Worried for Pete
Mental health issues are not to be taken lightly. Just ask Pete Davidson and Kanye West. It all started on Thursday when Kanye alleged that Drake was picking on “people with mental health issues.” Drake didn’t respond, but did post laugh-crying emojis on his Instagram story so take from that what you will. Then Ariana Grande piled on and attempted to joke about the feud on Twitter (in a tweet that has since been deleted), but Kanye was armed and ready and fired back promptly.
I know Ariana said this to be cool and didn’t mean no harm but I don’t like even slightest level of slight commentary from someone I know loves and respects me pic.twitter.com/T9VXaIj9MX

For that, Ari apologized to Ye but not before Davidson praised West on Instagram, saying, “Bravo Kanye West for standing up for yourself and speaking out against mental health. I can’t explain to you enough how difficult and scary it is to be honest about stuff like this. We need people like Kanye. No one should ever point fingers at you for your bravery in speaking about mental health. I’m seriously disgusted.”
And because Ariana fans don’t like their girl being slighted in the least, they went on the attack, hard, to the point where Pete was driven off social media — but not before he posted a very troubling message, and the concern became very, very real.
This note from Pete Davidson posted on his Instagram account is frightening — and many of the comments are cruel. He needs support, guys.
Someone please check on him… pic.twitter.com/1OmohnWrEx

Celebs have had enough of the bullying and just want Pete to be OK.
Point being. Pete Davidson has been very open about his mental health. And b/c a relationship didn’t work out, tens of thousands of people he doesn’t know are telling him to kill himself.
Words have real consequences. And the people who bullied him into posting this? Shame. pic.twitter.com/lUCpahlG5u

We can be so insensitive. God bless Kanye & Pete. Being flippant about mental illness speaks more about you than them. Stop saying the word love & live it. Love is an action.

We need to be kinder to each other… Like I said on the show – it is okay if your holiday is not easy and happy. Sending love and light to Pete Davidson…

Pete Davidson … hang in there. There is a lot of help out here. Surrender to some love some where around you … today! Right now! And then … let in the help that will become available. I’m praying for you Pete. I’ve been there. It gets better.

And Ariana was there for Pete too. Though he didn’t want to see her. Understandable.
After Pete Davidson posted, what it appeared to be, a suicide note on his last Instagram post, Ariana Grande may have gone to the 30 Rockefeller, where the SNL is filmed, in an attempt to show support for him… whether he wants to see her or not: “I’m not going anywhere”. pic.twitter.com/1fyr0dhuUo

Turned out, Pete was OK. Well, as OK as could be expected.
Am hearing Pete Davidson is at SNL and accounted for.
We are thinking of you, Pete.
You are loved.
(And just a heads up, when you finally turn on your cell, it’s gonna go apeshit for a little while) https://t.co/erUaTcPSdw

According to reports, police checked in on Davidson on the set of SNL and he was accounted for. Now, can Ari’s stans leave Pete the hell alone?
Prince Harry won’t shoot
For the last couple decades, Prince Harry has taken part in the Boxing Day pheasant shoot with his father, Prince Charles, brother, Prince William, and other royals. This year, however, is going to be different. According to the Sunday Mirror, Harry is skipping tradition out of respect for Meghan’s love for animals/hate for hunting.
“William sees this as another concerning example of his brother being pulled away from his family by his new wife,” said a royal source. “Harry’s always loved hunting and it has provided them with a great chance to bond as brothers. But now it looks like Harry’s shooting days are over. It’s the latest point of contention between the Princes.”
That’s right, blame Meghan once again, because Harry is a robot and needs his wife to make up his decisions for him. Sigh. What’s next? The couple are going to turn their backs on royal life completely? Pfft. That’s what Samantha Markle has been saying, so it’s obviously not true.
Can Harry and Megs catch a break already?
Offset crashed Cardi’s headlining gig to try and win her back and it was basically the worst
Offset, continuing his campaign to try and get back together with Cardi B, took drastic measures on Saturday to get his ex’s attention. And it wasn’t great.
— Complex (@Complex) December 16, 2018
The rapper didn’t get the response he was hoping for — by Cardi …
Yo no cap. She was mad. she kicked him out and 30 seconds after she came back with a big smile like a boss and killed this gig. 🙏🏾✨ meanwhile I can’t even go pick up my favorite beanie from my X. Respect.
— Ⓜ.nn.rz (@OhManManManny) December 16, 2018
… and her fans. Oh, yeah, people were pissed on her behalf.
This is getting out of hand. He’s interrupting her work now https://t.co/YMV1ncYvM9
— Ivie Ani (@ivieani) December 16, 2018
No one will remember that Cardi was the first female to headline Rolling Loud. They will remember Offset crashing HER PLACE OF WORK to try to win her back. It’s not cute. And her team should be ashamed of themselves for facilitating his nonsense. Cardi is you client, not him.
— Alexis McLaren (@alexismclaren) December 16, 2018
This video makes me uncomfortable af. Offset should of take the hint and stop apologizing to Cardi. At this point Cardi dont wanna hear his apologies. Offset need to lay low for a while and think about what he has done. Nothing working at this point.
— Pretty Eye Hustler (@PretyEyeTrapper) December 16, 2018
Offset disrupting Cardi’s performance is like your ex running up on. you at your job in the middle of a meeting. This is not acceptable or cute. Or romantic. It’s creepy and unstable.
— Demetria L. Lucas (@demetriallucas) December 16, 2018
Anyone else troubled by this? Because this is harassment. And the fact that the folks putting on this festival were complicit in sabotaging and humiliating their first female rapper @iamcardib headlining for clicks is unethical. Nobody won. https://t.co/JDJrwwrlYj

