Report: Kourtney Kardashian "Cut Off" Ex Younes Bendjima After Their Split

Posted on Thu Aug 16th, 2018 10:50am PDT       By X17 Staff

No second chances here.

Kourtney Kardashian has iced out ex-boyfriend Younes Bendjima after their breakup, People reports.

"Kourtney is doing great. She isn’t seeing Younes. She is happy being single for now. After all the drama with Scott over the years, she wasn’t going put up with any drama from Younes. She cut him off. She is focused on her kids and herself," a source dished to the mag.

There are a lot of rumors swirling around about a possible reconciliation with Scott Disick, and it sounds like the hard partying father-of-three wouldn't be opposed to it, even though he's in a committed relationship with Sofia Richie.

"[Scott would] get back together with Kourtney in a heartbeat. Sofia makes him happy but they are also very on and off. It wouldn’t be surprising if Scott tried to pursue things again with Kourtney down the line," the source added.

Younes really blew it! There goes your free ride and yacht vacations, dude!


Ben Affleck Celebrates His 46th Birthday With The Kids

His lady love didn't score an invite!

Ben Affleck celebrated his 46th birthday with his three children at Barton G restaurant in Hollywood last night, and the actor looked thrilled to be spending some quality time with his kiddos. That said, we bet he wished girlfriend Lindsay Shookus could join, but we know that Jen Garner has strict rules against her playing stepmom to their kids.

Speaking of his romance, apparently the Batman actor is fully in love with the SNL producer, and their relationship is only growing by the day.

"Lindsay is the girl next door. She's completely unpretentious. She is fiercely loyal to her friends. She's a rock to them and her family. She's the friend that is there during good and hard times and she's the first person to show up next to your side. He thinks she is very witty and charming and loves her company," a source dished to E! News.

"Lindsay is crazy in love. She would marry Ben in a heartbeat," the source added.

For now, though, the Oscar winner is focusing on his family and his sobriety. His ex-wife recently requested that he recommit to a recovery program if he wanted to see his two daughters and his son, so he's been dropping by a treatment facility almost daily since then.

We bet he's happy to leave last year behind him. That was a hard one!

There's no shame in her copycat game!

Blac Chyna made an appearance at Project Club in LA last night, and the former stripper totally knocked off Kylie Jenner's blonde bob hairstyle. If we were the LipKit queen we'd be weirded out that this chick just rips off everything we do! Anyways, moving on...

The video vixen and ex Rob Kardashian have been suspiciously silent in recent months, after some epic drama went down on social media, but it sounds like they're doing their best to co-parent daughter Dream.

"Chyna and Rob are fine right now. There's no major drama between them; it's all civil and they're getting along for Dream," a source dished to E! News, noting that they share custody. "They are so particular about each getting their time that it's down to the hour," the source added.

She couldn't resist throwing in a small dig, though, when photographers asked her who Dream looked more like. Watch!

A legend is gone.

Aretha Franklin passed away at age 76 this morning at her home in Detroit, after a battle with pancreatic cancer.

The soul singer's health had been going down hill for months, and she had dropped down to just 86 pounds. She was surrounded by family, who just released a statement.

"In one of the darkest moments of our lives, we are not able to find the appropriate words to express the pain in our heart. We have lost the matriarch and rock of our family," they said.

She performed infrequently in recent years as she battled her cancer, but her last appearance was at Elton John's amFar event last November.

The 18-time Grammy winner is survived by her four sons.

RIP to the Queen!

Kim K Looks Exactly Like Megan Fox With Blue Colored Contacts

I thought about killing you

A post shared by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on

She looks like a robot to us!

Kim Kardashian shared this selfie today, and fans couldn't believe how much she looked like Megan Fox with these blue colored contacts. "I thought about killing you," she captioned the snapshot, in reference to the title of one of Kanye's new songs.

Is it really a good idea for Kimmy K and 'Ye to be glamorizing this stuff, in the wake of all these school shootings and teen suicides? We get that the rapper is trying to bring attention to mental illness and his own bipolar diagnosis, but perhaps these things aren't meant to simply get likes on social media?

"The most beautiful thoughts are always besides the darkest. Today I seriously thought about killing you I contemplated, premeditated murder, And I think about killing myself, And I love myself way more than I love you, so, Today I thought about killing you, premeditated murder," one of the verses in his tune goes.

Her posts are getting so ridiculous lately, even fellow celebrities can't help but poke fun at her! Actor Colton Haynes did his best version of her recent Yeezy promo post, and it's classic!

Like butter. #Butter350's #yeezy

Matt Lauer Will Pay Ex Annette Roque $20M In Divorce

Posted on Wed Aug 15th, 2018 11:40am PDT       By X17 Staff

We would have expected this to be more, actually!

