Now is Most Definitely Not the Time

Honestly, if you want to keep up with all the news coming out in the aftermath of the shooting, there are better places to do that. But if you want to hear about LeAnn Rimes and her absolutely offensive, completely inappropriate message about what happened, we’ve got you covered. If you look at the photo alone, it’s a beautiful message. We really do think LeAnn is being sincere about this, but take a look at her caption — she says these are lyrics she wrote a few months ago, and “I can’t wait to share more of the song with you all soon enough.” A few hours later, she announced that she got a new record deal and is set to release a new album this year. It just seems like LeAnn is trying to capitalize on the tragedy, and that’s disgusting. Now is not the time to talk about songs you wrote that will be on album’s you’ll release. If she wanted to touch on the topic, she could have shared the photo all by itself, but then how would we know about what’s going on with LeAnn?

This atrocity would not go unanswered under President Trump I promise!”

Maybe Amber Rose And Kim Kardashian Aren’t Good After All

Just a few months after Amber Rose and Kim Kardashian engaged in peace talks seemingly to put their years-long feud behind them, a new fight may be on the horizon. In an interview with the New York Daily News about her new self-titled talk show, Rose spoke about causing a social media sh*tstorm with the Kardashians, Kanye West and Rose’s ex-husband, Wiz Khalifa, earlier this year. Though the SlutWalk organizer didn’t call out any member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan in particular, she did make sure to point out the source of their fame. “The only reason these girls have a career is because their older sister had a little fun on tape,” Rose said. We having a feeling these comments aren’t going to go over well, particularly with Kim.

Amber Heard to Johnny Depp: Money’s NO Factor … Just Stay Away

Amber Heard doesn’t want Johnny Depp or anyone else thinking her domestic violence allegation is a play for his money — and she’s making that clear in court docs.
Amber’s lawyer just filed a declaration saying she’s withdrawing her request for temporary spousal support. The spousal support issue would have been handled during Friday’s restraining order hearing … but she’s now taken that off the table. Amber says she only asked for it because she thought it was standard operating procedure in a divorce case, but now feels Depp’s team is twisting it in the media. In the docs, she says it’s being “used against me to distract and divert the public away from the very serious real issue of domestic violence.”

‘Wolf of Wall Street’ Broker: Hey Leo, Quit Dodging My Lawyers

Leonardo DiCaprio’s too busy jet-setting around the world to sit for a deposition … at least according to the guy suing Martin Scorsese and Paramount for his portrayal in “The Wolf of Wall Street,” — and now he wants a judge to tell Leo he’s gotta show up to get grilled. According to legal docs, Andrew Greene, an ex-business partner of Jordan Belfort — the real ‘Wolf’ — says he’ll fly to L.A. to meet with Leo if that’s what the actor needs. Andrew’s suing for $25 million after claiming the movie destroyed his rep. He wants the court to take up the matter when the two sides meet Thursday.
