Drake Gets Sued by Former Stylist Over Unpaid Shopping Bills

August 27, 2013 09:39:36 GMT


Grammy Award-winning artist Drake is being sued by his former stylist Michael Raphael for the amount of $76,490, allegedly the full amount that the MC owes him for shopping and other expenses he initially paid for when he served as a styling consultant for the rap star. Raphael claims Drake faithfully reimbursed him from when he was hired back in August last year and only stopped in December, the month when he reportedly racked up the said amount on behalf of the Canadian rapper.

Under Drake's employ, Raphael was paid a monthly consultant's fee of $39,583 that covered styling, clothing and graphic design for his OVO brand and other related services. It does not, however, cover shopping expenses that he incurred on Drake's behalf from such branded stores as Nike, Diesel, and American Rag.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler may team up for a second Golden Globe hosting gig. Deadline reports that the two funny ladies are approached to return as hosts for the 71st edition of the annual awards-giving show set to take place in 2014.

Unlike Ricky Gervais whose deal included an option for a second turn, Fey and Poehler reportedly originally agreed to take on the duty as a one-time thing with no obligation to come back. Due to the success of this year's ceremony which drew 19.7 million viewers, NBC and Golden Globes producer Dick Clark Prods now want them to come back for next year's show.

Confirmed: Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass Not Coming Back for New 'Bourne' Film

August 27, 2013 01:37:43 GMT


With the fifth installment in the "Bourne" film series being developed at Universal Pictures and having not found its director yet, Twitch reported earlier today that the franchise's original star Matt Damon would most likely take part since director Paul Greengrass, the only man Damon is interested to work with in "Bourne" pic, entered talks along with Damon himself to return. As interesting as it sounds, the report is unfortunately not true.

Sources close with the studio shut down the rumor, telling Variety that "there is nothing going on between the studio and Damon and Greengrass." That leaves Jeremy Renner and scribe Anthony Peckham as the ones, as of now, confirmed being involved in the upcoming installment. Renner will reprise role as the CIA agent Aaron Cross.
