Rita Ora Denies There Was EVER A Feud With Rihanna – WHAT?!?

Finally, after all this time, Rita Ora is opening up about her feud with Rihanna! And she’s… denying the whole thing??

In the singer’s upcoming BBC interview with Louis Theroux, which will air on Tuesday night, she is set to discuss her legal battle with Jay-Z’s record label Roc Nation. As Perezcious readers may recall, Rita sued the company in 2015 while asking to be released from her contract early. She claimed she had been neglected by the label — who was also in business with RiRi — but Roc Nation clapped back with a $2.3 million counterclaim. They argued the pop star hadn’t released enough music per her deal, but the court battle was eventually settled.

Still, the rumors were very clear: Rita was reportedly fed up with Roc Nation prioritizing Rihanna over her. Some insiders even claimed the Fenty Beauty founder got first dibs on new songs and would purposely hold onto them for a long time so Rita couldn’t record them.

And all that was of course AFTER the two had already been beefing for years, with Rita allegedly even telling her pal Cara Delevingne she couldn’t be friends with the Umbrella singer.

Never one to shy away from the search for big truths, Louis had to ask Rita to spill the tea, and she really did! In the upcoming televised interview, according to Yahoo!, the host asks the Your Song vocalist why she wasn’t releasing music while at the label. She threw things back at Roc Nation, replying:

“I don’t know. I was recording for two or three years straight. There was a whole moment that was about to happen, I recorded a music video and they scrapped it. I felt really disappointed like I’d let them down.”

The 52-year-old broadcaster then addressed the Rihanna drama specifically:

“It’s been reported that all the music was going to Rihanna — she was obviously the most established artist — she was getting first refusal on all the music and she’d sit on songs that had been written. Either way, the result was you couldn’t get a look at it and she had a problem with you.”

Okay, we’re listening!!

While the 32-year-old kept things coy, she did completely deny there was ever any feud between her and the We Found Love performer. Wait, wut?? She declared:

“I can’t speak for other people but I think publicly they always put women against each other. I’ve been nothing but a fan and respectful of her and I always will be.”


Nothing shady was going on behind the scenes? On the one hand, this sounds like Rita is totally denying the rumored feud. But it also reads like maaaaaybe she’s pointing fingers at Rihanna. If she says she can’t speak for other people, but she has been respectful, maybe that’s a hint? Who knows, maybe we’re grasping at straws here, but there’s no way we’re going to believe there was never a feud after years of insiders spilling. Come on, really??

There’s definitely more to this story one way or the other! Hmm. What do YOU think? Let us know (below)!

Collin Gosselin Gets Real About Estranged Mom Kate’s ‘Agenda’ In Rare Interview

Collin Gosselin is ready to move past the past — and possibly start anew with his controversial mother.

The 18-year-old former reality star is one of the infamous six Gosselin sextuplets from Jon & Kate Plus 8. His life has had some challenging moments thus far, including a period several years ago when his mom, Kate Gosselin, put him in an institution to deal with alleged behavioral issues. After leaving treatment, Collin went to live with his father, Jon Gosselin, severing his formerly close connection with his mom completely. Now we’re finally getting an update on where the estranged family members stand.

Related: Kate Was Once Accused Of Zip-Tying Collin To Chair & Making Him Sleep In Closet?!

On Monday morning, the teenager spoke about his difficult family situation. Sitting down with ET for an extremely rare interview, Collin got real about what happened after he was institutionalized. He also sounded remarkably optimistic about where things may go from here.

Speaking about his pre-institutionalization experiences with his mom, Collin told the outlet:

“After being there, I didn’t have a relationship with her. Even before [being] there, I don’t think we had much of a relationship and I think that just kept tearing it even more down.”

Now, with hindsight, Collin considers his family’s reality TV work to be the root of many issues. Speaking about his time on Jon & Kate Plus 8 — which became Kate Plus 8 after Kate divorced Jon and moved on with the show — Collin said:

“I want to believe [the rift] was because of TV and what being in the public eye does to a family. I think it tore us apart. It gave us less time to actually be together as a family, more time to be in the public eye.”

Inneresting. We don’t often think of it this way, but reality TV can be more of a production atmosphere that replaces actual family ties.

