Gemma Collins won't sue BBC for her trapdoor fall if they make a deal with her... it's The Dredge

Wrapping up a week of celeb dirt.

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

I’m really excited for tonight been working hard gonna let my hair down 💄💋💄

A post shared by Gemma Collins (@gemmacollins1) on

Last month Gemma Collins fell off of the stage at the BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards while presenting an award to the cast of Love Island.

The entire thing was caught on camera and happened on live TV. You can watch it here. Days later, Collins said she would sue BBC:

I’ve got to consult a lawyer, yeah. The BBC, they’ve not been in touch with any compensation or anything – or even an apology.

A Radio 1 spokesperson said that Gemma had received a full briefing before going on stage. Gemma denies this:

Not at one point did they say ‘If you move to the right, you are going to fall.’ They didn’t even tell me they were coming up from below.

The reality star was left with bruises after the accident. She now says she will drop her plans to sue BBC if they offer her a place on Strictly. A source close to Gemma says that she’s deadly serious about the ‘Strictly trade off’.

She has said to BBC that she will not pursue legal action if they give her a slot on the show. She loves Strictly and has always wanted to have a crack at it. She thinks this might be her chance to get on the show.

Gemma also announced last night that she will not be returning to I’m A Celebrity this year. (Mirror)

Star Wars actress Lupita Nyong’o has called out Grazia UK for editing her natural hair on the cover of their magazine. 

Following the footsteps of Solange who recently lambasted Evening Standard for editing her hair, Lupita Nyong’o took to Instagram to comment on Grazia’s latest cover page.

As I have made clear so often in the past with every fibre of my being, I embrace my natural heritage and despite having grown up thinking light skin and straight, silky hair were the standards of beauty, I now know that my dark skin and kinky, coily hair are beautiful too.

Lupita continued to say that she was happy to be on the cover of a magazine, in order to show other dark-skinned and kinky-haired people (children especially) that they’re beautiful the way they are.

I am disappointed that Grazia UK invited me to be on their cover and then edited out and smoothed my hair to fit their notion of what beautiful hair looks like.

She also said that, had she been consulted, there’s no way she would have allowed them to omit her native heritage. She reminded them that “there is still a very long way to go to combat the unconscious prejudice against black women’s complexion, hair style and texture.” She ended her statement with #dtmh.

LAPD have opened an investigation into Terry Crews’ report of sexual assault.

Last month Terry Crews opened up about an incident that occurred at a party last year. Referring to the huge volume of sexual assault and harassment stories coming out of Hollywood, Crews said:

This whole thing with Harvey Weinstein is giving me PTSD. Why? Because this kind of thing happened to ME. My wife saw everything and we looked at him like he was crazy. He just grinned like a jerk.

He probably won’t be grinning much longer, because a case was officially opened by LAPD’s robbery/homicide division, which also handles sex crimes. The suspect in Crews’ report is believed to be WME agent Adam Venit, who The Hollywood Reporter say was put on leave after the allegations were made.  (NME)
