more profound conversation around the way that young people are related to in inappropriate and criminal ways—abusive ways—from when they’re very young.

"All types of people experience assaults, and it’s part of the nature of society. We are so comfortable with this poison because we just say, “Well, that’s how it is.” I really challenge that and I wish to say, “But what if it was not that way? What if every time somebody was touched without consent and was assaulted, we paid attention? What if we talked about this?”

"I think a lot of people don’t feel safe in their bodies, and there’s a reason why. I wish that the conversation would shift from Hollywood - or even from people like me speaking out—and would shift more towards the everyday person who might look more closely at their life and ask themselves if they’re in an environment that is healthy for them. We have to challenge those systems, and we have to clean them, or we have to destroy them and rebuild them."





President Joe Biden to take part in TV special honouring Betty White

Biden to honour Betty

President Joe Biden, Drew Barrymore and Goldie Hawn will be among those to celebrate the life of the late Betty White in a TV special.

‘The Golden Girls’ star passed away just two weeks shy of her 100th birthday on New Year's Eve, and her “irreverent tone, spirit and impeccable timing” will be honoured by a whole array of famous faces on ‘Celebrating Betty White: America’s Golden Girl’, which airs on NBC on Monday night.

In a statement, NBC said: "Co-stars, friends, admirers and those who shared special moments with White recount their favourite memories and reveal untold stories to commemorate the life and legacy of the trailblazing television star.”

Guests featured on the show - which will also be available on Peacock - will include President Joe Biden, Drew Barrymore, Cher, Bryan Cranston, Ted Danson, Ellen DeGeneres, Goldie Hawn, Joel McHale and many many more, and there will also be “never-before-seen footage” of Emmy winner.

The statement continued: “The telecast will include clips and never-before-seen footage that best capture White's irreverent tone, spirit and impeccable comedic timing that are a hallmark of her decades-long career."

Just 11 days before she died, Betty herself recorded a tribute to her fans which would have aired around her milestone birthday.

The video was shared on her official Facebook page and she said: “I just want to thank you all for your love and support over the years. Thank you so much, and stick around!”

Betty's friend and agent, Jeff Witjas, previously suggested fans could donate to her favourite charities, including The Los Angeles Zoo, Tree People, Monterey Bay Aquarium, Wildlife Learning Center, and Actors and Animals for Others, if they wanted to honour her life.

He said: "If someone has a desire to do something in her honour, you can support or donate to one or more of her favourite charities or even donate to a local animal charity of your choice."



Nicolas Cage says he's 'got it right' with fifth wife

Cage finally 'got it right'

Nicolas Cage believes he’s finally “got it right” with fifth wife Riko Shibata.

The 58-year-old-actor - who was previously married to Patricia Arquette, Lisa Marie Presley, Alice Kim and Erika Koike - tied the knot with the 27-year-old actress last February and though he knows walking down the aisle as many times as he has is "a lot," the star is hopeful this will be the last.

He told the Los Angeles Times: “I'm really happily married. I know five is a lot. But I think I got it right this time.”

The 'Mandy' actor has a pet crow named Hoogan and Nicolas finds it hilarious that the bird has started insulting him.

He said: “He has taken to calling me names ... it’s comical, at least, it is to me. When I leave the room, he’ll say, ‘Bye,’ and then go, ‘A******.'

“Crows are very intelligent. And I like their appearance, the Edgar Allan Poe aspect. I like the goth element. I am a goth.”

The 'Con Air' star is a big animal lover, and described his four-year-old Maine Coon Merlin as his "best friend", but insisted his other cat, Teegra, doesn't care that he has a favourite.

He said: "He doesn't give a s***."

Elsewhere in the interview, Nicolas admitted he no longer likes the word "acting."

He said: “Which is a word I don’t like anymore, ‘acting'. “I sound like a pretentious fart for saying ‘thespian’ but acting now has become like lying. It sounds like I’m lying. If you’re a great actor, you’re a great liar.

"‘Thespian’ seems more like it’s about finding some truth within and then projecting it for others to get it. At least, it does to me. But I’m not always on the same wavelength as everyone else."



Chris Brown hit with $20 million lawsuit over rape allegations

Chris Brown $20M lawsuit

Chris Brown is being sued for $20 million by a woman accusing him of rape.

The 32-year-old singer has been hit with a lawsuit by an anonymous woman, who has claimed he drugged and raped her on December 30, 2020.

According to documents obtained by TMZ, the filing claims the alleged sexual assault occurred on a yacht at Sean 'Diddy' Combs' home on Miami Beach's Star Island.

The woman - who is said to have described herself as a "professional choreographer, dancer, model and musical artist" - claims Chris took the phone of a friend she was on FaceTime with and urged her to come to the property as soon as possible.

She claims once she arrived, the singer offered her a drink and motioned her towards the kitchen on the boat.

According to the report, she alleges that after going into the kitchen, he gave her a red cup containing a mixed drink as they started talking, before he refilled her cup.

