November 3, 2017

Paris Jackson: ‘Someone from above’ caused Williams’s fall

Paris Jackson, 19, took to Twitter on Friday to blast talk-show host Wendy Williams. Hours after Williams, 53, fainted Tuesday during the live taping of her syndicated show “Wendy,” her account tweeted a link to “the latest Jackson family drama,” reports Page Six. Not taking this lying down, Jackson tweeted Thursday, “Your obsession is a little unhealthy, maybe even toxic. I’m sure there are plenty of qualified professional psychiatrists you can seek out.” Jackson continued: “Looks like someone from above had enough of her bulls—t and decided to clock her for not keeping his kids’ names outta her mouth o well.” This feud’s been going on for some time. In January, Williams remarked that Jackson hardly deserved her Rolling Stone cover. Ouch!

Rapper Fetty-wap drag-races, snags DUI

Rapper Fetty Wap has been arrested and charged with drunken driving after drag racing on a New York City highway early Friday morning, the Associated Press reports. Fetty Wap, aka Willie Maxwell, was spotted speeding on Brooklyn’s Gowanus Expressway just after 1 a.m., obviously racing another vehicle.

Special thanks for great service

An Ohio waitress is $1,000 richer, courtesy of model Chrissy Teigen, 31. Mikayla Scott says she was working at the Centerville Outback Steakhouse on Oct. 27 when Teigen, her daughter and several others came in. The 21-year-old was nervous serving the model, but discovered she didn’t need to be. Tiegen left her the biggest tip of her life. “I was like, ’Oh my god, praise the Lord,” Scott said, according to the Associated Press. Scott applied the money to fixing her car, and reportedly shared some with co-workers.
