Khloe K. Praises Kanye’s New Album Despite Tristan Thompson Diss

Sending a message. Khloé Kardashian gave a shout-out to brother-in-law Kanye West‘s new album, even though he slammed her boyfriend, Tristan Thompson, in one of his songs.

Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson Cheating Scandal: Everything We Know So Far

The reality TV star, 33, sent out a tweet on Saturday, June 2, praising the rapper’s album, simply writing, “Ye” along with three fire emojis.

Ye 🔥🔥🔥

— Khloé (@khloekardashian) June 2, 2018

West’s seven-track album, Ye, was released on Friday, June 1, and he addressed the Cleveland Cavaliers player’s cheating scandal in the song “All Mine,” rapping, “All these THOTs on Christian Mingle / Almost what got Tristan single / If you don’t ball like him or Kobe [Bryant] / Guarantee that bitch gonna leave you.”

News of Thompson’s cheating on his pregnant girlfriend broke in April, two days before Kardashian gave birth to the couple’s first child, daughter True.

Celebrity Feuds: The Biggest Ever!

Kardashian’s praise for Ye comes after fans speculated that she was shading West, 40, by listening to Taylor Swift‘s “Delicate” in a Snapchat video on Friday.

“I just don’t really have the motivation today to work out,” she said in the clip as she sighed without addressing the music playing in the background. “Just not that into it today. What do you guys do when you need motivation to work out?”

West and her sister Kim Kardashian, 37, have famously feuded with Swift in the past.

Khloé also paid tribute to her siblings earlier on Saturday, tweeting, “I have the best sisters in the world! I feel so blessed!! Built in besties!! I love you guys!! Rob, you’re already my ACE for life!!”

Proud mama! Sara Gilbert praised her Roseanne costar and onscreen daughter, Emma Kenny, who recently announced that she’d be seeking treatment after going down a “slippery slope.”

Celebrities Who Have Been to Rehab

“I just first want to say, Emma, I’m so proud of you. I know that the whole cast and crew are so proud of you and it takes a lot of courage to… We all have demons and it takes a lot of courage to face them, particularly at 18. I envy you,” gushed Gilbert, 43, on the Thursday, April 12, episode of The Talk. “If I could go back to being 18 and start doing things to better myself at the pace you’re doing, I would be a better person today. So I commend you, I love you and I know you will come out the other side. And thank you for speaking up and being an example of other people.”

Kenny made headlines on Wednesday, April 11, when she revealed her decision to get help. “I was being naive and very immature and I was doing things I should not be doing because it was illegal and I’m not 21,” Kenny, who portrays Harris on the ‘80s reboot, told E! News. “It was a slippery slap that I did not want to go down. And I knew that I needed to stop. I want to be the healthiest, best Emma that I can be, and by going to treatment that’s what’s going to happen, and I’m going to continue on that positive road.”

Celebrity Health Scares

The Shameless star also sent an uplifting message to her loyal following. “I just want to send a message to my fans that it’s OK to admit that you need help, and it doesn’t make you weak. I’m going to come out on the other side, the True Emma that I’ve always been.”

Costars Reunited!

Kenny’s announcement came two days after she tweeted her decision to take a social media hiatus. “Hello & goodbye (for a bit),” she wrote on Monday, April 9. “I’ve decided to take a break from social media and LA for a minute. This sounds so cliche but this town/industry can really get to you. Going to re-find my peace happiness xo emma.”

George Clooney Praises Parkland Students: ‘You Make Me Proud’

They have his support. George Clooney is sending his love and support to Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school’s students Emma Dowd, Lauren Newman and Rebecca Schneid, who recently survived a deadly school shooting in February in Parkland, Florida.

Celebrities’ Political Affiliations

The three students are the co-editors-in-chief at the Eagle Eye — the student newspaper at the school — and they took over the Guardian’s website on Friday, March 23, to cover the March for Our Lives demonstration taking place on Saturday, March 24.

The students requested interviews with politicians and celebrities, including Marco Rubio, Bernie Sanders and George and Amal Clooney as part of their coverage. The couple, who recently donated $ 500,000 to the cause, turned down the request, but the Ocean’s Eleven actor sent them a heartfelt letter in lieu of an interview.

