Kim Kardashian has one less legal headache to worry about after apparently striking a settlement with SnapLight over illuminated phone cases. SnapLight and Kim’s company — Kimsaprincess, Inc. — filed docs to have the lawsuit tossed out of court.…
Some of our readers might not be old enough to remember a time when Blink-182 was the biggest thing in music, but Kourtney Kardashian certainly is, and it seems that like generations of Hot Topic shoppers before her, she has a thing for the drummer.
Yes, according to Radar Online Travis Barker is banging more than just his snare these days.
That’s our way of saying he’s having sex with Kourtney … or hoping to, anyway.
“Travis lives a couple of blocks from Kourt in the same gated community in Calabasas and their kids play together,” a source close to the situation tells Radar.
“He’s always had a bit of a thing for her.”
It seems Travis was intent on swooping in after learning that Kourtney had dumped Scott Disick for good.
After receiving word that Kourtney was dating Younes Bendjima, however, he reportedly felt that he’d “missed his chance.”
Now, however, another window of opportunity has presented itself.
And apparently, Travis has every intention of taking advantage.
Though she hasn’t made any sort of formal announcement, it looks as though Kourtney has broken up with Younes.
She recently unfollowed him on Instagram, and when fans noticed the move, she deleted her account entirely.
These days, she’s back on the ‘Gram, but tellingly, she has not re-followed Younes.
Sensing a second chance, Travis has apparently already devised a strategy.
And it seems that step one is showing Kourt that he’s more than just a drummer.
“He wants to take her for dinner at his Crossroads restaurant and wow her with all his favorite vegan dishes,” says the source.
It’s a simple, but calculated plan.
Kourtney’s last two exes are 24-year-old Younes and Scott, who has the mental age of roughly 14.
Travis is 42.
He’s built a successful career for himself as a musician, music producer, reality star, and restaurateur.
If it weren’t for Kourtney, Scott would probably be selling his plasma for pints of Thunderbird, and the resulting power imbalance always led to trouble in their relationship.
She would have no such problem with Travis, and it seems he wants her to know that.
The two of them certainly have potential as a couple.
Hopefully, Travis is on board with entering a situation where he’ll likely have to deal with a very drunk and very clingy ex.
The countdown isn’t just on, folks.
The countdown is here to turn you on.
Isn’t that right, Khloe Kardashian?
The reality star is reportedly mere weeks away from giving birth for the first time, officially hunkered down in Cleveland and waiting for her life to change forever.
But while she wonders just when her daughter will arrive, Khloe isn’t just sitting around and doing nothing.
She’s taking off her clothing and showing off her baby bump!
Indeed, Kardashian has shared a number of new pictures on her Instagram page, the most notable of which we’ve published below.
Be warned, however: this isn’t your typical baby bump photo.
This one depicts A LOT of skin across Khloe’s entire body because she’s wearing nothing but lace lingerie…
Kardashian did not include a caption with the sizzling snapshot, simply tagging photographer Sasha Samsonova alongside the image and letting her figure speak for itself.
The mother-to-be recently shared a number of tips for looking skinny as f-ck in photos, but those tips clearly do not apply to her in this case.
There’s no way to hide that growing bump! Nor should Khloe want to! There’s a baby girl inside!
Khloe revealed on the season finale of Keeping Up with the Kardashians (below) that she’s having a daughter.
We don’t know what her name will be, however, nor do we know her the child’s exact due date.
We do know, however, that Kardashian is excited for motherhood, as she recently Tweeted:
“I am now so excited my daughter will have forever best friends with Chicago and Stormi!! God is great!!! Thank you Lord for our princess.”
The star, of course, is referencing nieces Chicago (courtest of Kim Kardashian) and Stormi (courtesy of Kylie Jenner) in this message.
One thing she has not discussed throughout her pregnancy journey, however, has been marriage.
Most outlets have claimed for awhile now that she and Tristan Thompson have no immediate plans to tie the knot.
But might this no longer be the case?
According to Life & Style, Kardashian and Thompson are actually planning a lavish wedding.
“The whole thing will cost about $ 2 million,” says an insider, who somehow knows that Khloe will wear a Lorraine Schwartz diamond wedding band and that famous party planner Mindy Weiss will be hired to map out the event.
Weiss has planned weddings for such huge name as Ellen DeGeneres and Sofia Vergara.
“Khloe is ready to go all-out,” this magazine alleges. “She and Mindy are already going over mood boards and talking about Khloe’s vision.”
