This is so, so awful.
Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner should still be on cloud nine celebrating their recent (second) wedding in France right now, but instead, they are mourning the loss of their beloved dog, Waldo. The Alaskan Klee Kai was struck by a car and killed while out on a walk in New York City this week, according to TMZ.
The incident actually happened back on Wednesday, according to reports. It took place on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, where Waldo was being walked by a dog walker. Apparently, the dog was spooked by a pedestrian at some point during the walk, broke free of its leash, and ran into the street — where it was struck and killed by a vehicle. Joe and Sophie haven’t publicly commented on the news yet, but a rep for Joe reportedly called the incident a “freak accident.”
Apparently, this all came to light in the news only after Joe and Sophie went to the police on Friday to file a report on the incident; it’s unclear at this point what the report is about specifically, and/or what the police are investigating. In a heartbreaking twist, however, the couple apparently informed police that they delayed filing the report because they visited a therapist due to being “so torn up” over the incident. Honestly, we can’t even imagine something like this, so it’s understandable that the pair is taking it so hard.
They first got Waldo back in April 2018 as a companion dog for their first pup, Porky. The dogs were born in the same litter, and lived one hell of a life together with Joe and Sophie right up until the untimely, terrible death here. Joe has since been seeing walking with Porky — he was spotted out on Thursday with the little pup — and both he and Sophie were spotted on Friday night at a music video shoot visibly emotional with Porky close by their side. (FYI, you can see those pics HERE.)
It’s awful to imagine something like this happening to such a beloved member of the family like a dog. We can’t even begin to think what Joe and Sophie have been going through. A dog (any pet, really) is a member of the family, and to lose one like this… ugh. Our hearts are truly broken for the newlyweds, Porky, and everyone else that was close to poor little Waldo.

Wow, some folks are so salty on social media about Leonardo DiCaprio‘s love life!
They care so much about who he’s climbing on, you’d think it was that door from the end of Titanic! Ha!
The 44-year-old’s latest lady friend is the beautiful and talented Camila Morrone, a model and actress whom you may have seen in playing the daughter of Bruce Willis in last year’s Death Wish remake (though perhaps it’s more likely you didn’t based on that film’s box office).
Innerestingly, IRL Camila is actually the sorta stepdaughter to Leo’sOnce Upon A Time In Hollywood costar Al Pacino, who dated her mother for about a decade.
It seems the 22-year-old has classic Hollywood on the brain (which makes sense as her man’s movie premieres this week) because she shared a pair of photos of Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall on her Instagram on Thursday with the awed caption:
“A love like this”
Well, it didn’t take long for some haters to come out of the woodwork to say some truly nasty things to Camila, mostly regarding what they’d decided her own love was like.
Here are a few of the icky comments people left her:
“Something you and leo wish y’all had”
“I can’t believe what a dork she is posting something like this. It’s obv a comparison to herself and Leo. Girl, where are your friends?? Somebody stop her.”
“She really working hard for Leo to marry her 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂”
“Lol yeah that’s her icon because Lauren liked her men 25 years older, famous and ultra rich just like Camila likes her Leonardo ❤️👼🏼”
“Leo only cares about your body”
“You only have a couple more years before he dumps you girl! Collect your bag 😍”
Can you believe people posted that stuff ON HER POST?? Purposely for her to see??
Well, she decided she wasn’t just going to ignore it this time. She took to her IG Story to hit back… from the high road of course.
“Good morning people and happy Friday,
I just read some of the comments on my Instagram and… my God, people are so mean and full of anger with people that they know nothing about!
I guess I just hope on this Friday that people learn to live with a little less hatred and place their time and interests elsewhere, because living without hatred feels… pretty good.”
To be fair, we’re sure living with Leo feels pretty good, too! LOLz!
The haters may just have to get used to Camila.
Just this week, a source told People the couple are getting “pretty serious” and Leo already introduced her to his parents “long ago.”
Wow! We’ll just have to see if it lasts as long as Bogey and Bacall, who began dating when he was 45 and she just 19 — and stayed together until his death 13 years later.