“Thank you for your note and congratulations on the incredible work you and all of your fellow students are doing to make the country a safer place,” Clooney, 56, wrote. “Amal and I are 100 percent behind you and will be marching in DC on the 24th, but we both feel very strongly that this is your march. Your moment. Young people are taking it to the adults and that has been your most effective tool.”

Celebrity Activists!

He continued: “The fact that no adults will speak on the stage in DC is a powerful message to the world that if we can’t do something about gun violence then you will. The issue is going to be this, anyone you ask would feel proud to be interviewed by you but it’s so much more effective if it’s young people.”

Clooney believes that the students should embrace this moment and let their voices be heard without adults interfering. “It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to point to this moment and say it belongs to you,” he wrote. “You certainly should do what you want but that would be my hope for you.”

“Amal and I stand behind you, in support of you, in gratitude to you. You make me proud of my country again,” he concluded.

Celebrity Deaths in 2018: Stars We’ve Lost

As previously reported, former student Nikolas Cruz was arrested and charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder after he opened fire at the school on February 14 — leaving 17 students and teachers dead and 14 injured. Since then, the survivors have come together to advocate for gun control. In the past month, the students have delivered powerful speeches at protests, appeared on a CNN town hall, and some met with President Donald Trump at the White House.

The March For Our Lives demonstration is happening in Washington, D.C., on Saturday, March 24. The nonprofit organization Everytown For Gun Safety and five of the shooting’s survivors — including Emma González and Cameron Kasky — organized the event.

Tyler Baltierra penned an emotional and sweet message to wife Catelynn Lowell as she continues treatment for mental health issues.

The Teen Mom OG star, 26, announced on Snapchat on February 10 that he would be visiting his wife, who entered treatment in Arizona for a third time in January, during the facility’s Family Week.  Baltierra, who shares daughter Novalee, 3, with Lowell seemed downcast in the clip, saying, “It’s going to be a super, super long emotional week and a pretty long day. Yippee.”

Stars Who’ve Battled Mental Health Issues

But the trip to see Lowell seems to have gone better than he anticipated. Following his visit, the reality TV star shared a photo of the high school sweethearts on Instagram on Friday, February 16, and wrote, “Seeing this gorgeous woman & all the work she has done has given me such hope, a feeling of peace, and unconditional love that is hard to explain with words. It was a very emotionally intense Family Week Program, but I know that our love & commitment towards each other will persevere through anything this life throws our way.”

Baltierra continued to reflect on his relationship with the Conquering Chaos author, retweeting a fan on Saturday, February 17, who praised him for sticking by Lowell: “Marriage & relationships aren’t always sunshine & rainbows. I believe love is not a feeling, it’s a choice. A choice to sacrifice for that person, a choice of dedicated commitment to another & understanding the selfless acts that are required from both to maintain serenity.”

The MTV star also looked back on his experience dropping his father, Butch Baltierra, off to rehab to get help with his addiction issues. Retweeting a sneak peek of the upcoming Teen Mom OG episode, he tweeted, “Wow…that was intense. I never realized how hard it was going to actually be dropping my dad off to rehab. You would think growing up with him in & out of prison my whole life, that leaving him would be easy…it’s not when you have a damaged inner child literally screaming.”

Baltierra has been open about his own experience with depression and his personal struggles. On February 5, he shared an emotional message on Instagram where he told fans, “We’re humans, we’re allowed to have bad days, hard times & weak moments. Don’t be ashamed of what makes us humans special. You’re loved. You’re worthy.”

ICYMI: Ashley Judd Praises James Franco’s ‘Terrific’ Response To Sexual Misconduct Allegations!

A lot of James Franco fans are unhappy with his response to accusations by multiple women of sexually exploitative behavior — but Ashley Judd is not one of them.

As you surely know, The Disaster Artist actor has been hit with a sexual misconduct scandal as multiple women accused the A-lister of sexually exploitative behavior. While many have spoken out against the Freaks & Geeks alum, James has found an unexpected ally in Miz Judd.

During a conversation with BBC‘s HARDtalk on Saturday, Ashley revealed she was actually quite pleased with James’ response to the troubling allegations.

