The three British Islamic State militants responsible for guarding foreign hostages are nicknamed “The Beatles” by captives because of their recognizable accents.
Ringo Starr would prefer they weren’t.
The European jihadists are reportedly the most merciless with their hostages. One source told NBC News, “Whenever the Beatles showed up, there was some kind of physical beating or torture.” The British murderer of American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff is named “John,” which some reports indicate is what fellow militants call him, while others suggest it’s a nod to John Lennon. (Yes, the same Lennon who sang, “Imagine” and “Give Peace a Chance.”)
Starr, the drummer of the iconic band, told British media that equating the brutal militants to the peace-promoting Fab Four was “bull—-.”
“What they are doing out there is against everything The Beatles stood for,” Starr said. But the musician acknowledged that there’s nothing he can do about it.
Meanwhile, a former Islamic State, also known as ISIS, member told CNN this week that using a British man to carry out the executions of Foley and Sotloff was likely a deliberate effort by the insurgents to “project the image that a European, or a Western person, executed an American so that they can showcase their Western members and appeal to others outside Syria and make them feel that they belong to the same cause.”
Pregnancy rumors are surrounding Michael Jackson’s 16-year-old daughter Paris today after paps caught her on a dinner date sporting what looked like a baby bump.
A source was quoted by the Daily Star newspaper as saying: “I saw her at dinner and she twice made a toast drinking water instead of wine. That and the prominent stomach bulge got people talking.”
News that the troubled star may be expecting her first child comes just days after she was reportedly spotted looking at engagement rings with her supposed boyfriend.
Paris has stayed away from the spotlight for the past year while attending therapeutic boarding school Diamond Ranch Academy in Utah following her attempted suicide last June.
The teen – who has grown close to her biological mother Debbie Rowe over the past 12 months – was given the all-clear from doctors in May and is reportedly adamant she won’t return to the $14,000-per-month private school this fall.
If you liked the first "America's Next Top Model" cycle with guys, wait until Cycle 21 really gets going -- it's a lot more dramatic and a lot sexier, promises judge Kelly Cutrone.
"To be honest, last season I was like,'Are you kidding me? How can you have so many hot kids of the opposite sex in the same house and no one's hooking up?' This just a dis to young people everywhere," she tells Zap2it.
The aspiring models were all locked in a house together with very little access to the outside world, but still there was just one (sort of innocent) showmance in the bunch.
"It's the one time in your life you don't have to work, you have no texts, there's nothing else to do. You get free alcohol and you're getting paid to model. What more do you want? I didn't get it," Cutrone says.
Thankfully, the casting department recruited a bunch more single and ready to mingle
"This season is good because the girls are a little spicier and the boys get sucker-punched a lot quicker. There's some interesting play between the girls and the guys."
Of course, Cutrone and her fellow judges aren't really privy to the in-house dynamics but information does leak out to them during the judging sessions.
"We don't ever get to see everything that happens in the house but for sure I think it's a lot more drama this season. It's a good season. The cast was really good and there are some shockers. We'd hear things on the judging panel and we'd be like, 'What?' There's a lot of those shocker moments."
"America's Next Top Model" airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
Yes, this show is still on. Thoughts on tonight's episode? Denzel's facial hair weave is atrocious.
"Three names epitomized the fashion world in the ’90s – designers Marc Jacobs and Alexander McQueen, and their muse, Kate Moss. The trio are the focus of New York Post writer and editor Maureen Callahan’s new book Champagne Supernovas. This dishy ride through the 1990s fashion world takes readers behind the catwalk, when the ‘heroin chic’ look was mainstream, Jacobs was designing his now famous ‘Grunge’ collection, and the tortured McQueen was breaking rules with his outrageous runway shows."
"Champagne Supernovas: Kate Moss, Marc Jacobs, Alexander McQueen, and the '90s Renegades Who Remade Fashion" puts readers in the front row and three of the era's biggest names in the catwalk spotlight.
Author Maureen Callahan contends that the waifish, plain models and thrift-shop grunge aesthetic of '90s fashion was an antidote to the "Glamazons" and gold-plated excess of the 1980s. There was a hunger for authenticity, and no one kept it more real than designers McQueen and Jacobs, and their muse, model Kate Moss.
Rising above childhoods marked by insecurity, financial instability and a yearning to escape the conventional, they had an unquestionable and enduring influence on modern fashion.
