Miley Cyrus' Homeless VMA Date Jesse Helt Turns Himself In To Police

Posted on Fri Aug 29th, 2014 8:59am PDT       By X17 Staff

Miley Cyrus may have thought she was raising awareness for homeless youth at the MTV Video Music Awards when she let her friend Jesse Helt take the stage after she won Video of the Year, but it seems like it had the opposite effect.

You see, Helt has had an outstanding arrest warrant since November 2011 for criminal trespass, and with his face all over the TV and web, he was forced head home (yes, he has one) and turn himself in to the police in Dallas, Oregon. Helt posted $2,500 bail, and according to Martin Silbernagel, director of Polk County Community Corrections, Helt is expected to appear before a judge in approximately two weeks.

Court records indicate that Helt previously plead guilty to charges of misdemeanor criminal mischief and criminal trespass after he broke into a man's apartment. Apparently Helt thought the man was selling bad marijuana. No, we're not even kidding. Helt was sentenced to 30 days in jail and probation, which he then violated, hence the arrest warrant.

Helt's mother Linda confirmed that Miley has offered to help pay for her son's legal fees, and Trevor Neilson, president of G2 Investment Group, who introduced Miley and Jesse via the homeless youth charity My Friend's Place, says the singer is still very much committed to the cause.

"Jesse Helt turned himself in tonight to Polk County authorities to address his outstanding legal issues," Neilson said in a statement to the AP. "Cyrus will be assisting him with this process, and they both are committed to working to help the other 1.6 million youth who experience homelessness in America each year."

We hope she pulls through!

Joan Rivers was rushed to the hospital Thursday in N.Y.C. after she stopped breathing during a throat surgery at a nearby clinic, and although she isn't out of the woods yet, daughter Melissa has spoken out to give an update on the Fashion Police host's current condition.

"I want to thank everyone for the overwhelming love and support for my mother. She is resting comfortably and is with our family. We ask that you continue to keep her in your thoughts and prayers," the statement read. The legendary comedienne is allegedly in a medically induced coma, Us Weekly reports. It's still unclear when doctors will decide to bring her back into a conscious state.

We wish her a speedy recovery!

Angelina Jolie Releases Statement On Violence In Syria After Wedding News Breaks

Posted on Fri Aug 29th, 2014 7:59am PDT       By X17 Staff

After the news broke on Thursday that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt married in France last weekend, the Oscar winner is using the spotlight to make a statement on a far more important topic -- the ongoing violence in the middle east, specifically Syria.

"Three million refugees is not just another statistic," Jolie said in a statement. "It is a searing indictment of our collective failure to end the war in Syria. International stability is steadily bleeding away in Syria. UN Security Council Resolutions are being ignored; war crimes are being committed on a daily basis; regional countries are staggering under the human burden; and Syrian refugees are dying in the Mediterranean sea, trying to reach Europe."

"We need to see a new attempt to resolve the conflict and greater efforts to support more than 13 million Syrians who are in desperate need," Jolie concluded. "The reputation and credibility of the international system is at stake with so many thousands of lives threatened in Syria."

Jolie has been an ambassador with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees for 13 years, and she last visited with Syrian refugees in a Lebanese camp in February 2014. In June the 39-year-old actress co-chaired the Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict in June, and over the years she's met with Syrian refugees in Turkey, Iraq and Lebanon as part of her role as special envoy for the UNHCR.


EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS - Kourtney Kardashian Goes Casual For Her Studio Run

Posted on Fri Aug 29th, 2014 7:30am PDT       By X17 Staff

She's all business!

A pregnant Kourtney Kardashian didn't bother beautifying herself for work as she showed up super casual to handle some last minute duties at a recording studio in Los Angeles yesterday.

The 35-year-old reality star, who's soon to be a mother of three, was most likely taking care of her Keeping Up With The Kardashians obligations during the day while the rest of her family went about their business.

There hasn't been any new developments with the drama between her and longtime boyfriend Scott Disick since she checked into the Montage hotel in Beverly Hills over a week ago.

Their relationship has always had its ups and downs but with another bundle of joy on the way, we hope all is well within their household!

