Louis Tomlinson: THIS Was My Mother’s Dying Wish

In December of 2016, Louis Tomlinson was forced to say goodbye to his mother.

At the young age of 42, Johannah Deakin died of cancer.

In a statement at the time, the family said it was filled with “immeasurable sadness” as a result and “respectfully [requested] that the [they were] given time and space to grieve in private.”

A few months later, however, Tomlinson has spoken out about his late mother, talking to The Sun about one of the final things she said to him before passing away.

“My mum said, ‘You’ve got to get back in contact with Zayn. Life’s too f-cking short,'” Tomlinson told the British newspaper, adding:

“A mother’s intuition is just f-cking crazy. It always felt supernatural to me. My mum always knew what I was feeling and what I wanted.”

The artist, of course, is referring to Zayn Malik, his former colleague in One Direction who quit the boy band back in March of 2015.

Since that departure, Malik hasn’t exactly spoken positively about his time in One Direction, either, once slamming the quartet’s music as “generic.”

He and Tomlinson even got into a Twitter dispute shortly after Malik’s announcement, prior to the entire group taking a hiatus.

But that was then.

Now, Louis says he’s taken his mother’s pleas to heart and reconciled with his former friend and fellow singer.

“I can’t stand to hold a grudge with anyone. It doesn’t sit with me right,” Tomlinson told The Sun.

“If there is any animosity, just clear the air. I met up with him and it was nice.”

Describing Malik as “just a little misunderstood,” Tomlinson says he and Zayn were especially close just a few years ago.

He doesn’t think they’ll ever be besties again, but at least they are on solid terms now.

“I could always break the rules a little bit with Zayn,” he told The Sun this week.

“So after that whole thing, it was that brotherly love. We will always have that love for each other. I can’t speak on behalf of him but we really care about each other.”

As for how he’s holding up overall in the wake of his parent’s death?

“Throughout the time after my mum died I felt the support,” he told publication, adding:

“It stretched past the fan base. People did have my back, it was a really nice feeling…

“I’m thankful that my mum pushed everything onto me because I know I’m dealing with it really well.”

Kailyn Lowry: See Her Big Pregnancy Reveal on Teen Mom 2!

Kailyn Lowry is just about to pop.

Any day now — any second, really — she could give birth to her third child.

It's exciting, isn't it? It's always exciting when a Teen Mom becomes a mom again.

This pregnancy is a little more interesting though, what with all of the baby daddy drama.

The father, Chris Lopez, is widely reported to be out of the picture, and so for the first time, Kailyn may be raising a baby completely on her own.

And since she became pregnant while still married to Javi Marroquin (and since she allegedly got involved with Chris while Javi still thought their marriage had a chance), it's a little scandalous.

That's why, as you can see in this new Teen Mom 2 sneak peek, the pregnancy reveal wasn't exactly a happy moment.

In the clip, Kailyn is driving her oldest son, Isaac, over to Javi's house, because he asked to spend the night there.

Which, by the way, is incredibly sweet, and it says a lot about Javi that he's willing to take care of his ex-wife's child, just because they built such a strong bond while he was his stepfather.

Also incredibly sweet: Isaac seriously made a math worksheet for one of his classmates because she was having a hard time.

Kailyn takes Isaac in, hugs Lincoln, who's already there, and heads back out.

(You can spot a Christmas tree at the house, if you want a clue for the timeline here.)

When she gets back in the car and starts driving home, she takes a FaceTime call from a friend — because using FaceTime while driving sounds like the best plan.

"I have so much sh-t that I need to do tonight for tomorrow," she complains, "but I'm so f-cking overwhelmed and frustrated right now, like I'm so tired."

Her friend tells her "Dude, you're so pregnant."

Kailyn, instead of playing off the comment like a joke or dismissing it, immediately looks panicked, and she growls at her friend "I'm filming."

The subtext, of course, being "Shut up, stupid, I'm trying to hide this pregnancy for as long as possible and you just ruined it."

