Forbes is out with their list of the top 100 highest-paid entertainers. If you want to read the entire list, head to Forbes.com, but I’ll at least tell you the top five. Diddy is number one, earning $130 million last year. That’s all thanks in part to his Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour, his partnership in Ciroc vodka, and the partial sale of his Sean John clothing line. Diddy earned enough to beat out Beyonce, who took second place with $105 million. Author J.K. Rowling placed third with $95 million, followed closely by Drake with $94 million. And right behind him in fifth place is soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo with $93 million.
RadarOnline.com is reporting that Tiger Woods is headed back to rehab so he can retain joint custody of his kids. According to sources, Tiger has reserved the ENTIRE male inpatient unit at the Jupiter Medical Center near his home in Florida. Apparently it’s in his custody agreement that if he gets caught up in a scandal — like his recent arrest for driving while under the influence of prescription meds, for instance — he could face losing the 20 percent custody he has now of 9-year-old daughter, Sam, and 8-year-old son, Charlie.
After about four hours of deliberations, the jury in Bill Cosby’s sexual assault trial retired for the night. They will pick up right where they left off today. Bill is accused of drugging and assaulting a woman at his home outside Philadelphia 13 years ago. His defense team is arguing that it was consensual. Bill never took the stand to defend himself. His accuser, Andrea Constand, testified for more than seven hours. Bill’s wife Camille never showed up for any of the testimony, but she was there for the closing arguments.
Katy Perry said she forgives Taylor Swift for all she’s done to her and she’s sorry for anything she’s done to Taylor Swift. But then there’s the matter of that “Swish Swish” song Katy wrote about their feud, which she now has to sing. A lot. But yesterday when she ended her 72-hour YouTube live streaming event with a concert, she proved she meant what she said about forgiveness and moving on. She changed the lyric in “Swish Swish” from “Don’t you come for me” to “God bless you on your journey, oh baby girl.”
Witnesses told TMZ that “Bachelor in Paradise” contestant Corinne Olympios was completely wasted a couple hours after whatever she and DeMario Jackson did in the swimming pool that caused the entire production to be shut down. And that’s exactly what Corinne is saying — that she was black-out drunk and incapable of consenting to whatever DeMario did to her. And now she’s lawyered up, saying that producers should’ve put a stop to what was happening. But sources who have seen the footage told TMZ that Corinne seemed completely lucid during the entire incident. DeMario says the same thing. Yes, she was drunk, but Corinne seemed lucid to him, too. And according to E! News, a producer assigned to Corinne but who wasn’t there when this incident occurred, who hadn’t seen the footage, and who only heard about what happened from second and third-hand accounts, is the one who filed the complaint.
