KIM KARDASHIAN AND KANYE WEST ARE EXPECTING BABY NO. 4 – (01/03/2019)
Baby No. 4 on board! In a surprise news flash, news broke that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are expecting their fourth child via surrogate. Multiple publications, including People, Us Weekly and E! confirmed the news. The baby-to-be will join Chicago, 1 this month, Saint, 3, and North, 5.
The announcement comes as a surprise because as recently as August, the 38-year-old mom was reportedly not “in a huge rush” for another baby, despite the 41-year-old rapper’s desire for more.
“But I’ve been really open about it and talked about it on our show, so I don’t know,” the KKW Beauty guru told E! in August. “We start filming season 16 next week, so if I think about it more and it’s gonna happen, you’ll definitely see it on the show. But as of now, no.”
Over on Twitter, after fans got over the shock, they started weighing in with name recommendations. Mercury, South, East and West are among the most-frequently floated. Haters were quick to posit that Drake (who Kanye is feuding with) is “probably” the father, and that they only decided on a fourth child because ratings are down on KUWTK.
After having two rough pregnancies with North and Saint, she opted for surrogacy following a doctor’s recommendation. Despite how challenging it was for her to give up control over the pregnancy, Kim ultimately has said having a surrogate “is the best decision I ever made.”
She is reportedly using the same surrogate she used with Chicago. An insider tells Us Weekly that the baby is due in May. Us Weekly is also reporting the baby is male.
KANYE WEST ISN’T PERFORMING AT COACHELLA – (01/03/2019)
Kanye West won’t be performing at Coachella this year. According to TMZ, Ye was in talks to headline the festival in April, however due to negotiations over his stage setup, it won’t be happening. Kanye informed festival organizer Goldenvice that he would not perform on a traditional 60×40 foot stage because it is “artistically limiting.”
An insider close to Kanye told TMZ, “These 40×60 stages are so archaic. It’s the same type of stage on which Shakespeare’s works were performed hundreds of years ago.”
Goldenvoice would reportedly not let Kanye alter or remove his set, so they mutually agreed to call off his performance.
In other news, Childish Gambino, Ariana Grande and Tame Impala will be heading Coachella this year.
ARIANA GRANDE TO HEADLINE COACHELLA 2019 – (01/03/2019)
Coachella announced its 2019 lineup late Wednesday, revealing that Ariana Grande will headline the festival’s Sunday dates. Childish Gambino will also headline, as will Tame Impala.
Rihanna and Kanye West, both previously rumored to be considered for the headlining slots, are not performing.
Other confirmed performers for this year’s lineup include Billie Eilish, J-pop group Perfume, Solange, The 1975, Janelle Monae, Bad Bunny, K-pop stars BLACKPINK, Khalid, Zedd and more.
The show will run for two weekends starting first on April 12-14 and again on April 19-21. Tickets go on sale January 4th.
ARIANA GRANDE SAYS SHE’S NOT GOING TO DATE ANYONE IN 2019 & ‘PROBABLY’ BEYOND: Ariana Grande is making a resolution about her love life in 2019 and perhaps even beyond that. It all started when the 25-year-old singer responded to a headline that read, “Who Is Ariana Grande Dating NOW?!” Ariana initially tweeted, “can they tell me too?” Then, a fan tweeted, “spoiler. it’s me!” Ariana then took to Twitter to actually clarify that she’s not planning on dating anyone in 2019 or “probably” the rest of her life “Spoiler for the rest of this year / probably my life: it’s no one,” Grande tweeted, setting the record straight. “Please refer back to this tweet for further questions.” Everyone got that? Great.”
DEMI LOVATO CONFIRMS HENRY LEVY RELATIONSHIP RUMORS – (01/03/2019)
Demi Lovato and Henry Levy are Instagram official. The singer posted a video on her Instagram Story of herself kissing Henry Levy – her sober companion – on a private jet.
Lovato hasn’t been active on social media following her overdose, though she has occasionally returned to express her gratitude to fans following her near death experience. She also recently shared a post slamming reports speculating about her health.
“I love my fans, and hate tabloids. Don’t believe what you read,” she wrote. “People will literally make up stuff to sell a story. Sickening. If I feel like the world needs to know something, I will tell them MYSELF. Otherwise people stop writing about my recovery, because it’s no one’s business but mine. I am sober and grateful to be alive and taking care of ME.”
Video confirmation of the 26-year-old’s relationship with the fashion designer comes after a source told ET Online the pair are “casually dating.”
They first met a few years ago in rehab. Lovato is currently focused on her recovery following an apparent overdose, and has been leaning on Levy.
