Justin Timberlake Reportedly Delaying NSYNC Reunion Tour After Insisting Bigger Paycheck Then Group Members

Justin Timberlake is reportedly causing delays in the NSYNC reunion by demanding a larger share of the profits.

NSYNC’s MTV Awards appearance raised reunion hopes, but Timberlake’s demand for more profits has allegedly caused tension.

“Without Justin, there’s no comeback, no tour, no money,” a source told the National Enquirer.  “Only a fool would think the group should split everything five ways.  Chris KirkpatrickJC ChasezLance Bass, and Joey Fantone have had little success on their own, so it makes sense that Justin get more.”

Sources say that Timberlake reportedly requested up to 80% of the potential net profits if the band does decide to go on a tour.

According to an insider, this isn’t the first time Timberlake has been accused of hindering an NSYNC reunion.

Previously, it was said that “Lance Bass and the other guys in the group would love to have a reunion tour and record new music, but Justin is the one stopping it.”


Bill Cosby Facing Another Lawsuit By Woman Who Accused Him Of Drugging and Raping Her in 1972

Bill Cosby is facing a new lawsuit from Donna Motsinger, who alleges he drugged her in 1972 when she worked as a waitress and attended his show at the Circle Star Theater.

According to the lawsuit, Cosby picked her up in a limo and offered her a glass of wine.  She said she was then taken to Cosby’s dressing room, where she began feeling unwell.  Motsinger believed she was given aspirin when she started losing consciousness.  She claims she woke up at home in panties and “knew she had been drugged and raped by Bill Cosby.”

Motsinger is suing Cosby for emotional distress, and Cosby’s representative, Andrew Wyatt, said he had “No comment at this present time because this is utterly ridiculous and pointless.”

Earlier this month, actress Linda Ridgway-Whitedeer accused Cosby of sexual assault after he forced her to perform oral sex on him during what was supposed to be an audition in 1971.

Over the years, Cosby has been accused by over 60 women of rape, drug-facilitated sexual assault, sexual battery, child sexual abuse, sexual misconduct and sexual harassment.

Cops Show Up To Check On Britney Spears After Viral Knife Dancing Video

Britney Spears sparked so much concern with her knives video that police visited her home for a welfare check.

By now, we’re all used to the “Gimme More” star sharing her dance videos. However, in one of the latest clips, Spears jigged rapidly around her living room while holding two sharp knives. In the caption, Spears wrote, “I started playing in the kitchen with knives today!!! Don’t worry they are NOT real knives !!! Halloween is soon.” Though she downplayed the incident, people who saw the video weren’t taking any chances.

TMZ reports that the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department arrived at Spears’ home Wednesday and was able to speak with the singer. Several individuals had reported her video and showed it to the authorities. However, they determined the 41-year-old was okay and left the property.

In a separate home performance video that followed the knife clip, it appeared that Spears had a bandage on her arm, leading some to believe she may have cut herself. Throughout the years, there have been countless reports of Spears suffering from severe mental issues, such as bipolar and depression. She did spend time in an inpatient facility in the early 2000s after her infamous breakdown. Therefore, there has been continued concern over her well-being. Since she was removed from her conservatorship in 2021, fans and insiders have wondered whether or not it was the right decision.

Nevertheless, it seems Spears is much more free and at peace. The knives were simply props for her weekly Instagram routine.

Delta Air Lines Admits To Going “Too Far” With SkyMiles Program and SkyClub Access Updates

Delta Air Lines admits they may have made a hasty judgment call with the recent updates to its SkyMiles program.

At the start of September, Delta rolled out several updates that made it more difficult for American Express cardholders to enter Delta Sky Clubs. American Express premium cardholders went from unlimited club access to just six a year. Additionally, Delta announced a change in how it assigns Medallion elite status to frequent fliers. Participants will have to meet a certain Medallion Qualifying Dollars, which is higher than it once was. The MQD waiver is also getting the boot, which was offered by Delta credit cards, CNN explained. Many of these changes were scheduled to go into effect next year and 2025. However, CEO Ed Bastian feels that the company put these changes into effect too soon.

“We need to make certain that we can serve our higher tiers with the level of premium experience that you deserve and you expect. No question we probably went too far,” Bastian shared during an appearance at the Rotary Club of Atlanta on Monday. The topic was met with boos from the crowd.

Delta has seen a sharp surge in elite-status fliers. This has been a challenge for the airlines to keep up with the demand. 

“It’s gotten to the point, honestly, where we have so much demand for our premium product and services that are far in excess of our ability to serve it effectively in terms of our assets,” Bastian explained.

Bastian did not detail which modifications were coming but ensured customers that improvements were on the way. 