The book's title has three clever meanings: "champagne supernova" is a lyric from a psychedelic song by the '90s band Oasis and can refer to bubbly in a martini glass rimmed with cocaine. A supernova is when a star gets so bright it explodes, the perfect metaphor for the three profiled in the book, who each flame out at least once, but come back fighting.
The pace is as quick as an H&M runway knockoff. Callahan's prose is tight, and she stitches together momentum and suspense by alternating chapters on the trio. However, it's easy to lose track of the many minor players when the narrative switches focus and the timeline bounces around.
A page turner filled with juicy behind-the-scenes tales of partying and bad behavior, the book describes all three figures as damaged but scrappy. Style-watchers will love the backstage drama, and pop culture fans may gain new appreciation for design as an art form.
A writer and editor for the New York Post, Callahan doesn't sentimentalize, and her style is blunt and detailed. She didn't speak to any of her subjects, relying on print sources and interviews with their friends and colleagues to fill in the blanks.
Callahan likens the industry to a giant chessboard, with fashion houses moving players around, and eager, young designers as pawns in their game. Many ambitious designers, including Isaac Mizrahi, Tom Ford, McQueen and Jacobs, wanted the status of running a line at Perry Ellis, Gucci, Givenchy and Louis Vuitton, but all said they were miserable once in the spot.
The corporations gave them little creative control while demanding a backbreaking productivity rate.
Moss — referred to as the "grunge goddess of the U.K."— quickly rose from a skinny, flat-chested teen with crooked teeth to international superstar. Early black-and-white photographs by documentary photographer Corrine Day that show her staring into the camera with messy hair and no makeup got the attention of Calvin Klein.
"This was Corrine showing the world what these avatars of perfection really looked like. (She was) codifying a new kind of glamour, one informed by imperfection, lassitude, vice, decay," Callahan writes.
Klein — whose company was on shaky ground — chose Moss for his stripped-down ad campaign, which turned the brand around and made her a household name.
As she matured, her unique style emerged, mixing high-end designer items with vintage finds, dresses with sneakers and shorts with rain boots. Callahan argues that Moss is the most influential model in history, inspiring fashion lines from paparazzi street photos and popularizing staples like skinny jeans and ballet flats.
McQueen was an artist who realized his darkest fantasies of sex and violence in the outrageous clothing and accessories on his runways, Callahan maintains. His early collections were both panned and celebrated for breaking rules and pushing boundaries, and the book's photographs illustrate the audacity of his shows.
Jacobs is a genius at identifying trends well before the mainstream. Kids in New York's East Village inspired his now-famous "Grunge" collection, which was ridiculed and got him fired, but now informs fashion standards. Often fusing street chic with luxury, he's known for his innovative whimsy, like reinventing the classic Louis Vuitton bag with graffiti-inspired colors.
Callahan emphasizes the connection between '90s fashion and other art forms, citing the movies "Trainspotting" and "Kids," and bands like Nirvana and Pearl Jam. "There is a through-line from the minimalism of Calvin Klein's early '90s ad campaign with Kate to the aesthetic Steve Jobs created at Apple ... and a general public more attuned to design than ever," Callahan writes.
McQueen, Jacobs and Moss were ahead of their time, Callahan argues. They took risks that caused personal and professional downfalls, but came back to create again. They'll be remembered as pioneers who defined what is beautiful, edgy and cool.
Marc Jacobs may be New York’s fashion darling, but according to a new book, he remains estranged from his own family after a complicated upbringing. “Champagne Supernovas,” a new book by the New York Post’s Maureen Callahan, delves into the designer’s life, including the depths of his estrangement from his brother, sister and uncle.
His parents worked at the William Morris Agency in New York, but Marc’s father died when he was 7. His mother Judy, who remarried twice, suffered from mental illness. Marc’s uncle Jeffrey Weisbord told Callahan the designer and his siblings were neglected after their father’s death. “My sister went on a cruise and left the kids with the housekeeper, who was having parties,” he said. Social services stepped in.
Marc was in his teens when he went to live with his fashionable grandmother Helen on the Upper West Side, while his siblings, Julie and Paul, went into foster care in New Jersey. “That’s when Marc stopped communicating with his sister and brother,” says Weisbord, who blames the grandmother, whom Marc describes as his first fashion muse. “She did everything she could to alienate him from everybody.” One of the last times Weisbord saw Marc was during a visit to his mother in a psychiatric hospital, saying Marc seemed “uncomfortable.”
