Rihanna welcomes a baby boy with A$AP Rocky

Rihanna welcomes baby

Rihanna has welcomed a baby boy with ASAP Rocky.

The 34-year-old pop star - who has been dating rapper A$AP since January 2020 - announced back in February that the couple were expecting and reportedly welcomed the baby almost a week ago.

A source told TMZ: "Rihanna and A$AP Rocky are officially parents ... welcoming a baby boy to the world."

While there was no news of the name of the baby, the 'Umbrella' hitmaker is said to have given birth last Friday (13.05.22) in Los Angeles, just days after she was said to have been spotted in public for the last time at a restaurant.

Back in April, the Fenty Beauty founder - who has no other children - graced the cover of Vogue and insisted that pregnancy was not slowing her down and she felt more inclined to say "yes" to things.

She said: "None of the dials are turned down I think I even say yes to more now because I know it will be different on the other side of this. At first I expected some magical change, but really I remain who I am.

Balance is one of my biggest challenges and always has been. And now there’s another human being coming into play, it changes what that means again.

Still, I have businesses that aren’t going to run themselves. My mom handled the three of us with not even close to the amount of resources that I have, so I can absolutely do it. I’m sorry — it’s too much fun to get dressed up. I’m not going to let that part disappear because my body is changing!"

Ozzy Osbourne to release new album in September

Ozzy to release new album

Ozzy Osbourne will release his new album in October.

The 'Paranoid' rocker confirmed last month he'd finished recording the follow-up to 2020's 'Ordinary Man' and now the 73-year-old singer's wife, Sharon Osbourne, has told fans they can expect to hear it in just a few months time.

Speaking on 'The Graham Norton Radio Show', she said: "He’s good. He’s really, really good. He’s finished another album which is coming out in September. And there we are.

“He’s busy in the studio. He still does all his writing and singing, and it keeps him really happy… He’ll never stop singing and writing.

"We’ve built him a big studio here [at the house in the UK], so he can do it all at home. And he can’t wait to come back, to be honest with you.”

Ozzy teased he'd finished the record just a few weeks ago.

He wrote on Instagram: "I'm so happy to let everyone know that I finished my new album this week and delivered it to my label @EpicRecords. I'll be sharing all the information about the album and its' upcoming release with you in the next weeks."

However, according to financial documents from Sony, the record had initially been planned to be released at the end of April.

Last December, producer and guitarist Andrew Watt revealed that they were half way through the new album, which is tipped to feature Guns N' Roses' Duff McKagan, musician Eric Clapton, Pearl Jam's Mike McCready, the late Taylor Hawkins and Chad Smith from the Red Hot Chilli Peppers.

Along with his music, Ozzy has teamed up with Bono, Bruce Springsteen and Elton John for Global Citizens 'Stand Up for Ukraine' campaign to "amplify the call" to help the unfolding humanitarian crisis.

Ozzy wrote: “We’re standing up for Ukraine.We’re asking everyone who sees this to amplify this call — post yourself, share a video from an activist, or share this video — so that our world leaders know we need the world to stand up for Ukraine and support refugees.”



Sean 'Diddy' Combs clarifies name

Combs clarifies name

Sean 'Diddy' Combs doesn't want people to call him Love.

The 'I'll Be Missing You' hitmaker has been known by a variety of monikers over the years, including Puff Daddy, P. Diddy, and Puffy, and although he legally changed his middle name to 'Love' last year, it's not how he wants to be addressed.

Appearing on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show', the host bluntly asked: "What's your name?"

Diddy laughed: "I decided that I am just going to go by the name Diddy."

After Ellen pointed out his name change, he replied: "See, Diddy is my nickname. Love is my real name. I just changed my name to Love.

"Sean Love Combs, that's what it says on my driver's license, that's my official name, Love.

"I'm Love. I am Love! I have made it."

The 52-year-old star had a huge tattoo reading 'Love' on the side of his body in honour of his new name.

He joked: "I wanted to make sure that if anybody didn't get the message, they could see it. No, I love tattoos and I got that in one day."

Diddy announced last year he had officially changed his middle name to Love, two years after filing a petition to do so.

But well before then, he announced on Twitter he'd decided he wanted to be known as Brother Love.

