Earlier this month we learned that a new digital currency was being launched called Coinye West which was inspired by everyone’s favorite rapper Kanye West. A couple of days later, we learned that Kanye sicked his legal team on the makers of Coinye West in an effort to shut down the cryptocurrency. The currency folks changed the name to simply Coinye and stopped using a cartoon of Kanye‘s head to promote the digital currency … and they went ahead with the launch of the service. Undaunted, Kanye‘s legal team continued to press for the shut down of Coinye and today we learn that they succeeded. The makers of Coinye have shut down their service and closed up shop. Coinye West is dunzo, y’all. More »

"We are being attacked with fishsticks and must launch sooner."
Remember a couple of days ago when we learned that a new form of digital currency had been named in honor of Kanye West and was due to launch later this month? When I blogged about it, I guess that Kanye would either LOVE the idea and buy up as much of this cryptocurrency that bears his name or he’d HATE the idea of someone else cashing in on his name and likeness and launch a legal attack. It turns out that the latter of the two turned out to be the case as West‘s attorneys have filed a cease and desist order against the folks responsible for Coinye West. It appears that the folks behind Coinye West had a contingency plan in place should Kanye file legal paper work because they changed the name of the digital currency, moved their internet servers to a different country and launched the currency last night to get ahead of the legalities of a lawsuit. Whether Kanye likes it or not, the cryptocurrency he inspired has now been released to the public. More »

The Battle of the Hollywood "It" Girls
Yesterday we saw a photo that Lindsay Lohan shared that was taken in a recording studio the has led many to believe that she has begun work on a new album. But, as you may recall, we learned way back in September that her fellow Hollywood “It” Girl Hilary Duff had already begun serious work on new music and today we get to see a new photo of Hil D. in the actual process of recording her new music. At this point, we don’t know if Lindsay is seriously working on new music but we do know, for sure, that Hilary has been working hard for the past few months on her musical comeback. Click below to see Hilary in action in the studio. More »
The 'Lohan Thug' Speaks
I’m Trent Vanegas from Pink is the new Blog and I’ve noticed how much fun the gossip-slinging is over here at Celebuzz so I figured I’d get in on the fun.
Over the weekend we heard all about the ALLEGED assault that took place in Miami, FL between Paris Hilton‘s younger brother Barron Hilton, II and some guy named Ray LeMoine, a man who has been connected to Lindsay Lohan. You know the story, all of these celebs and their hangers-on partied their asses off in celebration of Art Basel 2013 when insults were slung then fists were flung and accusations ran amok. All of this drama resulted in the mangled face of Barron Hilton, an extremely pissed off big sister Paris Hilton, an accused mastermind in Lindsay Lohan and a possible arrest warrant for “Lohan Thug” Ray LeMoine:
Thus far, we’ve heard from Barron Hilton
and from Paris Hilton
but we’ve yet to hear from the folks involved on the other side of the story. Lindsay Lohan
, smartly, got her ass out of Miami as quickly as possible and jetted back to the relative safety of NYC to avoid any further involvement in the drama. Ray LeMoine
got stuck in Florida to deal with the legal fallout and is finally speaking out about his side of the story of what he says went down with Barron Hilton
has blogged about his altercation with Hilton
and, naturally, it’s a juicy read. More »
"No one f***s with my family"
SO, over the weekend Lindsay Lohan allegedly got into some sort of altercation with Paris Hilton‘s younger brother Barron Hilton, II while they were all partying in Miami, FL for Art Basel (a notorious weekend of art, parties, drugs and alcohol). Earlier today, we learned that the Hiltons are planning to sue the people involved in Barron‘s assault, including Lindsay Lohan (even tho, by all indications, had nothing personally to do with the attack). Barron posted a photo of his injuries on his official Instagram profile and in the comments section, Paris vowed that “they” (apparently the guy who assaulted Barron and Lindsay, who allegedly called for the attack) “will pay” for what they did to her little brother. Ahem. It looks like another Hilton vs. Lohan feud is fully underway. It’s just like 2006 all over again. More »
