Melissa Rivers Files Multimillion Dollar Lawsuit Against Clinic And Doctors Who Performed Surgery On Her Mom Joan Rivers

Posted on Tue Jan 27th, 2015 8:50am PDT       By X17 Staff

Melissa Rivers filed a lawsuit against the Yorkville Endoscopy clinic and the doctors who operated on her mother Joan last year, claiming gross medical malpractice. It's not yet known exactly how much money Melissa is seeking in the settlement, but it's in the 8-figures.

"The level of medical mismanagement, incompetency, disrespect and outrageous behavior is shocking and frankly, almost incomprehensible," Melissa wrote in the lawsuit. “Not only did my mother deserve better, every patient deserves better."

The lawsuit claims that another doctor took photos of Rivers when she was unconscious. "Had doctors acted as physicians for Joan Rivers instead of groupies, Joan Rivers would have been doing Fashion Police last week," Melissa’s attorney, Jeffrey Bloom, told the New York Daily News.

As you may remember, last August doctors performed an unplanned throat biopsy on the late comedian, which caused her to stop breathing. Rivers was then hospitalized and placed in an induced coma for week before passing away on September 4.

Melissa said in a statement:
    "Filing this lawsuit was one of the most difficult decisions I’ve ever had to make. What ultimately guided me was my unwavering belief that no family should ever have to go through what my mother, Cooper and I have been through. The level of medical mismanagement, incompetency, disrespect and outrageous behavior is shocking and frankly, almost incomprehensible. Not only did my mother deserve better, every patient deserves better. It is my goal to make sure that this kind of horrific medical treatment never happens to anyone again."


Angelina Jolie Travels To Iraq Because She's Basically Mother Teresa

Posted on Tue Jan 27th, 2015 8:09am PDT       By X17 Staff


She's giving Mother Teresa a run for her (lack of) money! A-lister actress and UN enjoy Angelina Jolie continued her trail of happy tears when she visited refugees living in an abandoned school in Al Qosh, Iraq. We wonder if she adopted any of them?!

During her two-day trip, the Oscar winner visited the Iraqi refugees, who are members of the minority Christian community.

In addition, Angelina traveled to the Kurdistan Region of Iraq to offer support to 3.3 million displaced people.

During her stop she spoke about what has happened to the middle eastern country since she last visited in 2012. At a press conference at the Khanke Camp for Internally Displaced People (IDPs) in Dohuk Governorate, "Since I was last here in Iraq, another two million people have been forced from their homes, mostly in the last six months – this time Iraqi citizens."

"The spill-over from the Syria conflict has been devastating. The brutality of the conflict and speed and scale of the displacement has shocked the world. Help has come, but not nearly enough," lamented Brad Pitt's wife.

Angelina was appointed as Special Envoy of UN High Commissioner for Refugees in April 2012.



Hot Granny Kris Jenner Wears Totally See-
Through Pants At Paris Fashion Week

Posted on Tue Jan 27th, 2015 7:29am PDT       By X17 Staff

Kris Jenner may be a little bit desperate, but you can't deny that the 59-year-old reality TV star/momager looks amazing!

On Tuesday PMK attended the Chanel show in Paris to support daughter Kendall, and she wore a totally sheer pair of pants with an overcoat. Getting out of her car was a bit of a challenge, and as soon as she stood up, she immediately covered up her crotch with a handbag. Gotta keep it somewhat classy!

After the show Kris posted a pic with Karl Lagerfeld, and wrote, "Oh, no big deal 😎...great show @karllagerfeld @chanelofficial @kendalljenner !!! #Paris #beyondexcited #Karl." Karl obviously didn't smile, but we have to wonder how he really felt about Kris sitting front row. Sure, she's there to support Kendall, but when you consider the fact that Kris Jenner's outfit was more revealing than Kendall's, that's kind of embarrassing...

Kim Kardashian Supports Bruce Jenner "No Matter What," But Won't Comment On His "Journey"

Posted on Tue Jan 27th, 2015 6:55am PDT       By X17 Staff

Kim Kardashian sat down for a chat with Entertainment Tonight, and the reality TV starlet didn't get into specifics as to what is going on with stepdad Bruce Jenner, but she did give us some clues.

After growing his hair out, shaving down his Adam's apple, wearing pink nail polish and what looks like lip gloss, many media outlets have been speculating that Bruce is transitioning into a woman. While he hasn't yet commented on the matter, he was reportedly furious over a recent magazine cover that used a Photoshopped image of him wearing lipstick and a dress.

Kim says Bruce is the happiest she's ever seen him, and seeing as he's flashing us smiles these days and not mouthing off on photographers, it kinda does seem like Bruce has found peace ... But what's really going on? Kim's explanation was vague, but it does seem like he's going to address this at some point:
    "We support Bruce no matter what, on this one I think that Bruce should tell his story his way ... I think everyone goes through things in life, and I think that story and what Bruce is going through, I think he'll share whenever the time is right. I feel like that's his journey to talk about."

When asked about that photo that Khloe recently posed of all the girls with Bruce, Kim added, "That was not like a secret message like, 'We support Bruce.' Of course we support Bruce 100 percent. He's our dad so we support him no matter what, and I think when the time is right, he'll talk about whatever he wants to talk about." So there IS something going on then!