Michael Gambon, Who Played Dumbledore in “Harry Potter,” Has Died At Age 82

“Harry Potter” star Michael Gambon has passed away. 

Thursday morning, his publicist released a statement on behalf of the Gambon family, confirming that he’d passed away at a hospital surrounded by his wife Anne and son Fergus. He had been battling pneumonia prior to his death. 

 “We ask that you respect our privacy at this painful time and thank you for your messages of support and love,” part of the statement read. 

Most people know Gambon as Professor Dumbledore, the Hogwarts headmaster who safeguarded his students in six of the eight “Harry Potter” films. Gambon took over after the original actor in the role, Richard Harris, died in 2002. However, his career spanned over six decades. He has starred in theater productions with local groups in his hometown of Dublin, Ireland. Gambon also found success in TV shows and movies, such as “Paddington” and “The King’s Speech.”

Gambon earned multiple accolades for his work. This includes three Olivier Awards and two Critics’ Circle Theatre Awards. Additionally, he has impressively won four British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards. In 1998, he was honored as a knight for his services to drama.

“Harry Potter” frontman Daniel Radcliffe expressed his condolences to his longtime co-star. 

“Very sorry to hear about the passing of Michael Gambon. He was, on and off the camera, a legend. ‘Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times if one only remembers to turn on the light.’. -Albus Dumbledore,” he wrote in a heartfelt Instagram post.

Rupert Grint, who portrayed Ron Weasley in the franchise, also shared kind words about Gambon on Instagram, praising him for the “warmth and mischief” he brought to the film set.

Gambon was 82. 


Nia Long Speaks Out Against Ime Udoka’s Alleged Mistress and Criticizes Celtics for Lack of ‘Awareness’

Nia Long is speaking out against her ex-fiance’s alleged mistress and the Boston Celtics for their lack of “awareness” during the cheating scandal.
On Monday, she shared a video featuring Dr. Yaba Blay discussing the differential treatment of white and black women’s tears on the “We Can Do Hard Things” podcast.
“Where was this level of awareness a year ago, @celtics ???  #kathleenlynch,” Long, 52, wrote using a hashtag to reveal the name of Udoka’s alleged mistress.

Since the scandal, Long has called out the NBA team for their response to Udoka’s actions.

Previously, she had disclosed that the Celtics organization did not contact her or her family after publicly revealing the affair, despite being the mother of two.

“I think the most heartbreaking thing about all of this was seeing my son’s face when the Boston Celtics organization decided to make a very private situation public,” she said last December.

“It was devastating, and it still is.  He still has moments where it’s not easy for him.  If you’re in the business of protecting women — I’m sorry, no one from the Celtics organization has even called to see if I’m OK, to see if my children are OK.  It’s very disappointing.”

Udoka was eventually suspended and fired as head coach of the Celtics, then hired as head coach of the Houston Rockets.

Kourtney Kardashian Calls Kim A “Witch” After Kim Reveals Secret Group Chat About Her [Video]

Kourtney and Kim Kardashian’s feud has hit a new low, with both ladies slinging harsh words towards one another.

Season four of “The Kardashians” kicked off with drama between the estranged sisters, who seem to still be at odds over the Dolce & Gabbana wedding drama. In the episode, Kim calls Kourtney to extend an invitation to Milan for another event for the designer. However, the conversation turned when the older sister said she no longer wanted to be around Kim because she took concepts from her Italian wedding. Kourtney then slams the “narcissist” Skims founder for always needing to be the center of attention.

“You came to my wedding, you couldn’t be happy, you complained from the second you got there until the second you left,” Kourtney slammed.

That is when Kim revealed that she, their family, and friends had a group chat called “Not Kourtney” to discuss her recent behavior and her distance from the family. Kim claimed even Kourtney’s children have confided in her about their mother acting differently, presumably since she married rocker Travis Barker.

“Get a f*****g life. I don’t have side chats about anyone,” Kourtney fired back before calling her sister a “witch” and expressing, “I hate you.”

The two have been at odds even before Kourtney married Barker. While “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” was still on E!, Season 18’s premiere revealed the sisters in a slapfight with one another. Sadly, things have not improved with the show moving to Hulu.

Fans hoping to see the sisters kiss and make up shouldn’t hold their breath.

Merriam-Webster Adds “Beast Mode,” “Chef’s Kiss” & “Thirst Trap” To The Dictionary

The team over at Merriam-Webster has clearly been deep in the Twitter streets. 

