Designer Stefano Gabbana Calls Selena Gomez ‘So Ugly’ — Fans React

Selena Gomez’s fans came to her defense after designer Stefano Gabbana made an offensive remark about her appearance.

The Dolce & Gabbana fashion house cofounder, 55, went after Gomez, 25, via social media on Monday, June 11, after the Instagram account @TheCatWalkItalia posted a collage of the “Back to You” songstress wearing red. Gabbana criticized Gomez’ looks, writing in the comments, “É proprio brutta!!!,” which translates from Italian to English as, “She’s so ugly!!!”

Celebs Fight Back on Social Media

Although Gomez has yet to respond to Gabbana’s diss, 13 Reasons Why actor Tommy Dorfman stood up for the show’s executive producer. “@stefanobabbana you’re tired and over. your homophobic, misogynistic, body-shaming existence will not thrive in 2018,” wrote Dorfman, who plays Ryan Shaver in the Netflix drama. “it is no longer tolerable or chic. please take many seats.”

The former Disney star’s loyal following also slammed Gabbana. “Shame on you for online bullying. Doesn’t matter if 1 million people see it or 1 person, it’s bullying. It’s wrong,” one Gomez devotee replied. Added another: “We love this beautiful queen.”

Celebrity Feuds: The Biggest Ever!

This is not the first time Gabbana has gone after a celebrity on The Catwalk Italia page. On Friday, June 8, the designer slammed Kate MossSaint Laurent LBD, simply writing, “No.”

Gabanna and his business parter, Domenico Dolce, who are both openly gay, have also made controversial statements about LGBTQ families. “We oppose gay adoptions,” Dolce, 59, told Panorama magazine in March 2015. “The only family is the traditional one … No chemical offsprings and rented uterus; Life has a natural flow, there are thins that should not be changed.”

Celebrities’ Biggest Social Media Fails

Queer Eye star Antoni Porowski recently disassociated from the brand after his social media followers updated him on the situation. The chef, who once supported the line with costar Tan France, wrote in via an Instagram statement in May that he has since distanced himself from it.

“With public collaborations come social responsibility,” he noted at the time. “Thank you for bringing my attention that larger conversations and rigorous vetting need to take place before aligning myself with certain brands.”

Actress Calls Out Quentin Tarantino for Casting Emile Hirsch After Assault Case

Speaking out. Actress Jameela Jamil didn’t shy away from publicly bashing Quentin Tarantino following news that he cast Emile Hirsch in a new project just two years after Hirsch pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault on a female movie executive.

Celebs Fight Back on Social Media

The 32-year-old Good Place actress took to Twitter on Friday, June 8, to share her feelings in multiple heated posts.

“Cool. Emile Hirsch strangled my tiny female best friend until she blacked out at a party in front of dozens of witnesses at Sundance Film Festival (and was convicted) but Tarantino just cast him in a movie,” Jamil tweeted alongside a casting announcement for the upcoming film, titled Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

“INTENSE case of rich white male privelege eh? Cool. Cool. Cool,” she continued the lengthy tweet followed by a middle finger emoji.

Shortly after her first tweet, she added: “Left her with three years of PTSD and never paid for her treatment, and still hasn’t apologized to her. Not today Satan, not today…”

Jamil later called out Hirsch for not apologizing, along with the rest of those involved in Tarantino’s upcoming film based on the Manson Family murders.

“Emile Hirsch has not apologized for this heinous crime,” she wrote. “But is re-joining Hollywood’s elite. Slow clap to everyone involved in this movie. So many other actors who haven’t attacked women to choose from…”

As previously reported, Hirsch was accused of putting Daniele Bernfeld, an executive at Insurge Pictures, a subsidiary of Paramount Pictures, into a chokehold outside of Tao nightclub in Park City, Utah, in January 2015. Bernfield recalled the incident as “insanely painful and absolutely terrifying” in documents obtained by the Associated Press at the time.

The Into the Wild actor pleaded guilty to the charges in August that same year and was sentenced to 15 days in jail. The AP reported that the Hirsch, 33, entered into a plea deal with prosecutors at the time to avoid a maximum stint of five years in jail.

Beyond his 15 days in jail, his punishment included $ 4,750 in fines and 50 hours of community service.

Roseanne Barr Made ‘Demeaning’ Calls to Staff of Her Talk Show

Roseanne Barr was a living nightmare for the cast and crew on the set of her short-lived talk show, The Roseanne Show, a source reveals exclusively in the new issue of Us Weekly.

Roseanne Barr’s Most Controversial Moments

Back in 1997, Michael and Roger King of King World Productions were looking to expand their TV empire. They set their sights on Barr, now 65, who had just wrapped up the series finale of Roseanne’s original run. The Kings had to overlook a few red flags along the way, though.

“As part of her contract, Roseanne demanded that the King brothers buy her a house in Lake Arrowhead, on top of her $ 5 million yearly salary,” the source, who worked behind the scenes on The Roseanne Show, tells Us. “The brothers thought this was outrageous, but wanted to keep Roseanne happy, so they agreed.”