She claims she felt "a sudden, unexplained change in consciousness," before feeling "disoriented, physically unstable, and started to fall in and out of sleep."

The woman claims Chris then led her into a bedroom and closed the door before taking off her bikini bottoms and kissing her.

In the documents, she says she told him to stop, but he allegedly raped her.

She says the next day, she received a text from the star telling her to take Plan B, and while she was "distraught", she claims she did so.

She is suing him for $20 million in damages, citing the severe emotional distress caused by the alleged assault.

Meanwhile, her attorneys Ariel Mitchell and George Vrabeck told TMZ that the woman didn't report the allegation to police at the time because she was embarrassed and a medical student.

The two layers added that they're "committed to victims being heard and would urge anyone with information to contact them."



George Clooney and Brad Pitt took pay cut to ensure new movie's cinema release

George, Brad take pay cut

Brad Pitt and George Clooney accepted lower fees to ensure their new movie hits theatres.

The Hollywood stars - who have starred together in many projects together over the years, including ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ and ‘Burn After Reading’ - are reuniting for the upcoming as-yet-untitled thriller helmed by 'Spider-Man: No Way Home's Jon Watts, which Apple Original Movies won the rights to in a fierce bidding war.

And Oscar-winner Clooney, who let slip that they were offered major wages for the motion picture, believes there is a place for movies to "co-exist" on the big screen and streaming platforms.

Clooney told Deadline: “And we said we’d like to take less as long as we can guarantee that we can have a theatrical release, and they said great.

“I do think that there’s a way that we can all co-exist. You know, I do think that there is a version of this that we can do. There’s a lot of movies that are fun to still see on a big screen. You know, the film I’m doing with Julia [Roberts] right now is a Universal film, and it’s a comedy, and comedies are fun to see in a room full of people.”

The bidding war for the film - which is described as a “tale of two lone-wolf fixers assigned to the same job” - was both an “extreme” and “exciting time” for Clooney, 60, and his 58-year-old co-star.

He added: “It was an exciting time because it got to be one of those weird bidding wars which happen every once in a while, and it ended up being pretty extreme, and Apple came in with a really big number for Brad and I.”



Pete Davidson 'wants to find a place in Los Angeles'

Pete looking for LA home

Pete Davidson is looking to get his own place in Los Angeles to be closer to Kim Kardashian West.

The 28-year-old comedian - who is currently based in New York - started dating Kim, 41, last year, and their high-profile romance has "definitely gotten serious" in recent weeks.

A source told Us Weekly: "Pete’s been spending more time in LA to be close to Kim, and he’s looking to find a place there.

"They’ve definitely gotten serious."

Pete and Kim - who has North, eight, Saint, six, Chicago, four, and Psalm, two, with her estranged husband Kanye West - recently enjoyed a romantic trip to the Bahamas together.

However, the loved-up duo are both going to be busy with work over the coming months, meaning they're unlikely to spend as much time together as they'd wish to.

An insider said earlier in January: "Kim and Pete wanted to spend this time together because they’re both going to be working a lot during the coming months.

"Pete will be filming, and Kim is launching some new products, so they’ll still be able to see each other, but this is the last time they’ll be able to spend a lot of quality time together for a few months."

Meanwhile, Pete has already made a positive impression on Kim's family, with a source recently revealing that the Kardashian/Jenner clan "adore" the comedian.

The 'Saturday Night Live' star has quickly developed a good relationship with Kim's family.

The source said: "Kim's family absolutely adores Pete and welcomes the idea of their relationship with open arms.

"Kim radiates when Pete is around and the family really takes notice of that and respects Pete for bringing out Kim's best self."



David Letterman to appear on Late Night's anniversary special

Letterman back for special

David Letterman is returning to 'Late Night' for the show's 40th anniversary special.

The 74-year-old comedian launched the show in 1982, before moving to CBS to host 'The Late Show' in 1993, and he's now preparing to make a return on Feb. 1.

Seth Meyers - who has hosted 'Late Night' since 2014 - said in a video: "The 40th anniversary is next Tuesday, and to celebrate, my guest that evening will be the man who started it all, David Letterman."

Seth can't wait for the veteran TV star to return to the programme.

He said: "Now that is a show that would make college-age Seth Meyers very happy. Also, current Seth Meyers."

Seth has previously credited Letterman for the show's success, admitting it "wouldn't exist" without him.

He explained: "This show, 'Late Night,' this is David Letterman's show. And if it wasn't for David Letterman, this show wouldn't exist. And if it wasn't for David Letterman, I wouldn't be here. And if I wasn't here, you'd just be an audience of people in an empty studio ... it's incredible to be part of that legacy."

Letterman, 74, walked away from 'The Late Show' in 2015, and previously admitted that he initially missed working on the program.

The TV star - who has an 18-year-old son called Harry - said: "The first year I sure did [miss late night]. You get into a rhythm so I miss that. But the best part is, I get to do stuff with my son."

