The Wests remain intent on having the best time money can buy on their birthdays. Kim recently rented out the LA Staples centre for Kanye’s birthday, and of course North cannot have anything less.
So for her 2nd birthday, which was yesterday June 15, the family went on to Disneyland to have one huge bash.
In attendance was most of that huge family, minus Khloe and Kris. There was a party for North inside the park with lunch and cake, and there was lots of balloons. Guests were asked not to bring a gift- but instead were given passes so they could skip the lines on all the rides at the park. It was a jolly good day all around.
Chris Rock and wife Malaak are in court trying to agree on the final monetary settlements of their impending divorce.
The pair announced last year that they’re divorcing, and now the wheels for that long process is turning. They have agreed to 50-50 child custody; but it’s now left with the little issue of how much of Rock’s $70m fortune his wife is entitled to.
Court documents sighted by Page Six shows Malaak making a case to receive a huge chunk of the fortune: she says she gave up a career to raise their kids, and to keep herself busy did charity work on the side.
Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston’s daughter is to be taken home by her family from the care facility she’s in so that ‘she can die peacefully’.
Bobbi Kristina has been in a medically induced coma since February when she was discovered unresponsive in a bathtub. Since then her family has always disagreed on the right course of action, with some favouring taking her off life support because doctors say there’s little hope she’ll recover; but her father Bobby Brown holds on and hopes for a miracle.
Recent reports indicate that mindset might have changed. Daily Mail reports the family is planning to take Bobbi Kristina off life support, and bring her home to die in peace.
What else apart from being ‘high’ would convince you that something like this- calling the police to complain about a drug deal, is a good idea?

The recent flood has raised so many concerns amongst Ghanaians, including about the locating of fuel stations in very crowded localities.
Some speculated that those supposed to check these things did not, or that the fuel station had problems that went undetected. However the managing director of GOIL has come out to say that wasn’t the case.
The Managing Director of GOIL, Mr Patrick Akorli, said that the National Petroleum Authority just inspected them in February, and they gave them an ‘A’ grade.
Ahmad Lane, who used to be a background singer for Beyonce, is suing the legendary singer for allegedly stealing her hit song ‘XO’ from her.
Lane claims he wrote the original song, tentatively titled ‘XOXO’, and passed it to a fellow background singer. His lawsuit infers the singer passed it on to Beyonce, who used it to write the song that appears on her album ‘Beyonce’.
Beyonce response, according to RadarOnline, is that there is nothing similar between the tracks aside ‘XO’ appearing in the titles. She also adds through her lawyers that the claims are ‘vague and cryptic’, and that she’s an internationally recognised artiste who has won 17 Grammy Awards and sold 118 million records.
The Black Stars opened their 2017 African Cup qualification campaign with the best possible start, easily seeing off Mauritius by 7-1.
Braces from Asamoah Gyan and Jordan Ayew, complemented by a goal for Christian Atsu, and maiden international goals for Jeffrey Schlupp and David Accam completed the romp in Accra.
Ghana was heavy favourites, and never looked in danger at no point during the game. After Atsu headed the team in front, there was no looking back for the Stars against what was a vastly inferior opposing side.
Asamoah Gyan added two quick goals after Jordan had scored Ghana’s second.. Mauritius scored their consolation when Ghana was four ahead, a cross into the box completely misjudged by goalkeeper Fatau Dauda to hand Sophie the easiest of tap-ins.
The Black Stars are back in action on Sunday as they kick off their African Cup qualifiers against Mauritius.
This is the first competitive fixture for the team after the disappointing loss in the final of the previous tournament barely six months ago.
And to challenge us is the Mauritius national team, a true minnow on the continent but not a guaranteed win for Ghana. If Ghana has shown anything it is that we often fail to raise our game unless the stakes are appropriately high enough.
And they aren’t, not in the opening fixture anyway. There are five more games after this one against reasonably inferior opposition and the fear is that complacency would lead to a stale performance tomorrow.
Against Burkina Faso in 2006, against Zambia in the last world cup qualifiers, against Sudan- the Black Stars have shown a proclivity for not being good starters. That is what coach Grant must fight against tomorrow.

Half the world probably hates him but Mayweather continues racking up the millions with not a care in the world.
Mayweather fought in the ‘fight of the century’ against Manny Pacquiao and picked up the win and the bigger pay check despite almost everyone protesting the decision. His $100m check from that night helped him to a total of $300m and made him the highest earning athlete of the past 12 months.