Playtime has never been a more lucrative career.
A 6-year-old South Korean girl purchased a five-story, multi-million dollar property in Seoul earlier this year — all thanks to her YouTube empire.
According to reports, Boram (picture above) bought the 9.5 billion Korean won ($8 million) pad in the suburb of Gangnam through the Boram Family company, which was set up by her parents. The internet star boasts over 30 million subscribers between her two popular YouTube accounts: a toy review channel with 13.6 million subscribers and a video blog account with 17.6 million subscribers.
For the most part, Boram’s content is probably what you’d expect it to be. One of her most popular videos follows the child making instant noodles using a plastic toy kitchen and then animatedly eating them for the camera.
But not all of Boram’s content is parent approved. In 2017, non-governmental organization Save the Children received complaints from critics who feared the YouTuber’s videos were promoting naughty behavior.
Citing staged clips that showed Boram stealing money from her father’s wallet and appearing to drive cars on the road, the organization argued that Boram’s videos could negatively impact the emotional and moral development of impressionable viewers.
Boram’s videos were reported to the police by Save the Children, and her parents were ordered by the Seoul Family Court to complete a counseling course designed to prevent child abuse. The questionable videos have since been removed from her page.
She may be the most controversial kid millionaire YouTuber in the game, but Boram isn’t the only one making big bucks out of playtime.
As we reported, the highest earning YouTuber last year was 7-year-old Ryan Kaji, the star of Ryan ToysReview, who earned an estimated $22 million through his channel in 2018. Since launching the channel in 2015, Ryan has attracted over 20.8 million subscribers with videos showing him reviewing toys and games, playing with his mom and dad, and performing a few fun “challenges.”
Another prolific toy reviewer is 5-year-old Tydus, who appears on his family’s YouTube channel Trav and Cor, which has 3.1 million subscribers.
There are several ways in which YouTubers can make bank. Many big time vloggers take a cut of the ads that play on their videos and partner with brands to sell merch or include products in their videos. In Boram’s case, she sometimes links to the products featured in her video reviews.
It’s turning into a YouTuber’s world, Perezcious readers… whether you like and subscribe to it or not.

Kim Kardashian West can’t be stopped!
The KUWTK reality TV star and future lawyer quietly returned to the White House on Thursday; there was no official announcement this time, but she was spotted by media members and guests as she arrived at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
However, it’s unclear exactly whom she met with — or what exactly she was there to do!
This time there was a special guest making her debut on the political scene: North West!
The 6-year-old photography prodigy was along for the ride, as was Kim’s 85-year-old grandmother MJ. Something tells us they were there more in the tourist capacity than arguing for prison reform.
While we don’t know Kim’s exact reason for being back at the White House, she did JUST advocate for A$AP Rocky‘s release from Swedish prison. As you likely recall, Kim and Kanye West petitioned President Donald Trump to do something about the rapper’s weeks-long detention before charges were ever filed in his ongoing Swedish assault case. And while her advocacy in this case may have actually backfired, Kim’s legal firepower continues to grow the more she throws herself into studying the law.
It’s far from the first time Kim has advocated for a reduction in prison time, of course. She’s worked several times now with President Trump and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, on pardoning prisoners who had been sentenced to decades in prison over non-violent drug offenses.
She’s visited the White House a number of times already — so perhaps her visit there again on Thursday had something to do with her legal advocacy for a similar prisoner set, though we don’t know anything for sure.
As for Trump’s White House, there’s plenty of controversy to go around even without a head-turner like Kim K in the house. Of note: also on Thursday, Trump’s Attorney General, William Barr, issued a directive to the media indicating the federal government will reinstate the death penalty.
Perhaps Kim could be in our nation’s capital fighting to argue against the death penalty and petition Trump to avoid killing convicts???
Whatever has Kim (and North!) in the White House, we’re certain she’s working hard and advocating for those less fortunate, which she’s continuously proven of herself as she continues to train for a legal career.
What do y’all think about all this, Perezcious readers?! Why is Kim at the White House?? Sound OFF with your thoughts and theories in the comments (below)!!!