Everyone talking about Offset wilding out. But what stands out to me is how graceful Cardi has been. She announced the breakup but she’s not talking shit about him (though she has every right to), and maintains respect for him as her child’s father while doing her own thing.
— William Ketchum III (@WEKetchum) December 16, 2018
Cardi has been seeing people blow her up saying that Offset deserves another chance, basically ignoring what she wants herself when she’s the one who was done wrong. And she’s still keeping composure. I think a lot of other people would understandably flip out
— William Ketchum III (@WEKetchum) December 16, 2018
Offset apologized for the interruption … sort of.
All of my wrongs have been made public, i figure It’s only right that my apologies are made public too. A nigga was just trying …..thank god I ain’t got no balloons sheeesh
— OFFSET (@OffsetYRN) December 16, 2018
But Cardi’s fans were still not happy.
Why cut her off on her stage time tho? During her job? What if she had done this shit to you? What if she had cheated then made your DJ stop the music and make a huge scene in front of crowd and put you on the spot? How would you feel??? Seriously man
— Virginia Lock (@kemma_winds) December 16, 2018
Cardi, however, is a class act — and defended Offset, urging people to be kind and stop attacking him.

What she said. Because if she’s able to let things slide, her fans should as well. Now move on, Cardi, and keep doing you.
Jennifer Lawrence denied Harvey Weinstein’s claim that they had sex
Nice try, Harvey Weinstein, but Jennifer Lawrence isn’t having it. In court documents filed by a Jane Doe, the unnamed plaintiff claimed Weinstein told her, “I slept with Jennifer Lawrence and look where she is; she has just won an Oscar.” Doe also alleged that the former studio head masturbated in front of her and forcibly performed oral sex on her.
Lawrence issued a statement to E! News that read: “My heart breaks for all the women who were victimized by Harvey Weinstein. I have never had anything but a professional relationship with him.”
She added: “This is yet another example of the predatory tactics and lies that he engaged in to lure countless women.”
Previously, J-Law — who won the Best Actress Oscar in 2012 for her role in Silver Linings Playbook, which Weinstein executive-produced — had this to say about the disgraced producer, “Just speaking for myself, I had known him since I was 20, and he had only ever been nice to me — except for the moments that he wasn’t, and then I called him an a**hole, and we moved on. He was paternal to me. So I needed a moment to process everything because I thought I knew this guy, and then he’s being accused of rape. We all knew he was a dog, we knew that he was a tough guy, a brute, a tough guy to negotiate with.”
She then, a couple of months later, offered her support to those who had been subjected to Weinstein’s abuse. “Harvey Weinstein and his company are continuing to do what they have always done, which is to take things out of context and use them for their own benefit. This is what predators do, and it must stop,” she told TMZ in a statement in February. “For the record, while I was not victimized personally by Harvey Weinstein, I stand behind the women who have survived his terrible abuse and I applaud them in using all means necessary to bring him to justice whether through criminal or civil actions. Time’s up.” Indeed.
Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger are Instagram official
Hmm, perhaps the engagement rumours are true. Chris Pratt posted a sweet collage of photos for girlfriend Katherine Schwarzenegger, in honour of her 29th birthday.
Don’t know what’s more adorable — her smile or that his nickname for her is “Chief.” Either way, both are too cute for words.
