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.

You are not alone.” She advised anyone experiencing both “magical” and

Oscar De La Hoya Accused of Sexual Assault by Former Tequila Brand Employee

Boxing legend, Oscar de La Hoya has been accused of sexual assault in a new civil lawsuit filed Wednesday in Los Angeles.
Oscar de La Hoya

A tequila company executive accused De La Hoya of sexually assaulting her during a trip to the Casa Mexico Tequila distillery in Mexico in March 2020, and then again when they returned to Los Angeles.

The lawsuit, filed in the Los Angeles Superior Court, claims the woman then 'pushed him from the bed and walked him to his room, opened his door, and immediately returned to her own room'.

The tequila company executive said the next morning, after noticing that De La Hoya was missing from a group that was supposed to tour the distillery, she went to his room to wake him up.

There, the woman, who remains anonymous, claimed De La Hoya 'pulled (her) into his bed, where he sexually assaulted her'.

Then after the group returned to Los Angeles, a group of executives including De La Hoya, who is a partner of Casa Mexico Tequila, went to dinner at a restaurant before returning to the former boxer's house.    

At some point, when De La Hoya was alone with (the woman), he revealed and retrieved a sexual object from a stored collection in his house. Without (her) consent, De La Hoya forcibly inserted the sexual object into (her) body,' the lawsuit said according to the LA Times.

The woman, who was relatively new at the company, said she told Casa Mexico founder Don Buccio about the second alleged sexual assault but the company did nothing. 

The Tequila company executive said in the lawsuit she suffered sexual harassment, gender discrimination, retaliation and wrongful termination whilst working at the company.

'(She) has been severely impacted and has filed a lawsuit to hold (De La Hoya) accountable and those perpetuating toxic masculinity and a hostile work environment where her abuse was not just tolerated, but encouraged and condoned by Casa Mexico's executives, Michael Gooch and Robert Crossan,' the alleged victim's lawyer, Sylvia Torres-Guillén, told the Times.   

'As a survivor of this abuse, she wants others to know this behavior is unacceptable and it doesn't matter who you are. We will seek justice on her behalf.'

De La Hoya has denied the allegations and said: 'With the 24-hour news cycle we all find ourselves in, more often than not, malicious and unjust accusations are interpreted as truth without the evidence to support their erroneous claims.

'I am confident my legal team will resolve this matter and prove my innocence.

Last year, De La Hoya claimed he was raped when he was 13 by a woman in her 30s, while at a boxing competition in Hawaii.

'I was raped at 13, from a woman, an older woman,' he told the Los Angeles Times. 'Thirteen, lost my virginity over being, you know, being raped, basically. 

'I was in Hawaii, I think, at some tournament. She was over 35.'

'You suppress everything,' he said.

'You're living this life, the Golden Boy, but, oh s***, wait, that's still there.

'Like I never, like, thought about it, I never processed it, I never really thought how my feelings are … until one day it just comes out, and you don't know how to deal with it.'

In 1998, when De La Hoya was 25, he was accused of having raped a 15-year-old in June 1996, at a Mexico hotel. The case was settled out of court in 2001.

In 2019 he was accused of inviting a woman, a registered nurse, to his Pasadena, California home in November 2017 and sexually assaulting her.

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.
