James Packer and Mariah Carey dated some time ago. The two famous stars were actually engaged and were planning their wedding when they announced their split. Despite the numerous rumors that have been in the media about the reason why the two ended their romance, James Packer decided to remain silent and revealed nothing regarding what happened between him and Mariah.
Well, now, James changed his decision and opened up about his relationship with the pop diva. James talked about Mariah during an interview with Weekend Australia. The two separated in 2016 and James actually considers that dating Mariah was a “mistake.”
The star claimed that Mariah was great, but he wasn’t at the best time of his life. “I was at a low point in my personal life,” James explained. The casino mogul revealed that he was very stressed out and was dealing with some personal matters when he met Mariah for the first time. “She was kind, exciting and fun. Mariah is a woman of substance. But it was a mistake for her and a mistake for me,” he said.
The billionaire did not reveal the reason why their relationship ended, but it seems that they were not right for each other. The two dated for nine months and were already planning to get married. Some rumors claimed that the two got into a serious argument, while others said that James was jealous of Mariah. None of the rumors about the breakup have been confirmed.
Some sources claimed at that time that James was the one who ended the relationship and Mariah had no idea that he was planning on leaving her. Regardless of what happened, it seems that James does have a regret, but not related to Mariah.
During his recent interview, James claimed that he regretted that his marriage to Erica Packer ended. “It is my biggest regret that I let my marriage to Erica fail. It is what it is, and she is doing an incredible job with the kids and we are in a great place,” he said. He and Erica have three children together.
Francia Raisa, Selena Gomez’s best friend, who actually decided to undergo surgery to donate a kidney to the famous singer talked about this whole experience. Francia talked about this subject during an interview with Savannah Guthrie.
She said that Selena and she were living together at the time when she realized that the famous singer was dealing with some serious health issues. “One day she came home and she was emotional. I hadn’t asked anything. I knew she hadn’t been feeling well,” Felicia said. “She couldn’t open a water bottle one day. She chucked it and she started crying. And I said, ‘What’s wrong?’ and that’s when she told me. And she goes, ‘I don’t know what to do. The list is seven to ten years long.’ It just vomited out of me: I was like, ‘Of course I’ll get tested.'”
Francia also said that the whole procedure took place in an emergency process, meaning that she had all the tests done during the course of one day, and she knew immediately that she was a compatible donor for Selena, so they could continue with the procedure. Francia said that she and Selena spent together the day before the surgery, but admitted that she was a bit scared because there is always the risk of not waking up.
Francia was fine immediately after the surgery, but we cannot say the same thing about Selena. The young singer said that her doctors informed her that she had to go back into surgery because her new kidney was turning around inside her. Her second surgery lasted no less than six hours. However, she managed to overcome the issue with the help of her doctors.
The two ladies also explained that one of the most difficult parts of the whole process has been the recovery part. The two were only able to walk an hour each day, while the rest of the time they had to remain in bed. They remained together during the recovery process, as well. Francia and Selena have been best friends since 2009.
Following the Harvey Weinstein scandal, more and more women decided to open up about their own experiences related to abuse. So, now, Kitti Jones has accused famous singer R. Kelly of physical, verbal, as well as sexual abuse.
Kitti opened up about her experience during an interview with Rolling Stone. She said that she was abused by R.
Kelly for several years. The woman said that she met R. Kelly in 2011. According to her, the famous singer forced her to have sex with other women. Kitti said that she was scared of being “punished.” R. Kelly also allegedly made Kitti watch videos of him having sex with other women, while he was masturbating on that. She also said she witnessed the singer urinating on two women.
Kitti said she was kicked and slapped in the face by the singer when she asked him about a video part of his child-pornography trial. The allegations are not the first to be made against R. Kelly. In fact, the famous singer has been associated to similar claims about one month ago. Then, Jerhoda Pace accused the star of having a sex cult, and said that she had an underage sexual relationship with R. Kelly. Pace made these revelations during an interview on The Real.
