XXXTentacion’s legion of fans might be shocked by the baby news his mom dropped, but it wouldn’t have been a surprise to him — he knew weeks ago. Sources close to the rapper tell TMZ … X’s girlfriend — whom he’d been dating for months — is the…
When Kylie Jenner got impregnated by Travis Scott last year, many folks around the Internet were surprised.
She was only 20 years old, after all. She was unmarried. She and Scott had been dating for mere months.
There was no way this development had been planned, right?
No, Kylie has basically admitted after welcoming daughter Stormi Webster in February, this pregnancy was not planned.
Which doesn’t mean she doesn’t still love her kid a lot, of course.
However, while Jenner hadn’t thought out what might happen if she had unprotected sex with her boyfriend, Kim Kardashian admitted on Monday that she totally predicted her half-sister would be a young mother.
Not this young, mind you, but still…
“We used to say, ‘Season 17, Kylie has a baby,'” Kim joked to The Business of Fashion founder Imran Amed yesterday during a Business of Fashion West panel, adding:
“And we all looked at each other and [were] like, ‘Oh sh-t! That just happened.'”
Indeed, it really just did.
Kim was joined on stage during this panel discussion by her mother, Kris Jenner.
When asked how long Keeping Up with the Kardashians will run, the famous manager teased:
“It’s going to be here forever!”
She then quipped that Kim’s five-year-old daughter North West is going to get married in a future season.
It was clearly said with tongue firmly planted in cheek, but that’s still an odd thing to crack about, isn’t it? Basically marrying off your grandchild for the sake of future reality show ratings?
Earlier this month, E! released a sneak peek of Season 15, although the network has not yet announced a premiere date.
Here is said sneak peek:
Kris previewed a “major blowout” to come on these new episodes, while Kim hinted that it would center around Kourtney Kardashian.
“When I think about it, I do get really mad,” Kim said of this fight. “It’s basically just like people being disrespectful. It’s the one thing that really gets me.”
She then mysteriously added: “Talk about Kourtney behaving like that.”
Kim and Kris, meanwhile, attended the MTV Movie & TV Awards, which aired on Monday evening and which found them accepting a trophy for Favorite Reality Show.
After all these years, the family has still got it, somehow.
But the family also receives its fair share of backlash.
How does Kim and company deal with all the negativity out there?
“I think that the way my family and I have always dealt with everything is we know we have each other. Nothing else really matters,” the she replied, concluding:
“So at the end of the day, this could all go away and we all have each other and we’re confident in that. So, we’re always going to be who we are.
And if one of us is fighting with, you know, a boyfriend or an ex, or whatever the examples you were giving, I mean, we all know what it is. Like, we all know we support each other and we love each other.
“And a part of all of that craziness has given us the platform to have our brands.”

The 2018 Cannes Film Festival came to a close, and Asia Argento delivered an incredible and jaw-dropping speech.
She did not mince words when it came to Harvey Weinstein, whom she accuses of rape.
See her powerful speech in the accompanying video and feel the weight of her words.
"I have a few words to say," Asia's speech begins.
Reportedly, the organizers did not know what she planned to say in her speech.
"In 1997, I was raped by Harvey Weinstein, here at Cannes. I was 21 years old."
Asia was one of the very first women to come forward and accuse him of sexual assault.
"This festival was his hunting ground."
According to the accusations — which are numerous — he had a number of hunting grounds.
"I want to make a prediction."
This is her hope for the future, and she's displaying an astounding degree of optimism that tomorrow will be better than yesterday.
"Harvey Weinstein will never be welcomed here ever again."
The entire world hopes that, at the very least.
Though we should consider, for a moment, how low the bar is set when a woman who accuses a man of one of the most evil deeds possible…
… To be speaking about him facing social and professional consequences instead of expressing the hope that he will spend the rest of his life beyond bars.
Asia continues to describe a better future.
"He will live in disgrace."
And then come the professional consequences:
"Shunned by a film community that once embraced him."
And she's not afraid to call out the people who were complicit.
"… And covered up for his crimes."
Then she really turns up the heat.
"And even tonight, sitting among you, there are those who still have to be held accountable for their conduct towards women."
"For a behavior that does not belong in this industry — does not belong in any industry or workplace."
She is absolutely right.
"You know who you are."
We would point out that perhaps some of them do not know who they are. There are plenty of sexual predators in the world who never realized that their actions have left a trail of suffering behind them.
Perhaps the #MeToo movement has made them realize the harm that they've done.
"But most importantly, we know who you are."
That is important, yes.
"And we're not going to allow you to get away with it any longer."
Asia's speech was met with well-deserved applause.
Sadly, there is a long way to go before people can even hope to see justice for all of the horrible crimes committed within the entertainment industry and beyond.
What's worse is that some people are already talking about "comebacks."
Surely we can all agree that rapists belong behind bars at the very least.
Surely we can also agree that serial harassers and abusers don't deserve a "comeback" in an industry that they once treated as a hunting ground.
Harvey Weinstein has always denied the many, many allegations against him, and it is possible that thanks to the passage of time and the woeful inadequacy of the legal system, he will never see the inside of a prison cell.
But perhaps #MeToo and #TimesUp can create a better future. One without sex monsters.
That, we think, is what has Asia Argento filled with optimism.

