On Tuesday afternoon, Ashton Kutcher was driving out of a Hollywood car-park in his Tesla when he struck a 19-year-old named Leo Marenghi. 

Marenghi was travelling on a scooter at the time of the incident and was “propelled into the air”, according to TMZ. Fortunately for Leo and Ashton, the 19-year-old only sustained a few scrapes.  He explained what happened to E! News:

He was coming out of a driveway of the Sunset Bronson Studios and there was a wall blocking so he couldn’t see me coming. Once I was in his sight, it was too late for him to stop and I got hit. 

To patch things up, Ashton agreed to pose for a photo.

Kanye West hit out at Drake after fans began speculating that Drake was having an affair with Kim Kardashian.

In recent weeks, Drake fans have been questioning whether the lyrics “Kiki, do you love me?” in Drake’s song ‘In My Feelings’ were referring to Kim Kardashian. In response, Kanye West shared a video rant to Instagram, basically saying it was bad form for Drake to use a name similar to Kim’s in one of his songs.

If I wasn’t in a medicated state, I might have had the wherewithal to say, “Hey Pusha, don’t diss Drake on my beat.” I spoke about that and took accountability for that. There’s people making rumours, or thinking that you f**ked my wife and you’re not saying nothing and you’re carrying it like that – that don’t sit well with my spirit. You know if I had a girlfriend from Chicago whose name was Reneta, and you were married to Rihanna, I wouldn’t make no song called ‘Riri’.

Diesel are facing criticism for deciding to use Nicki Minaj as the face of a new anti-bullying campaign.

In a new advert which uses the slogan ‘The more hate you wear, the less you care’ and features Bella Thorne and Barbie Ferriera, each celebrity wears a t-shirt with words that have been used to bully them. Bella’s reads ‘slut’, while Nicki Minaj’s t-shirt says ‘the bad guy’. 

It didn’t take long for Twitter users to express their confusion, with some writing “Nicki Minaj literally instructs her fans to attack people online. How is she gonna be the face of anti cyber-bullying?” Two people who claim to have been cyber-bullied by Nicki Minaj are Jerome Trammel and Wanna Thompson.

Trammel says that Nicki encouraged her fans to attack him after he called her out for slut-shaming in an interview earlier this year, while Thompson said that Nicki Minaj contacted her employer to have her fired from her internship, where she worked as a music journalist.

Diesel responded by tweeting “We’re here to support anyone who’s getting hated on, and Nicki is one of them.”
