Khloe Kardashian addresses rumors she’s dating ‘another NBA player’
Khloe Kardashian has shut down rumors she’s dating a “another NBA player” after “The Kardashians” season finale aired footage showing the aftermath of Tristan Thompson’s 2021 paternity scandal. Responding to a claim she’s moved on from Tristan with a new hoops star, Khloe assured @Kardashiansocial users on Friday that she’s single and content — for now. “Definitely NOT True!!! I love you! Thank you for the nice wishes but I am not seeing a soul,” Khloe commented on a thread about her love life, according to CommentsByCelebs. “I am happy focusing on my daughter and myself for [a while],” she added. Khloe, who shares 4-year-old daughter True with Tristan, was giving their relationship another chance when the Chicago Bulls star fathered a child with another woman, Maralee Nichols. Khloe learned about Tristan’s (latest) betrayal after Maralee filed a paternity suit against Tristan, forcing him to admit the baby boy was his. Prior to her on-off relationship with Tristan, Khloe dated NBA players including James Harden and Lamar Odom, whom she married in 2009.

Johnny Depp warns fans about fake social media accounts with his name on them
In the wake of his highly publicized defamation trial win against his ex-wife Amber Heard, Johnny Depp’s social media presence has seen a big spike — and not just because he joined TikTok. Over the weekend, the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star warned fans not to trust new accounts associated with him, his name or his team on a variety of platforms. “I’ve been made aware that there are fake accounts pretending to be me or people working with me,” Johnny shared on his Instagram Stories on Sunday, according to Metro. “I do not have any private or side accounts on any platforms. These are the only pages run by me and my team where we share updates and communicate: Instagram @JohnnyDepp TikTok @JohnnyDepp Facebook @JohnnyDepp Discord @JohnnyDepp0854,” he continued. “I ask that you remain cautious as it seems these fake accounts can be relentless. My team is working to combat the problem. Thank you for your continued support and for making me aware of this issue! Love & respect, JD xx.” The heads-up comes after Amber’s lengthy sit-down interview with Savannah Guthrie, in which the actress discussed the ways her negative portrayal on social media seemed to influence jurors to find in favor of Johnny, despite her claims he abused her during their marriage. The actor filed suit against Amber over a 2018 op-ed for the Washington Post in which she described herself as a public face of domestic abuse. Johnny, who was not named in the piece and has denied all of Amber’s abuse allegations, claimed he was implicated as Amber’s abuser, which he said damaged his career.

In the comments, both Jennifer and Emme got plenty of love from users who appreciated both Emme’s voice their mom’s care with pronouns. “‘They’ is how Emme identifies,” one person wrote. “This was J.Lo sharing that information.

Jurors in Bill Cosby sex abuse case to start deliberations over despite having almost reached a verdict
The Los Angeles County jury that heard Bill Cosby’s latest sexual assault case must start deliberations over again from the beginning with one new juror on Monday, after nearly having reached a verdict. According to the Associated Press, jurors had already reached a verdict on plaintiff Judy Huth’s claim the comic sexually assaulted her at the Playboy Mansion when she was 16 in 1975. But they had yet to determine if the 84-year-old star, who has denied the plaintiff’s allegations, should be hit with punitive damages by the end of the day Friday. Since the judge handling the case had promised one juror she could leave Friday and one question remained unanswered when deputies arrived to close the courtroom, the judge ordered an alternate to fill in, which means the jury must go back to square one in its deliberations. Bill was released from prison in Pennsylvania last year after his criminal conviction for aggravated indecent assault was overturned. He was not in short last week, according to the AP.