He declared in November 2017: "I decided to change my name again! My new name is LOVE aka Brother Love. #TakeDat (sic)"

In an accompanying video, he said: "Hey what's up y'all? I have some very, very serious news. I've been praying on this, and I decided — I know it's risky, it could come off as corny to some people, like yo — I decided to change my name again.

"I'm just not who I am before. I'm something different. So my new name is Love, AKA Brother Love. I will not be answering to Puffy, Diddy, Puff Daddy, or any of my other monikers but Love or Brother Love, okay? It's my birthday, I feel good. God is the greatest, I give all the glory, and I thank my momma and daddy."

But two days later, he insisted he was "only joking" and was simply introducing a new "alter ego".

He said: "Due to the overwhelming response to the media out there, and just to not wanting there to be any confusion, I was only joking. I didn't change my name.

"It was just part of one of my alter egos, and one of my alter egos is Love.

"To set the record straight, because I have a lot of press to do in the next couple weeks, you can address me by any of my older names, but if you still wanna call me Love, you can call me Love, baby. But I was only playing."

Pearl Jam cancel tour after positive COVID tests

Pearl Jam cancel tour

Pearl Jam have cancelled the rest of their US tour.

The 'Alive' group have been joined at recent shows by guest drummers after Matt Cameron contracted COVID-19, but after bassist Jeff Ament also tested positive for the virus, they have made the decision to scrap their remaining concerts in Sacramento and Las Vegas.

Eddie Vedder and his bandmates apologised to fans who were due to attend the shows.

They said in a statement shared to Twitter: “Dear PJ fans and ticket holders, while the band battled through Oakland after drummer Matt Cameron tested positive for Covid, and Fresno where Ed and the band got through it with the help of Dave Krusen as special guest drummer, they now have to present the heartbreaking news that this morning bassist Jeff Ament has tested positive for COVID.

“This is horrible for everybody involved and we are especially sorry to those out there who have made plans to attend these shows. Our attention to staying inside the bubble has been constant. We have truly done all that we could have to remain clear of infection.

“Regretfully, the Sacramento and Las Vegas shows are canceled. Ticket refunds will be automatically processed to ticket holders’ method of purchase. We are so very sorry. Be safe out there.”

Pearl Jam’s first drummer Dave Krusen, 56, this week played with the group for the first time in 31 years.

Professionals Josh Klinghoffer and Richard Stuverud have also filled in in Matt's absence, but the group also enlisted local fans to perform on some tracks with them.

During last week's shows in Oakland, California, local music teacher Josh Arroyo stepped up to play the group's final song 'Yellow Ledbetter', and the following evening, teenager Kai Neukermans - who plays in a band called The Alive - was brought on stage to play 'Mind Your Manners'.

According to reports, both men had been carefully scouted and selected before the shows and are believed to have had time to rehearse with the band, rather than their introduction to the stage being spontaneous.



The Hills reboot greenlighted with all-new cast

The Hills reboot green-lit

'The Hills' is returning with a new cast.

The Paramount network has given a series order to 'The Hills: Next Gen' from MTV’s Entertainment Studios, and it is expected the programme - which will be completely separate to the recent 'The Hills: New Beginning' reboot which featured many of the original cast members - will follow a more diverse group of people than the original show did.

The series will follow a close group of twentysomething friends and aspiring entrepreneurs who are coming of age in Los Angeles, ‘Deadline’ reported.

It is thought they will navigate realities of race, class, identity, addiction, family drama – along with the ups and downs of their romances and being self-made among the exclusive enclave of the hills in Malibu.

The original version of ‘The Hills’ was created by Adam DiVello and ran for six seasons from 2006 to 2010.

The show was previously resurrected by MTV in 2018, with original cast members returning for the ‘The Hills: New Beginnings’, and premiered a year later, running for two seasons.

However, in January, it was confirmed the programme had been axed but it was teased at the time that "future new takes" on the franchise were a possibility.

This news was first reported by Deadline, who wrote: “while the current iteration of the veteran reality franchise is not continuing, future new takes on the IP are possible.”

