3. Robert Downey Jr., $81 million (sweet, sweet Avengers money)
4. Chris Hemsworth, $64.5 million (again, Avengers)

According to a source, she is “not pleased, but not surprised”. She knows she’s not his babysitter, and he’s gotta make his own mistakes.

After 12 seasons, The Big Bang Theory and it’s awful laugh track will conclude in 2019. I make fun of it, but in reality it’s the biggest show on TV with 52 Emmy nominations, including 10 wins. The final season will debut on September 24 and presumably end in May. The show’s successful spinoff, Young Sheldon, will continue to air.
This is just a weird story. Kirstie Alley is on the British version of “Celebrity Big Brother”, and she dropped a pretty startling claim: She met PRINCE CHARLES once . . . when he was chillin’ at COURTNEY LOVE’s house. She said, quote, “I’m friends with Courtney Love and one time she asked me to dinner and when I came . . . what’s his name? Oh my God . . . Elton John was at dinner. And there was only four of us . . . “Then, another time she asked me over to her house for ‘snacks,’ and Prince Charles was there.” Don’t get me wrong, I’d love to live in a world where Prince Charles hangs out on Courtney Love’s couch crushing cheetos and watching Coronation Street, but there’s just no way any of this happened.
PINK stopped in the middle of a show in Australia the other day, when she saw a sign in the audience that hit her straight in the feels. It said, quote, “My name is Leah. I’m 14 years old. I lost my beautiful Mum last month. I would LOVE a hug . . . Please!” So Pink went into the audience and hugged Leah. Then she signed her arm and took a selfie with her. Leah was actually supposed to go to the show with her mom, but she ended up going with her aunt, who said, quote, “She is so heartbroken. But since the concert, she hasn’t stopped smiling and singing.”
NICKI MINAJ was supposed to hit the road with FUTURE next month, but on Tuesday night, the tour was canceled. The official word was that they wanted to, quote, “reevaluate elements of production” and give Nicki more time to rehearse. But there are rumors that it was canned because ticket sales were DISMAL. A source says Nicki was booked into arenas that seat 15,000 to 20,000 people, and she was only selling between about 1,000 and 5,000 tickets per show. She’s also “gone off the rails” because her new album “Queen” debuted in second place to TRAVIS SCOTT’s “Astroworld”. It also had worse first-week numbers than CARDI B, whom she considers a rival.
And finally, we’ve been hearing rumors for months that Idris Elba will be playing James Bond. Well, according to Idris, it’s not happening. While attending the premiere of his new film Yardie, he was repeatedly asked if he’d succeed Daniel Craig as 007. He couldn’t have been clearer, repeatedly saying “no” and then leaving the conversation.
“I don’t want to talk it about, honestly,” he said during one interview. “Let’s leave it.”