It's an extremely awkward moment, and you can see the wheels turning for Kailyn as she tries to figure out what to do next.

It should be fun to see how it all plays out on Monday's episode!

Until then, watch the sneak peek in the video below:

Jimmy Kimmel Gives Update on Infant Son After Heart Surgery

You’re going to want to hold onto something for this one, friends.

Some tissues, your cat, your butt … something.

Because you’re going to need some kind of support to deal with how cute this new update on Jimmy Kimmel’s baby boy is.

As you’ll surely remember, Jimmy opened up about his son in a heartbreaking speech he made on his talk show back in May.

The boy, Billy, was born on April 21st, and as he explained, “He appeared a normal, healthy baby.”

But then, about three hours later, he said that “A very attentive nurse at Cedars-Sinai heard a murmur in his heart and noticed he was a bit purple, which is not common.”

From there, the medical staff figured out that “he wasn’t getting enough oxygen in his blood, either in his heart or lungs.”

He said it was “a terrifying thing,” and we can certainly believe it.

Eventually, a heart surgeon came in to explain that little Billy was born with a congenital heart disease, one that had created “a hole in the wall of the left and right side of his heart.”

The poor little newborn had to have surgery to repair the holes, and he’ll eventually need another, but he’s expected to be just fine.

It was a tough story to hear, to say the least.

But now, Billy is three months old.

And in some new photos that Jimmy and his wife, Molly McNearney, shared on Twitter, he looks like a happy, healthy baby!

“Billy is 3 months old & doing great,” Jimmy wrote. “Thnx for the love & support.”

He also added a simple enough request to “Please remind your Congresspeople that every kid deserves the care he got.”

For Molly’s update, she wrote “Billy’s looking out for a lot of his buddies at Children’s Hospital. Remind your Congresspeople to protect them.”

First of all, Billy is just painfully adorable, isn’t he?

Seriously, just an insanely cute little baby.

And second of all, it’s not surprising that they’re pushing their followers to contact Congress about healthcare issues — in Jimmy’s monologue, he did the same thing.

Then, he pointed out that before Obama put his healthcare plan into place, “if you were born with a congenital heart disease like my son was, there’s a good chance you’d never be able to get health insurance because you had a pre-existing condition.”

“If your parents didn’t have medical insurance, you might not even live long enough to get denied because of your pre-existing condition.”

He insisted that “if your baby is going to die and it doesn’t have to, it shouldn’t matter how much money you make.”

“No parent should ever have to decide if they can afford to save their child’s life. It just shouldn’t happen. Not here.”

He’s not wrong.

It’s clear that Billy’s birth and the problems he experienced really inspired Jimmy, who’s always been outspoken about politics, even before, to use his voice to urge others to stand up for what’s right.

And seeing Billy’s precious little face, it’s easy to understand why he feels so moved.

Fancy Feet in Distress: Chris Brown Is Suing A Promoter In The Philippines Over Alleged Extortion

Chris Brown Is Suing A Promoter For Extortion

Back at it again with the shenanigans and legal issues. Chris Brown’s latest lawsuit is against a promoter in the Philippines, who Chris claims tried to extort him out of $ 300,000.

The alleged incident happened all the way back in 2014, when C Breezy was supposed to perform for a New Year’s Eve show. The show had to be rescheduled because of passport issues, and the new performances was set for July of 2015. Here’s where things get strange: when Brown tried to exit his hotel, he was met by armed men who were blocking his every move. Chris was told by the lawyer for the arena that he would be arrested if he didn’t pay Jose Victor Los Banos Biongco $ 300,000.

These scammers were no match for Christopher Maurice, and he called up an immigration lawyer right away. Eventually, the immigration lawyer got him out of the country without having to dish out $ 300K–all’s well that ends well. Well, not really. Because Chris is now suing the man for his “emotional distress” following the incident.

Let us know how works out for you, Breezy.

