George and Amal are pretty pissed
The first photos of George and Amal Clooney‘s children were published in French magazine Voici on Friday, which would’ve been sweet had the couple given their consent. But they did not. So naturally, Clooney is lashing out about pics of him and his wife holding their nearly two-month-old twins, Ella and Alexander, which were taken at their Lake Como estate.
“Over the last week, photographers from Voici magazine scaled our fence, climbed our tree, and illegally took pictures of our infants inside our home,” Clooney said in a statement. “Make no mistake: The photographers, the agency, and the magazine will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. The safety of our children demands it.”
Damn right. It’s one thing to take a pic of a celebrity’s kid when they’re on a red carpet, or at an event, but when they’re trying to enjoy private time, a famous family shouldn’t have to worry about photographers in trees.
E! News reached out to Voici and a rep defended the mag saying that because George and Amal are “public personalities” and people want to see the twins, the public deserves those pics.
“The birth of their twins, Ella and Alexander, had also been commented a lot, by themselves and their families,” read the statement. “The images published in Voici this Friday are a response to a public demand. People love George Clooney and have been following his life story for years now. Those pictures do not put in danger Mr. Clooney, his wife or their kids.”
Wow. They just don’t get it, do they? Danger is only one aspect of it; this is also about an invasion of privacy. The Clooneys will share pics of Alexander and Ella if and when they’re ready; until then, the paps need to give them their space.
Harry playing with kids never gets old
Prince Harry making an appearance anywhere is a good time, but when there are children involved, there’s something extra-special about those visits. The royal visited StreetGames’ Fit and Fed in London on Friday, and watching him interact with kids will put a smile on your face.

It’s the up close and personal stuff that’ll get you. Like when he’s actually playing handball with the kids.
Sassing it up with an equally mischievous boy.
Taking the game to a whole new level.
Chatting with the girl in net. Honestly, look how he’s looking at her.
This girl, however, is totally immune to Harry’s charms.
Serving up grub to the kids.
This boy can’t be won over.
But Harry makes a case for the food with his smile.
He’s impossible to resist.
Don’t ever change, Harry.
This photo of Kris Jenner’s 61-year-old body is totally Photoshopped, right?
Don’t get me wrong, Kris Jenner looks great and is in fabulous shape, but this bikini selfie Khloe shared with the world of her mom is asking us to buy a lot.
“Kris Jenner looking like a snack,” Khloe posted. “I see you mommy! #6kidsandbad!” Um, OK. But your eyes can’t help but immediately dart to that bright and pixelated curve at her waist. She’s had six kids, she’s not Jessica Rabbit. But keep doing you, Kardashians.
Lady Gaga is now embroiled in the Kesha/Dr. Luke legal battle
In case you thought the awfulness between Kesha and Dr. Luke was over, we’re afraid there’s still one lawsuit they have to deal with: his defamation suit against her. Yes, even after she dropped her sexual abuse suit, he’s still at it. And now third parties are being dragged into the mess, and Lady Gaga is one of them.
“Dr. Luke’s counsel served a subpoena on Lady Gaga because she has relevant information regarding, among other things, false statements about Dr. Luke made to her by Kesha,” read the statement to Us Weekly. “This motion has become necessary because Dr. Luke’s counsel has not been able to obtain, despite repeated request, a deposition date from Lady Gaga.”
TMZ reports that Dr. Luke’s lawyers want to talk to Gaga about texts she and Kesha shared that will prove Kesha asked Gaga to join her in a smear campaign against the producer.
Gaga has already turned over texts, E! News reports, but they were mostly redacted. Now Dr. Luke’s team wants to see the unedited version but Gaga’s saying they’re not relevant and basically none of their business. With a subpoena, Gaga will have to turn up at some point but we sort of love how she’s making the producer’s legal team wait on this one.
Macaulay Culkin and goddaughter Paris Jackson got matching tattoos
Paris Jackson and her godfather, Macaulay Culkin, continue their sweet relationship, and their bond is solidified forever thanks to matching tattoos!
Jackson shared photos of their trip to the tattoo parlor on her Instagram story and while Paris has dozens of inkings, the spoon on Mac’s arm looks to be the only one there.
The two have always been close, and Paris shares the occasional photo of the two together.
It’s so lovely to see the person Michael chose is still in her life. What more could he have asked for?