Stars Who Were Fired From Jobs

The syndicated show premiered in September 1998. But the jubilant mood on set didn’t last once negative reviews began coming in. Barr blamed everybody but herself for the program’s missteps, the source recalls.

“It wouldn’t be unusual for Roseanne to call one department, swearing about the crew and lack of support from the King brothers, and demeaning the work that was trying to be done to give her positive press,” the insider tells Us, noting that the host would often cancel interviews last-minute and refuse to be photographed by major news outlets.

TV Shows Gone Too Soon

The alleged verbal abuse only got worse. Barr began “leaving minutes-long messages at all hours of the night,” the source says. “She would tell us the infomercial she was watching was better than her show and that we were ruining her life.”

Eventually, The Roseanne Show came to an end. It aired its final episode in June 2000 to little fanfare.

‘Roseanne’ Cast Reacts to Reboot Cancellation

Nearly 20 years later, the comedian found herself in hot water again when she called former Barack Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett the child of “muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes” in a since-deleted tweet. She apologized after facing backlash, but it was too late. ABC canceled the reboot of Roseanne on May 29 despite rave reviews about the first season. Barr later claimed that she had been “ambien tweeting.”

Janet Jackson Calls Police for Welfare Check on Her 17-Month-Old Son

Janet Jackson called police on Saturday, June 2, to check on the welfare of her 17-month-old-old son, Eissa, who was with the singer’s estranged husband, Wissam Al Mana.

Celebrity Splits of 2018

A watch commander with the Malibu County Sheriff’s office confirms to Us Weekly that the Grammy winner made the call before 10 p.m. and authorities went to the Nobu Hotel to check on the boy. “Deputies were there and the child was OK so we left,” the commander told Us.

Jackson’s brother Randy Jackson told Entertainment Tonight that the “Miss You Much” singer called 911 after being contacted by a nanny who was helping Al Mana look after his son. Randy claims that the nanny was concerned about the Qatari billionaire’s behavior, which she believed was aggressive.

The woman was “terrified” and “locked herself in a bathroom so she could contact Janet,” Randy told ET‘s Kevin Frazier.

Hollywood’s Ugliest Divorces

Janet, 52, and Al Mana split from her husband of nearly five years in April 2017, just three months after giving birth to their only child.

A Jackson family confidant told Us in September 2017 that Janet “felt like a prisoner” living with a husband who wanted “a traditional wife who stuck with Muslim traditions.”

She has been fighting Al Mana for sole custody of Eissa. Randy previously claimed that Janet suffered “verbal abuse” during her marriage to the London-based businessman, an allegation that Al Mana’s attorneys dismissed in a statement as “deeply hurtful allegations” that they were not going to dignify with a response.

Pete Davidson has love on the brain. The Saturday Night Live star shared a sweet message to his new girlfriend, Ariana Grande, on Instagram on Thursday, May 24, after penning a candid note about dating with a mental illness.

Davidson, 24, commented “hey cutie u up” with four heart-eye emojis on a photo of Grande, 24, at a Pittsburgh Steelers game that the NFL team’s wide receiver Antonio Brown posted on his account. Brown, 29, appeared to flirt with the “No Tears Left to Cry” singer in his caption, writing, “You still welcome @stellers game baby @arianagrande #Boomin.”

The comedian’s comment came just hours after he slammed trolls who suggested that he shouldn’t date Grande because of his battle with borderline personality disorder.

“normally i wouldn’t comment on something like this cause like f—k you. but i been hearing a lot of ‘people with bpd can’t be in relationships’ talk. i just wanna let you know that’s not true,” he wrote on his Instagram Story on Thursday night. “just because someone has a mental illness does not mean they can’t be happy and in a relationship. it also doesn’t mean that person makes the relationship toxic.”

Davidson went on to encourage other people with mental illnesses to “seek help” because “it has changed my life for the better.” He concluded, “mental illness is not a joke it’s a real thing. there’s kids out there killing them selves. and it’s f—king horrific. for all those struggling i want you to know that i love you and i understand you and it is going to be okay. that’s all. love to everyone else.”

Multiple sources confirmed to Us Weekly earlier this week that the Grammy nominee and the Wild ‘N Out star are casually dating. The news came soon after Grande’s split from Mac Miller and Davidson’s breakup with Cazzie David.

The “Into You” songstress later clapped back at a troll on Twitter who criticized her for quickly moving on from what Grande called a “toxic relationship” with Miller, 26, to Davidson.

Tori Spelling Calls Dean McDermott Her ‘Rock’ After Family Drama

Tori Spelling is all about positivity! The Beverly Hills, 90210 alum opened up to Us Weekly exclusively about parenting with her husband, Dean McDermott, months after dealing with some family drama.

“My husband and I have it so balanced,” Spelling, 44, told Us at the OPI Grease Collection launch at Mel’s Drive-In in West Hollywood on Thursday, May 10. “We really balance each other with getting it all done. We’re kind of that rock for each other. I always feel you’re not given more than you can handle.”