Las Vegas did not hit the jackpot when it came to unwanted visitors this summer.
Locals have been hit with an invasion of grasshoppers over the past few days, with sidewalks and windows covered in blankets of the sprightly insects.
Footage of the infestation has gone viral, showing tourists trying to make it through what looks one of the final plagues of Egypt. Ch-ch-check it out (below).
Like we said, v apocalyptic.
But seeing as the Bellagio fountains haven’t turned into blood (yet), an angry God *probably* isn’t behind this calamity.
So, why is Sin City crawling with these bugs?
Jeff Knight, the entomologist for Nevada’s Agriculture Department, held an impromptu press conference on Thursday to set the record straight, telling alarmed locals that the infestation is due to an unseasonably wet winter and spring in the region.
Knight explained the particularly wet seasons earlier this year led to a “build up” of pallid-winged grasshoppers in Southern Nevada and Arizona, which caused the desert dwellers to migrate north to find new stomping (or… hopping?) grounds. He said:
“When we have a wet winter or spring, these things build up. A lot of times, when populations get too big, it triggers the insects to move to find new areas… The ones that started down probably in Laughlin or southern Nevada, or even Arizona, are the ones that are moving up to central Nevada. So a couple hundred miles.”
Knight added that, while it seems like fresh hell for Sin City, these hoppers have visited the Strip a handful of times over the past 50 years.
The agriculture expert said that although the scene looks like something straight out of a horror movie, people shouldn’t be scared of the hoppers because they’re harmless to humans, adding:
“They don’t carry any diseases. They don’t bite. They’re not even one of the species that we consider a problem. They probably won’t cause much damage in a yard.”
The hoppers will probably mate during their Vegas pit stop, but Knight said conditions in the city “aren’t right” for any eggs to make it to hatching season this fall.
Residents will only have to put up with the unwelcome visitors for a few weeks, when Knight estimates they’ll hop out of town and continue north.
In the meantime, locals can impede the insects by switching off ultraviolet lights outside and replace them with a low UV or amber light instead. Or, you can “just scare them out of the way,” Knight suggests.
Maybe also keep a lookout for boils and frogs… just in case!

Nicki Minaj may have spilled some SERIOUS tea on her new track with Chance the Rapper!
On her latest collab titled Zanies and Fools, the Super Bass rapper seemingly confirms she is both engaged to AND expecting a baby with her registered sex offender man, Kenneth Petty!
She spits in her verse:
“He the Clyde to my Bonnie, ’bout to walk down the aisle and be a mommy / Ooh, I remember when I cried like, ‘Why me?’ / Now I wouldn’t exchange my life for Armani‘“
LISTEN to the evidence (below):
Of course, this is not the first time the MC has hinted she and her controversial boyfriend have taken the next steps in their relationship.
During an episode of Queen Radio in February, Miz Minaj joked:
“I’m pregnant… They really gon’ believe me — my manager’s face! He was about to die!”
Last month, the hip-hop artist dished on her Apple Beats 1 show the two obtained a marriage license, explaining:
“We did get our marriage license… I think I have what I was striving for, just happiness. It was so hard to get to a happy place. Now that I’m there, I don’t want to compromise that for anyone or anything.”
Additionally, Nicki recently tweeted she did not drink alcohol during the pair’s dinner date — leading many to believe she is preggers. She wrote on Twitter last month:
“For the record; that was iced tea in that lobsterita glass. No alcohol was consumed in the making of our dinner date.”
After Zanies and Fools was released, the Barbz could NOT contain their excitement! They penned on social media:
“THIS IS NOT A DRILL NICKI IS PREGNANT AND SHES GETTING MARRIED”
“OMG AT THE END OF ZANIES AND FOOLS NICKI SAID SHE WAS PREGNANT LISTEN TO THE WHOLE THING LIKE 10 TIMES AND YOULL HEAR IT”
“if nicki minaj is actually pregnant im about to be born again see yall in 9 months”
Nicki and Kenneth first went public in December 2018.
He was previously convicted of attempted rape in the first degree back in the 1990s after an incident in 1994 where he allegedly attempted to sexually assault a 16-year-old girl in New York City.
Kenneth was sentenced to between 18 and 54 months in state prison at the time of his 1995 conviction, though it is unclear how much time he actually served.
Petty was also charged with manslaughter back in 2006 after allegedly shooting a man in an unrelated incident.

