Hope they have Jell-O jigglers in the slammer!

Bill Cosby has been found guilty on all three counts of aggravated and indecent assault stemming from the drugging and rape of Andrea Constand in 2004.

The jury, comprised of seven men and five women, took a little over 14 hours to reach the verdict.

So what does this mean for the disgraced comedian? Well, each count comes with up to ten years in prison. If he gets the maximum sentence, it's likely the 80-year-old will spend the rest of his life locked up.

Sources tell Us Weekly Cosby will appeal the verdict.

He got what he deserves!


We Asked Kourtney If Khloe's Going To Forgive Tristan ...

Posted on Thu Apr 26th, 2018 8:10pm PDT       By X17 Staff

She must be secretly thrilled that she's not the one having relationship problems for once!

Kourtney Kardashian looked pretty in a peach pantsuit while running errands with son Mason yesterday, and the reality star stayed tight lipped as the paps peppered her with questions about whether Khloe plans on staying with cheating baby daddy Tristan Thompson.

The Revenge Body star is getting a break from being the headlines, though, thanks to brother-in-law Kanye West and his pro-Trump tweet storm!

Kim has been publicly supporting her husband on social media, but the rest of the K clan appear to have had it. In fact, both Kourtney and Khloe have unfollowed him, along with celebs like Drake and Rihanna.

'Ye makes Kourt's ex Scott Disick seem like a walk in the park!


Justin Bieber Dresses Down In A Tie Dye Hoodie For Church

Posted on Thu Apr 26th, 2018 8:08pm PDT       By X17 Staff

Gone are the days of formal wear at services!

Justin Bieber arrived for church last night in a tie dye hoodie and sweats, and we guess Hillsong has a pretty relaxed dress code. We're guessing JB's outfit still cost thousands of dollars, but it wouldn't hurt him to put in a little effort with his appearance.

The Biebs' rumored new lady love Baskin Champion was also reportedly in attendance with her sister Abby, but she must have snuck in unnoticed, because we didn't catch her, and we're good at that!

In other news, the "Sorry" crooner is allegedly losing hope that things with Selena Gomez will work out.

"He thinks about Selena all the time, but he is also realistic and knows he can’t continue to bother her if she doesn’t want to be with him. He feels like the more he keeps with the chase, or just lets her be nothing will really work unless she’s all in,” a source dished to Hollywood Life.

"He has to live his life, and if that includes her then even better, but he can’t wait for her forever. He is slowly coming to the realization that he might not be with her ever again,” the source added.

At least he has his faith to guide him through these turbulent times!


Avicii's Family Hints That The DJ Committed Suicide

Posted on Thu Apr 26th, 2018 8:07pm PDT       By X17 Staff

Avicii's family just released a statement regarding his tragic death at the age of 28 last week, and their use of wording makes it sound like the iconic DJ might have taken his own life.

Here's their statement:

    Our beloved Tim was a seeker, a fragile artistic soul searching for answers to existential questions.
    An over-achieving perfectionist who travelled and worked hard at a pace that led to extreme stress.
    When he stopped touring, he wanted to find a balance in life to be happy and be able to do what he loved most – music.
    He really struggled with thoughts about Meaning, Life, Happiness.
    He could not go on any longer.
    He wanted to find peace.
    Tim was not made for the business machine he found himself in; he was a sensitive guy who loved his fans but shunned the spotlight.
    Tim, you will forever be loved and sadly missed.
    The person you were and your music will keep your memory alive.

The hit maker struggled with anxiety and alcohol issues for years, and eventually stopped touring to get a handle on his problems and focus on his health.

“He was extremely talented. He was always very honest about how he hated being a celebrity. It was very difficult for him emotionally. He was never comfortable being in a social spotlight. Tim was Avicii, but Avicii was never Tim. He was sweet, sensitive and like a guy that didn’t want to be at the party, let alone the reason people were there," a source told People.

"Parties, the scene, leeches instead of friends … it was all too much for his sensitive soul. He wanted to watch movies all night, not party all night. It’s like he didn’t know who he was without his career, but his career was killing him — literally," the source added.

Such a sad ending for such a bright light.

Blac Chyna Slammed For Giving Daughter Dream Pink Hair Extensions

Posted on Thu Apr 26th, 2018 8:00pm PDT       By X17 Staff

What was she thinking?!

Blac Chyna thought it would be cute to put pink extensions in daughter Dream's hair and post a pic of it on Instagram, but we don't think she anticipated getting such major backlash for it!

Fans were outraged that the former stripper would force her little girl to rock such a grown-up hairstyle, and a lot them pointed out how painful extensions can be. "Are you serious?! A baby doesn't need a pink weave!" one user wrote. "Are you trying to turn her into a hoe like her mama," wrote another.