Collin got reflective about his younger years, telling the outlet on Monday that he thought his life experiences were “worse than” what the average teenager goes through. He explained his theories as to why, too. And it all comes back to Kate…

According to the 18-year-old, his famous momma had “her own agenda” to push while all eight children were growing up:

“It was worse than what you would say the average teenage kid goes through with their parent. I came to the conclusion that everybody has their own agenda, you know? My mom had her own agenda, and I don’t know exactly what that was. But I was put in a tough spot and my agenda was to make it out on top of that tough spot.”


But through it all, Collin is optimistic. In fact, he told ET that it “would be ideal” for him to rekindle a relationship with Kate again at some point in the future:

“It’s unfortunate that we didn’t have a relationship. I think every son wants to have a relationship with their mom. But I’m doing very well.”

Acting in ways wise beyond his years, the teen concluded with some sage advice:

“In life we all go through hard things. We all get knocked down, we all experience really, really difficult things. But don’t sit around and mourn and cry about it. Address the situation you’re in and fix it and come out on top of it. Because resilience is a really important thing.”

Are U surprised by Collin’s optimistic stance on Gosselin life following the fam’s turbulent reality TV years? Or are you more shocked that he’s apparently willing to reconcile with Kate even after being institutionalized?

Catfish Cop Allegedly Targeted Underage Girl Online – Then Murdered Her Whole Family & Burned Down Her House!

According to a shocking new report, Riverside County Police Department officers were dispatched on Friday to do a welfare check on a young woman “who appeared distressed while getting into a Red Kia Soul with a man”. What followed turned out to be the most terrifying tale of internet catfishing we’ve ever heard.

Before police arrived on scene, the Riverside Fire Department received calls about a house fire only a few homes away from the original welfare check. When firefighters arrived at the residence, they saw the first floor was engulfed in flames. As they worked on extinguishing and controlling the blaze, what they found was something they never expected — a brutal murder scene. Responding officers discovered three adult bodies lying in the front entryway of the home. They pulled the bodies outside, and the homicide investigation began — beginning with the fire, which was suspected to be intentionally started.

The victims were identified as 69-year-old Mark Winek, his wife 65-year-old Sheri Winek (pictured with her husband Mark, above, center), and their 38-year-old daughter Brooke Winek (pictured above, left). In a horrifying twist, the distressed young woman from the welfare check call also lived in the home with the victims. This was all one big case.

The unnamed teen had left the home with former Virginia policeman Austin Lee Edwards (pictured above, right) in his car — and so he quickly became a person of interest to investigators, but he was nowhere to be found. RCPD released warrants for his arrest as well as a description of the vehicle. It wasn’t much longer until San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department had eyes on the suspect, but unfortunately the fight was far from over…

When officers approached him in Kelso, the former cop opened fire. In a brief shootout, a deputy took him down. Edwards was pronounced dead at the scene; luckily his teen hostage was unharmed during the altercation.

The young girl, who has now been placed into social services, spoke to investigators about what happened: she had developed a relationship with Edwards online. Apparently he had catfished her, using fake photos and other personal information to gain her trust. When he finally obtained her personal info, he drove all the way from Virginia to California to meet up with her. The 28-year-old parked his car in a neighbor’s driveway before making his way over to the teenager’s home — where he allegedly killed her grandmother, grandfather, and mother before abducting her from the home.

Officer Ryan Railsback told ABC 7 in a heartbreaking statement on Monday:

“We had a grandmother, grandfather and a mother of this teen murdered by this suspect who traveled from across the country for, most likely, the sexual exploitation of this teenager. What happened here in terms of the ‘catfishing’ as they call it … that common practice of, you know, online deception where you’re pretending to be someone else.”

Police chief Larry Gonzales reiterated the importance of social media safety in a public statement on Sunday:

“Our hearts go out to the Winek family and their loved ones during this time of tremendous grief, as this is a tragedy for all Riversiders. This is yet another horrific reminder of the predators existing online who prey on our children.  If you’ve already had a conversation with your kids on how to be safe online and on social media, have it again.  If not, start it now to better protect them.”

You never really know who you’re talking to behind the screen.

Disturbingly, Edwards was employed in the Washington County Sheriff’s Office in his home state until very recently. The idea of someone this twisted being allowed to be a cop… Chilling…

The investigation is still ongoing and there have been no other details released at the time of writing this. A family member has created a GoFundMe to raise money for the future care of Brooke’s two teenage daughters, if you’d like to donate you can find it HERE.

