  Billie Lourd wrote a tribute post to her late mother Carrie Fisher six years after Carrie’s death. In a Tuesday Instagram post, the Ticket to Paradise star acknowledged the six-year anniversary of her mother Carrie Fisher’s death. Captioning a photo of herself and her late mother together, Billie wrote, “It has been 6 years since my Momby died (feels like 2 but also like 705 at the same time?). And unlike most other years since she’s died, this year, these past two weeks have been some of the most joyful of my life.” Billie and her husband Austen Rydell welcomed their second child, Jackson, on 12 December. They also share two-year-old Kingston. “My mom is not here to meet either of them and isn’t here to experience any of the magic. Sometimes the magical moments can also be the hardest,” the actress shared in her post. “For anyone out there experiencing the reality of grief alongside the magic of life, I see you. You are not alone.” She advised anyone experiencing both “magical” and

Nicki Minaj and Kenneth Petty's Accuser Jennifer Hough Speaks Out In First TV Interview


The woman at the center of a lawsuit against Nicki Minaj and her husband Kenneth Petty is speaking out about the couple's alleged intimidation tactics.

Jennifer Hough said during an appearance with her lawyer Tyrone A. Blackburn on “The Real” that she wanted to speak to the public because she's "tired of being afraid."

"I feel like the actions that were taken in regards to this whole situation put me in a different type of fear at my age, and it was wrong," Hough told the daytime talk show hosts. "The only way not to be afraid is to continue to speak up."

 According to the New York State’s Sex Offender registry,Petty was convicted of attempted first-degree rape in April 1995 for the 1994 assault. 

Hough recalled the time she says Petty raped her before school that year. Hough encountered Petty at the bus stop and he put an object in her back and forced her into a nearby house. 

"I knew what he wanted," Hough said. "He pushed me down on the bed, we wrestled for my clothes." 

Hough said after Petty raped her he stood up in the nearby mirror and said: "I'm the man, I'm the man." 

When Petty's conviction was publicized on social media years later, Minaj claimed Hough and Petty were in a relationship and that Petty was 15 at the time. Co-host Adrienne Bailon asked Hough how Minaj's claims made her feel. 

"It was like reliving it again because it was a lie, it wasn't true, we both were 16, we were never in a relationship. I just felt woman to woman that was wrong of (Minaj)," Hough said.

Hough filed a lawsuit against Minaj and Petty in the Eastern District of New York in August. In the complaint obtained by USA TODAY, the plaintiff brought several claims against the "Super Bass" rapper and Petty, including witness intimidation, emotional distress, harassment, assault and battery.

Petty accepted a plea deal on Aug. 8. for failing to register as a sex offender in the state of California, according to legal documents obtained by USA TODAY. 

Hough's attorney has requested that Judge Michael W. Fitzgerald reject the plea deal.

Blackburn wrote in the filing that Minaj, 38, and Petty, 43, intimidated Hough, directly and indirectly, pressuring her to not speak about 1994 rape charges against Petty after the case became public knowledge on social media.

Hough told "The Real" an associate of Minaj and Petty came to her home and put $20,000 in her lap in exchange for silence. Hough declined the offer and said she later received a message from the associate that she "should've taken the money because they are going to put that money on my head.”

Minaj and Petty were served court summons for Hough's harassment lawsuit in September. According to court documents, Petty received both he and Minaj's summons last week in person at their home in Calabasas, California. 

Hough is asking for a trial by jury for her claims and plans to seek damages as well as statutory damages and attorney's fees. 

How true could this be ?

Stormzy Fanboys Over Taylor Swift Backstage At MTV EMAs

 The pair both attended the MTV European Music Awards (EMAs) in Dusseldorf, Germany on Sunday (13.11.22) - where the US pop megastar dominated the evening, earning four gongs - and the Grime star was successful in his pursuit of grabbing a snap with the 'Karma' hitmaker backstage at the bash. He posted on his Instagram Story: "Man’s trying to get a selfie with Taylor Swift! Man’s running around." The 'Vossi Bop' hitmaker then captioned a selfie tagging the singer: "@taylorswift can I have a selfie please." He then updated fans: "Mans going to meet Taylor.

The 29-year-old rapper has made a habit out of fanboying over his idols backstage at awards ceremonies. In 2020, Stormzy interrupted Billie Eilish's backstage interview at t

Drake Is Offended By Dad’s Tattoo Of His Face

    Drake shared that he isn’t too fond of his dad tattoo of his face. See the ink in question that has Drizzy wondering "why you do me like this." Drizzy took to Instagram to make fun of his dad Dennis Graham's tattoo—which happens to be a portrait of Drake's face. "I was just sitting here thinking why you do me like this," the rapper wrote on Aug. 8, "We family," he added, along with laughing-crying emojis to get the joke across. Guess it's safe to assume Drake isn't a fan of the ink, which was done nearly five years ago. And since that first tattoo session, Dennis has done his best to get the tattoo changed. "Hahaha I had 16 people to try and straighten this out," Dennis commented, "they're hurting me." In a separate comment, Dennis added, "I love you and miss you." While Drake has been known to have a few portrait tattoos of his own, such as Lil Wayne, Denzel Washington, and even his dad's mugshot.