Let us be clear that we are NOT fans of the video vixen, but we think everyone needs to calm down a little bit. The hair pieces were clip-ins, meaning that they are basically painless and similar to a bow or other accessories.

There are bigger things going on in the world, people!


Kanye Mysteriously Lost 9 Million Followers After Pro-Trump Tweets

Posted on Thu Apr 26th, 2018 7:58pm PDT       By X17 Staff

Was 'Ye targeted by the little blue bird?

Eagle-eyed fans noticed that Kanye West lost a whopping 9 million followers after his pro-Trump tweet-a-thon yesterday, with his account dropping from 27 million to 18 million in a matter of hours, but the social media site restored it back to normal and claims an error must have caused the plummet.

"We can confirm that Kanye’s follower count is currently at approximately 27M followers. Any fluctuation that people might be seeing is an inconsistency and should be resolved soon," a Twitter spokesperson told Buzzfeed.

A lot of conspiracy theorists are claiming that Twitter has a liberal agenda, and was attempting to censor the rapper and decrease the reach of his praise for the POTUS.

Speaking of which, The Orange One is flattered by the support, and actually tweeted back to the Louis Vuitton Don!

"Thanks Kanye, very cool!," he wrote in response to the messages.

Kim and the rest of the K clan are reportedly disturbed by Yeezy's recent tweets and behavior, and fear that substance abuse could be to blame.

"Kim and her family have good reason to believe that Kanye is using drugs again because of his erratic behavior. But even if they were able to prove it, there is still nothing they can do. It’s real bad and he isn’t listening to anyone this time," a source dished to Radar.

Late night hosts had a field day with Kanye and Trump's bromance on their shows last night, and we've gotta admit, some of their jokes were pretty funny!

"I think Kanye is lobbying for a job as Trump's new communications director. He could just change his name to Kellyanne Kanye. The height of Trump praise has gotta be when he tweeted, 'You don't have to agree with Trump but the mob can't make me not love him. We are both dragon energy. He is my brother. I love everyone. I don't agree with everything anyone does. That's what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought.' Yes, we have the right to independent thought and I independently think that Kanye has lost his mind. You know what? Donald Trump is your brother, it is true, and I am your brother too. Brother to brother, I just want to say, put the phone down. You could have stopped at 10am this morning with, 'I'm nice at ping pong," Stephen Colbert quipped.

"The president was so moved by Kanye’s words, he baby-thumbed this very gracious response: 'Thank you Kanye, very cool.' Very cool, indeed. The coolest, really. So now Donald Trump has two black friends. I hope Ben Carson doesn't get jealous. And just like that, Kanye West became our new Secretary of State. America really is great again," Jimmy Kimmel said.

"This is crazy, today Kanye West tweeted that he and Trump are 'brothers' and are both 'dragon energy.' Trump responded saying, 'Very cool.' In a related story, Trump just made Kanye the new Secretary of Dragon Energy, which is amazing, I didn't even know that was a job. I saw that Kanye fired his manager this week and tweeted, 'I can't be managed.' Then Kim was like, stop tweeting and come in here and he was like, 'Yes, dear,'" Jimmy Fallon joked.

We can't decide is Kanye is totally "woke," or if he's going off the rails!


Kim Zolciak Issues An Apology After Saying "Racism Isn't Real" On RHOA Reunion

Posted on Thu Apr 26th, 2018 7:56pm PDT       By X17 Staff


Forget the peach, she's offering up a slice of humble pie!

Kim Zolciak just issued an apology statement for saying that "racism isn't real," on the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion, and the reality star swears that her comments were made to seem worse by some tricky editing.

"During the last RHOA reunion episode, I made a comment that confused and offended people. I sincerely apologize. Edited out of context, I understand why my remark angered people. Racism is a sad reality in the United States. It has been prevalent throughout our country’s history. Let me be very clear, I do NOT support, tolerate or put up with any form of racism, hate or other discrimination. My love for ALL people runs deep — I am open to all and always have been,” the statement began.

The blonde bombshell maintains that she made the remarks to emphasize how social media has change the dialogue around racism.

“I was heartbroken when I watched the last few minutes of the episode and saw how my words were taken out of context. My comment that seemingly ‘racism didn’t exist 10 years ago’ was made as part of a larger, emotional 45-minute conversation about how, sadly, social media has become a hub for hate. Immediately following my confusing comment, I also said that ‘it’s not as real as it is now,’ referring to the power of social media. But those remarks didn’t make the show," she added.

"I believe that social media has made a centuries-old issue more real. Before social media, the public simply observed the news. Now, the public actively participates and has an opportunity to take action — in real time. But this is a double edged sword. Now, when false accusations are made, they are amplified by online platforms regardless of their merit. This wasn’t the case 10 years ago when I started on RHOA,” she continued.

