Good for him!

Zayn Malik has been open about his ongoing battle with anxiety, and the "Pillow Talk" crooner says that his honesty is actually helping him fight the mental health condition.

"Just being straight up. Just being honest about everything, explaining what it is that makes you feel uncomfortable, what it is that you’re cool with. And making sure that all of that is in order and everyone’s got a clear understanding of what that is," he told Us Weekly about how he manages day-to-day.

"I feel like it was only a positive impact on everything that happened after it and people now have a better perspective on where I was coming from at the time and just an understanding that it wasn’t coming from necessarily being ungrateful, shall we say, or not aware of the opportunities that were in front of me, it was just me struggling with being able to actually be there. I’m definitely glad I got that off my chest, as anybody is when you feel like you’re keeping something from someone you have to speak about it and clear up the air," he added.

He feels the most support from his fans and family, including supermodel girlfriend Gigi Hadid.

"My fans are always supportive of anything I did. They’re amazing people and they’re always behind me. But the crazy thing for me was, the thing people that I didn’t expect to speak to me about that spoke to me about it, random people, like older people that had read the book, and they were like ‘I really respect you speaking about that, it takes a lot of strength and a lot of confidence in yourself to be able to just be like 'this is what it is, this is how it was, this is how I’m feeling,' and that was really cool to get that reaction because I didn’t necessarily do it for that reason. I just did it because I felt like I needed to do it. So when you get a nice reaction in return it’s like a bonus, it’s a cool feeling," he gushed.

It's hard being in the spotlight!


Chrissy Teigen Hilariously Corrects Ivanka Trump's Tweet

Posted on Thu Sep 21st, 2017 9:55am PDT       By X17 Staff

The supermodel can't stop trolling the First Family!

Chrissy Teigen couldn't help but point out a grammatical error in Ivanka Trump's latest tweet, and it seems like she's really going out of her way to make the President's clan look like a bunch of idiots.

"Cuddling my little nephew Luke... the best part of an otherwise incredible day!" Ivanka captioned an Instagram photo of herself holding brother Eric's newborn son.

"'Otherwise' implies you did not like hangin with this baby. Overall, is the word," John Legend's wifey fired back.

The POTUS has already blocked the Sports Illustrated stunner on Twitter, and we have a feeling his daughter is about to do the same!

In other news, Stephen Colbert couldn't resist correcting the Commander-in-Chief's own recent tweet about the Emmys on his show last night.

"I was saddened to see how bad the ratings were on the Emmys last night - the worst ever.Smartest people of them all are the 'DEPLORABLES,'" Trump wrote on Tuesday.

Not true, says the late night host!

"This is not something to be sad about. I'm not even sad about it, and I was the host of the Emmys. But I do want to point out, that every single part of that tweet was factually incorrect. The Emmys weren't last night from when he tweeted it, they were Sunday. And it wasn't the worst rated Emmys, because according to the Nielson ratings, 11.4 million people watched it, slightly more than last year's lowest-ever audience of 11.3 million. That's right, we had the second-worst ratings of all time. In your face," he quipped.

You gotta have a thick skin to be in the White House!


Report: Janet Jackson "Felt Like A Prisoner" In Her Marriage To Wissam Al Mana

Posted on Thu Sep 21st, 2017 9:00am PDT       By X17 Staff

No wonder they split!

Janet Jackson made a lot of changes during her marriage to Wissam Al Mana, but in the end, she "felt like a prisoner," according to Us Weekly.

Her brother Randy claimed the billionaire businessman was verbally abusive, but it was also the singer's attempts to fit into his lifestyle that increasingly wore her down. "She felt hidden from family and friends. Her life was sheltered," a source dished to the mag.

Michael Jackson's little sis found love with her Middle Eastern beau after her breakup with longtime love Jermaine Dupri, and he was everything she was looking for during that period of her life.

"He swept in at just the right time. He bailed her out and whisked her away to the Middle East. Janet lived a very lavish life with him. His money could afford them a lot of privacy, which was what she craved. Janet was never very maternal before, but that changed with Wissam. He really wanted a baby and she was ready. She realized she found the right guy," the source added.

Al Mana wanted a "traditional wife that stuck to Muslim traditions," and the songstress realized she was never going to be that person.

“Janet felt like she couldn’t be herself anymore. Janet felt like her music was suffering and she resented Wissam. She couldn’t settle down and be what he wanted. She put her foot down and said no. Janet wanted to get her life back," the insider revealed.

At least she got her adorable baby boy Eissa out of the relationship!


Kanye Is All Smiles As He Extends An Olive Branch To Jay-Z Amid Feud

Posted on Thu Sep 21st, 2017 8:20am PDT       By X17 Staff

We haven't seen him grin in a long time!

Kanye grabbed sushi at Matsuhisa in Beverly Hills last night with pals, and he flashed a rare smile as she drove off after the meal. He must be in better mood now that he's close to settling his beef with pal Jay-Z. The two rappers have been feuding ever since Yeezy ranted about Hova and wife Beyonce on stage days before his breakdown, but they're close to putting it all behind them, according to various reports.

'Ye thinks the Jay should "cut him some slack" because he wasn't in his right mind when he made those comments, and Queen B's hubby is apparently open to an apology.

"You can't bring my kids and my wife into it. We've gotten past bigger issues but you brought my family into it - that's a problem with me, that's a real, real problem," he said on Rap Radar's Elliott Wilson and Brian 'B.Dot' Miller last month.

"We've never let this much space go between one of our disagreements and we've had many, it's part of who we are, that's what I liked about him, he's this honest person, he'll say things - and he's wrong a lot of times - and we'll confront it," he added.

The Louis Vuitton Don wouldn't have to mend so many fences if he didn't have so many outbursts!

EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS - Ben And Jen Reunite After He Takes Girlfriend Lindsay Shookus To The Emmys

Posted on Wed Sep 20th, 2017 1:00pm PDT       By X17 Staff

She is a bigger person than we are!

Jennifer Garner kept her cool and played nice with Ben Affleck as they reunited for their kids today, and it's gotta be pretty tough, seeing as how the actor and his mistress-turned-girlfriend Lindsay Shookus just made their public debut as a couple at the Emmys last weekend.

Who knows though! The mother-of-three might be secretly relieved that the Batman star is no longer her problem, seeing as how a new report claims he's back to boozing after his stint in rehab earlier this year. An In Touch spy allegedly saw him drinking alcohol at an Emmys after party, even though he tried his best to keep it under wraps.

"He ordered water at the bar but a server brought him over the alcoholic drink once he sat down at the table. He drank all of it," a source dished to the mag. Making matters worse? He was spotted carrying a large brown bag out of a liquor store just last night!

It certainly doesn't seem like he's been making the best choices this past year!


Blac Chyna Jets Out Of Town After Reaching A Custody Settlement With Rob Kardashian

Posted on Wed Sep 20th, 2017 11:45am PDT       By X17 Staff

She seems mighty pleased with herself.

Blac Chyna caught a flight out of LAX en route to Atlanta this morning, and she must feel it's OK to skip town now that she and Rob Kardashian have reached a custody settlement. The former stripper is getting $20K-a-month from Kimmy K's little bro, and 50/50 time with daughter Dream.

Just because she's settled one issue with Rob, doesn't mean she doesn't have another waiting in the wings for a paycheck! According to multiple outlets, she wants "millions" from her baby daddy over that whole revenge porn incident. She wants him to pay for leaking her nude pix and losing her weight loss endorsement deals, and she won't rest until he forks over the dough.

Despite it all, the sock designer is ultimately just glad to be hashing things out and getting away from BC.

"Rob is okay. Ultimately, he mostly cared about hashing out a custody agreement for Dream. He loves his baby girl and she is his focus. Rob and Chyna have other issues they need to figure out, but this is a good start. Rob knows it was a huge mistake to get involved with Chyna, but baby Dream is his world. She is the most special gift," a source dished to People.

"Rob’s family keeps being supportive. There is no more, ‘What did we tell you?’ attitude. They just want Rob to move on. They all love baby Dream. They want Rob and Chyna to get along, because it benefits Dream," the source added.

As long as Chyna is seeing green, things should go smoothly!


Serena Williams Pens Letter To Her Mom, Thanks Her For Teaching The "Power Of A Black Woman"

Posted on Wed Sep 20th, 2017 11:15am PDT       By X17 Staff

This is so touching.

Serena Williams must be feeling sentimental after giving birth to her daughter Alexis Olympia, because she penned a sweet note for her own mother to thank her for all she instilled in her.

"Dear Mom, you are one of the strongest women I know. I was looking at my daughter (OMG, yes, I have a daughter 😳) and she has my arms and legs! My exact same strong, muscular, powerful, sensational arms and body. I don't know how I would react if she has to go through what I've gone through since I was a 15 year old and even to this day," she began.

"I've been called man because I appeared outwardly strong. It has been said that that I use drugs (No, I have always had far too much integrity to behave dishonestly in order to gain an advantage). It has been said I don't belong in Women's sports -- that I belong in Men's -- because I look stronger than many other women do. (No, I just work hard and I was born with this badass body and proud of it). But mom, I'm not sure how you did not go off on every single reporter, person, announcer and quite frankly, hater, who was too ignorant to understand the power of a black woman," she continued.

"I am proud we were able to show them what some women look like. We don't all look the same. We are curvy, strong, muscular, tall, small, just to name a few, and all the same: we are women and proud! You are so classy, I only wish I could take your lead. I am trying, though, and God is not done with me yet. I have a LONG way to go, but thank you. Thank you for being the role model I needed to endure all the hardships that I now regard as a challenges--ones that I enjoy. I hope to teach my baby Alexis Olympia the same, and have the same fortitude you have had," she gushed.

Then she asked her parent for continued support.

"Promise me, Mom, that you will continue to help. I'm not sure if I am as meek and strong as you are yet. I hope to get there one day. I love you dearly. Your youngest of five, Serena," she concluded.

And now we're crying!


Woman At The Center Of Kevin Hart Extortion Video Denies Any Wrongdoing

Posted on Wed Sep 20th, 2017 10:30am PDT       By X17 Staff

Is it weird that we believe her?

Montia Sabbag, the woman caught on video having sex with Kevin Hart, says she's just as much a victim as the comedian, because she's not the person behind the extortion plot, her lawyer Lisa Bloom explained during a press conference this morning.

"I am not an extortionist. I had nothing to do with these recordings," Sabbag said. All the rest of the talking was done by Bloom, who claims her client is the victim of multiple felonies.

"It is a crime to secretly put cameras in a private place like a hotel room. It is another crime to secretly record people in a private place. It is yet another crime to distribute those images. Montia is the victim of multiple felonies under state and federal laws," she stated.

She then urged the A-list actor to get involved and help find the person who is really at fault.

"We invite Mr. Hart to join us in bringing the perpetrator to justice. To the criminal who did this, I say you belong in prison and we are going to find you," she continued.

The high powered attorney also made it clear that Sabbag wants nothing financial from the big screen star.

"Montia and I are not asking for a cent from Kevin Hart. This is not about money. We are not suing him. We are not making any claims against him. Kevin Hart appears to be the victim of this criminal, just as Montia is a victim of this criminal," she revealed.

Whoever is behind this wanted $15 million to keep quiet, according to In Touch.

What a mess!