Our hearts are with the Winek family and their loved ones.

Tish Cyrus Moving On With Hunky Actor Dominic Purcell After Billy Ray Cyrus’ Sketchy Engagement Announcement

Two can play at that game… not the game of dating a much younger actress you met on your daughter’s TV show, but moving on generally.

As you likely have not been able to avoid by now, Billy Ray Cyrus has confirmed his engagement to Firerose, an Aussie singer 27 years younger than he is. Though they supposedly only got romantic after the Achy Breaky Heart singer’s divorce, the couple tell the story of their meet-cute — which happened over a decade ago on the set of Hannah Montana — as though it was destiny. Even though, you know, he was married at the time to star Miley Cyrus‘ mom! Remember her?

Well, Tish Cyrus certainly doesn’t need anyone’s pity. The 55-year-old is apparently getting her groove back post-split with a hot actor of her own. A age appropriate one to boot!

Related: Billy Ray Swears ‘There’s No Hard Feelings’ With His Family

The manager shared a pic on her Instagram Stories Monday morning in which she was cuddling poolside with Prison Break alum Dominic Purcell. (The hunky actor is 52, btw. And looks great!) She captioned the pic only with a heart emoji and a thanks to the photographer who captured the sweet moment, writing:

“Thanks for the cute photo @Vijatm”

So the fledgling couple are Instagram official we guess? Fans have been speculating about these two since way back in August when Tish commented, “Hi babe,” on one of his IG posts, and he responded, “Hi love.”

Yeah, feels very couple-y. That plus the pic? Seems to be little doubt now.

Tish certainly deserves it. We can’t imagine what it must be like for her to see her baby daddy and love of so many years moving on with a girl younger than their eldest daughter. Such a big ick factor. We’re glad she’s getting some comfort here… in some very big, strong arms…

And while it’s good news for Tish, this couple confirmation is also a breakup announcement of sorts. Dominic Purcell was off and on with 90210 star AnnaLynne McCord for many years. While they’d broken up before, last we heard they were going strong — as AnnaLynne was very publicly discussing their “explosive” sex life as recently as September 2021. We guess at some point between then and last Summer they became off-again… again?

Sad to learn. But we’re glad Dominic and Tish could find one another! Especially after the year she’s had!

What do YOU think of the new couple??

16-Year-Old Confessed To Pennsylvania Murder On Instagram – And SHOWED The Dead Body!

A Pennsylvania teen has been charged with murder after allegedly killing a girl — and then talking about it on Instagram.

On Friday, Bensalem Police Department received a 911 call from a woman claiming her daughter had received a startling message from 16-year-old Joshua Cooper. The concerned mother explained that in his video message, Joshua claimed to have just murdered someone, before flipping the camera to show “the legs and feet of someone covered in blood.” A weekend press release added: 

“He then asked for assistance with disposal of the body.”

Whoa… He was asking her daughter to become an accessory to murder? Good move calling the authorities.

Related: Shocking Delphi Murders Twist: More Than One Killer?!

Units were quickly dispatched to the Top of the Ridge trailer park, where the caller informed officers Joshua lived, and upon arrival, the teen fled from the back of the trailer. He was ultimately caught about a mile away near Newport Mews Drive and Groton Drive and placed under arrest.

First responders entering the boy’s trailer discovered the bloodied remains of a young woman on the bathroom floor, dead from what officers identified as a gunshot wound. As of now, the identity and age of the victim has not been released, with officers only referring to her as a “juvenile female.”

We have no idea yet what led to Joshua’s violent outburst, but it’s worth noting this could have turned out differently had the teen not had access to a gun. We know, we know, anything could be used as a deadly weapon — but guns sure do make it far too easy, don’t they?

Bensalem Police revealed in their release that they found “indications that substantial steps were taken to clean up the crime scene.” Obviously the young man knew he had made a mistake, which is what led him to try and dispose of the evidence by reaching out to his friend… We’re just glad she brought it to the attention of her mother!