Matt Lauer has agreed to pay his soon-to-be ex-wife Annette Roque $20 million in their divorce settlement, Page Six reports.

The couple split after the TV anchor was sacked from the Today show for sexual harassment and workplace infidelities, and he's been keeping a low profile since. Although contentious at first, the former spouses are finally in a good place and amicably co-parenting their three children.

"Things really have settled down. Matt and Annette are getting on and they’re both spending time with their kids. They hope to settle the divorce very soon," a source dished to the outlet.

Their split is a little easier thanks to a "postnup" they signed back in 2006, when the model was ready to leave the newsman over his rumored affairs. She ultimately dropped her divorce filing and stayed with him, until he was exposed during the #MeToo movement.

"Matt agreed to pay Annette a lump sum of millions back in 2006 as an incentive to stay with him to help him maintain his squeaky clean image as ‘America’s Dad.’ She also got an allowance every year, plus it was agreed that she would get a share of the value of all their homes if they did split," the source added.

Lauer just sold his Upper East Side apartment for $7.35 million, and they also own a $36.5 million Hamptons home together.

"Matt’s bending over backwards to give Annette everything she wants because he feels so guilty. But he would love the Hamptons home. Matt still maintains the relationships he had in the workplace were consensual. He does feel like the poster boy of the #MeToo movement when he sees other high powered men hanging on to their jobs despite allegations," the insider revealed.

They share custody of kids Jack, 17, Romy, 14, and Thijs, 11.

Cheating is expensive, fellas!


Nicki Minaj Gets Into A Nasty Twitter Feud With Ex Safaree, Says She Wasted Money On Hookers And Hair Plugs For Him!

Posted on Wed Aug 15th, 2018 11:15am PDT       By X17 Staff

Talk about bad blood!

Nicki Minaj and her ex-boyfriend Safaree Samuels are engaged in quite the epic Twitter fight, and the accusations they're hurling at each other sound downright insane.

It all started when the rapper gave an interview to Hot 97 and discussed her former beau's attempts to take credit for her music.

"How many times have I said I never wrote ur raps? Nobody even talks about that anymore. Unless I really cared still I could not let the mention of someone's name get me that riled up. That looks like some1 who either stlll cares or just holding on to a lot of hate towards someone," he wrote on his page after catching wind of her comments.

"Remember the night you cut me and i almost died the police and ambulance had to take me out the crib on a stretcher and I had to lie and tell them I was trying to kill myself so they wouldn't take you to jail. When things like that start happening more Than once it's time to dip," Samuels continued.

That's when Nicki implied that he used her money to hire hookers!

"U stole my card & told me you thought it was an account with "free money" that I didn't know about. God will strike you down & more for lying. Ha! Stop saying u packed & left ! On Jesus u came to my house CRYING BEGGING to go w|me to Europe to the EMA's. I said NO DUMMY," she fired back.

"We know each other inside out. Everything there was for us. I didn't use your card for prostitutes. We both didn't trust each other. You did shit I did shit. You said you were messing with meek a few years b4 y'all got together and I'm not mad at that," he insisted.

The unexpected casualty of this back-and-forth? Tyga! The "Pink Friday" songstress outed him for getting hair transplants while dissing her ex.

"I should've never paid for that gyatDamn hairline!!!! It fell back out cuz God don't like ugly!!!! You used me but God had other plans!!!!! Tyga shit ain’t fall back out!!!! Y’all went to the same doctor!!! Yours fell out cuz GOD DONT LIKE UGLY!!!!!!" she sniped.

Amid all this, NM dropped her new music video. Watch it below!


Report: Demi Lovato Chose "Aggressive" Rehab After Overdose

Posted on Wed Aug 15th, 2018 10:10am PDT       By X17 Staff

She means business.

Demi Lovato opted to go to an "aggressive" and "constructive" rehab following her overdose, rather than kicking back at a cush facility that caters to celebrities, Us Weekly reports.

"This is not her first rodeo. She doesn’t want to feel like things are being handed to her. For Demi, this is a strength test,” a source dished to the mag.

"The rehab she is in is much more drill sergeant-esque. It’s not nurturing. At places like Promises, you live on the beach and go horseback riding. That’s not what Demi needs to put her in check," the source added.

In order focus, she hasn't been in communication with anyone, but ex Wilmer Valderrama has been keeping up with her progress by checking in with her loved ones.

"Wilmer has been in touch with the family and has been checking in on Demi's status. The family is trying to make sure they eliminate all distractions and want her to be focusing on her health right now," another insider told E! News.

Everybody loves a comeback story, and we hope this is one!
