Lewis Hamilton for British GQ! He Wears A Kilt On The Cover To ‘Make Amends’ For Shaming Nephew In Princess Dress!
Lewis Hamilton has posed on the cover of British GQ in a kilt to ‘make amends’ for shaming his nephew for wearing a princess dress. On Christmas Day 2017, the Formula One star sparked outrage when he shared a video on Instagram berating his young nephew Kaiden for wearing a princess dress. The clip opened with Lewis filming himself saying: ‘I’m so sad right now…look at my nephew.’ Lewis then turned the camera on his nephew, who looked over the moon waving a wand and wearing a purple and pink dress with a tulle skirt. He asked his nephew: ‘Why are you wearing a princess dress? Is this what you got for Christmas? Why did you ask for a princess dress for Christmas, boys don’t wear princess dresses!’ Lewis is on the cover of British GQ’s August issue
GQ confirmed they came up with the concept so Lewis could ‘make amends’. The 33-year-old issued an apology for the clip the following day, and six months on, he’s making amends on a global scale. For the August issue of British GQ, Lewis wears a number of kilts and skirts from Tommy Hilfiger, who he is an ambassador for. The magazine came up with the idea, asking Hamilton to either wear a skirt for the cover issue or dress in pink. British GQ’s Instagram said: ‘”I want to make amends” Why Lewis refuses to skirt the issue. At Vogue House we think of the cover as a powerful act of personal conviction, which acknowledges Hamilton’s increasingly brave fashion sense, while offering a very public apology, a multicolored tartan mea culpa.’ The images see Lewis wearing the skirts with an intricate button and embellishment adorned chest piece, as well as garish tartan designs from Hilfiger.
The F1 star admitted he regrets what he said to his nephew. Speaking about the video of his nephew, Lewis said: ‘I still hold regret for it today, but ultimately I think it’s important in life for people to be held accountable for their actions and particularly their words, and I was. ‘I’ve been through quite a lot [of criticism], although there are things I regret in my life, I wouldn’t go back and change them, because if I did I wouldn’t be the man I am today, I wouldn’t have the mindset I have today. ‘I wouldn’t have grown if I hadn’t fallen and stumbled and gotten back up.’

I meant no harm and did not mean to offend anyone at all. I love that my nephew feels free to express himself as we all should. My deepest apologies for my behavior. I realize it is really not acceptable for anyone, no matter where you are from, to marginalize or stereotype anyone.’ ‘I have always been in support of anyone living their life exactly how they wish and I hope I can be forgiven for this lapse in judgement.’ The August issue of British GQ is out 5 July.
#RHoA: Porsha Williams’ Mystery Man Finally Revealed
Porsha Williams revealed that she almost gave up on love before meeting her new man. Porsha Williams has been hinting at a new romance for some time now and internet sleuths may have finally pinned down her mystery beau.
After some dirt digging and tattoo matching, blog reports claim the man is super successful businessman Dennis McKinley. McKinley’s IG account (@workwincelebrate), which is set to private, pegs him as an entrepreneur with businesses across Atlanta and Detroit, including Cru Hookah Lounge and The Original Hot Dog Factory. It also includes a link to his investment website, DetroitEquities.com.
The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star has shared several photos and videos mentioning her new love recently, including a now-deleted birthday post showing a portion of his tattooed chest and wrist. It didn’t take long for folks to figure out who he was.
The revelation comes just weeks after Williams spoke candidly about her struggle finding “the one,” revealing she almost gave up on love altogether. She joked about becoming a lonely cat lady for the rest of her life before falling for McKinley.
“And that’s how it happens — it’s always when you’re not looking anymore,” she said. “It’s when you go ahead and give up … I stopped looking, and he arrived. I gave up, honey, and bought cats online. They on the way, Ima have to cancel the order. I was ready to just let it go.”
The RHOA star also recently debuted a sleek, auburn hair-do on Instagram last week with the caption, “He said he liked it red.” The post was followed by the hashtag #DM, which is speculated to stand for McKinley’s initials.
Now that the cat’s out of the bag, will the smitten 37-year-old finally go public with her new relationship?

