North West proves to be total style queen as she joins mum Kim Kardashian for Paris Fashion Week
Kim Kardashian proved that she is passing on her fashion knowledge to eldest daughter North West as they jetted to France.The Kardashians star, 41, was spotted with the nine-year-old – who she shares with estranged husband Kanye West – on the streets of Paris in time for the Haute Couture shows, causing a stir as they made their way around the city.There was no ignoring the mom-of-four as she stepped out in very bright neon green trousers which covered her heels, coupled with a camo print T-shirt.She clutched a sparkly silver bag for the getaway, completing the look with black sunglasses.North was every inch the fashionista that her famous parents had raised her to be, rocking an oversized blue bomber jacket and dark trousers, paired with dreamy chunky boots.The youngster accessorized simply with blue sunnies and a small black bag.Kim is no stranger to taking her children along on a work trip, but it hasn’t always worked out in the past.The Skims businesswoman recently made headlines when she was forced to scold sons Saint and Psalm after they interrupted her live interview.She made an appearance on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon last month to promote the launch of her skincare brand, SKKN, when the youngsters caused chaos from behind the scenes.At one point, Jimmy was distracted by noises from the audience and looked over to where the little ones were sitting.Following his eyeline, Kim put her foot down, telling Saint and Psalm to quiet down.‘Guys, can you stop? This is your first time at work with me, please,’ she urged.‘My two boys are here and I hear them making so much noise,’ she told the audience of the interruption.‘Guys, this is your first time at work with me, don’t mess this up, come on!’She attempted to

Rihanna boots Kim Kardashian to become America’s youngest self-made female billionaire with net worth of $1,400,000,000 by age 34
not a typo and is in fact Rihanna’s net worth – our jaws are on the floor too.The Umbrella hitmaker has overtaken Kim Kardashian as America’s youngest self-made female billionaire with a net worth of $1.4billion (£1.17bn) at the age of just 34.But it’s not all bad news for Kim K, 41, whose net worth is just a measly $1.8billion (£1.5bn), yanno, nothing major or anything…Kim’s fortune comes from a variety of areas, with her reality TV career bringing in a 10-figure fortune, along with her mobile game, cosmetics brand KKW Beauty, and shapewear brand Skims.Skims, for example, doubled its valuation to $3.2billion (£2.3bn) in less than a year.But, Rihanna’s got her fingers in plenty of pies too, with much of the Barbados export’s fortune coming from her successful cosmetics line, Fenty Beauty.Rihanna – real name Robyn Rihanna Fenty – co owns the company with French luxury retailer LVMH.Fenty Beauty – which has taken make-up lovers by storm with everything from foundations to lip stains to fragrances – generated more than $550million (£419m) in revenue in 2020.While the musician’s fortune mostly comes from her stakes in the fast-growing company, she also has a 30% stake in Savage x Fenty, her lingerie line which raised money at a $1billion (£838k) valuation in February 2021.When it comes to the richest self-made women in the US overall, Rihanna sits pretty at number 21 on the list, but she’s the only billionaire under 40.The youngest non-billionaire on the list is Kim’s sister Kylie Jenner, 24, who was originally crowned Forbes’ youngest self-made billionaire in 2018 before her net worth was recalculated.

R Kelly is suing the Metropolitan Center Brooklyn for placing him on suicide watch due to being a ‘high-profile inmate’ and for ‘purely punitive reasons’, says his lawyer.The I Believe I Can Fly singer was sentenced to 30 years in prison last week after being convicted of sex trafficking and racketeering charges.He faced life behind bars for masterminding an elaborate scheme to entice and sexually exploit young aspiring singers and underage children.The producer was previously found guilty on all nine counts against him, including multiple counts of racketeering, with the charges relating to bribery and forced labour, by a jury in September last year.Kelly – who denied all charges – was also found in violation of an anti-sex trafficking law known as the Mann Act.The disgraced performer and producer is now suing MDC Brooklyn – the detention centre where he is being held – for placing him on suicide watch as a form of ‘cruel and unusual punishment’, as he denies being suicidal, according to court documents obtained by People magazine.In a statement to the publication, Kelly’s lawyer Jennifer Bonjean said: ‘MDC has a policy of placing high profile individuals under the harsh conditions of suicide watch whether they are suicidal or not (this was done recently with Ghislaine Maxwell).’Claiming that the prison ‘is being run like a gulag’, Bonjean added: ‘My partner and I spoke with Mr.