A new claim has surfaced in the undying legal battle between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard.
According to The Blast, the Pirates of the Caribbean star alleges his ex-wife “put a cigarette” out on the actor’s right cheek after she allegedly threw a bottle at him which severed his finger while they were in Australia in 2015.
The latest claim comes in an amended response as part of his defamation suit against News Group Newspapers Ltd, which owns the British tabloid The Sun, over a 2018 article that labeled the star a “wife-beater.”
Depp’s team also submitted a photo of the actor, obtained by The Blast, that was purportedly taken in an Australian hospital a few hours after the alleged incident took place. The photo (which you can see HERE) shows the performer laying on a hospital gurney with his hand bandaged and what his lawyers claim is the cigarette burn on his cheek.
Adam Waldman, Depp’s attorney, said this new allegation was filed in response to The Sun’s defense of Heard’s “abuse hoaxes,” and served as “more evidence” of the actress’ “vicious violence” against the 56-year-old.
He explained in a statement:
“Today we replied in court to the Sun’s cut and paste ‘defense’ of Amber Heard’s latest abuse hoaxes. And we detailed more evidence of Amber Heard’s vicious violence against Mr. Depp, who was the actual domestic violence victim in the relationship… And there is more evidence to come. Yet Ms. Heard remains propped up by hoax-enablers, including Rupert Murdoch’s tabloid the Sun. Does the #metoo movement care about male victims too?”
Heard’s team, unsurprisingly, categorically denies the cigarette burn allegation. Her attorney Eric George said in a statement to the outlet:
“This allegation is absurd, offensive and categorically untrue. This photograph proves nothing – apart from the fact that Johnny Depp is desperate to throw out any outlandish allegation to deflect attention from his physical and ongoing psychological abuse of Amber Heard.”
Per the publication, Depp claims the fight began after his then-wife spoke with his attorneys about his “intention to enter into a post-nuptial agreement” — which, he claimed, caused Heard “to go into a rage.”
The actor alleges he had been evading Heard throughout the day but ultimately, after not having a drink for over a year, he “sought to avoid Ms. Heard by going to the downstairs bar in the house. She followed him, screaming at him abusively.”
That’s when the actor claims “he poured himself a vodka and drank it,” which allegedly caused Heard to throw a bottle at him and miss.
He alleges he then had another drink before Heard threw the second bottle, which resulted in Depp’s notorious severed finger. At that point, Depp claims Heard “then put a cigarette out on [Depp’s] right cheek.”
While Depp admits he then “wrote on a mirror and walls in blood and oil paint,” he says he was in shock at the time. He denies Heard’s allegations that he urinated in the house.
What do U think about this latest allegation? Will it bode well in Depp’s legal battle? And what about the supposed “evidence” that’s yet to come!? Share your thoughts in the comments.

As Drake tells the partygoers in the opening moments of this music video, “please, enter at your own risk.”
The rapper faces off against Chris Brown in the video for their collab, No Guidance, and it’s quite the showdown. Essentially playing out like a short film, the nine-minute video contains multiple scene breaks filled with digs like:
“You the type to Instagram your breakfast in the morning.”
What follows is a “dance battle” between the two music icons, with Breezy dishing out his air-tight choreography before Drizzy attempts to hit back with what could be best described as his rendition of Jim Carrey’s “The Claw” in Liar, Liar.
Though Drake loses the battle, the video ends on an amicable note, with Brown saying:
“Light skinned n****s need to stick together.”
While it’s all fun and games in the video, the two have actually had real animosity toward each other in the past.
Back in June 2012, Drake and Brown were allegedly involved in an altercation at WIP nightclub in New York City — reportedly stemming from their relationships with Rihanna.
Rumor has it the In My Feelings rapper sent the Forever singer a rude note in the club, which led to them allegedly throwing bottles at each other. Breezy was hurt in the brawl and posted photos of his injury on his Instagram page.
The following year, Drake made his feelings about Brown clear in an interview with GQ, saying:
“I hear he has everything he could want now. I don’t want my name to be synonymous with that guy’s name. I really don’t. I wish we could sit down, just like you and me are right now, and talk it out man-to-man. But that’s not going to happen.”
It did happen, apparently, as RiRi’s exes were spotted in the studio together in July 2014.
While they continued to shoot digs at each other, the two publicly made amends by 2018. Brown surprised fans when he decided to promote Drake’s 2018 album Scorpion on his Instagram Stories, which, in turn, prompted Drizzy to follow his former nemesis on Instagram.
The pair then shocked the hip-hop world months later when Brown brought Drake out on stage at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Making it clear their feud had ended, Drizzy told fans he thought Breezy is “one of the most talented human beings on the planet.”
Now, it appears the two are in a place where they can poke fun at their beef. Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to see it all go down.
