Report: Zayn Malik Didn't Quit, He Was Fired After Ultimatum To Get Sober

Posted on Thu Mar 26th, 2015 12:10pm PDT       By X17 Staff

Is the truth starting to trickle out? It appears so!

Zayn Malik shocked fans yesterday when he announced he was quitting One Direction, but a new report claims it wasn't entirely his decision to leave the boy band. The singer's management allegedly issued him an ultimatum - get sober or quit!

"Zayn’s alcohol and drug use became a huge problem. He chose not to get clean and that is when they parted ways. They gave him every opportunity to clean up his act, but he just couldn’t do it," a source close to the situation dished to Radar.

The boy bander's hard partying ways and rumored substance abuse have been the subject of speculation multiple times before. A video surfaced of the 22-year-old smoking what appeared to be marijuana in May 2014, and then in November 2014 Today show host Matt Lauer boldly questioned if the British star was struggling with addiction after he was a no-show during a 1D appearance to launch their new album.

"Management ordered Zayn to take a break because there are concerns for his well-being. He is in bad shape, which is the real reason he went home to London. He’s been going down fast and an intervention was needed. It was decided that it was best for him to go and take care of him for right now,” another source previously told the website.

He has been looking gaunt and worn out in recent months, so let's hope he takes this time to get better!


We Found Lisa Turtle! And She's Looking Better Than She Has In Years!

Posted on Thu Mar 26th, 2015 11:38am PDT       By X17 Staff

After Lark Voorhies was noticeably missing from last month's Saved By The Bell reunion on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, everyone was wondering -- Where is Lisa Turtle? But yesterday, our photogs found the actress stopping by Jimmy Kimmel Live on her 41st birthday! And she's looking better and healthier than she has in years!

Yesterday, the former TV star strutted her stuff in a frilly white dress as she stopped by the funnyman's studio in Hollywood. We've seen Lark do some interviews in the past and her make up has been a mess -- but it looks like put herself together. We knew the Lisa Turtle inside of her couldn't be lost forever!

Last month, her publicist told E! News that she was too busy with work to attend the SBTB reunion on Jimmy Fallon. "Lark would have loved to be part of the Jimmy Fallon skit (as she is a big fan of the show), however due to an intense work schedule she was not available." However many others surmised that mental issues for the real reason behind her absence after some strange behavior in 2012. Lark's mother had publicly said she was concerned for her daughter since she'd been diagnosed with bipolar disorder.

In 2012, Lark sat down with Entertainment Tonight and gave a bizarre and nonsensical interview. We are glad to see the 41-year-old looking happier!

Kim Kardashian Goes Back To Brunette Ahead Of Trip To Armenia

Posted on Thu Mar 26th, 2015 10:45am PDT       By X17 Staff

Presto change-o!

Kim Kardashian gave us quite the shock when she stepped out to take daughter Nori to dance class this morning in L.A. with freshly dyed brunette tresses, and we hate to say it, but we're already missing platinum blonde Kimmy K! The reality star recently spoke about wanting to go back to her roots before taking a trip to her homeland, but we didn't expect it to happen overnight!

I don’t know, I kind of feel like when I go to Armenia I should have dark hair. I don’t know," she revealed to E! News when asked how long she planned on keeping her lighter locks. The news outlet confirmed with sources that the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star is embarking on that trip sometime this month, but it looks like it's going to be sooner rather than later!

Another shocker? She's finally dressing little North West in lighter colored clothing! It seems the brunette bombshell has a penchant for putting her toddler in black ensembles, but today she allowed Kanye's little princess to wear a white leotard. The E! starlet, however, stuck with her favorite hue in a black crop top and workout pants paired with her custom Yeezy boost sneakers. They are the hardest kicks to get your hands on, and we are dying for them! Maybe Yeezy could find it in his heart to send us a pair?

The West ladies sure know how to grab people's attention!


The Real Reason Kim K Is "Dead" To Brother Rob

Rob Kardashian may be depressed, but here's the REAL reason the reclusive star is upset - it's all about his sister Kim!

Miley Cyrus Had Five Teeth Pulled And Posted Them On Instagram Because She's Gross

Posted on Thu Mar 26th, 2015 10:30am PDT       By X17 Staff

We've said it before and we are going to say it again -- Miley Cyrus is gross!

On Wednesday the 22-year-old had oral surgery to get five teeth removed and true to form, Miley posted the evidence on Instagram. Yuck.