ICYMI, the Divergent actress stated:

“I think that what James said is terrific. And I think that we’ve all behaved, at a certain level, unconsciously, and done things that were insensitive, inappropriate, without necessarily understanding that they were. I mean, we’ve all operated with a certain amount of tone deafness, and I like the culpability, and we have to have restorative justice.”

As Ashley was one of the first people to speak on the record about Harvey Weinstein‘s predatory behavior, she has been praised as a silence breaker and can be credited for contributing to the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements. Thus, Judd’s support of Franco is HUGE.

She continued:

“This is about men and women being all together and having a more equitable and just workplace, home life, social spaces. I mean, we know that when women are empowered in the workplace and are in decision-making positions that workplaces have better financial outcomes and there’s less harassment when there is more diversity. And it takes that kind of individual accountability to collectively make the change on a large scale.”

Following his big win at the Golden Globes, the 39-year-old stopped by The Late Show With Stephen Colbert and Late Night With Seth Meyers, where he denied the allegations and vocalized his support for the Time’s Up campaign.

It’ll be inneresting to see if this scandal affects whether or not The Disaster Artist gets any Oscar love…

As always, be sure to check back for any and all updates!!

Allison Mack Praises Alleged Sex Cult, Recruits More “Slaves”

You know how Smallville star Allison Mack's been outed as an alleged sex-slave cult master, second or third in command of the whole thing? We didn't want to believe the allegations but … you have to see this.

In the video below, you can see for yourself how Allison Mack raves about Jness, one of NXIVM's "empowerment" programs, in an effort to use her celebrity status to recruit more members.

Allison mack raves about jness

And that's not even the first time that she's ranted, on camera, about how "wonderful" Jness is.

Allison Mack is accused of being an extremely high-ranking member of NXIVM's alleged sex-slave cult, DOS.

According to extensive allegations about NXIVM and DOS, women who join the cult surrender nude or incriminating photos of themselves that could be used for blackmail, go on starvation diets, and are required to take cold showers.

Most sensationally, as first revealed by The New York Times' expose, the women are branded in their pubic region with the initials of Keith Raniere.

NXIVM presents itself as a self-help organization with a hierarchy, but was accused of being a pyramid scheme of sorts for ages — well before the abuses within were revealed.

The expose that came out this year detailed how the women are subjected to corporal punishment if they fail to do sufficient recruiting on their own.

To make matters more disturbing, Allison Mack is now believed to be Keith Raniere's second- or third-in-command, and has been described as "both a perpetrator and a victim" of the brainwashing and abuse within the alleged NXIVM cult.

The video below, in which Allison Mack actively promotes NXIVM's "empowerment" program, Jness, is pretty alarming in a number of ways. But she's been speaking Jness' praises on camera for years.

In a 2013 Q&A, Allison Mack had a lot to say when "a fan" asked the "totally not planted" question of what it's like to work for Jness.

She spews a lot of word salad — that is, she uses a lot of words without saying much that is concrete or sensible.

"Working for Jness I think is the most gratifying thing that I've ever done."

Again, this is an actress who starred on a TV show that ran for 10 seasons.

"It's the most challenging thing I've ever done because it consists of working with a group of people in a way that is totally interdependent."

She tries to define what she means by that.

"Meaning: we're all working together and no one is ever punished and no one is ever told that they're wrong and they're bad."

That seems at odds with everything that we've heard about NXIVM.

"The most important thing in working for Jness is relationships in Jness."

That's something that you'd expect to hear from a cult member about a cult. If somebody's discouraged from having close friends who aren't part of their religion or self-help group, something is wrong.

"And I'm not used to that, I'm used to the objective being met, I'm used to having, like, strict hard fast deadlines and lots of fear and punishment if I don't get it right."

What does she mean by "lots of fear and punishment," exactly? Was there some scary stuff going on behind the scenes on Smallville if actors forgot their lines?

We somehow doubt it.

"And in working for Jness, there isn't any of that, so it comes purely from a place of self-motivation and self-direction."

Again, part of the recent allegations is a claim that "slaves" who fail to properly obey Allison Mack are subjected to corporal punishment.

The creepy, cult-like language increases … in fact, Allison Mack is starting to feel a lot like NXIVM's answer to Scientology's golden boy, Tom Cruise.

"And that is really difficult. But I would say that working for Jness is the most satisfying and purposeful thing that I've ever done."

