JUSTIN BIEBER’S DEFAMATION SUIT MOVES FORWARD WITH TWITTER SUBPOENA: Justin Bieber won a small victory Thursday in his defamation suit against two social media users who accused him of sexual assault. A judge granted a motion by Justin’s lawyers to subpoena Twitter for information on the identities of the two women, who are known only as Danielle and Kadi online. “We just want to uncover who is behind these two accounts and it may be the same person,” Bieber’s lawyer, Evan N. Spiegel, told Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Terry Green. Justin filed a $20 million defamation lawsuit against the accusers last month, claiming their allegations of assault in 2014 and 2015 can be disproved by “indisputable documentary evidence” – including eyewitness accounts and paparazzi photos showing where Justin really was on the days in question.


Hailey Bieber is saying she’s “sorry” after she got publicly called out by hostess Julia Carolan on TikTok. She participated in a series calling out celebrities participants had previously met and rating them on their behavior.

Carolan said she worked as a hostess “in a fancy Manhattan restaurant,” and encountered multiple celebs. She rated her interactions with Gigi and Bella Hadid as 10/10, saying they were “so nice” and were “super polite and friendly with staff,” which as Carolan noted “is rare for celebrities.”

Then she shared her encounter with Bieber. She said: “This is gonna be controversial. I’ve met her a handful of times and every time she was not nice. I really wanna like her but I have to give her like a 3.5 out of 10. Sorry!”

“Just came across this video, and wanted to say so sorry if I’ve ever given you bad vibes or a bad attitude,” Bieber wrote in the comments of Carolan’s video. “That’s not ever my intention!”

She added: “Hate hearing that was your experience with me but glad u called me out so I can do better!! Hopefully we meet again so I can apologize in person.”

After seeing Beiber’s comments, Carolan replied, “Hi Hailey! We love an accountability queen [crown emoji] thanks sm for taking the time to apologize – I hope we can meet again one day and start over. x.”

The clip has been seen and liked more than 2.6 million times.

Nick Cannon has announced that he is taking time off from his nationally syndicated radio show following the fall out from his recent “anti-semitic” comments. Cannon announced via Twitter yesterday (July 16th), “I have decided to take some time away from my radio show so I can commit myself to deeper, more thorough reflection and education. I continue to express my gratitude to the Rabbis, community leaders and institutions who have reached out to me to help enlighten me.”

He continued, “Their input and friendship will help me as I further commit myself to more profound learning and towards strengthening the bond between the Black and Jewish cultures every day going forward.”

Skyview Networks, the syndicator for Nick’s show, said in a statement to ET that “Nick Cannon has begun a period of self-reflection to address the pain he caused. While we recognize his apology, this time is needed to establish an action plan towards real change and advocacy,” the statement continued. “During this period, production of the Nick Cannon Radio show will pause. Skyview Networks values all communities and faiths and we expect all programs and personalities we syndicate to adhere to these principles.”

Meanwhile, Rabbi Abraham Cooper — who had a conversation with Nick earlier this week and explained to him why Jewish people may be offended by his statements, told TMZ that Nick is seeking enlightenment. Cooper said that he spoke to Nick on the phone and said that he was apologetic upfront but more importantly, he listened when Cooper explained how his comments were hateful and harmful. Cooper said that Nick admitted that he was wrong and requested another discussion in order to gain more knowledge. The two met last night (July 16th). 

CHRIS EVANS GIFTING CAPTAIN AMERICA SHIELD TO REAL HERO: Chris Evans is so moved by the now-viral story of Bridger Walker saving his sister from a dog attack, and suffering a horrific injury in the process, he’s gifting his Captain America shield to him. “Pal, you’re a hero, what you did was so brave, so selfless — your sister is so lucky to have you as a big brother. Your parents must be so proud of you,” Evans said in a video message that the family shared Wednesday. “Keep being the man you are, we need people like you. Hang in there, I know recovery might be tough, but based on what I’ve seen, I don’t think there’s much that can slow you down.”