Look for the nuptials to take place in Bel Air in the summer of 2019 and for about 150 people to be invited, this report claims.
It also claims to know that Kardashian will wear a short wedding dress that isn’t anything like the gown she wore back when she married Lamar Odom.
“She wants it to show off her post-baby body. It will be incredible,” writes Life & Style.
None of this really sounds at all like the Khloe Kardashian we’ve grown to know over the years…
… but if an anonymous source says as much to a weekly supermarket tabloid, it must be true, right?
It sounds like Sofia Richie is getting on Kourtney’s last nerve.
First, Sofia stole Kourtney’s look. Now, it looks like she’s trying to replace her by “playing stepmom” with Scott.
A report says that Kourtney has personally contacted Sofia to tell her to back off and keep away from her children.
HollywoodLife reports that, as a source has divulged to them, Kourtney has warned Sofia away from her kids.
“Kourtney worries that Sofia is not a good role model for her children.”
Children might be naturally drawn to admire a gorgeous 19-year-old model who happens to be dating their father, but Kourtney doesn’t feel that it’s appropriate.
What’s more, it sounds like Scott has been ignoring her on this issue … which has reportedly led Kourtney to reach out to Sofia directly.
“And because Scott refuses to listen to Kourtney‘s requests [about keeping her away from the kids], Kourt has reached out to Sofia personally and told her to back off from spending so much time with them.”
That had to sound hurtful.
The mother of three apparently believes that she has good reason for keeping her kids away from Sofia whenever possible.
For one thing, she’s worried that they’ll get their hearts broken.
“Kourtney does not believe Sofia and Scott will stay together long-term and so she asked Sofia to respectfully back off from spending so much time with her children.”
Children are adaptable, but they can grow attached … and then take things very personally when their parent breaks up with a new partner.
Kind of like how dogs panic when you go out to dinner and leave them at home for a couple of hours, because they’re just beginning to grasp time.
“Kourtney does not like the influence Sofia has over the kids and she does not want the kids getting attached to someone that Kourtney feels will not be around or a part of their lives for very long.”
But apparently, Kourt also has some more personal issues with Sofia.
It seems that a big issue is that Kourtney perceives Sofia, who is 19 years old, as being immature.
“Kourtney is furious that Sofia is playing stepmom with Scott and the kids.”
Oh! One can imagine how Kourtney wouldn’t take ,kindly to that.
“Kourtney finds it super inappropriate that someone as young and immature as Sofia, is spending so much time with her children the way that she does with Scott.”
Sometimes, your kids get a step-parent. But this is her ex’s girlfriend, and she’s a teenager. It’s a little different.
“It infuriates Kourtney who works hard teaching her kids healthy habits and Kourtney fears her kids will learn harmful ways from Sofia.”
We’re not super sure what about Sofia is harmful. Except that she has been spotted allegedly smoking cigarettes … a very unhealthy habit that is thankfully dying off.
That’s not something that you want to see your children emulate.
“It has been a struggle over the years for Kourtney to be comfortable enough leaving Scott alone with the kids, but sending them off with Sofia too, [whom] she doesn’t trust at all, creates lots of stress and anxiety for Kourtney.”
It’s natural for a mother to worry about the welfare of her precious children.
“Kourtney has been adamant that it is not OK for Scott, to be dating a Sofia, a teenager who is 15 years younger than he is, much less let her be around their young, impressionable children.”
Some might accuse Kourtney of hypocrisy.
Her boyfriend Younes spends plenty of time around her, is also young, and has even gone so far as to throw shade at Scott Disick. (Most people have, at some point or another)
Scott probably figures that what’s good for the goose is good for the gander.
But there are some major differences. For starters, Kourtney started dating Younes — she didn’t bang a bunch of other young, hot models as if she were trying on shoes before settling on him.
Also, Younes may be young, but he’s not a teenager.
Finally, Kourtney is very careful about setting boundaries for her family, and she’s always made it clear that her children come first.
Sweet baby Chicago West is just over 2 months old.
Though the world has gotten glimpses of this adorable, “royal” offspring, we’ve only gotten glimpses of her. Until now.
Kim Kardashian has shared the first full photo of this adorable little princess. Take a look!
Back in January, Kim and Kanye welcomed their baby girl, who was born via gestational carrier.
Though she was born on January 15th, it took days before the public even learned her name. Kim Kardashian is famous for slowly rolling out new information about her children.