In a way, the former True Tori star enjoys the chaotic moments in life. “The more you put on my plate, the more creative I am, the more things get done,” she said. “I could never be complacent having one child. I mean, God bless anyone that has one child. Children, whether you have six or one, it’s great. But one child, I would be like, ‘OK, but what’s next?’ It’s my thing.”

Spelling and the Chopped Canada host — who are the parents of Liam, 11, Stella, 9, Hattie, 6, Finn, 5, and Beau, 14 months — made headlines in March after a domestic incident at their family’s home in the Woodland Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles. A source told Us exclusively at the time that the couple had been “fighting a lot lately.” But just a few days later, they were spotted kissing on a TV set in Malibu.

The Stori Telling author told Us on Thursday that she feels “a little more guarded” as a mom whenever there are rumors about her personal life. “It takes everything in you to not scream from the rooftops, ‘It’s not true!’” she said. “But I’ve been in this business long enough to know that … it does eventually go away.”

And with Mother’s Day coming up, Spelling and McDermott plan to get away and spend some quality time with their children. “I think we’re probably gonna do a little staycation for the weekend,” she told Us. “It’s just going to be our family. … Dean will be on full-time kid duty. He’s on baby duty. Literally, baby doody.”

Pump Rules’ Lala Kent Calls Randall Emmett Her ‘Rock’ After Father’s Death

Lala Kent is leaning on her boyfriend, Randall Emmett, for support after the passing of her father.

The Vanderpump Rules star, 28, took to Instagram on Saturday, May 5, to share a photo of herself alongside her beau to express her gratitude for his support. “You are my rock. My heart & soul. You saved me- Kept me from drowning in the darkest time of my life,” she captioned the snap. “I cherish the human you are. Thank you, my love.”

The reality TV star revealed to fans on social media on April 23, that her father, Kent Rulon Burningham, had died. “Rest in paradise, my sweet dad. The world seems to be spinning much slower,” she captioned a sweet video of herself with her dad. “I’ve never felt so lost. I’ve never felt so sad. My world has crumbled.”

She updated her fans on Thursday, May 3, to let them know she was heading back to Los Angeles after attending his funeral in Utah. “Back to L.A., with my sweet, beautiful mama, wearing my dad’s watch, and an epic tattoo,” she wrote along with two photos, one of her holding her mother’s hand and the other revealing a heart tattoo inscribed with the word “dad.” “Repping my pops till the end of time (by @chichtattoos ♥) Dad, I promise i’m going to make you proud. I’m going to be kind and tender hearted, just like you.”

Kent’s costars in the hit Bravo reality show, including Scheana Shay, Ariana Madix, Kristen Doute, Brittany Cartwright and Katie Maloney were also in attendance at the service to support their friend.

The producer and Kent kept their relationship private for some time before going public in December 2017. She told Us Weekly in March that she sees things getting serious between them in the future. “We’re not in a rush to get married but, yeah, I see that happening,” she said. “And I see us having a family, it’s just all about timing.”

Ellen DeGeneres Accidentally Calls Jenna Dewan ‘Tatum’ on TV

Ellen DeGeneres quickly corrected herself after she introduced Jenna Dewan as Jenna Dewan Tatum on TV — even though she and Channing Tatum are no longer together.

The Step Up actress dropped by the daytime talk show with her World of Dance costars Jennifer Lopez, Derek Hough and Ne-Yo. DeGeneres blurted out “sorry” at the start of the show after the blunder and later directly spoke to Dewan about the mistake.

“I have to say, before we go to break, I’m so sorry,” the 60-year-old host said. “I introduced you and it was such a habit, and I have to say the way that you and Channing are handling everything is beautiful for your daughter and the statements have been great. I apologize. I just have known both of you for so long, and I’m so used to saying…”

Dewan, 37, chimed in: “I know. Thank you. Honestly, thank you and everybody for all the love and support. It’s truly, so amazing. Thank you. It’s all love!” Lopez then pulled the mom of daughter Everly, 4, in for a hug.

The estranged couple announced on April 2 that they have split after nearly nine years of marriage. “We have something we would like to share … It feels odd that we have to share this kind of thing with everyone, but it’s a consequence of the lives we’ve chosen to lead, which we also happen to be deeply grateful for. We’re living in an incredible moment in time, but it’s also a time where truth can easily get distorted into ‘alternative facts.’ So we want to share the truth so you know that if you didn’t read it here then it’s most certainly fiction,” they said in a joint statement at the time.

“We have lovingly chosen to separate as a couple. We fell deeply in love so many years ago and have had a magical journey together. Absolutely nothing has changed about how much we love one another, but love is a beautiful adventure that is taking us on different paths for now,” they continued. “There are no secrets nor salacious events at the root of our decision — just two best-friends realizing it’s time to take some space and help each other live the most joyous, fulfilled lives as possible. We are still a family and will always be loving dedicated parents to Everly. We won’t be commenting beyond this, and we thank you all in advance for respecting our family’s privacy.”

Last month, Us Weekly exclusively confirmed that the pair are still living together despite the breakup.
