Beyonce and JAY-Z hit the Amalfi Coast
Beyonce and JAY-Z are squeezing all they can out of their last bit of downtime in Europe before their On the Run II tour returns to the U.S. They made that point abundantly clear on during a recent sail aboard a yacht off the Amalfi Coast in Italy. Following the latest batch of rumors Beyonce could be expecting her fourth child, new photos popped up on Saturday, July 21, that showed a swimsuit clad Bey and relaxed looking Jay leaning back and enjoying the ride as the waves crashed behind them. Their kids, Blue Ivy, Rumi and Sir, didn't appear in the latest pics but the adorable kiddos were definitely with mom and dad on a boat off Ponza Island the following day. Last week, Bey and Jay's travels took them to Nice, France, where they enjoyed a meal with Bono and Beyonce's mom, Tina Knowles Lawson. They're due back in the U.S. for a performance in Cleveland on Wednesday, according to People.
Harvey Weinstein accused of hiding assets from creditors
Among the creditors Harvey Weinstein owes money to since his sexual assault and misconduct scandals broke last year is Sitrick, Inc., a so-called "crisis P.R. firm" that claims the former producer owes them $352,105.63 for their work in helping him with his image and plan for moving forward. The company ditched Weinstein in April on grounds it had not been paid and is still fighting in court for the money the company says it's due. Now, The Blast reports Sitrick, Inc. has asked the court to order a hold on Weinstein's assets while the arbitration continues. The company claims to have evidence Weinstein is obfuscating the the truth about his assets and is demanding to be paid not only the missing money in connection with Sitrick, Inc.'s contract with Weinstein but also the cost of expenses stemming from the company's head honcho, Mike Sitrick, having been forced to appear as a witness in Weinstein's assault case.
Khloe Kardashian apologizes for using an offensive word on Instagram Stories
Khloe Kardashian issued a mea culpa at the end of last week after she and her sister, Kourtney Kardashian, both used an offensive word in an Instagram Story Khloe posted from their morning workout. "@khloekardashian did a live insta today using a discriminatory word. Retarded, what we call the R-word," posted one user on Twitter in repsonse (via UsWeekly). "I love the Kards but this shocked me & is repulsive." Another echoed similar sentiments, posting, "I was watching your livestream on Instagram until you said the 'r' word. You should pay more attention to your word choices especially since you have a huge following&don't know who you could be offending. If [your daughter] True had a disability you would use a different word @khloekardashian." Though it's unclear if Kourtney responded to the backlash, Khloe made a point of apologizing. "Ugh I hate that word! Why did I even say that?" she replied to the first commenter. "You are a million percent right and I actually greatly dislike when people use that word! I will do better! I am sorry! much love today." By the end of the day on Friday, July 20, Us noted, she had yet to remove the Instagram Live clip.

Halsey clarifies G-Eazy IG comments
A picture's only worth 1,000 words if the painter gets to pick 'em. Unfortunately for Halsey and G-Eazy, fans of the former couple seem eager to do the interpreting themselves lately. Case in point? Over the weekend, G-Eazy shared a photo from his show in Washington state. In the pic, he's standing at the center of a set featuring a maelstrom of haze, smoke, lights, clouds and a massive moon, along with the risque caption, "Big D**- Energy." Halsey apparently loved the post and replied, "☁️🌪💧." Fans quickly replied by announcing in the comments that her three-Emoji response was a shade-filled challenge to, er, the size of the aforementioned "energy." Not so much. "No petty here," Halsey later explained (via ET). "Caption dumb funny and stage looks dope. jealous of everyone who gets to see the show!" Since their split, Halsey and her rapper ex have reportedly kept things civil and friendly, with Halsey even weighing in on rumors he was dating Demi Lovato to assure TMZ the two are just pals.
Lin-Manuel Miranda launches arts fund in Puerto Rico
"Hamilton" is Puerto Rico-bound and so is a multi-million dollar, arts-focused recovery fund, thanks to Lin-Manuel Miranda. The "Hamilton" creator arrived in Puerto Rico on Sunday, July 23, where he announced that all proceeds from the musical's January 2019 run at the University of Puerto Rico's main campus will be donated to the Flamboyan Arts Fund. "As someone whose life has been transformed by the power of the arts, and who has witnessed the incredible healing, growth, stability, and well-being that cultural institutions can bring to local communities, I cannot stand idly by and watch Puerto Rico's arts and culture scene suffer. And that is exactly why we have created the Flamboyan Arts Fund," he said, according to THR. Nearly a year after the U.S. territory was ravaged by Hurricane Maria, many still remain without power and other essential amenities. Lin-Manuel's new fund currently has five recipients, including a theater company and a dance school. The star hopes to build the fund into a $15 million asset for the unique arts and cultural community in Puerto Rico.
Jenelle Evans supports David Eason in his MTV gripe about Bristol Palin
In case there was any question, Jenelle Evans agrees 100 percent with David Eason in his opinion about the the newest member of "Teen Mom OG," Bristol Palin. "I know MTV is comprised of hypocrites but how do you fire me and hire Bristol Palin after all her homophobic and racist remarks?" he posted on Facebook last week after the announcement. "Nothing against [her] personally but everything against @mtv. Liberals at their best trying to confuse, persuade and penalize," he added. The next day, Jenelle chimed in on Twitter, writing, "And again, I will ALWAYS stand by my husband's opinion. #BestBelieve #StandUpForYourself 🙌🏻💞." David's comments come after he was fired from the show for posting multiple offensive comments about the gay and transgender communities on social media.

Both she and her son have openly used the word "f—-t," she's defended anti-gay comments made by "Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson and she slammed Barack Obama for supporting gay marriage. As of Monday, July 23, MTV had not commented on Jenelle and David's gripe.
Queen Elizabeth left 'fuming' after rumors of Prince Philip's death take over Twitter
Nobody's safe from the Internet gossip mill — not even the crown. Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip had that lesson driven home on Saturday, July 21, when rumors the 97-year-old Duke had died reached their apex as a trending topic on Twitter. He remains very much alive — and his wife of seven decades is furious about the whole thing. That's according to The Sun, which reports the "fake news" left the phone lines at Buckingham Palace inundated with concerned callers as the queen and Philip had "a tense, 10-minute phone call" about how to resolve the situation. "They both agreed there was little they could do but they are very, very annoyed," a royal source told the tab. "It's not nice to hear people the world over commenting on your health or death, even if you're used to being in the public eye. It shows how the internet can get out of control. The Queen is absolutely fuming over this and thinks it's disgraceful."