It’s part of striking a balance between her child’s privacy and realistic expectations of her fans. Also, always leaving fans wanting more can’t be hurting her brand.
Baby sister Kylie has been following that model with adorable little Stormi. And there’s a decent chance that Khloe will do the same.
Now, for the first time, we’re getting a real, full portrait of this unbearable adorable baby.
Take a look!
Hello there, Chicago!
Kim, of course, gets to see this overwhelmingly sweet little face every single day.
But for fans, looking at this oxytocin-inducing little bundle of love is a treat.
And, really, it’s a first.
In the past, we’ve seen Chicago’s face through Snapcaht filters, and we’ve seen her cheeks as a newborn in Kylie’s pregnancy video.
Neither of those are the same as seeing Chicago full-on and unfiltered.
Though we’re sure that Kim Kardashian is a great mother to North, Saint, and Chicago, some have been critical of her parenting.
Sometimes, there are just ridiculous claims — like people questioning if Kim Kardashian is neglecting baby Chicago because … get this … she’s on social media a lot.
Kim is a reality star who built her brand on social media. The only thing that’s “different” with Chicago versus with Saint and North is that Kim isn’t having to recover from pregnancy and childbirth.
And that’s the crux of why people think that she doesn’t love Chicago the same way that she loves her other kids. Some people have embraced absurd stigma against gestational carriers (and surrogates), and think that a mother who really loved her children would birth them herself.
That’s not only awful, it’s dangerous. Kim loves her children and herself enough to want to be alive to be their mother. Giving birth herself would have put her life at risk.
Some criticisms of her parenting, however, may be a little less absurd.
Recently, Kim shared a topless photo that was taken by North herself.
There were those who question whether it’s appropriate to let your child take thirst trap photos … least of all pictures in which their own mother is topless.
This may come down to cultural differences between families, however. For some families, it’s normal for a father to spend time around the house shirtless, while others would be shocked to see that.
In some families, parents and children kiss each other on the mouth. Others would basically rather die.
Then, of course, came Kim’s statement that her husband deserves as much attention as her children.
Since any parent’s first obligation is to their children, that line could be interpreted as Kim prioritizing Kanye over her kids.
But … maybe she was just offering marital advice. We can’t imagine Kim neglecting her children.
Kim clearly cares about her children.
Reportedly, she doesn’t want anyone else to tell Chicago about her surrogacy — because she wants to be the one to explain to her little girl how she was born and why.
That sounds fair.
Besides, if a bunch of people talk to Chicago about where she gestated, this sweet little girl might grow up thinking that it somehow marks her as different.
Kim wants to avoid that.
We can’t wait until we see more of her adorable little baby.
Sofia Richie wasn’t even born when the movie Single White Female hit theaters, but she’s being accused taking a page from the cult classic’s screenplay.
According to an anonymous insider, Kourtney Kardashian believes Sofia is stealing her identity – and not in the ruined credit score way your grandmother is always worried about.
As you’re likely aware, Sofia is dating Scott Disick for reasons that defy explanation.
Lately, there have been rumors of the unlikely couple drifting apart, and it seems Sofia might be taking a very unorthodox approach to repairing her relationship.
“Kourtney is definitely more than a little creeped out by how Sofia appears to be stealing her look,” a source tells Hollywood Life.
“But, it also makes her sad because she realizes how young and impressionable Sofia is.”
Yes, Kourtney believes Sofia is slowly transforming into a Kardashian.
It’s a phenomenon we’ve seen before, most notably when Kylie Jenner morphed into Kim Kardashian.
But that was a case of a girl idolizing her famous half-sister.
Sofia is apparently trying to look more like her boyfriend’s baby mama.
We can’t imagine what would inspire her to make such a move, but apparently Kourtney can.
She’s convinced that Sofia didn’t make a conscious decision to affect a more Kourtney-like appearance, but was instead manipulated by Scott.
“Kourtney thinks she’s probably being controlled, or at the very least, manipulated, by Scott,” says the insider.
“Some people might find it flattering, but Kourtney just thinks it’s gross, and that Scott needs to grow up, move on, and start living his life as an independent adult for once.”
Apparently, Kourtney has even gone so far as to address the matter with Scott, who proceeded to gaslight her like the textbook d-bag that he is.
“[Kourtney] makes comments about it to Scott, and he just laughs it off and tries to flip it on her,” the insider claims.
“He calls her a narcissist and acts like she’s crazy for mentioning it, which is so frustrating for Kourtney. But, also so typical of Scott.”