Matthew Knowles Calls Beyonce-Jay Z Divorce Rumors A "Jedi Mind Trick"

Posted on Fri Aug 29th, 2014 7:00am PDT       By X17 Staff


Sounds like a lot is going on in their household!

In a stunning turn of events, Beyonce's father Matthew Knowles has come out to claim that the elevator incident with Solange, along with the divorce rumors surrounding his daughter and Jay-Z, are all a Jedi mind trick. Huh?

"I know, from experience, because we've done this, there's a tour going on," Bey's dad said in an interview with The Roula and Ryan Show on 104.1 in Houston on Thursday. "So you have to sometimes ignite that tour -- it's called a Jedi mind trick! The Jedi mind trick fools you a lot of time."

When it came to Solange and the infamous elevator fight, he simply repeated, "All I know is the Jedi mind trick," in regards to whether or not they knew they were being recorded. "Everybody's talking about it. Ticket sales went up. Solange's album sales went up 200 percent."

Things appeared pretty serene when Bey, Jay and baby Blue were at the 2014 MTV VMA Awards earlier this week. As for Queen Bey, she hasn't had time to indulge in her father's claims but rather spend her time focused on her little girl.

The 32-year-old entertainer opted for a poem entitled Bey The Light as opposed to an interview to go with her spread for Carine Roitfeld’s CR Fashion Book, expressing the fondness she has for her daughter.

“It’s my daughter, she’s my biggest muse,” she wrote. “There’s someone we all find out soon, more important than ourselves to lose." She also added a bit about how she wants people to perceive her talents.

"You call me a singer, but I’m called to transform, to suck up the grief, anxiety, and loss of those who hear me into my song’s form.”

Sounds like Blue has given her career an additional spark she never knew she had!


Kendall And Kylie Jenner Strut Their Stuff In NYC

Posted on Fri Aug 29th, 2014 6:30am PDT       By X17 Staff

They look ready to take on the town!

On Thursday, Kendall and Kylie Jenner donned their darkest attire while out and about in New York City and get this... they were without the rest of the fam!

The two young Kardashian clan members were in town to celebrate their joint DuJour magazine cover at Lavo in Midtown Manhattan, the latest accomplishment for the budding models.

Kendall has been on fire lately, having scored her first Teen Vogue cover after gigs with Marc Jacobs, Givenchy, and Balmain. The statuesque 18-year-old went in-depth on her strides in the fashion industry and what her family association means for it all.

"What a lot of people don’t know is that being in the industry I'm in with my family doesn't benefit me at all," she told DuJour. "It actually makes it harder for me to break in because I had to work a little bit harder for people to take me seriously and show them that I really want it."

Seems like her hard work is paying off. As for the dropping of her last name for more modeling gigs, looks like that's a tactic to make a name for herself!


Britney Spears Confirms Split With David Lucado

Posted on Thu Aug 28th, 2014 9:00pm PDT       By X17 Staff

We called it!

After we had previously reported , Britney Spears and David Lucado have called it quits and the pop star confirmed recent events with a simple tweet!

"Ahhhh the single life!" the 32-year-old singer posted to her Twitter account earlier today to further cement all speculation.

The two have been together since around March of last year, shortly after calling off her engagement to Jason Trawick. "I'm in love," Spears told Entertainment Tonight around that time. "I like the fact that he's very stubborn and he's stuck in his ways. He's just a simple man. I adore him."

There have been rumors of Lucado cheating on Brit which helped make her decision easier, although nothing has been brought to light besides the fact that she's enjoying being free with her family!


Kim Kardashian's Booty Is So Big It Needs Its Own Zip Code

Posted on Thu Aug 28th, 2014 12:10pm PDT       By X17 Staff

This never ceases to amaze us!

Kim Kardashian hit the gym on Wednesday, and rather than hitting the shower immediately after her workout, the reality TV star ran some errands in Calabasas, showcasing her giant booty in a pair of black spandex. She looked fantastic, but we still can't believe how she's built. I mean, this almost makes Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda" album cover look like amateur hour...

While Kim has been busy shooting interviews for Kourtney and Khloe Take The Hamptons and going to events for her line of sunless tanning creams, she has yet to take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, despite nominations from a number of celebs. We're waiting, Kimmy!