Letterman explained that he wants to spend more quality time with his son while he's still able to.

He joked: "Look at me - how much longer am I going to be around? I want to be the best friend. But he’s not keen on me being the best friend."



Halle Berry embarrassed over marriage prank flop

Embarrassed over prank

Halle Berry felt like an "a******" when her Instagram marriage prank went wrong.

The 'Bruised' filmmaker was on vacation with her partner Van Hunt to celebrate the New Year when, after "copious amounts of drinks", they passed a nearby chapel and took photos, which the 55-year-old star - who donned a floral crown for the pictures - then shared to Instagram.

The photo was captioned, "Well... IT'S OFFICIAL" but it was followed by a second image that read, "It's 2022" and after many of Halle's followers - including Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and Ava DuVernay - sent messages of congratulations because they hadn't swiped to the next post, the 'Monster's Ball' star admitted she won't be trying any more social media jokes.

Speaking on 'The Tonight Show', she told host Jimmy Fallon: “We had copious amounts of drinks at the bar. We were trying to make it back to our room when we passed this little chapel. We think ‘let’s go in here, let’s see what’s inside here.'

“Nobody got [the joke]. After 20 minutes went by we were like ‘We are such a*******.’ Everybody believes it… so many people don’t swipe.

“I didn’t know people don’t swipe. Now, I’m never doing swipes again because I know no one looks at the s***.”

A day after her original post, Halle - who has Nahla, 13, with former boyfriend Gabriel Aubry and Maceo, eight, from her marriage to third husband Olivier Martinez - returned to Instagram to clarify to fans that she'd been joking.

She wrote: "We were just having some New Year's Day fun! People clearly don't swipe as much as we thought they did. Thank you for the well wishes, tho', it really touched our hearts.

"Now it's OFFICIAL, the internet is no longer undefeated. "nomoreswipes4me Januaryfoolsday."



Ryan Reynolds to have a street in Ottawa named after him

'Ryan Reynolds Way' planned

Ryan Reynolds is to have a street in Ottawa named after him.

The 45-year-old actor and Vancouver native is to be nationally recognized with the opening of Ryan Reynolds Way, which is located in the east end of the city.

Jim Watson, Mayor of Ottawa, said on Twitter: "It’s clear that Ottawa has a special place in Ryan's heart – and in his honour, I’ll be bringing forward a motion later today to have a street named after him. Ryan Reynolds Way will be located in a new subdivision in the east end. Look forward to seeing it open soon!"

The 'Deadpool' star - who has daughters James, seven, Inez, five and Betty, two with wife Blake Lively - responded to the news by calling it an "incredible honour" and joked that in return he would rename one of his children Ottawa.

In a tweet, he said: "This is an incredible honour and a deal is a deal, Mr Mayor… I’ve changed my daughter’s name to Ottawa."

The recognition comes after Ryan and Blake had several made donations to causes across Canada including the Ottawa food bank.

Ryan also collaborated with Ottawa Public Health to play Bruce, a hapless social media intern who - as well as messing up basic details in news tweets - also encouraged people to wear a mask and get vaccinated against COVID-19in a string of posts on their Twitter profile which went viral.

When it was revealed that Ryan was behind the satirical posts, Ottawa Public Health said: "We were, to say the least, delighted when Mr. Reynolds agreed to participate.

"We appreciate that Mr. Reynolds took the time out of his busy schedule to help us share this important public health message."



'Melrose Place' actor Morgan Stevens found dead

Morgan Stevens found dead

Morgan Stevens has died aged 70.

The 'Melrose Place' actor - who was also well known for starring in 'Fame' - hadn't been seen for a few days which resulted in one of his neighbours ringing the authorities to carry out a wellness check.

Police confirmed to TMZ that Morgan was found in his kitchen, where he was pronounced dead.

No foul play is suspected, and it is believed he most likely died of natural causes.

Morgan starred in seven episodes of US soap 'Melrose Place' as Nick Diamond in the mid-1990s, and he also played teacher David Reardon in two seasons of TV show 'Fame' from 1982 to 1984.

The late actor also appeared in historical drama 'The Waltons' as Paul Northridge, and three reunion films, 'A Wedding on Walton's Mountain' - in which his character tied the knot with Erin Walton (Mary Elizabeth McDonough) - 'Mother's Day on Walton's Mountain' and 'A Day for Thanks on Walton's Mountain'.

Morgan featured in short stints in numerous other productions, including 'Murder, She Wrote', 'Murder One', and 'One Day at a Time'.

What's more, the star previously claimed he was a victim of police brutality after he was arrested for an alleged DUI in the 1990s.

He suffered a broken nose, a fractured cheek, a dislocated jaw and nerve damage and later settled out of court in June 1991.

Morgan's last screen appearance came in TV series 'Walker, Texas Ranger' in 1999 as Max Henson, two years after he starred in TV show 'High Incident'.