Interacting with Scott DIsick can be frustrating?!
Well, now we’ve heard everything!
We’re sure it’s an intensely creepy scenario for Kourtney, but at least she gets to play the Regina George card:
“As far as Kourtney is concerned, this whole bizarre situation is just more proof that Scott and his girlfriend are obsessed with her.”
Sounds more like Scott is obsessed with you, Kourtney, but whatever the case, you’re right to be freaked out.
Rob Kardashian has been laying low recently, and for good reason.
After all, things haven’t been going super well for him lately.
Or for the past several years, for that matter.
He obviously loves his daughter very much, and he probably had like three or four good days during his relationship with Blac Chyna, but besides that, it seems like he’s been in a really dark place for a really dark time.
He had that extremely messy, allegedly abusive relationship with Chyna that ended in flames, he released those nude photos of her that’s gotten him into a heap of legal trouble.
Chyna’s claimed in court documents that he was violent towards her, and that he would threaten suicide to manipulate her, which, you know, isn’t great.
On top of all that, his health has been an issue for the past few years now, and in multiple ways: remember when his family was begging him to go to rehab?
Rob’s also struggled with his weight for a long time, and that’s leading into what we’re going to be talking about today.
See, yesterday was his birthday — he’s 31 now.
To celebrate, Kris Jenner threw a party at her house. Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe were there, though it looks like Kendall and Kylie were on vacation.
Kim and Kourtney brought their kids as well, and little Dream was in attendance!
We know that because Kim shared this picture in her Instagram stories — and look how great Rob looks:
It’s clear that he’s been losing quite a bit of weight, right?
He posted Kim’s photo on his Twitter account, and his followers all agreed that he’s looking good here.
“Dream is just beaut and don’t get me started on Rob,” one person wrote. “He looks so good I’m so happy for him.”
“Wow the weight loss!!” another commented. “Keep going you’ve got this!”
Referencing one of the most iconic Kardashian moments, another of his followers told him “YAS DADDY ROB UR DOING AMAZING SWEETIE.”
And it’s not just that he’s lost weight, but he also looks genuinely happy here, which is rare to see these days.
Oh, and since it was his birthday, you know his family took some time to leave some sweet comments about him on their social media accounts!
“Happy birthday to my brother Rob!!!” Kim wrote. “I love you so much and wish you all of the happiness in the world! I love raising our kids together, you’re the best dad and friend! Can’t wait to celebrate today!!”
In a post of her own, Khloe said “Happy birthday Rob!!! This year is YOURS! I can’t wait to see all you conquer! Seeing you as a father has been so rewarding!”
“You’re an incredible father, brother, and friend!” she added. “I can’t wait to raise our daughters together! I love you Bob.”
Meanwhile, Kris told him that he’s “the most wonderful son a mom could ever ask for and I thank God for you every day!”
“It brings me so much joy to see the incredible father you have become. I am so proud of you!!”
Blac Chyna even set aside her issues with Rob to wish him a happy birthday — she shared this old photo of them with Dream to do so:
It’s nice that he seems to have so much support in his life, and especially that he and Chyna seem to be on decent terms, despite everything.
Hopefully this means that he’s finally on the way to getting better, for good this time, mentally as well as physically.
Happy birthday, Rob.
Kim Kardashian’s finally introduced the world to Chicago West … WITHOUT any added social media filters. Kim and Kanye’s baby is just a couple days older than 2 months, but this is the first time she’s been seen in her natural state — no mouse…
Image is everything.
So tennis great Andre Agassi used to tell television viewers in commercials for Canon cameras.
But this is a tagline that could easily be adopted by Kim Kardashian, someone who has dedicated most of her public persona to looking her absolute best at all times.
This has been the case for nearly all of Kim’s life in the spotlight…
… and it will apparently be the case when Kim is close to the end of her life.
Allow us to explain:
In a video she recorded with ELLE Magazine this week, the former sex tape actress explains to fans that she has inserted an unusual clause into her will.
It doesn’t have to do with where her possessions go after Kim dies, but ratehr how her hair and makeup are done while she’s still alive.
Says Kardashian in the footage:
“I made a section [in my will] that if I am so out of it that I can’t even communicate – and I am like shitting on myself – I definitely need my hair, my nails and my makeup done.”
We’re pretty sure she was being serious.
In one sense, this is perfectly logical.
Of course someone who even gets all dolled up while topless and eating noodles would want to maintain her appearance at all times, despite her health.
