Lawsuits and Justice: Catch the Latest Celeb Gossip Now
September is coming in strong with tons of celeb lawsuits! From Ariana suing Forever 21 to Kendall being sued for Fyre Festival, here’s all the juicy celeb gossip this week that we don’t want you to miss!
Man Arrested in Connection to Mac Miller’s Death
Last Thursday, a man named Cameron Pettit appeared before a Los Angeles court in connection to Mac Miller’s death. Allegedly, Cameron sold Mac fake drugs that contain fentanyl just two days before the singer passed away. It was said that after the news of Mac’s death, Cameron even sent a message to a friend saying, “Most likely I will die in jail”. If proven guilty, Cameron will be sentenced to a maximum of 20 years in prison. We hope justice will be served and let’s hope that this comes as a lesson to all of us to stay away from illegal drugs in general!

Ariana also says that her team has been in talks with the brand for endorsement but no deal was ever made because of pay disagreements. Now, Ari is suing them for $10m for copyright infringement and false endorsement.

Fyre Festival set out to provide a once-in-a-lifetime musical experience on the islands of Exuma. Due to circumstances beyond our control, we must postpone this experience. We are working tirelessly to ensure each guest leaves the island safely and ask for everyone’s patience and cooperation as we continue to provide ongoing updates via email and our official social media channels as they become available, including refund information.
2 years after the failed Fyre Festival, stars including Kendall Jenner and Emily Ratajkowski have been officially sued to recover money paid for promotions. The lawsuit came from the event’s trustee, Gregory Messer, who accused Kendall and Emily of posting about the event on social media without disclosing they were paid to do so. Meanwhile, producer Billy McFarland continues to serve in jail while co-producer Ja Rule remains free of any charges.

Therefore we decided to remove our second cover of Billie Eilish. For this cover, it was never our intention to create a look that is confusing or insulting to Billie. It was only ever our intention to honor her impact by creating this avatar, which is part of a cover series highlighting the power of digital prodigy artists. ・ ・ ・ ・ ・ ・ ・ ・ ・ #lisaandlena #leli #lelifamily #twins #loveit #musically #lisaandlenalove #lenaandlisa #nylongermany #coverstory #3D #genz #digitalprodigies #releaseday #friday #boundarybreaking #cover
NYLON Germany has released three September covers, one featuring a robot-version of Billie Eilish that’s bald and naked! The singer immediately slammed the magazine saying she did not consent of this idea and wasn’t even told something like this was gonna be launched. In response, NYLON put down the cover and pointed out that it was never their intention to confuse or insult Billie and that they made it in honor of her impact on the world.