Callahan tells us that the designer’s sister is a New Jersey housewife and his brother works in real estate in California. While they did not return calls, Callahan learned Jacobs did reach out to his sister once, sending her a wedding gift of Champagne flutes. Weisbord says he has repeatedly tried to contact Marc, including when his mother died. Neither Marc nor his siblings attended their mother’s funeral. While his rep didn’t get back to us, Marc has previously said, “I never believed that idea that you’re supposed to love the members of your family. I hate the idea of obliged feelings — I just think that’s a huge waste of time . . . I can’t think of anyone as detached from their family as I am.”
“I’m with my girl and [some other guys are] looking at her and I was like, I’ve just been training for three months how to be a real fighter for a TV show and I could hurt you now,” he recently told MTV News. “It was a moment when I was like, I’ve got to write about that because the fact that I got so passionate about it so quickly means that there is a song there.”
The solo star just released his single “Jealous” off his upcoming self-titled album (due out November 11) and the singer is embracing his R&B influences, much like he did with the preceding track, “Chains.” But this time he’s bringing a funkier upbeat sound that is refreshing and much different than anything we’ve heard from the youngest Jonas brother.
Meanwhile, Nick has been promoting his new single by showing off his body.

Nev Schulman, host of MTV’s “Catfish: The TV Show,” only found his true self after someone hid their own from him.
In the 2010 documentary “Catfish,” Schulman exposed a troubled housewife in the Midwest who had lured him into an online relationship by posing as a gorgeous young woman.
In his new book, “In Real Life: Love, Lies & Identity in the Digital Age” (Grand Central), Schulman reveals his own dirty little secrets by way of encouraging everyone to be more honest about themselves.
“I was a d—,” the 29-year-old says. “I always put other people down. And I was aggressively flirtatious with single and not-single women.”
Schulman, who with his brother Ariel (Rel), owned a photo/film production agency in New York that became even hotter after the success of the documentary, decided to change his ways when he landed the television show “Catfish” in 2012.
He did so by becoming celibate and quitting Facebook.
“I knew this was my window of opportunity, this was the moment that if I was ever going to grow up and become the guy I wanted to be, it was now,” Schulman says.
“I was spending too much time pursuing women and other distractions.”
The celibacy ended after 265 days when he found himself in a meaningful relationship with indie musician Shanee Pink. But he has never returned to Facebook, except for a fan page. These days he’s wary of false selves.
“If you are on Facebook, Instagram or any social media that requires an online identity and profile, even if you are totally honest, you are still not representing your true self,” says Schulman. “You are curating who you are.”
Schulman and co-host Max Joseph have spent three seasons on “Catfish” introducing “hopefuls” to the cruel reality of their online relationships. Often they find that even if they’re not the victim of an outright hoax, the person they’ve fallen into a virtual romance with has been lying about one or more critical matters.
Manti Te’o, now an NFL linebacker, became the subject of national ridicule in 2013 when it was revealed that the girlfriend whose tragic death he had sobbed about before the cameras was actually a man who had been duping him online for years.
But Schulman says most catfishing begins with lesser deceptions that grow. And in many cases, the victim is looking for a fraudulent relationship too, though they wouldn’t put it that way.
“What many people are looking for in an online relationship is a very specific, very controlled level of affection. It’s a very selfish way to go into a relationship. But they do that because they are not willing to take their real selves into the real world.”
Schulman freely admits that his own feelings of inadequacy made him vulnerable to the overtures of Angela Wesselman, the 39-old-housewife who first posed as an 8-year-old girl and then her 19-year-old sister, Megan, to draw Schulman into a romantic relationship online.
Wesselman, exposed in the documentary “Catfish,” obviously had her problems. But Schulman stresses that what catfishers and hopefuls have in common is that neither is willing to deal with the personal issues that stand in the way of having a meaningful relationship in real life.
“Hopefuls and catfish are two sides of the same coin,” he writes. “I thought I could put all the negative stuff away in a box — the hypersexuality, the lack of focus, the general d—ishness — and work on trying to be the good person I hoped to be.”
The problem was that it was so much easier to pass himself off as a better person online than to become one in real life.
Schulman says he quit Facebook because he wanted actual rather than virtual friendships. And love. He was finally willing to make changes that were much harder than merely glossing his profile.
