KHLOE KARDASHIAN: Early Contractions May Have Been Spurred by Cheating Vid


Reports of her baby daddy's infidelity may have forced Khloe Kardashian into giving birth prematurely.

TMZ reports the reality star starting experience early contractions just hours after videos surfaced of Cavs star Tristan Thompson hooking up with other women.

She's not due until late April, but the gossip blog says "it looks like the baby is coming soon."

Sources say Kris Jenner flew out to Cleveland Wednesday morning to be by her daughter's side, and Kim will jet off Thursday.

The fam is said to be "extremely upset" over the revelations about Tristan. They're not the only ones. The power forward, who played a game Wednesday night in Cleveland, was jeered by the home crowd.


KEVIN SPACEY: Sexual Assault Case Under Review


The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office is reviewing a sexual assault case against Kevin Spacey, says The Hollywood Reporter.

According to a statement, the case involves "events" that took place in October 1992 in West Hollywood with a male adult.

The former star of House of Cards has been accused of sexual assault by several men. Authorities in the U.S. and England have both opened criminal investigations into the allegations. So far, no charges have been against Spacey.

Actor Anthony Rapp was the first person to accuse Spacey of sexual misconduct last year.


BILL COSBY: Witness Calls Him a "Serial Rapist"


Three of Bill Cosby's accusers took the stand today (Wednesday) in the comedian's sex assault retrial.

Chelan Lasha, Janice Baker-Kinney and Heidi Thomas all testified that the former TV dad drugged and raped them.

Thomas called Cosby a "serial rapist."

Through her tears, Lasha confronted the star directly, saying, “You remember, don’t you, Mr. Cosby?” She told the jurors that after the assault Cosby woke her up by clapping his hands and saying, "Daddy says wake up." As she regained consciousness, she told him, "Dr. Huxtable, what are you doing to me?"

At the center of the retrial is Andrea Constand, who says Cosby assaulted her in 2004. She and model Janice Dickinson, who claims she was raped by Cosby in 1982, are also both expected to testify.

2018 ROCK HALL PREVIEW: Bon Jovi   


Bon Jovi are headed into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, following their second nomination, this Saturday at the Public Auditorium in Cleveland.

Jon Bon Jovi has long felt they should have been nominated in 2008, the first year they were eligible, and elected for induction when first nominated in 2011.

In an interview with Billboard he said, "There were moments when I was cranky because we felt that we met the prerequisites and we were still making number-one records and doing and being... The first time when we were nominated [2011] and ultimately didn't get in, there were a lot of conversations about were we legitimately not voted in, was there a little bit of covert action going on, and we'll never know. But afterwards they installed this public vote... That didn't exist for us the first time, and I think as a result of us not getting in there were conversations about how [the Rock Hall] is about bands of the people. So the fans have spoken." And they did, registering more than a million votes.

Though some people still lump Bon Jovi in with the hair bands of the '80s, you can't argue with their success.

  • Over 100 million records sold worldwide -- more than such inductees as Rod Stewart, R.E.M., Van Halen and Tom Petty
  • Slippery When Wet and New Jersey are among the biggest-selling albums of all time
  • Platinum albums in three separate decades
  • Still a top touring act

They will be inducted by Howard Stern and will reunite with former members Richie Sambora and Alec John Such for a performance. And, like fellow inductees The Moody Blues, who had original member Denny Laine included as an inductee after Steve Van Zandt made a stink, their longtime road bassist Hugh McDonald, who is not an official member, will also be inducted.

Rounding out the Class of 2018 are Dire Straits, The Cars, Nina Simone and Sister Rosetta Tharpe. Highlights of this year's ceremony will air on HBO on May 5th.


ELTON JOHN: Wedding Invitation Hasn't Arrived


Elton John is still waiting for his Royal Wedding invitation.

The rock icon and humanitarian has cleared time around the May 19th nuptials, but has yet to hear anything official.

Not only would he like to attend, but Elton tells Britain's Mirror tabloid he'd be happy to perform for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. "If they asked me to -- but I haven’t been asked to the wedding yet."

Elton was a close friend of Harry's mother, the late Princess Diana.


CHER: No Retirement Plans


Cher has no intention of retiring -- or coming off the road.

She plans to tour again and to renew her Las Vegas residency. Cher tells Scotland's Sunday Post, "There is more to come, but I don’t want to slip into a graceful retirement in Las Vegas. I want to be out there on a world tour to meet as many people as possible... I want to do both at the same time -- stay in Las Vegas and be out there on the road taking the show all over the world."

And if her plate isn't full enough, look for her in this summer's new Mamma Mia! sequel, while her bio-musical The Cher Show has a preview run in Chicago before heading to New York in September. "My life as a musical on Broadway just seems totally crazy, but it is really exciting... Perhaps that sums up my life -- crazy and exciting. And bizarre. That’s probably how my life seems to most people."