Scotty McCreery: American Idol Star Takes Loaded Gun to Airport!

Isn’t it such a delight to see good ol’ Scotty McCreery in the news again?

As hard as it may be to believe, it’s been six years since Scotty won his season of American Idol with his super deep, super country voice.

Since then, he’s been big in the country music scene — really big, in certain circles.

And good for him, right?

But while Scotty has always been adorable, the circumstances of this new story about him aren’t exactly the best.

And that’s because the story is about how Scotty actually brought a loaded gun into an airport.

It’s more than a little shocking, because literally everyone has enough sense to know that this is a terrible, dangerous move, and those who do it anyway usually have the worst intentions.

But it seems like Scotty really just made an honest mistake.

On July 13th, he went to Raleigh-Durham International Airport, and while he was going through security, it was discovered that he was carrying a 9mm handgun and ammunition in his backpack.

He did have a permit to carry a concealed weapon, but still … what he did wasn’t exactly legal.

He was cited with a misdemeanor, the gun was taken, and he was allowed to board his flight.

So what happened?!

As Scotty explained in a statement to a local news station, “I have been a concealed carry permit holder for a while now after being robbed at gunpoint in 2014, and I take gun safety very seriously.”

We’re sure he does — the robbery he’s referring to hear sounded terrifying.

As he said, in 2014, he was robbed at gunpoint when a group of men broke into his Raleigh home, forced him and his roommates to lie face-down on the ground, and proceeded to steal cash and electronics.

It’s understandable that he’d want to get a permit to carry a gun of his own after such an ordeal, and it’s also easy to believe that he’d be extremely careful with it.

“While in between tour dates last week,” Scotty continued, “I went to go target shooting with a friend a few days before an early flight out of my hometown Raleigh-Durham airport.”

“Unfortunately, I did not realize that I left my pistol in my backback until the TSA found it during the security X-ray screening and rightfully confiscated it.”

“I had my concealed carry permit on me,” he added, “so once they had checked everything out, they then released me to catch the next available flight.”

“Great to know our airport security force is on the job. I have learned a lesson that I won’t forget.”

We imagine that’s a pretty big understatement.

Jada Pinkett-Smith Addresses Rumor that She and Will Smith Are Swingers!

Everybody's been subject to rumors at one point or another, but the ones about celebrities tend to be the most outlandish.

Secret societies and cult rituals! Cloning factories! You name it.

But even so, when a Watch What Happens Live caller asked Jada Pinkett-Smith to address the "craziest" rumor about her … we didn't quite expect this reply, which you can see in the video below!

Will smith and jada pinkett smith red carpet pic

Jada laughs with Andy Cohen and mulls it over for a moment.

"The craziest rumor? That Will and I are swingers."

(Swingers, of course, are couples who meet with other couples and exchange sex partners)

We were a little surprised at that answer, but Jada certainly seems amused.

(And we guess that it would somehow fit with the rumor that Jada Pinkett-Smith and Will Smith are both gay … somehow)

And she says that, even though she and Will have been together for ages, that rumor still somehow follows them.

"That's the craziest one. … It’s constant."

As to her general response to the rumor?

"And I’m like, 'Yo, I wish!'"

For the record, being a swinger isn't something that you're born with.

If Jada and Will wanted to be swingers, they could be.

Jada pinkett smith and will smith 2nd annual diamond ball

Jada Pinkett-Smith also responds to Andy Cohen's next question, replying that she and Will have been together for 23 years.

That would be a long-ass time for a regular, non-celebrity couple to be married.

The average length of a marriage that ends in divorce is 8 years.

The Smiths have been together for almost three marriages, basically.

Jada Pinkett-Smith has laughed off divorce rumors in the past, quashing them before they can pick up steam.

And they've also managed to basically avoid aging during that time.

The smiths at the oscars

Jada addressed how they'd managed to remain a couple for so long.