Kanye West Can't Get Enough Of Kim Kardashian

Posted on Mon Jan 26th, 2015 2:10pm PDT       By X17 Staff

Kanye West's hooked and he can't stop staring!

The too-tough superstar was caught unawares as he admired his wife Kim Kardashian at a recent photo shoot for French label Balmain. The 33-year-old reality star posted a plethora of behind-the-scene pics on her oh-so-popular Instagram account -- and in all of them it's pretty clear that Yeezy is crazy about his Kimmy K.

In one of the images of Kim getting zipped into a see-through crop top, Kim captions it, "He's happy about this look!"

In another snap, the curvaceous babe sits cross-legged as she chats with Balmain creative director Olivier Rousteing. In yet another pic, Kanye is full on checking out his baby mama.

Over the weekend, the Bound 2 rapper gave tribute to his wife during his Visionary Award acceptance speech at The BET Honors event on Saturday.

During his speech, the entertainer talked about interracial relationships, and addressed the idea that his own wife was a "golddigger." Kanye said, "I wanna say that my wife has dated broke black dudes. It got nothing to do with the money."

Kanye also a recounted a time when Kim's famous father, Robert Kardashian, who infamously defended OJ Simpson, reacted angrily after his Bentley was defaced with the words "n***a lover."

Kanye said that then Robert foretold Kim's future, telling her, "One day, you may have a black child…a beautiful, beautiful, beautiful black child…and it’s gonna be hard. You’re gonna see how hard it is."

Who knew Robert Kardashian was such a soothsayer?!


Emile Hirsch Reportedly Assaults Woman During Sundance Film Festival

Posted on Mon Jan 26th, 2015 1:39pm PDT       By X17 Staff

Emile Hirsch is currently under police investigation for an alleged assault on a woman during the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, reports Us Weekly.

The woman, who is executive at Paramount Pictures, is flaming that the Into The Wild star, assaulted her at 3:30 AM at TAO nightclub on Sunday.

"Last night, Emile Hirsch got into a fight with an executive at Paramount at TAO Sundance … and the executive was looking into pressing charges against Emile this morning," a source told the mag.

The Park City Police Department gave a statement to Us, "We are still investigating the case and cannot provide details at this time."

Page Six first reported the story, which said that the police were first called to the scene at the time of the alleged incident but was not arrested. A source told the New York Post's gossip page, "Something happened between the movie exec and Emile, and she said she had been assaulted and asked security to call the police … Emile didn’t leave the scene, and calmly waited for the police to arrive, and spoke with them until around 5 a.m., after which he went home with his friends. No arrests were made."

The actor, who is at the film fest to promote his new film Ten Thousand Saints, has a 14-month-old son.

Local authorities will submit an official report once the investigation is complete.


Kris Jenner Tries To Steal Kendall Jenner's Spotlight During Paris Fashion Week

Posted on Mon Jan 26th, 2015 12:35pm PDT       By X17 Staff

Where Kendall Jenner goes -- Mama Jenner will follow!

Over the weekend, Kris and Kendall hit Paris for Paris Fashion Week -- and we can tell by the size of her outfit, Kris definitely wants to steal her daughter's spotlight. Look at the 59-year-old -- minidress, fur, Pretty Woman-style, thigh-high boots! -- she looks like a high-class hooker! If that outfit's Balmain -- we can't imagine when Olivier Rousteing designed it, that he envisioned Mama J wearing it like that ...

Kendall is in the City of Lights to walk the runway in several fashion shows. And of course Kris is tagging along with her high-profile daughter -- that hoochie mama isn't going to miss riding on her daughter's coattails for a split second!

It seems that the two are having a busy couple of days together. On Monday, the 19-year-old donned leather skinnies and a white leather jacket to grab a bite at L' Avenue restaurant. Last night, Kendall and her mom took to the streets of Paris in vastly different styles. Kendall covered up when she wore her leather pants, which she topped off with a chic, fur-trimmed coat. On the other hand, the aging reality star wore a very skimpy outfit, which raised more than a few eyebrows.

Amazingly enough Kendall didn't seemed fazed by her mother's desperation. We guess she's used to it.

We wish the rest of the Kardashian klan would take some cues from Kendall -- minimalistic, natural and stylish.


Amal Clooney Parts Way With Hubby George After Two Weeks Together In LA

Posted on Mon Jan 26th, 2015 11:43am PDT       By X17 Staff

Amal Clooney said goodbye to her new husband George as she headed back to London to get back to work as a barrister at Doughty Street Chambers (doesn't that sound so fancy!).

The human rights attorney donned a blood red coat with buckles, accentuating her thin frame and her hair -- as always -- was impossibly shiny and perfectly curled. Alas, who cares! Because these brainy beauty has serious work to do and prancing through international airports in haute couture has nothing to do with it!

Amal enjoyed a rare two weeks along with her love George Clooney, after the pair jetted into town for the Golden Globes and then stayed, holed up in the actor's manse, hardly being seen out on the town at all, save the single time the pair were snapped running errands in Santa Monica, Amal in a $5000 Giambattista Valli dress.

Hey, when you've got it, flaunt it!
