‘Leaving Neverland’ Director Fires Back At Michael Jackson Estate

Grammy winners was leaked… Models subpoenaed for the Fyre Festival… Kourtney Kardashian’s new beau… Blac Chyna was nowhere to be found…and ‘Leaving Neverland’ director fires back at Michael Jackson estate

Last night on Twitter, the list of Grammy winners was leaked. It showed that Cardi B is going to win Record of the Year for “I Like It,” and that Lady Gaga will win Song of the Year for “Shallow.” Want to know who wins Album of the Year? That would be H.E.R. But Taylor Swift wins Best Pop Album for “Reputation.” But the Grammys aren’t until February 10, so how did all these winners get leaked? Well, they weren’t. The Academy released a statement saying, “There is no legitimacy to this. GRAMMY Awards results are not shared, even with Recording Academy staff members, until the day of the GRAMMY Awards ceremony, when names of the recipients are delivered by Deloitte in sealed envelopes.”

Kendall Jenner’s company and other modeling agencies for Bella Hadid and Emily Ratajkowski could be slapped with subpoenas soon in connection to the Fyre Festival. The Festival’s organizer Billy McFarland — who’s now serving prison time for fraud — hired a group of models to promote the event. Right now, there’s an investigation into where the $26 million in investor money was spent before the whole thing crashed and burned and Fyre Festival LLC went bankrupt. Apparently, over $5 million was spent on just getting these models to promote the event on their Instagram. While Billy sits in jail, that’s not going to be the end of it for him. There’s a $100 million class-action lawsuit against him and JaRule.

Kourtney Kardashian sure has a type. YOUNG! After dating Younes Bendjima, who was 14 years younger, Kourtney moved on to 20-year-old model and actor Luka Sabbat who is 19 years younger. But now Kourtney is going back up the age ladder just a bit. Her new fling is 26-year-old David Dee Duron and he’s a CPA! But this guy seems really solid. It sounds like they met in church!

So Rob Kardashian goes to Blac Chyna’s house to drop off their daughter Dream for mommy’s visitation. Chyna was nowhere to be found. No call. No nothing. She just wasn’t there to get her daughter, as scheduled. Thanks to social media, it didn’t take Rob long to find out where his mother’s child was — in Hawaii partying and humping with her new boyfriend, Kid Buu. Well, now it’s her EX-boyfriend Kid Buu because police rushed to their room at the Ritz Carlton about 7am Monday. According to TMZ, Chyna accused Buu of cheating which led to a violent argument where she allegedly scratched him and he allegedly threw her up against the wall and choked her. Meantime, Chyna says Rob should’ve just left Dream with her nanny.

The director of “Leaving Neverland” is firing back at Michael Jackson’s family for denouncing his documentary and calling the movie’s two accusers “opportunists.” Dan Reed told The Hollywood Reporter, “They have a very precious asset to protect. Every time a song plays, a cash register goes ‘ka-ching.’ It doesn’t surprise me that they’ve come out fighting in defense of their asset.” And as far as Wade Robson and James Safechuck — the two men who claim they were abused by Michael — Dan said they weren’t paid at all for being in this movie. Their only goal is to educate people as to how child sexual abuse happens and how the consequences play out later in life. “Leaving Neverland” debuted at Sundance Film Festival and will be on HBO in March. At the festival, the movie received a standing ovation and the audience was said to be visibly shaken. They even had mental health workers waiting in the lobby for anyone who needed to talk after seeing it.
