Dana White Responds to Ariel Helwani ‘I Don’t Give a Sh*t What He Thinks’

EXCLUSIVE

Dana White isn’t taking kindly to being called “tone-deaf” over his decision to book Greg Hardy and Rachael Ostovich on the same UFC fight card … saying, “I could give a sh*t.”

… and it didn’t stop there. 

First, some backstory … 

Both Hardy and Ostovich are fighting at the big UFC on ESPN event on Saturday night — which drew heavy criticism from ESPN’s main MMA reporter, Ariel Helwani, who sounded off Wednesday. 

“I found this decision to be incredibly tone-deaf, to put it mildly,” Helwani said on ESPN.

FYI, Hardy was found guilty of domestic violence by a judge in 2014 — but the conviction was thrown out in 2015 when he appealed to have the case go in front of a jury … and his accuser stopped cooperating with prosecutors.

Ostovich suffered serious injuries in an alleged domestic violence incident back in November. She claims her husband (who’s also an MMA fighter) snapped and beat her ruthlessly.

Helwani and others have expressed concern over having them fight on the same card — so, when we saw White in NYC on Thursday morning, we asked for his thoughts. 

“I don’t give a sh*t what Ariel Helwani thinks,” White said … “Who the f*ck is Ariel Helwani to question anything that we do.”

“I think we’ve done a pretty good job in 20 years. I could give a sh*t what he thinks, or anybody else for that matter.”

So, why are they on the same card? White says they’re both on the UFC roster and it was bound to happen at some point.

White has previously said he spoke with Ostovich about booking Hardy on the card and claimed she was cool with it. 

R. Kelly Thinks Daughter’s Brainwashed … Blames Ex for Turning Her

EXCLUSIVE

R. Kelly is rationalizing his daughter’s powerful condemnation of his behavior — he believes his ex-wife cooked it all up, despite the fact he’s been estranged from their child for years.

Sources close to R. Kelly say … the R&B singer isn’t upset with Joann Lee Kelly for breaking her silence and calling him a “monster,” because he thinks his daughter was only parroting her mother, Drea Kelly’s views. We’re told he feels Drea’s brainwashed all 3 of their kids into hating him.

Although our sources say Kelly loves and misses his kids, he seems to be ignoring the reality — that he has no relationship with them — and hasn’t for some time now.

Kelly did have a musical collab in 2015 with Joann, who is a talented singer — but we’re told he thinks Drea drove a wedge between them after that, because she was furious Joann had been in the studio with him.

We’re told Drea brought their kids to an R. Kelly concert in Atlanta a couple years ago, but since then he’s had little contact with them, and he has no clue why things switched up. 

However, anyone who’s seen “Surviving R. Kelly” knows exactly how Drea feels about her ex … and it ain’t good. Worth nothing, Drea told us earlier this month she’s open to Kelly reaching out to the kids because they’re all adults now and free to make their own choices. 

Joann seems to have made her feelings extremely clear, but we’re told her father wants to repair the relationship. 

Pete Davidson Still In Dark Place Thinks the World is Against Him

EXCLUSIVE

Pete Davidson thinks the world is against him, and not just internet trolls.  He believes even his friends and colleagues don’t care if he lives or dies … even though that’s not the case.

Sources close to Pete tell us he’s reached out to people in his life and at times lashed out, claiming they were ignoring him and his struggles, and if he did end his life … they wouldn’t care.

 

Now it’s clear what Machine Gun Kelly was saying when he told us it was a really “weird time” for Pete and those around him.  

We’re told Pete has reached out to those in his circle, including co-workers at “SNL,” asking for help, but at the same time putting up a wall and even accusing them of ignoring his pain.

As we reported, Ariana Grande was so concerned after Pete posted what seemed like a suicide threat over the weekend she rushed to 30 Rock to offer him comfort, but he turned her away and even had security block her.

Our sources say Pete’s friends have expressed their love for him and they’re doing whatever they can to offer him support, but it doesn’t seem to be working.