The songstress posted one image in which she looks dazed and confused while while wearing a red hoodie. In the other snap, she shared a photo of her five extracted teeth. BTW: healthy teeth aren't supposed to look like that. Those look like dirty pieces of chalk. We have no idea why anyone would want to show off decaying teeth but we have no idea with Miss Miley does most things ...

When it comes to Miley Cyrus there appears to be no such thing as TMI -- unless we are talking about her not talking about boyfriend Patrick Schwarzenegger's recent cheating scandal!

Amber Rose Lets It All Hang Out While Sunbathing Topless In Hawaii

Posted on Thu Mar 26th, 2015 9:30am PDT       By X17 Staff

Your move, Kimmy K!

Amber Rose has never been shy, but the former stripper took it to a whole new level when she posted this topless Instagram of herself sunbathing in Maui! "If only this beach was actually Topless #Maui," she captioned the racy snapshot. Her boobs are so big, that her attempt to cover them didn't really work, so it might as well have been a nude beach!

We just got a glimpse of what Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa used to see!

The single mother is undoubtedly going to get some backlash for these super sexy pics, but just the other day she shared some words of wisdom with her followers and explained how other people's opinions and criticisms don't faze her anymore. "As u grow and really get to know yourself, figure out what ur truly passionate about and actually start living ur life 2 the fullest... you'll stop giving a f**k about what ppl say. It's a whole new empowering level of life and I'm living it," she preached.

Keep doing you, girlfriend!


Khloe Kardashian Doesn't Want To Talk About Rob's Meltdown

Posted on Thu Mar 26th, 2015 8:28am PDT       By X17 Staff

While Khloe may have thought photogs would have wanted to complement her after her five-hour trip to the salon yesterday -- the media was more interested in knowing about her brother Rob's mental state than her blonde locks.

As Khloe exited the Beverly Hills salon on Wednesday, she kept mum about her brother's highly public struggle. And it seems like 30-year-old isn't the only Kardashian who doesn't want to deal with Rob's bleak reality ....

Apparently, Kris Jenner has put her foot down about not covering Rob's story line on Keeping Up with the Kardashians. The momager has allegedly told E! that she doesn't want her son to appear on the reality show at all this season, reports People magazine.

While some may think Kris is being a good mom, we just think that the dragon lady is protecting her own image. Rob's behavior makes her look bad -- so let's pretend Rob doesn't exist.

The lone man in the Kardashian klan's bizarre behavior has escalated recently. The Instagram drama is just another incident in a devolving existence. A source told the mag, "[Rob] has retreated more. He's sad, he's bitter, he's single. He is very depressed and has been [for a while,]"

We really do hope Rob gets some help -- and stays off Instagram!


Justin Bieber Is Shy Leaving The Studio With Kris Jenner's Boy Toy Corey Gamble

Posted on Thu Mar 26th, 2015 7:30am PDT       By X17 Staff

Or maybe he forgot to pick up his Proactiv and is having a really bad breakout?

Justin Bieber left the studio in L.A. yesterday with his co-manager/Kris Jenner's boy toy Corey Gamble, and the singer hid his pretty face behind his hat as he made his way to the car. What gives, Biebs! Maybe he's just feeling bashful about confiding in a total stranger during a hike in Runyon Canyon this week?

JB was roaming the trails when he came upon and man named Mike Maedke and his wife. The couple said hello and introduced themselves, and the next thing they know, the chart topper is engaging in deep conversation and telling them about life, fame, and missing his native Canada, TMZ reports. At one point the bratty pop star looked introspective as he stared down at the city scape and said, "It's so chaotic down there." We would have given anything to have a heart-to-heart with the Canadian crooner! The fun came to an end, though, when two crazy fan girls made a scene and disrupted his impromptu pow wow.

He's converting people into Beliebers everywhere he turns!


Jon Hamm Talks About Rehab For The First Time Since Undergoing Treatment For Alcohol Abuse

Posted on Thu Mar 26th, 2015 7:00am PDT       By X17 Staff

Don Draper decided to open up about his recent struggles, and we applaud him.

Jon Hamm secretly entered a 30-day rehab to address his alcohol abuse, it was reported yesterday, and now the actor is shedding some light on his recent battle with the bottle.

"Life throws a lot at you sometimes and you have to deal with it as much as you can," he said in an interview with Australian magazine TV Week.

When the publication asked him if it was difficult to play a heavy drinker on his show Mad Men, the A-lister drew some comparisons, but did not totally blame his behavior on his craft.

"I've said in varying ways that acting can be a difficult endeavor. Certainly not as difficult as the recent example I used of being a baby heart surgeon. But it does present its own challenges and so does life," he admitted.

He sounds like he's on the road to recovery!