#NewMusicVideo from Chaka Khan – Like Sugar
(YKIGS) The Queen of Funk Chaka Khan links up with Major Lazer found Switch for a collaboration on her new single “Like Sugar”. Not only does it represent a scintillating collaboration between two leading talents, but it’s also a statement of intent as the first release from Switch’s new label imprint Diary Records.
While Chaka Khan has returned to touring, new tracks have only emerged sporadically since her 2007 album ‘Funk This’. ‘Like Sugar’ demonstrates that her voice soars with as much power and emotion as it did back when her solo career exploded with ‘I’m Every Woman’, forty years ago. The track is the first taste of Chaka Khan’s long-awaited new album on Diary Records, details of which will be announced soon.
Fittingly, given it’s a Chaka Khan track, the accompanying video has been directed by another iconic female creative in the shape of Kim Gehrig (Calvin Harris, Basement Jaxx). It’s a rare return to the music video world for Gehrig after focusing on award-winning commercial work for clients including Sport England, John Lewis and Honda.
#HipHopNews: Drake’s ‘Scorpion’ Set For Largest Debut Of 2018
Scorpion is set for a record-breaking week.
After surpassing 300 million worldwide streams within its first 24 hours, Drake’s double album is expected to move 870-920,000 units in its first week, reports HITS Daily Double. Of that number, 275-300,000 are traditional sales.
Those numbers would easily put Drake at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, earning him the largest debut of 2018 and the biggest first week sales since Taylor Swift’s Reputation in November (1.2 million).
Drake’s 25-track set has already shattered worldwide one-day records on streaming services. In 24 hours, Scorpion had over 170 million streams on Apple Music and it currently occupies the top 25 spots on Apple’s songs chart.
It also broke Spotify’s opening day global record for album streams with over 132 million streams, besting the previous record holder, Post Malone’s beerbongs & bentleys (78 million).
On Friday, the RIAA declared Drake its Top Digital Song Artist with 142 million to date, a number that will only grow in the coming days.
Queen Bey Stuck on stage in Warsaw Poland!
And Saturday night, at the Warsaw stop of Jay-Z and Beyonce’s “On the Run II” tour, a flying stage that ordinarily enables the singer to hover over the grown got stuck 20 feet in the air, forcing a rather undignified exit.
Stage techs were forced to go old-school to bring Beyonce back down to earth via an ordinary ladder. The band vamped while Beyonce initially appeared reluctant to descend via the ladder — understandable considering her towering heels — but eventually capitulated.
In a fan video (h/t Random Video Serviss) fans can be heard chanting the singer’s name while one yells in a thick Polish accent, “You can do it!” The fan who posted the video wrote: “Beyoncé’s flying stage got broken at the end of the show in Warsaw and she had to walk down on a ladder.
Production Co. in Fatal Tom Cruise Movie Plane Crash Puts Blame Squarely on Deceased Pilot
The production company behind Tom Cruise‘s “American Made” claims Alan Purwin, the pilot they entrusted to fly the plane that would eventually crash and kill two people, lied about his credentials and passed responsibility for the fatal flight off on someone else and now they are suing his estate.
As previously reported, a plane crash on September 11, 2015 killed two of the three men on board; Purwin and Carlos Berl died, Jimmy Lee Garland survived and recovered from his terrible injuries.
The estate for Berl and Garland have filed separate lawsuits over the crash. Berl’s estate has reached a confidential settlement with the insurance company.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, CCP Mena Film Holdings LCC has filed a counter-suit against Purwin’s estate claiming that while Purwin said he was qualified to fly the plane in question, when in fact he was not.
Specifically, Mena claims that Purwin said he had 20,000 hours of flight time in fixed-wing aircraft and rotorcrafts but they believe he had less than 25. They also believe he had never flown the plane in question, an Aerostar 600.
Mena also alleges that their deal with Purwin called for him to be the only one to fly the plane. But on the day of the fatal crash, they claim Purwin instructed Berl to pilot the plane.
The issue of who was flying the plane has been in debate since the accident occurred. Berl’s lawsuit over the crash has claimed Garland was flying, but Garland has denied it, claiming he does not remember what happened.
Mena is countersuing Purwin’s estate for intentional misrepresentation, fraudulent concealment, and false promise. They claim they would not have to defend themselves in this lawsuit if it wasn’t for Purwin’s actions.
Mena is seeking unspecified damages and the case is ongoing.
#RHoNJ: Joe Giudice Deportation Proceedings Have Started
Things are NOT looking so good for Real Housewives of New Jersey star Joe Giudice since he is in deportation proceedings while he remains in federal prison on a 41-month sentence.
Continue on to get all the details on Teresa Giudice’s husband Joe Giudice…
According to the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has lodged a detainer to have Joe Giudice removed from the U.S. and sent back to Italy.
Giudice, 46, is a little over two years into a lengthy prison sentence handed down in 2014 over charges of conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, bankruptcy fraud and failure to file tax return.
The Real Housewives husband, is scheduled to be released in March 2019 but could see himself booted from the country before his sentence is complete.
The move came because Giudice requested placement in a residential drug and alcohol abuse program, something Fort Dix denied him because an ICE detainer had been put in place. Wife Teresa has floated the possibility of her husband’s deportation for years and said on an episode of “Real Housewives of New Jersey” that she was open to following him back to Italy.
Teresa said at the time: I mean, Italy’s a beautiful place to live. I wouldn’t mind, you know, I’m just saying. Listen, whatever God has planned for me, that’s what’s going to happen. I will embrace it the best I can.
Giudice, who shares four young daughters with his wife, was born in Italy and moved to the United States with his family as a child. Though he is a permanent resident, he never became a citizen, and now it’s bitting him in the behind.
We will keep you posted on the development of this…

