How is Scott Disick handling the 'Kravis' engagement news?
As Kourtney Kardashian, Travis Barker and their families and friends celebrated the couple's engagement over the weekend, fans expressed concern on social media about Kourtney's ex, Scott Disick. Although Scott, now single after splitting from Amelia Hamlin, previously gave Kourt's PDA-centric romance two thumbs up, a handful of reported Instagram comments in recent months have suggested he's less than OK with seeing Kourtney move on. Now, a source tells Page Six, "Scott is going crazy" about Kourtney's engagement. "He's going to go off the deep end. It's really bad. It's about to get dark," the insider was quoted as saying amid news of the engagement. Fans, meanwhile, launched a "check on Scott" campaign on social media on Oct. 17, with some seeming genuinely worried (though plenty of Twitter users also cracked jokes about his alleged jealousy). Travis popped the question to Kourtney, who shares three kids with Scott, on the beach in Montecito, Calif., over the weekend. She later shared photos from the flower-filled proposal, as did Travis' daughter, Alabama, who included a shot of the massive diamond ring the blink-182 drummer slipped on Kourtney's finger. The oval sparkler is estimated to be worth $500,000 to $1 million. As of Oct. 18, Scott had yet to comment on the engagement or post anything in response to the surge of tweets referencing his response to the news.
Kanye West's name has legally been changed to Ye
Kanye West's name change journey is complete! On Oct. 18, TMZ reported a judge has OK'd the rapper's request to legally change his name from Kanye Omari West to Ye. He'll no longer have an official middle or last name, although his ex, Kim Kardashian West, was still using her married name as recently as this month when she hosted "Saturday Night Live." Ye first filed to change his name in August, but it's an update that's been in the works for some time. Back in 2018, he made what seemed to be his first announcement about the new name with a tweet that read: "The being formally known as Kanye West. I am YE."
Kelly Osbourne has reportedly 'entered a rehab clinic'
Earlier this year, Kelly Osbourne admitted she'd relapsed after four years of sobriety. And she may be getting help for her ongoing battle with drug and alcohol addictions once again this month. On Oct. 18, a report from Radar Online claimed the 36-year-old star recently "entered a rehab clinic" in Austin, Texas. The outlet quotes an alleged "family source" who blames Kelly's return to inpatient treatment on situations related to her famous parents, Sharon Osbourne and Ozzy Osbourne. "The scandal about her mom's exit from 'The Talk' had a tremendous impact on her," the insider reportedly said. "At the same time, Ozzy has crippling Parkinson's disease and excruciating nerve damage. Kelly felt everything hit her at once." A rep for Kelly, however, told the Daily Mail they were "unaware of the reported rehab stint." Back in April, Kelly told fans she was "back on track" after a relapse that surprised even her, since she'd gotten through the stressful COVID-19 lockdowns without drinking. "This is a little hard for me to talk about, but I've always promised you that I will always be honest with you about where I'm at and what's going on in my road to recovery," she said at the time.
Mick Jagger responds to Paul McCartney's Beatles dis in the most hilarious way
If you wondered whether Mick Jagger caught wind of Paul McCartney's recent Rolling Stones diss, look no further than Mick's Twitter for your answer. Paul, 79, took a swipe at the Stones in an interview with the New Yorker earlier this month, telling David Remnick, "I'm not sure I should say it, but they're a blues cover band, that's sort of what the Stones are." He even added that the Beatles' "net was cast a bit wider than theirs." On Oct. 16, Mick, 78, shared a video that showed him onstage in Los Angeles. "Megan Fox is here, she's lovely," Mick says in the clip. "Leonardo DiCaprio. Lady Gaga. Kirk Douglas." And then … "Paul McCartney is here, he's going to join us in a blues cover later." Well played!
