Beyoncé Is Buying a Sports Team
We know that paying attention to sports is not everyone’s cup of tea, but there might be a good reason to keep your eye on the NBA in the coming year. Rumor has it that Beyoncé is shopping for a sports team, and she has her eye on her hometown heroes, the Houston Rockets. As a mid-sized market team, her co-sign could bring international prestige to the Rockets, which just signed its star James Harden to a four-year contract extension.
The Kardashian-Wests Face Legal Troubles
Once upon a time, the Kardashians and Jenners stayed in the headlines thanks to entertaining family antics. These days, however, it seems like their only contributions to gossip columns are their constant legal controversies (think: Kylie Jenner’s copyright infringements). Indeed, Kim Kardashian is currently involved in a $100 million lawsuit over her endorsement of Lumee phone cases by a man named Hooshmand Harooni, who claims he invented the light-up case.
Meanwhile, Kanye West has filed a $10 million lawsuit against his insurance company Lloyd’s of London. In the lawsuit, the rapper claims that he paid hundreds of thousands of dollars in insurance premiums, while his insurance company has sought every reason not to pay the claims he made when he suffered a mental breakdown in 2016.

This fund will provide after-school programs for children, including supplies and transportation.

From the beautiful editorials starring the young popstar and the fact that she actually designed the range herself to the secret messages to her fans she left inside the bags, we’re smitten.
