Prince Harry‘s team is calling claims he mishandled Royal funds “deeply offensive.”

Kim Kardashian posted an IG story about Kanye West, citing his bipolar diagnosis and asking for compassion and empathy. It was incredibly well-written and sympathetic, but this part made me fear that she’s still onboard with his presidential run: “Living with bi-polar disorder does not diminish or invalidate his dreams and his creative ideas, no matter how big or unobtainable they may feel to some. That is part of his genius and as we have all witnessed, many of his big dreams have come true.”

-People magazine is reporting that both Kim and Kanye are considering divorce. E! News says the pair have been spending time apart.

Jamie Lynn Spears defended her sister Britney after a commenter posted about her “obvious mental illness.” Jamie replied: “You have no right to assume anything about my sister, and I have NO right to speak about HER health and personal matters.

This is a good piece on how Dave Franco praising three ’90s romcoms (all by white filmmakers) and talking about how he wants to “elevate” the genre ignores the BIPOC voices already refreshing this genre. I don’t know how you can look at the romcom resurgence of the last few years — with movies like Always Be My Maybe, The Big Sick, The Lovebirds, and Crazy Rich Asians — and think you need to jump in and make it better.

-In an interview with Katy Perry, Howard Stern brought up Orlando Bloom‘s nude paddleboating pics from a few years ago. She told him: “It was Europe! We had had a pretty chill time and everywhere we looked, it was like ‘Everybody was naked! It was Europe! It was Italy!’ and I think he wanted to fit in with the locals.”

-Speaking of Orlando Bloom, he confirmed that his missing dog has passed away.

-I’m iffy with Aaron Sorkin joints, but these photos of his new movie The Trial of the Chicago 7 has me intrigued, mostly because the cast is so stacked: Sacha Baron Cohen, Eddie Redmayne, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Frank Langella, and Jeremy Strong.

-There are reports that David Benioff and D.B. Weiss walked away from their Star Wars project in part due because they didn’t want to deal with another “toxic fandom” after their Game of Thrones experience. Something tells me it would have gotten a hell of a lot more toxic under those two.

Kelly Clarkson‘s Hocus Pocus tribute is something to behold.

Aaron Sorkin wrote an open letter to Mark Zuckerberg in the New York Times: “This can’t possibly be the outcome you and I want, to have crazy lies pumped into the water supply that corrupt the most important decisions we make together.” It’s kind of ironic that Sorkin’s Social Network is a big reason people viewed Zuckerberg as a scrappy underdog instead of someone in over his head for wayyyy longer than they should have.

-Ah boo. Meg Ryan and John Mellencamp have reportedly called off their engagement after eight years together.

Tom Hiddleston and Charlie Cox are in the Broadway play Betrayal, and last night they switched costumes from their individual superhero franchises: Tom was dressed as Daredevil and Charlie was Loki. My Twitter feed went berserk.

-If you’re looking for a good read, check out this Terry Crews interview, in which he talks about how his relationship to Hollywood changed since he joined the #MeToo movement. “I walk in the room, and the room is split right down the middle…People don’t understand that Hollywood is a very violent place. The best way to put it is that it’s like a plantation. You use extreme violence. You see a lot of people who never work again. For even speaking up the whole thing is that they cut your head off so that the next person doesn’t speak.”

-Also, I love that all the comments on the article are so supportive. When does the internet ever do that?

-This isn’t a good sign: Deadshot 2 is reportedly getting reshoots based on early audience test screenings.

-Is Kendall Jenner‘s new video for Vogue art? Satire? A real thing that people actually spent money to produce?
