KYLIE JENNER: Bodyguard Denies He's Stormi's Father
Kylie Jenner's former bodyguard has put the rumors to rest. He's not Stormi's father.
After fans thought they saw a resemblance between the baby girl and Tim Chung, the security guard hit Instagram to release a statement. He wrote, "I am a very private person and would normally never answer to gossip and stories that are so ridiculous that they are laughable. Out of deep respect for Kylie, [Travis Scott], their daughter together and their families, I would like to set the record straight that my interactions with Kylie and her family have been limited in strictly a professional capacity only. There is no story here and I ask that the media no longer include me in any narrative that is incredibly disrespectful to their family."
For the record, rapper Travis Scott is the father.
ROYAL WEDDING: Dress Code
If you're attending a royal wedding watch party Saturday, you might try and abide by the dress code required of those attending the real deal at Windsor Castle.
To begin with, only the wedding party is allowed to wear white. Members of the Royal Family must not have colorful nail polish. Only clear or neutral colors allowed.
Women are required to cover their shoulders. Hemlines must be below the knee. Women are expected to wear tights or hose. And because Queen Elizabeth II has a pet peeve about wedges, that style of shoe is forbidden in her presence -- and especially at the Royal Wedding.
If you remember the 2011 Royal Wedding, hats and “fascinators” are all the rage. Women are expected to accessorize with headwear. A British etiquette expert explained (quote) “You can't go to the Royal Wedding without a hat. A fascinator is a small headpiece. It covers part of the head whereas a hat covers the full head.”
Rules for the men are short and simple: a tuxedo with tails or their military uniform. (Entertainment Tonight)
The brother of reality star Lisa Vanderpump was found dead of a suspected drug overdose, according to Britain's Daily Mail. The body of 59-year-old Mark Vanderpump, who worked as a DJ, was discovered at his home in Gloucestershire, England on April 30th.

LETHAL WEAPON: Seann William Scott to Replace Star
Lethal Weapon is getting a new season and a new star.
FOX has renewed the action drama series for a third season, but ditched star Clayne Crawford, who played Martin Riggs. He'll be replaced by American Pie's Seann William Scott. He'll play Damon Wayans’ new partner.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Crawford’s contract wasn't picked up because of him "exhibiting a pattern of toxic behavior on the set and that there is video and audio evidence of such behavior."
Sources say several crew members even quit over his actions.
Crawford denies the claims, saying he takes “great pride in treating everyone in life with dignity and kindness.”
BROOKLYN NINE-NINE: Saved by NBC
Brooklyn Nine-Nine has been saved.
The comedy, which was canceled on Thursday by FOX, was picked up by NBC the next day.
Producers had been in talks with Hulu, but the streaming service passed on the Andy Samberg police comedy.
Chairman of NBC Entertainment Robert Greenblatt said, “Ever since we sold this show to FOX I’ve regretted letting it get away, and it’s high time it came back to its rightful home. [Producers] Mike Schur [and] Dan Goor, and Andy Samberg grew up on NBC and we’re all thrilled that one of the smartest, funniest, and best cast comedies in a long time will take its place in our comedy line-up. I speak for everyone at NBC, here’s to the Nine-Nine!”
The sixth season will have 13 episodes.
After word of the cancellation hit the Internet, fans took to social media to share hashtags like #SaveB99 and #RenewB99. Apparently, it worked.

HOWIE DAY: Another Arrest
“Collide” singer Howie Day was arrested for assaulting his girlfriend last month at Washington's Sea-Tac airport, according to TMZ.
A police report says Day flew into a rage when she came to pick him up, screaming at her, pushing her and slamming the hatch of her car. His girlfriend of eight years, Carrie Pencek, told them he can behave like that when he's intoxicated. He was charged with one count of fourth-degree assault, to which he pleaded not guilty. He’s scheduled to appear in court later this month.
It's the latest in a series of misbehavior dating back to 2004 that has derailed a once-promising career.
- In 2004, he was fined for locking a female fan in his tour bus and destroying another's cellphone.
- In 2006, he was sentenced to a year's probation after verbally abusing a flight crew while under the influence of alcohol and sleeping pills. He went through rehab during that period.
- In 2014, he filed for bankruptcy and ended up losing the publishing rights and royalty income for his master recordings at a bankruptcy auction.
- TMZ reports that at the time of last month's arrest, police found a previous domestic violence arrest "for allegedly punching Pencek in the face, but it never went anywhere because she wouldn't cooperate."