The dictionary has officially incorporated several viral phrases into its newly added 690 words. This includes “thirst trap,” “beast mode,” and “chef’s kiss.” The long-running lexicon, founded in 1831, announced the latest additions to its vocabulary on Wednesday. “Thirst trap” is described as “desperately seeking attention.” At the same time, a “chef’s kiss” is listed as “a gesture of satisfaction or approval made by kissing the fingertips of one hand and then spreading the fingers with an outward motion.” The company also placed “goated” in its arsenal, used to express “the greatest of all time.” This term has been used to describe Black figures in entertainment, such as Nipsey Hussle, Serena Williams, Beyonce, Kobe Bryant, and Oprah Winfrey.

“We’re very excited by this new batch of words. We hope there is as much insight and satisfaction in reading them as we got from defining them,” Peter Sokolowski, Merriam-Webster’s editor at large, wrote in a statement obtained by People

“Beast mode,” used by sports stars such as LeBron James, was also added to the Merriam-Webster archive, describing “an extremely aggressive or energetic style or manner that someone such as an athlete adopts temporarily.”

The words are already available to be searched on the Merriam-Webster website. Forthcoming printed copies of the dictionary should also show the new terms soon. Other newbies include “bussin’,” “mid,” simp,” and “rizz.” 

Brittany Renner Shocks Shannon Sharpe By Revealing That She Slept With 35 Guys On Club Shay Shay Podcast [Video]

Brittany Renner sat down with Shannon Sharpe on the latest episode of “Club Shay Shay” podcast.

The “Basketball Wives LA” reality star shocked many, including Sharpe when they stumbled upon the topic of body counts. Renner did what most women shy away from, revealing how many people she has slept with while comparing her numbers to the former Yankees shortstop, Derek Jeter.

Renner revealed that she had slept with 35 men, and Shannon Sharpe needed to take an extra two shots.

“Oh, lord!” the ex-NFLer said. “Anybody else need a shot of this?! We are in a bar, so help yourself!”

Brittany Renner dived deeper into the conversation by sharing that she once caught a yeast infection after having intercourse with three men within 24 hours.

The interview switched gears and Sharpe asked about Renner’s ex, NBA player P.J. Washington. The two are cool with one another and how she’s happy for Washington on his recent engagement to Alisah Chanel.

“I’ve sat down with his fiancée,” Renner said. “We’ve had a four-hour conversation out for brunch.”
“I think they’re a perfect match for each other, quite frankly.”

JPMorgan Agrees to $75 Million Settlement With U.S. Virgin Islands In Jeffrey Epstein Case

JPMorgan has agreed to a $75 million settlement in a U.S. Virgin Islands lawsuit linked to Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking, sparking conspiracy theories.

On Tuesday, JPMorgan Chase and U.S. Virgin Islands Attorney General Ariel M. Smith announced a settlement agreement, including $30 million for regional charity groups addressing human trafficking and $25 million “to enhance the infrastructure and capabilities of law enforcement to prevent and combat human trafficking and other crimes in their territories.” Additionally, they will pay $20 million in attorneys’ fees for the lawsuit.

“This settlement is a historic victory for survivors and state enforcement, and it should sound the alarm on Wall Street about banks’ responsibilities under the law to detect and prevent human trafficking,” said Attorney General Smith, adding that her office looked forward to “building a new relationship with JPMorgan.”

Before the $75 million settlement, JPMorgan had already reached a $290 million deal in June in response to a class-action lawsuit with allegations identical to the U.S. Virgin Islands case.

According to their previous statement in June, JPMorgan Chase clarified that the settlement doesn’t imply guilt.  The bank expressed regret for its association with Epstein and stated they wouldn’t have continued doing business with him if they knew the extent of his actions.

California Governor Gavin Newsom Signs Bill To Tax Gun Sales To Fund School Safety Programs

California Governor Gavin Newsom is doing his part to keep schools safe against gun violence.

On Tuesday, Newsom signed a first-of-its-kind bill known as AB 28, which will double taxes on firearms and ammunition, The Hill confirms. An 11 percent tax will be added to the federal taxes already on these products, which is typically 10 or 11 percent. This revenue, which is estimated to be approximately $160 million yearly, will go directly to school safety programs, such as those to prevent campus shootings and give more resources to investigators. The money will also go toward an initiative to remove weapons from documented domestic abusers. Despite the controversial move, Newsom says the measure is necessary.

“While radical judges continue to strip away our ability to keep people safe, California will keep fighting because gun safety laws work,” he wrote in a statement.

The new action does come as a surprise to some, considering that Newsom has been opposed to raising taxes in the past. However, it seems his urge for stricter gun laws has trumped that. Newsom is one of the key figures pushing for national reform on guns, which will make it harder for dangerous people to obtain them. Newsom also has the research to back his AB 28 regulation. Studies have found that California is seeing a sharp decrease in firearm-related deaths. Per Newsom, the gun death rate is 43 percent lower than in other states.

