So, at this stage everybody has had a chance to catch up on the Fyre Festival documentary that was released on Netflix over the weekend. 

Everybody including Ja Rule. If you watched the documentaries, you’ll know that Ja was positioned alongside Billy McFarland as one of the brains behind the disastrous Fyre Festival that was set to take place in the Bahamas over two weekends in April and May 2017. You can get all of the background info you need without watching the documentary here

The 42-year-old rapper took to Twitter to slam those who viewed him unfavourably after watching the documentary, and insists he never defrauded anybody, and was one of the victims of McFarland’s wild scheme. On Twitter, he wrote:

I love how ppl watch a doc and think they have all the answers… Hulu PAID BILLY!!! That money should’ve went to the Bahamian ppl. Netflix PAID fuck Jerry the same guys that did the promo for the festival… I NEVER MADE OR GOT PAID ONE DOLLAR FROM FYRE… BUT EVERYONE ELSE DID!!! 

The docs clearly have Billy at fault but let’s blame the rapper lmao ok…

Many people who came across Ja Rule’s tweet were quick to point out the moment during the Netflix documentary when the rapper said, “That’s not fraud. That’s not fraud. False advertising, maybe. Not fraud.” 

While Ja Rule was busy giving out about it on Twitter, thousands of viewers who watched the Netflix documentary rallied together to raise $128,000 on GoFundMe for the Bahamian woman who paid kitchen staff out of her own pocket after the event.

Comedian Kathy Burke is in a bit of trouble after she called Prince Philip a ‘c**t’ on Twitter over the weekend. 

As you may remember, the Queen of England’s husband, 97-year-old Prince Philip was in a car crash a few days ago. Nobody was seriously injured, but according to the Edmonton Journal, the woman who was involved in the collision with Philip’s Land Rover Freelander has yet to receive any kind of apology.  At the time of the crash, the woman was driving with her friend and a 9-month-old baby in the back of the car, and luckily they managed to escape with only a few minor injuries.  

Kathy Burke, who starred in Kevin and Perry Go Large back in 2000 and more recently Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, doesn’t know why Prince Philip was ever behind the wheel of a car at the age of 97 in the first place, and she took to Twitter to let it be known. 

Followers began to express their disappointment at her statement, with one writing, “Well that’s just horrid. How could you assume it was some intentional act of malice? Horrible tweet!” To which the 54-year-old comedian replied, “Where did I say that? I just pointed out that driving at 97 yrs old is a very selfish act. It’s c**ty.” (Metro)

Supermodel Naomi Campbell has been publicly flirting with Liam Payne on Instagram. 

Is this a super unexpected celeb couple we should be keeping an eye on in 2019? Possibly. 

On Friday, Campbell posted a pre-show selfie before heading out for the Paris menswear fashion week and everything was completely normal, until Liam replied, “Perfection is a person… Don’t give me those eyes.” Naomi didn’t publicly reply to that message, but she left a comment of her own on one of Liam’s posts afterwards. 

Liam uploaded a photo of himself looking into a mirror, and Naomi replied “Beautiful soul <3″ to which, Liam replied with the response you’d expect from a 15-year-old boy, “Takes one to know one.” Get a room. (Cosmopolitan)