See how I paved the road for you b****es??’.Madonna posted the message alongside a gif of her dancing while on the tour.One concert in Rome did go ahead on in July 1990, despite protests from Pope John Paul II, who urged members of the public not to attend.Earlier this year, Madonna asked Pope Francis if she could meet him, stating that she is a ‘good Catholic.’‘Hello @Pontifex Francis – I’m a good Catholic. I Swear! I mean I don’t Swear!’, she tweeted.‘It’s been a few decades since my last confession.

Khloe Kardashian is reportedly dating a new man as she finally moves on from ex Tristan Thompson.The reality star, 37, was in an on-off relationship with the NBA star for years, their romance repeatedly marred by cheating scandals.They share daughter True, four, together, and were recently spotted out together with their daughter but it appears it was a strictly co-parenting outing.It had appeared Khloe and Tristan were veering towards patching things up last year, with Tristan spending lockdown with Khloe and his daughter, however things went south when Tristan was found to have fathered a child with another woman.Not it seems Khloe may finally have moved on, as she is reported to be dating a new man after sister Kim Kardashian set them up.As reported by People, Khloe is in ‘the early stages’ of a new relationship with a mystery man – a private equity investor who she was introduced to at a dinner party some weeks ago.Khloe’s mystery man has not been named, but Khloe is said to be feeling ‘really good’ about the new romance.The mum-of-one had gone to lunch with Tristan and her daughter after True’s dance recital this week, but the source stressed this was strictly part of their co-parenting and the former couple barely speak otherwise.A recent episode of The Kardashians saw Khloe learn of Tristan being unfaithful to her again – at the same time the rest of the world did, via the media.She branded this ‘an additional slap in my face’.Chicago Bulls player Tristan fathered a baby son with Maralee Nichols, born in December, sleeping with her on his 30th birthday when he had been reunited with Khloe.Tristan accepted he was the father of baby Theo following the results of a paternity test, issuing a lengthy public apology at

Martin Lawrence refuses to pay wedding bill if his daughter marries Eddie Murphy’s son amid their children’s sweet romance
Martin Lawrence has spoken for the first time about his daughter dating Eddie Murphy’s son – and let’s just say he probably won’t be forking out for the expensive wedding. Bad Boys actor Martin, 57, and Mrs Doubtfire star Eddie, 61, have been friends for decades having starred alongside each other twice, in 1992’s Boomerang and 1999’s Life, but they probably never imagined there was a chance they could actually become family. In a sweet twist of fate, it emerged last year that Martin’s daughter Jasmine and Eddie’s son Eric are very much dating and in love. Eric, 32, let the cat out of the bag in June 2021 when he posted a sweet photo of him and Jasmine, 26, cosied up together with the heartwarming caption: ‘Head over heels in LOVE with YOU.’ Their famous parents hadn’t addressed the sizzling romance publicly but Martin was quizzed about it during a recent TV interview and he spilled just a little tea. During his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live last week, the Big Momma’s House star said of he and Eddie: ‘We haven’t talked about it.‘We kind of just stay out of their business and let them do their own thing, and respect their thing.’ When asked about the tradition of the bride’s father paying for the nuptials, Martin joked: ‘I’m gonna try to get Eddie to pay for it.’ Eric and Jasmine have given fans just a glimpse of their love over the past year. In July 2021, Eddie’s son shared a video from his 32nd birthday celebrations and tagged Jasmine as the videographer. Then in January this year, he shared a set of photos of them posing together on her 26th birthday, alongside a sweet caption. ‘Happy Birthday, Beautiful! Thank you for being such a blessing in my life,’ Eric began his post. ‘I am so fortunate to experience your

Johnny Depp debuts newly clean-shaven look while rocking out with Jeff Beck at Finland tour show
Johnny Depp looked noticeably different as he hit the stage on Jeff Beck’s tour over the weekend. The Edward Scissorhands actor is continuing to perform as a special guest on Jeff’s world tour, which has moved over to mainland Europe following a stint in the UK earlier this month. On Sunday, the pair shared the stage in Finland to perform at the Helsinki Blues Festival, and some fans no doubt did a double-take as Johnny arrived sporting a fresh look. It appears the 59-year-old has given himself a mini makeover in the middle of the tour, having debuted a clean-shaven look after getting rid of the goatee beard he wore during his six-week libel trial against ex-wife Amber Heard. Johnny seemed to be in great spirits as he soaked in the warm reception from the audience, and waved and smiled at them while strumming the guitar on-stage alongside his frequent musical collaborator Jeff. The pair have grown close in recent months and are even set to release a joint album in July. Last week, they dropped the first single from the record, This Is A Song For Miss Hedy Lamarr, which was inspired by the early Hollywood starlet. Johnny and Jeff, 77, first met in 2016 and the album’s been in the works since 2019, when the actor was also working with Alice Cooper’s supergroup Hollywood Vampires.Sources close to the Pirates of the Caribbean actor have said he is now focusing on rebuilding his career after going through the gruelling trial against Amber. Johnny filed a lawsuit against the Aquaman actress over an article she wrote detailing her experience with domestic abuse.