Drew Barrymore fangirls over hang with Chelsea Handler, Amy Schumer, Sarah Silverman and Sarah Cooper
Drew Barrymore stepped out for a fangirl-tastic girls' night in New York City on Oct. 17, and she still sounded giddy about the evening after it was all over. Sharing a snap from a backstage hang moment alongside Chelsea Handler, Sarah Silverman, Amy Schumer and Sarah Cooper at Chelsea's Beacon Theater show, Drew gushed about the "#highlightofmylife" experience of spending time with the comedy "legends." "I'm not someone who posts a lot with other people when I'm out socially, Drew explained in the caption. "… I stay home a lot and I am lucky that my job allows me to be around incredible jaw dropping people but usually its because my professional life brought me to a situation! But this is a moment I am so proud of," she continued. "To be with these women who make the world a better place. Their wit and humor heal us. Make us happy. They are also so strong. Wow. I had to share. I was like a weirdo asking to be in pictures with them! I am a fan. I was fan girling out so hard." Later in the long post, she doubled down on her praise, writing, "Thank you to these comedy goddesses who are also amazing humans to boot. Wow. Pinch me!" Drew was clearly not the only one having fangirl vibes from the whole situation, either. "Love you, drewski," Chelsea replied in the comments. "Always loved seeing your shining face. Last night was epic!"
Billy Porter slams Vogue for Harry Styles' dress cover
Where is the love? That's what Billy Porter wants to know in the wake of Vogue's decision to put a photo of Harry Styles in a dress on its cover in 2020 — more than a year after Billy's gender-fluid fashion made a splash on 2019 awards season red carpets. "I feel like the fashion industry has accepted me because they have to," the Emmy, Tony and Grammy Award winner says in a new interview with The Sunday Times. "I created the conversation [about non-binary fashion] and yet Vogue still put Harry Styles, a straight white man, in a dress on their cover for the first time." (The British singer's cover marked the first time American Vogue featured a man alone on its cover.) "I was the first one doing it and now everybody is doing it. I'm not dragging Harry Styles, but … He doesn't care, he's just doing it because it's the thing to do. This is politics for me. This is my life," argued Billy, 52. "I had to fight my entire life to get to the place where I could wear a dress to the Oscars and not be gunned down," Porter continued. "All [Harry] has to do is be white and straight." Billy's new memoir, "Unprotected," is out later this month.
Brad Pitt releases first champagne since Angelina Jolie left Chateau Miraval
Brad Pitt just released his wine label's first champagne bottling since Angelina Jolie officially sold her shares in Chateau Miraval. According to People, Brad' s new rosé champagne release of Fleur de Miraval "ER2," created via the historic Saignée method, is limited to just 22,000 bottles and sells for about $400 a bottle. Based in the northeast section of France's Champagne region, Fleur de Miraval is now "the only champagne house dedicated solely to producing rosé champagne," People reports. "I was impressed last year with the success of our first edition, Fleur de Miraval ER1," Brad tells the outlet. "With ER2, we pushed the limits even further. We created new extremes for quality. Each edition of Fleur de Miraval is a constant quest for beauty, a desire to create space for all possibilities," the star adds. The release comes three weeks after Angelina sold her shares in what began as a joint wine venture for Brad and Angelina. She had previously been unable to ditch her stake in the brand because of unsettled matters related to the former couple's divorce. Chateau Miraval is now eyeing an expanded wine production process for 2022, per People.
Celebrities, politicians mourn the death of Colin Powell
Colin Powell — who served as the United States' first Black national security adviser, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and secretary of state — died on Oct. 18 from complications related to COVID-19. He was fully vaccinated, his family said in a statement, but suffered from multiple myeloma, a form of blood cancer that suppresses the body's immune system, and Parkinson's, according to CNN. Colin's death at age 84 sparked a wave of tributes on social media from other politicians as well as celebrities. Praising the late general as a "dear friend and a patriot of unmatched honor and dignity," President Joe Biden and First Lady Dr. Jill Biden said Colin had "repeatedly broken racial barriers" over his many decades of work. "In these times we need the minds of great men like him … now he is gone," Jada Pinkett Smith posted. "I don't even have the words. My deepest condolences to the Powell family and all those that love him. Rest In Peace Mr. Colin Powell. You will be GREATLY missed." Arnold Schwarzenegger issued a long statement as well, which he introduced on Twitter by writing, "Colin Powell lived his life being first but always put himself second – to his country, to his soldiers, to his family. May his selflessness and patriotism inspire all of us, every day."