However, it is important to mention that the first time when R. Kelly has been accused of sex-related offences dates back to July. At that time, BuzzFeed News published quite a complex story, indicating that R. Kelly kept no less than six women in his Chicago and Georgia properties. These women’s role allegedly was to fulfill his desires. The report went to make some shocking claims, saying that the women were actually punished if they failed to please the singer of if they broke any of his rules.
Of course, R. Kelly and his lawyer denied all these allegations that have been made in the media. A rep for the star said that R. Kelly is also perfectly aware of the claims that have been made against him. With regards to Kitti’s allegations, the rep said that it “is unfortunate that Ms. Jones, after public statements to the contrary, is now attempting to portray a relationship history with Mr. Kelly as anything other than consensual involvement between two adults.”
“Any claim of wrongdoing of any kind or of mistreatment of any woman by him is false, ill-motived and defamatory,” the rep also said.
Demi Lovato has definitely managed to create a lot of headlines lately. The famous singer has dealt with some criticism because she promoted sobriety while being high. The revelation was made by Demi herself in her new documentary, which also touches upon the singers’ battle with eating disorders and her sexuality.
So, Demi decided to reveal her story during her 78-minute documentary that was released in October. The documentary is entitled Demi Lovato: Simply Complicated and can be accessed on YouTube. One of the most interesting topics that Demi discussed during her documentary has definitely been her drug addiction issues. The star revealed how she managed to overcome these issues and stay on the right path.
Demi revealed during her documentary that drugs were a way for her to cope with bullying. She claimed that her drug addiction started when she was trying to fit in after being bullied for years in school. She was asked by a popular student to party, and this way she ended up drinking alcohol and smoking marijuana for the first time. Demi also revealed that she used cocaine for the first time when she was 17. At that time she was already working on Disney Channel.
“My first time doing coke, I was 17 working on Disney Channel, and I was with a couple of friends and they introduced me to it,” she said. “I was scared because my mom always told me that your heart could burst if you do it. But I did it anyways and I loved it. I felt out of control with the coke the first time that I did it,” she went on to explain.
Demi also revealed the reason why she was curious to try it. “My dad was an addict and an alcoholic,” she explained. “I guess I always searched for what he found in drugs and alcohol because it fulfilled him and he chose that over a family,” the star added.
Demi also said that she was 18 when she was first admitted into rehab. Despite the treatment she received there, the star said that she continued to use drugs. And she actually at one point promoted sobriety while being high. “We were in New York and it was clear that she was on something,” her manager said during the same documentary. “She was on air promoting this new way of life. I was like, ‘You’re so full of it.’ “
Famous Scary Movie actress Anna Faris has opened up about a series of personal subjects in her memoir.

However, although she wanted it to happen on her birthday, Anna had to postpone her plan because of a hospitalization. After recovering, the star claimed that she told her boyfriend that she wanted to have sex with him at lunch.
“That’s what we did. And it was horrible,” she said. “It was a solid C. I certainly didn’t come, but nobody comes their first time. At that point in my life, I had never masturbated. I had never even explored, so I had no help to offer Chad in terms of getting me off. But I wasn’t really in it for sexual pleasure,” the star went on to explain. “I was just head over heels for this guy, and at the time I thought if I was going to keep a man I had to give my p***y over lunchtime at his parents’ house.”
When it comes to her first marriage, Anna said that actor Ben Indra actually had to propose twice to her before she accepted to marry him. She said that at the moment when she was proposed to and accepted, she actually thought that she didn’t “want to tell my parents.” “In retrospect, I should have examined that more,” she said. Anna and Ben separated in 2007, after about three years of marriage.
The star said that she started to have feelings for Chris even before her marriage to Ben ended. The star claimed that she realized that she and Ben rushed into marriage and they actually did not have too much in common.

At that time, the famous actress said that she needed to have this medical intervention because of her ongoing battle with lupus. “I’m very aware some of my fans had noticed I was laying low for part of the summer and questioning why I wasn’t promoting my new music, which I was extremely proud of. So I found out I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my Lupus and was recovering. It was what I needed to do for my overall health,” Selena shared on social media at that time.
