Gus Kenworthy announced on Saturday, May 26, that his dog Beemo died of a heart defect. The Team USA athlete adopted Beemo from a dog farm during the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea, earlier this year.

“Two days ago my beautiful baby Beemo passed away,” Kenworthy captioned an Instagram photo showing the pup licking his ear. “It was completely unexpected and Matt [Wilkas] and I are beside ourselves trying to cope with her loss. For a week or so we’d been worrying because she was showing less and less interest in her food. There were several trips to the vet and on our final visit this past Thursday I asked them do a full body scan in case there was an underlying issue they had missed. Beemo went into a panic attack during the x-rays and her breathing became rapid and shallow. The scan revealed that her lungs were deteriorated and that her heart was too big for her body – a birth defect we had no way of knowing about.”

Kenworthy rushed her from that vet, who was unable to treat her, to an emergency vet where she was placed on a respirator in the hope “they could get her vitals back to a normal level so she could be treated but they were never able to do so.”

Two days ago my beautiful baby Beemo passed away. It was completely unexpected and Matt and I are beside ourselves trying to cope with her loss. For a week or so we'd been worrying because she was showing less and less interest in her food. There were several trips to the vet and on our final visit this past Thursday I asked them do a full body scan in case there was an underlying issue they had missed. Beemo went into a panic attack during the x-rays and her breathing became rapid and shallow. The scan revealed that her lungs were deteriorated and that her heart was too big for her body – a birth defect we had no way of knowing about. Unable to treat her there, I rushed her to the emergency vet where a breathing tube was put down her throat. They hoped that with a respirator breathing for her they could get her vitals back to a normal level so she could be treated but they were never able to do so. The past two days have been a blur. It all happened so fast that it's still hard to believe it. The ER doc told us that even if we'd somehow spotted the issue earlier it wouldn't have made a difference in the end. He said that she'd been living on "borrowed time" from the get go. Beemo was truly the best thing that ever happened to me and I feel so fortunate for our borrowed time together. I've never loved anything or anyone in the way that I loved that dog and she is and will always be deeply missed. She was so smart and playful. She brought so much happiness to so many people every single day. I'll always remember being out on a walk with her and every other second she would get stopped by someone wanting to pet her, kneel down and kiss her, hold her in their arms or take a photo and on many occasions a crowd of people would have formed around her. That was her power: she made people smile. She was the kindest, most gentle soul I've ever known. She loved people. She loved birds and the snow. She loved me and Matt. But most of all she loved meeting other dogs. If any of you have pets up in doggy heaven please tell them to go find Bee because she could really use a good play date right now. RIP sweet creature – your daddy loves you more than you could ever even know!

The athlete wrote that the days since losing Beemo have been “a blur.”

“It all happened so fast that it’s still hard to believe it,” he continued. “The ER doc told us that even if we’d somehow spotted the issue earlier it wouldn’t have made a difference in the end. He said that she’d been living on ‘borrowed time’ from the get go. Beemo was truly the best thing that ever happened to me and I feel so fortunate for our borrowed time together.

But most of all she loved meeting other dogs. If any of you have pets up in doggy heaven please tell them to go find Bee because she could really use a good play date right now. RIP sweet creature – your daddy loves you more than you could ever even know!”

Kenworthy and his boyfriend, Matthew Wilkas, announced in February that they had fallen for the puppy at first sight and planned to take her home after the games.

“This morning Matt and I had a heart-wrenching visit to one of the 17,000 dog farms here in South Korea. Across the country there are 2.5 million dogs being raised for food in some of the most disturbing conditions imaginable,” the freestyle skier wrote on Instagram at the time. “Yes, there is an argument to be made that eating dogs is a part of Korean culture. And, while don’t personally agree with it, I do agree that it’s not my place to impose western ideals on the people here. The way these animals are being treated, however, is completely inhumane and culture should never be a scapegoat for cruelty.”

A month later, the couple revealed Beemo was finally home with them in the states after she was quarantined. Kenworthy gushed to Us in March about the pup.

“I like human names for dogs. When we were coming up with a name from Beemo, we were going over pop queens and divas,” he said. “But then I kind of just wanted to keep it in the family with her older brother who lives with my ex, so we went with another character which is Beemo.”

Kenworthy frequently shared photos of Beemo on Instagram, and even made a separate account for her, which has over 130k followers. Kenworthy also helped rescue four dogs from the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

The rapper said into the microphone:

“Security don’t you touch him. Turn the lights on. Hold on. I got you. Don’t do that cop, he’s okay, he’s okay. He’s a part of the show. He’s all right … Everyone with a camera put your cameras down, help this kid.”

Georgina Chapman Stayed at David Oyelowo’s Home During Weinstein Scandal

Leaning on friends in her time of need. Georgina Chapman stayed at David Oyelowo’s home during the Harvey Weinstein scandal.

“I kind of found myself in a first-responder capacity,” the actor said in a Vogue profile of Chapman, 42, published on Thursday, May 10. “My wife and I were right there with her two kids, and this catastrophe was unfolding in real-time across the globe, literally your worst nightmare in terms of a marriage, in terms of the future of your kids and your business. And none of this was your own doing and yet you are entirely lumped into it.”

Oyelowo has had the Marchesa cofounder’s back for a while. They met when an 18-year-old Chapman was en route to visit a college in northern England. Eventually, their paths led them both to Hollywood.