Joshua is being charged as an adult for criminal homicide, possessing instruments of crime, and tampering with or fabricating physical evidence. He was quickly arraigned Friday night by District Justice Stacy Wertman, who denied him bail and sent him to the Edison Juvenile Detention Center. As of now, it is unclear whether or not Joshua has retained an attorney. See more (below): 

Police advise anyone with information to contact Detective Ryan Kolb at (215) 633-3746 or Detective Shawn Smith at (215) 633-3687.

Balenciaga Releases New Statement Amid BDSM Teddy Bear Scandal – And It Ain’t It!

Balenciaga has returned to social media to further address their controversial ad campaigns, but, um, their latest statement isn’t helping their case much.

As you all know by now, the high-fashion house is currently in the hot seat after the internet called them out for sexualizing children in the strange ads that saw young kids cuddling teddy bear purses wearing BDSM attire. Then, another displayed legal docs about a Supreme Court child pornography case, and several other photos included easter eggs concerning historical figures who have had an unusual connection to children and child porn.

When the scandal first made headlines last week, Balenciaga took to their socials to address the controversy — and to place blame on anyone but themselves! They simply stated (in part):

“We sincerely apologize for any offense our holiday campaign may have caused. Our plush bear bags should not have been featured with children in this campaign. We have immediately removed the campaign from all platforms.”

While they stayed silent the next several days, Balenciaga has since sued the production company North Six and set designer Nicholas De Jardins and his company over the child pornography law docs being included in the campaign. Now that the luxury brand has had plenty of time to mull over the drama, they have returned with a lengthy statement, once again apologizing for the insensitive imagery while also explaining what went wrong.

In a message posted to the luxury clothing company’s Instagram feed on Monday, they declared:

“We would like to address the controversies surrounding our recent ad campaigns. We strongly condemn child abuse; it was never our intent to include it in our narrative. The two separate ad campaigns in question reflect a series of grievous errors for which Balenciaga takes responsibility.”

The clothing brand went on to explain the two sets of photos that have caused the most outrage online, saying:

“The first campaign, the Gift Collection campaign, featured children with plush bear bags dressed in what some have labelled BDSM-inspired outfits.”

Once again, they’re trying to place blame on the viewers instead of taking full accountability! There was NO other way to interpret those teddy bears. SMH. The statement continued:

“Our plush bear bags and the Gift Collection should not have been featured with children. This was a wrong choice by Balenciaga, combined with our failure in assessing and validating images. The responsibility for this lies with Balenciaga alone.”

Well, that’s a step in the right direction. Finally… The post added:

“The second, separate campaign for Spring 2023, which was meant to replicate a business office environment, included a photo with a page in the background from a Supreme Court ruling ‘United States v. Williams’ 2008 which confirms as illegal and not protected by freedom of speech the promotion of child pornography. All the items included in this shooting were provided by third parties that confirmed in writing that these props were fake office documents. They turned out to be real legal papers most likely coming from the filming of a television drama. The inclusion of these unapproved documents was the result of reckless negligence for which Balenciaga has filed a complaint. We take full accountability for our lack of oversight and control of the documents in the background and we could have done things differently.”

No s**t, Sherlock!

Related: Bethenny Frankel Speaks Out On Balenciaga’s Ad Campaign!

As if responding to Kim Kardashian’s threat to cut ties with the brand if they don’t make necessary changes, the business then listed exactly how they plan to move forward from this catastrophe — though we have to admit their next steps are very vague. They shared:

“While internal and external investigations are ongoing, we are taking the following actions:

— We are closely revising our organization and collective ways of working. We are reinforcing the structures around our creative processes and validation steps.

— We want to ensure that new controls mark a pivot and will prevent this from happening again.

— We are laying the groundwork with organizations who specialize in child protection and aims at ending child abuse and exploitation.

We want to learn from our mistakes and identify ways we can contribute. Balenciaga reiterates its sincere apologies for the offense we have caused and extends its apologies to talents and partners.”

We better start seeing them take real action ASAP otherwise this is clearly them trying to save their reputation without much effort! It’s one thing to say you’re sorry and want to change, but it’s another thing to prove it. Just saying. You can see the full new statement (below).

