Kanye West has made one 24 year old very rich very quickly. If you didn’t see the MTV awards last night, Kanye made this big announcement…
A guy named Tramall Ferguson registered the website “kanyeforpresident.com” back in April. He said he figured an ego case like Kanye would eventually try to run for president. Since the big announcement last night, Tramall’s gotten multiple offers to buy the domain name, one bid as high as $80k. He says he’s waiting to see if Kanye wants to buy it but if not, it’ll go to the highest bidder. Finally, someone else is benefitting from Kanye’s ego.
Robin Williams’ family are still fighting over his estate…and this time it’s all about bikes. Robin was an avid cycler and owned dozens of professional bikes, some worth tens of thousands of dollars, definitely not from the Walmart clearance rack. The total value of all his cycling gear is estimated at over a million bucks, so naturally his widow and his kids are fighting over who gets everything. His widow Susan wants her fair share and is taking it to court, but the three kids say everything is spelled out clearly in Robin’s will and there’s no need for a judge to get involved.
The woman killed in Bruce Jenner’s car accident back in February is now being sued. Yes it sounds weird but try to keep up…Bruce rear ended a Lexus, sending it careening into opposing traffic and hitting a hummer and killing the driver of the Lexus, Kim Howe. Now the occupants of the hummer are suing Howe’s estate for $18.5 million, claiming she was negligent and therefore responsible. Sources say another suit is also coming soon against Caitlyn Jenner. I’m not sure how you can charge two people with causing the same accident but I’m not an ambulance chaser
Josh Duggar is apologizing for his mistakes and making amends with people he’s hurt…no, just kidding, he’s gone into hiding. His family says he’s checked into rehab, even though he’s not suffering from any substance addiction. So I guess it’s cheating rehab? And his parents Jim Bob and Michelle, who have been supportive thus far, made their feelings known today; “His wrong choices have deeply hurt his precious wife and children and have negatively affected so many others. He has also brought great insult to the values and faith we hold dear.”
The members of One Direction are adamant they’re not breaking up for good. The news broke on the weekend they’re taking a “hiatus” which everyone took to mean the group is done. Louis Tomlinson tweeted that they’re not going anywhere and Niall Horan went out of his way to stress that the group will get back together after they have some time to rest and work on solo projects. Just like how NSYNC is getting back together any day now.
Another lawsuit for the creators of Empire. A guy named Jon Astor-White is suing executive producers Danny Strong and Lee Daniels along with Imagine Entertainment and 21st Century Fox, claiming he came up with the premise of the hit show 8 years ago. Astor-White says he pitched a show called King Solomon starring Richard Roundtree (yes, Shaft). He’s suing for, get this, half a billion dollars PLUS additional damages. He’s gonna have to fight Marvin Gaye III for the cash…he also sued the show’s creators a couple weeks ago.
