Wendy Williams update… Chris Brown is being sued… Brad Pitt & Lykke Li dating rumors… Kanye West Announces ‘Donda 2’… and Taylor Swift fan crashed his car into her building
Producers for “The Wendy Williams Show” announced yesterday that they’ll continue to have guest hosts through March 4, but they’re leaving the door open for Wendy to return after that. Page Six asked Wendy’s rep if she’s just going to sit out the rest of the season, and the rep said, “Don’t overreach.” Who are they kidding at this point? So for the time being, they’ll continue to rotate guest hosts, including Michael Rappaport, Fat Joe, and Sherri Shepherd, who seems like the most likely choice to replace Wendy if they finally pull the plug on her show altogether.
Chris Brown is facing yet another lawsuit and some really serious allegations. A woman is suing him for $20M, claiming that on December 30, 2020, Chris raped her on a yacht anchored outside Diddy’s home on Star Island in Miami. The unidentified woman says she was FaceTiming with a friend who was partying on the boat when Chris grabbed the phone and begged her to come party with them. When she got there, the woman claims Chris came right up and offered her a drink, which she accepted. But after he filled her cup the second time, the woman claims she began to feel “a sudden, unexplained change in consciousness.” According to her lawsuit, she became “disoriented, physically unstable, and started to fall in and out of sleep.” That’s when she said Chris led her to a bedroom and assaulted her. She says she mumbled for him to stop, but he just ignored her. And the next day, the woman claims Chris texted her and demanded that she take the morning after pill, which she did. Speaking on her behalf, the woman’s lawyer said she didn’t report the alleged assault at the time it happened because she was embarrassed.
I believe it was Brad Pitt who told his female friend at one point, “If you’re photographed with me, we’re dating.” However, Brad Pitt has never been photographed with this Swedish singer named Lykke Li, and yet a rumor started online yesterday when the Instagram gossip account DeuxMoi got a tip that Brad and Lykke were spotted having dinner at some popular pasta palace in Hollywood and that they’ve been secretly dating for a while. But Page Six did some digging and found out that Brad did meet Lykke a couple years ago through some mutual artsy friends, but he hasn’t seen her since.
Kanye West — or, Ye — has announced he’s dropping his new album “Donda 2” on 2/22/22. We’ll see if he sticks to it this time around because his last album was delayed time and time again. That very same day — 2/22/22 — Kanye’s got another exciting thing happening. He’s doing a Yeezy collaboration with a streetwear brand called Skid Row Fashion Week. This is a company that employs the homeless at its factory and donates a portion of all proceeds to helping people living on Skid Row. But 100 PERCENT of the Yeezy collab will help hire more people struggling with homelessnesses to work at the Skid Row Fashion Week factory. They’re also planning a fashion show with homeless people as the models. They want to use items found on Skid Row and integrate them into the outfits. One of the ideas is a trash bag puffer jacket.
Taylor Swift has been targeted by another obsessed fan. Early Thursday morning, 31-year-old Morgan Mank from Virginia got drunk and crashed his car into the Manhattan building where Taylor has a townhouse. A witness said he watched as Morgan drove the wrong way down a street and crashed into the building at 3:15 am! He them jumped out of the car, ripped off the intercom and started mumbling stuff about Taylor. He was arrested and taken to a hospital for a psychiatric evaluation. Morgan was building up to this moment for the past couple days. On Tuesday, he tweeted at Taylor, calling her “insane” and telling her to get her “s*** together.” On Wednesday, Morgan got on Facebook and posted a link to Taylor’s song “Champagne Problems” and then updated his status to “I need a vacation.” And about 2 hours before crashing into her building Thursday morning, Morgan posted a photo of a bottle of vodka inside a car, captioning it, “My new baby.” Taylor may want to consider putting this townhome on the market and relocating because she keeps having problems with stalkers who know where she lives. Back in 2019, Roger Alvarado was arrested for trying to break into her townhouse, got out, and a month later pulled the same stunt again. He was sentenced to 4 years in prison. Another man — Mohammed Jaffar — served six months after stalking her home for months and finally making it onto the roof. Taylor actually wrote about these incidents in an essay for “Elle” back in 2019. She wrote, “You get enough stalkers trying to break into your house and you kind of start prepping for bad things…Every day I try to remind myself of the good in the world, the love I’ve witnessed, and the faith I have in humanity. We have to live bravely in order to truly feel alive, and that means not being ruled by our greatest fears.”