Jennifer Lopez was seen visiting fiance Ben Affleck on the set of his new project.The musician, 52, and actor, 49, have been smitten with each other since rekindling their relationship last year.JLo and Ben had, famously, fallen in love in the early 2000s, their romance coining the term Bennifer.They were engaged to be married in 2003 but, partly due to the pressures of being one of the most famous celebrity couples in the world, called it quits shortly before the wedding.Now their relationship is more than back on track and stronger than ever, with Ben popping the question yet again while Jennifer was in the bath this year.Ben is currently working in LA on an as-yet unnamed project for Nike, and this week future wife Jennifer visited him on the set.The pair were spotted walking hand-in-hand together to Ben’s trailer in the LA sun, Jennifer wearing an absolutely gorgeous summer dress.Dressed in all-white, Jennifer’s simple, flowing dress featured ruffled sleeves and collar, perfect for keeping cool in the heat.The pair looked calm and relaxed in each other’s company, easily linking hands as they strolled across the set.Ben dressed casually, in a maroon t-shirt and blue jeans, wearing sunglasses to protect his eyes.Jennifer was later seen showing her daughter, Emme, around the set, with the teenager holding on to her mum’s hand.However, photographs of the pair show Emme appearing to be more interested in her phone than what her mum is saying, which we’re pretty sure parents of teenagers will find fairly relatable.Jennifer shares 14-year-old twins Emme and Max with ex-husband Marc Anthony while Ben has daughters Violet, 16 and Seraphina, 13, and son Samuel, 10, with ex-wife Jennifer Garner.There’s no solid wedding plans in

Kim Kardashian ‘didn’t damage Marilyn Monroe’s iconic dress’ at Met Gala, Ripley’s bosses confirm
Kim Kardashian has been defended by Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! museum over the decision to wear the iconic Marilyn Monroe dress to the Met Gala.There has been a huge amount of discussion surrounding the 41-year-old donning the late Hollywood legend’s gown at the exclusive event last month, where she was joined by Pete Davidson on the red carpet.Following her appearance, new pictures and videos appearing to show the ‘damage’ that was done to the outfit following the reality star’s brief stint in front of the cameras sparked fresh outrage on social media.However, Ripley’s bosses have now addressed the controversy in a new statement, insisting that she did not damage the dress, which the late star famously wore to serenade John F Kennedy on his birthday in 1962.‘Kim Kardashian’s walk up the Metropolitan Museum’s stairs at this year’s Met Gala caused quite the stir, but one thing Ripley’s Believe It or Not! can say with confidence is that it did not cause damage to Marilyn Monroe’s famed “Happy Birthday” dress from 1962,’ it read.‘Kim Kardashian wearing the “Happy Birthday” dress has been hotly contested, but the fact remains that she did not, in any way, damage the garment in the short amount of time it was worn at the Met Gala.’‘From the bottom of the Met steps, where Kim got into the dress, to the top where it was returned, the dress was in the same condition it started in,’ Ripley’s VP of Publishing and Licensing, Amanda Joiner continued.Ripley’s acquired the outfit in 2016, and the statement pointed towards a 2017 report on its condition, which said that ‘a number of the seams are pulled and worn. This is not surprising given how delicate the material is.

Juror in Johnny Depp and Amber Heard defamation case suggests they were ‘both abusive towards each other’
supports HTML5 videoA juror in Johnny Depp’s trial has spoken out about his bombshell trial with Amber Heard, suggesting that they ‘were both abusive to each other’.The Pirates of the Caribbean actor, 58, sued his ex-wife for defamation over an op-ed she wrote in 2018, discussing her experience with domestic abuse.The jury found in his favor and awarded him $10million, while the Aquaman actress, 36, won one count of her countersuit, getting $2m in damages.An anonymous male juror – one of the seven people making the decision – spoke to Good Morning America about the decision, stating that the majority felt Heard was more the aggressor.He also claimed that her emotional testimony was ‘not realistic’, telling the outlet: ‘The crying, the facial expressions, the staring at the jury… All of us were very uncomfortable.‘She would answer one question and she would be crying, and two seconds later she would turn ice cold…‘Some of us used the expression “crocodile tears”.’The juror in question said that he personally didn’t believe that Depp ever hit Heard, but that they were ‘mutually abusive’ towards each other.‘Ultimately, what I think is truthful is that they were abusive towards each other,’ he said.‘They had their husband-wife arguments. They were both yelling at each other.
