Child Molestation Case Against Michael Jackson's Estate Gets Dismissed

Posted on Thu May 28th, 2015 9:05am PDT       By X17 Staff

A Los Angeles judge has ruled that the child molestation case brought about by choreographer Wade Robson and another alleged victim, James Safechuck, against Michael Jackson's estate should be dismissed after too much time had passed since the late singer's death.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff dismissed the case when he ruled that the two men, who filed in 2013, had waited too long after the singer's death in 2009 to make a legal claim. Legally, an alleged victim has one year to file.

Robson, who was a key witness in Jackson's acquittal in 2005, has since changed his story and said that Jackson first molested him when he was seven years old at the Neverland Ranch, as his sister slept in a separate bed. The choreographer, who has designed dances for Britney Spears and 'N Sync, alleges he was molested by the icon for eight years, beginning in 1990. Robson is now claiming that he came forward after a breakthrough in therapy, which he was going to following a nervous breakdown in 2011.

The Jackson estate has denied all of Robson and Safechuck's allegations of abuse.

Posted on Thu May 28th, 2015 8:11am PDT       By X17 Staff


Kendall Jenner does NOT want to talk about her rumored romance with Lewis Hamilton.

The supermodel kept mum about her possible romance with the Formula One race car driver when she headed into LAX on Wednesday.

Last weekend, the two spent a luxurious weekend together in Cannes and Monaco and multiple sources are saying that duo have quite the crush on each other, reports Us Weekly.

The gorgeous pair met last week at the star-studded amfAR 22nd Cinema Against AIDS Gala event last Thursday. Then on Saturday, the lanky lady went to see during the Monaco F1 Grand Prix in Monte Carlo. Not a bad life!

Maybe Kendall is on her way to visit ch other, multiple sources tell Us Weekly. Bruce Jenner’s daughter and Nicole Scherzinger’s ex-boyfriend?!

For the flight out of town, the leggy lady donned a tan jacket, and showed off her fine form in a black crop top and black leggings. She elongated her already long legs with a pair of pointed pumps.

Earlier in the day, the 19-year-old got her brunette locks touched up when she made a stop at B2V salon in Beverly Hills. Before that, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star and her BFF Hailey Baldwin got some organic grub at Kreation.

Oh the life of an LA lady!

Are Ben Affleck And Jennifer Garner Headed For Divorce?

Posted on Thu May 28th, 2015 7:11am PDT       By X17 Staff


Are Ben and Jen dunzo?! Say it ain't so!

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Aniston may be headed for divorce. Multiple outlets are reporting that the high-profile couple are separated and are on the brink of a $150 million divorce. Wow!

If it's going to cost them that much -- maybe the parents of three should just stay together? If they can't do it for the kids, at least do it for the money!

The National Inquirer is reporting that the duo are going to make an official announcement before their 10th wedding anniversary so that the media hubbub will die down before Ben begins promoting Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice.

Radar Online is reporting that super mom Jen has had enough of Ben's wild behavior and has finally reached a breaking point after years of problems.

An insider told the site, "Often, when Ben and Jen have a problem, they just agree to ride it out and be miserable together until they can get some time apart."

Another insider told the publication: "Jen has actually been preparing herself emotionally for this divorce for some time."

We don't think every break-up rumor is true, X17 gets pics of the couple together on the reg and it's been over a month since we've seen the hands-on parents together, so we have to wonder ...

Plus: while we think Ben's a great dad -- we've heard a lot of rumors to suggest he's not such a great husband. We think it's high time Jen kicked Ben to the curb for his wild ways.

Posted on Wed May 27th, 2015 2:00pm PDT       By X17 Staff


One mention of his main ladies, and Yeezy can't help but beam with pride!

Kanye West was up early to catch a flight to San Fran this morning, and when our videographer brought up wife Kim Kardashian and adorable daughter North, the rapper was unusually smiley and chatty. We've figured out the key to diffusing the hip hop bad boy's temper - compliment the women in his life!

Asked if he said special things to his beautiful wife to mark their anniversary, KW replied, "Yeah, I did." So what did the Louis Vuitton Don have to say when we told him that baby North West was the cutest baby we've ever seen in our life? "I agree," he said with a grin.

Us Weekly reported that the A-list couple were planning to renew their vows in Paris for their first anniversary, and that the "Black Skinhead" crooner had rented out the Eiffel Tower, but it seems like they got their facts wrong. X17online.com can report exclusively that the couple road-tripped to Arizona for their 1st anniversary. A far cry from Paris!