"I really think that Will and I just have amazing chemistry on a lot of different levels."

That's always good, of course.

"We love to laugh together, we love to learn together, and we just love each other."

That's so cute!

"We just have a good time together."

Good — if you need to escape from your spouse to have a good time, you're doing it wrong.

(Though you should still, you know, be an individual who can go out and have fun)

"Yeah, I guess that’s the secret. Yeah, we just really like each other!"

It's funny, because a running joke among LGBT folks on social media is that straight couples don't seem to like each other.

Married straight people often joke about their husbands being lazy or their wives nagging or call their spouse "the old ball and chain."

Since many LGBT people had to campaign for years or decades for the simple right to marry their partner, it seemed perplexing to see couples who'd always had that right act resentful, as if they'd been paired up against their will.

It looks like Jada and Will just discovered one of the big "secrets" to happy same-sex marriages: actually liking your spouse.

Will and jada smith

The swinging is an entertaining story.

But we wonder if it's a deflection.

When we think of rumors about the Smiths, we think of the rumor that they're both Scientologists.

They've denied it, but it's interesting that Jada doesn't bring it up here.

Anyway, see her reaction below in this video:

Trans Icon Amanda Lepore Details Exactly What Happened Between Her And Kanye A Mystery Rapper

Amanda Lepore Details Affair With Mystery Rapper

The internets are aflame with debates over whether or not Kanye really knocked down transgender celeb Amanda Lepore before he finally settled down with Kim.

As you know, Amanda made claims that she hooked up with a “good looking black” rapper with a popular song getting blasted in all the clubs, years before he married a woman with a “similar body type” to her own. Mind you, the 49-year-old transgender icon is a very voluptuous and curvy woman…

Now, Radar has revealed more details about Amanda’s rapper tryst through an exclusive excerpt from her upcoming book, Doll Parts. Apparently, Amanda wasn’t even sure who the rapper in question was before dropping to her knees for him in a San Fransico gym, but she knew it was someone she was supposed to know:

On page 179 of her book, the trans star recalls she was on the treadmill when a “good-looking black guy walked in.”

“I didn’t get a good look, but he seemed familiar and I could tell he was looking at me. I assumed he’d seen me on The Insider, but I was focusing on getting to four hundred calories, so I didn’t pay him much attention.

He came up to me and said hi, and I said hi back, then he started trying to talk me up, and asked if I wanted to go up to his room. I said, ‘Well I have to burn these 400 calories before I get off,’ and kept on climbing.”

Amanda says he wasn’t giving up that easily, and even offered to get rid of the other woman he had waiting for him upstairs just to have a chance to get closer to her

‘I got a girl up in my room but I can get rid of her if you want to come up.’

It occurred to me that if this guy was so confident, he might have a really big d**k, which was exactly what I needed to move on from the ex-boyfriend. So I told him to hold on a minute.

I finished my workout, then I walked into the gym’s cleaning room, and he followed me in. I took out his c**k and got on my knees.

While I was sucking his d**k, he kept saying to me, ‘Do you know whose dick you’re sucking?’ I didn’t know how to answer that because I really didn’t, but I was smart enough to realize I was supposed to. But then I looked up at him and noticed his chin was a little weird, and I knew I’d seen him before, and then I realized that yes, I did know whose d**k I was sucking. He was a very famous rapper, they were playing his new song in the clubs constantly.

I never saw him again after that, but when he got married I couldn’t help but think that his wife had a similar body type to me.”

Now, Radar is claiming that one of Amanda’s buddies has confirmed that she’s definitely talking about Kanye…but nothing in the words here indicate that. We’ve also heard speculation that the rapper in question could be Ice T, or even Wiz Khalifa.

Amanda mentions that the rapper in question may have recognized her from her appearance on The Insider — which she appeared on back in 2006. So if you’re playing the speculation game, that may help narrow things down for you…

Now that you have more detail, what do you think? Is this ‘Ye or are eager folks just running with it?