In another sense, however, this is pretty sad.
Poor Kim thinks so much about how fans view her, and has so much stock in her outer beauty, that she can’t imagine a day when she simply doesn’t care.
She can’t imagine still being able to draw a breath without considering whether her nail color matches her eye shadow.
Really, that’s no way to live, is it?
In the aforementioned ELLE video, the 37-year old mother of three reads and confirms headlines from various publications prior to addressing the grooming clause in her last will and testament.
“I want to look as good as possible,” she says simply, adding that nothing will stop her from posting “racy photos.”
And, hey, look, we’re all for Kim Kardashian nude photos.
Keep ‘em coming, K-Squared!
The point here is not that we want to see Kardashian wearing many layers of clothing in her social media photos.
The point is simply that one should never be this concerned with one’s image.
Agassi made the motto we cited above famous early on in his career, back when he wore neon colors on the court and had long, shaggy, sexy hair.
Eventually, however, he grew up and matured and focused on tennis above all else, enjoying a second act to his career that included many Grand Slam titles and universal respect.
He stopped caring about how he came across to others and cared only about succeeding in his job and satisfying those close to him with his play and his attitude.
Will Kim ever reach the same level of maturity and perspective?
That, dear readers, is the question.
This time, she isn’t accused of stealing culture from black people and claiming it as her own.
No — her latest photo and caption are seeing her accused of appropriating and fetishizing Japanese culture.
Cultural appropriation might not carry the obvious hateful intent of, say, blackface or a physical attack against a minority, but appropriation is part of the complex social forces that keep minorities marginalized.
But … is Kim’s photo in which she poses with a geisha an example of appropriation … or is it just appreciation?
Take a look at this picture and decide for yourself.
Kim decided to share a snap from her recent trip to Japan. Fans can clearly see that Kim is pushing out her lips for the camera while seeming to apply makeup to a geisha’s cheek.
Kim Kardashian captioned this photo: “A dream come true.”
While not all responses were negative, some immediate comments accused Kim of cultural appropriation.
“HOW ARE U SO PROBLEMATIC?”
That all-caps comment shows how frustrated some fans can be when their favorite celebrities say or do things that disappoint them.
(It’s worth noting that Kim’s fans find what they see as racial insensitivity particularly troubling, because Kim’s three children are black)
Some, at least, made jokes about it.
“Kim posing with the next culture she’s about to appropriate. [Just kidding], love you Kim.”
Other fans rose to Kim’s defense.
“Lmao people saying cultural appropriation. Get educated. Kim you’re doing great sweetie.”
And it never hurts to ask questions, as one fan did, wanting to see if Kim was crossing any boundaries.
“Is this cultural appropriation? Actual question. Is she wrong for this? I feel like she might be but I’m not sure bc it’s not my culture. Any ideas?”
It was another fan who offered an answer with a very nuanced reply.
“Not really. What culture is she appropriating? None … stop lighting fires. People are allowed to protect their cultures from appropriation too [by the way] without an eye roll.”
It’s important to note that Japan’s relationship with the West is not the same as that which black people have endured.
For example, while a white American wearing culturally sensitive clothing of a Native American (such as a war bonnet) would be pretty horrifying, Japan as a rule has no issue with outsiders wearing, say, a kimono.
In the 16th Century, Japanese imperial regent Toyotomi Hideyoshi cracked down on European influences, both cultural and political, having seen what the Spanish had done in the Philippines and not wanting to see that repeated in Japan.
As a result, Japan has only very recently begun to see their culture emulated and fetishized by others on any broad scale, and they tend to view that differently because they did not endure centuries of enslavement by European or American powers.
At the same time, Americans of Japanese decent are a minority group and often view white peers claiming Japanese culture in a very different light. Especially when they face racism for being perceived to “act Asian” (or not “act Asian”).
So, like everything regarding the social construct that is race, this is a complicated topic.
I’m by no means Japanese and would never claim to have the authority to decide whether or not this is appropriation.
But both my initial reaction and my conclusion after a lot of careful thought is that Kim is just practicing cultural appreciation.
If Kim starts up obnoxious antics that reduces Japan to a stereotype in the douchiest way possible, like in this photo of Logan Paul in Japan, that would be a very different matter.
The photo just shows Kim consensually applying makeup to a geisha’s face. She’s not pretending to be one on a magazine cover or claiming geishas as part of her brand.
This looks like appreciation. Just because Kim can be problematic at times doesn’t mean that there aren’t false alarms.
