Ashley Graham reveals she was sexually harassed on the job
Ashley Graham has dealt with her share of sexual harassment at work. In Glamour's July edition, when asked about how she establishes boundaries on set, the Sports Illustrated model recalls being stunned when she was cornered and propositioned as a teenager. "There was an incident on set of a campaign job when I was 17 years old ― I haven't told this story ― and there was a photo assistant who was into me," Ashley says. "He was like, 'Hey, come here,' and he led me into a closet. And I was like, 'What?' I thought he was going to show me something." He proceeded to pull her inside the closet with him and reveal a certain part of his male anatomy. "… He was like, 'Grab it.' And I was like, 'No! That's disgusting.' I freaked out. And thank God I was closer to the door, and I just bolted out," Ashley says. "I've seen him at jobs since. I even knew a girl he dated," she said. "I didn't tell her because there was a voice in me that said, 'Maybe he's changed.' It was my young mentality. But I told myself, ever since that incident, that I wasn't going to allow someone at work to manipulate what I wanted to do on set. So any image that you see out there is one that I wanted to take."
Did Tyga dis Kylie Jenner on his new single, 'Playboy'?
Is there a future for these two after all? If his new track "Playboy" is any indication, Tyga seems to believe his off-again ex Kylie Jenner could soon be knocking on his door once more. On the new single, Tyga raps: "She a superstar / She got it bad for me / If I hang up, she call right back to me / You cut her legs off / She crawls right back to me / I call it playboy tenacity." And according to Us Weekly, fans think there's no question the lines are about Kylie, who split from the rapper earlier ths year. If Kylie has any plans to take Tyga back, it's probably news to her — and to her new beau, Travis Scott. The pair went public with their relationship at a basketball game in April. Since then, Travis has reportedly told friends he and the reality star "are the real deal."

Did Meghan James plant Rob Kardashian romance rumors?
A week after rumors surfaced suggesting Rob Kardashian is dating reality star Meghan James, TMZ is claiming Meghan was behind the whole thing, which seemed a bit off from the start given Rob's simultaneous tweets about Blac Chyna. Initially, In Touch and Us Weekly both reported the Rob and Meghan were seeing each other for a matter of months, with In Touch noting the Kardashians were "concerned" about Meghan's stability (or lack thereof). When Rob denied the romance news on Twitter, saying he'd never even met the "Basketball Wives" and "Bad Girls Club" alum, Meghan retweeted his denial. According to TMZ, however, Meghan's team dreamt up the story to increase her profile and social media followers. And their efforts apparently worked: In one week, TMZ reports Meghan's Instagram followers doubled, jumping to more than 800,000.

Tracy Morgan refuses deposition in Walmart crash suit
Though he's returned to comedy, Tracy Morgan is still dealing with the effects of a 2014 car accident with a Walmart truck that killed his friend and nearly killed him. Among those lingering issues is a deposition request from Ohio Casualty, the insurance company that represents Walmart in the case. Tracy's lawyerBenedict Morelli recently told the New York Post his client is refusing to be deposed because "it will lead to nothing." Ohio Casualty reportedly aims to prove Tracy "exaggerated his injuries," which included broken ribs, broken legs and a brain injury, in order to get a rumored $90 according to the Post. Although Tracy and the others involved in the car accident reached a deal with Walmart around the same time the driver of the Walmart truck pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide and aggravated assault, a New Jersey federal lawsuit against Walmart is ongoing. In that suit, Walmart's insurer is questioning Tracy's injuries and spending habits following the initial settlement. Tracy's lawyer says the company has access to all of Tracy's medical records as well as his tax returns. "It's all about harassment," the attorney said. "They're making my clients victims again so that they could save their insurance company some money."