“It was the single best decision I’ve ever made,” he says. “Being loved, or liked for your real self... is worth anything you have to do to get there.”
"It has a more universal message, which is passionately anti-war," Roger Waters says.
If a concert film can be emotional and even require a tissue, Roger Waters The Wall is it.
Roger Waters Premieres His New Doc at Toronto International Film Festival
Film Festival Saturday (Sept. 6) night for the world premiere of this unique live concert documentary. The film takes his strong anti-war stance and interweaves a highly personal mission into concert footage from his 2010-2013 sold out The Wall Live tour, which actually started in Toronto.
The 133-minute documentary, which includes all 26 songs from Pink Floyd’s 1979 album, The Wall, is still seeking a distributor.
“The only difference in the movie is that I’ve made a road movie about visiting the graves of both my grandfather and my father -- well, my father doesn’t have a grave because his remains were never found. He died in 1934 at Anzio [Italy] in the Second World War, but there is a memorial to him which during the movie I visit,” Waters told Billboard before the screening.
“I basically visit all kinds of serious iconic places with friends of mine from the past, in this movie. I hope that that road movie is integrated within the context of the concert movie we’ve made and serves to accentuate some of the points that we made in the concert.”
Waters worked closely with co-director and co-writer Sean Evans, the creative director on The Wall Live and previous visuals designer for Waters’ 2006-2008 The Dark Side of the Moon Live tour and his opera Ça Ira.
“It has to do with his impetus for writing The Wall,” Evans says of the narrative component to the film. “It’s all one big circle and it’s great how it all ties back.”
In The Wall Live -- based on the songs from Pink Floyd’s classic double album, The Wall, and subsequent tour -- Waters hammered home the idea that war is commerce and the immense cost in human lives. The stage show includes military costumes, animation of fighter planes and bombs, and dozens of fan-submitted photos of people all over the world whose lives were lost to war in this last century.
The original album and Alan Parker’s legendary 1982 film were based on the destructive life of an isolated rock star whose father was killed in action during World War II.
“I wrote this piece nearly 40 years ago. It came to me a few years ago that it had a broader message than the original message of the whiny guy who spat at the kid in Montreal in 1977,” Waters says, referencing his notorious reaction to a disruptive fan during Pink Floyd’s In The Flesh/Animals tour.
“And it has a more universal message, which is passionately anti-war, believing that war is a business -- Smedley Butler’s whole ‘War Is A Racket.’ It’s all about people making money. It actually doesn’t help the people who are expected to be collateral damage -- and most casualties in modern warfare are civilians.”
Like the concert, the documentary includes all The Wall songs in chronological order, but Waters’ road trip makes the message more powerful. He is not just looking at war from the outside; he knows firsthand the lifelong pain such loss has on the families of those left behind.
As the end credits roll, he respectfully shows all the photos of fallen loved ones.
After the screening, Waters did a 25-minute Q&A session, telling the audience at the Elgin Theatre he hoped this new film version of The Wall is “more universal and ecumenical and anti-war and humanitarian than the original version that I did with my much loved old colleagues from Pink Floyd, Dave and Rick and Nick.”
He added another hope -- that we’d “find a different way of organizing our politics and our commerce that don’t require that we murder each other.”
“Because we are all brothers and sisters under the skin and above it,” he says. “I know it sounds ridiculous to say, but it’s super important that we stop lopping bombs over the top of the wall and start trying to dismantle it so that we can say ‘Hi’ to whoever is on the other side, whether the divide is religious or nationalistic or political or economical.”
Roger Waters Premieres His New Doc at Toronto International Film Festival
"Roger Waters: The Wall" chronicles his recent tour covering the seminal 1979 Pink Floyd album.
Roger Waters celebrated his 71st birthday in style with a world premiere of his new documentary at the Toronto International Film Festival.
When the former Pink Floyd front man walked out on stage to introduce the film, a fan in the packed Elgin Theater screamed out happy birthday. That began an impromptu chorus of "Happy Birthday," and Waters graciously acknowledged his age with an expletive.
Waters told the audience he began working with co-director Sean Evans five years ago to update the show with a more ecumenical and anti-war approach. Since it kicked off four years ago in Toronto, the tour has grossed nearly $500 million.
Waters came back out for the post-film Q&A to a standing ovation. Moderated by TIFF CEO Piers Handling, the question of Waters' strong political feelings and the criticism he received for it came up early.