Basically, Barron got his ass beat by one of L. Lo's people
Welp, I guess it was only a matter of time before controversy managed to eke back into Lindsay Lohan‘s life. For some reason, the still-recovering Lindsay decided to head down to party central in Miami, FL for Art Basel this weekend and wouldn’t you know it, she managed to get into a bit of reported trouble. Forget the reports that she was partying around a lot of alcohol and drugs, let’s focus on the allegation that she had something to do with the physical assault of Paris Hilton‘s younger brother Barron Hilton, II. The drama goes like this … Barron and Lindsay are at the same party, Barron starts talking shizz about Lindsay and Lindsay‘s people (supposedly at her direction) proceeded to beat the snot out of Hilton, leaving him bloodied and in need of medical attention at the local hospital (click below to see Barron‘s bloodied face). Lindsay says she has nothing to do with Barron‘s assault, even tho the two were filmed yelling at each other at the event. Lindsay, thy middle name is DRAMAAAA! More »
True Blood star Joe Manganiello has released a new book titled Evolution: The Cutting Edge Guide to Breaking Down Mental Walls and Building the Body You’ve Always Wanted which, the very long title informs us, is a fitness book that teaches readers how to bulk up and get jacked out. To promote the release of his book, Joe posted a childhood photo of himself back when he was a scrawny little basketball player on his official Twitter profile to show how far he has come with his physical fitness. The difference between then and now is striking. Click below to see the photo and then watch a promo video for Evolution that will attempt to get YOU to buy a copy of Joey Man‘s book. More »
Beyotches Stole Her Look?
Lindsay Lohan is reportedly lookin’ to score big time with a new lawsuit against the makers of Grand Theft Auto V because she claims that her likeness is being used in the video game without her permission (or compensation). Apparently, L. Lo and her legal team believe that a character in the video game is based on her likeness and they want to be paid — handsomely. As you can see in the photos below, the animated girl in the video game promo art does look a bit like Lindsay Lohan … but, in all honesty, the animated girl also looks like models Kate Upton, Shelby Welinder or any other sun-kissed young woman living in Los Angeles. Click below to see the side-by-side comparison photos and read what Lohan and her legal team are up to in regards to this lawsuit. More »
Debbie Rowe responds, ''I wouldn't shoot him but I'd buy the bullet'
Now that former doctor Conrad Murray has been released from prison after he was convicted of manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson, he is free to give interviews and tell his side of the story where his relationship with Jackson is concerned. Ever since people became interested in hearing what Murray has to say, he has gone on the record with various strange declarations and comments. In a new interview with The Daily Mail, Conrad goes ALL IN with his comments about his close relationship with Michael and he gives the world a LOT of personal and, quite honestly, disturbing information about their relations. Conrad claims that he was so close to Michael that he was allowed to “touch his penis everyday” in order to help fit him with a catheter. Yikes! People don’t get much closer than that. In response to Murray‘s comments in this interview, Debbie Rowe (the mother of MJ‘s two eldest children) has spoken out about her desire to see Murray dead. She doesn’t threaten his life personally but she does voice her desire to have someone else end his life. It’s crazy vs. crazy in these dueling interviews. More »
Well that turned nasty fairly quickly
So … remember that open letter that singer Sinéad O’Connor penned to popstar Miley Cyrus yesterday that attempted to offer a bit of advice and featured (what I believe was) genuine concern? Yeah, well, Miley decided to respond to Sinéad‘s letter by openly mocking her on her official Twitter profile. As I suspected, O’Connor‘s letter (and the advice contained therein) fell completely on deaf (and, honestly, childish) ears. In response to Miley‘s response, Sinéad responded with TWO new open letters which, well, aren’t as nice as the first one. Unfortunately, the adult and meaningful conversation that Sinéad attempted to start up with Miley has devolved into something less mature, less friendly and completely unproductive. Click below to read the She said / She said … and then said again that went down between these two. More »
