Days after a judge denied Rob Kardashian’s motion to enforce a previous settlement deal with Blac Chyna, the two apparently hammered out a new deal just before jury selection could begin for their trial. Blac Chyna was suing Rob for seven figures for posting nude photos and videos of her on social media in July of 2017. Potential jurors were lined up outside the courthouse but were dismissed since they settled, according to Page Six. No details of the deal have been released. Blac Chyna lost the court battle last month against the Kardashian-Jenners when the court decided they didn’t defame her. Maybe she’ll fare better with this settlement.

Back in November, Dave Chappelle visited his old high school, Duke Ellington School of the Arts in D.C., where he took a lot of heat for his jokes about the trans community. Dave asked both those who heckled him and his supporters to raise money for the school, and if his opponents raised more money, he’d forgo the honor of the building being named after him. Well, his supporters raised more money. The school was set to rename a building in his honor, calling it the “Dave Chappelle Theater,” but Dave ended up turning it down, according to TMZ. The building instead will be called "Theater of Artistic Freedom & Expression."

Elon Musk's transgender daughter has gone to court to change her name and to end her relationship with her father now that she’s 18. Formerly known as Xavier Alexander Musk, she will now be known as Vivian Jenna Wilson.

Kelly Clarkson’s ex-husband, Brandon Blackstock, has finally moved out of Kelly’s Montana ranch, two years after their split. An insider says that Brandon wanted to fight the court order which stipulated he vacate the property by June 1st, but he was talked out of it. While he’s now gone from the property, sources say he’s still “a constant thorn in her side,” considering the $115,000 per month in spousal support she’s paying him through January 2024 and the $45,601 a month in child support he’s getting. Kelly has primary custody of their two children, but they spend one weekend with him every month, according to Us Magazine.

The investigation as to whether or not Meghan Markle bullied the staff at Buckingham Palace has come to an end, but the Palace has no plans to release the findings.

“Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” star Lauryn "Pumpkin" Shannon debuted her newborn twins yesterday. Her new baby boy and girl join her two older children, daughter Ella, 4, and her son, Bentley. Of course, her mother, Mama June, had something to say - "She needs another kid like she needs a hole in her head.” Let’s not forget that Lauryn currently has custody of her younger sister, Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson. But Mama June spun that, saying, "People don't understand the custody thing. It's not that somebody 'lost custody.' In the state of Georgia, you do temporary guardianship every year, and [Alana] had been living with Pumpkin in my addiction.” She does at least appreciate Lauryn taking care of Alana while she can’t.
