Kathy Griffin Looks Down In The Dumps After Being ATTACKED By Her Neighbor With Homophobic, Racist Rant

Posted on Thu Sep 21st, 2017 1:39pm PDT       By X17 Staff

Kathy Griffin just can't keep herself out of the headlines!

The controversial comedian had just started to move past her scandalous photo shoot with a beheaded Donald Trump likeness and now she's back in the news. Saturday night Griffin and her live-in boyfriend Randy Bick called the police when the neighbor's grandkids were reportedly making raucous noise in their back yard around 8pm. Apparently Griffin thought the decibel level was too high but her neighbor Jeffrey Mezger, CEO of one of the nation's largest homebuilders KB Home, disagreed. And boy did he disagree ...

It's unclear exactly where this recording came from, but it's reportedly from a security camera -- at Kathy's house, we presume -- and in it you can hear Mezger's expletive rant against the comedian and her boyfriend. He dropped so many f-bombs we stopped counting and he called Griffin a "bald dyke" and a C-U-Next-Tuesday. He referenced Kathy's Trump controversy by saying the President "kind of put the heat on."

And now Mezger's paying the price -- he had his annual bonus cut by 25% as a slap on the wrist from the board of KB Home. The company stopped short of firing him, but they released a statement saying, "Mr. Mezger's recent behavior in his personal dealings with a neighbor is unacceptable and a negative reflection on KB Home."

In a statement provided to HuffPost, KB Home said Mezger apologized for "losing his temper over a supposed noise complaint involving his three young grandchildren in his swimming pool around 8 p.m. on Saturday, while they were being supervised by their mother and grandmother."
"He apologizes for the language he used," the statement said, "as it does not reflect who he is or what he believes."

He seemed to believe it when he was saying it! ...


Beyonce And Jay-Z To Headline Hurricane Benefit Concert In NYC

Posted on Thu Sep 21st, 2017 1:25pm PDT       By X17 Staff

She's making her return to the stage for a good cause!

Beyonce and Jay-Z will headline a hurricane benefit concert in NYC next month, and a bunch of other Roc Nation artists are expected to join in, US Weekly reports. It will be the "Lemonade" songstress' first performance since giving birth to twins Rumi and Sir back in June, and it will be held at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, on Tuesday, October 17.

Queen Bey has been actively involved with natural disaster relief efforts in recent weeks. She taped a video message for the Hand to Hand telethon, and she put boots on the ground in Houston after the historic flooding took place.

"During a time where it's impossible to watch the news without seeing violence or racism in this country, just when you think it couldn't possibly get worse, natural disasters take precious life, do massive damage and forever change lives, leaving behind contaminated water, flooded hospitals, schools and nursing homes. We need to come together in a collective effort to raise our voices, to help our communities, to lift our spirits and heal," she urged in her plea during the telethon, which raised $14 million for the victims.

They are one of the richest couple's in the world, so it wouldn't hurt if they threw a few million on top of whatever this concert banks!


Audrina Patridge Files For Divorce From Corey Bohan, Gets Restraining Order

Posted on Thu Sep 21st, 2017 1:00pm PDT       By X17 Staff

That was quick!

After only ten months of marriage, The Hills star Audrina Patridge has filed for divorce from husband Corey Bohan and gotten a restraining order against him, after an alleged domestic violence incident the BMX biker denies.

"His aggressive behavior usually escalates whenever I am paying attention to work obligations, rather than to him. When we are apart, he texts me obsessively, rattling my nerves and making it difficult for me to concentrate on my work commitments. His harassing behavior has recently become so extreme that I physically separated from him a few weeks ago. I am fearful of [Bohan]'s temper because he cannot control his swearing and personal attacks on me, even when in the presence of our young daughter. Furthermore, as set forth below, his aggressiveness last month became so extreme he became physically violent," her court documents state.

The MTV star and Bohan share 14-month-old daughter Kirra, and Patridge wants sole physical and legal custody to prevent Bohan taking her back to his native Australia.

"Audrina’s number one concern is for her daughter and she asks for privacy at this time," her rep told various outlets.

Patridge and Bohan had been dating on and off since 2008, got engaged in November 2015, and welcomed their little girl in 2016 before tying the knot in Hawaii. It's never been a fairytale romance, though, according to insiders.

"These problems have existed their entire relationship. They broke up and got back together, and she really thought things would be different when they got married, but she’s realized things had to change before it got even worse, and she had to get her and her daughter out of the situation," a source dished to People.

Should should never have broken up with Justin Bobby!

We literally can't!

Britney Spears and Mariah Carey had a chance meeting at a mutual pal's dinner party this week, and Brit Brit couldn't help but unleash her inner fangirl while bragging about the moment. "You never know who you're going to meet at dinner parties," she captioned a photo of the pair.

Our girl Mimi has a history of shading her fellow pop peers, but it seems the "Toxic" songstress is on her good side. We wonder what they chatted about? Las Vegas residencies? Their hot young boy toys? Parenting? They have a lot more in common than we initially thought!

Can you imagine if they collaborated on a track together?!

Zayn Malik Opens Up About His Ongoing Battle With Anxiety

Posted on Thu Sep 21st, 2017 10:30am PDT       By X17 Staff

A post shared by Zayn Malik (@zayn) on

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!
