The original TMZ report seemed to be originate from Yolanda herself, leading Zayn to shoot back by saying, “In an effort to protect that space for her I agreed to not contest claims arising from an argument I had with a family member of my partner’s who entered our home while my partner was away several weeks ago. This was and still should be a private matter but it seems for now there is divisiveness and despite my efforts to restore us to a peaceful family environment that will allow for me to co-parent my daughter in a manner in which she deserves, this has been ‘leaked’ to the press.” That’s gonna make for an awkward holiday dinner…

-Succession’s Brian Cox has a new book out, and expresses some Logan Roy-esque opinions about his fellow celebs, including David Bowie (“A skinny kid, and not a particularly good actor. He made a better pop star, that much is for certain”), Quentin Tarantino (“I find his work meretricious. It’s all surface. Plot mechanics in place of depth. Style where there should be substance. I walked out of Pulp Fiction…That said, if the phone rang, I’d do it”), and Johnny Depp (“I mean, Edward Scissorhands. Let’s face it, if you come on with hands like that and pale, scarred-face make-up, you don’t have to do anything. And he didn’t. And subsequently, he’s done even less”). People he praises include Keanu Reeves (“A ‘seeker’ who has ‘actually become rather good over the years'”) and the late Alan Rickman (“One of the sweetest, kindest, nicest and most incredibly smart men I’ve ever met. Prior to acting he’d been a graphic designer and he brought the considered, laser-like precision of that profession to his work”).

It’s left me with the most horrendous shopping addiction because I was shopping on a company card and now I’m just shopping. And there’s no company card anymore.”
-I’m very glad that the Beautiful Disasters adaptation is getting some bad press. I still can’t believe this was green lighted.