Look, we guess it’s good they are apologizing again and taking *some* responsibility, but it’s astonishing to think they’re blaming this massive pattern of sexualizing children and promoting child pornography content on “errors.” An error is a typo, not several photographs for a MASSIVE clothing campaign getting green-lit, produced, and distributed without anyone raising a red flag. We mean, Balenciaga isn’t some small business! At least dozens of execs would have had to sign off on the promo! And yet NO ONE saw a problem until now?! Not to mention, this had to have been intentional on someone’s part, right?! How else does this theme of sexualizing children occur in two separate campaigns, as the biz so specifically pointed out?? It just doesn’t make sense.

Balenciaga is clearly doing damage control right now to keep their talent and partners happy, but do you think they can overcome this scandal?! And are these statements enough to make up for the gross campaigns? Sound OFF (below)!

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Tries To Redeem Himself At 7-Eleven Where He Used To Steal!

While DwayneThe RockJohnson may not be proud of his past wrongdoings, he sure is ready to right them now!

In a Sunday Instagram upload, the 50-year-old pro wrestler-turned-movie star confessed to stealing Snickers candy bars from a specific 7-Eleven in Hawaii. The big twist? He made this reveal all while standing in that exact store! He explained to fans in his video:

“When I was 14 years old, every day I used to stop here at this 7-Eleven and steal a king-sized Snickers bar because I couldn’t afford to buy one. That was my pre-workout food. I did that for almost a year every day. I had to come back and buy every Snickers bar on those shelves.”

Johnson then proceeded to do just that, loading up every last bar into a brown paper bag before telling the clerk: 

“I’m going to leave these here. If someone looks like they’re stealing Snickers, give them these then they won’t steal.”

Not to be totally cynical, paying for Snickers now to give away isn’t the same as paying the store back for all the chocolate bars he stole… But hey, we’re sure that 7-Eleven is just happy for the free publicity. An appearance by The Rock would cost a lot more than a few candy bars! LOLz!

The Jumanji star also shared his goodwill by paying for the items of everyone in the store, totaling a cool $298. He admitted:

“I have been waiting decades to do what I’m getting ready to do now.”

See the fun vid (below)!

He then added in an additional post:

“Stealing Snickers + 7-11 = exorcising old demons”

Looks to us like he’s pretty satisfied!

Mighty Ducks Alum Shaun Weiss Reveals He Sold Judd Apatow’s Laptop To Buy Drugs

Shaun Weiss is addressing one of the most shameful moments of his life.

As Perezcious readers will recall, the Mighty Ducks star battled homelessness and drug addiction for much of his 30s. He’s made some big changes the past few months, and we couldn’t be happier to see him bouncing back. But while it sounds like his life is getting better now, the former child star is still dealing with the aftermath of some of his unfortunate past actions.

Related: Shaun Weiss Lands First New Movie Role After Getting Sober!

Earlier this month, Weiss appeared on David Manheim‘s podcast Dopey. The episode, titled “From Disney Child Star to Homeless Junky Tweaker,” takes a deep dive into Weiss’ early career success and subsequent drug addiction. The 44-year-old actor doesn’t hold back in explaining what his life was like during his lowest lows. And in one particularly surprising revelation, he tells the story of once selling Judd Apatow‘s laptop for drug money.

Speaking to Manheim on episode 383 of the popular addiction recovery podcast, Weiss — who has been sober for nearly three years — revealed how he first came to know the filmmaker in 1995 while working on Heavyweights. The then-child star later appeared on the fan-favorite TV show Freaks and Geeks, too. And it sounds like all that time Apatow was a good friend — for his part.

While drinking and drug use were destroying Shaun’s career and life, Judd was working behind the scenes on trying to get help, as Weiss told Manheim:

“I went to rehab … Judd Apatow put me in a rehab place. He was giving me a chance.”

The former child star continued, revealing how Apatow tried over and over again to help:

“That was the other thing that was really heartbreaking, too. He was really being my mentor and teaching me how to write and giving me different jobs and assignments that really cultivated me as a writer. He got me a job writing jokes for the Oscars … he just gave me all these gigs, grooming me for better things.”

Unfortunately, Shaun’s personal demons proved to be too much. Apatow was being “incredibly gracious” with him, he realized later, but the the younger Weiss was unable to accept the assistance.

Related: Shaun Made A HUGE Transformation Months After His Last Meth Arrest

In one particularly awful moment, Shaun recalled lashing out at the Knocked Up director:

“It was basically alcohol that did this. We basically had a conversation one time and I was saying ridiculous things to him and I was raising my voice. And he said, ‘if you don’t stop now, how you’re acting, I’m not going to help you.’ He basically warned me, ‘stop now, don’t proceed any further,’ and I did not stop. I got even worse, [saying] ‘I don’t ever want to talk to you again,’ which was ridiculous.”


