Amber Heard: ‘Homophobic’ ‘Mysoginistic’ Cop … A Gay Woman
Amber Heard’s ex-girlfriend, who just claimed Amber’s 2009 arrest for domestic violence was bogus because the cop was a homophobe with a hint of misogyny … couldn’t be further off the mark, because the officer is an openly gay woman who also contributed money to a domestic violence organization. Amber’s ex-domestic partner, Tasya van Ree, minimized their altercation at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, saying it was “misinterpreted and over-sensationalized by two individuals in a powerful position.” She’s referring to the cops who arrested Amber for allegedly grabbing and hitting Tasya. Officer Beverly Leonard was the actual arresting officer. She proudly posted pics of herself and her partner a few years back. She’s also posted pics of herself at Pride weekend.
Bobby Brown admits to hitting Whitney
Bobby Brown has shared the gritty details of his destructive relationship with Whitney Houston in his upcoming memoir, “Every Little Step,” and with ABC’s Robin Roberts in a “20/20” interview that aired Tuesday night. Brown admits he did indeed strike Houston one time while he was “trying to maintain sobriety,” but ultimately says he’s “never been a violent man toward a woman ever.” He discusses the frequent drug use in their tumultuous relationship, too, and says he was using cocaine, crack-laced marijuana and alcohol. “The last few years of our marriage was terrible,” Brown said. “Both of us trying to be clean, or one of us trying to be clean … it was terrible.”
Ed Sheeran Sued For $20 Million For Allegedly Plagiarzing ‘Photograph’
We’re just thinking out loud here, but maybe Ed Sheeran should tread lightly when it comes to songwriting in the future. The English musician, who happens to be BFFs with Taylor Swift, is reportedly being sued for $20 million dollars over his song “Photograph,” according to Billboard.

Beyonce Sued: You Squeezed ‘Lemonade’ from MY Movie!
Beyonce bitching about Jay Z’s alleged affair wasn’t even her idea … according to a filmmaker who says Bey’s visual album copies a movie he made more than a year before “Lemonade” dropped.
Matthew Fulks is suing Beyonce and her record label, saying much of the “Lemonade” trailer completely rips off his 2014 short film, “Palinoia.” In the suit, he says his project also depicted a “tumultuous relationship.”
He says his beef is really over 39 seconds of the trailer, which have a slew of images similar to his movie. Specifically … characters in front of graffiti-covered walls, red tinted images, dimly lit parking garages and closeup shots of “overgrown grass.”

Richard Simmons denies transition rumors
Richard Simmons has secretly transitioned into a woman named “Fiona,” The National Enquirer is reporting — in a report that the former fitness guru’s publicist is denying as “Crap.” Simmons has widely been reported for the past two years as hiding out from fans in his Hollywood Hills mansion. But the real reason is not that he’s turned into a recluse — it’s because he has been taking hormones and consulting with doctors about “secret surgeries” to diminish his manhood and augment his breasts, the tabloid reports. “He’s changed into a woman!” the tabloid says, calling Simmons, 67, “The New Caitlyn Jenner” in its latest issue.

Martha Stewart refuses to watch ‘Orange Is the New Black’
It’s safe to say that Martha Stewart is not a fan of “Orange Is the New Black.” “I do not watch,” the ex-con said in a new interview with Chelsea Handler. Stewart was infamously convicted of insider trading in 2004 and served five months at Connecticut’s Danbury Federal Correctional Institution — the same prison the Netflix show’s Litchfield facility is based on. The domestic goddess won’t tune in because it’s “too close to home,” as Handler quipped. “It’s not as good as the real thing,” Stewart said on Handler’s Netflix talk show. “When you live through something like ‘Orange Is the New Black,’ the real characters are better.”
