Conor McGregor shut down Funderland so he could have the place to himself last night... it's The Dredge

A load of fresh celeb dirt.

EVERY WEEKDAY MORNING, DailyEdge.ie rounds up the best of the day’s celebrity dirt from the top to the very bottom.

Great to meet this little man tonight. My training partner Ciaran Maher, his son and his wife. Ciaran's son was a patient in the cardiac department in Our Ladies hospital before. I went in one day on the low a while back and visited all the patients and helped out in my way for the department, and nobody knew about it, I made sure of it, but Ciaran reached out to me out of nowhere thanking me for it and I was like how do you know about that and was blown away as he told me of his son and his journey and that his life was saved by the people in the cardiac department in Our ladies. I done this on the low and it reached right back close to me out of nowhere. Crazy. It's crazy how you just never know. I invited the little champion, my brother Ciaran and his wife today and it was great to meet the little man, thank you for coming.

Last night Conor McGregor revealed that he had rented out all of Funderland at the RDS for himself, his family and some friends. 

He shared a load of photos to Instagram, writing “The Monday blues are just a day and a colour.” Yeah, maybe if you’re rich Conor.

He even treated himself to a 99.

He also made sure to upload a photo of Conor Junior’s Bentley buggy.

Sure what else would you be doing on a Monday?

Tessa Thompson has confirmed that Lena was ‘not anywhere present’ during the ‘countless hours of work’ that went into the Time’s Up campaign. 

In November, LAPD launched an investigation into a case of sexual assault that was allegedly committed by one of the writers from Lena Dunham’s TV show ‘Girls’. Murray Miller was accused of sexually assaulting actress Aurora Perrineau, who filed a report on the incident with police in LA.

When the news broke in the midst of the Weinstein scandal, people were surprised to see Lena Dunham issue a statement in which she said that she ‘stands by Murray and this is all [she'll] be saying about this issue‘.

After Dunham was criticized for defending Miller, she issued an apology:

I never thought I would issue a statement publicly supporting someone accused of sexual assault, but I naively believed it was important to share my perspective [...] I now understand that it was absolutely the wrong time to come forward with such a statement.

After fans pointed to this and asked why Dunham had been involved in Time’s Up, actress Tessa Thompson explained (through Instagram comments) that Dunham had only shown up for the photograph and had not appeared to participate beyond that.

Lena was not present in our group during the countless hours of work for the last two months. [Lena's presence] was a surprise to us all. This is a time of reckoning. And for many, a re-education. So many women also have real work to do. I’m afraid it’s too nuanced a conversation to have on this platform. But I hear you. Know that your thoughts and words are not lost on me. It’s been discussed.

Lena has disabled comments on her Instagram photo of the Time’s Up photoshoot. (Metro)

blessed to have my security be my +1 at the netflix party 🙏

A post shared by Millie Bobby Brown (@milliebobbybrown) on

13-year-old Stranger Things actress Millie Bobby Brown continues to live her very best life.

After the Golden Globes, Millie Bobby Brown revealed the text messages she received from Ariana Grande in response to her outfit. Grande was floored and was not shy in saying so.

On top of that, the young actress has shared a photo where she’s hanging out with Drake. The pair both attended the Netflix after-party, along with Mary J. Blige, Nicole Scherzinger, Aziz Ansari and Pharrell Williams. Plenty of nice networking opportunities for a young actress there. Drake also shared a photo of himself with Gaten Matarazzo, who plays Dustin in the Netflix series. (XXL)