Selena was really thankful in her social media message. The famous singer thanked her team of doctors, but also her family. And of course, she was very emotional when sharing a message about her best friend Felicia. “There aren’t words to describe how I can possibly thank my beautiful friend Francia Raisa,” Selena wrote. “She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney to me. I am incredibly blessed. I love you so much sis,” she concluded.
Well, during her new interview, Selena claimed that she is 100% sure that her close friend Francia Raisa saved her life. “Because she did. That’s it,” the famous singer said.
“I guess I got to the point where it was really kind of life of death,” Selena went on to explain. “My kidneys were just done. That was it and I didn’t want to ask a single person in my life,” the singer also said. “And she volunteered and I did it,” the star concluded. This was actually the first time when Selena talked about this subject. Well, it surely seems that Selena is doing much better now.
Melanie Griffith has claimed during Women’s Brain Health Initiative panel held in Beverly Hills that she was diagnosed with epilepsy. However, the famous actress went on to explain that she was actually suffering from this disease because of the stress she had to deal with during her marriage to Antonio Banderas.
During her interview, Melanie claimed that at first getting a diagnosis was quite complicated. “They said it was an anomaly – they didn’t know what it was,” she said. “The last two that I had I was on a boat outside of Cannes – on a big yacht – and I was extremely stressed out. Every seizure that I had was at a point when I was extremely stressed,” the star went on to explain.
“I had two seizures, one they took me off the boat. I had this major grand mal seizure, and they took me to the hospital in Cannes and then brought me back to the boat. And then I had another seizure and I went back. They did the EEG and started to look at it seriously. When I came back [to the United States], I was diagnosed with epilepsy and nobody had said to me over a period of 20 years, no one paid enough attention to even diagnose me,” she explained.
However, Melanie is much better now. The star said that she hasn’t had any seizures in the last four years. However, she explained that this is also thanks to the fact that her marriage to Banderas ended. “I also got divorced, which is the real healer for me,” she revealed. “I’m not stressed anymore. It’s been three years.”
Melanie said that being a woman, having a husband and children, working and taking care of the house is really stressful. “As women, we take on family, we get the husband, we have the life, we have the children, we take care of the house, we also go to work, we can’t sleep at night because we are up with the kids,” the actress explained. “We have to do everything.”

She was asked to go to his room and Weinstein was waiting for her in a bathrobe. The actress said that he asked her to allow him to give her a massage. Weinstein also asked Ashley to watch him shower.
“I fought with this volley of ‘no’s’ which he ignored. Who knows, maybe he heard them as ‘maybe.’ Maybe he heard them as ‘yes’s.’ Maybe they turned him on. I don’t know,” she said. The actress explained that she managed to get out by promising Weinstein that she would help him choose a suit for the day when she would win an Oscar for one of his movies.
When Ashley met Weinstein again, he remembered the agreement. “Remember that little agreement we made. Think I got that script for you. Hey, just looking around for the material,” the producer told her. “I was coming right at him … He looked at me and he said, ‘You know, Ashley, I’m gonna let you out of that little agreement we made.’ And I said, ‘You do that, Harvey. You do that,'” she also added. She claimed that she made two movies with his companies, but she rarely saw him.

“The pediatric neurosurgeon sat Chris and me down to tell us that Jack had some severe brain bleeding and there was a chance that he could be developmentally disabled,” Anna said according to People. “I was in complete shock… So Chris and I did what we could, which was hold hands and hope and face it together,” the famous actress went on to add.
The actress went on to say that doctors were not able to tell her and Chris if Jake was going to have special needs until he was around 18 months old. The Hollywood star said that things were not simple for her during that time, but she adopted the right attitude. “I have to be as strong as I possibly can … I have to,” she said she decided then.
Anna said that everything they went through back then brought her and Chris closer. “These moments can be hard on couples, but for us it really brought us together,” the star said. “It felt like it was us against the world,” she went on to add.
