Former Disney star Bella Thorne’s acting career might not be that impressive right now, but she’s making up for it by raking in the dough on social media. “For [an 0=”Instagram”] grid posting, it’s 65 grand a post,” she tells Vogue. “For story posting, it’s anywhere from 10 to 20K, and for Snapchat, it’s the same as Insta story.” The 20-year-old actress continues, “I started out at 18 with literally $200 in my bank account and I bought this house a year later, a year and a half. That’s all from social media.” Thorne goes on to say that she considers Instagram a “job” rather than a hobby. “I was raised to think social media is everything,” she declares.
Khloe Kardashian gave birth to her baby girl in Cleveland yesterday morning and my sources say that Tristan Thompson was there. Her sisters Kourtney and Kim were there too, along with their mom, Kris Jenner
Nobody seems to know how that went, but it had to be interesting. Tristan was seen leaving the hospital about 12 hours after the delivery.
This is Khloe’s first child, but Tristan also has a baby with an ex-girlfriend. She was pregnant when he left her and started dating Khloe.
Meanwhile, I have heard that Tristan has been “consistently cheating on Khloe,” and that we can expect more women to come out of the woodwork.
As far as the Kardashians are concerned, the plan is to get Khloe and the baby back to L.A. as soon as they’re fit to travel.
From what I hear, Tristan would like Khloe and the baby to stay in Cleveland, but he won’t try to stop her if she wants to leave.

Meghan Markle’s estranged sister Samantha is disappointed that she has not received an invite to the Royal Wedding. She Tweeted; “The issue is not a matter of closeness as more than 1,000 complete strangers are invited. Family is family. I have an uncle I have only seen once but I would never say he is not family because we are not close. Humanitarians move forward with love and kindness especially to Family. Out of respect, tradition, and humanitarianism, the #Markles should be invited if 2000 complete strangers are invited. Our uncle who got her the internship, brother, me, best friend of 30 years Nikki Priddy, nephews. Fact.”
Talk about a royal mistake! Prince William let it slip that he and his pregnant wife Kate are expecting a boy while attending a soccer match on Tuesday in the UK. William commented on Aston Villa player Jack Grealish, who scored his team’s game-winning goal, by telling reporters, “I’m going to insist the baby is called Jack.” It seems the prince then quickly realized he let the cat out of the bag and tried to cover his tracks by adding, “Or Jackie.” William and Kate are already parents to 4-year-old son George and 2-year-old daughter Charlotte.
There is a rumour that Channing Tatum and Halle Berry spent together on the set of “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” and that it may have caused tension in his marriage to Jenna Dewan. There is no suggestion that Channing did anything wrong, just that Jenna felt he was spending too much time with Halle when he could have been home.
Meanwhile, Jenna Dewan took to Instagram yesterday and shared her first post since announcing her split from husband Channing Tatum. The 37-year-old actress uploaded a photo of herself wearing a white crop top and matching skirt at the beach. “Thank you guys for all your love. Love you right back,” she captioned the pic.
Wendy Williams used her show yesterday to point out that Khloe Kardashian started dating Tristan Thompson in September 2016 after he ditched his pregnant girlfriend Jordan Craig for her. Wendy said, “I mean, the only person I feel bad for is the baby. I don’t feel bad for Khloé. Khloé, you knew when you pulled up on him that he had a girlfriend named Jordy [Jordan] Craig and Jordy was 5 months pregnant.” Wendy added, “By the way, sidebar, just a little note to women out there, when you’re dating and you know a guy is expecting a baby with a woman, here’s the thing. It might be over but the fact is — and only people who have babies know–when a baby enters the world, everyone goes to mush. Khloé, you jumped in some mess you didn’t need to be involved in to begin with.”
