Jamie Spears is not only stepping down as Britney Spears’ conservator, he's telling the judge to go ahead and end the whole thing. TMZ reports that Jamie said if the court sees fit for her to hire her own lawyer, then “this Court has recognized that Ms. Spears has both the capacity and capability to identify, engage, and instruct counsel of her own choice, on her own, without the assistance of the Conservator or the Court. If Ms. Spears has the capability to engage counsel on her own, she presumably has capacity to handle other contractual and business matters." Jamie added he only wants what is best for Britney, but if she wants out of the conservatorship and believes she can handle her own life, he feels she should get that chance. A judge is set to rule on the petition September 29th. Sounds like he is setting Brit up for a fall and is gearing up for an “I told you so” moment down the road.
You sue me and I’ll sue you. TikTok queen Charli D’Amelio might sue a photographer who accused her of stealing his photos for her book “Essentially Charli” and making “millions” off of his work. He says the star owes him, and now Charli’s legal team is reportedly threatening legal action against Mr. Doolittle. In a recent YouTube video, Mr. Doolittle claims he got a call from her camp telling him to take down his posts and to shut his mouth about the theft claims.
BTS is being recognized for their many Guinness World Records. The K-Pop band has just been added to Guinness World Records 2022 Hall of Fame. BTS earns the honor thanks to landing 23 records, including most Twitter engagements for a music group, most weeks at number one on Billboard's digital song sales chart, with "Dynamite” at 18 weeks, most followed group on Instagram, and many many more. And in more BTS news, their song “Butter” returns to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart for a 10th non-consecutive week thanks to the latest remix, featuring Megan Thee Stallion.
It also tops the Digital Songs Sales chart for a 14th week and is officially the 2021 Song of the Summer, finishing on top “Billboard’s” Song of the Summer chart, where it held the number one position all season. I hope they gave them a big enough section in the hall of fame for more awards.
It looks like Scott Disick, 38, and Amelia Gray Hamlin, 20, have called it quits. A source told Us Weekly, “Amelia was the one who ended things.” The split comes a week after Scott allegedly sent a DM to Younes Bendjima, who dated his ex Kourtney Kardashian, commenting on Kourtney and her new boyfriend, Travis Barker. But, a source insists the breakup “wasn’t related to the messages Scott sent about Kourtney. This breakup was coming regardless.” Another insider told E! News, “They needed a break from one another, that was clear. They are in different places and trying to figure out if it's time to move on and if they are really done."

Jamie Spears is not only stepping down as Britney Spears' conservator, he's telling the judge to go ahead and end the whole thing. What’s even more interesting is that he said if there’s no conservatorship, then Brit’s co-conservator, Jodi Montgomery, should be released from duty. He also says it should happen without a psychological evaluation, which Britney doesn't want anyway.
John Mulaney, comedian and writer for “Saturday Night Live,” has had an eventful year to say the least. He went to rehab twice, got divorced, and sparked a romance with Olivia Munn. And now, he revealed on "Late Night with Seth Meyers" last night that they're expecting a child together. He said, “I got into this relationship that has been really beautiful, with someone incredible who has dealt with the non-coked-up version of me. That’s been very incredible and she’s kind of held my hand through that hell, and we are having a baby together. I’m gonna be a dad. We’re both really really happy.”
It's official - Kylie Jenner has confirmed that she and Travis Scott are expecting baby number two. Of course, this isn't a total shock as we reported this a few weeks ago. Kylie posted a video to Instagram showing how everyone from her man to her own mom reacted to the news, even little Stormi who seems excited. No word on a due date, but judging by the quick looks at her tummy, she's well along the way.
Mel C is joining "Dancing with the Stars" for the upcoming 30th season. TMZ has pictures of her going into the studio. For the record, Mel C is the third Spice Girl to be on the show. Mel B did it first back in 2007, and then Baby Spice (Emma Bunton) made a cameo.
Tiffany Haddish talked with Extra about her new movie and her relationship of 2 years (has it been than long?) with Common. When asked how things were going between the two of them, Tiffany said, “I’m happy where I am right now, I’m enjoying it. I’m not going to put nothing extra on it. If he want to marry me, he can get me an apartment building. Give me a duplex, an eight-plex, or something! Homegirl will be, ‘What?! I thought you were engaged, where are your carats?’ ‘Carats? Girl, please, I got units…’ This is going to appreciate over time. The ring might lose its value, but land, now that right there… I want a deed — that’s hot!”

Britney Spears’ father Jamie filed a petition in Los Angeles Superior Court yesterday to end her 13-years long conservatorship admitting that “the conservatorship has helped Ms. Spears get through a major life crisis, rehabilitate and advance her career, and put her finances and her affairs in order. But recently, things have changed. Ms. Spears is now outspoken in her frustration with the level of control imposed by a conservatorship, and has pleaded with this Court to 'let her have her life back.'" Jamie is willing to end it all for her, but is he doing it just to prove she can’t control her own life?

The first official trailer drops tomorrow if you don’t want to go through the 180,000 variations today.
Tori Spelling is flattered everyone is comparing her to Khloe Kardashian. TMZ asked the former “Beverly Hills, 90210” star about it and she said she’s honored because Khloe is gorgeous. When asked if she intentionally tried to look like her, she didn’t answer. Tori not only looks like her now, she’s dressing like her too. Tori was spotted in a denim jumpsuit nearly identical to one Khloe wore last year.
"Don't Be Tardy" star Kim Zolciak-Biermann's daughter Brielle Biermann had double jaw surgery a couple weeks ago to fix her TMJ and a significant overbite due to sucking her thumb for years. She says that’s why she had major biting and breathing issues. Brielle posted pics from her hospital room and wrote, "Have you ever thought about what it's like to not be able to bite into pizza? or omg trying to bite into an onion on a burger? impossible for me. I had to use my tongue to help me chew and almost choked every time I ate." See the pics at tmz.com. Thankfully, she’s on the mend, and if they happened to include a little nip here or an implant there, then good for her. But if she comes out looking like Khloe Kardashian too, then we’ll know the truth.