“I truly pray that the people wishing horrible things on others, and on me, channel that energy into something positive. Our world would be a much better place if you do. I am committed to making this world a better place to live. I will continue to learn from, and be open to, ALL people," she concluded.

In the wake of the scandal, the Bravo-lebrity has pressed pause on filming her spinoff Don't Be Tardy to deal with the bad press and backlash.

"Kim and her team have halted all production for Don’t Be Tardy while her lawyers have been working around the clock to investigate and deal with the final episode of the RHOA reunion. Kim has pulled the plug on filming. She’s very upset about the entire situation," a source dished to Us Weekly.

We wouldn't want to be her publicist dealing with this mess!


Kim Defends Kanye On Twitter Amid Reports The Rapper Is Having Another Mental Breakdown

Posted on Wed Apr 25th, 2018 1:15pm PDT       By X17 Staff

She's doing her best damage control right now!

Kim Kardashian took to Twitter today to slam the reports claiming her husband Kanye West is having another mental breakdown, and defended some of his more controversial tweets and opinions by chalking them up to personal expression.

'Ye has been blowing up social media with his love for Donald Trump, as well as his plans for his apparel company to take over the world, his Presidential aspirations in 2024, his views on free thinking, and much more, and it's raising eyebrows to say the least.

That's why his wife is stepping in!

"To the media trying to demonize my husband let me just say this... your commentary on Kanye being erratic & his tweets being disturbing is actually scary. So quick to label him as having mental health issues for just being himself when he has always been expressive is not fair. Yesterday it was announced that Kanye had parted ways with some business people and media outlets made this about Kanye’s mental health. Rather than just a simple business decision. So I’m glad he tweeted about the state of his company and all of the exciting things happening," she wrote.

"He’s a free thinker, is that not allowed in America? Because some of his ideas differ from yours you have to throw in the mental health card? That’s just not fair. He’s actually out of the sunken place when he’s being himself which is very expressive. Now when he spoke out about Trump... Most people (including myself) have very different feelings & opinions about this. But this is HIS opinion. I believe in people being able to have their own opinions,even if really different from mine. He never said he agrees with his politics," she continued.

"Kanye will never run in the race of popular opinion and we know that and that’s why I love him and respect him and in a few years when someone else says the same exact thing but they aren’t labeled the way he is and you will all praise them! Kanye is years ahead of his time. Mental Health is no joke and the media needs to stop spitting that out so casually. Bottom line," she concluded.

In case you've missed it, the Louis Vuitton Don is really making a splash with some of his comments.

"You don't have to agree with trump but the mob can't make me not love him. We are both dragon energy. He is my brother. I love everyone. I don't agree with everything anyone does. That's what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought. f your friend jumps off the bridge you don't have to do the same. Ye being Ye is a fight for you to be you. For people In my life the idea of Trump is pretty much a 50 50 split but I don't tell a Hillary supporter not to support Hillary. I love Hillary too," he wrote in one message.

Kimmy K might be standing by him publicly, but he revealed this morning that she freaked and contacted him when he started declaring his love for the POTUS.

"My wife just called me and she wanted me to make this clear to everyone. I don't agree with everything Trump does. I don't agree 100% with anyone but myself," he insisted.

"And also I'm all the way out the sunken place. And I'm not scared anymore. I'm not scared of the media. I'm not scared of the past and I'm optimistic about the future. This tweet is in love not fear," he added.

It sounds like the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star is simply praying that things calm down soon.

“Kanye is like a child who needs constant attention — and Kim already has three of those. So after a while, or when he’s being really needy, it takes somewhat of a toll on her. Kim has a lot of priorities, and the kids come first. Kanye loves his family immensely, but I think he always expects to be number one. And that just can’t be a reality for Kim, who is already balancing being a mom to three kids as well as her work," an insider dished to People.

"Kanye has a very overwhelming personality that usually gets worse when is he under stress. Working on his album has been a very stressful situation. He is a perfectionist and very passionate about creating the perfect album. It’s taken over his life. Without much sleep, he is still able to create music. But when he is sleep-deprived, it’s like he deals with a cognitive chaos. Kanye is very needy, and it’s draining for Kim. She works, is a mom and has many responsibilities," the source added.

"She needs a healthy partner. She doesn’t want him to keep tweeting. They have had these issues in the past. Kanye just doesn’t listen to anyone. He thinks he’s just misunderstood. It takes a lot for him to admit that he needs to chill out. And how do you argue with someone who think they are a creative genius? Kim can only wait and hope Kanye will snap out of this soon," the insider explained.

Yeezus apparently doesn't need anyone telling him what to do, not even the K clan!