Jackson Family Attend Funeral For Joe Jackson
Janet Jackson was front and center at her father Joe Jackson's funeral Monday, along with various other family members.
The service was held at Forest Lawn in Glendale, CA, where Michael Jackson is entombed.

Michael is in a mausoleum at Forest Lawn, and it's safe to say Joe's resting place will be nearby. It's interesting because, as we reported, Michael cut Joe out of his will, making Katherine and his kids the beneficiaries.

French Montana Ordered to Pay Waka Flocka’s Mom $2 Million
French Montana owes Waka Flocka’s mom — rap manager Debra Antney — nearly $2 million stemming from an old lawsuit and now she’s filed new docs to make sure she gets paid her money.
According to court documents, Antney’s company, Mizay Entertainment, filed for a sister state judgment stemming from a $1,999,588.41 judgment she won against French last year.
Mizay won the judgment in Georgia and the sister state judgment allows the company to collect in California.
Antney won her lawsuit against French in 2017 (and no one noticed) for $1,864,012.50 and was subsequently awarded $135,140.91 more for interest when the final judgment was entered in January 2018.
Based on the court documents, it seems French never responded to the lawsuit.
Antney initially sued French, who used to be a client of hers, in 2013 claiming he went behind her back to make deals.
Mexico Elects Leftist Andrés Manuel López Obrador In Landslide
Mexico elected leftist candidate Andrés Manuel López Obrador in a landslide victory on Sunday, according to exit polls showing the former mayor with double-digit leads over his competitors.
López Obrador, 64, mounted his third bid for the presidency with promises to rein in widespread corruption and fight poverty within the country. A former mayor of Mexico City, he will replace current President Enrique Peña Nieto and has promised to upend traditional party politics.
He would be the first leftist president in decades, according to Reuters.
López Obrador’s two main opponents, Jose Antonio Meade, the ruling party candidate, and center-right candidate Ricardo Anaya conceded the election late Sunday.
“For the good of Mexico, I wish him the very best of success,” Meade said in his concession speech.
López Obrador, also known as AMLO, has won mass appeal among the populace with sweeping promises to sell the presidential plane, cut his salary if elected and bolster the wages of the civil servants. He’s also pledged to save some $20 billion a year by combatting corruption, money that would be diverted to social programs, although it’s unclear where that figure comes from, according to The New York Times.
His victory represents a resounding defeat for Peña Nieto’s ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party, or PRI, which has lost popularity in recent years amid turmoil with President Donald Trump. All of the candidates had lambasted the American leader, but López Obrador has stressed the need to work with the United States, saying that the countries would “have to come to an agreement.”
“We are going to maintain a good relationship,” López Obrador told the Times last month. “Or rather, we will aim to have a good bilateral relationship because it is indispensable.”
Trump congratulated López Obrador on Twitter on Sunday evening, saying he looked “very much forward to working with him.”
His critics, however, have warned that López Obrador could escalate a trade war with the U.S., according to The Washington Post. Others are concerned that some hazy campaign pledges will be difficult to carry out.
“I am concerned that some candidates are making proposals that are impossible, because they’re very expensive,” one voter told The Associated Press before the election.
Sunday’s elections were the largest ever in Mexico with more than 3,200 elected positions up for grabs, including 628 members of the National Congress. Voters also cast ballots for some 1,500 mayoral posts around the country.
The electoral season has been one of the most violent in recent history as criminal groups have moved to assassinate more than 130 candidates and political operatives since last fall, the Times reports. Some parties have struggled to find people willing to run in local elections, and hundreds of candidates had withdrawn their names in fear.