Gun enthusiasts could challenge the laws in the near future. Chuck Michel, president of the California Rifle and Pistol Association, called the changes unconstitutional and claims this will not do much to prevent mass shootings.

Nick Cannon Says Mariah Carey Saved His Life During Lupus Scare: “She Was My Rock” [Video]

Nick Cannon is forever grateful for Mariah Carey standing by him when he was first diagnosed with lupus.

The comedian has praised Carey on multiple occasions for being a great wife and mother. However, Cannon says that during his health scare, she stepped up in ways that he will never forget.

“She was my rock. She went hard. To be honest, I probably wouldn’t be alive if it wasn’t for how hard she went with the doctors, with me, my stubbornness,” Cannon shared with podcast host Steven Bartlett during an interview with him for “The Diary Of A CEO” podcast.

Cannon was diagnosed with lupus in 2012. The disease has led to some pretty close calls, with the “Drumroll” actor experiencing kidney failure and potentially deadly blood clots in his lungs. Through it all, Carey prevailed as the “perfect helpmate, the perfect matriarch, the perfect mom, the perfect wife in those scenarios.” Even after divorcing in 2016, Cannon still has the utmost respect for the “One Sweet Day” vocalist.

Having lupus is partially what motivated Cannon to have more children outside of his and Carey’s twins, Moroccan and Monroe. However, he may have gone overboard with his procreation plan, now the father to 12 kiddos across six different women. Thankfully, his health has seemingly improved over the years, despite being unsure if he would survive long enough to see his children grow up. He was hospitalized last year for pneumonia but has since bounced back.

Mega Three-Team Trade Sends Damian Lillard to the Milwaukee Bucks, Jimmy Butler Reacts and Calls for NBA Tampering Investigation [Video]

Everybody felt like Jimmy Butler, if you are a fan of any team in the Eastern Conference after the blockbuster trade of Damian Lillard to The Milwaukee Bucks was announced Wednesday. The Portland Trailblazers finally found a reasonable suitor for Damian Lillard’s services after he requested a trade early in the Summer. It had almost been three months, and all indications until about two weeks ago was he would make his way to Miami.

The main obstacles in finalizing the deal revolved around finding a taker for the final year of starting center Jusuf Nurkic’s contract, as Portland aimed to clear their books and kickstart their rebuilding efforts. The initial offer of Tyler Herro and some draft picks failed to entice Portland to part ways with their seven-time All-Star. However, a more attractive proposition emerged in the form of a three-team trade involving the Milwaukee Bucks and Phoenix Suns.

Following news of the trade, Miami’s Jimmy Butler jokingly went to Instagram and asked the NBA to look into Milwaukee.

“Yo NBA man, y’all need to look into the Bucks for tampering… Y’all didn’t hear it from me, but I heard it from somebody.”

Milwaukee received Damian Lillard, while the Suns got some much-needed depth. Milwaukee sent Grayson Allen, while Portland sent Nasir Little, Keon Johnson, and Jusuf Nurkic. The Portland Trailblazers received Deandre Ayton, Toumani Camara, Jrue Holiday, a 2029 first-round pick from Phoenix, and pick swaps in 2028 and 2030 with Milwaukee.

The Miami Heat have already been in talks to acquire Jrue Holiday and the trade is pending until his new home is also established.

Raider Star Chandler Jones Claims He Was Forced into Mental Hospital Against His Will

Star pass rusher Chandler Jones took to X, formerly known as Twitter, claiming that he was brought into a mental health hospital against his own will last week.

On September 19, the four-time Pro Bowler shared an intriguing Instagram story while casually enjoying a bowl of cereal in his underwear, tagging LeBron James, Lamar Jackson, and Kodak Black in his posts.


After his barrage of interesting Instagram story posts, he took to X days later, saying, “First day out but I’m still aligned.” Attached to the tweet were written notes where Jones claimed he had been taken in by the Las Vegas fire department last week against his will. He shared “a group of 5 to 7” showed up at his front door with an ambulance.

Jones’ note also mentioned that he informed them that he hadn’t committed any wrongdoing, stating, “The police mentioned concerns about my online posts.”

He then claims he was transferred to Seven Hills Behavioral Health Hospital with “no cellphone or no communication.”

Chander, who is also the brother of UFC fighter Jon Jones, also alleged, “I was injected with I don’t know what.”

He claims he reached out to Raiders 6 to 7 times while he was inside the facility and never heard back.

Jones is in the second year of his three-year, $51 million contract. He’s not appeared in a game this season and when the organization has asked about his situation, they continue to call it a personal matter.