During that time, the now-54-year-old Apatow had also given Weiss his prized laptop. The computer was the very same one Apatow previously used to write his hit 2005 movie The 40-Year-Old Virgin starring Steve Carell. Hoping the laptop would help Weiss with his own writing, Apatow generously gifted it to the struggling star. Weiss recalled:

“It was a PowerBook, but like, decked the f**k out. It was probably like a $5,000 laptop at the time. One you can’t even really buy.”

Unfortunately, the gift was all for naught. As Weiss struggled in the throes of a severe meth addiction, he endured homelessness in a Los Angeles park. One day, seeking a high, he sold the expensive laptop for just $60.

Recalling that difficult moment to Manheim, the former child star said:

“That was hard, that loss. Now I was crossing the line … when you take your f**king laptop and pawn that s**t, you’re not a writer anymore.”


To his credit, Manheim suggested Weiss try to make amends with Apatow now. The ex-addict wondered whether that was even possible, first saying:

“I never tried to contact him at all since that moment. Do you think he knows that I’m sorry for what I did? I feel like he knows that I’m sorry and I feel like what good does it do me to … I feel like that’s a mess that I f**king made.”

Weiss eventually agreed, though. He concluded the story by explaining how it might be important to apologize to Apatow for the unfortunate situation, even now so many years after the fact:

“This is really good advice. That’s good advice because there may be a part of him that wonders in the back of his heart — the decency of this guy — ‘can’t he reach out and apologize to me?’ He might be waiting on that, you’re right.”

Wow. Definitely a very heavy topic. You can listen to Weiss’ full interview on the Dopey podcast HERE.

We hope this story does have a happy ending that includes a friendship coming back together. Thoughts, Perezcious readers?

Cardi B Struggling To Make Offset ‘Happy’ Again After Takeoff’s Tragic Passing

Weeks after Takeoff’s unexpected death, Cardi B is struggling to make her man happy.

As you surely know, the Migos rapper was shot and killed at a bowling alley in Houston, Texas at the beginning of this month after a game of dice turned violent. The artist was only 28 years old and left many with broken hearts, including his cousin and group mate, Offset. Born Kiari Kendrell Cephus, the Walk It Talk It artist opened up earlier this month about the tragedy, writing on Instagram at the time:

“My heart is shattered and I have so many things to say, but I can’t find the words. I’ve been going to sleep and waking up hoping that all of this is a dream, but it’s reality, and reality feels like a nightmare.”

Now, his wife is offering a bit more insight into how he’s been holding up.

While chatting with The Neighborhood Talk on Sunday, the Bodak Yellow performer revealed:

“We’re living our life normally, but deep down inside our hearts have been so heavy. And I feel like if I talk about — the internet’s so desensitized — how we really feel, what motherf**kers really been going through, y’all would start saying, ‘Oh sympathy, oh sympathy,’ and we don’t want no sympathy. We ain’t no charity case.”

We can only imagine how difficult it’s been for both of them, especially Offset, who lost both a family member AND collaborator. The 30-year-old continued:

“But no lie… I have been feeling so hopeless trying to make my husband happy, trying to make him crack a smile. F**kin’ seeing him randomly cry — seeing him try to distract his mind, completely f**king — schedule been changing, trying to keep up with work after everything that he’s been going through for these past couple of weeks… We not in the mood to be f**king playing around with y’all. Deadass.”

Ugh, that’s so sad! It’s NEVER easy to see someone you care about hurt in such a way, but we’re just glad Cardi is continuing to be there as much as she can during these difficult times. She firmly added:

“Stop trying to make points, stop trying to make what we could do next, what should have been done, trying to be funny to get clout. It has been a couple of weeks and I feel like a lot of people are starting to feel a little bit comfortable with trying to be funny, trying to say slick s**t.”

Listen to the full clip (below):

Let’s just all agree to let the couple mourn in peace… Time truly is the best healer and that’s exactly what they need! What are your thoughts, Perezcious readers? Let us know in the comments down below. Rest in peace, Takeoff.