The reboot brought back many familiar faces from the original series, including Heidi Pratt, Brody Jenner, Audrina Patridge, Justin Bobby Brescia, Whitney Port, Frankie Delgado and Jason Wahler, along with some fresher ones such as Ashley Wahler, Jennifer Delgado, Brandon Lee Thomas and Kaitlynn Carter, and showcased them dealing with the newest stage of their lives, which included parenthood and marriage.

The original series ‘The Hills’ was itself a spin-off from ‘Laguna Beach’ , another MTV reality show from creator Adam DiVello that followed the lives of a group of California teenagers and, at the time, and documented Lauren Conrad’s foray into the world of the glamorous Hollywood Hills along with her new three friends - Audrina, Heidi and Whitney - and all the dramatic ups and downs.



Johnny Depp laughed as he held a dog out of a car window, according to Amber Heard’s sister

Depp laughed over dog

Johnny Depp laughed as he held a dog out of a car window, according to Amber Heard’s sister.

Whitney Henriquez testified how “scared” she was when the “inebriated” ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ star allegedly dangled the pooch out of the moving vehicle during the high profile libel trial in the city of Fairfax in Virginia.

While taking the stand in court, the 36-year-old actress' sister claimed: “At some point I heard the back window open and Johnny is holding our dog out the window and I froze.

“I was scared because I just remember thinking I knew how inebriated he was and the dog was very small and I thought if she twitched or if lost her somehow she was just going to go out of the window.”

Whitney detailed how Johnny was “laughing” as he brought the dog back into the car.

She said: “He was laughing – just this really scary, loud cackle.”

“Then he made some joke about putting her in the microwave.”

Whitney outlined that the alleged incident took place when the 58-year-old actor was intoxicated and had just accused Amber of having multiple affairs.

The ‘Aquaman’ star’s sister stated for the record that she had arrived to their temporary accommodation in Orange to find it “filled with smoke” and that Johnny was “slurring” and very angry with his now ex-wife.

Whitney - who has defended her sister in previous libel action made by Johnny as she detailed the toll his alleged abuse has taken on her, such as panic attacks and bruising - alleged that “his speech was slurred,” before explaining that it was difficult to comprehend what he was saying.

She went to claim that her ex brother-in-law was “upset” that Amber had been papped with her pal Marie while in France and he understood it “must have meant she was having an affair with her.”

Whitney testified that Johnny told Amber that “everyone would laugh at” her, before his attention “shifted to a painting on the wall that was done by one of my sister’s exes.”

Whitney alleged that Johnny became “convinced” the painting - which apparently had hung in that spot since they moved in - “was only on the wall to taunt and tease him,” and proof she was back together with her former flame.

While addressing the court, she said that during the alleged incident, Amber embraced her then-boyfriend but he told her to “f*** off” and that Whitney saw that Amber’s face was “swollen and red” and that her lip “did appear to be cut”, but did not think much of it because she did not know about the alleged abuse.

Whitney told the court that she assumed it was from “crying” and that the alleged cut “wasn’t my focus frankly”.

According to Whitney, she attempted to get Johnny to vacate the premises as he was running late to film a documentary about the Rolling Stones’ Keith Richards.

She claimed that they managed to get him to leave but he insisted on bringing Amber along, and the alleged dog incident took place on the way to set.

Whitney’s allegations come after her sister concluded her own testimony at the defamation trial put forward by Johnny following Amber penning a column in the Washington Post in 2018.

In the op-ed, the Amber wrote that she was a “public figure representing domestic abuse”.

Also in the article - that does not reference Johnny by name - she said: “I spoke up against sexual violence - and faced a culture’s wrath. That has to change.”

Johnny - whose divorce from Amber was finalised in 2017 after two years of marriage - asserts that the piece falsely implies that he is a domestic abuser - an allegation he has strongly denied - which has ruined his Hollywood career therefore is suing for $50 million.

In response, Amber is counter suing for $100 million, claiming that Johnny is leading a “smear campaign” against and called the legal action as a part of ongoing “abuse and harassment”.

The soap star - who also featured on ‘One Life to Live’ - has passed away after dealing with stage four metastatic breast cancer.

Kyle Luker, her representative told the Hollywood Reporter that Marnie died while in Bloomfield, New Jersey on Tuesday (17.05.22).

