Billie Lourd Pays Tribute to Late Mother Carrie Fisher on Sixth Anniversary of her Death

  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

Johnny Depp's Attorneys Played Recorded Conversations From His Marriage As He Testified That Amber Heard Was Abusive

Depp testified on Wednesday that he has never hit a woman as he pushed back against his ex-wife's accusations of abuse.

Johnny Depp displays the middle finger of his hand as he testifies during his defamation trial against Heard in Fairfax, Virginia, April 20.

Johnny Depp continued to testify on Wednesday that his ex-wife Amber Heard was the aggressor in their relationship, describing how part of his finger was severed when she threw a vodka bottle at him and playing for the court a recorded conversation in which she admitted to hitting him.


Depp is suing Heard for $50 million for defamation after she wrote a 2018 op-ed for the Washington Post in which she said she was a victim of domestic violence. Even though Heard didn't name Depp in the op-ed, his lawyers have said it's implied that it's about him — and they're seeking $50 million in damages that include lost movie roles and other opportunities following the allegations that Depp was abusive.


During his testimony Wednesday, Depp's legal team played audio recordings that he made during his and Heard's marriage. In one, Depp tells Heard that she threw pots and pans at him, which she confirms. In another, Depp tells Heard that she had kicked the bathroom door, which hit him, but she replies she couldn't remember because she had been on Ambien at the time.


During another recorded conversation, Heard admits to hitting Depp but disagrees with him when he says she punched him.


"I did not punch you," Heard says in the audio recording. "I did not fucking deck you. I fucking was hitting you.


"You're a fucking baby," Heard continues. "You are such a baby. Grow the fuck up, Johnny. I did start a physical fight."


Heard is expected to take the stand herself later in the trial, and during opening statements, her attorneys said she was physically and sexually abused by Depp on multiple occasions during their marriage — often when he was using drugs or alcohol.


In one instance, Heard's lawyer said that Depp hit her after Heard made fun of one of his tattoos. On Wednesday, Depp testified that never happened and that he has "never struck" Heard or any woman.


"I'm certainly not going to strike a woman if she decides to make fun of a tattoo I have on my body," Depp said. "That's like going into someone's journal and picking out things you don't like."


Depp and Heard met in 2009 while filming The Rum Diary, and they married in 2015. About a year later, Heard filed for divorce and accused Depp of assaulting her. Depp then accused her of “alleging abuse” to “secure a premature financial resolution.”


During his testimony on Wednesday, Depp also described the incident in Australia in 2015 in which the tip of his finger was severed. Though Heard's attorneys have said that he injured himself, Depp testified that the cut happened when she threw a vodka bottle at him.


The altercation came after Depp locked himself in a bathroom to hide from Heard while she was berating him about signing a post-nuptial agreement, Depp said. When Depp heard Heard leave, he went downstairs and poured himself shots of vodka. When she found him, she threw two vodka bottles at him, the second one severing his finger, he said. Depp said she also put out his cigarette on his cheek.


When he went to the emergency room, Depp said he lied about what happened, telling the doctor that he smashed his finger in a door.


"I lied because I didn't want to disclose that it was what it was," Depp said on Wednesday. "I didn't want to disclose that it had been Ms. Heard that had thrown the vodka bottle at me and then took my finger off. I didn't want to get her in trouble. I tried to keep things as copacetic and easy as possible for everyone."


Depp also described in detail the sensation of heat he felt as he looked at the exposed finger bone as the wound gushed blood.


"I don't know what a nervous breakdown feels like, but that was probably the closest I've ever been," Depp told the court. "Nothing made sense, and I knew in my mind and my heart that this is not life ... No one should have to go through this."


During another incident in 2015, Depp said Heard threw punches at him and when he tried to stop her by wrapping his arms around her, she accused him of head butting her and breaking her nose.


Later, she showed Depp a Kleenex with red on it, indicating her nose had bled, he said. After Heard threw away the tissue, Depp said he inspected it and that it had red nail polish on it, not blood.


Heard was also physically abusive after he was late to her 30th birthday dinner in April 2016, he said. The next day, after she had left to go to Coachella, he asked his security team to go with him to get some things from his Los Angeles penthouse. His security told him that wouldn't be a good idea, then showed him a photo of what Depp believed was human poop on his side of the bed, he said.


"I laughed," Depp told the court. "It was so outside. It was so bizarre and so grotesque that I could only laugh."


After Heard was granted a temporary restraining order from Depp in May 2016, Depp said agents and producers stopped calling him to work with him. He said while touring with his band that summer, he hid the pain he felt from his ex's accusations.


"I can remember finishing the show, getting on the bus with the other band members, and just going to the back of the bus, and just, you had to get it out," Depp said. "So I just sat in the back of the bus and just cried and hid it from people."


Depp said after Heard's op-ed was published, he lost "nothing less of everything."

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.

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.

  Kid Cudi is extending himself to Lil Nas X . For Time's 100 Most Influential People of 2021 list, published on Wednesday (Sept. 15), Cudi wrote about Lil Nas X and declared his support for the "Industry Baby" artist after the 22 year old tweeted that Black male rappers aren't interested in working with him. "When I saw the tweet about Nas’ album Montero not featuring Black male artists, and he replied that 'maybe a lot of them just don’t wanna work with me,' that made me sad," Cudi wrote. "There’s a homophobic cloud over hip-hop, and he’s going to break that s--- down. We have to stand with him. I’m going to do whatever I have to do to let him know -- you have my support. When we do our song together, however trippy the video is, let’s get sexy with it." After seeing Lil Nas' tweet, Cudi replied, "N---a I'll work w u and frolic in rose gardens w u and singin about my pain." In a follow up tweet, Lil Nas told his follo