The Selma star, 42, explained how hard it was to watch his friend of 25 years hurt after allegations of sexual misconduct were made against her husband. “The thing that was the most difficult to witness was that she quite rightly took the stance of not going out there and defending herself, because there was just too much white noise and too much bile headed in her general direction,” he said. “She felt, How dare I raise my head and say, ‘Oh, by the way, I’m suffering too?’”

The Golden Globe nominee had a front row seat to the beginning of Chapman and Weinstein’s relationship. “I was in my car on Mulholland Drive, and I got a call from [Chapman]. She said, ‘Come to Shutters on the Beach; I want you to meet my new boyfriend,’” he told Vogue. “[Chapman] was there, and the very famous producer Harvey Weinstein was there, and I was still waiting for the boyfriend to emerge until it sort of became evident: Oh, this is who she meant! And I will be 100 percent honest with you: I was very skeptical. But as time went on, as they got married, had children, there was no way of denying that this was a genuine couple.”

Chapman broke her silence in the June 2018 issue of Vogue, admitting that she was “humiliated” and “broken” in the aftermath of Weinstein being accused of sexual misconduct by over 60 women. The 66-year-old former film producer, who is under criminal investigation in multiple cities, has denied allegations of nonconsensual sex.

The fashion designer’s divorce from Weinstein was settled in January. They share two children: India, 7, and Dashiell, 5.

Looks Like Ronnie Ortiz-Magro Totally Cheated On Baby Momma Jen Harley During Jersey Shore Family Vacation!

How very Tristan Thompson of Ronnie Ortiz-Magro!

When the first trailer for Jersey Shore Family Vacation dropped, it was suggested that the MTV celeb was unfaithful to his pregnant girlfriend while fist pumping away with his costars in Miami. While we initially thought the infidelity tease was meant to build up hype for the reboot, Thursday’s episode ended with Ronnie seemingly cheating on Jen Harley.

Ugh. To make matters worse, this betrayal aired mere weeks after the twosome welcomed daughter Ariana Sky into the world. You can take the boy out of the Jersey Shore, but not the Jersey Shore out of the boy.

Here’s how the apparent cheating went down…

In typical Jersey Shore fashion, the roommates hit up a club in Miami. While out, Jwoww spotted a nice blonde that Pauly D might enjoy. Shockingly, Ronnie swooped in and started talking to Antonia from France. Even The Situation noticed what was going on, as he quipped:

“Single Ronnie is in the building.”

Close pal Vinny Guadagnino also weighed in on the situation, as he relayed:

“Ronnie is full-tilt right now. He is a wrecking ball. If Ronnie gets any closer to this girl he’s about to have a second baby mama.”

Eek. Snooki attempted to intervene when Ronnie invited Antonia and her three friends back to their vacation house. She warned him:

“I love you, but this looks bad.”

Sadly, Ortiz-Magro didn’t heed his friends’ warnings and brought the side chick home with him. While in the jacuzzi with the ladies, Ronnie informed his French guest:

“You’re beautiful. You’re gorgeous. You’re going to get me into a lot of trouble.”

Stawp it, Rahn!

But stop he did not, as he went on to give Antonia a tour of the house. Kissing noises were heard behind a close door and Pauly D was dismissed when he offered Ronnie some water.

Ironically, earlier in the episode, Ronnie claimed that he didn’t give a “fuck” about ex Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola as he has “a kid on the way.” How quickly he forgets about his responsibilities!! Smh.

For more Jersey Shore Family Vacation drama, be sure to tune in to MTV Thursdays at 8 p.m.!

Tristan Thompson Booed During Baskeball Game Amid Cheating Scandal

Not the warmest welcome. Tristan Thompson wasn’t exactly well received during his last basketball game of the season before playoffs on Wednesday, April 11, after he cheated on girlfriend Khloé Kardashian.

The Cleveland Cavaliers player, 27, was booed and jeered by attendees as his team went head-to-head against the New York Knicks at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio.

Thompson’s name wasn’t announced when he came into the game in the first quarter, but as soon as his face was shown on the big screen there were audible boos. “Everyone in the stadium could hear it,” an attendee tells Us. “Tristan must have heard, but didn’t change his expression.”

One fan was also shown in a photo on social media holding up a “We Love Khloe” sign.

Thompson made headlines on Tuesday, April 10, after the Daily Mail published photos of him locking lips with a mystery brunette, who Twitter users identified as Lani Blair, at a NYC club on Saturday, April 7. The pair were photographed arriving at NYC’s Four Seasons hotel together in the early hours of Sunday, April 8, and she left the following day with a Louis Vuitton overnight bag.

A source exclusively told Us Weekly that Kardashian, 33, was blindsided upon discovering that Thompson, with whom she is expecting a daughter, had been unfaithful. “Khloé was at their home in Cleveland when she found out. She is shell-shocked and beside herself,” an insider said of the nine-month-pregnant reality star, who is “in total disbelief.”

Another pal close to the Revenge Body host added: “Khloé knew going into it that Tristan was an NBA player who would be on the road and facing lots of temptations. She heard the noise and knew what that was all about, but she felt that Tristan was different. They were always FaceTiming and in constant communication. He made her feel on top of the world and unlike any man she has been with. She trusted him.”

Us broke the news in September 2017 that the E! personality and Thompson are expecting their first child. She confirmed the news three months later and revealed the baby’s sex in March.