Waters politely responded by saying that his strong, humane traits came from his parents, but he wasn't there to defend himself or fight with anybody.
The musician has spoken out about Israeli treatment of Palestinians and has refused to play any shows in Israel.
The film does not have a release date.
Nicki Minaj Pink Print album release still not determined, album will feature a collaboration with Remy Ma.
The 31-year-old Queens-born rapper is set to release a new album, titled The Pink Print.
According to sources, release was initially reported to be on November 28, but recently, Minaj reps informed Billboard that the release date has not yet been determined.
The album would follow Minaj's 2012 record Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. The hit, "Anaconda", "Pills N Potions", as well as "Chi-Raq" and the Soulja Boy-featuring "Yasss Bish!!", are just but a few of those songs Minaj previewed as new materials, but nonetheless, there is still no news on the tracklist.
During an interview with MTV, Minaj explains that the album's title is a "hats off" and reinterpretation to Jay-Z's famous 2001 LP, The Blueprint.
"I wanted to do that, I wanted to be like Jay Z," she explained. "I felt like with what I'm doing, I want female rappers to be able to pattern themselves with what I've done one day."
Minaj described the album as "more stripped", according to Billboard, where Minaj later gave the following quirky plug while on the red carpet of this years' Billboard Music Awards:
"It sounds like betrayal. It sounds like running. It sounds like fainting. It sounds like love. It sounds like... *gasp!*"
In an interview with Hot 97, Minaj explains her strong interest to collaborate with Remy Ma: the highly influential Bronx MC who had just finished an eight-year sentence for charges of assault, weapons possession and attempted coercion. "As soon as she get out, Rem holla at me," she said.

The idea of an all-female Ghostbusters 3 attracted both enthusiastic supporters and vehement detractors, but you can count Bill Murray in the former camp. “I would go to that movie,” the former Dr. Peter Venkman told press at TIFF this weekend.
In fact, not only is he into the idea, he also has some ideas about whom he’d like to cast.
Speaking to Access Hollywood’s Scott Mantz (via Schmoes Know), Murray sounded delighted at the thought of a female Ghostbusters.
It sounds great to me. It sounds as good an idea as any other! There are a lot of women that could scare off any kind of vapor! No, it’s a grand idea, I don’t know who they’re talking about, but it’s a good idea, I would watch it! I mean, I love Robert Palmer’s videos, so why wouldn’t I love the female Ghostbusters?
Murray even reiterated his stance in a separate chat with the Toronto Star. ”I would go to that movie, and they’d probably have better outfits, too,” he told the paper.
While no stars have been announced at this point, Murray had a few suggestions of his own. “Melissa would be a spectacular Ghostbuster. And Kristen Wiig is so funny — God, she’s funny!” he offered. “I like this girl Linda Cardellini a lot. And Emma Stone is funny. There are some funny girls out there.”
It’s no wonder Murray should support McCarthy for Ghostbusters 3, considering he was at TIFF to promote a film they’d starred in together — the dramedy St. Vincent. Besides, given how frequently she and Feig work together, she just seems like an obvious choice for a Feig-directed female Ghostbusters reboot.
For her part, McCarthy seems into the idea. “Oh, my God, that’s daunting,” she said of the prospect. “That’s taking on a legend, a legendary movie. But I would do anything with those ladies, anything at all.” However, it’s just wishful thinking at this point, as McCarthy also added that “nobody has talked to me about it.”
At least that’s more enthusiasm than Murray has managed to muster for the project. Murray has steadfastly refused to reprise his role for the film, and in a separate TIFF interview producer Ivan Reitman admitted that Murray probably wouldn’t be involved in the latest incarnation of the project, either.
“Every once in a while [Murray] would say, ‘it would be kind of nice to do another one if only I find a script that was good enough’, but in his brain and his heart, I don’t think it’s really there,” Reitman said.
Watch out for the Regina George in sheep's clothing...— KATY PERRY (@katyperry) September 9, 2014
Katheryn Perry tweeted this earlier tonight which might not make sense to the common pop observer but this is ONTD and we know our stuff! So as y'all know, earlier in the week Taylor Swift was whining yet again about a certain rival female singer who didn't respond to her cupcake baking invitation and also had the audacity to invite some of her dancers to come and dance in her own tour, thus "sabotaging" Taylor's tour (in Taylor's words of course). So has Katy turned the tables and exposed Taylor for what she really is or nah?
