Blac Chyna just won a major victory in her legal battle against the Kardashians. A court ruled against the Kardashian family’s effort to have Chyna’s lawsuit tossed out. This ruling means Rob Kardashian’s baby mama can proceed with her case against the family. Chyna is claiming the Kardashians tried to defame her and kill her show Rob & Chyna with her ex. Chyna’s lawyer Lisa Bloom said, “We thank the court for its careful, well-reasoned rulings. We look forward to getting a trial date next month and aggressively fighting for Chyna’s rights at trial.”
Despite rumors that Rihanna called it quits with her billionaire boyfriend Hassan Jameel, the couple were spotted on a date this week. As seen in photos posted by E!, the pair stopped by the Giorgio Baldi restaurant in Santa Monica, California, on Tuesday night. According to eye witnesses, bodyguards escorted the paired to a private dining room in the back of the hot spot, where she and Hassan dined for more than three hours. Rumors about Rihanna’s relationship status started swirling this month because the couple haven’t been spotted together in several weeks–and because RiRi’s ex Chris Brown recently commented on one of her sexy Instagram pictures. For what it’s worth, sources close to the pop star say she and Brown “don’t…even talk at all.” Rihanna started dating Jameel in the summer of 2017.
Mel B went through a brutal divorce from her husband Stephen Belafonte. But she kept at least one war souvenir.
Mel used to have a tattoo on her ribs that said, “Stephen, till death do us part you own my heart.” And she claims Stephen made her get it and she wanted it gone, obviously.
But instead of having it lasered off . . . which takes a lot more time and is actually pretty painful . . . she had a doctor CUT IT OUT, and she keeps it in a jar on top of her wardrobe.
She says, “Nobody can see it, but I know it’s there and it’s off my body. It sounds horrific, but what I went through was so horrific. It was almost like a cleanse. I just wanted to feel fresh and new again and untouched by that person.”
Channing Tatum says he’s willing to strip down for a guest appearance in the Magic Mike Live shows. “I’m getting closer to back in shape, but if I’m ever back in shape, I promised the Magic Mike cast of Vegas and London that I will strap on the old thong again.” Channing says, he better do it soon because his body isn’t what it used to be.
In related news, Channing Tatum and Jessie J are getting ever-more public with their romance. On Tuesday, the pair attended his Magic Mike live show in London, and they were spotted slow dancing to Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud” in the audience.
Ariana Grande fans are going to get a behind-the-scenes look at her life in the new docu-series Ariana Grande: Dangerous Woman Diaries. The Associated Press reports that the four-part series will be available for streaming on the pop star’s YouTube channel beginning November 29. “We wanted to bring you as closely into our world as possible,” Ariana says in the trailer. A portion of the series will focus on the making of Ariana’s latest album Sweetener.

Parts of her One Love Manchester benefit concert will be in the series as well.
George and Amal Clooney are reportedly on a shortlist to be named godparents of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s first child. “Amal and Meghan have been close for years, and Harry and George have become buddies because of that,” my source says. “They’re much closer than headlines let on.” The source adds that George has already “told a couple of people he has a strong hunch” that they’ll be among the couples asked to be godparents. After attending the Royal Wedding last May, The Clooney’s flew Meghan and Harry via private jet to their luxury residence on Lake Como-where they met the couple’s 1-year-old twins Ella and Alexander.
My source tells me Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx are going to tie the knot in Paris next year. I hear Katie wants a winter wedding in the City of Lights. This would be a long time coming for the two of them – they have been together for a very long time, in fact, Jamie has really been more of a father figure to Katie’s daughter Suri than her biological father, Tom Cruise.