In 2007, Marnie made her debut on daytime television in ‘The Young and the Restless’ as Alison Stewart following the character’s appearance on the online show ‘Digital Daytime: LA Diaries,’ which also featured Adrienne Frantz, the actress behind the character Amber Moore.

Following this, she reprised the character in ‘As the World Turns’ until the soap was cancelled in 2010, the same year she got a Daytime Emmy nod before moving on ‘One Life to Live’ as Jo Sullivan, returning to the show when it was made into a Hulu and iTunes series in 2013.

Before making it on television, Marnie was born and raised in Massachusetts’ Cape Cod, attending Barnstable High School, DeSales University in Centre Valley, Pennsylvania - where she graduated in 2006 with a degree in theatre - and starred in productions during the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival.

The ‘Blue Bloods’ guest star is expected to be appear on the Showtime drama ‘City on the Hill’ in a recurring role.

Marnie is survived by her husband Zack Robidas - who is known for his work in ‘Succession’ and ‘Sorry for Your Loss’ - and their two-year-old daughter Coda, who was five-months-old when her mother was given her diagnosis in December 2019.

‘The Good Fight’ guest star was released from hospital on Mother’s Day to spend time with them.

At the time, Marnie wrote: “I know that me being here for [Coda] is the best gift I can give her, but right now, it feels like settling since she’s getting a half-life version of myself. My mother showed up 100 per cent all day every day for me growing up, or at least it seemed that way. I want to give Coda the same, but I must be kind to myself and remember that nothing is permanent.”

Speaking on a panel on Wednesday (18.05.22), the 29-year-old actress told the crowd: “Just to throw in a little bit of my journey, I felt like once I found out what was going on mentally... there was more freedom for me to be OK with what I had, because I was learning about it... It sets the example that it's a topic that can and should be discussed freely and without shame.”

Selena urged the importance of ensuring everyone in society having “access” to support.

She said: “When it comes to talking about and destigmatizing mental health, I want to ensure that everyone, no matter their age, their race, religion, sexual orientation, have access to services that support their mental health.”

The ‘Lose You to Love Me’ hitmaker outlined her belief “we need as much help as possible” getting resources to those in need as she urged for action.

The Rare Impact Fund founder first revealed her bipolar diagnosis while chatting to Miley Cyrus on Instagram Live in 2020.

Selena said: "After years of going through a lot of different things, I realized that I was bipolar and so when I go to know more information, it actually helps me, It doesn't scare me once I know it. I think people get scared of that, right?"



Chris Rock could host the 2023 Oscars

Chris Rock could be back

Chris Rock could host the 2023 Oscars.

The comedian was infamously smacked in the face by Will Smith for making a joke about the 'King Richard' actor's wife Jada Pinkett Smith's shaven hair while presenting an award at this year's Academy Awards.

Despite the controversy, viewing figures were up massively, and network ABC would consider having the 57-year-old stand-up back as a host.

Craig Erwich, the President of Entertainment at ABC, told Deadline: “My assessment of the Oscars was that it was really a successful year for the show. Obviously there was a lot of controversy, which overshadowed a lot of the positive things about the show, but I was really happy with the programme.

“Even before that very unfortunate moment, the show started off up year over year, and we came back in a big way.”

The awards were co-hosted by Wanda Sykes, Amy Schumer and Regina Hall, with audience numbers up by 60 per cent, with 16.6 million viewers.

Erwich added: “It was the biggest bounce back of any award show this season. If you look at what they were trying to do, which is really bring entertainment back to the programme, they had three amazing hosts, clips, and incredible musical performances, I thought it was a great way for the show to reclaim its place on the mantle. There’s always things to learn and we’ll endeavor to do even better next year.”

The 2023 ceremony will take place on January 24, 2023 at The Dolby Theater.



Carmen Electra has joined OnlyFans

Carmen Electra on OnlyFans

Carmen Electra has joined OnlyFans.

The 50-year-old actress says it was a "no-brainer" to become a content creator on the adult subscription site, and she has told fans and potential subscribers she will be posting swimwear and lingerie photos as well as beauty tutorials, and holiday content.

She said: "I just felt like, 'Yeah, I need to do this.'

