Is David Foster 'insisting on a pre-nup' with Katharine McPhee?
David Foster, 68, and 33-year-old Katharine McPhee have yet to confirm their PDA-filled and increasingly serious romance, but we're starting to get a picture of what their future together might look like — starting with their assets. David's net worth has been estimated around $30 million, a figure that's been in the news thanks to the music producer's high profile divorce from Yolanda Hadid. As Life & Style points out, Yolanda was his fourth wife, so he's likely to proceed with caution when it comes to his finances should he and Katharine wed. And while a source tells the tab "David's insisting on a prenup," adding that "he simply sees it as a necessary part of any marriage," a rep for Katharine assures the magazine she's the one who would want to ensure their money was sorted before they said "I do." "It's actually Katharine who would ask him to sign a prenup," said the rep of her client, who dealt with a costly divorce when she split from Nick Cokas. Says Life&Style's source: "If anyone should understand" David's prenup plan, "it's Katharine."

Kelly Clarkson is 'not above spanking' her kids
Once a Southern gal, always a Southern gal. That's the explanation Kelly Clarkson gave when she told a New York radio station last week that she knows spanking one's kids is controversial, but she feels sometimes it's the best way to get a message across to the kids she shares with Brandon Blackstock. "I'm not above a spanking, which people aren't necessarily into. And I don't mean like hitting her hard, I just mean a spanking," Kelly said, referring to her 3-year-old daughter River Rose, according to the New York Post. "My parents spanked me and I did fine in life and I feel fine about it." She added: "I'm from the South, y'all, so we get spankings. My mom would call the principal if I ever ended up in the principal's office and give permission for her to spank me … I'm a well-rounded individual with a lot of character, so I think it's fine."

Jesse Williams responds to H&M 'monkey' sweatshirt
The backlash against H&M continues this week after the brand ran a photo of an African-American child wearing a sweatshirt emblazoned with the words, "Coolest Monkey in the Jungle." H&M has since apologized for the racist implications of the image, promised to take the photo offline and assured the public the sweatshirt wouldn't be "for sale in the United States," without mentioning future plans for the sweatshirt and photo in other countries. The Weeknd was among the first celebs to publicly slam the brand for its offensive action. Now, Jesse Williams is weighing in. "Last year I chose to do a holiday campaign w/ @HM specifically because it centered women and girls as imaginative doers; because it centered an intelligent dark skinned girl w/ natural hair as protagonist; because it featured a loving, creative, working class black family," he wrote on Instagram. "And then, here they come with this bulls—. These offenses are more about the makeup of the rooms where they happen, than the items they produce. There is a concentration of power, committed to exclusion, whether casual, accidental or conscious." He went on to point out how tiresome it is to keep seeing egregious acts of ignorance like this. "The old world, white power, failing-upward clue of reckless trampling that repeated exposes itself, is boring already …" he wrote. "Aren't you bored watching mediocre, incurious & consequently destructive people waltz through your life, shepherded into positions of power, further choking off opportunity for the actually talented, curious & decent among us?" he asked. "It's a truly desperate and bizarre ritual we've become conditioned to. A ritual that WILL go the way of the confederate flag: A relic of a destructive, juvenile "civilization," disguised as harmless tradition. End relationships with your abusers. Make room for yourselves. #BuyBlack #BuyResponsibly #Make." The Instagram post included a photo of the brand's all-white board of directors.