"Watching the women who are in Jness completely transform and evolve in a way that is so pure is such a privilege."

Now, talking about "transforming" is innocuous on its own, as lots of people talk about that when they talk about improving their lives.

But using the word "pure" in this context is … a red flag. It's just creepy language that's probably been repeated over and over.

"And really literally seeing people's life paths completely turn … where in one moment, they felt that this was all that they had and all that they could do, and all of a sudden they come through Jness and they start working with us and in our community."

When someone is branded, fearful of punishment, and subjected to a starvation diet, we'd imagine that they do seem to "change" pretty suddenly.

"It's like a whole 'nother life is born out of their new experience of themselves. And that's an incredibly satisfying, gratifying thing to do."

"I think it's challenging because I think Jness is an organization that looks to all participants to be 100% responsible for themselves and for their lives."

"So it makes it hard to blame people for mistakes that are made when you're always looking at your own responsibility and participation in the situation."

That is barely intelligible.

"But that's just hard for my ego and my pride."

It sounds like Allison Mack has been told that some of her original thoughts are just the products of ego and pride and need to be suppressed for her own well-being.

That's just a guess, though.

"Once I started the program I realized what I was looking for wasn’t a relationship, it was an experience about myself and in my life."

Well, allegedly seeking out sex partners and ordering them to Keith Raniere's bed, which is what the claims say is one of her responsibilities, sure sounds like an experience.

 

"And once I  understand how to have that experience about myself and in my life for me, then I can have the relationship I want or not, but I’m okay in either circumstance."

That's just an overly complicated way of saying "I need to know myself before I date," but … there seems to be a lot more behind the scenes.

"Going forward into my life from this place with that recognition I feel like the possibilities are endless and there’s no fear of shooting what I want for ideally, there’s not reason to settle because any way I look at it I’m going to be good, and that’s awesome."

If you're noticing that she's using words and phrases in strange ways, a lot of cults have insulated language habits that they use to exclude outsiders, reinforce their ideas, and forge a sense of belonging.

"We have a much more joyful and a much more efficient existence."

Yeah, that sounds like a line that aliens would say right before they extract your brain.

"Working for Jness is grounding and satisfying and humbling and wonderful."

Again, we don't think that Allison Mack is deliberately behaving in a predatory manner.

There's nothing sinister to her intentions.

Accusations suggest that she was recruited at a vulnerable point in her life and probably started off in the "normal" self-help parts of NXIVM, and it's claimed that she was gradually brainwashed like the others — and, because of her celebrity status, promoted.

As you'll see in this video, though she's always been a slender gal, Allison Mack looks shockingly gaunt.

We're not body-shaming her or concern-trolling, we're just alarmed by the starvation diets that have been reported to go on within NXIVM. It's claimed that Allison Mack consumes only 500 to 800 calories a day.

Though Allison Mack is accused of perpetrating abuse to other cult members, we have to wonder where — after brainwashing — accountability begins and ends.

Aaron Carter Praises & Disses Justin Bieber At The Same Time! Pro!

Aaron Carter‘s feud with Justin Bieber lives on!

Related: Listen To Aaron’s New Song!

The 29-year-old was recently on the Allegedly podcast with Theo Von and Matthew Cole Weiss, where he discussed Justin and even shaded him a bit, saying:

“I hope you’re enjoying my pavement.”

Harsh.

But the singer had good things to say about the 22-year-old as well, praising his singing ability for one thing:

“Trust me, when I was a little kid and doing it – first of all when I was his age, I couldn’t sing anywhere close to how good he is. He’s a way better singer than me. It was just always – it was always different.”

How nice of him to say that!

On the other hand, Aaron addressed the lack of support he was given on radio when he was younger, although he’s quick to point out that he’s still sold more records than Justin:

“When I was younger, I was looked at as taboo. ‘This little kid that looks like a girl singing, you want us to have him on our radio station? You’re crazy, hell no.’ …I was never a radio artist. Ever. But somehow I sold even more records even to this day still than Justin Bieber.”

Really? We might need a fact check on that one.

And when asked if he would ever do a duet with Justin as part of his comeback, Aaron said, “absolutely not.”

Meanwhile, Biebsy is too busy trolling The Weeknd to pay attention to this feud.