Family life has turned him into a complete softie, and we love it!

Kim Kardashian Channels Marilyn Monroe In Vogue Brasil

Posted on Wed May 27th, 2015 10:32am PDT       By X17 Staff


Kim Kardashian is back to blonde -- well at least for a short time, as she graces the cover of the latest Vogue Brasil. The superstar channeled Marilyn Monroe for the mag's sexy spread. Va-va-voom!

The photos were shot in Malibu by German photographer Ellen Von Uwerth and intended to showcase Kim as a "contemporary" version of the late film icon.

In the mag, the 34-year-old talks about her superstar status and how people constantly say that she has "no talent."

"Aren't I lucky? I don’t have to do anything and still can be successful," Kanye West's lady love jokes. "I dare someone else to try to do everything I do and then they can tell me if there is a talent behind it or not."

Whether you love her or hate her, we have to admit -- Kimmy K has made quite a talent and being untalented!

 

Amy Schumer Skewers Bill Cosby Rape Scandal With Hilarious Sketch

Posted on Wed May 27th, 2015 9:15am PDT       By X17 Staff



We love Amy Schumer -- and so should you!

The always provocative funny lady took a stab at the Bill Cosby rape scandal on last night's Inside Amy Schumer and it's pretty damn hilarious.

In the sketch, the blonde lady plays Bill Cosby's fictional defense attorney in the comic's trial in the Court of Public Opinion. Ha!

The scene starts with the prosecutor's closing arguments before Schumer takes the stage. How does Schumer plan on getting Cosby out of this image-destroying jam? Why by playing an episode of The Cosby Show, giving jurors pudding pops and presenting them with Cosby sweaters of course! The basic premise of the sketch is Cosby couldn't have possibly drugged and raped all these women because he's the beloved Dr. Huxtable -- and even if he did, why would we want to destroy our memories of The Cosby Show by letting his reputation be sullied?

From the sweater jokes to the wacky dancing and on to the dozens of rape allegations, Amy puts all things Bill Cosby on trial -- and succeeds at poking fun of the world's love of the now-tarnished comedian.

Inside Amy Schumer airs on Comedy Central on Tuesday nights at 10:30 PM.

 

Khloe Kardashian Receives Backlash For "Habibi" Instagram Photo

Posted on Wed May 27th, 2015 8:40am PDT       By X17 Staff


She's damned if she does, and damned if she doesn't!

Khloe Kardashian is currently on a work trip in Dubai, and the reality star did the right thing by attempting to adhere to the conservative style of the culture by donning a niqab and hijab, which are traditional garments worn by Muslim women.

"Habibi Love," she captioned the snapshot, which just showed her beautiful eyes peering out of the drapings.

Fans were quick to criticize the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star for being insensitive with her blasé attitude. Women getting killed and beaten up for wearing the niqab, but you keep pretending it’s a fashion accessory, the disrespect," one commenter fumed.

Other followers defended the brunette beauty though, and maintained she was just sticking the norm of the region. They also pointed out that the E! starlet's boyfriend French Montana is Muslim, so she would never intentionally be offensive to the religion.

Team Koko on this one!

No, she's respecting the culture and just got the name wrong.

Report: Kim Kardashian And Kanye West Are Exploring Surrogacy After Fertility Issues

Posted on Wed May 27th, 2015 7:40am PDT       By X17 Staff


Unless you've had your head under a rock, you know that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have been having problems getting pregnant again. After a year of being unsuccessful, the celeb couple is now trying other avenues than having sex "500 times a day" -- and the duo is now exploring surrogacy, reports Us Weekly.

The couple, who just celebrated their first wedding anniversary together, are trying in vitro fertilization.

"Kim has been undergoing IVF," an insider tells Us. The 34-year-old reality star and the rapper have a 23-month-old daughter but the delivery was dramatic and took a toll on Kim's body.

In a recent episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, the star underwent a procedure to "clear something out of [her] uterus." In an upcoming episode, Kim reveals that an implanted embryo did not take.

Last month, Kim did talk about the struggle on the Today show. "I would like to hold out a little bit longer, and still try," she told Lauer. "I still have hope, so I'm just going to keep on trying. Never say never. I mean, we haven't talked about adopting."

We hope the A-list couple has some luck. Nori is pretty much the cutest kid around town -- we'd love to see another Kimye collab!