"I, for once, have this opportunity to be my own boss and have my own creative vision to share with my fans without someone standing over me, telling me, 'Don't do this, don't do that. Cover up this.' "

Carmen, who is also a singer and model, became a global sex symbol thanks to her stint as Lani McKenzie in 'Baywatch' in the 1990s.

And the star, who is yet to share her first post, has admitted she will be able to be "a little bit more intimate" with her OnlyFans subscribers via one-on-one interactions.

She added to PEOPLE: "People are going to do what they want to do anyway with your photos, you might as well be in control of them and follow what you feel like doing inside."

Carmen also admitted if she has a desire to "show a little bit more" on the site then she won't have to put any strategically placed emojis over her body.

This comes after searches for Carmen on X-rated site PornHub increased following her appearance on basketball docu-series 'The Last Dance' in 2020, in which she discussed her marriage to ex-Chicago Bulls player Dennis Rodman.

The adult entertainment site announced at the time: "After the episode was released on April 26th, searches for Carmen Electra surged to more than 1.7 million, compared to her daily average of just 1,500 searches.

"That compares to previous celebrity search increases including Maitland Ward, Kylie Jenner and Belle Delphine when they were featured in pop culture media."



Charlie Watts left £30m fortune to family

Watts leaves family a fortune

Charlie Watts left his £30 million fortune to his family.

The Rolling Stones drummer died aged 80 on August 24, 2021, and his will includes most of his millions, bar the value of his estate in France.

UK Probate papers showed the rock veteran passed on £29.6 million to loved ones.

Most of the money will go to his widow Shirley, 83.

His beloved car collection is to be handed out according to wishes in his will.

Unlike the money, those instructions in his 14-page will were not made public.

Charlie had pulled out of the band’s 'No Filter' tour in America days before his death following a heart operation.

He had quit smoking in the late 1980s but fought throat cancer in 2004.

His will was drawn on May 31, 2017 and shows Charlie told executors to use the income from his fortune to support “beneficiaries”.

When Shirley dies, the inheritance will be passed down to Charlie’s daughter Seraphina, 54, his sister Linda Rootes, sisters-in-law Jackie Fenwick and Jill Minder and brother-in-law Stephen Shepherd.

Charlie, who had played with the Stones since 1963 and appeared on every album, was hailed as the nicest guy he knew by bandmate Keith Richards.

Charlie – known as the shy, quiet “sensible” Stone – married Shirley in 1964 before the band’s global fame.

They lived near Dolton in Devon, where they ran a successful Arab horse stud.



Charlize Theron and Gabriel Aubry hooking up?

New man for Charlize?

Charlize Theron and Gabriel Aubry are said to have been "hooking up".

The 46-year-old actress and the 45-year-old model - who has 14-year-old daughter Nahla with his ex-girlfriend Halle Berry, who he split from in 2010 - are said to be "very casual" and "enjoying each other".

A source told Us Weekly magazine: "Charlize has been hooking up with Gabriel Aubry.

"They’re very casual and enjoying each other. It’s nothing serious."

It comes after Charlize - who has daughters Jackson, 10, and August, eight, who she adopted in 2012 and 2015 respectively - and Gabriel were linked in 2017 after being photographed together.

But the 'Mad Max: Fury Road' star - who previously dated Sean Penn from 2013 to 2015 - insisted at the time she had only met Gabriel for around "three seconds", and that was because their children attended the same school.

She said at the time: "I’ve never met him. I met him for, like, three seconds. Like, passing I was just like, ‘Hi!’ because our kids go to the same school."

In 2020, Charlize told how one of her daughters was keen for her to be in a relationship again.

She explained at the time: "Two days ago I was in the car with my two girls and my little one said something like 'You need a boyfriend!'

"And I said, 'Actually, I don't. Right now, I feel really good,' and she's like, 'You know what, mom? You just need a boyfriend, you need a relationship!'

"She had this look in her eye like she had never really contemplated that that was even a possibility.

"Her mind was blown. But, I know that was the day that she realized there's a different possibility."

The 'Atomic Blonde' actress also joked she was dating her 'Bombshell' co-stars Nicole Kidman and Margot Robbie.

Charlize captioned a snap with the pair: "I feel like I have to be honest. I'm in a new relationship. With both these ladies. For real."