Tonya Harding is back in the news, and if you’re Nancy Kerrigan or any other human being with a sense of decency, you probably have very mixed feelings about that.
For the sake of our younger readers, we’d like to take a moment to explain why Harding is … well, not quite the OJ of the figure skating world.
She’s more like Tom Brady, if instead of ordering his equipment managers to deflate game balls, he had them bludgeon the other team’s quarterback.
Just weeks before the 1994 Winter Olympics, Harding’s biggest rival, Nancy Kerrigan, was clubbed on the knee in an attack that initially looked as though it would eliminate her from competition.
It was later revealed that Kerrigan’s attacker, Shane Stant, had been hired by her bodyguard, Shawk Eckhardt, and her ex-husband, Jeff Gilooly to carry out the assault.
Harding claimed the whole thing happened without her knowledge or approval, but she later pled guilty on several felony charges, striking a deal with prosecutors that allowed her to avoid jail time.
These days, Kerrigan is very much back in the news, thanks to I, Tonya the acclaimed, award-nominated film in which Margot Robbie portrays the disgraced ice queen with tremendous humor and compassion.
Biopics about scandalous figures are nothing new, but seldom have we seen an anti-hero treated with such admiration as Harding.
These days, Harding is being feted and celebrated across the media landscape.
She worked the red carpet alongside Margot Robbie at the 2018 Golden Globes, and she’s the subject of a popular new ABC News special that premiered this week.
Mostly, the doc just re-hashes the facts of the case and brings viewers up to date on what Harding has been up to in the decades since her name became synonymous with public disgrace.
But it occasionally sheds some new light on both the Kerrigan incident and Harding’s undeniable involvement with it.
The biggest bombshell, of course, is Harding’s admission–after decades of staunch denial–that she was aware that her ex and her bodyguard were planning something criminal.
Asked whether or not she had any role in planning the attack, Harding replied:
“No. I did, however, overhear them talking about stuff. ‘Well, maybe we should take somebody out so we can make sure [Harding] gets on the team.’
“And I remember telling them, I go, ‘What the hell are you talking about? I can skate.’”
If you’re thinking Harding could’ve done a hell of a lot more to make sure no one was “taken out” on her behalf, then you’re absolutely right.
Journalist Connie Chung, who previously interviewed Harding was stunned when told about the former skater’s admission:
“Unbelievable,” Chung remarked. “I can’t believe that she said that.”
Neither can we, Connie. Neither can we.
Memo to Margot Robbie: Maybe find a different date for the Oscars? Please?

Jelena, in one form or another, is back. For better or for worse.
As you can imagine, Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber’s romantic bike rides didn’t just start up overnight.
Reportedly, Justin has been trying to worm his way back into Selena’s life ever since news broke of her kidney transplant. That news awoke something within him. …
Though this Bieber development might make you think that this was the other way around, The Weeknd broke up with Selena Gomez.
He reportedly ended things by phone after their relationship began to fizzle out, he believed, over the summer.
We don’t think that it’s an unfair interpretation of that to say that The Weeknd wasn’t so excited about their relationship when Selena Gomez got her kidney transplant and was on bedrest for a couple of months to recover.
It’s not like they were married, but … does it rub anyone else the wrong way that The Weeknd was apparently fine with their relationship up until Selena’s illness became inconvenient?
(To be fair, it’s been reported that another factor was their conflicting work schedules, but … still)
One way or the other, though, Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez have reunited, after Justin managed to arrange a meet-up after calling Selena’s mom.
Even though Selena Gomez’s family can’t stand Bieber or the horse he rode in on, Selena’s mom apparently wanted to leave the choice up to Selena.
And … now we’re where we are today.
But there’s more to this story than we thought.
It was just under a month ago when we told you that Justin and Selena might get back together, if as friends.
But TMZ reports that Justin has been trying to reconnect with Selena for quite a while.
Justin didn’t just have to convince her mom that he and Selena should talk again.
He had to convince Selena, too.
That took some doing.
Not only does Selena’s family consider him “vile” and blame him for a serious bout of depression that she suffered, but Selena and Justin were estranged for a long time.
Remember when Justin Bieber was dating Sofia Richie?
Well, Justin’s fans gave him a hard time about posting so much about the relationship. (There were other issues, including Sofia’s age at the time)
Justin fired back angrily, because he was, at the time, kind of an out-of-control douchebag.
Selena Gomez spoke up to defend Justin’s fans, because celebs shouldn’t really lash out at their fans — for business reasons, and because it’s a dickish thing to do.
After that, well … they just didn’t speak. It was better that way.
What prompted Justin’s change of heart?
TMZ reports that it was Selena Gomez’s kidney transplant.
If you’re thinking “yeah, obviously,” there’s more to it than we’d all first realized.
This wasn’t just a scenario of Justin reconnecting with his ex to see how she’s doing, though that was also part of it.
When Justin learned of Selena’s transplant, sources close to him describe that he had something of an epiphany about Selena and how much she means to him.
It absolutely should not have taken Selena nearly dying (kidney failure due to Lupus and then major surgery is, let’s be clear, a near-death experience or two) for Justin to realize Selena’s value.
She’s beautiful, she’s kind, and she’s one of the greatest musical talents in the history of humankind.
Selena already gave Justin some of the best years of her youth, but now he’s coming back for more.
Maybe Justin will make her happy, though. Even if he is now sporting super ugly body tattoos.
By the way, some rumors have been floating around that there’s some sort of Jelena music collaboration in the works. TMZ says that they haven’t heard anything verifiable about that.