Also because this is an informative post, here is one of the dancers involved spilling some T on the situation back in December:
He left Tasmania for the US for what he thought would be a final concert with Perry to wrap up the Part of Me 3D movie and an audition to be a back-up dancer for Taylor Swift on her Red Tour. The audition scored him and two of Perry's other dancers a spot on the Red tour.
"I was with Taylor for the first six months", Brownlie said. "It was a great experience and she's a great person to work with, but then Katy contacted us".
Perry contacted her three former dancers to say she was releasing another album (Prism ) and wanted them to join her on a second world tour. Brownlie spent 10 months in 2011 touring with Perry for her California Dreams world tour.
"Obviously we were with Katy for 2 1/2 years, she's like family to us, so we were, like, ` absolutely," Brownlie said.
"We weren't really dancing in Taylor's tour anyway so I had gotten a little bored and I really wanted to do a promo tour."
Working with two different artist was interesting for Brownlie.
"The experiences were completely different," he said."Taylor is very untouchable".
"When we did see her, we had so much fun with her, but she's a lot more protected than Katy. Katy's 28 now and can do her own thing. Her team are so lovely, so we have such a good connection. And this time around she is a lot more in control."

Ed Sheeran pulls from his own life for song inspiration, which is why everyone was wondering who inspired the song about an ex cheating on him with a friend! Although it's rumored that "Don't" is about Niall Horan and Ellie Goulding, Ed has never confirmed or denied the gossip. However, in a new interview on Howard Stern's radio show, Ed hinted at some girl drama with one of the members of One Direction.
When asked whether "Don't" references one of the 1D guys, Ed initially refused to comment.
“The papers says a lot of things,” he said. “I have kept my mouth shut about a lot of things. I think if you add any fuel to any fire…I didn’t really come out of that situation upset. I just thought it was a bit disrespectful. I got over it as soon as the song was done and the song happened pretty soon after."
Ed says that he confronted his friend about the breach in bro code after it happened.
"It’s a difficult conversation to have," he said. "He was my mate, so I was just a bit like, ‘um not cool, but…’”
“That was the guy in One Direction, right?” Stern interrupted.
Ed denied that it was, but he then added, “Well, it depends which one you’re talking about."
While Ed is still being cryptic about the people who inspired his song, he basically admitted that he had some girl drama with at least one of the members of One Direction! We're pretty sure he's not talking about Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik, or Liam Payne — they all have steady girlfriends [lol] — so that leaves Harry Styles and Niall.
Since Ed referred to Harry as his "anchor" only a few months ago, it seems like their relationship has always been pretty stable. That definitely makes the Niall rumors more likely!
niall is such a shit friend, this is the second or third time he's cheated on someone that a friend of his was dating
Kylie Jenner appears to be spending an increasing amount of time with her rapper friend Tyga these days, with the pair spotted leaving a restaurant together on Sunday evening along with the reality star’s older sister Kendall Jenner, fuelling speculation about the nature of their friendship.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians sisters were seen leaving the Blue Ribbon Sushi restaurant yesterday hand-in-hand as they walked to their waiting car, with ‘Rack City’ rapper Tyga also heading into the same vehicle. Kylie, 17, was dressed to impress in a loose-fitting white t-shirt which she teamed with a pair of thigh-high boots, flashing her long legs. Model sister Kendall, 18, also looked gorgeous showing off her statuesque figure in a pair of leather fitted trousers and a white crop top, putting her taut stomach on show.
Tyga, 24, was seen getting into the back of the car alongside Kendall and seemed to be rather pleased with himself, no doubt after spending the evening with two stunning ladies. Following the trio’s dinner date, Kylie shared a cryptic message which will only fuel ongoing speculation that she and Tyga have a particularly close friendship, writing: “Try getting to know someone before making assumptions.”
Perhaps Tyga is trying to take his mind off his recent shocking split from fiancee Blac Chyna, whom he is alleged to have dumped last month, putting an end to their three-year relationship.
The couple appear to be co-parenting their son King Cairo, who is almost two, with the rapper recently sharing a photo of he and fellow rapper Wiz Khalifa hosting a play date with Cairo and Wiz and Amber’s son Sebastian, on Instagram. Kylie is thought to be single although she has been linked to BFF Jaden Smith on and off for a couple of years.
I get creep vibes from Tyga. Hopefully the two aren't dating because that's disturbing. I feel bad for Chyna the rumors must be embarrassing.
